Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival Returns Forty-seven wineries poured, and 1,300 people attended By CHRISTIANNA MARKS christianna@atascaderonews.com

ATA S C A D E R O — Lovers of wine headed out to Atascadero Lake on Saturday, June 25, from 4 to 8 p.m. to enjoy the 25th Annual Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival. With 47 wineries

pouring and around 1,300 community members in attendance, Atascadero’s evening wine fest is back. “After a two-year hiatus, it was wonderful to see the park filled with vendors and happy attendees enjoying the only evening wine festival on the central coast,” said Gail Kudlac, the event’s coordinator. The festival, which was put on by the Atascadero Chamber along with the festival’s

committee members, including Kudlac, Dawn Smith, Rosey Parks, Gina Lutz, Carol Porter, Josh Cross, Julie Mathews, Terrie Banish, Mark Dariz, and Erin Fintan du Fresne, didn’t only feature wine. There were also craft beer, distilleries, and cider houses featured. Some of the distillers and wineries present were Ancient Peaks, Ballast Point, BarrelHouse, Eberle, Lone Madrone, Opolo, SLO Cider,

Stilson Cellars, Tooth & Nail, Wild Fields Brewery and many more. There was even an art wall timeline for everyone attending to paint that featured the 25-year history of the fest. Twenty-seven years ago, Atascadero local Barbie Butz helped organize the first Lakeside Wine Festival. Originally named “Cabernet and Cousins,” the inaugural committee’s goal was to put Atascadero on CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

CALIFORNIA — Farmers up and down California are once again facing an uncertain season ahead of them as a state water curtailment order issued in August 2021 continues to take its toll on farming and ranching families. In July 2021, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order calling a drought emergency and asking for water conservation. Soon after, farmers and ranchers in California received curtailment orders from the California Water Board (CWB) to either immediately or prepare to suspend their senior water rights. Water rights are a complicated and century-long system that farmers and ranchers are all too familiar with — because

water is their lifeline. A water right is a legal entitlement authorizing water to be diverted from a specified source and put to beneficial, nonwasteful use. Water rights are property rights, but their holders do not own the water itself. They possess the right to use it. However, one cannot sell water rights without selling the land attached to it. In June 2022, Newsom announced a $1.5 billion proposal to use taxpayer money to buy out farmers’ water senior rights to benefit endangered fish species in the state. California Farm Water Coalition (CFWC) Executive Director Mike Wade, who is familiar with the proposal, expressed concern that buying the water right means farmers would have to sell the land attached to the water right. Selling their water right could mean a permanent end to the farms and ranches attached to it. CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

Farmers Preparing for State Water Curtailment Orders UN leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ from global food shortage

ATASCADERO—The Atascadero City Council met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, June 28, at 6 p.m. The hybrid meeting was held in the City Council Chambers and preceded the council’s 5 p.m. closed session. The night’s agenda and the consent calendar both passed unanimously at the start of the meeting. During Community Forum, Frank Rimkus, CEO and co-founder of Galaxy Theatres and the managing partner of Galaxy Theatre Atascadero, addressed the council. The Galaxy Theatre operator announced on Thursday, June

23, that they would be vacating the Atascadero theater location end of the day, and the theater has been closed since. “I came up here today for really one reason, and that is to address all of you and say thank you,” said Rimkus. “It’s bittersweet that we’re leaving. We’re not leaving because of our decisions, but other decisions. But I would say reflecting on a positive note, we’ve had 11 years of a wonderful experience here in Atascadero with the people. We made a lot of friends, we’ve got a lot of stories, we’ve got a lot of support. I want you to know we really appreciate the love and the support for that theatre over the years.” Rimkus went on to say that the city has a theater that is a landmark that is well known; he also added that the theater is still in good condition and usable. The Sanborn Theatres family cinema business will replace Galaxy Theatre as operator. Sanborn Theatres is a local operator that also runs the Downtown Centre Cinemas in San Luis Obispo.

Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services Hosts Camp Cinder

The five-day camp that teaches teenage girls about firefighting makes a stop in town By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — Teenage girls ages 14-18 from all over Southern California came to the Central Coast to participate in Camp Cinder from Wednesday, June 22, through Sunday, June 26. The five-day/four-night firefighting camp included a stop at Atascadero’s Fire Station 1 on the afternoon of Friday, June 24. There the group of 20 girls participated in climbing the 100-foot ladder on Atascadero Aerial Ladder Truck 7545. “They [the girls] stay in the Cal Poly dorms, and we take them out to different stations over the week and introduce them to basic firefighting skills, showing them that this is something that they too could do,” said the Director of Camp Cinder and Cal Fire SLO Fire Captain Eva Grady. The camp, which is led by female firefighters, and created for girls interested in the field, was developed by Cal Fire Fire Captain April Mangles. With fundraising and a team of local firefighters, Mangles put on the first Camp Cinder in both 2014 and 2015. The camp, which was supposed to take place in 2020, has officially made its return after a seven-year hiatus.

“This is the first year Cal Fire has adopted the program and sponsored it,” added Grady. The girls learned about things like structure fires, personal protective equipment, ladders, handling fire hoses, and the tools used while fighting woodland and structural fires. The campers also learned about surf rescue, helicopter rescue, and extracting people out of automobiles. The female instructors for Camp Cinder came from all over California, while the campers came to San Luis Obispo County from Southern California. Another sector of Camp Cinder takes place up in Shasta and caters to the teenage girls interested in firefighting in the North-

ern half of California. “I have to brag about my staff because they are incredible firefighters from all over the place,” Grady said. “This is the first time that we’ve come together. Just being around such a diverse group of women in the fire service has been amazing. And the campers are pretty cool too. They are great.” Camp Cinder and the female firefighters behind it are already making plans to host the camp again next year. They also hope they will be able to expand the activities that campers will be able to participate in. “What’s really fun is, the staff, it’s something that we all wish we had when we were young

ladies trying to figure out what we were going to do with our lives. There’s such a time investment to even get to where you can apply for a job in firefighting. It takes a lot, and this gives girls a little taste of it and a little confidence that ‘hey, you have a place in the fire services too,’” concluded Grady.

