  32. T. Chapman on September 4, 2018 at 3:49 pm

    I love reading all these comments. Omg. It wouldn’t be this way if people actually had to leave their real names. It’s a cop-out to leave annonymous comments. Nobody has to own anything these days even their mouths. Wow



  33. Love it on September 3, 2018 at 7:48 pm

    Might need to rethink that. And I’m no sweetheart big mouth.



  34. Love it on September 3, 2018 at 7:27 pm

    By the way it’s public record that he paid CASH for that home in Doylestown. No job but paid cash. Alot of cash. Big summer party. No job. The money comes from somewhere. Common sense people! Going down soon.



  35. Amber Hague on September 2, 2018 at 7:54 pm

    If you ever want to hire a business manager or an accountant I know people.



  36. Amber Hague on September 2, 2018 at 7:45 pm

    Learning through past Doylestown acceptance it is NO WONDER why we are scheptical of welcoming outsiders. We are a closed community that DOES NOT welcome outsiders. You had several chances. Also we pay our dues.



  37. Doylestown sick on September 1, 2018 at 9:54 am

    He thinks buy putting them in others names wont come back to get him. Wow Mr. Gamble you are so stupid. When it comes to prison or spilling the beans I bet the pot of beans will be overflowing. It’s just a matter of time until they take EVERYTHING and hopefully your home because you make Doylestown sick.



  38. Grip Gotten on August 30, 2018 at 2:27 pm

    Has nothing to do with putting food on the table. Most jobs do. That place was opened with untaxed money people. Doesn’t it seem odd the man doesn’t work???????? Stupidity at its finest.



  39. Sorry for Love It on August 29, 2018 at 10:27 am

    Not sure about the jealousy part but I am sure about the kids part. He is about the worse father you could have. He always thinks of himself before his kids. He comes first at all times and what ever whore he has hanging on his arm at the time. The one he has now, if she thinks he is not cheating on her she is sadly mistaken. He will see when he gets older that his kids will remember that he never put them first or cared enough to understand that showing off his money for others but when it comes to them he never has any. Sorry for him oh no I’m not.



  40. defamation on August 23, 2018 at 12:02 pm

    Seeing that he’s not part of this story above I’d talk to a lawyer about defamation/libel.



  41. Grip Gotten on August 23, 2018 at 7:19 am

    All of a sudden you don’t own the bar Gamble? Maybe you just put it in a brother’s name so you won’t lose it. Going down.



  42. Jim Gamble on August 23, 2018 at 7:04 am

    Why would my brothers bar be closed, you really need to get a grip, two different people bro!



  43. Bandwagon on August 23, 2018 at 6:43 am

    You fans on his bandwagon are blind. The way he did his now exwife is more than enough to show how honest he does things. Yep all around good guy and role model. smh Jump off now because the wagon is about to lose a wheel.



  44. William Tarver on August 22, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    Did a Kent Police Officer get arrested?



  45. Bar owners on August 22, 2018 at 12:16 pm

    What about all the bars who have his machines? Someone needs to pull those also.



  46. Ridiculous on August 22, 2018 at 9:38 am

    I can jump on anywhere I want. U sure are a fan of the criminal. Stay tuned. He’s being sued by numerous people and other things. You will definitely rest your words.



  47. Sneaky move. on August 21, 2018 at 10:15 pm

    Watched a uhaul at his place in Norton have a nice video to send forward.



  48. Funny on August 21, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    Oh me to this is great!! He can go back to installing illegal cable again. LMAO!!!



  49. Sorry for Love It on August 21, 2018 at 11:33 am

    Well jump right in Ridiculous. When are all of you going to understand Mr Gamble as you call him was not in what happen last week. But just keep on talking if that gives you comfort. But, I guess all of you would like to hear your dad called names and accused of things you are only assuming…. you know what assuming gets you. If they get caught so be it but it is really only their business. Name calling is not needed. Grow up.



  50. Love it on August 21, 2018 at 9:27 am

    Not too many people worry about u gamble. U buy your friends. No one is jealous. U are a joke in your toy truck that a kid would drive. U like u more than most.



  51. Love it on August 21, 2018 at 6:37 am

    Has nothing to do with balls dipshit. Once again your bully personality shines like your red face. Grow up dude.



