The Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma plans to debut old-fashioned, paper bingo tonight at its casino east of Deming, the latest attempt by the tribe to establish gaming at the site. Fort Sill Apache Chairman Jeff Houser said he's been in contact with New Mexico State Police about the tribe's plan and expects authorities to show up, but not threaten to blockade the facility, as happened early last year.
