SENIOR LIVING

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — The fate of Diablo Canyon Power Plant seems slightly puzzling at this point. Up until recently, it was assumed the nuclear power plant would be closing around 2025. Overseen and monitored by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the plant is licensed to operate Unit 1 into 2024 and Unit 2 into 2025. However, it is likely that it will continue to operate beyond then. Amidst annual California heat waves and knowing that the continuous use of electricity surges during times of excessive heat, state lawmakers recently

approved SB 846, which keeps Diablo Canyon Power Plant open until 2030 and gives operator PG&E a $1.4 billion loan to do so. Once the bill was approved, the next day, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed it into law. The governor wants to extend the life of the plant, and that notion has received widespread opposition from legislators. In contrast, the measure, authored by Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham of San Luis Obispo and Senator Bill Dodd of Napa, gained overwhelming support in the Assembly in a 67-3 vote. In 2016, PG&E partnered with labor and environmental organizations on a joint proposal agreement to retire Diablo Canyon Power Plant at the end of its current Nuclear Regulatory Commission operating licenses. “This proposal was brought CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

The Floral Parlor Celebrates its Official Introduction to Paso Robles with Sept. 15 Ribbon Cutting The Floral Parlor has been in town since 2020 and just celebrated its second anniversary By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

PASO ROBLES — On Thursday, Sept. 15, at 4 p.m., Paso Robles city leaders, members of the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce, and close friends gathered at The Floral Parlor for their official grand opening and a ribbon-cutting ceremony provided by the Chamber. The Floral Parlor opened in September 2020, and due to COVID-19, the shop and its owner, Sunny Sheldrake, never got to have an official grand opening, but two years later, that changed. Sheldrake, originally from Southern California, moved to Paso Robles in 2017 after her daughter attended a wedding in Paso and told her that this was where she

needed to be. With a business background and experience in both design and marketing. Sheldrake combined her life knowledge in all three areas with her love of flowers, and The Floral Parlor was born. “I think my niche market is that I do unique,” Sheldrake said. “I can buy luxury florals. If you’re an FTD person, it’s hard for you to buy dahlias or imported tulips or any of that because you’re not going to sell them probably. But here, that’s what we do.” In addition to providing the North County with beautiful blooms that are hard to find elsewhere and sourcing many of their flowers from local farmers, The Floral Parlor makes floral arrangements for events. From weddings to baby showers and everything in between. They even did 89 boutonnières and corsages for Paso High’s prom last year and recently started doing balloon arches as well. The team, run by Sheldrake,

includes Andrew England, Lauren Darbyshire, Jennifer Beckett, Georgia Terrell, Khyler Blanton, and Jillian Lade. “I like to give people whatever they want,” continued Sheldrake. “I’m just a single successful gal.” Sheldrake has also become a part of the local community since her move to the area and teams up with many local charities by donating flower arrangements every month for a year. “The thing that differentiates me in this market nowadays is that I don’t work with Teleflora or FTD or any of those people and that really helps. I can buy what flowers I want. No one’s dictating to me what I need to buy and what I need to charge,” said Sheldrake of her business on Spring Street. To find out more about The Floral Parlor go to thefloralparlor.com, or visit the adorable storefront at 1321 Spring St #101.

Plans Released Depicting Paso Robles’s Future Look The plan includes additions and Landing will consist of a distribution warehouse, improvements across the city for business park, and commercial lifestyle center and hotel. the next 10 years Airport Road will be expecting additional By CAMILLE DEVAUL

PASO ROBLES — The City of Paso Robles is looking forward to the exponential growth of several hotels and projects coming to the area. Paso Robles Community Development Director Warren Frace presented the city’s plans for the future to the Paso Robles Main Street Design and Economic Vitality committees this week. The future plan for Paso Robles spans over the next 10 years and includes plans for more housing, jobs, and hotels in the city. Residents will see more than 1,000 new hotel rooms come to Paso Robles in the next decade. Three hundred of those rooms are already under construction. To accommodate higher traffic expected to come to the area, the city has plans for new bridges and widening new streets, which the city is preparing for. One large project the city is anticipating is the transition of the Paso Robles Boy’s School into “The Landing Project” off Airport Road. The

changes — the Airport Road Circulation Plan. This plan includes a proposed new Huer Huero Creek Bridge with a roundabout and Union Road overcrossing. Several hotels are expected to be built in Paso Robles, including the 56-room Hotel Paso Robles placed on 14th and Pine streets and the 110-room Hotel Ava on 10th and Pine streets. The plan also depicts a “light industrial district” on Ardmore Road near Golden Hill, and the Railroad District Corridor is still in the plans for Downtown Paso Robles. For housing, over 4,000 units will be built throughout the different specific housing plans — the majority of which sit in the Olsen/Chandler Ranch Specific Plan. The Redtail Apartments on Creston Road broke ground this September, which will bring 200 units by the end of its construction.

Morro Bay Invitational cross country meet brings in 40 schools from across the state By NEIL FARRELL

NORTH COUNTY — Templeton and Paso Robles high schools left big marks on this year's Morro Bay Invitational cross country meet in Morro Bay, with one Eagle winning the boy's race and a Lady Bearcat crossing third in the girl's race. Held Sept. 10 at the high school by the beach, the Morro Bay Invitational drew some 40 schools from across California, including powerhouse North County programs. Templeton High School junior Joshua Bell led the boy's race wire-to-wire as he took an early lead through the campus portion of the 3-mile course, and out onto the sands of Morro Strand, by far the toughest going in the school's challenging cross country course. Bell clocked a blistering 14 minutes, 53.6 seconds to take home the first-place medal. There were 206 runners in the boy's race this year. And while the meet doesn't keep team scores, it does hand out medals to the top 15 finishers in each race. Bell's time left second-place finisher Josiah Delgadillo, of Clovis High, far behind as Delgadillo, also a junior, crossed the finish line in 15:18.4. Those two harriers were the only ones to medal this year from the North

County. Atascadero High didn't bring its varsity teams to the meet but did compete in the JV races. Other top runners for Paso Robles and Templeton were: Brian Arndt (34th, 17:15.6) and Tristan Poggi (35th, 17:16.8) of PRHS; Nicholas Jansen (57th, 17:58.6) and Nikita Norton (68th, 18:15.7) of THS; Joseph Martinez (18:25.2), Bishop Morsette (18:28.9), Fernando Perez (19:06.1) and Ethan Castelli (19:08.3) of PRHS; and, JD Black (19:18.7), Mason Mudgett (19:57.7), Cohen Wallace (19:59.6) and Carter Harding (20:53.6) of THS.

