Just after midday Deontae Burney was up about $10 cash.

Burney, 31, of Dothan, went to the bingo hall at Center Stage Alabama Wednesday with his mother, who was visiting from Tuskegee.

“I like it so far,” Burney said. “It’s different because I’m used to the slots up there at VictoryLand where I’m from. I think it’s good for Dothan. I hope it brings more jobs, and things to do for the area.”

Officials with the Houston Economic Development Association (HEDA) and Center Stage Alabama held a press conference Wednesday to answer questions from the media about their recent opening.

Frank Wendtpresident of HEDA, estimated between 2,000 and 3,000 people went to the bingo hall atCenter Stage Alabama over the July Fourth holiday weekend.

“I’ll be back that’s a guarantee,” Burney said. “I tried to get down here for the July Fourth activities, but I didn’t quite make it.”

The Dothan Police Department responded to the 2500 block of Scott Road just before three a.m. this morning for a call which began as a suspicious circumstance and ended with one person in custody for attempted murder.

Police say a preliminary investigation revealed between

2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. twenty-nine year old Kelly Laster took her 3 year old son and placed him in storm drain approximately 150 yards from her residence on Scott Road where she lives with her parents.

Center Stage Alabama opens with 450 jobs

Just a few hours before doors opened to the public on Friday afternoon, a step ladder stretched toward the ceiling and the sound of vacuum cleaners and power tools could be heard at Center Stage Alabama.

Jeff Rubinan official with Center Stage Alabama, declined to make many comments about the facility’s official opening, but he took a couple of representatives from the Dothan Eagle on a tour of the bingo hall prior to its opening.

Rubin asked people to refer to the machines being used as “traditional paperless bingo” instead of electronic bingo. He said the facility includes more than 500 new machines. He declined to explain how the machines work, and suggested the Eagle employees come back later and play the machines.

“It's official, we're calling it traditional paperless bingo," Rubin said.

Hundreds of flat screen computer monitors filled a room that resembled a large computer lab. Each of the computer screens, which move with the touch of a finger, display a computerized bingo card in its center. The screens also display several icons, which include “touch to change denom by 5 cents,” “Help,” “Buy In” and “Play.” The words “Max Buy-In = 25 credits” line the bottom of the computer screen.
