Officials eye roundabouts for Highway 227; residents ‘not convinced’

F

or six years, transportation planners have investigated solutions to the worsening traffic conditions on Highway 227, the popular commuter alternative to Highway 101, which cuts through Edna Valley and regularly bottenecks during rush hour. On Oct. 12, at a virtual public meeting, SLO County and Caltrans officials discussed the results of a recent traffic study affirming a solution they’ve pitched for years, but many local residents oppose: roundabouts. According to officials, roundabouts would be the safest and most cost effective option for alleviating congestion. The recent study suggested installing two to replace existing traffic signals: one at the intersection of Buckley Road, just south of the SLO County Airport; and another at Los Ranchos Road, which leads into Los Ranchos Elementary School and the SLO Country Club. Planners will recommend this project for funding from the SLO Council of Governments (SLOCOG) at its Dec. 1 board meeting, when it will allocate state and local funds to various regional transportation projects. An initial timeline for the project states that construction could start in 2025. “I want to urge you to trust the process here and open your minds. There are some very smart people who are looking at this corridor,” SLOCOG Executive Director Pete Rodgers told about 100 attendees of the three-hour virtual meeting. “We are determined to make the most cost effective and fact-based solution and recommendation for the corridor.” But many residents of nearby neighborhoods spoke during a question-and-answer period and expressed skepticism or opposition to the roundabouts—sentiments that many locals have shared for years. “This whole process started in March 2019, when with very little lead-up, the county and Caltrans announced they were holding a public meeting to announce the installation of a roundabout,” Susan Hack, who lives near the

SCREEENSHOT COURTESY OF THE SLO COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS SLO Country Club, told New Times ahead of the meeting. “Two hundred and fifty people from our community attended, more because we were angry we had not been included in the planning process.” Hack and her neighbors’ concerns range from whether large vehicles— like trucks and tractors, which often utilize Highway 227—can safely navigate the roundabouts, to whether bikes and pedestrians could safely use it, to concerns about how drivers on Buckley or Los Ranchos roads could safely enter the roundabouts during rush hour. Sanford White, who’s also a resident of the SLO Country Club, told officials at the Oct. 12 meeting that he couldn’t imagine entering the proposed twolane roundabout at Los Ranchos Road at peak rush hour. “You have extremely heavy traffic backed up basically all the way through ROUNDABOUT REFORMS Local officials are proposing the installation of two new roundabouts to help the airport,” White said. “When that alleviate traffic on Highway 227. traffic is bumper and bumper and they hit that roundabout … to think for a second that you’re going to have a space a four-lane highway option would actually speed where people from Los Ranchos can get in, get up traffic flows more than roundabouts, its to the left-hand lane, and go around back to the authors still recommended roundabouts for their north, it’s not going to happen.” other benefits, like safety. But transportation officials focused back “We’re just following the data,” Caltrans on the results of the recent study—the second Project Manager Paul Valadao said at the study to examine the project, commissioned in meeting. “These are data-driven decisions.” response to community pushback. Kathy Borland, a resident of Buckley Road, The follow-up study examined the benefits noted that the two intersections in question and drawbacks of two possible solutions to the have not seen a fatal collision in years.

Nurses speak out in support of staffing ratios

during other surges. “It would have made all the sense in the world to do the same thing during last month’s Delta surge,” Cunningham told New Times in an Oct. 7 written statement. For Baker and other nurses, lifting ratios leads to burnout for healthcare workers and doesn’t help patients. “As nurses, when we saw the request for ratio waivers, not only did we feel extremely let down, but we are worried about our patients,” Baker said. “Historically, the studies have shown that [without ratios] patients are at higher risk to get infections, there’s higher [chances] for mistakes to be made, so the care is just much better when you have ratios.” One study published in 2017 by Annals of Intensive Care medical journal found that patients’ odds of survival substantially decreased in high workload hospital environments. In response to the nurses speaking out on Oct. 7, Cunningham stood by his original stance. “Whatever its merits in normal times, complying with the ratio requirement during a

On the corner of Santa Rosa Street and Murray Avenue in San Luis Obispo, people wearing red scrubs began to gather around noon on Oct. 7. A few had their kids with them, strapped into strollers, and others were holding red signs that read, “Safe Staffing Saves Lives.” These Central Coast registered nurses and California Nurses Association union members met outside Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center to advocate for the nurse-to-patient ratios they are afforded by a California law, the only such requirement in the nation. Twin Cities Community Hospital nurse Heather Baker said she and the other nurses were inspired to speak out after Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo) sent a letter to state Health and Human Services Agency Secretary Mark Ghaly requesting temporary waivers for the staffing ratio. When cases were surging in January, the state issued waivers that allowed hospitals to temporarily exceed ratios. From Cunningham’s perspective, the same option should be available

COVID-19 surge—in the middle of a nationwide nursing shortage—forces hospitals to turn away patients in need of an ICU bed,” Cunningham said. “We cannot afford regulations that make it difficult for hospitals to care for sick members of our community.” From Baker’s perspective, making nurses take on more patients will only make the shortage worse. She said it will inspire nurses to leave the field. Baker suggested some quick fixes that hospitals can implement right now to improve patient care with the staff they already have. “There’s things that we can do including training staff for other departments, establishing a float pool of nurses, and providing incentives for cross training so that nurses can float to other departments without being called off of their shifts when their department is low,” she said. “There is not a single nurse that I’ve talked to in my hospital that thinks that ratio waivers are the solution for the problem that we’re facing.” Tenet Health Central Coast, the company that owns Sierra Vista and Twin Cities NEWS continued page 6

Public Comment Period: October 14, 2021 to December 9, 2021 WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED? The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) invites you to review and comment on a proposed plan, called a draft Revised Statement of Basis, to manage contamination in select areas at the Morro Bay Power Plant located at 1290 Embarcadero in Morro Bay (Site). Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) began generating electricity at the power plant in 1955 using either natural gas or oil as a fuel source. In 1998, PG&E transferred ownership of the Site to Duke Energy Morro Bay, LLC and then to Dynegy. In 2014, Dynegy closed the power plant. In 2020, Dynegy changed its name to the Morro Bay Power Company (MBPC). As the original owner of the power plant, PG&E remains responsible for investigating and addressing environmental conditions resulting from historical power generation activities. Any actions to demolish or redevelop the property are not a part of this project and will be handled separately by MBPC. PG&E and MBPC have conducted environmental investigations at the Site that have found the presence of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) and metals in soil that are greater than residential levels in a portion of AOC 1. To address these chemicals of concern, the Revised Statement of Basis proposes managing impacts in place by implementing a land use covenant (LUC) that restricts select areas of the Site to future commercial/industrial uses. A Soil Management Plan has also been established that describes the safe handling and disposal of contaminated soil should it be disturbed during any future earthmoving work. DTSC would also require the current property owner to conduct annual inspections and reporting to ensure the land use remains compliant with the LUC and that the site use remains protective over time. This proposed remedy would offer long-term protection of human health and the environment under approved land uses without causing any disruption to the community. CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT (CEQA): The remedy will not require construction or implementation of a physical remedy and therefore is exempt from CEQA. HOW DO I PARTICIPATE? During the public comment period, from October 14 to December 9, 2021, we encourage you to review the draft Revised Statement of Basis. Please send comments no later than December 9, 2021 to: John Bystra, Project Manager, DTSC Sacramento Office, 8800 Cal Center Drive, Sacramento, CA 95826 or by e-mail to John.Bystra@dtsc.ca.gov. DTSC will also hold a public meeting on Zoom on November 16, 2021, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, to present information about this Revised Statement of Basis and take questions and comments from the public.

Grover Beach invests $50,000 in child care assistance

Roughly 20 families stand to destress financially because Grover Beach funneled $50,000 into child care support services. The Grover Beach City Council identified a growing need for more investment in child care during its Oct. 12 meeting, approving the funds to be split equally between the San Luis Obispo County YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club. “The city realizes that child care is a critical issue for our community for the well-being of families and for working parents to have care for their children. The lack of reliable and affordable child care availability has a significant impact on working parents which inhibits economic activity and recovery,” Grover Beach City Manager Matthew Bronson said. The $50,000 is a grant from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) that’s

meant for child care assistance. It adds to an August 2020 initiative where the city allocated $50,000 in general fund money for child care. The ARPA grant will be channeled into scholarships and extracurricular programs. Bronson said it’s expected to last until the end of the current school year in June 2022. “The city will work with the Boys and Girls Club and YMCA to report back to the [City] Council in 2022 on the use of these funds and other opportunities for support,” he said. Rebecca Britton, the executive director of the South County chapter of the Boys and Girls Club, told New Times that more than 75 percent of the group’s youth members live in the Grover Beach ZIP code. Three of its seven service sites are in the beach city too. Many of the families the club serves rely on scholarship programs to help them with daily costs. “In addition to providing a safe and fun place for our community’s youth to be while their families are away from the home, our goal is not to put fees on the backs of families we serve,” Britton said. Monica Grant, the chief executive officer of SLO County YMCA, said that the approved money would help families and business through the pandemic. “As the economic impact from the pandemic continues, these child care subsidies will ensure that our Y’s before/ after school and camp programs remain affordable and accessible for working families who live in Grover Beach,” she said. City Councilmember Daniel Rushing said he appreciated the city taking

initiative on child care. “My daughter spent years in the Boys and Girls Club after school, and they’re an amazing operation. I hear only amazing things about the YMCA,” Rushing said during the meeting. “This past year and going forward, I know child care is huge. The fact that Grover Beach was able to step up is hopefully going to help out a lot of people.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

SLO County selects a clerk-recorder

San Luis Obispo County will soon have a new top elections official following a tumultuous search. On Oct. 12, the SLO County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to appoint Elaina Cano, an election’s division manager with Santa Barbara County, to fill the clerkrecorder position left vacant by Tommy Gong’s resignation in July. The board tapped Cano for the interim job over acting SLO County ClerkRecorder Helen Nolan, who assumed lead duties in the department following Gong’s resignation. The supervisors interviewed the two candidates in open session on Oct. 12, while a third finalist, Jeffrey Barry, the former chief deputy clerk-recorder in Yolo County, withdrew from consideration. “This is a difficult decision,” 1st District Supervisor John Peschong said at the meeting. “I think they’re both highly qualified. They’d both be very, very good. I do believe that Ms. Cano is the choice.” A 16-year veteran of local election offices, Cano served as assisant clerk-

recorder in SLO County before taking her current position in Santa Barbara County, which she’s held since 2019. In her comments to the Board of Supervisors, Cano said she has “the confidence, experience, and temperament to serve as your top elections official.” “SLO is my heart and soul,” said Cano, a longtime SLO resident. “This is what I want to do.” Fifth District Supervisor Debbie Arnold cast the lone dissenting vote. She protested the process that led up to the board’s interviews, in which a selection committee forwarded only three candidates for final interviews when the board had asked for seven. “This is not the process we voted for,” Arnold said. “I was hoping we could start over.” In passing over Nolan, who will remain a deputy clerk, 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson noted that the county will now have “two extraordinary people working in our clerk’s office.” “We can’t make a bad decision here,” Gibson said. Cano will head the department until January 2023, when the next elected clerk-recorder will take office. County officials did not announce Cano’s start date before press time. —Peter Johnson

