From Las Vegas City Life July 27, 2006

Pay to play
Henderson Mayor Jim Gibson took contributions from LandWell, and others, around the time of a critical vote.

The LandWell Company donated $5,000 to Gibson's campaign on Dec. 14, just one day after the Henderson City Council voted to push through a land annexation of old BMI property near downtown. (LandWell owns the remaining interests of land used for the World War II-era factory.) And it seems no coincidence that Real Homes, the local division of Centex Homes, donated $5,000 to Gibson on Dec. 29. Centex Homes is planning to build residences on the BMI property, once the contaminated soil has been cleaned up.

Now she is slowly using up her points at Stations at the restaurants-no more slot play. Maybe they need to hire a Gaughan to show them how to run a casino...

Marnell is really hoping he can steal customers from Green Valley Ranch down the street. Based on the locals complaints about the tightened slots and lesser comps at GVR, he may get lucky. Stations is in big trouble, and even with Greenspuns money at GVR, the future is shaky for both casinos. And that foolish blimp floating around the Valley sure won't make a difference....

Let's remember too that once you get a sales tax increase, it is almost always, and I mean always in place forever. As our economy tanks and tanks, you can be sure that your 1/4% increase will stay in effect. Forever. And despite the extreme economic downturn, you can be sure that you will also see cruisers parked in the back of PT's. Daily, nightly. Welcome to Redneck Hell...
