Gilley Tries to Force Standoff with Task Force Before Election

Ronnie Gilley sent the Wiregrass area all a-flurry with what appears to be manufactured rumors involving the Indians and a purported plan to reopen Country Crossing as early as Wednesday, May 25.

Almost immediately, folks closely following the casino corruption drama pegged it for what it was — a vain attempt to generate earned media — and votes for pro-casino candidates — prior to the June 1st primary.   Better luck next time, Mr. Gilley.

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) — Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley says he’s looking at possibly reopening the electronic bingo casino and surrounding attractions in Dothan.

Country Crossing’s gambling hall, restaurants and inn have been closed since late January to prevent a raid by the Governor’s Task Force on Illegal Gambling.

Gilley said former employees have been contacted to see if they are available, and a decision about reopening may be made Tuesday.

The White Hall Entertainment Center in Lowndes County has also been closed, but two other major gambling halls, Greenetrack in Eutaw and Victoryland in Shorter, have remained open.
