they are currently in talks with Almond Acres Charter School and the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District to provide additional support. “We have proven programs

that are used nationwide that we can provide great outcomes with kids in many different communities,” said Boyer. “If we have the capability of doing that in Paso Robles, then we would love to do that.”

In 2016, it became evident to board members that they needed a larger facility due to a growing waiting list for children to get into the club. The half-acre lot, formerly home to the North County

Racquet Association, was donated by a long-time friend of the Boys & Girls Club, Tom Maas. Just before his unexpected passing in 2019, Maas and his wife Kathleen CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

Trustees approved the Request for Proposal (RFP) to find the “best value” contractor. Foundation and site work will be included in the proposals, but the relocatable building will be purchased directly by the district. Additionally, trustees approved a salary update for the Templeton High School (THS) athletic trainer. After reviewing the athletic trainer salary schedule, staff determined the district is on the lower end of payment compared to other districts in the county.

PASO ROBLES — Paso Robles celebrated their second annual Juneteenth Jubilee downtown at the Paso Robles City Park on Saturday, June 18. Juneteenth marks the final stop on June 19, 1865, of Union Major General Gordon Granger arriving in Galveston, Texas, to announce, “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free…” You can see Paso Robles Press’s full story on the meaning behind Juneteenth online at pasoroblespress.com. According to the committee, the Juneteenth Jubilee in Paso Robles is a commitment to an annual celebration build-

ing a movement to recognize the emancipation of slavery and celebrate the excellence of Black culture and freedom. “It was beautiful. Paso came through,” said Paso Robles native Netta Perkins who organized the event. Perkins said that they chose Jackie’s Place, which is a Blackowned catering company from San Jose who provided all the food. “We ran out of food, but that was a good thing. Next year we will be prepared to have way more food,” said Perkins.

Additionally, throughout the day was music and guest speakers. Paso Robles City Mayor Steve Martin was one of the speakers at the event, telling Paso Robles Press, “City staff supported the committee organizing the event. The event was successful and positive. I was pleased to attend and deliver the City Council’s Juneteenth presentation.” “We kept it traditional. This is what Juneteenth’s about, celebrating [being] free-ish and the food and the music,”

said Perkins, “Music always brings the world together. It was amazing.” Perkins, a born and raised Paso Roblan, said about 400 people came to the event, exceeding her original expectations. Paso Robles alumni and former residents came back to Paso for the celebration from as far as Sacramento and Los Angeles. “I felt like with all of them coming back—it was like they put their hands on us and said we’re here for you.

805 AG Kids Expands to San Luis Obispo County The nonprofit supports 4-H clubs, FFA chapters, Grange organizations, and Independent exhibitors By CAMILLE DEVAUL

CENTRAL COAST — The nonprofit organization 805 Ag Kids has announced its expansion to now include support for local ag kids in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, in addition to continuing their fundraising efforts in Ventura County. 805 Ag Kids is a 501c3 nonprofit organization focused on advocating and supporting 4-H clubs, FFA chapters, Grange organizations, and Independent exhibitors. The nonprofit was started in 2019 with board members attending board meetings and ensuring policies met the children’s and chapters’ needs. “There was no one that was bringing these kids together collectively and working in their best interest as a whole,” said 805 Ag Kids CEO Megan Hook. Then in 2020, their support for kids in agriculture grew. With the Ventura County Fair canceled and replaced with an online auction, the people behind 805 Ag Kids knew the prices would be devastating to the kids auctioning livestock. With help from the community, the organization raised $92,000 to help the kids — many of whom get bank loans to fund their livestock projects — with their bottom line. The funds raised amounted to about $431 per kid. The Ventura County Fair, held in August, was again canceled in 2021. So 805 Ag Kids made the move to host their own two-day livestock show in August at the fairgrounds with an online auction.

“We had record-breaking sales thanks to the community really stepping up and helping these kids,” said Hook. Hosting livestock shows were not the organizations goal, but as they saw it, if they didn’t do it then no one would. With participation and members declining in 4H and FFA chapters, having another canceled show would not be an option. “As an organization who prides itself on supporting the next generation in agriculture, it’s upsetting to see kids lose interest and fall out of these programs and clubs and chapters close because there’s not enough interest,” said Hook. “Our job is to try and keep kids interested, help support them financially, and do whatever we can to make sure that they have every opportunity available and that these programs continue,” she continued.

As fairs return to normal, the organization still sees a need to support and re-engage the kids back into the agriculture programs. Many of the FFA and 4-H members don’t come from a generational farm family or don’t have either disposable income or a place to keep their livestock animals. Hook and the organization’s goal is to make sure all the students and members have the opportunity to participate in the agriculture programs. “It’s a good life lesson, of course, but it’s also a matter of these are kids, and we need to do what we can as a community to foster their love of agriculture,” says Hook. Offering support in any way they can and garnering children’s interest in agriculture is ultimately the organization’s goal — which they are now expanding to San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties.

The expansion of the 805 Ag Kids organization has garnered immediate support from the community. As the result of a $90,000 donation from the Gold Coast Toyota Dealers, the Ventura County Fair, the Santa Barbara County Fair, and the California Mid-State Fair will each receive $30,000 to support 805 Ag Kids by way of providing needed improvements and upgrades in the youth livestock departments at each respective fair. “We thought it just made sense that we expand our support to help the ag kids in those areas too,” said Hook. 805 Ag Kids is now accepting donations and sponsorships on their website 805AgKids.com with 100 percent of all online donations going directly to benefit local tri-county area Ag Kids.

