Cheers and jeers

CHEERS - To a possible casino. This week, we found out there is indeed a developer that wants to build a casino on land near the state Thruway in Montgomery County. The Toronto, Canada-based Clairvest Group filed a $1 million application fee with a state agency in an effort to get a license for the site. Clairvest was among nearly two dozen developers that met Wednesday's deadline to submit application fees to build casinos in upstate New York. The state will award licenses for up to four casinos authorized in the Catskills, the Albany-Saratoga region and the Southern Tier. Montgomery County's site is near Exit 27 on land in the city of Amsterdam and the town of Florida. It looks like a good site. The state will choose the winners in the fall.
