Too bad the legislators can't move this fast with the school funding mess we've had to endure for years and years now while they just ignore the court order.

They should look into Eminent domain to take over the Hilltop. Now that would be exciting!

I think this will be a great site for the casino .This makes more since than any other place . 123 acres will be a great size to handle the casino and parking ,make sure they have room for campers and semi trucks . no camping but someplace to park. they will have room for a nice hotel. All sounds great. Lets get It built now so we can start spending money ,more taxes,and more jobs.

Isn't it amazing how the Dispatch's position has changed from:
1. No casino in Franklin County because we didn't vote for it
2. Put it anywhere as long as it doesn't affect John Wolfe's investments in the family-friendly AD.
If Penn National doesn't pursue the AD location, one of its shareholders will surely file litigation against Penn National for violating its responsibility to investors. DOes anyone think that Penn National will walk away from a perfect location to a location that is the laughingstock of Franklin County?

What a great idea---TAKE BACK COLUMBUS!
Show the titans that they don't run the city. They might lead Coleman around by the nose, but how they invalidate an election result? Someone should start a TAKE BACK COLUMBUS page on Facebook to counter all the shell organizations like Stand Up Columbus that are fronting for the Dispatch.

Who is going to pay for this STATEWIDE ELECTION? Why didn't Coleman complain about the location before we voted in November? I'm guess just more waste of OUR TAX DOLLARS!

One would think the organization using the Ohio Constitution to further their own ends and get a casino monopoly should reasonably have to pick up the cost of the next consititutional amendment to continue their monopoly but at a different location.
The legislators who let this happen are not stupid. They are greedy. "Stupid" applies to the voters who let this travesty happen, without any idea of the impact. A decent education, absorbed, should have stopped this. As we dumb down, we vote as the wind blows, and the suits take advantage.
Guess it's our own fault.

not bad, but the how is the question, take the hope from the west side.
