sign on U.S.-1 & S.E. 3rd Street entrance by South Beach Hoosier
Calling Sherlock Holmes!
As if things weren't bad enough over at
Magna's Gulfstream Park Racing
& Casino as I noted on November 1st,
Wikipedia's entry for Hallandale Beach
now doesn't mention Gulfstream Park
It also ignores the influence of the Mob
and the rampant public corruption here
during the '40 and 50's, or the illegal
casinos (The Colonial Inn, The Plantation),
or the town's early history of tomato
Instead, as of 8 p.m. on November 14th,
the first sentence of the second paragraph
now reads: The city is best known as
the home of Mardi Gras Gaming
greyhound racing track, which hosts
the World Classic.
The hidden-hand of Steve Geller's
longtime pal and campaign/PAC
contributor at The Mardi Gras,
Dan Adkins, or his minions?
The same Dan Adkins whose
Mardi Gras gambling operation
continually refused to cooperate
with the City of Hallandale Beach's
Master Plan consultants, EDAW?
(Which only made the whole effort
to plan the city's controlled growth
more preposterous if they couldn't
get any relevant information or
input from them!)
I honestly don't know.
Perhaps someone should contact them
and ask them that question.
Or, at very least, check out the "recent
edits" section of the entry.
But I do know that Gulfstream Park
used to be mentioned in the entry,
and now, as if someone performed
surgery, it's not.
Therein lies a mystery.
