On Friday, March 10, Monterey County Superior Court Presiding Judge Jennifer O’Keefe sentenced Paul Flores, 46, to serve 25 years to life in state prison after a jury convicted him last October of Kristin’s murder. As part of his sentencing, Paul will have

Prior to Paul’s nal sentencing, the court heard a motion from his defense lawyer Robert Sanger to seek a new trial, dismissal of charges, and acquittal. According to reports, Sanger

We hope that victims everywhere know that there are people in the Justice System who will stand up to make sure their voices are heard.”

Another parent, Jessica Barrett, also challenged the chemistry textbook in a letter, “I was very surprised to nd the United Nations Sustainability Goals for 2030 within the rst few pages.

SLO County Sheri Ian Parkinson released a statement regarding Paul’s sentencing, “I agree with the sentence of 25-years-to-life handed down today against Paul Flores for the murder of Kristin Smart. It was a long time coming, but it is a decision that is right and just. Our thoughts right now are with the Smart family. Today is not about us and what we did, but about them and what they do now.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. f 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.

inking of Warmer Days and Beef Pot Roast
barbie butz COLUMNIST
Well, so much for needing rain. It’s exciting but a little frightening to listen to the statistics about the storms and all the rain we are getting. I noticed just before the last big storm that the trees around town were in bloom, but with the wind and rain, they are looking rather sad right now. However, we all know that it won’t be too long before we’ll be discussing the heat! I know there will be some beautiful sunny, comfortable days in between.
Speaking of warmer days, mark your calendar right now for the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival on June 24 at Atascadero Lake Park, starting at 4 p.m. and ending at 8 p.m. during that wonderful late afternoon-early evening time we all enjoy here in the North County. Voted “Best Outdoor Experience” by Atascadero News Magazine, come and see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
e “best deal” pre-sale tickets are available now through
April 31 for $80 per person and includes $10 Festival Bucks to spend on food, art, crafts, or as a donation to the Charles Paddock Zoo. General Admission tickets after April 31 will be $90 and will include the Festival Bucks. Tickets at the gate on the day of the event will be $100 and include the Festival Bucks. So, buy now and save.
Tickets can be purchased at the Atascadero Chamber o ce at 6907 El Camino Real, Suite A, or online at atascaderowinefest. com
In addition to tasting some spectacular wines, beers, and distilled spirits, there will be great food, live music to listen to or dance to, a fun “Roar ‘n’ Pour” tasting area in the Zoo, Fine Art vendors, and much more.
For more information and lists of participants, visit the website atascaderowinefest.com.
For this week’s recipe, I was looking for cold-weather foods and not those that say “spring.” We love a beef pot roast now and then with mashed potatoes. So, here’s what I found to share with you.
Red-Wine Pot Roast with Porcini
• 1 cup low-salt chicken broth or beef broth
• 1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
1 4-pound boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion coarsely chopped
• 2 celery stalks with some leaves, cut into 1/2-inchthick
• 3 garlic cloves, smashed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram plus sprigs for garnish
1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, drained
• 1 cup dry red wine
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Bring broth to simmer in saucepan. Remove from heat; add mushrooms, cover, and let stand until soft, about 15 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to cutting board. Chop coarsely. Reserve mushrooms and broth separately.
Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Heat oil in heavy large ovenproof pot over medium high heat. Add beef and cook until brown on all sides, about 15 minutes total. Transfer beef to large plate. Pour o all but 1 tablespoon drippings from pot. Place pot over medium heat. add onion and celery. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sauté
