ozens of Americans were killed in a string of unrelated mass shootings at the end of July and beginning of August, and support is building among Republican legislators for federal gun control measures like those outlined in a bill authored by Congressman Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara). In a televised address on Aug. 5 regarding back-to-back-to-back mass shootings in California, Texas, and Ohio, President Donald Trump announced his support for “red flag laws” that would make it easier for law enforcement officials to temporarily take firearms from individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others. “We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said in his address. “That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.” The Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019, House Resolution 1236, was reintroduced by Congressman Carbajal in February, and would set up a grant program to incentivize state, tribal, and local governments to adopt laws aimed at reducing gun deaths and injuries. Extreme risk laws allow families or law enforcement to obtain court orders temporarily prohibiting individuals who pose a threat from owning firearms. If such a prohibition is ordered, the laws also allow law enforcement to physically take firearms out of an individual’s possession temporarily. If passed, the act would make grant funding available to jurisdictions that adopt extreme risk gun laws, allowing law enforcement and court implementation training.

“You don’t just want these laws enacted,” Carbajal told New Times. “You want as many law enforcement officers and community members to understand what they are and how they’re implemented. Training and awareness. That’s part of what my bill would do.” Advocates consider extreme risk laws a critical tool in gun violence prevention, as so often after mass shootings, it’s revealed that family members and law enforcement in the shooter’s community saw dangerous and concerning behavior from the individual before the shooting occurred. Often, the ability to intervene in these circumstances is limited, but extreme risk laws enable that intervention, Carbajal said. Some states already have extreme risk laws in place. After the Isla Vista shooting in May 2014, California passed a law allowing law enforcement and family members to get court-ordered “gun violence restraining orders” prohibiting dangerous individuals from possessing firearms. That went into effect in January 2016, and since then, most counties in the state have rarely granted gun violence restraining orders. San Luis Obispo County has issued three gun violence restraining orders since the law went into effect, according to data collected by the state Department of Justice. While Santa Barbara County has issued more than 20, it’s the exception. Santa Barbara County has used gun violence restraining orders more than almost any other county in the state, second only to Los Angeles. The Extreme Risk Protection Order Act has more than 130 co-sponsors in the House, and Carbajal said it’s likely to move forward soon. —Kasey Bubnash

Paso quickly addresses affordable housing shortage

Oak Park is a four-phase project that will total more than 300 affordable housing units when finished and replace the 148 units of deteriorated public housing that existed on the site. The third phase was completed in July, and the final construction and redevelopment phase recently began. In Paso Robles, the grand jury report identified that the length and cost of the building permitting process is a major barrier to housing construction, especially low-income housing. According to a city staff report, over the years, Paso established a Housing Constraints and Opportunities Committee made up of public members to advise the council on improving housing production. The city also created a Building Liaison Group that includes local architects, engineers, and builders to work with the Community Development Department to improve the plan check and inspection processes. The plan check is a 30-day first review and a 14-day recheck process—approval of housing permits occur within a 12-month time period. In an effort to make the developing process a little easier, the city reduced developer impact

Paso Robles might be ahead of the San Luis Obispo County curve in terms of attempting to mitigate the affordable housing shortage in the city. At its Aug. 6 City Council meeting, city staffers laid out ongoing efforts to improve its process of creating affordable housing within city limits as a direct response to the June 20 SLO County grand jury report, “Affordable housing, an urgent problem for our community.” The report identified a shortage of housing to meet the needs of individuals making extremely low and low-income wages, countywide. While Paso Robles has an existing affordable housing project, the report stated that the city could still improve its housing policies. “I would remind us that our Community Development Director Warren Frace, Councilmember [John] Hamon, and myself the last two weeks were at the ribbon cutting for phase three of Oak Park redevelopment, which just opened for occupancy 90 new lowincome units including those for homeless veterans. We are obviously moving ahead,” City Councilmember Fred Strong said at the meeting.

As another ongoing effort, the city is planning to update its Housing Element, which was last updated in 2014. At that time, the city will look into the possibility of inclusionary housing units and nontraditional housing options (modular homes, pre-fabricated homes, and mobile home parks). —Karen Garcia

Pismo’s still recovering from the rains of 2017

The city of Pismo Beach declared a state of emergency in January 2017 after heavy rains led to storm drain failures on Highway 101, significant flooding in roads and businesses, and collapsing bluffs along the coast. More than two years and thousands of dollars in state and federal emergency funding later, Pismo still hasn’t started construction on a series of projects that could help prevent similar or worse situations in the future. At a meeting on Aug. 6, Pismo City Council consented to a status update on various repairs and prevention work associated with damages caused by the rains of 2017, notifications that are mandatory for projects receiving emergency funding. Although the storms of 2017 racked up an estimated $3 million to $6 million in damages, according to a staff report, Ben Fine, Pismo’s director of public works, said nothing was completely “catastrophic.” Houses weren’t destroyed and residents weren’t killed or injured. The rains caused several storm drain failures, according to the staff report, flooding two hotels on Price Street, blocking the city’s storm drain outfall, and scattering debris along Highway 101, Price Street, Franklin Drive, and various sidewalks and lawns. Portions of several coastal bluffs fell, and Fine said that while Pismo allows nature to take its course on some bluffs, others, like the one at Ocean Boulevard, need to be reinforced. “On Ocean Boulevard, [the bluff failure] is threatening the street there,” Fine said, “which is a problem.” Now the city is working on a coastal access project at Ocean Boulevard, which Fine said will include the installation of bluff protection measures, a wall, new beach access stairs, benches, storm drain improvements, and a sidewalk and path connecting that access point with others along Pismo’s coast. “It’s many projects all wrapped up into one,” Fine said. Actual work on the project, however, is fairly stagnant. The city has received several “reimbursement checks” totaling $101,833 from the state and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help repair damages at various Pismo sites under FEMA purview, but Fine said all of that funding went toward portions of the project’s environmental review. The review is ongoing and will likely take about another year to finish. City staff are still evaluating the sites under FEMA purview—storm drains at Franklin and Harbor View avenues and near Dolphin Bay Resort, storm damage

VIEWER DISCRETION at City Hall, and bluff failures at Ebb Tide Park—and getting estimates and proposals for permanent restorations. The city has also received authorization from the Federal Highway Administration through the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for engineering design and environmental studies for projects related to the bluff damages on Ocean Boulevard, storm drain failures on Cliff Avenue at Ocean Boulevard, and slope and road damages on Price Canyon Road, according to the staff report. Costs for those projects will be reimbursed by a little more than 88 percent by Caltrans with a nearly 12 percent city match. —Kasey Bubnash

San Simeon post office closes due to safety concerns

The San Simeon post office that was inside the Hearst Corporation-owned Sebastian building stopped providing services on Aug. 1 due to safety concerns. Dean Cameron, a leasing real estate specialist for the U.S. Postal Service, said the Postal Service was already proposing to relocate the retail office last year, due to expected building renovations and the imminent end of their lease on Jan. 31, 2020. “As part of [The Hearst Corporation] preparation to remodel, they had a structural engineer go in the building for inspection, and the engineer recommended that in the event of a severe wind storm or an earthquake, the building could face significant damage,” Cameron said. The Hearst Corporation shared that information with the Postal Service, he said, and after consulting with the Postal Services’ safety experts, it was decided that the employees of the San Simeon location should vacate the building. According to the safety experts, if the Postal Service didn’t vacate the building, it would not only put the employees at risk but its customers as well. “And Hearst was in concurrence with that, which is why they’re having the other two businesses vacate Aug. 12,” he said. “So what really happened is our process just got speeded up by about five or six months.” There are 91 P.O. box holders at the San Simeon post office who have been notified that they will be receiving their mail at the Cambria post office. Cameron said the Postal Service is working with the Hearst Corporation to quickly create a temporary location for the P.O. box holders so they don’t have to make the 9-mile trek to Cambria. He held an already scheduled meeting for the San Simeon community on Aug. 5 to discuss two spots for the proposed relocation. Cameron said the Postal Service could work with the Hearst Corporation to find another area for the post office on its property or look 2 miles south in the hotel district. San Simeon residents have until Aug. 30 to submit comments to Cameron at Real Estate Specialist-Leasing Team, 1300 Evans Ave., suite 200, San Francisco, CA 94188-8200. Jim Saunders, co-owner of the Hearst Ranch Winery, said the Hearst Corporation looks at the buildings it owns from time to time, and the Sebastian building was one of them.

6 • New Times • August 8 - August 15, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

“It was just decided that the building, having been built in 1852 and then moved to its current location in 1878, probably needed a little repair work,” Saunders said. He believes the corporation is doing its due diligence in inspecting its buildings, repairing them, and working with the businesses within the Sebastian to find temporary locations. In terms of a timeline for repair of the Sebastian building, Saunders said it could take about a year and a half to two years as it goes through the permitting process and historical review. The Hearst Ranch Winery tasting room and Sebastian Café, which were also inside the Sebastian, will open across the street in a wooden warehouse. The warehouse was an event venue that Saunders said wasn’t really open to the public before, but it’s a beautiful location that they’ll now be able to enjoy. Sebastian Café will be run from a food truck that’s operated by La Cosecha in Paso Robles. —Karen Garcia

Database error leads to warrantless police search and arrests

An error in a San Luis Obispo County law enforcement database led SLO police officers to conduct a search of a man’s home without a warrant on July 10 while investigating SLOPD Chief Deanna Cantrell’s missing firearm. Based on a tip from Morro Bay police, SLO police officers searched the home of Cheyne Orndoff, 33, believing he was on probation, subject to searches without probable cause, and possibly in possession of Cantrell’s weapon. All three of those premises turned out to be false. Orndoff didn’t have the chief’s gun, and, in a mistake that was discovered weeks later, a police database had misidentified Orndoff as being on probation. After the search, Orndoff and his wife, Vanessa Bedroni, were arrested on suspicion of child endangerment. Law enforcement officials said the officers discovered methamphetamine and needles in the home with two children, and the SLO County District Attorney’s Office charged the couple with felonies.

