Dear Folks,

Holiday lists are popular at this time of year, and they make up our

cover story this week in the Reno News & Review. Check out the lists of

best and worst holiday music, children's books by Nevada authors that

will make good gifts, less likely places to shop, and others.

Also in music this week, Brad Bynum writes about the latest local

company to make a go of vinyl. In Green, Kelsey Fitzgerald covers a

University of Nevada, Reno scientist who tracks climate change in the

Great Basin. In news, we report on the gun control battles on Capitol

Hill and Sen. Harry Reid's role.

Remember that the deadline for our 95-word fiction contest draws near.

Take care,

Dennis Myers
