P'ville will be a loser in this deal.. Cecil Co will lose out too. The casino is to make money for it's owners.. are they in Cecil Co? No. There will be a drain of money out of Cecil Co .. a net loss.

The casino will create local decent paying jobs. Local businesses including the outlets which are struggling to stay in business will benefit from day trippers. The casino and its employees will pay taxes on their earnings. All one need do is look up the road to Chester, PA where things are slowwwwly starting to improve in a city with a totally diminished tax base.

Slots will obviously bring needed money to the State of Maryland, the county and to the town. It will support local businesses and hire local people that are in deperate need of jobs. It will grow and inspire the growth of Bainbridge with it's mixed uses and be supported by the people that are rapidly moving to the area, partly by the BRAC movement. This is a win win situation.

You may be right, however in the short term the amount of revenue coming into the area just in the construction phase will be a big boost to the local economy. And even if in the long run the casino becomes a bust who cares, Penn National Gaming is a publicly traded company. The share holders will be hurt not Cecil County!!!! Besides Penn National is a very lean company and they are growing in a tough economy,,, go figure...
PS; Constrution has started.:-)
