County supervisors argue over resolution condemning racism
County to observe Native American Day in place of Columbus
By CAMILLE DEVAUL email@example.com
SAN LUIS OBISPO
COUNTY — During the Tuesday, June 6, San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors meeting, a decision was made changing the observation of an over-50-year-old federally recognized holiday. County staff will now be observing Native American Day rather than Columbus Day in October as a paid holiday. Until 2022, Columbus Day was observed as one of the county’s paid holidays recognized on the second Monday in October.
However, in 2022 the California Superior Courts remained open on Columbus Day, requiring the District Attorney’s Office and other county staff to remain open and working as well. The county met with all represented employee associations and reached an agree-

The local brewery brought in 67 breweries from all over the world
By CHRISTIANNA MARKS email@example.com
PASO ROBLES — Over 4,000 people from all over the country showed up at the Paso
Robles Event Center for the 10th Annual Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival (FWIBF) on Saturday, June 3.
Like years prior, the event sold out almost as soon as the tickets went on sale.
“We had about 4,000 some people from all over the country come in to drink the beers from 67 breweries. It was just an
amazing turnout, great energy, and we had some really cool bands there,” said Firestone Walker’s COO, Nick Firestone.
This year, the bands featured at the FWIBF were The Brothers Comatose, a five-piece bluegrass band from San Francisco, and the local Mark Adams Band.
Like in years past, the
FWIBF also boasted a large amount of local restaurants to pick from while attendees tasted the array of international and American beers offered.
“The international piece of it [the beer fest] is really cool, I think. For me personally, you know, there’s a lot of California breweries that I can visit

SafetyFest promotes community preparedness and safety awareness
education, and pet safety tips. To add some excitement and fun, there were entertaining activities, including a taco-eating contest, sack races, and tug-of-war.

PASO ROBLES — SafetyFest, an annual event organized by PASOSafe, in partnership with the City of Paso Robles, took place on Saturday, June 3, with the aim of promoting safety and preparedness within the community. This event, for the second year, featured various activities, presentations, and exhibits by first responders, law enforcement agencies, and safety experts.
Throughout the day, attendees had the opportunity to engage in presentations, demonstrations, and exhibits by various organizations, including Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services, Paso Robles Police Department, North San Luis Obispo (SLO) County Community Emergency Response (CERT), and
the SLO County Office of Emergency Services. Additionally, sponsors set up safety exhibits covering a wide range of topics, such as drivers’ safety innovations, cybersecurity, financial safety, bicycle safety, and eco-friendly practices.
Proceeds from SafetyFest supported the CERT, which plays a crucial role in educating volunteers about disaster preparedness and training them in basic disaster response skills.
Mark Elterman, a volunteer creator and co-producer of PASOSafe, emphasized the importance of SafetyFest as a platform for promoting all aspects of safety.
“We recognize that holding an event like Safety Fest is a great platform for all aspects of safety,” he said.
Entirely run by volunteers, PasoSafe relies on its sponsors to finance the SafetyFest. But, Elterman says that starting
later this year, they are looking to add fundraisers and additional training exercises for the community.
“All the volunteers, all the exhibitors, all the first responders really came together,” said Elterman.
The event also catered to families and children, offering activities such as home evacuation and go-bag demonstrations, water safety awareness, vehicle and pedestrian safety
One of the highlights of SafetyFest was the display of playhouse-sized homes called Disasterville. Each home represented the devastation caused by local disasters such as wildfires, earthquakes, and floods. The objective of this display was to educate visitors about the destructive power of disasters and encourage them to be prepared for such events.
He expressed the need for the community to focus on training, resources, philanthropy, and outreach to overcome significant disasters. The event brought together multiple entities and showcased the dedication of volunteers, exhibitors, and first responders.
Elterman says it was important to the organization to also reach out to the Spanish-speaking community in the county, who may not have received

PASO ROBLES — To quote Paso Robles City Manager Ty Lewis, there was some robust conversation at the City Council meeting Tuesday night surrounding the downtown parking program. Downtown business owners and community members came out to express their position on the controversial program at the meeting held on Tuesday, June 6.
In February, the City Council voted to make changes to the program, which launched as a 90-day pilot program in March. Concerns regarding revenue, consumer confusion, and parking availability were addressed. During that meeting, the council decided to keep two free hours of initial parking, increase the hourly parking rate to $2, and implement the Flowbird parking management solution. Flowbird allows users to pay for parking through kiosks, text messages, or a mobile app.
Launched in 2019, the parking program was initiated to address the lack of parking downtown, which was specifically said to be caused by business employees taking up parking in front of the downtown businesses. However, the program has not yet achieved cost neutrality, with expenses exceeding revenue. According to staff, revenue has relied on citation fines which amount to a starting $50 — which staff notes as an unfavorable reliance.
During the 90-day pilot program, there was a total expense of over $103,000 with a net loss of approximately $46,000. Within those 90 days, over $34,000 of the revenue came from paid cita-

Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on nine homes in Paso
Over 70 people attend Golden Shovel Ceremony
PASO ROBLES — Habitat for Humanity
SLO County proudly held a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of nine homes in Paso Robles on Thursday, June 1. Over 70 people attended, including SLO County officials, Paso Robles city officials, Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce board members and staff, Habitat for Humanity board members and staff, and USDA Program Director for California Stephen Nnodin.
Nicholas Rasmussen, Habitat for Humanity SLO County CEO, opened the ceremony.
“I am extremely grateful for the continued support to address affordable housing needs for families in our community,” Rasmussen said. “This project is only possible because of continued collaboration at the city, county, state, and federal levels.”
Emily Baranek, the Vine Street Build project manager, has been a part of this project for over a decade, first as a volunteer.
“We are so proud and thankful to be breaking ground on this project,” Baranek said. “Many
people, businesses and organizations have been working for years to make this a reality. Together with our nine partner families, Habitat is looking forward to building a strong community around this project and I think today was a great start.” Sponsors and partners include USDA, City
of Paso Robles, County of San Luis Obispo, Precision Construction Services, Pacific Premier Bank, Mechanics Bank, A&T Arborists, Above Grade Engineering, Althouse & Meade, Ashley & Vance Engineering, Earth Systems Pacific, GEO Solutions, Greg Wilhelm Architects,
Jim Burrows Landscape Architect, Will Ruoff Architect & 4 Creeks, Vintage Wine Estates, and Zurn Industries.
Precision Construction Services is managing the nine-home Vine Street build.
“I can’t think of a better way to give back to the community than to support Habitat’s mission of helping hard working families achieve the American dream of homeownership,” said Precision Construction Services CEO Karl Vaillancourt. “We at Precision are humbled and honored to play a part in delivering for the organization, the community, and these deserving families.”
Jim Duffy, president of Ten Over Studio and Habitat SLO County Board president, is honored to be a part of the project.
“Today’s groundbreaking marks a significant milestone for our organization,” Duffy said. “We are so grateful for the countless hours of dedicated volunteers in our community and the financial support we have received from a wide variety of sources to bring this project to life. We’re honored to be serving our community by building housing for our neighbors.”

High court rejects challenge to state farm animal law
U.S. Supreme Court upholds California’s Proposition 12 affecting pork & egg producers
By CHING LEE California Farm Bureau
CALIFORNIA — Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld California’s Proposition 12, out-of-state producers of pork, eggs, and veal have decisions to make: Change their operations to comply with the law’s animal housing requirements or stop selling their products in California.
Many California producers grappled with similar decisions in 2008, when California voters passed Proposition 2, which mandated changes to how certain farm animals were housed. Farms that decided to stay in the business complied.
For this reason, impacts of Proposition 12, which voters approved in 2018, now fall primarily on producers outside California. Commercial hog and veal operations remain scarce in the state, while eggs were already largely regulated, said California Farm Bureau policy advocate Katie Little.
The May 11 Supreme Court decision “definitely puts some finality to” California’s ability to implement Proposition 12, Little said. The 5-to-4 ruling allows the state to ban the sale of pork, eggs, and veal from farm animals housed in spaces that do not meet the law’s minimum requirements: Egg-laying hens must be cage-free. Housing for breeding pigs needs at least 24 square feet of space, and veal calves must receive at least 43 square feet of space.
Out-of-state pork producers argued that complying with the law would require them to make new capital investments estimated at $3,500 per sow if they wish to sell their products in California, which imports almost all the pork it consumes.
The Golden State enjoys a 13-percent share of the U.S. consumer pork market, making it economically infeasible for many pork producers to exit the California market. Because of the interconnected nature of the U.S. pork industry, all or most hog farmers would be forced to comply with the state’s requirements. There’s also no practical way for processors to separate product raised for California.
The National Pork Producers Council and the American Farm Bureau Federation filed suit, saying the California regulations violate the dormant Commerce Clause. They argued that the state unconstitutionally imposes regulations on farms outside its borders.
“At the heart of this argument is whether one state can set the rules for the entire country,” AFBF President Zippy Duvall said in a statement.
The court ruled the complaint failed to show a substantial burden on interstate commerce and “merely allege harm to some producers’ favored ‘methods of operation.’” It also rejected the groups’ argument that the court should strike down state laws with “extraterritorial effects.”
Writing for the majority, Justice Neil Gorsuch said virtually all state laws “create ripple effects beyond their borders.” Environmental laws, for example, influence where companies choose to manufacture their goods, he noted.
The court also ruled that the dormant Commerce Clause does not authorize judges to
vacate duly enacted state laws regulating in-state sale of goods such as pork “based on nothing more than their own assessment of the relevant law’s ‘costs and benefits.’” The competing goods in this case — new costs incurred by out-of-state producers vs. the moral and health interests of California residents — are incommensurable, the court said.
“In a functioning democracy, policy choices like these usually belong to the people and their elected representatives,” Gorsuch wrote.
For California, an immediate concern is whether there will be enough Proposition 12-compliant pork products available to serve its market and what impact a shortage will have on prices, said Jill Damskey, executive director of the California Pork Producers Association.
Most pig farmers here already are Proposition 12-compliant, she said, as many of them raise show pigs and use group housing, not the gestation stalls common in large commercial hog operations and that Proposition 12 seeks to ban.
The court ruling has caused confusion for California processors, grocers and restaurants that source out-of-state pork, Damskey said. Though Proposition 12 took full effect last year, a California court blocked enforcement of part of the law because the California Department of Food and Agriculture did not finalize regulations until last September. A court injunction gives those businesses until July 1 to comply with the new rules.
Damskey said she has fielded calls from processors and grocers needing clarification on what the July 1 end date means: At what stage of the production process can they buy from out of state? Do piglets need to be born by July 1? Can stores sell product they already have on hand after July 1? Impacts of the law have also affected young people who raise project animals. Those who want to sell eggs or pigs into the general food chain must comply with the minimum housing standards. Damskey said CDFA has agreed to allow fairs to collect all Proposition 12-compliant documents on project pigs that will go into the general food chain, simplifying the process.
Christine McCracken, executive director of animal protein for RaboResearch Food and Agribusiness, said many out-of-state producers were reluctant to make investments to comply with the California law because they were waiting on the outcome of the court ruling.
She estimated 6 percent to 7 percent of U.S. pork producers now comply, which would supply about 50 percent of California’s pork needs.
More U.S. farms could be converted, she said, such as those that had already switched to openpen gestation or “loose housing.” But much of the production from those farms is already committed to other markets. With the nation’s $20 billionplus pork industry facing its worst economic period since 2008, she said producers are in no rush to overhaul their facilities.
“Investing right now is a big ask,” she said. “It’s not to say that they aren’t making the changes. Some are.”
Some large vertically integrated processors such as Hormel, Smithfield and Tyson have already begun to change their operations to comply.
McCracken said it remains unclear if those firms will have compliant products available on day one. Imports could fill some of the void. Animal
housing standards in Europe, for example, are tougher than California’s in some cases, she noted. Some Mexican producers are gearing up to comply, and some Canadian companies such as duBreton and Maple Leaf already comply, she said.
“That initial transition is going to be a little messy,” McCracken said, noting a lot of noncompliant products were already on their way to the California market, and they won’t be eligible for
as sausage and hot dogs.
McCracken said she expects “some fallout” from the Supreme Court ruling, as it raises questions about what agricultural practices states can dictate in other states. In his dissenting opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh issued a similar warning.
He wrote that California’s law “may foreshadow a new era where States shutter their markets to goods produced in a way that offends their moral

Fundraiser barbecue to support preservation of Adelaida Schoolhouse
On Saturday, June 10, Adelaida Farm Center and the Adelaida Historical Foundation will hold a fundraiser barbeque from 12 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, and kids under 10 are free. The ticket purchase is also entry into a raffle. RSVP by calling (805) 610-2650. Proceeds go to maintain the schoolhouse.
The Adelaida one-room schoolhouse is the only structure that remains from the once-thriving community of Adelaida, located in the bucolic hills between San Simeon and Paso Robles. Originally a way station where horses and riders rested and watered as they moved cargo from the coast inland, Adelaida was established in 1917 by homesteaders who found the soil to be rich for farming and mining. The community once boasted three schools, three post offices, two general stores, and a dance hall, among other social and civic buildings.

