A New CMSF Queen is Crowned

School Board Addresses Mask Mandates Parents voice overwhelming support in-person to “set kids free” By PATRICK PATTON patrick@atascaderonews.com

ATASCADERO — The Atascadero Unified School District (AUSD) held a special School Board of Trustees Meeting on Thursday, Jul. 22, at 11 a.m. The purpose of the meeting was to share information regarding the current restrictions which will be placed on children who plan on returning to in-person schooling next month. Public comment was also heard in the form of in-person audience members and letters sent in from parents. Open session began with the pledge of allegiance and a moment of silence. Next, board President George Shoemaker announced that there was nothing to report from closed session. He then explained the purpose of the meeting, which was to present an informational item and allow oral communication from the public. The board voted in favor to move for oral communications 7-0. Superintendent Tom Butler then gave his report in which he praised the summer school program, provided an update on the “good progress” being made on both the removal of the B building and on the tennis courts. The Trustees approved the minutes from the meeting on Jun. 29 in a 7-0 vote and then moved on to administrative business regarding the revision of the AUSD plan for the reopening of schools in response to COVID-19. Superintendent Butler reiterated that today’s meeting was meant to be informational only and that at some point prior to the start of school, at a future board meeting, “the board will need to consider voting and approving a plan just like the one that’s here today.” “One of the elements that I’ve been sharing,” Butler said, “is that the trustees...and our staff—we’re the educational agency for this district, and our backgrounds are in education. Clearly, we’re not the public health office. I want to make sure that there’s some clarity there... and so that agency in the state of California that’s responsible for the health of the citizens in our state is the California Department of Public Health, and then they will branch down into the county departments of public health. That’s where you hear the mandates on the mask come from.” CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

PASO ROBLES — Eight young women contended in the California Mid-State Fair (CMSF) Pageant on Wednesday, Jul. 21. After showcasing her unique talent of speed-painting, modeling a glittering emerald evening dress, and answering a final ques-

tion, 21-year-old Yvette Fiorentino of Arroyo Grande was officially crowned as the 2021 CMSF Queen. “I’m overly thrilled and excited!” said Fiorentino. “I actually had to stop myself from crying on stage. It’s been a long time in the making—four years working at this—and I am just so thrilled, and I honestly feel like I couldn’t have followed up a better Queen. Mikaila Ciampi was amazing, and I just hope I can live up to what she did for this pageant and the Mid-State Fair.”

Fiorentino is attending Cuesta College, and her hobbies and interests include painting and horseback riding. She’s involved with the Woods Humane Society, a board member of the Portuguese Holy Spirit Society, a regular contributor to Vitalant, and a support assistant for RISE. Her awards and achievements include becoming 2019 Miss Congeniality, creating blankets for PAWS, and becoming a Veterinary Judge for FFA. Five words that describe her are outgoing, hard-working, compassionate, adventurous,

PASO ROBLES — If you have ever shown an animal at the California Mid-State Fair (CMSF) or walked through the livestock barns, you certainly encountered a lady in purple, JoAnn Switzer. As the Fair marks its 75th anniversary with the community, it also celebrates 75 years with JoAnn Switzer. Since 1946, Switzer has been involved with the Fair in one way or another. Switzer said, “It was a start, and it’s been nothing but go forward and bigger and better.” This year, Switzer decided it was time for her to take a step back and let the next generation take over the Fair. “I’m going to be 85 in September, and I don’t want to be one of those people who needs to get out of the way. So let the next generation do it,” laughs Switzer. Her history with the Fair began when Switzer was just ten years old. She joined the Pozo 4H Club and brought a lamb to show at the first CMSF—and it was that same year that Switzer became the Fair’s first Grand Champion for lambs. Then, the following six years, she won the 4H Grand Champion Steer. Switzer recalls walking her winning steers in the Parade of Champions that would happen in the Grandstand before the rodeo would start. The Fair has changed in many ways

First Runner Up was awarded to 18-yearold Cassidie Banish of San Miguel. “I’ve made my dream come true,” said Banish. “Being able to be a face of the Fair is something that is so exciting to me, and it’s just an amazing opportunity to have this spot for a year.” Second Runner Up was awarded to 23-year-old Megan Moffat of Paso Robles,

throughout its 75 (76 if you count 2020) years. When the Fair started, it was right after World War II. Switzer says supplies were low and white pants were nowhere to be seen, so show kids wore jeans and white t-shirts. Most kids will start showing animals in 4H and move into FFA once they reach high school. However, before 1969, girls weren’t allowed in FFA—something Switzer laughs about when she thinks back to her 4H days. In the early days, the Fair took place in September and focused on “country stuff,” as Switzer would say. Switzer laughs and says, “The Fair has come a long way from the horse race days and the fistfights on horseback.” People used to come to the Fair for the hometown competitions like nail driving, CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

LOCAL NEWS Good News • Real News • Your Hometown News LIVESTOCK AUCTION

FFA Members Prepared for California Mid-State Fair Replacement Heifer Sale and Junior Livestock Auction this weekend By CAMILLE DeVAUL

PASO ROBLES — 4H and FFA members are now breaking out their white pants and dusting off those National Blue jackets. FFA and 4H members across the county are gearing up for the California Mid-State Fair (CMSF), back in full force. Like almost everything else in 2020, the CMSF was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Rather than showing in person, students entered a 90-second video which was then sent to a judge. The livestock auction was then held virtually. Many of the students decided to opt out of submitting a video and tried selling their animals on their own rather than taking a chance in the virtual auction. Not only was the fair canceled, but the Wood-Claeyssens Foundation also

announced they would not be returning to the CMSF livestock auction. Since 2012, the foundation has been responsible for purchasing nearly half of the FFA and 4-H livestock animals up for bid at the CMSF. Each animal purchased by the foundation was also then donated to local food banks. In 2014, they donated nearly 90,000 pounds of meat to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County. Fortunately, the CMSF is back, and with it, the livestock shows and auction will function as they normally did before COVID. To fill the shoes of the Woods-Claeyssens Foundation, the James W. Brabeck Youth Legacy Fund “Buyer’s Coalition” was formed. The new coalition says, “After the cancellation of the California Mid-State fair due to COVID-19, and the change in years of support from the Wood-Claeyssens Foundation, it is essential to step in with a community-led group aimed at making a difference. Our group will assist youth exhibitors by purchasing projects and local families in need by putting student-raised protein right back into our food supply.”

Atascadero Block Shops

STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — CRATE Modular, a leading manufacturer of modular buildings made from reused shipping containers, announced on Jul. 19 the grand opening of “Block Shops,” a 1,900-square-foot retail and restaurant complex made out of steel shipping containers in downtown Atascadero. CRATE partnered with Z Villages to develop the project. The new retail complex brings with it Ancient Owl Beer Garden and Bottle Shop, Negranti Creamery, and custom hat retailer Stellar + Sun Hat Co. Opened by two local brewers Marcin Andruszkiewicz and Laurence Duterte, who spent time working with BarrelHouse Brewing Co., The Beer Garden boasts 20-25 taps with craft beers with a combination of locally sourced variants from California, the United States, and all over the world. “We couldn’t be more excited to have teamed up with a forward-thinking company like CRATE that not only has a high standard for energy efficiency but also saves a huge amount of time during the development process,” said Max Zappas, CEO of Z Villages. “We were able to handle the site infrastructure and improvements while CRATE was fabricating the containers... It was the perfect partnership.” The complex’s developer and general contractor is Z Villages Development Inc.; Radlab is the architect; Above Grade Engineering is the civil engineer; Budlong and Associates is the MEP engineer; and CRATE handled the factory-built scope of work, including procuring the containers, fabricating the openings, as well as some of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components. “Block Shops is a beautiful, modern project, and downtown Atascadero now has three new businesses to add to the growing roster of small businesses that are flourishing here,” Zappas added. Block Shops is located on El Camino Real between Traffic Way and Entrada Ave. The project’s creation began in 2019 when Z Villages stumbled on the Berkeley-based Fieldwork Brewing Company, which used the recycled shipping containers concept. Z Villages began working with Fieldwork’s architect to bring the concept to downtown Atascadero. “CRATE is uniquely positioned to help tackle challenges that exist in the construction industry today,” said Rich Rozycki, CEO of CRATE Modular. “We pride ourselves on the ability to quickly turn over projects that impact people’s daily lives, and we’re ecstatic to be a part of a groundbreaking project that utilizes steel shipping containers like Block Shops.”

talking to the kids about ‘hey, it’s not just about inside the classroom. Through FFA, there is a tremendous amount of opportunities,” Dadson shared. Justin Pickard, welding teacher and advisor for PRHS, echoed what Hildebrand and Dadson experienced. This year the livestock auction will be held in person and virtually, allowing more buyers to participate. Ways people can support the livestock kids is to donate to the Livestock Awards Program or James W. Brabeck Youth Legacy Project. Another way is to “add on” to a student’s price per pound of their animal. Buyers will be able to purchase add-ons virtually through Aug. 8. “The kids are working hard, and we’re trying to rebuild the steam. They’ve had so much taken away—show them there’s an end goal, work hard, and you get what you get,” said Dadson. The 2021 CMSF Replacement Heifer Sale is on Friday, Jul. 30, and Junior Livestock Auction FFA and 4H students return to Midis on Saturday, Jul. 31.

