SLO County Supervisors Will Not Propose Charter Government

By CAMILLE DeVAUL camille@atascaderonews.com

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors met for a regular meeting on Tuesday, May 17. During this meeting, supervisors considered the adoption of a resolution that proposed putting County Charter on the ballot for the Nov. 8 election.

general law run county — as are the majority of counties in California. On Dec. 7, 2021, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to proceed with the process to have the board consider the adoption of a County Charter to be considered on the Nov. 8 election ballot. While general law counties mainly adhere to state laws as to the number and duties of elected officials, charter counties have a limited degree of “home rule” authority that may provide for the election, compensation, terms, removal, and salary of the governing board. The charter would not affect ruling over the sheriff ’s office. Current charter counties in California include Alameda, Butte, El Dorado, Fresno,

YOUTH ARTS

Norma Moye recognized by John Laird for her dedication to the organization for the past 30 years By CAMILLE DEVAUL camille@pasoroblespress.com

PASO ROBLES — Paso Robles Main Street Association’s Executive Director Norma Moye was honored recently by Senator John Laird, who represents District 17, to which San Luis Obispo County belongs. “I owe a lot of it to all my volunteers and my office help. There is no I in team. Believe me,” said Moye. Senator Laird awarded Moye with a certificate of recognition which read, “In recognition of your Paso Robles Main Street Association Executive Directorship 30th Anniversary. For 30 years serving the Paso Robles Main Street Association as its Executive Director leading the charge in Beautifying, Revitalizing, and Restoring the Downtown to make it the heart of the community. This has included annual festivals, installation of benches and bicycle racks, art wine barrels, and much more, earning Moye many awards such as the Great American Main Street Award and California Main Street District of the Year. Your Impressive Leadership is experience to this day, and many thanks belong to you. Congratulations and Best Wishes for your continued success.” “After getting the arch donated and then this presentation from the senator, I was actually speechless,” said Moye in response to receiving the recognition. “On behalf of my volunteers and my office people, I want to thank them for helping me get this honor. Without them, I wouldn’t have made it. And the merchants.” Earlier this year, Moye was honored with an archway, made by local artist Dale

Evers, on Pine Street marking the infamous Norma’s Alley — and home to the Main Street Association. Moye, a Paso Robles High alumna, essentially grew up in downtown Paso Robles. Her great-grandparents were vegetable truckers in Paso Robles, and her parents owned a cafe-restaurant on 12th Street. Later on, Moye owned a western store, Roundup Western, which had four locations throughout the county. Her western show even hosted a horseback fashion every year held at the fairgrounds. Her experience in Paso’s downtown is what inspired her to join the Main Street Association at its inception. “It’s always been home to me. I love all the merchants, and I love Paso Robles,” said Moye. Moye has been the creator of many of Paso Robles’s traditional events, including the annual Vine Street Victorian Showcase — which celebrated 35 years in 2021. “I hope people continue to volunteer for organizations because it is so important to know your community,” said Moye. “We have great people down here. Every one of them needs a pat on the back.”

Thrive Training Center Sends Gymnasts to State, Regional Championships Program has locations in both Atascadero and Paso Robles By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

NORTH COUNTY — Thrive Training Center sent multiple members of their gymnastic teams to both State and Regional Championships this year. “For an athlete to qualify for states, they must beat a set all-around score at one of the seasonal competitions,” said coach Cooper Bishop. “All of our girls qualified to states within their first meet of the year. A tribute to their hard work and preparation.” The State Championships were held on March 31, and Thrive sent nine of the center’s athletes to participate. To qualify for State Championships, all the girls needed a 34.5 AA. In addition, six of the girls competed for the first time. Coach Raleigh Carter provided the gymnast’s ranks from State. “Hannah Springer received the fifth-highest score in the Nation for her division on balance beam,” Carter said. “At State Championships for her level (Xcel Gold), she took second on bars, first on floor, first on beam, and first place in the all-around, making her state champion for her age division. “Tulsa Willoughby took second place for her age division at State Championships. “Liana Lopez took third place on floor for her age division at State Championships. “Ece Tunc took second on floor at State Championships for her age division. “Clara Wildmon took first on balance beam and second on bars for State Championships. “Gwen Henry took first on balance beam and bars, second on vault, and is second place all-around champion. “Paige Foss took first on balance beam, second on vault, and is third place all-around state Champion. “Scarlett Cruzat took second on Vault and third on beam at State Championships. “Charlee Cruzat took first on Vault and Bars, second on Floor Exercise, and she is first place

all-around State champion,” concluded Carter. Thrive Training Center has two locations, one in Paso Robles and the other in Atascadero. The girls use both facilities during the five-month gymnastics season and their year-round training as well. “We train using both of our facilities,” Bishop said. “Atascadero allows us to work on their routines and basics on the competitive apparatuses. Paso Robles allows us to push skill development with the use of trampolines and the foam pit.” Thrive Training Center, originally Pacific Coast Gymnastics, was bought by owner and president Anne Flores in 2006, while the rebranding to Thrive didn’t happen until 2015. The girls who train at Thrive put in 16 hours over a four-day week. “Coming out of the pandemic, we had to rebuild over 75 percent of the team program. This has been the most successful group of girls as a whole in our history of competing,” Carter said. “At first, we were nervous coming into the season, not knowing if we were going to be prepared. Competition season was from January through the end of March. We would have two, three weeks between competitions to train and make the necessary adjustments to optimize scores. The athletes are really great to work with; they are hard workers, focused, and know how

to persevere.” After doing so well at State Championships, two of Thrive’s girls went on to compete at the Regional 1 Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Regional Championships were held from April 29 to May 1 and included athletes from California, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona. Eva Jarboe and Liana Lopez, level 6 gymnasts at Thrive, both received qualifying scores at

State Championships, making them eligible to compete at the Regional Championships. Lopez tied for first place on the floor exercise and fourth place on vault. And Jarboe’s hard work and resilience got her all the way to the Regional Championships. “This has been an incredible year for us as a team. I look forward to what we can achieve in the future,” Bishop said.

