Today in Warm Springs business leaders, community and Tribal members are holding a special groundbreaking ceremony for a new casino on Highway 26. The project should be a boost for the local economy. The CFO for Kahneeta High Desert Resort and Casino says the new place should bring in an estimated 200 new jobs. And the location; right on well traveled Highway 26, is likely to draw much more business to the casino. Currently people have to drive 12 miles off of the highway to get to the casino. CFO Alan Post says construction will begin right away on the new building” The facility has planned a total of 40,000 square feet with gaming floor and a three meal sit down restaurant, snack bar, and gift shop area.” He says the casino should be open in early 2012. Today's groundbreaking at the "Indian Head Casino" is at 2 p.m.
