Are you into poetry? Well, we are, and based on the sheer number of entries

we got to this year's Poetry 99 contest, we'll bet you are too. This week,

the winners--in the adult, teen and kid categories--are revealed, and their

poems printed. As an added bonus, there's a reading tonight (Thursday) at

Lyon Books in downtown Chico--everyone who's been printed will be invited

to read and everyone else is invited to watch the magic happen.

Thanks for reading,

Meredith Graham, managing editor
