SLO County supervisors hone in on two finalist maps for redistricting

T

he San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors will choose between two vastly different supervisorial maps at a pivotal redistricting hearing on Nov. 30. The divided supervisors whittled their map options down to two finalists at a contentious, all-day meeting on Nov. 19: one that makes substantial changes to the five current districts, and another that makes more minor tweaks. The former map constitutes a significant overhaul of the county’s districts. Called the Patten map, named after its Arroyo Grande creator, Richard Patten, it redraws district lines to move several cities and communities into newly formed districts. “I follow this document: the California Fair Maps Act,” 1st District Supervisor John Peschong said on Nov. 19, before making a motion to nominate the two finalists. “The rules have changed.” Among its features, the Patten map puts the majority of SLO city into a single, urban-packed district with the city of Morro Bay; removes the town of Oceano from the southernmost district; splits up the North Coast by coupling Cayucos, Cambria, and San Simeon with Atascadero, San Miguel, and Lake Nacimiento, while pushing Los Osos down to a district with Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, and Grover Beach; and generally widens the territories of the three north/south border districts. Critics blasted the map as an attempt by Peschong and the Board of Supervisors’ Republican-led majority to cement, or expand, FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

Grover Beach amends city codes to boost affordable housing 

its three-seat advantage, while dicing up the county’s regions in indefensible ways. Supporters, on the other hand, argued that it rights the wrongs of past alleged gerrymandering. “If there was any gerrymandering done 10 years ago, it needs to be corrected now,” Templeton resident Sue Rodeck said in support of the Patten map. “Cut the cancer out,” added Creston resident Greg Grewal. The second map under consideration, submitted by the SLO Chamber of Commerce, makes modest changes to the current districts. The most significant change it proposes is splitting the city of Atascadero into two east/ west districts. The map also puts Shandon into a new district and makes slight changes to the district boundaries in areas like SLO city and Edna Valley. The strongest support for a map with the fewest changes came from North Coast residents, who spoke against the Patten map and its impact to the North Coast’s representation. Under the map, Los Osos, Morro Bay, and Cayucos/Cambria/San Simeon would all belong to different districts. “Please don’t split us off,” Los Osos resident Cathy Bonnett said. “As it stands, [the Patten map] does both Los Osos and Cambria a significant disservice.” Peschong, in arguing for change, called the status quo map of districts “an incumbent protection map.” He repeated that state law has changed since 2010, and noted that the Fair

being carried out with the intent of financial gain for the city, but instead are intended to encourage production of more housing units to help those who live and work in our community,” City Manager Matthew Bronson told New Times. On Nov. 8, the Grover Beach City Council approved amending housing regulations after receiving input and policy direction over

Maps Act calls for keeping cities within single districts as much as possible. The second-term supervisor from Templeton also spoke extensively about what he described as an “unacceptable” level of public vitriol during the process. “My family’s been threatened,” Peschong said. “Take it down a notch.” Peschong, and 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton, took particular issue with a recent Tribune column written by retired area police chiefs Jim Gardiner and Rick Terborch. In the column, the chiefs urged the board not to make radical changes to the county map. Worried about the growing divide between Republicans and Democrats, which culminated in violence at the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots, the chiefs wrote that “the SLO County Board of Supervisors … have an immediate opportunity to help quell the rage—or make it worse” during redistricting. Peschong said he “didn’t appreciate” the column. Compton went further, saying the article could be construed as inciting violence. “I think it’s shameful that we’ve had individuals in our community do that, especially individuals who are supposed to uphold the law,” Compton said. The two final maps moved forward by 4-1 vote, with 3rd District Supervisor Dawn OrtizLegg dissenting. Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson strongly opposed the Patten map but said he could back the Chamber map. Ortiz-Legg reminded her colleagues that the county’s redistricting consultant said the board was not legally obligated to redraw its map based on population changes. She said she was baffled by the Patten map and the lack of coverage it offers to the district representing SLO city and Morro Bay. “Anybody knows, you drive from SLO to Morro Bay—there’s no unincorporated area there. There’s probably like six ranches and maybe a subdivision of something,” Ortiz-Legg said. “There’s not really people to represent. So that would mean that that supervisor really would be a supervisor of none.” Gibson, the board’s longest tenured member, denied that past county district maps were gerrymandered. He emphasized that the Fair Maps Act prioritizes preserving “communities of interest” over incorporated cities—and argued his North Coast district is the textbook definition of one. “Politics is about power,” Gibson said, “and if you have the votes to do something, you have the votes to do something. It seems to me quite obvious that the only reason to have an obviously noncompliant and unqualified map coming forward for final consideration is to adopt that map.” Δ — Peter Johnson the course of two public workshops held this fall. These changes will appear in the city’s Development Code and Land Use Element. According to the city, the earlier standards made it tough to increase housing production because Grover Beach is a built-out city with NEWS continued page 5

“few vacant residential lots, generally small lot sizes and low turnover of commercial properties.” Some of the amendments include allowing by-right development of residential projects, which means that city staff can green-light such plans without a separate review and approval by the Planning Commission or City Council. “Since by-right projects would no longer require Planning Commission or City Council review, enabling more projects byright could save applicants both time and money,” Bronson said. “While the exact cost savings would depend on the size and complexity of the project, at a minimum it would likely be a few thousand dollars. The time savings for the applicant could also reduce financing costs depending on the type of project.” Other updates include implementing more straightforward design standards like reducing the required number of architectural details like arches and awnings that differentiate the lower floor from the upper ones. Bronson said that the design standards haven’t been finalized yet but Grover Beach may draw ideas from the city of San Luis Obispo, which is also in the process of adopting such criteria. Grover Beach also plans to remove opacity in some of the more broadly defined regulations. For instance, Bronson said one such standard states that new residences should respect existing buildings that contribute to the

neighborhood’s “architectural character.” “Since this standard is vague and can have different meanings to different people, the city plans to modify standards such as this to be more objective and prevent subjective interpretation to ensure compliance with the State’s Housing Accountability Act,” he said. Bronson added that flexibility in construction regulations would improve housing opportunities for the homeless population, too, though it wouldn’t apply to temporary emergency housing shelters like the existing development by the 5Cities Homeless Coalition at South 16th Street and Longbranch Avenue. “The Development Code updates could make an impact on a variety of housing and homeless challenges because housing projects that have a minimum 25 percent affordable units would be allowed byright, meaning Grover Beach residents would have more affordable housing options available to them,” Bronson said. —Bulbul Rajagopal

Grand jury says Cambria is more fire resilient, but recommends another investigation

Fire resilience is a hot topic in Cambria right now. Just a month after the California Coastal Commission approved a vegetation treatment program for fire prevention, a recently released report details how the Cambria Community Services District

FIRE RISK A recently released continuity report gives updates on Cambria’s fire risk mitigation.

(CSD) and other agencies worked to mitigate the town’s fire risk after the SLO County grand jury called them to task in 2015 and 2017. The report recommends that the 202223 grand jury conduct a new investigation to determine if the Cambria CSD Fire Department and Cal Fire have complied with their own fire risk mitigation standards.

