Home Sweet Henderson

Kudos to a helpful ER nurse at St. Rose
Friday, May 22, 2009
I would like to publicly thank and commend Amy, the triage nurse at St. Rose – De Lima’s emergency room, for her help earlier this week. My son burned his hand on the stove a few days prior and a blister had formed. My husband and I were convinced he was OK and without infection or pain because of the way he was acting (normal) and the colorless characteristics of the blister itself.
Check out Paseo Vista Park
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Paseo Vista Park is the hot spot for tots! I try to meet up with a friend every so often so that we can talk while our kids play. This time she suggested Paseo Vista Park.
Henderson adds another park
Friday, May 15, 2009
Henderson has a new park that will be opening this Saturday. The public is invited to the grand opening of Madeira Canyon Park tomorrow, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2390 Democracy Drive. The grand opening events are free.
Show some respect for your mother
Thursday, May 14, 2009
Springtime is a wonderful time of year to celebrate our mothers. With new flowers blooming, we are reminded of new life. Life would be absent without mothers. Henderson has roughly 375,000 residents and I would guess that a third of those residents are mothers -- maybe more -- when you factor in the amount of retirees living in our master-planned retirement communities.

ArtFest draws crowds, signals summer
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
I love ArtFest. It’s become a holiday to me, almost like Christmas, because I look forward to it every year. The weather doesn’t seem to hit “hot” until ArtFest comes. For me, the event is sort of an unofficial first day of summer in Henderson.

What’s with the stones on Water Street?
Friday, May 8, 2009
Early last week, though, some stones caught my eye. They were laid out on the ground, and I wondered if someone was constructing a sun dial. A few days later the stones were stacked into statues, looking like people. The last time I drove by a sign was also present that said "May you enjoy this tribute to mothers who have weathered the storm."

Remembering the PEPCON explosion
Monday, May 4, 2009
Ask just anyone where they were on May 4, 1988 and you’ll probably get a blank stare. Ask anyone from Henderson and you’ll get vivid recollections of “the blast”-- one of the biggest explosions in U.S. history.
Green Valley Library celebrates grand opening
Friday, May 1, 2009
Henderson residents have a new full-service library in the Green Valley area. You may be thinking, “I never saw anything under construction.” This is true, because the Green Valley Library, located at the corner of Green Valley Parkway and Sunset Road, has been there for quite some time but did not belong to the Henderson District Public Libraries until recently.
A little patience could prevent a wreck
Thursday, April 23, 2009
Recently, I was stuck in traffic at Fiesta Henderson Boulevard and Lake Mead Parkway right about 4 p.m. Afternoon traffic was heavy as usual.

Henderson Heritage Days: The way we were
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
As Heritage Days, or what is now called the Henderson Heritage Parade and Festival came and went, I thought it appropriate to share with the citizens of Henderson some history on the celebration.
Henderson loses a great educator
Wednesday, April 15, 2009
I wrote a blog back around Christmas time about the Hinman Elementary School kindergartners making handmade holiday cards and selling them as a fundraiser. To get my information, I was able to spend the afternoon at the school with the assistant principal, Mr. Cliff Kehoe. I was familiar with Mr. Kehoe because he had taught at my own elementary school, Gordon McCaw, years before, and had also been my cousins’ teacher. I had remembered him as someone everyone liked so I knew the afternoon would be enjoyable.
Dig into genealogy at the Paseo Verde Library
Monday, April 13, 2009
If you've ever wondered where your family originated from and who you're related to, there are tons of resources available to help you accomplish this right here in Henderson.
What to do with old books? Donate!
Friday, April 10, 2009
My son took an interest in books from the time he was a newborn. I'm learning first-hand the importance of reading to a child. My son is only 18 months old but he is picking up words from the stories I read to him.
It's Election Day -- Vote!
Tuesday, April 7, 2009
OK, Henderson! If you haven’t already cast a vote for our upcoming election, today is the day. The primary for the Henderson municipal election is today, but if any candidate running for office wins more than 50 percent of the vote, it’s a done deal. If not, we will still have a general election on June 2.
