According top the KKCO website residents spoke at a public meeting on several topics including bringing gambling to this small town here on the Western Slope.

Now I wasn't there so I'm not sure if this means casinos like Blackhawk or Mesquite in NV, or maybe just "gaming" activities. . .

According to Wikipedia, "The two words are not mutually exclusive; i.e., a “gaming” company offers (legal) “gambling” activities to the public and may be regulated by one of many gaming control boards, for example, the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Also, the word gaming is frequently used to describe activities that do not involve wagering, especially online.

But regardless how do you feel about having gambling available so close to home?
