Letters to the Editor

September/October 2016 Issue

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)

    I have enjoyed reading Nevada Magazine for many years. Your articles and photography capture so much that characterizes the Silver State. However, I haven’t seen any articles about an environmental disaster that is occurring in our wonderful state: the murder of Walker Lake. To be sure, I haven’t read every issue of the magazine so I could be in error for writing that there are no articles. This beautiful sister of Pyramid Lake has dropped 182 feet since the Walker River was grossly over-allocated for crops that need a lot of water upstream. Some water rights have been legally purchased due the efforts of Senator Reid and the Walker Lake Working Group. The Walker Lake Crusaders work hard to keep this travesty in the news. I understand that Nevada Magazine is published by the state and the state seems to be turning a cold shoulder to this desert jewel. How about it? Please publish article about Walker Lake.

  2. I would like to see more diversity in the magazine and especially the Historical Calendar.

  3. Congratulations to Ms. Mueller as the new Managing Editor of Nevada Magazine! I loved the Alien Cowboys on your first issue! I read it cover to cover, not even minding how homesick it made me for Nevada!
