Ground breaking ceremony held for E. Idaho center

FORT HALL, Idaho (AP) – The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes has broken ground for the $47 million Hotel and Events Center on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation in southeast Idaho. Officials say the 164,000-square-foot development will be an economic boon to the tribes and surrounding communities. Tribal officials held the public event on Wednesday though pre-construction work started a month ago due to favorable weather. Officials say the development will attract headliner events as well as offer a convenient place to stay for Fort Hall Casino visitors.
