Today's show, "Memorial Day; How it Started & North Las Vegas is Broke!   

It is said that the summer begins with the Memorial Day holiday and weekend.  It is usually a time when families and friends get time off from work and come together for Bar Be Cues.  Is this the real reason for this holiday and how many people know what the real reason is?

I love a good Cue as much as the rest of America but this holiday is so much more than grilling and time off.  It is a time to reflect on those that made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy our day to day freedoms.  Other Americans that wore our countries uniforms made that ultimate sacrifice and the Memorial Day Holiday is our time to reflect on them, visit and decorate family member’s grave sites and be thankful as a nation.  Do you know the original name of the holiday and why it started? 

North Las Vegas is Broke!

Whenever I read or hear about Las Vegas and its lack of funds it makes me wonder whose minding the store.  This didn't happen overnight or in just a year but we could see it coming for years.  Who is to blame, what is the fix and should the state take it over?
