TUSD School Board Changes Reopening Date for Middle and High Schools By BRIAN WILLIAMS brian@pasoroblespress.com TEMPLETON — Templeton Unified School District trustees pushed back the reopening of middle and high schools for hybrid learning to Jan. 5 during Thursday’s meeting. The school board reversed course on the secondary level grades after hearing from 36 people — mostly students, teachers and parents — via email and Zoom. The vast majority said the previously approved Nov. 30 start for hybrid learning was being rushed and would put more stress on the final three weeks of the first half of school. Trustees agreed. “I don’t think we got the time right,” said trustee Nelson Yamagata before voting to reopen TMS and THS on Jan. 5. “We are jumping the gun here. It’s not a natural breakpoint. I’m sorry.” If Templeton Middle School and Templeton High School began hybrid learning on Nov. 30, students would be in that model for two weeks and then take finals the third week before going on their winter break. Several people said they had “serious concerns” CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

school boards are accessible to the public and accountable for their schools’ performance, and third, school boards ensure that students get the best education for the tax dollars spent. The most important school board’s responsibility is to work with their communities to improve student achievement in their local public schools. School boards derive their power and authority from the state. In

compliance with state and federal laws, school boards establish policies and regulations by which their local schools are governed. PRJUSD Board Candidates Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Board has four seats open all four-year terms. This year 15 candidates are vying for election. Incumbents Chris Bausch and Joan Summers, and challengers Jim Reed, Leonard Washington, Laura Parker, Ruben

Canales Jr., Caitlin J. Vierra, Nathan Williams, Jim Cogan, Dorian K. Baker, Frank Triggs, and Greg. S. Goodman. LOCAL MEASURES The City of Paso Robles placed a 1% sales tax measure on the ballot, Measure J. The City estimates the sales tax increase would generate $10 million annually that the City would use to maintain essential and general services such as fire protection/paramedic services; wildfire/natural disaster emergency preparedness; 911 emergency response times; public safety; equipping first responders; fixing streets/potholes; and school protective services. Measure J needs a simple majority from voters to pass. TEMPLETON ELECTIONS Templeton Community Services District Board has three seats open all four-year terms. Incumbents Debra J. Logan, Pamela Jardini, and Navid Fardanesh are vying for re-election against challenger Dianna Vonderheide. Templeton Unified School District Board has three seats open all four-year terms.

SPOOKY SEASON

What to do in North County for Halloween By CONNOR ALLEN connor@pasoroblespress.com NORTH COUNTY — For the first time since 2015, Halloween falls on a Saturday night this year and has many North County residents wondering where they can go to satisfy their spooky urges or take their little devils for a fun evening. The Paso Robles Press reached out to several local Halloween attractions in the North County and compiled a list for those looking for a safe, scary Halloween. The Haunt Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, options are limited this year, but that does not mean that no fun can be had. Atascadero’s popular haunted house, The Haunt, is back this year full of safety precautions while still being just as frightening as ever. This year the multiroom, scare experience has turned fairy tales into scary tales and incorporated everything in between. The Haunt, which began conceptualizing their concept in March and construction in May, has brought an immersive experience complete with

animatronics, hidden actors, and all the long, foggy corridors your heart could desire. Unlike most scare mazes and haunted houses that pop up a few weeks before Halloween and are gone before the sign of the first turkey, The Haunt spends the year working on their maze and uses over 60 volunteers to do so. Each year a number of volunteers, many times local high school students, take on a room, then plan it and design it with a little help from The Haunt team.

PRJUSD Provides Update to Board on Hybrid Plans By CAMILLE DeVAUL For The Paso Robles Press PASO ROBLES — Paso Robles Joint Unified School District trustees received updates on the current budget cycle and preparations for its hybrid plans. For the first time in months, the PRJUSD School Board met in person for its Tuesday, Oct. 27, meeting. The meeting was still streamed live via YouTube for the public. The jam-packed agenda opened with Diversity Panel Representative Niya Williams and Principal of Alternative Education Dan Sharon presenting information on the proposed #EmpowerKindness project to promote unity, eliminate hate speech, and improve campus climate and culture. Williams and Sharon, both on the Paso Robles Diversity Panel, talked of how this “endeavor will empower students to participate in a welcoming and safe return to our PRJUSD campuses.” A student pledge card was created and will be passed out to students when they return to campus. The card is meant to be placed in a visible space, like a binder, as an anti-bullying reminder. The card features the mascot from every school in the District with #EmpowerKindess and includes the following poem, “No matter my mascot or where I’m taught, I know kindness is welcome, and hate speech is not.” The back of the card reads, “PRJUSD will not tolerate bullying, hate speech, or derogatory language on any of its campuses.” The District has been preparing to bring students back with a hybrid model for their elementary students and is on track to begin next week. PRJUSD Deputy Superintendent Jennifer Gaviola updated trustees on the reopening plan. On Nov. 3, transitional kindergarten and kindergarten students will return for some face-to-face instruction. First- and second-grade students will return on Nov. 17, and thirdthrough fifth-graders will return on CONTINUED ON PAGE A15

2020 Livestock Shows Recap By ASHLEY PAULSEN PR FFA Student Staff Report

T

he organizational challenges traditionally tied to livestock shows were amplified in 2020, as FFA members had to battle COVID-related restrictions on in-person gatherings. The Paso Robles FFA Chapter took on these struggles in the Salinas Valley Fair (SVF), California Mid-State Fair (CMSF), and various other virtual shows throughout the spring and summer, all while adapting to the new “normal” that has come along with the pandemic. With high placers in all species, Paso Robles FFA members were not deterred by the obstacles in their way. SALINAS VALLEY FAIR The Salinas Valley Fair took place in mid-May; five members showed their sheep, and one showed their heifer. Congratulations to all who participated and to those who helped along the way.

“The challenges from this year have driven me to change my mindset. At first, it was hard to stay motivated when there was no guarantee that we would have a show at all, but I had to change my thought process and continue to practice just as hard, if not more, to ensure that no matter the setting, my lamb and I would be prepared,” Paige Autry said, who showed the 2020 Supreme Grand Champion for Market Lambs.

Paso Robles FFA had more than 30 members show their livestock in late July, pulling in more champions through the challenges. “Working hard all year for the check [from Salinas Valley Fair] and it not coming is heartbreaking,” Cody Domingos, a secondyear FFA member, said about the cancelation of the local fairs. At the Mid-State Fair, I decided to put my lamb through auction and continue on with the virtual show. While it is still a show, it is nothing like the real one.

Your mindset changes and your overall attitude does as well. You don’t really want to put in any effort because you already know that it’s online. But through hard work, determination and perseverance, I was able to have a pretty successful year.