by Jayson Mellom

Orndoff and Bedroni pleaded not guilty to the charges. While Orndoff declined to comment, on a GoFundMe page for his legal fight, he wrote that he believes they were arrested for having a “messy” house, “to support [Cantrell’s] illegal entry into my home.” “The chief sent officers to my home without a warrant, and they claimed I was on probation, but I was not, so they had a right to raid my home,” Orndoff wrote. “They poured trash cans on the floor, before taking photos to prove we [were] messy. They also left our refrigerator open so when we bailed out of jail, our food was rotten.” SLO City Attorney Christine Dietrick contended that the police officers responded appropriately based on the information at their disposal. “Based on the facts available to me, I have absolute confidence our officers acted properly in the best interest of the safety of those kids,” Dietrick said. “Initially why they went out was the gun. It very quickly became apparent to the officers on the scene that this wasn’t a gun search case; this was a child endangerment case.” Cantrell didn’t return a request for comment from New Times. Assistant SLO County District Attorney Eric Dobroth declined to discuss the details of the criminal case. He said the probation database error was likely due to confusion on a criminal case that involved Orndoff’s brother, Cole Orndoff, who is on probation for falsely impersonating Cheyne. The database— called the Criminal Justice Information System—is maintained by the county and courts. “What we now know is there appears to have been a glitch,” Dietrick said. Δ —Peter Johnson

anta Barbara County law enforcement officials were investigating the theft of $17,000 worth of agricultural chemicals from a farm outside Santa Maria in 2017 when they uncovered a local black market for stolen farming equipment. Investigators with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office found that the chemicals—pesticides and fertilizer— were being stored at a facility where they also later recovered several hundred dollars’ worth of stolen construction equipment. They were able to link that equipment back to a suspect who led investigators to several others, including two who were identified by law enforcement after a $7,000 ATV was reported stolen from a farm on West Betteravia Road and then spotted by its owner in the yard of a Santa Maria home. A stolen $1,400 injection pump was found with it. Another suspect was arrested that summer after allegedly snatching a $25,000 equipment trailer and $1,400 worth of other materials from a farm near Bonita School Road months earlier. The investigations into those crimes eventually revealed more than one location in Santa Maria where stolen agricultural equipment and materials are re-sold illegally through a black market. The discovery and the incidents that led to it weren’t all that surprising to law enforcement officials, since farms, ranches, and vineyards—with their vast and often sparsely occupied acreage—are frequent targets of theft on the Central Coast and in California in general. In an effort to better prevent agricultural thefts, the way those crimes are tracked and prosecuted is changing. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 224 into law on July 12. When it goes into effect in January 2020, it will create a new penal code specifically for grand thefts of agricultural property and equipment. Under existing law, any stolen item worth more than $950 is classified as grand theft, punishable by misdemeanor or felony, according to the bill text. Senate Bill 224 won’t change that, but it will create another category specifically for incidents in which agricultural equipment worth more than $950 is stolen. Sgt. Jeff Nichols, supervisor of the Rural Crimes Unit for the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office, said the new categorization will likely help law enforcement and public officials keep better data on where and when the most

STOLEN GOODS The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office uncovered a local black market for stolen farming equipment in the summer of 2017 worth thousands of dollars. Items, including a pressure washer and a welder, were reported stolen from Santa Maria farms.

serious thefts of agricultural property are happening. “And it seems to me it’s a mechanism for them to be able to identify those crimes and fines associated with those crimes,” Nichols said, “so [the profits] can go back to the ag community instead of being absorbed by the state.” Along with creating a new penal code, SB 224 will also ensure that any fines paid by those convicted of grand ag theft will be funneled back into the state’s rural crime prevention programs. The Central Coast and Central Valley both have rural crime prevention programs that bring together law enforcement agencies, district attorneys, and agricultural commissioners from several California counties to deter rural and agricultural-related crimes. Both SLO and Santa Barbara counties participate in the Central Coast Rural Crime Prevention Program, and although Nichols said agriculture-related crimes aren’t as common on the coast as they are in the Central Valley, it is an issue here. Between 2015 and 2018, the SLO County Rural Crimes Unit investigated nearly 600 ag-related incidents, according to data compiled by Nichols. About 113 of those cases involved animal abuse and neglect issues, 177 were non-criminal incident reports, and 146 involved thefts of agricultural property. Nichols said they’ve investigated reports of stolen tractors, ATVs, miscellaneous equipment, fuel, and even crops—thieves often snag produce directly from orchards and fields.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 224 into law on July 12. When it goes into effect in January 2020, it will create a new penal code specifically for grand thefts of agricultural property and equipment.

These thefts can be financially devastating to local farmers and ranchers, according to Brent Burchett, executive director of the SLO County Farm Bureau. “For a lot of farmers, they can’t just go out and buy new equipment in time to get their crop planted or harvested,” Burchett wrote in an email to New Times. “The frontline of defense for farmers is the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office Rural Crimes Unit, and we know that the more we can support their work, the more crimes we can abate in rural areas of SLO County.” SB 224 takes the proceeds from fines imposed on people convicted of stealing farm equipment and earmarks those funds specifically for the prevention of such rural crimes. So while Burchett said agricultural-related crime will always be a problem for Farm Bureau members, having an additional revenue stream will help support the work being done to prevent it. Although no one is sure yet how exactly the fines collected through the new law will be allotted or used, Santa Barbara County Deputy District Attorney John DeChaine said the creation of a penal code specific to agricultural grand thefts will help law enforcement better track where crimes are occurring and how to best use resources in combating those crimes. DeChaine, who often helps prosecute rural crimes, said it’s important to know where thefts are occurring so law enforcement agencies can divert funding, staff, and prevention efforts to those places. “If the charges are simply grand theft,” he said, “there’s little ability to track whether they’re in more rural areas or more cosmopolitan areas.” ∆ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

has been working to keep the facility open 24 hours and create an additional 10 beds. The facility currently operates from 4:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. (more recently 9 a.m.), but Lewis said those hours have hindered ECHO from providing needed services to the people who want them. “So at 9 a.m. we might have a mom and her 2-week-old; she has to go out in the community and navigate her day,” Lewis said. If ECHO gets the OK from the Atascadero Planning Commission—a hearing is set for Aug. 6—and the City Council, Lewis said the mom in the scenario would be able to be with her infant in a safe environment out of the heat or cold all day. The approval would also allow the facility to continue to increase its programming, which includes financial literacy, parenting classes, and other opportunities for children, such as a scholarship to the local Boys & Girls Club. The increasing number of individuals experiencing homelessness isn’t unique to SLO County. Long Beach saw a 1.7 percent increase and Kern County reported a 64 percent increase. However, three regions saw decreases: San Diego County (down 11.5 percent), Santa Barbara County (down 3 percent), and Pasadena (down 5.7 percent). According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, the fair market rent for a two-bedroom apartment in SLO County increased by 17.8 percent from 2017 to 2019; whereas, the average hourly wage for renters increased by only 9.2 percent. “The data that has been most clearly shown to be correlated with the rates of homelessness in a particular community has to do with the cost of housing and housing affordability for low-income renters,” Lewis said. ∆

ea lettuce lives to be thrashed by salt water. Paper thin, opaque, and a little rubbery, it spends life on the rocks that live in the intertidal zone, constantly battered by the foam that crashes onto the shore—unless, of course, the tide’s out. A soft earthy green enveloped in the curlicues of itself, the algae also known as seaweed cuddles up next to likeminded cousins such as rockweed, a thicker, darker brown algae that kind of looks like a fanned out, soft coral. Both are edible, and, yes, people do eat them. There are thousands of other seaweeds or macroalgae moving around in ocean water that are also edible. But not all of them are tasty, and you’ve got to know how to cook them. The ladies at Kelpful—Melissa Hanson, Alycia Drube, and Jules Marsh—have been experimenting with flavors for months now and are eager to share their experience with others. Fifteen to 20 people gather around the Oak Creek Commons kitchen island in Paso Robles on July 28 to attend a Kelpful class and dinner featuring sea veggies hand-harvested from the Estero Bluffs. Dried seaweed sits on every countertop in containers and paper bags, waiting for its designated treatment: to get coarsely chopped, pulverized in a food processor, ripped apart in big chunks. To get blanched, boiled, baked, or toasted. “The whole point of this class is to show you that there’s lots of seaweed out there that you can eat that doesn’t come with sushi,” Drube says. The dinner menu tonight includes a compound butter with dried nori flakes; a California sea greens salad incorporating sea lettuce, rockweed, and a couple of other seaweeds; blanched shellfish in white wine and garlic with nori flakes; and pesto with giant kelp (aka macrocystis). “We hope that everyone will leave here with at least one way you can include sea vegetables into your diet,” Hanson says. “I eat a lot of seaweed. ... I put it in my coffee. I eat it on my eggs.” Most of the folks in attendance haven’t really eaten much seaweed in their lives but have heard about the health benefits. It’s a good source of calcium and iodine, can be rich in protein, and has vitamins

and minerals such as vitamin K. Plus, umami. You know, that special “fifth taste” everyone and their designated cooking partners are hell-bent on adding to their dishes. “More people are starting to eat seaweed across the U.S., but what people are eating is imported from Asia, and the same varieties grow here,” Hanson says. The varieties aren’t carbon copies of what grows on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, but they are similar. Versions of nori, wakame, and kombu all grow off the California coast, and you can harvest seaweed for personal use with a standard state fishing license that allows up to 10 pounds per day. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife also issues commercial permits for wild seaweed harvesting; however, the ladies at Kelpful have bigger ambitions than that. They want to farm it, and they’re not the only ones. Farming seaweed in the ocean isn’t new to the world, it’s just something that’s relatively new to the United States. Over the last decade, seaweed farms have multiplied on the East Coast in New England states like Maine and Connecticut. And while there are several businesses in California that want to farm seaweed off the coast, the state isn’t quite there yet. “The end goal is to put a farm in deeper water and grow it where it wants to grow— and not deplete the environment,” Drube tells the crowded kitchen, adding that they are at the beginning stages of what will probably be a long process. “We’re somewhat inventing this as we go along with farmers up and down the coast.”

waters. It belongs to Daniel and Antoinette Marquez and their cosmetics company PharmerSea. The 25-acre site off the coast of Goleta has been continually leased since the 1970s and historically used for seaweed research in conjunction with UC Santa Barbara. Daniel Marquez said they took on the lease in 2015 or 2016, but changing the name on that lease took a couple of years. “One of the reasons it took so long for my lease to get renewed with my name on it is that there was nobody else; there was nothing else to compare it to,” Marquez said. “We’re kind of like grassroots. We’re starting this thing.” Although the lease application renewal was granted, Marquez now faces a hurdle known as the California Coastal Commission before he can put a line in the water. He said Coastal Commission staffers have already bounced back his application for a coastal development permit a couple of times. He’s working on another round, but said he’s frustrated. “We are the best stewards that you’ll possibly have because we need the oceans to be healthy for us to be successful,” Marquez said. “The regulations we have here in place in California are good, we just need to figure out some way to get through this process in a reasonable amount of time.” In addition to the time it takes to go back and forth with staffers, applicants then have to wait months to go before the commission. “That’s insane,” he said. “You’re looking at over three years before you even get a line in the water ... and thousands of dollars.” Karen Gray, who worked as a commission staffer for years and now works for Green Wave, a nonprofit dedicated to spreading the word about ocean farming, compared the back-andforth between staffers and applicants to a very slow game of tennis. “Questions lead to more questions,” she said. Although the Coastal Act that created the commission has a provision in it that

Although there are a number of shellfish operations growing oysters or mussels in state waters, California hasn’t issued a new lease for marine aquaculture in more than 20 years, Lovell said. Part of the reason for that is there haven’t been many applications submitted. “The leases are initiated by growers or applicants that want to apply for them ... . Demand is one factor,” Lovell said. “So that kind of begs the question: Why hasn’t there been demand? But part of that may have to do with uncertainty about whether or not it will get approved.” Finding a spot in the ocean that could be leased for growing purposes isn’t easy.

