Issue: March 05, 2020

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review. It's been a while since you've heard directly from one of the editors in this newsletter. For those of you who are still subscribed, we're grateful. It's the fourth issue of our 26th volume. So, we're 25. And it's cool to think that with the support of this community and our readers, we've been able to turn this paper out once a week for a quarter of a century now.

In this week's issue, we've got a ton of great content from our contributing writers, including our feature story about an exonerated former Nevada water official from Bob Conrad of the This Is Reno. For our news column this week, contributor Temi Durojaiye got an update on where the university intends to house its students during the next academic year and as the school continues to grow in years to come. And the RN&R's intern, Kirk Geller, checked out where those students—or any of us, really—can go for a near-campus, late-night snack. The place is called Insomnia Cookies. You can read about its origins, offerings and early morning store and delivery hours in this week's Art of the State column.

Of course, we've also got our movie review from Bob Grimm and food review by Todd South. Don't forget to grab a copy of the paper for columns that aren't available online, including cartoons by Mike Grimm and Erik Holland and Streetalk from Special Projects Editor Matt Bieker.

I'm struggling to recall how he used to phrase it when he wrote and signed off on this newsletter, but—in honor of the late, great News Editor Dennis Myers—I'd like to thank you for reading the paper. If it weren't for you, we'd all have to go into television. ... Or was it radio?

And, hey, drop us a line sometime. We love to hear from you and give you a chance to tell other readers what's on your mind. Send letters to the editor to

Best regards!
