ATASCADERO — On Tuesday, Aug. 2, at 6 p.m., the Atascadero Planning Commission met to discuss upcoming revisions on Urban Dwelling Units (UDUs), Urban Lot Splits, and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). “So tonight we’re discussing Accessory Dwelling Units and Urban Dwelling Units,” said Senior Planner Kelly Gleason at the beginning of her Public Hearing presentation. “It’s been a topic of conversation for a couple of years, and we finally have enough legal opinion and have gone through state laws enough to have an idea of where

we can go with an ordinance for our municipal code on both of these topics.” On Jan. 1, 2021, changes were made to the ADU laws, and SB 9 became effective Jan. 1, 2022. SB 9 is a new state law that requires cities to allow UDUs and Urban Lot Splits on single-family residential properties in designated areas to increase housing. Atascadero adopted an interim ordinance for SB 9 in December 2021. “A portion of our ordinance is still in effect, but this is an update to that ordinance to ensure that we’re completely compliant with State Law,” Gleason continued. Two resolutions were recommended. Resolution A: Title 9 zoning would replace Chapter 5, specifically related to ADUs, and Resolution B: Updating Title 9 with the new standard and definitions.

Spirit Drinkers Hit the Distillery Trail Weekend

The Distillery Trail teamed up with Toast Tours for the first time to provide safe rides to participants By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Last weekend, Aug. 12 through 14, spirit drinkers from the Central Coast and beyond headed out on the Distillery Trail. The weekend featured the best hard alcohol being made in San Luis Obispo County and was put on by the Distillers of SLO County. The three-day weekend featured 14 different distilleries, 10 located in North County and four in South County. Each distillery showed off its craft booze and catered to participants with mixology demonstrations, live music, food pairings, and more. “We’re 14 distilleries strong. The other cool thing is we’re the only organized distillery trail in the state,” said Aaron Bergh, president and distiller at Calwise Spirits Co. in Paso Robles and current president of the Distillers of SLO County. “We’re really putting Paso Robles and the SLO County area on the map as being the region for spirits in California and the country in general. There aren’t, there’s Kentucky, there’s Tennessee, a little bit in Oregon, but this really this is one of the main hot spots in the country.” The Central Coast distilleries featured this year included; Autry Cellars, Azeo Distill-

ery, Bethel Rd. Distillery, Calwise Spirits Co., Distillery Cheval, Donati Spirits, Grain + Vine, Krobar Craft Distillery, Pendray’s Distillery, Re:Find Distillery, Rod and Hammer’s SLO Stills, SLO De Vie Distillery, Tin City Distillery, and Willow Creek Distillery. “It’s been super fun,” said Bethel Rd. Distillery’s Bri Woo, who’s been working

there for two years. “It’s good to have the opportunity for everyone, customers to be incentivized to hop over to each one [distillery]. Figure out what they like, figure out what we all do.” This year, the Distillery Trail Weekend included the option of a limited-edition Copper Card, laser engraved with all 14 distillery’s names. The $85 card included a

tasting flight at each distillery, did not have to be used on the trail weekend, and has no expiration date. “It’s been a great success,” Bergh said of the weekend. “This is our [Calwise’s] third year doing it, and it certainly, we can certainly tell that the momentum and the buzz is building. The past years have all been good, but over the past few years, we’ve just seen it progressively get more and more popular, and more and more people are coming out for it.” Attendees were also encouraged to pick up a trail map, collect stamps, and after going to at least six distilleries, trade them in for a special edition SLO Distillers flask. This year, the Distillery Trail also teamed up with Toast Tours out of Paso Robles, who offered luxury packaged rides to people out tasting so they could enjoy the weekend safely and comfortably. “[It] was kind of a little pilot program. We didn’t advertise it a ton; we just wanted to try it out,” Bergh said. “It was a huge success, so next year we’re really going to bump up the transportation partner aspect of it.” All the spirits tasted during the weekend are made with locally sourced ingredients, from alcohol distilled from grapes to the addition of herbs native to the area. As a result, the spirits distilled on the Central Coast taste unique to the area. “It’s just been a great opportunity for the public to come out and check out what we’re doing,” continued Bergh. “A lot of people know about the wine industry here. That’s what a lot of people come for, and we have a pretty nice craft brewing scene too, and we want people to know about the distilling scene now because it’s really growing here.”

NATURE & WILDLIFE

Milkweed and Monarchs: Why They Matter?

R

By FRANCIE KELLEY Guest Columnist

emember when you were a child on the playground at school, and each spring, a delightful fluttering of orange wings would catch your eye? Or perhaps you had a classroom science project where the teacher brought in a plant with itty-bitty white spots on the leaves that turned out to be eggs, which soon turned into ittybitty caterpillars, which ate just about all the leaves off the plant and before you knew it, they were 2,500 times their initial body size. Then a very plump caterpillar covered itself in a celadon green ooze, and five minutes later, where there had been a caterpillar, there was now a chrysalis. Then you waited and waited until one day, about two weeks later, the chrysalis became black as night and soon completely transparent. It was as if you were looking through a tiny window, seeing the orange and black wings of a monarch butterfly (danaus plexippus). Within a few minutes, she eclosed (came out of her chrysalis). Metamorphosis had taken place — nature’s magic. After a few hours, when the wings were dry, she was strong

You will see tall, large clumps of Woollypod milkweed scattered throughout pastures along the westside of 101 and plenty of narrowleaf next to roads and in fields throughout much of Atascadero. (Left) A monarch with narrow leaf milkweed Asclepias fascicularis. (Right) Photos by Francie Kelley

enough to fly. Outside, the teacher opened the net enclosure, you carefully extended your hand, the monarch stepped right onto it, you lifted your hand to the sky, and just like that, she flew away. I remember seeing monarchs in our garden, all around town, at school … everywhere. It was just part of spring. But sadly, we rarely see these beautiful little friends anymore. Renowned for the long-distance season migration and spectacular winter

gathering in Mexico and California, the monarch population has recently declined to dangerously low levels. In the 1990s, hundreds of millions of monarchs made the epic flight each year from the northern plains of the US and Canada to sites in the Oyamel fir forest in central Mexico. In the west, more than a million monarchs migrated to overwintering groves on the Central California coast, including Cambria, Los Osos, and Pismo Beach. Now the population decline in the east

is down 70 percent, while in California, the decline is 95 percent due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and drought severity and frequency. So, why you ask, does this matter to Astascaderans? Because in many areas of Atascadero, on hillsides, in pastures, along roads, and freeways, there is a surprising amount of milkweed growing wild. Yes, milkweed, the only food that monarch caterpillars can eat. The only plant on which a monarch will lay its eggs. The monarch’s host plant. I’m delighted to report that there is monarch activity in Atascadero, albeit very small. Here’s where you come in. You can help the monarch make a comeback by not mowing or spraying milkweed. Milkweed begins to appear as early as March and lasts well into September when it goes to seed. Toward the end of its season, pods form, dry, then burst, sending seeds away like dandelion fluff that become new plants in the spring. The old plants die back in the winter and re-emerge in the spring, ready for a new generation of monarchs. Providing milkweed is one of the most significant actions you can take to support monarch butterfly populations. You can buy/order native milkweed from local nurseries such as Bay Laurel and

