Santee and Gov. Johanns to discuss job opportunities
BY JODI RAVE LEE Lincoln Journal Star

Gov. Mike Johanns and Santee Tribal Chairman Arthur "Butch" Denny will meet 
Wednesday to discuss economic development on the impoverished northeast 
Nebraska reservation.

"This is a follow-up to the original meeting we had with the governor to get 
some jobs here on the reservation," Denny said Monday.

Wednesday's meeting follows a tumultuous summer and fall for the small 
Nebraska tribe. After a lengthy dispute over the Santee's casino, U.S. 
Attorney Tom Monaghan froze $1.8 million in tribal accounts on Oct. 27. About 
two weeks later, federal attorneys agreed to "unfreeze" $1.3 million after 
determining the money was legally exempt. <SNIP>  (entire article at above
