Pismo revokes Alex Bar-B-Q project coastal development permit

P

ismo Beach City Manager Jim Lewis made one thing very clear during the Nov. 13 Planning Commission meeting: He wasn’t going to allow city staff to issue any building permits to the Alex Bar-B-Q restaurant project. “I have given direction to the staff … to not issue building or other permits for the Alex BarB-Q project since the environmental and policy assumptions underlying the coastal development permit [CDP] are moot as the building no longer stands,” Lewis said during the meeting. On Sept. 18, the old Alex Bar-B-Q building in Shell Beach was demolished, which the city says violated the coastal development permit it issued to the project’s developers, Compass Health, on June 12, 2018. Rather than tearing down the 350 square-feet along the restaurant’s front wall allowed by the permit, the entire 3,500 square-foot main building came down. And Shell Beach residents let the city know exactly how they felt about it. Lewis said that in his five years as a city manager, no other single project has generated as many comments as what happened at 853 Shell Beach Road. “No item has come across my desk with more interest, passion, and concern than what happened to this building, which is why I’m sitting here,” said Lewis, who normally doesn’t attend Planning Commission meetings. “It was one of the original restaurants along Highway 1. It has an amazing story that goes along with it. … It was where memories were made, both positive and negative, we’ve heard the stories.” In order to legally move forward with any sort of project, Lewis said, the Planning Commission needed to revoke Compass Health’s existing coastal development permit and replace it. Assistant City Attorney Roy Hanley said that the development permit issued for the remodel was based on certain assumptions and environmental findings. It would be nearly

Mark Woolpert, a founder of Compass Health and the chairman of its board, spoke during public comment, saying that the company’s plan was to reconstruct the building from the beginning. “It was never going to be a remodel.

cleaning up the site, etc.” State asks $4.8 million Now city leaders have to decide whether to for shuttered Paso Robles pull the trigger on the acquisition. The City youth prison Council will meet to discuss the potential Paso Robles and the state of California are in the final stages of negotiations on a sale of the Estrella Juvenile Correctional Facility, the shuttered state prison on 137 acres that the city hopes to acquire and repurpose for community uses. But the change of hands won’t come cheap for Paso. The state is asking for fair market value of the land on Airport Boulevard—appraised at $4.8 million—according to City Manager Tom Frutchey. Included in a sale would be the roughly 60 existing buildings and dormitories on site, which the city envisions reusing for a future homeless services center, farmworker lodging, and other endeavors. The prison, which closed in 2008, is currently listed as surplus property by the state Department of General Services (DGS). “So far the state has been unwilling to negotiate price. It is based on their appraised value,” Frutchey told New Times via email. “[That’s] in part because they look just at land. They are not willing to consider the costs of

Frutchey called the meeting in Sacramento “very productive” but said DGS isn’t likely to issue a purchase and sale agreement until 2019. “The additional time will help us complete our due diligence and consider how best to proceed,” he said. Once a purchase and sale agreement is issued, the City Council would have 60 days to approve or reject the offer. If the sale falls through, the state would likely move on to court private developers for the land. In response to questions from New Times about whether DGS would consider a lower price on the property given the public benefits that could come from city ownership, DGS officials sent a web link to state government code on the matter. “The DGS shall sell the land ... upon any terms and conditions ... as the DGS may deem to NEWS continued page 6

Morro Bay discusses on uncounted Prop 218 votes

At the beginning of each Morro Bay City Council meeting, councilmembers are given time for general comment. On Nov. 13, City Councilmember John Headding took the opportunity to open up a conversation about previously uncounted Proposition 218 votes on the sewer rate increase. “In speaking with a large number of constituents in regards to the WRF [wastewater recycling facility], we feel that there can be a healing motion that would begin to repair this torn relationship between the two factions,” he told New Times. On Oct. 23, residents opposing the city’s water reclamation project challenged the city’s refusal to count some Proposition 218 votes on whether to fund the $128 million facility. Residents alleged that the city declined to count approximately 1,000 votes in protest of the Sept. 11 water and sewer rate hikes ($41 per single-family household). The city stated that the votes in question were either undated or marked with a date that was prior to when the public notice was issued about the proposed new rate increase and opened the protest period, which disqualifies them. Headding said he wanted to make it clear that if the discussion were to be agendized the votes could potentially be tallied and the results made known to the public. However, the votes would not count toward the water and sewer rate hike protest, as the determination has already been made. Headding said it was a first step to begin the process of trying to re-establish a solid foundation of communication between the city and its residents. “We have to move forward; we’ve got to work together and listen to one another. It doesn’t mean we always have to agree, but it certainly means we can amicably discuss issues and passionately express our opinions and not have that passion go toward finger pointing to individuals,” he said. During public comment, Morro Bay resident Aaron Ochs, founder of the group Save Morro Bay—a group that formed in opposition of the proposed water reclamation facility—said he was pleasantly surprised by Headding’s motion, but the group is already taking matters into its own hands. “Save Morro Bay is counting and validating all the protests submitted to the city, and we hired an attorney to conduct the process the city has previously refused to do,” Ochs said. “To ensure fairness and transparency, we believe all votes should be counted.” The meeting ran until 11 p.m., so the council voted to continue its remaining agenda items to the next regularly scheduled meeting slated for Nov. 27. Headding said that he will move to agendize the protest votes discussion at that meeting. —Karen Garcia

VIEWER DISCRETION

Locals to get first dibs on SLO wastewater project

Trade workers on the Central Coast will get first priority for work on the massive renovations planned for San Luis Obispo’s wastewater treatment plant, as the SLO City Council adopted its firstever Community Workforce Agreement on Nov. 13 for the project. The agreement formalizes an employment structure that will prioritize the hiring of local contractors and workers, starting from within the city, then out to SLO County, Santa Barbara and Monterey counties, and Ventura County. “Under the terms of a Community Workforce Agreement like the one recommended here, the union hall has the legal authority and commits to prioritize local workers for employment on the city’s project,” a city staff report stated. SLO negotiated the agreement with the Tri-Counties Building and Construction Trades Council, which represents 33 craft unions in SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. Per its terms, the trade unions will be the sole source of craft labor for the $114 million project, but non-union members may participate by registering with the union halls. “It’s going to change a lot of people’s lives,” tradesman David Baldwin said during public comment on Nov. 13. “These agreements do help communities. That’s what they’re all about. More young families are going to get a stay and work here; there’s going to be more opportunities for apprentices here; our local workers are going to work here.” While unions supported the agreement, non-union contractors weren’t so excited about it. Cordelia Perry, executive director of the SLO County Builders Exchange, spoke out in opposition to it, saying project labor agreements (PLAs) raise project costs and disadvantage nonunion contractors. “PLAs become costly on construction projects. ... It’s a waste of taxpayers’ money,” Perry said. “[PLAs] ensure a lot of your local contractors won’t bid on this project.” SLO anticipates that administering the agreement will cost between $325,000 and $498,444. The City Council supported it unanimously. “We know that there are agreements that don’t work and there are agreements that do work,” Councilmember Carlyn Christianson said. “We ultimately wanted to protect local hire, not ... to engage unions. We wanted to try to keep our workforce for this very large project local because ... what we see going forward is a very possible recession and a very specific and very real loss of jobs and training through the Diablo power plant closure.” —Peter Johnson

Cambria votes against health tax Voters did not grant the Cambria Community Healthcare District its special tax wish for the Nov. 6 election, and now the district is looking into other options to fill its funding gap. Each parcel would have paid $35.04 more in taxes, if two-thirds of the health care district’s residents had voted for the special tax. It would have brought in an estimated $236,800 per year for the district to spend on capital assets,

ambulances, buildings, and equipment. Current health care district board President Jerry Wood said (speaking as a resident of the community, not on behalf of the district) that he was disappointed with the outcome of the vote but he understood why the community voted the way it did. “It didn’t have so much to do with the health care district or the tax; it was just extra money that would be coming out of fixed incomes,” Wood said. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 41 percent of Cambria’s 6,032 residents are 65 and older. Although the tax didn’t pass, Wood said that it was just one option that the district was trying to bring in more revenue. “It’s a severe uphill battle. As a board, we decided it was worth making the effort. If you try and get turned down, at least you tried,” he said. The district is currently researching grant opportunities that it can apply for. New board members Laurie Mileur, Bill Rice, and Iggy Fedoroff will be sworn in to the district this month. Wood said that aside from looking into other funding options, their first order of business is to find a new district administrator. Bob Sayers, who retired at the end of September, formerly held the position. The district’s current director and paramedic Jason Melendy has temporarily taken over the position with the help of the district’s services manager, Heidi Holmes-Nagy. In December, Wood’s term as board president will come to an end, but he feels hopeful that once the board begins the process of looking for a new administrator it will find someone who will help with ideas on funding options. “Right now, we’re covered and our response times are equal to or better than the mandated requirements. We have excellent crews that are totally dedicated to their community,” he said. —Karen Garcia

Central Coast Community Energy dissolves; cities to join Monterey program Central Coast Community Energy’s first official board meeting on Nov. 7 was also its last. The new Community Choice Energy (CCE) partnership between SLO city and Morro Bay collapsed as quickly as it coalesced, after an Oct. 11 regulatory decision by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) crushed the local program’s financial outlook. The CPUC raised the exit fees charged to customers fleeing incumbent utilities, like PG&E, for CCE programs, like Central Coast Community Energy. After receiving a dismal new fiscal forecast, the SLO and Morro Bay city

councils voted unanimously on Nov. 13 to dissolve the agency. “We crunched the numbers every which way we could think of to make our local program work financially speaking. The bottom line is it just doesn’t,” said Bob Hill, deputy director of the SLO Office of Sustainability. “It wasn’t going to be robust enough for credit purposes, and it was very sensitive to changes in the market.” But all is not lost for CCE in SLO County. At their respective meetings on Nov. 13, the SLO and Morro Bay councils voted in support of a new CCE pursuit—a partnership with Monterey Bay Community Power, a CCE that currently serves Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties. Monterey Bay Community Power launched earlier this year with a carbonfree energy portfolio. “They seem very receptive,” Hill said of the Monterey program. “There’s a little bit of downside that we won’t have as much local control over our programming. ... But our program was so thin financially, it would’ve been a decade before we could do programs.” Monterey’s policy board will meet on Dec. 5 to approve the merger. Then the CPUC has to sign off on it. Programming for SLO and Morro Bay would start in January 2020, if all goes as planned. The two cities would share one seat on the agency’s board of directors, making up 8 percent of its total power demand. Hill said Monterey’s CCE currently offers 3 percent rebates for customers. The agency has paid down all of its debt and has $40 million in reserves, he added. “We’re excited there’s another option,” he said. —Peter Johnson

Fighting hate SLO’s Jewish community reacts to the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

