foodborne illness risk factors. there were potentially hazardous foods in the temperature danger zone including cooked potatoes and cut cabbage. both had to be thrown out. raw chicken was being prepped right next to raw pork, posing a serious cross-contamination risk. and paint was stored in a glass jar labeled pepperoncinis. the owner takes us to the kitchen to find someone to translate. 3:34 nats in chinese darcy: does either of you speak english? no english? english? do you speak english? nobody speaks english. okay. she ends up calling her son, and gives me the phone. 5:09 darcy on phone: tell us why this happened again for the second time in seven months. he blames the bad inspection on an overly picky new health inspector. 8:26 d : so you guys feel like he's trying to target the restaurant for shutdown as opposed to actually protecting
like this is a public health threat. raw meat, cut vegetables and dirty sink water should not be sharing such close quarters. and cut eggplant should not be put back into the dirty cardboard box it came in. 10:06 darcy: there was raw meat on the kitchen floor, stuff was at improper temperatures, things weren't clean. so that's pretty basic public health stuff. here's the meat stored on the kitchen floor. and check out this picture, where a head of cabbage has rolled out of its plastic bag onto the dirty kitchen tile. 11:24 darcy: would you want to eat a head of cabbage that had been sitting on the kitchen floor? he says it would've been properly cleaned before being served. but speaking of cleaning, there wasn't much of that going on at dong ting taste. in the dirty column on the health report--the freezer floor--complete with dried blood--the microwave, make-table cover and floor under the wok line. there was also built-up debris on the wok line side panels and hood. darcy tag: dong ting taste still has a c grade. the owners expect re-inspection

about 60 for the las vegas valley for thursday and friday. saturday another system will push into the area which will have a little more moisture and energy associated with it. that means there's a slight chance for rain showers with this weekend's storm especially saturday night as the tail end of the cold front drags through 35mph or so with northwest winds gusting to 30mph as the front passes saturday night into sunday morning. sunday dry air will filter in behind the departing system allowing for clearer skies and cooler temperatures, with highs peaking in the mid and upper 50s sunday and monday. breaking news right now... metro has just released these

in summerlin...after clark county officials voted today.... to give that land.... to faith lutheran middle and high schools. homestretch drive separates... faith lutheran's current campus and the land.... they just bought.... for expansion. earlier proposals considered moving the street itself... or building a bridge. but... county commissioners instead voted to get rid of the street.... altogether. neighbors are upset.... because the decision came without even a final drawing of the school's plans. dolly panagopoulos / lives nearby - i think it was the wrong decision and it was made that? i'm really disappointed because i feel like we have no control of what's happening to our land." the school did verbally agree to allow.... part of its new property to be used by pedestrians... cyclists... and more importantly... emergency vehicles. no word yet.... on a final price tag. we're learning more tonight about the city's first bike sharing system.. set to arrive in downtown las vegas this summer..
the program will have 180 bikes stationed all over the downtown area. all you have to do is pick one up.. ride wherever you need to go.. then return the bike at the nearest station. "what people are looking for are choices and especially when you're in an area like downtown and you have so many attractions that are relatively close to one another, you want to enable free movement between those attractions and that's what a bike share system does," david swallow, the senior director of engineering and technology with rtc said. details aren't final.. but it's expected to cost about 80-dollars a year to take part in the program. that will give you unlimited community.. and save you the hassle of equipment. the rtc plans to have the first 10 stations in place by the end of august.. then hopefully expand from there. why clark county is demanding more money..... from ride-sharing companies like uber and lyft... in the wake of a new report on cabs overcharging customers!!! and small business owners are taking up arms to protect themselves against the threat

rates were increased even as gas prices were coming down. that report comes as the las vegas city council makes a move to tack-on more fees for ride-sharing companies. councilmembers approved a new ordinance today to require a 50-dollar semi-annual fee for each active driver with companies like uber and lyft. that works out to 10-thousand dollars a year for each 100 drivers they employ. we'll be right back.... with a final look at your wake-up weather forecast. first.. here's jimmy kimmel with a preview of tonight's show.. right after action news. ((verbatim)) another storm system is pushing onto the west coast right now
