Order clears the way for Ponca Tribe to build casino in Carter Lake


Omaha World-Herald: The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska wants to move quickly to open a casino in Carter Lake, Iowa, even as opponents scramble for a way to block it. Larry Wright Jr., chairman of the Ponca Tribe, expressed elation Wednesday after a decade of lawsuits, appeals and legal reviews concluded with the National Indian Gaming Commission saying the tribe can put a casino on five acres of land it owns in Carter Lake. Whether the controversial project actually moves forward depends on whether government officials in Iowa and Nebraska end their fight to stop a casino.
