Cannery Casino Provides Teachers A Free Lunch

What you've heard about the free lunch, may not true. About 50 teachers from Jacob E. Manch Elementary School received a complimentary meal on Thursday. 

The teacher appreciation luncheon happens every year, underwritten by the Cannery Casino Hotel, to thank the teachers for supporting and enriching their young students throughout the year, and also to celebrate the beginning of summer!

While June 9 is the last day of school, many Manch Elementary teachers will continue their education during the summer. Some will take additional college credits and others will undergo standardized training on teaching the Common Core curriculum.

Before dismissing their students, teachers emphasized the importance of reading over the summer.  

Air Mission School Wraps Up Final Mission

Air Mission School Wraps Up Final Mission

The Air War Weapons School held their final mission Wednesday at Nellis Air Force Base

The exercise ended a six-month Weapons School Graduate Course at the base. The exercise gave students a chance to practice the skills they've been working on for months.
For the exercise, about 90 aircraft and about 5,000 personnel from both the Air Force and the Navy took part in a staged battle at the Nevada Test and Training Range. The exercise required bombers, transportation, command and control, refueling, fighter and surveillance aircraft to work together to accomplish the mission's goals.

"The Air Force is moving toward more ground support missions, so it is important to train thoroughly to accomplish them, as well as be prepared for any air-to-air scenarios we might face," said Maj. Kurt Helphinstine, Weapons School mission employment project officer.

Weapons School Offers Taste of Real Life Combat

LAS VEGAS - The planes are fast and furious. At night when they launch, it is an impressive sight - especially when the after-burners light up in the dark.

Behind the controls are students and instructors from the U.S. Air Force Weapons School, widely described as the premier post-graduate air training in the world.

The Mission Employment Phase going on in the sky above Nevada this week is a simulation of what to do when you're squaring off against the enemy. The skills acquired in exercises like these are critical to keeping the country safe.

"What the students are learning is absolutely critical to our nation's defense," said Nellis Air Force Base 2nd Lt. Kenneth Lustig. "The information that they learned the last six months at the weapons school is being put to the test here during this exercise, and it's going to be what they take into combat when they (fly) in the future."