SAN LUIS OBISPO — June is National Foster a Pet Month and Woods Humane Society says it needs more foster homes in order to help the many homeless kittens in our community that are too young or too under-socialized to come to the shelter yet. “We need as many foster homes as possible right now,” says Woods Intake and Foster Coordinator Kelsey U’Ren, explaining that June is historically the height of kitten season on the Central Coast, and this year is proving to be no different. She says Woods has 104 kittens in foster homes right now, with more requests coming to them daily. Over the course of the month of May, the organization provided foster care for 147 kittens. Woods North County Customer Service and Volunteer Coordinator Hannah Lowe explains that kittens must be at least two pounds (usually around 8-10 weeks old) in order to be spayed or neutered and made available for adoption. Until then, they require the around-the-clock care of a foster family. Lowe says Woods’ greatest need in the North County location is for fosters willing to bottlefeed. Kittens under the age of four weeks require regular bottle-feeding until their

STAFF REPORT

teeth have grown in and they are able to eat solid food. Meanwhile, at the SLO location, U’Ren says, “We are specifically looking for fosters who want to help socialize ‘spicy’ kittens and get them more comfortable around people and sounds.” Woods has 8 such kittens currently in need of a calm foster home to help them gain comfort with the world. In both cases, Woods Humane Society provides all foster supplies, training and support to its foster families. Potential kitten fosters simply need a safe, confined area such as a crate, closet or separate room for the kittens, and the time and energy to feed them, play with them, handle them, and clean up after them. To help local community members determine whether fostering is right for them, Woods has created a foster page on its website, WoodsHumane.org/Foster, which includes links to the foster application forms for both the SLO and Atascadero shelter locations, an infographic about what to do if you find kittens, as well as its recent kitten season webinar, featuring a bottle-feeding demonstration and answers to frequently asked questions. For information about the foster program, visit woodshumanesociety.org/foster. For more information about Woods, visit WoodsHumane. org or call (805) 543-9316. Woods Humane Society is located at 875 Oklahoma Ave., San Luis Obispo, and at 2300 Ramona Rd., Atascadero.

Jury Selection Delayed for Kristin Smart Trial

tion to law enforcement. The court was to narrow down the jurors to move to the jury selection for Paul Flores on June 20, which has now been delayed one week. There is no set date for when the jury selection will begin for Ruben Flores. Paul and Ruben Flores were arrested at their homes in April 2021, nearly 25 years after Smart’s disappearance. Paul is charged with Smart’s murder. His father, Ruben, is charged as an accessory after the fact, accused of helping hide Smart’s body. Records show that Paul is now in the custody of the Monterey County Jail. Ruben is currently out on bail. Opening statements for the trial are still expected to begin July 6, and the judge has indicated it could last into October.

Trial proceedings postponed because of ‘health concern’; will resume on June 27 By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Due to health concerns, the Flores trial proceedings are postponed until Monday, June 27. Monterey County Court officials announced earlier this week, “The Flores trial proceedings are being postponed one week due to a health concern among one of the trial participants.” Paul and Ruben Flores are charged in connection with the 1996 murder and disappearance of Cal Poly student Kristin Smart (19).

ELECTION

Paso Robles Announces Filing District Attorney Details for 2022 Candidates Office’s Auction Candidate packets beginning Yields Over $100,000 available July 18 with filing

The auction’s proceeds go to local construction company victimized by embezzlement STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — The San Luis Obispo County’s District Attorney’s Office has completed an auction for the sale of items seized as evidence during a criminal investigation involving embezzlement, resulting in $115,540 in victim restitution. The District Attorney’s Office secured the services of SLOCAL Estate Auctions, Inc. based in Morro Bay to auction jewelry, watches, sports memorabilia, designer shoes, handbags, artwork, and other items seized as evidence during the criminal investigation. On March 16, 2021, Joy Noel Wilde (DOB 04/16/1978) of Atascadero was sentenced to 10 years and four months in prison for embezzling money from her former employer, Greg Wiemann Construction, over a three year period. At the sentencing hearing, San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Jesse Marino highlighted the “outrageously large amount of money” taken by Ms. Wilde and concluded that the decade-long prison sentence was warranted “due to its sheer volume.”

Wilde was ordered to pay $877,123 in restitution to her former employer. The investigation revealed that Ms. Wilde had purchased many items using her ill-gotten gains, including jewelry, watches, sports memorabilia, designer shoes, handbags, and artwork. None of the items themselves were stolen, but the items were purchased with stolen funds. For many of the items the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office was able to locate receipts and other proofs of purchase and COA’s (Certificate of Authenticity). To maximize the amount of restitution for the victim, the District Attorney’s Office sought and received a court order authorizing that the seized items be sold at auction, and the proceeds be provided to the former employer. As a result of the auction, which was hosted by SLOCAL Estate Auctions, Inc., the former employer will be provided approximately $115,540 towards the restitution owed by Ms. Wilde. “Embezzlement crimes are significant at several levels,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “In addition to the financial devastation that large scale thefts can wreak on a business, is the very personal impact realized when a long-term employee in a position of confidence violates that trust. The $115,540 in auction proceeds is a significant step to offset the substantial financial loss inflicted by Ms. Wilde.”

