Issue: December 15, 2016

Morning, readers!

Northern California waterways have long been points of contention for stakeholders. Our feature story this week looks at the problems they face, and how the ecosystem is faring.

In other news: We bid farewell to longtime Chico lawman Rob Merrifield; a retired local game warden shares stories from the wild; and a local woman opens up about her own adoption and how her views on the process changed when she gave her own child up for adoption.

There's always more, so pick up this week's issue!

Until next week,

Meredith J. Cooper, managing editor
