Rural Nevada residents file lawsuit against new district map

Residents of a rural, Republican-leaning town that the Nevada Legislature split into two Assembly districts filed a lawsuit challenging the state’s district maps. John Koenig and Gregory Hafen II, a Republican who represents Pahrump in the Statehouse, argued that the maps passed by the Democratic-controlled Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Steve Sisolak are drawn in a way that denies voters their right to elect representatives of their choice.

Intergenerational housing bringing vulnerable youth and seniors together spreads to Nevada

A new Reno housing complex will pair five young women who transitioned out of foster care with five senior citizens in need of affordable housing. Affordable, intergenerational housing communities have been a growing trend since the 1990s. In Portland, Oregon, former foster youth living in dorm-style housing can pop into a nearby community of foster families and senior citizens for some “Grandma love.” In Easthampton, Massachusetts, young people and seniors meet for dance and yoga classes, writing workshops and bike rides. In Washington, D.C., new moms who have transitioned out of foster care receive tutoring and share communal dinners with the elders living among them.

Cash coming to Tahoe animal center where burned cub escaped

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A new pledge to match half the contributions for a $1 million expansion at a wildlife rescue center at Lake Tahoe is a welcome relief for staff and volunteers who’ve been on an emotional rollercoaster since a bear cub burned in a summer wildfire escaped. The Lake Tahoe Wildlife Center has been making repairs directed by California regulators since the cub dubbed “Tamarack” tunneled under an electric fence in August. Two days later, volunteers photographed a cub clinging to a tree in a nearby forest. Officials became convinced it was him and he could fend for himself. A center spokesman says the new pledge means the expansion should begin next year.