“I think it’s been a constructive and collaborative effort that the grand jury helped to facilitate,” said grand jury member Jeffrey Munks, who serves on the committee that oversees continuity reports like this one. Munks said the jury is pleased with the progress so far but added that it needs to be maintained, hence the NEWS continued page 6

recommendation that the next jury conduct a follow-up investigation. “It’s obviously a never-ending process,” he said. “Everything the community can do proactively in the area now to prepare for a fire or other emergency is an investment worth making.” Some of the accomplishments outlined in the report include fire hydrant maintenance by the Cambria CSD; a partnership between the Cambria CSD Fire Department, the SLO Fire Safe Council, and Cal Poly to fund evacuation studies; and implementing evacuation software, signage, and emergency messaging. One area the CSD has had a harder time addressing is the removal of dead trees on private property. The 2019 California Fire Code was adopted by the Cambria CSD in December 2019 and ratified by the SLO County Board of Supervisors in February 2020. However, an amendment requiring the removal of dead trees wasn’t included, the report said, “due to the potential economic and financial impact to the residents.” “With recent ecological reports suggesting, and as identified in the initial grand jury report, that between 40 to 80 percent of the Monterey pine forest in Cambria is dead or dying, it would be financially devastating to require their removal,” the report stated. That being said, the Fire Safe Council has made progress in this area, according to council manager Dan Turner. “The Fire Safe Council has been very active in the Cambria area removing dead and dying trees and French broom to protect roadways and evacuation routes,” Turner said. “We’ve been doing that since the original report, and have probably eradicated 95 percent of the French broom in Cambria.” The council is also a key partner in a recently approved public works plan that establishes a 10-year vegetation treatment program to enhance ecosystems and improve wildfire resilience. The Covell Ranch project, the first approved under the public works plan, got the thumbs up from the Coastal Commission at its Oct. 15 meeting. As New Times previously reported, the privately owned Covell Ranch is on the outskirts of Cambria and has a conservation easement held by the Nature Conservancy. Collaborators on the project include the Fire Safe Council and Cal Fire. Turner said the recommendations that the grand jury set out in its report go “hand in glove” with the goals of the public works plan and Covell Ranch Project. “It’s a dual purpose,” he said. “One to reduce the fire risk, and the other to restore the forest to a healthier condition.” —Malea Martin

Pismo extends water supply to Coastal Christian for fire suppression

Pismo Beach lent a watery helping hand to a local school to stave off possible fire outbreaks. The Coastal Christian School (CCS) received Pismo Beach City Council approval on Nov. 16 to top off its fire suppression water tanks with Pismo’s water supply when the school’s water reserve hits a low level during the fire extinguishing process.

“We got a conditional use permit approval for building a gymnasium and some classrooms to accommodate our seventh to 12th graders,” said Coastal Christian School Principal Tom Olmstead. “We will need to be able to have more water available in case of an emergency to make sure this building would be safe.” Though the school is located outside Pismo Beach city limits, officials say that it’s “within its sphere of influence.” Olmstead added that its 1005 North Oak Park Blvd. location was voted as a moderate-risk fire area that’s not under “any high-risk concern.” The water from the city is strictly meant for fire-related emergency use only. CCS’s fire system supply is well below the fire suppression requirements, which prompted school officials to ask for the city’s help. It currently has 25,000 gallons of water across five tanks for fire extinguishing and a separate tank for domestic water use. According to the council agenda report, the school fire system must be able to provide 1,500 gallons of water per minute for two hours. But the school’s on-site well can only supply a maximum of 70 gallons per minute, which means they need an 180,000-gallon reservoir for fire suppression. “However, if the school is able to utilize the city’s water system, it would only need to construct two additional 5,000-gallon tanks for fire suppression storage,” the report stated. Though Pismo Beach extended its approval, the ultimate decision lies with the San Luis Obispo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO). The city will send an extension of services application to LAFCO, and the school will be required to pay for all costs associated with permitting, construction, and any LAFCO fees. Pismo Beach Assistant City Manager and Public Information Officer, Jorge Garcia, told New Times that they expect LAFCO approval in February 2022. He added that CCS would also be billed an outside user rate for any amount of water they use from the city. Pismo Beach’s partnership with CCS is symbiotic. School officials said that approving city water supply could also benefit the larger community in several ways. Once the new water tanks are built on school grounds, CCS would open its gym and classrooms after hours for community recreational use. It would also install an antenna to improve Pismo Beach’s overall water system, specifically through the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) that can allow customers to track their usage through an online portal. “In addition to providing fire suppression, the city has been considering moving its water system to an AMI system that may require the use of antennas,” Garcia said. “The proposed agreement not only governs CCS’s use of city water, but also allows the city to install an antenna on the school’s property should the city need to do so to support a future AMI system.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

Forgotten Redistricting overlooked Oceano’s Latinos again

I

have been a property owner and resident of Oceano for more than 20 years. Oceano is the largest Latino community in the county. On April 7, 2021, San Luis Obispo County signed a contract with Redistricting Partners LLC to serve as consultants to the redistricting process for county supervisors. In this contract there are lofty claims and golden promises, which, from my personal knowledge, have not been achieved. I called attention to this issue at the Oct. 26 redistricting hearing and have received no feedback from the county or Redistricting Partners. Specifically, there has been an epic failure to outreach to the Latino community in Oceano. In their contract with the county, Redistricting Partners promises a robust collection of deliverables. To whit, the contract reads as follows (pages 10-11): “Working in Partnership with Imprenta Communications, Redistricting Partners will provide a robust public outreach program. Imprenta specializes in outreach personalized and curated for the specific community we are reaching. Our community outreach efforts are aimed at truly translating information that is clear, digestible, and personal, making accurate information easily accessible. Imprenta can help support this project by bringing their expert knowledge of reaching the Latino community in a culturally competent and successful manner. Efficient translation outreach moves beyond language and into culture. Imprenta is able to do this by focusing on specific partnerships

HODIN

with community based organizations, community and government leaders to help engage the Latino community in San Luis Obispo. We will use a grassroots/ grasstops approach where we rally the grassroots community while additionally identifying trusted leaders from the Latino communities to further amplify our messaging to these specific populations. “ … In order to efficiently share resources and collaborate with the community and our networks using our ‘New Normal’ methods and technologies, we have developed a set of alternative strategies: • Zoom town halls, redistricting meetings, and workshops. • Partnerships with businesses to provide PSA-type messaging via bilingual posters, flyers, and social posts. • Business owners, government officials, and local leadership can each host a special webinar with live translations in English and Spanish. • Webinars hosted by Latino community leaders and trusted voices. • Church outreach-write-ups, posts or post materials in church newsletters/ social media/website or announcements during services.” As far as we can determine, not one single instance of any of the above has taken place in the largest Latino community in the county. In the contract of almost $80,000 signed with Redistricting Partners, $35,000 is earmarked for the above. The community of Oceano knows very well what it is like to be secondclass citizens, to be overlooked, to be marginalized, to have our homes and streets flood, to have our children dodge cars while walking in the streets to school because we lack the basics of curbs, gutters, and sidewalks. And, it appears, the supervisors and their consultants have ignored us again.

The California Coastal Commission staff characterized Oceano as the “poster child for environmental justice on the California coast.” I believe the issue raised above is just another example of decades of institutionalized racism, social injustice, and inequitable economic development which has repressed our community. When will it end? ∆ Charles Varni is the vice chair of the Oceano Advisory Council and a member of the Oceano Beach Community Association.

