Mornin', Chico!

Are you feeling weird yet? If not, just take in this week's feature

package for a good dose of the strange, the bizarre, the wonderfully

eclectic people and collectives who make Chico such a special place to

live. This is all gearing up for the second installment of the Keep

Chico Weird Talent Show, Jan. 31 at the El Rey. So, weird up!

Also on tap: We look into the bizarre string of events that got a Chico

man on the FBI's radar and included in an ACLU lawsuit against the feds

(hint: it might have to do with his religion); the City Council is set

to reconsider annexation; and a Chico State grad makes clothing out of hemp.

Keep it weird, Chico!
