Arroyo Grande opts out of Central Coast Blue, barring new agreement

T

he city of Arroyo Grande will “not pay another penny” toward the Central Coast Blue water project until its demands for a shared operating agreement with Pismo Beach and Grover Beach are met. That’s what Arroyo Grande City Council members unanimously told their city manager on June 8—rejecting a May 24 letter from Pismo and Grover suggesting that the cities hold a public meeting to air out their concerns while they continue to contribute to project costs. “How much money are we going to have pay theoretically before we know if we’re going to get what we asked for?” City Councilmember Kristen Barneich asked. “As a council it was unanimous. We were pretty adamant about what we wanted.” In April, the Arroyo Grande council made two demands to its partner cities on the $85 million Central Coast Blue groundwater project: equal governance power among the cities and the formation of project management committee subject to the Brown Act. According to Arroyo Grande council members, Pismo and Grover’s offer of more meetings and negotiations over the summer did not address those demands. “I think we asked for two clear things and we got an ambiguous response,” Councilmember Jimmy Pauling said. Mayor Caren Ray Russom offered the strongest words about the rift, saying, “I haven’t heard anything tonight that makes me want to go forward.” “I almost feel like they didn’t hear us at all,” she said. “It underscored that we don’t get input.” The council’s 5-0 vote directed city staff not to expend any more money or resources on Central Coast Blue unless Pismo and Grover present a revised operating agreement that meets their

Supervisors approve formation of second advisory council in Oceano The small community of Oceano is now home to two community advisory councils, an unusual situation that some claim is an attempt to overthrow the area’s original and left-leaning council. At a meeting on June 8, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors voted to recognize the Vitality Advisory Council of Oceano, a newly formed community advisory council made up of Oceano residents and business owners that first requested approval from the board in April. The 3-2 vote, with 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson and 3rd District Supervisor Dawn OrtizLegg dissenting, came after nearly two hours of contentious public comment from community members, some who complained that the original advisory council had become deeply one-sided and unwilling to consider conservative ideas. Jonathan Rodriguez, an Oceano resident and founding member of the Vitality Advisory Council, said at the June 8 meeting that as a longtime youth pastor, he’s had the opportunity to build relationships with many Oceano families and community members, many who he said don’t feel represented by the region’s original council, the Oceano Advisory Council. “Through the past few years I’ve heard

WATER SOLUTION? Central Coast Blue, a wastewater and groundwater project in South County, continues to hang in the balance.

demands. Arroyo Grande was being asked to pay $425,000 into the project between June and October to cover permitting and consultant work, according to City Manager Whitney McDonald. Council members also asked city staff for a presentation at a future meeting outlining the city’s other options for water security. Prior to the blowup, the cities pointed to Central Coast Blue as a key solution to South County’s water issues. The project, which has been led by Pismo Beach, would inject treated wastewater into the belowground Santa Maria Valley Groundwater Basin, protecting it against seawater intrusion and drought. Groundwater currently accounts for 35 percent of Arroyo Grande’s water portfolio, with the rest coming predominantly from Lopez Lake. Pismo Beach Mayor Ed Waage and Grover Beach Mayor Jeff Lee both shared their disappointment with Arroyo Grande’s vote in June 9 statements to New Times. Waage indicated that

the tri-city partnership is all but finished. “The city of Pismo Beach is incredibly disappointed in the action of the Arroyo Grande City Council to not move forward with Central Coast Blue,” Waage’s statement read. “Our request for a public meeting of all three city councils to work through issues in a transparent manner was denied. As partner agencies, we worked in good faith and expended funds to the benefit of our collective communities. Arroyo Grande is refusing to pay their share of the costs. The water security of our region should not be an exercise in political debate. Water is essential to our future and economic vitality, and we are now in a severe drought. Pismo Beach is committed to working with our partner in Grover Beach to find solutions and ensure politics does not come before action. We will continue to pursue a sustainable and droughtresistant water future.” Δ —Peter Johnson

this small group of people say they represent Oceano, that they are the voice of Oceano, I’ve heard them say they represent the Latino and underprivileged people of Oceano,” Rodriguez said at the meeting. “Yet their message and their views do not reflect my own or the views of many of the multigenerational families that I have come to know throughout my lifetime.” The new group’s other founding members include Linda Austin, president of the Oceano Community Services District; Adam Verdin, co-owner of Old Juan’s Cantina; Marios Pougioukas, owner of the Rock and Roll Diner; Barney Foster, a recent failed candidate for the Oceano Community Services District; and resident Gina McMahon. They say members of the original Oceano Advisory Council have long failed to take the needs of Oceano’s businesses into consideration, instead advocating for the closure of the Oceano Airport and the elimination of off-roading in the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA). But other community members who spoke at the June 8 meeting pointed out that the Oceano Advisory Council has several vacant seats, which those interested could fill. Several said that while opposing views on a single council would make room for healthy debate, the creation of a second council would only sow division in the community. Arroyo Grande resident Kay Gore called the

move 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton’s “latest petty self-serving ploy” and an attempt to defund the existing council and replace it with one that supports her political agenda. “Lynn Compton,” Gore said, “have you no shame?” The Oceano Advisory Council has been meeting regularly since it was officially recognized by the Board of Supervisors in 1996. Community advisory councils don’t have any real voting power, and while most usually receive small amounts of funding from the Board of Supervisors, the board isn’t required to fund them or required to fund each council equally. In April, the Oceano Advisory Council sent a line-by-line budget request to Supervisor Compton’s office detailing funding needs through December 2022, according to chair Allene Villa. The request, which totaled $4,832, included items like office supplies, website maintenance, and a Zoom contract. The most expensive request was a one-year contract with Survey Monkey—at a cost of $2,700— for a proposed community needs assessment regarding the future of Pier Avenue. Villa said she never heard back from Compton or her office. Now she worries Compton will choose to fund projects proposed by the new council over those proposed by the Oceano Advisory Council, effectively dismantling the initial group. NEWS continued page 6

At the June 8 meeting, Compton said she had nothing to do with the formation of the Vitality Advisory Council. “I value everybody’s opinion, whether it’s pro something or against something. The problem is a lot of opinions are being drowned out right now, and you’re getting four to five people that have their opinion being represented as Oceano. And in all honesty, in my opinion, this would never being coming forward if other community members thought their voices were being heard.” Compton said that while some community advisory councils throughout SLO County choose members through various kinds of election processes, the Oceano Advisory Council does not. The new advisory council in Oceano doesn’t plan to hold member elections at this point either. A resolution passed by the SLO County Board of Supervisors in 1996 sets out the minimum requirements for an advisory council to be recognized, but it does not require that all councils have a standard election process to choose members, according to County Counsel Rita Neal. The board could standardize that process through the approval of a new or amended resolution. While Compton said she’d like to address the inconsistency among the county’s advisory councils, she shot down Supervisor Gibson’s repeated attempts to hold off on the formation of the new advisory council. “I don’t think it’s great to have two advisory councils in all honesty, and I wish— like in some of the comments people said—I wish everybody could be in one council and you could get different viewpoints. However, that’s not, with the current council, how it works,” Compton said. —Kasey Bubnash

Community raises funds for Gala after sign vandalism

At the onset of Pride month, Gala Pride and Diversity Center’s office sign was stolen and discriminatory documents were left on its front door. Someone ripped down Gala’s sign between May 30 and June 2, and the papers were discovered on June 5. In response to both actions, community and partnering organizations showed their support for Gala. Declan Galli is a member of the Central Coast Pride Organizing Committee and a sophomore at Cal Poly. He said the committee was having a small meeting at the Gala Pride and Diversity Center on June 5 when two committee members noticed two pieces of paper taped to the front door of the office. Someone handwrote the words “public knowledge notice” on the papers, and the printed text suggested a connection between being LGBTQ-plus and mental illness. Galli’s initial reaction was disgust. “It was definitely scary to hear and see in the moment,” Galli said. “I think the message is just trying to terrorize and scare our community and really kind of be a power play.” Galli and a couple of friends took it upon themselves to organize a vigil in solidarity with Gala and the LGBTQ-plus community the following day, June 6, called, “We are here, we are queer.” “We really wanted to show that there is power in the LGBTQ community here,

and we’re in this community,” he said. The other goal of the vigil was to show those who aren’t necessarily out about their gender or sexuality or who are living through stages of their comingout experience that there are people who support and love them. Vigil participants decorated the sidewalk in front of the Gala center with colorful chalk art and messages of love and support. Gala, Cal Poly’s Pride Center, and LGBTQ Campus Life all played pivotal roles in making Bay Area-native Galli feel at home in the city of SLO. “There’s a lot of homophobia that exists in this county compared to the Bay Area or Los Angeles, but the Gala Center and the queer community in general are really strong in SLO County, so that’s been really great for me to see and makes me feel welcomed,” he said. Gala Executive Director Michelle Call said the organization reported both incidents to their San Luis Obispo Police Department liaison. Call said the department is documenting the incidents in case the actions escalate. New Times reached out to the San Luis Obispo Police Department for comment but did not hear back before press time. Gala’s $684 office sign was less than two months old before it was stolen. Since then, the community has donated nearly $6,000 to the organization, $1,500 of it coming from Skipper’s Brew Coffee House in San Luis Obispo. Coffee house owners Karen and Shari Rubino said they made a choice to donate one day’s worth of sales to Gala because the center has supported their business and they are part of the community affected by the vandalism. “We are all a part of the SLO community and need to have each other’s backs,” they said. Call said the donations will go toward a new sign and safety measures that include security cameras and outdoor lighting. Gala also noted that it received support from its community partners Bend the Arc: Jewish Action San Luis Obispo and yak tityu tityu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash Tribe chair Mona Tucker. “I think this is a ‘can’t stop, won’t stop’ situation. We know that we need to support people and we know discrimination still occurs,” Call said. “People need protection, they need community, and they need Pride month.” “I honestly feel like our profile is up because we just did our Pride activities, it’s Pride month, and we have become more visible in the community over the last several years,” Call added. Gala encourages anyone impacted by the incidents to reach out to get support. “We’re here, and we’re not going anywhere. We have your back, and I think we’re a safe space, we intend to continue being a safe space,” she said. —Karen Garcia

SLO County clerk’s departure raises concerns about replacement

San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong’s resignation announcement on June 4 drew public outcry and concern about the fate of the county’s nonpartisan election office. Gong, the elected clerk-recorder since 2015, is leaving for a deputy clerk position in Contra Costa County. His last day in SLO County will be July 2.

