The West Virginia state "senate authorized a new casino in Franklin, a 721-person town near the Virginia border, earlier this month."

Hard to find much info at all, I'm guessing 2014. Looking to draw from Charlottesville and Staunton VA I guess. When it opens, it will be the closest to me after my upcoming move.

My dad was born in Franklin, 100 years ago. They didn't
get electric till after WWII. About as rural an area and
as hillbilly as you can get. I was there a few years ago
and its like taking a time machine back to the 1970's.

Bob, do they still have the front parlor furniture covered with plastic. Only removed for guests after the funeral ?
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

Plastic? Furniture? You think they're rich folk?

I think you are confusing the media's portrayal of "West Virginia" and "Redneck" and not the way things really are. Many probably consider Mountain Dew the stuff that's on the high grass in the morning.

If you're from W. Virginia, then Mountain Dew is moonshine.

I have relatives all over WVa and they are Redneck as
hell. They speak a foreign language, have mullet haircuts,
and drive rusty pickups.

Women run fast in WV, so their brothers don't catch them.

Or the guy who introduced his wife and his sister,
and there was just one woman standing there.

We joke, but I know a woman, gone now, who
was from WVa and was repeatedly abused by
her father and brothers in the 40's. She never
got over it and was never good with sex the rest
of her life.