Circus Vargas Returns to San Luis Obispo With ‘Express’ There are still two weekends for you to catch the show By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Circus Vargas pulled into town last weekend and will be making the Madonna Inn Meadows its home until July 11. The family-friendly circus has been coming back to San Luis Obispo (SLO) for the

last 11 years. “We are coming with a brand new show, just like we do every year. This year’s called the Circus Vargas Express,” said Katya Quiroga, who co-owns Circus Vargas with her husband, Nelson. “We have a team that ... you know how the circus got started and traveled from town to town in the old days. So, a big train would come in, and you’ll see that train when the show starts, [it] comes in and picks up the artists and brings them from

town to town and then sets up the tent and presents a fantastical, amazing show.” Circus Vargas, which has existed for over 52 years, brings audiences magic, electrifying performances, and class acts from all over the world. “We have a group from Romania, an acrobatic teeter-board act; we have a juggling act from Czech Republic, we have the flying trapeze, the fan favorites, contortionists, we have the motorcycles in the cage. This time it’s three motorcycles, so that’s more than we’ve ever had before,” added Quiroga. “We scout the acts from around the world. So, we visit circuses around the world, and we look at something we like, and we bring them here for different tourists. Every year we have new performers and new ideas. Every year we also have a new theme. I guess that’s one of the fun parts of circus.” The show is a two-hour-long performance that’s jam-packed with exciting visuals, beautiful costumes, comedy, and talented acts that bring the house down. Atascadero News was invited to opening night and immensely enjoyed their time watching the show. Circus Vargas is an animalfree circus, and most acts perform to instrumental versions of popular songs. “Definitely, this year is one of the best with one of the biggest casts we ever had,” Quiroga said. “We have over 30 people in our performance. And

we’re really excited to be able to bring this.” Katya and Nelson have been running Circus Vargas for the last 16 years, but their history with the circus doesn’t start there. Both sets of the Quirogas’ parents were brought to America to perform in Circus Vargas in the 1980s, which is where Katya and Nelson met. They’ve been married for over 30 years and have three daughters. “Of course, it [Circus Vargas] is a business, it’s a company, but more than anything, it’s a family,” Katya Quiroga said. “We’re all family here on the show. Even the ones that are not blood-related, we’re like family to each other. And that’s the beauty of the circus, and that is what makes life so amazing is to have that family feeling. You know, being like a little city that travels around without a zip code.” In 2021, San Luis Obispo was the first town that Circus Vargas opened up in after the pandemic, and they’re excited to be back a year later. “Thanks to our fans that we’re still here after the pandemic and that we’re able to come back again every year,” concluded Quiroga. You can catch Circus Vargas at the Madonna Inn Meadows with multiple showtimes through July 11. For showtimes and more info, go to circusvargas.com/

Shelter Manager Is An ECHO Success Story Matt Navarette and his family got a lift up from nonprofit; now he helps those in the same situation STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) has many success stories to share and occasionally, an exceptional story comes to light. Matt Navarrete is one such story. The Navarrete family was like any typical family ... until crime moved into their neighborhood. A young family, Matt and Miriam, were expecting their third child when the neighborhood became unsafe for them. Matt’s mother made the offer that they temporarily move in with her until they could get on their feet again. When the property owner found out two families were living in the house, he gave an ultimatum that someone moves out. Matt and Miriam made the difficult decision to split up, Matt would stay with a friend in Atascadero and continue to look for work. Miriam’s mother offered that she and the children move in with her in Los Angeles until they were able to find their own housing. While working temporary jobs and living on his friend’s couch, Matt began searching for stable, permanent work. He found a paid internship at ECHO through a workforce development program, and it was here that he learned he could bring Miriam and their children to ECHO to enter the 90-day program to restart their lives. “It was never my plan to end up homeless, especially with a newborn, but it just wasn’t safe in our neighborhood anymore, and we had nowhere to go to stay together,” he said. After a few months, Matt was able to secure full-time employment, and the family moved into a three-bedroom apartment.

“We were so happy to have our own place,” he said. “It was such a feeling of relief to know that we were going to make it, we had a roof over our heads and food on the table, and we are so thankful for the ECHO program. I don’t know what we would have done without it.” And where is the Navarrete family now? Miriam works in Paso Robles, and the kids are happy and attend Atascadero schools. As for Matt, well, he decided he wanted to help others and is now the shelter manager at ECHO, Paso Robles. Matt’s story is an inspiration to all that come through the doors seeking help. ECHO operates shelters in Atascadero and Paso Robles to meet the immediate needs of families and individuals who have become homeless. With a unique residency program, clients are provided case management services to assist them in securing a job and finding permanent and sustainable housing within three months of entering the shelter program. While enrolled in the program, clients are taught life skills for employment, budgeting, health care management and social communication and interaction. The goal and the result of this practical support is the empowerment of residents to move in a positive direction while assisting them in acquiring the skills and services they need to become self-sustaining, including secure housing. A force of 1,500 community volunteers provides ancillary support to run the shelters and a meal program that serves as many as 140 dinners each night to both shelter residents and the homeless population. ECHO also operates a shower program that provides hot showers three nights a week to anyone in need. ECHO supplies all the necessary toiletries and offers access to clothing, blankets, sleeping bags and much needed footwear.

ATASCADERO — More than $4,500,000 has been contributed this year by members of Elks Lodges throughout California and Hawaii to be used in treating children with disabilities. Susan Marple, Exalted Ruler of Atascadero, Lodge #2733 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, contributed $16,654.00 which was raised by the members of the Lodge. “We are pleased and proud that members of our local Elks Lodge were so generous with their dollars and time in this important undertaking,” Marple said.

out California and Hawaii have turned over more than $131,000,000 to the California‐Hawaii Elks Major Project, Inc., which administers the nonprofit charitable corporation. All of the funds are devoted solely to providing vision screening and therapy treatment to children with a broad

First 5 SLO County Funds Family Support Counseling Program With Contract

MP Health offering free bilingual counseling for parents and caregivers with children 6 and younger STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — First 5 San Luis Obispo County has awarded MP Health a $53,000 contract to provide free bilingual (English/Spanish) support counseling ser vices for parents and caregivers of children ages 6 years and under in San Luis Obispo County. The program originated as an emergency response effort to address stressors and emotional challenges prompted or amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic; it will now continue through at least June 2023.

“At First 5, we frequently hear that parents need someone to talk to about stress, life challenges, and other mental health issues, but the cost or access to this type of service is often out of reach for many of them. We hope this program will be a support for all parents, but especially those most in need,” said First 5 SLO County Executive Director Wendy Wendt. “This funding reflects our commitment to providing equitable services to help support family resilience.” MP Health is based in Santa Barbara County and has a satellite office in Atascadero for in-person visits while also offering video sessions. MP Health provides a variety of mental health services to individuals and couples. The agency addresses a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, attachment disorders, and substance abuse. “We know that parenting is hard, and the last two years have made it even harder,” said MP Health Owner/Director

Silvia Wasjutin. “Our goal is to meet parents where they are at and give them the support they need to be able to take care of themselves and their families. Sometimes just having someone to talk to makes a big difference.” Any parent or caregiver with children under 6 years of age in SLO County seeking support can connect with MP Health at (805) 253-2547. About First 5 San Luis Obispo County First 5 is a proud leader in the collective effort to support young children, both at the state and local level.

After another delay on Monday, jury selection for Paul Flores began. More than 1,300 prospective jurors were screened the week of June 13. Voir dire, the jury selection process, resulted in approximately 270 for Paul’s jury pool and 120 for Ruben’s.

Throughout the jury selection, jurors were excused on various reason, many being the inability to be impartial. Each defendant will have 20 jurors. More pretrial motions are expected to be heard from July 6 through 8, with Ruben’s jury selection from July 11 to 15. Paul and Ruben Flores were arrested at their homes in April 2021, nearly 25 years after Smart’s disappearance.

