SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Nov. 15, members of the San Luis Obispo County Farm Bureau and the Pismo Oceano Vegetable Exchange (POVE) donated 100 turkeys and over 4,500 pounds of locally- grown celery and cabbage to the SLO Food Bank. The SLO County agriculture community worked together to raise funds to cover the cost of the turkeys. This year, they exceeded their goal, raising $6,430 in total, and will donate the remaining funds to the SLO Food Bank. This donation is a continuation of a tradition first put in place by Hugh Pitts, a past SLO County Farm Bureau board member. Each year around the holidays, Pitts would donate a pallet of turkeys to the SLO Food Bank. When Hugh passed away in 2018, the donations were paused. Then in 2020, members of the community decided to work together

to keep Hugh’s holiday tradition alive. This year marks the second year that the SLO County Farm Bureau and POVE have continued this fundraiser. SLO Food Bank’s Operations Director, Emily Hansen, spoke to the importance of the donation: “We’re still seeing incredibly high needs from the community. The holidays can be such a tough time for those just trying to make ends meet. These turkeys don’t just feed households in need but let them truly enjoy the holiday season with their loved ones.” Dan Sutton, POVE’s General Manager and SLO County Farm Bureau board member, shared how it is “warming that we get to continue this tradition in [Pitts] honor... it’s not only for the community, but it’s also to remember Hugh Pitts, and all the great things that he did.” This donation will support the record number of turkey requests the SLO Food Bank has received this year. The SLO Food Bank hopes to distribute over 2,500 turkeys and other special holiday food items before the end of the season. Thank you to all involved in continuing this This donation will support the record number of turkey requests the SLO Food Bank has received this year. Contributed photo heartwarming tradition.

Templeton School District Looks at State Assessments The Board suggests agendizing a discussion on the potential vaccine mandate in March 2022 By MELISSA GUERRA

TEMPLETON — Templeton Unified School District (TUSD) met for a regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, Nov. 18 at 6:15 p.m. The meeting opened with a reminder that masks are required inside the building except for those who have exemptions. The first item was to report on closed session. The report stated that Trustee Nelson Yamagata made a motion to approve the readmittance of a student, which was approved 5-0. The denial of interdistrict transfers was approved 5-0, and no action was made on the personnel review and possible action, nor on the legal counsel on potential litigation.

Public comment opened with a suggestion of creating a fundraiser for those within the school who wouldn’t otherwise be able to have a Thanksgiving or Christmas. The next comment was by Jennifer Grinager, who represents Moms for Liberty and the opposition to the impending vaccine mandate. She expressed her concern with the special meeting to approve more COVID funds which would force the district to adhere to the impending mandates. She also addressed the idea that special meetings that come up after the agenda is first created could be notified to parents via email so that those who don’t check the TUSD site daily could still be informed. Several more parents called in to ask to put on a future meeting a discussion about the vaccine mandate and how TUSD plans on handling it so that parents can plan around that. Following public comment Trustee, Yamagata addressed the issue of vaccine

mandate and that until the district knows when it is planned to come through and what it entails, they can’t begin to plan their response to it. Yamagata stated that by best guess, it will be July 2022 and that it would be good to agendize around March of next year. The consent agenda was approved with a 5-0 vote. The next was the instructions report, which covered the California assessments and did not mandate that all students take the Smart Balance Assessment but that there were other assessments available. The district took into consideration all the difficulties of the year of distance learning and made the choices for their students based off that information. Vineyard made the decision to use the Fast Bridge Assessment, while high school students did take the Smart Balance Assessment. Benchmark assessments are being administered so that the school can see throughout the year how the students

are progressing. For students who have never taken the assessment because it was suspended in 2019/20, the school is creating a program so that the students can get familiar with the process and the assessment before the spring when they will take the assessment and have it recorded with the California data. The assessments are scheduled to begin after spring break. Next was the resolution for national special education day. Dec. 2 is National Special Education Day because it is the date the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) was signed into law in 1975. The IDEA made education available to all children and stipulates that children with disabilities have a right to the same free and appropriate education that is available to every other child. The motion passed 5-0. The next item was regarding legislation passed that affects personnel. The new legislation AB 438 was passed in relation to classified staff layoffs that will be in effect

Supervisors Choose Two Draft Maps to Further Analyze for Redistricting New map submissions will no longer be considered, but input on the two maps is still accepted By MELISSA GUERRA

