Former toothpaste factory could become casino

December 26, 2007

The former Colgate-Palmolive Co. plant in Clarksville could house a new casino if efforts to transfer one of the state's 11 gaming licenses are successful, reports the hometown News and Tribune. Sen. Bob Meeks, of LaGrange, has authored a bill that could move an unnamed casino from Gary to the one-time state prison in southern Indiana. The plant that has produced toothpaste, shaving cream and other products for the past 86 years closed Dec. 21, a move that had been in the works for two years. Colgate officials have not said what they plan to do with the facility.
