Issue: January 18, 2018

Hey there! Welcome to this week's edition of the Reno News & Review. There is a lot going on around town in the next few weeks, including the second Women's March, taking place this Saturday starting at 11:30 a.m at the Bruce R. Thompson Federal building, 400 S. Virginia St. Last year's march was awe inspiring. The crowds, the signs and the feeling of camaraderie were all incredible. Take a look at Sheila Leslie's column and our editorial this week; both address the march.

This week's feature story is about pedestrian safety. It comes to us from a University of Nevada, Reno graduate student named Jaquelyn Davis, who has firsthand experience with the horrors of what happens when vehicles strike people. Also in this week's issue is a piece from News Editor Dennis Myers about a problem attorney general Jeff Sessions faces in his war on marijuana—Republicans.

In the arts section we've got a story from our food writer, Todd South. It's a roundup of his favorite appetizers at the restaurants he's visited in the last year. Our Musicbeat story this week is about STRFKR, an indie rock band from Portland that will perform at Cargo Concert Hall this Sunday.

We also have our annual Bridal Guide this week. It's one of my favorite guides we do each year. Check it out for stories about best man speeches, trends in same-sex weddings and the reasons a couple may want to discuss the possibility of divorce before ever tying the knot.

And don't forget to grab a physical copy of the paper. It contains cartoons and columns you won't find online, including Streetalk. This week, I asked people to tell which is the most dangerous street in Reno.
