Women’s March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

S

an Luis Obispo police officers asked a local group of women to leave the Women’s March SLO rally on Jan. 18 because their mission didn’t align with that of the local Women’s March chapter. The women were part of the Central Coast Health Coalition, a regional group formed to advocate for consumer choice in health. Nicole Dorfman, a member of the coalition, said the group wore pink T-shirts that read, “Believe mothers” or “I love informed consent” and held signs that read “women deserve the truth to be fully informed,” “vaccine mandates violate women’s choice,” and “vaccine mandates bodily integrity.” The signs, Dorfman said, are part of a movement created by Joshua Coleman— according to NBC News, Coleman has stated that a vaccine injury confined his son to a wheelchair. He’s at the center of aggressive protests and actions against vaccinations. Coalition members gathered at Mitchell Park on the morning of the event to participate in the rally when they were approached by the officers, Dorfman said. “We were told by police, at the direction of Women’s March organizers, to leave the park,” Dorfman said. Sara Semmes was also part of the group that was ushered out of the event. “It was calm; we were not interested in creating a confrontation or a disturbance,” she said. “We were just holding a sign like every other woman holding a sign.” Ahead of the Women’s March SLO event, the group applied to have a booth at the “Time is Now Call to Action Alley”—where organizations and groups had informational booths. Dorfman said the group’s application was originally approved but later rescinded. Andrea Chmelik, Women’s March SLO’s communications director, told New Times that the Women’s March sent the coalition an email on Dec. 21, 2019, explaining that the chapter

Grover Beach delays discussing North Oak Park after fatality

The block of Grover Beach near the intersection of North Oak Park Boulevard and Brighton Avenue was still taped off and surrounded by flashing police cars at about 9 p.m. on Jan. 21. Road closure signs were visible, temporary lights lit the scene, and numbered markers sat beside nearly every piece of broken glass, stain, and clothing still left in the street. As investigators worked, writing busily in notepads and conferring over evidence, a small group solemnly huddled around a woman sitting on a nearby curb, her face in her hands, sobbing. Dog walkers stopped to chat with other onlookers, passing cars slowed as they neared the scene, and neighbors stood out on their lawns and driveways, wrapped up in blankets or hands stuffed in coat pockets, watching. They aren’t surprised this happened. Two hours earlier, just before 7 p.m., the

Grover Beach Police Department responded to a reported collision at the 300 block of North Oak Park Boulevard, where a man on foot was allegedly hit and killed by an SUV as he was crossing the road near an unmarked intersection. The investigation is ongoing, according to a Grover Beach Police press release, and the identity of the pedestrian hasn’t been released. At the same time, a Grover Beach City Council meeting was in session, where council members were scheduled to discuss several ideas that could make North Oak Park Boulevard safer for both drivers and pedestrians. Grover Beach residents have complained for years that various portions of North Oak Park are confusing and difficult for drivers to navigate, and dangerous for pedestrians crossing the road. Although City Council had planned to discuss the potential installation of marked crosswalks, NEWS continued page 6

traffic-calming and speed-reduction measures, better intersection striping, and the removal of several parking spots along curbs on the notorious roadway, Mayor Jeff Lee announced after a short break at about 7:30 p.m. that the discussion would be postponed to the council’s Feb. 3 meeting. “I am going to request a continuance for this next item on the fact that we’ve just received word that approximately a half hour ago there was a fatality at the intersection of North Oak Park and Brighton Avenue,” Lee said at the meeting. “A pedestrian versus a vehicle.” Attendees, many of whom were there to share their concerns over the safety issues at that very intersection, met the announcement with grumbles and gasps. One shouted, “We’re talking about life or death, folks!” To pacify the crowd, Lee allowed community members to comment on the projects proposed for the road and several of its intersections. Many complained about the difficulty of making turns and crossing intersections along North Oak Park, cars traveling at high speeds, and parked cars obstructing drivers’ vision. Although a city speed survey conducted in 2019 found drivers on Oak Park Boulevard rarely exceed the 30 mph speed limit by more than 4 miles per hour, Grover Beach resident Les Henderson, who lives on Oak Park, likened the road to a drag race. Henderson said the city has long known about the safety issues at the intersection of North Oak Park and Brighton, but nothing has changed. “People like me, the residents up here, are begging you for help,” Henderson said at the meeting. “And you can’t make a decision or you’re indecisive or you want to do another survey.” Henderson noted the city’s own findings that there were 20 traffic collisions on North Oak Park between West Grand and Sierra avenues in 2018, and 17 collisions on the same stretch of road in 2019. “Please, folks, help us,” he said. “Do something. Make a decision. Please, city manager. Please, public works. Please, police department!” Residents and city staff disagree about how to make the roadway in question safer. However, most agree that the parking spots along North Oak Park Boulevard near its intersections with Brighton and Newport avenues and in front of Oak Park Christian Church need to go. Vehicles parked in those spots make it nearly impossible for drivers turning onto Oak Park to see oncoming traffic, according to a city staff report. A city survey regarding the spots found that nearly 90 percent of 55 respondents supported removing about 30 parking spaces along the road. Half of those parking spaces sit directly in front of Oak Park Christian Church. Pastor Mike Gunderson told New Times that church leaders have been trying to get rid of those spots since before he started at the church nearly 13 years ago. The parking spots are rarely used for parishioners and are usually filled with used cars for sale. It’s unsightly, Gunderson said, and worse, when trucks, SUVs, and even motorhomes are left in those spots, it’s challenging for drivers leaving the church parking lot to see oncoming traffic. But every time the church has requested that the city remove those

parking spots, it’s been denied. So Gunderson said he was pleasantly surprised when he heard the city’s proposal to paint the curb red. “It’s been an issue for a number of years,” he told New Times. —Kasey Bubnash

Hill and Korsgaden clash over housing, dunes, civility at New Times forum

San Luis Obispo County’s two candidates for 3rd District supervisor squared off on Jan. 15 in the first of two primary election forums hosted by New Times. In front of an overflowing audience in the SLO County Government Center, incumbent Adam Hill and challenger Stacy Kordsgaden laid out their differing stances on a range of local issues. They’re vying to represent Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Avila Beach, Edna Valley, a majority of SLO, and parts of Arroyo Grande on the Board of Supervisors. Hill, a former Cal Poly faculty member who’s seeking a fourth term as supervisor, touted his work on issues like homelessness and economic development. “The reason why we have homelessness as a budget priority is because of the work I and others are doing,” Hill said. Korsgaden, a Grover Beach insurance agent and chair of the Boys and Girls Club of South County, took issue with Hill’s communication style and promised the community better results on traffic relief and jobs. “I feel there’s been a severe failure of communication with our local community,” Korsgaden said. “I felt our local representative was not listening to what were asking for locally.” Hill and Korsgaden—the former a progressive Democrat, the latter a moderate Republican—demonstrated their contrasting political philosophies throughout the forum. The candidates outlined different visions for the role of the county on topics ranging from housing to Oceano Dunes pollution. Hill said the county should invest more direct resources into affordable housing, which includes continuing “inclusionary” fees on market home builders to support affordable projects. Meanwhile, Korsgaden supported lowering fees on developers to incentivize more home building. While Hill expressed strong overall support for new housing, Korsgaden felt that fixes to local traffic congestion should come first. “We have to build homes. It comes back to what should we do first?” Korsgaden said. “We’re stuck in traffic.” Regarding the ongoing contentious debate over the future of the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area, Hill called the park’s lack of dust pollution control “one of the disgraces of our local community.” He promised to advocate for stronger regulation and oversight. “There’s nothing more important than public health,” Hill said. In contrast, Korsgaden expressed more concern about the economic impact of any potential closure of the state park. She vouched for a better balance between recreation and regulation. “What about the health of our economy?” Korsgaden said. The candidates appeared more aligned

on positions relating to the Diablo Canyon Power Plant decommission, cannabis policies, and the need for more mental health and drug and alcohol services. Both stated their support for preserving Diablo’s coastal land for a future open space park, though Korsgaden noted that she could also support a proposal that brought in revenue to offset the plant’s closure. The candidates generally supported the incoming cannabis industry and agreed that the county should expand its mental health and substance abuse services. “The truth is we need to put increasingly more resources into this [mental health and substance abuse]. We have a lot to do,” Hill said. The forum’s tensest moment came when Korsgaden addressed Hill’s temperament and communication style. She held Hill responsible for the acrimonious tone of SLO County politics, adding that her opinion is shared among constituents. “What I hear is bullying, scare tactics,” Korsgaden said. “It’s not productive.” Meanwhile, Hill placed blame for the often-divided Board of Supervisors’ dysfunction on the three conservative members who hold the majority. “We need a better board who believes in truth, facts, and evidence,” he said. “That’s something we’ve gotten away from.” —Peter Johnson

Vape detectors coming soon to Lopez High School

Lopez High School is set to get the first vape sensors in the Lucia Mar Unified School District, tools administrators say could help mitigate students’ increasing use of vaping and e-cigarette devices on campus. At a meeting on Jan. 21, the Lucia Mar board of education voted to approve the installation of safety video systems at eight district sites, including Lopez High, where four vape sensors will also be installed in student bathrooms. The sensors, according to Amy Jacobs, who handles Lucia Mar’s marketing and communications, can detect chemicals produced by vapes and e-cigarette products when they’re being used. When a sensor is triggered, it alerts administrators via text. The vape sensors cost about $1,100 each and are being paid for through a grant Lopez High received to help the school address its high suspension rates. As of Dec. 10, 2019, Lucia Mar had already fielded 90 incidents involving vapes this school year alone, according to a district report, 13 of which were at Lopez High. If the vape sensors successfully deter students from using those devices on campus, Jacobs said the district might consider installing sensors at other sites too. Lopez and other sites are also getting

outfitted with video systems, which Jacobs said will be used to identify vandals and thieves. Lucia Mar sites are often the targets of such crime, she said, and security cameras have proven to be “excellent deterrents” of that behavior. The security systems will be paid for by Measure I Series A funding, and those cameras and the sensors together will cost about $226,600. —Kasey Bubnash

SLO City Council won’t ban public art of people

The San Luis Obispo City Council walked back its proposed ban on public art of individual people on Jan. 21, reversing the stance it took six months ago amid controversy over plans for a Theodore Roosevelt statue in Mitchell Park. Instead, the City Council voted 4-0, with Mayor Heidi Harmon absent, to continue its policy of reviewing public art projects on “a case-by-case basis.” Council members who had previously supported the ban said that community feedback in the ensuing weeks and months caused them to rethink the policy. “We missed the mark,” Vice Mayor Aaron Gomez said. “I’m more than happy to change that trajectory we were going on.” Councilmember Andy Pease, who originally supported the ban, told New Times that local residents made “eloquent arguments” about the value of having a debate about art, whether it’s art depicting specific people, movements, or ideas. “Within a couple weeks ... I realized that was a fundamentally flawed approach, to ban statues of people altogether,” Pease said. “We need to decide that case by case.” While the council members agreed to stick with SLO’s current policy on public art, a majority warned that they remained opposed to a statue of Roosevelt. Proposed by a citizen group in 2017, the Roosevelt project was pitched as a tribute to the 26th president’s 1903 stop in SLO during a tour of the West. The project committee, led by former City Councilmember John Ashbaugh, raised about $50,000 for the cause before opposition formed. Opponents, which include local native tribal groups, denounced Roosevelt’s views and policies toward Native Americans. Carlyn Christianson—the lone council member to oppose the ban back when it was proposed—called the policy “a terrible idea,” but also reiterated her reservations about a Roosevelt statue. “It’s the dumbest thing I ever heard of,” Christianson said about the nearly adopted policy. “I still don’t support, absent further discussion, a statue of a former president on public land.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

he Central Coast is what some social service experts call “a justice desert”—meaning, it has a shortage of pro bono lawyers and legal aid nonprofits to help low-income citizens navigate the justice system. “There’s already a shortage throughout California,” explained Sharon Bashan, the pro bono justice program director at OneJustice, a nonprofit that consults with legal aid organizations statewide. “But then you have these justice deserts. We just realize there’s a high need.” In an effort to fill the gap, OneJustice and the California Rural Legal Assistance are partnering to host two free legal clinics next month in San Luis Obispo County—one focused on expunging criminal records, the other on immigration assistance. The expungement clinic will take place on Friday, Feb. 7, from 12:30 to 4:30

“What we’re trying to do is provide legitimate and high-quality legal services within the confines of a clinic,” Bashan said. Bashan noted that immigrants are often subject to scams where people pretending to be qualified immigration attorneys steal their money—it’s called notario fraud. “It’s problematic,” she said. “You have these people who have escaped really harrowing situations in their home country, and these bad actors promise them the world. They take their money and put them in situations where they could potentially get deported.” SLO County community members interested in participating in the clinics should contact OneJustice beforehand to reserve a spot—call (323) 739-8093 or email Bashan at sbashan@one-justice.org.

Direct care A local physician is bringing back the doctor-to-patient relationship by stepping away from hospital chains

P

BY K A REN G A RC I A

J Lloyd has a unique living situation due to her career in digital marketing, technology marketing, and web development. She spends half her time in Minneapolis and the remainder of it in California. Her primary care doctor, who Lloyd has seen for several years, is in Minneapolis, but Lloyd said her overall experience hasn’t been positive. She’s recently experienced a health issue that she’s tried to communicate to her doctor but found it challenging. “It was as though he wasn’t listening to the symptoms and the issues I was having. It was more of a quick in-andout,” Lloyd said. Lloyd explained her situation to a friend on the Central Coast who referred her to Dr. Lindsey Faucette, who handles her practice a little differently than the chain

hospitals and concierge medical practices in the area. Dr. Faucette follows the direct primary care model, which isn’t new but is becoming more prevalent throughout the U.S. As opposed to hospital chains— nonprofit and for-profit—that bill insurance companies for their patients, direct primary care cuts out the middleman by taking direct payment from the patient through a flat monthly rate. The model decreases the cost of seeing a doctor and increases the amount of time a doctor can spend with a patient. Dr. Faucette opened her practice, the SLO Health Center, in San Luis Obispo in 2019. Lloyd hasn’t seen Dr. Faucette in person yet, but she’s sent the doctor her medical records, and they’ve had several phone calls—the initial consultation and conversations about Lloyd’s overall health as well as her recent concerns. “[Dr. Faucette] made me feel like my situation, at that point she was on the phone with me, was the most important part of her day,” Lloyd said.

• • •

Sitting in her practice room with plenty of natural lighting, Dr. Faucette told New Times she could remember the exact moment she realized she didn’t want to be in a modern hospital setting. During residency training in New York City, where she trained in a federally qualified health center on Union Square, she was dissatisfied with the structure of the clinic because she rarely saw patients she knew. “It was more often whoever just wound up on my schedule, and that tends to happen when these [hospital] systems get too big,” she said. Dr. Faucette said she remembers being in her program director’s office and asking for more continuity with patients. “We have to be able to see our patients and see what happens to them over time,” she remembered telling her program director. Dr. Faucette moved on to being a practicing physician at a hospital in California with the same issues: No doctor and patient foundation, the call center for the hospital was outsourced, and there wasn’t enough time to understand each patient’s needs. The modern hospital setting didn’t make sense to Dr. Faucette, whose medical background is focused on osteopathic and family medicine. Osteopathic medicine has all the benefits of modern medicine but it emphasizes health promotion and disease prevention by taking an overall wellness approach. She believes that part of that approach is taking the time to get to know the patient and understand their medical history. For seven years, she was a physician

lifelong dream of forming relationships built on trust with her patients. The SLO Health Center is subscription-based— patients pay a flat monthly rate based on their age. Through her practice, Dr. Faucette offers no co-pays, an unlimited number of visits, accessibility to her through email, text, or phone, as well as home visits. She’s also able to call or text doctors and laboratory offices on her own time, to talk about her patients or get laboratory results. For a new patient, Dr. Faucette schedules a two-hour appointment to understand the patient’s history, his or her concerns, and come up with a unique comprehensive plan. Follow-up appointments can range from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the situation. She said she’s able to offer these benefits because she’s keeping her patient list to 200 to 300 patients—as opposed to the typical 1,000 to 3,000 patients per doctor. The increased time for health care delivery comes from the doctor not having to bill insurance, write down the codes for every check and procedure done, or submit medical notes to an insurance agency.

Physician Dr. Julie Gunther from Boise, Idaho, was the first to open a direct care practice in Southwest Idaho in early 2014. She’s also one of the founding members and current president of the Direct Primary Care Alliance—the physician

run, founded, and direct primary care physician organization. Dr. Gunther said the heart of the organization is to revitalize direct medical care to patients, but it came about because of physician suicide and burnout. According to a review of 10 years of literature presented at the American Psychiatry Association in 2018, an estimated 300 to 400 doctors kill themselves each year. A recent online survey of doctors completed by the American Medical Association found an overall physician burnout rate of 44 percent, with 15 percent saying they experienced colloquial or clinical forms of depression. Physician burnout, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, is a longterm stress reaction marked by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a lack of sense of personal accomplishment. Dr. Gunther was one of many physicians who experienced burnout and said direct primary care saved her and gave her the ability to be the doctor she set out to be. On top of this resurgence of direct medical care, Dr. Gunther said physicians are going back to being the “Swiss Army knives of medicine”—doctors who are trained and can treat the entire body (in most cases). “Family physicians are sort of reclaiming their scope of practice and saying, ‘You know I can take that off a patient’s back and it costs me 10 bucks in supplies and a half hour’s time,’” she said. It significantly reduces the amount of money a patient spends, she said. An example would be trying to get a referral to a dermatologist, where patients pay for the initial consultation with the specialist

plus the cost of the procedure. However, Dr. Gunther said that direct care isn’t the same as concierge medicine. Both are alternative ways to deliver health care that have shifted from the modern business model, but she said the end goal and spirit of each model is different. While concierge physicians can provide complete care for a reasonable fee, these practices typically take insurance and charge a fee on top of that. In a typical direct primary care practice, it’s just a flat rate, Dr. Gunther said, which is normally less than $100 per person per month. It doesn’t matter whether the patient doesn’t have an insurance card, a green card, or a Social Security card—that person will be provided medical care.

