Country Crossing employees tell News 4 that they have been told to return to work Wednesday. They say the entertainment complex south of Dothan will re-open this Thursday.

There was a meeting between Houston Economic Development Association officials and Country Crossing employees this evening.

Some employees said they are ready to go back to work. They said they are glad their boss, Ronnie Gilley, is trying to get the business re-opened.

After the meeting, there was talk between Country Crossing employees of going to work for BamaJam.

Country Crossing officials still have not confirmed when and how the complex is opening.

Christian Ingram says the complex will re-open its doors Thursday and there will be bingo.

    I can't believe this mess! CC was only open for what a month, and people haven't gotten jobs since then! Ron Sparks is the LAST thing Alabama needs! The only thing he is running on is gambeling. You all are CRAZY if you think there is going to be that much money given to the school system by gambeling! I am so happy Coffee County wouldn't let that mess in!!!

    I TRULY HOPE THAT RON SPARKS GETS ELECTED THAT WAY ALABAMA WILL BENEFIT, OUR UNEMPLOYMENT WILL GO DOWN AND OUR ECONOMY AND EDUCATION FUNDS WILL GO UP. IF ANYBODY WANTS WHATS BEST FOR ALABAMA THEY WILL VOTE SPARKS IN.

    I love Alabama its my home. But i am ashamed of our goverment. what ever happen to we the people. Alabama supreme court ought to be ashamed.The reason we didn't get to vote is because the majority of the people want it.

    Yeah, Here we go again. My husband was so glad to get the call to go back to work. He couldnt even sleep last night. He had dreams of going back to work. But I told him I didnt want to burst his bubble but Don't count on it Riley will be there to do something. I give Ronnie Gilley all the credit for trying to put the unemployed back to work. I just hope he has a ace in the hole we don't know about. As he stated before he will not open if he can't stay open. My fear is get up there hopes to go back to work and then get the call like last time 2 hours before opening that they decided not to open. Just imagine getting the call to go back to work and the same day get one not to go back to work. What a coaster ride we are on. Riley just give up and leave it alone. More money in your pocket and better schools instead of laying off teachers and closing schools. What about stress on the teachers with bigger classes and no extra help with there students. Our children deserve a better education.

    Ron Gilley continues to try to do what is needed for this area... EMPLOY THE PEOPLE and let those that want to play electronic Bingo do so and those that don't can stay home. Everyone wins with Country Crossings open. Thank you Country Crossing owners and investors for sticking with the people here.

    I assume Country Crossings wants their day in court and this is a good way for them to get it. As soon as they open, Gov. Riley will order a raid and take possession of the machines. That way, Giley will actually have a legitimate case/issue in front of a Houston County judge. That should go over real well...
