And while the new Michael Kors Ipad 2 Case facility has been overwhelmingly welcomed, tribal leaders still see it as just a stepping stone to larger ambitions, with efforts continuing towards the long term goal of a casino at Cascade Locks on the Columbia Gorge, which has so far been stymied by a block of public officials and conservationists.