Letters Illogical ramblings

What a disappointment. It seems as though New Times is drifting further to the right with each passing week. First is your insistence upon running frequent columns by Al Fonzi, a veteran whose barely readable screeds present a jumbled version of Fox News and right-wing talking points that meander so illogically that attempting to follow his arguments becomes as trying as walking a night patrol through the jungle in enemy territory. Then there is John Donegan, a “retired attorney” whose cutesy, self-satisfied columns also defy logic to the point where one wonders how he ever made it through law school. Donegan’s latest column is as baffling as it is pointless. He begins by smugly presenting the “Let’s go, Brandon” phenomenon, a frat-boy level inanity not even worth mentioning in serious discourse. Donegan then makes an astounding leap from this “instantly disprovable lie” to constructing a shameless attack upon mainstream media such as “CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc.,” conveniently failing to mention

the dangerous deceptions offered daily by the likes of Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity concerning Trump’s bogus claims that the election was stolen or that the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol was somehow a left-wing setup or a tourist stroll through a federal building. Donegan then continues his attack on the media by mentioning a few wellknow examples of overreach such as Dan Rather’s 2004 use of forged documents and a fabricated story in Rolling Stone from 2014. While these historic examples may be noteworthy as instances of shabby reporting, their relevance to Donegan’s assault on present-day media sources is tenuous at best. But Donegan, not to be silenced, charges forward, claiming that recently, “we have seen the industry repeatedly dissemble on COVID-19 and the pandemic to serve their agendas.” What sources is he talking about and what, exactly, were the lies he seems so outraged about? Donald Trump called the press the “enemy of the people,” a dangerous statement that attempts to discredit both a right enshrined in our Constitution and our most valuable tool in keeping wouldbe tyrants and demagogues in check by holding them accountable for their deeds and statements. Donegan’s column, convoluted as it is, clearly sends the same message to his readers, and New Times, in continuing to publish his columns, is perpetuating the destructive myths Donegan obviously wants to promote. It is fine to present alternative viewpoints, but from my perspective New Times continues to favor the amateur ramblings of extremist commentators such as Fonzi and Donegan over the more reasoned commentators you occasionally print.

y now, redistricting is hopefully a word you have become familiar with. There may be no single issue facing SLO County as important as this one. While the redistricting process has been haunting us for a while now, the current process the SLO County Board of Supervisors has crafted for itself is something hard to fully comprehend. The process and how the decisions will end up affecting our lives and the ripple of impacts over the next decade are nothing short of profound. If you are new to the topic or are feeling overwhelmed by it, you are not alone. How our county is redistricted impacts the future outcomes for our local economy, climate, equity, and community. Redistricting happens every 10 years in districts from Congress down to the local school board, and is a process where we redraw the boundaries of districts so that each one is roughly proportionate in population. In California, counties are governed by five supervisors. In general, counties hold a lot of power and state resources and get to designate how and when those are used (think: funding to address homelessness). These supervisors are elected by residents/voters of their county district (a designated area) where they live. This system is mandated by state policy, and every 10 years we redraw these district boundaries to accommodate for growth or population fluctuation. As the population changes according to the census, the boundaries are redrawn based on that new information, and this is the process of redistricting. In SLO County, county elected officials redraw the boundaries of their own districts, essentially choosing the areas they will oversee and who will vote for them. This should be a major red flag, as it is backwards for elected officials choose their voters when voters should be choosing their leaders. The state has acknowledged the problem and created independent redistricting commissions as a solution. These commissions are nonpartisan citizens panels tasked with analyzing data and redrawing the boundaries. SLO County’s board majority opted out of this transparent, equitable process and decided instead to take matters into their own hands. If they wanted, they could essentially change the maps just to protect their own incumbency. This is known as gerrymandering, a word we are familiar with on the national stage. But here at home!? Yes, here too. This is exactly what is blatantly unfolding right before our eyes. How the boundaries are drawn or preserved determines our political representation. SLO County has predominantly Democratic registered voters, but districts could be redrawn to carve in areas that have majority Republican voters and leave out more densely Democratic neighborhoods leading to more Republican representation, or vice versa—even in a county that might otherwise have balanced elections that swing back and forth. These boundaries matter and have a great deal to do with determining who can and will be elected in the future.

Right now, the 3-2 Republican supervisors majority favors a map redrawing the districts in a vastly different way from how things are represented currently. The Patten map, a blatant conspiracy on the part of the Republican party, chops up current districts and rewrites boundaries in a way that would leave many without a vote or a voice for the next few years and could leave others with virtually no county representative until 2024. As an example, the Patten map splits the historically aligned North Coast communities of Los Osos, Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria, and San Simeon into three districts. Currently these communities are in a single district, District 2 (Supervisor Bruce Gibson). It lumps Los Osos with Avila Beach and Oceano to become a new district; pairs Morro Bay with SLO city, and pushes the remaining North Coast communities into District 1, (Supervisor John Peschong), which includes Paso Robles and eastern SLO County. San Miguel leaves District 1 for another district, diluting the Latinx vote and giving a specific population less voice and power. The Patten map is favored by the current Republican majority because it ensures Republicans continue to control our Democratic county for the next decade. Does it feel confusing? That’s the goal. The impacts are profound. For those of us in Los Osos, if the Patten map is adopted, we won’t vote on our new supervisor until 2024, leaving us without representation for the next three years. Then there is a ripple effect—as we have seen, an elected body with a conservative majority in power can stifle progress on all policies moving forward. From public health, to mental health, to homeless services, to environmental protection, to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. With climate change, a global pandemic, and so much more showing up in big ways in our lives, decisions on the table can have big long-term, and quite literally, life-or-death consequences. This is what it looks like to lose our democracy. If you haven’t already shared why this matters to you with the board, I implore you to do so this week in an email, or show up to the next hearing on Nov. 30 at 9 a.m. I have said this here before, but it’s never been so true: The future is in your hands. No one is coming to save us from this mess. ∆ Quinn Brady (she/her) is a community advocate, organizer, and mother on the Central Coast. Send a response for publication to letters@newtimesslo.com.

The Shredder

Outrageous outrage

I

t’s hard to be mad at predictability. In the case of redistricting, the outcome of the map-narrowing process was predictable: What SLO County’s conservative majority of supervisors want, they get! And they’ll say “no” to everything else, including the map choices of 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson and 3rd District Supervisor Dawn Ortiz-Legg without a scintilla of compromise offered. “Could we … ?” “No!” “What about if we … ?” “No!” “But … .” “No!” Gibson’s exercise in futility was painful to listen to during the Nov. 19 public hearing on the county’s redistricting maps. As was 1st District Supervisor John Peschong’s indignant speech about the people who disagree with him and the way that disagreement is expressed. “You all know who I am. You all have kicked me around because of my past,” he said during the meeting, ignoring the fact that he hasn’t stopped engaging in the political exploits of his “past.” “Why is everybody always picking on me?” he and 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton opined during the meeting—striking a maddeningly similar tone to recent contentious discussions over the SLO County Clerk-Recorder and the county’s waste management debacle. Apparently, Peschong doesn’t like

being called a white supremacist— welcome to the club! The insult is très en vogue en ce moment! And Peschong really doesn’t like it when area newspaper outlets publish opinion pieces in which the authors express their First Amendment views on redistricting maps and what the outcome of the discussion could mean for the community. “I systematically disagree that we will have violence in the streets because of what’s going on,” he said. “Letters like these are unacceptable to send to the supervisors.” Must be tough to take umbrage to so much and still say so little about the discussion at hand. Of course, his little soapbox soliloquy was meant for the people who are on his side. Liberals and the media are such easy targets. He called out The Tribune, New Times, and the opposite political party. Points scored! Where was his anger when death threats, sexual insults, and more were leveled at former SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon. I guess he only cares about insane rhetoric and out-of-line insults when they’re directed at him—that’s where he draws the line! Liberals need to tone it down! People are off their rockers with partisan anger, and it has indeed ratcheted up the severity of insults, threats, and more to an almost untenable level, but being an elected official is a choice.

