Madera Casino Looks Doubtful

( CASINO PROJECT )
 PLANS TO BUILD AN INDIAN CASINO A COUPLE OF MILES NORTH OF MADERA SUFFERED WHAT COULD BE A FATAL BLOW YESTERDAY WHEN A BANKRUPTCY JUDGE ORDERED THE LAND TO BE SOLD.
 THE 55-ACRE PARCEL BELONGS TO LAS VEGAS-BASED STATION CASINOS - - THE GROUP THAT WAS HELPING THE NORTH FORK RANCHERIA OF MONO INDIANS DEVELOP A CASINO.  BUT, AS CHRIS COLLINS REPORTS IN THIS MORNING'S FRESNO BEE,  STATION CASINOS IS IN BANKRUPTCY COURT AND IT'S UNCLEAR IF A NEW OWNER WOULD BE INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING THE PROPERTY AS A MADERA COUNTY CASINO AND SHOPPING CENTER. 
 THE TRIBE HAS BEEN TRYING FOR YEARS TO BUILD A CASINO NEAR HIGHWAY-99, NORTH OF MADERA.
