Work of bell ringers for Emergency Aid appreciated

Each year the holiday season in Boulder City begins with the ringing of the bell for Emergency Aid of Boulder City. This year’s season began the week of Thanksgiving, Monday, Nov. 21, with Boy Scout Troop 7. Our young people have supported Emergency Aid all year by conducting food drives, volunteering in the pantry and various fundraisers. This was another opportunity for their commitment to serve.

Next year, we encourage more of Boulder City’s youth groups to join us in ringing the bell.

Other organizations that rang the bell: Boulder City Business Group, St. Andrew Catholic Community, Boulder City Elks Lodge No. 1682, Rotary Club of Boulder City, Boulder City United Methodist Church, Boulder City Chamber of Commerce, Faith Christian Church, Sunrise Realty, Xi Zeta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi and Boulder City Council members. And, volunteers of Emergency Aid.

Many citizens of our community stepped in at the last minute to fill hours when needed. There’s no city like our city to help one another.

Happy holidays and thank you.

Myra Davis


See Spot Run grateful for year-round support

First, a big thank you goes out to all who have donated pet food and pet-related items to our annual food drive to help Emergency Aid of Boulder City.

Emergency Aid could use our help year-round. You can drop off original, unopened bags within the expiration date at Professional Room and Groom, 707 Canyon Road, No. 105a. (It is closed Tuesday and Wednesday.)

See Spot Run and Emergency Aid know firsthand how much each donation is appreciated.

Secondly, See Spot Run would like to thank all who have contributed to a successful year for the dog park. It may have been a donation, or help when work in the park was needed, or being a good ambassador for the park. It takes a team to keep an enjoyable play place for our four-legged friends.

Thank you to all. Without you we could not do it all. See you at the park.

See Spot Run

Kids and calendars and too many events

I knew that becoming a parent would require my hobbies to take a backseat, but I didn’t realize that my children would be busier than I’ve ever been in my life.

Boulder City staff encourages resident feedback

City staff wants to hear from you, help you, and continue our quest to make Boulder City the best place to live, work, and experience enjoyment in Southern Nevada.

USA’s strength comes through cooperation with love

Perhaps you believe that bipartisan cooperation is not possible. Ninety-five percent of the time legislation in Joe Biden’s presidency was bipartisan.

Good sportsmanship serves us well in life

Good sportsmanship is hard to define. Its hallmarks include winning without gloating, losing gracefully and respecting everyone involved, including opponents, coaches, officials, fans and administrators. In the heat of competition, will your better nature rise to manifest the good sport in you? Or will you instead listen to the negative voices and be a poor sport? Many youths and adults in our town recently had a chance to discover the answers to those questions when faced with a startling development.

Time to make a move

This is probably one of the most difficult columns I will have to write during my tenure as editor of the Boulder City Review. And that’s because my time at the helm of the paper is coming to an end.

U.S. residents better duck

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. That, dear reader, is an example of “ab-DUCK-tive” reasoning.

Feds should force California’s hand on water use

California officials continue to be the lone holdout on an agreement among seven Colorado River states to cut water usage. Despite imposing numerous “deadlines” for such a deal, federal officials have yet to intervene. They must reconsider if the thirsty Golden State refuses to budge.

Basketball teams merit accolades

The Boulder City Review is sending special commendations to the boys of the basketball teams at Garrett Junior High and Boulder City High schools.

Area’s natural beauty must be preserved

Anyone who has driven into Henderson in the past few months has likely seen the new homes going up in the Black Mountain area. And when I say “going up” I mean it literally; these homes are being built onto the side of the mountain itself.
