Three state legislators and several former student leaders criticized Chico State University President Robin Wilson for attempting to take over student-run campus businesses. Rusty Areias (D-Salinas), an assemblyman and former president of the Associated Students at Chico State, hailed the student-run bookstore, copy shop and food services as efficiently run operations that provide student jobs and help keep costs down.

Administrators at what Playboy magazine once labeled the nation's top party college are considering policies aimed at reducing students' alcohol intake. If the new policies take effect at 16,000-student Cal State Chico this fall, there no longer will be beer company-sponsored keg rolls for charity, advertisements for alcohol in the student newspaper or drinking mugs in the bookstore.

February 11, 1996 | Sandy Masuo and Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
On their 1992 debut album, Arizona's Gin Blossoms turned out a dozen songs saturated with romantic angst and tinged with a poignantly tragic edge that unfortunately came to fruition in 1994, when guitarist and key songwriter Doug Hopkins committed suicide. But such songs as "Lost Horizons," "Hey Jealousy" and "Found Out About You" had a bracing emotional resonance even before his death made them ominous.
OPINION
May 10, 2009
Re "Protection for all in same-sex marriage," Opinion, May 3 When Robin Wilson claims that exemption laws "allow Americans with radically different views on moral questions to live in peace and equality in the same society," she forgot to include the word "separate," as in "Americans will live in 'separate' peace and equality." Separate cannot be, by its very nature, equal. Are gay people citizens or aren't they? We have the right to be religious; we do not have the right to impose our religious views on others.

If your pollen allergies are acting up and getting you down, don't despair. There are steps you can take that can make a real difference. Avoiding pollen altogether is probably impossible (unless you live under a dome, in which case you have plenty of other problems). But there are ways to limit your exposure. Keep your doors and windows closed and run a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. Keep your car windows closed and run the air conditioner. Check the pollen count (one good site is http://www.pollen.com/allergy-forecast.asp )

It's usually daring for a band to preview an unreleased album in concert, but the Gin Blossoms weren't exactly going out on a limb Friday night at the Hollywood Palladium. The capacity crowd may not have known the words to most of the Tempe, Ariz.-based quintet's "new" numbers, but you can bet they still knew the songs. After all, the new songs sounded just like the "old" songs.

An annual celebration at California State University, Chico, erupted into a riot this weekend as more than 2,000 students and others smashed windows, stomped on cars and hurled bottles at police, authorities said. Local hospitals treated 32 people, including at least two police officers, mostly for cuts sustained from broken glass. Police said 37 people were arrested on charges of unlawful assembly, failing to disperse and assault on a peace officer or firefighter.

A few hours of charged, feel-good pop emerged at the Greek Theatre on Saturday, the latest stop on a summer tour teaming the neo-hippie rock of the Spin Doctors with the Gin Blossoms' emotional jangling and Cracker's wry Angst. On the surface, the combination of acts might appear unworkable, particularly with the possibility of Cracker's edgier (though never mean-spirited) sound colliding with the Spin Doctors' softer groove.

Woody Woodpecker, the late Vivian Vance, Jim Nabors, Arsenio Hall and B.B. King are among 21 entertainers who will receive a star on the Walk of Fame this year, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced. A five-member Walk of Fame Committee culled the list from 200 nominees, according to Johnny Grant, chairman of the committee and honorary mayor of Hollywood. "We received such an abundance of outstanding nominations this year that it was difficult to make a selection," Grant said.
