This year the lucky city is Las Vegas, Nevada. No doubt your luck and your fun will improve with a trip to my home town. Let s set the record straight. The President of NAFUSA for 2003 is Bill Robertson (District of New Jersey ). Bill Robertson picked Las Vegas. This will be the second time Las Vegas has hosted our group. Our friend, The Honorable Sonny W. H.Dilahunty (Eastern District of Arkansas ), chose the town back when he was president in So much fun was had by all back then that there was serious talk of having the conference in Las Vegas every third year. East West Vegas! The dates are May 8-11, This year the conference will be held at the magnificent MGM Grand Hotel located in the center of the fabulous Las Vegas strip. This hotel has just about everything one could imagine; restaurants galore, spas, slot machines, 5000 rooms (biggest in the world), shops, arcades, etc., etc. Did I mention slot machines? The hotel rate is a steal for a group rate of $ a night single or double. Additional persons in the room are $25.00 apiece.

We have had much applause for these boat trips. The New York City excursion is still the topic of conversation. NAFUSA Las Vegas 2003 Golf Tournament This year we have put together something new and different for NAFUSA: A Golf Tournament. The event will be held on Thursday May 8th at 9:00 am at, Canyon Gate Golf Course, a world class course here in Las Vegas.

3 February 2003 Page 3 C.L.E. Our Continuing Legal Education program is really shaping up real fine. I used to have to beg the membership and the speakers to participate. Our past successes seem to bring forth the volunteers. The following represents the tentative program for CLE: Friday May 9, :00 am Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys The Director, The Legal Counsel and the Chairman of the Attorney Generals Advisory Committee. 9:00 am United States Federal Public Defender for Nevada Franny Forsman (spoke at the Lake Tahoe Conference and was a huge success) and Richard Wright, Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney for Nevada and one of the most highly regarded Criminal Defense Attorneys in the Country They re putting a little something together. 10:00 am Professor of Law Carl William Tobias (see bio on page 2) 11:00 am Assistant Attorney General for the United States Deborah Daniels 12:00 pm Leave for Lake Mead Saturday May 10, :00 am Anatomy of a Sting: Stan Hunterton Former Strike Force Attorney and prominent Nevada practitioner.

The following people have agreed to participate in our program. Please send me your thoughts on what you think would be most interesting: The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Nevada The Honorable Deborah Agosti The Chief Federal District Judge for Nevada The Honorable Philip Pro The Mayor of Las Vegas and Former Criminal Defense Attorney The Honorable Oscar Goodman The Attorney General of the State of California The Honorable William (Bill) Lockyear The Dean of the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Law Dean Richard Morgan Dr. Erminia Guaneri, Scripts Clinic and Dr. John Farquar, Stanford Center for Disease have been recommended by our friend, The Honorable Mike Hawkins, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. He applauds the presentations they make on how to deal with aging, stress and wellness a must see. There are also a couple of exciting dinner speakers on tap. I bet we can get 2 hours of CLE from this group. Our conference is traditional. A cocktail reception on Thursday night (May 8, 2003), CLE on both Friday and Saturday mornings, a Friday afternoon event, an open Saturday Afternoon (Las Vegas should fill that void rather easy), a Saturday night dinner and speaker. This year we have added a golf tournament. Not too bad. Get yourself registered. It s going to be a great and informative time. The golf tournament is on Thursday morning and is a new event.

5 Page 5 Other Announcements... A special salute to our former President Jimmy Carter on his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. A more deserving man there isn t. Jay B. Stephens joined Raytheon in October of 2002 as senior vice president and general counsel of Raytheon.

Former Attorney General Richard Thornburgh and his wife Ginny will be the recipients of the Henry B. Betts Award on March 4, This award is bestowed upon the Thornburghs by the American Association of People with Disabilities. The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is a national membership organization dedicated to promoting the economic and political empowerment of all people living with disabilities in the U.S. AAPD was founded in 1995 by a group of cross-disability leaders to help unite the diverse community of people with disabilities, including their family, friends and supporters. And to be a national voice for change in implementing the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act: equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. You will soon experience a new and expanded website. Please be patient with the process, but the wait will be short and the outcome will be great. Over the past few years a few of our members have expressed a real concern over the way we impose or attach dues to our membership. In particular, our senior members. The board certainly does not want to offend anyone and at the mid-year meeting they unanimously voted to re-establish the dues for those members over 70 years old at $ a year. We want everyone to belong and they felt this minimal assessment would assure that participation and create a feeling of proprietorship. Mahlon Brown (Yours Truly) will be busy the next couple of months managing the Re-Election Campaign of his son. The Judge (Municipal Court Judge). Recent polls ranked him number one to be retained at 91%. NAFUSA s Annual Conference May 8-11, 2003 Las Vegas, Nevada MGM Grand Hotel This is a reminder to Pay your 2003 Dues.
