    A word of caution: Whenever gambling is legalized in a place, organized crime soon follows. Be vigilant.

  • Name: aleta m. grubish State: pa County: fayette ID: 1073 RegID: 1194 I support the casino proposed for Nemacolin Woodlands.

  • Name: Peter Gabriel State: Pa County: Fayette ID: 1083 RegID: 1203 Economic and tax benefits aside, I would like to address the additional benefits to retired residents of Fayette and adjacent counties. My wife and I travel outside the area for recreation, to include gaming, theater, dining and, in the winter, warmer weather. These $ are spent outside the state, as there are limited opportunities for these activities. It is therefore predictable that many of our retirees leave the area when they are able. The proposed Lady Luck casino at Nemacolin would help retain these taxpayers and thereby retain their taxes, property and otherwise. We might even ignore the winter...well, not all winter.

  • Name: David J. Tooley State: CA County: San Diego ID: 1090 RegID: 1207 Yes

  • Name: Carole A.. Dulla State: PA County: Fayette ID: 1091 RegID: 1209 My husband Ron and I are both in support of Nemacolin Woodland being able to have a Casino in Wharton Township, Fayette County. LLC Slots and table games. I think this would help bring more jobs to Fayette County. We really are in need in this County and have so many unemployed. Thank you.

  • Name: Dane E. Griffith State: Pa County: Fayette ID: 1093 RegID: 1211 I believe that the casino is a great idea! The additional jobs and reduced property taxes will be greatly appreciated in the area. My hat is off to the Hardy Family for what they have done for our community, and for their plans to enhance the tourism in the tri-state area.

  • Name: william d.. gross State: pa County: fayette ID: 1094 RegID: 1210 Dear members of the Gaming Control Board, I support the approval of the Nemecolin Resort Casino License. My plea is simple in two parts. First, I am a poker player and currently travel to Washington county, Pittsburgh, and even to Wheeling WV and Atlantic City NJ to gamble. Approving the casino at Nemecolin would allow me to defer more of my money from these expanding and `out-of-state` communtites to the struggling local ecomomy of Fayette County, giving local support for much needed jobs, revenues, and taxes. Second, Nemecolin Woodlands satisfies the requirements of a true resort casino with a wide range of activities. Adding the popular option of casino gaming to an allready supperior resort would only increase tourism and boost the ecomomy statewide. For these reasons I urge you to approve the gaming license for Fayette County. Sincerely, Bill Gross

  • Name: Mark Rafail State: PA County: PA ID: 1098 RegID: 1215 PA Gaming Control Board P.O Box 69060 Harrisburg, PA 17106 Attention: Board Secretary RE: I SUPPORT LADY LUCK – NEMACOLIN Dear Members of the Gaming Control Board: You have an important decision to make regarding the granting of the Category 3 gaming license. I believe that a casino at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is the best choice to boost Pennsylvania tourism, create new revenues and increase economic opportunity in the state. The addition of Lady Luck Casino at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort will add an important new amenity to Nemacolin’s array of activities that will boost tourism and inject needed new dollars into the Pennsylvania economy. Further, the casino project itself will add hundreds of well paying new jobs in Fayette County, which has among the highest unemployment rates in Pennsylvania, and produce tens of millions of dollars in new tax revenue for the state. Adding a new casino at one of the other proposed locations should not satisfy the test of a “resort” casino, and will only shift revenues from existing casinos. This would decrease the total economic benefit to Pennsylvania. For these reasons, I encourage you to grant the gaming license to Nemacolin, Pennsylvania’s premier, most well-established resort destination, and the only resort that truly meets the intent of the Gaming Act when it created the Category 3 resort license. Sincerely your Mark E. Rafail

  • Name: alan p. George State: PA County: fayette ID: 1105 RegID: 1223 We need this bad ! Fayette County needs jobs!

