HELPING THE HUNGRY North County food banks see increase in demand for food assistance

By MARK DIAZ mark@atascaderonews.com NORTH COUNTY — Both the Atascadero and Paso Robles Loaves and Fishes food banks have seen an increase in the demand for food assistance in the North County and will continue operations during the coronavirus outbreak. “We serve a lot of the working poor, and we serve a lot of elderly people,” PLF Executive Director Maria Madrid Sabi said. Although the organizations share the Loaves and Fishes name, the Atascadero and Paso Robles food assistance programs are separate entities with

different hours of operation. Each nonprofit has seen an uptick in people participating in their programs and have made changes to how they are operating to help accommodate the most people possible. Both have waived in-depth, face-to-face interviews generally performed to determine the level of need of the applicant. To deter the spread of the virus, both organizations also asked people not to drop off donations, but instead donate money online to help with the purchasing of food. “We are, right now, figuring out a way that we can serve people that are 65-years and older and are not able to come here,” Sabi said. “That was already part of our vision that we were going to

roll out this year, but now we’re doing it a little bit sooner. It’s a different circumstance, but it is really the same thing we had in mind to do this year.” Both nonprofits are distributing pre-packaged food parcels with as many of the standard items as they can provide based on supply lines. “Clients are allowed to select food items and hygiene items off a menu, so that we don’t waste anything and they don’t get anything that they don’t want,” Pantry Manager Terry Vail said. “But we have had to modify that because of the social distancing recommendations.” CONTINUED ON PAGE A16

LIFTING SPIRITS

ATASCADERO — In this time of community challenges, so much of the community joy relies on making plans for when the coronavirus has been overcome and life can resume. The Atascadero Kiwanis and Rotary Club put their community spirit together to ensure that Joy Playground was ready for the kids when it safe to resume person-to-person contact and interaction. The groups put together more than 500 feet of fencing around Joy Playground, which is necessary for the all-inclusive play area as it serves children with special needs. Children with autism are prone to eloping, and wandering off unnoticed, so the fence around Joy Playground allows children to play independently, giving parents the security they need to relax and allow their children to play with lighter attention than is normally possible on most playgrounds. “Parents For Joy would like to thank the volunteers from Kiwanis and Rotary of Atascadero for coming out, in the rain, and putting up the fencing,” Parents for Joy member Sarah Sullivan said. “It looks fantastic! This project wouldn’t be what it is today without the help from service clubs and the community — thank you! We aren’t finished yet. More shade and the splash pad coming soon!” Battling the recent rain and social distancing recommendations, the community worked to ensure that when the time came to resume public activity without fears of COVID-19, they can enjoy the only all-inclusive playground in the county.

Master Distiller Aaron Bergh Local Blood Bank Struggling to Find Donors Vitalant asks healthy citizens for help Pivots From Distilling Gin To Manufacturing Hand Sanitizer By NICHOLAS MATTSON nic@atascaderonews.com

Local distiller meets needs of first responders and other agencies in desperate need by converting the Calwise Spirits distillery to sanitizer production. Proprietor and master distiller Aaron Bergh made the pivot after seeing calls from agencies serving the community’s most vulnerable, and invites additional agencies in need to contact him. “It concerns me that our community servants don’t have sufficient sanitizer at a time when they need it more than ever,” said Bergh, who is known for producing craft gins and rums at his distillery in south Paso Robles. “I realized that my equipment and supply chain expertise could help out these everyday heroes as they work tirelessly to keep us safe.” In a short amount of time, Bergh has started supplying bulk hand sanitizer to the Templeton Fire Department, San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority, the Camarillo Police Department, 40 Prado Road Homeless Services Center, SLO Food Bank, and others. Most sobering was a call he received from atascaderonews.com

The declaration frees up money from disaster relief funds that have been set aside in case of an emergency. The action also helps the City to get reimbursed from the state and federal governments from funds used during an emergency. It also reduces constraints for purchasing and leasing items.” “Under the municipal code, we are required to get written competitive bids for certain types of purchasing,” Frutchey said. “We don’t have the time in certain situations in an emergency to go through that written bid process. Certainly, we will continue to work to ensure that everything we purchase is on the most cost-effective purchase possible.”

