Record number of cardboard boats entered to race at the Friends of Atascadero Lake LakeFest
By CHRISTIANNA MARKS
ATASCADERO — On Saturday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., families
headed out into the beautiful sunshine to attend the 6th Annual Friends of Atascadero Lake LakeFest. Fun was had by all ages, and there was a little something for everyone to participate in.
“Saturday was a huge success. I mean, there were so many people there. Way more
than we’ve had in the past,” said LakeFest Chairperson Nancy Hair. “Of course, the beautiful weather contributed to everybody coming out. But we also had more boats this year than we’ve ever had in the past, which was a lot of fun. The competition was pretty amazing. The whole
day was, I think, all about fun. Everybody had a wonderful time. There were smiles on everybody’s faces. All the kids were having a great time.”
The Cardboard Boat Regatta & Races were back again this year, and this family favorite event sported both an Open Class and a class for
kids 13 and under. The year’s races had record-breaking numbers, with 14 entries in the Open Class and 11 in the Kids Class.
The kids who participated in the cardboard boat races spent their morning building their boats before racing them in the afternoon.

On Sunday, May 21, the Paso Robles Police Department swiftly responded to a residential burglary in progress in the 300 block of Montebello Oaks. The homeowner, alerted by their Ring camera, reported the incident despite not being present at the time.
Upon arrival, patrol officers discovered an occupied vehicle in the driveway. Eliana PaloPomar, a 35-year-old resident of Los Angeles, was apprehended in the driver’s seat. A search of the vehicle led to the recovery of numerous stolen items from the residence. However, a second suspect involved in the burglary managed to flee the scene on foot and remains at large.
The subsequent K-9 search in the vicinity resulted in the discovery of burglary tools and several articles of clothing believed to belong to the outstanding suspect, which have been seized as evidence. The unidentified suspect is described as a light-skinned male, aged 25-35, last seen wearing black pants and blackand-white Nike shoes.
The investigation into this burglary is ongoing, and the Paso Robles Police Department seeks the cooperation of the community. Individuals with any information regarding this incident are urged to contact the PRPD at (805) 237-6464. Anonymous tips can

