ATASCADERO — On Friday, Nov. 25, the Hidden Springs Christmas Tree Farm in Atascadero will open for its 60th season with seven

varieties of trees to choose from, hot cider, and plenty of opportunities to make memories. To celebrate their glorious 60-year-old tree farm and business, there will be a few giveaways. They are also working on a historical picture display, interactive displays for children, and specific merchandise

for their 60th. The farm still offers Grandpa Fred’s apple cider recipe, which is complimentary to all customers. Hidden Springs Christmas Tree Farm has a life full of history. It began when Minnesotan Fred Frank moved to Atascadero in 1920 and met and married Kansas native Wanda Wiley. During that time, Fred became one

of the first citizens to work at the Atascadero fire department and then the second fire chief in 1929. Then in 1938, Fred and Wanda purchased the main tree farm property. While building their house, they farmed wheat and raised cattle, chickens, and rabbits. At the convincing of their son Fred Jr., who went to Humboldt State for forestry,

they turned part of their property into a Christmas tree farm. Then in the late 1950s, they planted the first tree crop, mainly Monterey Pines, on three acres and opened for their first tree season in 1962. According to Fred’s granddaughter and farm manager, Auraly Dobbs, “The tree farm CONTINUED ON PAGE A10

Solarponics Host First ‘Share the Sunshine’ Volunteer Sign-up Day

They hope to bring Share the Sunshine back multiple times a year from here on out By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — Local nonprofits gathered in the Solarponics parking lot in Atascadero on Friday, Nov. 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the company’s firstever Share the Sunshine volunteer sign-up day. “Share the Sunshine came out of us being a solar company. That’s where the name came from, but also our new mission and vision for the year, which came out of the volunteering, is, we are people first,” stated Chief Marketing Officer Frank Scotti. “Every year, collectively, the managers regroup and try to think about what’s most important. This year we made people as our primary focus,” added Solarponics President and Owner Christian Emrich. The local solar company started a program for its employees, giving them one

paid day off a year to volunteer in the community. The company noticed that it was hard to find and pick nonprofits to work alongside, which is how the idea for Share the Sunshine was born. “We can’t be the only ones having trouble picking a place to volunteer. It was even difficult figuring out where we wanted to volunteer. We didn’t know where to start,” said Scotti. “It was one easy, ‘well, what if we did all the work for everybody else and we just brought a bunch of nonprofits together in one place, and the nonprofits

goal of 15 nonprofits, and we were hoping for 50 community members to come in, and if we could get three sign-ups for every nonprofit, then I feel like we accomplished something,” added Emrich. Solarponics exceeded their goal of nonprofits who participated, and every one of those had multiple sign-ups with people wanting to volunteer. The nonprofits who participated in Share the Sunshine were: Meals that Connect, The Atascadero Greyhound Foundation/Lighthouse, Estrella

knew they were there to look for volunteers.’” The nonprofits at the sign-up fair represented multiple industries in the area, from pets, the elderly, homelessness, meals, crisis intervention, land conservancy, the library, and more. It gave the community members who came out to find volunteer opportunities many options to choose from, all in one place. “I hadn’t seen any volunteer fairs; I thought that maybe it was an opportunity to get the public involved and to get some people signed up. We made a simple

Warbirds Museum, One Cool Earth, The Atascadero Printery Foundation, Atascadero Loaves and Fishes, Atascadero Kiwanis, SLO Botanical Garden, ECHO, Optimist Club Paso Robles, Lumina Alliance, ECOSLO, Land Conservancy of SLO County, Rancho Burro Donkey Sanctuary, Friends of Atascadero Library, and Alice’s Bookstore. The sentiment was echoed by all the nonprofits who participated that it was great to learn more about each other and make connections while at the fair, in addition to gaining new volun-

teers. It was also evident that the in-person volunteer sign-up day really helped brake the online sign-up barrier and personalize the experience. “They [the community] really enjoyed being able to be introduced and learn about multiple community organizations in one spot. It did what it was supposed to do. It made it really easy to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time,” added Scotti. Scotti also stressed that all the nonprofits said they have spots for anyone who wants to volunteer, no matter what their skill set is, and that the community members who went to the volunteer day enjoyed learning what opportunities the Central Coast has to offer. “The most surprising thing was realizing all the volunteer opportunities. That anybody can volunteer,” he continued. Scotti said that Share the Sunshine will be back and that Solarponics hopes the next installment will be sometime before the summer of 2023. “The more nonprofits or community organizations we can bring together, the better,” he concluded.

