Issue: February 21, 2019

Dear Folks,

This week in the Reno News & Review, Jessica Santina will walk us through the theatre season ahead, including a little-remembered Agatha Christie play set in Egypt in 1350 BC and an Ira and George Gershwin musical set in Nevada.

Elsewhere this week, our 15 Minutes feature is an interview with a midtown merchant who is closing her doors. Bob Grimm will try to interpret Alita Battle Angel with the few clues the movie provides. And to wrap up Black History Month, we will take a look at Nevada leader Joe Neal and the new biography about him by John L Smith.

Inserted in this week's edition is our latest Family Guide, which special projects editor Matt Bieker has built around sports.

Remember there are features that appear only in the print edition, so be sure to pick one up.

Take care,

Dennis Myers

News editor