“Supervisor Peschong’s personal outrage Coast from Morro Bay, San Miguel over this is sort of interesting,” Gibson from Paso Robles, and Atascadero from said. “I think all of us on this dais have Santa Margarita; and the fact that only suffered insults … but that’s part of this four out of the five districts would assume business. … What I’m hearing in your responsibility for almost all of the county’s outrage, sir, is a set-up to produce a radical unincorporated residents. redrawing of the county’s makeup.” Arnold, unhappy with the competing Here, here, Gibson. interests of having Cal Poly and Ground While defending themselves against Squirrel Hollow in her district, claimed accusations of partisanship, Peschong and she would do what was best for the county his fellow conservatives said very little and all future supervisors: “I will be looking about why they chose the dreaded Patten particularly at making it more efficient, I map—a Republican fever-dream of what guess I would like to say, that it would be the future could hold for them in this reasonable for each supervisor … to not be Democratic-leaning county—and a SLO spread so thin so they can get it all done.” I guess thatMUSIC means she’ll be supporting Chamber of Commerce map to decide the chamber’s map, because the Patten map between at a future meeting. doesn’t prioritize efficiency.

NAUGHTY OR NICE? Santa Cecil is available for live events, video calls, personal letters, and more. Check out slosantaclaus.com.

JOIN THE CLUB The North Pole Club ($70) includes yearlong greetings from Santa: an heirloom letter, a membership coin, a Nice List certificate, a postcard in the summer, and a personalized birthday card.

“It has, I think, around 4,000 members, so I got connected even further now,” Santa Cecil explained. “Santa Ed has members from Australia, Europe, Africa, Canada— all over the world—and we have these Zoom meetings and these conversations and these learning experiences. I’ve been absolutely amazed at the love and the sharing and the giving these people have. This community of Santas has just been an amazing ride.” Santa Cecil studied the history of Santa, including the origins of our particular American kind of Santa, and part of his ongoing training has been to create his own Santa Cecil backstory, which has been aided by his Zoom conversations with the Santas of the Worldwide Santa Claus Network.

“When you’re sitting in an environment and somebody asks you questions, how are you going to answer those questions in regard to who you are and where you came from?” Santa Cecil mused. “It’s fun for me,” Santa Cecil’s wife, Laurie Johnson, interjected, “because I can listen in from down the hall and hear all these Santas, and it’s really fun to hear how they all have taken their own approaches to creating a persona.” If you visit Santa Cecil’s website, slosantaclaus.com, you’ll discover his wide variety of products. Yes, he makes in-person appearances, but there’s so much more—such as video greetings and personalized letters. For instance, as a child, I would have loved to have been a member of the North Pole Club ($70), which includes an heirloom letter from Santa, a Nice List certificate, a membership coin, a postcard from Santa on his summer vacation, and a birthday card. The form parents fill out asks for information like the names of pets and friends, the child’s interests and hobbies, even information about a gift the child wants but isn’t getting, which Santa can make an excuse about: “Let’s wait until you’re older for that Xbox. Instead, I hope I can bring you … ?” As far as Santa Cecil knows, he’s the only operating commercial for-hire Santa in the area, but with the ongoing Santa shortage, who knows? Next year Santa Cecil might have some competition. ✷ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

P

igs are famous for truffle hunting, Orwellian analogies, and stints on Looney Tunes. But a slew of Cal Poly students are reminding San Luis Obispo County of their most delicious offering—holiday hams. For the past 20 years, the university meat-processing plant called Cal Poly Meats has been selling high-quality pork in partnership with the Cal Poly Swine Unit. AnnMarie Cornejo, the communications specialist from the College of Agriculture, Food, and Environmental Sciences, said that the plant teaches students the science of meat production while serving SLO County locally sourced meat products. “The program is just one of many handson experiences students are able to have during their time at Cal Poly—both inside and outside the classroom—emphasizing a farm-to-fork mentality,” she said. But the Meats and Swine Unit partnership also aims to spread holiday cheer. The Swine Unit is a student-run pig program that raises roughly 40 crossbred show pig sows and 60 commercial sows. Some of the commercial animals are sold to Meats to make hams. The Swine Unit puts the money back into the program so students can improve their exposure to the process from breeding and farrowing (helping pigs give birth) to finishing. Available only during the holiday season, Cornejo said that the hams are cured for about 14 days and flavored with all-natural hickory smoke. They’re available bone-in for $4.50 a pound, and can be purchased as a whole (between 18 to 20 pounds) or half (between 9 to 12 pounds). Beginning early November, community members have been reserving the hams for upcoming holidays, starting with Thanksgiving. She added that Dec. 18 is the last day for pickup. “Students are involved in every step of the process, from processing and curing hams to packaging and organizing marketing and sales. The center anticipates that more than 200 whole

hams will be sold this year,” Cornejo said. Currently, the USDA-inspected Meats employ 20 Cal Poly students, and they hail from a variety of majors including animal science, bioresource and agricultural engineering, and horticulture and crop science. One such student is fourth-year Shelby Watts. She also works as Meats’ student manager. “The Cal Poly Meat Processing Center is the epitome of ‘learn by doing’ through utilizing industry standards and practices through hands-on experiences,” said Watts, an agricultural science major. “It allows students such as myself with little experience upon introduction to develop industry knowledge, professional skills, and serve the community in a unique way.” Like the Swine Unit’s income, proceeds from meat sales go back into the meatprocessing center so students can glean from the harvesting to packaging process. Customers can pick up hams and more— fresh beef, lamb, poultry—from the small storefront located at the back end of campus overlooking pastures on Stenner Creek Road. For Cal Poly student Nora Bales, the quality of the meat products ensured her lasting loyalty. Bales told New Times that though this year will be her first time ordering a ham from Cal Poly Meats for

HOLIDAY TEAMWORK Cal Poly Meats purchases commercial pigs from the Cal Poly Swine Unit to produce holiday hams. Proceeds from pig and ham sales go back into both departments to boost hands-on learning.

Christmas, she has been a customer since 2013 when she was an undergraduate student. She added that Meats’ customer service smoothened her complicated holiday travel schedule. “I got an email confirmation saying that I was confirmed to get a ham and they gave me a time window. But I’m going to be out of town [during that window]. So I emailed again and asked if I could pick it up at a different time. They said, ‘Absolutely!’ It was seamless and easy,” Bales, now a graduate student, said. Getting her ingredients from close to home is important for Bales. “As a Cal Poly student, it doesn’t get more local than the school that I go to. I know people that work at Cal Poly Meats, I see where they keep their animals. I know that they’re making these products

with high ethical standards,” she said. Leaders from the meat plant also credit the locally sourced nature for a strong base of returning customers. Cornejo added that some of them included “alumni-operated companies in nearby counties” that purchase hams annually for their employees. Jim Douglass, a 1979 Cal Poly graduate who oversees the meat-processing center, said that regulars are especially active during the holiday season. “We have a lot of repeat customers during the holidays who have made Cal Poly hams a part of their holiday tradition,” he said. “Students get to see first-hand how their hard work is valued.” ✷ Reach Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal at brajagopal@newtimesslo.com

Supply chain issues and staffing struggles are hitting businesses on the Central Coast, but owners are finding creative ways to get ahead of the holidays