THEATER ARTS

Nutcracker Gala Asked the Community to ‘Be Part of the Magic’ ‘The Nutcracker’ will run Dec. 1, 2, and 4 at the Spanos Theatre By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — On the evening of Saturday, Nov. 5, 115 patrons of the arts headed to the Atascadero Lake Pavilion for the North County Dance Performing Arts Foundation’s (NCDPAF) Nutcracker Gala Fundraiser. This year the Gala’s theme, as well as their upcoming production of “The Nutcracker,” is “Be Part of the Magic,” and what a magical night it was. “It’s a really decadent event where people buy themed tables,” said NCDPAF Director of Development Carrie Wood. “So each themed table is based after a certain scene or a certain queen with

really decedent decor.” The NCDPAF family banded together to decorate the different tables for the evening. The goal was to make them splendid and unique and to create something representing this year’s production of NCDPAF’s “The Nutcracker.” The table decorations did not disappoint. “It’s really our only fundraiser that we do for ‘The Nutcracker,’ so it’s really important that we have community members come in and support that,” said Cheryle Armstrong, NCDPAF’s artistic director. “I call this whole project the best-kept secret in the North County. People just don’t know how hard the dancers and the parents work for this production.” Lead dancers from 10 different dances in the ballet performed small vignettes from this North County’s upcoming

Nutcracker production, giving the Gala’s attendees a taste test of what they can see in the future. “We had some former Nutcracker Alumni dancers and dancer families that came to support the cause,” Wood stated. The evening also hosted a live and silent auction, with a production drive to update things like costumes, sets, and props for the production, which is celebrating its 26th year on the Central Coast. The auction featured many wonderful desserts from the crowd to bid on and catering by Pacific Harvest Catering Co. “We had a local auctioneer, Mackenzy Bailey [and her two spotter crew]. She’s from King City,” added Wood. “That was fun. She’s a female auctioneer, which is different, you know, so everyone got a kick out of that.” All money raised at the Gala

went directly back into the Nutcracker production to offset costs from buying new costumes to paying the choreographers, both local and from out of state. “We raised about 20 percent of the overall cost of the 2022 Nutcracker production,” Wood continued.

Mid State Cruizers Give $10,000 to Local Nonprofits

The proceeds were made during the club’s 31st Annual Mid State Cruizers Car Show in August By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — On Thursday, Nov. 17, at 6:30 p.m., the Mid State Cruizers met for their monthly meeting at Round Table Pizza. During their 31st Annual Mid State Cruizers Car Show in August, the local car club raised a total of $10,000 for local charities, which they handed out to the nonprofits at the start of their meeting. “We are actually able to give $10,000, the highest we’ve ever been able to give to 10 wonderful charities. That’s the one thing we get to do; we get to support them in the wonderful work they do for our community,” said Mid State Cruizers President Roy Barba at the meeting. The Mid State Cruizers

took nominations for charities back in September. Every year they pick 10 San Luis Obispo County charities to support, and at their October meeting, they voted, and their top 10 charities were chosen to receive $1,000 each. A total of 23 local charities were nominated this year. “That’s in the [Cruizer’s] bylaws. They [the charities] need to be local,” added Barba. “There might be some that you’re not even familiar with. Those are kind of what we try to do because they really need it, and I think they’re really appreciative. And that’s kind of what our whole goal is. To try to help the little ones.” The 10 charities and nonprofits chosen this year were Woods Humane Society Atascadero, Atascadero High School Auto Shop, Escuela Del Rio, Boxes for Soldiers (Helping Soldiers in the Desert), Veterans Memorial Foundation (Faces of Freedom Memorial), Lumina

Fire Safety Tips from Templeton Fire Department for the Holiday Season Templeton Utilities Department offers freeze alert tips STAFF REPORT

NORTH COUNTY — The Templeton Fire Department and Templeton Utilities Department have issued some holiday safety tips to get you through this holiday season. Alarms This Christmas, give your family and friends a gift that saves lives ... a smoke alarm. Most fatal fires take place at night, while you and your family are asleep. If you have one or more working smoke alarms in your home you double your chances of surviving a fire. Smoke alarms are inexpensive and easy to install. Candle Care Candles are a traditional and beautiful part of the holiday season. They can also be a source of fire in your home, so be cautious with them. Place candles in non-tip candle holders and ensure they are well away from the Christmas tree and other holiday decorations. Never leave lit candles unattended and ensure that they are out of reach of children. Enjoy the festive season by putting safety first.

