Eagles flock to homecoming activities

Boulder City High School will play its annual homecoming football game Friday night, with festivities for students and alumni before, during and after the game.

After several dress-up days for students to help build spirit and school pride, including today’s band T-shirt and Friday’s rock band decades or class colors days, the annual homecoming parade will travel through the heart of downtown starting at 6 tonight.

The parade begins on Fifth Street near the school’s parking lot. It travels on Nevada Way before heading back to the school and ending in the parking lot near the football field for a tailgate party, said Cheryl Herr, student council adviser.

The parade will feature about 25 entries, including class floats, fall sports teams and the school’s marching band.

Last year’s addition of a duke and duchess from Mitchell Elementary School was such a success that new royalty from the school will be included this year, as well, she said.

Additionally, she expects the choir from King Elementary School to join the parade.

The tailgate party will feature food and music by DJ Mike Pacini.

Friday’s game kicks off at 7 p.m. against Del Sol High, which is currently 3-2.

The homecoming king and queen will be crowned during halftime.

Students will attend the homecoming dance at 7 p.m. Saturday in the school’s auxiliary gym.

Home Matters: New year brings new projects

Home projects are never-ending and can easily become overwhelming when the to-do list starts piling up higher than the laundry bin. The best way projects should be tackled is to first consider them seasonally. Should I check my attic during the summer, when its temperature can exceed 150 degrees? Along with time of year, consider order of importance. Is it more important that I paint my bathroom or fix the leaky shower that’s been dripping for two months?

Injured vets get homes tailored to their needs

A nonprofit organization that provides assistance to select U.S. veterans who served in the Middle East after 9/11 is not particularly well-known in Nevada, but it’s beginning to gain a large presence. Homes For Our Troops builds mortgage-free homes for qualified veterans who have suffered severe injuries including missing limbs, varying levels of paralysis, blindness and traumatic brain injury. The homes are specially adapted for those particular 9/11 veterans, not only giving them and their families a place to live, but also enabling them to rebuild their lives.

Sweeten season with two merry cookies

If you’re only going to make two cookie recipes this holiday season, may I humbly suggest these two scrumptious cookies? One is the ultimate deep rich chocolate cookie; the second is the ultimate buttery soft vanilla cookie. They are so perfectly compatible yet totally different. And the cherry on top is one uses three egg whites and the other three egg yolks. It’s like it was meant to be.
