HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH

Disneyland Welcomes Back California Residents By CAMILLE DeVAUL camille@pasoroblespress.com

ANAHEIM — Wishes came true for many on Apr. 30 when California’s Disneyland reopened its gates after 412 days of closure. On Mar. 14, 2020, Disney Parks closed its West Coast doors after California went into its first COVID-19 lockdown. After the longest closure in the park’s history, cast members and guests were more than thrilled to return to the “Happiest Place on Earth.” The Disneyland Resort has closed only two previous times since its opening on Jul. 17, 1955. The park closed for one day after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 and then on

Sept. 11 after the terrorist attacks. The unexpected and prolonged closure led to the Disney Company laying off over 30,000 employees. A closed crown-jeweled attraction like Disneyland affected more than just the Disney Company. The City of Anaheim suffered tremendously from an economic standpoint. Hotels, businesses, and services were boarded up and shut completely down. Even after the park has reopened, some businesses are still playing catch up and have yet open. Anaheim officials said in September 2020 that the COVID19 closures of Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center had led to a $100 million shortfall in city offers. Meanwhile, in Orlando, Florida, Disney World reopened on Jul. 11, 2020, operating above the Floridian requirements for safety protocols.

Disneyland Resort was ready to reopen in California on Jul. 17, 2020, but California ended up withholding approval for theme parks to reopen when Governor Gavin Newsom introduced the

Blueprint for a Safer Economy’s Colored Tier Program. Currently, the park is only open to California residents and at 25 percent capacity, equivalent to about 21,250 visitors in Disney-

land Park. The State set these guidelines, Disney told guests to keep their which recently changed theme park form of identification or proof of restrictions to allow out-of-state California residency on them for guests to visit the parks if they are random verifications at the ticket CONTINUED ON PAGE A15 booth.

That you can be who you are, and the right person will love you for it.” Growing up on her family’s ranch in Cholame, Twisselman was surrounded by family. And with a family like hers, it would be impossible to ever forget them or where she came from. Not that I think she would ever want to. Twisselman’s music video was filmed at her family’s ranch and the Jack Ranch Cafe on Highway 46 East. “I had all my family in it [music video] as the cast members, which made it even more fun,” said Twisselman.

SMART CASE

By CONNOR ALLEN connor@pasoroblespress.com

PASO ROBLES — The Paso Robles boys’ baseball team is off to the hottest start in the last five years and will play their biggest series of the season this week when they take on the undefeated Arroyo Grande Eagles. AG is 18-0 this season, ranked no. 1 in Division 2 of the Central Section, and the unquestioned favorites to win the Mountain League. However, the Bearcats are 8-1 in league, 14-3 overall, and ready to give the Eagles their toughest test of the season. “The pressure is on them. They are the team that is 18-0, they are the team that everybody is pick-

ing to win, they are the team that is supposed to win,” Bearcats head baseball coach Jonathan Thornhill told the Paso Robles Press. “They are the team that is number one in D2 and so on and so forth. For us, we aren’t supposed to be the team that beats them; as far as I am concerned, our guys are going to come out and play some baseball. If we play the way we are capable of playing, with a little chip on our shoulders, I think it will be a good week for us. We have got some fighters, we have some guys that have done this at a higher level on their travel and summer ball teams that they have been a part of, and they live for moments like this.” The series begins on Wednesday afternoon in Arroyo Grande and will conclude following a Saturday doubleheader in Paso Robles.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid-Central Coast Receives Matching Gift for New Clubhouse

Dan and Tessa Maas announce a matching gift of $100,000. Contributed Photo

Boys & Girls Clubs still need more donations to meet their fundraising goal STAFF REPORT

PASO ROBLES — Dan and Tessa Maas announce a matching gift of $100,000 to build the new Tom Maas Boys & Girls Clubhouse in Paso Robles. Construction of the building kicked off on Apr. 12 with a Groundbreaking Ceremony. Dan is the son of local philanthropist and businessman Tom Maas, whom the building is named for. “This project was essential to my father. He knew that the current Club always had a long waiting list for members. Dad wanted to make sure that there was space for every child that wanted to attend the Boys & Girls Clubs. He knew how important it was for children to have a safe place to go after school. Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast (BGCMCC) is in the process of raising the last $750,000 required to construct the Club. Tessa and I hope that our matching gift will encourage others to donate.” The new Club is a 3.5-million-dollar state-of-theart facility that will offer life-changing programs to local children and teens by early 2022. An additional 250+ at-risk youth will have access to a hydroponic

garden, culinary kitchen, art studio, and a STEM Lab. The new club site will primarily serve youth ages 6-12, allowing the organization to transition the existing Flamson Middle School club site to a teen center serving ages 13-18. The teen center will help approximately 100 teens daily. This concept will resolve some of the community’s most pressing issues related to the lack of adequate youth development programming. Double your donation today and be part of this legacy for Paso Robles children by donating at bit. ly/TomMaasClubHouse. To find out more about the project, contact Alanna Andruszkiewicz at (805)6232899 or Alanna.Andruszkiewicz@bgccentralcoast. org/

STAFF REPORT

GROTON, Conn. — A Sailor assigned to Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Unit (NMRTU) Groton onboard Naval Submarine Base (SUBASE) New London was honored as Service Person of the Month (SPOM) during a virtual ceremony, May 10. Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Robert Whitney of Paso Robles was recognized by the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut (the Chamber) and the Mystic Rotary Club for his efforts in supporting COVID-19 vaccine distribution in response to the pandemic. “In the midst of a global pandemic that has grounded many aspects of American life to a halt, Petty Officer Whitney has been the constant,” said Dara Wicken, a representative of the Chamber. “He led a cohesive team of 35 Sailors in the delivery of 10,467 vaccines to 5,980 active duty service members, civilian employees, and beneficiaries in the local area. During this tremendous undertaking, Petty Officer Whitney has been the embodiment of world-class care, anytime, anywhere.” Whitney thanked the Chamber and Mystic Rotary for the SPOM recognition and praised his team

for their help with vaccination efforts. “I’ve been in the community for about two years now,” said Whitney. “I started out just running the clinic, mainly leadership, but once COVID-19 struck, they needed somebody, so I put up my hand and said I’d help out making sure everybody on this base and the surrounding areas get vaccinated. I know that has helped out for the number of vaccinations gone out. I can’t take full credit for it. I have a team of 35 that have definitely put me where I am today. I’m proud of what everybody’s done and all that we’ve accomplished. I’m really glad that it’s at least helping the community to decrease the spread of COVID-19. I just wanted to thank the Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club for this opportunity.” Members of the Chamber said Whitney would receive gift cards and tickets to local attractions in the mail in addition to a plaque and certificate. The SPOM Program is organized by the Chamber and local service clubs such as the Mystic Rotary to honor local military personnel of all branches, which not only excel in their regular duties but also go above and beyond in their contributions to their community.

KRISTIN SMART CASE

48 Hours Episode Aires 'The Disappearance of Kristin Smart' New information for the case was revealed during the episode By CAMILLE DeVAUL

O

n Saturday, May 8, 48 Hours on CBS aired an episode titled "The Disappearance of Kristin Smart." This episode comes as an update to season 33, episode 16, which aired Nov. 28, 2020. Chris Lambert, the creator of 'Your Own Backyard' podcast, is featured in both episodes. He is highlighted for bringing the case forward, even given credit by San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson during the infamous Apr. 13 press conference at the Cal Poly campus. "It's hard to take too much credit, but I was one piece of the puzzle that helped to make this all come together when it did,"

said Lambert. The episode was recut with case updates and began with the arrest of Paul (44) and Ruben Flores (80). Kristin Smart's sister, Lindsey Smart-Stewart, was also interviewed, saying, "It just amazes me, the amount of evidence that's available yet nothing has happened. The day after my sister disappeared, Paul Flores had a black eye and scratches on him." New information for the case was also revealed during the episode. Jonathan Vigliotti, a CBS News Correspondent, reported what was found on Paul Flores' cell phone and computer when they were seized in February 2020. Sources told 48 Hours that investigators discovered photos and videos of Paul Flores engaged in sexual activity with at least ten different women in various states of consciousness. This confirms many people's suspicions,

including comments made by San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow made on Apr. 14. Dow stated that the District Attorney’s office is requesting information from the public. They are seeking information about this case or other potential crimes that Paul Flores may have committed. Including assaults or other acts. It was alleged that the District Attorney may know of potential victims in the San Pedro area that Paul Flores may have met at a bar or nightclub. On Apr. 19, a leaked bail report showed a statement made by SLO Deputy District Attorney (DDA) Christopher Peuvrelle. Peuvrelle said, "Dozens of women have recounted Paul Flores sexual assaults and predatory behavior that document his twenty-five years as a serial rapist." Peuvrelle's statement was then backed up when CBS News reported on Apr. 22 that Paul Flores' DNA was linked to a 2007 rape

Governor Newsom Introduces ‘California’s Comeback Plan’ On June 15, the color-coded tier system will no longer be in place STAFF REPORT

SACRAMENTO — As the State continues to open up and the COVID-19 numbers steadily decline, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), County of San Luis Obispo, and Governor Gavin Newsom realign data and tiers for reducing COVID19 in the state under the Blueprint for a Safer Economy as we head toward Jun. 15 when all mandates will be eliminated according to Newsom’s new plan. In a press conference on Tuesday, May 11, Newsom introduced “California’s Comeback Plan.” California’s Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Dr. Mark Ghaly said that the state is on track to drop the longstanding tier restrictions that have limited capacity at businesses. “On June 15, the color-coded tier system … will no longer be in place,” Ghaly said. More specifically, he added, “Certain things like capacity limits will no longer be in place in California cities.” Governor Newsom announced in April that the state would be moving away from the tier system. “We’ll be opening up on Jun.

Our commitment to ensuring our community has access to the vaccine has not changed, but now that it is available from many other providers, we can shift our focus to mobile clinics.” First-dose and second-dose appointments are available today and next week at the County’s three mass clinics through the State’s My Turn system. In addition, the County’s clinics in Arroyo Grande and Paso Robles are accepting walk-in appointments during their regular open hours. Those who receive their first dose of vaccine from the County after May 14 may get their second dose from a regular Public Health clinic or a pharmacy. “These large clinics have offered a fast, easy, and convenient way to get your vaccine at no cost for months now.

IMMIGRATION

5,000 Unaccompanied Migrant Children Could be Housed at Camp Roberts Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin addresses local impact and concerns By CAMILLE DeVAUL

PASO ROBLES — On Friday, May 7, Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin released a report on plans to house migrant children at Camp Roberts. Mayor Martin's report explained that the City of Paso Robles was notified of the potential to re-locate migrant children from California’s

southern border to shelter facilities at Camp Roberts, just north of the city. “In a teleconference meeting with federal officials recently we were told as many as 5,000 unaccompanied migrant children could be processed at Camp Roberts,” said Martin. “I expressed concerns about the impacts on local traffic, medical services, educational services and housing. I was told that, if children were transported to Camp Roberts, they would not arrive all at one time, but in groups of a few hundred. I was also assured medical and educational services would be handled on-base and

would not impact local agencies.” Mayor Martin also expressed concerns about the needs of staff coming from out of the area and informed officials of the already tight housing market and the city’s reliance on local hotels for the tourism trade. “I explained the housing situation clearly,” said Martin. “I insisted that, unlike similar operations in urban areas, this could have significant impacts on our community. I was assured I would be informed on plans as they develop.” Martin said he had requested more information and assistance from state and federal represen-

tatives, “I have reached out to Congressman Salud Carbajal, State Senator John Laird and State Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham for assistance minimizing impacts of this operation, should it be executed, and keeping the public informed.” For the past week, residents in San Luis Obispo County have grown concerned over allegations that 20,000 migrant children are coming to Camp Roberts. District 5 Supervisor, Debbie Arnold, asked County Administrative Officer (CAO), Wade Horton, for an update on the migrant children coming to Camp Roberts.

