Defense seeks gag order in capital murder case

A

ttorneys representing a 42-year-old man accused of raping and murdering a Paso Robles woman are asking a judge to keep the media and public in the dark about developments in the highly publicized case as it moves toward trial in SLO County. Defense attorneys for Carlo Alberto Fuentes Flores filed a motion seeking a gag order in the case on Feb. 19, asking a judge to seal all or portions of future motions and documents in the case, bar attorneys and investigators from sharing facts or opinions about the case, and close an upcoming preliminary hearing to the press and public. In their motion, Flores’ defense attorneys argued that the gag order is necessary because they believe heavy media coverage of the case and hostile attitudes toward Mexican immigrants in the United States could bias a jury against him. “The defense is deeply concerned that [Flores’] right to a fair trial will be jeopardized by intense and inflammatory social media and pretrial publicity,” the defense motion states. Flores was arrested in December 2018 in connection with the murder of 62-year-old Nancy Woodrum, who’d been missing for more than seven months before investigators located her body in a remote area near Highway 58. Flores’ arrest received widespread media coverage, including a press conference where Sheriff Ian Parkinson told reporters that Flores had been linked to Woodrum through DNA evidence and that he’d led investigators to her body. In a written declaration submitted to the court, Bryan Edelman, a jury research consultant retained by Flores’ defense team, said there were 53 articles published about the case since May 2018. Edelman stated that while the coverage was “not yet overtly inflammatory,” it did contain “sensational elements,” and he believed that there was a reasonable likelihood

that the pool of jurors PHOTO COURTESY OF THE SLO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE in SLO County would be “saturated” with prejudicial media coverage as the case moved toward trial. “This type of pretrial publicity has the potential to undermine the presumption of innocence,” Edelman wrote. Edelman and Flores’ attorneys also argued that increasingly inflammatory rhetoric against undocumented immigrants from Mexico has created a “toxic climate” for Mexican nationals and could further jeopardize Flores’ right to GAG ORDER Sheriff’s investigators search a remote area where a fair trial. In his report, Nancy Woodrum’s body was found in December 2018. Lawyers for her alleged killer are asking a SLO County judge to issue a gag order in the Edelman directly quoted case as it moves to trial. multiple comments from President Donald Trump immigration status since his arrest and have connecting undocumented yet to clarify it publicly. In their motion to Mexican immigrants and crime, including one court, Flores’ attorneys said he was a Mexican instance where he called them “rapists” early in national, and Edelman said that Flores was a his 2016 campaign.

Affordable housing can happen in Cambria

More than half of the room at the Cambria Community Services District meeting on Feb. 28 was filled with residents who supported an amendment that would make affordable housing a possibility in the area. Business owner and Cambria Chamber of Commerce member Fidel Figueroa was among the supporters. He was speaking on behalf of himself and other business owners who couldn’t be present, Fidel said, adding that there is an extreme need for housing for their employees. “I know this from my first-hand experience of my own business that some employees are driving 60-plus miles a day for work to the Cambria and San Simeon area. There are four or five families in a single-family residence in Cambria, and there are 55 families living in converted motel rooms in the area,” Figueroa said. The district unanimously approved an amendment to its municipal code regarding affordable housing that gives the board a mechanism to determine whether an affordable housing project can proceed. According to a staff report, the amendment would enable the board to allow a project for

extremely low-income, very low-income, lowerincome, moderate-income, or workforce housing to connect to the Community Services District’s water system—subject to the county’s growth management ordinance and any other required approvals by the other governmental agencies. During a district meeting last month, someone questioned how San Luis Obispo County’s Affordable Housing Program worked in relation to Cambria. In December 2018, the SLO County Board of Supervisors agreed, in principle, to a three-year plan that involves a variety of new fees, possible taxes, and county contributions that could bring in $2 million to $4 million each year for affordable housing. Tim Carmel, the district’s legal counsel, said he believed people didn’t realize that affordable housing could move forward in Cambria, despite the moratorium on building. “So that, in and of itself, may have discouraged affordable housing. What this ordinance has done is it has a provision in there that says specifically the intent to serve letters can, at the board’s discretion, can be issued and a project can move forward subject to available water,” Carmel said.

Cindy Steidel, a district board director, said the community should understand that affordable housing does not mean uncontrolled growth. “We control our own destiny with regard to the quantity and timing of how these things happen, and that’s further strengthened in the district code revisions,” Steidel said. —Karen Garcia

SLO County eyes new rules on well drilling

San Luis Obispo County supervisors are exploring what it’d take to bolster the county’s authority in issuing groundwater well permits. Following a report about groundwater conditions in the Adelaida region of the North County on Feb. 26, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to have its staff look at how it could increase the level of review and discretion the county has over approving or denying well applications. The board’s direction was spurred in part by continued concerns out of Adelaida—the region west of Highway 101, between Paso Robles and Templeton—about a surge in agriculture and its resulting effect on the area’s water supply, which lies below the ground in a maze of interconnected fractured rock. Some residents over this largely unstudied groundwater region say they’ve lost wells in recent years. New agricultural projects and water systems proposed in the area consistently draw concerns and protests from surrounding property owners. “There are currently zero drilling restrictions on the west side,” landowner David Leader said, “no limitations on the number of new wells drilled, nor how deep they’re drilled, nor how close they’re drilled to existing family wells, nor how much water they’re allowed to pump out of the ground. It’s truly the Wild Wild West.” Led by 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold, the county board on Feb. 26 debated the best direction for new policies. Arnold suggested reforming the well permitting process, so that any system of a certain size is subject to more vetting, review, and discretion. “If we start to control and put some discretion on the systems we’re permitting out there, we’re going to see a big change,” Arnold said. Currently, the county Public Health Department processes all well permits over the counter, with only applications for deep wells into the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin (to the east of Highway 101) required to submit further documentation. But county officials warned that overhauling well policies could be legally tenuous without more data and technical information to document the groundwater woes. According to a memo prepared for the meeting by private firm GSI Water Solutions, a study of groundwater in Adelaida would cost between $140,000 and $420,000. In lieu of that, the supervisors instead directed county staff to ask the U.S. Geological Survey if the agency was interested in commissioning a study. In a statement to New Times, SLO County Farm Bureau Executive Director Brent Burchett said any future well regulations “ought to be based on scientific evidence applicable to specific local conditions.” “Until we understand the unique water challenges in a given area, we cannot make good policy decisions,” Burchett said on behalf of the organization.

The board will receive an update in late May on the potential policies. —Peter Johnson

According to a Grover Beach staff report, the conceptual proposal includes two phases. The first would consist of remodeling the existing buildings’ approximately 17,000 sqaure feet for 5CHC’s administrative office, case management service center, winter warming shelter, 11 youth dormitory rooms with up to 44 beds, on-site live-in manager, and other services.

The lengthy process of determining whether a pipeline company responsible for a 2015 oil spill will be allowed to replace more than 100 miles of pipeline through SLO, Santa Barbara, and Kern counties kicked off with hearings and protests in two Central Coast cities. Hearings about the scope of an environmental review for Plains All American Pipeline’s proposed project to replace 123 miles of existing pipeline through the three counties were held Feb. 27 in Santa Barbara and Feb. 28 in Arroyo Grande. Officials from Santa Barbara County, the lead agency in processing the project application, said the hearings were a chance for residents to chime in on what impacts they want to be considered in a draft environmental impact report (EIR) of the project. “We are still in the very initial stages of preparing that document,” said Kathryn Lehr, a project planner with the Santa Barbara County Planning and Development Department, at the Feb. 28 meeting. The pipeline and offshore drilling VIEWER DISCRETION by Jayson Mellom platforms have been shut down since May 2015, when a pipeline rupture released 142,800 gallons of crude oil along the coast near Gaviota.

Those included Pismo Beach City Councilmember Shelia Blake, who raised concerns about giving Plains All American a second the local Continuum of Care programs in chance after the 2015 spill. “I trust them about as far as I can throw SLO County show it will be allocated $4.8 million.

Sheriff’s Office searches for motive in pregnant woman’s murder

As friends, family, and the community try to come to grips with the shocking murder of a 27-year-old pregnant woman in Paso Robles, investigators have yet to identify just what caused her longtime boyfriend to allegedly commit the crime. Investigators say they believe that Daniel Ruiz Rodriguez Johnson murdered the woman, identified as 27-year-old Carrington Jane Broussard and the 9-month-old fetus she was carrying but don’t know what may have driven him to do it, according to SLO County Undersheriff Jim Voge. “We do not have any information on a possible motive,” Voge said at a March 4 press conference. Voge said the couple was not legally married but had been in a relationship for about six years and had two daughters in addition to Broussard’s unborn child. Voge said preliminary evidence indicated that Broussard was stabbed multiple times. The couple’s two other daughters were unharmed and have been placed with family members, Voge said. Johnson was initially arrested in March after he reportedly stole an unoccupied California Highway Patrol vehicle. Johnson led CHP and SLO Sheriff’s Office deputies on a chase until the vehicle was disabled with a spike strip near San Simeon and he was subdued using less-than-lethal ammunition, according to CHP reports. After his arrest, Sheriff’s deputies went to the residence Johnson was living in, located on the 2800 block of Sorrell Lane in rural Paso Robles, where they discovered Broussard’s body. Johnson is currently in SLO County Jail. At the press conference, Voge said the Sheriff’s Office plans to charge him with two murders: Broussard and her unborn child. While investigators continue to seek a motive in Broussard’s death, her family has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for her funeral. As of March 6, they had raised a total of $7,770. In a post on Facebook, Broussard’s brother, Christofer Jewett, said the response from the public in the wake of his sister’s death was a “blessing.” “Such a weight has been lifted from my heart, not because of the money, but because how many random people care,” Jewett wrote. “The support of the community. The world isn’t just filled with terrible people. There is good out there, thank you all.” Δ —Chris McGuinness

Protecting fire service

Arroyo Grande questions whether it can stick with the Five Cities Fire Authority

A

rroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano have been bound together since 2010 by a joint powers agreement to maintain fire protection service through the Five Cities Fire Authority. On Feb. 26, Arroyo Grande City Council members discussed whether the city could remain in the joint powers agreement. Mayor Caren Ray Russom said Arroyo Grande wants to be in the agreement with the other communities— that’s the goal. However, she said the reality is that a modern fire department can’t stand on its own anymore. “What it comes down to is Arroyo Grande is paying more than its fair share right now, and it has for quite some time. Oceano is paying less than its fair share, and everybody agrees on that,” Russom said. The Fire Authority has been facing the challenge of recruiting and retaining firefighters to consistently staff the department and service the three communities. In 2017, the department created a five-year strategic plan that included a proposal to switch from part-time reserve firefighters to full-time career firefighters, which increased the size of the department’s budget. The following year, the Fire Authority proposed an amendment to get the personnel transition into motion, which is part of the agreement that Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano have yet to approve. If the communities don’t agree to the amendment by April 1, the joint powers agreement will dissolve on Dec. 31. According to the agreement for the 2018-19 fiscal year, Arroyo Grande would put forth $2.5 million, Grover Beach would pay about $1.8 million, and Oceano would contribute $987,362. “The complication is the cities of Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach have big enough budgets that we can move numbers around according to the priorities of the council,” Russom said. “Oceano doesn’t have that.” The Oceano Community Services District currently spends 97 percent of its property tax revenue on fire operations. Oceano could look into an option to increase its portion of the funding—a $150-per-year parcel tax increase for Oceano property owners. The tax would need to be approved by two-thirds of district voters. At the Feb. 26 City Council meeting, San Luis Obispo County Administrative Officer Wade Horton said the SLO County Board of Supervisors has created an ad hoc committee to further explore the challenges that special districts are facing in the county, such as current fire services. Horton said SLO County’s 1st District Supervisor John Peschong and 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson

would be willing to sit down with a council designee to discuss the challenges and see if they can find resolution. The council agreed to the meeting and Russom said she doesn’t know what the county is going to propose. But she said the issue is complicated because of the nature of a community services district. The county has seven community services districts, she said, and the districts are all dealing with the problem of their fire services being underfunded because the cost for providing service has increased. “So if the county comes in and says, ‘Yeah, we want to help Oceano,’ the problem then is the county is going to have to help Templeton and Cambria and Cayucos and San Miguel as well,” Russom said. Horton said that he wants to make it clear that sitting down to have a conversation does not mean that any decision will be made. “The county is also facing a budget deficit that we need to close as well, so I think the ideal solution is the folks of Oceano would approve the parcel tax so they can stay in the joint powers agreement,” he said. “But it would be premature for me to say anything at this point, before we get together and have the opportunity to discuss any options.” Before the Five Cities Fire Authority’s joint powers agreement, Arroyo Grande, Oceano, and Grover Beach each had separate all-volunteer fire departments. In 2010, the three communities banded together to form a three-department agency. The Fire Authority operates under a boundary drop policy, which ensures that the closest appropriate engine is dispatched to the call, no matter where the incident is or what community the engine is stationed in. Across the state, the cost of providing fire protection has drastically changed over the last couple of years. In order to guarantee that a station is staffed with a firefighter, the once mostly volunteer model is changing to having paid positions. The Fire Authority’s firefighter personnel transition will create a base budget increase of more than $1.3 million annually when completed. According to a staff report, the current budget provided for the initial transition to career firefighters who are already assigned to the Arroyo Grande fire station. The projected fiscal year 201920 budget includes funding to continue the transition at the Grover Beach station, and finally, the Oceano station in 2020-21. The Arroyo Grande City Council ultimately decided to continue the discussion to its next meeting slated for March 12. ∆

