Podcast documents Kristin Smart’s mysterious disappearance

T

he unsolved disappearance of Kristin Smart motivated a Central Coast native to revisit the past through a podcast called Your Own Backyard. One night in 1996, a 19-year-old Cal Poly student from Stockton didn’t make it back to her friend’s apartment. Smart was gone. That’s about as much as Chris Lambert, host and producer of Your Own Backyard remembers—he was 8 years old at the time. One of the only reminders of the missing female is a billboard that still stands in the Village of Arroyo Grande: Kristin’s photo with the headline “Missing Cal Poly Student: Kristen D. Smart, $75,000 reward,” and information on who to call with tips. Last year, Lambert started researching the unsolved case but found there was a lack of information aside from a few news stories. At that point, he said, he started questioning why it’s taking so long for law enforcement or anyone to get answers. “It’s been 23 years, so at a certain point, you have to wonder, are you just not doing your jobs? Is this more complicated than the public understands?” Lambert said. “I want to tell it faithfully. So if they really are trying their best, I want to be honest about that.” In an effort to get a comprehensive understanding of who Kristin was before she vanished, the events leading up to her disappearance, and who Paul Flores—the last person to see her—is, Lambert’s conducting interviews with Kristin’s parents, friends, an LA Times journalist, and other individuals who knew either Kristin or Flores. Before the project was produced, Lambert

said he was nervous that he would anger many people: the Smart family, the Flores family, and local law enforcement. To get the project off the ground, the blessing Lambert needed came from Kristin’s mother Denise Smart. Lambert said he visited a commemorative plaque in Shell Beach on what would have been Kristin’s 42nd birthday, hoping to meet people celebrating her life. “When I got up there, there wasn’t anyone. It started to rain and I was getting ready to go home when a car pulled up. It ended up being Kristin’s mom who had driven all the way from Stockton to celebrate Kristin’s birthday in private with a friend,” he said. Denise told New Times that the family is thrilled the podcast is giving Kristin a voice. Kristin is missed every day, she said. “Every day, it’s on our hearts and our minds, and it doesn’t go away,” Denise said. She said the fact that there aren’t any answers to the disappearance of her daughter makes the loss difficult. “Living with the knowledge that so many people, in and out of the law enforcement community, have let Kristin and our family down, and continue to do so to this day,” Denise said, “we continue to be the victims of San Luis Obispo, from the witnesses to campus staff and incompetent law enforcement, since May of 1996. “Current law enforcement continues to work diligently, but their job would have been significantly expedited if not for the failure of so many before them,” she continued. “Yet no one has taken any responsibility for the past failures of so many who did not do their job with

integrity, compassion, and professionalism.” Lambert hasn’t reached out to the Flores Family or the SLO County Sheriff’s Office yet. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Cipolla confirmed that the department hasn’t heard from Lambert and said that because the case is still an open and active investigation, the detective on the case cannot be interviewed for the podcast. “The Sheriff’s Office is always willing to listen to any new information which may be beneficial in solving the case,” Cipolla said. The first episode of Your Own Backyard was released for free on Sept. 30 via Apple Podcasts and Spotify, and the second episode came out on Oct. 7. Lambert said he anticipates releasing a new episode every Monday. ∆ —Karen Garcia

More water pollution found near SLO County airport

Another toxic substance is reportedly polluting groundwater near the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport. In a recent investigation of nearly two dozen wells close to the airport by the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, all but one detected traces of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) or perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), industrial chemicals that have been linked to cancer and other health issues. The testing was part of a statewide investigation of PFOA and PFOS near airports or landfills, where the chemicals commonly leak from. The chemicals are present in everyday consumer products like carpet stain repellents, cookware nonstick coatings, and food containers, and they’re also in fire-fighting foams. “Because of the many different sources and uses and through improper disposal, spills, and other types of releases, [PFOA and PFOS] have been introduced into the environment and are present in some food and drinking water sources,” a Sept. 9 public notice from the regional water board stated. Of the 21 wells near the SLO County airport that tested positive, four tested at levels that rose to the “response level,”

which is when public water systems are advised to take a water source out of service or provide treatment. Since the testing, three of the four airports and 12 landfi lls in the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board’s territory have submitted work plans to further investigate the source. “Central Coast water board staff are currently reviewing the work plans to advance these investigations,” the public notice read. Domestic well users in the airport area are advised to test their wells for PFOA and PFOS and, if detected, consult with a treatment specialist to identify the appropriate treatment method. Common treatments include granular activated carbon and membrane fi ltration. Free domestic well testing is available through a SLO County pilot program, which includes sampling and lab analysis services (call (844) 613-5152 for more information). The discovery of PFOA/PFOS near the airport comes as the same region deals with trichloroethylene (TCE) water pollution. The water board’s probe into the TCE contamination took years to complete, and it ultimately alleged that a local machine shop was responsible. —Peter Johnson NEWS continued page 6

Cal Poly aerospace engineering student dies by apparent suicide

A Cal Poly student was found dead by an apparent suicide in a university housing apartment complex on Oct. 6. Daniel Maerowitz, a fifth-year aerospace engineering student, was found in his Cerro Vista apartment on campus at about 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 6, according to Matt Lazier, Cal Poly’s director of media relations. Cal Poly University Police responded to the call. In an Oct. 7 email to students, staff, and faculty, Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong and Vice President for Student Affairs Keith Humphrey said Maerowitz was involved in various student organizations on campus, including the Russian Student Association and Chabad at Cal Poly, a Jewish student group. “This news is heartbreaking and we recognize that suicide is a difficult topic to process,” the email reads. “At this time, it is important to remember that you are surrounded by a community that is here for you. We encourage you to take time to care for yourselves and each other during this time.” Business administration and marketing student Tali Pilip is a member of the Russian Student Association, and she and the group wrote in a heartfelt statement to New Times that Maerowitz was a dedicated member of the club who held a close connection to his Russian heritage. Club members wrote that Maerowitz was an impressively intelligent person. He was also outgoing, they said, and was never afraid to approach anyone, introduce himself, and strike up a conversation. “We wish we had more time and opportunity to get to know him better,” club members wrote. “His presence and energy will be sorely missed, and we were lucky to have him as a member.” Maerowitz’s burial is scheduled for Oct. 13 in San Francisco, according to Cal Poly’s “In Memoriam” webpage, and an open memorial service is scheduled at the Jewish Community Center in Long Beach on Oct. 20. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273TALK. —Kasey Bubnash

Cunningham opposes potential funding cuts for widening Antelope Grade on Highway 46

Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-Templeton) is disappointed with Caltrans’ proposal to cut funding from highway widening projects through the state—specifically, the widening of Antelope Grade on Highway 46. “I’ve seen, in the three years I’ve been on this job, that we pay gas taxes and it is a constant fight to get some of that back. We have roads and highways that are state and locally maintained that our tax dollars go toward maintaining. It feeds the entire state,” Cunningham told New Times. In September, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order directing the state’s transportation department to push gas tax funding from road repairs to rail projects. At an Oct. 8 hearing, the California

VIEWER DISCRETION Transportation Commission (CTC) looked at projects funded by the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program that Caltrans proposed withdrawing money from, which included $15 million for Antelope Grade. However, the projects in question could get funding later on. Cunningham sent a letter to the CTC imploring that the commission maintain its commitment to the San Luis Obispo County region through any and all funding mechanisms. “Highway 46 supports the annual movement of $7 billion worth of goods shipments between the coastal and Central Valley regions,” the letter stated. “The highway is also critical to the $5 billion Central Coast tourism industry and thousands of jobs rely upon it.” Cunningham said the corridor connects Highway 101 to Interstate 5, a critical route for Southern and Northern California. Not only would modernizing the highway be beneficial for commuters and the economic vitality of the region, he said it’s a safety concern too. The Highway 41/46 corridor, nicknamed “Blood Alley,” has seen a fatality rate three times higher than the state average, Cunningham said. “When I go up to Sacramento for legislative session, I take that route myself, and you’re white-knuckling it when you’re driving through,” he said. “It’s not a pleasant road to drive on in the slightest.” In 2018, the CTC allocated a recordhigh $261 million for Central Coast freeway projects that included $134 million to build an interchange at the Cholame “Y.” Cunningham said that over the past two decades, the state has invested more than $400 million to upgrade and make the highway safer. “The Antelope Grade project is the golden spike in this process—the final segment to be widened. I see no reason for the state to cut itself short,” he said. Construction to widen the road was slated to begin 2022. Caltrans Public Affairs Chief Matt Rocco said he wants to be clear: None of the projects have been cut. He said that projects go through many phases, and right now, the Antelope Grade project is in the pre-construction phase. He said funding for pre-construction has the potential to be axed, for now. All the projects considered for defunding are eligible for money from the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program. “It’s on a five-year cycle and every twoyears we update it. So, next year, all three of those project phases will be eligible for funding from this fund,” Rocco said. The defunding proposal, he said, was being discussed before the governor’s executive order. The CTC will hold another hearing in Irvine on Oct. 15, and public comment will be accepted through Nov. 15. The commission is slated to receive a final proposal from Caltrans in November. —Karen Garcia

