UPDATE, 11/23/13: Leo Blenitsky, who heads the Vegas chapter of the Republican Jewish Coalition, defended hosting a birther by referring to him innocuously as an "author." His comment below speaks for itself, in all its grandeur and literacy: So Obama associating with convicted Terrorists and Racists Reverends is not relevant, but if someone has a popular best selling author as a speaker at their event that the left-wing hates then that is really bad! Do I understand the rules correctly...
This just went out, a letter to the community from Chancellor Dan Klaich and Regent Chair Kevin Page, but more a note of reassurance after the sudden announcement of UNLV President Neal Smatresk's departure: November 21, 2013 To the UNLV Community: Yesterday we all heard news that our President at UNLV would be taking another job. First, we want to congratulate the University of North Texas on securing a great leader and thank Neal and Debbie for seven outstanding years of service to UNLV,...
“Nevada Health Link would like to thank each family, individual and small business that has signed up for health insurance.

Brian Sandoval, the same day Nevada Health Link is Brian Sandoval. Brian Sandoval is Nevada Health Link....
Wynn Resorts, which has been absent from the Nevada Resort Association for years, is a lone wolf no more. I've confirmed that Steve Wynn's company has joined the pack, which includes Station Casinos, Boyd Gaming, Caesers Entertainment, MGM Resorts International and....Las Vegas Sands. “For decades, the Nevada Resort Association (NRA) has served as the voice of the gaming industry on issues of critical importance to our state," NRA boss Virginia Valentine said when I asked her. "Steve Wynn’s...
"UNLV President Neal Smatresk will stay on at the university" That was the headline in June when Smatresk signed a new four-year deal. Or was it four months? Today comes the news, first broken by the RJ's Steve Sebelius on Tuesday, that Smatresk is returning to Texas, assuming he is ratified by that state's regents next month as the president of North Texas. The why is simple: He has family there, wants to be closer to the kids and grandkids and his wife wanted him to leave, a knowledgeable...
A few days after Assembly Minority Leader Pat Hickey excoriated the party for its "circular firing squad" at a Washoe dinner, Chairman Michael McDonald has responded with his own blog post. The chairman, who is there despite an attempt by Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller to oust him, headlined his post: "Pat Hickey is right on some key points" Oh? Permit me to annotate: Dear Fellow Republican, At the Washoe Republican Party's annual dinner Monday night, Republican Assembly Minority...
Good morning, everyone. My pal Steve Sebelius’ tweet Tuesdayabout UNLV President Neal Smatresk possibly leaving for the University of North Texas sparked a blog post down there. Seems like an odd move for Smatresk, but the full explanation will come out, sooner or later. On another topic, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the target of ads – I saw one this morning – from Secure America Now. With 1979 shots of Frank Reynolds (!), the ads ask viewers to call Reid to tell him “not to weaken...
