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.

Spirit of season worth celebrating

Welcome to our annual Taste of the Holidays issue.

Value of single-branch library system questionable

How would you react to paying up to 266 percent more at the local Albertsons for the same items sold at any other Albertsons in Clark County?

Facts undermine conspiracy theories

I generally don’t believe in conspiracy theories. I actually find most of them silly and baseless. The John F. Kennedy assassination in 1964 was likely the place where these alternate conspiracy theories were born. Along came the moon landing and the conspiracy theories questioning the authenticity of the event abounded. Then we have 9/11, one conspiracy advocate suggested the Twin Towers were rigged by the government to fall down.

Be open to new ideas, concepts

Peoples’ statements and written words to me are always amazing and fascinating, sometimes sad and depressing. There’s so much to take in coming from all directions. What’s true? What’s a lie? What do we believe? Do we take it all in?

Veterans’ service worth emulating

Yesterday, I couldn’t help but shed a tear or two as a small, private ceremony was held at the Southern Nevada State Veterans Home to thank veterans for their service.

Election should be wake-up call for nation

It is incredulous that a confused, frail 36-year United States senator and two-term vice president (who began his political career during Nixon’s first term) with an anemic political record, who rarely ventured more than 75 miles from his basement after 9 a.m., garnered almost 75 million votes.

Election requires patience, flexibility

This year’s election seemed to underscore the strange nature of 2020.

Council’s replacement of staff authorized by charter

There has been much discussion recently about the removal of the city manager and city attorney by a 4-1 vote of the City Council. Statements have been made about the ability of the council to make such a decision. This is certainly not the first time such replacements have been done by a council. The following wording of the city charter is from the powers section of the charter pertaining to the positions the council has the authority to appoint or remove.

Appointment raises questions

Last week, City Council members terminated the employment contracts for City Manager Al Noyola and City Attorney Steve Morris.
