Buffalo Creek rises again

The Seneca Indian Nation is back in official business at the Buffalo Creek casino -- at least for now.

On Jan. 20, the National Indian Gaming Commission approved plans for the casino, again. It was a response to the tribes application filed three months ago for an amended gaming ordinance.

But, like so many things in Buffalo, the issue of the casino is not settled. A court case continues on whether establishment of an Indian gambling venue within the City of Buffalo is legal, and opponents of the casino say they have no interest in pulling out of their fight.

So, the Battle of Buffalo Creek goes on. When and how it will end ... well, it is sort of like watching a roulette wheel with a particularly lively ball.
