Issue: May 02, 2013
Hello, CN&R friends. It's Thursday, the sun is out, and (hopefully)
the wind has died down. Time to pick up today's paper and see what
your community is up to and then get outside and join in the fun.
For this week's cover story, news editor Tom Gascoyne gives a
cops-eye view of the city of Chico. He went on two ride-alongs and
interviewed the chief of police and paints a picture of what it's like
to protect and serve at a time when diminishing budgets are making
covering the city increasingly difficult. And in other local news,
Howard Hardee reports on a huge pot bust in Butte County, and Vic
Cantu checks in on the "sit/lie" ordinance (which would outlaw
sitting or lying on public sidewalks) that the city council will be
debating at its upcoming meeting as part of its efforts to deal with
homeless transiency issues.
In the Greenways and Healthlines sections this week, Jesse Mills
uncovers the long farming history at the GRUB CSA Farm's new piece
of land, and Christine G.K. LaPado-Breglia talks to local
acupuncturist Adrian Baume about his microcurrent electroacupuncture
practice that uses low frequencies of electric current and no needles!
In Arts & Culture, California Regional Theater's production of
Seussical: The Musical gets a rave; arts editor Jason Cassidy
communes with local jammers for a gratifying weekend of music making
at The Convergence; and we take a look at the why Americans
categorize their wines by variety of grape instead of growing region.
Have a great week!
-Jason Cassidy, arts editor
