Letters to the Editor

Family appreciates support

No words could ever express our appreciation for the love and support everyone has shown to us after the passing of Rosendo Gomez. We are deeply grateful.

Katrina, Eden and all

the Gomez family

News of perfect game appreciated

I will admit this may not be very good because I’ve never written a letter to the editor before.

My feelings toward perfect bowling scores are that they are not very well advertised; even though I am not a bowler I like the game very much and was really surprised to run across and old news item from your paper that said Lonnie Lee Cavins had bowled a perfect game (on June 20, 2014), which I think is a tremendous accomplishment.

Of course, I may be a little biased since he’s my cousin.

Rotary sends huge thank you to Boulder Dam Hotel, Albertsons

A huge special thanks to Boulder Dam Hotel and Albertsons for helping to make the 79th birthday of the Boulder City Rotary a great event.

From the wonderful food and beautiful cake from Albertsons to the help of Roger Shoaff and Terry at the hotel who helped to set up a perfect lobby greeting and party area, I say thank you.

Rotarians, friends, both past and present members, enjoyed a social hour with food, drinks and wonderful stories of past events.

Thank you,

Christy Springgate-Hill

Past President of Rotary

Longtime public servant’s efforts benefited city

In recent election years there have been very vocal attempts to disparage the name and reputation of Bruce Woodbury and his family.

Stand together against tyranny of minority

The nation of Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East, commemorates Holocaust Day on April 8 this year. It is a grim reminder that over 6 million Jews perished at the hands of Nazi Germany and its confederates. The heroes of the Jewish resistance are also recognized and honored.

Continued vigilance against virus needed

As spring arrives with warmer temperatures, we are also beginning to see the slow return to our normal lives. As health experts have advised, the COVID-19 virus has not been defeated yet and we must continue to be responsible for our actions to protect those around us. But progress is being made.

Vote by process of elimination

As we close in on early voting for the April 6 election for two members of City Council, some thoughts have come to me. I interviewed 11 of the 13 candidates for the positions for my website, BoulderCityPodcast.com, and in cooperation with Boulder City Social. Only Ray Turner declined the invitation and the mysterious Brent Foutz didn’t respond at all.

Research candidates before voting

We have a crucial election for two vacant Boulder City council seats coming up. All of us have been told, “Get out and vote.”

Editorial: Government transparency essential

Spring arrives Saturday and with it will come warmer days and lots of sunshine. It’s something that we’re celebrating.

Society benefits from knowledge

The other day I was reminded of what it was like to be part of a protest surrounded by thousands of others. How did the huge protests happen? There was no internet or Facebook or Google telling people where to gather at what time. No one called me to meet them in Grant Park or on Dearborn Street in downtown Chicago, yet I got there, along with thousands of others.

Time is of the essence

This week has me thinking about time.

Let’s spring into action

It is time for Boulder City, and the rest of Clark County, to secede.

Get to know candidates before casting vote

Election Day for our local primary election will be April 6. Voting for this election will again have a mail-in ballot sent to every registered voter in Boulder City. Early voting in person will also be available. The early voting this year will be in the city recreation center next to City Hall for easier access.
