I 've talked to Senator Stever who sponsored the Instant Race Machine bill that passed the Senate, I talked to Rep. Sietz who is pushing the same bill in the House, Where it still sits. Charles Ruma Put Skill Games in Columbus Track, Beuhler park, along with River Downs to make a point, that if Bars and gas stations can have Games of Skill so can the tracks. I don't like games of Skill on every corn there are not Regulated or Taxed. I know that the Manufactures offered the state $1000 a year per machine in taxes at 40,000 machines, thats $40 million dollars. That a lot of good that could be done for seniors and schools. but the state must not need it. My Idea to save the Horse Tracks,add to the Instant Race Bill,# Hr 118, No Skill games with Cash payouts, except in the Ohio Horse racing Tracks. The simulcast bill passed under Taft when he just didn't sign it, it became law in 10 days. Tell goveror Strickland, just don't sign the instant race bill, go on vacation Ted!!! The Harness ass. said he want to be Hillary's VP , like thats going to happen, he's trying to carry the state for her in 08. (NO Slot, No Hillary) SAVE Ohio Horse Racing Industry give them the Instant Race Machines. Oh With Indiana getting Slots in 08, Now I Read, the Governor of Michgan wants slots in her Tracks Too. When Valley View Slots & Track, is Built in 08 on Rt 442 between New Castle 12 miles from the Ohio Line That along with Presque Isle, and The Meadow 30 Miles south of Pittsbaugh and the Pittsbaugh casino to open in 08. Thats 4 locations on Eastern Border. THERE NO DUMB are we!

You've got to wonder how stupid the state of Ohio is? We keep gays from getting married. Allow anyone to carry a gun. The lawmakers don't know how to follow the decisions of the state supreme court regarding public school financing, and yet we are practically the only state that isn't on the gambling bandwagon. We'll be completely surrounded by gambling but won't allow it. The stupidity is astounding.

Well need gambling. We have nothing else. No steel mills. No jobs. No nothing. Maybe we'd be better off as a gambling tourist attraction. Vegas of the Midwest! VOTE YES for casino gambling in Youngstown.

People aren't betting here because they're going to any other state in the US and betting while playing slots or poker at the same time! WAKE UP OHIO!

Dropping off isn't the word. I've been at Thistledown for more than 20 years, the past
four have been the worst. Friends of mine go to WV all the time and this past weekend, there were more than 30 names on each waiting list for the tables. Some people waited over 3 hours. People said that most of the cars in the lot were from Ohio, plus buses. Ohio is now surrounded by the casinos.

I have the Plain Dealer about this, I have written the leaders of Ohio about this, but to no avail. Ohio is the biggest loser. To run this state, you have to be stupid or paid off. The excuses the governor gives is really stupid. No games of chance, they want games of skill. The lottery is really a skilled game.

Religion still runs this state. We can't have real gaming because then St. *insert name here* won't make any more money on their bingo games.
