Being Boulder

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. Starting next week we are introducing a new feature, Being Boulder, a place where residents can share photos and stories about what it’s like to live in Boulder City.

Each week on one of our Community pages you will find photos and/or stories submitted by local residents, as well as what will be featured the coming week.

Next week, for our July 9 issue, we are asking you to share photos of your Fourth of July celebrations. The following week, July 16, show us how you stay cool.

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.

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 photos and ideas to news@bouldercityreview.com.

Don't miss the big stories. Like us on Facebook.

Shortage at Lake Mead demands water saving obligation

Water is life — a well-known phrase most Americans take for granted. But for us folks living in the desert, we’re more sensitive to what life (or lack thereof) could look like without water. Visual cues like cracks in the desert floor, scorched grass and shrubbery and, most of all, the “bathtub ring” around Lake Mead are all constant reminders of drought.

The 2021 Trunk or Treat will again be a drive-thru affair at Veterans’ Memorial Park with children and their parents staying in their vehicles.

Boulder City Nuggets: Special effects artists, scare actors relish making people scream
