Good morning, readers, and Merry Christmas!

To celebrate the holiday, we're bringing you our annual Christmas

fiction, a touching story written by local author Zu Vincent. (We also

have an interview with Santa--check it out!)

In other news, you'll find an update on the county's lawsuit against

polluters Covanta, a rundown of what happened when law enforcement

caught a man looting Lake Oroville, and a cool feature on how one Chico

State student is working to crowdfund her research, which could help two

endangered species in Hawaii.

Until next week,

Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
