Hop’s Bounce House of Atascadero Donates Over 100 Backpacks This is Hop’s fourth year hosting its community back-toschool drive By CHRISTIANNA MARKS christianna@atascaderonews.com

ATASCADERO — Back in 2018, Hop’s Bounce House owners David and Laurel Shepherd saw a need in Atascadero and decided to help fill it. Four years later, Hop’s back-to-school drive is still going strong, providing backpacks and school supplies to children in the community, making their transition back to school a smooth one. This year the back-to-school drive started on Wednesday, Aug. 3. “The first year, we just wanted to give back to the

community. We bought like 20 backpacks for people that needed them. And then each year, it’s just kind of grown,” said Hop’s Bounce House co-owner Laurel Shepherd. “This year, we could see there was a major need for it, so we ended up buying 140 [backpacks], and those were gone within two days.” All year long, Hop’s has a donation jar set out in their business for anyone to contribute to the project. This year they raised around $300 to help buy school supplies, which is the most they’ve ever raised. On top of the money raised by the donation jar, the family-run business fills in the rest of the funds needed out of pocket. Shepherd also commented that people from the community have dropped off whatever

EVENTS

ATA S CA D ERO —T h e Atascadero City Council met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 9, at 6 p.m. The hybrid meeting was held in the City Council Chambers. This week’s meeting started with Boy Scout Troop 51 leading everyone in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance. “Thank you very much; it is always an honor when we have the Boy Scouts come and do the flag salute and lead us in the pledge. Thank you so much,” said Mayor Heather Moreno. The Agenda for the evening passed unanimously. Before the Consent Calander passed, Councilmembers Susan Funk and Mayor Heather Moreno had questions on items 6 and 7, respectively. Funk asked if item 6 was specifically for awarding a contract for $310,500 with Tesco Controls, Inc. to purchase a new Motor Control Center for the Lift Station No. 13 only and would the rest of the project be bid separately through the normal process, which was then confirmed by City Manager Rachelle Rickard. Mayor Moreno asked a question on item 7 (Temporary Contract for Nighttime Police/Fire Dispatch Services). The cost comes in at $94,000. “We do mention that some of that cost will be offset by reductions that we have in staffing, but I’m also noticing that there will be a reduction CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

Visit Atascadero Hosts Apple Pie Contest at the California Mid-State Fair Shiela Page of Paso Robles was the first-place winner By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

NORTH COUNTY — Thursday night, July 28, at the California Mid-State Fair (CMSF), apple pie makers from all over the county headed to the Ponderosa Pavilion at 6 p.m. to try their hand at winning Best Apple Pie on the Central Coast. The Apple Pie Contest is a yearly event at the California Mid-State Fair and one of the more popular contests proudly sponsored by Visit Atascadero and The City of Atascadero. “They were the [event] sponsor, [and] helped provide prize money. [They also] integrated into the contest via judges,” said CMSF spokesperson Tom Keffury of Visit Atascadero’s involvement in the competition. This year’s contest had the most entries the fair has ever seen, with over 39 of the area’s best bakers whipping up delicious apple pies and placing them in front of the judges to see who would come out on top. This year’s Apple Pie Contest had five judges, including Atascadero City Council Mayor Pro Tem Heather Newsom, Emilie

Goldstein from Atascadero’s Bramble Pie Co., Alicia and Ian Denchasy from A-Town Humble Pie, and the Dohertys from Carndonagh Kitchen of Atascadero. On their Facebook page, Carndonagh Kitchen stated: “Honored to be asked to be a judge in the apple pie contest at the California Mid-State Fair. Was a lot of fun, and was happy to see how many people entered a pie. Love where I live!” Three pies and their makers won big this year, with Shiela Page of Paso Robles taking first place, Barbara Edman of Atascadero taking second place, and Sarah Johnson of Oceano rounding out the top three in third place. In total, $850 was given out to the top three pie bakers, with $500 going to first place, $250 to second, and $100 to third place. This year’s delicious pies were judged on multiple categories, including the pie’s fillings, their crust’s consistency, and the overall taste of the pies. “Congratulations to the winners. A special thank you to our judges for representing Atascadero too. It’s not easy to judge over 39 pies,” said the City of Atascadero on its Facebook page.

