Reliable accounts that certain Mvr employees ( compassionate fellows, right to the end) are expressing sympathy for the looming drain on OUR business. Er, ahhhh..tx, boys, but, looked at a map lately??

Might wana do that. Just sayin.'

Ominous.\
The Grove City Mall area makes sense for the new Mini-Casino in play by Mt. Airy. More competition and saturation of the gambling dollar is always a concern. No OTB for horse betting a good thing if and when it is built. Of bigger concern is when the Supreme Court rules that sports betting is legal in all states. Slot players and horse players are like water and oil. A few slot players wander in the OTB at MVR and might bet $2.00 to show on number #3 while pointing at "that track over there". Most leave soon after. Horse players and those that bet on football, basketball, etc. are family. That's where the meaningful dollars will be fought over.

Whatever the case, Ron, Mvr will almost certainly survive long enough to serve our respective purposes.

And concerning the ignorance of slots players, seasoned horse-bettors that saunter to the window like Wyatt Earp headed to the OK Corral, lean down and rest chin in hand as if relieving the weight of the world from their shoulders, whisper to the clerk as if conveying the secret of life, and 10 min later fork over 6 bux for the bazillion 2 cent tickets they purchased absolutely enrage me. I could go Lou Ferrigno.