By MARK DIAZ

During a time of uncertainty, communication are key to providing services in a timely matter. Declaring an emergency ensures that all emergency medical services (EMS) and City staff are operating from the same playbook. This is accomplished by converting all operations under the Incident Command System (ISC), which is lead by the city manager, who assumes the role of Director of Emergency Services. All EMS, such as firefighters, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), must undergo ICS training that establishes protocol on how to deal with specific emergencies. “The emergency declaration has many benefits,” Frutchey said. “First, it converts our operations to the Incident Command System, ICS, which is necessary for us to work seamlessly with other jurisdictions. Second, it authorizes our emergency operations center to activate at the required levels.” The Disaster Council was established to oversee and coordinate disaster preparedness measures in the City. The council is comprised of the mayor, who acts as chair, the city manager, assistant city manager, and the chiefs of the Emergency Services Department. According to Paso Robles bylaws established in 2019, the Disaster Council is empowered to develop and recommend actions for adoption by the City Council, including Emergency and Mutual Aid Plans and Agreements for the City.

WORSHIP

Local Churches Offer Online Services and Resources

By MARK DIAZ

NORTH COUNTY — In a day and age when people complain that “screen time” is keeping people apart, those same devices are being used to keep people connected to their local communities of faith. A week after San Luis Obispo County issued the shelter-at-home order to curb the spread of COVID-19, local churches all over North County are using the digital world to unite fellow believers. Paso Robles Community Church Lead Pastor Shawn Penn said that he instituted a CAREchain that assigns members responsibility to check on their fellow churchgoers two to three times per week. “We just made that available a couple of weeks ago, and it caught on,” Penn said. Penn said that if a member comes across a need in their outreach, they are instructed to inform the church who will work to provide assistance. “They call the church, we collect that and then we have another team that’s just our response team now, that are younger people that will go do the shopping and take it to their house and leave it there for them,” Penn said. Almost all local churches are providing online streaming or access to recorded sermons online. The Atascadero Refuge Church has been offering online viewing of Pastor Steve Shively’s sermons for years, and the Life Community Church offers online streaming of its sermons every Sunday morning. LLC also provides free Sunday school

videos and ways for teenagers to stay connected as well for those who sign up. The Atascadero Bible church is instituting several venues to keep people connected. “What we’re doing is working towards an interactive community-centered service in terms of our worship services for live streaming our regularly scheduled services at 8, 9:15 and 11 a.m.,” ABC Executive Pastor Jeff Urke said. “We’re using a platform called online.church that we’re hoping to get people to engage during the service with some online chat windows and things.” ABC also created a COVID-19 page for people to request assistance through the church and are implementing a program where church members reach out to their neighbors through “Love Your Neighbor” postcards to ask them how they can be of assistance. The church is offering Zoom video conferencing session where up to 100 people can join in on a chat. Urke said that the church is also working on a daily online chat to help people keep in contact and share personal or communal needs. “What we’re trying to do,” said Urke, “is to keep a sense of togetherness in the community, because everyone is in their homes and they can’t really congregate, so we’re trying to provide online ways to interact with others. And rather than watching online content, we really want people interacting online so you can feel a real sense of community through that online presence.”

SAN MIGUEL REFLECTIONS

MOVIE REVIEW

San Miguel ‘EMMA’ PROVIDES A MUCH-NEEDED ESCAPE Quieter Than Usual

Chris Allen

E

COLUMNIST

veryone needs to branch out now and then, so in a moment of weakness I agreed to see the movie ‘Emma’ with my wife just before the theater was closed due to the shelter-at-home orders. “Let’s see something light and fun,” she chided me, and I had to agree some levity was in order after being pummeled with news of the pandemic. So the two of us and one other couple (the only ones in the theater — properly distanced of course) settled in for Jane Austen’s “comedy of manners,” as a little escape from the madness. If you are looking for light, things can’t get much lighter than a story whose main character self-admittedly lives in a “world with very little to distress or vex her.” Emma is a spoiled and headstrong young woman growing up in a wealthy English household during the early 1800s, and everything about her life is soft and slow and comfortable. From the first moment we lay eyes on Emma nearly everything is portrayed in pastel colors — flowers, dresses, houses, interior wall colors and paintings. Hers is a life that is delicate and sheltered, which leaves all sorts of time to meddle in the lives of others without really considering the effects of her manipulations.

