Welcome to the Family Issue!
In this, our third annual Family Issue, we get to the heart of adoption.
We interview two families, the Scherberts and the Pullyblanks, who have
opened their homes (and their hearts) to children without homes. And we
talk to an older Chicoan about his journey to accepting the news that he
was adopted. We also shed some light on how local public adoptions work
and how the system has changed.
In other news: Howard Hardee gets to the bottom of the blight on East
11th Street; contributor Claire Hutkins Seda finds out why families
might choose to cohabitate; former CN&R designer Mazi Noble gets his
hip-hop fix at Lost on Main; and I get a sneak peek (and offer you one)
at some very cool history on wheels at the Chico Cemetery. Also, make
sure to check out Editor Melissa Daugherty's cutting-edge column, Second
& Flume, where she sets the record straight regarding censorship vs.
editing in the newsroom.
As always, keep reading!
