DILLSBURG -- A former long-time employee of Williams Grove is finally going public about her agonizing billboard battle with the speedway.
The late owner of the track gave the business to Sally Loh years ago as a token of his appreciation, but Loh says Williams Grove Inc. won't turn it over.
She has kept her legal ordeal private; but after years of waiting, she is tired of being ignored by Williams Grove.
Now her life is partly fueled by frustration.
"I just want what's rightfully mine...what this letter states," said Loh, who worked for Williams Grove for 35 years. "(Then) I will walk away. That's all it is."
The 2003 letter is from the late Morgan Hughes, the owner of Williams Grove Speedway, and is notarized. Hughes appreciated Loh and her work so much, he gave her the track's billboard business. Loh says she used to sell the advertising on the signs around the oval, which are seen by thousands of fans each week.
Hughes died in 2008.
Loh stopped working for the company shortly thereafter and she's been trying to gain control of the business ever since.
"I hear the races from my house every Friday night," she said. "It's in my mind and it's always coming back again. Why can't this be done?"
The billboard business generates about $30,000 a year, according to Loh. She is willing to 'sell' the business back to Williams Grove for it's fair value.
There is a sense of urgency because Loh's husband of almost 40 years, Al, has been diagnosed with cancer. The hard, cold reality is this: the money from that business will help support Sally Loh when Al is gone.
Al Loh shared the news of his cancer diagnosis with the rest of the family last November.
"I think it was hard in November when everyone found out," he said, wiping a tear away from his eyes. "But now, I told (the family) whatever happens, (will) happen. (God) will decide now."
Sally Loh says the last time she heard from Williams Grove was last summer.
CBS 21 News called and emailed the lawyer for Williams Grove Inc., John De Virgilis, but did not hear back. The track was inherited by Hughes' daughter, Kathy. Messages were left for her at the other businesses she owns.
Loh's lawyer, James P. DeAngelo of McNees, Wallace & Nurick LLC, told CBS 21 News Sports Director Jason Bristol "the preference of Sally is to settle outside of court. Williams Grove Inc. has never offered to resolve this."
Sally Loh has had enough. She says wants what was given to her; for all of her hard work -- for herself and her family. She just wants the frustration to end.
"Why can't this be settled?" she asked. "Why can't we get an answer? Why can't we do something?
"We don't get answers no matter what we do and I don't know why."
