Taking a Gamble
MIAMI-DADE -- Miami-Dade voters will go to the polls March 8 to decide whether to allow Las Vegas-style slot machines at horse and dog tracks and at jai-alai frontons. If approved, the county is expected to receive an estimated $3.5 million in slot-machine proceeds in the first year, jumping to about $10 million in later years. Additional proceeds will also be earmarked for schools around the state. The measure is being opposed by Indian casinos, gambling boat operators and anti-gambling groups.

Ballot Box

This Memorial Day weekend, besides honoring men and women who lost their lives in military service, what are your plans?

  • I plan on having some fun (barbecuing, shopping, beaching) with friends or family!
  • No concrete plans -- going to keep it low-key.
  • I'm not taking Monday off... too much work to be done!