SLO city, North County report more COVID-19 violations

Atascadero’s Food 4 Less was moderately busy with customers the afternoon of Oct. 12. While a majority were wearing masks, about a quarter of those inside weren’t. Posted to the inside of the automatic sliding entrance door, a crisp piece of white printer paper read “FACE MASK UPDATE,” stating that all customers must wear a mask regardless of their vaccination status. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patronage,” the paper says at the bottom. According to an email from Atascadero resident Colleen Annes, as recently as Oct. 8, this Food 4 Less location was sending a different message to its customers. In a photo Annes snapped of the store’s signage, Food 4 Less was only asking nonvaccinated customers to mask up. The current San Luis Obispo County health order requires everyone to wear a mask indoors at businesses, regardless of their vaccination status. Annes reported the alleged mask violations to the county’s Office of Emergency Services, which forwarded her complaint to the city of Atascadero’s enforcement team, stating that the county doesn’t have jurisdiction over city areas. Terrie Banish, deputy city manager

Shoresman said in the majority of cases, education and information is enough to bring businesses into compliance. “We also recently sent out a mailer to 11,000 businesses in SLO County, including information about the mask mandate and signage they can place in their windows,” she added. In rare cases of egregious violations, Shoresman added, “as we have done since the beginning of the pandemic with other health officer orders, we have issued directed orders at businesses to bring them into compliance.” ∆ —Malea Martin

Pandemic pressures are having lasting effects on the pet care system, including a shortage of local veterinary professionals

A

tascadero couple Mark and Noreen Jewell knew they had to act fast when their beloved cat Ashley was dying of cancer in August. But with San Luis Obispo County’s pet hospitals full to capacity, they were given two difficult choices: wait a month for Ashley to get emergency crossover service, or pay the pandemic-inflated cost of a walk-in appointment. “If you have kitty disease, six weeks is an eternity,” Mark said. So, they shelled out $169 after a hurried nighttime hospital visit, and Ashley was cremated. The Jewells aren’t alone in their struggle to find timely and wallet-friendly pet care services. Lockdowns from COVID-19 in 2020 impacted overbooked animal hospitals and veterinary services more than ever, and though the need for pet care continues rising, there’s also a shortage of veterinary staff across the state. Amid ongoing impacts, veterinarians are sympathetic to the plights of pets and their owners. “In more emergency settings, we’re going to get clients who are on edge. They haven’t processed it, and are asked for money, too. It’s a lot to put on people,” said Aaron Schechter, the Jewells’ vet at Atascadero Pet Hospital & Emergency Center. “The shorter fuse is there, too. That depends on how the world is right now.” Schechter and his staff are part of a large group of animal care service providers who remain mentally and emotionally drained by the seemingly endless cases coming through their doors. Medical staff can’t seem to pin down an exact reason for the new influx of pet patients, either. But they have some clues. “There was definitely a feeling that adoptions were going up and going like crazy across the nation when COVID first started,” said Bonnie Markoff, the founder/vet of SLO’s Animal Care Clinic. But after discussing with other veterinary organizations, Markoff discovered that the initial adoption spike

os Osos’ only source of drinking water is still threatened by seawater intrusion after six years of work trying to reverse the trend. Chloride (salt) levels in the coastal basin were 27 percent higher in 2020 compared to 2019, and 41 percent higher than in 2018. If the metric jumps another 25 percent, it would be above the threshold that’s acceptable for public drinking water. Given that lack of progress, and now the new drought, Los Osos Community Services District (CSD) General Manager Ron Munds believes Los Osos needs to start looking at new sources of water for the first time. “We need to be looking outside,” Munds told New Times. On Sept. 9, the Los Osos CSD’s board of directors received a presentation on the status of the basin and then voted unanimously to authorize Munds to begin investigating new possibilities for water. “I’ve always had a concern about the viability of our groundwater basin longterm,” said Munds, whose career in municipal water includes 27 years with the city of San Luis Obispo. “Where will the groundwater basin be in 30 years or more? What’s our plan B?” Currently, Los Osos has no plan B if the basin fails. In 2015, SLO County Superior Court approved a plan that aims to salvage the aquifer that stretches from the Morro Bay estuary to the inland valley farmland. It’s trying to reverse two dangerous trends: nitrate pollution in the upper aquifer, which was caused by septic systems; and seawater intrusion into the lower aquifer. The key strategies in the plan, according to Munds, are to shift pumping from the lower aquifer to the upper aquifer, which is improving since a new sewer plant was built, and to move production wells away from the coast to address seawater intrusion. Yet despite the years of work and a few completed projects, a 2020 annual report on the basin showed meager progress and even a backslide on chloride. “We’re six years in, and the timeline [for the plan] was 10 years. … We’re not seeing the results we expected,” Munds said. “It’s being exacerbated by drought—conditions that I think we’ll see more and more of.” Munds noted that the impact of climate change on the basin isn’t just about drought. Even in wet years, storms are expected to get shorter and more intense—he called them “gushers”—which won’t provide as much opportunity for rainwater to percolate into the ground. Basin projects are expensive and take time to design and execute. While it’s still too early to call the plan a bust, Munds said it’s prudent to start considering alternatives now. He recalled the city of SLO’s efforts Send any news to diversify its water portfolio or story tips to following the drought of the late news@newtimesslo.com. ’80s and early ’90s.

While the center has many of the tried and true, Exploratorium-esque exhibits (a coin funnel to learn about gravity, a plasma globe with colorful electricity bolting around), it also features stations that most kids—and even adults—haven’t explored before.

