    For some eating bacon is a religious experience. But in Las Vegas, there’s a group dedicated to the worship of the cured pork.Founded in 2010, the United Church of Bacon now claims nearly 10,000 members worldwide and is based on beliefs that include its followers must love the smell of bacon. "...we say bacon is real therefore it’s our god." “Bacon is a way to bring people together, even if you are religious, there’s no discrimination. You can have a god before bacon,” said church founder and ex-Marine John Whiteside. “I like pigs in a blanket, that’s great, I like...

    CARSON CITY — Two longstanding pillars of organized labor — union membership and employee seniority — would face changes under a Nevada collective bargaining bill that addresses how local governments and unions do business together. The Assembly Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday heard Assembly Bill 182, which would allow government employees to quit their union membership whenever they wish. AB182, sponsored by Assemblyman Randy Kirner, R-Reno, also would allow local governments to look at employees beyond simply their seniority level when making layoffs. Kirner said the bill’s purpose falls in line with Nevada’s standing as a right-to-work state in...

    Think you know great sex? Nevada's famed Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel is on the prowl for official "quality" control testers who not only get paid to have sex with their prostitutes but to then evaluate their performance. "I'm looking for someone who's fun, has some personality and wants to have a good time," Dennis Hof, whose seven brothels make up 40% of North America's legal bordellos and starred in the hit HBO series "Cathouse," told the Daily News.

    A 4.8 magnitude earthquake (originally reported 5.4) shook Las Vegas and surrounding areas Friday morning causing roads and bridges to be closed. The quake went little-reported outside of local news (since there was at first glance minimum damage caused) but, since the quake's occurrence, something considerably more worrisome has occurred. In the 36 hours since the quake's occurrence, water levels at Lake Mead have plunged precipitously. While we know correlation is not causation, the 'coincidence' of an extreme loss in water levels occurring in the aftermath of one of the largest quakes in recent Vegas history does raise a suspicious...

    On 22 May, 2015, the Nevada House passed SB175, a bill that combined a ban on people who have domestic violence convictions with major firearm law reforms. The domestic violence law mirrors federal law, so it will have little practical effect unless the federal law is repealed or struck down by some future court. The bill passed the Senate 14 to 5, and the Assembly, 25 to 17. Governor Sandoval is expected to sign it. I am writing this article from Nevada, and these gun law reforms are welcome. They are similar to those enacted by a number of states...

    But today, Republicans control both the state Senate AND the state Assembly, which means “Amanda’s Law” should finally be approved with no fuss or muss whatsoever, right? Indeed, the bill passed easily in the Assembly. But two Republican senators – for unknown reasons (the ones they give are total bull$#!+) – are trying to kill the bill: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Greg Brower, and his boss, Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson. The pair blocked a hearing and committee vote on Amanda’s Law last week before the deadline, killing its chance to get a stand-alone up-or-down vote on the Senate floor....

Heck would be a top recruit for Republicans looking to take the seat being vacated by Sen. Harry Reid. The congressman had initially said he would not run, but recently declared he was reconsidering. According to the source, Heck said in a recent conversation he had not yet made a final decision, but he was close to making...

    At its height, Nevada was ground zero for the Great Recession. Unemployment topped 14 percent, the highest in the nation. The state led in per-capita bankruptcy filings. And one in every 10 homes faced foreclosure. But while Nevada’s jobless and foreclosure rates still rank high relative to other states, the raw numbers have plummeted. Lawmakers who agonized about public employee layoffs and an overburdened unemployment insurance fund a few years ago are now fretting about a shortage of teachers and want to implement new taxes worth hundreds of millions of dollars. And in another sign of the times, they want...

    It took Republicans three tries to win control of the US Senate and consolidate Congress under their leadership. In the end, the landscape left by the 2008 Democratic triumph left them uniquely vulnerable in the sixth-year midterm of an unpopular presidency. The tables will turn in 2016, warns National Journal’s Charlie Cook, as the gains of 2010 will make Republicans highly vulnerable to losing control of the Senate once again: Today, The Cook Political Report puts two Republican-held seats in the “Toss Up” category—the open seat in Florida and Kirk in Illinois. That toss-up column will certainly grow as...

The boosters had wanted to build a clubhouse for the teenage ball players, but after months of delay they came up with an alternative plan. One of the parents knew the owner of a company that made precast one-story buildings. The company offered to donate the manpower...

David Parks, D-Las Vegas, would ban what’s called “conversion” or “reparative” therapy for people younger than 18, basically a psychological assault intended to turn a gay person into a straight one. It’s been widely discredited by mental health professionals, but it still happens. The bill had a hearing back on April 6, but it hasn’t moved since. Why? It’s not the opposition: Only one witness opposed it, one who’s known for somewhat exotic testimony. In this instance, the word salad ranged from musings about where the...

