    It is now raining pretty heavily in southern California, and
    hopefully the rain will put an end to (what is left of) the fires.

    The only time Cali ndns are news worthy are when there getting money , stealing money , or giving money and not giving to the rite party. We live with those that are in the muti-millionair homes, it seem's the media pays more attention to a million dollar ranch home than the double wide palace that we call home. We didn't choose to live on the rocky mountain top, we were placed there. It makes me feel good in my heart that the bank that is collecting donation's is owned by the Viejas band of Kumeyaai nation. Natives helping natives, and hats off to the Pechanga resort for taking in our people in there moment of despair.

    prayers to all people who live near the fires, and especially those who have lost homes and property.
    may the creator watch over you, give you strong hearts and clear minds,and give you strength to rebuild your lives and carry on.

    just a thought-is cali being punished for all the fighting in the political arena- recalls.

    how will new Gov. elect schwartzenagger help the native people at this time? good question.
    he promised to tax the ndn casinos,if any are lost he would have too look else where for $$$$$, so he will have to decide if he should help the ndns so he can still tax em, or he might feel now they don't have a way to make tax free $$$ so he might not bother helping em, well hope you cali natives casinos' are still standing as they are a big part of native economy.

    i also think all the rich people shouldn't be building houses out in the country anyway, its not what the creator intended the land for.

    i live on the colville rez in wash. and have been to so. cal-L.A.,S.D. areas its beautiful, reminded me of home.
    the only T.V. we get is direct T.V. and the only west coast stations are all from L.A. so we kind of keep up with all the news in cali, this is how we know of Gov elect's plans for your casinos. prayers again from our family to you bros & sistas in cali.

    > Disaster Fund Created for Tribes Devastated by Fires
    10/29/2003 - CALIFORNIA

    CALIFORNIA NATIONS INDIAN GAMING ASSOCIATION

    A disaster relief fund has been established for California tribes
    and
    tribal members victimized by devastating fires throughout Southern
    California. The fund is being established at the Borrego Springs Bank
    in La
    Mesa by the California Nations Indian Gaming Association.

    A number of tribes were particularly hard hit by the flames.

    Sixty-seven of 68 homes on the San Pasqual Band of Mission
    Indians
    reservation were destroyed and two people were reportedly killed when
    fire
    swept Valley Center.

    Forty homes and two small buildings were destroyed on the Barona
    Band
    of Mission Indians reservation near Lakeside. The tribal hall and
    daycare
    center were spared. All residents of the Barona Band of Mission Indians
    are
    safe and accounted for.

    Twenty homes were lost on the Rincon San LuiseƱo Band of Mission
    Indians reservation in Valley Center. Ninety-eight percent of the
    vegetation
    on the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians reservation near
    Patton
    was destroyed, leaving the hillside reservation subject to potentially
    devastating erosion. Half of the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians
    reservation
    near Alpine was burned, but fortunately no structures were destroyed.

    "Our hearts and prayers go out to these and other tribes that
    suffered
    so greatly in the fires," said Brenda Soulliere, chairwoman of the
    California Nations Indian Gaming Association.

    The fund is being established to provide immediate assistance to
    tribes directly impacted by the fires. It will be a permanent fund for
    future disasters.

    Persons wishing to contribute are asked to make checks out to:

    The Disaster Relief Fund for Tribes
    Borrego Springs Bank
    ATTN: Joanne McBride
    7777 Alvarado Road, Suite 114
    La Mesa, CA 91941

    Did any of you see the look on Arne's face when he 1st met with the media, on Monday. He had the look of sheer terror. The rest that came out of his mouth was pure acting, and bad acting at that. I know Gray Davis really srewed us in the a$$, but he pulled us thru major earthquakes. He doesn't need to follow a script or need dialoge coachs. Since Sat, Davis was working with the President, on declaring these counties disater area's. Arnold and wife didn't show there faces till Monday. :Yell What, were the fires not on his to list?HmmmMonday morning star acting like a govenor. Monday afternoon visit the busy firfighters. Monday early evening ask for help, along with his wife in tow. Plee for the community for basic needs. And lastly hide my wallet and check book.

    Yeah genie left a message on my machine on Tues. nite ,her and her man's family are doing fine. Yesturday I drove down to the north county to check on my mom and a few friends. There all doing ok, but there suffering from unhealthy air. The surrounding communities have air readings of 71 or 81 these are the ones that live along the coast. The city where I was at had sever warnings to stay indoors. This dumy ndn gurl was driving around town taking my mom shopping and a few other things too. I practically was there all day. I didn't get home till 8:30 pm, and thats when I got sick. The hubby had to take me to the emergency room for breathing problems. I'm such a dork. I was at a friends home earlier that day watching the news. All those in the unhealthy area's were supposed to breath thru a wet wash cloth. I feel sorry for all those that have to breath in that nasty stuff.It' a reading of how much toxins are in the air per pound? Well something like that. If there's anybody that can explain it better than I please post. Other than that . The San Diego comunity is just devastated. The local new's is so biast down there. It's hard to get info on the rez's down there. Yesturday I was reading bout the fatalities, it was so sad a majority were elderly that just collasped at the sight of there homes burning. The rest who waited to late to flee there homes. 5 of these were found laying along side there pet. A woman from Barona dead. Thats litterally all they had to say about her.
