´╗┐In Las Vegas, a city with the nation's fastest growth and the most hotel rooms -- more than 100,000 -- quantity is something that's taken for granted.And so, the time is now to strive for quality -- of the environment and of the lifestyle of this area's more than 1 million residents.Casino and business executives who spoke Wednesday afternoon during Preview '97 at the Las Vegas Hilton agreed this is the most important issue facing Southern Nevada's leaders."The extent of our growth and prosperity has been a surprise to everybody," said Steve Wynn, chairman of the board of Mirage Resorts. "But with this growth we face many challenges along the road ahead such as how to improve our air quality, reduce traffic congestion and to provide a better quality of life for our residents."Quoting Kermit the Frog, Wynn quipped, "It's not easy being green," and he explained that as the population of Southern Nevada grows it will be more and more difficult to preserve the local environment."The right question is not how much is enough," Wynn said. "The right question is how much can we do to improve that quality of life here."Brian Greenspun, chief executive officer of Greenspun Management Inc. and editor of the Las Vegas SUN, also stressed that more should be done to improve the quality of life locally."We have air we can see, but cannot breathe on certain days," Greenspun said. "We face problems with our water delivery system, and we live with a threat to turn Nevada into a nuclear waste dump."Greenspun urged the 2,500 attendants at the annual conference sponsored by the Greater Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce to support congressional leaders who are opposed to locating a repository for nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, and to support bond issues for more schools.He warned that if growth is not managed properly in Southern Nevada, local leaders don't have to look far to see the consequences that could loom ahead. They need only to look to California -- a state that is now experiencing many social problems such as an unstable economy and high unemployment.Dr. Anthony Marlon, chairman of Sierra Health Services, said explosive growth in Southern Nevada has meant jobs and security for many residents. But there are also lifestyle problems among many of these residents that should be addressed,zapatos manolo blahnik.He noted than one third of the state's residents smoke -- a higher percentage than any other part of the nation,prada online.Nevada also is among the states with the highest incidences of cancer,buy chanel, drunken driving convictions and teen pregnancies.Marlon stressed that local officials should investigate why there are so many social problems in the state and especially in Southern Nevada, and take measures to try to solve some of these problems.One development that has eased some of the burdens of local residents, Marlon said, is the acceptance by employers and employees of managed health care.Marlon said that 15 years ago Nevada had the dubious honor of being the state with the nation's highest health-care costs. During the 1980s, Marlon said, health-care costs in the Silver State increased 10-20 percent each year.But today local health-care costs increase 1-3 percent each year, a statistic Marlon attributes to the acceptance among area businesses and residents of managed health-care plans by health maintenance organizations.Marlon said the increase is in line with national statistics that show that more than 70 million Americans are enrolled in managed-care plans -- double the number that were enrolled in 1988."Managed care places the emphasis on prevention and wellness," Marlon said.Others who spoke included Clyde Turner, chairman of Circus Circus Enterprises; Sheldon Gordon,burberry bag -80%, chief executive officer of Gordon Group Holdings; John Goolsby, president of the Howard Hughes Corp., and J, Terrance Lanni, chairman of MGM Grand Inc.
