The human experience is multisensory; we are tied to each other and the natural world by millions of bits of information coming to us through sight, sound, touch, smell, taste, and movement but one by one, we have been cutting our connections and suffering the consequences. Meet Lynette Sonne, who, since founding FARMstead ED in 2014, has been making connections, creating awareness, and providing experiences for “tourists and townies” to learn about the importance of sustainable practices and craft through SLO Counties farms, ranches, purveyors, and partners. From Vicarious Ranch in San Miguel at the north to The Luffa Farm in Nipomo to the south, you will find 27 locations along the SLO County Farm Trail map for workshops, farm tours, tastings, “agriCULTURAL” experiences, pop-up markets, farm stays, “Table-to-Farm” dinners and much more!

ATASCADERO — The Atascadero City Council met for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Apr. 27, all in attendance with the exception of Mayor Pro Tem Heather Newsom. After approving the consent calendars 1 and 2 with a request to pull item 3 with a 4-0 vote Mayor Heather Moreno turned the meeting over to the City Manager, Rachelle Rickard. Rickard started with a correction to item number 3 budget adjustment for the Atascadero Mall Sewer Condition Improvement Project. The approved budget for the project was $781,000, however as construction was underway, they ran into an obstruction when drilling for the underground boring. In definition, a “boring” is a trenchless method of installing underground electrical lines along a predetermined path. The obstruction appears to be an old drainage box culvert that was not noted or known by Cal Trans when the city was assessing the project. Rickard went on to say that the item needed to be pulled due to a “typo” in the recommendation from the staff report. The staff reports fiscal impact and discussion is correct; however, the report states that an additional $250,000 needed to be allocated from the Wastewater Enterprise Fund actually needs to be $325,000 instead. Rickard would like that correction to be made. Councilmember Susan Funk stated, “just to clarify this for the public, is it fair to say that…the city engineer and others looked through several different options for this, and all them were costly and deeply unpleasant?” Rickard responded with “absolutely positively, they spent days and hours and hours…. looking at possible solutions, different scenarios…trying to figure out which was the most cost-effective path forward and that was the one that was selected.” The council voted 4-0 to approve the additional funds. Rickard continued with the City Manager update. Starting with the Earth Shine Clean Up Day that

TEMPLETON — On Sunday, Apr. 18, the Templeton Hills Community Farm celebrated its one-year anniversary! Anyone within the community was welcome to enjoy the fresh air at the farm. Homemade blueberry pancakes were served along with other refreshments and produce from the farm. Templeton Hills church member Joy Chalker said, “It was a

great day on the farm! We enjoyed harvesting, the tour, and amazing blueberry pancakes! They were so healthy with freshly ground flour, flax, and chia seeds! Thanks so much for everyone’s effort to make it amazing!” Farm manager Matt Giese gave farm tours throughout the day showing new guests around and answering any questions. Zac Page, Pastor of Templeton Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church, said, “We had a great turnout for the farm’s first anni-

versary. Quite a few people came by for the first time, expressed their excitement at discovering the farm, and said they would be back. Others who had not been up to the farm recently were excited to see how much progress has been made over the past year. Everyone who wanted was able to go home with fresh produce. The blueberry pancakes were also a big hit. It was a lot of fun to see people of all ages milling around the farm. We are excited that people are learning how to grow healthy food and are

getting to enjoy healthy outdoor community activity on the farm.” Giese said they plan to have more events like this in the future. On the tours, Giese let people know that they plan to offer gardening classes, and in July, there are plans for their volunteer beekeeper to share with the community about beekeeping. The farm is located on Templeton Hills Road in Templeton, between the Templeton Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church and school.

What started as a way to produce healthy and affordable vegetables for their community has grown into a place where people can learn how to grow and harvest their food while building memories and strong relationships. In 2019, church members wanted a place where people could gather, a community center or maybe a garden, they thought. Matt Giese, the part-time groundskeeper for the school and CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

To make matters worse, the combination of our immediate lifestyle with the recent isolation caused by the pandemic has further compounded our collective disconnect by creating a strange time-warping effect on our psyche. What can we do? Enter Lynette Sonne, founder and “Herd Boss” of FARMstead Ed and creator of the SLO County Farm Trail map, who just might have the antidote we need. The “COVID time warp” has been spoken about by Psychology Today, Wired, Vox, and other publications and basically refers to a warping of our senses by simultaneously having too much time while being stressed by not having enough time. Spending time without having meaningful, immersive events to mark its passing takes a toll. What’s the difference between celebrating a birthday with friends and family virtually, watching a movie at home, or playing a game on the computer? How engaged are you with each of these experiences, and how memorable are they? Also, with the ability to order just about anything at any time and receive it within hours by the press of a button or a word to Alexa, do we know where it actually comes from, what’s involved, or who even made the product?

Greyhounds First In Ocean League After Big Win Over Templeton

Bearcats vs. Greyhounds: A Rivalry that Dates Back to 1919 Paso Robles holds a record of 4-2 after a victory over Santa Maria By CONNOR ALLEN

T

he Paso Robles Bearcats hosted their final home game of the 2021 spring season on Friday night and cruised to a 49-7 victory over a depleted Santa Maria team that entered the game with fewer than 20 overall players. The victory on Friday night makes three consecutive wins for the Bearcats team that now holds a record of 4-2 with just one game left on the season, the rivalry game against the Atascadero Greyhounds. The rivalry started back in 1919, making this season the 101st year of the rivalry. The teams have played each other every season since, with the only exceptions from World War II and nearly the COVID-19 pandemic. The two teams have played for division titles, pride, playoff berths, and even a CIF championship once. With no playoffs on the horizon and both teams already finished with their league schedule in the special spring season, the upcoming game counts for one thing only, North County bragging rights. While the Greyhounds will enter the game on Friday still in search of their first win, nothing would make those in orange and grey happier than ending the season with a win over the Bearcats. Paso Robles seems to have hit their stride during their winning streak and will enter the game on Friday night riding a tidal wave of confidence. Last Friday, the Bearcats put together their most complete performance of the season, dominating Santa Maria from the first whistle to the final one, and even finding time to play some guys who have spent the season waiting for their shot under the bright lights. Paso Robles received the opening kickoff and immediately began grinding out yards on the ground, controlling the clock and the tempo. The Bearcats took their first drive 68-yards in five plays and capped it off with a touchdown from sophomore running back Leo Kemp. The Saints followed up the Paso Robles score with a three-and-out and punt

that gave the Bearcats the ball on their own 11-yard line. Just as they did against Templeton last week, the Bearcats worked the ball methodically down the field through a multitude of running plays that accentuate the hard-running style of their two big running backs in Kemp and Jake Morones. While Kemp and Morones have received much of the praise this season, the Bearcats offensive line has been the most impressive, and they continued their fantastic season on Friday. After starting on their own 11-yard line, Paso Robles put together a 14-play 89-yard drive that sucked a little more life out of the Saints with each first down gained. Junior running back Coleton Sullivan entered the game as running back and powered his way into the endzone giving the Bearcats a 14-0 lead. On the Bearcat's next possession, they got another new face involved in the backfield in junior Vicente Echevarria, who ran with just as much tenacity as starters. After a few carries, the line opened up a hole on the right side, and Echevarria sprang through it and turned on the jets for a 35-yard touchdown, and the rout was on at War Memorial Stadium. There was a little bit of drama late in the second quarter, but the Bearcats quickly slammed the door shut. Santa Maria was finally able to get on the board thanks to some backyard football and a fortuitous bounce when a pass into the endzone hit two players before ending in the arms of a Saints receiver. On the next possession, Paso Robles would fumble in the red zone, and the Saints would recover in the shadow of their own goal line. However, the Bearcat defense would not let the Saints stick around and forced a quick three-and-out. Morones would jog into the endzone untouched on the next possession, and Paso Robles would go into halftime up 28-7 and would never look back. At 3-2, the Bearcats currently sit behind St. Joseph and Righetti, who handed Paso Robles their only two losses of the season in the Mountain League. Friday's matchup with the Greyhounds is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff and can be streamed online or listened to on the radio.

AHS controls its own destiny for league title By CONNOR ALLEN NORTH COUNTY — The Atascadero Greyhounds and Templeton Eagles met up on Thursday night for the biggest boys soccer game in the county to this point in the 2021 spring season as they battled for first place in the Ocean League. The two teams tied in their opener 4-4, but the Greyhounds came out on top at home Thursday, narrowly defeating the Eagles 2-1. Every game between these two teams has become an instant classic, and Thursday’s game was no different. Due to the special 2021 COVID-19 spring season, neither of the teams were able to play preseason games this year and were instead given a schedule of just 12 league games, making every single game so important because one loss could be all it takes to finish in second place. On Mar. 23, these two teams played in Templeton in a bit of a wind storm that turned into an offensive explosion in the season opener. The game in Templeton began with the Eagles jumping out to an early lead, up 3-1 at halftime, with the Greyhounds playing catchup in the second; however, the script was flipped in the second meeting of the two as it was the Greyhounds that took the early lead at home. Both teams entered the game red

#

hot and without a loss on their record. Following the tie to kick off the season, Templeton won five straight games in an absolutely dominating fashion. During their win streak, the Eagles outscored their opponents 23-4, scoring as many as nine goals in one game, and recorded three shutouts in the streak. The Greyhounds followed up the season-opening tie with another road tie to Morro Bay 1-1 before going on a winning streak of their own for four consecutive games. In the three games before the matchup with the Eagles, Atascadero outscored their opponents 12-4, scoring four goals in three straight games. Thursday’s matchup was one where truly something had to give, and while many might have thought it would be another shootout, it became a defensive struggle, especially in the second half. For the first 20 minutes of the game, it was scoreless as both teams tried to establish their tempo and rhythm while also not giving up any kind of cheap goal. Once the nerves had settled a bit, the Hounds began attacking. Senior captain Martin Anguiano, who has been a key contributor on the varsity team since his freshman year, began probing around the Eagle defense looking for soft spots and finally found one down the right sideline. Anguiano looked up and saw his 6-foot-3-inch forward Ryan Maclean standing near the six-yard box and played into him, and Maclean did the rest, putting the Hounds up 1-0.

04

With a lead, the Greyhounds kept the pressure on, and once again, Anguiano made something happen with quick feet. Just a few minutes after the first goal, Anguiano ripped a shot that was blocked by the Templeton keeper but ricocheted back into play. Maclean raced after the ball, trying to take a shot of his own, but was also blocked. The ball bounced away from the net but found itself rolling unattended towards an awaiting Jackson Bedell, who put the ball into the empty net giving the Hounds a 2-0 lead with about 15 minutes to go in the first half. Down 2-0, the Eagles cranked the pressure up and began to flip the field position battle, eventually earning a corner kick for their own side. The Eagles hit a perfect pass into the box, and freshman Rocco Chalekson soared to get it. With the goal, Templeton cut the lead down to only one but was never quite able to put another goal in the back of the net. Atascadero now controls their own destiny in the Ocean League and can win the title if they win out this spring. However, Tuesday night, the Hounds have another massive game against Morro Bay, this time at home. Should Atascadero be able to get past the Pirates, they will have a great shot at finishing the season unbeaten. The Eagles will now need a little help from the Hounds while also taking care of their business. Templeton will also continue their season Tuesday night as they host Nipomo.

Boys Soccer: The boy's soccer program is 3-1-1 to start the year, with their lone loss coming at the feet of Pioneer Valley. Tuesday night, the boys picked up a big 4-1 win over Righetti. Paso Robles will continue their season Thursday night when they face Santa Maria. Girls Soccer: The Lady Bearcats soccer team is 2-3 on the year but got back to their winning ways on Tuesday night, defeating Righetti 4-1. The girls will continue their 10-game league season on Thursday when they host St. Joseph. Girls Volleyball: The girl's volleyball team began their season with a perfect 10-0 start until they dropped their first game of the season Tuesday night to SLO. The Bearcats will get their shot at revenge on Wednesday night when they play SLO for the second time.

NORTH COUNTY FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Bearcats, Eagles and Greyhounds Junior Varsity Earn Victories By CONNOR ALLEN PASO ROBLES The Paso Robles Bearcats hosted Santa Maria on Friday night and put together their best game of the season, cruising to a 49-7 victory over the Saints. Santa Maria brought their skeleton crew to War Memorial, dressing less than 20 players, and the Bearcats took advantage by running the ball early and often. Paso Robles took their first two drives of the game straight down the field, running 19 total plays for touchdowns, and were able to spend the evening getting playing time for some guys that were hungry to see the field. The Bearcats led the game 28-7 at halftime and never looked back. TEMPLETON The Templeton Eagles made a trip over the grade on Friday night for another big game against the San Luis Obispo Tigers. Templeton was

able to get out to a quick 13-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Tigers battled back in the second half to make it a game. However, the Eagle defense was up to the challenge, and Templeton snapped their losing streak winning 20-13. ATASCADERO The Atascadero Greyhounds played their rescheduled game with Pioneer Valley Friday night and kept it close for a quarter before falling, 47-12. Both teams scored on their two opening possession, but that would be the last time the Hounds found the endzone on the evening. The first football win of the season for Atascadero did come on Friday, but for the junior varsity team who defeated the Bearcats at War Memorial. The tandem of Kane Cooks and Mason Degnan put up some big numbers through the air while Diego Real pounded the ball between the tackles. Greyhounds beat the Bearcats 26-13.

LOCAL NEWS COVID-19 UPDATE

SLO County Advances to Orange Tier

Additional businesses can resume modified indoor operations and activities STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — San Luis Obispo County Public Health announced on Tuesday that SLO County has met the State’s metrics required to move from the Red Tier into the less restrictive Orange Tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, effective Wednesday, Apr. 28. This means many businesses should review the State’s guidance for their industries. Some will be able to open with modification for the first time, and others may be able to open for increased but still modified indoor operations. New Orange Tier restrictions are effective Apr. 28. “We are grateful to see things moving in the right direction,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer. “We cannot lose sight of the end goal. To fully restore health to our community, we must remain vigilant: get vaccinated against COVID-19, maintain personal safety measures, and get tested if you have symptoms so we can beat this thing.” COVID-19 case rates in SLO County have remained stable and are not declining as quickly as other surrounding counties. While

the County of San Luis Obispo met Red Tier metrics last week, Dr. Borenstein submitted a request to the State to review data discrepancies and include a portion of Cal Poly tests in the overall testing volume. As a result, the State found that the County did, in fact, meet Orange Tier metrics as part of its adjusted case rate last week and can move to Orange Tier. The State’s Blueprint allows counties in the Orange Tier to reopen indoor operations for some additional business sectors and provides for certain activities to resume. Local businesses must follow all State guidance for their industry and self-certify that they are ready to reopen. Here are some of the activities now allowed under the Orange Tier: • Restaurants: Indoor seating increases to 50 percent capacity or 200 people maximum. • Gyms and Fitness Centers: 25 percent capacity indoors; indoor pools can open. • Wineries and Breweries: 25 percent or 100 people indoors maximum • Theaters: 50 percent or 200 people max • Museums, Zoos, and Aquariums: 50 percent capacity for indoor activities. • Places of Worship: 50 percent capacity indoor activities. • Bars with no food service: Open outdoors with modifications. • Gatherings and events: View the County’s checklists for capacity limits and restrictions.

Masking Update The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued the following statement in response to Tuesday’s announcement from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention to update masking guidance for fully vaccinated Americans. “We have reviewed and support the CDC’s new masking recommendations and are working quickly to align California’s guidance with these common-sense updates,” said State Public Health Officer Dr. Tomás Aragón, Director of CDPH. “While more than 50 percent of Californians 16+ are partially or fully vaccinated, many others are still not vaccinated, and the threat of variants remains. We continue to urge all eligible Californians to get vaccinated to help us move past this pandemic.” Statewide COVID-19 Data as of Apr. 27 • California has 3,633,185 confirmed cases to date. Numbers may not represent true day-over-day change as reporting of test results can be delayed. • There were 1,445 newly recorded confirmed cases Monday. • The 7-day positivity rate is 1.2 percent. • There have been 59,484,125 tests conducted in California. This represents an increase of 156,757 during the prior 24-hour reporting period. • There have been 60,208 COVID-19 deaths

since the start of the pandemic. • As of Apr. 27, providers have reported administering a total of 28,682,914 vaccine doses statewide. The CDC reports that 36,545,160 doses have been delivered to entities within the state. Numbers do not represent true day-to-day change as reporting may be delayed. San Luis Obispo County as of Apr. 27 • 21,138 total cases since March 2020 • 8 new cases • 179 active cases • 6 cases in the hospital (2 in ICU) • 20,697 recovered cases, at a 98 percent recovery rate • 260 deaths 0.012 percent death rate (difference being the 179 active cases) Visit readyslo.org for more information.

