I appreciate all the Hulman family has done for Terre Haute, but they've dropped this town like a hot rock. It's their money and their business, but I hate to see them sell out.
    Putting everyone with an agenda for no good reason on notice.

    Every single real estate, business asset and human capital asset that Hulman & Co. owned even the personal care taker and friend (my aunt) of the late Mary Hulman George - good riddance!

    People worried about Gibson and his convention center and Gibson and his casino. He coulda just stayed in the trash business and out of all this drama - trying to make TH a better place to live all while making a buck or three for himself in the process. Good for him - thanks for trying!

    I rarely get to TH anymore, excluding Roselawn to place flowers on my family grave site. Didn't Gibson purchase the Forest Park multiple land tracts bordering Markle Mill Dam in NTH? Any idea what his plans are? If he's planning on developing an upscale housing project, I sure wish he'd sprinkle a little influence around NTH, which has become the "ghetto" of Vigo Co. The Otter Creek basin still periodically floods, which is why a new $1.5m firehouse was built 1/2 mile north of the old one (formerly located across the street from the dilapidated HS built in 1917 & still standing). Until Otter Creek develops a FLOOD CONTROL/CONSERVATION DISTRICT (which was closely defeated in '72 by mostly Clay County landowners), you won't see much activity as far as re-investments in that area, thanks to the ever-present threat of O.C. floodwaters.

    Naaa it's a big dick contest... Not really that big of a deal. Danville trying to keep up with IL they can make this about Terre Haute if they want to - but Terre Haute can still get people from Marshall, Paris, Robinson, Casey - 70 is a straight shot. They might lose some folks from Attica, Covington, Lafayette area that we might have pulled in - but it's really a lot of hype about nothing. Being first one to build a casino in Vegas didn't stop other casinos from being built. Not suggesting this is Vegas or that I wish it was - just saying that it doesn't matter who is open first or second in my opinion.

    who knows -- neither community will be anyone's first choice when it comes to a Casino, nor has a population base with the disposable income to make a difference; $$ coming into either casino will simply be taken from other entertainment options.

    Probably a lot of truth to that.

    Hard Rock Casino will be the bard if it passes and Spectacle gets the bid... Should be a pretty nice place.

    Hard Rock Restaurant and bar - perhaps a hotel. Could be legit.

    Hard Rock is known to invest or partner with locals to build multi-use arenas and stadiums attached to the casino. I wonder if plans could be bigger than we are guessing? An hour from Indy and Bloomington...

    A Hard Rock in Terredise? Highly Doubtful, as in never gonna happen
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_R...nos_and_hotels

    From today's IBS
    Indiana casino revenues continue to tumble

    While overall state funds continue to swell, one revenue source in particular is leaking badly: riverboat casinos. Revenue from the state’s 10 casinos sank by nearly 27 percent in August, compared to the same month last year, state officials report. Continuing a trend dating back to 2009, the shortfalls have been attributed to increased casino competition from neighboring states and overall economic anxiety. The state’s two racinos boasted a different dynamic, with a slight revenue increase from last year. AP has more, while noting that all bets are now off on casino revenue, given the introduction of sports wagering on Sept. 1.
