City Council Approves Fiscal Year 2021 Annual Road Report Atascadero Police Department purchases new software for dispatch and police records management system By Christianna Marks

ATASCADERO—The Atascadero City Council met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 11. The meeting then recessed to a Successor Agency meeting and a Public Financing Authority meeting and was then preceded by the Council’s closed session. The evenings’ agenda was approved unanimously by the Council. When the meeting went into the consent calendar, Mayor Heather Moreno pulled Item 5. “I would like to have, not a major staff report by any means, but I would like to have a little bit of comment on item number 5,” said Moreno. Item 5 is in regards to a CAD/RMS Software Replacement that will update Atascadero Police’s Computer Aided Dispatch and their Police Records Management System. Both of these systems help make police work safe and effective. The software will also help Atascadero’s fire and police departments comply with legal mandates and clear up time by making manual processes automatic. “Thankfully, with the voters in passing D20, we’re able to finally invest in this for our public safety,” Moreno said. She then asked the Atascadero Police Chief, Bob Masterson, to speak on what Atascadero locals are getting for their money. “Computerated dispatch in this day and age, to operate a dispatch center without computering dispatches up to the modern standard (state of the art) is really asking for trouble. So we’re, needless to say, excited about this. The officers here at Atascadero PD have a front-row seat in the review, CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

Local Pastor Receives Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award Pastor Brad Alford received the award from Nelson Mandela Global Peace Award recipient Dr. Jason Renville By CAMILLE DeVAUL camille@atascaderonews.com

PASO ROBLES—On Friday, Jan. 7, Paso Robles, A New Day Church’s Pastor Brad Alford went down in American history after becoming a Presidential Lifetime Award recipient. In 2002, President George W. Bush created the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) to honor the hundreds of thousands of people across America that have volunteered hundreds, if not thousands of volunteer hours over their lifetime. The program was established to honor the volunteer works of individuals, families, and

organizations throughout the United States. Specifically, The Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award (PLAA, also known as the President’s Call to Service

Award) is the highest level of the PVSA, requiring a minimum of 4,000 hours of documented volunteer service. When asked how he felt to be receiving such a pres-

tigious award, he said he felt “Very humble. I don’t deserve an award. I don’t see myself as ‘Oh I’ve done this, I’ve done that, I’ve done this.’ We try to live a selfless life to serve Jesus

because He is our reward, and so when Dr. Jason motioned to me that this may be a possibility, I was stunned—I look at it as something that is bigger than me.” Dr. Jason Renville, a Human Rights Ambassador for the United Nations (UN), came to Paso Robles to present the award to Pastor Alford. Renville himself is a recipient of the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award, the Nelson Mandela G l o b a l Pe ac e Aw a rd , iChange Nations’ World Civility Award, iChange Nations’ National Statesman Degree, iChange Nations’ Peace Icon Award/Diplomat of The Year. Additionally, Renville is a Global Ambassador-At-Large and Ecclesiastical Officer under the UNs’ Economic and Social Council – Non-Governmental Organization—on top of that, he ministers around the world.

‘I Have a Dream.’ Honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. By HAYLEY MATTSON hayley@atascaderonews.com

“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’ I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered the iconic “I Have a Dream” speech to a crowd of thousands at the March on Washington, Aug. 28, 1963. King’s most important work applied America’s Founding ideals to the cause of civil rights. The last best hope for true racial

progress, King realized, was solidarity: For people to see and treat one another as equals, they had to feel the tugs of a bond far stronger than either race or politics, and for King, that bond was America. After all, there are two words in the phrase “civil rights,” and King grasped that both are crucial. Civil rights are about the fair and equal participation of all citizens in the American community. For those rights to have any power, the bonds of that community must be close-knit and resilient. “I criticize America because I love her,” King said in a speech about the Vietnam War, “and because I want to see her to stand as the moral example of the world.” CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

So we have a live and a silent auction,” Cindy Ursprung, this year’s co-chair at the guild auction, said. “We were not able to have one last year, obviously, so this year we had a plethora of quilts, which was just fabulous.” The auction, which was held on Nov. 6, 2021, brought in a whopping total of $9,000.

Local Veterinarian Robert Schechter Publishes First Memoir The memoir spans his life, from youth in NY to moving his family to his veterinarian practice in Atascadero By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATA S CA D ER O — M y Small World, written by wellloved Atascadero veterinarian, Robert Schechter was self-published in January 2021. The memoir spans Schechter’s life, from his youth growing up in New York to moving his family to Atascadero in 1987 and then opening his veterinarian practice. “My wife and I came back from Australia in March of 2020. We got back, and COVID was here. We barely got out of Australia. I couldn’t go to work for two reasons. First, I might carry the disease, and two, at age 82, I couldn’t open myself to everybody and get the disease. I didn’t know what to do, so I said, “it’s time to sit down and write this memoir,” Schechter said about writing his book. Schechter faced many learning challenges from his early childhood throughout his medical career and has been diagnosed with an attention deficit with a visual memory disorder. It plays a large part in his book. Still, he didn’t let that stop him

