Just off Highway 395 on the east, the Fort Independence tribe says they have opened Winnedumah Winn's Casino. It's located in the former tribal building and not looking like a flashy casino at this point – just plainn brown with orange doors and a big, dirt parking area.

Simple announcements on the door say the casino is open noon to 9pm, Thursday through Sunday.

Some reports had earlier said a casino would open as part of the mini-mart and gas station complex on the west side of the highway, also a tribal project. It is known that the new complex will house a mini-mart, gas station and eventually a truck stop to the north.

We have placed calls to Fort Independence Tribal Chairman Carl Dahlberg for more information.
