Volume 47 - No. 10

by lyle e davis

Last week we explored the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians and their owned and operated Valley View Casino. Let us now take a closer look at the World of Casinos and the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians

The Pechanga Resort and Casino is an Indian Casino on the Pechanga Indian Reservation in Temecula, California, operated by the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. It is the largest casino in the State of California. With 3,400 slot machines and about 188,000 sq. feet of gaming space. Currently, the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians distribute 90% of NET profit from the casinos to its enrolled members, payable monthly.

Enrolled members of the Pechanga Tribe receive a large amount of per capita income, currently about $25,566.66 per month. Annually, that translates to $306,799.92. That figure does NOT represent a salary. It simply is a payment made to you for being you. IF, and it’s a big “IF” you are an enrolled member of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. If you are not an enrolled member, you are out of luck. Big time.

Let’s do the math: Average monthly per capita income per tribal member $25,566.66. That translates to $306,000 per year, per each famil.y member, enrolled, over the age of 18. With an enrolled membership of approximately 1400, the distribution per enrolled member would be $35,792,400 per month.

If 90% of x = $35,792,400 then x must equal $39,769,333 net revenues per month generated by Pechanga Casino. This leaves $3,975,833 in net profit retained by the casino, per month. Again, this is not a salary for work performed . . . it is the per capita distribution to enrolled members simply for being an enrolled member of the tribe. Just for being you.

By any definition . . . Pechanga Casino generates a tremendous amount of money.

As we took a close look at Ray Alto and his family last week, regarding the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians and the impact of the Valley View Casino revenues on its enrolled members, let us look this week at a several similar cases involving two gentleman by name of Rick Cuevas and John Gomez, Jr. - both of whom claim membership of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. As reported by the Voice of America, Pechanga Indian Rick Cuevas traces his ancestry to a woman named Paulina Hunter, who was granted a lot of land on the Pechanga reservation in the late 1800s. He and his family have lived on

the reservation as full tribal members for decades. But in the early 2000s, the tribal council decided to posthumously disenroll Hunter and, by extension, about 180 of her descendants. “They have desecrated the memory of our ancestors,” Cuevas said. “The Pechanga tribal chairman has ripped our history from us, without evidence. And yet his ancestor, back in the day, called my ancestor ‘Aunt.’”

Disenrollment is an epidemic in reservations across Indian country. Cuevas tracks these cases on his Original Pechanga website: So far, 11,000 Indians have been exiled from dozens of tribes. As it turns out, this and the majority of other disenrollment cases are about money.

Cuevas’ tribe operates the Pechanga Resort and Casino, the largest in California. By some estimates, it earns from $1-2 billion annually and pays allotments to each tribal member of $300,000 or more a year.

Cuevas estimates that his family has lost more than $2.5 million per person in per capita payments alone in the 11 years since they were disenrolled, assuming the per capita rate at that time. But money isn’t the only thing he has lost. Some losses can’t be quantified. “We were tribal members long before the casino came,” he said. “Our family has resided on the reservation continuously for nearly 70 years.”

Today, disenrolled members are denied health and educational benefits. “And they can’t be buried in the reservation cemetery

with their relatives and ancestors,” Cuevas said. The Pechanga Band government did not respond to VOA’s request for comment. A Case Study at Pechanga

(As Brian Frank reported on the Original Pechanga blog (http://www.originalpechanga.com/2016/01/californias-tribalcleansingtacit.html) A revealing study concerns the disenrollment of John Gomez Jr., whose entire extended family, consisting of 135 adults and all of their offspring, was declared in 2004 no longer to be Pechanga. Gomez and his relatives are descended from Manuela Miranda, who all sides agree was part of the Temecula tribe from which the Pechanga originate.

Disappearing Indians - Part II Cont. from Page 1

When John Gomez Jr. and his family lost their membership in the Pechanga band, they also forfeited their access to the tribal health clinic, a substantial income, access to the tribal school for their children, certain federal benefits reserved for American Indians, and even their right to call themselves Pechanga in the eyes of the federal government. Gomez’s family was the first to be disenrolled in 2004, but trouble began stirring long before that, long before there was even a casino.

In 1995, the tribe opened a small but lucrative gaming center. As the money trickled in, tribal members began to receive checks made out directly in their names.

“It was really, really slow, because it was a small facility,” Gomez says. “But eventually, you were talking thousands of dollars a month and then tens of thousands of dollars a month. And there was a lot of people that had never seen that amount of money before, didn’t really know how to handle it, and it created issues for them.” Most tribal members wrestled with issues of how to spend the money or whether and how much to save, Gomez says. But for others, it was more about greed. “It also created a group of people that said, ‘You know what? We need to get more. There’s other tribes in the area that get a lot more than we do,’” Gomez says. It was money that exacerbated the dispute over who belonged in the tribe.