SLO County Residents Invited to Join 2020 Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Oct. 31 Participants will walk as individuals, families or small teams across Central Coast STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — The Alzheimer’s Association is inviting SLO County residents to join the fight to end Alzheimer’s by participating in its largest signature fundraising event of the year, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Oct. 31. This year, to keep walkers, staff and volunteers safe, the Alzheimer’s Association encourages participants to walk as individuals or in small groups on sidewalks, tracks and trails across their local communities. “This year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be everywhere,” said Lindsey Leonard, executive director of the Alzheimer’s Association California Central Coast Chapter. “The pandemic is changing how we walk, but it doesn’t change the need to walk. This year, more than ever, we need to come together to support all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia. With the dollars raised, the Alzheimer’s Association can continue to provide care and support to nearly 3,000 local families during these difficult times while

also advancing critical research toward methods of treatment and prevention.” For Val Ferrero, Vice-Chair of the SLO Walk Committee, this will be her third Walk to End Alzheimer’s since the death of her husband, Lee. Val and Lee both became extremely involved with the Alzheimer’s Association following his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Together, they have built many fond memories of the Walk. “This year’s challenges are enormous, but nobody’s given up,” said Val. “It’s just another challenge in the world of Alzheimer’s. We are a community in San Luis Obispo — if we all reach out together to help one another, we can do it. We will do it.” While this year’s Walk may look different, participants are committed to the cause. Kathy Brown is walking this year in honor of her husband, Craig, who passed away at age 64 in 2018 after battling Younger Onset Alzheimer’s. To raise money for her Walk team and celebrate her wedding anniversary with Craig on Oct. 14, she held an Italian feast fundraiser. After making and selling food for pickup all day, Kathy was able to raise $2,000. Brandon Tokanoga also found success in the kitchen with his fundraiser for this year’s Walk. Instead of hosting his annual local art show, Art Against Alzheimer’s, Brandon sold over 450

Handcrafted for the Holidays Begins Nov. 3 at Studios on the Park STAFF REPORT PASO ROBLES — At the end of every year, Studios on the Park transforms into a holiday gift shop. The Handcrafted for the Holiday exhibition, which features over 30 local artists and craftspeople, fills the space and allows gallerygoers to buy art at accessible price points. The display goes from Nov. 3 to Dec. 30. This year’s Handcrafted for the Holidays exhibition will feature unique handmade creations, including jewelry, ceramics, glass, wood items, silk, felt, paper goods, garden items, as well as affordable wall art. A portion of all sales from the exhibition will help the local artists and go back into programming for children, teens, and adults at Studios on the Park. Sales Manager Elaina Stangle, who organized the show, says that “the extension of the show into a two-month exhibition this year, will allow Paso Robles residents, as well as visitors, plenty of time to shop for that special one of a kind, handmade gift.” According to Stangle, she hopes that the Handcrafted for the Holidays will allow people to step away from shopping online and help

support local businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. “We all need to do our part in helping artists and small businesses get through these difficult times. What better way than to shop for the holidays,” she says. Not only will visitors see the Handcrafted for Holidays show, but they’ll also find items from Studios’ resident artists as well as the Up Front Gift Store. “We have so many talented people in our community,” Stangle says. “I am always amazed at the art that comes through our doors. It is such a wonderful feeling when I have visitors tell me that they wish they had a place like Studios on the Park where they live.” Discover the art of shopping when you step inside Studios on the Park, 1130 Pine St., Paso Robles. Given the current circumstances, Studios on the Park staff are happy to set up a one-on-one shopping experience for people who cannot come in during open hours. For more information on the show, resident artists, and other information, call 805-238-9800 or go to www.studiosonthepark.org.

Many of our constituents are at higher risk when it comes to COVID-19 and we know that our volunteers and participants appreciate our commitment to keeping all involved healthy and safe.” More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease — the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

In-Person Learning: Students Adapt to COVID-19 Guidelines NC Christian School Administrator Hutchinson says larger schools can do it By BRIAN WILLIAMS ATASCADERO — North County Christian School Principal-Administrator Ken Hutchinson is confident public schools can bring students back into classrooms for face-to-face learning. “Obviously, there will be challenges the public schools, the bigger schools will have that we don’t have, but I think it is very much doable,” Hutchinson said. “I think you have to be creative.” All schools in San Luis Obispo County opened the 2020-21 school year in distance learning after landing on the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list and subsequently placed in the most restrictive tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Schools could apply for an in-person waiver for elementary grades, K-5. Private schools in SLO County, such as North County Christian in Atascadero, took advantage of the waiver and started the 2020-21 school year mostly on time. “It has worked very well,” said Hutchinson, adding that North County Christian School opened with in-person learning on Aug. 26 and on Oct. 12 brought its middle school students onto campus for in-person instruction due to the county being out of the most restrictive tier for the required two weeks. North County Christian opted not to have high school students this year.

Schools can go to in-person instruction as long as they adhere to county, state and CDC guidance for reopening schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the schools have opted for hybrid plans, especially middle and high school grades, and are bringing students back in phases. Early in October, Atascadero, Paso Robles and Templeton school districts submitted hybrid learning plans and elementary waiver applications to their boards for approval and then to SLO County Public Health for review. Hybrid learning combines face-to-face instruction with online learning. In the context of coronavirus school reopenings, a hybrid model reduces the number of students on campus by moving some course delivery online. Hutchinson said North County Christian School considered the hybrid model, but with only 39 elementary students, in-person instruction was logistically doable. The school has nine middle school students. Enrollment is close to past years. Each school day begins with staff and students receiving a health check. The same goes for visitors. Parents wait in the parking lot during their student’s health check and leave when they receive the all-clear from staff. “We ask the questions that are required of us and we take their temperatures,” Hutchinson said, adding that for him, the health check is the most critical piece. “I would say all of the guidelines that are there and the most valuable one, and I think one regardless of a pandemic or not, are the health checks,” he said. “One of the

concerns is parents sending students to school who are sick and if you could solve that problem, and this helps with that, health checks, do a lot with that, I think that would help a lot in the long run.” Everyone who steps on campus is required to wear a face mask. “We wondered how the students would handle the face coverings, and generally, I think they have handled them very well,” Hutchinson said. “If I had to rate it, I’d say they have handled it better than the staff some days.” Following the health check, students are immediately separated into, the term nowadays is cohorts, which is where they stay for the rest of the day. North County Christian has four cohorts because it combined some of its classes — K-1, 2-3, 4-5 and then middle school. Each cohort is no larger than 14 students with no more than two staff, generally only one teacher, Hutchinson. White dots were painted on the grounds — outside of classrooms and leading up to the office, for example — six feet apart to serve as social distancing reminders. Once inside their classroom, the students have assigned seats that are more than six feet apart. Each student has their own set of classroom supplies. “The guideline, six feet is the number we hear, but the other part of that is as much as possible,” Hutchinson said. “We put a lot of energy into distancing within the classroom.” There are procedures for how the students line up to go outside to not just

go out into a big clump of students. They are organized as well as when they come inside. There is lots of hand sanitizing and hand washing. Classrooms and high-touch areas are sanitized throughout the day and at day’s end. Hutchinson said the COVID-19 changes do not interfere with the education part of the school at all. It’s just become part of classroom procedures for students. “It was almost as though they (students) were just happy to be back — tell us what we need to do so that we can do it to be here — that seemed to be their attitude in the beginning and they continue to have.

