I have live in Henderson for a while and it is far enough away from the strip that you dont feel like you are in Las Vegas at all. I feel safe here as HPD is really on top of things here. This would be one of the safest places to live. This is one area of Vegas next to Green Vally that are awesome places to live.

As long as you are not a diabetic.

Then again, if you are a driving diabetic, maybe the HPD will be on top of you.

A crime can happen anywhere in the valley. Yes it might be safe but it doesn't mean it can't happen to you or your location.

Forget crime, Hendersonians(I think that's what the people are called) don't even want to help keep their libraries open.

Two Henderson libraries prepare to close their doors - www.ktnv.com

The Malcolm and Galleria Libraries will be closing in a matter of days after voters decided against a tax hike to save them.

Henderson voters were asked to pay an additional $7-$10 in property taxes per year, bringing in the $1.5 million needed to keep the two libraries open. But, because the initiative failed, Malcolm Library will close at the end of the month. And when the library inside the galleria mall closes for the Thanksgiving holiday, they be will closing those doors forever.

I live in Henderson and voted for the tax increase, as did several other people I know. I was extremely disappointed that others didn't feel this way.

And Clark County also voted down the school tax proposal. Like EITHER vote was a surprise. I would have been amazed if either ballot proposal passed.

As a community, we simply do not care about education. We want our kids to be just smart enough to wait tables and pay out craps winnings.

Yeah, seven to ten bucks a year wasn't much. Do the Henderson residents feel that their tax dollars are being squandered by ineptitude in local govt.? If that's not the reason, I sure can't understand it.

I imagine the people who voted against it are against taxes. All taxes. All the time. They want all the government services. They just don't want to pay for any of them. And besides, this is the Las Vegas metro area. If this was an initiative to improve the quality of lap dances at strip clubs, it would have passed easily.

Libraries? Not so much.

Well, unless it's this one:

$7-10 a year!!!??? I thought it was for each month. I can't believe people turned down paying what they have laying between their couch cushions or under the seats of their car to not save two libraries.

This says a lot.

Yeh, some people get so caught up in propaganda that they think any taxes are bad. They dont want to pay a premium to have an educated society and the perks that come from that, but they will pay a premium at the whole foods to make sure their chicken is free range and their milk is from grass fed cows.
