Expect more of your toilet paper to roll out from Nevada — the world’s sixth-largest tissue paper manufacturer plans to more than double the size of its Clark County factory after getting a $2.3 million incentive package from the state. The board of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development approved a request Thursday from Sofidel Group, which helps answer nature’s call by churning out more than a million metric tons of toilet paper, tissues and paper towels every year. The expansion won’t just generate more of the flushable white stuff — it’s also expected to create 27 new jobs.

As Congress wrestles with how to manage a growing number of wild horses, Rep. Mark Amodei didn't mince words when asked his opinion. The Republican congressman, whose district includes rural areas where wild horses roam in Nevada, told ​t​he Washington Examiner that he supports an amendment that would allow the Bureau of Land Management to sell or, in some cases, euthanize the animals. “At its core, with this amendment, we will kill horses,” Amodei told the Washington Examiner. “I don’t use that or say that lightly. I have nothing against horses. I don’t want to kill horses. I know they make movies about horses, and not cows. I get that. They are an iconic symbol of the West. But I’ve got news for you, horse advocates. Policy makers, unless we are willing to get behind a policy and stop saying we won't kill one horse, at some point, we will have to start slaughtering horses because the overpopulation is so out of control. I don't support the status quo.” (Photo credit: Kyle Hendrix/BLM)

The day started with a celebration and ended with a bruised bumper for the nation's first self-driving shuttle. The autonomous shuttle debuted in downtown Las Vegas on Wednesday morning, but by early afternoon, a delivery truck "grazed" the front of the high-tech vehicle, city officials said. Metro Police determined the driver of the delivery truck was at fault, rendering this question unnecessary: How do you cite an unmanned vehicle? City officials seem confident that question won't arise. "Had the truck had the same sensing equipment that the shuttle has the accident would have been avoided," they wrote in a blog post.

State officials projected dispensaries would sell $21 million of recreational marijuana in August, but actual sales blew right past that prediction. The Nevada Department of Taxation reports there were $34 million in sales in August, exceeding the $27 million from the debut month of July. The two major state recreational pot taxes have raked in $8.6 million so far; most of that will go to the state’s rainy day reserve fund, with some wholesale tax going to regulate marijuana and any leftovers going to education.

Just call Las Vegas a millennial magnet. Sure, it's a popular vacation destination among twentysomethings seeking pool parties and nightclubs, but it's apparently turning into a long-term location for that demographic as well. Nevada ranked No. 7 in terms of states where the most millennials — people ages 20 to 34 — are moving, according to an analysis by SmartAsset that used 2015 Census Bureau data. The popularity of the Las Vegas metropolitan area largely fueled the growth: Spring Valley and Paradise both had millennial net migration numbers that fell within the top 25 nationally. In other words, more millennials were moving in than moving out. (Photo courtesy Las Vegas News Bureau)
