Issue: January 14, 2016

Morning, readers!

This week we offer you our Health Issue, and this time around we

highlight the journey of a local CrossFit champion who ran across

Colorado to combat the stigma of epilepsy, which she's dealt with her

entire life. It's inspiring to say the least.

In other news: Butte County supervisors talk Measure A while the

Paradise Town Council bans growing and some delivery of medical

marijuana; two upcoming events--the Poor People's Palooza and MLK

Day--highlight diversity and shine a light on marginalized communities;

a local couple can't catch a break on their water bill; and Arts Devo

bids farewell to David Bowie.

Until next week,

Meredith J. Cooper, managing editor
