FULL-TIME WRITER The Sun in Northern Santa Barbara County is looking for its next staff writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, source-wrangling, story-chasing someone. Are you sick of editing or regurgitating press releases day after day? Or maybe it’s those damn list things— you know the ones: “Top 10 hottest places to eat your lunch on a rainy day.” Or maybe it’s just not being able to put the time and reporting into a story that deserves it: the weeks and repeated phone calls that give a story what it needs to ripen into the hard-charging, data-filled narrative it’s dying to be; the time that turns a “meh” story into one that blows a hole in the status quo. Can you see the big picture of what a story means to a community? Is that what drives you? Do you know what it takes to—yes, we know, it’s cliché—make a difference in the lives of the people you cover? Does that sort of thing matter to you? If so, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for: a staff writer who isn’t afraid to take on the tedious, the tenuous, or the talented. That certain someone who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to the communities we cover at the Sun and New Times. Oil, agricultural, water, and environmental advocacy aren’t the only things that drive this place—although those are pretty juicy beats. There’s more, and we want to hire someone who can drive his or herself to unearth those stories and tell them in a meaningful way. Let us know if you’ve got what it takes. We dare you.

Laetitia Winery part of lawsuit halting El Campo intersection closure

M

ay 13 should have been the day that Caltrans starting eliminating left-hand turns on Highway 101 at El Campo Road and three other intersections between Los Berros Road and Traffic Way, but a lawsuit filed by Laetitia Vineyard and Winery’s parent company has indefinitely halted the project. Vintage Wine Estates, which purchased Laetitia in March, filed a lawsuit in Sacramento County Court on May 7 against the state of California, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and Papich Construction Company Inc. Due to the legal challenge, the judge assigned to the case ordered a temporary stay on the El Campo project while the case is in litigation— stopping it indefinitely. Days after the lawsuit was filed, James Grant—whose seven-month advocacy spurred the closure discussion after his son, Jordan Grant, was fatally injured in October 2018— called for a boycott of Laetitia Winery and all other wineries owned by Vintage Wine Estates. “We called for a boycott as we recognized that this was an intentional business decision by Vintage Wine Estates to try to maintain wine tasting traffic,” Grant said in an email interview. “Even though with the expected safety changes, their customers would still have had access to their winery, but some would have to drive a little farther.” Grant also started a petition on May 10 on change.org to boycott the winery and parent company; as of press time, the petition had more than 2,400 signatures. The lawsuit, obtained by New Times, states that Vintage Wine Estates seeks to compel Caltrans to properly analyze, disclose, and mitigate the significant adverse environmental impacts associated with the closure of the four intersections—El Campo Road, Tower Grove Drive/ Laetitia Drive, Hemi Road, and an unnamed road. In the suit, Vintage alleges that Caltrans violated California Environmental Quality

Paso Robles Unified has a new superintendent

Five months after Paso Robles Unified School District’s former superintendent resigned from his position, the district welcomes a new leader, Curt Dubost. At its May 14 meeting, the school board unanimously approved his three-year employment contract with the district. Dubost will begin his duties on July 1 with an annual salary of $180,000. Board President Joel Peterson told New Times that the district is excited to have Dubost as its new superintendent: He’s the right person at the right time. “He’s a proven leader, with experience in three different districts. Over his career, he has a

record of improving districts—both from student achievement to a financial standpoint. Lastly, he’s local—he’s from North County—and wants to see our district succeed,” Peterson said. Dubost was selected as the finalist from more than 30 candidates who applied for the position during the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education’s search. According to the Office of Education, Dubost has a long résumé in leading districts. He was the superintendent of the Templeton Unified School District from 1992 to 2002 and the Taft Unified School District superintendent from 2002 to 2007. Dubost came out of retirement to lead the San Miguel Joint Union School District in 2010. NEWS continued page 6

below the legal threshold of 0.3 percent. Lee noted that due to the seed certification issues and the time of year, he expects most local hemp production to kick off next year. “We’ll know the true interest sometime in 2020,” he said. —Peter Johnson

Industrial hemp is now allowed in SLO County

Atascadero residents could see an Starting this month, the San Luis increase cost in their Obispo County Department of Agriculture wastewater is accepting applications for industrial services bill hemp production—opening up a new market that had previously been limited to only growers tied to research institutions. The county’s May 3 announcement hit as long-awaited hemp regulations at the state level take effect. They require hemp growers to apply for registrations through their county agricultural commissioner’s offices. Hemp, a strain of cannabis with a low THC concentration, has a wide variety of uses— from fiber, to oil, to paper, to food products. Marc Lee, SLO County assistant agricultural commissioner, told New Times his office has approved three hemp applications thus far this month. He said general interest in the crop is through the roof. “Over the last six months there’s been immense interest, hundreds of inquiries,” Lee said. Unlike cannabis, which is highly regulated in the county, hemp falls under “crop production and grazing,” which means growing it comes with less red tape and fewer strings attached. “It does not have anything like setbacks or maximum acreage amounts,” Lee said. For now, hopeful hemp cultivators will not be allowed to start farms over the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. Local water rules require that new crops planted over the basin offset their water use—but the county hasn’t calculated what hemp’s water demand is. Lee said that issue will be revisited by the Board of Supervisors in the near future. “The county needs to amend the ordinance itself because it doesn’t list hemp in there,” he said. Industrial hemp growers must use certified seeds to earn quick approvals. Lee said most of the certified hemp seeds out there are of “the fiber variety,” yet there’s more local interest around CBD hemp varieties. In cases where the proposed cultivar isn’t certified, the grower is required to prove through lab testing that it yields a THC concentration

The city of Atascadero is proposing to increase wastewater rates for all property owners connected to the municipal sewer system At the May 14 City Council meeting, the council unanimously approved six steps to begin the process of increasing the rates, which would go into effect Aug. 8. The sewer service charges have only been adjusted twice since 1982. Atascadero Mayor Heather Moreno said the city has done a good job of not raising the rates in 25 years. “But here we are at the place where we’re needing to do this, and I think at least those few of you that are here and hopefully those of you that are watching and listening are understanding the need for this if we’re going to be good stewards of the wastewater and have this working for decades into the future,” Moreno said during the meeting. According to a staff report, wastewater collection and treatment system customers are made up of roughly 5,000 parcels that include residential, commercial, and light industrial. Tuckfield & Associates, an independent financial consultant, completed a comprehensive wastewater rate study for the city and recommended increasing the current monthly sewer service charge per single-family residence by $3.83 for a total monthly rate of $24.01 for the 201920 fiscal year—a 19 percent increase. The study stated that the increase was a result of the rising treatment and energy costs, impacts of regulation and legislation, past and continued critical upgrades, and/or replacement of wastewater facilities and infrastructure. The council approved a budget amendment and authorization of the director of administrative services to appropriate $5,000 from the wastewater fund for costs related to the Proposition 218 protest process. Council members also

approved allocating an additional $15,000 from the fund for professional services related to the wastewater rate study and support activities. Atascadero residents will have a chance to protest the increase in writing after they receive the Proposition 218 notices, which the city will mail out by May 24. The community has until the July 9 public hearing to submit protests, and the city will then decide whether to approve the increase. —Karen Garcia

Property ownership confusion engulfs Hillside Church

As the 5Cities Homeless Coalition (5CHC) tries to complete a purchase of Hillside Church in Grover Beach to develop a homeless services facility, an ownership dispute at the church is breaking out, potentially threatening the sale. On May 6, William John Fleming, an opponent of the sale who claims he’s the president of Hillside Church, filed paperwork with the state and county clerk that granted ownership of the property back to Bethel Baptist Church of Grover Beach, which was the church’s original affiliation dating back to 1962. In recent years, the church had moved under the umbrella of Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA)—a nationwide congregation. In October 2018, then-pastor Ron Kennedy filed papers transferring the property from Bethel Baptist Church to Hillside Church of CMA. Fleming could not be reached by press time, but he had argued against the sale to the SLO County Board of Supervisors on April 23, before the board would allocate $2.7 million in state grants to help subsidize the 5CHC project planned at the site. Fleming said he was a board member at the church. “I can tell you that the bylaws of Bethel Baptist Church were not followed when it was turned into a [CMA] church,” Fleming told the board. “I want everyone here to be aware of the fact that we’re not going to sit and take this. We are going to seek remedy.”

Following his May 6 deed filing, according to the SLO County Assessor’s Office, the church is back in the hands of Bethel Baptist Church, with Fleming as its agent. “As far as we’re concerned at this point, Bethel Baptist is now the owner,” County Assessor Tom Bordonaro told New Times on May 14. Bordonaro added that a challenge of the transfer would have to happen in court. Representatives of CMA and the Hillside Church could not be reached by press time. Sometime after the property changed hands to Hillside Church of CMA in 2018, the 5CHC entered into talks to buy the church property. The sale is currently in escrow. “We’ve been made aware that there isn’t necessarily a clear title,” said Janna Nichols, executive director of 5CHC. “We’re hoping that can be resolved soon. In the meantime, homelessness is still a crisis down here.” On Mother’s Day, Fleming led a Sunday service outside the locked church on Newport Avenue, where he was joined by residents of the neighborhood who are opposed to the homeless services project that may replace it. Grover Beach police stood guard. Willie Heck, a pastor of four years at Hillside Church, told New Times he and its remaining members are looking for a new location to worship. “It was ugly,” Heck said about the dispute. “It’s just a shame. ... People are forgetting that church is about the people and not the buildings.” —Peter Johnson

Pinpointed Water officials name alleged culprit of TCE contamination near airport

A

nearly four-year-long investigation into how a chemical known to cause cancer showed up in the water of more than a dozen rural wells by the SLO County Airport has finally concluded with an alleged culprit. Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board investigators say that Noll Inc., a machine shop on Thread Lane, is responsible for the trichloroethylene (TCE) leak that contaminated at least 14 wells in the Buckley Road area. The regional water board zeroed in on the 4665 Thread Lane property after recent water samples from under the site showed TCE levels that were 157 times above the federal drinking standard. Officials concluded that the site marked ground zero for the 1/2-mile-by-1/3-mile overall TCE plume. “We know the hotspot’s below that property,” said Greg Bishop, a senior engineering geologist and site cleanup program manager at the regional water board. On May 3, the water board issued a draft TCE cleanup and abatement order to Noll Inc. If finalized, it would require a full cleanup of the contamination and force Noll to provide replacement water to the affected residents and businesses in the interim.

