Look at the article posted the 16th, mr J is taking the credit for the ban on alcohol on the reservation,b ecause he dont like people dying in his arms, what about the kids now, the3y are still becoming alcoholics, because alcohol is so free for them because of the bootleggers, and the concern about his kids and grandkids, a little late wouldnt you say? and whaqt is he doing about that, nothing same thing like letting patti ho sell her beer, so much for self rigteouness.I think what little common sense he ever had is going, going, going. gone.....

So they bought into another group,I think it is only to generate more money for Mike and his followers. And what about the Shokpee money. did they get that, every thing is done secretly so no one knows what is going on, is he lining his pockets before he is removed? sounds like it. Vicki and the rest better start looking for someone to moniter the next election, so we won;t have the same thing that has happened for the last donna years.

So very true nanna, I will step up to see that MY children have something left. Chairman is so worried about his grandsons not having alcohol there are more people in this tribe that do not see a cent from the tribe. Chairmans grandsons broke into very bar in Lyman Co. They will get booze no matter what. This is how 9, 10, 11 year old kids get their booze they STEAL IT.

Mr. Jandreau hasn't done much for the people of the LB Tribe in a very long time. Somewhere along the way greed crept in. Not only for himself but it has infested his family and followers. The chairmans salary is outrageous as is, then he has use of a new vehicle and phone all paid for by the tribe not only him but his wife also. With their combined salaries they should be paying for these things themselves. Also everyone one of their kids have an 80 hr job but don't have to show up to get paid. If you verbalize your dissatisfaction or difference of opinion against Mike, his kids and grandskids go to those that are voicing their opinions, as is their right and these people get threated and harressed by his goon kid & grandkids squad. The chairman also has a gambling problem, where does the thousands of dollars that he gambles with come from, you know where, from the tribal monies that belong to everyone, not just him, to use as his own personal bank to take when and where he wants too. He has been stealing the peoples money for years and has nothing to show for it, because he's gambled it away.

I hear they finally got rid that parasite Foudrey. He was sorry excuse for a Manager. Now if they will will get rid of the other non-member directors. Honeywell, Umburger, the 2 old grey mares linda and claire, they control a large pot o money, Nyals, greg miller, Joe abdo, what the hell he can't run patient transport right and now he's head of ambulance and not even a emt? And what about the new Education stupident, he was a sorry excuse for a principal and now hes head of both schools. Brulies school are becoming more for special needs students because all the smart ones go to lyman or st. joes. It doesn't pay to get a education and come back to brule if you are a tribal member, mike likes his whites and nonmembers who will dance to his tune.

i hear the tribes lawyer is sending notices to certain people about selling booze. well, they best send one to Little Bend lodge, everyone knows they sell beer to their hunters. Oh yeah, Mike only likes to pick on women and olders. I think Patti Whoreneau should still be charged for selling beer on school grounds. I hope mikes people are happy with all the car wrecks with people people driving off the rez forbeer.

first of all drinking is a choice and to be honest our so called leaders have done very little to allow tribal members choice about anything. If you look around Lower Brule you see a breath taking landscape that is overtaken by crime, hate and proverty so for those who choose alcohol, I say it's not your fault, you have allowed people to make you feel you don't deserve something more in life. What is your fault, you don't really want to get help and straighten your life up for yourself, your children or your grand children. Do you think the tribal council or 90% of those working for the tribe really care if you sober up or not? They are only concerned about the almighty dollar and what it will do for them personally. If people can drink responsibly then they shouldn't be looked upon negatively because they can. It's a choice... People who want to drink or need to drink will do so regarless of the law, so what did the chairman really do for his people? Do you wanted to live with this oppression and sadness for ever? It's time to stop pointing fingers, It's time for the people to say enough is a enough before it's to late to turn this place around.

I came home thinking I could use my skills and work for the tribe but I found that nothing had changed since the last time I moved home 12 years before. If you belong to a family that doesnt agree with the chairman and his cronies, you get nothing. Preference criteria and even qualifications on the tribal employment application are both a farce. The truth is that you only get jobs if you are related to the chairman or the council and are willing to kiss ass and look the other way. Qualifications do not come into play at all. They dont want smart qualified members to have those jobs because they are afraid that those people will become wise to their treachery and scams and just might do something about it! I was promised a sit down by the chairman himself right before the last election. Election time is around the corner and I am still waiting Mike. To the rest of the enrolled people of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, You are not obligated in any way to vote for the chairman nor hie cronies when they hand out their twenty dollar bills before election. Voting is anonymous. Vote this non-caring and non-trustworthy council out!When we do that then we can reclaim the jobs currently held by whites and nonqualified members of the councils families as well. Why is the Chairmans brother still collecting a paycheck from Prison? Is his son gonna be collecting one too for being a sex offender as well when he goes?

