Kingman mentioned in USA Today

While I was waiting to take the airport shuttle back yesterday I read through the free copy of USA Today at my hotel in New Orleans. Here is a link to the article.

Building farther out

Las Vegas builders will go north outside the valley along Interstate 15 toward Mesquite, and south, toward Kingman, Ariz., and the site of a proposed new airport, says Somer Hollingsworth, president of the Nevada Development Authority. "This is a whole new ballgame ... thinking like a big city," he says.

[Emphasis mine]

If you read the article, this is the only mention of Kingman but it is worth noting that many here in Kingman have known about this situation in Las Vegas for a long time now. Because of that there are scheduled developments that are supposed to get underway in the next year or so to help accomodate the overflow of southern Nevada residents south into Arizona. Mentions like this in the national media let the secret out a little more each time.
