Good morning, readers!

I hope you're enjoying all this rain we've been getting, even if it is a

little on the gloomy side. Luckily, it's Thursday, which means the CN&R

has some great rainy-day reading for you. Our feature story this week is

all about Chico's trees and what activists worry might happen should the

city not hire an urban forester or complete its Urban Forest Management


In other news, we check in with outgoing mayor Scott Gruendl and get a

glimpse at the newly elected City Council in action; we meet the parents

of Victor Coleman, the man who was shot to death by Oroville police

officers back in April, and hear what they have to say about the

investigation into his death; Arts Devo gets in touch with his inner

Krampus; and food writer Henri invites us to try out some of his

favorite holiday drink recipes.