According to Horton, as of Monday, May 10, there is still only potential for the migrant children to be held at Camp Roberts and only a maximum of 5,000 children. We also spoke with Camp Roberts Public Information Officer Luitenent Colonol Jonathan Shiroma. Their office has been instructed to direct anyone with questions about the migrant children to contact the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS). We have made several phone calls to the HSS and could not reach a real person to speak with. We have contacted them

CALIFORNIA ROARS BACKS

Governor Newsom $12 Billion Homelessness Crisis Package Governor’s plan said to end family homelessness within five years STAFF REPORT

SACRAMENTO — On Tuesday, May 11, Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled the second challenge in his $100 billion California Comeback Plan to confront California’s homelessness crisis. Governor Newsom’s $12 billion plan to tackle the issue of homelessness will be the largest investment of its kind in California history. This investment will provide 65,000 people with housing placements, more than 300,000 people with housing stability, and create 46,000 new housing units. To build on the success of Homekey – a program that provided safe shelter from COVID-19 to 36,000 Californians and created 6,000 affordable housing units, Governor Newsom’s new plan includes a massive expansion of Homekey and other similar strategies to get housing up and running

quickly by investing $8.75 billion to unlock at least 46,000 new homeless housing units and affordable apartments. The plan focuses on those with the most acute needs, with at least 28,000 new beds and housing placements for clients with behavioral health needs and seniors at the highest risk of homelessness. Newsom Administration’s plan also comes with greater accountability and transparency measures to ensure investments are put toward effective solutions and money is well-spent. Under the California Comeback Plan, the state seeks to functionally end family homelessness within five years through a new $3.5 billion investment in homelessness prevention, rental support, and new housing opportunities for people at risk of homelessness. To achieve this, the Newsom Administration is investing $1.85 billion in new housing for homeless families and $1.6 billion in rental support and homelessness prevention for families. “Within a year, Homekey did more to address the homelessness and affordable housing crisis than anything that’s been done in decades and became a

national model. Now is the time to double down on these successful efforts,” said Governor Newsom. “The California Comeback Plan invests a historic $12 billion to expand these successful programs and seeks to end family homelessness within five years. That’s the idea behind the Comeback Plan’s homelessness investments – more, faster and with accountability and efficiency stitched into the fabric of these new investments.” The California Comeback Plan includes almost $50 million in targeted programs and grants to local governments to move people out of unsafe, unhealthy encampments and into safer, more stable housing. Governor Newsom’s plan aims to provide stable housing for thousands of vulnerable aged youth experiencing homelessness or at-risk of homelessness by targeting resources through Homekey and supporting various youth-focused grant programs. In addition, the plan calls for stricter enforcement measures of state housing law and investments into proven strategies, ensuring local governments are meeting targets to reduce

the amount of homelessness. The Governor is proposing an additional $1.5 billion investment to clean public spaces near highways and transform public spaces through arts and cultural projects. The initiative is expected to create an estimated 15,000 jobs, including for people experiencing or exiting homelessness, at-risk youth, veterans, and formerly incarcerated individuals. The California Comeback Plan outlines comprehensive strategies and major investments to address five of the state’s most stubborn challenges. The Governor unveiled on Tuesday that this will be the first challenge his plan will tackle, immediate relief for Californians recovering from the pandemic, including the largest state tax rebate in American history and expanded rent relief and utility assistance. The Governor has also announced a $5.1 billion package supporting the state’s drought response and water infrastructure, improving the state’s resilience to climate change impacts. Under Governor Newsom’s $100 billion plan, California will come roaring back from this pandemic.

ARREST

Police Activity Near Atascadero Junior High School STAFF REPORT

ATASCADERO — On Monday, May 10, at approximately 1:50 p.m., officers of the Atascadero Police Department were dispatched to a report of a man with a rifle entering the creek behind the Atascadero Junior High School. Officers arrived in the area and learned the suspect had approached a resident on Capistrano Avenue while holding what appeared to be a rifle. The suspect then fled into the creek bed. The Atascadero Junior High School and Atascadero Unified District Office were placed on lockdown due to their proximity to the incident. Officers established a perimeter and began a search for the suspect in the creek. Officers ultimately contacted Arthur Castellanos who admitted to having a BB gun rifle. The BB gun was located at the scene. While this was occurring another person called APD stating their children, who lived in the same area, had a male brandish a rifle at them earlier while they were playing outside. Officers conducted an investigation and Castellanos was positively identified as the suspect in the brandishing incident. Castellanos was placed under arrest and booked at San Luis Obispo County Jail for Brandishing a Firearm, Probation Violation and a warrant.

T

he “Light is Still On” at the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation as we continue the important work of the LIGHTHOUSE Atascadero Programs of Awareness, Prevention, Intervention, and Education, providing direct support to students and families/caregivers to reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. National Prevention Week is May 9 through 15. Each year around this observance, communities all over the country come together to raise awareness about the importance of substance abuse use prevention and positive mental health. This week, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSHA), we are launching our Talk, They Hear You Campaign. Since the beginning of our LIGHTHOUSE programs in 2012, the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation has been providing resources to empower parents/ caregivers to talk with their children and youth to prevent underage drinking and substance use; information can be found on our website at lighthouseatascadero.org. Parents and caregivers play a key role in prevention. Although it may not seem like it, when parents and caregivers talk about underage drinking and substance use, their children will hear them. Research suggests that the chances children will try alcohol or other drugs increases as they get older. In the 2019-2020 Calif. Healthy Kids Survey, over 25 percent of the Atascadero Unified School District’s eleventh graders self-reported they currently use alcohol and other drugs. It is our goal, through the Talk, They Hear You Campaign is to increase parents’ and caregiver’s awareness of the prevalence and risk of underage drinking and substance use. Equip the kids with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to prevent underage

drinking and substance use; and increase their actions to prevent underage drinking and substance use. Research suggests the one most important factor in healthy child development is a strong, open relationship with parents. It is important to talk to your children about alcohol and other drug use before they are exposed to them. Five important conversation goals are: 1. Show you disapprove of underage drinking and other drug misuse. 2. Show you care about your child’s health, wellness, and success. 3. Show you are a good source of information about alcohol and other drugs. 4. Show you are paying attention, and you will discourage risky behaviors. 5. Build your child’s skills and strategies for avoiding drinking and drug use. Information (in English and Spanish) on how to reach these goals and have these important conversations can be found on our website, atascaderogreyhoundfoundation.org, under the Talk, They Hear You tab. Parents and Caregivers are an essential part of the work in the prevention of underage drinking and substance use through the Talk, They Hear You Campaign; we will support you in this important role.

home. Her children and numerous grand and great-grandkids were present in her last days. Midge was born November 7, 1927, in Wheeling, West Virginia, the youngest of 9 children. She moved to Paso Robles, Ca, in 1948 and married Don Billings in 1949. They lived in Arcata, Ca. 1949-1963, where they had four children, John, Bob, Cherie, and Kathy. In 1963 they moved to Fremont, where all kids graduated from Washington High School. In 1970, Midge started working as the bookkeeper in the family business, Billings Automotive Machine Shop.

She worked there with Don and Cherie until they all retired in 1994. Don and Midge were very active in the Niles-Fremont Rotary Club and continued to be involved with Rotary clubs nationwide for years after retiring. They loved to travel North America in their motor home, often with relatives, friends, and various Rotary groups. They moved to Surprise, AZ in 1994 and were there until Don’s passing in 2016. Midge then returned to live in Niles with Kathy, who continues to teach at Centerville Junior High. In Midge’s later years, she would often spend a week for doctor’s visits with

Cherie and Melinda in Walnut Creek. Mom was thoroughly committed to her family and very active in supporting her children in school and sports. Mom made our home a gathering place for friends and family her whole life. She was opinionated and yet diplomatic, so that all felt welcome. Hosting social unique themed gatherings was a specialty. And if there was even a chance of being in costume, she was all in. At the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta on Halloween night, she made sure she and Dad would stand out, as they were the only ones out of

1000 attendees in costume. For decades, she was an enthusiastic fan of the A’s, Giants, D-Backs, and Warriors. And she could always be counted on to express her displeasure with Tom Brady. Midge is survived by John & Yan Billings, Bob & Sue Billings, Cherie & Melinda Billings/ Black, and Kathy Fields. She had five grandkids, Derek Billings, Allison Lambert (Billings) and Megan Wong (Fields), Jorie Fields-Hoyt & Keri Stinson (Fields). She also had eight great-grandkids. Mom and Dad will be interred at Paso Robles Cemetery after a family gathering on May 15.

Immigration Crisis Massive Influx Will Cripple Central Coast Recovery Efforts

A month ago, it was anticipated that there would only be potentially 1,500 children housed at Camp Roberts. However, last week, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors were notified to expect the arrival of 5,000 children. There are rumors that the number could be considerably AARON BERGH higher.

For

P

perspective, Paso Robles only has about 1,500 hotel rooms. Beds are an incredibly scarce resource for our tourism industry. Although it’s not peak tourism season yet, the total hotel occupancy is already surpassing 90 percent on the weekends. Before the pandemic, 60 percent of my customers were tourists. That number dropped to 25 percent when COVID occupancy restrictions were imposed on distilleries, wineries, breweries, and restaurants. After a long 15 months of lockdowns, the business community is starting to feel momentum towards a return to normal. If a large portion of hotel beds are occupied by government workers, our region will not have enough capacity to accommodate the tourists that businesses are relying on to make a full comeback. Because hotel guests who stay longer than 30 days consecutively are exempt from the 13.5 percent Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT), long-term stays by government workers will result

in significant revenue loss for our community. Most of the TOT revenue is allocated to the City of Paso Robles, which relies on the proceeds to fund essential public services like the police and fire departments. About a quarter of TOT revenue is allocated to the Travel Paso Robles Alliance and Visit SloCal travel bureaus that promote our city and county to attract more awareness and tourism. Assuming an average nightly hotel room rate of $150, the City of Paso Robles and travel bureaus will lose out on collecting $20 per occupied room each and every day the federal program is operating. On the low end of the anticipated need, if 600 rooms are occupied by government workers for one year, the city’s revenues would dramatically fall by over $4.3 million - a massive hit to the city’s projected $5.6 million TOT budget for 2021 identified prior to the announcement of the federal program. As noted, the need for rooms could be

more than triple that level and, if so, would land a devastating blow to the city’s annual budget. Due to economic strains caused by COVID lockdowns, the city of Paso Robles found itself in a budgetary lurch that resulted in increasing the sales tax rate a full percentage point. The city cannot afford to undergo further financial burden as it struggles to find its post-pandemic footing. Beyond hotel overcrowding, the convergence of migrants and support staff in Paso Robles could lead to other adverse effects. There will be increased traffic on roads and demand for emergency services that locals rely on. In the face of an impending drought, higher water consumption by Camp Roberts will further strain our water supply and result in increased withdrawals from the severely overdrawn Lake Nacimiento. As a business owner, I’m not interested in inserting myself into the divisive debate on

'Moms for Liberty' Start First California Chapter in San Luis Obispo County

CONNIE PILLSBURY COMMENTARY

Yes, Parents Can Have a Say

T

he battle for who controls our children’s education has heated up to the level of a raucous bullfight all across America. Fueling the fire is the juxtaposition of opposing cultural philosophies, all wishing to impose their beliefs on the minds of our youth. In the 20th century, there was a general consensus of cultural values based on the Judeo-Christian ethic, the importance of the family unit, a love of country, honesty,

integrity, and hard work. Education as a means of upward mobility and opportunity was a shared goal as beloved as baseball. School was the key, and public school was the vehicle. Americans, in general, trusted the school boards and state departments of education to design a curriculum, provide textbooks and teachers that would build educated, capable contributing citizens for the future. As time went along, these bureaucracies, especially at the state level in California, became top-heavy with the trust and power given to them carte blanche by the parents. This resulted in parents gradually losing influence on the content, values, and viewpoints being taught to their children. Teachers unions, academia, and special interest groups corralled control of the educational system at the state level through political influence of the languid one-party government with only a few obser-

vant parents taking notice and exiting the system. Until Covid-19, the educational wake-up call. What was already a beginning resistance to the imbalance of power perceived by the parents became a torrent, with groups, movements, recall petitions of governors, and school boards reflecting the discontent. There is the 51,000member Informed Parents of California, whose motto is “We will stop at nothing to protect our kids.” The group went to Sacramento and succeeded in the deletion of four highly offensive sex education books for K-12 last March. facebook.com/groups/ InformedParentsCalifornia Another example is EdChoice, which has been promoting school choice since founder, the late Milton Friedman, Nobel-winning economist, stated, “Instead of requiring that tax dollars and students follow a single path to public schools, funds

earmarked for education and generated by taxes should be directed by parents to the school of their choice.” This has become known as the ‘voucher’ system and is now being implemented in seven states with ‘education savings accounts.” The impetus for these programs has been accelerated by the interest in alternative forms of learning sought during the pandemic, as well as by teacher-union self-serving refusal to return to the classroom. Locally, a group of moms have joined “Moms for Liberty,” launched in January 2021 by two moms, both school board members, in Florida. This is a non-profit, non-partisan group promoting a return of power to the parents and the freedom to choose in what manner their children will be educated. There are more than twenty new chapters of “Moms for Liberty” across the country, with the first California

immigration policy. Like any other compassionate member of society, my heart breaks for the children that have walked thousands of miles, enduring abuse from adverse weather and human smugglers along the way, by no fault of their own. As fellow humans, I want to see our generous country help them in some way – it’s the American thing to do. It’s important to make management decisions that do not further harm reeling small businesses that collectively have been severely stressed like no other time in contemporary history. There are other regions less dependent upon the tourism industry for their survival that have adequate housing and hotel capacities to accommodate such programs.

chapter right here in San Luis Obispo County. The group already has members from all areas in the county. Under the leadership of Jennifer Grinager of Templeton and a board of directors, their local short-term goal is “Full in-person school in the fall with no masks.” Grinager says, “There is no reason to mask children. They are not carriers, they rarely transmit the virus, and children have a 99.94 percent recovery rate. Children need to breathe.” The long term goals of this dedicated group are consistent with parent groups across the country who are committed to strengthening the role of the parent in choosing what system of education works for their child, whether it be a charter school, pod school, homeschool, and in promoting the parents’ right of being solely responsible for medical decisions for their child, including vaccinations, masks and in reforming existing

public education to be more responsive to the input from parents at a local level. San Luis Obispo County parents interested in Moms for Liberty can request to join the private Facebook group by going to Moms for Liberty - San Luis Obispo County. With a monthly meeting and information sharing, the group is looking for more interested local moms to start sub-committees, attend school board meetings, meet with board members and work toward getting the word out that parents truly can have a say and a choice in how their children are educated.

again. Remind me, who works for whom? On a refreshingly positive note, the Board got the message that this County does not want vaccine passports. Debbie Arnold made a motion that the following be placed on the Consent Agenda for the May 18 meeting: (1) The Board write a letter of support for Kiley’s Bill AB 327 (2) Amendment to add to the Board’s Legislative Platform their opposition to requiring vaccine verification in order to get goods and services. The motion was seconded by John Peschong and passed 3-2 with the support of Lynn Compton. Bruce Gibson and Dawn Ortiz-Legg. The SARS-COV-2 virus has rattled us all, but we must not barter our liberties to assuage our fears. Such shortsighted actions made in haste are far harder to unravel than if their conse-

quences were initially weighed rationally and with respect to legal and historical precedence in addition to common decency and fairness. Requiring citizens to display their private medical records to merit access to goods and services will result in a two-tiered social system. A community divided into those who relinquish their right to privacy and religious and bodily autonomy for the privilege of access and those that hold liberty foremost and are consequently denied access. A society of haves and have-nots, or, more specifically, those who have liberty without access and those who have access without liberty. This outcome would be an inexcusable atrocity we must continue to be intentional to avoid. Sara Semmes Atascadero

Yes, it’s a bullfight, and it will be an uphill battle, but Moms for Liberty are willing to stay in the arena to get the power back where it belongs – in the hands of the parents.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR VACCINE PASSPORTS? Dear Editor, Anyone listening to the Apr. 20 Board of Supervisors meeting would have heard the members state their intention to ask Dr. Penny Bornstein about the use of vaccine passports in our County during the May 4 meeting. And during the meeting, Borenstein was indeed asked about vaccine passports under the COVID Update agenda item. On May 4 there were well over a hundred pre-recorded verbal public comments voicing concern over vaccine passports. In the midst of playing the comments on the agenda item #16, the COVID Update, the Board interrupted the play of messages in order to move to suspend the right of the remaining messages to be heard. Supervisors Dawn Ortiz-Legg, Bruce Gibson, and

John Peschong voted not to hear the remaining messages in order to “save time.” The following day the SLO Tribune hostility mislabeled constituents’ comments as “spam.” Shame on them for demeaning callers with cultural slurs such as “anti-vaxxers” or “far-right conservatives.” To belittle citizen involvement in the political system shows a crude lack of objectivity that the Tribune professes to attain. If the Tribune truly had an interest in knowing what spurred people to call in, then perhaps it should have listened to the calls instead of dismissing them. Each caller articulated their motivation in calling: they were concerned with the privacy of the medical information; they felt vaccine passports would be in violation of international, federal, and state laws; they feared

vaccine passports would lead to discrimination and segregation. Some callers stated that they were Veterans who felt vaccine passports were a threat to the freedom they had fought to protect. Some callers were in favor of the COVID Vaccines and opposed to the possibility of having to show proof of them to access public accommodations. These people live in our County. They are our neighbors. They vote. They have just as much right to voice their concerns and be heard in the process as those who politically align with the Tribune. Their editorial utilized name-calling over journalism, further perpetuating the social divide. So much for inclusion and calls for equity. The editorial insinuated people called from out of state. Such suspicions would have been easy enough to verify as each caller spoke and spelled

their name. Once again, that would have been the actions of a responsible journalist. San Luis Obispo County’s Board of Supervisors expressed outright shock at the public outcry from constituents who called to voice their concern about vaccine verification systems. Dawn Ortiz-Legg later referenced the COVID Update public comments by stating, “We talked for hours about something that didn’t matter.” Obviously, it doesn’t matter to Dawn OrtizLegg, but she needs to recognize that it does matter to her voters. Notably, more public comments were left on the COVID Update than on any other agenda items. My own representative, Bruce Gibson, voted against addressing the topic in the next meeting as it would likely create the potential for a high volume of public comment to endure

M

other’s Day was a lovely day for me. We purchased a Lasagna dinner from the Atascadero Printery Foundation’s fundraiser and shared it with our Paso Robles family, our son Dave, his wife Shannon, and their daughter, Maddie, who was visiting from the Bay area. Later we visited Lowe’s and came home with tomato plants. I think every one must be planting big tomatoes this year because there weren’t many of those left, but lots of cherry tomato varieties left on the racks. We like those Beefsteak-size tomatoes where one slice covers a whole sandwich! We’re chanting, “grow tomatoes, grow!” A large majority of La Cuesta Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) membership participated in the HeArt-felt project for Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA).

