PROMOTER PUSHES BULL-RUN FOR NEVADA

A Phoenix, Ariz., promoter hopes to organize an annual running of the bulls here to mimic the yearly event in Pamplona, Spain.

Phil Immordino staged a first run in July and is planning to ask the City Council for a five-year contract for the event.

This year's run was originally scheduled down Mesquite Boulevard, which is the business route for Interstate 15. It was moved to a ranch on the outskirts of Mesquite when the state balked at the idea.

Thousands of people turned out to watch more than 600 hardy souls run from the bulls. Three minor injuries were reported.