Christmas Tree Safety Most Christmas fires can be prevented. Before buying your Christmas tree, test it for freshness by tapping the base of the tree on the ground. If needles fall or can be pulled off easily the tree is too dry. At home, find a cool spot for your tree, away from heater vents and the fireplace. Keep your tree as fresh as possible by watering it often. Use no heat producing lights on your tree. Kitchen Fire Safety Practice fire safety in the kitchen this holiday season. Never leave cooking food unattended and if you are faced with a grease fire, remember — put a lid on it and turn the heat source off. Always turn pot handles to the back of the stove so pots won’t be pulled or knocked off by children. Enjoy the holidays and stay fire safe. Freeze Alert Tips from Templeton Utilities Department Take precautions to prevent water pipes from freezing when the temperature drops below freezing. Exposed pipe can freeze and burst when the air temperature reaches below freezing (32 degrees F). Remember the saying - better safe than sorry. Experts recommend keeping the thermostat at the same temperature day and night. If you plan to be away during cold weather,

leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F. Do not turn your heater off. Protect your pipes. Let the cold-water drip from a faucet to help prevent your pipes from freezing. Open the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals out of the reach of children and/or pets. Keep the garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage. How to Thaw Frozen Pipes — If you turn on a faucet and only a trickle comes out, you may have a frozen pipe. If you suspect the pipes are frozen, be careful when thawing them out because if the pipe has burst, the water will come flowing out and flood your home. Turn off the water at the main shut-off valve. This is usually at the water meter or where the main lines enter the house. You may be able to thaw a frozen pipe with warm air from a hair dryer. Start by warming the pipe as close to the faucet as possible, working toward the coldest section. As you heat the frozen pipe and the ice plug begins to melt, you want the water to be able to flow through. Running water through the pipe will help melt ice in the pipe. If your pipes freeze call a plumber immediately.

COMMENTARY

A

recent news report recounted how a school teacher told her students that Thanksgiving should be a national day of mourning instead of a national holiday, referring to the plight of First Nations peoples being displaced by European migration. However, I believe that the American story is somewhat unique and deserves a more sympathetic hearing. A Christian perspective of our history hints at a Divine intervention at key points that led to the formation of the American nation. By a “Christian perspective” I refer to biblical references that state God owns the earth and all that is within it; that He determines the

branch is locally operated. In the same spirit, all donations collected will go directly back into the communities they were collected in. Over the years, Delta Liquid Energy has pledged thousands of dollars to support these organizations and others like them. This year they have committed to donat-

ing $7,500 company-wide to purchase toys, gift cards, and non-perishables to help these organizations. In addition, they will also be matching all donations received. Help your local neighbors in need by donating, and your contribution will be doubled. For the year 2022, there are

times, places, boundaries and duration of all nations in accordance with His will and plan. It means that God, being God, gets to decide, not us, how long a nation exists as such. America is not exempt from God’s will regarding having a divine clock on our lifespan as a nation. Many Christians believe we are a “covenant nation,” meaning our founders made a covenant with God at our founding and as such we are both blessed and bound by their pledge to uphold His ordinances. To reinforce our roots as being exceptional in history we should take a closer look at some of the events that led to our founding and growth across the continent. I’m sympathetic towards the people that were here before us but I also sense that there was a greater purpose for the way events unfolded over the centuries. Think about it: a group of pilgrims being persecuted in England for their religious faith flee with their families as a wrathful English king pursues them. They board a small ship and

endure four months of hardship to reach the American shores. Expecting to land in Virginia, a storm blows them hundreds of miles off-course and they land in early winter in December off the coast of Massachusetts. The weather is bitterly cold, their first encounter is with hostile tribes forcing them to sail further up the coast to today’s Plymouth. They establish a covenant with God before they land, (the Mayflower Compact) on how they will govern themselves and land at a site abandoned by local tribesmen; the previous occupants had died off from disease years earlier. During the harsh winter half the pilgrims die and the rest are sure to follow but an Indian emerges from the forest, befriends them, shows them how to plant, hunt, fish and survive in their new home. It’s not just any Indian, but a man previously kidnapped 10 years prior by European sailors, taken to Europe where he learns English and eventually returns to America to emerge at just the right time

That is followed by an unexpected feast in the late fall with their new friends as 90 Indians show up for dinner, which lasts several days, feasting on deer, fish and yes, even turkey. The peace made with these Indians lasts nearly 50 years until further immigrants, not so religiously devout, cause friction to evolve into war, setting a pattern of war and peace for nearly 300 years between the peoples. This pattern of coincidences continues throughout our history. George Washington distinguishes himself in the French and Indian War rallying militia and British troops during an ambush of British forces by the French and Indians on the Monongahela in western Pennsylvania in 1755.

requested a commission in the British Army but fortunately for us was refused. During the Revolution Washington continued to display exceptional battlefield courage and many believe, Divine protection. During the Battle of Long Island (1776), the American patriots under Washington were defeated and cornered against the East River. The British could have finished us off that evening but their commander inexplicably decides to wait until morning. That night a heavy fog descends over the American encampment as a stiff breeze downriver kept the British fleet from blocking the American’s escape. That night Washington’s army silently fled in boats across the river, the British finding only an abandoned encampment in the morning, allowing the American Revolution to survive. A half century later in the War of 1812, another American leader, Andrew Jackson, has a similar experience at the Battle of New Orleans (1815)

against the British. Once again a heavy fog conceals American forces, weather disrupts British logistics and sets conditions for an American advantage. That battle occurs after the war is technically over but the British government deceitfully orders their military commander to continue advancing up the Mississippi to cut off American expansion to east of the Mississippi River. Their defeat by Jackson preserved the Louisianna Purchase made by President Jefferson from the French and enabled America’s expansion to the Pacific Coast. Our history is replete with such examples as we formed an imperfect but free nation. The thousands of migrants crossing our southern border every day still see sanctuary and hope in America. They see America as exceptional even as many of us have forgotten our heritage and blessings. Take a moment this week to thank God for our many blessings and that He continues to preserve and protect us.

