In District 75: Waldron vs. Masiel WALDRON is the CLEAR CHOICE

There is too much corruption in challenger Andrew Masiel's history to risk giving him Power and Prestige

In District 75:  Waldron vs. Masiel WALDRON is the CLEAR CHOICE
Has he and the Democrats NO SHAME?

The man who led the fight to disenroll HUNDREDS of Native Americans descended from Manuela Miranda and Paulina Hunter from his own tribe, leaving them outcasts on their own reservation. He didn't have the decency to look out for his own people, recuse himself from sitting in judgement of his mother and aunt's decisions, or even show up on time to our appeals hearings, now wants OUR support and votes for congress against Marie Waldron?

Leap Partners with Pala for Free To Play Virtual Online Sports

News via

Leap to launch first US free-to-play virtual sports offering with Pala

Virtual sports specialist Leap Gaming is to launch a social variant of its core product in the US for Pala Interactive, the iGaming arm of the Pala Band of Mission Indians.

Last year it appointed Brett Calapp, founder of social gaming platform provider RocketFrog, as its chief social officer.

“I’m very excited about this new collaboration with Leap Gaming which will allow us to be one of the first platforms to launch virtual sports as a social gaming product in North America,” Calapp said of the new partnership.

“Leap’s virtual sports products are truly state of the art and provide a visually stunning player experience across all platforms. We look forward to start offering this premium content to our customers.”

The deal is one of the highest-profile to be signed by Leap and one of the first since iGaming-focused technology investment vehicle FastForward acquired a 41.15 per cent in the supplier.

“We are thrilled to partner up with Pala Interactive and provide our virtual sports through their growing footprint across North America,” Leap Gaming CEO Yariv Lissauer said.

“We believe the time is now right to introduce virtual sports also as a social gaming product and we therefore believe our suite will complement Pala Interactive’s gaming portfolio extremely well,” he explained. “We look forward to a long lasting and prosperous partnership.”

Woman and Man Arrested in Deadly Shooting of Man at Pala Reservation Home

Tyann Louise Allen, 30, faces a first-degree murder charge in the killing of Bradley Trujillo, 44, while Anthony Boles, 33, faces a count of accessory to the crime

By Monica Garske

A woman and man are now in custody in connection with the killing of a man found shot to death inside a garage of a home on the Pala Indian Reservation, officials confirmed Wednesday.

More than six months ago – on March 2 – Bradley Lynn Trujillo, 44, was found dead from gunshot wounds inside a home's garage in the 1300 block of Robles Way.


Victim:  Bradley Lynn Trujillo, age 44

Suspects:  Anthony James Boles, age 33 & Tyann Louise Allen, age 30

On the evening of March 2, 2016, Bradley Trujillo was found inside the garage of the home located at 1321 Robles Way on the Pala Indian Reservation, dead of apparent gunshot wounds. At that time, the home was occupied by Anthony Boles and Tyann Allen. Detectives from the San Diego Sheriff's Department Homicide Detail responded to the scene. The investigation established probable cause to arrest Boles and Allen for the murder of Trujillo. However, charges were not filed at that time and both Boles and Allen were released from custody.

Over the next several months, Sheriff's Homicide Detectives and members of the Sheriff's Crime Lab worked diligently to develop new leads and to collect and analyze additional evidence. The additional evidence allowed Sheriff's Homicide Detectives to request and receive arrest warrants for both Boles and Allen.

On Wednesday, September 7, the San Diego County Fugitive Task Force located Boles and Allen at a hotel in Temecula. Both were arrested for their outstanding warrants. Boles was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on a single count of being an accessory after the fact. Allen was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Facility on a single count of murder.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Homicide Detail at (858) 974- 2321/after hours at (858) 565-5200. You can also remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Pala Mentioned In National Law Review

There is a long article out titled:

Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community v. Jewell and Other Selected Cases: Indian Nations Law Update August

Here is an excerpt.   Click the link above if you want to read the whole article.

"In Aguayo v. Jewell, 2016 WL 3648465 (9th Cir. 2016), the Pala Band of Mission Indians (Tribe) amended its constitution in 1997 to authorize its Executive Committee to replace its existing Enrollment Ordinance with an ordinance governing “adoption, loss of membership, disenrollment, and future membership.” The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) approved the constitution in 2000. In 2009, the Executive Committee adopted a new enrollment ordinance giving itself the power to “reevaluate” an applicant based on “misrepresented or omitted facts that might have made him/ her ineligible for enrollment,” and remove such members from the rolls. The ordinance permitted an aggrieved person to appeal to the BIA’s regional director but also provided that the regional director could merely make a recommendation and that the Executive Committee would have ultimate authority over enrollment decisions. The Executive Committee determined that the blood quantum of Margarita Britten, a Pala Indian born in 1856, had incorrectly been listed as “full blood” but should have been listed as half- blood. The committee subsequently disenrolled over 150 of her descendants who could not satisfy the Tribe’s 1/16 blood requirement. Many of them appealed to the BIA regional director, but the regional director, and later the Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs (AS-IA), determined that BIA’s role was purely advisory under the Tribe’s constitution."