Enter young Mr. Knightly. From the first moment we see him he is moving with purpose, even choosing to walk to his appointments rather than taking the luxurious carriage provided. The colors surrounding him are deeper and richer and the walls of his home are covered in dark paintings of important looking people in serious poses. It becomes quickly obvious these two are on a collision course and how that plays out is indeed a great deal of fun. As you can tell from my descriptions, just the sets and costumes themselves are almost worth the price of admission. There are dresses and hats and ballrooms and gardens that are all so visually captivating, but it is Anya Taylor-Joy, playing the title character, that really draws you into the plot. Her big, dark eyes and pouty face will have you shaking your head at her petulant audacity, but also smiling in satisfaction as she learns from her mistakes, and it is her mistakes that drive the action of the movie. Emma, we find, after setting up her governess with a successful suitor, decides she is a skill-

ful matchmaker, who will set up her friend Harriet with a proper husband as well. However, matters of social status, mis-perceptions of the effects of her actions, mixed with a bit of arrogant superiority lead Emma to make a mess of her life and many of the lives around her. I won’t lie, I got lost at times keeping track of who was in love with whom, and how certain characters were related to others. There was a lot of dialog delivered in English accents using antiquated vocabulary and most of the action took place in sitting rooms and dinner parties. That said, I still liked it. My wife loved it. And as I watched Mr. Knightly and Emma verbally spar about matters of the heart, I had to admit it was nice to see a movie bathed in beauty and intellectual banter, set in a world where love is the most important thing and all who seek it will eventually find it. Because of course, everything works out in the end, each character ends up with the mate they deserve, and all returns to normalcy. If only our own world could follow suit.

Every one of our stories now all human life is special — but I didn’t has a coronavirus chapter. Some of our know that my life was special. I thought chapters will be more dramatic than I had to do something, or be something, others. In California today, a Saturday, or prove something, or obtain some-

I

thing, or win something, or earn some recognition in order to feel special. I was wrong. I’m probably right to say nobody wants COVID-19. Nobody wants to get the novel coronavirus. But do we want to live the rest of our lives the way we have been living them before? Most people will probably emphatically say “yes” to that question. Life was awesome. Most of the people I know feel that way. People might disagree with each other on a lot of things — or we might have moments where we feel alone, inadequate, lost, heartbroken, poor, unwanted, weak, rejected, or so wrong that we feel infectious ourselves and don’t want to give anyone else what we have so we just stay away — but we are alive. We may not truly understand the meaning of life, but there is comfort knowing that something wanted it that way — and while we are alive and with our health, we ought to honor what it is that wants us alive and trust it while it sees fit we stay alive. I hope you know now why I said I’m not really concerned for many others either. It is because I believe the same thing that gave me life, has kept me alive, and has given me an opportunity to do something with this life that I don’t need to understand completely in order to enjoy, has done the same for them. We’re not supposed to know how it all works out. In fact, not knowing is part of the adventure — although it drives my wife bonkers. I believe that same thing that gave me life has given you an opportunity too. It’s given everyone an opportunity — they all just

come in different flavors. We don’t know how this coronavirus thing is going to end up. We don’t know quite what next week will look like, or what next month will look like — but on January 1, 2020, we didn’t know what March 21, 2020 was going to look like (to every season, a turn). All I know for sure, is that you didn’t think it would look like this. We all had other plans. But the thing that is keeping me alive, that gave me life, and now leads my life… it always has the right plan. It is my guide. My faith in it can only be true if I extend that faith to others. Everyone has had the same opportunity to reconcile with life, because life itself is what we’ve all been experiencing this whole time. There are no short lives or long lives. There is only life. So why am I hunkered down, staying six feet away from everyone outside my family if I have such faith? It’s because that is what my guide is telling me to do right now. I’m not supposed to get anyone else sick. I’m supposed to care about other people, even if I’m not concerned for them. They’ll be fine, I’m told. Everyone is OK, I’m told. We’re supposed to see this. We’re supposed to go through this. My 5-year-old had valley fever… he was supposed to go through that. I had kawasaki disease as a young child. I was supposed to have it. What I’m also told, is that there is a difference between what happens to us as a global community and what we do to each other. When one person hurts someone else, that is not supposed to happen. That is considered a misfire. When coronavirus happens, it was meant to happen, and we can prevent

