Dennis Gomes, Atlantic City Casino Operator, Dies at 68

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Hotel in Atlantic City, which his father co-owned. He told The Associated Press that his father had developed kidney problems after breaking his back last year. As head of the audit division of the Nevada Gaming Control Board in the 1970s, Dennis Gomes pursued Mafia connections to Las Vegas’s gambling industry. The 1995 Martin Scorsese film “Casino,” based on a book by Nicholas Pileggi, drew on Mr. Gomes’s investigation into how Las Vegas mobsters had embezzled more than $20 million from the Stardust Casino. Mr. Gomes said he started working at casinos “because I knew the business from the inside out.” Two years ago, after operating more than a dozen casinos and resorts across the country — among them the Indiana Live in Indianapolis, the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas and the Tropicana and the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City — Mr. Gomes joined Morris Bailey, a New York real estate investor, to buy the Resorts Casino Hotel.

Mexican entrepreneur left mark with school, plaza namesakes - Las Vegas Review-Journal

Sat, Jan 7, 2012
Professional Plaza, the area's first Hispanic business center, and Escobedo Middle School, 9501 Echelon Point Drive. Escobedo was best known as publisher and columnist of El Mundo newspaper, Southern Nevada's oldest Spanish-language newspaper. He died of pancreatic cancer in 2010. He was 77. Escobedo moved to El Paso, Texas, and worked in a pool hall in his late teens, his son said. "He was a hell of a pool shooter," Edmundo Escobedo Jr. said. "He loved to go to the pool halls and make money hustling. That's where he got many of his talents negotiating and working with people." He translated his skills to bowling and was soon manager of a local bowling alley. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1950. Escobedo had his first duty station at Nellis Air Force Base. He supplemented his income of $63 a month from the U.S. Air Force as a bartender at the Dunes, Edmundo Escobedo Jr. said. "He was an airman 3rd class making $63 a month but he could make $50 to $100 a day as a bar back," he said. "That's when he said, 'I'm not leaving Las Vegas.' " Escobedo Jr. said his dad hung around with many of the "wheelers and dealers" in Las Vegas and took a c...

Warren Hellman Dies at 77; Ex-Lehman President and Music Festival Founder

Wed, Dec 21, 2011
Wronglers, performing with them as recently as October. An accomplished endurance athlete, he twice completed a 100-mile running race through the Sierra Nevada mountains. “Warren was an individualist,” said James D. Wolfensohn, the former president of the World Bank and a business-school classmate of Mr. Hellman’s. “He had the confidence and access that comes along with being from a prominent family, but never rested on his laurels and lived the life he wanted.” Frederick Warren Hellman was born on July 25, 1934, in Manhattan. He was not, as many assumed, an heir to the Hellman’s mayonnaise fortune; his pedigree was in the finance and rag trades. His father was Marco F. Hellman, an investment banker. His mother was the former Ruth Koshland, whose relatives were prosperous wool merchants in California. His great-grandfather, Isaias W. Hellman, was a Jewish immigrant from Bavaria who became one of California’s leading financiers and served as president of Wells Fargo Nevada National Bank, which later became Wells Fargo. Mr. Hellman grew up in San Francisco and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, where he played varsity water polo. After graduating from Harvard Business School in 1959, he joined Lehman Brothers, where his uncle, Frederick L. Ehrman, was a senior executive and later chairman. An aggressive dealmaker at Lehman, Mr. Hellman earned the nickname Hurricane Hellman. At 26, he became the youngest partner in the firm’s... (New York Times)