CRIME

Paso Robles Pregnancy Center Vandalized

The center is believed to have been vandalized by a national extremist group By CAMILLE DEVAUL

PASO ROBLES — Following the Supreme Court of the United State’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, the Tree of Life Pregnancy Support Center in Paso Robles was vandalized early Saturday morning. The Paso Robles Police Department is currently investigating the vandalism, which is thought to have occurred between Friday night and Saturday morning.

Tree of Life is a pregnancy center with three locations in San Luis Obispo County. They offer free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, baby clothes and supplies, and post-abortion counseling. The center’s windows were broken and sprayed painted with the letters “JR,” believed to represent the pro-abortion group “Jane’s Revenge.” According to Paso Robles Police Department, Tree of Life received a letter from Jane’s Revenge. The group’s letter stated they intended to cause harm and damage to the Tree of Life pregnancy support center. Tree of Life was one of many pregnancy centers across the country recently targeted by the group. Jane’s Revenge is a new group

reportedly formed in May after information was leaked from a draft opinion for the Supreme Court case Dobbs V. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The leak revealed an oncoming overturn of Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, both of which granted a constitutional right to an abortion. On June 24, the court followed through with its decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, inciting the group to vandalize and commit arson at a pregnancy center in Colorado, a crime that is now being investigated by the FBI. The group is believed to be responsible for more vandalization at pregnancy centers across the United States. Jane’s Revenge is a reference to Jane

COUNTY NEWS

Collective, an underground organization founded by Heather Booth, who helped women obtain abortions prior to the Roe v. Wade decision. Authorities believe the vandalism is connected to the Superior Court’s overturn of Roe V. Wade. In the court’s overruling decision, it states the following: “Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act provides that “[e]xcept in a medical emergency or in the case of a severe fetal abnormality, a person shall not intentionally or knowingly perform . . . or induce an abortion of an unborn human being if the probable gestational age of the unborn human being has been determined to be greater than fifteen (15) weeks.” “The Constitution does not confer

a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.” Roe v. Wade was previously intended to limit the government’s restrictions on abortions. Now that the ruling is overturned, state governments now have the authority to allow, ban, or limit abortions. Police have not identified any of the suspects but will continue to patrol the area. Paso Robles Press has reached out to the Tree of Life Pregnancy Support Center for comment but have not received a response. This is a developing story that will be updated as more information becomes available.

News Briefs: North San Luis Obispo County

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY

Preliminary Election Workers Resume Counting Ballots San Luis Obispo County’s election workers resumed counting the 2022 preliminary election ballots on Wednesday, June 22, at 9 a.m. The Clerk-Recorder’s Office reported that were still approximately 24,440 ballots remaining to process and count. County Clerk-Recorder Elaina Caino describes the process as taking a significant amount of time since ballots have to be scanned to verify signatures and checked for identifiable marks or any damage to the election ballot. As of Wednesday, June 29, there are a total of 2,845 ballots left to count countywide. The next count will be on Friday, July 1. All ballots are on target to be counted no later than July 7, when official results will be announced. Sheriff’s Deputies Seeking Help Identifying Body San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office is seeking help from the public in identifying a male body found in Pismo Beach. On Jan. 13, the body of an unidentified adult male washed up on the shore near South Dolliver Street in Pismo Beach. The body had been in the water for an extended period of time. There were no obvious signs to indicate the death was criminal in nature. The body appears to be a White male with numerous tattoos. Tattoos of note include what appears to be a tulip and other tattoos on the left arm. The left ankle has what appears to be tattoos of flames and possibly the top of a high-rise building. A tragus piercing of the left ear with a purple hoop earring was also present. This death was investigated by the Pismo Beach Police Department and the Coroner’s Unit of the Sheriff ’s Office. If anyone has information on the man’s identity, contact the Coroner’s Office at (805) 781-4513. Woods Humane Society Offers Pet Fireworks Safety Tips With the Fourth of July holiday around the corner, Woods Humane Society is reminding the community to prepare to protect their pets from

the fireworks. “While fireworks are a fun display for humans, they’re often dreadful for pets,” says Woods Humane Society CEO Neil Trent, adding that some animal control officials report seeing as much as a 30 percent increase in lost pets over the holiday. “Cats and dogs have a much stronger sense of hearing than people do, so the explosive noises sound even louder to them, causing many pets to run away out of fear or to suffer from intense anxiety.” In order to help local pet owners proactively protect their pets in advance of the holiday, Woods has put together a list of Pet Fireworks Safety Tips, the first of which is to make sure pets have a collar with an ID tag on it as well as a microchip with up-todate registration information. Microchips are the size of a grain of rice and are implanted just under the skin of dogs and cats. Each microchip contains a unique code that can be easily scanned by a vet or an animal shelter employee and matched against an identification database online. “If a lost pet doesn’t have an identification tag, the microchip helps us to quickly reunite it with its family. At just $20, microchips are among the cheapest, easiest and best ways to safeguard our pets against the risk of homelessness and suffering as a stray,” says Trent, noting that pet owners can make an appointment to get their dogs or cats microchipped at both of Woods’ locations. In addition to microchips and ID tags, Woods recommends following these Pet Fireworks Safety Tips: • Stay at home with pets and keep them indoors, in a safe, familiar environment • Secure all doors and windows • Drown out external noises and lights by playing the TV or radio and closing curtains • Make sure pets cannot harm themselves by chewing on unsafe household objects • Intermittently toss them treats to reinforce a more positive association with the noise • Consider using anxiety-reducing tools such as the Tellington Touch method or a Thundershirt • If your pets suffer from severe fireworks-induced anxiety, contact your vet in advance for recommendations regarding anti-anxiety medication To make a microchip appointment, call Woods SLO at (805) 543-9316 or Woods North County at (805)

Fireworks Prohibited in Atascadero The 4th of July is upon us, and so is fire season! Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services urges residents to observe a safe, legal and fire-free holiday. Residents are advised that all fireworks are illegal in the City of Atascadero, and officials warn that anyone caught lighting or possessing even “safe and sane” fireworks in the City will be cited and fined. Misdemeanor violations are punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment. In addition, anyone found responsible for setting a fire using any type of fireworks will be responsible to pay for property damage and suppression costs and may be charged with a felony. This liability also applies to parents of juveniles found responsible for causing a fire. The sale and possession of fireworks are illegal in most of SLO County, but there are exceptions. “Safe & sane” fireworks, which do not fly or explode, are allowed in the following communities: • Unincorporated areas of San Miguel, Templeton & Oceano, only within their respective community services districts. • “Safe & sane” fireworks are legal in Arroyo Grande & Grover Beach. • In Morro Bay, fireworks are only permitted at private residences, not at the beach or parks. “Due to our current drought, the threat of wildfire is at an all-time high, and everyone must do everything they can to help keep our community fire safety, including the upcoming 4th of July weekend,” said Chief Casey Bryson. Always doublecheck with your local community before using fireworks. For more information about where fireworks are permitted, visit ca-fireworks. presskit247.com/content/content-article.asp?ArticleID=508 Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services wishes the community a memorable 4th of July and requests a safe, common-sense celebration. The City encourages anyone possessing fireworks to turn them in to their local fire department without fear of penalty or prosecution so that they may be safely disposed of properly.

A

tascadero All Comers has been going strong since its start in the summer of 2000. Harry Mara and Dina Coppo created this event where elite athletes, along with beginners and experienced athletes from ages 3 to 103, compete to better themselves, set records, and join others with the same goals. Atascadero All Comers provides a positive environment with lots of fun and camaraderie. Our volunteers are amazing people who love this healthy family activity and come back year after year to be a part of it and encourage all who participate. My husband, Keith/K-Man, and I have had the pleasure of taking over the management of this event about ten years ago. And what a wonderful adventure it has been. The great thing about these track meets is that there is an event for everyone. You can throw a “shot” (kind of like a heavy baseball), jump into a sand pit or over a bar, or run short or far! The most inspiring and entertaining event is the “kids hurdles.” You just have to come and see it for yourselves. And all the while, there are amazing spectators cheering you on, no matter what place you finish in. Performing in the warm summer evening or into the night under the lights is a good time for everyone. And our snack bar will be open to keep you energized for the next event. We have watched kids who started with our youth division grow into great High School and Collegiate athletes. Participants who no longer compete often become volunteers because of the fami-

CRIME

Former Bookkeeper to Pay Over Pismo Beach Man Facing Potential Life Sentence $1 Million in Restitution Ginger Mankins is sentenced to 10 years in state prison for embezzlement charges STAFF REPORT

ARROYO GRANDE — San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow announced on Monday, June 27, that former Arroyo Grande resident Ginger Lee Mankins (DOB 11/30/64) has been ordered to pay restitution to Rick Machado Livestock in the amount of $1,304,524. On September 1, 2021, Mankins pleaded guilty to six counts of felony embezzlement involving two victim businesses: Rick Machado Livestock and B&D Farms. The theft occurred roughly 10 year, from mid-2007 to January 2018. On October 13, 2021, San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Jacquelyn Duffy sentenced Mankins to 10 years in state prison on the plea describing the impact of Mankins’ crime as “a

tremendous loss and violation of trust.” At Monday’s restitution hearing, Superior Court Judge Denise DeBelleFeuille stated that Machado Livestock should be “made whole” for its losses, noting Mankins’ “spectacular betrayal of trust.” Testimony at the restitution hearing demonstrated that Mankins embezzled $3,440,205 between May 2007 and January 2018 from Machado Livestock and caused further losses to the business in the amount of $811,317. At the hearing evidence was also presented that Mankins and her husband repaid $2,947,000, leaving $1,304,524 owed to Machado Livestock. “Embezzlement committed by employees in positions of trust are especially devastating, particularly when it involves staggering amounts of stolen funds over such an extended period of time,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “This 10-year prison sentence and order to repay more than $1,300,000 of stolen funds affirms that

Jury found Todd Hortillosa guilty on 10 counts of sex crimes STAFF REPORT

GINGER LEE MANKINS (58) those who steal from our business community will face aggressive prosecution in San Luis Obispo County.” Restitution was not ordered for the second victim of embezzlement, B&D Farms, as a final accounting has yet to be completed. A hearing to determine losses suffered by B&D Farms has been set for October 5, 2022. The case was investigated by the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations with the aid of the Arroyo Grande Police Department and was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Michael Frye assigned to the District Attorney’s Special Prosecutions Unit that includes both Major Fraud and Public Integrity.

PISMO BEACH — San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow announced on Tuesday, June 28, that a jury found Todd Anthony Hortillosa (44) of Pismo Beach guilty on 10 counts of sex crimes against three children occurring over a nineyear period. A San Luis Obispo County jury found Pismo Beach resident Todd Anthony Hortillosa (DOB 12/13/1977) guilty on 10 counts of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 14 years involving three separate victims. The jury also found true that Hortillosa’s crimes involved multiple victims under the age of 14, a finding that provides for a potential life sentence.

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 victim. “ 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 District Attorney Dan Dow. “Sexual abuse of children is a horrific betrayal of trust that causes great harm to its victims. We will always do everything within our power to hold child predators accountable to the maximum extent possible.” A sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 15, at 8:30 a.m. in Department 5 of the San Luis Obispo County

TODD ANTHONY HORTILLOSA (44)

Superior Court, the Honorable Judge Craig van Rooyen presiding. Hortillosa faces a potential sentence of 120 years to life, plus two years eight months, in prison for his crimes. 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.

Enhancing Cognitive Functioning

DANIEL RICH COMMENTARY

M

any experts agree that the more people challenge themselves, the less likely they will be faced with cognitive decline. The experts specifically suggest that anything that encourages a person to think in new and different ways may help to fight cognitive decline. There are many ways to be challenged. Of course, this should be tailored to the individual, building on their particular interests, abilities, and strengths. Examples include taking up

Letter from Linda Campeggi Dear Editor, Thank you for printing the letter from Linda Campeggi in your June 22 issue of The Paso Robles Press. She succinctly summed up her opinion on the major issues of the moment. I believe that it is the duty of a newspaper to inform its readers of the various opinions on important issues of the time. I don’t believe a newspaper should promote its own agenda exclusively, and I applaud you for including Ms. Campeggi’s response to an “opinion” by Mr. Al Fonzi. Gretchen Gray, Paso Robles Bridging the Divide Dear Editor, While the ideological divide between Right and Left seems as deep as the ocean and just as hard to bridge, in terms of personal health care, we all seem to want the same thing. We want respect for our decisions, we want government to stay out of our affairs, and we want to be treated as adults with bodily sovereignty. The divide emerges only when we claim these rights for ourselves while denying them for others. And whether you’re on the Right or the Left, don’t kid yourself; your side is also to blame. Bodily autonomy and freedom of choice were bedrocks of my old alliance to the Left. As a college freshman, I marched on Washington DC for a NOW rally as a college Freshman with a bus load of students chanting “My Body My Choice.” I myself had an abortion at 19 and am grateful for the ease of care I received, which was seamless and without regret. I am devastated for all those young women who, like my little sister, fall prey to older boys, and find themselves pregnant but now will be denied the choice, respect, and dignity that comes with being the master of our own fate. Despite my steadfast belief in the right of women to control their own destinies, I have been

drawing, painting, playing a musical instrument, gardening, cooking, photography, or studying a foreign language. Anything that expands your horizons encourages you to think, plan and act in new ways. Joining a group book club, meeting, and discussing books or articles combines both social interactions as well as intellectual stimulation. Enrolling in your local junior college or university and taking courses is potentially enriching. Some courses can be taken without actually receiving course credits. There are typically a wide variety of available courses; reviewing the school’s catalogs would be a starting point in learning what is available. Other approaches to obtaining intellectual stimulation and being helpful to others would be to volunteer at your local continuation

