LAS VEGAS >> Officials have issued an excessive heat warning for the Las Vegas area Tuesday and Wednesday as triple-digit temperatures are expected to bake the valley and Lake Mead this week.

The National Weather Service says the Las Vegas valley will be sizzling between 108 and 114 degrees this week.

Temperatures near Lake Mead are predicted to rise to anywhere from 110 to 116 degrees.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be the hottest days, with temperatures cooling slightly toward the end of the week.

Forecasters say the prolonged heat spell and warm lows overnight will cause heat to build up to dangerous levels.

Wouldn't it be great if all Hawaii residents itching to fly all the way to Las Vegas and will endure this brutal Nevada heat wave, instead go to a LEGAL Oahu casino deep in the bowels of the Hawaii Convention center so that all Hawaii and Hawaii visitors can satisfy their fix to gamble. The only people who have a real problem with that is Hawn Air and Boyds

the problem is the human detritus stranded in hawaii, after dreams of fortunes won evaporate, form homeless tribes collecting welfare and quest benefits. the overall costs to hawaii taxpayers to support this group far exceed the lure of gaming income for the state.

Maybe not casino's, but I would consider the lottery for the State. With a limit or with a ceiling cap of how many tickets can be purchased in a month.
