guest at Hollis’s RISE Women’s Conference. Seeing and meeting Hollis, the one who started it all, was an incredible experience for Twisselman. She told The Atascadero News, “I did get to hug Rachel Hollis [backstage], and I just burst into tears. It’s a really special moment when you get to meet someone who has made such a huge impact on your life and be able to say thank you, and that was an incredible and emotional experience for me.” As if this day couldn’t have gotten better for Twisselman, another exciting thing happened.

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The County Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday, Apr. 6, for a regularly scheduled meeting. The meeting opened with approval of the consent agenda and then an update from Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Director, on the current state of COVID-19. The county remains in the Red Tier, as the case positivity rate is currently around 6.2 and needs to be at 5.9 in order to move to the Orange Tier. Borenstein addressed the slight uptick in cases which she states may be a reaction to St Patrick’s day. While there’s no hard data to show this, historically, holidays have created an increase in cases. For the full COVID-19 update, read the “SLO County Remains in Red While 16 Counties Move to Less Restrictive Tier” story on A5. Vaccinations will soon be open to anyone 16 and older, and currently, county-wide, there have been 142,571 doses administered. The next item was the submittal of April 2021 as “Month of the Child” and “Child Abuse Prevention Month,” as well as “San Luis Obispo County Crime Victims’ Rights Awareness Month.” Next was a submittal by the Sheriff-Coroner to proclaim the week of Apr. 11 to Apr. 17 as “San Luis Obispo County National Public Safety Telecommunications Week.” “Even though they’re not on scene, they experience that more than people truly realize...Hats off to everyone who works behind the radio and phones in any center. They deserve a lot more recognition than they get on a daily basis; I’ll tell you that,” Sheriff Ian Parkinson said regarding the telecommunication employees. Following that, the Board discussed item 24 to hear from Tim Reed from Pozo Management Group for an appeal of the Planning Commission’s denial of a Conditional Use Permit to establish 2.98 acres of outdoor cannabis cultivation. Supervisor Debbie Arnold recused herself from the discussion because of personal property in the area.

iah Twisselman, Carrisa Plains resident, made a guest appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Mar. 30. Before boarding a plane to a conference for the beef council, Twisselman picked up Rachel Hollis’s book ‘Girl, Wash Your Face.’ Then Twisselman had her ah-ha moment, if you will, after having to ask for a seatbelt extender on the plane for the first time. At the time, Twisselman weighed 285 pounds. But since her ah-ha moment, Twisselman has lost 122 pounds and become a full-time life coach. Talking about Hollis’s book, Twisselman said to Clarkson, “Reading her book, her words were like getting slapped in the face, in a good way. It was kind of a hard pill to swallow. Her book talks a lot about taking massive ownership of your life, and I had realized I had been playing the victim in my life in a big way.” Twisselman said the whole experience happened very quickly. She was invited to be on the show one week before taping but had no idea the surprise they had in store for her. During the show, Clarkson surprised Twisselman by introducing her to Rachel Hollis, the author of the book that started Twisselman’s journey.

Getting to meet Kelly was incredible—she was so lovely, and it was the most incredible surprise that they surprised me with Rachel Hollis on the show.

Kaschewski Leads Eagles to Victory Over Arroyo Grande Kaschewski rushes for 5 touchdowns and 350+ yards By CONNOR ALLEN TEMPLETON — The Templeton Eagles made a statement on Friday night when they dismantled Arroyo Grande to the tune of a 49-12 beating, moving to 3-0 on the season and 1-0 in the Mountain League. Friday night’s victory over Arroyo Grande was Templeton’s first in school history and something that the boys on the team worked hard for, and it showed on the field. “The week [of preparation] was rough,” senior quarterback Tyler Kaschewski said after the game. “We practiced our [butts] off all day and all night and in the mornings just to come out here. Templeton has never beaten AG; it was just an honor to be able to play for coach Crow and to be able to get this win for him.” It is no secret that the Eagles have the best offensive weapon in the county lined up in their backfield, but on Friday, he played like a man possessed, rushing for 372 yards and five touchdowns on 21 carries. The

senior superstar ran for not one but two touchdowns over 80-yards on the night, including the final nail in the coffin where he sped down the visitor’s sideline for a 92-yard house call. Templeton controlled the game from the very first whistle and never looked back. This was the Eagle’s first game in the Mountain League since they were moved up following an undefeated league season last year in the Ocean League. The Eagles were motivated to prove they belong and did so in a major way. “I don’t know about all that [belonging in the Mountain League], but I do know this. The kids played really hard tonight and played really smart football for the most part,” Templeton head coach Don Crow told the Atascadero News. “I am telling you right now. We have some special seniors. If you watched the game tonight, you can tell that we have some special seniors, not only at quarterback and running back but our offensive line and our defense, but our quarterback is special. If we can keep him healthy and upright, we are going to be good.” While Kaschewski certainly had the splash plays and will get most of the atten-

tion from Friday’s game for his incredible rushing numbers, the other seniors made the performance possible. The Templeton offensive and defensive lines controlled the line of scrimmage all night and brought the fight to Arroyo Grande’s big guys, which is something that was unfathomable just a few years ago.

“That is the thing, AG doesn’t play big guys both ways, but we kind of have to because of the size of the school, but our linemen are players. Chase Richards, Anthony Fischer, Mason Barbour and Dominick Mackle, those kids are all seniors,” Crow explained. “They took it upon themselves to really step up, and they worked really hard

in the offseason. Every chance we got to grab a dumbbell or be outside when it’s 28 degrees and workout, they did it, and my hat is off to them because they persevered through all this, and it is really their deal.” The offensive line didn’t only open up holes for Kashchewski but also his running mate Josh Berna who was overshadowed despite running for 161 yards and two touchdowns of his own. Templeton has been completely unstoppable this year, scoring at least 39 points in each of their three games, and has outscored their opponents by a combined 96 points. However, their work is not done as they will play their first road game of the season this Friday when they faceoff with undefeated St. Joseph, which is unquestionably the game of the week in the Central Coast. Friday’s game against St. Joseph will more than likely decide who gets to wear the Mountain League crown this season, and is looking like it will be a game full of fireworks as both teams can score from anywhere on the field. St. Joseph has the ability to pass like no team Templeton has faced this season but was forced to play with a backup quarterback last week as their starter went down with an injury.

