They are getting ready to build another Turkey Hill directly across Georgesville where George’s restaurant stands now. Not too exciting, but many are overjoyed that it isn’t another used car lot or check cashing scheme.January 6, 2014 12:28 am at 12:28 am #370850

I used to go to the casino when they had some decent acts go through. I haven’t been back since around March. Sounds crazy but they need decent acts to attract customers, not just endless rows of slot machines and $10 minimum black jack.
