GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — A Gardnerville man already serving six months in jail for punching a man in the face is now looking at a much longer time behind prison bars after assaulting a fellow inmate. Nicholas Langston was jailed in April on a battery charge. The Record-Courier reports a judge sentenced Langston to 18 to 60 months in prison after he recently admitted punching an inmate and kicking him after he'd fallen at the Douglas County Jail.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is considering giving its president and CEO a $100,000 raise spread out over the next two years and a bonus equal to 40 percent of his current salary. Rossi Ralenkotter's base salary would jump to $369,654 this year and $419,654 in the next fiscal year according to the proposal. A one-time bonus of $127,862 is also proposed.

NEW YORK (AP) — The estate of a copper heiress has lost a battle to recover over $4 million in donations she gave a New York City hospital where she lived for two decades. A judge ruled the statute of limitations had expired to argue that the hospital had manipulated Huguette Clark into donating. Clark died at 104. Her father was Montana copper baron and U.S. Sen. William Clark, who founded Las Vegas.

PHOENIX (AP) — Three weeks after he took a line drive to the face that nearly killed him, relief pitcher Evan Marshall was back at Chase Field in Phoenix last night recounting what so far has been a fast recovery. Marshall was pitching for Triple-A Reno in El Paso on Aug. 4 when a 105-mph line drive struck him in face. Now he's talking about pitching again — this season. His doctor says next year is more realistic.