  • Name: John P Ruggieri State: pa County: fayette ID: 1119 RegID: 1235 I support the Casino coming to Farmington. I am disabled and possibly could get a job there for people with disibility. The support of this would be great for one the hardest hit counties in PA please take my comments into consideration.

  • Name: Kathy Phillips State: Pa County: Greene ID: 1126 RegID: 1247 I would like to say that I feel that Nemacolin Woodlands would be a wonderful place for a casino. It would create more jobs for Fayette County and the resort has clientel that frequent the grounds. There are various activities on the grounds of this resort and I feel that a casino would only benefit the resort more. They are a four star resort which should speak for the curtious welcomes which are extended to the people who visit the resort. Again I hope you will seriously think about granting the license to Nemacolin Woodlands for the resort casino. After all we would like to bring money into the county and state not take it out to another resort. Thank you very much for considering the resort for a license and I hope you grant it to them.

  • Name: frederick c. capenos State: pa County: fayette ID: 1248 RegID: 1379 I am in support of the casino being located at the Nemacolin Woodlands....we need some jobs in Fayette County...

  • Name: William R. REX State: La County: Livingston ID: 1282 RegID: 1415 see comments from prior page

  • Name: Thomas M.. Kuzma State: NJ County: Union ID: 1488 RegID: 1632 See previous comments made.

  • Name: c j. herring State: pa County: fayette ID: 1548 RegID: 1709 Nemocolin Woodlands has been an asset in this county for many years, it being the largest employer status for many years. The resort continues to enhance the economic development in our deprived, poverty stricken county with one of the highest unemployment rates among our 66 counties. Needing this casino here represents enormous opportunity for the community. The unemployment numbers would decrease and the tourism, which has been the largest draw to our area, would increase tremendously. I wholeheartedly support Nemocolin Woodlands and Mr. Joe Hardy for going forward to adding a casino to the already 5star resort status. I speak for a lot of us that can see the benefits will out weigh any negative impact. I do expect that you will make the right decision to have this casino here in our community. Nemocolin Woodlands is a top quality resort that none of the other competitors can come close to matching.

  • Name: Lisa Szekeres State: PA County: Allegheny ID: 1617 RegID: 1785 I am writing today to say that I highly support the Casino in Fayette County. I have lived there for 25 years of my life & have recently moved to Allegheny County. Having this Casino at Nemacolin would be a blessing for Fayette County`s job market. Currently I have family which reside in the county & they also support the new Casino plans. It would also bring an increased business/profit to the surrounding `small` business` in the area. It would also just put this wonderful area on the map, it`s a small jem awaiting to be shown off! I believe it would bring all positives & would love to see this idea passed!

  • Name: James L. Sadler State: PA County: fayette ID: 1636 RegID: 1806 I am a physician who works in Morgantown and a life-long western pennsylvanian. I chose Farmington as my home 3 years ago to raise my family in the beautiful serenity of the mountain rural community. I did not move here to endanger my children on streets crowded with bus-loads of New yorkers and drunk drivers seeking casino entertainment. I know that jobs are important, but not at the expense of ruining the rural and historic flavor of Farmington. I can assure you that people such as myself will not seek out Farmington as a home if a casino exists here. I implore you to build it somewhere that development already exists and do not ruin this lovely community. I can further assure that if it is approved myself and my family will plan to make another area our home very soon. Dr. James L. Sadler MD

  • Name: ashwin lavani State: pa County: fayette ID: 1657 RegID: 1828 i would like to support this new development taking place.

  • Name: Colleen J. Nelson State: TN County: Sullivan ID: 1728 RegID: 1906 I am in support of the casino at Nemacolin Woodlands because I visit the county quite often and would enjoy being able to go to the casino. In my travels of visited other areas with casinos , I have seen development in those communities. Being from Fayette County there is a great need for economic development in this area to bring jobs and revenue.

