Morning, readers!

It may not feel like it, but it's Sunshine Week, which was designated to shine a spotlight on open meetings and public records laws. In its honor, we aimed to determine just how well local government agencies handle public records requests. Hint: Not great.

In other news: We take a look at the community court model and what it could look like if implemented in Chico; Shakespeare gets the royal treatment at Chico State; and Hibachi Grill Buffet opens (finally!) in south Chico.

There's plenty more where that came from!

Until next time,
