Senor Sanchos Sells to New Owner

Leyva announced he sold the restaurant to a 'progressive group with multiple restaurants locally' By CAMILLE DeVAUL

PASO ROBLES — It was announced that Senor Sanchos, a popular Mexican restaurant in Paso Robles, has been sold to a new owner. The restaurant’s now previous owner Carlos Leyva posted the announcement to social media on Thursday, Sept. 22. Leyva opened Senor Sanchos in 1990 at its original location on Spring Street, later adding a second

location on Creston Road. The original location on Spring Street closed in 2014. “To my absolutely wonderful amazing community, employees past and present, vendors, contractors, city workers, emergency responders, and most of all … my customers, I give you all my love and appreciation for keeping us in business for over 32 years,” Leyva said in his announcement. In his announcement, Leyva reflects on the last 32 years with the restaurant and says he is grateful for being a part of the community and the ability to give jobs to local teenagers. But he also comments on the ongoing challenges of owning a restaurant with the competition, cost

of operations increasing, the country’s economic hardships, and the recent pandemic. In 2020, Senor Sanchos was very candid about the difficulty of remaining open due to the pandemic economic aftermath and its continuous “flip-flopping” of COVID-19 regulations. At the time, the community showed great support to keep the restaurant open. “This community is my home,” Leyva said in his post. “You all have been my family and that is something that I will definitely miss.” Leyva continued to explain his declining health prevents him from being an on-site owner and operator. He adds that he has exhausted his investments to keep his employees

and vendors paid, something that has been a concern of his since the start of the pandemic. Leyva announced he sold the restaurant to a “progressive group with multiple restaurants locally.” Senor Sanchos currently has reduced hours and have closed weekday lunches. Additionally, the restaurant is closed on Sundays. “Over three decades of serving you has been so much fun. I’ve always wanted the best for and from employees and the best for my customers (you),” said Leyva. “My time of creating that and actively participating has come to an end. I pass the torch knowing something special continues the legacy on Creston Road.” Leyva says he will be closing Senor

Diablo Canyon Power Plant Working to Extend Operations Approval of Senate Bill 846 allows the power plant to remain open through 2030 By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Extended operations of the Diablo Canyon Power Plan were discussed at the Tuesday, Sept. 27, San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors meeting. With the recent approval of Senate Bill 846 on Sept. 1, Tom Jones with

PG&E submitted a presentation to the board with what is next for the power plant. The bill allows PG&E to take all necessary actions to extend operations of Unit 1 until October 2029 and Unit 2 until October 2030 and provides a $1.4 billion loan to do it. Jones explained with it taking power plants at least two years to contract fuel assemblies, Diablo was running out of time to extend its operations. He added, “If this legislation didn’t occur this year, Unit 1 would not have the opportunity to run after 2024.” The bill, authored by Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham of San

Luis Obispo and Senator Bill Dodd of Napa, was approved earlier this month in the Assembly with a 67-3 vote. While the power plant is looking forward to continuing its operations, they are continuing its decommissioning planning, which includes the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel. Immediate actions Diablo is now taking to ensure future operations include completing their application with Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Typically, NRC requires five years for application approval, and Diablo last filed its application with

NRC in 2009. While Unit 2 is only two years away from its permit expiration, Jones says NRC has “discretion to accept an application.” Diablo is permitted to continue its operations while NRC is in deliberation. To ensure a smooth transition into future decommissioning, Diablo is continuing plans for repurposing and future land use process, and decommissioning procedure revisions. District 1 Supervisor John Peschong reiterated the need for the power plant to create more energy in California. “It is a needed part of the grid to be able to keep the lights on and the

power on, and I know there are people who are going to disagree with that, but I appreciate the work that was put into this,” he said. Additionally, Peschong thanked PG&E and everyone involved for their efforts in keeping the Diablo Canyon Power Plant open. “I do think this is a positive for our community, and I do think it is a positive for the State of California, and I’m glad we were able to get to this point,” said Peschong. The next regularly scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 9 a.m.

Defense Rests Case in Kristin Smart Trial Court is expected to resume on Thursday with closing arguments By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — After over two months of testimony, the defense rested its case in the Kristin Smart murder trial. The prosecution began the trial on July 18 and rested its case just last week — now, one week later, the defense concluded their side of the case on Tuesday, Sept. 27. According to reports, court was adjourned late Tuesday afternoon after Paul Flores’ defense attorney Robert Sanger and his father Ruben Flores’ defense attorney Harold Mesick concluded their presentations. Court is expected to resume on Thursday. On Wednesday, different parties involved in the case will meet to discuss the next steps in the trial in an off-the-record meeting. Paul Flores is on trial for Kristin’s murder. The 19-year-old Cal Poly student went missing following the Crandall Way party over Memorial Day weekend in May 1996. His father, Ruben Flores, is accused of helping his son cover up the crime.