  • Name: Vicki Loy State: MD County: Washington ID: 1745 RegID: 1928 We do not need more casinos

  • Name: c j. herring State: pa County: fayette ID: 1791 RegID: 1970 The 5-star resort Nemacolin Woodlands should be given the casino license for many reasons including the fact that it is the only 5-star resort out of the 4 vying for the license. There is not another casino for 50-60 miles from it`s location. The resort has more than the minimum rooms (250) needed to accomodate the customers and already has a bldg. built just for the casino. There is easy access with the new I43 highway from Pittsburgh to Morgantown, WV. The resort is the best possible choice with the outstanding facilities on the grounds besides rooms. None of the other competitors has anything close to offering the amenities that Nemacolin has. The community as a whole is in favor of this with the needs for job creation, business enterprises and revenue to help with property taxes. I do hope you will do the right thing in bringing this opportunity to our community. We will welcome the endeavor with open arms. The resort has always been a huge employer for our county and this will increase the job opportunites for residents who desperately need work. The public will enjoy coming to the beautiful mountains of western pa. with the closeness of nature surrounding their visit. Tourism is a major player in this area. There are no hallowed grounds to argue about, no other casino in close proximity, no question about room accomodations that would need hookups for camping trailers, just the best of the best 5-star quality that the public will enjoy.

  • Name: Jamie B. John State: Pa County: Fayette ID: 1822 RegID: 2005 There was no `option` box for a request to speak, but, I would like to speak in support of the casino at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. I am a native of Fayette County and the former Director of Marketing at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino in Washington, Pennsylvania. I can speak, firsthand of the direct and indirect socioeconomic benefits of having a casino operation in Fayette County.

  • Name: Marlene M. McCann State: PA County: Fayette ID: 1884 RegID: 2068 I support a casino at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort if it is a casino primarily for resort guests. Originally the requirement to be considered a resort guest was to spend about $25 per person at the resort. The resort protested. The amount was lowered to $10. This in effect makes a casino at the resort no different than a stand-alone casino in its impact on the neighboring community. Who in their right mind would build a stand-alone casino along a historic highway that, I believe, by law must remain one lane in each direction. It is already a dangerous road due to speeding and DUI. Please go back to the original intent of a resort casino. It should be an amenity for the guests, and a destination for the `locals` who must visit and spend money at the resort first. If this scenario makes it too difficult for a resort to `break even` then the solution would be to lower the cost of the casino license for the resorts, not to change the rules and convert to a stand-alone casino. Thank you.

  • Name: Keith H.. Lohr State: PA County: Fayette ID: 1908 RegID: 2097 The addition of gaming at Woodlands Fayette - Nemacolin would not produce a significant positive impact upon the local economy. The persons involved would not be contributing directly to this area rather any monies that would be produced in profit would be dispersed from the area. Furthermore, the impact upon the social climate due to increased crime / drug use and the effects of increased criminal elements would offset any positive economic benefits.

  • Name: Robert Garbart State: PA County: Fayette ID: 1916 RegID: 2105 When the gambling thing started, proceeds were to go to property tax relief. I have not seen any yet. While taking a stand against this application is unpopular because of what this will do to `help` our economy, please understand that gambling NEVER helps anyone and it helps spread more social and economic woes. The arguement that this casino will bring more jobs into the community can be equated with the hope for more disease so that medical jobs will increase and help the economy.

  • Name: Terrie Nicholson State: PA County: Fayette ID: 1935 RegID: 2119 1 - This mountain area`s natural surroundings should be maintained to be enjoyed. The additional traffic and development a casino will cause goes against this natural beauty and will ruin that beauty and, therefore, ruin the original economy of the area: tourism of those who wish to visit these mountains and all the beauty here. 2 - Gambling is an addictive recreation that causes individuals who have low incomes to spend what little money they have to try to get more money. My guess is many of those who gamble are already on government programs and shouldn`t be wasting any more of my tax dollars.