W

hile the deadly mass shooting that left 11 dead and seven others injured at the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, occurred more than 2,500 miles away, for Lauren Bandari, the tragedy felt much closer to home. “We are not immune to hate, wherever we live,” said Bandari, executive director of the Jewish Community Center Federation of SLO (JCC). The shooting marked the deadliest attack on American Jews in U.S. history and sent shockwaves of grief, anger, and fear across the country. That includes in SLO, where residents of the Jewish community are grappling with the aftermath of the shooting, looking to heal and calling attention to the rise in the anti-Semitic rhetoric that fueled the shooter. The shooting occurred as Bandari and others are organizing the ninth annual SLO Jewish Film Festival, which begins in January. The attack in Pittsburgh colored some of the discussion about the event, leaving Bandari and other organizers looking to strike a balance between grief and mourning, and a joyous celebration of inclusivity in film and art. “The verdict is still a little out in terms

of the tone we want to take,” she said. “The feelings are still very raw and very real.” Members of Congregation Beth David, a synagogue in Los Osos, looked to show solidary and support for the Tree of Life victims in the wake of the shooting. On Nov. 2, members of the congregation and the SLO community joined other synagogues across the U.S. and held a Shabbat service in memory of the victims. “We did this to mourn the 11 Jews killed and to affirm that we will not be intimidated nor deterred from exercising our First Amendment right to freedom of worship guaranteed to all Americans under our Constitution,” Richard Litvak, interim rabbi for Congregation Beth David, told New Times. “We also gathered, in addition to mourning, to express pride in our heritage and be together and strengthen each other during this terrible time of hate.” The shooter, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, reportedly told law enforcement that he carried out the attack because he believed Jews were “committing genocide” on whites. Bowers also made multiple anti-Semitic comments on the social media website Gab. But Litvak said the concern goes beyond just Bowers. “We are all extremely concerned about

the rise of anti-Semitism in America over the last two years,” he said. According to the most recent data from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the U.S. experienced a 57 percent rise in reported anti-Semitic incidents in 2017, the largest single-year increase on record since 1979. Litvak pointed to recent high-profile incidents as an example of a disturbing increase in openly anti-Semitic rhetoric fueling violence in the country—such as the gathering of white supremacists and white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this year, where members of the group carried lit torches and chanted, “the Jews will not replace us.” “Our people are concerned that the political atmosphere has given license to white nationalists and legitimacy to their hateful ideology and violent actions,” Litvak said. Increasingly, blame for rising antiSemitism in the country is being laid at the feet of President Donald Trump. Trump, who stated after the Charlottesville rally that “both sides” were to blame for the violence, has been heavily criticized for failing to strongly repudiate white nationalists. “While trying to stay out of any partisan politics, I think many Jews are concerned about the president providing legitimacy to white nationalists and countenance to their violent actions,” Litvak said. Barry Price, a member of the progressive Jewish social justice organization Bend the Arc’s SLO chapter, said the president’s rhetoric was fueling hate and prejudice and violence against not only Jews, but

Muslims, African-Americans, immigrants, the LGBTQ community, and other marginalized groups. “This toxic rhetoric of political violence is being mainstreamed by Trump and his supporters,” Price said. “The fear of anyone who is a little bit different is being whipped up by the president and his supporters on a daily basis.” That rhetoric and accompanying violence darkly echo to past persecution of Jews, he said, including the anti-Semitic rhetoric that led to the rise of Nazism in Germany and the systematic murder of 6 million Jews during the Holocaust. “After hearing my entire life that it can’t happen here, it’s now quite clear that can happen here and is,” Price said. To combat the rising tide of hate and violence, Price said it was important for people opposed to it to stand together to vocally and visibly speak out against it. “We have to recognize that we are in this together, and that, for now, there are more of us than them,” he said. “Unless people of goodwill stand up and fight back, they are complicit.” Similarly, Litvak encouraged people to support the work of the ADL, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and other organizations that combat hate speech, and to do their part to push back against hateful rhetoric and acts. “The best way to reduce hate in our community is to extend more love and compassion to others and challenge hate and prejudice directly,” he said. ∆ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

Walk in the dark F or the first time in 20 years, locals can enjoy some of the popular trails of San Luis Obispo open space after sunset, as part of a new city “evening access” pilot program that kicked off with the end of daylight saving time on Nov. 5. Until clocks turn back again in March, Cerro San Luis Mountain, also known as Madonna Mountain, will be accessible to the public until 8:30 p.m. via a daily permit system. Up to 65 hikers, runners, and bikers can traverse the city-owned trails—the Lemon Grove Loop and “M” Trail—each evening through the trailhead on Marsh Street. All other SLO city open spaces will remain closed at night (one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise). “Bring light and stay in groups together,” advised Bob Hill, deputy director of the SLO Office of Sustainability. “And one thing that’s really, really critical at night is to keep dogs on leash and keep the noise down.” Night hiking permits are available—first come, first served— at the smartphone-friendly website, slonighthikepermit.info. Permits are capped at 65 to limit the impacts on open space wildlife. Make sure to bring proof of your permit out on the trail, as city rangers are present both at the trailhead and on the

mountain during night hours. Alcohol consumption and smoking are prohibited. Fines for violations are $561. “The rangers are really present,” Hill said, adding that there have been no negative incidents or tickets issued thus far. “People seem to be really wellbehaved and appreciative.” During the program’s first week, Cerro San Luis saw an average of 15 to 20 trail users each evening. The city says it’s closely monitoring the open space, as well as the permit numbers, to understand how the program is affecting the habitat. That was a chief concern among local residents as the SLO City Council intensely debated the issue last year. “We’ve done all the things we’ve promised we’d do,” Hill said. “We did pre-launch wildlife surveys at night and some spotlighting and wildlife calls and observed some of the standard things we see out there, like deer, skunk, possum, and a bobcat. We continue to have our wildlife game cameras.”

My DMV visit It wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be

A

couple of weeks ago I got a letter from the Department of Motor Vehicles that required me to take a written driver’s test in order to renew my license. You see I am old, and I guess they wanted to make sure I still knew the rules after more than 50 years of driving. Lately I have been reading about a lot of bad experiences at DMV offices all over the state: long wait times, surly clerks, and unpleasant buildings. But if I wanted to continue driving, I would have to

He then instructed me to go to another window on the other side of this large building; I hadn’t completed my application online because apparently, I misunderstood the online instruction that said if you make an appointment, you didn’t need to fill out an application. Filling out the application was relatively simple on the touch screen computers provided. I don’t know how someone who

Lately I have been reading about a lot of bad experiences at DMV offices all over the state: long wait times, surly clerks, and unpleasant buildings. But if I wanted to continue driving, I would have to submit to the potential torture chamber submit to the potential torture chamber. It wasn’t like I expected; the instructions in the letter were simple. Set up an appointment online, fill out an application, and there were even several practice tests to prepare you for the big day. On the appointed day and time, I trudged over to the DMV office in Lompoc. It’s located in a very nice and roomy facility at the north end of town. Although there were several people waiting, it wasn’t noisy nor were the people waiting unhappy. Everyone just accepted that it was going to take a few minutes in order to finish processing their needs. I found the line that said, appointments

doesn’t know how to use a computer would complete this or the “written test,” which isn’t really written at all, but it’s also electronic by touch screen. For some reason, the state allows people to take the tests and fill out applications in about a dozen different languages. This doesn’t make sense. All the street signs and information placards are in English, so why aren’t applicants required to have enough English language skills to enable them to pass the test? Next, I was sent back across the room and told to wait until my number was called. My paper was clearly marked “2:30 appointment” but by now, it was a

little later than that. Finally, at about 3 p.m. my number was called. Once again, the clerk took my paperwork, checked it over. I had asked for a veteran’s designation on the license because I was retired from active duty. I thought that this would be a simple process. It wasn’t. The clerk said, “Do you have a Veterans Administration certification that you are a veteran?” Well no, I said, but I have my military identification card that clearly says, “United States Uniformed Services” and “U.S. Air Force Retired” on the front. That wasn’t enough, she said, so I said, “forget it.” Next was the hardest part of the entire process, placing my thumbprint into the system. I tried three times and somehow the system wouldn’t accept it, so they went to plan “B”—simply use my driver’s license number to retrieve the print already in the system. At this point I thought, “Holy cow, if just submitting my thumbprint and not being able to prove I was a veteran was so hard, how will the test go?” I would soon find out. The clerk once again directed me across the wide expanse to another area to take the test and have my picture taken. And once again my thumbprint didn’t work, but this time the clerk provided a substance that cashiers and bank tellers use to help count printed money. Bingo, it worked perfectly! Next I was off to finally take my test; this wasn’t like the last time when I was handed a very long piece of paper and told to “carefully fill in the ovals.” This was a touch screen, and it was easy to operate; the instructions were clear, and after a few minutes the machine congratulated me for a 100 percent score. It wasn’t that I was so brilliant, it was the way the test questions were written and the answers presented. Considering

the millions of people of various backgrounds who must take these tests, anyone with average ability can easily pass the tests. Finally, I was finished; I had paid my $35, finally got my thumbprint to work, and it only took an hour-and-a-half to finish. Overall though, the clerks in Lompoc were very friendly and I left feeling like I had a good experience during my trip to the DMV. ∆ Ron Fink writes to New Times from Lompoc.

Letters Fools Elect Fools

While musing over the inanity of the recent election results, my thoughts digressed to the classic one-liner by comedian Ron White: “You can’t fix stupid.” The lack of intellectual acumen among the people who continue to vote for liars, thieves, criminals, and incompetents indicates clearly that they have chosen precisely the reflection of their own deficits.

The ‘disgruntled’ will not rest

Mayor Heidi Harmon told her supporters, “But we choose love” (“Harmon re-elected SLO Mayor, Christianson and Stewart on council,” Nov. 8), on election night. It seems intended to imply that the Gurnee team and voters do not choose love. Is it supposed to mean that Ken Schwarz, Dave Romero, Alan Settle, Dr. Tedone, and the SLO firefighters do not “choose love” (whatever that is supposed to mean)? Heidi Harmon derides “a small, but loud, and consistently disgruntled” contingent in SLO (“SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon vows to bridge community divide after big win,” SLO Tribune, Nov. 7) who has opposed the city on a number of development decisions. If Harmon hopes as she says, “that we will continue to work together to create a brighter future for our city,” she would be well advised to express herself in more positive language. As Harmon assumes her second term as mayor, buoyed by her win, may sober reflection on issues raised within the campaign refine her judgment and choice of words. May we witness a mayor who has learned from her experience. Let civility be demonstrated, not simply pledged, by our local government and our local media. Post-election civility begins with journalism that reports in neutral, factual language that is equally fair to loser and refrains from extolling the winner. Keith Gurnee lost and phoned to congratulate Heidi Harmon. Was that reported? Indeed the race for mayor was contentious, as is any campaign of two opposing candidates. Gurnee criticized, challenged, had a vision, made promises. That is the nature of campaign rhetoric. To state that Gurnee’s campaign was one of “fear and misinformation” as Harmon is quoted to have said in the Nov. 8 New Times article after winning, is untrue as well as unchivalrous. The only fear that one could imagine to have been induced by Gurnee’s campaign is Harmon’s fear of not being re-elected. That fear can now be put at rest. The large, “disgruntled” group will not be put at rest. Genevieve Czech San Luis Obispo