AHS Senior Girls Battle On Senior Night Greyhounds end strong season against San Luis Obispo By CONNOR ALLEN

ATASCADERO — Atascadero girls tennis ended their regular season on Thursday afternoon in front of a spread-out collection of friends and family and said goodbye to four seniors that have been the heart of the program and led the team through a successful, pandemic-delayed season. The Greyhounds did not win their final match, but it didn’t seem to matter much as the girls were all excited to celebrate their seniors Brynn McKenzie, Haley Long, Isabella Sanchez, and Micaela Sanchez. Following the singles matches against the San Luis Obispo Tigers, the Greyhounds came together to celebrate their four girls before moving on to doubles action. SLO won the match 6-3, but it didn’t put a damper on anyone’s spirits as the Tigers have proved year in and year out that they are the class of the Mountain League. The Greyhounds finished the season with a record of 7-4 in an incredibly competitive season from all the league teams. While SLO finished as the top team, Atascadero, St. Joseph, and Arroyo Grande each had strong seasons of their own. The St. Joseph Knights swept the Hounds in two matches this year but were in turn swept by

Arroyo Grande, who Atascadero swept. “It was really competitive this year. It has been a lot of fun. I just think that a lot of the girls that were out competing, just in general this season— you kind of have to want to be out there,” AHS head coach Lori Bickel told the Atascadero News. “You are not really doing it because it is kind of fun because all the fun parts are gone. We aren’t able to stop for meals on our way home from road trips anymore. We have to play in masks whenever possible; we have to practice in masks, so you know a lot of the really fun stuff is gone so you kind of have to love tennis and I think that was the difference with the team this year was just that it was a group of girls that are dedicated to their game. It was pretty cool, probably never had a team with more heart than they do because of what they have been through and just the difficulties of COVID and school and everything else.” Working hard is something this Greyhounds team did better than anyone else in 2020-2021. Despite not having a court on campus to call home, many of the girls on the team decided to take lessons and focus on their game during the extended offseason, and it showed in their game. Greyhound no. 1 player Brynn McKenzie set a perfect example for everyone on the team this year when she dedicated herself to tennis, wanting to become the team’s top option in her senior season. After months of lessons and hard work,

McKenzie accomplished her goal and played as Atascadero’s no. 1 player this season, often going toe-to-toe with each team’s best players in the county. While McKenzie was the Hound’s most talented player, their most valuable was another one of their seniors in Bella Sanchez, who played anywhere the team needed her and won more matches than anyone else. “Brynn [McKenzie], at the end of last year, decided to dedicate her game to tennis and started taking lessons and doing everything she could do to up her game and earn the no. 1 spot on our ladder,” Bickel explained. “Isabella [Sanchez] came out, and while she really didn’t have the formal instruction, she had the determination and competitiveness and nerves of steel to go undefeated in some really, really tough matches. If you look back on our scorecards, even in some of the matches we lost overall, often she won in singles and doubles, or one or the other. The seniors really showed everyone the way, and I think the rest of the team has a real love of the game thanks to the leadership of the seniors this year.” It is still unclear if there will be CIF playoffs or a league tournament for the girls this season, but if it were to happen, it might take place following the boys season, which is set to kick off in just a few days. For more information on the girls tennis playoffs, make sure to follow The Atascadero News.

Weekly North County Prep Sports Update Volleyball joins prep sports line-up making it the eighth sports season actively underway By CONNOR ALLEN ATASCADERO The Atascadero Greyhounds football team made a trip down to Santa Maria on Friday night looking for their first win of the season but were defeated handily by the Saints, 35-0. The score seemed more lopsided than the game was; through two quarters, the Hounds only trailed by seven points, but Santa Maria scored 21 in the third quarter to put the game away. Atascadero used two different quarterbacks on Friday night and a whole host of running backs as they look to break out of their offensive slump. Both Jarren Fischer and JohnTae Jackson completed passes through the air but only for a combined 68-yards. Junior Aiden LeMoine led the way on the ground with 49-yards rushing on 14 carries; sophomore Cole Tanner added 48-yards on 13 carries. Altogether Atascadero rushed for 141 yards on the evening. Atascadero will be looking for their first win of the season on Friday night when they welcome Morro Bay for their home opener. The Atascadero girls softball team rolled to a blowout victory on Tuesday afternoon, defeating the Nipomo Titans 11-1 on the road to earn their second victory on the young season. So far this year, the Hounds are 2-3 with wins against the aforementioned Titans and Mission Prep. Saturday, the Hounds traveled to Santa Maria for a doubleheader with a strong St. Joseph team but were stifled by strong pitching, losing both games 7-3 and 9-1, respectively. The Atascadero Boys baseball team is still in search of their first victory on the season and will look to get it this Saturday when they host Mission Prep, who are also winless so far this year. The Hounds opened the season with a pair of losses to Morro Bay in a doubleheader and have since played three Santa Maria area teams in Nipomo, Pioneer Valley

and Santa Maria. The Atascadero Greyhounds girls volleyball team kicked off their season on Mar. 30 and split their first two games of the season against Nipomo. Atascadero lost the first game 3-1 at home but rallied in a close game the next day to win 3-2 TEMPLETON The Templeton Eagles softball team has begun their season on a roll, much like the baseball team, and is 3-1 so far this season. Templeton has beaten Pioneer Valley, Nipomo, and most recently, their rivals, the Morro Bay Pirates, this season, with their only loss coming in a heartbreaker to the Arroyo Grande Eagles, 6-5. Both the offense and the defense have been clicking in the early part of the season for the Eagles, as was the case on Saturday when they defeated the Pirates 5-1. Alyssa Moore got the start in the circle for Templeton and pitched four fantastic innings, giving up no runs and only a single hit with three strikeouts. Moore handed the ball to Charlotte Forniss in the fifth inning, who guided the Eagles home, giving up one earned run on one hit and recording four strikeouts. Offensively Templeton was led by three girls, shortstop Izzy Cowne, catcher Maddie George and Forniss, who each recorded two

hits and a single RBI. Templeton will look to move to 4-1 Wednesday night when they host winless Mission Prep. PASO ROBLES The Paso Robles Bearcat football team made a trip to Santa Maria on Friday night looking for their second straight win but met a prepared Righetti team that was able to force turnovers and fell 34-7. It was a bit of a sloppy game on both sides as the teams combined for six turnovers in just the first half. After two quarters, the Bearcats were only down 21-7 but could not mount a comeback in the second half. Paso Robles will host Arroyo Grande this Friday at War Memorial Stadium. The Bearcat baseball team is off to an undefeated start so far this season and is bringing the lumber every night as their offense looks to be one of the most potent in the Mountain League. Through only four games this season, Paso Robles has recorded 34 runs while only allowing 15 total. The Bearcats last played on Mar. 31 in Santa Maria and slugged their way to a 7-5 victory. Paso Robles got on the board early against the Saints thanks to a home run by junior Drew Wade, who is off to a boiling hot start this spring. The Bearcats scored a run in the first, second and fourth before

Santa Maria tied it up at three apiece. The Saints added a run in the fifth and sixth to take a two-run lead into the final frame, but the cardiac cats responded with a four-run seventh to come from behind for the victory. Paso Robles used three pitchers on the afternoon, Carson Turnquist (starter), Dylan Allison, and Anthony Garcia, who combined allowed seven hits, three earned runs, and recorded ten strikeouts. The Lady Bearcats softball team experienced their first defeat last week in a nailbiter against a strong St. Joseph squad. Wednesday’s game was an absolute rollercoaster that came down to the final half-inning. After trailing 8-4 through five and a half innings, the Bearcats scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game at 8-8. Unfortunately, however, the Knights tallied one run in the seventh, winning 9-8. The Bearcats are still without their fireballer Jaiden Ralston but have been on fire offensively, and Wednesday was no different as the girls combined for 15 total hits. Paso Robles will look for revenge this Wednesday when they travel to St. Joseph. Active North County Prep Sports currently underway; Baseball, Softball, Football, Soccer, Track and Field, Water Polo, Swim, and Volleyball.

