We are being legally/illegally EXTORTED! S.L.O. County bid $12,500 for a permit to get more permits, and spent it before we knew it. The county then forced cannabis farmers to sign a blank check with no explanation. Now 100% overrun, and $25,000 paid, we have nothing! The county also had to hire a third-party consultant to do their job. The moratorium on hemp makes growing tomatoes, avocados, every other food crop illegal, using this as a precedent against cannabis. The county is broke and in turn are trying to shut down a legal revenue generating job producing agricultural crops. You voted for the legalization of cannabis and this is an engineered prohibition. By who? Please call your county supervisor or county planner with any concerns.

Downtown SLO drops plans for new property district amid backlash

T

FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

he Downtown San Luis Obispo association announced July 9 that it has tabled plans to form a new property-based improvement district (PBID) that, if approved, would’ve funded cleaning and safety efforts in the city’s commercial and civic hub. After a surge in opposition to the PBID that grew “divisive,” the nonprofit’s board of directors voted 10-2 on July 9 to withdraw the proposal— which would have affected about 125 property owners from Palm to Marsh streets and Osos to Nipomo streets. The district would have collected roughly $400,000 annually to fund four to five “downtown ambassadors” to clean, conduct outreach to visitors, and connect homeless individuals with services. There are more than 100 cities in California with active PBIDs, according to Downtown SLO. “We will not be moving forward with this initiative at this time,” Downtown SLO CEO Bettina Swigger said in a press release. “Questions have surfaced in our community, and this issue has become divisive. Our goal as an organization has always been and must remain to present a unified voice for the businesses in the downtown.” Downtown SLO’s decision came a week before the SLO City Council was scheduled to certify that the PBID had received the needed signatures to move forward with a final vote. “We actually did get the [signatures]. It just got to be where the downtown was getting divided, and that was the last thing we wanted

as a board,” Downtown SLO President Pat Arnold told New Times on July 10. Opponents of the PBID took issue with the cost of the assessment—which varied from several hundred to a few thousand dollars per year depending on the size and frontage of the property and building—and questioned WITHDRAWN Downtown San Luis Obispo is tabling an effort to form whether an ambassador a new downtown property district, which would have funded four to five new ambassadors like Austin Bertucci (pictured) to perform cleaning program was an effective and outreach services. solution to cleanliness and safety concerns downtown. Broad Street property owner Wendy Spradlin, owns several parcels downtown, and a few large property owners would have had an unfair sway a member of the No on PBID Committee, walked the streets on July 9 warning businesses in the district’s formation vote, since votes were weighted by the value of the assessments. about the district and its impact on property Looking forward, Downtown SLO hopes to taxes and, potentially, rents if passed.

They’ll continue to employ assessment—which she said would’ve been the current downtown ambassador, Austin nearly $2,000 annually for her—would likely Bertucci, who receives strong support from the result in rent increases. business community for his work. “We’re just so happy that reason prevailed,” “He’s going to stick around, absolutely,” Spradlin said of Downtown SLO’s decision.

counts of grand theft embezzlement from the Atascadero High School Band and Pageantry Booster Club. In a complaint filed July 8 against Gong, who was the booster club’s treasurer, the DA’s Office alleges that Gong took a total of $32,554 from the club. According to the complaint, on July 5, 2017, Gong unlawfully took $3,104 from one of the band and club’s Union Bank accounts. On April 24, 2018, Gong took $19,600 from one Union Bank account and $9,850 from another Union Bank account, both of which belonged to the band and club, according to the DA’s Office. Lt. Robert Mollé of the Atascadero Police Department told New Times the department received a call from an Atascadero High School administrator on March 27, 2019. “One of our detectives interviewed her on April 19, she cooperated with us, and we subsequently filed the charges with the District Attorney’s Office,” Mollé said. Soon after the charges were announced, Gong’s husband, SLO County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong, sent out a press release requesting privacy for the family issue. “I was not aware of this matter until I received a call from an Atascadero Police Department detective recently, and I am not implicated in these matters,” the press release states. “I deeply love and care for my wife and family, and I will stand by her side and support her during this very difficult time.”

New Times reached out to Tommy Gong for further comment, but he did not respond before press time. Sherry’s attorney Guy Galambos sent New Times a statement on her behalf stating that about a year ago Sherry was subject to a highly stressful family crisis. “A close family member called her in a panic. He begged her for a large sum of money he needed within three days, declaring it was a matter of life or death, but wouldn’t elaborate on the details,” the statement reads. Sherry was frightened and embarrassed by the family issue and did not tell her husband or children, according to the statement. It states, “under extreme stress” Sherry “made a very serious mistake and borrowed funds.” The money that was “borrowed” was directly given to her family, and the statement says the funds did not directly benefit herself, her husband, or children. “She fully intended to repay this emergency loan, but the money was never given back to her as promised,” the statement says. When Sherry was contacted by the Atascadero Police Department, she agreed to an interview where she admitted her actions, and she presented the investigating detective with cashier’s checks to replace the funds, according to the statement. An arrest warrant for Sherry was recalled July 8 after Galambos posted $25,000 bail in NEWS continued page 6

Atascadero, SLO County won’t join Monterey Bay Community Power

Atascadero and unincorporated San Luis Obispo County residents will not have Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) as a choice for electricity in 2021—a decision that breaks away from the recent votes of six other local cities. On July 9, a divided Atascadero City Council opted not to agendize a decision to join MBCP, a public community choice energy (CCE) agency currently serving Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey counties. MBCP is expanding south in an effort to unify the Central Coast. MBCP enters in power contracts and sells often cleaner electricity to resident and business customers, while PG&E maintains the grid infrastructure. Twelve CCE agencies in the state are currently operating in PG&E territory. The Atascadero City Council was split 3-2, with Mayor Heather Moreno and Councilmembers Heather Newsom and Roberta Fonzi in the majority. They expressed skepticism about CCE in general, wanted more information about MBCP’s financials, and were concerned about its governance structure. Fonzi noted developments at Clean Power Alliance in Ventura County where some high electricity demand customers are seeing increasing rates, putting participating cities/counties on their heels. “I feel like I need more information before I commit my entire city to participate with MBCP,” Fonzi told New Times. Councilmembers Susan Funk and Charles Bourbeau disagreed and wanted to see the issue agendized in August for a decision. “Not to do so, it says we’re not willing to do the homework that we were elected to do to make decisions for our city. That’s going to be tough to defend,” Funk said. Earlier the same day, the SLO County Board of Supervisors also declined to agendize a discussion about MBCP. County officials have been trying to land a contract with a consultant to do a risk analysis of MBCP that can be presented to the board. But Chief

Administrative Officer Wade Horton said it’s unlikely the report will be ready by MBCP’s August deadline. “I am disappointed,” said 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson, who made a failed motion on July 9 to agendize the discussion. “This idea we have to check the financials of MBCP is surprising to me because they’re a public entity that’s had tremendous success. That’s why so many cities are signing up with them.” Gibson added that he believes the resistance to MBCP is in part political and ideological. “There remains some significant ideological opposition to this, and that’s truly disappointing,” he said. “These folks are playing politics with our energy future.” —Peter Johnson