Appalenia Udell, a Colorado-based health lawyer for doctors, helped write the Colorado Direct Primary Care Act of 2017, which exempts practices following the model from state insurance regulations. Udell is now working on making Medicare accessible for direct primary care physicians. She issued a letter of intent to the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services—a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that administers the Medicare program— in December 2019 saying that she wants Medicare to be a direct contracting entity. “We just want to work with direct primary care practices and enable them to get their monthly fee through Medicare, rather than not seeing Medicare beneficiaries at all, or going through a traditional fee for service,” she said. She wants direct care practices to be able to partner with state-based Medicare

programs, including Medi-Cal. Patients using Medicare tend to have complex or chronic health conditions, Udell said, that have been shown to benefit greatly from enhanced care offered by the direct primary care model, while simultaneously addressing the heightened cost of care for these patients. The process to approve the initiative includes submitting a formal application (along with a list of physicians who are behind the initiative) by Feb. 25 and implementing the initiative by June 30. If successful, the initiative would be available Jan. 1, 2021. Udell joined Dr. Faucette in bringing the idea to SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon. Harmon told New Times she thinks the model could provide a level of care that would really benefit all kinds of people in the community. Aside from providing an alternative method of affordable health care delivery to city employees, the community atlarge, and Cal Poly students, the direct care model could also benefit homeless individuals who are on Medi-Cal or Medicare. SLO County Jail inmates could receive this care while in custody, and transgender youth and young adults could receive direct gender affirmation care. “Until we make something like singlepayer health care a reality in our country, these other models are providing deeper understanding and approach to medical care,” Harmon said. “I’ve tried to create a community of care here in SLO, and the type of medical care [Dr. Faucette and Udell] are talking about really adds to that.” ∆ Staff Writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE LAND CONSERVANCY OF SLO COUNTY

GRAND OPENING After five years of work, the Pismo Preserve opens to the public on Jan. 25. It offers 11 miles of multi-use trails with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean coastline.

Wide open spaces Pismo Preserve opens Jan. 25, while new SLO city trails are just a few months away

T

BY PETER JOHNSON

his year promises to be an exciting time for local hikers, runners, mountain bikers, horseback riders, and open space enthusiasts. After more than five years of work and millions of dollars of investment, the Pismo Preserve opens to the public on Jan. 25. The 880-acre former ranch, located just east of the Five Cities area, offers 11 miles of multi-use trails, with sweeping views of the coastline and surrounding region. Kaila Dettman, executive director for the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County—which owns the property and

has led the effort to transform it into a preserve—told New Times that she had “no adequate words to describe what it’s like to explore that space.” “We want to share it with everybody,” Dettman said. “I’d say we’re all grinning ear to ear to be able to finally open this up to everyday use.” Open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. (and 9:30 p.m. during daylight saving time) every day, the preserve and its network of trails are accessible via Mattie Road in Pismo Beach. A parking lot at its dead end accommodates 54 vehicles, including three horse trailers (available by reservation only, except for Horse Trailer

Tuesdays—on the first and third Tuesday of each month, the parking lot is available only to horse trailers). The land brings much-needed open space recreation to South County, Dettman said, and it’s expected to draw 100,000 visitors per year. “When we set out to do this,” she said, “we wanted to create something unique to the Five Cities area, something the residents don’t already have.” The trails are organized into five segments. There are three “loops” that explore different parts of the preserve at different elevations: Discovery (5.2 miles), Spring to Spring (3.4 miles), and Lone Oak (2.2 miles). Then there’s the mellower (and hiking-only) option: Vamonos Canyon (0.75 miles). And, finally, the Panhandle (1.1 miles) is an out-and-back trail that takes you to the highest point in the preserve at 916 feet: the Avila Overlook. “You can choose your adventure,” Dettman said. “The great thing is [the trails] are all on mild to moderate slope. You rise about 800 to 900 feet on one of the loops, but it doesn’t really feel like you’ve climbed that much. They give incredible panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean [and also] meander through oak woodlands. You get a little bit of everything.” Most of the Pismo Preserve’s trails are open to hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. During their creation in 2016, the local biking and equestrian communities played important roles. Scott Couture, a Land Conservancy

staffer and board member for the Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers organization, told New Times that bike club members and design professionals worked together to “flag out sustainable routes throughout the property.” “That process was six months of work of laying flag lines down,” Couture explained. “We built all our trails with sustainable grades in mind, of 5 to 7 percent grades. We built the Pismo Preserve always as a place for all users.” Building the trails required a machine operator out of Santa Cruz and more than 230 volunteers over a three-month period. Couture said he’s thrilled with the results. He categorized the trails as “intermediate” for mountain bikers. “They’re not aggressive trails,” he said. “We did that on purpose.” The biggest sell of the open space for users, he said, is the environment itself. Couture described the coastal views offered on its trails as “Big Sur-esque.” “It’s just a really beautiful location,” Couture said. “The Five Cities zone doesn’t have that much open space and trails available to them, so it really gives that community, which is underserved, an open space they can use.”

OPEN SPACE from page 14

The Miossi Open Space, a 266-acre ranch wedged between Poly Canyon and Highway 101 at the bottom of the Cuesta Grade, is slated to open this spring or summer. On Jan. 14, the SLO City Council approved a conservation plan for the land, which the city purchased in 2018 for $1.3 million. Bob Hill, SLO’s sustainability and natural resources official, said the new open space “provides a really nice opportunity for trail connections between Poly Canyon, over to [Old] Stagecoach [Road], and up toward Los Padres National Forest.” The Miossi Open Space adds to the more than 7,500 acres of greenbelt already preserved by the city.

“Miossi Open Space fills a gap,” Hill said, speaking to the space between Cal Poly lands, Stenner Creek Open Space, and the Reservoir Canyon Open Space across Highway 101. The property will likely offer three new trail segments that, for the most part, will be open to both hikers and bikers. There’s a loop along the top, a trail along the bottom, and a short trail to reach the summit at nearly 1,500 feet. Before its grand opening, the city has to finish the trails, install fencing, signage, kiosks, and amenities like trash cans and mutt mitts, and arrange native tribal site visits. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Orangetheory is coming to town, but here are two local gyms you could support instead BY K A SEY BU BNA SH t was October 2018 when national fitness chain Orangetheory announced it’d be coming to San Luis Obispo to offer its renowned “science-backed, technology-tracked” group workouts to residents of the Central Coast. The news was met with enthusiasm from many of SLO’s gym rats, and although Orangetheory’s new location at 3865 S. Higuera St. hasn’t even opened to the general public, its Facebook page already has 431 followers. A grand opening date still hasn’t been set. So whether you’re sick of waiting for Orangetheory to open its doors or your checkbook simply can’t handle its prices, here are two local gyms offering awesome group fitness services at reasonable (and free) prices.

Rev SLO F itness

Chatter quiets and gymgoers gather around as fitness trainer Corey Stollmeyer welcomes the class and strolls over to a whiteboard containing a list of the day’s exercises. Some attendees mindlessly stretch as Stollmeyer describes what each workout will entail, some nervously chew at their nails, and others plant their hands firmly on their hips and squint to better see the board. Everyone groans when Stollmeyer mentions 3-minute planks.

The intro doesn’t take long—everyone in this class has been here before— and when Stollmeyer claps his hands, attendees hustle to their stations and get in position. He pumps up the music, turns on his stopwatch, and everyone starts. “Happy Thursday, baby!” he shouts, while each of his red-faced pupils—all focused on a different exercise in the circuit—squat, jump, and plank, all at their own pace. “Keep it going,” Stollmeyer yells while clapping. “Just 15 more seconds!” This is the kind of personalized, coach-athlete model that clients at Rev SLO Fitness pay for. Whether it’s one of Rev’s many circuit, spin, and bootcamp classes, or its personal training services, Stollmeyer says customers are able to customize their workouts to match whatever level of difficulty they’re comfortable with. Trainers at Rev like to keep their classes small so that each client has as intimate a workout as possible. Even the spin room—which, aside from a few black lights, is kept in total darkness during sessions—allows for more privacy during a workout. That’s what Rev is all about. “Fitness designed for you,” Stollmeyer plugs with a proud smile. Rev, run by Stollmeyer and his brother Darik, is celebrating its 10th year in

award-Winning community Journalism Right heRe on the central coAst

business, and as part of the festivities, Stollmeyer says the gym is offering a number of new services. A recently completed remodel and expansion—which essentially doubled the spin and training rooms and the outdoor exercise space— allowed for additional equipment. They’ve added classes and open gym hours on Saturdays and Sundays, they’re hosting 11 classes every weekday, and they’re offering discounted prices for the new year. While Stollmeyer says Rev’s updates aren’t a response to the news that Orangetheory is coming to town, he admits that a lot of local gyms are upping the ante in preparation for the fitness giant’s arrival. But he’s not worried about losing business. Rev has more than 100 clients, lower prices, and close ties to the SLO fitness community. “I think people will see local is better than a corporate model,” he says.

When Mike Robinson was 15 years old, he and a friend joined a gym and started working out for about four to five hours every day. They weren’t sure what to do or how to do it, so they just copied whatever they saw the “buff guys” doing. Robinson was ripped. But one day, Robinson’s right arm gave out while he was bench-pressing. The weights came crashing down on him, and he could tell something was wrong with his shoulder. He found out that his injury was caused by overuse. He had to completely stop exercising his upper body and go through physical therapy.

