Take that!

Several Boulder City residents celebrated International Pillow Fight Day Saturday afternoon with some good old-fashioned fun.

The event was loosely organized by Alexandra Keogh, who had seen a pillow fight in London last year when she was studying abroad. Her father, Justin Keogh, helped organize the event.

The only requirements to participate were to bring your own pillow and have fun. From the smiles on people’s faces during the fight, it appeared that was easy to do.

Pillow fights have been held internationally since 2008 as part of the urban playground movement, which was created to encourage people to engage in noncommercial public events and more social interaction.

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.