Atascadero Oaks Play in the Friends of Ryan Teixeira Baseball Classic at Pismo Beach Sports Complex Local baseball team took first place in the second annual event, going 4-0 during the weekend’s games By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — On the weekend of July 30 and 31, the Atascadero Oaks baseball team competed in the 2nd Annual Friends of Ryan Teixeira (FORT) Baseball Classic. The tournament took place after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 at the Pismo Beach Sports Complex, and all funds raised by the tournament went directly to the FORT Foundation, which put the Baseball Classic on. “We had the opportunity to play the game we love (and also Ryan loved) while also raising funds for a worthy cause,” said Oaks coach Erik Wanner. Teixeira’s friends created the FORT Foundation after the San Luis Obispo County baseball player lost his battle with cancer in 2017. The foundation’s mission is to provide “Victory Trips” for young adults battling life-threatening diseases, on top of supporting youths in the FFA and more. “The Friends Of Ryan Teixeira Tournament is one we circled on the calendar early in our summer ball plans,” added Wanner. “I got to know Ryan a tiny bit when my son, Evan, was a tee-baller, and Ryan was a teenage umpire when we first moved to the Central Coast. We also knew his later story and how much he loved baseball and youth sports. So having the opportunity

to play in a tournament in his honor, run by his incredibly giving foundation, was a no-brainer.” The Oaks played in the 14U division of the FORT Baseball Classic against other local baseball leagues and organizations. The tournament went the Oaks’ way, as they went 4-0 and outscored their opponents 29-5. The team got outstanding performances from Tournament MVP Zach Savino and Championship Game MVP pitcher Damon Mitchell. “Other standout plays came from Ulysses Kaul, Will Capaci, Reid Gearhart, and Steven Ernst,” Wanner said. “Our defense has been our star all summer, and it continued into the tournament, culminating with a perfect zero-error perfor-

The box dinner includes your choice of two entree options, BBQ Pork Baby Back Ribs

About one-third of students who attend the school are funded through scholarships. They will be back in session starting Sept. 6. McPhee’s Grill’s own Max McPhee is an alumnus of Santa Lucia. Members of the Santa Lucia School would like to thank the McPhee family for their support through the years. For more information on Santa Lucia School or to donate, visit santaluciaschool.org

mance in the championship game. Defensive standout play came from Evan Wanner, George Bowman, Chuck Dahlen, Weston Witt, and Zach Savino.” Wanner and fellow coach Jeremy Gearhart created a credo for the Oaks team this summer, which goes, “Have a purpose, have a plan, have fun.” The boys put that ideology into play at the FORT tournament. “Leading up to the tournament, our practices were extremely crispy and constructive,” Wanner said. “We impressed upon the boys the importance of the tournament and how Ryan approached playing; always giving your best and also how fortunate we all are to have

this opportunity.” The 14-player Oaks includes: Garrett Alldredge, Evan Wanner, Reid Gearhart, Ulysses Kaul, Weston Witt, Miguel Zepeda, Zach Savino, Chuck Dahlen, George Bowman, Steven Ernst, Damon Mitchell, Will Capaci, Isaiah Rodriguez, and Wyatt Litten. “It has been highly rewarding to see the boys’ hard work translate into the successes they have had,” Wanner said. “Coach Jeremy and I feel hard work is always rewarded, and we hope this is a message they can carry with them long into their playing careers and adult lives.” To find out more about the Friends of Ryan Teixeira Foundation, go to fort17.org/.

LOCAL NEWS Public Continues to Question Election Integrity SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY

Supervisors discuss San Luis Obispo countywide fiveyear plan to address homelessness By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Questions were raised on the integrity of the results from the Primary Election during public comment at the Board of San Luis Obispo County Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 9. Concerns regarded the length of time it took to count the votes, the use of electronic counting, and the validity of mail-in ballots. District 5 Supervisor Debbie Arnold responded to the public on the matter and echoed their concerns. “These citizens that are here today that came to speak are here expressing many of the same concerns that I’ve had,” said Arnold. “I just want to thank them for being poll watchers, for being election observers, and that work has led them to continue to work on this issue of election integrity.” At the July 19 supervisor meeting,

Arnold issued concerns on the election process. During that meeting, all the supervisors, except Arnold, certified the 2022 Primary Election results. At the time, Arnold issued her concerns over the security and accuracy of the election due to recent changes to the election process, including mail-in ballots, use of drop boxes, and use of machine tabulations. District 3 Supervisor Dawn OrtizLegg followed Arnold with a different opinion on the subject. “It’s really hard to listen to this week after week,” said Ortiz-Legg. “The good old days of hand counting, there’s lots of inaccuracies on that. There’s plenty of reporting on that.” She added, “I want to be respectful to you and all, but I also know that we have a really good system. And while there are changes afoot, we have to continue to stay on top of it. I appreciate that.” Following closed session, supervisors returned to discuss the proposed five-year countywide plan to address homelessness. The plan is broken into three phases: • 2022-2023 focuses on building

