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.

Shortage at Lake Mead demands water saving obligation

Water is life — a well-known phrase most Americans take for granted. But for us folks living in the desert, we’re more sensitive to what life (or lack thereof) could look like without water. Visual cues like cracks in the desert floor, scorched grass and shrubbery and, most of all, the “bathtub ring” around Lake Mead are all constant reminders of drought.

Call it returning the favor. Ever since they secretly watched their first monster/horror movies when they were young boys, frightening people has become a way of life for three scare actors and special effects artists at Tom Devlin’s Monster Museum, including its namesake.
