Henderson budget shortfall could mean higher taxes, fees

HENDERSON, Nev. -- The City of Henderson is staring down the barrel of a $19 million budget shortfall. Proposed ways to bridge the gap include cutting services at local parks and recreation centers and increasing property taxes.

City officials say they want to hear from the public on the best way to make the cuts and what community members think about paying more to use city services.

Kim Dacasshe is a regular at Henderson Multigenerational Recreation Center. She brings her son Christian to the center every week for swim lessons.

"There's a lot of activities, always something to do," she said.

She isn’t thrilled to hear the City of Henderson is considering raising fees and cutting services at all its parks and recreation centers to save money.

“I stay at home, my husband works,” Dacasshe said. “I guess there are going to be sacrifices that will need to be made."

Family says daughter was 'bullied to death'

LAS VEGAS -- The family of a Clark County middle school student says bullying led to her death. Thirteen-year-old Hailee Lamberth's father Jason Lamberth spoke to the school board Thursday and demanded something be done to stop more lives from being lost.

Cases of bullying have recently grabbed headlines.

A girl went to the hospital following a fight at O'Callaghan Middle School. An unrelated school trend in which middle school students randomly slap others on the butt and share it on social media is also grabbing attention. "Slap Ass Friday' is sexual harassment , according to many parents.

The agony of bullying is constant for the Lamberth family. Jason aired his frustrations Thursday night.

Propane tank explodes in Henderson

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Fire crews responded to an explosion and fire at a recycling plant in Henderson Tuesday morning.

According to Henderson Police, a propane tank at Nevada Recycling exploded just before 6 a.m. and started a fire. The plant is on Sunset Road between Gibson and Eastgate roads, west of Boulder Highway. Fire crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire, and no one was injured.

A Henderson Police Department spokesperson says workers were disposing of used propane tanks - a process that entails cutting open the empty tanks.

When crews began cutting open the tank, some residue on it ignited. Debris in a nearby dumpster caught fire, sending a plume of smoke over the facility.
