Long ago Khaiyum realised that Larry Claunch was a paleface who spoke with a forked tongue but Larry’s buddy, Frank, who it seems can be bought for the price of a feather hat, stuck by the Casino Developer. Now the Snoqualmie Tribe, who have also been in business with Claunch, have also pulled the plug, after Claunch’s One Hundred Sands defaulted on a $US1.5million ($F2.73m) loan which was due to the tribe in February 2014. It seems he borrowed the money from them to hire the diggers and erect the signs on the various casino sites and also to make the default payments to Khaiyum. If Frank can’t see now he’s been taken for a ride by a con-man, he should resign and go back to fish on his new sea wall in Kiuva. Frank should also make sure the payments are returned to the Snoqualmie Tribe.
