 I am sorry if I offended you. I think the CWPT does much good, however they sometimes waste money on things that do not fall within their relam. I am glad you feel the casino issue is a Pennsylvania problem. I do feel it could impact other areas and should be watched closely. While the casino is not in Gettsyburg proper the problems it could cause could impact Gettysburg proper.

 Pennsylvanian elderly were told the lottery would benefit them and they have seen little of the millions of lottery dollars. The casinos that will be built in Pennsylvania will do little to help anyone but the people invested in them. As a New Jersey resident I am sure you know the Atlantic City casino millions of dollar fail to help most NJ residents. If I could help you get your taxes lowered I would, I can't even do anything about mine.

Steve thank you for your reply. Again if I offended you I am sorry. If you feel I do not belong here tell me and as I told Javal I will not post here. Plese read my reply to Javal's reply to my post.

I was not offended at all.  Am all for having a debate on the subject.  That said you are talking to someone who considers Gettysburg my second home, and care very deeply as to what goes down there.

As for AC here in NJ, You are most correct.  Only folks that money helps are those who own the casinos.  What else is new? :)

As for impacting Gettysburg proper, the same can be said for the new Visitor Center being built down there right now.  The storeowners are still having a fit as to the new location of the place.  As for the Casino, I hope it is not built, but if it is, we'll just have to deal with it.  Believe me, if it ever encroaches on Battlefield land, I will be the first one down there to try and stop it.

Regards from the Garden State,
