Gambling On The Other Side of State Line

As reported by the San Bernardino Sun News: "A committee pushing for an Indian casino plans to start circulating a petition Saturday to place the issue on the Nov. 8 ballot. Former Councilman Manuel Gurule said the Committee for 2,800 New Jobs will need fewer than 500 signatures of registered voters to place an initiative on the ballot. It is estimated that a resort casino would bring at least 2,800 new jobs to Barstow and another 500 construction jobs. The resort also would generate about $5 million in new revenue for the city.

The City Council has entered into a municipal services agreement with the Los Coyotes Band of Mission Indians of San Diego County to operate a tribal casino in west Barstow.

Since then, two other tribes have entered the picture. They are the Chemehuevi tribe from San Bernardino County and the Big Lagoon Rancheria tribe from Humboldt County.
