Issue: March 19, 2020

Welcome to this week's issue of the Reno News & Review. Sadly, it will be the last one, at least for the time being. The paper's advertisers have suffered amid the coronavirus crisis, and decreased revenue from them has taken its toll on us as well. As of this week, we're suspending publication indefinitely. If you'd like to know more about this and hear perspectives from some of our longtime contributors, you can read this week's news column. Providing our community with news and entertainment has been a privilege and honor for all of us. We appreciate all of you readers and will miss hearing from you in your letters to the editor.

In our final issue, you'll find all of the same great content you're used to, including columns from our regular contributors like Sheila Leslie, Bruce Van Dyke and Bob Grimm. You'll also find a story about the Kid Rocker music program, which is working to build a love of music in local children. That's from Oliver Guinan. You can read about the art exhibition I Am A Woman's Rights: Exploring Modernity and Womanhood from contributor Mark Earnest, and story about Trans Visibility Day from Kris Vagner. Our feature story this week is about discriminatory language that still exists to this day in homes sales documents for the valley's older homes and the lasting impact this lingering language has had.

And don't forget to grab a physical copy of the paper. It's the only place you'll find our cartoons, horoscopes, advice from Amy Alkon and the Streetalk column.

Take care of yourselves. Stay healthy. Stay away from crowds. Wash your hands. Help one another out. We'll get these crazy times as a community.

Warmest regards,

Jeri Davis

News Editor
