To call Timmy an idiot misses the true point of view. Timmy is not coherent of which [he] speaks.

Timmy lacks any experience of the world around [him]. Timmy is not a bad person. Timmy is like Jethro,from the Beverly Hillbillies.Timmy means well yet can't get out of [his] own way to make a point.

Welcome

I was under the impression they were going to build one in Marble. What happened to that? They sure were flying their Lear jets in and out of the Murphy/Andrews airport there for awhile.

Hopefully a company other than Harrahs will run the casino. The Eastern Band really needs to take a close look at the way that company runs the casino in Cherokee.

Cherokee Scout had an article Wed 8/07:

"Casino land purchase completed"

Murphy After years of hopeful speculation and widespread rumors about a casino coming to Cherokee County, the project is on its way to becoming a reality. Officials with the Tribal Casino Gaming Enterprise of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians closed on the sale of the property Friday. Cal Stiles, chairman of the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners, is looking forward to breaking ground breaking, likely in October.

Subscription is required to read the entire article. Anybody know if there was more to it or not. If so please provide it....thx.

According to Wenz, there was a positive 2 percent effect on house values for homes in the
area of a casino, and positive spillover effects to neighboring in-state regions. He noted that

A particularly important finding for policy makers is that the benefits associated with a
casino depend inversely on population density. Casinos are more likely to create net benefits
in areas where population density is low.

In the case of low density areas it appears based on the Wenz study that gambling has
brought prosperity, rising incomes, and possibly higher home prices. Wenz has noted the
inapplicability of the conclusion to urban areas. Accordingly, the Wenz study seems more
relevant to the impacts on incomes in rural areas (gaming appears to have a positive impact
where not a lot else is happening and day trippers are bringing some money) rather than the
impact of gaming on home prices.
