Defendants contesting settlement in dog attack lawsuit

FILE PHOTO BY HENRY BRUINGTON

V

ictims of a 2016 dog attack in Grover Beach that killed one person and severely injured another have reached a tentative settlement with one of the defendants in a civil lawsuit, but others named in the suit are asking a judge to consider scuttling it. According to court documents, lawyers representing Betty Long, the 85-year-old woman mauled in the attack, and the family of 64-year-old David Fear, who was killed, said they reached a $500,000 settlement with two landlords who rented the home where former Grover Beach Police Department officer Alex Geiger kept Neo, a trained police K-9 he’d worked with while employed with the city of Exeter’s police department before moving to Grover Beach and becoming a police officer there. According to investigators, Neo escaped from the home’s backyard in February 2016 and attacked Long as she was walking her dog. Fear tried to help Long and was also attacked by the dog. Fear later died from his injuries. Lawyers for Geiger, the city of Exeter, and the city of Grover Beach, which are also named as defendants in the suit, have contested the settlement with Geiger’s landlords, Christopher and Monica Belavic, arguing that there was a lack of information to prove that it was made in good faith and would be fair to remaining defendants. Specifically, filings from those attorneys noted that the settlement did not include proof of the $500,000 limit on the rental home’s insurance policy, nor did it explain how the settlement money would be divided between the two parties. In response, lawyers for the Belavics said that the settlement would be divided into three parts, with one third of the money going to Long, another

third going to Fear’s family, and the last third to cover common legal costs. The parties will make their arguments for or against the settlement to SLO County Superior Court Judge Barry LaBarbera on Aug. 16. LaBarbera will decide whether the settlement goes through and if the $500,000 can be subtracted from damages a jury might levy against the POSSIBLE SETTLEMENT Victims of a 2016 dog attack in Grover Beach that injured on person and killed another reached a settlement other defendants should with one of multiple defendants named in a civil lawsuit filed last year. the case go to court.

According Geiger is also facing multiple felony charges in to court filings, Long claimed she incurred connection with the 2016 dog attack, including more than $10.2 million in damages including manslaughter and failure to maintain control medical bills, property damage, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

La Bellasera Hotel sues Paso over land swap

sued the city, calling a recent land swap deal struck by Paso and an incoming hotelier “a backroom deal” for the “private benefit” of the company. The swap, executed by the Paso Robles City Council last September and modified on June 5, gave Bay Area-based firm Zenique Hotels most of a vacant city parcel on Theater Drive (next door to La Bellasera) in exchange for a Zeniqueowned property with the River Lodge Motel (also next to La Bellasera). Zenique submitted plans in 2016 to build a four-story hotel in the place of the River Lodge Motel, but local groups like the Paso Robles Historic Society and Paso Robles Main Street Association spoke out against demolishing the 1950s-era motel. “[Community members] emphasized the importance of maintaining the existing historic motel building and motel sign, as contributors to the unique historic character of the community,” a Paso city staff report for a June 5 council meeting read. The City Council scrapped that project, but subsequent negotiations led to the land swap—and a June 5 city approval of a four-story Hyatt Place Hotel on Zenique’s newly acquired, formerly city property. “One of the conditions to the property exchange is city approval of a hotel project ... to be conveyed to Zen,” the city staff report stated. “Once the property exchange has been

completed, the city will move forward to a community input process on the best reuse options for the River Lodge Motel.” Kevin Bierl, owner of La Bellasera Hotel and Hampton Inn, opposed the property exchange and hotel project since they were proposed, according to his lawsuit filed in SLO County Superior Court on July 6. The suit states that he was denied a previously promised opportunity to purchase the city’s parcel himself. Bierl is asking a judge to nix the land swap and Zenique project, alleging that the negotiations weren’t done transparently, that Paso failed to analyze the environmental impacts, and that the exchange benefited Zenique more than the city. After it approved the land swap in September, the City Council asked for property appraisals on both parcels, which found them to be of closeto-equal value. But in the lawsuit, Bierl argues the appraisals were inaccurate because they assumed both parcels would be developed into hotels. “In the end, the city would approve a lopsided deal to give away to Zen its vacant and fully developable Theater Drive parcel in exchange for Zen’s presumably undevelopable River Lodge [Motel] parcel,” the lawsuit states. In response to the allegations, Paso City Attorney Iris Yang told New Times that the lawsuit was filed too late, after a six-month NEWS continued page 5

window to challenge the September property exchange. “There’s a basic misunderstanding of the facts,” Yang said. “We’ll file an appropriate response.” Yang also noted that the city modified the exchange agreement on June 5, which allowed the city to retain about a halfacre of its property. She also said the property appraisals were requested by the City Council after it had entered the exchange agreement. “The execution of the agreement wasn’t contingent on getting an appraisal,” she said. Bierl’s attorney, Paul Beard II, did not return a request for comment from New Times before press time. A case management conference is set for Aug. 27. —Peter Johnson

County enters design contract for Bob Jones Trail missing link The long-desired missing link of the Bob Jones Trail to connect San Luis Obispo with Avila Beach is one small step closer to the finish line. SLO County supervisors unanimously approved a $1 million contract with the Wallace Group on July 10 to deliver engineering, design, and environmental services for the 4.4-mile bike and pedestrian path, which would start at the Octagon Barn near SLO and merge with the existing trail on Ontario Road. Securing the funds to move the trail project forward has proven difficult over the years, but through a mix of grants and parks funding, the county was finally able to pool the resources needed for the design phase. The supervisors’ decision received resounding support from one future user of the trail. “If you give the Bob Jones Trail this money, I could ride my bike on the Bob Jones Trail to the beach from my house easily, on a trail that’s only for bikes and pedestrians,” 7-year-old Cadence Flickinger said during public comment. Design work on the trail is expected to take roughly a year, according to the county. It includes mapping three bridges over San Luis Creek, a Highway 101 undercrossing, and obtaining approval from property owners along the path. “We have a few hurdles for where we’re going to place the trail,” Public Works Director Colt Esenwein said.

Esenwein said the county is applying for state transportation grants to help offset the estimated $10 million in construction costs. The Bob Jones Trail was given top priority by the county out of six bike trail projects ranked for grant funding. “We’re hopeful the Bob Jones Trail will compete well,” he said. —Peter Johnson

Women’s March SLO founder announces run for Morro Bay City Council

Two seats on the Morro Bay City Council and the mayor position are up for grabs, and the co-founder of the Women’s March SLO, Dawn Addis, is the fi rst to announce her intent to run for a council seat. “I think city government has the particular ability to affect people’s day-today lives. I’m interested in being a part of that and engaging in my local community to work on the future of our city,” Addis told New Times. Addis currently holds a seat on the Morro Bay Citizens Finance Committee. She said she took the position last year in March to better understand her city government. She also works for San Luis Coastal Unified School District as a teacher on special assignment for English learner and intervention programs. “Working with programs that affect children, working with city government, working with the Women’s March is all about taking the forward view. Thinking from this point forward what is it that we want for our society and what role can I have to make sure we create the best future for us,” Addis said. If elected, Addis said she not only brings a listening ear to the table, she also wants to represent those in the community who are unrepresented. John Headding and Matt Makowetski currently hold council seats that will be on the November ballot. Mayor Jamie Irons, nearing the end of his third term, is not running for a fourth. He previously held a planning commissioner position and was the controls technician at the Morro Bay Power Plant prior to running for mayor in 2012. His campaign focused on updating the city’s general plan. “Primarily, at the time, being on the Planning Commission, it was very apparent that some of the struggles of

the city were planning. That’s what cities do, good planning leads to good results,” Irons told New Times. “And our general plan and local coastal plan was outdated for almost 30 years.” Over the course of Irons’ six years as mayor, he and the city have been working on the process of updating the general and local coastal plans. Both documents will go before the City Council in September and October of this year. The city is also continuing its work to replace its antiquated wastewater treatment plant with the proposed water reclamation facility. When his term ends, Irons said he and his wife will still be active community members. “There’s certainly the opportunity to contribute to the community whether or not you’re an elected official. We’ll definitely be involved and want to contribute; it’s part of being a good citizen,” Irons said. —Karen Garcia

SLO County saw rise in hate crimes last year California experienced a double-digit increase in the number of hate crimes between 2016 and 2017, and SLO County was no exception. According to a new report from the California Department of Justice, a total of 15 hate crime offenses were reported in the county last year, five times more than were reported in 2016. The hate crime offenses were connected with nine reported hate crime incidents in 2017. One incident can include multiple offenses, according to the report. The majority of those incidents were nonviolent, according to data obtained from the DOJ. Five of them involved the destruction of property or graffiti. That includes the May 2017 vandalism of Templeton High School, where unknown suspects caused thousands of dollars of damage and spray-painted racial slurs

and swastikas on the schools walls. That same month Mayor Heidi Harmon reported that an unknown suspect burned a rainbow flag and slashed a yard sign promoting civil rights displayed outside her home. Violence-related hate crimes last year included one report from the SLO Police Department involving a white suspect who reportedly used anti-AfricanAmerican slurs during an assault in SLO in April, and an aggravated assault reported to by the state Department of Parks and Recreation at the Oceano Dunes in June that was reportedly motivated by anti-LGBTQ bias. Of the nine total incidents in 2017, four were reported in the SLOPD’s jurisdiction, another three were reported in SLO County Sheriff’s Department jurisdiction. The remaining incidents were reported by State Parks and the Cal Poly Police Department. The majority of the hate crime incidents that year involved antiblack or anti-African-American sentiment, according to the data. The DOJ’s report also stated that a total of three hate crime cases were referred to the SLO County District Attorney’s Office in 2017. The office filed all three cases, one of which has already resulted in a conviction. SLO County isn’t alone when it comes to dealing with an increase in reported hate crimes. According to the DOJ’s report, hate crime incidents increased by 17.4 percent statewide between 2016 and 2017. According to the same report, 383 hate crime cases were referred to county district attorneys throughout the state, who filed 271 of them, resulting in 113 convictions at the time of the report’s release.

