More good news for the Las Vegas real estate market. Nevada’s employers added 9,600 jobs to the work force in February, keeping the statewide unemployment rate low and steady at 3.9 percent, the state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation reported Monday. The 3.9 percent seasonally adjusted rate was unchanged from January, and was eight-tenths of a percentage point lower than February 2004, the agency reported. Nevada’s job growth-rate is more than three times the national average of 1.8 percent according to Nevada Gov. Kenny Guinn.

Las Vegas Suffers a Terrible Loss

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

Polly Gonzalez, an anchor for KLAS-TV, Channel 8, died Monday while traveling in California with her two young daughters. Both daughters received minor injuries. Gonzalez, 43, was heading back to Las Vegas from a three-day weekend visiting relatives in San Jose, Calif., when her SUV swerved and subsequently rolled over numerous times. Gonzalez helped community organizations reach out to young people, particularly in the Hispanic community, and she served as a guest speaker for a variety of programs. Polly Gonzalez was highly respected by everyone at MS Las Vegas Real Estate and we join the community in mourning her loss.