LOCAL NEWS COVID-19 UPDATE

SLO County Remains in Red While 16 Counties Move to Less Restrictive Tier After release of updated Blueprint for a Safer Economy, Gov. Newsom announces plan “Moving Beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy” STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced on Tuesday, Apr. 6, that a total of 4 million doses of COVID19 vaccine have been administered to Californians in some of the state’s hardest-hit communities, increasing immunity where the state’s transmission rates and disease burden have been the highest during the pandemic. With this equity metric met, and because vaccines slow the spread of disease and serious illness, the state has updated the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Blueprint Summary as of Apr. 6 • 2 counties in the Purple (widespread) Tier • 22 counties in the Red (substantial) Tier • 32 counties in Orange (moderate) Tier • 2 county in the Yellow (minimal) Tier Blueprint tiers are updated weekly on Tuesdays. Find the status of activities in specific counties. With this update, 16 counties are moving to a less restrictive tier, although local public health departments may implement more restrictive policies than the state. Counties moving to less restrictive tiers include Contra Costa, El Dorado, Humboldt, Imperial, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa, Riverside, San Benito, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Joaquin, Siskiyou, Sonoma, Tulare, and Ventura. The updated tier assignments are effective starting Wednesday, Apr. 7. San Luis Obispo County did not meet the new metric and remains in the Red Tier. In the SLO County Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, Apr. 6, Supervisor Lynn Compton asked Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer, to explain why San Francisco and Los Angeles were able to move into the less restrictive tier and SLO County did not. “I don’t have a really good answer to that. I will say that we hit on a very interesting time, I just came back yesterday from San Fransico for a short weekend get-a-way, and I would say it was very obvious to me--San Franciso has actually had better metrics than us as has much of the Bay Area they are not open for business in the way that we are. They are allowed to be... much more checking at the door how many people can be in the store. Many of the restaurants, many of their businesses, even though they are allowed to be open, are closed. So I would just offer that not

that I am in any way suggesting that we have that type of process in our County in terms of lockdown, but I do think that different parts of the state have actually had different levels of enforcement or considerations for businesses and you know it comes at a price. So I am certainly aware of that. Southern California, Orange County, Los Angeles County, I am at a loss as to why we and others around us are doing better...all I can say is we need to double down on what we know works. So if you are getting together with family that are unvaccinated, either don’t do it or wear a mask indoors or continue to gather in those small numbers brief, outside... get tested if you have been exposed, all of those same things... because it really does work. So we can get there, we will get there, but we need to not give in to pandemic fatigue at this point so that we can make that next move forward,” Dr. Penny Borenstein said. For the full report from the meeting, read the “Supervisors Discuss Land Use Permits and Water Issues” story on A1. In the updated Blueprint, the CDPH added an additional metric that will be reviewed before a county moves to a more restrictive tier. During the weekly tier assessment, if a county’s adjusted case rate and/or test positivity has fallen within a more restrictive tier for two consecutive weeks, the state reviews the County’s most recent 10 days of data – and now, also hospitalization data, to determine if there are signs of improvement to indicate the County can remain in the less restrictive tier. Then later the same day, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California had surpassed a significant milestone by administering more than 20 million vaccine doses, including 4 million in the state’s hardest-hit communities, and with hospitalizations continuing to steadily decline, the state is ready to move into the next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic recovery, by “moving beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.” On Jun. 15, California will fully open its economy if two criteria are met: • If vaccine supply is sufficient for Californians 16 years and older who wish to be inoculated; and • If hospitalization rates are stable and low • Everyday activities will be allowed, and businesses can open with common-sense risk reduction measures, including encouraging all Californians to get vaccinated and mandating masking, to prevent illness and promote health. The state will continue contact tracing and testing to detect cases early and contain spread of the virus. The entire state will move into this new phase as a whole. The state will monitor hospitalization rates, vaccine access and vaccine efficacy against variants, with the option to

revisit the Jun. 15 date if needed. “California has made incredible progress controlling the spread of COVID-19 by staying home, masking, and getting vaccines out quickly to Californians in every corner of the state, including in those communities hardest hit by this pandemic,” said California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. “In order to take the next step, we must continue to do our part to keep this momentum moving in the right direction, and that means continuing to wear a mask and ensuring everyone who is eligible gets the vaccine.” When California fully reopens the economy, the Blueprint for a Safer Economy will end. However, common-sense health measures such as masking will remain across the state. Testing or vaccination verification requirements will remain in relevant settings. All sectors listed in the current Blueprint for a Safer Economic grid may return to usual operations in compliance with Cal/OSHA requirements and common-sense public health policies in place, such as required masking, testing, and with vaccinations encouraged. Large-scale indoor events, such as conventions, will be allowed to occur with testing or vaccination verification requirements.

Vaccine Eligibility Update San Luis Obispo County Public Health announced on Mar. 31 that about 60,000 additional SLO County community members – those age 30 and older – are now eligible to sign up for the County’s COVID-19 vaccine registry. Some vaccine providers that receive their vaccine allocation from the Federal government rather than the County, such as Costco, CVS, and Rite Aid, might not offer vaccines to this group right away. However, anyone in the County’s registry will be on the list to get a vaccine appointment at one of the County’s three mass vaccination clinics. Eligible individuals can also check with local pharmacies and other providers who are now offering vaccines in SLO County. “For anyone who is newly eligible, the best way to get the vaccine in SLO County is to sign up for our vaccine appointment registry online or by phone,” said Dr. Borenstein. For assistance signing up for the County’s appointment registry, call the Phone Assistance Center at (805)543-2444 or (805)781-4280. Tracking Variants Multiple variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been identified globally during the COVID-19 pandemic. These genetic mutations are expected, and some emerge and then disappear, while others persist or become common. Most variants do not have a meaningful impact. Public health becomes concerned about a variant when it affects COVID-19 transmission, severity, testing, treatment or vaccine effectiveness. Get more information on the variants CDPH is currently monitoring. Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) As of Apr. 6, 448 cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) have been reported statewide.

