1. Last of the Mohegan's!. Lynn Malerba will be the first woman chief since 1723. The tribe now runs the Mohegan Sun Casino, one of the Worlds largest gambling and hotel facilities. It employes nearly 10,000 people. Her Mohegan name "Mutawi Mutahash" which means "Many Hearts". Ref: USA Today, 3/05/10 page 3A
  2. Workers for the Feds earn higher average salaries than private-sector workers. Ref: USA Today, 3/05-07/10 page 1A and 4A
  3. Schools moving to a four-day week. The teachers can work as many hours as they want. On the other extreem why don't the students just stay home and learn on a computer. This way you would only need one teacher in the software system and you could close all the schools. Ref: The Wall Street Journal, 3/08/10 page A1 and A4
  4. If you did not pay back your student loan 45 years ago because the education you recieved was not good enough to make you a living in this country, now the Feds are going to take it out of your Social Security benefits. The banks write off loans to third World countries, the courts write off loans in the civil system but the government can't make it up with the death rate!. Maybe we should die faster too, to save money. Ref: The Wall Street Journal, 3/08/10 page C1 and C8
  5. Good story on the geology of Little Falls and it's water aquifer capacities. Ref: Morrison County Record, 3/07/10 page 10

I don't know where you're getting your information from, but Lynn is not the first chief of the Mohegan tribe since 1723. The Mohegan Tribe has had standing chiefs from today going all the way back to the 1600s when the Chief Uncas separated from the Pequot Tribe and formed the Mohegan Tribe.

In the 20th century alone, the tribe had the following chiefs: Chief Henry Mathews / Wegun 1902-1903 Chief Lemuel Fielding / Occum 1903-1928 Chief Everett Fielding 1929-1935 Chief Julian Harris / Peegee Uncas 1935-1937 Chief Burrill Fielding / Matahga 1937-1952 Chief Harold A. Tantaquidgeon 1952-1970 Chief Courtland Fowler / Little Hatchet 1970-1989 And finally, Chief Ralph W. Sturges / G’tinemong 1992-2007

The tribe has gone without a chief since the passing of G'tinemong in 2007 to provide for an honorary mourning period, and allow for the council of elders to decide on who should follow such an important man, in a very important and respected position.

Perhaps you should do a little more research before adding statements such as these.
