I agree that we need more jobs here for sure. When gamling was first introduced to Louisiana they sold it to us by telling us all the wonderful things that it would do for our schools. We would get all kinds of revenues from the Casino's and video poker businesses. I see our schools are just as bad off, actually worse today.
I know several people that have gambling addictions that had never had a problem before it came to our state. It is fine to say if you can't handle it don't go. But it is much harder for people with addictive natures. It is just as strong as alcohol or drugs to them. I know that they will gamble after they become addicted whether they go next door or drive to Marksville.

I am not saying that a casino in Winnfield is a bad idea when you just look at the jobs ideas it sounds fine. But look around at our state and tell me for sure what you see that gambling as a whole has done for us. Can you find one major good that it has done except for jobs?

Just look at the big picture and then decide!

To the poster who wanted to know what gambling in our state has done for our schools, ask any of the thousands of students who went to college through the TOPS program. That's how it is funded.

Dude, basically you could have just pointed it out. It's the monkeys that have Winnfield in the shape it is in. Lake Providence went to the baboons and it is nothing at all anymore. Well, except for a huge oak tree where the boons sit around drinking 40 dawgs and smokin blunts. Winfield is another Grambling...without the college.

Winnfield has gone down the toilet in the past decade. Between the hippo crits at FBC, the worthless people who buy themselves into local public offices and the piss poor law enforcement oh yeah let's not forget the pillars of the community who sit on their front porches trading food stamps for dope. For god sakes u people just threw a parade for a convicted police chief. Winnfield once had 3 movie theaters, bowling allies, 2 golf coarses, swimmimg pools. When I was in school winnfield was playing and beating 4 and 5 A schools now we have to settle for 2A schools. I could go on but what's the point. In the next decade winnfield will continue to slip away and become a town the likes of lake providence. Y'all just keep living in your delusions, vote for johnny ray, keep dreaming of big industry, go cash your disability checks, come home and sit back out on your porch, flirt with the neighborhood prositute, smoke you another dubi, and wait for the first of next month.