The families targeted by the elders included all descendants of a woman named Manuela Miranda, a relative of former chief Pablo Apis—that was Gomez’s family. It also included the Garbani family and the descendants of a woman named Paulina Hunter. The Hunter family included Lawrence Madariaga, the elder who had even received an award recognizing his long service to the tribe. To head off possible disenrollment action, members of Gomez’s family approached him about running for a position on the enrollment committee, figuring that by seating one of their own, they would have a chance to vote it down, he says. Gomez had already gained a reputation for service by lobbying in Sacramento to get the state to recognize the tribe’s right to operate a casino. He had little trouble winning a spot on the committee. But he quickly discovered how shadowy tribal politics could be. He was not allowed, for instance, to see the alleged backlog of applications that had led to the moratorium (of new applicants for tribal membership). Those were kept under lock and key, and only a handful of people were allowed to see them, he says. In the end, however, being on the enrollment committee only gave Gomez a front row seat to his own expulsion. Meeting in secret and without all of its members, the committee officially disenrolled more than 200 members of the Miranda line, including Gomez, who was not even allowed to cast a vote. In 1998, Gomez settled his own family a few miles from the reservation, in the town of Temecula, and he soon went to work for the tribe as its legal analyst.

of the casino's restaurant, his cousin was the casino's head of human resources, and other relatives helped draft the tribe's constitution. In 2002, Gomez and a cousin were elected to the Pechanga enrollment committee. Deluged with applications after the opening of its first gambling hall in 1995, the tribe imposed a moratorium the following year on accepting new adult members, although children of existing members were still permitted to apply. According to Gomez, he and his cousin found that the committee was not processing applications filed before the moratorium and was failing to enroll some members' children. Only after he called for an investigation, says Gomez, did questions about his own ancestry arise.

The Pechanga authorities (Tribal Chairman Mark Macarro) say they are just belatedly enforcing long-standing rules regarding descent and historical residence. In other tribes, too, disenrollment has been used as a club to settle scores and to protect political power. Forced to prove their Pechanga lineage, Gomez and his family searched through government archives and boxes tucked away in homes, eventually amassing hundreds of historical documents, many as old as the baptismal record from 1864.

John Gomez's case hinges not on his ancestor's blood, but as the ruling examines here, on where precisely Manuela Miranda lived at a specific time. In 1875, the Temecula were forced off their land by neighboring ranchers backed by San Diego County sheriffs. Many of them drifted away to towns; others resettled in the nearby Pechanga valley, which the

The tribe's constitution, passed in 1978, says that members must prove "descent from original Pechanga Temecula people." But in 1996 the tribal council tightened the rules, declaring for the first time that members had to have an ancestor from the subset of Temeculas who relocated to the Pechanga valley.

Gomez and his family point to minutes from the 1996 meeting indicating that the more stringent qualifications were not meant to be applied retroactively to established members such as themselves. Manuela Miranda was born in 1864 in the Temecula village.

The enrollment committee acknowledges that Miranda identified herself as an "Indian of the Pechanga Reservation" in a 1916 probate record. Unfortunately for Gomez, the enrollment-committee members with ties to the Concerned Pechanga People were reinstated before his case was considered: in resuming their positions, they were able to rule against him. The committee states that Miranda never relocated to the Pechanga valley, and therefore her progeny are not Pechangas. Yet Gomez's family insists that Miranda kept in close contact with her relatives on the reservation, and in affidavits elderly tribal members have sworn that they always viewed her as one of their own.

Gomez's disenrollment does not mean that he is not an Indian but it does put him outside the Pechanga tribe, costing him more than his monthly casino check, his job, and the health and life

Tickets at the door are $15/General Admission, or $10/Students, Seniors, and

Disappearing Indians - Part II Cont. from Page 2 insurance that came with it.

Members of Gomez's family can attest to this dilemma: since being disenrolled many of them have lost their federally funded Indian health care. There are now more than one thousand people fighting ejections from California tribes alone, and far more are embroiled in similar disputes nationwide. Yet for the disenrolled there is little recourse.

Gomez turned to state and federal courts, hoping they would be able to settle conflicting interpretations of tribal law and historical record. But the same sovereignty that allows Indian tribes to run casinos and sell fireworks also puts them largely outside the jurisdiction of the courts. A federal judge, ruling last September on another California case, wrote, "These doctrines of tribal sovereign immunity were developed decades ago, before the gaming boom created a new and economically valuable premium on tribal membership." Although the judge was unwilling to challenge the 1978 Supreme Court decision that made membership an internal tribal matter, she nevertheless found the case "deeply troubling on the level of fundamental substantive justice."

