MYSTIC LAKE CASINO AND PRIOR LAKE HOMEOWNER REACH AGREEMENT ON CASINO LIGHTS

 PRIOR LAKE, Minn., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Leonard Prescott, chairman of the board for Little Six, Inc. announced today that a compromise has been reached with Loren Barta, a Prior Lake homeowner who had recently filed a civil lawsuit against the Shakopee Mdewakanton Dakota Community over the exterior lighting used at the Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake. Barta had complained in his lawsuit that the casino's exterior lighting display prevented him from normal viewing of the night sky.
 Under the terms of the compromise worked out between Prescott and Barta, the exterior lights of the casino would be lit only on cloudy evenings or for special occasions. In announcing the compromise, Prescott also disclosed that Barta has dropped his lawsuit against the tribe, and would pursue no further legal action.
 Both Prescott and Barta hailed the compromise as fair and just. "We want to be good corporate neighbors," said Prescott. "Even though as a sovereign nation we have the absolute right to operate our casino as we see fit, we are sensitive to our neighbors in the Prior Lake area and we wish to maintain the goodwill we have built up with our neighbors and the general public. I was particularly struck by Mr. Barta's concerns relative to viewing the Aurora Borealis, and that sensitivity led to our compromise."
 Prescott added that the new policy concerning the exterior lighting display would be instituted immediately.
