GAMBLING, does anybody decode Don Stephens? [Rosemont]
Belleville News Democrat (AP):
Rosemont Mayor Donald Stephens, a longtime advocate of a new casino in his village, now says he doesn't think it's such a hot idea - hastening to add, however, that it is too late to put the brakes on the project.
Stephens told the Chicago Tribune editorial board Wednesday there is no way to back out of building a Rosemont casino because $50 million in village funds have already been spent to build a casino parking garage.
