Double the news, double the benefits

There was a commercial played during the Super Bowl on Sunday about pizza delivery from Little Caesars being the next best thing since sliced bread. The announcement put everyone at the Sliced Bread Headquarters into a tizzy and caused a major upset in operations as they tried to find a way to outdo the new delivery service.

We, here at the Boulder City Review, have our own delivery announcement that has the potential to make waves in the way people read the newspaper. We have launched an E-edition.

You may ask, “What is an E-edition?” It’s an exact replica of the printed newspaper delivered electronically. It includes all the news articles, photographs and advertisements featured in our newspaper each week, something you don’t get to see when you read stories on our website.

Obviously, our announcement that the Boulder City Review can now be seen electronically is not earth-shattering, but it is a big deal — a really big deal.

It means you can read the newspaper anytime of the day anywhere you are. It can be accessed from your computer, your tablet and your cellphone. And, if you know you will be offline in the near future, you can download the pages to read later.

Looking for news? It’s there. Want opinions? We have ’em. Wondering what’s happening with the sports teams at Boulder City High School? That’s there, too, as are profiles of local residents, updates on area businesses and recommendations to keep you entertained each weekend.

Can you tell we’re a bit excited about this?

We love the idea that snowbirds can continue to remain in touch with all the news and events here in town while they are traveling. Or that young adults who move away to attend college will have the ability to follow the activities from their alma mater.

While the ability to have a hard copy mailed to you throughout the U.S. remains, accessing the E-edition provides up-to-the-minute news. There’s no more waiting a week for it to come via the postal service.

Personally, after having several articles of clothing and shoes ruined by the ink used to print the paper, we can appreciate the clean nature of reading the newspaper electronically.

Accessing the E-edition is easy. Just head to www.bouldercityreview.com and look at the far right on the blue title bar at the top of the page. It’s right there next to the search function. Just click on the link and it will launch the E-edition.

The first time you open it, a tutorial will begin explaining the various features and options for finding just what you are looking for. It will only take a minute or two and it’s well worth the time.

Getting the E-edition is a bonus for our current newspaper subscribers. You get two methods of delivery for the price of one.

Readers are not the only ones benefiting from the electronic version. Advertisers also are getting double the exposure for the same cost as putting an ad in the print edition.

Currently, anyone can access our E-edition, but this is only for a limited time. Just like the samples at Costco, this preview period will allow you to taste — or experience — all the E-edition has to offer at no cost.

It is expected that it will be available exclusively to subscribers within the next few weeks. Details are being ironed out as we work out any kinks in the operating system.

If you do not subscribe and would like to, just call our office at 702-823-1457 or click on the link on our website.

Either way you prefer to read your news, you get the benefit of our years of experience in putting out an award-winning community newspaper. As always, we remain focused on providing you with the most comprehensive coverage as possible of happenings in the city.

Recalls not effective way to govern

Elections have become increasingly ugly affairs. Even in, “Be Kind, Boulder City,” we can be wonderful to our neighbors and very tough on our politicians. A certain level of this is needed to keep politicians in check, but perhaps we are taking it too far. There is so much negativity that no matter who wins we often feel less than thrilled.

Defunding police an ‘insane idea’

One of the countless things I have learned as a columnist is many folks do not understand the difference between a columnist and a reporter. Not to worry, apparently several New York Times reporters don’t know the difference either.

Celebrate our freedom

Saturday is our nation’s 244th birthday, and that’s something worth celebrating.

Pandemic calls for citizens to care for, about each other

For this column I looked back on the columns I have written over the past few months. At the beginning of March my column focused on the rollout of the new marketing campaign for Las Vegas and how it would benefit our city, as well. What followed within two weeks changed our lives in ways that have brought hardships to many of us.

Kindness, compassion still exist

It seems these days that hate and anger are everywhere. You can’t pick up a newspaper, watch television news or even scan social media without reading about or seeing something bad.

Nation watches ‘good, bad, ugly’

We all have witnessed the extraordinary in the human race with the recent launch of the SpaceX rocket and space vehicle “Crew Dragon.” It was a joint effort led by a private team of scientists, engineers and technicians, along with NASA and its team of experts. It was an unbelievable venture and a first for a private enterprise to accomplish.

Terms of airport leases cannot be ignored

Thank you Roger Gros. I read with respect your article in the Boulder City Review, dated June 10. Being from an aviation family myself, I appreciate your opinions on the airport leases. Unfortunately, you ignored the primary facts of the disagreement, which are the leases, in order to make impassioned arguments on why the city should not enforce its rights under the expiring leases at Boulder City Municipal Airport. If you had included the contractual terms of the leases in your article, none of the arguments you subsequently made would have any meaning.

Education must be applied to be helpful

As I’ve watched, via my computer, the unfolding of events since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve tried to stay focused on what I, one person among 7.8 billion worldwide can possibly do to make our lives better.

We should be united as nation

I was there with Martin Luther King Jr. working for civil rights. I was there with a black preacher working for equal rights. I was there in tears and held the hand of a black friend tell of the way he was treated as a young man in south Georgia. I was there when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legally ended discrimination. I was there and observed the people of our nation wanted change and the end of discrimination. Discrimination and injustice still exist and always will, but I was there and have seen amazing progress in race relations.

Violence, riots will not stop president’s re-election

No conspiracies this month, folks, merely a string of coincidences with the same mission: to avenge the 2016 presidential election and prevent President Donald Trump’s re-election.