Atascadero Elks Recognize Outstanding Citizens

The lodge held its awards night on April 21 By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — On April 21, Atascadero Elks Lodge #2733 held a celebratory dinner where the Elks awarded citizens, officers, volunteers, and members with awards. “These officers and volunteers, they don’t know that they’ve been chosen, so it’s a big surprise the night of the awards night,” said Exalted Ruler Susan Marple of the night’s festivities. “We also recognized our members for their years of membership with the lodge.” The Atascadero Elks recognized Rick Terra, who owns Terra Paints in Atascadero, as the Elks Outstanding Citizen of the Year. “He does so much for the community and helping organizations, and he’s always helped us when we’ve needed something, even at the last minute,” Marple said. “He will jump through hoops to help us with paints or improvement-type items. He’s very generous, so we thought he was most deserving.” Past Exalted Ruler Kevin Matherly was awarded Elks Volunteer of the Year. “Kevin will step up and help with anything,” added Marple. “Regardless of the task, you can call Kevin. He will help set the lodge; he’ll help barbecue; he’ll help you whenever you need help.”

Lodge Treasurer Kris Pimentel was awarded Elks Officer of the Year for her work over the past 12 months. “She is our lodge treasurer, and Elks have changed our accounting system, so we had to revamp the whole accounting system,” Marple said. “It’s computerized, and she was on it. She’s very knowledgeable; it took a lot of time and effort on her part. We thought she would be the most deserving of that award.” Linda Strickland was also acknowledged with

Paso Robles Area Historical Society Presents Yard Sale Fundraiser

Proceeds from the event will support the historical society and museum By CAMILLE DeVAUL

PASO ROBLES — The El Paso de Robles Historical Society (PRAHS) and Museum are hosting their bi-annual yard sale at Carnegie Library in Paso Robles City Park from Friday, May 20, through Saturday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Items at the yard sale are not priced, and instead, the historical society asks buyers to pick items and, if they are interested, to make a donation. All the proceeds go to support the Historical Society and Museum. The historical society is still

accepting donations to sell at the yard sale. For 36 years, PRAHS has preser ved, promoted, and encouraged the knowledge and awareness of local history through an extensive collection of photographs, documents, and newspapers and shares these collections through exhibits, research, and education. The membership and support of the PRAHS have grown to include local residents, businesses, people from across the United States, and internationally. Volunteers completely staff the Historical Society, and there is no paid staff. Funding is generated through donations, grants, and bequests. It is through the dedication of volunteers that have made all of this possible. Some volun-

teers assist by greeting visitors and answering questions about the exhibits, local history, shopping, restaurants, and wineries. Other volunteers work in the Research Library by cataloging, filing and researching, entering computer databases, assisting with financial records, and maintaining membership and volunteer records. Volunteering for the El Paso de Robles Area Historical Society is both fun and interesting. Stop by and talk to the volunteers, and you’ll be ready to sign up. The El Paso de Robles Area Historical Society and Museum are honored to be located in the historic Carnegie Library at the center of City Park. To learn more, visit pasorobleshistorymuseum.org.

Hands-Free Driving Violations One hundred eighty drivers were cited for hands-free cellphone violations during the distracted driving enforcement operation conducted during the month of April. California has had distracted driving laws on the books since 2008. Under current law, drivers are not allowed to hold their phone or other electronic device while driving. This includes talking, texting, or using an app. Using a handheld cellphone while driving is punishable by a fine. Violating the hands-free law for a second time within 36 months of a prior conviction for the same offense will result in a point being added to a driver’s record. If you have an important phone call or need to program directions, pull over to a safe parking spot. Before driving, either silence your phone or put it somewhere you can’t reach.

Support for the city’s spaceport designation is increasing STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — The City of Paso Robles is in the process of seeking a “spaceport” designation for the municipal airport, and the concept is getting support from Cal Poly and technology companies. After presenting the Paso Robles Air and Spaceport concept at Cal Poly’s CubeSat Developers Conference, the city signed two letters of intent to partner in support of spaceport activities — from Cal Poly and Stellar Explorations. The Paso Robles Air and Spaceport project was presented at the CubeSat Developers Workshop conference on April 27 in collaboration with students and university staff from Cal Poly’s DxHub. The presentation was well-received, resulting in a number of business contacts

Attendees at the conference come from a wide variety of space technology companies, including satellite designers and manufacturers, launch platforms, command and control systems, and cyber security. President Armstrong of Cal Poly and Mayor Martin officially signed a Letter of Intent during the conference held at Cal

Poly’s Performing Arts Center. Cal Poly has expressed interest in providing educational opportunities at the proposed Paso Robles Spaceport. The partnership presents Cal Poly “learn by doing” opportunities in Aeronautics and Space Technologies to support its educational mission. Dr. Tomas Svitek, president of Stellar Explorations, and Martin officially signed a letter of intent for future collaboration related

miniaturized aerospace solutions for military, civil and commercial customers, including the propulsion system for NASA’s upcoming CAPSTONE project headed to the moon.

The development of the spaceport would be through a license from the Federal Aviation Administration rather than any new construction or infrastructure.