VACCINE

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a statement from Dr. Erica Pan, state epidemiologist, regarding the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup’s recommendation to support the lift of a temporary pause on administration of the Johnson & Johnson( Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine. “After a thorough review of very rare adverse events following the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup supports the recommendation of the FDA and CDC to lift the pause on the vaccine. Clinics in California may begin administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine immediately as long as they provide appropriate educational materials to inform

patients of the vaccine’s low risk of associated health effects and other available vaccine options. More than half of Californians 16 and older have received one of the three vaccines available, and the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine is also an important tool in our fight to stop the spread of COVID-19, especially as more aggressive variants of the virus spread throughout the country. We hope we continue to make progress in getting more Californians vaccinated so we can move beyond this pandemic,” Dr. Pan said. Pan’s statement came after a thorough safety review, including two meetings of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined that the recommended

pause regarding the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID19 Vaccine in the U.S. should be lifted and use of the vaccine should resume. The pause was recommended after reports of six cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals following administration of the Johnson & Johnson ( Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine. During the pause, medical and scientific teams at the FDA and CDC examined available data to assess the risk of thrombosis involving the cerebral venous sinuses, or CVST (large blood vessels in the brain), and other sites in the body (including but not limited to the large blood vessels of the abdomen and the veins of the legs) along with thrombocytopenia, or low blood platelet counts. The teams at FDA and CDC also conducted extensive outreach

DOWNTOWN SLO

SLO Farmers' Market Set to Return with Modifications Thursday Night Farmers’ Market to Higuera street beginning on May 6 STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — After more than a year of no operation due to COVID-19, Downtown SLO announces that the Thursday Night Farmers’ Markets will return to Higuera street every Thursday beginning on May 6 from 6–9 p.m. Downtown SLO is excited to welcome the community back to the Market; however, it will be rolled out in phases over the coming year. The Market’s first phase will operate as a certified farmers’ market with other essential foods and goods as defined by the markets that are able to operate under the red tier of the California Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Market visitors can expect to see the following types of vendors during its first phase: • Certified Farmers offering fresh local produce • Food Artisans offering pre-sealed to-go food items/ ingredients such as bread, pastries, salsa, and more. • Craft/Home goods such as soap, salves, candles, and more. The first phase of The Market will not have entertainment or meals available for purchase, and all visitors will be required to wear masks at all times, remain socially distanced, and not gather. Eating and drinking will not be permitted within the market boundaries. The Market will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. within a reduced footprint- on Higuera Street from Chorro to Osos. They will be monitoring the conditions of the Market and adding vendor categories and additional street closures as the months progress. The Market will not be what it was at first, but Downtown SLO hopes that the return of this beloved Thursday Night tradition will allow locals to come downtown, get fresh, locally grown produce, and dine at one of the many incredible downtown restaurants who are open and ready to serve you safely. During the month of May, visitors to The Market are invited to explore the May Flower Initiative, a downtown community art project featuring artist-painted windows on more than 85 storefronts, a Plaza Pop-Up in partnership with the City of San Luis Obispo, and other colorful surprises. For more information on the market, please visit DowntownSLO.com.

to providers and clinicians to ensure they were made aware of the potential for these adverse events and could properly manage and recognize these events due to the unique treatment required for these blood clots and low platelets, also known as thrombosis-thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS). The two agencies have determined the following: • Use of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine should be resumed in the United States. • The FDA and CDC have confidence that this vaccine is safe and effective in preventing COVID-19. • The FDA has determined that the available data show that the vaccine’s known and potential benefits outweigh its known and potential risks in individuals 18 years of age and older. • At this time, the available data

suggest that the chance of TTS occurring is very low, but the FDA and CDC will remain vigilant in continuing to investigate this risk. • Health care providers administering the vaccine and vaccine recipients or caregivers should review the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers Administering Vaccine (Vaccination Providers) external icon and Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregiversexternal icon, which have been revised to include information about the risk of this syndrome, which has occurred in a very small number of people who have received the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. San Luis Obispo County Health Office has not released a statement whether or not the county will resume administration of the vaccine as of today.

LOCAL NEWS SMART CASE: CIVIL LAWSUIT

Smart’s Attorney James Murphy Files Lawsuit Against Ruben Flores Filing claims Flores removed the remains of Kristin Smart from its location By CAMILLE DeVAUL SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Apr. 22, James Murphy, the Smart family’s attorney, filed an intentional infliction of emotional distress lawsuit against Ruben Flores. Murphy is the civil attorney for Stan and Denise Smart, who is suing Ruben Flores for emotional damages related to the disappearance of their daughter, Kristin Smart, a Cal Poly student who went missing in 1997. Ruben Flores (80) is the father of Paul Flores (44), who is currently in jail and charged for the murder of Kristin Smart. Ruben Flores is charged with accessory after the fact to murder; it is alleged that he helped to conceal Smart’s body after the murder was committed. On Monday, Apr. 19, both defendants appeared in the San Luis Obispo Superior Court by video from the San Luis Obispo County Jail after a continuum from the Friday before. The hearing started with Robert Sanger, legal counsel for Paul Flores entering a plea of not guilty for the murder of Kristin Smart. Ruben Flores’s attorney Harold Mesick also entered

a plea of not guilty for the accessory after the fact to the murder of Kristin Smart. When discussing bail, the Honorable Judge Craig Van Rooyen ruled to continue no bail for Paul Flores due to the possible life sentence in the case, which he stated that he has not remained crime-free since the alleged offense to date. As for Ruben Flores, the highest sentencing for a charge of accessory to murder after the fact in California is three years, a sentence Ruben Flores could serve just going through the evidence. Judge Van Rooyen agreed to review his financials, and then they would meet back on Wednesday to determine the bail amount for Ruben Flores. During the bail hearing for Ruben Flores on Wednesday, Apr. 21, Judge Van Rooyen lowered Ruben’s bail from $250,000 to $50,000. That same night, Less than 12 hours prior to the lawsuit being filed, Ruben Flores was released on bail from San Luis Obispo County jail by his wife, Susan Flores. The lawsuit reads: “On Feb. 5, 2020, representatives of the San Luis Obispo Sheriff ’s Department served a search warrant upon Defendant Ruben Flores. The warrant authorized a search of the premises at 710 White Court, Arroyo Grande.

VANDALISM

Glenn's Repair & Rental, Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats Vandalized on Sunday

On or about Feb. 9, 2020, Defendant Ruben Flores removed the remains of Kristin Smart from its location, which, on information and belief, were located at 710 White Court, Arroyo Grande. Two additional individuals, who will later be named as defendants in this action, participated with Defendant Ruben Flores in the removal of the remains of Kristin Smart from the location at 710 White Court, Arroyo Grande. Defendant Ruben Flores, on or about Feb. 9, 2020, acted in complicity and in concert with the Doe defendants in removing the remains of Kristin Smart from the burial location inside of the lattice enclosure below the deck of Defendant Ruben Flores’ White Court residence.” In the complaint, Murphy alleges “Ruben Flores and Doe defendants 1 and 2 worked through the night, under the cover of darkness, to remove the remains of Kristin Smart to avoid having those remains at 710 White Ct. in the event of an additional search of the property.” According to KSBY, Murphey said in an interview that witnesses saw Ruben Flores, Susan Flores, and her boyfriend, Mike McConville (named as defendants one and two in the complaint), working underneath Ruben’s house in Arroyo Grande during the night of Feb. 9, 2020.