Newsom signs bill allowing Pismo to take over part of Highway 1 Pismo Beach is one step closer to taking ownership of a stretch of Highway 1 that runs through city limits, a move city officials say could allow Pismo more

control over its own traffic and road management. On Oct. 3, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 504, which allows Caltrans to relinquish its jurisdiction over a 2.5-mile stretch of Highway 1 running through Pismo city limits to the city of Pismo itself. The bill, which was authored by Sen. Bill Monning (D-Carmel) and Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo), will go into effect in January 2020. Although it’s still unclear whether the ownership transfer will actually happen, SB 504 makes it possible, according to Pismo Mayor Ed Waage. The city has been seriously considering taking Highway 1 for the last two years, a recourse that Waage said could make maintaining and changing the road more efficient. “We have a huge problem with traffic circulation,” Waage told New Times. Pismo’s traffic issues are most apparent during warm summer weekends, when Waage said tourists, locals, and Central Coast residents alike flood through the town to hit the beach. Cars pile up during the slow-moving search for parking and at a left turn from Ocean View Avenue onto Highway 1, backing up traffic all throughout the town and on freeway exits. City staff have discussed solutions to those problems in the past, Waage said, but making changes to Highway 1 currently would require Caltrans approval and funding. Taking ownership of the road would mean increased maintenance and construction bills for Pismo, but Waage said the costs could be worth having more control. “It gives us an opportunity to increase traffic flow,” he said. Still, the city hasn’t officially decided whether it wants Highway 1. City Manager Jim Lewis said city staff want to be sure that any customized road markings and traffic control strategies Pismo could implement would really work for the city. Caltrans is also planning to repair portions of Highway 1 in 2021, and Lewis said Pismo wants to wait until that’s finished before making any drastic changes. If city staff do decide to move forward with the ownership transfer, Lewis said Pismo would need to make a formal request to Caltrans, which would then submit the request to the California Transportation Commission for approval. “Again, we still have a good bit of analysis to do before we decide if this is the best option for us,” Lewis wrote in an email to New Times, “but it is good

by Jayson Mellom

to have the option if we deem it is in our community’s best interest.” —Kasey Bubnash

Housing Authority settles with investors, buys Brizzolara Apartments

The Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo (HASLO) recently settled its eminent domain case for the Brizzolara Apartments—a 30-unit affordable housing complex near downtown SLO— after its investor/owner agreed to sell the property to the local agency. HASLO and SunAmerica, the apartments’ prior owner, tussled over the apartments for more than two years, with HASLO filing for eminent domain in 2017 to force a sale amid concerns that SunAmerica intended to flip the units into market-rate housing. The two parties settled on a confidential sale price weeks before the case’s scheduled trial in November. With the ownership change, the apartments are guaranteed to serve seniors and adults with disabilities for decades to come, HASLO Executive Director Scott Smith said. “The property will remain permanently as affordable housing,” Smith told New Times. SunAmerica, an arm of insurance giant AIG, was the original investor in the Brizzolara Apartments when they were built in 1998. It received low-income housing tax credits in return and retained a 99 percent ownership interest in the property. HASLO managed the units. In 2015, SunAmerica bought out the property’s remaining loan debt, nearly doubled its interest rate, and put the longterm future affordability of the 30 units in doubt, according to HASLO. At that time, HASLO launched efforts to buy the site. Good faith negotiations between the parties fell apart in 2017 when HASLO offered $1.9 million for the property and SunAmerica countered with a $3.2 million offer. The final sales price negotiated out of court remains confidential, but Smith said that HASLO “is extremely pleased with the outcome.” “SunAmerica/AIG no longer has any ownership interest, involvement, or control of the property,” Smith said. “It is a good day for San Luis Obispo and seniors/disabled needing affordable housing.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

Nixing nicotine Arroyo Grande could be the first SLO County city to ban the sale of all e-cigarette and vaping products

V

apes and e-cigarettes in some form have been on the market for nearly a decade, but it wasn’t until about two years ago that Caren Ray Russom started finding them constantly in the hands of her high school students. Since then, it’s only become more common to catch students vaping or with vapes on campus, and within the last year alone, Russom said the situation has reached “epidemic proportions.” Russom is a history teacher at Santa Maria High School and the mother of two teenage boys, so when she started finding e-cigarettes at school, she asked her own kids about the trend. They confirmed her fears: “Everyone is doing it,” they told her. So for years Russom has felt passionately about putting up whatever barriers possible between kids and the electronic cigarettes they legally aren’t supposed to have. With the nation’s spotlight currently shining on several recently reported deaths and thousands of illnesses related to vaping products, she hopes her fellow community members are ready to do the same. As the mayor of Arroyo Grande, Russom is pushing

for her city to be the first in San Luis Obispo County—and one of the first in the nation—to ban the sale of e-cigarettes and vaping products entirely. “As mayor, a high school teacher, and the mom of two teenage boys, I’m on the front lines of this in every facet of my world,” Russom told New Times. “This is a desperate public safety issue, and I cannot sit back, being in a position of power, and not do anything.” At a meeting on Sept. 24, Arroyo Grande City Council gave the go-ahead to Russom’s request to initiate a city staff analysis into a potential ban on the sale of vaping products and electronic cigarettes within city limits. A public hearing on the matter will likely be held at the City Council’s Oct. 22 meeting. The number of U.S. high school students who reported e-cigarette use increased by 78 percent between 2017 and 2018, according to the 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey. Numbers among middle schoolers rose by 48 percent. While cities, counties, and some states across the country have moved to ban the

fruit- and candy-flavored juices that are often blamed for the prevalence of vaping among teens, few jurisdictions have gone forward with all-out bans on the products, often out of fear of legal challenges. In the last few months, hundreds of hospitalizations associated with e-cigarettes and vaping products have come to light. As of Oct. 1, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had recorded more than 1,000 “lung injury cases” associated with e-cigarettes and vaping, and 18 deaths. Nearly 70 percent of those patients are men, and nearly 16 percent are younger than 18 years old. The CDC says no single product or substance has been linked to every case. A single cause is still unknown. SLO County Tobacco Control Program staff have long pushed for local bans on flavored nicotine products, according to program manager Inger Appanaitis, but they’re beginning to take a more drastic stance. “Now that people are dying—young adults and children are dying from these products—the total ban on all e-cigarette products seems to make more sense,” Appanaitis said. In June, San Francisco became the first city in the U.S. to pass an all-out ban on the sale of e-cig products, and Appanaitis said Livermore is the only California city she knows of that has followed suit. Others are trying or considering it, though, she said, and most

of those jurisdictions are modeling their bans on San Francisco’s, which ties the ban to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. None of the e-cigarette and vaping products currently on shelves have been approved by the FDA, Appanaitis said, and that makes it almost impossible for consumers to know what’s really in the products they’re using. Banning the sale and delivery of those that haven’t received FDA approval effectively bans all existing e-cigarettes and vaping products from city limits. It’s a smart strategy, according to Appanaitis. If Arroyo Grande were to do the same, Appanaitis said it would be “a significant barrier” to those hoping to get their hands on the products. San Francisco has faced legal challenges—e-cigarette company Juul spent nearly $18.6 million campaigning to get a measure that would overturn the city’s ban on vaping products onto its next election ballot—but Appanaitis said huge manufacturers like Juul aren’t likely to focus on SLO County’s small cities. Arroyo Grande is still in its early stages of planning for the potential ban, but Appanaitis said she hopes other cities push for similar regulations. “Local bans are really effective,” Appanaitis said. ∆

that’s working to clean up and revitalize the San Lorenzo River in Santa Cruz. According to statistics provided by Laura Feinstein, a senior researcher with Pacific Institute, transient camps are the seventh leading cause of fecal contamination in water bodies. The top cause is “unknown,” followed by urban stormwater and then agriculture and livestock. “This is a fairly unsettled question,” Feinstein said. “We don’t know what portion we can really say is caused by [homelessness].” Officials also discussed the trash, habitat disturbances, and brush fires that are common in the natural areas where unsheltered homeless live. Robertson noted the dozens of fires that started inside the Salinas Riverbed near Paso Robles this past year. “Wildfires are a human health threat, and there’s little we can do to a watershed that’s more destructive to water quality than wildfires,” Robertson said. “Deforestation is occurring in these areas. The canopy is being destroyed. Bank erosion and excavation is occurring, causing sedimentation and further loss of habitat. … These are significant threats.” Panelists touched on how a lack of access to clean water, sanitation, and, ultimately, housing for individuals in homelessness compounds the issues. Though state law enshrines clean water and sanitation as fundamental human rights, reality doesn’t necessarily deliver. According to Feinstein, in 2015 more than 200,000 Americans lacked adequate access to toilets and/or hot and cold water. More than half of those people were homeless.

“Accessible water and accessible sanitation—that’s where people experiencing homelessness often face barriers,” Feinstein said. “The science is very clear and well-established that not having running water, safe drinking water, [and] a toilet affects people’s health.” The public restrooms and hygienic facilities that exist, Feinstein said, are often out of reach to the homeless, and they close at night. “The problem is they’re often very far from where people actually live. … They’re often dangerous to visit. They’re often poorly maintained and cleaned,” Feinstein said. State and regional water board officials at the workshop acknowledged that the availability of these amenities has to improve. “In 2017, this water board adopted a ‘human right to water’ resolution. We take this very seriously,” Robertson said. When discussing big-picture solutions to the challenges of homelessness and water, panelists frequently pointed to the simple need for more housing and more funding to serve the nearly 130,000 people in California who face homelessness, according to 2018 counts. “Most people do not want to continue living by the river, but we are challenged in providing a range of services and housing,” said Lahela Mattox, of the California Homeless Coordinating and Financing Council. “At the end of the day, we’re talking about human beings. We’re talking about your neighbors, your children. … We are responsible.” ∆

Ripple effects Water board workshop examines the homelessness crisis’ relationship to water

T

ypical discussions about homelessness tend to focus on its most obvious problem, a lack of shelter. What often gets left out, though, are the tangential issues that arise from the crisis. On Oct. 3, the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board set out to examine one such issue: the ways in which homelessness and water quality intersect. “This is a high priority for us as an agency,” said John Robertson, executive director of the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. “California has far and away the largest population of homelessness. ... The complexity of the problems [is] becoming greater.” In a daylong workshop—Challenges and Solutions: The Intersection of Water Quality and People Experiencing Homelessness on the Central Coast (available to video stream at slo-span.org)—designed to suss out those concerns and talk about potential solutions, more than a dozen leaders in the field from across the state convened in San Luis Obispo to participate in a series of panel discussions. Panelists included political figures like San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and scientists with environmental nonprofits like the Pacific Institute and the Coastal Watershed Council. “We are shifting our perspective,” Robertson explained about the purpose of the workshop, “from this traditional

regulatory relationship with municipalities, to try to facilitate a much broader dialogue and an exchange of ideas.” Water regulators, environmental protection groups, and homeless advocates say they’re increasingly concerned about how California’s homelessness epidemic is impacting both environmental and public health. Officials worry about how the growing presence of homeless camps along riverbeds has polluted waterways and habitats. Robertson said his agency has found human sources of fecal bacteria in five major Central Coast watersheds—the Morro Bay watershed, Watsonville Slough, Arroyo Burro, Rincon Creek, and San Lorenzo River. More broadly, about 40 percent of all California’s surface water is impaired by fecal bacteria, according to data presented at the workshop. But pinning down the sources of fecal contamination is difficult. In-depth testing is required to determine if the bacteria originated from humans or another animal. If human-caused, it’s sometimes impossible to conclude with certainty whether it’s open defecation at a homeless camp, a septic failure, or something else. “Teasing out the exact source of that human bacteria is really, really difficult,” said Whitney Reynier, a river scientist for the Coastal Watershed Council, a nonprofit

Aside from earning lost credits, Grizzly Youth Academy arms its cadets with life skills BY KAREN GARCIA

Editor’s note: New Times is following eight Grizzly Youth Academy students through their journey at the military-style school down a new path toward academic and personal success. This is the second installment in the series—split in two parts, with four cadets this week and four next week. The first installment, “Pushing for Better,” was published Aug. 22.