Nicole Bridges, a junior from Liberty High in Bakersfield, clocked 18:28.2 to win going away. A junior, Bridges last year finished in the top 10 at the state meet.

International Red Panda Day Comes to Charles Paddock Zoo with Fun Activities The zoo celebrated the species on Sept. 17 By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — On Saturday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Charles Paddock Zoo celebrated International Red Panda Day with extra fun for all patrons who headed out to the zoo that day. International Red Panda Day falls every Sept. 18, and the zoo picks the closest Saturday to the official day every year. "This year, we had some activities. We're starting to grow the event a little bit, so we had some extra activities for the kids to do. We always give away some free activity booklets that are put out by the International Red Panda

Network," said Lead Zookeeper Flavia Parotti. "We had some coloring, zookeeper talks, and we had it so the kids could make a cute little Red Panda headband. It was all very kid-oriented, and it went really well." All of the activities for the day were included with general admission, and families took advantage of being able to learn more about red pandas.

Currently, the zoo has four red pandas. "The public can only see two. So we have two females that are on exhibit, and then off exhibit, we have a breeding pair that we just recently set them up," Parotti said. "And because they're a breeding pair, they need a little bit more privacy. So that's why they're held off exhibit."

CHARITY AUCTION

She also said that they're hoping to have cubs after the next breeding season, and the cubs will be made visible to the public as they go about helping conserve this adorable species. "Unfortunately, red pandas are threatened in the wild. In the last two decades, 50% of their population has been lost, and the numbers are continuously decreasing," Parotti said. "They are a species that really really needs help from us, humans, in order to stop this decline. Otherwise, they are going to go extinct." The zoo has been focusing on animal-specific days, so they can teach the kids and families coming to the zoo about the animals who need our help on the planet.

LOCAL NEWS KRISTIN SMART TRIAL

Prosecution Rests Its Case in Kristin Smart Trial Defense will begin calling their witnesses to the stand By CAMILLE DEVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The prosecution rested its case against Paul and Ruben Flores in the Kristin Smart Trial on Tuesday, Sept. 20, in the Monterey County Superior Courtroom in Salinas. Paul Flores is on trial for Kristin’s murder. The 19-year-old Cal Poly student went missing following the Crandall Way party over Memorial Day weekend in May 1996. His father, Ruben Flores, is accused of helping his son cover up the crime. Starting Wednesday, Sept. 21, Paul and Ruben’s defense attorneys will begin to call their witnesses though both attorneys attempted to request a mistrial from Judge Jennifer O’Keefe on Tuesday. At the end of testimonies on Tuesday, Ruben’s defense attorney Harold Mesick told the court there was no evidence linking his client to Kristin’s murder. Despite both attorneys’ attempts, the judge decided to proceed

with the trial. Before resting his case, Deputy District Attorney Chris Peuvrelle walked the jury through the case evidence from the beginning. Court returned on Monday, Sept. 19, after a week-long break. Forensic DNA Analyst Angela Butler returned to the stand on Monday to continue her testimony regarding a package she received from SLO County Sheriff ’s Detective Clint Cole in March 2021. The package contained soil obtained from that month's search of Ruben’s home.

According to reports, Butler testified to finding unusual pieces of soil in a variety of colors. She described tests she conducted on the soil samples — all six samples came back with weak positive results for blood. Butler went on to confirm for the court that she was able to confirm the presence of human blood in the samples. However, Butler says she was unable to pull DNA from the samples. Butler told the court she received 13 positive blood samples from soil samples she received in March and April of 2021 but then testified receiv-

ing another package of soil samples from Cole in April 2021. Butler told the court one of those samples was negative for blood, but two of those samples tested positive for the presence of human blood. Other samples varied from negative to weak positive to positive for the presence of human blood. On Tuesday, Butler returned to the stand to begin the cross-examination with Paul’s attorney Robert Sanger and Ruben’s attorney Mesick. Forensic specialist Shelby Liddell took the stand after Butler’s testimony wrapped up. Peuvrelle questioned Liddell on a cargo trailer from Ruben’s property and bedding from a home in San Pedro, where Paul was living during his arrest. SLO County Sheriff ’s Deputy Jason Nadal took the stand next, and Peuvrelle questioned him about the search warrant he served at Paul’s home. Nadal described a Dell computer taken from a sunroom in the residence and it was submitted into evidence. SLO County Sheriff ’s Detective JT Camp was brought to the stand to discuss a search warrant he served with Cole in May 2021. The search,

LAW ENFORCEMENT

as described by Camp, was to obtain buccal DNA swab samples. The meeting was pre-arranged by Mesick. Camp explained to the jury that while Ruben was reading the warrant, he stated Susan Flores (Paul’s mother) and her boyfriend Mike McConville had committed no felonies, “only me.” According to Camp, Ruben then corrected himself to say he was the only one who was arrested. Peuvrelle then played for the court an audio recording of Cole and Camp serving the warrant at Ruben's home. According to reports, Ruben can be heard saying, “They haven’t committed no felonies, only me … I mean, I am the only one that has been arrested.” While Kristin’s remains have not been found, she was legally declared dead in 2002. The trial was moved to Salinas after San Luis Obispo County Judge Craig van Rooyen ruled the father and son would not receive a fair trial in SLO County. While Paul and Ruben are being tried together, they will have separate juries. Paso Robles Press / Atascadero News will be following this story and update as new information becomes available.

