Maine's Indian tribes are making their third bid for a casino in less than a decade. Passamaquoddy Gov. William Nicholas says that his tribe and the Penobscot Nation want to ask voters in November to approve an Indian casino in Calais. The tribes would be competing with a group of investors called Black Bear Entertainment that is planning to have a question on the November ballot, asking voters to green light a casino for Oxford County.
