1. Feature Story / LAS VEGAS - by: Josie Cory, - TVI Magazine
-----It is the destiny of Las Vegas to be discovered over and over again. The history of the city can be told of discoveries.
-----The name "Las Vegas" was tagged by the Spanish explorers who first discovered it in 1829. They first called it "the Meadows" - but changed the name when they discovered the lush meadows which were fed by a natural water reserve found in the midst of the desert. In 1843, Captain John C. Fremont, having heard rumors of a great river, entered the Great Basin to conduct the first official mapping of what would become Nevada. "A great part of it," he wrote in his journal, "is absolutely new to geographical, botanical and geological science." Even today, many of the plants indigenous to Nevada are rare and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
In the mid-1800s, a migration of Mormons
had replaced the original Spanish residents, but by 1857 they too were gone. It was in 1902 that Las Vegas was again in a state of discovery. Senator William Clark planned to build a railroad line between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, and he needed the artesian springs of Las Vegas to do it. In 1905, he auctioned his large land parcels, netting $265,000. Those who bought those townsites lots were never sorry. 25 years later the Federal Government purchased the townsites to build the Dam named after President Hoover.
-----An engineering marvel, this 726.4 foot high concrete dam can store two years' average flow of the Colorado River, (and which still supplies the three western states of California, Arizona and Nevada with some of their power), was responsible for pulling Las Vegas out of the Great Depression. It took 5,000 men over a five-year period to build its 70-story high wall.

Part 02 / 1931 - Then, in 1931, the revenue starved state legislature voted to exchange dollars for chips, they establish legalized casino gambling! Of course Clark, (Clark County was named after him) - then sold some more of his parcels to the locals for up to $500.
-----Notwithstanding, the Hoover Dam, the biggest event in the history of Las Vegas was the building of the Pink Flamingo by Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky in 1946, on one of Clark's parcels. The money was laundered into Nevada from the profits earned on bootlegging operations in the unlamented era of Prohibition and from the sale of counterfiet rationing stamps during World War II.
-----Although the Pink Flamingo was not the first of its kind to be built in the city, it was certainly the forerunner of the modern day luxuriously hotel/casinos for which Las Vegas is now famous. By the late 1950s, Las Vegas had a well established image of success and glamour. World famous entertainers such as Frank Sinatra and the other members of his "Rat Pack" (Joey Bishop, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford and Dean Martin) made their Las Vegas shows legendary. Las Vegas became "the Entertainment Capital of the World," a name by which it is still known.
-----In 1966, a new legend arrived in town -- Howard Hughes! Arriving suddenly in the middle of the night, the mysterious millionaire took up residence at the Desert Inn, which became his home for the next four years. During his stay, he bought up a great many hotel/casinos on the Strip, as well as a television station, so that he could watch his favorite movies.

3. Editor's Note / What was once the old Dunes Golf Course,
running (north/south from Flamingo to Tropicana and east/west from Las Vegas Blvd to the Freeway) -- was sold in 1956 to resolve a delinquent water bill in the amount of $356.00. As strange as it seems, in 1996, another legend arrived in town, Troy Cory brought the People's Republic of China with him to build the Forbidden City, -- 2/3s of the Jockey Club was purchased for Corporate back taxes. The venture is still in the work-in-progress stage. Today the old Dunes golf course includes the Jockey Club and the billion dollar Belagio, Monte Carlo and the New York New York Hotels. Across the street is the new Aladin Hotel.
-----Each year, Las Vegas is discovered by over 16 million people coming to sample the fabulous night life, striking landscape and spectacular attractions. All that made Las Vegas what it is&emdash; water in the desert, Hoover Dam, luxurious hotel/casinos with their magnificent stage shows&emdash;is still here, waiting to be discovered by you!
