Issue: February 12, 2015

Good morning, readers!

Are you ready to rock? Well, there are plenty of Chicoans who will rock

out with you (or for you, if you're not so inclined), and we've decided

to highlight a handful of them for our annual Local Band Issue. So read

up on some longstanding groups, some newbies on the scene, and the crazy

idea to hold a month-long concert at the Tackle Box (that just might work).

In other news (I bet you saw that coming): Medical marijuana proponents

sue over Measure A, the Oroville Cemetery is missing trees, a local

professor pens a book about climate change and, in her column, Editor

Melissa Daugherty shows us the snippier side of our vice mayor.

Until next week,

Meredith J. Graham, associate editor