Cannabis shock

Community division, accusations imperil York Mountain medical marijuana project

P

lans for 3 acres of outdoor medical cannabis cultivation and seven greenhouses on agricultural land in North County are in limbo after SLO County supervisors delayed a decision on the project at a Feb. 26 appeal hearing. The appeal hearing—the first of its kind for a cannabis project in SLO County— lasted four hours and showcased a community at odds. Residents from across the county came to weigh in, at times emotionally, on the grows proposed 7 miles west of Paso Robles, on York Mountain Road. “This is the most divisive project I think that’s come before this board,” said SLO County 1st District Supervisor John Peschong, who represents the area. York Mountain residents Frank Ricigliano and Sue Sullivan own the 77acre parcel where the project is planned. They declined to comment for this story. The site is positioned less than a mile off Highway 46, and SLO County issued a minor use permit to applicants Laura Gardner and Jim McAllister for the project in September 2018. The following month, Templeton area resident Ian McPhee appealed that decision. Opponents, which include the project’s direct neighbors, voiced concerns about the operation’s odor, water, and security impacts, as well as its overall compatibility with the York Mountain community.

“We moved to that area in 1995 for the peace, quiet, and serenity that it would offer,” said Mary Bang, who owns the property and home nearest to the site. “Since 1995, we have not seen any commercial-sized agricultural producing crop on that property.” The project’s nine proposed buildings— which include greenhouses, a nursery, offices, and processing facilities—would be located 400 feet from the Bangs’ property line. The outdoor cultivation is 650 feet away and atop a hill. Both distances exceed the county’s setback rules for cannabis grows, but that didn’t quell all concerns. “I have two small children. They both have asthma,” said Kristy Popowich, the Bangs’ daughter. “I do not believe there have been any studies to show what something like this does to somebody who already has respiratory issues. I’m very concerned.” Supporters, on the other hand, argued that the project’s water, biological, archaeological, and traffic studies showed there’d be minimal impacts to the environment. Odor, they said, would be addressed via odor filtration systems in the greenhouses, as well as ongoing participation in an odor-monitoring program. “This project meets all of the requirements,” said Jamie Jones, the applicants’ representative at the hearing. In her presentation, Jones also accused

the appellant and the Templeton Area Advisory Group (TAAG), whose board voted to oppose the project, of using deceptive tactics to sway the Board of Supervisors against it. A Google Earth photo submitted by the appellant and TAAG aimed to demonstrate that the cannabis site would be visible from Highway 46. Jones contended that the photo had been manipulated using a Google tool that denudes the landscape of nearby trees and shrubbery. “There were clearly special efforts by manipulation, and we just think that’s unfair,” Jones told the board. While the appellant’s attorney and TAAG representatives denied the allegation, 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill and 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton weren’t convinced. “I do believe the pictures were meant to deceive,” Compton said. Hill added, “I don’t think we want to start a precedent of making a decision based on manipulated information or false information.” That wasn’t the only accusation made at the hearing. One community member alleged that after he attended a TAAG meeting about the project, he found out his name had been included in a statement sent to the supervisors against it. “Later on, I got word that my name and my email was submitted with opposition to the board without my permission,” Bob Stewart said. “I’m 100 percent in support of this project, so whoever submitted my name and email, I don’t like it.” Members of TAAG and the community

Cultural expansion

he Five Cities Diversity Coalition is expanding to serve the entire county and recently renamed itself Diversity Coalition San Luis Obispo. Its purpose is to promote positive human understanding and behavior through charitable, scientific, and educational efforts at the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, ability, and all other aspects of identity. The coalition aims to increase cultural understanding through working with mayors, schools, law enforcement, citizens, and minority groups. Diversity Coalition San Luis Obispo President Rudy Xavier believes the way to grow cultural understanding is by providing education and resources to all ages. “Not only do we have to educate the young, we have to change the opinions of the older group,” Xavier said. The coalition has partnered with the Lucia Mar Unified School District to bring in guest speakers. Last year, the coalition brought in two speakers who presented at Paulding and Judkins middle schools—Holocaust survivor Henry Oster, who spoke in March 2018, and Sudanese Civil War refugee Alepho Deng, who spoke in February 2018. During the assembly with Deng, Xavier went to the front of the room to take a photo of the middle school students. “They were absolutely fascinated,” Xavier said. “He really, seriously, made an impression on them.”

in opposition expressed their own grievances with the process around the project. They described a rushed and scattered review, where new revisions to the project weren’t shared in detail with the community. While TAAG initially recommended approval of the project in October 2018, as concerns mounted and the appeal was filed, the group reversed its position. “The overall effort was to reflect the voice of the community,” said Larry Fluer, an elected member of TAAG and its cannabis project review committee. “As we listened to these voices, it shifted our focus.” County supervisors voted unanimously to continue the hearing to March 12. The applicant and appellant agreed to meet in the interim to try to strike a compromise, which may include moving the outdoor grow site farther away from the Bangs’ property, among other tweaks. While the hearing marked the first cannabis appeal in SLO County, it won’t be the last. Of the county’s 17 approved cannabis projects thus far, seven have been appealed to the board. Supervisor Bruce Gibson (2nd District) thinks the objections stem from the crop itself, and not the particulars of the project. “If this were 3 acres of wine grapes and seven greenhouses growing tomatoes with two processing buildings, we wouldn’t be here today,” Gibson said. “The question really boils down to whether we have a problem with cannabis.” ∆

The coalition and the district match speakers like Deng with English curriculum and books such as The Diary of Anne Frank and A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. Their collaboration also included the coalition’s sponsorshop of 22 teachers to visit the Museum of Tolerance in LA. “We’ve been really lucky to have this partnership, and it’s exciting to hear the Diversity Coalition is expanding,” Lucia Mar Unified School District Assistant Superintendent Hillery Dixon said. “I’m hoping that other sites, other school districts, will be able to benefit from the same work because it’s been so powerful for us.” Preston Allen, a former Cal Poly executive director of university housing and a 26-year Arroyo Grande resident, said the coalition has become an extension of the community since it was founded. W. David Conn started the group in 2011 after a cross was burned outside the home of a black Arroyo Grande family. Allen witnessed the aftermath. “The community’s response to that was so heartfelt,” Allen said. “We didn’t view it as we live in a racist environment, we view it as a community that we are so not that.” Most communities’ first response to something like a cross burning is to go inward and generate tension, Allen said, but when Arroyo Grande residents ran into each other at gas stations and grocery stores, they asked one another how they were doing.

PLANTING TOLERANCE The Diversity Coalition raised the funds to install this sculpture, Arboring Our Roots of Diversity, outside of Arroyo Grande High School after a cross burning in 2011.

The Diversity Coalition raised money to place a sculpture, Arboring Our Roots of Diversity, in front of Arroyo Grande High School soon after. The words “culture,” “community,” “diversity,” “heritage,” “education,” “peace,” “individuality,” and “unity” surround the base. That tree sculpture’s physical presence and the guest speakers’ presentations raise the bar of awareness for people, Allen said, which is the most an organization can do. The Diversity Coalition also holds quarterly meetings that play host to speakers like Sudanese refugee Joseph Jok and Cal Poly professor Stephen LloydMoffett, who speaks about the origins of religious tolerance. Transgender activist Jessica Lynn will speak at the next meeting, on May 23.

Xavier believes the work the coalition does can be expanded, and the time has come for the organization to grow. No stranger to intolerance or trauma, Xavier enjoys being able to turn his life experiences into action. “From the time I was 3 years old to the time I was 10, I have experienced bullying, which is something we fight against; I experienced racial profiling; I experienced being a refugee; I experienced being kidnapped; I witnessed seven murders. That’s a lot to happen in seven years,” Xavier said. “I have experienced all of these things, so to take the chance to do something about it is amazing.”

Commentary

BY LAMEEKA MCCLELLAN-BRELAND

A different take My family had a great experience with NCI Affiliates

M

y sister has been served at NCI Affiliates for the past seven years. She moved to California with my mother from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to live with me. While living in Oklahoma she was not afforded the opportunity to have sustainable employment and worked at a little restaurant down the street busing tables, making $20 total for the entire week. Her friends consisted of a few people on the block that she lived on, and she and her family did not have much of a social life. Since the move and her becoming a part of the group at NCI Affiliates, I have watched my sister blossom. She makes her own money under sub-minimum wage and has made several close friends. She goes to the movies and the different activities like barbecues, dances, festivals, and Christmas floats that the NCI group puts on for the individuals. My sister is a part of NCI’s client advisory group and even sat on the board of directors for two years. She has become an advocate for the things she wants and believes in and is not afraid to speak out for herself. We are a close family, and we do everything together. We all contribute to family dinners and holiday celebrations. My sister loves the fact that she can contribute when we go shopping for holiday dinners and when she can buy a special gift for my mother on Christmas or for her birthday.

HODIN

I believe in my heart if it were not for the work opportunities at NCI Affiliates, she would not find a place that she could work and be a contributing member of the community she lives in. My sister has a mental disability and with age has taken on some physical disabilities. She takes a while to complete certain things. My fear is that if sub-minimum wage is taken away, she will not have the financial or social outlets that have been available to her through this agency that clearly has her best interest at heart. The Feb. 7 article published in New Times (“Equal Chances: Local families and advocates seek to improve job opportunities for adults with disabilities”) was told on behalf of a family that for some reason is unhappy with NCI and does not see what a difference sub-minimum wage can make in a person’s life. I am glad their family member was able to find a place where she could be happy, but that does not mean that the hundreds of other families, including mine, would like to see sub-minimum wage go away. Nor does it mean that we would like to see an article smearing the agency that has brought new life to our family member. There are always two sides to a story, and I do not believe for one moment that NCI Affiliates would do anything to hurt one of the individuals they serve. They have always treated my sister and our family with respect and have been very kind and understanding. I am sending this to you in hopes that

others do not make a decision regarding this agency based on one family’s story and understand that there are several other families who do not want to see their family member go without this opportunity. ∆ Lameeka McClellan-Breland posted this as a comment in a thread responding to the Feb. 7 article on New Times’ website.