Department of Fish and Wildlife and a permit from the California Coastal Commission, the Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Public Health, and a handful of other agencies also need to weigh in. “The list goes on and on,” he said. “There’s a lot of projects that are kind of testing the waters, so to speak. There are quite a few people who are interested ... and it’s kind of forcing the regulators to come up with a more formulaic method with which to approve.”

DINNER IS SERVED Jules Marsh (left) and Melissa Hanson from Kelpful dish up a seaweed feast to hungry diners during an educational dinner in July.

Path forward

Gray has worked for Green Wave for about two years. The goal is to set up a pilot project similar to the ones Green Wave has already established on the East Coast—that can be used to teach aspiring farmers how to grow seaweed and shellfish—but Gray said most of her work for the nonprofit has been dedicated to policy. “How much time and money is required to invest before you could even stick a line in the water and grow—that’s a huge barrier. And the industry hasn’t even kicked off yet,” she said. “What’s being encouraged really, if there’s this huge economic barrier to entry, is that the big corporations will come in.” But, she said, the industry has Coastal Commission buy-in to create guidelines for how to best design projects, which could take at least a couple of years. Plus, there is some movement. At the moment, a couple of pilot seaweed farming projects are operating on existing leases. Sunken Seaweed worked out a deal with the Port of San Diego to use a quarter-acre of the port’s existing lease to demonstrate seaweed farming in San Diego Bay in collaboration with San Diego State University researchers. The port approved the pilot project in April 2018. New Times reached out to Sunken Seaweed founders with questions but didn’t get a response back before press time. Salt Point Seaweed is working with Hog Island Oyster Company in Tomales Bay, using the shellfish operation’s lease on a pilot farm with researchers from UC Berkley. In 2017, Salt Point started growing seaweed alongside Hog Island’s oysters and monitoring the resulting carbon and nitrogen levels in the water. The permits granted to the two seaweed companies were for experimental growing and research. Neither is able to sell those farmed sea veggies commercially, Gray said. “Sometimes I think, ‘Oh let’s just pack up and head back to the East Coast.’ ... But it’s really needed here and there’s some great interest,” Gray said. “There are many farmers in the wings who have come to me and are interested.” More data needs to be collected on what farming seaweed in the ocean actually does to the environment, Gray said, as the industry tries to gain a foothold in California.

Spencer Marley puts tongs through the steam coming out of a deep pot and moves around some grapestone—a red seaweed—that he just pulled off the rocks at the Estero Bluffs. He’s frying it up for Luba Scherschun and John Moreland to try. Behind him, Estero Bay crashes onto the shoreline. Savory, with a vague taste of bacon, the grapestone is definitely fresh off the beach, complete with a little crunch of sand. The couple is on a tour with Marley Family Seaweeds at the end of a weekend spent in Paso Robles. Scherschun decided she need a little adventure and is happy she came across this one. After spending about an hour perusing the vegetation attached to partially submerged rocks, wading out into the surf to see what they could find, and plucking their prizes, Marley is now making a ramen for the couple from the seaweed they harvested. Leaning over a camp stove, Marley adds garlic, ginger, and scallion to the pot with a little bit of avocado oil. Scherschun comments on how good it smells as Marley talks about the benefits of consuming seaweed. “It’s this amazing, flavorful, mineraland nutrient-rich superfood,” Marley says. “The Japanese figured that out thousands of years ago, and we just realized it.” He adds water and seaweed—kombu, rockweed, sea lettuce, and giant kelp—to the pot, bringing it to a boil and dropping in ramen noodles, before dishing it up in bowls with chopsticks for the seaweed adventurers to eat on the beach. Marley has been taking people on seaweed harvesting adventures for three or four months now. He’s had a commercial harvesting permit for about six months, and recently harvested about 300 pounds of seaweed from the Big Sur coastline—his biggest haul yet. He cleaned it, dried it, and will sell it at farmers’ markets in North County.

“The science is there, but we really need to know more and make it robust,” she said. Not only does research need to be completed on seaweed as a potential food, energy, and fiber source, but for the potential benefits and pitfalls farming it could have on the ocean environment. A research paper published in 2018 from UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management about the economic feasibility of a seaweed farming industry in Southern California spoke about some of the benefits. Those include absorbing nutrients that are contained in runoff, such as nitrogen, and moderating ocean acidification. “Seaweeds are net nutrient sinks, which limits their environmental footprint,” the paper states. “No pesticide or freshwater inputs are required to grow seaweed in the Southern California [waters]. This is particularly important given the region’s limited water resources and frequent bouts with drought.” Farming seaweed, though, isn’t relegated to the ocean. A handful of seaweed producers in California are doing it on land in seawater circulation systems. Doug Bush with Cultured Abalone in Goleta has been producing abalone in tanks on dry land for more than two decades. The operation harvests kelp from those administrative kelp beds in the ocean and has grown some red seaweeds in tanks alongside the abalone for the past 15 years. Both are food sources for the abalone. “We also sell those red seaweeds as direct products,” Bush said. “To have a fresh local food product that is not reliant on further stress on our freshwater system is kind of a good thing, and it’s unique. ... It’s something that’s kind of emblematic of California agriculture.” Although much of the seaweed Cultured Abalone grows is put back into the shellfish, demand for seaweed is something that’s new and growing, he said. Eventually, Bush said, he’s interested in farming seaweed/kelp out in the open water, but the permitting to do a project like PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM that is difficult and WILD COOK Spencer Marley of Marley Family Seaweeds cooks a big investment.

Similar to Marley, the ladies at Kelpful laud the health benefits of consuming seaweed. They believe that it’s the next superfood and that farming it in the ocean could help save the planet because of its ability to absorb nitrogen, ammonia, and mitigate ocean acidification. “I’m on the bandwagon that this is the future of our food system,” Marsh tells the crowd gathered around that kitchen island in Oak Commons. As people fan out to their stations, the ladies start to move around and direct the budding chefs. “There’s supposed to be five carrots. Does this look like five carrots?” one of the helpers at the sea greens saladmaking station asks.

FEATHER BOA Spencer Marley examines what he believes is a type of feather boa, which belongs in the brown algae family. He said, historically, the boa has been used as a good source of fertilizer.

The air starts to smell earthy, salty, and a little bit briny. After dinner, Kelpful’s founders give a brief presentation on their vision, one that Hanson recounted to New Times during a phone interview. Although Kelpful wild harvested for the dinner, the long-term goal is to grow seaweed in the ocean. “We’re highly motivated to feed our community healthy, low-cost food, and we believe that algae is a way to do that. We believe that a lot of the future of our food system lies in the ocean, specifically with seaweed,” Hanson says. “We are participating in the creation of the next economy, an economy that isn’t exploitative and extractive and doesn’t focus on the economics of growth alone.” But, like all the others leaning into the potential of the seaweed farming industry, Kelpful is still at the very beginning of its quest. The ladies have yet to zero in on a potential leasing site, the first step of many. But they are motivated and moving forward, Drube says. “We’re not trying to bully the system, we’re not trying to override the precautions,” Drube says. “And we don’t want to potentially let bad actors in in the process. We just want to kind of keep the ball rolling.” ∆ Reach Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

for Children International, a global humanitarian nonprofit organization that helps children and their families escape poverty. She brought her advocacy to Estero Bay on June 27 and swam 11 miles in about eight hours to raise awareness and funds for the nonprofit. More said her interest in the nonprofit stemmed from her parents’ involvement with the organization when she was an infant. Her parents wanted to give back in some way and help kids in India because that’s where they’re from, she said. More’s family sponsored eight children through Children International, and she knew she wanted to do more. At 10 years old, she became the youngest person to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa. “I was getting some attention, and I thought ... instead of focusing on me, I could use that media and move it toward something that’s more meaningful,” she said. More decided to mark her successes in the name of Children International. Since then, she’s been setting records for hiking and swimming and has raised more than $58,000 for Children International along the way. More’s swimming achievements include the Santa Barbara Channel (12 miles), the Catalina Channel (20 miles), and the length of Lake Tahoe (21.3 miles). Last year, More organized the Escape from Alcatraz to Escape from Poverty swim around Alcatraz that raised more then $8,000 for the nonprofit. In order to keep the momentum going, she organized another fundraising campaign called Angel’s Hope that focuses on raising funds for an educational scholarship. Her goal is to raise $1 million over the course of two years and three swims. The swim to kick things off was in Estero Bay. It was planned to be a 14-mile marathon but she only completed 11 miles due to an unforeseen dip in the water temperatures and strong winds.

More took a trip to Guatemala, one of the many countries where Children International is stationed, and met some of the kids. Before that, she said, when she thought of kids in need, it reminded her of the posters she’d seen at bus stops—the image of a sad looking child next to text asking for a donation. “I think I was never really able to connect with them because those kids were always looking for their next meal and not really able to live a life,” More said. That sentiment quickly faded as More realized they were kids who enjoyed sports and school just like she did. “I think children have the ability, especially when we grow up, to change the world. But we could be held back by certain circumstances, so we can’t. I hope to give kids around the world the ability to both achieve their dreams and change the world,” More said.

Focus and funding need redirection throughout the region for community wildfire protection

T

he cover story of the July 25 edition of New Times (“Prevention and protection”) tackled one of the most pressing issues we face on the Central Coast: how to best protect communities from wildfire. While the story covered some important aspects of this issue, there are also several key measures fire scientists have identified as the best ways to protect homes and people. These same scientists are also coming to new understandings about our local ecosystems, which can help improve how communities adapt to fire in the region. The areas where wildfires typically burn in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties are generally covered with unique shrubland ecosystems called chaparral and coastal sage scrub. These shrublands are similar to those found in only four other places on the planet. While they are astoundingly diverse and complex, they are commonly misunderstood. The natural fire cycle for our native shrublands is characterized by large and intense fires every 30 to 150 years. It is entirely normal for these fires to burn most or all of the aboveground vegetation, which will naturally regenerate from seed or by resprouting from underground plant structures. If these areas burn too frequently, native species can’t keep up and are replaced by flammable non-native grasses and weeds that dry out earlier in the year and ignite more easily. These same invasive plants also tend to dominate

where vegetation is cleared by heavy equipment, presumably to reduce fire risk. Chaparral fire ecology is quite different than that of conifer forests where trees are the dominant vegetation, though both ecosystems are subject to misconceptions about what is normal or abnormal when it comes to fire. Forestry officials often claim that all of these forests are too dense due to past fire suppression. This assertion is not only disputed by many forest ecologists, but it’s often used as justification for hastily approving commercial logging projects and other intensive vegetation removal activities.

after fire have shown us that large habitat clearance projects far away from communities aren’t just ecologically damaging, they’re ineffective when it matters most: during extreme weather conditions. These are the conditions under which the vast majority of wildfires that cause damage to communities occur. We need only to look at the 2017 Thomas Fire or 2018 Camp Fire to see where fast, wind-driven fires moved through areas that were logged, cleared, or burned just years before without slowing down. In fact, those cleared areas actually allowed the fires to accelerate. If these methods haven’t been working, then why are lawmakers and agencies doubling down on them? Hundreds of millions of dollars will be thrown at lofty vegetation clearance projects over the next few years in California, while no funds are being directed to the mitigation measures fire science consistently shows to be the most effective. For example, there are currently no funds being invested in programs that help homeowners in atrisk areas retrofit their structures with fire-safe materials. While this isn’t a foolproof method, it can help improve the odds of a home surviving a wildfire according to fire scientists, including those at the Forest Service’s own Fire Sciences Lab. None of this is to say that vegetation management doesn’t have its place. The science is clear that pruning vegetation and removing flammable materials immediately around homes is an important (though again, not foolproof) part of community protection. However, a recent report by The San Diego Union-Tribune also found that

