North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee has hurt my feelings. I write this with Kleenex nearby, as I may burst into tears at any time. But I must sadly inform you, dear readers, that the mayor of Nevada’s near-bankrupt city will not come on my program. I am not angry. I am not surprised. I am devastated. So I write this not out of spite but to let you know Lee apparently is nurturing a grudge against lil ole me for, apparently, referring to him as a “backbencher” when he was in the Legislature (he was,...
My love/hate relationship with the two Las Vegas newspapers is not a secret. I worked for the Review-Journal and the Sun and have fond and distasteful memories of both. But I am more and more concerned about their future amid recent developments. I come not to snipe – as promised – but to report news of uncertainty afflicting both newsrooms. First, the Sun. Or is it (see photo) “The Sunday”? As first reported by Desert Companion’s Andrew Kiraly, a prototype for a new Sunday magazine is being...
The Southern Nevada Water Authority Las Vegas Valley Water District chose John Entsminger this morning to replace his boss, Pat Mulroy. That was expected. What wasn't expected was a kerfuffle about the Open Meeting Law, which threatened to derail the choice and perhaps put a previous water rate vote in jeopardy, too. But the attorney general's office apparently agreed with the water district's lawyer that the vote was valid, and he sent out a letter (see below) confirming the validity of the...
New years are times for promises and hopes. But they are also a chance to leave in the past what should remain there, to shelve old things that have outgrown their usefulness, to let harmful habits recede in the rear view mirror. Hence, I begin what I hope will be an annual ritual of finding Things I Will Retire in the New Year. The five for 2014 (I’m sure others will suggest there are plenty more things I could discard): ►“Gov. Sunny” The point has been made. Gov. Brian Sandoval is...
Jim Messina, the man who helmed the Obama campaign, has been tapped by the American Gaming Association to push for online gaming, which AGA member Sheldon Adelson, who is not exactly the president's number one fan, opposes. Messina's consultant gig is part of a significant staff shakeup by Geoff Freeman, the gaming organization's boss who took over last year for Frank Fahrenkopf. Freeman also has brought in House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's former deputy, John Murray, as a consultant, too, so...