Sticking with the union? Local public sector unions prepare for the impact of the Supreme Court’s Janus decision

T

he recent U.S. Supreme Court Decision in the case of Janus v. AFSCME, was a blow to the nation’s public sector labor unions. But according to Patrick McNamara, it was far from unexpected. “We’ve been monitoring the case,” said McNamara, general manager for the San Luis Obispo County Employees Association (SLOCEA). “We prepared for the worst-case scenario.” The court’s 5-4 ruling on June 27 forbids public sector union’s from collecting so-called “fair share” fees from nonunion workers who benefit from the results of collective bargaining. For decades, unions were able to collect those fees from nonunion members, arguing that those employees shouldn’t get a “free-ride” by benefiting from the fruits of a union’s negotiations and services without paying for them. But the court’s majority opinion stated that requiring nonunion employees to pay the fees violated the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. “We conclude that this arrangement violates the free speech rights of nonmembers by compelling them to subsidize private speech on matters of substantial public concern,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the court’s majority. The decision will have a direct financial

impact on public sector unions like SLOCEA, which represents more than 1,700 county employees across multiple departments. Without the ability to collect the fair share fees from nonmembers, McNamara said he anticipates an immediate 8.4 percent drop in the union’s revenue. However, he noted that the union already represents a large number of county employees, which may soften the blow of the ruling’s impact. “It’s going to be a small dip in revenue,” he said. “We are hopeful and don’t expect any kind of drastic change.” Still, McNamara said SLOCEA took proactive measures in anticipation of losing the fair share fees, including indefinitely implementing a hiring freeze. “We are a very small office and we do a lot with very little,” he said. “We are going to direct all our resources toward continuing to provide representation services for our members.” Debra Stakes, president of the Cuesta College Federation of Teachers (CCFT), said her union also tried to prepare for the Janus ruling, which she anticipates will result in a “substantial” loss of monthly income for the organization. She said that the union’s executive board is already having discussions about where they might be able to cut the budget. Raising fees for members, however, was

not on the table. “We are certainly not raising our dues,” Stakes said. “We are just going to try and get by with less money.” The CCFT’s parent organization, the American Federation of Teachers, also committed to not raising dues in the wake of the Janus decision. Shortly after the decision, the union pushed back on the majority’s reasoning behind the decision, claiming that the court upended four decades of legal precedent and weaponized the First Amendment to hurt working people. “This is a dark day for U.S. jurisprudence,” American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said in a written statement. “A day when the thirst for power trampled the need of the communities and people who serve them.” The comments echoed the dissent penned by U.S. Supreme Court Justice

espite a record year for grapes, San Luis Obispo County’s agricultural industry tapered off in 2017 compared to 2016, declining 0.5 percent in gross value to $925 million, according to the county’s annual crop report. In 2016, crop values spiked $101 million, or 12 percent, over 2015. That upward trend didn’t continue last year. Erratic weather and labor shortages challenged local farmers, according to the report and industry members who spoke to New Times. “It was a fairly flat year,” SLO County Agricultural Commissioner Martin Settevendemie said. “In general, we’ve been hearing from the agricultural industry over time that labor is an issue. ... We did [also] have some substantial rains that inhibited some of the growers in planting, tending to, or even harvesting their crops.” Even so, wine grapes hit a second straight record-high year for value at $268 million—an increase of 10 percent over last year. Strawberries came in a close second at $228 million, a slight decline in value from 2016. Cattle numbers are back on an upward trajectory after the drought devastated herd levels, but they’re still well below what they were historically. Meanwhile, vegetable production was down 20 percent, and nursery stock value

hit a 10-year low of $83 million. “We’re producing well over 100 crops in the county,” Settevendemie said. “When one is up, one is inevitably down, but they tend to balance each other out. ... One of the strengths we have is the diversity of agriculture.” Hiring field workers in a shrinking farm labor market proved to be a major challenge for growers—and impacted vegetables most. Broccoli and lettuce took the biggest dips in total acres harvested in 2017, as veggie growers simply couldn’t find enough workers to pick all the ripened crops. Todd Talley, co-owner of Talley Farms in Arroyo Grande, experienced the labor shortage and its consequences firsthand. The effects were amplified last year by unpredictable weather, which brought both rain and heat waves that altered ripening patterns. “Especially when you have weather situations that bring on the product quicker, there were definitely times when we just didn’t have the labor that we needed,” Talley told New Times. “It continues to be a struggle today.” Field workers tend to gravitate to grapes and berries as higher value crops that offer higher wages, at times leaving vegetables with the short end of the stick. Talley said he’s increasingly relying on the federal H-2A program to hire temporary foreign

Elena Kagan, who wrote that the decision turned the First Amendment “into a sword” to be used “against workaday economic and regulatory policy.” “The First Amendment was meant for better things,” Kagan wrote. Stakes noted that while nonmembers will no longer have to pay fees, they will still get to benefit from the union’s services, which include negotiating for raises and benefits as well as representing employees in grievances and disciplinary proceedings. Without those nonmember fees, Stakes said, it would be even more important to make the case to current nonunion staff, as well as new and incoming staff, as to why they should join. “We will have to make sure that we articulate very clearly what the union provides for them,” she said. ∆ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

WINE RULES ALL Vineyards in SLO County, like this one in Adelaida, produced wine grapes with a recordhigh combined value of $268 million in 2017. Yet, the agricultural industry as a whole tapered slightly last year, as farmers struggled to find field labor.

workers to meet the need. “That’s our reality,” he said. “I suspect if you go to other growers in the area you’d hear the same story.” Even in the grape market, where labor is relatively easier to find and can be partially offset by mechanization, vintners are leaning more and more on the H-2A program as the local labor market dwindles. “H-2A, in our minds, is the wave of the future,” said Tavo Acosta, vineyard manager for Vino Farms, which grows grapes from San Miguel to Los Alamos. “It’s my mindset that we’ve got to start heading in that direction to be able to be ready when labor does start becoming very short locally.” But H-2A regulations require that the

farmer provide housing, transportation, and other accommodations to the workers. On the Central Coast, that can be a stumbling block, growers said. “Housing has become a major obstacle and hurdle to get over,” Acosta said. “Farmers in general are willing to accommodate and build housing for these people, but the bureaucracy and red tape does not allow for that.” Talley said the lack of H-2A housing is an issue the county and agricultural community needs to address for the longterm health of the industry. “Our county is so dependent on agriculture. We need to fix the problem that we’re in,” he said. ∆ Staff Writer Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

new superfood bar hit local store shelves and countertop displays in April of this year. It all started with a trip to the Grand Canyon and a long-lasting interest in Native American culture. Rafael Pintor, now a senior at Cal Poly, visited the national park with his family. As he soaked in the vastness of the land, he thought about how native people survived out there back in the day, when there weren’t any tourist stops for food. The tour guide pointed to a tree—the tree wasn’t very tall, it kind of looked like a bush, and it was covered with pine cones. The guide told Pintor that those pine cones contain seeds called pinyon, and those seeds have been used for thousands and thousands of years. Pintor’s next question was where to buy the seed? He discovered that the seed can’t be bought in Southern California, the Central Coast, or Northern California. It stays native to its land. From that visit, Atsá Foods was born, a company created by Cal Poly students that focuses on the sustainability of its product as well as how the product is made. The vice president of marketing and design for Atsá Foods, Sam Baber, said the company launched because of the vision that Pintor had. “Basically, it started because Rafael saw it as a way to bridge the gap between creating economic development in a lot of regions that are Native American communities or rural communities. But it’s also creating development in those areas that is culturally relevant and not just something obscure,” Baber said. He said that the founder of Atsá basically looked around and realized there was a nut growing over thousands and thousands of square miles that’s just falling to the ground every year, and no one is harvesting it. “It’s growing wild, it’s growing sustainably, it’s nutritious, healthy, and nobody is using it,” Baber said. With the pinyon nut, Baber said the company was able to create a The Pinyon Superfood Bar. Its main ingredients are the pinyon toasted nut, cranberry, chia, quinoa, and cinnamon. The pinyon nuts are harvested in the fall in Nevada. Baber said that because the pinyon nut is a wild crop, the harvest moves around every year, so it’s not repeated in the same region. The company keeps its harvesting areas discreet because the crop is wild and anyone can harvest it. Currently, Baber said, Atsá Foods connects with a distributor who works with people on the ground in the communities that harvest the crop. The company’s connection with its workers in the Nevada area is something Atsá is working toward changing. “It takes a long time to build that kind of connection, especially with people in close-knit communities, so right now, we’re basically having people connect

us with other people. Eventually, we’re trying to have that connection built by ourselves,” he said. The Pinyon Superfood Bar is available at local coffee shops, delis, and some stores in the downtown SLO area. The company is also selling its product in Santa Barbara.

Fast fact In 2013, Cuesta College launched The Cuesta Promise Scholarship, a program that was the result of a more than $8 million donation to the Cuesta College Foundation from the Charles and Leeta Dovica Family Trust. The scholarship endowment currently saves students an average of $1,400 each year by paying for the per-unit cost of classes and fees. The college is now expanding the program to include a second year of free education. San Luis Obispo County high school seniors graduating this year will be the first class eligible to obtain two full years of fee-free education at Cuesta College. Student must complete more than 50 percent of the units attempted and earn a grade point average of 2.0 or higher during their first year on the Promise to earn a free second year.