GOVERNMENT

Carbajal and Laird Hold a Town Hall Virtual Meeting Cunningham was unable to attend the meeting with a lastminute engagement By CAMILLE DeVAUL SAN LUIS OBISPO — A virtual town hall meeting was held on Thursday, Apr. 1, to discuss and answer questions regarding the 2021 legislative session and COVID-19 recovery for San Luis Obispo County. The town hall meeting was originally meant to be hosted by Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, Congressman Salud Carbajal, and State Senator John Laird. Unfortunately, it was announced that Cunningham was unable to attend the virtual meeting due to a last-minute engagement. Carbajal started the meeting with an opening statement, “I’ve been working hard to ensure the voice of our Central Coast communities are heard loud and clear in congress during this challenging time. With the American Rescue Plan signed into law, we finally now have a national plan in place to vaccinate Americans to tackle this crisis--we

finally are making progress towards immunizing everyone who wants a vaccine. It looks like there is finally light at the end of the COVID tunnel.” He mentioned several projects he is working on, including plans for repurposing Diablo Canyon as a renewable energy source using offshore winds. Carbajal was also pleased to report his bill, the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act was passed in the House last month, “This bill designates over 240,000 acres of federal land in the Carrisa Plains National Monument and the Los Padres National Forest as wilderness, the highest form of protection and blocks any development in the region including oil and gas drilling.” Citizens could ask questions through the Facebook live comments or send in a question ahead of time. Carbajal and Laird each answered questions for what ended up being just under one hour. Any questions that were not answered during the live town hall will be receiving a written response. The last question asked was from a resident

in Atascadero, “What are your thoughts on finding common ground across party lines so things can get done for the benefit of all?” Carbajal was first to begin his response to the question, “You know I believe it’s imperative. I think our founding fathers and our founding mothers envisioned that it was perfectly fine to have two parties or multiple parties in our country and our congress and state legislatures. It’s okay to have debate and discourse of ideas and be passionate and discuss issues and differences, but at the end of the day, not demagogy one another, not be uncivil, and I think that lends itself to having mutual respect. And while you might agree with 60 percent, 70 percent of things, there’s always a certain amount of things that we can agree on that if we have mutual respect for one another, we will move solutions forward on those things that we do agree but to create an environment of hate, to create an environment of demagoguing and not having mutual respect for one another doesn’t create an environment that lends itself to collaboration and working across party lines.” Laird mentioned that they had hoped Cunningham would make it to the town

hall as Cunningham had planned. Both Laird and Carbajal provided examples of them showing bipartisanship, such as reaching out and introducing themselves to the opposite party members. Laird mentioned that working to be bipartisan isn’t easy, but it is a “key part of what we do.” Throughout town hall, questions were asked about the Pismo Dunes’ closure, repurposing Diablo Canyon, and the homeless crisis, among others. A resident from Shandon asked what can be done to address traffic on Highway 101. Carbajal said the solution is to invest in different transit options such as the Amtrak and look into widening the highway to enhance it. A question through Zoom asked what can be done in California to get better gun control. Laird responded by saying we need to have a discussion and scientific look at what can be done for gun control in California. Carbajal mentioned interest in renewing the expired assault rifle band, which he said is a discussion that needs to happen sooner rather than later, along with background

CRIME

SLO County Child Exploitation Case Leads to Suspect in Columbus, Indiana STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Tuesday, Apr. 6, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff released new information regarding a child exploitation investigation. The investigation began on Sept. 25, 2020, when Sheriff ’s Deputies were dispatched to a report of a suspected criminal act in Los Osos. Deputies learned that a minor resident of San Luis Obispo County was contacted through an online internet gaming platform, and lewd images were sent to the victim. An initial report was taken and ultimately forwarded to the San Luis Obispo County Counter Human Trafficking Team, a team

comprised of investigators from the Sheriff ’s Special Operations Unit and the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation, who assumed responsibility for the continuing investigation. As a result of the ongoing investigation, Detectives learned that an individual eventually identified as 20-year-old Jordan Fields from Columbus, Indiana was the person responsible for sending the obscene material. The San Luis Obispo County Counter Human Trafficking Team, in cooperation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation Field Offices in Santa Maria and Indiana, and the Bartholomew County Sheriff ’s Office, Indiana, continued the investigative efforts.

As a result of this collaboration, Fields was contacted and interviewed by investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Indiana) and the Bartholomew County Sheriff ’s Office on Nov. 13, 2020, in Columbus, Indiana. Fields was taken into custody and booked into the Bartholomew County Jail for charges surrounding child exploitation and possession of child pornography. Fields was eventually released from custody on bond in Indiana, pending further court proceedings in Bartholomew County, Indiana. Investigative efforts continued, and on Mar. 25, Fields was taken into custody by

the Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel in Indiana and is being held in custody on federal charges in the Southern District of Indiana. Fields has been charged with three counts of 18 USC 2251(a) and (e), Sexual Exploitation/Attempt Sexual Exploitation of a Child and one count of 18 USC 2252(a)(2), Distribution and Receipt of Child Pornography. The success of this investigation was made possible by the collaborative partnerships that exist locally between the San Luis Obispo County Counter Human Trafficking Team and the local Federal Bureau of Investigation field office as well authorities in the State of Indiana.

And if somebody needed a hand, a word of encouragement, a few dollars, or a smile and a pat on the back he was your man, as many times as you needed it, because he lived and breathed being the elder brother.

Critical Race Theory and Revisionist History offered in a new Elective under the Guise of “Multicultural America”

is rewriting American history from the viewpoint of the various ethnic groups. Revisionist history focuses on “Identity, race, racism and other forms of oppression” in America past and present. His book presents history from the viewpoint of the ‘oppressed’ versus the ‘oppressor.’ It narrows all of CONNIE PILLSBURY history down to the prism of race. And who is the ‘oppresCOMMENTARY sor,’ according to Takaki?

ical Legal Studies conferences of the late 1970s, which was a group of white, neo-Marxist, new left, counter-culture intellectuals who believed that American law and legal institutions tend to serve and legitimize an oppressive social order (Brown and Jackson p. 13). This Critical Race Theory, now proliferated through universities, government, and the corporate world redefines history similar to Marxism’s simplifying of history to a struggle between the “bourgeois” and the “proletariat.” It pushes for the destruction of institutions, the justice system, free-market economy, and orthodox religions. And anyone disagreeing with their philosophy is automatically labeled a racist or white supremacist. In the PRHS course outline, phrases are lifted directly from the CRT playbook, “Students will focus on how institutions, public education, legal systems, housing systems…have functioned over time to impacts groups’ oppression, identity, and resistance.” (Multicultural America Course Overview, March 26 Draft) So, who wrote the Statewide Ethnic Studies model upon which this course is based? It

was written by radical, left-leaning, young college professors who were educated under the influence of Takaki’s revisionist history and the CRT philosophies. These educators have succeeded in making ethnic studies courses a requirement to graduate from CSU. These are also the same educators who have organized a massive letter-writing campaign to all local School Boards to promote its use in high schools. The PRJUSD Board stated at the March 23 meeting they were unable to read all of the many letters regarding the proposed new ethnic studies elective. Were these letters supporting this course from local parents? No, none were from parents. All were from state college PhDs’, the self-proclaimed ethnic study ‘experts.’ The rationale for this course based on the Statewide model is to “deepen students’ civic engagement by understanding how identity, race and racism and other forms of oppression have been and continue to be profoundly powerful social and cultural forces in American society.” In other words, America is and always has been a racist nation.