interim housing capacity, prevention, and data • 2023-2025 will focus on expanded service capacity, and regional compact • 2025-2027 will focus on increased housing capacity and data-driven refinements The plan says it addresses homelessness by viewing it as a condition that can be broken down into component elements, addressing them individually and simultaneously. To do this, the components are broken into six Lines of Effort (LOE). 1. Build Affordable Housing: Create affordable and appropriately designed housing opportunities and shelter options for underserved populations. This LOE is considered the Main Effort of this strategy and is supported by the other five LOEs. This structure of LOEs intends to communicate the idea that if we do not ultimately increase the stock of affordable and appropriate housing, we can never truly reduce homelessness in the long term. 2. Expand Services: Focus efforts to reduce or eliminate the barriers to housing stability for those experi-

encing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, including prevention, diversion, supportive services, and housing navigation efforts. 3. Improve Data: Improve and expand data management efforts through Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) and coordinated entry system to strengthen data-driven operational guidance and strategic oversight. 4. Create, Identify and Streamline Funding: Create, identify, and streamline funding and resources. 5. Strengthen Regional Collaboration: Create regional, coordinated response to homelessness to minimize duplication of effort and improve system effectiveness to reduce homelessness. 6. Public engagement: Build public engagement through information-sharing and partnerships. The entire five-year plan can be found at agenda.slocounty.ca.gov/ iip/sanluisobispo/file/getfile/144625 Funding for the plan will come from General Fund Support, ARPA, ESG-CV, HHAP2, HHAP3, and Future of Public Health Funding Allocation 2022 (ongoing). The current year’s financial impact is at $911,879 and the annual financial impact is estimated at $1,226,867.

Arnold motioned to approve and direct staff to proceed with the implementation of the San Luis Obispo Countywide Plan to Address Homelessness 2022-2027. District 1 Supervisor John Peschong seconded the motion. After some discussion among the supervisors, they added direction to staff to develop a process for producing a behavioral health services strategic plan and return to the board as soon as possible to put it into motion. The added direction came after supervisors found it important to add a plan to address behavioral health as they said, when they discuss homelessness, behavioral health is also brought into the conversation. “I wanted to thank all the people that are here that put this together. Thank you for all of your hard work,” Peschong said. “Also missing today, I want to thank the sheriff ’s deputies, also CalFire, our local police departments in the cities and our fire departments that are on the front line of this crisis.” The five-year plan was unanimously approved by the supervisors. The next SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting is scheduled for Aug. 23 at 9 a.m.

Former Cal Poly Police Investigator, Party Host Testify in Kristin Smart Murder Trial

Jury hears testimony from former Cal Poly student and high school friend of Paul Flores

fall on the floor with Paul Flores on the floor next to her. When the party was over, Davis loaded up a green Ford Taurus with five to six people and had a friend drive them home. He saw Cheryl Anderson and told her she just missed her ride but offered to walk her home. Before they left, Davis told the jury he noticed Kristin lying on the lawn of the neighboring house. Davis told Kristin she needed to leave, and when he approached her she had ‘goose pimples’ on her skin and she said she was cold and wanted to go home. Davis then helped her stand. Davis began to walk Anderson and Kristin back to their dorms — helping Kristin walk and stand. He said Paul “appeared out of nowhere” and began to walk with them. Davis testified that he left Paul with Anderson and Kristin as his house was in another direction. He said Kristin originally told him her name was Roxy, but he later found out her real identity. Under cross-examination by Paul’s attorney, Robert Sanger, Davis confirmed that he had never met Kristin or Paul before and neither were invited to the party. He also confirmed he told investigators that Kristin tried to kiss and hug him when trying to get her home. Davis then confirmed he told San Luis Obispo County Deputy District Attorney Christopher Peuvrelle that he wanted to put Paul away, and that was his reason for testifying.