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors held a special meeting to discuss redistricting on Friday, Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. The redistricting process began in March when the update came that the census data wouldn’t come through until later, and the timeline was set for the entire process. In July, the first redistricting hearing was held, and community input was heard ahead of census data. Oct. 26 was the second redistricting hearing to consider draft maps from the public and advisory committees. Revised finalist maps will be published on Nov. 24, and the fourth redistricting meeting will be held on Nov. 30, at which time the Board will approve a final redistricting map or plan. The county ordinance will be introduced on Dec. 7, and the Board will amend the county ordinance to reflect the map on Dec. 14, just ahead of the deadline. The themes from the public comment from previous meetings were presented as follows:

Plans were submitted that aligned with the different themes, and then significantly more public comments came in at future meetings. The recommendations from staff were 1. Conduct a hearing to consider County Staff Advisory Committee initial draft maps and publicly submitted maps 2. Eliminate six publicly submitted maps that have total population deviation of more than 10 percent and one. Map that has been requested to be withdrawn by the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce and 3. Select no more than three maps with less than 10 percent total population deviation for final consideration at the fourth redistricting hearing on Nov. 30 and 4. Limit consideration of any further submitted maps from the public to those making minor changes to the three finalist maps and submitted no later than Nov. 21 and

5. Provide staff further direction about the finalists’ maps, in compliance with legal requirements, as necessary The submitted maps were presented in the meeting, and then the meeting was opened up to public comment. The same themes from the public were represented in the discussion. Some commenters mentioned Cal Poly’s inclusion into the city of SLO as being important, and others highlighted the Coastal areas and the need for them to stay together to get fair representation. A large number of public comments mentioned the wish for a citizens committee, which is largely not done in California counties. After public comment, Supervisor John Peschong read a public comment letter from a citizen in Los Osos who did not wish to be included with Paso Robles and expressed concern about white supremacy, racism, and support of Trump and then commented, “I read that to you today because that’s what I’ve been working against and trying to get people to get you to understand, district 1 is your neighbors… They’re good people. That’s what really upsets me is that people in other parts of the county can believe these types of things… your whole point is to be able to decrease the vitriol in our county to raise the vitriol, and writing an op-ed piece like that, that’s what you did.” Supervisor Gibson commented that in an effort to move forward to try to create some stability that the Board bring Map A forward for final consideration, which went to vote prior to all Board members making their comments. The motion was voted down 3-2, with only Supervisor Gibson and Supervisor Dawn Ortiz-Legg in favor. Supervisor Peschong commented to dismiss rumors and to clarify his position that the election was run fair in San Luis Obispo county when Biden was chosen, and that he was not in D.C. on Jan. 6 then made a motion to eliminate the six publicly submitted maps that the population deviation exceeded 10 percent, withdraw the chamber of commerce first map per their request, and to select the Patton map (ID 74786) and the San Luis Obispo new map (ID 75760), limit consideration of further maps from the public, and to limit to the two maps. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Debbie Arnold. The motion passed 4-1, with Supervisor Ortiz-Legg in opposition and Supervisor Gibson voting in approval but with protest against the Patton map, which he stated did not follow the necessary guidelines. Supervisor Gibson then made a motion to also approve Map B, which was seconded by Supervisor Ortiz-Legg but did not pass with a 2-3 vote. Supervisor Gibson moved to direct staff to perform an analysis of acceleration and deferral in the two maps relative to Map A, which represents the status quo. This motion was seconded by Supervisor OrtizLegg. The motion did not pass with a 2-3 vote. The next meeting for redistricting will be held on Nov. 30, and the links will be available on the district website at slocounty.ca.gov/Departments/Board-of-Supervisors/ Board-Meetings,-Agendas-and-Minutes.aspx.

the current 2021-2022 school year. This will change the manner in which classified staff are communicated if staffing changes need to be made to their positions. One of the major changes is that classified employees currently can be laid off in the current year, and the legislation changed it so that they can only be laid off for the following year, as well as giving preliminary notice of the change of being laid off by Mar. 15, and final notices by May 15. Employees have a chance to submit a request for a hearing after the preliminary notice. The last item on the agenda was the change to the superintendent contract. As a management employee, it does not fall under the represented groups that bargain for scheduled salary increases. The recommendation to approve the contract amendment, which was approved 5-0. The next meeting of the district will be held on Dec. 9, and the agenda and links to the meeting will be on the website when they become available at tusd-ca.schoolloop.com/

