the douglas county sheriff's office at 586-72-56. fernley's population has more than doubled since 2000. and while that has had many benefits -- it has also created some growing pains -- putting pressure on some of the city's services. as paul nelson shows us -- that has the fire chief is playing catch- up. ambulance siren it's a busy time for the north lyon county fire protection district -- providing paramedic service and fire protection. huntley "we feel it is our duties to make sure this community is protected as much as we can." the fire district operates on about 1.5 million dollars per year -- about half of what huntley says is needed. a small number of volunteers are utilized, hose is paid for with grant money -- and hand-me-down equipment is used -- including two fire engines, given to them by the city of las vegas. huntley "they're almost 20 years old and there's departments out there, when these reach 10 years old, out the door they go." the national standard says 15 people are required for a

they're one of the wall street banks that triggered the financial meltdown -- goldman sachs. just settled with authorities for their part in the crisis that put seven million out of work and millions out of their homes. how does wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. our economy works for wall street because it's rigged by wall street. and that's the problem. as long as washington is bought and paid for, we can't build an economy that works for people.

5:24 pm
so to solve this problem, a few months ago, max took the matter into his own hands, and created this electro magnetic harvester out of a coffee can... some wire, two coils, and a spoon. "this cost me 14 bucks.' the harvester conducts radiowaves, thermal, and static energy, and turns it into electricity. "this wire takes energy from the air." down below here, we turn it from ac to dc." we take the device outside.. "let me make sure this is connected." and wrap up max's brother into a string of led lights. max- "here we go, bing. christmas tree." max- "it's hotline bling." landon- that can only mean. max. one thing. landon. one thing." a 14 dollar invention was able to do that.. so imagine this same harvester on a scale 20 times larger. nobody is more impressed than his twin brother, jack. jonathan "jack" laughin- twin brother- "creating free energy in his lab out of $15 bucks. which is pretty amazing."

"to make the world a better place. to give the world what it doesn't' have so it doesn't have to struggle in basic things like energy." max isn't in it for the money, or the recognition. max- my true goal is to help. it is to invent a future where people can be happy, can be safe and sound." that's one kid... with a whole lot of power. max is already taking online college courses from m.i.t where he hopes to attend full time in a few more years. if you know of somebody with an story like max's, email me lmiller@ktvn.com or message me on facebook. it's ktvn landon miller.
