If you haven’t figured it out by now, I have a passion for history. In fact, that’s part of the reason I was drawn to journalism. Newspapers, it’s been said, record “the first draft of history.”
In 1879, the founder of this newspaper, Russell Kistler, did more than just write the “first draft.” He also made history. Unfortunately, part of his legacy can be found in the divisions that helped define Las Vegas.
