One Born Every Minute

The Antioch Rescue Squad accountant who responded to the 911 call had good news and bad news for your LakeCountyEye. No, your LakeCountyEye does not have tick-borne Lyme Disease. Your LakeCountyEye has something much worse -- the gamblin' bug.

Instead, your LakeCountyEye has cut out the middle man, to pass on the savings to you. Lake County gamblers are invited to Email their gamblin' dollars directly to your LakeCountyEye at ...
This way, every dollar saved is an extra dollar in your pocket.

Remember, if you don't play you can't win. Send that walkin'around money of yours to ...
... with the subject line:
