Girls basketball team gets holiday spirit

Members of the Boulder City High School girls varsity basketball team have been getting their holiday spirit into shape in preparation for serving as elves aboard the Santa Train for the Nevada State Railroad Museum.

The girls have volunteered to ride on each trip the train makes this weekend and the weekend of Dec. 21 and 22 to raise awareness of the basketball team and the need for donations to help defray the $200 cost per girl to play on the team. The spirit pack fee pays for uniforms, practice jerseys and other expenses.

Anyone wishing to help the team can send donations to Boulder City High School, 1100 Fifth St., Boulder City, NV 89005, Attention: girls basketball.

Coach Paul Dosch said it is important that any donations be sent specifically to the attention of the team otherwise they are absorbed into the school’s general fund.

Runion excels at both sales and trails

Bret Runion has an uncanny knack of remembering a house he sold 30 years ago, who bought it, who sold it and in what year. And if you give him a few extra seconds, he could probably tell you the coloring of carpeting in each.

Grass removal, water waste prevention offer incentives

Walking my dogs around the neighborhood, early in the morning to beat the heat, I’ve noticed residents being mindful of water usage, taking steps to conserve in multiple ways. Several homes within a six-block radius have removed or are in the process of replacing their grass with desertscape (xeriscape) or artificial grass. Early morning watering schedules are being adhered to – before 9 a.m., for optimal lawn health and water conservation.

Damaged or disturbed asbestos in home presents health hazards

When my friend learned there was asbestos in the roof of a house he was looking to buy in Boulder City, it reminded me that the scarlet letter ‘A’ of building materials is something to be wary of when you own a home.