ostracized by the Left for having daring to believe in My Body My Choice unequivocally, and not just as a slogan for certain circumstances. Many in my community are a natural fit with the Left, yet we’ve been demonized and kicked to the curb for demanding those same rights the Left has been advocating for all along. Sensing a promising realignment, the Right has embraced our cause, extending a hearty welcome to those abandoned by the Left. In California, and across the nation, many on the Right have seized the opportunity to grow their ranks by affirming this particular tenant of bodily autonomy, which includes the right to refuse unwanted medical treatment, including vaccination. This position fits neatly with their notion of limited government, which sadly stops at the door to the OB/GYN. The esteemed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was outspoken about the weakness inherent in the Roe decision, which was based, not on the equal protection clause or on the natural rights of a woman to bodily autonomy but on a doctor’s freedom to practice. While many on the Left rage against the Right for challenging and finally overturning that Federal decision, they should understand that the Left has also been busy digging a grave for the privacy precedent. A case in point is the far-Left California legislature, which is right now pushing bills to weaken that right to medical privacy by creating vaccine registries and mandatory vaccine reporting and by writing laws to censor and criminalize what a doctor says in private to their patient if it goes against the Leftist narrative. How is that those people shouting the loudest for bodily autonomy with regard to abortion are often the most strident supporters of vaccine mandates? This position is confused at best, and hypocritical, selfish and discriminatory at worst. We either have sovereignty over our own bodies or we don’t. It’s for

or high school. For example, I used to assist middle school students in their computer lab. The main point is to be challenged and stimulated. So, for example, I have tried learning different types of computer operating systems and different types of cameras to that end. One source suggests that instead of new hobbies or activities, just do more of what you love, which can be as simple as reading daily newspapers or playing Monopoly or similar games with your children or grandchildren. It has been pointed out that there are both physical and mental benefits of regular exercise. The suggestion is to participate in outdoor activities, such as taking up walking, hiking, sailing, golfing, or off-road mountain biking. In addition, regular exercise, even simply walking, can result in

thinking improvement in just months. In my opinion, there is one common denominator in all of the activities listed in the beginning of this article. That is risk-taking, the right kind of risk-taking. When I talk about risk, I do not mean bungee jumping or driving recklessly. What I mean is taking the risk of trying something new or looking at things in a new way. This means taking the risk of being involved in the unfamiliar or even taking the risk of failure. But, in my opinion, those risks pale in comparison to the potential benefits of not only enriching your life, but potentially minimizing cognitive decline. But with taking risks also comes the satisfaction of trying new things, learning new skills, or simply viewing the world in different ways. It means getting out of the

Letters to the Editor the “public good” they say, yet even the CDC now acknowledges that Covid-19 injections don’t prevent infection or transmission and are mainly for personal protection. Maybe they believe that people should be coerced to take the injection for their own good. Keep in mind that there are many on the Right who believe a ban on abortion is really in the best interests of women. From the perspective of bodily sovereignty, both arguments are self-serving and fail to represent the whole story. Thanks to the recent SCOTUS decisions, thousands of women will lose access to reproductive health care. Thanks to leaders on the Left, thousands of women already have. For the crime of declining a vaccination, they’ve been denied essential medical services and refused access to loved ones in hospitals across the nation. Thousands more have been fired, kicked out of school and denied entry to private and public institutions due to personal health care choices. Such treatment is not compassionate, equitable or inclusive––all words the Left loves to throw around when it suits their agenda, but are just as ready to abandon when it does not. At this point, the Right and Left are 2 sides of the same coin. Both sides want to restrict somebody else’s right to make their own medical decisions. Both sides believe in the moral superiority of their positions. Both believe they are saving lives with their bans and mandates. Right now, I am joined by a growing crowd of people with a foot on both shores, striving to balance while straddling that huge divide. We feel the righteous anger of the Left, many in disbelief that their daughters and granddaughters are losing fundamental rights enjoyed for fifty years. We also stand firm with those on the Right who decry the recent obliteration of fundamental human rights enjoyed by generations of Americans for over a hundred years. These rights include the right to work and support one’s family free from government intrusion

into private health care decisions, as well the right of equal access to public services and institutions without sharing confidential medical information. Now imagine if those on the Left and Right could bridge this divide by supporting bodily sovereignty in all its forms. Not just part-time and in some instances, but almost always, for all. It may be uncomfortable to affirm the bodily sovereignty of others when we ourselves would make different choices, but it is essential if we are to continue as free people in a free society. Just as the old adage goes, “united we stand, divided we fall.” United, we oust politicians on the Right and Left who seek to divide us into those with rights and those without. United, we stop the assault on fundamental freedoms barreling down on us from both the Right and the Left. United, we are unstoppable. United, we win. Nicole Dorfman, Paso Robles Right to Life Group Rejoices Following Dobbs Ruling Dear Editor, For pro-life supporters in the Central Coast, the ruling by the Supreme Court on June 24 that overturned its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision brings thankful rejoicing and renewed dedication to helping mothers-to-be and protecting innocent lives. The decision in the Dobbs case struck down Roe’s outrageous invention of a nationwide constitutional right to kill babies in the womb and later supporting decisions. The Dobbs ruling returned decisions on protecting preborn life and the degree of protection to each state. In a country founded on the truth that we are all endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights including the right to life, Roe’s stripping the right to life from the unborn was a travesty of justice. That heinous decision has caused the nearly unthinkable loss of 63 million innocent unborn babies in our country. The decision overturning Roe is an answer to prayer and work by countless pro-life activists for

rut of doing things the way that you always have. It means being flexible and open-minded. It also means that there is some risk of missteps or even failures. But in the end, experiencing life in new and different ways not only keeps you sharp and focused, but can be both rewarding and exciting. Besides the previously mentioned activities, it has been suggested that there are both physical and mental benefits of regular exercise. It has been suggested to participate in outdoor activities, which could include walking, hiking, sailing, golfing, or off-road mountain biking. In addition, regular exercise, even simply walking, can result in improved thinking in just months. Strength training is also beneficial because it is not the only exercise that can improve thinking, but it can also mini-

mize the risk of falling. Besides regular exercise, it has been suggested that a Mediterranean style of diet, including eating at least two servings of fish a week, such as salmon, helps to slow cognitive decline. Additionally, note that excessive alcohol consumption has been linked to cognitive decline. Writing this article was one example of risk-taking. I was taking the risk of being seen as being stupid or not presenting anything valuable. On the other hand, if anyone finds this article meaningful or helpful, then this has been rewarding for me and worthwhile for the readers. Your comments or reactions are welcomed.

