TVInews - 107 PETE ALLMAN'S CELEBRITY SCENE CHUCK NORRIS FULFILLS HIS VISIONS. Local Las Vegas TV.
Hong Kong Triad /
Chuck Norris known for his role in Walker on Texas Ranger has completed 232 episodes of the action packed family entertainment show. Through Walker, martial arts became very popular in America influencing the rise of marital arts schools.
Of course, Chuck Norris got is first notoriety in his first staring role, 'Good Guys where Black' in fact, he was the only individual who ever beat Bruce Lee in world competition. But Norris, since the beginning of his career had a vision of starting a martial arts combat team but put that on hold when he first started his film career.
Now after thirty years he's introduced The World Combat League, a league of team fighters that will compete throughout the country to determine, 'The Nations Toughest City'. "Most of my friends are martial artist. I wanted to create something that would enable them to make a living. I also created this league so that I could raise money to help kids at risk through my Kick Start Foundation."
Currently Norris has helped over forty thousand at risk kids, which have graduated through his foundation. "Kids need discipline, but also need to be inspired to make a better way for themselves. Martial arts have given these kids self confidence to be anything that they want to be in life." Eventually Norris hopes to go worldwide with this foundation.
Last year in October, the World Combat League began its competetion in Dallas, Texas at the Dallas Convention Center. There were over six thousand martial arts fans at that opening. In January 2006 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut there was another exciting match between New York taking on New England and Philadelphia taking on Miami.
Then on March 3 at the Orleans Arena the Denver Destroyers took on The Dallas Dragons winning 125 to the Dragons 116. The second team, The Las Vegas Gators lost to the Las Angeles Stars by one point. In any event, The World Combat League will expand to twenty-four cities in North America then internationally to sixteen teams in Europe and sixteen teams in Asia.
This is certainly a most exciting time for marital arts and according to Chuck Norris, super starts will be made, lines will be changed, and stories of heroism and passion will be played out.
Part 02 / LOCAL TELEVISION SHOWS POPULAR FOR VEGAS
From an entertainment perspective, shows such as Entertainment Las Vegas Style seems to be quite popular in our city. Tony Sacca, the host and producer of ELV has been on the air for eighteen years. However, there are more contemporary shows that are needed for a younger audience. Currently there is a show entitled Audacity Entertainment which airs weekly at midnight on UPN cable 14. Although there has been much talk about Gangsta
Rap being removed from Las Vegas, stated by Sheriff Bill Young, legally that's not going to be possible. Audacity Entertainment brings to the TV audience the cultural of hip-hop. Yes, that is true. Hip Hop is a cultural and like anything there is good and bad lyrics in some of these poetic songs. Nevertheless, Audacity's show features music, dance, fashion, all of which are part of the hip-hop scene today. In talking with Anthony Gonzales, the executive producer of the show, he stated, "I believe this platform for personal opinion which we call, rap/hip-hop/gansta rap the social economic and strife in the world of these artist would never be heard. Gonzales added," their voices and opinions would not be heard. Like fine poetry and art, we would not be privy to the glimpse of their world. If I am not correct, isn't that how social problems begin between classes and races when one party refuses to acknowledge the other and there achievements, talents, and beauty?"
There is also another show entitled On The Road, which features interviews of bands backstage. It is shot on location and airs on Friday on Fox 5. On the Road features music of all kinds from groups to individuals. This show has also gotten excellent ratings. As long these entertainment shows provide entertainment in a positive way and not influencing our children in a negative way through the lyrics of the music, then what more could we ask for?

COURVOISIER AND AL PACINO'S BROTHER VISIT YASSOU CAFE
Yassou Cafe, located in the Aege Plaza on Charleston, just west of Buffalo is a great setting for Greek cuisine, especially to view the mountain on their patio. It is quite the place for celebrities, especially for TV anchorman, Dave Courvoiser and Al Pacino's brother. Yassou is owned by Peter Papas and his family. I had a chance to partake of their food, which included beef and lamb Gyros, herb chicken, the Olympic veggie pita sandwich and a selection of salads and vegetarian plates. I would highly recommend their signature dishes, which would include Pastitsio-baked stuffed macaroni with chopped meat and cheese in a white creamy sauce and their lemon chicken soup. By the way, the Apepa family, of which Peter Papas in on their board, is celebrating their Greek Independence Gala at St. John's Church on Jones and Hacienda. Scholarships will be given out and authentic Greek dinners will be served. Call 798-8989 for tickets.
Until then, keep your visions positive and keep positive people around you, and above all know that God is there for you