I

t’s just past 10 a.m. on Sept. 19 at Camp Roberts, home of the California National Guard and the Grizzly Youth Academy, and the sun is already beating down on the pavement. Paul Piette, the academy’s Grizzly Challenge Charter School principal, is showing New Times around the “wagon wheel.” The wagon wheel is a group of classroom buildings arranged in the shape of a circle. The platoons march to the middle of the wagon wheel, and line-by-line the cadets are dismissed to their respective classrooms. At this time, one or two cadets run inside the wheel from one room to another. Cadets must run in a clockwise direction, similar to a wheel in motion, to get to their classroom or to take a bathroom break. It’s part of the structure they’re taught through the program—the cadets told New Times that running to their destination isn’t their favorite thing to do. In their life before Grizzly, for some school wasn’t their favorite thing to participate in every day either, but that sentiment has since changed. In order to qualify for the Grizzly Challenge Charter School, a prospective cadet must be at risk of dropping out of high school or have already dropped out, according to their credit deficiency and truancy. Their academic standing is an indicator, Piette said, of what’s really going on in their life. Their academic standing could be a symptom of family issues, such as divorce, death or loss, or substance

abuse—either in a family member or in the cadet; family or neighborhood dysfunction, such as abuse or neglect; social economic issues of poverty; or gang issues. Ultimately, through circumstances outside of their hands or circumstances they’ve created, Piette said, the cadets have developed a set of habits, behaviors, and beliefs that at one time perhaps helped them cope with their life. Those behaviors, he said, have now put them at risk and on a limiting path. “They come to us with lots of challenges, and we’re here to work with every single issue that they might have; we really don’t have a limit to that. We’re happy and willing to address anything that can affect their habits and their beliefs about themselves in the world, so they can be successful outside of here,” he said. Through the Grizzly Youth Academy, a partnership between the California Military Department and the

GROWING TOGETHER Luis and Nidia Valenzuela feel that going through the program together adds another element of support. 10 • New Times • October 10 - October 17, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

Grizzly Challenge Charter School—through the SLO County Office of Education—cadets not only catch up on missing credits, but the classroom is designed to focus on curriculum that’s relatable to them and can be useful in their futures. When New Times first interviewed the cadets of class No. 43 in August, the group consisted of nine kids who would be followed through the program. For this round of interviews, the number has dropped to eight. The cadets share how they view themselves changing and the difference in their educational experience.

Luis and Nidia Valenzuela

Nidia Valenzuela, 16, said that when her family came to visit for Family Day, her mom couldn’t stop crying. Her brother Luis, 18, who is also attending the Grizzly Youth Academy, said they were tears of joy for the both of them. “She probably thought I wasn’t going to think about changing my life or change at all. So I definitely think they were happy tears. It makes me feel good that I made her proud and that I’m actually doing something,” Luis said. Nidia said she has a slightly different feeling about the expectations their mom had for her. With four older brothers, she’s the only female in their immediate family. “I feel like I have a little bit of pressure to do well, but I know it’s because she wants the best for me,” Nidia said. Family Day was a reminder for Nidia to continue working toward a better life—and it helps that her brother is at Grizzly with her. The male and female platoons are kept separate, so the Valenzuela siblings don’t get to talk to each other. Instead, the two keep in touch by writing letters. The content of the letter can only be on one side of the paper, so Nidia said she writes really small to fit as much as she can on a sheet. But her greatest sense of comfort comes when she sees her brother during the day. They exchange a look every time their platoons line up in formation at the wagon wheel. She said they make eye contact and slightly move their heads in acknowledgement—something they shouldn’t really be doing; they’re supposed to just look forward. “I don’t know, I just can’t help it,” Nidia said with a laugh. “But when I see him, I just feel like I have more support here.” She’s also found a sense of support in run group. As part of this group, she’s run 5 miles, and at the time of the interview, she was gearing up for a 10K. “It’s been tough because during a run I keep thinking,


‘I don’t want to do this,’ or ‘I’m going to quit.’ But after I finish, it’s great, because every time I feel like I’ve accomplished something,” Nidia said. Before Grizzly, Nidia was smoking weed, which made it hard to run track, so she stopped running altogether. Now she’s found that her breathing has gone back to normal, and she doesn’t feel like she gets out of breath as quickly as she once did. During this second interview, Nidia was a little less shy and smiled a lot more when she talked about her accomplishments. Her brother did too. Luis felt that he changed too; his attitude toward adults is different. He didn’t really like listening to what adults had to say because he felt they didn’t know what they were talking about. “I see now that there are adults here who are trying to help me and help me change. But it’s the little things they do that makes me think this way now,” he said. Those little things include the positive energy that all the teachers, counselors, and cadres—an officer that’s responsible for training the rest of the unit—have toward him and the other cadets. Luis said they’re making the first move and reaching out to him to see if he needs help in any way. It makes it a lot easier, he said, to feel comfortable not only asking for help, but listening to what they have to say. In terms of his academics, Luis said he’ll be able to make up most of his missing school credits, and the rest

he’ll finish at a continuation school back home—but he won’t have to spend too much time there. “I’m pretty sure I’m going to get a job while I finish school. Mostly because I know I’ll just feel better if I have a job and keep busy instead of having a lot of free time that could potentially lead to me falling back into old habits,” Luis said.

Stephanie Recio-Soltero

Family Day was an emotional day for 18-year-old Stephanie Recio-Soltero because she was able to hold her 10-month-old daughter again. Recio-Soltero described the day as a dream from the minute she ran up to her family to the moment she parted with them at the end of the event. The one thing that stuck with her was how her daughter reacted to her after nearly two months of separation. “I grabbed her and hugged her, but I noticed she was making a pouting face. She wanted to go back with the people that are taking care of her right now, my mom and my tia [tia means aunt in Spanish],” she said. It hurt, Recio-Soltero said, because she felt like maybe her daughter was feeling abandoned because she had

come to the academy. “I just held her the whole time though; I didn’t care. It was good to see her,” she said. Having to leave her daughter behind has made Recio-Soltero think about how to continue her education without leaving her daughter again. Through the Grizzly Charter Challenge School, she’ll be earning her high school diploma, so post Grizzly she plans to attend a community college. This way she can balance raising her daughter and receiving higher education in order to get a job. This aspect of her future is one of the things she talks about with her counselor, who has been very helpful. SUPPORT SYSTEM The Grizzly Challenge Charter School principal Paul Piette said “She’s very easy to talk to, and she listens to what I have the relationships that each teacher, administrator, cadre, or counselor establishes with to say. I’m really close to her,” each cadet forms a support system. Recio-Soltero said. the flag that signifies her unit designation.

I’m always, well not always, but she’s a guidon for her platoon, which means she holds I always finish my class work first. After that I can do extra credit,” Cerna said. Before Grizzly, Cerna sat in the back of her classroom, not giving the teacher or lessons much attention. She also didn’t do the assignments. She said she feels differently about the classroom setting now. “I think it’s because here, they don’t let you fall behind. If you try to give up or say things like, ‘I don’t get this,’ [the teachers] don’t let you give up,” Cerna said. Instead, her teachers help her and her classmates pinpoint what they need help with. “If I feel like I’m falling behind, if I don’t get it, or if I get frustrated, they take me aside and help me,” she said. It’s something Cerna isn’t used to, but she said she appreciates it. Once she completes the Academy, she’ll only have 20 credits left to make up; she’ll have to decide whether she wants to do that through independent study or by going back to her high school. “I don’t know what I want to do because I’m missing my senior year, but at the same time I kind of have a feeling that if I go back to that school I might go back to my old ways,” Cerna said. After completing her senior year, Cerna’s next big decision is whether to continue living with her grandmother in Greenfield, California, or to move to Hemet with her aunt—a phlebotomist. Either way, one thing is certain, she’s determined to go to college to continue her education wherever she is. When New Times first met Cerna, she contemplated following the footsteps of her aunt, but she said that her new appreciation for Algebra has motivated her to consider becoming an Algebra teacher. She’s not worried though; she said she feels like she has the time and, now, the tools to figure out her career goals. ∆ GOING FORWARD TOGETHER Dezarey Cerna feels like she’s accomplishing more in school because the teachers at the charter school don’t let anyone fall behind; they’re always ready to help.

This story will continue next week with the remaining four cadets, so be on the lookout for New Times’ next issue. Reach Staff Writer Karen Garcia at kgarcia@ newtimesslo.com.