... no funds are being directed to the mitigation measures fire science consistently shows to be the most effective. For example, Los Padres National Forest officials recently approved two massive commercial logging projects near Mt. Pinos without preparing an environmental assessment or soliciting much public input. Both projects will allow a private timber company to remove trees of any size, including old-growth conifers used by endangered California condors—the same trees that fire scientists say should be left in place to reduce fire risk. No matter what ecosystem we’re considering, study after study and fire

Cal Fire hasn’t been enforcing defensible space requirements around homes in many counties, including San Luis Obispo. Strangely enough, this is in part due to a lack of funding to Cal Fire—one of the most well-funded agencies in the state—for these critical inspections. More importantly for the future, local governments must find ways to reduce the number of new homes built in high fire risk areas. Just in the last 25 years, more than 5,000 homes have been built in statedesignated high or very high fire hazard severity zones in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties combined—and there’s no sign that this will stop anytime soon. Finally, for existing developments and communities, we must ensure that people receive adequate warnings and know what to do in the event of a wildfire. This may require improving alert systems or even installation of outdoor sirens as a backup. And if evacuation isn’t possible, communities should look at alternatives, such a creating large, fire-safe areas or “fire parks” where trapped people can find safe refuge as a few fortunate ones did in Paradise during the 2018 Camp Fire. The information for what needs to be done to truly protect people from inevitable wildfires is available. Policymakers just need to pay attention and find ways to divert some of the massive amount of money being poured into ineffective methods of the past into smart mitigation measures known today. ∆ Bryant Baker is the conservation director for Los Padres ForestWatch; Richard Halsey is the director of the California Chaparral Institute; and Chad Hanson is the forest and fire ecologist for the John Muir Project.

Opinion Balance?

Come on New Times. Al Fonzi is bad enough. Now we have another put-upon conservative who’s going to tell us we really don’t need clean water to drink, air that isn’t polluted, food that doesn’t make us sick, and safe work places. Al Fonzi never seemed to get any traction with his antiquated, conspiracy-theory, profitsover-people arguments. Why bring on another regressive like John Donegan? New Times should expand its in-depth investigative reporting on local issues like water, energy, conservation, and social justice. It is information like this that educates citizens and moves society forward. Steve Ryburn Atascadero

My mind is open

I’m all ears. Please, John Donegan (“Open your mind,” Aug. 1), explain to me why I should even remotely consider supporting current Republican ideas or voting for a Republican candidate. I have listened. I have watched. What I have heard and seen are “mere ideas” that have put forth policies, practices, and actions/inactions that have profoundly affected our nation in the most terrible ways. Republicans have elected and supported a person for president who has been accused of sexual assault and rape (including of a 13-year-old girl when partying with his buddy Jeffery Epstein), is a pathological liar, has and continues to practice corruption for monetary gain while in office, and has obviously committed multiple felonies. He is a racist and promotes racism in others and the inhumane treatment of immigrants. What irony in your last lines: “I have to run. There is another torchlight march coming up my street. Hearing your name chanted angrily is always a bit disturbing.” Just imagine how disturbing it would be if this really happened to you. Trump attacks the free press, idolizes murderous dictators, and surrounds himself with yes-men who want to disable our democratic processes and our government agencies. The Republican party promotes war, continually attempts to suppress voter participation, encourages the intrusion of religion into politics, gives huge tax breaks to the very wealthy, and wants to deny access to affordable health care and education for all citizens under the cry of socialism. They have repeatedly blocked legislation on gun control, and they ignore the existence of and dangers of climate change. Having an open mind does not mean believing any of this is justified or acceptable. But hey, write away. I may read what you write (if you have something valuable to say), but sorry, I just can’t bring myself to watch Fox news. No propaganda for me. I want to keep my mind open, but protected, because I value not only it, but also my heart and soul. Kathy Riedmann Los Osos

Elected officials should have done basic research

Assembly Bill 117 from 2002 or type “Community Choice 101” into a search engine. He chose instead to write a letter flaunting self-enforced ignorance, wild surmise, and ad hominem attack. But that’s not the problem. The problem, as my July 25 opinion piece (“They’d rather not discuss it”) made clear, is that the Atascadero City Council and San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors had all the information they needed. A representative of one of California’s successful community choice energy programs testified before them, and they could have asked him or their staff all the questions they wanted in order to determine why this is rapidly becoming the preferred method of energy generation in California. But they, too, professed ignorance and ended the discussion. While counties and cities across the state are switching to community choice programs for the environmental and economic advantages they bring, these two local governments are now the lone holdouts on the Central Coast. As such, they are doing a significant disservice to residents. Again, not a problem if Mr. Henry prefers to skip basic research and do something else with his time. When elected officials choose that course of action—and also refuse to agendize a discussion, deliberations, and a vote on whether to join the regional community choice program, thereby foreclosing the possibility of an informed decision—their constituents have a problem. Andrew Christie director Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club

Community choice does seem like a scam Thank you Mark Henry for bringing to light the community choice energy scam (“Community choice seems like a scam,” Aug. 1). You are so right. Unless those who bought into community choice have new distribution lines coming from new transmission lines recently installed, then the power they are receiving is not totally emission free. The power is coming from the grid, which includes a high percentage of energy from fossil fuels, maybe some from bio-mass and, yes, even nuclear, which is emission free. The big question is what will happen if Diablo Canyon Power Plant shuts down and removes a large amount of emissionfree power? Ellen Ripley Arroyo Grande

We stand together

I am shocked by the recent events in Dayton and El Paso! But: I am not going to stay home and hide. I am not going to be afraid; I am going to be aware of my surroundings. I will help in any way that I can those who are affected by tragedy and teach my children and grandchildren to do the same. I will not waste my time or anyone else’s going on and on about gun control and what the killer’s motive was, etc. These can all be discussed later. Right now the carnage needs to stop. It won’t work to spend money needed for education on security guards. They can’t be in every classroom or area on a campus. There is no purpose in depleting city and state budgets by putting snipers on rooftops and excessive amounts of police at every single event. The money is much better spent following up on leads given to authorities. See something, say something is very serious. Each one of these mass murderers had multiple indicators that they had serious problems. We are the first line of defense. We are the best source of information to the authorities when we have real suspicions. America has been through wars, depressions, weather disasters, just to name a few. Guess what, pathetic cowards? You won’t break our spirit and make us live in fear! We are Americans, and we stand together, through it all. Helen Jacobsen Arroyo Grande

Community choice is the real deal

A recent letter wondered if community choice energy was a scam to ease liberal guilt by getting them to pay more for green energy (“Community choice seems like a scam,” Aug. 1). Community choice energy is the real deal. Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) will be providing energy to the cities of San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay next year and four more SLO county cities and Santa Barbara County the following year. Last year, current customers of MBCP shared $4.4 million in rebates. Their customers are projected to receive more than $10 million in rebates this year—money staying in their local economy instead of going into PG&E’s coffers. The energy supplied is 100 percent carbon free, and MBCP provides a 5 percent rebate on the energy supplied. You can be green while saving money. All of the major electric grids have systems in place to track the source of generation being fed into and removed from the grid by all energy suppliers. This is how you know the energy supplied by PG&E is 80 percent carbon free (including 27 percent nuclear) and MBCP is 100 percent. If the entire county joined MBCP, the additional 20 percent represents about 250,000 mega-watt hours of carbon-free energy, plus more than $5 million will stay in the local community instead of going to PG&E. Unfortunately only cities are set to join, the county has not even put joining MBCP on its agenda. Contact your county supervisor and let them know that you want all the businesses and residents in the county to enjoy the very real benefits of community choice energy.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AMY HEWES

Sweat equity L ast month, I hiked out of the Sierra after a week-long backpack with five middle-aged moms and our daughters. We were dirty, sick of trail mix, and exhilarated. On our return to civilization, we learned that the tremors we felt at 11,000 feet came from a massive earthquake—and that the U.S. women’s soccer team had won their fourth World Cup title. That 2-0 win was no less an earthquake than the 7.1 magnitude tumbler. In fact, the after-effects could well be transformative, just like the passage of Title IX decades ago, which arguably made it possible for women to play competitive sports in front of a worldwide audience. Passed in 1972 and enacted in 1978, Title IX changed everything for women. The law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any education program or activity that receives federal funds. It requires athletic programs to provide women with equal opportunity for athletic scholarships, access to equipment, publicity, facilities, tutoring opportunities, and more. I have personally witnessed the enormous changes that came with Title IX. In 1970, my senior high school yearbook devoted 30 pages to boys’ sports. There was one single, blurry, 2-by-6-inch photo of 16 brave girls, who belonged to a club called Girls Sports. Leap ahead to my daughter’s 2008 SLO

High yearbook with 44 pages of athletic teams. Eighteen of those pages feature girls’ sports, while four pages represent mixed squads. Equity, at least visually. From its inception, however, Title IX has been under attack by misguided critics of women’s sports. More than 30 years ago, the courts stopped the Reagan administration from gutting the law. Surely you’ve heard college sports fans complain about women getting in the way of their sacred cow—football. Despite the harping, Title IX remains a vanguard idea. What did sports equality in schools mean for girls? A national shift in consciousness for at least half the population. Take Faith Mimnaugh, head coach for Cal Poly women’s basketball—a program started in 1974 because of Title IX. She attended junior high before implementation of the law, but itching to play, she joined the boys’ team. She went on to a high school where Title IX advances were already felt. “Our girls’ team had only played a couple seasons, but we won the state championship—and drew many more fans than the boys,” Mimnaugh told me. “In 1981, I won the first full athletic scholarship given to a woman at Loyola University, thanks to Title IX. “Happily, I had conviction in my abilities to play and later coach, but only a

handful of role models to guide me.” A couple of generations later, Sarah (Grieve) Miller, 6-foot-2 center for Cal Poly from 2002-06, was empowered by many more role models than Coach Mimnaugh had. All-star LA Sparks center Lisa Leslie won four Olympic gold medals. For 15 years, Diana Taurasi starred at guard for the Phoenix Mercury. Pat Summit, head coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers (19742012), racked up 1,098 career wins, the most in college history, male or female. Miller, now a professor at Cuesta College, also had her mother as a model. “Mom played on UCSB’s first women’s varsity squad, in 1976,” Miller told me proudly. “She was a scholarship athlete. And she’s still in the record books for most rebounds. “Like Mom’s, my four-year scholarship gave me the opportunity to play college ball. Title IX opened the doors to success.” Both Miller and Mimnaugh emphasized how one law changed the way girls perceive themselves. In my day, female athletes were definitely considered weird. Mimnaugh recounted how the newspaper, of course, described her teammates as “Amazons.” “I’m 5-foot-2,” she laughed. A foot taller, Miller felt stigmatized for both her height and athleticism. “When are we going to see athletes as simply athletes?” she asked. Well, maybe the awesome Megan Rapinoe and fellow members of national women’s soccer team will jumpstart a new era in which women are equally viewed

and valued as athletes. Certainly, they further embolden girls to be self-confident, to be unconstrained by gender stereotypes, and to demand equal pay for equal work. Wouldn’t that be transformative? But deep-seated bias continues to assert its power. In March, national women’s team members were forced to sue the U.S. Soccer Federation for discrimination in pay, practice time, practice locations, medical treatment, coaching, and travel. After their World Cup win, the women stand to earn roughly 75 percent less than the men, should the men ever play and win a World Cup final. And yet the women’s national team is bringing in more revenue and fans to the game. Obviously it’s not all about money, and Title IX made huge strides. I can see its effects in my daughter and her friends. Given such dynamic role models and enforced opportunity, they have already accomplished goals in all aspects of their lives that I could not have imagined. They are fearless: One has her pilot’s license, and another hiked the Alaskan wilderness. Another worked as a women’s health provider on the Mexican border, while my daughter, now a social worker, did a stint in Rwanda studying genocide. They are stunning, just like the women’s soccer team. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action. Send comments through the editor at clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

