It’s stupid that both Democrats and Republicans have tossed the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s new political reporter, Ramona Giwargis, out of two events she went to cover. How dumb or cowardly are these people who kick the press out? The losers are the readers. Once again we have to make sure that a disclaimer is clearly posted in this very important voice of our newspaper: We do not like Senator Dean Heller; we have not endorsed, and never will endorse, Senator Dean[…]
This week is Sunshine Week, March 11-17. The annual observation was created by the American Society of News (formerly Newspaper) Editors to spotlight the importance of public access to government information in a democratic republic, allowing citizens to be the watchdogs over their elected and appointed representatives. The sunshine label was derived from a quote by Justice Louis Brandeis, “Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light[…]
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.

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[…]
The Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper may have to add a couple of pages just to handle the disclaimers if its owner gets his fingerprints on any more news items. There were, count them, four separate disclaimers. In the front page story about President Trump being at a museum in Israel, there was a mention that the paper’s owner, Sheldon Adelson, and his wife were in the audience. So at the end of the piece there[…]
Photos by Sandy Zimmerman during the performance The beat, the “look” and the songs all brought back the “feeling” of seeing Prince as he was in all his glory. The audience’s enthusiastic emotional response proved Jason Tenner’s remarkable similarity to Prince. “Purple Reign” was filled with all of the excitement, glitter and pizzazz of Prince’s performances. Jason Tenner’s quick change of costumes added to the moments with each more glamorous than the next. The[…]