Competing for the future

Price Canyon oil operations are on the line with a proposed ban on future oil and gas drilling BY CAMILLIA LANHAM • PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

T

he clicking whir and mechanical clanging is different at each pump-jack (think hobby horse) that works to pull oil up from the depths below this section of Price Canyon. The new-style linear rod pumps (which look exactly as their namesake describes them) are almost silent in comparison; a gentle gushing noise is all that gives them away. Paul DeLorenzo, the operations superintendent for Sentinel Peak Resource’s Price Canyon property, says that belts in need of repair could explain clacking contrasts between the older wellheads. He would know. DeLorenzo has been working on this stretch of land between Pismo Beach and the Edna Valley since 1979. DeLorenzo points out the window of the SUV he’s driving. A black line cuts through the packed beige sand that makes up the side of a hill above the vehicle. It’s a vein of petroleum. “This is our formation, so this is why we have to heat it up,” DeLorenzo says. “It’s oil sands.” The heat DeLorenzo’s referring to is steam. Water heated until it becomes a vapor is injected into the ground, flooding the sand formation hundreds of feet below the wheels of the SUV. That water seeps around particles of sand, liquefying the thick petroleum interspersed between granules. Eventually, the mix of liquid is pumped out of the ground. About 19 to 20 barrels of what’s known as produced water comes up with every barrel of oil produced, according to Christine Halley, Sentinel’s environmental health and safety director. She’s sitting behind DeLorenzo. “We go about our business here using produced water,” Halley says as DeLorenzo swings around a gigantic mass of tanks and tubes. “Clean it and then heat it up and inject it. … What’s unique here is the water reclamation facility.” Produced water enters these tanks and pipes on one end, oil is separated, the water gets cleaned of impurities, and 560 acre-feet a year of that water gets added to Pismo Creek. Halley wouldn’t get into the specifics about how exactly it happens, because it’s a “coveted” process. Soft water is utilized in the steaming operation, and any produced water that’s left over gets reinjected into the aquifer below. The whole operation—185 active oil wells, not all of which utilize steam injection—nets around 1,500 barrels a day of oil, which gets piped to the Phillips 66 refinery on the Nipomo Mesa and eventually becomes feedstock for jet fuel, gas, or diesel, among other things, Halley says. “It represents about 15 percent of what this county consumes on a daily basis,” she adds. Currently, the field is in Phase 4 and awaiting county approval to complete the remainder of that 95-well project, which has 31 wells left to drill. The company is also waiting for an Environmental Protection Agency ruling that would exempt more of the Arroyo Grande oil field from the Safe Drinking Water Act, something it needs to continue operating some of the wastewater reinjection wells on the property—and, potentially, to drill more reinjection wells. Phase 5, which Halley says is on hold indefinitely, would drill 450 oil wells if it ever moves forward. Some of those would be cyclically steamed, and 100 of them would be replacement wells. “If that Phase 5 vision were to be played out, it’s our estimates that this field would be producing 5,000 barrels [of oil] a day,” Halley says. That potential increase in production is exactly what San Luis Obispo County residents like Charles Varni and Doug Timewell are worried about. They are spearheading the Coalition to Protect SLO County’s effort to get a ballot initiative passed in November that would ban hydraulic fracturing and drilling new oil wells. Coalition members are concerned about water contamination (due to oil and reinjection wells), the potential for increased earthquake activity, and other environmental disasters. Measure G, they argue, would enable Sentinel Peak to continue

operating as it has consistently done over the last decade or so, producing between 360,000 and 700,000 barrels of oil per year. However, it wouldn’t allow the oil company to increase its capacity. “They’ve been stable over the last several years,” Timewell said. “What happens when they turn up the volume dramatically? There’s no study that states that it’s going to be stable.” Sentinel Peak has said that if the measure passes, the oil company will eventually have to shut down its operations completely, laying off 20-plus employees and affecting more than 100 contract workers in the county.

Court rules SLO County could become the seventh county in California to ban hydraulic fracturing. According to Kassie Siegel, director of the Center for Biological Diversity’s Climate Law Institute, the six other counties are San Benito, Monterey, Mendocino, Butte, Santa Cruz, and Alameda. “The common thread between all of the six, and including the one in San Luis Obispo, is a ban on fracking,” Siegel said. “There’s no better time to ban the

changed the county’s land-use codes, similar to what Measure G is proposing. But Monterey County’s measure also prohibits and phases out land uses that support oil and gas wastewater disposal—reinjection wells or ponds. A ruling issued by Monterey County Superior Court Judge Thomas Wills in December 2017 said that the petitioners didn’t have standing to sue over the well stimulation treatments, citing the fact that these sorts of oil extraction techniques weren’t currently practiced in the county. However, Wills also ruled that federal and state law pre-empted the local land-use changes that the measure implemented. He said the authority to regulate drilling oil, gas, and wastewater reinjection wells already rests with state agencies, the Department of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources and the State Water Quality Control Board; federal law, the Safe Drinking Water Act; and a federal agency, the Environmental Protection Agency. Essentially: The fracking ban part of Measure Z stands, but nothing else does. “We disagree with that,” Siegel said. “If you’re getting into the weeds of this, oil companies will argue that anything below ground is preempted by state regulation, and we think that’s clearly not true. … We believe that Measure Z is lawful in every respect, and that’s why we appealed.” Center for Biological Diversity attorneys appealed the ruling on behalf of Protect Monterey County, the local group behind the measure. But the county itself made a deal with the oil companies on the lawsuit, agreeing to bow out of the appeal proceedings if the oil companies “declined to pursue attorney’s fees and other costs, including for potential future challenges to the fracking ban,” the Monterey Herald reported. Siegel pointed to Beverly Oil Co. v. City of Los Angeles as one ruling that proves Measure Z is lawful. The 1953 U.S. Supreme Court case centers on a 1946 zoning ordinance enacted in Los Angeles that banned the drilling of new oil and gas wells and forbade the deepening of existing wells. Beverly Oil sued, arguing that the city intended to terminate its “nonconforming use” right to use the property for oil and gas production.

practice of fracking than before it even starts.” She said the center has been supportive of all the local measures to ban fracking and restrict oil and gas drilling, including Santa Barbara County’s failed 2014 effort. Measure G is similar to Monterey County’s Measure Z, which passed in 2016 and is currently winding its way through the court system after oil companies and royalty owners sued the county. Measure Z prohibits “the use of any land within the county’s unincorporated area” for new oil and gas wells and well stimulation treatments, such as hydraulic fracturing and acid well stimulation treatments. It

The court ruled against Beverly. “We are dealing with one of the most essential powers of government, one that is the least limitable. It may, indeed, seem harsh in its exercise, usually is on some individual, but the imperative necessity for its existence precludes any limitation upon it,” the majority opinion states. “There must be progress, and if in its march private interests are in the way, they must yield to the good of the community.” The ruling, Siegel said, is just one of many that proves local jurisdictions have the power to generate ordinances that affect activities underground, such as oil drilling. Wills disagreed in his ruling on Measure Z, stating that


G, Stop the Oil & Gas Shutdown in San Luis Obispo County, the oil and gas industry provides more than $1 million to the county’s general fund, and more than “230 mainly blue-collar workers and their families” are threatened with job loss should G pass in November. The flyer also says that the county stands to “lose an industry that is responsible for $64 million in economic output.” “We have no intent of shutting down the current oil operation; we want it to continue,” Timewell with the Coalition to Protect SLO County said. He argues that intensifying operations over the Arroyo Grande oil field (Phase 5) would shut down the operation faster than simply allowing it to continue operating as it has been. A Department of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources presentation made as part of the 2015 application to exempt the Arroyo Grande oil field from the Safe Drinking Water Act states that the field has about 25-plus years of reserves left. “It’s hard for people to wrap their heads around: The swimming pool is only filled with so much oil. It’s not an endless reserve of oil,” Timewell said. “If you’ve got 25 years of reserves and you’re going to extract it at eight times the current rate, how many years to you have left?”

Fight for the future

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCE Linear rod pumps like these are dispersed among old style pump-jacks on the Arroyo Grande oil field.

the Supreme Court decision does not answer the question about conflicts between local and state authority. Siegel also contends that a century of court rulings in California affirm that local jurisdictions have a lot of power to protect themselves from activities they believe would be harmful to the public/residents. “Measure Z is fully lawful, but regardless of the final decision at the end of litigation when all the appeals are exhausted,” Siegel said. “Measure G is different. It’s not really relevant to what happens with Measure Z.”

Uniquely a G thing

Measure G, according to Siegel, builds off regulations and definitions that already exist in SLO County code. It doesn’t seek to regulate wastewater injection or production techniques other than fracking. But, similar to Measure Z, it would ban land uses associated with drilling new oil and gas wells by amending the county’s zoning code. “All of these local oil measure, they respond to the local wants and the local needs,” Siegel said. “Measure G doesn’t regulate below ground, it regulates what goes on above land through zoning.” San Benito County, for example, banned oil and gas drilling in residential areas of the county. The Santa Barbara County measure that failed sought to ban enhanced oil extraction techniques, including fracking, acid treatment, and steam injection. Monterey County, as the fourth largest producer of oil in the state, didn’t have any oil and gas regulations on the county books before Measure Z passed. That lack of oversight was a major reason for introducing the measure, according to Mary Hsia-Coron with Protect Monterey County. She said that for decades Monterey County issued open-ended permits to oil and gas operators. “The holder of the permit has a blanket permit,” HsiaCoron said. “It basically says you can drill as many wells as you want.” A fiscal impact statement on Measure Z by the Monterey County Auditor stated that in 2015-16, the oil industry paid a little less than $8 million in property taxes. In 2014-15, the industry paid a little more than $8.5 million. “Because the prevailing price of oil is an important factor in calculating property taxes paid by the oil industry, collections fluctuate accordingly. Assessments are conducted annually,” the statement said. Monterey’s impact statement also estimated that as many as 730 jobs were related to the oil services industry and related consumer spending. The SLO County Auditor’s Office provided New Times with the amount of taxes collected from the companies operating the two oil fields in SLO County—currently, Sentinel Peak Resources in Price Canyon and E&B Natural Resources near Carrizo Plain National Monument. In 2016-17, taxes totaled $558,506, according to those numbers. It was about the same in 2015-16. According to a flyer from the campaign against Measure

S

urely we good, smart, rich people of this area can come up with something! We have homeless citizens in their 60s and 70s. I physically crumple and cry every time I see a homeless woman. The women that we all see around, here and there, in parking lots, at the Dollar Tree, walking, wandering, sometimes pushing baby strollers, sometimes with dogs in them. Everyone sees them all the time. The women are constantly abused, beaten up, raped, robbed. Yes, many are drug addicts or simply mentally ill. Does that mean they deserve to be beaten and raped and have their money and few belongings stolen? This is not something the police can handle. We need to create safety for homeless people. Does anyone remember Sharon? She lived on the streets in the Five Cities roughly 25 years ago. At that time, our area was quite a bit smaller and safer. She was homeless. Once a month, when the weather was bad, she would rent a room for a few days at the (no longer available) Rose Garden Inn with money from her Social Security check. Then, Sharon moved into San Luis Obispo. I saw her downtown many years later. She was still homeless. She was at a table outside of Starbucks by the movie theater. We spoke. She talked about living on the hillside above Cal Poly. She was

Sharon wasn’t in the paper because she won the lottery. Sharon was in the paper because she had been murdered in San Luis Obispo. Murdered. In the creek. Right smack dab in the middle of downtown San Luis Obispo, a homeless woman was murdered. Perpetrators had pushed Sharon and held her under and she drowned.

connections, good timing. Most people I know who are homeless live with childhood abuse, very bad health, mental illness, extreme bad luck, addiction, horrible family issues or no family, poor education, sexual abuse, poor medical treatment, alcoholism—any and/ or all of the above. Is it our hard work that has kept us from having these problems? Does hard work alone keep us from having to live life on the street ... or have we not only worked hard but been extremely lucky? Blessed? Fortunate? Sometimes healthy? Of course we have. Any one of us who lives here, who has a roof over our head, must know we are lucky, blessed, fortunate beyond belief.