The jury submitted several questions to the judge for Davis. The jury asked if Paul used Kristin’s name during the walk back to the dorms or if her speech was difficult to understand. Davis answered no to both questions.

take the stand. He was assigned to investigate the Kristin Smart case as a missing person case and began seeking people to interview who attended the Crandall Way party on May 24. At 5 p.m. that day, he spoke to Paul in his dorm room in San Lucia Hall. He said Paul appeared nervous. Kennedy interviewed Paul again that Thursday at the Cal Poly Police Department. Kennedy said he noticed a bruise under Paul’s eye. Paul told Kennedy both times it was an injury from a basketball game. He then testified that Paul told him he parted ways from Kristin near the driveway behind Sequoia Hall and he went back to his dorm room, went to bed, and then took a shower around 5 a.m. Additionally, he said that Paul told him he last saw Kristin near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Perimeter Road. His testimony was expected to continue on Tuesday but will now pick up on Wednesday. On Monday, another one of Ruben’s jurors was excused, and an alternate was sworn in. The trial was moved to Salinas after San Luis Obispo County Judge Craig van Rooyen ruled the father and son would not receive a fair trial in SLO County. While Paul and Ruben are being tried together, they will have separate juries. The trial is expected to last into October. Paso Robles Press will be following this story and update as new information becomes available.

By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Kristin Smart murder trial resumed testimony on Monday and was unexpectedly postponed on Tuesday due to a juror’s absence. Trial is expected to pick up again at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Paul Flores is on trial for Kristin’s murder. The 19-year-old Cal Poly student went missing following the Crandall Way party over Memorial Day weekend in May 1996. While Kristin’s remains have not been found, she was legally declared dead in 2002. Paul’s father Ruben Flores is accused of helping him cover up the crime. On Monday, testimony continued with another former Cal Poly student who was one of the last people to see Kristin alive. Tim Davis At the time, Davis was a junior at Cal Poly and one of the students who organized the off-campus party on Crandall Way. He told jurors he has had to relive that night for the past 26 years. At one point during the party, Davis saw Kristin

Jeromy Moon Jeromy Moon, Paul’s high school friend, then took the witness stand. Moon told Peuvrelle that he met with Paul the Sunday after Kristin went missing. He noticed Paul had a bruise on his eye. Paul told him he woke up with the bruise. They met again the next day, Monday, to play basketball with two other people and confirmed Paul did not get hit in the face during the game. James Camp District Attorney Investigator J.T. Camp took the stand to testify about his meeting with Moon prior to the preliminary hearing. Sanger questioned him extensively about whether they’d discussed the discrepancies in the various interviews. Camp said he showed Moon all of the interview reports but didn’t discuss discrepancies.

CRIME

APD Respond to Armed Robbery Call at Home Depot Law enforcement is still on the lookout for the suspect STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — Atascadero Law Enforcement responded to an armed robbery call from a Home Depot employee advising a clerk had been a victim of an armed robbery on Saturday afternoon. On Aug. 6, Atascadero Police Department (APD) received the 911

call at approximately 3:55 p.m. On arrival, APD units contacted the employee and learned that the suspect walked into the nursery wearing a grey neck “gator” that covered his entire face. Later, the suspect walked up to the nursery check-out stand and placed a power tool on the counter, and demanded the clerk give him all of the money out of the cash drawer. The suspect then lifted up his shirt, and the clerk saw the handle of the

black pistol in his waistband. The suspect again demanded money from the register to which the clerk said she could not open it until the transaction for the tool was completed. The suspect then picked up the box and walked out of the store. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult, approximately 5’9” tall. He was wearing blue jeans, a grey-colored gator covering his face, a tan-colored hat, a black shirt with a

star on the back, and a grey-colored long sleeve shirt underneath with a black wrist watch on his left wrist. He was last seen getting into a dark green older model Honda Civic and leaving the area. This incident is under investigation by the Atascadero Police Department. Anyone who witnessed the incident is encouraged to contact the Atascadero Police Department at (805) 461-5051.

‘….Out with the Bathwater’

CONNIE PILLSBURY COMMENTARY

Y

ou all know the adage, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.” This refers to eliminating something good when trying to get rid of something bad, i.e., rejecting the favorable along with the unfavorable. The practical application of this idiom is highly visible in the

public-school classroom. Let’s start with cursive handwriting, which was discarded in the Common Core Era to make room for keyboarding and non-essential topics as sensitivity training. We now have a generation of high school graduates who can’t even sign their name, read grandma’s letters, or the original Declaration of Independence. Fortunately, after parents realized their graduating children were only capable of chicken-scratch printing, 21 states have now mandated statewide cursive instruction starting in third grade. California is not among them. According to Atascadero Unified School District, it is up to the individual teacher as to whether cursive

will be taught in their classroom. For local parents and grandparents, this means that cursive will probably be taught at home. One of the best programs is The HEV Project on YouTube, “How to Write in Cursive.” HEV teaches the basic strokes through a series of 33 short lessons, along with free lined cursive writing paper. Back to the bathwater. Sixty years ago on June 25, 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court banned prayers from public schools. Because the mostly protestant-based prayers offended a few, they were tossed out for all. Along with prayer, all mention of God was eliminated from classrooms across America. Children could no longer hear the simple and basic message that God

