The EB of the Cherokees is in bed with Drake Enterprises in the "Broadband"/Optic Fiber to WNC deal. Plus, they were sold that the Airport extension would bring the "Elephants" to the Casino where they spent over Billion dollars, not realizing that the Repugs were destroying the economy, now they need rich gamblers. Again, a case of Indians getting snookered by rich white boys!

The $1.5 Million water line wouldn't have helped, never will, to put out a fuel fire. So, why do the Drake supporters really want the water line to run along his property to the airport? You fight fuel fires with foam but you have to be there under 1 minute, not possible! Did that new section cause the pilot to missjudge the runway?

Simple. So he can get tax paid water lines to his own private industrial park.