FATAL ACCIDENT

Atascadero Police Chief Released from Contract for 'Incompatible Management Styles' STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero has released Police Chief Robert (Bob) Masterson from his employment agreement with the cityeffective Wednesday, Sept. 14. In accordance with Atascadero Municipal Code, the council confirmed the release of Masterson under Section 3.A of his employment contract which allows for release of an employee on a not-for-cause basis. According to the city, this clause is often included in employment contracts for municipal government executives and allows for release if the employee is not a good fit. Masterson and City Manager Rachelle Rickard state that “incompatible management styles” is the compelling reason behind the employment release. Rickard stated, “Chief Masterson is a very capable chief with strong leadership skills, so it was only after very careful consideration that it was decided to end Chief Masterson’s employment with the city.” During Masterson’s tenure, he worked to address and implement programs for the unhoused population by re-establishing the CAT Team (Community Action Team) and establishing the OUR Team. In addition, he has sent officers to Critical Incident Stress Management training

ROBERT MASTERSON that supports officers in high-stress situations, led the team through the COVID timeframe, worked to revamp the budget and hired seven officers and four dispatchers. “We appreciate Chief Masterson’s service to the city over the last 20 months and thank him for the dedication, integrity, commitment, and heart that he brought to the job every day,” stated Rickard. Bob Masterson has held the police chief position since January 2021, replacing former Police Chief Jerel Haley, who had retired after leading the city’s police department for nine years. The city wishes Bob well in his future endeavors and will begin the search for a new police chief in the months ahead. The city stated they have no further comments to make on this matter.

NATIONAL DEA Warns of Brightly Colored Fentanyl Used to Target Young Americans The Drug Enforcement Administration is advising the public of an alarming emerging trend of colorful fentanyl available across the United States. In August 2022, DEA and our law enforcement partners seized brightly-colored fentanyl and fentanyl pills in 18 states. Dubbed “rainbow fentanyl” in the media, this trend appears to be a new method used by drug cartels to sell highly addictive and potentially deadly fentanyl made to look like candy to children and young people. “Rainbow fentanyl—fentanyl pills and powder that come in a variety of

bright colors, shapes, and sizes—is a deliberate effort by drug traffickers to drive addiction amongst kids and young adults,” said DEA Administrator Anne Milgram. “The men and women of the DEA are relentlessly working to stop the trafficking of rainbow fentanyl and defeat the Mexican drug cartels that are responsible for the vast majority of the fentanyl that is being trafficked in the United States.” Brightly-colored fentanyl is being seized in multiple forms, including pills, powder, and blocks that resembles sidewalk chalk. Despite claims that certain colors may be more potent than others, there is no indication through DEA’s laboratory testing that this is the case. Every color, shape, and size of fentanyl should be considered extremely dangerous. In September 2021, DEA launched the One Pill Can Kill Public Awareness Campaign to educate Americans about the dangers of fake pills. Additional resources for parents and the community can be found on DEA's Fentanyl Awareness page. If you encounter fentanyl in any form, do not handle it and call 911 immediately.

Boys & Girls Clubs Receive Generous Donation

The NONPROFIT 805.237.6060

T

he Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast (BGCMCC) announces the launch of the Stollmeyer Challenge this back to school season. Rick Stollmeyer sees the growth of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast as so vital to helping local kids succeed that he has agreed to match all donations, dollar for dollar, up to $300,000 in 2022. Mr. Stollmeyer is passionate about the importance of exposure to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) for youth to be successful in post-secondary education and the workforce. This challenge is expected to motivate current and potential donors to Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast to continue or increase their giving to be part of this transformative donation opportunity. Stollmeyer — founder of Mindbody, a leader in cloudbased service platforms for the wellness industry, a Naval Academy graduate, and a former submarine officer — appreciates firsthand the value of technological learning. He understands that the nationally recognized, high-quality programming happening every day at our local Boys & Girls Clubs is precisely the activity kids need to supplement their in-school opportunities. Investing an additional $300,000 to what our current

donors contribute will further improve our Clubs’ abilities to serve more kids at an even higher level. This funding will also help in the establishment of the Stollmeyer Boys & Girls Club scholarship with specific criteria for Club Members who want to attend Cuesta or Hancock Community Colleges. Our Clubs will continue to develop wellrounded programs to expose youth to STEAM activities in combination with exposure to career pathways, college visits, and mentors, all ensuring local kids can meet their full potential. BGCMCC is committed to closing the opportunity gap in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics with innovative and creative programs, activity ideas and resources for Clubs and the youth they serve. Out of school learning environments provide unique opportunities to advance STEAM knowledge and increase interest in STEAM-related careers. Using a cross-disciplinary approach that channels young people’s natural curiosity into the design process inherent in the arts, BGCMCC’s STEAM programs empower youth to create new solutions to realworld challenges. This project-based approach develops critical thinking, problem-solving and other 21st-century skills critical to success in the STEAM workforce and beyond.

harles David Bakeman lost his battle with a lengthy illness Wednesday, September 14, 2022. He was born on March 18, 1934, in Taft, California. He was born to Andrew and Francis Bakeman. After graduating from Paso Robles High School, he attended Stanford

Howard. His early years were spent in Louisiana and Texas, and he graduated from Clint High School in Clint, Texas, in 1952. Joe received a bachelor’s degree in math in 1957 from Texas Western College, now UTEP. Joe worked his way through college doing a variety of jobs. He said that at the El Paso County Water & Sewer District, he learned which way is downhill. At El Paso Electric, he dug holes with jackhammers across mountains to bring light from Texas to New Mexico, according to him. At the Naval Ordinance Test Station, China Lake, Ca, he was hired in 1957 as a mathematician

in the Test Department Data Reduction Branch, eventually becoming the branch head. Joe married Ann Uehling in July 1962. Daughter Carrie was born in 1964, and son Glen in 1966. An avid golfer, Joe enjoyed playing at the China Lake Golf Course, where he had a hole-in-one on the 6th hole on June 22, 1972 (he would want you to know it was a five iron, 188 yards). Joe participated in years of Steve Lee’s Backyard Players Productions, known for his comic acting ability. After retirement in 1992, Joe and Ann spent years in Ann’s home state of Wisconsin, where Joe golfed, enjoying his own golf cart for

the first time. He volunteered at Marsh Haven Nature Center, was president of the Waupun Lions Club, Waupun, WI, and finance chairman of the Waupun United Methodist Church. In 2011, Joe and Ann returned to California to live in Paso Robles near family. On August 13, 2022, Joe passed away after an 18-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He is survived by his wife, Ann, daughter Carrie ( John) Park, son Glen (Cheryl) Dorgan, three sisters-in-law, one brother-in-law, five nephews, and two nieces and their families.

