Desert Companion 'Focus on Nevada' Photo Showcase On Tour
Earlier this year Desert Companion held its 2nd Annual 'Focus on Nevada' photo contest and published noted entries in its June 2014 issue. Amazingly beautiful photography of Southern Nevada including people, places, abstracts and even photos taken with smartphones were submitted. The response to the eye-catching photography was so positive that we are taking it on the road.
From now until November 1, you can check out the stunning photography at various Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations throughout the valley.

New this year - Turn in your unused or expired medications for safe confidential disposal and destruction. Excess medicines in the home are the leading cause of accidental poising and flushed or trashed medicines can pollute our drinking water. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high – over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.
