Weekly Poll
What do you look for when you’re picking out a wine?

Hints of tobacco, notes of ripe cherry and dried currant, and a great mouth feel.

A great label with an artistic touch and keen descriptors always gets me.
I don’t care, just hand over the box.

Arnold started her tenure by criticizing the appointment of District 2 Supervisor Bruce Gibson to vice-chair—to the applause of the room brimming with Arnold family members and supporters—claiming that the rotation dictates that the position go to District 1 Supervisor Frank Mecham.