“The Central Coast Water Board concludes that the dischargers have caused or permitted TCE waste to be discharged,” the draft order reads, “and have caused the creation of a condition of pollution and nuisance to adjacent, downgrading, and nearby land owners.” If ingested or inhaled at unsafe levels, TCE can have causative effects on cancers like kidney and lymphoma, and bring about other health complications, especially prenatal, according to the SLO County Department of Public Health. Janice and John Noll, the listed Noll property representatives, did not return requests for comment from New Times. Investigators believe that the TCE spill likely occurred decades ago. TCE is a manmade solvent commonly used as a degreasing agent in machining operations before it was largely phased out of the industry in the 1970s, according to the water board. Founded in 1956, Noll Inc. specializes in lead screw and drive assembly manufacturing, per its website. A similar but less toxic substance, TCA (1,1,1-trichloroethane), often replaced the use of TCE in machining. In its investigation, the water board found TCA in Noll’s waste manifests, as well as in the groundwater. In addition, investigators

said the property owners acknowledged that TCE had been used to clean typewriters in the building, and that other tenants at the property may have used TCE in the past. Bishop said he doesn’t know exactly when and how the alleged spill occurred. “Typically, these are accidents, and they just sort of happen. Things spill on the ground,” he said. The contamination is believed to have occurred some time before 1995— which was the year that TCE was first detected in an industrial supply well in

The water board’s winding search for the source of the TCE included testing at the SLO County Airport, which came at a $592,711 cost to the county. Those tests eliminated the airport as a potential culprit. The investigation also touched area property owners like Alan Strasbaugh, who told New Times in 2017 that he spent $50,000 in connection with the water board’s investigation. Noll Inc’s water testing was delayed due to financial hardship claims by the owners, according to the water board. The Nolls, and some others who made claims,

the Buckley Road area. The EPA didn’t classify TCE as a human carcinogen until 2005. It was one residential well owner’s discovery of TCE in 2015 that kicked off the recent investigation. Of the 14 wells that have since tested positive for TCE levels above safe thresholds, most have a known treatment system in place. SLO County environmental health officials told New Times that any new groundwater wells proposed in the affected area will be required to test first for TCE. If TCE is found, the water can be treated with a granular activated carbon system. “The good news is it’s really easy to remove, and the treatment is not expensive,” Environmental Health Supervisor Leslie Terry said.

eventually received financial assistance via a water board grant program that allowed the testing to go forward last year. The water board’s draft cleanup order states that it doesn’t “prevent other parties or persons affected by TCE pollution from taking an independent action.” It sets a deadline of Aug. 13, 2019, for Noll to submit a cleanup and monitoring plan. The order is currently open for public comment through June 14. It will be the subject of a meeting at the water board offices in SLO on May 21. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Two languages San Luis Coastal is looking to add a new dual-immersion program to its district

I

n San Luis Obispo County, there’s one school that offers a two-way immersion program, where students receive an education in English and in Spanish. Pacheco Elementary School has been a dual-immersion school for 23 years, and San Luis Coastal Unified School District officials think it might be time to start a second such program. Rick Mayfield, former principal of Pacheco Elementary and current director of learning and achievement for San Luis Coastal, said Pacheco had 80 applicants for 16 spots last March during open enrollment. “We have 160 students from the coast who currently attend Pacheco and another 50 on the current waiting list to attend,” Mayfield said. “There’s a lot of kids coming into town every day from the coast, riding the bus, who want to participate in this particular program.” San Luis Coastal is currently proposing to fill the gap by phasing in a dual-immersion program at Baywood Elementary School. The program would start with the kindergarten class in the fall of 2020-21 and continue to add a grade level each year. He said that although the district is looking at Baywood as the site of the program’s implementation, it’s not set in stone. But he does feel it makes sense for the program to be there, he said. “The largest number of students that are attending Pacheco are from Baywood, and the largest number of recent

“I would love to offer a program here in town where we’re keeping our students closer to home and in their communities,” she said. “I think the community at Baywood is amazing, tight, and a close community. My message is that it’s going to remain that way no matter if we’re speaking in two languages or one.” While there’s been positive feedback from parents, Stephens said there have been concerns about the proposed change. The tight-knit community that she mentioned is the reason that Baywood parent Jennifer Miller has mixed feelings about the proposed program. Miller has two children who attend Baywood currently and a 2-year-old who could benefit from the program by the time it would be implemented, if approved by the district. She said she believes being bilingual is an asset—as is the learned culture that comes along with it. “It’s a really important element, and I really like how Pacheco incorporates acceptance of different cultures and celebrates different cultures. It changes the way you view the world, and you’re a better global citizen because of it,” Miller said. But she worries about her school community, the teachers who have been there 10-plus years, and the connections made between parents and teachers. “The prospect of potentially losing those teachers is just really sad,” she said. “I just hope that the district is able to do it in a way with integrity and support the teachers that we’re not able to keep.”

‘I just think there are so many benefits of learning in two languages when you’re young.’

applicants to attend are from Baywood,” Mayfield said. Another benefit, he said, is that Baywood recently welcomed a new principal, Lisa Stephens, this academic school year. Stephens taught at Pacheco for 11 years and spent two years doing program development when the school transitioned its model from the 50/50 model to 90/10. In the 90/10 model, students learn to read, write, and speak in 90 percent Spanish and 10 percent English during the kindergarten year. English is introduced more and more over the years until the students are taught 50 percent of the time in English and 50 percent in Spanish. Stephens believes that if Baywood were to phase in the program, it would be an academic boost for the students now and in their futures. “I just think there are so many benefits of learning in two languages when you’re young. There are cognitive benefits of learning two languages; it broadens educational and career opportunities down the road. When you’re learning a language at 5, you’re a sponge and you pick it up so easily,” she said. Stephens said another benefit is eliminating the need for students to travel in order to receive this specific education.

Mayfield said there would be a change in personnel at the school if the program were to be phased in. “Nobody loses their jobs, but some people will have to move to other schools to bring in bilingual teachers. But we would do that in a way that is smooth and works for both the teachers and the school,” Mayfield said. Dawn Addis, a Morro Bay City Council member and SLO Women’s March cofounder, enrolled her two sons at Pacheco. Although Addis works for the San Luis Coastal Unified School District, she spoke with New Times as a parent. When Addis was in middle school, she decided she wanted to be a teacher. At the time, she said she was told that learning Spanish would benefit her career because of the state’s demographics. “When I had my own kids, I wanted to be able to not just give them that gift, but also have them be able to connect with other people from other places,” she said. “I think it’s a really important skill to be able to connect across cultures.” The discussion of the proposed dualimmersion program will continue at a public May 21 district board meeting. ∆ Staff Writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

t the first creek crossing, you know it’s not going to be a smooth ride up Hi Mountain Road. It’s steep and deep, with rivulets of earth carved out by heavy creek flows rolling up the other side. This road was graded and re-opened to the public in 2018, but a winter of heavy rain flowing across packed dirt put deep grooves into the path of vehicles. Climbing into Los Padres National Forest, the ruts up ahead make the trek bouncy and slow-going. A high-clearance vehicle is a necessity. Four-wheel drive is recommended. At the 3,198-foot-high summit, land stretches for miles in all directions. Lopez Lake, wineries, the Pacific Ocean, and sometimes—on the clearest of days— Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevada are visible from the Hi Mountain Condor Lookout. The restored fire tower is accessible one of two ways. From Pozo to the north or from Lopez Lake to the south. Both are bumpy, and the road isn’t really maintained in either direction— sometimes it’s closed. Basically, you have to be committed to get there.

Get more information about condors by visiting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s California Condor Recovery Program at fws.gov/cno/es/CalCondor/ Condor.cfm. Find the Hi Mountain Condor Lookout at condorlookout.org or on Facebook @condorlookout.

On the first Saturday in May, a handful of volunteers and visitors made the commitment, attending the Hi Mountain Lookout Picnic and Social. A life-sized condor mural soars from the first floor of the tower. Up top, glass windows give unfettered 360-degree bird’s-eye views of the surrounding wilderness. Heading into its 22nd year, Hi Mountain Condor Lookout is preparing for another summer of condor tracking. Through volunteers and Cal Poly student interns, the lookout has served as a radio-telemetry site for monitoring the giant scavengers since at least 1996. The lookout was restored in 2002 with funding from the Morro Coast Audubon Society and the help of dedicated volunteers such as Audubon member Steve Schubert, Kevin Cooper with the U.S. Forest Service, and Cal Poly professor Francis Villablanca. “It was kind of bird driven PHOTO COURTESY OF U.S. FISH AND WILDLIFE with a lot of cooperators,” said Cooper, who recently retired from his position as the Los Padres forest biologist. “It represents a lot of the work that I’ve done with conservation over the years ... and it’s really been a community thing. ... Plus it’s just beautiful up there. It’s a very special place.” Cooper met Schubert in the 1970s through their work monitoring peregrine falcons, a species that was close to extinction at the time. Peregrine falcon nesting habitat is similar to what condors prefer—rocky cliffs and sometimes tall snags. Both the Forest Service and Audubon volunteers were using the lookout to track falcon recovery. In the late 1980s and 1990s, the desire to help re-establish condors drove Cooper, Schubert, and others to restore the lookout and use it as a condor SOARING California condors often fly more than 100 monitoring site. miles a day, scouring their territories for food. 10 • New Times • May 16 - May 23, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

The falcon nesting sites observed from the lookout in the ’70s are considered to also be historic nesting sites for condors. Although condors haven’t used the nearby cliffs for more than 50 years, biologists hold out hope that as the population of condors continues to grow in Central California, they will return to their old stomping grounds. For now though, the telltale “beep, beep, beep” on the radio of a condor passing through from the north or south will have to suffice. The population of California condors dwindled to 22 in the wild before the wildlife conservation community underwent a huge experiment, capturing all of them, breeding them in captivity until the population had multiplied enough, and reintroducing them to the wild. More than 400 exist today, and the numbers are growing. Most of the condors are tracked, Cooper said, either through a radio transmitter or a GPS monitor. “The birds have been reproducing on their own pretty well,” Cooper said. “A lot of individual attention was given to the birds, and it’s paid off.” However, condors still face hurdles to recovery, including lead, DDT, and something called micro-trash—tiny pieces of garbage (bottle caps, pieces of glass, broken plastic fork tines, etc.) that people leave behind. “From a philosophical standpoint, those things that affect these species, like condors and falcons, also impact humans,” Cooper said. Continuing to address these impacts and bring back species that have been pushed to the brink of extinction is something people should strive for “as caretakers of our environments,” Cooper said. “And also taking responsibility for the impacts that we’ve had on those species because we’ve changed the survivability of them.”