  52. Sickening on August 21, 2018 at 6:35 am

    Have another beer gsmble



  53. Danger on August 21, 2018 at 6:32 am

    U seriously think your family would be in danger? He might carry a gun in his pants but he hides behind it and who he knows. He’s no tough guy. Just pretends to be. And I agree. That nasty bar he’s opened I wouldn’t eat at free or drink at free.



  54. Ridiculous on August 21, 2018 at 6:28 am

    I don’t think Love It is jealous or spends too much time thinking about this. What I think he/she means is must people that have a little money do not flaunt it for attention. All of these men did that. Shows they were new at it. Not used to it. And let’s be honest here. They all are still hiding things in other places. And regarding the comment about Mr. Gamble’s children, he doesn’t care what he posts so why should anyone else. I doubt he is dad of the year.



  55. Jim Gamble on August 21, 2018 at 4:57 am

    Joe white, your not very smart!



  56. Long time Coming on August 21, 2018 at 3:39 am

    Well they got the good “Ole Boys”! Now lets sit back and watch which one turns out to help the prosecution!



  57. Holiday on August 20, 2018 at 5:43 pm

    Haters going to hate
    Gamble’s pub employs a lot of people and puts food on the table for their family. It’s an honest family run business that I’m happy to see in town



  58. Dollar Bill on August 20, 2018 at 12:56 pm

    So are these places closed? Is Gambles bar closed? Is State street tires closed? Is concrete business closed? Is Sisson’s closed? Is Red Pepper closed?



  59. Sandler on August 19, 2018 at 4:38 pm

    His name is Steve Polychronopolous!



  60. Sorry For Love It on August 19, 2018 at 12:38 pm

    No sorry none here. But you are rude uncaring and must not have children or loved ones of your own. So put a plug in it take care of yourself with your nose in you own business.



  61. Love it on August 19, 2018 at 11:47 am

    I’m sure it is paid for. Wonder how. Hmmm



  62. Love it on August 19, 2018 at 11:44 am

    U must be one that reaps the benefits of his illegal activities. Enjoy for now.



  63. Sorry for Love It on August 19, 2018 at 11:03 am

    Love it why do you care so much about what he does. Does he not invite you. One other thing do you realize he has children that has nothing to do with this and love their dad. Why do you want to keep humiliating them with your jealousy. Why don’t you keep your mouth shut since obviously you don’t know what your talking about and their are others involved and your hurting them.



  64. So sorry on August 18, 2018 at 8:40 pm

    I used to drive by your home daily on my way home from work… always admiring the beautiful home and vechicles in the drive!!! Good luck sir, hoping all goes well



  65. Jim Gamble on August 18, 2018 at 8:23 pm

    Thanks for thinking of me, must be miserable worrying about me all the time!
    Wish you had the balls to leave your name though!!!!

  68. Love it on August 18, 2018 at 9:24 am

    Looks like he won’t be taking 19 people to Vegas this year.



  69. Love it on August 18, 2018 at 9:14 am

    Love these comments. Jim Gamble is a fat piece of trash who barely worked before he got into the illegal gambling ring. Now he doesn’t work at all. He is a bully. I hope he goes down and loses everything. Karma is great.



  70. truth of it all on August 18, 2018 at 9:11 am

    truth of it all
    yes the places are legal, but tax evasion isn’t
    you can’t own millions in cars and equipment without paying taxes
    get your facts straight and stop the stupid arguments, I was there, you were not
    enough said



  71. Skinny on August 18, 2018 at 2:56 am

    Gimme a rock



  77. John on August 17, 2018 at 6:40 pm

    Are you saying the police worked their and watched the illegal activity? Paying out in cash is easy to spot and is against the law. I know you are not saying the police looked the other way.



  78. John on August 17, 2018 at 6:29 pm

    The secret service was involved in the raids.



  79. Hyme addick on August 17, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    Manafort will be out in 75+ on good behavior!! Everyone else shove a living snake up their az!!



