In this week's Press Pass, Jim Fink of Business First discussed the two conflicting sides battling over the future of the Trico complex in downtown Buffalo.
Meanwhile, across the border, the slots in Fort Erie face an uncertain future.
That uncertainty is not good for the city's legendary race track which Fink calls the "identity" of that community.
A relative surprise is the status of the Buffalo Bills.
Noting the Bills are usually quiet during the free agency signing period, Fink points out how recent additions have boosted the outlook for the team and its forlorn fans.
