SLO County supervisors fire back at state ag board

A

confrontational morning session of the Nov. 5 San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors meeting ended in the narrow approval of a written retort to the California State Board of Food and Agriculture, which recently criticized SLO for its handling of water policy over the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. The supervisors’ 3-2 vote delivered the four-page response letter, in which Chief Administrative Officer Wade Horton wrote that the county “adamantly disagrees” with the state ag board’s complaint that commercial agriculture was insufficiently involved in the development of a groundwater sustainability plan. “I read the letter in disbelief,” 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton said of the state’s letter on Nov. 5. “It’s just beyond ridiculous.” The sustainability plan is required by 2014’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, and Paso’s is in final draft form, with a deadline of January 2020 for submission to the state. The state ag board—an advisory board of the California Department of Food and Agriculture— told SLO County in a Sept. 30 letter that it’d “heard from so many people from the agriculture community in the Paso Robles area ... we felt it important to reach out to you.” The letter highlighted “a concern about the limited outreach and engagement of irrigated agriculture” in the sustainability plan development. In the county’s retort, Horton recounted years’ worth of outreach related to the Paso basin since the 2011 drought. “We are proud of the efforts we have made in outreach and education to all of the diverse stakeholders in the Paso basin,” the county’s letter states. Supervisors and community members bickered at length over the letter and the merits of the ag board’s assertions. Jerry Reaugh, a board member on the Estrella-El Pomar-Creston (EPC) Water

District, echoed the sentiments of the ag board and pointed to the supervisors’ vote last year to deny his district a seat on the committee that’s crafting the sustainability plan. “The policy of this board appears to be the concerted effort to not include irrigated ag in the process,” Reaugh said. “The EPC Water District was specifically excluded from the process.” But others involved, like county Water Resources Advisory Committee member Greg Grewal, thought that the complaints were just “sour grapes.” Grewal said the county should be cautious in THREE AGAINST TWO The San Luis Obispo County Board consulting agricultural interests of Supervisors voted 3-2 on Nov. 5 to send a letter responding over the basin. to the California State Board of Food and Agriculture, which “They had plenty of input,” criticized the county for its Paso Robles groundwater policies.

Avila Valley Advisory Council objects to golf resort’s request for entertainment license

The Avila Beach Golf Resort is again facing opposition from its neighbors, this time for an outdoor entertainment license application the business recently filed that some say is illegitimate. At a meeting on Nov. 4, the Avila Valley Advisory Council voted to object to various portions of the golf resort’s application for a temporary commercial outdoor entertainment license, which would allow the resort to host up to 12 one-day events with 1,000 to 3,000 attendees, and five multi-day events with up

to 5,000 attendees each year. If approved, the license would become effective in January 2020, would allow both nonprofit and for-profit activities, and would replace the resort’s current evergreen license that was approved in 2004 and allows only nonprofit events. Although the golf resort isn’t proposing any significant increases in yearly events or volume of customers, Avila Valley Advisory Council members say the resort has been operating its events without the proper permitting for years, leading to noise complaints, parking issues, and traffic congestion on the town’s only road in and out. “The basic concern is safety,” Advisory NEWS continued page 7

Councilmember Sherri Danoff told New Times. “There are concerns about traffic congestion, which in the Avila area could be deadly.” The resort’s evergreen license from 2004 was unusual, Danoff said, and so is the license the business is applying for now, which falls under County Ordinance Chapter 6.56. In a letter to the San Luis Obispo County Tax Collector’s Office, the Advisory Council wrote that a 6.56 license is typically intended for large, one-time events that would garner more than 3,000 attendees and require special consideration. The golf resort should have to apply for a 6.56 license for each of its five proposed larger events each year, the letter reads, and the 12 smaller events should fall under Title 23, which requires a minor use permit issued by the Department of Planning and Building. “Significant is that an events application under Title 23 is subject to requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the decision on the application is appealable to the Coastal Commission, unlike for a license granted under Chapter 6.56,” the Advisory Council’s letter reads. “The subject application under Chapter 6.56 skirts these public protections.” Councilmember Danoff said that while she appreciates the business and talent brought in by the golf resort, it should have to abide by the same rules and regulations that everyone else does, for the sake of safety. “Over the years, what the Advisory Council has repeated in numerous letters is that it supports events that are properly permitted,” Danoff told New Times. “And that’s still not on the table.” Rob Rossi, a longtime co-owner of the Avila Beach Golf Resort, said it was SLO County staff who suggested the business obtain a 6.56 license. After receiving complaints about traffic, noise, and concerns over the legitimacy of the venue’s permits, Rossi said the county suggested a 6.56 license to refine the golf resort’s allowances and requirements. After several meetings with county staff, Rossi said he and his partners agreed to apply for a 6.56 license “in the spirit of cooperation.” The license would hold them to a strict limit of 12 smaller and five larger events each year, which is about what the resort hosts right now. “What this new permit does is it reaffirms those things so that they are clear and understood,” Rossi told New Times. “Hopefully this is just a step in helping quantify and clarify for the benefit of the community.” The golf resort’s application will be considered by the SLO County Board of Supervisors in a hearing on Dec. 17. — Kasey Bubnash

Frogs could impact Morro Bay’s timeline for water facility construction

The U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife is conducting another review of the future Morro Bay water reclamation facility site and its potential impacts on the California red-legged frog. The review could lead to potential cost impacts and delays in the project’s construction. “This came, kind of, last minute, but

VIEWER DISCRETION again it’s an important consideration so we’re going to work through it,” Morro Bay City Manager Scott Collins said. “It will mean delaying the project start for several weeks, up to several months, depending on how long the review takes.” Collins said the city has been working with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in earnest for the past several years in an effort to secure lowinterest funding through the Water Infrastructure and Innovation Act for the project. In 2017, the city’s project was chosen for funding out of 12 nationwide applicants. Because the Water Infrastructure and Innovation Act is federal funding, the project must comply with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act—one of the requirements being a review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under section 7 of the endangered species act. The review, Collins said, began in June. On Oct. 10, the EPA received a letter from Fish and Wildlife indicating that the agency did not agree with the EPA’s determination that the project “may affect, but not likely to adversely impact” the California red-legged frog and its critical habitat. According to the letter, the department’s determination is based on “the proximity of suitable aquatic habitat to the project site, the possibility of California red-legged frogs using Drainage 3 as a dispersal corridor, and the permanent loss of 7.1 acres of upland and dispersal habitat within” the frogs’ critical habitat. The department requested more information on the project regarding preventative measures to keep frogs out of the project’s detention ponds, the fencing surrounding the projects, nighttime lighting, and how much riparian vegetation will be removed or temporarily disturbed along Morro Creek in order to install a pipeline bridge. The EPA responded to the agency with the additional information, but Collins said it will be a few weeks before the city will know how long the review will take. He said the review will temporarily postpone construction, which then leads to cost increases. Construction can’t begin until the review is final. “You can’t predict what the issue will be, but that’s why you build contingency into your budget because there are unknowns, and this is one of them,” Collins said. “The environmental review is very important because it considers other species that use this land, and we want to be a good neighbor not only to our human neighbors but also wildlife.” According to city officials, there hasn’t been a red-legged frog occurrence documented within a square mile of the South Bay Boulevard site since 1996. Failure to comply with this process would nullify federal funding for the project, including the Water Infrastructure and Innovation Act and the Clean Water State Revolving fund. —Karen Garcia

Peoples’ Self-Help Housing seeks $15 million grant for homeless projects

Peoples’ Self-Help Housing has its eye on two new projects to serve local homeless individuals with mental illnesses—and it’s hoping a new state

grant program can help make them a reality. The nonprofit and the San Luis Obispo County Health Agency joined forces to apply for up to $15 million as part of the No Place Like Home program, a state initiative that’s providing counties with funds to construct permanent supportive housing amid its homelessness crisis. In SLO County, a 2019 Point-in-Time count found a 32 percent increase in homelessness compared to 2017. If awarded the grants, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing could likely move forward on its planned projects—a 42-unit complex at 2455 El Camino Real in Atascadero (near the Del Rio Road intersection) and a 50-unit complex at 855 N. 4th St. in Pismo Beach. The apartments and their rents would be heavily subsidized, with mental health services provided to tenants by the SLO County Health Agency. “There’s a lot of funding coming through the state government for affordable housing,” said John Fowler, CEO of Peoples’ Self-Help Housing. “This funding source has really become available very quickly, and we jumped on it. It’s a hard population to build houses for.” The grant program launched this year following voters’ approval of Proposition 2, which unlocked $2 billion in bonds to support permanent supportive housing projects. Earlier this year, SLO County missed out on the first round of competitive grants under the program, as Transitions-Mental Health Association failed to secure property for a $5 million project. This time around, the county and Peoples’ Self-Help Housing has ambitions for two projects instead of one and three times the amount of grant funding. SLO will compete alongside 13 other mediumsized counties for the $52.4 million that’s available. Fowler said his nonprofit could likely leverage the grant into another $20 million from other funding sources to round out financing for the two projects. “By getting this approved, we really move forward with the opportunity that these [projects] will actually happen,” he said. The state is expected to makes its decisions on the grant recipients in June 2020. —Peter Johnson

Los Osos looks at options for a new library

The future location of the Los Osos library is still being discussed as SLO County officials gather community input, and a potential parcel tax could help fund this and future library capital projects. At a Nov. 4 community workshop, Christopher Barnickel, the county’s director of libraries, said that library administration was hoping to get feedback on the community’s preferred location for the facility.