  80. John on August 17, 2018 at 6:25 pm

    The hardrock doesn’t pay its employees without taking out required taxes, they did ( illegal ) the hardrock reports all of its gross revenue and pays taxes on it, they have not ( illegal). The hardrock does not give kickbacks to cities that allow them to operate they have (illegal). The hardrock is able to pay out in cash, these places were not but did ( illegal ) The hardrock did not have to launder money, they did (illegal). Do you realize banks were raided also? Hard to report $50,000 in income and put hundreds of thousands in the bank.



  81. mine now on August 17, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Akron will envelope both your sorry as hillbilly towns in no time!! Mark my words,Doylesburg,Barbertucky



  82. John on August 17, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    All non radom chip machines have revenue counters on them. Hope they were not unhooked and taxes were paid on gross revenue and employee taxes were paid.



  83. dewey cox on August 17, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    How much you lose?



  84. John on August 17, 2018 at 6:09 pm

    These people will possibly be charged with tax evasion and money laundering. Manafort is facing the same charges with a possible 300 + years in prison. Barberton and Norton were compicit in these gambling houses because they were collecting a fee per machine each month.



  85. dewey cox on August 17, 2018 at 6:08 pm

    Same goes for Ohio lottery .Oohhhh the temptations!!! At least they use that cash for public schools.Ain’t dat right?



  86. Jennifer M Johnson on August 17, 2018 at 5:25 pm

    My mom lives in one of his rental property does anyone know if she should put her rent in escrow he since he’s in jail he never got his rent



  87. Chris Petit on August 17, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    if he took his business out of Doylestown how would you pay to have the light bulb replaced in your traffic light? you should be glad anyone would take a chance on your town



  88. Knows it on August 17, 2018 at 5:04 pm

    He isn’t involved in this raid stuff so how about sticking to the ones that are



  89. Doylestown sick on August 17, 2018 at 3:31 pm

    Karma looks like it’s working perfectly



  90. Get real on August 17, 2018 at 2:47 pm

    Well aren’t you just the perfect little person. Go ahead and judge…karma has a sneaky way of catching up to you. The person you are referring to is not perfect but at least he is willing to take a chance on that so called downtown Doylestown.



  91. Doylestown sick on August 17, 2018 at 1:44 pm

    Yes I’m proud of working 65 years. Working! Not scamming people. Jealous? Believe me I’m embarrassed to have someone in our town that treats and acts of this way. Have a nice day I’m sure I’ll see you when this investigation is on the news and be watching as they take you away.



  92. Doylestown sick on August 17, 2018 at 1:34 pm

    That’s the last place I’ll visit after reading your reviews and town chatter. I’m not putting my family in danger buy telling you Jim Gamble my name go back to Barberton where you belong.



  93. Slot father on August 17, 2018 at 1:31 pm

    Doylestown sick u are just a jealous miserable bum that probably lost your wife to a real man that made her back shake. Go take ur chump change retirement check and buy a hooker that will lie to you and make u feel like half a Man!



  94. Jim Gamble on August 17, 2018 at 12:25 pm

    You have your head up your ass, if you used your real name people would know who the loser is but you coward behind your comments and once again have no idea what your talking about! Stop in the bar and let me buy you a drink!



  95. Doylestown sick on August 17, 2018 at 12:16 pm

    I’ve only had a speeding ticket in 50 years. My glass house will hold up perfectly. I pay my taxes and my business taxes.



  96. Truth&Justice on August 17, 2018 at 12:14 pm

    The folks in Barberton perhaps did not see what transpired in Clinton…and are perhaps unaware. Ed’s partner in crime was also taken down, that very same day.



  97. Shut up already on August 17, 2018 at 12:06 pm

    Shellie…. You need to STFU already. How many posts are you going to comment this on for attention??!! You’re pathetic. Go drink another!



  98. Get real on August 17, 2018 at 11:18 am

    None of the people that got raided will do any time in prison. They don’t have room as it is and they will just lose the stuff they purchased with the so called illegal gambling money. And pay some fines and be put on probation. So I ask you…is it worth all the time and effort and tax payers dollars to go through all of this. I highly doubt it!



  99. Curious on August 17, 2018 at 11:12 am

    Well said!



  100. Curious on August 17, 2018 at 11:09 am

    The old saying is …Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house. Doylestown sick needs to make sure their closet is clean before trying to throw crap at others. The guy you are talking about is doing it the right way wether you agree or not. So stick to the real thieves…Moneypenny and Brown!



