Spotlight On Business
Having announced last year to an audience at a "Tuesday Morning" breakfast that Everett Chase was an inspiration in his youth has nothing to do with County Commisioner Bruce Woodbury and Bruce Woodbury Attorney at Law appearing in our Spotlight on Business column. Reading the article you will realize the inspiration provided by me was limited to sports.

Coincidently, Woodbury joins me and Steve Liguori (March cover), as Boulder City residents who grew up in the John S. Park area of Las Vegas. I realize there are others from Las Vegas, but are there more of you from JSP? Let me know.

Often one can sit in front of the television and listen to discussions and have no idea what the parties are talking about - especially when it comes to technology, the internet websites, etc. So be it when I looked at the TV screen the other day and said to my honey, what the heck is a blog? Brad tells us.
"BMX is Not a Crime" according to Sgt. John Chase, its a slogan and better yet a good way to help young bike riders to learn to be responsible citizens. Find out all about how the Police help the kids of BC.
We spotted several of the Ely murals Darryl Martin points out in his Let's paint this town article, but he doesn't stop there. He's hopped up on the growing number of murals we have in our own back yard - rather on our own walls around the town area.
