Top State Casino Official Lives Memorable First Months - Thursday 12th of May 2005

Going from being a small town judge to firing Donald Trump gave Ernest Yelton some memorable first months as the state's top casino regulator. Yelton recounted the events that led up to the decision by Trump's company in March to drop its contract to build a casino in southern Indiana's French Lick during a speech Monday at the Clay County Republican Party's Lincoln Day dinner.

Yelton was the Clay County Circuit Court judge for more than 25 years before Gov. Mitch Daniels appointed him in January as executive director of the Indiana Gaming Commission.