    Gambling, at whichever venue, is unjust for the following reasons, and is to be avoided especially as a means of engendering revenue for the state that would otherwise be received equitably through taxation of the base: 1. Gambling of any sort savages the poor by providing false hope of riches. 2. Gambling provides an easy opportunity for addicted individuals to feed their illness. 3. Gambling encourages and depends on greed, hardly a personal or civic virtue. 4. Crime and destitution are the historical results of gambling, especially if it is sanctioned by the government, providing legal cover and justification. 5. Gambling is a self-centered, not enjoyed for the `good` it provides to the community. Using the justification that the Lottery `benefits senior citizens`, or that casino gambling will create new jobs or help the economy, is false and disingenuous. 6. Gambling has, until recently, been understood to be a social ill and discouraged by Church and State alike. 7. There will be spiritual/social consequences for funding social `health` on the backs of the poor and needy. The broad witness of the Prophetic literature of the First Testament (`Old Testament`) condemns such social injustice.

  • Name: Richard Cleaver State: PA County: Fayette ID: 2199 RegID: 2414 Pa. Gaming Control Board P.O. Box 69060 Harrisburg, Pa. 17106 In Reference to: Woodlands Fayette LLC Nemacolin Casino License Our concern is that the profit to the resort and our community, that will be received from the casino, is not worth the cost that it will inflict upon our church neighborhood. We have spent time researching the results of casinos built and run in this country and now realize that the crime rate will increase at least 200% to 500% to this neighborhood. Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. did a conclusive study in 1995. The purpose of this study was conducted to evaluate the crime trends in communities that introduced gambling casinos. It showed the massive increase in crime throughout the country and concluded with these comments concerning the casinos in Nevada. “ Because casinos opened in Las Vegas in the early 1930’s, no valid comparisons are possible between pre-casino and post-casino crime rate in the country.” Be advised this same study indicates that with gambling, crime increased in Disney World (Orlando, Florida) and that of Atlantic City. In 1990 Orlando’s crime rate per 100,000 people went up 53% from 1977. In 1990 Atlantic City’s crime rate increased per 100,000 people by 235 % from 1977. The “ Curran Study” writes “ the two cities crime rates show clearly that the increase in crime from casinos is attributable to more than simply heightened tourism. “ Atlantic City’s crime rate increased so much because it has casinos. The study confirmed this, as a fact, throughout all the states with gaming. The study showed that whatever benefits gaming brings into an area, jobs, lower taxes, money etc., it will also bring a widespread increase in crime, and the increase will be substantial. Sansom Chapel United Methodist Church is in very close proximity to the building in which the casino will be housed. We feel it would be very disruptive to our church services and other community functions. We would greatly appreciate your not granting this casino license.

Now, the traffic is so heavy and the noise so bad it has actually brought down property values. Not even to mention the increase in personal bankruptcies, crime against individuals and local companies. There is hardly a month that goes by when we don`t read about someone stealing from their employer to support their gambling habit. No lasting good comes from the casinos.

    Dear Chairman Fajt:

    I am writing to you in support of the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort application for a Category 3 resort gaming license, which was recently submitted to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

    I believe the addition of this casino, would lead to creation of hundreds of jobs for Fayette County, which traditionally has one of the highest unemployment rates in Pennsylvania.

    It was recently announced that Nemacolin Woodlands has reached a management and marketing agreement with Isle of Capri Casinos to manage its casino. Isle of Capri is considered one of the country's most respected gaming operators, so it is abundantly clear that they can effectively and profitably operate a casino. The five-star Nemacolin resort, with the addition of a casino, would offer a unique customer experience while maximizing economic benefits for the state.

    Thank you in advance for your kind review of this request. It is my hope that Nemacolin W(X>dlands Resorts will succeed in securing a Category 3 gaming license, which will bring badly needed economic development to Fayette County. Please contact my office if you would like to discuss this further.

