Tech savvy

These days, it's hard to find someone who isn't connected to the Internet. And most of us pay for the privilege of web surfing, gaming with friends, sending e-mails or watching movies or shows on Netflix. Well, there's quite a bit going on behind the scenes that most of us average users don't realize. The issue of "net neutrality" is heating up, and our feature story this week takes a hard look at what's really going on.

In other news: We say goodbye to a Chico legend; Parkway Elementary makes way for a preschool on campus; Chico mulls its budget; and even babies are getting the green treatment.

Till next time,
