The fight over whether to allow a casino in Rockaway Beach boils down to a couple of big-money interests fighting one another. The Herschend family, which owns Silver Dollar City and other entertainment venues in Branson, has financed the opposition to the tune of one-and-a-quarter million dollars. State campaign finance reports also show the pro-casino campaign is financed by a casino operator from Minneapolis who’s put about four-million dollars into the campagin. That $4 Million includes the money he paid to people to circulate petitions putting the issue on the ballot.
