Another Monday, another paper off to the press. Four and a half years, 230 or so?
Got two calls today from Mille Lacs Band members curious about my blog post about Melanie Benjamin’s Alford plea. Apparently folks feel there’s a lack of information from the Band government. One guy was shocked that there’s apparently no restitution required in Benjamin’s sentence, so the Band is out that $50,000 or so.
I’ve also heard from three different sources now that the Messenger’s website is blocked on the computers at the Mille Lacs Band government center. I look forward to verification.
I’m hoping, as I know many Band members are, for some good candidates for Chief Executive.
