Clark County warns residents of 'award letter' scam

Clark County is warning residents of a scam circulating around the valley area.

The county said residents are being sent a letter telling them to contact an agent because they have won a prize totaling $750,000. The return address on the letter lists the Clark County Treasurer and the address of the Clark County Government Center, but county officials say the letter is bogus.

"This letter was not generated by our office," said Assistant Treasurer Rebecca Coates. "We only found out about it when some of the letters were returned to our office. We've alerted the Nevada Attorney General's Office and the U.S. Postal Inspector. Those who receive the letter should not respond to it."

Highly contagious dog flu spreading across country

LAS VEGAS -- Flu season doesn't only affect people, it also affects man's best friend.  A vaccine resistant flu-like virus -- capable of killing dogs -- is spreading out of the Midwest and veterinarians are bracing for it in southern Nevada. 

Canine influenza is a lot like the human flu. It spreads easily and can damage your dog's health quickly. It has sickened thousands of dogs in the Midwest.

Ella May enjoys a rainy day at Sunset dog park. It's a chance for her to mingle with other dogs.

"I can't deny her that," said Mary Meduna, Ella May's owner. "She is high energy and needs to be out and about."

A few weeks ago, Meduna noticed Ella May was not her normal energetic self and she was sniffling.

"I took her to the vet after a couple days of doing that because she wasn't getting any better," Meduna said. "I thought I'd better have her checked out."

It turns out Ella May was suffering with allergies.

Wanted: New chopper for Metro Search and Rescue

 LAS VEGAS -- The warmer weather has drawn more locals and tourists to hiking spots around the valley, but more and more people are also getting injured and stranded during their hikes.

"It's definitely life and death every time we come out here,” said Sgt. Nate Anderson, Las Vegas Search And Rescue.

So far this year, Metro's Search and Rescue team has been deployed 59 times at about $460 an hour; that's how much the agency says it cost to launch the chopper each time.

Metro said the rescue helicopters were built in the 70's, so each helicopter is around 40 years old.

"Obviously, it's been kept up, and it looks really good, but we're talking about a 40-year-old aircraft,” said Sgt. Anderson.

The agency said it needs a new helicopter. Clark County has previously always picked up the tab for rescue helicopters, despite the fact that most rescues happen on federal land.
