Wooing Hampton
Wednesday, July 8, 2009
Doug Hampton, the man whose wife had an affair with U.S. Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), has been the hottest "get" in news circles (with the exception of his wife, Cindy) since Ensign admitted the affair at a brief news conference last month. Well, we got him and you can watch the first of our exclusive two-part interview tonight on Las Vegas ONE, Cox Cable channel 19. The Sun will post the program to its website Wednesday, too, for those who don't have cable.
Peer review needs overhaul
Monday, July 6, 2009
Cries of cronyism have long emanated from critics of Nevada's Board of Medical Examiners. In fact, the board's regular members were found to be so closely tied to Dr. Dipak Desai that Gov. Gibbons appointed special members to adjudicate the cases involving Desai's endoscopy clinics. Now, those presumably independent physicians have unanimously sided with restoring privileges to Dr. Eladio Carrera, one of Desai's partners. In exchange, Carrera promises to help make the case against Desai and others.

Former Gov. Guinn's son sued
Friday, April 17, 2009
Hard money brokers provide quick, no-fuss financing at double-digit interest rates to developers who can't get or don't want to get loans from banks. In good times borrowers make their payments and investors collect high-yield returns. In bad times borrowers default and lenders get left with property that may sell for a fraction of the previously appraised valued.
Step forward and back for juvenile justice
Thursday, April 2, 2009
Juvenile justice advocates are applauding what they see as a step forward by the Nevada Legislature, which is considering a bill that would raise the threshold age from 14 to 16 to certify a minor as an adult for criminal proceedings. But, as is too often the tradition in the Legislature, lawmakers are considering a counterproductive (and cost-saving) measure to close half the beds at the valley's only facility for more violent juvenile offenders.
Kincaid-Chauncey Regrets Lap Dances
Monday, March 23, 2009
Aside from sending young servicemen for comped drinks and lap dances at one of Mike Galardi's topless joints, former Clark County commissioner Mary Kincaid-Chauncey remains unrepentant for the acts that landed her in a federal prison for two years. And it's Kincaid-Chauncey's moral objection to the clubs, not the realization she garnered special treatment for her grandson and his friends, that has her regretting that act.