ations at both the Atascadero and Paso Robles campuses. For ECHO Atascadero they are seeking volunteers for the overnight chaperone position.
The Paso Robles Police Department responded to a robbery incident on Monday, May 15, at approximately 8:20 p.m. The incident occurred in the 1200 block of Alamo Creek, within the Dry Creek Apartment complex. According to a concerned caller, two armed men forced a family into an apartment and stole their personal belongings. Despite a swift response from law enforcement, both suspects managed to escape prior to the authorities’ arrival.
The subsequent investigation identified the alleged perpetrators as Leonel Herrejon Sanchez, 33, and Angel Chavez, 19, both of Paso Robles. Further inquiries led investigators to a local Walmart, where surveillance footage captured Chavez attempting to use one of the victims’ credit cards.
Taking significant strides in the case, a patrol officer apprehended Angel Chavez without any resistance on May 17 near the intersection of 28th and Park streets. Chavez was safely transported to the SLO County Jail and now faces four felony charges, including robbery (211 PC), kidnapping (207 PC), burglary (459 PC), and conspiracy (182(a)(1) PC).
The Paso Robles Police Department currently seeks the public’s assistance in locating Leonel Herrejon Sanchez, who is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information regarding Sanchez’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Paso Robles Police Department at (805) 237-6464.
Individuals who wish to provide anonymous tips can do so by calling Crime Stoppers’ 24-hour hotline at (805) 549-STOP or by texting “SLOTIPS” followed by their message to CRIMES (274637).
Paso Robles woman sentenced for involuntary manslaughter in husband’s shooting death
San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow announced today the sentencing of Skylar Marie Marshall, 26, who grew up in Paso Robles, for the involuntary manslaughter of her husband, Alexander Hagist, 35.
Marshall received a sevenyear sentence, with two years to be served in county jail custody, followed by five years of community supervision.
Marshall’s conviction stems from the fatal shooting that took place on July 16, 2020, at the couple’s residence on Chorro Street in San Luis Obispo. During the preliminary hearing held on April 29, 2021, evidence revealed that Marshall pointed a loaded handgun at Hagist’s forehead and pulled the trigger, resulting in his death. Marshall claimed she believed the gun was unloaded but failed to confirm before firing, despite having prior experience handling firearms and warnings from her roommate and Hagist about gun safety.
Initially charged with
During the sentencing hearing, Superior Court Judge Jacquelyn H. Duffy imposed a seven-year sentence but “split” it into two parts. Marshall will serve two years in county jail custody, followed by five years of community supervision under Proposition 47. The maximum sentence for the conviction could have been 14 years.
Deputy District Attorney Crystal Seiler argued for Marshall to serve the entire seven-year sentence in custody or, if split, to serve five years in custody followed by two years of mandatory supervision. The San Luis Obispo County Probation Department recommended a seven-year custody sentence in a pre-sentence report.
Dow expressed condolences to Hagist’s family and emphasized the importance of responsible gun use, stating that assuming the responsibility of handling a firearm entails the obligation to exercise the utmost care.
El Camino Homeless Organization looking for summer volunteers
El Camino Homeless Shelter (ECHO) is in need of community volunteers to assist in oper-
The position is a unique experience where volunteers get to connect with residents of the 90-day residential shelter program and are a warm and welcoming face from the community. Friends and family members are welcome to sign up in groups and experience it together. With a position that is usually filled during the school year by students from Cal Poly, ECHO is seeking community help to fill those positions over the summer months. Both ECHO campuses are also seeking new meal teams interested in helping to support the nightly meal program that runs every night of the year in both Atascadero and Paso Robles.
Volunteer duties of the overnight chaperone include supervising activities like basketball, four square, tag, games, and more. Volunteers act as a listening ear for residents wanting to talk and are the support to the on-site residential advocate staff member. This can be an extremely rewarding experience and gives volunteers the opportunity to really see the impact their service has on the lives of others.

The incident occurred on Wednesday, May 17, at approximately 11:55 p.m., when two victims were approached by two suspects while seated in their vehicle outside the establishment.
According to witness statements, one suspect produced a firearm and demanded the victims exit the vehicle. During the confrontation, one victim was physically assaulted. The suspects proceeded to remove cash and a check from the victims’ pockets before fleeing the scene on foot.
The Atascadero Police Department’s Investigations Unit promptly launched an investigation and identified Sebastian Yciano, a 23-yearold transient male from Paso Robles, and Elmer Quiterio, a 29-year-old resident of Atascadero, as the suspects involved. Subsequently, arrest and search warrants were obtained for both individuals.
On Friday, May 19, members of the Investigations Unit, in collaboration with APD, conducted surveillance of one suspect’s residence on Castano Avenue. At approximately 9:18 a.m., officers observed a vehicle leaving the location with multiple occupants. Authorities attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the vehicle failed to comply, leading to a vehicle pursuit.
During the pursuit, one of the suspects discarded a firearm from the vehicle, which was later recovered by officers. While fleeing on Highway 101, Yciano exited the vehicle and was apprehended by pursuing officers.

San Luis Obispo County ClerkRecorder sues over election recount costs
The San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder, Elaina Cano has initiated legal action against a woman who sought a manual recount of the District 2 Supervisor election held in November 2022. The incumbent, Bruce Gibson, emerged victorious with 52 percent of the votes, defeating Dr. Bruce Jones in the race.
Darcia Stebbens, a resident of the county, filed a request for a recount following the election results. However, Stebbens terminated the recount request slightly over two weeks later.
On May 1, the County Clerk-Recorder’s Office filed a lawsuit against Stebbens, claiming that she owes a total of $4,448.21. The lawsuit alleges that this amount represents the remaining balance based on the actual costs associated with the recount process. An invoice provided by the Clerk-Recorder’s Office reveals that the total cost of the District 2 recount was $52,325.74.
A court date for the lawsuit has been scheduled for July 14, 2023. As this is a developing