by Jayson Mellom

“We’re going to take that information, go back in December, and start looking at what it is that people in Los Osos value in their community so that the architect can start building a program of what that building looks like,” Barnickel told New Times. He said the library administration hopes to narrow down the scope from four locations to one or possibly two sites by next month with the approximate respective cost estimates, which officials don’t have at this time. Currently, the proposed locations include the existing Los Osos Library facility, which isn’t designed for a second story, so a complete redesign or extension of the facility would be necessary. In that location, potential impacts to the endangered Morro shoulderband snail would need to be mitigated at a cost of $23,000. The second potential site is on the corner of Los Osos Valley Road and Palisades Avenue that has double the snail mitigation needs and cost. It’s owned by SLO County Public Works, so the parcel would need to be purchased, according to county documents. Locations three and four are also on Palisades Avenue. One would need snail mitigation estimated at $35,000 as well as the potential relocation of an existing dog park and tennis court. And the other site is next to the existing Los Osos community center with limited space for development and would likely be a twostory facility. Traditionally, capital costs for new facilities are funded in part by the community, in this case Friends of the Los Osos Library, and the county. The county’s half of the funds are currently generated by public facility fees, which bring in about $250,000 a year, Barnickel said. Although he couldn’t tell New Times how much a project like this could cost, he did say, “Our most expensive project to date, within the last seven years my time being here, has been right around $4 [million] to $5 million.” NEWS continued page 8

Friends of Los Osos Library is close to hitting the $2 million mark through its fundraising efforts, but he said the group still has a ways to go. To aid in paying the cost of this project and future capital improvements to libraries throughout the county, Barnickel said library administration is considering a library bond measure for the November 2020 ballot. On Oct. 22, he received the SLO County Board of Supervisors’ approval to hire a consultant and conduct a feasibility study to gauge the community’s interest in a bond measure. The proposed countywide parcel tax would be $3 a parcel per each $100,000 in property value, which could generate approximately $25 million in bond proceeds. Barnickel said the library will bring the results of the feasibility study back to the SLO Board of Supervisors in December. —Karen Garcia

staff at a meeting on Nov. 5 to develop an ordinance upholding an appeal of the project’s approval, which was submitted on Aug. 22 by Lawrence Silvas. In his appeal, Silvas said the plan to demolish the existing 1,580-square-foot residence and construct in its place a 3,710-square-foot home and attached 513-square-foot accessory dwelling unit would negatively impact the character of the surrounding neighborhood. Silvas cited policies included in Pismo’s 1992 general plan and local coastal plan, which require new developments to be designed to reflect the “small-scale image of the city.” At the meeting, several community and City Council members agreed with the arguments outlined in the appeal. “I don’t believe it fits in with the neighborhood,” Councilmember Sheila Blake said at the meeting. “It’s too large, it’s massive, and there you go.” Blake added that in order to support the project, she’d have to see a significant reduction in size and scale—not simply a removal of the proposed accessory dwelling unit. Councilmember Erik Howell echoed those sentiments. “I wish I could vote for approval for this project,” Howell said. “But I think it is too large, I think it overshadows the neighborhood and is not compatible with community character.” An official decision from the council on the project is expected at the next meeting.

Protection against gun violence Pismo Beach Police Department files first petition for a gun violence restraining order

T

he Pismo Beach Police Department filed its first petition for a gun violence restraining order against a man who threatened to kill his neighbor. According to court documents, on Sept. 14, Pismo Beach Police officers responded to a call in which Robert Ward was threatening to kill his neighbor. Ward was arrested for threatening to commit a crime that would have resulted in death or great bodily injury to another person, the documents stated. The neighbor who he threatened, the documents state, feared for his life and believed Ward was able and willing to carry out the threat. Prior to arresting Ward, police officers observed him in possession of a loaded firearm in public, the document claims. Officers obtained a search warrant for Ward’s residence and located five firearms along with a large amount of ammunition and highcapacity magazines, which were all seized. A week later, on Sept. 21, the document says that the neighbor called the police department to report that he had seen Ward returning to his residence carrying a plastic gun case. Police then filed a piggyback search warrant—which allows law enforcement to search an individual’s home or another location after finding evidence that a

crime was committed elsewhere. With this second search of his home, officers said they found additional ammunition along with firearm parts, a bulletproof vest, a SWAT style belt, multiple knives, and several pellet handguns and rifles. The document goes on to state that due to Ward’s threats against his neighbors, possession of unregistered and un-serialized firearms, large amounts of ammunition and highcapacity magazines, possession of tactical equipment, previous statements made to neighbors about obtaining illegal firearms from other states, and possessing a loaded firearm in public, it was believed that, on account of public safety, Ward should be served with the gun violence restraining order petition. On Sept. 30, Ward was served with an initial petition for the restraining order, but according to the document, the original petitioner didn’t attend the scheduled court hearing and the original petition expired. Pismo Beach police detectives filed a follow-up request on Oct. 24. Pismo Beach Police Sgt. Anthony Hernandez said gun violence restraining orders have been available to law enforcement since Assembly Bill 1014 went into effect in 2016. The process, Hernandez

California’s “red flag” law, AB 1014, went into effect Jan. 1, 2016. It allows immediate family members or law enforcement to petition a court to remove a person’s right to own, possess, or buy a firearm for 21 days. If the court decides that the person in question poses an immediate threat or danger to themselves or others, the court could then issue a gun restraining order.

said, is similar to restraining orders that are granted in domestic violence cases. AB 1014 allows immediate family members or law enforcement to petition a court to remove a person’s right to own, possess, or buy a firearm for 21 days. If the court decides that the person in question poses an immediate threat or danger to themselves or others, the court could then issue a gun restraining order. The bill was created as a response to the May 2014 Isla Vista mass shooting, when Elliot Rodger went on a violent rampage near the UC Santa Barbara campus, shooting and stabbing six people and injuring 14 others. Weeks after the tragedy, former Assemblymember Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara), Assemblymember Nancy Skinner (D-Berkely), and state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson crafted the “red flag” law that went into effect Jan. 1, 2016. Hernandez said the list of individuals who can to file for a gun restraining order

against a potentially violent person will soon expand with state legislation that was passed this year. On Oct. 11, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a package of 15 bills aimed at strengthening gun violence protections. The package includes bills that bolster the existing gun violence restraining order and others that regulate firearms sales. Among them was Assembly Bill 61, which enables an employer, co-worker, employee, or a teacher to file a petition requesting a gun violence restraining order. Assembly Bill 12, also signed into law, extends the duration of a gun violence restraining order to a maximum of five years. Former Assemblyman Williams— currently Santa Barbara County’s 1st District supervisor—told New Times he believes expanding the scope of the red flag law that he and Assemblywoman Skinner authored will reduce gun violence deaths. Williams said that a recent LA Times article reported that the gun violence restraining order law is helping reduce the chance of mass shootings. The findings were part of a study released by the UC Davis School of Medicine. The study was made up of 21 cases where an individual was barred from purchasing a firearm or had a firearm removed from them per court orders. It was found that none of these individuals were later involved in gun-related violence. “Besides expanding the scope of the law, a higher degree of public knowledge is vital,” Williams said.

A new plan for restoration PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

Proposed restoration plan in the Guadalupe Oil Field could limit harmful emissions and save Chevron millions

I

t’s a picture perfect day in this slice of the Nipomo Dunes, where rolling hills of shrub-peppered sand run directly into the misty ocean, creating a coastline habitat perfect for a number of endangered and rare species. This seems like the ideal spot to get outside and enjoy nature, but there aren’t tourists or Central Coast residents out here hiking or sightseeing. Instead, monitoring and recovery wells dot the landscape, dust fences stand in rows, workers maneuver in hardhats and vests, and an intertwining system of narrow roads leads to scattered excavation sites, where graded sand and heavy machinery sit, waiting to be used. Without those blatant markers of human activity, it’d be almost impossible to tell that this vast 2,800-acre slab of land was once home to the Guadalupe Oil Field and a spill that San Luis Obispo County is still pushing to clean up after more than two decades. And that’s exactly the point, according to Danielle Wold, one of many Chevron Environmental Management Company employees working to rid the field of contaminated soil and water and return the land to its natural state. The Guadalupe Oil Field has been in the midst of a remediation and restoration process since the mid ’90s, when diluent—a hydrocarbon similar to kerosene—leaked into the Pacific Ocean and emergency cleanup efforts at the site first started. Oil production began on the property in the 1940s, and Union Oil Company of California (Unocal) managed about 240 oil wells and more than 180 miles of pipeline in the field from 1953 until 1994, during which an estimated 12

million gallons of diluent leaked onto the surrounding dunes, beach, and into the groundwater and ocean. When Chevron purchased Unocal in 2005, it also took on burdens like those at the Guadalupe Oil Field. “A lot of what happened out here was common practice at the time,” says Wold, restoration project manager, as she walks through a portion of the field and points out the footprint of land that could be used for Chevron’s next big move: a “treated soil management area,” where contaminated soil would be essentially placed in a lined hole and buried on-site. The proposed plan would reduce local greenhouse gas and air emissions, Wold says, because up until 2016, Chevron had been excavating impacted soil from the field and then trucking it 40 miles round trip to the Santa Maria Landfill for disposal. The process resulted in 68,820 haul truck trips driving more than 2.6 million miles and dropping off 1.11 million cubic yards of contaminated soil. With about 1.85 million cubic yards of contaminated soil remaining in the Guadalupe Oil Field, Wold says burying it on-site would eliminate more than 69,000 additional haul truck trips, decreasing pollution, traffic congestion, road erosion, and safety issues on local roads. It would also save Chevron roughly $6 million a year for the next 10 years, she says. But compared to the $20 million to $25 million the company spends on restoration efforts at the Guadalupe Oil Field each year, Wold says the savings are only a small benefit compared to those foreseen for the environment. The on-site disposal idea is one of those

REVEGETATING At an on-site nursery, Chevron employees plant seeds that are collected directly from native plants in the Nipomo Dunes and care for the plants until they’re ready to be transplanted to the dunes, where they’re used for revegetation.

