People of Cedar Rapids who want a casino here should get in touch with the state gaming commission. ... They should know how little is given back by Riverside Casino.

In my opinion, the competition would be a good thing. Dan Kehl (Riverside owner) is already rich with his three casinos and he should have the competition so Cedar Rapids could get some needed help. We need to keep more of our money here.

Try to attend the public meeting when it comes to Cedar Rapids and give your opinion.

Cedar Rapids should have the benefits rather than Riverside. Some would still go to Riverside for a change but most Cedar Rapids people would really like to have a casino. Too bad we didnít have the support a few years back because we would be helping our own and Riverside would be making a plan for their own.
