Issue: August 14, 2014
Good morning, CN&R readers!
When was the last time you walked around downtown? If you're like me, it
was about half an hour ago or so, but I know there are lots of Chicoans
who just don't make it to the city's core all that often. For many, it
might appear that downtown is suffering a setback or two. In our feature
story this week, News Editor Tom Gascoyne gets to the bottom of it and,
quick hint, the situation isn't as dire as it may seem from the surface.
In other news (and there's always other news): Editor Melissa Daugherty
checks in with all-around animal lover Tracy Mohr regarding about 70
wild horses that were scheduled to be delivered to our region next month
but now don't have a home; I attended a meeting of the Internal Affairs
Committee in which they discussed how police should respond to burglar
alarms; Assistant News Editor Howard Hardee checks up on the new primary
care facility in town; and Arts Devo finds out what's up with the Pyrate
Also, pick up the paper this week for our annual Goin' Chico special
issue designed to welcome new students (and remind the rest of us what
makes Chico so special).
And, in case you need something else to think about, Best of Chico
voting is officially open! Log onto www.newsreview.com/bestofchico for
more on our grand prize and the ballot.
Until next week,
Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