plans that just makes sense from every angle, Wold says, and many SLO County community members agree. At a meeting on Oct. 28, the South County Advisory Council voted 8-1 to recommend approval for the project, despite some concerns that burying the contaminated soil could lead to other pollution issues. The polluted soil would be excavated from various areas of the field and buried in an 18.2-acre hole secured by a geosynthetic clay liner overlain by another liner, and then capped and covered by at least 4 feet of clean material, according to the project description. Then the finished surface would be graded and landscaped to match surrounding dune scrub habitat. Some fear the double-liner system won’t be enough to keep the contaminated soil in place, according to Kevin Beauchamp, vice chair of the South County Advisory Council. “But,” Beauchamp told New Times, “it’s not any better in the Santa Maria Landfill, is it?” Chevron’s proposed liner meets higher safety standards than the liner used at the Santa Maria Landfill, Beauchamp said, where the Guadalupe Oil Field soil

is currently being dumped. Beauchamp also noted that the contaminated soil still remaining in the oil field is considered non-hazardous—meaning contamination levels haven’t reached the threshold required to designate the situation as being dangerous. Much of the soil that Chevron still has to remove is contaminated with diluent, but a good portion is untainted gravel and red rock that was brought in to build roads and well pads, material that has to be removed simply because it’s unnatural to the area. A majority of the most dirty work is over, Beauchamp said. Although he’s not happy that a pristine part of SLO County’s coastline was completely polluted, he said the restoration work happening on-site is “pretty amazing,” and this project could prevent further impacts on the environment. Chevron’s proposed plan will next go before the SLO County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors for final approval. Δ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

double-action revolvers. That’s pretty much all he owns. “They’re just so zen,” he says. This range, Wooten proclaims, is one of the best in California. It’s something a lot of the members tell me over the course of the afternoon. In June, California’s two Liberal Gun Club chapters—north and south—met in the middle at SLOSA for a weekend of shooting, which they do twice a year. This national club meeting has drawn in people from all over: Massachusetts, Oregon, Texas, Mississippi, Washington, and more. Many of these people tend to keep the fact that they own guns close to their chest, Wooten says, because there isn’t a lot of “cross-pollination” between sides. “The hard thing is, a lot of these folks are either closeted gun owners with their liberal friends or they’re closeted liberals with their gun friends,” he says. “A lot of them are uncomfortable with being outed.” As the club has become more active in the press, online, and politically, it’s drawn in more members as well as garnered interest in the online community, such as on Facebook. The club has members in every state, chapters in 24 states, and gun safety instructors in 20 states. Education and gun safety are a large part of what the club does. “We are seeing people come in who are looking for something other than the NRA. Who are sick of Trump,” he says.

Root of violence

After lunch, Wooten, Gardner, and I mosey over to the picnic tables at the Trap and Skeet Range. The range dog greets us with a panting smile as he runs to the end of his leash. A bright orange clay pigeon flings into the air in the opposite direction as the shooter fires, breaking the target into pieces that scatter, joining the other bits of clay already littering the ground. Gun control, Gardner says, is an issue that Democratic politicians use to prove they’re liberal. It’s a false indicator, he adds, pointing out that U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) is a great example of the sleightof-hand that politicians use to prove their partisanship. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) gave her a 73 percent in its Congressional Scorecard on votes between January 2017 and May 2018. “She’s really not that liberal,” he says. “Rather than saying, ‘Oh, let’s raise the minimum wage,’ or, ‘Oh, let’s get universal health care,’ it’s, ‘Oh, let’s get gun control.’” The gun control laws that elected officials such as


Feinstein advocate for may make some people feel better about themselves, but that legislation doesn’t actually do anything to address the deeper issue, Gardner argues. “Are gun homicides a symptom or a problem?” he asks. “Our view would be that it’s symptomatic of other problems.” If you had a living wage, if you had access to mental health care, it could change the levels of violence in the country, he says. The club focuses on something it calls “root cause mitigation,” which basically means that rather than looking at the symptoms of violence, such as gun deaths, solutions should be based on addressing the root causes of that violence. He uses the nation’s suicide rate as an example. The

percent of gun homicides, Gardner says. “The problem isn’t the existence of the rifles, it’s about what’s around the people who are around the rifles,” he says of perpetrators of mass-shootings. “Banning assault rifles doesn’t make sense.” Banning assault rifles could maybe prevent another Parkland or Las Vegas, he says, but what about all of the other deaths by firearms. It’s not the guns, he argues. It’s whatever is driving that violence. “The solutions to these problems are hard,” Gardner says. “There is no magic wand.”

suicide rate in the U.S. has increased by 33 percent since 1999. Of the nearly 40,000 people who died from gun-related injuries in the U.S. in 2017, 60 percent were suicides, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Almost 24,000 suicides in 2017 used a gun, but that number accounts for only half of the suicides in 2017. In total, there were a little more than 47,000 suicides in 2017, according to the CDC. “When I look at that, it tells me that we have a suicide problem,” Gardner says. And when he looks at homicide statistics, he sees that a majority of the murders involving firearms aren’t committed by long guns such as the assault-style weapons banned in California; Connecticut; Washington, D.C.; Hawaii; Maryland; Massachusetts; and New Jersey. Of the more than 15,000 murders reported to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Statistics in 2017, almost 11,000 involved firearms. A little more than 7,000 of those homicides were committed with a handgun, 400 with rifles, and 260 with shotguns. In the remaining 3,200 murders related to a firearm, the type of gun is unknown. According to the FBI statistics, long guns (rifles)— which include the assault-style firearms that mass shootings have made famous—make up way less than 1

The ACLU came out against AB 61, saying that it poses “a significant threat to civil liberties by expanding the authorization to seek ex parte orders,” according to a Sept. 5, 2019, Assembly Floor Analysis. “An ex parte order means the person subject to the restraining order is not informed of the court proceeding and therefore has no opportunity to contest the allegations,” the ACLU stated. “We support the efforts to prevent gun violence, but we must balance that important goal with protection of civil liberties so we do not sacrifice one in an attempt to accomplish the other.” “Ping. ping. ping.” Metal targets move, one after the other, about 20 yards in front of me.

PWR! move A new physical therapy practice recently opened in San Luis Obispo, and in addition to touting a 48-hour appointment guarantee, it’s offering affordable twice-a-week classes for the underserved Parkinson’s community. Partners Dr. Kristen Carless and Dr. Dave Svetich co-founded Precision Physical Therapy in July of this year, opening on Tank Farm Road. Their practice specializes in orthopedic physical therapy, from rehab treatment to preventative care. But Precision also extends its physical therapy services to a community that’s often lacking them. Every Tuesday and Thursday, from noon to 1 p.m., Carless hosts an exercise class dedicated to helping locals suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Carless is a certified Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR) therapist, having previously worked with patients of Central Coast Home Health. “I got pretty involved in the Parkinson’s community through that,” Carless said. “I saw a huge lack of resources for our individuals with Parkinson’s disease.” Parkinson’s is a progressive disease, a disorder of the nervous system that impacts movement. Carless explained that consistent exercise is critical for those who have it, to help slow its progression in combination with medication. “It’s kind of a big deal,” she said. “What the research shows is a combination of medicine and exercise helps slow the progression.” Called PWR! Moves, the classes provide a “flexible and functional exercise plan” for each pupil, with a “focus on posture and high effort, meant to assist in mobility.” “You want that high-intensity exercise,” Carless explained. “It just gets them stronger, better posture, and better quality of movement. “It’s just a good workout,” she continued, adding with a laugh, “I do it myself and get really sore.” The classes are open to anyone in the Parkinson’s community, as well as their family members and friends. Each hour class is $15 per person or $20 for two people. Carless noted that it’s important for Parkinson’s patients to engage in exercise regularly, not just occasionally.

“It’s not really enough to do it once a month,” she said. “It’s something that needs to be consistently happening twice a week.” Carless and Svetich bring a combined 37 years of practicing experience to Precision Physical Therapy. As a policy, they decided to adopt a 48-hour guarantee—promising patients an appointment within 48 hours of their first call. “Typically what we were finding in SLO and in the Central Coast in general is there’s quite a long waitlist to get into other facilities,” Carless said. “We really thought that was a detriment to our population. If someone needs surgery and needs to be seen, they probably shouldn’t be waiting for three weeks.” The business’s grand opening event is slated for Nov. 21, which will act as a fundraiser for local nonprofits and sports teams. “It’s a fun atmosphere,” Carless said about her startup. “We like to help people get better.” For more information on Precision Physical Therapy and its PWR classes, reach them by phone at (805) 439-3900.

Fast facts

• Community members collectively donated more than $41,000 to the 5Cities Homeless Coalition (5CHC) as part of its annual Empty Bowls Community Luncheon in October. The event included dozens of local businesses and nonprofits as contributors and sponsors. The donations assist 5CHC in its mission to fight homelessness in SLO County. • Coastal Valley Academy, a residential treatment program in San Luis Obispo County Juvenile Hall, recently received a 2019 Challenge Award by the California State Association of Counties for its “innovative and regional approach.” The academy, which combines the intensive treatment of a group home with the structure of a camp program, has reduced first-time group home placements by 91 percent and reduced the risk of recidivism by 44 percent, according to the county.

