Internet gambling laws at stake (WTHR, 07/09/07)
“No one’s ready to say you can bet on it, but Congress may change its mind and make gambling over the internet legal again. Online poker was dealt a losing hand last year when Congress effectively banned most types of internet gambling. Poker lovers like Michael Bolcerek complained that was unfair. “We think it’s certainly more closely aligned with a sport than gambling,” said Michael Bolcerek of the Poker Players Alliance. Did Congress make a mistake? Indianapolis Democrat Julia Carson says yes.”

Alderman not convinced gambling belongs downtown (Nashua Telegraph, 07/08/07)
“Marc Plamondon isn’t sure that bringing charity poker games to downtown Nashua is such a good idea. Plamondon, the Ward 4 alderman, has proposed an ordinance that would prohibit gaming – except for bingo and Lucky 7’s – in two downtown districts that stretch from Library Hill south to Otterson Street. A company called New Hampshire Charitable Gaming is eying the former ArcLight store on West Pearl Street as a site for the games. The company looked at St. Stanislaus Hall but withdrew its plans because of neighborhood opposition.”
