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.

Keep it brief: 28th annual 55 Fiction



This year we kept it simple, just like submitters kept it brief, and New Times staff members from different departments wrangled through the stacks of words that made up the last year’s worth of 55 Fiction entries. They corralled the chosen ones into a short pile meant for print in our 28th annual 55 Fiction issue. The judges were Proofreader Andrea Rooks, Owner Cindy Rucker, and Executive Assistant Giselle Griffin from New Times, and Sun Arts Editor Joe Payne, with our sister paper to the south. And if you disagree with the stories we picked, don’t blame us—blame the staff members who’ve parted ways with us since last year.
