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

Hello From Las Vegas! Well… I’m still in computer hell. One desktop is in the shop, we (hopefully) finally have all the parts for the back-up desktop. I’m losing a ton of time from all of that stuff and working off my laptop with 3 external drives plugged into it! Those (relatively) new drive enclosures that let you quickly and easily attach a hard drive from a desktop computer to the USB port of any other machine are lifesavers!

So… still no Members Mania this week (hopefully next week). And we still have one bug left in the contest software before we roll out a great slate of giveaways that we’ve lined up for you. Computer gremlins… hate them!

They notedáThough renowned for its debauchery and what-happens-in-Vegas-stays-in-Vegas shenanigans, Sin City is also ideal for rekindling passion. We agree. If you tend to make Las Vegas a family trip, try it without the kids. You just may be amazed at the sparks that fly!

Don’t Lose That Ticket – Important advice for you sports bettors: After nearly 18 years living here, you think that I’d learn! I took Oregon State with the points over TCU in the opening game of the college football season. Oregon State is traditionally underrated and I was getting 13 points. (If Oregon State lost by less than 13 points, I won my bet). They only lost by 9. I won!

The problem? I’ve completely misplaced the betting slip I need to claim my winnings. When you bet, treat those tickets like you’d treat cash. If your bet wins, they might as well be cash as anyone possessing the ticket can cash it in.

Also keep in mind: You CAN redeem them by mail within a certain time period. That information is usually on the back of the ticket. So, feel free to make a bet on a game that occurs after you’ve left town. But keep in mind that they print those things on the cheap receipt paper. Keep it in your wallet for too long, and it will smear off or fade. Expose it to sunlight for too long, same story. Don’t even think about getting it damp (let alone wet). Happy betting!

Presidential Remarks Still Hurting Us? – Mayor Goodman found out first-hand from a Financial Crimes Investigators conference here recently that their attendance would have been some 30% higher if not for the lingering affects of President Obama’s anti-Vegas remarks. While Obama has made Vegas-friendly remarks while in town (duh), he hasn’t been quick to make them in any other forum. The Mayor would like to see that rectified. More on this: Obama statements still hurting Las Vegas convention business

Ricky Nelson Remembered – Our friend John Earl and his Boogieman (Rhythm and Blues) Band open for Matthew & Gunner Nelson — pop band Nelson, anyone remember “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love & Affection” — in a tribute concert to their father Ricky Nelson Friday Sept. 24 at 7 PM at the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 S.