According to a tweet from the podcast "Your Own Backyard," Sanger rested his case due to circumstances beyond their control. The podcast was created and narrated by Chris Lambert, who attended every day of the trial. Lambert recounts that later in court, they learned Sanger’s expert witness, Dr. Jim Ha, was unable to book a flight to Salinas due to the impending hurricane in Florida. Paul’s mother, Susan Flores, was present for the first day in court since opening statements, according to Lambert. Throughout the defense’s turn to call witnesses, Sanger brought several detectives and scientists to the stand. His first witness was Dr. David Carter, a professor at Chaminade University in Hawaii, who spent the past 20 years studying what happens to bodies after death. Dr. Elizabeth Johnson was the next witness called the stand. She is a forensic scientist with a private practice. On Tuesday, Sept. 27, former San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s detective Henry Stewart was called to the stand. Stewart worked alongside another detective in 1996 on the Kristin Smart case. According to reports, Stewart testified that in 2001, he and

another detective worked with the FBI to conduct an undercover investigation to obtain a confession from Paul. Finally, SLO County Sheriff ’s detective Clint Cole was called to the stand. Cole was officially assigned the case in 2017. While on the stand, reports say that Cole follows the ‘Justice for Kristin Smart’ Facebook page and issued concern that the page could jeopardize the investigation. Later in his testimony, reports say Cole told the court that he was aware of a previous search at Susan’s home on Branch Street in Arroyo Grande and that no evidence was collected from there. Closing arguments are expected to take place later this week, with jury deliberations to follow. 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. While Paul and Ruben are being tried together, they have separate juries. Paso Robles Press / Atascadero News will be following this story and update as new information becomes available.

TEMPLETON — An Arroyo Grande man was arrested this week after he allegedly pepper-sprayed a group of political demonstrators on the Vineyard Drive overpass on Highway 101. On Tuesday, Sept. 20, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s responded to an incident on the highway overpass in Templeton. Around 9 a.m., sheriff ’s deputies responded to the scene where a group of approximately six to eight people were holding a peaceful political demonstration on the overpass when a man approached them. According to SLO Sheriff ’s Public Information Officer Tony Cipolla, the man confronted the group with a different political viewpoint, and a heated argument began. Cipolla tells Paso Robles Press that the man pulled out a can of pepper spray and sprayed six members of the group. Deputies arrived and arrested the man, Miguel Angel Olivares, 46, of Arroyo Grande. Olivares was arrested for two counts of elder abuse with great bodily injury because two of the victims were over 65. He was additionally charged for the unlawful use of tear gas and for resisting arrest. All six victims who were peppersprayed were treated by medics at the scene and released. According to Cipolla, the sheriff ’s office is unaware of why Olivares was in Templeton. However, the Vineyard Drive overpass is often used for public and political demonstrations. The following day, SLO County

Democratic Party Chair Rita Casaverde released a statement regarding the incident: As if we needed any more evidence, yesterday’s attack on peaceful Democratic demonstrators at the Vineyard Drive overpass in Templeton tells us just what the MAGA Republicans stand for: violence, intimidation, and attacks on our freedom to vote, our freedom to learn, our freedom to decide if and when to have children. For more than a year we’ve seen the MAGA crowd on this same overpass, but their right to assemble peacefully was respected, as undemocratic and racist as their symbols are. No one attacked them. But, it only took weeks for them to come after our retired neighbors who are rallying in support of freedom and democracy. Yesterday’s violent assault is further proof that the MAGA faction is a dangerous mob of extremists, far outside the political mainstream. Whether they’re standing on rooftops pointing their AK-47s at protesters, using their chemical weapons on our elders, or stripping away our freedom to vote in fair elections, these Trump Republicans continue to choose violence in order to overthrow the will of the people and block the policies most of us favor so they can hold on to power, even though they are in the minority. General election ballots will be in the mail early October, and our freedoms are on the line. Our future depends on keeping these Trump Republicans out of office. Democrats believe in protecting your freedoms, from reproductive rights to fair elections. But MAGA Republicans want to take them away. Our vote is a clear choice between those who will protect our freedoms and Trump Republicans who seek to destroy our country for their own gain. Vote Democratic.