Mindbody is being sued for labor code violations

A former employee of Mindbody claims the company violated labor code by failing to properly pay him and others for their hours worked. A complaint filed on July 1 against Mindbody, alleges that Daniel Cardwell and all current and former hourly paid or non-exempt employees who worked for Mindbody any time during the period of four years before the filing of the complaint were not paid for all the hours worked and missed meal periods. The complaint states that Cardwell doesn’t know which other employees might be in the same situation, but he estimates that there are more than 50 people and “the identity of such membership is readily ascertainable by inspection of defendant’s employment records.” Mindbody employed Cardwell and other individuals as hourly paid or non-exempt employees from March 2017 to November 2017, the lawsuit claims. Cardwell worked more than eight hours in a day and/or 40 hours in a week during his employment with the company, according to the lawsuit, and did not receive overtime compensation for all overtime hours worked. The complaint claims that Mindbody engaged in a pattern and practice of wage abuse against its hourly paid or nonexempt employees. The company, the complaint alleges, did not give Cardwell meal periods or a regular rate of pay when a meal period was missed and did not give at least

minimum wage for all hours worked. The complaint also alleges that Cardwell did not receive all wages owed to him upon discharge or resignation. Furthermore, according to the complaint, Cardwell and other individuals did not receive complete and accurate wage statements from the company, and he accuses Mindbody of not keeping complete and accurate payroll records. “[Mindbody] had the financial ability to pay such compensation, but willfully, knowingly, and intentionally failed to do so and falsely represented to Cardwell and other individuals that they were properly denied wages in order to increase the company’s profits,” the complaint reads. New Times reached out to Mindbody officials, who stated they “could not comment on pending litigation.” The parties must appear for a first case management conference on Oct. 24 at San Luis Obispo Superior Court. —Karen Garcia

Atascadero firefighters can now display their tattoos

The Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services will temporarily modify its tattoo policy, allowing firefighter personnel to leave their tattoos uncovered with some limitations. The temporary modification will be implemented on a trial basis, taking effect July 8 through Sept. 9. “It is common for the newer generation coming into the workforce to have tattoos that show,” he said. “We would like to still be able to hire these employees with tattoos, but also have updated guidelines to restrict the offensive ones as well as those that are located on the head or neck.” Fire Chief Casey Bryson told New Times the department has hired both seasonal and full-time employees over the last several years with tattoos on legs, upper, and lower arms.

The department is reflective of the community Bryson said, and tattoos are much more common than they were several years ago. Current department policy states that all existing tattoos for current employees shall be covered while the employee is in uniform and that appropriate measures such as long sleeve shirts or short sleeve shirts that have been modified to cover the tattoos, trousers, or natural colored bandages are used to cover all visible tattoos. He said when temperature in the summertime approach three digits, wearing long sleeves while in uniform is not comfortable or safe. “As a department, the trial policy will allow us to be progressive while keeping our people cooler and potentially safer in hot weather,” Bryson said. At the end of the trial period it will be determined if this will become a permanent policy modification, a summer exception, or if the Fire Department will return to current standards. With that in mind, Bryson said he welcomes any and all community feedback. Bryson said he received input from fire chiefs around the state because departments all over the nation have gone through this discussion. “Most have policies requiring concealment of anything offensive or any tattoo on the face, head, neck, or hand. Other departments echo the same sentiment that it has become normal in today’s society,” he said. Δ —Karen Garcia

The other side Local activists support displaced immigrants

I

n the wake of local impacts from national immigration issues, several SLO County residents formed an activist group to raise awareness and educate the community. As part of that effort, members of Allies for Immigration Justice traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, to provide support to Haitian immigrants who have been displaced. There, they also learned about an office that aids U.S. military veterans who have been deported. Douglas Pillsbury, a member of the Allies’ steering committee, said he was one of nine people from the advocacy group who traveled to San Diego May 27 to work with the San Diego-based nonprofit Haitian Bridge Alliance. The nonprofit helps Haitian immigrants with documentation translation and preparation, passport and identification facilitation, computer and Wi-Fi access, immigration attorney assistance, and résumé and work preparation. The nonprofit formed, Pillsbury said, because there is a large number of Haitian immigrants currently in Mexico for two main reasons. He explained that in 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake in Haiti struck Port-au-Prince, just south of the capital. According to an article by

Public Radio International’s The World program, it’s estimated that 3 million people were left in need of emergency aid. Five years later, Haiti was devastated again, this time by Hurricane Matthew, leaving widespread damage. Pillsbury said the Allies group learned that these factors and many others caused a large number of Haitians to travel to Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico. Twice a month, the nonprofit visits a church in Tijuana called Ambassadors of Jesus—nicknamed “Little Haiti”—where Haitian immigrants live in tents and wait their turn to make the trip to the immigration office to ask for asylum in the United States. “The first view that we had of the church was that there was garbage everywhere,” Pillsbury said. “Inside the church, in contrast to the outside, it was very clean and neat.” The first visit the nonprofit makes is to assess the situation in Little Haiti and see what the needs are of the people living there. After raising enough funds to purchase basic necessities (soap, diapers, or food) the nonprofit returns with its donation. During the second trip, Bridge Alliance also focuses on providing legal or medical assistance. The members of the Allies for Immigration Justice were part of the second visit on May 27. In collaboration with the local United Church of Christ

and Unitarian Universalists from SLO, the Allies raised $900 to contribute to the nonprofit’s effort, Pillsbury said. The church is currently lined with four- to five-person tents that Haitian immigrants live in. At any given time, Pillsbury said, there are between 200 to 250 people living at the church waiting to go through the immigration process. He said the group met people who had barely gotten to the church and others who’d been living there for more than a few months, waiting. Allies is looking to share their experience with the community at the Lights for Liberty public event that they’re co-hosting with the Women’s March SLO on July 13. The focus of the peaceful rally and vigil is to shine a light on what’s happening at the U.S. and Mexico border and in detention centers across the country. The group also aims to share information about its visit to an office for the U.S. Deported Veterans Resource Center. It’s a place for displaced veterans who in some cases had a green card when joining the U.S. military and who’ve committed a crime after their time of service and were deported because of it. Solina Lindahl, an Allies member, said that many individuals in this scenario believed they would become citizens by serving the U.S., but that wasn’t the case. She said that, in the past and currently, the U.S. military hasn’t proactively helped its members get the right paperwork for a path to naturalization. In other cases, many individuals who

visit the Deported Veterans Resource Center came to the U.S. as children and became legal residents, but again because of a crime were expelled from the country they served. The center provides resources and support for those individuals to access their benefits such as medical care, counseling, and pensions—which are difficult to claim abroad. “Although there is a pathway to naturalization [military personnel] are often not advised of the correct steps, and they fall through the cracks fairly easily,” she said. Lindahl said the group shared the information they learned from the center with U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara), who is co-sponsoring a bill to aid military personnel in proactively getting paperwork for naturalization. The Support and Defend Our Military Personnel and Their Families Act was introduced to the House of Representatives in April. If passed, it would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to protect the well-being of soldiers and their families. In the same month, Carbajal also cosponsored another bill, the Veterans Visa and Protection Act of 2019. If passed, it would require the secretary of Homeland Security to establish a veterans visa program to permit veterans who’ve been removed from the U.S. to return as immigrants. ∆

brought more business to SLO County. “You’re hoping that if there’s a problem, it hits some place else and not you,” Ikeda said. “For certain crops, we were the lucky ones.” While the 2018 crop report delivered good news on the revenue side of the industry, farmers are quick to point out that those values don’t necessarily tell the whole story. They don’t include costs or profits. Rising operation costs—whether they be labor, infrastructure, or regulation related—can offset the revenue gains. “One thing we noticed on our farm was that revenue was up but so were our costs,” Ikeda said. “Even though it looked really good on the revenue side, the nets weren’t as good as you might expect.” Brent Burchett, executive director of the SLO County Farm Bureau, also warned against drawing broad conclusions from the crop report. “Some people might say, ‘Oh, farmers are making a lot of money. It’s a great time in agriculture.’ That’s not necessarily the case,” Burchett said. Labor, water, trade agreements, and government regulation are top of mind as continued concerns for the ag community. Recently, farmers clashed with SLO County supervisors when the board passed a temporary moratorium on industrial hemp, despite the crop’s legal status both federally and in California. The Farm Bureau strongly opposed the policy, which will be up for reconsideration on July 16. Burchett called it a “government grab” on a promising new commodity that had drawn the immediate attention

