SLO, Grover Beach raise recycling rates

A

s communities across the U.S. grapple with China’s recent pullout from the recycling market, local cities are raising their curbside waste service rates to adjust. During the week of June 17, the cities of San Luis Obispo and Grover Beach approved garbage/recycling rate increases of 14 and 10 percent, respectively. They join Pismo Beach, Atascadero, and, soon, other SLO County cities in raising rates for the waste services provided by private companies. In a June 18 presentation to the SLO City Council, SLO utilities official Mychal Boerman said more than half of the rate increase is to address the growing costs for San Luis Garbage Company to sort unrecyclable items from recycling bins. Last year, China began restricting imports of mixed paper and most plastics, and the new domestic recycling vendors are much stricter about recycling contamination levels, Boerman said. “It requires us to slow down our recycling lines, hire more people to sort through that material, and it’s just driving our costs up,” Boerman said. “That’s really the driving force behind this rate increase. ... It’s really a nationwide crisis almost.” SLO’s new rates, which will show up as a $2 to $6 monthly increase on residential garbage bills, take effect on June 19. Grover Beach’s 10 percent increase will take effect July 1. That increase was proposed by South County Sanitary, a private company that provides solid-waste collection and disposal services, including recycling services, under a franchise agreement with the city. According to a staff report, the increase is also a consequence of rising costs associated with processing of recycled material, as well as increased vehicle costs, increased

SLO County puts hemp industry on hold

passed a commercial hemp moratorium at its June 18 meeting. County supervisors voted 4-1 to adopt an urgency ordinance prohibiting all local hemp cultivation, with exceptions for research grows and about a dozen others that already received approvals from the SLO County Department of Agriculture. All other hopeful hemp producers—including a few dozen who submitted applications, paid a $900 fee, and were awaiting approval—are now stopped in their tracks as the county goes to the drawing board for a permanent hemp ordinance. “For us, it’s about reducing conflict and ensuring compatibility,” 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold said. County officials say the moratorium buys them time to craft hemp regulations that will address setbacks, zoning, parcel sizes, and other requirements for hemp grows. “There are some problematic things with [hemp],” 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton said. “I don’t think you can just put it willy-nilly anywhere.” SLO County began accepting hemp applications with few stipulations in May, following the first-ever rollout of state hemp regulations. It prompted community concerns about potential impacts like odor, compatibility, and cannabis cross-pollination. Prior to the meeting, several Edna Valley residents and businesses submitted letters

expressing support for the hemp moratorium. The letters indicated there was at least one active hemp grow in the area. In one letter, Bob Schiebelhut, president of the Edna Valley Growers Mutual Water Company, wrote that Edna Valley vintners were “extremely concerned” about how an unregulated hemp market would impact the valley’s vineyards and tasting rooms. “Hemp can be grown to the edge of an adjacent agricultural parcel without regard to the effect of hemp’s noxious ‘skunk’ odors,” Schiebelhut said in the letter. “So our tasting rooms are to shut down for weeks during the flowering season due to foul odors? ... The unregulated growing of hemp in the Edna Valley is a real threat to existing ag.” The concerns out of Edna Valley caused typically pro-cannabis 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill to support the urgency ordinance— which required four votes to pass. “I need to be responsive to my growers in Edna Valley,” Hill said. “I’m very conflicted and very cautiously looking at this.” Several local groups, industry members, and residents spoke out in strong opposition to the moratorium, including the SLO County Farm Bureau and the Coalition for Labor, Agriculture, and Business. Opponents called the ordinance an unnecessary knee-jerk reaction to a promising NEWS continued page 6

new industry. “Many hours of planning and many dollars have been spent by law-abiding farmers to prepare lands,” said Frank Brown, a registered local hemp grower. “There is no urgency here. We don’t need a moratorium.” Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson, the lone dissenting vote, called the policy a “stretching” of the board’s urgency ordinance powers, if not their “outright abuse.” “We don’t have evidence of harm,” Gibson said. “What we have is quite a lot of speculation and fear.” Gibson also warned that the moratorium could stay in effect for longer than many anticipate. On July 16, the board will vote whether to lift the moratorium or extend it for another year. By then, county officials indicated they’ll only have a framework for a long-term hemp ordinance—but nothing ready for adoption. “In 45 days, none of the fundamental questions in play here are going to be anywhere close to being answered,” Gibson said. —Peter Johnson

Cal Poly parking program goes digital for fall 2019

Cal Poly’s Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) is launching a license plate recognition software that will be fully implemented by fall 2019, with the goal of eliminating parking permits. Matt Lazier, a Cal Poly spokesperson, said students would register their license plate and vehicle make and model into the online parking system when purchasing their virtual parking permits. The license plate recognition software then combines this information with the individual’s payment and generates a virtual permit linked to that vehicle’s license plate number. “Transportation and Parking Services employees will be equipped with scanners that read license plates on parked cars and indicate whether a vehicle is parked legally, allowing for efficient enforcement throughout the university’s parking lots,” Lazier said. The license plate number will automatically get checked in the database to verify the permit and whether the vehicle is in the right parking lot. If the license plate isn’t associated with a valid virtual permit or if the vehicle is parked in an unauthorized location, the vehicle

will receive a citation. The cost for the fall 2019 student virtual permits hasn’t yet been finalized, but Lazier said the new program won’t affect the prices. Resident and commuter students will have a chance to choose their preferred parking lot with a lottery that begins on Aug. 16. Students put their name on waitlists based on the lot priority they choose. Each lot will be awarded via lottery and the students will have a deadline to purchase. Any remaining permits are issued via lottery until all of the permits are sold. Lazier said the system technology and equipment will cost $116,000, but TAPS spends about $60,000 per year on plastic permits, third-party mailing of permits, and administrative costs to process and replace lost and stolen permits. “These costs will be reduced and eventually eliminated with virtual permits,” he said. The university also anticipates that customer service will be improved, as the software will simplify and streamline the permit purchase and renewal processes. Guest parking won’t change; the option to use the mobile parking system for meters and event areas or purchasing permits at campus pay stations will still be available. Cal Poly got on board with the technology because it reduces waste in accordance with the university’s commitment to zero waste and campus sustainability. “It eliminates disposal of expired and unused plastic permits. It reduces paper, envelopes, and ink used in permit production and distribution. It reduces delivery of permits and postage,” Lazier said. —Karen Garcia

Supervisors look to shake up Paso groundwater rules

As SLO County prepares to extend regulations that restrict water use out of the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin, supervisors are requesting policy changes that they say will help protect residents and small farmers. Current county rules require farmers planting new crops with more than 5 acrefeet of water demand per year to offset their water use. At least two supervisors want that “de minimis” threshold to

increase to 25 acre-feet per year. “We don’t want hundreds of people to plant up a storm,” 1st District Supervisor John Peschong said at a June 18 meeting, “however if you’re a small family farm, you’ve been [on property for] 70 years, you should have a right to farm. I think that, to me, is the core of this.” Revisions like Peschong’s are being introduced as the county looks to keep its regulations intact. When North County water leaders adopt a sustainability plan for the Paso basin in January 2020, it planned to supplant the offset ordinance. But since the elements of that plan may take months or years to materialize, county officials now want to preserve the status quo into 2020. The Board of Supervisors will vote on an extension of the ordinance sometime before November of this year. In addition to the request to increase de minimis exemptions from 5 acre-feet to 25 acre-feet, supervisors want updated water duty factors—and the inclusion of more crops, like hemp. They also asked for a ban on a practice of offsetting new water use with off-site “credits,” and to allow farmers to fallow land without losing their rights to irrigate a new crop. The supervisors weren’t all in agreement about the proposed revisions. Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson voiced concerns that too many rule tweaks or exemptions could end up harming the already-stressed basin. He called the idea to allow 25 acre-feet of de minimis farming “a real mistake.” “We need to keep in mind the overarching situation,” Gibson said. “The basin is being overdrafted. It’s being pumped well past its safe yield. ... We have to look very carefully at, are these small amendments or large amendments?” —Peter Johnson