The NONPROFIT Atascadero High School Wellness Center Don Clickard Executive director Atascadero Greyhound Foundation

T

he mental health of United States adolescents recently was described as a “life-or-death crisis. One effective way to address this ongoing challenge is the implementation of school-based mental health Wellness Centers (youth.gov/ youth-topics/youth-mentalhealth/school-based). Many students and their care providers feel more comfortable accessing mental health support at school as school is familiar and trusted. Being on campus enhances access to mental health support by eliminating the barriers of time, transportation, long waitlists, and cost that are prohibitive for many. Atascadero Unified School District is proud of The Wellness Center, located on the Atascadero High School campus. The Wellness Center, established in its current capacity in 2016, is a place of support, inclusion, and growth available at no cost to all our students, their families/care providers, and our staff. We are the first on-site, full-time, professionally staffed Wellness Center in SLO county. Kamela Proulx, LMFT, BCBA, PPS, is the coordinator of the Wellness Center and supervises services provided by qualified pre-licensed therapists. Sessions take place before, during, and after school on both a scheduled and drop-in basis. Our goal is to address immediate needs, help build skills, then facilitate the transition to a community therapist if long term or a higher level of care is needed. The AHS Wellness Center does not make mental health diagnoses or conduct psychological testing. The Wellness Center focuses on: 1) Student Suppor t Services: individual, group, and family therapy and school-wide events/activities.

Students gather here to socialize, eat lunch, and hold club meetings. The Wellness Center removes barriers by being safe, accessible, confidential, and free. 2) Stigma Reduction and Awareness: dedicated to raising awareness of behavioral and mental health issues related to all young people. We address mental health stigma reduction, bullying, suicide prevention, health & wellness promotion, inclusivity, and parent/student education about related topics. 3) Behavioral Health Career Pathways – guest speakers and forums educate students about the variety of career choices in the behavioral health field. These events are held at accessible times, and any AHS student may attend. “The AHS Wellness Center does everything to make you feel safe at school and helps you express yourself.” JRF, 12th grade, May 2022. The risks of not addressing mental health challenges in youth include problems becoming more severe, reduced school performance, substance use and risk-taking behaviors, incarceration, and suicide. “Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among people age 15 to 24 in the U.S. Nearly 20 percent of high school students report serious thoughts of suicide, and 9 percent have made an attempt to take their lives, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.” Wellness Centers can help mitigate these risks. “The AHS Wellness Center is the epitome of welcoming, supportive, patient, and kind. I have always felt emotionally safe and cared for in this place, with these people. I appreciate every moment spent here and hope to see it grow and shine.” ZG, 10th grade, May 2022 To find out more about the AHS Wellness Center, please visit sites.google.com/atasusd. org/ahs-wellness-center/home. We welcome your questions and your support!

In 1960 he was awarded the Scholar-Athlete award by the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame. He graduated in 1961 from Paso Robles High School.

After the army, he enrolled at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and graduated in 1970 with a BS Degree in Business Administration and went to work for Arthur Andersen in the Los Angeles office. In June of 1976, he started the commercial audit division for Oppenheim, Appel & Dixon in the Century City office. At the end of 1976, he was offered the position of Vice President of Finance for Plus Products in Irvine, CA. In 1979 he joined with two former Arthur Andersen employees to form the CPA firm of Halcrow, Rose and

Meridian High School in Idaho and graduated from Boise Jr. College in 1945. She enrolled in the Nursing Corps at the University of Oregon School of Nursing in Portland, but did not complete her courses in order to marry Edward Hughell in 1946 while he was a student at Oregon State University in Corvallis. Peggy joined a secretarial pool in this community until her firstborn, Jim, arrived. Ed graduated from OSU Corvallis and moved the family to Portland so that Ed could attend the University of Oregon Medical School. When Jim was old enough, Peggy worked as the medical secretary for the U of O Pathology Department, taking advantage of the vocabulary she had learned in nursing school.

After Ed’s graduation, they moved to Fresno, CA, for Ed’s internship, followed by two years of surgery residency. Barbara and David were born in Fresno. After completing his residency, the family moved to Atascadero, where Ed had a private medical practice for 17 years. Celia and Mike were born during that time. Peggy had fond memories of their summer 1973 European bicycle trip with Celia and Mike just before moving to Merced with Ed so that he could start a Family Practice residency program in Merced, CA. This was in connection with the University of California Medical School at Davis. Under Ed’s leadership, this program was successful and expanded. Sadly, Mike was lost during this time

in a tragic automobile accident. Peggy reports that she and Ed clung to each other and to the rest of the family to recover from this tragedy. Ed desired a new experience, and Peggy joined him in 1979 for a 3-year term of United Methodist Church mission service at Ganta Hospital in Liberia, West Africa. She remembers this as a challenging time, but it brought them even closer together. On their return to the United States, Ed was given the opportunity to return to his old position as director of the residency program in Merced. Ed enjoyed returning to this work and later attempted to retire several times before moving to Cambria, CA, to build their “Dream Home” in 1997. They lived in Cambria

