BEFORE WW-- 2 THE FOLKS IN CANADA USED TO REFER TO TORONTO AS 'TORONTO THE GOOD.' tHE CITY WAS SHUT UP TIGHTER THAN A DRUM ON SUNDAY. A DEPARTMENT
STORE EVEN PULLED DRAPES OVER ITS DISPLAY WINDOWS ON SUNDAY. AS A RESULT, THE NATIVES ALL FLED SOUTH TO THE STATES FOR ENTERTAINMENT. tHEN AFTER WW-2 , THEY GOT SMART AND GOT RID OF THE BLUE LAWS RESULTING IN THE NATIVES STAYING HOME AND KEEPING THEIR MONEY IN CANADA. nOW THE NATIVES OF SUCH PLACES AS OHIO POUR INTO ONTARIO`S CASINOS DEPOSITING MUCHO BUCKS. NOW WE HAVE "OHIO THE GOOD" AS ALL THAT OHIO MONEY FLOWS TO ONTARIO AND NEIGHBORING STATES. HOORAY FOR "OHIO THE GOOD".

First we need to rewind and cut half the salaries and bonuses out of the Ohio lottery staff. We are being ripped off people. The state atty general needs to investigate this department next. Lets just make public the salaries and bonuses these people make and I know it will shock most.

Don't gamblers like to smoke? Is Ohio going to be attractive to smokers? Won't a lot of them go to PA or WV anyway?

Pennsylvania will be a non-smoking state in the not too distant future.Our grandchildren will one day hear stories about how smoking was allowed everywhere at one time and they will have a hard time believing it just as I have a hard time believing that when I was a student at YSU, we were allowed to smoke in class.
I lived in Nevada for 15 years and was witness to m,any people who had ruined their lives chasing their gambling losses. Don't take it from me. Do a little research and you will see that the cities that thought gambling would cure their ills are suffering. If we had casinos here, each of us would be bailing a family member out,who couldn't control their habit.
As for the jobs it would create, most of them would be unskilled and low paying and would do nothing to keep your college-educate children from leaving to pursue the careers that their education had prepared them for.
I hasten to add that I am in no way affiliated with any church or anti -gambling group whatsoever but merely a person who has seen what gambling can do to people who are looking for an easy way to make a buck and end up losing everything instead.
Furthermore, any money spent in a local casino would be money that wouldn't be spent in many of the restaurants and other businesses that are wobbling now. We would just be shifting money from those places to the casinos.
As for tourism, you jest. We need to make things here. We need to update our local economy and upgrade our schools. We can't honestly look our children in the eye and say" stay her and grow old and let us get to know our grandchildren, look, we have gambling".
