On Thursday, Jade's grandfather, Phil Tucker, went to the site to collect the items for donation.

NORTH LAS VEGAS -- It's been nearly one month since the body of 10-year-old Jade Morris was discovered dumped in an undeveloped housing track near the 215 and N. Fifth Street.

For weeks, people have left toys in the cul-de-sac, where her body was found, as a memorial to Jade. On Thursday, Jade's grandfather, Phil Tucker, went to the site to collect the items. He is hoping the toys can bring happiness to other children. He plans to donate the items.

After Jade's body was found on Dec. 27, stuffed animals, cards, candles and flowers began appearing at the site. The items filled several large plastic bags. This was Tucker's third time to visit the site. He said he was shocked by the large outpouring of support from the community. He believes all the toys would have made Jade happy.

Steven Brooks

LAS VEGAS -- A Nevada lawmaker accused of threatening another legislator returned to Las Vegas Wednesday evening being pushed in a wheelchair.

Democratic Assemblyman Steven Brooks of North Las Vegas would not respond to a reporter's questions as he was being wheeled out of McCarran International Airport after arriving on a flight from Carson City, Nev.

When asked by a reporter if the situation seemed bizarre to him, he groaned. Brooks was accompanied by a woman and surrounded by legislative police officers.

Earlier in the day Brooks was ushered into a legislative police office when he arrived at the state Legislature in Carson City.

Like at the airport, Brooks was wearing a dark overcoat and hooded sweatshirt. He kept his head down, his face largely concealed, but walked with a cane. He was accompanied by some family members.

Kids in Need to Get More Meals from Safekey

Kids in Need to Get More Meals from Safekey


For some schoolchildren in southern Nevada, the meals they eat at school and Safekey after-school programs are their only nutrition.

With that difficult reality in mind, the Clark County School District, City of Las Vegas and Three Square Food Bank are partnering to expand food offerings at 44 Safekey sites in Las Vegas. 

The Las Vegas City Council approved an agreement with Three Square at Wednesday’s council meeting.

The program will expand a pilot program between the city, Three Square, and the school district started last year. The Safekey Snack Enhancement pilot program began at 15 Safekey sites, which were selected based on geographic area, program enrollment and the school’s Free and Reduced Lunch participation percentage.

Nevada Lawmaker Facing Threat Case Hospitalized

Steven Brooks

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police say a Nevada state Assembly member had a gun in his car when he was arrested during the weekend on allegations that he threatened at least one Assembly party leader.

North Las Vegas police Sgt. Tim Bedwell wouldn't disclose the caliber of the weapon that Democratic Assemblyman Steven Brooks had when he was arrested Saturday, or whether it was loaded.

The revelation came after Brooks' lawyer, Mitchell Posin said Brooks was hospitalized in Las Vegas for treatment of internal bleeding, possibly related to a pre-existing condition.

Brooks never went to Carson City, where reporters gathered for a 10 a.m. Tuesday news conference that Brooks had scheduled at his Assembly office.

Posin says Brooks is innocent and that there's more to the allegations than have been reported so far.

Posin isn't providing details.
