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.

Dessert evokes flavors of fall

Take the ‘pain’ out of making paint choice

The bright yellow leaves fallen on my lawn, albeit heat-induced, remind me that autumn will soon bring us its fabulous color palette. Early fall and preholidays is the perfect time to paint because opening windows for ventilation is ideal. And it will get your house spiffy for the upcoming gatherings. If painting is on your to-do list, start planning now.

Turkey meatballs make dinner easy

Sometimes ground turkey gets a bad rap. Years ago, turkey was significantly less expensive than hamburger, so frugal-minded folks started swapping it in recipes calling for ground beef with mixed results.