Sheriff’s Office warns residents of phone scam in San Luis Obispo County
The Sheriff’s Office is alerting residents about a prevalent phone scam targeting individuals in the area. Several reports have surfaced indicating that impostors claiming to be from the Sheriff’s Office contact unsuspecting individuals, falsely informing them of an arrest warrant against them.
What makes this scam particularly deceptive is the use of technology that manipulates caller ID, making the call appear to originate from the Sheriff’s Office.
Furthermore, scammers have gone as far as using the names of actual deputies, adding an air of authenticity to their fraudulent calls.
The fraudulent caller instructs the resident to resolve the alleged warrant by making a cash transfer or payment through a debit card or gift card. It is crucial to note that this is a scam. The Sheriff’s Office emphasizes that they do not typically initiate contact with residents via phone for such matters. Deputy sheriffs will never request money or gift cards in place of bail.
Residents are urged to exercise caution and promptly report any calls resembling this scam to their local law enforcement agency. It is essential to inform family and friends about this scam to ensure preparedness in the event they receive a similar call.
Protect yourself and stay vigilant against phone scams by verifying any suspicious calls and refraining from sharing personal or financial information over the phone.

The Open Class, where participants created their cardboard boats at home before bringing them to the lake, was also a big hit.
“There were some boats that went in the water and immediately sunk, so you never know,” continued Hair.
Winners of the Open Class were The Bullard Family on Duck Yea in first, Bill Hair on Big Duck in second, and Mike Dean on It’s 5 0 clock Somewhere in third.

approved, and that kind of set in motion this Prop 218 process,” stated Betz.
At the March 28 meeting, the date for the public hearing was set, and notices were sent by staff to property owners, which gave residents ample time to protest the proposed rate increase.
The proposed rate increase goes from $40.46 per EDU (equivalent dwelling unit) to $48.15 per EDU.
“That’s about a 19 percent increase that falls consistently with previous rate increases,” Betz said. “As I mentioned before, that wastewater rate study completed in 2019 set a five-year max, or kind of five years, to take a look at those rate increases. This is the fifth year, if you will, of that rate study.”

The item was then opened up to a public hearing to hear any protests from the community. There was not a majority protest as no one stepped forward, either at the meeting or in writing to oppose the rate increase. The motion passed unanimously.

in journalism seems not just a job but a fulfillment of destiny.
Both Marks and DeVaul have expressed their love for the community and the vital role they play in telling its stories. DeVaul’s dedication extends to her appreciation for small-town life and its big news, relishing the opportunity to shed light on the community’s history and its many intriguing characters.
“I love our community. I grew up in Templeton and always had an appreciation for small town life. But just because we are small does not mean we don’t have big news. There are stories and interesting people everywhere you look and I get to shed light on all of those people and events,” DeVaul shared. “History is another passion of mine.

The day of fun also included 2-for-1 coupons to Charles Paddock Zoo, a DJ, live music from Way Out West, and a 50/50 raffle.
“This is not a fundraiser,”
Hair said. “We’re not making any money on this. It’s a big labor of love. It promotes the Atascadero Lake; it promotes our organization and the Link. And really, that’s what it’s about.”

The project officially kicked off in 2017 and has gone through many steps since then, including a traffic engineering and operation analysis, public outreach workshops, the approval of the plan, approval of Wallace Group for design and construction plans in 2021, and open houses to the community in 2022 and 2023.
“We presented three different concept alternatives last time I was here before we took it to the public, and each of those concepts had various different amenities that were shown on the plans, and we really wanted to get the public’s input on which items they liked and let them know they could mix and match between the three different concepts,” stated Huffman. “So what we’re showing tonight is a collection of all those comments put into a final concept plan that we will then be taking into construction, hopefully, next year.”

