A little pain couldn’t dampen the spirits of east Las Vegas resident Randy Wagner on the morning of April 5. The local casino pit boss was in his 24th hour of golfing at TaylorMade Golf Experience to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The people behind Maverick Aviation Group, a local helicopter company, believe they have met the future of the industry — students from Rancho High School’s aviation maintenance class.
