Newport, KY., Sin City
 
This Sunday, April 14 on WCPO TV in the Cincinnati market is airing a documentary on the gambling and other sins available to the public in Newport, Kentucky during the last century. In a video teaser on the program's website [url=http://www.newportdocumentary.com]www.newportdocumentary.com[/url] there are several short video clips of what looks to me like Streckfus' WASHINGTON, the GOLDEN EAGLE, and a very sunken OMAR.

You're three for three Frank!

Thanks, Judy! The WASHINGTON and GOLDEN EAGLE were the only two I had to take a second look at. The OMAR was a gimme!