Los Osos Valley Nursery (buy from local nurseries to ensure that plants have not been sprayed with systemic insecticides). Or you can simply watch the native milkweed flourish all around the area by not mowing or spraying the plants. If you do buy milkweed from nurseries, only buy native milkweed; never tropical milkweed. (that’s a story for another article). The two types of milkweed that I’ve seen here are narrow leaf (Asclepias fascicularis) and woollypod (Asclepias eriocarpa). See photos. The other important way to help monarchs is to plant pollinators and nectar plants because they feed on nectar from many flowers, not just milkweed. As a valuable pollinators, monarchs pollinate many plants, fruits, and vegetables, which is important to the survival of gardens, crops, and orchards. Monarch butterflies are remarkable creatures … there is so much more I could share, but for now, learn more by visiting: xerces.org/pollinator-conservation. With your interest and help, perhaps once again we will see the return of the mighty monarch to Atascadero. You will see tall, large clumps of Woollypod milkweed scattered throughout pastures along the westside of 101 and plenty of narrowleaf next to roads and in fields throughout much of Atascadero.

Vandenberg Horse Finds New Home at Redwings Sanctuary Tickets now on sale for Redwings block party on Sept. 18 By CAMILLE DeVAUL

PASO ROBLES — Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Paso Robles gained a new resident last week. Buck comes to Redwings after serving 12 years on the United States Air Force patrol team. Four horses retired from the patrol team last Tuesday from Vandenberg Space Force Base, which held a retirement ceremony for the patrol horses. Buck plans to spend his retirement at Redwings’ new location on Union Road in Paso Robles, where they have 141 acres of pasture. “I think he is going to like Redwings,” said Redwings Board Member and Development Officer Linelle Soxman. According to Soxman, Buck is adjusting incred-

he can be in a nice big pasture and just enjoy life.” Redwings Horse Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization that began in Carmel over 30 years ago before making its way to Lockwood and now its newest location closer to town in Paso Robles.

They began with a mission to end the abuse of horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, and burros through rescue and foster care. The sanctuary is currently home to 78 horses, and since its move to their Union Road location, the nonprofit has adopted out 30 horses to new homes and gained more volunteers. On Sept. 18, Redwings will be celebrating their 31st anniversary with a block party. There will be tours of the property, and food, beer, and wine will be available. There will also be live music from Monte Mills and The Lucky Horseshoe Band, shaved ice from Paradise Shaved Ice, a live auction, photo booth, and lots of fun games for the family. Tickets are on sale now for the block party. Proceeds from the party go towards supporting medical care and feeding for the horses for the year.

LOCAL NEWS KRISTIN SMART TRIAL

Dog Handlers Testify in Court for Kristin Smart Murder Trial

The court is dark until Wednesday, August 24 By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Witnesses testifying in the Kristin Smart murder trial have gone from a steady streak of former Cal Poly students to now dog handlers who were involved early in the case’s investigation. After trial testimonies wrapped up on Tuesday, Aug. 16, Judge Jennifer O’Keefe announced court would be dark until next Wednesday, Aug. 24. 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. Much of week five, which started on Monday, in the trial revolved around questioning dog handlers who searched a portion of the Cal Poly campus and a dorm building for human remains early in the investigation.

Dog handler Adela Morris testifies on the witness stand for a second day Tuesday, Aug. 16. Pool Photos NBC Dateline

Adela Morris Adela Morris was one of the first handlers to bring her dogs in to search for Kristin Smart in June 1996. She has more than 30 years of experience training dogs to detect the smell of human remains. Morris and her dog Cholla searched the first floor of the Santa Lucia dorm building. They conducted a blind search, meaning the handler was not told what she was specifically looking for or where. She testified she let Cholla off leash, and the dog proceeded to alert to Paul’s dorm room door. Once inside, Cholla alerted multiple times to a mattress in the room. Morris searched with a second dog which she says alerted to the same area in the same room.

Dog handler Wayne Behrens testifies, about a 1996 search he did at the Cal Poly dorms with his dog, Sierra.

On Tuesday, Morris again took the stand to continue her testimony. Jurors submitted questions for Morris to be asked throughout her testimony. One of the jurors asked how long the scent of a cadaver stays detectable to dogs. Ultimately, Morris said she couldn’t answer the question accurately. Morris continued testimony with questioning from all three attorneys. She answered questions pertaining to what the dogs are able to detect or where the scents come from and how long they may linger and how handlers interpret their dogs’ signals. Ruben Flores’ attorney, Harold Mesick, asked Morris how many cadavers her team had actually found to which she said the team itself had located only one body but helped narrow down a

search area in others. Wayne Behrens Following Morris was a second dog handler who also searched the dorms and Cal Poly campus for Kristin Smart in June 1996. Wayne Behrens searched the area with his dog Sierra. San Luis Obispo County Deputy District Attorney Christopher Peuvrelle questioned Behrens about his certification process. Behrens said the Office of Emergency Services sets the standards and an organization called CARDA (California Rescue Dog Association) certifies the dogs. Behrens testified that he and Sierra conducted a blind search near the Santa Lucia dorm. He testified that Sierra

CALIFONIA MID-STATE FAIR

California Mid-State Fair Proves Successful

The 2023 California Mid-State Fair runs July 19-30, 2023 STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — The 76th annual California Mid-State Fair returned for 12 full days of fun July 20-31 with a theme of “Full Steam Ahead!” In addition to the usual attractions of 4-H and FFA exhibitors, carnival rides, exhibits, food, shopping, and live music — the Fair was also highlighted by a new dance area called La Cantina and saw the actual on-site build of a tiny home that was donated to Operation WEBS. CEO Colleen Bojorquez said, “We are absolutely thrilled with the results of the Fair. The staff and board worked extremely hard to bring back a 100 percent normal Fair and we feel we accomplished that. The response from the community with the large turnout was overwhelming and proved people were ready to come experience one of the great traditions of San Luis Obispo County. For us, seeing so many smiling faces was a dream come true.” LIVESTOCK AUCTIONS Revenue from the 2022 livestock auctions raised $2,469,341 on 731 animals (unofficial). Of that, $667,250 came from the Replacement Heifer Sale and $1,802,091 came from the Junior Livestock Auction. Add-ons close Aug. 7, so auction totals will increase after Aug. 8. The total revenue raised is slightly greater than last year — a big testament to our community. MICHELOB ULTRA CONCERT SERIES

began alerting when she was near the dorm building and then alerted on the door outside of Paul’s dorm room. According to Behrens, Sierra alerted to the same bed as Morris’s dog, but at the time they were not aware of the other dog’s searches of the dorm. Under cross-examination with Paul Flores’ attorney, Robert Sanger, Behrens said Sierra was certified on June 7, 1996, and the search was conducted on June 29 that same year, but she had been certified in wilderness search since 1994 and had search experience before being certified as a cadaver dog. Since the two handlers drove to the site together, Sanger wanted to know how much of the case they discussed together prior to writing the report. Behrens said he was sure they discussed what they did as they traveled in the same car. Sanger asked Behrens if he found any human remains in the room and Behrens said no, confirming that Sierra just alerted to the mattress. 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.

