POT meet Kettle: From Tribal Chairman Mark Macarro: "Pechanga is in it to kill the project until the end. The only thing that really changed in the voting outcome was Supervisor Tavaglione's position. No one else changed their vote. "We are profoundly disappointed in Supervisor Tavaglione's flip-flop and the certification of this inferior document." This was his comment in regards to Tavaglione's acceptance of an evironmental impact report on the Liberty Quarry issue.
Remember when Macarro lied to Congress?
According to its stated purpose at the time, the tribe wanted to maintain existing cultural resources and native vegetation of cultural significance to tribal life, Silver said. Pechanga asserted in its application that given the "vast occurrence of cultural resources found on the site, no development is proposed." Based on that assurance, the Bureau of Indian affairs concluded in March 2001 that the proposed annexation would not harm the environment. By early 2007, however, the tribe was building a golf course on a portion of the land, Silver said
