    A Las Vegas nursing home where 30 residents died from COVID-19 is facing several negligence lawsuits, but the facility asserts it is protected from the claims because it followed federal safety directives.

    At least seven families have sued the 190-bed facility for negligence since February, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. That includes five wrongful death claims for patients who died after becoming infected.

  • Winter Care for Livestock
    Wednesday, November 24, 2021 1:00 AM
    Most of Nevada’s cattle and sheep are raised on the open range, however, many smaller livestock producers, like those who raise horses, goats and even pigs need to provide their animals with some shelter in the winter time. Although, animals have their natural coats which allow them to endure much colder temperatures than people can tolerate. When animal housing is designed for human comfort, it can actually be too warm and unhealthy for animals. Buildings with plugged air cracks and windows covered with double plastic are often poorly ventilated. This situation can result in a buildup of moisture and animal odors, creating an unhealthy environment.