of investors. The county has also heavily restricted the high-valued cannabis industry since it was legalized in California. “It’s really unfortunate we’ve put back industrial hemp this growing season,” Burchett said. “Hemp is one of those crops that today could be a high-gross return for a small farmer.” Federally, uncertainty around the Trump administration’s trade wars has also affected farmers. Tariffs on imported steel and aluminum increased the price of farm equipment. Trump’s proposed replacement for NAFTA, the CUSMA (Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement), has not yet been ratified by Congress. “In most cases, not knowing is a lot worse than knowing bad news,” Ikeda said of the trade uncertainty. “Threats of tariffs and threats of not having trade agreements has huge effects on future planning.” Burchett said the Farm Bureau supports free trade and the CUSMA, despite its imperfections. “We don’t supports tariffs,” he said. “We want to see open borders and markets.” On top of these pressures, farmers also worry about future droughts. Ikeda said he knows he can’t bank on wet years like 2018. “You know that’s not going to happen every year,” Ikeda said. “I’ve lived here all my life, and I know another drought is just around the corner.” ∆

Bountiful SLO County agricultural values hit all-time high in 2018

F

or the first time ever, San Luis Obispo County’s agricultural industry has eclipsed $1 billion in value. In a record-breaking 2018, local crop and livestock values totaled $1.04 billion, a 12 percent surge over 2017, according to the county’s annual crop report released this month. Since 2009, SLO’s agricultural economy has grown 66 percent, or by $412 million in overall value. “It’s a milestone year,” said Martin Settevendemie, SLO County’s agricultural commissioner. “We had really good growing conditions.” Higher rainfall, more available labor, and favorable market conditions helped wine grapes, avocados, vegetables, and field crops all make significant gains in 2018. Wine grapes ($276 million) and strawberries ($268 million) continued to dominate the local market, with broccoli ($48 million), avocados ($46 million), and cattle/calves ($44 million) rounding out the county’s highest valued commodities. Avocados saw the biggest year-overyear improvements in 2018, with yields

up 96 percent and values up 69 percent. For many crops, including avocados, the lifting of the 2011-2017 drought helped with production and sales. “Over the past few years [during the drought], we had a lot of avocado growers who had to stump trees or even remove them,” Settevendemie said. Some of those fallowed groves have since gone back into production. Strawberries also set records last year: Harvests were up 22 percent and values up $40 million. Vegetables rebounded after a shaky 2017 that marked a 35-year low in production. Tom Ikeda, a third-generation Arroyo Grande vegetable farmer, said adjustments to H-2A foreign labor as well as outside market forces played a role in SLO’s record year. Farmers are having more success with the H-2A program, which brings temporary foreign workers to the area to fill labor shortages. “I think there are a lot more people utilizing the H-2A labor program,” Ikeda said. “They used that program to try to cover some of the shortages they’ve had in the years past ... which meant there was more product harvested.” Ikeda said local growers also caught a break last year when Ventura County vegetable farms had issues with diamondback moths—which in turn

LOOKING TO THE SKY SLO County airport (pictured) recently added direct flights to Las Vegas, which may slightly impact the Vegas flights that the Santa Maria airport has offered for years.

BY KAREN GARCIA AND KASEY BUBNASH

Taking off H ordes of Central Coast residents took to their social media pages on June 26 to cheer the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport’s announcement that it will soon offer direct flights to Las Vegas, a move that could impact the Santa Maria airport’s limited flight options. Santa Maria Public Airport General Manager Chris Hastert said that while the announcement came as a surprise, he’s not worried about any hits to Santa Maria’s longstanding flights to Vegas— which are offered several times a week at relatively low prices by Allegiant Air. “Allegiant will still be very competitive,” Hastert told New Times. The SLO County Regional Airport announced in a press release on June 26 that Contour Airlines would offer nonstop service from San Luis Obispo to Las Vegas beginning Oct. 17. The flights will be offered on a 30-seat plane four times per week—on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday—with flights departing Las Vegas in midmorning and returning from SLO in early afternoon. Every flight will include complimentary snacks, beverages, and a free checked bag, according to the press release, and Contour plans to offer its initial fares at a lower than usual price, starting at $99 one way. Until now, Santa Maria has been the go-to place on the Central Coast for inexpensive, easy, and direct flights to Vegas, and those flights have kept the Santa Maria airport’s commercial flight operations alive. “If you look at airports along the Central Coast from Santa Barbara to Monterey, we all share various overlap in service because of the communities we serve. Yes, we’re closely spaced, but we have very different markets, and the region is large enough to support multiple flights a day on many routes,” Kevin Bumen, director of SLO County airports, told New Times. Bumen said Contour Airlines, which is the airport’s fourth and newest airline, has been operating out of the Santa Barbara Airport for about a year. The lack of commercial flight services for Santa Maria’s business and leisure travel communities has been a major concern for the Santa Maria Public airport District board of directors for years.

Although Hastert said Santa Maria’s airport will likely see some impacts to its ridership numbers because of SLO’s deal with Contour, he expects those effects to be insignificant. Contour’s discounted, introductory prices of $99 one-way are more expensive than Allegiant’s usual prices, Hastert said, and while each Contour flight to Vegas will offer only 30 seats, Allegiant’s aircrafts hold up to 150. Hastert said airport staff plan to monitor the situation closely, but he estimates that as long as people like to go to Vegas for fun, Santa Maria’s flights will do well. The airport’s highest priority, Hastert said, is re-establishing hub service to benefit the business and military community. He said that the board hopes to partner with a major airline that could provide eastbound flights to hub airports in Denver, Phoenix, or Salt Lake City.

• At the end of June, French Hospital Medical Center announced the launch of its Beyond Health fundraising campaign for the $125 million campus expansion that includes a four-story patient care tower that will double their capacity. The hospital already has almost $101 million committed, with $95 million being invested by Dignity Health and the balance coming from many private donors in the San Luis Obispo County community. The investments will fund the development of the four-story 85,000-square-foot hospital addition that includes 56 new private patient rooms; a 16-bed neonatal intensive care unit; an additional 10 intensive care unit beds; new front entrance, lobby, and dining area; a rooftop garden terrace; expanded space for imaging, labs, materials management, and food preparation; a helicopter landing pad; new non-denominational chapel; and a parking structure to accommodate the growth, with construction on the parking area to start by the end of 2019. The expansion is planned for completion by 2022.

Opinion BY ELLIE RIPLEY

Hot mess? Nuclear fuel can be, and is, handled safely at Diablo Canyon

R

ecently, I saw that someone used the words “hot mess” to describe the storage of used nuclear fuel at Diablo Canyon Power Plant. Hot, yes, when initially removed from the reactor. The word mess can mean more than one thing. In the case of the nuclear fuel, it is not all over the place, “in a mess.” There is a huge misunderstanding about nuclear fuel. Fuel handling is under very strict regulations and is very precise. Nuclear fuel is delivered in fuel assemblies ready to be placed in the reactor, and at the end of four to fourand-a-half years it’s replaced with new fuel assemblies. The fuel is in the form of a pellet about the size of one of the smallest Tootsie Roll candies. Each pellet is stacked vertically in the fuel assembly rods and looks exactly the same when removed from the reactor as they did when being placed in the reactor. Inside the reactor, the fuel assemblies are surrounded by 96,000 gallons of purified, borated water. The reactor is 43 feet tall and weighs 433 tons, with 8-inch-thick walls of low-carbon steel. The reactor itself is surrounded by 138-foot-deep concrete walls. As a tour guide for 23 years at Diablo Canyon, I was given a tour inside during the re-fueling of one of the units.

