SLO County to pay settlement in complaint against late Supervisor Adam Hill

S

FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

an Luis Obispo County and a former legislative aide to late 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill have settled a recent workplace complaint that accused Hill of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment. A heavily redacted copy of the former aide’s complaint states that Hill made unwanted sexual advances and behaved inappropriately toward her after she had ended a consensual but clandestine relationship with the supervisor. The complaint describes her suffering from “PSTD” over “gross things that happened,” citing instances of groping and other unwelcomed touching and comments. “[Redacted] would tell Hill that [redacted] felt uncomfortable … and he would reply that he couldn’t help himself because [redacted] was so sexy. He told [redacted] would need to quit being so sexy,” the complaint reads. SLO County’s Nov. 13 settlement pays the aide—whose name New Times is withholding because she’s an alleged victim—six months of salary and benefits exceeding $40,000, and relieves SLO County of liability. Her last day as a county employee was Nov. 13. “The county treats allegations of workplace misconduct very seriously,” county administrators said in a statement on Aug. 13 acknowledging the complaint and an investigation into the allegations. SLO County has since completed that investigation but denied New Times’ request for a copy. The redacted complaint—which was lodged a few weeks before Hill committed suicide on Aug. 6—appears to describe a long and complex relationship that began in late 2017 as a “casual sexual relationship” and started before her

employment at the county. Through 2018 and most of 2019, the two maintained a relationship, but, according to the complaint, she “finally broke it off … when Hill became upset and ‘freaked out’ and worried their relationship would become public as a result of the Katie Hill scandal.” Former U.S. Rep. Katie Hill resigned from Congress in October 2019 after she admitted to a relationship with a campaign staff member. “[Redacted] was upset since they had been in a sexual relationship for a few years and he had previously told [redacted] he would make it SETTLED San Luis Obispo County will pay a settlement to a former public,” the complaint states. county employee who alleged that late 3rd District Supervisor Adam Following their breakup, Hill sexually harassed her and created a hostile work environment the complaint states that before his August passing. she feared retaliation.

Grand jury report details failures that led to Paso Unified’s financial crisis

Paso Unified had managed to put about $3.9 million into its rainy day fund, equating to about 7 percent of its overall budget and sitting well above the minimum 3 percent reserve required by the California Department of Education. By the end of Williams’ first term in 2015, the district’s reserve was equal to about 10 percent of its overall budget. But at the end of the following year, that had dropped back down to about 8 percent, and by the end of the 201617 year, the reserve had declined to 4 percent. When the 2017-18 fiscal year was all said and done, Paso Unified had just $306,172 left in its reserve, equating to less than a percent of its budget. “Between 2015 and 2019, nearly $6 million in reserve funds were depleted,” the report reads. “This was primarily due to administrative and accounting errors, poor fiscal planning, and improper management guidance.” Overestimated average daily attendance— which the state uses to determine how much funding will go to a school district—from 2016 to 2018 led to an unexpected loss of more than $1 million, according to the grand jury report. The district also improperly calculated its transportation costs—leading to another surprise seven-figure expense—and made mistakes in calculating accounts payable. It miscalculated the number of students in need

It took a number of serious miscalculations and failures in leadership to get the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District into the unfortunate financial situation it’s in today. That’s according to a recently released SLO County grand jury report that details what led to the district’s second financial crisis since 2012, which the report says serves as a “a cautionary tale” for other school districts in the region. In the 28-page report released on Nov. 17, the jury blames several accounting errors, a lack of oversight, and shortcomings on the part of the Paso Unified’s former superintendent, the former board of trustees, and the SLO County Office of Education for draining the district’s reserve funds between 2015 and 2018. “The financial problems that developed at the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District were a result of the actions of three groups charged with school system oversight,” the report reads. “Their collective failures to control or report on excessive expenditures created a fiscal crisis that will take time and hard work to resolve.” Former Superintendent Chris Williams was hired in August 2014, according to the report, shortly after the district had pulled itself out of another financial crisis in 2012. At the time,

of free or reduced meals and submitted food service expenses that were ultimately rejected by the state; insufficiently planned for pension and salary increases; and underestimated the true costs of new hires, facilities, and programs that Williams launched in hopes of attracting new students and ultimately boosting the district’s revenue. The grand jury blamed these mistakes largely on mismanagement and inexperience caused by high turnover rates among financial administrators. In the four years that Williams served as Paso’s superintendent, there were four different chief business officers and four financial managers, and Williams twice served as the district’s interim chief business officer for six months total. “Beyond lacking the experience for this role,” the report reads, “it left a serious gap in accountability with no systems for checks and balances.” Paso’s current superintendent, Curt Dubost, said that while previous audits and internal investigations had already revealed much of what was included in the recent grand jury report, he found it to be a fair account of what happened. “Unfortunately the enrollment projections were too rosy,” Dubost told New Times, adding that those errors led to huge job and program NEWS continued page 6

cuts carried out as recently as March of this year. “That’s the main message here: You can’t count on rosy projections to balance your budget.” The district, he said, fully intends to consider the 16 recommendations laid out in the report, and many have already been implemented. While the district’s reserve is currently back up to about 10 percent of its overall budget, Dubost said much of that is one-time CARES Act funding that has to be used by the end of the year, and projections show that Paso’s enrollment will likely decline in coming years, leading to more declines in revenue. There’s a lot of rebuilding to do in the district, and Dubost said that while he understands the community’s mistrust, he hopes everyone can come together to help address the serious issues that lie ahead—including getting kids back to school safely—rather than those of the past. “At some point we have to move forward,” Dubost said. That’s what James Lynett hopes to see too. Lynett is the executive director of the Paso Robles Public Educators union, and he said that a number of community members and newly elected trustees have expressed interest in further investigating Paso’s most recent financial crisis and rumors surrounding former Superintendent Williams. While Lynett said he too wants to see justice served, he said there have been plenty of investigations and audits of the situation. He doesn’t believe there’s any big conspiracy behind the reserve losses, just incompetence. “I feel like really it’s time to move on and learn the lesson from this,” he told New Times. —Kasey Bubnash

Paso continues to have the highest COVID-19 cases

On Nov. 16, San Luis Obispo County reverted back to the state’s purple tier in California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a response to a rapid surge in positive COVID-19 cases. The county has had more than 5,400 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. As of Nov. 18, 757 of those are active COVID-19 cases. Paso Robles has been leading the pack of SLO County cities with the most positive cases since March, with 1,308. On two separate occasions in August, the city called on area residents to follow the safety guidelines. However, some City Council members said they don’t believe the virus is cause for alarm and every council member supports the city’s current COVID-19 response, which is through education. At the Nov. 17 City Council meeting, council members considered options for increasing outreach, education, assistance, and enforcement efforts in response to the virus. Councilmember Fred Strong said he believed the businesses in the community are following safety guidelines and aren’t putting the community at risk. “It’s the people and their actions that could put themselves at risk if they don’t use common sense and good judgement,” Strong said. He started off his comments by saying there is a strong feeling that the virus

and responding to it has become a politicized battle rather than an objective battle. “We are supposed to be a nonpartisan organization and our positions are nonpartisan,” Strong said. “I would like to point out that the governor’s guidelines are not mandates. There is no legislative action in this regard.” Councilmember John Hamon said he personally believes “COVID-19 is not a major threat.” “It’s not as bad as people are trying to portray this as a death sentence,” he said. “In my opinion we’re seeing that 99 percent of the general population does not have substantial issues with it after they’ve had it, and I’ve had a lot of people who have had it talk to me about this.” A majority of the council agreed that the city is doing enough to ensure the community is doing what it can to follow the safety guidelines, it doesn’t want to spend more money on resources, and it doesn’t want the police department to respond to calls regarding enforcement because the department is already stretched thin. Instead, the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce will be taking complaints from the community about possible safety guideline violations. The chamber will reach out to the person or business in question to educate them on safety practices. If the chamber believes that there is an egregious violation occurring, it will forward that information to the police department, which will decide whether to send law enforcement personnel and or reach out to code enforcement, which would then issue a citation. The council directed staff to proceed with the city’s current COVID-19 response of education and enforcement— administrative citations for egregious violators—and return to council with additional microgrants for local businesses if funding is available. —Karen Garcia

