Issue: October 08, 2015

Morning, readers!

Who's ready for some beer?! OK, maybe not just yet .... but it is almost

lunch time :) This week we celebrate Beer Week with our annual Beer

Issue, in which we not only feature a whole lot of stories about beer,

and beer-making, and beer tasting, but we also have a snazzy pull-out

calendar chock-full of all your Beer Week happenings. (Online, it can be

found at Cheers!

In other news: Walmart is back with its plans to expand the Forest

Avenue store; the City Council considers pushing its ordinance to crack

down on homelessness to cover the whole city; Chico State students take

part in a 24-hour animation contest; and Editor Melissa Daugherty weighs

in on California's version of Oregon's Death with Dignity Act.

As always, there's more. Why not sit back and enjoy a story or two with

an ice-cold brew? In fact, the kick-off for Beer Week, Brew Fork: A

craft beer and food truck rally is happening tonight: 5:30-8 p.m,

Manzanita Place. I'll even be there pouring beer till about 7! Hope to

see you there!

Till next week,

Meredith J. Cooper, associate editor
