Good morning, CN&R readers,

Ever wonder how 5th Street Steakhouse cooks its steaks to perfection every time? Or how Carlos over at El Paisa taco truck prepares carnitas? We offer you a chance to peer into the kitchens of some of Chico's top chefs, with hints on how to make some of their specialties at home.

In other news: Police Chief Mike Maloney readies for retirement (at 50!); the occupy movement takes over Chico State; and Editor Robert Speer looks at a city (much) more messed up than Chico in From This Corner.
