The family of a 2-year-old boy who drowned in a canal June 15 on the San Pasqual Indian Reservation filed a $24-million lawsuit Thursday that charged the city of Escondido and the Vista Irrigation District with failing to maintain a fence through which the toddler crawled. Bani Reyes spent 10 minutes under water before a 16-year-old girl squeezed through a hole in the fence and grabbed him as he floated by. Paramedics tried to revive the toddler, who died 12 hours later.

When wildfires tore through here last month, 94-year-old Frances Jones escaped minutes before flames engulfed her home. Within days, San Pasqual's tribal council had cut her a check to help pay for food and clothing. Jones' neighbors, Lorraine and Natalia Orosco, lost their childhood home and two trailer-houses. But when they asked tribal officials for help, they were told they didn't qualify for the aid Jones received.

On the surface, there wouldn't seem to be a compelling reason to claim kinship to the San Pasqual Indians, who live on a dusty reservation in the dry hills above Valley Center, northeast of Escondido. The tribal chairwoman herself says that if she didn't already live there, she probably wouldn't move on the reservation, with drug trafficking, car thievery and rampant vandalism she says occurs there.

The San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians has announced plans for a $180-million casino and resort to be built with the help of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana. The casino will include a Mediterranean-style luxury resort overlooking Lake Wohlford, about six miles northeast of Escondido, and is expected to create about 1,600 jobs. The tribes want to build a 200-room hotel and villa, a spa, equestrian facilities, five restaurants and, eventually, an 18-hole golf course.

Taking a cue from similar--and successful--ventures in the Palm Springs area, the San Pasqual Indian band of Mission Indians has announced that 600 manufactured houses will be built on reservation land. The housing project northeast of Escondido will be the first on an Indian reservation in San Diego County. It is projected to generate $100 million in revenue--reflecting future, inflated dollars--for the Indians over the next 50 years.

On the surface, there wouldn't seem to be a compelling reason to claim kinship with the San Pasqual Indians, who live on a patchwork reservation in the dry, dusty hills above Valley Center, northeast of Escondido. The tribal chairwoman herself says that, if she didn't already live there, she probably wouldn't move onto the reservation, what with drug trafficking, car thievery and rampant vandalism she says occurs there.

In a cold drizzling rain at daylight 141 years ago, Brig. Gen. Stephen W. Kearny's mounted troops swooped down into the San Dieguito Valley near Lake Hodges to attack a smaller force of crack Mexican Californios lodged in an Indian village there. The result was disaster for the U.S. troops. In the bloodiest battle of the Mexican War, 22 American soldiers and one Mexican fighter were killed.
