    I drove by there this weekend and I’m exciting to see this move along. One more step in the right direction for the area.

    The flyer is atrocious. Not to mention there’s no indication on how to find out whatever this is.

    The “Jack” format is so 2008. Not that talk on the FM band is any better. The radio industry is soooo lost.

    Serious question – who did the promotion for this weekend? I only found out about the hitting competition and concert the night before. From the number of people who showed up, I was either not alone or one of only a couple hundred people who cared to see Tonic.

    Really good weekend though, and the turnout for the game was great to see.

    Last I was aware, it was Susie Mann/Gee and Rick Mann running the place.

    Completely biased because I built the new site, but I have to say wings over.

    Building plans for the casino are to go through the Downtown Commission…hopefully they can at least keep the thing from looking like a total piece of crap.

    Nope. As others have pointed out the amendment pretty much skirts the need to go through these types of commissions.

    The question has been posed to the City Attorney and we are waiting to hear now if it will be required to go through the Downtown Commission. I’ll keep you posted.

    Cool. I’m interested to hear your results.

    It’s really disappointing to see the attacks, distortions and misrepresentations just because you don’t agree with the outcome.

    For all people who are concerned – Do something more useful and attend community/city/governmental meetings/hearings/reviews and voice your concerns for the visual appearance.

    As someone originally from Cincinnati, I can actually speak to the outcome from nearby communities adding economic prosperity from a Casino. As with Argosy, Grand Vic and Belterra, the host communities have seen additional tax revenues and economic upturn via stores, restaurants and gas stations. It’s a great example to view, as the locations are much closer than anything in KS. I would think the amount of money that could be used for social services alone would be something to excite most people here.

    There’s really no reason to make many of the arguments laced with fallacies that have been thrown out in the previous few pages of posts. I respect the opposing viewpoint. Now it’s time to accept what the voters have selected, and help execute the projects in the best ways possible for the host communities.

    I admit that there are better ways of legalizing it. At this point i just have to given up hope of any of them happening. I trust that changes would be made in the future if they’re needed. Naive, i know.

    Actually I don’t live “in” Westerville, it’s just my zipcode… but thanks for trying. Also, I work downtown and spend more hours within city limits than out.

    And to directly answer your question – Yes, I would vote it into my back yard if it allowed me the freedom to play.

    I’ve not been this excited about Ohio legislation in a long time. I’m hopeful that the final results will let me legally play poker without driving 2+ hours.