from succeeding in everything he set his mind to. He explained, “I was diagnosed with a problem with visual memory. I could never spell words. I don’t picture them. So when I wrote the book, I lived with my phone spellchecking or the computer spellchecking.” Schechter’s father was a first-generation immigrant who only spoke Yiddish when he arrived in New York City. Still, he thrived at learning English before going on to be an executive at a big button company. “He would write letters that nobody would ever throw away,” Schechter said of his father. “My parents supported me. I found out at age 12 or 13 that I loved farming, I loved cows, and I lived in the suburbs of New York City. And my family supported me in doing that. High school supported me. I went to the University of Wisconsin because that’s where the cows were.” Schechter’s life also led him all over the world, allowing him to experience life not only as a veterinarian but also as a Naval Officer, a professor at Cal Poly Ponoma, a Peace Corps Volunteer in Columbia, a husband to his wife Pat, and a father. “I think it was time to tell

the story of our experiences in Columbia. A good part of the book is about that. I went for one year because I didn’t make it through two years. It was so important to the rest of our life,” Schechter added. My Small World also highlights all the coincidences in Schechter’s life over his 82 years on the planet. Including getting into the University of Illinois for Vet School when one of the people interviewing him ended up being a connection from his earlier college years at the University of Wisconsin. “This town is just wonderful. I opened the veterinary hospital, and everybody knew me,” said Schechter of Atascadero. “I had four biological children, but I had five adopted children as well, and they all played sports, and I got to know everybody in town running from one [sports] game to the other.” A few years after moving to Atascadero in 1987, Schechter bought then vet Dr. Vanderhoof ’s practice near Agriwood (an old feed store and dairy barn). Then in the early 2000s, a heavy rain season washed out the bridge over the Salinas River, and with a move into town, the Atascadero Pet Hospital and Emergency Center (as we now

know it) was born. “So anyhow, I thought it was time to put it all down and let people here know me more, and also let people who want to become veterinarians gain a lot out of my experiences as a veterinarian.” Schechter is still working at

the Atascadero Pet Hospital and Emergency Center to this day. Alongside his son, Aaron, and eight other medical professionals. “What was the most satisfying thing in my professional life? It wasn’t being a great veterinarian. That was okay. It wasn’t the

Paso Robles Area Historical Society Introduces New Exhibits Featuring exhibits of the Still Family of La Panza BY CAMILLE DEVAUL AND THE PASO ROBLES AREA HISTORICAL SOCIETY STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — The El Paso de Robles Area Historical Society (PRAHS) and Museum are getting ready to introduce a series of new exhibits throughout 2022 to feature more of El Paso de Robles’s rich history. Starting in March, Paso Roblans and visitors alike will learn more about the Thomas Still Family of La Panza, including the photography of Dr. Thomas Still’s daughter, Dabirma, pioneer lady photographer, and poetry written by Dr. Still’s son, Mentley. The La Panza region, located just East of the La Panza Mountain Range and South of the San Juan Valley, and West of the Carrisa Plains, was the epicenter of California’s only Coastal Range gold rush. We can look forward to displays at the museum giving us an in-depth look at that same Coastal Gold Rush of 1878. In 1863, Dr. Still, his wife, Martha, and their two young sons joined a wagon train from Kansas heading for California. In the late fall of 1867, the Still family arrived in San Luis Obispo and remained there for about five years. In 1872, Dr. Still moved his family to a quarter-section of land in eastern San Luis Obispo County, known as Ortiga Springs.

Once gold was discovered in Vasquez Canyon, about 30 miles Southwest of Ortiga Springs, Dr. Still took part in the rush and purchased a mining claim in the area we know now as La Panza. The Still family was one of the many who came to the La Panza area to mine for placer gold. Dr. Still and his wife moved into a sod house with a thatched roof in the Vasquez mining canyon during the summer of 1879. In 1882, Dr. Still bought a quarter section of school land in La Panza about three-quarters of a mile from the mining claim and moved his family there. With the aid of their seven children, the Stills set up a store, an inn, and the La Panza Post Office within their home. Today, La Panza isn’t known for its gold-rich land but rather for olive oil produced on the La Panza Ranch, once owned by a Paso Robles founder, Drury James—who is notably the uncle to outlaws Jesse and Frank James. It is generally known that the James boys did stay with their Uncle Drury on his La Panza Ranch east of the budding town of “Hot Springs” (Paso Robles) through the winter of 18681869, the reason for their visit probably being more of a social call rather than robbery. We can look to another special display coming to the museum presented by the Santa Margarita Historical Society, which discusses the influence and connection with their additionally historical town. Other permanent exhibits at the museum include: • Paderewski • Carnegie Library

medicine. It wasn’t caring for the animals. It was stimulating, encouraging, and helping people to develop self-esteem. Mentoring people. That as the best,” reminisced Schechter. You can purchase My Small World from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

2022 Tax Filing Season Begins January 24

IRS outlines refund timing and what to expect in advance of Apr. 18 tax deadline STAFF REPORT

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that the nation’s tax season will start on Monday, Jan. 24, when the tax agency will begin accepting and processing 2021 tax year returns. The Jan. 24 start date for individual tax return filers allows the IRS time to perform programming and testing that is critical to ensuring IRS systems run smoothly. Updated programming helps ensure that eligible people can claim the proper amount of the Child Tax Credit after comparing their 2021 advance credits and claim any remaining stimulus money as a Recovery Rebate Credit when they file their 2021 tax return. “Planning for the nation’s filing season process is a massive undertaking, and IRS teams have been working non-stop these past several months to prepare,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “The pandemic continues to create challenges, but the IRS reminds people there are important steps they can take to help ensure their tax return and refund don’t face processing delays. Filing electronically with direct deposit and avoiding a paper tax return is more important than ever this year. And we urge extra attention to those who received an Economic Impact Payment or an advance Child Tax Credit last year. People should make sure they report the correct amount on their tax return to avoid delays.” The IRS encourages everyone to have all the information they need in hand to make sure they file a complete and accurate return. Having an accurate tax return can avoid processing delays, refund delays, and later IRS notices. This is especially important for people who received advance Child Tax Credit payments or Economic Impact Payments (American Rescue Plan stimulus payments) in 2021; they will need the amounts of these payments when preparing their tax return. The IRS is mailing special letters to recipients, and they can also check amounts received on IRS.gov. Like last year, there will be individuals filing tax returns who, even though they are not required to file, need to file a

