In an interview with a rural newspaper, Sen. Dean Heller indicated he is unlikley, under any cricumstances, to support a background check bill. Here's what he said to The Ely Times: Among the most hotly debated topics across the nation is gun control. The Nevada legislature passed SB 221, which requires background checks on private gun sales. In the U.S. legislature, Heller voted against legislation that would have strengthened background checks in April. “I really wanted the onus of this...
Here are some of the statements about Barbara Vucanovich, the former congresswoman who passed away Monday at the age of 91: Her mentor, ex-Sen. Paul Laxalt: “It was with deep sadness that I learned of the passing of my dear friend, Barbara “Barbie” Vucanovich. She was an historic, trail-blazing figure in Nevada politics. Indeed, she was the first woman elected to represent Nevada in a federal office, and she was the first Nevadan to serve in a leadership position in the House of...
It's about as scientific as a "newspaper" poll, but here you go: Which book will sell more copies? "Being Oscar" 37% (31 votes) "The Anointed One" 29% (24 votes) "Son of a Gambling Man" 28% (23 votes) "The Camp That Didn't Fail" 4% (4 votes) Total votes: 82
That's the word from the state -- gaming taxes down 3 percent in May, win down less than 1 percent in April. You can see the full report, attached here, which shows that even though the North is way up, the Strip still drives the state.
You remember, before she was born, the clichés you ignored in the fog of anticipation – cherish every moment; it will go by in the blink of an eye. You remember how radiantly beautiful she was when she came into the world, even with the baby acne dotting her face, and how you scoffed at your own skepticism about love at first sight. You remember walking around at all hours of the night, rocking her to sleep, singing to her (this may have kept her up, I now believe), wondering why you sat in...
Just a thought, not that anyone would ever raise the issue in court. The specific section of the Constitution has been flouted before, but never more so than after midnight on Monday when legislative dithering, and nothing else, caused a special session. It was not an extraordinary event, by any definition. That adjective is important because here is what the Constitution says: ".... the Governor may, on extraordinary occasions, convene the Legislature by Proclamation and shall state to both...
That startling headline, coming as the only head of the American Gaming Association leaves the industry's DC lobbying arm, ran in a subscription-only publication called Gambling Compliance. The piece, written by former Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Tony Batt, describes as "striking" Fahrenkopf's comments about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and ex-Sen. Jon Kyl. The usuaally circumspect Fahrenkopf expressed frustration to Batt, saying, "I mean, we worked our tails off and to get to the...
