Fort Sill Apaches cease bingo at NM casino


KOB.com, Monday, October 05, 2009 at 5:51:16 PM

Fort Sill Apache Tribal Chairman Jeff Houser says the Oklahoma tribe has stopped offering paper bingo games at its southern New Mexico casino in an arrangement with the federal government. The National Indian Gaming Commission ordered the tribe in July to stop offering bingo games at the site between Deming and Las Cruces, and threatened the tribe with $25,000 fines for violations. The tribe, which began bingo games in April, offered them three days a week until Sept. 17.

Tribe gambles on lawsuit, ad campaign to secure casino's future


Las Cruces Sun-News, Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 11:53:43 AM

The Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma filed a motion in federal court Wednesday to counter a recent federal order that told the tribe to stop gaming at an Akela casino.

Also Wednesday, the tribe planned to launch a TV advertisement in the Albuquerque and Washington, D.C., markets, which asks President Barack Obama to keep the casino from being shut down.

Jeff Houser, chairman of the Fort Sill Apache Tribe, said the tribe's motion, filed in federal court in Oklahoma City, is aimed at forcing the gaming commission to recognize the terms of a 2007 legal settlement that the tribe believes gives it a legal basis for gaming.

Fort Sill Apache ordered to cease bingo games at Akela casino


Silver City Sun-News, Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 11:20:27 AM

The Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma on Tuesday received a notice of violation from the federal government for operating paper bingo at its Akela casino.

Philip Hogen, chairman of the National Indian Gaming Commission, in an eight-page document indicated there was no way to correct the violation and told the tribe to cease gaming at the site.

According to the notice, the tribe may also be issued a fine for the violation.

But Jeff Houser, chairman of the Fort Sill tribe, contended the legal argument Hogen used to back the notice of violation is flawed. Houser re-emphasized a claim long held by the tribe that it has a right to host bingo at the site and said the Fort Sill Apaches, at least for now, plan to move forward with bingo.

State police ready to block tribal gaming


Associated Press, Friday, February 29, 2008 at 8:17:46 AM

A phalanx of law enforcement officers massed Thursday near a budding high-stakes bingo parlor in southern New Mexico that Gov. Bill Richardson and federal officials say is an illegal casino.

Oklahoma's Fort Sill Apache Tribe built the bingo parlor on a 30-acre site along Interstate 10 in Akela, west of Las Cruces. The governor's office says bingo or any other gambling there would be illegal, and that the tribe had agreed not to conduct such operations there when the land was taken into federal trust in 2002.

Richardson ordered state police Wednesday to block access to the parlor if gambling was taking place, and officers were at the ready Thursday. About a dozen New Mexico State Police and Motor Transportation Division squad cars gathered at a large dirt lot near the parlor, Peter Olson, state Department of Public Safety spokesman, said in a telephone call from the scene.

“FRESNO, Calif.—Two impoverished California tribes are planning off-reservation casinos.

They would be the first in the state to have casinos off Indian reservations.

The San Francisco Chronicle says the 1,950-member North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians near Oakhurst wants to build a gambling hall north of Fresno.

The tribe says the casino will pump more than $100 million in wages and other revenue into the local economy each year.

The other tribe is the 800-member Enterprise Rancheria of Maidu Indians, near Oroville.

The tribe says the casino near Marysville would generate a $280 million annual boost to the local economy.

Gov. Jerry Brown approved the North Fork and Enterprise casino plans in August.

The Interior Department gave its tentative OK.

The casino proposals are now awaiting state Legislature approval.

IF CALIFORNIA CAN DO THIS IN MONTHS, WHY CAN'T NEW MEXICO DO THIS WITH THE INDIANS ON THEIR OWN RESERVATION LAND? SOMETHING IS STRANGE?”

“Stopped in for supper was very suprised no gaming but the food was excellent, the staff was great waited on us quick service open 24 hours / 7 days a week still trying to get the gaming license or what ever they need from governer of N. Mexico They sell tabacco but not able to do bingo or anyother gaming. They have TV for relaxing and eating and again we were treated with wonderful service and great food. The prices are reasonable and serving are plenty to fill you up but if you have room they have homemade deserts from pies, cakes and cookies.
Stop in you'll have a nice mean and no waiting with plenty of seating. Kids are welcome because no gaming. Good Luck with opening and building your hotel/casino. One happy visitor's opinion...”
