December has arrived and the final month of the year is filled with a plethora of holiday events that begin today in Boulder City.
Another Boulder City swimmer has joined the ranks of collegiate athletics.
Boulder City High School senior Abby Sauerbrei has been swimming since she was 6 years old, and on Nov. 16, after more than a decade in the water, her dedication paid off when she accepted a scholarship and signed her national letter of intent to attend Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, near Grand Rapids.
I love Thanksgiving. It always gives me good reason to pause, contemplate and express gratitude for the many wonderful blessings that fill my life. Last week, I made a personal Top 10 list of some of my favorite things to be thankful for. And this week I’d like to add one of my favorite things about Boulder City — specifically, its many dazzling vistas, view points and overlooks.
The holiday season is upon us, and while many families will be celebrating with colorfully wrapped gifts, there are too many that will not be able to afford to spend money on extravagant presents. Tom and Marci Riggs are looking to help some local kids in need enjoy a merrier Christmas and happier holidays with bikes that have been refurbished with love.
Life for the Boulder City High School girls basketball program got a little tough for the Lady Eagles on Tuesday, squandering a 4-point, first-half lead to the Vikings, before ultimately falling 50-34.
The Boulder City High School boys basketball program fell victim to 4A opponent Valley High School 50-33 in its season opener, but head coach John Balistere sees a lot of promise in this year’s team, having no problem scheduling higher-classed opponents regularly for the Eagles to face off against.
Both Boulder City High School bowling programs started their seasons off with wins Monday at Boulder Bowl, defeating Somerset Academy SkyPointe Campus soundly.
Boulder City Art Guild member Jeff Oldham loves the ocean. The breaking waves and the sandy beaches always have been things that inspired him, which is why when he became the guild’s featured artist for November he knew oceanscapes were what he wanted to paint.
Doing my research for this article I came across a very interesting website that should be required reading for all Boulder City residents — http://www.bcnv.org/DocumentCenter/Home/View/106 . However, nowhere could I find information about the origins of the Boulder City Pool, which is sad as the pool has many enthusiastic customers who keep asking when are we getting our promised new pool?