6 • New Times • June 10 - June 17, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

His exit comes just a month after dozens of Republican Party members criticized Gong’s handling of the November 2020 election, echoing unsubstantiated fraud allegations by former President Donald Trump, with one citizen musing that Gong, who’s Asian American, may belong to the Chinese Communist Party. Gong said in a June 4 press release that his new job will bring him closer to his elderly parents in the Bay Area, but he later told the The Tribune that the accusations and racist remark “probably played a factor” in the decision. Several SLO County residents called in to the SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting on June 9 to chastise the local party and the two supervisors who have yet to speak out against the attack against Gong and the election—4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton and 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold. The remaining three supervisors, including conservative 1st District Supervisor John Peschong, condemned the racist comment and defended Gong’s work. Commenters on June 9 demanded that the SLO County Board of Supervisors appoint a nonpartisan official to take Gong’s post. “Tommy Gong was run off and we don’t want any more of that nefarious, ugly behavior,” said Darlene Tunney of Shell Beach. “We want [a] nonpartisan [replacement], and we are watching.” According to 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson, the Board of Supervisors is responsible for appointing a new interim clerk-recorder in “a reasonable amount of time.” Until then, Gong’s duties will fall to the office’s two deputy clerks. “I think it’s better we do appoint somebody,” Gibson said. “I know both our deputies are highly capable.” Gibson said that he expects the board to discuss the position at its June 22 meeting. He added that the public is right to be concerned about who gets appointed to the post. “We have two supervisors who still refuse to speak up in defense of Tommy and the integrity of our election. We have three supervisors who have proposed changes to our legislative platform to advocate for things that are clearly voter suppression. I think there’s a reasonable question,” Gibson said. Gong’s departure leaves a leadership vacuum in the clerk’s office at a challenging juncture for California election administrators, according to former SLO County Clerk-Recorder Julie Rodewald. With a governor recall election coming this fall, and redistricting and two elections looming in 2022, county election offices have challenging, complex tasks ahead. “There’s never a good time [to lose a clerk], but there are some pretty critical projects coming up,” Rodewald said. “Knowing the deputies and other people in the clerk-recorder’s office, I’m confident they’ll rise to the challenge. Rodewald underscored the importance of having an “extremely nonpartisan” election official in SLO County, and added that this community had that in Gong. “It’s disappointing to see those kinds of attacks that I think were unwarranted,” she said. “It’s unfortunately not isolated to our county. It’s happening all over the U.S. It really strikes home when you see it happen to people you know, knowing how hard the employees and the county clerkrecorder work.” —Peter Johnson

Arroyo Grande to help fund study of Oceano Dunes

Arroyo Grande plans to contribute a small amount of funding to another effort to assess the economic impacts of off-roading in the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA). On June 7, Arroyo Grande City Council voted 4-1 to allocate $5,000 worth of unexpended consultant services funds to the Oceano Dunes Economic Impact Assessment, a project that Visit SLO CAL and the South County Chambers of Commerce launched earlier this year, just as the California Coastal Commission voted to ban off-roading in the dunes. The study, according to Visit SLO CAL President and CEO Chuck Davison, will be conducted by a hired third party that will assess the Oceano Dunes District and the “indirect and induced” profits it brings to neighboring communities, San Luis Obispo County, and the California State Parks system. It will also attempt to identify feasible strategies to mitigate losses amid the elimination of vehicle access in the park, and potential opportunities to repurpose the park in ways that could be beneficial to the economies of surrounding communities. “What we do know is change is in fact coming. What that looks like we’re all a bit unclear on, but change is coming,” Davison said at the meeting. “And so the focus of this study is really on how we mitigate that change as a successful outcome for our communities.” Councilmember Kristen Barneich, who voted against Arroyo Grande’s contribution to the effort, said she feared that supporting a study headed by two organizations that previously supported at least some off-roading access in the dunes could appear biased. She also noted that community members have written off numerous similar studies as unreliable. Visit SLO CAL, Davison responded, is doing everything it can to ensure this study will provide an accurate look at the situation. “To your point, previous studies have been done around the dunes—those studies have been done in silos and have not been widely accepted by the community,” he said. “We are working right now to build a coalition of those on all sides of this issue, to help inform the outcome and really achieve communitywide buy in, in advance of beginning that work.” Councilmember Lan George said that while Visit SLO CAL and the South County Chambers may have publicly supported off-roading in the dunes, she trusts their commitments to doing whatever necessary to help the Central Coast thrive economically. “I see that we need to plan for the future and no matter the outcome of the Coastal Commission’s decision of the lawsuits that are pending, knowledge is power. So the more information we have the better suited we’ll be to pivot,” George said. —Kasey Bubnash

Morro Bay rejects second appeal of proposed rehab facility

During a June 8 Morro Bay City Council meeting, Mayor John Headding said that an appeal of the project that NEWS continued page 7


News NEWS from page 6

proposes to convert a motel into drug and alcohol rehabilitation housing is complex. He acknowledged the community’s concerns but said it’s not the City Council’s job to legally determine “what’s appropriate or inappropriate” if a project complies with the city’s zoning and land use codes. The council unanimously voted to reject the second appeal of the project during the June 8 meeting. Ashley Smith, a concerned resident and parent, appealed the Morro Bay Planning Commission’s April 20 decision to deny her initial appeal of the project. Although Smith authored both appeals, they are supported by many community members who voiced their concerns via email and public comment during the appeals process. During public comment on June 8, Morro Bay resident Dave Smith (no relation to Ashley Smith) said he had listened to both appeal hearings and urged the council to put restrictions on the facility if it couldn’t outright reject the project. “The minute they don’t have supervision in the evenings for their clients they can be out in the community. There needs to be penalties in place if they are outside of the facility … that is endangering the community,” Dave said. In her first appeal, Smith argued that the permit did not adequately address the facility’s impact on public safety, business, and tourism. Her second appeal stated the city’s staff and planning

commission failed to research or provide documentation “that an analysis was completed on all five circumstances in which a city can deny this permit as outlined in the Housing Accountability Act.” Smith’s appeal demanded the city investigate a list of facilities that are believed to be affiliated with the applicant or operator of the permit to provide evidence that the proposed facility will not have adverse impacts on the Morro Bay community. It also demanded the project applicant provide a list of state Department of Health Care Services license-related documents and that the hearing be held in person on a day other than the regularly scheduled council meetings—the city is not holding inperson council meetings per COVID-19 safety protocols. City staff suggested the council reject the appeal, citing the Housing Accountability Act, which states that if a housing project complies with the city’s zoning code and its general plan and there isn’t tangible evidence of harm, then the project has to be approved. Anecdotal concerns and public comments from residents are not seen as tangible evidence. If the council were to approve the appeal based on the community’s input, it could be viewed as discriminatory and the city could be subject to a lawsuit. This is the same reasoning the Planning Commission used to reject the first appeal. ∆ —Karen Garcia

Collaborations between breweries and pop-ups create opportunities

n January 2020, Brendan Gough opened the doors to his brewery and tasting room, Liquid Gravity, on Clarion Court in a small industrial neighborhood in San Luis Obispo. The veteran brewer, who worked for Central Coast Brewing and Firestone Walker Brewing Company, wanted a creative outlet to explore different hop varieties, malts, and ingredients, as well as establish a rotating list of new brews. “Getting my own brewery and opening my own spot was my opportunity to just continue on that path and try to find new things,” he said. Shortly after he opened, the COVID-19 pandemic forced local businesses to pivot if they wanted to continue operating in some capacity. Liquid Gravity’s initial business model was to sell beer on draft and in kegs with canned beer sold out of the tasting room. With pandemic regulations, Gough and his team switched to canning almost all their beer. “The stakes were pretty high. I mean it was literally the survival of our business,” Gough said. Several months later, breweries were allowed to welcome guests for outdoor seating, but customers were required to purchase food along with their beverages. The brewery established a consistent lineup of vendors from Wednesday through Sunday, something that many local breweries and tasting rooms did during the pandemic and hope to continue into the future.

Taco dreams

On a busy Friday night at Liquid Gravity, Crescencio Hernandez Villar hovered over the grill cooking up chicken adobo, ahi tuna, or cauliflower in mole verde to be served in fresh handmade tortillas. His partner, Pedro Arias Lopez, took orders and handed out tacos. Their venture, Corazon 805, started as a catering company about three years ago and morphed into a pop-up food vendor. Hernandez Villar and Arias Lopez met at Big Sky Cafe, dreaming of a stand at San Luis Obispo’s Thursday night farmers’ market. It wasn’t allowed at the

ORDER UP David Jang’s love of food translated to creating a pop-up serving smash burgers to help a local business.

time because they didn’t have a brick-andmortar establishment or a commercial kitchen to work out of. But that didn’t stop them from coming up with new recipes that incorporated flavors from their native states of Guerrero and Chiapas, Mexico. Big Sky Cafe and Novo, where Arias Lopez and Hernandez Villar work, respectively, allowed the two to use their kitchens to prep and purchase ingredients from their suppliers. That support allowed them to form a partnership with Liquid Gravity to provide tacos and tostadas to hungry beer drinkers before and during the pandemic. Hernandez Villar said working with the brewery has really helped get their name out there. He said that they focus on making food for happy customers who will tell others about them. “Every time we’re making food, we’re doing it with passion, with love, with corazon,” Hernandez Villar said. Arias Lopez said the opportunity opened the door to working with other tasting rooms, including There Does Not Exist, Wolff Winery, and Broad Street Public House. They both agree that if they didn’t have this opportunity, getting their name out there would have taken a lot more time. They also credit Arias Lopez’s wife, Sara McGrath, who helms their Instagram account where followers can see their Friday night offerings or where their next pop-up will be.

