Issue: January 12, 2012

Hi, everybody,

The caucus process is a pain in the butt. In order to properly

participate, you need to be at least slightly informed about the

candidates, and you've got to talk to your neighbors about why you

think your chosen candidate is best. In this week's feature story,

news editor Dennis Myers examines the Nevada caucuses: how they came

to prominence, whether a primary election might a better option, and

whether the whole thing is even worth a damn. Also in this week's

issue, we have a review of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the first

production presented by Reno Little Theater in their new location. In

Green, Ashley Hennefer takes a look at the University of Nevada, Reno

library system's energy conservation efforts.

Be sure to pick a newsprint copy of the paper for exclusive columns

and cartoons. Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, all our

caucuses would be flaccid.
