New Poll Introduced for YOU…..

WSGW OnLine Poll: Free Speech and Graduation Speeches

Charlie found the breakdown of profit percentages interesting.   There’s a lot set aside for enforcement and a little set aside for everything else!

 

LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Michigan would legalize online gambling under a bill passed by the state House.
Lawmakers voted 68-40 Tuesday night for two main bills to create a Lawful Internet Gaming Act that would regulate online versions of licensed casino games.  Thirty-five percent of profits from the platforms would go into a new Internet Gaming Fund to enforce regulations. Five percent would go to the Michigan transportation fund, another 5 percent would be put into the school state aid fund and the rest would go to the city of Detroit – which has the state’s only non-tribal casinos.  If the bills pass the Senate and then the governor’s desk, Michigan would join
a wave of states currently exploring the online gambling industry as a source of revenue. Critics say the proposal would enable gambling addicts, especially young adults.  The Senate is not expected to consider the legislation until after it returns from a summer break.

Now THIS is a paper airplane…..

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) _ Some Massachusetts residents are hoping to set a world record for the largest paper airplane.   The Revolving Museum of Fitchburg revealed a 64-foot-long plane at the Fitchburg Municipal Airport yesterday.    There was no plan to fly the contraption.   It weighs nearly a ton — what with all the glue and shellac on it.   Fitchburg artist Jerry Beck tells the Sentinel & Enterprise he wanted to break the world record for the largest paper airplane to take flight but the hangar it was built in was too small to accommodate a
wide enough wing span to support it.   A construction crane held the plane aloft.   Two people measured the plane at 64 feet and 6 inches long, which Beck says makes it is the largest of its kind. He’s asking Guinness World Records to add a new category.
