To the editor: With the backing of Gov. Joan Finney, the once God-fearing state of Kansas is sinking deeper into promoting immoral gambling for the purpose of enhancing revenue. Have the Las Vegas mores come to Kansas? We applaud Sen. Wint Winter for opposing casino-style gambling.

Does the school district now have a policy against gambling on school property? "The district does not have a specific policy regarding gambling," said Craig Fiegel, assistant superintendent. "The district is subject to Kansas law. In the state of Kansas, gambling is not allowed except in certain specific areas such as horse tracks and casinos on Native American lands. Therefore, the district, by Kansas law, does not allow gambling on school district property."