SLO extends city night hiking program for a year

Outdoor enthusiasts may continue to use San Luis Obispo city open space after dark this winter. On Nov. 17, the SLO City Council unanimously voted to extend a two-yearold pilot program that keeps Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve open until 8:30 p.m. from November to March. The program first passed in 2018 as a way to provide working residents more opportunities to use city open space in the shorter winter days. SLO’s open spaces typically close an hour after sunset. Mayor Heidi Harmon said on Nov. 17 that outdoor access is as important as ever given the COVID-19 crisis. “Now more than ever with COVID bearing down upon us, with restrictions also bearing down on us … folks need the opportunity to get outdoors, to find safe ways to keep their wellness going and potentially to be with each other at a safe distance,” Harmon said. The city did not make any changes to the mechanics of the program, which offers 65 hiking permits per night, handed out on a first come, first serve basis. The permits are available online. Although night hiking is popular with many recreationists, some locals oppose it for environmental reasons. City officials

6 • New Times • November 19 - Novmber 26, 2020 • www.newtimesslo.com

pledged in 2018 to produce a report at the conclusion of the pilot program that documented any impacts on wildlife. The city has yet to produce that report thanks to COVID-19. City Councilmember-elect Jan Marx wrote in a letter to the council that any decision to extend the program should wait until an environmental impact report is available. “Council and the public were promised an objective, factual evaluation of the impact on wildlife before considering extending the program further,” Marx’s letter read. “I urge you to do the right thing.” But by extending it just one season, Councilmember Andy Pease argued it will give the community a chance to discuss the program down the road when more information is available. “It’s just a few months,” Pease said. “That will align with us being able to have that bigger conversation and get everybody back to the table.” —Peter Johnson

Pismo Beach bars contractor from work after allegedly botched project

In a move that was described by all parties as “very rare” and “extraordinary,” Pismo Beach City Council banned a Santa Maria-based engineering contracting company from working on city projects for the next five years, the result of a recent project that city staff say was repeatedly delayed due to the company’s shortcomings. At a meeting on Nov. 17, Pismo Beach City Council voted unanimously to declare V. Lopez Jr. & Sons Inc. a nonresponsible bidder, which disqualifies the contractor from working on Pismo Beach projects for the next five years. At the meeting, city staff said V. Lopez was tasked with replacing the Five Cities Lift Station, a project that started in 2018 and included performing maintenance on six lift stations and repairing a wastewater collections system. But according to the city staff report, various glaring mistakes and a lack of preparation on the part of V. Lopez led to a 69-day delay in the completion of the project and roughly $323,000 in losses to the city. “This is actually a very rare thing for a City Council to do and a very rare item,” City Manager Jim Lewis said at the Nov. 17 meeting. “And it was certainly with a heavy heart and a heavy frame of mind that I added this to your agenda. But it really has to do with public safety and the integrity of our projects.” In its staff report, the city claims that throughout the construction process, V. Lopez consistently initiated work without the necessary materials and equipment and demonstrated a lack of understanding of public works processes and requirements, which often led to the use of city staff and materials to help complete projects. But Vince Lopez III, president of V. Lopez Jr. & Sons, said the project delays stemmed from the city’s inadequate design plan and inaccurate specs. V. Lopez has been in businesses for more than 40 years, he said, and his workers fully understand what it takes to get a public works project done. “We’ve never seen anything like this,

and it’s just my opinion that we’re getting ramrodded by the city,” Lopez told New Times. Lopez said he plans to fight Pismo’s declaration and ban on his company in court. “The main thing is our name,” he said. “Our reputation. In 41 years we’ve never been banned from any city, county, any customer that we’ve had. When somebody sees that, they’re not going to see my point of view.” —Kasey Bubnash

Tianna Arata’s attorneys say DA’s office should be disqualified from case

Attorneys for local activist and protest leader Tianna Arata filed a motion to disqualify the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office from prosecuting the case against Arata, citing District Attorney Dan Dow’s personal and political bias. The motion filed on Nov. 17 alleges Dow is publicly aligned with right-wing conservative political organizations and fundamental religious groups that seek to vilify the Black Lives Matter movement. His personal bias and political motivations, the document claims, have usurped his ability to exercise his prosecutorial discretion fairly, and this has pervaded his entire office. From the onset, the document alleges, the motives behind the charging decisions raised serious concerns given a 20-yearold Black female was singled out for prosecution in a crowd of primarily white protesters under a theory that she was responsible for the actions of the entire group. The attorneys compiled a series of events in which they believe Dow’s actions were contrary to prosecuting Arata fairly and free from bias of his personal beliefs. According to the document, on July 4, Dow spoke at a Sculpterra Winery event in Paso Robles where he announced that as the county’s chief prosecutor, he would not enforce state mandates restricting large indoor faith-based gatherings amid resurging cases of COVID-19 across the state, the document claims. Arata’s attorneys argue that Dow made it clear he will not exercise his prosecutorial discretion in accordance with the law if it does not align with his personal views or those of his religious conservative voter base. However when it comes to the Black Lives Matters movement, the defense argues that Dow allegedly turns a blind eye to the First Amendment and is charging Arata with 13 misdemeanors for her participation in a march that attracted a large number of supporters, impeded the flow of traffic, and created loud noise. According to the document, the District Attorney’s Office then began its efforts to justify the arrest and build a case against Arata fueled by Dow’s political agenda. The filing alleges that Dow is prosecuting Arata to gain national attention and endear himself to right-wing political leaders so that he can advance his political career beyond SLO. The defense requests that the case be referred to the Attorney General’s Office to determine whether the prosecution can rightfully proceed. ∆ —Karen Garcia

New local housing program provides affordable living options through reduced rent in exchange for help around the house

W

hen Smart Housing Solutions began its HomeShare SLO program in 2017, the goal was to provide San Luis Obispo County with an alternative affordable housing option. Through the program, homeowners with an extra bedroom are matched with a qualified tenant—shared housing seekers are required to undergo a background check, provide proof of income, and have three references—for a low rental cost. The solution is two-fold, isolated residents who are in need of extra income or companionship are matched with an individual looking for housing at a cost that’s below market rate. At the time, a rental agreement could be anywhere between $570 to $800. The nonprofit is now establishing another alternative program to aid individuals whose income has been affected by COVID-19 via an exchange— helping around the house to reduce the tenat’s rent. Smart Housing Solutions Executive Director Celeste Goyer said the Reduced Rent Task Exchange Homeshare has been in the works for a long time. “This is a program that people have been asking about, but now was the right time to fine tune it and offer it to the greater community,” Goyer said. The task exchange model is available for existing and new housing seekers with a limited budget. They can reduce their rent by providing five to 15 hours of help to the homeowner each week with tasks such as light housekeeping, pet care, rides to appointments, yard work, meal preparation, computer help, or companionship. If the tenant completes approximately 15 hours of assistance to the homeowner per week, he or she will only pay roughly $150 of monthly utility share. Partial task exchanges are also an option where the tenant provides either five to eight hours of assistance and pays anywhere between $300 to $500 in monthly rent.

The Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo (HASLO) stated that the economic effects of COVID-19 have significantly impacted its voucher program. Many of its clients have experienced a reduction in income due to the pandemic, so HASLO’s cost per voucher has increased, which could potentially impact the organization’s annual budget by $1 million. As a result, HASLO isn’t issuing any new vouchers, which typically get individuals off the street and into housing. According to the Pew Research Center, approximately 22 percent of U.S. adults have changed their residence due to the pandemic or have said they know someone who has. The survey conducted in early June found that 3 percent of adults have moved permanently or temporarily due to COVID-19, and 6 percent of those interviewed said they had someone move into their household because of it. An additional 14 percent of adults surveyed said they didn’t personally experience relocation but know someone who did. The National Low Income Housing Coalition, along with eight other organizations and academic institutions, released a report that concluded 30 million to 40 million people in the U.S. are at risk of losing their homes in the next several months without the intervention of federal assistance. The organizations compiled information from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey, projected eviction filings, unemployment data, and housing insecurity statistics. Their findings state that without at least $100 billion in emergency rental assistance and a nationwide moratorium on evictions, millions of renters who are currently experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus will face displacement and homelessness on a historic scale. Laurel Weir, the homeless services coordinator for the SLO County Department of Social Services said that the eviction moratorium helped stem the tide of evictions locally. Households that otherwise would have become homeless due to a loss of income were able to stay in their homes, although she said loss of housing is still happening on a lesser level. ∆

Abuse and power Woman’s federal lawsuit details alleged rape and stalking by a former Paso Robles police officer Editor’s note: New Times chose not to use the alleged victim’s full name to protect her privacy.