BY MALEA MARTIN

I

t’s almost that time of the year: PostThanksgiving, Black Friday is upon us, and the countdown to gift-giving season commences. But as supply chains grow increasingly strained, business owners may find themselves struggling to fill the shelves—and in turn, holiday shoppers may have a harder time filling their stockings. “When we were in the heart of the pandemic, we had a lot of people not going out, not a lot of people in stores,” San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Jim Dantona said. “The speed at which you needed to restock shelves, get new products, was still at a bit of a trickle pace. When the doors kind of reopened in June … [businesses] didn’t have anything ready to meet that huge new demand that came over summer. So what we’re seeing here is a culmination of lots of triggers going off at the same time.” Businesses got inventive to fill the gaps that supply chain issues had widened. “It’s weird stuff that we’re having a hard time getting,” said Matt Pearce, owner of Old San Luis BBQ. “Takeout service products dried up across the country, so we were having to kind of scrounge and get weird paper products to do our disposable takeout containers.” Pearce likened it to a game of Whac-AMole. “As soon as you get one thing resolved, something else pops up,” he said. Even more challenging for Pearce is building back his staff after the pandemic, something he’s been struggling with since February this year. “It’s taxing,” he said. “The business has bounced back, but the opportunity to meet our customers’ and our clients’ needs, through supply chain or through labor shortages—it’s been a real big challenge this year.” As a barbecue restaurant, Pearce said his business hits its peak during the

summer months, so the holiday season may provide a bit of breathing room to continue rebuilding staff. For others, the holidays are the peak of the year. “I’ve got friends that own businesses downtown, and they’ve been busier in the summer months than they typically are during the holidays months,” Pearce said. “Now, they’re just like, ‘I don’t know what we’re going to do in the holiday months, if already this year is blowing records out of the water.’” Cool Hand Luke’s in Santa Maria is expecting a busy holiday season, but the steakhouse can’t find the staff it needs to reach its full potential. “I don’t have any people coming in to interview. I’ve done sign-on bonuses, incentives for my current employees to bring people in,” owner Shawn Van Pelt said. “I think there’s a lot of people who left the whole industry in general because they had to find other forms of income to support their families.” SLO Chamber President Dantona thinks that the pandemic led a lot of people to reimagine what it means to PHOTO BY MALEA MARTIN

STAFFING UP Old San Luis BBQ owner Matt Pearce said one of the biggest struggles this year has been finding enough staff.

lineup. This approach was already foundational to the Holiday business pre-pandemic. But Guide now, as supply chains stall, 2021 co-owner Jenny Kompolt said her store’s scrappy, self-made spirit may just be its saving grace in getting through the holiday season. “It started out of art therapy for me, and creating things, essentially out of things that people would throw away or see as junk,” Kompolt said of her business, which she co-owns with maker Melissa James. “The store is filled with lots of things that we create and our staff creates, in addition to other makers that we admire and bring in.” In this way, “we create our own supply and demand,” Kompolt said. “We’ve been affected by [supply chain issues], but it has not been a huge detriment to us because we ONE OF A KIND The Junk Girls on Monterey Street make so much of what we in SLO expects a busy holiday season, but owner Jenny have,” she continued. “If Kompolt said her store’s largely handmade selection will help avoid some of the supply chain issues that many we were low on one type of other businesses are tackling. thing, we would hopefully find something that we make a living, and that may be could create to fill that. … Fortunately, contributing to the staffing struggle we have that bandwidth.” restaurants are now facing. Shopping small makes an impact on “Some of these folks that were in the local economy every holiday season, restaurants, or in employment where it but this year, it may also be a matter disappeared for a very long time, they of necessity as online stocks run low remember that, and don’t want to put and big-box stores struggle to fill empty themselves back in the situation where shelves. that might happen again,” Dantona said. “If people are producing things locally, Dantona predicts that business will and aren’t being constrained by the level out for a lot of local stores over supply chain, they will have the inventory the holidays, particularly for the retail to meet the demand,” SLO Chamber CEO industry—not for lack of demand, but lack Dantona said. of supply.

Parading again Downtown SLO’s staple holiday event is back on Dec. 3 for its 45th anniversary BY PETER JOHNSON

O

n the first Friday night in December for almost a decade, Carl Dudley of Pacific Western Bank has stood at the corner of Chorro and Palm streets in downtown San Luis Obispo and faced a line of cars and floats that stretched for blocks. When 7 p.m. strikes, and anticipation builds, Dudley, a volunteer since 2006, kicks off the SLO Holiday Parade. One by one, floats look eagerly to him for the green light to start their struts through downtown. Thousands of locals line the sidewalks, sitting in lawn chairs and covered with blankets. “Everyone has to go through me,” a chuckling Dudley told New Times about his role as parade starter. “I get to see everybody. That’s the real plus.” Dudley looks forward to playing this ceremonial role at SLO County’s staple holiday event every winter. But last year, his streak at the starting line came to an unexpected end. Due to COVID-19, the parade was canceled, and the typical 10,000 or so locals who are involved were told to stay home. “It was sad,” Dudley said. “You have tradition, and then all of a sudden you have

a hole. I enjoy the parade. It brings the kid out in you. It’s a good family event for us as part of the downtown community.” This December marks the triumphant return of the SLO Holiday Parade. The pandemic can’t keep it down for another year. On Dec. 3, the parade—and Dudley—will be back as if it never left, for its 45th anniversary. “It is so exciting,” said Bettina Swigger, CEO of the Downtown SLO association, which puts on the parade. “We’re ready to flex those muscles again.” With a California Dreamin’ theme, the parade will look mostly like it has in years past, with some pandemic-related quirks, changes, and additions, according to Swigger. For starters, the parade will have to navigate around downtown’s new parklets, which were installed at eateries last year to facilitate more outdoor dining. But Swigger said the parklets actually add a fun new element to the parade, as diners can watch it up close over food and drinks. And “never fear,” she said, there’s still plenty of sidewalk left for families and spectators to plant down their lawn chairs as always. The parade route will also remain the same. “There is plenty of room to do that,”

HOLIDAY SPIRIT The SLO Holiday Parade (pictured) returns on Dec. 3—with a few changes—after being canceled last year due to COVID-19.

Swigger said. “There are 28 parklets, not all are on the parade route.” Downtown SLO has some special plans in store to respect and recognize the reality of the pandemic, the toll it’s taken, and the people who have put themselves on the front lines to fight it. “We are honoring our first responders and health care workers,” Swigger said. “We’re going to start off our parade with workers from Tenet Health and Dignity Health [hospitals] and San Luis Ambulance. That’s a way of saying thank you.” Then, about 80 parade groups— representing schools, businesses, nonprofits, and organizations of all stripes—will take to the streets to showcase their creativity and holiday spirit.

The California Dreamin’ theme, voted for by locals in a social media poll, is going to bring out the glorious diversity of the Golden State, Swigger said. “It’s a pretty well-encompassing theme,” she said. “We can expect to see a lot of beach themes, maybe people with surfboards.” While canceling the parade last year was a difficult decision for Downtown SLO, Swigger said the silver lining was that it forced the association to come up with other COVID-19-safe holiday offerings for families to enjoy downtown. Some of those are returning this season, by popular demand. “We’re really going all out,” Swigger said. “The installations in Mission PARADE continued page 26

NOVEMBER 30, 2021 A Global Generosity Movement ... Locally on the Central Coast Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. In partnership with Giving Tuesday’s global network of leaders, partners, communities, and generous individuals, this event is set to spark an increase in grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world. People can show their generosity in a variety of ways to participate in #GivingTuesday—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts. The movement is currently focused on opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while practicing physical distancing. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity—to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.

