Issue: April 27, 2017

Hi there! I hope you had an excellent Earth Day last weekend. The variety of events from the Northern Nevada March for Science to the goings-on at the university and Idlewild Park was really impressive this year.

In this week's issue, you'll find several stories from News Editor Dennis Myers, including our feature story, "Latchkey kids." In it, Myers discusses how family incomes and taxes in the U.S. have changed. Over in the arts section, you'll find Myers' interview with singer-songwriter and guitarist David Crosby, of the Byrds and Crosby, Still & Nash fame.

Also in the arts section are stories from regular contributors Anna Hart and Megan Berner. Hart talked with Seattle band Dead Bars, whose members wrote a song about Reno. And Berner talked with artist Emily Reid about her paintings, which you can see at Never Ender in midtown.

If you grab a copy of the paper while you're out, you'll get access to columns and cartoons we don't publish online. And when you're done with it, you can use the newspaper to do something cool. I am currently hooked on the idea of using newspaper to make coasters and trivets. You can check out the tutorial here:

Happy reading!