Families who join will each get a customized workout and nutrition plan and will have unlimited access to all MZR classes, which operate five days a week in the morning, at lunch, and in the evening. The gym is also hosting free, community workouts the first Saturday of every month. To Robinson, both programs are a way to give back to the community that’s given him such a strong and devoted customer base for years. “We don’t want finances to come between someone being healthy and not being healthy,” he said. Despite Orangetheory’s nationwide customer base, Robinson moved into a location just down the street from Orangetheory’s soon-to-come facility. Still an athlete at heart, Robinson said he’s actually looking forward to having another gym in town. “It’s always good to have more competition,” Robinson said. ∆

A quiet space Can we keep Oso Flaco Lake as a peaceful place?

W

hen despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought or grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

This poem, “The Peace of Wild Things,” by Wendell Berry, captures perfectly my experience at a most special place in our county, Oso Flaco Lake. Oso Flaco is home to myriad wild things, among them several hundred species of birds— some reside here year-round; others come to breed or overwinter; and many pass through on migratory journeys, sometimes of thousands of miles. Migratory birds need quiet, safe places where they can rest and feed in preparation for the next stage of their journey. Coastal wetlands are vital stopovers for migrants, yet California has lost at least 90 percent of its coastal wetlands to development. Now, State Parks plans to transform Oso Flaco with a 200-plus-space campground, staging areas for OHVs, and new lanes in the vehicle dunes. This will bring crowds, noise, litter, and pollution, depriving Oso Flaco’s

wild things of a clean, secure habitat. It will deprive visitors like me of serenity and calm. Simply, it will destroy Oso Flaco. People who require quiet, uncrowded places for the restoration of their souls may be in the minority, but we deserve recreational spaces as much as anyone else. Few places suitable for us are left: reservoirs, campgrounds, and beaches teem with folks enjoying the hubbub of crowds, undeterred by the noise and emissions of automobiles, ATVs, speedboats, and jet skis. I humbly ask folks to leave us a share of recreational space that is good both for our souls and for the lives of a thousand wild creatures. You may have to sacrifice a portion of space—in this case, some acres of dunes available for cruising—but please be mindful of the fact that we have had to sacrifice many spaces that others enjoy. Oso Flaco is very small compared to the hundreds of acres in our county devoted to busier pursuits. Let us keep this tiny gem. An overview of the planned development is available on the state’s Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation website under the Oceano Dunes SVRA tab. Opportunities for public comment are outlined at oceanodunespwp.com/en/ meetings. Public comment on the plan closes on Jan. 24. ∆ Johanna Rubba writes to New Times from Grover Beach.

Letters Regarding ‘Justice for Bubs’ (Jan. 16)

Let me begin by saying that the Regalia/Manford family have my sincerest sympathies for the loss of their beloved family member Bubbers. Reading the story in New Times (“Justice for Bubs,” Jan. 16) was heartbreaking, and I cannot imagine how horrible the experience was for this family. To see your own pet gunned down before your eyes and fear that you yourself might be shot must have been terrifying for these people. It was shocking to me just reading about it. I was raised to respect police officers, and I am married to a former peace officer. But not everyone is cut out for the job, and officer Josh Walsh has clearly demonstrated that he cannot perform appropriately under pressure. He needlessly killed an innocent animal and could easily have killed a person. Mr. Regalia is making a valid point when he states that there were other options open to officer Walsh. This tragedy did not have to happen. These people were on their own property and so was their dog, and yet they were the victims of someone whose job it is to protect them. It’s also difficult for me to understand how, after four months, this is still under investigation. This family deserves some honest answers and an end to this nightmare. If the SLO Police Department thinks that time will lessen the public’s interest in this, they are very wrong. I know that I will never forget reading this article and the horror of Bubber’s death. Colleen Ray Morro Bay

A solution to homelessness is housing

I have something to say to the people of the North County. Why are we always “studying“ the homeless problem? There is a solution staring us right in the face. We need housing for the homeless. What I am proposing is simple: Open up some housing. The city of Paso Robles has a piece of property it could use. The city isn’t doing anything with the old River Lodge property, and there are 23 vacant rooms there. If you put two sets of bunk beds per room, you’d take care of most of the people in the riverbed. It could work with very little renovation. Give the homeless a break. Here, you have the housing to make it work. I should know. I walk by there every day. I’m also a homeless person. I bring in $365 a month, and it would be nice to have a place to go, but it’s not likely. What can you do? Jeffrey Richard Paso Robles

Bikes should be taxed like cars are

The city of SLO has put out a vision statement on its website that states, “As a bicycle-friendly community, the city of SLO is leaving a positive footprint on the environment by encouraging commuters to shift from motor vehicles to bicycles, reducing the number of vehicle trips and miles traveled in the community, reducing traffic congestion, and improving air quality.” What this clearly means is that bicycles are no longer considered just a sport but a mode of transportation similar to what a car is. Cars are taxed to help maintain the roads. Bikes use the roads, and special bike lanes have been created costing LETTERS continued page 19

millions of dollars. It is time for the SLO County Board of Supervisors to declare a substantial flat annual tax on all bikes so this mode of transpiration can pay for its fair share of roads and public services. Philip Mordaunt SLO

Your story about the SLOPD only served to divide

I read the article about a “break-in” call and a dead dog (“Justice for Bubs,” Jan. 16). It was sad and unfortunate. I’ve had a break-in at my home and also called the police. Their response was swift and professional, and I feel safer in my own home now. A police officer puts his or her life in danger every day! Someone climbing through a broken window sounds like a dangerous situation to me. And being charged by an aggressive pit bull sounds dangerous as well. Police officers have a split second to make decisions, and I’m sure the video of this accident is evidence enough for San Luis Obispo Police Department Chief Deanna Cantrell and her communications manager to make the right decision about this unfortunate shooting. Our police chief has no obligation to share an internal investigation with the public. A three-page story, photo of the couple with their pet, and picketing signs only serves to enrage and anger this community. This sounds a little like some of the distorted “tweets” published in our news. And why does the Shredder bring up Chief Cantrell’s stolen gun in the same paper (“Keystone cops?” Jan. 16)? Shame on you! Christie Withers San Luis Obispo

Can we put partisan politics to the side?

It’s been a couple of days since I attended the Adam Hill/Stacy Korsgaden debate along with many other constituents in a packed house with standing room only. After listening to both candidates, I carefully considered their answers to the issues presented by our New Times moderator. Rather than add to the commentaries already out there in the media, here is what I heard about their individual approach to solving the problems we face as SLO County citizens: Stacy Korsgaden stated over and over that she would disregard partisan politics and listen to every citizen’s point of view regarding the issues faced by the county. Adam Hill said that when he took his office 12 years ago he could get whatever he wanted done easily. But with the political makeup of the current board it is difficult to get things done. I’ve read several articles posted by our local news agencies about the debate and was pleased to see they have been accurate and nonpartisan. My wish for this new year is for all of us to be able to put partisan politics aside and make quality decisions in our lives and in our county. Jim Clark Grover Beach

Did anyone count the number of times that Beraud’s opponent, 5th District incumbent Debbie Arnold, used the word “balance” at the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce forum the other night? That’s her mantra. But “balance as usual” is not going to meet today’s challenges. Bold plans for transitioning to renewable energy are needed. With our sunny skies, accessible open spaces, rooftops, and parking lots yet to be covered in solar panels, we can build much more solar energy. As for wind energy from off the coast, we already have valuable transmission lines connecting to the grid from Morro Bay and Diablo Canyon. Many living-wage jobs would be created in renewable energy, more than offsetting losses from the closure of Diablo. We are yearning to hear our elected officials say that an unprecedented increase in renewable energy is the key to a prosperous future. By electing Ellen, we can start the process. Kate Montgomery Atascadero

We have beach access regardless of who owns it

County residents and visitors enjoy the Cayucos/Morro Bay off-leash dog beach. Which is the very reason why the city need not worry about its conservation (“Morro Bay takes first steps in preserving its dog beach,” Jan. 16). Decades of unrestricted public use grant dogs and people access. It’s a legal doctrine called prescriptive rights. It doesn’t matter who owns the beach lots—Cayucos, Chevron, Morro Bay—the public has access rights. This right was exercised and affirmed in Pismo Beach several years ago. Why create a false need to preserve dog beach access? City Council wants to annex a large piece of Chevron property. The property has five lots. These aren’t regular city residential lots of 3,000 to 6,000 square feet. Each lot is acres of land. A requirement has been inserted into an agreement that says if the city will back the five-lot annexation with LAFCO, then the city can own the beach lots. Annexation in Morro Bay is approved by a vote of the people. The council needs a hook that convinces the public to vote for annexing acres of land into our city limits. However, ownership is irrelevant to access. And we don’t need acres of land annexed as the city flounders with a negative budget. Betty Winholtz Morro Bay

