Thursday, September 17, 2009

Maybe that’s why Prather is defending what he calls his anchor’s “lapse of judgment.” Others in the news business have other words to describe Radetich’s recommendation of her pitchman boyfriend’s services to spin against her own newsroom’s story on the embattled Tire Works. Freelancer Steve Freiss wonders on tonight’s program ...

Blow up over Botox
Tuesday, September 8, 2009
Judging by the voluminous options available to those seeking to inject Bovine botulinum into their wrinkles, Nevada could be the Botox capital of the country. Add to that laws and a regulatory scheme that are sorely lacking and you've got the makings of a nerve-paralyzing Nirvana, where medical assistants (a designation neither recognized nor regulated under Nevada law and only defined by the Nevada Administrative Code) openly break the law in any number of private settings, medical spas and doctors' offices - including the office of Dr. Benjamin Rodriguez, who was reappointed today by Governor Gibbons to another term on ...

Greetings from Metro
Friday, August 14, 2009
Certified letters almost always hearken bad news - in my case, usually something I've neglected with the potential for devastating consequences. So imagine my delight to find a certified letter in my Channel 8 mailbox that has languished there for more than a month. And imagine my relief to find it was only from the police.

Justice or Juice
Thursday, July 30, 2009
We hear all the time from litigants who feel they've been wronged in court that the judge and opposing party must have shared some undisclosed connection. The concern regarding relationships often has merit, especially in a small town like ours, where judges, attorneys and litigants are likely to have crossed paths.

Judicial ethics require judges to put those relationships on the record before rendering any decisions so that litigants are fully informed and able to assess their options.