Where beer exists

Max Montgomery opened his spot, There Does Not Exist, in September of 2019 with a solid focus on beer. Before that, Montgomery was a brewer at Firestone for about six years with no intention of leaving. “In my opinion, to this day it’s still the gold standard. I love that place,” he said. However, Montgomery had a once-in-alifetime opportunity to establish his own brewery, and he felt that if he didn’t take it he might regret it one day. So he took a leap and created a tap list of sessionable brews that have lower alcoholcontent. Montgomery’s beers almost never have higher than 6 percent alcohol content. When the local stay-at-home orders went into effect, similar to Liquid Gravity, There Does Not Exist switched to canning beer, selling it out of the tasting room, and home delivery. There Does Not Exist didn’t immediately jump into welcoming outdoor guests with food offerings because Montgomery said they wanted to talk with their staff first and figure things out. It was also challenging finding food purveyors because they were a hot commodity, and the brewery didn’t have relationships with food vendors yet. Although the brewery occasionally booked a food truck pre-pandemic, it was sporadic. “Now, it’s certainly got my wheels spinning about bringing in permanent food,” Montgomery said. He isn’t sure whether food offerings in the future will be from vendors or a commercial kitchen of his own, but he’s happy with the relationships he’s made with food vendors during the pandemic. More importantly, though, he’s happy to have people back in the tasting room.

Burger ventures The Hot Meat Society was one of the first vendors to pop up regularly at There Does Not Exist during the pandemic. David Jang and his best friends, Kyle Genevay and Deryk Izuo, cooked up smash burgers that Jang described as a simple cheeseburger that evokes nostalgia and mouth-watering flavors with every bite. That nostalgia is important to Jang, whose family served classic American food in their restaurant. Jang, who’s Korean American, said it was an interesting mix of coming from an immigrant family that ate traditional Korean food at home but served cheeseburgers and BLTs at the restaurant— “The best of both worlds,” he said. Jang came to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly and stuck around to start his career as a full-time art director. During that time till now, Jang has held roommate dinners, where he pairs food with an emotional connection. “A lot of my food memories are from my grandma, my mom, and my aunts,” Jang said. “Whenever we ate, it was always a family moment. There was always an experience that goes with it.” Jang started frequenting There Does Not Exist when it opened and became a friend of Montgomery’s. He often joked with Montgomery about barbecuing for the brewery’s customers. When the brewery was ready to host food vendors, Montgomery asked Jang to be a pop-up, and Jang was ready to help support a local business and a friend. Hot Meat Society served up burgers almost every weekend, but once Jang saw that Montgomery was getting other vendors lined up, he took a step back. “I felt bad taking that away from people who are really doing this to survive. So I spoke to [Montgomery] and said, ‘Hey I think right now the good call is to allow this platform to be available for other vendors to serve food and make money,” he said. Hot Meat Society hasn’t served smash burgers since December save for one day on June 5, 2021, when it made a guest appearance at There Does Not Exist. Jang says it was a one-time thing, but he’s glad to have had the opportunity to make food for the public. Eventually, he knows he’ll do it again. “Whether it’s a food truck or a restaurant, that’s something I have to do in my life,” he said. “Right now it’s the chapter in my life that is working here, but, you know, the end goal is really to go back to my roots and what I love.” Δ Staff Writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

Boutique family winery MEA Wine opens its first tasting room in Atascadero

W

hen Atascadero resident John Merrick first planted a small vineyard on his west Paso Robles ranch a decade ago, he didn’t do it as a business venture necessarily, but as a creative outlet for his own experiments. “It was really about exploring,” said Merrick, who’s an architect. “I’ve always been sort of a scientist in a way.” Without knowing it at the time, Merrick was planting the vines for what would eventually become MEA Wine, his boutique winery that he now operates with his wife, Daniela Medrano, a longtime local whose mother owned the popular Mexican restaurant in Atascadero, Salsitas. Last month, after several years of preparation, the couple opened MEA Wine’s first tasting room on Traffic Way, which also houses the winery, and is a mere six blocks away from their Atascadero home. “By 2017, I was ready to bottle some wine for commercial sale, but we were still looking for a place to move into,” Merrick explained. “When this property became available, it was perfect for us because it’s very close to home.” MEA Wine is a true family venture. Merrick is the winemaker while Medrano runs the business side as a former accountant and controller. Their three boys—ages 10, 12, and 16—also contribute. “Our 10-year-old is a hard, diligent worker. He loves power-washing,” Medrano said with a laugh. Their 12-year-old is also making creative contributions. His artwork—a painting of a sunflower bursting with color—is featured on MEA’s latest chardonnay label, which is set for release this month. “We were painting Mason jars one day over COVID, and we really liked one of his pieces,” Medrano said. Speaking about his winemaking approach, Merrick said he has a particular interest and passion for white wine, especially for working with lesser-

known grape varietals “that are just being discovered.” His four estate wines right now are a 2019 vermentino, a 2019 albariño, a 2020 vermentino/albariño bend, and a 2018 syrah/tempranillo blend. “I’ve gotten to know and love making white wine. I really enjoy making them,” he said. “The grapes I like working with are maybe some of the lesser-known grapes. It’s a broader spectrum of grape varieties then the standard focus.” Merrick said that those interests were inspired by his experiences tasting various wines from around the world— and wondering how they’d do here in Open for SLO County. “I wanted to tasting explore not only MEA Wine recently what those were like opened its first tasting in my area, but what room at 4405 Traffic are the different Way in Atascadero. It is open Thursday through styles or directions Sunday, starting at that I can take 1 p.m. each day. them,” he said.

Medrano said that their dog- and kidfriendly tasting room keeps a “relaxed, causal atmosphere,” where visitors can meet the winemaker and engage in a direct and intimate experience. The room itself has numerous personal touches in it—Merrick used his architectural expertise to handcraft the tasting bar out of barrel racks and reclaimed wood, and Medrano sells local art pieces out of the “bright, fun, painted” space. “Everything is kind of done in that fashion,” Merrick said. “Our vision and handiwork is evident everywhere.” With COVID-19 restrictions finally easing on wineries, the couple said their years-in-the-making venture now seems perfectly timed. MEA Wine is open Thursday through Sunday, for both reservations and walk-ups, starting at 1 p.m. each day. “When I first purchased property here, I think in the back of my mind the whole time I had a desire to be in the wine industry, and not just live in it,” Merrick reflected. “It just took a long time for that gestation to occur. It’s been going very well.” Δ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

ven with its renowned creekside dining space, Novo Lounge and Restaurant struggled to make up for around 20 tables that were lost to indoor dining and capacity restrictions launched at the height of the pandemic. Fewer tables meant fewer customers, and that quickly led to a lot less revenue. So when the city of San Luis Obispo rolled out a program in July of last year that allowed restaurants to build dining areas in public street parking spots, in parking lots, on sidewalks, and in alleyways, Novo jumped at the chance. Samantha Welch—director of operations at Blue Mango Restaurant Management Services, the group that operates Novo, Luna Red, and a few other San Luis Obispo County restaurants—said Novo almost immediately applied for an Open SLO encroachment permit, which the city is still giving out free of charge to businesses hoping to operate outdoors due to COVID-19. The city helped Novo install a standard parklet, which Welch said spans two street parking spaces and includes flooring, railings, and, most importantly, around eight additional tables. “I’m grateful to the city for making the changes that they did,” Welch said, “and for us it’s been super beneficial.” Novo put some of its own money into the parklet too, enclosing it in lattice fencing for a little extra security from passing traffic, stringing up lights, adding some potted plants, and hauling out umbrellas and propane heaters whenever necessary. But—unlike restaurants such as Eureka!, which has everything from Plexiglas barriers between tables to roofing on its parklet— Welch said Novo refrained from putting too much into the potentially temporary space. Although Welch said she loves the bustling atmosphere parklets create downtown, it’s still not clear whether they’re here to stay. “But if it were something that became a full-time thing then we’d absolutely invest further into it,” she said. As Californians become increasingly vaccinated and COVID-19 restrictions ease, cities and business owners throughout the Central Coast are trying to figure out what to do with pandemicera outdoor dining spaces. Although parklets helped resolve a number of pandemic-specific problems, city officials say they also create others, including reduced parking capacity, accessibility issues, and intensified needs for already hard to find restaurant employees. In the city of SLO alone, 38 businesses have parklets in street parking spots, around 10 are using sidewalk space for outdoor dining, and another handful are still using private parking lots for operations, according to Transportation Manager Luke Schwartz.

