Nonsense!Fox woods is a good example.Down a country road then a 'OZ' like structure appears.Surrounded by enormous parking lots.Self contained,a different world.Not unlike the glory days of "Grossinger,or the "Concord. "Casinos will replace those now defunct pleasure palaces.They will bring back all those jobs that were lost.Also all those "Bucks" back into our area.Nattering nabobs of negativism seek to inhibit the county's natural growth.They offer no alternative,for the benifit of all the people.Thanx

The stand against casinos is archaic. The race track has been a part of Sullivan County longer than most of us have stood on this planet. A more exoansive casino at Monticello Raceway would make no real difference to locals other than another source of tax income and hence improvements for all. It's time to accept our needs for Sullivan COunty jobs, tax base, and improvements and stop being selfish.
