  • Renamed Streets Have Special Meaning After One October ShootingRenamed Streets Have Special Meaning After One October Shooting

    LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Within the heart of the Las Vegas Medical District, an intersection of two streets renamed during the last year has taken on special meaning following the One October shooting. The intersection of Wellness Way and Hope Place now stands as a symbol of the extraordinary life-saving work performed at University Medical Center (UMC), Valley Hospital and other nearby medical facilities. Wellness Way, formerly Bearden and Goldring Avenue, runs east from Shadow Lane (Bearden) and west from Shadow Lane just north of UMC (Goldring). It was officially renamed in April 2017 as part of a long-term master plan for the area focused on the development and evolution of a cohesive medical district that includes physical infrastructure improvements as well as a more coordinated approach to medical care with the arrival of the UNLV School of Medicine and a growing number of ancillary medical facilities. Originally named for the Bearden family, who are direct descendants of Robert E. Lake, the first barber in Las Vegas and the found of the first school in Las Vegas, Wellness Way planned improvements include a future pocket park that will commemorate the family’s historic contribution tot he area via a plaque in their honor. The park is expected to be complete later this year. According to Lois Tarkanian, Mayor Pro Tem, city of Las Vegas, the name change to Wellness Way was a unanimous decision of the Las Vegas Medical District and the department of Economic and Urban Development and in keeping with the vision of the area that is undergoing significant economic redevelopment as a result of the new medical school, improvements to existing medical facilities and the arrival of new businesses to support the growing area. Hope Place, formerly known as Rose Street and renamed in March 2016, runs north and south in front of the UMC Trauma Center and Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC. According to UMC CEO Mason VanHouweling, the decision to rename the street was made months before the One October shooting to reflect the life-changing and life-saving care provided at the UMC Trauma Center and Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC on a daily basis. “As Nevada’s only Level I Trauma Center, UMC remains committed to offering the highest level of care available to community members and visitors,” said VanHouweling. “The Southern Nevada medical community, including UMC, is in the business of providing hope to patients and their families. The new street signs for both Hope Place and Wellness Way serve as a daily reminder to all who enter our doors that hope and health are always at the forefront of our mission,” VanHouweling said.

  • Project Neon Public Meeting Scheduled For January 24Project Neon Public Meeting Scheduled For January 24

    LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is holding a public information meeting about Project Neon, which is a nearly $1 billion widening of Interstate 15 between Sahara Avenue and the U.S. 95 “Spaghetti Bowl” interchange. The project will add a flyover carpool bridge from south bound U.S. 95 to south bound I-15, plus create a full diamond interchange at Charleston Boulevard for easier access to downtown, the Medical District and Symphony Park. Other improvements call for a number of “ramp braids” that will reduce merge and weave traffic as well as turning Martin Luther King Boulevard into a feeder-like roadway paralleling the I-15. There will also be aesthetic and landscape upgrades, dynamic message signs and improved drainage, among other things. Learn more about the project schedule, design details, and traffic impacts. The meeting will be from 4 p.m.-7 p.m., Wednesday, January 24, 2018. A presentation will be made at 5:30 p.m. It will be held at the Historic Fifth Street School at 401 S. Fourth Street, Las Vegas, Nevada 89101. (Parking is available at the school as well as inside the city parking garage located just west of the school). NDOT said I-15 is the state’s busiest highway with 300,000 cars per day, or about one-tenth of Nevada’s population, with 25,000 lane changes per hour and three crashes per day. Traffic through the corridor is expected to double by 2035. Project Neon will revamp the stretch of highway to better accommodate the growing needs of local commuters and tourists while enhancing motorist safety. It will also reduce travel delays by 28 percent for a $110 million annual savings through increased productivity as well as improve air quality through less idle time and exhaust. The public is encouraged to attend. Comments may be submitted for the public record in writing at the meeting or verbally to a court reporter who will be present at the meeting. Written or emailed comments will be accepted through 5 p.m., May 27, 2016. Comments can be directed towards Dale Keller, project manager, 123 E. Washington Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89101; phone 702-671-4533, or email: dkeller@dot.state.nv.us

