Penn National may join Lawrence County track, casino effort

NEW CASTLE — Endeka Entertainment, planning a racetrack/casino for Lawrence County is negotiating with Penn National Gaming to operate the complex.

The Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission today granted Philadelphia-based Endeka another until May 31 — to finalize an agreement with Penn National to serve as the management company.

Endeka must also provide evidence that it has the financial backing to build a multi-million-dollar complex, approved for Mahoning Township, and submit an application to the Pennsylvania Gaming Board Commission to operate a casino on the racetrack premises.

Penn National is the company that has also proposed establishing a racing track and casino in Austintown, Ohio.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