deadline Aug. 7 STAFF REPORT

Murderer of Trevon Perry Sentenced STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — District attorney Dan Dow announced on June 21 that Nicholas Christopher Ron Jr. (date of birth 08/16/1996) had been sentenced to 28 years to life in prison for the March 15, 2020, first-degree premeditated murder of Trevon Perry (27). Ron also admitted that he personally used a firearm in the commission of the murder. Trevon Perry’s family initially reported him missing on March 16, 2020. Within days of his disappearance, law enforcement began to investigate the matter as

a possible homicide. An intensive, multiagency, months-long investigation followed. On June 20, 2020, Trevon’s remains were discovered buried in the backyard of Ron’s relative in Riverside, California. Ron was charged with murder, and nine others, including several of Ron’s family members, were charged as accessories to the murder for their varying roles in concealing the crime. On March 15, Ron pleaded guilty to the first-degree premeditated murder of Trevon and admitted he personally used a handgun in the commission of that murder. Today, he was sentenced to 28 years to life in prison by San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Jesse J. Marino. “No number of years in prison could be enough to adequately pay for Trevon’s

senseless death,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “We continue to grieve for Trevon’s family and loved ones. Trevon Perry will always be missed and remembered.” At Tuesday’s sentencing hearing, Trevon’s younger sister and parents provided the court with powerful impact statements expressing their heartbreak at the terrible loss of Trevon and their frustration with the court process. They also credited the hard work of investigators in bringing the case to prosecution. The case was investigated by the Paso Robles Police Department with the assistance of the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation, District Attorney’s Central Coast Cyber Forensic Lab, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office, Riverside Police Depart-

NICHOLAS CHRISTOPHER RON JR. ment, Riverside County Sheriff ’s Department, San Bernardino County Sheriff ’s Department and California Department of Justice. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorneys Mike Frye and Delaney Henretty.

Just the Facts: Part One

JOHN SALISBURY COMMENTARY

T

here is an old saying, “Don’t put your cart before the horse”. That is pretty much what is going on with this big push for electric vehicles and replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy. Our governor, part of “Going Green,” has mandated a plan that only new passenger cars and light trucks (pickups) with zero emissions can be sold within 13 years (2035). In just four years, 35 percent of all new sales to be ZEVs (zero-emission vehicles). From what I can dig up, and much of all the following in this article is picked from many reputable sources and too many to list, right now, there are around a million ZEVs on the road in California out of around a total of 15 million all types of cars, SUVs, pickups in 2021. Doing the math, that is less than 7 percent of the total cars on our highways are ZEVs. That is a long way to go meet the goal of eliminating gas-powered vehicles in the immediate future.

Eventually, heavy-duty trucks, airplanes, military vehicles, farm equipment, and others are next — hate to be looking for an electric plug in the middle of a field miles from the shop for my tractor or harvester! A hearing will be held in June, and the California Resources Board is expected to vote in August. Note – bypassing the State Legislature and decided by a handpick state board. There is a cost of “Going Green.” Batteries do not produce electricity. They are a storage mechanism. Electricity is made in California mostly by natural gas plants (37 percent), uranium (9.3 percent) – Diablo Canyon and we are going to lose this baby soon, hydroelectric (14 percent) – dams where power generation has plummeted by 60 percent because of recent droughts, dirty backup diesel generators, wind turbines (11 percent), and solar (12 percent). Two-thirds of the power is generated by non-renewable and unspecified energy, and the other third in all types of renewables. In the United States, 40 percent of all the electricity is from coal-fired plants, so it stands to reason that 30 to 40 percent of the ZEVs in the nation are coal-powered. California imports a quarter to a third of its power annually from other states, generated mostly from coal, natural gas, diesel, and

some wind and solar. During the summer black and brownouts, this power does not come cheap; gouging would be a better word, and not much of it is from renewables. The wet battery in your electric car weighs around a thousand pounds (one-half ton) versus an average of 40 pounds for a fossil fuel car battery. It has 25 pounds of lithium, sixty pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds of cobalt, 200 pounds of copper, and 400 pounds of aluminum, steel, and plastic to wrap it all up. All these materials come from mining – lots of big holes in the earth and more coming. For that one battery of stored electricity in your ZEV, you must process 25,000 pounds — 12.5 tons, larger legally to fill a dump truck of brine for the lithium, 30,000 pounds or 15 tons for a set of truck double trailers for the ore for the cobalt, 5,000 pounds, a large SUV, for the ore for the nickel, and another 25,000 pounds of the ore for the copper. These batteries are considered hazardous waste and can only partially be recycled and, if stored or put in the dump, will probably eventually leak like all batteries. ZEVs batteries generally have a life span of 10 to 20+ years and cost $7,000 to $14,000 to replace, depending on the manufacturer. So, a question, how many

years and driven miles would a single ZEV have to go to offset all the non-renewable electrical energy to build the battery and drive the car, fossil fuels for the mining, associated equipment, and processing, transportation between the mines, processors, and to the car manufacturers, plus all the many other embedded costs on top of the air pollution and environmental damage to the earth’s crust for that one car to be truly zero-emission? The cobalt, 68 percent, comes from the Congo with no pollution controls and a lot of child labor where too many die from this toxic material. It is fair to say that this tragedy must be added to the cost of the battery? Lithium is currently the main used energy source storage for electric cars, phones, tablets, and laptops. There is a bunch of it, 43 million tons on earth, but only a third of it is in a form that can be mined, and 87 percent of that is in brine waters, mostly in South America, referred to as the “Lithium Triangle” along the coasts of Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile. The process for lithium carbonate takes drilling holes in salt flats and pumping the salty, mineral-rich brine to the surface and left to evaporate; then, the leftover salt is filtered for the lithium carbonate. Simple, but uses large amounts of water and

