Tribal chairman Raymond "Jake" ...

Tribal chairman Raymond "Jake" Parker told visiting Sen. Max Baucus last week that the bill could still grow.

"We're trying to look at creative ways to come up with more money," Parker told the Montana Democrat.
...
Parker said it was a 100-year storm, something the tribe couldn't have prepared for and may never see again.
...
Parker said the tribe would like the new clinic, which will be located near Stone Child College, to be 90,000 square feet, or about 50 percent larger than the previous one.
That's where he's seeking help from Baucus and Montana's delegation. Parker believes the tribe can build the clinic for the $18 million FEMA allocated for the project, but federal rules limit the tribe from constructing anything larger than what is being replaced.
The tribe still owes $4 million on the now unusable clinic, which was constructed for $12 million in 2004.
Parker hopes the federal government will take over that debt and clear the way for the new, larger center.

"We're trying to look at creative ways to come up with more money," Parker told the Montana Democrat. "We're going to be coming to you for a lot of help." Heavy rain in June washed out roads, wiped out water lines and flooded about 250 of the tribe's 900 homes. For weeks, the entire reservation was without running water. The Rocky Boy Health Care Center was destroyed when a hillside shifted and made the structure unstable. The Great Falls Tribune reported the tribe estimates constructing a new clinic will take three years and cost $18 million. Parker said it was a 100-year storm, something the tribe couldn't have prepared for and may never see again.

"Today is a special day," said Raymond "Jake" Parker, a U.S. Marine veteran and a member of the Chippewa Cree tribal council."This memorial was a long time coming. Š We have so many vets here and others still serving.This park is a way for us to honor our veterans' dedication and service to our country."Parker, who's also a member of the Rocky Boy Warriors Society veterans organization, said the tribe had discussed building some sort of a veterans memorial for more than 10 years but didn't get active with any real planning efforts until this year.Within the past few months, Parker said, design plans for a park came together and several community members donated time and labor to transform a parcel of swampy land across from the Rocky Boy Veterans Center into a veterans memorial park.

...
"This is a place for families to gather to remember loved ones past or say thank you to those veterans who are still serving," Parker said.

Raymond "Jake" Parker Jr. is out without bail to await sentencing for stealing from the Chippewa Cree Tribe at Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation, with the judge and both lawyers in the case agreeing that the former tribal council chair is not a flight risk.

Parker, who resigned as tribal council chair on Monday, pleaded guilty in federal District Court in Great Falls Tuesday to embezzling nearly $60,000 from the tribe by using a tribal credit card for his own expenses.
...
Dan Donovan of Great Falls, Parker's attorney, agreed and added that Parker had been cooperating with the authorities in the investigation since December.
...
By entering a guilty plea, Parker is admitting to the offense, Strong said.
"A guilty plea is a conviction just as if a jury had convicted you of a felony, " he said.
...
Strong said that Haddon is under no obligation to follow his own or the probation officer's guidelines, but noted that Parker has agreed not to appeal the sentence if it follows those guidelines.
...
Donovan said Parker also will not object to the restitution ordered up to the full $58,938.23 charged on the card between May 10, 2009, and Nov. 19, 2010.
...
I commend Mr. Parker for admitting his guilt, apologizing and accepting the sentence he's given. What he did was unacceptable and as humans, we screw up. He at least admits he screwed up!
...
Thank You Tim Leeds for the outstanding coverage of this disgraceful act by our ex chairman Raymond Jake Parker.