Collision on Highway 58 claims life of motorcyclist
On the afternoon of Saturday, June 3, a fatal collision occurred on Highway 58 in North County, resulting in the death of a motorcyclist. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the incident took place at approximately 1:46 p.m., north of West Pozo Road.
According to CHP officials, 52-year-old Peggy Masuda was riding a Harley Davidson southbound at an unknown speed. Simultaneously, 74-year-old Danny Oster was driving a 2021 Ford Raptor, traveling northbound at around 35 mph. The collision occurred when Masuda drifted across a set of double yellow lines directly into the path of Oster’s vehicle. The sudden maneuver left Oster with little time to react, resulting in a devastating crash.
Following the incident, emergency services transported Masuda to Sierra Vista Regional Hospital, where she was pronounced dead due to the injuries sustained in the collision. Oster suffered minor injuries but did not require hospitalization.
CHP is currently investigating the cause of the collision. Preliminary findings indicate that impairment does not appear to be a contributing factor. The exact circumstances leading to the accident are under examination as authorities work to determine the sequence of events.

Literacy for Life receives donation from Sargen bequest Literacy for Life, which has provided services to empower adults in San Luis Obispo County to learn to read, write, and speak English since 1982, announced it received the single largest donation in the organization’s history. An estate gift of $180,000 was left by longtime community member James “Jim” Sargen, who passed away on Oct. 2, 2021.
“We are so grateful to the Sargen family for their longtime commitment to our community,” said Literacy for Life CEO Bernadette Bernardi. “Jim was always very supportive and an advocate for adult literacy, but we didn’t know he had included us in his estate planning.”
Sargen’s son, Marc Sargen, recently notified the organization of his father’s wishes. A donation of this size can cover the cost of tutor training, books, materials, and administrative oversight for 200 people over the next two years.
This donation coincides with a change in Literacy for Life’s funding. After 41 years, its partnership with the SLO City and County Library will be ending, meaning the organization will lose its state library funding for adult literacy, family literacy, and ESL programs.
“We are going to be more reliant on private donations in addition to federal and local grants,” Bernardi explained. “Jim’s bequest gives us a strong foundation for our programs moving forward.”

There are successes every day at Literacy for Life’s eight learning centers, where people’s lives are changed by their learning to read and write English. From someone being able to text in English for the first time in their digital society or being able to read a book to their child, to someone getting promoted at their workplace because they can better communicate in English. One such story is the recent journey of a woman from Ukraine who worked tirelessly to learn to read and write English, then obtained her real estate license so she can make a living and support her family. Numerous other students have reached their personal goals through perseverance and hard work, resulting in an improved quality of life.

Temporary closure June 8 for Moonstone Beach Drive
Continued State of California improvements to the Moonstone Beach Boardwalk will result in temporary road closures to the southbound lane of Moonstone Beach Drive from 8 to 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 8.
The closure will be for the purpose of staging/craning operations to install a 35-foot bridge. During construction, the northernmost part of the boardwalk is closed to the public but is expected to be reopened by the end of June.
Replacement of the existing bridge is part of the Moonstone Boardwalk Accessibility Improvements project. The boardwalk upgrade will meet accessible trail standards between the north end of the boardwalk at Leffingwell Creek to the Santa Rosa Creek Day-Use area.
The full project is expected to be completed by the end of July.

Prior to becoming a division manager, Graber served as a drug and alcohol services program supervisor overseeing prevention programs within the community and schools. She also spent several years as a drug and alcohol services program coordinator, overseeing what is known today as the department’s Driving Under the Influence program.