Marks, too, thrives on the opportunity to spotlight the extraordinary endeavors within our community, aiding in the crucial task of helping our community feel seen and heard.
“I love being able to tell people’s stories and highlight the amazing things that people are doing in the community. It’s so important to feel seen, and I love that I get to have a hand in that for the people around me,” Marks said.

“The first increase would be in July of 2023 and then annually thereafter,” Douglas-Schatz added. “It’s about 8 percent each year for three years, and then that would get you to about 50 percent of judge pay. And then we’d keep you tied to that amount in subsequent years.”

Public Comment on the item.
All nine were in opposition to the board passing their own pay increase. Many stated that they opposed the increase due to being in a time of economic uncertainty.
When the pay increase was brought before the board in February, Supervisors John Peschong, Debbie Arnold, and Jimmy Paulding all voted no, but this round, when it came time to vote, Paulding switched his vote in favor of the pay
increase. Though he stated that he would not be taking the pay increase himself.
Arnold and Peschong maintained their no votes, with Peschong also stating that he would not be taking a pay increase.
Supervisors Paulding, Bruce Gibson, and Dawn Ortiz-Legg voted yes, meaning that the pay increase was voted through and will go into effect starting in July.

Fryers Club Roast raises close to $100K for Cancer Support Community California Central Coast
This year’s roast featured Ali Rush of 15 Degrees C
By CHRISTIANNA MARKS
TEMPLETON — The Cancer Support Community California Central Coast (CSC CCC) held its Seventh Annual Fryers Club Roast on Sunday, May 7. The fun-filled event took place at Terra Mia in Paso Robles, with owners Tracy and Rich Secchiaroli hosting 175 guests on their property.
“The ever-vibrant Fryers Club Roast at Terra Mia was filled with laughs, roasts, toasts, and paddle raises with our local Central Coast community raising funds for a wonderful cause,” notes Candice Sanders, executive director of CSC CCC.
Guests who attended the roast were provided with bubbles by Rava Wines and plenty of small bites from some of the North County’s favorite tastemakers, including La Parrilla Mexican Grill, Jeffry’s Wine Country BBQ, Paso Robles Culinary Arts, and Templeton Pizza + Greek Food. All of that was enjoyed while people placed bids on the silent auction items available.
Shortly after that, the event really kicked off with the live auction, which was led by local auctioneer Cody Dawson. The live auction featured 10 items from trips to Mexico, dinner parties at Terra Mia and McPhees Grill, and even dinner and wine with this year’s roastee, Ali Rush, from 15 Degrees C in Templeton.
At the end of the auction, a surprise announcement was given. Herman Story Wines took the stage for their auction lot and told the crowd the dates for the Eighth Annual Fryers Club
Roast, and announced that Russell From, the wineries owner and winemaker, would be the 2024 roastee.

Junior CEO graduate donates earnings to ECHO
Wolfe wanted to help people without homes
Second-grader Leland Wolfe just became a philanthropist. Wolfe is a recent graduate of the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural Junior CEO program, which taught the basics of business to 56 elementary and junior high students. His business was Good Photos, and he provided instant photos for his customers. Hired by the Chamber to photograph the 100th Anniversary Gala and Awards dinner last month, Leland decided to donate his proceeds to El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO).
“The Chamber invited me to photograph their Gala last weekend, and I earned $400, I can help people,” wrote Wolfe in a letter included with his donation. “You see, I have two homes (my mom’s and dad’s), and I want to help people without any home.”
“We are so impressed with Leland for seeing why a home is so important,” said Wendy Lewis, CEO and executive director of ECHO. “We just want to thank Leland for supporting our mission and inspiring others to do the same.”

