Issue: September 18, 2014
I'm happy to report that we have a pretty impressive bunch of stories
for you this week. Our feature, penned by contributor Debra Lucero,
offers insight into the family of Lonnie Keith, the physician assistant
convicted in the kidnappings and rape of several Chico women in 2012.
His ex-wife, Kari Keith, shares intimate details about the time leading
up to her husband's arrest and the aftermath.
In other news: Staff writer Ken Smith talks with friends of Marc
Thompson, the local student activist whose body was found burned in his
car last week outside of Oroville. We also look into the incident
involving a Butte County sheriff's deputy kicking a suspect; the Chico
City Council's noncommittal response to allegations it violated the
state's open-meetings law; and big changes at the Big Chico Creek
Ecological Reserve. If you like things a little lighter, we also take
the time to wish Duffy's Tavern a hearty happy birthday.
Thanks for reading!
