Officials at ThistleDown, an existing thoroughbred racetrack in North Randall, southeast of Cleveland, are holding a job fair Friday and Saturday to fill positions including involving food and beverage, video lottery terminal services, security, wardrobe, marketing, personnel and finance.

The Plain Dealer reports that ThistleDown Racino is set to open in early April with more than 1,000 video lottery terminals that function like slot machines.

The job fair is at Cuyahoga Community College's Corporate College East in Warrensville Heights.

One racino — at Scioto Downs in Columbus — is already operating. ThistleDown is among six others around the state in various stages of licensing and construction.

Here's the plan: OH will gamble its way to economic prosperity.

Nah, voting Bush into office was a gamble, and we all know how that worked out, in terms of economic prosperity.

I'm as anti-gambling as you can get, but I guess if Ohio is going to allow it, at least this example adds 600 jobs.

@ coasterfan:

Not anti-gambling, but the industry does not add to economic growth it merely re-circulates capital.

Might as well have 600 jobs digging and filling holes.

So in what subject are you a "retired teacher" ?

Don't you people ever get tired of bashing Bush? It's like when you are in grade school. Blame anyone but the one who is really at fault.

We are blaming the party at fault, REPUBLICAN'TS.

You can blame whomever you want. The truth of the matter is, Bush did the best he could do with the people he had to work with. Can you say the same for this president. To me every time I listen to our present president, all I hear are threats to change my way of life if I don't do as he wants. I will take Bush over Obama any day.

Yeah, and I'd take Billy Clinton over both of those clowns. Wish in one hand and poop in the other, gg. See which one fills up first.