in Atascadero and Paso Robles, ECHO is able to offer 110 shelter beds for both families tion offers a range of services from a 90-day residential shelter programs, community outreach, ment, housing plans, on-site
auction was over as a group of local celebrity roasters gave toasts and roasts to Rush. She knew some of the roasters, but CSC CCC had some tricks up their sleeve as to where some of
the roasts came from. Laughs were had by all, and the crowd cheered and egged the roasters along.
“The roasters were quite ready to have some fun. They poked fun, good fun, at Ali, along with their roaster counterparts,” Sanders said. “We even had a guest appearance by Elvis as Neil Roberts, Ali’s dear friend and owner of Clavo Cellars + Roberts Vineyard Services, sang part of his roast to Ali.”
Between ticket sales to the roast, both auctions, fund-a-need, and donations, the roast raised just under $100,000 for CSC CCC.
CSC CCC’s mission is to enhance the health and well-being of local cancer patients and their families. With a motto of “community is stronger than cancer,” CSC offers comprehensive programming, including emotional health and wellness, education, and a community for all participants. They are funded entirely through private donations. So events like the Annual Fryers Club Roast make all the difference in being able to provide their services to the community.
“We are beyond thankful for everyone who joined us for the evening as it is their contribution that allows us to continue offering comprehensive programming including emotional, health and wellness, education, and a community for all participants at Cancer Support Community California Central Coast,” said Sanders.
The Eighth Annual Fryers Club Roast and Auction will be back at Terra Mia on Sunday, May 5, 2024. Featuring roastee Russell From of Herman Story Wines. Look for tickets in early 2024.

According to Josh Cross, Chamber president and CEO who led each virtual workshop, “It’s been a highlight of my year to teach these young entrepreneurs the basics of business. They all worked hard and Leland is an exceptional photographer. I’m delighted that he chose to give back to his community.”

Atascadero Community Band presents local nonprofit with donation
The band is performing at the Atascadero Lake Park from June 13 through Aug. 15
ATASCADERO — Marina
Bernheimer, executive director of Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, was recently presented with a check for $937. The contribution from Atascadero Community Band was a result of generous audience donations collected during the community band’s “Have Music, Will Travel” concert held in the sanctuary of the Atascadero Bible Church on May 7.
Joyce Rabellino, current president of the Atascadero Community Band, shared the importance the group places on its mission of helping fellow nonprofits in the local community.
“The Atascadero Community Band is proud of its commitment to support other nonprofit organizations in our county,” she said. “Over the past 20 years, we have donated over $26,000 to local nonprofits, focusing on those that support music or music education, as well as those that support our local communities. We are thrilled to be able to donate to CASA, supporting their important advocacy for children in the court system.”
The band has an exciting, music-filled summer planned as they return to their summer “home,” performing in the Centennial Bandstand at the Atascadero Lake Park at 7 p.m. each Tuesday evening from June 13 through Aug. 15. The summer concerts serve two primary functions: They are the

major fundraising for the band’s annual budget in order to operate, and they encourage local music students to join the band in a casual, fun and supportive environment.
Music lovers should plan to bring chairs, blankets, picnics, and beverages, and enjoy free concerts during the gorgeous summer evenings in Atascadero. As a special bonus to round out their summer concert season, the Atascadero Community Band invites the public to its free “Ensembles” concert on Aug. 22, as various small groups within the band take the stage.
“These concerts are often the first time student musicians have a chance to play with an ‘adult’ band,” Rabellino explains, “and it gives them the advantage of mentoring by more seasoned musicians, along with plenty of sight-reading practice. Additionally, the donations received through our summer ‘bucket brigade’ comprise the entirety of our annual band budget. This year, we’re excited to play our annual Patriotic Concert right on July 4, anchoring a musical afternoon presented by the Atascadero Printery Foundation. All are welcome for these fabulous small-town free community concerts.”
The Atascadero Community Band is an all-volunteer 501(c) (3) organization.

