    Depending on who you talk to, the reinterpretation of the Wire Act by the U.S. Justice Department will either be no problem for Nevada — or a big problem. Gaming industry legal experts have begun analyzing the effects of the new interpretation of a 23-page opinion issued Monday by Assistant Attorney General Steven Engel of the department’s Office of Legal Counsel. The 1961 Wire Act originally was intended to block sports betting across state lines through telephone and wire communications as a means of deterring organized crime.

    The U.S. Justice Department now says that all internet gambling is illegal.A November opinion made public Monday reversed a 2011 opinion on the Wire Act, which established the law as applicable to only sports betting. The DOJ claims that the 2011 opinion misinterpreted the statute and reinterprets the Wire Act to encompass all forms of gambling that crosses state boundaries. The opinion could have wide-reaching effects in states that sell lottery tickets online or where online gambling is legal. This number has increased in recent months following the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize sports betting in the U.S. last year....
  • ADOT spends $155M for Phoenix-to-Vegas highway link, but what about Tucson?

    Tucson.com ^ | September 10, 2018 | Joe Ferguson, the Arizona Daily Star
    The Arizona Department of Transportation continues to make plans for the fabled Interstate 11, announcing a $155 million investment into the stretch of highway from Phoenix to Las Vegas. The plans, for what is now known as U.S. 93, have been in the making for years, with several more to go. Meanwhile, the nerve-rattling, headache-inducing, traffic-clogged two-lane stretches from Tucson to Phoenix that are much of Interstate 10 aren’t getting much thought. The issue is that touted improvements to U.S. 93 are part of a larger plan to build a dedicated trade corridor between Mexico and Canada, running right through...

    SNIP “We were shooting some of this at the time of Harvey Weinstein,” Cohen explained about the interview. “We wanted to investigate how does someone like Harvey Weinstein get away with doing what…get away with criminality, essentially. And the network that surrounds him. We decided [we] would interview a concierge in Las Vegas.” Cohen shot the interview using the alter ego Gia Monaldo, the same persona he used to interview O.J. Simpson during the show’s season finale. Cohen taped the extreme interview with the Las Vegas concierge right after he shot his conversation with Simpson. The comedian as Gio told...

    The Boulder City Review ^ | August 15, 2018 | Celia Shortt Goodyear and Hali Bernstein Saylor
    A city with historic origins made history again when the first new federal interstate in almost 30 years opened in town. On Aug. 9, federal, state and local officials gathered at a scenic overlook on Interstate 11 in Boulder City to officially open the highway. “When we work (and) collaborate together, we reach great heights, like today,” said Mayor Rod Woodbury. The 15-mile stretch of I-11 runs from Henderson to the Hoover Dam and goes around Boulder City. It is expected to reduce travel times between those areas by as much as 30 minutes, according to the Nevada Department of...

    Sunday marks one year since the New York Times broke open a provocative secret when it reported about the existence of a long-term Pentagon study of UFOs - Unidentified Flying Objects. In the 12 months since then, the I-Team has unveiled new details about the study, which was based in Las Vegas. So, what comes next? And will 2019 bring the public closer to understanding what the government already knows? The I-Team's George Knapp sat down for an exclusive interview with an intelligence officer who chased flying saucers for the Pentagon. "When you say, something big is coming, what does...

    The Trump administration is officially banning bump-fire stocks, senior Justice Department officials told CNN Tuesday. Under a new federal rule, those who possess the devices, commonly known as bump stocks, will get 90 days to turn them in from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register, which is likely Friday, the officials said. Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people. President Donald Trump vowed to outlaw the devices soon after the tragedy, and some lawmakers on...

    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday was presented with the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award, which celebrates leaders “who have demonstrated a commitment to social change," the Associated Press reported. “I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but I’ve been on this hope kick for a while now. Even ran a couple of campaigns on it. Thank you for officially validating my hope credentials,” Obama said during his acceptance speech. “If we summon our best selves, we can inspire others to do the same. It’s easy to succumb to cynicism, the notion that hope is a...

    Open borders tour guides in Mexico illegally shepherding 1,500 Central Americans to the United States border declared victory this week. Mexican officials reportedly are offering humanitarian visas to avert a showdown. But the parade of immigration lawlessness marches on -- with reckless aiding and abetting by churches across the U.S. Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group in charge of the annual "migrant caravan," launched its effort during Holy Week by invoking the Stations of the Cross with biblical costumery and prop crosses. When they're not serving as human traffickers masquerading as human rights activists, these travel agents for amnesty busy themselves...

    Nevada Gov.-elect Steve Sisolak (D) is pushing to rename a Las Vegas airport after former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who is battling pancreatic cancer. Lawmakers in Nevada have been aiming to rename the McCarran International Airport after Reid, citing his prominence in the state's political history, as well as former Sen.

Sisolak said during a meeting on Tuesday that he intends to name the McCarren International Airport after Reid, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He also said...

    Jessica Turnbow was on mile 16 of her 19-mile training run for her first 26.2 at the Las Vegas Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon when a bee buzzed by her ear along the canal path in Chandler, Arizona. The canal paths were one of her favorite running routes, and she ran there often, even passing that spot just five minutes prior before she turned around to finish her run. The bee was persistent. Because of that distraction, and someone cutting grass nearby, she wasn’t able to see the swarm of bees around her. “Before I could even think, I had a...