for a dozen years before relocating in 2010 to Merrill Gardens retirement home in Santa Maria, CA. Peggy recalls this as a happy time when she and Ed were very much in love. In 2020 they moved to Rohnert Park to live with their granddaughter Celia and her husband, Enrique. It was a wonderful place to spend their last two years. Peggy missed Ed greatly after his death in March of this year. She stayed in Rohnert Park, enjoying frequent visits with her loving family until she followed Ed on September 15. Peggy will be remembered for her outgoing and loving nature in all the communities where she lived. She was active in many aspects of the community, from church leadership to dancing, tennis, and civic orga-

nizations. She is survived by her children, Jim (Alice) Hughell of San Ramon, CA; Barbara (Paul) Rose of Atascadero, CA; David (Edith) Hughell of Turrialba, Costa Rica and Celia ( Jeff ) Schahczenski of Whitehall, MT; as well as ten grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on October 8 at 11 am at the Cambria Presbyterian church at 2250 Yorkshire Drive. Please RSVP to blrose52@ outlook.com for the reception following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cambria Adult Resources Education & Support (2700 Eton Road; Cambria, CA 93428 ) or The Cambria Presbyterian Church (2250 Yorkshire Dr. Cambria, CA 93428)

From the Right and the Left: Sanctuary Cities and the Debate over Immigration

Lance Simmens is an independent columnist for The Malibu Times, he along with Don Schmitz write a bi-weekly column on national topics from the perspective of their political leanings you can forward any comments you have to editorial @malibutimes.com.

anctuary cities vote to deny cooperation with Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE). In 2017, the City Council declared Malibu a sanctuary city prohibiting using city funds and resources to enforce federal civil immigration law, but are the proclaimed cities and states willing to actually be sanctuaries? Our border with Mexico has completely broken down. Arrests have topped 2 million this year, a historic high, and over 750 have tragically died trying to cross the border. Small county morgues in Texas are overwhelmed. El Paso has 1,500 illegal migrants PER DAY they contend with, and their shelters are overwhelmed. Texas is now busing some to self-proclaimed sanctuary cities like Washington, D.C., and New York, who are complaining bitterly they don’t have the resources to take care of them. Perhaps, but neither do the border towns. The Biden administration has been flying and busing thousands to New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, and others, with both Democrat and Republican congressmen complaining that there was no coordination, warning, or resources. Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds stated they were investigating whether the administration was conducting a “criminal act of human trafficking” by sending planeloads of migrants to their state without coordination. Four planeloads were sent to Chattanooga, Tennessee, last year, whereupon Sen. Marsha Blackburn said in May 2021, "It is absolutely unacceptable if the Biden administration is facilitating a mass migration without any input or oversight

from Tennesseans and the affected communities.” Now, for overtly political reasons, Florida and Texas are sending migrants to New York, dropping them off next to the VP’s mansion in Washington, and Martha’s Vineyard, where the Obamas reside. The latter were all relocated to a military base within two days. Apparently, when they declared themselves a sanctuary, they didn’t mean that kind of sanctuary! The White House decried it a “cruel, premeditated political stunt”. California Gov. Gavin Newsom asserted it might be kidnapping. An immigration attorney lamented that no one called ahead to alert the local government. Does this sound familiar, like the complaints levied by local governments against the Biden administration? Red state governors and their supporters are amused that the lofty declarations of northern blue cities seem to evaporate when they share the pain to house, provide health care, and schooling to undocumented immigrants. The whole thing is tragic; these are our fellow human beings. They are pawns in our dysfunctional national debate over the border, which has raged for decades. However, the Biden administration threw the doors open. Caravans of thousands walked to the border wearing Biden campaign T-shirts. Drug cartels make over $1 billion annually smuggling people, forcing them to carry their drugs, decorating “rape trees” with the underwear of the women they routinely assault on the journey. Interestingly, the Department of Homeland Security reported that illegal entries plummeted 87 percent when the wall was built in the Yuma sector, and Biden authorized completion of that section this July. But although taxpayers had already paid for large sections of the border wall elsewhere, Biden halted construction, and taxpayers now pay millions to guard the steel as it rusts in the desert. Some lament air-conditioned busing of immigrants