and great grandfather. At a young age, Ed began developing his love for trains and bowling. During his high school years, before heading to school, Ed delivered mail and would start a fire in the local train station to warm the building before it opened. After school, he sold tickets at the train station and then made his way to the bowling alley in the evenings to set pins. After graduating high school, Ed joined the Army. He was shipped overseas to aid in the clean-up of Europe toward the end of World War II. During this time, his sister Janet gifted him with a harmonica which he taught himself to play. Ed joined the Air Force branch of the military in 1947, just as it was created, specializing as a communications technician. While serving in Long Island, he met his wife Pat at a USO dance. The

two enjoyed dancing together throughout their 55 years of marriage. Ed finished his military career at Vandenberg Air Force Base after serving for 20 years, then moved his family to Santa Barbara, CA. He worked for the next 20 years for GTE. Ed didn’t wait until retirement to enjoy life. He was a member of multiple bowling leagues, traveled many miles on the Amtrak, was active in his children’s schools, and was involved with the Boy Scouts. He regularly visited with friends over a cup of coffee, often offering to pick up the tab. Ed enjoyed playing his harmonica at St William’s Catholic Church in the worship band and played at the weddings of all of his grandchildren. He’s most famous for his harmonica appearance with the magic piano at Chicago Union Station. Ed took great pride in the fact that

he built his own 7.5 gauge 060 steam engine. He was a member of the Goleta Valley Railroad Club and Bittercreek & Western. He took many trips with good friends to visit railroad clubs all over the U.S. His children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren enjoyed many rides over the years. Ed was always seen around town sporting his railroad hat and overalls. A true train buff. Ed is preceded in death by his parents Leighton and Emily Winnewisser, sister Janet, granddaughter Faron, and his wife, Pat. He is survived by his sister Joyce, his four children and their spouses, Karen (Randy), Ed (Sara), Steve ( Jennifer), and Mary (Hank), nine grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at St Williams Catholic Church, Atascadero, on September 26 at 12:00 pm.

University, majoring in Mechanical Engineering and playing center on their football team. He transferred to Cal Poly and graduated with a Mechanical Engineering Degree. He obtained his Masters Degree in Industrial Engineering at Purdue University. Charles joined the Army, where he and his family lived in Virginia, Georgia, Indiana, France, Germany, Kansas, and California. He also served his country in Greenland and in Vietnam and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel serving 20 years. He was too humble to boast about his medals. After retiring, he started a custom home business in California, where he built their dream

home. They later settled in Sun Lakes, Arizona, following several family members and lived there happily for over 35 years. He designed and built a second custom home on the golf course in the White Mountains. He was always working on a project to include building decks for family members, custom bookcases, a pool table, a playhouse for his grandchildren, picture frames showcasing his family a dark room, and countless others. He loved to travel the world with his wife, and spending summers golfing and fly fishing in the White Mountains. He is survived by his beloved wife,

Joan, sons Brent (Christie), Mark (Cindy), and daughter Julie (Lara) and Grandchildren, Lee, Melissa, Wendy, Amber, Laren, Cole and Taylor, and great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his father, Andrew Bakeman, mothers, June and Francis Bakeman, and brother Andy Bakeman. Even though he had an accomplished and rewarding career, Charles would say his greatest accomplishment was being a Husband, Dad, and devoted Grandfather. He had a witty sense of humor and was always ready for a celebration. He spent his last years golfing with great friends at Cottonwood and Ocotillo Golf Club.

The Mediterranean Diet: As Told by an Italian Man Living in California

ranean Diet is about improving your overall health. It is not by chance that the Mediterranean Diet is suggested by major universities and important medical institutions.

Michael Auriemma COMMENTARY

N

ever before has it been so important and crucial to us to keep in good health, to fight against unpredictable epidemics. The Mediterranean Diet is not just a way of eating or cooking; it is a combination of using a variety of high-quality fresh foods with balanced life habits. It is not a “don’t do it” diet but instead teaches how to buy and use local products, like veggies, fish, extra virgin olive oil, and red wine; all of which are integral components of the Mediterranean Diet. After 50 years of study, its proven benefits range from lowering the risk of obesity and fighting cardiovascular disease to relieving discomforts related to aging. The Mediter-

ook of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 5, verse 8 says: “If you see the oppression of the poor and the violent perversion of justice and righteousness … do not marvel at the matter; for high official watches over high official, and higher officials are over them.” That’s how it’s supposed to work and when it does, society tends to be orderly, justice is served and the people have confidence in the rulers set over them. In America, we’ve had an additional constitutional layer of protection against corruption in government for the protection of our rights, the liberty that provides for order and prosperity to a degree that is the envy of the world: we have a free and unfettered

Democrats of San Luis Obispo Club Make North County Endorsements Dear Editor, The Democrats of San Luis Obispo, a countywide club, announced their endorsed candidates for the November 2022 election.