Opinion Dear Gov. Gavin Newsom

What is your response to out of control fire caused by global warming? It is to allow closure of our largest carbon-free generator, Diablo Canyon Power Plant. We see your support of more burning of more fossil fuel—natural gas. We see no protection of the people, even in this climate emergency. Diablo Canyon has a desalination plant that can be expanded to send fresh water to communities. In fact, a project to do just that was underway when this public utility announced Diablo’s closure. You pose as a green leader. But green talk does not help us. The people of California demand action. Keep Diablo Canyon open and build many more atom fission plants to give the people clean desalinated water and clean electricity at the same time. Stop fossil fuel fracking and stop giving us wind and solar that costs billions yet produces so little electricity and needs natural gas backup, since it works so little of the day. Be honest on climate and on the energy type that can save the planet. William Gloege Santa Maria

Grover Beach’s communication breakdown

It all started about a year ago when we learned that SLO County and the city of Grover Beach planned to allow for the purchase and redevelopment of Hillside Community Church into a homeless center. It seemed like an

HODIN

admirable venture on the surface, one that would align with the state’s mandate to develop affordable housing. The problem is that Grover Beach residents who live nearby were never informed about the plan or given an opportunity to provide input. Furthermore, the project location was out of place, in the center of a middle-class neighborhood surrounded by residential homes. If we’d only been afforded an opportunity to discuss the plan ahead of time, other more practical locations could have been considered and identified. This project was put on hold pending litigation over title ownership and other problems. That could all have been avoided if the lines of communication were flowing. Earlier this year, much to our chagrin, Grover Beach planned to reconfigure the Newport Avenue corridor with bike lanes, asphalt berms, restrictive parking, and 25 percent driving lane reduction, mostly in an effort to reduce street maintenance costs. The final design cost taxpayers $300,000 more than the design recommended by city staff. Again, local residents who live on Newport Avenue weren’t adequately informed of the city’s final reconfiguration plan nor were we able to provide input or feedback, invaluable for successful projects. So, for a second time, we fought back, challenged the city and convinced them to remove the berms and modify the project. To the mayor and Grover Beach City Council: Do you see a problematic pattern here? Are we lost in translation? How about next time we all meet to discuss future projects affecting our city.

California’s green energy future

My head nearly exploded reading the op-ed “California’s green energy scam” (Oct. 24). Like many letters opposing community choice energy, it has some correct information and adds in some incorrect information—and lets the imagination run wild. If I understand the commentary, somehow if PG&E doesn’t buy the energy we receive, we are going to become Venezuela or Cuba because it is a slippery slope when government gets in the energy business. But didn’t the government create the Tennessee Valley Authority to generate energy in 1933? Bonneville Power in 1939? If these giant public corporations didn’t make us communists, I am pretty sure having a government agency buy the energy PG&E delivers to the Central Coast isn’t going to do it. I have lived in San Luis Obispo for almost 10 years. PG&E has raised their rates seemingly every year. Next year will be Monterey Bay Community Power’s (MBCP) third year providing energy to customers, and they have reduced the cost of energy each year. MBCP started by purchasing low-cost, carbon-free hydro, solar, and wind from sources in California and the Northwest. All the generation facilities are tied to our grid as California is part of the Western Energy Coordinating Council (WECC) grid. With this strategy, MBCP was able to build financial reserves and fund programs that reduce energy costs and carbon emissions while promoting local resiliency. Plus MBCP matched PG&E rates and then was able to provide their customers rebates starting at 3 percent, which was increased to 5 percent last year and will be 7 percent starting in

Letters January when the cities of SLO and Morro Bay begin receiving energy from MBCP. In 2021, MBCP is projected to achieve its financial reserve target of $175 million, and more funds can be allocated to customer savings. So when four other SLO County cities begin receiving energy from MBCP, customer savings could be dramatically higher. Double? MBCP is contracting for new renewable energy projects. Last year, MBCP signed long-term contracts for two solarplus-storage projects and a wind farm. Currently MBCP is working on two more solar-plus-storage projects and two geothermal projects. When these renewable energy projects are online, they will be producing more than 40 percent of the energy MBCP provides its customers. The future of the energy supplied to the Central Coast seems to be in good hands: lower energy costs and new renewable generating facilities. Residents of the cities of SLO and Morro Bay will be receiving their first notice about MBCP in November. The best thing is that if you want carbon-free energy and to save money compared to PG&E, all you have to do is nothing. John Smigelski San Luis Obispo

A Halloween fright

It must be Halloween. John Texeira (“California’s green energy scam,” Oct. 24) is trying to scare us with that Government Socialism Monster hiding behind the solar panel you’re contemplating buying. In response: 1. Re-opening Diablo Canyon Power Plant will not save California from wildfires started by PG&E equipment. LETTERS continued page 16

Opinion LETTERS from page 15

Its electricity would still need to be transported over hill and dale, along unmaintained PG&E wires and transmitters, which are causing the fires. Shutting up the environmentalists will not cause PG&E to spend the money to cut what’s growing under its power lines. Despite former Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto of SB 1463 (which you may be referring to), the Public Utilities Commission never stopped prioritizing lands susceptible to wildfire. 2. PG&E is a privately owned corporation that is also essentially a monopoly. Its primary responsibility is to turn a profit for its shareholders, and (according to The Wall Street Journal) one way it does this is by cutting expenses related to the maintenance of its equipment. Capitalistic competition would do it good. Perhaps Monterey Bay Community Power can offer that. 3. I’m a customer. I don’t like PG&E, and I especially hate that my power was off for 48 hours because of the danger of its equipment causing fires. But I can’t go to the other power company down the street, which may have safer equipment, because there is no other power company in my area. With no competition, why should PG&E spend money on equipment maintenance when that money could go into the shareholders’ and executives’ pockets? 4. Texeira is wrong about solar. The electricity generated by solar panels doesn’t go right to the grid. Solar panels power your individual home. Any excess electricity is sold back to the grid. The idea is perfectly capitalistic. People make electricity and they sell what they make. He’s right. It’s a big investment, and it would require buying electricity off the grid when the solar panels don’t make enough. But it’s not socialism. In fact, it would provide much needed competition for PG&E, allowing customers to tell PG&E to take a hike. 5. I wish I had an option to use Monterey Bay Community Power instead of PG&E, or “Acme Power,” or anything but PG&E. But in my area, there is no other option. No competition. PG&E has been dragged kicking and screaming to spend money to cut undergrowth, to inspect its lines, and to repair them. But too little, too late. Meanwhile, people die and homes and businesses are destroyed. PG&E’s shareholders and executives are laughing all the way to the bank. Oh, until the stock tanked. I hope they unloaded it at the right time. Happy Halloween. Sharon Reinbott Oakland

Dear neighbors

The debate over community choice energy (CCE) continues. There seems to be a lot of confusion due to the fact that there are some serious untruths floating around as to the alleged benefits of community choice. Some of the more flagrant departures from reality are: • Sustainability—a significant increase in renewable energy generation and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. This is false. Last year renewables produced less than 30 percent of the power consumed in California (California Independent System Operator, aka CAISO), and even that includes a few percent for burning biomass. This year,

Letters This Week’s Online Poll VOTE AT WWW.NEWTIMESSLO.COM

What do you think of designing a program specifically for women veterans? 44% It’s great! There aren’t many femalefocused programs. 39% Veterans Affairs should be enough for both men and women. 10% It’s great, but where’s the funding coming from? 7%

Shouldn’t there be a program specifically for men, too? 41 Votes

they will once again produce around 30 percent of the power consumed. Next year, they will likely produce around 30 percent of power consumed. Solar capacity is maxing out, indicated by a steep increase in curtailment, or power oversupply that has declined because there is insufficient demand when it is produced. Therefore, further investment will do little or nothing to increase renewable production and further reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. • Economics—competitive and stable rates. CCEs also help support the local economy through jobs creation and local power development. This is also false: Wind and solar have been subsidized, which is far from competitive and has increased rates. Without subsidies, they could not compete with natural gas, as long as the fracking boom continues. This year the increase in solar capacity has been negligible compared to an average of 15 percent per year before, mainly because renewable investors are no dummies and they know that solar is maxing out. So, what new jobs? Besides, wind and solar only produce part of the time, so no matter how “cheap” they are, something else has to produce most of the power consumed, and that’s what will set the rates. • Customer choice—competition and choice in the local electricity market, providing ratepayers with options about their power supplier and level of clean energy they wish to support. Again, false: Customers receive the same old power as everyone else. Once the electricity is on the grid, who the hell knows where the damn electrons came from. Community choice only gives you the right to pay more to claim that your power is renewable, for what that is worth, which is nothing. Mark Henry San Luis Obispo

Dignity Health isn’t what it purports to be

Dignity Health: “Our values define how we carry out the mission.” Help me understand how Dignity Health can advertise “humankindness” and the “Beyond Health” fundraising campaign, then quietly begin laying off employees fundamental to quality patient care. System leaders said Dignity’s merger with Catholic Health Initiatives would be a positive move and not to worry. Now, due to that “realignment,” not only are some staff being laid off, local positions are being eliminated altogether. Help me to understand how patient

What is the benefit to patients as top executives (who have made the decision to pursue this merger) continue receiving their exorbitant, multi-million dollar salaries with six- and seven-figure bonuses even as patient care is compromised by their greed. The employees in the trenches (the remaining dedicated, hardworking clinical and ancillary staff) are now expected to pick up the additional workload of their laid-off peers and embrace the extra work that expansion, more patient beds, and new service lines bring. Where is the ethics in that? “Humankindness?” Call it what it is. A sham. Sally Twiford Atascadero

Infuriated The PG&E power blackouts are immoral. This insane practice of shutting off power because there “might” be an

incident is the same as if the water agencies decided to turn off your water supply for a week because there “might” be a Legionnaires’ or Cryptosporidium outbreak. No showers or flushing toilets for a week. This scenario would never be allowed. PG&E states that folks should accept this as the “new normal” for California. I’m calling BS on their decision-making. California regulators need to declare this practice illegal ASAP. Charles Berna Santa Margarita

