More Come Forward Alleging Doctor was Inappropriate

LAS VEGAS -- Dr. Karl Fazekas has been accused of sexually assaulting two female patients.

Court documents detail two separate incidents: one in which he's accused of fondling a senior citizen heart patient who went to the hospital complaining of chest pains. Reports on the second show a woman went to his office for back pain and tingling in her legs, but Dr. Fazekas began examining her pubic area.

Fazekas awaits trial on criminal charges, including attempted sexual assault, coercion and lewdness. Two alleged victims claim Fazekas was not doing what he was supposed to.

In a report, patients claim the doctor did not pay attention to the ailments they were there for, but that the doctor's actions were sexual in nature.

Muslim Group Says FBI Still on Nevada Prayer Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Muslim advocacy group representative accused the FBI on Monday of wrongly questioning five Muslim men in the Los Angeles area about praying in a shopping center parking lot in southern Nevada six months ago.

Council on American-Islamic Relations attorney Ameena Mirza Qazi in Los Angeles said she was concerned that federal investigators still think the men detained last December by Henderson police were "plotting something or were some sort of suspicious group."

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller in Los Angeles said the men were interviewed by FBI agents "to clarify routine reports of suspicious activity" and were not arrested.

"None of the men have been accused of wrongdoing," Eimiller said.

Qazi, head of the CAIR Los Angeles chapter, dubbed the men the "Henderson 7." She said five of the men were questioned at their homes Thursday morning.

$103 Million for Troubled Nevada Homeowners

LAS VEGAS -- Nevada is one of five states that will get more than $100 million to help with the housing crisis. It is part of the so called "hardest-hit fund."

While a lot of homeowners want this money, not everyone will qualify. The foreclosure prevention program is designed to help families in states hit hardest by the housing downturn. With housing prices here plummeting, and families unable to pay their monthly notes, the government hopes it will bring much needed relief to homeowners who've exhausted their options.

"I went to my bank to try to get modifications. I went through the government programs, through Fanny Mae, Freddie Mac, and I went through the 888 housing help line on the Nevada foreclosure site," said Georgia Richardson, who is now selling her home.

More than 2 Million Cribs Recalled

WASHINGTON  -- More than 2 million cribs from Evenflo, Delta Enterprise Corp. and five other companies were recalled Thursday amid concerns that babies can suffocate, become trapped or fall from the cribs.

Most of the cribs were drop-sides, which have a side rail that moves up and down so parents can lift children from them more easily. That movable side, however, can malfunction or detach from the crib, creating a dangerous gap where babies' heads can become trapped, leading to suffocation or strangulation.

The other companies involved in the recall were Child Craft, Jardine Enterprises, LaJobi, Million Dollar Baby and Simmons Juvenile Products.

Group Trying to Bring Jobs to Nevada

LAS VEGAS -- Nevada now has the highest unemployment rate in the nation at 14-percent. With many Las vegas area residents on the verge of losing their unemployment benefits, one state agency is trying unusual ways to bring jobs to Nevada.

The Nevada Development Authority says they're trying a guerilla marketing campaign. They're trying to convince business owners in other states to move to Nevada with unique TV ads. Those jobs can't come soon enough for those on the edge of homelessness.

Those looking at the postings at JobConnect find slim pickings. That includes Debra Cir, who lost her job at Clark County's Safekey program. "Finding jobs at my age is really hard because they want someone young and someone they can mold and they figure I'm already molded and set in my ways," she said.
