Here's what newly confirmed North Texas President Neal Smatresk sent to the campus community he is leaving: Dear Campus Community, Today I was appointed President-Elect of the University of North Texas. Debbie and I will be leaving UNLV in February to take up this new and exciting opportunity. Please know that UNLV will always have a very special place in our hearts- for the determination and grit of our community to make it through some of the worst budget cuts in the nation; for the...
After saying she would retire as Southern Nevada's water czar weeks ago but not setting a date, Pat Mulroy informed Clark County commissioners water authority board members Thursday that she will leave as of Feb. 6. Here's what she sent via email: Earlier this year I indicated to you and the rest of the Board that my intention was to retire from the position of General Manager of the Las Vegas Valley Water District in 2014. As I have been planning for the next phase of my life, it has become...
The SLS hotel/casino, which Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went out of his way to help, is represented by his son, Rory Reid. One day after The Washington Times reported that the majority leader had pushed Homeland Security officials to overrule a decision not to award visas to Asian investors in the SLS (where The Sahara once stood), I discovered that Reid's son was representing the owners at the same time this was occurring in 2012. The majority leader's office portrayed his intervention...
So Assemblyman Jim Wheeler says we should believe him about where he lives, despite a residency complaint filed with the state, because his girlfriend who does not reside in his district is hot. Or, as he put it to Ray Hagar of the Reno Gazette-Journal: “Have you ever seen my girlfriend? Well, if you had seen her, you’d spend the night up there, too." No wonder he sometimes appears on Caveman Radio. As a crack investigative journalist, I have discovered other things Wheeler, the man who says he...
After two months of waiting for answers to a complaint filed against Jim Wheeler, the secretary of state's office has sent the assemblyman a letter demanding answers and threatening to involve the attorney general. In the missive, which is attached here, elections Deputy Scott Gilles says he last spoke to Wheeler on Oct. 8 about a complaint, sicne amended, by ex-Assemblyman Kelly Kite, whom Wheeler replaced. Gilles wrote Wheeler "indicated you would follow up" on allegations of unreported...
Why would anyone in Nevada care about a hearing Tuesday before the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade? Because the subject matter is "The State of Online Gaming." An internal House Energy panel memo says this will come up: Is Federal legislation necessary to address the developing patchwork of State regulations? How effective is enforcement of remote gaming in jurisdictions that have legalized it? How are States preparing to deal with the issue? Majority...
In case anyone hasn't received the message yet -- and I have no idea who you are -- state Sen. Mark Hutchison is The Chosen One for lieutenant governor. In his latest fundraiser, a Dec. 18 event hyped today via email by his campaign, Hutchison has the three top Republicans, gaming types and the widow of a man who was very close to Hutchison's opponent, Sue Lowden. Yes, Dale Raggio, whose husband, Bill, once was on the board of Lowden's casino company and mentored her as a state senator, is on...