nearly five decades, a cause for joy and heartfelt thanksgiving to God. In spite of misunderstandings, however, the Dobbs decision does not outlaw abortion and does not change California state laws. California already conscripts taxpayer money for abortions through its MediCal program, and has some of the most pro-abortion laws in the country. Now Gov. Gavin Newsom and many legislators are trying to add even more. In response, those of us who seek to protect the preborn in California are rededicating ourselves to educating the public on the cruel reality of what abortion is and also to helping mothers (and fathers) shocked by unexpected pregnancies to choose life. Abortion supporters never bring up that at the moment a preborn life begins in the womb, a unique new human being is formed. By the sixth week, the heart starts to beat and by the 12th week, the unborn child can open and close fingers, make sucking motions, and has taken on the human form in all relevant aspects. Abortion advocates who say they support “reproductive health” and “abortion care” hide the ugly reality that such “care” means cruelly killing an innocent life in the womb. Gov. Gavin Newsom aims to turn California into an abortion magnet, and the Legislature is considering several deplorable bills to encourage more abortions. Assembly Bill 1918 would use taxpayer money to train abortionists. An extremely concerning bill is AB 2223, which pro-life activists fear could allow infanticide of babies born alive after surviving abortion. Both these bills passed the Assembly and are now in the Senate. Two other dreadful bills, which originated in the Senate and passed that body, are now in the Assembly. Senate Bill 1142 would use taxpayer money to help groups pay expenses to bring people to the state to kill their preborn children. Senate Constitutional Amendment 10

would turn killing babies in the womb into a constitutional right in California. If it passes in the Assembly by a two-thirds vote by June 30, it will go to voters in November. Area residents can contact Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (northern Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo County), Sen. Monique Limon (Santa Barbara County), and Sen. John Laird (San Luis Obispo County) to oppose these outrageous bills. Why is it that when people call themselves pro-choice, the choice they are eager to help pregnant moms make is death for their preborn children? We in the pro-life movement want to help each mother choose to be a life-giver and to protect the life of her preborn—to help and protect two lives at once. Advocates for life have long sought to help pregnant moms and new moms (and dads) in tough situations through a broad network of pregnancy resource centers in California. These centers provide a wide range of compassionate, confidential services, nearly always free of charge. Typical offerings include pregnancy tests, ultrasounds of preborn babies (at some centers), counseling, pre-parenting and parenting classes, and baby diapers and clothes. Many centers provide adoption referrals and after-abortion support. In the Central Coast area, pregnancy resource centers operate in towns including Santa Maria, Lompoc, Grover Beach, San Luis Obispo, Atascadero, and Paso Robles. These donor-funded centers aim to spread love and life by helping moms and dads choose life for their little ones. A sign of hope: California has more pregnancy support centers than abortion clinics. This statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling June 24, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was issued by the Board of Directors of Right to Life of the Central Coast, a Santa Maria-based nonprofit group that aims to educate and advocate for the sanctity of life at all ages.

also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.

If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (877) 440-4460 or visit this Internet Web site https:// mkconsultantsinc.com/ trustees-sales/, using the file number assigned to this case 22-6066. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Notice To Tenant: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (877) 440-4460, or visit this internet website https://mkconsultantsinc.com/trustees-sales/, using the file number assigned to this case 22-6066 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

The Word Never Heard

I

hated it when the word “Farmer” was taken out of the name “Future Farmers of America.” The organization is still known as the FFA, but the “F” word (Farmer) was eliminated. I suppose they had to do it. After all, not many kids want to be farmers these days, and I suppose it would make fundraising easier. But it still irks me a little because I worked so hard to become one ... a farmer, I mean. For the first 10 years of my life, I was a town kid. Then we bought The Farm, a one-acre spread on the outskirts of the Lemon Capital Of The World. Oh, but it was a very productive acre! My first farming venture was to plant 76 tomato plants in an area the size of our kitchen table. With just one acre of

ground, I had to make maximum use of the space available. So I raised rabbits in double-decker cages and grew orchids under the avocado trees. The orchids did better than the rabbits who lived on the bottom floor. On that one acre, I raised Grand Champion steers, registered Angus heifers, and always had a couple of lambs in the fattening process. The only real problem came when I attempted to raise a hog, and that wouldn’t have been a problem if my mom wasn’t a seamstress and if the hog would have stayed in her pen. The hog, who we called Pancakes, had the unfortunate habit of breaking out of her pen and popping out of the bushes about the time some elegant lady would come to the house for a fitting. The hog, by the way, got her name because the only way we could herd it back into the pen was for my mother to lure her in with a batch of her delicious pancakes. My mother put up with the pig, fed my steers when I was

gone, and drove the truck on FFA Roadside Clean-up because she wanted me to have every chance of fulfilling my dream of becoming a farmer. Kids at school ridiculed me by calling me the “F word,” and even some of my relatives cracked farmer jokes and were embarrassed that I wanted to be a farmer. Why couldn’t I be like my brother and go to West Point? Maybe grow up to be president someday. They must not have known that more farmers have been president of this country than any other profession except lawyers. And I think we might be a better country today if more farmers had been president and fewer lawyers. I ate, breathed, and slept farming and ranching. And it darned near killed me. On my way to becoming a farmer/rancher, I fell over a 100-foot cliff in a truck and horse trailer. I almost burned to a crisp, I got bucked off a horse and landed head first in a rock pile, and I got stuck in a pub in Australia where the

only thing they had to eat was chicken. Everybody said a town kid could never make it in farming or ranching without a sizable inheritance or without owning land. But I did. It is the one thing in my life that I am most proud of. But when I finally made it to be a farmer, somebody decided that wasn’t a very noble title. We were now agribusinessmen or some other long name that just meant farmer or rancher. The word “farmer” had outgrown itself and had outlived its usefulness. It was the word never heard, to be whispered in mixed company ... Shhhhhhhh! And so, they took the word “Farmer” out of the FFA. The “F” is still in the name, but it’s silent, like a silent vowel. And it doesn’t stand for anything. In this day and age, that seems ironic, doesn’t it?

I can’t thank them enough for the hours they put in to make the event successful. Of course, we had a fantastic team of volunteers who put in the time before, during, and after the event, and we could not have done it without their help. The goal of the first committee 27 years ago was to put Atascadero on the map with a wine festival that would bring people to our community to see that we are more than a “bedroom community.” I feel that we reached our goal by having over 1,000 attendees enjoying a beautiful evening in Atascadero in our “Norman Rockwell” park, by our sparkling lake, strolling through our zoo, and tasting some of the best wines, brews, and spirits in the country. This week’s recipes are in the “spirit” of the festival. Fellow festival volunteer Atascadero Mayor Heather Moreno and I took a break and visited Willow Creek Distillery for a tasting of some of their hand-crafted spirits.

ne of the most familiar parts of the Book of Exodus is chapter 20, which records Moses receiving the ten commandments from the Lord Jehovah. These commandments are a very small part of what is called the “Mosaic Covenant.” This covenant was only given to the nation of Israel and was the basis of God’s blessings for the nation of Israel as they would enter the promised land. It is theologically called a “conditional” covenant. God’s treatment of Israel, whether it be blessing or cursing, was conditioned upon Israel’s obedience to the laws stated in the covenant.

