  • Tribal president troubled by contracts

    Hinton, Oklahoma (AP)

    The president of a Oklahoma tribe says he is concerned about contracts signed by his predecessor for a tribal casino scheduled to open in November.

    The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes plan the casino on a five-acre tract roughly 300 yards south of Interstate 40 in western Oklahoma. The casino will be housed in a former car dealership surrounded by metal buildings.