Once again, debating over national debt
paper written by Noah Berman for the Council on Foreign Relations the repercussions for failing to adjust the debt ceiling include “a downgrade by credit rating agencies, increased borrowing costs for businesses and homeowners alike, and a drop-off in consumer confidence that could shock the U.S. financial market and tip the economy into recession.
defense and veterans’ health care from cuts, then all other non-defense discretionary programs would have to be cut 33 percent in 2024 and 59 percent in 2025.”
Don’t buy the alarmist rhetoric of the administration.
From the Left From the Right
The current game of chicken that is underway in this hopelessly political partisan wrangling over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling to allow the government to essentially pay its debts reflects the height of absurdity. The 18th-century French philosopher Voltaire once wrote, “Whoever can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities,” and the Congressional Republican leadership has idiotically set out to prove they are willing to sacrifice not only the American but the global economy just to prove the point.
Although I spent six years as senior staff to the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, there is no way I can either appropriately nor accurately lay out even the broadest outlines of the Congressional Budget process in the short space allowed here. However, the reason for the existence of Appropriations Committees, Budget Committees, and Finance and Ways and Means Committees is to thoroughly consider spending and revenue legislation. There are formal processes to discern and vote on spending and revenue levels and programs that do not extort the global economy or hold nations hostage to the whims of childish and inane politicians representing grossly gerrymandered Congressional districts who have little or no regard for democratic governance.
Suffice it to say that risking default by insisting on budgetary cuts is proverbially cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face. It is reckless in the extreme and flirts with economic catastrophe. According to a recent
Paso Robles Joint Unified School District June 13 Meeting
As the father of two students enrolled in the Paso Robles school district, it has been an exasperating few years. It has felt like at every turn the board has chosen politics and personal agendas over the well being of students and teachers. My faith in the leadership of this district has been dramatically eroded and I don’t think I am alone in that feeling. The mismanagement of the Measure M funding alone led to a grand jury investigation that labeled the district a “Cautionary Tale”
Goldman Sachs economists have estimated that a breach of the debt ceiling would immediately halt about one-tenth of US economic activity. According to center-left think tank Third Way, a breach that leads to default could cause the loss of 3 million jobs, add $130,000 to the cost of an average thirty-year mortgage, and raise interest rates enough to increase the national debt by $850 billion.”
When looking in the federal budget for places to make significant cuts, Republicans over the years have always started with a cocktail of so-called non-defense discretionary programs that serve the neediest in our society. In the current context this is merely a frantic effort to exercise political trickery for a Speaker of the House who is hanging onto his position by the thinnest of margins. Far-right Republicans are not only holding the nation’s economy hostage, but their colleagues as well.
According to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities(CBPP), “The McCarthy bill would cut discretionary programs by $3.6 trillion over the next decade below the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) recent baseline projection. Discretionary programs — also known as annually appropriated programs — are the part of the budget that covers programs such as defense, veterans’ health care, child care and preschool, medical research and public health, food and drug safety inspectors, Pell Grants and college work-study, K-12 education, environmental protection, housing, and some transportation programs, among many others … If they protect both
There is a time and place for everything, even in the halls of Congress. Refusing to pay debts already accumulated would land the ordinary citizen in jail, yet in the contemporary political environment is heralded in Congress as astute politics. It is budgetary terrorism.
While President Biden certainly has a long history of being a masterful negotiator and his initial proclivity will be to reason with the unreasonable, there are some alternative avenues that are gaining traction amongst progressive Democrats, including a proposal signed by 11 Senators and supported by an increasing number of legal scholars that revolves around Section 4 of the 14th Amendment that says the “validity of the public debt, authorized by law…shall not be questioned.”
Another potential strategy would be to secure enough votes for a discharge petition that forces a vote even if the speaker or key committees don’t want to act. This would require not only every House Democrat but five Republicans in order to succeed.
However this drama plays itself out, we are dancing precariously on the precipice of a potential economic disaster that will affect the global stage. That our nation is so hopelessly divided and since the chasm is so wide as to forego even the slightest notion that even a handful of congressmen and women can muster the courage to put policy over politics is a major embarrassment for our nation. Let us hope that integrity will rule the day.
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.
The debt ceiling: repeatedly, Democrats and Republicans raise the ceiling, mortgaging our progeny’s future, and sticking them with the bill to pay for our insane spending. Someone has to pay the bill; shamefully, we seem happy to hand it to our kids. Reagan added $1.86 trillion (with a T), George H.W. Bush $1.55T, Clinton $1.4T, George W. Bush $5.8T, Obama $8.6T, Trump $6.7T. In the first two years of his presidency, Biden has added $2.4T in debt. As you can see this isn’t a Democrat or Republican problem, rather a huge American problem, a $31 trillion problem.
The debt-ceiling law was enacted in 1917, and Congress exercises its Constitutional power in Article 1 Section 8 to reduce deficit spending in exchange for raising the ceiling. Most of the deficit reductions since 1980 have been part of a debt-ceiling increase negotiation. Sometimes Congress will grant a small and temporary increase to allow time for additional negotiations.
Spoiler alert: Something like that is going to happen here as well. Biden and McCarthy are putting pressure on each other with the nuclear option of default, but they won’t let that happen. Likely McCarthy isn’t bluffing as much though, as Congress passed a budget with limited increases going forward, reducing the deficit by $4.8 trillion over 10 years. That’s the deficit, not debt, which will still climb. Thankfully, there simply aren’t the votes in Congress to go back to profligate spending.
In 2006, then Sen. Biden voted against raising the debt limit, stating: “Because this massive accumulation of debt was predicted, because it was foreseeable, because it was unnecessary, because it was the result of willful and reckless disregard for the warnings that were given and for the fundamentals of economic management, I am voting against the debt limit increase.” Now as president he calls Congressional demands “really dangerous.”
Our debt is now 129 percent of the GDP, higher than during World War II, the highest in our history. In 1980 it was 32 percent, 1990 54 percent, 2000 55 percent, 2010 90 percent. The trend is ominous. Ratios above 77 percent can hinder economic growth, put a country at risk of default, and we are in the top 12 of the world for debt as a percentage of GDP. We will pay $400 billion in interest this year on this monster, which is more than outlays for veterans programs, food and nutrition (SNAP), Social Security disability, federal and civilian retirement, housing, elementary and secondary education, higher education, supplemental social security income, and transportation, COMBINED! That interest cost each household $3,055, and it would consume all corporate income tax revenue. As interest rates rise, so will the interest on the debt. A 2 percent increase would increase our annual interest payment to $475 billion. The Biden budget will increase the debt from $32.7 trillion now to $50.7 trillion by 2033.
As the politicians continue to add debt through deficit spending, the Congressional Budget Office estimates the debt will soar to 225 percent of the GDP by 2050, and paying the interest will rise from the sixth largest line item it is currently to the largest. No wonder a recent Pew survey found 57 percent
Letters to the Editor
and quickly ended the tenure of the then superintendent.
Moving forward we have endured a board-contrived double move plan that had our kids scheduled to attend a temporary campus woefully equipped to handle our school’s size. Mine and other parents pleas for reason have fallen on deaf ears time and time again. If it were not for the amazing dual immersion program that my children attend I am confident we would have fled the district like so many of our friends and neighbors. A glimmer of hope arrived a couple weeks back when a seismic anomaly was discovered underneath the 36th street campus forcing the
district to re-evaluate the present course of action.
My hope is that the better angels of our nature will prevail and we can move past the hundreds of thousands of dollars of wasted money and finally make the difficult decisions that need to be made. The circumstances that prompted the 7-11 committee report haven’t changed. We still have too many classrooms and not enough students. What money we do have is quickly being squandered pursuing inane plans that only serve the status quo.
Let your school board know at the June 13 meeting that the taxpayers of this fine city are not interested in flushing any more money down
the drain at the 36th Street campus. Frankly, this district needs to come to the understanding that it can not keep spending money it doesn’t have on a school it doesn’t need for parents that do not want it.

PG&E Transmission Line Proposal
Dear Editor, I find it unconscionable that PG&E would try to jam this project down our throats. We live in Circle B Estates at the
of Americans think reducing the deficit is a top priority. Joe Taxpayer isn’t doing much better. Total household debt in America peaked at $17 trillion this year for the first time ever. To keep up with the mountains of debt, pressure will grow to increase taxes. In 2011, U.S. tax revenue was 14.27 percent of GDP, but now it is at 19 percent. Our grandchildren will probably pay over 30 percent, much of which will be for the interest of what we are spending on ourselves today. That will depress economic growth, continue to spike inflation, while they struggle to pay their bills. That is just the predictable outcome, not the frightening one. The last time we had debt approaching the current sad state was during WWII. We borrowed heavily, all resources going to the war effort, as we defended our national sovereignty. It was necessary. Now imagine a real war breaks out again, or a truly horrible pandemic. We would find ourselves in true need to generate money by borrowing, but unable to do so because we had already fully leveraged the country. We would be like the family who has taken out a second on their home, maxed out their credit cards, and has an emergency that they have no resources to draw on. They are bankrupt. Countries don’t go bankrupt, they default, resulting in worthless currency, collapsed economies, and social unrest. Politicians and bankers are hand-wringing that we could default now due to a political impasse, but if they don’t eliminate the deficits, the default will be a real for our progeny, and partisan rhetoric won’t fix it. Pay now, or pay later.

end of Golden Hill Road. This monstrosity would bisect our gated development and be a giant detriment to our health and safety and well-being, not to mention our property values? I built my home in here in 1999. It’s valued at 2.7million dollars. Any idea the impact this would have on that number?
We share a beautiful private lake with four other properties. The aesthetics would be challenged in ways I can only imagine.
Not to mention the six homes that it would run directly in front of, ruining their ability to enjoy their properties as they should. Or the industrial park or the RV park? Its insanity. PG&E
doesn’t care one whit about us or our issues.
This project cannot be allowed to threaten our well-being and our economy. Don’t their rates do enough to offend us?
If needed, our 13 properties that are threatened will take this matter to a court of law for resolution as a class action lawsuit.
We have seen how these high tension lines have impacted the properties east of us where that line runs. Most of the homes look like slums now. They only want to run it as directly and as cheaply as possible. Shame on them.

