Home games for Reno 1868 FC kick off at about 7:00 p.m. but for the Battle Born Brigade, game day starts as early as 4:00 p.m. The Battle Born Brigade is Reno 1868 FC's growing fan club of all ages. Every game day they meet at the iconic Believe sign in the middle of downtown Reno and march to the Greater Nevada Field where they chant original chants, bang drums and yell in support of their team. On Saturday, April 1 that is exactly what they did.

Julia Oversloot

Local resident Julia Oversloot is the author of Decency and Luck: Two Dutch Couples During World War II. It's the story of her parents, who helped a Jewish family hide during the war. They were honored by the Yad Vashem Holocaust center in Israel back in 1975 as being what is called Righteous Among The Nations. Julia will be sharing their story at the Northwest Reno Library on Wednesday, April 5, at 5 pm.

Oversloot says her parents were just everyday people who chose to do the right thing.

Reno Is Getting A Container Park

Construction started earlier this month to transform a long-vacant lot in downtown Reno into a community gathering spot. Our contributor Brook Bentley of the Northern Nevada Business Weekly reports.

The development is called The Eddy and will open next month as Reno's first container park, made with re-purposed shipping containers.

The American West is characterized by intense periods of drought and unpredictable weather patterns. For some regional artists, the weather itself serves as a muse for art and poetry.

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering brings thousands of people from around the world to Elko, to enjoy and celebrate in the cowboy culture of the American West. But some local Native Americans argue there isn’t enough representation of their stories during the annual festival.

Western Folklife Center

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering brought together musicians old and new last week to celebrate Western style music and storytelling. But what exactly is Western music anyway?