Oh Billy Jack we all know you go to the bars in your work pick up, so watch yer self, you will be called in to the bia cops on your way home for dui.

What next from Mikes family? Fighting at the casino, hitting a elder, throwing a child to the ground, getting free cards for bingo, what this family will stoop down to? We need security to protect the members from this bunch of nuts. Taking all the good NAHA, making sure their family is getting health insurance and retirement benefits at work and all they are is janitors and gopher indians. Well members who don't agree with them are not getting these. The white people who work for the tribe have more rights than members.

OH yes, and that goes for Gayle Ziegler too. She is a council member going around shooting her outh off having her grandsons commit violent act on people. Calling people names, did she forget about the baby she had from her first cousin, Sonny Arcorn. Does she not see what her own daughter's gambling has done to her family, or her own daughter driving around frantically buying people's prescription drugs? Look what her daughter did to her son and her grandchildren? Pam driving around stealing all she can, using them to fight her fights. Nothing was done to Cheyenne when he broke into the station at Reliance. Nothing was done to Zack when he sugared allof those people's gas tanks. Nothing was done to Billy when he molested all of those children for years and years. Nothing was done to Janice when she caused her babies death. They should throw Patti in jail for selling beer, but they should throw all of you in for bootlegging. What is your private life like, always on pills, crying around chasing your bad checks, lying just to make yourselves look good. What are any of you doing to make Lower Brule better. I am not from there thank god, because your whole reservation is a disgrace to the rst of us real indians. You all need to grow up. You are all unsika!

Pam Flute started that whole thing, there was no baby involved, nobody gets free cards, what is this about bingo. Pam sat in Gayles car after she started that whole fight and when tihe cops came she jumped out and came over there. What are you worried about NAHA for go down and get it, it is a shame to see it waster like that. Quit taking all of those pills you buy from us and start making a difference

the brule oyate majority vote should get off their ass kissing butts and vote in new blood, real leaders that speak lakota, have served in the military, college educated not even one of them can meet this basic criteria. As it stands now and ever since MBJ has ruled the REZ your only chance for employment, housing, or any kind of tribal benefit is if you are related, a drugie, no mind bought and paid for ass kissing fool, or a felon, felon yes felon. Look what power he gives to Mike Standing Soldier a convicted rapist and no one will hire him, his own rez ran him out, or yea I almost forgot a white man the biggest of all ass kissers. There is no promotion or encouragement of education or honoring of vets because he (MBJ) does not know what they are, ther are none in his family or ring of ass kissers.As a matter of fact the Tribe has dishonored vets by not standing on the veteran preference or Indian preference in hiring practices. This alone gives LB a bad name. If anyone thinks MBJ is doing such a great job then why are they so secrative of the Tribal audit? How many years are we in hock to the banks on our land? What are our assests? What do we owe, what do we own? White man controls it all. Do we have any savings or reserve funds for emergency. Why are some jobs just granted and others advertised. What does the PPP say why isn't it being followed? Wake up people and start voting in accountable reputable leader in office.

Another letter has come to the attention of the members of the LB Sioux Tribe giving details of just some of the Chairman's income. My god the greed that this man has. He gets paid on top of his huge salary to get contracts & jobs for different entities of the tribe. Isn't this is job? Why should he get extra for what is his job, just plain greed. He has 3 extra people working for him at the tribal office. Red Langdeau, position unknown, receiving the salary he had when he was on council, no one knows what he does, Patty Gourneau moore sazue mendoza, position, kiss ass to chairman, known habitual liar & thief, now in the position to take monies, and is whenever & whereever she wants with Mike's blessing because she shares with him, someone has to help him steal money for their own gambling addictions, patty is at the casino all day long but still gets paid from her job. So basically she is getting paid to steal from the people. Then there is emma, she was caught stealing checks from the tribe to support her meth habit and everything was swept under the rug because she is Mike's sisterinlaw, now she is getting paid to steal again. This is all under Mike, he has to have people that he controls near him to help him. So you see the people who he surrounds himself with, that is just what he is too, a liar and a thief, biggest thief. call the authorities i dare them to go to the LB Sioux Tribe & look into the thievery and imbezzelment going on under these people.
Say it to my face and prove it you chicken shit, you can hide behond your computer. Learn how to spell too. Don't worry about me and my habit, you should worry about yourself and your own.
