City Recreation

Boulder City Chiropractic came up through the loser’s bracket this past week to become the 2016 champions in the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department’s men’s basketball tournament.

In a double-header March 1, they defeated the Ragin’ Roadrunners 74-57 and then immediately faced the undefeated Credit Union. They won the game 49-43, which forced another game between the two teams because of the double elimination format.

With one loss apiece, Boulder City Chiropractic faced the Credit Union in a nail-biter game where Boulder City Chiropractic was ultimately victorious, according to Kelly Lehr, sports coordinator for the department. The final score was 48-45.

High scorers for the week were Sheldon Hutchins from the Ragin’ Roadrunners with 20 points, Shane Levin from the Credit Union with 20 points, Jake Hasselburg from Boulder City Chiropractic with 19 points, and Tyler Farias from Boulder City Chiropractic with 16 points.

Trail provides glimpse into dam’s history

A trail passes through tunnels of Lake Mead history and hints at the challenges of taming a once-wild Colorado River to harness its water and power. The mostly flat Historic Railroad Trail allows walkers and bicyclists to travel back to the early 1930s on a path where tracks once guided trains hauling materials and critical components for Hoover Dam’s construction.

Catalina evokes visions of romance, nature

For many who grew up in the 1950s or ’60s, the name of Santa Catalina will always evoke the vision of California at its most romantic, thanks to the Four Preps’ influential pop song of the same name.
