Friends,

We are entering the most important phase in our grass roots campaign. Testimony AUG 31 is essential and the deadline is coming up.


1. The Pa Gaming Control Board ...they make the decision... is having ONE hearing on the Mason Dixon Casino at the comfort Suites Inn on Baltimore Pike from 10AM into the evening on Tuesday August 31. TESTIMONY opposing Mason Dixon is essential to our victory. Individuals can sign up to speak for THREE minutes. If you are representing a community group your group with ONE representative gets 10 minutes. The deadline to sign up is NOON, this Thursday, Aug 26.
Your testimony WILL HELP.


THE PGCB APPLICATION FOR SPOKEN TESTIMONY IS AT http://speakforthefallen.org

You can use the same form to submit written testimony. If you cannot get off Tuesday, please use the same form to submit written testimony.
You don't have to be clever..."Please do NOT license Mason Dixon Casino or a casino anywhere near Gettysburg" is the basic message


THE PGCB APPLICATION FOR WRITTEN OR SPOKEN TESTIMONY IS AT

http://speakforthefallen.org


Written testimony can be submitted until Oct 31. Any letter with your name adress phone number will suffice as written testimony if you don't want to use the internet.
News stories with your comments are also good testimony. You can also send an e-mail but include all contact info. pgcb@state.pa.us

2. Please encourage at least three friends to testify!


3. We have entered the national arena with news. There have been four stories on national FOX channel:
the first fox story on the American Legion calling it "national disgrace"

and three stories on Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Assoc endorsement of casino. (one link is missing)

4. South Mountain Fair was a big success. IT IS A LIE that we have little local support. We were in the same room as the pro casino booth and saw that more came to our booth. Please speak up for your beliefs so your silent friends can speak up too! All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to do nothing.

Now is the time to push ahead!
Call me with any questions
Yours for history and community

They extended it through today (Sept. 1) anyway. Not sure if it will go beyond that or not.
