The article reports on the decision of the residents of Middleborough, Massachusetts to contract with the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian tribe to develop a $1 billion casino in the resort community. Under the contract, the casino will receive at least $11 million a year plus $250 million for road, sewer and other infrastructure improvements. Opponents to the casino development are concerned that it will affect the town's rural character, snarl traffic and increase crime without providing Middleborough with sufficient financial compensation.