takes time — one and a half to two years for the final product. One of the largest deposits of lithium in the U.S. is in an isolated part of northwest Nevada called Thacker Pass. Mining companies have been trying to get permits for the last fifteen years but are tied up by a bunch of environmentalists and tribal activists. Same problem for drilling permits for possible sites in Death Valley and near other national and state parks. A large deposit of lithium is in the Salton Sea, and companies are starting test drilling. In the past two years, lithium prices have gone up 1000 percent, copper up 200 percent, nickel up 300 percent, and aluminum, the second most used metal on earth after iron ore, is up 300 percent. Doubling the aluminum price would wipe out most of the manufacturer’s profit margin for cars, SUVs, and pickups, so those vehicles will inevitably see higher prices. Tesla and China’s largest ZEV manufacturer, BYD, have just raised prices on their electric vehicles. So, how can California and the federal governments who are touting that lower prices of electric vehicles will happen, and many will be able to afford one soon, explain the fact that the opposite thing is happening? There aren’t enough precious metals available now to meet the demand and mandates to make prices come

down. Plus, the fact that most of these minerals are mined and/or processed by countries that are not our friends. Just in, warning in the WSJ that there is under 10 percent of the world’s combined cell production for ZEVs of what is needed in 10 years. Meaning that 90 percent of the supply chain does not exist and will be a problem for the next 20 years. Be sure China and others will cover their “you know what’s” for what they need first. Doesn’t look good for mandates. For the time being, we need to get our ducks in a row and come up with a sensible Federal Energy Transitional Plan, so energy suppliers can make long-term decisions instead of trying to guess the changeable whims of government policies, back off on the mandates, especially those done by single man federal and state executive orders (what happened to representative government?), allow much more fossil fuel drilling, make it possible and easier to develop our own mineral resources and make peace with some of the problem supply/processing countries where possible. To be continued – wind, solar, nuclear, and emerging technologies. “Just the facts, ma’am” ­— Detective Joe Friday in Dragnet John Salisbury is an independent columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press.

Newsom Budget Recognizes One Housing Reality

TOM ELIAS

COMMENTARY

I

t’s anyone’s guess whether the developer campaign donors who greatly influence California’s huge Democratic legislative majorities will follow suit, but Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed budget at long last recognizes one reality that has been plain since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. With hundreds of thousands of white-collar office workers switching permanently to home offices where they are often more productive than before, billions of square feet in

Response to Al Fonzi’s June 9 opinion “Gas and Guns” Dear Editor, I realize that I am at the opposite end of the political spectrum from Mr. Fonzi’s Opinion piece on June 9th called “Gas and Guns.” Gas prices are rising because the American fossil fuel industries can demand whatever they want, and therefore as a capitalist society there is little elected officials can do. Under former President Trump and the two years of Republican control in both houses, corporate America was gifted a 12-18 percent tax cut. Corporate America thanked Americans by using a crisis as

office towers and other buildings now sit vacant, earning their owners nothing. Meanwhile, despite a state audit showing its figures are unreliable, the demand of the state Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for more than 1.8 million new housing units by 2030 remains the mantra for so-called “progressive” politicians. And state Attorney General Rob Bonta persists in threatening lawsuits against local governments which don’t knuckle under and approve thousands of new units right away. The trouble is that at the current pace of construction (less than 100,000 new units per year since Newsom took office in late 2018), there is no chance for creating anywhere near that many newly constructed apartments, condominiums and individual houses.

an excuse to significantly raise prices. In 2021 Exxon made 285.6 billion in profits. In 2022 according to Americanprogress. org, the top five fossil fuel industries have made a 300 percent profit in just the first quarter. This is just plain greed. When President Biden emphasizes our nation’s need to diversify our energy resources, he is correct. The war in Ukraine is a reminder that no nation, including ours, should be totally dependent on one energy source. There’s much talk and unfounded fear that the Democratic Party wants to take away Second Amendment rights. Personally, I have no objection

Not even the 2021 passage of densifying measures like SB 9 and SB 10, which all but eliminate single-family zoning, could change that. So Newsom has had to recognize the reality of office vacancies and their inevitable conversion to housing. It’s already happening in some places, with more than 5,000 converted units either created or approved so far in all parts of California. This trend would be accelerated considerably by the proposed Newsom budget, which is better known for its effort to place billions of dollars in the pockets of car owners to help them cope with inflationary gasoline prices created by oil company price gouging. But squirreled away in the more than $300 billion spending plan—which must be approved by June 15 in either its submitted form or a revised version,

on pain of financial penalties for legislators – is $600 million to help convert office space to housing, particularly in dense urban areas. The need for these conversions has been obvious since March 2020, when Newsom ordered lockouts to help slow the spread of COVID. That edict suddenly emptied not only freeways, but also office towers. There has been only a partial return to offices since anti-pandemic measures were largely relaxed. Without conversions, local governments stand to lose many millions of tax dollars annually, as property values and assessments drop in amounts parallel to lost rental revenues. So the real estate investment trusts that own many of those buildings will feel ever more pressure from shareholders as many dividends remain well below pre-pandemic levels.

Letters to the Editor with responsible adults owning a gun for protection or for hunting. However, weapons of mass destruction are used to hunt people, including defenseless children. To get a driver’s license, one must meet the age requirement, pass a written test, and pass the behind-the-wheel test. In addition, there’s a renewal process. Why not a similar process in owning a weapon? Lastly, please let’s honor the separation of church and state in our secular democracy. Forcing a religious point of view has not and will not solve our nation’s problems. Respectfully, Linda Campeggi

SLO League of Women Voters Celebrates 60th Anniversary Dear Editor, The League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County celebrates its 60th anniversary this month. Marking this landmark, we both celebrate our history and reaffirm our mission to educate voters, protect voting rights, and defend our democratic institutions. Since 1962 we have provided voter services and educational programs to enable voters to make informed decisions at election time and educated the public on issues important to the well-being of our communities.

