September/October 2016 Issue
SUBSCRIBER’S MAGAZINE MEMORY
In the latter part of 1971, I was a senior at Carson High and was offered a part-time job at Nevada Magazine. My job was to do whatever was needed. One day they gave me a stack of magazines and told me to go to the state capitol building, asking workers if they’d like to buy a copy of the magazine. The building has a main hallway running down the center with offices on each side; however, the offices have adjoining doorways making it possible to walk from one office to another without going out into the main hallway. One secretary told me to just use the adjoining door. I don’t know now if she meant just for the office next door, but I went office to office. I found myself walking into the governor’s office and he was at his desk! I was so shocked I froze, but then I asked if he’d like to buy a magazine. He was very gracious and advised this extremely shy teenager he already had one. I still laugh at the memory. — Randy Keyes, Santa Rosa, Calif.
I read the magazine and wait for it every single month with breathless anticipation. I love this magazine and I’m so excited for the ghost towns map. Keep up the great work. I’ve probably spent more time in Nevada than any guy who doesn’t live there. I lived in Portland for many years, and every single weekend that I could get away for vacation I would go to Nevada and explore. Thank you so much for what you do; it really does mean quite a bit. — Bobby Castaneda, Kansas City, Mo.
I have seen and read this magazine for many years, and is it me or does it just keep getting better and better? Love the Facebook page, website, and contests. But I love, love the photography and stories! I appreciate that they use mostly all Nevada photographers. OK, cheesy but it is a love thing…so proud of our amazing Nevada Magazine! — Dana Lee Fruend (via Facebook)
