Customs computer outage affects McCarran, causes delays at some airports

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Travelers entering the U.S. at some major airports — including McCarran International Airport — could experience delays because of a technology outage affecting Customs and Border Protection stations at several major airports.

CBP said Friday that it was experiencing a temporary outage with its processing systems and was working to fix the problem.

McCarran spokeswoman Christine Crews said there were long lines at customs in Las Vegas, but she said that is normal even when all systems are working. She said McCarran customs has implemented backup procedures to keep lines moving.

Passengers should arrive early to ensure they clear long lines in time to make their flight. Scheduled flights won’t necessarily wait for people who are stuck in a line... Read More

Man arrested in hit-and-run that killed man, 5 dogs

DAYTON, Nev. (AP) — A suspect has been arrested in a hit-and-run accident that killed a 59-year-old Dayton man and five dogs he was walking when they were struck by a driver who fled the scene.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says 38-year-old James Parisi of Dayton was arrested late Thursday in connection with the death of Michael Kuntz.

Kuntz was walking the dogs along Six Mile Canyon Road on the north edge of Dayton just before 7 a.m. Thursday when a vehicle crossed over the center of the road and hit them.

Court: US can reject asylum along parts of Mexico border

HOUSTON, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court on Friday cleared the way for the U.S. government to forbid Central American immigrants from seeking asylum at the two busiest stretches of the southern border in a partial legal victory for the Trump administration.

The ruling from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals allows President Donald Trump to enforce the policy in New Mexico and Texas, rejecting asylum seekers who cross from Mexico into either state. Under Friday’s ruling, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar’s July 24 order stopping the policy would apply only in California and Arizona, which are covered by the 9th Circuit.

The two busiest areas for unauthorized border crossings are in South Texas’ Rio Grande Valley and the region around El Paso, Texas, which includes New Mexico. Nearly 50,000 people in July crossed the U.S. border without permission in those two regions, according to the U.S. Border Patrol... Read More

Biden coming to gun safety forum in Las Vegas on Oct. 2

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A day after Las Vegas marks the 2-year anniversary of the 1 October shooting, Joe Biden will be here for a gun safety event.

Details on the March for Our Lives and Giffords presidential forum have not been released, but the event is looking to attract discussion from Democratic presidential candidates.

“It’s our hope that the candidates come to Las Vegas prepared to discuss bold and holistic plans, like restorative justice, to end gun violence epidemic and its root causes,” a statement on the forum’s website says. “We have to look at the totality of the problem, not just mass shootings that too often capture the media’s attention, but suicides and other forms of gun violence that go unreported. The vast majority of Americans are ready and have been waiting for common sense gun reforms. They too believe enough is enough.” ... Read More

Survey about underwear changing gives shocking results

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Changing your underwear does not seem to be at the top of a lot of American’s to do list, according to a new survey. The Tommy John survey suggests Americans may have some cringe-worthy underwear habits.

Tommy John surveyed 1,000 Americans and discovered 45 percent wore the same pair of underwear for “two days or longer.” The results of the survey were released this month on Tommy John’s website. 

Here’s where it really gets questionable: Thirteen percent of those surveyed said they wore the same underwear for a week or more!

So what sex is the guiltiest of wearing the same underwear? According to Tommy John, men were 2.5 times more likely than women to wear the same underwear for a week or more.

For more on a separate survey of who owned the same pair of underwear for at least one year, go here.... Read More
