For the Record

Los Piños Restaurant in Lebec catered a delicious lunch for the Mountain Memories Emergency Preparedness meeting on Monday, Feb. 14, held at the Holiday Inn Express in Lebec. We apologize for accidentally naming another restaurant.

The Kawaiisu Tribe of Tejon’s Lawsuit against Tejon Mountain Village and others was reported in last week’s issue of The Mountain Enterprise to have been dismissed. Other newspapers have reported that as a fact. But George Garrigues of Lake of the Woods brought to our attention that Judge Oliver Wanger had extended plaintiff David Laughing Horse Robinson and the tribe an opportunity for an amended complaint. That was filed last week, with the assistance of attorneys Christopher K. King of Washington, D.C. and David R. Mugridge of Fresno. The complaint has many targets, including the Kawaiisu goal of becoming a fedearally recognized tribe. The complaint challenging the legality of the California Environmental Quality Act regarding certification of the Tejon Mountain Village environmental impact report by Kern County have been denied by the judge.

This is part of the February 25, 2011 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.
