11:13 pm
that his little pizzeria racked up so many demerits. 2:34 darcy: you ended up with 39 demerits. two shy of shutdown! joey: i mean, you look at the store, we never got that in our life. been here six years. never ever. this is my pride and joy. and that's why i'm interviewing with you guys. i got nothing to hide. their 39-demerit c grade came from a lot of little things. 1:39 joey: it had nothing to do with cleanliness or anything at all. nothing expired. nothing. i want to make that clear. the cheese pizza in the display case was held slightly below the safe temperature. scoops were touching spices and container lids were stored behind the faucet. and food in the walk-in wasn't labeled or dated. 1:19 darcy: they did say that the person in charge wasn't knowledgeable about all the basic food safety stuff--food temperatures, heating, cooling, all that--even sanitizer. joey: he knew it. he just got nervous i guess it was. they were also written up for the handsink not being fully stocked with paper towels. joey says that's because the health inspector--who was a trainee--kept washing her hands.
11:14 pm
inspector trainee used up all your paper towels and then docked you for not having paper towels? joey: absolutely. and made my employee shut the store, run to the gas station to get paper towels and turn down customers when we have napkins on every single table here. the inspector said a food handler made bare-hand contact with ready to eat food and didn't wash his hands for the right amount of time. joey believes the whole thing was unjust. 9:59 darcy: so were you shocked by this? joey: absolutely! 110% shocked. 39 demerits, i mean, i still can't see it. /nat transition/ we've got two closures to talk about. sage sushi on rancho and craig was shut down after failing its change of owner inspection. the place had roaches crawling around on dirty floors and walls. ranges, deep fryers and floors under equipment were encrusted withe walk-in cooler walls had corroded, and so had the ceiling, which was rusty and in danger of collapse.
11:15 pm

"you ask we investigate" special report.. i'm steve wolford. water is a precious resource in the valley.. and one woman is upset after being accused of wasting it. so.. she turned to 13 action news with questions about quality control. when you ask. we investigate. contact 13 investigative reporter stephanie zepelin has more.
11:22 pm
lately...all the more reason jennifer says she works to be a consciencious water user. but she says the las vegas valley water district isn't being so careful."""" jennifer found this door hanger on her driveway saying she was overspraying her lawn. it says she's in watering group a...when in fact she's in watering group b. so she called the water district's hotline. 13.12.54 i was told that i would be speaking to a supervisor, nobody's bothered to call me to address this issue 59 and then on top of that, i got the formal notice in the mail and it said that i was caught being a water waster at 11:05 am 13.09 as opposed to what the originally notice that was left supposedly on my doorknob said was 10:57 13.15 these inconsistencies are troubling to jennifer, who says she does her best not to be wasteful. 13.17.24 im consicous of the water issues we have, and i would like to think that im a consciencous consumer 29 and i take pride in the area that i live in, but this is just bothersome 33 we talked to the las vegas valley water district
11:23 pm
reasonable explanation. they day they issued the violation, a senior inspector was out helping train new inspectors on water waste violations. the difference in times for the violation reflect the time it takes to enter it into their system. they said the inspector should have put the correct watering group on the door hanger, but they said it reflects a consumer who is being vigilant about water restrictions. in las vegas, stephanie zepelin, channel 13 action news. we get complaints about water waste at 13 action news all the time. in another recent case.. the tables were turned.. when valley residents pointed to water being wasted by the county. when it's totally going to waste, just running out on the road, that's a problem. anybody that lives in the desert needs to appreciate the water. this is part of a pump system for an artesian spring that naturally forces water up at sunset park. the county usually pipes it back into the lake.. or uses it on the grass. but a recent mechanical issue left water spilling into the parking lot for weeks. stephanie zepelin: what would
11:24 pm