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Jimmy Paulding can officially say he has won the District 4 San Luis Obispo County Supervisor seat, beating incumbent Lynn Compton, after the District 4 vote recount has been concluded. The manual recount of the ballots for the June 7 Statewide Direct Primary Election for the office of San Luis Obispo County District 4 Supervisor has officially concluded, according to the press release from the San Luis Obispo County Office of the Clerk-Recorder, Elaina Cano. District 4 covers Nipomo, Arroyo Grande, Huasna, Edna Valley, Santa Margarita Lake, and the Carrizo Plain. Under the supervision of the election official, a manual recount of the ballots was conducted at the request of Paso Robles resident Darcia Stebbens. According to

reports, Stebbens’ request was filed on behalf of Compton, who finished 639 votes behind Paulding in the final official election results, which were posted by the county on June 7. Under California elections code, the person requesting a recount has to pay for it. The recount process began on July 19 and was conducted publicly as required by law, with four to six observers each day of the recount from 9 a.m. to approximately 4:15 p.m. After 18 days, there were “zero discrepancies between the manual recount and the certified results,” according to Cano. There were 23 precincts and five mail ballot precincts, which had three separate counting groups, including polls, provisionals, and voteby-mail ballots that were manually tallied. In the end, each of the totals for the precincts and county groups, matched exactly to what the certified results depicted. Both the final recount and certified results were Paulding with 10,769 (52 percent of the vote) and Compton with 10,130 (48 percent).

Atascadero Pavement Rehabilitation Project to Cause Delays Residents on Cenegal Road, Corriente Road, and Balboa Road can expect delays starting Aug. 15 STAFF REPORT

ATA S CA D ER O — The City of Atascadero has announced work on the 2022 F-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project is progressing. Over the next two to three weeks, work will be taking place on multiple streets as part of the project which may result in delays for residents. The city recommends planning additional time when leaving or returning home. For residents in areas surrounding the streets listed below, it is recommended to use alternative routes if possible. For the week of Aug. 15, the

following are the construction activities taking place: • Cenegal Road (Laurel Road to west): Roadway paving beginning Monday, 8/15, continuing through Wednesday, 8/17. Cenegal Road will remain open for residents, but paving operations will result in significant delays. • Corriente Road (San Fernando Road to Santa Ana Road): Roadway paving beginning Wednesday, continuing through Thursday, 8/18. Roadway will remain open for residents, but those not living on Corriente Road are asked to use alternate routes during paving operations. • Balboa Road (San Fernando Road to Santa Ana Road): Roadway milling and base grading will commence Monday, 8/15, continuing throughout the week. The

contractor will provide traffic control, but delays of up to 20 minutes should be expected. F-14 project improvements consist of pavement rehabilitation for a total of 3.3 miles of roadway, including Ardilla Road between Balboa Road and the northern end, Balboa Road between Santa Ana Road and San Fernando Road, Cebada Road between Santa Ana Road and the southern end, Cenegal Road between Laurel Road and the previous western terminus, and Corriente Road between San Fernando Road and Santa Ana Road. Additional improvements include upgrading existing CMP storm drain pipes and other minor drainage improvements. These improvements are funded through the F-14 Sales Tax Measure, which was passed by the community in 2014. Changeable message boards

(CMS) will be placed at visible locations to each roadway and will be kept updated with pertinent information regarding the schedule. During pavement rehabilitation, motorists are encouraged to pay close attention to the traffic signage and plan for extra time if travel through the area is necessary. Please drive carefully through the work zones and be considerate of both other drivers and workers. Large trucks, trailers, and recreational vehicles should use alternative routes where possible.

PASO ROBLES

Paso Robles to Hold Cannabis Forum and Public Hearing The City of Paso Robles is seeking community feedback on possible expansion of cannabis regulations. A community forum is planned for Thursday, Aug. 18, at 6 p.m. in the City Council chamber at 1000 Spring Street, and a Resident Survey is available now. The community forum is part of the City Council’s ongoing evaluation of establishing a cannabis governance framework, including the potential legalization of retail cannabis storefronts. City staff and the city’s cannabis consultant will provide a presentation on the status of the cannabis industry and include a discussion on the potential expansion of cannabis-related businesses within the city. The city is asking residents to give input via an online survey regarding cannabis business types, where cannabis businesses should be located, and preferences on buffers from sensitive

uses. The survey is live now and will remain open until Sept. 5. The community forum and survey follow the direction provided by the City Council at its July 19 meeting. During the meeting, the City Council reaffirmed its desire to advance the development of the cannabis governance framework discussion and approved the community outreach plan. An additional public hearing will be held during the planning commission meeting on Aug. 23 to consider recommending a zone text amendment to the City Council, which amends Chapter 21.33 of Article IIA of Title 21 of the El Paso de Robles Municipal Code regarding commercial cannabis use. The amendments establish that delivery-only commercial cannabis may be a permitted use subject to the review and approval of a conditional use permit within the Riverside Corridor (RC) and the C-3 district. A delivery-only commercial cannabis business will be prohibited throughout all other zones in the city.

The maximum number of permits available will be subject to Council approval. Additionally, the amendments will impose certain requirements, operational restrictions, and standards on all permitted delivery-only cannabis businesses. All other commercial cannabis uses, such as commercial cultivation, manufacturing, testing, distribution, transportation, and retail, are still prohibited within the city. The planning commission’s public hearing is scheduled for Aug. 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber, 1000 Spring Street, Paso Robles. The City of Paso Robles is holding hybrid Planning Commission meetings. The public has the option to attend the meeting in person or to participate remotely, pursuant to AB 361, which allows for a deviation of the Ralph M. Brown Act’s standard teleconference requirements. Residents can participate in the forum in person or follow along at pricity.com/youtube and call in to (805) 865-7276 to give public comment during the meeting.