It’s worked very well,” Hutchinson said. At the end of the school day, parents wait in the parking lot for the students to come to them. Preparing for in-person instruction within the guidelines took much planning, and it was essential to include all of the staff, Hutchinson said. “You had to be on the same page and understand how things work,” Hutchinson said. “And certainly, the second day of school was better than the first day of school. We did some things better and learned some things.” For more information on North County Christian School, visit online educatingforeternity.org.

FIVE-CITIES AREA

Conversion of Drinking Water Disinfectant to Free Chlorine STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works will change the disinfectant to free chlorine in the Lopez Project water distribution system from Oct. 28 through Nov. 19. Because the County provides water to the cities

of Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, Oceano, Avila Beach, and Port San Luis, these areas may also be converting to free chlorine. Free chlorine is a stronger disinfection process than the blended chlorine treatment typically used by the County. This annual switchover of disinfectants helps to ensure

water mains remain free of harmful bacteria. This is considered a best management practice in the industry. Each customer has their own sensitivity level to the taste and or odor of chlorine. Although many detect no change, others may notice a taste or chemical odor similar to a swimming pool. Free chlorine can be minimized

or removed by boiling water, using a carbon filter, or filling a container and leaving it to vent overnight. Chlorination is the most common disinfection practice used in drinking water. Most customers will not need to take any precautions as the water remains safe to drink by Federal and State drinking water standards.

LOCAL NEWS JUSTICE

Senate Confirms Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court STAFF REPORT WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following a unanimous vote by the Judiciary Committee last week, the Senate just confirmed Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett to become the 115th Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court. “Having confirmed her to the Circuit Court in 2017 with bipartisan support, the Senate has already undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of her record,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said after President Trump made the nomination last month. Throughout Justice Barrett’s career, she has faithfully upheld our U.S. Constitution as written. The American Bar Association gave Barrett its highest rating, and she has an impressive track record across the legal profession—as a judge, professor, and litigator. Most important, she will bring a valu-

able new perspective to our High Court: • Justice Barrett is the first mother of school-aged children to become a Supreme Court Justice. She is also only the fifth woman ever to serve. • As the mother of a child with special needs, she understands the issues and concerns confronting our nation’s most vulnerable people. • Justice Barrett will be the only current justice to have a law degree from a

school other than Harvard or Yale. She graduated at the top of her class from Notre Dame Law School in Indiana. Justice Barrett has made her philosophy clear: She will not legislate from the bench. “Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society, but courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life,” she said during her confirmation hearings.

“The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches, elected by and accountable to the people,” she added. One letter—written by Justice Barrett’s former law clerks—calls her approach principled and independent-minded. “Judge Barrett taught us that a good judge will not always like the results she reaches; a good judge goes wherever the law leads,” it reads. Justice Barrett is the very model of a sympathetic yet impartial judge, according to her colleagues at Notre Dame Law School. She is exactly the type of person whom the American people deserve to have sitting on their Supreme Court. “If we are to protect our institutions, and protect the freedoms, and protect the rule of law that’s the basis for the society and the freedom that we all enjoy—if we want that for our children and our children’s children—then we need to participate in that work,” Justice Barrett said.

ELECTION 2020

SAN LUIS OBISPO — San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong reported that San Luis Obispo County has once again set a record number of registered voters — 184,050, eclipsing the last record of 176,343 set during the Presidential Primary election earlier this year. Furthermore, an unprecedented number of Vote By Mail (VBM) ballots have already been voted and returned to the Election Department: 82,795, 45% of total registered voters. VOTE-BY-MAIL REQUEST DEADLINE PASSES, BUT YOU CAN STILL VOTE

Tuesday, Oct. 27, was the last day for requests for VBM ballots to be mailed. Vote-bymail ballots are still available

after this date but only to voters present at the County Clerk-Recorder’s offices or at the 23 Voter Service Center. If a voter requested a voteby-mail ballot and has not yet received the ballot, they are urged to contact the Clerk-Recorder’s Office immediately so their ballot can be replaced. Voters can also check on the status of their vote-by-mail ballot on the web at slovote.com. Voters must sign their ballot identification envelope containing the ballot. Without the voter’s signature, the ballot cannot be counted. New legislation allows election officials to accept voted vote-by-mail ballots postmarked on or before Election Day and received by mail no later than 17 days after Election Day.

DONATION

Scary Good Motivation to Give Blood This Week STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY — Halloween week sounds like a perfect week to donate blood and it is even more so now, thanks to a Central Coast company. Scarecrow Vampire Fangs have partnered with Vitalant to give blood donors timely thank you gift. All blood donors who give now through Oct. 31 will receive a pair of customizable costume vampire fangs. Scarecrow Vampire Fangs has supplied costume fangs to such movies as “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” “Interview with a Vampire,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Blade,” among others. Donors can give at the following donation centers and community blood drives: • SLO Donation Ctr. 4119 Broad St. #100, • Santa Maria Donation Ctr. 1770 S. Broadway, • Los Osos Community Blood Drive at the Grocery Outlet, Wed., Oct. 28, 1-6 p.m., 1130 Los Osos Valley Rd. • Arroyo Grande High School Community Blood Drive Thurs., Oct. 29, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 495 Valley Rd., • Allan Hancock College Community Blood Drive, Thurs., Oct. 29, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 800 S. College, • Oasis Senior Center Community Blood Drive Sat., Oct. 31, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 420 Soares Ave.

Canceled Blood Drives Continue During Pandemic As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, canceled high school and college blood drives make it challenging to maintain a sufficient blood supply for cancer patients and others in need. “Blood donors are increasingly needed at donation centers and community blood drives to make up the shortfall from canceled school blood drives,” said Mona Kleman, Senior Manager of Donor Recruitment at Vitalant. “Having a great community partner like Scarecrow Vampire Fangs makes donating fun. We’re not vampires. But we do need your blood to help save lives.” Vitalant needs to collect over 300 units per day to meet the needs of local patients on the Central Coast. All Blood Donations are Tested for COVID-19 Antibodies Vitalant continues to test blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies to find potential donors who could give convalescent plasma in the future. Donors whose blood tests positive for antibodies can help a COVID-19 patient with their plasma, while their other blood components could help a cancer patient, trauma victim or someone with another serious medical condition. How to Donate Blood To learn more and schedule an appointment to give, visit vitalant. org or call 877-25- VITAL (877258-4825).

