Editorial: Draw a line in the sand and oppose Indian gaming

"Politicians are lining up to fight construction of the Red Clay Casino in Broken Arrow while rumors swirl that a second casino is planned for Tulsa near 11th Street and South Yale Avenue.

The Kialegee Tribal Town is moving dirt to put up temporary buildings at 129th East Avenue and 111th Street in Broken. Officials from the City of Broken Arrow, Tulsa County, the Oklahoma House and Senate and the U.S. Congress have publicly called for a halt to the casino. Even federal Indian officials and other tribes are against the project – so far to no avail.

The Kialegee Tribe (with around 400 members) apparently can do what it wants with impunity and complete disregard for public opinion."
