Dear Folks,

Autumn is just days away, and this one will include Nevada's 150th

birthday on October 31. Our Fall Guide in this week's edition offers

150 media notes about Nevada that will suggest some Nevada-related

things you could spend your time doing this fall, from reading

Roughing It to playing Fallout: New Vegas.

In Green, Sage Leehey gets dirty to tell us about how to "build" soil

that serves Nevada's peculiar farming needs. Brad Bynum profiles

Betty Rocker, a Carson City-based band in MusicBeat, and also

interviews Ron Rash, operator of a new zine and small press bookshop,

in 15 Minutes. Todd South samples the new menu at Pinocchio's, and

Bruce Van Dyke gets down among the sharks and barracudas as a skin diver.

And remember that there are features that are only in the print

edition, so pick one up. Thank you for reading us.

Take care,

Dennis Myers
