A Performing Arts Center We Should Support
I can’t remember the details, but I believe the NLTRA funded a region-wide arts study which addressed the issue of size of performing arts centers. If I remember correctly, the study encouraged multiple smaller scale, and intimate, performing art centers. I think we should be supporting this one, and I thought the building design is appropriate for the use and likely affordability is a factor. Please join me in asking the town to waive and/or dramatically reduce the impact fees for this community-minded project.

Doesn’t Fit Town Character
Oh, I thought it was on hold because the renderings look like something out of Stockton or Los Banos (no pun intended), and nothing like the beautiful, historical architectural integrity of downtown Truckee.

Attention to the Plight of Wild Horses
Thank you for the wonderfully written Parting Shot featuring the wild horses of the Onaqui range.
There is much debate now over land use in Nevada and the wild horses are unfortunately, quite literally, losing their ground. It is commonly said that the wild horses are starving and suffering, but this is not the case 90% of the time.
Their fate at the hands of the BLM will, however, end in death. Pieces such as this will hopefully make more people aware of their plight and work toward finding a solution to shared land use. Wild horses are part of Nevada’s and the nation’s natural history, and should be preserved.