On June 12, Oceano was the last of the Five Cities Fire Authority trio—which includes Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach—to approve a second amendment to its joint powers agreement that will fund fire services for another year. The amendment also established a backup plan if Oceano leaves the agreement due to a lack of funds. Karen White, vice president of the Oceano Community Services District’s board of directors, said the district’s duty is to supply emergency, medical, and fire services to Oceano. “What’s going to happen a year from now? That is then, and this is now, and we’ve got to move forward now to keep fire trucks rolling,” White said. The second amendment established a new funding formula for the joint service slated to go into effect for the 2019-20 fiscal year. It increases Oceano’s contribution to $1.1 million, a $75,765 increase; Arroyo Grande will pay nearly $2.6 million, a $147,187 increase; Grover Beach will put forth $2 million, a $71,422 increase. Under the current funding model, Oceano only has two fire personnel, while Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach each have three. In order to afford three, Oceano is placing a measure on the 2020 ballot to generate additional revenue for their share in the joint services agreement. If the measure doesn’t pass, Oceano will cease to be a member of the Fire Authority on June 30, 2021. The amendment creates a pathway for Oceano’s resignation that will be followed by a 16-month “wind-down period” to distribute assets and payment liabilities. If Oceano leaves the joint powers agreement, the new funding formula will not go into effect. “Until the community decides what they want, we need to continue. After that, only after that tax, are we going to be able to really decide if they don’t want the Five Cities Fire Authority and then what kind of service they’re going to have because there are many options,” White said. “There is no way to get out of paying for fire service for the community of Oceano, and Cal Fire is not a cheaper option.” Δ —Karen Garcia

Raiders all-star

Pro footballer Dan Conners will be remembered during a June 23 celebration of life at the SLO Elks Lodge

PHOTO COURTESY OF RYAN COPELAND

GENTLE GIANT Seven years ago, Dan Conners celebrated his 70th birthday at the SLO Elks Lodge, where the public is welcome on June 23 for the pro footballer’s celebration of life. Conners died on April 28 in San Luis Obispo.

F

or pro football players in the 1960s and early 1970s, few things were as terrifying as seeing Raiders middle linebacker Dan Conners coming at you. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound crusher had a knack for finding the hole—or making the hole. Conners’ 15 career pass interceptions remain the most ever by a Raiders linebacker, and his two touchdowns and 16 fumble recoveries are the second most in Raiders’ history. In 1967, he snagged a fumble for a 73-yard touchdown. In ’69, he nabbed an interception and ran 75 yards for a another touchdown. He’s also the only Raiders linebacker to make it to three Pro Bowls. Many agree he’s the best middle linebacker the Raiders ever had. Conners, a San Luis Obispo resident for more than 30 years, died on April 28. He was 77 years old, and this Sunday, June 23, friends, family, former players, and the public will gather at the SLO Elks Lodge to celebrate his life starting at 1 p.m. Conners was introduced to SLO Town when his son came to play football at Cal Poly for a couple of seasons. By this time, Conners—who, after his playing career ended, became an assistant coach for the San Francisco 49ers and a scout for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—was working as a scout for the Raiders. He wanted to

invest in his new community, so he bought Bull’s Tavern and later McCarthy’s Irish Pub, enlisting Virgil Walle to run both watering holes. He and Walle had been friends for 50 years when Conners passed. “We met at a July 1969 exhibition game against the Packers,” Walle recalled, “and I got to know him. He was a loyal friend, extremely comical and bright—just a kind person, a funny guy. He loved to bust people’s balls. I always told him, ‘I think you’ll make it to heaven, but you’ll probably have to stay 40,000 years in purgatory to make up for all the ballbusting you’ve done.’” Conners was a longtime member of the SLO Elks Lodge, and fellow member Rich Viar remembers his bone dry humor. “He had the driest sense of humor of anyone I’ve ever known,” Viar laughed. “We were up in Ferndale for the mule races, where Dan would go every year. [Fellow Elks member] Chris Jackson and I took Dan and all the boys from the lodge up there, and Dan decided to book rooms for the next year, so he walked over to the desk clerk, who told Dan they were already booked. Dan said, ‘Well, that’s OK. I was thinking about buying this place anyway, and the first thing I’ll do is fire you.’ The clerk was dumbfounded.” By all accounts, Conners was a private and humble man. He didn’t like to toot his own horn and tell people who he was, but if they knew about his pro football career, he was always generous with his time. Walle remembers helping Conners move homes, and Walle came across a box and pulled out an old letter in a cheap

dollar-store frame: “The letter talked about Super Bowl II and mentioned how a certain play Dan completed was ‘the finest linebacker play’ the letter writer had ever seen. That letter writer was [Green Bay Packers and later Washington Redskins head coach] Vince Lombardi. Dan just shrugged and said, ‘Oh, just leave it in there.’” Bill Hales, who runs Ash Management, which eventually bought Bull’s and McCarthy’s from Conners, remembers him as a tremendous mentor. Hales started working at Bull’s as a 20-year-old, first as the janitor and later as the doorman. “Dan had a hilarious wit,” Hales said, “and he was also a father figure to me. He’d pull me out of the bar and say, ‘Let’s take walk,’ and we’d talk about life, what my plans were, what other interests I had. He always had the best stories, and when he moved to SLO, a lot of the muckymucks wanted to get to know him because he was an ex-Raider.” Conners’ fame as a football player was never something he wanted to capitalize on. He was friendly to everyone—the guy who would sit at the end of the bar and regale you with stories, good naturedly bust your balls, but treat everyone with respect. “When he owned the bars, it was about creating a family,” Hales said. “He created laughter, which at its heart is what a bar should be. He was just a down-to-earth guy. I really miss him.” ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

picture is more than just the image it portrays. It encompasses the way the photographer who captured it sees light and dark, angles and lines, animate and inanimate. Each snapshot is as unique as the person holding the camera. Since 1994, New Times Media Group has invited local photographers to show us life from their point of view in our annual Winning Images contest. This year 491 photos were submitted, which our judges narrowed down to three winners each in

eight categories and seven honorable mentions. Every entry also came in with a $5 fee, which will be rolled back into prize money for the winners, who also receive awards from the contest’s sponsors. Although you can see the winning images from 2019 on the following pages, you can also view them on the wall at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art through June 23. ∆ Contact Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

RECOGNIZED On June 11, Lesly Diaz (right), 17, a student at Grizzly Youth Academy, received the President’s Gold Volunteer Service Award and National Daily Point of Light Award for her volunteer work helping animals in crisis.

She knows you love her... This anniversary, make sure she knows how much.

BY PETER JOHNSON

Ready to serve

F

rom the steps of the state Capitol to the front lines of a wildfire, 17-yearold Santa Maria resident Lesly Diaz’s passion for helping animals has led her to several unique places. Since she was in sixth grade, Diaz has worked as a volunteer for Central Coast nonprofit DogE911, where she’s learned all about disaster response and triage for pets and animals. “Growing up I loved animals and I always wanted to be a vet,” Diaz told New Times. “All during junior high I was in the [DogE911] program and doing the events. I just started to be more involved.” Diaz’s involvement and interest only grew with time, and she’s since poured hundreds of hours into the organization— an emergency training, prevention care, and disaster preparedness program. Those experiences included taking trips to Sacramento to lobby state legislators to pass animal safety legislation. That helped Diaz overcome her shyness. “I was not a good public speaker, but this program helped me be more open for public speaking and not to be shy,” Diaz said. The most intense volunteer experience for Diaz was when she traveled to Butte County in 2018 to assist victims during the Camp Fire—California’s most destructive wildfire in history. Diaz and DogE911 founder Genete Bowen stayed in a hotel where several victims from the devastated town of Paradise had fled to. “It was horrible,” Diaz said. “Everything was just black. Everything was gone.” Diaz said the group volunteered at animal shelters where they fed, walked, and cared for dogs that were separated from their owners. They also helped people find clean clothes, food, and other supplies. “We were very busy,” Diaz said. “It was heartbreaking. I was 16 at the time seeing these animals and humans without a home.” During her teen years, Diaz said she made some decisions that sent her down a bad path. To correct her course, she enrolled in Grizzly Youth Academy, a National Guard charter school program in SLO for at-risk youth. Throughout those rough times, Diaz said she could always look to Bowen for mentorship.

