Why the City of Temecula LOSES to Pechanga. UPDATED

Now we know why the City of Temecula's ill-fated suit against Pechanga failed.  It's because they don't have any brains at the city.

The City of Temecula is holding their "STATE of the CITY" event at the Pechanga Resort and Casino!     Now, let's see:

A tribe that signs a contract with you to give the city $2 Million a year then reneges on it and then you have an event there?     The city should halt ANY business with the tribe and not let the Casino prosper from the city coffers, while Pechanga has a stranglehold on money they promised.

UPDATE:  In following the link on the state of the city, the city is ALSO holding a golf ticket sale at JOURNEY, the golf course on the Pechanga Reservation, that was built on a site that Chairman Macarro promised would not be built upon, you know, the one that has our ancestors buried on it?

Another question:  WHY wouldn't the city support a venue that is know, IN THE CITY?   You know, city council, one that pays TAXES to the city?

Is Mark Macarro kidding? He acts like he cares about Luiseno historical and cultural sites but the fact is he promised in 2002 that if the Great Oak Ranch was put into trust and made part of the reservation that the tribe would do no changes whatsoever but once the tribe got the land as trust land they tore up a large portion of it and today a large part of the Journey at Pechanga golf course sits on that land.

Macarro made the same argument to the United States congress and to the U.S. Department of Interior about the Great Oak Ranch property that he is using regarding the Liberty Quarry project that, by the way, I am against.

Let the public record speak for itself regarding Macarro's environmental and cultural behavior.

Below is from the United States congressional record, April 17, 2002:

Mr. Hayworth. "Thank you, Mr. Avery.
Chairman Macarro, does the Pechanga Tribe have any plans
for development of any kind on the Great Oak Ranch property?"

Mr. Macarro. "No, we don't. As stated in our application to
Interior/BIA, we stated or have designated there is no change
of use in the property, and the intended use and purpose is to
preserve and protect the resources that are there."

Mr. Hayworth. "Without objection, we would welcome that.
Just one follow-up, and for purposes of the record, Mr.
Chairman, does the tribe plan to use the Great Oak Ranch for
gaming purposes or any purposes other than what you have just

Mr. Macarro. No, the tribe does not."

No I don't want the Liberty Quarry project to forever change the fabric of an important cultural and historical Luiseno site but Macarro has a lot of nerve to make it sound like he gives 'one rat's ass' about the land when his track record says otherwise.

Hey, do you think Macarro wants the land that the Liberty Quarry project would be on put into trust and made part of the reservation?

If that is the case, do you think the tribe might tear it up as well and put maybe some kind of amusement park on it or something similar?

After all that would probably be a money maker and like the golf course, an amusement park or similar venture has nothing to do with tribal culture and history.

I remember meetings where Mark Spoke about a desire to acquire a rock quarry as he stated that a lot of money can be made in this kind of business venture.

I can almost see the dollar signs in his eyes..... Caaaching!

Yes, I remember there was talk at one time about the tribe having its own rock quarry.

But I guess Mark would oppose anything that is not on tribal land that the tribe can't profit from.

I put my posts about the rock quarry on the wrong thread but I have copied them to the thread about the rock quarry.

The city lost because they were wrong. They signed an agreement that clearly made this suit pointless and yet they still when ahead with it wasting everyones time and money.

My recommendation to the city is read contracts before you sign them.

Agreed, on the portion that the city should read contracts before you sign them.

Now, they are itching with the fleas they got from the dogs they lied down with.