The Shredder

Newspeak? U p is down, good is bad, right is wrong, real is fake—welcome to George Orwell’s 1984, when “truth” is subjective. Was SLO Police Chief Deanna Cantrell truly “transparent” about the loss of her loaded Glock 42 pistol, which she left in an El Pollo Loco restroom on July 10, and which she claimed to have immediately reported lost? Or was she instead scrambling frantically behind the scenes to locate the weapon before having to disclose what can best be described as a boneheaded mistake that endangered public safety, and for which she ultimately received a slap on the wrist? And what about the poor sap Cheyne Eric Orndoff, 33, of O’Conner Way in SLO, whose own Orwellian nightmare started when his home was raided by the SLOPD due to a bad tip from Morro Bay PD that claimed he resembled the man on video footage entering the El Pollo Loco restroom after Cantrell exited? Police arrived at his home on July 10 in search of Cantrell’s weapon and I guess assumed Orndoff’s facial hair must grow at lightning speed since Orndoff had a full mustache and beard mere hours after the video was recorded of the clean-shaven man in El Pollo Loco, who turned out to be Skeeter Carlos Mangan of Los Osos. Hey Johnny Law, did you tug on Orndoff’s beard to check if it was fake?

Orndoff’s nightmare was compounded by his erroneous inclusion on a database of probationers. Turns out his brother used Orndoff’s name as an alias when he was arrested for drugs in 2017. Orndoff has apparently tried repeatedly to have the error corrected since it was affecting his ability to get employment, but to no avail. Gee, thanks, bro? I guess Thanksgiving is off this year, eh? Even though Orndoff clearly wasn’t the man on videotape, and even though he reportedly offered to provide court documents proving he wasn’t on probation (his brother was), the police still searched his home without a warrant because of the database mistake and based on what they claimed were dangerous conditions viewed through the home’s open front door. They took Orndoff’s two daughters, 7 and 9 years old, into Child Protective Services, and he and his wife, Vanessa Marie Bedroni, 31, were arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment. Police also took the family dog, Princess, 5, to the pound. Don’t tell John Wick! God knows what would happen. In a hearing on Aug. 6, prosecutors claimed that police discovered needles

and meth in the couple’s bedroom. Wow, police could see that through the open front door? Why did they really go in? Even though he didn’t look like the suspect in the video, did they really believe he had Cantrell’s gun? Were they just being dicks all pumped up to search the wrong man’s home? Was this a way to cover their mistake? Were they making child endangerment lemonade out of wrong-suspect lemons? Orndoff has since said the needles are for prescribed medication, and he and his wife have pleaded not guilty to all charges. The police say, “Nope, nope, nope! It’s meth alright! We saved these kids! We’re heroes!” CalCoastNews, the local blog site that lost a 2017 libel suit and was ordered to pay $1.1 million in damages, has reported all sorts of discrepancies in both Cantrell’s claimed timeline as well as the official account of events surrounding the lost gun. They point out that the police log was changed, to which the city responded that changing the log is acceptable because it’s a “living document.” Doublethink if I ever heard it! Look, I don’t trust CalCoastNews farther than I can throw Donald Trump, but something smells rotten in the town of SLO. Cantrell spoke to The Tribune, and SLO City Attorney Christine Dietrick spoke to The Trib and New Times to refute CalCoastNews’ claims. Frankly, I don’t know who to believe. Everyone seems to be covering their own behinds. I’ve heard too many stories of Child

Protective Services overstepping their bounds, of police cover-ups, and of distortions of the truth and misinformation coming from “official” sources to not be highly skeptical of everything to do with this case. All I know for sure is that two scared girls, ages 7 and 9, are without their parents, whose home was searched without a legal warrant. If Orndoff’s name had been taken off the database a year ago as he requested, the police would have had no reasonable excuse to search the home without a warrant. Orndoff and Bedroni have to wait until an Aug. 15 hearing to see if they’ll be reunited in time for one of their girls’ upcoming birthdays. As for one of the officers in charge of searching Orndoff’s home, Detective Jason Dickel—who Orndoff claims wasn’t interested in looking at the documents proving he was wrongly in the database, hence not on probation, hence not subject to search—he was promoted to sergeant two weeks later by Cantrell. Job well done, J-Dick! Oops! I mean, Sgt. J-Dick. This whole thing stinks. As Orwell wrote, “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.” Thanks to everyone involved in this story and their various versions of the “truth,” the public must be feeling very strong indeed! ∆ The Shredder can’t be trusted … or can she?

Blues legends!

ICON Chicagostyle blues guitar legend Buddy Guy plays the Avila Beach Golf Resort on Aug. 9.

Buddy Guy plays Avila Beach with Jimmie Vaughan and Charlie Musselwhite

I

remember the first time I saw Buddy Guy live. He was playing D.K.’s West Indies Bar around 1989 or 1990, and midway through his show, he jumped up on the bar with his guitar and made his way through the glasses and bar napkins as he played down the length of it. Later, he walked through the dance floor and out the front door, into the middle of Broad Street, where he turned around and played facing back at the nightclub as the doormen tried to keep patrons from following him out into the street with their drinks. It was an electrifying show! That was around 30 years ago, and since the famed blues guitarist is now 83, I wouldn’t expect such theatrics. But he’s still considered one of the best Chicago blues guitarists alive, one who influenced the likes of Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck, Gary Clark Jr., and Eric Clapton, who once called Guy “the best guitar player alive.” Rolling Stone ranked Guy 23rd on its list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” This Friday, Aug. 9, Avila Beach Resort presents blues legends Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, and Charlie Musselwhite at the Avila Beach Golf Resort (gates at 4 p.m., show from 6 to 10 p.m.; all ages; $40 general and $95 for VIP Beach Club Balcony at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com; children under 7 are free).

Guy’s most recent album, The Blues Is Alive And Well (2018), is the eight-time Grammy Award winner’s 18th studio album, though he’s also recorded 10 albums with Junior Wells, five with Phil Guy, and one with Memphis Slim. “I got children and grandchildren who didn’t know who I was, but nowadays we can play outdoor concerts and see kids that are 8, 9, 12 years old coming to me and saying, ‘I didn’t know who you was, but I read what Eric Clapton said about you,’” Guy said in press materials. “I’m always trying to make an album that someone accidentally plays where some kid hears it, picks up a guitar, and helps keep the blues alive.” Kids under 7 get in free! Introduce them to the blues! Also this week at the Avila Beach Golf Resort, Goldenvoice and Otter Productions Inc. present 311 and Dirty Heads on Wednesday, Aug. 14 (gates at 4:30 p.m.; all ages; $48 to $345 at eventbrite.com), with The Interrupters, Dreamers, and Bikini Kill opening. 311 mixes rock, rap, reggae, and funk into their signature sound that’s resulted in 10 studio albums, one live album, one greatest hits collection, and three DVDs. Dirty Heads also melds genres, delivering alt-hip-hop, ska, rock, and

Just for the record, this group was formed in 2008 by former Bob Marley guitarists Al Anderson and Junior Marvin (who left the band in 2011). The pair began touring with Marley in 1975 after he went solo and Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh left the band. Technically speaking, Anderson wasn’t an “original Wailer,” but he toured with Marley from 1975 through 1980 and played on some of Marley’s bestknown recordings. You’re still seeing an important piece of reggae history!

materials, they push “emotional boundaries with musical tones resonating with your best and worst day. Heartfelt vocals and wise lyrics will put you in a dream state.

Frog and Peach turns 25! I remember when Frog & Peach Pub was Swensen’s Ice Cream. It was the go-to place to take a date in high school. On Aug. 11, 1994, Ash Management re-opened Swensen’s old location at 728 Higuera St. as the Frog & Peach Pub, and it sold only beer for its first 12 years in business. It still has beer, and lots of it on tap, from Firestone Luponic Distortion to Lagunitas IPA to Rogue Hazelnut Brown. Twenty taps total, plus a full bar for the last 13 years. It’s also the last sevennights-a-week live music venue standing in downtown SLO. “What a long, strange trip it’s been,” Bill Hales of Ash Management said. “Literally, I can remember Aug. 11, 1994, like it was yesterday. I remember opening night and all the characters who’ve come through there. A lot of old timers are going to be there Sunday, guys who played opening weekend, like Doug Grosshart of the JD Project. I’m looking forward to the next 25 years.” On Sunday, Aug. 11, to celebrate its 25 years in business, Frog & Peach will

Essentially, Emoto’s work is about the idea that if our thoughts can impact water, they can therefore impact us, since we are mostly water after all. “I’ve always been a fan of Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work with water,” Brescia said. “Just the thought of that is unbelievable. How are your thoughts affecting you?” Taking inspiration from Emoto’s work, Brescia’s new art show, The Magic of Water, is currently on display at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles. The work in the exhibit includes pieces made with acrylics, encaustic, mixed media, quartz, and crystal. “He’s a scientist, so for people who think it’s a little woo-woo or out there, they can maybe see it in a different light,” she said. While most of Brescia’s 50-plus pieces in the show are abstract, at least one piece featuring a mermaid (Remembering Atlantis), is representational. It’s also a wink to the lost city of Atlantis and the idea that other intelligent civilizations exist and possess healing knowledge that exceeds our own. “I find that kind of stuff incredibly thoughtprovoking,” Brescia said. “This was a way to

The encaustic piece, Maybe It Means Just A Little Bit More, was given its name from a line in Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, as some viewers swear they can make out the Christmas hater’s form in the abstract piece. And the encaustic painting Ho’Oponopono Prayer refers to the tradition where people all around the world pray on the water on the 11th day of each month in order to create positivity and love. “I’m hoping that people will actually think about the thoughts they have, that they realize how much power and impact their thoughts have,” Brescia said. “If you can uncover whatever negativity you have running through your head, then clear it. Imagine what you could do.” Δ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley is floating on the water’s surface. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

urning 13 is a big deal in and of itself. But throw in an unresolved murder, a recluse in the woods, and a brutal attack on a young girl, and things are really ramping up for Acacia, the protagonist of Arroyo Grande author Lili Sinclaire’s new coming-of-age novel, The Bridge. Sinclaire’s latest book is a young adult novel set in a rural town on the California Coast. On New Year’s Eve in 1960, Acacia turns 13. Read on Her birthday wish The Bridge, by Arroyo Grande author is to be courageous Lili Sinclaire, is enough to cross the available on Amazon old, dilapidated bridge. for $9.99 for the She and her friend paperback edition and want to find out why $2.99 for the Kindle a light is shining in version. the deserted migrant camp where a girl’s body was found three years before. And after that, the twists and turns keep coming. Sinclaire stopped to talk with New Times about writing, reading with ADHD, and getting a message across. New Times: What’s your elevator pitch for The Bridge? Lili Sinclaire: Basically The Bridge is a fictional story that takes place in a coastal town like ours in the 1960s. It’s very much like To Kill A Mockingbird. Mine deals with prejudice from the 1960s and 1970s as well.