“She was always there for me,” Diaz said. “She knows what I’ve been through. I appreciate all the work she’s done with me.” Now, as Diaz prepares to depart Grizzly Youth Academy, receive her high school diploma, and join the Army Reserve next fall, she’s being recognized for her volunteer efforts. On June 11, Diaz received the President’s Gold Volunteer Service Award for logging 459 volunteer hours at DogE911. She also received a National Daily Point of Light Award. “This is a very special honor,” Bowen said about Diaz’s awards. “Lesly has been a huge asset. She has grown a lot over the years under DogE911 and developed confidence, poise, and knowledge.” Diaz thanked her single mother, Blanca, for supporting her growth and success. “She was able to help me do all this, and it wasn’t easy her for,” Diaz said. “I appreciate all her support.”

Strength in compromise Finding common ground and hope for Santa Maria, ground zero for national controversy over immigration

C

ities are difficult to govern. They are not empowered, protected, or even recognized by the U.S. Constitution. They cannot print money or set interest rates. They cannot control the people and businesses that move into them, or move out. They sit between the rock and hard place of raising enough tax revenue to cover the municipal services that their constituents are ever demanding, without chasing residents and businesses away by raising taxes by too much. Cities are good places for leaders to be “damned if they do and damned if they don’t.” I have lived in Philadelphia and worked in and around the cities of Newark, Elizabeth, and Patterson, New Jersey. I’ve seen city administrations in these municipalities tested by fiscal crises, transit and sanitation strikes, persistent poverty, endemic housing abandonment, crumbling infrastructures, declining populations, high crime rates, and displacement of working class and impoverished residents through gentrification. These cities are larger and more complex than Santa Maria. Yet, their leaders have not faced what Santa Maria’s city administration is dealing with today: a virtual assault on the local political economy by the executive branch of our federal government. Santa Maria is at “ground zero” for our national controversy over immigration. During the Obama administration, ICE worksite enforcement inspections

HODIN

decimated the workforces of some of our long established and respectable farming enterprises in the Santa Maria Valley. Our local growers and shippers had already been experiencing labor shortages and were highly dependent on undocumented workers. The dismissal of hundreds of farmworkers by ICE worksite enforcement shook Santa Maria’s most important industry like an earthquake. Under the Trump administration, ICE worksite enforcement has stepped up its activities across the U.S. Fear of labor losses from more worksite inspections hangs heavy over the farming industry in our region. Moreover, playing upon people’s unfounded fears and prejudice to amass political power, President Trump errantly and unjustly disparages undocumented aliens, who constitute a sizable portion of Santa Maria’s hardworking and upright residents. Lack of an effective national immigration policy is also challenging Santa Maria’s housing policy. A local housing issue has arisen because of the federal H-2A visa program, which allows growers and farm labor contractors to bring in foreign workers for up to 10 months a year. The program was established in 1986 (https://fas.org/ sgp/crs/homesec/R44849.pdf ), but for decades few growers and labor contractors participated in it. Participation in the H-2A visa program is difficult and expensive. Among a plethora of requirements is the provision

Russell Hodin

18 • New Times • June 20 - June 27, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

of free housing for the guest workers, which must meet a number of standards. The cost-benefit calculus of employing guest farmworkers through H-2A visas shifted dramatically over the last several years in our region with the rising farm labor shortage, compounded by increased ICE worksite enforcement action. Growers and farm labor contractors now have little choice but to participate in the program. By 2017, the number of H-2A guest workers being housed in Santa Maria totaled approximately 1,700. This took city officials by surprise because few complaints had been filed over H-2A housing. Workers here on H-2A visas have proven to be well behaved and quiet residents. But a substantial number of H-2A guest workers in Santa Maria are residing in groups in single-family houses in residentially zoned neighborhoods. A long and divisive but relatively civil argument has ensued among residents and the agriculture industry on the appropriate placement of housing for H-2A guest workers in Santa Maria. Perhaps the greatest concern over H-2A housing is the conversion of existing residential properties into guest worker housing and the resulting increase in rents and diminishment of available affordable housing in Santa Maria. Many would categorize H-2A housing as another “no win” issue for the Santa Maria’s leadership. I take issue with that assessment, however, because of something that happened in the struggle over H-2A housing that shows promise for the city. It involves the agreement of two influential and talented leaders in the Santa Maria community.

Hazel Davalos, who leads the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) in our North County region, publicly expressed support for H-2A housing in Santa Maria—but she also urged City Council to adopt a tenant displacement compensation ordinance. The ordinance will assist residents who are required to move out of rented housing units when they are purchased and/or converted to accommodate H-2A guest workers. Owners of the properties would be required to pay a fee to tenants in the amount of three to four months’ rent to help them obtain another place to live. Claire Wineman, president of the Grower-Shipper Association of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties, has publicly supported Ms. Davalos’ tenant displacement compensation proposal, with a relaxing of the permitting of H-2A housing in medium density, residential neighborhoods. Davalos leads a coalition of grassroots interests in our region. It includes organized labor and also advocates for the rights of the least empowered workers in the city, including undocumented farm laborers. Yet, despite this commitment to worker rights, Davalos and her coalition have not lost sight of the need for the agriculture industry of Santa Maria to thrive. After all, it is this industry that provides so many of the city’s residents with a living. Wineman leads an association of more than 170 growers, produce shippers, labor contractors, and related businesses. Despite factors challenging the farming industry, including labor shortages and COMMENTARY continued page 19

decreasing water resources, Wineman and her association members have not lost sight of the needs of the Santa Maria community. After all, many of the association members call this community home, as do many of their employees. Davalos and Wineman found common ground on the need and placement of H-2A housing and how to help mitigate its unintended impact on residents of Santa Maria. Common ground is what Santa Maria must find more of. It is the place where the city will find strength to take its stand for the welfare of its people and economy—and push back against external forces that threaten them. ∆ Scott Fina is a Santa Maria resident.

Impeachment of Trump is a no-brainer

Articles of impeachment are based on treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct by officials, such as perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, unbecoming conduct, refusal to obey a lawful order,

chronic intoxication, and tax evasion. Trump cannot have committed treason because “treason” is defined narrowly and can only consist of aiding and abetting the enemy (he did) when the country is at war, as determined by Congress. Trump comes very close on this mark, but he does not pass it. Bribery? We have strong scents of political bribery from the Saudis, from Russia, and within the administration including “the kids” but, so far, we do not have full light on these suspicions and allegations. Perjury of oath? Absolutely. Abuse of authority? Absolutely. Intimidation? Absolutely. Misuse of assets? He has certainly tried, especially with the border wall. Failure to supervise? With the most corrupt administration ever, and multiple criminal convictions of folks from his campaign to his White House, Trump’s failure to supervise is demonstrable. Dereliction of duty? Absolutely and multiply—from Puerto Rico to the most recent shooting deaths, Trump is just not there. Unbecoming conduct? Is that a question? Refusal to obey a lawful order? Recently, Trump promised to refuse to obey a lawful order, and by obstructing Congress and the courts, he refuses to obey multiple lawful orders. Tax evasion? We shall see. Chronic intoxication? Only if you count Coca-Cola and “hamberders.” How can we NOT impeach a president who has committed almost every impeachable crime in the book? If the two other presidents—one forced to