fairly easily. But I always make a point of hitting all the international brewers because those are obviously more difficult to come by,” added Firestone. “That’s one of the things that we try to accomplish in this beer festival, is to bring beers to Paso Robles that aren’t readily available, that you can’t try. And the California breweries bring beers that are only available at the festival.”
This year’s international breweries included: Birrificio del Ducato, Birrificio Italiano, Cervezeria Antares, Cervejaria Bamberg, Frau Gruber, Garage Project, Mahrs Brau, and Brouwerij Oud Beersel.
As attendees of the FWIBF went around drinking and eating, they were able to vote
for their favorite brewery and restaurant. People’s Choice Award for Best Brewery went to Green Cheek Brewing Company from Southern California, while People’s Choice Restaurant went to Benny’s Pizza from San Luis Obispo.
“It was a fantastic orchestra between our team, the attending breweries, all the local restaurants, Pioneer Days, and their staff,” Firestone said.
The FWIBF continues to benefit Paso Robles Pioneer Day.
On top of the actual beer fest, Firestone Walker decided to build out their event this year so that locals who did not secure tickets to the FWIBF could still participate in all the fun.
“It’s a good problem, but a tough problem that we sell out so quickly because there’s so
adequate safety training. This was addressed with the help of their sponsor, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), who collaborated with Listos California, another organization that provides accessible disaster preparedness information for various cultures and languages throughout the state.
tions. Staff reported that “will not reach cost neutrality without citation revenue.”
Staff’s report says that during the month of March and April, there were 100,046 total parking sessions, of which 8,897 were free parking sessions (89 percent of sessions). Also, during those months, 32,604 sessions were paid by app or text. Members of the public, including downtown business owners, spoke with overwhelming disdain for the parking program. Some told experiences of not receiving a warning for a parking violation — which is what was described in the program — and instead received a parking citation of
ment to exchange Columbus Day with Native American Day, recognized on the fourth Friday in September and in line with the courts calendar. According to staff’s report, “As it is best practice for the County to have a uniform holiday schedule for all County employees, this change will also apply to all Unrepresented staff.”
This resolution eliminates Columbus Day as a paid holiday for all county employees and adds Native American Day as a paid county holiday.
There was no presentation on the item as it was on the consent agenda, and there were no comments from supervisors on the change, passing it unanimously.
Believed to be brought forward following an incident on the Vineyard Drive overpass in Templeton, the Board of Supervisors approved with a 3-2 vote a resolution “condemning racism, bigotry, bias, and hate speech in our community.”
much demand sort of nationally for all these cool brewers who come in from all over the world,” Firestone added. “Sometimes it leaves some of the local community in a lurch. They don’t get to participate necessarily. So these peripheral events, I think, were really our way to sort of bring in the local community a little bit more.”
On Thursday, June 1, Firestone Walker hosted a concert at Paso Robles Park featuring Dante Marsh and the Vibe Setters, with plenty of beer being poured throughout the night. And then, on Friday, June 2, they hosted the Invitational Kickoff Block Party at the brewery.
“We shut down Vendels Circle, right in front of the brewery, and had a block party and gave tours and had a band
Over 500 people attended the SafetyFest throughout the day, making it a successful community event. Volunteers encouraged attendees to sign up for CERT training, who is adding more classes to their portfolio. In the future, Elterman says they are looking to organize an advisory council to focus on and raise awareness for their four safety aspects.
“We know that we are one bad
$50. Other concerns came regarding glitches in the Flowbird kiosk and app programming.
Katelyn Smith, the owner of two downtown businesses, expressed concerns for her employees and businesses.
“We are now being targeted by one of the parking ambassadors, and I say that specifically because he told me he would cite me at any opportunity that he could, and he does,” explained Smith. “I know I am not the only person, downtown business, or resident that receives this treatment.”
She also expressed safety concerns for her employees, who often walk three or four blocks away late at night after work with limited street lighting and police presence.
Jennifer Roush-Kloth, part-owner
District 5 Supervisor Debbie Arnold presented a redacted resolution explaning, “The objections that I had to the prepared resolution was that it called out our community of Templeton ... I don’t think it helps when we react to something divisive with [more] divisive [acts]. The calling out a community that had nothing to do with that.”
It is believed and mentioned that recent incidents that occurred on the Vineyard Bridge overpass in Templeton, where unidentified people held a “white pride” banner. On each occasion, these incidents were responded to with a peace rally organized by the Little Queer Paso group.
The resolution specifically calls out those incidents, which Arnold and District 1 Supervisor John Peschong both agreed should be removed.
Pescong seconded Arnold’s motion to approve the resolution with the following redactions:
WHEREAS, the Board is committed to protecting and fostering these values.
WHEREAS, the County has
and an open pit BBQ. It was just a great opportunity to celebrate with the locals and kick off the weekend,” Firestone stated. “You couldn’t drive down Ramada. There were cars just absolutely lined up all the way down the street from the gas station to the end of the railroad tracks. Not an empty seat in the house. It was just a really great energy, and we had tours going until late in the night.”
Firestone added that Firestone Walker Brewing Company would be hosting the Concert in the Park and the Invitational Kickoff Block Party again next year, with the possibility of it being even bigger. While the exact date for the 11th Annual Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest has not been decided, keep an eye out for those dates when they drop.

Those four things are training, resources, philanthropy, and outreach.” For more information on PasoSafe, visit pasosafe.com.
of Park Cinemas and Main Street Association member, helped issue a community survey for the parking program. Many, she said, feel defeated and not heard by the city, and feel that tourists have become more important than the locals that live here.
“I have been asked by many to provide a voice for them,” said RoushKloth. “They [locals] are angry, they are frustrated, they want nothing to do with downtown anymore.”
According to Roush-Kloth, the public survey that went live on May 25 received 521 responses in 11 days. Over 80 percent of those responses found the parking program to have a negative effect on the community and wished for the removal of the kiosks.
Concluding her comments, RoushKloth addressed the council, “When
observed instances of hate and bigotry on the Vineyard Drive freeway overpass in Templeton, including the recent display of a banner supporting white supremacy. These disturbing expressions of racism have no place in San Luis Obispo County, and have shocked the conscience of the Board of Supervisors and the community we serve.
WHEREAS, the Board is committed to ending discrimination and harassment based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other protected characteristic.
District 4 Supervisor Jimmy Paulding, who proposed the original resolution, responded to Arnold’s revisions.
“Holding up a banner that says ‘white pride’ is very close to ‘white power,’” said Paulding. “I think that it’s important that our board specifically condemn white supremacy, acknowledge the threat that it is and its power to divide our community.”
Paulding, echoed by District 2 Supervisor Bruce Gibson, urged his
are you going to listen to your constituents?”
Councilmember Chris Bausch declared his stance on the program: “My real desire here is to eliminate the program completely. That would be my preference.”
However, he was the only councilmember to feel this way.
Councilmember Steve Gregory said, “We have 700 employees downtown. They did and will take the parking spots over again.”
He added that after reinstating the two free hours of parking, he received several calls from businesses and community members who were content with that decision.
“In the next two years, we’re going to be adding hundreds of hotel rooms downtown,” said Gregory. “Parking is
fellow supervisors to keep the original resolution.
“We saw a heinous act in the display of that white pride banner,” said Gibson. “This strips out any sense that this board actually cares.”
To compromise, Gibson said he would allow modification to strike the words “on the Vineyard Drive Freeway in Templeton,” and that Arnold’s motion would otherwise die.
District 3 Supervisor Dawn OrtizLegg agreed with removing the mention of Templeton, adding “We need to just work towards the elimination of all the disputes we’ve been talking about.”
Peschong, who has lived in Templeton for over 20 years and had visited with protesters following the first incident, stood up for his community and their values.
“Templeton is not these people,” explained Peschong. “We’re a very diverse community and we believe in freedom, but we also believe that there’s no place for racism in Templeton or San Luis Obispo County.”

