Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe watches economy

Gaming revenues are up but the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe of Washington is still feeling the effects of the economy.

The tribe 7 Cedars Casino saw a 15 percent increase in visitors from October 2007. The month was the fourth-best since its opening.

But plans for a seven-story hotel and conference center at the casino have been slightly delayed due to economic conditions. The tribe is confident it will secure financing for the $100 million to $120 million project by summer 2009.