The time is now

A

t the women’s college I attended, alumnae returning for class reunions wear white in deference to the original suffragettes. Last weekend at the Women’s March, the dominant color was pink. In San Luis Obispo alone, 6,000 turned out to say, “The time is now,” embracing the mission of the Women’s March, which states: “We work to unify our nation’s diverse communities … to create change from the grassroots. We recognize that there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all.” I want to thank everyone for showing up, for standing together. And I want to thank the suffragettes for the equity I enjoy today, for giving me the right to vote by passing the 19th Amendment 100 years ago. It’s time to honor the enormous contributions of these women, while also honestly acknowledging their defects, which helped sow racial division and distrust. Our activist forebears were grievously imperfect, but their work eventually led to the Women’s Movement, introduction of the Equal Rights Amendment, Title IX, #MeToo, and increasing numbers of women in office. Today, women hold more than 20 percent of the seats in the U.S. House and Senate. A woman, Nancy Pelosi, is Speaker of the House. Communities across the nation are commemorating the centennial of the status-quo shattering 19th Amendment

to the Constitution in tandem with events celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters (LWV). In San Luis Obispo County, the League is hosting a luncheon on Feb. 22 featuring Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins, the only woman of color to have served as president of the national LWV (1998-2002). The luncheon is important because it marks our collective resolve to sustain democracy in a time of constitutional crisis. For those who may not know it, the League is the nation’s largest nonpartisan citizen organization. For 100 years it has supported our aspirations to a truly democratic system by working to advance voter rights, voter registration, and voter education. In fact, among other things, the group also fights to increase voter access by expanding early voting as well as automatic and online voter registration. The League has announced that “voting rights are under attack,” citing campaigns to force discriminatory voter ID and proofof-citizenship restrictions, reducing polling hours in communities of color, cutting early voting, and purging voters from the rolls. Obviously, the LWV may be nonpartisan, but “that does not mean a-political,” former SLO Mayor Jan Marx said to me. “We don’t tell anyone how to vote—we provide opportunities at the local, state and national level to study topics and find

consensus,” said Ann Havlik, the local League’s co-president. “It’s a sad measure of this country’s divide that many of our issues are now considered left-wing by some.” The League’s membership includes Republicans, Democrats, men, and people of color. Sadly, that has not always been the case. From the 1920s to WWII, the League refused general membership for black women. Historians also recently revealed a true and complete portrait of suffragist hero Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who publicly called black men “Sambos” and rapists. The iconic photo of women in white at the head of the famous 1913 suffragist parade in Washington, D.C., does not show the back of the line, where women of color were forced to march. League members justified their discrimination by claiming that white Southerners would not join the group alongside blacks. Instead, the national leadership allowed the establishment of “colored” leagues, betraying black women and League principles and bylaws. We cannot excuse, sugarcoat, or ignore racism if we hope to fulfill the promise of our democratic nation and achieve the joyful and impassioned visions expressed by thousands of San Luis Obispans parading up Higuera Street during the Women’s March. Carolyn JeffersonJenkins, among others, is bringing this racism to light—and by so doing, she is offering a path forward to healing. “The League of Women Voters centennial provides the perfect opportunity to not only celebrate the

passion, purpose, and perseverance of women of color who affiliated with the League, but to also elevate their contributions from the footnotes into the mainstream narrative of history,” Jefferson-Jenkins told me. The keynote speaker at the Feb. 22 event is the author of The Untold Story of Women of Color in the League of Women Voters. “We are more than a footnote!” she said. “It is both my honor and my obligation to make sure that the accomplishment of the women upon whose shoulders I stand are also celebrated. The function of history is to move us forward.” “The League’s past treatment of women of color is shameful,” Havlik said. “The centennial gives us the opportunity to commit to a future defined by diversity, equality, and inclusion.” “When the League of Women Voters is at its best, it is a powerful, influential organization,” noted Jefferson-Jenkins. With her guidance, we can acknowledge the League’s full history while joining hands to fulfill its goal to “empower citizens to shape better communities worldwide.” That community was on display at the Women’s March, where the color pink advanced our goals, not white.

The Shredder

Get off your soapbox!

A

s if I couldn’t get the liberal freedom takers any more pissed off at New Times, I thought I would just go ahead and try again this week. We’re going to talk about a group of anti-vaxxers on the Central Coast—wait, they want to be called ex-vaxxers ... wait, actually, they’re now calling themselves the Central Coast Health Coalition, which is kind of like the oil industry lobby calling itself Californians for Energy Independence. This coalition is so healthy, in fact, that Facebook put a disclaimer on the group’s page warning everyone who visits that the group discusses vaccines. “Before joining this group, read information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that can help answer questions you may have about vaccines,” the disclaimer states. You know your cause is in trouble when Facebook weighs in. But, guys, if you ask coalition members, the CDC is in on the vaccine hoax with the pharmaceutical companies and so is Facebook. In fact, everyone is in on the conspiracy—but coalition members. Only they know the truth. Don’t be sheeple people! After a vaccine grudge match transpired on New Times’ Facebook page over a My805Tix post for a showing of Vaxxed II: The People’s Truth (it’s kind of hard to read that without rolling my eyes and heaving a gigantic sigh), I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to touch

the whole vaccine thing for the foreseeable future, but then the Women’s March SLO had to go ahead and mess up that dream! How could you? Damnit! Now I have to—once again—stand up for the rights of people I know are wrong to speak their minds. God, I hate it when I have to do that. But. Here. I. Go. You leave me no choice! Our friendly neighborhood group of mothers against vaccinating their children because they apparently don’t believe in science when it comes to measles, polio, chicken pox, etc.—aka the “health” coalition, which doesn’t care about herd health or understand the concept of immunity—applied to have a booth in Mitchell Park during the Women’s March event on Jan. 18. Women’s March SLO (WMSLO) denied the application, saying that the mission of the coalition doesn’t align with that of the march, according to Andrea Chmelik, a spokesperson for the local chapter of the Women’s March. “Part of the mission of WMSLO is to work in solidarity to protect women’s rights, human rights, our safety, our health, and our planet. While WMSLO recognizes that many issues exist with the pharmaceutical industry, the movement to suppress the rate of vaccine use poses dangers to health and safety, and therefore does not align with WMSLO’s focus,” Chmelik said. It’s mothers against mothers here in

SLO, sheeple! Fair. Women’s March SLO paid for the permit to use the park and has every right to control who sets up booths during the event. What really got my gears grinding is this next part. Women who showed up to participate in the march were asked to wait across the street because the signs they held didn’t have slogans on them that Women’s March SLO organizers wanted associated with the march. So much so that organizers got San Luis Obispo Police Department officers to ask “health” coalition members to leave the park! Whatever happened to the invitation for people to “address your truth” on the signs they carried? “This rally and march is free and open to the public. Your signs are your personal expression of values you are fighting for,” according to the Women’s March SLO website. There’s nothing that says, if your truth doesn’t align with ours, you have to go across the street and hang out in the church parking lot because the rally isn’t actually open to “the” public; it’s only open to “our” public. It’s disappointing and a common complaint that’s been lobbied against the march from the beginning. If you don’t fit in, then get out!

And come on Women’s March SLO organizers! You didn’t think that the antivaxxers (Yes, that’s what you coalition people are!) were going to make a gigantic stink about having their speech rights squelched? They already have a freakin’ complex about being discriminated against. Meanwhile, frequent and outspoken vaxx-tavist (It’s like fracktavist, get it?) Nicole Dorfman compared the coalition’s plight and Women’s March concerns about public health to the “rationale used to segregate and oppress African Americans during the Jim Crow era; it was one of the things that Nazis leveled against Jews, that they were rats and they spread disease.” Really, Nicole? Wow. She continued by calling out these supposed “herd immunity” claims. “I don’t think they have a shred of evidence ... that unvaccinated people are more likely to spread disease in general,” Nicole said. Really? What about that whole polio thing? According to the CDC, polio has been eradicated in the U.S. for the last three decades. And yes, that is because of vaccines! But if Nicole wants to say all of that— and she obviously did—she has every right to. No matter how wrong it might be. And if the Women’s March is going to get on a soapbox about being inclusive, then it should be inclusive, even if it means cringing at the sight of the signs that people are carrying. ∆ The Shredder is always on a soapbox.

Toad the Wet Sprocket returns to SLO

I

t’s weird to think of Santa Barbara altrock band Toad the Wet Sprocket as a nostalgia band, but here we are 34 years after their inception. They were the subject of my first cover story in I think 1991 (our electronic archives don’t go back that far). They’d really started to take off in 1990 when Columbia Records signed them as they were recording their second album, Pale. Columbia also reissued their 1989 debut, Bread and Circus. I traveled to Santa Barbara with then Associate Editor Todd Kleffman to interview the band in bassist Dean Dinning’s parents’ basement, at least I think the basement belonged to the Dinnings. It was a long time ago. The band was about to release their breakthrough album, Fear (1991), which featured their first two big singles, “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean.” The album went on to be RIAA-certified platinum, which was a pretty big deal for a bunch of kids barely in their 20s who still lived at home. When they first formed as high school students, singer-songwriter Glen Phillips was just 15. They followed with Dulcinea (1994) and Coil (1997) and then sort of broke up as Phillips embarked on a solo career, but there was a 2002 reunion, and then the band basically reformed and started touring in 2006 and has kept going ever since. Original drummer Randy Guss eventually left the band in 2017, replaced by Josh Daubin, but guitarist Todd

Nichols is still there. They recorded New Constellation (2013) and Architect of the Ruin (2015), but as far as I know, nothing new is forthcoming. This Wednesday, Jan. 29, Toad the Wet Sprocket plays the Fremont Theater (doors at 7 p.m.; all ages; $36.69 to $60.15, and $148.13 VIP meet-and-greet, at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com). They have an impressive catalog of classics, such as “Something’s Always Wrong,” “Fall Down,” “The Moment,” “I Will Not Take These Things for Granted,” and many more. Should be a fun walk down memory lane! Also this week at the Fremont, don’t forget progressive bluegrass, folk, rock, country, and jazz influenced sextet Railroad Earth, which plays this Thursday, Jan. 23 (doors at 7 p.m.; all ages; $28.83 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo. com), with Marty O’Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra opening. Classic two-tone, ska, and new wave act The English Beat plays on Saturday, Jan. 25 (doors at 8 p.m.; all ages; $28.83 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com), with The Delirians opening. Founding member Dave Wakeling still fronts the band and sounds just like he did in the late ’70s and early-’80s. Finally, electronic music producer Minnesota takes the Fremont stage next Thursday, Jan. 30 (doors at 8 p.m.; all ages; $24.96 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo. com), with Thelem, Eastghost, and Call Me opening.

