Your wonderful “Homegrown Events” feature in the January/February 2013 issue [shown at right] missed one of the quirkiest. In Baker, gateway to Great Basin National Park, the Snake Valley Festival celebrates community preservation and rural roots. This year it is June 14-16.
The centerpiece is the short Saturday morning parade. It’s so short we go around twice. The weekend’s “fun’raising” events start with a Friday ice cream social and end with the Sunday Snake Valley Slither run/walk, with live and silent auctions, booths, and kid-friendly activities on Saturday. Come check us out this year!
More Jan./Feb. 2013 feedback:
My grandpa loved the “Your Nevada” article [in the January/February 2013 issue]! He received a couple of phone calls from people telling him how much they enjoyed it. Clyde Biglieri, who submitted the 2012 Historical Calendar photo, also called him and was excited to read the story. Thank you!
PRINT SIZE MATTERS
While reading the January/February 2013 edition it occurred to me that the print size over the years has become very small. Please refer to a 1973 magazine. Some (many) of us old folks—I am 76 this year—have trouble reading the small print, though it is a fine picture magazine. I would also enjoy reading the articles.
Although our print size is indeed smaller than it was 40 years ago, we feel like the type size is in line with other regional magazines, comparatively speaking. Please e-mail us or send us a letter if you agree with Mr. Violet and would like to see an increase in type size.
