Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:
Hello From Las Vegas! Amy’s on vacation and I’m on assignment. But we still had plenty of news and events to get out. Plus, I’ve done a number of new Members Mania posts and Amy was able to get a bunch of stuff done before she left. So instead of simply skipping publishing this week, we actually have a nicely packed (although slightly shorter) áissue with lots of Las Vegas everything for you.
Enjoy This Issue!