Age of the tiny house

T

his year, San Luis Obispo became the second city in California, after Fresno, to allow tiny houses in residential backyards. That’s right, folks, the tiny-house movement is sweeping through SLO Town— and advocates say its arrival holds promise as a new solution to the housing crisis. “We all know the housing shortage and [affordability] challenge is extreme here,” said Celeste Goyer, operations director for SmartShare Housing Solutions, an organization helping local residents resolve their housing challenges. “We need as many solutions as we can find.” To help introduce residents to tiny houses—and educate them on what it takes to make them a reality—the nonprofit is holding a Tiny Footprint Expo, Oct. 11 to 13, at Madonna Meadows. The expo will showcase tiny homes to tour, and has a full slate of scheduled workshops and presentations from tiny-home builders, sustainable living advocates, affordable housing experts, city officials, and others. “We knew education was going to be required so the community could understand what exactly was being allowed. We thought it was important to step into this role,” Goyer said about organizing the expo. “It’s a chance to listen to talks and panel discussions on all the areas that people need information about—

everything from the permit process, to what is a qualifying backyard, to how can you downsize into living in one.” The expo kicks off with a VIP event on Friday, Oct. 11, featuring keynote speaker Eli Spevak, a leader in the city of Portland’s affordable housing community ($75 per ticket, good for all three days). The events continue on Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. ($8 per weekend day; tickets available beforehand at homeshareslo.org/ tiny-footprint-expo; $5 for parking). Goyer said she’s expecting at least a few thousand attendees for the inaugural event. “Interest is very high, I think partially because of the housing pressure that we have,” she said. Organizers hope the expo will debunk some common misperceptions about tiny homes—that they’re cramped and unlivable, poorly built, and poorly insulated. Before putting the event together, the nonprofit leaders took a trip to Fresno to see some houses up close. “They’re solidly built, well constructed [homes] that just happened to be on trailers instead of foundations,” Goyer said. “They were beautiful, light and bright, more spacious than we imagined, just totally livable.” Since SLO city legalized tiny homes earlier this year, it’s permitted two—one on Mill Street close to downtown and

Purchasing a tiny home is significantly less expensive than buying a house with land in SLO, advocates note. They can cost between $40,000 and $70,000, and the next step is connecting with a willing property owner to host it (and charge rent for the backyard space).

Opinion

Letters [16] Sound off [16] Rhetoric & Reason [18] Shredder [19]

Commentary

BY THE SLO CANNABIS WATCH GROUP

In need of change Mr. Peschong continues to plague his constituents with next-door cannabis

W

e expected 1st District San Luis Obispo County Supervisor John Peschong to disavow himself of his assertion that he “owned” SLO County’s cannabis ordinance. Instead, Mr. Peschong further entrenched himself and stated at the Sept. 19 Templeton Area Advisory Group (TAAG) meeting, “For me, it’s a property rights question ... . Everybody has the rights on their property, but your property rights end at your property line and somebody else’s property rights start.” The Paso Robles Press further elaborated, “Peschong told the crowd that light, smell, and sound nuisances are driving the neighbor-to-neighbor conflict in the community, also noting there is an overall concern for water use.” Two key takeaways are that Peschong is espousing misleading notions of property rights and that he unduly characterizes the next-door cannabis problem as a “neighbor-to-neighbor conflict.” Mr. Peschong clearly does not distinguish cause from effect. He blames his constituents for their seeming inability to get along with proposed cannabis producers next door. We remind readers of last Spring’s York Mountain cannabis appeal hearing in which Mr. Peschong dismissed and trivialized his constituents’ objections to the proposed cannabis farm. Instead, he conveniently chalked up the controversy to a neighborto-neighbor conflict. The truth is plain and simple. Mr. Peschong simply has not admitted that the failures of SLO County’s cannabis ordinance are rooted in the specifics

HODIN

of how it permits industrial emissions next to homes and business, introduces unmitigated security risks to neighbors, fails to preserve neighborhood character, and offers no enforcement assurances. Instead, he trivializes the conflict as a mere homegrown neighbor conflict, a strange tactic given how many of the proposed grows originate from out-of-state corporations and shell companies using local grow sites as a “home address.” Regarding Mr. Peschong’s property rights comment above: This type of jade’s trick is understandable but squashes any substantive discussion of the issues. If everyone’s property rights ended at their property line, why on earth would SLO’s cannabis ordinance include a 300-foot setback between the cannabis and the neighboring property? It would appear the ordinance has stripped the cannabis grower’s property rights within his or her property line. Off topic, perhaps someone in county planning can substantiate how it arrived at a 300-foot setback requirement when cannabis odors can drift? Many residents we have spoken with in SLO and Santa Barbara counties report smelling this stuff from several thousand feet away. For reasons of compatibility, a swine farm is the closest comparison we have to a marijuana or hemp farm. SLO County appropriately restricts hog ranches in its Hog Ranch Ordinance. “The raising or keeping of more than three sows, a boar, and their unweaned litter is subject to the same standards that are required of beef and dairy feedlots,” the ordinance states. “A hog

Russell Hodin

ranch shall be located no closer than 1 mile from any residential category; and no closer than 1,000 feet from any school, or dwelling other than those on the site.” Clearly, our residents’ homes are treated as sensitive receptors in the hog farm ordinance, so why would Mr. Peschong or anyone in county planning turn a blind eye to residents when dealing with something so similar? Even the SLO County Planning Commission last May issued a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors to protect residences as sensitive receptors. No action resulted. In fact, a delegate at the Sept. 19 TAAG meeting even asked Mr. Peschong for his opinion on outdoor grows. His response: “location.” If Mr. Peschong’s opinion on outdoor cannabis growing is locationdependent, then it makes even less sense why he fails to unequivocally deny outdoor grows near homes. Any property rights inconveniences Mr. Peschong and others levied on industrial pot farmers pale in comparison to the diminished rights of others in the neighborhood. If readers are curious what “property rights up to the property line” looks like with cannabis, look no farther than Santa Barbara County. Residents, vineyards, and wineries are facing a regional catastrophe thanks to a couple of cannabisenamored supervisors placing virtually no constraints on cannabis producers. Mr. Peschong, along with Supervisors Debbie Arnold and Lynn Compton, are the ones to make this right because Supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson clearly will not. Why else do residents and traditional agriculture need protections? Cannabis producers here will no doubt attempt to both increase the number of permits allowed in the county (currently at 141) and the size of each. In fact, this past June, they scored a boost in their allowed acreage by whining that the initial 3-acre limit didn’t

allow them enough “walkway space.” Now they get 3.75 acres. What’s next? This gets us to the heart of the situation, namely that cannabis cultivation is fundamentally and innately incompatible with homes and businesses in rural, agricultural areas. Napa County supervisors came to this conclusion in September, with one supervisor even stating, “There is no place in the state of California where we can point to a county ordinance that works.” Clearly, Napa administrators evaluated, understood, and took prudent action against the threats cannabis cultivation posed to residents, wine businesses, and Napa’s overall brand. Supervisor Peschong needs to understand that the impacts of this cannabis ordinance constitute a serious threat to his constituents, and the chorus is getting louder. District 1 will be watching how he votes and decides on cannabis projects and any proactive actions he takes on cannabis issues between now and March 2020. We cannot understate that he must implement the following immediately: 1. Do not approve even one more pot farm next to homes or businesses. 2. Immediately introduce a motion in the Board of Supervisors to implement a moratorium on the issuance of all cannabis/hemp permits. Follow Napa’s lead because they got it right. Any changes to the ordinance must only be addressed during this moratorium, and only with extensive public review, insight, and input. ∆ The SLO Cannabis Watch Group invites you to write your SLO County supervisor if you want the cannabis ordinance changed. New Times invites you to write a letter to the editor if you are miffed by this opinion piece—or if you agree with it. We’d love to publish it. Send your thoughts to letters@ newtimesslo.com.

Opinion Feds push oil

Federal lands on the Central Coast will soon be up for lease to oil companies for dangerous drilling and extraction processes. As our counties strive to reduce the water, land, and air impacts of extreme oil drilling in county-controlled areas, the feds rush to push drilling on our federal lands. Federal agencies are greasing the regulatory skids to cram big new oil development down our throats. Soon the Federal Bureau of Land Management will approve hastily prepared environmental impact statements, allowing oil drilling and fracking at Montaña de Oro State Park, Morro Rock, and parcels near the Carrizo Plain, Lake Nacimiento, and Camp Roberts. A U.S. Geological Survey report, published in September’s Environmental Geosciences, confirms the polluting impacts on Central Coast groundwater aquifers from cyclic steam injection, waste water injection, and other highintensity oil extraction processes. Elections are coming. Ask your local and federal elected leaders how they’ll stop this impending rape of our water, land, air, and climate. Our kids strive to protect our climate by urging us to slash fossil fuel use. What do we tell them in 20 years as they struggle to cope with a burning planet? Larry Bishop Buellton

the political and the economic climate I moved here for. The county has turned blue in a progressive way and is thus ruining the economic climate by setting in motion the closure of Diablo Canyon Power Plant, shrinking the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area, and now saying goodbye to natural gas. As for the weather, I am still able to grow citrus year around, which was my primary desire. Because of the climate, cannabis is now invading everywhere, which makes the weather a negative to those who do not want to smell it or hear the high decibel hum of fans blowing nonstop. Decision makers no longer represent the people but a pre-determined agenda that props up and funds compliant candidates, thus not representing citizens but special interests like cannabis. We need to change that and elect two new fantastic, real candidates in March 2020: Stacy Korsgaden for 3rd District supervisor and Andy Caldwell for Congress. They will bring common sense back into governance so I can remain here. Laura Mourdant San Luis Obispo

State Parks isn’t cooperating

State Parks has no intention of solving the public health, environmental injustice, and habitat conservation problems it causes on the Mesa, in Oceano, and on the dunes. Here are the latest two instances illustrating State Parks’ defiance of both our county’s and the California Coastal Commission’s authority. A public workshop by the Air Pollution Control District (APCD) on the abatement order scheduled for Oct. 1 at the South County Regional Center was canceled because State Parks failed to submit the required work plan. Fortunately, the APCD board directed the APCD officer to summon the hearing board to review State Parks’ efforts (or non-efforts) to meet the requirements of the order. Hopefully, the hearing board will take action. Furthermore, the devices meant to collect the sand at the Pier Avenue exit to mitigate for the 45.2 tons of sand that vehicles exiting the park carry onto public streets were supposed to be installed in June 2019. Instead, parks installed two temporary track-out mats. Now, the estimated date for installation of the permanent structures is 2021. State Parks sweeps Grand and Pier avenues five times per week; a private firm sweeps Pier Avenue two days a week; the county sweeps once a week. All that sand should remain on the beach, where driving should be prohibited. State Parks’ continuing unwillingness to obey the law is unacceptable. SLO County and the Coastal Commission have tolerated and fostered Parks’ noncompliance for too long. Lucia Caslinuovo Oceano