going to get really intense and this is the way of the future. You need to control the parking.”
Eventually, Mayor Steve Martin motioned to maintain changes to the parking program previously adopted by council on Feb. 21 and authorize the city manager to renew a contract for parking management services with Flowbird and additionally gave staff direction to pursue an ad hoc committee to explore future options for the program, including the option to get rid of the program altogether. The motion was passed with a 3-1 vote, with Bausch voting no and Councilmember Fred Strong being absent.
The next Paso Robles City Council Meeting is scheduled for June 20 at 6:30 p.m.
He further added that removing the mention of the Templeton incident would not take away from the resolution’s importance of condemning racism and declaring diversity, equity, and inclusion as a core value of the board. He also said that he had been informed by law enforcement that the men carrying the banner were from Tulare County and that no one is talking about how this incident was also an anti-Semitic attack.
Following comments, the board voted to approve Arnold’s resolution with a 3-2 vote, Paulding and Gibson dissenting. Gibson then began to present his new motion, in disbelief that Ortiz-Legg voted yes on the motion.
Later on in the meeting, Ortiz-Legg requested to change her vote to instead go with Gibson’s proposed resolution. She asked the board to reconsider the resolution, which Gibson called an “unusual but legal move.”
The board then voted 3-2 to pass resolution with the amended banner incident clause, with Arnold and Peschong dissenting.

Four students named valedictorians and salutatorians
Students will graduate this Thursday
By CAMILLE DeVAUL
TEMPLETON — Seniors from the Class of 2023 will be graduating from Templeton High School this Thursday. Last week, Templeton students were given their honors and celebrated for their accomplishments. This year, the school has four top scholarly students they will be celebrating at graduation. Karen Clark and Heer Shinglot are the 2023 THS co-valedictorians, with Olivia Voos and Elyse Black as co-salutatorians. We asked each scholar various questions on their journey to this accomplishment and what the future may hold for them.
ATN/PRP: How does it feel to be named the valedictorian/salutatorian of your graduating class?
Karen Clark: Being named valedictorian is a great accomplishment, and it made me grateful to receive recognition for my hard work and dedication over the past several years.
Heer Shinglot: Being named valedictorian fills me with immense pride. It represents not only my personal accomplishments but also the sacrifices made by my immigrant parents. It is a true testimony to their own hard work and my own determination.
Olivia Voos: It was so exciting. It was nice to be recognized for the work I’ve done my whole academic career. I was especially excited to be given this honor alongside Elyse; she’s a good friend of mine, and I know that we’ve both worked very hard to get here.
Elyse Black: I feel happy and accomplished — my hard work paid off. I genuinely love learn-
ing and took classes that interested me throughout high school. I wasn’t striving to be at the top of the class, but it is nice to be recognized.
ATN/PRP: What was your reaction when you first found out you were going to be the valedictorian?
KC: Mostly, I was excited both for myself and my fellow co-valedictorian and co-salutatorians. All of us deserve to be where we are, and I am grateful that all of us were acknowledged for our accomplishments.
HS: Finding out I was going to be the valedictorian was a fulfilling and proud moment. The dedication I placed in my academics is being acknowledged, and I feel much joy and gratitude.
OV: I was absolutely shocked. I always knew I was high in our class rank, but actually being tied for second completely caught me off guard. I think my first thought was, “Oh no, I’m going to have to give a speech.”
EB: When I found out I was a salutatorian, I was quite shocked, I must admit. I knew I was high in the class rank, but not that high. Then I started freaking out about the speech I was going to give, but I am also excited to have the opportunity
to speak at graduation.
ATN/PRP: Can you share some of the highlights of your high school journey?
KC: I have participated in many musical groups across our county. I am grateful to have been the drum major for my school’s marching band. Additionally, I have an internship with the Atascadero Mutual Water Company. Lastly, I am proud to have graduated from Cuesta [College] last month with two associate degrees.
HS: A few of my highlights have been: Playing on my school’s tennis team all four years — the memories are truly irreplaceable; partaking in my AP biology course, where I realized molecular biology is the area of study I want to focus on; sitting on the school board for two years where I got to advocate for my peers and values I believed were most important; and starting a Mental Health Awareness club affiliated with the National Alliance of Mental Illness and seeing its impact on our campus and the students.
OV: There’s many, but some highlights are going to Disneyland with FNL [Friday Night Live], going out to eat with classmates after AP testing, tough matches with my tennis team, study groups with my AP calc classmates, and starting traditions
with my track and field team.
EB: I really enjoyed planning and participating in weekly Foreign Language Club meetings for which I was founder and president. I also enjoyed conducting my own study in AP research, where I compared a formulaic pop/rock song to a non-formulaic pop/rock song. I also loved performing in school functions such as plays, musicals, concerts, and Mock Rock.
ATN/PRP: What do you believe contributed to your success as a student and as a valedictorian/salutatorian?
KC: I believe that hard work and dedication are what have contributed to my successes. I have always signed up for extra classes and been excited about learning, which helps me stay motivated and achieve my goals.
HS: I believe the contributing factors are determination, genuine intellectual curiosity, effective time management skills, and perseverance. Though, the most important contributor has been the relationships I’ve made with my friends and family. Their constant support and unwavering encouragement have been the driving force in my success.
OV: I believe my ability to plan ahead. Maintaining a high GPA while having enough time for
extracurriculars and a social life is really contingent on planning. I would start organizing my class schedule very early, and I spent a lot of time coordinating with the counselors.
EB: The amazing teachers who taught me had a lot to do with my success as a student — they constantly brought positive energy to what we were learning, and were approachable and willing to help. The strong work ethic I developed during my time in drama also contributed to my drive and determination to succeed in school.
ATN/PRP: Is there anything you wish you had done differently or any advice you would give your past self looking back?
KC: Something that I wished I had learned sooner was to value corrections from teachers, coaches, and mentors. I had a realization midway through my junior year that every critique I received was there to make me a stronger performer and person, not to hurt me.
HS: In full transparency, I am content and happy with the decisions I have made. The only advice I would tell my past self is to ease the worrying and that it will all work out in the end.
OV: I wish I knew high schoolers could take Cuesta courses
sooner. It’s such a great opportunity to save money by taking college courses early, and it allows you to explore classes and fields that may not be offered at your high school.
EB: I don’t have any advice for my past self. At the beginning of high school, I made the decision to dive into things that interested me, and I’m really glad I did. Drama, jazz band, foreign language club, mock trial, cross country, and swim shaped who I am, and I have a lot of fond memories of the people I met through these activities.
ATN/PRP: What are your plans for the future? Are you pursuing any specific career or academic paths?
KC: I am planning to attend UCLA in the fall. I am planning to double major in geography/environmental studies and physics. I hope to continue to perform music in the future. I’m not yet sure what I hope to do for a career.
HS: I plan to study neuroscience and molecular biology at UCLA, hoping to join the medical field as a neurologist. Through shadowing Dr. Yamagata in Templeton and assisting in research in the field, I am confident this is my path, and I cannot wait to begin my journey.
OV: I will be attending UCLA to study business economics. I’m trying to keep my future career plans as open and flexible as possible in case I have a change of heart, but as of now, after UCLA, I plan to attend law school.
EB: I’m following my dream to be a professional working musician, so I am going all-in on music at Berklee College of Music in Boston after high school. If that doesn’t work out, I’ll probably go back to school to pursue international relations, psychology, or law.
Atascadero Elks celebrate National Youth Week with inspiring robotics demonstrations
Award-winning high school and middle school robotics teams showcase talent and innovation at special event
ATASCADERO — The Atascadero Elks
Lodge #2733 celebrated National Youth Week with an awe-inspiring display of robotics demonstrations by the award-winning Atascadero High School and Middle School Robotics teams. The special dinner event took place on Thursday, May 11, at the Elks Lodge, showcasing the exceptional talents and achievements of local young robotics enthusiasts.
National Youth Week is an annual event celebrated by Elks Lodges across the county, dedicated to acknowledging the accom -
plishments of young individuals within our communities. The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors proclaimed the first week of May as Elks National Youth Week, while Atascadero Mayor Heather Moreno presented the Elks with an official proclamation during the event, officially declaring National Youth Week in Atascadero.
Exalted Ruler Ronnie Maxwell of the Atascadero Elks expressed the organization’s commitment to supporting and celebrating the youth of their community, saying, “One of our top priorities as Elks is supporting the youth in our community and celebrating their successes. The high school and the middle school robotics teams have just completed highly successful seasons, and it was an honor for us to host them and recognize their accomplishments at the lodge.”
The National Youth Week event at the
lodge captivated attendees with robotics demonstrations from the award-winning Atascadero High School and Middle School robotics teams. The young robotics enthusiasts showcased their skills, innovation, and dedication, impressing the audience with their creations and achievements.
As part of their commitment to promoting youth education and fostering technological advancement, the Elks made a contribution of $250 to the Atascadero Middle School Robotics Team during the event. Earlier this year, they also contributed $1,000 to support the High School Robotics Team, demonstrating their unwavering support for these talented young individuals.
Since its establishment in 1987, the Atascadero Elks Lodge has made significant contributions of over $850,000 to various programs, including youth activities,
local sports, programs for handicapped and needy children, patriotic initiatives, veterans programs, and numerous community activities. In addition to their financial support, the Elks actively engage in drug awareness programs at local schools and distribute dictionaries to all third-graders in the area, further exemplifying their dedication to the community’s well-being.
About The Atascadero Elks Lodge : The Atascadero Elks Lodge was founded in the City of Atascadero on September 26, 1987. Guided by its mission to inculcate the principles of charity, justice, brotherly love, and fidelity, the Elks Lodge aims to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its members while fostering the spirit of American patriotism and cultivating fellowship.

