(Sumner County, Kan.) — Word spread quickly across Sumner County when the the Lottery Review Board voted to put the casino in Mulvane instead of Wellington.
"My daughter called and said that the casino was accepted for Mulvane," said Cathy McKerracher. She said she's happy her home town was chosen. "We're so glad that it's over with."
That sense of relief was felt across Mulvane. About 30 minutes away in Wellington, while people were disappointed, they were happier that a decision was made.
"I definitely don't believe that it's going to bring any business to the downtown area," said Wellington resident Rachel Moore. "I'm ready for it to be done. I'm ready for it to be said and done, if they're going to build it, build it. If not, just go away."
