Las Vegas Raiders StadiumFor those of you following the progress of the proposed Raiders Stadium in Las Vegas, it looks like it's almost a done deal. After a week of deliberation, Nevada Senate passed a deal that could clear the way.

The big hurdle was, of course, money. Everyone wanted the stadium, it would be great for Las Vegas, create hundreds of jobs and boost our tourism and convention industry, but with a $1.9 billion price tag, no one was jumping up to cover the cost. More specifically, a remaining $750 million that was proposed to be subsidized by public funding.

After the senate session last week, these were the terms that were agreed upon:

Las Vegas Sands Corp. Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson will contribute $650 million

Raiders will kick in $500 million

Oakland Raiders Las Vegas stadium renderingLooks like momentum is gathering for the Oakland Raiders to possibly make the move to Las Vegas in what could become the second big pro sports franchise for the gambling capital of the world.

While it’s still a long way off and nothing is finalized, the wheels are certainly in motion for the Raiders to join the NHL expansion franchise (which is still to be named) as Vegas’ two major sports teams. So far, the Raiders have applied to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to trademark the “Las Vegas Raiders” name. Also too, applications have been made for other items and merchandise for naming rights of the franchise in Vegas.

Raiders owner Mark Davis had originally planned on moving the Raiders from Oakland to Los Angeles, but the NFL denied the

After 60 years, the last remnants of the Riviera Hotel and Casino Towers were put to rest. The implosion took place at 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 16.

When it seems like all you hear are negative reports in the news, it's a refreshing change to read something positive. Kudos to Henderson couple, Brian and Jenny Bland, founders of Goodness Gracious Ministries who are trying to make a difference in the community. After months of renovations, they have converted an old food truck and given it a new purpose - to provide meals for the homeless and less fortunate.

Three years ago, this Henderson couple quit their full time jobs to devote their time to helping the homeless. Working out of various locations in Las Vegas Valley, the Blands prepare a healthy breakfast for people in the area. Armed with several volunteers they fill a plate with items such as pancakes, eggs, fruit and a bagel, for many this is
