TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A state board has picked a group with ties to two other casinos in Kansas to develop a new one in the southeast corner of the state.  The casino review board has selected a $70 million proposal from Kansas Crossing that was less expensive than two rival plans. The others included the $145 million Castle Rock casino that would have been within 2 miles of a Quapaw tribal casino in northeast Oklahoma.  The board split 5-2 between Kansas Crossing and Castle Rock.  The Kansas Lottery will own the new casino.  Board members supporting Kansas Crossing said its project is the right size for the market. Also, investors in the group have been involved in casinos in Dodge City and south of Wichita.  The new casino would be south of Pittsburg.
