Be a part of Being Boulder

One of the great things about living in Boulder City is the sense of community and camaraderie shared by its residents. We know that there are special moments in everyone’s lives and now we want to help bring those moments to light. That is what Being Boulder is all about. It’s a place where residents can share photos and stories about what it’s like to live in Boulder City.

Appearing regularly on one of our Community pages you will find photos and/or stories submitted by local residents. You’ll also find what’s coming next so you can start planning.

With summer well underway, we’re asking to share with us ways you stay cool. Do you spend time in the pool? Relax inside in the air conditioning? Enjoy an ice cream outing with the family? Send your photos to us at news@bouldercityreview.com by Monday for publication in the July 23 issue.

Please be sure to identify everyone in the picture, and include your name and a way to contact you (phone or email) in case we have questions.

Up next: Pets.

As always, if you have suggestions about what you’d like to see featured as part of Being Boulder, just let us know.

Send your ideas to editor Hali Bernstein Saylor at hsaylor@bouldercityreview.com.

Peak season vegetables inspire hearty lasagna

What do you do when you’re craving something gooey and cheesy, but your scale rudely reminds you that you should consider eating some vegetables?

That’s a compromise that totally works in my world.

Chamber recognizes achievements, installs officers

Not even a global pandemic could keep the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce from celebrating the achievements of its members as it gathered virtually Sept. 10 for its annual installation and awards event.

Army seeks DNA to aid in identification of remains

The remains of military combatants whose lives were lost while serving in the military are saved and documented as much as possible for future identification. It’s only in recent years that identification has been made possible by the use of deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA for short. A chemical made up of two long molecules, arranged in a spiral that carries genetic information, it has all the instructions that a living organism needs to grow, reproduce and function. And it codes genetic information for the transmission of inherited traits.

 
Heroes recognized: Church collects cards for first responders

Wind storm readiness key for when ‘dry’ monsoons hit

This North American monsoon season has been an unusually dry one. Also called summer or desert monsoon, this seasonal shift in wind is normally accompanied by heavy rainfall.

Give ramen noodles healthy upgrade

Confession time: At the grocery store, I always look at what other people have in their carts. Not a casual glance, either, I really look. I learn a great deal about the family behind the cart. Besides what’s for dinner, I can usually tell how many people are in the household, whether the family has children and what age. I can also gauge how much money they spend and how committed they are to eating healthy foods.

Turkey venture became lucrative plan

Nevada miners in the 1800s lived largely on beef, bacon and beans. Maybe they might get to a larger community or town once in a while for a nice restaurant-style meal, but mostly it was beef, bacon, beans and a little salt pork.