HODIN

The reactor head was removed, and we could actually see the fuel assemblies in the reactor. Of course, we had training before getting access to this location, plus we all had to have a full body count of the radiation already present in our bodies. Everyone has certain amounts of radiation in their bodies depending on where they live, what they do, and what they eat. When we exited the RCA (radiological controls area), we were checked again to see if there was any increase of radiation in our bodies. A couple of weeks later, we all received a letter stating there was no increase. There are several safety protection measures to take for radiation exposure—time/distance/ shielding. Lead, concrete, and water are all effective shields from radiation exposure. Getting back to the word “hot.” Yes, the fuel is hot (but not forever), and removing fuel assemblies from the reactor is done through a canal filled with water that leads to the fuel handling building, which contains the huge pools of purified/borated water 40 feet deep. The water is purified to remove most of the minerals, as the water itself does not become radioactive—only the particles within. The boron is added to absorb neutrons in the water. The water in the pools is flowing through a closed system to remove the heat from the fuel. Those most unfamiliar with nuclear power don’t know that all the

radioactive fission fragments created by splitting the uranium are different sizes and weights, and have varying half-lives, from seconds to many years. At the end of 10 years, 90 percent of the radiation has decayed; it’s gone. Essentially, all the radioactive fission products will be gone in 600 years. What remains is essentially no more radioactive than natural uranium or thorium. What remains is much slower decaying, and consequently not particularly harmful. The used fuel at Diablo Canyon was transferred to dry storage above the plant where it had been stored in the spent fuel pools for 20 years. Nuclear used fuel stored by commercial power plants or the military has harmed no one. The military has safely shipped used nuclear fuel for years. The dry storage of used fuel is considered safely stored in dry storage for 100 years. It’s up to the federal government to decide what and how to store the used fuel long term. New types of reactors have been developed in which much of the nuclear fuel is used up during the process of making power. Too much erroneous information has been spoken and published about the fuel and storing the fuel as a means of creating fear. ∆ Ellie Ripley is a retired Diablo Canyon Power Plant tour guide and does public outreach for the Californians for Green Nuclear Power.

Thank you for the excellent reporting in the July 4 Pride edition of the New Times. I was delighted to see the indepth coverage of important topics such as LGBTQ-plus mental health and body positivity! While Pride is celebratory, there are many battles still to come as we strive for equity and inclusion. As you mentioned in the issue, the California Healthy Kids Survey results show our LGB and T school-aged youth don’t feel anywhere near as safe as their non-LGBTQ-plus peers, and we need to do better for them. GALA appreciates every friend and ally whose kindness is a preventative factor when it comes to negative mental health outcomes.

Such matters should be beyond the purview of government and criticism from social groups that do not believe women can competently make their own decisions. Ms. Brar is courageous in publicly relating her own story. It must have been difficult for her to to relive those memories, but surely it will benefit others who find themselves in such a difficult situation as well as those who may not understand that women and their families do not need to have these choices made for them by well-meaning legislators. I’d also like to thank Planned Parenthood for supporting women and families in the face of resistance from people who seem to think they know what is best for everyone. Planned Parenthood needs to have public support to continue to do its work effectively. L. R. Erickson Los Osos

The Trump administration, meanwhile, dismisses the claims (“Trump and His Aides Dismiss Reports of Disease and Hunger in Border Facilities,” The New York Times, July 7) While immigration issues are complex, the right response to inhumane conditions imposed upon refugees is not complicated for people of conscience. We must actively resist the inhumane treatment of children and adults in detention. Seventy percent of those in detention are held in privately run, forprofit prisons.

Al Fonzi has hit upon a novel solution to the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area air pollution problem (“Under siege,” July 4): Just move all the Nipomo residents in the path of the plume! That’s much easier than planting vegetation. Let’s follow his logic to its conclusion: 1) San Luis Obispo County owns the portion of the riding area that is emitting the air pollution. 2) SLO County would condemn homes that its degraded property made unhealthy. This may fall under the legal definition of “take.” Therefore, 3) SLO County would need to pay each homeowner fair market value

for their home. The homes on the Nipomo Mesa run about $750,000 to more than $1 million. There are several thousand homes in the plume, according to the Air Pollution Control District map. This buyout would cost $750 million or more, dwarfing the $150 million to $243 million of “economic activity” from off-highway vehicle related purchases. 4) Those homes could not be resold. The county would forever lose millions of dollars in property taxes. 5) The empty homes would become magnets for crime. 6) The people left living next to vacant homes would see their home values plummet. They would want to move away too. I know of people who have moved due to the air pollution. I, for one, would gladly sell my house to the county for fair market value.

Ignore bogus reports Please stop quoting the State Parks’ 2017 bogus Economic Impact Report. There has never been an independent,

unbiased study of the financial impacts of the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area! The deceptive “report” issued by State Parks was conducted by a marketing firm, SMG Consulting, whose president is a self-proclaimed “adventure motorcycle rider.” The survey area included the Monarch Butterfly Preserve, and questions were approved solely by State Parks. It failed to include any negative impacts such as trash, sand removal, or emergency services—sheriff or Cal Fire. Just 909 surveys were returned. Visit Oceano and it’s clear to see the economic reality. People come with their $100,000 RVs and ATVs, and camp. They do not visit local hotels or restaurants. Pismo Beach and Oceano each have approximately 8,000 residents, but the yearly operating budget for Pismo Beach is $38 million. The budget for the Oceano Community Services District is less than $6 million. Cayucos, Avila Beach, Cambria, and Morro Bay are booming towns while Oceano is struggling. We in Oceano would welcome an independent, full-cost accounting report.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AMY HEWES

Genetic trauma

N

ationally and locally, issues of race quite literally afflict our body politic. At home here on our idyllic Central Coast, many white folks—who make up 71 percent of our community—can see racism, whether it comes in the form of frat boys putting on blackface, or, not that many years ago, Cal Poly students hanging a noose on campus. Just days ago, a local man was arrested for threatening to shoot minorities moving into his neighborhood. Police found handguns, rifles, and thousands of rounds of ammunition in his home. While these seem to be infamous but isolated incidents, sometimes we may hear a friend or co-worker utter intentionally or unintentionally disparaging comments about people of color. Worse, we may fear the explosive harm that some racist fanatic may perpetrate on our own neighbors of color. That’s why we’re often reminded of the guilt we share over slavery and the effects of structural inequality. With these realities in mind, I recently attended a workshop sponsored by RACE Matters SLO County on “Preparing to Put in the Work: Intersectionality in Action.” The purpose of the event was to initiate a community-based conversation on how to build a “beloved” community that is welcoming and incorporates

inclusivity and racial justice. I learned how transgenerational trauma, sometimes called “intergenerational suffering,” magnifies the violence done by racism on both the minds and bodies of people of color. In fact, I learned a new word: epigenetics, which is the science of how traumatic events affect us at a molecular level, altering genes that are passed from one generation to the next. In other words, black Americans carry the trauma of slavery in their genes to this day. This concept nearly undid me. With a little research, I found recent studies on epigenetics, transgenerational trauma, and post-traumatic slave syndrome, which widened my understanding of the lasting effects of systemic racism, starting with slavery and followed by lynching, Jim Crow laws, segregation, mass incarceration, and discrimination in housing, education, and employment. Black Americans inherit the kind of hurt that invades their lives, imputing multigenerational maladaptive behaviors that can negatively affect an individual’s productivity and ability to succeed. Transgenerational trauma can be triggered by a relatively small event, a recurring aggression, or the reporting of news that reflects racism and oppression. Leola Dublin Macmillan, a

