FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2003

The Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut would probably open a casino within 10 miles of the reservation, said the tribe's private backer.

The tribe resides on the 224-acre Lantern Hill Reservation, which is held in trust by the state, but doesn't want it to be developed for gaming. When its federal recognition is finalized, the tribe plans to ask the Bureau of Indian Affairs to take it into trust.
