What's been going on in Las Vegas

It's hard this time of year with everything going on to keep up on all of my projects. Just to update you all on what has been happening here in Las Vegas, there is plenty of news. Back in October I reported the capture of Chester Styles. This scumbag was back in court today, rejecting a plea offering. I guess he's hoping to make the victim have to testify, along why he would when there is VIDEO of him molesting her is beyond me. May he ROT IN JAIL.

In keeping with the spirit of the holidays, some scumbag is going around local neighbors posing as an employee of the Community Outreach Ministries that operates a local thrift store (zip 89110), selling needed merchandise at prices everyone can afford. The ministry also accepts donated automobiles, and there is where our scumbag comes in. So far its estimated that he has scammed eight cars from caring, giving individuals in the valley. If you are approached by this individual, don't try to apprehend him, simply contact Metro. More importantly, if you have items you wish to donate please contact them directly.

Local residents of the Sundance Village Apartments were forced to evacuate when one of the buildings caught fire earlier this afternoon. The blaze broke out about 2 pm. Thankfully no one was killed and the six residents evacuated have been moved to other vacant apartments in the complex.

In other Las Vegas real estate news, another condo complex has been cancelled, but its not what you think. The full story about the condo cancellation can be found on my other blog.

Another Las Vegas convention

jim boykin and meThis past meet I attended Pubcon again at the Las Vegas convention center. Sadly I felt that I learned a lot more last year and heard a lot of the same information. However, I did get to finally meet some people face to face. The person that I wanted to meet the most was Jim Boykin. I've been reading his blog for a while and wanted a chance to pick his brain. I attended a few sessions where he was a guest speaker and over the microphone he sounded exactly like William Peterson from CSI. After the sessions, I was able to talk to him privately and he was gracious enough to give me some pointers.

conferenceIt was a mixed bag of attendees. I met several people from Europe as well as some people that I had met at last year's conference. I was chatting with my friend Larry Hotz, a Denver Realtor about the changes from last year. We had both switched our web hosting from a large template provider to a more customized solution this year with less than the results we were hoping for. So we were hoping to pick up some good tips at the conference.

One of the things living in Las Vegas, you never know who you'll run into. On the last "official" day of the conference, I ran into David Caruso. He is launching an internet media company and was meeting some people there. He was gracious enough to stop for photos with attendees and was just about the nicest person you could meet. All in all, it was a good convention and I'll probably attend again next year.

Pictures with Santa

I'll be appearing again at PetSmart playing Santa. Last weekend I was at the PetSmart at Rainbow and US 95. This Sunday I'll be at the Silverado store from 11 am to 4 pm. The pictures are $9.95 or $8.95 if you have a PetSmart card and $5 of that goes to my favorite animal charity, Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary.

So bring the dog, the cat, bird, snake whatever in for a picture and get a great keepsake while helping out a deserving charity. See you there.