The Italian Mediterranean Diet Pyramid: Not just a diet The discovery of the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet is attributed to the American scientist Ancel Keys of the University of Minnesota School of Power, which pointed out the correlation between cardiovascular disease and diet for the first time. The “Mediterranean Diet” is more than a diet; it’s a lifestyle that also encourages eating with friends and family, socializing over meals, mindfully eating your favorite foods, as well as mindful movement and exercise. The Mediterranean diet pyramid was developed based on the eating habits of long-living adults in the Mediterranean. It follows a general food pyramid guideline (not specific quantities) and encourages communal eating and an active lifestyle.

press. At least, we used to. For the most part at the national level and far too often at the local level, our press has become an adjunct of the federal government, compromised by incestuous professional relationships in the educational and social institutions in our national capital and the major institutions which establish policy in our society. As a result, “reporters” sound like parrots repeating the latest blast from official government sources, even using identical statements across the national networks when reporting stories, especially if the stories concern out-of-favor individuals or groups. Reporters fail to check sources or even question the information being spoonfed to them by government spokespersons. That is how the greatest scandal since Watergate was allowed to proliferate, warp our politics and divide Americans to a degree not seen since before the Civil War. The “Russia-collusion hoax” led to impeaching Trump twice, all based upon lies produced by third parties paid for by the Clin-

Threats to Liberty

ton campaign to taint Trump as seditious at best, treasonous at worst and contributed to his loss for re-election in 2020. It crippled his presidency and denied the American people the fulfillment of electoral promises made by their election of Trump in 2016. This is all a matter of public record via federal court proceedings. At the root of the Russian collusion hoax was a conspiracy between high-level officials within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and our national intelligence agencies to concoct a smear so scandalous that it warranted criminal investigation of the president and his associates. The national press once upon a time would have dug deep for sources and reliability of the reporting to independently verify the Russia hoax allegations. Unfortunately for America, the national media was so consumed by hatred of Trump that they were all too willing to accept any allegation, however outrageous as gospel truth if it besmirched Trump or his associates’ character. For two years, left-wing congressmen

dragged Trump appointees/ associates thru lengthy hearings demanding confession of criminal wrong-doing, protestations of innocence notwithstanding. One of the first victims of this hoax was the entrapment of Trump’s National Security Advisor, Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn by FBI agents conducting what Flynn thought was a casual conversation on his communications with Ukraine officials prior to taking office. All National Security advisors communicate with other national counterparts prior to assuming official office as part of their preparation for a job that doesn’t wait for you to get up to speed. The FBI charged Flynn with making false statements to the FBI over a trivial issue of context, bankrupted him, threatened his wife and son with prosecution if he didn’t admit guilt and destroyed his reputation after 30 years of exceptional service to the nation. That was only the beginning. For four years Trump’s presidency was subverted by federal agencies refusing to

traditional Italian cuisine requires the use of red wine as an accompaniment to succulent dishes based on game or pork, almost as if our Italian ancestors had discovered this scientific basis. Vegetables in the Mediterranean Diet Vegetables are an essential staple of the eating patterns of people in all the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, providing valuable nutrients and satiety. These benefits are amplified because the vegetables are normally cooked or drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and combined with pasta, rice or cereals such as farro and barley. About Michael Auriemma Michele (“mee-keh-leh” “mee-kay-lay”) or “Michael” is an Italian man who has traveled the world, is keen on food and wine, has learned from many different cultures, and now has settled in California. He holds a Master’s degree in chemistry, is a certified life coach, and has graduated in the culinary arts. An enthusiastic, skilled Italian cook, he

execute lawful orders, such as the Justice Department refusing to accept declassification orders for classified documents recently seized by the FBI’s raid on the former president’s home. Any president can take the highest level of classified information and read it in a press conference if he so chooses, which makes it instantly declassified, however imprudent or dangerous that might be. Both statute and Supreme Court case law has fixed this in concrete. The president is the boss and has final say over classification matters, period. Recent articles in the Wall Street Journal and other publications, along with an excellent article by Victor David Hansen of Stanford University (“FBI, R.I.P”) spelled out the rogue behavior of the FBI, its insubordination to the president, lying to congress, refusing orders of federal judges and covering up criminal activity by their agents. Another matter for concern is massive purchases of firearms, millions of rounds of ammunition and body armor by otherwise

bridge states: “Susan Funk has done an excellent job in Atascadero and has shown true leadership. For School Board, Trace Ellis-Weit as a teacher and Vy Pierce as an active and involved mother will bring a balance of voices to the board.” In Paso Robles, The Club endorsed incumbent Mayor Steve Martin. For Paso Robles Unified School District, Adelita Hiteschew, Sondra Williams, and Jim Cogan got the nod. Strobridge said: “All three candidates have children in the Paso Robles schools and

they want to see the Board focus on the best education for children rather than on a political agenda.” The Democrats of San Luis Obispo Club support endorsed candidates financially as well as with help in campaign activities.

non-law enforcement agencies, such as the Departments of Education, Agriculture and the Veterans Administration. Whom do they plan to make war against? The Justice Department and the FBI, along with other federal agencies with law enforcement authority, are operating without accountability to the American people and the rule of law. It’s time to create an agency superior to all others with federal law enforcement powers to “police the federal police” (FBI, IRS, EPA) with powers restricted to that function (no power to investigate civilians) to protect our liberties from arrogant, rogue and dangerous organizations that hold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in contempt. If a former President of the United States can be so abused, none of our liberties are safe.

That is why it is important that we vote for a candidate who believes in the fundamentals we all hold dear as a community. Take the time and go back and watch years past supervisor’s meetings where Bruce Gibson is rude and argumentative with not only the other supervisors but residents as well. That will show you all you need to know. Elizabeth Park Templeton

A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier's check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 to the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state, will be held by duly appointed trustee. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the accrued principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale. BENEFICIARY MAY BID LESS THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE. Trustor(s): JUDYA GIDDLE, A MARRIED WOMAN AS HER SOLE AND SEPARATE PROPERTY Recorded: 7/31/2007 as Instrument No. 2007052116 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of SAN LUIS OBISPO County, California; Date of Sale: 10/4/2022 at 11:00AM Place of Sale: In the breezeway adjacent to the County General Services Building, located at 1087 Santa Rosa Street San Luis Obispo, CA 93408 Amount of accrued balance and other charges: $236,134.92 The purported property address is: 10486 CUESTA COURT, ATASCADERO, CA 93422 Assessor's Parcel No. : 045361-005 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien.If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property.You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available

to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee's sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan. com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the trustee: CA-21896982-NJ. 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 916939-0772, or visit this internet website http://www.qualityloan.com, using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA21-896982-NJ 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. The undersigned trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the trustee is unable to convey title for any reason,the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the mortgagor, the mortgagee, or the mortgagee's attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right's against the real property only.

