Dear Readers,

Tom Young is well known in this valley as the co-owner of the Great Basin Brewing Company, which produces Icky, the beer named for the ichthyosaur that once swam in the waters that filled this Great Basin. This week in the Reno News & Review cover story, Frank Mullen writes about Young's actual role in the paleontology of the Basin, helping fund scientific teams at work here.

Elsewhere in this edition, we'll fit Donald Trump's Reno speech into his latest difficulties. Caitlin McCarty will tell of her experience finding a big name in the desk next to her in a UNR poetry class. Bob Grimm reviews Birth of the Dragon , a fictional recounting of an actual fight between Wong Jack Man and Bruce Lee. And Brad Bynum reports on the long-delayed release of an album by local musician Grace Gatsby.

Thank you for reading us.

Take care,

Dennis Myers