its spread. We are supposed to. This isn’t metaphysical, or spiritual. It is just what it is. If anyone understood it well enough to explain it, we’d have some new books. Instead of getting new books, we just get more books. We’re still waiting for new ones. We have an opportunity right now to learn something very profound about life on Earth — something we can’t learn in school. We have an opportunity to learn about each other and ourselves. Life will probably change dramatically, and it may get worse before it gets better, but this coronavirus has humbled the world. Humility — the knowledge of one’s self. We know a little bit more about ourselves after this. Life should change dramatically, or we haven’t learned anything at all. Well, currently life is dramatically changed and we all hope it is only temporary. We look forward to looking back on this. We look forward to cracking COVID-19 jokes and them actually being funny. We look forward to shaking hands again, and giving strangers hugs. We look forward to waiting in long lines and standing in big crowds. We look forward to the music. We have big plans. We began 2020 with “2020 vision” of hope for greater prosperity than ever before. As a community and as a nation, I hope people haven’t changed those plans, because we are going to get through this, and we are going to be greater than ever, as a community and as individuals. Here’s to working together to make sure we are not still social distancing by July 4, 2020 — we might have an entirely new perspective on independence and freedom by then.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES SHOULD CLOSE Editor, I recently moved to Atascadero. I am in a group that is more vulnerable to COVID-19 and as such I have been spending almost all of my time in my home, my only escape being a walk when the weather is nice. I am dismayed and disappointed at the number of non-essential businesses that remain open in town. I understand that many of these businesses are locally owned and that their owners may be trying to help their employees and to keep their businesses afloat in these tough times. They are jeopardizing the health of all of us to benefit a few. Personally, I will do the following. First, I will patronize the locally owned restaurants that are offering take-out and delivery services. Second, I will patronize the local businesses that have closed once they reopen. Third, I will not patronize those non-essential businesses that choose to remain open. For me these are the right actions to take. I hope everyone stays safe. If we work together we will get through this Carol Carroll, Atascadero

ite recipe or two and I will include them in this column. I love old recipes that have come down from generation to generation. If you have any like that be sure to indicate where they came from. The following recipe was shared with me by Diane Schneider in Paso Robles. She served this soup at one of our “game night” gatherings at their home. The recipe was given to her by a neighbor when she and Michael lived in Lincoln. The origin of the recipe was a PEO (Philanthropic, Educational Organization) cookbook. The soup is delicious and freezes well. ITALIAN SAUSAGE PASTA SOUP Ingredients: • 2 lb. Mild Italian sausage, bulk or casings • 6 carrots, peeled and chopped • 1 onion, chopped • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped 4 quarts chicken broth • 2 (14-oz.) cans tomatoes, diced

• 2 (15-oz.) cans white beans, rinsed and drained • 1 tbs. dried basil • ¼ tsp. Herb de Provence • 2 cups large shell pasta, cooked (following package directions) and dried. • 4 (4-oz.) quarts spinach leaves

Directions: Squeeze sausage from casings. Place in large pot and brown over high heat (crumble as you would hamburger). Drain all fat except 1 teaspoon. Keep that in the pot. Add carrots, onion, and garlic. Stir 5-7 minutes until vegetables are limp. Add broth, undrained tomatoes, beans (already rinsed and drained) basil and Herbs de Provence. You can do this much a day ahead. Just heat, do not boil. Next day (if doing in two steps), bring to a boil, add pasta, simmer approximately 10 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook approximately 30 seconds. If you would like to share a recipe please send it to barbiewb@hotmail.com Cheers!

IT’S THE PITTS

Deranged About Dogs

I’m a little jealous. I’ve never had a cow even make a pass at me. Your average dog owner will spend anywhere from $6,400 to $16,400 to raise a dog to the age of 11. I’m quite sure that’s more than was spent on me. Now I really am jealous. What prompts this essay Lee Pitts was an episode you aren’t COLUMNIST going to believe but I swear I’m not making it up. I was may be in the dog house trying to write but it was hard for asking this but since because some mutt was yap when did dogs become yap yapping. I looked out the people? Humans are sleepwindow and was shocked to ing with their dogs, leaving see a person laying in the road their estates to them, going that passes in front of our on spa vacations together, house. I live at the end of a taking them grocery shopping, dead-end street that comes to being buried with them and an abrupt stop at the edge of a are feeding them food that huge state park. On a typicosts more per entree than cal day a half dozen vehicles the meals I eat. According to might pass my house but I Wikipedia, 60 percent of dog rushed outside thinking this owners across the country person had been run over and celebrate their canine’s birthher little dog was trying to get day by throwing a birthday someone’s attention. The dog party for it. Maybe I’m just was no bigger than a football jealous? But marrying your but had less brains. And the dog as some people have done pooch was trimmed up like seems a bit extreme to me. I some topiary shrub in a hedge even found an instance where fund millionaire’s yard. an 18-year-old Balinese man “Are you all right?” I asked married a cow who he claimed the prostrate woman. “How was flirting with him. Okay, so long have you been laying...”

