FRESNO BEE REPORTS: Patrons of Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino in Coarsegold were abruptly ushered out of the casino in mid-game Thursday night and the casino and hotel were apparently closed, according to patrons.
Madera County sheriff’s spokewoman Erica Stuart said tribal factions were feuding again and someone pulled a fire alarm to evacuate the building. She said it is not known who pulled the alarm. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating, she said.
Stuart said she was advised that only people who have rented rooms at the hotel will be allowed back in Thursday night.
Donn Hanfler of Merced said he was playing Spanish 21 at a table about 7:45 p.m. when a security guard ordered the game shut down and the players to leave. Players were not allowed to cash in their chips or tickets, and even cashiers were locked out, he said.
“They threw us all out,” he said. “I ended up getting screwed out of my money.”
he National Indian Gaming Commission says the casino could close Oct. 27 if the missing audits are not submitted. The tribe also faces fines of up to $100,000 per day dating back to April 30. If fully assessed, those fines would equal $16 million.
In a five-page letter dated Tuesday, the NIGC's acting chairman, Jonodev Chaudhuri, said that casino officials have not filed financial statements and audits dating back to 2012 and 2013, the earliest of which was due on April 30, 2013.
Audits are required so that the government officials are assured that tribal gaming meets certain federal guidelines.
Nice job tex shut the casino. How could you think it was smart to send 30 armed guards in the casino to kick customers out. Tex I hope you end up in prison again!
Tex laid hands on men and women, send him back to prison.....
See Gary montana you should have continued on the path of truth, but you abandoned truth and right for money. You were hired by the citizens and the people, knowing the truth and to do right, and allowed evil to buy you off. Now evil is out of control.... lmao
there was not 30 ppl armed guards and the armed guards are on lewis side...and have we forgot who started this mess? do you people really think the lewis fraction i capable of running the tribe/casino when they are the ones who have not submitted audits? did you all see the boxes of documents that they were trying to remove from the casino? what you do in the dark will always rise to the surface in the light!
Anonymous And want to remain
Anonymous and yes great job by
all they all need to be charge
for wrong doings. And the goverment
must step in and solve all this
and yes shut it down. And gather
information and see what is going
on. And someone will get hurt or
die from this crazyness it must
be resolved many people are getting
screwed on this. Yes audit all of
them all sides. And the safety
for the patrons and employees
think about them as well.
I just read where this tribe put up $$$$ 5.4 million to stop other tribes from gaming ! Maybe they need to ask for the money back cause it looks like they will need it for what there are going to pay in fines, KARMA bites all that does wrong.
Wow, I sure want to go that tribe, not. All kidding aside, we are proving that we are incapable of handling our own affairs. With corruption and cheating as a way of doing business we are no better than those who placed us on the reservation in the first place. Where is the pride. Was it lost with the generations of reservation living. I once thought that the casino would help our people, but now I know they may be the tool used to kill our culture off. It is time to go and cleans our minds, bodies, and spirits. We need to dance by the fire, but dance in ceremony that has been blessed, and away from those who seek to take advantage. It is time to collect sage.
Neither faction is doing right, monica stole papers too when she broke into the tribal court with montana. The feds need to shut it down not one side or the other. All councils need to go to prison not just one or the other... shut down gaming there are better ways to preserve our tribe without the greed. Take away the money....
Chance and Reggie suck each other's dicks hardcore!
Tex wants in on it too and so does that dike Nancy! :)
Jennifer is a slut who sniffs assholes.
Tracy and Hadley are gay boys who need to quit showing off in their Bently. They bought it with blood money.
Vernon you nigger! He needs to go back to Africa!
Karen Winn you look like my saggy left nut, quit calling yourself a doctor you sick piece of shit.
All these people are wannabe Indians.
All these hoes are liars and cheats. Go back to where you came from which is hell.
Boycott Chukchansi Casino.
I cannot understand why the honest hardworking tribal members have not come forth to put a stop to this. All the of the council members from when this mess started need to step down! My question for those of you who have a brain is this: Why do you continue to follow Tex, Donna, Monica, Vernon, Linda, Reggie, Chance, Nokomis, Jennifer, Tracy, Charles, Amanda, Morris, Dora, Patrick, David H, Chenot family ? The tribal members have the power to get the truth out of these past and present council members! If you don't, then you are no better than the rest of them. It will show that you all no better than them and all you want is the money. The only people who are really coming out ahead are the attorneys, vendors, etc., not the real Chukchansi people. Just remember those of you who have the power and knowledge to change things yet sit by and watch, do nothing, you will all have to answer to higher power one day on why you did nothing!!!!