  • Brandon Marshall On Vikings-Eagles NFC ChampionshipBrandon Marshall On Vikings-Eagles NFC Championship

    By Matt Citak What a weekend of excitement in the NFC Divisional Round. First the Eagles put on a defensive show, limiting the Falcons to just 10 points en route to an upset win over Atlanta. Then the following day in Minnesota, we saw four lead changes in the final three minutes of the game, which ended with the “Minneapolis Miracle” and the Vikings booking themselves a trip to Philadelphia for the NFC Championship. In what will go down as one of the craziest games in NFL Postseason history, the Minnesota Vikings have made it back to the NFC Championship for the first time since the 2009 season, thanks to a last-second, 61-yard touchdown catch from Stefon Diggs. The miraculous season continues for Case Keenum and the Vikings, as the journeyman quarterback completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 318 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Minnesota’s 29-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints. However Minnesota couldn’t get much going on the ground, as Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combined to carry the ball 27 times for just 84 yards (3.1 yards per carry). The Vikings ranked seventh in the league with 122.3 rushing yards per game during the regular season, and will once again have their hands full on Sunday, as Philadelphia finished the year with the NFL’s top-ranked rushing defense, allowing just 79.2 rushing yards per game. The Eagles may have the league’s top rushing defense, but the Vikings defense is quite impressive in its own right. Minnesota’s defense ended the regular season ranked first in the NFL in total yards allowed (275.9) and points allowed per game (15.8), while finishing second in both passing yards allowed (192.4) and rushing yards allowed per game (83.6). The Saints had some success moving the ball against the Vikings defense on Sunday, as New Orleans gained 358 total yards on the day. But 278 of those yards came from the arm of future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. Minnesota did a tremendous job of limiting the running back pair of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, as the league’s best rushing duo combined for just 68 yards on 21 carries (3.2 yards per carry). The Eagles run game had been one of the best throughout the regular season, but Philadelphia’s drop in quarterback play from Carson Wentz to Nick Foles has had an affect on their rushing attack. The Philadelphia Eagles rode the superb play of their defense to a 15-10 upset win over the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons, who averaged 364.8 total yards per game during the regular season, were able to muster just 281 total yards of offense against Philadelphia’s defense. The Eagles were able to hold Matt Ryan in check, limiting last year’s league MVP to 210 yards and one touchdown on a 61.1 completion percentage. Philadelphia also did a good job of getting pressure on Ryan, finishing the game with three sacks and 11 QB hits. Atlanta did find some success running the ball against the NFL’s top rush defense, as Tevin Coleman was able to take 10 carries for 79 yards. However starting running back Devonta Freeman was completely shut down in Philadelphia, gaining only seven yards on 10 carries. Things won’t get any easier for Philadelphia this weekend, as the Vikings ranked within the top 11 in the NFL in total yards (356.9), passing yards (234.6), rushing yards (122.3), and points per game (23.9) during the regular season. While most believe this game will come down to the performance of the two defenses, the Eagles will need their offense to carry some of the load on Sunday. Philadelphia had one of the most successful rushing attacks throughout the regular season, averaging 132.2 rushing yards per game. But that was not the case in the Divisional Round against the Falcons. Running backs Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, and Corey Clement combined to carry the ball 25 times for just 78 yards (3.1 yards per carry) last weekend, as the running game was shut down in the most crucial of moments. Atlanta dared Nick Foles to beat them with his arm, and luckily for Philadelphia, the 28-year-old quarterback came through. Foles completed 76.7 percent of his passes for 246 yards against Atlanta’s solid pass defense, helping move the Eagles up and down the field to get them in scoring position. Philadelphia will need Foles to limit his mistakes against the Vikings, who will be looking to take advantage of any bad decision the quarterback makes on Sunday, if the Eagles want to win their second consecutive game as the underdog at home. INSIDE THE NFL guest analyst Brandon Marshall weighed in on this weekend’s NFC Championship game between the Vikings and Eagles. Marshall, along with Ray Lewis, Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason and James Brown break down this and other NFL storylines all season long each Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime’s Inside The NFL. Credit: Jamie Squire/Getty Images Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles – 6:40 PM ET Sunday CBS Local Sports: Atlanta had mixed results running the ball against the Eagles last weekend- Tevin Coleman found a lot of running room, while Devonta Freeman was completely shut down. How will the Vikings be able to establish the run game against Philadelphia’s top-ranked run defense? Brandon Marshall: The thing that makes the Vikings offense special is the offense [itself]. It’s not their passing attack or running game [specifically]- it’s all interconnected. It all works together. The passing plays look like running plays, and the running plays look like passing plays. A lot of teams will run an action pass, but they set up that play by using a running play that looks like that to get the defenders to step up to the line of scrimmage. [This is done] in order to get the space behind the linebackers and even the secondary at times. The thing that makes the Vikings offense special is the offense, and how everything looks the same. CBS Local Sports: Minnesota allowed Drew Brees to throw for almost 300 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday. How will the Vikings defense limit Nick Foles, who completed 76.7 percent of his passes for 246 yards against the Falcons? Brandon Marshall: That’s Drew Brees. One thing that we know is that Drew Brees throws it all over the field. Coach Payton and the Saints are not afraid to do that, and everyone knows that. Brees is special. This weekend is a totally different scheme and totally different ballgame. It will be a challenge for the Eagles to find holes in Minnesota’s defense. They run a lot of zone. They even play man-to-man. It’s going to be important for them to figure out what Minnesota’s doing pre-snap. If Nick Foles can do that, he’ll have a good chance of finding some holes. But it will be extremely hard [against the Vikings defense]. Credit: Abbie Parr/Getty Images CBS Local Sports: How can the Eagles defense slow down Case Keenum and this Minnesota offense that seems to be firing on all cylinders? Brandon Marshall: The game is not going to be won on the offensive side of the ball. It’s going to be a defensive battle [with two of the NFL’s best defenses]. Case Keenum, when he’s called on, makes some huge plays. He’s done it all year. But it shouldn’t be difficult for the Eagles to put a great game plan together to slow him down. CBS Local Sports: With the Eagles looking for their second consecutive upset win at home and the Vikings coming off the “Minneapolis Miracle,” does either team have an edge in momentum leading up to this NFC Championship showdown? Brandon Marshall: Not in momentum, but Philadelphia definitely has the edge [overall] because they have the home field advantage. They’re home, and [Lincoln Financial Field] is probably one of the most difficult places to play in the National Football League.