As a community. COMMENTARY continued page 13

An uncared for community gem

I consider myself incredibly fortunate and grateful for the community that I live in. We have experienced a bit of a heat wave in this last week, but for those few and far between days of discomfort … overall, we have it pretty great. One of my favorite places in town is Sinsheimer Park. I consider it to be a cut above the rest in town, maybe because I live only a half-mile away or maybe because this park seems to be a haven for our community. On the weekends, this park is jam packed with SLO town joy and happiness. I walk my dogs to the park just to feel the energy and connection of our community members. The smell of hot dogs on the barbecues; the crack of a bat from the SLO Blues games; parents cheering on our little leaguers; the swish of the chains from a disc golf games; the shrieks of sheer joy coming from the children as they slide down the hill of our brand new playground. I can’t help but smile as I breath in the summer air and contentedly think “This is my community. How lucky am I?!” On Monday, I do my best to preserve the dreamlike love affair that I have with our home by keeping up the weekend walking routine: wake up early, sip some locally roasted coffee, and take the dog for a walk. Down the beautiful sidewalk to the pristine bike trail, to the luscious green grass of the baseball fields. There are no sounds from baseball fans, no resonance of joy from the kids playing on the playground, and the sight before me is not the well-loved neighborhood gem LETTERS continued page 13


Opinion COMMENTARY from page 12

I remember that the people of Paso Robles built the Niblick Bridge. Am I wrong? They needed it, they wanted it, they paid for it, and they built it. I believe that the wealthy people of Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, Oceano, and Arroyo Grande (and we are legion) truly must look at our good fortune and put big money together to have a refuge for human beings, with security and dignity. Not with a referendum or a tax, but because we want to, and we can. Because we are fortunate, lucky, and blessed. Or do the homeless women have to be murdered? Tonight they are being abused, beaten, sold for drugs, robbed, and raped. Do they have to be murdered? Can we organize, build, supply, and protect the homeless Americans in our Five Cities? This is the war we should and must fight and win. ∆ Cynthia Barr is waiting for her Winston Churchill in Grover Beach.

that it was yesterday. No. On Monday, the playground looks like a refuse facility. Trash, overflowing in the bins, but perhaps the most heartbreaking part is the hundreds of pieces of cardboard boxes left behind from the slide hill. Just like that ... the dream is over. I know that by the time of my Thursday morning walk, the rubbish will have been removed, the box pieces recycled, and the lawn mowed—all in anticipation of the weekend right around the corner. This happens every week. I was always taught to leave something, someplace, or someone in better condition than how you found them. It is a value that I hold dearly. I realize that these are my values, and I’m not naïve enough to expect everyone to feel the same. However, I would like to speak directly to those who use this beautiful park. Please, come out and play, enjoy the community, connect with your neighbors! But please, please take your memories and your trash with you. Samantha Payette San Luis Obispo

There’s nothing but volunteers behind this green door

Last Spring, I was one of 300 volunteers who gathered the signatures to place Measure G on the November ballot. In nine weeks, we gathered more than 20,000 signatures. I take issue with Al Fonzi’s July 5 commentary (“Look behind the green door”), where he wrote: Measure G is a “fraudulent measure that will do significant harm to county, city, and school district budgets, not to mention taking some $60-plus million out of the local economy.” Mr. Fonzi failed to explain how Measure G is fraudulent. He failed to substantiate the claims that local coffers will suffer. And, by the way, where did Mr. Fonzi come up with the $60 million figure? What is fraudulent is to purposefully argue wild and unsubstantiated claims. Mr. Fonzi presented one correct fact. Measure G will ban fracking in our county. There is a valid argument for such a prohibition. Our county is a semi-

arid region. Water scarcity and drought is the new normal. Fracking is a waterintensive process of oil or natural gas extraction. According to the American Geosciences Institute, a typical fracking well requires anywhere from 1.5 million to 16 million gallons of water. In addition, researchers for the Yale School of Public Health determined in a 2016 study that more than 1,000 chemicals are used in the fracking process. Many of the chemicals are known neurotoxins and carcinogens. Once water goes through the fracking process, it is no longer suitable for human consumption. The water is not recyclable. I invite everybody to visit the Measure G website at protectslo.nationbuilder. com/. Read the measure. Learn the facts. Ignore the rhetoric. And, of course, vote yes this November for Measure G.

Support a limit on oil expansion

I am writing today to express my support of Measure G. I support Measure G because it will limit the expansion of the Arroyo Grande oil field, which I fear will contaminate the drinking water in Pismo Beach. If the oil companies are allowed to build 450 more wells, they will be injecting more than 1.3 million gallons of toxic wastewater into our drinking water aquifer every day. I ask that if you care for the well-being of yourself, your family, and those in your community, please vote yes on Measure G. Feel free to visit yesonmeasureg.org for more information. M.

Opinion LETTERS from page 13

Just imagine

This letter is to Kathy Riedmann and anyone else who read her letter in last week’s New Times (“Outrageous!” July 5) and found within it solace or worthwhile information. Her theme seemed to be that I (and probably others like me) lack imagination. Nothing could be farther from the truth, so let me share what I imagine right back at her. I imagine that intelligent people would recognize the wisdom of the electorate and why they selected Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. It seems obvious, but maybe that’s just me. Imagine if our black citizens, seeing that President Trump’s economic policies resulted in black unemployment numbers lower than ever before, switched their allegiance from Democrat to Republican. Imagine if our socialist-leaning citizens did some homework only to discover that capitalism has liberated more people from poverty than any other economic system. Of course, one doesn’t need to imagine, just look into the economies of former Soviet Union, Cuba, and Venezuela to see that socialism just doesn’t work. Imagine if the “makers” were allowed to keep what they earned to support their family and community and invest any that remains to make the world a better place rather than being forced, by the power of government, to give it to the “takers.” Imagine if our government treated lawbreakers at the border as they do citizens who break the law in our

communities. Seems to me that children are always separated from their parents when adults are incarcerated. Imagine if our government banned entire groups of people, based upon the danger they presented to our citizens, from entering our country. Imagine if our president made friends with all world leaders with the goal of improving financial opportunity for and safety of our citizens. Imagine if our government allowed the people, through their representatives, to decide the legality of abortion rather than the way it’s been awkwardly decided by one judge, 40 years ago, via a 5-4 vote. Imagine if all of those in the resist movement would just accept the will of the people expressed in our last election, get out of the way, and allow our president to Make America Great Again. Imagine if the left’s continued obstruction, name-calling, bad behavior, and impeachment efforts end up costing them the next presidential election. Just imagine … wouldn’t that be something.

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

Dr. Evil is a bad source N ow comes the inevitable clash of Rhetoric & Reason columnists. The centerpiece of Al Fonzi’s July 5 installment (“Look behind the green door”) was the recent report of the Congressional Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, “Russian Attempts to Influence U.S. Domestic Energy Markets by Exploiting Social Media.” Its thesis: Russian trolls are behind the movement to replace fossil fuels in the U.S. with clean energy. Fonzi laments that this story was not picked up by the major media (“Didn’t hear about this? No headlines in the local paper or lead stories on the local TV station? Don’t hold your breath, you won’t.”). It was however, picked up by every right-wing blogger and oil and gas PR site on the web, faithfully repeating the spin that the Republican-controlled committee put on the presumptive goals of Russia’s social media escapades. Only one of those sites apparently read all the way to the end of the committee’s report, and dutifully reported the truth of the matter. That site was, and I can’t believe I’m typing this, Newsmax: “Internet trolls in Russia engineered a social media campaign that targeted controversial U.S. energy projects, and appeared to be set up to upset both environmental activists and pro-oil supporters, congressional Republicans reported Thursday. The House Science Committee report noted that the Internet Research Agency, a Kremlin-linked troll farm, posted thousands of times on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram between 2015 and 2017, taking aim at the Dakota Access Pipeline, while other posts criticized the pipeline protesters. Committee chair Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said he was not surprised the trolls had taken on both sides of the argument. ‘By stirring up both sides, clearly they see that as something that could benefit them,’ Smith said.” From the report: “Numerous posts from a Russian account named ‘Heart of Texas’ advocated for pro-drilling and oil positions. The text associated with the post pictured below, for example, stated: ‘I don’t care what ecologists say. Texas is the top oil producing state, and I’m [] proud of it! Let’s douse the Yankees with it and then just throw a burning match.’ This is an attempt by the Russians to arouse emotion among Americans based on their geographic location. “Additionally, several posts took positions against climate change policies, supporting the notion that scientists ‘have no proof of substantial temperature fluctuations in recent history’ and stating ‘liberals tax our business not because it is in the planet’s interest, but because they are afraid of fair competition, want additional money for themselves, and wish to control [the] energy sector in this country.’ The posts highlight claims that liberals ‘use fear of climate change to manipulate general public all in the name of greed and lust for power.’ The post concludes with, ‘Stop taxing our business,

climate change isn’t real!’ “By posting content that supports positions held by both liberals and conservatives alike, the Russians used social media to instigate and inflame discord in the United States.” Oops. But the most exciting part of Mr. Fonzi’s column was a shot at environmental groups, including the Sierra Club. “Apparently, the Sierra Club Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council have been caught with their fingers in the Russian cookie jar, [wittingly or not] taking $10 million from the Sea Change Foundation, a Bermuda company congressional investigators have linked to Russian front groups whose mission was to sabotage American energy production.” Some fun! But anyone who believed it should Google “Republicans brewing Russian scandal to target greens” and read Politico’s detailed takedown of the notion that the Kremlin is bankrolling campaigns against fracking, as reported by a real reporter. As it turns out, the charge and its shaky “links” sprang from the brow of the Environmental Policy Alliance, a group founded by D.C. lobbyist Richard Berman. He’s better known by his nickname, Dr. Evil, earned for his orchestrated attacks on groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving on behalf of the alcohol lobby and, per The New York Times, his advice to corporate clients to “exploit emotions like fear, greed, and anger” when “secretly financing such a campaign” through Berman’s offices. The occasion for the serving up of this goulash to New Times readers is Measure G, “an upcoming November ballot measure that would ban all new oil production along with fracking in SLO County.” “Could it be,” Mr. Fonzi wondered, “that Measure G is partly a result of this subversive effort?” Could it be that Mr. Fonzi’s voluminous output doubting the science of climate change and his oft expressed opinions of liberals—both a mirror image of the propaganda the House Committee identified on a Russian social media troll site—are partly a result of this subversive effort? Or could it be that “could it be” is the favorite preamble of propagandists everywhere, who can shove anything they want into the space after that introductory clause? Could it be that we should acknowledge that the words of those who “used social media to instigate and inflame discord in the United States” have nothing to do with the actual issues they seize upon in service to that effort? ∆ Andrew Christie is director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

