Issue: June 19, 2014
Good morning, readers,
I hope you are all enjoying this nice weather--it's just perfect for
relaxing on the porch with a cup of Joe and the CN&R!
For this week's feature story, staff writer Ken Smith bears his soul
following the unexpected death of his brother, exploring the bonds of
family and the process of grieving. I cried while reading it. More than
once. Consider yourself forewarned. (But don't even think of letting
that stop you from reading it. It's a beautiful piece.)
In other news: Howard Hardee and Tom Gascoyne take on the Chico City
Council's marathon budget session and its decision to allow the Saturday
farmers' market to stay put; contributor Catherine Beeghly has a
colorful conversation with a pirate for 15 Minutes; and fellow
contributor Alastair Bland attempts to get to the bottom of just where
all the Pliny the Elder has got off to.
Of course, there's more--you'll just have to pick up the paper or click
the links below to discover it!
Until next week,
Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