The folly of nationalism I once read a bestselling novel about the Great War called The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman. The author vividly describes the horrors of the costly and tragic conflict; however, she also provides invaluable historical context that ultimately reveals the underlying rot of nationalism. Not only was the Great War a failure in American leadership and an excuse for imperialism, but it was also an expression

of militant nationalism that shocked— and nearly destroyed—the modern world. The Great War thrust a leaderless Europe into a failure at Versailles, guaranteed a violent conflict with xenophobes, fueled ethnic pogroms, and destroyed the ruleof-law for pride and profit. In America, an all-too familiar compromise of ethics and morality led to the Espionage and Sedition Acts, which forbade interference with the war effort and limited free speech, as well as instigated a pair of infamous “Red Scares” that demonstrated our deepseated prejudices and inability to learn the lessons of the past. In the wake of the global destruction of Europe came a terrifying new form of government, fascism, which used this unique historic opportunity—and weakness in international unity—to manipulate the law, undermine tradition, demonize the opposition, discredit the media, misdirect the public, undermine self-determination, and consolidate power through intimidation and violence. You’d have thought (with tens of millions dead by war, ethnic cleansing, starvation, and disease) we would have learned our lessons about the perils of authoritarianism, and you certainly wouldn’t expect an outgoing generation intimately familiar with these historical events to tolerate the rebirth of nationalism, much less fall victim to its putrid lure. Yet here we are. “Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.” –Albert Einstein Erik Huber Cuesta College

The best vet ever

How about some good news, everyone? Pay attention if you or your friends or loved ones have animals! I just wanted to give a shout out to our local veterinarian Dr. Raffy Dorian from Central Coast Vet, who does home visits. I first read about him in a local paper. It seemed like a dream come true: A vet that comes to your home. Sometimes, if things seem too good to be true they are. Well, let me tell you, certainly not in this case. I’ve had many animals big and small over my 59-plus years on earth. And I have always tried to give them the best care possible, which includes the least amount of stress when visiting the doctor. Dr. Dorian has always afforded us and our babies five-star care! In addition, he is more then reasonable then bringing your pet to a local office, which often causes more stress, not only on your fur baby but yourself. LETTERS continued page 11

Immigrants need our compassion I would like to personally thank both Ed Chandler and Ryah Cooley for giving attention to the plight of immigrants (“Los Osos artist Ed Chandler depicts the struggle to belong at SLOMA exhibit,” Nov. 1).

Give county workers a fair chance at fair wages Thank you for your article, “SLO County employees threaten labor strike as pay lags” (Nov. 8). The Board of Supervisors are OK with imposing a 0.5 percent (yes, half a percent) wage increase for county employees. This isn’t

even a cost of living adjustment (COLA). It’s insulting and abusive. There are too many children of county employees on public assistance because their parent can’t earn enough to pay for the outrageously expensive health care plans that the county offers. An objective third-party arbiter determined that the contract was inconsistent with basic fairness. Our neighbors and fellow SLO citizens need to know that county employees are grossly undervalued and taken advantage of by a wealthy Board of Supervisors, which has no qualms about voting themselves a fair wage increase while the rest of the county applies for MediCal. We don’t want to strike, because we lose pay. But this treatment by the board has gone on too long. We could have asked for more of an inequity increase (8 to 9 percent), but we didn’t. We asked for a measly 3 percent. And to counter with an insult of only half a percent? While providing vital services to the citizens of this county, most of whom do not make a livable wage to live here, we should at least be given a fair chance and a fair wage.

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

Use the force California’s climate and energy goals vs. the California Public Utilities Commission

O

n Nov. 7, six members of the public attended the inaugural meeting of the board of directors of Central Coast Community Energy at San Luis Obispo City Hall. You should’ve been there. The fourmember board, in the course of a quietly undramatic one-hour meeting, saved from oblivion what will likely prove to be the most consequential regional program since the Nacimiento Pipeline. Specifically, they took fast action to put their fledgling Community Choice Energy program under the larger, established umbrella of Monterey Bay Community Power. Without that umbrella, the newborn SLO program would wash away in a storm, courtesy of the California Public Utilities Commission. Few stories of grassroots action succeeding against overwhelming corporate odds are as inspiring as the saga of Community Choice Energy in California. From a single spark— Assembly Bill 117, which in 2002 gave any city or county the authority “to aggregate the electrical load of interested electricity consumers” and “become administrators for cost-effective energy efficiency and conservation programs”—there have now

arisen 20 such programs statewide. AB 117 also called for a fair and competitive playing field for Community Choice programs, Community Choice advocates fought off toxic bills, terrible ballot initiatives, and the bottomless spending and unfair business practices of private utilities seeking to preserve their 100-year grip on the way energy is produced and distributed. Fighting back has been imperative because, as San Francisco organizer Eric Brooks puts it, “Community Choice is by far the most powerful mechanism for rapid renewable energy adoption in California, and most California cities, when enacting their clean energy goals, have stated clearly that they cannot reach those goals without Community Choice.” Early on, like Mr. Skywalker and his friends, Community Choice advocates managed to stay one step ahead of the imperial fleet of the private energy utilities and their allies in the state Legislature who sought to crush the rebels. Whenever the first stirrings of a Community Choice program appeared on the radar anywhere in the state, the empire would rain down a saturation campaign of fear to eradicate any hint of rebellion.

This wasn’t a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away; it’s still happening, right here, right now. The direct industry attacks on Community Choice have shifted to the arena of the California Public Utilities Commission, which many governors have spent decades stacking with fossil fuel and utility-friendly commissioners. Now that Community Choice is working and providing lower rates, more subtlety is required. Instead of monopoly utilities trying to strangle the baby, the CPUC is attempting to suck its blood with the judicious application of leeches. In December 2017, the commission tried to stall the formation of new Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs. Last month, it approved an alternate proposed decision (APD) for a power charge indifference adjustment (PCIA). In English, this means that investor-owned utilities paid too much for energy contracts back in the day and now want departing Community Choice ratepayers to help make them whole through excessive catch-up charges. Upshot: CCA becomes infeasible for many residential customers. The added cost to San Francisco’s program is expected to be $50 million. “Because the PCIA ratchets up over future years and utilities get absolved for contract mismanagement in perpetuity, PCIA poses definite threats to CCA financial competitiveness and institutional viability,” says Ed Mainland of Sierra Club California’s Energy/ Climate Committee. Some good news: Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) has stated,

“The alternate proposed decision voted in by the CPUC will increase costs for MBCP, not for customers. MBCP is dedicated to never cost more than PG&E. MBCP’s customers will receive their 3 percent savings rebate on electricity generation for 2018, and an expected 3.3 percent savings for 2019.” On Dec. 5, Monterey Bay Community Power’s policy board will vote on whether to offer SLO and Morro Bay (for starters) safe harbor and swear them in as new members. Fingers crossed. The existential threat to California’s plans for clean energy and reduced carbon emissions is the CPUC, which has become the Death Star for Community Choice. Legislative remedies are needed. There have been noises made about reforming the CPUC in recent years, mostly in response to the extreme coziness between the commission and PG&E exposed by the San Bruno pipeline explosion. But no amount of commission presidents booted and replaced will change the corporate culture of the CPUC as an agency that currently exists to make life easy for California’s utilities and very hard for any entity that has the temerity to compete with them. If Sacramento’s new legislators are looking for a good cause, here it is. (Help us, Gavin-wan. You’re our only hope.) Δ Andrew Christie is the director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

Trouble right here in Morro Bay

F

riend, either you’re closing your eyes to a situation you do not wish to acknowledge or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated by the presence of a sewer/water rate hike in your community. Well, ya got trouble, my friend, right here. I say trouble right here in Morro Bay! Just listen to local gadfly and Save Morro Bay founder Aaron “Music Man” Ochs, who said during public comment in a Morro Bay City Council meeting, “Nationwide, voter suppression is happening. It’s happening in Georgia, Tennessee, and Kansas—but Morro Bay? It’s happening right now in Morro Bay.” Whaaaaat? Are you kidding me? I didn’t even know it was possible to disenfranchise white retirees! Well, apparently it is! The city of Morro Bay has been trying to get a new wastewater reclamation facility built because apparently it’s not cool to let raw sewage run into the Pacific Ocean. (So many rules! Get on that, Trumpster Fire!) They’ve been going around and around trying to find a suitable location and figuring out how to pay for the proposed $128 million facility. “Hey, we’re on a fixed income? Anyway, I’m late for my pickleball match.” Check your couch cushions, Morro Bay! Dump your purses out on your beds, move the butterscotch candies out of the way, and count your change! The whole “disenfranchisement” thing is about 1,000 votes in opposition to

Proposition 218, which aimed to raise rates by $41 per single-family household per month. The city claimed those 1,000 votes were either undated or marked with a date prior to issuing the new proposed rate hike, which made them invalid. Huh? Is that how that’s supposed to work? Not so fast, Morro Bay! “We don’t want to go to court, but if that’s what it takes, that’s what I’m willing to do for the community,” Ochs said. “Suck it,” City Manager Scott Collins didn’t say but might as well have. “Everybody’s looked at this from a risk assessment perspective and are confident that if there was a legal challenge, it would fail,” Collins actually said to New Times. Well, now Morro Bay City Councilmember John Headding is calling for a “healing motion that would begin to repair this torn relationship between the two factions.” Well, not actually “healing” healing, more like “empty gesture” healing. Headding said Morro Bay might count the votes and make the results public, just not count them toward the rate hike, which has already been decided. Suck it! Huh? Is this the “Minnesota Nice” of Morro Bay? As in, “Go to hell” with a smile? Ochs and his group are not appeased: “We hired an attorney to conduct the process the city has previously refused to do. To ensure fairness and transparency, we believe all votes should be counted.” I haven’t seen this much bull poop since Los Osos started working on its sewer

plant. You can’t hold it forever, Morro Bay! Read Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi! You’ll see! Speaking of bull poop, remember the El Paso de Robles Youth Correctional Facility, which was closed in 2008 because the state of California thought it’d be nicer to incarcerate children closer to their home communities? First the state was going to convert it to a 1,000bed male medical patient prison, the Estrella Correctional Facility, but the state deemed it unnecessary after sending lower-level offenders and parole violators back to the jails in their communities … where in the SLO County Jail’s case they could die of medical neglect and stuff! Well, the unused children’s prison is still just sitting empty—137 acres on Airport Boulevard, with about 60 buildings and dorms. Paso Robles city officials know there’s a big homeless problem in California, and they’d like to acquire the property for homeless services, farmworker housing, sports facilities, and other community uses. Sounds great, right? And the state through its Department of General Services already designated the property surplus, meaning it was open to other state agencies for use, but there were no takers. Instead of the state continuing upkeep (sort of), why not let Paso use it to mitigate homelessness and more?

