Celia Shortt Goodyear/Boulder City Review

Welcome to the second-hottest place around. Boulder City Fire sent out a reminder this week about some heat-related issues to be aware of.
To help make a safe Fourth of July holiday, Boulder City is closing the dry lake bed in the Eldorado Valley from July 3-5.
The National Weather Service has extended an excessive heat warning through 11 p.m. Sunday for the Las Vegas Valley and other lower desert areas including Boulder City.
Adults over the age of 65 tend to take more medicines than any other age group. Staying on track with a medication regimen is not always easy. With each addition to that regimen, the risk of making a mistake increases. It’s important to take an active role in tracking your medications.
Wow, the animal shelter has been experiencing a “cat-tastic” month and they are inviting you to join the fun. I have inside information from the kitten-cuddling seniors that the babies are beautiful and getting more and more user friendly as the days go by.

Most begin to explain the domestic issue like this: In the beginning, it was perfect, awesome, wonderful, the best. Of course, it was. Otherwise, there would never be a reason for the call today; the relationship would have died a natural death at that point. He (or she) is a felon, a drug dealer, a thief, an abuser, etc., and I’m afraid of them now.

The balance between wildlife and civilization has always been delicate but never as much as during the summer months. Having grown up in wonderful, wild Wyoming, it is foreign language for me to hear panic over a bighorn sheep in the yard or a coyote running the road.
The official start of summer is just around the corner. Summer days bring summer fun, but the season also brings its own hazards and increased risk for injury. Planning ahead and taking simple precautions can help keep you and your family safe this summer.

We would all like to believe we’re the best at whatever we are or do, right? Maybe we are; most likely, we are not. I am surprised at myself sometimes when the judgmental self surfaces and I become an expert at not only what I do but also what someone else does (or is doing).
Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day is Friday, and with it comes a reminder of the importance of water safety, especially when living close to Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Last week, I discussed how to help out neighbors in times of crisis and this week will be an expansion on that theme.