COVID-19 UPDATE

State Releases New COVID-19 Guidance on Theme Parks, Professional Sports and Personal Care STAFF REPORT

SACRAMENTO — The California Department of Public Health on Tuesday, Oct. 20, released new guidance and made updates to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy related to theme parks, professional sports, and personal care services. The Blueprint is built off of a scientific understanding of the virus, how it is transmitted, and the prevalence of COVID-19 in each county. While the rest of the country is seeing major increases in COVID-19 transmissions, national health experts are pointing to the state’s slow and stringent framework — along with the public’s adherence to health guidance — as one reason California has yet to see a similar trend.The changes announced today fall in line with the state’s approach. Theme Parks Guidance This guidance applies to theme parks and amusement parks. Smaller theme parks (defined as parks with an overall capacity fewer than 15,000) may resume limited operations in Tier 3 (Moderate/Orange) with capacity limited to 25 percent or 500 people, whichever is fewer. Smaller parks operating in Tier 3 (Moderate/Orange) may only open outdoor attractions, and ticket sales must be limited to visitors residing in the same county as the park. All theme parks may resume operations in Tier 4 (Minimal/Yellow) at 25 percent capacity. Theme parks must follow state guidance and take steps to reduce

the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Theme parks must be prepared for inspections by public health officials and are required to address any findings and implement any recommendations. Steps theme park operators must take to reduce COVID-19 transmission include: • Implementing reservation ticketing systems and contacting guests 24 hours before arrival to confirm reservations and screen for symptoms. • Implementing a reservation or virtual queuing system for individual attractions, if possible. All in-person queuing or waiting in line for an attraction must occur in outdoor settings only. • Complying with Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings. The use of face coverings is mandatory throughout the park in all settings unless actively eating or drinking in designated dining areas. Sporting Events at Outdoor Stadiums Guidance This guidance applies to live professional sporting events at outdoor stadiums and racetracks. Outdoor operations may resume in Tier 3 (Moderate/Orange) with capacity limited to 20 percent and in Tier 4 (Yellow/Minimal) with capacity limited to 25 percent. Ticket sales must be limited to customers traveling within a 120-mile radius. This guidance applies only to professional sports and does not apply to youth or adult recreational, amateur, semipro, or collegiate sporting compe-

titions. Outdoor stadium operators must take steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission including: • Implementing advanced ticketing systems and pre-assigned seating to help maintain physical distance. Venues are not permitted to provide will-call or sell tickets on the day of the event to enable adequate planning for physical distancing within the venue. • Eating and drinking are permitted in assigned seats only. • Prohibiting tailgating and similar activities that encourage mixing different households in parking lots and other venue areas. • Discouraging guests from yelling, singing, booing and other similar actions. • Complying with Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings. Face coverings are mandatory throughout the stadium in all settings unless actively eating or drinking in assigned seats. All non-participating athletes, coaches, and other support staff must wear face coverings at all times except when eating or drinking. Personal Care Services The state also updated the Blueprint for a Safer Economy to allow all personal care services to operate indoors with modifications. Based on further review of the evidence and the sector risk profiles, CDPH has determined that personal services businesses have a similar

The update applies to all counties, including those in Tier 1 (Widespread/Purple). Personal care services, including esthetic, skin care, electrology, body art professionals, tattoo parlors, piercing shops, and massage therapy, must follow existing state guidance to create a lower risk environment for employees and the public.

PUBLIC HEALTH

Over 1,200 People Got Flu Shot at Drive-Through Clinics on Oct. 21 STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — Over 1,200 people got a free flu shot at two drive-through clinics hosted by the County of San Luis Obispo on Wednesday, Oct. 21 in Atacadero and Arroyo Grande. Local health officials say now is the time for those who have not gotten their flu shot yet. “We had a great turnout at our drive-through clinics yesterday.

Thank you to those community members who took the time to attend,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer. “Getting your flu shot is now more important than ever. If you were not able to get one at a clinic yesterday, please take the time to get your flu shot sooner rather than later.” The drive-through clinics served as a mass vaccination drill, which helped public health

workers practice for providing COVID-19 vaccinations when a vaccine becomes available. Anyone who did not participate in the clinics can still get the flu vaccine from their regular health care provider, many local pharmacies, or County Public Health Department clinics by appointment. The flu shot is covered by most insurance, including Medi-Cal. In California, flu activity

usually begins to increase in late November or December. Health officials agree that getting vaccinated is the best defense against the flu. Local officials say that getting a flu shot sooner rather than later is ideal because it takes a couple of weeks after vaccination for the body to build immunity. “Because the flu can look very similar to COVID-19, if you have flu symptoms, you will likely

have to get tested for both flu and COVID-19,” Dr. Borenstein said. “Save yourself the trouble and get your flu shot this fall.” People at higher risk of getting severe COVID-19 illness are also at higher risk of severe flu illness, including people 65 years and older; people who smoke or have underlying medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, asthma, lung disease, neurologic disorders, and weakened immune

systems; pregnant women; and children under 5 years of age. To learn more about flu and the flu vaccine, visit cdc.gov/flu. For updates on COVID-19 in SLO County, visit ReadySLO. org or call the recorded Public Health Information Line at 805-788-2903. A staffed phone assistance center at 805-5432444 is available Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to assist with COVID-19 questions.

SLO Court: Arraignment Continued for Arata, Three New Co-Defendants STAFF REPORT SAN LUIS OBISPO — Black Lives Matter protesters Tianna Arata and her three new co-defendants were in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court together for the first time Thursday morning. Their arraignment was continued to early December to give the three new co-defendants’ lawyers time to review the case. They did not enter pleas. All four are facing charges stemming from a BLM protest on July 21 in San Luis Obispo. During the protest, demonstrators blocked Highway 101 and police claimed some protesters committed acts of vandalism. They are all due back in

TIANNA ARATA

court on Dec. 3. Protest organizer Arata was charged with 13 misdemeanors, including suspicion of false imprisonment, suspicion of unlawful assembly, disturbing the peace and obstruction of a thoroughfare. Arata was initially arrested at the protest. Protester Elias Bautista was arrested at the same time for allegedly assaulting a police officer

attempting to arrest Arata. Bautista pleaded not guilty to one felony count of resisting a peace officer and two misdemeanor counts on Sept. 3. M a rc u s M o n t g o m e r y, Joshua Powell, and Amman Asfaw became co-defendants with Arata after being arrested on Oct. 16. Montgomery was charged with suspicion of false imprisonment, obstructing a person’s free movement in a public place and resisting or delaying a peace officer. Powell was charged with suspicion of resisting or delaying a peace officer. Asfaw was charged with suspicion of false imprisonment. Three other protesters, Robert Lastra Jr., Sam Grocott, and Jerad Hill, also

were arrested on Oct. 16. They are scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 16. Lastra Jr., was arrested in Atascadero and is believed to have thrown a skateboard at a silver BMW, breaking its back window, during the protest. Lastra Jr., and Hill were charged with suspicion of false imprisonment and felony vandalism. Grocott faces three charges of suspicion of false imprisonment. The arrests have received attention locally and nationally. City of San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon has criticized San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow for his handling of the case. Dow has rebuked her comments, saying she is using it for political gain.

