Support for church’s lobster event appreciated

Boulder City United Methodist Church would like to acknowledge to the community and thank the businesses of Boulder City that so generously supported Loaves and Lobsters, our recent fundraising event for our church ministries.

Mike Pacini added his exceptional personality and DJ skills the entire evening. Grateful Pet Animal Clinic, Nevada State Railroad Museum, Serenity Salon, DeSimone’s Steakhouse at Railroad Pass, Boulder City Chamber of Commerce and many members of our own church were among the many who donated generously to the silent auction and participated in the bidding. All these local businesses greatly contributed to our overwhelming success which will help us carry on our ministries and also realize a church facility of our own some day.

Don’t let anyone tell you that Boulder City isn’t a wonderful place to live. The people here all make it that way. And by the way, plan on a fourth annual Loaves and Lobsters in 2019.

United as a society we can make a difference

What are we waiting for? Folks complain that politicians are unethical, dishonest, disconnected from the people and individual voters don’t matter. So, whose fault is that if this statement is true?

Political views influence how we act, react

With every new year, young people are expected to integrate rather abruptly into adulthood. Something that’s part of “adulting,” or at least should be, is voting. Our little city just finished elections for this year. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that these young people did vote.

Congratulations to new city leaders

Congratulations to Kiernan McManus, who was elected mayor, and James Howard Adams and Claudia Bridges, who were elected to City Council in Tuesday’s election.

Celebrate flag, all it flies for

June is here and brings with it the beginning of summer and other celebratory events.

Sinister roots lie in city’s shadows

Musician Neil Young and I share two connections. First, we have both been through Boulder City. Young was here in the ’70s and again rumored to have visited Lake Mead after playing Las Vegas with Promise of the Real in 2015.

EDITORIAL: Campaign tactics tarnish election

In just five days, local residents will head to the polls and cast their votes to determine what the face of the city will look like for the next few years and what direction they want officials to take regarding the possibility of building a new pool and allowing off-highway vehicles on city streets.

DAVE NELSON: Norwegian independence celebration here to stay

Syttende Mai is Norwegian for “seventeenth May.” It is the date, like our Fourth of July, when Norwegians won independence from the Dano-Norwegian Realm in 1814. Like the American experience, this occasion was little commemorated during the early decades, but youthful citizens’ urge to party caused bigger and bigger celebrations to crop up in towns big and small across Norway.