    Sincerely,

    Tim Mahoney State Representative 51^^ Legislative District

    Gregory Fajt, Chairman C/O Kevin O'Toole, Executive Director Pennsylvania Gaming Gontrol Board 5̂*̂ Floor, Strav /̂berry Square Harrisburg, PA 17101

    Dear Mr. Fajt:

    RECEIVED ocr 2 7 2010

    PGCB I'm writing to enthusiastically endorse the issuance of the last resort gaming license to Lady Luck Nemacolin. Let me explain why.

    Nemacolin Woodlands is an established year round resort with the infrastructure already in place to allow gaming to quickly flourish. About 70% of their guests are from outside the Western Pennsyivania region. Additionally, they have an established out of state clientele; about 60% of their visitors are non-residents. The resort can produce these numbers because of their existing amenities; world class golf, extensive conference facilities and a host of interesting activities like off road driving and sporting clays. Because so many clients hail from out of state, it is believed that gaming at Lady Luck Nemacolin won't significantly impact or compete with gaming at other venues in Southwest Pennsylvania.

    But foremost in my mind regarding the positive attributes of Nemacolin are the people. The citizens of our area want gamina at Nemacolin -- they'll embrace it! This is in stark contrast to some of the testimony received by the PGCB from residents in other competing locations, especially Gettysburg and Mechanicsburg. With one of the highest rates of unemployment in the state, the citizens of our region won't take these new jobs for granted; they'll become stakeholders in the venture, not mere employees, and that is why I'm convinced this entire undertaking will be successful.

  • Chairman Greg Fajt Page Two October 26, 2010

    Nemacolin is as near to "Shovel Ready" as any location in this competition; they have a building that was specifically constructed to operate as a casino and they estimate that they can be fully operational within 9 months of licensure. Based on their stellar track record, I'm inclined to believe them.

    As a person who frequents Nemacolin, 1 can vouch for their professionalism and experience. 1 have no doubt that, if chosen, the management team and employees of the resort will quickly build the gaming end of their business into the most successful casino in the state.

    Thank you for taking my thoughts into consideration. Please don't hesitate to contact my office should you have any questions about my support for the Nemacolin application.

    RE: Lady Luck Nemacolin

    Dear Mr. O'Toole:

    Nemacolin Woodlands has submitted an application to ttie.Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for the remaining resort gaming license. The project, Lady Luck Nemacolin Woodlands, is planned to be a $50 million investment at the resort. In addition to providing an important new amenity to Pennsylvania's greatest resort, the new casino will house 600 state-of-the-art slot machines, up to 50 exciting table games, a new casual dining restaurant, entertainment options, and other amenities.

    Nemacolin Woodlands has partnered with the well respected Isle of Capri Casinos to manage and operate the proposed facility. Isle of Capri is one of the most respected gaming operators in the United States. They have the right experience to help fulfill our vision for a true resort gaming expehence at Nemacolin Woodlands to enhance the wide variety of amenities already available at the resort.

    Nemacolin Woodlands is the best location to fulfill the intent of the Legislature. Nemacolin is an "established year round resort," as the law requires, in addition, it offers by far the greatest variety of existing amenities, recreational activities, dining, and lodging options. The resort has been recognized for many years with dozens of national, regional and local travel awards, more than any other resort in Pennsyivania.

    Nemacolin Woodlands is already the state's premier resort venue hosting 350,000 guests annually and offering a vast array of amenities. These amenities include the Woodlands Spa, the legendary Mystic Rock Golf Course, sporting clays, off road driving course, skiing, numerous dining options and many other activities. 1 believe that, with Isle of Capri, Nemacolin Woodlands can soon offer the most unique gaming experience

    in the Commonwealth and one that maximizes the tax and employment benefits for the state.

    Nemacolin Woodlands will bring the greatest amount of new revenue into Pennsylvania. Currently, 70% of the guests are from outside Western Pennsylvania and 60% of the guests are from outside Pennsylvania. The renowned conference and meeting facilities, as well as some of the best golf on the East Coast, will continue to draw visitors from across the country. The casino will add to the resorts ability to bring business into the Commonwealth from far and wide.