I

I didn’t get a chance to finish my sentence because the lady looked at me harshly and said, “Be quiet! Can’t you see the coyote?” “But what happened? Did you get run over? Are you injured?” “Of course not,” she whispered. “But why are you laying in the middle of the street?” “I’m trying to get that coyote to come closer so that it might see that, unlike you, I pose no threat. I was hoping to socialize that coyote to people so that at some point we might establish some sort of bond. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could get that coyote and my dog to become playmates?” she said as she gave her pooch slobbery kisses. “Lady, I have just one question: ARE YOU NUTS? The park is crawling with lions, bobcats and coyotes that will eat that dog of yours in one gulp.” “That’s just not true. I’ve seen and read in books where coyotes and even wolves have realized their common ancestry with dogs and have celebrated their diversity together.”

“Well, I wish you’d let them celebrate their diversity someplace else because I don’t want to have to clean up the mess or listen to your dog scream after it celebrates with that coyote.” As the lady got up in a huff from her previously prone position the coyote turned and ran away. “Now look what you’ve done,” she sobbed. “You scared the poor thing away and blew my best chance yet to get up close and personal with a coyote.” “You mean you’ve done this before?” I asked in disbelief. “Oh sure. By pretending to play dead I once got a squirrel to eat out of my hand and a blue jay landed on my shoulder. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someday my dog and I could come to call the lions, bobcats and coyotes in the park our friend.” “Lady, you keep laying on the ground around here and there will be no “playing or pretending” about being dead. Instead of calling your dog, its friend the lions, bobcats and coyotes will call your dog something else entirely.” “What’s that?” she asked. “The appetizer.”

MEDITATIONS

The Magnitude of God’s Provision for Man’s Salvation

“it went viral.” “And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.” I don’t write poetry, so instead I’ve been cooking and baking and enjoying my time in my kitchen. For the next few weeks I thought it might be fun to share recipes with those of you who are also in this stay-at-home condition. You can e-mail me a favor-

he biblical doctrine of salvation as I have discussed in past meditations deals with God’s loving provision for delivering sinners from the penalty of sin’s condemnation. Jesus clearly taught in John 3:1618 that He was sent into the world because His Father loved sinners and desired to deliver them from perishing. God’s motives for sending His Son were not to “judge the world, but that the

world might be saved through Him” ( John 3:17). A sinner is saved from condemnation by believing that Jesus died for his sins, was buried, and rose physically from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, John 3:16,18). Jesus clearly said that an unbeliever was ALREADY CONDEMNED. The only solution to not being condemned was personal belief in Jesus. Most people in the world are not aware of their spiritual condition as an unbeliever. This was certainly true of me before I believed the true gospel of grace (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesians 2:8-9). I thought that I was inherently good and did more good than evil and could earn my own way into heaven. I learned from the Bible that my sins could not be atoned for by good woks (Acts 15:11, 16:3031, Galatians 1:3-9, Titus 2:11, 3:4-7). My sins were atoned

for by the death of Christ on the cross (Romans 3:23-25, 5:8-10, 10:8-9, 1 Timothy 2:3-6, 1 Peter 1:18-19, 3:18). The apostle Paul in Galatians 2:21 declared that if a person could save himself by righteous works, then “Christ died in vain.” If a sinner could save himself by human merit, then Christ would not have been sent into the world to die for him. Only Christ as a substitutionary sacrifice as the “Lamb of God” could pay the penalty of sin through His DEATH ( John 1:29, 36). The writer of the epistle of Hebrews states that God’s salvation is a “great salvation.” God’s salvation is of great magnitude. This is true because of the everlasting benefits and blessings it provides as listed below: • Everlasting life in heaven ( John 3:16, 14:1-6). • Everlasting redemption from

sin’s penalty (Hebrews 9:12). • Everlasting co-inheritance with Christ as His bride (Romans 8:17, Hebrews 9:15, 2 Corinthians 11:2). • Everlasting forgiveness of sin (Matthew 26:27-28, Acts 13:36-38, Ephesians 1:7, 4:31-32, 1 John 2:12) • Everlasting existence in heaven with Christ and other believers ( John 14:1-6, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). • Live forever in an immortal and everlasting body (1 Corinthian 15:42-58, Philippians 3:20-21, 1 John 3:1-3). There are many more benefits that could also be listed. These benefits are ONLY FOR BELIEVERS in Jesus Christ. Your personal FAITH in Christ will make you a possessor of these benefits. Don’t Be like the people in Hebrews 2:3 that rejected God’s great salvation through neglect that will result in not escaping God’s judgment.

