    If it wasn't for Native Money, Lander and Riverton would be litterboxes. Business' and Government don't respect the Tribe's unless it profits thier economy, if even then. Did LEADER Corp lobby on behalf of the Tribes when the State fought so hard to keep Casino closed? When the State Lottery comes will business' in town keep Tribal Casino's interests in mind when they start selling powerball in these establishments?

    Love the ideas of the Casino, innovative, fresh and daring…….but something we also need in Fremont County….people pump money in it and they actually give a lot back, especially the things we do need…..a water park….wow an event center….double wow…I Love it…..think about the community how they'll benefit, more tourists more people visiting our lovely community….Thank the tribes for their ideas….

    Kind of funny u would say Lander and Riverton would be litter boxes without tribal money. I'm not saying it isn't true, but its funny because even with all the tribes money the the Rez is exactly where you say Lander and Riverton would be. Does the rez have walmart, mcdonalds, sears, etc., etc.,. So whats the tribes excuse? I guess it's a good thing that the tribes are finally getting to profit from Lander and Riverton. And instead of being mad about it….the smart thing to do would be to welcome the Lander and Riverton people….because this is business…..and in business their money is just as green as tribal members money…..and if you want a 165000 sq foot casino to succeed your going to need the white mans money…..time to accept it.

    Pretty sure a Casino around here is more geared towards tourist, like most things Wyoming. As far as business there would be a down season, if Fremont or any White Folks from Wyoming who really oppose gambling. It is easy to be critical from the couch, but to be a true bigot you should use your real name, that's still accepted around here too.
