New Casino --Did I hear wrong??

Hi everyone, I wondered what you thought of the proposal for a new casino in the Gorge area.This is in the Cascade Locks region and I have heard many many cons on this.Do people that fequent a casino need a breath taking natural wonder to house it in? Do those who travel to the Gorge want a casino?This was shocking to me,very "un-Oregonian" I wondered if there is another side of this story I havent heard and I am sorry if this is old news for you.Why not an industrial area of Portland/Troutdale ? Dont mean to open a can of worms,but is this the kind of tourism Oregonians want?

Thank you for your input.I agree with you about Cascade Locks and hope they make it "fit in" to the landscape as much as is possible. Usually, when I think of casinos,its neon lights,huge huge parking lots and a questionable sort of people who really cant afford to gamble.
