Issue: January 10, 2013

Hi everybody,

In this week's RN&R cover story, our movie critic, Bob Grimm, blesses

us all with his predictably contrarian opinions in his annual guide

to the best and worst movies of the last year. For example, he thinks

the Liam Neeson thriller The Grey is a masterpiece, but that Steven

Spielberg's Lincoln is boring. So, next time you see him at the

theater, be sure to run up and tell him how much you disagree with

his take on the year's movies. He loves that.

Also in this week's issue, we have a Gadget guide to high-tech

watches by Matthew Craggs, and Ashley Hennefer checks out The Tahoe

Food Hub's greenhouse up in Truckee, Calif. Our news editor, Dennis

Myers is on vacation, so writer Tracie Douglas is filling in. In her

first news feature, she profiles the four new faces on the Reno City Council.

As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint paper for exclusive

cartoons, columns and birdcage liner.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd have to watch all

those crappy movies that Grimm complains about in his story.
