  15. Stronger ban on Internet gambling neededRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 23, 2015 | Middlesboro Daily News

Unless that opinion is challenged in court and successfully overturned, by a judge, there is virtually no chance of a business like Lucky 7's reopening by simply moving to a zone where it would be legal under Ashland's current zoning laws.
