Library to host animal adoption event

Boulder City residents will have an opportunity to provide an animal a permanent home at an adoption event hosted by the library this weekend.

On Saturday, April 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Boulder City Animal Shelter and the Animal Foundation from Las Vegas will be on site at the Boulder City Library, 701 Adams Blvd., to connect people with pets.

“People will be able to adopt an animal, hear what services are available for pets in Boulder City, and register their pets with the city,” said Jessie Jones, head of youth services at the library. “There will be crafts for kids and stories in the community room. Our goal with this event is to get as many animals as possible into forever homes.”

The foundation will bring several animals that people can adopt. The animal shelter will have descriptions of its available animals as well as adoption applications.

“We are always happy to participate in spreading the word about animal adoptions, licensing of pets in Boulder City and, of course, our free spay, neuter and vaccines program,” said Boulder City Animal Control Supervisor Ann Inabnitt.

The Boulder City Animal Shelter, 810 Yucca St., is a local no-kill shelter.

The Animal Foundation is a nonprofit organization in Las Vegas. Its mission is to save the lives of all the healthy and treatable animals in the valley.

Peak season vegetables inspire hearty lasagna

What do you do when you’re craving something gooey and cheesy, but your scale rudely reminds you that you should consider eating some vegetables? I suggest you tell your scale to mind its own business because you are fabulous. Promise yourself you’ll have two salads tomorrow and make a colorful roast vegetable lasagna tonight. Problem solved. That’s a compromise that totally works in my world.

Army seeks DNA to aid in identification of remains

The remains of military combatants whose lives were lost while serving in the military are saved and documented as much as possible for future identification. It’s only in recent years that identification has been made possible by the use of deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA for short. A chemical made up of two long molecules, arranged in a spiral that carries genetic information, it has all the instructions that a living organism needs to grow, reproduce and function. And it codes genetic information for the transmission of inherited traits.

Give ramen noodles healthy upgrade

Confession time: At the grocery store, I always look at what other people have in their carts. Not a casual glance, either, I really look. I learn a great deal about the family behind the cart. Besides what’s for dinner, I can usually tell how many people are in the household, whether the family has children and what age. I can also gauge how much money they spend and how committed they are to eating healthy foods.

Turkey venture became lucrative plan
