Issue: December 22, 2011

Good morning, CN&R readers,

The end of December is finally upon us. That means Chanukah and Christmas and potlucks and parties. To help celebrate the season, local author Zu Vincent has once again penned a heart-warming short story just for the

CN&R. Enjoy!

In other news: Ash from Oroville's cogeneration plant is being used in local orchards--is it toxic?; a tour of Chico Cemetery offers a lesson in local history; Oroville Hospital is ahead of the national curve when it

comes to electronic records; and a local chiropractor invents socks to improve circulation.

Happy holidays from the CN&R family to yours,

Meredith Graham, managing editor
