Patriotic Review 29 July 2023 The Dog Days of Summer


My fellow Patriots,

Here we are in the dog days of summer and things are heating up all over and I don’t mean the weather. I very much appreciate all the folks that turned out to protest Drag Queen Story Hour at our libraries. As expected, there were several incidents that necessitated the filing of police reports. The rainbow thieves are the instigators of these incidents and the Library Director always sides with them. He even trespassed an individual that was merely filming at the event because he insisted the individual was “inciting” people. Unfortunately, these incidents are only going to escalate, and the County is going to have to pay out huge sums when they get sued. It could all be avoided by simply removing this event from our libraries. I have talked with several of our elected representatives and asked that this event is no longer held in our libraries, but I do not hold out any hope that they will act accordingly. This is a struggle that will take an ongoing presence of Patriots at the Library Board of Trustee meetings and at the County Commissioner meetings. In response to the reading of books to children by adult entertainers, LeRue Press in conjunction with Wake Up Washoe County, is having a storytime for children featuring books by Kirk Cameron (see below). It is my hope that we fill the room to capacity so the Library Director can see just how popular wholesome stories read by normal citizens can be. What an opportunity to counter the rainbow thieves! I hope to see you there.

The Spanish Springs Citizens Advisory Board meeting will prove to be informative if not downright entertaining as there will be a presentation on the Lands Bill. This will impact many of us and I know there are many passionate views on both sides of the issue. I encourage you to research this issue and bring your opinion to the CAB meeting.

There is also a call for adults to read books and evaluate them as to their suitability in both our school and county libraries (see below).

To view the entire newsletter:


The children of Washoe County are in need of adults to step up for them and read books which must be removed from our school libraries due to the explicit content. There are over 150 books to be read, evaluated, and documented before they can be submitted with a request for removal. If 75 of us each read two books the task would quickly be completed. Will you consider reading a book or two this summer for the children of Washoe County?

Juanita Cox

  Juanita Elaine Cox passed away peacefully on the morning of July 15, 2023, after suffering from cancer. Juanita was born on February 18, 1948, in Santa Monica, California, the first daughter of John and Vernetta Sopher. The family moved to Reno, Nevada shortly after Juanita was born where she attended local schools and graduated from Wooster High School in 1966. Juanita worked for the City of Sparks from 1966 through 1976 as a systems analyst. Juanita was very active in the dog breeding and show community, where she bred collies, shelties, and salukis. In the 1980s, she became active against nuclear testing in Nevada as well as rallying against dumping nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain. Later, her activism turned towards social justice and constitutional rights protections. Juanita was an activist for 50+ years, a registered (unpaid) lobbyist for 30 years, researcher for several published books, participant in a local public access television show, a paralegal, and parliamentarian.

Juanita is preceded in death by her father John, mother Vernetta, brother-in-law James Lusk, and husband of 40 years, David Cox. She is survived by stepsons Greg Cox (Susan), Joe Cox, stepdaughter Deni Cox (Kevin), and daughter Lisa (Scott), eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, sisters Kathy Whalen (Bill) and Rosie Lusk, numerous nieces and nephews, and a large extended family. She will be missed by many.

The family will be holding a private memorial and Juanita’s friends will be holding a larger celebration of life at the American Legion, 730 4th St, Sparks on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at noon. Given Juanita’s passion for causes, in lieu of flowers, please donate to a cause that you are passionate about in her honor.
