New Express Restaurant Opens

The new Sweet Tomatoes Express opened Monday in Henderson.

The new restaurant uses the same fresh salad and soup concept as the regular all-you-can-eat Sweet Tomatoes buffet but instead customers will choose what they want on a salad while an employee builds it.  They get the completed meal in a to-go container. Besides custom salads, the menu includes macaroni and cheese, bread and freshly baked cookies.

The first week the restaurant is open guests will also get a chance at a free drink. The first 10 customers every day for the next week will get a reusable Sweet Tomatoes Express cup. They can use it to get free beverages on return visits throughout September. The restaurant is also giving away gift cards and free meals.  

The new Sweet Tomatoes Express is at Eastern Avenue and Horizon Ridge Parkway.

Island Culture Festival Headlined by Music

Island Culture Festival Headlined by Music


Island music will be at the heart of a Henderson cultural festival.

For the first time, Holunape, one of Hawaii’s premier music groups, will headline at this year’s Prince Kuhio Ho’olaule’a Festival in Henderson. The award-winning trio will perform at noon., both Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 at the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 S. Water Street, in the Water Street District. Admission is complimentary.

Comprised of vocalist/bassist Kekoa Kaluhiwa, vocalist/guitarist Kanai’a Nakamura and vocalist/bassist Kama Hopkins, Holunape has been a fan favorite for 10 years. Their acoustic set paints the perfect picture of island life - peaceful, relaxing and true to the aloha spirit. The ensemble’s blend of timeless Hawaiian tunes from the ‘40s and ‘50s with original compositions, which highlight the contemporary sounds found in today’s music, as well as beautiful harmonies and witty humor, appeals to audiences of all generations.

Residents, HOAs Look for Options on Foreclosed Homes

HENDERSON, Nev. - Nevada continues to lead the nation in foreclosures and frustration.

"It's frustrating, because there's no real answer. There's no button you can push, no magic wand," said Jeanine Ketsaa with the City of Henderson's Department of Code Enforcement. "It's a definite blight to the community. Your lawn's bad as soon as you turn the water off, and the weeds come through, trees dying, and that's the curb appeal for your neighborhood."

The number of foreclosures may have dropped slightly last month, but that hasn't reduced the number of foreclosed homes that sit abandoned in Las Vegas for months on end. They become such eyesores, neighbors and homeowners associations want to jump in and do what they can to maintain the properties.
