Henderson approves plans for Hindu temple in rural neighborhood https://fivecountyfair.org/henderson-approves-plans-for-hindu-temple-in-rural-neighborhood/ Wed, 05 Oct 2022 06:29:00 +0000 https://fivecountyfair.org/henderson-approves-plans-for-hindu-temple-in-rural-neighborhood/

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) — It was a marathon reunion at Henderson City Hall on Tuesday night. The heated debate lasted for hours: should a Hindu temple be built in a rural district? The response from Henderson City Council – yes – but not unanimously.

“It’s just a zoning issue. It’s not a religious issue, said Mike Anderson, who lives near where the temple would be built near Kiel Street and Berlin Avenue next to Lake Mead Parkway in a rural part of Henderson. .

“We don’t have a sewage system here, only septic tanks. We have no streetlights or sidewalks, very few road signs and several streets are dead ends. This complex should be built on property designed for this type of facility,” Anderson argued.

Dozens of neighbors near the proposed temple site showed up to the meeting wearing matching orange shirts to show their opposition, saying it would cause traffic and noise, which would rob them of their quiet way of life like climbing riding around the neighborhood.

“I moved there because of the rurality…I get out of my yard and there I’m free to ride where I want,” said one woman.

The American Hindu Association is applying for a permit to build a Hindu temple, a multi-purpose hall, and residences for priests and pilgrims on five acres of land.

“We would like to have a temple so we can have our yoga session, meditation as we get older…we Indians are very quiet people…we love people,” one supporter said. Henderson City Attorney Nicholas Vaskov briefed the council on the federal law protecting religious groups.

“Religious institutions often face both subtle and overt discrimination in zoning, especially newer, smaller, and unknown religious groups and minority denominations,” Vaskov said at the meeting.

“The city is in a very difficult position,” suggested Councilman Dan Shaw. Shaw expressed concerns about the possibility of a lawsuit regardless of how the council decided to vote.

“The one thing that concerns me the most … is whether we will be prosecuted by the Department of Justice,” Shaw said.

After a permit to build the temple was approved, opponents told FOX5 they would now take the matter to court.

“As Shaw has made very clear, he is being sued one way or another, so having a judge review the case on record is the next step,” revealed Autumn Hood, who lives near of where the temple will be built.

Councilwoman Michelle Romero was the only one not to vote, all other Henderson City Council members voted to approve the temple.

Those behind the Hindu temple agreed to make changes to their original design to better suit the neighborhood, including lowering a 6ft wall around the property, reducing the height of the main temple building and reducing the number of parking spaces.

The council said it would review the temple occupancy certificate in a year.

Countdown to the Las Vegas Bowl: Could it be LSU-Oregon? https://fivecountyfair.org/countdown-to-the-las-vegas-bowl-could-it-be-lsu-oregon/ Tue, 04 Oct 2022 03:13:00 +0000 https://fivecountyfair.org/countdown-to-the-las-vegas-bowl-could-it-be-lsu-oregon/

The Las Vegas Bowl, to be played Dec. 17 at Allegiant Stadium, will feature a team from the Southeastern Conference for the first time. This crew will face a Pac-12 opponent.

Here is a brief explanation of how the teams will be selected and an early projection for which teams might make it happen.

Pac-12

The Las Vegas Bowl gets the second pick for Pac-12 teams. The conference champion is automatically selected for the Rose Bowl unless they make the College Football Playoffs, in which case the second-best Pac-12 team goes to Pasadena, Calif.

The Alamo Bowl takes precedence next, but may pass over a school with a better record if it played in the Alamo Bowl in the previous season. The Las Vegas Bowl takes the best remaining team.

SECOND

The selection process for the SEC is more complicated. The conference champion plays in the Sugar Bowl, but if he makes the CFP, the second-best team goes to New Orleans instead. Then the Citrus Bowl takes the best available SEC team, before the Las Vegas Bowl and five other bowl games can bid on bowl-eligible SEC teams.

