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

Smart development key to sustainable future

I commend my friend and colleague Mayor (Kiernan) McManus for his comments in the Boulder City Review on Sept. 1 regarding his focus on conservation to best serve the residents of Boulder City. Together, our cities have a long-standing commitment to conservation and sustainability.

Solutions to nation’s woes just take action

What if you had solutions to a multitude of problems? Would you share what you knew or would you hesitate because the facts were contrary to the status quo?

Terrorists killed more than people

Sept. 11 changed us. And not necessarily for the better.

Dont let city become ‘Pothole Paradise’

Two years ago at a public event, a friend got in my face and in an uncharacteristic, agitated voice said, “Fix my street!” Initially I thought he was joking. But after two attempts to change the subject, I realized he wasn’t laughing.

Court of public opinion too quick to judge

Most people know me for my former Throwback Thursday columns with the Boulder City Review and some people may know of me from my failed run for City Council. What people don’t know, however, is that I used to work for actor Johnny Depp through a contract I had running events at multiple properties on the Las Vegas Strip. I was Mr. Depp’s private dining planner for all of his Las Vegas trips, including events with his family.

Relax, it’s Labor Day

Monday is Labor Day, and it’s somewhat ironic that a day devoted to celebrating the American workforce is a day that most of us strive to do anything but work.

Options for conservation must be explored

Fall weather will be a welcome change in the next few weeks, it has been a hot summer. Some of the hottest temperatures on record for Southern Nevada. And most of those records have been over the past few years. We can look at the changes in water levels at Lake Mead and know that things are very different from any other time in our lifetimes.

Agostini, Eagles Closet help those in need

Since the new school year began at the beginning of the month, students and staff members at Boulder City High School have made a variety of changes to help ensure their health and welfare in the wake of COVID-19.

Water’s low cost makes it expendable

Water is essential to life. Humans and every living species can go without many things but not without water; yet many take water for granted. We water our lawns, fill our swimming pools, wash our cars, take long showers, hose down our driveways and rarely even think about the costs involved. Why? Because water is too convenient and, most importantly, inexpensive.

City long devoted to conservation, environmental issues

The water level at Lake Mead fell to 1,068 feet in July 2021. That is the lowest level since the lake was first filled following the Hoover Dam’s dedication in 1935. This month, the federal government has declared a water shortage on the Colorado River for the first time, triggering cutbacks in water allocations to surrounding states from the river.
