Parents of middle schoolers rejoice! The opening of the new Marce Herz Middle School (MHMS) will be a huge boon for our community.

Students from the South Reno neighborhoods of ArrowCreek, Montreux, Saddlehorn, Fieldcreek, Mount Rose, Galena Forest and St. James Estates currently have to make the trek 10+ miles to Pine Middle School, which is located near Meadowood Mall off Neil Road. With the first bell at 7:20am, those students taking district transportation often have to hop on the bus as early as 6:30am. In the winter months, this means waiting for the bus before the sun even comes up.  

When MHMS opens this August 2020, it’ll be in a much better centralized location. Situated at 13455 Thomas

About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. These are mothers, sisters, aunts, friends, spouses, significant others, co-workers.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, national and local organizations work together to increase awareness of the disease. Awareness is key, because when it is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 100%, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms. This year, Dickson Realty will help raise awareness by changing

This month’s Partner Spotlight shines bright on Lacey Dremann, owner and principal designer of First Impression, a luxury home staging company here in Reno, Nevada. We have collaborated with her on projects in the past and have seen first-hand how a professionally-staged home can make a huge difference in both the selling price and days on the market.

Whether it’s staging a completely empty home or complementing existing furnishings, it’s all about creating an emotional connection. Buyers will ask themselves, “Could I live here?”

We had a chance to sit down with Lacey and she shared some great insight about herself, her business, and the industry in general. Read on to learn more in this enlightening interview.

A new middle school is coming to South Reno in 2020!

The Taylor Creek Visitor Center is the place to be this weekend to see the kokanee salmon make their way upstream for spawning.

The Fall Fish Festival returns on October 6 – 7 from 10a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and all of the salmon have turned bright red just in time. The Taylor Creek Visitor Center is located on California Route 89 about 3 miles north of South Lake Tahoe. The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit hosts the event in collaboration with Great Basin Institute and the festival offers opportunities to learn about native fish species in Tahoe and its tributaries. The Lahontan cutthroat trout is considered “threatened” as a species by the federal government.

In just two weeks, one of Lake Tahoe’s greatest secrets will be unveiled.

At the bottom of Emerald Bay are the sites of more than a dozen sunken vessels. California State Parks will open an underwater trail to four sites in Emerald Bay leading visitors through a boat graveyard. Take a boat and peer down into the wreckage dating back from the 1920s and ‘30s. State park divers found two large barges and a dozen recreational boats, including a vintage 27-foot launch. Denise Jaffe is the associate state archaeologist who headed up the project and a scuba diver who helped develop it.

This is the largest and most diverse group of sunken small watercraft of their type in their original location. The trail will be called the “Emerald Bay Maritime

All women, all entrepreneurs, all inspired.

Inspire Reno is changing up the business game for women in Reno. Susan Ackerman was struck with a vision when she attended an all-women entrepreneur event. After seeing folks listening attentively to a workshop leader, huddled around tables networking over coffee, a room full of like-minded people who are chock-full of ideas, she knew. She went to the owner and asked to lease the building housing the event, a historic mansion disguised as an office building along the Truckee River in downtown Reno.

From that, Inspire Reno, a women’s entrepreneurial development center, was born. Ackerman is an author, speaker, motivator and entrepreneur in her own right. When she got the go-ahead to lease the 3,900
