Re: “City-manager system loses shine

You have to drain the swamp on a regular basis and when you do all kinds on nasty critters show up. All forms of government spiral down. Vigilance and a very large pump is required. Even ten years later nothing has changed. But at least we now have Trump.

Re: “Local 'leaders' fuss about Quapaw plans for a casino

There is no way that Oaklawn will let this happen. They will spend whatever it takes to stop it. You can bet on that. Just like they got the lottery commission disbanded because it was about to bring in KENO.

Re: “Arkansas Lottery Commission embraces keno, monitor games

This is not only good for education it is good for local communities. As of now all forms of betting in Arkansas take place at two monopolies. Oaklawn and Southland Park. Oaklawn brags about the 1.2 million they have given to scholarships over 8 years. That's less than 150,000 a year.
These monopolies have taken the life out of other areas of the state by selling the people that supported them down the river. People will be able to make some small bets without getting stuck in a "casino environment".
Let other parts of the state have some of the action. Oaklawn is now about to expand 300%. If the assembly is so concerned about gambling why did they vote to have Oaklawn and Southland only have it.
I bet that these monopolies are behind this attempt to stop the lottery.from having Keno. Hypocrites.. .
