6:18 am
and i'm glad we pushed into that instead of a hotel room to be safe. thank you. some of the other trouble spots, the strip has the movie production wrapping up. we have this accident on 15 north bound just after tropicana so watch out for that. as you make your way into the spaghetti bowl, 21 miles per hour. travel times not bad. 15 south bound is slow at 8 minutes. 215 north bound clear at 12 minutes. and 11 minutes from downtown to 215. it is wednesday and we look forward to wednesdays here because that is a video vault wednesday. we're going to sky 3 and tom, take it away. >> tom: the complicated past of the las vegas strip includes the glamour of production shows and the presence of the mob n. one case they were combined as seen in a new exhibit at the mob museum that is a collaboration
6:19 am
back in 1959 let's start with the opening of the tropicana. >> changed the town and it was elegant, sheikness that americans recognized. >> the focus on the women was accentuated by what they wore. >> it's interesting to note the gorgeous jewels used which are quite expensive and a lot of the hand work now we don't see in costumes. why bring a show girl display to the museum? this man. >> he became the executive producer of the tropicana, not because he had a great deal of expertise with production shows but there was no chance he would get a gaming license to run the tropicana. >> they weren't able to get the loan and there was an opening for the mob to step in. >> just as he started, brigs
6:20 am
>> this actually was a kink in the mob's plans to skim from the tropicana until they gained her trust and he ultimately was very involved in tropicana even though she owned it. >> i came in with 6.4 million. and within 24 hours there was 1.5 million of that 6.4 million left. >> as the show girls entertained, the foreign disappeared, eventually $11 million. >> it's a giant octopus that you couldn't satisfy. it was a bottomless pit. >> what they didn't know is that law enforcement was watching them closely and that ultimately they were caught. >> he was a federal witness last spring. >> all as the glamorous costumes
6:21 am
>> they are a symbol of the connection between the mob and the tropicana. >> he died in 1983 soon after flipping against his bosses. he worked low wage jobs until passing away in 2013. it closed in 2009 and the coassume display opens tomorrow evening while the main collection remains in the nevada state museum. >> dana: the mob very much alive in the 19. >> anchor: 's here in las vegas. we all know that. >> kim: here is a homework assignment for you. go home and watch "game of thrones." that's an assignment and you are getting college credit for it. we'll explain it all when "wake up with the wagners" returns. >> i really enjoy because you are not married. and you don't want to be married. >> i've never been married and i
6:22 am

6:27 am
location. tom, that was actually michelle's video she shot there with her cell phone. i encourage everyone to follow her on social media because she has other great stuff to share as well. >> tom: the strip was shut down when we were there a few minutes ago. let's show you this picture here from our video we shot just a moment ago. this is where we had a vehicle go off of the u.s. 95 north and valley view and apparently go through the chain link fence and settle up in the desert there. people are checking that out. back to a live shot. it looks like that is an accident with no injuries but kind of a mystery why it is out there in the desert lot. you see several police units on the side trying to figure that out.

okay. be "paul giamatti." that's the essence of this role. feel like a hollywood insider with high-speed internet from centurylink. >> dana: let's go live to the las vegas strip. >> reporter: you can see behind me nothing is going on because they wrapped about a half hour ago. they are done for the day but we were out here all night long and all morning we've been watching them shoot this one scene and we have video to show you. they are doing a car chase scene here and it's neat to be able to stand here and watch and see how
6:37 am
you see it from behind the scenes. i was told i got a little bit of information people wondering if matt damon was out here. he is not part of it. this was a stunt double that was driving this car. they pretty much are all cleaned up. the strip has reopened. it was supposed to open at 7:00 this morning. i talked to the production crew and they said they are going to be out here again tomorrow so expect more delays. they shut down between flamingo and top from 8:00 to 7:00. expect something similar tomorrow. they are going to be shooting one other day this week. cool to be able to see this going on out here. go to our social media sites if you'd like to see more pictures and video. cool to be able to see this here in our own backyard. >> dana: they shot that one scene over and over and over again. michelle had a chance to interview some of the extras.

6:40 am
cruz to donald trump. you saw them together in iowa where ted cruz is making a run at donald trump. she's decided to pull all of her super conservative support, the women who follow her, the evangelicals who follow her in the party and throw all of that toward donald trump. this could be a good thing for him because these are areas he hasn't been as strong. when he was at the liberty university trying to get more evangelicals on his side. certainly the sarah palin factor will help that. you have people in the party with reaction online from supporters of trump this morning going i really like the donald but stay away from sarah palin. she is a very polarizing figure, sometimes within the party.
6:41 am
this is going to have. cruz has to really nail down his image of the conservative candidate. we'll see what impact that might have. >> kim: let's go deeper into this portion of the discussion. your colleague calls her the half governor. i'm trying to get to her relevance. fox news dropped her like a hot cake. couldn't garner enough spoofer her interruption for her fans and had to drop that. how relevant is her support this these days? >> the fact we're talking about her is relevant. she's a big name among conservatives. she has a following. she also has a lot of people who don't like her brand of politics. so donald trump has the numbers.
6:42 am
he's had more trouble pulling support are evangelicals. he's out there trying to make that effort. sarah palin on his side is only going to help with that particular group. >> kim: that is why we love checking in with you live every morning because you provide context you can't see anywhere else here in southern nevada. thank you. we'll see you tomorrow on our program. >> dana: republican candidate ben carson suspended his campaign for a few days following the death of one of his staffers in a car crash in iowa. carson talked about the young man yesterday. >> braiden johnson was an amazing young man and i had an opportunity to get to know him. the thing that impressed me the was. >> dana: three other passengers from this car crash were taken
6:43 am
you can see the magnitude of that crash on your screen. >> kim: a 95-year-old former paramedic at a nazi death camp, the one we've all heard of will be going on trial in germany next month facing charges of being accessory to the murder of more than 3,000 people. he was stationed there from 1943 to january 1944. the trial for this former paramedic will start up february 29 after a court deemed he is fit to face trial that understand december. >> dana: a hero on screen but jamie foxx playing a real life hero just a few days ago. he and another good samaritan helped free a driver from this burning crash. crash happened just outside of jamie foxx's home in california. yesterday the driver's father and jamie foxx hung out together with the driver's father
6:44 am
his son's life. he says he's no hero. >> as we pulled him out [indiscernible] . >> jamie foxx saying he just did what anybody else would do in the same situation. the driver is 32 years old. he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. >> kim: tom will deny that he's a superhero but we know he can fly. let's they can in with him with a bird's eye view of the morning commute. good morning tom. >> tom: we're in sky 3 and have not had any matt damon sightings interrupt had amy shell sighting.
6:45 am
waiving but i saw us michelle disappear into vegas ink. i think she just got a fresh tattoo. looks like they are opening up lanes on the strip. we have this odd ball accident at valley view and 95. looks like a car busted through the chain link fence there making the exit from 95 north. went through that grass area and came to a stop. we're not sure what the story is there but at least it is not having a traffic impact as we continue team traffic. >> jeff: on this wednesday things are looking ok. just slowing on 15 south bound. 18 miles per hour. worse coming in on 95 into the bowl. so miles per hour. your travel times looking all right. 15 south bound account for extra time between the bowl and tropicana slow at 8 minutes. lake mead and downtown is slow