loves them and will care for them. Now, six decades later, we see the results of that “tossing.” As Bob Dylan sang, “You gotta serve somebody…,” we have neglected our children’s souls and left the classroom an open field for replacements for faith in God. And yes, the replacements by the “experts” are many. These substitutes for faith are mostly destructive social engineering programs under varied smooth-sounding names that leave our children bewildered, confused, and depressed. And how about this for creating chaos in the K-8 classroom? Because a “few” students missed too much school due to being suspended or expelled, those practices are now prohibited by

the State Dept of Education. The “experts” recommended support in lieu of suspension. In the misguided attempt to “talk” and “reason” away behavior problems, teachers now have their hands tied when it comes to consequences for misbehavior. As the bathwater splashes, out goes classroom control. As you read this, you may further understand why so many local parents have opted for alternative forms of education. The public school system is run by strangers and unions far away in Sacramento and the Bay Area, whose values and standards are foreign and even offensive to our beliefs and way of life. Our own school board, even though attempting to

maintain local control, is under arbitrary mandates of the state and non-negotiable demands of insurance regulations. Much of the good that our local public schools, our administrators and teachers strive for, therefore, has been tossed out with the bathwater due to over-regulation by the state, elite “expert” control, power groups, special interests, political agendas and unions. And as usual, the ones hurt the most by this are the children, the innocent babes in the bathwater.

Just the Facts: Part 3, Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs)

JOHN SALISBURY COMMENTARY

T

he last two articles were about the problems of batteries, solar, and windmills and how they shouldn’t be the main source of renewable energy because they are not going to be sustainable. That is because of the lack of supplies, minerals, tariffs, foreign dependence on needed rare earth materials, and numerous other embedded costs you do not hear about. Plus, the destruction of the earth’s crust from all the digging and just alone the huge amount of non-renewable fossil fuels used throughout the complete womb to tomb operation from mining, processing, construction, and transportation between operations of the solar and windmills to their final destination. There isn’t the physical ability to kick up energy production when needed for hot summers or cold winters because you can’t crank up the wind to blow more nor expand the number of hours of sunshine like you can do by pumping more fossil fuels. It is what it is, and solar and windmills are not the technology to mostly rely upon for renewable energy for the basket to put in all your eggs in. Watch out this summer. Blackouts are coming, and the 23 percent combination of solar and wind isn’t going to

cut it ramping up to help alleviate the increased demand. Look to PG&E cranking up all the large dirty diesel generators they have been quietly buying. How many Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) are going to be stranded waiting for the power to come on to charge their batteries in a blackout on a trip just from San Luis Obispo to San Francisco or Los Angeles? I can see ZEVs for tooling around town or short distances, but not for anything over 250 miles. I drove by Madonna Inn’s 17 charging stations on a Sunday, probably many travelers on their way home; all the chargers were filled with five cars waiting, which reminded me of the gas lines in the 70s. With only 93,000 public chargers scattered around the country, that is hardly enough to handle the numbers of ZEVs and hybrids out there. Feds sent the states $424 million for public chargers four years ago, and only half has been spent. Some of the money got siphoned off into other projects like lower-emissions bus fleets and maybe a Bullet Train to nowhere. Feds are now proposing sending states $7.5 billion for 500,000 public chargers, one every 50 miles along major routes, but estimates are that 1.2 million will probably be needed in eight years. The money will most likely face a similar path as the first allotment. A recent study reported by the Wall Street Journal in the San Franciso Bay Area found that less than three-quarters of the charging station worked. Plugs, screens, and payment systems were broken, plus many connector cords weren’t long enough to even reach the car’s hookup

port. You do know if you run out of charge on the road, you will need to call a flatbed tow truck to haul you and your ZEV to a charging station; plus, you can’t tow a ZEV with a chain without causing damage. There is a standard 40-pound battery on board for electrical accessories like radio, air conditioning, etc., so you may be able to get some charging into the 1,000-pound battery, but it is kind of like mating a Jackrabbit with a dairy cow. With ZEVs at an average of 35 percent more expensive than gas-powered vehicles (new Hyundai - $70,000), Tesla just raised their prices by $6,000 across the board, and others are following suit. Small ZEV car makers are experiencing a cash crunch because of difficulties raising capital and logistics headaches and are trading on the stock market at 80 to 95 percent below their peaks, and several may not survive. U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, who just exercised a 1.6 million dollar stock option in an electric vehicle technology firm, says if Americans are fed up with high gas prices, they should just purchase an electric car. That is like Marie Antoinette saying, “Let them eat cake,” and you know what happened to her! I am sure my farm worker friends who are squeezed down to just 40 hours/week because of the new time and a half pay rule and usually drive at least 25 miles daily to work with low mpg cars at $6.50+/gallon can pop for one of them. A study by the World Bank, in an article by economist Stephen Moore, states that moving to 100 percent wind, electric batteries,