STATE GOVERNMENT

California Introduces Laws To Fund Abortions For Out-of-State Individuals Announcement followed the leak on May 2 of potential ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 landmark ruling, Roe vs Wade By MICHEAL ROBISON Guest Journalist

CALIFORNIA — Senate Bill 1142, introduced in March, is positioned as a response to the potential ruling by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which guaranteed nationwide access to safe and legal abortions. The bill states, “If the United States Supreme Court overturns the protections under Roe v. Wade, people in over one-half of the states in the country, over 36,000,000 women and other people who may become pregnant, will lose access to abortion care.” The bill is, as stated, focused on “building upon existing protections to the right to abortion and implementing innovative and bold programs and policies to truly be a reproductive freedom state.” The bill goes beyond simply providing long-term legal access to abortion services in California. The bill moves to provide funding

for those individuals who are not residents but are seeking abortion services from local providers. According to the bill, “For decades, abortion funds, abortion providers, and other community-based organizations have provided direct and indirect support to callers and patients with logistical and practical support needs. These funds assist patients seeking abortion services within California, patients traveling to California, and when patients need to travel outside of California for care.” However, the bill works to provide financial support for more than just the abortion procedure. In the bill, there is a provision for “practical support services, such as airfare, lodging, ground transportation, gas money, meals, dependent childcare, doula support, and translation services, to help a person access and obtain an abortion.” The financing of the services is done through a special financial fund set up in the bill called “The Abortion Practical Support Fund.” The state funds in this initiative are administered by the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, which will determine who receives the benefits. The recipients of those funds will be

organizations such as Planned Parenthood and other abortion service providers in the state. Those recipients may then utilize the funds to provide abortion services and related care to individuals who travel to California to obtain an abortion. The fund is also available to cover training costs for volunteers, administrative staff, and research costs associated with providing abortion services. SB 1142 also directs the creation of an “Abortion Information Webpage.” The site will provide comprehensive information regarding access to abortion services in California, to provide patients a single place to connect with the nearest and most accessible provider, obtain coverage or financial support for care, and get logistical assistance and resources for travel, lodging, or other related needs. Following the leak on May 2 of the potential ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 landmark ruling, Roe vs. Wade, Governor Gavin Newsom vowed to make California a haven for abortion rights. In a post on Twitter, he said he would “fight like hell” to protect reproductive rights within the state. State Senator Melissa Melendez, who

represents California’s 28th district, explained there is a “one hundred percent” chance that this legislation will be passed. “I am not in favor of that, as you can imagine,” she said. “I think it’s completely insane to suggest that taxpayers should pay for that sort of thing, but that’s what they’re planning on doing.” Moreover, Melendez claims that there’s no specific plan to provide funding for or implement the legislation. “In the health committee, where I heard this bill a few weeks ago, I asked them several questions about how this is going to work, none of which they can answer,” she said. “So they don’t even know how it’s going to work. They just want to hurry up and state that they were going to do this and pay for women’s abortions, even though they have no idea how they’re going to do it other than taxpayers are going to pay for it.” Aside from the committee’s indication that “private donations” would fund abortions for women who visit California from out-ofstate, Melendez said, “It was just a big mess. I was completely dissatisfied with [the committee] being completely unprepared to answer basic questions about the legislation.” Originally published May 3 on timcast.com.

Skin Cancer Awareness Month: Let’s Talk Risk Factors, Symptoms, and Support

CANDICE SANDERS Executive Director

Cancer Support Community Central Coast Did you know that May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month? Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States and is also one of the most preventable cancers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It often begins as an unusual, uncontrolled growth on the skin. Anyone can get skin cancer, but it is more common among people with light or fair skin color. Specific risk factors depend on the type of skin cancer. The most common risk factors include: • Exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet radiation from tanning booths • Frequent blistering sunburns, especially early in life • Having 50 or more moles • A personal history of skin cancer • Possible genetic factors (such as family history or mutations in certain genes) • History of radiation therapy • Exposure to high levels of arsenic With summer just around the corner, your risk of developing skin cancer becomes even higher. While it may be tempting to spend more hours out in the sun, be sure to take necessary measures to protect yourself from harmful rays. Here are five ways you can protect your skin from the sun this summer. Seek Shade The sun’s rays are strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you like being outdoors during those hours, find a place out of the sun, like beneath a tree or even a beach umbrella, to protect yourself from the direct sunlight. Cover Up Find clothing that covers up the most sensitive skin areas, like your chest and shoulders. Be sure to include lightweight longsleeved shirts, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses in your summer wardrobe. Wear SPF 15+ or higher Apply sunscreen of an SPF

of 15 or higher every day, even if you aren’t going outside often. For days with prolonged outdoor activity, use an SPF of 30 or higher and re-apply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating. Don’t forget important areas like the backs of your hands and tops of your feet, and wear lip balm that has an SPF as well. Avoid Tanning Beds Indoor tanning can be just as dangerous as tanning in the sun. Tanning beds expose your skin to ultraviolet light that can lead to skin cancer and premature aging. Additionally, people who go to tanning beds at a younger age have a higher chance of developing melanoma. If your summer goal is to look tan, consider safer alternatives like self-tanning products or spray tans. Self-Examine Once a month, perform a head-to-toe self-examination of your skin to look for any changes. By doing this regularly, you will be able to familiarize yourself with what is and is not normal for your skin and track any marks of concern. Talk with your healthcare provider if you notice changes or anything unusual on your skin or if you have a sore or patch of skin that won’t heal. Follow the ABCDEs of skin cancer as a guide: • Asymmetry: The shape of one half of the mole does not match the other half. • Border: The edges are often ragged, blurred, or irregular in outline. • Color: The color is uneven. Shades of black, brown, and tan may be present. Areas of white, grey, red, pink, or blue also may be visible. • Diameter: There is a change in size—usually an increase. • Evolving: Changes in size, shape, color, or elevation, or any symptoms such as bleeding, itching, or crusting. If you are living with skin cancer or are a caregiver to someone with skin cancer, the Cancer Support Community offers a variety of resources to help ease the burden of your journey. Please contact us at (805)238-4411 or visit our website at cscslo.org or stop by our office located at 1051 Las Tablas Road in Templeton for more information.

30 Pallet Shelter Villages Now in California

CONNIE PILLSBURY COMMENTARY

An Encouraging Project Answering the Question ‘Homelessness, What is anyone doing about this problem?’

