California Casino Faces Shutdown

Posted: Updated:
COARSEGOLD, Calif. (AP) -- A Central California Native American casino faces a federal shutdown order over missing audits, some of which were due last year.

The National Indian Gaming Commission has informed the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino that it could be closed Oct. 27 if the missing audits are not submitted. 

The Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians -- owners of the casino in the Sierra foothills -- also faces fines of up to $100,000 per day dating back to April 30. The Fresno Bee reports Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1EtzHqa) that if those fines are fully assessed, they would equal $16 million.

The NIGC says casino officials have not filed financial statements and audits dating back to 2012.

A lawyer representing a tribal "unification council" says officials are preparing the audit documents to avert a closure.

    A northern Nevada man did not have symptoms of a heart attack. Rather, he felt a little tightness in his chest during high-intensity workouts and he suspected asthma. However, what he learned about his body might surprise you as much as it shocked him. Why Dane Hillyard says working out with a heart rate monitor likely saved his life.
