Clark County School District Police cracking down on bad drivers through social media

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County School District Police Department is cracking down on bad drivers, especially those breaking the law in school zones. Instead of just a fine for the crime, you can expect a shout-out on social media.

initiative last month. While some view it as shaming, he says the purpose is to engage

Nevada readying return to state-run health insurance website

LAS VEGAS (AP) — After relying on the federal HealthCare.gov website for five years, Nevada officials are preparing to switch back to a state-run insurance website where people can shop for and enroll in health coverage.

The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, the state agency that oversees Nevada’s marketplace, says people can start logging into their accounts on the new website, nevadahealthlink.com as of Wednesday... Read More