Jury Convicts Kejuan Bynum of Second-Degree Murder Bynum stabbed to death 23-year-old Cristopher Vento Wilson STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — District Attorney Dan Dow announced that a San Luis Obispo County jury has found Shandon resident Kejuan Guy Bynum (DOB 08/21/92) guilty of second-degree murder for the stabbing death of 23 year old Cristopher Vento Wilson. The jury also found that Bynum committed the murder with a knife. At a separate hearing, Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen found true that Bynum had suffered a prior conviction for robbery in 2015, a violent felony

under California’s Three Strikes Law. At trial, the jury was presented with evidence proving that in the early evening of Jun. 1, 2019, Bynum assaulted Cristopher Vento Wilson on two separate occasions while at a residence in Shandon. During the second assault, Bynum stabbed Cristopher Vento Wilson multiple times, resulting in his death. “We thank the jury for their focused consideration in hearing this emotional case,” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “We hope that this verdict brings some degree of solace to Cristopher’s family, friends, and the community so affected by this senseless act of violence.” Bynum is held without bail at the San Luis Obispo County

KEJUAN BYNUM

Jail pending his sentencing on Dec. 13. As a result of his murder conviction and prior conviction for robbery, a violent felony under California’s Three Strikes Law, Bynum faces a maximum of 31 years to life in state prison. This case was investigated by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff ’s Office and was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Delaney Henretty.

DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS

Convicted Murderer Jason Greenwell Granted Parole After 11 Years in Prison District Attorney Dan Dow responds to parole board decision to grant parole despite objections STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — On Thursday, Nov. 18, a two-person panel of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Parole Board granted parole to Jason Adam Greenwell, 32, one of five defendants convicted in the September 2010 murder of 15-year-old Dystiny Myers in Nipomo. Greenwell and his crime partners

bound and savagely beat young Dystiny, then buried her in a shallow grave near Santa Margarita Lake. Before they fled, they set a fire. Dystiny’s bound and partially burned body was later discovered in the grave. This was Greenwell’s first parole hearing since his conviction. Greenwell, 20 at the time of the crime, has been disciplinary free while in prison. Members of Dystiny’s family attended the parole hearing by video and strongly objected to his parole. A representative of the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office attended the hearing and voiced a forceful objection to the release of Greenwell based on the vicious

nature of the crime and continued danger to the community should he be released. “I strongly disagree with the Parole Board’s decision to release Mr. Greenwell into our community after serving only 11 years for such a shocking crime” said District Attorney Dan Dow. “My office will aggressively seek review and repeal of the Parole Board’s decision in this case.” In 2013 Greenwell pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 15 years to life in state prison. At the time of his sentence individuals convicted of murder received no “good time” credits. Meaning, Greenwell was required to serve everyday of 15 years prior to even being considered for parole.

In 2016 Proposition 57 was passed which provides individuals convicted of violent crimes, such a murder, up to a 1/3 or 33 percent reduction in their sentence. As a result Greenwell was granted paroled after serving only 11 years for his part in the murder. Three of the murderers, Ty Michael Hill, Frank Jacob York, and Rhonda Wisto, are serving sentences of life without the possibility of parole. A fourth, Cody Miller, took his own life while in prison in June 2016. The District Attorney will seek a review and reversal of the Parole Board’s decision directly to Governor Gavin Newsom.

Woods Humane Society Announces

‘Giving Tuesday’ Matching Challenge Donations up to $20K Will Be Doubled to Help More Homeless Animals This Holiday Season STAFF REPORT

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Donations to Woods Humane Society will go twice as far for homeless animals this Giving Tuesday – the internationally celebrated day of charitable giving and generosity – which takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Thanks to a group of local compassionate animal friends, including the Sparacio Foundation, all donations made to the organization between now and Nov. 30 will be matched, up to $20,000. “During this season of thanks, we are incredibly grateful for all that this community has done to help change the lives of homeless animals,” says Woods CEO Neil Trent. “The generosity of our SLO County neighbors and friends has allowed us to provide thousands of dogs and cats with shelter, medical care, and a loving home. However, there are still many animals in need of help. In celebration of Giving Tuesday, we are asking the community to partner with us once more.” Trent notes that Woods Humane Society is a nonprofit organization that receives no tax funds, and instead relies on support from donations, grants, bequests, fundraising events, and fees for services to conduct its life-saving work. Woods provides shelter, medical care, spay and neuter surgeries, and adoption services that add up to $800 per animal, on average, for more than 3,000 cats and dogs each year. In addition to taking in surrendered pets from local community members who can no longer care for them, the organization transfers animals from overcrowded shelters and animal rescues, both within San Luis

