is one of the most important skills a child can master. so nevada designates this week -- as reading week.

(( little boy with barking dog)) ((denise valdez)) reading to pets is a smart -- non threatening way for children to feel comfortable and gain confidence. (( sara vanhoose: from the moment they walked in it seemd like they found a dog that they connected with and they are so calm..wish they bring calmness back to the classroom! )) hopefully what they do get out this -- is a boost in self esteem and a chance to touch the life of a four legged friend. > ((denise valdez)) > typically reading week falls during the birthday of doctor seuss -- that's why you saw some kids and teachers dressed up.

> how much is your daily coffee fix really costing you? ((paula francis)) 8 on your side consumer advocate michelle mortensen is here with an interesting look at just how much we're spending on coffee and how it may be putting you in debt. ((michelle mortensen)) if you can't live without coffee from a barista every day ...
6:16 pm
and may not even know it. i've done a little math .. and what i'm about to reveal .. may surprise you. let's say you're coffee craving is simple. a grande fresh brewed from starbucks everyday. that's 2.10 a day. monthly .. that's 63 bucks. yearly ... you're spending 766 dollars ... just on a cup of coffee. now you may not think that's a lot .. but consider this . if you gave up your coffee for just 84 days... you'd have 176 bucks saved. enough for a ticket to a giants home game in the lower infield .. right behind home plate. skip coffee for 276 days and you can afford a suite on a carnival cruise to the bahamas. give it up for 2 thousand 5 hundred 62 days ... you just paid for tuition and fees at u-n-l-v for a year. see when you think about it ...
6:17 pm
is costing you a lot ... even if you're budgeting for it. now no one is asking you to give up coffee to save money ... but simple things like brewing at home ... can save a lot. a cup a day ... made a home ... will cost you about 2 bucks a month. if specialty joints are more your thing ... consider these tips. bring your own cup. places like starbucks give you a 10 cent discount ... and if you have a daily habit .. that's 37 bucks a year. and always join their rewards programs ... because a free drink is free ... and that's saving you money. ((michelle mortensen)) of course my main point with this story is to illustrate where your money is going. if you aren't budgeting each month .. you could be spending quite a bit on little things like coffee and not even know it. remember .. small changes equal big result. and i'll prove that again next week .. when we check in with our debt

((chris maathuis)) it's the first time since the 1920's that rugby will be included in the olympic games. and 10 of the teams in las vegas this weekend are making plans to be in rio de janeiro. plus... can you imagine watching manny pacquiao or floyd mayweather at the olympics. the door appears to be opening... i'll explain coming up in

now this is sports with chris maathuis. > ((chris maathuis)) three of the top five rugby players in the world are in las vegas this weekend... the rugby sevens' season is attracting a talented field, lots of eyes are now focusing on the sport, because it's now part of the summer games. ((chris maathuis)) world class players who might otherwise skip the rugby seven's season are now playing because the carrot at the end ofthe rope is a possible olympic medal.. simon amor/england coach; 'since it got nominated you can see the way the series has progressed the standard in the sport and the auro just everyone talking about the olympics brings a special feel to it." damian mcgrath/samoa coach; "it's a special time to be back in the olympics with the sevens the world series was the qualifying last year so all the teams are using this as a build up to the olympics so this is its its strongest ever." ((chris
6:26 pm
since 1924 rugby will be included in the summer games. that was the same year usa won gold. dan lyle/promoter sevens rugby; "apparently in the final we were hitting them so hard and knocking them down that the fans rioted afterwards when they won the medal and they cancelled rugby from there." ((chris maathuis)) but now the american's are playing catchup... kenya has been on the world for years... but they see the usa team making noise. ben ayimba/kenya coach; "not too long ago, usa was a minnow in sevens just as kenya.. it's good usa is picking up for the country inself i can see usa is going to be really big and we can see already there's a lot more interest." ((chris maathuis)) rugby will be played over two days at the olympic games... it's a fun fast paced sport. and in august many americans will be able to watch what the eyes of the world has been witnessing for years. simon/england; "they really have progressed so well and a force now, they have some real pace some big guys up front and guys that can shift the ball around as well...

competitive team." ((chris maathuis)) as we mentioned, 10 of the teams playing here this weekend have already qualified for the olympics, including usa. if you're interested the event is more then rugby... it's transformed into an international fesitval at at sam boyd stadium. ((chris maathuis)) there are still some tickets left for saturday's ufc fight at the mgm. on the card will be conor mcgregor and holly holm... two champs. miesha tate is fighting holly for the bantamweight belt. there's a reason why the ufc is suddenly sky-rocking in popularity. it all goes back to confident trash talking irishman --conor mcgregor. (( )) miesha tate/fighter;' he has reinvented the sport, single handedly changed the sport, at first i was a little reluctant because it was so different and brash and it might attract those who don't appreicate the martial arts aspect of the sport., kind of the humiltity and this and that, but looking back from the other side, i think more viewers is better period."
6:28 pm
it's looking more and more like professional boxers will be allowed to compete in the summer olympic games. the doors were opened long ago in basketball and hockey. and usa has really done well in hoops. and now it appears professional boxers will be allowed to fight for a medal. it would be interesting to see how usa would do then. not that this would ever happen, but could you imagine the philippino pacquiao fighting the american mayweather for a gold medal. that would be a golden night. ((dave courvoisier)) > today was a very special day at the clark county commission... as the commissioners awarded paula with the key to the strip... and recognized her 30- years news: commissioner - i just wanted to say thank you so very much because it was people like you and emily nielsen, when i was interning there it was my senior year, my mother passed away. i was fortunate to have you guys see me through school and i got my college credits and was able to graduate. so i just want to say thank you very much for being a friend and
