Mississippi Choctaws approve Jones Co. casino project

Jackson, Mississippi (AP) June 2010

The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians’ Tribal Council voted June 8 to move forward with a casino project in Jones County.

The site is near Sandersville on the tribal-owned Bogue Homa community, one of 10 communities comprising the Choctaw reservation. The development would be the tribe’s second gambling area in the state.

Tribal spokesman Warren Strain said the decision is rooted in the Choctaws’ philosophy of self-determination and is in the best interest of the tribe.

The plan includes about 500 to 700 slot machines and a snack shop in a 27,000-square-foot building. The casino would employ about 250 people. Strain said it would be about an $18 million investment for the Choctaws.