O

n a day in late December 2017, then Paso Robles Police Sgt. Christopher McGuire ushered city resident J.G. from her home to her detached garage, and allegedly asked her to lock the door behind her. Afraid, J.G. obeyed and reportedly asked him what they were there to talk about. J.G. knew McGuire from a few nights before. On Dec. 19, 2017, he was one of several officers who’d responded to her home in a 911 domestic violence call that resulted in her boyfriend’s arrest. That night, after the other officers had left, a uniformed and armed McGuire lingered for hours, according to allegations in a federal lawsuit. At one point, McGuire allegedly ordered J.G. to hug him and then forced her hand onto his penis. “McGuire then asked which gun she preferred,” the lawsuit alleges. “McGuire directed [her] to tell him what she would do with his ‘big cock.’” McGuire left her house late that night, but he returned a few days later to conduct an unexpected “welfare check” on his way to work. Inside her locked garage, McGuire allegedly “pulled down his shorts and attempted to physically force [J.G.] onto her knees to perform oral sex.” J.G. tried to resist, the suit claims, and then the sergeant raped her. Investigators would later match the semen left on her garage floor with McGuire’s DNA. These alleged events are just the start of a months-long story of abuse detailed in the May 27 lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. J.G.’s complaint seeks civil damages from McGuire and the city of Paso Robles for sexual battery and harassment, stalking, civil rights violations, and negligence. J.G. and her attorneys filed the lawsuit

after the SLO County District Attorney’s Office declined to file criminal charges against McGuire following a 2018 investigation, during which McGuire resigned from the department. In 2019, the city of Paso Robles dismissed J.G.’s administrative claim for damages, arguing it was filed after a mandatory six-month window. But J.G.’s attorneys are arguing in federal court that her claim is still valid— that the trauma inflicted against her by local law enforcement and the justice system were what caused her delay. “It is entirely reasonable for a victim of sexual assault, especially a victim of sexual abuse by a police officer, to need a few months to process everything before filing a civil claim against the officer,” her lawsuit reads. A federal judge agreed that J.G. deserved a trial and denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss the case for lack of timeliness. It will go in front of a jury next summer. The allegations against McGuire and the Paso Robles Police Department span nearly a year. In court filings, McGuire denied all guilt, stating he’s never sexually assaulted or harassed “any woman at any time.” The SLO County Sheriff’s Office, which conducted the 2018 criminal investigation, denied New Times’ requests for documents related to the case. Attorneys for all parties involved in the lawsuit didn’t return New Times’ requests for comment before press time.

Stalking, assault, threats After the alleged rape in J.G.’s garage in December 2017, McGuire reportedly stalked and harassed her for months while on duty. According to the lawsuit, McGuire repeatedly threatened to harm her and take her children away if she told anyone about the incident, harassing her in public places and routinely driving by her house in his patrol vehicle.

“He would frequently park his official police vehicle in front of [her] residence for several minutes at a time,” the lawsuit reads. “The GPS on McGuire’s official law enforcement vehicle establish that McGuire’s police vehicle drove past [her] residence during the late night/early morning hours, without any legitimate reason for doing so, dozens of times.” The harassment eventually caused J.G. to change residences, the lawsuit says. Afterward, in April 2018, an on-duty McGuire pulled J.G. over while she was in her car with her daughter and allegedly demanded she give him her new address. “McGuire said he was angry because he had heard that [J.G.] told someone about his assaults and harassment,” the lawsuit states. “McGuire then threatened to call Child Protective Services and report [her] and have her kids taken away from her if she did not keep her mouth shut.” According to the allegations, McGuire then followed J.G. in his police car to her new home and ordered her to the bedroom. After he allegedly attempted to force oral sex and rape her, the lawsuit states that she “fought back and began screaming.” Upon leaving, the lawsuit says McGuire told her to “call the police department every Wednesday and leave a message for him.” “This was done for the purpose of intimidating her into not reporting his sexual assaults and sexual harassment of her,” the lawsuit alleges. “[J.G.] was terrified of McGuire and what he could do to her with his authority as an officer of the law.” In May 2018, J.G. reported McGuire’s conduct to the Santa Cruz Police Department, which kicked off an internal investigation at the Paso Robles Police Department, according to the lawsuit. McGuire went on paid administrative leave that month. The SLO County Sheriff’s Office took over that investigation. J.G. participated anonymously through a Marsy’s Law attorney. According to the lawsuit, the sheriff’s final investigation found that McGuire had sexually harassed or assaulted multiple women in Paso Robles. In one alleged incident in 2015, “McGuire directed a female civilian to ‘flash’ her breasts” to make an arrest “go away.” The investigation also allegedly found that “McGuire routinely engaged in sexual

intercourse and oral sex with other women while he worked his regular patrol shift.” Despite the Sheriff’s Office recommending felony charges for forcible sex acts, SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow announced on Nov. 1, 2018, that his office would not pursue the case against McGuire. Citing a lack of evidence of nonconsensual sexual contact, Dow said “no reasonable and objective jury could find Mr. McGuire guilty of the alleged crimes.” According to her lawsuit, DA Dow’s decision delivered J.G. a “devastating blow” and further challenged her ability to file a timely claim for damages. “Processing the fact that McGuire had gotten away with raping her, it is reasonable that [J.G.] … would need some time before initiating a civil claim against McGuire,” the lawsuit states. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

A HELPING HAND RN Kelly Maguire graduated from Cuesta College’s nursing program in May and was almost immediately hired at French Hospital Medical Center, where she provides support essential to beating COVID-19.

BY KASEY BUBNASH

Essential care K elly Maguire was just a few months away from completing Cuesta College’s registered nursing (RN) program when COVID-19 first started making its way around the Central Coast. As cases trickled into San Luis Obispo County in March, Cuesta closed its campus and canceled in-person classes. In an effort to limit person-to-person contact and reserve personal protective equipment, local hospitals also stopped allowing students into their facilities for the clinical rotations that are required for graduation. But unlike nursing programs across the nation that were derailed by the pandemic, Cuesta found a way to continue classes through online instruction and clinical simulations, and by May, Maguire was able to graduate. That, she said, could only be described as a bittersweet moment. “No one expects to graduate nursing school in the middle of a pandemic,” Maguire said. Maguire is one of about 20 recent Cuesta College nursing grads hired at Dignity Health hospitals in SLO and Santa Barbara counties amid the COVID-19 pandemic, an experience that Maguire said has been at once completely overwhelming and incredibly rewarding. Dignity Health has a long-standing partnership with nursing programs on the Central Coast and hires recent grads annually, but this year’s group faced unparalleled and unexpected obstacles, both in actually graduating and upon entering the workforce. When schools closed across the Central Coast in the spring, Cuesta transitioned to online instruction. So Maguire and her classmates worked through various scenarios and case studies over Zoom, discussing what kind of treatment they’d offer to patients with theoretical symptoms or diagnoses. By early April, Cuesta’s nursing students were able to return to local hospitals for the hands-on clinical experience that Maguire said is vital to truly learning what it takes to be a nurse. Shortly after her graduation in May, Maguire was hired as an RN at French Hospital Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, where she’s worked with a few COVID-19 patients. She felt nervous about it at first, but then she thought back to all

her training—the hours spent studying, the days working side by side with other healthcare workers during clinical rotations—and she felt lucky to be able to offer some kind of assistance at a time when so many feel like there’s no hope. “During the pandemic sometimes a lot of people feel helpless,” Maguire said. “But we had just learned everything and gotten all of this training, and we were able to apply it.” Sara San Juan, a spokesperson for Dignity Health Central Coast, said Maguire was one of six recent Cuesta grads hired at French Hospital. Arroyo Grande Community Hospital also hired six grads, and Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria hired eight. This year’s nursing grads, San Juan said, have been important in the fight against COVID-19. Their help is even more important now that cases of COVID-19 are surging on the Central Coast and throughout the nation. “While some of them do not work directly with COVID-19 patients, they are vital in supporting health care in our communities during the pandemic,” San Juan wrote via email. “Their presence allows us to manage staffing levels in each department to best care for our patients.”