In essence, that means police on official business could claim the legal right to bust into a private citizen’s home and occupy it. The determination from federal district court Judge Andrew Gordon was rendered when he dismissed a Third Amendment claim from a Henderson, Nevada, family who suffered that very fate.

The Nevada Rancher was in a legal battle with the federal government and the state of Nevada over grazing fees and property rights which turned into a standoff between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and a literal army of Bundy’s supporters. Cliven’s cattle had been rustled out from under him and parts of his land blocked off. After some tense moments in the confrontation the BLM blinked first, packed their things and left. They vowed at the time that Bundy hadn’t heard the last of...

    Hillary Clinton is prepared to formally declare her intention to run for president on Sunday, ending years of speculation over her ambitions to return to the White House as the first female president of the United States. The political world’s worst-kept secret will officially escape out into the wild shortly before noon Eastern time with the launch of Clinton’s campaign website. As the Guardian first reported early Friday, the former secretary of state is scheduled to announce her second presidential candidacy on Twitter – alongside simultaneous video and email messages – while aboard a plane from New York to the...

    Two of the country’s most powerful and politically influential labor unions are backing President Obama in the recent court challenge to his 2014 executive action on illegal immigration, saying they support the president’s effort because "undocumented workers" need more workplace protection and their participation helps the U.S. economy. The AFL-CIO and the National Education Association on Monday each filed so-called amicus briefs in a federal appeals court case in which Texas and 26 other states are challenges the president’s 2014 memorandum on illegal immigration. The memorandum essentially expands work authorization and delayed-deportation programs for illegal immigrants. And it provides similar...

" Bayh, though, suggested the friction now could give way to better times soon for Democrats. “I do think with a new president, potentially new leaders, certainly for Democrats in the Senate --who knows about the House -- there may be a season for governing where people might actually find more common ground,starting all over with a blank sheet of paper,” Bayh said. “That would be a good thing for the country.”

    The day before he put a gun to his head and killed himself at an M Resort buffet on Easter, a Las Vegas man filled a box with his complaints against the resort and its employees and mailed it to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In his final, angry message to the world, delivered to the newspaper Monday morning, John Noble blamed his suicide on depression that set in after the Henderson resort awarded him free meals at the buffet for life then banned him from the property in 2013 for harassing some of the women working there. “Today, I end...

    Decline in speeding ticket revenue throughout Nevada threatens the state judicial budget. Nevada courts are out of cash because police are not writing enough speeding tickets. State Supreme Court Chief Justice James W. Hardesty sounded the warning before the state Joint Subcommittee on General Government on March 11, telling lawmakers that the coffers are running dry at an alarming rate. "We thought the decline would be about three or so percent," Justice Hardesty explained. "We budgeted for a five percent decline in the budget that the governor recommended. We now believe based on the numbers we're seeing that the decline...

    Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz will launch his first Campaign ads for the 2016 presidential campaign during Easter Weekend. The GOP presidential hopeful bought air time during FOX News’ “Killing Jesus” program, which is adapted from Bill O’Reilly’s book by the same title. Cruz also purchased advertising time to run campaign commercials during NBC’s ”A.D.: The Bible Continues”, on Easter Sunday. The NBC ads will run in the targeted early primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. In the first week after Cruz formally announced his entry into the 2016 presidential race, the Texas Senator...

    The Obama Justice Department has filed its much anticipated corruption indictment against Senator Robert Menendez. He is the New Jersey Democrat who, from his powerful senior seat on the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, has vehemently opposed President Obama’s negotiations with the jihadist regime in Iran, as well as his outreach to Castro’s Cuba. Two things about the Obama administration cannot be denied. First, the president is desperate to cut a deal with the mullahs on their nuclear program, so much so that he has erased virtually every red line he ever purported to draw and has not been shy about...

    Republican presidential hopefuls are united in blasting President Obama for his chaotic enforcement of marijuana laws, but the unity quickly breaks down when they are asked how they would handle things if they were in the White House. Some have sent mixed signals, saying state decisions should be respected while questioning how Mr. Obama has respected those decisions. Others have refused to say how they would wield the federal bureaucracy against marijuana. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is one of the few potential candidates to take a firm stance, saying he would insist on following federal statutes that outlaw the drug....

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is making a play for the West in the 2016 race by touting his opposition to the federal government’s expansive land holdings. Cruz’s disdain for federal land control is resonating with Westerners whose lives are impacted by land managers, and could help him win over conservatives in Nevada, one of the early nominating states in the presidential contest. “This is an issue he’s been focused on for quite some time, and it’s one that plays extremely well with the conservative base in the western part of the United States,” said Ford O’Connell, a GOP strategist who...
