I am not much of a gambler, except for March Madness. When I think about my next trip to Las Vegas, I try to set a magic amount that I will leave at the casino. The Jewel City Kiwanis Club was treated to very interesting stories about the casinos not always winning. These stories were provided by Bruce Hinckley, a very experienced certified public accountant. Hinckley, who is the president of the Glendale Noon Kiwanis Club, shared stories from his 15 years of experience as the vice president and corporate controller of Caesars World Inc., parent company of Caesars Palace.

Once upon a time, I was a coupon junkie. My idea of a great Sunday morning was waking up early and tearing into my newspaper for store coupons that, when combined with club card discounts and doubled manufacturer coupons, let me score truly amazing deals on grocery items ? some of which I actually wanted. Then came the grocery strike. No way was I going to cross lines of picketing workers ? not even to nab a 50-cent tube of Colgate Tartar-Control. I rearranged my schedule to go to stores not involved in the strike, gave up bargain hunting as my favorite sport and found other ways to entertain myself on Sunday morning (hi, honey)

Tickets for Good Behavior Since 1996, the 7-Eleven Corporation has sponsored Operation Chill which is a program that allows law enforcement officers to “ticket” youngsters they observe doing good deeds or exhibiting positive behavior. The ticket is actually a coupon good for a free 12-oz Slurpee at any participating 7-Eleven store. In addition to rewarding good behavior by youth, Operation Chill offers opportunities for officers to interface with youngsters in a non-law-enforcement situation.

PATRICK AZADIAN According to the Bible, after Noah's Ark landed on Mount Ararat, humankind was given a second chance to redeem itself. Just to make sure redemption was not left to chance, different groups were assigned unique languages from the heavens to discourage the exchange of destructive ideas. There was probably some kind of a meeting, where up-and-coming nations were assigned their respective lingo and handed out the resources to prosper.
