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

of Boulder City

Smith’s, Burk’s legacies live on

This week marked the passing of two people who played key roles in Boulder City’s history.

Green New Deal aims to improve lives

A few weeks ago, I went into a bar at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. As I walked in, I was greeted by three Boulder City gentlemen I hadn’t seen in some time. Of course, the first thing they asked was why I was in a bar at two in the afternoon. I explained I was having a meeting, and they hadn’t seen me because I had been really busy with some serious “stuff.”

Museum is about more than just choo choos

The Boulder City Chamber of Commerce and the Southern Nevada Railroad Museum co-sponsored a rather unusual community briefing in a facility on Yucca Street on Sept. 12.

Letters to the Editor, Sept. 19

Committee will bring needed details about pool, finances

Slow, steady a winning combination

It’s been said that if you slow down they will catch you. I didn’t really know who they were or why that would be a bad thing until last week.

Gun control not answer to violent crimes

If you did not grow up in an alcoholic, addict-enabling, dysfunctional environment, you are living in one now.

National splash leads to fraudster’s capture

It’s rare to find someone who doesn’t appreciate a great mystery, which is why I am so intrigued by Boulder City’s tie to the documentary-style TV show “Unsolved Mysteries.” One of my readers, Carole Neat, recently emailed me a tip about a shyster businessman who swindled millions of dollars from investors only to be caught at a local hotel.

Election campaign never ends

It seems that campaigns never end anymore either at the local or national level. But elections do occur and the citizens have an opportunity to select the people they believe will best represent their interests. Boulder City held a municipal election in June that brought changes to four of the five positions on the City Council. Some members were chosen by clear majorities and one position came down to a name being selected in a drawing.

Some things will be greatly missed

As our departure for Texas looms closer, there are a few contacts we have had in Boulder City that I particularly want to mention with my thanks. In many of those cases, we’ll be leaving an empty chair and just perhaps one of you out there would like to look into joining the team.

Retreat was real stand-up event

As you read this, I am standing at my newly cleaned desk. You might wonder why I am sharing such trivial and unimportant information. Well, it turns out it’s not so trivial and not so unimportant.
