Why isn't Hubbard in the same huddle as the Mescaleros and Sunland Park? It will most certainly cut into his profits(or are they "our" profits now?)
Could it be that he has his fingers in the pie with Gerald Peters-heavy weight friend of the gov? Could it be that Hubbard's lackey-Bruce Rimbo is in the mix?

Hubbard is way too quiet on this one. Maybe we should ask Ron Hanna what is going on? He likes to see himself in print?

if the Pueblos get their way in anthony that will quickly put an end to Ruidoso as you know it. Mescalero will be the first hit as a result fewer jobs more lay offs then with a higher unemployment rate no one will spend their pay checks at walmart the food n bev industry n shops in mid town will all loose business because no one will want to come to the area. you think hubbard leaving will hurt your sales if the tribe goes under so will everyone else one right after the other...

The Pueblos need to get to stepping. This is Apache territory. Back off. You have been warned.

So I guess all the folks in such a panic for the track will now want to give the Apaches our tax money too. Because it was all about the business we were told.

Oh, wait, Dee isn't an Indian is he. Never mind.

You mean "no big money" Hanna or "uphill fight" Hanna? I think he sells tropical forest lands in Arizona.

He owned a mortgage company with various locations in New Mexico and took it public. He is also a race horse owner.

Race horse owner? No, as per Mr. Hanna, there was no big money associated with the GRT bailout of Mr. Hubbard. Just a bunch of common folk getting together for a good cause. And the sky is not blue.

You said,"owned"...did he sell it and make big bucks? Can't imagine mortgage companies are doing real well now. What does the stock look like in this company? Thanks for the input....this guy seems to operate in the shadows?

Is the proposed casino on the Jemez Pueblo's land or did they find a spot that might make some money and say "Well, one of our ancestors may have actually walked there, we're not sure, but it's a good spot for a casino."?
In California, it is common practice for a tribe to exchange a parcel of land on their reservation for another parcel, which may be miles and miles away, in order to build.
I believe it is time to enact legislation for parity for all casinos, regardless of ownership. This legislation is not to penalize the indians or reward the non-native owners, it is about the taxpayers getting equal revenue rates from all casinos.
