City Recreation, July 25

Credit Union leads league

Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department’s men’s summer basketball league is underway with Boulder Dam Credit Union in the lead.

Big scoring from Ryan Emling (averaging 18 points per game) and Joey Felsenfeld (averaging 11 points per game) are keeping the Credit Union at the top of its game and in a good seeding position for the end of the season tournament, said Kelly Lehr, sports coordinator.

The six-team league seems to be evenly matched with new scoring leaders weekly, she said. Now, halfway through the regular scheduled games, there is a three-way tie for second place. Slow and Steady, Woodbury Law and B.C. Kids are all jockeying for position with Average Joes and All Kinds Services close behind.

Antione Hines (Slow and Steady) is the high scorer this season with 33 points in a game. He is followed by Justice Augustine (All Kinds Services) with 27 points, Bailey Gossard (Average Joe’s) and Mike Trenski (Slow and Steady) with 26 points each, and Nate Hafen (Woodbury Law) with 25 points.

Games are played Tuesdays and Thursdays through Aug. 6. The regular season will be followed by a double-elimination tournament, which runs through Aug. 20. Games begin at 7 p.m. and are played until 10 p.m. at the department’s new gymnasium, 900 Arizona St.

League standings: Boulder Dam Credit Union 4-1; Slow and Steady 3-2; Woodbury Law 3-2; B.C. Kids 3-2; Average Joe’s 2-3; All Kinds Services 0-5.

Mojave Desert home to Joshua trees

To outsiders, the Joshua tree might look nightmarish and threatening, with its daggerlike spines and odd, sometimes grotesque growth habit. But to most Mojave Desert dwellers it is strikingly beautiful. In the morning light, or under a full moon, the Joshua tree’s silhouette is the definition of drama. And because they grow almost nowhere else, to see one is to know we are home.
