Winnebago Tribe business CEO says it wants Nebraska casino

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) - The chief executive of the Winnebago Tribe's business arm says it intends to develop a casino at a former horse track in South Sioux City.  Lance Morgan of Ho-Chunk Inc. says the casino would be located at Atokad Downs in South Sioux City, Neb. Ho-Chunk announced in May 2012 that it had bought the track property after the track was closed by the Nebraska Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association.  Morgan says Ho-Chunk's Atokad development would include a casino, an events center, several dining options and retail shops.  Ho-Chunk recently lost a bid to build a land-based casino to replace the floating Argosy casino in Sioux City.  Morgan says the Atokad project faces several legal obstacles in Nebraska, which prohibits casino gambling.
