    Watched a show about the Dam during the war and all the concerns from building dummy dams to the machine gun bunkers that are still up on the hill looking towards Arz. Also there was thought about a sum coming up from Colorado river. Has anybody noticed these machine gun bunkers before?

    I knew they were there, but only because my mother pointed one of them out to me years ago. She taught school in Boulder City during the war.