ATASCADERO

Volunteers Needed for Atascadero Business Walk The Atascadero Chamber of Commerce is hitting the streets to learn about issues facing the local business community. The Chamber will conduct a Business Walk from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Sep. 28. The goal is to recruit 100 volunteers, grouped in teams of two, to visit 10 businesses each so that a total of 500 businesses are visited. Asking just a few questions to managers and owners will allow the Chamber staff to learn of any challenges and opportunities confronting businesses, to plan future programs, and to add or revise resources that will help businesses flourish. “This event will help us learn what’s on the minds of our business community,” said Director of Membership Julie Matthews. “We’re looking for community volunteers to join the Atascadero Chamber team as we canvas the city to check in on businesses and see how we can better

PRPD Arrest Burglary Suspect Following Vehicle Pursuit The investigation is ongoing; it is believed there are two outstanding suspects from the burglary STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — Following a vehicle pursuit, Paso Robles Police were able to arrest a suspect involved in an early morning robbery on Monday, Aug. 15. This morning around 3 a.m., the Paso Robles Police were dispatched to Tobacco Mart in the Woodland Plaza for a report of a burglary in progress. Officers arrived on scene and immediately saw the suspects getting into a white BMW. Officers attempted a traffic stop and the vehicle fled southbound US 101 from Spring Street in the wrong lane of traffic. A vehicle traveling northbound US 101 swerved away from the suspect to avoid a head on collision, which caused the driver to crash. Officers paralleled the vehicle in the

southbound lanes and exited Ramada Drive. The vehicle drove towards Trailer Barn and entered the Salinas River. The vehicle got stuck in the sand and the occupants fled on foot. A PRPD officer immediately deployed its department drone and located one of the suspects in the riverbed. Demaura Grayson, 19, from Fontana, was located and arrested. It was determined he was the driver of the vehicle and responsible for the burglary. Deputies from SLOSO and officers from the CHP and Atascadero PD responded to assist in locating the other occupants. While continuing to search the area, a PRPD sergeant located a vehicle traveling on Santa Ysabel Road, near Santa Ysabel Ranch at a high rate of speed. The vehicle was stopped, and the occupants were determined to be involved in the burglary. The driver, Brenden Clayton, 26, from Carson, and the passenger, Kayla Brig-

serve them. Each volunteer team will conduct a brief interview of four simple questions. This is a great chance to meet and network with businesses in Atascadero.” The Business Walk will help conclude the “Together, We Will Move Atascadero Forward” Membership Drive. The campaign runs through Sep. 30 and aims to enhance support of the Atascadero businesses community by increasing chamber membership. Josh Cross, Chamber President, and CEO said, “We’re looking for volunteers who want to celebrate Atascadero and help ‘take the pulse’ of our business community to communicate successes and obstacles in doing business in Atascadero.” The Chamber will assemble the responses to generate a report that local decision-makers can use to help strengthen local businesses. Sign up to volunteer or find additional details at atascaderochamber. org. Contact Julie Matthews at (805) 466-2044 or julie@atascaderochamber.org for specific questions.

DEMAURA GRAYSON ges, 20, from Compton, were both arrested. This investigation is ongoing and anyone with further information is asked to contact the PRPD. It is believed, there are two outstanding suspects from the burglary.

Hortillosa was sentenced to 120 years to life, plus three years and eight months, in state prison for his conviction STAFF REPORT

TODD HORTILLOSA

PISMO BEACH — San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow announced on Aug. 15 that Todd Hortillosa (44) of Pismo Beach has been sentenced to 120 years to life, plus three years and eight months, in state prison for his conviction on 10 counts of sex crimes against three children occurring over a nine-year period. At the jury trial each of the three survivors, now aged 23, 14 and 11, testified to the prolonged sexual abuse inflicted by Hortillosa. The sexual abuse escalated with each victim, but ultimately stopped after it was reported to a teacher by a then 11-year-old survivor. “We applaud the courage of these young victims to report and testify about what the defendant did to them and we

thank the jury for providing justice for these three young survivors,” said Dow. “This lengthy sentence amply reflects the horrific betrayal of trust and devastating effects of Mr. Hortillosa’s crimes. We will continue do everything within our power to hold child predators accountable to the maximum extent possible.” The case was investigated by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office with the aid of the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation. Sheriff ’s Detective James Wyett and District Attorney’s Office Investigator Rosalba Denny were the primary investigators. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Danielle Baker who is assigned to the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Prosecution Unit.

EARL E. YATES 1929 – 2022

F

ormer Atascadero resident Earl Everett Yates passed away at home on July 24, 2022. He was born in Hutchinson, Minnesota, on August 3, 1929, 4th child of Eugene William Carter and Gladys Meryl Corey. Earl was given the last name of his stepfather Barton Vermont Yates after Gladys divorced Eugene and later remarried Barton in 1933. The Yates family moved to Atascadero, California, around 1935 or 1936, and Earl attended school at the old schoolhouse near Lewis Ave; and went to Atascadero High School but dropped out after 10th grade to work to help support his family. He worked with his stepfather painting houses around the Atascadero, Santa Margarita, Templeton, and

Paso Robles areas. In 1947 Earl began working as a welder and mechanic for George Foraker at Atascadero Welding and Fabricating Engineers and also began racing an old “jalopy” coupe on weekends at the old dirt track at the Paso Robles Fairgrounds, as well as other Central California dirt tracks in Santa Maria, Bakersfield, and others in the area. Earl went to work for Bill Peck at the “La Moda” theater as a projectionist. After a fire that burned the theater, Mr. Peck changed the building to become a bowling alley, and Earl was employed as equipment maintenance man and counterman. Earl met Donna Lorraine Tetherow, and they were married in July 1952. They purchased a small house that was located at what was then the end of Balboa Road, where their first child, Pamela Rae, was born in May of 1953. Next came son Earl Daniel in Jan 1956, and son Richard Thomas was born in Nov 1958. When Atascadero Speedway was built, Earl raced his number 70A Plymouth sedan as a hobby racer up until around 1961 while being sponsored by Atascadero Bowl. Earl worked for Paula Equipment in Paso Robles as a mechanic and maintenance man on tractors and farm equipment for several years before finally landing a Civil Service position at Camp Roberts working on Jeeps and trucks for the U.S. Army. When the U.S. Army ceased operations at Camp Roberts in 1970, Earl was offered a maintenance position at Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona. The family relocated to Yuma, Arizona and Earl worked at MCAS Yuma for over six years before he got the opportunity to get out of the desert heat and relocate to the much cooler state of Washington, where he was employed as a facility maintenance man at Sand Point Naval Station on Lake Washington, near Seattle.

JUDITH A. GIMBY 1941 – 2022

udith Ann Gimby of Paso Robles, California, passed away peacefully on July 28, 2022. Judy was born to David and Lou Biehl in Oklahoma on August 30, 1941. She attended High School in Van Nuys. Judy met Gary Gordon Gimby in the 1960s, and the couple were married on October 23, 1964, in Fullerton, California. Gary and Judy Gimby

and her hardships throughout her life. Anita was a “Centurion” and celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends this past April. She anticipated this milestone birthday with joy and excitement and was thrilled to share and reminisce over her accomplishments throughout the century. She had seen more changes in the world in her lifetime than most anyone will ever see. Her pride and joy were her two sons, Neil and Robert Heely. She is survived by Neil Heely from Hatfield, AR, Robert ( Jill) Heely from Paso Robles, CA, and is also survived by her grandchildren: Brant (Emily) Heely from Walnut Creek, CA, Eric (Maggie) Heely from Louisville, KY, and Kaitlin and Madison Heely from Paso Robles, CA. She was also very proud of her four great-grandchildren: Rori and Knox Heely from Louisville, KY, Jack Heely from Walnut Creek, CA, and Cody Alexander from Hatfield, AR. She will be missed dearly by all her family. She was preceded in death by her husband Ray Heely in 1995. As Anita wished, there will be no service, and in lieu of flowers, the family asks that you think of kindness and donate to a veterans charity. You may consider donating in Ray and Anita’s name to: Honor Flight of the Central Coast, P.O. Box 1750, Paso Robles, CA 93447, or Mighty Oaks Foundation at www.mightyoaksprograms.org.

