Casinos have value

To the editor:

We just read the article on “no to casino.” Many factors have to be considered on this, and we know Arizona has many, and tribal owned.

They give a lot of money to educational purposes and other community events and programs – one good side.

No matter what you do, you will always have some addicted people and other related issues linked to a casino! All need to be addressed!

Overall, many seniors enjoy an outing once a month and socializing here, and we have two here in the Prescott area that offer good food and reasonable. They run specials during the week also – and different events throughout the year.

Not to mention employment and good benefits the tribe pays on health care.

You have to look at the whole picture.
