1. For everyone following the casino development process in Massachusetts, which would be most of Milford by now, another drama is unfolding 16 miles to the southeast. In Plainville, an applicant who wanted to create a slots parlor (gaming machines only) at the Plainridge Racecourse was rejected by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission last month after state investigators uncovered financial problems. A host community agreement already was signed with the town to develop the site. Now, Penn National, the developer rejected for a Tewksbury slots parlor application, has asked to take over the role of developer at Plainridge Racecourse, taking the place of the state-rejected developer. On Friday, the Gaming Commission is expected to vote whether to allow the transfer of the host community agreement.