L

iving in California today is like living in an “Alice in Wonderland” experience. It’s surreal: What was once deemed absurd is becoming the norm. We live in a state that once was the envy of the nation, an economic powerhouse that was the land of opportunity for 150 years, starting with the 19th century Gold Rush, culminating in the post WWII economic boom. California was the American dream as portrayed in multiple TV shows of the perfect family living in a virtual paradise of prosperity and a climate to be envied by all. More than once in phone calls with relatives back East, they would ask me what the weather was like. I was often embarrassed to say 75 degrees and sunny as I knew their weather was near 0 degrees with icy streets and heavy snow burying their car in the driveway. What has changed? Not the weather: It’s pretty much the same as it’s always been, hysteria notwithstanding that doom is imminent. What has changed is the political climate with political extremes posing the greatest threat to what was once the greatest state and economy in the nation. The education system here was second to none with various ladders of opportunity for even the poorest of the poor. My Eastern cousins needed many thousands of dollars a year to attend any college. California had the community college system and virtually no tuition, just administrative fees for the first two years. With an associate degree, a student of modest means didn’t have to incur massive debt to finish a degree at a state university. That has all changed, although it still offers opportunities not available in most states. Sadly, the education system leading to college has virtually collapsed with American College Testing (ACT) showing that the current crop of California students are the worst prepared for college of any group in the last 15 years. This is the first group to cycle through the state’s Common Core curriculum. Across the board, academic rigor is being replaced by mountains of bureaucratic mandates upon teachers and social engineering requirements that fail to prepare California students for life outside a classroom, setting California students up for failure at unprecedented rates. The latest absurdity being pandered in the “woke” community is that math is racist. Note to the brain-dead: Math doesn’t care who or what you are; it just is, and it doesn’t change. California highways once led the nation in engineering innovation and quality. Today we drive on roads built more than 60 years ago for a population less than half of today’s 40 million. Citizens recently voted to tax themselves for new road construction only to see the Legislature divert the money for other pet projects, especially for expensive, underused urban mass transit or a high-

speed train located in the desert, miles from any major city. If this system was a freight train to free up coastal lines for passenger rail, it might make a little sense, but the governor and Legislature are determined to keep pouring money into a rail system likely to never generate enough riders to pencil out. Ever-increasing gas taxes, ostensibly for road repairs and improvements, are continuously diverted to bike lanes with not one additional vehicle lane added to an overcrowded highway system. Have you noticed the increase in traffic and especially heavy trucks on the 101 in SLO County? We should have three lanes from San Miguel to Santa Maria, not to mention fixing “Blood Alley” at the Highway 46/41 interchange near Shandon, which continues to kill motorists. The governor “stole” the allocated funds for the Blood Alley upgrades last month. We once had an excellent health care system or at least a humane one. Last month, California’s Medi-Cal began dumping severely disabled patients out of the nursing and care facilities in this county as a cost-cutting measure. When you have a government-run health care system, the first people to suffer are the most vulnerable without an advocate. Rationing is the norm when government over-promises. Seniors are also left vulnerable, especially in nursing homes when the power shutoff program blacked out millions of homes and businesses. Gov. Gavin Newsom laughed when the Public Power Safety Shutoff program was announced, saying, “It’s a great idea … unless you’re affected.” He’s not so cavalier now as it hit his home base repeatedly last month during major wildfires. Seniors, however, were left in the dark— they tumbled down stairs and were left terrified and helpless in care facilities unable to provide backup power for more than a few hours during blackouts that lasted for days. As if we’ve never had wildfires before, the most vulnerable are paying the price for decades of government wildland mismanagement and indifference to personal and economic losses caused by an unnecessary power shutdown program. When seniors were left to drown during Eastern hurricanes, the nation was outraged, and care providers were prosecuted. The power blackouts were approved by the governor and his utility commission appointees. He and his Democratic colleagues, who have a supermajority in the Legislature, own this though they decline responsibility. The “Queen of Hearts” and her minions rule in Sacramento. The question is, will you hold them accountable? Δ Al Fonzi had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars. Send comments through the editor at clanham@newtimesslo.com.


Opinion Red-legged frog to the rescue!

I

f Morro Bay could build its new wastewater treatment facility out of the angry emails I got after last discussing attempts by grassroots organizations Citizens for Affordable Living (CAL) and Home Front Environmental Justice (HFEJ) to block the project, it could already be built (“Water wars!” Oct. 24). These grassrooters sure are persnickety! They really don’t like the selected location off South Bay Boulevard, the $126 million cost, or my argument that their attempts to thwart the project are only going to make it cost more. Now their hopes and dreams—if their hopes and dreams were to make the project cost more—have come true! The U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife is conducting another review of the future facility site and its potential impacts on the California red-legged frog. Before we get too deep in the weeds, has anyone investigated whether members of CAL and HFEJ might have ordered a few red-legged frogs on the black market and serendipitously dropped them onto the new sewer plant site? Were the blackmarketeers out of western snowy plovers, California tiger salamanders, and Morro Bay kangaroo rats? Maybe they’re on back order. Keep your eyes peeled, Fish and Wildlife! Despite CAL and HFEJ’s desire to squash Morro Bay’s plans, it appears these rare wee red-pantalooned kermits will only be delaying the already

expensive project for a few weeks or months before it goes ahead as planned. “It will mean delaying the project start for several weeks, up to several months, depending on how long the review takes,” Morro Bay City Manager Scott Collins told New Times. Interestingly, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that the project “may affect, but not likely … adversely impact” the froggies, and the city claimed there hasn’t been a documented red-legged frog occurrence within a square mile of the South Bay Boulevard site since 1996. Hey look! Is that an unarmored threespine stickleback, also known by its scientific name Gasterosteus aculeatus williamsoni? No? OK, never mind. Carry on. Speaking of Juvenalia politica embarrasius, aka the SLO County Board of Supervisors, they’re still fighting over the California State Board of Food and Agriculture letter chiding the county for excluding local ag interests like the Estrella-El Pomar-Creston (EPC) Water District from a seat at the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) table. So. Many. Acronyms! At their Nov. 5 meeting—which was attended by teenage students from the Coastal Valley Academy program who were sitting in the front row waiting for an award (for sitting through this embarrassing meeting?)—the Board of Supes acted like a bunch of toddlers as they fought over whether to authorize

The Shredder

County Administrative Officer Wade Horton to send a response letter saying the state’s letter was no fair, wah-wah! Um, hey adults! There are kids here watching you! You’re supposed to be our government representatives but you sound like a gaggle of partisan hacks squabbling over politics, not policy. Let’s break it down: conservative 1st District Supe John Peschong and 5th District Supe Debbie Arnold are defending their work on SGMA, saying their outreach to local ag was beyond sufficient so the county should write a letter telling the state it’s mean and wrong. Predictably, liberal 2nd District Supe Bruce Gibson and 3rd District Supe Adam Hill argued that the response letter was unwarranted. “I’m not in support. This letter is not necessary. [The Board of Food and Agriculture] did not ask for a response,” Gibson said, going on to praise county staff and take an ugly shot at Peschong and Arnold, blaming them for a “frankly weak” groundwater sustainability plan. “Any weakness in that plan is not the fault of our staff; that fault lies directly with the elected officials installed as decision makers in that process.” Take that, John and Debbie! Ka-pow! Naturally, Hill piled on: “[The SGMA process] has been shrouded in conspiricism and favoritism, and throughout this process from the very beginning we’ve

seen … attempts to not just continue to exclude [ag interests], but undermine the backstop to ensure state compliance. ... This is done all to essentially aid and abet conspiricism.” Dear Coastal Valley Academy students, sorry you had to see the ugly machinations of petty local government squabbling so close up! I hope you all covered your ears when conservative 4th District Supe Lynn Compton chimed in with her two-cents. “What this is all about is an election going on and you have two supervisors [Gibson and Hill, in case you’re confused!] that are aiding and abetting to try to dislodge one supervisor [Arnold, in case you’re still confused!] and that’s all that this is about,” Compton said. Yes, this is local government at work. This is the new, kinder and gentler Board of Supervisors, and this is who’s in charge of managing the county’s affairs. “We listened to those people [local ag interests],” Compton screeched. “It’s beyond ridiculous!” “I don’t cut people off at these meetings,” Peschong howled. “We’ve done a great job,” Arnold seethed. “That was a fun filibuster,” Hill dripped sarcastically. “Supervisor Compton’s reading [of the state’s letter] proved my point precisely,” Gibson spat. Yay local government! Δ The Shredder would roll its eyes if it had any. Send ideas and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

The Hearst Cancer Resource Center at French Hospital Medical Center Serving those touched by cancer and their families on the Central Coast During National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and all year, we are here with an array of complimentary services and resources to support you along your journey. It all began after Tom Vendegna, MD was diagnosed with cancer in 2003. He realized then that San Luis Obispo did not offer a comprehensive resource center to support the challenges that cancer patients face. So he approached French Hospital to create one. The services we offer include: •

Support services to help cope with a diagnosis and treatment.

Access to resources and education to provide cancer-related information.

Nurse Navigators to guide and support those going through a cancer diagnosis. Spanish-speaking navigators are available as well.

• A variety of classes and events to help heal and connect with others in our community. • The Beauty and You program and Appearance Center provides hands-on makeup, skincare and wig techniques to help manage appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

The HCRC is made possible by French Hospital Medical Center along with generous gifts from members of the Hearst family and Hearst Foundation, as well as donations from other community members.

Dr. Andrew Peterson is the kind of guy who’s always ready to help out someone in need.

Dr. Peterson had insurance, but a recent flood took out his house and savings. Come on down and enjoy some great music and help out a great guy.

