Dee Ketchum, chief of the Delaware Tribe of Indians, traveled in
October to Lawrence to meet with leaders of the Lawrence Chamber of
Commerce at the Kansas Union. In a unanimous decision Wednesday,
the chamber's board of directors said it would oppose any casino
gambling proposal for Lawrence or the surrounding area. Ketchum's
tribe, based in Bartlesville, Okla., wants to build a $60 million
complex on 80 acres north of Lawrence.