“Sure thing,” the state said. “Just give us $4.8 million and it’s all yours.” Um, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, the Golden State’s perpetual camping population (I love a good euphemism, don’t you?) jumped nearly 14 percent between 2016 and 2017. Hey, State o’ Cali, ain’t these “campers” part of your problem, too? And here’s good o’ Paso Robles offering to help fix it, and you want to stick them for nearly 5 million smackaroos? Douchey! And speaking of douchey, it looks like the total demolition of Shell Beach landmark Alex Bar-B-Q by Compass Health for a proposed restaurant project, which was completed without permission or proper permits, is turning into a major headache for Compass Health. The city of Pismo Beach encouraged its planning commissioners to rescind Compass Health’s coastal development permit, and even if they didn’t (they did), City Manager Jim Lewis said he would direct his staffers to refuse to issue building permits. Let’s see. Compass Health has already drained the charm out of Avila Beach’s classic dive diner the Old Custom House. Maybe they should stick to health care. Sometimes it’s not better to beg for forgiveness than ask permission. ∆ The Shredder abides. Send ideas and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

Legal Notice

Was Your Oil Industry Job or Business Affected by the 2015 Santa Barbara Oil Spill? You Could Be Part of a Class Action Lawsuit To: Oil Workers and Businesses that Supplied Offshore Oil Drilling Platforms or Onshore Processing Facilities There is a class action lawsuit against Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (“Plains Pipeline”). The Court ordered this notice and decided that this case should be a class action on behalf of a “Class” or group of people. The Court has not decided that Plains Pipeline did anything wrong, and the parties have not reached a settlement. Rather, the case may go to trial. There is no money available now and no guarantee that there will be. Plains Pipeline has filed an appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals requesting that the Oil Industry Subclass not be allowed to move forward as a Class. Please register at www.PlainsOilSpill.com or call 1-888-684-6801 to be kept informed about the progress of this appeal. What is this case about? This lawsuit claims that due to the May 19, 2015 Santa Barbara oil spill, workers and businesses that support the Santa Barbara oil industry suffered financial losses with the subsequent pipeline shutdown. Plains Pipeline denies these claims and denies it did anything wrong. The lawyers for the Class will have to prove their claims in Court. Who’s included? You are included in the Oil Industry Subclass if you are an individual or business who was employed or contracted to work on or to provide supplies, personnel, or services for the operations of: • Offshore oil drilling platforms: Hidalgo, Harvest, Hermosa, Heritage, Harmony, Hondo, and/or Holly, off the Santa Barbara County coast, or • Onshore processing facilities at Las Flores/POPCO, Gaviota, and/or Venoco/Ellwood, as of May 19, 2015. Visit the website, www.PlainsOilSpill.com, for more specific information. Who represents the Class? The Court has appointed a group of attorneys to represent the Class as “Class Counsel.” You don’t have to pay Class Counsel or anyone else to participate. Class Counsel will seek fees and costs from the Court. Typically, lawyers are paid a percentage of the recovery obtained on behalf of the class or that amount is separately negotiated by the parties. You may hire your own lawyer to appear in Court for you, but if you do, you have to pay that lawyer. What are your options? To stay in the Class, you do not have to do anything. If Plaintiffs are successful, you will be notified about how to make an individual claim for money or benefits. If you want to keep your rights to sue Plains Pipeline on your own over claims or issues in this case, you need to exclude yourself. If you exclude yourself, you cannot get money or benefits from this lawsuit if any are awarded. The deadline to exclude yourself is January 10, 2019. You can find out how to exclude yourself at the website or by calling the toll-free number.

When I first sat down to start crafting, I stared in confusion at some of the unfamiliar instruments that lay before me. One resembled a giant hole puncher, except it punched out little characters you could use to decorate your cards with. I just wanted my cards to magically make themselves at first, but that feeling went away once I got that puncher down (still don’t know what that thing is called). I was punching characters left and right. The only one I ended up actually using though was a mummy for a Halloween card (saving that for next year, obviously). McBride was available for questions during the entire class of course, so any questions that came to mind were answered. She wandered around the group table conversing with each participant. Some were regulars. Some were even past students from her teaching days at Cal Poly, she said. And the rest, like me, were brand new. “I learn so much from folks while we sit and stamp and chat,” McBride said. “One of my regular stamp campers swears it’s cheaper than therapy and a lot more fun.” Δ Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood collects cards of the Dragon Ball Z variety.

16 days of holiday cheer Winterfest comes to Morro Bay for its second year BY KAREN GARCIA

F

or 33 years, the city of Morro Bay has held its annual Morro Bay Lighted Boat Parade. It’s a staple in the coastal community, where boaters decorate their vessels and travel up the bay for spectators to enjoy. But the city was looking for a way to expand the parade and bring in more activities for the community as well as foot traffic for local businesses during the holiday season. It was a job for Teri Bayus, who’s had her share of event planning from the Central Coast Writers Conference to the Pismo Beach Clam Festival. She’s now the creator of Morro Bay’s newest holiday festivities, Winterfest. It’s 16 days of snow, a Santa crawl (similar to a pub crawl), vendors, visits with Santa, gingerbread-house making, and more. This will be the second year that Bayus is running the show and she’s hoping to make the second year a little more extravagant than the first. Bayus said she got the gig after working closely with Morro Bay’s tourism department manager, Jennifer Little, on the writers conference. “[Little] asked me, ‘If you could have a whole city for Christmas what would you do?’” Bayus said. “So I came up with all these ideas, not thinking that it was a job interview.” Next thing she knew, Bayus was in front of the city’s tourism business improvement district advisory board vying for the job alongside two other potential candidates— she got it. “This city doesn’t have very many holiday decorations or holiday branding, so I’m helping to hopefully put something together that will stick,” she said.

HOLIDAY AT SEA For 33 years, Morro Bay has been lighting up its waters with the Morro Bay Lighted Boat Parade during the first weekend in December.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF TERI BAYUS

SETTING SAIL

On Nov. 1, Bayus took New Times along to a couple of her business meetings to talk about the festival and how she collaborates with various people in the city. For the second year in a row, the Morro Bay Lighted Boat Parade will kick off Winterfest. Traditionally, the parade occurs on the first Saturday of December, but this year it will start on Friday, Nov. 30. That night, about 10 to 12 local businesses will sponsor boats to be in that night’s parade. The newest addition to the evening is that anyone can rent a decorated boat and ride along in the parade. “If you want to have a Christmas party or have your family riding on the lighted boat, you can have the whole boat for the night,” she said. “Last year, I rented a boat and put all my volunteers on it because I knew they would be working the next 12 days so I wanted to give them a treat.” Dec. 1 will be an even brighter evening, as about 45 boats will set sail through the water with judges keeping an eye on decoration detail and spectators watching from the shore. The catches of the day are cash prizes for parade winners and goodie bags for all participants. But the parade is something that Bayus stresses about. MORRO BAY continued page 30

ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS TREES Teri Bayus got 12 individuals and businesses to put up crab pot Christmas trees last year; her goal is to have the trees all over the city’s downtown area.

MORRO BAY from page 28

In between laughs, she said that last year she got the final OK from Homeland Security two days before the big event. Her first stop is the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol where she spoke to Harbor Patrol Supervisor Becka Kelly. Kelly has been on both ends of the parade, watching it with her family and orchestrating the line of boats on the water. “It’s a bit chaotic in the lineup because in the past it used to be where, say there’s 25 boats participating and we had to get them in order one through 25,” Kelly said. “That beginning part is still tricky because everybody is trying to sit in one place because a boat doesn’t stay in one place. The tide is pulling us in one direction and the wind in another.” Bayus brought in reflective plastic numbers so boats don’t have to be in order and judges can easily tell who is who. As for the tide, everyone will keep a close eye on the tide predictions. The two talk about the Harbor Patrol’s soon-to-be sponsor for its boat that will cruise in the parade on Nov. 30 and Bayus’ determination to have more crab pots throughout the city’s downtown and Embarcadero areas. Cambria has scarecrows around the harvest season, so Bayus wanted something similar for Morro Bay. Something that people can grab a map and scout for, walk around and stumble upon, or something families in a car

there are high winds, it’s not going to be knocked down,” she said. “It’s not much to see during the day but at night when it’s lit, it is stunning.” About 12 were scattered around the city, and she’s hoping to increase that number this year.

tree for his business front. DeGarimore said he’s always willing to participate in giving back to his community in any way he can; it’s his favorite thing to do. “Doing business in Morro Bay day to day isn’t always exciting, but being able to help is my favorite part,” DeGarimore said. He said he loves interacting with the locals and takes pride in seeing people bring their families to his businesses. “People say, ‘Yeah I sat in front of the crab tank with angel wings at Giovanni’s and now I’m bringing my kids to do it.’ It’s awesome,” he said. “So when you hear all of these stories about multi-generational experiences happening at your establishment, it’s like, ‘Man, I’m a part of that.’” DeGarimore signed up to have his wine bar Stax as one of the stops during the Santa crawl. Bayus lights up when she talks about the crawl. She said that last year there were 250 people dressed as Santa walking from one place to another or riding the trolley together. Bayus has other activities up her sleeve.

ELFING AROUND In addition to the evening grandeur of the Lighted Boat Parade, paddle boarders, kayakers, and surfers are welcome to a day parade.

FROST ON THE COAST Winterfest includes a snow day for families to come in and make snowballs, snowmen, and experience the magic of iced powder.

There will be a snow day, when 6 tons of ice will get spread around Tidelands Park with three sections: one for those aged 5-years-old and younger, a hill, and a snowball range. She’s created an Elf on the Shelf competition and a gingerbread

competition. For 16 days, Santa will be in the Santa House that the Morro Bay Rotary Club built, complete with a Rotary Club member volunteering as Santa’s elf. On Dec. 2, the day after the Lighted Boat Parade, is a smaller event for anyone with

a kayak, paddle board, or even surf board to dress up and parade along the water. Bayus is happy with the festival so far and hopes it continues to grow. “Seeing all these people together, there isn’t a better community to be in than this one, that really works together and comes together for something like this,” Bayus said.

The NIMBY who stole Christmas BY CHRIS MCGUINNESS

E

very SLOcal in SLO loved Christmas a lot, But the NIMBY, who lived near downtown, did not! He’d heard plans from the city while out on a lark, To put a big Christmas tree in his neighborhood park. While the SLOcals exchanged gifts and holiday greetings, The NIMBY railed against the tree at the City Council’s next meeting. “It’s improperly zoned! It’ll back up the traffic!” “The crowd it will draw will cause terrible havoc!” “Cal Poly students would come,” he warned. “Unruly frat boys.” “Think of the trash, and the noise, noise, noise!” But the council was deaf to the poor NIMBY’s plea, And they all voted yes on erecting the tree. The NIMBY went home and he started to brood. There was a show at the Fremont, but he was not in the mood. “I must stop this change to my neighborhood now. “I must stop that terrible tree, but how?” Then he got an idea. An awful idea. The NIMBY got a wonderful, awful idea. He put on a red shirt, stuck a rose in his hair, And if you squinted your eyes hard he looked just like the mayor! With this clever disguise the NIMBY had no trouble at all, Sneaking into the planning department down at City Hall. He stole the zoning permits, he stole the council’s decree, He even shredded the CEQA report on the tree. He chuckled and snickered as he snuck home in the dark. “Now let those jerks try to ruin my park!”

