AIR DATE: June 28, 2011

KNPR's "State of Nevada" first went on the air in 2003. And nearly eight years later, we've reached our 2,000th program. We listen to some of our favorite moments and we talk about what's been happening in Las Vegas in the boom and bust years since 2004. We also reflect on the big stories over those years and think about the future of Southern Nevada.

    The ability to dream big and then the common sense to put into place the things necessary to achieve your dream are two traits that I think are necessary for success. Its also a great idea to keep a journal of your ideas. Reading the journal on those difficult and occasional down days may help to keep you focused and motivated.

    Perhaps, in the next 1000 broadcasts you could discuss innovations that might make the community better. For example, the same discussions with little variation about the school system does little to promote new ideas and stimulate discussion. Maybe the school system needs to be reinvented say, traditional instruction through the eighth grade then academies nine through 12. Are there scholars with similar ideas? Why is the education system in Germany considered below par; yet the economy so strong?

    Congrats on the 200th. Particular greetings and congrats to Ian, an old schoolmate from North Sydney Boys High, Sydney Australia. It's funny where life scatters ud all. All the best for the show. If Ian is heavily involved then my guess is that it is interesting, intelligent, to the point and compassionate. All the best for the next 2000.
