Ok, is it just me or does the casino look hideous from the outside? I cannot believe it's taking as long as it is to do the "renovations" to the exterior. It looks worse than Aztar and I thought that was impossible.
At the rate they are going, the place will be closed before they get finished renovating it.

Do you have a brain in your head? Do you know that the richest man in Indiana owns that thing and that he is the 68th richest man in the USA? Do you really think he will allow it to fail. If you do, you are stupid.

Why yes, I do have a brain in my head. One that made me smart enough to quit that place while I was ahead.
But you sir or madam, if you can't answer the question, then why bother throwing in the two cents about my intelligence and or lack thereof? All I wanted to know was if anyone knew why on earth the richest man in Indiana (to use your good words)would allow something that obviously should be bringing him in money, to sit looking like a fallen in building?
Any answers, and please, if you're going to insult my intellect, please remember I have a French Lick education.
Thank you, drive through....

AAAAHHHH, a scorned former employee....did it occur to you to look in the parking lot as you critiqued the casino construction project and note that it is full on most days???? That could have some bearing on the completion of the work in a more timely manner.

I'm not a former scorned employee. I'm just a former employee, big difference. I'll still go and have dinner and have the niceness to stop and talk to my former coworkers and supervisors.
Oh, and the parking lot in front of the hotel, the small lot? Please, take a look at the empty levels of the parking garage.

Back-yard, thanks for the info. I hadn't heard a whole lot.

Yeah, just what French Lick needed, A Liquor store! Couldn't open a YMCA or Boys or Girls Club, oh no, more booze so the drunks who flock to the casino have a place to stop on the way home. Nice...

If he goes bankrupt the worst that would happen is Harras or another Gaming Giant will buy it, that's Cook's plan probably, get the town looking good, with money flowing though it and ditch it for profits...

And it's all about profits, If they could get the school to burn down, they would...to free up more retail space in town, who knows what will happen..

BYD: If you think the town board is so bad and you are so wise, get your name on the ballot. It is pretty easy to do. It is also easy to sit back and criticize those who give of their time and try to do the right thing, which is what it appears you enjoy most.

BYD, Bill Cook and Gail Cook have done more for humanity than you could ever think about. In 2005, 62% of the high school students atSV were on free or reduced lunch, now only 30%, that is providing opportunity for people to pull themselves out of poverty and be proud of it!!! BY THE WAY HOW IS THE EYESORE LOOKING NOW????