Life Intelligence: Feeling Behind

VALENTINA PETROVA COMMENTARY

A

lmost everyone feels behind in their life. Even those you look up to and envy or admire. That’s because we are our worst critics, and we constantly compare ourselves with those who are ahead of us. The critic within tells

PATRICIA ALEXANDER GUEST COMMENTARY

I

think it’s fascinating to learn that fleas can actually be trained. Picture the little critters in a jar with a lid on it. At first, the fleas will jump up and down, bopping their heads on the lid. Ouch! Eventually, an interesting thing happens: They figure out they can avoid the pain if they just shorten their jump. Now the lid can be taken off because they’ll never try to leap so high again. Sometimes we humans are just like those fleas. Many people

you that you failed your dreams and expectations. Comparing yourself to others gives your inner critic-proof of your failure. Except, that’s not objective because no two people have the same life experiences and travel the same paths; therefore, you end up comparing apples to oranges. You will never know what someone else’s life experience truly feels like because you are not them. More importantly, we don’t all start from the same place with the same resources and support. Life is not fair, but it can be gratifying no matter who you are. There are three things you can do to improve both your situation and your mood.

The easiest thing is to stop comparing yourself with a critical eye. Admiring someone for what they do and have achieved could be a great learning opportunity. Success leaves clues. Look for them and adopt them. It will help you finetune what you are doing and get you closer to your goals. If you still feel compelled to compare yourself with others, try comparing downward with those less fortunate than you. And compare yourself now to yourself years ago. This way, you can appreciate your situation for what it truly is. Hopefully, today you are miles away from where you started years ago and in a much better place. If not, you will need

to give me a call. Second, appreciate the particular meandering path you took to get to where you are because it has afforded you a unique set of experiences, lessons, and skills. You can only be where you are and start from there in whatever direction you choose. Value even your regrets. At the very least, they keep you from making future mistakes. Finally, if you want more out of life, you’ll have to get it. You need a plan, resources, support, motivation, and you need to take action. Wishing may be entertaining, but if you want results, you need to take action. The weight won’t lose itself. Your career won’t progress

Why I Think You Can Write

think they can’t write because of some comment that made them feel criticized; usually, something said when they were young by a teacher, parent, sibling, or peer. That moment acts like that jar lid and causes pain. They decide they’re not writers and never will be – and they’ll never try again. Having been a writer for over 45 years, I have been dismayed to learn that there are more people than we realize who have this poor self-esteem about their ability to write. All it takes is being criticized or teased, being a bad speller or somewhat dyslexic, knowing someone else who is obviously gifted, or just not having the patience to rewrite

first drafts. Besides being sensitive to comments, we are also affected by another dynamic. We are receiving a subtle but constant message from our culture that talent is innate and obvious and thus cannot be nurtured into blossoming. After all, aren’t we the society of instant everything? Even children have accepted this false premise that we must be instantly good at something to pursue it. As a child, my brother was clearly gifted as an artist, so I was teased about anything I tried to draw. I stopped drawing. Later in life, just out of curiosity, I got some instruction. I was delighted to learn

I wasn’t bad, just slow. Now think about seeds. Even smaller seeds can grow into a vibrant plant, given sunlight and water, an accomplishment we accept as the seed’s nature. I maintain that it’s not the size of the seed of talent in us when we start. Rather, it is accepting that humans are creative by nature. Just like seeds, we all house a divine spark that can blossom in surprising ways if nurtured - and not crushed by self-judgment. In the long run, it’s as Henry Ford said: “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” Can you talk? Writing is the same as talking. Writing is simply words sculpted to a specific purpose

That rationale should scare any parent considering this course for their student. In fact, Paso parents should vigorously demand the Trustees reconsider this subversive course by writing the Board at info@pasoschools.org. Several states have proposals to ban the teaching of this quasi-Marxist critical race theory, realizing it has ‘no place in our classrooms,’ and will coerce kids to hate their country and hate each other. There’s just one word to describe this proposed elective: INDOCTRINATION.

DANIEL RICH

I

have seen posted on the Internet statements such as “the practice of staying in the present will heal you. Obsessing about how the future will turn out only creates anxiety, and replaying broken scenarios from the part causes anger or sadness. Stay here, in the moment”. On the surface, it is correct to state that, at this very moment, all you have is the present. This was the theme of the “Power of Now” book several years ago. I am not suggesting obsessing about either the past or the future, but just accepting the fact that we are, in fact, influenced by our past experiences. Those expe-

riences become part of us, part of our psyche. This becomes dramatically apparent if one recalls past traumas of any kind, such as an auto accident or illness. There are those who suggest that thinking positively or negatively about your life will determine what direction your life will take. This is basically an exercise in magical thinking. I suppose that this could be actually true if an individual is so pessimistic that they always anticipate the worst possible outcomes in any situation. I believe that a common sense approach to deal with stress is not to have an unduly negative or pessimistic approach of doom and gloom, but on the other hand, not to engage in the power of positive thinking,

which is the exaggeration of always putting on a happy face, regardless of the actual circumstances. Always smiling regardless or how one actually feels is unrealistic and an exercise of denial. I am suggesting accepting and dealing with whatever reality is facing you. Perhaps most importantly of all, is to attempt to both recognize and embrace your feelings, whatever they are. These feelings may include feelings of loss, or anxiety, or fears regarding the future. I also believe that it is helpful to be grateful for one’s blessings since even in times of stress, there is much to be grateful for. Some individuals believe that if they allow themselves to come face to face with their feelings, especially

if those feelings are intense, they are fearful that they could be destroyed by those feelings. I believe that the opposite is true- that being introspective will not destroy the individual but will actually be freeing. It is both denial and repression that has been associated with both impaired mental and physical health. While I am suggesting embracing whatever feelings you are experiencing, I am not suggesting acting out in a hostile or aggressive manner. I believe that those who believe that to reduce stress, one should pay careful attention to diet, exercise, and adequate sleep are all on the right track. Additionally, those who advocate including daily pleasures in one’s life are also on the right track. This is

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACTA LAWYER On 5/4/2021 at 11:00 AM, CLEAR RECON CORP, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded 3/2/2004 as Instrument No. 2004016008 of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of San Luis Obispo County,State of CALIFORNIA executed by: DAVID HURST, AN UNMARRIED MAN WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH, CASHIER’S CHECK DRAWN ON A STATE OR NATIONAL BANK, A CHECK DRAWN BY A STATE OR FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, OR A CHECK DRAWN BY A STATE OR FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION, SAVINGS ASSOCIATION, OR SAVINGS BANK SPECIFIED IN SECTION 5102 OF THE FINANCIAL CODE AND AUTHORIZED TO DO BUSINESS IN THIS STATE; IN THE BREEZEWAY ADJACENT TO THE COUNTY GENERAL SERVICES BUILDING, 1087 SANTA ROSA STREET, SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA 93408 all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: MORE ACCURATELY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1313 CROWN WAY, PASO ROBLES, CA 93446  The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of

the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is:  $374,144.13  If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. 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 094121-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 094121-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.

