What in the world is going on? I can go to Kickapoo in West Texas to spend my money and gamble... I can take a plane to Las Vegas and blow a few bucks gambling. But I can’t use my cash locally to have fun and do the same. Does this make sense? Why can’t I benefit Woodsboro and Refugio’s revenue at the same time, which is more convenient for me? The money is going to get spent anyway. I can buy scratch off locally... I can gamble by buying a Texas Lotto (that benefits our education system) but can’t benefit Woodsboro and Refugio’s revenue. Does that make any sense?
I read the front page article, which says the April 5 meeting is only(!) for court invited officials and law enforcement personnel, which is probably a good thing... That way they won’t hear irate general public that enjoys the game rooms. “We the People” are tired of local government deciding what they think is for our “best interest.”
Editor’s note: The Refugio County Commissioners Court invited elected officials and law enforcement. The public always is invited.