The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) will be working diligently to urge drivers to keep their eyes on the road and put away cell phones or other items that cause distractions. Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your cell phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your car, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system–anything that takes your attention away form the task of safe driving. You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing. “The Nevada Highway Patrol will be Joining Forces with local agencies to enforce distracted driving laws on our roads. Whether it’s a text message, phone call or having your breakfast behind the wheel, all forms of distracted driving will be targeted,” said NHP Trooper Jason Buratczuk. “Everything other than focusing on the road can take the backseat until you’ve arrived safely at your destination. Don’t let that text or call be your last, help us reach the goal of Zero Fatalities on Nevada’s roadways. It can wait, arrive alive!,” Trooper Buratczuk said.

  • Lawyer: Charges Possible in Connection With Vegas ShootingLawyer: Charges Possible in Connection With Vegas Shooting

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Charges could be filed in connection with the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, even though the gunman responsible for killing 58 people is dead, a lawyer for Las Vegas police told a judge Tuesday. Attorney Nicholas Crosby did not identify new evidence or suspects but said charges might be possible depending on the results of an ongoing investigation. Sheriff Joe Lombardo and the FBI have said they believe Stephen Paddock acted alone to carry out the Oct. 1 shooting that also injured hundreds before killing himself. “Without naming names, there are potential charges against others as a result of the ongoing investigation?” Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadish asked Crosby as he argued to keep police search-warrant records sealed. “Yes,” said Crosby, who represents the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which Lombardo leads. “There are charges being investigated.” The attorney declined outside court to say whom he referred to. Officer Laura Meltzer, a Las Vegas police spokeswoman, said the department is “investigating possible criminal charges related to items discovered during the service of search warrants.” She said she could not specify the type of charges or what was found without compromising the investigation. An FBI spokeswoman did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages. The judge did not order records released as requested by a lawyer representing media organizations, including The Associated Press. Cadish said she might review the documents before making them public. “It only makes sense that a party who is arguing that something has to be kept secret can’t fully explain in public why it has to be kept secret,” she said. Media companies are urging the judge to release documents showing what police told state judges to obtain search warrants immediately after identifying Paddock as the man who opened fire from a suite on the 32nd floor of a casino-hotel into a country music festival crowd below. Officials have not said and records released so far don’t show what motivated the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler. “Paddock planned the attack meticulously and took many methodical steps to avoid detection of his plot and to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation that would follow” the shooting, one federal court document said. A federal judge on Friday unsealed more than 300 pages of FBI warrant records justifying searches of Paddock’s properties in Reno and Mesquite, Nevada, along with vehicles and multiple email, Facebook and other internet accounts belonging to Paddock and his girlfriend, Marilou Danley. Danley, who was in the Philippines during the shooting, has been questioned by the FBI after returning to the U.S. Lombardo and Aaron Rouse, FBI agent in charge in Las Vegas, said in October that Danley wasn’t a suspect. But in an affidavit submitted to obtain an Oct. 6 warrant for Microsoft email accounts, an FBI agent wrote, “She has been identified thus far as the most likely person who aided or abetted Stephen Paddock.” An FBI spokeswoman said Friday that she could not comment about Danley. Her lawyer, Matthew Lombard in Los Angeles, did not immediately respond Tuesday to telephone and email messages. FBI warrant records note that Danley told investigators that they would find her fingerprints on bullets used during the attack because she would sometimes help Paddock load high-volume ammunition magazines. Other records showed that Danley received a wire transfer of money from Paddock while she was in the Philippines and that Danley deleted her Facebook account in the hours immediately after the shooting.