Caring for Cayucos The community has been very clear about wanting the Vets Hall restored

I

read the article about the Cayucos Veterans Hall in the Sept. 23 edition of New Times (“Cayucos seeks more funding for Vets Hall restoration”) and the new community effort to raise money and send the county a message that this community wants its hall fixed. As a resident of Cayucos and a member of the Cayucos Lions Club, I would like to add some information from my perspective. There are two components in caring for the hall. The first is the physical maintenance of the building, and the county has been responsible for that. The closure was the result of not maintaining the hall and letting it fall into such disrepair over time that the only option was to close it. The same thing happened with the Cayucos Pier. For me, this clearly demonstrates a lack of commitment and responsibility by SLO County for these historic cornerstones of our community. The other component of caring for the hall is managing the use of the building for events. Once the hall is reopened, the article stated that the county will manage the hall and that the Lions rent it out occasionally. These brief sentences deserve some consideration, because I do not believe that management of the hall by the county represents the best for Cayucos, coupled with the the way in which the hall and pier were maintained under county oversight, forcing the closure of both.

The My question is: What is the county fact is that the Cayucos Lions Club has planning to do with the money when managed the hall for the last 40 years they take it over? (at no cost to the county) based on a After the hall was closed, there were long-standing agreement, and the Lions monthly bills that still needed to be paid, have been an excellent steward of the even though the hall was not able to hall and for the community.

use the hall. The county knows about this money and the efforts already made. It is still sitting there, waiting to be used for that purpose. In my opinion, the county already got that message several years ago. Now they want yet another message to refresh their memory. In conclusion, I believe that the only thing that Cayucos wants is a useable building. I personally don’t want a lavish restoration and unneeded “improvements” and artist’s renderings that have been on display for the last three years. Keep it simple: The hall represents a solid business plan that will generate an excellent income stream for the community. After witnessing the closure of the pier and the hall due to the county’s inability to maintain them, I am opposed to the county taking management of the hall out of local hands and doing it themselves. The Lions have demonstrated decades of good stewardship and proven fiscal responsibility for the hall. I think the county should be ashamed for letting this issue go unresolved for five years and for its decision to backtrack on how the hall has been managed for the last four decades. For me, the county has sent the town a clear message: “Cayucos, raise the money yourselves to fix your hall, and then we’re going to take the hall away from you and use the income for what we want.” I applaud the Cayucos community for forming a Veterans Hall Restoration committee, and I will be sending in my family’s donation after I finish this letter. ∆ Phil Kiesewetter is a Cayucos resident and member of the Cayucos Lions Club.

The oil next time

I

’m writing this the day after the oil spill off the coast of Orange County hit the news. By the time you read this, I doubt I’ll be the only one to have drawn a straight line between what just happened off Orange County and what happened two days earlier at the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission. But just to make sure: The Orange County spill has reportedly dumped at least 126,000 gallons of oil into the sea. The oil apparently started flowing from a pipeline connected to an oil platform 5 miles offshore of Long Beach on the night of Oct. 1 (but wasn’t reported until the next day) and began washing up onshore and seeping into coastal marshlands. Per the Daily Breeze, the spill will entail tens of millions of dollars in damage and cleanup costs, and has “coated hundreds of animals in oil, many of which died. It also forced offshore areas to be put off limits to fishing.” Two days earlier, the Exxon Be Gone coalition celebrated a win at the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission, when the commissioners voted 3-2 to recommend denial of the ExxonMobil Interim Trucking—Santa Ynez Unit Phased Restart Project. The project name is a mouthful, but here’s what it means: ExxonMobil proposes to restart three aging, offshore oil platforms that have been shuttered since the Refugio oil spill six years ago, plus the restart of their onshore facilities, expected to generate 317,043 metric tons of greenhouse gasses per year (equivalent to about 70,000 cars), and then transport more than 1 billion gallons of oil via 25,000 round-trip diesel tanker truck trips a year through Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Kern counties on highways 101 and 166. The Sierra Club’s Los Padres Chapter for Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, along with the Santa Lucia Chapter, KernKaweah Chapter, Sierra Club California, and Sierra Club National were among the groups urging denial of the project at the Sept. 29 meeting of the Santa Barbara Planning Commission. We pointed out that the risk of spills from trucking the oil is a significant Class 1 impact under the California Environmental Quality Act; trucks are the least safe way to transport oil; many places prohibit transporting hazardous materials next to waterways, over bridges, through tunnels, and on windy roads; and these particular stretches of road have a long and deadly accident history. Worse: The project’s environmental review considered only the trucking impacts, not the risks of restarting offshore oil production from Exxon’s three aging offshore platforms, which are beyond their projected end of life, have had numerous documented problems with corrosion and leaks, and were slated for decommissioning in 2020 if the Refugio spill hadn’t intervened in 2015. Offshore spills can never be completely cleaned up, and marine ecosystems do not fully recover even decades after a spill. It also seemed worth mentioning that in 1982, the year Exxon signed a memorandum of agreement with Santa Barbara County and the state of California for the Santa Ynez offshore unit, promising to “provide for protection

of the environment while undertaking the production of oil and gas resources,” Exxon’s environmental affairs office sent an internal report to management that said that the consequences of climate change could be catastrophic, and that a significant reduction in fossil fuel consumption would be necessary to curtail future climate impacts. Exxon then spent the next 40 years covering this up and blocking solutions. At the end of that hearing, the county Planning Commission agreed: The project wasn’t worth the risks, and they would recommend denial to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. I want to think that if that meeting had happened four days later, the 3-2 vote would have been much less close. Katie Davis, chair of the Sierra Club’s Los Padres Chapter, noted, “Opposition to this project is overwhelming, ranging from cattle ranchers at Hollister Ranch, the Chumash people who have inhabited the Gaviota coast and our region for thousands of years, the Fearless Grandmas and student groups, the coastal cities, school and water districts, business leaders, environmental groups that first emerged from the 1969 oil spill, people from all three counties, and even beyond— literally thousands of people have spoken in opposition to this project, and multiple rallies and protests have been held over the course of several years.” Conspicuous by their silence: the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors and the cities of Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, and Paso Robles. This project promises a double whammy: three resurrected offshore rigs, plus 70 tanker trucks a day coming up the coast and across Highway 166 through the Cuyama River watershed. Now would be the time for our local governments to decide where they stand on the issue of marine wildlife, fishing, tourism, and recreation vs. an oil giant’s profits, and send formal notification of that position and a request for action to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. You’ve got one shot. Early November would be good. ∆ Andrew Christie is the director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club. Send comments through clanham@newtimesslo.com.