Letters them a $4,500-a-year pay raise! Well, that is exactly what House Democrats are reported to be planning for the 2020 funding bills that would no longer block cost-of-living adjustments. Congress voted to freeze congressional salaries at $174,000 in 2009, and Republican leaders have struck down the automatic increases every year since. How is $174,000 a year not enough of a salary for members of Congress when it is more than three times the average American’s salary? And how does this pay raise fit into the Democrats’ socialistic Green New Deal? Our congressman, Salud Carbajal, a staunch supporter of the Green New Deal, needs to explain this to his voters. I suggest we all once again read George Orwell’s Animal Farm where it is clearly pointed out “some pigs are more equal than others” in that socialistic world! Phil Mordaunt San Luis Obispo

Rhetoric&Reason

early 50 years ago, I hopped in an old car and traveled across the country, landing in California. The old car (the beast) broke down in Boulder, Colorado, for two weeks when the oil pump failed and the engine froze, costing a good deal of the money I’d saved while in Asia. I wandered in the local mountains as mechanics did their magic, restoring the beast to life, which kindly lasted another few years. Three years away in an Asian war hadn’t changed much at home except my old boss had moved on. The new guy decided that returning veterans might pose a risk to kids, so he got a legal opinion and a loophole to deny re-employment rights. I had worked for the local parks department before enlisting and had ventured to City Hall to fill out an interest card for the police or fire department when the new guy hailed me to give me the good news. It was probably one of the best things to happen as it provided the motivation to move away as far as possible without swimming the Pacific. The trip across country was uneventful after Colorado, except that gas at one point cost only 19 cents a gallon, down from its normal 29 cents. A friend had relocated with his folks to the Nipomo Mesa and they offered me lodging for a few days in an old camper shell parked adjacent to his folks’ home. He was on a roofing job in Morro Bay, so the beast and I set out for the coast. I got lost, missing the turnoff to Morro Bay, and finally called back to Nipomo from a place called Paso Robles. My friend’s mom said go south on Highway 101 to Atascadero and take the Morro Road, Highway 41, turnoff to Morro Bay. I’m not sure what she said when she mentioned “Atas-ca-What?” but somehow I ended up in Morro Bay. Finding a job was next, and the first offer came from the railroad, off-loading 50,000 pounds of frozen fish near a tunnel at the grade. At 2 a.m., a bunch of us were hauling boxes of frozen fish at the Cuesta Grade railroad tunnel from a derailed freight car as railroad police looked on, growling about pilferers being dealt with severely. None of us were really that hungry for raw frozen fish. Our next foray was in a freight yard offloading other cargo, like furniture from a damaged freight car. Another great opportunity opened at a place called Diablo Canyon, walking a guard dog all night to ensure nobody made off with reactor parts in a maintenance yard. Since the average part weighed about 250 tons, I doubted that the dog would be much of a deterrent to anyone so inclined to pilfer anything weighing tons versus pounds. The most entertaining moments came when the mutt, with the rank of sergeant and making 25 cents more an hour than a patrolman (me), cornered a badger. That wasn’t going to turn out well for either of us, so after a frantic five minutes of snarling teeth, the mutt was convinced that there were better options in life than wrestling with a buzz saw of claws and teeth. A stroke of brilliance at that moment also motivated me to check out

the college my friend had mentioned. Cuesta College didn’t look like much at first glance. It had lots of mud and consisted of broken-down National Guard buildings with poor heating and no cooling, as I recall. My memory isn’t that good, but I do remember it was cold inside when it rained, as it did a lot in 1972. However, the price was right: $15 a semester plus books. With savings and $200 per month from the G.I. Bill, I could make rent, tuition and books, and a cup of coffee in the morning. Lunch was optional and dinner was creative, but with part-time work, all was well. The best part was the independence and sense that the future held hope. Also, did I forget to mention that California girls lived up to the expectations of the Beach Boys’ song, “California Girls”? I met my future wife, Roberta, at Cuesta; her long blond hair, green eyes, and a streak of independence made her incredibly interesting. We’ve gotten along well for the last 45 years of marriage. Someday, she

might even let me know I’m off probation. I mentioned that California held a sense of hope for the future. I’m not sure I could say that today. Gas is at least $2 more a gallon than anywhere else in the nation and rising; tuition at Cuesta today is as high as tuition at Cal Poly was in 1974. Even with the expanded G.I. Bill, which is 10 times higher than what Vietnam veterans received, it’s virtually impossible to find affordable housing on a limited income. Jobs at places like Diablo Canyon are evaporating, and workers commute ever longer distances to find work. Freedom was in the air in ’72. Today, California is mired in a regulatory morass. If I were to make a similar journey today, it would probably be to “go East young man, the California dream is fading.” Δ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

Opinion

The Shredder

Freak-out! D anger, Will Robinson! Danger! Hemp is coming! Hide the children! Grab your pitchforks! Have a conniption! Go apoplectic! Write a sternly worded letter to the SLO County Board of Supervisors! Good grief, people! Get a grip! Hemp will not be the end of life as we know it any more than cannabis has led to a complete breakdown of civilization! Of course, that hasn’t stopped our local supervisors from capitulating to a handful of hysterical NIMBY-centric constituents and voting 4 to 1 in favor of a 45-day “urgency ordinance” to curtail commercial hemp growing in unincorporated areas of the county. “I think supporters should understand that in 45 days none of the fundamental questions in play here are going to be anywhere close to being answered,” 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson commented during the board’s June 18 meeting, pointing out that all the 45-day wait will do is disrupt spring planting. Thank you, voice of reason Bruce! Where you at, 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill? “I certainly don’t oppose hemp,” Hill said during the meeting. “I certainly do appreciate everybody who sees value in CBD.” Yeah, but you still voted for the urgency ordinance! WTH? And strangest yet, even Mike Brown of the Coalition of Agriculture, Labor, and Business (COLAB) disagreed with the urgency ordinance. It’s all

so confusing, these shifting alliances! Edna Valley letter writer and grape grower Bob Schiebelhut is sure he and his family, including his aged parents, will be “subjected to unreasonable noxious odors and potential contamination of our grapes from the hemp oil and wind conditions. Hemp also serves as a host to mites.” Oh crap! Mites! Edna Valley resident George Christensen also wrote to the supes about the “overwhelming unpleasant stench attributed to the illegal cannabis growth,” which he’s worried will be worse with legal hemp growth. His children and grandchildren are at risk! Michael Lau, also of Edna, frets about the effects on his young children, the “increased neighborhood traffic, nuisance of overwhelmingly strong odors, nuisance of bright lights at night, and the involuntary exposure to the concentrated chemicals emitted by cannabis operations, which can trigger severe medical problems, especially to small children.” That’s not to mention the “criminal activity” he claims hemp cultivation will bring to the area. Holy guacamole! The sky’s really falling out there in Old Edna! Shannon and Olivia Faries of Old Edna also clearly got the form letter and wrote (copied and pasted?) about “increased traffic, nuisance of

overwhelmingly strong odors, nuisance of bright lights at night, and the involuntary exposure to the concentrated chemicals emitted by cannabis operations, which can trigger severe headaches, asthma episodes, and other respiratory problems.” Schiebelhut also worried about “migration of the hemp’s oils and skunk odors on our grapes.” Hemp sounds worse than the people-eating plant from Little Shop of Horrors! But who knows, maybe hemp will make your wine better! “It’s really wet with a deep grapy color and notes of skunk and mites. Gold medal!” Gerry Barry also wrote the supes about this “troubling matter” that may require “a personal meeting … in the future.” He finds the “glowing hot houses and odors inconsistent with my quiet enjoyment of my primarily residential property.” Hmm. Also, no one’s allowed to grow hothouse tomatoes around Gerry, got it? Too much glowing! Realtor Kristi “Random Capitalized Words” Donati, who “worked with Several home owners within the Edna Valley,” wrote, “We already have one individual who is illegally growing Hemp and Cannabis within the valley. I am told the County has no budget to inspect and regulate Hemp and Cannabis operations in the County.” Donati added, “We do not want to be like Santa Barbara County,” which apparently is a real hellhole! Who knew? This level of NIMBY hysteria is usually reserved for homeless shelters and drug rehabilitation centers. Farming in general can be a smelly business, but I don’t hear people screaming about a moratorium on broccoli, cabbage, or Brussels spouts!