The city also removed a lane of traffic on Higuera Street and replaced it with a bike lane, and made the last stretch of Monterey Street going into Mission Plaza a one-way street, making room for street dining outside Giuseppe’s and Finney’s. Other outdoor spaces, like Mission Plaza or private parking lots across the city, became new hubs for dining. But, Schwartz said, none of that was intended to be permanent. “It’s been a real noticeable challenge to our parking division,” he said. The city is missing more than 60 public parking spots due to parklet dining, Schwartz said, at an estimated cost of around $230,000 in lost parking meter revenue each year. SLO allocated about $600,000 in general and CARES Act funds to the Open SLO program, through which the city constructed parklets, made modifications to Monterey Street, and created public health signage. There are also additional city maintenance costs associated with outdoor dining that aren’t fully captured in that $600,000, Schwartz said. One way the city could offset some of those costs, he said, is through the creation of an annual parklet permit fee. Businesses are already required to get Open SLO encroachment permits and insurance before building parklets, but, as of now, the permits themselves are free. SLO City Council is slated to discuss that possibility and others at a public study session on outdoor dining on July 20, where Schwartz said members will consider making parklets and other features of the city’s pandemic response permanent fixtures. SLO also just launched a survey regarding outdoor dining, with the hopes of getting input from community members and business owners before the July study session. A decision has to be made before the end of this year, when SLO’s relaxed outdoor dining and parking measures are set to expire. Cities throughout SLO County are grappling with similar considerations. In Grover Beach—where roughly 22 businesses have obtained temporary use permits for expanded outdoor dining on sidewalks and in parking lots, and only two have streetside parklets—City Council expressed interest in permanently relaxing its minimum parking requirements at a meeting on May 24. Still, several council members said they were concerned about the proximity of street parklets to fast moving traffic and lacking disability accessibility on sidewalks where restaurants have set up expanded dining areas. Pismo Beach City Manager Jim Lewis

said his city has lost an estimated $200,000 in parking fee revenue due to its six parklets downtown. But, more importantly, he said, the loss of those parking spots also equates to more difficulties accessing the coast, which is generally considered a big no-no for cities in the coastal zone. Lewis said city staff are still researching whether permanent parklets would violate coastal zone regulations. Santa Maria city staff are dealing with different needs entirely. Chuen Ng, director of Community Development, said Santa Maria’s streets just aren’t set up for the kinds of parklets that have become so popular in downtown SLO. Both of Santa Maria’s core streets, Main Street and Broadway, are owned and maintained by Caltrans, which Ng said would have had to approve any parklets or other expanded dining options at restaurants on either of those streets. So while there are a few restaurants in town with tables and chairs set up on sidewalks, Ng said there aren’t any street parklets. The rest set up dining spaces in their private parking lots, which are allowed through relaxations to zoning regulations that Santa Maria passed in May 2020 in response to COVID-19. Ng said he’s hearing mostly from business owners who want to keep the banners and temporary signs advertising their hours of operation and services available. Businesses aren’t normally allowed to have temporary banners unless there are specific circumstances, Ng said, because the city wants to encourage businesses to invest in permanent signs. That rule was relaxed in response to COVID-19 too, and Ng said businesses want it to stay that way. “I think as the pandemic winds down we’ll need to reengage with the business community and talk about whether we’ll continue those accommodations into the future or not,” he said. There’s no specific end date for Santa Maria’s signage or outdoor dining rules, and Ng said staff haven’t formally discussed how they’ll move forward. But he said it’s likely that some allowances from the pandemic could carry over into the future, including outdoor dining. “We’re open to the idea because it allows for greater visibility for the businesses but also opportunities for our customers to enjoy a meal outside,” Ng said. “And we have great weather on the Central Coast, so why not take advantage of it?” Δ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

BOOKS GALORE Local readers will be welcomed back inside all of their 14 SLO County libraries, including the downtown SLO branch (pictured) on June 22, after more than 15 months of full or partial closure due to COVID-19 safety precautions.

BY PETER JOHNSON

Open book W hen the COVID-19 pandemic hit San Luis Obispo County last March, local resident Erica Thatcher suddenly had a new job. She went from being the engagement and marketing coordinator for the SLO County Library to delivering groceries to homebound seniors. Thatcher joined dozens of library workers who got reassigned to the SLO County emergency pandemic response team in March 2020, as the 14 local library branches—and seemingly all of society—shut down. For the better part of the past 15 months, 70 to 80 percent of the library department has dedicated its time and energy to assisting with COVID-19 call centers, home deliveries, testing sites, vaccine clinics, and other pandemic-related duties. “At first it was scary. We were all asked to do something outside our comfort zones and job descriptions,” Thatcher said. “We were trying to put together programs that didn’t exist before. But I do feel like it was rewarding, and a lot of staff have expressed the same feelings. You’re part of a bigger picture and you’re getting services to people who need them the most.” Now, as the pandemic is subsiding locally and statewide, the SLO County library staff is finally getting to refocus on its original mission. And the public is getting its libraries back. Starting Tuesday, June 22, all 14 SLO County library branches will reopen to the public. Half had been closed since March 2020, including the Cayucos, Oceano, Shandon, Creston, San Miguel, Santa Margarita, and Shell Beach branches. “We missed our people,” Thatcher said. In the reopening announcement, SLO County said that all its branches would be “fully open” on June 22, with book browsing, holds and pickups, and computers available at the smaller branches. The timing aligns with California’s full reopening date of June 15, when the state is expected to lift most pandemic-era restrictions. The library is still encouraging social distancing by arranging its indoor furniture 6 feet apart and is asking unvaccinated visitors to wear face masks inside. Thatcher said she knows that the community missed its libraries over the past 15 months and that it was tough for the public to lose access to them. “We did get a lot of folks who were very vocal about missing library services. A lot of them wrote to the administration and

really pushed to reopen,” she said. “It was difficult.” The 20 to 30 percent of the department employees who stayed in library services during COVID-19 continued to work tirelessly to serve the community, Thatcher said, coordinating book dropoffs/pickups and digital programming “Staff was really making sure our digital collections and e-books were robust and accessible,” she said. “I think we all feel a lot of pride in what we’ve done and what we’re doing. We’re looking forward to bringing back our services in a bigger and better way and welcoming everybody back.” With June 22 quickly approaching, Thatcher said she and her colleagues can’t wait to see the community again face-to-face. “Come back,” she said. “We’re here and we missed you.”

Anyone who donates $20 or more to Kyndal’s treatment fund on Facebook (facebook.com/donate/538719990460541) is eligible for a free burger—just show proof of the donation at the register with an ID. Sylvester’s has three locations: Atascadero, Oceano, and Los Osos. • The first tenant at the SLO Public Market is set to open its doors this month. Orangetheory, a fitness gym, is opening on June 26 and will offer running classes that morning and a “come-and-go event” in the afternoon to give the public a chance to tour the studio, according to a press release. The gym is also offering “founding member rates” to new customers, for a limited time only. Over the next few months, more tenants at the SLO Public Market on Tank Farm Road and South Higuera are expected to open, and some will be present on June 26 to share samples, goodie bags, and more. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson wrote this week’s Strokes and Plugs.

Elections aren’t unhackable We shouldn’t be afraid to look more closely at how we vote

I

have had a hard time comprehending that there is something wrong with wanting, even demanding, that elections be transparent and open for examination. We as taxpayers purchased the equipment, we pay for the office space, we pay the people who work in those spaces. As taxpayers, we certainly should have access to every aspect of the election process. Let’s be honest, there is a plethora of ways to cheat in an election. Cheating happens at all levels. What makes us think that it doesn’t happen in our elections? A mother in Pensacola, Florida, hacked the school computers to change the votes so that her daughter would win homecoming queen. What we have at stake is far greater than a high school prom. Let’s not be so naive to think that cheating never happens or that our election process is free from tampering. An article written by Alfred Ng on Feb. 18, 2020, explained how an up-andcoming product, made by Microsoft named ElectionGuard, was addressing the crucial concern in U.S. democracy: the integrity of the vote. The article stated, “With ElectionGuard, Microsoft isn’t setting out to create an unhackable vote—no one thinks that possible—but rather a vote in which hacks would be quickly noticed.” In 2017, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota) voiced her concerns stating, “Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy. It is clear that a foreign adversary attempted to

undermine our election, and now we are learning that as many as 39 states may have been hit by Russian hackers.” In “Electoral System in Crisis,” written on July 25, 2016, “The portrait of an electoral system in crisis is further supported by reports from election integrity organizations, media outlets, and individuals on social media that voting is increasingly taking place in a corrupt environment. This contextual evidence of voters purged from the rolls, registrations lost in the mail, party registrations being changed without a voter’s knowledge or intent, voters being sent incorrect ballots, a shortage of ballots, polling places being closed, discouragingly long lines in targeted precincts and states, and disturbingly large disparities between initial exit polls and official results, lends credence to the argument that if one form of fraud is already in play, another form of fraud is more plausible.” Voter integrity is a dynamic and complex issue, but if we are to have confidence in the votes we cast, then this issue must be addressed. I applaud our three Board of Supervisors members who were willing to acknowledge the issue of election integrity. It is time to be good stewards of our voting process. It is time for us to face the possibility of election interference and fraud. Let’s not be afraid to take a closer look behind the curtain. We as taxpayers deserve complete transparency.