cultural scholar and co-presenter of the intersectionality workshop, recounted a trigger incident in which she was stopped by the police near Cal Poly for what we’ve come to call “driving while black.” If she goes out for a walk in our town, she has to remember to carry identification in case she draws attention for being out of place and therefore suspicious. If you’re white, do you worry about carrying an ID for such purposes? I doubt it. If you’re black, reactions to your skin color likely trigger ancestral trauma and PTSD-related symptoms going back centuries. Transgenerational trauma isn’t solely the experience of black Americans, of course. In one study, children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors were reportedly overrepresented by 300 percent among referrals to a Canadian psychiatry clinic. Descendants of students at American Indian boarding schools, who were removed from their families, also exhibit the signs of transgenerational trauma. Look at the very recent news and ask yourself: What can we conclude will be the lasting, multigenerational effects of separating children as young as 4 months from their parents at the U.S. border and detaining them in appalling conditions? What can you do about this and other ugly situations? On a governmental level, you can call your representatives, including state Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, state Sen. Bill Monning, Congressman Salud Carbajal, and Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris. (You can find contact information for all our local representatives

at slochamber.org/our-community/ elected%20representatives). What else can be done about the transgenerational trauma and socioeconomic repercussions stemming from slavery? There are large and small steps we can take, none of which are merely symbolic. Gov. Gavin Newsom, for instance, signed the first bill in the nation that outlaws racial discrimination based on hairstyle. No longer can California employers or schools ban Afros, braids, cornrows, and dreadlocks. Before we vote, we should investigate candidates’ records on civil rights and consider their plans for social and racial justice. Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have both introduced major proposals to address racial disparities. Harris’ $100 billion investment plan would reduce the racial gap in homeownership. On a personal level, we can help mend transgenerational trauma through simple acts of kindness, civility, and recognition. If someone you know says something racially offensive, don’t harden their misconceptions by scolding them. Take them aside and ask if they’ve thought through the implications of their words. And when you meet a person of color on our streets or walking the trail on Cerro San Luis, raise your eyes to theirs, smile, and say, “Hello.” You’ll breathe easy, and so, most likely, will they. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action.

Opinion

The Shredder

What’s in a name?

U

h-oh! New Times has stepped in it again! I haven’t seen this much vitriol since we published a meth recipe! Today’s hubbub is because we published drag queen Juicy CuntWhore’s full stage name in a Facebook post celebrating last week’s issue (“Pride 2019,” July 4). “I’m disgusted, outraged, and frightened for all of us! SLO [New] Times is helping to make this trash the norm for impressionable young people! The name alone is out of line for a family newspaper,” concerned citizen Marilyn Moraza exclaimed. Family newspaper, eh? Are you a first-time reader? The cover in question features Juicy strutting her stuff down the runway at a GALA (Gay And Lesbian Alliance of the Central Coast) drag show. “I don’t really doubt posting her full name online was for the purpose of controversy, which really sucks of the New Times,” commenter Gabriel Pasillas wheezed. Bob Childs huffed, “If this name is published in mainstream media and the general public accepts it without outrage, it will be a very short time before the C-word is totally on the table in open public conversation. There is ‘pride.’ Then there is this. I stand with respect for women.” Bob, for the love of God, don’t travel to

Australia, where calling someone a “cunt” is equivalent to “pal.” In response to Bob, Michelle Massakre countered, “Your faux outrage is laughable. Cunt is just a word that has negative connotations. I don’t know Juicy’s motivation for using it, but I see it as her reclaiming it.” Robyn Berry added, “Get it out of your system, Bob! Are you running around the house yelling that?! She just goes by Juicy because she’s juicy. New Times posted her never-used full drag name just to get exactly this controversy going. It sucks and is doing damage, which is the opposite of what this article is about.” Way to suck, New Times! Meanwhile, in a case of whiplashinducing logic, Megan Nicole wrote, “I’d like to point out that Juicy is fully aware of the controversy her name can bring,” and later added, “I can’t say with certainty what their intentions were, but we shouldn’t blame Juicy for the author’s choice.” The author’s choice? What? To publish the stage name she gave herself? This controversy exists solely in the exploding heads of those going berserk over it. We’ve published her name in full before. We did it again because it’s no biggie, and it’s her name! What if we decided Juicy’s name was too controversial or inappropriate to publish? People would complain how we censored a drag queen’s name because we’re

small-minded bigots. GALA’s Michelle Call asked us to change the Facebook posting from CuntWhore to CW. “I’m concerned that is all people will notice about the whole issue and won’t see the amazing content.” Amazing content? Aw, thanks! But the paper’s out, and Juicy’s name is already published in full in the photo caption inside the front page. Unbunch those undies! What’s even odder is SLOqueerdos co-owner Frank Dominguez’s message, which accused us of deliberately drawing controversy. He said we “lacked common sense,” and then threatened us: “I have brought this to the attention of the drag queens at large in SLO, and I think you’ll find that in the future they may be less willing to give you an interview.” Thankfully, not all comments were attacking Juicy and New Times. Steffani Baty wrote, “If my son saw the copy of this paper and pointed it out, it would be a wonderful teaching moment. I would tell him that people are just being themselves and it’s not our place to hate or be mean to them for that. I would show him these awful comments and teach him to stand up and show love instead of hate.” You sound like an amazing mom, Steffani. I wish there were more like you, and more like Juicy CuntWhore, a brave

human being and fearless performer, who New Times reached out to for comments. “It’s my name so I know it’s going to be out there,” she said, mentioning it’s a pun on the women’s fashion brand Juicy Couture. “People who are making the big fuss are used to the taboo, archaic, blasphemy form of the word, but the drag community uses it to express femininity and feeling fierce, like ‘I’m feeling cunty today!’ In Rupaul’s Drag Race, she uses it as an anagram: ‘Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent.’ It’s 2019, and it’s just a word. The word ‘faggot’ was used against us, but most of us have reclaimed it just like ‘queer.’” Does Juicy want us to change our post? “If it was that day [when it was first posted], I would have, but right now, it already happened, there’s already the comments—people telling me I set the Gay Rights movement back, I’m disgusting, I’m shameful, I hate women, I disrespect women—so the damage has already been done, but it’s not your fault, it’s mine, because I chose the name. I’m not going to change my name. I’ve had that drag name forever.” It takes guts to get on stage, Juicy looks amazing on the cover, and if you ask this little shredder, she’s one brave human being. Small minds hate; big minds love. Viva Juicy! ∆ The Shredder lets its freak flag flutter. Send ideas and comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

istening to Rüfüs du Soul’s new album, Solace, I can totally imagine a sea of people, hands over their heads, eyes closed, swaying in unison to the Australian trio’s live electronica and house music beside the Pacific Ocean at the Avila Beach Golf Resort next Thursday, July 18 (gates at 5 p.m.; 18-and-older; $39.50 to $97.50 at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com). Those lush sounds are created by Tyrone Lindqvist (vocals, guitar), Jon George (keyboards), and James Hunt (drums). Solace is the band’s third studio album following their platinum-selling debut, Atlas (2013), and their platinumselling follow-up, Bloom (2016).