2021 return to claim a Recovery Rebate Credit to receive the tax credit from the 2021 stimulus payments or reconcile advance payments of the Child Tax Credit. People who don’t normally file also could receive other credits. Apr. 18 tax filing deadline for most The filing deadline to submit 2021 tax returns or an extension to file and pay tax owed is Monday, Apr. 18, 2022, for most taxpayers. By law, Washington, D.C., holidays impact tax deadlines for everyone in the same way federal holidays do. The due date is Apr. 18, instead of Apr. 15, because of the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia for everyone except taxpayers who live in Maine or Massachusetts. Taxpayers in Maine or Massachusetts have until Apr. 19, 2022, to file their returns due to the Patriots’ Day holiday in those states. Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Monday, Oct. 17, to file. Awaiting processing of previous tax returns? People can still file 2021 returns Rettig noted that IRS employees continue to work hard on critical areas affected by the pandemic, including processing of tax returns from last year and record levels of phone calls coming in. “In many areas, we are unable to deliver the amount of service and enforcement that our taxpayers and tax system deserve and needs. This is frustrating for taxpayers, for IRS employees, and for me,” Rettig said. “IRS employees want to do more, and we will continue in 2022 to do everything possible with the resources available to us. And we will continue to look for ways to improve. We want to deliver as much as possible while also protecting the health and safety of our employees and taxpayers. Additional resources are essential to helping our employees do more in 2022— and beyond.” The IRS continues to reduce the inventory of prior-year individual tax returns that have not been fully processed. As of Dec. 3, 2021, the IRS has processed nearly 169 million tax returns. All paper and electronic individual 2020 refund returns received prior to April 2021 have been processed if the return had no errors or did not require further review. Taxpayers generally will not need to wait for their 2020 return to be fully processed to file their 2021 tax returns and

can file when they are ready. Key information to help taxpayers The IRS encourages people to use online resources before calling. Last filing season, as a result of COVID-era tax changes and broader pandemic challenges, the IRS phone systems received more than 145 million calls from Jan. 1 to May 17, more than four times more calls than in an average year. In addition to IRS.gov, the IRS has a variety of other free options available to help taxpayers, ranging from free assistance at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly locations across the country to the availability of the IRS Free File program. “Our phone volumes continue to remain at record-setting levels,” Rettig said. “We urge people to check IRS.gov and establish an online account to help them access information more quickly. We have invested in developing new online capacities to make this a quick and easy way for taxpayers to get the information they need.” Last year’s average tax refund was more than $2,800. More than 160 million individual tax returns for the 2021 tax year are expected to be filed, with the vast majority of those coming before the traditional April tax deadline. Overall, the IRS anticipates most taxpayers will receive their refund within 21 days of when they file electronically if they choose direct deposit and there are no issues with their tax return. The IRS urges taxpayers and tax professionals to file electronically. To avoid delays in processing, people should avoid filing paper returns wherever possible. By law, the IRS cannot issue a refund involving the Earned Income Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit before mid-February, though eligible people may file their returns beginning on Jan. 24. The law provides this additional time to help the IRS stop fraudulent refunds from being issued. Some returns, filed electronically or on paper, may need manual review, which delays the processing if our systems detect a possible error or missing information, or there is suspected identity theft or fraud. Some of these situations require us to correspond with taxpayers, but some do not. This work does require special handling by an IRS employee, so, in these instances, it may take the IRS more than the normal 21 days

to issue any related refund. In those cases where IRS is able to correct the return without corresponding, the IRS will send an explanation to the taxpayer. File electronically and choose direct deposit To speed refunds, the IRS urges taxpayers to file electronically with direct deposit information as soon as they have everything they need to file an accurate return. If the return includes errors or is incomplete, it may require further review that may slow the tax refund. Having all information available when preparing the 2021 tax return can reduce errors and avoid delays in processing. Most individual taxpayers file IRS Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR once they receive Forms W-2 and other earnings information from their employers, issuers like state agencies, and payers. The IRS has incorporated recent changes to the tax laws into the forms and instructions and shared the updates with its partners, who develop the software used by individuals and tax professionals to prepare and file their returns. Forms 1040 and 1040SR and the associated instructions are available now on IRS. gov. For the latest IRS forms and instructions, visit the IRS website at IRS.gov/forms. Free File available Jan. 14 IRS Free File will open on Jan. 14 when participating providers will accept completed returns and hold them until they can be filed electronically with the IRS. Many commercial tax preparation software companies and tax professionals will also be accepting and preparing tax returns before Jan. 24 to submit the returns when the IRS systems open. The IRS strongly encourages people to file their tax returns electronically to minimize errors and for faster refunds—as well having all the information they need to file an accurate return to avoid delays. The IRS’s Free File program allows taxpayers who made $73,000 or less in 2021 to file their taxes electronically for free using software provided by commercial tax filing companies. More information will be available on Free File later this week. In addition to IRS Free File, the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals. Watch for IRS letters about advance Child Tax Credit