Charles is suspended and hasn't set with tex since august 8th and do you see him on the 8th floor. No nigga king life
Lmao now the feds shut it down. Ibia better hurry. Tex had a prison flashback.... on the news hitting people on the floor.
So again some immature asshole as resorted to calling ppl derogatory names, wow really, but you don't have the balls to say any of that to anyone's face! How bout u do everyone a favor and kill yourself, the world is made of enough stupid scared ass people.
Lmao wow! You guys are all wacky
OMG! I am Chukchansi and live way south of all this cluster fuck shitless fuckfaces who call them self the rightful, unification, or what ever the fuck tribal leadership. All i know is we as a "normal" chukchansi indian get 400 bucks per month and they get millions!!! They are driving bentlys?? Or did you see this big kickass Lincolns driving away after they closed the casino??? What the fuck! I say close the casino down permanently or see it to the Mono indians which are licking their chops by the way. Keep the casino closed and arrest and charger all of these so called tribal leaders and put them in prisn where they belong!!!
and people wonder why the american government easily fooled these stupid fucken indians and took their land from them. It was so easy because they are so fucken stupid back then and they are ever more stupid today! WTF! They were making money! They let a few bad fuck heads who think they are educated because they have had some coaching classes run this multi million dollar company. All of them from reggie lewis to tex mcdonald. stupid is as stupid does! hope you are brought to justice and imprisioned and have all of the money you STOLE given back to the banks you greedy fucks!!

Just copy and past or read it, for the article is also in the Press Enterprise. It is a great place to leave a comment and further the message.
I know these day would come...
And seen on TV how Reggie acts
so inosent hey look back he has
cause all this BS And he also
needs to be audit as well there
is millions that are not accountable
when he was in office I think he
payed off the Madera Police
department to back him up he is
the worse of all he can join the
rest of them in prison to. I
think it needs to shut down and
letthem investigate and then we
will find the truth in all this
shit. And if they have nothing to
hide hey let look at the files
the audit means the goverment
but i think the are in big trouble.
Reggie Lewis fraction is a joke, they just gave themselves raises of $13k and the tribe is having these problems an I am supposed to recognize them as the council...no thank you!
Maybe the people of Chukchansi should see take advantage of this opportunity. Call an emergency meeting of the General Membership, and get the people together. Draft a petition for an election and see if there are enough people to pass it. Make sure the petition states that the leaders of all three factions have failed to carry out the orders of the General Membership and that none of them can be nominated or run for office ever again. Submit this petition to the BIA and ask for a BIA observer of the nomination and voting procedures so that the vote can be certified. Bar any of the former tribal officials from participating in any of these activities. In fact the first action of the meeting can be to suspend them from office pending investing of their actions, and to bar them from participating or interfering with the political process of the tribe.
It might be a start in the right direction. Of course the BIA might choose to endorse the last legitimately elected tribal officers as they have already done. A lawyer well versed in tribal law and federal regulations might be able to show you a way to get the BIA to recognize the wishes of the General Membership instead of giving deference to corrupt and criminal tribal officials who have failed to uphold the law. The tribe should be well within its rights to suspend those who are involved with the closure of the tribe's main source of income. If that isn't a major offense I don't know what is.
Back to name calling Your parents taught you well
OK so we've established that we got some facts about people as said to Bernadine "this uncle tom thing is redundant" they can't say anything else about him you know why "cuz he DA king" uncle Elroy voice. Let's all sing the babies a nursery rhyme come on everybody ... Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me...night night hater tell ya momma I said hiiiiiii lmao.
I must say whomever is saying people need to go back to where you come from, you sound like a good ole boy....meaning the new and improved KKK, you as stupid as your mother for having you, your dumb ass probably living in Fresno or Madera with no ties to the rancheria...you probably don't even know the heritage you too busy living in the trailor trash you are accustomed too....go somewhere and take a nap. Are you mad because the $400 check that you wait for the mailman to deliver to you will not being coming this week... maybe you should try getting a job and stop living off the system dumb ass!
To the other person who lives south and collects your $400 check every month but wants the casino to close for good, I am confused you are standing for what? You do realize with a closed casino the $400 monthly check will STOP? I need you to stop commenting, you don't make any sense. I hope your not in charge of anything because if you are, with those common sense it's sure to fail!
Apartheid running bands should not get any support. They don't support "ALL" band members.