RECALL

Secretary of State Announces Sufficient Signatures Qualify for a Special Election to Recall Governor Newsom

STAFF REPORT

STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — Over the weekend, two local businesses were vandalized by what city officials say was a slingshot that shattered the storefront windows. Glenn's Repair & Rental, located at the north end of Atascadero, and Alle-Pia Fine Cured Meats on the south end both are the victims of the assailant(s) that caused thousands of dollars of damage on Sunday, Apr. 25. Glenn's repair shared that according to their video surveillance cameras, they know it was a person(s) in a silver sedan. The Atascadero Police Department is currently investigating the two incidents, and according to officials, the damage appears to be caused by a slingshot and not a firearm. The city stated that there is no

SACRAMENTO — On Apr. 26 the California Secretary of State announced they received 2,162,774 signatures in the recall campaign against Governor Gavin Newsom. Of those, 1,626,042 have been certified as valid, moving the effort into the next phase. The final verification is due Apr. 29. “The People of California have done what the politicians thought would be impossible. This recall movement to remove Governor Gavin Newsom from office has reached yet another milestone,” said Orrin Heatlie, Lead Proponent of the Recall Gavin Newsom campaign and founder of the California Patriot Coalition. “Our work is just beginning. Now the real campaign is about to commence,” stressed Heatlie. “California is at a crossroad. People are frustrated at the destructive policies, divisive politics, and manipulative tactics conducted by Gavin Newsom since the day he became Governor. We cannot continue to allow one elected official in California to control each aspect of our lives without checks and balances,” said Randy Economy, Senior Advisor and Spokesman for RecallGavin2020. “Gavin Newsom will now be running against himself in the recall election. He created this recall because of his failed policies. Newsom has only one person to blame, and this is himself,” said Mike Netter, Co-Proponent of RecallGavin2020. Reports show that the recall has been a bipartisan effort, with more than 30 percent of the signatures gathered coming from Democrats and Libertarians, as well as Declined to State Voters who are not registered with any political party.

evidence to indicate that the businesses were targeted for a specific reason. Both Glenn's Repair and AllePia experience significant damage; however, no theft occurred. If anyone has any information on these incidents, contact the Police Department at (805)461-5051.

ROADWORK

Traffic Impacts Continue on Traffic Way and Atascadero Mall STAFF REPORT ATASCADERO — Construction is currently underway on Traffic Way between El Camino Real and Highway 101. G. Sosa Construction is conducting all improvements on the northwest side of Traffic Way before shifting to constructing improvements on the southeast side. Work is being completed along one roadway edge. Throughout construction, the outside traffic lane is closed, with traffic shifted to the other side and a single lane remaining open in each direction. Additional lane closures will not be necessary; however, there are some intermittent delays, especially during higher traffic volumes. Road work is expected to be completed in mid–June 2021. Additional road work is in progress for the Atascadero Mall project at the intersection of Atascadero Mall and Ardilla Avenue, near the pedestrian tunnel crossing Highway 101 in front of Atascadero Bible Church (ABC).

A temporary detour is set up to route through traffic traveling from Atascadero Avenue to Ardilla onto the other side of the center median to create two-way traffic on the west side of the median (ECHO side). The east side of the median is closed to through traffic but will maintain access to ABC, North County Christian School, and the pedestrian tunnel. However, the east side of the Atascadero Mall allows two-way to allow vehicles to exit from ABC and North County Christian School. Motorists are encouraged to pay close attention to the detour and to plan for a little extra time if travel through the area is necessary. Large trucks, trailers, and recreational vehicles should use alternative routes due to the tight, constrained conditions at the intersection of Atascadero Mall and Ardilla Avenue. The project will be completed in late April early May. For any questions regarding this project, please contact the Public Works Department at (805)470-3456.

CRIME

Weapons and Narcotics Arrest Made by APD Special Enforcement Team STAFF REPORT ATASCADERO — Detectives from the Atascadero Police Department’s Special Enforcement Team assisted the San Luis Obispo County Probation Department to conduct a compliance check in the 7200 block of Cortez on Apr. 22 at approximately 3:51 p.m. The units were assisted by Narcotic Detectives from the SLO Sheriff ’s Special Operations Unit and K-9 teams from the Sheriff ’s Office and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. During the compliance check,

a search was conducted, resulting in the seizure of a large amount of Fentanyl. Officers also located and seized methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, firearms, and ammunition. The resident, 38-year-old Ryan Stolz, was placed under arrest for being a Felon in Possession of Firearms, Possession of Narcotics, Willful Cruelty to a Child, and Revocation of Probation. Also arrested was Guadalupe Zavala, 32 years old of Atascadero, for Willful Cruelty to a Child and Being Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance.

Murphy said there is “compelling evidence” that Kristin’s remains were removed from Ruben’s property and scattered in the Huasna area. The complaint explains that Kristin Smart’s remains have been moved at least three times since she disappeared from Cal Poly campus 25 years ago. The complaint reads, “Defendant Ruben Flores had previously transported the body of Kristin Smart from the Cal Poly dorm room of Paul Flores to the initial burial site at the home of defendant Ruben Flores.” Murphy filed a lawsuit against both Ruben and Paul Flores in 1997, but the suit was dropped when Ruben Flores filed for bankruptcy. To read the most up-to-date details of the case and preliminary court hearings, visit atascaderonews.com.

“This is extremely important to us here in California and others across America,” said Heatlie. On Monday, Apr. 12, Heatlie addressed the Senate Elections Committee in objection to SB 663, authored by Senator Josh Newman, who also sits on the committee. Senator Newman serves the 29th district and was the subject of a recall in 2018 where the voters successfully removed him from office. He was the first State Senator to be removed from office by recall in more than a century. During the 2020 election, he ran again and won his seat back. According to the Recall Campaign, Newman has made it his personal mission to radically change the recall process in California. The OC Registrar stated in an article published Mar. 12, “Some of the first legislation Sen. Josh Newman has authored since being elected back to the 29th district seat is about tightening the recall process with twin bills that would remove financial incentives for paid signature gatherers and another to give recall targets a new way to fight back.” Heatlie stated, “this is dangerous and reckless legislation, which threatens the very fabric of the recall process. Privacy is key to participation. People are already afraid to place their names on a petition in fear of retaliation and retribution. This Governor has already shown a propensity for retaliation against his opposition. He threatened to pull permits, state licenses, or revoke state board certificates for those who oppose his orders. Earlier, he also stated California would no longer contract with companies working on the border wall. Sen. Newman stated there were safeguards in the bill to prevent retaliation. According to the Recall

Campaign, Lois Lerner abused the power of her office to weaponize the IRS to target conservative businesses and individuals who opposed the Obama Administration. Lerner later denied the allegations and plead the 5th on nearly every question posed to her during congressional hearings on the matter. Sen. Newman said, “Governor Newsom has access to social media and knows the names of the proponents, and its not hard to identify the people involved. If he [Governor Newsom] wanted to retaliate, he would have already.” During the final moments of the hearing, Heatlie respectfully asked to be recognized by the committee chair to reply directly to this comment but was denied. Heatlie later stated, “Governor Newsom has retaliated against the proponents of this recall already. He knows who we are, and his opposition team have gone to great lengths to launch a smear campaign against us. They have delved into our personal and private lives to dredge up anything they could use against us to paint our team in a negative light. Governor Newsom has shown us exactly what he would do with this information, as would any other elected official if given the opportunity. Sen. Newman himself stated the bill was amended to exempt

smaller communities, where the recall would require less than 50,000 signatures.” Heatlie said in summary, “those are small communities, where everyone knows everyone, and the real threat of retaliation exists. That he acknowledged and admitted personal information of an individual who signs a petition could be used to retaliate against them by the target of a recall on a micro-level proves the case it could also be used on a macro level, especially given the fact someone like Governor Newsom has access to unlimited resources. In an open letter sent to Orrin Heatlie on Apr. 14, Don Perata (Chair State Senate Pro Tem Emeritus) asked for “immediate release copies of all the recall petitions submitted to the County Registrars and Secretary of State. Our Committee will pay for the cost of making copies. We are prepared to move forward with legal action seeking transparency and disclosure if the copies are not made available.” Adding, “Should you fail to act, we will proceed with further legal remedies. We are willing to discuss this matter, but please understand that we will settle for nothing short of immediate release of all the petitions.” For more information on the recall, effort visit RecallGavin2020.com

VERDICT

Judge Sentences Uber Driver Nunez to 46 Years to Life Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez was convicted of thirteen felony counts, including sexual crimes, burglary, and theft STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — District Attorney Dan Dow announced on Apr. 27, that San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen has sentenced Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez (43) to serve 8 years, 8 months in state prison to be followed by 46-years-to-life in state prison. On Mar. 26, 2021, a San Luis Obispo County jury found Alarcon-Nunez guilty of 13 felonies, including assault with the intent to commit rape during a residential burglary, four counts of burglary of an occupied residence, one count of rape by force, two

counts of rape of an intoxicated individual, one count of oral copulation of an intoxicated individual, one count of assault with intent to commit rape and one count of grand theft. The crimes were committed between July 2017 and January 2018 and involved the victimization of five women, four of whom were local college students. Three of the five courageous survivors provided powerful statements to the court describing the impact these crimes have had on their lives. One 19-year-old survivor explained that she used to live in “the happiest place in America” until being victimized in her own home. She noted that this conviction and sentence provide a “chance for justice.” Another survivor applauded the support of her family and others in helping her heal, concluding that she is “a good person with a bright future”

who refuses to let the defendant’s cowardly actions control her life. One final survivor credited her family and counselor with providing support and a degree of comfort in knowing that she is not alone. “We acknowledge the courage of these five survivors in providing the testimony and evidence necessary to achieve justice,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “Their voices were heard loud and clear by this jury. The defendant’s predatory actions decisively illustrate that he is not safe to be out in the community, and with his imprisonment, he will be unable to victimize anyone again.” A copy of the charging document can be found by visiting slocounty.ca.gov. The investigation was conducted by the San Luis Obispo City Police Department in collaboration with various law enforcement partners including, the Santa

Barbara City Police Department, Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office, Pismo Beach Police Department, and the San Luis Obispo County District Attorneys Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Melissa Chabra. Contact Assistant District Attorney Eric J. Dobroth at (805)7815819 with any questions.

