Issue: January 02, 2014

Dear Folks,

In our cover story this week we look at plans for a Nevada court of

appeals being promoted by the Nevada Supreme Court. The issue will be

on the ballot in November 2014.

Bob Grimm's look at The Secret Life of Walter Mitty may surprise you,

and Georgia Fisher's examination of The Spy Shop may interest those

who have driven by and wondered about a place with that name. Laura

Davis profiles the Dead Winter Carpenters, a North Lake Tahoe band,

Sage Leehey covers geothermal industry awards to companies and

individuals, and Bruce Van Dyke offers advice to those undertaking

the melancholy responsibility of caring for an Alzheimer's victim.

Brad Bynum looks ahead at plans for 2014 events at the Nevada Museum

of Art, and in news we'll throw a light on how local governments are

handling the job of implementing (or not) Nevada's new law providing

for medical marijuana dispensaries.

We hope you'll consider this issue a good way to start the new year.

Take care,

Dennis Myers
