The Morongo Band of Mission Indians turned an $8.1 million check over to the California Gambling Control Commission on Wednesday, a delivery the tribe views as an antidote for the ailing state budget. A VERY sloooooow working antidote: That was Million not BILLION.
Jacob Mejia, public affairs director for Pechanga, said Pechanga's compact requires the first payment be made by July 30. "The tribe will make its first of many contributions by that date,'' he said. OP: Check's in the mail??? Is Pechanga having a cash flow problem from shutting down their nightclubs due to thug behavior of the tribal youth, serving the young, paying $50 million to convince Californians that they are good people?
