Spotlight On Business features Auto Specialist. Obviously automotive repair or books about cars would work here.
I intend to provide a short book review related to the featured books while tying it to the interviewee's craft, business, or talent.
If by coincidence, an interviewee is the author of a book, providing a review of his or her book in this portion of this column would be appropriate.
In addition, I would like to help Boulder City authors sell their books, but knowing there is a limitation in numbers I expect many of the books will will be plucked from the thousands I have left over from the First Edition book store. Which, I might add, will soon be uploaded to my web site now being designed by The Magazine's talented Art Director, Brad Appleby.
Steve Liguori, Sculptor, is the subject of this month's cover story. While we are all familiar with Steve's work locally, he has created some interesting pieces of art work around the Las Vegas Valley also. In fact, Steve actually designed a Christmas decoration for the Christmas tree at the White House in December of 2001. From his humble beginnings in Las Vegas working at the Desert Inn Hotel, to the beginning of his art career with his father, Bruno, Steve's story is one to check out.
