Issue: November 17, 2011

Good morning, CN&R readers,

With everybody talking about the Occupy Chico--and Occupy Wall Street--movements, contributor Jaime O'Neill takes the opportunity to look at protest, from decades ago to now, and why it matters.

In other news: Chico State radio-station alumni return to share their success stories; we give you the details on this proposed .75-cent sales-tax increase; locals share their experiences being transgender/transsexual; and environmentalists have a unique take on the 99 percent--humans are actually the 1 percent, they say.

As always, thanks for reading! And heads up: with Thanksgiving next week, we come out a day early--so you can pick us up on Wednesday!

Until next week,

Meredith Graham, managing editor