PRPD: Body of Man Found in Vehicle Outside of Restaurant STAFF REPORT PASO ROBLES — The body of a 44-year-old Paso Robles man was found in a vehicle in the parking lot on the corner of 12th and Riverside streets, according to the Paso Robles Police Department. At 8:20 a.m. on Wednesday, PRPD received a report of a man sleeping in a vehicle in the Cool Hand Luke’s parking lot. Officers arrived and found Donald Fogo in the vehicle. Paso Robles Emergency Services responded and confirmed the man was deceased. The death does not appear suspicious at this time and officers are continuing to investigate, PRPD reported.

Man Dies in Four-Vehicle Crash on Highway 101 South of Paso Robles STAFF REPORT PASO ROBLES — A 67-year-old San Luis Obispo man died in a four-vehicle pileup Monday night, Oct. 26, on Highway 101 south of Paso Robles. The man’s name was not released pending notification of family, according to the California Highway Patrol. At approximately 6:52 p.m.

Monday, a lane closure was in place for the southbound No. 2 lane of Highway 101 at the Highway 46 West offramp in Paso Robles for road repairs. A CHP unit was at the closure when a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Cahleigh Martin, 22, of Templeton, was in the southbound No. 2 lane of Highway 101 south of Spring Street at a speed of 60-65 mph.

Martin reported looking over her shoulder to clear and confirm it was safe to merge into the No. 1 lane and made the lane change. When she looked back in front of her, she saw traffic was stopped about 50 feet in front of her vehicle. She was unable to stop and rear-ended a 2018 GMC Terrain, driven by the 67-yearold man, stopped in front of her. Due to the impact, the

man sustained fatal injuries. Martin reported a minor injury. The Terrain was pushed into a 2001 Toyota Avalon, driven by Louie Bellen, 35, of Camarillo. He was not injured. The Avalon was pushed into a stopped 2016 Chevrolet Trax, driven by Ralph Buckner, 69, of Fountain Valley, who was also not injured. The collision was north of the actual closure and north

of where the repair work was taking place. Martin was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs and distracted driving did not appear immediately to have been a factor in the crash, CHP reported. A detour for southbound Highway 101 traffic was established through Paso Robles, using Vine Street to Highway 46 West, where traffic reentered the freeway.

‘To Go or Not to Go… That is the question’

are isolated most of the day. I also struggle with the fact that although some students can thrive with distant and independent learning, many cannot and are missing out on the vital educational and social benefits of in-person teaching. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Time and time again, I hear parents concerned about their child’s mental well-being. Their children are showing signs of depression, have a lack of interest in school, and frustrated with distance learning. As a result, some parents are desperate to find alternative schools with fulltime in-person classes. Their decisions aren’t because the teachers and staff aren’t doing their job at online teaching, it’s because they are putting their child’s mental, social and educational well-being at the forefront...and to be quite honest, some parents aren’t cut out to be teachers. I know I’m not.

COMMENTARY

very day as my husband and I go to work, we leave our son at home, trusting that he’s attending his virtual classes. We are fortunate that he is a senior in high school and self-sufficient, but we know that without a teacher or a parent home to really monitor, that the probability of phone distractions are high. I struggle with the fact that he, as well as many other students,

I also hear different perspectives from teachers and administrators. Some educators are unsettled that they or students who attend school in-person may bring the virus back to an at-risk person at home. Some educators feel apprehensive that as a teacher, more and more responsibilities are being placed on them, that takes away from their primary job, which is to educate our youth. They are not only asked to play the role of teacher, but they are also being asked to be social workers, active-shooter protectors, and now, quasi-health care workers watching for signs of COVID-19 and ensuring social distancing. Despite those concerns, there is a common thread amongst the educators that I have spoken with: They see the negative impact distance learning has on students. They recognize something fundamental has to change in our educa-

tion system to meet all students’ academic and personal needs. As I sit and scratch my head, trying to make sense of what is best for our children and our community, these thoughts come to mind: Our world does not protect us from injury or disease. We can do our best to eat healthy and exercise, but it may not stop us from getting cancer. We can do our best to wipe down the carts at the grocery store, but it may not stop us from getting COVID-19. With the proper safety protocols in place, can in-person hybrid schools be achieved just like hospitals, airlines, and grocery stores who continue to run with COVID-19 protocols in place, despite the inherent risks? Can we protect our community from the severity of the pandemic and consider it equally important as the long term social, emotional, and academic benefits in-person education has on our

Prop. 24 Would Toughen Privacy Protections

THOMAS ELIAS COMMENTARY

O

n its surface, few California propositions have ever been as confusing as this fall’s Proposition 24, which aims to toughen a 2018 state law allowing consumers to regulate how much of their privacy Internet companies like Facebook and Google should be allowed to violate. To fully understand the stakes, it’s helpful to watch the Netflix documentary “The Social Dilemma,” which shows how social media companies change people’s behavior by using information they collect on what emails folks open, which websites they visit, where people live and travel and

much more. For each bit of such information these companies collect and sell, they get a couple of pennies per buyer, which does not sound like much but adds up to billions of dollars every year. If you wonder why American political opinion is so deeply divided, former tech executives, including the chief designer of Facebook’s “Like” function, described in the documentary how people who do a Google search in various localities often get very different information than folks who live elsewhere. The same for people who donate to one party and those who donate to another. In each case, prior opinions and preferences are reinforced so that even when things change in real life, they often do not alter people’s perceptions and opinions. The 2018 California Consumer Privacy Act aimed to correct some of this. Now the same Piedmont-based real estate developer who caused legislators to pass that law is behind Prop. 24. He contributed almost all

the $5.3 million given (as of Oct. 1) to the pro-24 group Californians for Consumer Privacy. That committee name and the name of the lead anti-24 group, Californians for Real Privacy, are similar enough to confuse many voters. This is nothing new; the California initiative movement has a long history of misleading committee names. The big contributor, Alistair Mactaggart, backs Prop. 24 as a way to toughen the existing law, which allows consumers to request free reports on their personal data that are collected and sold by businesses. Businesses covered include those with more than $25 million in annual revenue and ones that sell and share personal data of more than 50,000 persons a year or earn at least half their annual income from selling personal data. Companies can be fined for violations. Prop. 24 would add to these very modest protections by giving each consumer power to stop companies from tracking them precisely, allowing you to forbid the sale of information

children? Because after all, children are the future, and if their mental well-being is not addressed, then what will the future look like? The apprehensions are complex, and there isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” answer. Everyone’s concerns are valid, and the school district has so much to weigh in on when making decisions that are best for students and the community. They have put countless hours in to ensure the safe opening of schools, and I hope the transition to hybrid learning is successful. And finally, without placing my personal needs above what’s best for our community, I hope this year’s senior class gets to experience the remainder of their final year at PRHS as Bearcats on campus.

on things like how often you visit a gym or McDonald’s, your health insurance claims, and much more unless you explicitly give permission. You would also be able to stop companies from tracking your movements via cellphone apps and automotive electronics. Prop. 24 also sets up America’s first official privacy regulators, the California Privacy Protection Agency, modeled partly on European regulators, which provide their citizens with far more privacy than most Americans now have. The proposal also would make it harder for state legislators, continually lobbied by the big Internet interests, to weaken existing privacy rights. One reason for Prop. 24 is that Mactaggart compromised with legislators two years ago, pulling a very tough privacy proposition he had qualified for the 2018 ballot in return for passage of the current law. That removed the possibility of Mactaggart’s putative proposition losing, which would have left Californians with almost no protection.

