Pope Co. Casino


((DONNA)) IN 24áHOURS A CASINO IN THE RIVER VALLEY WILL BE A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION.. AGAIN. THE POPE COUNTY QUORUM COURT WILL BE HOLDING A SPECIAL MEETING. FOX 16’S STEPHANIE SHARP HAS MORE ON WHAT WILL BE TALKED ABOUT. ((STEPHANIE)) THIS IS A HEATED TOPIC FOR THAT COMMUNITY. THE QUORUM COURT WILL BE DISCUSSING A RESOLUTION REGARDING AMENDMENT 100 áá WHICH IS THE CASINO AMENDMENT. ACCORDING TO THE STATE áá THE RACING AND GAMING COMMISSION LOOKS FOR A LETTER OF SUPPORT áá OR A SUPPORTIVE RESOLUTION áá FOR A CASINO.. BEFORE THEY CAN GET THE RIGHT TO OPERATE IN THE COMMUNITY. IT’S UNCLEAR NOW áá WHAT TOMORROW’S RESOLUTION WILL BE… AND IF MEMBERS OF THE POPE COUNTY QUORUM COURT WILL SUPPORT IT. THIS HAS BEEN A HOT TOPIC FOR A YEAR NOW. PEOPLE HAVE STRONG FEELINGS ON BOTH SIDES. (MICHAEL FORD/ SUPPORTS CASINO IN POPE COUNTY) it will bring a lot of other things we’ve been wanting for 30 years that seem to be sitting still by the local officals (MARY COHOON/ AGAINST CASINO IN POPE COUNTY) I don’t think it will help produce the type of community I would like to contuine living in. At my age I won’t be leaving THE QUORUM COURT MEETING TOMORROW STARTS AT 5 PáM. ((STEPHANIE)) THE COUNTY EXPECTS IT TO BE A PACKED HOUSE. ((DONNA)) NEW HEALTH CONCERNS POPPING UP IN MASSACHUSETTS
