If you have been walking around lately you may have heard a new voice at some crosswalks in Reno telling you when it’s safe to cross. It’s the new standard implemented by the City of Reno for all crosswalks. Reno Youth Radio’s Molly Concialdi has the story.

Senate Bill 261 gives doctors the ability to prescribe drugs designed to end the life of a patient with less than six months to live.
