The passing of Senator Bob Dole marks the end of a lifetime of faithful service. As a United States Senator in four distinct decades, he made himself into a giant of that distinguished institution. For that alone, he will be remembered as a pivotal figure of America’s twentieth century. As a Vice Presidential nominee, and then as a Presidential nominee, he offered America a vision of its best self — in both cases, a road not taken that in time saw the visionary vindicated in full. Senator Dole was a man of the heartland who brought its values and priorities to Washington, DC, mastering the latter while keeping faith with the former.

Bob Dole will be remembered for one more thing, perhaps surpassing the others. As a young man, he willingly joined the millions of Americans who put themselves in harm’s way to defeat the Axis. On a battlefield in Italy, facing down the forces of the Third Reich, Bob Dole was grievously wounded. He survived, and because of men like him, his cause prevailed. In his passing we remember him, and those like him — the heroic generation who left home and comfort in small towns like Russell, Kansas, and went forth to save the world.

Senator Bob Dole, an American in full: 1923-2021.

Editorial

You should know that a Monmouth National Poll shows that 80% of the U.S. population favor voter ID laws and that 70% favor voting in person. It is important that you know that “The for the People Act 2021” known as the (HR1) legislative bill passed in the House of Representatives. All the Democrats voted in favor of it, except one. You should also know that HR1 would do away with all voter ID law requirements, among other drastic changes to our nation’s voting process.

Too often we hear a lot about how to require voters to present an ID card at their polling site is a form of voter suppression. Therefore, requiring a voter ID is somehow racist, because it is geared toward preventing people of color from voting.

Frankly this argument does not hold water. First, because it implies that people of color do not possess ID cards, and as result cannot exercise their right to vote. Therefore, a law that requires the voter to present an ID is racist. To hear this argument, you would think that people of color are living under a rock.

I have often wondered how this is possible. How are voter ID laws racist? Upon analyzing this issue, I found that their argument is in fact quite racist for the following reasons. First it implies that people of color are either too lazy, or too ignorant to acquire an ID card. That we as people of color lack the ability to get something as simple as an ID card or cannot even follow voter instructions.

Then I asked myself if everyone is required to show and ID card when boarding a plane, or when cashing a check, or when applying for a bank loan, or when driving a car, or when opening a bank account, or when entering a government building, or when registering at a college, or going into a hospital or clinic, or even to enter a restaurant to have a decent meal we are required to show an ID, that proves we have been vaccinated, otherwise…

The sports betting industry in New Jersey continues to smash records. The October 2021 month-end gambling revenue total topped $1.3 billion. That surpassed the previous month’s total, which was a national record of $1.01 billion. What makes this even more impressive is that the revenue is generated by just 9 casinos in Atlantic City and 3 horse racing tracks within the state.

Crunching The Numbers

Online sports wagering led the way in October with close to $1.2 billion of the $1.3 billion total coming from online wagers. The casinos and racetracks in New Jersey accounted for over $448 million during the month. This revenue was generated through in-person gambling, internet gambling, and sports betting. The figure is an increase of almost 33% from October 2020. Internet gambling produced revenues totaling $127 million, an increase of close to 36% from a year ago, and sports betting revenue was $84.1 million. That is an increase of close to 44% from last October. As for sports betting, over half of it came from the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, which happens to be just outside of New York City. The site won $44+ million, which was more than the close to $7 million tally from Freehold Raceway and the $4.5 million generated at Monmouth Park in Oceanport.

The total winnings for the month for in-person casino activity was $237 million. That is an increase of nearly 28% from the previous year. The Borgata topped the list of casinos for revenue collected in October with $108.5 million. That is an increase of almost 61% from October 2020. The Golden Nugget was second with $14.3 million, almost 35% more than a year ago, and Resorts…

The journey of women in Australian horse racing has not been an easy one. From the mid-70s when women were first allowed to compete in Australian horse racing to the success of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the esteemed Melbourne Cup in 2015, the rise of the female jockey has been a slow and steady progression in the world of Australian horse racing.

Throughout the year, Australia offers a generous collection of horse racing events that take place all around the country from major metro centres including Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, to regional race meets in smaller town centers. In the top end of Australia, the Darwin Cup is a race that symbolizes the finest in fashion and feats of great sportsmanship and the 2021 winner has set foot in the history books by becoming the first-ever female jockey to win the Northern Territory’s biggest horse race.

An inspirational journey

26-year-old Jessie Philpott, the female jockey that took home the prize for this year’s esteemed Darwin Cup is one member of an all-female team that have worked together to take their horse, Highly Decorated to the winner’s podium. Owned by Donna Stephenson and trained by retired rider and renowned trainer Nicole Bruggermann, there were plenty of female hands in this history-making victory.

Both Bruggermann and Philpott expressed their desire to inspire young females in the horse racing industry with their continuing successes. Philpott cites Michelle Payne as…
