Issue: October 01, 2015

Dear Folks,

Our annual health guide appears in the upcoming Reno News & Review,

and we are treating health with a broader meaning than usual. In the

interest of a healthy planet, the guide will include an appeal from our

company president/CEO to readers about what we can do in advance of the

upcoming Paris climate talks.

Elsewhere in the issue, Ashley Hennefer has a cover story on

research fields that are opening up at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Ashley also has a report on "escape games" that have arrived in Reno. In

Green, Kelsey Fitzgerald describes the work of students who raise, tag,

release and (if all goes well) perhaps even track Monarch butterflies.

In news, a new report on the activities of the billionaire Koch

brothers in Nevada gets center stage. Brad Bynum writes about the band

Karma, newly arrived back in Reno after a tour that cost it a member but

helped its music evolve.

Thank you for reading us.

Take care,

Dennis Myers

News editor