Apparently his new band has been hunkered down practicing, and now’s the time to unleash the music. “I decided that the world needed some new original songs so I put my head in a vice and squeezed until I heard a handful fall out,” Stoneman joked. “It’s kind of like movies … I never ever need to see a Batman-themed movie again. Give me the weird, fresh, and authentic.“ According to his new bio, “His lyrics reflect the breezy pace of life on the Central Coast and all the rich characters that have inspired the song stories and impressions. The band employs tempos that span the spectrum—from folk rock to funk to train beat barnburners. He’ll be joined by Zac Cornejo on drums, Bob Cooper on guitar, Adam Bauman on bass, and ‘Toes’ Cuff on keyboards.” The surf and art group, Forever Stoked, will also be there showing off some new and old paintings and prints.

New library cards feature digital art by local photographer

The Paso Robles City Library recently released a newly designed library card that features photorealistic artwork by digital artist and photographer Bruce Cook. To create the piece, Cook blended a photo of his niece’s daughter reading a book with a photo of a zebra from his archives. The scene whimsically depicts the two subjects as if they’re side by side outside the library. Without strictly defining the piece, Cook stated in a press release that it’s possible the zebra is part of the girl’s imagination, stirred by the words in the book she’s reading. “The scene recalls my own joy of being absorbed by books and the imagery they inspire,” Cook said in the release. To find out more about the new library card, call (805) 237-3870 or visit prcity.com/library. The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring St., Paso Robles.

Creating contrast Impressionist pastel painter Carol Timson Ball captures the Central Coast in its best light

T

hough artist Carol Timson Ball originates from the UK, where she received her formal art education, it is the pastoral imagery of the Central Coast that inspires much of her work, currently on display at Park Street Gallery in Paso Robles until Jan. 31. “It’s all doable, but it’s just what really catches your attention,” Timson Ball, who resides in Templeton, said of how she makes artistic choices. “Whether it’s flowers, trees, the way the shadow is falling on the grass, lupin in the grass, which way the sun is shining … art is 80 percent thinking and 20 percent doing.” Timson Ball’s style is both impressionistic and highly detailed. Rather than the thick, broad oil paint strokes that some impressionists employ, her use of pastels allows for a more intricate outcome. When looking closely at Timson Ball’s work, one can see how many tiny, precise strokes make up her masterpieces. In a painting like Pretty in Pink, the little pink flowers that Timson Ball depicts stand out not just for their bright color, but also the contrast that exists between these carefully detailed foreground florals and the more blended green grass and foliage in the

background. The greenery is indeed pretty in pink, as the title suggests: The flowers are like eye-catching accessories to an otherwise typical springtime hillside. It’s these small touches that make the painting pop. While she tends to stick to pastoral imagery in her paintings, Timson Ball steps out of this box with her renderings of structures, such as Mission San Juan Capistrano. “I like painting the missions because they are old and they have lovely texture,” Timson Ball said. “You’ve got that lovely architecture with the browns and the arches and the roof, and that lovely tile.” In her piece titled San Juan Capistrano, Timson Ball manages to set those beautiful browns of the California mission into a more colorful context, while still making the formidable mission the focus. Above the building, she paints a striking blue sky. Below, the ground is golden yellow. By juxtaposing the brown mission with contrasting warm and cool colors, Timson Ball achieves a surprising and visually interesting painting. The bright colors also help to enhance an otherwise neutral and monochromatic subject. Mission San Juan Capistrano is also

Sophia Takal (Green, Always Shine) directs this mystery-horror film about a group of female students stalked over their Christmas break.

love connections—the secret sauce of action movies! I probably saw the first Bad Boys, but I don’t remember it. I know I didn’t see the second. Does that matter here? Heck no. A slow-moving rock could catch on to this setup, and the two leads manage to make a good time out of a nothing storyline. Should it be set up for another film? Probably not. Do they do it anyway? Of course they do. Glen I, too, was surprised they teed up another sequel, but if the money keeps rolling in, why not? The film certainly has fun joking about Lowrey’s and Burnett’s ages, largely through the AMMO team of Mod Squad-esque youngsters. There’s irreverent Rafe (Charles Melton), who thinks Lowrey’s past his prime; sassy Kelly (Vanessa Hudgens), who’s beautiful and capable; tech wiz Dom (Alexander Ludwig), who’s sworn off violence because he’s too good at it. They’re all led by Rita (Paola Nunez), who used to date Lowrey and still harbors feelings for him. The real plot complication comes from Isabel (Kate del Castillo), Armando’s mother, who also shares a past with Lowrey. She’s directing her son’s revenge mission, and part of the plot’s fun is unraveling her and Lowrey’s connection. A couple of the first two films’ co-stars also return, including Joe Pantoliano as Capt. Howard and Theresa Randle as Burnett’s wife. In a nod of respect to the original two

films, their director Bay has a cameo as a wedding emcee. It’s all fun, and I wish I had more to say about the film, but there’s no subtext or layered meaning. What you see is what you get: a $90 million audience-pleasing spectacle with a pumping soundtrack, outsized action sequences, and a couple of megawatt stars who look like they’re having a blast collecting another fat paycheck. If that’s your jam, get thee to the theater. Anna When a movie starts with a whiteknuckle police chase that ends somehow with no police in sight, you know that making sense may not be the movie’s top priority. The fact is, this film is just plain funny—the bickering and antics work between these two leads and the supporting cast keeps the story moving along. The youngsters of AMMO prove to be Lowrey and Burnett’s saving grace time and time again, despite Lowrey’s reluctance to welcome in the new kids and their technology. Like you said, there isn’t a whole lot to say about this movie except that it’s exactly what you expect. The good news is it delivers on the laughs and action; just don’t expect more than that from this installment of the Bad Boys franchise. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

KID STUFF Robert Downey Jr. (left) stars as physician John Dolittle, in Dolittle, a film younger kids might like but adults won’t. MOVIES from page 39 It’s hard as an adult to critique a movie made for kids. Am I too jaded a moviegoer to look past mediocre animation and just admire the huge feats we’ve made in computer technology? Am I so disconnected from my child self that I can’t enjoy a movie absent drugs or sex or violence? Worst of all, am I too old (gasp) for fart jokes? These are the weighty questions I painstakingly mulled over as I watched Robert Downey Jr. talk to computer generated animals in Dolittle, yet another restoration of the 1967 tale about a doctor who learns to talk to, and prefers the company of, animals of all species. This year’s rendition strays away from the plot of the 1998 Dr. Dolittle that stars Eddie Murphy and circles back to a storyline closer to that of the original. Like in the 1967 film, this one is set in 19th century England and follows Dr. John Dolittle, who, in the 2020 rendition, retreats after his wife dies to live holed up in his manor with the many animals he’s rescued. Dolittle lives in solitude for years until a royal messenger comes knocking on his door, informing him that the queen of England is gravely ill and has personally requested his renowned medical opinion. Despite his initial reluctance, Dolittle agrees to treat the queen, who he finds has been poisoned with a dose of deadly nightshade. He and his animals embark on an adventure to find the only known antidote: the fruit of the Eden Tree. At a glance, Dolittle has everything

I would’ve loved to see in a movie as a child—cute and funny animals, a dangerous sea adventure to a mysterious island, royalty, and lots of British accents. Dolittle’s slapstick jokes got big laughs from the children in the inexplicably packed audience at my showing, and whenever something mildly sad happened to an animal, big “awes” followed. But for me, Dolittle missed the mark. As I watched the flat storyline and nonexistent character development play out before my eyes, I yearned for the deep ups and downs I once felt while watching movies like Finding Nemo (2003), Shrek (2001), and the Harry Potter installments (2001-2011) all those years ago: the desperation I endured when Nemo was taken from his father and the ocean and plopped into a tiny tank with strangers; or the way my friends and I copied Donkey and shouted, “And in the mornin’, I’m makin’ waffles!” at every sleepover for years after Shrek. Momentarily I thought that maybe I just love those movies because I was still a child when I first saw them. Maybe it’s nostalgia. But then I thought about Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005-2008) an animated show that aired on Nickelodeon and was made for children that I absolutely loved as an adult. When all is said and done, it doesn’t matter if something is made for kids or adults or if its rated G or R. What makes a movie good is a compelling story told through complex characters, and Dolittle simply didn’t have that. (106 min.) —Kasey Bubnash

BLAST FROM THE From then on, Connor is around a lot, and when he is, her family is almost normal. He plays with Mia’s little sister, takes them on a fishing trip, and encourages Mia to pursue a career in dance. Mia, who so clearly has never experienced the nurturing and love a child needs, begins to mistake Connor’s kindness for flirtation and develops romantic feelings for him. But it quickly becomes obvious that Connor isn’t as sweet as he’s been made out to be, and Mia finds out about a life of Connor’s that he’s never shared with her family. Arnold’s direction fools you into believing Connor might be one of the good ones, unveils him as the disgusting monster he really is, and then forces you almost onto his side once again at the end. On the flip side, the audience always knows what atrocities Mia is capable of. Despite her impossible attitude and, in some cases, criminal decisionmaking, she’s one of those ultracomplex characters you end up loving unconditionally, maybe because no one else in the movie does. In Fish Tank, all lines are blurred: good and bad, comedy and tragedy, mother and child, villain and hero, sexual and platonic relationships.