Better without Airbnb Morro Bay’s housing market is adversely affected by short-term rentals

M

y wife and I have used Airbnb quite a bit over the years, both as hosts and as travelers. We know the benefits of the original idea: 1. Hosts can make some extra money by renting out part of their property, like a bedroom or mother-in-law’s quarters, etc. 2. Travelers can stay in real neighborhoods, meet locals, and generally experience an improved travel experience versus the average motel/hotel. But, over the years, Airbnb and other short-term rental platforms have become monsters. Airbnb was never meant to be what it has become, which is a system used to a large extent by absentee owners who perhaps own several (or dozens) of properties, turn entire neighborhoods and tourist towns into vast pseudo hotels, and ruin their character and affordability. Mr. Juren (“Share Morro Bay,” Nov. 12), whose company profits from absentee Airbnb properties, makes it sound like travelers would lack access to California’s coast if it weren’t for Airbnb, and that somehow Airbnb serves the public good— which is so misguided it’s nauseating. There is a lack of coastal access? Morro Bay is full of motels/hotels. While having untold dozens and hundreds of short-term visitors to a given neighborhood every year can have numerous negative affects, to me perhaps the worst effect Airbnb has on communities is the strong upward price pressures put on rents and sales prices. As far as rents go, rents skyrocket as a typical property owner can see large

HODIN

increases in income by converting their long-term rental to short-term rentals. Did anyone else notice in March/April of 2020 at the start of COVID-19, that suddenly many relatively affordable rental properties popped up on Craigslist? That was a glimpse of the real Morro Bay. It happened because Airbnb hosts switched to long-term renting as tourism dropped. As far as sales go, when properties are placed on the market, buyers can afford to pay much higher prices as the potential short-term rental income typically pays the entire mortgage and more. And when it’s time to sell, buyers can then also ask much higher prices. Many prospective Morro Bay residents, folks whose work is essential to our community, either can’t afford to buy or rent here, or if they can, they need to work two to three jobs to make it happen. And even then, it’s for a residence the size of a closet. Short-term-rental advocates who deny these community affordability issues are simply putting their heads in the sand. These are quite basic market forces at play, seen worldwide and repeatedly throughout the short-term rental system, and are undeniable. Nothing I’m saying here is new, but it really irks me that the commercial property interests (the absentee property owners who own several properties as well as their management companies), who profit from the destruction of our communities, have the nerve to make it sound like Airbnb is a benefit to the community. That’s like saying a certain amount of property fires should be

encouraged because the extra fires would provide jobs for fireman and homebuilders. And property rights? Neighborhoods are zoned residential. If a person wants to exercise their so-called “property right” of short-term absentee-renting, they need to buy a property in a part of town zoned accordingly. “Hosted” short-term rentals, and/ or greatly restricted rentals (like one or two per month) would solve almost all the problems with short-term rentals all at once and immediately, but, with encouragement from the understandably(?) biased commercial Airbnb interests, the city decided that hosted rentals are not needed. How utterly sad. Look, this is a very tough situation and without easy answers. I applaud all those who work so hard on solving this issue, but I believe we would all, generally speaking, be better off without any shortterm, absentee, residential rentals. Δ Bill Salopek writes from Morro Bay. Share your thoughts in a letter to the editor emailed to letters@newtimesslo.com.

Letters Thanks, Jeff Heller

Instead of criticizing City Councilmember Jeff Heller’s solitary stance against Morro Bay’s policy on vacation rentals by owners (VRBO’s), I applaud him for taking a stand against an industry that can come into our town and change residential areas into tourist-serving zones (“Neighborhood character,” Nov. 5). I moved here in 1979, and I rented from people who had purchased homes here for retirement. Renting from roughly six

different people at reasonable rents, I did this for about 20 years. Many of my friends did the same thing. Although not all out-of-town property owners do this, the fact is these second homes have provided a very important part of the workforce housing market. These places allow renters to live here full time and participate in our community. Rather than protecting this important segment of our population, the city’s VRBO policy jeopardizes their available housing. Plus it circumvents existing zoning, allowing residential zones to be used for commercial purposes. Our elected officials have allowed spec houses to be built on commercial land on Main Street in North Morro Bay—and that was suitable for tourist purposes. A bad decision. Any vacation rentals should be kept within the commercial districts of Morro Bay or maybe limited to a twoblock radius of downtown. Like many others, I wrote a letter opposing the council majority’s vacation rental plan. Again, I thank Mr. Heller for being the only one to watch out for the residents of Morro Bay. I appreciate that he’s not just a rubber stamp on issues like this VRBO policy and the new wastewater treatment plant. He not only looks at short-term financial gains but at what really benefits our town in the long term. David Nelson Morro Bay

Dear Trump supporters,

Biden won. The election is over. Despite the concerted efforts of Trump and his enablers to convince you that there was widespread election fraud by the Democrats, there is no credible evidence to support those charges. Trump’s Homeland Security appointee, who oversees election security, stated, “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.” The National Association of State Election Directors and the National Association of Secretaries of State issued this joint statement: “We can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our election, and you should too.” All of Trump’s lawsuits against state election officials have been dismissed or soon will be. His vilification of honest and dedicated election officials and pollworkers is fraudulent and mean. Biden won. You’ve been duped. Please consider Abraham Lincoln’s famous quote. “You can fool all the people some of the time. And some of the people all the time. But you can’t fool all the people all the time.” Charles Ewing Bradley

The rest of the story

In his opinion piece “Dig a Little Deeper” (Nov. 5), Mr. Fonzi mentions how Democrats lobbied and filibustered against the Civil Rights Acts of the early 1960s. He fails to mention the fact that those Southern Democrats, also known as Dixiecrats, eventually joined the Republican party. Richard Nixon and Barry Goldwater created a strategy to woo the racist Dixiecrats to the Republican party. It was called the “Southern Strategy.” It totally changed the political landscape of the South. Mr. Fonzi again uses cherry-picking of history to present a distorted view of reality. This technique of omissions, distortions, and outright lies is what has helped get us into trouble around the world. Remember the false and dubious intelligence about weapons of mass destruction supposedly held by Saddam Hussein. How about the years of false intelligence reporting out of Vietnam? I am a Vietnam veteran who spoke out against the war after I returned from ’Nam. To paraphrase a great radio commentator, Paul Harvey: Now you know more of the story. Good day.

on the warpath! O h, no! Once again, our local “woketariat” is in an uproar! This time, the irritated and indignant insurgents have fixed their sights on Cuesta College Trustee Pete Sysak, and on Paso Robles school district Clerk Chris Arends and demand their banishment for the usual liberal litany of “-isms.” What has our youthful cadre of activists in such dudgeon? Well, for one, Sysak had the temerity to call last summer’s BLM rioters “thugs.” However, most people who watched the riots on TV already came to the same conclusion— those cities didn’t loot and burn themselves. Most of us have difficulty seeing a kid hauling a big screen TV out of a broken window as merely an “engaged social activist participating in nontraditional shopping,” no matter how their apologists would prefer that they be characterized. Sysak compounded his crimes by insisting that “all lives matter,” again drawing the condemnation of the woke warriors. Perhaps they should focus their wrath on left wing icon Bernie Sanders, who in 2016 also insisted that “all lives matter,” before ever-tolerant BLM activists drove him from the stage and shut down his rally. Perhaps the biggest offense in the eyes of the social justice warrior is the refusal to obey the semantic diktats of their continually evolving nomenclature. Arend’s “crime” was arguing that no such thing as “systemic racism” actually exists, an unforgivable transgression against the liberal worldview. Still, an objective observer might also wonder why, despite all the chatter about systemic racism here in SLO, nobody has actually cited any specific practices that they feel are systemically racist. I suppose that if a particular narrative is adopted as part of the liberal dogma, we must accept on faith that it in fact actually exists, lest we be deemed loathsome nonbelievers deserving of, at the least, public censure. Since none of the examples of impermissible statements cited are actually extreme, or vary enough from the realm of mainstream conservative thought as to raise any eyebrows among objective observers, the kids are playing their trump card: The presence of such wrongheaded people in education makes them “feel unsafe.” Really? Since no allegations have been raised that Sysak and Arends are prowling their campuses with assault rifles, or are leading blood-lusting lynch mobs, perhaps the kids mean “unsafe” figuratively. These students have somehow gotten the idea from their everindulgent teachers and parents that they can veto anything that makes them feel subjectively “unsafe” by annoying them, giving them the right to drive anyone who disagrees with them off campus. If anyone truly feels physically threatened by the usual boisterous dialogue in our political discourse, they really should be under therapy in a Home for the Pathologically Fragile. I wonder

