Oklahoma-Based Tribe Buys Land Near Lawrence

Associated Press - July 24, 2013 12:56 pm

An Oklahoma-based Indian tribe has purchased 87 acres near Lawrence but has not yet announced any plans for the land.

The Delaware Tribe of Indians said in a news release that it might use the land along the Kansas Turnpike for housing, child car and a medical clinic.

A representative of the tribe said in March that the tribe was considering moving its headquarters from Bartlesville, Okla., because of restrictions it faces in Oklahoma.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/13czgvh ) a tribe spokesman declined to comment on whether the Delaware is considering building a casino on the land or moving its headquarters.

In 2000, the tribe considered building a casino complex in the same area but those plans stalled after strong opposition from neighbors.

Who cares what the indians are doing especially in Lawerence. Where is coverage of tshe up coming car show that others also have been asking which you been deleting. That show brings in lots of money to Salina. Another story which you are ignoring is the Cozy Inn raising their prices to $1.09 for each one. A big rip off for those small hamburgers where the pickles are bigger than the meat. These are stories people of Salina want not what Oklahoma indians are doing.

OMG you mean to tell me those little so called burgers are that much? Maybe these indians should buy the place also and get the price back in line. I am done with that place that is for sure.