Central Coast Olive Oil Producers Come in Strong at NYIOOC 20 California counties competed in the International competition By PATRICK PATTON

CRATE Modular Celebrates Grand Opening of ‘Block Shops’ in Downtown Atascadero

But, just because the fair and livestock shows are back doesn’t mean all the students returned. Paso Robles (PRHS), Templeton (THS), and Atascadero (AHS) High Schools have all seen a decline in students showing animals this year. Chris Hildebrand, THS welding teacher, and livestock advisor, said their chapter had seen a 50 percent decline in kids showing this year. “It’s partly due to all the unknowns when the kids had to get their animals, and also part of it is due to the fact that the foundation won’t be coming back again. So there is no safety net for prices,” Hildebrand explained. Kyle Dadson, AHS livestock advisor, and AG teacher, also said their chapter had also seen a 50 percent decline in students showing livestock. Dadson says their decline is also due to uncertainty and because advisors have not been able to build a connection with the incoming freshman class. “We haven’t built a connection with the freshman class, so I’m having a little bit of a hard time developing the relationships,

NEW YORK — The New York International Olive Oil Competition (NYIOOC) is a worldwide competition. Producers from 20 California counties competed, and the Central Coast brought their A-Game. “The competition provides an honest, objective evaluation of our olive oil on the international stage, and it means a lot to our customers,” said Lynn Israelit of Spanish Oaks Ranch. “It gives them confidence that they are buying superior olive oils that are some of the best in the world! “ Gold medals were awarded to these Central Coast producers: San Miguel Olive Farm, Barton Olive Oil Company, Pasolivo, Tofino Estate, Spanish Oaks Ranch, Rancho Azul y Oro Olive Farm, Boccabella Farms, Enzo Olive Oil, Belle Farms, and The Groves on 41. To the milliners who pour everything into producing the best, winning the gold is a big deal. “We feel truly honored to win a Gold Medal from the NYIOOC, as it is considered the largest and most prestigious olive oil competition in the world,” said Kathryn Keeler of Rancho Azul y

Oro Olive Oil Farm. “It is another great endorsement from the elite of the olive oil world that we are getting it right,” said Karen Tallent of The Groves on 41. “Receiving a Gold award from the NYIOOC for our 2020 EVOO was extremely rewarding,” said Aaron Barton of Bartol Olive Oil Company. “Being recognized by such a reputable organization in a worldwide competition was validation that our EVOO is as great as we always believed it to be, and also brings recognition to California EVOO producers on the world stage.” “The foundation of our business is built on hard work and awards,” said Richard Miesler of San Miguel Olive Farm. “Each award has been a stepping stone to our success. Competing in a competition of 26 countries and 1,100 entries is a great feat.” According to the NYIOOC, their judging panel is made up of “a team of leading experts who follow a rigorous technical protocol to analyze each oil for its sensory characteristics and qualities... The NYIOOC is by far the world’s largest and most inclusive review of olive oils from every corner of the world. The results of the competition are followed by producers, importers, distributors, chefs, food service professionals, and journalists everywhere.” California producers had an excellent showing at NYIOOC this year, but the

highest concentration of California Gold Medal winners are produced right here on our Central Coast. “The superior quality of our olive oil comes from the unique microclimate and soil of our area, along with lots of patience and attention to detail!” said Marguerite Remde of Belle Farms. Producers attributed the Central Coast’s superior olive oils partially to our unique climate and partially to a love for knowledge, community, and collaboration between local producers. “The olive producers on the Central Coast take a tremendous amount of pride in producing quality extra virgin olive oil,” said Shaana A. Rahman of Boccabella Farms. “We are a collaborative community, and we share knowledge, resources, and time with each other to ensure that what comes from our Central Coast is the best. “ “The best weather and soils for wine grapes, of course very popular here, are the perfect combination for growing olives, too,” said Tallent. “Beyond this natural environment exists a wonderful collaboration of us small scale olive farmers readily sharing experiences, assisting our small community, and collectively encouraging us to stand out in such a crowded field.” “I think the reason the Central Coast region produces such excellent olive oil is partly due to the perfect Mediterranean climate we all enjoy,” said Israelit,

“but also because we focus on industry-leading practices to grow, harvest, and store our oils. We have a long-standing history of local grower organizations in our area that focus on education and collaboration. SLO [San Luis Obispo] county producers learn about best practices together and support one another in achieving them.” “The Central Coast of California is the best place to live and grow in the world,” said Barton, “and that includes the agricultural products produced here. We believe our climate, exceptional soil, and dedication to producing quality is why Central Coast producers fared so well at the NYIOOC this year and in years past.” “Many of the producers from this region are now much more seasoned,” said Keeler, “experienced producers and their farms and trees are more mature. With all of these factors combined, I believe the time has come for the Central Coast olive oil producers to shine on the world stage.”

Senator John Laird Visits the City of Paso Robles Meets with City leaders and community stakeholders STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — Representatives of the City of Paso Robles hosted Senator John Laird and his District Representative for San Luis Obispo County, Clint Weirick, on Thursday, Jul. 22, for a short presentation by the City that was followed by a meet-and-greet session with community stakeholders hosted by the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce. The City’s presentation gave an overview of Paso’s demographics, the City’s operating budget, and revenue sources, along with current challenges facing our community, including wildfires and homelessness. The presentation also outlined upcoming

opportunities for growth within the City and information on unfunded infrastructure embedded in the Gateway and Boys School Reuse plan projects. After the presentation, Senator Laird met with Mayor Martin and Mayor Pro Tem John Hamon to discuss recent or pending legislation that may assist Paso Robles in funding some of the larger infrastructure projects and other ways the Senator might support Paso Robles. “Mr. Laird has demonstrated a true concern for our community by his frequent visits to our city,” states Mayor Steve Martin. “I’m especially gratified that he recognizes our efforts to address housing, the homeless situation, and local economic development. I look forward to productive cooperation in the future.” Members of the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors

and Advocacy Committee met with the Senator to express interest in legislative efforts that positively support the business community. Participants included representatives of Cuesta College, Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance, and Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, along with representatives from the tourism and financial industries. “We were honored to host Senator Laird during his visit to Paso Robles,” said Gina Fitzpatrick, President of the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce, “and we anticipate more opportunities to inform his efforts as the Chamber continues to expand its policy and advocacy efforts.” Senator Laird was in town to finish his post-pandemic tour of each City Hall in San Luis Obispo County, as well as to meet with officials at the Mid-State Fair before presenting Senate Resolutions at

City of Atascadero expresses appreciation for the passing of SB 438 STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — On Thursday, Jul. 22, Senator John Laird made a brief visit to Atascadero’s City Hall. To demonstrate the City’s appreciation for Laird’s efforts on its behalf, the Senator was surprised by city officials and staff with an informal celebration that included pizza and carrot cake, which is Laird’s favorite dessert, accord-

ing to city officials. The Mayor, Heather Moreno, City Council, and City staff members were on hand to express their sincere gratitude to Laird for what he’s achieved on behalf of the City and citizens of Atascadero. The Senator was able to give a brief update on various items of local interest coming before the State legislature. The passage of Senate Bill (SB) 438 was sponsored by Senator John Laird and co-sponsored by Assembly Member Jordan Cunningham. The bill enables the City of Atascadero to receive repayment of three loans previously made to the former Redevelopment Agency totaling over $1.3 million, which the City could not have afforded to have forfeit. In addition, Senator Laird recently announced that as part of the State’s budget package, nearly $22 million will be provided to address critical needs along California’s Central Coast. This includes $3 million in additional funding for the City of Atascadero to improve and further develop critical downtown infrastructure and help the community achieve a swift economic recovery. “It was my sincere pleasure to partner with Mayor Heather Moreno, Council Member Susan Funk, and all of the hardworking city officials and city staff,” expressed

Laird. “As SB 438 moves through the legislative process, I am proud to confirm that the funds have been secured through the state budget for the benefit of all residents and visitors of the City of Atascadero. These funds will ensure the City can continue providing much-needed services and support to all residents. Across the Central Coast, we must work collaboratively as we rebuild from the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and this investment of state dollars in the City of Atascadero is a meaningful step in the right direction.” According to Mayor Moreno, “It was wonderful being able to thank Senator Laird in person today. We are sincerely grateful for his advocacy on behalf of the City of Atascadero and his unique understanding of local government, which has truly benefited the jurisdictions he represents.” Senator Laird planned to spend the entire day Thursday in the North County, including a visit to the California Mid-State Fair in neighboring Paso Robles, which he knows is very important to the entire County of San Luis Obispo. Senator John Laird represents the 17th State Senate District, which includes all of Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Luis Obispo counties, and parts of Santa Clara County.

Cal Poly Researchers Studying Food Challenges in SLO County Team Aims to Create Data-driven Food Policy for California STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — An interdisciplinary team of Cal Poly faculty members is working to create a coherent, coordinated approach to food policy to replace outdated and uncoordinated policies currently governing food systems and nutrition education. With a goal to address human and environmental health and address 21st-century food system challenges, including food insecurity, obesity, sustainable food production, and more, the student and faculty researchers have been working with the SLO Food System Coalition to help organize four roundtables to discuss local food system challenges. The group also started a food policy working group within the coalition. This work is an important first step in utilizing research findings to establish actionable policies working collaboratively with stakeholders in the local food system, including farms, businesses, health and food security advocates, and farm workers. These findings should provide a novel approach to developing and implementing sustainable food policy. Over the next year, the team also plans to complete a review on food policies as they exist now and pursue additional funding through grants related to food, nutrition, and agriculture. The project, titled “Eating in the Anthropocene: The Future of Food and Food Policy,” is grounded in the idea that we are living in the Anthropocene epoch, the time in which human beings have had a detectable impact on the planet. Through studying food systems and behaviors, the researchers hope to identify how food knowledge and behavior have changed over time and see what effects they have on the planet, at both the environmental and human level. The research team includes Dawn Neill of the Interdisciplinary Studies in Liberal Arts Department; Aydin Nazmi of the Food Science and Nutrition Department; Marilyn Tseng of the Kinesiology and Public Health Department; Nicholas Babin of the Natural

Resources Management and Environmental Sciences Department; Richard Volpe of the Agribusiness Department; and Elizabeth Lowham, interim dean of Graduate Education. “Our country’s food policies are outdated; the Department of Agriculture published its first food guidelines for Americans in 1916, and those initial recommendations have remained largely unchanged,” Neill said. “There have been so many changes in food production, distribution, availability, and human health over that time, and this discrepancy has created a barrier to Americans’ ability to eat healthfully.” Working closely with Cal Poly student researchers, the team will study what people eat and what drives people to eat the way they do. From this data, they hope to build “food narratives” that can link how food ideologies and behavior are related to food access, food insecurity, and food consumption, as well as to the human and environmental consequences of these choices. They will also analyze media archives from the past 125 years to understand how ideas and guidelines about food have changed and how effective guidelines have been in advancing nutrition education and sustainable food production. “Given our university’s excellence in agriculture, food, and nutrition, as well as being located in an area with so much food and agricultural production, Cal Poly is uniquely positioned to generate and apply new knowledge and solutions to help address these issues both locally and globally,” said Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore, Cal Poly’s provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. The project is funded through Cal Poly’s Strategic Research Initiatives (SRI) program, a partnership between Academic Affairs, Research, Economic Development and Graduate Education (R-EDGE), and University Development. The SRI program identified proposals from Cal Poly faculty and staff that addressed problems facing the Central Coast, California, and the world as a whole, and that placed an emphasis on the role of undergraduate and graduate student research experiences.

Atascadero Storage Wars Sitting Pismo Beach City Council member files suit against Atascadero City Council and members By PATRICK PATTON

ATASCADERO — On Jul. 13, the City of Atascadero was served with a lawsuit by Pismo Beach City Council Member Scott Newton, which alleges that Mayor Pro Tem Heather Newsom and Councilmember Susan Funk were biased against a mini-storage project being proposed by Newton and should have recused themselves from an appeal hearing before City Council on Jun. 8. According to court documents, Newton alleges that the Atascadero city council has engaged in a “campaign of delay and obstruction in processing Petitioner-Plaintiff ’s applications to develop a parcel of land properly zoned for self-storage and with the correct General Plan designation for self-storage.” The document also states, “Newton alleges that Respondents-Defendants are biased and they have acted upon their irrational animus and ill will towards Newton and the Project.” “We keep hearing about neighborhood compatibility,” said Newton. “Despite the number of times we’ve asked them what they want, none of them have been able to answer the question. My planner refers to what they want as a ‘unicorn project’—that is, something that may not exist.” The allegations of bias were also included in a letter from Kate Neiswender, Jun. 1 (“Letter”). City Attorney Brian Pierik prepared an eight-page Supplemental Staff Report that was posted on the City’s website with multiple exhibits responding to the bias allegations and concluded there is no merit to the claims. The complete Supplemental Staff Report is available at this link records. atascadero.org/weblink/ElectronicFile. aspx?docid=106416&dbid=0 or by contacting the City Clerk’s Office via email at cityclerk@ atascadero.org. The lawsuit makes no mention of the Supplemental Staff Report, which, accord-

ing to the City of Atascadero, had many responses to the bias allegations. Here are two examples provided by the City of Atascadero: The Letter and the lawsuit fail to mention the vote by Heather Newsom at the City Council Meeting on Jan. 28, 2020, in which Heather Newsom voted in favor of the motion to introduce the ordinance and remove the proposed change to the public zone and continue to allow mini storage by Conditional Use Permit. The Letter and the lawsuit also fail to mention that the Facebook page of Susan Funk includes a video she posted on May 7, in which she read from her appeal (Attachment 6 to Staff Report) and made the following statement: “...As council members, we are required to be open to all matters and not to make our decision before we have heard the full hearing and have everybody’s comment. That’s what the public process of public hearings is for so that we can have all that information, and everybody gets to have their say before the council makes a decision. And I very definitely am honoring that commitment and look forward to getting a picture that’ll help…maybe it’ll help some of the rest of you, but certainly it will help me in understanding this project.” The City released these statements in the first and only Press Release, which the City intends to issue in regard to this lawsuit. They want to remind the public that allegations in a lawsuit by a plaintiff must be proven in court. As such, the proper forum for addressing a lawsuit is in the courtroom, and the City, Mayor Pro Tem Heather Newsom, and Council Member Susan Funk intend to present their arguments to the court. As such, all of the above parties declined to comment on the lawsuit outside of a courtroom setting. In August of 2019, the Project went back to the Planning Commission and was approved on a 3-2 vote with two Commissioners absent. “Our hope is that the City Council action will be voided and that the Planning Commission approval will stand so that I can bring an excellent storage opportunity to the community of Atascadero,” said Newton.

JUSTICE SYSTEM

DA Dow Discusses Justice System with Senator Laird Dow urges legislation to close loophole when a teacher pursues a sexual relationship with a student STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow and State Senator John Laird, who represents the Central Coast, met to discuss public safety legislation that is pending before the California Legislature in Sacramento. At the top of the agenda, District Attorney Dow presented Senator Laird with a letter addressed to him and to Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham urging them to sponsor legislation in the next session that would make it a crime for a teacher, coach, or youth services worker to have a sexual relationship with a student under their care no matter the age. This legislation would close a loophole that currently exists when a teacher pursues a sexual relationship with a student who is 18 years of age or older. DA Dow also urged the Senator to sponsor a similar bill that would make it a crime for a law enforcement officer to have a sexual relationship with a victim of crime who the officer met during the performance of their duties as a law enforcement professional. Victims of crime who report their victimization are vulnerable and should never be taken advantage of. “I am grateful to have a solid working relationship with our local and state elected officials on issues of common ground such as public safety and victims’ rights,” said District Attorney Dow. “Students in our schools and vulnerable victims should never be taken advantage of for sexual exploitation by teachers, coaches, or law enforcement professionals. I am hopeful that the Legislature will take action to close these loopholes as soon as possible. I look forward to working with both Senator Laird and Assemblymember Cunningham on these proposals before the next session begins.” DA Dow’s letter to Senator Laird and Assemblymember Cunningham can be viewed by visiting slocounty.ca.gov. Senator Laird also received a brief tour of the District Attorney’s Office and met several staff members, including legal clerks, attorneys, and victim advocates, as well as Edgar the Courthouse Dog.

LOCAL NEWS COVID UPDATE

Governor Newsom Announces State Employee Vaccine Mandates CDC will withdraw request for Emergency Use Authorization Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel STAFF REPORT

S A N LU I S O B I S P O COUNTY — After introducing the “California Roars Back” plan, a part of the $75 billion budget surplus announced back in May, followed by hosting several “Vax for the Win” campaigns throughout June and July that offered prizes, trips, and cash winnings of $1.5 million per person for a total of $15 million. Along with a massive push for Californians to return to living life, Governor Gavin Newsom changed his tune on Tuesday and stated that now “We’re experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” Newsom’s statement followed a press conference held at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Oakland on Tuesday, Jul. 27. During the conference, it was announced that the State of California would require all state workers, workers in health care, and high-risk congregate settings to either show proof of full vaccination or be tested at least once per week (twice as a standard according to Newsom). In addition, Newsom encouraged all local government and other employers to adopt a similar protocol. “We are now dealing with a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and it’s going to take renewed efforts to protect Californians from the dangerous Delta variant,” Newsom said. “As the state’s largest employer, we are leading by example and requiring all state and health care workers to show proof of vaccination or be tested regularly, and we are encouraging local governments and businesses to do the same. Vaccines are safe— they protect our family, those who truly can’t get vaccinated, our children, and our economy. Vaccines are the way we end this pandemic.”

As stated, unvaccinated workers will be subject to at least one weekly COVID-19 test and will be required to wear appropriate PPE. This requirement also applies to high-risk congregate settings like adult and senior residential facilities, homeless shelters, and jails. The new policy for state workers will affect Aug. 2, and testing will be phased over the next few weeks. The new policy for health care workers and congregate facilities will take effect on Aug. 9, and health care facilities will have until Aug. 23 to come into full compliance. On Jun. 10, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned the public to stop using the Innova Medical Group SARSCoV-2 Antigen Rapid Qualitative Test for diagnostic use. The FDA explained they have significant concerns that the performance of the test has not been adequately established, presenting a risk to health. In addition, labeling distributed with certain configurations of the test includes performance claims that did not accurately reflect the performance estimates observed during the clinical studies of the tests. Finally, the test has not been authorized, cleared, or approved by the FDA for commercial distribution or use in the United States, as required by law. The FDA has identified this recall as a Class I recall, which is the most serious type of recall. Then on Jul. 21, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced that after Dec. 31 of this year, the CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel. The assay was first introduced in February 2020 for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. According to the CDC, the PCR test used solely in San Luis Obispo County and nationally is inaccu-

SMART CASE UPDATE

Investigators Reportedly Searching Rural Arroyo Grande For Kristin Smart’s Remains Citizens reportedly have seen Flores family return to the area repeatedly By CAMILLE DeVAUL

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Investigators have reportedly received tips from citizens who spotted unusual activity pointing to a particular area in rural Arroyo Grande. It was reported that after the release of episode ten of the podcast Your Own Backyard, Chris Lambert received dozens of tips from citizens on the Central Coast. On Tuesday, Jul. 27, investigators started following up on tips and searching for Kristin Smart’s remains in an area of rural Arroyo Grande that the Flores family has allegedly returned to multiple times. This is an ongoing story that will be updated when more information is available.

rate and could potentially risk false results. Therefore, they encourage laboratories to consider adopting a multiplexed method that can facilitate the detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. In May, after several reports were released regarding the inaccuracy of the PCR test, we asked the San Luis Obispo County Department of Public Health about the COVID testing and being able to tell the difference between COVID and influenza. Their response was, “In its own testing efforts at the Public Health Lab and those being conducted at our community testing locations, the County of SLO continues to utilize PCR testing now, at the same thresholds we have used throughout the pandemic... SLO County has identified PCR testing as a best practice and has therefore stayed with that method. This is also the method used for all confirmed positive cases logged in CalRedie, the state’s communicable disease reporting system. The County has also continued to test for influenza throughout the pandemic. However, we have seen very little influenza in comparison to COVID this flu season.” Along with the CDC’s information, it was also confirmed that the current testing for COVID-19 can not detect different strains such as the Delta variant. It has been reported that the COVID Delta Variant is what is causing the new outbreaks and hospitalizations to spike even though studies show that it is known to be more transmissible however not deadly. San Luis Obispo County Public Health announced that they will host a media briefing on Thursday, Jul. 29 at 12:15 p.m. to update the public on the status of COVID19 in the County and discuss the importance of getting vaccinated. On Tuesday afternoon SLO County reported that a resident in their seventies passed away due to

COVID-19, and 253 new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in San Luis Obispo County in the past week. It has not been confirmed if the resident had been vaccinated. With this death, it was reported that 265 SLO County residents have died due to COVID-19. Five residents are currently hospitalized, including one in the ICU. The County stated that five additional cases of the Delta variant have been identified over the past week and reported that only a small percent of COVID-19 cases are sequenced to determine their strain. Officials say the actual number of Delta variant is higher. How the County is testing for the various strains of COVID has yet to be confirmed. Also, on Thursday, the County Veterans Services Office will host a veteran outreach and vaccination event in Paso Robles. The event will provide veterans and their family members with community resources and information about potential Veterans Administration (VA) benefits. A San Luis Obispo County Public Health mobile vaccination clinic will also be on-site, offering vaccinations to all members of the community. The Paso Robles American Legion Post #50 will BBQ for the event, and all veterans who receive a vaccination on the day of the event will be given a free lunch. Lunch is available for purchase for those not receiving the vaccine. To continue the vaccine give-aways, all attendees who get vaccinated at the event will receive a $25 gift card. In addition, Veterans will also receive a second $50 gift card to Grocery Outlet, compliments of SLO Veteran Services Collaborative. The event will be held on Thursday, Jul. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Paso Robles Veterans Memorial Building located at 240 Scott St., in Paso Robles.

Local Parents Rally for Children’s Health and Rights Moms for Liberty stand up for parental rights at all levels of government By PATRICK PATTON

SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Friday, Jul. 23, crowds gathered in front of the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Government Center to rally for children’s and families’ rights to mask and vaccine choice. The rally was just one of many rallies organized by the SLO Chapter of Moms for Liberty that have occurred or are scheduled to occur over the next month. Moms for Liberty is a national organization that explains that they are made up of “moms, dads, grandparents and community members that have a desire to stand up for parental rights at all levels of government. The founders’ Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich, are two moms on a mission to stoke the fires of liberty. As former school board members, they witnessed how shortsighted and destructive policies directly hurt children and families. Now they are using their first-hand knowledge and experience to unite parents who are ready to fight those that stand in the way of liberty.” Moms for Liberty began with two small chapters in Florida, and in a matter of five months, grew to over thirty chapters in eighteen states.

“We launched Moms for Liberty because we saw parents who didn’t have a voice in the education system,” said Descovich. “It’s about empowering parents—women and men, mothers and fathers—to be the watchdogs of their district, to re-engage in their children’s education,” said Justice. “Your parental rights do not stop at the classroom door.” Political tensions surrounding masks and vaccines have been heating up as the return to school quickly approaches. Local school boards have made it clear in recent meetings that they have grown dependent upon Government funding which is— ethically or not— expressly tied to their political compliance. They now find themselves facing increasing pressure on a second front, in the form of concerned parents who would rather protect the health of their children than protect politically-motivated funding channels. “The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is funded by Pfizer. That is all you need to hear about that. Every decision you’re making here today is money-driven, just as the AAP. All we’ve heard about is the funding. When are you going to start worrying about the well-being of the children?” said Jennifer Grinager, Chair of the SLO Chapter of Moms for Liberty, as she addressed the Atascadero School Board on Jul. 22.. Grinager holds a Bachelors’ degree

Atascadero Structure Fire on El Camino Real Last Week STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services responded to a report of a structure fire at 1375 El Camino Real on Wednesday afternoon. The fire was quickly contained. Five local fire agencies responded to the incident, including Atascadero, Templeton, CalFire, Atascadero State Hospital, and Paso Robles. The fire caused damage to nearby fences and

symptomatic disease. As with Pfizer, the FDA announced in June it will place a warning label on the mRNA vaccines regarding a “likely association” between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and reported cases of heart inflammation in young adults. This inflammation may occur in the heart muscle (myocarditis) or in the outer lining of the heart (pericarditis) and is considered important but uncommon—arising in about 12.6 cases per million-second doses administered. The inflammation, in most cases, gets better on its own without medical intervention. Current Status: Emergency use in the U.S.; authorized for use in the European Union. On Feb. 27, the FDA granted emergency use approval for a different type of vaccine, called a carrier, or virus vector, vaccine manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. An analysis released by the FDA in late February showed that the vaccine might reduce the spread of the virus by vaccinated people. The FDA has attached two warnings to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. In July, it attached a warning after rare cases of the neurological disorder Guillain-Barré syndrome were reported in a small number of vaccination recipients. Most of the cases occurred within 42 days after vaccination. In April, the FDA added a warning label after ending a pause on the vaccine it had recommended “out of an abundance of caution” over an uncommon but potentially serious blood clotting disorder occurred in a small number of recipients. Current Status: Emergency use in the U.S.; authorized for use in the European Union (under the name Janssen).

One civilian sustained minor injuries but did not require hospitalization

COVID-19 Vaccinations Currently, the three COVID19 vaccinations in the U.S. are presented as safe and effective and still under emergency orders from the FDA. The CDC states that the COVID-19 vaccinations will help protect from getting COVID19, however as the current studies continue, reports show vaccinated individuals can still contract the virus. Currently, the FDA has granted emergency use of three COVID19 vaccines. On Dec. 11, 2020, Pfizer-BioNTech became the first COVID-19 vaccine to receive a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) after the company reported positive clinical trial data included news that the vaccine was up to 95 percent effective at preventing symptomatic disease. In June, the FDA announced it will place a warning on the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccines regarding a “likely association” between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and reported cases of heart inflammation in young adults. This inflammation may occur in the heart muscle (myocarditis) or in the outer lining of the heart (pericarditis) and is considered important but uncommon—arising in about 12.6 cases per million-second doses administered. The inflammation, in most cases, gets better on its own without medical intervention. Current Status: Emergency use in the U.S.; authorized for use in the European Union (under the name Comirnaty). The Moderna’s vaccine was the second one authorized for emergency use in the U.S.—it received FDA EUA on Dec. 18, 2020, about a week after the Pfizer vaccine. Moderna is also an mRNA vaccine, using the same technology as the Pfizer-BioNTech one and with a similarly high efficacy at preventing

approximately one acre of surrounding vegetation, along with structural damage to one home. One civilian sustained minor injuries during the incident but did not require transit to the hospital. The American Red Cross has been contacted to assist the occupants of the home that was damaged. At just about the same time, a large tree fell on Carrizo Road, approximately three-quarters of a mile from the fire incident, which took out several power lines and utilities. Initially, it was suspected that the downed tree and power lines caused the fire, but it was later determined that the two incidents were unrelated.

in Child Development and a Master’s of Science in Counseling, along with a license to practice Marriage and Family Therapy. According to the AAP website, “The AAP CATCH Program is made possible through the generous support of Pfizer, Inc, with additional support from individual donations through the AAP Friends of Children Fund.” The AAP website also states that “children were 0.00 percent to 0.26 percent of all COVID-19 deaths, and eight states reported zero child deaths,” since the advent of COVID-19, and “In states reporting, 0.00 percent to 0.03 percent of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in death.” Atascadero resident Christa Abma, a self-employed mother of five, argues that— at least in the case of children—the risk of physical and emotional health caused by wearing a mask is more dangerous than the risk posed by COVID-19. “For children... it’s a guaranteed daily risk versus the low chance of the child dying from COVID,” said Abma. “A child getting sick is normal—I’m not sure why we are acting like it’s not normal or even healthy for a child to build up their anti-bodies...let our bodies work how God designed them to work.” Grinager agrees, stating, “For children, in particular, I do believe that the risk from masks is far greater than the risk

of COVID. The CDC and CDPH have not been consistent with any information surrounding COVID since the beginning except for one thing, they have maintained all along that kids do not easily get COVID nor spread it...The CDC finally came out with their research on the matter a few months ago and have specified that kids don’t have ACE 2 receptors developed yet, something that is key in contracting and spreading COVID. Kids older than 11 years start to develop ACE 2 receptors, but they have a lesser amount. For the children who do get COVID, it is very mild; unless they have an underlying health condition that is serious, then they are at greater risk. The death rate of children in our Nation is .0003 percent. However, the death of children by suicide has gone up in our Nation, in some reports, as much as 300 percent. There is a long list of issues and problems being seen in children due to mask-wearing.” “Freedom to choose is all we are asking for,” Abma continued. “If you want your child to wear a mask, go for it. If your child wants to wear a mask, go for it. But no one should have to be forced to put one on their child. Just allow the kids to get back to normal schedule and routine...Schools need to go back to the basics, and the government needs to just let teachers teach, so our kids can learn.”

PASO ROBLES — Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services responded to two vegetation fires and a vehicle fire over the past 24 hours. On Tuesday, Jul. 20, at approximately 3:10 p.m. Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services, along with CAL Fire SLO County, responded to a vegetation fire in the Salinas River north of Highway 46. The ¾ acre fire

was contained within 20 minutes and fully extinguished after 2 hours. The fire was determined to be human-caused. Then on Wednesday, Jul. 21, at approximately 4:45 p.m. Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services responded to a fully involved vehicle fire extending to adjacent vehicles in the parking lot of 125 Spring Street; while responding to the vehicle fire, a vegetation fire was reported at 2715 Black Oak Drive also in Paso Robles. Two vehicles were destroyed due to the vehicle fire, and the vegetation fire was contained at 20 x 20. There were no injuries to the public or firefighters as a result of the fires.

O

n Monday, July 19th, 2021, Jeanette Johnstone (Stentzel) (Dinsmoor), loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away at age 69 in Paso Robles, California. Jeanette was born on

She is also survived by her sister Elaine and brothers Jim,

Judge Sentences Former Morro Bay High School Teacher STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Former Morro Bay High School teacher and swim coach Tyler Andree (25) was sentenced to serve 120 days in the county jail, be placed on supervised felony probation, and to register as a sex offender for 20 years for his crimes of having sex with a 17-year-old student and communicating with a minor with intent to commit a sexual crime. The plea agreement was approved by the Honorable Judge Michael Duffy at the time of the plea on Jun. 9. The terms of the agreement ensured that the defendant would be held accountable for his actions without subjecting the two young women to testifying in court and enduring the additional mental anguish of cross-examination by a defense attorney. Andree’s criminal conduct first came to the attention of Morro Bay Police Department on Jan. 11, when a woman from Washington State called to report that an inappropriate sexual relationship between

a Morro Bay High School student and a swim coach had occurred the previous academic year. It was also stated that the victim was 18 and had graduated in June of 2020. However, the reporting party was not willing to identify the teacher or victim by name. This prompted an investigation that led to identifying teacher and swim coach Tyler Andree as the suspect. The investigation revealed that Tyler Andree engaged in an improper relationship that included sexual intercourse on at least one occasion sometime in 2020 with one of his female students who was in the last semester of her senior year in high school. The student turned 18 during the semester. Due to the significant length of time that had passed before the crime was reported and investigated, there was a lack of forensic cyber evidence (obtained from the defendant and electronic communications providers) that could have helped to more accurately pinpoint the time of the sexual activity between the teacher and his student. According to the District Attorney, it is not a crime under California law for a teacher to have sex with a student who is over the age of 18. In 2012, the California

Legislature rejected Assembly Bill 1861, sponsored by Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen (R), representing Stanislaus County, that would have made it a felony crime for “any teacher or employee of a public or private elementary or secondary school who engages in a sexual relationship or inappropriate communication with a pupil of any age.” Later in 2020, Tyler Andree also engaged in sending inappropriate messages communicating explicit sexual intent with another 17-year-old female student. This conduct formed the basis for the felony conviction of communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a specified sexual crime. “There is no safe haven in San Luis Obispo County for people in positions of trust who take advantage of those who they are responsible to protect,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “This conviction will rightly ensure that Tyler Andree is never again allowed to coach, teach, or be in a position of care for children.” Tyler Andree is now a convicted felon and is required to register with law enforcement in the city where he resides every year on his birthday for 20 years. In addition, if he moves to another city in California, he will have to notify law enforcement in that town or city that he is a sex offender regis-

How to Avoid Being the Victim of Fraud or a Scam

DANIEL RICH COMMENTARY

U

nsolicited telephone calls are a common source of fraud or a scam. The caller will most frequently offer to give you car, home, life insurance, or burial insurance plan quotes. I have researched these and have uniformly found these quotes to be higher than what I am currently paying. Some callers will tell you that you have won a free or low-cost vacation trip, usually with a choice of dozens of locations. These are outright scams and even more inappropriate now with COVID-19

travel restrictions. Other callers will tell you that you have won a free medical alert system or a free home security system. What they will not tell you is that there is a monthly service charge. You may receive a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS claiming that you owe taxes and that if you don’t send them an immediate payment using gift cards, they will contact the police. The IRS does not conduct business by telephone, and additionally, they do not threaten you with police action. A caller may advise you that because you are a reliable taxpayer, the government will give you a grant, typically $40,000. All you have to do is send in $200 worth of gift cards! Totally bogus, of course! You may be told that the caller is investigating bank fraud and that they will get a large sum of money, but to show good faith, you need to

send money. Don’t fall for that nonsense. Offers to sell you an automotive extended warranty is another scam. Consumer experts recommend against purchasing extended warranties, especially for cars. Someone claiming to be a computer technician will claim that they have detected errors on your computer. Typically they want you to download a link that gives them control of your computer. Once this is done, they can give you malware or a virus. Never let anyone you don’t know take control of your computer. It is always bogus that they have detected errors on your computer. Don’t fall for it. One devious attempt to defraud is when a caller claims to be a relative, usually a grandchild, who is in jail and needs to be bailed out. Unfortunately, these bogus calls can be very convincing. Another scam is a caller

claiming that you have missed jury service and will be jailed if you don’t send gift cards. Of course, this is bogus! Perhaps the most common email scams are known as phishing. The sender claims to be from a company like Apple or Amazon and demands current identifying information, with the threat that if you don’t supply it, your account will be closed. Never click on any links in this type of email. Also, carefully check the return email address. It will not exactly match the legitimate address. Banks and companies such as Apple will not ask for email account information verification. However, note that you can always contact the customer service representative of the company in question. Never share your personal information, such as Social Security, driver’s license, or passport identification numbers. Also, never share

your personal banking information, such as account or routing numbers. You may receive an email telling you that the United Nations, the International Money Fund, or a Nigerian bank wants to give you millions of dollars. In return, they demand an advance payment fee, which may be a small amount or sometimes it may be several thousand dollars. Any fee request is a bogus red flag. Other scams are the claim that you have won a lottery, such as a BMW lottery. In addition, they may claim that even if you did not enter a lottery, your email address was selected. They typically want advance payment fees of thousands of dollars. All these lottery claims are bogus. You can not win a lottery that you did not enter, and to enter their lottery, you have to be a resident of that country.

Also, bogus is the scam where someone claims to be a lottery winner and wants to share their good fortune with you. Then there is the person dying of cancer who wants to share their millions with you before they die. Of course, these emails are always bogus. Some scammers, especially those pretending to be from the government, can be very aggressive and intimidating. They may even threaten you with jail if you do not share personal information, like Social Security numbers. Do not let them intimidate you. Additionally, never send them money using gift cards — that is never legitimate. Remember that if it seems too good to be true, then it likely is not true!

How to Deal With People Who Take Things Personally

VALENTINA PETROVA COMMENTARY

U

sually, people who take things personally refuse to admit it. They often project how they feel onto others, justify their emotional states, and make a mountain out of a molehill. They react to what they think is happening, not to what is happening. Meaning your perspective of the situation will be different from theirs.

You may find yourself accused of saying or doing things that have never crossed your mind, guilt-tripped, and blamed for the way they feel. You may find yourself on the receiving end of condescending, sarcastic, and provocative remarks, passive-aggressive behavior, even violence. Feeling confused, you may not know how to respond and what to do. You can ignore strangers who take things personally, walk away and never see them again. But what about people close to you? People you work with, live with, and possibly depend on? First, make sure you communicate clearly. Avoid “you” statements. Switch to “we” and neutral language,

especially when discussing difficult subjects. Instead of saying “you have a problem,” try “what can we do together to improve/resolve, etc.” In the spirit of clarity, it’s better to explain yourself a little more than to economize. You can also preemptively address the person’s possible reactions. “I know this may sound critical, and I am sorry. I value you and what you contribute...” Start your explanations with “from my perspective” or “the way I understand it…” to avoid sounding accusatory. If it sounds like you have to think ahead of how to express your thoughts, requests, and desires to someone taking things personally, you are correct. Yes, it is a lot of work! But it is less work than having

a full-blown argument or escalate a situation to the point of no return. Consider the challenge a growth opportunity. Take an effective communication class or read up on it and grow your communication skills. It will help you in other situations too. Second, know yourself, your worth, and pay attention to your emotional reactions. You may be fine around regular people but find yourself defensive and confused by an experienced, manipulative, overly sensitive person. Remember, they’ve had a lifetime to practice taking things personally. If you know who you are and your sensitivities, you can avoid confusion because you will know where your stuff ends and where their

defensiveness begins. You will know if you truly caused the commotion or it was their over-reaction. If you made a mistake, apologize for it. If you didn’t, say you are sorry for how they feel, remind them of your intentions, and even repeat your request or rephrase your statement more clearly. Keep yourself calm and levelheaded. Don’t add fuel to their fire. Do not apologize for anything you did not do. However, do seek to understand them and try to communicate your perspective. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes it doesn’t. Let it go. Agree to disagree or discuss later. Third, ask yourself if you want to be right or if you want

to be happy. Sometimes, you may have to be right. Another time, you may choose happiness. Decide based on the circumstances, what’s at stake, and the players involved. You choose your friends. You don’t have to keep the company of overly sensitive drama queens. Keep your distance. Minimize interactions. When you do interact, take their reactions with a grain of salt. This is your practice not to take things personally. But wait! There is more. Read the rest of this article on my blog at vpetrova.com.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR WHAT IS MOM’S FOR LIBERTY Dear Editor, What is Moms for Liberty? Moms for Liberty is a rapidly expanding nonpartisan 501(c)4 nonprofit organization based in Melbourne, Florida. Moms for Liberty was created by two Moms, Tiffany Justice, and Tina Descovich; both are former school board members that decided to do something about the problems that plague the public school system in America. Moms for Liberty members are attending school board meetings in 79 counties across 25 states. You don’t need to be a Mom to join Moms for Liberty; all that is required is a passion for our children’s education, their future, and the future of America. Moms for Liberty SLO has seen steady growth since our first board meeting in February of this year; currently, we are almost 1000 members strong. We are a diverse group of parents, grandparents, and community members currently focused on mask and vaccine choice in our schools, fighting Critical Race

A Note About Our

Theory curriculum, and starting learning PODS around the county. You can find the survey for learning PODS on our Facebook page if you are looking for an alternative to the public school system. The best way to make change happen is on a local level. There is strength in numbers; we have all seen the clips of fed-up community members speaking out at school board meetings, city council meetings, and board of supervisor meetings. If we don’t speak up, we can never make positive change. Community members have a voice. If you think you may be interested in making positive change in the way our children are educated, please consider Moms for Liberty of SLO County; we’d love to see you at school board meetings! For more information, please go to momsforliberty.org or send an email to Jennifer Grinager at jengrinager@yahoo.com. You can also find us on Facebook at Moms for Liberty San Luis Obispo County, CA.

GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM RECALL Dear Editor, A recent email was sent out stating that Gavin Newsom was going through a Republican recall attempt in California — one that is led by a collection of anti-mask, anti-vax, and anti-immigrant far-right Trump devotees. This could not be farther from the truth; this recall is being done by Californians that have personally been affected by Gavin Newsom’s mishandling and misuse of power, and he is getting ready to do it again. We are not Trump devotees; we are not anti-mask, we are not anti-vax, we are hard-working middle-class Americans who love California and are not willing to give up the most beautiful state in the county to career politicians. We deserve our freedom; we deserve to work hard, play hard and live life as independents. We do not need the government to tell us how to live. We want our

businesses to thrive, our farmers to be able to farm, our children to go to school, lower taxes, and we want someone to be accountable for the state budget. How in the world can you have all these millions worth of giveaways while local businesses are still closing and losing all they have worked for? All we want is to live independently; if you want to stay home, stay home, if you want to wear a mask, then do so; if you want the vaccine, then get it; if you don’t, that is your choice. We are responsible for ourselves; we are not responsible for each other. We need to start being respectful to each other again. It is time the people of California take it back, stop living in fear, get back to work and start living again. We are missing out, and before you know it, the time will be gone. Enough is enough! Tim Cook Paso Robles

IN RESPONSE TO MOM’S FOR LIBERTY Dear Editor, I was bothered by some of the comments I saw online regarding the Mom’s for Liberty who have joined together to fight for our children. There is so much going on in the Nation today that goes against all the fundamentals that made me proud and honored to raise my children here. All of the parents who are fighting for our kids’ rights and freedoms should be looked at as heroes. They are offering solu-

tions, they are kind, yet they are fierce. It is time that we stand together, take our schools back, and fight for the future of our country for our children and grandchildren because if we don’t, there will be nothing left for them. We are the last line of defense. I would suggest you stop reading any mainstream media, start doing your own research, and get involved. This is much bigger than us all.

OFFICIALS, MASKS, & HEALTH GUIDELINES Dear Editor, The School Districts have to follow state health guidelines, regardless of what Mom’s for Liberty believe. Many people wrote in requesting the district have a cohesive plan that follows state and health guidelines.

The people that came in to speak at the Atascadero School Board meeting did not have any masks, which is why most people in opposition did not go in. We should listen to the health officials and wear masks.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can

receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 or visit this Internet Web site www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 129680-1. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

Trapped

ecause I’m one of the great cow trappers in western folklore, I am often asked to relate my harrowing experiences as a student of the art. Cow trapping, as you may know, is very much a lost art amongst today’s macho cowboys. That is because when a few wild strays are left behind on a modern-day round-up, a crew of cowboys usually goes out and either ropes them or shoots them. I, on the other hand, trap them. There are several reasons why I prefer this method. Number one, I can’t rope, number two, I can’t shoot, and number three, my horse, Gentleman, is too slow. Perhaps my proudest moment as a cow trapper occurred recently when I accidentally left behind two cows and one baby calf on a recent gather. One attempt at collecting them later on horseback convinced me

it was time to strap on my Daniel Boone cap and trap the runaway beasts. Every time I approached the trio with Gentleman, they went on military maneuvers, divide and conquer. The first prerequisite in being a good cow trapper is to be able to think like a cow. This is no problem for me. As I informed my wife, “If we just park the feed truck in the corral, they will see it and come running into the corral hoping to be fed, and then you can just shut the gate on them.” All through the day, my wife waited patiently as the confident cows stood on the hill laughing at her. “Some cows are trap smart,” I told my doubtful wife as we plotted our next strategy. “If we shut the water off on them everywhere, but in the corral, they’ll have to come to the pens,” I said. “We are, after all, in the midst of a drought, and there are no running streams or springs where they can sneak a drink.” So we shut the water off in their field. After two weeks and still no sign of the trio, I thought sure I’d find them out in the hills dying of thirst. You can imagine my surprise

when I found them in the back of the ranch with mud up to their bellies. It seems they’d dug their own shallow well. At this point, the strays were making me mad, and my wife was rapidly losing confidence in my abilities as a cow trapper. “We’ll have to bait them,” I told her. Now, most inexperienced trappers would use only the best number one alfalfa hay for bait. But this is a big mistake. My cows know that I would never spend that kind of money on them, and they would get suspicious. “We’ll use that old rain-damaged barley hay leftover from six years ago for bait,” I informed my still skeptical wife. “After she moved a few old moldy, smelly bales that broke apart on impact, she was wondering to herself why she ever allowed herself to get caught in my trap. In giving my wife final instructions, I said, “When the stupid cows enter the corral to eat the hay, I will be poised on the other side of the hill on my trusty steed Gentleman. On a signal from you, the honking of the truck’s horn, I will come charging over the hill on Gentleman,

run down to the corral gate, jump off my horse and close the gate on the cows and they’ll never suspect a thing.” At this point, my wife was laughing hysterically. When I heard the honking of the horn, I knew that my plan was working. I took off on Gentleman on the fly, but as I topped the hill, the baby calf member of the trio caught a glimpse of the speeding blur and alerted her mother and her aunt. From that point on, it was a race to the gate. Actually, I’ve seen Gentleman run faster, like back to his stall after we failed once again to corral the cows. We just stood there dejected with our tails stuck between our legs as the cows headed for the farthest corner of the ranch. My wife was smirking about our failure and made the snotty comment, “I guess I should have married a better cowboy.” “No,” I retorted, “you should have married a better horse.” Lee Pitts is an independent columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email him at leepitts@leepittsbooks.com.

believe that Joseph’s previous forgiveness was sincere. They thought that Joseph’s forgiveness was based on his love for his father and not a sincere love for them. When Joseph heard this message, he became very sad and wept. Joseph did this because it deeply hurt him to think that his brothers didn’t think his forgiveness was genuine (Genesis 50:1618). Joseph reassured them of his love and forgiveness, and they were not to be afraid that he would do anything to hurt or harm them. He knew that God had divinely planned and allowed him to suffer, but it was for his good and the good of his family. A divine perspective of life enabled him to be a forgiving person. Joseph is one of the best examples in the Bible of a forgiving person. Forgive-

ness enabled Joseph not to seek revenge or become bitter and angry (Genesis 50:19-21). Forgiveness caused Joseph to become a loving and caring person. This was a special blessing from God. Lessons Learned 1. Loving forgiveness will prevent a person from seeking revenge that will hurt people. 2. Loving forgiveness will prevent a person from becoming a bitter and angry person. 3. God can supernaturally enable a person to practice gracious forgiveness. This will produce a peaceful and kind heart.

Counter-Human Trafficking Task Force World Day against Human Trafficking, Observed July 30 By SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTER-HUMAN TRAFFICKING TASK FORCE BOARD

W

Human trafficking knows no geographic border, affects all socioeconomic statuses, and is a societal problem

FOR RESOURCES ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING, THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED: (These organizations collaborate directly with task force investigators) • DeliverFund deliverfund.org • Resilient Souls resilientsouls.org • North County Abolitionists nocoabolitionists.org • The National Human Trafficking Hotline 1-888-373-2373 humantraffickinghotline.org/resources

orld Day against Human Trafficking, observed on July 30, has our community thinking, talking, and posting about human trafficking’s impact on our communities and what we can do to abolish it. This is huge. San Luis Obispo County has an Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force and a Counter Human Trafficking Team. Both groups want to be sure that our community has access to relevant and accurate information about what human trafficking looks like on the Central Coast while providing resources and the ability to help in the fight. Our goal is to educate the community, help victims, and hold traffickers accountable, and we need your help. Human trafficking takes place all year long, and the goal of abolishing human trafficking deserves our attention day in and day out. Human trafficking takes no holidays and is not deterred by a pandemic. Many statistics show that human trafficking has spiked with the onset of COVID-19. Human trafficking knows no geographic border, affects all socioeconomic statuses, and is a societal problem. We all have the capacity to fight in some form. Human trafficking is a lucrative and profitable industry with surprisingly low risk. It is a crime that continues to flourish despite the Task Force and law enforcement entities’ recent efforts to intervene and stem the tide of exploitation. Human trafficking is often referred to as a form of “modern-day slavery.” This description is given based upon the forced exploitation of another human. It involves the use of force, fear, or coercion to obtain labor or commercial sex. In 2000, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act was passed, and human trafficking was clearly defined into two categories: labor trafficking and sex trafficking. Labor trafficking is defined as the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining a person for labor or services through force, fraud, or coercion. An example would be forcing someone to work long hours without adequate compensation in inhumane conditions. Locally, sex trafficking is the most prevalent of the two. Sex trafficking is defined as a commercial sex act (forced prostitution) induced by force, fear, or coercion, or when any individual under the age of 18 is forced to perform such acts. While both sex trafficking and labor trafficking deserve intervention and disruption, commercial sexual exploitation has been the primary

focus of local counter-trafficking efforts. Human trafficking is not the same as human smuggling. Human trafficking is a crime against a person, while human smuggling is a crime against a border. Key differences are that there are a border and transportation involved in smuggling, and the actions of people involved are generally voluntary. Conversely, sex trafficking involves a person, no border crossing is required, exploitation is a key component, and the victim’s involvement is not voluntary. What does all of this mean to the Central Coast, and what is being done to combat this cruel and heinous crime? For starters, it should be recognized without a doubt that human trafficking is present and thriving on the Central Coast. The face of human trafficking is neither what was portrayed in the movie “Taken” starring Liam Neeson, nor is it the glamourous life of a prostitute depicted by Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.” While there is a low likelihood of our children being kidnapped off our local streets and being forced into sexual servitude, families should still be aware of the dangers of human trafficking and the predatory nature of the traffickers. As parents, neighbors, coworkers, and friends, we need to know our communities are not immune to predators, whether they are homegrown, on the internet, or merely passing through town. A goal of our community should be to make it undesirable for traffickers to operate here. Generally, the crime of human trafficking has been under-identified and under-investigated. This is because human trafficking is an evolving and developing area in the law, and until the past few years, it has not been properly and consistently identified for what it is — a crime. Training for law enforcement and the community has increased recently. A paradigm shift is taking place within the law enforcement community where “sex workers” are handled as victims rather than perpetrators. The traffickers are now the true targets. In terms of labor trafficking, only 4 percent of law enforcement personnel have ever investigated the crime of labor trafficking. Sexual exploitation and trafficking have become more of a focus within the law enforcement community. However, like labor trafficking, it is still often under-investigated in many regions despite efforts to make it a priority. Staffing and resources are typically

the biggest hurdles. The good news is that training, education, and enforcement are increasing. Now more than ever, multi-disciplinary collaborations and collaborative investigations are being made locally and nationwide. Why does human trafficking thrive on the Central Coast? It is our geography, affluence, and relative safety. Our location is convenient. We are halfway between Los Angeles and the Bay Area. There are major highway arteries connecting the Central Coast to the Central Valley and big cities like Sacramento. Many of the victims that are brought to the Central Coast come from these more prominent communities. San Luis Obispo County is a natural travel corridor for sex trafficking and a lucrative destination due to the Central Coast’s relative affluence and the fact that many residents have disposable income that can be spent on prostitution services. Sadly, the Central Coast has become part of a statewide “circuit” that traffickers utilize while trafficking victims throughout California. Additionally, the Central Coast is relatively safe, causing traffickers to believe they can operate free of competition or worry of detection. Most people would be shocked and saddened to know how simple it is to procure prostitution services in our communities. All of this begs the question: What is being done? In 2014, the San Luis Obispo County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force was formed. Since its inception, the task force has gathered individuals from countless disciplines to educate the community, develop resources for victims and those at risk of being exploited, and ensure that human trafficking instances are investigated. In mid-2019, a partnership was forged between the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation and the Sheriff ’s Office. At that time, a Counter Human Trafficking Team was formed with two full-time detectives assigned to investigate human trafficking proactively. As a result, numerous investigations have been launched to disrupt the supply and demand side of the human trafficking market in San Luis Obispo County in the last two years. These investigations have resulted in the rescue of victims, apprehension of purchasers and traffickers, and the formation of community relationships that will hopefully aid in the abolishment of human trafficking in our communities. There is work yet to be done.

Human Trafficking the Pandemic of the 21st Century

J

By HAYLEY MATTSON

ul. 30 is recognized as the World Day against Trafficking in Persons. The annual day was established in 2013 by the United Nations General Assembly, who evaluated the Global Plan of Action and brought more awareness to the epidemic. Supporters from all over the world are invited to host or participate in RISE UP Demonstrations on Jul. 30. Every year people across the globe rally together in support of World Against Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Last year several communities along the Central Coast held peaceful awareness walks as a way for supporters to speak up and start conversations about human trafficking in their communities.

According to reports, the resolution referenced two significant ways by which the issues can be addressed; one by criminalizing the practice in all its forms (by traffickers and any intermediaries), and by engaging the private sector in combating human trafficking through “focusing on the demand that fosters all forms of trafficking and the goods and services produced as a result of trafficking in persons.” Combating human trafficking is a combined effort and requires many factors working together. Especially since human trafficking has been called the “pandemic of the 21st century.” Research shows that the coronavirus pandemic has opened an opportunity for human trafficking more than ever before. According to reports, COVID19 has slowed down much of the econ-

omy, but in the realm of illegal activities, sex trafficking has not decreased, as the pandemic has made “vulnerable people more vulnerable and more susceptible, if they are not already being trafficked, to being trafficked. On top of that, the pandemic has made reaching out to trafficking victims even more challenging. Additional consequences of the lockdown are that young people have been more online, putting them at risk of online traffickers. However, it is still unclear how the lockdown has impacted online child exploitation; it has been reported that “chatter in dark web forums indicate that offenders have taken advantage of the pandemic to commit more offenses against children.” We are facing an urgent crisis that has been overlooked and hushed within our society for decades. We must start the

conversation, educate our children, and be aware of our surroundings. Together, we can create a safe haven for our communities, a place where the victims can go and report illegal activities. To get help or report a tip, the national human trafficking hotline number is 1(888)373-7888. Did you know? People are trafficked for sexual exploitation, forced labor, forced begging, forced marriage; for selling children and as child soldiers, and the removal of organs; Women make up 49 percent and girls 23 percent of all victims of trafficking; Sexual exploitation is the most common form of exploitation (59 percent share) followed by forced labor (34 percent share); Most victims are trafficked within their countries’ borders – those trafficked abroad are moved to the wealthiest countries.

who said of the title, “it means so much to me. I’ve always wanted to do this, and now I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone, and I did it, and I was rewarded for all my hard work.” The title of Miss Congeniality was awarded to 20-year-old Halley Frederick of Paso Robles. She said the title meant she was “the mom of the group basically, the one who is always prepared, so it was really fun to take care of everyone in this pageant.” Mikaila Ciampi, 2019’s CMSF Queen, along with 2019 Princesses Mary Hambly and Cara Bullard, will go down as the longest-reigning court in CMSF history due to the cancellation of last year’s CMSF and have dubbed themselves the “COVID Court.” Ciampi handed down the sash and crown to Fiorentino after a touching farewell speech. “These past couple years as Miss California Mid-State Fair Queen have been quite a whirlwind,” said Ciampi. “Being the first queen to reign for two years has been an exciting adventure that I am so blessed to have embarked on. I am grateful to have served the Fair and my community during the pandemic. Selling popcorn for the Fair’s drive-in movies, attending all the Fair markets in crown and sash are some of the great memories that no other Queen in history has been able to share, and I wouldn’t have wanted to experience these unique events with anyone other than Kara and Mary [2019 CMSF Princesses]. You both have offered me so much support the past couple years. From parade waves to fancy dinners to becoming the ‘COVID Court,’ I am so glad we were able to join the sisterhood together! Thank you for our friendship.” “It will be bittersweet to hand the crown down to the next court,” said Hambly, 2019 First Runner

This year’s rodeo finals were held in the covered arena rather than the Grandstand. Although the finals were held in a smaller arena, Roth said he enjoyed the small town and old-fashioned atmosphere. “[I was] Grateful they had the Fair. I loved it because the crowd is so close to you in the little arena, and I think it was fun for them,” said Roth. For the full list of results, visit atascaderonews.com

show in general after this last year we had, but it was extra special that it was in my hometown!” D.J. Sinister spun a “country-fried mix” to keep the crowd moving between the opening and headlining acts before introducing and performing alongside Big & Rich. The performance consisted of a mix of country-rock, throwback medleys, and showstopping patriotism. The crowd was led in a chorus of God Bless America, and at one point, active duty service members were brought on stage, and each spoke to the crowd on why they decided to join the U.S. Military. The service members remained on stage for the rest of the show at their own V.I.P. table stocked with Redneck Riviera Whiskey. Special guest Cowboy Troy joined the performance during Big & Rich’s set. The trio performed a marathon medley of country, rap, and throwbacks from decades past. Finally, Big & Rich capped off the night with their smash hit Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy) from 2004’s triple-platinum album Horse of a Different Color.