Jordan as civil rights attorney and activist Bryan Stevenson, who works to free death row inmates who are wrongfully convicted based on racial bias. The film is an adaptation of Stevenson’s memoir Just Mercy. While the story and the message behind the film are powerful, the delivery falls somewhat short, as most biopics unfortunately do. I completely understand the director’s desire to keep the characters as realistic as possible and leave out the dramatic overkill, but with a cast like Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, and Rob Morgan, surely there could have been more of a punch packed into their scripts. The film opens up in 1987 Alabama, when logger Walter McMillian (Foxx) is arrested for the murder of a young white woman, despite evidence proving his innocence. At the time of his arrest,

Pick

McMillian is out in the woods working, and before police stop him—this being one of the most powerful scenes in the film— McMillian looks to the sky, a small freedom he never knew he would be deprived of. It’s a memory that McMillian holds onto (and revisits through the film) as he awaits death row. Scenes like this carry the film, as it would otherwise be just a mundane and straightforward story. Cretton closely follows how the inmates are wrongfully convicted but also the attorney Bryan Stevenson who is defending them. Stevenson received a full scholarship to attend Harvard Law School; during his race and poverty litigation course, he worked for Stephen Bright’s Southern Center for Human Rights. The center represented death row inmates throughout the South, and Stevenson found his calling. After earning his degree, he takes on the McMillian case, his first case, and several others amid pushback from the community that can’t seem to reckon with the fact that an African American man was wrongfully convicted. With each appeal that Stevenson files and McMillian’s memories of life outside his lonely prison cell emerge, I just can’t seem to get over how one-dimensional the characters are. Larson is also given a small role as Stevenson’s coworker Eva Ansley, and (underrated) Rob Morgan is given the role of Herbert Richardson, another inmate awaiting his end and reliving the actions that led to his sentence. Racial injustice is at the forefront of the film, but it also touches upon a veteran’s PTSD that goes unchecked, corrupt law officials, and impoverished people who are victimized by law enforcement. All of these points are extremely relevant today, and I wish the film had challenged viewers to open their eyes to that. (137 min.) —Karen Garcia

Though this is an oft-told tale, with now eight film adaptations, Gerwig’s new version is a real standout, turning the story into a poioumenon, a work of art about its own creation. The best thing about Gerwig’s version is how she pays tribute to Alcott, who never married or had any children of her own, and who after the publication of her famed and incredibly popular novel, often complained how her publisher forced her to create the expected happy ending. Gerwig pulls off the neat trick of having it both ways—creating an ending that honors the book and its author. I really loved this film, but grab the tissues—it just may have you ugly-crying.

This is a remarkable technical achievement. The photography makes it appear as if the film is shot in one long and continuous take, which lends the picture an immediacy and an immersive quality that makes this terrific but simple story even more engaging. Apparently, the basis for the story came from director Mendes’ grandfather Alfred Mendes, a war hero who would enthrall his grandkids with stories that were eventually published in his posthumous memoir. I won’t be a bit surprised if in addition to Best Cinematography, 1917 also wins Best Picture and Best Director (though Pedro Almadóvar is currently favored in the category) at the upcoming Feb. 8 Academy Awards.

The Palm, Stadium 10 South Korean director Bong Joon Ho plays with genre and societal commentary in this dark comedy thriller about a penniless family’s unsavory but satisfying infiltration into a wealthy family’s household. We’re all capable of being both the heroes and antagonists of our own stories from time to time—able to make healthy and rational decisions in some situations while at the same time perfectly adept at self-destruction in others. And in one way or another, we’re all parasites too. That’s the running theme in Parasite, the most recent foreign-language film brought to us by director Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host), which centers on Ki-taek Kim (Song Kang Ho) and his destitute family’s scrappy struggle for easy money.

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? The Palm Co-directors Josh and Benny Safdie (Good Time) helm this crime-dramedy that follows charismatic jeweler Howard “Howie” Ratner (Adam Sandler), who finds himself balancing family, business, and increasingly threatening adversaries after making a high-stakes bet. This film might make you feel uncomfortable watching it, but there’s no denying its powerful energy. It’s among 2019’s best! I should mention, however, that the film has been praised by critics but not so much by audiences: The Rotten Tomatoes score is 93 percent critics to 54 percent audiences. I’m guessing a lot of attendees didn’t like the way it made them feel, or they simply didn’t connect with Ratner’s humanity. Even though he’s a horrible person, I couldn’t help but root for him to win, perhaps because he’s a classic underdog. It’s a draining but brilliant piece of cinema. (135 min.) ∆ —Glen

“S

o, are you going to jump?” “No, I don’t think so,” I replied. “But I reserve the right to change my mind!” This recent conversation with a friend is running through my head as my husband, Bret, and I escort six giggly preteens through the Santa Maria Town Center. It’s my older daughter’s 13th birthday party, and she’s ready to flip out. Literally. We take the mall’s escalator upstairs and follow our two daughters and their friends, who’ve all been here before: the Rockin’ Jump trampoline park. These places are basically the modernday equivalent of a roller rink. I grew

up going to birthday parties where we strapped eight wheels to our feet and zoomed around in circles to “Walk Like and Egyptian” and the Ghostbusters theme song. After trying not to break any bones for an hour, we’d gather in a slightly sweaty party room for pizza, cake, and plastic favors. Now the kids slip on special grippy socks, throw their stuff in a locker, and get jumping. Meanwhile, I’m praying no one breaks any bones. Rockin’ Jump has the classic birthday party rooms, but it’s also got parents in mind—we walk past a lounge area with big-screen TVs and couches, a snack bar, and massage chairs. This place gets it. We find my older daughter and her gymnastics teammate doing crazy flips onto an inflated pad. I see why she wanted to come here—I watch her do numerous Barani flips (midair 180-degree turns), a few front tucks, and a front layout or two. After she’s had her fill of the tricks area, we follow her to the place of open bedlam. Seriously, it’s nearly 20 trampolines with dozens of kids jumping, flipping, hopping, and somehow not squishing each other. I don’t regret not jumping today—there aren’t any adults playing out there, and it’s a treat to watch my daughters and their friends have such unbridled fun. For the record, I likely would have jumped if it wasn’t such a busy Saturday, so I still reserve the right to change my mind. Next time. ∆

CLIMB HIGH My younger daughter brought a friend to Rockin’ Jump—and they took advantage of the climbing wall between bouncing on the indoor park’s trampolines.

Original heirloom The chef couple behind Heirloom Catering pairs new brick-and-mortar bistro with Wines of the West tasting room

T

he boyfriend/girlfriend catering chefs known for their ultraseasonal, locally sourced ingredients had a restaurant in mind from the start. “We’ve been catering for the last 3 1/2 years, and we always planned on using catering as a stepping stone to brick-andmortars,” said Matthew Rogers. He and pastry chef Brittney Yracheta softly opened up Heirloom, a new Templeton restaurant on the 46 West, in November, in an area where mostly wineries and oak trees dominate the landscape. Winery work folk needed a place for their lunch break, and visitors now have a new food spot to nourish themselves between wine tastings—including tasting onsite, as Heirloom shares a contemporary, Western cowboy-inspired barn space with the latest collective of local wineries called Wines of the West. The collective includes Purple Cowboy, a Paso winery named from the Central Coast’s ancestral cowboy winemakers on horses known for their purple wine-stained teeth. “This one kind of jumped in our laps,” Rogers said. He met those involved with Wines of the West and Clayhouse Winemaker Blake Kuhn while working on the new Heirloom space. Rogers said he still needs to drink “bottles upon bottles” to further his research. “It’s a great company to work with, and you can’t pass up on this location. It’s a great spot, especially come summer,” the chef said. Chef Rogers (who gained delicious local fame as executive chef of Hatch in Paso and has a decade of impressive chef work in LA) is serving hero sandwiches, salads, rotating bites, and upscale plates. Rogers said he tends to believe chefs can either buy run-of-the-mill produce and have to: 1) “chef the s&*t out of it to

OUT YONDER ON 46 Located along Highway 46 West, hungry and thirsty folk can find the newest stop on the wine trail. In the front, Heirloom Kitchen offers an exciting farm fresh lunch menu, while Clayhouse and Purple Cowboy wines are poured in a traditional wine salon setting. Out back is the casual, eclectic CANtina, focused on canned wines from If You See Kay and Alloy Wine Works.

