NEW ST. CROIX CASINO HOTEL, UNDER ROOF, SCHEDULED FOR NEW YEAR'S OPENING

 TURTLE LAKE, Wis., Nov. 27 ~PRNewswire~ -- Officials with the St. Croix Casino announced today that construction of a new $4 million hotel is underway and on schedule for its December 31 opening. Officials said the hotel's roof is now in place and plans call for 50 of the hotel's 159 units to be ready by year's end, with the remaining units completed in March 1993.
 "The new hotel is indicative of the success of Indian country gaming in Wisconsin," Roy Palmer said. Palmer is a partner with Buffalo Brothers Management Inc., a casino-management company that operates St. Croix Casino on behalf of the Casino's owners, the St. Croix Band of Chippewas. "Existing overnight accommodations have been unable to handle the number of visitors the Casino brings into the area, and this hotel will help meet a growing demand.
 "We've only been open since late May, and already there's a lot of interest in this hotel. And we plan to add new facilities in the future."
 Palmer said that a $8 million luxury hotel and conference center with parking is also being planned, and the casino was in the final site selection process for a golf course to be built nearby. The Casino and its facilities are located in Turtle Lake, Wis.
 According to officials with the St. Croix Band of Chippewas, the new hotel, proposed conference center and proposed golf course will be owned by the Tribe. "The Buffalo Brothers have purchased the properties necessary to allow this expansion, and our arrangement calls for Tribal ownership of these properties," said Tribal Chairman Don Saros.
 Saros said the Tribe would assume ownership when Tribal financing is arranged. A modification of the St. Croix Casino management agreement is pending with the Bureau of Indian Affairs to allow the Tribe to finance capital expenditures.
 The new three-story hotel, dubbed the St. Croix Casino Hotel, is being built on the site of the old Lake Motel on Highway 8. Prior to its demolition, the Lake Motel was booked at capacity due to the influx of casino goers. But with less than 20 units, the old motel was unable to meet the demand for rooms.
 Gil-Her Construction of Madison, Wis. is the general contractor for the new hotel and the facility was designed by Bob Seger, a leading Wisconsin architect.
 The hotel will provide direct access to Highway 8, and the Casino will run shuttle buses between the hotel and the Casino. According to Casino officials, rooms will be moderately priced.
 Persons wanting information on room reservations should call St. Croix Casino at 1-800-UGO-UWIN.