The Law was never given as a means of obtaining salvation from sin. The sacrifices in Leviticus provided an atonement for sin. God’s blessing or cursing would be bestowed based on either obedience or disobedience to God’s laws. The laws of God were a manifestation of His holy character and, when observed, would bring happiness and well-being. The Law contained 613 commandments, and God expected His people to live by those laws in their daily life. The Law of God was divine in that it was a supernatural impartation of truth to man which he could not otherwise know. The Law was a divine revelation of the word of God, which God made known in written words both what He wanted to say and what He wanted Israel to know. This law is called the “Pentateuch,” which means five books. The Jews called the five books

“The Torah,” which means the Law. The Pentateuch covers the historical time from the creation of man to the death of Moses. In Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5, Moses, who was the author of the Pentateuch, wrote the 10 Commandments. The ten commandments were also called the “decalogue,” meaning ten sayings. The decalogue was a brief summary of how God expected to be treated and how He expected people to treat other people. The first four laws stated what a believer’s relationship to God should be. The Lord is the only true God that is to be worshipped, and no idol is to be made and worshipped. The Lord’s name is not to be used in a vain or unholy way, and the seventh day of the week is to be a time of rest (Sabbath) in which the Lord is to be worshipped. Working on the Sabbath was punishable by death. The next six

laws stated what a believer’s relationship to other people should be like. These laws involved honoring parents, protecting human life, honoring marriage, not stealing, not slandering, and not coveting. In Romans 7:12, the apostle Paul stated that these laws were holy, just, and good. When God’s laws were obeyed, they caused people to be happy and dwell in peace and harmony with both God and man. Lessons to be Learned 1. God has revealed in the Bible how He expects people to behave and live. 2. Only the Lord-Jehovah is to be worshipped as the one True God. 3. Treating People according to God’s laws will promote happiness, peace, and harmony.

July 4, 1776, America’s Independence Day By HAYLEY MATTSON

E

ach year as we head into summer, we look forward to celebrating the Fourth of July, America’s Independence Day, with friends and family. We have so many options to celebrate the day, from BBQs and camps on the beaches, annual parades, concerts in the parks, and, of course, fireworks. Our day is filled with laughter, joy, and lots of sunshine, and at the end of the day, we take a moment to remember why we are all celebrating and why we love America, the home of the red, white, and blue. The Fourth of July traditions of Independence Day celebrations go back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. Amid the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence on July 2, 1776.Two days later, delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historical document like none other drafted by Thomas Jefferson that would shape the nation we are today. The Revolutionary War began in 1775, arising from growing tensions between residents of Great Britain’s 13 North American colonies and the colonial government, which represented the British crown. Tension between British troops and colonial militiamen in Lexington and Concord in April 1775 ignited the armed conflict. By the following summer, the rebels were waging a full-scale war for their independence. France entered the American Revolution on the side of the Americans in 1778, turning what had essentially been a civil war into an international conflict. After French assistance helped the Continental Army force the British to surrender at Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781, the Americans effectively won their independence, although

fighting did not formally end until 1783. The strained relationship between Americans and the British authorities began more than a decade before the outbreak of the American Revolution. The French and Indian War, or Seven Years’ War (1756-1763), brought new territories under the crown’s power, but the expensive conflict led to new and unpopular taxes. Attempts by the British government to raise revenue by taxing the colonies — notably the Stamp Act of 1765, the Townshend Acts of 1767, and the Tea Act of 1773 — were met with heated protest among the colonists, who resented their lack of representation in Parliament and demanded the same rights as other British subjects. In response, a group of colonial delegates (including George Washington of Virginia, John and Samuel Adams of Massachusetts, Patrick Henry of Virginia, and John Jay of New York) met in Philadelphia in September 1774 to voice their grievances against the British crown. This First Continental Congress did not go so far as to demand independence from Britain; however, it denounced taxation without representation, as well as the maintenance of the British army in the colonies without their consent. In addition, it issued a declaration of every citizen’s rights, including life, liberty, property, assembly, and trial by jury. The Continental Congress voted to meet again in May 1775 to consider further action, but by that time, violence had already broken out. On the night of April 18, 1775, hundreds of British troops marched from Boston to nearby Concord, Massachusetts, in order to seize an arms cache. Paul Revere and other riders sounded the alarm, and colonial militiamen began mobilizing to intercept the Redcoats. On April 19, local militiamen clashed with British soldiers in the Battles of Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts, marking the “shot

heard round the world” that signified the start of the Revolutionary War. When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical. By the middle of the following year, however, many additional colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in the bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published by Thomas Paine in early 1776. “Common Sense” was a pamphlet stating the argument in favor of American independence. Pamphlets were an important medium for spreading ideas and information in the 16th through 19th centuries. “Common Sense” played a remarkable role in transforming a colonial squabble into the American Revolution. On July 4, 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England, an event that eventually led to the formation of the United States of America. In a June 7 session in the Pennsylvania State House (later known as Independence Hall), Richard Henry Lee of Virginia presented a resolution with the famous words: “Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.” The 13 colonies included New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. It was those colonies that came together to form the United States of America. Though the movement for American indepen-

dence effectively triumphed at the Battle of Yorktown, contemporary observers did not see that as a decisive victory yet. British forces remained stationed around Charleston, and the powerful main army still resided in New York. Though neither side would take decisive action over the better part of the next two years, the British removal of their troops from Charleston and Savannah in late 1782 finally pointed to the end of the conflict. British and American negotiators in Paris signed preliminary peace terms in Paris late that November, and on September 3, 1783, Great Britain formally recognized the independence of the United States in the Treaty of Paris. At the same time, Britain signed separate peace treaties with France and Spain (which had entered the conflict in 1779), bringing the American Revolution to a close after eight long years. After the Revolutionary War, Americans continued to commemorate Independence Day every year in celebrations that allowed the new nation’s emerging political leaders to address citizens and create a feeling of unity. By the last decade of the 18th century, the two major political parties—the Federalist Party and Democratic-Republicans— that had arisen began holding separate Fourth of July celebrations in many large cities. As we look back on our history, we as Americans continue to fight for our independent freedoms. As history shows, we evolve, grow, and become better. At times, however, we can regress and move backward. As we celebrate our independence and that of our nation, we take a moment to reflect on what each of us can do to ensure our freedom continues for the next generation and what we are doing today to preserve it. We wish you a very safe and meaningful Independence Day.

4th of July Fun Returns to Santa Margarita By SIMONE SMITH

N

othing says Summertime in America more than a good old-fashioned 4th of July Celebration. Hot dogs, picnics, friends, families, and neighbors gather while enjoying the sounds of music, laughter, and the happy squealing of children playing games. The celebratory atmosphere has been missing from many areas around the country since the pre-covid 4th of July events of 2019. Happily, times have changed, and this year we have begun to see the return of more in-person events, including Independence Day celebrations. Santa Margarita residents are looking forwards to the return of 4th of July fun at the Santa Margarita Community Park.

On a brighter note, Santa Margarita has seen an influx of young new families who are certainly in for a treat with this year’s festivities! Be sure to arrive early, wear sunscreen, bring chairs and water, and prepare for fun. Although this year there is no official parade planned, you never know what the creative and fun-loving residents of Santa Margarita might do on their way to the park… The 4th of July festivities at the Santa Margarita Park will go from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. As a reminder, fireworks are prohibited as fire danger is high. However, you are welcome to attend one of the many legal firework shows throughout the county.

Along with many areas of the country, Santa Margarita has seen a pretty significant change in residents over the past two years, with covid affecting job availability, the cost of living, and making telecommuting a new reality, shaking up how and where people work and live.

the map with a wine festival that would bring people to the community. To celebrate the festival’s success this year, Butz created two cocktails using liquors featured at the festival from

Willow Creek Distillery. Those recipes can be found in her column on page A12. “The addition of a live painting by fine artist Patrick Dennis, an art wall, and the opportunity to paint a wine glass as a fun souvenir was well received,” said Josh Cross, Atascadero Chamber of Commerce CEO.