We put all our hearts into making this record.” Over its nine-year existence, Rüfüs du Soul has emerged as one of the world’s preeminent live electronic acts, and it’s

“Vice,” “Mama’s Broken Heart,” “The House That Built Me,” “White Liar,” “Heart Like Mine,” and “Over You.” She’s won multiple ACM, CMA, and Grammy awards. In fact, in 2018 she was named ACM Female Vocalist of the Year for the ninth consecutive year, surpassing Reba McEntire. Special guest Randy Houser opens the show. On Thursday, July 18, see venerated local performer Monte Mills and the Lucky Horseshoe Band in the Mission Square at 7 p.m. Mills’ band is celebrating its 43rd year, playing mostly country music but also ’50s and ’60s rock, 1940s big band music, and gospel. Amazing vocal harmony act Home Free plays the Fort Frontier Stage at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. This country a cappella act is stunning! In the Chumash Grandstand, see Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo with Melissa Etheridge (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $26 to $71 at midstatefair.com). Benatar and Giraldo have been making music together for four decades, having met in 1979 in a small rehearsal room at SIR Studios in New York City. “We Belong,” “Invincible,” “Love Is A Battlefield,” “Promises In The Dark,” and “We Live For Love” are a few of their hits. Etheridge’s incredible career includes 25 million albums sold, five platinum and three multi-platinum records, 15 Grammy Award nominations and two wins. She’s touring in support of The Medicine Show, her recently released new album that explores universal themes of renewal, reconciliation, reckoning, compassion, and healing. “Calling the album The Medicine Show puts straight up, front and center, that this is about health, wellness, cannabis, this new thought, new paradigm, however you want to talk about it, however you want to understand it,” Etheridge said in press materials. “It influences every song on the album. We’re not afraid of this anymore. We’ve come a long way.” Let the fair begin!

Correction

The June 27 arts article, “Homecoming,” should have stated that artist Tony Girolo attended high school in Geneva when his family moved there for a time when Girolo’s stepfather was working abroad as a professor. Girolo had studio space at the Bunker in SLO, an arrangement the artist said ended about nine months ago. In the same article, the caption titled “Representational” should read, “Portraits: In addition to his abstract work, artist Tony Girolo also paints portraits, like friend Coco Herda in Portrait of Coco.” ∆ —Caleb Wiseblood

The Liar brings poetry and laughter to Morro Bay PHOTO COURTESY OF IAIN MACADAM

hat really constitutes a lie? Like a game of telephone, the truth gets a little blurrier each go-round in the farcical play The Liar, which playwright David Ives (Words, Words, Words) modernized in 2010 from Pierre Corneille’s (Le Cid) adaptation in 1644, taken from from Juan Ruiz de Alarcón’s (La Verdad Sospechosa) 1634 version.

Things get real Shakespearean, real fast.

LYING LIAR Who’s telling the truth and who’s lying in By The Sea Productions’ version of comical farce The Liar? The full cast is, from left to right, standing, Isabelle/Sabine (Jean Miller), Geronte (Larry Barnes), Dorante (Nik Coffey), Cliton (Ed Cardoza), Alcippe (Travis Horton), and Philliste (Chris Blicha). Seated: Clarice (Bailey Satterfield, left) and Lucrece (Deirdre Loy).

Makes your head spin a bit, doesn’t it? Well, have no fear, as the play has only gotten funnier over time. The show— which feels a bit like Monty Python meets The Importance of Being Earnest meets Much Ado About Nothing—made its By the Sea Productions debut July 5 at St. Peter’s By The Sea Episcopal Church in Morro Bay. Set in Paris in the 1600s, the comedy focuses on Dorante (Nicholas Coffey, Cuesta College’s Man of La Mancha), the quasi-villain of the play, who, to put it simply, is a compulsive liar. On his first day in town, he meets Cliton (Ed Cardoza, Wine Country Theatre’s Moonlight and Magnolias), a man looking for work who is physically incapable of telling anything

but the truth. Shenanigans ensue in short order when Dorante runs into friends Clarice (Bailey Satterfield) and Lucrece (Deiredre Loy), promptly falls in love with one, but confuses their names. You see where this is going. Add in a father desperate for Dorante to wed; a jealous fiancĂŠ of Clarice, Alcippe, who happens to be a childhood friend of Dorante; identical twin servants; and a long-lost son, and things get real Shakespearean real fast. Oh, and all the lines are written in pentameter, aka poetic verse. It’s all good fun and nonsense, with an extra heaping of “she said, he saidâ€? thrown in for good measure. Coffey and Chris Blicha, who plays Alcippe’s friend, Philliste, are excellent foils for one another, and Travis Horton (Silent Sky) as the jealous Alcippe takes things up a notch. Here’s a lie and a truth for you, dear reader, do with them what you will: In the world of The Liar, Violet rhymes with toilet, and this is definitely not a play that will make you laugh out loud. ∆ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley is crossing her fingers and toes.

Its big switcheroo is too obviously projected, Peter is too gullible (where are your “spidey senses,” dude?), and the entire affair lacks the coherence of its predecessor. There’s nothing I can say that will stop fans from flocking to the theater. The film’s already made more that $90 million.

story that follows the events of Avengers: Endgame. Peter Parker (Tom Holland) joins besties Ned (Jacob Batalon) and MJ (Zendaya) on a European vacation, hoping for a little heroics-free rest and relaxation, but when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) comes calling, Peter works to uncover the mystery of otherworldly attacks plaguing Europe. Maybe I’m suffering from comic book movie overload, but this new Spider-Man installment just didn’t “wow” me the way it seems to for most reviewers and audiences. Rotten Tomatoes rates it a 91 percent with critics and 96 percent with audiences. It’s entertaining enough, but I don’t see what all the hype is about. It’s just another bigbudget comic book adventure. Peter is mourning the loss of Iron Man and questioning Tony Stark’s belief in him. He’s just a kid, after all, not a “real” Avenger. All he really wants to do is go on his school trip to Europe, where he hopes to generate some sparks with MJ. Meanwhile, a new threat is menacing Earth. We see Nick Fury and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) investigating an unnatural storm generated by forces they learn are called an Elemental. As the storm rises again, a powerful new superhero named Quentin Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal) shows up to defeat the Elemental. To remind us that Peter’s just a high school kid, there’s some teen drama between him and some classmates. Another boy is flirting with MJ, and even nerdy Ned manages to find a girlfriend in overachiever Betty Brant (Angourie Rice) while Peter seems to be getting nowhere with MJ. When the class arrives in Venice, Italy, another Elemental shows up in the form of water, menacing everyone. Beck arrives to save the day again, and Peter works with him. Fury arrives, scolding Peter for avoiding his calls and giving him Stark’s glasses, which contain an artificial intelligence system called E.D.I.T.H., which controls Stark Enterprises’ weapons systems. We also learn that Beck comes from a different reality and that the Elementals killed his family. Even though Peter at first rejects Fury’s call for him to fight impending Elemental attacks, Fury finds a way to involve him anyway by redirecting his school trip

When Bonnie’s family goes on a road trip, Forky takes off, so Woody and a few other toys go in search of him. The Forky stuff is just the tip of the iceberg though; there’s so much going on in this movie. And in my opinion, Forky gets upstaged by at least four other new characters. I’ll start with the villain, a 1950s pullstring doll named Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks), who Woody and Forky encounter in an antique store on their journey back to Bonnie. Just in case the creepy doll vibe isn’t already eerie enough, “Midnight, the Stars, and You”—you know, the ballroom song from The Shining—starts playing as Gabby Gabby sits in a baby carriage, steered by her posse of demented ventriloquist

BUDDY FLICK Vic (Dave Bautista, left), a hard-nosed detective, enlists his Uber driver, mild-mannered Stu (Kumail Nanjiani), to track down a terrorist, in the comedy action film Stuber. MOVIES from page 42 dummies. I won’t reveal her insidious intentions, but as with most memorable villains, things aren’t so black and white. The film does a great job of exploring her side of the story, and we come to sympathize with Gabby Gabby’s plight, just not the means she uses to rectify it. Some other great new characters include a perfectly cast Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves), a Canadian daredevil action figure; and the duo of Ducky and Bunny (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, respectively), a couple of plush toys stuck on the prize rack at a carnival. Those three collectively deliver the best punch lines in the movie, hands down. But in all seriousness, the most badass character in the film is series veteran Bo Peep (Annie Potts), who gets a well-deserved return to the franchise. When I first heard Toy Story 4 was in the works, I felt betrayed and bewildered. Toy Story 3 had such a finality to it, why try to follow a nearly perfect ending to the series? So why keep going? Well, money of course! Little did I know Pixar’s more noble intentions for this installment, which surprisingly opens the door to countless more adventures—for some characters more than others. The final product isn’t the petty cashgrab I was expecting, and believe it or not, I actually enjoyed it even more than Toy Story 3. Fight me!

