"Bitcoin simply asks the question, Are you going to trust a
government or are you going to trust a worldwide system monitored and
maintained by the individuals most concerned with keeping it stable
You've probably heard of it, but if you're like most of us, Bitcoin
is a mystery. This week in the Reno News & Review, Brian Burghart
gives us a long look at the aspiring currency.
In MusicBeat, Brad Bynum profiles a local band that once advertised
its influences as Christmas songs, superhero songs, and TV theme
songs. In our inside-back-cover feature 15 Minutes, Brad also
interviews Laci Bell Crow of the charity Dining for Women.
In Green, Sage Leehey reports on the completion of the long-sought
Nevada power line linking north and south. Bob Grimm will tell us
whether I, Frankenstein is a monster or a dream, and Bruce Van Dyke
offers a defense of Nevada alum Colin Kaepernick. In Arts & Culture,
Clint Demeritt pays a visit to the archery range Washing Arrows. In
news, we report that the unfortunate news surrounding the Galaxy
plane crash memorial grove of trees goes beyond a stolen plaque.
We hope you'll read us this week. Without you, to coin a phrase, we'd
be a bit lost.
