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.