In essence, the Russians are trying to secretly re-penetrate the closed gate to the Upside Down, with a plasma-looking weapon. The gate isn’t totally open yet, but the two worlds are starting to intermingle once again. I don’t want to spoil much more about the plot than this. Episode by episode, the mystery unfolds in a really spectacular way. I was critical of Stranger Things’ season two for having a slower pace and too many story lines. This new season also has a slow build and seemingly dozens of story arcs—for even more characters! But it’s much better executed this time around. Everything weaves together into a cohesive whole, and the story progresses like a riveting spy novel, with special effects. The Duffer Brothers smartly lean heavily this season on the charisma of their characters, who are growing up before our eyes. The supporting cast delivers great performances, too, from Maxine’s brother, DREAM TEAM Billy (a fantastic Dacre The kids from Montgomery), who 1980s Hawkins, becomes the human face Indiana, are back of the villainous Upside for a third season Down, to eccentric investigator Murray of Stranger Bauman (Brett Gelman), Things.

Flintstones—when man and dinosaur coexisted in anachronistic harmony. The T-Rex tilts his head toward me as I get closer to his allotted domain, located on the banks of Mission Creek. There’s some rope blocking me from advancing any farther (as if I would even try). The behemoth opens his mouth (or should I say beak?) and lets out a mighty roar before lunging in my general direction. I only back up a little bit, I swear. I’m too busy worrying about the other dinosaurs—all of which are herbivores— to fear for my own life. I wonder which one is gonna be dinner tonight? I ponder as I scan the rest of the exhibit’s inhabitants— which include a stegosaurus (steak-osaurus), triceratops (TRI-cera-TIP), and parasaurolophus (pear-a-saur—naa, I got nothin’). Their inevitable doom aside— whether by T-Rex or asteroid—these creatures are wondrous to behold for dinosaur lovers of all ages.

make our way back to the museum’s main lot, we can’t help but notice members of the Santa Barbara Audubon Society (SBAS) and some of their feathered friends hanging out just outside the Prehistoric Forest’s exit. Eyes in the Sky is the name of the program, which features seven birds of prey that serve as “education ambassadors” to the public. Each of these birds were rescued and rehabilitated, but they can no longer survive in the wild due to permanent disabilities. Kisa, a peregrine falcon, for example, was found in Rancho Palos Verdes with a bullet in her shoulder. SBAS adopted her from South Bay Wildlife Rehab in 2011. We also meet Max, a great horned owl, who was found as an orphaned nestling (too young to leave the nest) in 1998. Raised by humans, Max became irreversibly imprinted and can’t be released back into the wild. But since his wild instincts remain, Max has become a father figure to other orphaned owlets the SBAS has adopted (raising more than 70 for re-release back into the wild). Next on the docket is Butterflies Alive, another outdoor exhibit included with museum admission. My friends and I stroll through the beautiful garden pavilion, which houses nearly a thousand live butterflies. I stand still for a moment, extend my arms, and open my palms, inviting the butterflies to flutter around me. I don’t think they bite, but part of me hopes one of them is radioactive and I get bit—inevitably becoming a butterfly superhero. Δ Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood is Butterfly-Man.

Food OPEN FOR BUSINESS On opening day, June 29, Talley Farms brought out their yellow bins of in-season, organic fruits and veggies straight from the farm for sale, as local vendors joined in the fun and people picnicked on the grass with live music by The Catalina Eddy Four.

Beautiful bounty Find a whole rainbow of foods in one place at Talley Farms’ winery, farm stand, and berry patch u-pick

Y

ears ago, while working at Bay Area farmers’ markets for a Watsonville-based farm, I learned that the food sold at farm stands and farmers’ markets is usually picked fresh that morning. By the time the sun comes up and the produce is arranged on the farm-stand tables, the quality is so superior to store-bought that you wonder why people shop anywhere else. There’s nothing like the whole experience of shopping straight from the farm—the feeling is right, like handwriting a letter on quality paper and sending it with a real stamp. Talley Farms and Talley Vineyards in Arroyo Grande make it easy for me to get my fix of fresh and organic everything. The family farm is known for its CSA boxes and estate wines, but it doesn’t stop there. This summer marks the third year that the farm has opened up a weekend stand and berry u-pick patch. On June 29, Talley held a farm-stand celebration, and I took my family to check it out. We already subscribe to their weekly farm share because we dig eating what’s local, organic, and in season.

“This is the first time that we had a harvest market [celebration], but this is our third year for the farm stand,” said Andrea Shapiro Chavez, manager of the Fresh Harvest CSA program. Her favorite Talley farm item is the “sweet bi-color, non-GMO corn.” She and her husband, Randy—who works quality control at Talley—were warmly greeting the meandering visitors who came to the stand on opening day. “We started the farm stand to bring together the farm and the winery,” Shapiro Chavez said, adding that there was a need for local produce, and Talley felt most comfortable in the farm atmosphere. The road to Talley is one of those overthe-river-and-through-the-woods Edna Valley day drives, so don’t be in a rush. It’s worth the trek, as Talley is the final stop of nine local farms and ranches on the newly promoted SLO County Farm Trail, an “agri-CULTURAL” experience (as coined by FARMstead ED founder Lynette Sonne, who attended Talley’s opening celebration). The produce at Talley is picked from their 1,500 acres of surrounding farm,

The Talley Farm Stand at Talley Vineyards is open June 29 to Nov. 3, every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It offers fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, a u-pick berry patch, a pumpkin patch (in autumn), wine tasting at the winery, picnicking on the grass, and farm and winery tours. Talley Farms is located on 3031 Lopez Drive, Arroyo Grande, on the way to Lopez Lake.

7 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The farm uses university-trained agronomists, a full-time engineer, sustainable farming practices, and only non-GMO seeds. Many of the fields are USDA-organic certified, but even in the conventional fields, the Talleys use organic herbicides and pesticides. The Talley family farming tradition dates back to 1948 when Oliver Talley started growing broccoli, beans, cauliflower, peppers, and tomatoes as the first five crops. The farm was passed down to Oliver’s son Don in 1963, and youngest son Kenneth in 1963. In the ’60s and ’70s, the family bought more land, built their first cooler, and started the shipping process. When Kenneth passed away in 1976, Oliver retired and Don became president of Talley Farms until 2006. Don and his wife, Rosemary—with the help of Brian, Todd, and Ryan Talley—have been hands-on, innovating and growing the farm ever since. “When I started the farm-box program, most people didn’t even know Talley had a farm,” Shapiro Chavez said. “The farm has been here for over 70 years, and the

Shapiro Chavez said of the Talley family. “They’re third generation and now fourth generation working here.” In 2004, Brian and Johnine Talley established the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers, a grant program assisting SLO County ag workers and their families. In 1993, the Talley family established the Marianne Talley Foundation, funding scholarships for college-bound AG High School athletes. When it comes to their produce, word on the street is that their kiwis, bell peppers, and Brussels sprouts have made Talley Farms pretty famous. At the farm-stand celebration, my son Luke had already picked out his cantaloupe, so heavy and sweet we could smell it from the bottom of the bag. I had to get a hold of those French beans, as Shapiro Chavez said they may not be around too long. We paid for our u-pick containers and headed over to the rows of berries. I was glad each row was clearly labeled with yellow signs. We made sure to pick the gold, sweet, floral-tasting sunshine raspberries that were soft and easy to pull. The olallieberries were more sweet than tart and the perfect cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. The fuzzy little black loganberries were soft and juicy. One of our biggest highlights of the day was following all the rows down

and around to the long, green, tree-like mulberry “bushes” where each of us tried our first mulberries. “Make sure you get the dark ones,” Shapiro Chavez had said. “Could these be mulberries?” we wondered as we discovered the long, skinny, dark purple mulberries that looked like an unfortunate blackberry had been stretched in a torture chamber.