payments and third Economic Impact Payments The IRS started sending Letter 6419, 2021 advance Child Tax Credit, in late December 2021 and continues to do so into January. The letter contains important information that can help ensure the return is accurate. People who received the advance CTC payments can also check the amount of the payments they received by using the CTC Update Portal available on IRS.gov. Eligible taxpayers who received advanced Child Tax Credit payments should file a 2021 tax return to receive the second half of the credit. Eligible taxpayers who did not receive advanced Child Tax Credit payments can claim the full credit by filing a tax return. The IRS will begin issuing Letter 6475, Your Third Economic Impact Payment, to individuals who received a third payment in 2021 in late January. While most eligible people already received their stimulus payments, this letter will help individuals determine if they are eligible to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit for missing stimulus payments. If so, they must file a 2021 tax return to claim their remaining stimulus amount. People can also use IRS online account to view their Economic Impact Payment amounts. Both letters include important information that can help people file an accurate 2021 tax return. If the return includes errors or is incomplete, it may require further review while the IRS corrects the error, which may slow the tax refund. Using this information when preparing a tax return electronically can reduce errors and avoid delays in processing. The fastest way for eligible individuals to get their 2021 tax refund, including their allowable Child Tax Credit and Recovery Rebate Credit, is by filing electronically and choosing direct deposit. Tips to make filing easier To avoid processing delays and speed refunds, the IRS urges people to follow these steps: Organize and gather 2021 tax records, including Social Security numbers, Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers, Adoption Taxpayer Identification Numbers, and this year’s Identity Protection Personal Identification Numbers valid for calendar year 2022. Check IRS.gov for the latest

tax information, including the latest on reconciling advance payments of the Child Tax Credit or claiming a Recovery Rebate Credit for missing stimulus payments. There is no need to call. Set up or log in securely at IRS.gov/account to access personal tax account information, including balance, payments, and tax records, including adjusted gross income. Make final estimated tax payments for 2021 by Tuesday, Jan. 18, to help avoid a tax-time bill and possible penalties. Individuals can use a bank account, prepaid debit card, or mobile app to use direct deposit and will need to provide routing and account numbers. Learn how to open an account at an FDIC-Insured bank or through the National Credit Union Locator Tool. File a complete and accurate return electronically when ready and choose direct deposit for the quickest refund. Key filing season dates There are several important dates taxpayers should keep in mind for this year’s filing season: Jan. 14: IRS Free File opens. Taxpayers can begin filing returns through IRS Free File partners; tax returns will be transmitted to the IRS starting Jan. 24. Tax software companies also are accepting tax filings in advance. Jan. 18: Due date for tax year 2021 fourth-quarter estimated tax payment. Jan. 24: IRS begins 2022 tax season. Individual 2021 tax returns begin being accepted, and processing begins. Jan. 28: Earned Income Tax Credit Awareness Day to raise awareness of valuable tax credits available to many people – including the option to use the prior-year income to qualify. Apr. 18: Due date to file 2021 tax return or request extension and pay tax owed due to Emancipation Day holiday in Washington, D.C., even for those who live outside the area. Apr. 19: Due date to file 2021 tax return or request extension and pay tax owed for those who live in MA or ME due to Patriots’ Day holiday Oct. 17: Due date to file for those requesting an extension on their 2021 tax returns Planning ahead It’s never too early to get ready for the tax-filing season ahead.

Friends of the Paso Robles Library Opens New Store

Proceeds from the store will support the Paso Robles City Library STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — What To Do With Thousands of Books? Open a new store! The Friends of the Paso Robles Library has opened a second bookstore at The Gatherings Emporium, 1335 Park Street. Proceeds from this store, in addition to those from the existing Friends Store in the Library lobby, will go to support our town Library. This summer, the Paso Robles Library was at last able to rescind its ban on book donations which it was forced to make during the height of the pandemic. So the Library’s Friends organization set up two days last July to receive donations. In those two days, it was inundated with literally thousands of books, the pent-up supply of donations our community members had been sitting on for months. Cars

were lined up in the parking lot behind the Library to drop off box loads and trucks full of books. Friends Volunteers worked for hours to sort and box up the donations, which were then carted off to storage facilities. The organization sells gently-used books as well as unique gifts from its store in the Library Lobby to benefit the town Library, but the shop is tiny—no way was there room for all those books. The Friends put their heads together to figure out what to do with the huge backlog. The usual bi-annual sales were out of the question due to the ongoing pandemic, and even those events would not dent the supply now in storage. A new solution had to be found. A Friends Board member contacted the owner of The Gatherings Emporium, who generously offered a large room in the store to serve as a second Friends bookshop, now dubbed The Friends BackRoom Bookstore. This opens up a whole new clientele base for Friends sales as well as providing all existing Friends customers a new and larger venue in which to browse for books in all categories—fiction, nonfiction, children’s, gardening, cooking, etc., as well as CDs. It’s a Happy New Year win/win for both The Gatherings Emporium and the Friends of the Library.

where Ab, a pharmacist, owned a drug store for many years. Marianne was a “tomboy” in an age when girls were meant to wear frilly dresses. She said she ran faster than most of the boys her age. Marianne enjoyed competitive and synchronized swimming through High School and won numerous awards in those events. She married Bruce Elliott, and they had four children, Terri, Nick, Mike, and Tina. The family moved to Portland, Oregon, and then to Reno, Nevada, in 1964, when Reno was a town of 50,000. Once her children were older, she co-owned a designer/drapery business and Schillings Luggage in the Park Lane Mall and Harrah’s, Lake Tahoe, with her lifelong friend Sharon Clements. She loved to travel and lived in Puerto Vallarta for part of the year for several years in the 1980s. Marianne

