Do you think the opening will be delayed?

forensic engineers hired for extensive study of the incident which involved scaffolding as well as metal that was to be installed. Major story locally. Not even sure if this structure was to include gambling or just be a hotel. one dead, daytime, crowded area.

They will probably need to open the casino early to pay for the attorneys.

Was not going to open with a casino. Maybe they were reserving room in it for whenever Harrah's exclusive gaming contract with the City expires. But no casino in 2020, at least.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Injured employee who spoke to reporters has been detained by immigration.



I'm tired of witnessing ambulance chasers. I live in the baddest part of the country according to Thomas J Henry and Texas Monthly. When I was mowing, I saw a nurse lightly rear ended walking around. Then she got back into her car and had the ambulance put her on a stretcher. I've seen it alot. It holds up traffic.

The juries here are known to be unfair to corporations and inflate awards (50 mil) to people who arent even injured. Tort Reform has called this place a "judicial hellhole."

I respect people who immigrate legal or illegally to come to work. But there are too many criminals waiting to get caught and let go to work again sometimes as repair men. Locksmith charged us $450 to replace a deadbolt when I was out of town. Charged someone else $600 for a door handle. This is the biggest lock smith co. in town. And the man had a strong spanish accent. Ppl call our family stingy bc i didnt let my elderly parents go bankrupt. Losing 1.5 mil over 5 yrs. a couple workers got really mad confronted me bc i didnt want to pay 200 per repair to repair dr knobs etc. that i fix myself.

An employee we later learned is M13, got angry at our supervisor for no reason and quit. Walked out to the dock swung at another driver that was 2/3 his weight. The driver took him to the ground and said "do you give up." The dirtiest lawyer in town has a case against us for beating up his client who took the first swing. Witnesses agree with us and two came to give a deposition. Our lawyer tried to get my witnesses to side with the other side to see if we were lying. My witnesses stood firm. I have the texts of the star witness as his testimony because he is scared. Cop told me that M13 doesnt come as far as south Texas. They are all over the country and 10k of gang members are soldiers learning how to fight.

We fired a gang member. He was ignoring every managers texts and phone calls. I never even got mad at him. I walked onto the dock and saw him listening to my rings and put his phone away. He would come 1.5 hours late to an appt. He was insubordinate and spreading rumors and damaging and hiding dismantled plumbings and leave ppl complaining for new equipment sitting at the office for a month. So we get 6 drive by shootings that the gang member predicted. Cops don't want to make report, even with spent shells on the street. Workers witnessed him move 4000 pounds of stolen cooking oil by truck in one day. We could have handled the embezzlement issue later. I told my side of the story to the ex wife who is also related to organized crime. It has been a week and we don't see 10 cars / day drving through our parking lot anymore. Our office is secluded outside of town. It is not easy for even my bookkeeper and parents to find the entrance after all these years, she almost passed the entrance when she drove me.

The cops let criminal records drive with no license and no insurance and no ticket.

News media has called this place the dirtiest cops in America.

When I hear people come from across the country to live here. I think, "what were you thinking." It may take years but you will see how the system is broken.

Sam Kane beef was top 10 in the country in business for 50 years. Now bankrupt. Its the people who work for you that will destroy companies. A burger King manager worked for us just before all of them went bankrupt. She said everyone was in on it all the way up to the highest position except the owner who fled to florida. Eligios was successful for 50 years. the owner cooked into his elder years til they closed. One day, there was a sign for non payment of taxes on the closed restaurant. He had lots of customers.

By the way, when someone tells you that most of the casinos theft is internal, I believe it. We had 20 boxes of french fries stolen in one day. We get informants calling us that our food is ending up in other restaurants.

About 5% of our food goes missing consistently. workers at the plant blame the driver and vice versa. 5% is enough to destroy a company. Idk which helps more controlling theft or doing my own repairs. Our acct blamed most of our money went to ac and plumbing repairs until I took over.

Over five years we spent 50k to hire techs to replace all the parts to our office freezer including replacing the compressors 3 times. it never worked below 40. i got my certification in 2 weeks. found the freon low on day 1. decreased temp 10 degrees for the 1st time in 5 yrs. 6 months later found a leak that a novice should have caught. I fixed it myself bc another tech failed to seal the leak 6 months ago. He covered the leak with new insulation. It is now 10 -20 degrees farenheit for the first time in 5 - 9 years. The techs here will walk out on fixable freezers and do nothing. They will even refuse to servcie us. 4 ac co. and 4 auto shops refused to service us. 5th tried to cheat us for the 2nd time. Fot the last 2 years, I drive 200 miles to austin to get thermoking and isuzu service. I never found a situation that I couldn't handle with 2 weeks of HVAC training. We used to have vandalism by other AC techs. I've been locking control panels and gates. AC techs also steal freon. We found our copper lines cut. Nothing to gain except hatred. For so many years we over paid AC techs. A tech found nothing wrong with our system, it was a temporary partial power outage. Power came back on in less than an hour. He charged us $400 for showing up.

We have the lowest prices in town, but we are notorious for being greedy. Our property manager said that our tenant said that our whole family is "greedy." He brought my mom into the conversation. She wasn't even aware that I hired the manager. We were charging 35 cents per square foot for air conditioned office space and we paid for all the repairs and electricity. We have the lowest restaurant prices in town. We are demonized by a fraction of the cops. We had rumors that we broke labor laws of hiring underage, shaving hours. The audit uncovered nothing. thank god, our bookkeeper kept good records. It was a witch hunt. Actually, we've been cracking down on time card fraud using the new surveilance cameras. Occassionally, People would have their friend clock them in and be gone all day.

I ran into a jogging friend that I haven't seen in 20 years. He is a cop. He probably hears alot of lies among his comrades about us. That we are drug dealers for 35 years etc. We've never had a criminal record except that fake wreckless driving ticket. I was goin the limit. Our family has 20 bad cop stories, like false traffic report, fake ticket, harrassment, etc. I've donated to widow cops fund 4 times. They don't keep track of that