Shows Myra Bruhl take place Wednesday (Melinda Parrett), a through Saturday at 7 p.m., and Saturday married couple who and Sunday at 2 p.m. enjoy a comfortable For tickets and more lifestyle in info, visit slorep.org. Westport, Connecticut. While Sidney once earned a pretty penny as a successful playwright, today he finds himself in a creative slump. Now, the Bruhls are forced to subsist off Myra’s rapidly dwindling wealth, much to the dismay of once-breadwinner Sidney’s apparent male fragility. Though he has been dry of any new theatrical inspiration for a while, Sidney continues to conduct seminars for novice playwright hopefuls in an effort to maintain some semblance of justification for his still massive ego. The play begins with Sidney telling Myra about a fantastic script that he has received in the mail from his former seminar student, Clifford Anderson (Cameron Parker), who just happens to be writing in complete solitude while housesitting in the nearby town of Milford. Clifford’s play is a comedy thriller called Deathtrap, which begins the first of a number of meta layers that this playwithin-a-play contrives. Sidney angrily voices to Myra how he is “green with envy” over his novice student having written something so brilliant— especially in juxtaposition to his own creative dry spell. Sidney begins jesting at the prospect of inviting Clifford to come

workshop the play at the Bruhl’s home, with the secret intent of killing Clifford and claiming the near-flawless draft as his own. Much to Myra’s horror, the joke begins fleshing out into a real-life murder plot. Brusasco gives a convincing portrayal of this once successful writer driven mad by self-imposed expectations and a teetering ego, while Parrett’s hilariously spot-on retorts and facial expressions as Myra highlight just how delusional her husband has become. Meanwhile, Parker captures Clifford’s youthful naivety with ease, making it clear that his character will soon become the victim of Sidney’s farfetched fantasies. Between Sidney and Myra’s superlative dialogue, it’s difficult for the audience not to imagine all the ways the murder plan might be executed: The walls of the Bruhl’s home are adorned with practically every weapon imaginable. If you’ve heard of Chekhov’s gun, then this is Ira Levin’s arsenal. At this point, the plot turns begin to feel foreseeable: Sidney will surely invite Clifford to his home, murder him, take the script as his own, and he and Myra will enjoy renewed success and riches. All the while, a psychic character named Helga—with a superb performance by Zoia N. Wiseman—gives interspersed predictions that indeed keep coming true, leading the audience to believe we’ve got it all figured out. We watch as Sidney chokes Clifford to death, disposes of his body, and revels in his soon-to-be success. As far as murder scenes go, this one is exceedingly easy on the heartrate. After all, we’ve seen it coming since the curtains were first drawn. But what happens next is certain to shock even the most alert and suspicious of audience members. As SLO Rep’s Deathtrap director Kevin Harris writes, “In spite of [Levin’s] gross transparency, he still manages to surprise the hell out of us.” Δ Arts Writer Malea Martin is unraveling Deathtrap’s meta storyline.

Twisty neo-noir! W riter-director Edward Norton (Keeping the Faith) helms this 1950s-period crime drama based on Jonathan Lethem’s novel about Tourette Syndrome-afflicted private detective Lionel “Brooklyn” Essrog, who works to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). (144 min.) Glen If you’re in the mood for a “good old-fashioned” neo-noir in the style of Chinatown, this is the film for you. The film opens with Lionel and his colleague, Gilbert Coney (Ethan Suplee), staking out an operation their boss, Frank Minna, has kept them in the dark about. They don’t know what Frank’s into, but they know that depending on his signal, they need to cover him or follow him in their car. It’s a taunt opening set-up and one that goes quickly wrong as Frank is murdered right before their eyes. Who did it and why is what the rest of the film is all about. We’re in the dark as much as Lionel is, and we’re along for the ride as he slowly pieces together the mystery, which seems to center on Laura Rose (Gugu MbathaRaw), an assistant to low-income housing advocate Gabby Horowitz (Cherry Jones), who’s fighting the powers that be in New York City, who have been evicting black and brown residents and gentrifying their neighborhoods, leaving the former residents with nowhere to go but out. Who’s really pulling the strings behind the city redevelopment? It’s certainly not the newly elected puppet mayor (Peter Gray Lewis). Instead, it’s Frank Moses (Alec Baldwin), an appointed commissioner who really wields the power. So why did Moses

come down on Minna? He’s afraid of a file Minna had on him, but what is it about? Maybe it’s about Moses’ brother, Paul, a brilliant electrical engineer who’s trying to upgrade the electrical grid, or maybe it’s about nightclub owner Billy Rose (Robert Wisdom), who’s somehow related to Laura Rose, who lives above his club. Obviously, this is a story with a lot of moving parts, but Norton, directing himself, does a fantastic job of keeping it mysterious but not muddled. Anna I found Motherless Brooklyn to be a gripping mystery and a well-crafted character study for Norton. Lionel, with his bursts of foul language and unyielding loyalty to his friend Frank, is totally endearing and the quest he’s on is a genuine series of twists and turns. Lionel was raised in a Catholic school for boys (aka an orphanage) along with his lifelong friends Tony (Bobby Cannavale), Danny (Dallas Roberts), and Gil. All four boys were taken under Frank’s wing and they all operate under him in a car service/private eye operation. Lionel’s top-notch memory is a huge asset to the business and his unstoppable devotion to Frank means he’ll never leave his mentor’s side—even after Frank’s death. It happens early on in the film, so most of the time we spend is alongside Lionel THE BETTER MAN Power hungry builder Frank Moses (Alec Baldwin, left) will stop at nothing to transform New York City, but P.I. Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton) is slowly uncovering Moses’ secret, leading to a showdown.

as he works the investigation and seeds a blooming relationship with Laura. There’s no denying that Norton is a phenomenal actor and with Motherless Brooklyn he proves his direction is also compelling. This movie just looks and sounds cool. Glen The attention to detail really transports viewers to 1950s-era New York, with the cars, storefronts, and clothes of the era. The performances are all top-notch as well. Norton has proved adept at playing characters with peculiar ticks, from his stuttering southerner Aaron Sampler/“Roy” in Primal Fear (1996) to his turn as fake cerebral palsy sufferer, Jack Teller, in The Score (2001). He’s terrific as Lionel, who’s ever apologetic about his outbursts in an era that hadn’t yet found a name for Tourette Syndrome. Baldwin is all thick-necked menace as Moses, who’s disinterested in money and notoriety. He seeks raw power, the kind of power that will let you get away with anything. MbathaRaw also delivers as the sympathetic Laura, the woman at the center of the mystery. When Laura takes Lionel to Billy’s jazz nightclub, mostly filled with black patrons, the music sets Lionel’s affliction off, and soon he catches the eye of the band’s trumpet player (Michael Kenneth Williams, who’s fantastic here), who recognizes something special in Lionel’s ability to feel the music.

just a lot of talent up on the screen, and the mystery resolves in a very satisfying way … if you can keep up with it all. If you’re a mystery fan, like an engrossing character study, or enjoy film noir, Motherless Brooklyn ticks all the boxes. Anna Baldwin is impressively unlikeable as the powerful yet still power hungry commissioner; his seething all-or-nothing mentality doesn’t hide far below the surface. The connections between himself and Paul, Billie, and Laura are a winding mess that kept me guessing well into the almost two and a half hours the film spans. Arguably Motherless Brooklyn runs a little long—it could have been tightened up—but overall I didn’t mind the length. I was kept guessing and that meant I stayed engaged from beginning to end. The film is an adaptation of a novel by the same name by Jonathan Lethem, and while I haven’t read the book yet, this film made me want to. It’s a rich world—between some awesome costuming and recreating the New York of the 1950s, Motherless Brooklyn creates a world we are easily transported to. I hope Norton gets the directing bug again soon. I’d hate to wait another 19 years to see his directorial work on the big screen!

Pick

highlighting a historical figure, it’s a slightly dramatized but powerful film that tells the story of one woman’s determination for freedom and selfless work to share that freedom with others. It’s the first film to respectfully bring this African-American woman to life who we would otherwise only know from our school textbooks. The film opens up with Harriet—she was referred to then as Minty—lying in a field with her eyes closed. She’s having what she feels is a message from God. When Harriet was 13, an overseer threw a 2-pound weight at another slave that struck her instead. She suffered a severe head injury and had seizures the rest of her life—in her eyes, the seizures were messages from God. When her late master’s son, Gideon Brodess (Joe Alwyn), is left with his father’s debt, he mercilessly plans to sell Harriet and separate her from her family for money. Just as a man steps foot near the Brodess plantation to retrieve her for vending, she gets a “message” and knows she must run. This is when things get a little dicey and my hands get very sweaty, which happens several times during the film. Don’t get me wrong, I know Harriet Tubman’s story. I remember learning about the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad, but the scenes are intense. In order to shield her husband from danger, Harriet leaves him behind and travels 100 miles by foot without anything but the clothes on her back. When she finally makes it to Philadelphia with the prospect of a new free life and a new name, Harriet isn’t satisfied knowing that her friends and family are still enslaved. Ignoring the protests of antislavery activists William Still (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Marie Buchanon (Janelle Monáe), Harriet goes back to Maryland to retrieve her husband. John believed she didn’t make the journey and had remarried, but a devastated Harriett saves her siblings and

their wives instead. She single-handedly guides nine people to safety, a milestone that enlists her as a conductor of the Underground Railroad. Harriet becomes known as “Moses” among the people she liberates and often takes them right off the plantation. When Gideon finds out she’s behind the liberation movement, his distain for her grows, and he begins working with a black “slave catcher” in order bring her back to the plantation. Lemmons goes beyond the norm of portraying the true story of historical cruelty and good versus evil—it’s a straightforward story. Instead of just telling the audience about it, she subtly shows it on Harriet’s face and on the bodies of the enslaved. The violence in the film is somewhat restrained, the opposite of what’s seen in Steve McQueen’s Twelve Years a Slave, which I believe was purposefully done to engage a younger audience. Erivo creates an amazing depiction of Harriet by not just acting the part but bringing this tactful, swift, and courageous individual to life. (125 min.) —Karen Garcia

While the film as a whole was entertaining, it just lacked a flow in the story. Not to mention the fact that it’s predictable. There were too many side stories that of course somehow come together in the end. But I don’t blame Jolie for a second; her portrayal of the character, down to the deep villainous voice she uses, is amazing.

