Caesars buffet top Nevada restaurant in survey based on Yelp

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace is rated as the top restaurant in Nevada in a new state-by-state survey produced by reviews.org.

“Known as one of the best buffets in Vegas, it definitely lived up to it,” the survey quotes from a Yelp review. “When you think of buffets, you think of quantity over quality, but this place had both. It is super crowded and may take some time to get in, but it is worth it in my opinion.” -Michael W., Honolulu, HI

Yelp ratings and reviews were used to select the top restaurant in each state.

Astronauts learned moon’s geology at Arizona crater

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin knew they would be the first to walk on the moon, they took crash courses in geology at the Grand Canyon and a nearby impact crater that is the most well-preserved on Earth.

Northern Arizona has had deep ties to the Apollo missions: Every moon-walking astronaut trained here, and a crater on the moon was even named in honor of the city of Flagstaff.

“It’s a really interesting and unique part of our history, and it’s really cool to think that this relatively small town in northern Arizona played such a big role in the Apollo missions,” said Benjamin Carver, a public lands historian at Northern Arizona University.

Today, astronaut candidates still train in and around Flagstaff, which is among many cities celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20, 1969... Read More

“September the 14th. It was a beautiful day in September. Very strange because it wasn’t crowded there. I expected a lot of people because it was so nice weather-wise,” said John Gellifent, victim’s friend.

There was a dark cloud seen miles away. But, at Nelson’s Landing — the sun was oddly shining.

“I spent a lot of time out at the lake years and years ago in the late 60s and 70s and never saw anything like that anywhere. No,” Gellifent said.

The water was fast and there was no warning. ... Read More

Texas billionaire Ross Perot dies

DALLAS (AP) — H. Ross Perot, the colorful, self-made Texas billionaire who twice ran for president, has died.

Family spokesman James Fuller says Perot died early Tuesday. He was 89.

Perot rose from Depression-era poverty to become one of the nation’s richest men as the founder of computer services giant Electronic Data Systems Corp.

In 1992, Perot jumped into the presidential campaign as an independent candidate, challenging President George H.W. Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton.

Perot drew nearly 19% of the vote, the biggest percentage for a third-party hopeful in 80 years. Republicans blamed him for Bush’s defeat.

He had founded EDS in 1962 and sold control of it to General Motors for $2.5 billion in 1984. He later founded another company, Perot Systems... Read More