’ve been following Los Osos native, queer writer, and Cal Poly Librarian Caleb Nichols’ music career for many years now, watching his songwriting quietly blossom while he went about his life: earning a master’s in library and information science from San Jose, an English master’s from Cal Poly, a Ph.D. in creative and critical writing from Bangor University, Wales. He doesn’t really fit the bill for someone signed to Kill Rock Stars, the independent record label originally known for championing underground punk acts in the Olympia, Oregon, music scene. And yet here he is. “I’ve signed a deal with iconic indie label Kill Rock Stars and am releasing music with them this fall—a single today, an EP in November, and in summer 2022, a full length LP,” he explained a few weeks ago. “I’m really excited to share ‘Words That Stay’ with you, which is my entry into Kill Rock Stars’ 30th Anniversary covers compilation Stars Rock Kill. The song is originally by Kill Rock Stars signees Tele Novella from their album Merlyn Belle.” This Tuesday, Nov. 30 (8 p.m.; allages; $10 at the door), at SLO Town’s A Satellite of Love, Caleb Nichols will play an EP release party for Clarion, his new four-song collection to be released on Nov. 26. Its lush, quiet sound has hints of Simon and Garfunkel and includes his cover of “Words That Stay,” the title track, “Clear As Day,” and “He’ll Love You Better”—each track a sonic gem. Former SLO Town act Little Wings (aka Kyle Field) will open the show. “SLO is such a small music community, and I’m very proud to be a SLO-based artist on a major indie label,” Nichols added. “Sixteen-year-old me, playing hooky from Morro Bay High School, listening to a CD copy of Either/Or by [Kill Rock Stars recording artist] Elliott Smith—purchased from Boo Boo’s, of course—would be very stoked indeed!”

QUEER AS FOLK Cal Poly librarian, queer writer, and newly signed Kill Rock Stars recording artist Caleb Nichols plays SLO’s A Satellite of Love on Nov. 30, to promote his new EP Clarion.

Good call J ason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) co-writes and directs this sequel to the supernatural comedy, Ghostbusters (directed by his father Ivan Reitman), about a team of parapsychologists who in 1984 save New York City from an invasion of malevolent ghosts and evil demigods. This time around, a broke, single mom, Callie (Carrie Coons), inherits a weird old farm, house, and barn in small town Summerville from her longestranged and now dead father, Dr. Egon Spengler (played by Harold Ramis in the original) and moves her family there. Her children—teenager Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and brilliant but odd adolescent Phoebe (Mckenna Grace)—are none too happy about the move, but then they begin to see signs of paranormal activity and discover their grandfather’s workshop and ghost busting tools, and find themselves at the center of another ghost invasion. (124 min.)

Glen After the debacle that was Ghostbusters: Answer the Call (2016), I’m happy to report this course correction has returned the franchise to its original fresh and funny splendor. It really does everything right: It puts its kid audience front and center with a couple of kid characters they can project themselves into, it finds a suitable role for funnyman Paul Rudd as seismologist Mr. Grooberson, who’s lazily teaching summer school so he can keep an eye on all of Summerville’s weird seismic activity, and it lovingly connects the plot to the 1984 original, bringing back in a third-act cameo from its original cast … well, except Harold Ramis, who died in 2014 and to whom the film is dedicated. It’s funny, touching, and it features welldefined characters, terrific acting, and fun special effects and driving stunts. It feels very Spielbergian in the way it centers on the twin storylines of Trevor, who’s chasing after town hottie Lucky (Celeste O’Connor) and friendless, nerdy Phoebe and her budding friendship with Podcast (Logan Kim). And Rudd makes an excellent love interest for mom Callie. It was the dose of nostalgia fans have been waiting for. Anna This is such a fun, nostalgic

It was super smart to center this on the kids—it introduces the old films my smile. Both Wolfhard and Grace are flying high in their young careers right to a whole new audience and gives those of now, and it is well deserved. Logan Kim us old enough to have seen the original a fresh-faced new watch. Rudd is such a great is a newbie to the big screen, but he has a bright future ahead—especially funny man and adds a whole lot here, but in comedy. The kid is a natural! I my favorite part was definitely Phoebe and her new friendship with Podcast. Those two couldn’t help but think of Martin are simply adorable. When Trevor unearths Short’s character in Only Murders in the Building who also Serial-style obsessively a dust-covered, not working old Cadillac in the garage with some odd additions, he gets recorded everything for a podcast. It so it up and running. Combined with Phoebe’s gracefully nodded to the first film without trying to either be it or outdo it, and that found ghost trap and proton pack, the crew right there is the key. It doesn’t take itself is ready to take on the havoc-wreaking too seriously and honors the genius that ghosts. Unfortunately, their greenness in came before.

Sure, you can as a plot device, we’ll just have to assume wait to watch this at home, but if you’re small town Summerville has different safe to go to the theaters, this one is rules. This film shouldn’t be a comparison totally worth venturing out for. Δ to its 1984 predecessor—that film is far too much a classic for it to be a fair fight.

irected by and starring Robin Wright, this quiet and introspective film follows Edee’s self-imposed exile in the woods following the tragic and sudden loss of her family. She has a simple cabin and some land, but no idea how to survive. It seems like a suicide mission, perhaps willing herself to die of starvation alone. She’s near death from the cold and hunger when Miguel (Demián Bichir) finds her and brings in Alawa (Sarah Dawn Pledge), a nurse who cares for her. Once well, and though cautious of any sort of friendship, Edee asks Miguel to teach her how to hunt and fish, and soon the two start to unfold their complicated and painful pasts to each other, which bear more similarities than Edee could have imagined. She soon learns the ways of the mountain and how to use the land to her advantage.

She’s beginning to heal and have confidence in her ability to keep herself alive, but when Miguel leaves his faithful dog with her and fails to return, Edee makes the hard choice to head into town. It’s foreign to her after all of her solitude, and Wright does a great job as a filmmaker conveying how the lights and sounds of even a small town scare and overwhelm Edee. It’s a movie in which not a whole lot happens, but Wright cuts to the emotional quick and offers up a small but bright glimmer of hope at healing. If you’ve got HBO, this one is definitely worth a watch at home. (89 min.) —Anna

erman actor Matthias Schweighöfer was the funniest part of Zack Snyder’s early 2021 zombie film Army of the Dead, about a group of mercenaries that infiltrate quarantined zombie-infested Las Vegas to steal millions from an underground vault. His safecracker Ludwig Dieter, who in this film is going by Sebastian Schlencht-Wöhnert, was a combination of arrogance, timidity, and childlike wonder. And saying he was the funniest is actually saying something because the film also included Tig Notaro as a deadpan hilarious helicopter pilot. In this film, Dieter is a friendless, geeky bank teller who studies safecracking, but his skills are unproven. He’s recruited to an underground safecracking ring that competes against other safecrackers. That’s where he proves his worth

to ringleader Gwendoline Starr (Nathalie Emmanuel) and her heist gang, tough guy Brad Cage (Stuart Martin), expert hacker Korina (Ruby O.

