Morning, readers,

The Camp Fire has affected many different aspects of life here in Butte County and one of the most pronounced, perhaps, relates to health care. With Feather River Hospital's future uncertain, we take a look this week at how other local providers—in addition to the hundreds of Feather River employees who lost their jobs—are handling this new normal.

In other news: A couple of local contractors, plus the town of Paradise and Butte County, are making strides to streamline the rebuilding process; local tree advocates decry the loss of 27 valley oaks in Bidwell Park; and the folks living in RVs at Silver Dollar Fairgrounds prepare to get the boot.

Until next time, enjoy this sunshine (and read a newspaper)!
