River Regatta Safety

The 8th Annual Bullhead City River Regatta is just around the bend! On Saturday, August 9th, tens of thousands of floaters will drift down the Colorado River for the “Aloha” River Regatta event!   The Bullhead City Police Department hopes participants will Regatta responsibly. Here are a few tips to help make this year’s river float an enjoyable and safe experience: All participants must wear a Coast Guard approved life vest while on the water. We also suggest you wear a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, sunscreen (reapply every two hours) and water shoes or sneakers. Flip flops can easily slip off and float away, and you don’t want to come to shore in bare feet! Bring and drink lots of water. Bring a paddle or two so you can maneuver away from obstacles and toward the landing site. While floating, stay in the middle of the river and you’ll avoid most of the hazards. Stay away from boat docks and whirlpools. Boat docks line the river on both sides, which are hazardous for tubers. If you end up in the water without your tube, do NOT swim against the current. You will have your life vest on, so just float until you can get back on a tube. Do not tie more than 10 tubes together, unless you are competing in the decorated float contest. Use C-clamps for quick release. No...

Rob Reiner’s And So It Goes Provides More Groans Than Laughs

With Jack Nicholson still enjoying his retirement, it falls to Michael Douglas to swoon over the oh-so-cutesy Diane Keaton in And So It Goes, a timid, elder rom-com in the same wheelhouse as the 2003 Nicholson-Keaton team-up, Something’s Gotta Give . A film of nothing but soft edges, director Rob Reiner ‘s mushy saga concerns real estate agent Oren (Douglas), who’s first shown paying his respects at his wife’s grave on her birthday — a gentle introduction that immediately neuters the subsequent portrait of him as an unrepentant jerk who likes to shoot lawn-crapping dogs with a paintball gun, treat prospective clients with racial/ethnic insensitivity, and complain about having to see the penis of a young kid who lives above him in his waterfront Connecticut fourplex. Oren’s life is thrown for a loop when his former-addict son, Luke (Scott Shepherd ), shows up on his doorstep and tells him that he’s going off to jail and, more earth-shattering still, that he’s leaving Oren to care for the 10-year-old granddaughter, Sarah (Sterling Jerins), whom he never knew he had. If that sounds like a creaky means of kick-starting Oren’s transformation from prick to prince, it’s not as clumsy as the attendant symbolic subplot involving Sarah studying caterpillars’ metamorphosis. This science project is facilitated by Oren’s neighbor Leah (Keaton), a local lounge singer who’s prone to burst into uncontrollable tears during...