After Earl retired from Federal Civil Service in 1986, he and his wife Donna spent about four years as winter visitors to Mesa, Arizona, where his eldest son was living. They decided to sell their Washington home and move to the mountains of Northern Arizona, and in 1992, they settled down in the small community of Clear Creek Pines near Happy Jack, AZ, in a cabin on an acre of pine, juniper, and oaks. While Earl was working at Sand Point, he was given the nickname Mr. Fix-it because he could tackle any repair work and always get the job done right. In retirement, he, with the help of his sons, built a 1600 sq ft workshop, and many of his neighbors came to him for advice and/or help to fix whatever needed fixing. Several of his neighbors got together and had a sign made for his shop that said “Yates Hardware” because he always seemed to have the nuts, bolts, screws, nails, plumbing, or electrical parts that they needed without the 70-mile round trip to the nearest hardware store in Winslow, Arizona. Earl was preceded in death by his eldest brother William (Bill) V. Yates, his daughter Pamela, his parents Eugene Carter and Gladys Yates, his stepfather Barton Yates, his youngest son Richard Yates, Donna Yates, his wife of 65 years, his older brother Allon F. Carter, and his sister Adrienne Hoke. He is survived by his eldest son Earl D. Yates. After Donna passed away, Earl left the cabin in Clear Creek Pines and moved in with his son in Mesa, Arizona, where he lived until stage 4 lung cancer took him away. There will be no services. Earl’s last wishes were to donate his body for medical research, and he was delivered to Research For Life in Phoenix, Arizona. Earl’s remains will be cremated and returned to his son Earl Daniel Yates to spread his ashes as requested.

LANCE SIMMENS COMMENTARY

From the Left

L

isten, do you want to know a secret? — Lennon and McCartney. One of my biggest thrills as a young public servant was gaining a Top Secret security clearance as a senior staffer on the U.S. Senate Budget Committee. I felt a special level of gravitas upon my shoulders as I went about helping to fashion legislative policy positions that would advance the security and welfare of the nation’s citizens. I shall never forget the grilling I went through by the Defense Intelligence Agency in a nondescript government-issue furnished office at the D.C. Navy Yard, apparently designed to shake one’s confidence in their own qualification for such an honor. It was 1981, the beginning of the Reagan era, and a time when admitting you smoked pot in college might eliminate your bid to have access to information that would sufficiently prepare you to brief your boss, a United States senator, on either international affairs or defense spending issues during the closing chapter of the Cold War. That sense of patriotism and commitment to our nation bound Congressional staffers and senior level governmental officials together, regardless of political and/or ideological beliefs, into a select fraternity of public servants whose job was to move the nation forward and protect American citizens. It was and should still be the epitome of dedication to this democratic experiment that apparently is under attack by a sickening wave of authoritarianism. Look, this should not be an issue at all. If someone, anyone,

The 44th Annual Colony Tea

ear Editor, The 44th annual Colony Tea, hosted by Quota of Atascadero each year, is the "kick-off " event for the weeklong celebration of the rich history of Atascadero, Colony Days. It is open to anyone 55 years or older who has lived in Atascadero for at least 40 years and will be held this year on Sunday, September 25. If you would like to attend the tea, contact me, Myrna Wood

breaks the law, they should be held accountable and abide by the dictum "if you do the crime you must do the time." Regardless of one’s position in life, ability to pay for a top-rate defense, ignorance of the law, or popularity, if found guilty you should own up and accept the consequences of your actions. Thus, the current spectacle confronting the 45th president of the United States over an abuse of the responsibilities entrusted to him by the Electoral College that specifically prohibit confiscation, desecration, or possible sharing of the most important documents outlining information that might lead to extended violence, death and destruction, and/or benefit either his own financial or power fantasies or embolden actual or potential enemies of the State is the height of betrayal. While the verdict is not yet out, the dubious and suspicious circumstances surrounding why documents that represent the highest levels of national security should first and foremost never left the secure confines of the White House and second should have been surrendered to federal officials when requested. That is the law. That over a year and a half after the Capitol insurrection and Donald Trump’s removal from the White House have passed with no action on this matter despite strenuous efforts by law enforcement agencies of the federal government to secure their surrender, short of a warrant for their seizure, is simply unfathomable. The incontrovertible facts are quite simply that any efforts to circumvent any of three criminal statutes are in play here: you may not remove certain items from any public office (max. 3 years in prison); you must deliver documents to an officer of the United States when requested (max. 10 years in prison); you may not conceal or destroy documents to hinder an investigation (max. 20 years in prison). The legal standard employed in determining guilt is criminal intent. For those who insist on

whataboutisms, i.e., "well, what about Hillary Clinton’s emails?', an investigation concluded in 2019 found “no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.” It should also be noted that Clinton cooperated with the investigation and investigators and hence there was no need for the issuance of a subpoena or for executing a search warrant. At a time when various investigations are underway involving Trump in New York and Georgia, social media is being utilized to instigate outright violence, defunding of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is being advanced by Republican congressional leaders, active chats about a potential “civil war” are gaining currency in a world struggling with conspiracies and conspiracy-theorists, inglorious portrayals of the deep administrative state continue to be propagated, and distrust of government institutions, including federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies are being questioned, we stand at a dangerous inflection point in our nation’s history. How we as a society respond to this crisis in confidence in our democratic system will largely dictate the world we leave to future generations. Those who wish to capitalize on whatever fortunes or disasters that may seem apparent from a political calculus, which under the rosiest scenario will most assuredly be a short-term deflection rather than a long-term solution, will carry the shame of structurally denigrating the advances we have made in democratic governance. Democracy is messy, but it works. Winston Churchill captured the essence of democracy when he declared “it is the worst form of government — except for all the others that have been tried.” Lance Simmens is an independent columnist, he along with Don Schmitz write a bi-weekly column on national topics from the perspective of their political leanings.

