State of City inappropriate place for mayor to state his opinion

I attended the State of the City last night (Feb. 1) and was so impressed with the progress our city has made in the last year. Mayor (Rod) Woodbury gave an excellent presentation and I was so encouraged, that was until his closing statements.

In the forum of a State of the City he chose to attack our local news media. I felt he was not only out of line, but this was an inappropriate venue to voice his objections to their reporting. The mayor may have any opinion he wishes of our local newspaper, but airing his grievance in this way was petty and ruined the entire evening for me.

I will hope that he issues an apology to our community for his inappropriate use of this forum and apologize to the newspaper people who work hard to bring us the news.

Count your blessings

C.S. Lewis said, “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”

City, residents have much to be thankful for

The time of year approaches to again celebrate Thanksgiving and the blessings we enjoy. And surely living in Boulder City is one of those things to celebrate. The city recently hosted some of our major events of the year with Art in the Park and the Wurst Festival. Each of the events looked to be successful. And, of course, the weather has turned to the range of delightful after the summer heat, with just a touch of winter recently.

Deeply held beliefs continue to split nation

As I sit at my keyboard, my mind wanders to national events. What’s going on? Will our president be the president by the holidays? How will the stock market be?

Councilman will be missed

It is a very sad day in Boulder City.

City must consider clean, green future

When I was young, we could collect soda bottles, milk bottles and other glass containers (but not liquor bottles for some reason) and return them to the grocery store and earn a deposit of 2 cents for a regular-sized bottle and 5 cents for a large one.
