Arnold, Peschong take leads in North County supervisor races

T

he San Luis Obispo County Republican Party’s Atascadero headquarters was abuzz at 9:30 p.m. on March 3, as a packed room—decked out with American flags, Trump 2020 gear, and a life-sized cardboard cutout of Donald and Melania Trump—readied for an update on the day’s election results. The latest tallies gave them reason to celebrate. As of 11:15 p.m. on March 3 (the last update before New Times’ press time), incumbent SLO County Supervisors John Peschong and Debbie Arnold held commanding leads in the races for 1st District and 5th District supervisor, respectively. Peschong led challenger Stephanie Shakofsky, 67 percent to 33 percent; and Arnold led her challenger, Ellen Beraud, 57 percent to 43 percent. Both frontrunners expressed cautious optimism on March 3, while noting that the final tallies wouldn’t likely be known for several days. If the results do hold, they’d secure a continued Republican majority on the SLO County Board of Supervisors, which has been in power since 2017. But thousands of ballots are still left to count—and a majority of those are expected to lean blue. The volatile nature of the presidential primary meant that many local Democrats waited to submit mail-in ballots at the last minute, according to party leaders. The election night results only counted mail-in ballots that were received before Saturday, Feb. 29, as well as votes cast at the ballot box. At Beraud’s election party in Atascadero, a few blocks away at the Wild Fields Brewhouse, that was the mantra keeping spirits up. “I know a lot of Democrats were holding onto their ballots. I’m not discouraged. We just have to be patient,” Beraud told New Times. “I wish I could go to bed tonight knowing I won, but it’s

Oceano’s fire tax narrowly failing Oceano’s Measure A-20, a parcel tax that would have maintained its end of the Five Cities Fire Authority agreement, had lots of support from voters but, so far, not enough to meet the needed two-thirds majority for it to pass. On March 1, two days before the election, the Oceano 911 Committee for Measure A-20 hosted an impromptu car parade that launched from Seabreeze Mobile Home Park along Cienega Street. Multiple cars had red signs taped on them that read, “Yes on A-20, Rapid Fire Response” in English and Spanish. Karen White, an Oceano Community Services

District board member and member of the A-20 committee, told New Times the parade was a last-minute effort to get the vote out and gain support for the measure. The proposed parcel tax would have cost homeowners in the district an annual amount of $180, about $15 a month, bringing in roughly $422,000 a year. Those funds would have secured rapid response times for medical emergencies and fire protection services, 24/7 staffing, and a third full-time firefighter. According to unofficial election results, the measure had a total of 826 votes—63 percent— in favor of the proposed parcel tax and 478 votes against it. NEWS continued page 6

White said she felt it was a pretty good turnout for the measure, but she was let down overall. “I was kind of disappointed that only about a third of the folks voted,” she said. Oceano has a population of 7,286, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau data, but there were only a total of 1,304 votes counted as of press time. White said the whole point of putting the measure on the ballot was to find out how the residents of Oceano felt about fire service and what level of service they wanted. Now that Measure A-20 has been scrapped, White said the district probably wouldn’t discuss its next steps until the final count is announced by the San Luis Obispo County Clerk’s Office in April. Looking forward, the district has options, she said. “I mean we’re going to go ahead and negotiate with the county and see what divestiture involves, I know that, but that will take months and months,” White said. The district is officially out of the Five Cities Fire Authority joint powers agreement—an agreement of services paid for by Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano—but services will be provided by the Fire Authority until June 30, 2021. “The Oceano Community Services District will be working through the next year to find the best, most economical, most efficient fire protection for Oceano and they will not go without fire protection,” White said. —Karen Garcia

State school bond shrouded by confusion unlikely to pass Chances are looking bleak for a California school bond that would allow the state to funnel $15 billion into public school and college facilities improvement projects, and many Central Coast educators aren’t surprised. They’re blaming, at least partially, a confusing name—Proposition 13—for the lack of support. “Nobody wants to be called Prop. 13,” said Maggie White, public information officer for the Santa Maria-Bonita School District. “Just like nobody wants to be named Adolf Hitler.” On the morning of March 4, nearly 56 percent of Californians had voted against Proposition 13, according to the Secretary of State’s semi-official election results. Roughly 56 percent of Santa Barbara County voters, along with 65 percent of SLO County residents, voted against the school bond. There were still a number of votes left to be counted, but as of March 4, Proposition 13 was shaping up to be one of the few statewide school bonds voted down by Californians. In the past 25 years, only one K-12 education bond has been defeated, according to the Los Angeles Times. White said the name “Proposition 13” is too tied up with the Proposition 13 of 1978, a property-tax-cutting measure that was overwhelmingly approved by voters decades ago and has since shaped California’s politics. With recent talk of reforming the 1978 Proposition 13 and an upcoming initiative on the November ballot that actually would impact the ’78

VIEWER DISCRETION Proposition 13, this election’s Proposition 13 was highly confusing for voters, she said. Although the 2020 bond has nothing to do with the famous Proposition 13 of the past, White said there were many falsities about this year’s bond spreading throughout social media. White has worked in education for years, and throughout that time she’s seen a lot of local and statewide bonds come and go. “But none of them—none of them—have ever had this kind of misinformation,” she told New Times. “If this had been called Proposition 16, none of this would have happened.” If approved, Proposition 13 of 2020 would authorize the state to sell $15 billion in general obligation bonds to fund construction and facility improvement projects at public schools, community colleges, and universities across the state. About $9 billion of that would go to preschool and K-12 schools, $4 billion to universities, and $2 billion would be used at community colleges. Paying off the bonds with interest would cost the state an estimated $740 million a year for roughly 35 years, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office. The funding wouldn’t automatically go to schools in need, according to Ryan Pinkerton, assistant superintendent of business services at the San Luis Coastal Unified School District. Pinkerton said if Proposition 13 passes, school districts hoping for funding would have to apply, a highly competitive process that would also require districts to come up with a share of their own matching funding. So even if Proposition 13 does pass, Pinkerton isn’t entirely convinced San Luis Coastal would benefit. He’s also concerned that if it does pass, that could make SLO County community members more hesitant to support much-needed local school bonds in the future. But, Pinkerton said Proposition 13 could really help dilapidated school districts in areas that rarely support school bonds, which makes it really difficult to carry out renovations on school grounds. “For local school districts,” Pinkerton said, “there really isn’t built into our budgets big facility improvements and changes.” —Kasey Bubnash

Korsgaden and Hill neck and neck for District 3 supervisor

It may take days, or even weeks, to determine the winner in the 3rd District SLO County supervisor race. As of 11:15 p.m. on March 3, challenger candidate Stacy Korsgaden held a narrow 304-vote lead over incumbent Supervisor Adam Hill, with 13,618 votes counted. Thousands more are still to be counted

in the coming days, according to SLO County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong. More than 20,000 SLO County ballots were not tallied on Election Day. Those remaining include mail-in ballots received after March 1 and provisional ballots. Gong said he plans to share a more precise breakdown of the outstanding ballots on March 4 or 5. The next updated results will be posted on March 6. Given the narrow margin in the District 3 race, the final outcome may not be known for several days, Gong said. “We’ll complete the canvass as expeditiously as we can,” Gong told New Times. “We’re processing the mountains of vote-by-mail ballots that we have.” In 2018, a tight race for 4th District supervisor between Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding dragged out 17 days after Election Day. Gong said the public should expect something similar for the 3rd District this year. Korsgaden, a Grover Beach insurance agent running for her first elected office, told New Times she was “very excited” to see herself in the lead on election night. “I was pleased to see we were definitely in the running,” she said. “I knew that I’d given it 110 percent. Whatever happened, I was going to be happy with.” Hill did not respond to a request for comment before press time. The neck-and-neck results follow a venomous stretch of the campaign. After weeks of Korsgaden attack ads against Hill, the race ended with a salacious robocall to voters that feigned association with the KKK and expressed sarcastic support for Hill. After the SLO County District Attorney announced an investigation into the robocall, longtime political activist and Hill critic Kevin P. Rice came forward as being behind it. The case is under review and no charges have been filed, the DA’s Office said on March 3. Korsgaden continued to disavow and condemn the robocall. She told New Times that she’s met Rice but doesn’t know him. “It was just so ugly and unnecessary. It threw me for a loop,” she said. “It was too bad that had to happen in the ninth inning of the campaign.” —Peter Johnson

District 17 State Senate seat down to Laird, Nohrden

Unofficial election results across San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz counties—state Senate District 17—show Democratic candidate John Laird and Republican candidate Vicki Nohrden will now face off in November for the seat. Laird told New Times that he didn’t have a party to watch the election results trickle in on March 3 but he did attend six events in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. “I started in Monterey, went to the Democratic headquarters, went to two supervisors’ parties in Santa Cruz, to Watsonville for a ballot measure event, and then went to a community college bond campaign,” he said. “So, I didn’t have [an event] myself; I just went to everybody else’s.” Laird earned a combined total of 72,789 votes, according to preliminary results. He dominated Santa Cruz County with 22,666 votes and Monterey County with 18,374, but fell slightly behind Nohrden in San Luis Obispo County by approximately 11,000 votes and Santa Clara County by 312. Although votes fell short for Laird in SLO County, Laird said, “I’ve been to San Luis Obispo 25 times in the last 12 months, and so I’m going to continue to work hard there. I think it’ll be very close in November.” Laird’s platform includes water resources, climate change that’s affected the state’s fire seasons, and affordability. In the No. 2 spot for the state Senate seat is lone Republican candidate Nohrden, who’s so far earned a total of 67,736 votes districtwide. Nohrden’s platform includes education, affordability, reducing taxes, and homelessness. The latter she said is a top concern among voters she’s spoken to. “I think that broad support across the counties and especially those two counties [San Luis Obispo and Santa Clara] really shows me that a lot of people are ready for change, and I’m ready to represent that change,” she told New Times. She wants to let residents districtwide NEWS continued page 7

Building up SLO approves 75 units of downtown housing, overruling complaints about proximity to historic homes

