Georgia Fisher: "You may have heard of 'zombie
foreclosures,' ... homeowners who move away
without realizing banks have halted or abandoned
the paperwork, for whatever reason. Unbeknownst
to them, these families actually still own their
houses?and are on the hook for accumulating bills and upkeep, too."
This week in the Reno News & Review, our cover
story takes a look at some phantom homes,
supposedly foreclosed, and the way they weave
their way through financial institutions and the marketplace.
Brad Bynum introduces us to a young woman who
came to Reno from a rural area and documented her
introduction to the local punk scene. She is
preparing an exhibition next month. In Green,
Sage Leehey has a look at a new Sparks firm that
is competing with major manufacturers in the
diesel field. In News, there is the story of a
state agency website that was hacked.
One of our more interesting stories this week
looks at Nevada Storm, a local full body contact
women's football team whose members pay their own
way. Bob Grimm reviews Johnny Depp in
Transcendence , and Bruce Van Dyke writes some
nice things about water conservation in, of all places, Las Vegas.