Gomez recently helped form the American Indian Rights and Resource Organization, which is calling on Congress to address the current spate of disenrollment abuse. The Pechanga, who are governed by a tribal council with seven elected members, have a separate enrollment committee that oversees membership applications and maintains a list of lawfully enrolled individuals based on eligibility requirements laid out in the tribe’s con-

sional concerts to local communities. Tickets are $30/adults; $20/seniors (65+); and $10/children, students, and active military.

stitution. With the prospect of so much wealth suddenly at play, the tribe claimed, the number of new applicants claiming to be Pechanga had spiked, creating a backlog.

Shortly before 2004, Gomez says, a group calling itself the Concerned Pechanga People began calling for the disenrollment of three entire family lines.

At the same time, the passage of Proposition 1A in 2000 had helped clear the way for further expansion of Pechanga’s gaming center. In 2002, the tribe had held the grand opening of its AAA-rated Four Diamond Pechanga Resort and Casino, which was now the largest in the state with thousands of slot machines, more than 100 table games, a nearly 200,000-square-foot casino floor, and more than 500 guest rooms.

With no new applications being accepted, the amount of money coming from casino revenues to each tribe member had gradually increased to as much as $15,000 or $20,000 a month. (Today it is an estimated $25,500 per month. Editor) Disenrolling hundreds of members would increase it even more. In 2006, Pechanga would again take what appeared to outside observers as arbitrary action against a single family line. (Ibid: Brian Frank)

The tribal council appeared bent on getting rid of the Hunter line. They had already commissioned a report by a respected anthropologist in Santa Barbara named John Johnson, asking him to look into the genealogy of Paulina Hunter. Hunter, the council claimed, was not Pechanga by descent, and so neither were her descendants.

Johnson concluded after exhaustive research that Hunter’s genealogical ties to the Pechanga appeared legitimate, but the council ignored both his report and their own moratorium on disenrollments to expel the Hunters anyway.

Johnson, who is a renowned anthropologist and had been hired by the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians to study their lineage and ancestry has called the tribe's recent disenrollment of a large family from its rolls "unfortunate and not based on solid evidence."

"They ignored whatever I did in their decisionmaking," said John Johnson, who was hired by Pechanga to determine whether Paulina Hunter was one of the tribe's ancestors. "It's too bad economics and politics have been injected into (tribal lineage rulings)."

A Powerful New Player (Ibid: Brian Frank)

Tribal governments together make up the fifth largest special interest group in the state, funneling more cash into California political campaigns than the powerful teachers unions or pharmaceutical manufacturers, according to MAPLight.org California, which tracks contributions. And the heads of two California tribes, including Pechanga chairman Mark Macarro, made Capitol Weekly’s list of the 100 most powerful political players in the state.

Macarro became arguably the most recognizable American Indian in the state when during the 2008 election season he served as the face of an aggressive if soft-spoken ad campaign to expand the number of slot machines legally allowed at four of California’s richest Indian reservations. That referendum, which voters approved, resulted in an increase of thousands of slot machines at casi-

Subsequently, more and more tribal members were removed from the rolls of the tribal membership. (Ibid: Brian Frank)

The term “disenrollment” is gradually gaining recognition outside of Indian Country. More than 20 tribes—a fifth of those federally recognized in California—have voted to disenroll members in the past two decades, more than in any other state. There is no official tally, but estimates collected from several activists indicate that more than 2300 American Indians have lost their tribal citizenship here since disenrollments started occurring more frequently in the late '90s. Meanwhile, some of these same tribes reap tremendous benefits from one of California’s newest and most powerful industries, Indian gaming, which for the past two years has outperformed the almighty Vegas Strip with its more than $7 billion in estimated annual revenues. What’s at stake here is not only the livelihood and identities of thousands of American Indians, but also who controls a gaming industry that has virtually overnight become both the richest of its kind in the nation and one of the most influential political lobbies in California.

“We need to do something to bring light to this issue, to help other people, to help each other, and to stop this thing,” says John Gomez, who as president of the activist group

The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office yesterday announced that an elderly couple who hoarded more than 180 Yorkie mix-breed dogs in unsanitary conditions in their Poway home and at other locations, have been arrested on multiple accounts of animal abuse.

“The shocking condition and sheer number of animals in the defendants’ home make this a particularly disturbing case of animal abuse,” said District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.

“Hoarding is a mental illness and we have compassion for individuals who suffer from the disease,” said Stephen MacKinnon, Chief of Humane Law Enforcement for San Diego Humane Society. “When they reach out to us for help and are cooperative, our priority is to get the animals to safety and get the individuals the help they need. In this instance, when we discovered the owners were withholding animals and interfering with an active investigation, it became intentional animal cruelty so criminal charges needed to be pursued. “We’re grateful for the support of the District Attorney’s office and to be in a community that doesn’t tolerate animal cruelty or neglect.”

The teen was on his motorcycle heading west on Borden Road near Fulton Road around 11:51 p.m. when he lost control and collided with several objects, said sheriff ’s Deputy Jameson Perham.

Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the collision, the sheriff ’s department said. An investigation is ongoing.

In the coming days, the dogs will be spayed and neutered and receive medical treatment and behavior assessments.

Detectives with the Santee Sheriff's Station are investigating this case and want your help in identifying the suspect.

San Diego County Sheriff ’s deputies report a 19-year-old man was seriously injured late Saturday night after losing control of his motorcycle on a San Marcos road.

I was born in a small Southwestern Minnesota town named Windom - a town very much like Lake Wobegon the venue from which all of Keillor’s stories begin. My mom’s maiden name was Tollefson . . . and there are Tollefson’s in almost every one of Keillor’s stories. As he describes the goings-on of small town Minnesota the memories come back to me. I can hear the sing-song cadence of Minnesotans talking - “Well, I better be gettin’ down to the grocery store, ya shure you betcha.”

It’s an easy, fun read and I am grateful to dear friends Dick and Marcia Jungas for giving the book to me. Dick is from Mountain Lake, Minnesota, less than 15 miles from Windom - so we have a rather close bond, being neighbors and all. So to speak. Plus, Dick is a fellow Kiwanian. Dick and Marcia own and operate California Funeral Alternatives. They provide traditional funeral services but primarily provide cremation services. Marcia, too, is from Minnesota - and she makes one of the finest clam

A couple of very special people and I’m proud to call them friends.

Every time I finish a chapter from Keillor’s book I thank the Jungas family, particularly Marcia. You may want to check the public library and see if you can snag a copy for your own reading pleasure.

Some other reading I’ve been doing recently is not nearly as much fun as Keillor’s book but is absolutely fascinating both for its content as well as the brilliant, well documented research within its covers.

David L. Toler, Jr., has authored “Blood of the Band, - An Ipai Family Story,” a scholarly book that documents the history of the Ipai/Kumeyaay Indian people.

If you’ve been following last week’s and this week’s cover story on the San Pasqual and Pechanga woes on disenrollment you will find this book to be very interesting. It’s not political but more historical. It backs up the statements made with governmental records, correspondence between governmental offices and officials, all types of documentary evidence. While it is not what I would call a “fun read,” is is an illuminating one. Serious scholars of the Ipai/Kumeyaay people should have this in the library. It is available on Amazon.com as well as at Barnes and Noble bookstores.

The Alto's should never have been enrolled in our tribe. They are Mexican's that, through marriage, were related to Frances Muncy, who used to work for the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

You, like me, probably get so wrapped up in your business and personal affairs of day to day life that you forget to take time out for yourself. Recently, a friend of mine in the medical profession told me I needed to get away for a day or so . . . and just relax. And so I did.

I visited Tamarack Beach Resort in Carlsbad . . . strolled up and down the boardwalk, enjoyed a nice meal at Dini’s, a restaurant adjacent to the resort hotel . . . did some people watching . . . and enjoyed a beautiful sunny day as we watched the phenomenally blue Pacific Ocean.

No big waves . . . not a lot of surfing that day . . . but just very relaxing. Three teams of women pla ying a volleyball tournament . . . on the sandy beach. People walking their dogs, all shapes and sizes, all breeds, mutts and pedigrees . . . a lone trumpeter playing “Amazing Grace.” People walking, jogging, riding bikes - a different lifestyle in Carlsbad. As I drank all of this in I again asked myself . . “I always enjoy myself when I do this . . . or when I got to La Jolla’s oceanfront park, with the pounding waves - why don’t I do this more often?

And the answer always is . . .”but I’m so busy.” I need to slow down. Life is too short to not take time to enjoy it.

Disappearing Indians - Part II Cont. from Page 3

American Indian Rights and Resources Organization has placed himself front and center in what some are calling a new civil rights movement.

The disenrolled have repeatedly sought help from the justice system, at first citing Public Law 280, which states that in certain situations California courts may serve as arbiters of tribal law. But the courts consistently declined to intervene, ruling that tribal membership matters do not fall within their jurisdiction. AIRRO casts disenrollment as an issue of civil and human rights. The organization is seeking to get help from the United Nations, from Congress, from state legislators, from anyone who may have the power to effect change.

One of AIRRO’s strategies now is to get legislators to beef up a 40-year-old law called the Indian Civil Rights Act, which was intended to protect tribal people from outside oppression. Ironically, today they want to use it to protect Indians from other Indians. On the issue of disenrollment, the BIA has maintained a neutral position except in cases where tribes have explicitly ceded authority over enrollment issues to the agency.

The tribe, for its part, would not weigh in for this report. Tribal chairman Mark Macarro did not reply to multiple phone calls and E-mail requests for an interview. The ONLY GOOD INDIAN, is a DISENROLLED INDIAN?

