Reasonable Reporter ventures out with a camera
No hint of recession at the Reno Barnes & Noble on Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. The café was packed with latte-sipping book lovers. Customers browsed the shelves. Some leaned over the second-floor railing and watched a women’s choral group tucked between the escalators below, singing Christmas carols. Nearby, a table, where mother-and-daughter authors autographed books. Former Congresswoman Barbara Vucanovich signed her book, From Nevada to Congress and Back Again, with daughter and former executive director of the Nevada Commission on Ethics Patty Cafferata, who’s published nearly a shelf’s worth of books about Nevada history.
Wednesday, December 2: Volunteers from Planned Parenthood protested the Stupak amendment, led by Public Affairs Veep Alison Gaulden. The group rallied in front of the federal court house in Reno (where Senators Harry Reid and John Ensign keep offices).
Gaulden: “We cannot have health care reform that leaves women worse off than they already are, so we need Senator Reid to hold firm on not accepting anti-choice amendments and we need Senator Ensign to not support any amendments that may come up.”Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
