Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White dead at 74

Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White, whose horn-driven band sold more than 90 million albums and made hits like "September," ''Shining Star" and "Boogie Wonderland," died Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles, his brother Verdine said.

White, who was 74, suffered from Parkinson's Disease and had retreated from the public even as the band he founded kept performing.

"My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep," Verdine White, also a member of the band, told The Associated Press on Thursday. "While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life changing transition in our lives.

Wallet relief: Gas prices drop around the country

U.S. gas prices are at their lowest levels since 2009, according to GasBuddy.com.

Gas prices have continued their decline, falling below $1.80 per gallon which is low, but there's room for gas prices to continue to decline due to a weak seasonal demand.

According to GasBuddy.com's research, $1.79 a gallon, February's start at the pump is the cheapest February start since 2004. In the state of Nevada, we're averaging about $2.28 a gallon which is still pretty cheap, but nowhere near the middle states, averaging as low as $1.21 in some areas.

Other states still averaging over $2 a gallon:

Oregon ($2.01)

New York ($2.05)

Washington ($2.16)

Alaska ($2.39)

California ($2.58)

Hawaii ($2.63)

So what's causing the low gas prices?

Gas Buddy says while the price of crude oil has rebounded, high gasoline supply has so far prevented widespread increases in gas prices... Read More

Deadline approaches for KLAS-Cox deal

More than 300,000 households in southern Nevada that currently watch KLAS-TV Channel 8 will have to make other arrangements after Friday at midnight. That's when the KLAS signal will no longer be transmitted to all subscribers of Cox Cable.

Despite five months of negotiations with Cox Communications, no deal has been reached regarding what Cox should pay for re-transmitting Channel 8's programs, including next week's Super Bowl broadcast.

The cable company has gone on the offensive with statements about KLAS that KLAS General Manager Lisa Howfield calls "untrue and frankly offensive."

Howfield, who serves as general manager of Nevada's first and most honored television station, has heard just about enough trash talk from Cox Cable.

She says she would be remiss if she does not advise Channel 8 viewers who subscribe to Cox that they will lose the KLAS signal as of midnight Friday... Read More