and solar energy would be just as destructive planet-wise as fossil fuels because of millions of tons of raw materials needed from non-friendly countries. We have the potential to dig and process many of these minerals here in the states, but exploration, new mines, and operation of existing mines are being held up by environmental opposition. I guess it is alright to dig into other countries with lousy environmental and labor guidelines that add much more to world pollution than we do. The President is thinking about invoking the War Time Defense Production Act to boost domestic production of these minerals but good luck with that unless he loosens up the regular environmental review rules and gets those environmentalists, tribal activists, and uncompromising greenie religious acolytes on his side. With the U.S. now getting around 70 percent of its energy from fossil fuels, getting to zero fossil fuels in the next two decades would be economically catastrophic and the loss of millions of jobs. Moore, along with E.J. Antoni, also provided an “Apples to Apples” comparison done by the U.S. Energy Information Administration measuring initial costs, the lifespan of generation and storage systems, maintenance and fossil fuel costs, decommissioning expenses since windmills and solar panels do not last very long and need to be replaced, subsidies, etc., and compared with how much electricity is produced over a power plant’s lifetime versus natural gas. The Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) and Storage (LCOS) used for measures found solar

and on-shore windmill farms are four times more expensive than natural gas. Offshore windfarms, upcoming off of Morro Bay, are six times more expensive than natural gas, which is a lot more reliable for the same electricity. I would wager that pumping natural gas out of the ground, which we have a lot of, is a heck of a lot better environmentally than other unfriendly countries around the world digging up the earth’s crust for exotic minerals. Once again, “Green” wind and sun energy are “non-dispatchable,” which means their output can’t be changed to match increased demand. To put things into perspective, Bloomberg reported that the land space for windmills and solar panels to get to zero carbon in the USA in the next 30 years would require a land area equal to five South Dakotas “to develop enough clean power to run all the electric vehicles, factories, and more.” Just to keep Manhatten lit up at night, you would need to pave over Connecticut with solar farms and windmills. How about a pause while coming up and playing catchup with better zero-emission ideas and in the transition period, beef up our fossil fuel production, open up mines and finish up the nearly completed canceled pipelines without draconian environmental rules, and cut back on the littering and tieing up the landscape with solar and windmills, no more pressuring financial institutions from loaning to drillers, and quit begging hostile and autocratic countries, including sanctioned Iran and Venezuela, all over the world to pump more of their dirty oil as compared ours just so

we can get gas prices down. It is just transference because it will be drilled instead of our cleaner fossil fuels if we import their lousy fuel, a classic “out of sight—out of mind.” Talk to Alaska, North Dakota, Texas, and other oil-producing states instead. Get back to where we were net exporters again. We should build, replace, or resurrect some refineries since none have been able to be built since the 1970s with a guarantee they won’t be shut down by the government until an agreed-upon time. These would put Americans back working, especially because most solar and windmills products are not made here in the states, we just install them. Next month, we will propose some ideas to invest in and research for better homegrown emission-free production, including Modular Nuclear Fission Plants, Green Hydrogen, enhanced Geothermal drilling, underwater and surface turbines harnessing tide movement, kite-powered energy by the wind to generators, ocean kites for towing ships, space-based solar harvesting sunlight, better less dependent rare earth batteries, and many more innovations. “Elite ideology divorced from reality impoverishes people and can get them killed.” Victor David Hanson (i.e. Congo children (40,000) hand digging toxic cobalt for ZEVs and Uyghur and Muslim convict labor in Xinjiang, China for highly toxic polysilicon for solar panels) John Salisbury is an independent columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press.