to other states without having proper arrangements made for them upon arrival. Valid. However, it pales in comparison to our federal government enacting lackadaisical policies whereupon millions of people suffer in the desert on foot, forced into carrying drugs, being murdered and raped by the cartels at whim, to arrive in border states sleeping under bridges. The New York Times reported in July on torture chamber houses in Texas where cartel smugglers mutilated limbs and raped women until their families sent them more money. Fiftythree migrants packed into a tractor-trailer died in June, cooked alive in the heat, the deadliest smuggling incident in our history. Yet this month VP Kamala Harris declared, “We have a secure border”. It’s not secure, it’s a humanitarian crisis. Shame on her, shame on us. Busing of the migrants by Texas and Florida are indeed a political stunt, but an effective one. It is easy to haughtily declare one’s state a sanctuary, but except for California and New Mexico, none of the 11 states that have done so are on the border. They are far from the suffering, and their communities and taxpayers don’t feel the pain. Maybe they should; perhaps they should “walk their talk”. If a community wants to truly be a sanctuary for the plight of the illegal immigrants, they shouldn’t be waiting for desperate border states to bus them to their communities and complain bitterly when they do. They should put their laudable humanitarian mores into action, send the buses on their dime, greet them at their City Hall and escort them into the housing they built for them, make sure they are fed, clothed, and take their children to school. Then, and only then, will they truly be a sanctuary city.

When life is chaotic and uncertain, the result is likely that, as adults, anxiety levels are likely to be higher than if the past was a calmer and more predictable environment. I am especially referring to issues of abandonment resulting from divorce, desertion, illness, or frequent moves. Additionally, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse can severely impact an individual’s sense of security, especially if this abuse occurred at a very early age. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic, which has severely limited social contacts, potentially has a huge impact on the quality of life. In addition, the current social, political and economic atmosphere

has increased uncertainty and instability, with a resultant increase in levels of anxiety. The experts agree that anxiety awareness is the first and most essential step in dealing with anxieties. You can’t deal with what is denied. You also can not have a plan of action to deal with anxieties if their existence is denied. Admitting a person’s feelings, regardless of what they are, sets the stage for dealing with them. Specifically, attempting to identify what is making a person anxious is better than dealing with a global or non-specific sense of dread or anxiety. Note that repressions and denials can adversely impact both physical and mental

health, an example being the connection between repression and increased blood pressure. Once the source of anxiety is identified, then ask yourself, what is the worst thing that can happen? The next step would be to ask yourself: What steps can I take or what things that I can do to minimize anxieties? For example, if a person is worried about passing a driving test, than taking practice tests and studying the drivers booklet would be appropriate steps to take. Attitude can have a big impact on anxiety levels. For example, if a person expects themselves and others to be perfect and make no mistakes, that is a setup for anxiety

and disappointment. I am suggesting that being more accepting of the mistakes and imperfections and others can reduce anxiety. In other words, accepting that illness, accidents, and the unexpected are all part of life can reduce anxiety. It is important to note that the responses to the situations in life are more significant than the actual events. It is how you respond that matters. Whatever a person can do to maximize emotional and physical health can help to deal with anxieties. For example, being tired, not getting enough daily exercise, and having a poor diet all can leave a person vulnerable to anxieties. W ithout denying the

challenges of life, being an optimist, having a positive approach to life, and having faith in the future can all minimize anxiety. Counting one’s blessings and having a sense of humor all are positive approaches which can minimize anxiety. Discussing one’s anxieties with trusted friends or relatives can not only be validating but may give you new perspectives on the issues. Additional resources are hotlines. For example, just go to Google on your phone or computer and type in “hotlines for anxiety attacks.” I hope that this information has been helpful. Your comments or reactions are welcome.

LANCE SIMMENS COMMENTARY

From the Left

A

merica is a nation of immigrants. What distinguishes us from our adversaries is our acceptance, oftentimes quite contentious but acceptance nevertheless, of large populations from all corners of the world. A major difference between our borders and that of the Soviet Union was that ours was largely to control those wishing to come in while the Berlin Wall was specifically designed to prevent citizens from getting out. Americans have been imbued with the certitude that our nation is the land of the free with unbounded opportunity for all those who wish to apply themselves. The abundant diversity of our population has contributed to the notion that we are that shining city on the hill, Lady Liberty welcoming those to our shores, building off the intellect of citizens from all parts of the globe. American history is replete with stories of resistance to immigrants, yet through the centuries, there is little doubt that we as a country have grown to be the leading democratic experiment in the world largely because of our ultimate acceptance of the diversity that graces our shores. We have witnessed large swaths of immigrants during our growth, the Chinese who built the transcontinental railroad from west to east and the Irish who built from east to west, only to be joined at Promontory Summit in 1869, a golden spike driven to unite the nation. Immigrants start businesses. Immigrant-owned businesses create jobs for American workers. Immigrants are also more likely to create their own jobs. Immigrants develop cutting-edge technologies and

