Facing new competition and a weak economy, Thunder Valley Casino has laid off 5 percent of its employees. The layoffs at Thunder Valley, long considered one of the most successful casinos in the country, affected fewer than 100 employees, a spokesman said Monday. All of those laid off were part-timers. "The current situation at Thunder Valley is essentially a reflection of the economy," said Doug Elmets, spokesman for the casino and its owner, the United Auburn Indian Community.
