Letters to the Editor
September / October 2014 Issue
A FRIEND INDEED
Just got the July/August issue and loved the cover—a sort of western/alien funk. Kudos! It’s eye-catching and fun. Also enjoyed immensely the article on the USS Nevada. Having stood on the remnants of the Arizona in Pearl Harbor, I was brought to a mix of sadness, solemnness, and tears. The saga of the Nevada gives me pride and reverence for the “Greatest Generation.” John Stetz, Garden Grove, Calif.
John, thank you. Nevada is rife with great scenery, but it was fun to mix things up. Thanks for your service! -MM
YOU ARE HERE
Thank you for placing a map in the magazine. It really helps when sharing it with others. We look forward to your new “travel” section; so much to share!
Miyoko Ono-Moore, Henderson
Miyoko, we’re so glad you like the map. We agree it’s a great tool. Also, look for a new travel story at
KEEP THIS; DITCH THAT
I enjoyed all of the stories in this issue. I thought they all pertained to the theme of Nevada sesquicentennial. However, more than the stories, my favorite sections are: Letters to the Editor, Up Front (always my favorite as it updates me on Nevada news), Las Vegas Show reviews (my second favorite as I use this to help me plan our annual February trip to Las Vegas) and my newest favorite—Wide Open. My least favorite: Events and Shows; not inclusive enough and takes up lots of valuable space.
John Wilda, Swanton, Vt.
John, I love your comments, and we’ll keep working on the best way to present our shows and reviews! -MM
EDITOR TO EDITOR
Congratulations on the editorship and your first issue of Nevada Magazine. I trust you will enjoy your time at the magazine as much as I did before I retired in 2006. Pretty good issue; liked a number of the features and what they were trying to do. Some general suggestions: It may be time for a redesign. A lot of publications redesign every two or three years to give the mag a new, fresh look. Some stories of 8 or 10 pages seem a bit too long; would be fun to read more stories about people, past and present. Book excerpts can be good reading. And the cover; good idea to try for unusual cover image, but not sure if it works.
David Moore, Dayton
David, your time in this chair makes you a great asset, thank you. (See one of David’s issues above.) We’ve got some changes in mind as we move out of our sesquicentennial series…keep reading! -MM
