HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The southern Nevada city of Henderson has joined the chorus of voices condemning the U.S. Energy Department's secret shipment of weapons-grade plutonium to a federal site north of Las Vegas.
Mayor Andy Hafen will join us for a one on one to discuss the latest efforts to bring sports to the City of Henderson. We ask how it will be paid for, how many jobs it will create and if the folks in Henderson even want it.
The Pittman Wash in Henderson is home to various wildlife species as well as hiking trails that are maintained by a non-profit volunteer group called Project Green who fought to make the area a clean and vibrant public asset. But, the City of Henderson is planning to put a concrete channel in the wash to prevent flood waters from damaging nearby homes and causing costly future damage.
