Issue: February 23, 2017
Here are a couple of cliches about living here: "If you don't like the
weather in Reno, wait five minutes" and "you're not a real Nevadan until
you learn to appreciate every shade of brown." The former sentiment has
been ably demonstrated by the weird, wild weather around the region
lately. It's lurched from sunny to snowy, from arid to flooding, from
winter wonderland to hellish apocalypse with all the emotional
volatility of a teenager on cocaine.
But appreciating the brown means heading out to the desert. Arts writer
Josie Luciano headed out in search of some of the large-scale,
desert-inspired artworks around the region. In this week's feature
story, she presents her full report.
Also in this week's issue, Special Projects Editor Jeri Chadwell-Singley
writes about an issue near and dear to the hearts of many Nevadans—our
state's wild horses. Movie critic Bob Grimm takes on Matt Damon's new
flick, and columnist Bruce van Dyke continues his ongoing battle against
idiocy and imbecility. Also be sure to check out our Family Guide this
week—it's all about reading.
As always, remember to pick up a newsprint copy of the paper for
exclusive columns, cartoons and something to put your muddy boots on.
Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd have nowhere to spout