f you were in the Atascadero Lake Pavilion last Saturday night, you know it was an electric evening. Of course, I’m referring to the 11th Annual Atascadero’s Dancing with Our Stars. According to Jeannie Malik, producer along with Friends of the Atascadero Library, this year has been the most successful DWOS event since its inaugural debut in March of 2010, and the final numbers verify that. The silent auction alone raised $12,000. The Community Star dancers raised $189,000 from their votes, so the total amount raised in just those two areas was $201,000. That does not include dollars from ticket sales for the four dinner shows. The 2022 Grand Champion, Community Star Melinda Reed, who performed with professional dancer, Charlie Bradley, brought in 6,401 votes that translated to $65,579 in support of The Templeton Community Library

e don't have many mirrors in our home, for obvious reasons, but recently I saw a reflection of this stranger in the window of the hardware store. The grotesque figure had more hair growing out his nose than he did out the top of his head, and he did a combover with the hair growing out his ears. He had this shriveled, gnarled face with slits for eyes, sunken cheeks, his teeth were worn down to the gums, and his Adam's apple looked like he'd swallowed a softball. His image scared the bejeezus out of me, and he's following me everywhere I go! Who is this guy? He even follows me when I go on my daily walk. I used to be able to race up and down the hills where I live, but lately, I notice I have to stop often to catch my breath and let my burning thighs cool down. I think it's because

there's less oxygen in the air. Yeah, that's what it is. I wish those who are responsible for making the lettering on road signs so tiny would stop it. It's very dangerous and they need to go back to their original size. And why can't people stop whispering when they speak to me? I don't know why they're doing it. Are they worried about being overheard by the thoughtpolice who seem to be multiplying like rats lately? I've also noticed that food manufacturers are putting the lids on the jars of pickles that my wife likes on a lot tighter than they used to. I used to be able to impress her by opening every jar with an easy twist of the wrist but now that I have to use a pipe wrench, she's beginning to question my manliness. Someone messed up at the post office because I started getting the AARP Magazine and coupons for Depends®. And my phone rings off the hook from mortuaries and independent living facilities, whatever that is. I'm married and haven't lived independently for 49 years. Why start now? I wish clerks and servers in

Topping: 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1⁄4 cup packed brown sugar 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons cold butter 1⁄4 cup chopped pecans

Directions: In a large bowl, beat sugar, pumpkin, oil, eggs and water until blended. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; gradually beat into pumpkin mixture until blended. Stir in pecans. Pour into two greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. For topping, in a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at Rustic Pumpkin Bread 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes Ingredients: or until a toothpick inserted in 3 cups sugar center comes out clean. Cool for 1 can (15 oz) solid-pack pumpkin 10 minutes before removing from 1 cup canola oil pans to wire racks. For variety, consider adding fresh or thawed 4 large eggs frozen cranberries, pistachios, or 2/3 cup water miniature semisweet chocolate 3 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour chips. Cheers! 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt Barbie Butz is an independent 1teaspoon ground cinnamon columnist for The Atascadero News 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg and Paso Robles Press; you can email 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cloves her at bbutz1@outlook.com. 1⁄2 cup chopped pecans

restaurants would make up their minds. When I went into the drugstore to buy a box of cheap wine for my wife on Valentine's Day, the clerk asked to see my ID, while a restaurant tried desperately to give me a senior citizen's discount. I swore to them that I'm not eligible because I'm only ... holy cow, I'm 70 years old! When did that happen? Okay, I admit I'm wearing loafers now because I dislocated my back trying to bend over to tie my work boots. And I walk with a cane or walker these days, but who doesn't? I'll also reluctantly admit I watched a replay of last year's Super Bowl game, and not only was I not aware I'd already seen it, I also couldn't remember who won. I used to be able to sleep all night without getting up, but for some reason, now I have to get up several times to drain my radiator. Personally, I think it's because of all the preservatives they're putting in our food. And since when did a gallon of water start weighing eight pounds? The gallon jugs seem to be much heavier now, probably because of all the minerals and impurities in the water. That's my theory, anyway.

My 50th high school reunion got canceled due to COVID, but it's just as well. They had plans for a dance, a golf tournament, and a barbecue, but I don't know how to dance, broke four windows and wrenched my back the last time I played golf, and my doctor put me on a new diet: I can't eat anything that tastes good. Plus, I probably would have had to wear shorts to play golf, but the local community beautification committee asked me to NEVER wear them in public again because my white legs, knobby knees, and protruding varicose veins were scaring the tourists away. In the meantime, I'm haunted by that guy I saw in the reflection. I wish he'd quit following me because he's starting to really creep me out. Maybe it's some sort of atmospheric thing where I'm seeing apparitions or something. Anyway, I'm blaming global warming. Might as well, it seems to be responsible for everything else these days.

Events such as this require a strong leader, and Jeannie Malik proved her strength as she led a team of volunteers who were

ne of the abilities that a good leader must possess is to be able to solve problems that will surely arise when a large group of people live together. It is obvious that the children of Israel needed to eat in order to keep alive. The Lord had provided bread from heaven called “manna” (Exodus 16:1-35), but a problem arose which was caused by discontentment. People got upset and began to complain to Moses about the monotony of having only manna to eat. The lack of variety in their diet and the tedious repetition of only eating manna caused the people to become discontent and unthankful.This is a common problem that is caused by monotonous

routines. This is what happened to the children of Israel. Their complaining was sinful, and when the Lord heard it, He began to burn the outskirts of the camp with fire (Numbers 11:13). The people cried to Moses for help and relief. Moses again prayed to the Lord and the discipline was stopped.The Lord’s reaction to complaining reveals that it is a serious sin. However, this discipline didn’t hinder the people from continuing to complain. The people told Moses that they wanted more to eat than just manna. They wanted some meat to eat (Numbers 11:4-9).Their discontentment caused them to demand that God should provide what they craved. The people told Moses that they were better off when they were slaves in Egypt. This reveals that sinful discontentment can result in sinful lusts and words. How foolish to say that they were better off as slaves than freed servants of God. Being unthankful can cause a person to say foolish things. Moses

