Lala, Do you know that your e-mail comes from Minneapolis, MN? Why do people say things that they don't know about?
I actually do live (summers) in Florence (winters in Springfield so I can attend college at the UofO) and people are alot happier since the casino has brought in so many jobs. Not only the jobs that are through the casino, but jobs that have opened up because of the influx of people the casino brings in. New restaurants, new tourist shops, even new city positions. Thank you casino!
