The general manager of the Skokomish Tribe's Lucky Dog Casino north of Shelton says it will close for the winter due to the recession. Nick Phillips said Wednesday was the casino's last day. It planned to lay off 120 employees, including 80 full-time workers. He says about 10% of the staff was American Indian; many workers commuted from cities such as Olympia and Belfair.
