In what is a first during our many years of existence, our last two “Friends” photo submissions have been from two of our international listeners. Joining Ireland’s John G. is his countryman Dermot H. (Dermot. . .isn’t that a great Irish name?)
Welcome, Dermot, to our Friends of the LiLV Podcast page!
The cool thing is Dermot will be moving to Las Vegas in December! I’m guessing we’ll have to meet for a pint sometime real soon!
By the way, are YOU on our Friends page? If you’re not, you should be! Just attach a photo of yourself to an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Many groovy things will come your way if you do so!

Melissa just called to tell me that tonight, UNLV men’s basketball is planning Firstlook 2009, featuring the Runnin’ Rebels’ first official practice of the season. It begins at 9:00PM tonight at the Thomas & Mack Center. Doors open at 8:15PM. Food/beverages will be available.
According to the press release I found, 4,000 fans attended last year’s Firstlook event. This year’s event will “feature an increased amount of team and individual drills as well as shooting competitions to give fans a chance to see many of the new players. Eight Runnin’ Rebels who did not play in games last season are on this year’s roster.”

Saw this on the news last night. . .the YMCA of Southern Nevada is doing something very cool. For those Las Vegans who have found themselves out of work, the YMCA is offering a complimentary six-month membership.
With the unemployment rate in Las Vegas at 13.4%, I’m sure there are a lot of folks who would appreciate this offer.
According to what I’ve read, the value of this offer is $470. The YMCA would like those who accept the complimentary membership to make a tax-deductable donation or volunteer with the YMCA (although there is no obligation to do so).
