Vernon Downsis doing very well unfortunately for them they have to give half the profits to the state and are burdened with hundreds of fees and regulations that Turning Stone does not have..NY State has screwed Vernon for years

Vernon Downs has been paying taxes since day one. Why penalize them? They should be approved for gaming. This will garner more tax dollars and the expansion would result in more employees, something the area is desperate for.

This deal with the Oneidas is just plain stupid. We need to stimulate our local economy by creating business not by locking them out.

Will this deal lower our sales tax? Will it lower school taxes for VVS or Oneida residents? How would it benefit any resident of the county? We won't see any difference. Better for the community to allow Vernon Downs to expand, at least we will see some unemployed neighbors find jobs!

Again I don't blame Ray Halbritter at all , I blame our politicians for not enforcing the law . Cigarette and Gasoline sales to non Indians at Save On stores have absolutely nothing to do with the land claim issue . Ray was so much smarter as a lawyer knowing the longer he drags this out over 20 years the more money he will make. And now he's so powerful he can cut what ever deal he wants

If you can't beat them join them, everyone can benefit.Remember 25% is a lot of beans.Especially if they open casinos statewide.Welfare can even get a raise every year with such revenue.
I'd rather see the bums and deadbeats get jobs at the casinos than more money to squander at the casinos.
