"On Aug. 30, 1977, when the staff of the Chico News & Review published their first issue, they didn't have much time to reflect on the impossibility of the endeavor," the News & Review staff writes. "Had they stopped to think about it and been reasonable people, they might have given up on the spot. The odds were against them." As part of the paper's special anniversary package, the News & Review also reveals the true identity of film reviewer "Juan-Carlos Selznick," who has been writing for 29 of the paper's 30 years -- he's actually local English professor Pete Hogue.
