The Sun Herald has an article on the Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi: “Margaritaville construction under way; ‘The Today Show’ here Tuesday”

Without fanfare, construction began on Margaritaville Casino on the beach in Biloxi, three months after Jimmy Buffett sang “Margaritaville” as he and Harrah’s Entertainment announced they were joining to build the $700 million resort.

Construction is expected to take 2-1/2 years, with the resort opening in early 2010.

Jacqueline Peterson, senior corporate manager communications for Harrah’s Entertainment, said “The Today Show” will be at Harrah’s Grand Casino Biloxi and the Margaritaville site Tuesday filming a segment for its “America the Beautiful” feature on how the casinos are helping to rebuild the Coast.