The Shredder

Alone on a hill W

eek after week, alone on her hill, a SLO County Supervisor with a furrowed brow is sitting perfectly still. And she can’t help but grandstand. But, this time, the fool on her hill saw her argument going down. And the eyes in her head see a new top county elections official stepping in. Any guess as to who our lonely lady is? It’s 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold, who just had to speak up during the Oct. 12 special meeting where supervisors finally chose a new clerkrecorder to replace Tommy Gong. Arnold was not happy with her very qualified choices! She wanted seven candidates to pick from, and the committee they chose only offered supervisors three. Duh, we know! We’ve been listening to you bitch about it for weeks now! “We wanted a transparent process,” she lamented. Wait, am I crazy? This is, like, the most transparent process the county has ever engaged in. Since Gong left, everyone in the county has known exactly what’s happened or been happening during the whole clerk-recorder replacement appointment process. And everyone also offered their hot takes on it, most of which were neither hot nor worth taking. Let’s take Mike Brown from COLAB’s (Coalition of Labor, Agriculture, and Business) lame, last-minute hot take

inspiration. He rolled into the meeting late, fresh off of sitting in traffic on Highway 101, and he was pissed! “Highway 101 is completely shut down in Nipomo,” he said, alluding to some Caltrans project near Laetitia Winery that caused traffic that morning. “And this goes down to the issue you’re facing here and the issue with expertise. Some expert engineer, right, the project manager, who decides on a Tuesday morning that this thing is going to start … . It’s just so typical of the problem of government expertise, because there’s no accountability.” Wow, one morning of bad traffic, and he’s ready to throw job qualifications out the window. No more “expert” civil engineers for the roads! Let’s have the next Caltrans project headed up by a ballet dancer or a English professor! Then we’ll finally have some accountability. What Arnold really wanted—which she has repeated ad nauseam—was to start the entire appointment process over again. “Our motion was ignored. ... Today, we are the voice of the citizens, and I just want to do my job,” Arnold said, and promptly declined to do her job by not choosing a candidate to appoint. “It sounds like you guys have it taken care of.” In a surprising show of bipartisan congeniality—except for ideological Arnold—supervisors chose Santa Barbara County Elections Division Manager Elaina Cano as the next SLO County clerk-

interview process about some recorder. And 1st District Supe recall election night shenanigans John Peschong, who said that both in Santa Barbara County. Cano and fellow applicant Acting A group of extremely fired-up Clerk-Recorder Helen Nolan were folks actually met some county “highly qualified” (I guess he didn’t elections ballot box drivers on the sit in traffic that morning), even went night of Sept. 14 (recall election so far as to actually praise Clerknight), heckled and harassed Recorder’s Office staff! them, and then followed them back to “I think we have a very good Clerkthe elections office.

■ CALIFORNIA AREA RESIDENTS CASH IN: Pictured above are protected Priority Packages containing the unsearched Vault Bags that everyone will be trying to get. It’s hard to tell how much these unsearched bags loaded with rarely seen Gov’t issued coins could be worth someday. That’s because each Vault Bag is known to contain nearly 3 pounds of Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the 1800’s including all those shown in today’s publication. In addition, after each bag is loaded with over 200 rarely seen coins, each verified to meet a minimum collector grade of very good or above, the dates and mint marks are never searched to determine collector values. So you better believe at just $980 these unsearched Vault Bags are a real steal.

Rarely seen United States coins up for grabs in California -zip codes determine who gets them

Unsearched Vault Bags loaded with rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the 1800’s and worth up to 50 times their face value are actually being handed over to residents who find their zip code below and beat the 48 hour order deadline

“The vaults at Federated Mint are going empty,” said Laura A. Lynne, U.S. Coin and Currency Director for Federated Mint. That’s because a decision by Federated Mint to release rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins, some worth up to 50 times their face value, means unsearched Vault Bags loaded with U. S. Gov’t issued coins dating back to the 1800’s are now being handed over to U.S. residents who find their zip code listed in today’s

publication. “But don’t tha n k the Government. As U.S. Coin and Currency Director for Federated Mint, I get paid to inform and educate the general public regarding U.S. coins. Ever since the decision by Federated Mint to release rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins to the general public — I’m being asked how much are the unsearched Vault Bags worth? The answer is, there’s no way to tell. Coin values always

fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but we do know this. Each unsearched bag weighs nearly 3 pounds and is known to contain rarely seen Morgan Silver Dollars and these coins alone could be worth $40 - $325 in collector value each according to The Official Red Book, a Guide Book of United States Coins. So there’s no telling what you’ll find until you search through all the coins. But you better believe at just $980 these unsearched Vault

Bags are a steal, “said Lynne. “These are not ordinary coins you find in your pocket change. These are rarely seen silver, scarce, collectible and non-circulating U.S. coins dating back to the 1800’s so we won’t be surprised if thousands of U.S. residents claim as many as they can get their hands on. That’s because after the bags were loaded with nearly 3 pounds of U.S. Gov’t issued coins, each verified to meet a minimum collector grade R1054R-1

