Looking for a hat

I need to find a replacement for my Frank Crowe hat to buy or borrow for Friday evening. I have a, take this is you will, large head. If you can help let me know. I will be doing a shortened version of my Frank Crowe monologue this Friday night at the Boulder City Theater (tickets at the door) starting at 6:30 PM.

Legacy of the Republican Party

Did you know that the vice, organized crime and both dark and more colorful side of the history from World War I, through the Roaring 20's and the Great Depression of the 1930's were controlled by Republicans? The Republican parties of New York and Chicago were under the solid control of some of the most famous mobsters of the 20th century. Al Capone, when driven from the north side of Chicago, was founder and chair of the Republican Party in Cicero, Illinois.

Dam Bridge Overlook

The view from the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge is limited but spectacular. Drivers will have the top portion but be shielded from the view for protection from high winds and to avoid accidents and delays by those who would be tempted to slow down and view the dam. Pedestrians have a walkway on the lower level of the bridge, but cannot look downstream at the spectacular canyon and river views. They will be able to see the dam, which is far below them and upstream.

The dam will seem smaller than it really is, since the bridge is higher and the dam sits deep within the canyon, as seem from a view which would have previously required climbing quite a distance.





Because it spans from Nevada to Arizona the bridge has been named jointly for Phoenix NFL player turned controversial war casualty Pat Tillman and former Nevada Governor, journalist, historian and innovator Mike OCallaghan.

From the bridge you have to wonder at the engineering marvel, sacrifices and major commitment it took during the height of the depression to tame the Colorado at Black Canyon, and provide irrigation, flood control, water and electricity to what would become great southwestern cities and vast farmlands.
