The fight for a casino in West Springfield is over. On a stunning margin of 55 to 45 per cent...voters have rejected an 800 million dollar proposal for The Big E. The vote means that the Hard Rock proposal is dead in Westside but not in the state. There is still a chance that Hard Rock could team up with another western Mass community, most notably Westfield or Chicopee or another in the state. 74 hundred voters cast ballots.