She was always game for a shot at “Lady Luck.” Edna’s love for family, community, and life was a constant and could be seen in her effortless smile and carefree demeanor.

ANN JUTRAS 1956 - 2021

ith great sadness and fond memories, we announce the passing of Ann Jutras after a prolonged battle with cancer, a battle that she fought until her final day. Ann was born in Amesbury, Massachusetts, on June 23, 1956, to Laurent (Larry) and Leona Jutras and graduated from Amesbury

Poly Pomona. Returning to Santa Barbara, Brett started his own landscaping business. In 1961, he married his first wife, Judy Ann Johnson. They had two girls, Gwynn Ellen and Lesley Jean. They moved to Pacific Grove, where he started work for CalTrans as a tree surgeon, arborist, and lead foreman covering all of Monterey County. Part of his responsibilities was to trim and care for giant redwoods in Big Sur. Prior to his retirement from CalTrans, he set the standard of tree work protocol which is still used today. Ultimately, he was drawn back to the ocean and spent the rest of his working life as a commercial fisherman. He fished many areas off the Central Coast from San Simeon to Half Moon Bay. Although his marriage of 22 years with Judy ended, they continued a lifetime of friendship and a shared love of their daughters. In 1984, Brett married Lesley Keil and adopted Asia Keil as his first son. Soon after, they had twins, Steven and Keil Gourley. He shared his love of fishing and hunting with his sons, who have avidly continued his passion. Although Brett and Lesley’s marriage eventually ended in 1993, their friendship endured. After some time had passed, Brett reconnected with a longtime friend, Christie Ford, who became his third wife and the love of his life, in February of 2003. Her three children from a previous marriage quickly became

enjoyed spending time with his close friends and with his girlfriend Ashley and her son. Throughout his twenties and into his thirties, Seth battled drug addiction and, in the end, was overtaken. His family is comforted knowing that he had known Jesus and will one day be reunited. A memorial service open to family and friends will be held Saturday, May 1 at 11:00 am at Life Community Church 3770 Ruth way, Templeton, Ca.

Gertrude was the daughter of immigrant Swiss dairy farmers Arnold and Martha Abacherli in the Chino Valley. She remained proud of her Swiss heritage and shared that love of Switzerland with her children and grandchildren. Gertie spent her childhood on her family’s farm, first on farmland at the Prado Dam and later in Chino. She attended school at Saint George’s Elementary School and began playing the organ at church when she was 10 … something she continued to do every Sunday for the next 70 years. Gertrude graduated from Chaffey High School in 1948. She went on to attend Queen of Angels Hospital Nursing Program

High School in 1974 as valedictorian, head cheerleader, and math team champion. She moved to San Luis Obispo County, California, in 1978 with her then-husband, Peter Banks, and soon after birthed her two children Justin Banks and Rachel (Banks) Hunter. She served the Atascadero Police Department from 1986 to 2012 as a dispatcher and support services supervisor. During her career, she spent time as the president of the Atascadero Police Association, the APD Senior Volunteer Coordinator, was involved with CLEARS (California Law Enforcement Association of Records Supervisors) and many

members of Brett’s large and extended family. During their marriage, they shared a passion for the written word, history, politics, a prolific garden, and their dog Nellie. They also enjoyed traveling, fishing, hunting, and the meals they shared with so many friends and family. Brett was a man of countless talents and attributes, as a builder, woodcarver, and master craftsman. By the end of his life, he had constructed seven boats from a 12foot Pirogue to a 20-foot Alaskan Skiff. Although he lived a simple life, he was anything but simple. Distinguished, kind-hearted, and gentle to some; roughedged, untamed, and rugged to others. His love was shown through deeds, not words. As a deep thinker and man of few words, when he spoke, everyone listened, and when you spoke, he always listened. Brett was preceded in death by his parents and maternal aunt Marjorie. He is survived by his wife Christie, his beloved sister Jill Ryan, two daughters, Gwynn (Martin) and Lesley (Andrea); three sons, Asia (Heather), Steven and Keil (Melissa); eleven grandchildren; nine nieces and nephews; two previous wives; Christie’s children, Peddrick ( Johanna), Max (Maria) and Beth (Bruce) and his two cousins Cindy Reed ( Jim) and Brian Clare. Due to COVID restrictions, at this time, there will be no public memorial.

It’s not easy to summarize the beautiful, loving life of this wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend. Maria embraced everyone around her with love and positivity. She had such a kind and giving soul and MARIA GORETTI was always there, willing LAVIGNE to do for others first and 1966 - 2021 foremost. She embraced her faith with eternal aria Goretti commitment, joy, and Lavigne, beauty. May her soul rest born in in peace. Atascadero, CA, April 7th, Maria is survived by 1966, went to be with the her husband Rick, chilLord on April 14th, 2021. dren Marianna and Justin,

in Los Angeles, where she graduated as an RN, later working in public health, hospitals, and doctor’s offices. After retirement, she was an invaluable resource of health information for family, friends, and neighbors. On a blind date, in 1954, she met Don McMasters. Her first impression - a handsome, tall man in a leather jacket. His first impression - a lovely lady in her nurse’s uniform with the blue nurse’s cape blowing in the wind. On April 30, 1955, Don and Gertrude were married at Saint Margaret’s Catholic Church in Chino. Four children filled their lives in Ontario over the next 20 years, but when they were drawn to the

other community projects. Ann’s hobbies included sewing, reading, traveling, community service, and watching Jeopardy. Ann’s passion was her grandchildren: Julie, Andrew, Lauren, Sadie, and Jemma. Ann is also survived by her six siblings: Charles, Marie, Marian, Paul, James, and Arlene and her childrenin-law, John Hunter and Audrey Banks. Ann will continue to be loved and missed every day. A memorial service will be planned at some point in the future. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the American Cancer Society, Hearst Cancer Center, or the Friends of the Charles Paddock Zoo.

rolling oak hillsides and rugged coastline of San Luis Obispo County, they followed their hearts and moved to the Central Coast. They lived in Atascadero for the next 40 years. Gertie’s Catholic faith was important to her and a big part of her life. She was especially close to her “church family” at Santa Margarita de Corona and maintained that closeness when she moved to Camarillo in 2016 to live with her daughter and son-inlaw. There she was embraced by a new faith family from Padre Serra Parish. Gertrude is survived by four children and their spouses. Ann ( Jim) Mulligan, John (MaryAnn) McMasters, Thomas

elcome to the first edition of "The Beacon," the official newsletter of the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation (AGF). While some of the LIGHTHOUSE events were cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID19 pandemic, the work of the AGF continues with the amazing support of our community. Donations were received in the name of the LIGHTHOUSE 5K Fun Run, the Wayne Cooper Memorial Golf Tournament raised $23,000.00, and we received some significant donations from private citizens. We celebrated the Holiday Season with the arrival of our new book. Finally, the first Annual Review of the LIGHTHOUSE Programs has been developed. It provides a comprehensive overview of the current LIGHTHOUSE programs and highlights what we want to see for 2021, which also aligns with the Executive Board's Strategic Action Plan. We are excited and hopeful that our events scheduled for 2021 will be held now that it appears the pandemic is becoming a manageable situation. Vaccinations are happening; however, we still must remember that appropriate precautions need to be of the highest priority. LIGHTHOUSE Weapon of

805.237.6060

Rescue was released Christmas Eve, 2020. The book, written by Carol Gobler, reveals the awakening of Atascadero to our story of drug abuse by the children of our community. LIGHTHOUSE is about disaster, rescue, chaos, and peace. Its purpose is to provide safety, protection, and recovery through support and services. As the book progresses, it becomes apparent that the narrative could also act as a manual that others might follow to create a LIGHTHOUSE in any community. As this program becomes part of other communities, it will become apparent that the components of each program will look different from LIGHTHOUSE Atascadero. A program in another town will also involve amazing and unique teachers and school administrators. Each town will count on amazing service clubs, city officials, and community leaders to bring light to the darkness that comes from drug abuse. The stories of parents whose losses are shared so vividly by Carol will be repeated, although in different detail by the parents in other towns. The Youth of Atascadero, Atascadero Greyhound Foundation, Atascadero Unified School District, City of Atascadero, in collaboration with our business community and service clubs, have worked together to create LIGHTHOUSE Atascadero. Order your own copy from Amazon Books.com: LIGHTHOUSE WEAPON OF RESCUE by Carol Freed Gobler. Thank you for your continued support during 2020, and remember, "THE LIGHT IS STILL ON"!

