The former head of the San Bernardino County Safety Employees Benefit Association (SEBA), who abruptly resigned as president earlier this year and retired last month to accept a position as head of security for Casino Morongo, has apparently returned to county service.

Sources say the Morongo Band of Mission Indians withdrew its offer of employment forcing William Abernathie to rescind his retirement and return to active employment with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The reason for the Morongo Tribal Governments decision has not been confirmed. But enquiring minds want to know.
