Morning, readers!

Do you remember the East Area Rapist, aka the Golden State Killer? This week's feature story dives into his effect on the people trying to hunt him down, including the author of a book whose search contributed to his arrest. CN&R Editor Melissa Daugherty identified with the piece and penned this week's Second & Flume about growing up in the Bay Area with a justified fear of creeps.

In other news: Local attorney Ron Reed faces a gymnasium full of concerned neighbors of his proposed Base Camp, a transitional facility for mentally ill homeless people in Thermalito; the Butte County supervisors extend relaxed low-density building regulations to all rural areas; and business is booming in Oroville's old Walmart space.

There's more, for sure. Pick up a paper today!

Till next week,

Meredith J. Cooper, managing editor
