Casino Fight Continues

(AP)–Two Native American tribes are going head-to-head in a fight over casino expansion in northern Wisconsin. The Ho-Chunk Nation runs six casinos around the state and is expanding its Wittenberg location, adding more slots, a restaurant and a hotel. The plan has angered the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans, who run their own casino less than 20 miles away. The Stockbridge-Munsee fear the Ho-Chunk expansion will pull business from their casino, forcing them to cut services to their members. The tribe filed a federal lawsuit to stop the expansion last week. The David versus Goliath fight provides a glimpse of how tribes across the country have clashed with one another, including here in Kenosha, in the search for crucial gambling revenue for their members.