The undersigned or its predecessor caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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 (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.STOXPOSTING. COM, using the file number assigned to this case 094440-CA. 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: Effective January 1, 2021, 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 (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www.clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 094440-CA 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.

ast weekend we celebrated two birthdays in our family, and things felt almost normal again. On Saturday, we ventured to Morro Bay with the “birthday people,” our daughter-in-law, Michele and our son Doug, and my husband, John, and ate lunch at Dorn’s. It seemed like everyone else in the county was out and about that day, just enjoying a sense of “freedom.” We killed some time after lunch so that the rest of the family could prepare for a surprise 60th birthday party at the San Miguel home of Doug and Michele. Their kids really pulled it off and are to be congratulated for their organizational skills. They had planned for an outdoor event, and the weather cooperated that day. Approximately 40 friends and family members gathered to wish Michele a Happy Birthday. On Sunday, our friends Carol and Paul Porter planned a surprise birthday luncheon for John. Diane and Mike Schneider and Joella, and Bill Dace joined in the celebration. Paul had stoked up the grill and produced some wonderful pork ribs, while others added

Did you think it just by chance that the cattle truck was four hours late?

to a great meal. Mike likes to cook and had baked a delicious glutenfree pineapple upside-down cake decorated with lots of candles for the “birthday boy.” We all agreed that it was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon with good friends! I just attended a Zoom meeting of our Assistance League of San Luis Obispo County chapter and was thrilled with the statistics reported for our philanthropic program, Operation School Bell (OSB). Despite the pandemic, we still managed to provide new, school-appropriate clothing to over 1600 students in need, in grades K through 12 in San Luis Obispo County. Students are referred to OSB through school personnel. We partner with Old Navy in San Luis Obispo and Kohl’s in Paso Robles to provide a shopping experience with one of our volunteers for the referred students with their parent or family representative. Funding for our philanthropic programs is raised through a variety of chapter events, the chapter’s Thrift Store, as well as through the generosity of private contributors, service organizations, and grants. Donations are fully tax-deductible. Visit our Thrift Store at 667 A Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, which is a key source of funding for Operation School Bell.

magine what it would be like to step out of your comfort zone and step up into the glorious, radiant light you came here to be. Sometimes individuals stay in a comfort zone because they don't know that a greater-yetto-be version of life is possible for them. They haven't yet heard the Divine whisper. American writer Richard Bach observed: What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. Last year we were all thrust into rapid change as we received the order to shelter at home to flatten the curve of covid-19. We all found our

inner flexibility, even those who before might have been rigid and set in their ways, refusing to accept or adapt to change. Just about everyone learned to use the technology that allowed us to connect virtually, which was the closest in proximity we could get at the time. A new world was born with new ways of being established. The tech-challenged asked for help and learned how to do what previously seemed impossible to them. We adjusted, adapted, and entered a world of discovery with curiosity and wonder. We knew that we could do anything for 14 days. We didn't realize that this new way of being would be the way of life for over a year. We can't hear you, you're muted, face mask required, wash your hands, and social distancing is a small sampling of what became common

phrases used daily by everyone. Reflecting on the way we adjusted inspires me. If we can make changes like that so quickly, maybe it's possible to swiftly transform our belief systems, too, propelling racial justice and equality forward in an instant. I believe that we are souls with bodies. Each of us has landed in the body temple we are in for a finite amount of time. Let's spend more time exploring our inner realm, connecting with the Divine. When we move from identifying with creation to the source of all creation, we merge with the immutable power and presence of Divine Love. It's a change in mindset that allows us to move from victim consciousness to victor consciousness. A place to truly get and believe that yes, I am as God created me, in the light, in the love, in

family who were hiding in the sleeper? And did you notice that every one of them was a prime candidate for Weight Watchers?" "Sure, I noticed all those things," said the ex-cattle trader. "That's why I told you about the nasty weather down the road and insisted that the trucker take my snow chains with him. That's why I threw them on right before we weighed the loaded truck. I picked up a couple hundred pounds in weight with those chains." "I knew what you were doing. You never got your chains back either did you? The fact is I got such a good weigh-up on those cattle I just sent those steers directly to the auction, sold them, and managed to break even on the whole deal."

THE GREAT

CANNABIS DEBATE, PART I

A special in-depth look into a growing industry and what that means to the Central Coast

For Earth Day, While Some Look to Hug a Tree, Let’s Not Forget to Kiss the Ground

By Brian Maxted

By CAMILLE DeVAUL

ne of the most controversial topics currently discussed on the Central Coast seems to be the cultivation, use, and distribution of cannabis. Before discussing various viewpoints of the topic, we first need to know the background and timeline for the legalization of cannabis in California. In 1913, California was one of the first to ban marijuana but decriminalized the substance in 1975. Then, in 1996 California was the first state to legalize medicinal marijuana with Proposition 215, which “allowed qualified patients and approved caregivers to possess and cultivate medical cannabis and ultimately led to the formation of collectives and cooperatives to serve medical patients throughout the state.” Three bills were passed in the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MCRSA) which “created a state licensing and regulatory system for the existing medical market. MCRSA also established the state’s three cannabis licensing authorities – (Bureau of Cannabis Control, CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing, and Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch).” However, these bills were repealed in 2017 when California State Legislature passed Senate Bill 94. This bill combined MCRSA with the Adult-use Marijuana Act (AUMA) to create the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), “a single regulatory system governs the medicinal and adult-use cannabis industry in California.” In Nov. 2016, California voters approved Proposition 64, which allows “adults 21 years of age or older can legally grow, possess, and use cannabis for non-medicinal purposes, with certain restrictions. Additionally, AUMA also made it legal to sell and distribute cannabis through a regulated business as of January 1, 2018.” Although the use, distribution, and cultivation of cannabis are now legal in California, MAUCRSA establishes a dual licensing structure where both state and local governments have guidelines. This means the state sets minimum requirements that all licensees must follow, and local governments can set additional requirements. Within SLO County, you have varying rules on the use and distribution of cannabis in each city or territory of the county. For Paso Robles City Limits, The Rules Are As Follows: • Cannabis Dispensaries: Dispensaries with storefronts open to the public are prohibited. Delivery dispensaries are limited to medical-only dispensaries (mobile deliveries). • Commercial Cannabis Cultivation: Commercial cannabis cultivation, indoor and outdoor, is prohibited. • Personal Cannabis Cultivation: Six cannabis plants total, grown indoors, per dwelling unit, for personal use, are permitted. Outdoor personal cultivation is prohibited. • Cannabis Activities: Cannabis testing facilities are prohibited. Cannabis manufacturing facilities are prohibited. Atascadero City Limits Rules: • Cannabis Dispensaries: Dispensaries with

