Morning, readers!

We've got some cool stories to keep you company this week, starting with

our feature, which is all about the effort behind--and during--the Chico

Breaks the Record attempt at the Tackle Box. A local writer and musician

offers his insights on how the plan to create the longest continuous

concert, according to Guinness World Record rules, brought together an

entire community. A great read!

In other news: The City Council weighs in on budget issues; BEC seeks

out volunteer plant-waterers for the summer; a local filmmaking couple

gets a big TV deal; and Arts Devo releases his annual list of summer jams.

As always, there's lots more in there, too.

Until next week,

Meredith J. Cooper, associate editor
