The Las Vegas Review-Journal needs to make better use of its reporters; instead of attacking Oscar Goodman for keeping the Las Vegas casinos busy making money to be used within the community, the supposedly “largest newspaper” needs to keep a better eye on our government that is out of control, dig into why the Nevada System of Higher Education is spending half a million on one man who never stays put more than a few years in any job he ever had.
The articles that a trio of Las Vegas Review-Journal reporters have been publishing against two higher-up members of the Las Vegas Convention And Visitors Authority brought back memories of eighteen years ago when one of the subjects in those articles, Oscar Goodman, was running for Las Vegas Mayor. Coincidentally the same newspaper that attacked Oscar Goodman eighteen years ago by writing an editorial against his candidacy titled, “Any One But Oscar,” is the same newspaper that now is trying to smear[…]
The election result shows City Councilman Bob Beers losing last week’s city of Las Vegas elections, but in reality it was the voters who lost that election. Councilman Beers is probably the most qualified, the most dedicated elected official on that city council board, but perhaps he was made to believe by some of his team that he was not in real need of campaigning and he relaxed and believed at least one inept “spokesperson” that somehow had him wrapped around[…]

Jason Tenner’s quick change of costumes added to the moments with each more glamorous than the next. The[…]
Most members of the Las Vegas City Council have been pretty tight-lipped about a proposal to extend Republic Services monopoly franchise agreement for residential and commercial trash hauling an additional 15 years… Four years before the current contract expires… Which would be worth over $1 billion dollars… And would cut residents’ trash pickups from twice a week to once a week with no reduction in their monthly bill… And without putting the contract up[…]

This past week Nevada’s Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro upheld a sweeping protective order by a federal magistrate that seals documents and gags participants in the pending trial of Cliven Bundy, four of his sons and a dozen co-defendants on charges resulting from the April 2014 standoff at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch, because that information might be used[…]
