EDITORIAL: Regardless of your feelings toward gambling, Hollywood Casino good for Toledo

TOLEDO, OH (EDITORIAL) - Hollywood Casino opened its doors this week.  The facility is first-rate.  Penn National Gaming invested more than $300 million dollars to make this an exceptional destination. 

Hollywood Casino shines brightly from the freeway.  It creates a terrific first impression of Toledo. It is new, sparkling and impressive. 

Gambling may not be your idea of a good time or even a good thing, but it is a financial reality in this state and Toledo is fortunate to be home to the commerce the casino will create.  It is also critical to future development that we can now point to a project that is an accomplished fact. 

Hollywood Casino has set the bar high.  Let's hope the other developers take notice and rise to the challenge.
