    'Hookers for Hillary' Announce the 'Benefits' They'll Be Offering to Clinton Supporters Hillary Clinton has her fair share of Hollywood and big name endorsers so far, but one group in Nevada has captured the attention of various news outlets. They are "Hookers 4 Hillary," and they are the Bunnies at Dennis Hof's Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Carson City, Nevada - a legal brothel. One of the employees, Caressa Kisses, 29, told The Huffington Post that she will be offering some benefits for Clinton supporters: "If you tell me you're caucusing or voting for Hillary, I will give you a free...

    CARSON CITY Brian and Valerie Wilson asked the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to approve a bill that would allow them to carry their loaded weapons and still serve as foster parents. In testimony to the committee in support of Assembly Bill 167, Wilson said the couples attempts to get a variance from a state regulation prohibiting the carrying of loaded weapons with foster children was denied. I am really heartbroken that the Department of Child and Family Services gave us this denial letter, Valerie Wilson said. I really want a family. Wilson said the Las Vegas couple always...

    Moving to quash a conservative GOP insurrection, Assembly Speaker-designee John Hambrick on Saturday harshly rebuked Assemblywoman Michelle Fiore, telling her to stop playing childish games and undermining him by insisting shes still Republican majority leader. Hambrick said in an email to Fiore that he had full authority as the elected leader of the Assembly Republican Caucus to remove her as majority leader and as chair of the Assembly Taxation Committee. He said he removed her last month for insubordination and for how shes handling a dispute with the Internal Revenue Service over unpaid payroll taxes for her home health care...

    CARSON CITY Perhaps nobody at the Legislature this year has been more insistent than Nevada Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis that the state must immediately put more money into Nevadas education system. And Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval could hardly have been more clear when he said he opposes and would veto Denis bill to increase payroll taxes for education. But Denis will make the case today that his payroll tax hike proposal is the best way to help Nevadas schools next school year. Noting that Nevada consistently ranks near the bottom of state-by-state education comparisons, the Las Vegas Democrat...

    CARSON, NV - Thelma Kessler is 86, her husband Stanley, 87. They've been married for 36 years, but now in the sunset of their lives they are allowed to see each other for just one hour a week and a court order gives others the power to file for their divorce. Thelma no longer has control of her husband's life. That's responsibility now rests with Carson City Public Guardian Debi Marzoline. After a series of court hearings, Stanley was removed from their home and put in a nursing home. There was an allegation Thelma was starving him and she was...

    The Mini-Golf Tax. The Iron Man Tax. The Burning Man Tax.

    The Legislatures attempt to craft an entertainment tax in 2003 read a little bit like the childrens story of the hen who couldnt persuade her barnyard animal friends to help her gather and grow grain for the winter. Lawmakers then considered a proposal by the Nevada Taxpayers Association to tax admissions to nearly every form of entertainment and recreation. But when it came time to write the bill, a common refrain was sounded by many targeted for the tax. Not I! said the movie theaters. Not I! said the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Not I! said the baseball parks, bowling...

    State employees will no longer have to take unpaid furlough days, starting in July 2014, Gov. Brian Sandoval said. The governors original budget had provided for decreasing furlough days from six to three per year for the next two years. An amended plan calls for three furlough days between July 1 and June 30, 2014, and no furlough days between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. That means state employees will work and collect pay for nine more days than they worked under the current, two-year state budget.

    A bipartisan committee of lawmakers voted Tuesday to recommend troubled Assemblyman Steven Brooks, D-North Las Vegas, be expelled from the Legislature. After meeting for nearly three hours behind closed doors, the somber committee members voted 6-to-1 to recommend expulsion. Assemblywoman Dina Neal, D-North Las Vegas, voted against the expulsion recommendation, saying she believes Brooks should be suspended, rather than expelled. The committees recommendation will go to the full Assembly for a vote as early as Wednesday. A two-thirds majority is needed to expel a member.

You need to buy a $380 ticket. Now, some Democratic legislative leaders are looking at the ticket proceeds and wondering why the state doesnt get a cut. Its how many people and they pay how much? Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis, D-Las Vegas, said. I definitely think we ought to look at that. Heres some quick math: 60,000 tickets sold at $380 a pop equals $22.8 million. Apply the states...

    CARSON CITY Gov. Brian Sandoval has said his administration has two top priorities: education and economic development. When it comes to education, Sandoval has used both the bully pulpit of his office and his budget to call for school choice, ending social promotion, expanding full-day kindergarten and improving funding for programs targeting English-language learners. But Sandoval and his administration have been largely silent on one key issue important to education advocates, school districts and Democrats: reining in class sizes. Thats not to say hes ignoring it completely.

Gerald Gardner, his chief of staff, said the governor has issued orders to agency heads to continue the reductions in the proposed 2014-15 budget. Gardner told the Nevada Appeal that Sandoval hasn't given up on efforts to undo the work furloughs, pay cuts, and suspension of merit and longevity pay imposed on state workers.