Oil and Gas Costing Us Even More Than We Thought

TOM ELIAS

COMMENTARY

T

he idea that oil companies and gasoline refiners could gouge Californians – and other Americans to a lesser degree – by as much as 100 percent of the previous price of gasoline seemed utterly preposterous until February. That’s when President Biden slapped an embargo on Russian oil, depriving California refineries of between 2 percent and 3 percent of the supplies they had been using. Average pump prices

instantly rose from $4.70 per gallon across the state to above $6. Later, in some places, prices even topped $9 per gallon, about twice their price just six months ago. That’s gouging, pure and simple. Yes, the worldwide price of oil was up, but not in anywhere near such large proportions. Many citizens are still making excuses for oil companies, but their financial reports make it clear they are reaping windfall profits in the billions of dollars. Now comes a new report that indicates the money motorists are losing to the cartel-like oil industry is just a fraction of what consumption of oil and gas really costs us, when all the wrinkles and ripples are figured in. How does $10 trillion by the year 2045 sound? That’s the figure arrived at by the Consumer Watchdog advocacy group, whose

analysts are the first to even attempt figuring all the expenses that are and will be created by use of oil and natural gas over the next 20 years-plus. The report gains credibility from the fact that Consumer Watchdog is the outfit whose 1987 ballot initiative curtailing insurance prices in California now saves people here more than $3 billion per year. That’s an average of almost $80 per year per Californian of all ages and ethnicities. So it can be a mistake to ignore the group’s oil cost estimates, as virtually all California media have since the issuance of the report in late spring. Here are just some of the annual costs listed in the report from use of oil and natural gas over the next 23 years: $94.2 billion from wildfires and drought. $1.4 billion in heat-re-

lated deaths indirectly caused by California oil wells, $339 billion for smog controls. That’s a total annual cost of $434.6 billion for using and drilling petroleum, or $10 trillion over 23 years, about 70 percent more than it costs to run the federal government for one year – including huge programs like Medicare, Social Security and the military. Are those figures realistic? Look at the wildfire number: Despite all its mitigation moves of the last 25 years, California is the No. 2 emitter of greenhouse gases among U.S. states, surpassed only by Texas. The state Air Resources Board says 85 percent of the greenhouse gases produced here stem from production and use of fossil fuels, helping further both dry conditions and extreme heat that have exacerbated the state’s pre-existing problems with wild-

fires, vastly driving up property damage, lives lost and firefighting costs. “One third of the costs of drought (and the fires it furthers) can be attributed to greenhouse gas emissions caused by (burning) fossil fuels,” says the report. Global warming driven by oil use will add to the costs listed, too, by raising sea levels and destroying further billions of dollars in property before 2045. Then there’s the smog mostly created by both vehicles and oil- or gas-fired electric generating plants. Costs of treating emphysema, not to mention creation of electric vehicles and other smog-fighting measures, already amount to more than damage from wildfires. It all makes the state’s efforts to cut greenhouse gases via a cap-and-trade program, smokestack filters and other tactics look

puny. What’s more, the estimated $10 trillion 23-year cost of using and drilling oil and natural gas does not include what motorists spend for gasoline, the price of which has fallen from its peak, but is never again likely to sink to pre-February levels. All these numbers matter only if their sheer shock value causes actions. But that’s not likely, as this report now looks to be ignored, just as the state auditor’s springtime report on the unreliability of California housing need estimates never spurred so much as a word of reaction from either Gov. Newsom or state Attorney General Rob Bonta. Thomas Elias is an independent opinion columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email him at tdelias@aol.com.

ning. Commonly known as: 1 Blue Jay Unit 196, Paso Robles, CA 93446 The sale will be held at breezeway adjacent to County General Services, 1087 Santa Rosa Street, San Luis Obispo, CA. The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development will bid an estimate of $480,459.80. There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his prorata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling $48,045.98 [10% of the Secretary’s bid] in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. Each oral bid need not be accompanied by a deposit. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $48,045.98 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence. This amount, like the bid deposits, must be delivered in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. If the Secretary is the high bidder, he need not pay the bid amount in cash. The successful bidder will pay all conveyancing fees, all real estate and other taxes that are due on or after the delivery of the remainder of the payment and all other costs associated with the transfer of title. At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned to them. The Secretary may grant an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the

extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD Field Office representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The commissioner may, at the direction of the HUD field office Representative, offer the Property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The amount that must be paid if the Mortgage is to be reinstated prior to the scheduled sale is $480,459.80, as of 8/29/2022, plus all other amounts that would be due under the mortgage agreement if payments under the mortgage had not been accelerated, advertising costs and postage expenses incurred in giving notice, mileage by the most reasonable road distance for posting notices and for the Foreclosure Commissioner’s attendance at the sale, reasonable and customary costs incurred for title and lien record searches, the necessary out-of-pocket costs incurred by the Foreclosure Commissioner for recording documents, a commission for the Foreclosure Commissioner, and all other costs incurred in connection with the foreclosure prior to reinstatement.