And lest we forget, our Founding Fathers were super into hemp. George Washington’s beloved Mount Vernon had scads of the stuff, which was eventually removed because of Harry J. Anslinger and his war on Mexicans and black jazz musicians. In spring of 2018, Dean Norton, director of horticulture at Mount Vernon, started planting hemp again since the Virginia National Assembly legalized it. Pretty sure a lot of school kids visit Mount Vernon without suffering asthma episodes! Just sayin’! Heck, Washington encouraged citizens to sow hemp widely, and our fledgling republic allowed farmers to pay taxes with it! But, hey, Old Edna, have a freaking meltdown why doncha. Sheesh! Speaking of meltdowns, do you throw your used pizza boxes into the blue recycling bin? Well, you’re a monster, and I blame you for the upcoming 14 percent increase in SLO’s recycling rates. Now that China doesn’t want our recyclables (and attendant trash) anymore, it’s costing a lot more to sort out the actual recyclable materials from all the “wish-cycling”—stuff like waxcovered milk containers and single-use plastics and filthy SpaghettiOs cans. According to SLO City Councilmember Aaron Gomez, “We’re at over 30 percent contamination.” What are you doing, people? May I draw your attention to iwma.com/what-to-do/ curbside/? It ends with a helpful tip: “No medical waste and explosives.” Word! ∆ The Shredder smokes hemp and wonders why it’s not working. Send ideas and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

It’s the wurst! BedaFest returns with German food, beer, games, and music

B

ust out your lederhosen because next weekend, Friday, June 28, and Saturday, June 29, the third annual BedaFest returns for two days of amazing food and serious fun at Hacienda Antigua (4900 Davenport Creek Road, SLO, near SLO Airport; tickets at go.blueascension.com/bedafest). If you’re a patron of Beda’s Biergarten, you’ve probably already heard about this annual extravaganza, which is expanding to two days this year. Friday is a 21-and-older all-inclusive evening of Spanferkel roasted pig—all you can eat and drink for $95 (5:30 to 10 p.m.). Saturday is filled with family fun, games, and incredible German food like schnitzel, wurst, and Beda burgers ($35 entry and a la carte food; kids 12 and under free). You can also treat yourself to all you can eat and drink on both days for $150. The brainchild of Beda Schmidthues— PHOTO COURTESY OF JOHN HIATT

who’s as German as they come—the event is a celebration of authentic food and German beers, and it also features music by the Short Attention String Band (on both days) and Twice Cooked Jazz (on Saturday). Headed up by Chad York, the Short Attention String Band mixes lively mandolin, wooden flute, string bass, and sometimes a banjo for their mix of traditional and original tunes—bluegrass, old country, folk music, and more. Twice Cooked Jazz features Laura Foxx on clarinet, Forrestt Williams on guitar, and James Gallardo on bass. For BedaFest, they’ll add Pat Monson on guitar and vocals and Brian Lanzone on bass. Expect Gypsy jazz inspired by Django Reinhardt, plus standards and instrumentals. Delicious food, amazing beer, and good people!

‘My Old Friend’

John Hiatt is arguably the finest songwriter alive, with classics such as “My Old Friend,” “Before I Go,” “Lift Up Every Stone,” “Cry Love,” “Master of Disaster,” and many more to his credit. Hiatt plays the Fremont Theater on MASTER SONGWRITER Wednesday, June John Hiatt plays 26 (9 p.m.; $60.15 the Fremont to $71.88 at Boo Theater on June Boo Records and 26, bringing his fremontslo.com). treasure trove of “You know how original songs. writing goes for me,” John Hiatt said in press materials, offering a glimpse into his creative process. “I get a couple of lines going, and then I just tag along as the songs start to reveal themselves. You’ve just gotta jump inside and take the ride.”

What a long and amazing ride it’s been starting with Hiatt’s 1974 debut, Hangin’ Around the Observatory, right up to his 23rd studio album, 2018’s The Eclipse Sessions. Few writers are such keen observers of life, even fewer still such skilled storytellers and gifted wordsmiths. Check out the lyrics to his newest album’s opener, “Cry to Me.” “Getting dark and it feels like trouble/ Heating up just like the fallin’ evening rain/ Tongues so sharp they could burst any bubble/ Nobody wants to talk about all that pain/ They’re all having fun playing with your feelings/ You can’t control it, it just breaks your heart/ Dirty double crosses done with underhanded dealings/ When all you ever wanted was a place to start// Come on and cry to me baby/ You can even lie to me baby/ I’m probably gonna let you down but/ I swear

I don’t know about you, but I love Fred Armisen. From Portlandia, to his Barack Obama impression on Saturday Night Live, to roles in films such as Anchorman and The Dictator, he always cracks me up. He’s also a drummer who played with the early-’90s punk act Trenchmouth and more recently played drums for the Blue Man Group’s off-Broadway Chicago franchise. He combines his musicianship, acting chops, and comic genius in his show Comedy for Musicians but Everyone is Welcome, which Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents is bringing to the Alex Madonna Expo Center on Monday, June STARKEY continued page 33

hile some artists are obsessed with making two-dimensional art look three-dimensional, Paso Robles artist Nancy Vest simply prefers to make art that is actually threedimensional. “I’ve made paintings that look threedimensional, but it doesn’t do a lot for me,” Vest said. “I prefer to do sculpture and assemblage.” Vest’s artwork is currently on display at Studios on the Park as part of the Paso Robles Art Association’s Perspectives show. The exhibit shares artists’ take on the magic that is line, shade, tone, and subject matter.

BARNEY FIFES? Centerville Police Chief Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray, right) and officer Ronnie Peterson (Adam Driver) try to stave off a zombie uprising.

Zom-com W riter-director Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Only Lovers Left Alive, Paterson) helms this horror-comedy about a zombie uprising in the normally peaceful and sleepy town of Centerville. Can local police Chief Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray) and Officer Ronnie Peterson (Adam Driver) stave off the horde? Will junior policewoman Mindy Morrison (Chloë Sevigny) be of any help? How about strange new undertaker Zelda Winston (Tilda Swinton)? And what’s up with Hermit Bob (Tom Waits)? (105 min.)

