Gaming opposition group shifts focus to Dry Creek Rancheria

A group that failed to stop a casino for the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria is setting its sights on a new opponent -- the Dry Creek Rancheria.

The Dry Creek Rancheria has submitted a land-into-trust application for 277 acres to the the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Chairman Harvey Hopkins said the site won't be used for gaming but the Stop the Casino 101 Coalition will be meeting tonight to ensure that doesn't happen.

The group was unable to stop the $800 million Graton Resort and Casino, which is due to open on November 5.
