Preventing Pet Projectiles: The Importance of Pet Restraints

By Ashlee Verba  When people think about a road trip, they typically wouldn’t dream of letting their son or daughter ride in the car without a seatbelt, right? But what about their furry family member(s)? In a recent study conducted by the American Pet Products Association, one-third of dog owners bring their pet along in the car when traveling for two or more nights. The same study revealed that nearly half (48 percent) of owners use no method to restrain their dog when traveling in the car. While this number has been steadily declining, when considering there are 83 million dogs ...

Food for Picnic Perfect Fun. Food Stylist: Aly Wagonseller Art Director: Kristi Stephenson Photographer: Dave Smith Unlike many parts of the country where the ground’s still solid with frost and winter wardrobes have yet to be packed away for the season, we Las Vegans are spoiled with beautiful weather in the early months of spring.  Moderate temperatures and sunny days beckon us outdoors, where fun in the sun can be had in all areas of the valley from Lake Mead to Spring Mountain Ranch, to the more desolate trails and slot canyons that dot our horizon.  No matter where you choose to bask in ...

Putting Spring Back In Your Skin

Putting Spring Back In Your Skin

The elongated chilly evenings are soon to be replaced by those big yellow rays gleaming through the mountain peaks. Families are preparing for a splish-splash into spring break getaways and Moms are finally taking a few seconds to think beyond packing lunch boxes and carting kids to activities. Post getting-the-kids-out –the-door haze, you walk past a mirror and wonder, “Who is that haggard woman staring back at me, surely not moi?” The sleepless bags have settled into your orbital sockets, a stress pimple trumpets on your chin, and you haven’t shaved your legs since when? Spring cleaning doesn’t just apply to ...

“Gameboy” Back – Protecting your Child from the Newest Culprit in Spinal Ailments

“Gameboy” Back - Protecting your Child from the Newest Culprit in Spinal Ailments

By Aly Wagonseller Anyone that has worked sitting at a computer for years on end knows the havoc it can create on our posture, back and neck alignment. Unfortunately, doctors worldwide are discovering that children as young as eight years old are presenting with adult-like spinal issues not seen since the lack of child labor laws allowed kids to work in factories.  Herniated discs, curvature of the spine and an inability to touch their toes is becoming more common, resulting in a generation of children plagued with chronic back problems before they reach the legal age to vote. Discovering the reason behind ...

The Downtown Container Park – Where Everyone Has a Story

The Downtown Container Park - Where Everyone Has a Story

Strolling through a city block piled three-stories high with repurposed shipping containers – amongst laughing children, chattering adults, live music and the addicting waft of mesquite barbeque – it’s hard to believe we just stepped off the streets of what  was once considered a virtual no man’s land. Our first time visiting the new Downtown Container Park at 707 Fremont Street was anything but. The buzz and energy within the 20,000 square feet of boutiques, restaurants, bars and giant tree house (also fashioned from reborn cargo containers) was tangible, and the genuine pleasure of the inhabitants – many of whom ...

10 Years of Zip Code Magazines

10 Years of Zip Code Magazines

Over 10 years ago I had an idea to create a local magazine for the communities of Las Vegas and Henderson.  At the time there were city wide magazines, but nothing that targeted individual areas and highlighted the people and families who lived in them.  In February of 2004, the first issue of 89052 Magazine was mailed. Baseball icon Rollie Fingers was our first “Meet the Neighbor” feature, Andrew Hatch, our inaugural “A Step Above” student and Mark Corazzi, from State Farm Insurance, was our first advertiser (and still advertising).  After our first mailing we anxiously waited to see what ...

Where Are They Now?

Where Are They Now?

From the inception of the Zip Code Magazines our motto was “Building community one zip at a time” and when we came up with it, we meant it. What we realized from the onset was that building community started with one very basic building block: people. We wanted to create a unique section in our magazine that not only celebrated those “movers and shakers” who were already involved in the community, but also lauded the young people who would, at some point, become stellar members of our city. That’s when we incorporated “A Step Above.” As we reached out to ...
