Gov. Ricketts determined to address Whiteclay beer sales
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts says he's determined to address the problems that plague the village of Whiteclay and is working with a Native American activist to seek solutions.
Whiteclay's four beer stores sell primarily to residents of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation across the border in South Dakota, home of the Oglala Lakota Nation. The reservation does not sell alcoholic beverages.