May 20, 2023, 5:45 AM - 11:45 AM Held at Redwings, 6875 Union Rd. Paso Robles, CA Information and registration available through essencecaptured.com or redwingshorsesanctuary.com
Redwings is always looking for volunteers to help us provide the highest standard of care for our horses and burros. You do not need to have any prior horse experience to volunteer at Redwings. If you would like to work with our horses, the first step is to take a Volunteer Training Class. This class covers sanctuary rules, basic safe horsemanship skills, and an introduction to some of the horses that you will be working with. After completion of the class you are welcome to come volunteer and help with the horses any time during our volunteer hours. Volunteer hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 8am to 3:30pm, and we are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Note: We do not allow volunteers to ride the horses at Redwings. There are other ways to get involved and volunteer at Redwings too. We have opportunities to help in our rose and memorial garden, volunteering in the office, helping with events and fundraising, and more. Please submit the form below to schedule a volunteer training or contact our office: email@example.com or (805) 237-3751.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holder’s rights against the real property only. THIS NOTICE IS SENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING A DEBT. THIS FIRM IS ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT ON BEHALF OF THE HOLDER AND OWNER OF THE NOTE. ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED BY OR PROVIDED TO THIS FIRM OR THE CREDITOR WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.

TENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should 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 consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE
TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. 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 (800) 758-8052 or visit this Internet Web site www. Xome.com, using the file number assigned to this case 22-27008. 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. For sales conducted after January 1, 2021: 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 (800) 758-8052, or visit this internet website www. Xome.com, using the file number assigned to this case 22-27008 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.

In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should 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 consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE
TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. 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 (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.STOXPOSTING. COM, using the file number assigned to this case 101316-CA. 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:
Effective January 1, 2021, 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.

Hope you were able to enjoy some of the many festivals that took place last weekend. I’m hearing that they were all very successful and well-attended, which is great when the organizers are nonprofits trying to raise money for their causes.
Speaking of events, mark your calendars for the beginning of the Saturday in the Park Summer Concert Series, on June 17 at Atascadero Lake Park.
The JD Project will kick off the series starting at 6:30 p.m. Each Saturday concert will have a food truck available to purchase “good grub.” Do get out that low back chair and head for the park on June 17.
Paso Robles and Templeton will also be starting their concerts, so watch for their opening dates.
Recipes for Celebrations
Remember June 24 for the 26th Annual Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival, from 4 to 8 p.m., at Atascadero Lake Park. The date and time takes advantage of Atascadero’s warm, summer evenings where you’ll taste the area’s superior wines, distilled spirits, and craft brews. You can dance to live music by the glistening lake, and stroll into the Charles Paddock Zoo for more tastings of spirits while visiting the animals who live there. Food will be available for purchase. Fine art and craft vendors will have their work on display as will commercial vendors with their wine-related merchandise.
The recipes for this week are a “mix-of-many,” and with a variety of celebrations on the calendar, from graduations to family reunions, I’m sure you’ll find one that needs to be on your menu.

People’s refusal to use Ivermectin to treat COVID19 because it’s a “horse medicine” is like refusing to eat corn because it’s a hog feed. I’ve had three cowboy friends with COVID-19 who treated themselves with appropriate doses of Ivermectin, and all three got better within two days.
Years ago, I wrote a feature story about how Ivermectin was the only drug found to effectively treat river blindness in Africa. River blindness is a parasitic infection that can lead to permanent blindness, and Ivermectin is given to entire communities living in endemic areas in Africa. The natives don’t refuse to use it because it’s “horse medicine,” as they prefer not to go blind.
Although I’m not condoning or recommending it (wink, wink), drugs that are used on animals have long been used on humans, especially with people who work with animals, like ranchers and veterinarians. Have
you ever heard of sulfa, penicillin, prednisone, lidocaine, and a laundry list of other drugs where the animal and human versions are exactly the same? I’ve got to admit there were times I was tempted to give myself a shot of LA 200.
Prior to the 20th century, doctors mostly used the “puke, purge and bleed” style of medicine.
The Hispanics called their doctors “matasanos,” which roughly translated means “killer of the healthy.” A couple of hundred years ago, the only anesthetics were whiskey and opium, and a lot of voodoo medicine was practiced. For example, rattlesnake venom was thought to cure leprosy, but first, you had to survive the “milking” of the rattlesnake. Grease from beef tallow was used as salves, and potions made from the contents of cow’s stomachs were used to treat a variety of ailments and diseases. The great cowman, Charles Goodnight, believed that buffalo fat would cure anything. And you didn’t have to get a prescription from a doctor to get these concoctions as it wasn’t until the 20th century that doctors began writing prescriptions that only a
pharmacist could decipher.
For over a century now, Americans have been overdosing on stupidity and prescription medicines. I, for example, am currently on 12 different prescriptions, including a very expensive one. You know where it comes from?
It’s ground-up pig pancreas and without it, I can’t digest any food. That’s right, I wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for swine. I’m supposed to take two pills with every meal and was advised by my doctor not to take more than 20 of the pills per day, which makes me wonder how many times a day he thinks I eat.
When I think about humans taking animal drugs, I am reminded of the old story about the rancher with the expensive bull who wouldn’t breed any cows because the bull was running low on libido. The vet prescribed some pills for the bull to cure the problem. When a friend asked the rancher what was in the pills the rancher replied, “I don’t know, but it tastes like peppermint.”
For some reason, as a child, I always thought my mother was trying to get rid of me, so I didn’t trust any pills she gave me, even an aspirin, unless she took one first. I wasn’t the only one who did this. I’m a fan of the writ-

