Neil Wood, president and chief executive of Markborough Properties Ltd., said Temple's responsibilities will include the organization of Markborough Communities Inc., a new company formed to manage CASINOS Continued from F1 the board that his firm's $60 mil lion Ramada Station hotel-casino in Laughlin, built with a railroad theme, will open in the fall of 1988 with 406 rooms. ' Rubeli said Ramada intends to sell its Laughlin real estate to Philadelphia businessman Herbert Barness for $52 million when con struction is complete and manage the hotel-casino on a lease-back agreement. The Gaming Control Board also recommended last week that Ra mada Inc. be allowed to operate Eddie's Fabulous 50s casino in downtown Reno. Rubeli said Ra mada Inc. has pumped $9 million into the Reno resort. The company holds a three-year lease on the Reno property with an option to buy. "We would not be undertaking this project in Reno if we did not intend to buy the property and be in Reno a long time, he said. In other action, the control board recommended that the Sahara and Hacienda hotels on the Las Vegas Strip be allowed to operate under a legal umbrella of a limited partner ship known as Sahara Casino Partners. Chairman Paul Lowden said that his existing Sahara Resorts, which will contribute all of its assets in the two Strip hotels to the partner ship, will retain 65 percent of the partnership units. The other 35 percent will be sold in a public offering through the E.F. Hutton and Co. The $62 million raised by the public sale will be used to pay off $32 million in debt. The remainder will be channeled into refurbishing j the Sahara Hotel and construction of a , 26-story, 575-room Sahara Hotel tower to be opened in about two years, Lowden said. The partnership prospectus says units will sell for $9 to $11. Lowden was asked why Allen Click, a San Diego financier who was thrown out of Nevada gam bling because of skimming allega tions, owned 2,200 shares of Sahara Resorts Inc., through a company called Cobra Investments Inc. Lowden said he was unaware of the investment and said if the state required Glick to be found suitable, that Glick probably would sell. The board also recommended approval of an application by the estate of the late Howard Hughes to sell 8 percent of its stock to Hughes Corp. The $30 million from the estate sale will be used to pay federal taxes owed by the heirs, according to state officials. Attor neys for the estate told the gaming board that Hughes heirs plan to complete the sale by July 1 in order to take advantage of capital gains. The sale will be financed through a $65 million line of credit that Hughes Corp. has with Bank of America. Attorneys said Hughes Corp. is made up of two entities: the Hughes estate and Summa Corp. Summa operates a half-dozen Nevada gambling resorts, which the late industrialist acquired dur ing the late 1960s and early 1970s.
