Acts of Kindness: Marshal Red Davis

HENDERSON, Nev. - Marshal Red Davis demands the utmost respect from the 100 teens inside Judge Diana Hampton's courtroom. The teens were either ordered to attend or came voluntarily with their parents.

They are taking part in the City of Henderson's Life of Crime program, which is designed to enlighten the teens of the pitfalls associated with crime.

"This program teaches the difference between a mistake and a decision," Judge Hampton said. "We concentrate on the fact anybody can make a mistake. What they are doing here is making decisions, as small as they may be, that can change their lives forever."

Five years ago, Judge Hampton offered Davis the opportunity to lead this three-hour seminar. He's been facilitating it ever since.

A grant is allowing a team from UNLV to look for lead in older homes in Henderson.

“In the past, we’ve had a backward way of testing for lead,” said Shawn Gerstenberger, the interim dean of the school of community health sciences at UNLV. “We test children, and if they test positive for lead, then we test the house.” Now thanks to a a $2.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, UNLV is teaming with the city of Henderson to test for and remove lead from older homes.

Henderson Starts Tracking Abandoned Homes

HENDERSON, Nev. -- The housing crisis hit the Las Vegas valley especially hard and left
behind a big problem, abandoned and foreclosed homes.

Many homes were left to rot, becoming eyesores that can
bring down property values and make neighborhoods dangerous.

The cities of Las Vegas and North Las Vegas started
addressing the issue with a registry about two years ago. Now, city of Henderson is doing the
same thing. The city council voted to start its own registry Monday.

One of the main problem with abandoned and foreclosed homes is
it is hard to track down the owner, often a bank, and hold them responsible.  

For Bill Jones, the problem is down the street from his
house, and he is tired of seeing it.

"Right now, I don't even know if there's a property
owner affective on it," Jones said. 

The house has broken windows, garbage in the front yard, and
a big dead tree.

Millennials Demand Technology, Energy Efficiency in Homes

LAS VEGAS -- Two of the hottest markets for home flippers are right here in Las Vegas.

According to RealtyTrac, flippers are making a lot of money in two zip codes 89119 and 89169.

The target group for people who are buying homes, refurbishing them and then selling them at a profit are homebuyers between 25 and 34 years old.

It is all because hipsters or millennials, as the age group is often called, are willing to buy homes that look new and out of a magazine.

These homes of the future will be very different. Millennials are demanding energy efficiency and technology.