I

f you’re like me, when you see the homeless on our downtown streets, you ask yourselves, “Why?” What brought us to this point, that we have an epidemic of homelessness in California, numbering over 150,000. The next question that follows automatically is, “What is anyone doing about this problem?” Answering the “why” is a tough call. Those who walk the streets carrying a few meager belongings were mostly raised in America, went to school, were part of some type of family unit at one point, and possibly served in the mili-

AL FONZI

COMMENTARY

I

find myself yearning for years past when waking to the sound of morning doves and other birds happily chirping signaled the beginning of a new and brighter day. Unfortunately, this is not to be as the president is taking the first steps down a dark road to tyranny. It seems that Biden and crew’s contempt for America and its core principles has no bounds with a continuing assault upon our liberties, prosperity, and intelligence. That latest assault is the creation of a federal government Bureau of Disinformation within the Department of Homeland Security. The latter is an amalgamation of multiple federal agencies with a nexus

tary. But this group, for whatever reason, did not survive their childhood, the school system, or their nuclear family. As fellow human travelers, we realize each one could be a brother, a cousin, or even us! “There but by the grace of God go I,” we think as we try to process their predicament. There is, granted, a high incidence of addiction and mental illness among the homeless, resulting in our streets taking on the role of former ‘mental health’ facilities that ceased to exist in California after deinstitutionalization began 50 years ago. A legislative act in 1967 ended the practice of institutionalizing patients against their will, hoping that community treatment facilities would fill in the gap. That didn’t happen, and instead, this compromised group ended up on the streets. Therefore, the answer to “What is anyone doing about this problem?” becomes complicated because if asked, many of the homeless don’t want to change their lifestyle. For sure, they do not want to be moved to any kind of a restrictive environment. There is a ‘camp’ camaraderie among them, with ‘friends’ throughout the city, connections to benevolent suppli-

upon law enforcement or emergency response into a single, massive bureaucracy. When it was created, many of us were skeptical that it would improve inefficiencies that led to the 9/11 intelligence failure or improve federal response to disasters. Hurricane Katrina exposed the fallacy of the latter with a massive federal failure in the response to the New Orleans disaster. Years of expertise gained in federal disaster response was swept aside by a bureaucracy enamored with its own hubris, resulting in inexcusable delays in aid to disaster victims while President Bush expressed praise for “doing a heck of a (good) job.” We weren’t supposed to believe our eyes of victims pleading for help as federal aid arrived at glacial speed. We were also assured that the new Department of Homeland Security posed no threat to the civil liberties of American citizens. Our fears were warranted as intelligence, and federal law enforcement officials grossly violated civil liberties of American citi-

ers of food and shelter, and favorite resting spots. Seeking solutions that have worked, I became interested in the Pallet Shelter Villages, communities of individual sleeping shelters. Pallet recognized that there is a true homelessness crisis and worked to find a prompt and affordable solution, with units designed by those who had experienced homelessness. Pallet’s motto is, “No one should go unsheltered when shelter can be built in a day. Shelter villages combine the dignity of personal space with the healing of community.” (palletshelter.com) Pallet Shelter calls itself a “social purpose company” located in Everett, Washington. Their tiny sleeping cabins were originally designed as a rapid-response shelter village for survivors of Hurricane Katrina. It was soon discovered that these structures could serve the homeless community within a reasonable budget and minimal earthmoving and infrastructure requirements. The individual 8 x 8 ft tiny shelters are built of easily transportable durable panels, stacked on pallets (thus the name) with an attached foundation that can be shipped anywhere in the coun-

try and installed in one day. Each structure, made of aluminum and composite materials, is equipped with two beds, windows, lighting, electricity, heating, bedding, and toiletries. A Pallet private sleeping cabin with lockable doors costs under $10,000 each. This provides individual privacy and safety, near centralized resources of restrooms, laundry, and kitchen. The shelters are placed side-by-side, with a lined walking path to the restrooms and kitchen, giving residents the ability to visit and share time together. This makes it attractive to those who have become accustomed to a sense of ‘community’ experienced in homeless settings. The goal of the village is to help people transition to permanent housing. By providing an ‘address,’ and on-site medical and behavioral health case managers, the first step is to retrieve the person’s identity: Social Security numbers, identification cards, education/employment history, and Veteran records. Pallet states, “When someone had a bed and safe space to sleep, it allows them to recharge, reflect and heal. One cannot start to improve their circumstance without having their basic needs met.” (palletshel-

Biden’s New Dark Road zens, clearly violating laws and regulations but seemingly without consequences. Federal courts responsible for protecting our civil liberties failed us dismally. Fast forward 20 plus years after 9/11, and now the Biden administration has created, without congressional assent, a new bureaucracy to determine what speech is “disinformation” and what speech is acceptable. The First Amendment to the Constitution emphatically states that “Congress shall make no law abridging freedom of speech…” except Congress didn’t pass any such law. This is being done by executive fiat, just as President Wilson, an early Progressive Democrat, did a hundred years ago. In Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism” (2007), he revealed Wilson’s contempt for the Declaration of Independence, the inalienable rights of individuals, and his worship of the “State.” Wilson was a racist: he segregated the federal civil service and established a nationwide network of informers during

WWI to report on citizens making statements considered to be disloyal to the government. Disloyal speech was deemed to be anything critical of Wilson or his administration’s policies during the war. Those accused found themselves isolated and quickly sentenced to prison; one victim was given a 10-year prison sentence for making critical statements of Wilson from his own living room, duly reported by a neighbor (informant). He wasn’t released until Wilson left office years later. Wilson’s policies were much admired by the Italian Fascist dictator Mussolini and Germany’s Hitler, both adopting many of Wilson’s policies into their fascist regimes. Fast forward to 21st century America and we find Biden’s new “ministry of truth” is to be headed by a hyper-partisan leftist demagogue steeped in conspiracy theories. We live in an era when a younger generation is taught to believe that “free speech” is code for hate speech and must be suppressed, and the Bill of Rights and other founding documents

ter.com) One successful example of a Pallet village is at the Veterans Administration property in West Los Angeles. With a $250,000 contribution from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the village started in November 2021 with 28 individual shelters, with nearby restrooms and showers and access to medical and behavioral health services. Today there are 110 shelters and two larger 800 sq. ft. community rooms used as dining halls. The average stay is 30 days. The good news is that of 507 veterans who have participated in the VA Pallet Shelter project, 40 percent have moved into transitional housing, and 25 percent are now in permanent housing. The website states that they plan to build more than 1,200 units of supportive housing within 10 years.

