Postscript
Towards a New Century

From the early days, when development was only "a hope and a determination," according to John James, Art, Gene and Sammy Welmas in the Tribal Council minutes, as the Tribe worked and brainstormed with Pro Plan to develop the Ten Year Plan, it was never intended that gaming would be all there is. That is why they took risks and supported the Nichols "tribe" in taking risks and pursuing any legal opportunity that seemed possible and appropriate. That spirit now lives in the young turks who followed and currently run the tribal entities.

Among other tribal projects, Colmac, a 48-megawatt biomass power plant that burns agricultural wastes, municipal wood residues and tree prunings, and waste from mills such as sawmills and pallet-making mills, is currently the only occupant of the Tribe's Mecca Heights Industrial Park. Colmac produces and sells to Southern California Edison enough electricity for 45,000 housing units.

Colmac will soon be joined by three additional environmentally safe operations. One will utilize what is known as a bioremediation process to reprocess and clean petroleum-contaminated soil. Another operation, a thermal desorber process, will remove hydrocarbon molecules from the soil. And a third operation will convert biosolids into usable soil amendments for use by the agriculture industry.

When all operations are on line, the Tribe will be able to share with the nation one of the few -- if not the only -- industrial parks fully devoted to industries solely created to clean the nation's environment.

A major expansion of the Bingo Palace and Casino is now under way, its size to be tripled to 116,000 square feet. In addition to enlarging its current operational space, the expansion will add another restaurant, a lounge for live entertainment, and banquet and meeting facilities.

Adjoining the Casino in an attractive setting will be two man-made lakes, a shell-amphitheater in a park-like setting, and a family entertainment complex that will include miniature golf, batting cages, a Ferris wheel, food shops and other