Letters Oso Flaco Lake is worth preserving

California State Parks has proposed a new, southern dune buggy entrance to the off-highway vehicle area at Oso Flaco Lake. This is a disastrous idea—and it undermines the multi-decade efforts of The Nature Conservancy, the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and others in creating the GuadalupeNipomo Dunes Preserve, which protects thousands of acres of rare and pristine dunes that host a multitude of flora and fauna, including the rare snowy plover, least tern, and Western pond turtle. Oso Flaco Lake is an integral part of the preserve, and State Parks’ proposal would not only impair the region’s ecosystem, it would seriously detract from the fishing and hiking experience there, convert 120 acres of agricultural land, and add an offhighway vehicle staging area for increased motorized access to the OHV park. Visit Oso Flaco Lake and see for yourself why this beautiful area is worth preserving. For more information, see oceanodunespwp.com and get your name

on the mailing list—please get involved and help prevent this ecological calamity. Kara A. Woodruff San Luis Obispo

Music education in schools is ‘on key’

The great American composer Leonard Bernstein once said, “Music can name the un-nameable, and communicate the unknowable.” This concept—that exposure to music provides intrinsic value outside of just entertainment—is why schools have long made music education a central part of educating the whole child. While language arts, civics, and STEM education are critical in successfully preparing students for a college or career pathway, music education stands as an equally important and influential component of modern pedagogy. Visual and performing arts provide students with opportunities to explore their creativity, improvisation, and selfexpression, all significant lessons that cannot be extracted from a textbook. Research on the impacts of a musicrich education have continually shown positive developmental benefits for students, such as improved test scores, emotional growth, increased coordination, memorization, pattern recognition, discipline, and neurological development. The month of March offers us the opportunity to acknowledge the unique benefits of music education through the celebration of Music in Our Schools Month. This important acknowledgment of music education is celebrated each year with the help of the National Association for Music Education and provides our schools with the opportunity to highlight the need for expanding these vital programs.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s 2019-20 state budget proposes the largest-ever funding increase for K-12 education in our state’s history. California’s students will receive a record $80.7 billion in funding, dwarfing the recessionary low of $47.3 billion during the 2011-12 fiscal year. This proposed reinvestment in our schools, teachers, and students, will allow for the expansion of music education opportunities for students across the state. Additionally, California recently overhauled its education finance system through the implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula and the Local Control Accountability Plans, which require school districts to involve parents and community members in the decisions they make about how education funds are spent. I encourage those community members who feel strongly about arts and music education in our schools to reach out to your local education leaders with the message that arts funding should continue to be a priority in all our schools.

State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) into the sensitive habitats surrounding Oso Flaco Lake. Kathleen Goddard Jones, Gaylord Jones, Malcolm McCloud, Dirk and Bonnie Walters, Bill Deneen, Norm Hammond, Nancy Mann, and myself worked to oppose that expansion by petitioning State Parks to change its proposed plans. We cited the Local Coastal Plan and studies by the California Department of Fish and Game that recognized the Oso Flaco Lake region as the most sensitive and valuable ecological region in California. Kathleen invited State Parks Director Peter Dangermond down, and he toured the areas of Oso Flaco Lake and the SVRA with State Parks Superintendent Don Patton. At the same time, we organized the first annual Day of the Dunes program of presentations extolling the virtues of saving the natural resources of the area from further off-highway vehicle (OHV) destruction. Apparently, this all worked to

convince the state authorities to shelve the plans and invest a lot of money to save and rehabilitate Oso Flaco Lake and its environs. Fast forward to 2019. I received an email from the Morro Coast Audubon Society that describes almost exactly the same environmentally destructive proposal from the SVRA that we defeated almost 40 years ago. Nothing has changed. Oso Flaco Lake is still the most sensitive and valuable natural habitat in California. OHVs are still as destructive of sensitive resources. The habitat can still not tolerate the planned destruction involved in any of the proposed expansions, access, or camping proposals. Nothing has changed except the passage of time and the dogged pursuit by OHV enthusiasts to invade the Oso Flaco Lake area. I am no longer a young man. Many of the colleagues I worked with to save this region are now gone. But I will not stop my opposition to these thoughtless, inappropriate, environmentally destructive, and expensive proposals. So, I say “NO!” One thousand times “No!” to this moronic obsession with wrecking Oso Flaco Lake. I urge you to support my views with emails to the Oceano Dunes SVRA and other appropriate organizations. It’s not too late to win another one for Oso Flaco Lake.

Say no to Oso Flaco entrance

State Parks proposed to add a campground and off-highway vehicle

(OHV) staging area at the Oso Flaco Lake day-use area to facilitate access to the existing Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA). Better access points to the OHV area would be through the Railroad Avenue, Silver Spur Place, or Callender Road, locations considered in the Pismo State Beach and SVRA general development plan (1975). Converting agricultural land for the project violates the Coastal Act, which aims to “conserve agricultural soils and promote long-term agricultural productivity.” Moreover, the narrow road leading to the proposed campground is a recipe for disaster when RVs meet farm equipment. Widening the road would require additional conversion of agricultural land. Oso Flaco Lake is widely recognized as one of the most scenic natural areas along California’s coast. It currently provides wildlife-dependent recreation such as fishing, wildlife observation and photography, interpretation, and environmental education. A campground/OHV staging area will seriously diminish those recreational opportunities. “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot”—in this case a campground and OHV staging area. And, as Joni Mitchell continues, “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.” Petra Clayton Los Osos LETTERS continued page 17

Opinion LETTERS from page 16

Opposition to illegal immigration isn’t racism As a native Californian and Democrat, I am amazed and deeply disappointed in the perspective that illegal immigration is a manufactured crises. Those who believe this are either severely out of touch with the deleterious effects this issue has had on California or so politically entrenched in the Democratic Party/mainstream media obsession with destroying Trump that they are willing to forsake the best interest of our state. Everyone who came here illegally had the option of honoring our decades-old legal process honored by those seeking U.S. citizenship. To disrespect and disregard our immigration requirements makes a mockery of our laws and those who have come here legally with due diligence. The costs of accommodating these masses is seen in our overwhelmed ERs, classrooms, job opportunities, entitlement programs, as well as drug and human trafficking, crime, and imported diseases (Ellis Island screened for diseases and mental illness). Opposition to this disrespectful behavior is not racism, but rather an attempt to restore the integrity of our socioeconomic fiber. Marc Peters Atascadero

The real deal on becoming climate leaders San Luis Obispo is poised to become one of the most ambitious municipalities when it comes to climate action. Our local Climate Reality Project chapters, Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo County, have emerged to facilitate this action by empowering local residents and students to become active leaders for climate action. Our goals align with forming our communities into a broad coalition of support to make carbon neutrality a reality, and bring new business, investments, and an enhanced quality of life as a result. We have several community members, including students, business owners, political leaders, and community organizers who will be traveling to Atlanta in March for a climate leadership training. They will be trained by former Vice President Al Gore, founder and leader of the global organization. Our mission is to build community consensus around climate policies that proceed from climate resolutions to make sure we achieve set goals and actively include each facet of our community. We are here to support, listen, and act. Find out more at climaterealityslo.org and follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

Take the deal

I

mmediately before and after the Feb. 7 introduction of the Green New Deal resolution by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts), let the record show that the opinion pages of The Tribune and New Times— with the exception of my previous column here and The Shredder’s call to “Make America Less Embarrassing Again!” (Feb. 28)— have been an unrelieved series of attacks on the resolution and the reasons for it. The Trib dutifully reprinted a column from the National Review by noted serious person George Will trashing the Green New Deal. Will has previously touted the prime climate denier myth that the world has not warmed since 1998 and dismissed the news that sea levels are rising as an absurd notion. Conservative pundit Jay Ambrose was given space in which to downplay and dismiss last October’s report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that we have a 12year deadline to avoid the worst effects of global warming. In these pages, local opponents have seized the occasion to unload on renewable energy and the idea that there is a scientific consensus that human activity is driving climate change (“Green unicorns,” Feb. 14, and “Green dreamin’,” Feb. 21).

For readers who would assume from the opinions on view in our local media that articulate advocates capable of making the case for a Green New Deal simply can’t be found, let me recommend David Roberts at Vox (“Green New Deal critics are missing the bigger picture”), Adam Rogers at Wired (“The Green New Deal shows how grand climate politics can be”), Bill McKibben in The New Yorker (“Dianne Feinstein says no to the Green New Deal”), and Justin Talbot Zorn, Ben Beachy, and Rhiana Gunn-Wright in The Guardian (“A Green New Deal is fiscally responsible”). Meanwhile, here are some corrections to recent assertions made in this space by local commentators. In Germany, the percentage of clean energy generated surpassed coal power last year, and the country is on track to shut down all 84 of its coal-fired power plants. If that’s not impressive enough, check out the most recent figures on clean energy generation as a percentage of total energy consumed by Denmark (53.7 percent), Portugal (54.1 percent), Sweden (64.9 percent), Iceland (95.3 percent), and Norway (104.7 percent). Those who continue to argue that we can’t do it over here because “it’s not working over there” are making an argument that, increasingly, isn’t working.

Those still claiming that there is no scientific consensus on human activity as the primary cause of climate change should scan the list of nearly 200 scientific organizations worldwide that have concluded that climate change has been caused by humans; the latest study from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; and this conclusion from the Fifth Assessment Report of the IPCC, the work of hundreds of scientists assessing thousands of scientific papers: “Human influence on the climate system is clear” (Al Fonzi’s inevitable opinion to the contrary notwithstanding). That’s why the Green New Deal does not need defending, just context. Here’s the context: This is an emergency. It has become an emergency because, for the last 30 years, those with a psychological need to deny it or a vested interest in pretending it wasn’t happening—or that it was happening but it was no big deal, and/or it’s the result of causes that have nothing to do with anything we do—have blunted and forestalled the kind of actions that could have been taken incrementally over decades to gradually pull us back from the brink. Now, incrementalism won’t work anymore. Nobody gets to wave a dismissive hand or clutch their pearls and profess shock at a proposal that matches the scale of the problem now facing us. The Green New Deal is not about dreams and unicorns; it’s a rope ladder dropped into a deepening pit. Those disputing the depth of the pit or

suggesting we chip out handholds in the wall with a penknife instead have one thing in common: They don’t have a better idea. And the folks who just passed a tax cut for billionaires that will add nearly $2 trillion to the national debt don’t get to squawk about cost. That proud achievement, as Zorn, Beachy and GunnWright observe, “did little more than enrich stateless mega-corporations and the wealthiest investors,” whereas a Green New Deal “would create millions of jobs with family-sustaining wages for workers whose inflation-adjusted pay hasn’t budged since the 1970s … laying the groundwork for a more vibrant and equitable economy that sustains the communities and physical resources on which our society is built.” And therein lies the genius of the Green New Deal. Beltway pundits, home-grown reactionaries, fossil fuel CEOs, and toocautious politicos don’t like it. Its natural constituency is workers, communities, and people under 30 who can see what’s coming and are able to weigh “how can we afford to?” against “how can we afford not to?” and make the obvious choice. Seldom has history erected a billboard so high and wide with a large blinking arrow labeled “the right side.” Being on that side would be a good idea. #GreenNewDeal. ∆ Andrew Christie is the director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

The Shredder

The blame game L

ooks like we’re still playing the “Is he or isn’t he an illegal alien?” game when it comes to Carlo Alberto Fuentes Flores, 42, accused of raping and murdering Paso Robles resident Nancy Woodrum, 62. You’d be forgiven for asking, “Who gives a shit? Is he guilty or not? Isn’t that what really matters?” Normally the answers would be, “No one should,” “That’s for a judge and jury to decide,” and “Yes, that’s all that matters.” The problem is we live in U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s America where legal status has turned into a political cudgel. Could a tweet from Trump bias a jury pool on the other side of the country? I’m sure he’d like to think so! It certainly appears that defense attorneys for Flores believe a presidential tweet has the power to impede their ability to offer effective counsel to Flores, who did some painting work at Woodrum’s home and was able to lead investigators to her buried body. Seems like those facts would have more bearing on his potential guilt than his legal status. In any case, Flores’ attorneys have requested a gag order because “there is a reasonable risk that the inflammatory nature of the facts in this case combined with the potential for extensive press coverage and poisonous social media commentary necessitate these protective orders.”

