This week I have several good things to write about and I am glad to share it with all of you, my readers, who always give me the opportunity to share my life experiences with them.
As you all know by now, every Wednesday I am doing a radio show with Miguel Barrientos on the Spanish radio station KRLV from 4 to 5 in the evening; well, last Wednesday Miguel surprised me with the honor of sharing the microphones of KRLV with a distinguished member of the Spanish media and a well known figure of our entire community, Chris Roman.
Roman is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the new MundoFox
television station that in a very short time has captured the news audience with a new schedule that no one else has, at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. and which is fast becoming a very important part of television time in many Spanish homes.
I know that I owe Chris Roman a lunch; last time we had lunch at The Palms inside Caesar Palace he took care of the bill, so next time would be my turn — if he ever finds time for lunch within his busy schedule now that he is the man behind MundoFox.
One of the things that makes MundoFox incredibly different is that its studios are inside the famous Boulevard Mall at 3680 South Maryland Parkway, and while they are on the air one can see the people walking around, shopping and having a great time.
It is almost like ABC News in the morning in New York where people can be seen freezing their “you know what” off in the winter time and waiving at the cameras from the street when it is not cold.
My next good experience of the week was the opportunity to welcome my new good friend of two days, Attorney Denise Gentile, who is running for judge in Family Court Department F.
During the hour-long radio show she had everyone in the office glued to their computers listening to her speak and they were all very impressed with her 23-year record as a family court attorney.
Denise Gentile has been an attorney in Clark County since 1991, and since then has been part of, connected to, or associated with, one of the most prestigious law firms before becoming owner of Denise Gentile Charter in 2010.
Before that, Denise Gentile had primarily practiced law with firms like Jolley, Urga, Wirth, Woodbury & Standish; The Dickerson Law Group, Dickerson Dickerson Consul & Poker, Ltd. Kent J. Dawson Chtd. and Dennis Sabbath & Associates, making her a truly family court attorney.
How many people do we know that will attach their name to comment on a
Only someone who has the opportunity to hire an attorney like Denise Gentile, like Dr. Varoujan Kostanian, who stated, “After a total fiasco with an attorney who I had the misfortune to hire initially, I was angry, desperate and depressed. Denise Gentile came highly recommended by a colleague.”
“From the very first interview, I’ve got my hope to get my life back and hand my worries to a highly trained, professional, and amazing human being. Patiently and skillfully guiding [me] though this very stressful time of divorce, Denise is this unusually warm and cordial professional woman, for her caliber. She is always available to talk, will get her job done on time. You are almost sure to get a great friend for life after using her services. I imagine her being a great family court judge –she has proven to be a very humane, smart, unbiased, patient, and fair professional.”
Denise was supposed to be in the studio for one hour but everyone that
was in the office that day was so impressed with her wonderful personality that she almost spent an extra two hours talking and shaking hands with everyone in the building. When Denise Gentile left the building, she left behind a group of happy constituents ready to vote for her.
Denise Gentile will be on Face The Tribune again on August 6 for a second appearance on the now popular radio show.
And then in the same day that Denise Gentile visited the office of the Las Vegas Tribune and radiotribune.com, a blast from the past took place when I had a surprise telephone call from my friend Steve Rushfield, who is enjoying a retired life and unfortunately had to take some time to travel to Florida, where his father-in-law is having some medical issues.
Steve and I have not talked for almost a year, and now, in a retirement mode he sounds healthy, peaceful and satisfied and I was happy to hear the voice of my good old friend and am looking forward to enjoying lunch with him whenever he visits me; after all he has lot of time on his hand as a retired man; I am the slave that doesn’t even have time to really go anywhere.
Another week like this and I will have to pinch myself to make sure that I am not dreaming because this has been a very satisfying week.
