Joint City/County Meeting, September 21, 2007 5:00 p.m.

City/County endorsement of Boot Hill Gaming/Butler National Casino Management Application Proposal

Gee, guess no else needs to apply, huh. Wonder if the previous business connections between the city commissioner (Smoll), the county commissioner (Goodnight - on Boot Hill Board, too) and Boot Hill Gaming Inc. might be an issue -- no wait -- they aren't (currently) on that Boot Hill Gaming Board [and it seems that Jeff Thorpe speaks for Butler National Gaming, an out of town business].

That other applicants might have a better offer for the city/county must not be important to the commissioners. If I were another applicant, I would bring a lawyer right away. Should be fun going. Can Smoll and Goodnight even vote on the issue -- but wait, that involves ethics, never mind. And what are we annexing ? Joe Bogner's land [Yes] ? [Update: at Thursday meeting, no word at all about funding from casino to Boot Hill Museum, at least not stated directly?]

Let's see -- Boot Hill Gaming proposal on Thursday, sudden meeting of city/county commission on Friday to approve proposal -- does that seem a little -- ah -- fast ? Thought that major city/county meetings had to be announced a couple of weeks ahead ? Must be wrong, I guess. And of course if other proposals come in will the city/county big boys review them too ? Isn't that required under some state law? Wonder if it will be approved ... any bets?

So the "rabble rousers" weren't there, eh? I guess that means that anyone who takes an interest in how and where their tax money is being spent in this community is a "rabble rouser".

Apparently we are just supposed to drink our cool-aid and trust in Rev. Jim Jon....errr... the CFAB and the city/county commissioners to make our decisions for us.
