  • Chico City Council approved a development impact fee with a 4 to 3 vote. The 10-year countywide agreement to help fund the expansion of the Butte County Jail could go into effect once other similar plans are approved by other towns and cities in the county. Paradise has already given it the green light and the county is currently working with Oroville. Gridley and Biggs will soon hear requests from the Sheriff's Office to consider the fee as well. 


    Fees would include a $455 per unit  for new single-family home, an over $360 per unit for multifamily housing and a little over $370 per unit for mobile homes. 


    At that same meeting, the council voted unanimously to consider replacing yield signs with stop signs in the South Campus area. The item is now up for future discussion. This comes after 21-year-old Nick Klein, a Chico State senior, was struck by a car and killed at the intersection of Hazel and 7th Streets in March. Following the collision more than a thousand Chico State students signed an online petition calling for the yield signs in the area to be replaced by stop signs. 


  • So who was the big loser in the weekend fight? If you say Manny Pacquiao, you're wrong, says KPAY's Bruce Lang.
    The big loser was actually TV--or pay TV to be more precise. It took a heavier beating than Pacquiao did in what turned out to be a less than hotly contested bout. TV was expected to win big, with millions shelling out 99 dollars to watch pay per view.
    Instead, the broadcast was marred by technical glithces. Most of these glitches were blamed on a large number of people wanting to see the fight. So there was a rush to watch--but to make matters worse the bout showed up, UNAUTHORIZED, on new services like Twitter's Periscope and Meerkat--where people used the video function on their smartphones to relay the broadcast directly to the Internet. Neither HBO nor Showtime have yet said how many people actually paid to watch Saturday night's fight.
