We all have favorite stories we tell more than once. Stories that are good for a laugh or dropped jaw. Stories that are pure Vegas.
Oakey Center once was a happenin’ place where movers and shakers mixed with blue-collar types. It soon will be bulldozed to make way for Interstate 15 upgrades. New Image barber shop, a Las Vegas institution for 50 years, is preparing to move.
Despite promises from Channel 10 that “Nevada Week in Review” is not officially dead, the longtime public affairs show, off the air since summer 2015, won’t be back anytime soon. Vegas PBS doesn’t have the funding to re-launch or sustain it.
For more than 15 years, Anthony DiMaria has balanced acting and researching the horrendous murder of his uncle, Jay Sebring, by followers of Charles Manson 47 years ago.
The Henderson resident thought justice had been guaranteed after the madman behind her brother’s killing, Charles Manson, and four of his followers were sentenced to the death penalty. Then the unthinkable happened.
Thomas John Kummer became Jay Sebring about 1958 because he liked the name of the racetrack in Florida and his hair styling business was taking off.
How Henderson City Attorney Josh Reid can say that his proposed changes to the city’s ethics laws were not loosening them is laughable. Give me a break. Reid sought to soften the city’s ethics laws so more relatives of the mayor, the council and department heads could benefit by doing business with the city.

I am furious. My fury is not because I’ve been hacked three times on Facebook and some jackass is trying to exploit my friends.
“Seven Magic Mountains” is already a controversial piece of art. People love it or hate it before they’ve even seen it. I went south of the Las Vegas Valley, just off Interstate 15, to see it Sunday with two friends who both enjoy art. We loved it.
Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Clark County public defender, and the first man appointed to run the office, Richard Bryan, recently talked past and present with Phil Kohn, the man who leads it now.
Daniel Waqar, a Muslim and a man of peace, will speak to his fellow UNLV graduates at Saturday’s 2 p.m. commencement. His theme will be diversity, which is appropriate for a university where half the students are minorities.