  • Keidel: Joy And Pain In MinnesotaKeidel: Joy And Pain In Minnesota

    By Jason Keidel If these NFL playoffs have provided us an acute reminder, it’s that not all losses are the same. Especially in New Orleans, where fans must feel knifed in the kidneys — or more vital organs — after arguably the worst loss in playoff history, in Minnesota on Sunday. If you didn’t see the play, Stefon Diggs ran an out pattern about 25 yards down on the right. He leaped for Case Keenum’s pass, would surely be tackled inbounds, then game over. With no timeouts left, the Vikings were at the mercy of an unforgiving clock, with too many yards to go. If you did watch the replay a few times you notice that not only did Marcus Williams whiff on Diggs, he also managed two swipe the legs out from the nearest defender, Ken Crawley, who may have had a chance to jump on Diggs had his teammate not flipped him like a bowling pin. Diggs landed, turned, planted his right hand on the ground to keep from falling, kept his right foot an inch from stepping out of bounds, saw no defenders, then dashed into history. And so a surefire, 24-23 win morphed into the most haunted 10 seconds since the Immaculate Reception. Imagine the savage swing in emotion, on both sides. But particularly for New Orleans, which was dominated in the first half. Minnesota jumped on the Saints and looked to be much the better team, up, 17-0. Then the Saints found their mojo, as did their future Hall-of-Fame QB Drew Brees, who led a furious charge to take that lead with 25 seconds left. The Saints went from ambushed and shellshocked, to crawling back, to muscling ahead, to wondering how cold it would be in Philadelphia this coming weekend. To Diggs. In the earlier game that day, the favored, hometown Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 45-42. But the Steelers gagged that game well before the clock drained dry, from awful fourth-down calls to a scalp-scratching onside kick with two timeouts and 2:18 on the clock. Jacksonville was just hungrier, better prepared, and better coached. >>MORE: Commentary from CBS Local Sports Voices The Saints churned their way back to the top, only to have their guts ripped out by a secondary that was so surprisingly good this year, and a catalyst for this year’s team revival. For about a decade, the Saints were little more than a cover band with a great singer, Drew Brees and the Afterthoughts. Then the Saints built a complete team with by far the best 2017 draft in the sport. Only to have that happen. And it begs, the question, one we’ve surely fielded from our friends or spouse or parents. Why do we put up with this? We love sports for the zero-sum finality of the final score. But we also sign up for this, the journey, the mood swings, the pain and pleasure and mystery, to have one side sure of loss and the other sure of gain, only to have 10 seconds jammed into a gridiron blender, and have the impossible poured onto the field. Neither franchise nor fanbase will forget a game like that. The stories will be passed like a baton down the generations. Where you were sitting, standing, shrieking, or crying when Diggs spun around and saw a free field before him, and the attendant horror and hysteria that came with that gallop to the goal line. Why do we not only tolerate this, but also love it, and need it? Why are we so tethered to a team swathed in a particular color, to a group of men who don’t know us, who say they play for fans but really bleed for the billions the NFL spends in collective salaries? As Chazz Palminteri said to the boy in A Bronx Tale, don’t bother to root for Mickey Mantle; he doesn’t pay your monthly nut. Why did I pack a Terrible Towel – an original, cotton fossil from 1978, when the Steelers had just three Super Bowl rings – to a party with other grown men who grew up with our beloved black & gold, only to sit in abject, brooding silence while the Jaguars tore us apart? We won’t admit it, but the pain is part of it. Part of the paradox, where pain and pleasure are the twin-cogs in the sports experience. We watched these games with our dads, and then become our dads. The Saints used to be the Aints, a team playing before a freckling of fans, many wearing paper bags on their heads. Then they got really good, won a Super Bowl, and were perilously close to playing in another. Just 10 seconds away. Only to see those 61 yards gobbled up by the Vikings. And as great as the Vikings and their fans feel, they have been to four Super Bowls and lost them all. They are one win from playing the first home game in the Super Bowl. But the chances are they will either lose in Philadelphia, or at home, in February. We won’t admit it, but after we gripe about the players and coaches who cost us a Super Bowl run this year, we will be back next year. The players change. The coaches change. The colors won’t. Neither will the pain, nor will our lifelong, masochistic need for more of it. Jason writes a weekly column for CBS Local Sports.

