Issue: March 29, 2012

Dear Folks,

If sex were sugar, this week would be a diabetic issue of the Reno

News & Review. Local sex columnist Caitlin Thomas’s cover story

traces her evolution. Ben Garrido gives local band Rigorous Proof

the once-over and in Green, Ashley Hennefer covers a new way to

encourage green businesses. Jessica Santini writes about a DVD

release of short movies by Reno filmmakers. Dave Preston samples the

fare at Franz’s Backstrube Austrian Bakery Cafe. Bruce Van Dyke

takes us on another of his highway hops, this one the 450-mile trip

between Reno and Las Vegas, which he says has improved in both food

and lodging. (The scenery remains the same.) Bob Grimm writes about

the totally derivative Hunger Games. In news, we look at how the

local Democratic organization is trying to help its city council candidates.

Thank you for reading us. If not for you, we’d have trouble scoring.

Take care,

Dennis Myers