CITY COUNCIL CONTINUED FROM A1

Also during Community Forum, people asked what would happen with their Galaxy Theatre gift cards. Mayor Heather Moreno stated that the city has no jurisdiction over gift cards and that the matter would need to be dealt with through Galaxy. She then gave out a number at the end of the meeting. The number for people to contact is (888) 407-9874.

WATER CUTBACKS CONTINUED FROM A1

There are several different forms or levels of water rights one can possess. Senior water rights holders are those who established the water claim before 1914, when California created its formal water rights system. There are also appropriative and riparian water rights. Riparian rights refer to the use of naturally flowing water such as land touching a lake, river, or stream. An appropriative right exists regardless of the land’s relationship to the water. An appropriative right is generally based upon physical control and beneficial use of the water. The emergency curtailment orders issued on Aug. 3, 2021, by CWB required farmers in the Sacramento and San Joaquin river watersheds to immediately stop diverting water from waters and streams because the drought is rapidly depleting the California reservoirs and killing endangered species of fish. The curtailment orders are resulting in a significant economic impact with the loss of jobs and food, putting many in fear of an impending food shortage. According to data CFWC collected based on current drought conditions, water district’s supply availability, and curtailment orders, the state

The first public hearing of the night was Adopting Sewer Service Charges to be Added to the 2022-2023 Property Tax Rolls. On the May 10 meeting, the council passed a rate increase of approximately 18 percent to 19 percent. The City estimates it will collect $3,925,563 in sewer service charges for Fiscal Year 2022-2023. The draft resolution was adopted unanimously. The night’s second public hearing

is facing up to an estimated 691,000 acres of fallowed farm ground compared to 395,100 acres in 2021. The loss of farm grounds results in an estimated loss of nearly 25,000 jobs compared to just over 14,000 jobs lost in 2021. And that ends up leading to an estimated loss of nearly $3.5 billion from the economy. “It’s kind of a domino effect that ends up hurting rural communities,” says Wade. This year is looking no different for California farmers when it comes to water and food security. The drought still exists, and there are the added hindrances from the events in Ukraine — the world’s bread basket, iron, steel, and fertilizer supplier. And don’t forget inflation and the rise in gas prices. The idea of a food shortage is constantly on the minds of even world leaders, including U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, who warned on Friday of a “catastrophe” from a global food shortage. “ When we see things happening in eastern Europe with Ukraine and Russia and the pressure that it is putting on the global food supply, is it a good idea to be doing things in California to take land out of production?” asked Wade. Back in August 2021, farmers with riparian water rights in areas like Scott’s Valley near the Oregon border were asked to

But I would say reflecting on a positive note, we’ve had 11 years of a wonderful experience here in Atascadero with the people. We made a lot of friends, we’ve got a lot of stories, we’ve got a lot of support. I want you to know we really appreciate the love and the support for that theater over the years.” Following Rimkus’s comments, people asked what would happen with their Galaxy Theatre gift cards. Mayor Heather Moreno stated that the city has no jurisdiction over gift cards and that the matter would need to be dealt with

Live music by Erin and the Earthquakes set the perfect atmosphere for sipping and shopping in the serene setting by the lake. From the

was regarding the Del Rio Marketplace (AMND19-0063). The project, which is located on the corner of Del Rio Road and El Camino Real and will feature a Valley Fresh Market as the proposed hub. The zoning is commercial/retail, and the site is just over 11 acres. As the project was discussed, council members brought up a few concerns regarding building height, solar rites, and noise. “I think what we’ve been able to do is

sign an agreement from CWB agreeing to cease pulling water when they deemed it appropriate to. Those who did not sign the contract are now receiving notices stating if they do not sign the agreement, the water right holder will face a “potential fine up to $500 per day per water right for each day the certification(s) is/are not filed.” Essentially, farmers and ranchers relying on the water for their crops are being left with two options: Sign the agreement and wait for their water rights to be suspended, potential in the middle of farming seasons. Pay $500 per day of diverting water essential to grow their crops and keep their farms and families alive. Neither option seems very bulletproof for the farmer. “From our organization’s perspective, we don’t like to see farmland taken out of production when it’s taking water from a community that is dependent on agriculture,” explained Wade. In a February 2022 article in AgAlert, farmers and ranchers living in the Scotts Valley shared their worries about what the curtailment order could bring in its second season. Some were already considering selling out. “There’s a lot more thought among some landowners of getting out while the getting

is good if this is the way it’s going to be,” said Siskiyou County cattle rancher and hay grower Rick Barnes of Callahan, who relies on Scott River water. “Selling the ranch has been a topic. It’s a thought of mine. I know there’s a lot of first, second, and third-generation people who are thinking maybe it’s time to head for the exits.” In June, Scott Valley water rights holders received orders under their curtailment order that required them to cease pulling water from the Scott River and underground wells. According to the CFWC, “The water in the Scott River and underground wells is the sole supply for these farmers on their 30,000 acres of irrigated land, located within a 512,000acre watershed. This mountain valley primarily produces alfalfa and grass hay, pasture, grain, and cattle. Besides two organic dairies, beef production is either organic or conventional pasture-based for popular markets.” According to CWB, 12,600 out of 16,700 curtailment

The council adopted the draft resolution approving a Conditional Use Permit Amendment, Tentative Parcel Map (AT22-0011), and EIR Addendum for the Del Rio Marketplace, with the amendments added. The Integrated Waste Management Authority – Amended and Restated Joint Powers Agreement was also passed unanimously. The next Atascadero City Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 12, at 6 p.m.

compliant certifications have been filed. Of those, 795 water rights/claims have filed for health and safety exceptions, and 805 have filed for non-consumption use exceptions. Fifteen have submitted a petition for reconsideration, and 16 submitted proposals saying the curtailment has been inappropriate since August of last year. All petitions for reconsideration have been denied by the CWB. Only one proposal saying the curtailment is inappropriate has been approved. The rest are pending. “The drought is showing how unprepared we are with our water supply system,” says Wade, who implores that improving the state’s water storage and infrastructure is the only way to avoid losing more farms in the future. Wade tells Paso Robles Press of orchards using the water they have now to pull out plots of trees. They do this now, because the high probability of their water being restricted later in the season will make for a less than profitable harvest. “The state and the federal

government have to step up and invest in our water supply system,” said Wade. “And some things are happening, we aren’t saying nothing is happening, but we have to do some big things to stabilize California, our agriculture industry, and our ability to grow food for people because this isn’t a farm issue or a farmer issue or a rural community issue. It’s an issue for American consumers.” Regardless of politics, the end result is the same — no water, no farms, no food.

Sanborn and his family business have operated the Downtown Center Cinemas in San Luis Obispo for the last 30 years, while the business has been operating movie theaters for over 100 years. It will be bringing its experience and hometown feel to Atascadero’s theater. “We are excited that a seasoned and well-capitalized local theater operator stepped up at the last minute so that Atascadero can continue to have a fine theatre as the anchor of its downtown,” Nelson said. Once Colony Cinemas officially opens, moviegoers can see showtimes and purchase tickets at Atascadero.TheMovie Experience.com.
