Buffalo Township club cited for unlicensed gambling

| Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 1:09 a.m.

A private club in Buffalo Township was cited for allowing gambling without a license, according to the state Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement.

The White Star Fraternal Society, 401 Shuster Drive, allowed its license to operate small games of chance to lapse at the end of November but continued to sell the games, the LCE said.

The club also failed to maintain appropriate records for the two years proceeding April of this year, a requirement mandated by the Local Option Small Games of Chance Act, and failed to maintain records in compliance with Liquor Codes, the LCE said.

Those charges will be brought before an administrative law judge who can revoke or suspend the club's license or fine the organization up to $5,000.

A request for comment from the officers of the White Star Fraternal Society was not returned.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