including green stalks, and add to the bowl. Snip dill into the bowl with scissors down to 1-inch from the end of the stem. Drizzle olive oil and vinegar over all. Add feta cheese and toss well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Note: As an appetizer, serve a spoonful of this salad on top of a small, thin slice of toasted dark rye bread.
Broiled Parmesan Tomatoes
Cut 2 to 4 medium-size tomatoes in half crosswise and place, cut side up, in a 9-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 to 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Broil 4 to 6 inches below heat just until cheese is lightly toasted and tomatoes are warm (about 10 minutes).

ings of Dr. Robert Miller and have known about him for a long time, even before I started reading his stories in Western Horseman. I grew up about 30 miles from Dr. Miller’s vet clinic, and he enjoyed a sterling reputation and was regarded as America’s James Herriot. He was an exceptional vet for virtually every species, including zoo animals. In his book, “Yes, We Treat Aardvarks,” Dr. Miller told about the time he was called upon to treat a sick gorilla named Jerry, who begged for the tablets that Dr. Miller got him to swallow after some initial resistance.
As Dr. Miller wrote, “That was the end of Jerry’s problem, but his master didn’t fare as well. I saw him a week later.”
“How are you, Jim?” Dr. Miller asked.
“Not too good,” he answered. “I’ve been awfully constipated, the light bothers my eyes, and my mouth’s terribly dry. Been sittin’ in the bathroom all week with the lights out, drinking like a fish. But Jerry is fine! He always takes his medicine ... just as long as I take some first.”

American New Thought writer, teacher, and leader Ernest Holmes wrote, “Sitting in the shadow, we may not believe there is sunshine. But the sun would be there all the time. It is there, but we must awaken to it.”
The metaphorical “shadow” in this quote refers to a state of mind or perspective characterized by negativity, pessimism, or ignorance. When someone is “sitting in the shadow,” they dwell in this negative state, unable to see beyond their current circumstances or emotions. They may be surrounded by darkness, unable to recognize the existence of light
The “sunshine” mentioned in the quote represents the positive aspects of life, opportunities, and happiness that are always present, regardless of our perception. It symbolizes the potential for growth, joy, and fulfillment.
The quote emphasizes that the sun, or the positive aspects of life, constantly shines, even when we cannot see it. The phrase, “the sun would be there all the time,” signifies that opportunities and happiness are always available, waiting to be realized.
However, the quote also acknowledges that it is up to us to awaken to the presence of the sun. It highlights the importance of shifting our perspective, overcoming negativity, and developing an awareness of the positive aspects of our lives. It suggests that we have the power to change our perception, step out of the shadow, and embrace the opportunities and happiness that are
In essence, the quote encourages us to adopt a positive mindset, seek out the silver linings, and actively recognize and appreciate the positive aspects of our lives. It reminds us that even in challenging times, the potential for growth and happiness exists, but it requires our active engagement and awareness to experience it truly.
If you are deep in your shadow right now, know you will not be stuck there long. However, it can seem like an eternity. Remember that all things are passing, and everything is constantly changing. The light will return — it must. Look for it.
American Franciscan priest and writer on spirituality Richard Rohr observed, “The closer you get to the Light, the more of your shadow you see.” As we strive for personal growth and enlightenment, we become more aware of our personality’s flaws,
weaknesses, or darker aspects. It implies that self-reflection and introspection can reveal the hidden parts of ourselves that we may not be consciously aware of but are essential to acknowledge and address to continue progressing toward a better version of ourselves.
I find great comfort and joy in the above as it reminds me that my light is super bright as I embrace and experience my shadow. I am not afraid, for I know the presence and power of Love as the Divine within me is shining brightly.
Remember, the sun and stars constantly shine, even when we don’t see them. The same is true for the Divine presence of Love within you. And so it is.