DARRELL LOUIS TWISSELMAN 1932 – 2022

D

arrell Louis Twisselman passed away at the age of 90 on October 23, 2022, in Bakersfield, California, surrounded by family, including his wife of 69 years, Nola C. Twisselman. Darrell was born to Dorothy and Carl Twisselman on September 4, 1932, in Paso Robles, California. He grew up in rural eastern San Luis Obispo County on his family’s cattle and sheep ranch in Choice Valley, later moving to the Temblor Range in McKittrick, California, and attending McKittrick Elementary School and Taft Union High School. Darrell was a character, a jovial and endlessly curious man with a fervor for life and fascination with people. He often credited his mother Dorothy for instilling in him those qualities, along with his hunger to learn. This eventually led him to attend the University of California,

Berkeley, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business, a stepping stone for many ventures ahead. He met his wife, Nola Cooper, a farmer’s daughter, at a Carrisa Plains Farm Bureau dance. The two were married on March 28, 1953, during his senior year of college. Together they raised eight kids, Rowland, Martin, Timothy, Cindy, Joel, Nolan, Andrew, and Teresa. After moving to the Carrisa Plains and working for his father-in-law for one year, Darrell realized that his heart was in cattle ranching, not the farming business. He continued his family’s legacy by running commercial cattle on the Temblor Range. His fascination for breeding cattle led him to raise and supply bucking bulls for stock contractors for over 25 years, even earning himself a top-selling bucking bull at the National Finals Rodeo. Darrell was recognized as the 1990 San Luis Obispo County Cattleman of the Year, but he regularly stated that he was not in the cattle business but rather in the land business. Aside from raising livestock, he was a longtime prospector, mining gypsum, clay, and gravel in rural San Luis Obispo and Kern Counties for over 30 years. He was the driving force behind the development of one of the largest solar farms in the

world in 2011, the Topaz Solar Farm, on his ranch in Carrisa Plains, California. An avid conservationist, he took great pride in making the most of his resources and being a good steward of the land, developing water sources and rangeland habitat to not only support cattle but wildlife as well. He worked closely with the Fish and Wildlife’s Public Lands Management to bring pronghorn antelope back to the region along with the tule elk relocation project. His family and friends would agree that Darrell was the kind of person who was always up for a challenge. One of his staple quotes was, “There are no perfect solutions, only intelligent choices.” He was a gambler in both the casino and in life, always betting on himself and his lucky number, black 29 on the roulette wheel. Some joke that he may have been one of the luckiest men alive. He even won a Ford pick-up truck at the Cow Palace that his family recalls him driving around the ranch and gathering cattle until the tailgate fell off, far more than once. To say that Darrell never met a stranger is an understatement. He was generous, unapologetically outspoken, and loved a good audience and a fresh ear. An avid reader, he regularly stayed up to speed on current events

and issues from all sides of the political spectrum. Whether he agreed with you or not, he took pleasure in playing devil’s advocate and encouraging people to think outside the box. W hile his resume of accomplishments are far and wide, without a doubt, his greatest pride and joy was his family. His “happy place” was seeing his family working together, gathering cattle horseback on the ranch or in a branding pen. Whether it was rodeo events across the country, local high school and collegiate sports, or 4-H & FFA livestock shows at the California Mid-State Fair, you could always find Darrell proudly watching from the stands in his felt cowboy hat adorned with his signature gold TC cattle brand pin. He felt strongly about giving his kids, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and future generations deep family roots with which they could grow from, whether that growth kept them on the ranch or took them far and wide. He lived vicariously through the lives of his family, imparting wisdom where he could and finding joy in hearing about their latest adventures in business and in life. Darrell often told his family, “You’ ll get your reward in heaven.” They like to think he’s found a new

EVENT

audience among the angels and is enjoying an abundance of rewards for a life welllived and a family well-loved up in the clouds. Darrell is survived by his siblings Marlis Balogh, Carl F. Twisselman, and Marjorie Miller; his children Rowland (Cathie) Twisselman, Martin (Denise) Twisselman, Timothy (Karen) Twisselman, Cindy (Mark) Switzer, Joel (Debra) Twisselman, Nolan (Stacey) Twisselman, Andrew (Lorie) Twisselman, Teresa (Richard) Brander, 21 loving grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren. Darrell was preceded in death by his siblings Kathryn Anne and Kenneth Twisselman and his parents Dorothy and Carl Twisselman. The mountains on the ranch were Darrell’s church. In the 1960s, when his kids were young, he built the family pond near his home, which has grown and expanded over the years. It has become a beloved gathering place for family and friends over the years, welcoming visitors from far and wide. Please join the family for a celebration of life on March 25, 2023, at Twisselman Pond. More details to be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Darrell Twisselman to the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation.

