Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:

Hello From Las Vegas! – If you are a long-time reader (and if you are, thanks!), just a note that I hope to be back in the saddle with my sections by the end of summer (maybe sooner). You’ve heard that old adage about “the best laid plans…” and we bit off quite a few new plans over the past few months, bogging us down just a little bit. I’ve been very busy on other projects but really look forward to getting back to contributing here.

Just a reminder, we link to many of the stories that I’d pontificate on in the More section. True, my inside knowledge and comments aren’t there. But you can still click through and read the basic news stories and keep yourself up on what interests you.

We’re adding a new feature this week. We always list all coming concerts and headliners in the right sidebar. But, you don’t know which ones are new without reading through the entire thing. So… we’re also adding a new section with ONLY the performers whose tickets have gone on sale within the past week. That way, you know what is new.

The Philippines Flooding – Our hearts go out to our readers in The Philippines, where massive flooding has displaced 20,000 people and created havoc among hundreds of thousands more.

3528 RP-C3431 A340-300 of Philapine Airlines is on finals into YVR

One of my hobbies is sitting at the airport viewing area on Sunset Road and watching planes land. It is always fun when we get lucky enough to watch that massive Philippines Airlines plane land. To all of you who fly upwards of hallway around the world (or longer) to visit us, we are very grateful.

Enjoy This Issue!