This is encouraging. Each village is built and supported with city funds, federal funding, or private donations. According to a Pallet spokesman, it’s the on-site health and behavioral services provided by the local city that is critical. There are 30 villages now in California, with 81 nationally. The nearest shelter community is a 20-unit shelter community in Lompoc. There’s a glimmer of hope from the Pallet Village project as they see a positive response from the homeless community and successful outcomes in aligning people into permanent housing. It’s an encouraging answer to our question, “What is anyone doing about this problem?” Connie Pillsbury is an independent opinion columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email her at conniepillsbury22@gmail.com.

are outdated if not outright racist. My generation fought to protect individual rights, especially free speech and freedom of conscience, as the bedrock of a free and democratic Republic. Only with open dialogue and uninhibited speech with the government kept on a tight leash could the rights of individuals be protected. Those most protected are minorities of every stripe as they were the most vulnerable to the oppression of the majority. Somewhere along the way protection of minority rights via robust defense of the First Amendment has been lost, often under the rubric of establishing new categories of protected classes of people for which any criticism was considered hate speech or even in the same legal category as an actual physical assault. Those not in compliance with approved “group think” risk imprisonment, loss of occupation, property, and ultimately, even custody of their children to the state. This is how freedom of speech has been lost in many European countries, even

Canada and Australia today, where religious speech, belief, and doctrine expressed from a pulpit may be considered a prosecutable crime. A country where freedom of conscience cannot be expressed is no longer a free country, and once lost is never regained. Biden’s new Disinformation Bureau is hiding behind the fear of foreign interference with American political life. We’ve survived 245 years through multiple wars, economic crisis and faced down existential threats to the survival of the nation without surrendering our most fundamental rights as a free people. We don’t need Biden’s Disinformation Bureau as much as we need an abundance of unfettered speech, a free exchange of ideas between a well-informed citizenry, and fewer thin-skinned politicians afraid of the people they serve.

Kevin McCarthy: Should a Proven Liar Become Speaker?

TOM ELIAS

P

COMMENTARY

ossibly the most common jury instruction in courtrooms across America goes basically like this (specific language may vary a little): “If you catch a witness lying about anything, you can assume they are lying about everything else they said.” But both in California and in Congress, Republicans en masse are apparently ignoring that edict, offering standing ovations to Kevin McCarthy, the Bakersfield congressman and Republican leader in the House of Representatives who desperately

wants to become speaker of the House. That would put him just behind the vice president in the presidential succession ranks if his party gets the mid-term election victory it expects this fall. It was well known before this spring that McCarthy was a sycophantic minion of ex-President Donald Trump, aping his line and approach to almost everything. Publicly behaving in any other way would get him ousted by rank-and-file GOP members of Congress who vie eagerly for Trump endorsements whenever they run for office. To them, it doesn’t matter that Trump is a known liar, like many presidents before him, or that Trump took lying to flagrant new depths with his post-election-ouster claims of fraud and his administration’s open embrace of the concept of “alternative facts.” Long-

time Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway generally gets “credit” for inventing the term and embracing it as an explanation for the frequent blatant, provable lies purveyed by Trump and his aides. The Washington Post once calculated there were an average of 22 of those on each day of Trump’s first three years in the White House. But no one has ever been elected speaker by his or her House colleagues after becoming involved in a provable lie about anything politically significant. That’s in the 235-year history of this republic. Here’s the detail on McCarthy’s biggest known lie. After the New York Times reported in April that he told fellow House Republicans Trump should resign for encouraging the Jan. 6, 2020 insurrection that caused them all to hide in Capitol building nooks as they fled for their lives, McCarthy

denied ever saying that. “Totally false,” he declared. But an audiotape soon emerged, provided by the Times and played on the MSNBC cable network, proving McCarthy indeed suggested Trump get out. McCarthy said that in the belief Trump was political toast, and that his own ambition would best be served by jumping that ship. But Trump remains almost as firmly in control of the GOP today as when he was president. So McCarthy pretends he never said what he actually did say. He and Trump then made peace. This dizzying sequence caused Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, herself long a presidential hopeful, to label McCarthy a “liar” and a “traitor.” McCarthy’s turnabout on Jan. 6 probably does not make him a traitor, but he is certainly a

liar, and if he goes on to become speaker, he will be the first selected for that post after a U.S. senator called him traitorous. So far, McCarthy has not so much as threatened a libel lawsuit over Warren’s slur. Strikingly, McCarthy’s proven lie did not visibly lose him much Republican congressional support or even much backing among California Republicans. The party’s state chair, Jessica Millan Patterson, participated in a standing ovation for McCarthy at the California GOP’s springtime convention the day after the tape surfaced proving him a liar. He ignored the matter in his keynote speech – yes, Patterson allowed him to keep the keynote slot despite his new status as a prominent prevaricator. Among Republicans, only a few dissidents expressed disapproval. Some rank-and-file conven-

tion delegates pronounced the tape a fake, but not McCarthy. And one major Trump contributor told a reporter that “MAGA-land is enraged… they’re going to play nice through the election, but Kevin McCarthy is not going to be speaker of the House if the Republicans win it back.” If that’s true, and McCarthy does not succeed California Democrat Nancy Pelosi as speaker, it will deprive California of becoming the first state with two consecutive House speakers. But it would also show that the standard legal admonition on lies and liars is not lightly ignored and that no documented liar will soon get America’s No. 3 political job.

