Las Vegas Showgirls Protest Hotel Resort Fees

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Las Vegas headliner Marie Osmond and dozens of showgirls are protesting resort fees charged at many Las Vegas hotels.

Osmond and the roughly 50 performers from the Jubilee! show at Bally's Las Vegas hotel-casino marched on the Las Vegas Strip Thursday morning to promote Caesars Entertainment's no fee policy.

Caesars Entertainment claims its no-fees policy saves travelers $3 million per month.

Las Vegas resort fees are usually not included in an advertised room rate. They cover hotel amenities ranging from fitness center access and internet service to valet parking.

The event Thursday morning was dubbed a gesture of solidarity with the American consumer.

Magicians Penn & Teller and other entertainers also joined the protest.

UNLV Student Among Those Charged in Hacking Attack

LAS VEGAS -- The FBI uncovered some of the faces behind the digital crusaders known as Anonymous. Twenty-year-old UNLV journalism major Mercedes Haefer is one of 16 people arrested in nine states for an alleged coordinated attack against PayPal. The virtual strike was in retaliation for the company's suspension of WikiLeaks accounts.

"It's new knowledge to me, and it's kind of crazy. Who would of thought that a hacker is living in our own backyard? I was thinking maybe another part of this country, maybe, not in this country," said UNLV student Travis True.

Haefer, code named "No", is seen on her Facebook page disguised with bunny ears, fake moustaches, and eyebrows. The FBI alleges Haefer and 15 other defendants associated with Anonymous used their extensive computer knowledge to shut down PayPal for a period of time.

Traffic Restrictions Near McCarran Airport

Traffic Restrictions Near McCarran Airport

Traffic entering McCarran Airport from southbound Paradise Road and eastbound Tropicana Avenue will be restricted for the next month starting Thursday morning.

In preparation for the 2012 opening of Terminal 3, the Clark County Department of Aviation will begin installing signs whose electronic messaging systems will provide approaching drivers with details on which airlines are located in specific terminals at McCarran.

The opening of McCarran International’s new Terminal 3 is less than a year away. In preparation for that landmark event, the Clark County Department of Aviation will this week begin installing the first of several overhead signs whose electronic messaging systems will soon provide approaching drivers with details on which airlines are located in specific terminals at McCarran.

“When T3 opens, domestic carriers will be divided between Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, and people will need to know in advance where their airline is based so they can head directly to the proper terminal. These road signs will be a key tool for sharing that information,” said Randy Walker, Clark County Aviation Director.
