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.

55 Fiction 2016

29th annual 55 Fiction contest



Hundreds of writers put their stories on the line for New Times' 29th annual 55 Fiction contest. Like the surf that pounds the sand, judges—Proofreader Andrea Rooks, New Times Staff Writer Chris McGuinness, and Sun Staff Writer Brenna Swanston—carefully mulled over each story in the stack, picking only those tales with the smoothest surfaces to deposit on the pages of this year’s issue. Snuggling up alongside those little novels are six works of art, created with the intention of giving image to a 55-word story of each artist’s choosing.