Letters Thanks for your service, Tommy Gong The League of Women Voters wishes to thank SLO County ClerkRecorder Tommy Gong for his many years of service to the voters of San Luis Obispo County. We will miss him. He and his staff have done an exemplary job securing and processing our votes, particularly during the demanding 2020 elections. Last year’s elections were conducted in a safe, fair, and secure manner, resulting in a record turnout. It is unfortunate that uninformed, even abusive, comments and misinformation have taken center stage and put San Luis Obispo County in the national news in a negative way. Elections are the cornerstone of our democracy, and it is critical that elections and the office of county clerkrecorder are approached in a professional and non-partisan manner. We would hope that the SLO County Board of Supervisors realizes the importance of this. We will be closely following how the board moves forward with filling the opening in this vital elected office. Cindy Marie Absey Ann Havlik co-presidents League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County

EMP threat is real Bree Turner’s rebuttal (“Calm down,” May 27) to my May 20 column “Testing

Biden” displays the hubris of engineers who build nuclear plants in a tsunami inundation zone while assuring the public that there’s “nothing to worry about here.” My column was based upon the very real damage that occurred in Hawaii after a high-altitude nuclear burst detonated 800 miles away. Turner failed to mention that the vacuum tube technology of the 1950s was far less susceptible to electromagnetic pulse than the microprocessors and integrated circuits of today. Not only were lights turned off in Hawaii, but surge protectors also burned out. The threat today is many times greater with nuclear weapons specifically designed to inflict maximum EMP damage and are believed by intelligence agencies to be within the nuclear arsenals of Russia, China, North Korea, and soon Iran. Turner also failed to note the impact upon the tens of thousands of commercial and emergency vehicles that would be disabled (most non-recoverable) from an EMP attack: So how does food get delivered to grocery stores? Grocery stores typically keep a three-day supply of food on hand which is why starvation emerges as an existential threat to the nation. Former Director of the CIA James Woolsey briefed Congress on the extent and severity of this threat, (from which I based the content of my article) as did the Congressional EMP Commission reports of 2004 and 2008. They’re on the internet for all to read along with numerous books. Al Fonzi Atascadero


Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY QUINN BRADY

Fragile democracy

M

y early political conversations existed mostly on the other side of the aisle from where I stand today. I was surrounded by a conservative Christian community, which couldn’t for a moment entertain a woman’s right to choose or embrace the reality of a woman marrying a woman or put health care for all above profit for self. I struggled in that space, quietly questioning, pushing boundaries, challenging narratives. How can one group of people decide the worth and value of another’s life or limit their access and freedoms? How can we not honor the intrinsic equity of human life? I struggled over the pressures and confusions of these questions until one day in my 20s, I left it behind. I walked into a discovery of my love of democracy. A democracy of radical acceptance and justice and love. I know now that the questions I was asking then are the fundamental questions of democracy. The great Terry Tempest Williams says: “The human heart is the first home of democracy. It is where we embrace our questions. Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinions? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, without giving up—ever—trusting our fellow citizens to join with us in our determined pursuit of a living democracy?” As I began to tune in to the shaping of American democracy and the power of electoral politics, I was inspired, I was motivated, engaged, curious—even, dare I say, hopeful. I saw within the political process a possibility that our communities would bring to life true equity and inclusion, health and freedom, a balanced economy and sustainable housing, a thriving climate and justice for all. I found hope in democracy for a future that included me and my neighbors who didn’t look like me or think like me. For my co-worker who lost her life to patriarchal gun violence, for the lone Black student in my sixth grade class who endured normalized racism day after day, for the transgendered daughter of my best friend who was being discriminated against by the leadership of her school. Democracy held a hope and a possibility for a more beautiful world, as Charles Eisenstein says. I have held this love of democracy close, teaching my kids how to uphold a fair and just process, and facilitating conversations with others as they bravely enter the space of seeing one another. I have advocated and campaigned, stood in the gap when division and separation threatened communities and built relationships across chasms to discover that showing up for one another is where the magic happens. During these last years, we have seen everyday attacks on our democracy become normalized. Access to health care was stripped away, lands were fracked, rainbow flags were burned, children were put in cages, families were separated, Asian women were attacked in the streets, and Black men were murdered by the police. This isn’t partisan politics— this was the degradation of humanity,

a systematic assault on our democracy. People have spent their days anticipating and reacting to the everyday assaults on our freedom and our humanity while others barely seemed to notice. All the while, the right has quietly and strategically made a slow and deliberate attack day by day not just on our freedoms, but on our ability to fight for our freedom at all. Democracy is and always has been fragile and vulnerable and not to be taken for granted. In its very nature, democracy leaves room for disagreement, even ardent disagreement, while creating the structure for decisions to be made peaceably to move communities forward. But the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol was the outcome of a sustained assault on the foundations that make democracy possible. The irrational subversion of truth undermining the credibility of the process, the persistent denigration of the rights of others, and the swift dismantling of democratic norms have all been designed to lead to the death of democracy as we know it. Republicans currently have 389 bills in 48 states that would suppress the right to vote. And with the SLO County Board of Supervisors enacting irrational campaign donation limits, restricting voting access, and taking away automatic vote-by-mail ballots, gerrymandering the redistricting process as we speak, and their most recent inaction to meaningfully address unabashed racist attacks on our county clerk recorder, it is clear that voter suppression is gaining traction. We know the future of American democracy is at stake. But why aren’t more people outraged? We don’t seem to be taking this as the personal attack it is. If you are frustrated about the lack of mental health care, or policing, or housing prices, or resources for the houseless community, or climate inaction, or our racist district attorney, your attention should be on what is happening at the county Board of Supervisors. Over the next six months, our five supervisors will decide if democracy lives to see another day or if our future will be decided without us. If democracy dies in SLO County, who will we become? And what story will you tell? ∆

The Shredder

Say something

I

’m not 100 percent sure why neither 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton nor 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold chose to speak out against one of their people asking whether SLO County ClerkRecorder Tommy Gong was a member of the Chinese Communist Party. And that is literally the absolute least they could do in the situation SLO County currently finds itself in—losing a trustworthy, unbiased election official in part because of the accusations their party’s members made against him. People accused him of being corrupt, fraudulent, and more at a May Board of Supervisors meeting. And now he’s leaving crazy-town. Can I come, too? Do Arnold and Compton believe the accusations? Or are they scared of the conspiracist crazies who make up the North County wing of the party they love? If elections are so fraudulent, why haven’t we been able to get rid of these two yet? Compton, who won her last election by the length of exactly one of her long blond hairs, didn’t have anything terrible to say about Gong or his staff after a carefully observed, highly publicized count of the votes in the 2018 election put her ahead of Jimmy Paulding by just 60 votes. Seems like a pretty transparent and fair election process to me. Seems like she should definitely support an elections official for a job well done—at least

enough to tell someone accusing him of being a communist to shove it. But she’s got nothing. For someone who can speak 10,000 words per minute when she really gets going, Compton is unusually quiet when it comes to pushing back against her people when they step out of line. Just like when her Planning Commissioner and Nipomo “Citizen of the Year” Jim Harrison resigned from his appointed post after being called out for Facebook posts where he compared Democrats to Nazis and said Islam should be banned in the U.S. Compton said Zip. Zilch. Nada. And Arnold is just as wishy-washy as ever when it comes to pushing back against the allegations conservatives made against Gong. Have you ever noticed when she feels stuck she tries to tiptoe around an issue? It’s mumble bumble time. She told The Tribune she “didn’t want to speak against concerns expressed at the meeting.” Why?! What bright-line are you tiptoeing around by not saying, “No, actually, Gong isn’t a member of the Chinese Communist Party”? Now, we have to watch as the Board of Supervisors appoints Gong’s replacement. Something the conservative majority is going to manhandle like they always do, turning a position that’s supposed to be fair and unbiased into a politically charged nightmare.

Which is exactly what the Arroyo Grande City Council did with the Central Coast Blue water project. Like a bunch of children throwing a temper-tantrum, the council pulled out of the project because the other two cities that have been involved in the project—Grover Beach and Pismo Beach—didn’t immediately acquiesce to its demands. Instead, like adults, Grover and Pismo wanted to have a public meeting to discuss those demands, which included renegotiating a shared operating agreement for the $85 million wastewater treatment project that would supplement the region’s water supply. The two cities also proposed that two city council members from each city work together in ongoing discussions about the project. Arroyo Grande isn’t interested in having adult discussions! And council members decided not to allocate another cent to the project until the city gets its way. “I feel like they haven’t heard us at all,” Mayor Caren Ray Russom said at the June 8 Arroyo Grande City Council meeting. “It underscored that we don’t get input.” I feel like the whole interaction just underscores that the Arroyo Grande City Council isn’t interested in figuring out how to come to some sort of amenable solution. Council members have turned something that’s been in the works for years and is meant to ensure water security into a political project. Unsurprisingly, Pismo Beach Mayor Ed Waage was not happy.

DENTAL CARE IMPLANT SPECIAL

“Our request for a public meeting of all three councils to work through issues in a transparent manner was denied,” Waage said. “The water security of our region should not be an exercise in political debate.” What he really meant was: “Grow up!” You know who else needs to grow up? Oceano. For such a little town, it’s got so much drama! And guess who’s comfortably stuck in the middle of it? Compton, who I assure you had plenty to say about Oceano apparently needing two advisory committees. For an unincorporated town of around 7,500 people, it sure has a lot of advising needs. Now, the little town that can’t stay out of trouble has a conservative advising committee and a liberal advising committee—both of which are supposed to “advise” Compton on the town’s needs and wants. Businesses and pro-off-roading enthusiasts in the community didn’t feel represented on the existing advisory committee, so they formed their own— even though the existing committee had openings and was inviting people to join. I guess these underrepresented folks weren’t interested in having open discussions with people who disagree with them, so they formed their own committee! That’s the answer: If you can’t agree with them, separate from them! At least that’s Arroyo Grande’s motto. Must be a South County thing? ∆ The Shredder never wants to grow up.

Moonshiner Collective plays an album release at The Siren

THE SIREN’S CALL Morro Bay nightclub The Siren reopens its doors to live music on June 15 when Moonshiner Collective plays an album release concert for We’ll Dance Once Again.