feel like you're wasting water while telling them not to do system in any way. we obviously have to follow the same restrictions with watering that anyone else does. the water that you're seeing here is a natural occurence. after 13 action news looked into this.. clark county sent someone out to make a temporary repair. a permanent fix was made about a week later. up next on this you ask we investigate special report.. a valley man wants to break his lease after moving into his home and making a nasty discovery. and.. talk about a sinking feeling. a homeowner learns his house is literally falling.. inch by inch.. and he's not alone. so.. we started asking questions and got some action. 124 cats were taken from a

11:28 pm
i kept smelling this urine, and i kept saying, 'wow what's this smell?' timothy culberson moved into the house on harp.. once occupied by repeat animal hoarder nathalie beck. but culberson says he had no idea until a neighbor showed him our stories. the rental company told him they cleaned it up and had the insurance company check it out. but culberson says he and his dog have started dealing with health issues that he believes are tied to the urine smell. now.. he's ready to move out. before you took my money you about it. so now to me, you're more concerned about the money than my health. culberson decided to withhold his rent so the rental company hit him with a notice.. pay the rent or be out in five days. they told 13 action news.. when he moves out they will let him out of the rest of the contract. there are reasons a tenant can
11:29 pm
you need to give written notice.. preferably through certified mail. if you think you might be in a similar situation.. contact the legal aid center of southern nevada. a home will probably be the biggest purchase you make in your life.. but one man's house is literally sinking. when you ask. we investigate. contact 13 investigative reporter stephanie zepelin is looking into who's responsible. """""""""""a year after moving in kyle and his wife noticed big problems with their home....tens of thousands of dollars big."""""""" 15.39.57 it was perfect for what we needed then 59 buying a home and starting a family were huge milestones for kyle...until his dream started to crumble. 15.40.01 it's falling apart a little bit 03 you can see cracks, scarring the walls around the home...lining the living room and dining room. kyle traced it back to an issue with his sewer box... the hoa found a leak under the driveway from the main water line. 15.40.34 took two or three weeks for them to fix it, 37 a few days to find it 38 and then that got fixed and now our
11:30 pm
house is literally sinking? 48 yea 49 about three inches so far 51 three inches and counting. the walls and window frames cracked after they moved in about two years ago. 16.08.19 cracks like this one weren't even here when kyle bought the home and got his home inspection. he said everything worked fine. but now it's hard to open this door and it doesn't even shut all the way 31 kyle turned to state farm -- his homeowner's insurance company. but it's pretty clear -- they do not cover land or repairs to the home because of an issue with the land. 15.41.32 because the hoa fixed the leak, they obviously know it's their pipe, it's their leak, it's their responsibility 38 kyle found out seven other neighbors have the same issue with their homes 15.42. 12 so everybody's kind of trapped in their house 15 so he took it to the hoa. their community is run by nicklin management. so we went to nicklin management, where steve nicklin himself refused to comment. so we called their insurance company - who refused to comment, too. 15.43.07 we can't sell if we wanted to anyway without losing
11:31 pm
answer or calls or talk to us... but the hoa is now taking action. their insurance company is sending someone out again to see if they are liable. engineers will take another look, to see if the leaks caused the houses to sink. """""""we sent kyle to the nevada real estate division paperwork to force them into mediation.""""" we hear from a lot of you.. dealing with issues of mail theft. one valley man decided to take steps to make sure his packages are delivered safely.. but he says drivers aren't playing along. jeff silhacek has odd work hours so he made an agreement with his neighbors.. and put up a note that says they'll sign for his packages. but silhacek says packages are still being left outside his gate or tossed over the fence.. and several have been damaged and broken. just kind of frustrating, ya know? and kind of on edge, you know you dont want your neighborhood to become easy pickings.
11:32 pm
know: the postal service.. u-p-s.. and fed-ex all say they do not respond to notes.. for safety reasons. u-p-s and fed-ex both have programs you can sign up for to change the delivery location of your package. the postal service asks that you to put something on file at the nearest office. our 'you ask we investigate' team works hard every day to help you resolve problems.
