Retired Army Col. Jack Graham makes a point as he speaks out against the two casinos proposed for south county during a recent anti-gaming rally at the Royale Orleans organized by Rally Against Gambling Expansion and South County First.
About 175 people attended the Jan. 17 anti-gaming rally. RAGE also will sponsor a prayer rally from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8, at the Maria Center, 320 E. Ripa Ave.
The St. Louis County Economic Council also will sponsor a forum next month on the two gaming proposals — one from Pinnacle Entertainment for the former National Lead site and one from Isle of Capri Casinos near the Jefferson Barracks Bridge — under consideration by a county selection panel. The forum will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 4, at Mehlville Senior High School, 3200 Lemay Ferry Road.
