“We’ve always had prostitution...There’s more now because of the casino,
I definitely think.” Rohnert Park Chief of Police Brian Masterson, November 16, 2014, commenting on the
one year anniversary of the opening of the Graton Casino in the Press Democrat.
From a resident of the Graton Casino area: "I asked my gardener to stop by and give me an estimate to trim my Palm tree. I also mentioned to him
that he has a different guy taking care of my yard now. He said that the one doing my yard was, after more than 20 years, no
longer employed by him. He is now living out of his truck and spends most of his time at the (Graton) casino.
I know that he started working fewer days over the last year or so and there were weeks when my yard got skipped but had no
idea the casino was the reason. I just thought I'd pass this along as another casualty of the casino."

SUPREME COURT DENIES PETITION, THIS SITE WILL CONTINUE: We have
just learned that the United States Supreme Court has denied our Petition. This marks the end of our legal challenge to the
Graton Casino. The Petition would have had more weight had it been brought by the State of California, but as we know, the
state doesn’t care.
We did achieve one very notable legal end, that being the recognition by the State Appeals
Court that jurisdiction must be transferred before California land is eligible for gambling operations conducted by a Native
American tribe. What is now very muddied is how that jurisdiction is transferred.