Wrencher, who complained his rights were violated when he was warned not to cry or show remorse during his trial. Wrencher was admonished by District Court Judge Michelle Leavitt not to shed tears or display emotion, and he maintains that prejudiced him before the jury. The court said Wrencher did not object at trial but raised the issue later.

    Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong has stated that the IHOP Shooter, Edwardo Sencion, used a Norinco Mak 90 that was illegally converted to fully automatic fire. The BATF has traced the history of the rifle to California, where it was sold five years ago. Sheriff Furlong said that the BATF told him that the rifle had been professionally converted to full auto fire. No information was given on the prior history of the pistol or the Romarm Cugir rifle that was found in the shooters vehicle. The Romarm Cugir rifle was commonly imported as the WASR-10, another semi automatic AK-47...

    A deadly shooting rampage at a Carson City IHOP restaurant last month has prompted a call for a review of Nevada's gun laws. Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman William Horne said it would be appropriate for lawmakers to consider changes to the state's gun regulations after a man with a history of mental illness shot 11 people with an assault weapon at the restaurant, killing three Nevada National Guard members and a civilian before killing himself.

    The story is almost old hat these days. Despite constant warnings to be careful what you post on Facebook, a disgruntled employee who is irritated at a boss, a customer or a co-worker, takes to the social networking site to vent some spleen and ends up getting disciplined or even fired. Its a fate that has befallen a North Carolina waitress at a pizza restaurant, a Philadelphia Eagles stadium worker and a group of airline workers in recent months. But what if its the boss who decides to use Facebook to complain about an employee?

    Sept. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Denny and Melanie Doyal got in line Saturday three hours before Sarah Palin's first solo campaign rally outside Alaska. They were among the latecomers. Terril Tungate was at a Carson City, Nevada, park by 10:30 a.m., seven hours before the Republican vice presidential nominee took the stage. When Palin finished, Tungate emerged from the throng clutching an autographed campaign sign. ``It was the bomb,'' the 52-year-old legal secretary shouted over the cheers. While she's long supported Republican presidential candidate John McCain, Tungate said, ``now it's 10 times better.'' (snip) After the speech, the Nevada crowd stuck...

    Move America Forwards merry band of caravaners are headed west on Interstate 80- to Sacramento after an inspiring gathering of patriots in Carson City, Nev.

Buzz Patterson, and Presidential candidate Duncan Hunter. Across the street in front of the office of Sen. Harry cut-and-run Reid were about 40 lefties who support surrender...

    Democrat Party Organizes Against Pro-Troop Tour Move America Forward is launching a "Fight for Victory Tour," which will set off tomorrow with a rally in Carson City, Nevada, and climax with a giant "Let Our Troops Win" rally in DC on September 15. With all the contentiousness in politics these days, its nice to see rallies in support of something that no American could oppose our troops' victory over Islamic terrorists in Iraq. But wait, I'm forgetting the Democrat Party, which is organizing counterrallies in an attempt to shout down those who support our troops. A small sampling: National...

    The Loft ^ | February 1, 2006 | Chuck Muth
    Bernabe Rivas of Carson City, Nevada, was busted for trafficking in methamphetamine, reports the Nevada Appeal. A felony. But rather than prosecute the illegal drug dealer on the felony charge, District Judge Bill Maddox sent him to drug courtover the objections of the drug court committee which reviews and approves such cases. By having his case heard in drug court, Rivas avoids the possibility of being convicted of a felony. Instead, he simply has to take frequent drug tests, keep a job and not get busted again for the next two years. Now heres the kicker The reason Judge Maddox...

    By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton This article is in response to the Missing in Action column from Maggie ONeill published in the Nevada Appeal on December 26th, 2005 entitled: Trust the Teachers. Obviously, this article was not posted online out of fear of rebuttal from bloggers such as myself. Well, Maggie, I would not want to deprive you of a parents insight or a fair review. However, you have magnanimously deprived Joe Enge of an unbiased review and instead have decided to push the Teachers Union party line so to speak Bravo! But at least, we can see where you stand. When...

    The Carson City, Nevada, school administrators are attempting to fire an award-winning history teacher, Joe Enge. Why should that matter to you? Ill combine his story with that of my 11th grade history teacher. Maybe youll agree this matters to everyone who cares about the future of America. In Carson City schools, administrators insist that history teachers begin teaching American history with the Civil War. Joe Enge, an 11th grade teacher there whos written two history books and has served on a statewide board on history teaching, disagrees. He begins at the beginning, teaching his students about the American Revolution,...

    Today's edition of the Review Journal says "Poll says Bush has Big Lead". This is the Mason Dickson poll from yesterday. That's great to read but long ago, I promised myself that I will get involved in the Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign here in Las Vegas. I have memories seared in my brain from Election 2000, when I lived in Boca Raton, Florida - Ground Zero. I've told countless people since then how I observed the evil, criminal corrupt Democrat Party attempt a coup during those 36 days. They are trying the same thing again here in Nevada....