■ UNSEARCHED: Pictured above are the unsearched Vault Bags being handed over to California residents who call the National Toll-Free Hotline before the 48-hour deadline ends. And here’s the best part. Each Vault Bag is loaded with over 200 U.S. Gov’t issued coins, including all the coins pictured in today’s publication, some dating back to the 1800’s and worth up to 50 times their face value. Each coin is verified to meet a minimum collector grade of very good or above before the bags are securely sealed and the dates and mint marks are never searched by Federated Mint to determine collector value. If you find your zip code listed, call 1-800-869-3164 EXT.UV31328 immediately. (Continued from previous page)

quality of very good or above, the dates and mint marks were never searched to determine collector values and the bags were securely sealed. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you search all the coins,” said Lynne. The only thing U.S. residents who find their zip code printed in today’s publication need to do is call the National TollFree Hotline before the 48-hour deadline ends. This is very important. After the Vault Bags were loaded with over 200 of U.S. Gov’t issued coins, each verified to meet a minimum collector grade quality of very good or above, the dates and mint marks were never searched to determine collector values. The Vault Bag fee has been set for $1,500 for residents who miss the 48-hour deadline, but for those U.S. residents who beat the 48hour deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $980 as long as they call the

National Toll-Free Hotline before the deadline ends. “Remember this, we cannot stop collectors from buying up all the unsearched bags of coins they can get in this special advertising announcement. And you better believe with each bag being loaded with nearly 3 pounds of U.S. Gov’t issued coins we’re guessing they’re going to go quick,” said Lynne. The phone lines will be ringing off the hook beginning at precisely 8:30 a.m. this morning. That’s because each unsearched Vault Bag is loaded with the rarely seen coins pictured left and highly sought after collector coins dating clear back to the 1800’s including iconic Morgan Silver Dollars, a historic Peace Silver Dollar, stunning Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars, the collectible Silver Eisenhower Dollars, spectacular Silver Liberty Head Half and Quarter Dollars, rarely seen Silver Franklin Half Dollars, high demand President Kennedy Silver

Half Dollars, beautiful Silver Standing Liberty Quarter Dollars, American Bicentennial Quarters, rare Liberty V Nickels, one cent Historic Wheat Coins including 1943 “Steel Cents”, one of the beautiful Winged Liberty Head Dimes, scarce Indian Head one cent U.S. coins and the last ever minted Buffalo Nickels. “With all these collectible U.S. Gov’t Issued coins up for grabs we’re going to do our best to answer all the calls,” said Lynne. Thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the U.S. Gov’t issued coins. That means U.S. residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication can claim the unsearched bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. If you find your zip code listed, call 1-800-869-3164 EXT.UV31328 immediately. Just be sure to call before the deadline ends 48 hours from today’s publication date. ■

Arts Artifacts

SLO County artists open their studios to the public

Open Studio Art Tours are about connection—building a kinship between artists and the communities they live in— something that was missing last year, during the height of COVID19 pandemic restrictions. But your opportunity to take a peek behind the scenes is back this year, and you’ve got one weekend, Oct. 16 and 17, left to experience what SLO County Arts Council board member Katy McGrath calls a chance to see creation in progress. “You get to see how the artists are inspired and what goes into it,” McGrath said. “If you get to engage in a conversation, you just kind of see them come alive talking about their work.” Whether it’s unglazed pottery, an unfinished painting, partially soldered jewelry, or half-built furniture pieces you want to know more about, the Arts Council’s annual Open Studio Tours has one or more artists for you. But, most importantly, you can support your favorite artist by purchasing one of their finished pieces, which will be on display and available for sale. Ultimately, the event gives artists a chance to show their work to the public in a more intimate setting than a gallery, by opening their homes and/or studios to the curious and the serious. “It kind of creates that sense of community,” McGrath said, adding that the artistic process becomes more tangible for everyone involved. McGrath said that about 125 artists from San Miguel to Nipomo are participating this year, which is about 30 more artists than in years past. “It could be that a lot of people kind of took up hobbies during the pandemic. ... It could just be that people had more time on their hands, so they actually created more things and actually had a stockpile of pieces ready to be sold,” McGrath said. “You have to have at least 10 completed pieces ready to be sold, which may have been a barrier in the past.” Whatever the reason, the Arts Council is planning to figure it out via an artists forum and debrief after the event, she said, to discuss what worked, what didn’t, and how to better leverage digital elements for the future. Although the Arts Council normally produces a printed flyer for the event, this year, the council opted to stay digital. McGrath said it enabled the council to be a little more nimble with changes, updating the digital flyer on the fly to add artists or make other lastminute changes that the public needed to know about. With region-specific interactive maps and downloadable PDFs of participating artists, the Arts Council’s website, artsobispo.org/ osat, is accessible on the go via a smartphone. And if you visit members.artsobispo.org, you can search participating artists by media type and location. Studios will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 16 and 17, the second and final weekend of the Open Studio Arts Tours. Visit artsobispo.org for more information. ∆ —Camillia Lanham

Scared Scriptless tour brings comedy legends Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood to the Central Coast

O

ver a span of 40 years working in live improv, only one audience member ever came close to rubbing comedian Colin Mochrie the wrong way. “I can’t remember where we were doing the show, but there was a guy sitting in the front row dressed as a horse. And it wasn’t Halloween. It wasn’t any horse-related holiday I can think of,” Mochrie recalled. “I think we finally brought him up on stage and nobody mentioned it. Nobody mentioned he was dressed as a horse.” Still, Mochrie—best known for his work on Whose Line Is It Anyway?—said there has never been a time he regretted asking someone to join him on stage for an interactive improv routine. “It always amazes me, first of all, that they actually come up [on stage]. And they usually give us everything that we want,” Mochrie said. “Even if they seem a little nervous, or, you know, shy at the beginning, by the end of the scene, they’ve given us everything we want.”