Mactaggart promised to come back with stronger rules later, and Prop. 24 represents that effort. “This makes it much harder to weaken privacy in California in the future,” says the ballot argument signed by his wife Celine, “by preventing special interests and politicians from undermining privacy rights.” Little money has been spent to oppose this measure, and the arguments against it basically claim it would inflict compliance expenses on small businesses. Opponents also gripe that it leaves intact large agencies’ ability to save things like academic and criminal records. The bottom line is that even if Prop. 24 will not create a perfect world, it’s an improvement on what we have now. There’s little reason for voters to oppose this, as anyone who prefers to be tracked and categorized can allow it, while people who want out would get a better route than today.

ment of a child’s doctor if it diverges from extremely narrow guidelines. It was a vote for medical freedom. Opposite to what Ms. Addis claims in the mailers, hers is the extreme position. In her zeal for a one-size-fits-all medical regime, Dawn Addis would force all California children to receive repeated

injections of liability-free pharmaceutical products while ignoring the tragically well-documented reality of vaccine injury, including debilitating food allergies, autoimmune disease, chronic neurological conditions, and death. Nicole Dorfman, Morro Bay

LETTER TO THE EDITORS Claim by Dawn Addis is False Editor, I have received a total of 5 mailers from Dawn Addis, candidate of State Assembly, in which she accuses her opponent, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham of being “anti-vaccine” for his opposition to

Heather Moreno for Atascadero Mayor Editor, I have known Heather Moreno for several years, and I am supporting her re-election as Mayor in Atascadero. Heather has done it right! She got involved with the City by serving on the Planning Commission for 2 1/2 years. There she learned how the City functions and how to listen to the community’s concerns. Heather was also involved with community groups in fundraising efforts for Atascadero’s Faces of Freedom Memorial. As a Korean War Marine Corps Veteran, I appreciated her involvement in this important project. Once the project was completed, Heather

“universal vaccinations in public school” and references his nay vote on SB 276 as evidence. This claim is both false and disingenuous. As a public-school teacher and administrator, Ms. Addis must know that universal vaccination was law of the land before SB 276 and that missing even one

has continued to support the Memorial and attends all patriotic events held at the Memorial. In 2012, Heather became an Atascadero City Council Member, and in 2018 she was elected Mayor. She has used her experience on the Planning Commission and the City Council to become a strong and knowledgeable Mayor. Also, her background as a Certified Public Accountant assists her in making smart budget decisions for the City. She has been an excellent Mayor, and we need her to continue to lead Atascadero into the future. I ask everyone, including all veterans, to vote for Heather Moreno for Mayor of Atascadero. Tommy Torgerson, Atascadero

Mattson’s Ready for the Challenge Editor, Although I was a bit surprised to see the joint press release by the Atascadero Police and Fire Associations attacking my leadership competency based on my position on Measure D-20 (the 1 cent tax increase), I am not bothered by it but should address it for the Atascadero voters and residents. The press release fell short of a clear judgment of my ability to lead and fulfill my future duties as a City Council member. To suppose that a City Council candidate must either choose to support a poorly written and unrestricted tax measure or enter the race with a comprehensive economic plan for the City’s future is

of the dozens of required doses would have had a child expelled. What Mr. Cunningham’s nay vote represented, in reality, was a vote for the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship. It was a vote in opposition to government-appointed bureaucrats having the power, no, the obligation, to override the medical judg-

The Integrity of Amanda Hawkins and Vote-by-Mail Editor, I confess that I’m not a registered Democrat. But I am an Atascadero citizen, and a nationally recognized expert on voting rights and electoral systems, and I was shocked to see false claims about the integrity of voting by mail in an opinion piece by Amanda Hawkins in my hometown newspaper. Ms. Hawkins implied that voting by mail was not safe and secure and that we are “trading a perceived risk of health for the integrity of our votes.” Ms. Hawkins then offered up some examples of voter registration

preposterous at best. Never before has such a standard been suggested. The City adopted an economic development plan in 2009, and holding that plan up to the light, we can see it has not been followed. I am not the only resident dissatisfied with the City’s effort to accomplish the economic development we could expect. Case in point, when a new development displaced a local coffee shop owner, he was not approached by the City or any elected officials about how he could relocate and save his business. Instead, he was approached by the mayor of Paso Robles who asked what could be done to move him to Paso Robles. “E” for effort, Mr. Martin. How would I expect any greater effort from our City after appeasing their appetite for revenue with a tax?

errors that have nothing to do with vote-by-mail, allegations of “multiple people” receiving wrong ballots or ballots lost (yes, sometimes mail gets lost), and a single case of voter fraud, Caesar Abutin, who cast votes with his dead mom’s ballot, in races where 10 million or more people voted. I suppose I also need to point out, Mr. Abutin was caught and prosecuted. The only integrity that is questionable here is the quality of Ms. Hawkins’ information. My research has demonstrated that vote-by-mail is a safe and secure method for voting, one which millions of Californians have been using for years (https://blog.ucsusa.org/ michael-latner/voter-fraud-

proponents-are-frauds). But don’t take my word for it. The Republican Secretary of State of Washington publicly states that, like California, their universal vote-by-mail system has seen a “very low incidence of any kind of voter fraud.” Or Oregon’s top election official, also a Republican, who says there is no sign of voter fraud in their state, which has used universal vote-by-mail for years. Indeed, the most Republican state in the Union, Utah, uses universal vote-by-mail, “forcing” every voter there to receive a ballot, to the apparent horror of Ms. Hawkins. That’s right, Republicans are not opposed to vote-bymail. The small group making