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AL FONZI

The real existential threat

M

any local communities have already signed up for the Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) community choice energy program to obtain their electrical power. The holdouts are the city of Atascadero by a 3-2 vote by the City Council and the SLO County Board of Supervisors. Last week, the Board of Supervisors decided to undertake another feasibility study even though it’s already spent considerable funds studying the issue. The county vote was 4-1 to delay adoption until another study is completed. Supervisor Debbie Arnold was the lone opposition vote, stating that spending another $80,000 is a waste of county money since independent studies have already been conducted. The accountant-prepared report advised against adopting the MBCP program due to unknown financial liabilities the county might incur. The county would own a percentage of the financial liabilities incurred while it participates in the program. Leaving MBCP would require obtaining permission from the MBCP board, which common sense dictates might be difficult. Permitting entities such as cities and counties to leave the program would increase the share of financial obligations incurred by the remaining participants, so the incentive would be to deny permission to leave. MBCP is being touted as the way to obtain large supplies of “clean, alternative

energy” to fight climate change. Local climate activists have taken up this mantle, lobbying local governments to get aboard without delay. Holdouts are under considerable political pressure to join. The holdouts are portrayed as either courageous, well-informed representatives or political ideologues, beholden to nefarious forces. I would hope their reluctance is based upon being wellinformed as the MBCP program has significant hazards for its participants. The financial liabilities assumed should give anyone pause. However, some who’ve bought into the program now have “buyers remorse.” One caller I received on the “Sound-Off” KPRL radio talk program the first week of October stated that her electric bill had a $93 charge in addition to her PG&E bill. Other emails received indicated that power bills went up hundreds of dollars a month, which occurs when the promised rebates disappear, a result of increasing the percentage of power received via more expensive alternative energy. The MBCP does not generate power. It acts as a middleman broker, buying power from out of state, which includes energy sources produced via not only approved renewable sources but also mass-hydro. MBCP will “certify” its sources but once in transmission lines, one electron is unidentifiable from another—whether it’s from renewable, coal, natural gas, or nuclear sources.

All of this is part of a larger effort to “fight climate change,” which is portrayed as an existential threat to the survival of the planet. I think not. We do face existential threats in the 21st century, foremost of which is the proliferation of nuclear weapons and delivery systems among rising global and regional powers, some with rising nationalism (China) and others with apocalyptic ideologies that require a confrontation with the West (Iran). Russia has completed a massive modernization of its nuclear arsenal, and North Korea, Pakistan, and India are engaged in face-offs that portend regional nuclear wars with potential catastrophic consequences. Their economies and status as world powers depend upon massive use of fossil fuels, nuclear energy, and hydro-power. Frankly, they couldn’t care less about the climate-induced neurosis of Western environmentalists. Our electric power grid is extremely vulnerable to cyber-attack as is our financial system. Minor nuclear powers will soon be capable of launching an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack by firing a small number of nuclear weapons and detonating them at high altitudes over North America. Every electronic device, from car ignitions to all communications would be destroyed. Our high-tech society would crash in a nanosecond, and we would instantly be thrust into a 19th century mode of life. Mass migrations of people are increasing

the likelihood of the return of plagues not seen in hundreds of years. These migrations are not a result of climate change but bad government, almost always socialist and corrupt leading to mass unemployment, food shortages, starvation (Venezuela), and the collapse of virtually every social institution. This week, China unveiled its massive build-up of nuclear weapons, displaying road-mobile intercontinental missiles, carrier-killers, and hypersonic missiles capable of defeating any anti-missile system we have. Their road-mobile missiles are housed in 3,000 miles of underground tunnels; we don’t know how many missiles China has, as they aren’t a signatory to any arms control agreement. China’s military officers are extremely nationalistic and belligerent toward America. Naval confrontations frequently occur, each one more dangerous than before. The chance of an outbreak of war between China and America in the western Pacific is increasingly likely within the next decade. By contrast, climate change is a natural process occurring over a century, allowing us to use our technology to adapt as needed. Rising nuclear threats are immediate, threatening our survival over the next decade as belligerent nations replace America as the pre-imminent world power. ∆ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

The Shredder

Dark days A

nybody have a lawnmower, hedge trimmer, or lopping shears PG&E could borrow? The company’s really behind on its yard work! If you’re one of the 800,000 Californians being left in the dark as PG&E cuts power during its Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS), here’s why: PG&E is looking down the barrel of about $20 billion in liabilities because of fire damage caused by its equipment. Hey everybody! Check your La-Z-Boy rockers for loose change! PG&E needs your help! The utility is supposed to manage future danger by cutting back trees and other potential fire hazards from its power lines, but oh geez, sorry, they’re a little behind on this maintenance— what with dealing with closing Diablo Canyon Power Plant, declaring bankruptcy, and cutting off your power—so instead of doing their job and keeping your lights on, they’re going to, you know … not. What we’re experiencing is what the state government euphemistically calls “de-energization,” and the California Public Utilities Code makes these shut-offs legal. All three of California’s “investor-owned electric utilities”—Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E)—used to be pretty

good places to invest your extra bucks … until increased fire danger from that pesky “fake,” “hoax,” “scam” thing called global climate change showed up due in large part to burning fossil fuels: You know, the very thing PG&E, SoCal Edison, and SDG&E do to generate energy so we can air condition our McMansions and heat our pools … um, except only rich public utility investors have McMansions and pools. Most of us are just trying to keep our electric bills paid, find the cheapest tacos, and get our kids to school. Seeing what’s happening to PG&E and its investors is sort of like watching a slow-motion circular firing squad … from inside the center of the circle. In case you’re not following along at home, PG&E, which had been raking in profits for its shareholders for decades, is now desperately trying to survive to overcharge you another day. It can’t afford to be liable for more fire damage, so for now it’s going to flip the “off” switch. Hey, maybe you should invest in a gaspowered generator to run your grandma’s respirator, charge gramps’ electric wheelchair, or charge your cellphone in case of an emergency.

Times like this make me think that maybe, just maybe, things like public utilities ought to really be public, as in owned by the people and managed by the government. If your retort is that the government can’t do anything right, and that the private sector is so much more efficient and better than the big old dumb government, may I draw your attention to our current predicament? PG&E hasn’t exactly done a bang-up job keeping California powered-up and safe. In fact, it can’t even get a simple press release right. PG&E sent out a statewide notice that said northern Santa Barbara County would be impacted by the current PSPS, except nope, that was just plain wrong. Maybe we should put the Postal Service in charge. For just 55 cents, they managed to deliver my sternly worded letter to PG&E from my hovel in SLO to their ritzy corporate office in San Francisco in one day. Just sayin’! Speaking of fires, water quality, and public safety, aside from PG&E and global climate change, it’s all the homeless’ fault. Salinas Riverbed fire? Homeless encampment! Human fecal matter in Central Coast watersheds? Homeless poopers! Illegal camping? Homeless lazeabouts! Hmm. I wonder if there’s a way to curb these problems? More public restrooms open 24/7? More beds in homeless shelters? Areas opened to homeless camping and actually designed to deal with the impact? I know, I know! That’s crazy talk!

In the meantime, I saw four camping tents scattered around Laguna Lake Park this morning and a pile of human excrement near the dumpster located next to one of two public restrooms that are locked up at night. Used to be the cops would be all over RVs camped around the city and Laguna Lake Park, but now I see such campers all the time. Human poop and pee (yes, I’m 5 years old, OK) is also showing up pretty regularly in the entryway stairwells of the New Times’ office—which is downtown, just ask Downtown SLO’s Bettina Swigger, she knows. I’m not sure who the culprit is, but there aren’t any public restrooms near this side of downtown and that person definitely stinks it up overnight—our staffers can smell it as they walk into work. I don’t know if homelessness is getting worse or if the homeless simply no longer try to hide. Maybe it’s better to see them, to see our fellow humans with no place to go, no other option but to sleep in their car if they’re lucky enough to have one, to pitch a tent in a city park, to curl up with a blanket under a tree. Winter is coming, which hopefully means rain, which means danger for homeless encampments in creeks and riverbeds, under overpasses, and in drainage culverts. What are we going to do about it? ∆ The Shredder is the light of the world ... ha-ha-ha! Send ideas and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

Vicky’s work is grounded in nature and is an exploration of its gritty side. She strips away all that is extraneous until the only things remaining are shapes and colors. Weaving together the intricacies of the natural world with an abstract environment, she creates new and unique surroundings.

After thirty years in the classroom, I have retired from teaching and returned to studio life. My current work is functional stoneware pottery. The pleasure I get from doing this work is enormous. I look forward to sharing it with you.

NOT RON SWANSON Actor, comedian, and musician Nick Offerman performs his standup at Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Oct. 12.