S

Susan graduated from Cal Poly State University with her teaching degree and was highly active in the Future Homemakers of America Association. She will always be remembered by her students as an exceptional teacher. She inspired high school students across the Salinas Valley and in Paso Robles. She taught Home Economics at King City High School (1964-1966), Gonzales High School (1966-1968), and Paso Robles High School from 1970 until she retired in July of 2001. Susan Amaral touched more lives than she will ever know. She was always there to greet you with a smile and

eventually settled in the Bay Area to be close to relatives, where she lived the rest of her life. Her passion for painting, and art in general, continued wherever she went. She took and gave art lessons and joined numerous art groups, helping with various art functions, and entering art shows. One of her pieces was accepted in the Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition with 44 other winners out of 600 entrants, which toured the country for a year. Marianne was known for her kind and gentle demeanor but with a strong will, spirited humor, and sense of adventure. She leaves four children, nine grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, many relatives, and close friends with wonderful memories of love and laughter. We will plan a celebration of her life some time this spring.

Along with her own sons and grandchildren, she had a long list of “adopted extra children and grandchildren” that she would take under her wing. She loved to travel and was always ready for an adventure! After retiring from teaching, she spent her time traveling with her friends and family and barrel racing on her horse with her granddaughter. Susan was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in October 2016 and began a long process of surgeries and chemotherapy treatments. Throughout her fight with cancer, she never once gave up

hope, and she never stopped living her life to the fullest. Getting back on her horse as soon as possible following each treatment was her top priority. Her greatest joys were being on the back of a good horse, attending rodeos or cattle shows, and most importantly, having her family together. Not even cancer could keep her from doing what she loved. Susan had a special place in her heart for Mission San Miguel in San Miguel, California. A public service will be held there on Saturday, March 26th, at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, please send charitable donations in her name to Mission San Miguel.

1772-2022: Getting to Know Mission San Luis Obispo at the Courtyard Outdoor 250th Celebration February 20

Unique to the Mission story, San Luis Obispo was not part of Spain’s original plan for populating Alta California through the establishment of missions, presidios, and pueblos. The first four missions, San Diego, Carmel, San AntoCONNIE PILLSBURY nio, and San Gabriel, had run out of food, and the whole COMMENTARY experiment risked abandonow many times have ment. However, grizzly bears you traveled down were found in what is now Los Highway 101 and Osos, ‘the valley of the bears,’ noticed the ‘State Historical and this meat basically saved Landmark Mission San Luis the mission movement. Obispo’ sign near Broad Street, With the discovery of the remarking to your family, meat-providing bears, Father “We really need to go visit the Serra added another mission Mission someday.” to the chain, Mission San Well, this is the year, as Luis Obispo de Tolosa. The 2022 marks the 250th annifirst humble site was located versary of the founding of the on the confluence of Stenner Mission by Franciscan Priests and San Luis Obispo Creeks, from Spain, Father Junipero only to be flooded out and Serra, and Father Jose Cavaller. moved upstream. The second

H

site also flooded, prompting the selection of the ‘highest’ spot along the creek for the third and final location. From there, the interesting saga of the construction of California’s oldest large building begins. You will be able to learn the rest of the story from Mission Docents at the first 250th celebrative event on Sunday, February 20, from 11 am to 3:30 pm, free and open to the public. The outdoor courtyard celebration will give you the opportunity to tour the Mission, with docent-led tours every half hour. Music, authentic food, spinning and weaving demonstrations by local weavers, Native American basket display, branding exhibit, and more will provide a unique chance to become familiar with the Mission in

one visit. For children, activity tables featuring Native American games, bead making, and pictograph painting will be scattered throughout the garden. The whole family can visit the Bell Tower to get a birds-eye view over Mission Plaza and San Luis Creek. Of significance to those of us in North County, all of the mission ranching operations were located at Santa Margarita de Cortona Asistencia, which was a sub-mission to San Luis Obispo. Thousands of head of longhorn cattle ranged throughout North County, foraging up and down the Salinas riverbed. The cattle provided not only meat but also valuable hides, called “California Dollars.” Taken by ox-cart to what is now Avila Beach, the hides

were soaked in the saltwater and traded with Yankee, Asian and Russian ships for needed goods for the Mission. Also important to North County is the 1776 De Anza Expedition consisting of 200 colonists on the way to create a settlement in the areas of San Jose and San Francisco for Spain. The group stopped at Mission San Luis Obispo for several days of rest before heading up the grade to follow the Salinas River north, with their livestock and cattle, families, and goods. Many residents don’t realize that the land we live on in North County was part of Spain for 300 years, from 1541 to 1822. After the revolution of 1822, Mexico became the second occupant of this area called Alta California. The Mexican Ranchero era lasted

26 years, ending in 1848 with the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo. California was admitted into the United States as the 31st state in 1850, thus becoming the third country to govern the land we live on and call home. Understanding the rich history of Spain and Mexico’s presence here in Alta California adds depth to the present experience of living here. Take advantage of the 250th Courtyard Celebration at San Luis Obispo on February 20 to immerse yourself in that history through authentic food, music, and hands-on learning!

New Year’s Resolutions

DANIEL RICH COMMENTARY

R

ealistically, there is no compelling reason to make resolutions or be only introspective at the beginning of the year.

