  • Work of Art - Seattle 27.6, Denver 22.6

    Do you think it’ll work? For this Super Bowl edition of Work of Art, I asked a number of athletes, employees of the City Recreation Center — people who follow football — to predict the winner and the final score of Sunday’s game.

    Surprisingly, only West Las Vegas High School junior Brandon Gallegos predicted anything close to a slaughter. Brandon picks the Seattle Seahawks to beat the Denver Broncos 42-24. And why does he choose the Seahawks? “I don’t like Denver.” That’s reason enough.

    For several years, the city’s enforcement services division has been under the umbrella of the Las Vegas Police Department.

    That meant that an animal control officer was able to issue parking tickets and that all enforcement services division officers ultimately reported to Las Vegas Police Chief Christian Montaño.

    That changed earlier this month with the reassignment of that division back to the city’s Community Development Department.