The legal filing states, “The present political climate has become toxic for Mexican nationals,” and goes on to quote Trump calling Mexicans “rapists and murderers.” Another filing by the defense attorneys’ expert witness, Bryan Edelman, “co-founder of Trial Innovations Inc., a national full-service jury research firm,” goes into even more detail about Trump’s past anti-Mexican sentiments, and Edelman even quotes a full paragraph from yours truly (The Shredder, “Vexed and Loving It,” Jan. 31), followed by a page or so of social media comments from the community. I don’t know about those local social media commenters, but I feel an overwhelming flood of power going straight to my head! I can taint a potential jury pool? Who knew? I’ve got the power!!! Look, what’s basically happening is Flores’ defense team is trying to keep the press from covering this trial, and neither they nor SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow is willing to actually reveal Flores’ legal status. Why? Because if he’s here illegally, it plays right into Trump’s narrative. If it’s true, though, don’t we—the public paying for the trial— have the right to know? Of course, the real tragedy here is that Flores’ unknown status has turned the entire conversation away from the fact that a sweet, innocent, lovely woman with family, friends, and a business has been

murdered. Thanks to politics, the victim seems to be of little concern, and that’s sickening. Thanks, Trump! Speaking of sickening, politics, and hypocrisy, both 1st District Supervisor John Peschong and 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold seem to have forgotten they’re small government conservatives! In Peschong’s case, neighbors of a planned outdoor and greenhouse medical cannabis farm on York Mountain Road are worried about the 3-acre project, located about 400 feet from their houses, which—by the way—is within the county’s setback rules for pot grows. Neighbors appealed the approved project, citing odor, water use, and security concerns. Now Peschong—who happily supports oil extraction and massive wine grape operations—is suddenly an environmentalist. “There are impacts—visibility, water, neighborhood, air quality, compatibility, road impacts,” Peschong said. “There are too many questions here tonight to move forward … I think both sides here are good people. I believe it needs greater environmental analysis.” Ha, ha, ha! Yeah, OK Mr. Environmentalist. I wonder if 3 acres of grapes—or oil rigs—would have drawn the same concern? In Arnold’s case, she requested that

county staff look into making water well drilling more onerous because she too wants to appease this vocal North County contingent. Aside from the regulated Paso Robles Groundwater Basin area, rural county residents have been free to drill water wells on their property, which seems like a very small government, freedom-first policy. But now she’s ready for staff to draw up cumbersome rules that will affect all county residents! Hypocrisy much? Personally, a few more rules on willynilly well drilling might be a fine idea, but that’s a liberal stance. Arnold has her eye on her third term, but moves like this might set up the feared “third-term curse” in District 5! Voters don’t like flipflopping pols who’ll do and say anything to win another chance to wield power. And the Irony of the Week Award goes to eco-warriors from the Sierra Club and Center for Biological Diversity who turned up to protest the Plains All American Pipeline scoping hearings in Santa Barbara and Arroyo Grande at the end of February with signs saying, “No pipelines! No trucks!” and “Plains Pipeline go home!” They also had a giant whale made of … wait for it … plastic! Um, I love your environmental stance and all, but without oil extraction, your inflatable pool toy prop wouldn’t exist. ∆ The Shredder puts the “hip” into hypocrisy.

day’s lineup but don’t know which one’s in their glass as they taste. “I know whether I’m going to taste a pinot and where it’s from. There is some context … but there’s also still of lot of chance for surprise,” he said. “We try to be as objective as possible.” As for what these reviews might mean for the college’s wines, Kettmann said it’s great publicity no matter the numbers—and Hancock got more than a passing grade. “Generally speaking, it’s a pretty easy way to get attention for your wines,” he said. “It helps to legitimize the [Hancock] program and show people that it’s not a college experiment. It’s real professionals making it. These wines are solidly made wines.”

The winery

T

here it was, atop a column of paragraphs labeled with rankings of 92, 92, 91 in the buying guide of October 2018’s Wine Enthusiast: “91. Allan Hancock 2014 Captain’s Reserve Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara County).” The accompanying description was worth savoring: solid wine. Delicious. Rather rich. Quite opulent but easy to enjoy. Editor’s choice. $18. That review sat amid write-ups of pinot noir from some of the state’s most wellknown and long-established wineries: Tolosa, based in SLO, in the paragraph above with 92 points, priced at more than a hundred bucks. Above that was a Sea Smoke pinot from Sta. Rita Hills at three times Hancock’s price and 92 points. Just underneath the college’s wine, a Russian River Valley pinot was priced at $80. On the facing page, halfway down the column of reviews, sat a second writeup: 90 points, Allan Hancock 2016 pinot noir (Santa Barbara County): “Aromas of muddy earth meet with tart, sour cherry and a hint of sweet sage on the nose of this solid bottling made by students at this community college in Santa Maria.” $18. Hancock, which is one of only three community colleges in the state that can make and sell their own wine, received six more write-ups in Wine Enthusiast’s online buying guide since the October magazine ratings. Most recently, two reviews came on Feb. 1—including the college’s highest score yet: 93 points for the 2016 syrah from the campus vineyard. The notes highlighted the wine’s coolclimate character, “from tar, peppercorn, roasted lamb, and black-currant paste on the nose to a tense palate loaded with cracked pepper, rosemary, and game.

Fresh acidity provides a juicy quality too.” These strong scores have created a buzz for the college wine program and its wares. “The cabernet is down to 10 cases or so. We just sold out of the malbec, and now everyone wants the big-scoring syrah,” Dave Corey, the college’s head of winery operations, said in late February. As of last fall, Hancock wines were available at about four stores in Northern Santa Barbara County. Since November, Corey’s gotten Hancock wines onto the shelves of at least three more Central Coast stores, including Spencer’s Fresh Market in Morro Bay. From a marketing standpoint ratings from magazine reviews, such as Wine Enthusiast, really get people’s attention. “The scores … make it easier to sell,” he said. “I’ve seen an immediate response.” Corey, who also owns CORE Winery in Orcutt, joined Hancock’s winemaking team in mid 2018. While the winemaking program was founded 23 years ago, the college has only been able to sell its campus-made wine since 2014. Now, thanks in part to those recent magazine ratings, Hancock’s program is poised to continue growing alongside the Central Coast’s burgeoning wine industry.

The wine

“I was happily surprised when I tasted the wines that the college submitted,” said Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast’s reviewer for the Central Coast. “I tasted them blind, as is Wine Enthusiast policy, and some of the Allan Hancock College wines scored very well against the best wines that the Central Coast has to offer.” The college wines’ lowest score of 85 translates to “good: suitable for everyday consumption; often good value.” The magazine’s scoring ranges from

20 • New Times • March 7 - March 14, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

“acceptable” at 80 to 82 points, to “very good” at 87 to 89 points, to “excellent” at 90 to 93, and up to the rare “classic” rating at 98 to 100 points, “the pinnacle of quality,” according to the Wine Enthusiast buying guide. Kettmann said that the wines he tasted for the October ratings marked his first experience with the college’s wines, but he’s known Corey since long before he took over Hancock’s wine production. The wines Corey submitted were made under the former Hancock winery manager, Chris Brown. “[Dave] asked if he could send them, and I said of course,” Kettmann said. “We review everything that’s submitted.” It’s free to submit wines, he explained, and there’s no limit. The regional reviewers sample and write up a couple of thousand wines each month from around the world, and they publish maybe 700 in the magazine each month, he said. The rest are posted in the Wine Enthuiast online wine guide. “Personally I review 160 to 300 wines a month,” Kettmann said, explaining that he sips and spits about a dozen a day, first thing in the morning when his palate’s fresh. The magazine’s policy is to conduct single-blind tastes, meaning the reviewers know what wines are in the

Taste for yourself

Around the west side of the Santa Maria campus off of South College Drive, just before entrance No. 6, there’s a blue sign much like all the other blue Hancock signs. Winery, this one says. Blink and you might miss it. After parking in lot 7, look for the industrial gate that slides open to a paved work yard. In this outdoor area on a sunny fall afternoon, Corey stood over two buckets. He had one hand submerged past his wrist in partially squashed green grapes. Torrontes, he said, samples of the Argentinian variety from the campus vineyard just across the street, near the school’s baseball fields. He was checking if they were ready to be harvested. As he rinsed his hand and wiped it, he mentioned that the heat forecast for that weekend would probably ready the last of the grapes in the student vineyard. Harvest is only one aspect of wine production that’s on Corey’s mind. He’s bent on getting the word out about the program, including improving the college winery’s signage. “People have to find us,” he said. He noted that more people—on campus and throughout the community—need to know that this tasting room is there, essentially in their backyard. Corey was hired in June as Hancock’s winery operations manager, which means he heads up all aspects of making wine on campus. “They brought me on here because of my level of success making wine, growing grapes, and my entrepreneurial spirit,” Corey said. He directs and mentors students through every step of the winemaking process, and he’s also in charge of sales, social media, and marketing. “When I got here, there was no social media presence,” Corey said. “I’m trying to create demand before I go out. If you don’t have demand when you go, you’re just throwing things against the wall.” As he ventures out into the community, Corey said he’s been met with some surprise. “I didn’t even know the college had a winery,” he said he hears a lot. He then takes the opportunity to share that Hancock’s community college campus bonded winery—the bonded status is what enables a winery to sell its wine—is the third of its kind in the state, alongside Santa Rosa Junior College and Napa

Allan Hancock College’s campus winery offers flights of four to five wines every Friday afternoon. Varieties include albariño, torrontes, chardonnay, rosé, pinot noir, and syrah, all grown and made on campus. The winery also offers cabernet sauvignon made with fruit donated from Paso Robles. The winery recently released its 2017 Hancock vineyard albariño—it’s a steal at $14 a bottle. And the winery is down to its last 10 cases of its cabernet sauvignon, according to Dave Corey, the college’s head of winery operations. Fans of Hancock’s wine can also join the college’s wine club, which offers six bottles for $80. Across the Central Coast, the college’s wines can be found at Spencer’s Fresh Market in Morro Bay and Santa Maria, Vino et Amici wine bar in Orcutt, the Pacific Coast Club on Vandenberg Air Force Base, Hangar 7 and Liquor Emporium in Lompoc, and Nielsen’s Market in Solvang. The Hancock winery is located in building O, room 211, on the west side of campus, off of South College Drive in Santa Maria. The tasting room is open Fridays from 2 to 6 p.m. For more information, visit hancockcollege.edu/agribusiness.


Community College. Selling the winery’s wares in turn raises funds for the program and grows awareness in the community, which Corey said he hopes will lead to more students enrolling, growing, harvesting, bottling, selling, and so on. Those students who roll up their sleeves from harvest to marketing can then enter the industry with a season or two under their belts. “We’re building a workforce,” he said. Several area wineries have made donations to the campus winery, from

of the college’s life sciences classrooms. Thirteen students of varying ages listened as their professor explained sugar and yeast levels in sparkling wines. Dressed in jeans and work boots with the sleeves of his plaid shirt rolled to his elbows, Koch looked every bit the part of a hands-on instructor. In fact, earlier that morning he’d been harvesting some of the year’s last grapes from the campus vineyard. There in the classroom, he pointed to charts and pictures projected on the screen, highlighting equipment the

big equipment—including an alkalizer, a destemmer, and presses—to bottles, boxes, and even grapes, Corey said. Standing outside Hancock’s winery, Corey looked like he was working in two quite different worlds: On one side of the work yard stood a hand-written sign inviting visitors to “have a good time.” Several picnic benches, a pizza oven, and roses planted in half-barrels were scattered around the north side of the patio. Across the way stood a forklift, at least three types of presses, stainless steel tanks, and industrial bins waiting to be filled with the last of the harvest. For Corey, this—like any working winery—is indeed the meeting of two worlds: production and hospitality. And he’s doing his part to make the outdoor space more of an inviting winery scene. “I want this to be a major spot for tasting groups. The winery has a built-in hosting [quality] that gives us a leg up,” Corey said. “We make 600 cases a year, and realistically we could sell almost all that through the tasting room.” While Corey spoke, instructor Alfredo Koch came through the winery, leading a handful of students. A couple of the students came up to the square vat of fermenting fruit and chatted with Corey about harvest and the grapes’ potential. Koch is the coordinator of the agribusiness/viticulture and enology program. In his softspoken Argentinian accent, he exuded enthusiasm for the winery, the students, and the program he’s worked hard to grow over the past 12 years. “When I came here, there were half the students, half the classes,” he said. “It has really grown.” As he glanced around the winery, he listed several milestones, including obtaining the bonded status in 2014, the Hancock wine club, and a new agreement with a university in Bordeaux where Hancock graduates can earn a French bachelor’s in viticulture and enology.

