LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – A day after a woman was killed outside a Dotty’s Gaming and Spirits in Spring Valley, many told 8 News Now they were concerned about a recent spike in crime in the area .

“It’s very scary,” said Southwest Valley resident Rose Shelman.

On Wednesday night, police said the manager of Dotty’s Gaming and Spirits at Jones Boulevard and Flamingo Road was run over and killed after confronting a man who stole a customer’s purse.

Then on Thursday morning, authorities said a U.S. Postal Service carrier was robbed on the street near Twain Avenue and Arville Street.

“I grew up here half my life,” Tabatha Moses told 8 News Now of the area. “I went to school here, and it just changed.”

It’s disturbing to see any of these things happen, but since they happened back to back, many who live nearby don’t know what to expect moving forward.

“It’s crazy, a lot of stuff here in Las Vegas,” Shelman said. “I know where I’m staying in the community is quiet, but when you walk through the door, you never know what it’s going to be like.”

According to statistics from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, crime in the Southwest Valley has seen a major increase, with robberies in the area doubling from this time in 2021.

Those who spoke with 8 News Now said the information made them think twice as they take care of themselves and those they love.

“It’s just very scary, it’s scary living in the world these days,” Moses concluded. “You’re supposed to feel safe.”

Authorities told 8 News Now that the US Postal Service carrier that was robbed was fine.

As for the man accused of running over and killing a woman outside Dotty, police are still looking for him.

He was last seen driving a stolen black Mercedes GL5 with license plate 565T77.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact LVMPD Homicide at 702-828-3521 or homicide@lvmpd.com. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or crimestoppersofnv.com.

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Residents of Spanish Trails Country Club are outraged by the cruelty to animals in the neighborhood.

They said the geese that roam the neighborhood are being killed and they are organizing a movement to stop it.

“Literally, they brutally slaughtered almost the entire population of Canadian geese,” said resident Dana Souter.

Souter has been a resident for 8 years, but said life inside the community is far from heavenly now.

“The atrocities happening in my garden are outrageous, torturing and killing animals is shameful,” she continued. “I am drained and disgusted. Everything happens in my garden and I want to shed light on it so that it does not happen again.

Neighbors shared graphic videos showing how some of the animals were treated.

Souter said it was legal to do so to avoid property damage, and other residents said it was animal cruelty and too difficult to see.

“Hundreds, this time last year, you’d see Canadian geese all over the place with their goose, and today we’re up to about five to six in the entire community,” she said.

8 News Now was invited to the neighborhood by Souter to view the lack of geese, but management prevented us from taping, adding that they had no comment on the situation.

“Spanish Trails Country Club did indeed have a permit to remove geese and is currently investigating whether or not the requirements of that permit were met,” the Nevada Department of Wildlife said in a statement. “At this time, the license is suspended.”

After 35 years, Water Valley Golf Club has changed ownership and big changes are afoot.

“You will see dramatic improvements throughout the place.” he said.

The clubhouse, pro shop and snack bar are currently undergoing extensive renovations. All three areas are undergoing a major interior and exterior overhaul.

The course itself is also being improved, according to Darby.

“The future aspiration is to change the design of some of the holes, which allows better access for people to the clubhouse,” he said.

Darby arrives in Water Valley after a stint at Cochrane Golf Club. He was a golf instructor in the British Army and is in his final year of studying for a golf management degree.

The new owners are Pat Thomas, a businessman living in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Jeremy Dueck of Bearspaw. Under new ownership, Water Valley will be a semi-private course, meaning it will be open to the public as well as paying members.

For youngsters looking to learn the game, Water Valley offers junior golf performance camps from May 16 to June 20, June 27 to July 25, and August 8 to September 12. Classes are held Mondays from 4-7 p.m. and cost $120 or $260. for all three camps. Juniors will learn to improve their swing, short game and mental fundamentals. They will also learn training tips to improve mobility, core stability, strength, speed and power.

The Bureau of Land Management began its federal review of the proposed Greenlink West Transmission project on May 1.

The Greenlink West project is a system of approximately 474 miles of new 525 kilovolt (kV) and 345 kV overhead power transmission lines and includes transmission and distribution lines, substations, micro-radio facilities waves, amplification sites, access roads and constructions/yard materials.

