The Dunes Timeline is an historical collection of news articles, facts and pictures of the activities of those associated with the Dunes Hotel and Casino. This is a work in progress and sole intention is to document the true history of the hotel.

The Dunes Hotel and Country Club, the hotel-casino I hold dear to my heart was a remarkable place to work and the stepping stone to my life’s journey. The early operators of this hotel were geniuses. These pioneer operators deserve to be remembered for their monumental contribution to Las Vegas. They were real gamblers and not pencil pushers. They had good common sense and ran the casino like a fine tuned clock. They had a heart of gold and never turned someone down who was down on their luck. This timeline’s intent is to record their history that would be lost forever if not memorialized. My hat off to Charles J. Rich, George Duckworth, Sid Wyman, Howie Engel, Dave “Butch” Goldstein, Major Riddle, Bob Rice and others in the Miracle Mile.  There will never be a hotel a great as the Dunes Hotel & Country Club.  It was a great workplace and my “Doctorate’s degree” in life experience.  I wish I could go back in time and do it again.  I am so thankful for the education.
