It seems like everyday we learn about some new change to our area. This time the Isle of Capri. Pretty soon, there may not be a riverboat left in our lake here in Lake Charles. I remember how they along with the Harrah's boats would run through the lake. Man that was cool.

Isle of Capri Casinos announced Tuesday that they have entered into an option agreement with Paradise Casino, LLC, giving them the right to purchase one of the two gaming subsidiaries that Isle of Capri operates in Lake Charles.

It was reported on Monday that Paradise, based in Lafayette, was interested in obtaining one of the licenses owned by Isle of Capri so they could transfer it to a location in Bossier City.
