Over the past two days I have read every submitted letter regarding “Why we (still) love Chico”…. Some brought tears to my eyes, others made me laugh and smile, while others transported me back to memory lane. Overall, I was reminded that we have more in common with each other than not. Though I am late to the game, may I add one more example of why I still love Chico. Drive South on Broadway through downtown Chico. Turn West (right) on 8th Street (AKA—Hwy 32). Pay close attention to the street signs. You will pass Chestnut Street, Hazel Street, Ivy Street, Cherry Street and Orange Street. What does that spell—-CHICO——With appreciation and gratitude.
