Issue: January 24, 2019

In this week's SN&R, we launch a new Voices section, which brings together letters to the editor, the Streetalk feature, the 15 Minutes interview, Jeff vonKaenel's Greenlight column (this week calling for a war on drugs that actually works) and an expanded editor's note (this week on the man in charge of economic justice in Sacramento). It also includes more voices from the community—and this week, there are five essays on local issues, including police accountability and the cost of living.

In News, Scott Thomas Anderson writes about the latest group to join the legal and political battle over the gig economy—strippers. Raheem F. Hosseini details how a holdout juror almost caused a mistrial in a triple murder case.

Also starting this week, there will be more coverage of the local arts scene. Reid Fowler explores the Bruce Nauman exhibit at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis. Mozes Zarate went by the Diversity Expo after the Martin Luther King Jr. Day marches. Maxfield Morris reports on the scene at the Elton John concert at Golden 1 Center.

And in Dish, Shoka writes about the SacTown VegFest, which moves to a new venue this year.