Records Made To Be BrokenA new Guinness Book record was set when an illegal alien driving a stolen EV (electric vehicle) made it from San Diego to Sanctuary City (San Francisco) in just two weeks, counting the time spent sitting at, or looking for, charging stations. Riot Erupts At DrugstoreFive people were killed and 25 injured as 35 motorists fought over the three charging stations outside a Target store in San Luis Obispo, California. Miley Cyrus, California’s governor and the center of a recall drive, said in a prepared statement that, “The lack of charging stations throughout the state resulted when leaders in Sacramento discovered, a little too late, that they could not produce electricity to fuel the muchneeded charging stations that fuel the cars without burning fossil fuels to produce the electricity in the first place. Oops.”

works well) • 3⁄4 tsp kosher salt • 4 tbsp unsalted butter • Small handful fresh Italian parsley leaves, minced • 2 tbsp minced fresh chives • 2 tbsp drained brined capers • 1 clove garlic, minced Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over surface of a baking dish large enough to hold the fish. Use your fingers to spread it to coat the bottom. Arrange lemon slices in a single layer, overlapping them slightly, in the dish. This makes a bed for the fish. Place fish, flesh-side up, on top of the lemon slices. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil on top of fish and sprinkle with 1⁄2 teaspoon of the salt. Roast fish until it’s opaque and the blade of a paring knife feels hot after inserting it in the center of the fish, 10 to 25 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. While the fish is roasting put the butter into a small skillet or pot set over medium heat. When it melts, turn off heat and stir in parsley, chives, capers, garlic, and remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon salt. Spoon butter mixture over cooked fish. Serve from baking dish. Include lemon slices when serving. Enjoy the weekend. Cheers!

Passing Time- Automobile enthusiasts are finding new ways to pass the time while waiting for their electric vehicles to charge. In what are being called “Virtual Car Shows” they are sharing photos of their 56’ Chevy’s and muscle cars from the 60’s sitting at home in their garages. On Maneuvers- When the California National Guard went on maneuvers with their electricity guzzling electric tanks and trucks, it caused a three-day power outage throughout the state. Some residents are still without power three weeks later. Oh, Those Charges!- With the cost of a Tesla now $350,000 and the price tag on a Prius approaching a budget-breaking $150,000 urban Californians are re-learning how to walk again. Ever since the state started charging for the electricity used at charging stations, the price per hour is in excess of $100 per hour. Now that the price of electricity is being borne by those who use it, one fill-up can cost $350 on what else but... a charge card.

enough to handle, remove peelings. Cut eggs in half lengthwise, and remove yolks. Put yolks in food processor, add mayonnaise, both mustards, lemon juice, hot sauce, and salt, and purée until smooth. (You can also do this in a bowl with a fork, but it will not be as smooth.) Season to taste with a bit more salt if needed. Use a small spoon to fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle with chives and serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a short time. Note: I sometimes slice stuffed green olives and place one slice on top of each egg for garnish or give them a dash of paprika. I often have to hide the eggs in the refrigerator before a party or they are eaten before the party even starts!

“Why God?” How did Joseph overcome this trial and deal with this perplexing and unanswered question in his heart? In Genesis 39:21, we have the answer: “But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy and gave him favor in the sight of the Keeper of the prison.” God’s presence comforted and encouraged Joseph and God’s mercy caused him to experience God’s blessing in his new environment. This is the key to enduring difficult trials: THE PRESENCE of GOD. We also know that God had a special reason for putting Joseph into prison. God wanted him to meet a fellow prisoner that would help Joseph get out of prison. Joseph didn’t learn about this for several years. Lessons to Be Learned.

1. Believers need to EXPECT to be unfairly treated in this fallen and sinful world. This is having a realistic perspective of life. 2. God controls all the circumstances that occur in a believer’s life. He has good reasons for all the trials that He allows to come into our lives. 3. God’s presence and power will give us endurance to mature thru trials without getting bitter and hateful toward those that mistreat or abuse us. God’s presence always manifests God’s Power: Ephesians 3:20.

The Road Less Traveled

Wineries of Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande

W

hile not the hidden-away paradise of Shangri-La in James Hilton’s famous novel “Lost Horizon,” Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande are two small wine appellations that wine adventurers have for so long passed by unawares. “People sometimes stumble in here on their way to Paso Robles or San Luis Obispo,” is a comment I heard from one tasting room staff member. The phenomenon may be changing, though, as this fog-veiled region, home to some two-dozen wineries, is finally gaining traction with wine aficionados. A sense of quietude blankets this bucolic valley cradled by the Santa Lucia range and Seven Sisters peaks and bookended by the appellations of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County. The region is filled with a rich history of old vine plantings, one of which actually got revived In the mid-1970s. Bill Greenough painstakingly restored an abandoned Arroyo Grande Saucelito Canyon is one of four wineries in Arroyo Grande appellation. A winery that prides itself in zinfandel has a conveniently located tasting room in Edna Valley, but I chose to meet with second-generation vintner Tom Greenough at his family’s historic vineyard and winery in Arroyo Grande. A long and winding drive through the canyon terrain was as remote as it gets in this rustic valley. “We are off the power grid,” mused Greenough when I finally arrived by way of two security gates. “We are running on solar and generators.” The 320-acre property, surrounded by forest-studded mountains, is home to a three-acre block of head-pruned, dry-farmed zinfandel planted in 1880, making it the oldest commercial vineyard in San Luis Obispo County. The ranch was part of an original Spanish land grant. “Dad grew up in the mountains and liked this spot,” said Tom of his father, who searched for vineyard property from Santa Barbara to Oregon. Between the late 1970s and ’80s, dad added six acres of zinfandel and a 1.5-acre block of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and malbec. An additional acre of zinfandel was planted in 2014 from the original old-vine cutting. Later at the tasting room, we savored the 2017 vintage of 1880 Old Vine zinfandel crafted from that threeacre old vine heritage vineyard, a juicy wine with silky tannins; the 2108 Estate zinfandel and 2018 Dos Mas, a fruit-forward blend of zinfandel and petite sirah. The 2018 old-vine carignan, sourced from Contra Costa County, was intoxicatingly herbal on the nose backed by impressive tannins. Nearby Talley Vineyards and Winery is as noted for its prized vineyards as for its produce. The Talley farm was established in the 1940s, with vineyard planting added in 1982. Third-generation Brian Talley takes justifiable pride in the family’s signature pinot noirs that are silky and lyrical with bright flavors and a firm structure and chardonnays expressing the vineyard’s calcareous soil and the maritime climate. Hailed as a master of viognier, John Alban was smitten by this white varietal with his very first taste of Condrieu (name of the wine and the township in France’s northern Rhône Valley) and thus began his quest to plant this little known variety at his Alban Vineyard in 1982. He soon planted roussanne, an even harder-to-find white, in the vineyard. More recently, Alban has added syrah and grenache to his portfolio of wines that are stunning and expressive of the hillside vineyard, which straddles the appellations of Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande. We tasted barrel samples that included the 2018 amphora-aged viognier and 2017 vintages of three distinctly different syrahs, the white pepper-laced Seymour, the smoky Reva, and silky smooth Lorraine.