Opinion

The Shredder

Thanks, Trump

T

here’s nothing I like better than uncorking a bottle (or two) of locally produced wine while snacking on some locally grown strawberries and steamed locally cultivated broccoli, and then cracking open the scintillating annual SLO County crop report. After all, agriculture is a multi-million dollar part of our economy! Show me the green! The good news is grapes are No. 1 again! Mmm, vino. The bad news is overall crop values fell half a percent from last year mainly because of—according to the crop report—labor shortages. Really? People aren’t lining up to work long hours in terrible conditions at inconsistent seasonal employment that pays minimum wage? Weird! Truth be told, according to the LA Times, the average annual farmworker’s salary is about $17,500. I couldn’t even afford to drink boxed wine on those wages! You know what might help? An immigrant workforce of new green card holders willing to accept such low wages, but thanks to Trump-generated anti-immigrant sentiment, his zero tolerance policy on illegal immigration, and his crackdown by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on undocumented workers, local farmers can’t harvest their crops! Why not abolish ICE and force all those bozos who get their jollies locking little kids in cages to get jobs picking our crops? Problem solved. Look, I’ll admit we do have an immigration problem, but it’s that we

don’t let in enough immigrants! Instead of making it impossible for willing workers to come to the U.S., we should make it easier. Instead of listening to Sir Tweets-alot that immigrants are the root of all our problems, we should be praising and welcoming immigrants for the incredible boost they bring to our economy. Immigrants are not the enemy! You want next year’s crop report to show an increase in overall crop values? Get off the immigrant-bashing bandwagon and, instead, encourage them to join the U.S. workforce so we can keep the wine flowing! It’s the only way I’m going to make it through Trump’s full term in office. Oh, and by the way, grapes, you may be No. 1 this year, but there’s a new crop in town, and its name is Mary Jane Pufnstuff. If the SLO County Board of Supervisors’ conservative majority can just get its head out of its clenched coal-into-diamonds-crushing sphincter for a second and encourage the legal cannabis industry the way it encourages wine grapes, next year when I settle in to read the ag report, I can enjoy my trough of pinot grigio with a nice Orange Skittlz doobie, which will make that steamed broccoli go down a lot easier. Speaking of workers getting the shaft, Trump’s reconfiguring of the Supreme Court of the United States is off to a great—and by “great” I mean “terrible”—

start. SCOTUS ruled 5-4 in the Janus v. AFSCME case that public sector labor unions can no longer collect “fair share” fees from nonunion members. For years, if a public employee—let’s say a Cal Poly lecturer who considers herself a libertarian—didn’t want to join the teachers union because she’s a cheapskate and believes in “individualism,” she’d still have partial union dues taken from her wages and given to the union that had negotiated via collective bargaining said wages and benefits. Those collected fees from nonunion members were essential in funding the union and its activities that protect workers’ rights. SCOTUS ruled that “this arrangement violates the free speech rights of nonmembers by compelling them to subsidize private speech on matters of substantial public concern,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote in the court’s majority. The problem is this: The ruling is just the next step in trying to bust unions and strip workers of their collective bargaining power, which conservatives have been trying to do since the 1970s. It’s not about protecting free speech; it’s about stripping protection from workers and making it easier for employers to exploit them! Thanks to these ongoing union-busting measures, a lot of public intellectuals have suggested that unions’ days are numbered. Maybe if those justices had slung back some Central Coast chardonnay and taken a few puffs of our next cash crop, they wouldn’t have been so mean to the unions. Sadly, SCOTUS has become politicized. Citizens United v. FEC, which decided that money is speech and rich people have

more “free” speech than poor people, was just the first step in disenfranchising rank-and-file voters. If Trump’s next pick of Brett Kavanaugh is approved, kiss abortion rights, gay marriage, and LGBTQ protections goodbye. By the way, Kavanaugh is the second old white man Trump’s nominated for the seat; at this rate, SCOTUS will look like the audience at a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert! Can’t you smell that smell? It’s fascism, baby! I prefer the smell of dank, sticky democracy. And speaking of fascism, ever since Trump’s election and all his hateful, xenophobic, and bigoted rhetoric, hate crimes have been on the rise nationwide. According to a new report by the California Department of Justice, our “progressive” state has seen a double-digit increase in hate crimes, including SLO County itself. From the Oceano Dunes to Cal Poly to Templeton High School, there’s hate, hate, hate! I was watching a video on the interwebs the other day and saw some white ignoramus screaming at a woman for wearing a Puerto Rico flag-festooned shirt in the U.S. He was completely oblivious that Puerto Ricans are American citizens. That’s like attacking someone for wearing a South Dakota flag shirt! Trump’s making stupid acceptable. The common denominator of hate seems to be ignorance, and since the fish rots from the head, America is starting to stink. Thanks, Trump. ∆ The Shredder misses Sweet Home Obama.

Live to skate!

The Siren hosts a Morro Bay Skateboard Museum fundraiser

T

he Morro Bay Skateboard Museum is super rad, a one-stop spot that chronicles the history of skateboarding from 1930s proto scooters to the homemade boards of the ’50s to the wide bowl-riding boards of the ’70s and right through to today. First opened in 2012 and currently located in Morro Bay’s Marina Square (699 Embarcadero), it’s the brainchild of ’70s skate legend Jack Smith, 61, who also founded The Skateboarder’s Journal. The museum is a labor of love for Smith, who has skateboarded across the U.S. four times since 1976, generating money for his museum and to donate skateboards to kids in need to raise awareness for the sport he loves. The museum is a worthy cause, and in constant need of funding, and this Saturday, July 14, Morro Bay’s The Siren nightclub is hosting a fundraising concert for the museum featuring Bay Area surf instrumental band The Reefriders and local garage/surf rockers Hayley and The Crushers (doors at 7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $20 at ticketfly. com and Boo Boo’s). It’s going to be a killer night starting with live DJ sets by FlutterByCam and Steph West, raffles, museum merch (buy an awesome T-shirt!), and more! The Reefriders is a trio that re-creates everything from the sounds of early surf bands to the scorching guitar sounds of Dick Dale. You may feel like you’re living the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. Hayley and The Crushers will douse you in the musical equivalent of glitter and sparklers, with a sound that feels like The Go-Go’s meet Gidget in a mosh pit. The whole lineup this week at The Siren kicks ass. On Thursday, July 12,

Up on the Cloud Festival Mozaic combines classical music with iTunes user agreement

W

henever Susan Cahill needs a little inspiration for how to bring new life to the work she does with a 200-year-old piece of wood, she clicks on over to YouTube. The Colorado Symphony bassist, composer, and University of Denver faculty member is always looking for new ways to approach classic music. So a few years ago when she and her longtime collaborator, actor John Wilkerson, stumbled on the idea of doing a classical piece that drew on text from the iTunes user agreement, Cahill was game. “Bass gets a lot of experimental music written for it because there isn’t a lot of repertoire like violin,” Cahill said. “Composers know we’re up for anything. This just seemed so arcane.” Cahill and Wilkerson will perform their “Sonata for Double Bass and iTunes User Agreement” on July 20 as part of Festival Mozaic in San Luis Obispo. The duo selected enough excerpts from the very, very lengthy text to put on a performance that runs about

The fine print

Susan Cahill and John Wilkerson will perform “Sonata for Double Bass” and iTunes User Agreement during Festival Mozaic on July 20 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Chamber Series: American Music event at the United Methodist Church in San Luis Obispo. Tickets range from $35 to $75. For more information on all festival events, visit festivalmozaic.com.

12 minutes. While the words remain the same each time they perform the piece, Cahill improvises the music differently and Wilkerson changes his approach to the text with every show. “Some of it ends up being silly, morose, ironic,” Cahill said. “The philosophy of improv is not to plan things, but to practice being open. We sort of created something that is a pretty good reflection of how strangely we are fitting all of this technology into our lives.” Seemingly dry lines such as, “Apple may use technologies to verify your compliance,” have inspired other artists as well, including graphic novelist Robert Sikoryak, who paired the legal text with iconic characters like Bart Simpson and Garfield in Terms and Conditions, which came out last year. “If you take it out of context, you realize how bizarre it is,” Cahill said

of the iTunes user agreement. She and Wilkerson were particularly struck by a section that talks about when a family breaks up. Think when someone graduates, moves out, or gets a divorce and wants their own iTunes account. For her own family, Cahill tries to keep a limit to how much time she and her young children spend looking at screens. That means no game console or cable at home. “I’m a bit of a Luddite,” Cahill said. “I’ve been pretty protective of them, and I take responsibility to keep things balanced until they’re old enough to handle the dopamine hit that comes with a text. If it’s not there, we just don’t fight about it.” As a musician, Cahill spends much of her life in the tactile world, practicing her craft, but YouTube is always an invaluable resource that allows her to get inspiration from other artists, especially given that not a lot of modern, classical music is available on music streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music. “We really feel torn between the organic and the electronic,” Cahill said. “As someone who plays a 220-year-old piece of wood for a living, I’m acutely aware of the dichotomy.” Ultimately, Cahill hopes that “Sonata for Double Bass and iTunes User Agreement” will lead listeners to their own conclusions about technology, art, and life. “It does leave people in a sort of quizzical state, which I think is the best possible thing,” Cahill said of the piece. “You could take it a bunch of different ways.” ∆ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley is more of a Spotify girl.

