Best day of the week? Thursday!
It's Best of Chico week, which means you helped us put together this

In news, Ken Smith covers the DA's investigation into the shooting
death of 19-year-old Breanne Sharpe during a confrontation with

Crittenden, the man on death row for brutally killing Dr. William and
Katherine Chiapella in Chico in 1987, and who was just granted a new trial.
Other highlights this week include a discussion about solar farms in
Greenways, a review of Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell at Laxson
Auditorium in Music and a glowing review by Juan-Carlos Selznick of
the new space thriller Gravity in Reel World. Plus beets! And a whole
Next week: Poetry 99
