When is the Golden Moon opening?
Today's business section features a report on the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians' Golden Moon Hotel and Casino under construction on Highway 16 west of Philadelphia.
The report offers an inside look at the new casino, located across from the eight-year-old Silver Star and the Dancing Rabbit Golf Club. Earlier this month, the Choctaws opened nearby Geyser Falls Water Theme Park.
Combined, it all forms the Pearl River Resort.
