I recently went to the "Doctors' Wives" garage sale thing that was happening a couple of weeks ago and bought a nice pair of speakers for $20. They were a steal and although I have to do a minor amount of work on one of them, they're amazing! I hooked then up to my parents' amp and we've been having a great time with them. However, I didn't realize this garage sale was only once a year, and they had a lot of other nice, vintage speakers for $20. I want a pair for my room and a new amp so I can listen to music or the radio in bed. While craigslist has some good speakers and amps sometimes, and the SPCA also has some good stuff, I was curious if there was a store or another thrift store that sells that kind of stuff. Googling only returns Beat Buy and car audio places. Thanks!!
I need to have a ring resized. The ring is in Reno Nevada. The ring holds a great deal of sentimental value and I don't want to be worrying about hypothetical bad outcomes. Does anyone have a recommendation for a reputable jeweler or jewelry repair business in Reno?

My girlfriend and I are visiting Reno to see my parents for Christmas. My parents are older (early 60's) and really enjoy doing "cool" things. We live in Portland and when my parents visit here they always have a great time and really enjoy doing the "cool" things we like to do. The thing is... [more inside]

Does anyone know how I can get this article from the Reno Gazette-Journal about the Harvey's Lake Tahoe bombing, for free? You can access the depreciated site here, but the links and images are all dead. I searched on their archives, but it looks like you need to buy all the parts of the article separately.

I need to hire a professional photographer for a brief shoot to take some pictures of a client in Reno, NV, for the cover of her upcoming Random House book. I have googled a bunch of local photo professionals and emailed them via the contact forms on their sites but haven't heard back from any of them. Is every photographer in Reno swamped with work, or is there a better source for listings of active professionals there?