The classroom

The following week, Koch was finishing up an Intro to Winemaking lecture in one

campus winery has in common with major Champagne producers, which enables the students to try their hands at making sparkling wine. After his lecture, two students stayed in the classroom to talk about their first semester in the viticulture and enology program. Laura Pedrino mentioned that she volunteered earlier that morning alongside Koch and other students during harvest. She said that she’s learning which parts of the wine industry she likes best. So far, her interest was most piqued by the visiting professional who talked about social media and marketing. “I don’t really see myself working out in the vineyard every day, but I like the business aspect,” she said. “I’m starting to have an understanding about wine—while it sounds very romantic— everything that goes behind it, all the hard work and labor.” Pedrino, 32, moved to the Central Coast from LA and works at Saarloos and Sons winery in Los Olivos. She said that after a year in the tasting room, she felt it was time to take the next step and finish a college degree. Knowing that wine is one of the area’s biggest industries, she enrolled in Hancock’s wine program and is working toward the associate degree in wine business. Fellow student Steve McCrank also moved up from the LA area—the day before Hancock’s semester began, he said. He was looking for a second career after working 22 years as a newspaper photographer. “I’d been coming up here doing wine tasting for years; I went to Cal Poly SLO, and I knew the area well,” McCrank said. “We knew this was where we wanted to be … if you want to live up here and work, you go into the wine industry.” He said he was excited to learn about Hancock’s program because the cost is low, and he can earn a certificate to launch him into the industry. Right now, he’s looking into production and winemaking. “I’m using this more to explore and see exactly where I fit in,” said McCrank, who works at Rancho Sisquoc winery. “So far my experience has been great—working and

in school, everybody’s been accepting and easygoing and eager to teach you to move on. It’s like if you work hard, this is the kind of industry that will reward you for that. A lot of places don’t do that anymore.” Koch noted that not only do his students get to venture outside the classroom and roll up their sleeves in a working winery and vineyard, they get the benefit of industry professionals coming into the classrooms—either to stand at the front or sit alongside them. “Many students down here take one or two courses because they need them for work. Many are even the sons and grandchildren of owners of very large wineries in the state who come here to take classes,” Koch said. “Some of the owners have taken one or two classes and ... they share a lot of stories.” While the students and their professor chatted, Dean of Academic Affairs Richard Mahon joined the conversation at one of the science classroom’s long black tables. “It’s nice to have students who have different skills come into the program because while you’re learning about what we teach, you have skills that you can share with other students,” Mahon said. “And that makes the program stronger as well.” Koch said he remembered a few engineers from Vandenberg Air Force Base who took some of his classes and shared with him and other students their expertise about climate. “They make the class interesting,” he said. The instructor himself offers the best of both worlds to his students. Koch grew up in Argentina working in his grandfather’s vineyard in the summers, and he has a master’s in agriculture from Cal Poly, an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh, and a Ph.D. from Davis’ viticulture and enology program—the same doctorate program that Merilark Padgett-Johnson went through before founding Hancock’s viticulture program in 1996. As the community college’s program continues to grow future vintages and vintners alike, its students take with them a well-rounded set of skills wherever they choose to go, according to Koch

and Mahon. With a one-year certificate, students can enter the workforce, and with a two-year associate degree, they can either enter the industry or transfer to a university. “The students who want to go straight into the workforce wind up with more theoretical background and foundation than would otherwise be the case because the courses have to work for transfer [students] as well,” Mahon said. “And the students who want to transfer have more hands-on experience.” “We try to really prepare them to succeed and do well,” Koch said. That support and flexibility are what attracted Pedrino and McCrank to the program, and while both students have come across many people who are familiar with Hancock’s program, they’re looking forward to growing awareness in the community. “I’m excited to see how the winery and tasting room is coming along,” Pedrino said. “I’m excited to see more promotion and getting people to know that this is here and you can come taste the wines that all the students have worked so hard on.” ∆ Associate Editor Andrea Rooks can be reached at arooks@newtimesslo.com.

Strictly Starkey

BY GLEN STARKEY

Twin Cities hip-hop Atmosphere comes to the Fremont Theater

A

tmosphere, a Minneapolis-based hip-hop duo, can lay down some dark, muscular sounds, like “Try to Find a Balance,” about the rough and tumble poser-filled cutthroat rap scene, or “Guarantees,” about the grind of being exploited in a dead-end job. It’s gritty, authentic stuff, but give me their track “Sunshine” instead, please! Their stylish studio-filmed, animationenhanced video for the track opens with a young woman waking up with a hangover: “Ain’t no way to explain or say/ How painful the hangover was today/ In front of the toilet, hands and knees/ Trying to breathe in between the dry heaves/ My baby made me some coffee/ Afraid that if I drink some it’s probably

coming right back out me.” It’s a Digable Planets-style jazzy track with simple piano, light programmed drum track, and a little synth, with words by Slug (Sean Daley) and production by Ant (Anthony Davis), and it quickly turns from hangover misery to optimism: “All of a sudden, I realize something/ The weather is amazing, even the birds are bumpin’/ Stood up and took a look and a breath/ And there’s that bike that I forgot that I possessed/ Never really seen exercise as friendly/ But I think something’s telling me to ride that 10 speed/ The brakes are broken, it’s alright/ The tires got air and the chain seems tight/ Hopped on and felt the summertime/ It reminds me of one of them Musab lines like// Sunshine, sunshine, it’s fine/ I feel it in my skin, warming up my mind/ Sometimes you gotta give in to win/ I love the days when

carnival-style act will have you bumping. Even more exciting (in my book) is a show at Pozo Saloon on Saturday, March 9, in the field in back of the building, which means it will be canceled if there’s rain. But last I checked, this Friday is sunny and Saturday is just cloudy, so head out and see Cody Canada & The Departed and Micky & The Motorcars in the afternoon (1 p.m.; all ages; $20 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $25 at the gate). Good Medicine’s Todd Newman said this one was going to be “very family oriented. Throw a blanket on the grass and kick back.” Instead of putting the bands on the giant Pozo stage, they’re bringing in a smaller stage for a more intimate show. Should be fun! Plus, you can mack down on killer Pozo Saloon barbecue while you listen to some great Americana roots rock! Finally, Vancouver’s kilts and bagpipe Scottish punk band The Real McKenzies play The Siren on Tuesday, March 12 (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $12 presale at Boo Boo’s or ticketfly.com. or $13 at the door), with the Texas punk act Piñata Protest opening. Sounds like a hoot and a good liver warm-up for St. Paddy’s Day.

Indie darlings

Most brand new bands don’t get to debut on national television, but Better Oblivion Community Center isn’t just any band. It’s co-fronted by Phoebe Bridgers (boygenius) and Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, The Faint),

which is why they wound up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CBS This Morning, even though they only released their debut album in January. Better Oblivion Community Center plays the Fremont on Monday, March 11 (8 p.m.; all ages; $33.17 at Boo Boo’s or fremontslo.com), with Sloppy Jane and Christian Lee Hutson opening. Oberst and Bridgers met in 2016 when she played a “secret showcase” he hosted at LA’s Bootleg Theater, and then he collaborated with her on the duet “Would You Rather” from her 2017 solo album, Stranger in the Alps. Boom! They discovered they jelled, and the rest is indie rock history. Dance and electronic act Droeloe also plays the Fremont, on Friday, March 8 (9 p.m.; 18-and-older; $24.96 presale at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com), with Kidwaste opening.

SACRED SOUNDS To Wake You—Mark Davis and Karoline Hausted—invite you to be a part of their live recording, on March 9, in Laurel Lane Studios. Tickets are very limited!

developed and performed this unique set of traditional and original materials with piano, harp, guitar, percussion, and spoken word,” Mark Davis and Karoline Hausted wrote on their website. “The concert is meant to be a shared, communal experience, and so we have decided we would like to record it with an audience present and participating— there is some easy group singing in the finale. Please come and be part of the magic as we capture it!” Go for it!

More music …

There’s tons of more good stuff this week, including Painted Sky Concert

Series’ evening of Celtic harpist and raconteur Patrick Ball this Saturday, March 9 (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $20 at Boo Boo’s, Ball & Skein, or (805) 927-8330). Ball has nine instrumental and three spoken-word albums. “In playing the ancient, legendary brass-strung harp of Ireland and performing marvelous tales of wit and enchantment, he not only brings new life to two cherished traditions, but blends them in concert to create ‘a richly theatrical and hauntingly beautiful performance,’” press materials read.

“Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, we have something special down here at Birdland this evening,” Pee Wee Marquette intones in the introduction of the classic recording of the Art Blakey Quintet, “A Night At Birdland.” Then he mentions that when the audience claps, it will become part of the live recording. Well, stop the presses, people, because here’s your chance to become part of another live recording. Folk duo To Wake You will be making a live in-studio recording of their Winter and Sacred Tree Concert on Saturday, March 9, at 7 p.m. in SLO’s Laurel Lane Studios ($20 to $40 at towakeyou.com). “For the past two years, we have

showcase of the 2019 winners of the Young Jazz Scholarship Program on Sunday, March 10, in Unity Concert Hall (4 p.m.; all ages; free). Since 1983, the program has awarded scholarships to talented and deserving students from local schools. This year’s recipients are brothers Kadin and Tarek Hariri (Arroyo Grande High School), Michael Lanier (San Luis Obispo High School), and Cuesta College’s Luke Gibson, Noah Nelson, and Gillian Piper. Adam Levine (guitar), Ken Hustad (bass), and Jim Stromberg (drums) will accompany them.

They may be best known for their collaboration with Paul Simon on his 1986 album, Graceland, but on their own they’re an amazing world music act with five Grammy Awards, including Best World

Music Album for their 2017 Shaka Zulu Revisited release. A free pre-concert lecture will be led by Cal Poly language professor Brian G. Kennelly, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Pavilion.

Metalheads unite!

“We’re taking back the Central Coast by force!” Krystal Otis of locally produced Hail Yourself! Metalzine wrote. “Originally birthed by Matt Carney in 2001, with contributions made by Steve Jenkins, and later succeeded by Dylan Wordeman (aka Softwaffle), Slaytanic Carnage was an extreme metal radio station on KCPR.” Now, Hail Yourself! has resurrected the show as a podcast that you can tune into whenever you want! “Our first guest, Matt Harvey of EXHUMED, will deliver our first 30-minute segment with his choice cuts of brutality, including announcements on upcoming Central Coast metal shows,” Otis added. Visit soundcloud.com/ hailyourselfmetalzine/slaytanic-carnageepisode-1 for the podcast. “We’re recording episode 2 on March 14 (due for release the following week), and that one will have a big show announcement for April,” Otis finished. ∆

Community Foundation announces ballet scholarship recipient

The Community Foundation of SLO County announced Grace Shirley as this year’s recipient of the Jennifer Thoma Memorial Ballet Scholarship. Shirley, 15, is an honors student at Templeton Independent High School and plans to use the $2,500 scholarship to attend the Alonzo King Lines Ballet’s intensive summer program in San Francisco from July 8 to Aug. 2. She currently studies ballet at SLO Movement Arts Center. “I am very grateful to have been chosen,” Shirley said in a press release. “I appreciate that they have recognized my growth over the years and thank them for helping me to achieve my goals.” The scholarship is named after Jennifer Thoma, a longtime SLO resident who passed away from cancer in 2012. Her husband, Bill Thoma, and their two children, Jeff and Jessica, established the scholarship to honor her passion for dance. The scholarship has been awarded to nine dancers total since its inception. “My wife devoted herself to dance in so many ways,” Bill said in the release. “She would be so proud that her dream became reality and honored such deserving dancers.” More information on the Jennifer Thoma Memorial Ballet Scholarship is available online at cfsloco.org.