But will legislators respond? They say they’re committed to creating new housing for the benefit of would-be homeowners now priced out of the market, where median single-family home prices statewide top $810,000. But the lawmakers are tied closely to developers, who stand to make far less from conversions than from new construction. They are also beholden to building trade unions, which would get plenty of work from conversions, but still much less than from new developments. Because those interests are among the top financiers of Democratic legislative campaigns, the Democrats who rule in Sacramento have resisted office conversions. They allowed a 2021 measure that would have made local approval of such conversions automatic die without floor votes. The questions now is whether

they will try to knock the $600 million one-time enabling contribution out of Newsom’s budget proposal. If they do, it will prove they are committed far more to their campaign donors than to the prospective homeowners they nominally support. Right now, the fate of this boost to housing supplies remains uncertain regardless of all the evidence that it would help property owners, new buyers and local governments, each an interest to which the Democrats pay lip service. Now is the time for anyone who wants to see housing at all price levels created quickly to speak up and pressure legislators to leave that appropriation alone. But it’s unclear what will happen. Thomas Elias is an independent opinion columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email him at tdelias@aol.com.

Every election year we conduct forums for candidates seeking a variety of positions and provide information on the ballot propositions to our community. We work with county officials on voter registration, staffing the polls for elections, and election procedures to test the accuracy of the voting system and audit the election results. Over the years, we have advocated for school bonds, a new juvenile hall, the development of Mission Plaza, open space and coastal preservation, a moratorium on offshore oil drilling, funding for public libraries, campaign finance

reform, and a fair redistricting process. Today, our local League is stronger than ever, with 300 members. A nonpartisan political organization, we do not support or oppose candidates or political parties. Our job is to encourage informed and active participation by the people in their government. Our goal is to empower citizens. Expect more voter service, educational programs, and advocacy from us in the future as we look forward to our next 60 years. Cindy Marie Absey President League of Women Voters San Luis Obispo,

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

t’s true, summer has officially begun, according to my calendar. So I guess those hot days we endured were just “teasers” to get us ready for another seasonal change. Looking back on the history of our Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival, I remember that the hours were 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., during the very hottest part of the day. Finally, after a few years, we got smart and changed the hours to 4 to 8 p.m., perfect for tasting wine, strolling through the park to enjoy the fine art on display, and dancing to the music provided by popular bands. This year, after a two-year hiatus due to COVID, the festival is back, even bigger and better. Come join us as we celebrate our 25th year of providing an opportunity to sample some of the best wines, ciders, brews, and distilled

I

’m hearing more and more talk about food shortages due to the war, broken supply lines, and the fact that inflation is running so hot even wealthy people will soon be living on beans and wieners. Or they won’t be able to afford to eat at all. My father was one of those Okies John Steinbeck wrote about in “The Grapes of Wrath”, and he lectured us constantly that we were lucky because once his family of eight made it to California during the depression, there was a big sign at the border that said, “Okies go home.” Needless to say, this wasn’t the “Land of Opportunity” they were expecting, and there were countless times his family didn’t know where their next meal was coming from. That kind of emotion scars you for life. That’s why growing up, we always had a huge garden, a washhouse with Mason® jars

covering every inch of available wall space filled with green beans with chunks of ham, pickled peaches, all sorts of jellies and jams, salsa, and countless other fruits and vegetables that my mom canned every year in her pressure cooker that always sounded like it could blast off at any minute. In our pumphouse, we also had a huge freezer filled with meat from animals we raised. We also had 30 laying hens that gave us about two dozen eggs every day that I wouldn’t eat even if I was starving because I knew where those eggs came from. So I was lucky, I grew up never wondering where my next meal was coming from. When I hear pundits talk about upcoming food shortages, the words of my father haunt me because my wife and I currently not only don’t have a garden, we also don’t have a pumphouse filled with food and our only freezer is a small one that can hardly hold four quarts of ice cream, some 10-year-old colostrum, ice packs for our arthritic joints, some ancient plastic containers full of mystery meat, and three ice cubes. Food wise, we mostly live week to week

and I know this is not smart and it does give me a sense of food insecurity, especially when we go grocery shopping and see that all the Spam® and Velveeta® have already been gobbled up. I can easily envision a circumstance down the road where consumers get real spooked like they did with toilet paper. Only when people start to hoard food it will become an even more horrendous pain in the patoot than when they were stockpiling Charmin®. I used to have two fall-back positions. For the first 30 years of our marriage, I never worried where my next meal was coming from because my wife worked as a checker in a grocery store owned by her uncle. I felt pretty confident that for a high enough price he’d let us shop after hours. But now that she’s retired and her uncle is dead, I have no inside connections. My other fallback position was my neighbor who, 30 years ago, bought a year’s worth of food and put it in his bomb shelter left over from the 1960s Cold War. I often have visions of my neighbor resting comfortably in his Lazy Boy, 40 feet underground, eating dehydrated peas, piñon nuts and

However, you will find that we have added to the activities. We have more bands, wine glass painting, a larger variety of food to purchase, a photo gallery, and an enlarged tasting area spread throughout the Charles Paddock Zoo. Several commercial vendors will also be there with wine-related goods. We have had a great committee this year, headed up by Gail Kudlac and supported by Dawn Smith, Julie Mathews, Josh Cross, Carol Porter, Rosy Parks, Gina Lutz, Terrie Banish, Mark Dariz, Kim Kroft, and Fintan.