was overwhelmed and displeased with the complaining of the people (Numbers 11:10-15). The people began to weep and cry out to Moses. Moses took the problem to the Lord and admitted that he could do nothing to appease the people by acceding to their demand. The Lord’s anger was greatly aroused (Numbers 11:10). Moses was given help from the Lord to handle the burden of dealing with the people (Numbers 11:16-17). Seventy men were chosen to assist Moses in overseeing the needs of the people. The Lord then promised to provide meat for the people. Moses responded to God’s promise by saying it seemed to him that it was impossible to provide meat for so many people (Numbers 11:18-22). The Lord responded to Moses by saying He was certainly able to do what He promised (Numbers11:23).The Lord then did two supernatural things: 1) Caused the Holy Spirit to come upon the seventy men chosen to be leaders

so that they could effectively serve other people (Numbers 11:24-30); 2) Caused the quail to come into Israel’s camp so they could have meat to eat (Numbers 11:31-35). Then a very strange thing happened. While the people were eating the quail, God’s anger was displayed against them and He struck the people with a “very great plague.” The people’s lust and discontentment were judged by God. This was God’s solution to complaining: SEVERE DISCIPLINE. We can be CONTENT by Christ’s Power: Philippians 4:10-13. Lessons to be Learned 1. Being discontent and unthankful are sinful attitudes. 2. God’s power can enable people to be good leaders. 3. God answers the prayers of His needy and overwhelmed servants and uplifts them with endurance.

Enjoyable Activities for Seniors

Seniors with limited mobility can still enjoy a variety of activities STAFF REPORT

M

any older adults lose mobility due to conditions like stroke, severe arthritis, or injuries from falls. When that happens, activities and hobbies they used to enjoy might now be too difficult. However, the loss of mobility doesn’t mean the end of good times. There are many ways to have fun, boost mood, and stay engaged in the world without needing to move around too much. To help you find things that suit an older adult’s interests, here are nine wonderful activities for seniors with limited mobility. Nine great activities for seniors with limited mobility

1. Spend time reading Reading is a fantastic activity for older adults. It’s a fun way to spend time and keep the brain engaged. It can also improve memory, reduce stress, improve sleep, and delay cognitive decline. Whether an older adult likes reading physical books, or magazines, using an e-reader, or listening to audiobooks, one can immerse themselves in a welltold story, look at photographs, or learn about an interesting new topic. Organizing a book club among their friends is another way seniors enjoy reading and socializing. 2. Explore a variety of hobbies Hobbies are great for older adults with limited mobility. Activities that don’t require a lot of moving around include cooking, baking, birdwatching, knitting, crochet, indoor or container gardening, playing a musical instrument, or learning a language. This is also a perfect time to learn something new maybe there are hobbies or interests they’ve never had a chance to explore before. Learning is also a great way to keep the mind active and prevent boredom.

Getting in touch with ones creative side is another fun way for seniors to spend time. Drawing, coloring, painting, and sculpture are all wonderful ways to be creative. Fun projects might include creating scrapbooks, organizing family photo albums, or making a family recipe book. As a plus, being creative also comes with health benefits. Research has found creative activities can help people who are battling chronic illness to decrease negative emotions and increase positive ones, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve medical outcomes. 5. Spend time outdoors Getting outside to spend a little time in nature is relaxing and a great mood booster. Even if limited mobility means that an older adult can only get to the porch or sit next to a big window, getting some fresh air or viewing the scenery is a great everyday activity. 6. Have fun with happy visitors Asking family or friends with babies or friendly pets to stop by for a visit is another fantastic way to engage an older adult. Almost everyone perks up in the presence of young children. And playing with pets is another surefire way to bring cheer and reduce stress.

3. Exercise regularly Even if an older adult isn’t very mobile, there may still be exercises one can do to get the body moving. Whether sitting or standing, seniors can still get health and mood benefits, especially from seated exercises or chair yoga routines. 7. Play games! There are also exercise routines that can be done using a walker Games and puzzles are a for stability or focusing on the fantastic source of fun times. feet and ankles to reduce swellThere are so many to ing. choose from and most can be played in groups with visitors, 4. Get creative one-on-one for quality time

together, and solo. Try some classic games or card games, jigsaw puzzles, or crossword puzzles. 8. Enjoy movies, TV shows, or music Watching TV all day, every day isn’t a healthy pastime, but a movie or a couple of TV shows can be an enjoyable part of the day or week. Watching TV could even intersect with a hobby. For example, an older adult might be interested in watching a documentary on a topic they’re learning about. Or, channels like the Food Network or the Travel Channel could inspire new recipes to try or travel destinations to learn about. Listening (or singing along!) to music they enjoy is another great activity. Music has the power to reduce stress, anxiety, and pain. It also improves immune function and sleep as well as helping memory. 9. Participate in charitable works Even if an older adult isn’t very mobile or is homebound, they can still give back to the community. This is a wonderful way to stay engaged and feel a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Contact local charities, hospitals, or religious organizations to find out if they have any projects your older adult could contribute to. That could mean knitting or crocheting blankets or hats, creating no-sew blankets, or helping to assemble care packages. For more information or more tips on senior living, visit dailycaring.com.

said Oliver. Starting on Thursday, Sept. 15, contestants and fans of rodeo came out to the CCR arena. Over the weekend, people competed in events like team roping, breakaway, sort n rope, and the ever-favorite hide races. This year, Oliver and his team added a relay race to the lineup, which proved to be a popular event. A flyover opened the grand entry of the rodeo ceremonies in honor of the late Estrella

Warbirds aviator Sherman Smoot. While last year’s CCR was their best year to date, Oliver says this year matched if not surpassed last year’s participation in the stands and in the arena. “The beautiful part about this deal is the majority [contestants] are locals,” says Oliver of the hometown rodeo. Each year, locals look forward to trying their hand in the CCR arena, and this year was no different, but Oliver stresses the board’s main focus is the youth. This value prompted

ration, Homeless Services Oversight Committee, Library Board of Trustees and the Youth Commission. Prior to her run for City Council, Garcia was president of the Hispanic Community Foundation and eventually helped found the Hispanic Business Association in 2011. In 2017 she was nominated for Woman of the Year by the County of San Luis Obispo Commission on the Status of Women for her work in the Paso Robles community. Garcia also presented a Certificate of Recognition to the City of Paso Robles from the Mexican Consolate which commended the city for highlighting contributions made by the Latino and Mexican community and for enhancing a multi-cultural community. Later in the meeting, the council discussed and unanimously approved

