No casinos. Hot Springs has gamblng that is plenty. The lottery has just started and is already havin issues, it was not planned properly, to many loopholes.
Casinos = crime, prostution, organized crime, loss of income to families, loss of family structure. Arkansas does not need casinos, we have beautiful land, clean, clear water, wonderful people.

I think it is a wonderful idea and hope it comes to pass. We need the revenue and the jobs it would bring. As far as crime we have that already as does any other city. Bring it on.

T%he casino is one of the greatest ideas I have heard in a long time. You say it will bring loss of income to families but I don't see how that is possible when it will provide jobs. Think of how many people it takes to run a casino. You need managers, security, waiters, dealers, hosts/hostesses, cashiers, casino hosts and a slew of minor jobs like sanitation. We already have crime and organized crime very old fashioned concept these days. And sorry to break it to you but we already have prositution and lots of drugs in Harrison. Mr. Wasserman come on and bring your casino. Let me know where to apply.

ROFLMBO...... casinos make crime and prostitutions and loss of family income ans structure? hmmm, people will drive farther and do btw to do the casino thing, there are prostitutes in Harrison already and well, loss of income and family structure...its already here and has nothing to do with a casino. Please, really, if you could find one single thing to blame we would all be happy if that was all it took to clean up morality.

If the casino was to come in to Boone couny. There would be more projects that will come to Boone county. We would like to bring in a project with the casino that could create 1,000s of more jobs, training,education,entertainme nt and more.