e experienced the longest day of the year this past Tuesday, the first day of summer. It’s a time of warmth and celebration of the return of light. The summer solstice reminds us to turn inward and find the nourishment needed within us to grow and evolve. It’s an invitation to embrace the electrifying power of the sun and the light within. It marks the midpoint of the year and a time of new beginnings. Perhaps it’s time to make some new agreements with ourselves to propel us into the experience of a beautiful

summer season. With so much going on in the world, it’s easy to get pulled into darkness and despair. Yet, in the midst of it all, there is something within you longing to express itself more than ever — your soul. You are ready to become more you than you ever have been. The great 13th-century Persian poet and Sufi mystic Rumi wrote, “What you’re seeking is seeking you.” When you read or hear those words, they resonate deeply without needing an explanation. He is stating on multiple levels that there is an impulse within you seeking to awaken, which is the awakened part of yourself seeking to come forward and express itself. St. Francis of Assisi said, “What we are looking for is what is looking.” So that tells me that we have already arrived, so now what? We are called to remem-

ber that we were made in the image and likeness of the Divine, and since we can think, we must participate in our own unfolding and the evolution of humanity. Therefore, by releasing habits such as complaining, drama, and gossip, we create a suitable condition to manifest our deepest desires and what we are seeking. When you plant a seed in the soil, and the condition is suitable, the seed will unfold. Similarly, the caterpillar has an instinct, an inner prompting to become a butterfly. Likewise, a chick inside of its egg has an instinctual desire to leave the confines of the shell, so it begins to peck away at it to come into a new world. You have an instinct to live the life of your dreams. Summertime is here, and it’s an excellent time to shed the old ways of thinking and behaving that no longer serve

plastic cups Pop sticks Directions: Combine blueberries, pomegranate juice, sherbet, milk, and honey in blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Pour mixture into molds and cover tops with small piece of foil. Freeze 2 hours. Insert sticks through center of foil and Freeze 6 hours or until firm. To remove pops from molds, remove foil and place bottoms of pops under warm running water until loosened. Press firmly on bottoms to release. (Don’t twist or pull on sticks.) Note: For Citrus Mango Pops use 11⁄2 cups mango nectar, 3⁄4 cup frozen chopped mango, 1⁄2 cup lemon sorbet, 3 tablespoons lime juice, 1 tablespoon honey, 1⁄4 teaspoon grated lime peel, and follow the same directions in one of the other recipes.

M & M’s, while I’m hiding under my desk as we were instructed to do by our teachers counting on it to protect me from the nukes launched by crazy Khrushchev, who was even nuttier than Putin, believe it or not. My neighbor calls his secret stash “Mormon MREs” (meals ready to eat) because the Mormons believe in having at least one year’s worth of food on hand, and also because he was in the military and on occasion ate MREs. I’ve always made fun of him and his pessimistic outlook on life, and I may have overdone it because now my friend tells me he’s not going to be neighborly and share ANY of his already expired fake food with me. So even if I get down on my knees and beg, there will be no weevils with rice casserole, post-apocalyptic macaroni paste, dehydrated ramen noodles with chickpeas, desiccated Brussel sprouts, or cardboard cookies for dessert. Umm, yummy. I think I’d rather just go hide under my desk instead.

I celebrate the light of consciousness within me, you, and all. As I reflect upon the celestial potential for consciousness to awaken for everyone, I’m filled with giddy bliss, for I know and believe it is possible and happening now. I’m deeply grateful on this day as I harvest my good and appreciate Mother Earth for the abundant bounty and harvest always provided. What a gift.

Why Pickleball is the Perfect Sport, Especially for Seniors CONTRIBUTED ARTICLE

P

ickleball began on a summer afternoon as “something to do” for a family in 1965. Its creators grabbed some old sports gear sitting around that included ping-pong paddles and a Wiffle ball; then, they headed to the badminton court in their neighborhood. Several weeks later, they developed some rules, lowered the net, and invited others to the asphalt to play. The sport of pickleball had begun. But, little did the original players know its impact on so many lives almost 60 years later. Pickleball grew in 2021 to 4.8 million players in the US, an incredible two-year growth rate of 39.3

percent. It’s currently considered the fastest-growing sport in America, and many parks and facilities are converting their tennis courts into pickleball courts. It’s even in such demand for senior living facilities that having one is considered a competitive advantage. But why is this sport growing in popularity? And why is it the perfect sport, especially for seniors? Let’s dive in. Why Pickleball is the Perfect Sport For most, playing sports ends after high school and college. Sure, you may play kickball or softball in your 20s or 30s or give golf a shot later in life. Maybe, if you’re careful with your body, you can even play around some in your 40s and 50s. But, neither of those

really get your body moving or your competitive juices flowing like sports in your younger days did. With less and less activity over time, your body starts to get used to a more sedentary lifestyle, and finding that joy of sport no longer becomes a priority. That is until pickleball entered the scene. Over the last five or six years, more and more people have discovered the fun and benefits that pickleball brings. In a recent study, playing pickleball has been shown to reduce blood pressure, improve cardiovascular health, and even help people battle depression. And the benefits don’t stop there. Pickleball is Easily Accessible One of the significant factors contributing to the

Pickleball’s high-intensity, low-impact style of play is a main reason it’s so popular with seniors.

