WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2002

A candidate for the Northern Arapaho Business Council was not allowed on the Wyoming tribe's primary ballot.

Harvey Spoonhunter was disqualified by an election board because he resigned from the council five years ago over alleged negligence. A tribal court upheld the board's ruling, citing a law that prohibits expelled candidates from running within six years.

The tribe resides on the Wind River Reservation.
