If it’s redacted, then they are hiding something. Period.

Seems awful shady to me that once Mike Veon re-appears that this casino business pops up. And that picture doesn’t look like a mini casino to me and doesn’t sound like it’s described as a mini casino.

In my humble opinion, it’s a Trojan Horse of organized crime.

Correction, John Q. It’s so obvious that it’s more like parading Secretariat around and asking for backers and bets.

When it comes to crooked county mismanagement it can be compared to Rita Crundwell Treasurer of Dixon, Illinois but nobody will drill down and find out what is really going on in Beaver County.

Seems a bit odd that the impact will be nothing when it comes to negatives, but wonderful when it comes to positives.

Either there will or will not be an impact on the community.

Our “Royals” in Harrisburg see all the traffic at these various casinos and come to the conclusion people have a lot of disposable income, raising taxes should not be a huge burden, plenty of cash to go around after they receive their “cut” from the developers.

In my work as a labor representative, Over the years, I have had to study hundreds of Environmental Impact Reports. It is not a question of whether or not any project has any impact on the surrounding communities, but rather the degree of impact both positive and negative. I do not recall ever seeing one redacted in any way, much less redacted to the extreme that this one is. The public is entitled to know!

Well, to be very blunt, that casino will create more jobs than the entire turnpike exit “Economy zone” on 18 between Koppel and Morado and will provide more jobs than the entire 16 mile tolled stretch of I-376 between Chippewa and New Castle. a So build it and stop waiting for the development that has NEVER come to that area. Ha. Ha. Ha.
