The casino is open today for everyone until 5:00 p.m.
Since I was in town, I spend 10 minutes inside. The tobacco smoke bolts you over. The place is so packed with slots, hardly room for anything else. The sit-down eating place is dank, small and in one corner of the casino. You see no food or food handlers. Basically all you see are Spartan-looking tables. IMHO the sparse sandwich table area is depressing. More of a place for a quick uneventful sit for quick sandwich, then back to the bar or big room packed with wall-to-wall with slots.
If you eat healthy, be advised there are only meat sandwiches and other stuff. The salads I saw one individual picking at was not very appetizing looking…the presentation was awful looking. That tiny depressing area off to the side was a shock. If you have plans to try out the food, go to burger king or the great 29 Palms family Carousal restaurant. That’s where I met someone for lunch today. Gotta say staff and the food handlers are so very friendly and eager to please.
I am only reporting what I saw. I have stayed out of the casino’s business and the town supporting the casino. I have kept my views to myself, but concrete, cement, asphalt, rebar, building materials, massive parking lots shall never take the place of Indian land nestled up against the park.
What would the great great Nez Perce Chief Joseph (my hero) think, or Chief Seattle (who delivered one of the of greatest and eloquence orations in human history), Red Cloud (warrior extraordinaire who fought the white man greed and lies with a vengeance), Cochise (staged an uprising to resist intrusions by American), Crazy Horse (who led 1,500 Lakota and Cheyenne in a surprise attack against General George Crook’s force of 1,000, Geronimo (who defended his people against the encroachment of the US on their tribal lands), Sitting Bull (Lakota medicine man and holy man famous in both American and Native American history mostly for his major victory at the Battle of Little Bighorn against one evil bastard called Custer)? Would they all be puzzled or disappointed over the paving and encroachment upon the 460 acres of native next to JTNP?
Some money will trickle down to city hall and schools, but mostly money in the larger run will be sucked out of the community. Very depressing inside the casino.
Based on available information, a few years ago the 29 Palms Band of Indians consisted of 13 Tribe Indians.
Isn’t it time to bring the TPFD up to the level it was before they ran out of money. City Hall supports the casino (as they should) but in rhetoric only. They lack the courage to fund it — even though the city gets money back from the county from taxpayers for public safety. The 29 Palms Band of Mission Indians and their casino really needs a funded fire department to protect all of their patrons 24/7.