SWITZER CONTINUED FROM A1

mare and foul races, and more. Switzer says the loss of these activities is one of the biggest changes of the Fair throughout the years, along with the loss of the PRCA rodeo. She remembers World Champions competing at Paso’s rodeo before heading down to compete in Los Angeles. Showing livestock was just the start of Switzer’s involvement with the Fair. She served on the Fair Board for eight years from 1986 to 1994, and then in 2004, she became the Livestock Superintendent and has since served the position for 17 years. “From the time I started showing here, the support and generosity of this community only got bigger and better. It always continues, and without that, the Fair would not be what it is,” said Switzer. She continued, “Even last year when we had COVID and shutdown, people still stepped up and supported the kids. We are a unique community for that—support for not only the auction but throughout the Fair. We are so blessed to have what we have.” In 1987, Switzer and the late Dick Nock put together the first Cattleman and Farmers day. Each year since, farmers and ranchers come to the Fair for the Cattleman’s luncheon and dinner.

Up. “I’ve enjoyed being a part of the ‘COVID Court.’” “It’s been crazy,” said Bullard, 2019 Second Runner Up. “We had all the usual business of the Fair. Then COVID hit, and we got to do all of the parades and events all over again!” Uncertain whether the fair would be held this year at all, this year’s group of contenders had a much shorter preparation period than is typical. “I’m looking forward to seeing the girls who have worked so hard these past six weeks,” said 2012 CMSF Queen and Pageant Coach Savannah Romero. “They usually have two months to prepare.” “It means the world to me,” Fiorentino said. “It means that I get to watch little girls’ and boys’ faces light up when I walk down. I get to see them say, ‘it’s the queen, mom, it’s the queen!’ I’m planning to fulfill my duties by showing up at every event I’m needed at and doing to one hundred percent of my ability and making sure my girls are with me for everything, so none of them feel left out.” “It has been, I think, 32 years this year, so its taken off and been an amazing event,” said Switzer. For many, it is like a family reunion, and one of the most looked forward to events. This is also when the Cattleman of the Year is announced. Switzer was the first woman named Cattleman of the Year back in 1992. Following her, only two more women have been named Cattleman of the year, Dee Lacey and Elena Twisselman-Clark. While Switzer may be retiring this year, she won’t be straying very far. The livestock barns and the people that fill them will always hold a special place in Switzer’s heart. She says, “It’s fun to see these kids that have gone through the program and stayed in the community and have become adults, and then they’ll come back and help, which is special to me that they will give their time and come back because they got so much out of the program. That’s what makes me continue to do it.” This year Switzer’s great-granddaughter begins showing at the Fair, making her the fourth generation Switzer to show at the Fair, following all four of Switzer’s sons, Mark, Thomas, Joel, and Jeff. Yes, Switzer will be taking a step back after this week, but she will always be there to help the next generation.

AUSD CONTINUED FROM A1

Butler then reminded the public that AUSD is also an employer, which means that they have to be mindful of CalOSHA. He also informed the public that the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Department of Public Health has reasserted the mask mandate for students and staff to wear a mask in a classroom setting, regardless of vaccination status. This applies to both public schools and private schools. Masks will be optional in an outside setting, including before school, lunch, recess, passing periods, athletics, and after-school activities. Butler stated that vaccines are not required for students and staff at this time and that as a district, they are not collecting any information about vaccination status. He then presented a caveat in which an individual could be approached and asked about vaccination status by a San Luis Obispo County Department Public Health worker, as they are actively engaging in contact tracing. “Now it’s that individual’s choice whether they want to divulge that or not,” Butler said. “That’s their own private business, but you could hear people get questioned about it in a contact tracing scenario.” “To set the stage for the school year,” Butler continued, “we’re going to be fully open—a full school day, full class size... all extra-curricular, all co-curricular activities will be in full force, and we’re glad to have all those back.” Butler then encouraged the public to consider sharing feelings and opinions with the SLO County Department of Public Health, County Supervisors, and Elected State Officials. He shared that a

resolution is being talked about among the trustees, which could come at the next board meeting, in which the board would communicate a public statement to a board of public officials. The resolution would make a case for safely opening our schools based on SLO County’s health metrics as opposed to state-wide statistics. Trustee Ray Buban brought up the issue of litigation protection. Butler responded by citing advice from legal counsel, which is to follow the public health agency’s guidelines. “If we’re following the general health guidelines established by health professionals, that would lower our litigation risk should anything happen.” Trustee Mary Kay Mills then asked about the recently released state guidance, which seemed to indicate that each individual district would have the option of whether or not to require masks. Butler called this “really misleading information, frankly. The masks are still required once again in a K-12 classroom setting. The level in which the districts have local control is in enforcing it...does it become a student discipline issue? Are there procedures? How are we going to engage with families if they were to send their child to school without a mask?” Butler described a “compassionate” approach in which the parents would be contacted and provided with other options such as distance learning, independent studies, and homeschool. Trustee Mills pressed further, asking, “so like myself, if Cayden doesn’t attend school this year because she’s required to wear a mask, then is ACE Academy an option?” Butler affirmed that virtual learning would be an

Cholame native Callie Twisselman opened for Big and Rich at the California Mid-State Fair Grandstand arena on Friday, Jul. 24. Twisselman was joined by family backstage cheering her on, option in this case. Trustee Corrinne Kuhnle then asked, “should we open with the mask mandate, and then as time moves on...they take the mask mandate away—if you are a parent who has enrolled your child into the virtual program, or ACE Academy, how difficult would that be for them to go back to the classroom after they’ve started?” “It won’t be difficult for our parents,” Butler responded. “It may take a little shuffling, but we certainly want to be very responsive at that moment. We want to do that in a timely turnaround so that we can act very quickly.” Trustee Buban then reminded parents that on Page 9, number E of the proposal, a doctor can provide a note of exemption from the mask mandate for students. Buban then asked, “If we don’t follow the mask mandate, what are the consequences to the district besides the litigation?” Butler answered that “there are some funding sources that are attached to following the guidelines and having a board-approved plan... and some of those are in the tune of millions of dollars, and so those would be at risk of being lost.” Executive Assistant to Superintendent Stacey Phillips then read aloud the correspondence the board had received, all of which addressed the mask mandate. There were nine letters read. Seven of the letters were in favor of compliance with mask mandates, and two were in favor of personal choice for all families. Finally, members of the audience spoke on the mask mandate. Fourteen speakers weighed in, all of whom spoke in favor of personal choice regarding masks. The prominent themes were a need for tolerance toward children of all beliefs,

“It was a family affair backstage.” Growing up on her family’s seventh-generation grain and cattle ranch in Cholame, Twisselman was surrounded by family— something she is grateful for. This is Twisselman’s second time opening for a big act on the Grandstand Arena. A few years ago, she opened for Florida Georgia Line at the Mid-State Fair. Because of COVID, many of Twisselman’s live shows were canceled, so being back on stage was more than exciting for her and the band. “I didn’t get nervous. It was more exciting than anything because we haven’t played a live show in a while in general, but then that one is an even bigger live show than normal. It was fun.” Twisselman explained getting back together with the band was just like riding a bike. Pulling up backstage and setting up for the concert was surreal for Twisselman. Luckily she had her family there with her every step of the way. After her set, Big Kenny of Big and Rich spoke with Twisselman, “He came up to me and found me and said you ‘rocked it!’” Twisselman said she is looking forward to booking more live shows when she is back in Nashville, along with starting some new projects. The singer hinted that she might be collaborating with another artist soon. Keep up to date on Twisselman’s musical endeavors by following her @callietwiss and visiting callietwisselman.com. the importance of following science and data as opposed to government regulation, the negative impact of masks on children’s physical and mental health, big tech’s censorship of accurate and pertinent information, and a conflict of interest in the source of funding for the one of the agencies guiding policy. “The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is funded by Pfizer. That is all you need to hear about that. Every decision you’re making here today is money-driven, just as the AAP. All we’ve heard about is the funding. When are you going to start worrying about the well-being of the children?” said Jennifer Grainger, Chair of the SLO Chapter of Moms4Liberty. “We know that they are not at risk for getting COVID. Virtually no child is...you’re proposing causing other illnesses in children, causing lifetime mental health issues in children over a 0.0003 death rate.” Perhaps the biggest encouragement to parents struggling with the lack of educational options was the rise of practical solutions being proposed by the audience members. Parents have set up trailers with tutors to assist homeschooling families, and Moms4Liberty has a mask-free full-time school in the works for the fall. Grainger says they have secured funding sources, teachers, and churches who are willing to help make this a reality because they “are not willing to participate in the abuse any longer.” The sentiment of the public comment was perhaps best summed up by parent Kim Paul’s plea to “set our kids free.” Once all public comment was heard, the meeting was adjourned. The next AUSD Board meeting will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 3, at 7 p.m.
