Crime at new Casino?

Two headlines today: Sheriff not expecting crime at new casino

Statistics don’t support fear of crime at new casino

But those are the headlines only. the articles themselves write about:

Roads being a significant impact on public safety

Whatcom county has 1 deputy to patrol from casino area to Artist point. Tribal police will have one officer with no jurisdiction over non-tribal members who make up their customer base. Casino is open 24 hours with alcohol served for 20 of those.

The tribe is still negotiating an agreement with the district to pay for fire protection.

One of Elfo’s main concerns is intoxicated drivers

“We do have concerns about the propensity for (crime)” Elfo said

So why weren’t the articles titled “Sheriff and Firefighters have concern about the new casino?” I think it doesn’t fit the herald’s position of support for the casino.