The winery is not open to the public, but Alban wines are available through wine stores and restaurants. Edna Valley Along Highway 227, the historic townsite of Old Edna is a step back in time. A once-bustling settlement in the 1880s, with a stagecoach stop, a hotel, blacksmith, butcher shop, cheese factory, school, and three saloons, is now a draw for oenophiles. The former general store is now home to Sextant and Windemere Wine tasting room with a deli attached. Many of the barns and buildings still remain as a reminder of the past, along with two charming vintage farmhouses offered as vacation rentals. The historic 12-acre MacGregor Vineyard, planted in 1975, is the source of Windemere’s small production of chardonnay and pinot noir that takes me back to Burgundy. Windemere wines can be bought here but not tasted. However, I did savor Sextant’s delicious reds, the 2017 Calvario, a well-structured Rhône-style blend, and the opulent 2017 Kamal cabernet sauvignon, wines produced from its estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Center of Effort tasting on the scenic terrace Among the tucked-away intimate wineries, Centre of Effort and Tolosa stand out as modern state-of-the-art wineries, known for outstanding pinot noir and chardonnay. Center of Effort’s spectacular estate is set on a hilltop with a sweeping view the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. Before we sat down in the scenic garden for a flight tasting, winemaker Nathan Carlson led us on a barrel tasting in the cavernous winery filled with concrete egg vessels, steel tanks, and barrels. We sampled a few 2019s. “My job is to make complex wine that has a larger aging potential,” said Carlson as he guided us through chardonnays tasted three ways: the mineral version from steel barrel, the coconut-scented neutral oak-aged, and a spice-laden version aging in new oak. Afterwards, a flight of four superb wines encompassed two pinots and two chards. The 2017 Effort pinot noir rang with ripe blackberries, while the 2016 Center of Effort pinot was reminiscent of violets and layered with savory notes. A minerally 2017 Effort chardonnay made a sharp contrast with the 2015 Center of Effort, so rich and opulent. At Tolosa’s gorgeous terrace overlooking the vineyard, your tasting experience ranges from pinot noir to Priorat. A luxurious expedition into silky pinots and lively chardonnays is completed with a sampling of the wines of Perinet, Tolosa’s sister winery in Spain’s Priorat region. The 1772 single vineyard flight series took us through complex pinot noirs ringing with earth, fruit, and spice components and chardonnays that are exuberant with minerality and tropical fruit notes. The Perinet flight experience awakens your palate with bold and complex

vineyard (c.1880) when he founded Saucelito Canyon Winery in Arroyo Grande. Later, in 1982, Jack Niven planted the historic Paragon Vineyard and established the Edna Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area). There were other “firsts” in Arroyo Grande in the 1980s, such as Talley Vineyard’s plantings of pinot noir and chardonnay and Maison Duetz’s (now Laetitia) production of sparkling wine. John Alban made his mark by planting viognier at Alban Vineyard, a whopping 32 acres at a time when only 50 acres were planted in the world and none in North America. What makes the region special is its long growing season, cooled by the fog, kissed by the sun, and shaped by the wind. While this is exquisite pinot noir and chardonnay country, other varieties thrive here vigorously — exuberant albariño and pinot gris, fragrant riesling and gewürztraminer, finicky roussanne, and cool climate syrah.

blends of Spanish varieties such as garnatxa and carinyena blended with syrah. Belgium-born Jean-Pierre Wolff takes pride in his accomplishments at his namesake Wolff winery. He was the first to plant petite sirah and teroldego in the valley to go along with “the oldest chardonnay vineyard in this appellation,” a 45-year-old vineyard originally planted by Edna Valley pioneer Andy MacGregor. With minimal intervention and using native yeast, Wolff crafts classic and elegant wines in an Old-World style that include a cool-climate syrah, effusive of white pepper, and a silky petite sirah backed with supple tannins. Among the other charming and delicious watering Talley of Talley Vineyards. Photos holes in this viniferous Shangri-La, all within short Brian courtesy of Mira Honeycutt driving distances, are Baileyana, Claiborne & Churchill, Autry Cellars, Kynsi, Biddle Ranch, and Chamisal. Avila Beach Although Avila Beach wineries don’t fall in the Edna Valley appellation, they come under the larger San Luis Obispo County appellation. This is where veteran winemaker Mike Sinor and co-founder of Sinor-LaVallee winery acquired the 112-acre sprawling Bassi Ranch, a vineyard with a view of the Pacific Ocean. “Jump in the mule,” said Sinor pointing to a beaten-up jeep of undetermined vintage for a tour through these rolling hillsides, a hi-octane experience best described as Disneyland’s A ticket ride. Jean-Pierre Wolff of Wolff Vineyards. A mere 1.2 miles from the ocean, the 23-acre vineyard, rich with sandstone soil, is planted to pinot noir, chardonnay, grenache, syrah, albariño, and pinot gris. We experienced part of the portfolio at his Avila Beach tasting room, wines that ring with the true coastal expression: low in alcohol and high in acidity, showing freshness and minerality. The pinots are savory yet blushing with cherries, syrahs cradled with supple tannins, and white wines shining with bracing acidity. Just across the street, the bicycle-themed tasting room of Peloton Cellars offers tastes from all around the Central Coast. Its minerally albariño and floralscented Rosé are idea matches for local seafood bounty. Mike Sinor at his hillside Bassi Ranch. Among the reds, co-founder Trish Kesserling offered 2017 vintages of a silky pinot noir and an inky cellar-worthy petite sirah. Located along a rustic creek at Kelsey See Canyon winery, you’ll be entertained with dozens of peacocks cawing in the garden and sample a wide variety of beverages from sparkling cider co-fermented with chardonnay to bold zinfandels, syrahs, and the Big Kahuna cabernet sauvignon. The range also includes a citrusy albariño and a breezy Rhône style white blend. Get someone to let you taste the pinot as well. Then take a glass down to the creek and dip a toe in the water. Think of Shangri-La. Trish Kesserling of Peloton Cellars.

