Business Owner Looks for Teen Employees

LAS VEGAS -- For adults in Las Vegas, finding a job with a 12.9 percent unemployment rate is no easy feat. But for teens, it's even tougher with almost twice as many looking for work.

Adults are taking away their traditional jobs and that's why a Henderson business owner only wants to hire employees under 18.

The Red Mango frozen yogurt shop doesn't only give teens a paycheck, it gives them opportunity to learn responsibility and money management -- both important life lessons before they leave school.

"We're basically competing against middle-aged adults that already have work experience and we don't really have any work experience, so its really difficult," said Liberty High School student Rebecca Osborne.

Businesses Busted for Selling Alcohol to Minors

Clerks at nine businesses in Henderson have been cited for selling alcohol to minors during a sting operation.

Henderson police say they made alcohol compliance checks over the weekend at convenience, liquor and grocery stores. Community relations officers worked with underage volunteers to test the businesses.

The majority of stores tested did not sell to minors. The voluteers went into 73 and 64 didn't sell alcohol to them.

Clerks at the other nine stores face a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Owners of a business that fails a second or third time could lose their business license.

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.
