    BILOXI, Miss. - Ten hours after the doors to Boomtown Casino opened for the first time since Hurricane Katrina closed them, beads of sweat trickled down James Walker's smiling face after a long shift dealing cards.



    Returning to his old job felt like "hitting the Lotto" to Walker, who worked at a Lowe's home improvement store while he waited for the western-themed casino to reopen June 29.

    "It feels like I never left," said the 32-year-old father of two, whose uniform is a T-shirt that boasts, "We're Back in the Saddle Again!"
