Owner of family heirloom seeks its return, offers reward

My name is Julie. I was passing through Boulder City on Christmas morning when I lost a family heirloom pendant at the Terrible Herbst Gas station at 1004 Nevada Way.

The pendant is about a 6-carat aquamarine square (light blue, my birthstone) set in silver, with a 1-carat diamond (my mother’s engagement solitaire) set at the top.

My mother passed unexpectedly in September not long after she gave it to me. She absolutely beamed when she saw it on my neck and was so very proud it give it to me. I am her only daughter. I feel as though I lost her again when I lost this pendant.

I, my 79-year-old dad and son were passing through because we were had gone to Las Vegas to celebrate my mom’s birthday, which was Christmas Eve. We went because she had talked about wanting to go back to Vegas one more time.

The pendant has been seen in Boulder City. The finder, a gentleman, has done nothing wrong. He was just trying to sell it.

I don’t have a lot but can offer a $500 reward to anyone who finds it.

Many people of Boulder City have reached out on Facebook and are trying to help. There are wonderful compassionate people in Boulder City, and I am thankful for them.

You may contact me at 847-917-9080 or the Boulder City Police Department.

Thank you and God bless you.

Our Emergency Aid of Boulder City food drive has been a great success. Thank you to all who donated pet food and pet-related items last December.

Emergency Aid could use your help year-round. You can drop off original, unopened bags that are within their expiration date at Professional Pet Room & Groom, 707 Canyon Road, Suite 105A.

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 at the dog park. Your donations, in time with help on work days, or when needed, and monetary donations are appreciated.

See you at the park.

Registered agent has no relevancy to drafting ballot question

I found Dick Farmer’s letter regarding transparency surrounding the city’s discussion about a possible ballot question giving the city the opportunity to refinance debt misleading.

In the spirit of transparency, of which Farmer said he is a proponent of, it should be pointed out that as a registered agent Shawn Morris is only responsible for registering the corporation with the secretary of state once a year as is required of any limited liability corporation. Shawn Morris’ responsibility for JNA Consulting has no bearing nor relevance whatsoever on the possibility that Steve Morris might be drafting a ballot question on refinancing debt for the city.

So, I would infer from Farmer’s letter he is suggesting that the city should not consult with one of the most qualified and respected financial advisers in the state and whose business is in Boulder City, because his registered agent, who has nothing to do with the financial part of the business, is related to the acting city attorney.

I thought not only Farmer but all residents of Boulder City would be interested in this information.

Nation needs more understanding, fewer guns

Education about economy critical for coming election

For the first time in 24 years, I felt like a stranger in Boulder City. In the Damboree parade, I carried a banner for a political candidate, along with two other city residents. The three of us have lived in Boulder City for 68 years collectively. We know a lot of people, yet we felt like outsiders, looking into a crowd of folks who were unfamiliar to us.

Historic preservation planner vital to city’s vision

Transparency seems AWOL

Tuesday night’s selection of a new council member to fill the seat vacated by Kiernan McManus when he was elected mayor certainly raises some eyebrows.

City played role early in DiCaprio’s career

I was on Facebook recently when Boulder City resident Samantha Foster shared a video showing 2016 Academy Award winning actor Leonard DiCaprio cruising through our town. The 1995 Japanese commercial, which can be found on YouTube.com, has DiCaprio toting a Honda Civic as he and co-star Yasuko Matsuyuki briefly explore Boulder City and the surrounding desert.
