Issue: September 03, 2020

Dear readers:

The CN&R editorial team continues to tell stories of our community and the September print edition just hit the streets with a new batch:

Under the lingering haze of smoke from this season’s wildfires in the North Valley, Ashiah Scharaga visits Concow where residents in the rural community are still struggling to recover from the Camp Fire of two years ago.

Ken Smith reports from the site of Everhart Village, a new tiny-house community for homeless that Chico Housing Action Trust is getting to break ground on. Evan Tuchinsky writes about the Chico Certified Farmers Market, which celebrates its 40th birthday with a new 8-year lease in downtown Chico.

On the arts front, the CN&R invited 11 local artists to share their quarantine works for a newsprint art show, and Trevor Whitney interviews the manager of La Flor de Michoacán Paletería y Neveria, which just opened its fourth ice cream shop in Chico.

Coming next month (deep breath): the election issue—out Oct. 8. Should be a doozy!

Thank you, as always, to all the supporters who continue to help fund the CN&R’s editorial staff with donations. We will continue to honor your investment by telling the community’s stories and speaking truth to power.

Jason Cassidy
CN&R interim editor
