“People that have that income and have a car say get rid of them, because they can drive to the mainland. But what about the people that like walking around their town and using the local businesses?”

An effort by Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. to expand its property is another sign that the resort's small business industry is facing extinction, local business owners say. via Press of Atlantic City

The local coverage of the land grab scheme has been pathetic. Local media, when they cover it at all, play the affected people off as goofy malcontents, standing in the way of progress. Truth is the Pinnacle people and the city tried to pull a fast one and got caught. But you'll never hear that from the coverage. The business owners and residents in the targeted area are prepared to go to the State Supreme Court, if necessary, to fight the eminent domain land grab. And they have lawyers who have been successful at the appeals court and supreme court levels. I wonder if the residents of AC have any idea how much the legal fees of the city will be to fight this on behalf of Pinnacle.

Pinnacle has more than enough land on which to build, if they ever do build, which is highly unlikely now. They do not have the money to build anything in AC. They will end up selling the land to finance projects underway in other parts of the country, i.e., South St Louis County, MO, which must be completed by 2009; Sugarcane Bay in LA, and Baton Rouge, LA. And do not forget the Kansas project, 650 million committed, if they are selected. What they are asking the city to do is help them to increase the site for sale.