Obispo County and throughout the state. As part of the organization’s commitment to managing companion animal populations, Woods also provides low-cost spay and neuter services to San Luis Obispo County Animal Services, many other local rescue organizations, and owned animals in the county. The Woods medical team has performed more than 5,000 surgeries this year at its two clinic locations. Additionally, Woods offers a Humane Education Program for local youth, and dog training and behavioral assistance through its Woods University Behavior and Training Department. The Woods Humane Society Giving Tuesday matching challenge runs through midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 30. Donations can be made in person, by mail, or online at WoodsHumane.org.

After leaving Stockton, Lynn spent time in Encinitas, Modesto, and the Merced area, before settling down in Atascadero, CA. Lynn was an appreciator of art, music, food, animals, and humanity. She always put her wholehearted effort and love into these endeavors, which certainly made the world a better place. Lynn could also be quite adventurous, spending time water skiing, snow skiing, windsurfing,

and always taking “A short hike” which, was never short. But as much as Lynn enjoyed taking part in all these activities, the most important thing to her was the people she did these things with. As a radiological technician, Lynn touched so many people with her easy-going disposition, soft touch, and empathy. Scared people, people that might die. But Lynn always made them feel better, even if the only time she spent with them was for a short exam. Sometimes she met these people over and over through-

out their treatment for serious illnesses. Many came back after their recovery to thank her. Some didn’t survive, but Lynn always remembered their names, their families, and their story. The most distinguishing mark of Lynn, whether at work or play, was her laugh. You could hear it from far away, and you always knew that it was her. Everyone that knew Lynn will miss this special person, and that laugh, for the rest of their lives. Lynn is survived by her siblings June Gentry, Janet Wolhart, Gail Eastburn, Amy

ave you ever wondered why there are so many white pickup trucks on the road today? For a while, I thought it might be illegal to drive a blue truck, or we were back in Hen ry Ford’s days when he said you could buy any color car you wanted from him as long as it was black. Every major manufacturer today either consults with or has “colorists” on staff to advise them on the best color to package their product in. For trucks, the best-selling color is white and has been for years. There are several logical reasons why. White is the only color that doesn’t fade; the color white reflects heat, so the pickup cab stays cooler than, say, a black truck; white trucks actually get better performance in hot weather because air conditioning is used less, making the truck more fuel-efficient; white trucks last longer and have a higher

trade-in value (red, orange and yellow have the worst); companies like white trucks because they can buy them year after year and know they’ll still be available and they don’t have to paint them to have a uniform colored fleet; white trucks appear bigger than they are; names and advertising stick out better on white trucks; and white trucks are safer, having 12 percent fewer accidents than black trucks because they are more easily seen, except in blizzards, of course. I think one of the biggest reasons white trucks are so popular is they don’t show water spots, dings, or dirt. Years ago, we had a white Ford Econoline truck that we called Ewe Haul because we hauled sheep in it. We bought it from my Grandpa for $500, and to my knowledge, it had never been washed in its lifetime, and it still didn’t look as dirty as a clean black vehicle after two minutes on a dirt road. The “colorists” also say that the color white projects a sense of honesty, purity, freedom, good taste, and elegance. Although I must say, I didn’t feel all that elegant driving that old Econoline full of sheep that looked like a bulldog with its flattened nose, engine inside the cab, and one thin

layer of sheet metal between you and a concrete bridge abutment. You can say all the nice things you want about white trucks, but to me, they are still B-O-R-I-N-G! The colorists have discovered some fascinating things. For instance, silver, white and black trucks have the highest resale value, and red trucks are the most often overpriced. On more domestic matters, did you know that men prefer white bedrooms while women prefer blue? Did you also know that the Yellow Taxi Cab Company painted its cabs yellow because they were easier to see? The colorists don’t have all the answers, though, and they still don’t know why men like yellowbased red while women prefer blue-based red. Or why bronze induces a very negative response. They don’t know why old-time cowboys hardly ever wore red shirts while they practically became the official uniform for miners. Colorists also don’t know why weightlifters can lift more weight if they wear blue shorts, why more people buy blue toothbrushes than they do red, and why yellow and red stimulate hunger. (Which explains the color of

stacks on their sides in a row in prepared loaf pan, making sure sides without filling are on both ends touching pan. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until loaf is golden brown and center is baked through. Cool bread in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. For glaze, in small bowl, stir together powdered sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and enough milk to make thin drizzling consistency. Invert bread onto a serving platter. Turn the loaf over and drizzle with glaze. Serve warm. Note: If using nuts, sprinkle over pie filling on rounds before assembling the loaf. If using sugar sparkles, lightly sprinkle on unbaked loaf before baking. Cheers!