The Money

The tribal gambling industry which includes 72 casinos statewide, generated $7.3 billion in 2009, according to the annual Indian Gaming Industry Report compiled by economist Alan Meister from private and public sources and by: http://www.casinonewsdaily.com/2015/05/2 9/native-american-casinos-revenue-overviewand-trend-analysis/

original land grant reservation deed signed by McKinley where the Pechanga homes and dwellings are located.

As of now, those “outside” have no legal recourse, BECAUSE INDIAN RESERVATIONS ARE SOVEREIGN. Meaning they are beyond the USA courts. “In the meantime, Cuevas and Madariaga are left with memories and nowhere to turn.” Cuevas said, “Now we can’t be buried here next to our relatives.”

CA Indian gaming facilities = 72

Gaming revenue for CA Indian gaming = $7.3 billion Non-gaming revenue for CA Indian gaming = $832.3 million

As a collective bargaining group, and with huge pools of money suddenly at their disposal, California tribes now represent one of the most powerful business interests in the state, so the question of who controls them has become as relevant to voters as it is to the people who live under tribal law.

Official amounts of per capita payments are not released to the public. The amounts vary, according to various sources. The amounts can also fluctuate, depending on how much the casinos make in a particular quarter or year.

Meanwhile, The Pala Band of Mission Indians in N. San Diego County eliminated 154 people, taking a cue from their relatives and neighbors at Pechanga. Those disenrollments represented 15% of their Tribe.

The huge amounts of money involved has to be tempting to tribal leaders. Tempting to anyone in a position of control, to manipulate money, to use as a political weapon, to manipulate people, as in enrolling or disenrolling tribal members.

Pala spokesman Doug Elmets said the tribal council made the decision to remove the additional 154 people but he declined to discuss the reason for the removal.

Those kicked out insist the issue is really about money. They are being deprived of healthcare, education opportunities for the children and monthly stipends. Rick Cuevas and Michael Medariaga are the major combatants on the side disbarred in 2006.

"It is important to remember that the U.S. Supreme Court, in the Santa Clara Pueblo v. Martinez case in 1978, held that a tribe's right to define its own membership has long been recognized as central to its existence," Elmets said.

Rick Cuevas and Michael Madariaga, who are cousins and who descend from the Hunter line, say, “We have the original deed signed by President McKinley.”

Edward Sifuentes of the North County Times reported: Pala officials said last year that the tribe had 918 members; thus the 154 people expelled Wednesday account for about 15 percent of the

Madariaga is the spokesman for those excommunicated. He also states, “It’s about money and political power.” He has the

Those who have been expelled from Pala stand to lose more than $150,000 a year in payments from the tribe's Pala Casino Resort and Spa, which is about 15 miles north of Escondido. Later, March 17, 2012|Tony Perry, of the Los Angeles Times reported:

The governing board of the Pala Band in the last year has "disenrolled" some 162 descendants of Britten, cutting them off from their monthly share of the tribe's profit from casino, hotel and other business ventures, about $7,500 a month, in addition to health insurance and other benefits. The Pala dispute echoes those at other Indian tribes in California and elsewhere, where money has complicated disputes over identity, nationhood and personality conflicts, according to David Wilkins, professor of American Indian studies at the University of Minnesota and a member of the Lumbee tribe in North Carolina. The money has led to excesses, such as problem gambling, and aggravated other issues, such as drug and alcohol addiction. There are no studies that address the extent of the problem, but some tribal leaders acknowledge it exists. Some children are losing interest in school and work, in part because they know that when they turn 18, they will get their per capita payments, tribal leaders say. "It's their mentality," Pala Treasurer Theresa Nieto said. "That's the

toughest part ---- getting our youth to understand." What to Do?

Frequent poster to the Original Pechanga blog, Allen Lee, once said: If the disenrollments and moratorium can be directly tied to racketeering by criminals who have a strangle-hold on the tribal government, then federal intervention may be warranted for both the disenrollments and the moratorium.

wants that . . . but it is likely to happen if the problems are not addressed.

Look at your own situation. If someone took $126,000 a year, or $306,000 a year away from you and your family, through no fault of your own, and nobody listened or acted on your complaints, would you not feel compelled to take more forceful action?

The last action is, of course, the least desirable . . . but is a distinct possibility if the voices of the disenrolled are not heard.

