Wow...very surprised the donation was accepted. Seems like the right thing to do here was to give thanks for the offer, but kindly decline. Doesn't anyone on the school board care how this money was "earned" ? Gambling, sales of tobacco, alcohol, etc. And they refuse to pay taxes. Should public schools really be accepting donations from Casinos?? What type of message does that send to our kids? Yes, money is money, but sometimes your stand is more important than money. Next thing you know they'll be accepting a donation from the KKK for choosing white as a uniform color!

Sounds more like a bribe.