he internet loves Chuck Norris, and why not? He’s legendarily hairy and whenever he gets sweaty he looks like he’s covered in warm butter. He owns the classic tough guy look and embodies all the clichés of action stars. And he can kick really, really high. Various and sundry corners of the web are populated with a never-ending stream of memes that pay homage to his legend. One reads, “Death once had a near Chuck Norris experience.” Another, “Chuck Norris doesn’t turn on the shower, he just stares at it until it cries.” There’s something very silly about Norris and it’s entirely different from the sort of silliness of, say, Steven Seagal. One is funny because he doesn’t take himself too seriously and the other is hilarious precisely because he takes himself extremely seriously. But there’s a certain preternatural charm to Norris and within him, seemingly, an instinct for never buying into his on-screen persona. This is evident in the 1983 film Lone Wolf McQuade, in which Norris plays the titular

character J.J. McQuade, a clichéd tough guy loner who hates vegetables and loves beer. We meet Mr. McQuade in the obligatory BAMF (look it up, we keep it clean here, kids) opening. He rescues a handful of police from a violent, murderous horse thief wearing a vest and no shirt. He quickly subdues the bad guys by himself, fighting off Uzi wielding men with snap kicks and his perfectly manicured scruff. It’s an obvious setup, showing the audience that Norris is dangerous and unflappable in the face of violent criminals. The plot, of course, involves a highly dangerous arms dealer who is also supposed to be of ultimate male status. None of this, by itself, is funny in any kind of self-aware way. There are lots of action films with pretty much exactly the same elements. But the film gives the audience, at various times, a wink. Among the conspicuous shirtless scenes and the heavy-handed loner, drinker, tough-guy cop tropes are details that make fun of McQuade. For instance, he gets into a fight with his girlfriend after she throws his beer away and replaces it with vegetables and, after being buried alive, the first thing he asks for is beer. But the best and strangest moment of the film, the one that shows us how funny the director thinks this all is, appears in the first half of the movie. McQuade is in his office making phone calls about some smuggled firearms and the military base he’s called has him on hold. This is where he, inexplicably, begins drawing nipples on a photo. This, against the backdrop of the ultimate tough-

AAAHHHH! LOUIS? Tour guide James Papp shows attendees a photo of Ah Louis, a ChineseAmerican banker and businessman who lived in San Luis Obispo during the late 19th and early 20th century. The Ah Louis Store was home to a murder and probably should be haunted, Papp said, but it isn’t known to be. PHOTOS BY KASEY BUBNASH

Supernatural secrets James Papp shares his spookiest local paranormal stories on the Ghosts of San Luis Walking Tour

S

interest in the supernatural and $20— and that’s me. Mee Heng Low, it just so happens, is home to not one, but two creepy ghost stories. My group gathers around a longtime employee as she tells the terrifying tale of the haunted stapler— yes, a stapler—which inexplicably moves around the restaurant on its own accord. There’s “oo-ing” and “ah-ing” as the employee holds up the possessed office device, which seems to be well behaved at the moment, but everyone knows this is just the preview for the main event. Soon we’re off to the opposite corner of the room, where a mini fridge once held the supernatural cans of Mountain Dew in question. According to legend, Papp tells us, Mountain Dew has never been on the menu at Mee Heng Low, but an employee purchased some to cache away in the fridge for an elderly regular who constantly requested it. But the customer died before she was ever able to drink any of her favorite nuclear-green soda, Papp says, lantern

light shining eerily in his face. So there it sat, untouched. Then one day another customer asked for a cold hard glass of Mountain Dew. The waiters, Papp says, figured they might as well use up what stock they had. When one waiter went to grab a can, it was empty. The cans were all empty. They were still sealed; there weren’t any visible holes, but they were empty. Empty! Employees kept the spirit-suckled cans of Mountain Dew around for a while to show anyone interested, but Papp informs us that they were sadly recycled just before our tour. I wonder how San Luis Garbage Company handles paranormal materials. Mee Heng Low isn’t the only seemingly random location for a haunting in downtown SLO. Soon we’re on to Central Coast Surfboards, where ghouls allegedly roam the basement and the third floor of the building it’s in, the old Masonic Temple. We also stand outside of and peer into the occasional house, many of which are big and old and inherently very creepy.

an Luis Obispo’s oldest noodle house is haunted. But don’t worry, the spirit that supposedly haunts Mee Heng Low just wants some Mountain Dew. The sun is just setting as my tour group and I huddle into the decades-old building, where a few curious customers look up from their noodle bowls to inspect the commotion. I turn up the brightness on my electric lantern—a very fun accessory provided to attendees—as tour guide and historian James Papp leads us up the stairs to the very place where it all happened: the mysterious haunting of the Mountain Dew. This isn’t just any tour of downtown San Luis Obispo’s historic landmarks; it’s a ghost tour, a walkabout to the spookiest spots in our town that have served as settings for various apparitions, hauntings, and inexplicable occurrences—a collection of stories Papp has been gathering from the mouths of real residents for years. Papp gives two-hour tours (the next is coming up on Nov. 8) to anyone with an

See for yourself

In one, Papp said two former residents claim to have seen the opposite kinds of ghosts—some with only heads and arms and others with only legs. We stop by a number of spots that Papp says certainly should be haunted, like the History Center of San Luis Obispo County, which was once used as the city’s hanging grounds, or the intersection of Chorro and Buchon streets, a space that was used as a burial ground during the cholera epidemic. As far as anyone knows, Papp tells us, the bodies of roughly 70 Native Americans are still buried in that location. There’s also the now historic Ah Louis Store, where Eng Gon Ying Louis was shot and killed in the early 20th century by a burglar in her family’s six-room apartment situated above the store. As brutal as Eng Gon Ying’s murder was, Papp says there haven’t been any reported hauntings in the Ah Louis Store. Bummer! The tour is ending, and Papp asks us to share our own paranormal stories. It seems like everyone has something to tell—stories of haunted furniture, houses, and clairvoyant friends. So even though Halloween is over, watch your back. Ghosts aren’t seasonal. Δ

Food paradise Thomas Hill Organics keeps it fresh and fun with new executive chef and dessert bar

T

homas Hill Organics remains one of the first authentic farm-totable restaurants in SLO County and certainly ranks among the top restaurants in the nation for locally minded ethos—always true to its real, organic, local ingredients and communitysourced gourmet fare, always pushing the boundaries with food artistry and design. Executive Chef Libry Darusman recently joined the team at Thomas Hill. His staff was delighted with his ability to jump right in. The staff, many of whom have been with Thomas Hill for years (and one for a decade) were well-versed in explaining the subtleties of Darusman’s style. He is a master duster and sauce virtuoso: As he magically positions the organic, local ingredients on the plate, he finishes most dishes with the softest, most ethereal flakes of flavor. While some chefs finish with Himilayan salt, Darusman will compliment the dish with just a textural tease of its most delicious cousin, including the beautiful green snowflakes on top of the kale “kabbouleh.” The effect is gallery-worthy and delicious. Thomas Hill owner Debbie Thomas said she appreciates Darusman’s experience living and working around the world. Darusman was born in Indonesia and spent his early years living throughout Europe, exposing his culinary repertoire to French and German cultures.

Changing seasons

Thomas Hill Organics’ new Dessert Bar will be staffed in the evenings from 5 to 10 p.m. The restaurant is located in downtown Paso Robles, at 1313 Park St. For reservations or for more information, visit thomashillorganics.com or call (805) 226-5888.

“Chef Libry has extensive experience working in high-profile restaurants,” Thomas says, “but he also has a worldly palate and a willingness to get creative in the kitchen.” Darusman trained with the California Art Institute in Orange County, and continued his culinary training by working with chef Theo Schoenegger of Sinatra’s Restaurant in Las Vegas. He also worked alongside chef Mark Gold at Eva Restaurant in LA, but his most recent position was working as executive chef for Roomforty ultra-premium catering in LA and Orange County. Darusman’s citrus coriander vinaigrette perfectly married the finely chopped kale kabbouleh salad. Kabbouleh is kale plus tabbouleh, FYI. Thinly sliced grilled cauliflower was mixed in with puffed grains, seasonal veggies, and herb powder. The roasted baby beet salad is on every menu, so Christine Tweedie—our server and also the wine buyer for Thomas Hill—recommended trying it. Chunks of colorful baby beets, tossed in a light and elegant charred ginger vinaigrette, were accompanied with crumblings of PHOTO BY BETH GIUFFRE pumpkin seed granola and broken goat cheese. Garnished with dollops of golden beet gel and a mysterious dusting, it was divine. We got Darusman’s signature chicken and biscuits, which came layered on the plate, with crunchy, herbaceous fried chicken pieces, biscuits, and micro cabbage. What made this dish for me was the spicy orange remoulade. I asked to have some in jug form to take home, and Assistant Manager Cameron Cairney said I’m not the only one who’s made that request. The warm grain chicken salad is a popular lunch entree at Thomas Hill. A meal in itself, simply delicious bites of grilled herb chicken and warm barley top a sunchoke puree, greens, fennel, radishes, herbs, and heirloom cauliflower. I can’t forget the lemon garlic dressing that made the dish and really celebrates the root vegetable. Thomas Hill’s dinner menu holds even more gems: Sweet corn LUNCH FAVORITE One of the most popular ravioli in a beurre fondue. A vegan lunch dishes on the menu is the warm grain shepherd’s pie. A bone marrow chicken salad, served here with a lovely Thacher encrusted rib-eye. Working Holiday wine from Paso.