KRISTIN SMART CASE

Cuesta Concord Chorus Sings Paul Flores Files Motion to Delay Sentencing in Holiday Spirit

The chorus group will perform holiday songs at the Atascadero Lake Pavilion BY BLAKE ASHLEY FRINO-GERL

ATASCADERO — After surviving “virtual choir” during COVID, Cuesta Concord Chorus will be

returning to the stage at the Atascadero Lake Pavilion on Dec. 4 at 3 p.m. The community chorus has run through Community Programs at Cuesta College since 2005. Cassandra Tarantino, founder and director of the chorus group, says that they will be providing a traditional holiday concert featuring Vivaldi’s “Gloria” (with

orchestra) as well as traditional holiday carols and poems. There will also be a holiday bake sale prepared by the chefs in the chorus. Tickets are $20 and $5 for student rush, but are free to veterans and veteran’s spouses as a part of their 10-year-long veteran outreach program. For tickets, visit tickets. cuesta.edu.

His sentencing is currently scheduled for Dec. 9 BY CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — A hearing will be held next week to consider Paul Flores’ motion to continue his Dec. 9 sentencing to a later date. The Monterey County Superior Court announced on

Monday, Nov. 21, that a hearing has been scheduled for Friday, Dec. 2, at 9 a.m. in department 4. Flores was found guilty on Tuesday, Oct. 18 of the first-degree murder of 19-yearold Cal Poly student Kristin Smart. The 19-year-old Cal Poly student went missing following a Crandall Way party over Memorial Day weekend in May 1996. His father, Ruben Flores, 81,

was found not guilty of accessory after the fact. Ruben was accused of helping his son hide Kristin’s remains. While Kristin’s remains have not been found, she was legally declared dead in 2002. The trial was moved to Salinas after San Luis Obispo County Judge Craig van Rooyen ruled the father and son would not receive a fair trial in SLO County.

McPrice Myers Partners with Must! Charities Donations made through their Buck a Bottle Initiative STAFF REPORT

PA S O RO B LES — McPrice Myers is investing in the greatest social needs facing the Paso Robles Wine Region one “buck,” one bottle at a time. Partnering with Must! Charities, they kicked off a Buck a Bottle initiative in 2022 and in the first half of the year alone raised over $20,000. And it’s that easy — they are simply donating one buck for every bottle sold throughout the year. Billy Grant, Head of Business Development explained McPrice Myers decision to partner with Must! Charities was easy, “Must! Charities is unique because they don’t just write checks. A plan is built around each charity recipient to ensure benchmarks are met and 100 pecent of donations are effectively invested to meet critical needs in our community.” Must! Charities identifies community needs through research-driven data and collaborates with existing nonprofits to maximize donation dollars. Recent collab-

orations include building a state-of-the-art Boys and Girls Club in Paso Robles and launching a $1.3M project with the Vineyard Team to provide educational scholarships to children of farmworkers. Additionally, investments are being utilized to construct a 21st Century Call Center with Transitions-Mental Health Association to address the growing mental health issues among the youth throughout the Central Coast. In Northern San Luis Obispo County Must! Charities is building awareness and local businesses are supporting the community in which they live. In addition to McPrice Myers, dozens of local businesses have committed to the Must! mission of Give Where You Live with a Buck a Bottle initiative. Since its inception, Must! Charities partners generated over $1M through the Buck a Bottle initiative. “The Paso Robles wine industry is one of the largest economic engines in our community,” says Becky Gray, Director of Must! Charities. “The Buck a Bottle concept is an easy way to incorporate philanthropy into business models and infuses money from outside our region into our local economy to increase resources available to our community.”

