Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    People are losing big time. Addictive and very convenient. I think the big gaming places are the Red Bar, Legion and VFW. Some seniors sit there all night playing.

    It is not a nickel and dime activity. Hundreds are lost each episode.

    The only reason it was approved by the voters in Collinsville, is the the question on the ballot was a double-negative and the voters misunderstood the question. Just saying, my opinion.

    The only reason it was approved is the City Council didn't have the guts to vote against it. John Miller showed no leadership at all.

    The correct answer was to let the people decide, which the city council did. It was just worded badly on the ballot, probably by the city attorney or city manager. Many citizens wanted it especially the veterans organizations, and probably the Chamber of Commerce members, i.e. bar owners. If religious organizations were against it, they should have mounted a campaign thru the Ministerial Alliance to get it defeated.

    If the City Council didn't review the language before it went on the ballot, then they aren't doing their job.
