How are you handling this heat? I know, that's kind of a cliche thing to
say, but it actually does tie in with this week's feature story, which
is all about fire. Wildfires in particular. Frequent CN&R contributor
Alastair Bland interviews a slew of experts to come to the conclusion
that 2016 may just be the worst fire year yet. You'll have to read the
story to find out why.
In other news: Chico residents are in a tizzy over a couple of big-name
proposals--from Enloe and Walmart--and argue they don't take the
community into enough consideration; Butte County continues its quest to
squash the Mechoopda tribe's bid for a casino; longtime local musician
Trish Howard returns to the stage; and food dude Tuck Coop weighs in on
some of his favorite taco trucks.
Till next time,