There’s also the Sunday brunch. You can get a stuffed French toast served with sweet cream cheese, farm fresh berries, vanilla whipped cream, and bacon. Or you could order a pork belly Benedict in a bearnaise sauce, with a poached egg on levain. The Dessert Bar in front, which just opened on Nov. 4, serves up a selection of treats crafted both in-house and by local purveyors, paired with local coffee, tea, beer, and wine. It will feature Darusman’s version of s’mores stuffed in a Mason jar, with brown butter graham cracker soil, dark chocolate mousse, and smoked marshmallow meringue. He had me at chocolate mousse, and watching him make this dish is extraordinary. Using a torch and a wooden round, he heats it up, opens the jar with a puff of steam, and the s’more is revealed! Angela’s Pastries, Leo Leo Gelato, and Negranti Creamery sheep’s milk ice cream will all make appearances. Cairney said there will also be Tres Leches cake. Adding to the experience are pairing recommendations, such as a Deschutes Black Butte Porter with the flourless chocolate torte or the Halter Ranch FLAVOR continued page 52

Joebella Coffee Roasters in Atascadero is so full of surprises. They can make pumpkins out of the foam atop of your pumpkin latte, and sometimes you’ll find chef Emilie’s apple turnovers made from Templeton Valley Organic Apples in their glass case (which you must eat for breakfast!). I have such a passion for their latest, however: chocolate-covered coffee beans! Joebella partnered with SLO’s Mama Ganache to create these delicate treats. Joebella’s organic, dark roasted Nicaragua beans are coated in organic dark chocolate and dusted with cocoa powder. Because chocolate and coffee are my favorite combinations of flavors to blend, I have to say, I’m doing the happy dance. Look for the adorable Mama Ganache Chocolates sticker on a darling gold striped bag. Joebella Coffee Roasters is located on 3168 El Camino Real, Atascadero. Hours are 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday through Friday, and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. One 4 ounce bag is $9.95 while supplies last. Δ Flavor writer Beth Giuffre is already stocking up on stocking stuffers. Send your favorite foodie gift ideas to bgiuffre@ newtimesslo.com.

Project Location: The project site is composed of approximately 116.8 acres located on three parcels (APN 067-241-030, -031, and 053-161-010) and is situated at the base of the Irish Hills Natural Reserve, with Los Osos Valley Road to the east and Calle Joaquin to the south. The project site is currently located within the County of San Luis Obispo, and within the City of San Luis Obispo Sphere of Influence. Project Description: The Froom Ranch Specific Plan (FRSP) provides a land use and development program with associated goals, policies, and development standards to guide future development within the Specific Plan area. The FRSP includes, but is not limited to: general site planning and development standards, design guidelines, designation of access and circulation elements, infrastructure and utility improvements, affordable and inclusionary housing requirements, and identification of public services. The FRSP proposes a mix of land use designations including residential (39.1 acres), retail commercial (3.1 acres), public facilities (park) (2.9 acres), and open space (59 acres), along with roadway, bicycle, and pedestrian circulation improvements. The proposed Project includes a request for a General Plan Amendment to allow development above the 150-foot elevation, which is currently prohibited by Land Use Element Policy 6.4.7(H), Hillside Planning Areas. Future development under the FRSP consists of two main components, the Villaggio Life Plan Community and Madonna Froom Ranch, which are anticipated to be constructed in phases. The Villaggio Life Plan Community (Villaggio) consists of a 70.4acre gated senior residential community (residents must be 60+ years of age), which would be located in the central and southern portions of the FRSP. Villaggio would provide up to 404 units of senior housing that would include independent and assisted living units, as well as health care facilities with 51 beds for memory care and skilled nursing. The Madonna Froom Ranch would consist of multifamily residential, retail commercial uses, and a public park within 39.3 acres of the northern and eastern portions of the FRSP area, providing up to 174 multi-family units and up to 100,000 sf of mixed commercial uses, including a potential 70,000-sf hotel and 30,000 sf of retail commercial. Improvements associated with the FRSP would include, but not be limited to, the realignment and restoration of Froom Creek, construction of a stormwater basin within a 7.1-acre easement adjacent to the 109.7-acre FRSP area, widening of Los Osos Valley Road, a new transit stop, and signalization of the Los Osos Valley Road and Auto Park Way intersection. It is estimated that the Project would require approximately 160,000 cubic yards (cy) of cut, 378,000 cy of fill, and 2,300 cy of rock/aggregate import. Identified Potential Environmental Impacts: Aesthetics and Visual Resources, Agricultural Resources, Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Biological Resources, Cultural and Tribal Cultural Resources, Geology and Soils, Hazards, Hazardous Materials, and Wildfire, Hydrology and Water Quality, Land Use and Planning, Noise, Population and Housing, Public Services and Recreation, Transportation and Traffic, Utilities and Energy Conservation, and Mineral Resources.

ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries psychologist James Hillman said we keep “our images and fantasies at arm’s length because they are so full of love.” They’re also quite flammable, he added. They are always on the verge of catching fire, metaphorically speaking. That’s why many people wrap their love-filled images and fantasies in metaphorical asbestos: to prevent them from igniting a blaze in their psyches. In my astrological opinion, you Aries folks always have a mandate to use less asbestos than all the other signs—even none at all. That’s even truer than usual right now. Keep your images and fantasies extra close and raw and wild.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran blogger Ana-Sofia Cardelle was asked, “What is your signature perfume?” She said she hadn’t found one. But then she described how she would like to smell: “somewhere between fresh and earthy: cinnamon and honey, a rose garden, saltwater baked in the sun.” The coming days will be an excellent time to indulge in your own fantasies about the special fragrance you’d like to emanate. Moreover, I bet you’ll be energized by pinpointing a host of qualities you would like to serve as cornerstones of your identity: traits that embody and express your uniqueness.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

(April 20-May 20): Poet James Merrill was ecstatic when he learned the Greek language. According to his biographer, he felt he could articulate his needs “with more force and clarity, with greater simplicity and less self-consciousness, than he ever could in his own language.” He concluded, “Freedom to be oneself is all very well; the greater freedom is not to be oneself.” Personally, I think that’s an exaggeration. I believe the freedom to be yourself is very, very important. But for you in the coming weeks, Taurus, the freedom to not be yourself could indeed be quite liberating. What might you do to stretch your capacities beyond what you’ve assumed is true about you? Are you willing to rebel against and transcend your previous self-conceptions?

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Studies suggest that on average each of us has a social network of about 250 people, of whom 120 we regard as a closer group of friendly acquaintances. But most of us have no more than 20 folks we trust, and only two or three whom we regard as confidants. I suspect that these numbers will be in flux for you during the next 12 months, Scorpio. I bet you’ll make more new friends than usual, and will also expand your inner circle. On the other hand, I expect that some people who are now in your sphere will depart. Net result: stronger alliances and more collaboration.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Musician Brian Eno made a deck of oracular cards called Oblique Strategies. Each card has a suggestion designed to trigger creative thinking about a project or process you’re working on. You Geminis might find it useful to call on Oblique Strategies right now, since you’re navigating your way through a phase of adjustment and rearrangement. The card I drew for you is “Honor thy error as hidden intention.” Here’s how I interpet it: An apparent lapse or misstep will actually be the result of your deeper mind guiding you to take a fruitful detour.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): We devote a lot of energy to wishing and hoping about the meaningful joys we’d love to bring into our lives. And yet few of us have been trained in the best strategies for manifesting our wishes and hopes. That’s the bad news. The good news is that now is a favorable time for you to upgrade your skills at getting what you want. With that in mind, I present you with the simple but potent wisdom of author Maya Angelou: “Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it.” To flesh that out, I’ll add: Formulate a precise statement describing your heart’s yearning, and then work hard to make yourself ready for its fulfillment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What are the key parts of your life— the sources and influences that enable you to be your most soulful self? I urge you to nourish them intensely during the next three weeks. Next question: What are the marginally important parts of your life—the activities and proclivities that aren’t essential for your long-term success and happiness? I urge you to corral all the energy you give to those marginally important things, and instead pour it into what’s most important. Now is a crucial time in the evolution of your relationship with your primal fuels, your indispensable resources, your sustaining foundations.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “When she spoke of beauty, he spoke of the fatty tissue supporting the epidermis,” wrote short story author Robert Musil. He was describing a conversation between a man and woman who were on different wavelengths. “When she mentioned love,” Musil continued, “he responded with the statistical curve that indicates the rise and fall in the annual birthrate.” Many of you Virgos have the flexibility to express yourself well on both of those wavelengths. But in the coming months, I hope you’ll emphasize the beauty and love wavelength rather than the fatty tissue and statistical curve wavelength. It’ll be an excellent strategy for getting the healing you need.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I blame and thank the Sagittarian part of me when I get brave and brazen enough to follow my strongest emotions where they want to lead me. I also blame and thank the Sagittarian part of me when I strip off my defense mechanisms and invite the world to regard my vulnerabilities as interesting and beautiful. I furthermore blame and thank the Sagittarian side of me on those occasions when I run 3 miles down the beach at dawn, hoping to thereby jolt loose the secrets I’ve been concealing from myself. I suspect the coming weeks will be a favorable time to blame and thank the Sagittarian part of you for similar experiences.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Persian polymath Avicenna (980–1037) wrote 450 books on many topics, including medicine, philosophy, astronomy, geography, mathematics, theology, and poetry. While young, he tried to study the Metaphysics of Aristotle, but had difficulty grasping it. Forty times he read the text, even committing it to memory. But he made little progress toward fathoming it. Years later, he was browsing at an outdoor market and found a brief, cheap book about the Metaphysics by an author named al-Farabi. He read it quickly, and for the first time understood Aristotle’s great work. He was so delighted he went out to the streets and gave away gifts to poor people. I foresee a comparable milestone for you, Capricorn: Something that has eluded your comprehension will become clear, at least in part due to a lucky accident.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In addition to being a key figure in Renaissance art, 15th-century Italian painter Filippo Lippi had a colorful life. According to legend, he was once held prisoner by Barbary pirates but gained his freedom by drawing a riveting portrait of their leader. Inspired by the astrological factors affecting you right now, I’m fantasizing about the possibility of a liberating event arriving in your life. Maybe you’ll call on one of your skills in a dramatic way, thereby enhancing your leeway or generating a breakthrough or unleashing an opportunity. (Please also re-read your horoscope from last week.)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Stand high long enough and your lightning will come,” writes Piscean novelist William Gibson. He isn’t suggesting that we literally stand on top of a treeless hill in a thunderstorm and invite the lightning to shoot down through us. More realistically, I think he means that we should devotedly cultivate and discipline our highest forms of expression so that when inspiration finds us, we’ll be primed to receive and use its full power. That’s an excellent oracle for you. Δ