I can’t. So I don’t support it. Instead, I’m running for City Council to give a voice to those who expect more. Measure D-20 is a bandaid ... or is it? It has no sunset clause or specificity to the direction of the spending. The City assured it will go to public safety, and I believe that. But it is where the rest of the funds will go that concerns me most. On September 22, the current City Council discussed the concerns around Measure D-20 and suggested they could create an oversight committee. Councilperson Bourbeau suggested the taxpayers “trust us.” He went on to suggest it would be nice to use the money to build a new playground. Is a playground a priority? On the other hand, maybe the tax is not a bandaid. Maybe our City will need an additional tax no matter A Note About Our

these claims, which includes the current president, are a cabal of fraudulent actors who, instead of trying to legitimately compete for the votes of all Americans, seek to restrict voting and cast doubt on the integrity of this election because they are losing. I don’t fault Ms. Hawkins. She has been hustled by putting her faith in bad actors. But the good people of Atascadero should know better. Your vote is safe and secure, whether you vote by mail, early in-person, or on Election Day. What is important is that everyone has an opportunity to exercise their right to vote, then let the best candidates win. Michael Latner, Atascadero

what. This is California, and that is not unheard of. But if I’m expected to support such an idea, I will need a comprehensive plan from the City on how the money will be used. Ironically, the City employees — police and fire — are asking taxpayers to support a tax increase without a plan. We need at least one member on the council dedicated to our economic development needs and moving the needle. I look forward to serving our community interests and making sure they get the money they need one way or another. Many young entrepreneurs and professionals are working toward success in Atascadero, and I will serve them and their concerns during my term. Nic Mattson, Canidate for Atascadero City Council

The Petition for Probate requests that Laurie Ridgeway and Mark Reiser be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The Petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The Petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: February 2, 2021 Time: 9:00 a.m. Dept: 9 Address of Court: 1050 Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93408 If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: L a u r i e Ridgeway, 6640 Linne Rd, Paso Robles, CA 93446, (805) 238-1530

If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.  If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have

been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holder’s rights against the real property only. THIS NOTICE IS SENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING A DEBT. THIS FIRM IS ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT ON BEHALF OF THE HOLDER AND OWNER OF THE NOTE. ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED BY OR PROVIDED TO THIS FIRM OR THE CREDITOR WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.  NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site www.STOXPOSTING. com, using the file number assigned to this case 2024940. 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.  Date: 10/12/2020  Carrington Foreclosure Services, LLC 1500 South Douglass Road, Suite 150 Anaheim, CA 92806 Automated Sale Information: (844) 477-7869 or www.STOXPOSTING.com for NON-SALE information: 888-313-1969  Tai Alailima, Director PUB: 10/22, 10/29, 11/05/2020 LEGAL CM 676 NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF MARION JANE DAVIS CASE NUMBER: 20PR0296 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, Of MARION JANE DAVIS.

It’s on Sept. 2, and I’d organization or a business can say it’s a good day to stay close to register a day, week or month home, as is National Lazy Day, with The National Day Calendar. a day everyone ought to get off I bet you’re wondering how work. much it costs to have a National We celebrate National AbsurNo-Beard Day, a National Do dity Day on Nov. 20, but aren’t A Grouch A Favor Day or they all? And I wonder who paid National Make Up Your Mind the fee to celebrate Upsy Daisy Day? All holidays mentioned in Day, National No Bra Day (Oct. this column are real! A corporate 13 for you lecherous old men out package costs an initial $25,000 there), followed five days later by

H

Bra Day USA. What piqued my interest in these fake holidays days was when Olive Garden promoted National Fettucine Alfredo Day, which certainly got my wife’s attention as she practically lives on the stuff. All sorts of foodstuffs have their holiday, like National Coffee Day on Sept. 29, which you’re going to need to sober up from National Beer Day the previous day. But some of these days can get confusing, like National Grab Some Nuts Day. Are they referring to pistachios, almonds and pecans, which already have their days, or are they referring to something else? What bothers me is that I only saw one day that featured beef in the first three months of the year that featured beef, National Hamburger Day on March 28. The calendar of national food holidays runs heavy to vegetarians foods like Bloody Mary Day ( Jan. 1), Pie, Oatmeal, Chocolate Cake, Cereal, Hot Chocolate, Wine, Spinach, Clam Chowder, Ranch Dressing, Potato Chips (followed by National Tater Day), Eggs Benedict, Pretzels, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Sponge Cake, Hummus, Croutons, Hagfish (whatever that is), Ramen Noodles, Biscuits and

Gravy, Trail Mix, French Fries, Toasted Marshmallows, Peanut Butter and Jelly and on and on. So, “Where’s The Beef ?” If Sushi can have its day, why not Flank Steak? If Gazpacho and Date Nut Bread can have their day, why not National Tripe or National Menudo Day? But I am a big supporter of National Chips and Dip Day, which falls on March 23, which also happens to be my wedding anniversary, so we can celebrate at Taco Bell instead of Mortons or Ruth’s Chris. Vegetarians have many holidays to appropriately celebrate, like Eat All Your Veggies Day, National Vegan Day and World Vegetarian Day. Lima Beans, for gosh sakes, even have their day! And police officers have all sorts of days to celebrate with National Cream-Filled Donut Day, Glazed Donut Day, Cream Puff of Pastry Day and two days to celebrate National Donut Day, on the first Friday in June and in early November. I’m looking forward to May 11, which is National Eat What You Want Day. www.LeePittsbooks.com Lee Pitts is an independent columnist for The Atascadero News and Paso Robles Press; you can email them at leepitts@leepittsbooks.com.

The grateful hose is unkinked, and you begin to understand how blessed you are. One beautiful day my beloved and I were hiking a hill behind our condo. We were talking, laughing, and starting to feel the ache from the hike in our bodies. We began to share back and forth things for which we were grateful. We stopped for a moment to drink some coffee. I looked down on the ground and

saw rocks in the formation of a heart. Before sharing our gratitude, we were just walking on a rocky, dirt hill and feeling the ache from it. After the gratitude sharing, it was as if we had received a kiss from the universe. At that moment, we felt connected to all of life. There was a lightness about us, and we practically skipped to the top of that hill. Try this affirmation on for size — I’m grateful, thankful, and blessed. My heart overflows in appreciation for all that is. I am gifted, shifted, and lifted. I’m on the high side of awesome at the top of my game. Thank you. And so it is. Rev.

S

YOU COULD SKI ON By CONNOR ALLEN

ince the turn of the century, the Atascadero Lake Park has been known as a pleasant place to take a stroll with your family, play in the park, soak in the perfect Central Coast summer evenings while melodic tunes fill the air but did you know that it used to be a place you could bring your ski boat and shred the wake? The Atascadero Lake, which ranges approximately 30.5 acres and holds over 68 million gallons of water when full, has always been a prominent feature of the City since founder E.G. Lewis purchased the land on June 6, 1913. Lewis referred to the small lake that is filled by rain runoff as the Jewel Of Atascadero. In fact, before the town’s purchase in 1913, the lake, as well as other areas of Atascadero, were used as a military training facility for the United States Government for almost 10 years, and it was the US Army that built the original dam. Lewis dug out the lake to enlarge it, but to this day, it is only 13 feet at its the deepest point when full. Over the years, the lake has been worked on during dry periods. According to L.W. Allan’s book “Atascadero The vision of one — the work of many,” San Luis Obispo County was able to get heavy machinery into the lake bottom in 1946. It removed much of the rich topsoil that had flowed into the lake over the years. The County had another chance to work on the bottom of the lake in the 1960s. However, this time, rather than hauling the soil out of the lake, they decided to move the earth to the south

