Drop a Dime

The Illinois March 17 Primary is a short three weeks away. And to operatives throughout Lake County, this reminder means one thing: Have you filled out your 2020 NCAA March Madness bracket yet?

If you haven't already, you can pick up a bracket card at the Waukegan Casino.

HaHa, j/k:
As the city of Waukegan waits to hear which developer will receive the Illinois Gaming Board's blessing to build a casino, city officials are looking into what infrastructure upgrades might be needed around a facility and how they'll pay for them.

Of course you need to be in Waukegan when the casino opens if you want to be close to the action.  But don't go and park your RV in the Amstutz breakdown lane just yet.  Your LakeCountyEye has learned that the Waukegan Casino will not be built in Waukegan, after all.  No, the casino has been awarded to a high bidder in Mettawa:
Mettawa Mayor Casey Urlacher resigned from his post on the Illinois Civil Service Commission on Friday, a day after federal prosecutors named him as one of 10 defendants indicted in connection with an illegal sports betting ring.

You heard it here first -- bet the farm!
