Navajo Nation moves forward with gaming plans

Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley Jr. hopes to jump start casino development on the reservation with the appointment of the tribe's first gaming executive.

Shirley appointed Robert Winter, a New Jersey lawyer, to head the tribe's gaming enterprise. Winter has worked with several tribes, including the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut.

Winter told the Associated Press he was hired to speed up development of a casino in Church Rock, New Mexico.
