Issue: October 18, 2012
CN&R Readers, the word this week is: Poetry!
A line, a break
Your verses sent to press
Top story: your words, ninety-nine
What better way to come down from the excitement of our big Best of
Chico issue than by enjoying several lines of verse written by you,
the readers. The results of the annual Poetry 99 issue are in, and we
have all the winners in this week's issue. And, as a bonus, tonight,
Oct. 18, at 7 p.m., at Lyon Book's, the poets will be on hand to read
their pieces at live reading/celebration.
In Newslines: With the election season heating up, we take a close
look at what Props 34 and 36 will mean for California's death penalty
and three-strikes laws, respectively. Also, news editor Tom Gascoyne
checks in on Sacramento Valley Mirror editor Tim Crews and the recent
coverage that his lawsuit with Glenn County has garnered from Los
Angeles Times and Huffington Post.
In Greenways this week, Christine G.K. LaPado-Breglia looks in on a
workshop for cultivating edible perrenials that grow well in Chico,
while in Healthlines, Evan Tuchinsky writes about Enloe Children's
Health Center transferring ownership to Northern Valley Indian Health.
In Arts and Culture, we review Inspire School of Arts and Sciences
wonderful production of the classic Broadway comedy, You Can't Take
it With You as well as the riveting new Ben Affleck-directed thriller
Argo. We also highlight the new all-vegan bakery in town, Chico
Baking Co. and settle in for a drink at the bar wth
metal-guitarist-turned-acoustic crooner, Lish Bills.
Have a great weekend!