I

grew up in the garden, so I’m the perfect authority to help you grow your own “survival food” that experts tell us we’re gonna need because of the upcoming “Putin food shortage.” Unless you’re planning an indoor garden, the first thing you’re gonna need is something to till your soil. My go-to piece of equipment has always been the roto-tiller. As a kid, I spent hundreds of hours behind our Craftsman roto-tiller. Based on a quick look on the Internet, Craftsman roto-tillers at Lowe’s start at $229 all the way up to $899, but they look like toys compared to the roto-tillers I used. They have that “made in China” look to them, too, so you might want to explore other options. Just a quick piece of advice: I got in hot water whenever I roto-tillered on windy days when my mom put the newly washed clothes on the clothes-

line. The “clean clothes” came out a little gritty, and the sheets were coffee-colored. So it’s important to coordinate schedules with the washer-woman or washer-man. (For any youngsters less than 40, a clothesline is several strands of rope or wire strung between two posts that we hung our clothes on to dry them. I’m told clotheslines still exist in more primitive societies.) If you’re planning a huge garden, you’ll want something more substantial than a roto-tiller. Looking through farm papers, I see where you can buy a red, blue, yellow, or green tractor for between $500 up to $500,000. Personally, I like the look of the used Big Bud® tractor I saw for $300,000, which was built in 1982 in Havre, Montana. It has 760 horsepower produced by 16 pistons and has tires bigger than our first home. The only drawback I can see is that it has a 1,000-gallon fuel tank which would currently cost over $6,000 to fill up based on the price of diesel in my part of the world. After you have tilled your soil, you’re going to want to lay out your garden, which will consist of several semi-straight

rows and mounds. You’ll have a tendency to want to plant a big garden but just keep in mind this snippet of sage advice: NEVER plant more than your spouse can weed. Your next decision will be if you want to plant seeds or transplants. Seeds are much cheaper, which might be a big consideration if you blow all your dough on the Big Bud®. You’ll want to plant your green beans, corn, cabbage, carrots, beets, and lettuce in the rows. The vegetables that you’ll grow the best will be the ones you don’t like to eat, like lima beans, but it’s still obligatory that every garden must have beets, Brussel sprouts, radishes, and carrots. These will all end up being eaten by your livestock. There used to be a contest for the gardener who could grow the most disgusting carrot that looked most like, well, you know, but I don’t think they have the contest anymore because it’s sexist and not “woke.” Whatever that means. For any urbanites new to gardening, you should know that there are no such things as bacon, steak, or French fry seeds. Although French fries do come from potatoes, I’ve never been

able to successfully grow them, although I could grow fabulous yams, the most disgusting thing I’ve ever put in my mouth, other than the snail my brother dared me to eat. If you insist on growing your own French fries, it will probably necessitate you relocating to Idaho. This is also true of growing hot peppers, which my wife has the hots for, but I have found they don’t achieve their full degree of hotness anywhere but Hatch, New Mexico, the capital of HOT. On the mounds, you should plant your pumpkins and an assortment of squash. This will present your hardest challenge yet in growing a garden: getting rid of the squash. Be on the lookout for any vehicle that is not locked as a potential zucchini recipient. If you follow my advice, you may have enough survival food, but by the time you pay for the Big Bud tractor, fertilizer, water, and labor, you’ll have invested $5,000 per ear of wormy corn, overripe zucchini, perverted carrot, and squishy tomato.

I made the last time I prepared it. I have shared this recipe with you before, but I’m sharing it again along with those changes. This is the recipe exactly as I found it in my 1989 Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. However, I leave out the green pepper and the hard-cooked eggs since my husband does not like them in potato salad. He loved the new additions and suggested I keep them in the recipe.

Moses knew by experience that God’s power and deliverance are received thru prayer. In this particular battle, Moses’ hands needed to be constantly lifted up in order for the Amalekites to be defeated. Constant prayer was needed in order to gain the victory. Two men named Aaron and Hur, observed what was necessary for Israel to win the battle. Each man held up Moses’ arms and hands, one on one side and one on the other, until sunset, resulting in Israel winning the battle (Exodus 17:19-13). Moses then built an altar to worship the Lord with an offering and sacrifice and named it “The lord is my Banner.” Moses knew that it was the Lord that gave Israel the victory in answer to his prayer (Exodus7:14-16).

I believe that Moses set us an example as a man of prayer. God accomplished many things in Moses’ life in answer to prayer. The Lord delights in answering the prayers of people who depend on Him: Psalm 34:1517. Lessons to be Learned: 1. Believers will experience many different spiritual battles in their lives: Ephesians 6:10-12. 2. Believers can secure God’s aid in their battles thru prayer: Ephesians 6:18. 3. Believers will always be victorious when they trust and depend on God thru prayer: Romans 8:35-39; James 4:7.