SLO Girl Scouts organize book drive

Four members of Girl Scout Troop 70452 in SLO—Tess Bolster White, Katie Geise, Katya Harris, and Aggie Moody—organized a book drive to benefit Liz and Dan Krieger, who donate books to local elementary schools and host periodic book events, and the SLO Library’s Teen Room. Those interested in donating new or gently used books (for ages 8 to 17) or Barnes & Noble or Amazon gift cards can find donation bins at various schools in SLO, including Laguna Middle School and C.L. Smith Elementary School. Visit everybodyreads-slo. com for more info. The book drive ends on March 31.

oy meets girl. Boy gets diagnosis. Boy and girl fall madly in love and try to navigate the new normal. It’s not your typical story arc, where one romantic lead gets tragically sick and either dies or magically recovers, but that’s what made this narrative interesting to San Luis Obispo native Hannah Marks and her writing partner, Joey Powers. “We had been trying to come up with a new thing to write, and we both love The Graduate and how when it ends. It’s like, what next? So we wanted to do a cancer love story like that,” Marks told New Times. The end result is the duo’s feature film, After Everything, which Marks and Powers co-wrote and co–directed. It tells the story of what happens when Elliot (Jeremy Allen White, Shameless), a brash 23-year-old living carefree in New York City, meets the sensible Mia (Maika Monroe, Greta, It Follows) and receives a damning diagnosis all in the same week. As the couple’s love blossoms amid the chaos of his treatment, they discover that Elliot’s illness is not the real test of their relationship—it’s everything else. After Everything debuted its theatrical release at 20 theaters in the U.S. in October, and will now show at the SLO Film Festival at the Fremont Theater on March 17. Marks got her start as a child

After Everything will show at the SLO Film Festival March 17 at the Fremont Theater following the closing night awards at 6 p.m. General admission for the film and award ceremony is $15; students get in for $12.

actor in productions such as Stages, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and To Kill a Mockingbird at the SLO Repertory Theatre, just blocks away from the Fremont. “I’m really honored to have it play at the Fremont,” Marks said. “It’s one of my favorite theaters of all time and in my hometown.” While Marks got her start onstage and began working as a professional actor at age 11, she changed her focus to writing and directing as a young adult when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry. “Acting will always be my first love, but, really, I’ve always loved movies, so as long as it’s something I’m excited about,” she said. Leading up to writing After Everything, Marks and Powers took inspiration from films like 50/50 and The Fault in Our Stars, which also star a romantic lead with a deadly diagnosis. “We’re both kind of hypochondriacs and neurotic, so getting sick is something we think about a lot,” Marks said. “So it felt ripe for our talents as writers. I’m hoping that people feel like they’ve

seen something real and honest. I hope that it moves people.” Marks’ next project—directing Turtles All The Way Down, based on the young adult novel by John Green, for Fox—is expected to debut sometime in 2020. At 25 years old, Marks is one of the youngest female studio directors in history. Marks urges other young people looking to break into the industry

to be tenacious and to create their own content and projects to write, act, and direct in. “Don’t give up,” Marks said. “Persistence is important. You get so much rejection in this business. You have to make stuff happen for yourself.” Δ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley is a sucker for love stories. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com. PHOTOS COURTESY OF HANNAH MARKS

e was just a little guy, tucked away discreetly among the wheat. While others might see a humble, lowly creature in the grasshopper, artist Millicent Sabin instead sees an audacity that’s rather admirable, some might even say brave. Sabin’s work, along with the works of other members of the Paso Robles Art Association, is currently on display at the Studios on the Park gallery, as part of the Valiant exhibit. The show focuses on heroes that come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The art captures the valiant figures that inspire us and also give us hope. Sabin’s acrylic and ink painting, And He Gave Their Crops To The Grasshopper, includes a stunningly bold medley of vibrant yellows and greens that pop with a black ink outline and features a single grasshopper making his way through a bunch of leafy crops. “A grasshopper is a valiant little bug to eat all of those crops,” Sabin said.

“It’s actually a quote from the Bible, in Psalms, when God sent grasshoppers to eat the crops so that Pharaoh would let God’s people go from Egypt.” Sabin said she has been creating art since she was old enough to pick up a pencil. She was never terribly academic as a student and took refuge in being creative when she was drawing and painting. “Art class was a place where you could do something different,” she said. “It wasn’t right or wrong.” While Sabin stepped away from her art for a time when she was busy raising children or working as a Christian education director, art now has a bigger focus in her life. And He Gave Their Crops To The Grasshopper took Sabin about 10 hours to complete. Sabin takes much of her inspiration from biblical stories and from using bold colors. She describes her work as stylistic. “It’s definitely not typical,” she said. “I love lots of color.” A fellow artist friend once told Sabin that “your work is really different, don’t stop doing it.” So Sabin continues to stick to her own artistic vision when she creates her pieces. Ultimately, Sabin said that she hopes her work might connect with others on a deep, spiritual level when they see it. “I’m always hoping that people will see something that is a Bible verse or something that will lead them to God,” she said. “That they’ll enjoy it, the color, and the way that it blends. It’s just something different.” ∆ Send your arts story tips to Arts Writer Ryah Cooley at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

Colorado, surrounded by her family and numerous furry friends. Donna was born Sept. 8, 1941, in Glendale, California; and was a true California girl, literally growing up on the hill where the Hollywood sign exists, and spending her teen years at Zuma Beach. After graduating from Birmingham High School in 1959, Donna headed to the University of Colorado in Boulder. At CU she met Alan “Skip” Godfrey; they married in 1961, and then Skip was transferred back to active duty with the Marine Corps in California— not exactly the California where Donna grew up—but Twentynine Palms in the Mojave Desert. In 1963 her daughter, Chris, was born, and in 1965 they all headed back to Boulder to finish their degrees. As they settled in Boulder and Broomfield, Donna was able to stay home with Chris. In 1973, Skip declared it was time to move to a smaller town, and they all headed to Durango, Colorado, with no job or house, just a bunch of new camping equipment and a 100-pound Malamute. While being tranquilized for the road trip to Durango, Donna’s cat Tyrone ran off and passed out in a gutter. Fortunately a friend found him and he was flown to Durango a few months later, avoiding the road trip and the tent. After building a beautiful new home in Broomfield a few years prior, Donna was a bit unsure of this new adventure, but she tackled it with an open mind. The first month in Durango was spent in a tent in the beautiful Hermosa Valley along the Animas River, making many great memories. Once they moved from the tent to a house, Donna went to work at a local accounting firm and remained there until she left Durango. Donna and Skip divorced in 1978 but remained dear friends. Donna made some great friends in Durango and was able to do a lot of traveling with them over the years. In 1987, Donna decided she was sick of the snow and cold and moved back to California, visiting many towns along the coast before settling in San Luis Obispo. In 1990, Donna started working at New Times as the business manager and remained there until she retired in 2013. In 2016 Donna decided to move back to Colorado to be close to family. She visited snow sculptures in minus-10-degree weather in Breckenridge; had a bear outside her cabin at Alexandra and Joshua’s wedding in Redstone; watched Alena graduate from CSU; and best of all, formed a sweet bond with her great-granddaughter, Wyatt. She spent a lot of time with family and friends watching (and cursing) many Broncos games and just spending time together. Donna is survived by her daughter Christine Beard, granddaughters Alexandra Devereaux (Joshua) and Alena Beard, great-granddaughter Wyatt Sterling Devereaux, and her beloved kitties, Jake and Simba. Donna had many names— Gramma Donna, Gma D, G-Don—but once she became a great-gramma she was GG to all: Great(est) Gramma. We will all miss her tell-it-like-it-is, funny, kind, and generous spirit.

o-writer/director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, The Good Thief) helms this horror mystery about lonely widow Greta Hideg (Isabelle Huppert), who’s befriended by Frances McCullen (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young woman who finds Greta’s purse on the subway and returns it. What begins as a friendly relationship turns dark as Frances realizes that Greta is evil. (98 min.)

Glen Isabelle Huppert, who was terrific in Paul Verhoeven’s 2016 rape revenge flick, Elle, is creepily amazing here as the titular character, Greta, a lonely woman with a murky past who lives in a small apartment tucked away behind what appears to be an abandoned building. If you’ve seen the trailer, it’s giving nothing away to say she seems to lure in unsuspecting good Samaritans like Frances, whose naiveté makes her a perfect mark. It seems everyone can see Greta is up to no good except Frances, who even fends off warning from her best friend and roommate Erica (Maika Monroe). Erica tells her that it’s weird in Manhattan to befriend some lonely old woman Frances knows nothing about. Frances, ever trusting, starts to spend time with Greta but finally realizes she’s not what she seems when she finds a cabinet full of identical purses to the one she found and returned. What follows is Frances’ attempt to end the budding relationship, which turns the film into

PEEKABOO! Greta (Isabella Huppert) seems like a lonely but harmless old lady, but she’s got deep, dark secrets and a deadly touch.

a stalker thriller. While Moretz as sweet-but-foolish Frances does her best to keep up with Hubbert, she can’t quite manage it, coming off as unnaturally weak and vulnerable. Frances is younger, bigger, and stronger than Greta, and when things eventually turn physical, it seems implausible that Frances doesn’t simply overpower the older, frailer woman. The film generates a dark vibe, is well filmed, and is watchable, but without Hubbert’s performance, there would be little to recommend it, aside from its Sapphic subtext, which I’ll let some Queer Studies grad student explore. Anna Hubbert is in full force, and her dark and twisty Greta is a bone-chilling character. She’s definitely the one keeping the audience’s eyes locked on screen. Frances is the perfect target for her games, both beautiful and full of wideeyed innocence—the young woman falls fast for a taste of maternal love after her own mother’s death a year ago. While she’s at first defensive of the mysterious French woman, once Greta’s little “trick” to make friends is revealed, Frances is royally creeped-out. Instead of letting her newfound friend go, Greta doubles down on her obsession with Frances, stalking her at work, following Erica around, and generally just giving Frances and everyone around her the heebie-jeebies. This film definitely isn’t for everyone. If you don’t like a film that carries a general sense of unease, this one may make your stomach turn. Personally, I like a dark, twisted character full of secrets and intrigue, and Greta fits that bill to a tee. Why Frances was unable to overpower her is a pretty gaping problem, and plenty of times I wanted to yell out at the screen, “What are you doing?!?” But, in the end, the story is more Greta’s than Frances’, and, boy, is it a wild ride. Glen I too wanted to yell at the screen, like when Frances rides her bike to Greta’s and leaves it out front unlocked. “Your bike’s going to get stolen, dummy! This is New York City!” Obviously, director Jordan isn’t interested in realism. It’s all about atmosphere. Greta’s apartment, for instance, is small

and dark, and filled with photos of her husband and daughter and the piano on which she plays classical music. There’s a touch of Hitchcock in the space as well as some marvelous foreshadowing. When Frances first brings Greta’s purse and is invited in for coffee, banging on the wall behind the piano leads Greta to yell at the ostensibly loud neighbor making noise to show some courtesy, “Quiet, please!” Only much later do we discover the real source of the noise. When the stalking starts, Greta seems to know her rights, and even when Frances calls the police, Officer Deroy (Thaddeus Daniels) makes it clear that it’s not against the law for Greta to stand outside the window of the restaurant where Frances is a server and stare menacingly inside at her. Thanks to private investigator Brian Cody (Stephen Rea, who’s appeared in many of the director’s films), we eventually learn Greta’s backstory, which helps explain her aberrant behavior. Cody, hired by Frances’ worried father, Chris (Colm Feore), eventually tracks Greta to her apartment, and we start to believe she’ll finally be caught, but that’d be too easy for a Jordan film. Instead, the ending comes as a surprise, and the story’s outcome is anyone’s guess right until the end. If you’re a fan of thrillers, head to the theater. I didn’t love it, but I’m glad I saw it. Anna: I really enjoyed the detail of the ambiance Jordan created. Greta’s place is full of dark nooks and crannies—

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL

ARCTIC

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Galaxy Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi, Spy Kids, Sin City, Planet Terror) directs Rosa Salazar as Alita, a half-human, halfadvanced cyborg, who finds vengeance for the people of the post-apocalyptic world, Iron City, while finding out about her past. The movie is a live-action film adaptation of Gunnm, the Japanese cyberpunk manga series by Yukito Kishiro, also known as Battle Angle Alita in its English translated versions. Alita is filled with action sequences that make us all feel good about sticking it to the man, or literally slicing the bad guys in half, but the plot’s delivery falls short.

Galaxy, The Palm Newcomer Joe Penna directs Mad Mikkelsen as Overgård, a man stranded in the arctic and faced with the decision to leave the safety of his camp and embark on a deadly journey to save himself and another survivor. What this film lacks in dialogue is abundant in emotion and action. The film really focuses on telling a story by the characters’ reaction to this white, deserted land, rather than having the characters give us the play-by-play. We’re first introduced to Overgård as he’s shoveling snow and instantly we know something is wrong because he’s using a makeshift shovel and he looks weathered.

