Scouting for Fish

Hali Bernstein Saylor/Boulder City Review

Corey Williams, left, president of the Boulder City Bass Club, assists Maureen Jones, special events lead for Bass Pro Shop in Las Vegas, as the sporting goods store donated about 80 fishing poles to Boy Scouts.

Owen Horning, 6, a member of Boy Scout Den 1, Pack 30, shows off the new fishing pole he received June 6 courtesy of Bass Pro Shop. The sporting goods company donated about 80 poles so that each Scout at the 75th anniversary day camp could receive one. The poles were refurbished by Bass Pro after they were donated by customers during a turn-in program. Each rod was paired with a reel. The company has donated more than 55,000 rods and reels nationwide in an effort to promote the health benefits of getting outside and away from electronic devices.

Satisfy rib cravings on budget

Do you love ribs? Who doesn’t? (Sorry to all my vegetarians. Look away.) Although ribs are already quite inexpensive, did you know there are cuts of pork, similar to ribs, that are even cheaper? I’m talking about riblets and rib tips. Perhaps you’ve seen them in the meat department of your grocery store but weren’t sure what to do with them.