A

four-story, 5,241-square-foot development approved in downtown San Luis Obispo on Feb. 26 is wedged between three historic houses. The Pollard House, which dates back to 1876, is on one side; the Victorian-style Jack House and Gardens is on the other side; and the 140-year-old Norcross House is across the street. The project, slated to cover the combined lots of 545 Higuera and 486 Marsh streets, would rise above all three historic buildings—providing space for ground-floor retail, eight hotel suites, and 39 market-rate apartment units on top. “This area has been earmarked for more density and more retail,” said Joel Snyder of design firm Ten Over Studio, who spoke on behalf of the applicant at the SLO Planning Commission meeting on Feb. 26. “We’re providing much-needed housing downtown.” While the commission ultimately approved the project in a 5-1 vote, the green light came after a tense dialogue between commissioners, city staff, residents, and the developer. While SLO continues to implement a vision for its downtown that’s centered on taller, infill

development and housing, locals remain divided about how to best balance the city’s future with its past. Residents and commissioners expressed concerns about the size and design of the project and how it would clash with the surrounding historic buildings. “This neighborhood is at a tipping point,” said James Papp, a local historian and architectural preservationist. “It’s at a point where it could all go wrong or it could preserve its essential quality.” To varying degrees, three commissioners echoed Papp’s reservations, with Commissioner Robert Jorgensen voting against the project as designed. “I can’t believe there isn’t some viable thinking that could be done to create better compromises in this neighborhood,” Jorgensen said. “It just feels like we’re going too far too fast.” Speaking on behalf of newly formed citizen group San Luis Architectural Preservation, attorney Babak Naficy alleged that the city could be violating the California Environmental Quality Act by approving the project. While SLO claimed the project was exempt from environmental review because it’s on an

guardians that an earthquake drill that had been scheduled for first period that morning had gone awry. The school’s intercom system has a series of preset emergency announcements, according to the email, and instead of pressing the earthquake drill button, an employee accidentally hit the emergency lockdown preset. It was a simple human error that caused some confusion, according to SLO High School Principal Leslie O’Connor, but he said the mistake was corrected and all teachers, parents, and students were informed of the mishap within the hour. And on the bright side, O’Connor told New Times, “Students were well-trained.” Students and teachers at the school reacted appropriately to the faux lockdown, with individuals indoors hunkering down in their classrooms, and those outside moving away from campus as trained. O’Connor said that while the school is working to ensure this kind of error doesn’t occur again in the future, accidents do happen. But one SLO High School student wants more than just a promise to try harder. The student, who requested to remain anonymous for privacy reasons, was in first period when the lockdown announcement rang out over the intercom. At first, the student said she and her classmates didn’t believe the lockdown was real.

Earthquake drill gone wrong causes confusion at SLO High Teachers, staff, and students at SLO High School had a chaotic morning on Feb. 28 when what was supposed to be a standard earthquake drill turned into a lockdown that students thought was a real emergency. In an email sent to SLO High School families at about 9 a.m. on Feb. 28, administrators informed parents and

infill site, Naficy argued that the historic homes nearby negated that exemption. “The infill exception here is really intended to be applied where you can clearly see that there are no potential impacts or conflicts with the surrounding area—and that’s not the case here,” Naficy said. In his public comments, Naficy described the SLO preservationist group members as “concerned about not just the pace of development, but the effect that it has on the architectural integrity and historic resources of the city.” “This project does sharply contrast in scale with the historic resources immediately adjacent to it,” he claimed. The developer team appeared to bristle at the critical comments and declined to entertain further revisions to the building’s design. The SLO Planning Commission had already weighed in on the project at a prior meeting, and the developers felt that they’d followed its direction.

a few more feet, property owner Taylor Judkins responded: “I don’t mean this to be offensive or short or anything, but you’re wrong.” “If you take the step back even 2 feet, it eliminates bedrooms,” he said. After several more minutes of discussion, the commission voted to approve the project. “We gave the applicant some direction, and I think they’ve followed that direction,” Commissioner Mike Wulkan concluded. For its next agenda item, the Planning Commission approved another four-story mixed-use development downtown— located less than a block away from the prior project on Higuera Street. “The Lofts at the Creamery” will include ground-floor retail and 36 apartment units. The pair of developments are closely aligned with the priorities of the City Council, officials said.

‘We’ve got very clear direction to support housing projects, in the downtown core in particular.’ —Michael Codron, SLO community development director

“We believe we’re here again because our project’s aesthetic choices were seen as too contemporary,” Snyder said. “What we set out to accomplish was a revised project that uses the materials that are recognizably SLO—brick and stucco.” At one point, when Commissioner Chuck Stevenson wondered whether the architects could set back the second story

Times, “and others became so panicked that they couldn’t move.” Then when another announcement was made telling students and teachers to go outside in preparation for an earthquake drill, the student said everyone pretty much assumed the lockdown had been an accident, “since if there was a shooter on campus, they probably wouldn’t call an earthquake drill.” Things calmed down after that, but the student said she felt anxious for the rest of first period, and some other students had trouble focusing for the rest of the day. Something should be done to make sure that an accident like this isn’t so easy to make, she said. “Is it OK for a lockdown drill to not be called a drill if the impact on students is so severe?” the student wrote to New Times. Emergency drills and their psychological impacts on students have been at the center of a national debate over how to keep kids prepared for school shooting incidents in ways that won’t cause increased anxiety around the issue. It’s not always easy for schools to balance both, according to Josh Peters, a SLO County Behavioral Health program supervisor in the Prevention and Outreach Division, which in part provides counseling services to kids on school grounds. Whenever there’s a widely publicized school shooting, Peters said, “the level of anxiety definitely goes up on campuses among all the students and staff.” Those emotions are especially difficult to navigate for students who have already suffered some kind of trauma, and Peters said active shooter and emergency

drills can trigger an intense emotional response. That’s especially true in situations where students aren’t aware that a drill is fake. Once triggered, it can take students a long time to calm down and focus again in the classroom. So Peters said it’s always best practice to let students know when a drill is happening, which he said local schools typically do. “I do believe that schools do a good job of being trauma informed and notifying students,” Peters told New Times. “I think it is a rare occurrence when something kind of goes sideways.” —Kasey Bubnash

Staying in school SLO County school districts work to lower rates of suspensions and chronic absenteeism

W

ith the state’s data on school and student performance in 2019 officially available to the public, several school districts in SLO County are working to address high rates of suspensions and absenteeism. Kids who aren’t in school aren’t learning, according to Joseph Williams, director of student services at the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District. That’s problematic at all grade levels, but especially when it comes to the younger grade-school children who are learning basic reading and math skills. “If a kid is not at grade level by the third grade,” Wiliams told New Times, “they are going to struggle.” So Paso Robles Joint Unified is taking this data seriously, he said. The California Department of Education released its 2019 school dashboard data on December 12, 2019, and since then, schools across the state and SLO County have been assessing the newly available statistics from the 2018-19 school year. The dashboard includes rates of graduation, suspensions, chronic absenteeism, and English learner progress, along with test scores and analysis of students’ college and career readiness. While SLO County districts largely sit right around the 2019 statewide average in most categories, rates of suspensions and especially chronic absenteeism are higher than ideal. Paso had the highest rates of suspensions in the county during the 201819 school year, and Cayucos Elementary district had the highest rates of chronic absenteeism, with 15.6 percent of K-8 students missing 10 percent or more of expected days of attendance—a 9.9 percent increase from the previous year. About 6.6 percent of the Paso district’s 7,244 students were suspended at least once during the year, according to the 2019 dashboard, an increase of about 1.4 percent from the year prior. Of Paso’s roughly 4,656 K-8 students (high school students aren’t included in the chronic absenteeism data), 11.6 percent were chronically absent from school last year. Only 3.4 percent of students statewide

were suspended at least once during the 2018-19 school year, and 10 percent of California’s K-8 students were considered to be chronically absent from school. The reasons kids miss school regularly vary, but Williams said students in the foster system, struggling with homelessness, bullying, or illnesses are commonly chronically absent. Suspensions are also included in the state’s chronic absenteeism rates, and Williams said the beginning of the vaping epidemic hit Paso’s schools hard. In an effort to get more students in class, Williams said Paso Joint Unified has been working with the SLO County Office of Education on improved attendance and disciplinary strategies, starting with a program called Attention2Attendance that the district launched the week of March 2. Attention2Attendance is a software program developed and maintained by School Innovations and Achievement, which analyzes attendance data and alerts administrators and parents of warning signs to allow for early intervention. School Innovations provides technical training to school employees and mails the required absentee notifications to parents and guardians. Williams recently heard about the software during an online truancy webinar, where administrators raved about the program and said that essentially every district in the state improving rates of absenteeism is using Attention2Attendance. The program is expected to cost the Paso district about $30,000 a year, according to Williams, and that could be problematic considering Paso’s recent short-term projections of significantly declining enrollment, which would likely lead to budget cuts. But California districts also get funding based on their average daily attendance, and Williams said that if Attention2Attendance does increase Paso’s average daily attendance rates, it could pay for itself. “That’s my hope,” Williams told New Times.

DATA FROM 2019 CALIFORNIA DASHBOARD

District, which had some of the lowest rates of suspension and chronic absenteeism in the county in 2018-19, just launched a districtwide, standardized approach to handling chronic absenteeism this fall, according to Chris Dowler, deputy director of student support services. Chronic absenteeism isn’t improving as much as he’d like to see, Dowler said, but intense cold and flu seasons are largely to blame for that. Administrators in the Lucia Mar Unified School District have been working to tackle its attendance issues for some time now, according to Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Hillery Dixon, who presented on the district’s performance in the 2019 California school dashboard at a board of education meeting on Jan. 21. At Lucia Mar, 3.6 percent of the district’s roughly 10,724 students were suspended at least once last school year, according to the dashboard data. About 8.1 percent of the 7,148 K-8 students were chronically absent. That puts Lucia Mar in a better spot than the state average. But, Dixon told New Times, “That is so much lost learning.” Like in Paso, vaping led to increased suspensions at a number of Lucia Mar’s schools last year. The district is working to combat that, Dixon said, through a restorative justice kind of approach to

behavioral issues on campus. There’s really no evidence to suggest that sending a student home on a suspension will change that student’s bad behavior, so Dixon said Lucia Mar is working to change the way it disciplines students by focusing more on counseling, peer mediation, restorative circles, and education. Through nationally used Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) programs, students are taught how to behave, just as they’re taught any other subject in the curriculum. “Those preventative approaches are starting to bear some good fruit,” Dixon told New Times. But it can be challenging to juggle those practices and school safety amid the increase in school shootings, and Dixon said that if a student is considered to be a threat to others, he or she will be suspended or even expelled. Lucia Mar is still analyzing its dashboard data and finding ways to improve its rates of chronic absenteeism, especially when it comes to students in the foster system. “The big thing is that all of our sites agree that keeping kids in school is the most important thing,” Dixon said.