Their goal is to rob three banks, each containing famous safes built by legendary locksmith Hans Wagner, and each owned by billionaire Bly Tanaka, the man who sends the mercenaries into Vegas in Army of the Dead. Meanwhile, the zombie apocalypse has begun. It doesn’t try to reinvent the heist thriller, but Schweighöfer proves he can play a commanding lead and put together of engaging film. (127 min.)

roof and Gather breads and pastries are hot commodities in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. From farmers’ markets and weddings, to direct-to-consumer channels and wholesale accounts, business is bustling for proprietor Kaitlin Munoz, and she couldn’t be happier. Born and raised in Lompoc, Munoz began her baking career as a child, whipping up creations from her EasyBake Oven. Her mother would place orders from outside her bedroom window, with Munoz ringing her up on a toy cash register. She soon made the transition to a real oven, collaborating with her grandmother “as she shared all her baking secrets with me over the years,” she said. “It wasn’t long before I became the

go-to baker for all family holidays and events, eventually leading to my first ‘real’ baking business making cakes for birthdays and weddings during high school,” she said. Her passion for food and baking led her to pursue a degree in food science at Cal Poly. “After graduation I started a food company (VegThisWay) with fellow Cal Poly graduates where we developed a fruit and veggie snack for kids,” she said. “I later joined a sports nutrition company (GU Energy Labs) in the Bay Area as a product developer, where I had the opportunity to develop several new products, including flavored nut butters and stroopwafels, honing my product formulation and flavor science skills. PHOTO BY CHERISH WHYTE “During my time in the Bay Area, I explored every bakery I could find to gain inspiration for what I knew I eventually wanted to build for my career,” she added. “A shared passion for baking with a mutual friend led me to a small jar of a 45-year-old sourdough starter, which launched my next baking adventure, the world of bread making.” ON THE RISE Proof and Gather proprietor Kaitlin Munoz sells her artisan baked goods at locations throughout the region, After a year of including SLO’s Thursday night farmers’ market and Dare 2 baking for friends Dream Farms in Lompoc. and colleagues from

her cramped San Francisco apartment, Munoz decided it was time for bigger and better things, including a return to the Central Coast. A lover of travel as well as food, she and her husband first embarked on a six-month-long backpacking trip through Nepal, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Iceland. “Then [we] finally made it back to our happy place—San Luis Obispo,” to pursue her lifelong goal of building a bakery, she said. Munoz initially launched her business from her registered cottage food kitchen in Lompoc in late 2020, then the following year relocated to San Luis Obispo and opened a larger-scale commercial kitchen. The name Proof and Gather “is inspired by my scientific background and love of bringing people together through food,” Munoz said. “The word ‘proof’ is a term used in bread and pastry making where the dough is left to rest and rise to allow for fermentation and leavening.

“Proofing is a part of everyday life as a baker. After proofing and baking comes the real fun—gathering together to share the joy of good food.” Munoz specializes in artisan baked goods, including sourdough bread, muffins, cookies, tarts, crackers, and more. “What my customers love the most are my unique sourdough flavors, including sun-dried tomato basil, honey oat, slow roasted garlic, apricot walnut, and the indulgent dark chocolate sourdough,” she said. Additionally, she regularly sells out of her cookies, with classic chocolate chip being her best seller, followed by chocolate peanut butter, gingersnap, and espresso snickerdoodle. At Harvestly, which connects local vendors with consumers, Munoz’s products are a big hit and draw rave reviews from clients in Santa Barbara and SLO counties, according to SLO FLAVOR continued page 56

Environmental Impact Report - Notice of Preparation and Notice of EIR Scoping Meetings Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant Decommissioning Project ED2021-174 / DRC2021-00092 The County of San Luis Obispo as Lead Agency will prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant Decommissioning Project. The project is a request by Pacific Gas and Electric for a County Development Plan/Coastal Development Permit and Conditional Use Permit for both Coastal and Inland components of decommissioning and site restoration. Portions of the project site are in retained Coastal Commission jurisdiction as well. An EIR Scoping Meeting is an opportunity for agencies and interested members of the public to obtain information about the project, ask questions, and provide oral comments on the scope and content of the EIR. The County scheduled a total of five virtual scoping meetings; remaining meeting times and login details are as follows: Wednesday December 1, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82051282377 or by Phone: (669) 900-6833 then enter Webinar ID: 820 5128 2377 Wednesday December 1, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83781876105 or by Phone: (669) 900-6833 then enter Webinar ID: 837 8187 6105 Saturday December 4, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81440062317 or by Phone: (669) 900-6833 then enter Webinar ID: 814 4006 2317 NOTE: Each meeting will include the same presentation of project information. DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED PROJECT PG&E’s proposed decommissioning activities include: decontamination and demolition of approximately 65,000 square feet of structures and facilities; grading cut and fill of approximately 524,000 cubic yards; site disturbance and restoration 976 Osos Street, Room 300 | San Luis Obispo, CA 93408 | (P) 805-781-5600 | 7-1-1 TTY/TRS Relay planning@co.slo.ca.us | www.sloplanning.org of approximately 71 acres; removal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste materials; and construction of new facilities, including a new security building, firing range, and Greater Than Class C Waste (GTCC) facility to be located in a PG&E Owner-Controlled Area. Existing structures would also remain within the PG&E Owner-Controlled Area, including the 500 kV and 230 kV electrical switchyards and the Independent Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) facility where spent nuclear fuel will continue to be stored until an interim storage facility or permanent repository is available. PG&E also proposes to retain the existing Eastern and Western Breakwaters and the Intake Structure for potential future use by others. Decommissioning waste, including low-level nuclear waste, would be transported offsite for disposal via truck, rail, and barge. The project involves three additional locations for potential rail transfer that would require local-agency permitting approval: the Pismo Beach Materials Handling Facility located at 800 Price Canyon Road in Pismo Beach; a rail site located in Santa Barbara County (2820 W. Betteravia Road); and, a rail site within the City of Santa Maria (1599 A Street). Only one of the two sites outside of San Luis Obispo County would be used. The project is proposed in two phases: Phase 1 (2024 through 2031) includes Pre- planning and Decommissioning activities; Phase 2 (2032 through 2039) includes completion of Soil Remediation, Final Status Surveys, and Site Restoration. The Diablo Canyon project site is located at 3890 Diablo Canyon Road, approximately seven miles east of Port San Luis. The proposed project is within the Public Facilities land use category in the San Luis Bay Coastal Planning area and within the San Luis Bay Inland Sub Area of the San Luis Obispo Planning Area. All issue areas of potential impact as mandated by the CEQA Guidelines (Appendix G) including Alternatives, Cumulative Effects, and Growth Inducement, will be addressed in the Environmental Impact Report to be prepared for the project. No determinations have been made as to the significance of these potential effects. Such determinations will be made in the EIR after the issues are thoroughly analyzed. The County invites interested parties, and all affected, responsible, and trustee agencies, to suggest specific areas of analysis to be addressed within these general categories, or other issues not included above, to be considered in the EIR. There are no Cortese listings or GeoTracker sites located on the Diablo Canyon or Pismo Beach railyard sites. At this time, there is no tentative hearing date for the project. FUTURE SITE RE-USE POTENTIAL Following Phases 1 and 2 of decommissioning and termination by the NRC of DCPP’s Title 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 50 license (10 CFR Part 50, or Part 50), the DCPP site, excluding the owner-controlled area, would be available for development. Therefore, the EIR will evaluate possible reuse concepts for the DCPP site, which will be referred to in the EIR as Phase 3. Because these uses would be far in the future and would require separate land use and CEQA analysis for permitting, the reuse concepts will be evaluated at a program level. This evaluation will be provided to identify potential environmental impacts or issues associated with the possible reuse concepts. The County is still developing ideas for future site reuse. However, the EIR may compare the possible environmental impacts of the following reuse concepts: • University Campus • Developed Recreation (car camping to glamping) • Day Use Recreation (e.g., trails) • Research Facility

COUNTY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING & BUILDING NOTICE OF TENTATIVE ACTION / PUBLIC HEARING WHO: County of San Luis Obispo Planning Commission WHEN: Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 09:00 AM. All items are advertised for 09:00 AM. To verify agenda placement, please call the Department of Planning & Building at (805) 781-5600. WHAT: Hearing to consider a request by Hitachi Zosen Inova USA, LLC to amend an approved Conditional Use Permit (CUP) (DRC2015-00122) and conditions of approval to increase the allowable weekly tonnage intake of the anaerobic digestion plant (ADP) from 700 tons per week to 850 tons per week. The annual tonnage limit of 36,400 tons would remain consistent with the approved CUP and conditions of approval. All other aspects of the ADP, which are included in the approved CUP, would remain the same and there would be no new construction or operational features. The proposed project is within the Industrial land use category and is located at 4388 Old Santa Fe Road, approximately 850 feet east of Hoover Avenue and Old Santa Fe Road, south of the community of San Luis Obispo. The site is in the San Luis Obispo Sub Area (North) of the San Luis Obispo planning area. On November 15, 2016, the County of San Luis Obispo (County) adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND; SCH #2019049030) for the Hitachi Zosen Inova USA, LLC Project (project) and approved a Conditional Use Permit. In accordance with Section 15164 of the State CEQA Guidelines, the County of San Luis Obispo has determined that this Addendum to the adopted MND is necessary to document changes or additions that have occurred in the project description since the MND was originally adopted. The changes proposed are relatively minor in nature and, as documented above, would not result in any new significant environmental effects or a substantial increase in the severity of previously identified significant effects. Additionally, no new information of substantial importance that was not known and could not have been known with the exercise of reasonable diligence at the time the previous MND was adopted has been identified. The County has reviewed and considered the information contained in this Addendum and finds that the preparation of subsequent CEQA analysis that would require public circulation is not necessary.

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) 543-7088 or visit this Internet Web site www.eloandata.com, using the file number assigned to this case 42073. 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 or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (805) 543-7088, or visit this internet website www.eloandata.com, using the file number assigned to this case 42073 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. Date: 11/8/2021. All American Foreclosure Service, 1363 Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 (805) 543-7088. Sheryle A. Machado, Certified Trustee Sale Officer November 11, 18, & 25, 2021

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Gratitude is the featured emotion. See how amazing you can make yourself feel by stretching it to its limits. Newsletter.freewillastrology.com

ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries author Chris Brogan says, “Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.” That’s the best possible counsel for you to hear, in my astrological opinion. As an Aries, you’re already inclined to live by that philosophy. But now and then, like now, you need a forceful nudge in that direction. So please, Aries, go in pursuit of what you want, not what you partially want. Associate with the very best, most invigorating influences, not the mediocre kind.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There’s a Grateful Dead song, with lyrics written by John Perry Barlow, that says, “You ain’t gonna learn what you don’t want to know.” I propose you make that your featured advice for the next two weeks. I hope you will be inspired by it to figure out what truths you might be trying hard not to know. In so doing, you will make yourself available to learn those truths. As a result, you’ll be led on a healing journey you didn’t know you needed to take. The process might sound uncomfortable, but I suspect it will ultimately be pleasurable.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

(April 20-May 20): Author Kurt Vonnegut wrote wistfully, “I still catch myself feeling sad about things that don’t matter anymore.” If similar things are running wild in your head, dear Taurus, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to banish them. You will have extra power to purge outdated emotions and reclaim at least some of the wild innocence that is your birthright. PS: There’s nothing wrong with feeling sad. In fact, feeling sad can be healthy. But it’s important to feel sad for the right reasons. Getting clear about that is your second assignment.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author and philosopher Albert Camus was a good thinker. At age 44, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature—the second-youngest recipient ever. And yet he made this curious statement: “Thoughts are never honest. Emotions are.” He regarded thoughts as “refined and muddy”—the result of people continually tinkering with their inner dialogue so as to come up with partially true statements designed to serve their self-image rather than reflect authentic ideas. Emotions, on the other hand, emerge spontaneously and are hard to hide, according to Camus. They come straight from the depths. In accordance with astrological potentials, Scorpio, I urge you to keep these meditations at the forefront of your awareness in the coming weeks. See if you can be more skeptical about your thoughts and more trusting in your emotions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I’ll walk forever with stories inside me that the people I love the most can never hear.” So says the main character in Gemini author Michelle Hodkin’s novel The Evolution of Mara Dyer. If that heart-rending statement has resonance with your own personal experience, I have good news: The coming weeks will be a favorable time to transform the situation. I believe you can figure out how to share key stories and feelings that have been hard to reveal before now. Be alert for unexpected opportunities and not-atall-obvious breakthroughs.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): A study of people in 24 countries concluded that during the pandemic, over 80 percent of the population have taken action to improve their health. Are you in that group? Whether or not you are, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to go further in establishing robust self-care. The astrological omens suggest you’ll find it easier than usual to commit to good new habits. Rather than trying to do too much, I suggest you take no more than three steps. Even starting with just one might be wise. Top three: eating excellent food, having fun while exercising right, and getting all the deep sleep you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo-born scholar Edith Hamilton loved to study ancient Greek civilization. She wrote, “To rejoice in life, to find the world beautiful and delightful to live in, was a mark of the Greek spirit which distinguished it from all that had gone before.” One sign of Greece’s devotion to joie de vivre was its love of play. “The Greeks were the first people in the world to play,” Hamilton exulted, “and they played on a great scale. All over Greece, there were games”—for athletes, dancers, musicians, and other performers. Spirited competition was an essential element of their celebration of play, as was the pursuit of fun for its own sake. In resonance with your astrological omens, Leo, I propose you regard ancient Greece as your spiritual home for the next five weeks.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo singer-songwriter Florence Welch of the band Florence and the Machine told an interviewer why she wrote “Hunger.” She said, “I looked for love in things that were not love.” What were those things? According to her song, they included taking drugs and performing on stage. Earlier in Florence’s life, as a teenager, “love was a kind of emptiness” she experienced through her eating disorder. What about you, Virgo? Have you looked for love in things that weren’t love? Are you doing that right now? The coming weeks will be a good time to get straight with yourself about this issue. I suggest you ask for help from your higher self. Formulate a strong intention that in the future, you will look for love in things that can genuinely offer you love.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Poet Renée Ashley describes what she’s attracted to: “I’m drawn to what flutters nebulously at the edges, at the corner of my eye—just outside my certain sight. I want to share in what I am routinely denied or only suspect exists. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to occur.” Although I don’t think that’s a suitable perspective for you to cultivate all the time, Sagittarius, I suspect it might be appealing and useful for you in the coming weeks. Fresh possibilities will be coalescing. New storylines will be incubating. Be alert for the oncoming delights of the unknown.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What could you do to diminish your suffering? Your next assignment is to take two specific steps to begin that process. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’re more likely than usual to see what’s necessary to salve your wounds and fix what’s broken. Take maximum advantage of this opportunity! I proclaim this next chapter of your life to be titled “In Quest of the Maximum Cure.” Have fun with this project, dear Capricorn. Treat it as a mandate to be imaginative and explore interesting possibilities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It is a fault to wish to be understood before we have made ourselves clear to ourselves,” wrote my favorite Aquarian philosopher, Simone Weil. I agree. It’s advice I regularly use myself. If you want to be seen and appreciated for who you really are, you should make it your priority to see and appreciate yourself for who you really are. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to make progress in this noble project. Start this way: Write a list of the five qualities about yourself that you love best.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Nigerian author Ben Okri, born under the sign of Pisces, praises our heroic instinct to rise above the forces of chaos. He writes, “The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than our suffering.” You’ve been doing a lot of that excellent work throughout 2021, dear Pisces. And I expect that you’ll be climaxing this chapter of your life story sometime soon. Thanks for being such a resourceful and resilient champion. You have bravely faced but also risen above the sometimes-messy challenges of plain old everyday life. You have inspired many of us to stay devoted to our heart’s desires. ∆