Templeton High School girls track and field team run home with Division III championship
By CAMILLE DeVAUL
TEMPLETON — For the first time in 17 years, the Templeton High School girl’s track and field team brought home a CIF title, earning the Central Section Division III championship on May 12 at Nipomo High School. The win has been a culmination of hard work, individually and as a team, to overcome some of the season’s obstacles.
Rosalie Smith has been coaching track and field at Templeton for the past five years, the last two as head coach. She notes how close the team came to a CIF title last year and how that experience fueled her team this season. With a crop of freshman added to the team this year, Smith found herself with a well-rounded
team and strong athletes in nearly every event.
“They really took the momentum that they had started last year and they used a little of that experience,” said Smith. “They just took off. It was so neat to watch.”
Throughout the season, the team has been challenged by competition against Division I and II athletes. But at the Nipomo meet, the girls were able to race against over 30 teams in their division.
Part of the team’s success, Smith thinks, is a result of the school’s dirt track.
“I think it built some mental toughness because they compete on these beautiful all-weather tracks and facilities, but they are training on some of the toughest conditions,” she said.
The beginning of the season brought challenges for the team as
they were fighting the unusually rainy winter in the county. Smith explained having to find ways for the athletes to train in the various events despite constant downpours and canceled track meets.
“The beginning of the season was so challenging because of all the rains, and our track was flooded, and half of our week was torrential downpours,” she said.
Despite training in adverse conditions, the athletes remained focused and dedicated to their goals. Smith attributes their success not only to their individual efforts but also to the unwavering support of the coaching staff, including Ted Swan (jumps), Michael Williams (sprint relays/ hurdles), Marcel Acebo (throwers), and assistants Susan McAdoo, Bandy Smith, and Adam Medina.
“The team of coaches that we had was also something I felt had
contributed to our season too,” said Smith. “Our team of coaches pulled through for everybody.”
As the season went on, Smith watched her team go from focusing on their personal accolades to working more as a team.
“It was exciting to watch throughout the season because you could see how well they were doing,” she said.
“As the season went on I think they saw how good they were as a team and started focusing on what they could do for their team.”
The team, which sent 14 athletes to the competition, achieved remarkable results, with several members securing medals.
Among the rising stars on the team is sophomore Taylor Sutton, whose achievements have garnered attention. Sutton’s performances include victories in the 1600-meter and 3200-meter events at the
CIF meet, as well as a 10th-place finish at the Masters meet. Smith commended Taylor’s dedication and highlights her progress throughout the season.
The success of the girls’ team, which has not won a CIF title since 2006, has ignited a spark of motivation within the entire track program. Smith hopes that the boys will draw inspiration from the girls’ accomplishments and strive to reach new heights.
Looking ahead, Smith is optimistic about the team’s future. With a solid girls’ team poised to elevate the boys’ team, she firmly believes that the future is bright for her team.
“I think we are going to have a solid girls team next year and it’s going to elevate the boys team as well,” said Smith. “This is possible. We are a small school, but it is something that they can do.”
