Issue: February 27, 2014
This is kind of a momentous issue for us--which isn't to say that
every issue of the Reno News & Review isn't a momentous occasion in
one way or another. But this week's cover story is the first
installment of a multi-part project that editor D. Brian Burghart has
already been working on for a long time. The series, which will cover
multiple issues over the course of the year, is Fatal Encounters, and
it's an in-depth, investigative look at law enforcement incidents
that result in fatalities. This first installment is largely about
the way the media covers these fatalities.
Also in this week's issue, our left hand columnist Sheila Leslie
actually has some nice things to say about Reno's Republican mayor,
Bob Cashell, and our right-hand columnist, Brendan Trainor, discusses
the role that libertarians will play in future Nevada elections, and
our movie critic Bob Grimm predicts what will happen at this year's Oscars.
As always, be sure to pick a newsprint copy of the paper for
exclusive columns, cartoons and newsprint smells.
Thanks for reading! If not for you, our year-long investigations
would be a lot less interesting, probably mostly just about endlessly
re-watching HBO shows.
