Apache homelands are what is now called New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. We forced them into a reservation in Oklahoma.

No mention that cartons of cigarettes, depending on the brand, will cost around Twelve Dollars LESS there than off the Trust Land? Why is that?

Oh, I forgot. Smoking might cause cancer. So 'free' American citizens shouldn't be notified of available tax-free cigarettes.

And yet, and yet I wonder. Was Richardson elected by us New Mexicans why is so against us. What the heck with the casino, more jobs, better paying jobs, just let go and lets make something happen. But then think did he do the right think in the cacuss New Mexicans supported Hillary, he announced his support for Obama. Is Richardson really for New Mexicans, think about it.

Great news for Deming. Another reason to hate Richardson. He just wanted to flex his muscles after having to drop out of the Presidential race. I wrote him and told him he could have helped New Mexico if he would have sent those Troopers to the border where they are needed instead of wasting tax payer's money on harassing the Apaches. He should have welcomed them to Deming but he has never done anything for SW New Mexico, why start now!

Look at the time frame of this casino deal. Mr. Bill the moron had to do something "powerful" to show that he was still the "boss" in New Mexico! He was gone on the campaign trail for most of the year. Diane Denish has been acting Governor for months and months while he was out wasting time and money wishing that he could be president! Never heard a peep out of her opposing the casino in Luna county. There should be some kind of law about elected officials running for another office on our time! If any of us common people left our jobs to apply for another for months do you think that we would have a job when we came back with our tails between our legs?

Close to the border is my guess....esay to make run for it. Trust me these folks know that the way the legal system works currently, they would have been thrown in jail for a very long time. Between the two of them 6 grown children who have nothing to do with them and wish them their own place in hell.

That is horrible. I am glad you have informed the community about this people.

Abused at the hands of Ray and Dawn Herring. Raymond O'Dell Herring is a child molester, a man who married a woman with children to satisfy his needs. Dawn Elaine Helm Herring is a child rapist and molester. She did not protect her children from this predator and she continues to remain married to him. The California legal system is limited as to the charges which can be filed secondary to time limits. But we hope that their community will be on the lookout and not let their children or grandchildren have exposure to them. Raymond, comes across as a nice guy, congenial and he actually is a real pervert. Be careful and watchout.

Aren't we assuming a lot about people we don't know? Don't believe everything you read online.

No I am not assuming anything. I take information that may or may not be true and then make sure that a situation doesnt arise that will put someone that I know into a bad spot.

I dont believe everything I read, but when I see a sign that warns of trouble ahead, I sure as hell dont speed up.

To No Opinion,

I don't know if you're 1) A concerned citizen, 2)Friends of, or 3)Dawn and Ray Herring themselves but if you think it's not true have local police trace my ISP and they can get in contact with me!.If the laws in California were different I would put them behind bars(we grew up in California). I don't want anyone else being hurt and felt I owed it to your community to know who your neighbors were!!!

P.S. There should be some record with Deming police about this matter, I went through therapy 12-13 yrs ago and the therapist said by law she had to notify their local police that they're potential child molesters.

There is a website http://www.nmsexoffender.dps.state.nm.us/
There is no mention of the two people involved.

'Apache Homelands Grill? The "Apache Homelands" are at Fort Sill Oklahoma Apache Indian reservation"
after they were deported (including the Apache scouts who served the US Army) to the concentration camp at Fort Sill. But the Fort Sill Apaches were in southwest NM long before yours were. Welcome home, Fort Sill folks.