Update: The writ of ceriorari sought by the Ray Alto family, was denied. According to Alto’s attorney, Tracy Emblem, this exhausts the legal remedies available to the Alto family. Their story was the cover story in last week’s edition of The Paper. Observations about possible actions:

1. If the disenrolled are able to come together as an organized group and travel to Sacramento and campout on the doorstep of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and demand to be heard, they will get media attention as well as attention from officials. 2. The same technique should be applied to members of the Assembly and State Senate. 3. These protests should be peaceful, but regularly scheduled, and loud enough to attract attention. 4. A ‘scorched earth policy’ exists . . . but probably an uphill battle, given the heavy treasury available to the tribe and its casino operators. If an organization can successfully petition the government to withdraw recognition of the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians as a tribal government then they may not legally operate businesses, including a casino; they would also be ineligible for federal grants. This information directly from the Bureau of Indian Affairs 5. If officials do not respond, it is only a matter of time before individuals and/or groups take physical action – revenge against disenrollment committee members . . . against tribal elders, and against government officials who “do nothing” to address the problem. This translates to violence. Nobody

Re: Chuckles & Women

As a reader of The Paper, I am appalled at how often women are denigrated in Chuckles. I’ve been reading these insults for months but with this issue I am forced to comment on this practice.

63 Tribal governments have signed tribal-state gaming compacts with the state of California. Included in the compacts are provisions for revenue sharing with non-gaming tribes, environmental protections, and labor agreements. There are also 72 CA Indian gaming facilities. The gaming revenue for California Indian gaming alone is $7.3 billion

“They are not taking any role in these matters,” Wass said. “The Congress will not take responsibility for its actions.” http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sdutsan-pasqual-tribe-enr ollment-pr otest2014apr10-story.html

The readers are free to decide for themselves where the truth lies.

It would mean that every official act made by suspect government officials was also suspect, including state gambling compacts, disenrollments and the moratorium, land into trust, BIA contracts, etc.

She said Congress and the federal government need to address them.

We stand by our story, our research, and our conclusions.

It looks like racketeering, embezzlement, and fraud should be investigated.

Laura L. Wass, central California director of the American Indian Movement, an American Indian civil rights organization, was quoted by the UnionTribune as saying: Among local tribes, large groups of people have been expelled from the Pechanga, Pala and San Pasqual tribes after those tribes started building casinos about 15 years ago.

Protecting Seniors from Abuse

My Assembly Bill 728 will not allow convictions of elder/dependent adult abuse to be eligible for "expungement". An expungement proceeding is designed to have the records of a prior conviction destroyed, eliminated or sealed. While current law allows expungement of criminal records under certain circumstances, elder abuse should not be included. San Diego County alone handles approximately 9,000 cases of this type of abuse each year alone. By preventing persons who have committed these types of crimes from re-entering the workforce in the same field, AB 728 will protect a defenseless population from suffering further offenses by those hired to care for them. Secondly, my bill, AB 502, will establish a two-year pilot program in San Diego County permitting the Victim Compensation Board to reimburse victims of elder or dependent adult financial abuse

What kind of respect is this? It is representing the worst of male chauvinism!

“Fake News”

I was having lunch at a restaurant today, and reading your fascinating cover story about Indian Tribal disenrollment practices. The legalese had my head spinning, but as I was finishing the story, a woman walked up to me and said she was a Community Affairs "Commissioner" for one of the tribes, and "not to believe everything in the article, because it was exaggerated, and incorrect". She didn't use the term "Fake News", but just as with (T)Rump (the "T" is silent), when someone claims the media is wrong, the media must be on to something. Great investigative reporting. Keep up the good work. Regards, Steve Beulke

for the costs of financial or mental health counseling. When seniors are robbed of their life savings they don't always know where to turn for help. Many, sadly, resort to suicide or other dependence. During 2014-2015, San Diego County’s Adult Protective Services confirmed a total of 1,148 cases of elder/dependent adult financial abuse. With its large retiree population and high number of reported elder financial abuse cases, San Diego County is well-situated to implement this pilot program. Under provisions of AB 502, compensation will be limited to $3,000 per person, and essential data will be gathered to determine the overall effectiveness of this type of program in helping victims regain their dignity and restore their independence and self-respect. Passage of these two bills will provide badly needed protections and assistance that will enhance and safeguard the lives of some of our most vulnerable citizens.

Women and their Inventions

Dear Lyle:

I read The Paper, and find many of its articles both informative and enjoyable. As you can expect, the articles which I enjoy the most are those on subjects where I have little prior information, such as the one on Women's Suffrage (Feb. 23, 2017.)

The list of inventions for which women are responsible attracted me because I have considerable experience in those which cover Electronic Technologies. From 1951 to when I retired in 1992, I worked on items such as hearing aids, solar cells, night vision, electronic materials, nuclear reactors, and so on. Now, far be it from me to claim "involvement" in all these areas. My work includes a number of books and papers in refereed journals, and a general acceptance of my work in them. I have a Wikipedia article, "Sorab K. Ghandhi" which spells these out in detail, for your interest.

Returning to your list of inventions, I am afraid it is riddled with exaggerations to the point where it is, in itself, an invention. Here are a few issues: Item 9, on Ada Lovelace, and Item 12, on Hedy Lamarr, are both correct, even though neither were inventors. Lamarr's work was a precursor to Qualcomm, but it would be a bit of a stretch to say she "invented" Qualcomm. Item 10, on Shirley Jackson (Telecommunications), has little relevance to her technical contributions. Her Doctorate was in Elementary Particle Theory in 1973, and she chaired the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 1995. Her extensive Wikipedia article has

no technical references. It makes for interesting reading, and I would urge the author of this article to do this.

