Funny how they can use

Funny how they can use Volunteers to help direct traffic at fires and accidents and close those roads but they cant close a street for 2 hrs with the same people. Political posturing by the police chief is all i see.

Not True

"When they arrived at a house on Bailey Hill Road, Grovo was assaulted by a man and police were called."

Grovo threw down a $20 bill and asked if anyone wanted to fight for it, So he got what he wanted.

Oxford Casino's Hiring practices prevent local hires

Oxford Casino Hiring Practices:

Don't post anything negative about the casino or you will get banned and booted from their page. So much for freedom of speech. I asked questions about their hiring practices and was removed from the page so i will continue to ask Here and on other pages. Here are the questions i asked.
" I find it very disturbing that info contained in a credit report that is not accurate will keep people from obtaining a job at the Casino. Is this the way the casino will get around the local hiring process. I was 1 of the first to submit an application for employment and now find out a month later that i will not be allowed to work there because of inaccurate info in my credit report. My job history with 10 years at 1 job along with owning my own business will have no influence as to my being a great employee. This is a very sad day for oxford as a lot of good people have fallen on hard times and have had to let bill slip and fall into collection because of the situation they are in and now you are going to tell them that they cannot have a job because of this. Very sad indeed. so whats the deal? can you explain to me how my credit report make me a bad employee? people have hard times and sometimes need to let some things slide or they cant eat or house their children how does this make you a bad employee? some people have in accurate info in there credit report that takes months to fix if at all. i called Kim Gerard and asked this and was told i would be considered if i fixed my credit in 8 days Really ????? so if i pull money out of my you know what and pay off items on my credit report i am suddenly not a thief of bad employee anymore. I was the Director of Operations for Oxford Plains Speedway for 10 years and delt with thousands of people on a daily basis not to mention manager of Oxford Plains Snow Tubing and owned my own businesses that i just sold but my credit report will keep me from being hired by Oxford Casino. You will not find a better employee than i would have been and i live 1.5 mile from the casino. this is very wrong on so many levels and you guys need to get this fixed. I guess you don't want to answer my questions or they are above your pay grade so please forward my concerns to someone that will. I have kept all this in Private hoping for a response from you, but i now see that your business practice will be to not answer legitimate Questions. Please have someone respond to my questions.