Mr. Sensitive

Nick Offerman reveals his softer side

I

’ve got actor, comedian, and manly-man woodworker Nick Offerman on the phone, and after our “good mornings,” I say, “I hear you were just on NPR.” “Um, yeah, that’s the rumor. If I make the cut. We’ll see,” he responds in that laconic, distinctive voice. “Well, this interview will be a lot less professional, prepared, and good,” I say. “Sounds like you’re my people,” he deadpans without missing a beat. It turns out I am his people. We both grew up in the Midwest and were raised by hearty Christian stock. His stolid persona has been his hallmark. Is it carefully cultivated or just his personality? “Ha-huh-ha! Well, I guess I’m not aware of having cultivated my personality at any point, so I guess this was just the hand of cards I was dealt,” he said. “I’ve always tried to emulate my dad in a lot of ways. He gets along well with everybody. People seem to like it when he shows up. So I just try to mind my manners and, ah, and behave like him.” Offerman was dealt a pretty good hand. He gained success in Chicago, where he worked with famed theater companies Goodman, Wisdom Bridge, and Steppenwolf—the latter of which he not only acted for but also staged fight choreography and worked as their master carpenter. He soon was doing TV shows such as Will & Grace (in 2003, he married the show’s co-star, Megan Mullally), The King of Queens, 24, and The West Wing. Of course, he’s best known for his awardwinning role as Ron Swanson on the NBC sitcom, Parks and Recreation. Film-wise, this year he’s appeared in Lucy in the Sky and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. Recently, he was in Bad Times at the El Royale (2018), Hearts Beat Loud (2018), Ice Age: Collision Course (2016), Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

(2015), 22 Jump Street (2014), and many more. He started his film career with small parts in movies such as Going All the Way (1997), Speaking of Sex (2001), and a film close to SLO County’s heart, Murder by Numbers (2002), which was filmed locally. Offerman played “Cop at Richard’s House.” “The incredibly fascinating backstory— this may be the first time it’s getting out—I was offered a different role that I think was called ‘Weed Cop’ in that movie, and instead of one line I think it was five lines, and I was over the moon because I would get to speak five lines about marijuana to Sandra Bullock,” Offerman remembered. “Turned out the schedule was when my wife and I had our first ever romantic trip to Paris planned. I couldn’t believe it. I had to call up and say, ‘I can’t play Weed Cop because I want to stay married.’ So they gave me that other part instead because the director liked me.” This Saturday, Oct. 12, Offerman will be doing his social commentary stand-up, with some country ballads he’s written mixed in, at Vina Robles Amphitheatre (8 p.m.; all ages; $41.75 to $61.75 at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). “The first song is called ‘We Fucked it Up,’” Offerman said as he tried to describe his show. “It’s sort of an overview. We’ve come so far as a species, and for some reason we’ve apparently decided to turn around and head back the other way. There’s a song called ‘I’m No Scientist,’ which is making fun of the quotient of humanity that chooses to ignore irrefutable science. There’s also a song poking fun at consumerism and homophobia at the same time in the form of an advertisement for my cologne. Things like that. Instead of trying to be particularly partisan or political, it’s taking a step back from the fray

and looking at all of us and making fun of us for getting ourselves in this mess.” As for his famed tough-guy persona, he had this to say: “I was brought up in a family of mostly farmers, so when people accuse me of manliness or machismo, I say, ‘Well, you should meet my sisters. They could wipe up the floor with me.’ I never feel macho, but I do try to be dependable, and I don’t suffer fools gladly, but I’d always rather hug somebody than punch them.”

The Siren’s call

Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents are hosting two shows at Morro Bay’s The Siren, starting with Eagles tribute act The Long Run on Saturday, Oct. 12 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $20 presale at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com). You’ll hear the hits such as “Hotel California,” “Take It Easy,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “New Kid in Town,” “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” and more. Greg Loiacono (of The Mother Hips) plays next Thursday, Oct. 17, at The Siren (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $15 presale at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com or $20 at the door), with openers Scott Hirsch and Lauren Barth. Should be a great evening of folk, pop, and rock.

Three at the Rock

The SLO Brew Rock Event Center hosts Rocktoberfest on Friday, Oct. 11 (4 p.m.; all ages; free). “Dust off those lederhosen and dirndls, the tradition of Rocktoberfest returns … for a night filled with laughter, Stein Slammer beers, German specialties, Biergarten games, and live performances from local favorites, Miss Leo & Her Bluegrass Boys and Trio Internationale,” according to the promoter. Singer-songwriter and multiinstrumentalist Kishi Bashi (née Kaoru Ishibashi) plays the Rock on Saturday, Oct. 12 (8 p.m.; 18-and-older; $20 at slobrew. com), with guest Takenobu opening. Bashi is touring to support his latest, Omoiyari, “a thoroughly researched art piece that reckons thematically with the country’s past internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, exploring the parallels between 1940s America and the current U.S. administration’s constant talk of walls and bans,” press materials described. Finally, brassy funk, rock, and jazz ensemble MarchFourth plays next Thursday, Oct. 17 (8 p.m.; 21-andolder; $16 at slobrew.com). This is a big, theatrical, horn-driven act!

Sentimental cynicism

Noah Colton embodies the PostMillennial zeitgeist, the Gen Y selfawareness of being raised in the info age of social media, screens, and zero privacy. The songs on his debut EP, Don’t, reflect the complications of contemporary life. “Don’t save the shirt I used to wear, please don’t hold me there. I know it hurts, but I’m trying to be fair, so please don’t hold me there. Don’t keep my name in your phone. I think we need some time alone. It’s hard not looking back, but

you’re never coming home, so don’t keep me in your phone,” he sings of broken love on the EP’s title track. The local singer-songwriter used to be a member of Spaces Between, but now he’s released this four-song personal project that closes with the wonderfully sophomoric dorm-room philosophy of “The Cheap Outdated Self-Discovery,” on which he sings, “Eyes burning red, strike the chord and see the ceaseless call with the subtle draw that seems to beckon me. Begging for release, intentions meant to please, the age-old test for the second best still good enough to be the cheap outdated self-discovery for the existential next recovery from a pain mistaken image of me.” You can see Colton perform live this week on Friday, Oct. 11, at Paso Robles’ Hoyt Family Vineyards (6 to 8 p.m.; all ages; free); and on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Puffers of Pismo (7 to 10 p.m.; all ages; free), where he’ll by accompanied by Josh Barrett and Hayden Gardner of B & The Hive.

More music …

The Carolyn Sills Combo plays on Saturday, Oct. 12 (12:30 p.m.; all ages; free), at the Concert in the City Park Gazebo for Paso Robles’ 89th annual Pioneer Days Parade. Sills grew up on Marty Robbins’ classic, “El Paso,” that goes like this: “Out in the West Texas town of El Paso.” She’ll reimagine it with her song, “Return to El Paso,” along with other western originals and covers in Sills’ signature “Spaghetti Western Swing” style. It’s time for the Morro Bay Sings 11th anniversary fundraiser this Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Morro Bay Community Center (doors at 5 p.m.; dinner from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m.; music starting at 7:15 p.m.; all ages; $50 tickets include food, at communityfoundationesterobay. org/events). This time around, hear songs of The Beach Boys from Jody Mulgrew and VOIX (an a cappella group with members from the Cuesta College VOCE group).

Having painted with the group herself, Rooney was able to become intimately familiar with Kellogg’s approach to both painting and life. “He was there every time I was there, unless he was traveling,” Rooney said. “He just loved to be outdoors, loved painting, and loved to be with the group.” Particularly impressive was Kellogg’s ability to paint quickly while maintaining his high technical caliber. “I would often position myself close to him when we were en plein air so I could watch and learn,” Rooney said. “He could paint two or three paintings in one session, whereas I would do half a painting, maybe. He just had a very easy style, and I think that was sort of indicative of his personality.” A natural teacher, Kellogg never stopped helping others improve their craft. “Usually when he spoke up, people listened— that type of person,” Rooney said. “Steve was always the one who was sort of the teacher of the group. He was the one who had the most constructive feedback for everybody. Now it’s greatly missed.” Simultaneously, Kellogg always strove to improve his own technique, too. “He was a voracious learner throughout his life. He was starting to do more traveling to take classes so that he could improve his painting,” Rooney remembered. “He just wanted to be the best artist he could be.” ∆ Arts Writer Malea Martin is checking out CCA’s collection.

ARTS Obispo welcomes its 21st year of Open Studios Tour to highlight local artists, build SLO’s creative community

F

rom the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art to the abundance of opendaily galleries around town, it’s not difficult to view great art in SLO. But how often do you get to see the process that brings those works to fruition? The ARTS Obispo Open Studios Tour aims to provide just that: a chance for the public to engage with the local arts community from a different angle. For two weekends—Oct. 12 to 13, and Oct. 19 to 20—168 artists from across SLO County will open their studio doors to visitors. This year marks the 21st year for the annual event. FAMILIAR SIGHTS A gallerygoer observes a featured painting that captures San Luis Obispo’s iconic mountains. Ahead of the tour, ARTS Obispo creates a catalog for tourgoers to peruse as they make their studio rounds. “People can go around and create their own little art tour throughout the county,” Edel Mitchell, ARTS Obispo project coordinator, told New Times. Free to the public, the paper catalogs can be picked up at all public libraries as well as many local galleries. An electronic version is available as well. What makes this event different from just another day at the gallery, Mitchell said, is that most of the artists are opening up their homes. “Basically what the public can do is go into that space and see the process of making the art,” she said. “A lot of the time, artists will do a live demonstration of how it works and how everything comes together, the process of what they do. There are some galleries that are joining in, but I would say mostly it’s personal studios.” For the participating artists, the tour presents a chance to get to know the community that they hope to sell their OPENING NIGHT Along with coordinating the two weekends of the Open Studios Art work to.

o-writer Todd Phillips (Old School, The Hangover, War Dogs) directs this character study and origin story of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), who after being rejected by society becomes Joker, Batman’s future archnemesis. (121 min.)