Woods Humane Society announces new CEO
Atascadero Greyhound Foundation
AWARENESS - PREVENTION - INTERVENTION - EDUCATION
Woods Humane Society has named Emily L’Heureux as its new chief executive officer.
“The Board of Directors is thrilled to officially announce Emily’s promotion to the role of CEO this month,” said Board President Kandy Noel. “Emily brings a passion for animal welfare advocacy and a long, successful career in business management to this important position. She has a deep knowledge of our organization’s history, mission, vision, and values, and has proven to be an effective leader and collaborator. For all of these reasons and more, she has the full and enthusiastic support of the board.”
Noel explains that L’Heureux has already made an impact on Woods Humane Society. She has increased donations by more than 40 percent; nearly doubled social media engagement to over 80,000 followers; overseen multiple individual fundraising campaigns that have broken organization records; and has personally secured six-figure gifts that will have a lasting effect on the future of the organization.
Notably, as director of development, L’Heureux navigated a time of unprecedented fundraising and operational challenges during the pandemic and led Woods Humane Society to receive increased donations and community support crucial to continuing to fund its operations, fulfill its mission in the San Luis Obispo County community, and perform up to 3,000 adoptions per year.
After three months as the interim CEO, L’Heureux says she is honored to take this next step with the organization.
“I came to Woods because I believed it to be the most dynamic, progressive and impactful animal shelter I
had ever seen,” she said. “I knew there was no better place to join if I wanted to make a difference in the lives of home
less animals. This is the exact same inspiration that drives me today. It is an incredible honor for me to now lead, and also continue to serve this great organization. I am completely committed to building upon Woods Humane Society’s proud legacy of high-quality animal care and community impact.”
As a lifelong advocate of adoption and community service, stemming from her early years of volunteering and fostering rescue animals, L’Heureux is passionate about connecting with, inspiring and empowering generous supporters and animal lovers to fuel the life-saving and transformative work of animal welfare.
Originally from the Central Valley, she says she has always had a house full of rescued animals, and her current group includes 4-year-old shepherd-mix Ranger and kitten Nirmal, both adopted from Woods.
In addition to her tireless work for homeless animals, she currently serves as vice president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (San Luis Obispo chapter), is a founding board member of Junior League of the Central Coast, and is a member of the South County YMCA Advisory Committee.
Woods Humane Society is located at 875 Oklahoma Ave., San Luis Obispo, and at 2300 Ramona Road, Atascadero, and is open to the public daily from 12 to 5 p.m., with adoption hours from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information about Woods, visit WoodsHumane. org or call (805) 543-9316.