popularity of pickleball is how easily accessible it is to all ages. This is not by accident. The creators of pickleball wanted something for the entire family to do together. So, it’s very common to see all ages out there on the courts. Some are former athletes who can no longer participate in their sports, but others are people who just want something fun and active to do with others. To show how accessible it is, the fastest-growing population of pickleballers is seniors. Another factor to consider is the low cost of entry. Because of demand, many public parks and tennis courts have converted their grounds to cater to pickleball players, who can show up and play for free. Balls and rackets can be purchased from many big-box retailers for just a $30 to $40 investment. And really, that’s all you need! It’s a Social Activity As we age, no matter how lively and friendly you are, making new friends can be very difficult. Especially friends that we can sweat and be active with. For those who grew up playing sports, it’s challenging to replace that camaraderie you get from having teammates. Pickleball, especially if you play doubles, can provide those opportunities. About 13.8 million older adults live alone. So for some, that social interaction on the pickleball court might be the only time they spend talking with other people throughout the week. And meeting new people and developing friendships has been shown to enrich our lives and improve our health. Pickleball Is Low Impact, High Activity Pickleball courts are 44 feet long and 20 feet wide. This is almost half the size of a tennis court. A smaller court means less running and more minor wear and tear on your body and joints. Yet, you still get the cardiovascular benefits of quick bursts of action and an aerobic workout. High intensity, low impact is one of the

best ways to work out your body long-term and improve your health, whether you are young or trying to stay young at heart. Even the equipment has less of an impact on your body than tennis and other sports:

fair play and equal opportunities for all players. If you’re nervous about giving it a try because you don’t know the rules, many programs are available that teach you the game, and even more, information can be

Pickleball is considered the fastest growing sport in America, increasing 39 percents in 2021 to 4.8 million players. Contributed Photos.

The paddle is light and without strings, which reduces the exertion on your arms, wrists, and shoulders. • The ball is hollow and very light, which again limits its impact when hitting it. • Since serving and most of your hits will come from an underhand motion, pickleball also removes overhead shots that could cause strain on your shoulders. Pickleball is Easy to Learn Instead of reinventing the wheel and coming up with a list of new rules for everyone to learn, the pickleball creators adapted rules from badminton, tennis, and pingpong. While those rules have evolved over the years, and new rules are introduced annually, it’s still an easy game to learn with just a few rules. As the game changes and new rules are introduced, many are created to promote •

Also, if you’re not sure where to play, you can visit the USA Pickleball Association website at places2play. org to find a place near you. Pickleball is the perfect sport. It’s accessible to all people and offers countless health and social benefits. Whether you’re a young or older adult, give pickleball a shot, we think you’ll be glad you did.

made a donation that allowed the club to purchase the new property. “He absolutely knew it would happen,” Kathleen Maas said. “It is so rewarding to be here now and to know this will make a difference in the community that we all believe in.” “Thanks to everyone, friends, family who all along the way and the community and remember

that we have to stay there,” she continued. “Because now that it is here, we have to keep it healthy, happy, striving forward, always growing and fulfilling its purpose in this community.” A portion of the funds to build the new clubhouse was raised by Must! Charities. In August 2021, Must! Charities raised funds to complete the build with its first Purpose fundraiser. Philanthropists and wineries raised $1.3 million at the event. Of that total,

In response, the City of Paso Robles formed a GSA within its jurisdiction along with three other local agencies within the Salinas Valley, including the Paso Robles Area Groundwater Basin (Paso Basin), the County of San Luis Obispo, the Shandon-San Juan Water District, and the San Miguel Community Services District. The agencies are collectively known as the Paso Basin GSAs. In June 2021, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) completed

injustice that we are going through in Paso, the people of color, them coming and showing me, ‘Netta we got your back, we’re here,’ so that was comforting,” Perkins said. Perkins, now 50, was a star athlete at Paso Robles High School but says she was not educated on her culture when she was younger, adding that she wasn’t “woke” yet. “Woke” according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, means to be aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice). The Paso Robles Press asked Perkins the difference between the Paso Robles she knew growing up and the Paso Robles she knows today. “I’m not going to say that it was better back then,” said Perkins, “I just think that a platform of hate was put out there, and a lot of my fellow citizens of Paso Robles jumped on that platform, and it shocked me.” She added, “Nothing has changed. There is no diversity as

The DWR stated the basin’s GSP lacks justification for the sustainable management criteria for groundwater levels, particularly the minimum thresholds and undesirable results, and the effects of those criteria on the interests of beneficial uses and users of groundwater. Additionally, DWR said the Paso Basin GSP did not demonstrate interconnected surface water or undesirable results related to depletions of interconnected surface water are not present and are not likely to occur in the sub-basin.

We also want to kind of trick them into learning,” said Boyer. “We want to make sure we have fun activities but also always come around and make sure they the learning voids in those activities.” The new facility is home to an outdoor basketball court,

Todd Groundwater was hired for its technical expertise, and adjustments were made to the GSP plan. Council unanimously approved the new plan. Council also approved ballot measures to be voted on by Paso Robles residents in the November 2022 election. On Nov. 8, residents will vote for two council members and a new mayor. Terms for councilmembers John Hamon (District 1), Maria Garcia (District 2), and Mayor Steve Martin will expire in December 2022. Martin, Hamon, and Garcia have not announced whether they will run for re-election, and no additional candidate announcements have been made. Some measures will also be on the

multipurpose room, commercial kitchen, STEM lab, and computer lab. The club offers homework tutoring and other programs that will pique youth’s interest. Boyer hopes the public will remain supportive of the BGCMCC now that the new clubhouse is open. “This isn’t it. We want to ensure that people realize we are here to serve kids who need to be served.

ballot for residents this fall. City residents will vote to decide if the city treasurer position should be appointed. Paso Robles and Atascadero are the only cities in San Luis Obispo County to have elected their treasurer. The only qualifications to serve as an elected city treasurer is that a candidate is of age and a registered voter; there is no guarantee that an elected city treasurer will possess the necessary skills and expertise required — which made the council question if they should make the position an appointed one, similar to what they have done for the city clerk position. Another measure on the ballot will be to decide if the transient occupancy tax (TOT) should be increased from 10 percent to 11 percent. The tax is paid by hotel, motel, and short-

term rental guests. During the April 19 and May 17 City Council meetings, the City Council agreed to move forward with the necessary items to place a TOT increase on the next statewide general election. The current TOT rate in the city is 10 percent (there is also a 1.5 percent San Luis Obispo Tourism Marketing District assessment [TMD], and 2 percent Paso Robles Tourism Improvement District assessment [TID] for a total lodging assessment of 13 percent). The increase of 1 percent would anticipate revenue to generate $700,000 and $800,000 annually, dependent on the price of the lodging, occupancy rates, and length of stay. The next city council meeting is scheduled for July 19 at 6:30 p.m.