how they could even survive participation in the tumult of usual political demonstration? This is a surprising stance to take on a college campus. Traditionally, college is intended to expose students to various points of view, not serve as a finishing school for grievance mongering. When you combine the intolerance of opposing views with the carefully inculcated mantle of victimhood, then you can understand why these demandingly delicate kids need “trigger warnings” and “safe places.” Sadly, it is not just kids playing the “safety” card anymore. A chronologically adult city commissioner for Portland, a lefty advocate of defunding the police, was recently in the news after a dispute with a Lyft driver over the driver’s refusal to roll up his window, which he kept open in compliance with COVID-19 rules. After the driver terminated the ride and stopped at a gas station to let her out, she refused to leave his car, later citing her fear of rampaging “white supremacists.” In Portland?!?! Perhaps she would have felt safer guarded by a crack squad of tactical social workers who could deftly “de-escalate” any menacing bigots. Where is all of this headed? It often seems that the progressives are trying to replicate Stalin’s purges in the Soviet Union, and Mao Zedong’s 1966 Cultural Revolution. They seek to “cancel” and “cleanse” those with insufficient ardor for their revolution. Perhaps most frightening, such revolutionary fervor tends to feed on itself, and to generate even more extreme stances as the participants continually seek to outdo each other in commitment to The Cause. None dare argue for moderation or restraint, lest they be deemed insufficiently committed to The Cause and thus counter-revolutionary. And, of course, at some point the revolutionary feeding frenzy ends up like the violence of the French Revolution, in which the guillotine was eventually used whimsically, and often just as a device by individuals settling scores with personal enemies. Our local leftists should note that the recent election showed a resounding rejection of their agenda. Moderate Democrats are desperately seeking to distance themselves from the agenda of defund the police, the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, free college, etc. Other than the narrow rejection of a historically unpopular president, no “blue wave” materialized. Even in very blue California, the liberal stances on affirmative action, property taxes, gig jobs, and rent control were defeated, and Republicans gained Congressional seats. Sorry, kids, but you’re just gonna have to learn to put up with us. ∆ John Donegan is a retired attorney in Pismo Beach who has enough sense to avoid social media, and instead does his venting right here.

Opinion

The Shredder

Paso Robles blues B ack when I was a wee shredder, being a police officer sounded neat-o. They were heroes, protectors, good guys. When we played cops and robbers, everyone wanted to be the cops. Not so much lately. These days, many view the police with a jaundiced eye. How can we trust those enlisted to protect and serve us when they seem more interested in protecting the “thin blue line” than in holding their ranks accountable to the law? The sad case of former Paso Robles Police Sgt. Christopher McGuire certainly doesn’t engender much faith in the police or SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow. A federal lawsuit shows that in 2017, McGuire allegedly raped a Paso Robles woman and continued to stalk, terrorize, and harass her in the following months. She eventually reported McGuire’s actions to the Santa Cruz Police Department. What was she supposed to do? Go to the Paso Robles PD? Her report triggered a Paso PD internal investigation, which was later taken over by the SLO County Sherriff’s Office, which apparently found that McGuire had sexually harassed or assaulted multiple Paso women for years. Naturally Dow filed rape charges against McGuire, who was found guilty and is now in prison … not! Instead, Dow said “no reasonable and objective jury could find Mr. McGuire guilty of the alleged crimes.” Well, if you say so, Dan. I mean, usually

judges and juries get to hear the evidence and decide someone’s fate, but apparently all-knowing Dan didn’t think the alleged rape victim deserved her day in court. She then filed a claim for damages with the city of Paso Robles, which dismissed the claim, arguing it was filed after a sixmonth statute of limitations. I bet she felt very protected and served. The 2018 investigation supposedly discovered evidence like McGuire’s semen on the victim’s garage floor. Weirdly, “innocent” McGuire up and resigned from the department, but Dow still declined to file charges. People who are innocent usually scamper away, right Dan? And it’s reasonable to completely ignore the alleged pattern of abuse with these other women, right? Yeah, your lack of action seems perfectly reasonable, Dan, you Bible-thumping hypocrite. By the way, New Times’ request for documents in the sheriff’s investigation were denied. The only reason we’re discovering this stuff now is because the victim filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Despite arguments that her lawsuit had come too late, a federal judge agreed that the victim deserved a trial and dismissed the defendants’—McGuire and Paso Robles—motion to dismiss. It didn’t have to come to this. Dow could have taken this case seriously, filed charges, and let the victim’s claims play out in front of a jury. McGuire might be

2 Visits 1 Child

in prison and Paso wouldn’t be looking down the barrel of significant civil liability. Instead, Dow was apparently more interested in sweeping law enforcement malfeasance under the proverbial rug. Meanwhile, he’s got no problem throwing the book at Black Lives Matter protesters. You charge 20-yearold student-activist Tianna Arata with 13 crimes, but Chris “Tell Me What You’re Going to Do with My Big Cock” McGuire gets off scot-free? When is your term up again, Dan? Soon, I hope, because you’re no longer worthy of office. Speaking of Paso, I guess we can thank you and a bunch of reckless Cal Poly students for putting SLO County back in the COVID-19 purple tier. Wouldn’t it be great if people would follow health guidelines? Instead, Poly kids are partying like it’s February 2020, and Paso is apparently populated by rugged individualists who don’t believe COVID-19 is dangerous. Paso City Councilmember Fred Strong essentially said at Tuesday’s meeting that it’s not the city’s lack of guidance, leadership, or enforcement of safety guidelines that’s at fault: “It’s the people and their actions that could put themselves at risk if they don’t use common sense and good judgment,”

Strong said. “I would like to point out that the governor’s guidelines are not mandates. There is no legislative action in this regard. … People are so upset, so bothered by the way this is being handled. And many people feel an infringement of their constitutional rights. Granted, everybody’s constitutional rights end where the next person’s begin, so we have no right to intentionally endanger others.” Careful, Fred. You almost sound reasonable, though apparently, it’s not reasonable to require Paso businesses to follow state mandates. And as for Councilman John Hammon, you sound like a COVIDiot. “I’m speaking personally for myself again,” Hammon said, I guess to make sure we understand he’s not a ventriloquist’s dummy. “I am in the opinion that COVID-19 is not a major threat.” I’m sure the nearly quarter-million dead Americans and their families will be very reassured by that. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! I’m sure early December will be super interesting, virus-wise! Oh, and sorry to kick a downed dog, but Paso Robles Joint Unified School District just got a grand jury beatdown for completely demolishing its finances again. Titled, “Paso Robles School District: A Cautionary Tale,” the report details how “failures in leadership and management” led the district to “fail its students and the community it serves.” Go Paso! ∆ The Shredder wishes Paso a speedy recovery.

Cal Poly Arts presents a four-episode, live-stream music and conversation series, The Muse Hour, in partnership with Luther Burbank Center for the Arts and Tacoma Arts Live. The Muse Hour‘s Hour third episode will air live on November 22 at 7:30 p.m. featuring American folk artist and former lead singer of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rhiannon Giddens, and Italian pianist and percussionist, Francesco Turrisi. Centuries before West African music and dance influenced American culture, European music was transformed by Arabic and North African instruments and rhythms. Giddens and Turrisi trace this musical globalism by reimagining these encounters with the banjo, the frame drum and other instruments, in a musical journey journ from Africa and the Middle East, through Europe, and finally to the Americas. This event features live performances and will be followed by a moderated audience Q&A session. Tickets are $11.50 and are available through calpolyarts.org.

ho’s your favorite old-school ska band? I’m not asking about 2 Tone, ska punk, or Third Wave ska; I’m talking about all the way back to the late ’50s and ’60s, back when Bob Marley was a clean-shaven lad singing “Simmer Down” with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. I’m talking about Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster, and The Skatalites. They were the progenitors of ska— kids in Jamaica picking up R&B sounds from New Orleans radio stations and mixing in Caribbean mento and calypso and popping out songs like “Forward March” by Derrick Morgan and “Freedom Sounds” by The Skatalites and “My Boy Lollipop” by Millie Small and “Pressure Drop” by Toots and the Maytals. These early ska sounds are what inspires Morro Bay ska act Upside Ska, fronted by Eric Cotton, who in the ’80s fronted Rock Steady Posse, arguably SLO Town’s most popular club band. Cotton eventually moved north to the Bay Area, where he’s had a long career fronting the supergroup The Cheeseballs, which specializes in cover songs of all genres. Cotton is super versatile! A couple of years ago, he returned to SLO County and for fun teamed up with Rock Steady Posse’s old trumpet player Paul Irving to form this old-school ska act, which also features Jacob Odell (guitar), Dylan Johnson (bass), Antiye Mensah (drums), Lucas Pearson (keys), Brian Conaway (alto and tenor sax), and Brett Malta (trombone). A lot of these players come from Irving’s Afro-Cuban band Zongo All-Stars, so they’re tight! They play classic covers as well as a few select originals, and on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 6 to 8 p.m., they’ll be streaming a

ago as an honest exorcism, sexy and fun and freeing. Recently I handed it over to Damon Castillo (co-producer, sound engineer) and said, ‘I don’t have the blues band needed to carry this live, but if you like it, I trust you to do the right things to it,’ and he did. The narrator of this song knows that this lover’s invitation won’t bring her peace of mind, but she can’t seem to turn away. I have spent an inordinate amount of time in my life yearning for unattainable or unavailable experiences and people, and this song speaks to that yearning.” Not only is the song terrific, but Castillo’s production and accompaniment brings it to a whole new level. He plays rhythm and lead guitar, bass, and other instrumentation. He enlisted Kristian Ducharme on Hammond B3 organ and Wurlitzer to add a little groove grease to the track. Paul Griffith is on drums. The single is available at all the usual places: Spotify, Soundcloud, Apple Music, Amazon, and there’s also a neat lyric video created by Grant Thorshov on YouTube. Look it up! You won’t be disappointed. ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

She’ll take you there Rosanne Seitz’s exhibit at Art Central in SLO depicts out-of-the-way locales

H

ippocrates said, “Nature itself is the best physician.” He was certainly onto something. Disappearing into wild and remote places strips away the day-to-day stresses. Grover Beach plein air painter Rosanne Seitz knows this better than most. “When heading out to paint, I feel excited about the exploration, and when I get there, I am totally focused on what I’m doing, which is sort of a meditative process where I lose track of time,” Seitz explained during an email interview. “When I’m done and headed home, I feel relaxed, tired, but satisfied and ready to meet other life challenges.” Seitz’s current solo exhibition, I’ll Take You There, features more than 30 works created during the pandemic from “solo trips, off the beaten track, to places showing the majesty and quiet beauty of our Central Coast scenery.” It’s on display at SLO’s Art Central Art Supply through Tuesday, Nov. 24. The landscapes are “inspired by personal sketches, photos, and plein air paintings developed while driving outof-the-way backroads.” How does she decide on where to go and what to paint? “When I’m painting on my own, I have selected painting sites when on roads, visiting ranches, or parks,” she explained. “I will notice a particular way the shadows accent landforms, the way oaks are gathered or spread out, the overlapping shapes of trees, creeks, or rocks. I also look for man’s footprint on the land, such as barns, fences, equipment, and water tanks that show past use. If it speaks to me, then I will photograph it and go back there. “I do set off on driving trips and just wander, trying to hit roads I have not been on before that go way back into the countryside and are not often used,” she continued. “I’ll also go back to locations to see how it looks in different light and weather. I’m attracted to lands that are a bit more open. I found when traveling in Georgia that I was very frustrated because I couldn’t see the landforms and the distance because of all the trees.” Seitz’s paintings are lovely and calming, many of them painted plein air on location, others worked up in her studio from sketches, photos, or earlier studies. “I love to work plein air, to be out in the landscape, to absorb the places’ smells, insects, and weather, even in windy weather from my van,” she revealed. “I do prefer some shadows. I’ll photograph and take my plein air paintings home. Some are finished and some are enlarged or changed in the studio. If there’s a choice between inside and outside, I will always choose outside.” Boundless and Laguna Wetlands are both examples of paintings she worked in her studio. “Laguna Wetlands was inspired by a scene on Foothill Boulevard near O’Connor Way with no place to safely pull over or set up,” she explained. “Also, the light was fading fast so it required a studio setting. Boundless is also a studio painting with many plein air works

done before it over the years in the Carrizo National Monument.” Seitz has painted with various media, but she prefers watercolor, explaining, “I tried watercolor on a trip to Yosemite and I was a ‘goner.’ I love how the colors blend, how spontaneous and inventive you can be with your brushstrokes. It dries quickly, is easily transportable, and easy to clean up. I can work on more than one piece at a time. I can make corrections to it using the correct paper and pigments. “The difficulties are that it usually needs matting and framing under glass. It’s not as well regarded by some members of the art community and public, and conversely it is also well regarded by others as being the most difficult medium to work with,” she continued. “I find it the easiest.” In addition to calming the mind and restoring the spirit, being out in the sticks comes with added surprises. “While painting with a friend, we were mobbed by cattle that were thinking we were delivering food. Our easels got bumped around a little, and we took cover next to the vehicles until the cattle figured out we did not have food,” she said. “Nothing like a big cow coming towards you! “Another time, painting on one of the creek roads, inland from Highway 1, I was surrounded by deep bellows. It turns out that it was mating time for the cattle and the bellows were echoing up and down the tree- and bush-shrouded creek bed like having my head inside a bell. “One more story—just leaving for a painting site, I saw a bunch of turkeys under a tree. I stopped to photo as they walked towards me. They got closer and closer and squeezed under a barbwire fence. I got in my car and they surrounded me, thinking I had food for them. I started my Prius, which doesn’t make much noise, so [it] didn’t scare them off. I started

driving slowly, getting them to move out of my way, and as I sped up, they kept pace until we were racing each other.” The joys of plein air painting! If you want to get a feel for the many remote places Seitz visits, check out the show before it comes down. “I wanted to show my travel and painting during COVID-19 in hopes that sharing what I love with others will help them enjoy the landscape for a moment in time,” Seitz added. “I also wanted to put together a slideshow for my newsletter and Facebook so that it could be shared with those who don’t or can’t get out. “I visited New York City for my 70th birthday just before COVID-19. I stayed in a vacation rental on the seventh floor of an apartment complex,” she continued. “I remember the families living in that building with no front porch, back porch, open space, or parks, with a very slow elevator. It is a wonder how they keep it together during sheltering, especially with kids. “I am grateful that I live in SLO County with access to so many beautiful areas. The families that live here that can get outside with social distancing at the beach or walks in the neighborhood and still be safe,” Seitz reflected. “We’re very fortunate.” Δ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

better than me, but I was also completely wowed by the costuming and sets. These hotels, rooms, and homes just scream out early 1960s, and Beth and her mother’s dresses and styles are so spot on. Hats off to the costume designer, set decorator, and art directors. You deserve Emmys! Likewise to the music selector! So many great period songs! This is TV at its finest. Anna The sets and costuming are amazing, as is the way they’re shot. At one point, they’re in a hotel in Mexico City and the camera sweeps along up stairways and open-plan lobbies through this retro hotel. It’s really clever camera work and beautiful as well. Beth isn’t the only one who can be her own worst enemy. Mrs. Wheatley is desperate for love and affection, and a boozehound to boot. She hitches her ride to Beth’s career because, quite frankly, if she didn’t, she probably would have drunk herself to death alone in the house. Instead, she becomes Beth’s sounding board as she relives her triumphs and tears herself apart over losses. You’re right, this isn’t so much about chess as it is about the trappings of genius, but it’s also about human connection and disconnection, and how relationships can be navigated even if you aren’t inherently someone who naturally bonds. I’m definitely adding this book to my reading list; I can’t wait to see how similar or different it is to the series. I plan on a re-watch too. It hit me just right emotionally and is an absolute visual feast. This is a winner! ∆ Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and freelancer Anna Starkey write Split Screen.

