Signs could help direct motorists to town

As a Boulder City resident focused on the financial effects of the new bypass on our local businesses, I recently dined at the Pizza Hut on Boulder City Parkway and learned that their business is down over 50 percent. I then drove both directions of I-11 and found that there is no signage on either end of the bypass directing motorists to food or lodging. There is signage for the Railroad Pass truck stop and numerous businesses there but nothing for Boulder City.

Having just returned from a road trip to Medford, Oregon, my wife and I depended on these blue background signs offering food and lodging in the many towns we passed. Why isn’t there a sign for McDonald’s, Jack in the Box, Pizza Hut, Best Western, Dairy Queen, The Chicken Shack, etc.? Visitors need options; with out those signs motorists who have never been here will choose the bypass. I would, too.

Heller urged to vote against Kavanaugh nomination

How can Sen. Dean Heller possibly accept a Supreme Court nomination from the criminal Trump? (President Donald) Trump has now had 43 of his “best people” indicted, plead out or convicted.

Does Heller think for a minute that Trump is not guilty of multiple crimes, including money laundering, Russian election tampering and conspiracy against the United States? Of course Trump is guilty, and we, the people of Nevada, do not want him to nominate a Supreme Court justice who is shady and unfit to for the bench.

Do your job, Dean Heller, and vote with the people of Nevada. Vote no on (Brett) Kavanaugh.

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.
