Clearing the air

I am writing to address misinformation that has circulated at a recent City Council meeting. I am the managing attorney and owner of Bluebird Injury Law in Boulder City and I am running for justice of the peace.

I understand the importance of accurate information, especially when it comes to matters that may impact public perception. At the City Council meeting last Tuesday, a public comment was made that was false. The comment stated that I, along with my husband, are operating a short-term rental illegally. That is not true, as I do not operate one and my husband never has. It is important that this misconception be clarified.

I want to emphasize that I am fully committed to upholding all local regulations and ordinances. Not only personally, but professionally. The law is my actual business and livelihood. I take compliance with regulations very seriously, and I believe in full adherence with the law. I understand the concerns that have been vocalized by both sides regarding short-term rentals.

I am dedicated to transparency and honesty in all my endeavors. I appreciate the opportunity to clarify the misinformation that has been published. If any resident would like more information or would like to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact me. I appreciate the dedication to providing accurate and reliable news coverage for our community.

Time to recognize unsung heroes

We have so many functions within the Boulder City Police Department, from school resource officers to road patrol to the detective bureau. The work that they do keeps Boulder City among the “Safest Cities in Nevada” (newhomesource.com, alarm.com) year after year. One unit is the backbone of our public safety response: Public Safety Dispatchers.

Honoring National Public Health Week

Shhhhh… Don’t tell anyone

So, there was this guy I used to know. And, yes, a million stories told in bars have started with that exact phrase.

How my career has come full circle

This time next week it will have already been a year since I took over as editor of the Review.

Bumps in the road of life

Driving up to a meeting in Las Vegas, I started thinking about how life is symbolically a highway. The interstate was smooth. Then – all of a sudden, there was traffic jam – stop and go for a few miles, slowing me down.
