Issue: November 17, 2016

Morning, readers,

How 'bout that climate change? Have you heard our new commander in chief call it a hoax created by the Chinese? Then he named a climate-change denier to head the Environmental Protection Agency. So, for this week's feature story, we take stock of what the future might hold, environmentally speaking, with Trump in charge.

In other news: Some faculty at Chico State question how ex-President Paul Zingg got his name on a fancy new recital hall; Chico City Council gives Walmart the green light; taking a much-needed hike in the Sutter Buttes; and a local musician learns his imagination isn't like others'.

Of course, there's more, so pick up this week's issue!

Until next week (when we hit stands on Wednesday!),