Schubert introduces himself to the group gathered at Hi Mountain Condor Lookout on May 4. He and Cooper have been in it since the beginning, working to keep the lookout’s program running. He talks about the historic nesting sites before encouraging people to volunteer if they want to. “We now have a release site in San Simeon,” he says as he points northwest. “Condors are now in our backyard, and we’re hoping that as time goes on ... they will find their way back.” As a Cal Poly graduate, Schubert believes his work with the lookout is a way for him to give back to the school that brought him so much. He’s been involved with the Audubon since he was a freshman in 1974, and he’s been a link between the society, which often funds part of the student internships, and the lookout. As a graduate student, doing field work with the Los Padres National Forest changed his life. He would camp out near peregrine falcon nests to collect data and prevent thefts, which he said was a problem in the ’70s due to the birds being popular with falconers. “It was a big deal,” he said. “It impacted me in a huge way.” Cal Poly biological sciences student Marie Solis interned at the lookout in 2018 with a fellow student. Three to four days a week for 10 weeks, she and her partner lived at the lookout, sleeping on the metal walkway that runs all the way around the outside of the second story. The lookout does have space to sleep inside, but some volunteers prefer being in the open. “My partner and I slept outside on that every night, and we woke up to the sunrise every day,” Solis said in an email response to questions from New Times. They manned the lookout so people could come out and visit (inquiring before you go is highly recommended because it isn’t always open). But Solis said they also worked on other projects, continuing a multi-year survey of narrowleaf milkweed started by professor Villablanca, putting up a handful of game cameras to document some of the local residents, and using the radio telemetry equipment to track the condors. The final project they worked on became Solis’ senior project for Cal Poly. The pair conducted micro-trash surveys in roadside pullouts along Hi Mountain Road. Comparing what they found to a 2007 study in Los Padres National Forest on micro-trash collected from condor nests and necropsied condor chicks, the students found that the birds prefer plastic micro-trash to other materials. “An important thing to note about the project is that the pullouts we sampled were only along Hi Mountain Lookout Road, and the Los Padres National Forest is a huge national forest (about 3,000 square miles),” Solis cautioned. “Therefore, it’s totally possible that the

proportions we collected aren’t necessarily representative of the entire area. However, it’s a good start and potentially an interesting research question that can be further studied by future interns at the lookout.” Solis presented her work at a February meeting of the Western Section of the Wildlife Society, which is part of a national organization of professional wildlife biologists and managers in the U.S. Due to her work with condors, Solis will be interning with the Ventana Wildlife Society after she graduates with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences this June. The Ventana Wildlife Society has played a key role in the condor recovery process on the Central Coast. The nonprofit releases captive-bred condors at sites in Big Sur and Pinnacles National Park, with a recently added release site near San Simeon. Solis attributes her success to the work she did at the Hi Mountain Condor Lookout. “It can help open the door of many different opportunities, simply because one of its main focuses is simply exposing the interns to many field techniques and allowing the interns to experiment with different studies and assignments to see what their interests are,” Solis said. “The Hi Mountain internship is a great stepping stone in any biology undergraduate student’s career.” John Perrine, a Cal Poly professor who teaches wildlife ecology and conservation, recently took over for his colleague

Plus, there’s not a lot of money in wildlife conservation, which is a largely volunteerrun enterprise. So an internship that has a stipend, such as the one at the lookout, makes it an opportunity for all students, not just those who can afford to not be employed during the summer. “Everybody wants to help conserve the condors and restore the condors, and they want to help train the next generation of wildlife stewards,” Perrine said. “If you’ve got an undergrad coming out of school saying, ‘I’ve done radio-telemetry on condors,’ it gets your attention.”

SEASON’S GREETINGS The Hi Mountain Condor Lookout had an opening event on May 4. Volunteers repacked the lookout with all of the essentials for a summer of tracking condors, and visitors brought lunches with them for a picnic on top of the world.

Recovery

Hi Mountain is right in the middle of the only two condor flocks in California. Joseph Brandt, a supervisory wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s California Condor Recovery Program, said Fish and Wildlife manages a southern flock that extends from Los Padres’ southern end to almost as far north as Yosemite. The Ventana Wildlife Society and Pinnacles National Park manage the central California flock, which hangs around Big Sur, Monterey, and Pinnacles. “[Hi Mountain]’s kind of the ideal place to monitor any exchange between these two flocks,” Brandt said. “It’s nice to have folks strategically positioned so that they can do telemetry ... and that’s a big part of the way that we track condors.” Small radio transmitters with tags on them are attached to the condors’ wings, allowing people with radios to try to tune in to those telltale beeps that indicate where the birds are flying. It’s how they can detect birds in real time, Brandt said, but those locations aren’t exact—they’re more triangulated. Some condors are outfitted with GPS trackers, which pinpoint a more exact location and collect detailed information, but the data is only available when the bird is in an area with cellphone INTERPRETIVE WORK Steve Schubert went out to the Hi service.

While condors have come a long way,

the species still isn’t quite to a place where wildlife biologists feel comfortable. The population is growing at a rate that outpaces those that die each year, but the way in which scientists believe condors are dying is troubling. DDT, the legacy pesticide banned in 1972 that wreaked havoc among bird populations (including the peregrine falcon), is still around. It’s part of the water column and the food chain, accumulating more in each species as it gets eaten. DDT is affecting the central flock, Brandt said. It causes thin shells and chick mortality. Biologists’ most educated guess is that the condors get it from feeding on sea lions—which are at the top of the marine life food chain on the coast. The level of DDT that’s found in the birds, though, is dropping, Brandt said, which is promising. An even bigger issue is the number of condors that die from lead poisoning each year. The majority of condor deaths (as in, more than 50 percent) are associated with ingesting lead, Brandt said. That lead most likely comes from bullet fragments that condors eat as part of dinner, wild animals that have been shot—either from gut piles left behind by hunters or from pests like wild pigs, which are shot and left for scavengers. Those dead animals are also key to condor recovery. “Shooting of wild game plays an important part of the diet of condors,” Brandt said. “It’s definitely a part of their food base and what they’re feeding on, and we want to maintain that food source. We just don’t want to have lead; we just don’t want it to be contaminated.” California’s state Legislature passed Assembly Bill 711 in 2013, which requires the use of non-lead ammunition when taking any wildlife with a firearm in California. The law will complete its years-long phase-in on July 1, 2019. The 2013 bill was controversial, and

it polarized the issue—pitting condors and conservation against the hunting community. Non-lead ammunition was also hard to come by when the bill was first passed. Although it’s easier to find now, non-lead ammunition still isn’t as pervasive as lead ammo and it costs a little more. As part of that process, some wilderness conservation nonprofits such as the Ventana Wilderness Society started handing out non-lead ammo to hunters. “Sometimes when things are wellintended, it may also have consequences of making that conversation more polarized,” Brandt said. “I definitely see why a hunter would have [their] gripes. No one likes to be legislated against, especially when you don’t know why. That’s why outreach and education is imperative.” As part of that education, Brandt said the Fish and Wildlife Service tries to stress how essential hunting is to the condor recovery process. Fish and Wildlife continues to work on education and outreach with the hunting community about the issue, and Brandt said he feels like it’s starting to make an impact on the debate. The key is to understand that everyone’s in this conservation process together. Setting land aside for condors benefits open spaces, other species and habitats, and sometimes preserves hunting land. Lead isn’t just poisonous for condors, it affects humans and other species as well, even if it’s mere traces of lead that are being ingested. “Showing that we can recover a species from just 22, we learned a lot from doing. Condors are well-funded and we’ve invested a lot into this species, but it’s not just about condors,” Brandt said. “It’s also just benefitting our knowledge of conservation and endangered species as well.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham can be reached at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

Caltrans needs to step up A response to Vintage Wine Estates’ lawsuit blocking safety improvements at El Campo Road and Highway 101

A

lawsuit filed by a winery company put on hold the El Campo Road and Highway 101 safety improvements that were supposed to start today, May 13. It came as an unexpected and crushing disappointment to us. Vintage Wine Estates, the new parent company of Laetitia Winery, filed the lawsuit last week, blocking the construction of the safety improvements at El Campo, Tower Road (Laetitia’s entrance), and two other crossings on 101. Since our son, Cal Poly freshman Jordan Grant, was killed at the El Campo intersection on Oct. 7, 2018, when Richard Giuli made an unsafe left hand turn across 101, we have fought long and hard to obtain unanimous approvals from all government jurisdictions to eliminate these unsafe left-hand turns. Caltrans agreed to construct median barriers at El Campo, Tower, and two other crossings, as Caltrans believes any partial closure at El Campo needs to be replicated at Tower to avoid a different unsafe road condition arising—U-turns on 101 at Tower Road. Jordan’s accident happened seven weeks after Suzie Smith’s Lexus was hit there in the same way with serious and life-altering damage to her back and brain. Think about that—it was just seven weeks between those two similar accidents. That is why we take any delay, even a few weeks, caused by the Vintage

HODIN

v. Caltrans litigation as unacceptable harm to public safety. We called for a boycott as we recognized that this was an intentional business decision by Vintage to try to maintain wine tasting traffic (even though, with the expected changes, customers would still have had access to the winery. Some would just have to drive a little farther). So they intentionally chose to delay the safety improvements at El Campo as a consequence of their decision to litigate. Vintage is gambling that it can quickly negotiate a better outcome with Caltrans for its Tower Road access and protect the profits from wine tasting traffic making left turns into the winery from southbound 101. But to do so, they have taken “hostage” the safety improvements at El Campo, as Caltrans—rightly or wrongly— has all four crossings tied together. So Vintage is gambling that no one else will be injured or killed at El Campo or the other three crossings while these safety improvements are on hold. Is it OK with you that they make this gamble for several weeks (maybe months, maybe years) with your son’s or daughter’s life on 101? Gamble with your wife’s or husband’s life? Would you agree to that? We do not. That is not a reasonable and responsible exchange: potentially losing someone’s life to protect profit. Imagine if Caltrans was about to make

these safety improvements on Oct. 1, 2018, and Vintage sued on that date to put them on hold. Jordan would have been killed seven days later, while negotiations were underway between Vintage and Caltrans. So no, we do not agree. That would not be a reasonable and responsible exchange for Jordan’s life. Over the last 48 hours, I have been working with Pat Roney,Vintage Wine Estates’ CEO, and other executives and do believe them to be honorable, well-meaning people, who are excellent additions to the South County community. I like them and am working with them to achieve the midterm goal—to build a desperately needed underpass/overpass in this area within five years to meet a range of community needs, as well as Laetitia Winery’s access needs. Vintage cannot be held responsible for what the previous owners of Laetitia did in 2011. At that time, Laetitia threatened a lawsuit to prevent these same safety changes being made to Tower and El Campo roads—changes that were designed, funded, and prescribed by Caltrans engineers as necessary corrections to unsafe road conditions. Laetitia’s former owners were successful, allowing the injuries and deaths that followed, leading up to Suzie’s accident and our cherished son Jordan being killed. That was neither reasonable nor responsible. The hands of the previous owners of Laetitia are not clean in this sacrifice of public safety, of Jordan’s life, for their wine tasting traffic profits. However, I also believe that this is not what Vintage Wine Estates, the current

owner, is. While we have disagreed about the lawsuit just filed, Vintage has also expressed full support for the partial closure of El Campo and the other median crossings. We understand they want to see a different answer for Tower Road and a commitment from Caltrans for an under/overpass in the next two to five years. I respect and agree with them for the work they are doing to help achieve the goal of getting an overpass built in the next five years. What role has Caltrans played in getting to this point? Caltrans failed to fix these crossings in 2011 when it had the funding. Caltrans has continued to be obstinate in refusing to consider my suggestions for a J-curve turnaround at Tower Road to handle the U-turn concerns and to leave Laetitia unharmed by the El Campo safety changes. Even the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments staff included a J-curve in its Dec. 5, 2018, PowerPoint presentation. Caltrans refused to listen to the new owner of Laetitia, leaving Vintage Estates to believe that it had no other option but to sue to be heard. Laetitia was identified as a stakeholder in the planning document leading up to the scheduled safety changes, yet at the end of the day, was not listened to. While valuing and respecting the relationship that we’re building with Vintage executives, those of us who want public safety to be put first will continue to oppose the delay caused by the litigation. Caltrans and Vintage need to resolve this COMMENTARY continued page 15