  101. Truth on August 17, 2018 at 11:02 am

    The people who frequent these places do so of their own free will, if they want to piss away their money then that’s their choice , but it’s stupid to act like someone is stealing from them , they are the ones being irresponsible with their money , I’m in no way defending these gaming halls at all , in fact I feel it’s wrong all the way around as far as gambling , it’s a true waste , but if people weren’t going to them we wouldn’t have these problems , it’s truly a matter of the heart , people are sick and need a healer , but they also for sure need to stop wasting their money and use it to help someone in need or family or something like that , just saying



  102. Doylestown sick on August 17, 2018 at 10:33 am

    We don’t need his dirty money in Doylestown get him out of here. Stealing and cheating people out of thousands of dollars is finally coming back to get you. Maybe you will learn how to respect your neighbors after spending a few years to think about it. He would never be able to open a business up in our town without scamming thousands out money. He can go around and talk like he did nothing wrong while we sit back and wait for him to be taking away.



  103. Doylestown sick on August 17, 2018 at 10:23 am

    When are they coming to Doylestown? This fat guy needs to do down also!!



  104. that good man cb on August 17, 2018 at 8:56 am

    sheesh! snitching much? didn’t your mom tell you no one likes a tattle-tail? you’re acting like you saw someone getting robbed or murdered, which then you should call definitely call the police. i’d even be ok if you told because they were selling drugs.



  105. Slot father on August 17, 2018 at 7:14 am

    Be patient. Ed Brown will overcome adversity, illegal prosecution, filthy women, and dirty drinking water in Barberton to once again be back on top of the gambling industry. ED BROWN for mayor!



  106. Not God on August 17, 2018 at 6:43 am

    Wow you threw it right out there. He is the kingpin. Who is protecting him? Or is he playing the other side like when they busted the Vegas nights? He is in these places day and night. How in the world do they not know that?



  121. Money on August 16, 2018 at 11:36 am

    It amazes me that the biggest crook, the biggest illegal gambler of the area once again escapes prosecution…Moneypenny supplies the machines, works on the machines and is a so called silent partner with some of these places…how is the Narc avoiding the authorities? Hmmm



  122. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 9:38 am

    Very well said…towns made money on these places…



  123. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 9:37 am

  124. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 9:35 am

  125. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 9:32 am

  126. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 9:30 am

    The bigger guys pay others to put businesses in their name…specially gambling…

    Do things the right way and you will have no problems on your hands. Come raid my home anytime. I have nothing to hide, bury, or lock up.



  130. Slut Machine on August 16, 2018 at 7:53 am

    There were a number of places in Stark County raided a couple weeks ago.



  131. anarchy on August 16, 2018 at 7:41 am

    these stormtroopers are getting bolder every day. pretty soon they will be raiding all our homes



  132. Tim on August 16, 2018 at 7:15 am

    These establishments are LEGAL. If you do not run them proper they become ILLEGAL.



  133. Duh you're a duh-mmy on August 16, 2018 at 6:12 am

    Why don’t you delete the comment about Tree. I know the owners and you have it completely wrong. How about just delete the comment?



  134. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 12:44 am

    Very true…like even the pizza places that these places order from all time hurt…ones in Canton were hurting without the gambling places..it All trickles down



  135. Barb on August 16, 2018 at 12:42 am

    Now Marissa…sounds like Ross places..lol



  136. Are you illiterate on August 16, 2018 at 12:02 am

    Apparently you don’t own a map or know what county or juristiction the places you listed are in, try having a little more sense and learn to read before you comment…. Those are all I’m Stark county which is listed in the article as well! You mad or nah?



  137. Really? on August 15, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    You’re kidding right?? The Hard Rock does it LEGALLY!!!! This has been a long time coming. You don’t put a gambling place in an old Lawsons and expect it to be on the up and up.



  138. Mmmmm? on August 15, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    Beginners luck



  139. Great job on August 15, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    Waiting for this to happen. It was just a matter of time now looks like you will pay the crime.



