CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -

A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for a new Vegas-style casino near Charlotte.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Catawba Indians plan to break ground next week on a $300 million casino about 35 miles from the city.

The Catawbas plan to open the casino next year.

The South Carolina-based tribe has been trying for several years to build a casino in North Carolina.

The Eastern Band of Cherokees, who operate casinos in western North Carolina, are opposing the Catawba Indians’ effort to build a casino and have filed a lawsuit.
