"An exhausted Pawlowski returned Saturday afternoon from a one-day visit to Aztar's Evansville, Ind., riverboat casino resort with lots of good things to say about the company's record there.

"…Callahan has been a strong supporter of Sands Bethworks Gaming's proposal to build a massive $879 million slots casino resort, retail, hotel and entertainment complex on the ruins of Bethlehem Steel.