NT: What inspired you to write The Bridge? LS: There are three things that came together over a period of years, and those things became the story. I also took communications classes for 30 years, and I was a parent coach and worked for the women’s shelter. It’s all about that inner journey and coming to resolve things. Communication and relationships are my passion. NT: Who is the target demographic for The Bridge?

GROWING UP Lili Sinclaire’s latest novel, The Bridge, is a coming-of-age story set on the coast of California in the 1960s.

LS: It is a young adult novel, which kind of goes from 15 to early 20s. It’s again sort of the same as To Kill A Mockingbird, which is very much a coming-of-age story. Everyone who read it so far doesn’t see it as something just a young teen girl would read, even though it’s from a young girl’s perspective. NT: What was the writing process like for this novel? LS: It took me eight years to write. I showed it to several writers groups— writers groups are invaluable. It’s touching people’s lives so I don’t care that I spent eight years on it. It was a really fulfilling thing to do. NT: What do you hope people take away from reading The Bridge? LS: There’s a lot of intolerance going on in the world today. I’m trying to show in this story that until we’ve lived in someone’s skin we don’t know what their life is like. I’m hoping we’ll have a bit more empathy and compassion. That’s really important.

After Mufasa is murdered during the infamous stampede coup d’état (“long live the king”), Scar convinces Simba it’s his fault and advises him to run away. The lion prince then travels to the desert, only to bump into the lovable Timon (voiced by Billy Eichner) and Pumbaa (voiced by Seth Rogan), who teach young Simba to embrace a certain carefree philosophy the whole theater is guaranteed to sing along to. I can’t quite put my finger on what got lost in translation, but somehow this highly anticipated remake—almost a shot-for-shot remake I might add—just didn’t do it for me. It’s both a faithful adaptation of the original and a visually

astounding spectacle in its own right—so what else could I have possibly asked for? Maybe my hopes were just too high. I went in ready to love it but left the theater feeling meh. Most of the original’s charm just didn’t carry over for me. Don’t get me wrong, though; it’s far from terrible. Like a loving sitcom parent, I’m not angry with The Lion King, I’m just disappointed. Remember the moment right before Mufasa has a stern talk with young Simba (after he and Nala are rescued from the hyenas)? Simba walks over to Mufasa but pauses when one of his front paws sinks into his father’s footprint. In that instance, the lion prince realizes he’s got some pretty big shoes to fill someday. For me, the original Lion King is that footprint. But unlike Simba, who grows big enough to fill that print halfway through the film, this remake is

Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10, Sunset Drive-In Jon Favreau (Elf, Iron Man, Cowboys & Aliens, Chef, The Jungle Book (2016)) helms this photorealistic-animated remake of Disney’s 1994 animated classic of the same name about lion prince Simba (voiced by JD McCrary as a cub and Donald Glover as an adult), who’s driven from his kingdom as a cub after his king father, Mufasa (voiced by James Earl Jones), is murdered by his jealous brother, Scar (voiced by Chiwetel Ejiofor). The film opens strong with baby Simba’s majestic unveiling to the animal kingdom, set to “Circle of Life” of course, followed by an intricately designed sequence of a mouse scurrying through its surroundings, before being plucked by Scar. “Life’s not fair, is it, my little friend?” asks everyone’s favorite fratricidal feline. Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, Children of Men) was an inspired choice for Scar, whose original iteration is one of the greatest antagonists in Disney’s pantheon. The weight and brutality he brings to the role make it all the more disappointing that the villain’s murderous anthem, “Be Prepared,” gets butchered down to a mere 20 seconds of talk-singing (one of the few instances the film

ike most people, I love to eat. But like many people, I’m broke and often forced to throw together whatever meal I possibly can with the scraps left in my fridge.

what I do three times a day. If you somehow haven’t seen an episode of Food Network’s long-running competitive cooking show, allow me to explain: Four chefs attempt to make a three-course meal—an appetizer, a main course, and dessert—with only 20 to 30 minutes per round. In each round, competitors have to use the “basket ingredients” provided, which are a mystery until just before each round begins. Three judges eliminate a chef each course, and the last chef standing takes home $10,000. The cooking is what I actually love about Chopped, along with, of course, the cruelty. These chefs start off so excited, with big dreams for what they’d do with thousands of dollars, and then they get slapped with mandatory basket ingredients that no one, no matter how Frenchly trained, knows how to use—dried and fermented scallops, years-old eggs preserved in clay, pig lips. Or they face baskets with mainstream ingredients that simply don’t go together, like one notorious appetizer basket of durian, green Jell-O, Cheetos, and imitation crab. There’s always this wave of panic that washes over the chefs’ faces when they first see the ingredients, and yet 30 minutes later they each have beautiful and wildly creative dishes to serve the judges. But Chopped is also a reality show, which makes it fraught with things I love to hate. Each episode starts out with a few minutes dedicated to “meeting” the competitors, a segment that is home to some of the tackiest moments in television history. This is where

This is where every chef says his or her name and talks about how they love making pasta because their Italian grandmothers made pasta and it just “feels like home.” It’s where every chef says they want to win $10,000, so they can open their first restaurant and throw in the lowly sous chef towel, and prove to their parents that cooking is the right career path. Inexplicably, this portion of the show is where competitors also do a lot of bragging, flexing, finger-gun pointing, and punchline saying. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the Chopped kitchen!” Never heard that one before! But it’s not just the intro that I love hate. Chopped unabashedly uses those sound effects that are supposed to make you feel like a moment is really intense. The reality TV version of “DUN DUN DUUUUUNNN.” But in this case, those sounds are paired with people dropping lettuce on the ground, or running to the ice cream machine only to find it’s already being used. It’s almost as if no one who competes on Chopped actually watches it, because these people are making the same mistakes, over and over again. Basically, the show itself is kind of like the food cooked on it—a beautiful mess. Δ —Kasey Bubnash

TAKE CHARGE In 1970s New York, three gangsters’ wives—(left to right) Claire (Elizabeth Moss), Ruby (Tiffany Haddish), and Kathy (Melissa McCarthy)—decide to continue running their Hell’s Kitchen rackets after the men are imprisoned, in The Kitchen. MOVIES from page 41 challenge in the water and objection of being told “girls” can’t win, let alone make it through the first stretch of the race, the audience is with the women in their triumph. Edwards wasn’t the happiest teenager after her father died suddenly from a heart attack, and her mother remarried an abusive man. The negativity and abuse was enough to make Edwards leave and seek out another life, which led her to become the cook on a charter boat. We don’t spend too much time on the past as she races toward making history. The cooking gig eventually leads Edwards to learn about the Whitbread Round the World Race, now known as the Ocean Race, a literal race around the world on a yacht over the course of several months. Edwards believes it’s her calling to be a part of the race, a burning feeling she’s never had before. The only thing stopping her is that she’s a female or—as many of the skippers and crewmembers call her—a girl. She’s a distraction and definitely not strong enough to tackle the dangerous seas. (If I could roll my eyes to the back of my head I would.) Edwards doesn’t take no for an answer, which seems to be a successful mantra for her throughout her endeavor of handpicking her all-female crew and entering the race with no prior experience as a skipper. But the team meets plenty of other barriers along the way: not having enough money for a boat, not having any sponsors, being female in a male-dominated sport, and learning how to hone in on everyone’s strengths. Nothing stops the women from entering the race in 1989. The documentary is riddled with old news footage, photos, and home videos of the excursion. It also has interviews with the crew, and it’s compelling to hear their take on what it was like to work together and defy all the odds that were thrown at them. While this is about the females that made the Maiden (their boat) famous and their successes and losses in the water, it also highlighted the blatant misogyny they faced daily. It was maddening but not surprising that the men on other teams doubted the Maiden crew, with the journalists even taking digs at them. It’s funny how the newscasters forgot how to do their job and basically asked the Maiden women different and dumbed-down questions. Overall, it was amazing to ride the waves with these kick-ass women as they challenged the status quo. (97 min.) —Karen Garcia

When Bonnie’s family goes on a road trip, Forky takes off, so Woody and a few other toys go in search of him. When I first heard Toy Story 4 was in the works, I felt betrayed and bewildered. Toy Story 3 had such a finality to it, why try to follow a nearly perfect ending to the series? So why keep going? Well, money of course! Little did I know Pixar’s more noble intentions for this installment, which surprisingly opens the door to countless more adventures—for some characters more than others. The final product isn’t the petty cashgrab I was expecting, and believe it or not, I actually enjoyed it even more than Toy Story 3. Fight me!

