Benificial Rains so far in the summer of 2014
This summer of 2014 has been a good one for the town of Las Vegas. July has been good for the ranchers, farmers, and even the city folk who want to see their trees and yards look green and pretty. Many of the seasonal creeks in the country are now flowing and the tanks and playa's are full and soon the gramma grasses will head out. Even as nature has blessed us with bountiful rains the town has had some positive things happen also. The Castenada has sold and will be rennovated into a Harvey House. Thankfully, the new owners have hired local contractors to work on the resoration and that is so positive. I believe we will see a renaissance of interest in things historical. The Plaza Hotel and the Ilfeld building have also been sold to the same person who bought the Castenada and we hope that the resurgence in history will keep those establishments also reap the benifits of new growth and excitement. On Douglas street, the owners of Dick's restaurant and bar have renovated the old Serf theater next to it. It is so beautiful and will host weddings and the like.