Opinion COMMENTARY from page 14

quickly. Given what Vintage has told us, we have moderated many of our proposed activities, pending the results of upcoming meetings with Caltrans. We recognize and have a full understanding of Caltrans’ central role in creating this problem by failing to resolve Laetitia’s access issues during the planning over the last seven months and the agency’s unwillingness to enter into serious dialogue about how to plan and construct an overpass in the near term. Caltrans must come to the table with reasonable solutions quickly. At a minimum, Caltrans must immediately unbundle El Campo from Tower Road so Vintage’s litigation will no longer be applicable to El Campo, and El Campo’s safety changes can then be implemented immediately. We hope and pray that all will be quickly and cooperatively resolved in a matter of days,

People need to help and learn about animals

People need to help animals. There are so many stray animals, and we need to do something to help. One way is to spay or neuter your dog or cat. If you spay or neuter your pet, it will help other pets find a home. More pets will be able to find a home because there will be fewer animals to choose from. Another way to help is to adopt animals for the local animal shelter in your area. The main animal shelters in our area are Woods Humane Society and San Luis Obispo County Animal Services. Adopting your pet from a shelter will enable the shelter to take in more pets. You can also help by volunteering or donating your old blankets, dog collars, or bowls. Shelters might even take an old littler box. Animal shelters wouldn’t be able to run without the volunteers who are their support beam and are very important. Just imagine how fun it would be to walk dogs, give cats attention, and help people find their forever friend, all day! A way to help youth learn about animals is by joining 4-H, which teaches youth responsibility and budgeting, and motivates children to do community service. In 4-H you can raise a chicken, rabbit, pig, sheep, goat, cow, horse, or even a turkey to show at the California Mid-State Fair. Your child can learn so much through 4-H.

A lack of females in tech Did you know that most females lose interest in math, science, and technology when they hit middle school? As a female teenager, it is hard not to have other females my age participating in anything to do with math and science. Females of any age should try participating in science and technology. Locally, in San Luis Obispo, you can take classes at Cuesta College, online courses,

and a variety of summer camps (EPIC, and you can try SLO High for summer camps). Knowing how to program can be very beneficial to your future. You can get a good job, have higher paying jobs, and more. As a teenager, our brains are still growing, and it is easier to memorize how to program. As you can tell, there are many positives in getting involved in math, science, and programming. I hope female teens participate in these activities! Diana Pruett 13 years old Cayucos

Fries and friends

Cayucos Deli is one of my favorite places to eat! It is a Mexican restaurant that is connected to the gas station minimart on Cayucos Drive. My favorite item to get is asada fries. They are cheesy fries and tender steak topped with delicious guacamole, tasty sour cream, and fresh pico de gallo. This dish is enough to fill up two to three people, which is why I enjoy going there after school with my best friends. They also have Taco Tuesday, where you can get tacos for only 99 cents. They have a couple of tables and chairs to sit in and also some benches outside with a view of the ocean. I recommend that you give it a try! Alana Gann 13 years old Cayucos

Everybody wants to park in the shade but nobody wants to plant a tree

I think people should have to plant a tree every year because we are chopping down forests to make room for large and small farms and to harvest timber. It becomes land for poor farmers who don’t have anywhere else to live, grazing land for cattle, and pulp for making paper. This is terrible because most of the animals in rain forests die. It contributes to global warming, which is eventually going to end the world. As a teenager, the preservation of the planet is important to me. It should be important to you, too.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AMY HEWES

A question for our times

H

ow are you feeling these days? If you’re like me, you might glance at a news headline and immediately feel anxious, angry, furious, or fearful. You might want to withdraw, wilt in despair, and try to protect yourself by turning off another spigot of empathy. I worry that our collective angst could lead to disaster in the 2020 election because too many will sit out, having been emotionally maimed by the Trump administration—its unrelenting attacks on our best American ideals. We also can’t deny the existential dread that comes from witnessing the dying of our planet. Sorry, climate change deniers, I’m done arguing about the coming inevitability if we don’t act immediately. Instead, I’ve been thinking about how to sustain joy and energy to persist in these times, which can sometimes feel like the End of Days. Now is the moment to call upon reserves of hope to change the course of our nation and, indeed, our planet. I asked a variety of activists how they find the inspiration and courage to stay hopeful and active in fighting for the causes they believe in. I am grateful for the eloquent and thoughtful responses I received. An old friend who has spent her career fighting for environmental justice said, “I think those of us who do this work are optimists at our center, but because of my work with the Union of Concerned Scientists, I’m aware of folks all over the world who care deeply about stopping the madness and are working for solutions.” That’s something numerous people mentioned: finding inspiration in collective action and in the stories and examples of courage all around us. SLO City Councilmember Aaron Gomez told me via email that he makes it a point to learn about humans who defy the odds and live in extraordinary ways. He mentioned Desmond Tutu, Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, and Swedish schoolgirl and climate change warrior Greta Thunberg. For Gomez, these individuals illustrate the human potential to change history, and their example gives him hope that he “is part of the last generation that lives in a fashion that takes more from the planet than it gives back.” Ironically, the “gloomy reality” of environmental disaster “grants us an opportunity to really rise to the occasion and show up for life on this planet in a way that we never have before,” Gomez wrote. “Hopefully that gives people purpose. I know that it gives me a feeling of purpose.” Mothers For Peace activist Michele Flom also mentioned Thunberg, who at 15 inspired an estimated 1.4 million students in 112 countries to join her on March 15 in a school walkout to demand climate change action. “Scenarios of a grim future for our children is, for me, one of the more difficult issues to grapple with,” Flom told me, “and yet, the rising up of young people like Greta is perhaps what brings me the most hope.” If you need a boost to stay energized

16 • New Times • May 16 - May 23, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

and positive, why not make it a practice to note individuals who inspire cultural change and awareness through their own actions? Who knows, you could also step into the arena yourself in small or large ways. Terry Parry, an organizer of Women’s March SLO said, “For me, the only way to be hopeful is to get involved. “Small victories are important. They actually build on themselves and inspire people to join and cause phenomenal movement. There is a lot on the table, and more and more of us finding a way to take a stand about what we value. This is so very energizing.” The trick is to be energized, not overwhelmed. So many of us have exhausting, busy lives. You can’t solve the whole dang mess, but you can take “one small step.” Simply modeling hope helps us all! By taking that one step, we can help to revive the body politic. Another propitious idea came to the fore in my query: Sometimes, hope comes spontaneously out of the actions of yourself or others, but sustaining hope requires intentionality. Express gratitude and you will feel grateful. Jeff Nadel, local president of the CSU Employees Union, gave me personal,

practical advice on how to stay positive: “Lose the frown! Embrace your family and pets, go to the gym, say hello to everyone you meet, and connect with your own deep-seated empathy.” When opened, even a little, the spigots of empathy can begin to inspire. Paso Robles City Councilmember Maria Elena Garcia wrote in an email, “I truly wake up feeling grateful for the opportunities I have daily to help people. “The Hispanic Business Association in Paso gives scholarships to students. One recipient said, ‘Thank you. I have been working in the fields with my parents to save money to get my welding certificate.’ That comment makes all the hard work raising money worth it.” By their breath and action, all these folks suggest we not only hold to our values, we nurture our ability to empathize and find the joy of purpose. They inspire us to appreciate the opportunities we have to take action, to be grateful for our daily breath. To reelevate the best of American ideals. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action. Send comments through the editor at clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

The Shredder

Grow up, people

I

’ve been trying to paint my cardboard box since the beginning of the year, and all the rain we’ve been getting keeps washing it off. My neighbors keep complaining that the colors don’t match with the natural theme of the creek and are threatening to call the city of San Luis Obispo Architectural Review Commission. I’ll have to beg for forgiveness from the nitpicky building commission just like Stalwork Inc. did in 2017 for a paint job that didn’t fit in with the “character” of downtown—sort of. All Stalwork had to do with its gigantic, black monstrosity on the corner of Santa Rosa and Marsh streets was paint it a lighter shade—which I would call very dark grey—when it got in trouble for not asking for permission from the commission, so what’s the worst that could happen to me? Maybe I’ll be forced to fish another cardboard box out of the dumpster. I wonder which SLOcal yocal is going to complain first about the same shade of controversy that’s covering the building next door on Santa Rosa and Higuera that Stalwork just remodeled. They saw a red brick building and they had to paint it black. Maybe the city’s self-appointed cultural

adherence brigade has become numb to the outrage that is black paint on downtown buildings—it’s become the new norm, so people just, like, don’t even see it anymore. That’s definitely not the case for Cal Poly’s attempt at a “hip” new logo for the social media age. Students are not having it! They just can’t even with the hammer and quill. So much for a university trying to design something for the kids. Act your age, Cal Poly! You’re, like, more than 100 years old. Sheesh. KCPR general manager and business administrative student Archie Mitchell, penned a piece in Mustang News telling the university that it’s OK to “swallow its pride” with the logo rebrand and go back to square one. Mitchell describes the new logo as a “digital turd.” Touché. “The entire project reeks of this administration’s lack of any real desire for student input and lack of faith in the ‘Learn by Doing’ motto,” Mitchell stated in his opinion piece. Only, Cal Poly put out a survey on that crappy logo months ago, and it was really long—like 20 to 30 minutes of questions about how Poly should market itself in the future. And it included several renditions of a new logo! And it went out to everyone

with a Cal Poly email address! And those people include every single student at the university—including budding think-piece writer Mitchell. Apparently 5,000-plus students who signed Poly student Drake Murphy’s change.org petition to “stop the rebrand” didn’t bother to check their emails either. Poly, for once, actually wanted student input. Only no one was paying attention: #sad. Now petition-signing students are loudly whining about the results of that survey months later—acting as if this is the first they’ve heard of it. Geez, kids, your age is showing. It reminds me of Caltrans. Only, the controversy is a bit more real than a logo that kind of looks like it takes inspiration from the Soviet Union flag. Vintage Wine Estates, the sparkling new parent company of Laetitia Vineyard & Winery, put its Champagne-inspired stamp on the county by filing a lawsuit against Caltrans, effectively halting the agency’s better-late-then-never plans to close four intersections on Highway 101 between Arroyo Grande and Nipomo. The lawsuit accuses Caltrans Deputy Director for Planning and Local Assistance Aileen Loe of saying the decision to close the intersections was political and not based on an emergency and that the agency would “stand down” if there wasn’t so much public support. Umm, OK. Well, it’s not like this whole dangerous-intersection issue is a new thing for the agency. James and Becky Grant have been

fighting for the closure of the El Campo intersection since they lost their son to an accident in 2018, but that little stretch of South County Highway has been on Caltrans’ docket since at least 2005. In a 150-page memo from 2009 (yeah, aren’t you glad you don’t work for Caltrans?) about closing intersections along the very same stretch of highway, the agency cites a study between 2005 and 2007 that counted 188 collisions along that stretch of highway, 21 of which were at the El Campo intersection and seven were at the Laetitia Winery intersection. The memo stated that these rates “exceeded the state average” and cited the need for an overpass. Laetitia threatened a lawsuit over the proposed project—because how else are all the winos going to weave across traffic to pull safely into their driveway—and Caltrans stood down. I guess there wasn’t enough “politics” or “public support” to do anything about it. At least two people have died at El Campo since the initial project finally fizzled in 2011 and countless others have been injured. Now Vintage Wine Estates is saying it wants a guarantee that an overpass gets built in the next five years—that’s going to cost a cool $20 million to $30 million. If Laetitia hadn’t flexed its greedy little muscles in 2011, we might be halfway toward building that overpass everyone’s opining so hard for. ∆ The Shredder knows the facts are sobering sometimes.

