To the Editor:
Radio and TV ads are constantly broadcasting and showing the number 1-800-BETS-OFF.
Why in the world would we want a casino on the little English River in Washington County?
It is impossible for me to believe voters and supervisors of Washington County would be nšive enough to think a casino would bring jobs to our county, jobs that would provide a living for people. Even if persons would be paid for part-time work, there would be many more part-time problems.
Not everyone comes away from gambling tables or slot machines a big winner -- in fact, few do.
I hope the casino doesn't come to the English and Washington County and we keep building our towns to be healthy and strong with the good, old-fashioned Midwestern work ethic and remember there really isn't any "free ride."
Those opposed need to register to vote and VOTE NO to the gambling casino in Washington County.
