Opposition to a proposed casino 1/2 mile from the Gettysburg NMP
I just got finished reading the LeVan's Financial Spigot blog. I listened to Bob Durgin's show today.
Are we reaching the masses? This latest info about LeVan's recent financial contributions, basically buying his way into the hearts of our legislators to better secure his shot at a license....the disgustingly biased poll just released...the misleading information on the Mason Dixon website....even our own governor doesn't get it!
I can only hope and pray that…Continue
I'm putting this news under blogs because its an important piece of investigative journalism.
This author missed all the contributions LeVan made to Rendell BEFORE the law was passed in 2004.
He also missed the fact that the casino is 1/2 mile from the Gettysburg National…Continue

How many more days till this turkey is out of office? I'm sorry. I know Susan always says take the high road, but when it comes to Ed Rendell.....can't bring myself to do it.
Is he kidding me?
It's closer to the Maryland border than to Gettysburg? We've clocked out the distance from the Park to this new location....have we clocked out the distance from the proposed site to the MD border? Just curious. I haven't seen any numbers on this…Continue
Multi-flora rose and a Gettysburg Casino
My father in law told me that in the 1950’s the government came to our farm and offered him a great deal. They gave him free plants that would grow quickly into a beautiful flowered natural…Continue
A casino here will provide jobs but will cost even more jobs in the rest of Adams County. Why?

Creating the illusion of wrongdoing is a classic intimidation technique, designed to shut people up.
No Casino Gettysburg would be strong even if I were gone completely. NCG is the cry of history that will not be re-written and never be silenced. It is the cry of community, of families and residents, that want health and safety.
Intimidation is a technique that is used over and over again with all sorts of lies and innuendos, but so far I have seen nothing that is truthful. The…Continue

I guess that I will need to call up Keith Miller and see if he would like to join me in offering a class in BASIC statistical concepts and quantitative methods to our friends on the Pro-Casino ticket.
I have read at least two different articles today that stated that No Casino talked only about emotional issues. So, I have to ask...where the heck were these people when Keith and I were talking? Did they loose track of themselves for a few minutes? Blacked out? Blocked out…Continue
Well we are certainly sorry we ended up not being able to make it last night. I've watched the footage and it looks as though you had a fantastic turnout and it was a very productive meeting. We do hope to make it to the next one scheduled for next month.
I hope people out there really understand that it's not about the gambling, it's location, location, location. This is just too close for a lot of us, too close to something so personal and so significant. You can't tell me…Continue