Homecoming Righetti High School grad and Little Feat founder Bill Payne brings his famous band to the Avila Beach Blues Festival

“T

here’s something in the water around there,” Bill Payne said of the Central Coast during a recent phone interview. “That’s all I can tell you. You know [Grateful Dead lyricist] Robert Hunter was born in San Luis Obispo, right?” I did not know that, and I also didn’t know that Payne graduated from Santa Maria’s Righetti High in 1967 before he founded the world famous jam rock act Little Feat, with Lowell George, in LA in 1969. Little Feat has so many classic songs, from “Fat Man in The Bath Tub” and “Dixie Chicken” to “Spanish Moon” and “Oh Atlanta,” not to mention “Don’t Bogart That Joint,” “Time Loves a Hero,” “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now,” and dozens more. Payne, 70, is the only original member of the 50-year-old band, but most of the band members have been with Payne for decades. Paul Barrere, Sam Clayton, and Kenny Gradney joined in 1971. Fred Tackett came on board in 1988. “Newcomer” Gabe Ford joined Little Feat in 2006 as original drummer Richard Hayword’s drum tech and took over as drummer in 2010 after Hayward’s death. Payne’s as busy as ever these days. He’s an amazing photographer and writer. Check out his website to see for yourself (billpaynecreative.com). He’s written a slew of new songs with Hunter. He stays young with a wife 26 years his junior. In addition to Little Feat, he plays with the Doobie Brothers and will go on tour next

summer with Santana. In between, he enjoys the ranch life. “I live out in the middle of nowhere in Montana,” Payne said. “It’s beautiful up here, and I’ve had the ranch for 37 or 38 years, but I’ve only lived full time out here for about 10 years. I used to live in your neck of the woods. I played the Rose Garden [Ballroom] in Pismo Beach.” Had Little Feat been writing any new music? “Not technically. I’ve written 20 songs with Robert Hunter, four of which were on [Little Feat’s] Rooster Rag [2012] album, which leaves another 16 that I haven’t recorded. I’ve got a bunch more I’ve written with other people too, so I’m active with what I’m doing, which is also playing with the Doobie Brothers. It’d be nice if we could get in and record one more record with Little Feat, but I’m not sure if that’s going to take place or not.” Little Feat and the Doobie Brothers are both iconic American rock bands. Does he have a preference? “It’s all good. It’s different enough. Little Feat has more of a jam nature, and I get to sing with Little Feat—they’re my songs, as well as other people’s—and we’re starting to incorporate more of my tunes. I write complicated stuff, and we’re working more of that into our shows, but I love playing with the Doobie Bothers. I’ve known those fellows for, God, almost as long as I’ve had Little Feat. It’s a family, too.”

FIFTY YEARS ON Little Feat, with founding member Bill Payne (far right), headlines the Avila Beach Blues Festival at the Avila Beach Golf Resort on May 26.

Elton John, who’s no slouch in the piano-playing department, called Payne the best rock and blues pianist alive. Can his Little Feat bandmates keep up with his “complicated” compositions? “They can keep up, but it’s challenging, but that’s what Little Feat has always been. I don’t do it on purpose; I’m just trying to write things that accomplish what I want to do, which is part of the fun with writing with Robert Hunter, I might add. I wasn’t sure how that was going to go, and I’m sure he was in the same boat, but it turned out that we had some tall ideas on both sides. Once I said, ‘You know the music’s in the lyrics,’ and he said, ‘Yeah, but it takes a composer to draw them out.’ I thought that was pretty nice of him to say.” At this point, you’d be forgiven if you started feeling like a slacker in Payne’s presence. He seems to excel at everything.

I asked him to tell me something he’s bad at so I could feel better about myself. “My first couple of marriages,” he laughed, “but let’s stop there.” Next Sunday, May 26, Little Feat will headline the 26th annual Avila Beach Blues Festival on his band’s 50th anniversary tour. The show will also feature Eric Burdon and the Animals and harp master Charlie Musselwhite (gates at noon; show at 2 p.m.; all ages; $55 to $110 at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com). You can expect a show that gives the fans what they want. “We have some newer songs,” Payne said, “but we mostly play a lot of the classics. It’s a rich catalog of music, so we try to put in a lot of different things depending on how much time we have, what guitar changes Paul [Barrere]

It’s a two-way street. We like playing them, and we play them a little different sometimes. “I didn’t think Little Feat would still be around 50 years after Lowell [George] and I started this band,” he continued. “We thought the music would, but it’s pretty interesting and humbling to say the least, not only to have the band still be around but to have groups like Phish and others cover our material. “I’m looking forward on a personal level to coming back there and playing again,” Payne said. “I used to surf at Avila Beach when I was a kid. I played Paso about a year and a half ago with the Doobie Brothers, and oh how it’s changed. I didn’t even recognize it! But I really like that part of California. It’s beautiful.” And there’s something in our water. Drink up, Bill!

GNH Conference features Bhutanese art and live entertainment

Dancers from the Bhutanese Association of California will perform during the inaugural West Coast Gross National Happiness (GNH) Conference in SLO on Saturday, May 25. The event celebrates the Bhutanese concept of GNH, which was coined in 1972 to rival terms used to measure a country’s economy, such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Gross National Product (GNP). Instead of using monetary statistics to define a country’s success, GNH findings are based on surveys implemented to measure the happiness and wellbeing of a country’s citizens. The event includes guest speakers, including keynote Kinga Tshering, founder of the Institute of Happiness in Bhutan. Paintings from Bhutanese artists will also be on display and available for purchase during the conference. Tickets to the event are $30 and include lunch. The conference takes place at the Copeland Pavilion at French Hospital Medical Center, located at 1911 Johnson Ave., SLO. Visit ecologistics.org for more information. ∆ —Caleb Wiseblood

Former New Times staffer pens satirical Anyone Can Be President book

PHOTO COURTESY OF DAVID VIENNA

W

hile the 2016 presidential election blew Read on up the unity of the country like fireworks Anyone Can Be going off on the 4th of July, it did make President by David one thing clear to everyone: Just about anyone can Vienna is available on be president. Amazon in paperback David Vienna, author and former New Times for $16.49. For more arts editor, doesn’t remember that moment information on Vienna and his work, visit nearly three years ago when Donald J. Trump davidvienna.com. was announced the next leader of the free world because he was blackout drunk in his own sadness. But Vienna found a silver lining: As a result of that election, more and more normies who didn’t have a background in politics would start to get involved and run for office. Vienna also got a book idea out of it. Anyone Can Be President, which was released in April, is part running-for-president for dummies, part cheeky satire, and part political/comedy quiz fodder. Vienna spoke with New Times about journalism, politics, and making fun of everything. New Times: What’s your background with journalism and politics? David Vienna: My father was a lobbyist in D.C., and my mom was a reporter covering news at the Washington Post and small, community papers, so that was always our dinnertime conversation. I wrote at the Santa Maria Sun, New Times, and The Tribune. NT: Describe where you were and what you were doing and feeling the night of the 2016 presidential election? DV: I can’t because I got blackout drunk. Like a lot of the country, we were surprised and shocked. It was a terrible night. When Trump was elected it was huge steps backward. NT: What inspired you to write Anyone Can Be President? DV: Well, Trump really. That’s kind of the big, glowing racist bulb in the room. And seeing people like AOC [New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez], who didn’t have a specifically political background, that felt inspired and I thought, “Oh, if he can do it, we can do it.” There are a lot of people who took seats who down the road I think would make good presidents.

D VIENNA IMAGE COURTESY OF DAVI

#YOU2020 Yes, you too could be the next leader of the USA! Find out how in David Vienna’s book, Anyone Can Be President.

36 • New Times • May 16 - May 23, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

NT: Would you say that more people getting involved in politics is sort of the silver lining in this situation? DV: I think there was that rude awakening of, “Oh, we don’t just have to grumble about it, we can get as involved as we want and run for office.” I think it’s good that D.C. is getting shaken up.

FUNNY GUY Former New Times Arts Editor and author David Vienna blends historical facts with humor in his new book, Anyone Can Be President.

DV: I kind of feel like I’m hoping it’s that darkest-before-the-dawn thing. I feel like what’s happening right now is we’ve always been cocky as Americans about our government, and Trump is showing us where all the weak spots are. I don’t like the vitriol and the division, but I feel like that wave of civic engagement is only going to increase and that’s always a good thing.

NT: Has anyone who has read your book not picked up on it being satirical? DV: I think it’s pretty clearly a satire. The way the publisher describes it is it’s humorous nonfiction.

NT: Do you really think that anyone can be president? Should anyone be president? DV: Anyone can, yes. Not everyone should. You can’t have a government for the people, by the people if you’re going to say, “No, not these people.” I think we need to revamp the campaign process, specifically. I would love to see people going back to taking only federally offered money, and everyone has the same capped budget, and it’s low. I’m also a supporter of an IQ test because I kind of want the person running things to be the smartest person in the room. ∆

NT: What are your thoughts on the current state of the country?

