Happy May Day!
It's Thursday, and you know what that means. In addition to being able
to officially start your weekend planning, you get your first glimpse at
the week's News & Review--lucky you!
This week former CN&R intern Tyler Ash brings us a feature story that
dives deep into the history--and the ground--of Cold War-era Chico. Have
you heard about the missile silos near the airport? If not (and even if
you have), this is a must-read. Because what lurks beneath the surface
might just be more than you imagined.
In other news, Editor Melissa Daugherty weighs in on Councilwoman Mary
Goloff's recent addiction admission. The council subcommittee on the
farmers' market is confusing to just about everyone--as is the
appearance of a pro-fracking "expert" at Chico State. And, will the
county get a hall of records once and for all? Of course, we've got fun
stuff for you too--for instance, if your'e thinking about seeing
/Spamalot/, you're definitely in for a treat. And an honest-to-goodness
Southern bluesman makes his home right here in Butte County. Plus(!!) we
unveil yet another new column, The Bottom Line. You'll just have to read
it to find out what it's all about.
Keep on reading on,
Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
