Hole 11, Revere Golf Club at Anthem (Lexington course)
Hole 11, Revere Golf Club at Anthem (Lexington course)

LAS VEGAS -- If holes-in-one represent golf perfection, par fives that are longer than six football fields strung together from goal line to goal line are the stuff that can leave plenty of room for disaster. They can turn a decent round into the aggravation one gets from losing luggage at an airport or seeing your last dollar disappear in a vending machine without getting that bag of chips in return. If your tee shot doesn't find the fairway, you could spend a week on one of these holes.

Henderson Police Search for So-Called Plaid Bank Robber

A suspect that Henderson Police have dubbed the plaid bank robber has struck again.

The man was wearing a plaid shirt when he robbed a US Bank branch inside a Smith’s Food and Drugs store at 830 S. Boulder Highway Wednesday. Henderson Police say this is the second bank he has robbed in five days.

The suspect was wearing a plaid shirt and plaid baseball hat when he robbed an America First Credit Union at 370 N. Stephanie Street Friday.

In the most recent case, the suspect approached a teller and handed her a note demanding money. The teller took money from her cash drawer and gave it to the suspect. After getting the cash, the suspect took the note back from the teller and left the store.

The suspect never showed a weapon.

ACLU: CCSD Didn't Protect Bullied Students

LAS VEGAS -- The American Civil Liberties Union filed discrimination complaints Wednesday against the Clark County School District claiming the district failed to take appropriate action to protect two harassed students at Greenspun Junior High School.

The complaints were filed with the Nevada Equal Rights Commission. The Nevada chapter of the ACLU claims  two boys were bullied by other students for their perceived sexual orientation. According to the complaint, school officials did not take any action, even after one of the boy's parents contacted the school.

Amanda Fulkerson, Chief Communications Officer for CCSD, said district officials had not seen the complaint yet. She issued the following statement:

"Student safety is the top priority of the District. We will review this issue and will work with the students, parents and administrators to investigate what happened on the campus that led to the lawsuit."
