Driving You Crazy: Visibility at Reunion and Anthem

HENDERSON, Nev. - A Henderson resident says it’s nearly impossible to turn right onto Anthem Parkway from eastbound Reunion Drive. A large community sign blocks the view of many drivers. The viewer asks if the sign can be moved to improve visibility.

Henderson officials say traffic engineers have reviewed this location several times. The city states there is enough distance to safely turn onto the roadway, despite the sign.

Henderson traffic engineers say the sign is at least 350 feet outside the travel lane. They say that's enough room for drivers to make a safe turn when turning right on red.

They also suggest if a driver feels uncomfortable turning on red, the driver should wait until the signal turns green before proceeding.

Henderson are, however, addressing a hedge that is located next to the sign that could restrict visibility.

City officials contacted the community association and asked to have the hedge removed.

Cory Quenzler

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Two men are facing more charges after police linked them to a series of burglaries in Anthem and the Green Valley Warm Springs Road area.

Henderson police shutter substation service desks

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) -- Henderson police have closed service desks at two satellite police offices until more officers are hired.

The department says desk services are still available from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week including holidays at the main police station on Lead Street behind City Hall.

Desks are closed at the west substation on Green Valley Parkway near the Henderson Multigenerational Center and the north station on Sunset Road east of Boulder Highway.

Department spokeswoman Kathleen Richards says the move puts more officers on the street.

Plans call for resuming satellite desk services next summer, after a new class of police recruits completes academy work and field-training.

Richards says the department has also handled more than 5,000 online police reports since an internet reporting system began in October 2011.

DA finds police justified in man's killing

LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County District Attorney's Office has determined police officers were reasonable and justified when they shot and killed Southaly Ketmany in July 2013.

“The police officers' attempts to end the confrontation peacefully were ignored by Mr. Ketmany who was armed with a hammer and knife when he charged at the officers, leaving them no choice but to defend themselves,” District Attorney Steve Wolfson said.

Ketmany, a resident of Sacramento, was visiting family and friends in Las Vegas when he went missing and turned up in the home of a person he did not know. That resident called police. Prior to the shooting, police attempted to subdue Ketmany with a Taser and rubber bullets which were not successful.
