The Football OWNERS Approval of the Oakland Raiders Move to Las Vegas is a BIG DEAL!
By a an owner vote of 31-1 the approval has passed. This is GREAT NEWS for Las Vegas.
No doubt the Oakland community is deeply disappointed that they lost their team. A case of To much, to little, to late. Hopefully they won’t hold a grudge very long, as we’d like them to stay fans and visit in Las Vegas.
The city of Las Vegas fought hard to make having a PRO Football team, specifically the Oakland Raiders a reality. The city’s hard and persistent work paid off! We will update this exciting announcement as more details are shared.
Starting May 3rd, in order to make a local call in Southern Nevada, you will need to add 702 to EVERY call, making it a 10 digit call.
No, you don’t have to add a 1 before the 702.
For Example: you will dial 702-xxx-xxxx
Yes it’s a hassle. Yes it’s a pain. The fact is, we ran out of numbers for Southern Nevada. So they will be adding a BRAND NEWW area code for Southern Nevada starting in June. And that area code will be 725.

It’s going to take time to get use to the new dialing procedures. In a few weeks most everyone will be over the hump. With growth in any city, CHANGE is not to far behind.

Yes, Walmart Credit Card Machines Are Down NationWide!
Minutes ago I walked into a Walmart on Tropicana Ave in Las Vegas, Nevada and the workers at the door said,” We are only taking cash payments because our credit card machines are down”. I asked are the Walmart Credit Machines down just in this store and the workers responded, “No, the Walmart Credit Card Machines are down nationwide.” I thought to myself, WOW! This is pretty unbeleivable. I shared with the Wamart workers I needed to get some medication. They suggested I go to the Bank of America at the other end of the parking lot in order to use their ATM machine. I noticed a Citibank was closer so I pulled in to their parking lot. I shared with the teller that all the Walmart Credit Card Machines were down and they responded, Bank of America is down too! My friend Danny Cahill texted me saying Wikipedia is also down. I don’t know what is going on but this sure sounds like a cyber attack to me. As of this writing which is 3:29 PM Pacific Coast Time, I have see nothing on the news or online about this.
I hope Walmart gets their Credit Card Machines working soon! They must be losing thousands of dollars a second!
