Issue: February 04, 2016


I can't believe it's already February, and I've been with the RN&R for two months!

This week we've got an interesting mix of stories. The feature story from Sarah Aswell is about the pros and cons of personal genetic testing.

In Arts & Culture, Kris Vagner tells us about a new sculpture park in downtown Reno that will feature annual exhibits curated by different local art experts. Also in the arts section, our film guy has a review of /The Finest Hours/, a new movie based on the true events of an oil tanker that split in two during a blizzard off the coast of Cape Cod in 1952. And I'll give you the inside scoop on an interesting way to spend your Friday lunch hour.

Also in this issue, our news editor, Dennis Myers, gets into Bernie Sanders and his campaign, and talks with a Texan who's hoping to turn Nevada conservatives on to Sanders's cause.

And don't forget to check out FoodFinds, where you can read about another of Todd South's epicurean adventures. This time he visited Candelaria's Mexican Food on McCarran Boulevard.

Thanks for reading. Send us your letters to the editor. We love to hear from you.
