Issue: October 23, 2014

Good morning, readers!

I hope everyone is ready for the upcoming election. Just in case you're

not quite there, though, we at the CN&R have put together a whole

Election Issue just for you! Check out our feature stories, which

include a Q&A with Chico City Council candidates (note, the online

version is unedited--for more concise answers, check the print edition);

a rundown of propositions and an in-depth look at Proposition 1; and a

comparison of Measures A and B--the medical marijuana cultivation

measures. Also check the News section for the dirt on a proposed

half-cent sales tax increase in Paradise. And, what many people have

been waiting for, are the CN&R endorsements. Find 'em in Editorials.

In other news: The Chico City Council shines some sunshine on city

salaries and benefits; there's a new cupcake slinger in town; and Arts

Devo gives us the skinny on Beer Week.

Thanks for reading,

Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