CASA advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the court system. The organization recruits, trains, and supervises volunteers who advocate for this vulnerable population with the goal of ensuring that each and every child grows up in a safe, nurturing, and permanent home. District VII Director Robin Eiland, La Cuesta Chapter Regent Leslie Lechner, and La Cuesta chapter members Carrie Lovell and Barbra Wright were honored to deliver the HeArt bags to a representative from the CASA office in San Luis Obispo. CASA Executive Director, Teresa Tardiff, explained that the program’s current 130 kids were overjoyed to receive the unexpected art kits. La Cuesta Chapter members organized and assembled 61 HeArt kits. The special kits each had age-appropriate drawing pads, construction paper, water color paint sets, stencils, rulers, scissors, paint brushes, chalk, play-doh, crayons, sharpeners, glue sticks, stickers, and extras. La Cuesta Chapter, NSDAR is an active chapter honoring ancestors who fought for their independence. The chapter celebrated 70 years of service in SLO County

on January 19, 2021. The chapter promotes historic preservation, education, and patriotism, through volunteer service in local communities. NSDAR is a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s service organization with more than one million members who have joined the organization since its founding in 1890. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership. For more information, visit DAR.org. Next, put this recipe under “summer” in your recipe file. It makes a delicious cold soup, and it’s made with those tomatoes you’re planting now.

Bloody Mary Gazpacho Ingredients: • 3 lbs vine-ripened tomatoes, quartered • ¾ cup tomato juice • 2 tsp drained bottled horseradish • ½ tsp sugar • 1 cup finely chopped peeled seeded cucumber • ½ cup finely chopped sweet onion • ½ cup finely chopped yellow bell

• • • •

pepper ½ cup finely chopped celery 2 tbsp vodka (optional) ¼ tsp Tabasco, or to taste 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Directions: Blend first four ingredients in blender until smooth. Strain through a sieve into a bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients and enough water to thin soup to desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Chill at least 1 hour until cold. Make 1 day ahead. Easily serves 6. Cheers!

Keep blowing those bubbles away until your mind is still with no thought. Feel the peace of the absence of thought wash over and through you. Consider every cell in your body illuminated by divine healing light. Your revolution is progressing. The more you can blow those thought bubbles of false beliefs away, the freer you become. Seeing your own life transformed, you learn that you can also affect change in the collective consciousness. How will you contribute to the revolution in our collective consciousness? And so it is.

SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Monday, May 10, a San Luis Obispo Police Department (SLOPD) officer was killed in the line of duty as a result of a shooting that occurred while officers were serving a search warrant at an apartment on Camellia Court. A press conference was held on Tuesday, May 11, to provide details on the incident. Derek Johnson, San Luis Obispo City Manager, started the conference by saying, “I have the privilege of serving as the city manager for this amazing community. Your City Council and I every single day work along the side of 500 public servants who come to work to make this community better; they have served us tirelessly during the last year and supported our community every day, and we continue to be in awe of their services.” San Luis Obispo Police Detective Luca Benedetti, a 12-year veteran of law enforcement, was shot and killed Monday. Detective Steve Orozco was injured and transported to Sierra Vista Hospital, where he was treated and released Monday evening. He is expected to make a full recovery. “Speaking directly to Detective Benedetti’s family, please know how grateful the City Council and I are, and every single member of the community are for the service to keep the community safe. We are heartbroken alongside you; know that the entire city family will walk the path of grief with you and will always remember Luca’s sacrifice,” Johnson shared as he held back tears. “To the community, I ask for you to join me in offering your support to members of our police department during this difficult time. As an organization and as a community, we are here for them just as they are here for us every day 24-7,” Johson said while trying to contain his emotions.

Johnson then introduced incoming Police Chief Rick Scott, whose first day is this Thursday; however, due to the shooting, came in yesterday to meet with members of the department and help them at the start of what will be an incredibly difficult journey. “This is not how a Chief wants to begin his tenor in service, but I can say with absolute certainty that we are fortunate to have him at the helm during this time,” Johnson said. “I first want to start by speaking directly to our police officers and our men and women. Let me be the first... to formally offer my sincere condolences. We have some fantastic men and women at the San Luis Police Department, and this is an unthinkable tragedy. Each of you come to work knowing any day, something like this could happen. Even still, these incredible men and women brave these odds in service to our community and to each and every one of you. Yesterday was an absolute tragedy; an officer died serving our community. What I saw on my first day on the job was how dedicated each of our officers are and our police family to one another, and they held each other up. Last night our police family wrapped our arms around one another as the words of the officers who were injured in the firefight. I saw expressions of love and support for one another and the amazing strength displayed through this grief. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Detectives Benedetti and Orozco... and I would also like to extend my sympathy to the entire community of San Luis Obispo,” Police Chief Scott said in his first public comment. At approximately 5 p.m. on Monday, six SLOPD officers served the search warrant for possible stolen property related to a series of late-night commercial burglaries that have taken place over the past week. Detective Benedetti, alongside Detective Orozco, and four other officers, served the warrant at an apartment on Camellia Court, off Margarita Avenue near South Higuera Street. As the officers approached the apartment, they provided “knock and notice,” identifying

themselves as law enforcement as required by California Penal Code 844. After an extended period of time and having received no response, they forced open the front door where the suspect was lying in wait and began to fire shots at the officers from inside the apartment. Officers then returned fire and retreated; however, officers Benedetti and Orozco were shot during the exchange of gunfire. The suspected shooter was identified as Edward Zamora Giron (37), who was later found deceased inside the apartment with an apparent self-inflicted, fatal gunshot wound and other injuries consistent with being struck by the officer’s return fire. The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office, in coordination with the District Attorney’s Office, will be conducting the investigation into this incident. “We appreciate their assistance through this difficult time,” said Acting Chief Brian Amoroso. “Having an outside agency conduct the investigation is a standard practice for officer-involved shootings, and we are cooperating fully with their investigation,” he added. Detective Benedetti, 37, is survived by his wife, Grace, and two young daughters. He joined the San Luis Obispo Police Department in 2012 and before that served for four years with the Atascadero Police Department. “I had the distinct pleasure of working with Luca over the past nine years,” Amoroso said. “He was a dedicated officer, a talented detective, a proud member of the San Luis Obispo Regional SWAT Team, and most importantly, a loving husband and father.” “The entire SLOPD is grateful for the outpouring of

support we have received from the community,” Amoroso said. “We are also grateful for the continued support from our Central Coast law enforcement partners and beyond. The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office, along with allied law enforcement agencies in the county, will respond to calls for service in the City of San Luis Obispo during the coming days while members of the SLOPD grieve and work through this tragedy,” he added. The San Luis Obispo Police Department Police Officer Association and the San Luis Obispo Regional SWAT team set up a GoFundMe page for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to the Benedetti family going forward in their time of need. All generously donated funds will go directly to Luca’s family as they navigate this very difficult time. Memorial services for Detective Benedetti have yet to be announced. On Friday, May 14, a Candlelight Vigil is planned at Mission Plaza in San Luis Obispo at 7:30 p.m., where various speakers will lead a prayer and honor Detective Benedetti, his family, and the San Luis Obispo Police Department.

REMEMBRANCE

Governor Newsom San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Statement on Death of Dow Remembers Detective Luca Benedetti San Luis Obispo Police Detective STAFF REPORT

SACRAMENTO — Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement regarding the death of San Luis Obispo Police Department Detective Lucas “Luca” Benedetti. “Jennifer and I extend our heartfelt sympathies to the family, friends, and colleagues of Detective Benedetti, who made the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty. His tragic death underscores the dangers that are routinely faced by those who courageously risk their lives to protect communities throughout California, and we will never forget his sacrifice.” On May 10, Detective Benedetti was fatally shot while San Luis Obispo Police Department officers were serving a search warrant at a residence in the City of San Luis Obispo. Detective Benedetti, 37, was a 12-year veteran of law enforcement. He joined the San Luis Obispo Police Department in 2012, after having served for four years with the Atascadero Police Department. He is survived by his wife, Grace, and two young daughters. In honor of Detective Benedetti, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.

“I first met Luca Benedetti when he was a rookie trainee with Atascadero Police Department in 2008 or 2009, and I went for several ‘ride-a-longs with him and his field training officer. I was impressed then with how calm, professional, and caring he was in performing his duties as a police officer. I was not surprised when several years later, in November 2012, to hear of him helping a woman in labor deliver her baby in the Atascadero Police Department parking lot. I have always thought of Luca as one of the ‘best of the best in law enforcement because of his calm demeanor, very professional work product, his deep care for the safety of our community, and his authentic friendship. He was passionate about protecting the community from drunk drivers, and to that end, he received numerous awards from Mothers Against Drunk Driving over the years due to his excellence in investigating these difficult cases. I can say with confidence that we are a safer community today because of the excellent work of Detective Luca Benedetti, and I am very proud to say that we were friends. This has been a very sad week for our law enforcement community. We buried retired Arroyo Grande Police Chief Beau Pryor (50) on Thursday, and we have lost another local hero in Detective Luca Benedetti just four short days later. None of us knows the day or hour when we will leave this earth… so we must make every day count and tell our loved ones how much we care for them. Our community, I hope, will continue to show the wonderful support for our law enforcement officers who every day step into the line of danger in order to protect all of us. Detective Benedetti’s death – while he was protecting our community from criminals – is an example of true sacrificial love for our community. I pray for Mrs. Benedetti and their children for God’s grace and peace to shelter them at this devastating time and over the years to come. It is written, “there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Detective Benedetti demonstrated this for his fellow peacemakers and for the residents of our community. God bless Detective Luca Benedetti and his dear family, loved ones, and fellow law enforcement officers.”

“The Atascadero Police Department family would like to send our condolences and support to the Benedetti family and the San Luis Obispo Police Department. We feel honored to have had the privilege to work with Luca and join you in your sorrow. Godspeed, Detective Benedetti.”

to speak to us in Spanish although they speak fluent English. I have called that to order several times. The reason is, we have a duty under the California Consitution, as officials in this state, to promote and enhance the use of English as the common language, and I happen to take duties very seriously. However, this has created a fair amount of strife in meetings, and I have not had the support of the board members yet. So until further notice, anyone in the public who wishes to address the Board can address us in any language they wish to, and if we can translate it, we will. If they wish to translate it themselves, they can, and that will be the end of this subject until further notice.” Public comment consisted of eight comments, all mainly written to the Board. The majority of the comments asked the District to start preparing for full in-person learning, with pre-covid regulations, for the next school year. There were other calls concerned about the closure of the Georgia Brown Elementary School campus. The Board then held their second public hearing on the “Potential Composition of Trustee-Area Election System Commencing with the 2022 Governing Board Election Action.” From the agenda item summary: “The District’s Board of Trustees is currently elected under an “at-large” election system, where trustees are elected by voters of the entire District. Seven trustees are elected in even-numbered years and serve staggered four-year terms. On Feb. 26, 2019, the Board adopted Resolution No. 19-15, a Resolution Approving Authorization to Initiate a Transition to a By-Trustee Area Election System Commencing with the 2022 Governing Board Election. Because this resolution proposed the change would be based on 2020 census data, which has been delayed due to the COVID pandemic, on Apr. 27, the Board adopted Resolution 21-22 to reaffirm the decision, but to use 2010 census data to draw the initial maps. Those maps would be reviewed and possibly revised prior to the 2022 election once the 2020 census data is released. The District’s demographers, Cooperative Strategies, LLC, presented information on the process and criteria for drawing the trustee-area boundary maps during Apr. 27, 2021, Board meeting. Now that the Board and community have received the informative presentation, the Board will hold its second statutorily required hearing to receive input from the community on the trustee-area map creation process, pursuant to Elections Code section 10010(a) (1).” The first public hearing for the potential change to the election system was held at the last regular meeting on Apr. 27. There were no comments from the public during that meeting, and Board member Chris Bausch raised concerns over how the hearing was advertised to the public. Brad Powlowski informed the Board how the second hearing was advertised: “The Public Hearing Notice has been posted on the District’s

website (homepage), Facebook, School Sites, District Office Bulletin Board, newspaper ad (The San Luis Obispo Tribune), and PR Daily News online. A Press Release was also distributed to over a dozen local media outlets.” There were still no comments from the public for the public hearing. Jen Gaviola and Powlowski provided a presentation for a staffing plan for learning loss mitigation and current funding related to COVID relief. The mitigation plan is for the 20212022 and 2022-2023 school year for in-person instruction. The Board unanimously approved the motion. Some of the new positions will include elementary math intervention, behavior paraeducators, school psychologist, intervention teacher PRHS-credit recovery, and an LVN. Sources for the funding will come from CARES and AB 86 (Expanded Learning Opportunity and In-Person Instructional Grant). The AB 86 grant is a one-time funding grant of $6,700,000 with $2,000,000 going towards in-person instruction costs. The other $4,700,000 belongs to the Expanded Learning Opportunity Grant. This grant will include extending instructional learning time beyond requirements and pupil supports such as mental health services, meal programs, and before and after school programs, and more. Superintendent Curt Dubost provided an update on legislation relating to grading and retention during COVID. The update says the following in the information item summary: “Two bills making their way through the legislative process would deal with parent requests to keep their child retained at their 2020–21 grade level for the 2021–22 school year. Assembly Bill (AB) 104 would require local educational agencies (LEAs) to implement a temporary interim retention policy by Jun. 1, including an application that allows parents to request their child be retained for the 2021–22 school year. Senate Bill (SB) 545 is less prescriptive than AB 104 in that it does not establish a new process for student retention. SB 545 is looking for LEAs to leverage the $4.6 billion in the Expanded Learning Opportunities Grants to support student retention policies. We will continue to inform the Board and parents of any new developments.” The entire meeting can be viewed at youtube.com/channel/UCTG5DZtaQn-Mo3IGcohE2Mw. The next regular meeting is scheduled for May 25, with open session beginning at 6 p.m.

One of Twisselman’s biggest inspirations in life was her mother, Junis Twisselman. “She had a beautiful voice like Patsy Cline, and I always would practice outside with my fake microphone, pretending I was performing like she was. She inspired me to have the same career,” said Twisselman of her mother. She continued, “My mom shined on-stage. It was a happy escape for her. She always told me that if this is what I wanted to do, that I had to enjoy myself and not try to be something I’m not.” Twisselman made the move out to Nashville almost four years ago after she met Danny Nozell, Dolly Parton’s manager. Nozell told Twisselman that Nashville was where she needed to be. Under his guidance, Twisselman spent the next year and a half honing her skills in songwriting by recording and demoing her music. Her hard work paid off when she signed her first publishing deal with Vintern Songs and eOne Music Publishing. Twisselman said she wrote more music in one month in Nashville than she ever did one year in California, saying the Country Music Capitol was inspiring for her. Now, Twisselman is working with Grammy Award-Winning producer Aaron Pearce and Copperline Music Group on releasing her debut single “Two Hands.” Twisselman’s “Two Hands” single was written by a publishing friend, and she felt the lyrics fit her personality. The single was originally planned to be released in 2020. But the 2020 setbacks are not stopping Twisselman now, “It’s exciting to get music back out there again. I’m also looking forward to the live shows. We are hoping to get some festivals going by the fall of this year. That’s what I’m looking forward to the most.” She continued, “All the hometown has been supportive. It’s a hard business that takes a long time, so when it finally comes together, it’s pretty exciting.” Fans of Twisselman’s can look forward to more music being released later in the year.

fully vaccinated. Disneyland California has said they will not be allowing out of State visitors as of yet and have not confirmed any requirements regarding vaccinations to enter any of their theme park resorts. On Mar. 9, Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced Disneyland Resorts’ reopening date, and the company stated they recalled 10,000 furloughed employees. Needless to say, the reopening of Disneyland Resort is bringing back more than magic. The resort is bringing back jobs and hopefully fueling an economic recovery for many. My family happened to be one of the lucky guests to enter the Disneyland gates on opening day, and what a historic day it was! Here is what that first day was like and what you can expect if you decide to have a magical day of your own:

BASEBALL CONTINUED FROM A1

The strength of the Bearcat baseball team this season is unquestionably their starting pitching and the depth of their rotation. As a team, Paso Robles has an earned run average of 2.08 through 17 games. However, more than half of the 23 players on the team can pitch and are led by their ace Carson Turnquist. In six appearances this season, Turnquist has a sub-one ERA at .91 with a 5-0 record. “The bread and butter for us is this pitching staff. Having an ERA of 2.08 through 17 games is pretty impressive. We’ve got some

Opening Day:

One guest I spoke to said she lined up outside the park at 3:30 a.m. on that Friday, Apr. 30 morning. Opening day was sold out and fully booked for both parks. Despite the line in the morning looking enormous, the process went very smoothly and quicker than imagined. While guests lined up at the ticket booths, some Disney officials walked around asking guests if they were excited for opening day. After the crowd counted down together, guests were let into the park about an hour early. Cast members lined Main Street, greeting and waving guests into the magic kingdom. Former CEO of the Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, and present Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Product Josh D’Amaro was even present.

guys. Carson Turnquist, Tanner O’Farrell, Dylan Allison. Jakob Wright [Cal Poly commit] is coming back healthy and is ready to roll. Austin Taylor has been a surprise guy for us that has really stepped up as a junior.” Wright being healthy and available could be crucial in the series this weekend and prove to be the difference in close games down the stretch. While the Bearcats’ defense and pitching have been excellent, their offense hasn’t been far behind. To this point in the year, Paso Robles

Happy tears were everywhere, coming from cast members excited to be back to work and guests who were grateful to be “home.”

Know Before You Go:

Should you decide to venture into the “Happiest Place on Earth” soon, know, that patience is key. Employees and the Resort are also dealing with ever-changing COVID restrictions and guidelines. Trial and error are evident, so keep this in mind and be kind. While the resort is getting back into the swing of things, park hours have been reduced. The park first opened from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. but starting May 14, the park will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Disneyland Resort and California Adventure are currently using a reservation system, meaning you first need to purchase a ticket then make a reservation for the day(s) you want to visit the parks. This ensures the park does not go over its visitor capacity. You need to do a few things prior to entering the”Disney Bubble,” which includes everything from both parks to Downtown Disney and the Disneyland Resort Hotel. Health workers from Hoag Health Network quickly scan guests’ foreheads with a non-contact forehead thermometer. Guests are then walked through two security checks, one including walking through an area with specially trained dogs. Head to the resort’s website and read up on the latest rules and COVID safety protocols by visiting disneyland.disney. go.com Like everything else in the world of COVID, rules are subject to change. While Disneyland does not have all its magic back yet, many are grateful that they have finally opened up the gates.

has scored 161 runs, including 49 in three games last week, and has a positive point differential of 89 runs. In fact, with only nine regular-season games to go on the season, the crimson ‘cats have eight players batting over .320 (with at least 15 plate appearances) on the season, with six of those batting over .400. Paso Robles can hit it over the fence or beat you at small ball. Altogether, the team has recorded 24 doubles this season and 11 home runs, and recorded 53 stolen bases. The hottest bats on the team

currently belong to Turnquist, Bryson Hoier, and Chase Stratman. Turnquist now has an average of .442 with 26 RBI, fresh off a grand slam against Atascadero, and three long balls. Hoier is hitting .409 with 13 RBI and four dingers, while Stratman has the highest average on the team, batting .512 with 9 RBI. Saturday’s doubleheader will more than likely decide who gets the crown in the Mountain League. The first pitch is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Barnhart Field, with the second game starting at 2 p.m.
