Gettysburg Hearings Begin - Monday 10th of April 2006

PENNSYLVANIA – As reported by the Evening Sun: "Chance Enterprises public relations consultant Greg Beuerman has had a busy couple of days.

"He's been preparing for today's public hearing, when the state Gaming Control Board will hear testimony from Chance, government officials, community groups and individuals about the investor group's proposal to build a slots casino near routes 15 and 30 in Straban Township.

"Beuerman believes they should listen to the Gettysburg Borough Council, which recently agreed to testify for the casino in exchange for a minimum $1 million annual revenue from Chance…"
