Editor's Comments - I'm Back

Sorry I have neglected posting news on Roundhouse Talk. I have been ill quite a lot recently and even now am coming to you a hospital I am checked into as the change in weather cause me to become ill and set off a chain of other medical issues. But I am motivated to get bringing Indian Country news to you. I take great joy in searching for the Indian Country on matters that affect trust land issues such as surface, and oil gas leasing., as well as rights-of-ways on Indian trust lands. I post a lot of gaming issues because all gaming operations relate to the trust land. And everyone knows I like to give my opinion occasionally on various issues. Last week I received my 20,000 subscriber on Roundhouse Talk. Feels kind of nice to be able to bring trust land issues to to Indian folks. Thanks for your support.