Updates were also made to the work calendar for the THS secretary and attendance clerk position. Trustees approved to reduce the work schedule from 232 work days to 227 work days for the 2022-23 school year. The change was requested by California School Employees Association (CSEA) members.

The reduction of days falls in July. This adjustment to the work calendar will result in a savings of $1,680 for the district. Trustees approved an increase in their transportation fees. The transportation department operates a shuttle service from Vineyard Elementary School to Templeton Elementary

School each afternoon. This service is funded through the sale of bus passes. The proposed increase is to offset the rising fuel and labor costs. The transportation fee shall be waived for students with demonstrated financial need in accordance with Education Code 39807.5 or

students with disabilities. The increased price schedule is as follows: First semester pass purchased: • Aug. 1 to Sep. 30 — $110.00 • Oct. 1 to Oct. 31 — $77.00 • Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 — $44.00

• Feb. 1 to March 30 — $77.00 • April 1 to June 9 — $44.00

far as... we’re not seeing people of power that look like us, but we’re here in the City.” To create more diversity, Perkins explains that she would like to see people of color represented in City events like the Pioneer Day Parade, California Mid-State Fair, and even local wineries by adding entertainment directed toward people of color. “Make an effort to put all cultures walking down that parade that live in Paso Robles because we’re not just rodeo country folks here,” Perkins said. The Paso Robles Press reached out to Mayor Martin for a response to Perkins concerns. Martin responded by explaining that the City of Paso Robles has no authority over the Mid-State Fair’s policies; however, he knows that both the fair and the Pioneer Day Committee are always looking for volunteers to stage and grow their events; everyone is welcome. Pe r k i n s a d d i t i o n a l l y expressed concerns that the City did not support the Jubilee enough.

The first Juneteenth Jubilee Perkins hosted was in 2021 as a gathering in the park, which ended up being more successful than Perkins anticipated. The City of Paso Robles notified Perkins that the event would need to be permitted for the following year. So in 2022, Perkins followed through with the permitting process, and the City offered not to charge Perkins the fee to host the event at the City Park. “I honestly didn’t think that was enough. There was no offer of monetary [contribution],” said Perkins. A street banner for the Jubilee hung across Spring Street cost Perkins and her committee $1,000, which she says she felt the City should have paid for. Leading up to the event, Perkins said she was concerned that the same banner would be a target of vandalism which led her to speak to the Chief of Police, Damian Nord, making him aware of her concerns. Perkins told The Paso Robles Press that her concerns of vandalism and protests did not stop at the sign. “Sadly, going in, I was wait-

ing for those big trucks with their flags and ‘Lets Go Brandon’,” said Perkins, “I honestly thought they were going to show up [at the Jubiliee], but I didn’t see it. I did not see that they were trying to distract from what we were trying to do.” According to Mayor Martin, the City does not generally fund events in the park unless they are city-sponsored, adding, “The City maintains the park, liaisons with committees to ascertain their needs and assists with permitting as appropriate.” In order for a group or an event to receive grants or funding from the City the Mayor explained that “The committee would have to submit proposals to staff, including dates, activities, appropriate insurances, etc. If the event does not conflict with other city-sponsored events or park reservations, the City Council would consider whether the proposed event would provide sufficient public benefit to warrant sponsoring it and supporting it with taxpayer dollars or commitment of staff time.” Perkins says she last spoke with Mayor Martin at the

Unity Forum held at the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District in November 2021. According to Perkins, the two discussed diversity in Paso Robles. “Sadly, he is our mayor, and he couldn’t give me answers, so that didn’t make me feel too comfortable,” said Perkins, “But you got to reach out to the people of color in your community and ask what can I do, and that’s not happening.” Perkins adds, “They should be chasing us down. They represent us, right? So sit down at the table and ask what do we want.” When asked what change Perkins wants the City to do, she explained, “More town hall meetings where we are sitting and listening to each other instead of yelling and protesting...instead of rolling around with our flags that mean something but not the right meaning.” In response to Paso’s lack of diversity, Mayor Martin gave The Paso Robles Press the following statement: “I assisted with the formation of a Diversity Panel. I assisted with the writing of the forma-

tive documents and developed a website, pasodiversity.com, for the panel’s use. I have since turned all authority over to them to bring diversity projects forward. I support their efforts and am eager to see what they have in store in the next year. I have participated in local events such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration and the Juneteenth celebrations last year and this year. I have participated in events held by the panel, including two community diversity discussion nights. I have also made it a point to forward opportunities to serve on city commissions and advisory bodies to the Diversity Panel to encourage people to become involved. Furthermore, the City is now entering its second election cycle with multiple districts formed expressly to increase diversity on the City Council. There is always more work to be done, but we are making progress. However, Perkins says, “I don’t see change, but I see the effort and it’s going to take baby steps.” Perkins has plans to make the event a new city tradition but hopes to see the City take the event over and appoint a committee for the planning.

Revenue generated from the sale of bus passes are anticipated to equal shuttle service operating costs. The next Templeton Unified Second semester pass purchased: School District meeting is • Dec. 1 to Jan. 31 — $110.00 scheduled for June 30.
