Holiday-centric week fun for all

This is one of my favorite weeks of the year. It’s the one week that brings out the kid in all of us as Boulder City ushers in the holiday season with a flurry of festive activities. I can’t wait.

Go forward united as nation

It has now been nine days since the nation elected a new president. Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States.

Together we must fight senseless killings

Reasons to love our town plentiful

If you ever needed more proof that Southern Nevada — and Boulder City in particular — is an ideal place to live, this past week or so would be it.

If everything you see lately seems to have a purplish hue, you don’t need to have your eyes examined. That’s because local residents have been busy Painting the Town Purple to help raise awareness for the annual Relay For Life.
