Local Casino Approved During Problem Gambling Awareness Week

This is more of a whimsical observation than a political statement.

Personally I don't think the Beloit City Council or the Rock County Board of Supervisors gave a hoot that this week was National Problem Gambling Awareness Week when they overwhelmingly approved a proposal by the Ho-Chunk Nation for a casino in Beloit.

One of the big sale points was the promise that payments from the casino to the county/city will replace (offset) property taxes, and who would oppose that?

P.S. I'll make a safe bet right now and suggest no one should start budgeting for or count on a reduction in property taxes any time soon - or ever.
