Pala Casino Resort & Spa, which ushered in the era of luxury Las Vegas-style hotels in San Diego, will break ground today on a $170-million expansion and extensive remodel.

The current hotel and casino interior will also undergo a significant update.

$ one hundred and seventy million dollar rebuild, I wonder how much will be given back to Robert Smith and crew for picking this contactor for the deal?
Why is it so hush hush on the contractors name?
No signs at the Casino area that states who the construction company is or who is doing the work.

Standard Smith practice is to inflate the price of the project and split the increase with the contractor. The problem with a project funded by loan means the investors will have to share too. Now why can't the FBI investigate this shady deal? There have been no details released at all except for the price tag. Very suspicious indeed.
