State hopeful that it will prevail over tribe

It's now up to a federal judge to rule if the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) can offer gambling on its reservation, but state officials are still holding out hope that the decision will be in the commonwealth's favor.

A ruling Tuesday by U.S. District Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV did not consider the merits of a long-standing conflict between the tribe and the state over gaming but did deal a significant blow to the contention by Gov. Deval Patrick that the tribe's rights are governed by a 1983 land settlement with the state.

The tribe's Indian casino rights are a federal issue, Saylor ruled.

But on Wednesday, a Patrick spokeswoman said that Saylor's ruling is only about the venue.

Seneca Nation’s newest gaming facility opening Friday
By Darlene M. Donohue
July 03, 2014


CUBA —  Although portions of the Seneca Gaming and Entertainment’s latest project are still under development, a Seneca Nation of Indians official said construction will be complete in time for tomorrow morning’s grand opening of its newest gaming facility.

Dozens of construction crews were scrambling at the site located near Cuba Lake  Wednesday afternoon paving the parking lot and completing other exterior work around the 90-by 50-square foot facility, which will house the Seneca Nation’s fourth major gaming center.

“I know it looks like a mess over there right now, but we’ll be ready to open July 4 as planned,” Judy Farmer, Class II Gaming acting director, said Wednesday regarding construction being conducted on the portion of property located to the north of the Seneca One Stop on North Cuba Road near Cuba Lake. “We had some weather-related delays with the parking lot paving, but we’ll have crews working extended hours to address the remaining work.”

By WHITNEY RANDOLPH
JULY 2, 2014


HOGANSBURG— Police Chief Andrew Thomas, Supervising Officer Larry Edgeley and a civilian employee in the St. Regis Mohawk Tribal Police Department have been suspended indefinitely due to allegations of a discrepancy in a petty cash account.

The tribal Police Commission appointed Matthew Rourke as acting chief of police late last month.

Franklin County District Attorney Derek P. Champagne confirmed the suspensions and said his office has been talking with Mr. Rourke.

Tribal Communications Director Allyson Doctor would not comment.

Mohawk chiefs: "The most important thing is our land"
by David Sommerstein, in Akwesasne
Listen to this story

Jun 06, 2014


Mohawks in Akwesasne are trying to absorb the terms of a deal to end their historic land claim.

Last week, tribal chiefs signed a framework agreement with New York State and St. Lawrence County. It would allow the Mohawks to buy almost 5,000 acres of land and add the parcels to the reservation. In return, the Mohawks will pay a share of their casino revenue to New York. And St. Lawrence County and the towns of Massena and Brasher will share a payment of $4 million a year.

Talks are ongoing with Franklin County, where several thousand more acres are part of the 32-year-old land claim lawsuit.

The proposed settlement is huge news in Akwesasne. And it's very controversial. David Sommerstein and Martha Foley sort out why.

Catskills casino team pulls out of the running
June 5, 2014
by James M. Odato

 Citing the presence of muscular competitors for a casino license in Orange County, one of the four Sullivan County gaming team’s advised officials on Thursday of their decision to drop out of the field.

Trading Cove New York LLC, which has been proposing a large facility in the Town of Thompson, said with Orange County projects bidding for a license near the New York City market, it would not be able to build the kind of facility Sullivan County deserves. Trading Cove, which had been working for years as partners of the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, were proposing to work with the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans of Wisconsin at the Catskills project on 440 acres.
