My perception is that the quality of the crafts and art in general at the Sunday show is not nearly as high as 15 or 20 years ago. Lots of schlocky stuff. Be that as it may, I'm happy it's there and that local craftspeople are able to make a living as a result.
As for it not being "private"--well, that might be technically true, but not realistically. Sales proceeds go into the pockets of the vendors. Sure they pay fees for the privilege of setting up on a public walkway, but they're in business for profit, not creating a public service. All businesses pay business taxes and other fees, they're part of the cost of doing business.
If there are actually funds from their fees earmarked for advertising, they should be used for that, I agree. But nothing beyond that.

Mountain lion seen around Coyote Rd, too. Ironically, if your mind works that way.
Sad about these bears.

Actually, I didn't misread. I see it does say SB County, not the Central Coast.

Unclear whether the signs were removed by County health officials or someone in the public....

Great report, Ray, detailed and clear. For those who know the area, this is by far the best report we've seen from any source. Thank you so much, as usual.

My sentiments exactly, except for the badmouthing of kale, the wonder-veg.

Are genetic tests available to people without health insurance? What about those with high deductibles who have to shell out $3000 for this particular test? Great that testing is available. Not so great that health care is not affordable.