Paso Robles City Mayor Steve Martin, and together, their sports segments grew into its own. “I worked many years ago with Wiemann at our local radio station,” Mayor Martin said. “More recently, he was a primary voice on my Internet radio station, VoiceOfPaso. com, as one of the announcers for Bearcat sports broadcasts. He was an enthusiastic supporter of local sports and worked diligently on the maintenance of the ball fields at Barney Schwartz Park. He will be missed.” The commentary segment was just the beginning of what would later be known as “The Voice of Paso” (VOP) in 2017, and is now known

fix to the situation and find keeping Diablo Canyon Power Plant in service is the necessary remedy while further research in renewable energy is completed. For instance, in a statement, Senator Dianne Feinstein says that “keeping Diablo Canyon open and producing carbon-free energy is more important” (Feinstein.Senate.gov). She adds, “California has some of the most ambitious clean-energy goals in the world, including decreasing carbon emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and achieving 100 percent clean electricity by 2045.” These goals will require energy alternatives to provide power continuously in addition to solar and wind. So the situation now, with no relief in the near future, deems to be a significant reason as to why it was decided

this rodeo has ever had.”

the 2020 Water System Master Plan. The Master Plan assesses the condition and capacity of the city’s water distribution infrastruction but does not evaluate the sufficiency of the city’s water supplies. The updated Master Plan recommends improvement of nearly five miles of mains and pipelines to meet existing demands and sustain fire flows for existing customers. The cost of the improvements is estimated to cost $12.1 million. Additionally, the plan estimates improvements to water mains and storage tanks to cost $17.1 million. According to the staff report, these projects will be funded by new development and connection fees. The staff report also recommended budgeting between $1.3 million and $2.6 million annually for rehabilitation and replacement of water distribution

as “805 Broadcasters.” Through VOP, Wiemann brought together coaches, student-athletes, and enthusiasts together over the airways as he announced play-by-play for the Bearcats’ games. The VOP team started traveling to away games and even covering some of the other schools in the area. But no matter where or what he was covering, Wiemann’s announcing was known for “drawing the picture” of the game for listeners. Even more so, he was known for his interviews with coaches and the athletes after the game. Eventually, the “Bearcat Locker Room” was born, a one-on-one interview with the athletes, and everyone wanted

to keep it open. Feinstein adds that “closing Diablo Canyon would remove 18,000 gigawatt-hours from the grid, nearly 10 percent of the state’s electricity generation. This is an extraordinary amount of power for a grid facing reliability concerns amid heat waves and wildfires.” However, energy experts and environmental groups have since expressed strong opposition in keeping the plant working. Their concerns are regarding nuclear waste and safety issues due to its proximity to seismic fault lines. In addition, they also say it could delay necessary investments in renewable energy. Yet, many are appeased with the power plant not retiring so soon. According to nonprofit news organization Cal Matters, Newsom says,

system assets, totaling $77.6 million over the next 30 years to address aging infrastructure. According to their report, of that amount, “approximately $60.3 million is recommended for pipeline rehabilitation and replacement, and $17.3 million for rehabilitation and replacement of pump stations, tanks, and wells. These estimated costs and guidelines for funding asset rehabilitation and replacement will be reflected in the City’s water utility rate study that is currently underway.” Councilman John Hamon requested to close the meeting in memory of locals and business owners Sherman Smoot and Aaron Hogue, who both died recently in seperate aviation accidents. The next City Council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 6:30 p.m.

to be a part of it. Wiemann was known for his ability to make the interviewee comfortable, in turn allowing them to open up and pull valuable information from them. He had the student-athletes feel seen and acknowledged in a way that no one else had been able to before. Friends of Wiemann’s thought his talent for broadcasting could have taken him to the big leagues — and he had the opportunity to. But Wiemann was happy at home, representing his fellow Bearcats and focusing on their talents. “He missed his calling as being one of the truly great broadcasters,” said Van Zandt. Wiemann was also an inte-

“Climate change is causing unprecedented stress on California’s energy system, and I appreciate the Legislature’s action to maintain energy reliability as the State accelerates the transition to clean energy” (CalMatters.org). In addition, he concludes, in agreement with Feinstein, that Diablo Canyon Power Plant is a “statewide reliability asset” beyond its complete initial retirement of 2025. The California Independent System Operator, which manages the state’s power grid, supported Newsom’s plea for the Diablo Canyon extension. “We are proud of the role Diablo Canyon plays in providing safe, reliable, low-cost and carbon-free energy to our customers and Californians,” according to Hosn.

gral part of Barney Schwartz Park, where there is a plaque that has his name engraved on it. He was a great broadcaster and athlete himself. “He made the day brighter,” said Van Zandt. “As far as broadcasting, once he turned that switch on ... you were mesmerized listening to it. And on a personal basis, he was so likable. I don’t think he could have any enemies ... he made people want to do better.” Wiemann’s sister, Catherine Wiemann Meress, wants people to remember how many student-athletes Wiemann mentored over his 30-year career, the kids he coached, his incredible talent for broadcasting, and the good man he was to all he came across.

She adds that they will do “their part to help the state achieve its energy reliability and decarbonization goals.” PG&E has to obtain the necessary U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licenses, as well as other required state regulatory approvals, to keep the power plant working in an efficient manner. While the reality seems to be that the power plant will stay open for at least eight more years, it is extremely clear that not all lawmakers and citizens are on the same side. Some people want it closed and for the state to focus on obtaining renewable energy, while many don’t see that as a possibility at this time. It is one of those arguments to agree to disagree on and hope that, in the end, it all works out for the benefit of our state and the environment.
