    According to Fonner Park officials, a temporary casino could be open soon.

    When the State Fair wraps up on September 5th, Elite Casinos and Fonner Park executives hope to start work on getting a temporary facility built on the Fonner Park concourse.

    They hope to have the building full of around 300 slot machines and several gambling tables before the year ends, but prospective gamblers have to get used to the temporary casino for a while.

    Fonner Park CEO Chris Kotulak said the permanent facility is still a couple of years down the road.
