Jimmy Buffett takes gamble on Gulf Coast

Casino giant Harrah's Entertainment Tuesday says it plans to open a Margaritaville Casino and Resort in Biloxi with songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It says the casino will be the largest development in Mississippi since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Work on the 704 (m) million dollar project is expected to begin this summer on a 46-acre site south of U-S Highway 90 in Biloxi.
