Location Selected for Oxford Casino 

The group planning to build a casino in the western Maine town of Oxford has chosen a 100-acre site known as Pigeon Hill as the location for the $165 million project. Black Bear Entertainment says the first phase of the five-year project involves a 6,500-square-foot building with slot machines, gaming tables and a restaurant on the Route 26 site. Rob Lally, one of the partners, tells the Sun Journal newspaper that followup plans call for a 100-room, four-story hotel, followed by another 100 rooms and a spa. Maine voters last week gave their approval to Maine’s first with both table games and slot machines. Opponents are seeking a re-count that’ll delay construction. (AP)
