Good morning readers!

Fall has officially arrived. I hope you're all keeping warm and well (steer

clear of that nasty cold going around if you can!).

We have some real goodies on tap for you this week: In our feature story,

Editor Robert Speer takes a trip down memory lane while checking in on the

efforts of Jonesville residents to rehab their town's historic hotel.

In other news: Christine LaPado gets to the bottom of the oil spill into

Big Chico Creek that appears to have gone completely wrong; I look into

what happened to VECTORS--the transitional housing program for veterans--this summer (they almost lost their house!); and Jason Cassidy interviews Steven Wright in advance of his upcoming performance.

Read on,

Meredith Graham, managing editor
