Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin and Councilman John Hamon, with his wife Marjorie, joined the sing-along as well. Although the Grinch was a bit stubborn at first, he eventually came around. I mean, who can resist singing along to Rudolph

the Red Nose Reindeer? Mayor Martin concluded, “Everything went smoothly. We managed to convert the Grinch to Christmas, which is a good news thing. Mrs. Claus said we definitely have sufficient Christmas Spirit for Santa Clause to show up at the Christmas Parade, so we’re very happy about that. And we had a great time singing together and holding our candles together, and

it was a very successful and happy event.” It has been said that the Grinch’s soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots!

EVENT

PASO ROBLES — On Thursday Nov. 25, over 1,200 meals were distributed to the community for the 37th Thanksgiving for Paso Robles at Centennial Park. Chairman David Kudija reports that while it was one of the lightest days they’ve had for dine-in meals, Turkey Day went “Amazingly!” The Thanksgiving crew delivered more meals than ever before, which Kudija attributes to COVID and people wishing to stay home. There were 1,500 meals prepared and about 1,200 meals distributed, about the same as the past few years. Originally, Kudija said they prepared for meals to be in higher demand due to challenging circumstances from the last two years. This week, Thanksgiving for Paso Robles is working on distributing leftovers from Thursday’s meal. Some leftovers were brought to the El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) shelters in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo (SLO). About 20 pumpkin pies were brought to the Bridge Christian Church in Paso Robles and given out to the congregation. Afterward, three leftover pies were taken to the Centennial Park Staff. “They [the staff ] went above and beyond this year, helping us do all the

arrangements to make this happen,” said Kudija. While the annual Thanksgiving dinner went off without a hitch, three weeks prior, there were concerns the group would not be able to pull off the dinner due to a lack of volunteers. Thanksgiving for Paso Robles is 100 percent funded by donations and run by volunteers. It takes approximately $9,000 and 200 volunteers to put on the annual dinner. Volunteers begin prepping and cooking the meals on Monday and are ready to serve almost 2,000 people by Thursday.

WEEKLY FEATURE

SANTA MARGARITA — Excitement is building in Santa Margarita as the month of December rolls back around, this year bringing the return of some “in-person” favorite holiday events. After nearly two years of scaling back, cancellations, or having events go remote, Santa Margarita’s community organizers have made plans to move forwards with the return of the Santa Margarita Friends of the Library Annual Craft Faire, in-person caroling and lighting of the Christmas Tree and the Holiday Stroll. As containers of mass-produced merchandise continue to sit idly by on ships or in ports, we continue to learn more lessons about the importance of producing and buying locally. In addition to directly supporting our own economy and reducing travel miles for goods, we have the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind, local and handmade items by artisans right here in our own backyard. After skipping last year’s event due to COVID, the Friends of the Santa Margarita Library (FOSML) will host their 18th Annual Craft Faire and Bake Sale. The event will take place on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Santa Margarita Community Hall, located on the corner of I and Murphy Streets, at 22501 I Street in Santa Margarita. According to FOSML President Sheila Wynne, this year’s event will feature 24 local artisan and craft vendors. Among the array of modern and traditional crafts, you will find fabulous naturally constructed wreaths and ornaments by Polly Mc Mullen; goat milk soaps, organic lip balms, and alpaca socks by Giving Tree Family Farm; hand-felted alpaca and merino wool hats, vintage and handmade hat pins by The Woolly Pearl; beautiful and plush rag rugs by Larianne Huntsberger Koch; and wonderfully creative stuffed animals by Sewn So Sweetly. Do you have a sweet tooth, want to start early, or purchase something delicious for friends

ECHO Turkey Trot Returned For In-Person Run On Thanksgiving Close to 450 people ran a 5k around Atascadero Lake Park

Donations made by participants at the Turkey Trot were matched by the Bloved Foundation, who partnered alongside ECHO this year. “We have a wonderful community partner in the Bloved Foundation. They came beside us the first year [of the Turkey Trot]. They were there as participants and knew our work, and just that spirit, again, in the air, they wanted to contribute to the cause. That first year, they made a very significant gift and helped us raise a good amount,” said Lewis. Participants raised $16,750, and the Bloved Foundation decided to donate $20,000 to match those numbers. Overall, with the help of local business sponsors, ECHO’s Turkey Trot has raised $70,000 so far to help the less fortunate in our county. “Donations raised will support all of our programs, including ECHO Atascadero, ECHO Paso Robles, and then the emergency winter shelter that we run in Atascadero as well. The amount we raised exceeded our goal, which is incredible because we need to look at sustaining the huge growth that we’ve had this past year. [Like] taking on two new facilities and running those. So it means more even now because we have more work we’re doing, and we want to continue that well into the future,” Lewis continued. “We’re just over the moon with how many people came out, their generosity, and obviously the Bloved Foundation and their faith in our work and even just being there as a huge partner in it [the turkey trot]. If you’re interested in donating to the Turkey Trot, ECHO, or want to find out more about what they do, head to echoshelter.org.

By CHRISTIANNA MARKS

ATASCADERO — ECHO (El Camino Homeless Organization) hosted a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, where close to 450 participants ran or walked a 5k around Atascadero Lake Park. This was the third annual Turkey Trot! Last year the Trot was held virtually due to COVID, but this year it was back in person, and the excitement was real. “We were so excited this year to have it again in person. It was incredible how many from the community came out, and that spirit [from the first Turkey Trot] was back, and we were just so excited to get people together. [It was] tons of fun, exercise, and obviously, the fundraising component was key to help promote the programs and [help us] do what we do,” said Wendy Lewis, the President, and CEO of ECHO. All locals who showed up were encouraged to dress like turkeys. Adults, kids, and even dogs joined in on the fun. And the costumes did not disappoint. From turkeythemed hats to full-blown turkey costumes and everything in between. Prizes were given out for the best costume. “A little girl won ‘best-dressed child,’ and then we had a trio of people that were dressed in tutus and turkey hats, and they won the adult [prize]. The Tutu Trio is what they called themselves,” Lewis said. All locals who showed up were encouraged to dress like turkeys. Adults, kids, and even dogs joined in on the fun. Photos by Rick Evans

TEMPLETON — National Wreaths Across America Day returns Dec. 18, and the Templeton American Legion Post #220 and the El Paso de Robles Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), plan to do their part to honor fallen Veterans.

The organization offers learning tools, interactive media projects, and opportunities for youth groups to participate in the events. They also work to create opportunities to connect “the Greatest Generation” with the “Generation of Hope,” passing on inspirational stories from World War II veterans to the leaders of the future.

CONCERT

Cal Poly Symphony to Present ‘Gabrielian Plays Shostakovich’ on Dec. 3

Tanya Gabrielian is passionate about community engagement, education and activism through art STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Cal Poly Symphony returns to performing live for an in-person audience for its fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3, in Miossi Hall in the Performing Arts Center’s Christopher Cohan Center. For the concert, titled “Gabrielian Plays Shostakovich,” the symphony welcomes guest soloist Tanya Gabrielian, hailed by the London Times as “a pianist of powerful physical and imaginative muscle,” to perform Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2. An acclaimed soloist, Gabrielian has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National

Orchestra and Boston Pops, among others. In addition to performing internationally, Gabrielian is passionate about community engagement, education and activism through art. She has collaborated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness in programs highlighting the stigma around mental health issues and with other artists in multidisciplinary projects that have earned her international recognition. The symphony’s program will feature composers with mental illness, beginning with Sergei Rachmaninoff, who suffered from depression. After one particularly dismal period precipitated by a failed premiere, he could only return to composing with the help of his therapist, Nikolai Dahl. The group will play Rachmaninoff ’s haunting “Vocalise” in an arrangement for full orchestra by the composer. The program will continue with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy,” based on Shakespeare’s play of the same name. Tchaikovsky, who experi-

enced extreme cycles of depression and productivity, struggled with the composition of this work. With the help of Mily Balakirev, it underwent several revisions, from its disappointing first performance to eventual success. After intermission, Gabrielian will play Robert Schumann’s Piano Sonata No. 2 in G Minor, Op. 22. Schumann, who suffered from bipolar disorder and delusional visions, attempted suicide and was admitted at his own request to a mental asylum, where he died without recovering. This sonata was composed between 1830 and 1838 and is the most performed of his piano sonatas. Clara Schumann, the composer’s wife, and a virtuoso pianist wrote to her husband in 1838, “I am endlessly looking forward to the second sonata. Your whole being is so clearly expressed in it.” The concert will conclude with a performance of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Major, Op.102. The concerto, written four years after the death of Joseph Stalin, was a birthday

TANYA GABRIELIAN

present for the composer’s 19-yearold son, Maxim. Unlike the tense, angst-ridden music that Shostakovich is known for, this piece revels in playful humor, poignant simplicity, and inside jokes only father and son would understand. Tickets are $15 and $20 for the public, and $10 for students. Event parking is sponsored by the PAC. Tickets are available at the Cal Poly Ticket Office between noon and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. To order by phone, call 805-SLO-4TIX (805-756-4849). The concert is sponsored by Cal Poly’s Music Department, College of Liberal Arts and Instructionally Related Activities program.

After hearing from the public and debating amongst the Board the new District map is chosen By MELISSA GUERRA

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The San Luis Obispo (SLO) County Board of Supervisors held a special meeting to discuss redistricting on Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 9 a.m. The redistricting process began in March when the update came that the census data wouldn’t come through until later, and the timeline was set for the entire process. In July, the first redistricting hearing was held, and community input was heard ahead of census data. On Oct. 26 was the second

redistricting hearing to consider draft maps from the public and advisory committees. On Nov. 19, the Board reviewed all publicly submitted maps and picked two maps for consideration. Revised finalist maps were published on Nov. 24, and in the Nov. 30 meeting, the Board heard public comment and discussed the maps. Public comment raised concerns about the legality of both maps, with several comments stating that the supervisors currently have a difficult job and asking them to “do the right thing,” as seen by each speaker. The main concerns regarding the maps were the changes to the current district boundaries and accelerating the voting schedule for some residents while others are deferred and won’t get to vote for their supervisor for another four years. The Patton map, submitted by a SLO County resident, while having only a total deviation of 7.8 percent, had an acceleration of 48,622 voters with deferrals of 49,418. In contrast, the SLO Chamber map had an acceleration of 9,499 and deferrals of 9,833. Early in the meeting, it was asked

by Supervisors Dawn Ortiz-Legg and Bruce Gibson to ask staff to run partisan analysis on both maps. This request was opposed by Supervisors John Peschong, Debbie Arnold, and Chairperson Lynn Compton with questions about the legality of the request as the Supervisors are required to address the maps without prejudice of voting positions of the residents. “I thought we were specifically supposed to NOT know that,” questioned Supervisor Arnold. After listening to hours of public comment, Supervisor Dawn OrtizLegg made a motion to approve the SLO Chamber map, which was seconded by Supervisor Gibson but did not pass. Supervisor John Peschong made a motion to approve map 74786, which is the Patton map, with a minor adjustment to maintain the existing San Miguel Community Services District (CSD) boundaries in what will be, going forward, district 2. The motion was seconded by Supervisor Debbie Arnold. Before it went to vote, Supervisor Gibson requested

to pass along a report that had been submitted into public comment outlining the partisan analysis of the maps. Chairperson Compton objected and pushed through the vote so as not to risk the Board being compromised by looking at data that could be considered illegal. “Do we have three supervisors who will stand up for some modicum of democratic discussion?” Supervisor Gibson inquired. Supervisor Gibson refused to cast his vote until his comments were heard and also spoke about different communities of interest that were being ignored before ultimately voting no for the Patton Map. The motion was passed 3-2, with Supervisors Ortiz-Legg and Gibson in opposition. The county ordinance will be introduced on the regular Dec. 7 meeting, which will begin at 9 a.m. The agenda for the meeting and links to participate can be found on the County’s website at slocounty.ca.gov/ Departments/Administrative-Office/ Clerk-of-the-Board/Clerk-of-the-BoardServices/Board-of-Supervisors-Meetingsand-Agendas.aspx

PRJUSD Welcomes Return of Students’ Trustee on Board Thirteen applicants were approved and will be interviewed on Dec. 7 By CAMILLE DeVAUL

PASO ROBLES — The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District (PRJUSD) met on Monday, Nov. 29, for a special meeting to approve minimum qualifications and questions for provisional appointment applicants. Additionally, the board approved to have a student representative on the Board of Trustees. Paso Robles High School (PRHS) Senior, Cameron LeClair with the help of students and teachers, collected over 500 signatures to present his request to have a student representative on the Board of Trustees. The petition was part of Leclair’s senior government class project and aligned with ED Code 35012. It has been approximately 15 years since PRJUSD has had a student representative. PRHS ASB President, Malia Gaviola, will represent the student body during board meetings. LeClair states, “This will be a positive step forward for student voices to be heard.”

Gaviola is excited to be the student representative and is encouraged by the action and vote of the Board of Trustees. She states, “I will work incredibly hard to represent the voices of students in the key decisions of the district.” Student representatives are not present for closed session items and do not have any voting rights on board decisions but can be a voice for the students. PRJUSD Superintendent Dr. Curt Dubost said, “I want you to know how much we appreciate you guys doing this. I think it’s fantastic that we have students at the high school who are pursuing reforms and pursuing what’s best for the district in responsible ways that go through appropriate channels.” Student Representative Malia Gaviola will be officially sworn in on Dec. 14. The Board of Trustees went on to confirm the minimum qualifications of 13 applicants for a provisional appointment of Trustee to fill the seat for one year of the resigned board member Jim Reed. Twelve questions were also approved. Applicants will choose six of those questions to answer during group interviews on Dec. 7. Applications have been received by:

RENEWABLE ENERGY

Comments Being Taken on Offshore Wind Farms Bureau of Ocean Energy Management begins 'Environmental Analysis' for the Morro Bay Wind Energy Area By NEIL FARRELL

CENTRAL COAST — The possibility of a giant offshore wind energy farm off the coast of San Luis Obispo County took a step forward in November when a federal agency moved the proposal into an environmental review phase. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management or BOEM announced on Nov. 12 that it had begun an "Environmental Analysis" (EA) for the "Morro Bay Wind Energy Area" or WEA, a 376 square mile patch of ocean — 240,898 acres — located some 20 miles off the coast at San Simeon. An EA is part of the environmental review process under the National Environmental Policy Act, which is the federal version of the "California Environmental Quality Act" or CEQA. Though the two processes approach from opposite directions, they arrive at the same destination, purportedly an environmentally sound project whose every impact is either avoided or mitigated. The Nov. 12 announcement reads, "BOEM will now prepare an Environmental Assessment as required under the National Environmental Policy Act, to consider potential impacts from site characterization activities [e.g., biological, archeological, geological, and geophysical surveys) and site assessment activities (e.g., installation of meteorological buoys] within the WEA. BOEM's preparation of the EA will initiate a public comment period along with two virtual public meetings." BOEM will take public

comments now through Jan. 11 at 11:59 p.m., the release said. "Once BOEM considers all public input, the agency will publish a draft EA for public review and comment. The analyses contained in the EA will help BOEM determine whether to move forward with an area(s) for a proposed lease sale." The investigations into offshore wind energy was started by Trident Winds in 2016 when the company inquired into possibly developing a 1,000-megawatt wind farm offshore of the Central Coast. The initial area sought by Trident was offshore about 22 miles from Cayucos in some 20,000 feet of water. But the Navy objected to that area as it sits in the midst of the flight training zone for Lemoore Naval Air Station. In response, BOEM asked if any other companies were interested and got several responses from U.S. and European energy companies. Now the number of interested companies numbers over a dozen, including several oil companies. The State of California has an interest because of its ambitious climate change goals that are intended to lead California into a future with totally carbon-free energy generation. Since the State no longer considers nuclear energy desirable and will be completely nuke-free once Diablo Canyon closes in 2025, and there are no hydroelectric projects under consideration, that means wind and solar. Since initiating the conversation, Trident has teamed up with German Energy company EnBW to form Castle Winds and is actively pursuing an operating license. Castle Wind and the City of Morro Bay signed a memorandum of understanding wherein the City has lent its support behind Castle's proposal, and Castle has pledged to support the City financially.

It was Castle Wind's leadership team that approached the Navy and worked out the current location off San Simeon for the offshore wind farm. Another local potential area south of Point Buchon off the Coast of Diablo Canyon was dropped after the Navy refused to give that area up. Another Pacific Coast area is also being looked at off the Coast of Humboldt County, but that area lacks what Morro Bay has—an easy and existing connection to the power grid and capacity on the existing high voltage transmission wires that enter and exit the rear of the Morro Bay Power Plant. President Biden recently issued an executive order calling on the development of offshore wind on the Pacific Coast of 4.5 gigawatts (a gigawatt is 1,000 megawatts). As an example, the Morro Bay Power Plant, when it was operational, had a capacity of just over 1,000 MW. But that plant hasn't been operational since 2014. The large commercial solar plants built several years ago in California Valley have taken advantage of the open capacity on the transmission wires to send their energy into the power grid. Biden's order and its focus on offshore wind energy potential caused the BOEM to expand the originally designated area up to 399 square miles, which this most recent pronouncement shrank back down to 376 square miles. "Offshore wind presents a significant opportunity for California and our nation as we transition to clean, renewable energy. Today's announcement represents significant progress towards that future," said BOEM Director Amanda Lefton. "As the process continues, BOEM is committed to environmental reviews, which are critical for a strong resource management program, and to

How Offshore Floating Wind Farms Work

robust public engagement." Though little has been publicly announced since the start of all this in 2016, a check of the BOEM website for the project (visit boem. gov/renewable-energy/stateactivities/morro-bay-wind-energyarea) shows the agency has been busy studying various aspects of the project, including such specific things as the "Potential Impacts of Submarine Power Cables on Crab Harvest;" to "Humpback Whale Encounter with Offshore Wind Mooring Lines and Inter-Array Cables." Many of these individual studies, some done with research universities and others with the California Energy Commission, have already been completed. Those areas of study are listed in a BOEM summary report; visit boem.gov/sites/default/files/ documents/renewable-energy/ Selected-BOEM-ResearchRenewable-CA_2.pdf. Among the numerous engineering challenges the wind farms face are how to effectively and safely moor floating turbines that stand 600 feet tall from the ocean surface to the tip of the 200-foot fan blades moored in 800-1,000 feet of water. On its website, Castle Wind names four types of anchors they could use from giant concrete blocks

and anchor chains to so-called torpedo anchors — wherein a long steel tube with a point on one end is dropped off the side of a workboat and, sinking quickly, embeds itself into the seafloor. It would be connected to the floating turbine via mooring chains, which have links that weigh upwards of 350 pounds each. A second and perhaps more challenging obstacle is where to build the necessary maintenance yard. A Cal Poly study into the feasibility of the wind farms noted that such an operation would need at least 40 acres of land for a maintenance yard, located adjacent to a deep water port with a huge floating work quay. President Biden, in his announcement on his executive order, touted the notion as having the potential to create thousands of good-paying union jobs. But just where will those jobs likely be created? State Senator John Laird (D—17th District), in a recent interview, was asked about this because nowhere in San Luis Obispo County does such an area exist, and without hesitation, Sen. Laird said, "Port Hueneme," which is located in Ventura County at Oxnard. Though it won't likely be part of BOEM's EA on the project, the impacts of having to tow 600-foot

tall turbines with a boat several hundred feet in length from Port Hueneme around Point Conception to San Simeon and back for maintenance is likely to have a significant impact on air quality, as well as the operations and maintenance costs, which traditionally are borne by electricity ratepayers. Another potential issue is the Morro Bay area's close proximity to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, indeed the wind farm area under study hugs the western edges of that sanctuary, as well as the northern edges of the proposed Chumash Heritage NMS that the federal government has also recently moved forward (visit sanctuaries. noaa.gov/chumash-heritage). BOEM plans to have its EA completed sometime in the spring and tentatively plans to hold a lease auction sometime in Summer 2022. "Advancing both wind energy development and the sanctuary designation process in the area demonstrates the Biden-Harris Administration's commitments to these important and complementary goals," BOEM said.

bereavement support group. • Know that you may experience a range of emotions, including sorrow, anger, relief, confusion, and a deep sense of longing. • Relax your expectations of yourself. You may not be able to accomplish and manage all the things you are used to doing, and that is okay. • Remember that everyone goes through this process in their own way and at their own pace. There is no “right” way to grieve. • The loss of a loved one can be a roller coaster of emotions, and profound sadness is a normal reaction. Finding people to support you is perhaps the most important thing you can do following the loss of someone you love. People with greater social support tend to do better while grieving. It is important to find “safe” places where you can receive support for feeling the many emotions that you will experience during grief. Support groups are a great way to meet others who share the experience of loss, especially when and if you don’t want to rely exclusively on family or friends. Many local organizations offer support groups for those grieving. Cancer Support Community— California Central Coast is one of those places, and we provide both a caregiver and a grief support group, as well as individual therapy at no cost. If you or someone you know has been impacted by a cancer diagnosis or death, please visit our website at cscslo.org, or call our office at (805)238-4411 for information. About Cancer Support Community-California Central Coast (CSC) aims to help those affected by cancer and their loved ones enhance their health and well-being. With a motto of “community is stronger than cancer,” CSC provides a professional program of social and emotional support, as well as education to provide social and emotional support to local families affected by cancer.

t is devastating to learn that a loved one has an advanced cancer that will take her or his life. The diagnosis may give you time to have important conversations or to share special times. But this doesn’t necessarily mean you will be prepared for any or all of the emotions you feel when your loved one dies or that your grief will be any less raw or painful. You may have heard that there are five stages to the grieving process: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. It is true that you are likely to experience all of these feelings and emotions. But these stages are not like steps on a ladder that you easily climb in an orderly fashion. Not only is it unlikely that you will spend the same amount of time in each stage, you might find yourself moving forward and backward between different stages, skipping some and returning to them later, or repeating others. There is no “right” way to grieve. Some people move through grief slowly; others move quickly. Your process is likely to be different than that of the friends or family members who are also grieving. Learning about the normal aspects of grief can help prepare you for what you will experience. It can also make you aware of how and when to get help if you need it. Whether you are anticipating the loss of a loved one or are bereaved, there are specific things you can do to take care of yourself. You may want to: • Think about what you can do physically to take care of yourself. Taking a walk, getting rest, minimizing alcohol, and eating well can help you find the physical strength you need to manage the emotions you are feeling. • Give yourself permission to take a break from your sadness. It is okay to laugh or have fun in order to relieve the stress and tension that accompanies grief. • Consider ways to deal with your fears and emotions by talking with a professional counselor, faith leader or by joining a caregivers support group or a

In 1964 eternity on October 14, 2021, Howard and Anita moved their at the age of 95, at his home in growing family to what was Atascadero, CA. Always positive, then-rural Simi Valley. Howard deeply spiritual, patient, a gentlealways believed in public service, man, and a man of integrity, he and with hard work and a desire held a deep love for country and to give back to the YMCA, a community. Howard’s family and valuable place of support after his friends will deeply miss him. father’s death at age 9, in 1966 Howard was born on Septem- he became a founding member ber 26, 1926, to William Rollo and was on the Board of Managand Anna Hulda Marohn of ers to launch the new Simi Valley Denver, CO. A born athlete, he YMCA. Howard also joined the excelled at many sports, most Board of Directors of the new notably basketball, which he Conejo Valley YMCA in 1967, played for Hollywood High and he served as President of School and later received a schol- the Simi Valley Y’s Men’s Club.

Howard was installed in 1968 as the Northern District Governor for the Pacific Southwest Region of the International Association of Y’s Men’s Clubs. From 197274 Howard served as YMCA Program Director at Camp Gaines, Lake Sequoia Residence Camp. Howard Marohn served as one of the first Simi Valley City Councilmembers (appointed 1971), and ran for Council again, and won in 1974, serving until 1978, including Mayor Pro Tem from 1977-78. Howard married Joan Klea in 1973, and together they moved from Simi Valley to their beloved Silver Oaks property in Atascadero, CA, where they built their forever home in 1979. The couple had attended Hollywood High together and stayed active in the Hollywood High Alumni Association. Howard and Joan enjoyed their early retirement years, traveling, repeatedly to their favorite Southwestern states, partaking in Native American culture and art. They also spent Summer Saturday evenings enjoying the Lakeside Concerts at Atascadero Park. Over the years, they welcomed

many grandchildren who would come and play at their home, visiting with horses that were boarding on their property, hiking, playing horseshoes with grandpa, and of course, riding with him on his tractor. Howard’s public service continued into retirement in his rural new Atascadero home, working with his neighbors to have the city improve the safety and infrastructure of roads in the growing community. Throughout his retirement, he proactively contacted local and state representatives with handwritten letters and phone calls about issues of concern. One political response that was a highlight was a hand-signed and a personal note from fellow Hollywood High School Alumni, outgoing Secretary of State, Warren Christopher (1997), who replied to a letter from Howard who had written thanking him for his service to our country. Howard had ended the letter quoting their High School motto, writing that the Secretary of State had truly demonstrated our school motto of “achieving the honorable.” In his 80’s he delivered Meals on Wheels with his wife throughout Atascadero and volunteered in

his early 90’s as a Salvation Army Bell Ringer during the Holiday season. Howard was often seen riding his 10-speed racing bike around Atascadero Lake in his racing gear until he was almost 90 years old. Howard George Marohn is survived by his wife, Joan of 48 years, his children Jeff, Jennifer (Scott), Doug, and Garrett, his step-children Bill, Kathy, and Linda, fifteen grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, his sister Maureen (d. 1991), and by the mother of his children, Anita Croteau (d. 2018), and their daughter Peggi (d. 1957). Howard lived his Christian faith and was a lifelong student of Christian Science, relying on his faith in God and experiencing many personal healings throughout his lifetime. A private Celebration of Life will be held in December with his family. At Howard’s bequest, his ashes will be scattered by The Neptune Society. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Memory of Howard Marohn to Meals on Wheels or the YMCA directed to the Youth Summer Camp Scholarships fund.

COVID UPDATE

Health Officials Encourage Precautions Amidst New Variant

STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Tuesday, Nov. 30, the County of San Luis Obispo reported that seven people, ranging in age from their 60s to 90s, have died from COVID-19. That report brings the total now 365 people who have died from COVID-19 since March 2020. According to the readyslo.org website, the total cases since March 2020 is 30,459, current active cases 174, recovered cases 29,917, and

total deaths 365, which is 0.01 percent of the total cases in San Luis Obispo County. This report comes as health officials worldwide prepare for the spread of the Omicron variant (B.1.1.529) of COVID-19. Variants found in SLO County per the emergencyslo.org website states that only a small number of COVID-19 positive samples are sequenced statewide and locally to determine the variant. In June, only 13 percent of samples were sequenced in California. Because only a small percentage of case specimens are sequenced to determine their strain, the actual number of variant cases is likely considerably higher. For a full list of variants and their concerns, visit the CDC variant page.

Currently, in San Luis Obispo County, there has been 955 Delta (B.1.617.2) cases reported, 292 Epsilon (B.1.427/B.1.429) cases, 183 Alpha (B.1.1.7) cases, 31 Gamma (P.1) cases and 8 Beta (B.1.351) cases. In the press release Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer, stated, “Sadly, we today report the deaths of seven more members of our community, and we send our deep sympathy to their family and friends; during the month of November, twenty-two residents of our county lost their lives to this disease. When you get vaccinated, wear a face mask or avoid crowds, you are not only protecting yourself but are also helping stop the virus from spreading to someone who may become severely ill.”

Local health officials—in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health—continue to closely monitor for the presence of the newly discovered Omicron variant. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that they named the new version of the COVID19 virus “omicron” B.1.1.529. They classified it as a highly transmissible variant of concern, even though the actual risks are not yet understood. “Early evidence suggests it poses an increased risk that people who have already had COVID-19 could catch it again,” the WHO said. SLO County Heath stated that while the variant has not yet been detected in the United States and much is still unknown, there are

steps community members can take to protect themselves from all variants of COVID-19: get vaccinated, wear a mask, get tested, and stay home if sick. According to Borenstein, of those eligible to receive the vaccine in San Luis Obispo County, 70.1 percent have received at least one dose, and 62.9 percent are fully vaccinated, even though that term is under debate at this time, new reports show. It was reported that more than 50,000 SLO County residents have received boosters. For updates on COVID-19 in SLO County, visit ReadySLO.org or call the recorded Public Health Information Line at (805)788-2903. Phone assistance is available at (805) 781-5500 Monday thru Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

IMPROVEMENTS

Shandon Roadside Rest Area Now Open Post Major Renovations Camp Roberts Area Rest Station anticipated to be closed for renovations late 2021 to Summer 2022 STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — The Shandon Roadside Rest Area on Hwy. 46 East has re-opened following a major Wastewater System Improvement Project which began earlier this year. The opening occurred at 10 a.m. on Nov. 22. The re-opening of the Shandon Rest Area also includes full access to the electric vehicle charging station. This project included upgrades to the advanced treatment wastewater disposal

system and installation of a cloud-based resource monitoring system. The contractor for this $1.1 million project was TSI Engineering of North Highlands, CA. Caltrans wishes to thank everyone for their patience during this important project. The Gaviota Safety Roadside Rest Area Project on US 101 in Santa Barbara County remains closed for renovations until February of 2022. This project will replace the wastewater disposal system, the water storage tank, the pump house and will install a cloud-based resource monitoring system. It will also include a new maintenance storage area and crew room on the southbound side. The estimated cost for this project is $4,782,000. The planned Camp Roberts Safety Road-

side Rest Area Project on US 101 in Monterey County will replace the wastewater disposal system, install a cloud-based resource monitoring system, construct a maintenance storage area and crew room on the northbound side. Both the northbound and the southbound SRRAs, including the electric vehicle charging stations, are anticipated to be closed in late 2021 to summer of 2022. The estimated cost for this project is $5,694,000. These projects will upgrade all wastewater systems to meet current health and safety codes, will decrease maintenance repairs, and conserve and protect environmental resources. Motorists are encouraged to check the Caltrans website for specific closure dates and to make alternative stopping plans during these construction closures.

Recalls Will Soon Get Harder to Pull Off

structure can’t change without a popular vote during a general election, the next one coming up in autumn 2022. There’s a strong possibility the Legislature will put two or three measures before the people next fall, just to make sure at least one passes.

they argued the COVID-19 pandemic posed unusual obstacles. Legislators could be forgiven for believing recall backers in their own districts might gin up some unusual obstacle during almost any year and also get extra time. No one claims recall elections are the epitome of democracy. For one thing, it only takes 12 percent of the voters being sufficiently disgruntled to force a vote in the midst of any elected official’s term. For another, the recall target can draw more votes than anyone on the ballot’s list of potential replacements, but still be voted out if there’s a simple majority on the question of whether there should, in fact, be a recall. So among the changes under consideration for next year’s ballot is one that would separate by days or weeks the vote

on a recall from balloting on a replacement. Another would eliminate the replacement list in gubernatorial recalls and give the governor’s job to the lieutenant governor if a governor is recalled, as Gray Davis was in 2003. Other proposals include giving recall organizers less time to gather signatures or requiring up to twice as many signatures for a recall as today’s rules demand. The Legislature’s few Republicans, of course, oppose all this. Never mind that they would surely turn around quickly if they ever again elect a governor from their party, which now has barely half as many registered adherents as Democrats do. Some of those Republicans point out that only 11 of 179 recall attempts against state officials since the possibility began in 1911 have actu-

ally reached a vote. But two of those votes, both against sitting governors, came within the last 18 years. “This is the last bastion of checks and balances we offer voters,” said GOP Assemblyman Kelly Seyarto, a former mayor of Murietta. Making the process harder, he claimed, “would have a chilling effect for voters.” Added Orrin Heatlie, the main proponent of the Newsom recall, as he protested outside a legislative hearing, “The ability to recall is extremely difficult now, and to try and further complicate the process and make it more difficult for the people to exercise their rights works in (politicians’) favor.” Those sentiments won’t stop the Democratic tide pushing for change. Not while most Democrats believe, as moderate Democratic state Sen. Steve

H

just the cost of living that is spiraling ever-upward but the increasingly oppressive nature of the California government. Politicians like to promise the world a perfect world, to be exact, if only they just had a little more power and your money to rule your life. Given that humanity excels in imperfection, the historical outcome of civilizations that accept this “paper promise” of Shangri La is almost always tyranny and the persecution of all who dissent. Things that seem small and insignificant are portents of worse to come, such as official pronouncements that the State has primacy over your children, not parents and the State will decide what moral values are acceptable for your children to learn. Inevitably, the State pits children against parents, as happens in all totalitarian societies such as Nazi Germany or communist governments. Western socialist governments have a softer touch but are just as intrusive into families as hard-tyranny

government systems. What made America special and why so many strive so hard to come here regardless of personal hardship is that America has presented the one government in the world that enshrined in a written constitution the rights of its citizens and the subordination of government to the authority and will of the people. Unfortunately, more and more, that authority is undermined as courts affirm increasing government authority over every aspect of our lives. California leads in this direction, and the future for the State is bleak unless its residents politically rebel and reject one-party political rule. Once upon a time, the political landscape was fairly balanced in California, but for many reasons, Democrats hold supermajorities throughout the California government. As that political party has been seized by its most radical leftist elements, political reform is almost impossible to obtain

except via federal courts, which so far are unsympathetic to those who legally resist further government intrusion into their lives. For Roberta and I, as we age, we decided that California isn’t a place to grow old unless one is exceptionally wealthy. In contrast to California, a trip to the local gas station affirms that daily: I paid less than $3.00/ gallon for gas this week, and the cost of almost everything in Tennessee is about half or less than it was in California. I also noticed that people here are very accepting and friendly. They express their love of country and patriotism openly and are genuinely respectful of veterans. Tennessee is called “the volunteer state” for a reason: in the Mexican War, Tennessee was asked to provide 2800 militiamen for the war effort; they provided 30,000. They also love Christmas and family/ community traditions; living here is like being on a living set of a Hallmark Channel

environmental disasters and hopeful that we’ll figure it out after all. Access to more information does not mean we are more informed and make better decisions. On the contrary, more information, not all credible, only contributes to complexity and confusion. The human mind naturally looks for shortcuts and simplifications, categorizing and organizing what’s received. Thanks to the “primacy effect,” we are likely to remember most that which we hear first. And due to confirmation bias, we continue to seek similar, validating information. Continuing down the path of least resistance, we tend to sort ourselves accordingly into information and opinion camps. It helps us avoid ambiguity. We feel validated and supported among the

like-minded. And we continue to drift apart with growing animosity. It looks like this: • We form opinions quickly and defend them like a Karen! • We feel the need always to have an opinion and defend it… Like a Karen! • We judge ourselves and others instead of being curious and open-minded. • We form likes and dislikes based on said judgments and opinions. • We avoid or seek confrontations to preserve, validate, and proselytize our opinions. • We blame those who do not hold the same opinions for the wrongs we perceive. • We vilify and seek to character-assassinate those who provide opposing information.

• We live in denial and rely on self-soothing behaviors to avoid reality, some of them unhealthy. • We adopt offense, outrage, and feeling disrespected as a lifestyle. • We are hypocritical, holding others to standards we do not abide by. • We divide the world in two—“us” and “the stupid people out there.” Another way for me to hold complexity is to remain rational. Emotions have a way of twisting perception, rationalizing motivation, and could cause a terrible case of bad judgment. Rationality guards against getting pulled along by others’ priorities—the media, politicians, retailers, and bad friends. Rationality helps with seeing things as they are not worse or better than they are.

Glazer of Orinda observed, that recalls can turn into “a backdoor for the losing side in an election to relitigate the results.” He notes California is one of only 19 states allowing recalls at all, but demands among the fewest petition signatures. Compared to the 12 percent of previous votes needed to get a recall going here, it’s 40 percent in Kansas. There’s little doubt about the undemocratic nature of recalls, but Seyarto is nevertheless correct when he says recalls are a last-gasp outlet for unhappy voters. This doesn’t mean changing an election outcome should be as easy as it is now, but it also doesn’t mean the bar should be raised to impossible levels.

Christmas movie with the towns decorated for the season, and the Christmas spirit is real. We were in a store yesterday when Christmas carolers entered the store singing traditional songs of the season. The people here aren’t particularly wealthy as California defines wealth, but they deal with their social problems; I haven’t seen a single transient camping on the streets or in public spaces: the many churches have stepped up to the plate, and law enforcement is supported when required. There is a drawback; however, Roberta and I will miss all of you, the friends and acquaintances we have known over the years. I will continue to write as long as permitted; we still have close ties and family connections to the community. We wish all a Merry Christmas and a better New Year.

I don’t think I’ll miss 2021. I am not sure I am looking forward to 2022 either. I hope the future is brighter. I am worried that the fabric of society is permanently torn and beyond repair. On days I feel depressed, I focus on the people within my orbit and appreciate them. I focus on my dog and spoil her rotten. I focus on what I can do and do something productive. Perhaps, others think the same way, and all our doing will collectively make a difference. This piece is significantly abridged. To read the full article, head over to my blog at vpetrova.com.

MENT DATED 06/01/2021. 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 PROCEEDINGS AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On 12/14/2021 at 11:00AM, SUNRISE ASSESSMENT SERVICES, as the duly appointed Trustee pursuant to Notice of Delinquent Assessment, Recorded on 06/02/2021, as Instrument # 2021040048 of Official Records in the Office of the Recorder of SAN LUIS OBISPO County, California, property owned by: STANLEY H. HOFFAMN AND TERESSA B. HOFFMAN. WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States, by cash, a cashier’s check drawn by 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). At: In the breezeway adjacent to the County General Services Building, 1087 Santa Rosa Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93408, all right, title and interest under said Notice of Delinquent Assessment in the property situated in said County, describing the land therein: APN: 009-577-023 THIS SALE IS SUBJECT TO A 90 DAY RIGHT OF REDEMPTION. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1 BLUE JAY COURT, 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 made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum due under said Notice of Delinquent Assessment, with interest thereon, as provided in said notice, advances, if any, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee, to-wit: $11,882.40 Estimated. Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. The claimant under said Notice of Delinquent Assessment 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 caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located and more than three months have elapsed since such recordation. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are con-

sidering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (916) 939-0772, or visit this Internet Website www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 20956. 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 Website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (916) 939-0772 or visit this internet website www.nationwideposting. com using the file number assigned to this case 20956 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 by remitting the funds and affidavit described in Section 2924(c) of the Civil Code 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. NOTICE: THIS COMMUNICATION IS FROM A DEBT COLLECTOR. THIS IS AN ATTEMPT TO COLLECT A DEBT, AND ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM YOU WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

removing it from the oven, I broke it up to crumble on each serving. The topping is good enough to eat alone by the spoonful! Now it’s time to think “Christmastime” foods to give as gifts to family and friends. This recipe for a homemade bread is sure to please.

Cheesy Pepper Bread Ingredients: • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened • 2 eggs • ½ cup milk • 1½ cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeňo peppers • 1 jar (2 ounces) chopped pimiento, drained • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 2 teaspoons baking powdered1/4 teaspoon salt • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and butter; beat until fluffy. Add eggs and milk; beat until well blended. Beat in cheese, pimiento, and onion.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Add cream cheese mixture; stir just until blended. Spoon into a greased 5x9 inch loaf pan. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, remove from the pan and cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Serve warm or toasted. Cheers!

me for driving on the wrong side of the road in my Holden car. As it turned out, I shouldn’t have wasted my time worrying about it. The minute I saw him I recognized him as my good friend what’s his name? We had become friends at a Hereford sale. (That’s three syllables...Hair-a-ferd) After that, he showed me around New South Wales and even took me to a cricket match. The embarrassing situation that my friend, Ian, had referred to occurred during the match when I loudly asked him, “who he was rooting for?” Half the people in the stands got up and left. It seems that the word “root” is a VERY bad word in Australia. I had a great time showing Ian around, and he loved this country, although his most lasting impression of our country was how fat most Americans are. I must admit that was my first reaction after having lived down under and returning home. On our way home from the airport, Ian and I drove through a construction zone with big Caterpillar® tractors, scrapers, and dump trucks. Ian found it odd that every time a

large piece of equipment would back up that it would make the now-familiar sound... “ding... ding... ding.” “Why do they make that noise?” Ian asked. “For safety,” I explained. “When a large object backs up, it makes a warning sound so that people behind it will know that it is coming in their direction.” Ian seemed to grasp the concept. Later during the drive, we stopped at a convenience store for a cold drink and a Twinkie® or two. Standing in line in front of us at the checkout counter was the largest lady I’ve ever seen, which just confirmed Ian’s impression of Americans. The fleshy lady wore a phone beeper, the kind that sounds off when the wearer has a phone call. Sure enough, as we stood in line, the obese lady’s beeper went off.... “ding... ding ...ding.” My Australian friend jumped back out of her way and said to me, “Watch out, mate, she’s backing up.” Lee Pitts is an independent columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email him at leepitts@leepittsbooks.com.

his week I thought it would be appropriate to share a meditation on being thankful as we look forward to celebrating with family and friends on this coming Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. The apostle Paul wrote an important statement about Thanksgiving in the holy scripture: “In everything give thanks for this is the WILL OF GOD in Christ Jesus for you.” God desires that we be people who are always giving thanks to God. The psalmist,

David, stated this truth many times in the psalms: “ I will give You thanks in the great assembly; I will praise You among many people.” (Psalm 35:18). We are encouraged again by the apostle Paul to be “abounding” in Thanksgiving (Colossians 2:7). This Thanksgiving is obviously directed to God and, in reality, is a form of worship and appreciation for all He does for us. This worship indicates that the person giving thanks has a personal relationship with God. We have so much to thank Him for in our lives. In God’s love, He gave us His greatest gift, which was His beloved Son, to save us and provide us with an everlasting home in heaven when we die. Thanks to God that we don’t fear

death. In God’s goodness, He provides all we need to live a comfortable life. In God’s omniscience, we have His wisdom to guide us in this life. In God’s omnipotence and omnipresence, we have God’s power and presence to do everything that pleases Him and to do His will in our lives. We are given the strength we need to handle and overcome victoriously the challenges and difficulties of life. God cares about us personally and sincerely desires to answer our prayers that are according to His Will (1 Peter 3:12, 5:7, 1 John 5:14-15). We also have much to be thankful for to God as Americans. We are the freest people in the world. The founders of our beloved

country made this constitutionally possible. We can pursue our personal choices of vocations, education, religion, speech, and politics. These freedoms are a great blessing and something we should be enthusiastically thankful for before God. I personally believe that the most blessed country to live in is America. This is true because the founders of our country believed in God and trusted Him to take care of them from the very beginning. As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let’s worship, praise, and thank God for All he has done for us.

Point San Luis Memories A Guardsman’s Brother Remembers

Kathy Mastako

Board of Directors, Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers

oast Guardsman Richard W. Vezinaw and his wife Georgette lived for a year or two in the left side of the cinderblock duplex at Point San Luis built by the Coast Guard in 1948. Guardsman Gene Talcott and his wife Donna lived in the duplex’s right side. The duplex is “down the hill” from the historic portion of the site; guests walk by it on their way to the lighthouse. Rich served at Point San Luis from 1966 until 1967 or 1968. He was not a career military man. His father, who had served with the Navy in the Pacific campaign during World War II, suggested Rich volunteer for the Coast Guard in order to avoid being drafted and going to Vietnam. Point San Luis was his second and last assignment. Like many of the Coast Guard families stationed at Point San Luis, the Vezinaws had their first child while stationed there— Michael, born Sept. 2, 1966. Rich’s youngest brother Dan, who was eight years old when his brother was assigned to Point San Luis, spent part of two summers at the light station during 1966 and 1967. Their parents would bring Dan, two of his older brothers, and two foster broth-

(Dan believed there was a buoy that you needed to be able to see before turning off the signal, and you needed binoculars to see it.) Asked what the town of Avila was like, Dan said he didn’t remember spending much time there:

It was all about the lighthouse. We were fascinated with the lighthouse. We loved spending our summers there. We had paradise at our doorstep. Holidays at the Lighthouse Can you imagine what the holidays were like over a century ago? How people celebrated the season at this remote lighthouse? You can find the answers to these questions on Dec. 5 at our Annual Holiday Brunch. On the scenic ride from our van loading parking lot to the lighthouse, you will enjoy spectacular views of Port San Luis. Upon arrival at the Light Station, you will be served a Victorian-style champagne brunch, tour the handsomely decorated Keeper’s dwelling, and enjoy the soothing sounds of Brynn Albanese and her magic violin. Brynn performs at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Our dedicated volunteers have decorated the Keeper’s dwelling in a Victorian-style both inside and out. Dressed in period attire, docents will assist you on your selfguided tour of this historic site. All proceeds will be used for the continued restoration, maintenance, and operation of Point San Luis for the public’s education and enjoyment. For tickets, go to my805tix.com.

Mrs. Claus. One may even say his heart grew two sizes! Mrs. Claus talks about her favorite part of the night, “I like the ending of the night where the Grinch finally gives in, and I get to hug the children. That’s my favorite. That’s why I do it, just for the children.” Turning on the lights is just the beginning of Christmas festivities in Paso Robles. This Saturday, Dec. 4, is the 60th Annual Christmas Lights Parade. And the big man in red is sure to make an appearance. Mrs. Claus said, “I already texted Santa and said to pack his bags. He needs to be here next week for the parade!” Of course, the lights, carols, and cocoa are fun and, honestly, one of the best ways to begin the holiday fun, but the lights covering the Paso Robles City Park oak trees represent something that affects us

the Jewish romance author of Miracles and Menorahs, Stacey Agdern. Not to be confused as Jewish Christmas, the eight nights of Hanukkah actually commemorates when a small band of Jews [lead by Judah the Maccabee] took back the Holy Land from the hands of the Seleucid Empire [Syrian-Greeks] and rededicated the Holy Temple to God in 164 BCE. “One of my favorite things about Hanukkah is the theme of light. Not only do Jews use a Shamash, or helper candle, to light all the other candles on their menorahs, but Jews are also commanded to publicize the miracle, placing their menorahs in windows or outside their homes. In observant Jewish communities, you will see hundreds of menorahs lining the street. For me, the sight of all those menorahs, illuminating what would otherwise be a dark street, is a powerful reminder that we each have a sacred responsi-

Only one night’s worth of oil was found when The Maccabees went to light the Menorah in the Temple, but miraculously, it lasted eight nights while new oil was prepared for the candelabrum. Now, we celebrate our freedom from cultural assimilation by lighting eight candles over eight nights in our own menorahs. “As an adult, I’ve been cultivating my own traditions with my loved ones and family. Sometimes that looks like baking chocolate rugelach, lighting candles each night and reciting the prayers, or heading to our local donut shop for some sufganiyot (fried donuts, typically with a jelly filling). Each year is different, and this year is no exception but every year that Hanukkah knocks on our doors is a time to be reflective and thankful for those that bring light when there is darkness,” said bookstagramer (blogger), Rae Lipkin.

The word Hanukkah means dedication in Hebrew, and every year, we Jews are dedicated to eating traditional foods cooked in oil. The most famous of all these dishes are called latkes, which are the most delicious potato pancakes you’ve ever tasted. The only thing you need to figure out is: sour cream or apple sauce as a topping? “My family is not the most religious family, so it’s funny that Hanukkah was the most important holiday for me growing up. I don’t remember ever saying a full prayer as we lit the candles, but I do remember the hours spent with my cousins making and draining potatoes for latkes and complaining about oil burns on our arms,” said bookstagrammer Kate H. “I remember going to family friend’s homes and playing dreidel but never remembering what each letter meant, so I never remembered if I got the half pot or full pot [of Hanukkah gelt/chocolate coins] because I didn’t speak any Hebrew. But then stealing the whole pot anyway because I was the youngest

Each side of the Dreidel features a Hebrew letter. The letters Nun, Gimmel, Hei, and Shin are an acronym for “a great miracle happened there!” “Hanukkah has always been one of my favorite Jewish holidays. Even though it’s a more minor [religious] holiday for us, it has some of my favorite traditions! And because of the timing of the holiday, it is usually a perfect time to get together with family and friends. I personally love making latkes with my family at our annual Hanukkah party and going around the circle, opening our presents, and handing out gelt.

The town fun doesn’t end there!

THANKSGIVING CONTINUED FROM A1

Beginning of November, there were only 80 volunteers—over 100 short of what it takes to put together the dinner. However, Kudija says after getting the word out, volunteers signed up in droves, “The community really stepped up, and we were flooded with volunteer requests the last two weeks—we ended up having to turn volunteers away.” Now it is time for Kudija and his crew to soak in the rest of the holiday season and absorb what they learned from this year’s Thanksgiving. In January, they will go over what they learned and any new ideas for the next Thanksgiving. Lastly, Kudija says, “A tremendous thank you to the community, to all the media who helped us get our word out, to all of our volunteers. That’s who make this happen—this really is 100 percent a community event. We’re completely funded by the community. It’s community members who roll up their sleeves and pitch in and make it happen.”