I van-ya to see this play PCPA’s Vanya, Sonia, Masha, and Spike is the good kind of hot mess

G

ood news. You don’t have to be an expert on the work of Russian playwright Anton Pavlovich Chekhov to enjoy the Pacific Conservatory Theatre’s (PCPA) Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. But a little inside baseball knowledge won’t hurt either. The play, written by Christopher Durang in 2012 (and based on Chekhov’s characters), tells the story of an oddball family living in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The story opens with Sonia (Anne Guynn) and Vanya (Peter S. Hadres) having a rather depressing argument and exploring the depths of their ennui in the home of their dead parents. Vanya and Sonia have lived there for more than a decade, forgoing their own lives to care for their dying parents as their sister, Masha (Polly Firestone Walker), ran off to Hollywood to become a successful-ish movie star. Now past Hollywood Death Age for a woman (older than 40), Masha returns with her young lover, Spike (Sam Bravo), in tow to drop a bomb on her family. Other than the titular characters, the play also features Cassandra (Annali Fuchs-Wackowski),

who certainly lives up to her name, and Nina (Madison Shaheen), an aspiring actress who threatens Masha but finds a place in Sonia and Vanya’s hearts. The attention to detail is mindboggling. There are tiny props hidden in almost every nook and cranny of the set that speak to the character’s soul. A card table next to a stand with a push button corded phone gives more away about Vanya and Sonia’s frozen life than some of their monologues do. This play is a comedy and definitely not one for children. Get ready for a few F-bombs and a lot of bawdy jokes about sex and sensuality. If you’re shy about the human body, be warned: Bravo spends much of this play in little more than his underwear (it’s all part of the joke). Fuchs-Wackowski is a scene-stealer as the tormented prophet with a penchant for voodoo. I loved her energy and commitment to Cassandra’s plotting and scheming. She bends into the character with a searing physicality that shows great promise and undeniable talent. Speaking of body (sorry), Bravo is more than just a handsome face. His Spike is simultaneously cocky and empathetic, like a puppy that poops on your living room floor and then falls asleep cuddling with a cat. You can’t help but love him and that’s because Bravo is determined to push back on the stereotypes of the role. He has a keen

Summer buzz P eyton Reed (Bring It On, Yes Man, Ant-Man) directs this next entry into the Marvel universe set after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang and his superhero alter ego Ant-Man. As Scott struggles to balance his crime fighting and home life, he’s once again called on by Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to join forces with Scott’s one-time love interest (and Pym’s daughter) Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) to deal with a new threat, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen). (118 min.) Glen Chalk this film up as another serviceable action comedy with enough derring-do and laughs to make a trip to the theater worthwhile. As a character, Ant-Man is certainly a lot more fun than dour Batman or goody-two-shoes Superman—he’s fallible, irreverent, and generally loveable, in part because he’s trying so hard to be a good dad to Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson). The running gag is Scott is under house arrest for two years because he joined Captain America to save the world in Germany, breaking international accords. Superheroes may save the day, but they leave a wake of destruction, too, and Scott must remain housebound with an ankle bracelet, under the watchful eye of FBI Agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park, at his deadpan funniest). Woo is always one step behind Scott, and his bits are even funnier than the three hapless thieves-turned-security experts—Luis (Michael Peña), Dave (Tip “T.I.” Harris), and Kurt (David Dastmalchian)—who tried to rob Dr. Pym in the first Ant-Man film and now run a security company. In addition to dealing with Ghost, Scott and company have to watch out for Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins), who like Ghost is desperate to steal Pym’s technology. Meanwhile, Pym now believes his wife Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), who’s been lost in the “quantum realm” for 30 years, is alive, and that it may be possible to rescue her. There’s obviously a lot going on, especially when you add in Scott’s ex-wife Maggie (Judy Greer)—mother to Cassie—and her husband, Paxton (Bobby Cannavale), as well as Pym’s ex-partner Dr. Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne), who appears to have a hidden agenda. Though it seems like a lot to keep track of, the plot is

Anna I prefer superhero flicks that lean on humor as opposed to taking themselves too seriously, and the Ant-Man films fall squarely in that category. Funny dude Rudd is not what first comes to mind when casting the hunky, brooding figure behind most caped crusaders, but I for one am grateful for the change-up in action hero image. These stories are supposed to be fun after all! While this sequel didn’t wow me as much as its predecessor, it still was a followable storyline that stayed true to its quippy, sassy self. The story starts with Scott doing anything and everything to keep Cassie entertained over the few remaining days of his house arrest. When the games get a little rough and Scott’s ankle winds up through a fence board, FBI agent Woo is knocking down his door desperate for a “Gotcha!” in the final stretch of Scott’s two-year sentence. Park is great as determined agent Woo, who’s hell-bent on catching Scott up to his old tricks. While Ant-Man and The Wasp leaves a pretty forgettable mark on the film world in general, it’s a bunch of WONDER WASP The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) brings the brains to the Ant-Man/Wasp duo.

rollicking fun and adventure perfect for an afternoon in the theater when you’re looking to beat the heat. Glen Rudd is particularly suited to the character. He’s sort of a hangdog everyman, but he’s also funny, charming, and good looking enough to be a credible love interest to Hope. Yes, he seems to screw things up over and over again, but his heart’s in the right place. Lilly as Hope is much more competent than Scott, and a strong female character in a superhero movie is always a welcome respite from the boys’ club. There’s some nifty age-reducing CGI for the backstory about Pym and his wife, Janet—both are made to look young again. It certainly adds to the realism of the pre-story, in which Pym and Janet as Ant-Man and The Wasp disarm a Soviet nuclear missile heading to the U.S. The whole quantum realm thing, however, feels like a lot of nonsense. There’s no mention of how Janet survived for 30 years shrunken to subatomic size, how she ate, what continued to power her superhero suit, etc. This is definitely the sort of story you don’t want to think too hard about because it’s silly and absurd. But when the fists are flying or the cars are racing, moving from super small size to super big, it’s best to disappear into the moment and go with it. It’s summer, and you should expect massive, idiotic, popcorn

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

Her misfit son, Henry (Lewis MacDougall, A Monster Calls). has serious social problems, not to mention the fact that he sketches each person he meets, as what he believes their bodies would look like naked. Laura’s father, Jack (Christopher Plummer, All The Money In The World), is a drug dealer who has recently been forced to vacate his home in a senior community because of his illicit behavior. He uses Laura, Henry, and their forced family road trip to take him to live with his other daughter, Jojo (Kristen Schaal, The Boss), as a marijuana delivery service. The movie has some laugh-out-loud moments especially in its depiction of these and other relationships. Laura’s sister; her ex-husband, Leonard (Bobby Cannavale, Ant-Man And The Wasp); and

Jack’s friends and customers make for great comic relief, especially the first of Jack’s friends, played by the always entertaining Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future). However, the relationships are not very realistically depicted, especially the relationship between Laura and Henry. As Henry presents creepy character traits, he gets no appropriate reactions from Laura. She seems unconcerned and even somewhat charmed by his behavior. And when he begins assisting Jack in selling weed, she barely reacts. Part of what makes the movie entertaining, despite its flaws, is the acting. While it is not exactly Oscarworthy, the actors give the perfect level of emotion for a majority of the situations they are placed in. Laura’s character has a

Anna The trailers before the film alone are enough to remind us that summer is here and so are big, dumb movies to go alongside backyard barbecues and sprayon sunscreen. It’s nice when a summer blockbuster comes along and rises above mediocrity, and harebrained quantum storyline aside, Ant-Man and The Wasp is a solid dose of fun that keeps its groan moments low and even manages a good few jokes along the way. While the storyline regarding rescuing Janet from the beyond does seem ridiculous, it’s a convenient way to mash these characters back together after Ant-Man’s detour into the Avengers’ universe. If you head into a theater with overly high expectations for a film like this, I think you have no one else to blame but yourself if you leave disappointed. It’s a sequel, a superhero flick, a tie-in to a bunch of other Marvel characters, and so on and so forth. Of course it’s going to have some problems plot-wise or storywise, maybe a dumb new character or side story that goes nowhere—that’s the trappings of this kind of movie. Bottom line, this Ant-Man sequel is a fun, actionpacked adventure with enough humor and hijinks to fill a couple of hours nicely, and I’m guessing if you enjoyed the first film, this sequel will satisfy. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

Wait ’til Netflix has it NOTHING ........ Don’t waste your time number of interesting traits and character flaws that resurface time and time again, one being her chronic collection of animals. The other however is a bit more interesting. Laura tries to set boundaries with her father, after feeling neglected by Jack as a child. The first boundary is her refusal to take his calls. But as the movie goes on, it becomes clear how hard it is for her to maintain those boundaries. Boundaries could fall under many different genre categories, but it fits together into a nicely assembled jigsaw puzzle. It explores many serious topics like absentee parents, marital and teenage social problems, and drugs. It is a wonderful, fun, and humorous— if somewhat unrealistic—road trip movie.

musical performances (and references and soundtrack), and the use of imagery and subtle moments to tell a story, Hearts Beat Loud is a nuanced coming of age story—for both father and daughter. After owning a record shop for 17 years, Frank, who is about to become an empty nester with his daughter Sam leaving for UCLA to study to become a doctor in the fall, feels that it’s time for a change, but he’s not sure what to do exactly. He also can’t let go of the dream of making it big in music, back from the days when he and his late wife had a band together. So naturally when he and Sam produce a song that is pretty bitchin’, he races to put it on Spotify without telling her. When their song does unexpectedly well, it puts Sam in a place of feeling like she has to choose between music and creativity and medicine and stability. Offerman as Frank is simultaneously burnt out on the hardships of his life—losing his wife young, raising his daughter alone, caring for his senile mother, and trying to sell records for a living in the age of iTunes—and also unbelievably sweet as a loving, goofy father to Sam. While Sam gets ready to leave the only home she’s ever known, she also ends up falling in love with a girl, Rose (American Honey), a young artist she meets at a gallery. The beautiful thing is that the movie (and the other characters in it) doesn’t make a big deal about Sam being a lesbian. Instead, it’s presented simply as a young person falling in love for the first time, weeks before she has to move to the other side of the country. And Sam and Rose are both

