Lions to get new gambling permit

The St. Paul Park City Council passed a resolution May 17 approving a permit for the St. Paul Park-Newport Lions Club to conduct lawful gambling at Vinny's on the River -- the restaurant at Hidden Harbor marina, at 388 Ninth Ave., in St. Paul Park.

"We're waiting to receive the license from the state," said Robert Boeck, the club's charitable gambling manager, who hoped to start on June 1.

Boeck said the club would begin with pull-tabs but "there is an opening to do other things such as raffles and paddle wheels."
