I think thats going to bring in more jobs and lots of entertainment for Mercer Co. I was at the Raise The Roof Gala and Eddie was there and told us he was gonna bring more to our town.(It was really cool meeting him too!)I will be so glad to have a nice place to go instead of either going all the way to Lex.,Frankfort & Danville Ky.We need to put our tax dollars in our own town.Now the next thing we need is something for the kids: like a bowling alley or movie theater!

As they should be. Buncha' idjits were bound and determined to tie so much red tape around the whole thing, now they can sit back and watch this place take off and count the lost tax revenue and jobs.
I'm all for planned growth and reasonably healthy zoning regs, but this was a no-brainer letting that one slip away.

I hope this place is successful we need a place where the people can go and relax and have a good meal and good entertainment. Also I hope it is where the older citizen can afford to attend on a lot of their limited income. The older citizen enjoys getting out just like the middle age and younger ones also.

He's Gotta finish the building first before any of us can get our hopes up about anything!!!!! I think all he is doing is using it for a tax write off because it shouldn't take TWO years to build!!!!!!!!!!