her backstage, she says, ‘wait a second. I just got the chills. Do you want to be a keynote speaker at my conference?’ And so not only do I get to go to her conference in Austin, but I’m going to have the opportunity to be on her stage and share my story at the conference, which is insane. Such an honor, and I’m so excited.” For the first time, the conference will be virtual, allowing more guests to attend. The conference will be held May 14-16, just a week after Twisselman gets married to her fiance Brent Burchett. Visit riseliveweekend.com for more information on the event. Twisselman is one of those genuine people whose energy is inspiring and empowering. She explains that she wants to give credit to everyone who has inspired her throughout her life. Now she is excited to be the person that others are looking to for guidance, the way Twisselman looked up to Hollis. “If you would have told me less than three years ago that not only would I be able to lose 125 pounds and finally love myself and my body again, not only would I be able to create a career that I didn’t even know was possible and become a successful entrepreneur and be on the Kelly Clarkson Show but I also get to meet the woman whose book was the catalyst to change it all I would have thought you were crazy and out of your mind.” But we aren’t out of our minds Twisselman, you really did accomplish all of that, and we can’t wait to see what else you do.

But the following day, Kyndal showed no interest in playing with cousins, had no appetite, and didn’t want to walk. That was when Kyndal’s mother, Raquel, took her little girl to the Texas Children’s Hospital, and their world flipped upside down. Within one hour of arriving at the hospital, Kyndal had a CT scan which revealed a tumor in the back of her brain. The following day, Kyndal went in for surgery. After six hours, Kyndal’s neurosurgeon and his team were able to remove a three-centimeter tumor attached to her brain. Unfortunately, two smaller tumors were located in Kyndal’s brain, and a third was found at the base of her spine. Within a few weeks, Kyndal will go through two rounds of radiation and chemotherapy as treatment for the remaining tumors. Oncology results showed Kyndal has medulloblastoma, the most common malignant tumor found in children. Texas Children’s Hospital is the largest children’s hospital in America. Their website reads, “For 12 straight years, we’ve also been recognized as one of the best by U.S. News & World Report. This year, we’re ranked #4 overall and in the top five in seven specialties—including #1 in pediatric cardiology and heart surgery.” Cori Julian, Raquel’s friend since elementary school and fiance to her brother, said, “It’s a blessing that they

caught it in Houston, and she was able to be seen there--she couldn’t have waited. She was getting so sick.” A few weeks before making their trip to Texas, Kyndal was showing some odd symptoms. She began complaining her neck was hurting and told her grandpa that sometimes, everything was still dark when she opened her eyes. Raquel brought Kyndal to the doctor, who referred her to have an MRI done but that it wouldn’t happen until after their trip to Texas. But on their way to the airport, Kyndal began to throw up repeatedly. There were thoughts that Kyndal was lactose intolerant, with milk being her favorite drink, so maybe she was having reactions. Then after arriving in Texas and seeing family, Kyndal seemed drained and a little confused at times. “There was always a reason that made sense as to why she was acting like this,” said Cori. According to Kyndal’s doctor at the children’s hospital, the tumors had been growing no longer than a few months to a few weeks before the surgery. Kyndal’s road to recovery will be a long and strenuous one. Currently, she is going through physical therapy, where she is learning to walk, talk, eat and do all the normal things she was doing just a few weeks ago. Within a few weeks, Kyndal will be going through six weeks of radiation followed by a six-week break, and then she will start six weeks of chemotherapy. Depending on how Kyndal reacts to those treatments will determine where

The Planning Commission denied the project on the basis of lack of water, as well as stating that the project doesn’t fit the existing community. After being denied by the Planning Commission, the appellant reduced the scope of their project to reduce the size by 50,000 feet, removed the plan for manufacturing and commercial buildings, and changed the project to require zero tree removal. Additionally, the appellant showed that studies were completed, as well as an engineered water demand study determining that there was sufficient water for the original project before it was reduced. Tim Reed also brought up that this is an ongoing use of the property that started 16 years ago and operates in a near-invisible way. Medical marijuana has been grown on the property with no complaints from neighbors. Reed finished his presentation by stating, “We deserve the chance to prove we can continue to operate without

impact to our neighbors for the next five years.” Public comment on the issue ranged from messages of support for the project, the job opportunities, and the tax revenue to opposition against the project based on compatibility in the neighborhood, lack of water, and the increased traffic that would be brought to the small roads of Pozo. The Supervisor discussion was split with Supervisor Peschong and Chairperson Compton in favor of upholding the Planning Commission’s denial and Supervisor Gibson and Supervisor Ortiz-Legg in favor of the appeal. “I think the planning commission, while I have enormous respect for them, got this wrong.” Stated Gibson. Peschong made a motion to deny the appeal, which was seconded by Compton. The vote was split 2-2, which results in the Planning Commission’s denial of the project being upheld. The last item on the agenda was the update on the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin Ordinance, with

she goes from there. As of Mar. 31, Kyndal had a lumbar puncture to see if the cancer has spread to her spinal fluid. Luckily, the test results came back negative, meaning there is no cancer in her spinal fluid. Raquel, who grew up in Atascadero, is a single mother and currently works as one of the managers at the In-N-Out in Atascadero. Raquel graduated from Atascadero in 2005. During her senior year, Raquel was awarded Female Athlete of the Year. She had been on varsity soccer and tennis since her freshman year. After graduating high school, Raquel went to Azusa Pacific University on a tennis scholarship. “She is such a good mom—she gives Kyndal such a good life. That’s her world. They are best friends,” said Cori. To help Raquel with out-of-pocket expenses, the family has set up a Go Fund Me page. As of Apr. 5, $36,927 has been raised. The page has a current goal of $90,000. However, it has been estimated that Raquel will have to pay out of pocket more than $350,000 for current and future expenses. A little over a month ago, Kyndal was an energetic little girl. She was athletic and loved gymnastics and horseback riding. Kyndal, like many little girls, lit up the room with laughter. Kyndal is also resilient and strong. And we hope to see someday soon she be her happy little self again. Raquel said, “We have a long road to recovery, but the prayers, love, and

staff recommendations to approve a contract with Rincon Consultants for a total of $244,668, add one fulltime limited-term planner for 14 months, approve a corresponding budget adjustment in the amount of $266,388 for Fund Center 142, by a 4/5 vote and to direct staff to return with an ordinance amendment extending the expiration date of the Agricultural Offset Requirements to at least until April 2022. The Board heard public comment and then discussed the water issues, with Supervisor Arnold proposing a motion to use the crop water duty factor, keep the ordinance good until 2045, use Tier One and Two, use the Fugro map, bring it back for funding, and finalization of the Rincon Contract during the budget process, and bring the end of the ordinance amendment to Jun. 1, 2022. With this proposal, the look-back period would remain at the suggested six years. The motion was put to a vote and voted for with a 3-2 vote, with Supervisors Ortiz-Legg and Gibson voting against it.