D INE ’N’ DISH Nautical Cowboy’s coconut shrimp The other night, my husband and I realized we had visited the Nautical Cowboy so early that we were in the happy hour zone, which consequently is our happy-place zone as well. Before we shared a bowl of buttery cioppino, we ordered an appetizer of coconut shrimp served with a Thaistyle chili dipping sauce. There were six pieces of crispy, sweet, wild Texan coconut shrimp. I really wished that Nautical Cowboy could have lassoed me at least 20 more so I could have settled with coconut shrimp as my entree. The delicate bites nearly melted in my mouth, and the ambrosial, tropical chili sauce just nailed it as an accompanying flavor burst. We paired it with a Ramón Bilbao albariño, and sitting there in the beautifully decorated, historic Carlton Hotel, with impeccable service and cool air conditioning, it was worth the stop before seeing the new Pavorotti documentary at the Galaxy. The Nautical Cowboy is located at 6005 El Camino Real, Atascadero, (805) 461-5100. Happy Hour is daily from 4 to 6 p.m. (each beer, cider, cocktail, food, and wine item is $2 off); coconut shrimp is $14 regularly and $12 for happy hour. ∆ New Times contributor Beth Giuffre loves lassoing shrimp.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: What symbol best represents your deepest desire? Testify by going to freewillastrology.com and clicking on “email Rob.” ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): You’re in the Land of Green Magic. That’s potentially very good news, but you must also be cautious. Why? Because in the Land of Green Magic, the seeds of extraneous follies and the seeds of important necessities both grow extra fast. Unless you are a careful weeder, useless stuff will spring up and occupy too much space. So be firm in rooting out the blooms that won’t do you any good. Be aggressive in nurturing only the very best and brightest.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Please don’t try to relax. Don’t shy away from challenges. Don’t apologize for your holy quest or tone down your ambition or stop pushing to get better. Not now, anyway, Libra. Just the opposite, in fact. I urge you to pump up the volume on your desires. Be even bigger and bolder and braver. Take maximum advantage of the opportunities that are arising, and cash in on the benevolent conspiracies that are swirling in your vicinity. Now is one of those exceptional moments when tough competition is actually healthy for you, when the pressure to outdo your previous efforts can be tonic and inspiring.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Eight years ago, researchers in Kerala, India, went to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple and climbed down into centuries-old vaults deep beneath the main floor. They found a disorganized mess of treasure in the form of gold and precious gems. There were hundreds of chairs made from gold, baskets full of gold coins from the ancient Roman Empire, and a 4-foot-high solid statue of a god, among multitudinous other valuables. I like bringing these images to your attention, Taurus, because I have a theory that if you keep them in your awareness, you’ll be more alert than usual to undiscovered riches in your own life and in your own psyche. I suspect you are closer than ever before to unearthing those riches.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Children need to learn certain aptitudes at certain times. If they don’t, they may not be able to master those aptitudes later in life. For example, if infants don’t get the experience of being protected and cared for by adults, it will be hard for them to develop that capacity as toddlers. This is a good metaphor for a developmental phase that you Geminis are going through. In my astrological opinion, 2019 and 2020 are critical years for you to become more skilled at the arts of togetherness and collaboration—to upgrade your abilities so as to get the most out of your intimate relationships. How are you doing with this work so far?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Vantablack is a material made of carbon nanotubes. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the darkest stuff on the planet. No black is blacker than Vantablack. It reflects a mere 0.036 percent of the light that shines upon it. Because of its unusual quality, it’s ideal for use in the manufacture of certain sensors, cameras, and scientific instruments. Unfortunately, an artist named Anish Kapoor owns exclusive rights to use it in the art world. No other artists are allowed to incorporate Vantablack into their creations. I trust you will NOT follow Kapoor’s selfish example in the coming weeks. In my astrological opinion, it’s crucial that you share your prime gifts, your special skills, and your unique blessings with the whole world. Do not hoard!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Hi, my name is Rob Brezsny, and I confess that I am addicted to breathing air, eating food, drinking water, indulging in sleep, and getting high on organic, free-trade, slavery-free dark chocolate. I also confess that I am powerless over these addictions. Now I invite you to be inspired by my silly example and undertake a playful but serious effort to face up to your own fixations. The astrological omens suggest it’s a perfect moment to do so. What are you addicted to? What habits are you entranced by? What conditioned responses are you enslaved to? What traps have you agreed to be snared by? The time is right to identify these compulsions, then make an audacious break for freedom.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When cherries are nearing the end of their ripening process, they are especially vulnerable. If rain falls on them during those last few weeks, they can rot or split, rendering them unmarketable. So cherry-growers hire helicopter pilots to hover over their trees right after it rains, using the downdraft from the blades to dry the valuable little fruits. It may seem like overkill, but it’s the method that works best. I advise you to be on the lookout for similar protective measures during the climactic phase of your personal ripening process. Your motto should be to take care of your valuables by any means necessary.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I can’t decide whether to compare your imminent future to a platypus, kaleidoscope, patchwork quilt, or Swiss Army knife. From what I can tell, your adventures could bring you random jumbles or melodic mélanges—or a blend of both. So I’m expecting provocative teases, pure flukes, and multiple options. There’ll be crazy wisdom, alluring messes, and unclassifiable opportunities. To ensure that your life is more of an intriguing riddle than a confusing maze, I suggest that you stay closely attuned to what you’re really feeling and thinking, and communicate that information with tactful precision.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Every year, thousands of people all over the world go to hospital emergency rooms seeking relief from kidney stones. Many of the treatments are invasive and painful. But in recent years, a benign alternative has emerged. A peer-reviewed article in a scientific journal presented evidence that many patients spontaneously pass their kidney stones simply by riding on roller coasters. I doubt that you’ll have a literal problem like kidney stones in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. But I do suspect that any psychological difficulties you encounter can be solved by embarking on thrilling adventures akin to riding on roller coasters.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In his book The Histories, ancient Greek historian Herodotus told the story of a six-year war between the armies of the Medes and the Lydians in an area that today corresponds to Turkey. The conflict ended suddenly on a day when a solar eclipse occurred. Everyone on the battlefield got spooked as the light unexpectedly dimmed, and commanders sought an immediate cease to the hostilities. In the spirit of cosmic portents precipitating practical truces, I suggest you respond to the upcoming lunar eclipse on July 16 to 17 with overtures of peace and healing and amnesty. It’ll be a good time to reach out to any worthwhile person or group from whom you have been alienated.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): My astrological colleague Guru Gwen believes that right now Aquarians should get scolded and penalized unless they agree to add more rigor and discipline to their rhythms. On the other hand, my astrological colleague Maestro Madelyn feels that Aquarians need to have their backs massaged, their hands held, and their problems listened to with grace and empathy. I suppose that both Gwen and Madelyn want to accomplish the same thing, which is to get you back on track. But personally, I’m more in favor of Madelyn’s approach than Gwen’s.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): As a self-taught rebel poet with few formal credentials, I may not have much credibility when I urge you to get yourself better licensed and certified and sanctioned. But according to my analysis of the astrological omens, the coming months will be a favorable time for you to make plans to get the education or training you’re lacking; to find out what it would mean to become more professional, and then become more professional; to begin pursuing the credentials that will earn you more power to fulfill your dreams. ∆