storefronts open to the public are prohibited. Deliveries of recreational and medical cannabis are permitted when the dispensary is located outside of City limits. • Commercial Cannabis Cultivation: Commercial cannabis cultivation, indoor and outdoor, is prohibited. • Personal Cannabis Cultivation: Six cannabis plants total, per dwelling unit, for personal use, are permitted. Outdoor and indoor personal cultivation is permitted. • Cannabis Activities: Cannabis testing facilities are permitted. Cannabis manufacturing facilities are prohibited. As for unincorporated areas of the county, the County Board of Supervisors set cannabis-related policies. Unincorporated areas in SLO County include: Adelaide, Cholame, Lake Nacimiento, Oak Shores, San Miguel, Shandon, Whitley Gardens, Baywood Park, California Men’s Colony, Cal Poly State University, Cambria, Cayucos, Cuesta-by-the-Sea, Cuesta College, Harmony, Los Osos, San Simeon, Avila Beach, Country Club, Edna-Los Ranchos, Edna Valley, Rolling Hills Estate, Shell Beach, Squire Canyon, Sunset Palisades, Black Lake Canyon, Callendar-Garrett, Cuyama, Halcyon, Huasna-Lopez, Los Berros, Nipomo, Nipomo Mesa, Oceano, Palo Mesa, California Valley, Creston, Garden Farms, Pozo, Santa Margarita. The county has regulations for personal cultivation, dispensaries, commercial cultivation, nurseries, manufacturing, testing, and distribution facilities. There are additional requirements for any permitted cannabis activity, such as cultivation, nurseries, distribution, and manufacturing, among a few others. First is Separation from Sensitive Uses: “All permitted cannabis activities are required to be separated at least six-hundred (600) feet from any pre-school, elementary school, junior high school, high school, library, park, playground, recreation or youth center, licensed drug or alcohol recovery facility, or licensed sober living facility. However, nurseries and cultivation are required to be separated by 1,000 feet but can request a modification. When it comes to cannabis cultivation, water is a big concern for many. The county has a one-to-one water offset requirement for cannabis cultivation and nurseries in areas where the groundwater basin is at a severe level. Cannabis activities may not truck in water for their operations. But the split vote between county supervisors is just an example of how split our county is on cannabis. Drew Van Duren, a resident of Templeton, has been an active voice in the county against cannabis cultivation. He has previously spoken out against a potential cannabis farm near his home. “My stance is laser-focused on the commercial growing and production of cannabis, and I’m very much against it being done in places where it can have a detrimental effect on the environment, resources, and the health and wellbeing of the population that shares that environment. Proposition 64 didn’t authorize this. Furthermore, 79 percent of the counties in California recognize the incompatibilities and

simply don’t allow it,” said Van Duren. Beth Parham, a resident of Paso Robles, works for a dispensary in San Luis Obispo. Parham only recently started working and showing interest in the cannabis industry. She and her husband use it about once a month. Parham and her husband started to grow their cannabis plants out of curiosity and fun when it became legalized. When a position opened up at a dispensary in SLO, she thought, why not try it out. “I am absolutely in favor of commercial cannabis operations, including cannabis cultivation. Cannabis growers aren’t the stoners or criminals people imagine. They are farmers, just like all the produce farmers in the area, including the vineyards. Really, cannabis is just another crop that people are hesitant to allow in the community, just like grapes were years ago. The only difference is that cannabis, according to reports, uses less water. And since it is harvested as a whole plant and isn’t left to go dormant, poses less of a fire hazard. Tax revenue isn’t the only benefit cannabis can bring to a community. It brings jobs, income, and medicinal properties, including what some believe to be an alternative to pharmaceuticals.” For many who support the cannabis industry in SLO County, increased tax revenue is one of the first points they bring up. Van Duren counters by saying cannabis is an unethical way to bring money into the county. He says, “Whether or not cannabis makes money for the county is entirely beside the point. What matters most is how it makes that money. We should all question the ethical backbone of any county official or Supervisor who endorses a policy that pads cannabis industry and county coffers on the backs of communities and their own constituents. There are over 2 million acres of unincorporated land in SLO County; a huge portion of that is zoned agricultural, some rural-residential. Most of those acres are in the strike zone of today’s SLO County cannabis ordinance, this despite the fact that the USDA does not categorize marijuana cannabis a ‘right to farm’ commodity to begin with.” Parham feels people in our community who want to invest in cannabis cultivation are not trying to harm our community but instead bring in revenue and help rebuild our economy. She explains, “The cannabis industry isn’t here to take over our communities. It isn’t here to bring crime or a decline in the quality of the community. It isn’t here to be a detriment. It is here to be a benefit. It is here to bring people a possible alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals. It is here to possibly bring a more profitable life to local farmers. It is here to bring more tax revenue to a community that was troubled by COVID and to provide more jobs for individuals like you and me. It isn’t the nightmare some people think it is. And, properly regulated and monitored, could be an incredibly advantageous addition to our community.” Cannabis is going to be an ongoing and controversial topic within our county. As we begin this in-depth series, we will look to bring more information, different perspectives, and outlooks from both sides of the subject. And as always, with an unbiased outlook. If you or someone you know would like to share your insight into the subject, send an email to camille@13starsmedia.com.

or those of us fortunate to be working in the agriculture industry, our every day is Earth Day. We have a connection to the Earth unlike any other. Almost all non-marine life on Earth are dependent on those first few inches of soil that allow plant roots to anchor to the Earth’s surface. Equally important, each square inch of topsoil provides a home for billions of microorganisms, which are essential for breaking down essential nutrients, often naturally occurring but otherwise bound in the soil, to feed the roots. With 95 percent of our direct and indirect food supply coming from the soil, our very subsistence is highly dependent on the health of the ground below our feet. However, we’ve asked a lot of our soils over the years. According to a 2015 report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, about 33 percent of the world’s soil is “moderately to highly degraded due to erosion, salinization, compaction, acidification, and chemical pollution of soils.” And according to the EPA, poor soil management practices account for nearly half of all greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) emitted by the ag industry. While many fingers are pointing toward these challenges, the agricultural industry sits at a unique crossroad, with many in California already taking the steps to make a difference. Many of the growers we work with have been farming the same ground for multiple generations. Our company has been providing farmers here in Central California products and services essential to soil health since the time of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression. Our growers understand that the soil is the foundation for everything we do. And keeping that soil healthy and productive is their life’s work. It is not always written about or well-publicized, but California farmers are true stewards of the land and are recognized within the industry as some of the most innovative and sustainable in the world. “If you can make it in California,” they say, “you can make it anywhere.” We take a scientific approach to growing and producing the food that feeds our planet. We take regular soil, water, and tissue samples. Our in-house agronomy programs combined with precision deep ripping technology ensure we’re maximizing land development, optimizing inputs and proactively catching stressors before they negatively affect current or future crops. We revitalize the soil with amendments and organic matter that replenishes the soil’s health, which in turn makes for healthy root systems and plants instead of relying on hooking the plants

up to synthetic solutions that take more from the land in the long term than they produce. Have you ever bitten into a strawberry that has little to no taste? Chances are those crops were farmed using massive amounts of synthetic chemicals, essentially for size, look, and weight (the metrics of commerce), but were deficient in many vital nutrients not only essential for taste but what your body needs to grow and thrive. With growing pressure on each acre to be more productive, one can rationalize that trade-offs must be made to be both profitable and feed a growing planet. Yet, with soaring production and labor costs in California, our growers can’t afford to put on any more inputs than are required by a crop. And we, as an industry, can’t afford to push more into our soils than is needed. Moreover, reliance on synthetic inputs often requires incrementally more chemical inputs per acre every year while stripping the soil of its life-giving resources. And, according to the FAO’s Director, José Graziano da Silva, “further loss of productive soils would severely damage food production and food security, amplify food-price volatility, and potentially plunge millions of people into hunger and poverty.” Can we do better? Yes, we all can. We can continue to improve our soil management programs, finding creative ways to enhance soil organic matter and the availability of naturally occurring nutrients, and strive to only use the amount of inputs our soil needs to maximize production – all while helping to feed a growing population expected to surpass 9.7 billion by 2050. We can continue to restore our lands by rotating or planting cover crops, helping prevent erosion and increasing the amount of carbon stored in our soils. The good news on this Earth Day? The FAO report “offers evidence that this loss of soil resources and functions can be avoided.” And turned around, in many cases. A more recent 2019 report, California’s Climate Change Implementation Plan, for example, notes that farms and forests could absorb as much as 20 percent of California’s current level of GHG emissions. Supplement soil sequestration with improvements in soil management practices, technological advances such as GPS and variable rate applications, and improved soil sensing and sampling technologies, and we’re now able to provide our soils with only the amendments and nutrients it needs to maximize soil health and production. In that sense, technology and improved soil management practices have made our connection to the soil even stronger in recent years. So this year, instead of simply hugging a tree, let’s not forget to Kiss the Ground – and sustain that connection and dedication to improving the land we farm for generations to come.