I am not qualified to comment on many of the others. However, the points I made here should caution your readers about the entire article. As they say, "A Little knowledge is a Dangerous Thing". Cheers,

The 20th Century’s Great American Songwriter

While a number of composers like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and others could be considered America’s greatest songwriter, George Gershwin has to be at the top of that list for his ability to write both popular as well as classical music. But, he was a shining star who burned out at the young age of 39.

Gershwin was born in New York city poverty on Sept. 26, 1898. Among his best-known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue (1924) and An American in Paris (1928).

It’s arguable to say America was introduced to modern-day jazz in 1924 when he played Rhapsody in Blue on the piano with the Paul Whitman Orchestra in a New York City concert. Gershwin began his career plugging songs, but before long he was composing Broadway theatre works with his brother Ira. He later moved to Paris where he began to compose An American in Paris. After returning to New York City, he wrote Porgy and Bess with Ira and the author DuBose Heyward. Initially a commercial failure, Porgy and Bess is now considered one of the most important American operas of the 20th century. In 1919, Gershwin scored his first big hit, Swanee with words by Irving Caesar. Al Jolson, the most popular entertainer of the day, sang it on the Broadway stage. Of all his many compositions, it became Gershwin’s most popular and successful piece.

In 1924, George and brother, Ira, collaborated on a stage musical comedy Lady Be Good, which included such future standards as Fascinating Rhythm and Oh, Lady Be Good!They followed this with Oh, Kay! (1926); Funny Face (1927); Strike Up the Band (1927 and 1930). Gershwin gave Strike Up The Band, with a modified title, to UCLA as a

Gershwin moved to Hollywood, California. He was commissioned by RKO Pictures in 1936 to write the music for the film Shall We Dance, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Early in 1937, Gershwin began getting blinding headaches. On Feb. 11, 1937, Gershwin performed his Piano Concerto in F in a special concert of his music with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Gershwin, normally a superb pianist in his own compositions, suffered coordination problems and blackouts during the performance.

Gershwin’s troubles with coordination and mental acuity worsened, and on the night of July 9, 1937, Gershwin collapsed. He was rushed to Cedars of Lebanon, where he fell into a coma. Only at that point did it become obvious to his doctors that he was suffering from a brain tumor. An attempt to remove the tumor was made, but it proved unsuccessful, and Gershwin died on the morning of July 11, 1937, at the age of 39. Gershwin's many friends and fans were shocked and devastated. Playwright John O'Hara remarked, "George Gershwin died on July 11, 1937, but I don't have to believe it if I don't want to."

A memorial concert was held at the Hollywood Bowl on Sept. 8, 1937, at which Otto Klemperer conducted his own orchestration of the second of Gershwin's Three Preludes. Gershwin received his sole Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song at the 1937 Oscars for They Can't Take That Away from Me, written with his brother Ira for the 1937 film Shall We Dance. The nomination was posthumous.

Months before he died, George was working on a melody for which Ira simply couldn’t find the right words. Grieving for his beloved brother, words that fit George’s illusive melody came to Ira after George’s death. The result: Love Is Here To Stay. The song isn’t about the love between a man and woman, rather that of two brothers.

There was a sign on the cage that said $20.00. "Why so little?" she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said, "Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff." The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room, and waited for it to say something.

The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought "that's really not so bad." When her two teenage daughters returned from school,the bird saw them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls." The girls and the woman were a bit offended, But then they began to laugh about the situation considering how and where the parrot had been raised. The bird looked at him and said, "Hi Keith." ••••• GOLF AND WHAT IT ALL MEANS Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer. Golf! You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. The lowest score wins, on top of that, the winner buys the drinks.

Golf is harder than baseball. In Golf, you have to play your foul balls.

when we boot the computer, the problem has disappeared. Problems that disappear usually have something to do with the set-up environment at the home or office (keyboard, mouse, monitor, printer, power cord, surge protector etc). There’s no charge and the perplexed but happy customer gets to take it back and try again. Sometimes we will see a minor problem that requires a simple fix. If it doesn’t break our “ten minute rule” it’s a “freebie.” When we diagnose a problem that isn’t a quick fix we provide a free estimate on the repair. We often get calls from frustrated Cox, Time Warner (Spectrum) or AT&T Internet users when they can’t connect to Internet. They called their ISP (Internet service provider) and were told that there is something wrong with their computer because there is nothing wrong with the service. We have them bring in the PC. It only takes a couple of minutes to determine whether or not their PC is the problem. If we determine that the Internet access problem really is the PC, we can provide the user with a “fix it” estimate. If the PC is not the connection problem, the user now knows the problem is with the ISP.

