‘Merry Impeachmas’ sign sparks controversy in Mountains Edge neighborhood

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A ‘Merry Impeachmas’ sign has sparked quite the controversy in a Mountains Edge neighborhood.

The sign has been up for five days. Since then, the homeowner says her house has been egged and a rock was thrown through her window. 

“It really was about expressing our political sort of beliefs but not in an obscene or hateful type of way. We thought this was just a fun way to do that,” Samantha said. ​​

On Wednesday, Samantha said someone egged her house. 

“I was very surprised at the number of people who said you asked for this, this is what you deserve,” she said. “Someone actually said I’m surprised no one has shot at your house yet.”

She’s still cleaning up the yolk and the egg shells from her driveway.

​”We may not agree but this is unacceptable.”​

On Friday morning, someone threw a rock through her window... Read More

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — In 2007, a grateful patient kick started what would become a beloved Christmas tradition at the Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican San Martin Campus. The Christmas Village is a 1,500-piece display that brings a dose of holiday cheer to patients and visitors alike.

George and Gail Tomao donated more than 1,000 holiday figurines from their family collection to the hospital to express their gratitude for the nurses who took care of George during his stay. Gail was a retired nurse who recognized the professionalism in those providing her husband’s care.

Since its inception, donors have helped grow the display, with over 200 new pieces added in the years following. The glowing masterpiece is set amid a blanket of snow and star-filled night sky.