Dear Team Members,
As we receive our ballots to vote on November 4th, many of you have asked about Proposition 48. Since the voter information guide is a bit confusing, maybe even misleading, we want to be clear that Prop. 48 is bad for the vast majority of tribes and California. Thus, we ask you to vote NO on Prop. 48.
Proposition 48 is not about Indian gaming, it is about a Las Vegas Casino corporation (Station Casinos) attempting an end-run in order to place a new Indian casino in an urban area - away from existing tribal lands. In doing so, Proposition 48 breaks the promise that Pechanga and other tribes made to the voters of California: that Indian gaming would be limited to Indian lands.
Prop. 48 would also be unfair to the vast majority of tribes in California that have honored the promise of limiting gaming to existing Indian lands. If approved, Prop. 48 would open the door to an expansion of gaming into urban areas.
This is why we respectfully ask that you vote NO on 48 and encourage your family and friends to also vote NO on 48.
Please contact Jacob Mejia at Jmejia@pechanga-pdc.com if you have any questions. Thank you.

To the King Family, I admire and respect you guys for your strength and courage to speak the truth about your mother,father & brother Vernon. King Family you do not owe them no explanation. Yes,she is true chukchansi and your father is african american. And no she was not banned from the mountain, when her grandparents (Dick & Matilda Neal), mother(Sophie Neal), uncle(John Neal)and her dad(Harry Jones) passed away. Their mother made the chose not to return. She left on her own to start a new life. It was her sisters who was ashamed of her. It caused their kids not to know that they have 10 cousins. She knew that her beautiful children would missed their Indian Heritage. I can remember being at their mother's funeral in 2007 and the former tribal chair-leader Dustin Graham said he was honored that the Kings had allowed him to be a pallbearer for their mother. Dustin spoke about their mother and other Indians on how they was forced to go to school at an early aged (elementary) to the Sherman Institute school and that she was a beautiful chuckchansi woman. Dustin said he was glad to see the King Family back into the tribe. Their uncle Harold(Margaret's Hammond son)song & spoke kind words. It touched my heart to see some of her chukchansi family like her sister's Clara Saragosa kids attend her service. But to read about the ignorance of the people/peoples hiding behind blogs. The Kings Family are not the only blacks in the tribe. Did you also forget that you have blacks in your family look around Ted Adkins is black, and those in your family who walks around sagging,talking,wanting to be NIGGAS...so who's is the NIGGAS now. I see alot of mixed breed mexicans & whites who claim to be pure chukchansi but is ashamed of being mixed with another race.So how come your not bashing them? Is it because you and your family falls into the catergory. I can see you poor people/peoples have no education/or proper raising by your elders. You hang on the coat tail of those elders who hated Matilda Jones and her family. I find it total disrespectful to speak of her or them. Have you really sat down to get to know the Kings Family? Dustin Graham have. I would say NO..But yet you hate them because of what? Let me move on to business of our the Casino (billion dollar business) Vernon King was elected in December 2013 along with Linda Applings,Donna Featherstone,Tex McDonald and Monica Davis was appointed on the tribal council. So our TRIBAl COUNCILS Tex McDonald chose to do the right thing and go forth on the audits (millions of dollars embezzled)by the unification councils and their families, and to those that are paid and still getting paid to keep them hush. Ask Farren Davis who questioned Chance Alberta on the monies he was going to steal and all of the MILLIONS OF DOLLARS that he & the unification have stolen. Even MILLIONS pertaining to Chukchansi Inc. But yet, you guys are mad at the King Family, Tex McDonald councils for taking back the Casino. You need to blame the Reggie Lewis and his crew on why they did not supply the AUDITS(2011,2012,& 2013) and still haven't. We need to get them criminlas out. Open the CASINO & 1200 team workers get them back and running. Because we do have team workers who are your family/yourselves out of jobs. Tex McDonald tribal councils is bringing the truth to the general councils that Reggie Lewis and the unification don't care about us. Ask them why did they give themselves and tribal gaming a raise of $13,000 and you guys got maybe $400 plus. And they secretly give the Wyatts & Ramirezs and their family members over $10,000 a month. So let us ALL BAND TOGETHER and GET TO WORK SMART PEOPLES..
I would like to know if I am getting my ticket redeemed? This is theif, An they should be locked up for stealing from the people.
I was kinda feeling bad for the Kings until that last part where you mentioned that the Ramirez are getting money from the unification counsel. That is a lie. Now I realize that you are just another nigger. Leave the Ramirez and others that you don't really know out of it. Those are good people!