companies. Immigrants are our engineers, scientists, and innovators. Immigration boosts earnings for American workers. Immigrants boost demand for local consumer goods. Yet we now find ourselves in a period where anti-immigration policies and politics have wreaked havoc on a divisive electorate and has led to the development of so-called “sanctuary communities,” a political term, not a legal one. According to the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, a sanctuary city is described as “a community with a policy, written or unwritten, that discourages local law enforcement from reporting the immigration status of individuals unless it involves investigation of a serious crime.” California has joined 10 other states declaring itself a sanctuary community while Texas has banned sanctuary cities outright. A closer relationship between immigrant communities and local law enforcement can have positive impacts upon the municipality or state and sanctuary cities; for instance: Sanctuary cities have lower than average crime rates Household incomes are higher in sanctuary cities The poverty rate in sanctuary cities is lower on average than cities without these policies The melting pot theory, tracing back to the 1780s, is often used in the United States to reflect a fusion of nationalities, cultures, and ethnicities. It is a symbol of our nation’s commitment to an accepting society willing to entertain differences and celebrate diversity. It is what distinguishes us from closed societies, and renders us unique and essential in a world that is constantly shrinking due to technological advances. Yet we find ourselves in an uncomfortable position, currently when it comes to policies regarding a rush of immigrants at our borders. Most of us, myself included, are unfamiliar with the processes of immigration. Those wishing to enter our country are essentially listed in three categories: refugees,

asylum seekers, and migrants. According to Amnesty International, “a refugee is a person who has fled their own country because they are at risk of serious human rights violations and persecution there.” An asylum seeker is “a person who has left their country and is seeking protection from persecution and serious human rights violations in another country, but who hasn’t yet been legally recognized as a refugee and is waiting to receive a decision on their asylum claim.” While there is no internationally accepted legal definition of a migrant, it is generally accepted to refer to “people staying outside their country of origin, who are not asylum-seekers or refugees. Some migrants leave their country because they want to work, study or join family … others feel they must leave because of poverty, political unrest, gang violence, natural disasters or other serious circumstances that exist there.” As serious as the immigration problem is, it is absolutely atrocious that some have decided to play politics with people’s lives, particularly people who risk everything to make a better life for their families. The recent actions driven by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey to transport immigrants from their states to sanctuary localities is a bluntly partisan political stunt that borders on illegality at best and inhumanity at worst. Similar stunts have recently included delivering more than 100 migrants to the Washington, D.C., home of Vice President Kamala Harris, as well as other Democrat-led cities such as New York and Chicago. Political theatrics and sophomoric histrionics belittle us all. Our nation is and should be a sanctuary for all those escaping oppression.

Dealing with Anxiety: Awareness is the First Step

Daniel Rich

I

COMMENTARY

f we are to examine anxiety from a comprehensive point of view, the first aspect to look at is the genetic aspect. By that, the question is, what physical and mental health issues did parents and grandparents have? That question is relevant because certain traits and approaches to life tend to get passed down from generation to generation. Was their approach to life the type of approach that could set the stage for an anxious approach to life? Were they perfectionists, having high expectations of themselves and others? The next aspect refers to an examination of childhood, especially early childhood.

Street Address or other common designation of real property: 1524 SIERRA LN PASO ROBLES, CA 93446 Described as follows: As more fully described on said Deed of Trust. A.P.N #.: 009-781-042 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. 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. 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 (855) 976-3916 or visit this Internet Web site www.auction.com using the file number assigned to this case 22001651-1 CA .

Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $42,264.51 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. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell.

ast Sunday, more than 100 residents of the Atascadero community gathered at ABC Church to be introduced to the Atascadero Colony Days Royalty, King and Queen Dan and Ramona Phillips and Parade Grand Marshal Ann Little. The lovely reception was hosted by Quota of Atascadero and kicked off the week of activities for the Colony Days celebration on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This Friday, Sept. 30, the public is invited to meet the Royalty at Wild Fields Brewhouse, 6007 El Camino Real, across from Colony Theater, hosted by owners Jacque and Ryan Fields. Colony Days committee members will be present to talk about the parade and other activities taking place on Saturday in the

the La Lomita Ranch in San Luis Obispo, where we joined some 400 other women to hear the Keynote Speaker, Cynthia Nimmo, a global leader for gender equality, establishing partnerships between corporate, philanthropic, government, and nonprofit sectors to realize a stronger and more sustainable society. This year the 2022 Women’s Legacy Fund Grant Recipients Focused on Women’s Financial Stability, Childcare, and Girl’s Mental Health. Grants totaled $76,000 and went to the Center for Family Strengthening ($40,000), People’s Self-Help Housing ($20,000), and Boys & Girls Club Mid Central Coast ($16,000). This week’s recipe will be a healthy alternative to plain old mashed potatoes, but don’t let the title fool you.

