Reno’s first soccer team already has a loyal and growing fan base. Our reporter Stephanie Serrano, with Noticiero Móvil, explores why.

A sea of blue and yellow stops traffic down Virginia Street as fans bang drums, wave flags and chant at the top of their lungs. Once in the stadium, they find their designated seats but they don’t sit down; the atmosphere is contagious.

Melisa Prior is a teacher at UNR visiting from Argentina, where those who don’t vote can be fined.

However, she does understand why some Americans aren’t interested in participating.

Senator Tim Kaine has been speaking both English and Spanish while campaigning as the Democratic vice-presidential candidate. When he recently stopped in Reno for a rally, attendees were surprised that he did not use those bilingual skills.

Kaine did discuss several issues important to the Latino community, including immigration and women’s healthcare, but attendees like Evelyn Galvan would have welcomed the use of Spanish as well. Galvan is a freshman at the University of Nevada, Reno, and a fluent Spanish speaker whose parents emigrated from Guadalajara, Mexico.
