I haven't heard, JoLee, I'll keep my ear to the ground and report back if I hear any rumblings!

We were there a week ago and no one mentioned anything although we had heard that the folks who own the big three had bought 25% of the Nugget. They thought it wouldn't be long before they owned it all. I know that the MaxAir flights now include the Nugget and the shuttles stop there as well. It looks to me as if they will be part of the Peppermill, Rainbow, Montego Bay group if I were to guess....

I have to think that its a rumor, but I'm interested where you heard it.

There was an article in the Salt Lake Tribune yesterday that had quotes from Wendover officials that basically said things were slow, but it didn't mention anything about a buy-in or takeover.

A monopoly in Wendover might not be such a great thing for consumers.

I haven't learned anything. Just visited there this past weekend and the employees I talked to don't feel like they're being hurt like Las Vegas is because of the Wendoverexpress junkets, bus traffic from Salt Lake City, and the drop in fuel costs enabling individuals to be more able to afford driving out there. Since Generation 2000, LLC, owns them I've been seeing what I turn up on that company. Nothing so far. Only person I talked to that seemed nervous was a shuttle driver who told me other drivers had been laid off and he was fearing he would be too...and this was a fella who's worked there for years.

Don't know about the Nugget, but the latest news is that the Red Garter will be closing as of March 3.

According the the Elko Daily Free Press the Red Garter will close February 3rd. The Holder Hospitality Group's Elko Properties (Stockmens and Commercial) are not closing at this time but The Silver Club in Sparks is closing.

Correction: The article says it is scheduled to close March 3, not February. Sorry for the error.

I called the Red Garter directly - as of now, they are open indefinitely.