hat if artificial intelligence could report the news, or at least help journalists report the news? Cal Poly Computer Science Professor Foaad Khosmood is investigating that very question as the lead researcher on a new project at the Cal Poly Institute for Advanced Technology and Public Policy to “develop an artificial intelligence system that will strengthen coverage of state and local governments,” according to a press release. Backed by a $200,000 grant from the Knight Foundation and help from partners at the University of Miami, Khosmood and fellow institute members are setting out to create an AI system that would in essence equip journalists with information about the activities of state legislatures. The hope, Khosmood told New Times, is that the tool could expand and improve state government coverage at local and regional media outlets—an area of journalism that has especially suffered amid the economic slide of the news industry. According to the Pew Research Center, less than a third of U.S. newspapers assign any reporters to statehouses. “The eyes have been taken off of statehouse reporting. Everybody is noticing this,” Khosmood said. “There is a tragic undercoverage.” Researchers describe the tool under construction as “a prototype news wire

service where narrative content covering state legislatures is automatically generated from primary data sources and can be distributed to local and regional news organizations for publication.” Combining algorithms and natural language processing, the project will leverage existing technologies to explore a new frontier. “This algorithmic writing isn’t new, but it’s never been done for politics; it’s never been done for government—that stuff is more nuanced,” Khosmood said. “This has been a barrier, and I feel we have the talent here at Cal Poly. We think we can do this.” It’s not the first time the Institute for Advanced Technology and Public Policy has worked to expand the public’s access to Sacramento. In 2015, the institute successfully developed Digital Democracy, a first-of-its-kind search engine that enabled reporters and the public to find full transcripts of legislative hearings and proceedings, which the tool generated, and even filter through them by a specific speaker or issue. This project is a next step, with a hope of delivering to journalists even more useful and curated information. “The intent is to help local news organizations by augmenting their staff,” said Lindsay Grace, the University of Miami School of Communication’s Knight Chair of Interactive Media and the colead researcher on the project. “The

It’s time to change the world D uring the fight for suffrage in the United States at the turn of the 20th century, Susan B. Anthony proclaimed that “organize, agitate, educate, must be our war cry!” The same mantra continues to ring true nearly a century later as the struggle for women’s equality carries on. The month of March is Women’s History Month, and Monday, March 9, is International Women’s Day. This offers us the opportunity to acknowledge how far women have come in the fight for equality and how far we still have to go. Two decades into the 21st century, our state and country still face an uphill battle in confronting and resolving the legacy of systemic barriers and

injustices that women face each and every day. Whether it be overt attacks on fundamental rights like access to reproductive health care, or the lessvisible, yet ubiquitous, gender pay gap, California and the nation must do better. On average, women in the American workforce make only 81 percent of what their male equivalents earn in annual salary, and those statistics are even more disparate for women of color. Only 6 percent of CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are women and, in 2018, nearly a quarter of public companies in California had no women on their board of directors. Statistics like these, and the disproportionate number of women elected to office in California, are prime

examples of the types of barriers and inequities we must continue to confront and change. While the Legislature continues its work to pursue comprehensive new protections against workplace harassment and retaliation; expand child care funding and paid family leave; and ban discriminatory gender-based pricing, the most effective advocacy and activism on women’s equality issues can, and should, take place right in our own neighborhoods and communities. One of my mentors and personal heroes, Dolores Huerta, blazed trails as a leader and advocate in the labor movement and once said that “every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a

potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world.” In that spirit, I encourage Californians who want a better future for all of us to recognize that now is the time to elevate these issues and engage with our families, neighbors, and elected officials to all become allies and activists in pursuing equality for women in California, in our nation, and around the world.

The government needs to do more for small organic farms

consideration of loans needed to jumpstart their land purchases or rent. In order to truly help the small organic farms, there should be a call to action not only for the consumers but for the politicians as well in order to continue the 35 percent growth rate of organic farms, as reported by Giuffre. The “think globally, act locally” mentality only works so far to engage people in making conscious decisions about their food, but ultimately, the government must implement and reinforce a system which gives small organic farms a fighting chance in the monopolized industrial agriculture market without the fear of getting stuck in the cost-price squeeze.

Trump’s response to coronavirus is propaganda

most part, on a vibrant economy. Trump’s disinformation campaign included lies and cover-ups. On Feb. 28, he claimed that only 15 Americans have contracted coronavirus, while the CDC placed that number at 64 and increasing. The president attempted to convince the American people that the country was not in peril. Trump went further. He told his supporters in South Carolina that the coronavirus was a “a new hoax” that was propagated by the Democratic Party. Trump’s propaganda tactics have failed.

The president lacks normal human feelings such as empathy or concern for others. His response to this threat has been focused primarily on propaganda. Trump’s goal has been to create the illusion that the virus is under control. He has not taken the necessary administrative steps to control or terminate the virus.

Donating to a shady PAC is unAmerican

Al Fonzi has written yet another pointless screed excoriating Ellen Beraud’s “no” vote on an ugly statue (“Beraud’s vote,” Feb. 27), but has yet to address his monetary support of the shady PAC supporting Debbie Arnold. The PAC’s vicious and misleading hit-piece mailers sent to district voters represent the dirtiest, sneakiest sort of politics, something I’d expect to see in a contested Senate race, not an election for district supervisor. Supporting these mudslinging smear campaigns in our local SLO County elections is cowardly, contemptible, and unAmerican. Giving money to shady PACs shows a profound disrespect for democracy itself and the freedoms our brave men and women in uniform fought and died for, especially when Al hides his refusal to address his donation behind a love letter to veterans.

Hopefully your readers didn’t miss that his column first offers a wholesale concession of Eaton’s point that Beraud’s vote was design-related, and second, it does nothing to defend Eaton’s evidence that Fonzi is coordinating with a PAC that desperately misrepresents Beraud’s motives. Here I quote Al Fonzi: “Councilwoman Ellen Beraud pulled item No. 6, ‘approval of the Veterans Memorial.’ She attempted to revisit the design ... .” The shady PAC, to which Fonzi donated $250, is not claiming Ms. Beraud has a terrible sense of aesthetics; it claims she doesn’t respect our veterans. However, Mr. Fonzi himself concedes that her vote was over design. I suspect that anyone who has seen our veterans memorial understands that a reasonable case can be made that it

is quite visually unpleasant and that our veterans deserve better. Rather than own up to his PAC contributions, Mr. Fonzi engages in what he might call, “an obfuscation of facts,” by directing our attention toward fallacious appeals to emotion; non sequiturs; and outright conjecture about dead soldiers, Jacques Cousteau’s art collection, and political motives of which Mr. Fonzi can have no actual knowledge.

Why I voted for Bernie Sanders!

I have waited my whole life for someone like Bernie Sanders to run for president. A good person who has spent his life fighting for justice. Economic justice. Racial justice. Educational justice. Environmental justice. Bernie speaks clearly to me on all our major issues. Healthcare is a human right; Medicare for all is our best response. As an educator, I agree with Bernie that public colleges and universities should be tuition-free for those who earn admission. He is right to fight for a $15 minimum wage, a living wage. Having taught in prisons, I know Bernie is right to want to reform a racially unfair prison system. Living with good people who have immigrated to America, I know Bernie is right when he calls for immigration reform.

Bernie has pledged to find just solutions for all of our current challenges, not by himself, but with our help. He says “Not me, us!“ because he knows that it will take all of us, working together, to fix an unjust system. Wealth inequality threatens our peace in America. Cesar Chavez said, “If you want peace, work for justice.” That includes environmental justice. Bernie tells us that we must wean ourselves from fossil fuels and innovate around renewable energy if we hope to save the planet for our children and grandchildren. In our hearts we know this is true. Corporations, corporate media, and the elites of the Democratic Party are all spending tens of millions to defeat Bernie because he is ready to even the playing field for us all. They know that more for us means less for them. That’s why the media claim that Bernie‘s big plans are all impossible. Nelson Mandela said, “Everything is impossible until it happens.” Bernie has opened so many minds in America to show us what is possible. He has inspired millions of young people to dream of and work for a better future. Monied interests are afraid that Bernie will change the status quo and share their pie with the 99 percent we are all a part of. Bernie is not afraid. He has been fighting all his life, speaking truth to power. If you listen to just one of his speeches you cannot help but be moved by his passion.

Honest study of Highway 227 traffic needed

For the last few years, traffic on Highway 227 from Price Canyon north has gotten steadily worse. A recent plan to install three or four roundabouts on 227 was recently and overwhelmingly shot down by the public. Data used to determine that roundabouts costing more than $7.2 million each were the only solution was found to be outdated. The example study roundabout on Highway 154 was determined to be nothing like what would be on 227. A new roundabout study costing hundreds of thousands of dollars is underway to deal with the problem. But here is the rub. It is being conducted by the same company that did the last study. Does anyone seriously expect a different plan?

This should not be a roundabout study, it should be a traffic flow study. By calling it a roundabout study, it is saying that no other solution will be considered, and we’ll end up with the same flawed result as the last study. The traffic problem is only on weekday mornings for about 90 minutes and only northbound, and only on weekday afternoons for about 90 minutes southbound. Southbound traffic in the mornings flows freely, as does northbound traffic in the afternoons. Roundabouts will block north and southbound traffic at three or four locations 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The real solution is widening Highway 101. However, installation of an additional traffic light on Highway 227 and retiming all of the lights along with widening 227 for a three-quarter-mile section will correct much of the delay. We need an honest study, one that is not driven by the flawed concept that roundabouts solve all traffic issues. Joseph Rouleau San Luis Obispo

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

Trumping pumping W hen last I discussed bad ideas for solving California’s water problems in this space (“Don’t go in the tunnel,” Dec. 12), we covered everything wrong with the Delta Tunnel proposal and why SLO County’s supervisors should not pony up $2.5 million to be a part of it. On Feb. 19, Donald Trump came to Bakersfield to flourish an even worse idea, via a Presidential Memorandum on Developing and Delivering More Water Supplies in California (Essentially: diverting more rivers and building a bunch of dams). Last year, Trump’s Department of the Interior executed an about-face on previous biological opinions wherein federal scientists had determined that diverting more water would harm fish and wildlife. These have been replaced by opinions more to the president’s liking. The new opinions, as noted by The Hill, represent “a shift that Interior Secretary David Bernhardt had previously called for when he … lobbied on behalf of a farming group based in California to roll back protections on the delta smelt. Bernhardt is currently under federal investigation over several ethics concerns including complaints that he continued to push the efforts of his former employer, Westlands Water District, to advance policy at the

Interior Department.” “California won’t allow the Trump administration to destroy and deplete our natural resources,” state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement issued in response to the new opinions. “We’re prepared to challenge the Trump administration’s harmful attack on our state’s critical ecosystems and environment.” “We appreciate that the Newsom administration is going to challenge the Trump administration’s ridiculously dishonest biological opinion,” said Kathryn Phillips, director of Sierra Club California. “That opinion is nothing more than an extinction plan. Bernhardt and Trump created that extinction plan by transferring honest scientists off the job. Suing the Trump administration is the right thing to do.” And while much of what Trump said at the Bakersfield signing ceremony was right in line with the trademark realityfree howling at the moon beloved by his fans (“It would be different if you had a drought. You don’t have a drought. You have tremendous amounts of water,” he said, the day after the Sierra snowpack clocked in at 53 percent of normal.). He also pointed to “decades of failure and delays in ensuring critical water access for the people of this state.”

