Letters to the Editor, July 19

Roofing firm deserves thanks

A great big thank you to Scott Donnelly of Cooper Roofing & Solar for donating a new roof for the old water filtration plant. What a generous gift to the residents of Boulder City. I hope Boulder City residents remember the name Cooper Roofing & Solar and patronize this generous company. A perfect way to thank this gentleman and his company. Again, thank you to Scott Donnelly and Cooper Roofing & Solar.

Old refrigerators dangerous

There is an antique refrigerator with all hardware intact and the door in place on the sidewalk behind GoatFeathers. These old refrigerators have an exterior lock, so if a child climbs in and the door gets closed, they can suffocate.

Some of us are old enough to remember when it was mandated that doors get removed from a nonfunctioning refrigerator. This old refrigerator poses a serious threat for children. There is an act of Congress to address refrigerator issue: the Refrigerator Safety Act of 1956.

I hope the refrigerator’s owner or GoatFeathers management will please correct this before we suffer a terrible tragedy here in Boulder City.

Every person counts

All it takes is five minutes — five short minutes that could significantly impact your city, state and nation.

Choice to help others is ours to make

People in this country suffer and die every day because we have made choices ignoring their very existence and well-being. Whether you care about it or not, whether you think about it or not, this is cruel, sightless and insensitive on our part.

We celebrate our freedoms today, every day

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Hate triumphs if we do nothing

During firearms training, with marksmanship and safety protocol, instructors stress that you are responsible for every round that leaves the barrel of your firearm because you cannot undo your intentional or accidental harm.

October brings monstrous fun

October is my favorite month of the year. I love Halloween and all things macabre and mystical. Right now, I’m addicted to the Netflix series “Marianne,” which might be the scariest television series I’ve ever watched.

Fall in love with fall

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the earthy tones that accent the decor in our homes and the changing colors of the leaves on the trees.

Exchanges with other Nevada cities benefit all

We are not alone, Boulder City. That point was brought home to me again last week during the Nevada League of Cities annual conference held in Henderson. The League of Cities has existed for about the same length of time as Boulder City has been a chartered city.

Commitment to quality remains steadfast

It takes a lot to get us cynical journalists excited, especially these days when even admitting you’re a journalist can lead to a sticky situation.

Boulder City attractive for many reasons

Last month I talked about the branding of Boulder City and how the “World Away for a Day” might be a little misleading and limiting.
