New rules at Lied

There has been significant personnel changes at the Lied shelter as well as new regulations. All of the animals are now going to be color coded for their status. Adoption fees range from a donation to $300.00, depending on the breed of the animal, how long its been at the shelter and its age.

Do not attempt to tune your television

We are in control. We are in control of the horizontal. The vertical...okay you get the point. A few days before the candle light vigil I was interviewed by Channel 3 news about the high rise market in Las Vegas. The interview was a follow up to coverage of a city council meeting in which Mayor Goodman was demanding some answers from some downtown high rise developers. Most of the projects downtown are showing signs of construction, with the noticeable exception of Club Renaissance and Sandhurst. The following night Jacqui was on Channel 3 about the issues at Lied shelter. Now back to anonymity.

Candle light Vigil at Lied

Today at 5:30 pm, there is going to be a candle light vigil for all of the animals that died at the Lied Shelter. It will be held at Freedom Park, located at Bonanza and Mojave (directly across the street from Lied). Participants are asked to use the Mojave entrance, bring candles, signs, etc to express your feelings about protecting our animals and making sure something like this doesn't happen again.

Please leave your pets at home. Distemper is an airborne disease and very contagious.

Brickwater condos in Las Vegas

When other developers are pulling the plug on their projects, the Noteware Development is charging full steam ahead. They have developed projects in Puerto Rico, Arizona and California. In building Brickwater condos, they are targeting East coast transplants with the first Las Vegas brick condominium building. The community will feature the typical luxury amenities, like a resort style pool, conference and meeting rooms, additional storage and covered parking.

The project will be built in two phases, with the first phase to be completed by early 2008. Brickwater will offer five floor plans, from one to three bedrooms and will be located south of the Las Vegas Outlet Mall, just one block from Las Vegas Boulevard.

Accountability at Lied

Someone needs to be held accountable at Lied. We say that we are the greatest nation on Earth, yet look at how we treat our animals. Dogs are said to be man's best friend, seems the dog is getting the short end of the stick. Proper measures to stop the spread of disease at Lied were not taken, as evidenced by the massive outbreak of parvo and distemper. The same thing happened at the Chicago shelter, however they were able to curtain the outbreak and only had to euthanize 87 dogs----in a much larger shelter than Lied. The city needs to step up, provide Lied with an empty building to hold new arrivals until the existing shelter can be sterilized and new equipment installed to prevent this from happening again. I don't want to hear about budget shortfalls or lack of money. Tourism here has not gone down---ever. The money is going someplace else and that also needs to stop. Whatever else, this is tarnishing the reputation of our city. Lets show the rest of the country that despite being nicknamed "sin city", we still care about the important things.

Disease outbreak at Lied

The Lied animal shelter, the only functioning shelter in Las Vegas, is suspending operations temporarily due to a disease outbreak among the dogs and cats. If you have recently adopted a cat or dog from there, its probable that they are showing signs of kennel cough. Your vet should prescribe anti-biotics that should help. In the past Lied animals suffered from a nasty strain of kennel cough that was sometimes fatal to the animal. Animals suffering from Kennel cough will generally have poor appetites, sneeze often, have running noses with greenish discharge. The effects usually last a couple of weeks. If you suspect your animal has kennel cough, take them to your vet not back to the shelter!

The animal foundation (lied) is asking for donations of clean blankets and towels. You may drop them off at the Lied shelter at 655 N Mojave.

Homebuyers: Watch Out for Bad Advice from Ignorant Reporters

CNN Reporter Stephen Gandel chose to bash REALTORS as greedy and “susceptible” to putting their interests above their client’s interests. Now the REALTOR's respond...
