WAYLAND TOWNSHIP, MI - On January 30th the U.S. Interior Department officially transferred 147 acres in Wayland Township into federal trust for the Gun Lake Tribe.

The action ended 10 years of legal battles to stop the tribe from building the Gun Lake Casino.

In a press release entitled "In land we trust", Gun Lake Chairman D.K.

Sprague wrote "Today we rejoice knowing that all our hard work has paid off and all the sacrifices of our ancestors were not made in vain. Now it's official; justice has been served to those who were motivated by greed and power to delay this project for nearly 10 years."

"We said from day one that we will prevail over these frivolous legal challenges, and we did," Sprague said. "We also said that we will never do business with any person or group that opposed this project."

The tribe now plans to move ahead with construction of a $200 million casino which will feature 2,500 slot machines and 75 table games. The expected opening is mid-2010.
