Country Crossing postpones reopening

Ronnie Gilley, developer of Country Crossing, announced Wednesday that the reopening of the development would be postponed because of threats from the commander of Gov. Bob Riley's Task Force on Illegal Gaming.
"In light of Mr. Tyson's threatening remarks yesterday regarding his eminent raid on Country Crossing, the owners of the machines at our facility advised they will not give the critical support needed for the operation of the project," Gilley said in a statement. "We understand the significant investment made by the machine manufacturers, and we are taking their suggestion to postpone reopening."
He said he was committed to reopening the facility.
Gilley asked all employees to show up to work on Thursday so he could address them and the media at 11 a.m.