Taste of Paso’s A

By MIRA HONEYCUTT

sudden burst of wind followed by a downpour of rain failed to dampen the spirits of attendees. Instead, they kicked up their boots to Mother Corn Shuckers band and savored fried chicken dinner and a variety of wines from some 20 participating wineries. The event was Taste of the Back Roads which brought together over 200 oenophiles at Cass Winery’s Barrel Room. While shining a spotlight on the Back Roads Wineries group, the event was a fundraiser for Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation (PRYAF) and raised over $11,000 from live and silent auction lots that ranged from library wines to lifestyle packages. The Back Roads Wineries of Paso Robles is a collective of 30 boutique wineries tucked along the winding country roads south of Hwy 46 East and east of Hwy 101. This includes a group of wineries lined along the Union Road wine trail and the Creston corridor. Wineries from this enclave of Paso are a good representation of the region’s diversity as they cover four Paso sub-appellations — Geneseo, El Pomar, Creston and Templeton districts. And it’s this mélange that guests savored at the grand tasting, a spectrum of flavors ranging from Italian and Spanish style wines to Bordeaux and Rhône blends. People holding the Reserve VIP pre-tasting tickets got a head start with an early entry to Cass’s terrace lined with tasting tables before the weather caused everyone to swiftly drag the tables under the sheltering roof. Despite the misty haze, the terrace offered a sweeping view of vineyards and the newly constructed eight-unit luxury bed and breakfast Geneseo Inn repurposed from shipping containers. The pre-dinner reception offered small gourmet bites prepared by each winery’s chef/ owner and paired with their Reserve wines. Some offered barrel samples. There was the 2014 Library Select Soul Shaker from Ascension Cellars — the deep-hued cabernet sauvignon/syrah blend supported by merlot and petit verdot. I discovered that Erick Allen, co-founder of Ascension Cellars, was not only a star winemaker but an accomplished chef as was evident from his baked spanakopita, a delicious Greek specialty. The rich buttery/cheesy mouthfeel of the appetizer was a good match with the lush and flamboyant Soul Shaker. Cass Winery’s 2018 Rockin’ TED was a power-packed blend of cabernet sauvignon, mourvèdre and petit verdot, a good match with chef “Charlie” Charles Paladin Wayne’s grilled lamb bites. Over at Steinbeck Vineyards & Winery, winemaker Bryan Widstrand proudly announced: “This venison is from our property.” He suggested the venison sausage with the ripe and luscious 2016 cabernet sauvignon

and the grilled shrimp with the 2018 viognier. Widstrand also had a surprise offering, a non-vintage sparkling wine produced in the Méthode Champenoise style. “We produced only 100 cases of it,” he said of the new addition to the Steinbeck portfolio. More bubbly was found at Rava Wines, known for its distinctive sparkling wines also produced in the Méthode Champenoise style. Nathaly Blais offered Rava’s signature non-vintage Brut, a 100 percent chardonnay that soars with the first sip showing bright acidity and ends with a toasty finish. In addition to sparkling wines, Rava Wines produces stellar still wines, two of which were

featured at this tasting: a full-bodied 2017 Estate cabernet sauvignon and the supple and silky 2016 Brophy Clark pinot noir. At the Rasmussen Wine table, Niles and Wendy Rasmussen served the 2021 viognier with basil-wrapped goat cheese and the 2018 barrel sample of cabernet sauvignon, with an assemblage of smoked gouda atop olive oil-soaked bread squares. There were stuffed mushrooms to go with Demeter Family’s 2018 barrel sample of sangiovese and Bella Luna’s 2018 nebbiolo paired with sweet Tuscan truffles. Then at Barr Estate’s table, mini wraps of prosciutto and provolone held forth with

wines ranging from albariño, malbec and tannat to the deep-hued ‘6950,’ a late harvest petite sirah. What does your appetizer pair with, I asked? “It goes with everything,” answered Greg Barr. Caelesta Vineyard & Truffière (truffle producing farm) is a new entry to Paso serving their wines in the contemporary style tasting room in downtown. The winery was represented by general manager Britta Ray who offered a trio of delicious wines crafted by winemaker Brian Farrell, Jr., produced from his family’s Templeton Gap vineyards. The 2020 White, an aromatic blend of chardonnay and viognier was bursting with melon notes. The well knit, velvety 2018 GSM rocked with pomegranate and spice and the 2018 cabernet sauvignon/ petite sirah blend expressive of cardamom and ripe cherries. To pair with the wines, Caelesta’s black truffles were featured on Etto trombe pasta in cream sauce, whipped up by budding chef Ray. Caelesta‘s ten-acre truffle farm is planted with 2,200 oak trees that were inoculated with spores of Tuber melanosporum, known as the Perigord black truffle. The Farrell family organizes seasonal truffle hunt adventures led by Lolo the truffle dog and his guide. Caelesta is the only truffière in Paso and second in California harvesting truffles from its ranch. On this chilly evening, Bovino Vineyards’ corn chowder was a welcome sight, paired with the barrel sample of 2020 GSM (grenache, syrah, mourvedre) from its Joludi portfolio of wines. At Defiance Vineyard table, I savored a bold and sassy 2017 petite sirah. “We are grape growers but started making wine during Covid,” stated Erin Faulkner, estate’s vineyard manager. The Faulkner family planted 50 acres of vineyards in 2013 along the Creston Valley hillside, with the sole purpose of selling grapes to local winemakers. The lockdown, however, provided an impetus to go into producing their own wine Defiance and hired Adam Lazarre as winemaker for their small 800 annual-case production. It’s small producers like Defiance and other family-owned wineries that make up the Back Roads group, a brainchild of Steve Cass, founder of Cass Vineyard. “We started 15 years ago when there were about 12 tasting rooms, half of which have subsequently closed,” said Cass. “Since we are all small production, with small marketing budgets, we thought it a good idea to combine efforts.” So, events such as the Taste of the Back Roads give these small producers a presence to showcase their handcrafted artisan wines. Savor the above and hundreds of other local wines at the four-day Paso Wine Fest celebration May 19-22 at the Paso Robles Event Center. For more information, visit pasowine. com/events/winefest.