T

here’s a moment in the new Moonshiner Collective song “Easy” when a piano, mandolin, and harmonica are dancing around each other as frontman Dan Curcio sings, “When we meet, it’s like we never left, easy as the years have past.” It’s a song about old friends, the kind who—even after a long time apart—fall right back into comfortable old ways. That’s what it feels like for me as live shows slowly blossom back into familiar haunts like Morro Bay’s The Siren, which reopens to live music this Tuesday, June 15, when Moonshiner Collective plays an album release show for We’ll Dance Once Again. “This album was released midquarantine, but this will be its official venue release party,” Curcio explained via email. “Although written and recorded before the pandemic, I think these songs feel really fitting for these times we’re in—we grouped these songs together because they have a common thread of hopefulness, rebirth, and finding oneself amidst a chaotic world.” You can really feel the chaos in “Stream of Consciousness,” on which Curcio sings, “They say I’m losing my mind. I say I’m gaining my soul. They say I’m out of my mind. I say I’m out of control. Don’t mind the storm inside ’cause we all will find our places. Cut through my clouded mind ’cause it’s reality I’m chasing.” The songs and musicianship are typically excellent. Though Curcio is the one constant of Moonshiner Collective, the people he surrounds himself with are amazing. “This will be the official venue show debut for our new eight-string guitarist Gary Wooten,” Curcio noted. “He plays both bass and guitar parts on all the songs, and his guitar is essentially a bass and guitar in one instrument that is routed to a separate bass amp and guitar amp. Watching him do his thing is worth admission alone, but the way he elevates our songs has taken us to an entirely different level musically. We’ve also got Tyson Leonard (of Tropo) as special guest on violin/mandolin for this one, and I just had one of the best rehearsals I’ve ever been a part of with him.” This promises to be a terrific reopening for The Siren. “We’re so excited to be able to share music with our Central Coast community in this way again and feeling really grateful for the opportunity,” Curcio added. Don’t miss this Good Medicine Presents and Numbskull Productions show with opening act Bear Market Riot (21-andolder; doors at 7 p.m.; $20 presale at eventbrite.com). Also this week, catch the all-female folk

act Solstice Sisters this Friday, June 11, at The Olde Alehouse in Los Osos (5:30 to 8:30 p.m.). Emily Post (acoustic guitar, vocals), Lillian Dennis (fiddle, vocals), Cara Brown (acoustic guitar, vocals), and Christi Brown (keys, vocals) play an eclectic mix of originals and uniquely arranged covers. Roots rock and country act Jolon Station Band plays Saturday, June 12, at Cal Coast Brewery (6 to 9 p.m.). Formed in 2017, they play mostly classic country and rock covers as well as a growing number of originals. Songwriters at Play with host Steve Key returns to Paso Robles’ Sculpterra Winery with special guests Katie Ferrara and Fort Vine on Saturday, June 12 (12:30 to 3:30 p.m.; all ages; free).

COASTAL COUNTRY Former Cal Poly student and recent New Times Music Award winner Derek James just released a new single, “How It Sounds,” that perfectly captures the Central Coast vibe—country music style.

Country star in the making

Modesto-raised and Cal Poly-educated Derek James has perfected what he calls the “coastal country” sound, polished radio-ready music that’s about the coastal lifestyle. His newest, “How It Sounds,” paints a romantic and familiar picture. “BFGs on the PCH, hum of the tires gettin’ lost in the waves/ Whistle in the wind makes the palm trees sway, oh yeah/ The windows roll down with a couple good cranks/ Music up loud you can’t help but sing/ When you’re playin’ somethin’ with a little bit of twang, oh// It could be the taste of a kiss on a Friday night/ The way a girl looks when she looks just right/ Feelin’ the roll of a midnight train/ Or the smell of September rain/ I could tell you ’bout the life I found/ But if you listen, I

could show you how it sounds.” His sound is decidedly country in a Kenny Chesney and Jake Owen vein, but he’s also influenced by quintessential California acts the Beach Boys and Eagles. He took second in the country/ folk/Americana category of last year’s New Times Music Awards. After graduating in 2019 with an Industrial Technology & Packaging degree, he stuck around and has been focusing on his music. “During my time as a student, I fronted a country band called Grand Ave.,” he said in an email interview. “Since graduation, some members have moved out of the area and are pursuing different things. I stayed in SLO to build off the momentum we created and use that to launch my solo music. While my eventual goal is to move to Nashville (end of 2021/ early 2022), there is something about SLO that made me want to stay—I feel like I still have unfinished business. I want to release music as a solo artist and continue to build a local and online presence before moving to Tennessee.” He’ll be releasing five more singles in the coming months, and a lot of his music is inspired by the California mystique. “I think California is really unique, especially the Central Coast. Within a hundred miles, there’re many distinctly different scenes and types of people: beach bums, farmers, college students, retirees, etc. It’s a cool area. Cal Poly is a big ag school and there’s a big agricultural presence here, but I think country music is really underrepresented. I’m excited to hopefully represent the Central Coast well and give country music a unique spin that people around here would understand. Country music is about telling stories—real stories— inspired by your life and what you know. For me, that’s living here in the Central Coast. I’m not a Southern boy and never will be. I like to write about life on the West Coast, and although we do country things around here, it looks a little different. “Growing up in the Central Valley, I was surrounded by farmland and ag,” he continued. “Coming to school at Cal Poly, I fell in love with the coastal feel of the area. That’s where the idea of coastal country came from—I just put together the two things I knew about. If country music is driving down back roads and going fishing, coastal country is driving down back roads and going fishing ... and then stopping by the beach to catch the sunset on your ride home. I’ve given this definition a lot of thought and I think it explains what I’m trying to do pretty well. Coastal country combines the storytelling and content of traditional country music with modern instrumentation and lyrics to create a unique sound inspired by life on the coast that hits hardest at the beach but plays well anywhere.” You can hear his new song and the others still to be released on all major streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and YouTube.

Central Coast Film Society announces winners of ‘Never Stop Creating’ student competition

The winners of the Central Coast Film Society’s inaugural “Never Stop Creating” competition, which was open to high school students across Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Ventura, and Monterey counties, were announced at the end of May. Morro Bay High School student Ella Stoneman won Best in Show for her film, Life is Beautiful, and was awarded with a scholarship from The Good People Association. Additional scholarships were awarded to the top applicants from each category (film, screenwriting/ storytelling, film editing/reel, photography, and podcasting), including Central Coast New Tech High School student Keira Prazanowski (for her photograph, Forks, pictured) and San Luis Obispo High School students Ian Hammons, Ian McKay, Zarian Schick, and Douglas Troy. According to the Central Coast Film Society, the competition was proposed and initiated in order to celebrate local student artists who found safe ways to continue creating media during the COVID19 pandemic. “The past year, these student creators have endured the unthinkable with lockdowns, remote classes, and canceled events from school to sports and recreation. We wanted to give them an opportunity to do something positive,” Raiza Giorgi, president of the Central Coast Film Society, said in a statement. The judges who chose the winners of this competition were Skye McLennan, the festival director for the SLO Film Festival; Chris Lambert, the creator and producer of Your Own Backyard podcast; Sheryl Franciskovich, the publisher and creative director for SLO Life Magazine; Randi Barros, an instructor at Cal Poly; Ken Napzok, an author and podcaster; Chris Burkard, a photographer and filmmaker; and Josh Ernstrom, a digital media producer for PG&E.

Elisa Ortega Montilla explores gender, consumerism, and intersectionality in Objectifying at SLOMA

P

lywood grains curve, bending into a soft round shape plopped into half of an old black mesh bra. At its base, pink, red, and white petals make their way up to a misshapen second half, embroidered and pressed into the wooden beauty of Asimetría. Artist Elisa Ortega Montilla said she’s had a lot of women reach out to tell her how much they related to it. “They all had breast cancer and it felt like a celebration of it,” she said. “And the flower made it feel like the replacement of the breast that was taken.” Although that wasn’t quite what Ortega Montilla was going for when she put the piece together, it’s not important. What matters is how the pieces she creates speak to whoever’s viewing them, she said. “I love it when people share, because then I can see my work expanding outside of what I’m just creating,” she said. “I love creating things that create confusion or create questions and just leaving it open to interpretation. … Sometimes it’s autobiographical in detail and sometimes it’s just a reference point for people to look at and relate to it in different ways.” Ortega Montilla said she’s trying to develop a body of work that doesn’t necessarily replicate the specific shapes of male or female body parts; rather her pieces are made up of shapes that evoke them—distortions of the body or a part of the body. Mostly, those pieces investigate what it means to be a woman, the language that we use to talk about women, and the constructs embedded in how society perceives gender. Several of Ortega Montilla’s pieces are on display at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA) through June 27 in Objectifying, one of the museum’s first exhibits that’s open to the public for in-person viewing since the COVID-19 pandemic started.

Black Rabbit Studio in SLO hosts upcoming in-person workshop, Paint Your Pet

On Saturday, June 19, Black Rabbit Studio in San Luis Obispo will host an acrylic painting workshop, Paint Your Pet, led by artist and art instructor Jamie Dietze, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants of this in-person event will complete their own portrait of a favorite animal or pet. Admission to the class is $40, which includes all materials needed to complete the painting.

WOOD AND FABRIC Using reclaimed wood and secondhand clothing, Elisa Ortega Montilla creates art that explores her identity—being a woman with feminist values, maintaining her Spanish identity while living in the U.S., opposing consumerism, and being committed to environmental sustainability.

ANATOMÍAS Ortega Montilla’s series of sculptures in Objectifying seeks to question traditional gender roles and the way society teaches us to view our bodies, but she likes to leave her pieces up to interpretation. “It can be female parts, male parts. But it can be anything. It can be a worm, it can be an animal,” she said.

Interpret yourself

The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art is now open for in-person exhibits. You can view Objectifying through June 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Thursday through Monday at 1010 Broad St. in San Luis Obispo. To see more of Elisa Ortega Montilla’s art, visit elisa-ortega-montilla.com.

