links or at least textual credit to the source is nice.



As to TAMPA Hard Rock 1,200 hires, is there any breakdown as to categories of employees. New housekeepers are interesting but new dealers and new cleavage-tax dealers are even more interesting.



I don't have a link but believe the Seminoles told the Governor of Florida, no more voluntary revenue sharing payments from the tribe.
