LAS VEGAS (AP) — Air Force officials say they're changing their policy on enlistment oaths and will allow airmen to omit the words "so help me God" if they choose.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Wells Fargo Bank has agreed to pay $290,000 to four tellers in Nevada to settle a same-sex sexual harassment case brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The lawsuit accused a female manager and female teller at a Reno bank of subjecting the four women to a sexually hostile work environment.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Elko County Sheriff Jim Pitts says an internal investigation into a former county jail inmate's claims that he was nearly beaten to death by three other inmates in 2012 determined that the accuser was the perpetrator, not the victim of the jailhouse fight. Former inmate Ryan Fosmo is seeking more than $50,000 in damages in a federal civil rights lawsuit accusing jail guards of idly standing by while the other inmates beat him.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada official says a go-slow approach helped recoup $50 million in state funds that some feared was lost when investment firm Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy during the Great Recession.
