[Proposed sites in Elk Grove, Galt are on busy Highway 99 corridor]

A proposal to build Sacramento County’s first tribal casino is stirring up a debate that started when the state’s first American Indian bingo parlors opened in the 1980s: Will a new casino benefit the larger community or mainly enrich the tribe that runs it?

Today that question centers on Sacramento County and the cities of Galt, population 24,000, and Elk Grove, home to more than 160,000 residents.

In Memory of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

by Placerville Newswire / Feb 16, 2016 / comments

A lion on the United States Supreme Court has passed away.  Justice Scalia served our country for the past 30 years, having been appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. 

A generation of judges and lawyers grew in the profession following Justice Scalia's vision of our Constitution.  Not legislating from the bench and holding to the original intent of the founding fathers were fundamental tenets of Justice Scalia's understanding of the law.  

He will be greatly missed by our nation.

El Dorado County Judge Steven Bailey.
