Hi Readers,

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review!

Here in the newsroom, we pride ourselves on knowing the ins and outs of Reno culture. So, this week was pretty exciting for us because we learned a lot about some of the interesting people and places we don't hear about every day.

First off, did you know that back in the '80s, Reno's own Lily Crabtree played Corporal Kelly on the TV show "Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling?" She's got a lot of other stories as well. Editor Brad Bynum got to hear some of them recently, and you can read about them in his cover story, "Lady of the ring."

Our ace contributors scoped out a couple more things we hadn't known about. In Foodfinds, Todd South recommends a little-known lunch spot in Carson City. In Green, Josie Luciano tells us why a lot of tomato seeds don't grow very well in the high desert and found out which ones do. And for Art of the State, I got the goods on an out-of-the-way artist residency program in Silver City.

In News, Jeri Chadwell-Singley unravels the intricacies of a water use rights issue, and Dennis Myers keeps keeping tabs on misleading marijuana studies.

I hope you learn a lot from this issue. And be sure to pick up a paper copy so you can have Eric Marks' cool photo of Lily Crabtree on your breakfast table all week.

Thanks for reading us! We sure are glad to be your independent alt weekly.

Keep in touch,

Kris Vagner
