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.

Find unity in, through prayer

My dad had a standby joke about prayer that he repeatedly told in various forms for 28 years as a Clark County commissioner. It never failed to bring the house down with laughter.

Enjoy education’s escapades

Monday was a big day for Boulder City’s younger residents.

Be true friend indeed

There’s an old saying that I’ve never been truly able to wrap my head around: “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” I researched the phase’s origin and found references to the earliest possible version. Roman Quintas Ennius wrote circa 300 B.C., “A sure friend is known when in difficulty.” I’ve heard of old sayings but that old?

City needs fair, equitable solution to hangar woes

The local government of Boulder City made an enormous mistake. It’s OK to make a mistake occasionally; what is much more important is to admit it and find a way to correct it.

Blockbuster dream: Movies at historic theater

The Boulder Theatre is a magnificent piece of the city’s history. As the first building in Boulder City with air conditioning, it provided reprieve from the heat for the dam workers. And I think it’s time for the building to be returned to its previous use. Bring back summer movies at the theater.

It’s time to ‘Be Boulder’

Except for those few moments every now and then when the cynical journalist in me creeps out, I like to consider myself a positive person. I look for the best in people and try to ignore, as much as possible, their faults.

First impressions count

It has been quite the move from Pennsylvania to Nevada for little ol’ me (Hi, I’m Owen Krepps, the new guy at the Review). If you’ll spare me the time, I would like to share some of my observations with the town that I have made in my first month living here.

Water conservation top priority for city

With the results of the primary election last month I will resume writing this monthly column for the remainder of my term as mayor ending in November. I congratulate Joe Hardy as the next mayor of Boulder City and look forward to a smooth transition in working with Joe.
