Good morning, readers!

And Happy Beer Week!

Yep, you read that right. This week's CN&R is our second annual Beer Issue,

and it coincides with a celebration of all things craft-beer-related that

starts today and goes through Oct. 18. Our feature package this week is

focused on beer, as are several other stories, from a piece on wild hops in

Greenways to an interview with Feather River Brewing's Roger Preecs in 15

Minutes. Also, check out for a full schedule of

events. Hope to see you all out and about!

In other news: We take a look at the investigation into a police shooting

in Oroville in April; we check in with folks trying to implement a police

beat downtown to eliminate problems with transients; and Arts Devo says

goodbye to Chico arts maven Maria Phillips.

Until next week,

Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
