A news conference is set for noon Tuesday for the Grow Greene County Gaming Corp. and Wild Rose Entertainment to discuss their operating agreement and community investment plans.

Grow Greene County Gaming is a nonprofit organization set up to apply for a gambling license from state regulators. Their application is due Jan. 6.

Wild Rose, a West Des Moines gambling company operates casinos in Emmetsburg and Clinton. It is proposing a casino, convention center, restaurant and hotel complex for Jefferson.
