FEBRUARY 13, 2001 Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns on Monday said he would increase law enforcement and call a summit of officials to address the sale of liquor in the town of Whiteclay. Whiteclay borders the South Dakota border and is located near the Pine Ridge Reservation. Tribal leaders say law enforcement have failed to look into the deaths of several Lakota men and they say the beer establishments in the town exploit tribal members. Johanns has been meeting with local and tribal leaders in recent weeks. Get the Story:
