Atascadero Archer Isabella Otter Makes USA Archery Team ATASCADERO — Following her historic run through the indoor season in early 2020, local archer Isabella Otter competed in the outdoor archery circuit. She performed so well that she officially earned herself a spot on the USA Archery Team. When The Atascadero News and The Paso Robles Press last reported on Otter, she was coming off a completely dominant indoor

season that saw the Atascadero High School junior reel off two state championships, a sectional championship, and a national championship all in the span of three short months. Following her record-setting indoor season, Otter was surprised in May with sponsorship and a new bow from one of the world’s top companies, Precision Shooting Equipment (PSE), just in time to train for the outdoor season. Riding a tidal wave of confidence and

with new equipment in hand, the now Greyhounds senior set her sights a little higher and entered the second half of 2020, aiming for a spot on the USA Archery Team. With her goals set, Otter put in the work and preparation needed to achieve her dreams. First and foremost, she calibrated her new bow, which took nearly four months. She also wanted to approach this season a little differently than in years past. “I transitioned from a lot of physical training into mental training,” Otter told

over it every day, their families as well.” In October, a pumpkin patch and hay maze were created for residents to enjoy with families safely. The maze and patch were opened to the public for safe and distant trick or treating on Halloween. Residents could wave and smile from the window while still enjoying some human interaction in the safest way possible. “It brought together the community with the elderly,” says Jimenez.

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Wilshire Community Services is looking for volunteers to Adopt a Grandparent this year. Since 2007, Wilshire has been operating its Caring Caller Program for its seniors along the Central Coast. From Paso Robles to Nipomo, seniors are partnered with volunteers who provide friendly calls and visits. The holidays are always tough for seniors, and this year is sure to be an extra difficult one. With travel restrictions and families worried about transferring COVID to their loved ones, there is great potential for our seniors to feel lonely this season. Volunteers can also sign up for Wilshire’s Good Neighbor Program, which started in 2010, running errands, tasks and providing some transportation. Kelly Donohue, a Wilshire Public Relations Specialist, spoke about an experience she recently had while volunteering: “I picked up some groceries and some errands for them

There’s something for everyone, and it’s all meaningful for our clients.” Adopting a Grandparent could be as simple as picking up a prescription, checking in with them on the phone, grocery shopping, or safely chatting with them in person. “It’s actually incredibly daunting when you really think about the fact that it’s difficult for people in our own community to get their groceries, to get their medication,” says Donohue, “Just very basic minimum safety and health needs and so just being able to do that has been really really helpful for so many people.” Become a volunteer today to make check-in calls to our senior neighbors!

WEEKLY FEATURE

By CONNOR ALLEN connor@atascaderonews.com ATASCADERO — The Atascadero City Council came together the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving with a robust agenda, including discussion on cannabis in the City, the addition of pickleball courts at Colony Park, and construction at the Traffic Way and El Camino Real intersection. Council opened the management reports portion of the meeting with a presentation from Public Works Director Nick Debar on the proposed addition of pickleball courts at Colony Park. In December of 2019, the City Council approved changes to the Colony Park master plan and set aside space for three to four pickleball courts. At the time, Council did not direct City staff to appropriate funds but stated it was amenable to discussing a funding partnership with the Atascadero Pickleball Club in the future. Since the Council approved the changes, the pickleball club has begun fundraising and has raised over $42,000 in pledges, funding, and labor and materials donations. The four proposed courts would be built to the right of the existing outdoor basketball courts located behind the Community Center. Council was presented with several different pricing options based on the concrete’s thickness needed for the courts. The site still needs to have soil testing done, which is a key factor in determining the project’s ultimate cost. After much discussion by the Council members, they agreed to contribute $150,000 to the courts. The item was not voted on but will be brought back to the Council in the next few weeks after soil testing has been performed. The next order of business for Council was a regular hot-button issue in Atascadero — cannabis. In May of 2020, Council decided to re-examine existing cannabis ordinances looking for other commercial cannabis business land uses. Atascadero currently allows residents to purchase cannabis through delivery services located outside of the City. Community Development

MYSTERY

Obelisk Appears on Pine Mountain

Photo by Nicholas Mattson

Hikers flock for photos with the monument By NICHOLAS MATTSON ATASCADERO — On Wednesday morning, a similar monument appeared at the top of Atascadero’s Pine Mountain, and sparked similar patronage. Dozens of local hikers made the trek to the top of Pine Mountain to view the object. The three-sided obelisk appeared to be made of stainless steel, 12-feet tall and 18 inches wide. The object was welded together at each corner, with rivets attaching the side panels to a likely steel frame inside. The top of the monument did not show any weld marks, and it appears to be hollow at the top, and possibly bottom. The obelisk was not attached to the ground, and could be knocked over with a firm push. The Atascadero News estimates it weighs about 200 pounds. There was no visible evidence of how the object got to the top of the mountain, but daily hiker Ray Johnson said it was not there on Tuesday.

COMMUNITY

Paso Gives Spotlights 40 Groups That Support Community By BRIAN WILLIAMS PASO ROBLES — The COVID-19 pandemic continues to upend daily life. With the giving season underway, people looking for ways to help locally have a new online resource — Paso Gives. Paso Gives was launched by the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce on its #PasoStrong webpage on what seemed to be the most appropriate of days, Giving Tuesday. The #PasoGives campaign will be promoted throughout December. Forty groups that provide special services during the holiday season, such as Toys for Tots, Thanksgiving for Paso Robles, the Toy Bank of Greater Paso Robles, and Coats for Kids, are highlighted on Paso Gives tab at www.pasostrong.org. Each is featured in a humanitarian mosaic. The Chamber helped rebrand and put a digital spin on A Day of Giving Thanks for Those Who Give, an already long-standing North County gathering of like-minded community groups. Dr. Douglas Major, a Paso Robles optometrist, helped start it roughly 20 years ago. The goal was and continues to be to make the holidays brighter

for people. “About 20 years ago, I was asked to put together and coordinate and host an event we call the Day of Thanks for Those Who Give,” said Major in the introductory Paso Gives video. “At this breakfast meeting, we attempted to get all of the nonprofits particularly those associated with the holidays, service clubs, faith communities and civic leaders all in the same room to coordinate efforts to make the holidays wonderful for our citizens, but also just to collaborate and synergize between the specialties of the different groups. It’s turned out to be a very, very effective way of connecting.” Major explained that moving online was needed due to the pandemic and found the perfect partner in the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce. “This year, particularly with COVID, we had the opportunity now to share this with the public,” Major said. “I would hope that you’d spend a little bit of time, as a member of our community, and look at all the good that is going on. I think that it will gratify your heart like it gratifies mine.” Paso Robles Chamber CEO Gina Fitzpatrick said she was “ecstatic” when Dr. Major

reached out regarding this project. “Our community has a strong presence of nonprofit and charitable organizations and supporting their efforts is a great passion of mine,” Fitzpatrick said. “#PasoStrong strives to unify our community and collaborating with Dr. Major’s efforts was the perfect partnership to showcase the heart of our community through a digital platform.” Major encourages people to look at the videos and information about each group available at Paso Gives. Of course, he hopes people will take additional steps afterward. “Maybe in the process, you’d be able to locate some group that the message or the

mission meets your ideas of service,” Major said. “Be a part of the solution. Be a part of bringing unity to the community of Paso Robles.” Dr. Major and the Paso Robles Chamber know there are more than 40 area groups that help people. The Chamber wants to include as many charitable organizations as possible on Paso Gives. For more information on participating, email pasostrong@pasorobleschamber.com. “We look forward to growing the #PasoGives campaign and hope that you will help us support the good in our community,” Fitzpatrick said.

Thanksgiving for Paso Robles Serves Over 1,500 Meals

Drive-thru held Nov. 26 in St. Rose Catholic Church parking lot STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — Thanksgiving for Paso Robles reportedly served more than 1,500 meals at its drive-thru on Thursday, Nov. 26. In the previous 35 years, the meal was a sit-down dinner, complete with table cloths, fine China and a home-made dinner.

This year, the group made the free dinner available during a drive-thru from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church parking lot due to COVID-19 guidelines that do now allow for large gatherings. Thanksgiving for Paso Robles Chairman David Kudija said they had 229 vehicles drive-thru and provided 845 meals. Additionally, they sent 20 drivers around North County to deliver another 272 meals to shut-ins. After the drive-thru was completed, they took food for 75 meals to Paso

Cares and 400 meals to the El Camino Homeless Organization in Atascadero for their clients. “With so much being new, we had a hiccup here and there but overall it went fantastic,” Kudija said. The nonprofit group began cooking on Monday, Nov. 23, in the kitchen at Centennial Park. The dinner is usually served inside the banquet room at Centennial Park. Mildred Wilkins started the annual event and shepherded it for the first 20 years. People received a free Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings — over-roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing, mixed vegetables, candied yams, cranberry sauce, Thanksgiving for Paso Robles volunteers prepare to-go Thanksgiving meals for their drive-thru on Nov. 26 at St. Rose Catholic Church.

PASO ROBLES POLICE DEPARTMENT

‘No Shave November’ Hits Closer to Home This Year By CAMILLE DeVAUL PASO ROBLES — If you see a scruffy Paso Robles Police officer around town, please note it is for a good cause. And no, he has not given up on shaving because it’s 2020, even though that could be a pretty good excuse not to shave. Each year, the Paso Robles Police Department (PRPD) participates in “No Shave November” to raise cancer awareness. Each November, officers donate a minimum of $50 in return for a shaving exemption. This year, the cause behind “No Shave November” hits a little closer to home. Andrea, PRPD’s records clerk, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram, so officers throughout the department reached out to Andrea, asking how they could help. In a statement released by

PRPD, Andrea asked that the department donate any money raised to local cancer charities. “Always humble and thinking of others, she wanted all money donated by the officers to be given to two local organizations that have given her strength, support, and hope, during her battle.” Andrea asked that the proceeds be donated to Cancer Support Community and the Hearst Cancer Resource Center. For the last 15 years, Andrea has worked for the police department. She was diagnosed with breast cancer during the COVID pandemic. “We all took some meals to her for a while, she keeps us updated with what her progress is, and she seems to be doing better. She still is obviously battling the disease, but she is in good spirits every time we talk to her,” says Commander Caleb Davis.

Officer C. Hart shows his support by wearing a pink wristband and sporting his 5 o’clock shadow. Contributed photo

This year’s “No-Shave November” campaign will run from Nov. 18 through the end of the year. According to Davis, there are about 33 officers in the department, and they are all sporting a new beard. “I’m sure all the spouses are happy to have these Christmas Card pictures with beards in them now,” laughed Commander Davis. So if you see a scruffy officer out there, thank them for their help in fighting cancer!

STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Thanksgiving holiday traditionally marks the beginning of a busy air travel season. While pandemic restrictions are in effect across the country, the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport is an essential service provider and remains open and operational.

SLO County: Homeowners’ Property Tax Exemption Deadline Approaches STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — San Luis Obispo County Assessor Tom J. Bordonaro Jr. reminds all homeowners, disabled veterans and eligible nonprofit organizations that they may file claims for property tax exemptions. The Homeowner’s Exemption exempts up to $7,000 in taxable property value if the claim is timely filed or postmarked by Feb. 18, 2020, and up to $5,600 if filed late postmarked by Dec. 10, 2020. “If you received your Homeowner’s Exemption last year, and you still own and occupy the same property this year, you do not need to file again. Your exemption automatically remains in place,” Bordonaro Jr. stated. The Disabled Veteran’s Exemption is available to the exempt taxable value of a property owned by a veteran who is 100% disabled due to service-related illness or injury. The exemption might be up to $214,910 if timely filed postmarked by Feb. 18, 2020, and up to $207,746 if filed late postmarked by Dec. 10, 2020. To be eligible for either of the above exemptions this year, claimants must have owned and occupied the property as their principal place of residence as of 12:01 a.m. Jan. 1, 2020. Please call the Assessor’s office or visit the website for eligibility requirements and claim forms. Specific nonprofit organizations might be eligible for an exemption from property tax if they were using the property for exempt purposes on Jan. 1, 2020. For the full exemption, the organization must have filed or postmarked their claim for Church, Religious or Welfare Exemption by Feb. 18, 2020.

‘Your Own Backyard’ Podcast Releases Long-Awaited 8th Episode on Kristin Smart Case STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — In late September 2019, Chris Lambert, a Santa Maria native, started looking into the disappearance of Kristin Smart. Lambert, not a reporter by trade, developed a documentary that reignited renewed interest in Smart’s case by the thousands. Smart vanished over the Memorial Day weekend in May 1996. The 19-year-old Cal Poly freshman from Stockton attended a college party in San Luis Obispo and never made it home. Lambert’s podcast “Your Own Backyard” takes listeners on a personal journey through the intricate details of Smart’s disappearance and all of the events that transpired after. The podcast highlights the questions that remained when the media stopped reporting. In Episode 07, Lambert left the audience with a cliff hanger when he came across two vehicles that were linked to the case. Soon after, on

Feb. 5, The San Luis Obispo Sheriff ’s Department reported that two warrants were served; “Due to the high-profile nature of the investigation into the disappearance and whereabouts of Kristin Smart and to avoid the dissemination of misinformation, the Sheriff ’s Office is announcing this morning it has served search warrants for specific items of evidence inside four separate locations in California and Washington. Two of those locations are in San Luis Obispo County, one location is in Los Angeles County, and one location is in Washington State.” Then on Apr. 22, a new search warrant was served at the San Pedro home of Smart’s former classmate Paul Flores who, according to the SLO County Sheriff, “continues to be a person of interest in the disappearance of Kristin Smart.” The last search warrant came as another page in a renewed effort to close the 24-year old case. Now, after seven months,

Lambert has released the longawaited follow-up. You can find “Your Own Backyard” here, on your favorite podcast source. To get involved and stay up to date with new information, go to kristinsmart.org or join the Facebook group “Find Kristin Smart.” Editor’s Note: The statute of limitations, in this case, has expired on everything except for murder; anyone who comes forward with any information will not be charged with any crime.

SLO County Clerk-Recorder Certifies Presidential General Election County shattered its all-time turnout percentage at 88.35% STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Official Canvass for the Presidential General Election was completed and the election was certified by the County Clerk-Recorder on Wednesday, Nov. 25. The official canvass procedures include counting all vote-by-mail and provisional ballots turned in at the polls, balancing the number of voters who signed the voter service center rosters to the number of ballots cast, and completing a 1% manual tally to ensure the voting machines counted correctly. “The 2020 Presidential General Election is one for the ages,” said SLO County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong. “With unprecedented circumstances due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, all voters in California were sent vote-by-mail ballots and fundamental changes were made to precinct operations to maintain a safe voting environment across the state. Many other counties throughout the state suffered devastating wildfires and public safety power shutdowns. With much political unrest throughout the nation, this election was among the most divisive and the most closely watched in the modern election era. Yet counties, large and small, performed admirably despite the challenges they faced. I give all the credit to my staff members, fellow county departments for their assistance, consultants, and numerous election workers for making this election exceedingly successful.”

A record-breaking number of registered voters at 184,050, along with an unprecedented number of ballots cast at 162,615, the most ever in San Luis Obispo, the County shattered its all-time turnout percentage at 88.35%, smashing the previous record of 83.14% set in 2008. Currently, this puts San Luis Obispo among the top five counties with the highest voting percentage. San Luis Obispo landed in the top 12 counties during the 2012 and 2016 Presidential Elections. “I believe the additional efforts made to voter outreach and education helped move the needle on voter turnout,” Gong said. Significantly shifted was the number of SLO County voters voting by mail compared to those voting in person — 152,741 voted by mail (93.93% of voters), the highest number of VBM ballots ever cast in any election, while 9,874 voted in person (6.07% of voters). The final official results are posted at www.slovote.com. The final precinct by precinct results will be posted to this website in the coming days. OFFICIAL RESULTS PASO ROBLES Current District 3 Paso Robles City Councilmember Steve Gregory came in with 100% of the votes as he was unopposed for this year’s election.

By BRIAN WILLIAMS SACRAMENTO — Gov. Gavin Newsom said if new COVID-19 cases continue to surge, the state is going to have to take “much more dramatic, arguably drastic action,” most likely reimposing stricter stayat-home order for the purple-tier counties. On Monday, Newsom said the state is experiencing the highest rate of increase in COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. It’s expected to worsen in one to two weeks, as new cases resulting from Thanksgiving gatherings are expected to accelerate the surge. “If these trends continue, we’re going to have to take much more dramatic, arguably drastic action,” Newsom said. “If these trends continue, the potential for a stay at home order for those areas in the Purple… more in line with the stay at home order that folks were familiar with at the beginning of the year.” Fifty-one of the state’s 58 counties, including San Luis Obispo County, are in the most restrictive purple tier. A new lockdown would impact 99% of the state’s population. When

the state issued a stay-at-home order in March, it required people to stay indoors except for essential services and exercise. As for when, Newsom said that was being evaluated in “real-time,” before stressing people should not think in terms of weeks but days. Newsom and California Director of Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly said hospitalizations are critical in considering a new lockdown. “We are looking at intensive care capacity as the trigger for further action,” Ghaly said. The governor said projections indicated the number of COVID-19 patients in state hospitals could double or triple in the next month. Hospitalizations have increased 89% across the past 14 days. As of Monday, 59% of California health care system beds were occupied, and by Dec. 24, that number is expected to rise to 78%. There were 380 newly hospitalized patients reported on Monday across the state for a total of 8,578. SLO County has seen a surge in new COVID-19 cases, but hospitalizations have remained stable — currently, eight people are hospitalized in SLO, including one in intensive care. To prepare for the expected flood of patients, Newsom said the state would begin to make 11 surge facilities throughout the

FINANCIAL CRIME

Prosecutors: EDD Unemployment Fraud in Calif. Could Total $1 Billion By BRIAN WILLIAMS SACRAMENTO — Prosecutors from nine counties on Tuesday, Nov. 24, announced a “massive fraud” investigation involving inmates at California prisons and jails who successfully filed thousands of jobless claims during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fraud involves inmates at county jails and prisons falsely getting money from California’s Employment Development Department. EDD manages unemployment benefits. Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said it is believed the losses total hundreds of millions of dollars, up to $1 billion. Schubert said this “will be one of the biggest fraud of taxpayer dollars in California history.” The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office was not part of the team of prosecutors that held the hour-long press conference Tuesday. SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow posted the video and provided a statement on Facebook. “Many San Luis Obispo County crim-

inal offenders and prisoners are on the list, including Rex Krebs, who is on death row,” Dow stated. “This is massive fraud that harms every taxpayer in California. Those who negligently allowed this massive fraud need to be held accountable. Due to dysfunctional state government agencies and inadequate fraud prevention measures, early estimates are that hundreds of millions of dollars in unemployment checks have been sent to individuals in the names of inmates in California’s prisons and jails, including many prisoners serving life sentences or being held on death row.” State Assemblyman Jordan Cunninghan (R-Templeton) also weighed in on the investigation. “While thousands of Central Coast residents struggle to get their rightful unemployment benefits, death row inmates seem to have no problems defrauding the system and stealing undeserved benefits,” Cunningham stated. “Just when we thought EDD couldn’t be more flawed, they have found another way to surprise us. We need to fix EDD now and when the Legislature resumes session I will again be demanding

a full and complete audit.” Krebs was convicted of raping and murdering San Luis Obispo college students Rachel Newhouse and Aundria Crawford in 1998 and 1999, respectively. He was sentenced to death and housed at San Quentin State Prison. Authorities said that between March and August, 35,000 inmates filed unemployment claims while behind bars through the state’s Employment Development Department. Of that, 20,000 claims were paid out, totaling more than $140 million. Schubert said EDD fraud is running rampant through California’s prison system. “It exists in every CDCR prison. It encompasses every type of inmate.” Authorities said 135 California death row inmates received jobless benefits, including notorious serial killers like Wayne Ford and Cary Stayner, who are housed at San Quentin with Krebs. In August, $420,000 in benefits were paid to death row inmates. It’s unclear if the inmates could cash the debit cards they received.

“The murderers, and rapists, and human traffickers should not be getting this money,” said Schubert. “It needs to stop.” Inmates filed claims using real names, addresses and Social Security numbers, said Schubert. Some used fake names such as “John Doe” and “Poopy Britches.” Officials believe many of the inmates worked with people on the outside to defraud the state’s unemployment system and some may be part of organized rings. Prosecutors from San Mateo County, where there was a similar jailhouse scam, explained that in the government’s haste to ensure that Americans got their unemployment checks quickly during the COVID-19 pandemic, few safeguards were placed on EDD forms to avoid bureaucratic hurdles. Authorities in San Mateo County learned what was happening through recorded jail calls. In one case, an investigator listened to a call between an inmate at San Mateo County Jail and someone on the outside. They talked about the EDD scam that inmates were doing. State and local agencies will try and recoup the money, but there are limits on

how much they could do, given that some of the inmates are on death row or serving life sentences. “The practical reality is — when you’re talking about thousands of convicted felons engaged in this behavior, despite best efforts, the practical reality is the vast majority of this money will not be repaid,” said El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson. Schubert said the money would continue being sent to inmates if the state doesn’t regularly check for this type of fraud. Pierson said the fraud’s impact was on taxpayers and unemployed Californians who have not received their benefits because of the state’s backlog or who can’t navigate the EDD system as easily as some inmates. “They don’t know how to go through the process to get these things done,” Pierson said. “They [inmates] communicate with each other. They say, ‘this is how you fill the form out. This is the information you have to make sure is in there.’” The team of district attorneys said they created a statewide EDD Fraud Task Force and sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom asking for help.

Suspicions first arose around the August outages because they featured several oddities, events not seen in California blackouts during this era of occasional random power failures, also a time of planned shutdowns and brownouts by electric companies aiming to avoid liability for starting wildfires.

tric grid. But heads of the three public agencies most involved in keeping California’s power on all signed a damning self-evaluation, accusing themselves of poor planning. Those outfits included the state Public Utilities Commission, the state’s Independent System Operator and the state Energy Commission. No agency head offered to resign. There’s to be no falling on swords, as used to happen in some countries when authoritative public officials failed in their duties. This may be because the report looks like little more than a halftruth, at best. The blackouts came just two weeks before another state agency, the Water Resources Control Board (WRCB), was to give a final ruling on whether four gas-powered electric generating plants that use ocean water for cooling could remain open. The stated shortfall in August was about 1,500 megawatts at its peak. Those four plants, all of which run intermittently, can produce more than twice that much power. Neither the public

agencies involved nor the Southern California Edison Co. could or would say in the blackout aftermath whether any of those plants produced power during the outages or how much. That aroused suspicions as this info is not supposed to be secret. As it ended, the WRCB approved continued operations at most units of the affected plants, in Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Redondo Beach and at Ormond Beach near Oxnard. “It all looks highly suspicious,” said Bill Powers, a San Diego engineer expert on utility operations. Powers was instrumental about 15 years ago in getting the state to avoid becoming dependent on expensive liquefied natural gas, which an Australian firm had hoped to import in massive quantities through an offshore facility also near Oxnard. That was a clear-cut case of “blackout blackmail,” both the Southern California Gas Co. and Pacific Gas & Electric Co. saying California would experience extreme energy shortages without importing LNG.

ities, such as the Christmas party that was canceled, the Lake Walk, the Christmas displays on Vine Street in Paso Robles and numerous other events that bring folks together. I won’t miss the politics nor virus which has overstayed its visit. Atascadero got a taste of big-money outside interests this past election with a mayor’s race costing over $40,000 to win a seat that normally cost less than $10,000 (or less) for a newcomer. At the County level, there are strident calls to limit campaign contributions to much lower amounts (around $4,700), but that would simply clear the field for independent expenditures on negative ads (which occurred in this race) and independently wealthy candidates. Ordinary citizens would be easily and vastly outspent if artificially low caps were placed on individual campaigns. In politics, money is speech and the Supreme Court has ruled as such on behalf of selffunded or independent expenditures. Candidates depending upon the financial largesse of family and supporters would be outclassed

and guaranteed to lose. The current argument being made over the Board of Supervisors adopting a higher $25,000 contribution limit is a realistic acknowledgment of the modern world of campaign politics. Atascadero will face many problems in the coming years, not least being what kind of town will we become? Financial shortfalls continue to hinder provision of city services, especially police, the provision of local law enforcement being only a partially fulfilled promise since Atascadero incorporated in 1979. Many solutions are proposed, including expanding legal marijuana sales but research into other states and communities suggests that this may be more of a mirage than a solution. Pueblo, Colo., dramatically expanded its sale of marijuana in hopes of significant increases in tax revenue. They got a host of unintended consequences due to a product over 80% pure compared to the 3 to 6% purity of the 1960s. Kids don’t smoke just once a day: heavy users smoke the stuff five or six times a day, experiencing severe mental degradation.

happened, and a strong movement backed by many state legislators now seeks to ban natural gas appliances from all new construction to minimize greenhouse gas production. San Francisco this fall instituted such a ban. There have been several other instances of utilities attempting to influence public policy by threatening blackouts. No such threat ever materialized. But this time, there were rolling blackouts, even if they were short. It’s entirely possible there was also poor planning. But the timing and the fact the report to Newsom completely ignores the four gas-fired plants lends even more suspicion here. “The preliminary analysis leaves more unanswered questions than answers,” said Loretta Lynch, a former Public Utilities Commission president. Which makes future suspicions of further “blackout blackmail” inevitable.

I think Atascadero will have to decide if it’s going to take a page from the James Stewart classic Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” and decide if we’re going to become a honky-tonk “Pottersville” portrayed in Stewart’s film or something better. An era ended for our family as my wife Roberta chose not to run for re-election for the City Council. It’s time to pass the torch to a younger generation. It’s also time for family, friends, new adventures and reflections for both of us. Our oldest son has moved East to a new job and new home, friendships and memories nearly lost need to be renewed. Perhaps as a sign of hope, near December’s end, will be an astronomical phenomena viewed thousands of years apart: Jupiter and Venus will appear as one “star” in the sky, emulating the Star of Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, the first Christmas and the reason for the season. Merry Christmas to all. Al Fonzi is an independent opinion columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email him at atascaderocolumnist@gmail.com

Life-Long Lessons from Learning to be a Pilot

DAN RICH

COMMENTARY

A

s a teenager residing in West Los Angeles, I was a member of the Civil Air Patrol. Our unit had both a Link trainer and a Piper Cub. The Link trainer was used to teach instrument flying to half a million US military pilots in WWII. It was basically a stationary mock-up of a single-engine airplane made to teach the use of instrumentation as well as to create the sensation of really flying. It was the original flight simulator, decades later available as a computer program. Our Piper Cub was a small, lightweight plane, ideal for learn-

ing to fly. It only required only a short runway and could land where other aircraft could not. It was easy to handle and could land at relatively low speeds. I have previously mentioned how exciting it was to learn to be a pilot when I was a teenager. However, as exciting as it was, I want to focus on the life long lessons that I learned from my pilot training. One of the main things pilots are taught is to prepare a preflight checklist. This is the pilot’s log of both the tasks and inspections that are conducted prior to flight. The pilot checks everything on the aircraft, including the smooth operation of all controls, the tires, engine oil level, fuel amount in the tanks, etc. The pilot also checks the weather, contacts the

control tower and prior to takeoff, runs the engine up to speed, checking both magnetos, oil temperature, and pressure, etc. Making a list ensures that nothing is missed. Throughout my life, whether riding bicycles, motorcycles, sailing, driving sports cars, regular cars, or military vehicles, it has always paid off to check out the safety of equipment prior to use. Additionally, it has always been prudent to check things like tire pressures, fuel, oil and coolant levels, etc. Another thing that pilots are taught is never to be abrupt or violent when controlling the aircraft. This admonition also has a carryover when engaging in other activities, whether these are driving, riding a bicycle or motor-

cycle, or whatever. I believe it is safe to say that equipment lasts longer and more reliably when not treated violently. It is likely safer to be moderate. The last lesson is that of contingency planning. A pilot is trained to be constantly aware of his here and now situations and his surroundings. He is trained to automatically think in terms of “what if?” What does he do if he runs out of fuel in one tank? What does he do in case of engine failure? What are the in-flight start-up procedures? How does he prepare to carry out an emergency landing? Where might he land in case of an emergency? I believe that this approach can apply to other situations. What do you do if you have a

flat tire? What if you don’t have a spare? The list goes on and on. I believe that thinking in terms of “what if ” situations in everyday life helps reduce anxiety because you have a potential plan, making you better prepared to deal with unexpected life events. Until recently, I never gave much thought as to how the mindset of a pilot helped to deal with the vicissitudes of life. But, in hindsight, I believe that it has. I hope that you find my article interesting and perhaps thought-provoking. Your comments or reactions are welcomed.

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.

ave you noticed a “leaf blizzard” in your neighborhood? Driving down Graves Creek Road the other day was like driving through a snowstorm. Leaves were falling and landing in piles everywhere. Funny how that happens. I remember going into town on Santa Lucia Road and passing a house with two huge Mulberry trees out in front. The leaves were very big and very yellow. When I came home after about two hours, the trees were bare and the leaves made a yellow carpet on the ground. Amazing! I hope you ate lots of turkey and all that goes with a Thanksgiving dinner, but here are a couple of recipes to use that leftover turkey.

Make-Believe Land

s your guide, I’d like to welcome you on this tour of make-believe authoritarian figures. Please keep your hands and heads inside the bus as danger lurks around every curve. “Hey,” said one rubber-necker, “is that Santa Claus taking a knee over there?” “No, that’s Uncle Sam. Admittedly, both show a striking resemblance and they are both authoritarian figures who make big promises. Santa and Sam may say that if you’re a good boy or girl, you’ll be rewarded with all kinds of free goodies, but I speak from experience when I say that all you’re going to get from them is underwear and t-shirts. Uncle Sam looks a lot like Santa because, as a government employee, he’s put on a lot of extra flab. But when you see his sign that says, “Uncle Sam Wants you!” don’t fall for it. He just wants your money. Notice that in Sam’s other hand, he’s

holding a sign that says, “Will work for food.” Don’t fall for that trick, either. Don’t encourage the phony glutton by putting any money in his tip jar.” “Quick, look out the left-hand side of the bus and you’ll catch a rare glimpse of the Tooth Fairy. Getting to see the Fairy is a very rare occurrence ever since he got a stiff prison sentence for dealing in ivory, even if it came from screaming little kids, not elephants in Africa.” “Hey, look,” said an excited tourist. “Isn’t that Smokey Bear over by that burnt-out log?” “Yes, it is and I’m surprised you can recognize him with his nicotine-stained teeth and fingers. Smokey has been trying to kick the smoking habit for years and has tried everything from the patch to hypnotism. One shrink suggested Smokey let himself go to pot because of the lie he’s been telling for years that, “Only you can prevent forest fires.” It turns out that chainsaws, thinning crews, clear cuts and cows can too. Smokey’s worsening condition should serve as a warning that smoking is not good for bears, people or forests.” “Now, if you will turn your att......” “Look,” interrupted one sight-

seer, “it’s the Easter Bunny trying to outrun that fire!” “No, that’s the Energizer Bunny. Sadly, we lost the Easter Bunny last year in a devastating fire in California. That’s why you may have seen a tear in Smokey Bear’s eye. Smokey and the Easter Bunny were very close. Alas, perhaps it’s just as well because the Easter Bunny was really depressed about having such a hard time finding enough politically correct, organically raised eggs to hide. And with all the denuded forests and burned-out urban landscapes, it was just too easy for the kids to find the eggs as they stuck out like the warts on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’s face. Speaking of which, we’re sorry to say we won’t be seeing Rudolph on this tour because he’s in rehab. He started drinking heavily after Santa sold the sleigh and started sending everything via Amazon.” “Now we have entered that part of the park reserved for Make-Believe authority figures that serve as pitchmen. For example, on the right-hand side of the bus, you’ll see the Geico Gecko and the Aflac Duck throwing rocks at each other. And those on the left-hand side of the bus can see Mr. Clean

• ¼ cup butter, softened Directions: 1. Spread four slices of bread with mayonnaise. Layer each with thinly sliced ham, cheese and onion. Spread horseradish sauce on remaining bread; place bread with horseradish side down over onion. Spread butter on the outside of each sandwich. In a large skillet over medium heat, toast sandwiches for 4-5 minutes on each side or until bread is lightly browned and cheese is melted. Serve your sandwiches with your favorite coleslaw recipe or this crunchy apple salad. Crispy ‘n’ Crunchy Salad Ingredients: • 1 medium Golden Delicious apple, chopped • 1 medium red apple chopped • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced • ½ cup chopped walnuts • ½ cup golden raisins • ¼ cup honey Directions: 1. In a large bowl, combine the apples, celery, walnuts and raisins. Add the honey; toss to coat. Serve immediately. Cheers!

trying to clean up the big mess left behind by the Budweiser Clydesdales.” SCREECH! CRASH! BOOM! CRUNCH! “Sorry folks, it seems we’ve just run over Tony the Tiger who was sleeping in the middle of the road. Tony was a popular advertising figure here in Make-Believe Land. Perhaps it’s a blessing, though, because Tony was becoming more emaciated by the day. That’s because he was a gummer, his teeth having fallen out years ago from all that sugar.” “This next part of Make-Believe land is a cemetery and scrap yard for Make-Believe authoritarian figures who are no longer with us, including the Taco Bell Chihuahua, Budweiser’s frogs named Frank and Louie, Spuds MacKenzie, Morris the Cat, and others.” “What about Joe Camel?” asked one of the gawkers. “I love Joe Camel.” “I’m afraid Joe went the way of the Marlboro Cowboy. They both got lung cancer at the same time and the Cowboy rode old Joe Camel off into the sunset.” Lee Pitts is an independent columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email them at leepitts@leepittsbooks.com.

• 1 cup turkey or chicken gravy • 1 carton (8 ounces) sour cream onion dip • ½ teaspoon onion salt • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees 2. Cook noodles and spinach according to the package directions; drain. Stir butter into spinach. Place noodles in a greased 11-inch x 7-inch x 2-inch baking dish; top with the spinach. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, gravy, onion dip and onion salt; spoon over spinach. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 25 mins or until heated through. Serves 6. Simple is the name of this next recipe. If you don’t have turkey, use chicken. Sprinkle grated sharp cheddar cheese over the top of each helping for extra flavor.

ome of the most happy and joyful memories I have of growing up during my childhood and teenage years were the gifts that I received at Christmas. My mother and dad would ask me what I would like to have as a gift. It was so exciting when I went to bed on Christmas Eve in anticipation of waking up on Christmas morning to see and open the presents that my parents had bought for me. I especially remember when I was in the sixth grade and both my older brother, Steve, and I asked our parents for a new Schwinn bicycle. Our hope was wonderfully fulfilled and we rode

our new bicycles for the whole day. When I was a teenager in the 10th grade, I remember that my parents bought me my first suit. My mother told me that I looked so grown up and sharp. My father taught me how to tie my new necktie. I still tie my necktie the way he taught me to this day. Another wonderful memory I have is going to my dad’s parents on Christmas Eve. Grandma Barker would always have some See’s candy and her homemade popcorn balls. We always had so much good food to eat. My parents told me that I didn’t have to eat anything I didn’t like, which was an exception to rules when eating at home. I loved eating the dark meat on the turkey leg. We have been so blessed as Americans to have so much delicious food to eat on our holidays. My mother had an annual

tradition at Christmas. She gave my two brothers and me a Christmas stocking full of little gifts and especially See’s butterscotch and chocolate suckers. When my wife and I started to raise our three children, we started our own traditions and had a Christmas stocking for each of our children, just like my mom’s tradition. Our children have passed on this tradition to our grandchildren. The Christmas stockings are very decorative and we have used the same stockings for years. Once I married and became a parent, Mariann and I had great joy in providing gifts for our children and each other. We learned the true meaning of Jesus’ words: “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). Christmas is a great time to manifest your love for family and friends and to see the joy that is expressed by those receiving those gifts.

Christmas should also historically remind us of the gracious and wonderful gift that God gave us, which is the real reason we celebrate Christmas: The gift of His Son Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world. The angel told the shepherds in Luke 2:10-11 that a Savior had been born in Bethlehem who was Christ the Lord. Christmas is Christ’s birthday. My wife, children, and I would sing the happy birthday song to Jesus every Christmas after reading Luke 2:1-14. This gift of salvation is the greatest gift I have ever received. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope it will create memories that will bring you joy and happiness for the rest of your lives.

situations hoping that it would help later in the season when she needed it most. “Everyone has their own method of doing it,” she said. “I meditate; my mom is a life coach, so she has tactics and tools that I learn from her. I read a lot of books from other competitors and talk with them to see what their process is like.” In September, after four months of waiting, Otter’s bow was perfectly calibrated thanks to help from her coaches and generous sponsors like PSE, AAE, Truball, Bee Stingers, and the people at Central Coast Archery. For the next month, Otter dialed it in, shooting at least 72 arrows each day and heading out to small competitions to prepare for the gauntlet she was about to run. Entering the season, the AHS senior thought she would have to enter and perform well at three of the four USAT tournaments, but after COVID-19 caused a cancellation in Arizona, she realized that her national championship performance would count in its place.

CITY COUNCIL CONTINUED FROM A1

Director Phil Dunsmore provided a long and detailed presentation on the different land uses available such as indoor commercial cultivation and distribution centers. Dunsmore provided data from other local communities that have moved forward with cannabis, such as Grover Beach, San Luis Obispo, and Morro Bay but noted each of those cities have storefront retail, which brings in the majority of the tax revenue. “In our discussions with other communities, it does appear that the majority of the tax revenue and job creation happening now is under a retail storefront not from manufacturing, cultivation or other land uses,” Dunsmore

Suddenly, the impossible mission moved to just improbable. In early October, Otter made the trip to Chula Vista for the SoCal Cup. A strong opening round carried her into the eliminations, where she made it into the quarter-finals and was outshot. With points from her national title and the SoCal Cup, Otter knew she needed a great weekend in Florida at the Gator Cup in November to achieve her ultimate goal. To make the USAT, archers must rank in the top five of their age group, gender group, and bow style. Otter’s class, called the Compound Cadets, is for girls ages 15 to 17 that shoot with a compound bow. To make the team and officially don the red, white and blue, she would need to finish in the top five of over 100 qualified competitors. The Gator Cup was held the weekend of Nov. 7 in Newberry, Fla. Standing 50 meters away from her target as she warmed up on Friday, Otter realized this weekend was going to put her mental strength to the test. Not only did she have to deal with nerves and the everyday

stresses of a big competition but also with tropical storm Eta that was rolling into Florida that weekend, bringing lots of wind with it. Even with the wind, Otter rolled through the qualifying rounds and advanced to the first stage of eliminations, where adversity finally struck. “Just as I release, this giant gust of wind comes up and adjusts my release and makes my arm fly open, and I shoot just outside the fivering,” Otter said. Her shot earned her zero points and put her behind her competitor with just two rounds to go. The Atascadero superstar focused on what she needed to do, shot herself back into the competition and advanced to the next round. Otter rode the bounce-back win into the next round and again advanced, this time by just a single point, and punched her ticket onto the USAT. The announcement did not come immediately. Following the Florida tournament, Otter and her family returned home, and for the next three days, she checked her phone every 30 minutes dying with anticipation.

“I had it bookmarked so I could go right to it. Tuesday (Nov. 10), I refreshed it after coming home from cross country practice, and I froze. I couldn’t move,” she said recalling when she saw her name. Unfortunately, the Compound Bow is not currently an Olympic sport, but it becomes more and more of a possibility as each year passes. “Really, I just get to wear USA on my back during competitions, which is the coolest thing,” Otter said. “It is totally fantastic, and I am over the moon about it, but there is obviously a lot more to be learned.” While many may have struggled through 2020, Otter excelled, and while she isn’t quite sure what her future holds, she knows that archery will likely be a part of it. However, finishing school is her primary objective before worrying about turning to the professional ranks. For anyone interested in archery or meeting perhaps a future Olympian, Otter works at Central Coast Archery on Saturdays and encourages anyone to come in that wants to learn to shoot.

said. “There is some revenue from non-storefront delivery.” Dunsmore also noted that the City has received multiple requests for cannabis retail storefronts but have not received any for manufacturing, stating that many cannabis companies use vertical integration to grow their companies and want that retail component before entering a City. Council members asked several questions regarding market demand and decided that without a retail storefront, no action moving forward is needed at this time and that cannabis zoning can be addressed again at a later date. “If you are saying there needs to be vertical integration, having staff do all this work for something that is not going to come seems rather foolish since we have a lot

on our plate and we have things we need to be doing,” Councilwoman Roberta Fonzi said. While storefront cannabis retail will not be coming to Atascadero anytime soon, the Council did instruct the City staff to look into non-storefront deliveries as a way to generate some revenue. Currently, if someone in Atascadero were to buy cannabis from an online delivery and pays online, the revenue generated goes to the City that had the point of sale, not the City it was delivered in. The Council’s third and final order of business Tuesday night was the Traffic Way Sidewalk Accessibility and Pedestrian Ramp Construction Award. The project, which was first awarded funding in 2017, will remove

pedestrian barriers along Traffic Way and at the intersection with El Camino Real to meet the American Disabilities Act requirements. According to the agenda packet, the money will come through the City’s Community Development Block Grant, which was awarded $100,612 during 2017, $198,449 during 2018, and an additional

above and beyond and genuinely representing the District and its core values. “It is an honor tonight to talk a little bit about Kamela Proulox. She is our Wellness Center coordinator, and it’s hard to talk about her without talking about the vision and mission of the Wellness Center because she is the machine behind the success,” Atascadero High School Assistant Principal Libby Madding said. “Five years ago, we had the vision of bringing a program to the high school that would allow us to provide therapeutic care to students and to destigmatize the therapeutic process. Kamela has done an incredible job of doing that. She has built the program, she has established student interns, and it is just an incredible service we are able to provide to not just the high school but the middle school and fine arts academy.” The Wellness Center is located at Atascadero High School but provides assistance to any student in the District looking for help or who may need some assistance. During an ordinary in-person board meeting, Proulox would have received a certificate from the trustees as well as a gift and a picture. However, due to COVID19 restrictions, she will receive her items in the mail. Next, the Board recognized the workers that have been integral parts of keeping the District’s food service options open throughout the lockdowns and the summer. “During times of COVID and this current pandemic, the bar has been raised,” AUSD Assistant Superintendent Curt Eichberger said. “Meaning our District has not only provided food on-site for students that have been coming in, $87,235 for a total of $386,296. The City received six bids on the project, and R. Burke Corporation submitted the lowest proposal at $236,930 but notified the City on Nov. 16 that its offer contained a clerical error and requested that it be withdrawn. The next lowest bid belonged to G. Sosa Construction at $286,385. On Nov. 17, the City received

but under the stewardship of Mrs. Mayhew [Louise Mayhew, Assistant Director of Support Services] we have been able to extend our summer program and also provide food and nourishment for any child that comes to one of our campuses, regardless of if they are a student or not.” The Board recognized 19 employees: Bettina Curatolo, Manny Oliveras, Vivilen Ricafrente, Sarah Manley, Mimi Hysell, Teressa Rodriguez, Jodi Prentiss, Debra Lorden, Rena Berceny, Debbie Rennergarbe, Maria Lavigne, Pam Smith, Laine Larson, Cindy Wilson, Kristin Wilson, Danielle Reed, Kristina Harding, Erlyn Barca, and Debbie Arnold. Before moving to their informational items, the Board declared that Dec. 2 is officially the Atascadero Unified School District Day of the Special Educator. Each year Dec. 2 is designated as National Special Education Day. On this date in 1975, the Individuals with Disabilities Act was signed into law. The School Board meeting ended with two informational items, the first one covering the upcoming plans for the state-required tests in April. These tests, which are used to judge a student’s baseline of knowledge and where they are either proficient or deficient, were canceled last spring. It has become a topic of discussion around how to proctor the tests this year and prepare for potentially low test scores in the future. In the final order of business, the District held a brief policy review with the Board of Trustees. It examined select policies and administrative regulations related to business and non-instructional operations such as food service. To watch this school board meeting or any, go to Youtube and check out the Atascadero School District’s channel. a written bid protest from the third-lowest bidder, JJ Fisher Construction. Staff recommended that the Council reject Fisher’s objection stating it was “without merit.” After a little discussion, the Council agreed and voted unanimously to reject Fisher’s protest and awarded the construction contract to G. Sosa Construction.

For Thanksgiving, residents have been having private dinners with their families. Elementary school students will be giving performances and reading stories through Zoom while residents sit in front of their fireplaces. A Heavenly Home plans to open their Winter Wonderland for the public to admire, and residents can wave and say hello and enjoy seeing the community. Human connection is something we all crave, especially during the holidays. And even though we can’t always provide that during these times, there are ways to fill the void and still enjoy the holidays.
