lieu of flowers or other gifts, former first lady Dema Guinn and her family are asking those who wish to honor the memory of Gov. Kenny Guinn to send a donation to the Kenny C. Guinn Memorial Millennium Scholarship Fund to help pay tuition costs for Nevada students. Checks should be addressed to: State Treasurer's Office, 101 N. Carson St., Ste. 4, Carson City, NV 89701 All donations will be kept in a separate account to be used to help pay tuition costs associated with the Guinn Millennium Scholarship program. In 1999, Guinn pushed the Legislature to approve his Millennium Scholarship program, which uses tobacco company settlement funds to help Nevada students pay for their college costs at state schools.Source: Associated Press, family representativesFormer Gov. Kenny Guinn, who died Thursday at age 73 after falling from his home's roof, is remembered as a politician and private sector executive who could unite people of opposing views.He brought people together to solve problems as a bank president and superintendent of the Clark County School District. He took on the role of interim president at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas when the city and university were polarized over a controversy connected with the school's basketball program.As a Republican Nevada governor, however, Guinn did not unite everybody in his Converse High Tops Black Leather Nevada Republican Party.Guinn pushed for a then state record $833 million tax increase during the 2003 Legislature. Guinn, using a mixture of charm and cajoling, eventually won, although his proposal for a gross receipts tax, onerous to businesses with slim profit margins, was killed.That tax battle, pitting Republican against Republican, did not start the rift between conservatives and moderates in the Nevada GOP, experts said, but it certainly widened it. Rep. Barbara Vucanovich, R Reno, said of the tax increase."The fracture has never healed," said conservative blogger and activist Chuck Muth of Las Vegas. "Guinn was replaced by (Jim) Gibbons. So you had the conservatives who were mad at Guinn. Then you had the reverse. You had Gibbons who was conservative as governor who had all of these problems with (state Sen. Bill) Raggio and the moderate Republicans."The rift Converse High Heels

to improve the public school system and quality of life for Nevada's poor and disabled."He was not trying to unite the party," Vucanovich said. "He was doing what he thought was right."'Role model'Guinn will be remembered as a Republican who put "getting things done" above politics, even if it hurt his popularity with conservatives."He is, at one level, the role model of public service," said Eric Herzik, a political science professor at the University of Nevada, Reno and a registered Republican.Guinn's leadership in the 2003 tax battle was probably the key reason why he was criticized as a RINO (Republican in Name Only) in some circles, some recall.It's an unfair tag for a man who stood up for his convictions, experts said."The bad knock he gets is that he was a bad Republican," Muth said. "He was not. He was not a RINO. He was a moderate Republican, and he just had a different perspective on the proper role of government from what movement conservatives like I have. It is a philosophical disagreement."Guinn did a lot for the Republican Party, Muth said."Kenny Guinn went out and raised money for Republican candidates, he helped them get elected," Muth said. "He gave money to the party. I don't think the man ever turned down anybody who asked for his help when he was governor, any Republican. He was a good Republican."Guinn governed when the state's economy was running smoothly. After that tax increase, Nevada amassed a tax surplus.Guinn oversaw a $300 million vehicle registration fee rebate program. in 2005. It was an effort to appease still angry factions in the GOP, experts recalled."I remember the governor saying at the time, had he had his own preferences, he might have wanted to redirect that to the rainy day fund," said Fred Lokken, a political science professor at Truckee Meadows Community College and a former registered Republican who is now nonpartisan. "But he knew what he had to do was to try to appease (conservatives) because they were still winching from the tax hike."