On the one hand, the

individual who never makes resolutions or never examines themselves risks being mired in a rut, continuing habits or activities that are at best not self-serving and, at worst, self-destructive. On the other hand, while there is some risk-taking in being willing to look at oneself. It takes a certain amount of confidence. This implies asking oneself, “is there anything that I can or should be doing differently in life”? This helps to reinforce who

you really are as an individual. Why not be introspective any time of the year, re-evaluating one’s behavior, goals or priorities? This has the potential to promote self-actualization, re-affirming who you really are. If an individual is determined to examine one’s life and possibly make changes, the key is to set realistic and attainable goals. The individual who, for example, has gained weight and desires to lose it should not only set realistic goals of

weight loss but a strategy of how to accomplish that goal. For example, strategies might include researching various foods and diets or consulting with a dietician. It is not only important to set realistic goals, but additionally, not to beat yourself up if these goals are not immediately accomplished. Traditionally, when making resolutions, people focus on diet, exercise, or spending and saving goals. Some individuals might focus on simplifying their

lives by having less clutter or perhaps fewer projects or activities. One can have other lifestyle goals such as having more social contacts, perhaps reaching out more to both family and friends. Or, individuals might explore being more creative, volunteering, or traveling more. If one’s goal is to change one or more habits, telling family and friends about your goals can reinforce your commitment. Don’t beat yourself up if you encoun-

development. Humans underestimate the power of compounding because our brains can barely figure things linearly, causally, and hypothetically. If you took $100 and bought Apple on Dec. 1, 2016 (at about $27 per share) and VALENTINA PETROVA continued to put in $100 per month until this Dec. 1, COMMENTARY 2021, you would have spent a ou start from New total of $6000 overtime, but York City, flying to own $19,000 of Apple stock. Los Angeles. The That’s what compounding and plane veers off course by a 1 dollar-cost-averaging do. Most to 3-degree smudge. No one people think $100 is nothnotices. You munch on your ing.

even though short-term we can’t notice. Your life is the sum total of all of your habits. One cigarette now, becoming a smoker, leads to lung cancer thirty years later. One mile on the treadmill today, consistently, turns to habitually working out, will save you from heart disease, obesity, and the usual things that prematurely kill people. Quantum leaps and massive action are possible but not likely and hard to sustain. Try small 1 percent changes instead. Think of something so small you will have zero resistance doing it. In his book “Atomic Habits,” James Clear did the math on change. Doing 1 percent better every day for one year will make you 38 percent better at whatever the thing is.

What’s 1 percent of learning French daily? 20 min? I knew someone who learned German from zero to conversational level in a few months by listening to lessons and practicing while driving to and from work in LA traffic. Trust the process! Even if it feels like nothing much is changing. If you go to the gym and do three easy things only, you won’t get the muscle ache you can brag about to your co-workers. But if you get that muscle ache, you’ll be out of the gym for a week to recover. And there your momentum ends. Compare yourself not to the pros but to your past self. You live your life, not someone else’s. Schedule your activities. What gets scheduled, gets

done. Once it’s on your schedule, keep it there. Nothing should displace it! Planning will help you use time efficiently. Make it easy on yourself. Eliminate obstacles and possible excuse for not following through. Set reminders for your activities so you don’t get sidetracked. Measure your progress. Keep logs, calendars, measurements in whatever way relevant. Take the test. Weigh yourself. Keep track of body composition. How much you eat. How much you sleep. How many chapters are read. Tracking makes you feel committed, responsible, and accountable. Celebrate milestones. That’s the best part of tracking your progress. Pet yourself on the back as you deserve it!

India, and Russia to pollute as they please. And we’re going to war against carbon dioxide, which is what breathing produces. Are we, therefore, going to mandate that humans be phased out by 2035? Depending on foreign countries for everything from our medicines to toys. We are importing 15% of our food supply, and from 1999 to 2017, the amount of food we imported into this country tripled to $147 billion. And allowing China to buy our biggest pork packer and two Brazilian firms, JBS and Marfrig, to buy so many American firms they now comprise two of the Big Four meatpackers only ensures that we’ll become even more dependent on foreigners for our food in the future. Spending $1,557,083 to watch lizards on a treadmill; taking $4,575,431 from taxpayers to see what happened when alcoholic rats were sprayed with bobcat urine; wasting $36,831,620 on a study to see why hair turns gray; giving the National Institute of Health a $48,500 grant to write a history about smoking in Russia during the last 30 years; giving the DOD a $283,500 grant to study the daily lives of baby gnatcatchers because they’re threatened; squandering $65,473 of taxpayer dollars by handing it over to the

National Park Service to figure out what attracts bugs to a light bulb. What’s next, giving the USDA a million or two to find out how many federal employees it took to screw in the lightbulb? Getting out of the manufacturing business and becoming a “service economy” where we’ll all make a living waiting on one another while depending on foreigners for almost everything we use and need. Spending 20 years and 83 billion dollars on training Afghan forces and then leaving behind American citizens along with 85 billion worth of military equipment. Freeing felons because the prisons are full. Adopting a “let it burn” policy at the Forest Service and BLM. Allowing 4,000 trees to grow where there should be 1,000, not allowing thinning or removal of deadfall, closing of roads, eliminating clear cuts which acted as firebreaks and getting rid of cows and sheep to graze forest land to naturally eliminate fuel loads so that in 2020 California alone could spend $10 billion fighting forest fires. Being short 80,000 truck drivers and then mandating that all people driving a truck for a living be vaccinated for COVID or else lose their job.

