Issue: July 16, 2015

Morning, readers!

Are in the mood for adventure? Sure, we gave you some ideas last week

for tromping around Butte County. But this week we look into the work or

Edward Abbey and his legacy of activism and championing nature lives on.

In other news: We look into allegations that Sycamore Pool is less than

hygienic these days and find out a little-known fact about the cleaning

schedule; we wish the Saturday farmers' market a very happy birthday

(35!); and we grab a bite to eat at the Bidwell Golf Course.

There's more, naturally, but you'll just have to read to find out about

it all!

Until next week,

Meredith J. Cooper, associate editor