The alarm on his watch goes off and he turns it off, collects his things, and walks over to a plane that he uses as his camp. The next shot is an aerial view, which shows that he’s shoveled out the letters “SOS” in the hopes of flagging down a plane. Overgård’s backstory is unknown. Why is he out there, how did his plane crash, and how long has he been stranded? I can guess a good chunk of time, as he’s missing some toes due to frostbite—creepy. What’s certain is how prepared he is for survival. He has a pretty rigid schedule and is held accountable by his watch. He shovels fresh powder out of his distressed signal; he tends to his waterhole and catches fish; and he climbs a high peak to crank his radio system in the hopes of catching a signal—grim clockwork.

mysterious, just as she is. Frances and Erica’s loft is large and airy, but with that a vulnerability is created—it feels like they’re living in a fishbowl. Before things really go haywire, Frances attempts to piece together the truth behind Greta’s facade, and after finding a bunch of letters marked “Return to Sender” in Greta’s garbage with her daughter’s name and a Brooklyn address, she tries her own hand at P.I. work, tracking down the woman Greta claims is in Paris. When she finally meets up with her mysterious contact, the truth behind Greta’s life is murkier than ever. One thing is clear— she needs to get away from this woman and fast, but every attempt just brings more drama from the frantic, obsessive Greta. I didn’t know what to expect next from her, and my guess is that’s what the filmmaker wanted. There’s a pretty clever dream sequence that offers an alternate path, one much more desirable. Once I realized that reality was indeed false, the intense sense of dread set in and I knew a neat, happy ending was not in sight. In a world where niceties are cherished, Greta is a cautionary reminder that sometimes it’s best just to let the police handle found objects. You never know what the ‘sweet’ French lady who left it behind has up her sleeve. ∆ Split Screen is written by New Times Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

Wait ’til Netflix has it NOTHING ........ Don’t waste your time is!—a helicopter emerges. Unfortunately, the helicopter decides to be the hero in the middle of a blizzard and bluntly crashes into the snow right before Overgård’s eyes. Instead of falling into despair, Overgård takes in the moment and moves on, racing to the helicopter to save any survivors. The pilot is dead but his second in command, a woman (Maria Thelma Smáradóttir), is conscious with a large gash on her stomach. Overgård takes her and some supplies he finds back (packages of ramen and a burner among other things, score!) to his plane and tends to her wound, but the woman is in a coma. He studies a map that he found in the helicopter and discovers there’s a seasonal station in the area but it’s a more than three-day trek. Overgård knows neither he nor the woman will survive if he stays put and waits for help, so with the few supplies

he has, he straps her onto a sled and pulls her through the perils of the arctic. The film really does an amazing job at keeping the audience on the edge of their seats and feeling really guilty about complaining about the cold weather— ridiculous Californians. The silent vow that Overgård has made to keep this woman alive and the subtle moments of human interaction he has with her are really what makes this film so captivating. Mikkelsen delivered a strong performance as an isolated man that hasn’t lost his wit or his ability to feel compassion even though he’s lost it all. (98 min.) —Karen

While Saraya starts to doubt herself and her ability to make it into the WWE, her brother Zak is stuck back in England with his girlfriend and a new baby. Meanwhile, her parents are beaming with pride and don’t realize she’s on the verge of quitting. It’s a classic sports underdog story. These kind of feel-good stories can easily slide into corniness and predictability, but Merchant—who in addition to co-writing and directing plays Zak’s girlfriend’s uptight father, Hugh— keeps the tale fresh.

Restaurant romance

The couple that just opened Sidewalk Café got their start serving up famous clam chowder near the beach

O

n one rainy day in 2004—not so different from the ones we’ve had lately—a high school senior stepped into Splash Café in Pismo Beach. “I was so nervous, it was my first job ever,” Kacey Collins said. “He was in the kitchen cooking.” The “he” that she’s referring to is Brett

Collins. He grew up in Arroyo Grande, and she grew up in San Luis Obispo. He was just a young surfer who would roll into work with his surfboard, after riding the waves in Pismo. And he’s now her husband of 11 years. They’ve had three kids together since that first day on the job and recently realized a dream they’ve

@flavorslo

SO FRESH AND SO CLEAN Menu items at the Sidewalk Café in the Arroyo Grande Village are made to order from scratch—and you’ve got options. For instance, this hot Ahi Whaler sandwich came with a choice of fries, salad, or coleslaw.

LUNCH RUSH Sidewalk Café’s Asian chicken salad comes with cabbage, carrots, green onions, cilantro, almonds, and chicken and is tossed in a sesame ginger dressing and topped with crispy wonton strips.

BREKKIE Scrambles are served daily at the Sidewalk Café between 8 and 10:30 a.m.

After purchasing the old Alphy’s Broiler in the Arroyo Grande Village, the Collinses opened Sidewalk Café in January. “It’s a total love story,” Kacey said. “We worked together probably for a year when we first started dating.” Together, Brett and Kacey helped open Splash Café’s second location, the artisan bakery on Monterey Street in San Luis Obispo. Together, they opened and closed shop, pushed through the busy times, and sometimes worked double shifts. Eventually Kacey moved on to other pursuits, going to school for a job in the medical field and then becoming a stay-at-home mom for the last four years.

It’s been open for several weeks “We really pride ourselves on where now and serving breakfasts, sandwiches, we come from,” Kacey said. “We watched and were trained at Splash, looking at the salads, and tacos.

FLAVOR from page 70

The Cali-style tacos are made with a fresh citrus salsa and jicama baja slaw— topped with chipotle sauce, of course. The chowder is made from a special recipe on loan from the Collinses’ friends over at Splash. On a rainy, cold day, the hot Reuben sando is Kacey’s favorite. For Brett, though, it’s the fire burger: bacon, grilled jalepenos, lettuce, tomato, onion ring, and that barbecue/chipotle sauce. Even though things are still new at the Sidewalk Café, Kacey said they’ve been pleasantly surprised with the response. “It’s actually a really big community, a really tight-knit community at that,” she said. “And they keep coming back and trying new things, talking about the menu.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham is salivating over loaded tater tots. Send your delicious and delightful tidbits to clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

NEWS NIBBLES ONE DOOR CLOSES Say goodbye: Oh boy. This tidbit of information is a major bummer for San Luis Obispo—Fromagerie Sophie is closing on Saturday, March 16, so visit this downtown European-style cheese paradise while you still can. The downtown shop’s owners, Sophie and Paul Doering, announced the decision on March 3, saying that after five years of business, they are looking to achieve a better work-life balance and to spend more time with their families. Select items will be discounted until the doors close, and the final Cheese of the Month pick-up for members will be on March 12 (get your cheese on at 1129 Garden St.).

Eat up: SLO is getting another sandwich shop! Ike’s Love & Sandwiches is opening its first location in San Luis Obsipo (and 57th location overall) at 1028 Chorro St. On Friday, March 8, Ike’s is celebrating its grand opening, and the first 50 customers through the door will receive one free sandwich. Bubblegum Alley is getting a sandwich named after it, with fried chicken, Asian zest sauce, and pepper jack. Another unique-to-SLO sandwich Ike’s is introducing on Chorro is the Thank You for Not Smoking, a vegetarian option with vegan chicken, Asian zest sauce, and pepper jack. Apparently zesty sauce and zesty cheese make things oh so SLO (visit loveandsandwiches.com to check out the menu) … In case you missed it: El Pollo Loco now has a location in SLO. It’s slinging that famous fire-grilled chicken next to Target. You can experience love at first bite with three new enchilada happy birthday platters available for a limited time at delicious fruit 11982 Losdesign® Osos Valley Road! … Granada Hotel and Bistro opened an “intimate cocktail experience” called Nightcap. It’s a cocktail lounge featuring cocktails, bites, edible.com and sipping spirits (open from 5 to 11 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturdays, granadahotelandbistro.com).

TEAM GREEN Beer me: ’Tis the season of the leprechaun, clovers, and a very American celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland (and an excuse to drink Guinness and eat lots of corned beef and cabbage). And while most of San Luis Obispo will brave the early morning to stumble out of their favorite bar (read: church) before noon on Sunday, March 17, a few will choose to celebrate a day early with Zest It Up’s Cooking and Crafting with Beer for St. Patrick’s Day Workshop on Saturday, March 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. The interactive workshop is all about cooking with Firestone Walker beer, and the menu includes beer pub cheese and pretzels, slow beer-braised short ribs, homemade sour beer pickles, a fudgy stout brownie, and a beer ice cream float. Tickets are $65 and include all the necessary crafting supplies to leisurely create a wall-mounted beer opener as you check out and/or participate in the cooking demo (tickets are available at my805tix. com; guests should be over 21 years old) … Early bird tickets for the Avocado Margarita Street Festival in Morro Bay are on sale now. Until March 15 at 11:59 p.m., you can get tickets for $5, which come with two chances to enter the Year Supply of Avocados raffle for no additional cost! AvoMargFest 2019 takes place on Saturday, Sept. 7 (avomargfest.com). ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham thinks green beer is gross beer. Send tips, takes, and tasty tattles to clanham@newtimesslo.com.

D INE ’N’ DISH I’m screamin’

There’s something about the rain that gives me a hankering for ice cream. I know it sounds weird, but stay with me. When you feel those cold drops of water on your face and the sweet chill of frozen cream on your tongue, it’s like you’re breaking all of the rules and running away to childhood. All that matters is that cold stuff scooped into a ball on top of the cone (I’m a fan of the waffle cone), and trying to eat it all before it drips down your hand. So toss out that plan to have soup for lunch and treat yourself to a walk in the rain with a trip to McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams on Monterey Street in SLO. For 70 years, McConnell’s has been serving up its rich, velvety flavored creams—elsewhere. It’s about time that San Luis Obispo got a little bit of that soft magic. With ice creams made completely from scratch and local, grass-grazed dairy, I’m 100 percent down with what they’re putting out in the world. I walked down there the other day and grabbed a scoop of Turkish Coffee for lunch. No regrets, people. If you’re extra ice cream crazy, you can join their Pint of the Month Club and receive three pints per month of three different flavors that ship on the third Monday of each month. I, for one, prefer the walk. You can slip in, slip out, and get into that rhythm of footsteps on the sidewalk as your tongue buries itself in a fresh scoop and the flavors release you from all of that adulting going on in your life. Get scoops, pints, and other tasty ice cream things at 868 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo, Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham is ready to be a kid again.

Copies are available at the Office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors or at the DIR website, http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD. Federal funds are being used on this project, and therefore, the Davis-Bacon Act (2 CFR part 200 Appendix II(D) and 29 CFR Part 5) apply. The Federal minimum wage rates for this project as predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor are set forth in the Special Provisions.

Affirmative Action Requirements 1.

The offeror’s or bidder’s attention is called to Article 18.10, “Equal Opportunity Requirements” of Section 00700, “Standard General Conditions”, and Section 00530, “Standard Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Construction Contract Specifications”, in this Project Manual.

2.

These goals are applicable to all the Contractor’s construction work (whether or not it is Federal or federally assisted) performed in the covered area. If the Contractor performs construction work in a geographical area located outside of the covered area, it shall apply the goals established for such geographical area where the work is actually performed. With regard to this second area, the Contractor also is subject to the goals for both its federally involved and nonfederally involved construction. The Contractor’s compliance with the Executive Order No. 11246 and the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4 shall be based on its implementation of the Equal Opportunity Clause, specific affirmative action obligations required by the specifications set forth in 41 CFR 60- 4.3(a), and its efforts to meet the goals. The hours of minority and female employment and training must be substantially uniform throughout the length of the contract, and in each trade, and the contractor shall make a good faith effort to employ minorities and women evenly on each of its projects. The transfer of minority or female employees or trainees from Contractor to Contractor or from project to project for the sole purpose of meeting the Contractor’s goals shall be a violation of the contract, the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR part 60-4. Compliance with the goals will be measured against the total work hours performed. 3.

The Contractor shall provide written notification to the Director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs within 10 days of award of any construction subcontract in excess of $10,000 at any tier for construction work under the contract resulting from this solicitation.

