I read the two letters in the April 15 paper about the proposed casino that the Spokane Tribe wants to build. First, let’s get things straight about Fairchild Air Force Base. The base cleared the proposed building of the casino in this location, saying that it would not put the base in harm’s way at all. It would not affect their flight pattern.
I believe that the problem with the Spokane County commissioners is that Northern Quest contributes to their campaign funds, so they help the hand that feeds them. The Spokane Tribe has more right to have a casino in Spokane than the Kalispel Tribe does.
If people are going to go to a casino, it’s better that Spokane benefits from it than Worley or some other casino around. Let’s be fair people and allow this business to have the same right that the other businesses have.
