Alum shares memories of Boulder City’s past

I was amazed by the (Aug. 8) article on where the best places in Boulder City to get a drink. It brought back my memories as a kid in Boulder when you couldn’t buy hard liquor in town. I remember my dad saying he would drive out to the (Railroad) Pass to buy a bottle for special occasions,

And I recall the Pool Hall offered free beer on any day when the sun didn’t shine in Boulder City. You could buy beer at Central Market where I worked as a grocery bagger when I was in high school. Go Eagles!

John Bromley,

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.

What is best not easy question to answer

What does it mean when someone says one solution or another is “the best solution”? It is usually said to suggest that a particular outcome is what everyone should work toward.

Mystery of waterfall solved

If you are like me and, I think, most Boulder citizens, you don’t know much about that golf course on the north side of the highway as you head out to Railroad Pass. If you’re looking closely in the morning, you will see a pretty 418-foot waterfall in the hills and you might also notice that there is a series of clusters of tall palm trees. Since palms are not native to this part of the world you might cleverly deduce that these denote the various greens on the golf course.

People should have say in fate of old water plant

For the last 37 years, one of the most beautiful brick buildings in Boulder City has remained vacant. The walls have been vandalized with satanic graffiti, the windows covered in plywood and the copper wire stripped from the electrical conduit by thieves.
