OJ Pleads Not Guilty

OJ was back in court yesterday, along with 2 co-defendants. Simpson is facing 12 charges stemming from the alleged armed robbery and attempted kidnapping of a sport memorabilia dealer at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino earlier this year. The judge ruled that OJ did not have to stay in town until the trial.

OJ's co-defendants, Charles Ehrlich and Clarence Stewart, also entered not guilty pleas. The trial is set for April 7 for all three of the accused.

You have to love the holidays

With Christmas literally right around the corner, you would hope that more people would embrace the spirit of the holidays, regardless of your personal beliefs. What has happened to goodwill toward your fellow man? Just a few minutes ago I looked out my window and saw the Metro canine unit parked in front of my neighbor's house.

Apparently, a man was hiding in her backyard from the police. He had been shooting earlier up the street and had fled from police. Thankfully, my elderly neighbor was not home at the time. Unfortunately for him, we have a top notch police force with a great canine unit. He was quickly found and apprehended. First thing tomorrow I'm taking some food down to the Harmon substation and some treats for the dogs. I am truly thankful for the men, women and canine officers serving to keep us safe.

Vegas is going Green

In addition to this blog, I've started another real estate news blog as well. I've been reading Green Talk lately and it got me thinking about green projects here in Las Vegas. There have been a couple of high publicity green projects, like CityCenter and Verge, but when I did a little digging I found out some interesting things. The first post I did was titled: Why going Green makes dollars and sense and it delves into the benefits financially of going green in Nevada. The second was about Union Park getting into a LEED pilot program.

If you want to read about what you can do to be green in your everyday life, check out Anna's blog at Green Talk.

OJ to stand trial

In a not so surprising move, this past Wednesday Las Vegas judge Joe Bonaventure ordered OJ Simpson and two co-defendants to stand trial for the alleged robbing of a sports memorabilia dealer at the Palace Station hotel and casino on September 13th. The trial is set for November 28th. Will it turn into another televised media circus? A distinct possibility. Usbet.com has already posted odds on OJ and his trial.

If convicted, its quite possible that Simpson, age 60, would spend the rest of his life behind bars.

A new look

I've been planning to move Jacqui's site away from our old provider and with the help of some friends, that move has finally been made. The site is now using a CMS system, has an integrated blog, some new pages like the Boulder City condos and Solera at Stallion Mountain pages, articles, local rescue groups and floor plans for several developments.

I sincerely hope that I don't have to move it again any time soon. I want to thank Max Chirkov for his invaluable assistance. So please take a look. The design was done in browns since we live in the desert. Most of the photos will open up into larger images by clicking on them (including the floor plans). Hope you like it.
