Gambling Ideas Don’t Get Better Over Time

For 2013 we’re seeing a rehash of bad gambling expansion ideas that have failed in past years: slot machines that show old horse races, faster keno times, constitutionally empowering the legislature to expand gambling, and more. If we did not speak out, these ideas would be plaguing Nebraska already. Please help us keep the voice of reason in the debates.

Omaha World Herald   Jan. 22, 2013

Authorities are investigating the death of a Nebraska man whose body was found at a casino parking garage in Council Bluffs. The body of the 54-year-old Omaha man was found a little after 9:30 p.m. Sunday on the ground level of the parking garage of Harrah’s Casino & Hotel. Police Sgt. David Dawson says the man is believed to have jumped from the fifth floor of the garage around 6:30 p.m. Dawson says a note was found in the man’s vehicle and that “it doesn’t appear that anything is suspicious” about the man’s death.
