Time running out for La Center on casino offer


Here we go again. Once again, the La Center City Council will debate whether it’s time to cut a deal with the Cowlitz Indian Tribe. Once again, three of five council members are adamant they won’t do anything that could assist the tribe in building a $510 million casino complex west of La Center. “I am not in favor of negotiating,” Councilwoman Linda Tracy said. “I never have been. And I never will be.”