His proposed solution is all wet, but he wasn’t wrong. From the peripheral canal to the delta tunnels, state administrations have been determined to move forward with massive projects that would divert water from the Bay Delta, devastate fish and wildlife, and deliver a very low likelihood of improving water availability and security for Californians. When the SLO County Board of Supervisors convened on Feb. 4 to start pondering its role in the proposed Delta Conveyance Project, the Sierra Club was there to remind them that diverting twothirds of the fresh water flowing into the Bay Delta from the Sacramento River would mean the likely collapse of one of California’s major ecosystems. And for those supervisors who don’t care much about ecosystems but do care about money, we noted that while the exact cost of the delta tunnel is unknown, proponents have said it would cost at least $11 billion, and most independent analysts anticipate it would cost much more when overruns and interest are factored in. We said that the $2.5 million that would be charged to the local district and contractors as their share of project design and review costs if the county signs off on the deal would be much better spent on local projects that capture runoff and use it to recharge groundwater basins, encouraging

water-efficient technologies such as weather-based irrigation controllers and drip irrigation, and recycling municipal wastewater—all of which could save more than 2.3 million acre-feet of water annually statewide, according to the Department of Water Resources. Conservative voices from north of the grade joined us to point out the State Water Project’s sketchy history of delivery and to wonder loudly why residents in parts of the county not served by the project are required to pay for water they aren’t going to get. The county administrator then focused like a laser beam on the $2.5 million, in a brief exchange with Public Works staff who had been vague on that point. After all testimony was heard, board chair John Peschong observed, “When you get a unique group of people who pretty much are united from different sides, I think we’ve got some work to do in the community to understand it … . I want to take a look and kind of really kick the tires on this one because of the opposition that I’ve heard today.” Which means our supervisors and you, dear reader, still have time to download The Smart Alternative to Tunnel(s): A Sensible Water Management Portfolio at sierraclub.org/california/water.

Opinion

The Shredder

P-stained

M

ystery solved, everybody! It was just savior of the common citizen Kevin P. Rice, an überconservative goddamn American hero, who used satire (and racism, sexism, and bigotry) to raise awareness of the evils of racism, sexism, bigotry, and bullying … by … wait for it … being a bully himself! Ta-da! For his next trick, Rice will contort logic into a twisted pretzel of projection and gaslighting! Frankly, in all my conjecture about who the mad robocaller was last week, I can’t believe I didn’t guess it was Ricea-chonies. Maybe I didn’t think of the former local gadfly “Pee”-Rice because he doesn’t live here anymore. But thank god the Kern County resident still cares enough about SLO County to help us from afar by interfering in our election by placing those pathetic robocalls with the Southern-accented Ku Klux Klanendorsed woman encouraging everyone to re-elect 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill, who—according to the call— would save SLO County from “lesbian,” “homosexual,” “sum-bitch perverts,” and keep SLO “straight again.” Thankfully, Kev has Rice-splained how stupid we were for thinking Hill, his opponent Stacy Korsgaden, and their various supporters were actually upset. Obviously Rice was only using humor to raise awareness of a serious issue, right? “Isn’t it time the attacks on women, gays, and others, coming from an elected official, end?” Rice wrote in an emailed press release. “It is a sad day when Progressives who purport to stand with women and the LGBTQ+ community support a bigoted, homophobic bully. “It’s time you speak up,” Rice continued. “Everyone. If you have been bullied, intimidated, or threatened, you have a duty to your community to speak out. Do it now. Stand up. #MeTooSLO.” Let me translate: “Even though Korsgaden was the candidate slinging mud in the race, let’s pretend Hill is an avowed homophobe so I can attack him. Also, it’s perfectly OK for me to use racist, homophobic clichés to smear Hill even though he never mentioned Korsgaden’s sexual orientation. #NotMeSLO.” Sorry, Pea-brain Rice, but your attempt to rationalize your sick and twisted robocalls isn’t working, and your apology—“I apologize to anyone who misunderstood my message or took offense. Most people understood it, while some twisted it for political ends”—is utter bullshit. We didn’t “misunderstand” it, and you can’t “twist” out of culpability for its reprehensibly slanderous message. Here’s an idea! Stay in Kern County and out of our politics. #MeTooSLO:ExceptKevinP. Rice:He’sNotWelcome. Worse still, did those robocalls work? It’s too early to tell the winner, but, as I write this, Korsgaden is currently leading Hill 51 percent to 49 percent! Of course, that could change. Korsgaden ran as a Republican, and they love to

vote early by mail, while Democrats like to show up at the polls. The count continues! I will say this: If Korsgaden wins, 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson is going to be mighty lonely at Board of Supervisors’ meetings as the sole liberal voice. If you’re thinking, “Hey, maybe challenger Ellen Beraud will unseat 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold or opponent Stephanie Shakofsky will best 1st District Supervisor John Peschong,” well, ha ha ha! The joke’s on you. Hey, Santa Margarita! Maybe you’ll get that unwanted rock quarry shoved down your throats after all! Hey, all you hippy pot farmers! Prepare for your legal work to get a whole lot harder to do! The good news is if the Republicans take over, we won’t have to pay those pesky taxes anymore because they don’t think they should have to pay for services like, you know, firefighters and stuff. We’ll all live in their “tax is theft” utopia. You see, it’s not looking good for Measure A-20, the Oceano Emergency/ Fire Services Special Tax that requires two-thirds of votes to pass. As I write this, it has 63 percent “yes” votes, which is 3 percent below the needed 66.6 satanic percent needed to pass. No worries, Oceano! I’m sure someone will show up eventually to put out your fires. Maybe you and your fellow citizens can start a bucket brigade! Also, children, please get used to your asbestos- and lead-paint-laden schools because it’s not looking good for Proposition 13, the unfortunately named school bond designed to upgrade schools in California. Just settle into your poorly ventilated prefab “temporary” classrooms. Just keep covering their interior walls with construction paper anti-bullying posters. We wouldn’t want you to grow up to be like Kevin P. Rice: self-important and clueless. And SLO Town housing fans, despite the protestations of the newly formed citizen group San Luis Architectural Preservation, you’re still getting new housing downtown. Yay! Despite their arguments that a new four-story stucco and faux-brick development in between Higuera and Marsh streets doesn’t fit in with nearby historic houses like The Jack House and Gardens, The Pollard House, and The Norcross House, you’ll still be able to rent one of the 39 market-rate apartments. What is “market-rate” these days? I’m guessing $2K for a one-bedroom and $3K for a two-bedroom. Keep building, SLO! The market’s far from saturated. If you need me, I’ll be in my cardboard box under the overpass. Δ The Shredder put the bully into BS. Send ideas and comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

Nature inspired Jamestown Revival’s new album celebrates the lonesome landscape

amestown Revival’s new album San Isabel is just as sparse, breathtaking, and starkly beautiful as the place it was recorded—a remote cabin in central Colorado with a mountainous view of the San Isabel National Forest. “We were out there probably 17 days. Everything just slows down,” cofrontman Zach Chance explained in press materials. “We’d go into town to get food in the evenings, just to break it up, but most days when we were recording we would have the doors and the windows open, and the breeze going through it. It’s a small cabin so it’s cozy.” “It’s got so much character. You walk into this place and it gives you a really cool feeling,” co-frontman Jonathan Clay added. “The spirit of that mountain range is all over this record.” There’s something calm and contemplative about the 11 new minimalist songs. “When we sat down to write this record, we asked ourselves, ‘What kind of record do we want to write?’” Clay recalled. “The first thing that came up in that conversation was, ‘Well, why did we even start Jamestown Revival in the first place?’ It was because we enjoyed singing harmonies so much. So we decided to write a record built around that. That’s what we started doing this for. It’s really as simple as that. To us, harmonies are the third man. It’s what makes a song feel complete.” Clay mostly sings lead with Chance on the high harmony, which adds to the songs’ lonesome quality. Every once in

a while, however, Clay’s baritone slips under Chance’s tenor lead. “It’s not about who’s singing the loudest or who’s getting the voice with the most recognition. It’s about blending these voices together so it makes the most impact,” Chance said. “I grew up playing basketball and baseball, and in my mind, harmony is a team sport and it’s a sum of all the parts.” For the recording, they enlisted a coproducer—Jamie Mefford (Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov). Their new songs found inspiration in ’60s and early-’70s folk and pop, and they noted early John Denver and Bob Dylan; Simon & Garfunkel; and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young as influences. “This record is different than our previous two and it definitely has more of an ethereal thing,” Chance said. “The heads and tails of the songs are longer, so it really is creating a trance. We love records that you can drive to, and hopefully this is one that you can take a road trip to. Jamie really helped bring that out. We would record and get the essentials, whether it be an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar. Then we would add what we started calling ‘celestial seasonings,’ where we would do these tracks with an ethereal vibe, which became an undercurrent throughout the record.” One thing’s for certain: This pair, who’ve been close since they met at 15, write great songs together. “People say they can see it and they can feel it,” Clay said. “I mean, we’ve been friends forever, it feels like. It’s a brotherhood. We don’t always like each other but we love each other, you know? We truly enjoy being able to do what we do, to make music and travel together.” Numbskull and Good Medicine

Local teen artists participate in Youth Art After Dark to highlight healthy relationships and bring awareness to youth dating violence

P

repare to have your socks knocked off as local youth display their artwork through Art After Dark to bring attention to healthy teen relationships. The Sock Drawer, where the exhibit will take place on March 6, gives adolescents ages 21 and younger a platform and a community voice through paintings, drawings, and photography. The event is a collaboration between RISE’s volunteer group, Close to Home; Stand Strong; and local youth from San Luis Obispo High School, Cuesta College, and GALA. “My hope is that all who attend our opening take away some part of the experiences of these young people and help to fight and speak out against violence and sexual assault in their own lives,” said Lisa Osburn, a local artist and The Sock Drawer employee. Osburn, who is largely responsible for getting the business involved with Art After Dark, said Friday’s art show will mark the sixth time the downtown business has hosted an Art After Dark event. This particular show, made up of art created entirely by young community members, stands out for her. “I think the gravity of this type of work and imagery is very important to expose the community to. One of the best ways to try to work on trauma you’ve experienced in life is through expressing those thoughts and feelings through art,” she explained. RISE Education Program Coordinator Arti Kothari Allard organized the youth event and worked closely with Advanced Digital Photography teachers Zach Roper and Jason Heimerdinger at SLO High School to gather submissions for the exhibit. Roper explained that the project was an excellent opportunity for students because it’s a topic that affects them either directly or indirectly through their peers. Close to Home is a community mobilization project dedicated to making SLO a healthier, happier, more equitable place. The group consists of roughly 20 volunteers, aged 15 to 65, who are passionate about ending sexual assault and dating violence, according to Allard, who sees a huge need for youth voice. “When people talk about domestic violence or sexual assault, many people think of adults, not teenagers,” she said. Statistics from loveisrespect.org show that teen dating violence is widespread in the U.S. Teen dating violence is a type of intimate partner violence—whether physical, sexual (including unwanted sexting), psychological aggression, or stalking—that occurs between people in a close relationship. Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. Additional statistics show that 1 in 10 high school students have been purposefully hit, slapped, or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend. One in three adolescents in the U.S. are

here’s a new gallery in town. The Cambria Gallery of Art, situated off of Main Street in Cambria, celebrated its first show on Feb. 15. It’s located inside a historic space, in what was once a Hearst Ranch schoolhouse, gallery owner Roger Cantrell said. Centered on a motto of “spirited Central Coast art in a country schoolhouse setting,” Cantrell plans to put out a new group exhibit in his gallery for each season, with the current Winter Show up through the end of March. Cantrell first found himself interacting with the art industry through his own work as a photographer. Focusing on automobile photography, Cantrell’s images give a fresh perspective to cars by taking his pictures from behind the wheel, allowing the viewer to “drive into the scene from that car.” Cantrell’s photos are on permanent display in a nook of Cambria Gallery of Art. Originally a Southern California resident, Cantrell’s love for photographic art led to a passion for representing artists, and he soon found himself running a gallery in Laguna Beach with the help of Virga Siauciunaite, a fellow artist who Cantrell said taught him the ins and outs of owning a gallery. After moving to the Central Coast in September 2018, Cantrell saw a promising opportunity to do something similar in Cambria. To honor the art and mentorship of Siauciunaite, Cantrell decided to give a few of her pieces a permanent spot in his gallery. Her work, along with paintings from Ilona Peteris and Nancy Roberts, make up the permanent exhibit tucked into another corner. Cambria Gallery of Art is remarkable

FEATURED Kurt Waldo, a featured artist in Cambria Gallery of Art’s Winter Show, sits in front of a few of his pieces he calls “abstract expressionism.”

New gallery

The Cambria Gallery of Art, recently opened by Roger Cantrell, is located at 1561 Main St., Cambria, open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A Winter Show is on display through the end of March.

in its ability to fit a variety of paintings and artists into a small space. In addition to his own photography and the three permanent artists, Cantrell’s Winter Show features the work of local painters Donald Archer, Jordan Quintero, and Kurt Waldo. But even with seven artists’ works in the cozy, historic building, the space maintains a flow that feels balanced and purposeful. One artist’s work plays off the next, and the result is something effortlessly cohesive, despite the exhibit having no explicit theme. “I like people to just look at art and understand it at their own level, rather than try to fit into some sort of explanation or title,” Cantrell said of what he’s curated. Waldo, one of the artists in the Winter Show, has a similar approach to his own art. “Most of my titles are dates because I don’t want to tell the people what I see in it,” Waldo said of his abstract expressionist paintings. In general, Waldo said his work is influenced by landscapes, or as he puts it, “a frozen moment.” His landscape-inspired paintings fit well into the group show, as Archer’s and Quintero’s pieces also tend to depict natural environments. Many of them are locally inspired by the ocean or hill scenes. Archer metaphorically compares his abstract landscapes—colorful oil paintings with a vaguely graphic quality about them—to “a contrail about an airplane.” “What you’re seeing is just this pentimento or a cloud of where I’ve been and where I’m going,” Archer said. “I consider what I do as a product of how I’m living.” Quintero, the final artist represented in the Winter Show, provides a balance between Waldo’s and Archer’s bright colors, with his earthier tones. He uses unique wooden canvases to bring a natural element to his work, along with opting for a more neutral color palette. But because he also works with landscapes, Quintero’s pieces fit in with the other featured artists, giving an overall unity to the show. For Cantrell, the new space is all about giving more opportunities to local artists. “I don’t need that much space,” Cantrell said of the gallery. “I love giving a showcase to these deserving artists.” Δ Arts Writer Malea Martin is always rooting for local artists.

Split Screen PHOTOS COURTESY OF BLUMHOUSE PRODUCTIONS

Blind justice W riter-director Leigh Whannell (Insidious 3, Upgrade) helms this new iteration of the H.G. Wells 1897 horror novel about a brilliant but disturbed scientist who develops a technique to render himself invisible. In Whannell’s version, the brilliant scientist is Adrian Griffin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), abusive partner to Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss). Cecilia—with the help of her sister, Alice (Harriet Dyer); their childhood friend, James Lanier (Aldis Hodge); and his teenage daughter, Sydney (Storm Reid)— escapes Adrian in the dead of night. Later, Adrian purportedly commits suicide and leaves Cecilia some of his fortune, but she begins to suspect his death was a hoax as strange events happen and lethal accidents befall those she loves most. Is she going insane, or is she being tormented by an invisible entity? (124 min.)

when Adrian’s breath appears on a cold night, when she dumps paint on him, and when he’s thrashing her and she moves in impossible ways around a room. Much of the film’s success rests on a terrific performance by Moss. This is an effective thriller and a lot of fun, especially when Cecilia begins to turn the tables on her tormentor. Anna This is a real “got or be gotten” approach to the story, and Adrian’s cruelty and calculated plan is nothing short of ingeniously evil. Their dramatic, cold, undeniably beautiful home overlooks a turbulent rocky shoreline and is guarded by gates, cameras, and their Doberman Pinscher, Zeus. It’s clear that Cecilia’s plan has been brewing for a while. How to escape the man who refuses to be bested and is a cardcarrying genius is no easy task. She’s worked through every what-if, hidden her go bag and necessities safely away, and planned her escape down to the second. Why can’t it all go perfectly after that? Admittedly, that would not make for the psychological thriller this story turns out to be. Adrian wakes as she runs to her freedom, and while she makes it out, it isn’t without him discovering who

Glen One hundred and twenty-three years after H.G. Wells conceived of The Invisible Man, and 87 years after director James Whale first brought the story to the silver screen, the idea remains fresh thanks to Whannell’s thoughtful adaptation of the story that weaves in #MeToo-style abuse, the ultimate form of gaslighting, and female empowerment. The film opens with a taut sequence of Cecilia slipping out of Adrian’s modernist, vault-like Stinson Beach house. She clearly fears for her life, and it doesn’t take long to find out why: Adrian is a control freak of the first order. He’s so cruel and calculating—and so personally aggrieved by Cecilia’s departure— that he’d rather torture her than merely kill her. Adrian enlists his attorney brother, Tom (Michael Dorman), to administer his will, which leaves Cecilia $5 million, provided she’s sane and commits no crimes, but when you have a malevolent, invisible stalker tormenting you, even a perfectly sane person can seem really, really crazy. Even her sister and her friend James begin to wonder what’s going on, since everyone knows there’s no such thing as invisibility. There’s a lot of tense moments as Cecilia senses Adrian’s presence but can’t BELIEVE OR DIE Detective James Lanier (Aldis locate him. The special effects Hodge) finally realizes his childhood friend Cecilia are quite good here—for instance, really is being tormented by an invisible entity.

she’s with and doing some damage as she flees. Even in the home of James—a 6-foot-tall slab-of-muscle cop—she can barely step out of the house. Every sound, every person is instant panic. She knows in that deep-down way that Adrian will come for her, even with everyone around her promising to keep her safe. When the invisible source starts its torment, convincing everyone that she hasn’t gone over the edge is impossible. She looks and sounds totally bonkers, and soon Adrian’s vindictive plot turns from dark to downright devilish. Moss is great here—both her fear and conviction are palpable. It’s eerie and uneasy, definitely a tension-filled ride with plenty of twists I just didn’t see coming. Glen Have you ever had the unsettling sensation that you’re being watched? Imagine living with that 24/7! Cecilia is an emotional wreck, a thin wire stretched to its breaking point. Alice and James want to believe her, but she comes off as irrationally paranoid, and soon she finds herself hospitalized. Of course Adrian’s psychological torture can only go on for so long, and as Cecilia continues to resist, he’s forced to go beyond making her look crazy and instead making her look criminal. Imagine the frustration of knowing you’re being plagued by an evil genius but no one will believe you. Moss is terrific at playing desperate, but she’s also great at playing determined. If you’re a fan of I Spit on Your Grave (1978), as I am, you’ll savor the satisfaction as

Cecilia navigates Adrian’s ingenious manipulations and gaslighting, slowly but assuredly setting up a conclusion that will satisfy your bloodlust for Adrian getting what he so richly deserves. He thinks he’s smarter than everyone, but once Cecilia finds her inner strength, Adrian discovers he didn’t think of everything, and even geniuses can be outsmarted. Anna It’s very much a boogieman feel as Cecilia tries to navigate the sinking suspicion that she isn’t alone. Spooky things slowly start to take over her life— from blankets that seem to be stood on by some unseen force to emails from her account ruining her relationship with someone close to her. When you blame the dead for what looks like your behavior and frantically explain how they must be alive and invisible, chances are that even your biggest supporters are going to think you’ve finally broken after years of abuse. Cecilia knows she isn’t out of her mind and will do whatever she can to vindicate herself. The idea of an invisible monster is terrifying. You never know where they are, if the are coming for you, or worse yet, coming for someone you love. They can ruin your life right in front of you and you can’t even see it coming. This was a solid thriller, and in the end, Cecilia’s brand of justice is satisfying and badass. Δ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and freelancer Anna Starkey.

Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon, The Croods) directs screenwriter Michael Green’s adaptation of Jack London’s classic novel about Buck, a St. Bernard and Scotch shepherd mix that’s stolen and sent north to Canada’s Klondike during the gold rush, where he’s forced to become a sled dog. After many adventures and terrible masters, Buck eventually teams up with John Thornton (Harrison Ford), to whom he develops a fierce loyalty. I loved this book as a kid. Buck’s adventure is grand and teaches important lessons of fairness and bravery but also about the cold reality of the natural world, dog pack (and human) pecking order, and the ethical treatment of animals. It’s all here in this new attempt to bring London’s 1903 dog’s-eye-view novel to life in film, first attempted in the 1923 silent film of the same name, and attempted again in 1935, 1972, 1976, 1996, and 2009. If you can get past the jarring CGI of this new version, with its oddly anthropomorphized dog facial expressions and less-than-realistic looking animals, the core of what makes the story compelling is still there. This is a story and film squarely aimed at the 8- to 12-year-old crowd, who I’m guessing won’t be bothered by the CGI or anthropomorphization in the least. They’ll love Buck’s humanlike personality writ across his lovable face, not to mention his clumsy shenanigans. He’s a dog with a mind of his own. If you’re not familiar with the story, some—but not all—of the book’s elements are here: his dognapping, harsh treatment, series of masters, and eventual relationship with Thornton, who in the film version is a man hiding in the Klondike from of the tragic memory of his son’s death and resulting failed marriage. The character of Hal (Dan Stevens), a greenhorn prospector who badly mistreats Buck and his other sled dogs, gets expanded into a revenge side plot.

The book is still superior to any of the film versions I’ve seen, including this one, but it’s a very engrossing family film with an effective performance from Ford. Witnessing how Buck’s various owners treat him is the story’s most important lesson. Judge Miller (Bradley Whitford) is disappointed by Buck’s unruly behavior but never resorts to punishment worse than making Buck sleep outside. When he’s taken north to be sold into servitude, he’s taught to obey with the end of a club. Thankfully, mail carrier Perrault buys him and decides to give Buck a chance at learning to pull a sled, despite his partner Françoise’s (Cara Gee) lack of faith in the lumbering dog. When Buck gets distracted by a rabbit and pulls the team off the trail and down a slope, Perrault exhibits patience and trust. Buck turns out to be worth the trouble and soon earns Françoise’s trust and respect as well. How Hal ends up with the team doesn’t quite line up with the book version, but Thornton’s intervention on Buck’s behalf leads Buck to become his dog. Unlike Buck’s previous “masters,” Thornton isn’t interested in having the dog do his bidding. Buck can come and go; Thornton just tells him to be home by dark. The book’s title comes from Buck’s increasing interaction with a local timber wolf pack, and how he’s called back to his ancestral behaviors, but not before proving himself a faithful companion to Thornton. As I noted, the film strays a bit from the book’s storyline and compresses a lot of the book’s action to fit the 100-minute runtime, but this is still a wonderful family film and absolutely worth a trip to the theater, especially if you’re a dog lover— even when they’re constructed solely of ones and zeroes.

THE LODGE

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz (Goodnight Mommy) co-direct this horror thriller about Grace (Riley Keough), a woman snowed in at a remote lodge with her fiancé’s two children—Aidan (Jaeden Martell) and Mia (Lia McHugh). As the at-first-uncomfortable trio finally begin to connect, weird stuff threatens to conjure psychological demons from Grace’s religious upbringing. The filmmakers are throwing a lot of been-there-done-that ideas on the wall. There are the interior house miniatures of Hereditary (2018) and their accompanying feelings of being trapped in a box and being toyed with; some found footage—à la The Blair Witch Project (1999) or Paranormal Activity (2007)—from Grace’s time in a cult; there’s the snowy, isolated location of The Shining (1980); and there’s Grace herself, a fragile woman who’s been through a lot: She’s the only survivor of

Pick

a 39-person mass suicide of the cult her father led. The set-up to Grace and the kids’ time in the titular lodge is that the kids’ father, Richard (Richard Armitage), is an investigative writer who met Grace when he was writing a book about said cult. He fell in love with her and left his wife, Laura (Alicia Silverstone), much to the anger of his children. I don’t want to spoil the plot for you, but Aidan and Mia blame Grace for breaking up their parents’ marriage and the subsequent fallout of the dissolution of their relationship. Richard wants his kids to get to know Grace, so he leaves the three of them alone at the family’s lakeside cabin and heads back to the city for work. Great plan, right?!? Not long after he’s gone, things get weird. It doesn’t help that Laura was a devout Catholic and had filled the cabin with religious iconography, which triggers Grace and reminds her of the dogmatic teachings of her father’s cult. Thanks to a serious snowstorm, soon the trio is cut off from civilization, and when the generator stops working, the water stops running, and their food, clothing, and most importantly Grace’s medication go missing, they begin to suspect something occult is at work. Are they even alive, or is this purgatory? Despite the many derivative elements, the film works effectively as a psychological thriller. Atmospheric music and sound effects, the aforementioned miniature interiors, the drab and desolate wintery location—it all combines into a moody thriller with a disturbing twist awaiting viewers. If you like mysteries, it’s a fun one, and Riley Keough turns in a nuanced and committed performance. It’s not quite as good as Hereditary or last year’s two standouts, Midsommar and Us, but it sure beats most of the films passing themselves off as horror these days. (108 min.) —Glen

Ends Thursday, March 3: Galaxy, The Palm Benedict Andrews (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Una) directs Kristen Stewart as Jean Seberg in a film inspired by true events, which details the actress’s ultimate mental collapse after the FBI underhandedly threatens her for her involvement with the civil rights movement in the 1960s. While the story is an important one to tell, it’s severely flawed, and Stewart’s portrayal lacks any real substance—which everyone already knew was going to happen because she’s a deadpan actress. Seberg was a French-adopted American actress who gained her international fame by starring in Jean-Luc Godard’s 1960 film Breathless. In the hopes of making it big in Hollywood, Jean leaves her husband and child in France and travels to Los Angeles for an audition. On the airplane, she meets Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie), a civil rights activist, and decides to take a stand. With her fist raised high, she poses with Black Panther members for photos. Soon thereafter she decides to donate to the Black Panther education initiatives for the first time—which is historically false because the actress had contributed to the civil rights movement since she was a teenager—and begins an affair with Jamal. The affair and her involvement with the movement was enough

veryone loves true crime. Just admit it, you love it. Or at least you don’t hate it. Sure, it can be gruesome and voyeuristic, but deep down I think everyone loves a good mystery that needs solving. In Don’t F**k With Cats, you get to watch average people just like you and me get the unusual opportunity to crack a murder case, which itself is unusual in all sorts of other ways too. Within three hour-long episodes, a Netflix documentary crew follows a group of concerned citizens who connect on Facebook after watching a disturbing viral video online. In the video, which was posted online in 2010, an anonymous creepo murders kittens (real, tiny, adorable kittens!) by suffocating them in a vacuum sealer. It’s repugnant, and it lights a raging fire of passion for justice—or maybe vengeance— in the bellies of several innocent internet onlookers, who form a Facebook group dedicated solely to finding and apprehending the video’s creator. The group gains a huge following (thankfully, there are a lot of people out there who find animal abuse abhorrent) and eventually even attracts the attention of an apparently popular reality TV show about a group of bikers who find and beat up animal abusers. Niche, right? But behind all the media and social media chaos are two web nerds who truly want to find this guy, and they have the skills to do it. As these two get closer to finding the cat killer, more horrific videos begin to surface.

reason for the FBI to start aggressively watching her every move. Part of the crew tapping into her phone calls and putting the tiniest microphones on obscure items in her home is Jack Solomon (Jack O’Connell), a new FBI recruit who specializes in sound technology. Solomon is at first completely on board with the surveillance, calling Jean a sympathizer for the Panthers, but soon he becomes appalled by the organization’s aggressive tactics to silence Jean. The lies created by the organization and fed to gossip magazines, and the recordings of her personal life played back to Jean over the phone, lead to her paranoia and attempted suicide. Seberg is part of a new wave of biopics and films loosely based on real moments in time, such as Judy and My Week with Marilyn, that seem to solely focus on external factors that broke down these talented individuals. Andrews does things a little differently with Seberg by bringing in FBI agent Solomon, a fictional character, who starts to have remorse for mercilessly tapping into Jean’s life. I’m a little confused as to why we needed this fictitious character who was assisting in ruining a character’s life—a character based on a real person. Why leave room for any kind of sympathy for a man in the FBI’s COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) that conducted illegal projects of surveillance and the discrediting of others. How was his remorse in any way equivalent to Jean’s mental breakdown? There are plenty of throwaway characters in the film like Solomon and Jamal’s wives whose only purpose in the film is to be jealous of their husband’s fixation on Jean. Not to mention a scene where Solomon’s partner Carl (Vince Vaughn) asserts his macho dominance on his wife and daughter after they don’t do exactly what he says when he says it. (103 min.) —Karen

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG In one, the killer drowns more kittens in a bathtub. Then in another, he murders a human being. Things only escalate from there—threats are made directly to the online investigators; body parts are mailed to Canadian politicians—and the Facebook group members struggle to get law enforcement to take their investigation seriously. It’s a crazy story with a lot of twists and turns, and with just three episodes, it makes for a fast-paced and engaging watch, despite some questions left frustratingly unanswered. And, in case you’re wondering, it does not show the actual footage of kittens dying. The documentary mini-series also brings up some interesting ethical questions. The killer in this case, like many serial killers, is really in it for the rush of the chase and the worldwide attention. He only escalates to murdering people after he gets so much notice for his initial cat-killing video. If this group of well-intentioned individuals hadn’t banded together on the mission to find this killer, would a man still be dead? If today’s world weren’t so obsessed with blood and gore, would there be less? That’s left up to you to decide. (three episodes, 60 min. each) Δ —Kasey Bubnash

