Noise at Forge House has subsided, owners working with neighbors

I believe in promoting Boulder City and the local businesses. While living behind Forge House has been a challenge during its first few months of operation and all through the construction stage, the music situation has drastically improved in the past three months — perhaps as a result of a learning curve.

I’ve spoken directly to Grant Turner since my meeting with Ms. (Peggy) Leavitt. It is very important that I maintain a friendly relationship with my neighbors that is built upon mutual respect and understanding. So far, I believe we are headed in a positive direction that will work for the neighbors and also benefit Forge House’s profit margin.

As of recently, Forge House has been consistently shutting down music by 10 p.m. and the level of noise hasn’t shaken the house. While I can’t speak for all the neighbors, I’m remaining positive that both the Turner family and I will be able to maintain this current mutual understanding.

I look forward to working together with Grant and the City Council to provide fair input on the new noise ordinance.

Police could help ensure garage sale signs removed

I love garage sales. But it seems the people hosting the sales do not pick up their signs when they close up. I purchased items at an estate sale on Fairway Drive on Friday in the early morning. The six or so signs which directed me there were still out Sunday at 6 p.m. The sale was run by a business for profit, not a family.

I would like for the Boulder City Police Department to stop in at each garage sale and politely remind the family or business that they should pick up their signs when the sale is over. I believe our police department is now a respected part of our community. That was not always the case. I have lived in Boulder City for 47 years. I love this community.

Boulder City Police Department should then follow up by some means when the signs are left out after the sale is closed. We have a great police department now. This opportunity to contact Boulder City residents in a positive manner should not be missed.

Students’ performance of ‘Mattress’ ‘stupendous’

To Boulder City High School students who were in “Once Upon a Mattress.” Wow! What a show. What singing, acting, dancing, costuming, staging as well as action and music. You were stupendous, incredible and totally entertaining.

I am stunned by the beauty of your show. Stay and do it again next year.

Happy day.
