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

Hello From Las Vegas! Running late this week. I lost some time to a some due to unexpected home repairs — the price one pays for choosing to live in one of Las Vegas’ more vintage neighborhoods — so let’s jump right into things:

Corrections – We don’t goof often but last issue had a couple of errors:

Moving To Las Vegas – I want to highlight a couple of posts in this week’s Members Mania section further down the newsletter:

  • Moving To Las Vegas û Where Should I Live? – I gave probably my most in-depth and certainly most recent treatise on moving here. Where to buy, where not to buy, how to not have a real estate agent steer you the wrong way (and how to find a decent one), and the latest tips for house-hunting online so you can have most of the homework done before you get here.I published it in our What’s Hot (subscribe)feed last week and we already have a lively discussion going on in the comments section. If you are just dreaming of moving here, getting serious about it, or (especially) if you live here and want to add your own two cents, I consider this a must-read. All comments (even those who don’t agree with me) are encouraged.
  • Retired And Thinking About Moving To Las Vegas, Senior Housing Questions? – I’m still about 20 years from hitting the senior mark, but I know we have a significant contingent of local seniors who are readers. Any help you can give by reading the post and entering comments below it would be incredibly welcome and appreciated!

Betty In The Sky With A Suitcase – Although not so much Vegas-related, one of my favorite podcasts is called Betty In The Sky With A Suitcase. Betty is a flight attendant for a major commercial carrier. She takes her recorder along with her and collects funny/interesting stories about the world of airline travel from pilots, other stewardesses (she’s totally cool with that term) and sometimes passengers. Info:

Arizona Style Immigration Law In Nevada? – A recent Review-Journal poll showed that 57% of Nevadans favor enacting the same kind of law that stirred up so much controversy in Arizona (11% were undecided). No move is afoot at present, and the Nevada legislature doesn’t meet until next year.

Closely watched will be the effect (if any) on Arizona tourism. There would definitely be less will to pass/enforce the law here during the current economic climate if it ends up hurting Arizona travel. Having said that, the full enforcement of Arizona’s law won’t be known until it gets worked through the courts. Going to be a while…

This Newsletter Is Helpware – OK, every once in a while, I call for you to step up to the plate. We’re able to keep this newsletter complimentary because we have enough subscribers to be able to attract quality advertisers. There’s so much more we could be doing. Things like a full-time shows/events writer. Sending photographers to more events. Being more responsive with our Facebook and Twitter pages so you could get better, more instant responses to Vegas questions. And more.

You’ve heard of software and freeware (software at no charge). Consider our newsletter “helpware”. You help promote it, and we can help deliver a better product. Plus, it is the least we could ask since we don’t charge (other similar Las Vegas information sites and publications do).

We know that many (and I mean many, many, many) of you read and participate on various Las Vegas blogs, forums, message boards, email groups and/or just flat out know plenty of friends and associates who visit (or are thinking of visiting) Las Vegas. Please take just a few minutes out of your life to help spread the word.

  • Mention the newsletter in forums you participate on — people can subscribe at the very top of and always at no cost.
  • Give us a mention in your blog (even if it isn’t a Vegas blog). Your readers want to know what your interests are once in a while. Kind of like my shout-out to the Betty podcast this issue.
  • Email the web address to friends and encourage them to subscribe (top of our main page).
  • If someone in the office is headed here, email them with it or write it down for them. (Trust me, they’ll otherwise forget it and end up at — not ours — or some other scam Vegas site because they remember it wrong).

Hey, it’s the least you can do, and you’ll be helping assure that we can continue to deliver good, complimentary, high-quality content well into the future.

Enjoy This Issue!