Auntie-hood Making the LA trek to keep up with a 5-year-old nephew

T

here’s something extraordinary about being an aunt to a 5-yearold, but I’ve learned it’s even more special if you live exactly 200 miles away from one another. For the better part of my auntie-hood, I’ve lived in San Luis Obispo while my nephew Miles Sanchez is growing up in Torrance—in Los Angeles County. Although 200 miles is nothing—and let’s be honest it’s just a three and a-half to four-hour drive away—I visit my family about five to six times a year. Which is a lot, compared to some that might have family out of state, but to a 5-year-old it’s not enough. You see, I split my usual four-day visits between my parents, siblings, aunt, and Miles. To be fair, I spend most of that time with him and my parents. Visits with my nephew are something I look forward to, especially because he doesn’t want to sit next to anyone else, hold anyone else’s hand, or play with anyone else but me. But when it’s time for me to leave, he furrows his brow, looks down, and filled with sadness he never fails to ask me, “Why don’t you live close to me like uncle, nana, and papa?” Crushed, I usually reply by telling him I have bills to pay and a job that I really enjoy. He’s never satisfied with that answer. The soul-crushing questions started about two years ago, and it made me realize that I want to do more than just talk over the phone and occasionally Facetime with him. So I decided that I want to make the trip to visit my family, more importantly my nephew, as often as I can—and I recently found the perfect opportunity. Miles is at such an interesting age where he can really express himself conversationally and figure out what his interests are by trying new things. His newest interest is basketball, and at the beginning of the year he joined a local youth team. On Feb. 22 I woke up at 5 a.m. and hit the road by 5:30 to make it to his 10 a.m. game. Miles had no idea my boyfriend and

FUTURE ATHLETE Miles Sanchez is only 5 years old but he could be ready for the big leagues pretty soon.

I were making the early drive to support him and his team that morning. When he opened the door of his house, at the request of my sister, Miles’ first question was how we got to his house and the next was if we were going to watch his basketball game. He was beaming and instantly attached himself to my hip. On the way to the basketball court at the Dee Hardison Sports Center, Miles showed us his techniques for playing defense—spreading his arms out from his sides—and shooting the ball into the basket—a slight flick of the wrist. Clearly I know nothing about basketball, but not to worry. My nephew said all I would have to do is watch his game and I would learn. What I enjoyed most about watching the game was how much fun Miles and his team were having and the support shown by the parents. Sure, the coaches would remind the kids where to go on the court or to hold their positions, but it wasn’t aggressive or negative. It really felt like a place where an interest and a possible passion could be cultivated—if that’s the child’s desire. The competitiveness can come later. When the game was over, Miles ignored his parents congratulating him on a good game and ran straight to me to say, “And that’s how you play basketball, auntie.

Spam … seriously? Final round of local competition challenged top Central Coast chefs to make miracles from hellish anti-food items

T

he Chef Showdown started out like something on one of those Food Network competition shows: four top chefs creating gorgeous masterpieces in a studio kitchen. But this was on the Central Coast, at the Paso Robles Event Center before locals’ very eyes. The audience even participated in judging after visiting the tables of small bites from each of the dueling top chefs: James King of Somerset Grill in Pismo Beach; Julien Asseo of Les Petites Canailles in Paso Robles; Libry Darusman of Thomas Hill Organics in Paso; and Will Torres of Farmhouse Corner Market in SLO. I saw a couple of middle-schoolers trying Torres’ beef tongue for the first time and nodding to their parents. “It’s actually good!” one said. For his small bites offering, chef King made a hobo stew, a twist on his mom’s recipe, in a cup that warmed me into comfort heaven, especially after hearing his story about its Dust Bowl/Great Depression origins. Chef Darusman won me over with his homemade pasta, and I was delighted to have such a big portion of chef Asseo’s beef cheeks and truffled mashed potatoes. Chef Asseo ended up winning the People’s Choice award for those tender, melt-in-your mouth, slow-cooked braised beef cheeks served with light and earthy celery root puree. Those small bites were the perfect winter dish, braised in veal stock and red wine with carrots, onions, and mushrooms. Having grown up in France, he’s accustomed to cooking with different cuts of meat. “They’re every bit as good as a rib-eye steak if you know what you’re doing,” said Jensen Lorenzen of Larder Meat, visiting the chefs onstage. Patrick Brooks, co-owner and distiller of Wine Shine and host of Everything Paso Robles, hosted the Feb. 23 event. Full of life, humor, and charisma, he talked about the love of bacon (which he calls “meat candy”), and reminded all the chefs they are winners just by being there. After facing off in the small bites contest, the chefs went into a first round blind competition of a dish of their choosing, with King versus Asseo, and Darusman versus Torres. The winners of that round went on to the final showdown. As it turned out, Brooks was right: They were all winners. In the first round, the point spread was only a 10-point difference (out of 185), and for the second round, chef Asseo ended up facing chef Darusman, chosen from a mere five-point spread. The contest was a family affair—not just for the spectators. Chef Asseo’s little pixie of a daughter was running all around the stage. Chef King’s identical twin brother

Chef Darusman had a gang of Thomas Hill Organics groupies show up in support, yelling out, “Go Libry!’” And chef Torres was chatting and visiting his support crew in the audience between rounds, hands in his front pockets, like the jolly fellow he is. The competition also felt at times like a seminar, with chef Asseo noting that the key to making shepherd’s pie is “low and slow”—low heat, and you can use bone marrow to replace butter for a silky touch. “I put plenty of butter in, that’s the French in me,” he said, adding later that he uses the French native Espelette pepper to add subtle heat to many of his dishes, often in place of black pepper. Chef Darusman made fire and liquidnitrogen steam with his preparations. A big fan of the juxtaposition of hot and cold on the plate, he likes to play with temperature, and he knows how to make a mean cauliflower rice flavored with citrus and almonds. In the first round against chef Torres, Darusman used the rice as the cold component. He used liquid nitrogen in a blender to make mysterious fog flow forth. He shared technical expertise about ground beef and rice, Brazil nuts, mousse and ginger—fire and ice—all of which went totally over my head. In the end, Darusman made a two-part masterpiece with more colors than the most beautiful rainbow, reminiscent of sushi and sashimi. Chef King made a traditional beef and stout shepherd’s pie topped with melted sharp cheddar. He listed all the ingredients—onions, garlic, carrots, mushrooms, herbs, “and a bunch of stout … I even put some in the food actually,” he said. Chef Torres made Filipino-style congee for the first round showdown with chef Darusman. Torres said he grew up with Filipino friends and found inspiration in their cooking. His version of congee was all fresh, local ingredients. He used fluffy Arborio rice; chicken, pork, and beef stock; ginger; black garlic; shallots; chilis; and vinegar, giving us tips on texture, flavor, acid, and fermentation.

CONGEE-NIALITY Will you just look at what chef Will Torres of Farmhouse Corner Market made in round one? This bowl of congee certainly upgraded what is considered a peasant dish in the Philippines. PHOTOS BY BETH GIUFFRE

THE FOUR TOPS Chosen from our growing pool of amazing chefs, these four entertained the public with their super culinary skills and charming anecdotes at this year’s Chef Showdown. From left are Libry Darusman of Thomas Hill Organics; Will Torres of Farmhouse Corner Market in SLO; James King of Somerset Grill in Pismo Beach; and Julien Asseo of Les Petites Canailles of Paso Robles.

Asseo went on to earn the most points in a blind tasting to woo the judges. The New York Times has already singled out and praised Asseo’s new restaurant in Paso Robles, Les Petites Canailles, which means “little rascals” in French. Chef Asseo joked that he probably should have chosen something that’s easier to pronounce, but he wanted the name to portray a casual environment that feels like home. “It’s my second home,” he said. “It’s my first home, actually.” Asseo is every bit as charming as you would expect. He told us he learned much of what he knows from his mom, an amateur chef but the best chef he’s ever known and someone who always spices meals to absolute perfection. Then came the final showdown featuring the bag of weird food ingredients. Asseo and Darusman had to use liver from Larder Meats, and there was bacon in there too; gorgeous veggies from the Talley Farms CSA box; Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Patrick Brooks’ Wine Shine brandy. And Spam. Seriously?

“I get the brandy,” I said to the gentleman next to me. “But why the Cheetos?” He said, “You know Spam was invented during World War II for the soldiers?” If this were a football game, the Spam is like having an alien from Area 51 subbed in, and those unnatural bright red chips—that’s like having a crackhead on the team. The real challenge: The chefs had to use all mystery items as main ingredients. On one side of the Presentation Kitchen, Darusman was cooking with fire. Literally. He was so entertaining. Brooks asked him what was going on in his mind. “Spam and Cheetos, I guess,” he said. Darusman’s final dish looked amazing. At the end of the 45 minutes, he leaned back and let us see his plate—it was a Spamy, brandylicious, liver dream (and breaded and branded in Cheetos). Across the kitchen, it was apparent that Asseo had never tried Spam. FLAVOR continued page 70

“Zat’s not fresh at all,” he said with a refreshing amount of humor. He paused for a moment, then came up with a game plan, which eventually earned him the $1,000 prize for best dish. As he was cooking, Asseo took some swigs out of the Wine Shine brandy. “Do I get to keep this?” he asked Brooks. Brooks laughed and said, “Yes you do, my friend.” Δ

D INE ’N’ DISH Dottie’s organic lavender-infused caramels

I met Patty Brown, the owner of Dottie’s Sweet Delights at the Inspired Home and Gourmet Expo, in between rounds of the recent Chef Showdown. She had all her samples out, and my fav was her lavenderinfused sea salted honey caramels. Wrapped in colorful foil, the buttery, smooth caramels sweetly sink into your mouth and surprise you with a bouquet of lavender under your nose. What I love about all of Dottie’s products is that the ingredients she works with are sweet, but they won’t hurt your teeth with artificial sugars or preservatives. Brown named her Santa Maria-based business after her mom, Dottie, who taught her and her four siblings how to cook when she was very young. All of her products are handmade to order in small batches at SLO’s Finest commercial kitchen in San Luis Obispo. The homegrown company ships nationwide and delivers in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. A half-pound bag of lavender-infused sea salted honey caramels is $13.95 at dottiessweetdelights.com. Be sure to check out Brown’s beautifully wrapped party favors and gift collections there as well. You can order by mail or look for her treats at specialty markets and boutiques. For custom orders, contact Brown by phone or text at (805) 607-9495 or email at patty@ dottiessweetdelights.com.

