Issue: June 30, 2016

Hey everybody,

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review.

Do y'all know Jake Highton? He's a professor emeritus of journalism at the

University of Nevada, Reno, and he's written several books and columns for

various local and national publications. For the RN&R over the years, he's

written essays about atheism, capitalism, and the First Amendment. In this

week's cover story, he makes the case for why an avowed leftist, such as

himself, would be better off voting for Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton.

It's an essay with zero chance of being contentious.

Also in this week's issue, our special projects editor, Jeri

Chadwell-Singley, examines the Nevada ballot initiative about firearms, and

arts editor Kris Vagner profiles a local man who might have ... maybe ...

possibly ... made a startling archaeological discovery.

And movie critic Bob Grimm delivers a blistering takedown of the new


Day flick.

As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint copy of the paper for exclusive

columns, cartoons and all the building materials needed to construct an

amazing paper airplane.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd have no idea who to vote


Brad Bynum

RN&R Editor
