Groundbreaking is set for 1 p.m. Thursday for the Hollywood at Mahoning Valley Race Course.

Elected officials, community leaders and members of the construction team will join Tim Wilmott, president and chief operating officer of Penn National Gaming Inc., for the formal groundbreaking of the $125 million racino at 700 N. Canfield-Niles Road.

Construction equipment is at the site, and there will be large graphics of the casino design and an opportunity for members of the press to view the casino site up-close.

Hollywood at Mahoning Valley Race Course — scheduled to open in mid-2014 — will feature a Hollywood-themed Video Lottery Terminal facility with up to 1,500 VLTs along with a variety of food and beverage options, plus a 1-mile racetrack for thoroughbred racing with a climate-controlled grandstand and state-of-the-art simulcast wagering theater.

The project is expected to create about1,000 jobs during construction and 1,000 other jobs once the facility opens, according to Penn National.

Gaming.

Wake up readers. This company is going across the state line, twelve miles away in PA, and subsidizing competition against our Austintown project. Why should Ohio taxpayers lose tax revenue to PA, especially when this company borrows from Ohio