His mission was over and there was nothing to do, But wait to hear all the SLOcals crying boo-hoo! So he sat in his house, just waiting around, Then as the sun arose, he began hearing a sound. It didn’t sound sad. It didn’t sound sorry. The sound was so merry, impossibly jolly! He ran to the park, and what did he see? It was smiling SLOcals and a huge Christmas tree. He looked at the lights and the star on the top. The SLOcals began singing and just wouldn’t stop. “They did it without permits,” the NIMBY said with a snort. “They did it without regulations or environmental reports!” The NIMBY stared and he puzzled, His brain turned like wheel. “Maybe this tree,” he said, “isn’t that big of a deal.” And what happened just then? Well, the SLOcals, they say, The NIMBY just grumbled, “I guess the tree is OK.” And he joined them all singing in the dancing light’s glow. And so passed another Christmas in the city of SLO.

Eight nights of solidarity SLO Jewish community to hold annual ‘Hanukkah Downtown’ in wake of Pittsburgh massacre BY PETER JOHNSON

M

ission San Luis Obispo may be best known as a landmark of Catholicism, but for eight nights in December, Mission Plaza transforms into an ecumenical hub. The 5-foot-tall wooden menorah holding burning candles stands right next to a towering lit-up Christmas tree. A “spin the dreidel” station is steps away from Santa Claus’ house. Traditional music of both Christmas and Hanukkah play in harmony. It’s a longtime tradition in SLO—called Hanukkah Downtown—that will take place again this year, starting on Sunday, Dec. 2, with a free community party and celebration at 5 p.m. In addition to a ceremonial lighting of the first menorah candle and readings about the Hanukkah story, the familyfriendly evening will include festive traditions like dreidel spinning, menorah making, and cookie decorating, according to the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of SLO, which hosts the event. A candle lighting ceremony will take place each subsequent night through Dec. 9, the final night of Hanukkah. Hanukkah Downtown came to fruition more than 25 years ago, as an inspired collaboration between Old Mission Church Reverend Jim Nisbet and Congregation Beth David Rabbi Harry Manhoff. “The menorah was actually designed and built by the Mission Church,” explained Lauren Bandari, executive director of the JCC of SLO. “Father Nisbet had studied Israeli art and was really influenced by Israeli art. The two

of them kind of collaborated to build this menorah and have there be a spot in downtown SLO where we get to celebrate this really joyous holiday of Hanukkah. It’s the festival of lights and the miracle of our oil lasting for eight nights, really just fighting for religious freedom. ... A poignant message right now.” Hanukkah arrives this year in the wake of a tragic, hate-inspired mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On Oct. 27, a man with anti-Semitic views entered the synagogue during Shabbat morning services and open fired, murdering 11 and injuring seven. In an expression of solidarity, Bandari said there will be a station in Mission Plaza on Dec. 2 for community members to write messages of love and condolences to the Tree of Life congregation.

DREIDEL CHILD A child wears a dreidel costume at last year’s Hanukkah Downtown at Mission SLO.

“We’ll have a station with all of these cards that say ‘shalom,’ which means hello, goodbye, and peace in Hebrew,” Bandari said. “We’ll let people write on those cards, gather as many as we can, and send them from SLO to Pittsburgh.” The Hanukkah event won’t be the first local public display of solidarity with Tree of Life. The day after the shooting, hundreds of students and SLO community members gathered at Cal Poly’s University Union for a candlelit vigil. On Friday, Nov. 2, congregations from Atascadero to Santa Maria participated in a national movement, “Show Up for Shabbat,” where hundreds more flocked to synagogues, Jewish or not, “to be there and to stand in support with their Jewish family, friends, or HANUKKAH continued page 38

neighbors,” Bandari said. “It’s been a really beautiful outpouring of support.” While bigoted rhetoric and hate crimes are on the rise nationwide, Bandari noted that anti-Semitism isn’t a foreign concept to the Jewish community. She pointed out that Hanukkah itself is the tale of Jewish people overcoming religious persecution. “Anti-Semitism and hate are not new,” she said. “It’s this exposed underbelly of our world—not isolated to our country—that is usually kind of tucked in your tight jeans or something. Now it’s like totally hanging out.” Bandari said the diversity that will be on display in the Mission during Hanukkah will be the perfect demonstration of the type of world we must strive to create. Families from all backgrounds and religions typically attend to celebrate and learn from one another. “It’s a night that a lot of families— especially blended families that are

Christmas spirit for hire! Professional carolers can spruce-up any holiday gathering

BY GLEN STARKEY

A

s a kid growing up in Wisconsin, I remember carolers coming door to door. My mom would always have a plate of cookies around to hand out after they sang a carol or two on our front steps. These days the practice isn’t very common. In fact, I’ve never had carolers knock on my door in California, which is too bad, because nothing gets you in the Christmas spirit like a rousing rendition of “Joy to the World” or “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” and there’s nothing like a tender version of “Silent Night” or “The Little Drummer Boy” to remind you of the real meaning behind the holiday. Similar to me, Linda A. Wilson—the musical director of the Victorian-style Uncommonne Carolers and a member of the ’50s-style trio The Jingle Belles— grew up on Christmas carols and church singing. When she moved to the Central Coast and started singing in groups such as the SLO Master Chorale, it made perfect sense to gather some of her follow performers to do some casual caroling as the holidays rolled around.

Now nearly 30 years later, her casual caroling group is the professional Uncommonne Carolers, which has had as many as 16 members working in four quartets, performing all around SLO County and as far south as Solvang. To expand her repertoire and invigorate her interest in caroling, a few years ago she formed The Jingle Belles with Terri Kahn and Donna Jones, who sing in the FIFTIES SASS! The Jingle Belles— (left to right) Linda A. Wilson, Terri Kahn, tight vocal harmony style and Donna Jones—perform in the spirit of The Andrews Sisters. of The Andrews Sisters, with original Wilson’s groups are arrangements and tight harmonies. hired by private parties as well as big companies: PHOTO COURTESY OF HOLLEY ELIZABETH PHOTOGRAPHY “We’ve been singing at the been singing at the Friends of Oceano times at Cambria Christmas Market,” Downtown Centre, Court Airport Toys for Tots Fly-in, at Rita’s Wilson said.

CAROLERS from page 40

singers are top-notch performers: “A cappella singing in a small group requires excellent vocal skills and the ability to blend and sing solos when needed,” Wilson noted. “Singers learn very close harmonies and stay both in tune and on pitch. In addition, singers need to be ‘performers’ and be able to relate to audiences, large or small.” Both groups’ Facebook pages offer ways to reach Wilson for bookings, or people can email her directly at lindawilsonslo@ gmail.com. Just so you know, The Jingle Belles already have a very full holiday schedule! As early as August, both groups begin to gather to work on their repertoire, some of which holds over from previous years and some of which is added with each new season. “Songs are selected based on having a well-rounded song list to meet the needs of different situations,” Wilson explained. “Our ‘book’ is updated every year. I write new arrangements of existing songs and new songs are added. We definitely take requests in advance and do our best to meet that request. We’ve also re-written song lyrics for specific events. In fact, we did a special event for a golf Christmas party and included ‘Away In A Sand Trap,’ among others. There are times that someone may request a song that we don’t have in our book, and while we may not be able to perform it on the spot, if it’s a good suggestion, it may be added the next

year. That’s how ‘Suzy Snowflake’ was added to The Jingle Belles’ song list.” While the groups obviously get paid, there are other benefits to caroling. “Our favorite responses are from children,” Wilson enthused. “They love the costumes and the bells we use. One person in each group is the ‘bell ringer,’ which we use to keep rhythm. When our kids were little, I made a costume for the daughter of the woman who sang alto in the group. It was a Christmas present so she could come and ‘sing’ with us the next year. That was probably one of my favorite years. She loved her mom’s costume and wanted one of her own. She’s grown up to be an amazing performer in her own right and is incredibly talented. “When we perform for people in assisted living residences, it can be very emotional. Music brings us to places where we remember different times in our lives, and seeing those responses is very powerful. One time when we sang in Vons—the one on Broad Street in SLO the first two years when it opened … nothing like singing ‘Frosty the Snowman’ in the frozen food section!— and a young man asked us how much we would charge to come to his home as soon as we were done. He was proposing to his girlfriend and wanted us to surprise her right before he asked her. That was amazing!” Δ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Here in SLO County 29% of our households live below the Real Cost Measure, with 95% of those households having at least one working adult. Visit www.unitedwayslo.org to learn more!

We're focused on school readiness and childhood literacy with our Imagination Library partnership. Our Born Learning Academy and Vello programs provide practical tools to create early learning opportunities for young children, inspire a love of reading at an early age, and help children become stronger, more confident readers.

United Way is increasing social emotional literacy through workshops with parents of young children, and providing vital referrals and information to the community via 211SLO.org.

Volunteers teach personal finance skills to high school seniors with our Money Talks curriculum, and help families become more financially independent with free tax filing via MyFreeTaxes.org.

We're uniting organizations in addressing the root causes of problems to create lasting change for our future. We foster cultural literacy and education in our community with our Community Impact Fund Grant process, create awareness in our community via radio station KYXZ 107.9 LP FM, connect volunteers with opportunities at more than 275 local nonprofits with volunteerSLO.org, and develop future philanthropic leaders with our Youth Board.

Tight on Funbucks? Here’s your gift guide for the year 2049 BY CHRIS MCGUINNESS

W

ell, the year 2049 is nearly over. A lot happened: The last of the polar icecaps melted; the Interstellar United Nations finally signed a Peace Treaty with that huge swarm of sentient amazon.com drones we’ve been at war with; and our beloved Space Emperor Zorg—long may he reign—completed the construction of his massive intergalactic dreadnaught, the USS Sun Crusher. But before we can ring in 2050 with the customary champagne toasts and laser scythe death battles in the municipal Thunderdome, we must first turn our attention to Christmas, and more specifically, what sort of gifts to buy our friends and family. I know money is tight. The economy just hasn’t been the same since our planet was forced to change its currency from dollars to “Imperial Funbucks,” but fear not, holiday shoppers, this handy guide will help you YEAR 2049 continued page 47

YEAR 2049 from page 46

pick out the best gifts at the lowest prices and turn your futuristic dystopia into a futuristic dyst-ho-ho-ho-pia! Merry Christmas and long live Galactic Emperor Zorg!

ARM-MOUNTED PARTICLE CANNON

For that cyborg in your life who seems to have everything. Last year, the hot trend among our cybernetically enhanced brethren was replacing their hands with large buzzsaws. This year, however, arm-mounted beam weapons are all the rage. This gift shows that you’re hip to the latest fashions and care about personal safety. The cannon is great for disintegrating those pesky mutant armies that occasionally rise up from the sewers to attack us surface dwellers. Available at Cyborgs-R-Us and Sharper Image.

SOYLENT GREEN

Sometimes you just have to go with the classics. This popular foodstuff has been a beloved nutritional staple since Emperor Zorg signed the FDA’s “Yeah, We Know It’s Made From People But We Just Don’t Care Act” into law back in 2027. Popular holiday

Now I know what you’re thinking:

STARBUCKS

CAN I REALLY AFFORD A DEATH STAR IN THIS ECONOMY? GIFT CARDS

Well, the answer is an emphatic Y-E-S!

flavors include Pumpkin Spice, Eggnog, and Salvation Army Santa. To give your gift of Soylent a further festive twist, consider using a cookie cutter to shape them into little gingerbread men and packaging them in a holiday-themed tin! Available at grocery stores everywhere.

