About 20,000 people are expected to descend on Ohio’s newest racino Thursday. The new gaming facility in Turtlecreek Township is expected to be a boon to the local economy.
Warren County Economic Development Director, Martin Russell, says Miami Valley Gaming’s new $175 million dollar racino means big revenue for the county.
“I think that when you talk about jobs, you talk about capital investment, you talk about bringing in more people inside of Warren County...this is going to really broaden our economic base," said Russell.
A quick moving system brought snow to the Miami Valley overnight with some places seeing as much as 3 inches of accumulation.

Earlier this week, Canal Street Tavern received a new name, as founder Mick Montgomery ended his 32-year association with the venue. This is the first of several changes patrons will see in the coming months.
The tavern will now be called Canal Public House. New owner, Shane Sullivan, says he chose the name because it gives the bar a new identity, but pays homage to the legacy of the Canal Street Tavern, which has been a destination for music fans for more than thirty years.
