D. Brian Burghart: "I do hope you understand about me seeing other doctors..."

Dear Folks,

Our cover story this week is a "Dear John" letter from Brian Burghart

to his physician, spelling out his exasperations with conventional medicine.

Elsewhere in this edition, Bob Grimm will review the DisneyNature

movie Chimpanzee, Ben Garrido test drives three eco-friendly cars and

reports the results, and Kelsey Bauder gives a listen to the alt band

Merkin. In our "15 Minutes" feature, repeat bestselling writer Sally

Denton discusses her new book which describes an attempted coup

d'etat against the U.S. government in 1933. In Green, Ashley

Hennefer writes about problems with those new smart meters that

calculate your power bills. James DeHaven profiles city council

candidate Kitty Jung. Kris Vagner describes an upcoming bicycle art

show. We'll also tell you about a Sparks showing of a restored silent

movie classic, Wings, which won the first best picture Oscar and

starred Nevadan Clara Bow.

Thank you for reading us. Without you, we'd be trying herbs and berries, too.

Take care,

Dennis Myers
