Blazes wish to help others continues to burn

Boulder City local Blaze Trumble is accepting donations for his yearly blanket and jacket drive through Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Trumble, now a freshman at Boulder City High School, has been holding this annual drive as his birthday wish for the past 10 years. Through it, he collects blankets and jackets for people in the Las Vegas area who are in need.

Donations should be gently used and can be dropped off in boxes around town at the Boulder Dam Credit Union, 530 Avenue G; Plaza Realty, 581 Hotel Plaza; World Famous Coffee Cup, 512 Nevada Way; Christian Center Church, 571 Adams Blvd.; and Boulder Dam Brewing Co., 453 Nevada Way.

Trumble and his friends will hand out the donations at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission on Wednesday, Nov. 22, after the needy are served a warm Thanksgiving meal.

People can also make donations to his GoFundMe page, www.gofundme.com/blazeswish-10thyear-helping-homeles. The money is used to purchase sleeping bags, tents and jackets at discounted prices.

For more information, call 702-985-1001 or visit www.BlazesWish.com.

Take the ‘pain’ out of making paint choice

The bright yellow leaves fallen on my lawn, albeit heat-induced, remind me that autumn will soon bring us its fabulous color palette. Early fall and preholidays is the perfect time to paint because opening windows for ventilation is ideal. And it will get your house spiffy for the upcoming gatherings. If painting is on your to-do list, start planning now.
