I didn't know non tribal members had the right to interfere in the affairs of the tribe.

You don't know a lot of things, but here on this blog, we know you are looking for any reason your pea brain can find to dampen any support for this project. So go back to your parents garage and take your nap.

If non tribal influence is allowed to have bearing on the way the SV tribe chooses to govern its own affairs it will set a precedent in court and be very bad news for the hegemony of all tribes.

Whose side are you on? I thought you were pro Native American.

I am, but, I also am for positive actions for the betterment of Lake County, and to see an effort that would bring two cultures there closer together, with respect for each other is the most important thing about this issue, weather or not the goal for a casino is reached.

If the casino were in Richmond the tribe would be bringing money into Lake County. If the casino were constructed here the tribe would be working against the interests of their fellow Native Americans who already have casinos here by way of competition and flooding the local gaming market.

Like Reno and Vagas are flooded. Competition is good for the consumer as well as offers a varity of creative marketing. It also brings jobs for both cultures in the county.

So your noble hopes for lake county is for it to become another Sin City? A magnet for the dregs?
Casinos prey on a community by offering a slim to none hope of financial gain. The house always wins.

You are in a consensus trance.

For most, it is a form of entertainment, no different then spending 100's of dollars to go to a concert that damages your hearing, or a to a location to watch 18 guys in uniforms chase and hit a ball. Ever price season tickets to the Raiders lately. Or you can pay $50.000 for a Bass boat. You can be complain all day long how others spend their money and it will do no good, whatsoever. Notice that I am taking it easy on you today, not asking how much you spend on 50 cal. ammo for your machine gun to wipe out and person of color that may step one foot on your parents property.

I don't object to native Americans having an industry that provides jobs but what about Soda Bay Road?

I live in the Rivieras and have seen heavy traffic when big stars would play at Konocti Harbor.

If a large operation like Cache Creek were to be put in the road simply could not support the traffic!

I don't think widening the road is an option either.

Stop this racist insanity. No more casinos. Not now...not ever. Racism is bad for the tribes, it is bad for the community, and it sets a horrible example for our children.

yes why not a casine ? it would bring money back t the area and then let it be like it used to be just add the casino to it would be great, what other casino is next to a lake and that the whole family can enjoy, fun fun fun kids at the lake old man at the card table and mom working her butt off to support the family at the bar good idea . just a better casino than the one in Middletown for they have no lake front to go to .

Tyka Booker says "It's like a landmark, it's been there forever". Maybe it's been around as long as you've been around, but certainly not "forever." Mt Konocti and the Clear Lake have been around forever, but Konocti Harbor Resort? Maybe since the early 1960's. A strange statement from a native person. Tourism and recreation is the future for Lake County, but not casinos. They suck the lifeblood from a community. Not as bad as big box chain stores, but bad for the whole.

The place is old someone should by it outright tear out all the old crap and make it a destination that people want to come too with or without gambling.
It's beyond patchwork. I would vote no on the Pomo's wanting to purchase at this time because it really does not answer the real issues with the place.

Agree. KHRS NEEDS to have the same concert venue. Casinos are a dime a dozen. I thought there KHRS was purchased several months ago, wasn't there a story in the RB? I could be wrong.

"It's what the world should be like, people working together to achieve something better than one individual can," Miller said.

What the f.......... do you mean. Ya, let's all get together. I'd rather just take care of myself thank-you than to achieve building a place to gamble.

I don't like the idea of a casino; I don't like the idea of losing a great concert venue for this county. I do like the fact that someone is doing something to bring jobs back to this county. 18.5% unemployment is too high and we are in dire straits.
Way to go, Matt! I appreciate your effort. More of us, myself included, need to stand up for jobs in this community.