Paying people not to work is unsustainable. As is our current Social Security system. Going from being a country that produced 100% of its energy requirements to begging sheiks and cartel members to produce more energy. Canceling the Keystone pipeline, getting rid of leases on public lands and waters, and suspending leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve all in the name of the Green New Deal and because of a prediction that melting ice caps could flood Los Angeles. (There could be negative effects too.) Then wondering why gasoline went up $1.30 a gallon in the past year. • Substantially lowering the amount that farmers, ranchers, and timber producers can shield from inheritance taxes so that upon the death of both parents, the farm, ranch, or forest has to be sold just to pay the taxes. And these are the same people who you’re going to trust and rely upon to tell you how to sustainably run your ranch that’s probably been in your family for several generations?

don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of all this sustainability gobbledygook. I’ll tell you what’s not sustainable: Throwing our borders open to welcome drug dealers, human traffickers, terrorists, violent criminals, and people infected with Covid to enter the country. And then flying them in the middle of the night to towns all across America, so they have to deal with all the ramifications. Getting rid of police and wondering why crime is up. Printing money so fast, the circulation of dollars in the US is up 336% in 18 months which is causing inflation to explode while savers are paid .03% on their savings. The fed can’t raise interest rates to curb inflation because the payment on the thirty trillion in national debt would use up a sizable chunk of the federal budget. We’re fighting climate change with idiotic and unnecessary overregulation while allowing China,

“God’s Faithful Promise Assures Us that Every Problem Can be Handled in the New Year” 1 Corinthians 10:13

dr. gary barker COLUMNIST

Anyone who thinks that he will not experience any problems in the new year I believe is naïve and unrealistic. No one knows what the future will be except God. It is comforting to know that God has given believers, who regard the Holy Bible as the Word of God, a clear promise concerning the future events that will enter into their lives. This promise was written by the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 10:13: “NO temptation has overtaken you except such is common to man; but GOD IS FAITHFUL, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you ARE ABLE, but with

the temptation will also make a way of escape that you may be ABLE to bear it.” This promise clearly states that God is faithful and trustworthy to not allow something to ever happen to a believer in the new year that He doesn’t control and oversee. God’s omnipotence and omniscience will prevent any temptation or trial to come into a believer’s life that God will not enable him to overcome and solve. God will supply both the wisdom and strength to overcome any problem. The Bible promises in Philippians 4:13 that a believer that trusts in Christ can do all things thru His power. The apostle Paul states in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that the problems and trials will overtake a believer but will NEVER OVERCOME him by defeating and destroying him. Experiencing hardship and difficulties is a common thing

in the lives of everyone. God is faithful to control everything that comes into His child’s life. This control is manifested by regulating how much can be endured by a believer who is being tried or tested. God tests a believer’s faith in trials to build him up and not to harm or destroy him ( James 1:2-5, 1 Peter 1:6-7). Therefore, a believer will never experience a trial, test, or temptation that can’t be overcome and be victoriously conquered. We can gain mastery over any problem because God promises to provide a “way of escape” so that he can bear and endure the problem until God reveals a solution. A solution is usually gained and achieved thru understanding God’s wisdom that is revealed in His Holy Word. Divine revelation that is received from the Bible usually provides both an effective and

permanent solution to each problem. I have personally seen this occur many times in my ministry of helping people. I exhort and encourage people to immediately appropriate God’s solution when it is revealed to them. This is the benefit of biblical counseling. It solves life’s problems in a truthful and correct way. In a very practical way, this verse in 1 Corinthians 10:13 makes it impossible for people to make excuses for not solving any personal problem. God is willing to solve our problems if we are willing to take His “way of escape” and obey His Word. May we claim and use God’s promise to be victorious problem solvers in the NEW Year.

Paso Robles: Willow Creek District BY JENNIFER BRAVO Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance

T

he Paso Robles Willow Creek District and Templeton Gap District come together like complex puzzle pieces. The two AVAs share similar histories as well as very dynamic boundaries, and both sit squarely on the Highway 46 corridor that ushers in the Templeton Gap effect. Where they differ is in the dramatic topography that defines the Willow Creek District. History

The early settlers in the Paso Robles Willow Creek area were Mennonites. A Mennonite church had been built along San Marcos Creek in 1897, just upstream from Chimney Rock in the Adelaida District. Many of the Mennonites that attended the church lived south of San Marcos Creek, and eventually, the church, including the church building itself, would follow those settlers and built on the corner of Vineyard Drive and Dover Canyon Road. The church became known as the Willow Creek Church and served the people there until it burned in January of 1967 and now is the site of the Willow Creek Mennonite Cemetery. In the early 1900s, when the Paso Robles region was encouraging settlers to move to the central coast, walnuts were seen as the crop in Willow Creek District. The higher amount of rainfall the Willow Creek area received was a prime factor that led to this since dry farming was the only option. Today there are still many orchards that continue to produce walnuts, but little by little, the orchards are aging out and being replaced with vines. Many early settlers in the Willow Creek area planted small vineyards along with grain, nut, and other fruit crops. One of the earliest bonded wineries in the Paso Robles region, The Pesenti Winery, was established in the Willow Creek District in 1934, shortly after the repeal of prohibition. Today, the original Pesenti Winery is the home of Turley Wine Cellars, which focuses on wines from old vine, dry-farmed vineyards, many of which are grown in the Willow Creek District that are 80 to 130 years old. One-hundred thirty years old!?! Yes, as lore goes, the Ueberroth Vineyard was planted in the late 1880s by the Tonesi Brothers (known back then as the Tonesi Vineyard). Over the years, time got the better of the vineyard; however, in the 60s, it was purchased by Peter Ueberroth (former MLB commissioner) and was renamed the Will-Pete Vineyard, eventually