If you would like to work with our horses, the first step is to take a Volunteer Training Class. This class covers sanctuary rules, basic safe horsemanship skills, and an introduction to some of the horses that you will be working with. After completion of the class you are welcome to come volunteer and help with the horses any time during our volunteer hours. Volunteer hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 8am to 3:30pm, and we are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Note: We do not allow volunteers to ride the horses at Redwings. There are other ways to get involved and volunteer at Redwings too. We have opportunities to help in our rose and memorial garden, volunteering in the office, helping with events and fundraising, and more.

barbie butz COLUMNIST
Last Friday, a gathering of members from Chapter HL, Paso Robles, and Chapter VF, Atascadero, of P.E.O. set up an informational table in the El Paseo on Traffic Way in Atascadero. The goal of the group was to inform people about P.E.O. and its philanthropies.
The Mission Statement of the organization reads: P.E.O. is a Philanthropic Educational Organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans and stewardship of Cottey College, and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.
P.E.O. has been celebrating women helping women for more than 150 years. Since its inception in 1869, the nonprofit has helped more than 119,000 women pursue educational goals by providing over $398 million in grants, scholarships,
The Sisterhood also owns and supports Cottey College, a nationally ranked, fully accredited independent, liberal arts and sciences college for women located in Nevada, Missouri.
Through membership, the P.E.O. Sisterhood has brought together more than half a million women in the United States and Canada who are passionate about helping women advance through education while supporting and motivating them. In addition to the educational philanthropies, the organization provides a framework of support and community for all members.
What started with a bond of friendship among seven women in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, is now one of the oldest women’s organizations in North America with close to 6,000 chapters. Headquarters are in DesMoines, Iowa.
To learn more about P.E.O., visit peointernational.org or contact Linda Smith, Chapter VF President at (217) 851-9086, or Janet Rountree, Chapter HL President, at (805) 440-2156.

The Non-Buying Bidder
lee pitts COLUMNIST
I’ve worked about every kind of auction there is, from A to Z, automobiles to zebras, and in every case, the auction crew had to deal with this menacing nuisance. As far as I know, there are at least four species that belong to this genus of what I call the non-buying bidder. These include ...
The Big Shot — You’ll find this fully-feathered fathead at the charity, rare automobile, and high-dollar wine auctions. They are easy to spot, and that is their objective ... to be noticed.
I remember one charity auction where the sale crew had to rent tuxedos to wear and pay $18 for the Cokes we drank. Although they didn’t inform the crowd, many of the items had to meet floor prices. A car dealer had donated a brand-new exotic automobile to the auction with the provision that if it didn’t bring $125,000, it didn’t sell.
Knowing there was a floor price, two very vain board
members got into a fake bidding battle all the way to $124,000 giving everyone the impression they had money to burn. We had to beg the pompous jerks for every bid and the crowd gave the imposters a standing ovation for their fake generosity. Not one cent was made for the charity. We pumped up the egos of two arrogant imbeciles and the whole thing made me want to purge my $18 Coke.
The Auction Addict — In the words of writer Larry McMurtry, “People get irrationally competitive at auctions.” To which I would add, “Especially when fueled by copious amounts of booze.” At auctions where liquor is served, beauty is often in the eye of the beer holder.
Bidding at auctions is fun and some folks just can’t control their competitive urge to out-bid another drunk. That’s how you end up with a guy waking up the next morning with a hangover, $15,000 lighter in the wallet, with a brand new Sea-Doo in the driveway. And he doesn’t even know how to swim. There ought to be an organiza-
tion to help such people known as the AA (Auction Addicts).
The Fly Swatter — It doesn’t happen very much these days, but 30 years ago, when bull sales didn’t average $5,000, let alone $1,500, we considered ourselves lucky if we got the bulls off the scale. Some owners would put a floor price under their bulls based on what they’d bring in the slaughter run at the local auction market. For example, the seller might put a $1,200 floor on his bulls.
Although the floor price wasn’t announced, it didn’t take a genius to understand that there was one. Often auction junkies would have a glorious time bidding the price just short of the floor. I recall one sale where we weren’t getting any bulls sold and after about 10 ‘no sales,’ the owner whispered in the auctioneer’s ear to lower the floor. You should have seen the look on the guy’s face when, all of a sudden, we sold a bull to him for $1,100. After the sale, he came up to me and said, “Lee, you gotta help me out. I bought a bull, but I don’t own a single cow to breed him to. I was just having a little fun and my wife is gonna kill me.”
tual awakening, we learn to make choices for ourselves and our lives that promote healing, health, and a deeper connection with the God of our understanding. Selfcare is a choice.

Other excuses for being caught were, waving to someone, swatting flies, scratching a nose, or winking at a cute gal. By far, the most used excuse was, “I was just trying to help.”
The Hide and Seeker — Although nearly extinct, this species used to be seen at consignment horse sales, usually in the back of the room with a clear path to an exit. Most reputable horse sales these days have strict rules that don’t allow ‘buy-backs,’ but that doesn’t stop a consigner from asking his brother-in-law to stand in the back of the room and bid his horse up. We refer to such people as ‘rabbits’, and it’s important to spot rabbits early in case he bids one time too many and ends up actually buying the horse. Invariably in such an incident, the rabbit tries to escape out the back of the room before we can get his name or his buyer number. Believe me, early in my career (50 years ago), there were many occasions when I had to go rabbit hunting.

your quality of life are prioritizing sleep, practicing mindfulness or meditation, engaging in regular physical activity, connecting with others, and setting boundaries.
Self-care refers to intentional actions and practices that individuals undertake to promote their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It involves taking time to prioritize and nurture oneself physically and emotionally to maintain a healthy balance in life.
Self-care activities can vary significantly from person to person.
Still, they often include getting enough sleep, eating nutritious food, exercising regularly, practicing relaxation techniques, pursuing hobbies, spending time with loved ones, setting boundaries, and seeking support when needed. Specific self-care practices can be tailored to your preference and needs, helping you recharge, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being.
As we progress in our spiri-
Self-care is vital on a spiritual level for many reasons. It nourishes and supports all aspects of our being — mind, body, and spirit. Caring for yourself can cultivate a deeper connection with your inner self and higher consciousness. When you prioritize self-care, you create space for self-reflection, inner healing, and personal transformation. By tending to your physical, emotional, and mental well-being, you enhance your capacity to experience spiritual growth, heightened awareness, and a greater sense of alignment with your true self. Self-care is a foundation for our spiritual journey, enabling us to be more present, balanced, and receptive to the wisdom and insights that can arise from within.
Five self-care practices you can incorporate today to improve
Prioritizing sleep means getting enough sleep which is crucial for your overall well-being. Establish a regular sleep schedule, create a calming bedtime routine, and ensure a comfortable sleep environment.
Practicing mindfulness or meditation means taking a few minutes each day to engage in mindfulness or meditation. This practice can help reduce stress, improve focus, and promote a sense of calm and clarity.
Engaging in regular physical activity means finding an activity you enjoy, whether it’s walking, dancing, yoga, or any other form of exercise, and making it a regular part of your routine. Exercising has numerous physical and mental health benefits.
Connecting with others is about building and nurturing relationships, which is essential
for emotional well-being. Reach out to friends or family members, schedule a coffee date, or participate in group activities to maintain social connections. Setting boundaries and practicing saying no empowers you to prioritize your needs and minimize resentments. Learn to say no to tasks or commitments that overwhelm you and make time for activities that bring you joy and relaxation.
Remember, self-care practices vary for each person, so feel free to customize them based on your preferences and needs. Practicing self-care is an integral part of our human experience. Your evolution depends on your commitment to self-care. Try adding or increasing your time spent on the suggestions above this week. You deserve it. And so it is.
