The Richland County Council is expected to vote soon on whether the Catawba Indian tribe can operate a bingo facility on Decker Boulevard. If approved, the tribe would take it over from Carolina Bingo which has run the hall for several months. Residents say the last thing they need in their neighborhood is gambling. "There's nothing against the Catawba Indian Nation, but high stakes bingo in this neighborhood does nothing," says Risa Strauss.