Twin Cities Sets Up Screening Tent By MARK DIAZ

Hospital takes steps to prevent coronavirus spread

TEMPLETON — In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Tenet Health Central Coast established “screening tents” and Twin Cities Community Hospital. Individuals planning on going to the Emergency Room will be assessed before entering the facility. Twin Cities Community Hospital is monitoring information from federal, state and local public health agencies for current information on the coronavirus, according to a written statement by THCC officials. Hospital officials

affirmed that Twin Cities staff has taken the appropriate steps to guard against the spread of the virus. “As with any communicable disease,” THCC officials wrote, “as our patients enter the hospital in areas such as emergency department or registration, hospital staff are questioning all of their recent travel and detailing symptoms. We evaluate relevant symptom criteria and implement contact airborne isolation, if required, without delay. Our clinical teams are in constant review of infection prevention processes and update patient screen- A tent has been set up as a coronavirus screening area for those entering Twin ings as recommended by the CDC.” Cities Community Hospital in Templeton.

French Hospital Accepting Donations of Personal Protective Equipment BY MARK DIAZ SAN LUIS OBISPO — In response to an outpouring of generosity from the community, on Friday, Mar. 20, French Hospital Medical Center Foundation provided direction for those who wanted to provide medical donations to the nonprofit medical center in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are not on short supply,” FHMC Senior Director Marketing and Communications Megan Maloney said, “but we

had a lot of people calling because we are a not-for-profit organization asking how they can help. So, we asked our materials management what are the most important things that we need?” The hospital, operating under the umbrella of Dignity Health, is requesting donations of N95 masks and personal protective equipment. FCMC is also seeking bandanas, clear goggles and, most importantly, PAPR hoods model # 1-133L-5

and #S-133S-5 (PAPR is Powered air-purifying respirator), N95 masks, Clorox or sani-cloth wipes, isolation gowns, nitrile gloves, shoe covers and bouffant caps. Official said that although the hospital currently has sufficient supplies for the days and weeks to come, they wanted to provide information on how people can help. Maloney also said that all donations will find a home even if FHMC does not use

the materials gathered. “Although we have ample supply, we want to be prepared for if and when we need it,” Maloney said. “And if we end up not needing it, we will be happy to donate it to shelters or other organizations who also might need it in the future.” For more information or to donate materials, contact Danica at the French Hospital Medical Center Foundation at (805) 542-6496.

You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. All checks payable to Prestige Default Services.

tascadero senior Wyatt Hasch is the Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press Boys Soccer Player of the Year for his versatility with the Hounds, playing excellent defense while also providing an offensive spark when needed. Hasch came highly recommended by multiple coaches in the North County and helped lead the Greyhounds to a 10-12-2 overall record but more importantly, a 8-4 record in the Ocean League and the Hounds’ second consecutive secondplace finish. Playing primarily in the back half of the field, Hasch was still able to score five goals in his senior season which ranked him third overall on the team. The senior was also one of Atascadero’s top distributors with three assists on the year, which also placed him third on the team. However, his main responsibility often came in stopping the opposing team’s top offensive weapon and accepting the challenge every night. The Hounds proved that they could play with any team this season when they put it together and that was never more evident than when they tied Clovis North who lost to the eventual CIF Champions in the Division 1 semifinals. Atascadero tied 3-3 and Hasch recorded one of the Hounds’ three scores. Hasch is also a top track athlete and was hoping to make it to the State meet in his senior season.

empleton sophomore Ashlyn Janzen is our Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press Girls Basketball Player Of The Year for leading the Templeton Eagles to a 10-14 overall record and 5-5 in the Ocean League. At only 15 years old, Janzen very nearly averaged a double-double and was an absolute menace on the defensive end. The sophomore dominated down low, grabbing 15 or more rebounds in seven different games (15 rebounds two-times, 16 rebounds two-times and 17 rebounds 3-times.) while also adding 2.5 steals and a block per game. Janzen averaged a steady 9.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for the Eagles but would erupt on occasion when the team needed it. Playing primarily power forward with some time at small forward, Janzen erupted against the Hounds for 14 points and 17 rebounds in a close game the Eagles eventually won. Her single-game high in points was 18 while her single-game high in rebounds was 17.