DON SCHMITZ COMMENTARY

From the Right

L

ady Justice is blind and balanced, but the FBI and DOJ appear neither. This column isn’t about the latest Trump investigation, and whether the FBI should have descended on his home. Pundits are endlessly pontificating already on both sides of the aisle, speaking with great authority about whether Trump committed felonies, or is the victim of a weaponized federal law enforcement system. Truth of the matter is, both might be true. The DOJ is investigating whether he took top secret documents breaking the law, but as president he had absolute authority to declassify anything he wished, which is part of the swirling debate. I raise that to provide context; compared to the wild accusations of treason and collusion with Russia to sway the 2016 election, this pales in comparison. Remember the breathless accusations, and how the Trump campaign was spied upon before and after the election by the FBI? FBI assistant director Peter Strzok worked on the Mueller investigation, until he was fired when his text messages to his mistress surfaced stating “We’ll stop Trump” from being president, and that they had an “insurance policy” if he was elected. FBI Director James Comey admitted under oath to the senate Judiciary Committee, he had leaked “official FBI records” to reporters, memos he kept at his home safe. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court surveillance warrants the FBI submitted to spy on Trump organization were found by the inspector general

to be rife with “factual misstatements and omissions”. FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty to altering documents to obtain the FISA warrants, a felony. He was given probation. Rep Adam Schiff assured us in 2018 that the “FBI and DOJ did not ‘abuse’ the FISA process … ,” but in fact they did, and admitted it when caught. 14 FBI officials were investigated, censured, suspended, or fired. Quintessential law enforcement malfeasance. Always unacceptable, frightening when it’s a powerful federal agency, stunning when directed at the presidency. This stands in stark contrast to the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton emails which she illegally kept on her private server, including Top Secret/Special Access documents, to which “hostile actors” gained access. In their decision not to recommend prosecution of presidential candidate Clinton, it was noted that it could be concluded that she was in violation of 18 U.S. Code 1924 “clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information,” precisely what is being contemplated as a charge against potential candidate Trump. Clinton deleted 33,000 emails after receiving a subpoena, claiming they were “personal” emails, destroyed phones and laptops. Common citizens would be charged with obstruction of justice for such actions. It is contemplated that Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice for not turning over the files he kept in his home, yet there is no legal difference between electronic and paper government documents. We never witnessed the spectacle of FBI agents raiding the Clinton home, nor should we have, but the pictures from Mar a Lago are disturbing, and unprecedented. This discussion isn’t about moral relativity, the Clintons or the Trumps. It is about whether our FBI and DOJ have become partisan and are tipping the scales in the political arena,

a dagger at the heart of a free republic. There is no question that the FBI acted immorally during the Trump investigations before and after the 2016 election. Regardless, despite the Mueller investigation concluding no laws were broken by the Trump campaign, House Democrats voted to impeach, though the Senate acquitted him. They impeached him again after he had lost re-election, with the clear intent of precluding him from ever running again. Again he was acquitted by the Senate. Now they are trying to ascribe to Trump legal responsibility to the dark day of Jan. 6. The Democrats are tenacious, frustrated with Attorney General Merrick Garland for not filing charges against Trump, and have publicly demanded he do so. Intense pressure from the politically powerful is raining down on the FBI and DOJ. I grew up lionizing the FBI, founded in 1908 in part to combat corrupt local politicians and police forces. We need them for so many reasons, including corrupt federal leaders. The FBI is not above reproach and scrutiny, however. FBI director Edgar Hoover, whose name is on the FBI headquarters building, purportedly engaged in illegal wiretaps, burglaries, and forged documents. He targeted Martin Luther King and President John F. Kennedy, blackmailing them over their adultery. On the heels of all of this, can reasonable liberals understand the trepidation of conservatives? In the 1970s and during the Trump administration, the FBI abused its substantial powers. We aren’t a “banana republic”, and the FBI aren’t “gestapo,” but repeated efforts to overtly impede a political figure from running for office with a double standard application of the law and procedures is deeply disconcerting.

ton, Lois Lerner, Eric Holder and Chuck Schumer would all be facing trials. Progressives do not support the right of free speech, the 2nd Amendment and actively subvert the constitution by saying it was just a work of slave holding white European colonists while the mere fact that the Trump people questioned an election like Gore and Hilary Clinton did as an act of insurgency. This is not a blind spot or something that they just have overlooked. This is an intentional act to suppress freedom and remake

society in their image regardless of the wishes of the rest of society. They seek to change the culture and influence politics with their insincere and deceptive art. The next time an art project comes up for review I sincerely hope that city officials recognize that if people propose politically motivated art that is delivered under false pretenses that is actually counter productive to its stated goals that there is enough moral outrage over the hypocrisy to stop it dead in its tracks.

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 15-day 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.

ear Readers, We live on approximately 6 acres in a rocky, wooded area on the west side of Atascadero. Little did we know how important weed-eating would become this year, of all the 37 years we’ve lived here. On the back of the property, we gave permission to a small family to live in their trailer, using an RV hook-up we had developed for our family visitors with RVs, but last Saturday a fire destroyed their home and everything they owned. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, although the family’s pet dog did not survive, leaving great emotional injury to all of them. A compassionate fireman did retrieve the dog and friends took the dog to El Camino Animal Hospital for cremation so that the family can have a proper burial when the time is right for them. As soon as word got out about

t the tender age of 22, I left a cowboy job paying $650 a month to take a job as a field editor with a major livestock newspaper. I was hired in October to work ring at purebred auctions, take photos, write sale reports and sell advertising, which I hated and was not good at. I couldn’t sell tofu lasagna to a starving vegan. My territory included southern California, Arizona, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada. I was a contract worker, which meant I got 33 percent of all my ad sales, but I had to pay all my own expenses. My two best accounts were an auction yard and the 26 Bar Ranch in Arizona. That’s how I found myself over Thanksgiving weekend in Stanfield, Arizona, at a cocktail party standing 10 feet away from The Duke himself, John Wayne. I’ve met a lot of personalities at cattle sales over the years. I had a great conversation with

Mel Gibson, traveled with Mrs. David Rockefeller, worked Wayne Newton’s Arab horse sale, and met dozens of professional athletes whose financial advisors had told them what a great tax write-off purebred livestock was. But the highlight was attending John Wayne’s Hereford Sale for several years. Adding to the special feeling was that we always stayed at a resort called Francisco Grande, which had been a Spring Training camp for the San Francisco Giants. Keep in mind this was only the second sale I’d attended, so I assumed this was what it was going to feel like being a field editor. When you mentioned the name 26 Bar, everyone thought of The Duke, but he had a partner in Louis Johnson, who was one of the shrewdest people I’ve ever met. Legend has it that The Duke had been investing in cotton farms, but everyone he partnered up with took him to the cleaners, so he asked around, “Who is the best cotton farmer in Arizona?” The name Louis Johnson kept popping up, so he partnered up with Louis on farming a huge feedlot that was named the Red

