Drunk driving from casino

Letter to the editor 1/31/13 edition

January 31, 2013 

Dear Editor,

After last weeks' DUI accident involving a drunk woman who left Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino who struck and severely injured local physician John McBride, I feel compelled to do whatever I can to stop this casino from allowing their patrons from entering our roadways under the influence.

When Chukchansi first came to our town several years ago I was concerned about DUI accidents ocurring and have been careful when I see cars leaving that facility, especially in large numbers on the weekends. Now that one of our residents has been severely injured I am especially concerned. My heart and prayers go out for Dr. McBride's friends, family and coworkers.

Residents throughout Madera County -- especially those living in Coarsegold, Oakhurst and Bass Lake -- should not tolerate this.

Kathy Miller, Coarsegold
