Jumer's accelerates RI project -QCTimes
Instead of doing the project in multiple stages, starting with the casino, the Rock Island project will now all be built at once. According to the article, they hope to be done by late 2007.
Here's a longer article about it at QCOnline, but it'll probably be unavailable to non subscribers before any of you get a chance to read it.
Also, on the QCTimes online article, the comments have started out with 2 for the project and one against it. The one against it seems to underestimate how much people want to gamble, and acts as though no one would come from Chicago to here to go to a casino. In reality, quite a large number of people come down here for gambling. The problem is getting them to do something other than gamble.
