Issue: May 22, 2014
Good morning, readers!
We know many of you have been wondering if and when the CN&R would
deliver the goods on the upcoming primary election. Well, you're in
luck--today we unveil our Primary Issue. Our feature stories offer
insight into several of the more interesting local races, and also
include a rundown of the state campaigns. Then, if you're curious about
where we stand, be sure to check the Editorial space for our endorsements.
In other news, the farmers' market is still dominating local headlines,
this time because Chico's out-of-town city attorney held up the
signature count on a recent petition. If that seems fishy to you, check
out Tom Gascoyne's Newsline about it. I attended the county's Drought
Task Force meeting earlier this week in order to offer perspective on
local water issues. Hint: It's bad, but Butte County is avoiding the
worst of it. In arts, Jason Cassidy sits down with local screamers Teeph
to find out just what makes their, uh, teeth rattle. And in Healthlines,
Howard Hardee spends a day in high school interviewing some talented
Pleasant Valley students whose class video about mental health is making
some serious waves.
Until next time,
Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