ONCE UPON A TIME … IN HOLLYWOOD

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? Bay, Downtown Centre, Fair Oaks, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Writer-director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight) helms this story set in 1969 Hollywood about fading TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) as they struggle to remain relevant in the changing entertainment industry. Tarantino’s ninth film features an ensemble cast and multiple storylines. Tarantino takes us on an entertaining albeit meandering ride through 1969 Hollywood, where he’s mixed real life characters like Charlie Manson (Damon Herriman) and his “family,” rising starlet Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and her director husband Roman Polanski (Rafal Zawierucher), martial arts star Bruce Lee (Mike Moh), and actor Steve McQueen (Damian Lewis), with fictional ones like our protagonists Rick and Cliff. Some of the facts of the film are true, for instance that the Manson family lived on George Spahn’s (Bruce Dern) Spahn Movie Ranch, but like Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino’s got some historical revisions in mind. Knowing the real history behind the Manson murders sets up viewers for the twists and turns to come, and even at two hours and 41 minutes, the film doesn’t feel

slow; however, it also doesn’t seem like it’s in much of a rush to reach its conclusion. Instead, this is a film to be savored for its attention to detail and remarkable performances. The film’s mise-en-scène is incredible. Tarantino had vintage Hollywood marquees and landmarks restored to their 1969 glory or made use of landmarks that have changed little, such as Musso & Frank Grill and the Playboy Mansion and its famed grotto. The costumes are also amazing—from the Manson family’s hippy garb to Rick’s swank mock turtlenecks to unctuous Hollywood mover and shaker Marvin Schwarzs’ (Al Pacino) doublebreasted power suit. Some enterprising entrepreneur should start silk screening Champion Spark Plug T-shirts like the one Cliff’s wearing. They’ll make a mint! And the cars! Holy moly! You’ll feel transported to the era. As for the acting, Pitt’s fantastic here, taking on a speech pattern that’s as memorable as the one he used as Lt. Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds. Cliff is the character most comfortable in his own skin. The laconic stuntman is perfectly happy being Rick’s gopher, and he’s the biggest badass in Hollywood though he keeps it low key. DiCaprio has a more complex job to do playing an actor who we see acting. That’s some meta-level work. Rick’s confidence is waning, and his interactions with Schwarzs and a child actor (not “actress,” which she finds demeaning) named Trudi (a truly remarkable Julia Butters) are highlights of a highlights-filled film. Trudi’s character also offers Tarantino a chance to comment on Method Acting. She’s so much more together and mature than Rick, and that’s hilarious. Tarantino lets his actors shine bright. There’s so much more I could discuss here, like Tarantino’s obvious foot fetish,

Choosing to examine the societal disruption caused by the rise of the counterculture manifested in the extreme as Manson’s family, using Spaghetti Westerns and B-movies as a backdrop, exploring masculinity and misogyny through Rick and Cliff’s friendship—it’s all very ambitious, and the film bears repeated viewings.

Maybe I’m suffering from comic book movie overload, but this new Spider-Man installment just didn’t “wow” me the way it seems to for most reviewers and audiences. Rotten Tomatoes rates it a 91 percent with critics and 96 percent with audiences. It’s entertaining enough, but I don’t see what all the hype is about. It’s just another bigbudget comic book adventure. Basically, the film is flawed. Its big switcheroo is too obviously projected, Peter is too gullible (where are your “spidey senses,” dude?), and the entire affair lacks the coherence of its predecessor. If you’ve got a couple of hours to waste and need a distraction, hit a matinee. These comic book spectacles are best seen in the theater. Hopefully you’ll like it more than I did. (129 min.) —Glen

Grass-fed is always greener PHOTO COURTESY OF WILL WOOLLEY

Templeton Hills Beef takes pride in its cattle while caring for Central Coast pastures

T

he cattle of Templeton Hills Beef ranches take their sweet time eating the long, sun-kissed grasses of the hilly terrain, stopping on occasion for shade and water under some oaks with a few of their herd and some retired horses. All is silent in the warm air—all but the occasional lowing. On a recent summer day, I took a truck ride with Will Woolley and Alton Emery, owners of Templeton Hills Beef, to check their livestock on one of their 300-acre ranches. Sometimes they travel by horseback, but this day we drove up the canyon in Woolley’s truck. We went on a while before spotting a few cows and a big, black mother cow with her calf. She hustled a bit to move off the dirt path as Woolley’s truck passed by. This herd has never eaten a handful of grain in their lifetime, and that’s a good thing. When the partners started their business in 2009, the two friends were aware of the growing market for a healthier alternative to store-bought meat. Woolley and his wife and Emery and his family had already been ranching grass-fed/grass-finished cows, so it wasn’t like they had to reinvent the wheel. They each had sets of mother cows, were raising calves, and selling at auctions. Emery, a Templeton High class of 2000 grad, comes from five generations of Paso Robles ranchers and learned about cattle from his father and grandfather. His wife, Katie, is also involved in

Ranching right

Templeton Hills Beef offers a healthier alternative for people who care about the quality and origin of their food. They raise all-natural, grass-fed, and grassfinished beef from cattle that graze on the grasslands of the Central Coast. You can order 10- to 25-pound frozen and individually vacuum-sealed packages of grass-fed beef samplers, individual cuts, and sides at templetonhillsbeef.com. Call (805) 237-8114 for free delivery in North SLO County. Ask about the Beef Club Spring Special. It’s not on the website, but the thriceyearly 16-pound beef assortment is a great deal at $175.

running the business. When I asked if his two kids (a 2-year-old and a 3-monthold) will one day be involved in 4-H, he laughed. “Oh yeah ... one day.” For Woolley, a fourth-generation cattle rancher, it was his uncle and mother who showed him the ropes. His dad taught him how to hunt and fish. When Woolley and his wife, Darian Buckles, moved to Templeton from Ventura County 20 years ago, they kept a few cows for themselves. After harvesting the meat, Woolley likened the exceptional flavor of the beef to the meat he remembered from his childhood. “That’s where it all started for me,” he said, “from that flavor.” The Templeton Hills Beef partners met when they were both working as elk and mule deer hunting guides on one of the Channel Islands, and they combined their love for ranching in 2009. They’ve been PHOTO BY BETH GIUFFRE supplying meat straight to consumers and a few restaurants ever since. I can vouch for the flavor— Templeton Hills Beef tastes better than any beef I’ve ever had. Here’s why: Their cattle live a life of ease, and Woolley and Emery spend the extra time to ensure they’re also grass-finished—meaning they care for their cows from birth to harvest— rotating the herds on native pastures in and around Templeton. And naturally, the livestock have never been given antibiotics or growth promoting hormones. According to the American Grassfed Association, the result of grass-fed/grass-finished beef versus grain-fed beef is leaner and juicier meat due to a higher moisture content rich in omega-3 fatty acids (four times more omega-3 acids than grain-fed), vitamin B6, and beta-carotene, and lower cholesterol. Grain-fed beef tends to be greasy instead of juicy because MOVIN’ AND GROOVIN’ Will Woolley and the animal has been fattened up on a Alton Emery of Templeton Hills Beef are always variety of grains such as hay or corn looking for new land, making sure their cattle by-products. have fresh grasslands to graze on. Woolley “We try to keep it healthy and explained that the Templeton area has long dry lean, and what our customers are seasons, which make grazing challenging.

LIVING IT UP Grass-fed/grass-finished ranching is challenging to say the least, Templeton Hills Beef co-owner Will Woolley said, where land value is higher for grape growing versus cattle grazing. PHOTO BY BETH GIUFFRE

BUY THE WHOLE COW Templeton Hills Beef offers sampler boxes in all sizes: from a 10-pound grass-fed burger box ($85), to this 10- to 11-pound sampler box for $175 (two rib-eyes, two New York strips, two top sirloin steaks, four flat irons, 5 pounds ground beef), to a 25-pound grass-fed beef box.

looking for,” Emery said. Woolley added that most of their customers are young families looking for a healthy alternative to conventional beef. The guys let me know the term “grassfed” is unregulated as of yet, which is why the distinction of real “grass-finished” beef means more than just another label, and compels me to think you really need to know your rancher. And here we thought we were being so angelic by making sure our beef at the market had that USDA prime, choice, or select beef or even that “grass-fed” sticker on it. All those stickers mean is the rating of tenderness/juiciness/and flavor. When the USDA says the cow was “well-fed,” if it was prime, that could mean well-fed with GMO corn. Additionally, the term “grass-fed” may not necessarily mean the cow was fed a grass diet its whole life. It only means the cow started on a grass-fed diet and could have been fed grains for the remainder of its life. A more accurate sticker would be: “grass-fed, grain-finished beef.”

On a typical day, Woolley and Emery wear many different hats and work extra hard when it comes to their cattle. They are meticulously hands-on. “It’s just the two of us and our wives,” Woolley said. They may be working on moving meat from J&R Natural Meat and Sausage (their butcher) to their own storage freezer, on the phone filling orders, building cross fences for grazing, digging water lines, working the farmers’ market, making deliveries, finding the next lease of grassy pasture for their cows, or checking on their herds. On the day I met them, they were looking to move their herd “to greener pastures.” In order to keep their cattle on a grass diet, they need to rent hundreds of acres of land in North County in a constant rotation. Like vegetables and fruits, they have “harvests,” and like produce, they have their lulls. In spring and again in the fall, they go through FLAVOR continued page 46

Yes, there’s the too-cute-forwords mini-animal farm and the darling Western-times mercantile selling local edibles run by the friendly Barlogio family. Then there’s the u-pick veggies and fruits that add even more charm. But the topper for me is that they sell one of the most refreshing, healthy summer treats in town: house-made granita. This frozen dessert is made from the family’s granita machine with one simple ingredient: fresh fruit from the farm. Zero. Added. Sugar. This is a guilt-free treat we can all manage! The granita flavors vary by season. When the berries are harvested, they serve berry blend granitas, but Becky Barlogio said right now their flavors are apple and apple pomegranate. The granitas are pulled into a clear cup and taste like heaven out on the shady farm patio. If you can’t decide on a flavor, one of the Barlogios will give you a sample, or you can mix both flavors. Check Jack Creek Farms Instagram and Facebook for the current u-pick. Right now it’s blackberries, heirloom tomatoes, and sweet onions. Granitas are $3. Jack Creek Farms is located on 5000 Highway 46 West, Templeton.

CITY OF GROVER BEACH ORDINANCE 19-08 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GROVER BEACH, CALIFORNIA REPEALING CHAPTER 5 (ABATEMENT OF NUISANCES) OF ARTICLE I (GENERAL PROVISIONS) AND ADDING A NEW CHAPTER 5 (ABATEMENT OF PUBLIC NUISANCES) OF ARTICLE I. WHEREAS, the City of Grover Beach (“City”) has the authority to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community, including the ability to protect and enhance the natural environment; and WHEREAS, the City wishes to encourage the maintenance of well-kept properties and recognizes that property values and the general welfare of the community are founded in large part on the appearance, maintenance and safety of properties; and WHEREAS, the existence of property in a condition constituting a nuisance as defined in this Code is injurious to the public health, safety and welfare of the residents of this City and such conditions contribute substantially and increasingly to the necessity for excessive expenditures for protection against hazards, diminution of property values, and the preservation of the public health and safety; WHEREAS, public nuisances are those affecting the entire community, neighborhood or a considerable number of people. Under California law, local governments have standing to intercede and to abate a public nuisance. However, local governments do not have standing to abate a private nuisance. Remedies in the law are available to those affected by private nuisances. However, it is the City policy to assist and to facilitate resolution of private nuisance issues where possible and appropriate. WHEREAS, the existence of public nuisances of the type designated and the abatement of them, is reasonably related to the proper exercise of the police power in protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public, and the exercise of that power by this City is authorized by the constitution of the state and applicable laws. WHEREAS, unless uniform and expedient corrective measures are available to be undertaken to alleviate such conditions, the public health, safety and general welfare and the property values and social and economic standards of this community will be substantially depreciated. The abatement of such conditions will enhance the appearance and value of such properties and will improve the tax base of the City. WHEREAS, it is in the public interest to establish a cost recovery procedure so that the abatement of a public nuisance is at the expense of the person(s) creating, causing, committing or maintaining the nuisance. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED by the City Council of the City of Grover Beach as follows: PART 1: The above recitals and findings are true and correct and incorporated herein by this reference.

