The interview barely lasted a half-hour before Charlie Zobell, the Las Vegas Review-Journal's city editor, offered me the job covering the night police beat. “Wow,” I thought to myself, “I am either the greatest thing since sliced bread or they are desperate to find someone, anyone to take this job.” When I walked into the newsroom a couple of weeks later, I knew the answer. “So you’re the sucker they finally found,” one of my new colleagues snickered. That was 29 years ago today. I arrived as...
So who do you get to support you if you are not the anointed one? That's the question for lieutenant governor's hopeful Sue Lowden, who is running against state Sen. Mark Hutchison, Gov. Brian Sandoval's choice to be his wing man. The answer: Former legislative colleagues, a few governor-defying electeds, old pals and...Siegfried and Roy. Do they have a special trick to make anointments disappear? It's Old Vegas vs. everyone else? Sort of. Ex-state Sen. Mark James, a former ally of Lowden's in...
Good morning, everyone. Oct. 22, 1984. Twenty-nine years ago to the day, I started my career in Nevada journalism at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I was hired to be a night police reporter by Charlie Zobell, intent on cutting my teeth on a demanding beat, staying for two years max and wending my way back to the East Coast, eventually to the Gray Lady. And so I learned that old adage about life being what happens while you are making plans. So almost three decades later (who would have thought...
A pro-immigration reform group has poll results that indicate Reps. Joe Heck and Mark Amodei could benefit from backing a plan. That may not be surprising -- it's less so for Amodei in a heavily GOP district . But the crosstabs show wide support for a comprehensive approach. With all the usual caveats for an autodial poll -- and the samples actually skew slightly Republican -- Heck's favorable/unfavorable is not good: 41-45. This was taken, though, right at the height of anger over the...
After County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak got counsel Mary-Anne Miller to bolster his allegations about an arbitration award, the police union got a contrary view co-written by Miller's former boss, David Roger. Both opinions are posted here. UPDATE: Yes, Kathy Collins, who co-wrote the opinion with the ex-DA, is married to union boss Chris Collins.