The project will run from Las Vegas to Reno through Clark, Nye, Esmeralda, Mineral, Lyon, Storey and Washoe counties, according to the BLM website. It would be built on 13,767 acres of land.

The transmission line will impact the habitat of the desert tortoise, sage-grouse, pronghorn, golden eagle and many other species, according to Basin and Range Watch, a nonprofit that advocates for the conservation of deserts in Nevada and California.

“It will end up destroying several archaeological sites in its path. The project will build multiple transmission towers nearly 200 feet tall and will be highly visible from Lake Walker, Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument, the Amargosa River, Fort Churchill State Historic Park and several private properties. said Basin and Range in a press release.

Multiple microwave towers, new roads and associated facilities would be added to the landscape, the nonprofit organization said. The project would be built within the boundary of the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument and would impact several paleontological sites.

The Greenlink West project will build three large substations designed to connect several thousand acres of utility-scale solar power to the grid.

To date, approximately 230 square miles of utility-scale solar applications have been filed in association with the Greenlink West transmission project.

These apps are adjacent to Death Valley National Park and next to Rhyolite Ghost Town, Desert Tortoise Habitat, Pronghorn Breeding Habitat, Joshua Tree Habitat, Multiple Sites archaeological sites and near small communities like Beatty that depend on tourism for their economy, Basin and Range said.

The line will connect to natural gas plants in Apex and eventually carry electricity north to major technology plants in the Reno area.

“This transmission project will open the Pandora’s box land rush of massive energy proposals that will permanently destroy the state’s natural and cultural resources,” said Kevin Emmerich, co-founder of Basin and Range Watch. “Green energy is less destructive when used on previously developed sites and urban areas.”

The Greenlink West project scoping period will be 30 days.

The deadline for comments is June 1, 2022.

You can submit feedback or project-related resource information through one of the following methods:

Thousands of residents of villages in northern New Mexico have been ordered to evacuate as high winds push the largest active US bushfire towards their drought-scorched mountain valley.

Winds gusting to more than 64 km / h blew embers more than a kilometer before the fire to start new fires on Sunday as crews battled to stop the flames entering Mora, about 65 km away northeast of the state capital, Santa Fe.

It’s part of a chain of farming communities in the path of the Calf Canyon Fire, the most destructive of a dozen fires in the southwestern United States scientists say are more widespread and coming earlier this year due to climate change.

“Where are we supposed to run, where are we going?” asked Darlene Gallegos, co-owner and manager of the local Mora Farmers Market, the last grocery store to remain open in the farming community of about 1,000 people.

Twenty miles south at the other end of the 42,100 hectare megafire, residents of Las Vegas, New Mexico were told to prepare for evacuation on Sunday as winds pushed the fire to less than eight miles from homes near Highway 25, according to local authorities.

Crews bulldozed firewalls west and north of the historic Wild West town of 14,000 to protect ranches, rural homes and the United World College in the village of Montezuma, the official said. Fire Chief Todd Abel during a briefing.

“We’re just gritting our teeth there will be thousands of people affected,” San Miguel County Deputy Executive Jesus Romero said.

When asked if the whole city would be asked to evacuate, Romero said that could happen on Monday when the winds are expected to shift and blow east.

Burning since April 6 about 30 miles east of Santa Fe, the blaze has destroyed more than 300 properties and forced the evacuation of dozens of villages and settlements in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

From April 13 to May 15, Northern Stage Theater Company presents “Monty Python’s Spamalot” – a musical adapted from the beloved film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” – as part of its 2021-2022 season. The tale is a parody of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail, with nods to the history of musical theater and feel-good ballads. In the play, King Arthur and his knights are sent on a mission by the elusive Lady of the Lake to first find the Holy Grail and then put on a Broadway show.

Stacia Nugent ’23 and Sophia Serpas ’24 starred in the set while Betty Faul-Welfare ’23 worked on the show’s lighting design with Theater Department Chairman Dan J. Kotlowitz. Theater teacher Carol Dunne directed the show and is also artistic director of the Northern Stage production.

“Spamalot” is one of the silliest shows in musical theatre, bringing the humorous energy of Monty Python to the stage. The setting changes often, ranging from the castles of France to the reimagined Camelot in Las Vegas.

