Quotes

Quote: President and CEO Keith Smith said: "Our second-quarter results were below expectations, principally due to continued weakness in casual play. We are actively addressing this on several fronts, including strengthening our senior management team, refining our marketing strategies, and repositioning targeted nongaming amenities. We also continue to strengthen our balance sheet, and are on track for $200 million in additional debt reduction in 2014. Despite a tough operating environment, we remain diligently focused on improving our performance and generating long-term growth."
...It's so tight down there," said Las Vegas City Councilman and RTC board member Steve Ross. "I'm more inclined to help the larger employers (downtown) than I am private tour companies."
...You would hear things like: "If she doesn’t like it, why not just leave?" or "It doesn’t happen in my community; it only happens to their people.” So, we’ve come a ways in terms of that attitude, and people do understand domestic violence is an issue in every community."
"I think the governor really knows that Las Vegas needs an academic health center; it’s his challenge, really, to fund it," Atkinson said. "Our challenge is to find philanthropy to support it also because we’re not asking the state for everything it takes to build this school. We’re asking the state for ongoing support for the basic education part."
