    A laptop computer and Blu-ray DVD player, OK. But frozen dinners, oatmeal and SOS pads?

    A 44-year-old Las Vegas man was arrested Monday after police say he broke into the rectory of Our Lady of Sorrows Church on two separate occasions last week and made off with a number of items belonging to the Rev. Douglas Mitchell.

    Both incidents occurred in the early morning hours and in both instances, a priest was sleeping in the residence when the burglaries occurred.

    Las Vegas is normally a quiet town with tourists strolling through Plaza Park, but that will change this weekend as thousands of bikers flood into Las Vegas for the eighth annual Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally.

    Hotel and restaurant managers welcome the roar of the iron horses because it typically translates into a major boost to their businesses, and that translates into more gross receipts taxes to pay for things like parks and ball fields. The rally is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Plaza Park, the heart of the Meadow City.
