LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Douglas County officials and leaders with the Delaware Tribe of Indians will meet twice this week to consider what to do with 90 acres the tribe owns in northern Lawrence. The two sides aren't saying exactly what they'll discuss. However, Nancy Thellman, chairwoman of the Douglas County Commission, says they will not discuss putting an Indian casino on the land, which is near the North Lawrence interchange. The Lawrence Journal-World reports Thellman previously has said she favors putting an agricultural project on the property, which used to house the Pine Sod Farm. She said that could include a demonstration farm, living history farm or a vegetable farm. Tribal officials have said they prefer a project that includes housing, medical and educational services for American Indians.
