Survey: Las Vegas is Growing and Residents Hopeful

LAS VEGAS -- Believe it or not, Las Vegas is growing. The new Las Vegas Perspective was released Tuesday detailing what parts of the valley grew, what shrank and where the city is going.

There's a lot of good news in the book. Surprisingly, the population grew despite the number of construction and other jobs lost.

The number of occupied houses also rose and so did the average household income.

The population surpassed 2 million in Clark County last year. All urban areas, with the exception of Boulder City, reported growth.

The average age in the valley is 36 and it's split almost 50-50 along gender lines.

Fifty-two-percent of residents are Caucasian, 28-percent are Hispanic, 9-percent are African American and 6-percent are Asian, along with a handful others.

Experts say most of the people surveyed are more concerned about health care and education than about the foreclosure crisis.

CCSD Wants Community Input on School Budget Cuts

LAS VEGAS -- Parents, students, teachers, and other community members are now weighing in on the tough issue of school budget cuts. An online survey will gauge where everyone feels the cuts should or should not be made.

The 16 question survey only takes a few minutes to fill out.  The questions deal with critical issues such as campus security, school transportation, teacher layoffs, and even closing schools.

Strong opinions are pouring in. Some of the questions come as little surprise and garner a mixed reaction. For example,  should sports and extra-curricular activities be eliminated to save a combined $11 million dollars?

"Let the kids be kids; let them have their sports," said one parent.

"Out of everything, maybe it is sports I would cut," said another person.

One Key Unlocks 600 HUD Houses in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- Las vegas is on the cutting edge of a new scam: People posing as real estate agents illegally collecting rental deposit money on government-owned homes.

One key gains access to around 600 empty homes in the federal HUD housing program. This creates a gaping hole for scam artists to walk right through.

"They could theoretically get into all 600 houses that we have," said HUD Director Kenneth Lobene. "It could be a problem. Hopefully the things that we're going to do will help to prevent that."

A Las Vegas woman was arrested last week for scamming a local man out of $500. She's accused of posing as a real estate agent, breaking into the government-owned home and posting it on Craigslist.

She allegedly stole rental deposit money from people interested in the deals she was offering.
