 Jones County, MS (WDAM) - An anti-casino coalition in Jones County is taking their fight against a new casino in Sandersville to new heights.

The Coalition for Family and Community Values has placed a billboard off of Hwy.15 in Laurel showing their opposition of the Choctaw Indians new casino in Sandersville.

Member Cal Callen says, the sign was put up to let folks around the community know the coalition will continue to fight against the Choctaw Indians decision to build a casino.

Callen says, the coalition feels like the Choctaws need to make an agreement with the county on who will pay for future infrastructure that may be needed.