llison Jespersen is our Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press Girls Wrestler Of The Year for dominance this season as a senior in the Ocean League and especially at the CIF Central Section Meet. Jespersen has wrestled for four years and led the girls team this season by serving as an example of working hard in the practice room and success on the mat. The senior also saved her best wrestling for the biggest moments with the most eyes as she took second place at two big tournaments early in the season and at the CIF. Jespersen went 3-1 during her two days at the CIF Central Section meet which placed her second overall in the 126-pound weight class and tied her for the highest CIF placing of a Greyhound wrestler this season for boys or girls. The following weekend she made the trip to the Masters meet and went 2-2 with some of the best in the state. While she did not advance, she wrestled hard, making her coaches and the program proud.

TEMPLETON ATHLETIC DIRECTOR STEPS DOWN By CONNOR ALLEN After a six-year run operating as the Eagles’ Athletic Director, Lindsay Franklin will now take up a similar mantle for the San Luis Obispo County Special Olympics. Contributed photo

TEMPLETON — Templeton Athletic Director Lindsay Franklin announced via e-mail Monday that she will be stepping down and that her last day with the Eagles will be this Friday, March 20. Franklin has operated as the Eagles Athletic Director for the past six years and will now take on a similar position in San Luis Obispo County working for the Special Olympics. “After serving as the Director of Athlet-

ics at Templeton High School for the past six years, my last day will be Friday, March 20,” Franklin wrote in her e-mail. “I have accepted a similar position with the Special Olympics, SLO County, an organization in which I have always been greatly passionate and involved. While I am excited for this new opportunity, there’s also a big part of me that is sad to say goodbye to our wonderful athletes, coaches, and families. We have achieved great things together and worked hard to make athletics at THS a truly special

experience. THANK YOU for your support, encouragement, and teamwork over the past six years. As always, GO EAGLES!” Templeton Athletics has certainly seen an uptick under Franklin’s tenure, especially during the past few years as the Eagles won a CIF Championship in softball a year ago and the boys baseball team made it to the CIF Division 3 semi-finals. THS also won Ocean League titles in three of their four winter sports and a Ocean League title in swimming in 2019.

FOOD BANK CONTINUED FROM A1

ALF and PLF officials said they are seeing the results of people’s panic buying and hoarding food. Though still able to provide those in need with food, supply chains are being strained. “We get a lot of food from a program called Fresh Rescue,” Vail said. “We get the dated food items from local supermarkets, and normally that’s a good supply for us for dairy, meat and some shelf-stable items, but because the supermarkets have pretty much been wiped out that has dried up almost completely. But we are still getting major produce, and shelf-stable items from the SLO Food Bank and that is sustaining us along with the purchases we make.” Located at 5411 El Camino Real, Atascadero, Atascadero Loaves & Fishes serves the residents of Atascadero, Creston, Templeton, Santa Margarita, and California Valley. The nonprofit operates Monday through Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. Clients are asked to wait outside or in their cars for a volunteer to approach them.

shine operation, and a call from the FBI could certainly have disturbed the family spirits. After sifting through reactionary thoughts, he was assured that it was the FBI in need of sanitizer, and his curiosity turned to surprise. “They are organized, and you would think they have access to supplies,” Bergh said, “but they are out just like everyone else.” Being a local source for a federal agency in a time like this lifted the spirits of Bergh, and he said he hoped others would be inspired to do what they could to help in this time. “They have agents out in the field as part of the COVID19 response team, and they are worried about running out of hand sanitizer,” Bergh said. “This sanitizer is going to make a huge difference in keeping them and the public safe.” GETTING THE WORD OUT

First responders, government agencies, and charities in need of hand sanitizer may also contact Bergh at sanitizer@ calwisespirits.com. His current pricing — based on existing supply costs — is $15 per gallon, which stands in contrast to the high markups seen elsewhere on hand sanitizer. “I hope to get more of our hand sanitizer out there so that our public servants can safely do their jobs in this time of