River Feedlot after one of The Duke’s biggest movies, and a purebred Hereford operation that quickly became one of the most prominent and successful in history. Their annual bull sale topped the list of having the highest sale average in the country. I gotta admit I was not blown away by my first impression of The Duke. He always seemed to be holding a cocktail glass (which I never saw him drink from), he had undershot heels on his boots that made him walk a little funny and he wore high water pants. But the more I observed The Duke, the more I felt sorry for him because everybody wanted a piece of him whether it was an autograph or a photo with him after the sale. The sale was held in a huge quonset hut with 26 Bar painted all over it. The Duke stayed on the auction block for the entirety of the sale and I once asked my friend Skinner Hardy what it felt like to be auctioneering with John Wayne looking over your shoulder? Skinner admitted that it was a bit intimidating ... and I’ve never known Skinner to be intimidated by anything or anybody. Louis Johnson was a great

This week I was flipping through an old magazine when I saw an article about pumpkins. I love pumpkins and all they represent, like pies, breads, sweet and sour preserves, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and fall. The article suggested that this year when you carve your pumpkin, save the seeds for a healthy snack. Following are the instructions they gave for preparing the seeds to eat. Scoop out the center mass and separate the seeds from the pulp by running the mass under cool water over a colander, letting the seeds fall into the colander and discarding the pulp. Leave the seeds out to dry overnight or roast them right away. To dry, spread them evenly on a cookie sheet. To roast, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Mix seasoning ingredients with the

the fire and the family’s loss, community members began offering support, and a “go fund me” account was established. If you would like to help, go to the “James Family” account. You will see the words “a family devastated by a house fire.” The account was organized by Stephanie Brown. Any amount will help grow the fund and remember that they lost everything. I must commend the Atascadero Fire Department for its prompt and professional action. They told us that because of all the weed eating we had done, they were able to contain the fire and keep it from spreading beyond the trailer’s site. Please be sure to check with your local fire department for weed eating requirements pertaining to your own property. It’s never too late to be fire safe!

hat comes to mind when you hear the word water? I imagine hydration, lakes, rivers, oceans, streams, abundance, vitality, life force, fish, kayaking, surfing, bathing, cooling, and warming. Our bodies require water for life. Water is a primary element of our daily use. We use water upon waking and right before going to sleep. Consider the many ways you use water daily, from washing dishes, clothes, and your body, to watering plants, crops, pets, and ourselves, to filling up pools, hot tubs, and more. Water is a sacred

gift from the planet upon which we live and ultimately a gift from the Source of all creation. How often do we take the time to bless this life-sustaining resource that is such a prominent and necessary part of our lives? Japanese businessman, author, and pseudo-scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto claimed that human consciousness could affect the molecular structure of water. He was curious what would happen to water exposed to beautiful classical music and words of affirmation. After the exposure, he froze the water and viewed the ice crystals formed under a microscope. He found that water exposed to Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin produced beautiful hexagonal crystals. In contrast, water exposed to heavy metal music made malformed and fragmented crystals at best. One family in Japan heard

about his studies in America and was inspired to experiment on their own. They took two jars, placed water and rice in each, then taped a piece of paper with the word thank you written on it to one jar and the words you fool on the other. Their entire family participated in the experiment. Every day for thirty days, they approached each jar and said, “Thank you,” to one and, “You fool,” to the other. As a result, the rice in the thank you jar fermented slightly with a pale-yellow color, and the rice in the fool jar rotted and turned black. We, humans, are made up of 70 percent water. So, imagine how the words we speak affect our bodies. Today is a perfect day to transform negative thoughts and words, complaints, and upsets into love and joy. Here are some high-vibration words for you to speak aloud and

seeds and spread seeds evenly on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Roast for 8-10 minutes, checking and stirring every 3 minutes. Here are a couple of seasoning ideas: Coconut and Sugar 1 cup pumpkin seeds 1 tablespoon coconut oil 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon finely shredded coconut 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon salt Ginger and Sesame 1 cup pumpkin seeds 1 teaspoon melted coconut oil 1⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil 1⁄2 teaspoon sesame seeds 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger Mix the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and then combine with the seeds before roasting.

businessman and marketeer but he wasn’t the only person responsible for the success of 26 Bar. When you arrived at the sale sight all the bulls were tied up like they were at Denver or Fort Worth and every animal was beautifully groomed with their horns and hooves polished to a bright luster. And keep in mind most of these bulls were range bulls, not herd sires. The man responsible for how perfect all the bulls looked was Marvin Meek, who was the 26 Bar herdsman for 20 years. Marvin worked his magic on all livestock. He trained some of the best cowdogs I’ve ever seen, was a bonafide, surefire cowboy and possessed an ability to prepare cattle for sale that was unmatched. I remember walking the outdoor stalls at 26 Bar with a friend who looked at the beautiful lineup of bulls and uttered these timeless words I’ve never forgotten: “Fat is always the prettiest color.” To me, Marvin Meek will always be the real John Wayne.

I’m radiant, vibrant, and glowing. I move my body as often as I can. I hold myself in the highest esteem and take excellent care of me. I set healthy boundaries and know when to say no. My self-talk is positive, proactive, and rich. I put outfits together that make me feel great. I give myself ample time to rest, rejuvenate and recharge. I practice my practice and walk my talk.

Guests, Animals Get Wild About Art

Charles Paddock Zoo gives its denizens a chance to let their creativity shine By BLAKE ASHLEY FRINO-GERL

ATASCADERO — On Aug. 6, The Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero gave the opportunity for guests to come and observe animal residents create abstract art. In addition, zoo visitors were able to do their own arts and crafts, while local artists showcased their artwork for sale and provided demonstrations and workshops in which guests were able to learn drawing and painting techniques. According to Atascadero Deputy City Manager Terrie Banish, the annual event, which is not a fundraiser nor a city-sponsored event since Atascadero owns the zoo, was included in the admission fee. Flavia Parotti, one of the zookeepers, said the event began five years ago — despite

Animal artists this year included a desert tortoise, binterongs, mongoose lemurs, meerkats, a ball python, and a hedgehog. All sales earned from animal residents’ paintings go to the Charles Paddock Zoo. In addition, according to Parotti, one student artist put forth all her sale proceeds going to the zoo. Local artists included in the event were Central Coast Seaweed Pressing, Hambly Farms, Amandalee Design, and Turquoise Giraffe, who crocheted specific animals to correlate with the zoo residents.

