Thank you

Welcome to this week’s Reno News & Review.

Fun cover story this week. For some folks, in these stressful times, yoga is a helpful way to cope and manage. Hell, I have all the grace and flexibility of a wooly mammoth carcass, and I’ve still found it helpful from time to time. Yoga can be off-putting to newbies, but Anna Hart, a consistently funny writer, did a great job exploring the local scene—getting the inside scoop from an outsider perspective.

It’s also nice because most of these businesses—the local yoga studios—are small, family-owned places. And supporting small, local, family-owned businesses is a core value for us here at the RN&R.

Because we keep a firm wall up between the editorial and advertising departments, I don’t know which, if any of these places, advertise with us or which ones carry our paper in their places of business. But I’d encourage y’all to take a look at Anna’s piece, and see which places appeal to you and give them support.

And I want to reiterate my gratitude to all the local small businesses that chose to advertise with us or choose to carry our paper in their places of businesses. In these polarizing times, I know that it isn’t always easy, but I appreciate you sticking with us. Support these places, friends.

And be sure to check out the Bars & Clubs Guide in this week’s issue. Our Special Projects Editor, Jeri Chadwell-Singley, did a great job putting together a guide to getting blitzed in the Biggest Little, featuring some great stories and insights from many of our regular contributors.

Anyway. To be able to create this paper—this forum for local arts, news and entertainment for Northern Nevada—is an honor and a pleasure. And I’m eternally grateful to all the support we get from the community—from advertisers, distributors and, most of all, from readers.

Thanks, folks.
