LOUISIANA -- As reported by the Advocate: "The top executive with Pinnacle Entertainment says work will begin in a few weeks on the first phase of the $350 million Sugarcane Bay casino resort in Lake Charles.
"Dan Lee, Pinnacle's chairman and chief executive officer, said recently the project is moving forward after months of delays, according to the Lake Charles American Press.
" Baton Rouge plans also are developing, though more slowly, for the Riviere gambling project on River Road, said another company executive. Pinnacle spokeswoman Pauline Yoshihashi said inspection of plans is under way for the company's proposed Baton Rouge gambling vessel, something that will need Louisiana Gaming Control Board approval.
" Riviere, she said, is a working name and the $250 million Baton Rouge complex will probably operate under a different, yet-to-be-determined name when the first phase of the gambling project opens in 2010."
