World Series of Poker H.O.R.S.E. Tournament Results



I have not seen an all star line-up like this since the annual NBA event held last year here in the greatest city of them all. The 2nd WSOP $50,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. Tournament held at the Rio this past week included a virtual Who’s Who in the world of pro poker. There were not many “who’s he?” in this starting line-up!

Watch for Frank's updates on the WSOP in his column
"On the Rail at the WSOP 2007" in the upcoming weeks.

Rep. Shelley Berkley Takes Part in Kick-Off event Saturday June 30



Congresswoman Shelley Berkley (D-NV) will join with local supporters of the effort to create a national women's suffrage day, at a kick-off event this Saturday, 11:30 a.m., at the Mesquite Club, 702 East St. Louis (between Paradise and Maryland Pkwy), in Las Vegas.

The event will feature local members of the League of Women Voters and other supporters of a national women's suffrage day, as well as Former Nevada First Lady Sandy Miller and a special skit presentation.

"Those who took part in the suffragist movement are role models who continue to inspire generations of young Americans through their words and deeds," said Berkley. "Were it not for these pioneers, I would have never had the opportunity to serve as a Congresswoman. As Americans, we must never forget the struggle they waged in order to guarantee women the right to vote."

Rep. Berkley has introduced legislation in the 110th Congress to honor America's suffragists and their work to win recognition for the right of women to vote in the United States. The Berkley legislation passed the House on May 9, 2007 and is awaiting approval in the Senate. Berkley's resolution recognizes the anniversary of the inaugural women's rights convention which took place at Seneca Falls, New York on July 19, 1848.


Fremont Street Open To Two-Way Traffic This Weekend


Starting at approximately noon on Friday and continuing through Monday, July 1, Fremont Street between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eighth Street will be open in both directions.

Then, at approximately 4 a.m. on Monday, July 1, the westbound lane of Fremont Street will close for continuing work on the Fremont East District Streetscape Improvement Project. Traffic will be limited to one lane for eastbound travel between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eighth Street.

The $5.5 million Fremont East District Streetscape Improvement Project includes construction of a new Fremont Street featuring three blocks of streetscape between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eighth Street. Neon lighted gateways, neon elements placed in new median islands, decorative signage, expanded sidewalks, landscaping, lighting, banners and bronze medallions embedded in the sidewalks make up this project by the city of Las Vegas Department of Public Works. The project is slated for completion in August. Las Vegas Paving is the contractor.