Sunken Gardens. The parade will start at 10 a.m. Saturday morning and run down El Camino Real from Davis Auto Body to West Mall and Palma Ave. by Sunken Gardens. The festival will start immediately after the parade and continue until 3 p.m. There will be a variety of vendors, entertainment, and food to purchase in the Sunken Gardens. Wiener dog and small dog races will start at 12 p.m. According to Colony Days Chairman Karen McNamara, “It will be a day for the community to once again gather safely, with friends and family, to celebrate the founding of Atascadero in 1913. It is truly our community’s celebration for all.” Jeannie Malik and I joined Grenda Ernst at her table on Tuesday, Sept. 20, for the 20th Annual Luncheon of the Women’s Legacy Fund, a fund of the Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County.

loha! I've recently returned from two full weeks of vacation with family in the Hawaiian islands. We spent most of our time in Maui with a quick hop over to Oahu for a few days. The Hawaiian islands have always held a special place in my heart. One reason for this is the spirit of Aloha practiced. To be a living example of the Aloha spirit, one actively practices the principles of Akahai, Lokahi, 'Olu'olu, Ha'aha'a, and Ahonui. Akahai means kindness (grace) expressed with tenderness. Lokahi means unity

(unbroken), expressed with harmony. 'Olu'olu — means agreeable (gentle) conveyed with pleasantness. Ha'aha'a — means humility (empty) forwarded with modesty. Ahonui — means patience (waiting for the moment) sent with perseverance. In a sentence, it is the practice of gentle, unbroken grace delivered with selfless kindness and patience in this moment, now. It is said that a secret of Aloha is that we cannot practice one of the five principles without practicing them all, and all five of them are required to be a living example of the Aloha spirit. The dictionary defines Aloha as a salutation used to say hello and goodbye, but the true spirit of Aloha goes well beyond anything you'll find in a dictionary. In its simplest form, Aloha is love. In 1986, Hawaii lawmakers passed the Aloha Spirit law. This

law defines Aloha Spirit as the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It requires each person to think and emote good feelings toward others. It means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return. The late Aunty Pilahi Paki wrote the law because she foresaw a 21st-century world in deep strife that would look to Hawai'i for healing. Aloha would be its remedy. Perhaps this is why so many travel to the Hawaiian islands for vacation every year, to experience the healing balm of Aloha. On our flight to Maui, the flight assistant spoke on the overhead speaker about an hour before landing, informing us it was time to complete our travel declaration for entering the Hawaiian islands. We were to fill out one document per family. He shared that the

Add cauliflower and garlic cloves; cook, covered 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain; transfer to a food processor. Add remaining ingredients; process until smooth. Return to pan; heat through, stirring occasionally. Note: Serve this side in a black bowl and make it a part of your Halloween menu. The recipe came from my Taste of Home Halloween Cookbook.

sizable inheritance and I figure at this rate I can only last about three more years. The man who sold me this store told me that vegetarianism was a growth business. He said that 3.7 percent of Americans are vegetarians and most of them have higher income levels. He told me Americans are eating 11 percent more vegetables, 7 percent more fruits and a lot more nuts." "Sounds like he knew his fruits and nuts," I said, feeling a little sorry for the owner of the Last Health Food Store in America. "I can't understand it, it seems like such a good location. You are right next door to all those fast food places and they seem to be doing a great business." "I know. I should have put my money into burgers. In a way though I'll be glad when I have to shut down." "Why do you say that?" "You think I enjoy eating this stuff?"

airlines provided them with forms but not ink pens and asked us to practice the Aloha Spirit of love and kindness by sharing our pens if we had them. I completed the document for our group and could hardly wait to share my pen. I jumped up and offered it to whoever needed it. I told them they could keep the pen, too. It felt liberating to do this. There was a warm fuzzy feeling, almost like a buzz from practicing the Aloha spirit of kindness and warmth in caring without expecting anything in return. So, this week, I invite you to practice the Aloha spirit of affection and warm regard toward others. A little bit of Aloha goes a long way. Aloha, a hui hou. And so it is. Rev.

