Issue: July 05, 2012

Hi everybody,

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review. The feature story, by RN&R

editor D. Brian Burghart, is about a subject a little too serious and

downbeat for the usual flippant tone of these newsletter intros. The

story is about a child with crippling health problems that no medical

professional has so far been able to diagnose. The child's parents

hope that by making his story public, they might be able to find

diagnostic help. In Green, Ashley Hennefer updates us on the ongoing

battles between the environmental nonprofit Scenic Nevada and

billboard advertising companies. Elsewhere in the issue, film

reviewer Bob Grimm reviews Ted, the new flick about a walking,

talking, pot-smoking teddy bear, and columnist Bruce van Dyke weighs

in with his reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision

about the health care law.

As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint copy of the paper for

exclusive cartoons, columns and tactile sensations.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd never get to write

flippant newsletter intros.
