School Dedicates Garden to Encourage Kindness

Burkholder Middle School dedicated a Kindness Preserve to remind kids to be kind to one another.

The garden was dedicated to Josh Stevens. Stevens was 13 years old when he died in a golf cart accident. Since his death his family started the Josh Stevens Foundation and the Be Kind program. The foundation and the program are dedicated to spreading the message of being kind to others in schools around the valley. On Thursday morning the Stevens family along with students who received the Be Kind Award will dedicate a serenity garden. Burkholder Middle school students along with Leadership Henderson Class of 2011 raised more than $10,000 to build the garden.  The school will also hold a Be Kind Multicultural night on Thursday celebrating the community's diverse cultures from 6 to 8 p.m.

Job Hopefuls Arrive at Casino Montelago Job Fair

LAS VEGAS -- New opportunities are opening up for job seekers in southern Nevada as Casino Montelago prepares to re-open at Lake Las Vegas. The opening is at the end of the month, but the job fair for employees is going on Monday.

Casino Montelago is looking to fill 100 positions over the next three days, and in this tough economy, lots of people showed up bright and early to fill out applications hoping to land a job very soon.

"I live in Henderson and with the rise in gas prices, I really don't want to do the commute anymore. It's costing me about $50 a week in gas and I really like the area. I like the venue here. It's beautiful. I come up here and walk around all the time," said job hunter Letitia Krauss.

Krauss, who currently works at another casino on the Strip, hopes her experience will help her stand out. But she will have a lot of competition -- there was a long line out the door at the job fair.
