Big Winners
By David J. Nelson III


January 31, 2006

I was just wondering why haven't the big winners been published out of our lil Bingo Machines down at the bingo hall. I am sure some in the other communities hear about them via phone or instant messenger but for those without ties, aren't they at all interested in what kind of money can be won here in Metlakatla?

The last big winner was a 10,000 dollar winner - before that a 27,000 dollar winner, 2 other 10,000 winners and 7,000 dollars. These Machines are tied into a network of machines down in the lower 48 so all the money doesn't come from the few machines they have in Metlakatla.

I always see how good other places were doing and was just wonder why no one in the other nearby towns have come over to try their luck just to get away. We have hotels and bed and breakfasts here as well as Restaurants and just all together friendly people.

All in all, I would like to see more people know about the Happiness that is being spread here in our little town.
