Matters of Importance
Hoover Dam is our cover story as well as the centerpiece for this issue. A centerpiece in the sense other main articles are related or tied in some way to the Dam.
The Southern Corridor (D), or bypass it appears, will be a new approach to the Dam, while St. Thomas, a historic consequence of the Dam, has reappeared from its watery grave.
Senator Richard Bryan discusses an important subject for the people of Boulder City related to the bypass.
I became acquainted with Richard as early as John S. Park elementary school in Las Vegas, we both grew up in Huntridge. In high school Bryan was one year behind me so I couldn't vote when he ran for Sophomore Class President, but he won anyway. His career continued as Junior Boys Treasurer, then Student Body President as a senior. No, I couldn't help Bryan in high school, but I have supported him in every public office throughout his career - I even threw a lawn party for him in BC when he ran for Attorney General - he won that too.