“This spectacular and very silly show is more than just eye-catching – it’s a Valentine’s Day for all that we love about musical theatre,” Dunne wrote in a statement from the show’s schedule. “We’ve got tap dancers for you, ninjas, love songs and nods to musical theater history.”

Nugent, who performs on the show with professionals as part of her “e-term” experiential learning program, plays multiple characters in the ensemble.

“My roles range from monk to knight of Ni,” Nugent said. “Because of this, I have quite a few quick changes, which means I have to get creative. If you see a group of religious monks walking around with Bibles in their hands, know that at least one of them wears a full Camelot Turret Girl outfit underneath.

Constant location changes are one of the driving factors in lighting design decisions. Kotlowitz pointed out that the lighting makes the scenery changes between Camelot and Finland clear to the audience.

“You’re in the middle of a King Arthur play, and then all of a sudden they burst into Fiddler on the Roof,” Kotlowitz said. “The lighting kind of helps make those transitions visual. There are times when suddenly you’re in a disco, and playing with these different styles has been rewarding.

While “Spamalot” is a silly show by nature, Northern Stage’s professional setting demands seriousness and decorum when performing with the cast. Both Nugent and Serpas reflected on the professionalism of their e-term experience.

“This is my first full in-person production since the pandemic began,” Serpas said. “Also, it was really cool to work alongside professional actors and get a glimpse of how people make their careers out of it.”

Nugent clarified that the unconventional nature of the show helps him grow as an artist.

“Of course, ‘Spamalot’ is a silly show that definitely doesn’t take itself seriously, but I’ve observed that to credibly live in its silliness, I not only have to be comfortable with who I am, but becoming willing to share all of this without fear of judgment or condemnation — no matter how strange or unconventional it may seem by societal standards,” Nugent said.

However, Nugent added that the electronic term has also been physically and mentally challenging, noting that he sometimes felt inadequate when surrounded by such accomplished actors.

“As I watch my beautiful cast mates sing melodiously and dance along on stage, it’s hard not to be amazed,” Nugent said. “But every time I find myself sharing the stage with these professionals, I feel like, well, an impostor. Part of me feels guilty and unworthy to be with them, and I can’t help but feel like I’m ruining scenes we share. Also, I find it hard not to downplay my abilities.

The musical is filled with nods to the musical theater canon: Joseph Stein’s “Fiddler on the Roof,” Stephen Sondheim’s “Company,” and references to famous Broadway divas like Liza Minnelli. In Act 2, the Lady of the Lake, a parody of Guinevere played by Michelle Beth Herman, laments “Whatever happened to me”, playing in the trope of Minnelli, a notorious prima donna. She complains about the “producers” and throws herself enviously into the audience. At one point, the show’s stage managers make an appearance and Herman criticizes them, playing the “difficult” Broadway diva trope.

“One of my favorite parts of the show is how it’s a caricature of theater culture and the canonical works of what we consider American musical theatre,” Kotlowitz said. “I liked that we could kind of poke fun at ourselves that way. It is an erased but joyful work.

The musical attempts to capture the many sub-communities of the theater itself. Songs like “His Name is ‘Lancelot'” and “You Won’t Succeed on Broadway” allude to the theater’s robust LGBTQ+ and Jewish artistic communities, respectively.

“There are a lot of aspects of theater that the show touches on — the people who have historically contributed to it and the general working environment of musical theater,” Kotlowitz said.

While touching on theatrical culture, the performers also made relevant jokes for the people of the Upper Valley. During the show, the cast chose an audience member to find the Holy Grail. King Arthur, played by Jonas Cohen, asked the viewer’s name and said he was one of the “good people in the Upper Valley, next to Bernie Sanders and Ben and Jerry”.

More than anything, the humor of the “Spamalot” performers created an energetic and lively atmosphere. The Northern Stage audience went wild at almost every joke and lighting change.

“It’s impossible to work on ‘Spamalot’ and not have ‘Always Look at the Bright Side of Life’ stuck in your head,” Dunne said, referring to one of the show’s recurring songs. .

With triple-threat performers, the humor of Monty Python, a bit of satire and the intimate space of the Northern Stage theater company, “Spamalot” managed to poke fun at musical theatre, tell the story of the Saint Grail with a touch of Broadway and to bring joy to an audience in the Upper Valley.
