MY COLUMN: Time for Democrats to take responsibility for lack of education plan, poor taxing choice for voters and Sandoval juggernaut
News item: State Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson is named “Legislator of the Year” by the "National Education Association’s Pacific Region Republican Educators Caucus.” So now we know what it takes to get Nevada Democrats angry and activated. Not the putrid state of education funding in Nevada leaving the state near the cellar. Not the devastating crisis in Early Language Learners zooming to nowhere in most Clark County schools. Not the imagination deficit in most of the approaches to...
Good morning, everyone. If you didn’t see it last night (Is there anyone out there who doesn’t watch “Ralston Reports every night?), we got out of our comfort zone and did a location shoot in North Las Vegas right before that Michael Brown rally. The link is below, but if you don’t get a chance, I should tell you that the sense of division may not be as raw as it was in 1992 but it’s palpable. A young man, Charles Ticer, told me of a confrontation with white police officers, and others talked...
Good morning, everyone. The comparison has been made already – the difference in law enforcement response in Ferguson and Bundyville. But Stephen Colbert really captured it last night. He mocked Bundy’s use of the word “Negro,” and then this, referring to the standoff in April: “By the way, black people, why can’t you be more like these guys? They dared the cops to shoot them and nothing happened. Just figure out whatever was different about them, and you’ll be fine.” Brutal. But how can he...
Good morning, everyone. As I have gotten older, I have started to see people I have covered, befriended, known start to pass away. Bob Faiss. Joe Dini. Bernie Anderson. More. I was surprised last night how choked up I got at news of the passing of one man I did not know well but certainly became acquainted with and grew to like: Victor Chaltiel. I had last seen Chaltiel and his family last year at an ADL dinner at which he was honored. He was filled with his usual enthusiasm and ebullience, so...

Trouble in business paradise? The Las Vegas Metro Chamber, which recently saw the departure of its veteran Carson City lobbyist Sam McMullen, now has lost its government affairs vice president. Chamber Chairwoman Kristin McMillan sent an email this morning announcing that McAnallen, who has been in the job for three years, is leaving for the city. McAnallen replaces John Lopez, the ex-John Ensign aide who was at the city for a cup of coffee before going to Cox Communications. The chamber...