Glen Over his long strange career, Jarmusch has earned the auteur title. He’s unquestionably an amazing writerdirector. And this cast? Holy hell, that’s a lot of talent on screen! And yet this film seems to squander its potential. Its pace borders on glacial. It’s so deadpan that even the non-zombies feel devoid of life. Ultimately, its message—which by the way feels tacked on at the end by Tom Waits’ voiceover narration—seems to be that humanity has been zombified by our shallow, capitalist, consumerist culture; anesthetized by our vices; and our utter annihilation is much deserved. That’s pretty heavy for a zom-com. Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland were a lot more fun than this dour affair. Of course, between the cast and witty writing, the film is still worth watching, I just wish it would have been better, and I wish Jarmusch had found a more satisfying ending than this dizzyingly contrived one. Essentially what we have here is a

zombie satire, and a very self-aware and self-reflexive one at that. When we first hear Sturgill Simpson’s theme song on the radio, Driver’s Ronnie says something like, “Oh, I love this song,” and Murray’s Cliff says, “It sounds really familiar,” to which Ronnie says, “That’s because it’s the theme song.” Huh? Later, after Cliff berates Ronnie for continuously saying, “I don’t think this is going to end well,” Cliff yells, “How do you know?” Ronnie says, “I read the whole script.” These are some strange choices. Hermit Bob seems to be the only character able to see human culture for the mess that it is; hence, he lives alone in the woods away from people. Then there’s the odd, otherworldly Scottish undertaker Zelda, which Swinton is clearly having a lot of fun playing. These bizarre characters are enough to keep the film interesting even as it drags along, one shaky, stilted zombie step at a time toward its weird conclusion. Maybe seeing 6-foot-2 Adam Driver pull up in a tiny red convertible Smart car makes it all worth it. Maybe not. Anna What the film is striving for, I’m not sure. It’s not a horror flick; it’s more of a gory comedy whose point is sort of a mystery. There is no doubt the screen is full of talent, sometimes pulling off Jarmusch’s dry comedy and sometimes

Glover’s hangdog Hank Thompson. Caleb Landry Jones stars as quirky gas station/memorabilia store owner Bobby Wiggins, who falls for “big city hipster from Cleveland” Zoe (Selena Gomez), who’s passing through town. All these various characters and cameos have their moments on screen, but the sum of the parts doesn’t really add up to much. Should you go see this? Yes, if you like Jarmusch, Murray, and zombies. Will you be blown away by how awesome it all is? Nope. No way. I’m filing this film away as a curiosity. Anna It’s a hard one to recommend flat out—as you said, it is hitting pretty low ratings across the board. It isn’t a waste of time, but the 105-minute run time stretches on. If I see Zombieland while scrolling through channels, there’s a good chance I’m going to stop in for at least a few minutes of re-watch, but with The Dead Don’t Die, I have a feeling I’ll be scrolling on past to the next channel. It feels sort of pointless, which I don’t necessarily see as a flaw but perhaps a choice—one that I don’t think pays off. Its saving grace is a truly funny cast with good rhythm and timing, an ensemble that works well together. It’s a weird night in Centerville, that’s for sure. Don’t get too attached to this or that quirky character. The zombies are relentless and take the town down one citizen at a time. It’s just kind of a weird movie, and if you like that type of thing or are a die-hard Murray fan like me, this is worth hitting a matinee. Just don’t be too disappointed if it isn’t everything you hoped and dreamed it could be; it’s just weird enough to satisfy and just funny enough to keep you engaged. Δ

trudging through it. When the local diner gets raided by coffee addicted zombies, the police are left with two torn-up bodies and a mystery on their hands. One person after the next asks, “Was it a wild animal? Or perhaps several wild animals?”—literally three or four times in the span of the scene. It’s funny, yes, but repetitive and slow. There really isn’t a whole lot going on, and while we can thank Swinton’s Zelda for some pretty awesome zombie takedowns, the film suffers from a lack of action. It doesn’t move along very well, and the weird breaks in the fourth wall are funny but also odd. Driver is good as the oddball deputy; his Smart car pull up is quite literally one of my favorite moments in film. Hermit Bob’s purpose is to give us perspective from the outside—someone in the community but apart from it, watching from the woods while the town crumbles overnight as it’s overrun with zombies. It definitely had me laughing, but it also had me confused at times and quite frankly bored at others. I’ll see anything Bill Murray puts his name on, and while there was some pretty good comedy—especially between him and Driver—it’s not making my top 10 list. It ran a little too slow to keep my attention rapt. Glen I’m pretty much the same with Bill Murray; he’s always worth watching. I see he’s playing himself again in the upcoming Zombieland sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap, which is currently in post production. Should be interesting considering he died in the first one. Of course, that’s the thing about zombies. They don’t stay dead. As Split Screen is written by Senior Staff for this film, it sure doesn’t seem like Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. it’s going to be remembered as one of Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com. Jarmusch’s better films. According to Rotten Tomatoes, critics (53 percent) are liking it slightly more than audiences (45 percent), but both seem to be rating it a bomb. Maybe I’m missing something because Jarmusch is usually a really smart director. It’s DEADLY certainly fun to see punk DISCIPLINE rocker Iggy Pop as one of Tilda Swinton stars as Zelda the coffee craving zombies, Winston, and Sturgill Simpson has Centerville’s a cameo as Guitar Zombie. eccentric Steve Buscemi as the racist undertaker and Farmer Frank Miller is swordswoman. interesting, too, as is Danny

an inspiring dream, and York promises them that when balance is restored to the land, profitability will come. The Chesters can’t seem to explain that to the flocks of birds that feast on their stone fruit trees; the gophers that eat the roots out from under the trees, killing them; and the coyotes that slaughter their chickens—initially the only profitable part of the farm—en masse. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll watch in wonder through the magic of birth, death, and everything in between. Mostly, I was reminded of how unbelievably difficult farming can be and the deep work ethic and perseverance it takes to continue in the face of adversity. For anyone with a passing interest in food or farming, this is a must-see. The story’s constant underlying theme is finding balance, and its overarching message is that we can, through hard work and ingenuity, return our entire world to harmonious balance. What the Chesters did to these 200 acres is nothing short of amazing and exactly what humanity needs to do to the entire planet, but current corporate agriculture puts profitability before sustainability. As inspiring as the film is, it’s hard to imagine manifesting this form of agriculture worldwide. We have too many mouths to feed and an economic system—capitalism—that demands constant expansion to function. Hence, our very way of life is unsustainable, and to meet demand, our Big Ag food system generates inexpensive food that sustainable farming can’t compete with. I guess what it comes down to are small choices—choices to pay more for produce from local growers, choices to source meat locally from humane farmers, and choices to reject Tyson, Foster Farms, Monsanto, and other corporate ag entities that are part of the problem. Anything’s better than nothing. Obviously, we can’t all be like the Chesters, but we can strive to be part of the solution, however small that part

might be. Billions of people making small choices can have a big impact, and watching this documentary might be just the inspiration you need to start making those small but essential choices. (91 min.) —Glen

BOOKSMART What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre In her feature-length directorial debut, actress Olivia Wilde helms this comedy about teenage besties Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein), who on the eve of their high school graduation realize they squandered their chance at fun by concentrating too much on being academic superstars. Can they cram four years of missed shenanigans into one night? Think of Booksmart as a female version of Superbad, but with even more heart. Yes, this is a dumb, low-brow comedy, but it’s also a smart coming-of-age story, an insightful examination of high school dynamics, and a heartfelt story of friendship. It’s worth a trip to the theater. Of course, you do have to witness a girl getting barfed on, so prepare yourself. (102 min.) —Glen

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Stream it Where’s it showing? Park, Stadium 10 Monarch, a cryptozoological agency, tries to deal with the emergence of monsters—Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah—who are battling for supremacy on Earth. The sequel to 2014’s Godzilla is co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus, Trick ’r Treat). If all you want out of a movie is some awesome CGI Kaiju battles, King of the Monsters might do the trick, but all the “story” surrounding the said battles is a mess. Dr. Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) is a paleobiologist working for Monarch. She and her daughter, Madison (Millie Bobby Brown), witness the birth of Mothra and are promptly kidnapped by eco-terrorists led by Col. Alan Jonah (Charles Dance). In a page torn from every wannabe blockbuster ever written, Monarch and doctors Ishirō Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins) approach Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler), Emma’s ex-husband, to track down his family. What follows is Jonah trying to release more monsters and Mark trying to stop them. There are a few switcheroos about who’s a good guy and who isn’t, but it’s mostly a semi-coherent mess and an excuse for giant monsters to wage epic battles. Secret underwater cities, mythological texts, outer space aliens, a plan to revive Godzilla by letting him feed off of radiation from a nuclear bomb—you name it, this film’s thrown it into the mix. If you like this kind of stuff, you’re in luck—the film tees up a sequel. Will Godzilla battle King Kong? Keep spending money on these films and it’s guaranteed. (131 min.) —Glen

LATE NIGHT

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Nisha Ganatra (Cake, Chutney Popcorn) has directed plenty of episodes of well-known TV series like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fresh Off the Boat, Dear White People, and The Mindy Project. She’s now calling the shots on her third directorial endeavor with Late Night and teaming up with Mindy Kaling who writes, produces, and stars in the film. While the movie is a tad predictable, the script is smart, funny, and uplifting. What makes this story refreshing is the sprinkle of realism in a fantasized world. The characters deal with the #MeToo movement, diversity (or lack thereof), ageism, and a male dominated workplace. Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a legendary host on a late-night talk show, and while she may be warm to her guests on camera, she’s pretty cold and literally couldn’t care less about anything or anyone else—she embodies the “off with your head” vibe. Except for her husband Walter Lovell (John Lithgow), who’s suffering from a debilitating disease. Newbury hasn’t switched up her program to get with the times of “on the street” segments, silly games to play with celebrities, or having unconventional guests, like YouTube stars. She’s also accused of being a woman who hates women.