McDonald’s signs.) I’m so glad they’re making a few trucks that aren’t white, but you have to be careful in buying a colorful truck because the color you pick says a lot about you. Yellow means you’re frivolous, weak and are stressed out; beige and tan convey a sense of power, and blue green means you’ve arrived financially. When men reach their obligatory mid-life crises, they are most often drawn to black and red trucks. Red especially communicates a sense of freedom and excitement. Dark brown means you’re a depressing person, while silver means you’re highly complex. Dark blue conveys a sense of respect and responsibility, while orange and grey mean you’re cheap. The color orchid makes people nauseous. Even though green is the color of money and makes people feel wealthy, green trucks are hardly ever stolen. But that’s still not incentive enough for me to go out and buy a truck the color of split pea soup with orchid trim.

Speaking these words aloud amplifies them and creates a vibration of love that you are sending out to the Universe. Love creates healing within you and in the world. Consider this practice as an opportunity to tune in to the vibration of love. You can do this for anyone who gets your goat to free yourself from the bondage of such negativity. Rather than reacting with anger or upset, you now respond by raising and praising in the name of love. Being tuned into love allows you to experience harmony as the smooth and steady impulse of your soul, leading to the quick demonstration of what you truly and deeply desire for yourself and your life: the calling of your heart which is gently nudging you internally. For example, when stuck behind slow traffic: I raise you, and I praise you

in the name of love. Here is a positively life-affirming affirmation for gratitude you can use this week: I am grateful, thankful, and much obliged. My heart overflows in appreciation for all that is. I am gifted, shifted, and lifted. I’m well blessed, highly favored, and my cup runneth over. So I lean into my good and say yes, bless, bless. I’m on the high side of awesome at the top of my game. I praise my life in the name of love. I give thanks for the abundant good all around me. I’m on fire for Spirit and unafraid to show it. My words uplift, inspire, and create. And oh yeah, I’ve lost a little weight. And so it is. Rev.

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: WILLIAM T. SMITH AKA WILLIAM THORNTON SMITH CASE NO. 21PR-0366 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the Non-Domicillary WILL or estate, or both of WILLIAM T. SMITH AKA WILLIAM THORNTON SMITH. A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by KATHERINE SMITH in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN LUIS OBISPO. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that KATHERINE SMITH be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s Non-Domicillary WILL and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The Non-Domicillary 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 with limited authority. (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: 12/14/21 at 9:00AM in Dept. 9 located at 1050 MONTEREY STREET, MAILING ADDRESS: 1035 PALM STREET, ROOM 385, SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA 93408 Your hearing will be by video conference. Do not come to the courthouse for your hearing. (Probate) MEETING ID: 161 241 5408 PASSWORD: 79513 You may also access the Zoom information form the court website at https:// www.slo.courts.ca.gov 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 DE-154) 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. Attorney for Petitioner JEFFREY S.

such recordation. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (916) 939-0772, or visit this Internet Website www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 20956. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (916) 939-0772 or visit this internet website www.nationwideposting. com using the file number assigned to this case 20956 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you

must submit a bid by remitting the funds and affidavit described in Section 2924(c) of the Civil Code so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Eat to Beat Holiday Stress stress that’s so bad, but rather how we handle it. Some is actually good and keep us on our toes, like jumping out of the way when a moving vehicle gets too close or ducking when a flying object comes our way. Even laughing can be a good stress! The problem arises when the body is in a constant siege and prolonged state of tension. Stress is not a disease, but if un-arrested, it can lead to disease. Over time, chronic stress reduces your ability to sense trouble, deal with conflict, or problem-solve.