JAGGED METAL SPIKES

Not everyone is content to cower within the domed megacities we call home. For the hardened cutthroat who spends their time roving the radioactive wastelands with their fellow raiders, you just can’t go wrong with a stocking full of jagged metal spikes. Whether they end up on the hood of a supercharged wasteland assault buggy or on those big leather shoulder pads raiders seem to love so much, jagged spikes are a versatile gift that’s guaranteed to bring a smile to their face and strike fear into the hearts of rival wasteland hordes. Available at Home Depot or a pile of smoldering wreckage near you.

A DEATH STAR

Now I know what you’re thinking: Can I really afford a Death Star in this economy? Well, the answer is an emphatic Y-E-S! The collapse of the Death Star construction bubble last year left the market flooded with giant planet-destroying space stations and now sellers are looking to offload them at bargain basement prices! If a new Death Star is still out of your price range, don’t despair. There are plenty of gently used, pre-owned ones available through private sellers on Craigslist or semi-reputable dealers willing to offer generous financing packages. Sure, a Death Star is still a significant purchase, but just imagine the look on your spouse’s face when you point to the gigantic gray orb with a big red bow hanging in the sky and say, “Merry Christmas, honey!” Available at Crazy Vader’s Used Death Star Emporium.

This gift might seem like an uncreative cop out, but hear me out. Sometimes you just don’t know what to get someone for Christmas. Take Martians for example. They only started colonizing our planet a few years ago, and their language is an untranslatable series of wet throat noises and screeches. Why are they here? What do they want? What sort of gifts do they like? Do they have a religion or even celebrate Christmas? No one really knows. Still, they are here to stay and there’s no reason not to try and bridge the cultural divide by buying your neighborhood Martian family a gift. A Starbucks’ gift certificate and a nice nondenominational card is a safe way to wish happy holidays to your alien friends and avoid any awkward miscommunications that might get you abducted by a UFO or vaporized by one of their de-atomizers. Available at Starbucks. Δ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness was abducted by Emperor Zorg but still wants his very own Death Star at cmcguinness@ newtimesslo.com.

Camaraderie! Help a DJ in need! Support Manuel Barba!

T

hieves suck, and musicians and DJs in particular are susceptible to their treachery. They all have expensive equipment usually amassed in a small area like a car or practice space— equipment they need to earn a living!— so it’s easy to lose it all in an instant. Such was the case for Manuel Barba, who’s been a huge part of our local music community as a DJ and concert promoter. This Friday, Nov. 16, Bang the Drum Brewery hosts a fundraiser to help Barba replace his stolen DJ gear, which was swiped out of his car through a smashed window in the middle of the night. “Bang the Drum Brewery will donate 30 percent of all sales for the first hour (6 to 7 p.m.), and then 20 percent from 7 to 10 p.m.,” organizer and fellow DJ Velanche Stewart said. “There will be a silent auction, and some jars to put in your additional donations. Soul Dust DJs will be there to spin music, and Manuel will be there too!” If you have anything you’d like to donate to the silent auction, you can email Stewart at velanche@gmail.com. Barba has been getting by through generous DJ friends who have loaned him equipment for his gigs, but now it’s time to resupply a DJ who’s given so much to the local scene. “If you know Manuel Barba, when it comes to music in San Luis Obispo, he’s just as much a fixture as any performer or band,” Stewart said. “Having been a longtime DJ, you found him working at Boo Boo Records back in the day, or these days co-owning and running his own record store, Traffic Records. He’s

been one of the faces, and a co-founder, behind the SLO Record Swap events, has been involved in a number of charitable events, and has earned the respect of the DJ community, as well as the community at large, both from within and outside of SLO County. His influence is immeasurable and vast.” Taqueria 805 will be on hand with food, the beer will flow, and the music will be awesome! The Soul Dust DJs, of which Barba is part of the collective, will be dropping bomb tunes all night! Come help out a guy who’s done so much for others! As for the thieves, karma’s a bitch, scumbags!

On the vine Former Central Coast journalist pens wine country thriller

T

he hills of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties are dotted with wine grapes as far as the eye can see. But in those twisted vines, former Santa Maria Times journalist Steve Corbett saw something more— a tale of bloody vengeance and even enlightenment. After five years of covering undocumented immigrants, outlaw bikers, the Michael Jackson molestation case, and more, Corbett went back to his roots in Pennsylvania and wrote the novel Blood Red Syrah, about middle-aged Wally Wilson’s psychedelic pilgrimage through California’s Central Coast wine country. New Times spoke with Corbett about wine, writing, and more.

IMAGE COURTESY STEVE CORBETT

New Times: What is Blood Red Syrah all about? Steve Corbett: Blood Red Syrah is a gruesome California wine country thriller. I see it as a novel of human madness that goes to the search for truth. NT: What inspired you to write Blood Red Syrah? SC: I’ve been a writer my entire life. The inspiration always comes from the way people treat each other. The lessons I learned as someone who worked desperately to be a Californian, I recognized the many Californians Sip that existed on the Central Coast. on this Blood Red Syrah by Steve Corbett is available on Amazon for $19.99 for paperback and $9.99 for the Kindle version.

ulius Avery (Son of a Gun) directs this action/mystery/horror story about two World War II-era American paratroopers—Boyce (Jovan Adepo) and Ford (Wyatt Russell)—who are dropped behind enemy lines on D-Day eve to complete an operation essential to the invasion’s success, but as they approach their target, they discover a Nazi experiment that creates powerful zombie soldiers. (109 min.)

War II action, but slowly the Americans see there’s something more afoot. They find a weirdly shaped dog carcass, and Chloe’s aunt is making strange noises behind a closed bedroom door. This being a war film, there’s also Chloe’s adorable kid brother, Paul (Gianny Toufer), who takes a liking to Tibbet. We meet the story’s chief antagonist SS Hauptsturmführer Cpt. Wafner (Johan Philip “Pilou” Asbæk), who stops by Chloe’s to rape her … again. Nazis! So easy to hate! Anna Indeed they are, and Wafner is especially hateable along with Dr. Schmidt (Erich Redman), who has concocted the strange potion they’re injecting the imprisoned villagers with. The motley crew of surviving soldiers is forced to trust and lean on each other despite hardly knowing one another. Ford is an especially brooding character, commanding and mysterious as the crew’s head honcho. The filmmakers did this one right—Overlord manages to stay both campy and exciting, a genuine feast for the eyes till the very end. It’s funny and harrowing and pretty gross sometimes, keeps your heart pumping in that wonderful edge-of-your-seat way only movies can accomplish. It’s got bad guys that are so genuinely easy to hate, a group of reluctant heroes, a beautiful and fierce French woman, a cute little kid, and plenty of explosions along the way. I for one had a lot of fun watching this one. The dynamics of the cast play well off of each other, and

Glen This film’s premise sounds like a recipe for cinematic disaster. The Nazi/ zombie genre is a well-worn path of mediocrity, from Dead Snow to Outpost to Zombie Lake (or Le Lac Des Morts Vivants in French). But Overlord does something different—it tells a cracking good war story that just happens to run into some zombies. It’s D-Day eve, and a squad of paratroopers is on a mission to take out a German radio tower in Nazioccupied France. It’s a harrowing flight, and the aircraft is mercilessly strafed. Looking out of the plane to the armada of warships heading to the beaches, seeing other planes shot out of the sky—it’s all very effective filmmaking, but when we follow Boyce out of the damaged plane as he’s hurling through the air, tracer bullets whizzing by and explosions filling the sky, it’s amazing and terrifying. It’s a great opening set piece! When Boyce is finally on the ground, it appears as if only he and Ford made the landing. Dead paratroopers hang from the trees like grim Christmas ornaments. Eventually they reconnoiter with two other soldiers—cranky ItalianAmerican Tibbet (John Magaro) and soft-spoken photographer Chase (Iain De Caestecker)—and then happen upon Chloe (Mathilde Ollivier), a young French woman GROSS OUT!

WHERE’S PAUL? French freedom fighter Chloe (Mathilde Ollivier, left) with the help of U.S. soldier Boyce (Jovan Adepo) go in search of Chloe’s little brother, who’s been taken to a Nazi laboratory where local villagers are being experimented on.

Tibbet’s mouthy attitude yet reluctant attachment toward little Paul is especially endearing. It’s a great blend of war story with a supernatural twist, enough gore to make you squirm, and an epic ending. There’s no reason not to catch this one on the big screen—it’s a blast and a half. Glen Instead of making a bunch of cookiecutter characters to act as cannon fodder for the Nazis, you really get to know these guys. Boyce catches a lot of guff from Tibbet because he’s too sweet natured. Will he be able to kill when the time comes? We get to find out! Ford has already seen a lot of action, and he’s jaded, but he and Boyce are focused on the mission even though it seems impossible. Naturally, young Paul becomes imperiled, and the American soldiers are torn between completing their essential mission and saving Paul and destroying the Nazi laboratory and its evil experiments. If they don’t take out the tower, the D-Day landing will be a disaster, opening up their fellow soldiers to a bloodbath. It’s all pretty harrowing stuff, and by the end, Boyce finds out what he’s made of. It’s got all the earmarks of a terrific war film with the added bonus of being a well-made zombie flick. As I noted earlier, these types of Nazi/zombie mash-ups have yielded pretty silly results. Overlord, however, is revisionist history at its finest. The U.S. Army was segregated in World War II, but the film doesn’t make a big deal of its mixed race casting. Think of it as a B-movie version of Saving Private Ryan with some excellent gore effects. This is the film I didn’t know I needed. Loved it!

OUTED Jared (Lucas Hedges), a Baptist preacher’s son, is forced into a gay conversion program after he’s outed to his parents, in Boy Erased, screening exclusively at The Palm Theatre.

Anna The doctor’s macabre creations lurk in the underground lab, and there’s more going on than just creating super soldiers, which becomes clear when Boyce inadvertently finds himself in the bowels of the church after hiding out in the back of a truck stuffed with dead soldiers. Heads and spines with no bodies, disfigured humans seemingly morphing inside huge suspended bladders high in the air—it’s weird stuff! After overpowering Wafner, Ford starts a cycle of interrogation and beatings, which while brutal do little to the get Wafner to reveal what’s really going on in that fortress. Soon enough they learn the true power of the serum the Nazis have concocted, and the gravity of what could happen if either side had access to the formula sinks in for our heroes. It becomes clear that their initial mission must be amended to include not just the tower, but the lab and all of its horrific contents. Every second they’re in that lab, both wiring it up for a hopeful explosion and in search of Paul, had me holding my breath. This is one where I really wanted the good guys to win, come hell or high water. It’s a bloodbath gore-fest Nazisploitation flick at its finest and an all-around great war movie with a delicious zombie twist.

CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? The Palm Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) directs Melissa McCarthy as Lee Israel, an author in a career limbo who commits literary forgery in order to make ends meet. The film is an adaptation of Lee Israel’s confessional autobiography Can You Forgive Me? released in 2008. The film is centered on the true story of Israel, an author that experienced a peak in her career writing celebrity biographies but now finds herself in a slump. She hasn’t had a writing gig in a while, and her agent Marjorie (Jane Curtin) won’t return her phone calls. So she doesn’t have a job in the only field she knows, and to make matters worse, her beloved cat has fallen ill, she can’t make payments on her dreary apartment, and her former partner, Elaine (Anna Deavere Smith), doesn’t feel like picking her up anymore when she’s down. The movie trailer that shows Israel trying

Pick

to sell used books at a local bookstore, only to be given a couple measly bucks and told that one of her authored books is on clearance, is the perfect example of one of her lowest points in the film. Part of her downfall is that she doesn’t care about making appearances or mingling at parties to get her name out there. In the process of figuring out her next venture, an idea literally falls on her lap. While doing research, a letter written by jack-of-all-trades Fanny Brice (she was a comedian, actress, and singer) falls out of a book. Israel figures she could make a pretty penny on her find, but the local bookstore only hands over $75, saying it would be worth more if it were juicer. She finds that there is a lucrative market for this kind of memorabilia in bookstores but the more interesting the letter, the more it’s worth. Naturally, Israel uses her talent to embellish more than 400 letters from prominent figures. She believes she’s on a new literary streak, a talent in her eyes, until one of her new ventures captures the attention of the FBI. In order to avoid being caught for fraud, she enlists her only friend, Jack Hock (Richard Grant), who’s couch surfing and ready to do anything. The hardest part to watch in the film was when Israel believed she hadn’t done anything wrong with her fake letters; in fact, she believed she contributed to literature with her style of writing. The film really captures the essence of the rise and fall of Israel and the destruction of a friendship. This is Heller’s second go at directing a film and it’s riveting from start to finish as the audience

is immediately engaged with the grumpy alcoholic that is Israel. Instead of giving us a character to love or connect with, we’re given someone who is at her wits’ end, and who we eventually feel some sort of compassion for. I was definitely surprised with Melissa McCarthy’s performance as Israel, as she delivered a character I didn’t know she could. I’m so used to McCarthy playing the same forgettable role—Life of the Party, The Happytime Murders, Ghostbusters, The Boss, and the list could go on—that I didn’t know she could play a serious dramatic character. Israel is a no-nonsense defensive individual with a gloomy outlook on life, who really only shows some sort of emotion for her sick cat. That vulnerability is a perfect marriage of McCarthy’s performance and Heller’s directing guidance. I can’t say the end is happy or sad. It feels like the limbo that the film started with, and it’s left me wanting to learn more about Israel and what happened after her fabrication escapades. —Karen Garcia

The chemistry between Hill and Stone is completely lacking throughout the series, but it makes complete sense. The characters aren’t supposed to be attracted to one another because they understand each other and want to help each other out; they’re meant to be friends. Really, my biggest takeaway is that the human mind is a dangerous and complex maze unique to every individual, too complicated to navigate alone.

THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB: A NEW DRAGON TATTOO STORY

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Rent it Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre (ends 11/22), Galaxy, Park Co-writer and director Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe) helms this new installation into the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo franchise, this time around with Claire Foy taking on the role of feminist hacker Lisbeth Salander and Sverrir Gudnason as investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist. As they sort through spies, cybercriminals, and corrupt government officials, their investigation takes them back to where Lisbeth began with her own sister Camilla Salander (Sylvia Hoeks). This is a decidedly grim affair shot in variations of gray. Repressive and relentless, the story begins with a set

piece of Lisbeth exacting revenge on a serial woman beater. After stringing him up by his feet, she shows she means business by using a stun gun on his genitals. She drains his bank accounts (she’s a master hacker remember?), giving 20 percent to the women he beat and the rest to his wife, who escapes bloodied but with her toddler. The scene’s only point is to remind viewers that Lisbeth is a badass out to right wrongs. What follows is less about a feminist railing against patriarchy and misogyny and more of a high-tech thriller about another programmer, Frans Balder (Stephen Merchant), who’s built a program that can commandeer and control any nation’s weapons systems and was commissioned by the United States. He realizes his program is an abomination and is too powerful for any country to wield, so he hires Lisbeth to cyber-steal it. This sets in motion a complicated story that includes American operative Ed Needham (Lakeith Stanfield), Swedish official Gabriella Grane (Synnøve Macody Lund), and a mysterious criminal organization called the Spiders, that seems to be headed by Lisbeth’s supposedly dead sister Camilla. Despite the blanket of dread covering the story, there’s some fun to be had. Watching Lisbeth outsmart her various opponents is fun, and Balder’s gifted son, August (Christopher Convery), ups the emotional ante. It’s also interesting listening to Lisbeth converse with various characters, such as her lover Sofia (Andreja Pejic). She has no interest in protecting Sofia’s feelings. Americans lie or soften to protect others’ feelings, but not Lisbeth. She’s essentially humorless. Fans of the books will probably feel like this new story is off base and that Clair Foy’s Lisbeth Salander doesn’t feel true to novelist Stieg Larsson’s vision. They’re right, and the source material is so beloved that any reboot would suffer by comparison. If you like these kids of films, hit a matinee, but for me this is worthy of a rental.

Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Co-directors Yarrow Cheney (The Secret Life of Pets) and Scott Mosier helm this animated adaptation of the classic Dr. Seuss story, narrated by Pharrell Williams, about a grumpy curmudgeon, the Grinch (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), planning to ruin Whoville’s Christmas. Along the way, the Grinch encounters various inhabitants of the town including Cindy-Lou Who (Cameron Seely); her mother, Donna Who (Rashida Jones); and Mr. Bricklebaum (Kenan Thompson). I never thought we would ever get another feature-length version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Didn’t we already stretch the short story to its limits with the Jim Carrey iteration? I just hope the next one is a Christmas horror film akin to Krampus, or better yet an entire trilogy helmed by hobbiteer Peter Jackson (if anyone knows how to carve multiple three-hour films from one single book, it’s not him). If this Grinch brings anything new to the table, it’s the fact that Cumberbatch is by far the most uncharacteristically clean and relatively normal (by human standards) Grinch we’ve ever seen on screen. Not saying that’s a bad thing, it’s just different. He’s still grumpy and mean, but nothing he does warrants his “stink, stank, stunk” description found in the lyrics of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” The song, a holiday favorite since its debut in the original 1966 animated Grinch adaptation, is covered by Tyler the Creator for the new film and can be heard over a montage of the Grinch getting out of bed,

Get Out!

A relaxing day of learning to paint

S

o this column is called “Get Out,” but the weekend after the election, I decide to stay in and turn one small corner of my apartment into an art studio. For the last month or so, I’ve become engrossed in a new hobby: learning to paint. As a kid, I spent a lot of time doodling and drawing, even taking some art class electives in high school. Through all that time, though, I never really took the plunge and put down my pencils and ink-pens for a brush and canvas. In the ensuing years, I put art aside and took up writing, a creative passion that I was fortunate enough to turn into a career. This year, I found myself looking for something creative to do as a hobby outside of writing. Artistic stagnation, if left unchecked, curdles into boredom, lethargy, or worse. And so, with some encouragement from my fiancée, I went wild at an art store and nabbed some paints, brushes, and canvases, and made a promise to myself that I would churn out a couple of paintings each weekend for the sheer enjoyment of it. After generously covering one corner of the living

room with a plastic drop cloth, thus preserving the carpet and security deposit on the apartment, I set up the easel and acrylic paints. I open a cold beer, put on some music, and I am ready to tackle my first painting of the day. A few weeks ago I’d purchased a copy of Learn to Paint in Acrylics with 50 Small Paintings by Mark Daniel Nelson. The book is supposed to teach you the basics by having you copy 50 very small paintings on little 5-by-5 inch canvases. I’d committed myself to painting all 50 tiny pieces over the next few months. Today I’m on No. 2: a simple abstracted landscape. The challenge of this painting, so the book says, is to mix the limited palette of paints to varying hues. As usual, my results are far from perfect. Some colors are off, and lines and brush strokes could be cleaner. Still, I’m happy with the overall result. With my more serious attempt finished, I decide to reward myself with painting something out of my own head for fun. On a larger FREE FORM Learning and practicing traditional painting techniques is canvas, I spend a fun, but sometimes you just have to let lose and paint whatever weird little more than thing comes into your head … like this weird green sailor dude. an hour painting a cartoonish looking sailor.

It’s hard to let go and accept that you won’t green skin, because why not? and can’t be perfect at something immediately.

should belong to the people. Only 100 percent, total freedom will do. Take his new idea, which may or may not become a hit: Doughnuts á la mode, with different flavors of gelato. Because why not add a dollop of ice cream onto your Butterfinger and rainbow sprinkle butterscotch chocolate doughnut? It’s a free country. “Even our icings are switched up every few weeks,” Morrow adds. “From mango, guava, or Thai tea icing, we’re always trying to keep our creativity up.” For this reason, you’ll always hear three lovely little words uttered at Downtown Donut Factory, 365 days a year: “We’ve got that!” ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain is prefers maple and bacon bits, but is up for anything.

H AYLEY’S BITES GIFTABLES Just say no to commercial crap: With so many artisan products made right here on the Central Coast, there is no reason you need to look far to find crafty culinary gifts! Just in time for the holidays, the Nov. 23 Holiday Craft Bazaar features local arts, crafts, and handmade culinary goods from regional purveyors. Visit the variety of booths stationed in Paso Robles Downtown City Park and search for that hard-to-find gift you’ve been looking for. Best of all, the event, held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. is totally free … Mark your calendar for this shopping and sipping spectacular and you’ll be on the fast track to tinsel town: SLO Brew is hosting the third biannual Rock the Vine Craft Wine Market on Dec. 9 from noon to 4 p.m. at The Rock. Boutique wineries and area cider producers will showcase their products (and you can shop till you drop). Expect more than 20 winemakers and two cideries on hand to pour for a crowd of approximately 300 guests. The event was started by two Cal Poly seniors and only seems to grow year after year, so reserve your ticket early. For tickets, go to slobrew.com/events.

NEWS NIBS We all scream! McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams, a Santa Barbara-based ice cream company that uses organic ingredients, will open a new shop on Monterey Street in San Luis Obispo. The business also boasts locations in Los Angeles, Los Feliz, and Studio City— and has garnered plenty of fans across the West Coast and the country (this food writer is a mega fan, to be sure) … Apparently Atascadero loves dinosaurs as much as you did when you were 6 years old! A new dinosaur-themed wine bar is slated to open on Entrada Avenue, and we are freaking out about the idea of fine wine and fossils. Stand by for more details and T-Rex sightings … Pacifica Hotels has announced the opening of The Kinney hotel in San Luis Obispo, which also features a restaurant geared toward the Cal Poly set. Leroy’s serves up grub like a strawberry Nutella croissants, “hangover steak and eggs,” chicken and waffles, smoked bacon mac and cheese, and more (learn more at thekinneyslo.com).

