Members of the Boulder City History & Art Foundation spent time Saturday to clean up Reflections Park on Colorado Street. After learning the city now owns the historic water treatment plant, the foundation is moving forward with plans to spruce up the area. The Community Gardens is considered to be the front yard to the old plant and Reflections Park is considered the backyard to the plant. Future plans include beautification of the boarded up windows and a tour of the water treatment building is slated for later this month.
This year’s Art in the Park will put the emphasis on art.

Q. I have a Washington navel orange and Flordaprince peach tree planted this spring that a local nursery claimed was eight to 10 years old. The peach tree produced lots of small fruit. The orange tree produced tons of flowers but fruit that dropped from it after it flowered. The trees don’t look so good now. Your opinion please?
Mining was the main reason Nevada was developed as a state, what with the very rich Comstock Lode at Virginia City and numerous other communities and camps such as Delamar and Pioche. Mining was equally important in California as well and had been since the gold rush there of 1849.
Anyone watching HBO’s sci-fi series “Westworld” must be particularly creeped out by our current fly infestation, especially since the show filmed on location at Hoover Dam and Black Canyon this year. For folks not hip to this dystopian neo-Western, flies represent, well, pretty much the end of mankind as we know it.