Thanksgiving for Paso Robles Returns For the 38th Year By CAMILLE DEVAUL

F

or 38 years, Thanksgiving for Paso Robles has provided homemade meals for anyone who comes to their table on the third Thursday of November. Thanksgiving for Paso Robles is a celebration of thanks serving over 1,500 men, women, and children from all communities, a traditional Thanksgiving meal at no cost. A true expression of community that brings diverse people together to share the day with others. “We welcome all to come enjoy a dinner with us whether they have a financial need or a social need and just need to be with people,” said Chairman David Kudija. “There’s a lot of people in the area who are just by themselves and would embrace having companionship, and we welcome them

with open arms.” One hundred percent funded by donations and run by volunteers, it costs about $9,000 and 200 people to put on the annual dinner. Volunteers begin prepping and cooking the meals on Monday and are ready to serve almost 2,000 people by Thanksgiving Thursday. David explains the operation as a one-day restaurant. Everything is set up, served, and then taken down all in one day. It is a lot of work, but when speaking with David, it sounds pretty worth it. Thanksgiving for Paso Robles starts looking to volunteers in October. Assistance is needed for various jobs throughout the week and day of the dinner. Volunteers helps raise money for the supplies, pick up, and then prepare the meals. Then its pre-cleaning, decorating, setting tables and the best part — serving the

meals. But it doesn’t stop there! There is still a job for bussing and cleaning up the aftermath. The meals are made with love at the Culinary Academy in Paso Robles. “The Culinary Academy has stepped up the last two years and done a great job supporting our effort and we appreciate it,” said David. On the menu, this Thanksgiving will again be a traditional meal with homemade oven-roasted turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing, mixed vegetables, salad, candied yams, cranberry sauce, rolls, and house-baked pie. This year, David expects to have a full dining room. The traditional sitdown meal is complete with fine china, table cloths, and plenty of good company. But, if you are unable to make it to the dinner, volunteers are happy to bring your

meal to you. And remember, everyone is welcome to the table at Thanksgiving for Paso Robles. Sit-down Meal Serving dinner from noon to 2 p.m., all are welcome to

enjoy a hand-cooked sitdown Thanksgiving meal at no cost. Delivery For those who are homebound, volunteers can deliver a warm Thanksgiving meal. Call the committee at (805)

239-4137 by November 19 to schedule a delivery. For more information on Thanksgiving for Paso Robles or to sign up to volunteer or donate, visit thanksgivingforpasorobles.com

The Biggest Meal of the Year

W

By BARBIE BUTZ

hen I was growing up, Thanksgiving dinner was truly one of the biggest meals my family prepared all year. I say family because we often rotated the location. My grandparents and my aunts and uncles all lived in and around Arcadia in Southern California, so it was easy to get the family together without much travel time. We always had turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, fresh cooked green beans, candied sweet potatoes, a relish platter with black olives (so the little boys could pop them on the tips of their fingers), a molded raw cranberry salad, homemade hot rolls with homemade jam, and of course “Ocean Spray” Cranberry Sauce. Desserts were pretty traditional, like pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and apple pie. When our son Dan was born in November of 1964, my mother added Dan’s favorite cake, a Chocolate Potato Cake with gum drops, raisins, and chocolate fudge frosting, so we could celebrate his birthday with everyone. Through the years, I have seen changes in the recipes for the sides we serve with our turkey that help us branch out. As Martha S. used to say, “It’s a good thing!” For instance, try this next recipe for sweet potatoes, using pineapple instead of the traditional marshmallows. Pineapple Sweet Potato Bake Ingredients: • 6 large sweet potatoes (about 41⁄2 pounds)1 • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks • 1 cup sugar • 2 tablespoons cornstarch • 1⁄2 cup butter, cubed • 16 maraschino cherries • Ground cinnamon Directions: Place sweet potatoes in a large kettle and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool slightly. Peel and cut each potato lengthwise into quarters; cut each quarter into two or three wedges. Place in a greased

13-inch x 9-inch baking dish. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Sprinkle pineapple over potatoes. In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the reserved pineapple juice until blended. Add butter. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over potatoes and pineapple. Top with cherries; sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 servings. You might eliminate the sweet potatoes and replace them with this next recipe. Some markets offer packages of butternut squash already peeled and cubed, saving you time. Spiced Carrots and Butternut Squash Ingredients: • 5 large carrots, cut into 1⁄2 inch pieces (about 3 cups) • 2 cups cubed peeled butternut squash (1-inch pieces) • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar • 1 tablespoon olive oil • 1 tablespoon honey • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin

• 1⁄4 teaspoon chili powder Directions: Place carrots and squash in a 3-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; drizzle over vegetables and toss to coat. Cook, covered, on low for 4-5 hours or until vegetables are tender. Gently stir before serving. Serves 6. Instead of traditional green beans, switch to this next recipe and wait for the raves. Blue Cheese Green Beans Ingredients: • 4 teaspoons half-and-half cream • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or cider vinegar • 1 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese • 11⁄2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese • 1⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano • 1/8 teaspoon salt • 1/8 teaspoon pepper • Pinch sugar • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled Directions: Place the first eight ingredients in a blender;

cover and process until combined. Gradually add oil in a steady stream, processing until smooth; set aside. Place the beans in a large saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and place in a serving bowl. Drizzle with the blue cheese mixture and sprinkle with bacon. Serves 4 In place of or in addition to your menu, try this cranberry sauce. Cherry Cranberry Sauce Ingredients: • 11⁄2 cups sugar • 11⁄2 cups water • 4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (1 pound) • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) pitted tart cherries, drained Directions: In a large saucepan, cook sugar and water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and cherries. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, until cranberries begin to pop, about 6 minutes. Reduce heat; cook 20 minutes longer or until thickened. Pour into a serving dish. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Yield: 3 1⁄2 cups.