According to Bergh, the FDA has given distilleries the authority to produce sanitizer under World Health Organization standards. “As far as I know, this has never happened in the United States, it’s totally unprecedented,” he said. Bergh’s sanitizer is made with three key ingredients: glycerin, hydrogen peroxide, and ethanol alcohol, typically used for making spirits. He is quick to point out that other local businesses have helped him secure necessary supplies, including Cook’s Vanilla, Golden Apple Cannabis, and RS Paul Construction. “These companies have stepped up and helped make a difference,” Bergh said. “This is truly a community effort.” However, Bergh is concerned about possible future supply chain issues and is hoping to crowdsource additional supplies, if needed. “Although I’m adequately stocked right now, I’m concerned about supplies running out, and I may be needing additional hydrogen peroxide and glycerin, as well as large bottles and other containers for packaging,” he said. “I invite anyone who might have inventory or access to these items to contact me.”

square foot facility into a sanitizer plant, the 27-year old California native had landed in Paso Robles to produce local spirits with a local flavor. “I got started out of college,” Bergh said. “I was a hobbyist and worked as a home distiller. People wanted to drink quality local spirits, so I decided to go legit.” Perhaps nothing is as legit as the Calwise flagship spirit, Big Sur Gin, made with light sage, bay, and elderberry. “We want to make spirits that give you a sense of place,” Bergh said. “Big Sur Gin is made with grapes and local plants that grow in Big Sur.” The ingredients are sourced through local vendors, but some of it is harvested by hand during Bergh’s hikes through local hills and mountains. Due to the coronavirus concerns and shelter-athome orders by the State, it is unknown when Calwise will open back up for regular business — which had included a restaurant, tastings, and cocktails made to order. “I wish I could remember what regular business was like,” Bergh said.

I didn’t see any cost-effective opportunities or supplies for them,” Bergh said. “I have all the supplies here, and by the time I decided to begin, it took about 12 hours to get started production.” Calwise has since produced 200 gallons of hand sanitizer and is continuing as supplies allow. “It is a supply chain issue,” Bergh said. “It is a matter of connecting the dots, finding out who needs it, and getting it to those people. I’ve always liked working on solving the puzzle of logistics.” By jumping in and helping, Bergh said he hoped to inspire others to make a difference — from volunteering at food banks to delivering meals to seniors — it was about taking action. “You can make a difference in the community,” Bergh said. While Bergh’s focus is on agencies, he is also working on 5-ounce sizes of the hand sanitizer to provide local consumer needs.

BLOOD BANK CONTINUED FROM A1

Services, and some Central Coast natives might remember them as Tri-county Blood Bank. Vitalant operates a mobile medical unit, where it parks in various locations throughout the County an invites people to donate blood. “We’re scrambling, trying to find places to park our bus,” Kleman said. “Obviously, filling that many voids is very difficult and challenging and I don’t expect that we will be able to do that. We have filled a few of those days, but we still have many of those days that are open without drives being scheduled. We do consider donating blood as an essential activity that is necessary to the health and well being of the community. So it does fall under acts or events that are essential. We don’t consider blood donation drives a gathering. It’s really something that you are doing to ensure the health of your friends and neighbors and the community.” Each donation, approximately a pint of blood, provides up to three units that contain platelets and

plasma. According to the American Red Cross, one car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood, and approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U.S. Nearly 7,000 units of platelets and 10,000 units of plasma are needed daily in the U.S. alone. Kleman said that donations aid more than trauma victims and that cancer patients have the greatest need for transfusions. “Often time their ongoing therapy can take months or even years, and during that time period than can receive multiple transfusions,” Kleman said. Prior to giving blood, donators must go through a short screening process than involves answering a brief questionnaire and a minor health examination that takes essential vital readings such as blood pressure, temperature, and pulse.

LIFTING SPIRITS

In the meantime, Calwise continues to manufacture sanitizer for agencies. The adaptation from spirits to sanitizer happened quickly. “It was such a day-by-day thing,” Bergh said. “I thought I’d have to restrict my hours and capacity; then we got shut down completely.” Sitting on a supply of ethanol alcohol, and hit with the same wave of uncertainty as everyone else, Bergh hesitated in moving forward. “I didn’t want to start making that and taking advantage of people who need it,” Bergh said. “Then I started noticing agencies calling out for needs. Homeless shelters, food banks, hospitals, and other organizations began to feel the need for an otherwise ordinary industry commodity. With the DISTILLING A DREAM demand, hand sanitizer became Before turning his 6,000 scarce.
