It is totally ridiculous to stop gambling in Kansas. Why send all those dollars to Missouri? It would just make the Village West that more attractive to visitors and Kansans alike.

I never understood letting the Woodlands go down rather than give them something to help keep them going. Some idiots in Topeka would rather see mulit-million dollar structures crumble than save them and the jobs of those people.

What is wrong with you politicians? Just as a footnote, I am not a gambler and I see the bad things that it can bring, however, I am tired of paying all the taxes in Wyandotte county!

Please, get a clue!!!!!!

I think it's great. I do go to the casinos on the Indian Res. in the N.E. Kansas. I am hoping that once the state gets involved with their own gambling, that maybe the state taxes, (personal,etc.) will drop some.

i doubt it tax dollars are like chocolate theres almost never enough....but it would be interesting to have a casino near wichita with the new wild west world opening up and the downtown arena plans wichita could grow quite a bit....not shure thats a good thing or a bad thing though, i kinda like "small town" kansas

but as long as we dont try renameing the city "new las vegas" or something corney like that i suppose i could get used to it

With Kansas being one of the highest taxed
states, with nothing to bring in revenue,
like big bussiness, them parks, etc. Resorting to gambling might help. If only
the Local Goverment would contain themselves on new ways to spend the money.