SLOMA Executive Director Leann Standish said the museum is fortunate to have Ortega Montilla’s thoughtful work in their program now that SLOMA’s open again. Visitors have really responded to the show, which Standish said could indicate a new direction for the museum and the kind of work it displays. “I think it is an important show, and I’m so impressed by Elisa’s beautiful pieces. The fluidity of the sculptures really strikes me,” Standish told New Times via email. “Elisa was a social worker before she dedicated herself to her art, I think that is relevant and important when considering exhibitions for the museum. Our programs are meant to explore interdisciplinarity and ways that the work on our walls can teach us something about the world we live in.” SLOMA’s role in the community, Standish said, is to inspire conversation and facilitate a place where discourse can take place. As a social worker, Ortega Montilla worked with women in the gypsy community of Spain as well as victims of domestic violence in Guatemala. In 2012, she moved to the United States from Spain because of the country’s economic crisis. She did social work in LA with women from the LGBTQ-plus community and case management with homeless youth in Hollywood for about five years before applying to art school at UC Santa Barbara. The art she creates is an intimate reflection of her lifetime experiences, as a social worker, as a woman, as a feminist, as a Spanish woman in the United States, as a child who grew up in Spain a decade after it transitioned from a fascist dictatorship. Austerity measures that her parents lived through were very much a part of her childhood. “Everything that I wore was like mended or fixed, everything had second and third and even fourth lives if they could be fixed,” she said.

TRAPPED Elisa Ortega Montilla’s piece This Is Not A Vagina is part of her Objectifying exhibit now up at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA) through the end of June.

Which is part of the reason why her art recycles already used products, such as reclaimed beams, old pieces of plywood, and used women’s underwear. Ortega Montilla takes care to ensure the wood shows that it’s on a second life. Glue seams, screws, and the bruises that come with use break up the perfection of the wood she sculpts. “As an artist I was really interested in giving life to materials that were discarded, especially now, because consumerism is at an all-time high,” she said. “Using reclaimed materials is trying to aim with those values of sustainability.” A painter in high school, Ortega Montilla applied to school with a portfolio of figurative paintings of women—the untold history of women she wasn’t taught about in school. But when she arrived at UC Santa Barbara, she came across the woodshop while she was on a tour of the art facilities. “I was like, ‘fuck, I have to be here,’” she said. “I just felt a very visceral attraction to being in this space and working with wood.” Although UC Santa Barbara doesn’t teach wood-sculpting classes, Ortega Montilla taught herself how to sculpt it with the help of a woodshop technician—which is what she does now. Everyone will understand her work based on their own perspectives, Ortega Montilla said, but the body parts she sculpts and the way she attaches pieces of fabric to them create images that are familiar to everyone simply because of the way society talks about gender. “If I allow my intuition to guide me, and I just focus on the materials and what they do to each other, then these things happen in a very subtle way,” she said. “Like a coincidence or not, because it’s all based on the images we are exposed to as women.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham thinks society is distorted.

who went from famous female spearfishing champion to advocate for sharks. Thanks to SLO Motion Film, the biopic will be screened as a benefit for the Central Coast State Parks Association on June 12. The documentary benefits from a trove of fantastic archival footage. Taylor is extremely famous in her native Australia, and her early career as a spearfisher was well chronicled. This early footage is amazing—almost as amazing a Taylor’s life story, which we hear from her own mouth in contemporary interviews. She was a brave and beautiful young woman, which made her a star. Her conscience made her a hero. The inspiring story is one of personal growth and ecological revelation about the importance and beauty of all sea life, including sharks. She—perhaps more than any other diver— helped demystify sharks and demonstrate that they’re not the mindless killing machines they’ve been made out to be. It’s a remarkable piece of filmmaking and a wonderful tribute to a pioneering woman. (95 min.) —Glen

o-writer/director Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) helms this confused sci-fi, fantasy, horror, romance, drama, and unintentional comedy about five young mutants forced to live together in a secret facility overseen by the Nurse Ratchet-like Dr. Reyes (Alice Braga), whose job is to help the mutants discover and control their powers apparently so her superiors can use them as weapons. Our protagonist is Native American teen Dani Moonstar (Blu Hunt), who in the opening set piece we see survive some kind of horrible

She awakes to find herself trapped with mean girl Illyana Rasputin (Anya Taylor-Joy), country bumpkin Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), shallow hunk Roberto da Costa (Henry Zaga), and deeply religious Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams). Together, they must exorcize their past sins and join forces to save themselves while with straight faces reciting inane dialogue. It’s quite atrocious, with a story so cliché that it even busts out the old Native American analogy of two wolves—one good and one evil, fighting inside us all, and the one we feed wins—except with bears. An offhand lesbian romance between Dani and Rahne signals that the film wants to be woke, but these characters are cookie-cutter and this story borders on the stupid. Watch it for fun! (94 min.)

FIELD OF DREAMS Direct-toconsumer manager Rosie Behrens says Sixmilebridge “sits in a corridor of happy Bordeaux moments” within Paso’s Adelaida District, best known for premier Rhone varieties.

Sixmilebridge celebrates its first anniversary with a powerhouse tasting event hosted by two of Paso’s finest winemakers

T

Who will win? Well … everybody. Yount adores Fiorentini, and Paso isn’t Napa. “I’ve been friends with Jordan for over 10 years,” Yount said. “In fact, we worked in the same winery for four years. Epoch made their wine at Denner from 2008 to 2013. I’ve always considered her like a sister—someone that has your back, but also always keeps you honest.” The feeling’s mutual. Fiorentini said Yount “is one of the smartest and most daring winemakers I know. He’s also an incredible human being. I’d adopt him as my brother in an instant.” According to Rosie Behrens, Sixmilebridge’s direct-to-consumer manager, supporting one another “is what makes Paso Paso.” She said being removed from major metropolitan areas Bordeaux bound Sixmilebridge has wine tasting appointments daily gives Paso “a special community focus, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 5120 Peachy Canyon Road which you find in small-town and middle in Paso Robles. Visit sixmilebridge.com to book. America.” “As you’re approaching the PHOTO COURTESY OF SIXMILEBRIDGE Napa area, or if you’re near LA or San Francisco, there’s a bit more of that competitive drive—a less communitycentric attitude,” added Behrens, who previously managed nearby Brecon Estate’s consumer experience for five years. “I think that’s something very charming about (Paso). Everybody helps everybody. Anything that’s good for the region is helpful for everybody. So why wouldn’t we do that.” Sixmilebridge Winery owners TASTING NOTES Sixmilebridge proprietors (left to right) Barbara and Jim Moroney and winemaker Jim and Barbara Moroney, who Anthony Yount sample their varietals at Denner, split their time between Dallas where they currently produce their wines. and Paso, wholeheartedly agree. he dramatic terrain of westside Paso Robles will be the setting for an epic wine battle on June 12 pitting Old World varietals against New World, male winemaker vs. female, and established vineyard vs. newcomer. June 2021 marks Sixmilebridge Winery’s one-year anniversary, and just as the summer weather is heating up, so too is the competition between this small boutique winery off Peachy Canyon Road and Epoch Estate Wines, perched nearby on historic York Mountain. Sixmilebridge’s Bordeaux varietals will face off against Epoch’s Rhone selections in a comparative flight tasting hosted by their respective winemakers: Anthony Yount and Jordan Fiorentini.

“Barbara and I just fell in love with Paso Robles. It’s such a beautiful area. The people are authentic, genuine, just wonderful. We love the collaborative spirit,” Jim Moroney said. In fact, he added, they get the bulk of their referrals from some of their closest neighbors, Villa Creek Cellars, Law Estate Wines, and Torrin. Moroney, who retired in 2018, was publisher and CEO of The Dallas Morning News and presided over its parent company, A.H. Belo Corp. The couple’s love of Bordeaux wines and the desire “to make a wine we would enjoy drinking every single day” inspired them to take plunge into the wine industry. He thinks that goal has already been achieved, “and I don’t take any credit for that.” He attributes the wines’ success to the talented team of Yount and his wife/vineyard manager, Hillary Yount, combined with Behrens presiding over consumer marketing. The group began assembling in 2012, but they didn’t open the tasting room until June 2020. Yount—who juggles multiple jobs, including principal winemaker at both Denner and Sixmilebridge, winemaker/ owner of Kinero Cellars and Royal Nonesuch Farms, and parent to 1- and 5-year-old girls with Hillary—offers three pointers to novice vintners.

“First and foremost, do something that you’re passionate about because it’s going to be a ton of work. And if you’re not passionate about it, the work at some point is going to feel overwhelming,” he said. “Pick a grape and a region and a style that is true to you, and that way you’re not shooting at a moving target. You see, a lot of vintners come in and say they want to make a high-scoring wine, and I’ll say, for who, and does that matter, how are you going to do that? So set the tone for the project based on your passion and what you love, and then it will be successful,” Yount said. Secondly, he advises, “Start small, grow slow. That’s my biggest piece of advice because it’s so capital-intensive to start a winery and vineyard, and it takes a long time to build inventory. And these are all things that Jim and Barbara have done very well. You know Jim’s mentioned he’s in a pickle where he doesn’t have enough wine, and you’d rather be in that position than the opposite.” Yount’s final pointer is to remember that it’s all about the vineyard. “I think a lot of people want to come in and put an emphasis on a winemaker like me. But I can’t be better than the vineyard and the vineyard manager I’m FLAVOR continued page 28

Flavor FLAVOR from page 27

working with,” he explained. “They’re really the unsung heroes—the people out there farming the grapes and making sure that the product is great coming into the winery. All I really do is don’t fuck it up. Excuse my language.” The team at Sixmilebridge, along with the Epoch crew, will be putting their collaborative spirit to the test on June 12 when they present two wines from their respective inventory, capped by a special Old World selection from the Bordeaux and Rhone regions of France. Sixmilebridge will be pouring a 2017 Cos D’estournel from Saint-Estephe comprised of 65 percent cabernet sauvignon and 35 percent merlot, stacked against its own 2018 cabernet sauvignon and 2017 estate cuvee. The winery’s flagship estate cuvee is a cabernet-based blend with merlot, malbec, petit verdot, and cabernet franc. Epoch winemaker Fiorentini will showcase a 2017 Chateauneuf-du-Pape from Clos des Papes consisting of 45 percent grenache, 40 percent mourvedre, 10 percent syrah, and other permitted varieties. Her Epoch pours will include 2017 Veracity, a mourvedre-heavy blend with grenache and syrah, and 2016 Block B, which is 100 percent syrah. Open to only 50 guests and held on-site at Epoch, home to the Central Coast’s first winery in the late 1800s, the event sold out within hours of being announced. But the wineries will release a video of the event on their websites later this month.