end, which has created the island we see today. In the 1920s and 1930s, a scaleddown windmill and lighthouse were stationed on the lakeside before the original pavilion was built. For years, the old pavilion served as a place for dances, roller skating, exercise classes, and birthdays until 1987 when it was declared unsafe for use. The new pavilion was built in 1990 and finished in 1992. Atascadero has many fun facts but perhaps none as delightful as the one behind a large donor toward the new pavilion. According to Allan’s text, Warner Bros. Studio donated $5,000 toward the construction costs while they were in town filming a movie with Steve Martin titled, “My Blue Heaven.” The Lake was also the setting of many Fourth of July celebrations that included speed boats, water skiing, swimming, and firework displays that brought thousands down huddled by the water’s edge at sundown. Eventually, speed boats stopped being allowed in the early 1960s, and swimming was

outlawed in the 1990s when the City Council voted to end the aquatic activity due to safety concerns. The firework shows were banned shortly after the city’s incorporation in 1979. For some time in the 1990s and early 2000s, the City of Atascadero moved away from the Lake, and it faded away as the centerpiece of the City before bouncing back in recent years. In 2013, the Friends of the Atascadero Lake, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing and maintaining the lake, was founded. Their passion and zeal for the iconic, affectionately named “Mudhole” resonated with the local community and City. Eventually, they and the City acquired a piece of land in 2015 and

dug the well that still feeds the lake. If you ask around Atascadero, you can still find some residents that first learned to water ski on the lake on July and August nights. If you are lucky enough to find one, ask them about their experience and watch their face come alive with warm and happy memories. While residents can no longer swim, the Atascadero Lake continues to inspire joy and positivity. Just two weeks ago, a local person started a snake of painted rocks to spread cheer and optimism to those walking the popular banks. The snake has grown and now has over 100 rocks from loving and creative community members in the days since.

From warm summer days to local events and holidays, Atascadero Lake has been a central gathering point for the community. As a result, it has been photographed numerous times over the last century. Photos courtesy of Rick Evans History of the Atascadero Lake

Nov. 30. Middle and high school students will begin hybrid learning in early January. Twenty-two percent of elementary students will remain in distance learning, Gaviola said.The majority of these students are staying in distance learning due to scheduling issues and not because they do not want to come to in-person learning, she added. Students will be divided into two cohorts, A and B, and will be on campus for in-person learning Tuesday through Friday, either in the morning or the afternoon. Siblings and special program students are being scheduled in the same cohort. Mondays will be a distance learning day for all students. The daily in-person schedule looks like the following: • Group A — 8-10:45 a.m. • Lunch — 10:45-11:25 a.m. • Custodial Cleaning — 10:45-11:30 a.m.

However, vote-by-mail ballots that are personally delivered at any of 23 Voter Service Centers in the County, at the 19 VBM ballot drop boxes located throughout the County, or at the County Clerk-Recorder’s offices in San Luis Obispo or Atascadero must be RECEIVED by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Drive-by-Dropoff of VBM ballots is available at all Voter Service Centers throughout the County. If you want to vote at the polls instead of voting by mail, take the ballot with you to surrender, but if you have misplaced your ballot, new legislation allows VBM voters to vote a regular poll ballot if it is determined that their ballots were not returned. At a minimum, VBM voters will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot at the Voter Service Centers. Voter Service Centers Open for Four Days of Voting There are 23 Voter Service Centers that be open from Saturday, Oct. 31- Monday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and on Nov. 3 Election Day from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Many locations that had been used as polling places in the past are not being used for this election.

Nightmare on Main Street is located at 99 S. Main St. in Templeton in a 120-year-old Victorian home. The organization, an established nonprofit organization, also gives back to the local community through donations. Over the years, Nightmare on Main, Inc. has given over $70,000 back to the community, including senior scholarships and middle school science camps. Attendees will have their temperature checked at the door and must wear masks for the duration of their time in the house. Nightmare on Main Street will also encourage social distancing and only send in customers with their immediate groups.

PRJUSD Chief Business Officer Brad Pawlowski presented a budget update to the board for the 20202021 school year. Due to a decline in attendance and California’s current economic state, Pawlowski forecasts a tight budget in future years. Compared to last year’s first month of enrollment, the District is down 211 students, which equates to a total loss of $2 million, Pawlowski said. For the 2021-2022 school year and beyond, the best-case scenario for the district would be flat funding. The worst-case scenario would be a cut of $2 to $6 billion to Proposition 98, which estimates a loss of $300 to $800 per ADA. If there is a cut to Proposition 98, then it would accumulate to a loss of $1,875,300 - $5,000,000 per ADA. For more, visit PasoSchools.org/reopen.

TUSD CONTINUED FROM A1

with the Nov. 30 start date for middle and high schools. Some students said they had gotten into a routine in distance learning and coming back for what amounted to four days of in-person instruction in the hybrid plan before taking finals did not make sense. Plus, there was no guarantee from District officials that the students would have the same teacher in the hybrid model as they had during distance learning. Jan. 5 is the start of the second half of the school year and many felt it would be less chaotic for students and staff to start on this date. Trustees had unanimously voted to reopen all TUSD schools on Nov. 30 at their Oct. 8 board meeting and apply for an elementary school in-person waiver. The board voted on Thursday, Oct. 22, to not alter the return date for its elementary schools, and approved its elementary school waiver and reopening plan. Both will be sent to the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department for review.The elementary schools are still slated to reopen Nov. 30. All schools in San Luis Obispo County opened the 2020-21 school year in distance learning after landing on the state’s COVID19 county monitoring list and subsequently placed in the most restrictive tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. San Luis Obispo County moved into Tier 2 of the Blueprint on Sept. 22. Accord-

ing to the Blueprint, once a county had been out of Tier 1 for two weeks, schools within that county can begin moving to in-person instruction. Oct. 6 marked two weeks out of Tier 1 for SLO County and that same day, Public Health Officer Dr. Penny Borenstein announced SLO County schools could begin submitting their plans. Schools that open during this time are not required to close if SLO County moves back to the purple Tier 1 — which is the first and most restrictive tier. Parents can choose between hybrid, distance or alternative learning options for their students. Hybrid learning combines face-to-face instruction with online learning. In the context of coronavirus school reopenings, a hybrid model reduces the number of students on campus by moving some of the course delivery online. TUSD’s hybrid plan for TK-2 is to have kids on campus for four half days — Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. There will be two cohorts of students, one will be on campus in the morning and the other will be on campus in the afternoon. Grades 3-5 will be divided into two cohorts — A and B. A will be on campus Monday and Thursday mornings. B will be on campus on Tuesday and Friday mornings. This schedule was proposed for middle and high school. Wednesdays will be completely distance learning for all grade levels.
