After he settled with the city of Henderson for a paltry sum, indicating the government was eager to release him, attorney Christopher Stephens, through his lawyers, lambasted what they called the "pulp fiction" of a lawsuit.
The statement, from the law firm of Campbell and Williams, is a brutal denunciation of Henderson's lawsuit against Stephens and others, including developer Chris Milam, who once promised to build a stadium near the "M" Resort.
A new analysis of the Las Vegas housing market cites the "unintended consequences" of Nevada's construction defect statute as inhibiting the recovery of a slowly mending sector.
The study, which I am told was given to lawmakers and I have attached here, was done by UNLV economist Stephen Brown for the Southern Nevada Homebuilders Association, which has long sought reforms to Chapter 40 of Nevada law.
Brown's general conlcusion:
I told you Thursday about that ill-fated NRA meeting in which the gamers were not buying the UNLV NOW financing proposal for that new stadium.
That's an intangible problem for Don Snyder & Co. that could become tangible. But, I have learned, the stadium has another, more immediate problem: It can't be built the way it has been designed.
On this Valentine’s Day, with apologies to my wife, I must send greetings to my longest love affair.
If you had told me two years ago that Steven Horsford's first bill as a congressman would have the word "Yerington" in it, I would have laughed out loud.
But after that district was drawn to include seven counties, and Horsford discovered the wonders of the rurals during his campaign, maybe it's not that surprising.
And he has just introduced this bill, and I have attached it here.
Somewhere, the Dini family is smiling.
You may have read this story in the morning "newspaper" about MGM Resorts curbing its enthusiasm for the UNLV stadium project.
And now, as Paul Harvey used to say, for the rest of the story:
This arrived at 12:10 AM on Thursday from Las Vegas Constable John Bonaventura, sent to various media outlets as a defense one day after he was arrested for drunk driving.
I post it here, unedited, just as is, a remarkable piece of barely literate writing:
If anyone wants to know. Here is the TRUTH!
You just can't make this stuff up.
Former U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle, now searching for voter fraud across this great land, has posted her reaction to the inauguration.
With memories of the failed gross receipts tax the industry pushed still fresh a decade later, the gaming industry's lobbying arm has announced it will "not take an active role or position" in the Carson City tax debate.
For now, at least.
It's called "Fix Education First," which would seem to imply another message:
"Fix education before you pour more money into it."
The ostensible goal of the PAC, according to its organizing documents: "Dedicated to improving education in Southern Nevada."
Maybe it's just about "fair share" for the South then?
Wonder how much money the chamber can raise.....