The bidder must have either a Class A license or a combination of class C licenses that make up a majority of the work at the time the Contract is awarded (Public Contract Code § 3300). When the bidder holds a combination of Class C licenses, all work to be performed outside of the bidder’s license specialties, except work that is incidental or supplemental to the licenses of the bidder, shall be performed by licensed Subcontractors in compliance with the Subletting and Subcontracting Fair Practices Act (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 4100) of Part 1 of Division 2 of the Public Contract Code) Pursuant to Public Contract Code section 1771.1: • A Contractor or Subcontractor shall not be qualified to bid on, be listed in the Bid Proposal, subject to the requirements of Section 4104 of the Public Contract Code, or engage in the performance of this public works project, unless currently registered with the Department of Industrial Relations and qualified to perform work pursuant to Labor Code section 1725.5. It is not a violation of this section for an unregistered contractor to submit a bid that is authorized by Section 7029.1 of the Business and Professions Code or by Section 10164 or 20103.5 of the Public Contract Code, provided the contractor is registered to perform public work pursuant to Section 1725.5 at the time the contract is awarded. • This Project is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Industrial Relations. The DBE (Disadvantaged Business Enterprise) Contract goal is 5.0 percent. For the federal training program, the number of trainees or apprentices is 1. Bids must be submitted under sealed cover plainly marked as a bid and identified with the project number, the date and time for receipt of sealed bids, and the name of the bidder. Bids must be accompanied by cash, a certified or cashier’s check, or a bidder’s bond in favor of the County in an amount not less than ten percent (10%) of the submitted total Bid. Pursuant to Public Contract Code section 22300, the successful bidder may substitute certain securities for funds withheld by County to ensure performance under the Contract or, in the alternative, request the County to make payment of retention to an escrow agent.

Bidders must take necessary and reasonable steps to ensure that DBEs have opportunity to participate in the Contract (49 CFR 26). Pursuant to section 1770 et seq. of the California Labor Code, the Contractor and all Subcontractors shall pay not less than the prevailing rate of per diem wages as determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations and comply with all applicable Labor Code provisions, which include, but are not limited to the employment of apprentices, the hours of labor, and the debarment of Contractors and Subcontractors. The Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations determines the general prevailing wage rates. Copies are available at the Office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors or at the DIR website, http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD. Federal funds are being used on this project, and therefore, the Davis-Bacon Act (2 CFR part 200 Appendix II(D) and 29 CFR Part 5) apply. The Federal minimum wage rates for this project as predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor are set forth in the Special Provisions. If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the prevailing wage rates determined to be applicable to this contract by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and Subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. Notice of Requirement for Affirmative Action 1. The offeror’s or bidder’s attention is called to the “Equal Opportunity Clause” and the “Standard Federal Equal Employment Specifications” set forth herein. 2. The goals and timetables for minority and female participation, expressed in percentage terms for the Contractor’s aggregate workforce in each trade on all construction work in the covered area, are as follows: A Goals for minority participation for each trade: 24.6% B. Goals for female participation in each trade: 6.9% These goals are applicable to all the Contractor’s construction work (whether or not it is Federal or federally assisted) performed in the covered area. If the contractor performs construction work in a geographical area located outside of the covered area, it shall apply the goals established for such geographical area where the work is actually performed. With regard to this second area, the contractor also is subject to the goals for both its federally involved and nonfederally involved construction. The Contractor’s compliance with the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR part 60- 4 shall be based on its implementation of the Equal Opportunity Clause, specific affirmative action obligations required by the specifications set forth in 41 CFR 60-4.3(a), and its efforts to meet the goals. The hours of minority and female employment and training must be substantially uniform throughout the length of the contract, and in each trade, and the contractor shall make a good faith effort to employ minorities and women evenly on each of its projects. The transfer of minority or female employees or trainees from Contractor to Contractor or from project to project for the sole purpose of meeting the Contractor’s goals shall be a violation of the contract, the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR part 604. Compliance with the goals will be measured against the total work hours performed. 3. The Contractor shall provide written notification to the Director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs within 10 working days of award of any construction subcontract in excess of $10,000 at any tier for construction work under the contract resulting from this solicitation. The notification shall list the name, address and telephone number of the Subcontractor; employer identification number of the Subcontractor; estimated dollar amount of the Subcontract; estimated starting and completion dates of the Subcontract; and the geographical area in which the Subcontract is to be performed. 4.

COUNTY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING & BUILDING NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING WHO:

County of San Luis Obispo Planning Commission

WHEN:

Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 09:00 AM. All items are advertised for 09:00 AM. To verify agenda placement, please call the Department of Planning & Building at (805) 781-5600.

WHAT:

Hearing to consider a request by John Swift for a third time extension (EXT2018-00041) of previously approved Minor Use Permit/Coastal Development Permit (DRC2012-00117) to: a) construct a new 2,340-square-foot single-family residence with a 280-square-foot attached garage; b) grade to widen, extend, and pave an existing 1,700-foot driveway; c) install two 8,000 gallon water tanks, associated utilities, and a stormwater detention system; and d) convert an existing single-family residence to farm support quarters. The proposed project would result in the disturbance of approximately 1.3 acres on a 148-acre parcel in the Agriculture land use category. The proposed project is located at 3698 Clark Valley Road, approximately one mile south of Los Osos Valley Road and two miles southeast of the Los Osos urban reserve line. The site is in the Estero Planning Area. The project was modified through a Substantial Conformance process which allowed the relocation of the proposed driveway. This revision was found to be an alternate low slope, non-paved driveway route which will eliminate several biological impacts. The new proposed driveway has been reviewed on site with Cal Fire. The alternate driveway would not result in any potentially significant impacts to biological resources and would be less impactful on the environment when compared to the approved driveway. County File Number: EXT2018-00041 Supervisorial District: District 2 Assessor Parcel Number(s): 067-161-014 Date Accepted: N/A

WHERE: The hearing will be held in the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 1055 Monterey Street, Room #D170, County Government Center, San Luis Obispo, CA. The Board of Supervisors Chambers are located on the corner of Santa Rosa and Monterey Streets. At the meeting all interested persons may express their views for or against, or to change the proposal.

BY: Annette Ramirez Deputy Clerk

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (916) 939-0772 or visit this Internet Web site http://www.nationwideposting.com/, using the file number assigned to this case 300WS018317.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Think of the last person you cursed, if only with a hateful thought if not an actual spell. Now send them a free-hearted blessing. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Genius inventor Thomas Edison rebelled against sleep, which he regarded as wasteful. He tried to limit his time in bed to four hours per night so he would have more time to work during his waking hours. Genius scientist Albert Einstein had a different approach. He preferred 10 hours of sleep per night, and liked to steal naps during the day, too. In my astrological opinion, Aries, you’re in a phase when it makes more sense to imitate Einstein than Edison. Important learning and transformation are happening in your dreams. Give your nightly adventures maximum opportunity to work their magic in your behalf.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The Danish flag has a red background emblazoned with an asymmetrical white cross. It was a national symbol of power as early as the 14th century, and may have first emerged during a critical military struggle that established the Danish empire in 1219. No other country in the world has a flag with such an ancient origin. But if Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, who’s a Taurus, came to me and asked me for advice, I would urge him to break with custom and design a new flag—maybe something with a spiral rainbow or a psychedelic tree. I’ll suggest an even more expansive idea to you, Taurus: Create fresh traditions in every area of your life!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): On June 7, 1988, Gemini musician Bob Dylan launched what has come to be known as the Never Ending Tour. It’s still going. In the past 30-plus years, he has performed almost 3,000 shows on every continent except Antarctica. In 2018 alone, at the age of 77, he did 84 gigs. He’s living proof that not every Gemini is flaky and averse to commitment. Even if you yourself have flirted with flightiness in the past, I doubt you will do so in the next five weeks. On the contrary, I expect you’ll be a paragon of persistence, doggedness, and stamina.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The otters at a marine park in Miura City, Japan, are friendly to human visitors. There are holes in the glass walls of their enclosures through which they reach out to shake people’s hands with their webbed paws. I think you need experiences akin to that in the coming weeks. Your mental and spiritual health will thrive to the degree that you seek closer contact with animals. It’s a favorable time to nurture your instinctual intelligence and absorb influences from the natural world. For extra credit, tune in to and celebrate your own animal qualities.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Between 1977 and 1992, civil war raged in Mozambique. Combatants planted thousands of land mines that have remained dangerous long after the conflict ended. In recent years, a new ally has emerged in the quest to address the problem: rats that are trained to find the hidden explosives so human colleagues can defuse them. The expert sniffers don’t weigh enough to detonate the mines, so they’re ideal to play the role of saviors. I foresee a metaphorically comparable development in your future, Leo. You’ll get help and support from a surprising or seemingly unlikely source.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Imagine a stairway that leads nowhere; as you ascend, you realize that at the top is not a door or a hallway, but a wall. I suspect that lately you may have been dealing with a metaphorical version of an anomaly like this. But I also predict that in the coming weeks some magic will transpire that will change everything. It’s like you’ll find a button on the wall that when pushed opens a previously imperceptible door. Somehow, you’ll gain entrance through an apparent obstruction.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Not all of the classic works of great literature are entertaining. According to one survey of editors, writers, and librarians, Goethe’s Faust, Melville’s Moby Dick, and Cervantes’ Don Quixote are among the

most boring masterpieces ever written. But most experts agree that they’re still valuable to read. In that spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to commune with other dull but meaningful things. Seek out low-key but rich offerings. Be aware that unexciting people and situations may offer clues and catalysts that you need.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Many of you Scorpios regard secrecy as a skill worth cultivating. It serves your urge to gather and manage power. You’re aware that information is a valuable commodity, so you guard it carefully and share it sparingly. This predilection sometimes makes you seem understated, even shy. Your hesitancy to express too much of your knowledge and feelings may influence people to underestimate the intensity that seethes within you. Having said all that, I’ll now predict that you’ll show the world who you are with more dazzle and flamboyance in the coming weeks. It’ll be interesting to see how you do that as you also try to heed your rule that information is power.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian actress and producer DeborraLee Furness has been married to megastar actor Hugh Jackman for 23 years. Their wedding rings are inscribed with a motto that blends Sanskrit and English, “Om paramar to the mainamar.” Hugh and Deborah-Lee say it means, “We dedicate our union to a greater source.” In resonance with current astrological omens, I invite you to engage in a similar gesture with an important person in your life. Now is a marvelous time to deepen and sanctify your relationship by pledging yourselves to a higher purpose or beautiful collaboration or sublime mutual quest.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 1997, a supercomputer named Deep Blue won six chess matches against Chess Grand Master Gary Kasparov. In 2016, an Artificial Intelligence called AlphaGo squared off against human champion Lee Sodol in a best-of-five series of the Chinese board game Go. AlphaGo crushed Sodol, four games to one. But there is at least one cerebral game in which human intelligence still reigns supreme: the card game known as bridge. No AI has as yet beat the best bridge players. I bring this to your attention, Capricorn, because I am sure that in the coming weeks, no AI could out-think and out-strategize you as you navigate your way through life’s tests and challenges. You’ll be smarter than ever. P.S.: I’m guessing your acumen will be extra soulful, as well.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): At regular intervals, a hot stream of boiling water shoots up out of the earth and into the sky in Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park. It’s a geyser called Old Faithful. The steamy surge can reach a height of 185 feet and last for five minutes. When white settlers first discovered this natural phenomenon in the 19th century, some of them used it as a laundry. Between blasts, they’d place their dirty clothes in Old Faithful’s aperture. When the scalding flare erupted, it provided all the necessary cleansing. I’d love to see you attempt a metaphorically similar feat, Aquarius: Harness a natural force for a practical purpose, or a primal power for an earthy task.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Who was the model for Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic painting Mona Lisa? Many scholars think it was Italian noblewoman Lisa del Giocondo. Leonardo wanted her to feel comfortable during the long hours she sat for him, so he hired musicians to play for her and people with mellifluous voices to read her stories. He built a musical fountain for her to gaze upon and a white Persian cat to cuddle. If it were within my power, I would arrange something similar for you in the coming weeks. Why? Because I’d love to see you be calmed and soothed for a concentrated period of time; to feel perfectly at ease, at home in the world, surrounded by beautiful influences you love. In my opinion, you need and deserve such a break from the everyday frenzy. ∆