BLAST FROM THE

targate, directed by Roland Emmerich (best known for producing Godzilla in 1998), Independence Day (1996), and The Day After Tomorrow (2004), is about a modern-day Egypt that is ruled by the sun god Ra (Jay Davidson). Ra has left an interstellar gateway on Earth, which a professor, Daniel Jackson (James Spader), and retired Army Col. O’Neil (Kurt Russell) must figure out how to open in order to research the inhabitants of the other side, if any, and then seal the gate for good. Full disclosure: This was the first time that I had ever seen anything related to Stargate (there are three films and a TV series spanning from 1994 to 2008). I opted to start with the original film that kicked things off. I knew that Stargate existed but I never knew what it was about or thought twice about it. That being said, I thought the concept behind this film was a little random. I mean it’s “modern-day Egypt” run by a sun god that is technologically advanced and is basically keeping slaves to make his pyramids. If he’s that advanced, then why keep a whole village to himself, take away their right to communicate through reading and writing, and have them make his pyramids? Did I mention that the pyramid that Ra lives in also flies? It’s just odd to combine these two concepts, but I’ll get over that and continue this review. The films and the TV series that follow tell the story of a Stargate that’s basically a bridge between the cosmos and the U.S. After being found on an archeological dig, the U.S. government (of course!) is in charge of keeping the gate under control. Or so they think. The real issue is how to activate it and figure out whether there is something on the other side. In comes kooky Egyptologist Jackson (Spader), who doesn’t have any credibility or a dime to his name. He’s recruited to a classified government group that’s trying to crack the gate’s code at a Colorado military base. Literally 24 hours into being at that base, Jackson reads the symbols and magically opens up the gate. This is the part where he meets O’Neil (Russell), who has some serious issues with guns after losing his son in an accident. Safe to say, O’Neil is retired and rightfully so, as

the first scene shows him sitting in his son’s room staring at a gun in his hands. But, of course, he puts his mental state aside because his country is calling and joins the special operation into the Stargate portal. O’Neil and Jackson team up with a couple of other soldiers to check out what’s on the other side. Because Emmerich is the director of the film, I knew I couldn’t expect much in terms of how the plot was executed. I feel like the story drags on for a while in the beginning, but there are a couple of action points that make the movie worthwhile. The build up to the gate just jumps into their exploration of the desert world—an abrupt jump-cut from one scene to another. Again, it’s just a weirdly interesting concept of an advanced, modern Egypt. Spader’s and Russell’s deliveries of a geeky professor and a hardedge retired colonial are pretty dry. I don’t know if it’s the writing or their acting choices. I’m glad I watched the film because now I know what Stargate is about, but I don’t think it’s the kind of thing I’d watch again. It also didn’t prompt me to start watching the other films or the TV series. (115 min.) Δ —Karen Garcia

black, which the movie doesn’t dwell on. Nor is it a thing that Frank is a white dad raising his black daughter, solo. It just is.

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2—but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of normal life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again. It’s been more than a decade since the Incredibles first burst onto the scene and delighted audiences with its unique nostalgia drenched take on what was then just an emerging powerhouse genre in contemporary cinema And while the film may be a shade darker than the first iteration, this new installment delivers on just about everything it promises and should leave families entertained until the next chapter arrives in theaters (which hopefully comes sooner than a decade and a half). I also wanted to take a minute to commend Bird’s choice to leave cell phones out of the picture, allowing his film to flex its muscles without pocket-sized distractions. It truly speaks to the traditionalist bent of the series, which seems to draw from 1950s era super hero shows and comics, as much as even earlier, “Golden Age” science fiction classics. Bird gives audiences a glimpse of how his generation and those before him viewed the future, and while those dreams may be dated, they still come across as new, exciting, and utterly unique, and that’s pretty incredible.

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom) helms this documentary biopic about beloved cardigan-clad children’s TV host Fred Rogers. It’s easy to dismiss Fred Rogers as “just” a children’s TV host, and a sappy, low-budget one at that, but this documentary reveals just how deeply he cared about children; how hard he worked at helping children through topical issues such as Robert Kennedy’s assassination, divorce, and war; and how seriously he took his role as host of positive children’s programming as foil to what he saw as bad role modeling and encouragement of humanity’s baser instincts in other kids’ programs. This documentary mixes archival footage of his show both off screen and on; interviews with those who knew him and were part of his show such as his wife Joanne Rogers, and members of his cast such as Betty Aberlin (Lady Aberlin) and François Scarborough Clemmons; and particularly memorable guests such as Yo-Yo Ma and Koko the sign language gorilla. There’s even some animation to help illustrate some of the narration about his life. Though I watched Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood as a kid, I really don’t remember much of it, perhaps because Rogers was never heavy-handed or didactic. His main message was love and acceptance. He wanted each child to know he or she was loved and capable of loving. He also wanted kids to know that whoever they are, that’s good enough. It’s about as close to Jesus’s message as you can get, but ironically it was a message that led to backlash by—get this!—conservatives who argued Rogers created a generation of entitled brats. The “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church considered Rogers—an ordained minister, by the way—an enemy too. They actually protested Rogers’ memorial service. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a ringing endorsement! He’s rankling the right hides, but it’s hard to believe such a gentle, sweet, loving person could be so polarizing. Maybe it was simple nostalgia or being warmed by his message, but this documentary had me choked up throughout. Seeing Mr. Rogers gaze with love into a learning disabled child’s eyes, watching him invite African-American cast member François to soak his feet with him in a child’s wading pool during a time when whites and blacks didn’t swim together, or seeing Rogers channel the empathic tiger sock puppet Daniel just got me. It’s not like Rogers was without fault. When he learned that François was gay, that was something that needed hiding for fear it would undermine his program, but Rogers was right on race and right on inclusion of disabled children during a time before such kids were mainstreamed in public schools. It’s also amazing to see Rogers go before congress and argue for the worth of public television. It’s now decades later, and our current president seems bent on dividing our country by race and stripping federal funding from the arts, NPR, and PBS. This documentary is a reminder that there was a tireless champion of tolerance and inclusivity. We could certainly use that again. What makes the film even more poignant is its depiction of Rogers at his lowest. Looking at our culture today, it’s clear his message didn’t prevail. Still, his message was a worthy one and remains so today. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a wonderful celebration of a wonderful man who touched countless lives and exemplified a life well lived.

Festivals PHOTOS COURTESY OF HARMONY CELLARS

BY HAYLEY THOMAS CAIN

Beer, wine, and Harmony SLO County’s tiniest town gets its own wine fest

I

magine, for a moment, William Randolph Hearst arriving in the tiny hamlet of Harmony, population 18. He slides out of his plush Duesenberg Model J, purchased after his high-profile mistress, actress Marion Davies, saw the dazzling vehicle on display at the 1930 Paris Auto Salon. He nods to the chauffeur, fixes his tie, and strolls into the The Harmony Valley Dairy Co-op, founded by Swiss-Italian immigrants in 1901. Hearst’s opulent castle sat (and still sits) just 12 miles northwest in San Simeon, so this was not an uncommon occurrence, according to local lore. Indeed, a constant flow of Hollywood actors—many, guests of Mr. Hearst— arrived in the tiny storybook village off Highway 1 in search of fresh milk, butter, buttermilk, and cheese made in that classic, Old World style. In the 1960s and ’70s, change was in the air. Blown glass and the promise of an idealistic artistic community beckoned a new host of arrivals. Since then, the hamlet has seen restaurants and business ventures come and go. Still, the town is very much the same as it was back in the day, with its minuscule post office, historic creamery building, and tiny chapel still standing. The glass blower still works his magic, creating redhot wonders before your very eyes. However, 2018 marks a turning point in Harmony’s long and rich history. These days, wine is what’s dominating visitors’ minds. That’s thanks to the first-ever Harmony Wine and Beer Festival, kicking off Aug. 4 from 1 to 4 p.m. in “downtown” Harmony. As homage to the unincorporated community’s famed population sign, a total of 18 participating vendors will pour: Castoro Cellars, Cayucos Cellars, Harmony Cellars, Moonstone Cellars, Cass Winery, Niner Wine Estates, Still Waters Vineyard, EOS Winery, Bodega de Edgar Winery, Red Soles Winery, Chamisal Vineyards, Twin Coyotes Winery, Phantom Rivers Wine, Robert Hall Winery, Autry Cellars, Libertine Brewing, Three Stacks and a Rock Brewing, and Earth and Fire Brewing. “These 18 vendors are basically taking over the entire town for the festival, and keeping with that tiny-town theme, we chose a charity that is helping infants. The small-town idea is carried out throughout,” said Harmony Cellars Marketing Director Erin Martin. That beneficiary, Infant Essentials, is a Cambria-based nonprofit that provides infant necessities—including diapers, baby wipes, formula, and car seats—to homeless and low-income infants 0 to 3 years old across the county.

HARMONIOUS FLAVORS The Harmony Wine and Beer Festival takes place Saturday, Aug. 4, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the tiny coastal town of Harmony, population 18. With unlimited beer and wine tasting from 18 regional producers, live music by Bear Market Riot, and local food trucks, this is one massive step forward for the iconic road stop.

Happy in Harmony

The Harmony Wine and Beer Festival takes place Aug. 4 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the town of Harmony, located at 2177 Old Creamery Road. Proceeds go to Infant Essentials, a Cambria-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides infant necessities. For tickets and information, go to harmonywineandbeerfestival.com.

