Meritage Homes unveils its Extreme Green homes in Las Vegas

Meritage Homes Corporation, alongside Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, Councilman Steve Ross and other local dignitaries, today unveiled its new Extreme Green “deconstructed” model home within the Providence master-planned community of Northern Terrace in Centennial Hills.

The “deconstructed” Extreme Green model home includes informative displays and even exposed walls to show potential homeowners the innovative energy-saving features being built into the homes.  Overall, the Extreme Green homes can save homeowners up to 50 percent on their utility bills when compared to a typical existing home.

“With these Extreme Green homes, Meritage Homes is pioneering an entirely new level of energy-efficient home building in Las Vegas,” said C.R. Herro, vice president of environmental affairs for Meritage Homes. “We’re proud to have developed a new approach to home building by making homes more energy-efficient and still affordable.”

Charter School at Risk of Closing

LAS VEGAS -- The only school for the deaf in Nevada may be forced to close. There are hundreds of deaf students Las Vegas, but only the Las Vegas Charter School of the Deaf offers bi-lingual, bi-cultural education for free. Now they hope the public will hear their cry for help.

The tiny school operates out of a daycare in northwest Las Vegas. But the director and all teachers are licensed certified interpreters. They teach all required subjects and sign language. But the one-on-one attention for these special students could soon disappear.

The school only teaches nine local students between kindergarten and fifth grade. Between CCSD and federal funding, the school gets $6,000 per student, but that only covers half of their annual budget.

By April 1, they must come up with $50,000 or close down.

The school opened in the fall of 2008 and thought their money problems were solved.