EAT TOGETHER They feed our community; let’s brighten their hearts: You may already know that last month, an electrical fire started on the second floor of 1255 Las Tablas Road in Templeton. But did you know that right below is the location of the nonprofit organization The Wellness Kitchen and Resource Center? Thanks to local firefighters, the building remains; however, The Wellness Kitchen has experienced significant smoke and water damage and needs help. You can make a donation, learn about a Nov. 29 fundraiser dinner, and keep these volunteers cooking at thewkrc.org … Nov. 17 is the fourth annual Taco Day on Traffic Way! This Atascadero tradition will no doubt be filled with salsa, cilantro, and good vibes. Head downtown from 1 to 4 p.m. and shop and eat your way down Traffic Way. Expect music, prizes, and family fun (plus, vote for your favorite taco!) Come hungry (learn more at atascadero.org). ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain thinks tacos can probably lead to world peace. She can be reached at hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

H AYLEY’S P ICKS Toast to your crazy uncle

So, some of the people you’re technically related to are coming into town for the holidays. I’m not saying this should cause you to drink, but at some point you probably will want to. Instead of making a scene and locking yourself in a closet with the cooking sherry, why not take the whole gang down to Calwise Spirits Co. in Paso Robles, where, on Saturday, Nov. 17, you can check out an open house celebration rife with boozy delights? This special event will feature free tours of the new distillery with behindthe-scenes looks at their fermentation, distillation, and aging practices as well as complimentary guided tastings of five fab spirits. Tours will begin promptly on the hour, every hour, between 12 and 5 p.m., so don’t freak out about getting everyone in the minivan on time—that’s not ever going to happen anyway. The shindig also marks the beginning of the distillery’s new spirits and cocktail club, offering a subscription to recurring packages of exclusive releases and unique membership benefits (hello, world’s best/easiest holiday gift). Speaking of holiday flavors, the distillery’s newly released orange liqueur is perfectly crafted for winter-themed cocktails. Bottles will be available for purchase at a special discounted price, so grab a few for yourself, too. Feeling frazzled with a case of early onset holiday blues? Put down your nephew’s slimy fidget spinner and enjoy craft cocktail specials paired with an updated seasonal small plates menu. Yum! Remember, you can always “unfollow” your crazy uncle’s political rants on Facebook, but you cannot unfollow his face. Well, at least not in 2018. Here’s to next year’s technological advancements! Located at 3340 Ramada Drive in Paso Robles. For more information, call (805) 369-2662 or go to calwisespirits.com. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain loves all her uncles equally.

COUNTY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING & BUILDING NOTICE OF TENTATIVE ACTION / PUBLIC HEARING WHO:

(March 21-April 19): Interior designer Dorothy Draper said she wished there were a single word that meant “exciting, frightfully important, irreplaceable, deeply satisfying, basic, and thrilling, all at once.” I wonder if such a word exists in the Chamicuro language spoken by a few Peruvians or the Sarsi tongue spoken by the Tsuu T’ina tribe in Alberta, Canada. In any case, I’m pleased to report that for the next few weeks, many of you Aries people will embody and express that rich blend of qualities. I have coined a new word to capture it: tremblissimo.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): According to my astrological intuition, you’re entering a phase when you will derive special benefit from these five observations by poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau. 1. “There are truths that you can only say after having won the right to say them.” 2. “True realism consists in revealing the surprising things that habit keeps covered and prevents us from seeing.” 3. “What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.” 4. “You should always talk well about yourself! The word spreads around, and in the end, no one remembers where it started.” 5. “We shelter an angel within us. We must be the guardians of that angel.”

County of San Luis Obispo Planning Department Hearing.

WHEN: Friday, December 21, 2018 at 09:00 AM. All items are advertised for 09:00 AM. To verify agenda placement, please call the Department of Planning & Building at (805) 781-5600. WHAT: A request by Michael Dolny and Alabaster Inc. for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00069) to establish an indoor cultivation of up to 22,000 square feet of cannabis on a portion of the 31.77-acre project site. The project includes construction of a new 46,200- square-foot greenhouse, a 13,740-square-foot head house building, a 3,022-squarefoot administrative building, and a 53,400-gallon steel water storage tank. Operations would also include processing ancillary to the on-site cultivation, including harvesting, drying, curing, and trimming of cannabis, as well as storage, packaging and labeling. All processing activities would occur within the greenhouse and head house areas. The project would employ up to 50 people and would operate seven days per week between the hours of 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM. A modification from the parking standards set forth in Section 22.18.050.C.1 of the County’s Land Use Ordinance is requested in order to reduce the required number of spaces from 126 to 35. The project site is located at 502 Albert Way, Arroyo Grande in the South County Planning Area. Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on November 14, 2018 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address biological resources and are included as conditions of approval. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning. org. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposed Environmental Document should submit a written statement and/or speak at the public hearing. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s). County File Number: DRC2018-00069 Supervisorial District: District 4 Assessor Parcel Number(s): 091-181-001 Date Accepted: 08/15/2018 WHERE: The meeting will be held in the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 1055 Monterey Street, Room #D170, County Government Center, San Luis Obispo, CA. The Board of Supervisors Chambers are located on the corner of Santa Rosa and Monterey Streets. At the meeting all interested persons may express their views for or against, or to change the proposal. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION A copy of the staff report will be made available on the Planning Department website at www.sloplanning.org. You may also contact Cassidy McSurdy, Project Manager, in the Department of Planning and Building at the address below or by telephone at (805) 781-5600. TO REQUEST A PUBLIC HEARING This matter is tentatively scheduled to appear on the consent agenda, which means that it and any other items on the consent agenda can be acted upon by the hearing officer with a single motion. An applicant or interested party may request a public hearing on this matter. To do so, send a letter to this office at the address below or send an email to pdh@co.slo.ca.us by Friday, December 14, 2018 at 4:30 PM. The letter or email must include the language “I would like to request a hearing on DRC2018-00069.” If you challenge this matter in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this public notice or in written correspondence delivered to the appropriate authority at or before the public hearing. Nicole Retana, Secretary, Planning Department Hearing

(May 21-June 20): Adolescence used to be defined as a phase that lasted from ages 13 to 19. But scientists writing in the journal The Lancet say that in modern culture, the current span is from ages 10 to 24. Puberty comes earlier now, in part because of shifts in eating habits and exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals. At the same time, people hold onto their youth longer because they wait a while before diving into events associated with the initiation into adulthood, like getting married, finishing education, and having children. Even if you’re well past 24, Gemini, I suggest you revisit and reignite your juvenile stage in the coming weeks. You need to reconnect with your wild innocence. You’ll benefit from immersing yourself in memories of coming of age. Be 17 or 18 again, but this time armed with all you have learned since.

CANCER

now have more ability than usual to neutralize its obsessive and debilitating effects on you. That could empower you to make a good decision about the relationship you’ll have with it in the future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “I had to learn very early not to limit myself due to others’ limited imaginations,” testifies Libran astronaut Mae Jemison. She adds, “I have learned these days never to limit anyone else due to my own limited imagination.” Are those projects on your radar, Libra? I hope so. You now have extra power to resist being shrunk or hobbled by others’ images of you. You also have extra power to help your friends and loved ones grow and thrive as you expand your images of them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The U.S. is the world’s top exporter of food. In second place is the Netherlands, which has 0.4 percent as much land as the U.S. How do Dutch farmers accomplish this miraculous feat? In part because of their massive greenhouses, which occupy vast areas of nonurbanized space. Another key factor is their unprecedented productivity, which dovetails with a commitment to maximum sustainability. For instance, they produce 20 tons of potatoes per acre, compared with the global average of 9. And they do it using less water and pesticides. In my long-term outlook for you Scorpios, I see you as having a metaphorical similarity to Dutch farmers. During the next 12 months, you have the potential to make huge impacts with your focused and efficient efforts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The world is like a dropped pie most of the time,” writes author Elizabeth Gilbert. “Don’t kill yourself trying to put it back together. Just grab a fork and eat some of it off the floor. Then carry on.” From what I can tell about the state of your life, Sagittarius, the metaphorical pie has indeed fallen onto the metaphorical floor. But it hasn’t been there so long that it has spoiled. And the floor is fairly clean, so the pie won’t make you sick if you eat it. My advice is to sit down on the floor and eat as much as you want. Then carry on.

(June 21-July 22): Cancerian baseball pitcher Satchel Paige had a colorful career characterized by creative showmanship. On some occasions, he commanded his infielders to sit down and loll on the grass behind him, whereupon he struck out three batters in a row—ensuring no balls were hit to the spots vacated by his teammates. Paige’s success came in part because of his wide variety of tricky pitches, described by author Buck O’Neil as “the bat-dodger, the two-hump blooper, the four-day creeper, the dipsy-do, the Little Tom, the Long Tom, the bee ball, the wobbly ball, the hurry-up ball and the nothin’ ball.” I bring this to your attention, Cancerian, because now is an excellent time for you to amp up your charisma and use all your tricky pitches.

CAPRICORN

LEO

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Miracles come to those who risk defeat in seeking them,” writes author Mark Helprin. “They come to those who have exhausted themselves completely in a struggle to accomplish the impossible.” Those descriptions could fit you well in the coming weeks, but with one caveat. You’ll have no need to take on the melodramatic, almost desperate mood Helprin seems to imply is essential. Just the opposite, in fact. Yes, risk defeat and be willing to exhaust yourself in the struggle to accomplish the impossible, but do so in a spirit of exuberance, motivated by the urge to play.

(July 23-Aug. 22): “Everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head,” writes fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss. “Always. All the time. We build ourselves out of that story.” So what’s your story, Leo? The imminent future will be an excellent time to get clear about the dramatic narrative you weave. Be especially alert for demoralizing elements in your tale that may not in fact be true, and that therefore you should purge. I think you’ll be able to draw on extra willpower and creative flair if you make an effort to reframe the story you tell yourself so that it’s more accurate and uplifting.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In describing a man she fell in love with, author Elizabeth Gilbert wrote that he was both “catnip and kryptonite to me.” If you’ve spent time around cats, you understand that catnip can be irresistible to them. As for kryptonite: It’s the one substance that weakens the fictional superhero Superman. Is there anything in your life that resembles Gilbert’s paramour? A place or situation or activity or person that’s both catnip and kryptonite? I suspect you

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Novelist Anita Desai writes, “Isn’t it strange how life won’t flow, like a river, but moves in jumps, as if it were held back by locks that are opened now and then to let it jump forward in a kind of flood?” I bring this to your attention, Capricorn, because I suspect that the locks she refers to will soon open for you. Events may not exactly flow like a flood, but I’m guessing they will at least surge and billow and gush. That could turn out to be nerve-racking and strenuous, or else fun and interesting. Which way it goes will depend on your receptivity to transformation.

AQUARIUS

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Never invoke the gods unless you really want them to appear,” warned author G. K. Chesterton. “It annoys them very much.” My teachers have offered me related advice. Don’t ask the gods to intervene, they say, until you have done all you can through your own efforts. Furthermore, don’t ask the gods for help unless you are prepared to accept their help if it’s different from what you thought it should be. I bring these considerations to your attention, Pisces, because you currently meet all these requirements. So I say go right ahead and seek the gods’ input and assistance. ∆
