Surplus Auction Offers Cars, Trucks from Government Agencies

Got your eye on a used car or truck? You might want to check out a county auction this weekend.

Clark County and several public agencies will hold a spring government surplus auction at 9 a.m. Saturday at a county storage lot at 4320 Stephanie St., off Flamingo Road near Dog Fancier’s Park.

The auctions are held three times each year and feature items used by government agencies ranging from cars and trucks to office equipment and computers. Anyone interested in bidding on items at the auction is urged to pre-register during a preview period three days prior to the sale from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday through Friday. Prospective bidders can view items to be sold at the auction during the preview. Preview and pre-registration activities are held in the location on Stephanie Street as the auction.

“These auctions usually attract large crowds, and they start promptly,” said David Johnson, manager of the County’s Automotive Division.

Local Musician Tries to Set Mark for Longest Concert

Local Musician Tries to Set Mark for Longest Concert

Local musician Jefferson Montoya will set out to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Continuous Concert by a Solo Artist starting June 1 and ending June 3 at Tommy Rocker’s Cantina & Grill.

The 44-hour long event will feature more than 150 songs, both original music and cover songs performed with few breaks. Guinness rules state that the artist can only have 30 seconds between songs and five minutes rest for every 60 minutes played so the music will be almost continuous from midnight Wednesday through Friday night.

In addition to music from his three solo CD’s, Jefferson will perform songs from a wide variety of artists including Aimee Mann, Incubus, George Michael, Ne-Yo, Paramore, Queen and many more.

The world record currently is held by Richard Deschamps of France, and has been a much-pursued mark that has been attempted and captured a number of times since 2009.
