From the Fresno Bee:
'Reggie Lewis, who represents the Lewis/Ayala tribal council that was managing the casino when the Tex McDonald group’s security forces took over the gaming office, said the tribe’s bondholders are increasingly concerned about the closure.

“Nobody cares what’s going on as long as they got their money, but they are concerned now, they realize until we get this all settled they will not be having their payments and their interest paid back,” he said.'

Read the above quote and wonder...is Reggie Lewis beginning to resent the casino investors?

The investors interests are overseen by a New York judge and a complex restructuring deal was already hammered out last 2012. That took months. Any new 'deals' to appease investors will surely cost more $$$ for the tribe, in addition to the cash and fines lost everyday of close.

Feast to famine in Coarsegold during Thanksgiving week.

Chris CochraneSo unless the tribe gets themselves together nothing is going to happen and as the factions seem to be getting further and further apart I don't see a resolution coming any time soon. It seems the tribe has killed the Goose that laid the Golden Eggs and found themselves and the bond holders a White Elephant instead.4 hours ago   ·  7

Sue LangleyMichael, we have to wait until all those racist old-timers are dead before things can have hope to change. There's never any good come from lumping any group of people together. Michael, I'm glad you deleted your post,..or someone did.1 hour ago
Amos Reedyes its greed -- the ruling should be like other agreements - the tribal members have no control over the running of the casino - revert back to membership rolls of 2005 and send them a check each month of the profits --1 hour ago   ·  1
Rod ClarkIt called "hobnobbing with the big boys" and the tribe is/was sadly lacking in that capability. What? Did they think they wouldn't have to pay their debts just because they're a "sovereign nation"? THAT'S why people will not do business with them. They can't be trusted. Investors WANT their money back with interest as quickly as possible so they can reinvest and make more...that's why they're called "investors". They've "invested" themselves in a business for a period of time and expect to be paid back with a certain timeframe. There are penalties for not paying them back in an agreed timeframe.8 minutes ago   ·  1

Anyone going to Fresno Wednesday around noon, that might be willing to give me a ride? My car is being repaired at a shop near the Fresno airport. I'd be glad to pitch in for gas. Please IM me if you have any room for a passenger on your trip down.

Does anyone know of a bus or taxi service locally that offers transport down to Fresno?

Val ByersThe Madera County Connection can get you to valley childrens hospital. If I recall correctly its only a $2.00 ride. (Here is a link to the schedule www.madera-county.com/index.php/transit)4 hours ago
Val ByersFrom valley childrens you can connect to the FAX buses at river park. It may take a little research on your part, but you should be able to get to where you need to be for under $10.00, but expect the trip to take like 3-4 hours, as there is some wait time to transfer in Madera.4 hours ago   ·  1

Well folks, Barrack Hussein has fired General Chuck Hagel from his Secretary of Defense position. Hagel, the only republican in Husseins cabinet. Reminiscent of another Hussein, Saddam, this incredibly brilliant military strategist, (Barrack Hussien Obama) has purged his cabinet of dissenters. The only difference is Saddam killed off all his generals and Barack is merely firing them. The ramifications of his actions will only become evident when we fair as poorly in our next military confrontation as Saddam did against us in the first gulf war. Remember? ... See MoreSee Less
