    Washington (AFP) - President Barack Obama's Democrats staved off a united Republican effort to sink the Iran nuclear deal Thursday, handing him a welcome foreign policy victory. As expected, US senators fell two votes shy of the 60 needed to advance a resolution disapproving of the international accord, meaning the legislation aimed at sabotaging the deal is essentially dead. "The Senate has spoken with a clarion voice and declared that the historic agreement to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon will stand," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said after Democrats cleared the way for the accord.

    School choice is a hot-button issue for local school districts, parents and students. Glenn Delks op-ed in The American Spectator asked, why arent the GOP presidential candidates joining the fray and supporting education savings accounts (also known by the acronym ESAs)? Education savings accounts allow low-income minority students to have access to better schools outside of their assigned school districts. They are education-specific savings accounts, through which taxpayers pay for vouchers for low-income students, and parents have the option to use the accounts to pay for books and tuition at private or public schools of their choice.

Under the decision, county employees get a cost-of-living increase of 2.5 percent retroactive to July 1, 2014; and a 2 percent cost-of-living increase retroactive to July 1. The decision, which the county received Tuesday, almost entirely ends a longevity system for...

    State officials are investigating a complaint that raises this question: Should a man who was convicted of poisoning children on his son's football team in 2000 be in charge of an entire city's water? Jerome M. Breland is interim utilities operations manager for North Las Vegas, meaning he's head of the city's water and sewer system, though he's been safeguarding the water for the city of 230,000 for several years as a water systems supervisor. State law says a water operator's certificate, issued by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, can be revoked if the operator "has demonstrated disregard for...

    The Texas senators anti-establishment message resonates in northern Nevada. GARDNERVILLE, Nev. Four Republican presidential hopefuls gathered Saturday at a picturesque Northern Nevada ranch and pounded anti-establishment themes, but it was Ted Cruz who gave the most convincing performance at the first annual Basque Fry.

Scott Walker, Dr. Ben Carson and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina sounded similar notes....

    Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush has been forced to abandon a rally early because of a protest from Black Lives Matter. The former governor of Florida was in Las Vegas for a town hall meeting on Wednesday when he answered a question on racial inequality. An advocate in the crowd of around 150 then started to chant their slogan, so he quickly ended his speech and left the venue without making a final statement or shaking hands with members of the audience. The music he plays when he walks off stage is heard in the background of a video as...

"I wanted to ask you about racial injustice, racial inequalities, institutional racism," Hall said, referencing the growing Black Lives Matter movement. "Are you going to be talking to different police departments about training reform? You...