make it awesome” or 2) find yourself some top-quality ingredients and let them “sing for themselves.” “We’re definitely No. 2,” he said. “We try to source the best possible quality ingredients we can find. We just frame what a farmer does … we highlight what they do and put it on a plate.” When I first ate at Heirloom, red kabocha squash soup was listed as a chef Rogers’ special, and chef Yracheta’s fresh baked lemon, ginger, and salted chocolate chip cookies were highlighted as dessert. These cookies are not your typical sugar bombs. Yracheta is a French pastry graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena. She’s got the touch. For the rapidly rotating menu

of specials, Rogers and Yracheta show appreciation for their farmers by listing all their names on a proper love note pinned to the wall. “I don’t want to tie myself down to any season,” said Rogers, who will design his menu around the box of veggies he receives fresh from the farmer or farmers’ market that morning. “Yes, we have seasons, but there’s so much going on in between … .” A few hours after these ingredients are picked, these local delights are the bites we devour on the menu. Chef Rogers’ refreshing and light shaved vegetable salad perfectly illustrates Heirloom’s mission of sourcing a variety of locally farmed food for the lunch menu—it’s made with Bautista Farms beets, Francisco Velazquez Farm carrots, Dragon Spring Farms apples, Big John’s Farm fennel, mixed with blue cheese and walnuts and dressed in a citrus vinaigrette. Diners can order at the counter and find a patio spot to eat, and then, while waiting for the food to come up, they can grab a canned chardonnay from Central Coast Alloy Wine Works or a can of If You See Kay Central Coast sangria from the fridge in the CANtina, or they can opt for a full Wines of the West tasting kitty-

corner to the Heirloom. I recently tried something that would make my Italian relatives eccitato: Padrino’s porchetta (pork shoulder), served with white polenta, bitter greens, and wild fennel pollen. If you are to try anything with pork on Heirloom’s menu, you’ll want to walk on over to the wine bar for your glass of elegant, full-bodied 2017 Clayhouse syrah from Paso Robles. I also recommend a tasting of either the Purple Cowboy Bordeaux blend or a glass of Purple Cowboy sparkling wine, two of my favorites from the tasting. The opulent, fine-crafted Bordeaux blend is mostly cab, with merlot, cab franc, and petit verdot, with grapes all hand-picked in Paso. I tried intensely complex wine with chef’s melt-in-yourmouth braised beef cheeks in a wellbalanced hazelnut gremolata and jus, served with a pomme purée that was light and dreamy-creamy. “I personally like my Bordeauxs blended more than straight cabs,” Kuhn said. “Aromatically, there’s a lot more going on, and texturally as well.” Rogers’ food is meant for Kuhn’s wine.

Beyond ultra-local ingredients, what makes Heirloom special is the partnership with Wines of the West. Just as Rogers and Yracheta intuitively knew how well their culinary talents would collide effortlessly in beautiful meals, so they had an inkling that Kuhn’s elegant local wines and fun and refreshing cans of wine would also pair well. “We wanted both the food to not only highlight the wine, but the wine to highlight the food as well,” Rogers said. “And hopefully we’ve done that.” ∆ Flavor writer Beth Giuffre is riding off into the sunset, pardner.

D INE ’N’ DISH Clayhouse white wine, Paso Robles

The Clayhouse White Blend won my favor among the Wines of the West tasting selection (see this week’s Flavor feature). The 2018 blend of 53 percent Clairette blanche and 47 percent grenache blanc is soft and expressive, with attractive aromas of lemongrass and pineapple, continuing into a well-balanced, viscous body, and finishing with citrus. For me, it’s the perfect wine. Winemaker Blake Kuhn loves to cook from scratch, using the herbs and vegetables from his family garden, which proves to me he’s a fearless creative, and it makes perfect sense why his wines taste so good. The 2018 Clayhouse white blend, Willow Creek District AVA, is available by the bottle for $25 at Wines of the West, 3750 Highway 46 West, Templeton.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of: ROBERT ALBERT MADDOX A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by TAMMY LAWSON and GUY MADDOX in the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo. The Petition for Probate requests that TAMMY LAWSON and GUY MADDOX be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: February 25, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept: 9, in Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo, located at 1035 Palm Street, Room 385, San Luis Obispo, CA 93408.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW. STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 083853-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: I’ve gathered all of the long-term, big-picture horoscopes I wrote for you in the past few weeks and bundled them in one place: bit.ly/2020BigPicture ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) declared that English writer Lord Byron (1788-1824) was the greatest genius of the 19th century. Here’s an interesting coincidence: Byron regarded Goethe as the greatest genius of the 19th century. I bring this to your attention, Aries, in the hope that it will inspire you to create a similar dynamic in your own life during the coming months. As much as possible, surround yourself with people whom you think are wonderful and interesting and enlivening—and who think you are wonderful and interesting and enlivening.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Learning to love is difficult, and we pay dearly for it,” wrote the serious and somber author Fyodor Dostoevsky. “It takes hard work and a long apprenticeship,” he added. All that’s true, I think. To hone our ability to express tenderness and warmth, even when we’re not at our best, is the most demanding task on earth. It requires more courage than that of a soldier in the frenzy of battle, as much imagination as a poet, and diligence equal to that of an architect supervising the construction of a massive suspension bridge. And yet on the other hand—contrary to what Dostoevsky believed—sometimes love is mostly fun and inspiring and entertaining and educational. I suspect that the coming weeks will be one of those phases for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus-born Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) was a renowned German composer who lived most of his life in Germany and Austria. He became so famous and well-respected that England’s Cambridge University offered him an honorary degree if he would visit the campus. But Brahms was too timid to risk crossing the English Channel by boat. (There were no airplanes and Chunnel in those days.) He declined the award. I beg you not to do anything even remotely like that in the coming weeks, Taurus. Please summon the gumption necessary to claim and gather in all you deserve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, the coming weeks will be one of those rare times when you can safely engage with influences that might normally rattle you. You’ll be protected as you wander into the unknown and explore edgy mysteries. Your intuition will be highly reliable if you make bold attempts to solve dilemmas that have previously confounded and frustrated you. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to get a bit wild and exploratory, this is it.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is regarded as one of England’s greatest painters. He’s best known for his luminous and imaginative landscapes. His experimental use of light and color influenced the impressionist painters who came after him. But the weird thing is that after his death, many of his works were lost for decades. In 1939, a famed art historian found more than a hundred of them rolled up like tarpaulins in the basement of an art museum. Let’s apply this event as a metaphor for what’s ahead in your life, Cancerian. I suspect that buried or lost elements of your past will soon be rediscovered and restored. I bet it will be fun and illuminating!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In my early adult life, I lived below the poverty line for many years. How did that impact me? Here’s one example: I didn’t own a mattress from ages 23 to 39, but rather slept on a two-inch thick foam pad that lay directly on the floor. I’m doing better now, thank you. But my early experiences ensured that I would forever have profound empathy for people who don’t have much money. I hope this will serve as inspiration for you, Leo. The next seven weeks will be the Empathy Building Season for you. The cosmos will reward you if you build your ability to appreciate and understand the pains and joys of other humans. Your compassion will be tonic for both your mental and physical health.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Ancient Greek author Theophrastus was a scientist before the concept of “scientist” existed. His writings on botany were influential for hundreds of years after his death. But some of his ideas would be considered unscientific today. For example, he believed that flute music could heal sciatica and epilepsy. No modern research suggests that the charms of the flute can literally cure physical ailments like those. But there is a great deal of evidence that music can help relieve pain, reduce anxiety, reduce the side effects of drugs, assist in physical therapy, and even make you smarter. And my reading of the current astrological omens suggests that the therapeutic effects of music will be especially dramatic for you during the next three weeks.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): How well do you nurture yourself, dear Scorpio? How diligent are you in providing yourself with the sustenance that ensures your body, mind, and soul will thrive? Are you imaginative in the ways that you keep yourself excited about life? Do you take strong measures to avoid getting attached to mediocre pleasures, even as you consistently hone your focus on the desires that lead you to joy and deep satisfaction? The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to meditate on these questions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Seven books of the Bible’s Old Testament refer to a magical place called Ophir. It was a source of exotic finery and soulful treasures like gold, peacocks, jewels, frankincense, and precious sandalwood. One problem: No one, not even a biblical scholar, has ever figured out where it was. Zimbabwe? India? Tunisia? Its location is still unknown. I am bringing this to your attention because I suspect that in 2020 there’ll be a good chance you’ll discover and gain access to your own metaphorical Ophir: a fount of interesting, evocative resources. For best results, be primed and eager to offer your own skills and riches in exchange for what this fount can provide to you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn filmmaker Steven Soderbergh says it’s crucial for us to have a well-developed story about who we are and what we’re doing with our lives. It’s so important, he feels, that it should be the trigger that flings us out of bed every morning. We’ve got to make our story so vivid and interesting that it continually motivates us in every little thing we do. Soderbergh’s counsel is always good to keep in mind, of course, but it will be even more so for you in the coming months. Why? Because your story will be expanding and deepening, and you’ll need to make the necessary adjustments in how you tell your story to yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’m a big fan of self-editing. For example, every horoscope I write evolves over the course of at least three drafts. For each book I’ve published, I have written but then thrown away hundreds of pages that I ultimately deemed weren’t good enough to be a part of the finished text. And yet now and then, I have created a poem or song in one rapid swoop. My artistic artifact is exactly right the first time it flows out of me, with no further tinkering needed. I suspect you’re now entering a phase like that, Aquarius. I’m reminded of poet Allen Ginsberg’s operative principle: “first thought, best thought.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Who don’t you want to be, Pisces? Where don’t you want to go? What experiences are not necessary in your drive to become the person you were born to be? I encourage you to ask yourself questions like those in the coming weeks. You’re entering a phase when you can create long-term good fortune for yourself by knowing what you don’t like and don’t need and don’t require. Explore the positive effects of refusal. Wield the power of saying NO so as to liberate yourself from all that’s irrelevant, uninteresting, trivial, and unhealthy. ∆
