Now we learn that Dynamic Communications, whose president is Michael Rode, the commissioner’s husband, was hired earlier this year by the Downs to do work on the new casino.

Last year, he said the population was about 34,000. He said that with the five state plan, populations of the bird could increase to 67,000 by 2016.

Immediately after the closed session and the commission's announcement, the sheriff's department, county road department representatives, county's fire coordinator Robert Brader and County Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Joel Arnwine arrived to lockdown the firehouse and seize its records and drugs stored in the ambulance.
