clumsy headline, out-of-contex/syntax text. what's the rush? try "knocked down". "middle of the brush"-wha, no split ends? drop the "now" from the headline. already. use "District" with 'the Truckee meadows', etc. use some commas in the hurried sentences. stay off the hand-held yer squelching all channels!
