It's been rising for months - steel beams, iron rods and new freeway exits cutting a swath through the grassy hills of El Dorado County.
The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians is planning to make the Red Hawk Casino a gambling mega-force. With its ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for December - and with the Buena Vista Band of Me-Wuk Indians rapidly preparing to break ground on its own gaming facility near Ione - Jackson's casino may be staring at a future in which it's geographically cut off from every major population area in the region.
The Red Hawk Casino is a huge project by any measure. Boasting six restaurants, 2,000 slot machines and 75 gaming tables, it will be the fifth largest Indian casino in the country and significantly bigger than its Jackson counterpart. More than 14,000 people recently applied for 1,800 jobs at Red Hawk, including former personnel and management from the Jackson Rancheria.
