The only thing that comes to mind about the City Council’s plan to do “city walks” to promote their campaigns what’s left of their city is that I hope they’re carrying plenty of insect repellent to keep away the midge attacks.
I’d take along some Mace or your favorite John Jay Lee autographed concealed-carry device, [...]
For more time than I like to think about, the old Monger has been struggling in Nevada’s crappy economy. This period is apparently now at an end. I have accepted a job out of state and will be leaving the future site of unincorporated Clark County called Titanic, Nevada–formerly known as North Las Vegas–currently in [...]
Anywhere but Norftown and you’d take a headline like the above as a mere metaphor. Not here.
Quite literally the city of North Las Vegas has decided to urinate on Clark County and the rest of Vegas Valley. It has started to release it’s lightly treated pee-water from it’s brand-new pee-water recycling plant into a [...]
Couple of Norftown news items coursing through the Internet tubes:
Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzales has ruled in favor of Toothless Wade Wagner and put a halt to the special election in Precinct 4036. (Sun) We’ll see if there is such a thing as an appeal in the wind, or if the recent resignation [...]
Putative North Las Vegas Mayor Shari Buck has officially given up on the city she helped to dismantle. The Mayor plans to sell off most city assets, including that unneeded monument to unbridled mayoral hubris, the new city hall. (RJ)
This follows the court-ordered coup by the police union to undermine the meager threads of [...]
North Las Vegas is going puppet mad! For months in the Ward 4 city council race, Richard Cherchio has been calling Wade “he is your dentist” Wagner a puppet to the police and firefighter unions for taking loads of their campaign contributions and promising (I’m guessing) to vote in lock step with the Mayor who [...]
Now I’m sure everybody in Nor’Town enjoyed the Las Vegas Sun’s repetition of the Unions vs. Richard Cherchio meme. Granted, we’ve all heard the local press repeat the same thing for the last five months, but, hey, how else do you make Norf’Town’s dull little off-off-year elections interesting?
Well, discussing actual issues that are or [...]
Yes, the Apocalypse has visited Nor’Town. Again.
Nor’Townie City Council recently voted to cut another 259 positions as the city faced, again, its ongoing hemorrhaging due to its profligacy in the past created by a boom town fantasy cooked up by short sighted developers and their oh, so accommodating politician pals. (Sun)
Naturally Mayor Buck [...]
Sounds sorta like the Colbert Report, don’t it?
Lynnette Curtis poked through the latest campaign finance reports to find the usual suspects. Station Casinos is up to its usual bundling scheme of slipping around the $10,000 limit by contributing from each of its properties as if they didn’t all have “Station” in the name.
The North Las Vegas Chamber of Horrors came out with the notice in support of Council Candidate Richard Cherchio:
After conducting thorough candidate interviews for the Ward 4 City Council seat, the North Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce has proudly put its endorsement behind incumbent City Councilman Richard Cherchio.
The North Las Vegas Chamber of [...]
