Mix Pet Of The Week

We're back with another edition of Mix Pet of the Week, showcasing a couple more furry friends from the Butte Humane Society who are looking for their foreve homes.  This week, you'll meet Emmy and Nala!



Meow! My name is Emmy. I am a very sweet 3 year medium sized old brown and orange tabby. I am not very outgoing yet but I do love to be pet and held at times. I would make a great family pet for someone who will give me a little time to settle into a new place and allow me to explore at my own pace. I came to BHS with many of my friends: Did you know all cats are two for the price of one? I might be able to go home with another kitty, but I don't know how I am with dogs yet. If I seem like the gal for you, come down to the Cat Adoptions Center today!



Hi I'm Nala! I'm a seven year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix that came to the shelter as a surrender. I really love people and am an easy going dog that would be good for a first time dog owner. I have lived with children as young as six years old and have always had positive and polite experiences with them! I would be a great dog for a family and I am not sure if I can have doggie friends, but am willing to try! I do not do well with cats, but I am a mellow dog who would be good living in a house or an apartment. If you think you'd like to adopt me please call the Dog Adoptions Center at 530-343-7917 x 201


You can visit Emma and Nala at the Butte Humane Society.  The Cat Adoption Center is at 587 Country Drive and the Dog Adoption Center is at 2579 Fair Street. Both facilities are open seven days a week from noon until 6pm.  For more details you can also visit their website at ButteHumane.Org

Must Have App For The Next Storm

Right Now there's a lull in the weather, but we're expecting another round of storms starting Tuesday through possibly Thursday. That means wet, slick roads in the valley, accidents and traffic delays. If you're in the foothills or mountains, ice and snow will no doubt impact your travels.  The best way to keep up with the most up to date road information and conditions is the Caltrans App called QuickMap.



With the QuickMap app you will have access to real time traffic information including traffic congestion and CHP incidents, road closures, chain control information, changeable message signs, and the most current traffic speeds on freeways and most state maintained roadways. You can also see where Caltrans drivers are operating plows and where Caltrans maintained rest areas are along your travel route.  Before, you had to visit two or three websites and call a couple different numbers to get all this information. Now you can get all this valuable time and (depending on conditions) potentially lifesaving information all in one convenient place. Your smartphone with the QuickMap app.



To get Quick Map on your smartphone or tablet, simply  use your phone to log on to the Apple App Store  or Google Play  download and install on your phone today before the next storm hits.  If you are using your desktop or laptop you can also access QuickMap here.

Amanda Ree, Executive Director of the American Red Cross proclaimed, “Colusa Casino is always a steadfast supporter of our local communities. This support for our wildfire fund came at a critical time between two large local disasters, the Carr Fire and the Camp Fire. And, it has done much to bring our mission to the communities impacted by these devastating fires - allowing us to provide safe beds and warm food as well as provide the direct financial assistance that can help families with immediate needs.”
“The concert at Colusa Casino offered a measure of comfort and renewal for those facing a difficult time,” said Brian Rice, Chair of the California Fire Foundation. “The money from this event will help rebuild homes and lives shattered by catastrophic wildfires.”

Locally Headquartered Agricultural Equipment Company Partners with Colusa Casino to Donate to Victims of the Camp Fire 

Yuba City, CA - Valley Truck and Tractor Company (VTTCO) has joined with the Colusa Casino to donate $12,145.00 the Sierra Central Credit Union/TLK Foundation/ Camp Fire Relief Fund.  The fund has been established to provide aid to the victims of the Camp Fire and 100% of the donations received will go to the victims. 
VTTCO holds an annual Christmas Party for its employees and this year’s party was to be held at Colusa Casino Resort.  The party is held every year for its employees and their families as a thank you for their hard work, dedication and support throughout the year. 
VTTCO management was considering cancelling this year’s party and instead commit the funds to the Camp Fire victims.  Discussions were held with Colusa Casino Resort management regarding cancelling the event and it was then that Colusa Casino stepped up and offered to participate in the donation and still provide the opportunity for VTTCO to hold the party for its employees.
“Over the years, Colusa Casino Resort has been honored to have the good people of Valley Truck and Tractor as our guests. In these times of thanks and sharing, it's wonderful now to join Valley Truck and Tractor as partners in generosity and caring for our community with over $12,000 being directed towards where the folks in our area need it most.” Beau Gonzales, Assistant General Manager, Colusa Casino Resort.

The SCCU/TLKFoundation/Camp Fire Relief Fund is continuing to receive donations and can be found on the web at:

Mix Pet of the Week

We're back with another edition of Mix Pet of the Week, showcasing a couple more furry friends from the Butte Humane Society who are looking for their foreve homes.  This week, you'll meet Marsh and Heidi!


Hello!  My Name is Marsh!



Three Years Old

Nuetered Male

Shepherd Mix


Woof! My name is Marsh and I am a 3 year old male shepherd mix here at the Butte Humane Society. I am very smart and willing to learn, but being around all of the strange dogs here gives me anxiety. I need to have a stable home environment so that I can relax and come out of my shell because I am truly a happy, playful boy! I know how to sit, stay, and lay down, but I need someone in my life to help me focus because I can get distracted fairly easily. I love playing with toys and I may be okay with another dog, but we would have to meet first to make sure that we get along!


And I'm Heidi! Pleased to meet you!



