Meeting With Governor Ends Quickly

A huge influx of alcohol from the small Nebraska town of Whiteclay into the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation remains a flash point at the Nebraska-South Dakota border after a very brief meeting at the State Capitol. Oglala Sioux Tribe President Bryan Brewer accused Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman of having no interest in resolving the liquor problem at Whiteclay. . .

Brewer says he leaves Lincoln without help to stem the flow of alcohol into his reservation . . .

As for Heineman, he says he has few options to help. . .
