What's Driving You Crazy? - Repaving a 10-mile stretch of Nellis Blvd

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) - Heads-up on an east valley project that may drive you crazy for a year-and-a-half.

The Nevada Dept of Transportation has announced plans to repave Nellis - from Tropicana on the south all the way up to Craig road on the north. That's a ten-mile stretch! No word about which end of Nellis they'll start the work on, but it's tentatively scheduled to get underway in late November stretching all the way to the middle of 2022.

The 26-million dollar project will also include upgrades at some of the major streets that cross Nellis: Sahara, Charleston and Bonanza.

Drivers will have at least two lanes in each direction during the work day, but only one lane from 8pm to 6am Sundays through Fridays.

I expect we'll talk more about this as the work gets closer - with plenty of reminders once the project kicks into gear.

Buckle up, drive carefully and - please - PUT DOWN THAT PHONE!... Read More

The occasion is expected to bring together the remaining eight justices for the first time since the building was closed in March and they resorted to meetings by telephone... Read More

PACIFICA, Calif. (KRON) - A mountain lion is roaming the streets of a neighborhood in Pacifica, California. The big cat was caught on video as it watched two kids who were riding bikes in the street over the weekend.

Later it jumped a fence and crouched under a neighbor's truck until it eventually ran away.

Residents say their neighborhood backs up to hills and a wooded area full of wildlife, Which is probably the reason the mountain lion is sticking around.

“I thought it was somebody's dog that had gotten into the yard and I was like, "hey get out of here! then it turned and that's when I was like, "oh my god! it's a mountain lion!" said Timothy Kerrisk.

He captured the mountain lion on video as it peered through his front gate, stalking children off of Mason Drive... Read More

PHOENIX (AP) — Democrat Joe Biden said Tuesday that Cindy McCain plans to endorse him for president, a stunning rebuke of President Donald Trump by the widow of the GOP's 2008 nominee.

Trump has had a fraught relationship with members of John McCain's family since he disparaged the Arizona senator during his 2016 campaign. But the McCains have stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals.

My husband John lived by a code: country first. We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There's only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is @JoeBiden... Read More