Arts Writer Ryah Cooley doesn’t want to be president. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

After the untimely death of his dear mother, Monty Navarro (Jeff Salsbury, SLO Rep’s Doubt) finds out he’s eighth in line to become the Earl of Highhurst Castle. Upon learning that his late mother was disinherited over marrying his father years ago, Monty becomes incensed. He sets off down a dark path to “remove” those D’Ysquith family relations who are standing in the way to his inheritance. The conceit of the show is that every single D’Ysquith family relation is played by just one actor, so audiences get to literally see the same person die over and over again. Normally, actor Andrew Philpot tackles this challenge for PCPA with great aplomb, I’m told, but alas this particular weekend he was sick, so understudy Taylor Hart valiantly took on the task of graciously being killed multiple times in one night. Salsbury as Monty begins as a wideeyed young man seeking justice for his mother and heartbroken over his love, Sibella Halward (Emily Trask), getting married to another man. But before long, he is transformed into a cold, calculating killer looking over his shoulder, scheming to marry his distant, albeit lovely, cousin, Phoebe D’Ysquith (Skye Privat). Meanwhile, whether he’s a closeted beekeeper exposed to just one too many bees, a womanizer who happened to skate on a patch of ice that was clearly too thin, or a man just the right age for a heart attack, Hart dies hilariously and slowly each time, leaving audience members thinking to themselves, “Well, he had it coming.” ∆

UNSUSPECTING Unbeknownst to him, Asquith D’Ysquith Jr. (Andrew Philpot, right) is in line to be murdered. Philpot plays not one, not two, but eight D’Ysquith family members, all of whom die untimely deaths in PCPA’s A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.

For fans only R ob Letterman (Shark Tale, Monsters vs. Aliens, Gulliver’s Travels) directs this adventure comedy about Detective Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds), who comes to the aid of 21-year-old Tim Goodman (Justice Smith), whose detective dad, Harry, goes missing. It turns out Pikachu and Harry were former Pokémon partners, and even more amazing, only Tim can understand what Pikachu is saying. (104 min.)

The series of events that follows is pretty predictable, and while I have no doubt that kids are going to eat up all the action, it falls pretty flat for adults. There are a bunch of cute Pokémon though! Glen I didn’t really find it predictable. The switcheroo on who the real bad guy was kept me guessing. My problem was I didn’t really care. The whole underlying premise of exploiting Pokémon simply didn’t excite me because I didn’t really find much redeeming in the Pokémon. From Lucy’s Psyduck to Lt. Yoshida’s purple bulldog-looking Pokémon, whatever it was called, they seem like jerks. And what’s up with Mewtwo? Whose side is he (or she?) on and why? And why do they keep focusing on its crotch and where are its genitals? Maybe if I had more backstory I’d get it, but it all seemed surreal and unnecessarily weird. And the end is especially unfulfilling and all too easy. There were no real stakes involved. Do you think Tim finds his dad? Will their estrangement end? Will Lucy get her big break? Will the real bad guy get caught? Of course everything will work out, which is boring! I was impressed with the seamless special effects and the Ryme City set, so it was

The fact that this footage languished for 47 years before seeing the light of day is pretty amazing. I should also mention it’s a pretty rough edit, and there are a lot of moments where the camera operators struggle to get into focus. None of that matters because the most amazing element of all is Aretha’s voice. She was 29 years old, and she’d had a string of popular R&B hits such as “I Say a Little Prayer,” “A Natural Woman,” “Respect,” Chain of Fools,” “Think,” “Do Right Woman—Do Right Man,” and many more, but she decided to return to her gospel roots in performances filmed over two days. The concerts’ live recordings yielded Amazing Grace, the best selling

gospel album of all time. Watching her work with Rev. James Cleveland, a great gospel singer in his own right, the incredible music director Alexander Hamilton, the Southern California Community Choir, and members of her own band is mind-blowing. The concerts had an improvised, organic feel to them, similar to the call and response gospel sounds of black churches all over America. The difference is Aretha’s supple, nuanced, thrilling voice. It doesn’t matter if you’re religious or not, watching this film will fill you with the spirit. The close-ups on Aretha’s perspiring face, her eyes closed in solemn prayer, a serene Buddha-like glow of the divine all around her—you know you’re witnessing a kind of magic, a kind of mass hysteria, a kind of miracle. It’s also fun when the camera catches The Rolling Stones

visually arresting, but that’s not enough for me. There were a lot of kids in our screening, and they seemed happy with the film, but I couldn’t wait for it to end. If someone decides to make a film about Pogs, I’ll have the good sense to skip it! Anna I guess what I mean by predictable is that everything works out in the end far too easily. It’s like the writers hit the hour-and-a-half mark and said, “OK! Gotta wrap it up! Let’s just fix everything really quick!” Pretty lame. The word “Pokémon” is Japanese for “pocket monsters,” and they’re designed to battle, so of course you’ll run into some jerks—but people are jerks too! While Mewtwo initially looks like the bad guy, there is a lot more going on behind the scenes, and there definitely are twistyturny moments. But just like you, I didn’t care about it all that much. If you can talk an older brother or sister into taking a group of kids to the theater for this one, do it. Otherwise, this is one to stream at home or pick up at Redbox when it gets released. Reynolds is fun as Detective Pikachu, but beyond that there’s little that makes it worth watching, especially at theater prices. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

remaining Avengers reassemble and work to undo Thanos’ destructive act and restore the universe. It’s the eleventh film in the connected Marvel Universe series. This direct sequel to the events of Infinity War opens with Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), aka Hawkeye, enjoying a picnic with his family on their rural property. He helps his daughter with her archery skills, and as he turns back from responding to his wife’s call of lunchtime, the girl is gone … vanished. When he turns back to his wife and sons, they too have disappeared. It’s an emotionally resonant reminder of the stunning loss the survivors of Thanos’ act experienced. This scene is followed by other scenes introducing the various main characters and reminding viewers of their loss. This turns out to be both the film’s strength and weakness. It’s got a surprising emotional

heft for a superhero flick, but it’s also overlong and repetitive as we explore in detail the dozens of characters, their relationships and connections, their losses and reaction to those losses, and their eventual reunification and renewed fight to reverse what Thanos wrought. As I wrote in my review of Infinity War, Thanos’ act felt like a stunt. Too many of the characters who disappeared had already scheduled films and sequels coming up. It didn’t feel final, and of course it wasn’t because … wait for it … time travel! If that’s a spoiler to you, you’re obviously not a fan of the Marvel Universe because those who are know that Thanos’ destructive act cannot stand.

the team on an international tour to gain support for her ambitious global climate legislation. Levin tries to walk a fine line of mixing silly comedy with political story and so often veers into the land of the absurd. At one point, Theron is literally high on ecstasy while she tries to resolve a sudden international hostage crisis. To Long Shot’s credit, Rogen and Theron convince us with good writing and chemistry that they’re right for each other, to the dismay of her key campaign staffer, Maggie (a funny June Diane Raphael), who tries (and usually fails) to keep Charlotte focused on her presidential bid. Can Charlotte and Fred make it against all odds? That’s the tension throughout the film and what keeps us in our seats. What nearly got me out of mine was Theron’s character, whose political ambitions I found pretty unconvincing. Still, if you just go for the laughs and to see how the hell Rogen could pair with Theron, Long Shot will thoroughly entertain. Underlying the action are timely themes of sexism, media degradation, and whether authenticity can win in politics.

The film unfolds as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), aka Captain America; Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), aka The Hulk; Thor (Chris Hemsworth); Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), aka Black Widow; Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper); and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), aka Ant Man, all team up to get the Infinity Stones before Thanos has time to wipe out half the universe with them. Even though I think the filmmakers could have cut 30 minutes and had a better film, this is still kickass! Historically, the comic book realm has always been a boys’ world. In the past, even the female superheroes seemed more designed to appeal to boys rather than girls—have you noticed, for instance, that most female superheroes dress like a PG-13-rated pole dancer or dominatrix? However, both Marvel and DC seem to be trying to evolve, not just on gender issues but other social issues. For instance, when Steve Rogers attends a survivors’ group therapy session, one of the male members casually mentions his gay relationship and nothing’s made of it. It’s accepted as normal. During the pitched final battle, it’s a group of female superheroes who convene to take a stand while their male co-parts wage individual battles. Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), aka Captain Marvel, is the desperately needed tiebreaker in the final fight to the death. These moments are signs that the times they are a-changin’, and it’s a welcome change. That said, don’t leave reading this review with the idea that everything’s going to turn out perfectly for our heroes. The film has the good sense to make at least some of its stakes real, so prepare yourself for some losses. Also keep in mind, prequels are a thing, so I have no doubt that if your favorite hero meets her (or his) final demise, Marvel will find a way toward resurrection. This film is proof positive that anything, even time travel, is possible. Taking in consideration the spectacle on screen, this film is worth paying full price! (181 min.) —Glen

this rom-com about stubborn, downtrodden journalist Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen), who reunites with his first crush, beautiful, ambitious, but lonely presidential hopeful, Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron).

BLAST FROM THE and military official, Major Arnold Toht (a frightening Ronald Lacey), whose hunt for the ark parallels Jones’. With a swift pace, fantastic effects (for the era), and a touch of comedy, Raiders takes you on a wild ride that thrills, scares, spooks, endears, and makes you laugh. Ford as Jones makes for a superhero match that I don’t know has been equaled in Hollywood since. Unflappably cool (except when snakes are involved), Indy evades death like he’s swatting flies, in a hilariously dry manner. We’ll watch this character do just about anything, but Lucas and Spielberg take Raiders to the next level with an original, interesting plot; impeccably done fight sequences; and visually stunning environments. The film was shot in San Francisco, Hawaii, France, and Tunisia, and its global atmosphere greatly enhances Raiders’ legacy, in my opinion. With Hollywood continuing to push the envelope in the superhero genre—i.e., high-budget, DC Universe and Marvel Studio movies—I recommend taking a trip down memory lane to reconnect with some of our older superheroes. In some ways, the genre’s made a lot of leaps; in others, there’s still much to be learned from the past. (115 mins.) Δ —Peter Johnson

This fascinating slice of history is a bit slow and plodding, but Dench is typically watchable in the short time she’s on screen. Much of the story is flashback to young Joan (Sophie Cookson), who falls under the spell of German Jew Leo (Tom Hughes) and her friend Sonya (Tereza Srbova), who radicalize her politics. Ultimately, Joan is less enamored by Communism than she is with the fairness of a level playing field between competing ideologies. (101 min.) —Glen

TOLKIEN What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Rent it Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park Dome Karukoski (Tom of Finland, Beauty and the Bastard) directs Nicholas Hoult as John Ronald Reuel (J.R.R.) Tolkien, the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, in a biopic that unravels how Tolkien’s life experiences lead to the creation of his stories. The film does a fairly decent job balancing Tolkien’s past flashbacks and present without boring the audience with too much information. Unfortunately, it’s overly predictable. We’re introduced to a young Tolkien overcome with a fever and exhaustion in the trenches of Somme during World War l. He’s a second lieutenant on a mission to find his friend in the midst of all the chaos. In these war scenes, delirium (perhaps?) drives him to see what he believes is fire from a dragon; as the gas and smoke clear, there’s the scaly creature. On this self-proclaimed mission, he’s followed by a loyal soldier (Craig Roberts) who won’t leave his side, no matter the situation they find themselves in. Can you believe that his name is Sam? Coincidence? I think not. During the gruesome scenes of death and gigantic pools of blood, we get a glimpses of Tolkien’s childhood to early adult life before the war. After the unexpected death of his mother, Tolkien and his brother are fostered by a wealthy woman and put into a prestigious boys academy. Although Tolkien loses his mother, he never loses her knack for telling stories. He continues the tradition by telling his own stories to another orphan living in the woman’s foster home, Edith (Lily Collins), who will later become his wife. She encourages him to not only tell stories but to pursue his passion of creating his own language for these narratives—in case you were wondering

how he was inspired to come up with the Elvish languages Sindarin and Quenya. Credit to his language creation should also go to Tolkien’s professor at Oxford, but back to his teenage years. At the academy, he makes an unlikely friend with the headmaster’s son, Robert (Patrick Gibson), which leads him to make friends with two other boys. His calls this group a brotherhood, but it’s much more than that … it is—wait for it—a fellowship.

