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.

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.

Boulder City: A little piece of Heaven?

There is a hidden valley of verdant splendor in the McCullough Mountains. When I moved to Boulder City in 1981, one of the things on my to-do list was explore the McCullough Mountains.

About those ears…

In the still short time that I have been spending the better part of my waking hours in Boulder City, the thing that has most hooked me in has been the seemingly endless stream of neat local events. Pure smalltown America stuff.

A bad allergy season is nothing to sneeze at, but we’ll be seeing longer lasting ill effects of these rains in our gardens and surrounding vegetation if we don’t act now.
