WLOX Editorial: Congratulations to D'Iberville on the opening of the city's first casino

The city of D'Iberville is brimming with excitement with the opening this month of the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort. The city leaders see this as a real feather in the cap for the town.

Biloxi, Gulfport and Hancock County have enjoyed the benefits of job creation and tax revenues from casinos for decades. Now after more than two decades of recruiting, D'Iberville joins those ranks and will reap those same benefits. 

With only about 11,000 people in a seven square mile town, this is big move forward for the city’s economy. Our congratulations to the leaders of D'Iberville.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
