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.

New Trial Date set in Off-Duty Las Vegas Police Murder

LAS VEGAS -- A new trial date has been set for six alleged gang members in the slaying of an off-duty Las Vegas police officer during what authorities say was a botched robbery at his house.

Last week Clark County District Court Judge David Wall said that trial wouldn't begin Feb. 16 for Prentice Marshall, Saul Williams Jr., Quadrae Scott, Adrian Pena and brothers Michael Ferguson and Emmitt Ferguson.

Trial is now set for Feb. 7, 2011. A hearing is set for Feb. 24 on motions to dismiss the case. All six defendants have pleaded not guilty to charges in the Nov. 19 slaying of Trevor Nettleton. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Williams and Marshall. Scott and Pena also face murder, conspiracy, burglary and robbery charges.

The Fergusons are accused of being accessories after the slaying