e Dictionary of Junk
lee pitts COLUMNIST
If you’re a reader of classi ed ads like myself, you know there’s some confusion as to what we should call the sale of the debris left over from living our lives. What is the di erence, for example, between a yard sale and a barn sale? I’ll attempt to answer that question, and many more, about what you should expect next time you go looking for the junk you don’t need and will never use.
Garage Sale — is is what happens when the husband nally cleans out the garage after years of nagging. Since none of the man’s stu quali es as junk, that means everything that’s for sale will belong to the wife or kids. Mostly it’s Tupperware without lids, kid’s clothes that have been handed down two times too many, broken Roseville pottery, 1954 World Book Encyclopedias and napkins for a wedding reception that ended in divorce years ago. e garage sale
is seen as a quick way to generate some income to keep the lights on and the family fed in a cashflow emergency. But beware, some entrepreneurial types buy stu at other garage sales and sell it at their own after marking it up 300 percent. I know one guy who actually tells people at his weekly garage sales that if they didn’t nd what they were looking for, he could order it for them.
Rummage Sale —This is a garage sale on steroids for churches and PTA’s. e organizations and churches ask their members to bring any unwanted items and on a Saturday all the junk is o ered to the general public. Except ... if there’s anything good some church member will grab it long before the general public ever sees it. I know one atheist antique dealer who joined the Methodist church just to get rst crack at their rummage. at’s why the only things left are year-old calendars, clothes with broken zippers, ancient computers and printers, jigsaw puzzles with pieces missing, Danielle Steele and John Grisham paperbacks, Time-Life books and Pyrex nesting bowl sets that are missing the blue bowl. (Why is it always
the small blue bowl?)
Yard Sale — ese are nothing more than drive-by garage sales where people can look at the junk while creeping by in their cars at ve miles per hour. e problem is the driver often forgets they’re driving. ese sales are good if you need a mangled Chevy pickup bumper from 1970, particle board furniture or an old couch that’s missing a cushion or two. ey’re also good for avoiding sales tax because no one charges it. Once I really scored when I bought a 100 piece ball cap collection. Since most of the caps were the kind with webbing, which I hate, I use the caps as oil strainers and throw them away when clogged. I also bought what I think is the largest ballpoint pen collection in the world featuring pens that advertise constipation drugs that I think belonged to a gastroenterologist.
Barn Sale — ese should really be called “Rust Sales” because everything is covered in it. People go to these because they’ve heard about “barn nd” Ferraris worth two million bucks and Snap-On toolboxes lled with hundred-dollar wrenches. Mostly what you’ll nd are certied pre-used bolts and rusty
until beginning to brown, about 8 minutes Add garlic, chopped marjoram, and reserved porcini mushrooms, sauté 1 minute. Using hands, crush tomatoes, 1 at a time, into pot. Cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently and scraping up browned bits from bottom of pot. Add wine; boil 5 minutes. Add reserved mushroom broth, leaving any sediment behind. Boil 5 minutes. Return beef and any accumulated juices to pot. Cover; transfer to oven. Cook 1 1/2 hours. Turn beef and continue cooking until tender, about 1 1/2 hours longer. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Cool slightly. Refrigerate uncovered until cool. Cover and keep refrigerated. Transfer beef to cutting board; tent with foil. Spoon fat from surface of juices in pot. Bring juices to boil; cook until liquid is reduced to 4 cups, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cut beef into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Transfer to platter. Spoon juices over, garnish with marjoram sprigs, and serve. 6 Servings Cheers!