  140. Clematis on August 15, 2018 at 9:31 pm

    Nothing wrong with Gameroom. The people who frequent enjoys themselves with their own time and money. Ask thecthousands ofvthem if it’s your bus what they spend it on. But it’s ok to go to hard rock ? There is your hello. You can play. But only where we say you can ? Do you want to be told you can only go to this grocery store or to this drugstore or you’re only allowed to buy your gas from the big giant companies . The government tells you you are allowed to go here and you are allowed to do it but only here because we say so . You will not spend your money where you want to you will spend it where we tell you we are allowed to . And what will be done with the $4 million they probably seized from a dozen people. Oh sorry let me count that again it was only 1 million yeah that’s it 1 million .



  141. Clematis on August 15, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    Huh.?



  142. Duh on August 15, 2018 at 9:05 pm

    Sorry I’m a complete idiot.I keep my head up my sphincter a lot!!!!Big time!!!!



  143. Duh on August 15, 2018 at 9:02 pm

    I’m a complete dipshit!!Sorry!!



  144. Yep on August 15, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    I think the most entertaining part of this is reading these comments. Inaccurate and people jump to conclusions without having facts. So many officials involved and I’m positive these has been a lengthy investigation! Obviously not legit at all and if you think they purchased all these toys being legit your a fool! Honestly who would be dumb enough to even walk into one of these gambling establishments? And whom ever said Barberton tree service was involved is an idiot and should probably check yourself before running your mouth !



  145. Dick on August 15, 2018 at 8:11 pm

    For sure it wasn’t! FEDS should have been involved and they would uncover a lot of interesting facts



  146. Marissa on August 15, 2018 at 8:09 pm

    I wonder if the sheriffs office knows about their gambling parlors in Jackson township(club 1857), Win zone on rt.62 in plain township. Copper Mine on Barber rd and a few others in Norton and Barberton. Also gambling parlors in Florida and North Carolina. If the sheriffs office did their job correctly and didn’t screw things up they would have shut these locations down. IRS, secret service and Ohio casino people should have been on site! Made millions in the past years! Interstate money laundering. RICO!!! Suave.



  147. Me on August 15, 2018 at 7:11 pm

    Why would I give my name to an uneducated low-life like you?



  148. Me on August 15, 2018 at 7:08 pm

    Exactly. Uncle Sam wants his cut. I hate all the taxes I pay but prefer being broke to prison!



  149. Ha on August 15, 2018 at 6:53 pm

    U are an idiot. Legitimate business owners? U have no sense. Must be a customer of the parlors.



  150. Ha on August 15, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    Do u people think this raid wasn’t well planned and thought out? These people are guilty as hell. No more bags of money being stashed under their bed. This bust was long overdue.



  151. Anonymous on August 15, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    Right



  152. Christine on August 15, 2018 at 6:20 pm

    👍🏻



  153. Christine on August 15, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    You people are ridiculous. These are legitimate business owners of gambling parlors and whatever other business they decide to open. It brings money to our city and gives people something to do besides sit in a bar or play pool. You should support the things people do to help our community.

  159. Facts on August 15, 2018 at 5:41 pm

    You should edit or delete this incorrect comment – it is false they do not own or have any business dealings with Barberton Tree.



  160. Funny on August 15, 2018 at 4:55 pm

  162. Me on August 15, 2018 at 4:33 pm

    So they show you their tax returns and report all of their earnings to you just because you know them? Odd bunch of people over in Barberton.

    they raided a house on Glenn. prolly met there



  170. Me on August 15, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    I tried looking up the property owner on the summit county site but it won’t load on my iPad. I worked with some shady people from that area that obviously had some side gambling going on so I won’t be surprised if I recognize the names when released.



  171. Me on August 15, 2018 at 1:31 pm

    Got to know when to walk away, as Kenny would say.



  172. $$$$$ on August 15, 2018 at 1:27 pm

    There were 6 sheriff’s in the big dirt lot of the cardinal rubber company on Wooster Rd. Wonder it it was related



  174. Me on August 15, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    Oh wow! Thanks for the update! Local news is awful at reporting anything not related to the Browns or La Bron

    Been watching in person and it like looks to be a good old fashion property seizure.



  179. Me on August 15, 2018 at 1:16 pm

    Could it be related to the gambling parlor raids going down in NE Ohio including Barberon?
