Morning readers,

I'm sure by now most of you are familiar with the tiny house concept. Well, the folks at CHAT have a plan to build an entire village of them as a way to address the growing homeless problem in Chico. In this week's feature story, I look at some established tiny house villages to gauge their successes and talk with local policymakers about what stands in the way of Simplicity Village.

In other news: Students get involved in improving the south campus neighborhood; local activists take to the streets to protest the House tax bill (and Doug LaMalfa); and Editor Melissa Daugherty takes the Enterprise Record to task for missing the opportunity to scoop us on a big story.

There's always more, so please read on.

Until next time,

Meredith J. Cooper, managing editor
