I never mentioned anything about an "idiot". Work a day in your shoes??? I would love to. After working on the construction team during the project that would be an easy day for me! Does Bill Cook sign your paycheck? I believe it's written by Benchmark. Also, you must have mistaken Bob Lauth from someone else, Jerry Denbo maybe? Bob has far too much class to act in such a manner.
class act huh? is that what they call it when me as a security officer has to escort lauth and his team out of the casino because they are to drunk to see straight. well if thats the case the "lower class people " of french lick have class coming out of their wazoos.

Rumor that Denbo is leaving legislature to work for horse tracks.

personaly i am glad to see that lauth is out and cook is in. it was lauth that hired benchmark to manage the resort and they was laying people off left and right to line their pockets. we were understaffed to begin with and thanks to lauths great management team we lost more people all for the sake of a dollar, they didnt even care if the guest wasnt recieving the attention that they payed for and deserved. now that cook is in control maybe things will finally get better for the guest and the workers.
Where do you get your facts? I was on the project 24/7 from start to finish. I was in EVERY meeting w/Cook, Lauth and Benchmark and I will tell you it was Lauth who wanted Benchmark's incompetent idiots out of there. Before you type, check the real facts!!!

At least they are spending money in the place. It must have been a lot too as their drinks are as weak as water. What do you think happens when people drink? Bill Cook needs to stick with medical devices. You don't see Bob Lauth playing with needles do you?

GOOD!!! Denbo is a snake in the grass who talks out both sides of his mouth. The Orange Shirt group is made up of 80+ year old women who would support a squirrel if he said "I will bring jobs to Orange County". GIVE ME A BREAK, get this guy out of public office. BTW, Cook Group's Steve Ferguson HATES Jerry, that ought to tell you something.

Jane Doe sounds like a disgruntled Lauth employee, word is that Cook is spending millions to fix the Lauth Screwups.....stick to Best Buys and Home Depots, leave historic restoration to the experts!!! I do agree on the Denbo issue, he needs to be put out to pasture, maybe someone will run against him. He is already threatening the new commission I have heard.