It’s an interesting look into the man behind the majestic fantasy worlds he has written for so many to enjoy. I think Karukoski and writers David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford do a good job of packing in as much of Tolkien’s life as they could in the movie time frame, but the connections made between Middle Earth and what led to it are frankly boring. For someone that was so imaginative, the writers could have been a little more whimsical about it. The greatest part about the film was Hoult’s delivery of Tolkien, an orphan with not much but the drive to be a storyteller and preserve the fellowship and love he gained in his life. While I wouldn’t say seeing this film is worth walking to the ends of Mordor over, it’s definitely worth seeing if you want a take on your favorite author’s life. Márienna. (112 min.) —Karen Garcia

Get Out!

BY KAREN GARCIA

Out in the Big Apple Exploring New York City with my sister

W

hen I was in elementary school, my sister was attending UCLA. In retrospect, it wasn’t a huge driving distance—maybe 45 minutes— but she was a young adult figuring out her next move and I was … I don’t know, playing kickball during recess. What I do remember us doing is sending each other letters on Sanrio stationary, keeping in touch as much as we could. I also remember that once she got an apartment off-campus she would pick me up on the weekends to spend the night and we would hit the town in Santa Monica and Los Angeles. It felt like I was exploring a whole other world with her. Fast forward to 2019, and my sister is married and a mother to my now 4-year-old nephew. While we get to hang out when I visit my family in Southern California, we hadn’t really had a day trip to ourselves. So we decide to make it a four-day trip to New York City during the first week of May. We stay in Midtown Manhattan near Grand Central, which is the perfect place to be because it feels like we’re in the middle of everything we want to see. Full disclosure: We don’t visit too many tourist sites because the point of the trip

SISTER NIGHT If you’re looking for a bar to go to with your girlfriends, I highly recommend the fun atmosphere of While We Were Young.

is just to spend time with each other without having to rush off to the next thing. That being said, we check out the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where my sister was very loudly told by a museum employee not to touch a piece of art that’s on display. I’m still laughing about that! We go to the New York Public Library, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, and Grand Central Terminal.

We spend most of our days exploring other areas, walking around, and taking the subway to Lower Manhattan, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, and Soho. It’s great to just spot a coffee shop, bakery, or local business that we think the other would be interested in; we sit down in the park and talk about whatever comes to mind or people watch. Although it’s only a few days, it’s nice to reconnect with my sister and pick her brain as I continue to grow as an adult. It feels like I’m 7 again and we’re grabbing lunch just before heading out on our adventure. Now, my sister’s favorite part of the trip: our dinner in Greenwich Village at Olio e Piú. I highly recommend the Fusilli e Manzo (pasta with braised beef) and meatballs. Afterward, we walk around looking for a place to grab a drink and we stumble upon While We Were Young, a restaurant and cocktail bar. It’s definitely a female-focused bar. We both get a cocktail called If You’re a Bird, I’m a Bird (yeah I know, The Notebook, it’s cute, sue me) that consists of Grey Goose La Poire, honey, lavender, pear juice, and lemon. We share some laughs with the best waitress around (but forget to ask what her name is), and then we are off to find dessert. My sister has her sights on Magnolia Bakery and their famous banana pudding. OK, it’s not your average pudding cup—it’s layers of vanilla wafers, fresh bananas, and creamy vanilla pudding. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing and not slimy the consistency of the pudding is. All in all, my sister says she’s living out

her Sex and the City fantasy of a night on the town. My favorite part was all of it—but mostly getting to have some quality time with my sister. Δ Staff writer Karen Garcia is still thinking of her next sister trip at kgarcia@ newtimesslo.com. PHOTOS BY KAREN GARCIA

Have them eat cake

PHOTOS BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

Taco Temple has more than gigantic tacos— it has gigantic slices of carrot cake, too

T

he first thing Nicole DeWolf does when she gets to work at 5 a.m. is bake eight rounds of carrot cake, which will eventually become four cakes with seven huge slices apiece—each topped by a cute little walnut. A massive bowl of cream cheese frosting sits on a gleaming metal countertop around 8 a.m., waiting to be spread between layers of cake cramjammed with carrots and walnuts. There are no raisins in this dense delicacy, thank God. Those little dried up grapes have a tendency to ruin a perfectly good slice of cake. Although the kitchen at Taco Temple was empty, save for DeWolf and chef Peter Irwin, when I arrived at the spot that used to house Margie’s Diner in SLO, it’s now bustling. Cooks move in and out of the walk-in cooler next to the dessert station where DeWolf works. Tortillas get delivered. Irwin is pulling fish out, getting it ready for the day. I know I should be here to talk tacos, but I’m not. Tacos are what this temple to overburdened shells is known for. Piled high with veggies, beautifully cooked fish, and the crunchiest mess of shoestring potatoes, tortillas struggle against the pile of food they’re meant to keep together. There’s no skimping on taco fillings in this joint. This you know. Or you should

know—and if you don’t know, get your ass down to Taco Temple for a taste (you won’t regret it). I arrived at 7:30 a.m. for cake, not tacos. And I’m leaving with a heavy slice to have for breakfast with the rest of my coffee. DeWolf’s the pastry chef at the second Taco Temple location, which held its grand opening at the beginning of May in San Luis Obispo. “Taco Temple has this crazy cult following,” DeWolf says. “It’s a beloved institution in Morro Bay, and I have a feeling that it’s going to become that in San Luis as well.” Part of that cult status is apparently reserved for carrot cake. Since they’ve opened, DeWolf says restaurant patrons have gone through up to six cakes in a night (that’s 42 slices of cake that are big enough for four people to share)—and that’s just the carrot cake, mind you. She’s also dishing up New York-style cheesecake, tres leches cake, chocolate bread pudding, and flan. “I don’t know if it will stay this way. It’s wild,” she says of how busy the restaurant has been since it opened. Right now, though, the front of the house is deserted. We sit and chat in the dimly lit restaurant, which no longer looks like the Margie’s Diner it once held. Green and blue subway tile shines behind

NEW DIGS The recently opened Taco Temple at 1575 Calle Joaquin in San Luis Obispo is the restaurant’s second location. The first is in Morro Bay.

the bar. Retro teal blue stools match the vintage industrial orange lights hanging above them. Red vinyl booths line the wall, and the tables seem to be endless. This place is big, but every time I’ve passed by it on the freeway, it’s full—both the tables you can see from Highway 101 and the parking lot. DeWolf counts herself as lucky. She says that she smiles to herself sometimes when she realizes that she is once again baking for a living. Her most recent job was at a little pharmacy in Morro Bay. “I wasn’t fulfilled in my previous job. The customers I loved—I loved the customer interaction—but I wasn’t doing what I love,” DeWolf says. “I kind of laugh that I found my way back to baking.” In 1996, DeWolf graduated from the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco with a baking and pastry arts certificate. The school helped her refine the skills that she already had, she says, because she spent a lot of time in the kitchen growing up. Basically, she was just attached to her mother’s hip, she says. “I really learned everything that I needed to know from my mom,” she says. That includes a lesson about what eats first. According to DeWolf’s mom, it’s the eyes. Her family often sat down to eat their meals, and those meals were always presented: plates, properly placed silverware, serving dishes, serving spoons. She remembers moving some of the serving utensils off the plates, and her mom telling her about why it’s important for everything on the table to be in its proper place. POPULAR CAKE This carrot cake is the top-selling dessert at Taco Temple, DeWolf says, and she’s still trying to figure out how many she needs to have at the ready for eager customers.

DRESS IT UP Taco Temple pastry chef Nicole DeWolf packs chopped walnuts onto the bottom of a freshly frosted carrot cake.

“You present food so it’s beautiful because people eat with their eyes first,” DeWolf says, adding that baking is her art form. “I was always frustrated because I couldn’t draw or paint. ... My medium is butter and sugar instead of paint or, say, clay. ... This feeds my spirit.” In culinary school, baking wasn’t on her agenda at first, DeWolf says. For six months, she was enrolled in the full chef program, where they put students through the paces in three different kitchens—including one that’s called the “hot kitchen.” As in, hot food and the hot seat. The frenetic energy surrounding her was almost too much, DeWolf says. “They’re yelling at you, ‘Vegetables!’, and I was like a deer in headlights,” she says. That’s when she turned her eye toward the softer side of things with Peter Reinhart, the first baker to win a James Beard award. He taught on the baking and pastry arts side of the school.

“He really helped me,” she says. “When he listened to what my issues were ... he said, ‘It’s not that you don’t want to be in the kitchen; it just doesn’t suit your personality.’” That personality includes a desire to take care of people, something that she feels is baked into the desserts she pulls out of the oven. She took her degree and started working for Sam’s Club as a cake decorator. Within six months, she was the cafe and bakery manager. She left there when she had a baby and took a decade off from being in the industry. Although she wasn’t employed in her preferred craft, DeWolf continued to bake cakes for weddings, birthdays, and other special occasions—always expertly decorated, of course. It was her way of taking care of people and bringing both herself and them joy. Her carrot cake was a big hit, and that’s a recipe she brought with her to Taco Temple. It’s moist and full of the veggie it’s named for, covered in decadent cream cheese frosting and packed with walnuts. The cake is soft and inviting, something you can really tuck into and savor. Giving people that feeling of home is exactly why she bakes (she considers herself more of a baker than a pastry chef). “A baker brings cozy to the table,” she says. “Baking isn’t about sadness; it’s about happiness and pleasure.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham believes that sugar is the spice of life.