Infant Essentials Founder Heather Markham said she was on her way to purchase party materials for her child’s first birthday party when she stopped in her tracks. Her heart ached and her stomach dropped. “I saw a homeless family on the side of the road in Cambria and they had a stroller with them. It broke my heart. I didn’t know what kind of services were needed or what was available to families and babies in this situation,” she said. After some research, Markham realized homeless and low-income parents are often caught between a rock and a hard place. “Neither Food Stamps nor WIC programs offer diapers or even diaper discounts, and none of SLO County shelters or day centers have the ability to store or distribute goods like diapers,” she said. “Diapers are a very expensive thing but they are very, very needed.” Proceeds from your ticket will go toward that important cause, and attendees can expect unlimited tastings. Expect live music by Bear Market Riot and room to dance and drink among the scenic, hilly landscape. Parked near the Old Creamery Building, the Harmony Valley Creamery Scoop Truck, Boni’s Tacos, and Hurricane Kitchen will offer plenty to nosh on. You’ll also find fresh updates to the town, thanks to current owner Alan Vander Horst, a veteran dairyman himself. If you haven’t stopped by in a while, you’ll likely notice revamped native landscaping; smoothed, repaved bricks; and flecks of abalone nestled within the old fashioned pathways. If you’ve ever traveled to nearby Harmony Cellars, you know how that subtle ocean breeze adds a certain romantic vibe to your visit. The winery, which will be pouring at the event,

harbors its own unique history connected to the town. “James Barlogio, my great-grandfather, was one of the founding members of the Harmony Valley Creamery, established more than 100 years ago,” Harmony Cellars owner Kim Mulligan said, adding that the winery produces a special tribute wine in honor of her locally famous ancestor. “Part of the original creamery building still sits in Harmony. My great-grandfather loved wine and used to make zinfandel in his basement during Prohibition. My mother has fond memories of Grandpa Barlogio taking the grandkids down to his basement for ‘secret’ tastes of wine.” Kim and her husband/winemaker, Chuck, established Harmony Cellars in 1989, and the winery and tasting room sits on part of Kim’s great-grandfather’s original landholdings in Harmony. “I think my great grandpa would be pleased to have this wine produced as a tribute to him,” Kim mused. I agree. But the real question is ... did he ever meet William Randolph Hearst? And did Hearst ever have a little Harmony wine with his Harmony cheese? Δ Hayley Thomas Cain is dreaming of fresh buttermilk. She can be reached at hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

H AYLEY’S BITES FOOD FOR THOUGHT Sunny disposition: SLO Solar Cooks will be presenting a cooking demonstration on July 21 that is sure to heat up your imagination.

The class takes place at Davies Farm at 5009 Jespersen Road in SLO from 12:30 to 2 p.m. … Art isn’t just in museums: The 2018 Central Coast Packaging and Design Competition has selected its wine label art winners!

On offer: small tacos, tamales, and premium tequila, plus an elevated ambiance. Stop by Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. (themarkslo.com) … Thomas Hill Organics in Paso Robles has a new menu for summer, and it includes Hawaiian snapper with braised leeks; red oak fire short ribs with polenta; and duck confit with forest shrooms, risotto, and ramps (learn more at thomashillorganics.com) … National Mac and Cheese Day is July 14, so I suggest you head directly to Black Sheep in SLO and order the mac topped with bacon, jalapeños, and tritip (blacksheepslo.com)! ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain believes art is everywhere, if you only know where to look.

Woodstock’s Pizza and San Luis Obispo just go together, like leftover crust and ranch dressing or gum alley and obnoxious selfies! Bet you didn’t know SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon once wore an apron and hand tossed that signature folded-over dough? That addictive cinnabread? Created by a Cal Poly student, as are so many of the restaurant’s unique flavor combos. Owners Jeff and Laura Ambrose have built a Woodstock’s Pizza empire that’s flourished in California college towns for 30-plus years. Now, SLO’s iconic Higuera Street pizza joint will expand to the space next door on Osos Street. Coming soon, expect 24 beer taps, including kombucha and cold draft coffee; games like Jenga and beer pong; a fireplace; expanded arcade; more bottled beer selections; plus walls covered in images of Bishop Peak, skateboards, and other SLO-approved “flair.” The indooroutdoor space is supposed to feel like a backyard, even though it’ll be entirely enclosed. Sounds crazy, but hey, they actually got me to like stuff like cilantro and zucchini on my pizza. Who knows! This new pizza wonderland might even entice me to stay inside on the balmiest summer day. Who needs vitamin D when you’ve got vitamin P?! Woodstock’s Pizza is located at 1000 Higuera St. in SLO. For more information and updates, go to woodstocksslo.com. ∆

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

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Send your secrets for how to increase your capacity for love to: truthrooster@gmail.com. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your key theme right now is growth. Let’s dig in and analyze its nuances. 1. Not all growth is good for you. It may stretch you too far too fast—beyond your capacity to integrate and use it. 2. Some growth that is good for you doesn’t feel good to you. It might force you to transcend comforts that are making you stagnant, and that can be painful. 3. Some growth that’s good for you may meet resistance from people close to you; they might prefer you to remain just as you are, and may even experience your growth as a problem. 4. Some growth that isn’t particularly good for you may feel pretty good. For instance, you could enjoy working to improve a capacity or skill that is irrelevant to your long-term goals. 5. Some growth is good for you in some ways, and not so good in other ways. You have to decide if the trade-off is worth it. 6. Some growth is utterly healthy for you, feels pleasurable, and inspires other people.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can’t sing with someone else’s mouth, Taurus. You can’t sit down and settle into a commanding new power spot with someone else’s butt. Capiche? I also want to tell you that it’s best if you don’t try to dream with someone else’s heart, nor should you imagine you can finetune your relationship with yourself by pushing someone else to change. But here’s an odd fact: You can enhance your possibility for success by harnessing or borrowing or basking in other people’s luck. Especially in the coming weeks.

GEMINI

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Lucky vibes are coalescing in your vicinity. Scouts and recruiters are hovering. Helpers, fairy godmothers, and future playmates are growing restless waiting for you to ask them for favors. Therefore, I hereby authorize you to be imperious, regal, and overflowing with self-respect. I encourage you to seize exactly what you want, not what you’re “supposed” to want. Or else be considerate, appropriate, modest, and full of harmonious caution. CUT! CUT! Delete that “be considerate” sentence. The Libra part of me tricked me into saying it. And this is one time when people of the Libra persuasion are allowed to be free from the compulsion to balance and moderate. You have a mandate to be the show, not watch the show.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emily Dickinson wrote 1,775 poems—an average of one every week for 34 years. I’d love to see you launch an enduring, deep-rooted project that will require similar amounts of stamina, persistence, and dedication. Are you ready to expand your vision of what’s possible for you to accomplish? The current astrological omens suggest that the next two months will be an excellent time to commit yourself to a Great Work that you will give your best to for the rest of your long life!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): What’s the biggest lie in my life? There are several candidates. Here’s one: I pretend I’m nonchalant about one of my greatest failures; I act as if I’m not distressed by the fact that the music I’ve created has never received the listenership it should it have. How about you, Sagittarius? What’s the biggest lie in your life? What’s most false or dishonest or evasive about you? Whatever it is, the immediate future will be a favorable time to transform your relationship with it. You now have extraordinary power to tell yourself liberating truths. Three weeks from now, you could be a more authentic version of yourself than you’ve ever been.

CANCER

CAPRICORN

(June 21-July 22): I pay tribute to your dizzying courage, you wise fool. I stage-whisper “Congratulations!” as you slip away from your hypnotic routine and wander out to the edge of mysterious joy. With a crazy grin of encouragement and my fist pressed against my chest, I salute your efforts to transcend your past. I praise and exalt you for demonstrating that freedom is never permanent but must be reclaimed and reinvented on a regular basis. I cheer you on as you avoid every temptation to repeat yourself, demean yourself, and chain yourself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I’m feeling a bit helpless as I watch you messing with that bad but good stuff that is so wrong but right for you. I am rendered equally inert as I observe you playing with the strong but weak stuff that’s interesting but probably irrelevant. I fidget and sigh as I monitor the classy but trashy influence that’s angling for your attention; and the supposedly fast-moving process that’s creeping along so slowly; and the seemingly obvious truth that would offer you a much better lesson if only you would see it for the chewy riddle that it is. What should I do about my predicament? Is there any way I can give you a boost? Maybe the best assistance I can offer is to describe to you what I see. (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Psychologist Paul Ekman has compiled an extensive atlas of how emotions are revealed in our faces. “Smiles are probably the most underrated facial expressions,” he has written, “much more complicated than most people realize. There are dozens of smiles, each differing in appearance and in the message expressed.” I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because your assignment in the coming weeks—should you choose to accept it—is to explore and experiment with your entire repertoire of smiles. I’m confident that life will conspire to help you carry out this

LIBRA

(May 21-June 20): You wouldn’t attempt to cure a case of hiccups by repeatedly smacking your head against a wall, right? You wouldn’t use an anti-tank rocket launcher to eliminate the mosquito buzzing around your room, and you wouldn’t set your friend’s hair on fire as a punishment for arriving late to your rendezvous at the café. So don’t overreact to minor tweaks of fate, my dear Gemini. Don’t over-medicate tiny disturbances. Instead, regard the glitches as learning opportunities. Use them to cultivate more patience, expand your tolerance, and strengthen your character.

VIRGO

task. More than at any time since your birthday in 2015, this is the season for unleashing your smiles.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now and then you go through phases when you don’t know what you need until you stumble upon it. At times like those, you’re wise not to harbor fixed ideas about what you need or where to hunt for what you need. Metaphorically speaking, a holy grail might show up in a thrift store. An eccentric stranger may provide you with an accidental epiphany at a bus stop or a convenience store. Who knows? A crucial clue may even jump out at you from a spam email or a reality TV show. I suspect that the next two weeks might be one of those odd grace periods for you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Reverse psychology” is when you convince people to do what you wish they would do by shrewdly suggesting that they do the opposite of what you wish they would do. “Reverse censorship” is when you write or speak the very words or ideas that you have been forbidden to express. “Reverse cynicism” is acting like it’s chic to express glee, positivity, and enthusiasm. “Reverse egotism” is bragging about what you don’t have and can’t do. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to carry out all these reversals, as well as any other constructive or amusing reversals you can dream up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Poet Emily Dickinson once revealed to a friend that there was only one Commandment she ever obeyed: “Consider the Lilies.” Japanese novelist Natsume Sōseki told his English-speaking students that the proper Japanese translation for “I love you” is Tsuki ga tottemo aoi naa, which literally means “The moon is so blue tonight.” In accordance with current astrological omens, Pisces, I’m advising you to be inspired by Dickinson and Sōseki. More than any other time in 2018, your duty in the coming weeks is to be lyrical, sensual, aesthetic, imaginative, and festively non-literal. ∆
