The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians is doing what is contrary to its own history of gaming, Gov. Haley R. Barbour said on Thursday at The Neshoba County Fair. Barbour led his 11 a.m. Pavilion remarks refuting Attorney General Jim Hood's comments a day earlier implying the governor was "starting a war with the Choctaws" by opposing their proposed $18 million Jones County casino.
