Car Seat Safety Checked

Car Seat Safety Checked

 

Henderson police held a checkpoint Wednesday to ensure children were properly buckled up.

The police department teamed with SAFE KIDS to make sure car seats were properly installed, and children were strapped in.

“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death of children. So, it is so important to have your kids buckled up every time, every ride,” Jeanne Cosgrove with SAFE KIDS said. “Most of these parents today have said they were going a short distance and didn't think anything could happen in that short distance, but it can.”

Nevada law says all children under the age of 6 or weighing less than 60 pounds must be in a car seat. A driver with a child not in a car seat can face a $300 ticket.

Free Screenings for Fall Risk

Free Screenings for Fall Risk

 

The Southern Nevada Health District is working with Nevada Geriatric Education Consortium to sponsor Fall Prevention Awareness Day with a series of fall prevention programs.

The health district has set up fall testing for seniors at centers around the Las Vegas Valley Friday. The testing starts at noon and goes until 2:30 p.m. The screenings are free. Those who test positive for being at risk for a fall will be referred to Stepping On a fall prevention program.

Every year more than one-third of adults 65 and older suffer some kind of fall. Of those, one-third is hurt. Research also shows people who fall are likely to fall again, and each fall increases the chance of seriously injury.

New Reality TV Series Showcases Trailer Park Housewives

LAS VEGAS - Move over real housewives. "The Trailer Park Housewives of Las Vegas" are moving in. "Trailer Park Housewives of Las Vegas" is a new reality television series being filmed in Las Vegas.

Bobbie Hemlock converted a school bus into an RV. She sleeps on a bed that's the size of a cot. It's butted next to her shower and just inches from her kitchen.

"It'd be interesting, because a lot of people don't realize that living ‘the trailer life'… isn't always just the completely poor. I have three college degrees, and I live wonderfully on my income and my retirement," she said. "I also have a cedar line shower that converts into a sauna, so it's definitely not just a trash mobile."

It's tight living quarters, but she couldn't be happier.

"I was building the kitchen and the bathroom fixtures in my apartment in my living room three years before I bought the bus," she said.