o-writer Joe Talbot directs this story, co-written by Ron Richert and the film’s protagonist Jimmie Fails (who plays himself), a young black man in San Francisco who reclaims his childhood home, a Fillmore District Victorian house supposedly built by his grandfather. This charming 2019 independent film is a reminder of what’s possible outside the big-money studio system, and it establishes first-time feature-length director Talbot as someone to watch. Poetic, soulful, and elegiac—it’s a lament for what’s been lost to gentrification, a poignant examination of race and class, and a swan song to a deeply felt male friendship. There’s some breathtaking cinematography by Adam Newport-Berra and arty direction by Talbot, but what really sells this film are stars Fails and Jonathan Majors, whose performances are so perfect, so affecting, and so nuanced. Sometimes a mere look is enough to break your heart, and your heart will surely

riter-director Yuval Adler (Bethlehem, The Secrets We Keep) helms this story based on former Israeli intelligence officer Yiftach R. Atir’s 2016 book The English Teacher: A Novel, about Rachel (Diane Kruger), a young Western woman recruited by the Mossad to work undercover in Tehran, Iran. We meet her handler, Thomas (Martin Freeman), and her target, Farhad (Cas Anvar), as Israel purposely feeds faulty intelligence to Iran as they work to build their nuclear capabilities. Atir’s novel was censored purportedly because it revealed too

many spy-craft secrets. Rachel is the perfect recruit. Her mother’s dead, and her father’s estranged. She’s close to no one, and she moved around frequently throughout her childhood. Proficient at multiple languages, she takes on the role of a language teacher, building her background and bona fides over a year before she’s finally turned loose in Iran on assignment. It’s a taut, fascinating thriller, and Kruger is terrific as Rachel, both capable and steeled, and vulnerable and endangered. She’s also a little bit of a wild card. Unlike most Mossad operatives, she isn’t burdened by dogmatic ideology, but she is burdened by morals, which puts her at odds with Mossad. If you’re in the mood for a realistic and tight little spy flick, this one’s worth a couple of hours. (116 min.) ∆ —Glen

Capturing a memory Joliene Bakery creates professional French pastry at The Creamery with a nod to owner Chloe Fertel’s happy place

L

Christmas, I wanted a Kitchen Aid mixer and waffle iron and cookbooks. A lot of kids would watch cartoons after school, I would watch cooking shows,” she said. After concerts or games on the weekend, her dad, who was a professor at UC Santa Cruz, would always take her to Kelly’s French Bakery for a treat. “It was always the highlight of my week,” Fertel said. “It was just my happy place ... . To me, that was just the type of place that I wanted to spend time in and perpetuate.” Given the right time, the right place, Fertel said, she would go for it. She attended the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, graduating with a degree in baking and pastry arts. She worked at Bay Area landmarks such as One Market Restaurant in San Francisco and was the pastry chef for Silver Oak, PHOTOS COURTESY OF CHLOE FERTEL which has a handful of properties in the Napa/Sonoma area. Silver Oak was where she honed her bread baking skills. Fertel would bake bread using grapes to make the starter, which enables bread to rise. Bread starter is a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), Fertel said, a culture of wild yeast cohabitating in flour and water. “The world is just populated with yeast and bacteria, and all kinds of yeast can give you really great flavors,” she said. Grapes have natural sugar as well as yeast and natural bacteria living on the surface. So she would mash up some grapes, let that sit, and use it to leaven the breads. She would also try to incorporate the fruit in other ways, using wine to make a Bordeaux marble rye bread or grapes to create a crust on the ALL IN THE FAMILY The Fertels outside of her loaves. opened up Joliene Bakery in May 2019, “It was a lot of fun to play around with celebrating their first anniversary right after the COVID-19 pandemic caused just grapes in general, bringing food and shelter-in-place orders across the state. wine to a whole other level, if you will,” she said. She met her husband, Thomas Fertel, in Napa. He was a winemaker. She worked in fine dining. It was a lot of long hours and late nights, but it was fun. When they had time off, sometimes they would travel to San Luis Obispo, where Thomas had gone to Cal Poly, and visit friends. They moved to the area in January 2017 after he got a job offer at Wild Horse Winery in Paso Robles. Eventually, a spot in The Creamery Marketplace opened up, and they BEHIND GLASS French pastries such as fruit tartlets and pastry chef Chloe Fertel’s twist on commercial cookie decided to go for it.

The roses dance as she talks about the dream that she and her husband made a reality more than a year ago. Modeled after sweet memories of a French bakery in Santa Cruz, Fertel said she wanted to create a beautiful, bright place that looked amazing and smelled amazing. Growing up on the Westside of Santa Cruz, she played soccer, played in symphonies and orchestras, and baked. She joked that as a kid, she was foodobsessed. Always baking, always engaged in learning more about food. “A lot of kids got dollhouses or bikes for

City of San Luis Obispo Notice of Intent to Adopt Negative Declaration

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY AND INTENT TO ADOPT A NEGATIVE DECLARATION For the Active Transportation Plan (City File EID 0496-2020) The City of San Luis Obispo has completed an Initial Study/ Negative Declaration (IS/ND) for the proposed Active Transportation Plan (ATP). The ATP will be the guiding document for active transportation in the City of San Luis Obispo. The 2020 ATP will supersede the existing 2013 Bicycle Transportation Plan as the planning document that provides recommendations for the improvements to walking and bicycling in San Luis Obispo. The ATP contains various programs, policies, and recommendations pertaining to the development of pedestrian and bicycle facilities. ATP proposes expansion of and improvements to the City’s existing shared-use paths, bike lanes and routes, sidewalks, pedestrian and bicycle bridges, and crosswalks. The proposed networks are designed to build upon existing shareduse paths; to connect regional routes and paths; to provide access to key destinations; and to serve as recreational assets. The Project (under CEQA), is the adoption of the proposed Active Transportation Plan (ATP) for the City of San Luis Obispo. The ATP is a program/policy-level document, which means it does not provide project-specific construction details that would allow for project-level CEQA analysis. Furthermore, specific development is not being proposed under this ATP and adoption of this CEQA document would not authorize any development. Information such as precise project locations, project timing, funding mechanisms, material types, types of equipment and ultimately construction drawings will be required in order for future “project-level” CEQA analysis to occur. Therefore, this CEQA document has been prepared at a “program-level.” Under CEQA, a programmatic document is prepared on a series of actions that can be characterized as one large project and/or for a project that will be implemented over a long period of time. This CEQA document, prepared at a program level, is therefore adequate for adoption of the ATP by San Luis Obispo City Council. Reference copies of the Initial Study / Negative Declaration are available on the City’s website at https://www.slocity.org/ government/department-directory/community-development/ documents-online/environmental-review-documents . If you are unable to access the internet, please contact Adam Fukushima at afukushima@slocity.org or (805) 781-7590 to arrange for an alternative means to view the study, as the City offices are currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated Shelter at Home Order. A 43-day public review period (greater than the minimum required 30-day public review period) for the Negative Declaration will extend from Thursday, November 19, 2020 to Thursday, December 31, 2020. Anyone interested in commenting on the document should submit a written statement to the City of San Luis Obispo, Public Works Department, 919 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, Attention: Adam Fukushima, Active Transportation Manager, or by email to afukushima@ slocity.org, by 5:00 p.m., by December 31, 2020. A hearing is tentatively scheduled with the City of San Luis Obispo Active Transportation Committee on Monday, November 30, 2020 (with a possible hearing extension to Thursday, December 3, 2020, if necessary) to evaluate the project. Interested persons can access the Active Transportation Committee agenda at https:// www.slocity.org/government/advisory-bodies/agendas-andminutes/active-transportation-committee to locate the agenda of the public hearing for this project. A study session is tentatively scheduled with the City of San Luis Obispo City Council on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 to provide input on the plan. Interested persons can access the City Council agenda at https://www.slocity.org/government/mayor-and-citycouncil/agendas-and-minutes to locate the agenda of the public hearing for this project. A hearing is tentatively scheduled with the City of San Luis Obispo Planning Commission on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 to evaluate the project. Interested persons can access the Planning Commission agenda at https://www.slocity.org/government/ advisory-bodies/agendas-and-minutes/planning-commission to locate the agenda of the public hearing for this project.

YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER AN ASSESSMENT LIEN. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE PURSUANT TO A NOTICE OF DEFAULT AND ELECTION TO SELL, AS SHOWN BELOW. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States, or a currently dated cashier’s check drawn by a state or national bank, as specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this State), will be held by the agent of the duly appointed Trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest held by the Trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to that certain Notice of Delinquent Assessment recorded on March 10, 2020 as instrument number 2020011776 in the Official Records of San Luis Obispo County, California and the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions of Tamerlo Investments N.V., a Netherlands Antilles Corporation on August 30, 1978 as instrument number 41866 in Book 2096, Pages 914-955, as amended thereafter. The sale will be held pursuant to the Notice of Default and Election to Sell (“Notice of Default”) described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, encumbrances, or otherwise, on an “as-is, where-is” basis, to pay the sum secured by the lien, with interest and late charges thereon, advances, if any, under the occupancy of the premises and all governing documents of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, or under terms of the lien, interest thereon, fees, charges, and expenses of the Trustee, for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be as set forth below. Accrued interest, costs and additional advances, if any, may increase this figure prior to sale. It is also possible that at the time of sale, the opening bid may be less than the amount stated. The beneficiary may bid at sale and may elect to bid less than their full credit bid. Record Owner(s) at the time the Notice of Delinquent Assessment and Notice of Default were recorded: William Storm Jr. and Alisha Michelle Ball Lien Claimant / Beneficiary: Holiday Recreational Park Owners Association 100 S. Dolliver Pismo Beach, CA 93449-2997 (805) 773-1121 Duly Appointed Trustee: Hart I King Date of Notice of Default: May 29, 2020 Recording Date: July 6, 2020 Instrument No.: 2020033680 Recorded in the Official Records of San Luis Obispo County, California Date and Time of Sale: December 12, 2020 at 2:00 P.M.

LEGAL NOTICES From information which the Trustee deems reliable, the Trustee believes that the legal description and street address, or other common designation, of the real property to be sold is as follows: AN UNDIVIDED 1/875 INTEREST IN AND TO THE REAL PROPERTY DESCRIBED ON THE ATTACHED EXHIBIT “A” PURSUANT TO A DEED REFERENCING LOCKER #840 100 S. Dolliver Pismo Beach, California 934492997 The Trustee and the authorized agent of the Trustee disclaim any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Written directions to the above-referenced property may be obtained by submitting a written request to the beneficiary identified herein within ten (10) days of the first publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale pursuant to Section 2924f of the California Civil Code. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. Rather, it would entitle you to ownership of a deed evidencing an undivided 1/875 ownership interest in the real property described in Exhibit A and owned by the members of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, a California nonprofit corporation. You should also be aware that ownership of the foregoing interest subjects the owner to the provisions of the governing documents of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, including but not limited to the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions referenced above, the bylaws of the foregoing nonprofit corporation, and the applicable rules and regulations in effect for the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park. You are encouraged to investigate the nature of the property and the foregoing governing documents, copies of which are either recorded or available at the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park business office. You are also encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on the property described in Exhibit A by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (805) 7731121 for information regarding the trustee’s sale, using the reference number set forth above, 37115.031 ([Ball] - Locker #840). Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. EXHIBIT A Legal Description The lien claimant / beneficiary identified above heretofore delivered to the Trustee a written Notice of Delinquent Assessment and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The Trustee caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located, and more than 3 months have elapsed since such recordation. The party conducting the sale will be a duly authorized agent of the undersigned Trustee. WE ARE ACTING AS A DEBT COLLECTOR. AND ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Back in 1974, poet Allen Ginsberg and his “spirit wife,” Aries poet Anne Waldman, were roommates at the newly established Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. The school’s founder asked these two luminaries to create a poetics program, and thus was born the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. Waldman described its ruling principle to be the “outrider” tradition, with a mandate to explore all that was iconoclastic, freethinking, and irreverent. The goal of teachers and students alike was to avoid safe and predictable work so as to commune with wild spiritual powers, “keep the energies dancing,” and court eternal surprise. I think that would be a healthy approach for you to flirt with during the next few weeks.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika,” said Libran fashion writer Diana Vreeland. “We all need a splash of bad taste,” she continued. “It’s hearty, it’s healthy, it’s physical. I think we could use more of it. Having no taste is what I’m against.” I understand that her perspective might be hard to sell to you refined Librans. But I think it’s good advice right now. Whatever’s lacking in your world, whatever might be off-kilter, can be cured by a dash of good, funky earthiness. Dare to be a bit messy and unruly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Any legal actions you take are more likely to be successful if you initiate them between now and the solstice than if you’d begin them at other times. The same is true for any contracts you sign or agreements you make: They have a better chance to thrive than they would at other times. Other activities with more kismet than usual during the coming weeks: efforts to cultivate synergy and symbiosis; attempts to turn power struggles into more cooperative ventures; a push to foster greater equality in hierarchal situations; and ethical moves to get access to and benefit from other people’s resources.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Never follow an expert off a precipice. Nor a teacher. Nor an attractive invitation. Nor a symbol of truth nor a vibrant ideal nor a tempting gift. In fact, never follow anything off a precipice, no matter how authoritative or sexy or appealing it might be. On the other hand, if any of those influences are headed in the direction of a beautiful bridge that can enable you to get to the other side of a precipice, you should definitely consider following them. Be on the alert for such lucky opportunities in the coming weeks.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Malidoma Patrice Somé was born into the Dagara tribe of Burkina Faso. After being initiated into the Dagara’s spiritual mysteries, he emigrated to America, where he has taught a unique blend of modern and traditional ideas. One of his key themes is the hardship that Westerners’ souls endure because of the destructive impact of the machine world upon the spiritual world. He says there is “an indigenous person within each of us” that longs to cultivate the awareness and understanding enjoyed by indigenous people: a reverence for nature, a vital relationship with ancestors, and a receptivity to learn from the intelligence of animals. How’s your inner indigenous person doing? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to enhance your ability to commune with and nurture that vital source.

(July 23-Aug. 22): Psychologists have identified a quality they call NFD: “need for drama.” Those who possess it may be inclined to seek or even instigate turmoil out of a quest for excitement. After all, bringing a dose of chaos into one’s life can cure feelings of boredom or powerlessness. “I’m important enough to rouse a Big Mess!” may be the subconscious battle cry. I’ll urge you Leos to studiously and diligently avoid fostering NFD in the coming weeks. In my astrological opinion, you will have a blessed series of interesting experiences if and only if you shed any attraction you might have to histrionic craziness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Give up the notion that you must be sure of what you are doing,” wrote philosopher Baruch Spinoza. “Instead, surrender to what is real within you, for that alone is sure.” Spinoza’s thoughts will be a great meditation for you in the coming weeks. If you go chasing phantom hopes, longing for absolute certainty and iron confidence, you’ll waste your energy. But if you identify what is most genuine and true and essential about you, and you rely on it to guide you, you can’t possibly fail.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): To convey the spirit of the coming weeks, I’m offering you wisdom from two women who were wise about the art of slow and steady progress. First, here’s author Iris Murdoch: “One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats, and if some of these can be inexpensive and quickly procured so much the better.” Your second piece of insight about the wonders of prudent, piecemeal triumph comes from activist and author Helen Keller: “I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian statesman Winston Churchill said that he was always ready to learn—even though there were times when he didn’t enjoy being taught. That might be a useful motto for you to adopt in the coming months. By my estimates, 2021 could turn out to bring a rather spectacular learning spurt—and a key boost to your lifelong education. If you choose to take advantage of the cosmic potentials, you could make dramatic enhancements to your knowledge and skill set. As Churchill’ s message suggests, not all of your new repertoire will come easily and pleasantly. But I bet that at least 80 percent of it will. Start planning!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In accordance with upcoming astrological indicators, I’ve got some good advice for you courtesy of your fellow Capricorn David Bowie. You’ll be well-served to keep it in mind between now and Jan. 1, 2021. “Go a little bit out of your depth,” counseled Bowie. “And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.” For extra inspiration, I’ll add another prompt from the creator of Ziggy Stardust: “Once you lose that sense of wonder at being alive, you’re pretty much on the way out.” In that spirit, my dear Capricorn, please take measures to expand your sense of wonder during the next six weeks. Make sure you’re on your way in.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Most of us aren’t brilliant virtuosos like, say, Leonardo da Vinci or Nobel Prize-winning scientist Marie Curie. On the other hand, every one of us has a singular amalgam of potentials that is unique in the history of the world—an exceptional flair or an idiosyncratic mastery or a distinctive blend of talents. In my astrological opinion, you Aquarians will have unprecedented opportunities to develop and ripen this golden and glorious aspect of yourself in 2021. And now is a good time to begin making plans. I encourage you to launch your year-long Festival of Becoming by writing down a description of your special genius.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1969, humans flew a spaceship to the moon and landed on it for the first time. In 1970, the state of Alabama finally made it legal for interracial couples to get married. That’s a dramatic example of how we humans may be mature and strong in some ways even as we remain backward and undeveloped in other ways. According to my astrological analysis, the coming months will be a highly favorable time for the immature and unseasoned parts of you to ripen. I encourage you to get started! ∆
