Weekly Poll
Do you agree with Rep. Salud Carbajal's decision to attend Trump's inauguration?

Yes. He should definitely go and show respect for the new president.
I agree that he should attend to show Trump that Latinos have a strong voice in our government.
No. He should stand in solidarity with Rep. John Lewis and other congressional members who aren't attending.
I don't care what he does on inauguration day, as long as he does a good job as a congressman.

55 Fiction 2012



Each year, hundreds of writers from around the Central Coast, state, country, and beyond roll up their sleeves and start writing. They click on keyboards. They scratch pens on paper. They hammer away at typewriters.

Then, they submit their tiny literary endeavors to the annual 55 Fiction contest, started years ago by New Times’ founder, Steve Moss. A group of staff judges wades through the entries, scoring each one. At the end of the weeks-long marathon reading session, the stories with the most points are declared fit to print.

Peruse these brief slices of wit, wisdom, murder, mayhem, folly, fun, foolishness, and more. You’ll be enthralled, appalled, tickled, amused, and inspired, but in all cases entertained.

Ryan Miller is executive editor of New Times and the Santa Maria Sun.