named the Ueberroth Vineyard. This special vineyard was lucky enough to have a continuous chain of people who care looking after the site. Local names like Stephen Goldman, David Osgood, John Munch, Neil Heaton, and Lazaro Morones. As the story goes, sometime in the early 90s, some fruit, around three tons, was going through primary fermentation at the Castoro winery. John Munch of Le Cuvier and Niels Udsen of Castoro enter the winery to find the delicious aromas of the Will-Pete Vineyard, completely overpowering all the other aromas of fermenting fruit in the winery. Today the vineyard is widely regarded as the oldest vineyard in the Paso Robles region, let alone the Willow Creek District. It is farmed and managed by Turley Wine Cellars, who continue to produce a single vineyard wine honoring this special place and the Ueberroth family name. The Willow Creek District currently has approximately 1,400 acres under vine with well over 20 wineries, which include brands L’Aventure, Linne Calodo, Midnight Cellars, Saxum, Denner Vineyards, Jack Creek Cellars, Jada Vineyard, Booker Vineyard, Willow Creek Wine Collective, and Caliza to name a few. Namesake

The Willow Creek District gets its name from the creek and watershed known as Willow Creek, which runs through the center of the district. Willow trees are commonly found in riparian environs, and because they require moist soils, you will usually find them along a stream or riverbank. This also leads to the naming of the bank as Willow. There are probably too many Willow Creeks in the US to count, and when the AVA was named, care had to be taken to ensure that naming rights were not infringed upon. The Paso Robles, Willow Creek District, is the formal name of the AVA and is such because there is a Willow Creek Winery in New York State as well

Early settlers in the Paso Robles Willow Creek area were Mennonites who built a church along San Marcos Creek in 1897. Contributed photo

as a Willow Creek AVA in Humbolt and Trinity counties in California. The naming specifically ties it to the Paso Robles area. Climate Cool-weather, compared to the rest of the Paso Robles AVA, persists in the Willow Creek District. Fog from the coast infiltrates the mountain gaps and spills into different plateaus and arroyos, which often are the same paths for consistent ocean breezes. The Templeton Gap effect also helps to cool more southern portions of the Willow Creek district where the boundary lines blur between the eponymous Templeton Gap District. These winds are far more pronounced than the aforementioned breezes; however, the combination of the two is what defines this region as a II on the Winkler and Amerine scales. Terroir & Soil Much like the Adelaida District, you will find limestone all over the Willow Creek District. These easyto-spot rocks of sedimentary origin are typically a pale sandstone color with horizon lines of the crystalline Calcite that help give the rock its distinct appearance. Over the years, many extra-large specimens have been dotting the landscape, excavated for farming or development of parcels. Weather and time round out the edges of these rocks and, to a youthful eye, appear to be giant resting turtles, which is how the winery, Turtle Rock, got its name. Many of the soils have not only active lime weathered from soft calcareous shale fragments but the evolution of secondary lime within the soil profiles and complexes. Other complexes of calcareous origin include the Calodo-Linne complex of alkaline clay loams, the Nacimiento-Ayar-Diablo complex of clay loams, and smaller areas of Ryer and Rincon clays and clay loams, and Croply and Gazos clays. What is interesting is how soils combine to create interesting growing environments and, when alone, can be

completely opposite of one another. The Calodo and Linne soils are different in terms of vineyard potential, as the Calodo soil is much shallower and can be more challenging to dry farm, producing low vigor vineyards. The deeper Linne soils have greater rooting depths and water-holding capacities, producing low-moderate vine vigor. The soil series that extends eastward from the Paso Robles Willow Creek viticultural area throughout the Templeton Gap District is the deeper Linne series, which is common on older alluvial terraces and benches. All soils in the Paso Robles Willow Creek District tend to be young to intermediate in age, with pH values of 7.8 – 8.9 common. Topography The Paso Robles, Willow Creek District, is a relatively high elevation, truly mountainous area of the coastal range. The slopes become more steep, elevated, and dramatic in the northern portion of the AVA. Also unique are many conically shaped hills in the neighborhood of Denner Vineyards, James Berry Vineyard, Clos Solene, Booker Vineyard, and L’Aventure. The Paso Robles Creek watershed, a direct tributary of the Salinas River, runs east-west and originates from the range crest. Feeding the Paso Robles

Creek are the smaller tributaries Jack Creek, which runs north-south at the western edge of the Willow Creek District, and Willow Creek, which sits more to the center of the district and also runs north-south. These creeks have aided in the sculpting of the landscape by eroding and dissecting the mountain slopes. From the air, there is almost a tree-like pattern that eventually winds its way to the perennial Salinas River. Hillsides are well covered by the Coast Live Oak, an evergreen that grows all over California’s coastal ranges, as well as plenty of chaparral. The Valley Oak, where El Paso de Robles gets its name (Pass of the Oaks), grows majestically in the alluvial and lower-lying areas of the district. The Paso Robles Willow Creek District, for well over 100 years, has been the home of vineyards, Mennonite families, and walnut orchards. It was an area early identified with agricultural potential, and as the years and science later confirmed, it is! Many popular and burgeoning brands from the Paso Robles AVA have made their home in the Willow Creek District, and fruit from the AVA is in high demand. It is an area of Paso Robles with immense beauty and color that is worth exploring.