RODEO CONTINUED FROM A1

family-filled event for the community where the community could come together and celebrate togetherness, the sport of rodeo, law enforcement, and the western way of life,” Nicholson said. Eight different events were held at the rodeo finals: open team roping, sort n rope, #10 roping, breakaway, sorting, barrel racing, steer wrestling, and JR team roping. Contestants competed at the SLO Sheriff ’s Rodeo Qualifier event held at the RCR River Ranch Arena a few weeks prior. Seventy-five contestants tried their hand at becoming the first to win a buckle at the inaugural rodeo. Event winners were: • Open Team Roping — Cody Mora / Dalton Pearce • Sort N Rope — Dalton Pearce / Brinan Varian • #10 Roping — Cody Mora / Shaylee Baxley • Breakaway — Jaycet Tweedy • Sorting — Joanie Ketchum, Ryan Pascoe, Chad Nicholson • Barrel Race — Cheri Kelly • JR Team Roping — Noah Cervantes / Trey White When planning the rodeo, Nicholson wanted to create a modified timed event rodeo mixed with ranch roping,

16 community members, had a collective belief the homeless problem in Paso Robles is “acute” and “negatively impacting the quality of life in Paso Robles.” To address the situation, the task force agreed future efforts should address the root causes of homelessness in Paso and tailor its services around those causes and their individual needs. It was also agreed that the city needs to enforce a

no-public-camping ordinance. There was a belief that more efforts need to be made to address drug and alcohol use in school-aged children in Paso as they are more at risk of falling down a path that leads to homelessness. “I don’t think the city is the complete solution for all aspects of homelessness,” said Mayor Steve Martin. “But we need to define what the city’s role is and make sure we fund that and apply resources to that consistently.” The item was informational

BEARCAT BOOSTER CONTINUED FROM A1

• First Place: Steve Smith and Kirby Walton • Second Place: Danny Soto and Bill Van Horbeck • Third Place: Jeff Smith and Jason Johnson Big Bearcat supporters Cindy and Jennifer Altemeyer won the 50/50 raffle — a $500 prize. Rather than serving their traditional tri-tip sandwiches, the boosters served burgers and hot dogs. The boosters are currently looking for a new tri-tip crew. For the past 10 years, the same crew has dedicated its time to cooking tri-tip for all booster events and Bearcat football games.

“I actually thought it was a pretty good idea when Orange County did it. But it does look like the Constitution does bar us from putting in some safeguards to allow it to happen. At the end of the day, it’s not a good idea.”

allowing more locals to join the fun. Announcing the rodeo was Drew Stewart, who came out from Oklahoma to lend his voice. He was joined by Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) music director and announcer Taveon Harlston. Also, during the rodeo, two North County deputies were honored for their heroism alongside their spouses. Nick Dreyfus, who was shot in the face in June 2020 while responding to an active shooter call in Paso Robles, was honored with Richard “Ted” Lehnhoff, who was shot in the leg in a shootout at the Templeton Cemetery in September of 2020. “We honored them for their heroism through a couple of those shootings, and those were both involved in the North County, and they are North County deputies,” Nicholson said. Plans are already in the works for next year’s bigger and better rodeo. Attendees can expect to see the same great rodeo with some added variations and vendors. “We want to make this an annual event, and it will be,” Nicholson said. All proceeds for the rodeo support the Sheriff ’s Advisory Foundation (SAF), which supplements the needs of law enforcement throughout the county.

only, and no action was taken. The city will be looking further into determining its role in addressing homelessness and the possibility of developing a strategic plan. A member of the public, Dale Gustin, requested the council remove all items on the consent agenda referring to oak tree removal to be discussed and voted on separately. Items 18 through 20 are requests for oak tree removal. Item 18 requested approval to remove seven oak trees at 817 Oxen Street for a new

But, the crew members have decided to pass the torch and retire. The boosters are looking to make the cornhole tournament bigger and better next year. They are looking to create a committee dedicated to making the event one for the whole family to enjoy. The boosters are also looking to include more Bearcat alumni in their events and fundraisers. “Thank you to Brett Butterfield and the Ravine Water Park staff for always supporting our community,” said Bridgette Griewank, a Bearcat Booster member. Additionally, she thanked the many people who helped put on the fundraiser: • Vickie Werling

District 5 Supervisor Debbie Arnold seconded the motion. District 2 Supervisor Bruce Gibson wanted to further pursue the conversation of independent redistricting but was supportive of not forcing staff and use of taxpayer dollars to further pursue the charter. Ultimately, all the supervisors approved Peschong’s motion

Council unanimousl y approved all three requests for oak tree removal.

Supervisors pulled the item for a separate discussion. Item 9 was the staff ’s request to approve funding allocations for the American Rescue Plan

tee was created with Councilmembers John Hamon and Steve Gregory. Hamon and Gregory recommended to the rest of council that they approve allocating the funds to ECHO in a two-year period and proposed to review and discuss the item in the next budget cycle starting July 1, 2024. Martin wanted more accountability measures for ECHO to ensure the tax dollars would be appropriately used. Councilman Hamon

echoed the Mayor’s concerns and made a motion to direct staff to bring back to council a formal resolution to fund ECHO $444,000 over the next two budget cycles of the city and work with the Ad Hoc committee and ECHO staff to agree to provide quarterly reports accounting for taxpayer dollars. Gregory seconded the motion, which passed with a 5-0 vote. The next City Council meeting is scheduled for June 7 at 6:30 p.m.

Act of 2021 (ARPA) nonprofit grants meant for those contributing to community health. Addressing homelessness was a priority for the board when considering allocating the funds. Several nonprofits who applied for the grant and were denied the funds issued complaints that the applica-

tion process was unfair. Some of those nonprofits included the Paso Robles Youth Arts Center and Boys & Girls Club. During public comment, El Camino Homeless Organization President and CEO Wendy Lewis said they are in consideration to receive the funds. Supervisor Peschong mot-

ioned to table the allocation of ARPA funds for 30 days to discuss with the nonprofits how the funds can be better allocated. The motion was passed unanimously and will be brought back for discussion on June 21. The next regularly scheduled supervisor meeting is scheduled for June 7 at 9 a.m.
