  • Wyandotte casino quietly marks first anniversary

    By Bill Draper
    Kansas City, Kansas (AP)

    After an 11-year battle to get a gambling hall in downtown Kansas City, Kan., the Oklahoma-based Wyandotte Nation is marking the first anniversary of its 7th Street Casino with little fanfare but a lot of confidence that it has proven itself worthy of running such a venture.

    A year ago Wyandotte Nation Chief Leaford Bearskin conducted a pipe ceremony and Mayor Joe Reardon cut a ribbon to officially open the casino in a former Masonic lodge. With a $20 million facelift, the old building was a far cry from the series of mobile homes in which the tribe had set up a makeshift casino in 2004, and which the state promptly shut down.
