WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas … With more and more locals (and everyone else) moving to Vegas, they can’t build enough homes and condos to meet the demand. There’s a new 50-acre, $1 billion (seems like everyone is using the B-word these days) Global Village being developed just six minutes from the strip. We’ll be talking with the director of marketing for the self-contained city within a city on Sports Radio KKEA 1420AM Thursday at 9 a.m. and Friday at 6:30 p.m.

$1.25 MILLION … that’s how much kala Lance Burton will produce from thin air and Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman will award to the first man or woman who breaks the world record in the New Las Vegas Marathon Dec. 4. Dubbed “The Most Fun You Can Have with Your Shoes On” (I can think of a couple more). There’s $400K in regular prize money, and the Marathon starts and ends at the Mandalay Bay. Register now at Wonder if Hawaii’s Dr. Sport’s (Jim Barahal) new MyMarathonDVD technology will be there?

CONGRATULATIONS TO the speaking half of Penn & Teller on the arrival of his new baby girl — Moxie CrimeFighter Jillette (and my kids thought they had it tough)! Why CrimeFighter? That way if she gets pulled over for speeding, she can say “But officer, we’re on the same side. My middle name is … “ It could have been worse … they could have auctioned her name on eBay and ended up with “Golden Palace Dot Com”

NICOLE QUIDES of Pearl City got five aces playing the Pai Gow Progressive at the Cal … she says the money (over $19,000) will go to her college education (smart and lucky)!

DID YOU HEAR about the two girls who exited the club at the same time and each wanted their car first? The lone valet looked at both and the first girl put $5 on the counter. The second girl put $10 on the counter and looked at the first girl, who promptly made her tip $20. The second girl then removed her top and the first girl said OK, OK get her car first. That’s a true story of the fringe benefits from an MGM Mirage valet.

DID YOU KNOW that it is illegal for a valet to give the car keys to someone who’s drunk?

The Global Village, a self-contained city within
a city, is just minutes from the strip

THE VEGAS Fourth of July fireworks should be spectacular … after all, it’s the centennial. Just remember that the Fourth of July fireworks show happens July 3, and is being set off from the Stratosphere Tower. So if you’re south of the TI or looking on the Fourth, you’ll miss all the action (that starts around 9 p.m.).

SEEN ON the strip, the Dupontes …
