Florida: Gaming commissioners vote to delay Miami's Magic City Casino sale

The Florida Gaming Commission has delayed a ruling on the pending sale of Miami's Magic City Casino to an Alabama-based Native American tribe. The Havenick family is looking to sell the property to the Poarch Band of Creek Indians for an undisclosed sum. There was a redaction of 103 pages of an application to transfer Magic city's pari-mutuel permit from the Havenicks' West Flagler Associates to a tribe controlled by the tribe, which is against the law. Advocacy groups including No Casinos urged the commission to postpone the decision until the public has an opportunity to more closely scrutinize the deal.

Casinos broke their promise to Illinois

Illinois legislature justified the approval of gambling in Illinois by arguing that riverboats would revive the downtowns. The two-boat Hollywood Casino opened in Aurora in 1993. Last month, the owner, Penn Entertainment, said it wanted to close the long-docked riverboat downtown and rebuild it on a site closer to I-88. Penn also announced a similar plan for the casino in Joliet. Illinois casinos have become like NFL franchises, skilled at lobbying and dangling the promise of revenue to cash-strapped cities. Chicago has already seen a fascinating shift within its new, long awaited casino.

The legislature had justified the approval of gambling in Illinois by arguing that riverboats would revive the downtowns.

How Frank Sinatra helped end racial segregation in Las Vegas

In Las Vegas in the 1950s and early 1960s, there was racial segregation between Black and white-owned entertainment venues. The Will Maston Trio were the first African-American band to perform on The Strip in 1953. Frank Sinatra and The Rat Pack were instrumental in bringing the issue to the attention of policymakers. In 1960, the mayor agreed to desegregate the city. It was the result of the efforts of organised crime families. They wanted to shut down non-white- owned clubs and expand their markets. This led to opening of integrated nightclubs modelled on the venues of Harlem Renaissance.
