It's more free press for the Anthony Casino which this paper seems to be in favor of.

That's what I pretty well thought also, until I was told a story by a manager of a S.Calif. casino. This manager caught an employee of Indian decent, walking off with $3,000 from the casino and turned him in. This thief was verbally reprimanded and no charges were pressed, plus he was given his job back in the casino, all done by the Indian officials of this particular tribe. Just goes to show you that it's not always the white man that makes money from these Indian casinos, their own people make money, even by walking out with it.

The person sitting next to you in church, the man in line at the grocery store, or one of your co-workers; any one of these could be involved with a gambling problem. Imagine your grandmother committing a crime to support her gambling addiction. I am a recovering alcoholic, gambler, and have recovered from other addictive behaviors. I published a book, Gripped by Gambling, where the readers can follow the destructive path of the compulsive gambler, a prison sentence, and then on to the recovery road.

I recently published a second book, Switching Addictions, describing additional issues that confront the recovering addict. If a person who has an addictive personality, doesn’t admit to at least two addictions, he’s not being honest. These are two books you might consider adding to your library. I also publish a free online newsletter, Women Helping Women, which has been on-line for more than ten years and is read by hundreds of women (and men) from around the world.( ). I was interviewed and appeared on the 60 Minutes show in January 2011, which was moderated by Leslie Stahl.