CAMMI VELCI CONTINUED FROM A1

[they] are spreading the information on fentanyl awareness.” Velci said that one of the main things she’s learned is the importance of using the right language while speaking about the fentanyl epidemic. And that it’s important to know the difference between an overdose and poisoning. “Using the correct language breaks the stigma,” said Velci about how people talk about fentanyl. “My son was a firsttime self-medicater. It didn’t make sense to me when I got the information that he died. He overdosed on a pill. I looked

at that info, and I said, ‘that’s impossible for someone to overdose on one pill.’ It is impossible, I mean unless it’s fentanyl. So, it’s not an overdose. My son didn’t take a bunch of real pharmaceutical Percocet; he took what he thought was pharmaceutical Percocet. One, which nobody is going to overdose on one real Percocet, and he died. So that is a poisoning.” Emilio Velci passed away in his home on the evening of March 8, 2020, when he ingested a pill allegedly sold to him by Timothy Wolfe (24) of Paso Robles. Emilio thought the pill was pharmaceutical-grade Percocet, but the three pills he bought contained

The Consent Agenda, which featured a student teacher agreement with Cal Poly and course title changes, and new course offerings at Atascadero High School, passed unanimously. Butler presented the board with a proposed Trustee Workshop. “We’d like to propose that the trustees consider holding a workshop to discuss our facility needs as well as state matching funds which will be used at the board’s discretion to

tioned to a smaller event due to the pandemic, creating a more intimate experience, and it was a hit with participants. So the Rotary has chosen to keep with the smaller experience and limited ticket sales to 350 — and sold out. The cookoff featured 22 local winemakers and three breweries, live music, and great food — all benefiting local high-school seniors. “The food was unbelievable. The wineries are amazing; they are the best,” said Silva. “They know it’s for Paso kids, and they do the best job. Every year there is so much creativity.” Some participating breweries and wineries this year included Ancient Peaks, Asuncion Ridge, Bovino, Calcareous, Cass Winery, Dubost, Eberle, Hope Family Wine, Hoyt,

PLANNING COMM CONTINUED FROM A1

Cities are no longer allowed to charge impact fees or capacity charges for second units that are less than 750 square feet. Units 750 to 1200 square feet get a proportional fee system, which Atascadero has been doing since the law went into effect. ADUs can be attached or detached from a primary unit. It was recommended that a limit of 1,000 square feet is put on ADUs, with exceptions for larger lots and larger primary units where the ADU is behind the primary unit and 50 percent

fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that has been taking the lives of people all over the U.S. The opioid is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. Emilio was found the next day; the cause of his death was determined to be fentanyl poisoning. It was announced on July 28 that Emilio’s case is being taken over by federal court, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles has indicted Wolfe on the charge of selling fentanyl causing death. Since this is now a federal criminal case, it will supersede Wolfe’s local prosecution for the second-degree murder of Emilio. Wolfe faces a minimum sentence of 20 years and a

The motion passed, and the Trustee Workshop will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 9 a.m. Once again, Superintendent Butler addressed the board on whether to hold a special election in March 2023 or adopt Resolution #04-22-23 with a provisional appointment to fill the board vacancy left by Mary Kay Mills after her resignation at the beginning of the month. At the Aug. 8 special board meeting, the AUSD Trustee Board adopted a resolution ordering a governing board member election

maximum sentence of life in prison due to his federal charge if found guilty in court for distributing fentanyl causing death. “Of course it opens up emotions and sometimes it takes me back to day one,” Velci said. “We want justice that’s very important and I think people need to be held accountable.” Velci also added that it’s difficult for her to know that the trial is going to take place, even now, 29 months after her son’s death, but she’s looking forward and will continue to use her voice to spread her fentanyl knowledge. She stated that there has

to fill the vacancy. “We asked for that to be consolidated with the general election, which is scheduled for Nov. 8,” Butler said. “We did submit that in a timely manner, though our county superintendent of schools as well as to the county clerk recorder’s office. At this time, that has been formally denied by the county clerk.” The board was presented with two choices to move forward with filling the vacancy. A provisional appointment within a 60-day timeline or hold a special election. The estimate from the County

been a serious escalation of fentanyl coming into the country since the start of 2022. She went on to add that fentanyl poisoning is reaching youth as young as 13, and that the growing age-range in death numbers is 15 to 18. “And we’re not even looking at the number of people that get saved,” added Velci. “It [fentanyl poisoning] is the No. 1 cause of death from 18- to 40-year-olds.” Velci added that she would love to see more events promoting fentanyl awareness and education happen in the county, and that she comes across people from locally who often have no idea about fentanyl or

Clerk to hold a special election came in at $545,210.00. “If you choose to go with the appointment process, applications would be made available on Friday, Aug. 19, 2022,” Butler said. “Those applications by prospective candidates would be due Monday, Sept. 19, 2022, by 4 p.m.” The Trustee Board approved going forward with Resolution #04-22-23 and will fill the vacancy by provisional appointment. The interviews, after the applications have been turned in, will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 5:30 p.m.

that it’s an issue in the area. “I want to do more education and awareness and spreading this information,” she added. “Because I didn’t have this information, and yet fentanyl, from what I have gathered has been around in this area for awhile.” On Sunday, Aug. 21, the first Fentanyl Awareness Day will take place, and Velci hopes it brings even more awareness to everything surrounding fentanyl in this country. “We finally got that on the calendar and got it recognized. That’s important,” Velci stated. To learn more, go to the Emilio Velci Aloha Project visit emiliovelcialohaproject.com

A public hearing on the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the AUSD and the California School Employees Association, Atascadero Chapter 124, was presented by Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Jackie Martin.

of that dwelling. Wastewater and septic have been a concern with ADUs and UDUs, and it was clarified that, though a half-acre per dwelling is needed for septic, each parcel needs one gross acre, which includes easements and roads. But the restrictions to one gross acre are not needed for Junior Accessory Dwelling Units ( JADUs), which are additions to existing units. The council asked the Planning Commission to look into exceptions for land in more rural areas so that they can apply for ADUs in their unique situation. Standards were added to address that situation.

“So, ADUs, as mentioned, will add to the city’s quota for affordable housing. Half of them will be counted as low and half moderate,” said Gleason. The additions to the ADU, UDU, and Urban Lot Splits add to the current code, but most issues are already addressed in its rules now. The state decided to add UDUs and Urban Lot Splits into the mix as well. So, on Jan. 1, 2022, SB 9 took effect. “In general, what that law said, was basically any single family property now has the ability to construct up to four dwelling units on every property,” Gleason added. “So two

primary dwelling units. Your principal house and the new UDU, as well as your ADU and then potential JADU.” SB 9 only applies to single-family residential lots and allows two primary units on each lot. SB 9 does not apply to the entire city of Atascadero. It is recognized that SB 9 is applied only to urbanized areas. Areas of concern for local application of SB 9 include: • Areas not served by sewer. • Neighborhoods without reasonable secondary emergency egress routes. • Properties with average slopes greater than 30%. • Properties including creeks,

wetlands, or sensitive habitats. • Properties in locations of known archaeological resources. • Properties that include historic resources. Urban Lot Splits were also addressed as part of SB 9. These lot splits can only be performed in single-family zoning, and the owner must occupy one of the dwellings for at least three years, with as close to even lot splits as possible. The Planning Commission Recommendation was for the City Council to approve the updates to various sections of the Municipal Code to accommodate both SB9 and Acces-

sory Dwelling Units. ADU resolution A passed with a change from three-quarter-acre to a half-acre minimum proposed by Commissioner Victoria Carranza. Draft resolution B passed unanimously. Resolution A for UDUs also had a change also proposed by Carranza, which adds an exception for smaller parcels surrounded by larger parcels with the same language as recommended for ADUs. Resolution A passed unanimously along with Resolution B. All four resolutions will be brought before the City Council at a later date.
