Middleboro Reaction to Mashpee

This article is more than 13 years old.

The Mashpee Wampanoag are offering new details about a possible claim for the Massachusetts military reservation. Meanwhile, they have agreements or options to buy property in Middleboro and they're continuing negotiations with three or four other towns.

The tribe has indicated it wants to build a casino after it officially gains federal recognition later this month.

But beneath the apparent flurry of activity, there are many hurdles between now and the possible opening of Massachusetts' first resort style casino. WBUR's Martha Bebinger canvasses opinion on the possibility in Middleboro.