nails. Lots and lots of rusty nails because no one has pounded a nail since pneumatic nail guns were invented. You’ll also nd pallets of one-gallon paint cans that are one-fourth full of mustard yellow or pea-soup-colored paint. Here’s some good advice: never buy a rattle can of paint at a barn sale and always plug in those old Craftsman drills to see if they work.
Estate Sale — These are far-and-away the best junk for the money, but be advised, there’s an entire subset of dealers who scan Craigslist for these sales, get up at two thirty in the morning to be rst in line, and then buy up all the good stu to sell in their booth at an antique mall. Also, because the words “estate sale” attracts buyers like bars do drunks, oftentimes you’ll see garage or yard sales advertised as “estate sales”. But remember, to be a true estate sale, someone had to die.
Estate sales are unbeatable for acquiring junk to sell at your own estate sale when you croak.

With this new awareness, you now know what you didn’t know, and you can make a conscious choice between being right or being happy — being right results in temporary happiness.

Musical Spurs Young Love in Classic Rom-Com Style
TEMPLETON — “Disney’s High School
Musical” is fun for the whole family. Almost 40 students are involved in this production of high energy and upbeat musical numbers.
Sure, you know exactly what’s going to happen, but would you really want it to happen any other way? Audiences can enjoy the infectious energy of young people doing what they love.
Directed by Templeton theater arts instructor Catherine Kingsbury, the play will be performed ursday and Friday, March 23 and 24, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 25, at 4 p.m.; ursday, March
30, and Friday, March 31, at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, April 1, at 4 p.m. Tickets are available at templetondrama.org for $20 per person and $15 for seniors and students. Proceeds help support the Templeton High School Drama Program. e show is lled with positive messages about friendship and being true to yourself. It’s also lled with great comedy and toe tappin’, hand clappin’ musical numbers. e stage show is di erent from the movie in that the characters are more believable, not so stereotypical, and have a lot more heart. A few new characters have been added, and there’s a lot more music and dance.
Based on the popular Disney Channel TV movie “High School Musical,” the play follows the story of Troy Bolton, East High basketball star, who is caught between his newfound passion for singing (and the new girl, Gabri-
ella) and his duties toward his basketball team and his dad, the coach. Meanwhile, the shy and smart Gabriella Montez has fallen in with the “Brainiacs” who discourage her interest in a jock and her pursuit of such frivolous activities as musicals. Finally, the president of the Drama Club, the popular Sharpay, will do anything to maintain her queen bee status. Will Gabriella and Troy manage to withstand the pressures and stay true to themselves?
e movie’s screenwriter, Peter Barsocchini, wrote the show for his daughter Gabriella and named many of the characters after her friends.
e stage book writer, David Simpatico, honored his own high school drama teacher by making Ms. Darbus more sympathetic.
e Templeton High School Drama Program fosters skills and knowledge of theatre arts
and nurtures personal growth and creativity in students through educational theater. e program also entertains and educates its audiences with a wide variety of plays and performances from many eras and genres. THS Drama actively promotes community involvement in theatre arts as a life-long endeavor.
Kingsbury’s philosophy as a theater teacher and director stems from being a high school educator rst. It’s important to her that the students learn skills and information that will help them at the next level of their education or career training — whatever that may be. If they want to pursue a career in theatre, then they will be well prepared. If they want to pursue a career in anything else, they will also be prepared with good communication skills and work ethics, especially working in a team environment.

ATASCADERO — The inaugural Jr. CEO program, coordinated by the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce, will culminate with Jr. CEO Business Day on Saturday, April 1. e event, showcasing Jr. CEO participants selling their products, will occur next to La Plaza in downtown Atascadero from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. e community is invited to attend and support the small businesses.
Fifty-six kids participated in the program, which provides a unique educational opportunity for elementary and junior high students by o ering ve virtual workshops focused on entrepreneurial skills. Sessions include fundamentals for setting up your business, cost models, safety and food preparation, marketing and customer service, and savings and money management.
One Jr. CEO is 10-year-old Madeline Gonzales.
“ e favorite thing I have learned is the potential to actually turn a hobby into a business and make money,” Madeline
said. “My business is making balloon animals and my business name is Pop805.”
“When I asked my daughter if she wanted to do this class, she said ‘absolutely’ and was extremely excited,” said Valerie Gonzales, Madeline’s mother and Cross Country Mortgage loan advisor. “I was inspired to have my daughter take this class because having the model to start a business opens up endless opportunities now and in the future for her life.”
Josh Cross, Chamber president/CEO, led each virtual workshop. Participants received an interactive workbook for each session.
“I can’t wait to see how these
young entrepreneurs contribute their talents to our community,” Cross said. “ e Chamber is thrilled to invest in tomorrow’s leaders today.”
Gonzales believes that the Atascadero Chamber is o ering a great opportunity for area youth. “I am proud of our community and the support it pours into the younger generation. I wish I had this class when I was a kid. I am even learning myself.”
e Junior CEO Program is sponsored by Better Business Bureau, Coast Hills Credit Union, Central Coast Moving Company, Eckerd Connects, and the San Luis Obispo County O ce of Education.
