Here are your Friday morning headlines:
1. The Clark County School District approved only part of the proposed cuts to save support staff jobs. The move saved 47 currently filled jobs, and avoided cutting up to $4.2 million from its budget. Instead the school board voted to negotiate with unions to identify two furlough days to save money. The district’s budget deficit is currently an estimated $50 million to $60 million.
2. Nevada dispensaries raked in more than $27 million during the first month of recreational marijuana sales, generating more than $3.6 million in taxes. The state has also pulled in $6.5 million for marijuana license and application fees. Those revenues will be used to cover the administrative costs to regulate the industry for the Tax Department and local governments, and all remaining funds go to the state’s public education fund.
3. Las Vegas police are investigating after a machete fight and shooting left three people injured. An altercation led to the machete fight, and then a few minutes later shots were fired in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven on Boulder Highway. One person suffered a stab wound to the leg, and two others suffered gunshot wounds to the leg.
