Henderson to Turn into Tropical Paradise

HENDERSON, Nev. -- The City of Henderson is set to transform into a tropical paradise in September. The 20th annual Prince Jonah Kuhio Ho'olaule'a Pacific Islands Festival will be held September 11 and 12 at the Henderson Events Plaza on Water Street.

The Ho'olaule'a Pacific Islands Festival features all things Hawaiian, Tahitian and Polynesian from leis to hula dancing and much more. The event will also showcase more than 100 exotic food and craft vendors along with two stages of live entertainment.

Last year, more than 40,000 people attended the festival. A portion of the proceeds will help fund the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club Founders Scholarship which supports Hawaiians in their quest to attain higher levels of education.

I-Team: Boulder City Man Loses Insurance Because of His Dog

Meet Olivia, the Akita. She's not quite 6-years-old, but already packing quite a life story. An early accident led to a hip replacement. A run in with a pit bull left her with a mutilated ear. And when her owner Jeff Good moved into their Boulder City home five years ago, Olivia had an encounter with burglars who broke in.

"We found a piece of a blue jean chunk laying on the floor where she had ripped his back end out and drips of blood all the way back to the window where, you could tell, she put him back out the same window he came in," said Good.

Explosive Demonstration Gets Safety Message Out

BOULDER CITY, Nev. -- They're beautiful and light up the night sky, but law enforcement are on the watch for the misuse of fireworks this Fourth of July. The gunpowder inside can easily be ignited, causing serious injury, even death.

A training class for law enforcement was held Friday in Boulder City. It was also open to the public. Local law enforcement doesn't deal with explosives on a frequent basis so this was an opportunity to learn how to handle those materials safely.

Whether it's an innocent experimentation by kids or an organized attack, police must be on alert. Gunpowder can easily be turned into an explosive device that can do serious harm. Law enforcement says the best way to educate, is to show how easily things can blow up. More than 15 explosive devices were set off.
