Sponge Homer

Homer H. Hillis, Jr. sponges all kinds of information, business, political and trends. I've been seen on the Sally Jesse Rafeal show with noted trend spotter Faith Popcorn. My Blog will give you an over view of what I'm seeing and reflections on the same.

Here's some stats:

For the State of Mississippi:

Casino revenues statewide totaled $235.4 million for the month compared to $228.8 million in June 2004, an increase of 2.9 percent, according to Mississippi State Tax Commission records. Revenues on the coast are up 4.1 percent so far this year, but down 8.5 percent for the Mississippi River counties.

For the calendar year 2005 thus far, Tax Commission records show revenues totaled $1.47 billion. For the first six months of 2004, revenues totaled $1.45 billion.
