Statistics show that most baby boomers have a strong desire to remain independent as they age. These hardworking Americans are turning their noses up at the idea of spending their golden years in a strange nursing home. They have an unshakeable yearning to live life at home as long as possible.

Blackstone Group’s time as a Strip casino operator is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean the New York-based investment conglomerate is done with Las Vegas.
Through its Blackstone Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), the company will continue to own the land and buildings associated with four Strip properties operated by MGM Resorts International.
On Wednesday, Blackstone prepared to say goodbye after eight years as the operator of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, after selling the operations of the Cosmopolitan to MGM Resorts for $1.625 billion.
Blackstone executives held an employee appreciation event inside the Chelsea theater. At the conclusion, Cosmopolitan CEO Bill McBeath announced that all 5,400 employees would receive a bonus of $5,000 each – an outlay of $27 million by Blackstone.
“Our success was completely attributable to the people on the ground, the people cleaning the rooms, working the restaurants, working the front desk, dealing cards,” Tyler Henritze, head of strategic investments for Blackstone Real Estate Americas said following the raucous announcement. “I think this is just a very small way for us to show our appreciation.”
Through Blackstone’s REIT, the company will retain an 80 percent ownership in the Cosmopolitan’s 8.7-acre Strip parcel. Stonepeak Partners and Cherng Family Trust (founders of the Panda Restaurant Group that includes the Panda Express chain), are also part of the ownership group – a deal valued at $4.055 billion.
MGM Resorts will pay an annual rent of $200 million to operate the Cosmopolitan.
McBeath, who will remain with Blackstone but will no longer be the Cosmopolitan’s top executive, told employees during the event that MGM CEO Bill Hornbuckle understands the Cosmopolitan “has its own brand and culture” and has been successful over the last eight years.
“He stated the Cosmopolitan has to have its own identity,” McBeath said.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board recommended approval for MGM Resorts’ acquisition of the Cosmopolitan’s operations last week, and the Nevada Gaming Commission will consider the transaction during a hearing Thursday in Las Vegas.
Henritze said Blackstone “would buy a (Strip) asset to operate again if the right opportunity came up.”
For now, however, Blackstone is focused on a $6.3 billion purchase of Australian casino developer Crown Resorts, which will see Blackstone become the operator of the country’s largest gaming operator.
But Henritze said Blackstone continues to evaluate the Las Vegas market. UNITE HERE President D. Taylor, speaking during the employee appreciation ceremony, told Blackstone executives he had some “suggestions” about which Las Vegas casinos Blackstone should purchase, an apparent nod to the Culinary Union’s longstanding labor dispute with Station Casinos.
“Nothing would make myself and our team more excited than to be able to get the band back together,” Henritze said. “I remain very bullish and optimistic on Las Vegas and on gaming. We've had an incredible run with the Cosmopolitan here. If we had another opportunity to be back in Vegas operating an asset like this with people like this, we'd love that.”
Blackstone paid $1.73 billion for the Cosmopolitan in 2014, spending another $500 million on property upgrades, renovating the 3,000 hotel rooms and suites and adding new restaurants and bars. The Cosmopolitan opened in December 2010. The property was the last ground-up casino resort to open on the Strip for 11 years until Resorts World Las Vegas opened last June.
Henritze said after the Cosmopolitan purchase, Blackstone focused on becoming a landlord.
“In the last couple of years, the opportunities for our capital have been more on the real estate side of things,” he said.
In 2019, the Blackstone REIT acquired 95 percent of Bellagio from MGM Resorts with the casino operator retaining 5 percent of a joint venture valued at $4.25 billion. MGM pays the joint venture $245 million in annual rent for Bellagio.
In 2020, Blackstone and real estate investment trust MGM Growth Properties bought MGM Grand Las Vegas and Mandalay Bay for $4.6 billion. Blackstone holds 49.9 percent of the partnership and MGM Resorts pays annual rent of $292 million to the joint venture.