DR. CINDY MAYNARD COLUMNIST

Stress Takes Its Nutritional Toll Nutritionally, stress robs the body of important minerals and nutrients such as vitamins B, C, D, E, and selenium by increasing excretion and reducing the absorption of these nutrients. Stress hormones such as cortisol drains nutrients from the system, which further raise stress hormone levels and escalate the stress response. Many people respond by emotional eating and turn to candy, cookies, chips, and other high-fat, high-sugar foods, or even alcohol to relieve their anxiety, which further depletes the system. That’s why it’s so important What Exactly is Stress? we replace these nutrients with food. When I googled the word stress, I got over a billion hits. The fields of It’s hard to eat smart when you’re under stress, but that’s the time psychiatry, theology, medicine, and anthropology define stress as a loss your body and brain need it the most.

And no one is immune—adding to our anxiety levels are the upcoming holidays when stress levels are on over-drive. You want to achieve stress resiliency, but you don’t know-how. Here’s something that can help: Your nutritional intake can increase your stress-fighting ability, boost your mood, and help improve your mental well-being so you can enjoy your holidays in peace.

Brain Stressors • Caffeine (in amounts greater than 2 cups) • Refined Sugar, found in items such as cookies, cakes, soda, syrup • Alcohol in excess (Recommended intake 1/day for women; 2/day for men) • Fast Foods with high amounts of saturated fat • Skipping Breakfast • Processed and Fast Foods Brain Boosters • Fresh fruits 1- 2 ½ cups • Whole Grains or Complex Carbohydrates such as cereal, bread, bagels, or pasta • Water 8 cups or more • Dark Green Leafy Vegetables 2-3 cups • Low-fat Dairy Products such as yogurt, cheese, or milk • Essential fats, such as olive oil, avocado Stress Down Nutrition alone can’t solve all the effects of stress of a person’s lifetime, but it sure goes a long way in building up your system and protecting it against the onslaught.

Stress Robbers and Brain Boosters In our fast-paced society, we have learned to love stressor foods. But stressor foods tear down rather than replenish the body. If they are the main staples in your diet, you’re contributing to the problem rather than solving it. How well your body is nourished prior to and during a stressful event will affect how well you handle the stress. High-octane, nutritious food is the best fuel to combat your stress. During the holiday season, you may want to take particular care and compensate by making sure your intake of Brain Boosters is optimal.

The Pet Boost: Furry Friends Help Seniors Feel Less Lonely STAFF REPORT

M

any older adults experience feelings of loneliness and isolation as they age, but pets can provide the companionship and love seniors desire. A new survey conducted by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care Network, found regular interaction with animals can help to reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness in older adults. The most frequently cited benefits of pet ownership are company, comfort, unconditional love, entertainment and improved mood. In fact, 86 percent of pet owners agree they would be lonelier and less happy without their pet, and 58 percent agree that they would not be as physically healthy without their pet. The companionship and love provided by a pet can be especially meaningful for those most at risk for isolation. The survey found that pet owners who live alone are significantly more likely to report increased benefits of pet ownership.Owning a pet can also be an important factor for seniors deciding where they will live as they age. According to the survey, 82 percent of older adults say they will not consider moving to a senior living community without their pet. While interaction with animals has been shown to improve mental and physical well-being in older adults, research confirms that seniors don’t need to own pets to experience the benefits. Those who regularly interact with, but don’t own, pets report feeling better just spending time with animals owned by family, friends and neighbors.

There are many ways seniors can interact with animals without taking on the responsibility of pet ownership. Here are a few ideas: • Volunteer at a rescue organization or animal shelter. Many rescue organizations and animal shelters could use an extra hand. Seniors can help provide care for animals, including feeding, watering, restocking supplies, washing dishes, walking dogs, cleaning cages and enclosures or socializing with the animals. Volunteers experience the benefits of interacting with pets, and they can provide some care to an animal in need. • Get to know your neighbors’ pets. Seniors who regularly walk their neighborhoods will likely see pet owners walking their dogs. Asking to join them for a walk might lead to new friendships with neighbors and dogs. • Connect with a therapy animal. Pet Partners therapy teams, made up of a pet owner and his or her registered animal, go into many locations where seniors are living or being treated, such as hospitals, hospice centers and care communities. • Visit a pet store. Some pet stores sell small animals, such as guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, gerbils, mice, rats, certain geckos, bearded dragons, snakes, and specific types of frogs, birds and fish. Visiting can provide a pet fix! With so many options available, finding the right animal interaction for each individual should be as easy as a walk in the dog park.