TOYS TO THE RESCUE Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) and Bo Peep (voiced by Anne Potts) reunite in Toy Story 4.

RUNNING ON EMPTY New recruit Agent M (Tessa Thompson, right) and Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) join forces to find an enemy mole in their organization, in the uninspired Men in Black: International. MOVIES from page 42 The mold she’s been in for so long is threatening her stay on the show. The network is giving her the boot, but Newbury is ready to put up a fight for the late night slot she’s created. Part of that fight is hiring literally any woman, and that just so happens to be Molly Patel (Kaling), a chemical plant worker who landed the job interview on a whim. Patel is hired as the only woman in an all-male writers’ room. While she hilariously disrupts the brotherhood that’s going on in the company, Patel is also fighting her own battle of showing everyone she’s more than just a diversity hire. Patel is determined to help Newbury revive the show and her career. Of course, there’s a love dynamic going on with one of the writers and Patel, but the little to no significance it’s given in the film is perfect. There’s also an infidelity scandal between Newbury and one of her writers, which the media jumps on. There’s also Patel fighting for a place in a maledominated world as a female and a woman of color. Honestly, this story has it all and deals with it, while dramatized, as realistically as it can, with plenty of laughs along the way. It should also be noted that Kaling wrote the story specifically with Emma Thompson in mind as the lead character, who was the perfect person for the part—so maybe if you, like Kaling, put your dreams out into the universe, they will come true. Not to gloss over working your butt off as a writer on a late-night show, getting in the writers’ room of an evening time slot (The Office), and eventually creating your own TV series.

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Stream it Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job, Fate of the Furious) directs this new installment in the sci-fi comedy franchise Men in Black. This time around, new Agent M (Tessa Thompson) joins the U.K. Men in Black team, including Agent O (Emma

Thompson), High T (Liam Neeson), Agent H (Chris Hemsworth), and Agent C (Rafe Spall) to search for an enemy mole in their organization. This is a sequel in search of an original idea, and try as it might, it can’t find one. Instead, it heaps on silly coincidences and half-hearted complications, and obvious twists and unnecessary turns, as the script weaves a story about an invasion by The Hive, a super powerful secret weapon, and alien twins that manifest as pure energy. The big question is who’s the mole, and since the list of possible candidates is astonishingly small, it doesn’t take much effort to figure it out, which sort of deflates the whole film before it even gets started. You won’t need to get neuralyzed to erase your memory of this film; it’s so forgettable it will be an afterthought before the theater door closes behind you. (115 min.) —Glen

It’s an impression of Elton’s life. It’s about his struggle with homosexuality, his estrangement from his parents, his rocky relationships, his handling of fame, and his eventual realization that his lifestyle isn’t sustainable.

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Stream it Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, The Lorax, The Secret Life of Pets) and Jonathan de Val band together to co-direct the second

installment of the animated Secret Life of Pets. This time around, the New York apartment furry residents leave their owners once again on an adventure to save a new wild friend. While there are plenty of one-liners that are definitely flying over the heads of the young audience in the theater, the plot of the film is all over the place. An elementary-school-aged kid is probably not going to notice the three stories that honestly should have been separate animated shorts that somehow clumsily come together, but all you adults out there definitely will. Back in New York in the concrete jungle where dreams are made, we find Max (Patton Oswalt, who replaced Louis C.K.) and his buddy, Duke (Eric Stonestreet), living the good life with their owner. Their life turns upside down once their owner falls in love, gets married, and has a little boy named Liam. Of course Max wants to take care of Liam but realizes the city is a dangerous place for a toddler. His helicopter-parent instincts result in a nervous tick. Maybe Max just needs a little vacation, so the family leaves the city and visits an uncle in the country. It’s there that he meets Rooster (Harrison Ford), a no-nonsense kind of a dog (very Harrison Ford), who’s going to teach Max to get over his fear. Before Max goes on his trip, he leaves his favorite bee-shaped squeaky toy with Gidget (Jenny Slate) to protect. Predictably, within the first day of guardianship, she loses the toy and it bounces into the window of an apartment that’s filled with cats. Seriously, the neighbor has dozens of cats—its pretty ridiculous. But the cats are scratch-your-eyes-out catty, and Gidget needs help. She needs to learn how to be a cat in order to get the toy back. Meanwhile (I know, another damn story to follow), Snowball (Kevin Hart) is more than just a cute bunny; he’s a pajama-wearing superhero, or so he thinks. He’s hired by Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), who’s witnessed the cruelty of a tiger being held against its will by an evil circus owner. Daisy needs Snowball’s help to rescue the tiger. Somehow these three entirely different stories come together in the end with the same goal in mind: help the tiger find a

There were definitely kids laughing when Max was freaking out in the country at all the new sounds of the farmland—a cow farting, a frog chilling on a lily pad, and a freaking turkey that won’t stop following him. And the soundtrack that accompanied the film had the kids in my row dancing in their seats. Not to mention the A-list actors giving so much personality to these four-legged creatures that we wish we could talk to in real life. But the storyline just wasn’t there.

Usher), an MIT grad specializing in cyber security. When his best friend dies under mysterious circumstances, JJ turns to his estranged father, private investigator John Shaft II (Samuel L. Jackson). Together they explore the Harlem underworld in search of answers, eventually teaming with John Shaft I (Richard Roundtree). In case you’re wondering, the original 1971 Shaft is still the best, probably followed by director John Singleton’s 2000 reboot Shaft. But even the original money-

grabbing sequels—Shaft’s Big Score! (1972) and Shaft in Africa (1973)—are better than this unnecessary, regressive nod to the blaxploitation classic. Heavily armed misogynists and homophobes tramping around Harlem kicking ass may have seemed like “taking it to the man” in the 1970s, but today the Shafts feel like dinosaurs. Instead of creating an evolved character, we get a missed opportunity to make Shaft cool again. (105 min.) —Glen

It’s just a device to generate laughs, which is not a bad thing if the jokes land, and most of the time they do. However, an improved second season didn’t translate to higher ratings, so NBC canceled the show.

s operating manager Trung Tran puts it: Americans have their hamburgers, and the Vietnamese have their pho’. Pho’—pronounced fuh—the worldfamous, flavorful signature dish of Vietnam, is what the late chef and sassy New Yorker Anthony Bourdain called his irresistible siren song, the dish he craved above all others. Rice noodles. Beef broth. Meat and herbs. A humble, traditional soup that’s been satiating citizens for centuries. Bourdain did several episodes of No Reservations on Vietnam. “It’s one of my favorite places on Earth,” he said, talking about its food and its people. I’m a big fan of those No Reservations episodes on the Travel Channel simply because of the contrast between the places portrayed and where we live here in California. From my Atascadero sofa, I’ve watched Bourdain as he took us to rice farms where women work ankles deep in the wet rows, and as he whisked us to busy Hanoi—white-knuckling it though lanes whizzing with motorbikes in search of the best pho’. Here at the Central Coast’s own Pho’ 4 U, which has been open just nine months, the walls are decorated with photographs of Vietnam. My favorite is a photograph of a Vietnamese bicycle rider in an Asian rice hat, keeping her own pace through the crazy modernized streets of the capital. The local restaurant is small, clean, and refreshing to walk in to, with

