Contentious Community Issue

Did you see Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle?

Here's an excerpt from the full article:

But the success of several tribes in placing urban casinos in such places as San Pablo and Milwaukee, and the crowded casinos on reservations near such upscale cities as Palm Springs and Scottsdale, Ariz., have many tribes dreaming of their own slice of Las Vegas.

"Tribes took a look around and said, 'Hey, that's cool,' " said Gary Garrison, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs. The casinos "have to be the biggest and the brightest and the best. You're seeing an acceleration, just like an arms race."
