Time flies," said Frances Charles, chairwoman of the Lower Elwha Tribal Council.
Charles said the casino has provided a number of benefits to both the tribe and the surrounding community.
"I think we have more than 50 people working there now," she said.
Revenue from the casino is used to augment the tribe's programs for children and elders, Charles said.
In addition to funding after-school programs, the tribe also uses revenue from the casino to fund tutors in public schools in Port Angeles and Joyce.
"It's not only providing service to our native membership, but it's also helping meet the state's obligation to pay for the education of all our children," Charles said.
But it's not just a revenue boost.
The casino has brought with it increases in police calls, primarily for mischief, drunken drivers and drug activity, Charles said.
"We have our ups and our downs from it, sure," Charles said.
"That's always going to be an issue, but we've done a lot to get into the community and let them know that even though something may be legal in the state or county, we are a federal tribe operating under federal laws."
This is particularly true of Washington's recent legalization of recreational marijuana, which is still illegal on most reservations and in Olympic National Park.
But Charles said tribal officers have worked well with county and state law enforcement to hold down violations.
"Our officers have good working relationships with surrounding agencies," she said. - Port Angeles: Archaeology contract still unsigned, tribe reports, 11 April 2004 [cached]