Early screening: LSU vs. Oregon

It’s extremely early to make solid predictions, but No. 12 Oregon and No. 25 LSU are strong contenders. The Tigers are already set to play at Allegiant Stadium in 2024 in the Vegas Kickoff Classic.

The Ducks, because they played in the 2021 Alamo Bowl, are more likely to be available for the Las Vegas Bowl than Utah, another attractive option. Oregon and Utah have a loss.

Reno Arch Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness | New https://fivecountyfair.org/reno-arch-goes-pink-for-breast-cancer-awareness-new/ Sun, 02 Oct 2022 02:59:00 +0000 https://fivecountyfair.org/reno-arch-goes-pink-for-breast-cancer-awareness-new/

The fourth annual Paint Nevada Pink begins October 1 in downtown Reno as the Reno Arch lights up pink at dusk.

Paint Nevada Pink organizer Nevada Cancer Coalition, as well as breast cancer doctors, survivors and advocates will gather under the arch as it is lit pink for a photo op and, likely, a big cheer.

Reno‘s arch will remain pink throughout October to help raise awareness of the importance of regular screening mammograms to help catch breast cancers earlier, when they’re easier to treat.

A number of businesses in northern Nevada — and others across the state — are turning their signs and buildings pink in October to help raise breast cancer awareness.

The key Paint Nevada Pink campaign action that accompanies all of this awareness is that Nevadans pledge to get screened for breast cancer within the next 12 months or remind a loved one to get screened for breast cancer. .

“Breast cancer screening can be daunting, overwhelming and low priority for some women who wonder when to start screening, how often and if they are affected by factors such as genetics or breast tissue density” , Cari Herington, executive director of the Nevada Cancer Coalition, said. “Since we launched Paint Nevada Pink, we’ve been able to help our partners promote a consistent message: annual mammograms starting at age 40 can catch breast cancers earlier when they’re most treatable.

“We also encourage women to start the conversation with their healthcare providers before they turn 40 to determine if they should begin screening earlier due to family history or increased risk factors, added Herington. .

Circus visionary behind iconic Las Vegas Mystery shows, ‘O’ dies at 69 https://fivecountyfair.org/circus-visionary-behind-iconic-las-vegas-mystery-shows-o-dies-at-69/ Fri, 30 Sep 2022 22:52:40 +0000 https://fivecountyfair.org/circus-visionary-behind-iconic-las-vegas-mystery-shows-o-dies-at-69/

LAS VEGAS — Entertainment visionary Franco Dragone, creator of Cirque du Soleil’s iconic Mystère and “O” shows on the Las Vegas Strip, has died. He was 69 years old.

In a statement on Friday, Cirque described Dragone as an “industry icon” who “has contributed invaluably to the success of Cirque du Soleil.”

“His passing is a loss not only to his family, but to the entire industry,” the statement read.

More details about his death were not immediately available.

Friday night performances of Mystère and “O” in Las Vegas will be dedicated to Dragone and his life’s work.

He brought Mystery to the Treasure Island hotel-casino in 1993 and “O” to the Bellagio in 1998.

In addition to these shows, he was responsible for many of Cirque’s most successful productions in Las Vegas and around the world, including New Experience (1990-1993), La Nouba (1998-2017) and the favorite of the fans Alegría, established in 1994 and is still touring today after more than 5,000 shows in over 250 cities.

The art director was born in 1952 in the small southern Italian village of Cairano, according to Dragone’s website, but grew up in Belgium, where his family settled in the mining town of La Louvière.

Cirque du Soleil acrobats perform in Mystère at the Treasure Island hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

While studying drama at the Mons Conservatory in Belgium, he fell in love with political theater and commedia dell’arte, an early form of theater involving improvised dialogue originating in Italy.

In the 1980s he “followed his passions across the Atlantic” to join the fledgling Cirque du Soleil, and as creative director he was behind 10 shows in the 1990s.

He then founded his own eponymous entertainment company, Dragone Creations, which he launched in his hometown of La Louvière.
