Despite gusty winds, the annual Boulder City Spring Jamboree was again deemed a success. The event, sponsored by the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce, featured a car show, food vendors, live music, crafters, rides for the kids, and an antiques section. They also crowned Little Miss and Mr. Boulder City in Emilily Steinman and Hunter Datthyn. Chamber CEO Jill Rowland Lagan said, “The chamber staff and board would love to thank so many amazing groups and individuals. Thank you to all those who attended, to all those that volunteered hundreds of hours of their time, to all those from city departments that went the extra mile to ensure another major community event was safe and successful, to all those that participated as a vendor, to those outstanding sponsors that lifted the event to the exceptional level it is now. Finally, to all those that invest in the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce, allowing it to continue to strive to build a strong and healthy economy, phenomenal place to live, work, and play for locals, and an incredible place to visit and enjoy.”

City’s pet licensing proposal still in limbo

As the proposal to allow for a license for pet breeding, as well as the keeping of more animals than the three currently allowed by city code that came within inches of becoming law in March of this year, appears to be in some kind of limbo. After it was tabled, and has not yet been rescheduled to come back before the city council, a related case recently came before the municipal court.

Students learn the fine art of guitar making

Jimi Hendrix, considered by many to be the greatest guitarist ever, once said of his craft, “Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’ll be rewarded.”
