Multiple Lawsuits Filed in TB Outbreak at Summerlin Hospital

LAS VEGAS -- Summerlin Hospital is facing multiple lawsuits after the tuberculosis outbreak inside its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit this past summer.

The Southern Nevada Health District alerted thousands of people of the potential exposure after the deaths of a mother and infant because of the disease.

Now, nearly 200 people have signed on with a Las Vegas law firm saying they've been impacted by the hospital's poor practices.

The office at Callister and Associates looked like a day care Friday as families explained how they were needlessly and carelessly exposed to TB. They claim the hospital owes them something for their heartache.

"It has been very traumatic. First getting that letter and trying to deal with what that meant for her and what it means for us," Sara McWilliams, whose infant daughter was exposed to TB, said.

Cool at School: Robotics Program Shines at Cimarron Memorial

LAS VEGAS - The shelves are lined with first place trophies. The walls prominently display award banners. These accolades provide great motivation for Cimarron Memorial High School students who are working to build the next great robot.

"Being in robotics is like having a job and school. It's so time consuming, but it's really rewarding," said senior Wyatt Harwood.

The real work may be out on the floor, which looks more like a playroom.

"We start with prototyping. We brainstorm, white board. We all stand around it and throw ideas," Harwood said.

The students do not build rudimentary robots. The robots are built to compete against 5,000 schools from around the world.

Commercial Construction Market Improving

Tivoli Village October 2013

LAS VEGAS -- The predictions are out and 2014 looks like a promising year for commercial construction in Las Vegas.

2013 saw a number of groundbreakings, and the new year may bring even more. Experts say hot spots like the area in and around Summerlin, and also Green Valley, have seen less vacancies and more restaurants, offices and shops.

Some business leaders say the slow and steady growth in commercial construction is a turning point for the whole Las Vegas economy.

Leaders of CBRE, a major real estate investment firm, say no income tax, an abundant workforce, and an improving economy are propelling many big projects in the valley.

"In good locations, space is starting to get a little scarce, in inner city there is still a high vacancy rate," Senior Vice-President of CBRE Office Properties Randy Broadhead said.