I suggest that on Friday you try to schedule a visit to Studios on the Park and visually treat yourself to the exhibitions that are there for your enjoyment. Later in the day, be prepared to experience the Paso Robles Holiday Lighting Ceremony. There will be candlelight caroling, greetings from City officials and greetings from Mrs. Claus and the Elves.

Y

ears ago, I got a call from a college student who was doing his Senior Project in order to graduate. He told me he had a groundbreaking idea and wanted my opinion of it. I asked him what his BIG IDEA was, and he replied, “containerized shipping.” As the son of a long haul trucker, I had to break the news to him that his idea was already being implemented as everything from cheap Chinese toys to apples and oranges are now shipped in modules that can easily be craned on to a truck’s trailer or a railroad car. “I realize that,” he said. “My idea is to use those same containers to haul livestock.” Whoa! Now that was a new idea! I suppose the caller wanted to duplicate Fred Smith’s outlandish scheme he outlined in a Yale economics class paper that earned him a C grade. The caller wanted to do for livestock what Fred Smith had done for

important paperwork and packages when he later created Fed Ex based on that college paper. “Shipping livestock in containers is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard,” I told the young man. “That’s something a lonely sheepherder might think up, but certainly not an intelligent cattleman.” Believe me, if it would have been a great idea I’d have stolen it and with all the money I made I would’ve bought a big, beautiful ranch where it rains on a semi-regular basis and I would have stocked it with the prettiest cows you ever laid your eyes on. I’d have bought a fairly recent model pickup with a heater and air conditioner that work, a dog that didn’t chase cows and a horse that did; maybe even a brand new vacuum cleaner for my wife. I proceeded to outline all the reasons why containerized shipping for livestock would never happen. “Ranchers would have to buy these containers and have a big crane at the ranch to load them. Then they’d ship them to an auction market which would also have to have several big cranes like those that dot the landscape in Long Beach and Seattle. That would be a sizable

investment and would probably be a deal breaker right there. They’d have to unload the cattle to sell them and then load them again to ship them and it has been my experience that getting cattle to enter a dark confined space is hard enough the first time but to have to do it multiple times would drive a man to drink. Besides, what’s the benefit?” “I’ve interviewed several truckers for my paper and they all said that one of their biggest problems is finding back-hauls. With my system that problem is eliminated.” “Not really,” I replied. “It’s not like you can pour a bunch of oranges into a container previously used to haul hogs. At least not without giving the oranges a rather rank aftertaste.” “You don’t get it, do you?” said the student. “The trucker would unload hog modules in California and load other containers holding citrus, computers, veggies or cheap stuff from China. Bingo, the problem of backhauls is solved.” “Have you actually tried picking up a container with cattle in it? What about the acid rain that falls out if you get my drift? Not to mention what happens when

was never fond of the colder months of the year growing up. Over the years, I’ve woven a tapestry of joy from the blessings this time of year always brings. It begins with pumpkin spice everything in November and transitions to eggnog everything in December. Enter the mittens, scarves, beanies, sweaters, warm socks, and jackets as the days get shorter and the nights get colder. Cozying up by the fire with warm blankets and holiday movies that warm the heart brings a unique contentedness to my soul. Reaching the pinnacle of the dark on the winter solstice, the inner stirring of the anticipation of more

light brings comfort. After two months of feasting and gathering, we begin again — a new year that brings hope, promise, and a fresh perspective for all. This is a beautiful time of year to be grateful for the blessings in our lives, the good, the lessons, and for simply being alive here and now. God’s greatest gift to us is life, and our greatest gift in return is that of sharing our radiant light, our love, with others. We have overcome much this year, and while we can’t be sure of what the future holds, we can be confident that the love of God prevails. Whatever your faith and belief, it’s essential to know how loved and adored you are by your creator. You are blessed beyond measure, and things will work out; they always do. Aside from pumpkin spice, eggnog, and all the things that bring warmth, I believe the greatest joy of all is the light and love of the Divine. That spark

