If you’re wondering what to do this Friday night, especially when we’re supposed to have one of the coolest days this summer, you might want to head over to the Henderson Events Plaza on Water Street. The City’s Cultural Arts and Tourism Department have planned something new that should please just about everyone.
School is out and the kids are bored. Summer break can be especially boring for “tweens,” the kids approaching and just experiencing their teenage years. They aren’t old enough to get a job, yet are too young for playgroups at the park.

I attended Councilman Andy Hafen’s election party tonight to await the results in the mayoral race. My family tree goes way back with the Hafens, and I wanted this more than anything for Andy. He has worked so hard.

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.

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.
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.
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.
