Business as Usual for Country Crossing

It's business as usual down at Country Crossing despite rumors of a possible raid by the governor's illegal gaming task force this weekend.

Those rumors were put to rest after the head of the task force, David Barber, resigned after recently winning $2,300 dollars at a legal casino in Mississippi

Late Friday, district attorney Doug Valeska sent a letter to Governor Riley asking him to quote "suspend any further involvement in Houston County".

Country Crossing officials say they’re happy that D.A. Valeska has stepped and say won't let this on-going saga dampen their grand opening celebration.

“We were made aware of Doug Valeska's letter to the governor last night, along with I think everyone else. We could not be happier with the decision he has made to bring some civility to the case to come inside and talk to our people and find out what we're doing in here, something that most everyone else has refused to do,” said Doug Rainer with Ronnie Gilley Properties.

Country Crossing has a full slate of musicians performing Sunday including Lo-Cash Cowboys and Lorrie Morgan.

    Nice to see somebody has enough backbone to stand up to the hypocritical slim that's running this state and make an effort to at least try and handle things in a civil manner.

    Why would the Governor even consider his raid on Country Crossings when only a few miles away the Indians have that nice elaborate casino in Atmore? Is there some connection here? Sounds probable to me.