Fifteen Years Old

Spayed Female

Black and White Domestic Shorthair


Hi my name is Heidi, I am a super sweet black and white senior kitty. I came to the shelter this summer with my very best friend Fifi, and I am hoping to find a new forever home with her. We are both spayed females and Fifi is a senior as well. We are hoping to find a mellow, relaxing home with someone who will pamper us for the rest of our lives.


Both Marsh and Heidi would make wonderful additions to any family.  You can visit Marsh at the Butte Humane Society Dog Adoption Center located at 2579 Fair Street in Chico.  Heidi currently resides at the Butte Humane Society Cat Adoption Center located at 587 Country Dr. in Chico.  Both facilities are open 7 days a week from 12 noon to 6 pm each day.  Marsh and Heidi look forward to seeing you soon!


2018 Walk To End Alzheimers

Hello there!  Pleased to meet you. My name is Maurice!


1 Year Old


Terrier-American Pit Bull/Mix

Howdy! I'm Crookshank. At Your Service!


10 Years


Domestic Shorthair/Mix




Hi! I'm Crookshank, a beautiful ten year old lady. I kind of have that tuxedo thing going on with my white chest, paws and stripey coat. As a senior cat, I'd love nothing better than a sunny window and a warm lap to sit on. My previous owner said that I do well with other cats and I would prefer to be an indoor only cat if possible. If you think I'd be the purrfect addition to your home, come down to the Cat Adoptions Center to meet me today!


Mix Pet Of The Week

Hello Again!  It's time for another Mix Pet Of The Week at a look at some of the latest at Butte Humane Society who are looking for that special family to take them home!



Hi!  My name is Elsie!


5 years


Domestic Medium Hair/Mix


I am a gorgeous 5 year old lady. I am a very sweet, loving, and mellow cat looking for my fur-ever family. I'm a rare cat because I actually like my tummy rubbed! Looking for a laid-back but adorable cat to spend your time with? Then I might be the girl for you! I lived in a household with another cat so I think I could get along with other cats as long as they respect my space. Please come and meet me at the Cat Adoptions Center today!




We'll hello there! I'm Violet! Happy to meet you!



3 years


Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix



I'm as sweet as a peach and as lovely as a flower! At times I'm energetic and

playful, but generally I am a mellow lady. I'm very loving and give lots of kisses. I know some basic commands, but I hope my new owner will train me to do more! I can probably go to a home with another dog, I'm just a little unsure of dogs at this point, so I'll need another dog who is kind and patient with me. Older children would be okay with me too! If you're looking to add a little light to your life, please come down and meet me at the dog adoptions center  at 2579 Fair St.

New Additions to Webster's Dictionary


It's that time of year again when we find out about the new words that the folks at Merriam-Webster's deem worthy of adding to the world's most used dictionary.


                                                                                     PHOTO: By Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.

                                                                                    [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons



This year, the folks at Webster's have added 850 new words and definitions to the national lexicon.  Some of the highlights of this year's additions.......


DUMPSTER FIRE:  This one has been used quite often since 2008, mainly as a colorful description of poorly performing athletes and/or sports teams.  Webster's newly added and official definition:  "an utterly calamitous or mismanaged situation or occurrence"


WORDIE:  "A lover of words."   Now foodie has a baby brother in the big book!


MANSPLAIN:  "To explain something to a woman in a condescending manner that assumes she has no knowledge of the topic."   Guys. we'll just say be VERY careful how you use this one and leave it at that.


And finally.......


GLAMPING:  "The act of outdoor camping with amenities and comforts."     And it goes without saying, if you have ever gone camping with an RV, that indeed makes you a "glamper"  and probably a pretty good candidate for the lead role in the next National Lampoon Family Vacation remake.



If you want to know more about the other 846 news word that have been added to the dictionary, click and check out the WORDS AT PLAY COLUMN at Webster's website.

Road Info and Chain Controls

The current storm system making it's way through Northern California has made driving conditions dangerous at best. Chain controls are currently up for most, if not all, mountain roadways including 5, 32, 36, 49, 70, 299, and the upper Skyway.  Here's a quick look at where the plows are out and chain controls are in effect via the Quickmaps app from CalTrans.



The Quickmaps app from CalTrans is available through your app store and online at   On this app you have options to see where the chain controls and snow plows are according to the latest CalTrans information. You also can get travel related information  including CHP incidents, hard road closures, and C/T road cameras and message boards. 


There are also some school closures and  power outages  related to the current storm.


Berry Creek Elementary is closed today due to a power outage and will be closed on Friday for a snow day.


There are also a few weather related power outages as well.  


Approx 800 PG&E customers near Lake Oroville are without power this morning. That outage stretches from Forbestown Road in southern Butte County to the Berry Creek  area.


According to PG& E there are several smaller isolated outages scattered around the Chico urban area as well as Corning, Orland, and Gridley.


978 customers are also without power in the Yuba City area.  PG&E says both outages are weather related.

Here To Help: New Options For Urban Gardeners

Does your weekly grocery bill seem to to just keep growing and growing?  Well, If you live in a crowded urban area, now you have an opportunity to grow something other than that grocery bill.  Thanks to Ikea's innovative idea lab called Space10 and designers Sine Lindholm and Mads-Ulrik Husumtoin, you can now grow many of the fresh fruits and veggies than can drive those grocery bills through the roof.



There creation is called  "The Growroom" and it allows people in the confined space of many urban areas to grow foods that previous could only be grown in rural areas. 




Now, Ikea and Space10 are making the blueprints for assembly of the structure available online for free allowing those with limited space to grow fresh fruits and vegetables for themselves and their friends.