CONGRATS to all the DADS & GRADS!

For those hoping to check out Sixmilebridge in person, the winery offers tastings by appointment in an intimate, educational setting with one host per group. Wines hail from a steeply sloped 23-acre vineyard abutting their stateof-the-art tasting room, with only the McQueen cabernet sauvignon including externally sourced grapes. Since Sixmilebridge is low on inventory, they’re bridging the gap with early tastings of their 2018 vintages, as well as Yount’s 2020 Kinero Alice, a grenache blanc. The winery is also still pouring the 2017 Estate Cuvee, but all other 2017 wines are sold out. Next on the horizon for Sixmilebridge is an homage to both Ireland and France modeled after the Right and Left Bank regions of Bordeaux. While wines to the right of Bordeaux’s Gironde Estuary are merlot-centric, wines to the left are cabernet sauvignon-driven. Similarly, Sixmilebridge Winery’s namesake is a small town in County Clare, Ireland, flanked by Limerick to its right, and Shannon to its left—hence the names for its upcoming 2019 Right and Left Bank vintages, to be released in 2022. The Moroney family traces its ancestral roots to Ireland, and its label features a red ceremonial hat with a bullet hole. Ask your pourer for the history behind the hat. That’s another story. ∆ Flavor writer Cherish Whyte doesn’t care if her reds emigrate from Bordeaux or Rhone. Reach her through the editor at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

NICHOLSON in the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo. The Amended Petition for Probate requests that JOHN F. NICHOLSON be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE AMENDED PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested

person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: July 27, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 9 VIA ZOOM, in the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo, located at 1035 Palm St., Room 385, San Luis Obispo, CA 93408. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a formal Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

WHAT: Hearing to consider a request by Chevron Environmental Management Company (CEMC) for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2015-00067) to amend the existing Chevron Tank Farm Remediation and Development Conditional Use Permit (DRC2013-00056) to allow for an increased volume of Non-Hazardous Impacted Soils (NHIS) removal on the 322-acre San Luis Obispo Tank Farm Property (Project Site) and a modification to the approved haul routes to allow for the disposal of NHIS at the Cold Canyon Landfill (Revised Project). Cold Canyon Landfill was approved by Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) to receive NHIS in 2016. The grading plans prepared for the Chevron Tank Farm Remediation and Development project estimated up to 196,250 cubic yards of NHIS would be transported from the Project Site to the Santa Maria Regional Landfill, which was the closest NHIS-approved facility at that time. Based on additional testing and ongoing remediation, the Revised Project would result in the total removal of approximately 277,250 cubic yards of NHIS, approximately 81,000 cubic yards more than previously evaluated. The project is located south of the City of San Luis Obispo at 276 Tank Farm Road in the San Luis Obispo Sub Area of the San Luis Obispo Planning Area. Also to be considered is the environmental determination and approval of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Addendum was prepared because the proposed change would not result in any new significant impacts that were not evaluated in the previously certified Final EIR for Chevron Tank Farm Remediation and Development Project (DRC201300056). The Environmental Coordinator finds that the previously certified Final EIR is adequate for the purposes of compliance with CEQA because 1) no substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revision of the previously certified FEIR, 2) no substantial changes will occur with respect to the circumstance under which the project is undertaken that would require major revisions of the previously certified FEIR, and 3) no new information of substantial importance has been identified which was not known at the time that the previous FEIR was certified.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries actor Leonard Nimoy became mega-famous by playing the role of Spock, an alien from the planet Vulcan in the Star Trek franchise. He always enjoyed the role, but in 1975 he wrote an autobiography called I Am Not Spock. In it, he clarified how different he was from the character he performed. In 1995, Nimoy published a follow-up autobiography, I Am Spock, in which he described the ways in which he was similar to the fictional alien. In the spirit of Nimoy’s expansive self-definition, Aries, and in accordance with current astrological potentials, I invite you to make it clear to people exactly who you are and who you aren’t.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The poet Rumi declared, “A lover has four streams inside, of water, wine, honey, and milk.” With that in mind, Taurus, I will recommend that you seek a boost in the honey department. Your passions and feelings have been flowing along fairy well, but lately they’ve lacked some sweetness. As a result, you’re not receiving as much of the sweetness you need from the world around you. So your assignment is to intensify the honey stream within you! Remember the principle, “Like attracts like.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’m glad you’re not on the planet Saturn right now. The winds there can blow at 1,000 miles per hour. But I would like you to feel a brisk breeze as you wander around in nature here on Earth. Why? Because according to my interpretation of the current astrological omens, winds will have a cleansing effect on you. They will clear your mind of irrelevant worries and trivial concerns. They’ll elevate your thoughts as well as your feelings. Do you know the origin of the English word “inspire”? It’s from the Latin word inspirare, meaning “blow into, breathed upon by spirit.” Its figurative meaning is “to inspire, excite, inflame.” The related Latin word spiritus refers to “a breathing of the wind” and “breath of a god”—hence “inspiration; breath of life.”

(June 21-July 22): Cancerian author Franz Kafka put his characters into surreal dilemmas. In his novella The Metamorphosis, for example, the hero wakes up one day to find he has transformed into a giant insect. Despite his feral imagination, however, Kafka had a pragmatic relationship with consumerism. “I do not read advertisements,” he said. “I would spend all of my time wanting things.” In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to adopt his earthy attitude for the next two weeks. Take a break from wanting things, period. Experiment with feeling free of all the yearnings that constantly demand your attention. Please note: This break in the action won’t be forever. It’s just a vacation. When you return to wanting things, your priorities will have been realigned and healed, and you’ll feel refreshed.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Author Umberto Eco declared that beauty is boring because it “must always follow certain rules.” A beautiful nose has to be just the right shape and size, he said, while an “ugly nose” can be ugly in a million different unpredictable ways. I find his definition narrow and boring, and prefer that of philosopher Francis Bacon, who wrote, “There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” Poet Charles Baudelaire agreed, saying, “That which is not slightly distorted lacks sensible appeal: from which it follows that irregularity—that is to say, the unexpected, surprise and astonishment—is an essential part and characteristic of beauty.” Then there’s the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which reveres beauty that’s imperfect, transitory, and incomplete. Beginning now, and for the rest of 2021, Leo, I encourage you to ignore Eco’s dull beauty and cultivate your relationship with the more interesting kind.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): One of the more evocative passages in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel The Return of the King is about the warrior Éowyn. It says, “Then the heart of Éowyn

changed, or else at last she understood it. And suddenly her winter passed, and the sun shone on her.” I’m predicting a comparable transformation for you in the near future, Virgo. There’ll be some fundamental shift in the way your heart comprehends life. When that happens, you will clearly fathom some secrets about your heart that have previously been vague or inaccessible. And then the sun will shine upon you with extra brilliance.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran actor and author Carrie Fisher had more than the average number of inner demons. Yet she accomplished a lot, and was nominated for and won many professional awards. Here’s the advice she gave: “Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident.” I hope you’ll employ that strategy in the coming weeks, dear Libra. The time is favorable for you to work hard on your No. 1 goal no matter what your emotions might be at any particular moment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Fyodor Dostoevsky (18211881) had a gambling addiction for many years. At one point, he lost so much money betting on roulette that he had to take drastic measures. He wrote a novella in record time— just 16 days—so as to raise money to pay his debt. The story was titled The Gambler. Its hero was a not-very-successful gambler. Is there a comparable antidote in your future, Scorpio? A gambit that somehow makes use of the problem to generate the cure? I suspect there is.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In her poem “Escape,” Michelle Tudor addresses a lover: “Inside of you: a dream raging to be set free.” She implies that she would like to be a collaborator who provides assistance and inspiration in liberating her companion’s dream. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to make a similar offer to an ally you care for— and to ask that ally to do the same for you. And by the way: What is the dream inside you that’s raging to be set free? And what’s the dream inside your comrade?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Author Martha Beck has helpful counsel for you to keep returning to during the coming weeks. “It isn’t necessary to know exactly how your ideal life will look,” she writes. “You only have to know what feels better and what feels worse. Begin making choices based on what makes you feel freer and happier, rather than on how you think an ideal life should look. It’s the process of feeling our way toward happiness, not the realization of the Platonic ideal, that creates our best lives.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author James Dickey celebrated “the holy secret of flowing.” But he added, “You must be made for it.” In other words, he implied that the secret of flowing is a luxury only some of us have access to. And because we “must be made for it,” he seemed to suggest that being in possession of the secret of flowing is due to luck or genetics or privilege. But I reject that theory. I think anyone can tap into the secret of flowing if they have the desire and intention to do so. Like you! Right now! You’re primed to cultivate a robust relationship with the holy flow.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Why do humans enjoy much longer life spans than other higher primates? Here’s one reason: grandmothers. Anthropologists propose that earlier in our evolution, families with elder females especially thrived. The grandmothers helped care for children, ensuring greater health for everyone as well as a higher rate of reproduction than grandmother-less broods. Their longevity genes got passed on, creating more grandmothers. Lucky! Having older women around while growing up has been key to the success of many of us. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to celebrate and honor the role your own grandmothers and female elders have played in your life. And if you’re a grandmother, celebrate and honor yourself! ∆