Anna From what I’ve read, Craig has been ready to retire his Bond for a while now, but no doubt money talks and they got him to reprise the role one more time—which is great news for us! We actually get a conclusion to his story, and as someone who likes resolution in films, I appreciate that. I’m also looking forward to seeing what projects Craig takes on now that his arc as Bond is finished. He’s a busy actor, and he has plenty of work—a quick glance at his IMDB page shows many upcoming appearances, including Knives Out 2 and 3, both of which will hopefully be as fun as the first. I was excited to see Christoph Waltz play Bond’s villainous foe Blofeld again, even if only briefly. It may not be high art, but you have to admit these films are fun, especially this run featuring Craig. They spent a lot of money making this look awesome on the big screen, so see it there if you want to give yourself the full experience. Just make sure you go to a theater with comfy chairs. This is a long movie, but a fun one all the way through. ∆ Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and freelancer Anna Starkey write Split Screen. Glen compiles streaming listings.

More than a decade later, a mob of Aboriginals led by Baywara (Sean Mununggurr) are attacking white settlements in retribution for the past massacre. Travis’ old commanding officer, Moran (Jack Thompson), and the soldier actually responsible for starting the massacre, Eddy (Callan Mulvey), enlist Travis to stop the bloodshed by teaming with Gutjuk (Jacob Junior Nayinggul), the little boy he saved who’s now a young man, to bring in Gutjuk’s uncle, Baywara. It may be the only way to stop the slaughter of the rest of Gutjuk’s family. This morally ambiguous meat pie Western is beautifully filmed in the Northern Territory

Honey Bee SLO brings a taste of Brazil’s sweet treats to the Central Coast

HOOKED ON HONEY Honey Bee SLO co-owners Vanessa Higgins, left, and Carina Lahmeyer sell their homemade Brazilian honey cakes at several Central Coast locations, including Pismo Beach Farmers’ Market at the Pier Promenade on Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m. until Oct. 27.

I

f you’ve never had a Brazilian honey cake, or if you’re a transplant missing home, make a beeline for your local farmers’ market. Vanessa Higgins, originally from Brasilia, and Carina Lahmeyer, from Niteroi, have perfected their country’s traditional pão de mel recipe, creating a “killer combination of ingredients in one small bite,” according to customer Gabbi Banducci, a San Luis Obispo resident hailing from Curitiba. “We wanted to bring something different to SLO and connect with our culture,” said Higgins, who, along with Lahmeyer, moved to San Luis Obispo two years ago. “We tried a few recipes until we got it right for us and our customers. “We use a good-quality baking chocolate from Ghirardelli. We chose to use dark chocolate to balance the sweetness of the doce de leite [caramelized milk]. The spices and honey in our cake batter make the texture soft and fluffy. The ingredients all combine to make a super delicious honey cake.” The friends and business partners launched a cottage food operation in March, initially selling to friends, then later this year branched out to farmers’ markets and pop-up locations throughout the Central Coast as news of their sweet treats spread. “We chose the name Honey Bee SLO to refer to the place where we live and love,” Lahmeyer said. “When we have the opportunity to sell our cakes statewide, everyone will know that we make them here in this special place we call home.” Banducci was thrilled when “a dear friend found out about this business, and bought some honey cakes for me, knowing they were homemade by Brazilians. She nailed it on the head with that gift.

“I buy [their product] at least once a month, either for myself or as gifts for friends and family. Everyone that has received those cakes has loved them.” Banducci adds that she is deeply thankful for Higgins and Lahmeyer— providing Brazilians with a taste of home, while “bringing something new to this great place called the Central Coast.” Another regular customer, Reese Galindo of SLO, isn’t Brazilian, but she’s a huge fan, purchasing the sweet treats for afternoon pick-me-ups as well as for milestones such as birthdays and graduations. “Honey Bee SLO honey cakes are an outstanding addition to the culinary scene here in SLO,” she said. “Some of the ingredients remind me of my own Filipino heritage. “There is a wonderful balance of the caramel and the subtle cinnamon flavor of the cake. Then, the dark chocolate brings it all together perfectly. Pair that with a cup of coffee, and nothing beats a honey cake for merienda.” In March, the duo was producing 60 honey cakes per week, “and now we’re up to 300, depending on our event schedule,” according to Lahmeyer.

All items are advertised for 09:00 AM. To verify agenda placement, please call the Department of Planning & Building at (805) 781-5600. WHAT: Hearing to consider a request by Kelly Clyde/96 Old County Road, LLC for a Vesting Tentative Tract Map (Tract 3146) and concurrent Conditional Use Permit (SUB2020-00019) to subdivide an existing 1.78-acre parcel into six lots for the purpose of sale and/or development. Proposed Lots 1 through 5 range from 7,545 to 9,281 square feet (gross), and Lot 6 is approximately 36,234 square feet (gross) and includes approximately 17,000 square feet of dedicated open space area and a 12-foot-wide public trail easement. Consistent with County Code Section 22.104.090 (Templeton Community Standards), Conditional Use Permit approval is required to allow for development of new residential units in proximity to Toad Creek. The project also includes requests for modification to the following Title 21 Real Property Division standards: 1) County Code Section 21.03.010.(4) (Access and Circulation Design) to allow access to more than five parcels by a private road easement and reduce the required road width; 2) County Code Section 21.05.020 (Degree of Improvements) to allow for an exception to the standard road improvement specifications; and 3) County Code Section 21.03.010.(3) (Parcel and Site Design) to allow for frontage width of less than 60 feet on Lots 1 and 2. The project will result in the disturbance of approximately 50,000 square feet for the tract improvement and creation of one private road. The subject property is within the Residential Single-Family (RSF) land use category and is located at 96 Old County Road at Las Tablas Road, in the community of Templeton. The site is in the Salinas River Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Mitigated Negative Declaration prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary.

Mitigation measures are proposed to address Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, and Utilities and Service Systems are included as conditions of approval.

LEGAL NOTICES

(March 21-April 19): According to my understanding of the upcoming weeks, life will present you with unusual opportunities. I suspect you will find it reasonable and righteous to shed, dismantle, and rebel against the past. Redefining your history will be a fun and worthy project. Here are other related activities I recommend for you: 1. Forget and renounce a long-running fear that has never come true. 2. Throw away a reminder of an old experience that makes you feel bad. 3. Freshen your mood and attitude by moving around the furniture and decor in your home. 4. Write a note of atonement to a person you hurt once upon a time. 5. Give yourself a new nickname that inspires you to emancipate yourself from a pattern or habit you want to leave behind.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus poet Donte Collins’ preferred pronouns are “they” and “them.” They describe themself as Black, queer, and adopted. “A lover doesn’t discourage your growth,” they write. “A lover says, ‘I see who you are today, and I cannot wait to see who you become tomorrow.’” I hope you have people like that in your life, Taurus—lovers, friends, allies, and relatives. If there is a scarcity of such beloved companions in your life, the next eight weeks will be an excellent time to round up new ones. And if you are connected with people who delight in your progress and evolution, deepen your connection with them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Author William S. Burroughs claimed his greatest strength was a “capacity to confront myself no matter how unpleasant.” But he added a caveat to his brag: Although he recognized his mistakes, he rarely made any corrections. Yikes! Dear Scorpio, I invite you to do what Burroughs couldn’t. Question yourself about how you might have gone off course, but then actually make adjustments and atonements. As you do, keep in mind these principles: 1. An apparent mistake could lead you to a key insight or revelation. 2. An obstruction to the flow may prod you to open your mind and heart to a liberating possibility. 3. A snafu might motivate you to get back to where you belong. 4. A mess could show you something important you’ve been missing.

SAGITTARIUS

(May 21-June 20): Gemini author Lisa Cron advises her fellow writers, “Avoid exclamation points! Really!! Because they’re distracting!! Almost as much as CAPITALIZING THINGS!!!” I’ll expand her counsel to apply not just to writers, but to all of you Geminis. In my astrological opinion, you’re likely to find success in the coming weeks if you’re understated, modest, and unmelodramatic. Make it your goal to create smooth, suave, savvy solutions. Be cagey and cool and crafty.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In her novel We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Sagittarian author Shirley Jackson wrote, “Today my winged horse is coming, and I am carrying you off to the moon, and on the moon we will eat rose petals.” I wonder what you would do if you received a message like that—an invitation to wander out on fanciful or mysterious adventures. I hope you’d be receptive. I hope you wouldn’t say, “There are no such things as flying horses. It’s impossible to fly to the moon and eat rose petals.” Even if you don’t typically entertain such whimsical notions, the time is favorable to do so now. I bet you will be pleased with the unexpected grace they bring your way.

CANCER

CAPRICORN

GEMINI

(June 21-July 22): Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu told us that water is in one sense soft and passive, but is in another sense superb at eroding jams and obstacles that are hard and firm. There’s a magic in the way its apparent weakness overcomes what seems strong and unassailable. You are one of the zodiac’s top wielders of water’s superpower, Cancerian. And in the coming weeks, it will work for you with even more amazing grace than usual. Take full advantage of your sensitivity, your emotional intelligence, and your empathy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo author James Baldwin told us, “You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discover that it happened 100 years ago to [Russian novelist] Fyodor Dostoyevsky. This is a great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that he is alone.” In that spirit, Leo, and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to track down people who have had pivotal experiences similar to yours, either in the distant or recent past. These days, you need the consoling companionship they can provide. Their influence could be key to liberating you from at least some of your pain.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Poet Octavio Paz described two kinds of distraction. One is “the distraction of the person who is always outside himself, lost in the trivial, senseless, turmoil of everyday life.” The other is “the distraction of the person who withdraws from the world in order to shut himself up in the secret and ever-changing land of his fantasy.” In my astrological opinion, you Virgos should specialize in the latter during the coming weeks. It’s time to reinvigorate your relationship with your deep inner sources. Go in search of the reverent joy that comes from communing with your tantalizing mysteries. Explore the riddles at the core of your destiny.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “We must never be afraid to go too far,

for truth lies beyond,” declared novelist Marcel Proust. I wouldn’t normally offer that counsel to you Libras. One of your strengths is your skill at maintaining healthy boundaries. You know how to set dynamic limits that are just right: neither too extreme nor too timid. But according to my analysis of the astrological potentials, the coming weeks will be one of those rare times when you’ll be wise to consider an alternative approach: that the most vigorous truths and liveliest energies may lie beyond where you usually go.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author Susan Sontag wrote about people who weren’t receptive to her intensity and intelligence. She said she always had “a feeling of being ‘too much’ for them—a creature from another planet—and I would try to scale myself down to size, so I could be apprehendable and lovable by them.” I understand the inclination to engage in such self-diminishment. We all want to be appreciated and understood. But I urge you to refrain from taming and toning yourself down too much in the coming weeks. Don’t do what Sontag did. In my astrological opinion, it’s time for you to be an extra vivid version of yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “I am diagnosed with not having enough insanely addictive drugs coursing through my body,” joked comedian Sarah Silverman. Judging from current cosmic rhythms, I’m inclined to draw a similar conclusion about you. It may be wise for you to dose yourself with intoxicants. Just kidding! I lied. Here’s the truth: I would love for you to experience extra rapture, mystic illumination, transcendent sex, and yes, even intoxication in the coming weeks. My analysis of the astrological omens suggests these delights are more likely and desirable than usual. However, the best way to arouse them is by communing with your favorite nondrug and non-alcohol inebriants. The benefits will last longer and incur no psychological cost.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “The truth is,” writes cartoonist Bill Watterson, “most of us discover where we are headed when we arrive.” I sense this will describe your life during the next six weeks. Your long, strange journey won’t come to an end, of course. But a key chapter in that long, strange journey will climax. You will be mostly finished with lessons you have been studying for many moons. The winding road you have been following will end up someplace in particular. And sometime soon, I suspect you’ll spy a foreshadowing flash of this denouement. ∆
