Issue: July 13, 2017

Hey, and welcome to this week's issue of the Reno News & Review.

The feature story is an excerpt taken from the book Out of the Neon Closet: Queer Community in the Silver State by Dennis McBride. It tells the story of Suzanne Lindley Daly, a transgender woman who lost custody of her daughter in an ugly legal battle after undergoing sex change surgery in the early 1980s.

News Editor Dennis Myers took some time to look at a new study that suggests dire consequences for the Great Basin as a result of climate change. You can read about it in this week's news segment. Over in the arts section, you'll find a theater review from regular contributor Jessica Santina, and a story about Reno rock band Reptile Roots League from Matt Bieker. We also have a story from Nisha Sridharan, a local grad student and native of southern India, who sampled Reno's Indian cuisine and put together a helpful guide to it.

Be sure to pick up a copy of the paper for columns and cartoons that aren't online. And, if you're a local, don't forget about the next Rollin' on the River concerts, which take place at Wingfield Park in downtown Reno. This week, it's openers Bazooka Zoo at 5:30 p.m., followed by Mojo Green. You can learn more about the concert series by visiting this website:

Happy reading!