A few weeks ago, VICI Properties took over MGM Growth’s 50.1 percent stake in the joint venture when it closed its $17.2 billion purchase of the rival REIT.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Governor Steve Sisolak on Friday announced his intention to end Nevada’s State of Emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic on May 20, a move ending a measure lasting 26 months to respond to the global spread of the virus.
The State of Emergency has been in place since March 2020, according to a news release, and has allowed Nevada “to respond to challenges brought forward by the unprecedented pandemic.”
Between now and May 20, Gov. Sisolak says that Nevada will “continue to work with partners who are using the flexibility allowed by the Declaration of Emergency to ensure there is no gap in services when the emergency ends.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic tried and tested our State on every level. By working together across all levels of government and in every corner of the State, we kept prevented our healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed and continued to provide services to Nevadans in need,” said Gov. Sisolak. “I am so grateful to all the Nevadans who worked through these trying times in service of the Silver State.”
The release notes that the emergency orders “gave flexibility for Nevada to respond to challenges as they arose.”
“A number of measures – including portions of Emergency Directive 11, which waived certain licensing requirements to allow the State to bring additional health care workers into hospitals, and allow certain doctors, nurses, EMTs, and medical students to go to work under proper supervision to care for COVID-19 patients – are still in place, and the State is working with the appropriate partners as the emergency order ends,” the release states.
Nevada suffered a critical shortage of healthcare workers, as COVID-19 patient numbers surged to 2,000 during two winter surges. Hospitalizations remain at around 130 people across the state of Nevada, according to the latest statistics from the DHHS website.
The dean of the UNLV School of Medicine called the move “forward thinking,” as the pandemic enters into a new phase.
“The governor is still going to allow for licensing and more rapid licensing of healthcare professionals that we really need in our state. This is forward thinking, hopefully we’re going to learn from the pandemic and moving forward we’ll be able to do things quickly to keep the population safe,” said Dean Marc Kahn.
The shift comes as COVID-19 cases are once again creeping across the Silver State. The B.A.2 Omicron subvariant dominates cases, and according to the UNLV Wastewater Surveillance program, the B.A.2.12.1 is gaining ground. It already accounts for a third of cases across the U.S.
“Some of the newer Omicron subvariants might lead to a bigger surge in cases or infections. B.A.2.12.1. This is a variant that’s been circulating. It’s been circulating in the Northeast, and it’s resulted in a lot more infections and a slightly higher rate of hospitalizations,” said Dr. Edwin Oh.
The program remains critical to detect the amount of virus spreading in communities, as more people test at home.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) -A Las Vegas teenager is on a mission to save threatened desert tortoises across Nevada and has inspired a social media movement through the Desert Balloon Project.
The Desert Balloon Project Facebook page has more than 700 followers, and people regularly post and submit their photos of balloons discovered in the desert.
Christian Daniels, 16, was moved to start picking up trash after seeing numerous balloons during family hikes.
The threatened tortoises are attracted to Mylar balloons, believing them to be flowers.
“They’ll get inside their intestines and will suffocate them,” Daniels said. “It’s such a problem because a lot of the Mylar balloons are released are usually red to pink,” Daniels said. “I have found numerous tortoise shells,” he said.
Daniels’ family said the problem spurred him into action.
“That motivated him to hike more and more. Every bit of free time we have, Christian asked us to take him out in the desert,” father Bill Daniels said.
In a year-and-a-half, Daniels has collected 1,000 balloons and walked 800 miles.
“I started the Facebook page so I could bring awareness of how many balloons are out in the desert. Ever since I started there hasn’t been a single trip where I haven’t found a balloon,” Daniels said.
Daniels encourages people to stop the mass release of balloons, and if they are present in festivities, keep them tied, inside, and quickly deflate and dispose of them.
“I’ve lived in Vegas my entire life. I’ve grown up with the desert and I’ve really enjoyed it. And I don’t want that to get ruined because of balloons,” Daniels said.
NV Energy and the Tule Springs National Monument have partnered with Daniels to spread the message.
Daniels advises anyone looking to clean up the desert to bring water, sunscreen and a walking stick to pick up balloons; rattlesnakes often hide in bushes where balloons are stuck.