(A) Whenever any person creating, causing, committing or maintaining a public nuisance, as referred to in this Chapter or defined as a nuisance elsewhere in this Code, or other public nuisance, as defined under state law or other ordinance or regulation, has been given notice, by or on behalf of the City Attorney, enforcement officer, or by any other City officer, employee or policing agent authorized to give such notice, to abate such nuisance or cease and desist from continuing such nuisance or violation of law, and such person who was given notice fails, refuses or neglects to comply with the notice within the time specified therein, or if such a time is not specified, then within a time reasonably sufficient to enable such compliance, such noncomplying person shall be liable to the City for any and all costs and expenses to the City involved in thereafter abating the nuisance and in obtaining compliance with or enforcing the law as referred to or encompassed in the notice. (B) Costs and expenses, as referred to in subsection A of this section may include, but are not limited to, any and all direct costs and expenses related to such things as personnel salaries and benefits, operational overhead, rent, interest, fees for experts or consultants, research fees, legal costs or expenses, including, but not limited to, procedures associated with collecting moneys due hereunder. (C) In any judicial action, administrative proceeding, or special proceeding or action of any kind to abate a nuisance, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recovery of attorney’s fees. The recovery of attorney’s fees is limited solely to causes of action directly associated with the abatement of a public nuisance. In no action, administrative hearing, or special proceeding shall an award of attorney’s fees to a prevailing party exceed the amount of reasonable attorney’s fees incurred by the City in the action or proceeding. Such attorney’s fees shall be recoverable as costs of abatement. (D) Upon the completion of any abatement pursuant to this Chapter, the City Manager shall cause a statement of the costs thereof to be prepared for submission to the City Council. The City manager shall set a time and place for the City Council to receive and consider the statement of costs, and shall serve upon the responsible person(s) a copy of the statement of costs and a notice of the time and place at which the City Council will receive and consider the statement of costs. Service shall be in the same manner as set forth in Section 1507. (E) The costs of abatement of a nuisance, as confirmed by resolution of the City Council, shall constitute a special assessment against the property to which it relates, and after its recording, as thus made and confirmed, the same shall constitute a lien on the property in the amount of such assessment. After the confirmation of the statement, a copy thereof shall be recorded in the official records of San Luis Obispo County and shall be transmitted to the assessor and tax collector of the County of San Luis Obispo by the City Clerk. Whereupon it shall be the duty of the assessor and tax collector to add the amount of such assessment, or assessments, to the next regular bills of taxes levied against the respective lot or parcel of land, and thereafter the amount shall be collected at the same time and in the same manner as ordinary real property taxes are collected, and shall be subject to the same penalties and the same procedure for foreclosure and sale in the case of delinquency as provided for ordinary real property taxes. (F) At the time and place set for receiving and considering the statement of costs, the City Council shall hear and pass upon the statement together with any objections or protests raised by any of the persons liable to be assessed for the cost of abating the nuisance. Thereupon, the City Council may make any such revision, correction or modification to the statement of costs as it may deem appropriate, after which the statement as submitted, or as revised, corrected or modified, shall be confirmed by resolution. Such hearing may be continued from time to time. The decision of the City Council shall be final. (G) The provisions of this section shall also apply to any responsible person who received a notice, as specified therein, and thereafter the nuisance or violation was abated, but such person subsequently allowed or was responsible for recurrence of the nuisance or violation. (H) In any action or proceeding involving a violation of any provision of this Chapter, the City Attorney, in his or her sole discretion and as part of settlement negotiations, may reduce, eliminate or waive any fines, fees, penalties or interest incurred pursuant to this Chapter. Any determination or decision of the City Attorney in this regard shall be final and conclusive and shall not be subject to appeal. (I) Moneys due to the City pursuant to this section may be recovered in an appropriate civil action. Alternatively, such liability may be enforced by special assessment proceedings against the parcel of land upon which the nuisance existed, which proceedings may be conducted in a manner substantively similar to proceedings described in Sections 39574, et seq. of the California Government Code relating to weed abatement assessments. Sec. 1512. Alternatives. Nothing in this Chapter shall be deemed to prevent the City from commencing a criminal action, civil action or other judicial or administrative proceeding to abate the alleged nuisance or to obtain any other appropriate remedy in addition to, as an alternative to, or in conjunction with the procedures authorized by this Chapter. PART 3: If any section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, sentence, or clause of this Ordinance or any part thereof is for any reason held to be unlawful, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portion of this Ordinance or any part thereof. The City Council hereby declares that it would have passed each section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, sentence, or clause thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, sentence, or clause be declared in violation of the law. PART 4: Effective Date. This Ordinance shall not become effective and in full force and effect until 12:01 a.m. on the thirty first day after its final passage. However, within fifteen (15) days after adoption by the City Council, the Ordinance shall be published once, together with the names of the Council Members voting thereon, in a newspaper of general circulation within the City.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Make a playful effort to change something you’ve always assumed you could never change. Freewillastrology.com ARIES (March 21-April 19): When it came time to write your horoscope, I was feeling unusually lazy. I could barely summon enough energy to draw up the planetary charts. I said a weak prayer to the astrological muses, pleading, “Please don’t make me work too hard to discover the message that Aries people need to hear; just make the message appear in my mind.” As if in response, a voice in my head said, “Try bibliomancy.” So I strolled to my bookcase, shut my eyes, pulled out the first book I felt, and went to a random page. Here’s what I saw when I opened my eyes: “The Taoist concept of wu-wei is the notion that our creative active forces are dependent on and nourished by inactivity and that doing absolutely nothing may be a good way to get something done.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There’s an old Rosicrucian vow you might have fun trying out: “I pledge to interpret every experience that comes my way as a communication of God with my soul.” If you carry out this intention with relaxed playfulness, every bird song you hear is an emblem of Divine thought; every eavesdropped conversation provides hints of the Creator’s current mood; the shape that spilled milk takes on your tabletop is an intimation of eternity breaking into our time-gripped realm. In my years of offering you advice, I have never before suggested you try this exercise because I didn’t think you were receptive. But I do now. (If you’re an atheist, you can replace “God,” “Divine,” and “Creator” with “Life.”)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Below are unheralded gifts possessed by many Geminis but not commonly identified by traditional astrologers: 1. a skill for deprogramming yourself, for unlearning defunct teachings that might otherwise interfere with your ability to develop your highest potentials; 2. a sixth sense about recognizing artificial motivations, then shedding them; 3. a tendency to attract epiphanies that show you why and how to break taboos that may once have been necessary but aren’t any longer; 4. an ability to avoid becoming overwhelmed and controlled by situations you manage or supervise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In 1993, I began writing a book titled The Televisionary Oracle. By 1995, I had generated more than 2,000 pages of material that I didn’t like. Although I was driven by a yearning to express insights that had been welling up in me for a long time, nothing about the work felt right. I was stuck. But finally I discovered an approach that broke me free: I started to articulate difficult truths about aspects of my life about which I was embarrassed, puzzled, and ashamed. Then everything fell into place. The process that had been agonizing and fruitless became fluidic and joyful. I recommend that you try this strategy to dissolve any mental blocks you may be suffering from: Dive into and explore what makes you feel ashamed, puzzling, or embarrassed. I bet it will lead to triumph and fulfillment, as happened for me.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I am overjoyed that you’re not competing for easy rewards or comparing yourself to the mediocre crowd. Some people in your sphere may not be overjoyed, though. To those whose sense of self isn’t strong, you may be like an itchy allergen; they may accuse you of showing off or acting puffed up. But freaks like me appreciate creative egotists like you when you treat your personality as a work of art. In my view, you’re a stirring example of how to be true to one’s smartest passions. Keep up the good work! Continue to have too much fun! I’m guessing that for now you can get away with doing just about anything you want as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let’s enjoy a moment of poignant silence in honor of your expired illusions. They were soulful mirages: full of misplaced idealism and sweet ignorance and innocent misunderstandings. Generous in ways you may not yet realize, they exuded an agitated beauty that aroused

aduLt services

Awesome Exotic Dancers Girls, Guys, Fantastic Parties or Just For You. Now Hiring 966-0161

both courage and resourcefulness. Now, as those illusions dissolve, they will begin to serve you anew, turning into fertile compost for your next big production.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Old rules and traditions about how best to conduct intimate relationship are breaking down. New rules are still incubating. Right now, the details about how people express their needs to give and receive love seem to be riddles for which there are no correct answers. So what do you do? How do you proceed with the necessary blend of confidence and receptivity? Can you figure out flexible strategies for being true both to your need for independence and your need for interdependence? I bring these ruminations to your attention, Libra, just in time for the “Transforming Togetherness” phase of your cycle.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s time for your once-a-year shout-out to your most audacious possibilities. Ready? Go ahead and say, “Hallelujah! Hosanna! Happiness! Hooray for my brilliant future!” Next, go ahead and say, “I have more than enough power to create my world in the image of my wisest dreams.” Now do a dance of triumph and whisper to yourself, “I’m going to make very sure I always know exactly what my wisest dreams are.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): During the next three weeks, I advise you to load up on copious amounts of caffeine from Monday at 8 a.m. until Friday at 6 p.m. Then drastically cut back on the coffee and consume large amounts of alcohol and/or marijuana from 6:01 p.m. on Friday through 6 p.m. on Sunday. This is the ideal recipe for success. JUST KIDDING! I lied. Here’s the truth, Sagittarius: Astrological indicators suggest you would benefit from making the coming weeks be the most undrugged, alcohol-free time ever. Your potential for achieving natural highs will be extraordinary, as will your potential to generate crucial breakthroughs while enjoying those natural highs. Take advantage!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I don’t presume you should or will gleefully embrace the assignment I’ll propose. The task may indeed be too daunting for you to manage right now. If that’s the case, don’t worry. You’ll get another chance in a few months. But if you are indeed ready for a breathtaking challenge, here it is: Be a benevolent force of wild nature; be a tender dispenser of creative destruction; be a bold servant of your soulful dreams—as you demolish outmoded beliefs and structures that have been keeping a crucial part of your vitality shackled and latent.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I have cast a feisty love spell that will be triggered in anyone who reads the first line of this horoscope. And since you have done that, you are now becoming even smarter than you already were about getting the most out of your intimate alliances. You’re primed to experiment with the delights of feeling with your head and thinking with your heart. Soon you’ll be visited by revelations about any unconscious glitches that might be subtly undermining your togetherness, and you’ll get good ideas about how to correct those glitches. Astrological rhythms will be flowing in your relationships’ favor for the next seven weeks!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I estimate that about 25 percent of your fear results from your hesitation to love as deeply and openly and bravely as you could. Another 13 percent originates in an inclination to mistake some of your teachers for adversaries, and 21 percent from your reluctance to negotiate with the misunderstood monsters in your closet. But I suspect that fully 37 percent of your fear comes from the free-floating angst that you telepathically absorb from the other 7.69 billion humans on our planet. So what about the remaining four percent? Is that based on real risks and worth paying attention to? Yes! And the coming weeks will be an excellent time to make progress in diminishing its hold on you. ∆
