Nevada Brothel Controversies Update
While I was relaxing by the rivers Aare and Dnieper, Nye and Churchill Counties in Nevada witnessed some developments in their struggles with legal brothels and adult entertainment establishments. In Nye, recall that the main issue was provocative ads for a new stripclub, though the controversy was spilling over into a threat to legal prostitution. Well, now it seems that the owner of the strip club and Nye County officials have come to an understanding, and the more in-your-face billboard ads have disappeared. In Churchill County, legal brothel supporters have finally mustered up some resistance to the impending (for November) initiative vote to outlaw the houses of ill repute. They are challenging the initiative in court.