WINE HISTORY On the loose: The Wine History Project is all about, well, history, obviously. This month, the project is celebrating 40 years of winemaking with

the Hank Donatoni and the Art of Zinfandel panels at Donatoni Winery in Paso Robles. Hank established Donatoni Winery in Inglewood in 1979, but began his winemaking career a decade earlier in Topanga Canyon. In 1968, Hank purchased a home there that came fully equipped with a wine cellar, two barrels of wine, and 150 grapevines. That first year, he harvested 250 pounds of grapes and produced 16 gallons of wine. In 2000, he purchased 10 acres in the Willow Creek AVA and by 2003, had built a winery production facility and tasting room at 3225 Township Road in Paso ... The 37th annual Paso Robles Wine Festival kick-starts a few days of all things Paso wine on May 16 with a selection of Winemaker Dinners at area restaurants. On May 17, select wineries will feature their library reserve, white/rosé, and futures complemented by fresh and local gourmet bites at the RESERVE Event. You could also get educated on May 18 with a winemaking seminar, or you could just go straight to the main event in Paso’s Downtown City Park for the Grand Tasting! The big event will be arranged by regions that focus on Bordeaux-style, Rhone-style, zinfandel, Burgundianstyle, and Italian varieties for your tasting pleasure (for tickets and more information, visit pasowine.com/events/ winefest/). ... You can turn that hangover into a hang-on-tight by finishing Winefest Weekend at Hearst Ranch Winery with live music (but not too loud), a glass of wine, and wood-fired pizza. Tasting room is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; music and ’zas happening from noon to 3 p.m. on May 19 (Hearst Ranch Winery is located at 7300 North River Road in Paso). ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham will celebrate wood-fired pizza any day of the week.

D INE ’N’ DISH Spam Benedict

For some reason, Spam has made its way back onto my menu. I used to think: “Mystery meat in a can? Gross.” I guess I still think that, but for some reason, I’m definitely OK with eating it now— not on the regular, mind you, just every now and again, when I’m feeling right. I guess I was feeling right a couple of Saturdays ago, sitting out on the garden patio at The Southern Station in Santa Margarita, cup of coffee in front of me, the sun on my face. Perusing the list of eggs benny options, the Green Eggs and Spam just sounded so good. Poached eggs, fried green tomatoes, and smoked Cajun Spam smothered in hollandaise sauce and perfectly perched on a soft English muffin. I did it. I took the risk, and I was not disappointed. Runny and delicious with sweet, salty meat, and the crunch of fried bread crumbs kept me feeling right until the last bite. You can get yourself a spamalicious benny for $12.75 every morning, starting at 7 a.m. The Southern Station Grill in Santa Margarita is located at 22412 El Camino Real. ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham isn’t afraid of a little mystery meat.

LegaL Notices TION California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during a marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property. 1.

The project site was previously graded with Stage 1 development. The project includes a request for a parking modification for Phase 2 development, pursuant to Land Use Ordinance Section 22.18.020.H. The proposed project is within the Commercial Retail land use category. Phase 1 is located on the northeast corner of Trilogy Parkway and Mesa Road, and Phase 2 is located east of Via Concha Road between Trilogy Parkway and Centre Point Place and north of Trilogy Parkway between Via Concha Road and Vista Tesoro Place in Woodlands Village. The site is located in the South County (Inland) Sub Area of the South County Planning Area. Also to be considered is the environmental determination. The Environmental Coordinator finds that the previously certified Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and previously certified Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (FSEIR) are adequate for the purposes of compliance with CEQA because no substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revision of the previously certified FEIR or previously certified FSEIR, no substantial changes have occurred with respect to the circumstance under which the project is undertaken which will require major revision of the previously certified FEIR or previously certified FSEIR, and no new information of substantial importance has been identified which was not known at the time that the previous FEIR and previous FSEIR were certified.

AN AMENDMENT TO AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO, AMENDING TITLE 11 (PARKS AND RECREATION), CHAPTER 11.04, SECTION 11.04.130 SKATING AND MODEL PLANES On Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 9:00 A.M., the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing and adopted ORDINANCE NO. 3387 amending Title 11 (Parks and Recreation), Chapter 11.04, Section 11.04.130 by the following roll call to wit: AYES: Supervisors Adam Hill, Lynn Compton, Bruce S. Gibson, John Peschong, and Chairperson Debbie Arnold NOES: None ABSENT: None ABSTAINING: None The amendments as contained in Ordinance No. 3387 is summarized as follows: The San Luis Obispo County Parks Ordinance with respect to skating and skateparks is outdated. Most skate parks in other jurisdictions are operated without a monitor on site. In order to meet the requirements of Health & Safety Code section 115800, the existing provisions need to address the general welfare and safety of the public, including requiring safety gear be worn while skating during the hours of operation at County parks. Updating Title 11, Chapter 11.04, Section 11.04.130 will require that skating safety equipment be worn in Los Osos skate park and other future county skate parks while skateboarding or participating in any activity in the skate parks. The amended Chapter 11.04, Section 11.04.130 clarifies and expands terms and definitions related to skateboards, skates and other wheel recreational devices used in any county park or facility. A copy of the full text of the above amendments is posted online under County Codes adopted but yet codified on the County’s website at www.slocounty.ca.gov and is also available at reproduction cost at the County ClerkRecorder’s Office. For further information: You may contact the Parks and Recreation Department at (805) 781-5930.

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.

The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. Date: 4/24/2019. All American Foreclosure Service, 1363 Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 (805) 543-7088.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Describe what you’d be like if you were already the person you’ll be five years from now. Write freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): According to humorist Dave Barry, “The method of learning Japanese recommended by experts is to be born as a Japanese baby and raised by a Japanese family, in Japan.” As you enter an intensely educational phase of your astrological cycle, I suggest you adopt a similar strategy toward learning new skills and mastering unfamiliar knowledge and absorbing fresh information. Immerse yourself in environments that will efficiently and effectively fill you with the teachings you need. A more casual, slapdash approach just won’t enable you to take thorough advantage of your current opportunities to expand your repertoire.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful,” wrote author Flannery O’Connor. I think that’s an observation worth considering. But I’ve also seen numerous exceptions to her rule. I know people who have eagerly welcomed grace into their lives even though they know that its arrival will change them forever. And amazingly, many of those people have experienced the resulting change as tonic and interesting, not primarily painful. In fact, I’ve come to believe that the act of eagerly welcoming change-inducing grace makes it more likely that the changes will be tonic and interesting. Everything I’ve just said will especially apply to you in the coming weeks.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I think it’s time for a sacred celebration: a blow-out extravaganza filled with reverence and revelry, singing and dancing, sensual delights and spiritual blessings. What is the occasion? After all these eons, your lost love has finally returned. And who exactly is your lost love? You! You are your own lost love! Having weaved and wobbled through countless adventures full of rich lessons, the missing part of you has finally wandered back. So give yourself a flurry of hugs and kisses. Start planning the jubilant hoopla. And exchange ardent vows, swearing that you’ll never be parted again.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The Louvre in Paris is the world’s biggest art museum. More than 35,000 works are on display, packed into 15 acres. If you wanted to see every piece, devoting just a minute to each, you would have to spend eight hours a day there for many weeks. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because I suspect that now would be a good time for you to treat yourself to a marathon gaze-fest of art in the Louvre—or any other museum. For that matter, it’s a favorable phase to gorge yourself on any beauty anywhere that will make your soul freer and smarter and happier. You will thrive to the degree that you absorb a profusion of grace, elegance, and loveliness.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In my astrological opinion, you now have a mandate to exercise your rights to free speech with acute vigor. It’s time to articulate all the important insights you’ve been waiting for the right moment to call to everyone’s attention. It’s time to unearth the buried truths and veiled agendas and ripening mysteries. It’s time to be the catalyst that helps your allies to realize what’s real and important, what’s fake and irrelevant. I’m not saying you should be rude, but I do encourage you to be as candid as is necessary to nudge people in the direction of authenticity.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): During summers in the far northern land of Alaska, many days have 20 hours of sunlight. Farmers take advantage of the extra photosynthesis by growing vegetables and fruits that are bigger and sweeter than crops grown farther south. During the Alaska State Fair every August, you can find prodigies like 130-pound cabbages and 65-pound cantaloupes. I suspect you’ll express a comparable fertility and productiveness during the coming weeks, Leo. You’re primed to grow and create with extra verve. So let me ask you a key question: To which part of your life do you want to dedicate that bonus power?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s time for you to reach higher and dig deeper. So don’t be a mere tinkerer nursing a lukewarm interest in mediocre stories and trivial games. Be a strategic adventurer in the service of exalted stories and meaningful games. In fact, I feel strongly that if you’re not prepared to go all the way, you shouldn’t go at all. Either give everything you’ve got or else keep it contained for now. Can you handle one further piece of strenuous advice, my dear? I think you will thrive as long as you don’t settle for business as usual or pleasure as usual. To claim the maximum vitality that’s available, you’ll need to make exceptions to at least some of your rules.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There’s a certain problem that has in my opinion occupied too much of your attention. It’s really rather trivial in the big picture of your life, and doesn’t deserve to suck up so much of your attention. I suspect you will soon see things my way, and take measures to move on from this energy sink. Then you’ll be free to focus on a more interesting and potentially productive dilemma—a twisty riddle that truly warrants your loving attention. As you work to solve it, you will reap rewards that will be useful and enduring.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Author Hélène Cixous articulated a poetically rigorous approach to love. I’ll tell you about it, since in my astrological opinion you’re entering a phase when you’ll be wise to upgrade and refine your definitions of love, even as you upgrade and refine your practice of love. Here’s Cixous: “I want to love a person freely, including all her secrets. I want to love in this person someone she doesn’t know. I want to love outside the law: without judgment. Without imposed preference. Does that mean outside morality? No. Only this: without fault. Without false, without true. I want to meet her between the words, beneath language.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author Henry Miller wrote that his master plan was “to remain what I am and to become more and more only what I am—that is, to become more miraculous.” This is an excellent strategy for your use. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to renounce any tendency you might have to compare yourself to anyone else. You’ll attract blessings as you wean yourself from imagining that you should live up to the expectations of others or follow a path that resembles theirs. So here’s my challenge: I dare you to become more and more only what you are—that is, to become more miraculous.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): London’s British Museum holds a compendium of artifacts from the civilizations of many different eras and locations. Author Jonathan Stroud writes that it’s “home to a million antiquities, several dozen of which were legitimately come by.” Why does he say that? Because so many of the museum’s antiquities were pilfered from other cultures. In accordance with current astrological omens, I invite you to fantasize about a scenario in which the British Museum’s administrators return these treasures to their original owners. When you’re done with that imaginative exercise, move on to the next one, which is to envision scenarios in which you recover the personal treasures and goodies and powers that you have been separated from over the years.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I hate it when people tell me that I should ‘get out of my comfort zone,’” writes Piscean blogger Rosespell. “I don’t even have a comfort zone. My discomfort zone is pretty much everywhere.” I have good news for Rosespell and all of you Pisceans who might be inclined to utter similar testimony. The coming weeks will feature conditions that make it far more likely than usual that you will locate or create a *real* comfort zone you can rely on. For best results, cultivate a vivid expectation that such a sweet development is indeed possible. ∆
