Issue: August 06, 2020

For the second time since the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything, SN&R has a print issue out this week.

The cover story focuses on detectives reopening a Roseville cold case—the brutal killing of “the Can Lady” in 1984. We have our usual features, including Ask Joey, Ask 420, 15 Minutes and the Garden column.

Our next print issue will be Sept. 3. Instead of our annual Best Of issue, we’re recognizing pandemic heroes—and nominations are open until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 9. To respond to a recent story, you can send a letter to the editor (150 words maximum) to

And you can help us continue our reporting, including on the pandemic.

Thanks to all those who have donated already.