LEGAL NOTICES profit corporation. You should also be aware that ownership of the foregoing interest subjects the owner to the provisions of the governing documents of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, including but not limited to the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions referenced above, the bylaws of the foregoing nonprofit corporation, and the applicable rules and regulations in effect for the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park. You are encouraged to investigate the nature of the property and the foregoing governing documents, copies of which are either recorded or available at the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park business office.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE

YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER AN ASSESSMENT LIEN. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE PURSUANT TO A NOTICE OF DEFAULT AND ELECTION TO SELL, AS SHOWN BELOW. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States, or a currently dated cashier’s check drawn by a state or national bank, as specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this State), will be held by the agent of the duly appointed Trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest held by the Trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to that certain Notice of Delinquent Assessment recorded on September 20, 2019 as instrument number 2019039846 in the Official Records of San Luis Obispo County, California and the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions of Tamerlo Investments N.V., a Netherlands Antilles Corporation on August 30, 1978 as instrument number 41866 in Book 2096, Pages 914-955, as amended thereafter. The sale will be held pursuant to the Notice of Default and Election to Sell (“Notice of Default”) described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, encumbrances, or otherwise, on an “as-is, where-is” basis, to pay the sum secured by the lien, with interest and late charges thereon, advances, if any, under the occupancy of the premises and all governing documents of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, or under terms of the lien, interest thereon, fees, charges, and expenses of the Trustee, for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be as set forth below. Accrued interest, costs and additional advances, if any, may increase this figure prior to sale. It is also possible that at the time of sale, the opening bid may be less than the amount stated. The beneficiary may bid at sale and may elect to bid less than their full credit bid. Revocable Trust Record Owner(s) at the time the Notice of Delinquent Assessment and Notice of Default were recorded: Michael Mayerski and the Estate of Edward Mayerski/Edward John Mayerski Lien Claimant / Beneficiary: Holiday Recreational Park Owners Association 100 S. Dolliver Pismo Beach, CA 93449-2997 (805) 773-1121 Duly Appointed Trustee: Hart | King Date of Notice of Default: October 19, 2019 Recording Date: October 28, 2019 Instrument No.: 2019047601 Recorded in the Official Records of San Luis Obispo County, California Date and Time of Sale: March 13, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. Place of Sale: AT THE BUSINESS OFFICE OF THE HOLIDAY RECREATIONAL VEHICLE PARK OWNERS ASSOCIATION, 100 S. DOLLIVER, PISMO BEACH, CALIFORNIA 93449-2997 Estimated amount due: $3,526.40 Accrued interest, costs and additional advances, if any, may increase the sale figure prior to sale; and it is also possible that at the time of sale, the opening bid may be less than the amount stated herein. From information which the Trustee deems reliable, the Trustee believes that the legal description and street address, or other common designation, of the real property to be sold is as follows: AN UNDIVIDED 1/875 INTEREST IN AND TO THE REAL PROPERTY DESCRIBED ON THE ATTACHED EXHIBIT “A” PURSUANT TO A DEED REFERENCING LOCKER #506 100 S. Dolliver Pismo Beach, California 934492997 The Trustee and the authorized agent of the Trustee disclaim any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Written directions to the above-referenced property may be obtained by submitting a written request to the beneficiary identified herein within ten (10) days of the first publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale pursuant to Section 2924f of the California Civil Code. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are

LEGAL NOTICES

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 entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. Rather, it would entitle you to ownership of a deed evidencing an undivided 1/875 ownership interest in the real property described in Exhibit A and owned by the members of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, a California nonprofit corporation. You should also be aware that ownership of the foregoing interest subjects the owner to the provisions of the governing documents of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, including but not limited to the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions referenced above, the bylaws of the foregoing nonprofit corporation, and the applicable rules and regulations in effect for the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park. You are encouraged to investigate the nature of the property and the foregoing governing documents, copies of which are either recorded or available at the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park business office. You are also encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on the property described in Exhibit A by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. 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 (805) 773-1121 for information regarding the trustee’s sale, using the reference number set forth above, 37115.025 ([Mayerski] - Locker #506). 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. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

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.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Progress rarely unfolds in a glorious, ever-rising upward arc. The more usual pattern is gradual and uneven. Each modest ascent is followed by a phase of retrenchment and integration. In the best-case scenario, the most recent ascent reaches a higher level than the previous ascent. By my estimate, you’re in one of those periods of retrenchment and integration right now, Aries. It’s understandable if you feel a bit unenthusiastic about it. But I’m here to tell you that it’s crucial to your next ascent. Let it work its subtle magic.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are most likely to be in sweet alignment with cosmic rhythms if you regard the next three weeks as a time of graduation. I encourage you to take inventory of the lessons you’ve been studying since your birthday in 2019. How have you done in your efforts to foster interesting, synergistic intimacy? Are you more passionately devoted to what you love? Have you responded brightly as life has pushed you to upgrade the vigor and rigor of your commitments? Just for fun, give yourself a grade for those “classes,” as well as any others that have been important. Then—again, just for fun—draw up a homemade diploma for yourself to commemorate and honor your work.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Are you ready to seize a more proactive role in shaping what happens in the environments you share with cohorts? Do you have any interest in exerting leadership to enhance the well-being of the groups that are important to you? Now is an excellent time to take brave actions that will raise the spirits and boost the fortunes of allies whose fates are intermingled with yours. I hope you’ll be a role model for the art of pleasing oneself while being of service to others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian author Lionel Trilling (1905-1975) was an influential intellectual and literary critic. One of his heroes was another influential intellectual and literary critic, Edmund Wilson. On one occasion, Trilling was using a urinal in a men’s room at the New School for Social Research in New York. Imagine how excited he was when Wilson, whom he had never met, arrived to use the urinal right next to his. Now imagine his further buoyancy when Wilson not only spoke to Trilling but also expressed familiarity with his work. I foresee similar luck or serendipity coming your way soon: seemingly unlikely encounters with interesting resources and happy accidents that inspire your self-confidence.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Poet Conee Berdera delivered a poignant message to her most valuable possession: the flesh and blood vehicle that serves as sanctuary for all her yearnings, powers, and actions. “My beloved body,” she writes, “I am so sorry I did not love you enough.” Near the poem’s end she vows “to love and cherish” her body. I wish she would have been even more forceful, saying something like, “From now on, dear body, I promise to always know exactly what you need and give it to you with all my ingenuity and panache.” Would you consider making such a vow to your own most valuable possession, Leo? It’s a favorable time to do so.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Luckily, the turning point you have arrived at doesn’t present you with 20 different possible futures. You don’t have to choose from among a welter of paths headed in disparate directions. There are only a few viable options to study and think about. Still, I’d like to see you further narrow down the alternatives. I hope you’ll use the process of elimination as you get even clearer about what you don’t want. Let your fine mind gather a wealth of detailed information and objective evidence, then hand over the final decision to your intuition.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Certain artists are beyond my full comprehension. Maybe I’m not smart enough to understand

their creations or I’m not deep enough to fathom why their work is considered important. For example, I don’t enjoy or admire the operas of Wagner or the art of Mark Rothko. Same with the music of Drake or the novels of Raymond Carter or the art of Andy Warhol. The problem is with me, not them. I don’t try to claim they’re overrated or mediocre. Now I urge you to do what I just did, Libra, only on a broader scale. Acknowledge that some of the people and ideas and art and situations you can’t appreciate are not necessarily faulty or wrong or inadequate. Their value may simply be impossible for you to recognize. It’s a perfect time for you to undertake this humble work. I suspect it will be liberating.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio-born Ralph Bakshi has made animated films and TV shows for over 60 years. His work has been influential. “I’m the biggest ripped-off cartoonist in the history of the world,” he says. Milder versions of his experience are not uncommon for many Scorpios. People are prone to copying you and borrowing from you and even stealing from you. They don’t always consciously know they’re doing it, and they may not offer you proper appreciation. I’m guessing that something like this phenomenon may be happening for you right now. My advice? First, be pleased about how much clout you’re wielding. Second, if anyone is borrowing from you without making the proper acknowledgment, speak up about it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Vainly I sought nourishment in shadows and errors,” wrote author Jorge Luis Borges. We have all been guilty of miscalculations like those. Each of us has sometimes put our faith in people and ideas that weren’t worthy of us. None of us is so wise that we always choose influences that provide the healthiest fuel. That’s the bad news, Sagittarius. The good news is that you now have excellent instincts about where to find the best long-term nourishment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Poet Adrienne Rich wrote, “When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.” I believe this same assertion is true about people of all genders. I also suspect that right now you are in a particularly pivotal position to be a candid revealer: to enhance and refine everyone’s truth-telling by being a paragon of honesty yourself. To achieve the best results, I encourage you to think creatively about what exactly it means for you to tell the deep and entire truth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Through some odd Aquarian-like quirk, astrologers have come to harbor the apparently paradoxical view that your sign is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus. At first glance, that’s crazy! Saturn is the planet of discipline, responsibility, conservatism, diligence, and order. Uranus is the planet of awakening, surprise, rebellion, barrierbreaking, and liberation. How can you Aquarians incorporate the energies of both? Well, that would require a lengthy explanation beyond the scope of this horoscope. But I will tell you this: During the rest of the year 2020, you will have more potential to successfully coordinate your inner Saturn and your inner Uranus than you have had in years. Homework: Meditate on how you will do just that.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1637, renowned English poet John Milton wrote “Lycidas,” a poetic elegy in honor of a friend. Reading it today, almost four centuries later, we are struck by how archaic and obscure the language is, with phrases like “O ye laurels” and “Ah! who hath reft my dearest pledge?” A famous 20th-century Piscean poet named Robert Lowell was well-educated enough to understand Milton’s meaning, but also decided to “translate” all of “Lycidas” into plainspoken modern English. I’d love to see you engage in comparable activities during the coming weeks, Pisces: updating the past; reshaping and reinterpreting your old stories; revising the ways you talk about and think about key memories.
