FRESNO – Attorneys for the Lewis/Ayala faction of the Chukchansi Tribe have asked U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence O'Neill to excuse them from participating in any further mandatory settlement conferences, stating that the discussions have reached an impasse "due solely to the Reid Tribal Council's intransigent focus on a political agenda that has nothing to do with reopening the casino."
The celebration begins at Bass Lake 5 p.m., and everyone is encouraged to be at The Pines Village by 6 p.m. as dozens of floats take part in the electric parade.
