Author:

Developers competing for a contract to build a state-owned casino south of Wichita have joined forces to push a single proposal for a casino in south-central Kansas, one of the companies announced Monday. Lakes Entertainment Inc., of Minnetonka, Minn., said that it would drop plans for a casino in Sumner County and become part of the group behind the rival Chisholm Creek proposal. That project originally was proposed by Foxwoods Development Co., of St. Louis.