For a mere $4.25, you can order the organic tiger pearl milk tea. This Taiwanese bubble tea drink is a rich, creamy caramel jasmine tea made with sweet, soft, and chewy passion fruit tapioca pearls. They also make an organic matcha strawberry frappe, organic jasmine milk tea, classic Thai iced tea, and Vietnamese iced coffee. Yes, you can order a boring soft drink, but why? I once looked into making boba pearl drinks, and let me tell you, it’s too hard. I don’t even know where to start. So, unless you’re an accomplished chef, I say just head to Pho’ 4 U. ∆

D INE ’N’ DISH Cilantro pesto

When summer arrives each year and the cilantro is growing fast, I like to make a version of pesto that I adapted from an Afghan farmers market stand in Marin County. Cilantro, apple cider vinegar, and garlic have more health benefits than I can count (including detox), and I love the combination of flavors. I use a dollop of cilantro pesto every morning on my omelet or breakfast burrito, or I mix it into mayo to upgrade my sandwiches. I also love it Spanish-style on tortilla chips topped with fresh heirloom tomatoes. It’s super-easy to make in a food processor. Here is what you need: • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro (washed and de-stemmed) • 2 cloves garlic • 1 tablespoon olive oil • 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar • 1/2 lemon or lime, juiced • 1 teaspoon chili flakes • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric • salt and pepper Blend all the ingredients in a food processor and store in a glass jar for one to two weeks for ultimate freshness. ∆ Flavor writer Beth Giuffre is all about ultimate freshness. Send Mason jars and comments through the editor at clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: It’s my birthday. If you feel moved, send me love and blessings! Info about how to do that at freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Orfield Laboratories is an architectural company that designs rooms for ultimate comfort. They sculpt the acoustic environment so that sounds are soft, clear, and pleasant to the human ear. They ensure that the temperature is just right and the air quality is always fresh. At night the artificial light is gentle on the eyes, and by day the sunlight is rejuvenating. In the coming weeks, I’d love for you to be in places like this on a regular basis. According to my analysis of the astrological rhythms, it’s recharging time for you. You need and deserve an abundance of cozy relaxation.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In 1903, the Wright Brothers put wings on a heavy machine and got the contraption to fly up off the ground for 59 seconds. No one had ever done such a thing. Sixty-six years later, American astronauts succeeded at an equally momentous feat. They piloted a craft that departed from the Earth and landed on the surface of the moon. The first motorcycle was another quantum leap in humans’ ability to travel. Two German inventors created the first one in 1885. But it took 120 years before any person did a back-flip while riding a motorcycle. If I had to compare your next potential breakthrough to one or the other marvelous invention, I’d say it’ll be more metaphorically similar to a motorcycle flip than the moonlanding. It may not be crucial to the evolution of the human race, but it’ll be impressive—and a testament to your hard work.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I hope that during the next four weeks, you will make plans to expedite and deepen your education. You’ll be able to make dramatic progress in figuring out what will be most important for you to learn in the next three years. We all have pockets of ignorance about how we understand reality, and now is an excellent time for you to identify what your pockets are and to begin illuminating them. Every one of us lacks some key training or knowledge that could help us fulfill our noblest dreams, and now is a favorable time for you to address that issue.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the next four weeks, you’re not likely to win the biggest prize or tame the fiercest monster or wield the greatest power. However, you could very well earn a second- or third-best honor. I won’t be surprised if you claim a decent prize or outsmart a somewhat menacing dragon or gain an interesting new kind of clout. Oddly enough, this less-than-supreme accomplishment may be exactly right for you. The lower levels of pressure and responsibility will keep you sane and healthy. The stress of your moderate success will be very manageable. So give thanks for this just-right blessing!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Some traditional astrologers believe solar eclipses are sour omens. They theorize that when the moon perfectly covers the sun, as it will on July 2, a metaphorical shadow will pass across some part of our lives, perhaps triggering crises. I don’t agree with that gloomy assessment. I consider a solar eclipse to be a harbinger of grace and slack and freedom. In my view, the time before and after this cosmic event might resemble what the workplace is like when the boss is out of town. Or it may be a sign that your inner critic is going to shut up and leave you alone for a while. Or you could suddenly find that you can access the willpower and ingenuity you need so as to change something about your life that you’ve been wanting to change. So I advise you to start planning now to take advantage of the upcoming blessings of the eclipse.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What are you doing with the fertility and creativity that have been sweeping through your life during the first six months of 2019? Are you witheringly idealistic, caught up in perfectionistic detail as you cautiously follow outmoded rules about how to make best use of that fertility and creativity? Or are you being expansively pragmatic, wielding your lively imagination to harness that fertility and creativity to generate transformations that will improve your life forever?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mythologist Joseph Campbell said that heroes are those who give their lives to something bigger than themselves. That’s never an easy assignment for anyone, but right now it’s less difficult for you than ever before. As you prepare for the joyous ordeal, I urge you to shed the expectation that it will require you to make a burdensome sacrifice. Instead, picture the process as involving the loss of a small pleasure that paves the way for a greater pleasure. Imagine you will finally be able to give a giant gift you’ve been bursting to express.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the year 37 AD, Saul of Tarsus was traveling by foot from Jerusalem to Damascus, Syria. He was on a mission to find and arrest devotees of Jesus, then bring them back to Jerusalem to be punished. Saul’s plans got waylaid, however—or so the story goes. A “light from heaven” knocked him down, turned him blind, and spoke to him in the voice of Jesus. Three days later, Saul’s blindness was healed and he pledged himself to forevermore be one of those devotees of Jesus he had previously persecuted. I don’t expect a transformation quite so spectacular for you in the coming weeks, Scorpio. But I do suspect you will change your mind about an important issue, and consider making a fundamental edit of your belief system.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You could be a disorienting or even disruptive influence to some people. You may also have healing and inspirational effects. And yes, both of those statements are true. You should probably warn your allies that you might be almost unbearably interesting. Let them know you could change their minds and disprove their theories. But also tell them that if they remain open to your rowdy grace and boisterous poise, you might provide them with curative stimulation they didn’t even know they needed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Some children are repelled by the taste of broccoli. Food researchers at the McDonald’s restaurant chain decided to address the problem. In an effort to render this ultra-healthy vegetable more palatable, they concocted a version that tasted like bubble gum. Kids didn’t like it, though. It confused them. But you have to give credit to the food researchers for thinking inventively. I encourage you to get equally creative, even a bit wacky or odd, in your efforts to solve a knotty dilemma. Allow your brainstorms to be playful and experimental.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spank yourself for me, please. Ten sound swats ought to do it. According to my astrological assessments, that will be sufficient to rein yourself in from the possibility of committing excesses and extravagance. By enacting this humorous yet serious ritual, you will set in motion corrective forces that tweak your unconscious mind in just the right way so as to prevent you from getting too much of a good thing; you will avoid asking for too much or venturing too far. Instead, you will be content with and grateful for the exact bounty you have gathered in recent weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your inspiration for the coming weeks is a poem by Piscean poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It begins like this: “The holiest of all holidays are those / Kept by ourselves in silence and apart; / The secret anniversaries of the heart, / When the full river of feeling overflows.” In accordance with astrological omens, Pisces, I invite you to create your own secret holiday of the heart, which you will celebrate at this time of year for the rest of your long life. Be imaginative and full of deep feelings as you dream up the marvelous reasons why you will observe this sacred anniversary. Design special rituals you will perform to rouse your gratitude for the miracle of your destiny. ∆
