Weekly Poll
Do you think the Carrizo Plain should stay a national monument?

Absolutely. The Carrizo is one of the last undeveloped areas of the San Joaquin Valley, a protected habitat for endangered species, and a natural wonder for the public.
Yes, but I don't think it's as clear cut as some think. The Trump Administration should take a look at its status.
The feds should consider reducing the size of the monument.
No. The Carrizo should be privatized. Allow the market to tap into its natural resources.

Art v. Craft: Spring Arts Annual



While Art lounges in a fainting couch, twirling its monocle and sucking down a dry martini, Craft bumbles its way through Applebee’s wearing culottes and a fanny pack. Art only watches documentaries and foreign films. Craft is a big Will Ferrell fan. That’s what some people would have you believe, anyway. The truth about the distinction between Art and Craft is a great deal more complicated, definitely less cliché, and entirely subjective anyway. Arts Editor Erin Messer makes her spring arts debut by exploring the relationship between art and craft, with a little help in the form of extensive calendar listings from Calendar Editor Trever Dias, who also makes his spring arts debut.
