School zoning proposals prompt heated debate - Las Vegas Sun

More at Las Vegas Sun: “Hundreds of Henderson parents and a few high school students were at Foothill High School Monday night to voice opinions on the school district's attendance zoning proposals for elementary and high schools.

For more than a month, members of the Clark County School District Attendance Zone Advisory Commission have been looking at possibly changing school boundaries for Sue Morrow, C.T. Sewell and Robert Taylor elementary schools. Changes to the zoning boundaries for Coronado, Foothill, Green Valley, Liberty and Silverado high schools are also on the table.

The commission will decide at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday which proposals or combination of proposals will be accepted as recommendations. Those recommendations will be presented to the School Board Feb. 24 and March 3.”

35,000 CityCenter Job Applicants for 12,000 Jobs - Las Vegas Sun

More at Las Vegas Sun: “Shellshocked from months of fruitless searching, job seekers showed up Monday with scrubbed faces and sharp suits at a large building behind the Mirage.

As many as 700 people per day will enter the building to await a turn with CityCenter human resources staffers, who will hire a Las Vegas record of more than 12,000 people over the next several months.

CityCenter likely broke another record last week, receiving about 35,000 online applications in less than seven days.

There wasn’t any good or bad news on Monday. Staffers made sure the online applications were filled out properly and determined whether the candidates are seeking the most appropriate jobs. The positions will be filled in August.”

-- As I said to a friend, this is the shot in the arm Vegas needs: a building boom at the right time.
