Lots to like on theorion.com over the weekend. It's nice to see the newsroom back on its game.
• A casual conversation Friday morning turned into a nice piece of wild art about Choose Chico weekend from Ben Mullin followed by a solid story and photo about the event Sunday by Allison Weeks.
• Pedro Quintana cut a professional figure (nice tie, Pedro!) in his stint in the webcast anchor desk and has made great strides in slowing down his delivery and punching key points in his script.
• Annie Maize delivered a polished performance on Monday's webcast, rounding up the weekend's sports action and contributing a couple of terrific game-action photos.
• Jessica Barber tweeted highlights from the Dr. Drew Pinsky appearance Thursday that genuinely made me want to read her story about the psychiatrist and addition specialist's visit. The story was posted late Friday, and it didn't disappoint.
• Emily Duran, Price Peterson and Brett Appley saturated Twitter with game highlights throughout the weekend and followed up by posting timely game stories. Brandon Eiges pitched in with nice summaries from a track and field meet in Stockton.