    Nemacolin Woodlands will create a significant direct economic impact for an area in need. Currently employing up to 1,200 associates at the Resort, Lady Luck Nemacolin Woodlands will create 600 new jobs, in addition to at least 120 construction jobs. This is a significant benefit for a county with Pennsylvania's second highest unemployment rate.

    The Lady Luck Casino offers the Commonwealth the greatest amount of certainty in getting the casino operation quickly and producing tax revenue. It already has a beautiful building designed and built specifically for a casino. It only needs to be slightly expanded and renovated with new finishes. Tfie project is fully funded and they estimate it can be expanded and renovated with new finishes. The casino can be operational within 9 months of licensure. Perhaps most importantly, this facility can be creating jobs and generating tax revenue more quickly than any other applicant.

    Nemacolin Woodlands is truly supported by its local community. The resort is in a location that already has infrastructure to support this type of activity and its location is perfect to bring in incremental new tax revenue to the Commonwealth. The tourism industry of the Laurel Highlands region is fully supportive of this application.

    I sincerely hope Nemacolin Woodlands will be granted the last casino license.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Chairman Fajt,

    It is my understanding that the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is currently considering applications for the final resort gaming license in the Commonwealth and that Nemacolin Woodlands is an applicant. Please accept this letter as my support for their efforts to obtain the resort license.

    Nemacolin Woodlands is located a short distance from my senatorial district. It Is a magnificent resort that offers considerable amenities to its guests and visitors. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the Isle of Capri Casinos would be partnering with Nemacolin in this venture should they be successful in obtaining the license. Isle of Capri Casinos is one of the most respected gaming operators in the United States, and has the resources and vision to turn this into a true resort gaming facility.

    In addition, Nemacolin Woodlands has the infrastructure to rapidly get the casino up and running, resulting in immediate revenue to the State and surrounding communities. I believe this is their best asset, as it will immediately become an added attraction to the residents of Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia.

    I respectfully ask that you consider awarding the remaining resort gaming license to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. If you have any follow up questions regarding my support of this application, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

    Dear Mr. Fajl:

    I am writing lo respectfully submit these comments in support ofthe Woodlands Fayette, LLC application ior a Category 3 gaming license.

    1. Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is known worldwide and lias built a reputation of being one of the Commonweallh''s and North America's premier resort desliuations hosting 350,000 guests annually and offering a vast airay of amenities.

    2. Sel on 2,000 acres, Nemacolin Woodlands offers an array ofseasonal and year-round aiucnities ranging from the world class Woodlands Spa, the Mystic Rock Gold Course, tennis, the Shooting Academy, and the Equestrian Center, to fly fishing, climbing wall, off road courses, skiing, polo, fme dining, and many other activities. Nemacolin offers visitors something for all ages in every season. It evesi hosted several different PGA and PGA related golf events.

    3. Beyond the obvious benefits for the resort itself, the additional casino amenity would provide a much-needed boost to the local economies by driving tourism and creating hundreds of badly needed jobs.

    4. Granting the application for Lady Luck Nemacolin will enhance the resort's appeal and attract more out-of-state visitors. Currently. 60% of their guests are from outside of PA. Nemacolin is already recognized for its professionalism and top-rated amenities and there is no reason to think gaming would not have the same exceptional level of service.

    5. Nemacolin Woodlands is partnering with Isle of Capri, one ofthe most respected gaming operators in the United States. The company owns and operates 14 casino properties in six states. Isle of Capri has the right experience to help Nemacolin Woodlands fulfill their vision for a tme resort gaming experience at Nemacolin to add lo the wide variety of amenities already available at the resort.

    Please accept my comments in support for the Woodlands Fayette, LLC Category 3 gaming application.

    Sincerely,