ast Friday evening, I attended “Show Us Your Talent,” presented by the Atascadero Printery Foundation, and I was reminded of a talent show we attended in Cresent, Oklahoma, in the late 60s. It was the 4th of July, and we were visiting my aunt and uncle, who lived in Hennessey, a neighboring town. It was a tradition for three of the communities in the area to each take a night and plan an event. The nights included the 4th of July. It was Cresent’s turn to plan for the 4th that year, and there was a big crowd. The talent show preceded the fireworks in

I

n our last several meditations, I have discussed the wonderful, biblical truth that God has personally chosen to live with human beings. God has, in the past history of the earth, saved people who have believed in Him and then chosen to dwell with them on earth. This began with Moses, who built a tabernacle for God to live in and this continued when Solomon, the King of Israel, built a magnificent temple in Jerusalem for God to personally abide in so that God and man could fellowship together. The greatest manifestation of God’s presence among man on earth was when the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, became incarnate (became a human being living in a physical human body John 1:1-3, 14). Jesus lived on the earth for over thirty years before He died for the sins of the world, was buried, rose again from the dead, and returned to heaven (1

Corinthians 15:1-5, Acts 1:9-11). In our last meditation, I wrote about Jesus’ teaching of returning to heaven to prepare a special place for believers who are His bride to live with Him forever. Jesus clearly claimed to be the only way to get to this prepared place (John 14:1-6). A person prepares to go to this prepared place by believing in Jesus as their personal Savior (John 3:16-18). Jesus proclaimed to be three things in John14:1-6: 1) The “way” to go to heaven; 2) The “truth”, which is the absolute confidence that what He says is accurate and reliable; 3) The “life” which meant He was the only source of receiving everlasting life ( John 5:24, 6:33-40). Jesus then made a very exclusive statement: “No one comes to the Father, except through me” (John 14:6). There is exclusively only one way to go to this prepared place in heaven. It is thru the Savior Jesus Christ. The apostle Peter at a later time proclaimed this truth in Acts 4:12. The only name that can save is Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul also proclaimed this essential truth in Romans 10:913. Whosoever calls on the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved

(Romans10:13). The exclusiveness of going to heaven only thru Jesus Christ is clearly based on other biblical truths: 1) Jesus Christ was the only begotten Son of God sent from heaven to save the world (John 3:16-18, 6:32-38). The Son of God lived in heaven before being sent into the world to save it (Hebrews 10:5-10). Only Christ was sent from heaven to save the world. 2) Jesus Christ is the only sacrifice that can remove the penalty of sin and provide the forgiveness of sin (Luke 24:46-47, Acts 13:38-39, Ephesians 1:6-7). Jesus proclaimed to provide forgiveness for the whole world. The apostle Paul said that forgiveness was provided by God’s grace and received by faith. John the Baptist proclaimed that Jesus was the “Lamb of God” who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29.36). Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross paid the penalty of sin for the whole world (Romans 3:2325, 1 John 4:10). Only Christ’s sacrifice for sin could save us from God’s wrath (Romans 5:8-10). Paul, the apostle, clearly proclaimed that reconciliation to God could only be provided by Christ’s death.

Therefore, it is clear that only saved people who believe in Jesus will go to heaven to eternally enjoy the place Jesus is preparing for them. The exclusiveness of the way to go to heaven is based upon Jesus being the eternal Son of God who was sent to earth to save the whole world and the Sacrifice of Jesus on the cross that saves man from God’s wrath and provides everlasting life, forgiveness of sin and reconciliation. These are the biblical reasons for Jesus saying “No one comes to the Father except through me”(John 14:6). I truly hope that Jesus is your personal Savior. Lessons to be learned: 1. God’s Love has provided a way for sinners to go to heaven. 2. Christ’s person and sacrifice for sin has provided the only way to go to heaven. 3. Going to heaven is a free gift given to everyone who believes in Jesus as their Savior (Ephesians 2:8-9) Heaven is a Prepared Place for Prepared People.

Shay Angles landed the $200 second-place prize for her cover of “Every Girl Like Me,” originally performed by Sugarland. Finally, world-renowned crooner Eddie Davin took the $100 third-place prize for his rendition of The Righteous Brother’s “Unchained Melody.” This summer’s talent show raised approximately $2,500 to go towards getting the Printery building open to the public. Currently, the building is red-tagged, and the Printery can only host events outside,

where they use an old skate ramp as a stage. The Printery has raised almost $200,000 towards removing the red-tag, but the total retrofit cost will be closer to about $2 million. “We’re trying to get the community excited because this building is for you,” McNamara stated to the audience during her speech during the talent show.
