Tidbits from the First Issue of The Henderson Press

If I'm not doing research for books or plays, my evening schedule after the freelance writing job newsletter is complete is comprised of, for now, reading back issues of The Henderson Press via downloaded .pdf files, and toward the late-night hours, listening to audio of arguments before the Supreme Court.

So far, just from this first issue of The Henderson Press, dated Sept. 23, 2010, I've learned:

- That Henderson has the ironically-named Ocean Avenue.
- That not only is there a library within the Henderson Libraries network that's located inside the Galleria at Sunset mall (though it's a cubbyhole since it obviously can't maintain the space of, say, a Sears), but there's also one in a Target shopping center, Lake Mead Crossing, on West Lake Mead Parkway.
- Henderson Libraries was established in 1943 with one library in downtown Henderson.
- Colin Hay of "Men at Work" performed at the Henderson Events Plaza on October 8.
- The Henderson Farmer's Market has food vendors and one, at least at that time, is called Tacizza, the slogan of which is, "Tastes like a pizza, looks like a taco."
- There's Coo Coo's Cafe on West Pacific Avenue, and the ad in this issue states, "Home of the Funky Monkey Frappe." If they're still around when I get there, I want to know what's in that.
- One of the nice things about this paper is that it's got a retail/service directory with listings for mail services, auto glass, handyman service, reception services, and more. And there's also job listings, and car and real estate ads. I know that's in every newspaper, or at least used to be for some, but it's impressive to me because it's where I want to be.