October is Harvest Wine Month in Paso Robles Wine Country

More Than 100 events planned throughout the month of October STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — In Paso Robles Wine Country, harvest is well underway, and no harvest season is complete without a celebration to recognize a year of hard work toward another memorable vintage. October is Harvest Wine Month in Paso Robles, which features individual harvest celebrations at the area wineries, throughout the month. Harvest happens only once a year, so the events are as unique as the vintage with vineyard tours through the fall colors, winemaker dinners featuring savory autumnal flavors, music events into the cool evenings, and the required frivolity of the sticky grape stomp. These events and more await during Paso Robles Wine Country Harvest Wine Month in October. Go to pasowine.com for more information. In years past, Harvest Wine Weekend was celebrated on the third weekend of October. With harvest being as busy as it is, having an event on a single designated weekend is a challenge. Harvest Wine Month now gives wineries more freedom with events happening all through the month of October. This includes more than 100 different events that Paso Wine fans can plan for around their schedules, midweek or weekends! Paso Wine fans can search by day, activity, or winery in the online Harvest Wine Month search tool pasowine.com. Here are some examples of the festivities. For complete information, including exact dates, times, and locations, visit pasowine.com. CASS Winery: Grape Stomp & Tacos, Live Music, and Extended Hours Enjoy an all-you-can-eat taco buffet and grape stomp (October 15) the afternoon away. Tickets

with the 2022 Colony Days’ King, Dan Phillips. In retaliation to a prank Phillips played on him, Davis had 100 door hangers advertising free haircuts printed that could be redeemed at Dan’s Barbershop and left them on cars at their church. Phillips honored every single hanger that was brought into his shop. “Everybody always knew how to watch out for everybody else, and we still have a lot of that,” Pangborn said of all the shared stories. The Tea continued when The Colony Days Committee announced this year’s Colony Days Royalty and Grand Marshal. 2021’s King Mike Byrne pinned Dan Phillips as 2022’s King, and Byrne’s wife Charlotte passed her Queen crown to Ramona Phillips. And while 2021’s Grand Marshal, Joan RexRoth, could not attend the Tea, 2022’s Grand Marshal Ann Little was pinned by Barbie Butz. Special thanks goes out to Jodi Bloom of Bloom N Grow for donating flowers for the Royalty, Vons for donating cut flowers that the Quota ladies arranged, and Atascadero Bible Church for donating their Fellowship Hall for the event. “Quota is very focused on being involved in the community, and this is one thing that we can do that is totally for the community.

used at both the Atascadero and Paso Robles ECHO locations. “That money is used to support the shelter and all the resources we try to provide,” added Lewis. “It supports our case management program. It supports our programs to provide the meals and the showers. All those resources are supported from this event, or partially supported from this event, and it’s critical.” The $35 registration fee included a to-go meal provided by Mark Miranda. He and his team are actually one of the meal teams at ECHO, and once a month, they make the same meal that folks took home at the shelter. Over the years, it’s become a tradition for him to duplicate the meal for Long Walk Home, including his famous barbecued chicken.

the Consent Calendar, citing a conflict and saying that he shouldn’t vote on the item. Councilmember Charles Bourbeau pulled Item 5, Contract for Animal Care and Control Services for Fiscal Years 2022-2025. Items 1 through 3 on the Consent Calendar passed unanimously. Item 4 passed without Dariz voting. After a few questions to staff were answered, Item 5 also passed unanimously.

The Mixer is open to the general public and will take place on Friday, Sept. 30, at Wild Fields Brewhouse starting at 5:30 p.m. “We are putting on the mixer, an introduction, and celebration of the royalty and grand marshall

ECHO also partnered with Camp Ocean Pines this year, and they brought out some educational animals for people to interact with. “It’s one of my favorite times of the year and events we do because it’s just so heartwarming to see how many people show up, and they’re truly here to advocate for those that sometimes don’t have people to advocate for them,” said Lewis of Long Walk Home. “It’s a great event, lots of community spirit.” Lewis went on to say that some of the families currently staying at the Atascadero shelter joined in on the walk. One of the fathers pulled her aside to share how moved he was that so many people in the community cared about people who are in situations like his. If you were not able to make it to the Long Walk Home event but would like to donate to ECHO, you can do so at: www. echoshelter.org/donate.

Community Development Director Phil Dunsmore, Senor Planner Kelly Gleason, and MIT Consultant Genevieve Sharrow brought the Objective Design Standard Project Update before the council. This was a discussion-only topic. “We’re throwing a lot at the wall tonight with the hopes of getting somewhere, and that somewhere is us being able to have the instructions to be able to bring back an ordinance amendment to this City Council that adopts a set of design standards that can

“The site is adjacent to the front access road to ASH (Atascadero State Hospital) on a vacant site near the entry sign to the hospital. The housing sites would be somewhat distanced from the actual ASH facility, but would be closer to ASH administrative buildings and the entry road, close to El Camino Real.”

Both The California Department of Housing and Community Development and the Department of General Services is behind searching for properties to develop. The four other sites that have been announced are Fresno, Covina, Sacramento, and Oceanside. “Since we have a very low inventory of available land for new development, it is very positive news that the state is declaring some of