Tips

to Help You Prepare

for Retirement STAFF REPORT

A

fter spending years working hard and saving up, retirement is that welcome reward of relaxation, travel, and new hobbies, or even a transition to something new such as consulting or a new business endeavor. While most people can say definitively that they would like to and plan to retire, the issue of when is often less clear. The ideal age for retiring depends on several things—occupation, health status, financial circumstance, and the state where you reside. While some pension plans allow you to start collecting early-retirement benefits as soon as age 55, generally, most people today are opting to retire later. Nationally, the average retirement age is 64, though in some states, the average retirement age is 66. The decision to retire later can impact several important life decisions. For example, healthcare considerations for someone who retires at 65 versus 55 are quite different. We’ll highlight some points to consider as you gear up to slow down.

1.

Coverage Shifts Medicare eligibility begins for most individuals around age 65, so if your retirement coincides with that milestone birthday, it’s a good idea to learn more about Medicare as well as Medicare-Related Options for those enrolled in Medicare Part A and B. For those not yet eligible for Medicare, and for other considerations not covered by Medicare such as vision, prescription drugs, and dental care, retirement might mean a shift from employer-sponsored insurance to individual insurance. If you had employer-sponsored insurance, your employer did the insurance research and provided you with coverage options. Now, as a retiree, you can select the coverage options that align with your health and financial needs.

2.

Financial Considerations By leading a healthy and active life, many people are living longer, which means that even if you retire later, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy. However, costs are also rising on everything from groceries to gas, making the prospect of living on a fixed income stressful. With a little advance planning, though, it doesn’t have to be. Prescription medication is common as you age and can be a regular expense. Nearly 90 percent of adults aged 65 and older use at least one prescription drug. Maintaining a focus on your health now also means you may be able to avoid chronic health issues down the road, and you can consider coverage options that cover regular doctor’s visits and exams. Annual wellness visits, eye exams, and dental visits help you monitor and even potentially prevent more serious, and costly, health issues. Most eye conditions can be treated if found early, for example, so you may want to look for health coverage that includes vision benefits. Oral health can also deteriorate with age, and over time, teeth can become more brittle and susceptible to decay, infection, and gum disease. Most dental insurance provides coverage for regular visits and any special procedures or treatments that may arise.

3.

Resources When it comes to healthcare, it’s important to plan and research to make your retirement years enjoyable ones. Fortunately, there are many tools available to guide you in making decisions that work best for you. You’ve worked hard to achieve retirement, so enjoy it by taking the necessary steps to ensure continued good health and proper coverage.

had purchased in 2005. We wanted to do something to generate revenue between then and when we sell the property. So, 2006 was the first year we sold trees, and we enjoyed it so much we ended up keeping it going, and now it’s really become a family tradition. My three boys and my daughter, they love to be at the tree lot helping,” said Armet. Families have been hunting for the perfect trees to bring into their homes roughly since the 1830s in the US; it’s a longstanding activity that brings the family together and the spirit of the holidays into our living rooms.

Nutcracker Ballet.” Eighty performers, ranging in ages from six to 60, will be dancing at the Spanos Theater at Cal Poly and bringing together dancers from across the county representing Class Act Dance in Paso Robles, Main Street Dance in Templeton, and for the first time, CORE Dance in San Luis Obispo. Dancers are looking forward to returning to live in-person performance after having to cancel last year’s performance due to COVID restrictions. Rather than their traditional ballet, performers participated in a worldwide virtual performance of The Nutcracker with the Nutshell production. According to Suzi Cusimano, NCDPAF Board President, the production had a late start from not knowing if COVID restrictions would allow them to perform. But, when they knew the show would go on, performers began learning their choreography in September. By Oct. 1, the casting was announced. This year’s casting includes: » Jaklyn Woodland as Clara » Justin Grapentine as the Nutcracker Prince » Mylee Kuhn as the Rat Queen » Kate Terrizzi as the Snow Queen » Katie Kowall as the Spanish Queen » Ginger Cusimano as the Arabian Queen » Haruka Nishimura as the Russian Queen » Julia Steffenauer as the Rose Queen » Alyssa Jenkins as the Sugar Plum Fairy » and many more performers! This year’s Nutcracker performers have been preparing for months for perhaps one of the most anticipated productions of the year. This year’s production of The Nutcracker will include favorite scenes with some new additions. “We have a lot of younger children this year, so we added another youth scene to the production,”

