Editorial: Chico State tries scare tactic to justify fee increaseChico State University is threatening to cut intercollegiate athletics. We don believe it. It came out of the blue last week that Chico State athletic program, recognized as one of the best in the nation in NCAA Division II, was in danger of being eliminated. Except it not. But that what administrators would have us believe. They using the threat as rationale to raise student fees at Chico State. It an odd strategy, too. In 2011, the Chico City Council adopted a policy prohibiting smoking in all city parks. On Feb. 5 6, the KLEAN students picked up a total of 832 cigarette butts in two hours, proving that more enforcement is needed to protect citizens. To help enforce this law, more signs are needed throughout the park. I do know that by taking the action through a City Council ordinance, the council will be able to change and adapt immediately. Had the same action happened through action of the voters, any ability to change and adapt will be limited to whatever (if anything) is permitted by the voters. A Highway 99 freeway was designed in the 1950s and the beginning sections were built in the early 1960s in Chico and north of Yuba City. The plan was to continue to build the freeway north from Yuba City. All of the right of way was purchased all the way to Red Bluff with the plan to build sections at a time until the freeway was completed from Sacramento to Red Bluff. 14, 2017, our governor, Jerry Brown, signed Assemblyman Kevin McCarty Assembly Bill 424 into law? In case you missed it,

So with this law in place our schools have no way to protect themselves or our children. We are entering the Cal Water H20 Challenge where fourth to sixth grade classes complete a project that has to do with caring for our water. Our project is, Does It Take To Filter Gray Water? Our goal is to see how we can make the gray water potable again. We have made two filters: a sand filter and a plant filter. While perhaps not as knowledgeable about our presidents as van Overbeek, who thinks Gerald Ford and Harry Truman were probably the only exceptions, perhaps James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant, Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Dwight Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama and others were also exceptions. The desire to hold vast political power.Hubris. That is what was on display at the Feb. 20 Chico City Council Meeting. In one breath the conservative majority suggested they know better than the voters who should be able to run for City Council,
while in the next breath the conservative majority concur that the citizens of Chico should be allowed to vote for City Council term limits. The challenges created by Proposition 47 raising the dollar threshold for felony theft and reducing the ability to incarcerate repeat offenders places an additional strain on already challenged retail businesses. By working together to make sure that all petty theft.
