Importing Parent Style into Child theme

Hello,

I would like to edit the Style.css file in the Magazine child theme. (I am new to css and themeing). The wordpress codex suggests that if you would like to make minor changes to style and layout, that I should import the parent styles. Is this necessary for the magazine style.css child theme? I ask because there is some text in the style.css file that seems to indicate that the magazine default style is already imported. Is this true? If not, can you tell me how you suggest importing the parent style.

(They have suggestions, as well. Please see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes. Should I do this?)

Thank you.