  • 23 Minors, 6 Adults Arrested in Vegas MLK Parade Melee23 Minors, 6 Adults Arrested in Vegas MLK Parade Melee

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — No one was seriously injured but more than two dozen people were taken into custody in Las Vegas after a fight broke out following the city’s annual parade honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Police said they had the situation under control shortly after a series of altercations in downtown Las Vegas about 4 p.m. Monday. The Las Vegas Sun reported the only person who required medical treatment was a man who apparently was punched in the lip. It’s not clear what started the fight that marred an otherwise peaceful celebration as thousands of people took to the streets for the parade off the Las Vegas Strip. “We’re celebrating one of the most magnificent human beings ever,” Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said at the parade with the theme, “Living the Dream: Building a Bridge to Unity.” Labor unions had their usual big presence on what would have been King’s 89th birthday, ahead of the 50th anniversary of his assassination in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968. Activists in northern Nevada made their 20th annual motorcade trek on a stretch of Reno freeway named after the slain civil rights leader. In Reno, parents helped children decorate dozens of cars for the traditional caravan with signs, flags and balloons led by some of the organizers of the campaign that helped designate part of U.S. 395 as the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Highway. Onie Cooper Jr., whose father was an early civil rights leader in Reno during the 1960s, remembered a darker day a half century ago when the segregated city was known as the “Mississippi of the West.” “It wasn’t a good place to be to be honest with you, I’m not going to sugarcoat it,” Cooper told KTVN-TV in Reno. Black performers couldn’t say or eat in most of the casinos where they performed back then. It wasn’t until the 1970s that discrimination ended legally in Nevada with the passing of the state’s Open Housing Law in 1971. “I try to think of the good things I went through, not so much the bad things to be honest with you,” Cooper said. “But yes, there was definitely racism here.” Las Vegas police didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment about the fight following the parade. Lt. Grant Rogers told KVVU-TV police received at least three calls from witnesses reporting fights had broken out after the parade on 3rd Street and Fremont Street. Rogers said police took multiple juveniles into custody after the first caller reported juveniles were involved in a fight. The second caller reported they had been punched in the face and requested medical assistance. He said the final caller reported about 100 people were pushing and shoving each other.
