Is the National Finals Rodeo Leaving Las Vegas?

On Monday, newspapers and television stations reported that the National Finals Rodeo would be leaving Las Vegas after 29 years. "Hold your horses!" said officials with the association that runs the rodeo. Apparently they hadn't completely quit Las Vegas after all. Some members of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association hope that they can come to some agreement to stay in Las Vegas. But can Southern Nevada offer a deal that would compete with a generous offer from Osceola County, Florida? And what will happen in the rodeo does leave town anyway?

There have been 16 Osceola re-enactors at FSU since 1977. Kyle Doney, left, is deputy director of the Native Learning Center in Hollywood, FL, and on FSU's Alumni Board. Usually, Osceola alone throws the flaming spear into mid-field, but Doney, a 2007 FSU grad and tribal member, has assisted four times in the pre-game "Tradition of Tribute."
