Issue: July 05, 2012
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.