all to join us,” shared Michelle Hido, San Miguel Firefighters Association secretary and treasurer. The parade route goes through Mission Street between 11 and 14th Street. Hido gives some helpful tips on how to best enjoy the parade, “Bring warm clothes, your friends and family, and your folding chairs or sit in your truck bed and watch the parade. Come set up early on the East side of Mission Street and get a bite to eat or a hot drink from our local restaurants.” The following San Miguel restaurants will be open for the parade: • Leo’s Café will have to-go food and tamales (249 10th Street) • Manny’s Pizza (1425 Mission Street) • The San Miguel Market & Deli (1299 Mission Street) • The Elkhorn (1263 Mission Street) will be open- selling tacos and holiday cheer Following the parade, Santa Claus will be available for photo ops! After he rides in the parade on the historic 1940 Ford Firetruck, Santa will be visiting the Children of San Miguel in the Fire Station’s training room.

SHOPPING CONTINUED FROM A1

more holiday shopping to small businesses. Again, businesses big and small are suffering. The COVID pandemic caused the entire world to close its doors, and many of those businesses never managed to open up again. Following that year of shutdowns and inconsistencies, small businesses are now struggling to keep up with inflation and employee shortages. According to the Wall Street Journal, in 2020, the pandemic caused the permanent closure of over 200,000 establishments. In California, nearly 40,000 small businesses had closed by September 2020, more than any other

state in the nation. According to a report compiled by Yelp, half had shut permanently, far more than the 6,400 that had closed permanently in New York. The Yelp report was compiled in September 2020 and states, “As of Aug. 31, [2020] 163,735 total U.S. businesses on Yelp have closed since the beginning of the pandemic (observed as Mar. 1), a 23 percent increase since Jul. 10 [2020]. In the wake of COVID19 cases increasing and local restrictions continuing to change in many states we’re seeing both permanent and temporary closures rise across the nation, with 60 percent of those closed businesses not reopening (97,966 permanently closed).” The restaurant industry showed to be among the most impacted, totaling

Cusimano explained. As a tradition, each year for Elegant Evening, performers display themselves as mannequins in full costume in the windows of downtown Paso Robles businesses. The Main Street Association initially canceled this year’s Elegant Evening, but a few businesses still put together some fun for the start of “Nutcracker Season.” The production’s directors, Cheryle Armstrong, Theresa Comstock, and Molly McKiernan, “hope both new and returning audience members will be inspired by this heartwarming story that has been brought to life for many generations in theatres throughout the world.” “The families, the kids, the choreographers are all so excited to put on this performance. It being the 25th year is extra special,” Cusimano said. For more information on The Nutcracker performance or to purchase tickets, visit ncdpaf.org/nutcracker

Children can tell Santa their Christmas wishes, and parents can get a photo of their little ones with Santa, Mrs. Clause, the Grinch, Cindy Lou, and the elves. Additionally, for the past 17 years, the San Miguel Firefighters Association (SMFA) has collected toy donations to be distributed by Santa Claus after the parade. This year, the SMFA plans to continue that tradition. The firefighters are looking for small, new, unwrapped toys for kids ages 2-12 years old. Donations can be dropped off at the San Miguel Fire Station during business hours, or pick-up can be coordinated as well. Additional toy donation boxes are located at: • Leo’s Cafe • San Miguel Garbage • Elkhorn Bar Toy ideas include: • Small sports equipment • Educational toys • Small toys • Arts and crafts To help with donations (and perhaps your sanity going into the busy season), the Elkhorn Bar is offering $1 off any drink to anyone who brings in a new, unwrapped toy to the bar. To add to the holiday cheer, residents will once

As for bars and nightlife, there were 6,451 total business closures at the end of August, of which 3,499 were permanently closed (54 percent). Retail businesses followed closely behind, with 30,374 total business closures, 17,503 of which are permanent (58 percent). The beauty industry has seen a total of 16,585 closures. Of all closed businesses in the beauty industry, 7,002 won’t reopen (42 percent), a significant 43 percent increase since July 2020 when we reported that 4,897 of all closures in the beauty industry were permanent.

California and Nevada have the highest rate of total closures and permanent closures—they also currently have the highest unemployment rates as of October 2021. On the upside, as of September 2021, 85 percent of temporarily closed businesses have reopened, and we have even seen some new businesses open in our downtowns. Just one purchase from a small business starts a ripple effect of local economic growth, supporting our friends and families and the lively downtowns that we love.
