Dear Folks,

If you thought the Steven Brooks story was running itself out, we

will have new information this week. In his cover story, D. Brian

Burghart uses online sources to profile legislator Brooks from public


Our annual Family Guide will also be out this week, edited by Ashley

Hennefer and including information on parents and school, upcoming

family-friendly movies, science projects using household items, and more.

In Green, Ashley writes about the efforts of two urban farmers who

are planting crops near downtown Reno.

Nora Henston writes about the band Drag Me Under, Bob Grimm reviews

Identity Thief, and Dave Preston visits the Big Horn Olive Oil Company.

In News, we'll look at the cascade of development affecting the

proposed dump for high-level nuclear wastes at Yucca Mountain in Nye County.

There's all of that and more in this week's edition.

Take care,

Dennis Myers

News editor