critical to the business. If the application meets the needs of the user and won’t run on newer operating systems, it can be more cost effective to keep the old computer running than to buy new applications software. We are able to keep their old hardware running and/or provide them with a back-up system. There is a fundamental difference between the Big Box stores (Fry’s, Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples) and the small local computer stores like “The Computer Factory.” The job of the Big Box store is the high volume sales of electronics components and systems. Our job is to find the best solutions for our customer’s problems and needs. They are sales oriented, we are service

oriented. We both can sell you new PC systems, but we can fix your existing system and they can’t. Doesn’t mean they are bad people. Fixing PCs and solving problems simply isn’t their job. Their service department exists to support the sale of inventory. With us, the opposite is true. Our inventory exists to support our service. We can give our customers information about their PC’s capabilities, what it’s worth and how much it will cost to fix it. If our customer decides not to fix their existing PC we can offer them a trade-in on a full range of refurbished or new desktop or notebook PCs. That’s what we do.

Some of our customers have ancient PCs with old operating systems (Windows XP, 98, 3.0 or even DOS) running applications that are Genova, when they meet on Tuesday, March 14th at 6pm, in the Turrentine Room of the Library, 239 S.

When family patriarch Joe O’Brien is diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, a fatal disorder with no cure, his family is stunned. His adult children must decide whether to be tested for Huntington’s and face their sentence, or live with the anxiety of not knowing. Throughout this struggle, Inside the O’Briens beautifully examines the resilience of the human spirit.

If you find you do not mind playing Golf in the rain, the snow, even during a hurricane, here's a valuable tip ...your life is in trouble. Golfers who try to make everything perfect before taking the shot rarely make a perfect shot.

A 'gimme' can best be defined as an agreement between two golfers ...neither of whom can putt very well. An interesting thing about Golf is that no matter how badly you play, it is always possible to get worse.

Golf's a hard game to figure. One day you'll go out and slice it and shank it, hit into all the traps and miss every green. The next day you go out and for no reason at all you really stink.

Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside Why Marriage is Such a Challenge

Recently I was going through some old files and came across an article that might just explain why members of the opposite sex have a hard time getting along. It reads: If Laura, Suzanne, Debra and Rose go out for lunch, they call each other Laura, Suzanne, Debra and Rose. If Mike, Charlie, Bob and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Rocco and Flash.

When the bill arrives, Mike, Charlie, Bob and John will each throw in $20, even though the bill is only $53. None of them will have anything smaller, or admit

A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item she doesn’t want.

A man has six things in his bathroom: toothpaste, toothbrush, shaving cream, a razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn. The average number of items in the typical women’s bathroom is 337. No man will be able to identify all of those items. A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn’t. A man marries a woman expecting she won’t change, but she does.

To address this challenge, the Bible gives a simple (though not necessarily easy) solution for making marriage work: Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8).

" Lecturer," she responded. " I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality." Really?" he said. "And what kind of myths are there?"

"Well," she explained, "One popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait. Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best.

Training for Emergencies

The Vista Fire Department encourages residents to train and prepare themselves for emergency situations by enrolling in the upcoming April Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program. This program educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. Using their training, Vista CERT members can tend to themselves, their families and their neighborhoods in the event of a disaster. The next CERT class is scheduled to start on Tuesday, April

11, at 6:30 pm and will run for eight consecutive Tuesdays, through May 30. The class will meet each Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm for eight consecutive weeks.

The CERT program covers a wide range of topics including fire safety and basic medical operations. Enrollment and materials are free of charge and open to individuals 18 years of age or older, or those 16 and 17 years old with a signed permission slip and waiver from their parents. For enrollment information, please check the Vista CERT website at VistaCert.org.

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood

Annual Ironman 70.3 Oceanside Triathlon

Come join us on Saturday, April 1st, for the a n n u a l Ironman 70.3 Oceanside triathlon. This event is a local favorite and takes place from 6:30 am to 4:00 pm. The race begins at the pier amphitheater and ends at the ocean’s edge. Racers will swim in the calm, protected Harbor, where water temperatures are in the low to mid 60’s. The bike course takes riders along the California coastline to San Clemente before dropping down into Camp Pendleton. Here, challenging hills confront athletes before they swing back to the Oceanside Pier. The run portion takes athletes on a winding journey

along the pier, then out to the beachfront path known as “The Strand”, where miles of sandy beaches provide a beautiful and distracting view. Next, runners turn into a residential area before heading back out for a grand finish at the ocean’s edge and a chute lined with energetic spectators!

I n added bonus for participants is volunteers from units at Camp Pendleton, who provide more than half of the race staff. The presence of so many men and women who serve in the Marine Corps is a great source of pride for them. For more information, visit www.ironman.com or call 760-420-9407.
