Story By:  John Chesto Managing Editor, Print-Boston Business Journal   Mar 5, 2014, 9:53pm EST   Medford’s Courtyard Donuts, George’s Auto Body in East Boston, Renzo Brick Oven Pizzeria in Revere and the Salem Witch Museum don’t have much in the common. But they do share this: They’re all hoping to get a piece of the action if a Mohegan Sun casino opens on the Revere side of the Suffolk Downs racetrack. Enrollment has surged in a points program aimed at encouraging Mohegan customers to shop off-site at participating vendors. In December, there were more than 60 participants. As of the end of last week, there were more 150. Last week’s referendum in Revere has opened the gates to a horse race between Wynn Resorts’ resort casino project in Everett and Mohegan Sun’s proposal in Revere. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission is expected to award the Boston-area casino license to one …

Vincent Wins State Representative Primary, Monahan Takes Chelsea

March 5, 2014    By Seth Daniel  Chelsea Record     Revere’s RoseLee Vincent cruised to victory Tuesday in the Primary Election for the 16th Suffolk District, which includes the Prattville area of Chelsea. Vincent beat second-place finisher Linda Rosa, also of Revere, by 540 votes in a Special Election that featured extremely low voter turnouts. Vincent will face Chelsea Republican Todd Taylor in the April 1 General Election. Though Chelsea’s Josh Monahan decidedly took the Chelsea areas in Prattville, he didn’t fare nearly as well in Revere where he faced an uphill battle against two veteran, entrenched Revere politicians. The districtwide results, which included the western half of Revere and parts of Revere Beach, Prattville in Chelsea and two precincts in Saugus, were as follows: •RoseLee Vincent – 1,154 •Linda Rosa – 614 •Josh Monahan – 504 Monahan finished with 277 votes in Chelsea, while Vincent had 75 and Rosa …

Revere votes Yes for Mohegan Sun Casino at Suffolk Downs

For the second time in four months, Revere voters have said yes to a casino at Suffolk Downs, approving a $1.3 billion Mohegan Sun proposal at a referendum today, according to city officials.  By Mark Arsenault / Boston Globe staff     Boston.com  REVERE — Mohegan Sun’s proposal to build a $1.3 billion gambling resort at Suffolk Downs won the strong endorsement of Revere voters Tuesday, reviving the racetrack’s casino aspirations and ensuring there will be a competition for the state’s most lucrative gambling license. About 63 percent of city voters supported the plan to develop a casino on about 42 acres in Revere belonging to the track, a greater percentage than supported an earlier Suffolk Downs casino plan in November, according to city figures. “We’re gamblers,” said Carol Trapani, 68, who visits Twin River casino in Rhode Island, with her husband, Gino, a few times a year. A resort casino “is …

The Boston Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad….

Story linked from Boston.com By Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite  /  Globe Staff /  February 7, 2014     image: ARTHUR GRIFFIN/ GLOBE STAFF The Narrow Gauge Railroad On Jan. 27, 1940, the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad ended its service after 65 years of moving passengers along the coastline. It was a narrow gauge railroad, meaning the track was smaller than standard. A ferry transported people from Rowes Wharf to the East Boston station, where smaller trains moved many to the seaside resorts in Revere. As the popularity of automobiles increased, ridership declined, and the railroad filed for bankruptcy.   Story archived at BostonGlobe.com   For more on the rich history of Revere Beach , The Boston Revere Beach Lynn Railroad and much more be sure to visit the History Tab  www.reverebeach.com

Mohegan Sun pitches Suffolk Downs casino to Mass. gaming regulators

By Brian Hallenbeck    Publication: theday.com Mohegan Sun executives told gaming regulators Wednesday that they could build a Greater Boston casino faster than their competition could erect one, immediately tap a database of millions of New England gamers and save the Suffolk Downs racetrack and the 1,400 jobs it sustains. In a 90-minute presentation timed to the second, the Mohegan Sun Massachusetts team touted its $1.4 billion proposal for the city of Revere, where the plan is subject to a Feb. 25 referendum vote. Mohegan Sun speakers referred only in passing to “the other applicant” for the one Greater Boston license the Massachusetts Gaming Commission is expected to award this spring. Later, gaming magnate Steve Wynn, the other applicant, scoffed at what he repeatedly referred to as “Suffolk Downs,” telling the commission his properties in Las Vegas and Macau, China, are recognized as the gaming industry’s best and vowing to duplicate their …

Mohegan Sun Officials Tell Council of Unique Elements in Resort Plan

Story by Seth Daniels- Revere Journal Mohegan Sun officials appeared at the City Council on Monday night and painted a dazzling picture of rooftop gardens, solar power, electrical generation plants and food scraps from the resort that would be turned into natural gas via a company in Waltham. The visit to the Council was just one of many visits around the community that Mohegan and Suffolk Downs officials are making in a whirlwind tour of the city prior to the Feb. 25 referendum vote. “This project is one that will connect with Revere and complement Revere,” said Mohegan project coordinator and tribal member Peter Schultz. It will not dominate Revere. It will be a compliment.” Some of the more interesting points in the presentation included plans for a solar photovoltaic installation totaling 1 megawatt and an onsite gas-fired cogeneration electrical plant – both of which will help provide the resort …
