The Clarion-Ledger, 11/7/7

Jackson County said no to casinos for the second time Tuesday when a majority voted against a proposal by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians to build a casino and resort north of Ocean Springs.

In a nonbinding referendum included on Tuesday’s ballot for local and state elections, 60.2 percent voted against the proposed $375 million facility the Choctaws want to build on 100 acres of land on Mississippi 57 near the I-10 interchange. The location is currently home to the Choctaw-owned American Printing Co.