you feel when in the presence of family and friends, that’s God. May the warmth, coziness, and love you experience in your togetherness this season spill over into the other parts of your life such that you are inspired to forge ahead with hope and zeal. As a child, Christmas Eve was thrilling for me. I recall being so totally excited and filled with anticipation of my good in the form of presents that I could hardly sleep that night. Let us carry that same childlike joy, wonder, and awe throughout our days and into our nights. Contemplate and give thanks for the many gifts and beautiful blessings already here. Simultaneously, let us wait in joyful anticipation for the infinite bounty that continues to pour into our lives from the kingdom of heaven within - light, forgiveness, trust, prosperity, love, faith, courage, joy, strength, and more. As the end of the year approaches, I love taking the

a great time putting it together. Snappy Snackers Ingredients: • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese • 1/8 pound Blue cheese • 2 tablespoons finely chopped celery • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion • dash cayenne • mayonnaise, just enough to moisten • 1 cup chopped pecans • crackers Directions: Blend cream cheese and Blue cheese together. Add celery, onion, and cayenne. Mix with just enough mayonnaise to moisten. Shape into a log and roll in chopped pecans. Refrigerate if not serving immediately. Serve with crackers Note: For the Christmas holidays, don’t forget to garnish the log with a sprig of artificial holly and berries. Enjoy the season. Cheers!

the load shifts and hogs or feeder cattle start falling from the sky. I’m sorry but I think you should probably pick another topic.” You can imagine my surprise years later when I put together a load of Polled Hereford heifers to be shipped to Japan. When I arrived at the airport in Oakland I found out they were to fly there in shipping containers that looked remarkably like those you see on trucks now days. A couple years after that I did a story about lambs being shipped here by the boatload from Australia that fattened on the trip over and they were handled exactly like containerized cargo. I was shocked and disgusted to discover that your average wether from Australia has been on more cruises than I have. The young college student who called me with his BIG IDEA never phoned again but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the Australian gazillionaire sheepherder who owns the ships bringing all those lambs here in containers.

time to contemplate my journey over the past year, and I encourage you to do the same. First, ask yourself, “What did I accomplish? What did I create? What could I have done better? Do I have any unfinished business to complete?” Then contemplate what you would love to see made manifest in your life and the world in the coming year. In what way would you like to get to know yourself better? Finally, choose a word for yourself that embodies your intention for the coming year and pick a theme song to match it. Remember that you are the reason for the season. Thank you for being a beneficial presence on the planet. I celebrate you, and God does too. Happy HanuKwanChriSolstiMas! Rev.

CROSS COUNTRY

Bearcats Girls Cross Country Finish Second in CIF The team moves forward to State meet on Saturday, Nov. 26 By CAMILLE DEVAUL

PASO ROBLES — This weekend, the Bearcats girls cross country team is heading to State to compete for the Division II championship after finishing in second place at the CIF Central Section Championship on Thursday, Nov. 17. “We pulled off a surprise second,” explained Coach Ivan Huff, whose team was sitting at fifth when they entered the Central Section meet last week. Over 100 teams competed in the Central Section CIF meet at Woodward Park in Fresno, where the Bearcats’ senior runner Sydney Moore took second place as an individual at the meet. Throughout the season, Moore has proven to be a top runner throughout the county, including a first-place finish at the CCAA Mountain and Ocean League Championships 5,000 meters race on Thursday, Nov. 10. According to Huff, this is the second time the Bearcats girls cross country team has qualified for the State meet together. The top two teams from the CIF Central Section Championship qualify to move forward to State. Unlike other high school sports, cross country runners compete as an individual and as a team. At the Central Section Championship, Paso Robles came in second with 118 points finishing behind just Highland Bakersfield, who finished with a scored of 107. “The team all ran their best race of the season on that day, and it paid off,” said Huff, who noted that having your best race at one of the most important meets is difficult. The team will be competing against all of the top Division II teams at the State meet, again at Woodward Park in Fresno, on

Saturday, Nov. 26. Excited for his team, Huff said, “Not that many people get that opportunity to compete at State.” The coach explained that State is always the

goal for the team, but it wasn’t expected for them to make this season. With a smaller team and spread out times, it was a surprise when the team learned it qualified. “When I told them they finished second, they

couldn’t believe it,” said Huff. “I couldn’t believe it. They were happy ... when you don’t expect it, it’s exciting.” Good luck to the Lady Bearcats this weekend as they compete in their last race of the season.

A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by TAMRA JO SCOTT in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN LUIS OBISPO. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that TAMRA JO SCOTT be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s WILL and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The WILL and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act with limited authority. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 12/13/22 at 9:00AM in Dept. 9 located at 1050 MONTEREY STREET, SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA 93408 Your hearing will be in person or via zoom. (Probate) MEETING ID: 161 241 5408 PASSWORD: 79513 You may also access the Zoom information form the court website at https:// www.slo.courts.ca.gov IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code.

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 916-939-0772 or visit this Internet Website www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2022-00110. 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 Website. 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 916-9390772, or visit this internet website www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2022-00110 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.