JOKER

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth, Anna? Full price What’s it worth, Glen? Full price Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10, Sunset Drive-In

Glen Like a mirror on contemporary society, Joker reflects our problems back to us—the widening gap between the haves and have-nots, paternalistic politician-“saviors” who believe they know best for the “misguided” underclass, and the dismantling of the social safety net by a government that abandons its marginalized. It’s a dark and depressing film, and it reminds me of the old saying, “Society gets the criminal it deserves.” In Joker, I’ll also add that society gets the politicians it deserves. Gotham is in the middle of a garbage strike (think NYC in 1968, though the cars in the film make the setting closer to the late-’70s). The city’s on edge, and Arthur Fleck and his mother Penny Fleck are barely hanging on in their rundown apartment. Arthur makes a living as a party clown, and early on we see he’s the object of ridicule—a man who can’t get respect in a society that’s abandoned civility. In the beginning, the violence that occurs is perpetrated against Fleck, not by him. He’s clearly had a difficult life, and he’s surviving thanks to social services providing him with the medication he needs to stay sane … until his services are cut. You can see where this is going. The film sympathizes with Fleck, a character with a vibe similar to Travis

Bickle in Taxi Driver (1976) who like Howard Beale in Network (1976) has a meltdown. Remember? He’s mad as hell and he’s not going to take this anymore! It’s a creepy, disturbing, and bleak ride that’s probably not for everyone. Anna This movie is a dark descent into Fleck’s madness, the scale of which cloaks over Gotham like a dark, wet sheet as both he and the city spiral down. As you mentioned, it’s ripe with parallels to society today—painting a dismal portrait of the state of things. Phoenix is by all accounts a chameleon, his transformation into characters is jaw-droppingly good, and Joker may be his best yet. In Arthur he creates a character that you pity and in Joker one that you hate, and yet the two are one in the same. Early on, we see Arthur in a weekly meeting with his social worker, answering the same questions he does every week, pleading for more medication. When the social worker protests that surely the seven meds he’s on already must be doing something, Arthur exhaustedly rubs his face and says he just doesn’t want to feel bad any longer. It’s heartbreaking; the man is clearly so very broken in the beginning, and then Arthur learns even more about his own past—enough to send him along the path to his destiny as Joker. He dreams of being a stand-up comedian, having a girlfriend, and taking care of his mother, but his reality and delusions are murky and cruel; he can’t trust his own mind, let alone anyone around him. I was so impressed with this film. Phoenix’s performance here is going to stick with me for a long time. Glen Phoenix is amazing here. I understand he lost 52 pounds for the role, and it shows in his emaciated frame. We often see him contorting TURN THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix, left) meets the young Bruce himself into a painfully twisted Wayne (Dante Pereira-Olson) for the first time wraith. It almost seems like through the gate at Wayne Mansion. he’s developing a hunchback,

DESCENT INTO MADNESS After being rejected by society, Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) becomes Joker, Batman’s future archnemesis, in this dark and disturbing origin story.

though that may be part of his body acting—I wasn’t sure. Fleck suffers from an affliction that causes him to laugh uncontrollably in the wrong situations, and Phoenix’s laughter is more like a convulsion wracking his body. It’s a fully immersed and wholly committed performance. Fleck’s fantasy is to appear on Live with Murray Franklin, an evening talk show hosted by Murray Franklin (Robert De Niro), in a side plot that cinephiles will recognize as lifted from The King of Comedy (1982)—which starred De Niro as unsuccessful standup comic Rupert Pupkin, who kidnaps his comedy idol, Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). This is clearly a film made by a film lover, and the touchstones to other films are abundant. Some might argue that these references makes Joker derivative, but I see it as homage. Future Batman’s father, Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen), is a stand-in for all the paternalistic politicians who see the poor and downtrodden as losers who need to be helped through tough love, and anyone who knows Bruce Wayne’s backstory won’t be surprised at what befalls his parents. Though not tied to any of the other Batman films, Joker works as the set-up to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy: Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), and The Dark Knight Rises (2012). So many of Joker’s memorable moments keep popping into my head as I think about the film—deep, dark, disturbing moments. I loved it.

Now, bursts of antimatter threaten Earth, which appear to be coming from the senior McBride’s Lima Project, last heard from 16 years earlier in orbit around Neptune. Essentially, Ad Astra is an existentialist quandary. Are we alone in the universe?

Can we really make a true connection with anyone or anything? If these questions interest you and if you can settle in to this mesmerizing but often slow and contemplative film, you just might love it.

Anna The movie definitely tips its hat to a bunch of films, which I find a lot of fun. The Bickle/Taxi Driver vibe is especially strong in Arthur, and having De Niro share the screen is a cool way to honor the characters’ similarities. Thomas Wayne soon becomes the object of Arthur’s fascination and then scorn after he discovers what he thinks is a connection between them. He also dotes on his mother, somewhat begrudgingly, and to say the two have an odd motherson dynamic is understated. Take a bath on your own, mom! We soon learn that Penny herself has been hiding some dark secrets, ones that may explain a lot of Arthur’s psychological issues. It’s darkness all around. How did the madman become the menace? Why, he was systematically broken down by a society that doesn’t care for the poor or mentally ill, uncared for, and unnoticed. Menace seems to be his only chance at getting noticed, and Arthur’s transformation into Joker gets the attention of Gotham. In fact, it changes the scene altogether, and his crooked smile becomes the battle symbol of the have-nots. I can’t say it enough—I thought this was great. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved this deep dive into the origin of Joker. Maybe don’t take the kids, but definitely see it in the theater if you have any interest in it at all. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

She’s in the company of her two youngest children, Lorna (Bella Ramsey) and Joey (Lewin Lloyd), who at this time have become part of her stage act of singing and dancing. As they’re getting called to the stage, Garland is given an envelope with a couple hundred dollars and an apology that it might not be what she’s used to receiving. No matter darling, the show must go on. After the performance, she and her sleepy children get in a taxi to their hotel only to learn that there’s an issue with her bank accounts; the room was released. With nowhere to go, Garland and the children head over to her ex-husband Sidney Luft’s (Rufus Sewell) home so the children have a place to sleep. It’s the beginning of the end for Garland who becomes homeless, practically penniless, and basically blacklisted from performing in Los Angeles for being unreliable. She wants to make enough to give her children a stable home, so Garland decides to leave for London to perform at the Talk of the Town, a cabaret-restaurant, and really the only place that wants to pay for her voice. The film centers on these last few weeks of loneliness and the angst she feels about potentially losing her talent. Her talent is her voice, and she remembers it’s the only thing that made her relevant in the industry—that is, according to Louis B. Mayer. Zellweger did a fine job portraying Garland’s fragility, movements on stage, and frantic yet elegant mannerisms. She also belted out all of

T

his is the worst day of my life,” Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti (Bruce Greenwood) says gravely, as he watches, from his office TV, fugitive O.J. Simpson’s Ford Bronco barrel down Highway 405, with the entire LAPD following and the entire world watching. Greenwood’s well-delivered declaration makes a fitting summation of not just that historic car chase and police PR disaster, but of what’s to come in the 2016 true crime series, The People v. O.J. Simpson. The 10-episode series, which first aired on FX and later won nine Emmy Awards, chronicles the former football star’s notorious double-murder trial, from the Brentwood crime scene to the

stunning “not guilty” verdict. Competent, nuanced performances from the series’ cast and good writing makes The People v. O.J. feel like a tale we haven’t seen or heard before. It does a great job of establishing the historical context, beginning with the 1992 Rodney King riots that set the tone for the racial strife present in Simpson’s prosecution, defense, and media coverage. Particularly impressive in their roles are Sarah Paulson as Deputy District Attorney Marcia Clark, who passionately and determinedly prosecuted the case, and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, the civil rights lawyer who joined Simpson’s “Dream Team” of attorneys that ultimately prevailed. Both actors expertly draw out their characters’ motivations and convincingly portray them in the context of the time. Overall, this show does an effective job at re-creating what the Simpson case was

in real life: one of the most dramatic and high-profile criminal cases in U.S. history. This trial distilled so many fraught elements of American culture and society, intertwining them in ways that couldn’t help but generate nationwide intrigue. It exposed the blurred lines between justice, power, and celebrity. It brought racism and sexism to the fore. It represented enough salient stuff to trigger countless articles, books, documentaries, and TV series about it, like this one. The People v. O.J. is a captivating ride. I learned quite a bit about the saga that I didn’t know before (I was only 3 years old when the events took place). It’s not a perfect show by any means. I wasn’t a big fan of Cuba Gooding Jr.’s shrieky portrayal of Simpson, which according to other show reviews, wasn’t really what Simpson acted and sounded like. John Travolta’s stiff performance as Dream Team lawyer Robert Shapiro left something to be desired. At points along the way, there’s a generic Law and Order vibe that I wish it avoided. But all in all, the pieces here fit quite well together (like a glove, you could say … sorry), and the story, like it did in reality, unfolds in a thrilling way. Almost everything that’s lacking is made up for with smart writing, direction, and a variety of strong performances. (10 episodes, 40 to 60 min. each). ∆ —Peter Johnson

Garland’s greatest hits throughout the film beautifully, but hers lacked the fantasy that Garland’s voice possessed. Judy shows the usual highs and lows of a powerful entertainer broken down by a system dominated by men who controlled women. Like most biopics that don’t have the rights to the entirety of a person’s life, I feel there was a lot missing from this story. I wanted to know more about how Frances became Judy, what her life was like before becoming an actress, and what she struggled with to ultimately die at age 47 from an accidental overdose. The cause of her death is not mentioned at the end of the film. (118 min.) —Karen