CITY COUNCIL CONTINUED FROM A1

took place last Saturday, Apr. 24. This was the second creek clean-up this year. “Nearly 100 volunteers showed up bright and early Saturday morning…including our own Mayor Heather Moreno, Councilmembers Charles Bourbeau, and Susan Funk.” The event was sponsored by the city and Atascadero Bible Church. According to the city’s public works operations manager, a total of 25 cubic yards of trash was picked up and hauled away in Waste Management donated dumpsters. The next North County Earth Shine clean-up is scheduled for May 15 in Paso Robles. For more information, visit earthshineorg.com. Also, on Saturday was this year’s virtual “Brew at the Zoo” event. Due to COVID-19 recommended guidelines, the event was virtual. Rickard shared that the event was a “big success,” participants experienced a virtual beer festival that was broadcast live from the zoo. Over 325 tickets were sold, $2500 was raised on Saturday with the Meerkat challenge, and the overall total raised for the Charles Paddock Zoo

was over $20,000. Next, Rickard shared that Mr. Putters Putt Putt will be the new stewards of the Atascadero Watercraft concierge at the Atascadero Lake. The new name will be “Mr. Putters Paddle Boats.” They are looking to provide some new activities at the lake including, peddle bike rentals and games like Jenga, Gemstone Mining, and Corn Hole. Mr. Putters is planning to be open roughly around May 15 and will be offering food and beverages in addition to paddle boats. The 4th annual Atascadero City-Wide Yard Sale is scheduled for Saturday, Jun. 5, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. People can sign-up to get placed on the map by visiting atascaderoyardsale.com or visitatascadero.com. Over 125 yard sales are planned to participate around the city, and all proceeds go to support the Joy Playground. The last update that Rickard announced is that the 2021 summer concert series will be back this year and in person. The concert dates will be from Jul. 24 through Sep. 18 at the Atascadero Lake Bandstand from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. As always, it is free to the public. For band and event details, go to visitatascadero.com. Mayor Moreno said, “thank

game he loved, his teammates and friends in the Crushers organization put their heads together and came up with a plan to raise money for some new equipment and landed on a lemonade stand. The next day, Monday, Apr. 5, a group of kids grinning ear-to-ear with handmade signs waved over their heads, and decent lemonade in their pitcher made their way out to the corner of Rolling Hills Drive in Paso Robles. Quickly, the residents of Paso Robles began pulling up and donating money, far more money than the average cost of a cup of lemonade. Some gave $5, some gave $10, and then one local resident decided to put a post up on social media, and suddenly the funds began to pour in. After just a few hours in the sun with some lemonade and a Venmo account, the Crushers raised $770. However, the generosity

church, suggested, why not build a farm? With the help of a grant from the Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists, the farm started with one hoop house, a small greenhouse, and some outdoor row crops. In 2020 the farm was ready to open to the public, just a month before the pandemic shutdowns. But amid pandemic lockdowns and woes, the Templeton Hills Farm became a place of peace for many people. Steve Mulder, a regular at the farm (and avid lover of microgreens), said, “God has blessed this place--this is not here to make money, this is not a commercial operation. This is a community operation.” Giese, who now manages the farm, happened to have a passion for gardening already. For the past ten years, he, his wife, and children have loved gardening together as a family hobby. “We love being outside and harvesting, getting your hands dirty. It’s an awesome experience for kids, for the family,” said Giese. For Giese, growing their food was one thing, but introducing his children to life’s hard work and seeing their rewards come harvest time was something quite special. Growing one’s food is a lost art that did seem to develop some traction during 2020 lockdowns. Giese hopes to inspire his children and others to get involved with farming and reignite the age-old trend. “I want to get kids and people, the younger you, Rachelle, very much looking forward to the concerts in the park… a nice safe outdoor activity for all.” Following the city manager report, Mayor Moreno moved the meeting on to the community forum, which had received two letters directed at the Community Choice Energy that were moved to public comment during the discussion of Agenda item C1. Geoff Auslen of Glenn’s Repair and Rental addressed the council during this time about his shop, as well as others were vandalized over the weekend. “My business was vandalized over the weekend by somebody shooting something at the glass and causing thousands of dollars of damage along with other businesses in town. I do want to give want to give Atascadero Police Department a verbal accommodation from me as a business owner; I was not even off the phone with dispatch when they arrived. And the great work by Handler Haul in being able to… take the photos necessary before the whole window dropped… in seeing where the hole entered. I can’t say enough about our police department for this weekend and how quick they are acting; hopefully… take the people to justice.

was far from over. Hearing about what had happened to Santos, Warstick Sports, a sports stick equipment company owned by former MLB player Ian Kinsler, Musician Jack White and his wife Sarah, whom the Crushers Organization recently partnered with, decided to make a donation of their own. “When Warstic partners with a team, we want a team with character. We care about their success on the field, but what they do off the field is most important,” Warstic Sports stated when asked about the donation. “And when I [Sarah White] learned about what the Crushers did for Colton, it made me and the rest of the Warstic team proud to have them representing us. They stepped up for one of their own; that’s the type of young men and women we want on our teams.” Warstic Sports donated equipment not just to Santos but to the entire team Santos plays on. Altogether, the lemonade stand raised

generation inspired in farming,” said Giese. Since the farm opened to the public, it has gained another hoop house, and more plans are in the works for expansion. A washing system for produce and a storage container for root vegetables like potatoes and garlic is something the farm is looking forward to. Mulder says their goal now has become to “Expand the footprint and the impact on the community. We want to keep broadening the impact.” Improvements and growth of the farm wouldn’t be possible without the outpouring of support it has received from the community and local businesses. Bay Laurel Garden Center donated 60 fruit trees to the farm, and another community member donated a beehive. Glenn’s Repair and Rental in Atascadero is also a big supporter of the farm along with Orchard and Vineyard Supply Paso Robles, Holloway Gypsum in Lost Hills, and many others. Every Sunday from 9 to 3 p.m., people come

Thank you” Auslen said. There were no presentations or public hearings, so the council moved forward to discussing agenda item C1, Draft Strategic Plan and Draft Action Plan Study Session. City manager Rickard started with providing the council a brief overview of the community study sessions. Which she then moved on to the staff ’s direction on the Strategic Plan Draft and the Draft Action Plan detailed outline. A full report of the discussion to follow in a separate article. Following the discussion, Rickard moved on to the COVID-19 update announcing that the county moved into the Orange Tier of the California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Rickard explained with the Orange Tier that goes into effect on Wednesday, Apr. 28; it will allow many new things to be able to start again, such as welcoming the first bride to the Atascadero Lake Pavilion. Read SLO County Advances to Orange Tier on A5 for more details. Councilmember Funk asked, “Rachelle, I don’t know if you happen to know this… I am interested in if we have an idea of what proportion of our city employees who interact regularly with the

to the farm to volunteer their time. Throughout the week, Giese manages the farm and creates a list of chores to be done on Sunday. After produce has been harvested, volunteers get to take home their portion of goods. Sometimes extra items like grapefruit are donated and added to everyone’s pick up of goods for the week. On Sundays, volunteers operate the Farm Stand, which sits by the curb of the farm parking lot where bundles of produce are often available for pick up! The Templeton Hills Community Farm is open to all members of the community. Anyone can offer their time or give a donation in exchange for harvested goods, but no one in need will ever be turned away. “I’m just impressed by how God has led in the process of this--I’m really grateful to be a part of it for that reason,” said Mulder. Page said, “Seeing what has happened over the past year in the midst of a pandemic gives us a lot of excitement for what can take place to benefit the community through the farm in the coming year!” Join the fun at the farm and contact Matt Giese at (805)458-7808 or email at templetonhillscommunityfarm@gmail.com or swing by on Sunday! The farm is located at 930 Templeton Hills Road in Templeton above the parking lot between the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and school, just look for the Farm Stand!

public have been vaccinated.” Rickard replied, “we do not know… we cannot ask health information necessarily… I can tell you anecdotally it’s a significant portion that are either completely vaccinated, have had their first shot, or have had their second shot and waiting… so we have a lot of people throughout the process… in that…

we don’t have exact numbers.” Mayor Moreno moved on to the final agenda item, which was council announcements and committee reports. The next Atascadero City Council meeting is scheduled for May 11. To view this meeting or register for one upcoming visit Atascadero.org.

$2513, and rather than buying a single bat for the young eight-year-old who lost his stuff, the Crushers were able to get him all new equipment and new uniforms and apparel. “It is a one-of-a-kind community,” Central Coast Crushers founder Chad Schoenthal told the Paso Robles Press. “Paso has that true sense of community, and it just continues always.”