right up to the counter, check the menu and specials up on the chalkboard, order, and find a comfortable table. The vibe is friendly and laid-back. “We want it to be a place where people want to hang out,” King said about the open format and welcoming back porch, where the bands now play. “Don’t just show up, eat a burger, and run. Hang out. Bring a book. Play some games … .” King is originally from Tennessee and has a little buttery twang in her accent. She has lived and worked all over the states, from North Carolina to Colorado, but she moved to SLO County to be closer to her boyfriend’s family. She is a hospitality industry veteran of 25 years, and you will see her peek out the kitchen window to receive orders from the crew. She started out apprenticing under a classically trained chef at a French restaurant at age 17 and has worked every job there is in a restaurant since—she can even make ice sculptures. King said she spent the last decade bartending for a British pub, where she “truly perfected the art of cursing,” she said. King’s boyfriend, Fox, who spent a good part of his childhood in SLO County, runs the restaurant with her 80 hours a week, cooking and bartending. “We like to do our best to spend our money where we make it,” she said, adding that they feature and support local food, wine, and beer purveyors: from Corberosa Coffee to Bryson’s Honey. Zara Zaitz was our lovely server for the evening. I’m familiar with the term “locally sourced,” but Zara was pointing out which trees the lemons and walnuts came from, just outside the PHOTO BY BETH GIUFFRE restaurant’s window. “Zara works every day we are open,” King said. I saw her handle every table inside and outside while Connie Zaitz, cheerful and tireless “Mom” of the house, bused tables and did whatever else had to be done. King said she is “head gardener, dishwasher, and overall MVP for her cheerfulness and hard work.” My husband and I found many intriguing items on the menu. We’re usually suckers for a good cheese plate, and the appetizer menu stated that theirs is made with Farm Girl Creamery’s triple cream brie, Central Coast Creamery’s Holey Cow and Big Rock blue cheese, dried fruit, jam, and Back Porch Bakery baguette. LADY IN RED The new owners re-surfaced Tempted though we were, the bar, and up on the chalkboards are the daily we decided on the spicy Korean specials and a list of local wines and drafts, including the Niner chardonnay, Ancient Peaks cauliflower wings as a starter. The cab, Central Coast Brewing’s Peanut Butter crispy cauliflower florets were sticky Breakdown, and Tent City Imperial Red Ale. and semi-spicy in a gochujang sauce very day, 18,000 cars drive past Autumn King’s restaurant. The new chef and owner of Halfway Station told me those traffic audit numbers are the reason she and her family picked this location, halfway between Morro Bay and Atascadero. On an early fall day, the place was hopping with families, couples, and a lively bar crowd. The place is open and light. High ceilings and long, undressed windows lead way to an open floor plan with a couple of tables upstairs. Earlier this year, King, her boyfriend Daniel Fox, and partners Omega and Kristin Zaitz turned the former Last Stage West barbecue stop/pot-themed wedding venue/once-upon-a-time filling station into a cool locals hangout. They fit space with a gorgeous, rustic interior complete with chalkboard signs, a resurfaced bar, barn doors, and large redwood tables handcrafted by local carpenter Pete Moore. On the back porch you’ll find bocce and games, music, and a little free library. The place before was a lovable hole in the wall, which fit a niche for a while, but the new owners have brought in a welcoming, hospitable element; locally sourced gourmet menu; beautiful wine list; and immaculately clean bathrooms. “We joke that we had to make it a place for a woman to stop by herself and use the bathroom,” King laughed, saying they should have made that their slogan. “Now kids come in to use the bathroom. They even come in themselves, so we must be doing something right!” No reservations needed—just swing

and were served with a creamy cilantro dipping sauce. We were a little giddy that we were tasting something exotic and yet down-home comforting, unlike anything we’d ever had before. The main dishes consisted of about seven choices of anything from a bratwurst sandwich (with J&R Meats German sausage and vintage cheddar) to the Rock Burger, with Central Coast Creamery Big Rock blue cheese, thickcut bacon, caramelized onions, and whole grain mustard sauce with handcut, twice-fried fries. King can make a Beyond Meat plant-based patty instead, if you like. We ordered the Station Burger, as we were intrigued by the “special sauce.” Our burger was satisfyingly perfect, with local grass-fed beef, vintage cheddar, and good ol’ iceberg lettuce.

King later revealed to me the hottest item on the menu. Apparently, Connie Zaitz’s cheesecake has a cult following. “I don’t even have to put it on the menu and it sells out,” she said. King’s cool, refreshing lemon semifreddo is also regularly on the menu. We tried the peanut butter chocolate semifreddo—a frozen mousse-like ice-creamy dessert—at King’s suggestion. She said that after she made it, she ate a piece for breakfast, and I don’t blame her one bit. “Our menu is still evolving,” she said, adding that she hopes to feature more dinner entrees, local seafood, and steaks in the future.

Ever go to the SLO Food Co-op’s grab-and-go case? You can find healthy, seasonal soups; vegan dream wraps; sandwiches (including tuna fish and Central Coast Muffuletta); and all kinds of baked goods. If you are on paleo or gluten free or whatever else, there are bars and food inventions (many local) all over the store, but for now my family is experiencing apple fever, so we felt compelled to try their mini (personalsized) American apple pie made by the coop bakers. The filling is classic soul food: apples, pure cane sugar, and cinnamon, with a perfectly crumbly but soft crust. When you go there, be sure to check out the new sign, beautiful murals, and quotes on the parking lot wall. Like this one from Alice Waters, founder of the Slow Food movement: “Good food is a right, not a privilege.

for the week of Oct. 10

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: I discuss some of my ideas about astrology in the article published here: tinyurl.com/robonastrology. ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Love is when you meet someone who tells you something new about yourself,” wrote poet André Breton. I think that’s an excellent principle to put at the top of your priority list in the coming weeks, Aries. To be in maximum alignment with cosmic rhythms, you should seek input from allies who’ll offer insights about you that are outside your current conceptions of yourself. You might even be daring enough to place yourself in the paths of strangers, acquaintances, animals, and teachers who can provide novel reflections. There’s just one caveat: Stay away from people who might be inclined to fling negative feedback.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Constantine P. Cavafy’s poem “Waiting for the Barbarians” imagines the imminent arrival of an unpredictable agent of chaos. “The barbarians are coming today,” declares the narrator. Everyone in town is uneasy. People’s routines are in disarray. Faces look worried. What’s going to happen? But the poem has a surprise ending. “It is night, and the barbarians haven’t come,” reports the narrator. “Some people have arrived from the frontier and say that there aren’t any more barbarians.” I propose that we use this scene as a metaphor for your life right now, Taurus. It’s quite possible that the perceived threat isn’t really a threat. So here’s my question, taken from near the end of the poem: “What are we going to do now without the barbarians?”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Some folklorists prefer the term “wonder tales” rather than “fairy tales.” Indeed, many such stories are filled with marvelous events that feature magical transformations, talking animals, and mythical creatures like elves and dragons and unicorns. I bring this up, Gemini, because I want to encourage you to read some wonder tales. Hopefully, as you do, you’ll be inspired to re-imagine your life as a wonder tale; you’ll reframe the events of the “real world” around you as being elements in a richly entertaining wonder tale. Why do I recommend this? Because wonder tales are like waking dreams that reveal the wishes and curiosities and fascinations of your deep psyche. And I think you will benefit profoundly in the coming weeks from consciously tuning in to those wishes and curiosities and fascinations.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I suspect that in the coming days you’ll be able to see into everyone’s souls more vividly than usual. You’ll have a special talent for piercing through the outer trappings of their personalities so as to gaze at the essence beneath. It’s as if your eyes will be blessed by an enhancement that enables you to discern what’s often hidden. This upgrade in your perception may at times be unsettling. For some of the people you behold, the difference between how they present themselves and who they actually are will be dramatic. But for the most part, penetrating to the depths should be fun, enriching, even healing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “This heart is rusty,” writes poet Gabriel Gadfly. “It creaks, it clanks, it crashes and rattles and bangs.” Why is his heart in such a state? Because he has been separated from a person he loves. And so he’s out of practice in doing the little things, the caring gestures and tender words, that a lover does to keep the heart well-oiled. It’s my observation that most of us go through rusty-heart phases like this even when we are living in close proximity to an intimate ally. We neglect to practice the art of bestowing affectionate attention and low-key adoration. We forget how important it is for our own welfare that we continually refresh and reinvigorate our heart intelligence. These are good meditations for you right now, Leo.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “All the effort in the world won’t matter if you’re not inspired,” writes novelist Chuck Palahniuk. I agree! And that’s a key meditation for you right now. Your assignment is to enhance and upgrade the inspiration you feel about the

activities that are most important to you—the work and the play that give you the sense you’re living a meaningful life. So how do you boost your excitement and motivation for those essential actions you do on a regular basis? Here’s a good place to begin: visualize in exuberant detail all the reasons you started doing them in the first place.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I hope you are embarking on a vigorous new phase of self-redefinition. I trust you are excited about shedding old ways of thinking about yourself and eager to revise and re-imagine the plot of your life story. As you do, keep in mind this helpful counsel from physicist Richard Feynman: “You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It’s their mistake, not my failing.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ve probably heard the saying, “Genius is 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration.” It’s often attributed to inventor Thomas Edison. Sixteenth-century artist Michelangelo expressed a similar idea. “If you knew how much labor went into it, you would not call it genius,” he said about one of his masterpieces. I’m guessing that you Scorpios have been in a phase when these descriptions are highly apropos. The work you’ve been doing may look productive and interesting and heroic to the casual observer, and maybe only you know how arduous and exacting it has been. So now what do you do? I say it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts. Celebrate! Give yourself a thrilling gift.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The universe is under no obligation to make sense to you,” declared astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. If that’s even a little bit true, I bet you won’t believe it in the coming weeks. According to my analysis, the universe will make a great deal of sense to you—at times even exquisite, beautiful, breathtaking sense. Life will be in a revelatory and articulate mood. The evocative clues coming your way about the nature of reality could tempt you to believe that there is indeed a coherent plan and meaning to your personal destiny.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 2005, Facebook was a start-up company barely on the map of the internet. Its president asked graffiti artist David Choe to paint murals on the walls of its headquarters. Choe asked for $60,000, but the president convinced him to be paid with Facebook stock instead. Years later, when Facebook went public, Choe became a multi-millionaire. I suspect that in the coming months you will be faced with choices that are less spectacular than that, Capricorn, but similar and important. My conclusion: Be willing to consider smart gambles when projects are germinating.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Experiment is the sole source of truth,” wrote philosopher and polymath Henri Poincaré. “It alone can teach us something new; it alone can give us certainty.” He wasn’t merely referring to the kinds of experiments that scientists conduct in laboratories. He was talking about the probes and explorations we can and should carry out in the course of our daily lives. I mention this, Aquarius, because the coming days will be prime time for you to do just that: ask provocative questions, initiate novel adventures, and incite fun learning experiences.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In my opinion, Piscean singer, poet, and actor Saul Williams produces high-quality art. So he has earned a right to critique mediocre art. In speaking about movies and TV shows that are hard to enjoy unless we dumb ourselves down, he says that “we have more guilty pleasure than actual f------ pleasure.” Your assignment in the coming weeks, Pisces, is to cut back on your “guilty pleasures”—the entertainment, art, and socializing that brings meager returns—as you increase and upgrade your actual f------ pleasure. ∆
