SLO passes emergency ordinance ‘clarifying’ COVID-19 enforcement powers

W

hile the city of San Luis Obispo clashes with a local gym chain over its adherence to state COVID-19 regulations, on Jan. 19, the SLO City Council passed an emergency ordinance that reinforces the city’s authority to issue citations to COVID-19 rule violators. The ordinance passed unanimously as the city’s Administrative Review Board is hearing multiple appeals from Kennedy Club Fitness that are challenging three $1,000 citations issued to the gym that came amid its public decision to allow indoor exercise in defiance of state health orders. In November 2020, Kennedy managing partner Brett Weaver said in public statements that the gym, which has four locations in the county, would continue its indoor operations with safety precautions despite the state’s purple tier restrictions, citing the financial hardships of complying. In recent arguments to the city Administrative Review Board—which can reject or sustain appeals of citations—Kennedy Club Fitness asserted that because the city had not passed an ordinance codifying the COVID-19 orders, it cannot legally enforce them. At the start of the pandemic, the city instead adopted an emergency resolution, which SLO officials say has the same effect as an ordinance during the crisis. But Kennedy Club Fitness attorney (and local state Assemblymember) Jordan Cunningham argued to the three-member review board on Jan. 7 that “resolutions are different creatures fundamentally than ordinances.” Cunningham added that there was “no evidence” provided that Kennedy’s decision to allow indoor activity at the gym “imperils anybody’s life.”

A controversial sign prompts new Atascadero police chief to call for dialogue

Atascadero’s new police chief isn’t having a typical first few weeks on the job. A large sign indicating that police officers are “blue by day” and “white by night” showed up on an Atascadero resident’s lawn, prompting Police Chief Bob Masterson to ask for an open dialogue with the sign’s creators. On Jan. 14, the Atascadero Police Department posted a photo of the sign, which juxtaposes a silhouette of a police officer against one of a Ku Klux Klan member, on its Facebook page with a statement from Masterson. Masterson, who joined the Atascadero Police Department on Dec. 8, 2020, told New Times that he was taken aback when several community members alerted the city about the sign. “My first thoughts were quite frankly that, I don’t think that there are any racist officers in Atascadero. My first thought is clearly that is what the sign was reflecting, officers were cops by day and part of the KKK by night,” Masterson said. “It was kind of disheartening for me to see something like that.”

WORKING OUT SLO has cited Kennedy Club Fitness (pictured) three times for allegedly violating COVID-19 health orders by allowing indoor exercise.

“That’s because there is no such evidence,” Cunningham said in the Zoom hearing. “It’s conjecture.” The review board decided to continue the hearing to Jan. 20 (after New Times’ press time) to hear more arguments from both sides about the ordinance vs. resolution debate. The questions raised caused SLO City Attorney Christine Dietrick to bring back an emergency ordinance to the City Council to eliminate any ambiguity. “Obviously, the emergency ordinance is the highest level of legislative action,” Dietrick told New Times. “While we felt we had the mechanisms in place to enforce without doing that, the concerns or confusion raised by the Administrative Review Board just caused us to take a step back.” Officials and council members were careful to say that they believe their initial resolution provided the necessary authority to enforce

the state’s COVID-19 orders. Dietrick said cities across the state have adopted ordinances, passed resolutions, and issued direct orders from their emergency services directors to achieve that end. “We saw a mix of approaches,” Dietrick said. To date, the city has levied $19,000 in fines to seven businesses in response to verified COVID-19 violations. The Jan. 7 appeal hearing was the first to reach the Administrative Review Board during the pandemic, Dietrick said. Another appeal is scheduled for Sally Loo’s Wholesome Cafe, which the city cited for serving indoors and doing table service. “The vast majority of our enforcement on COVID with businesses has been education and outreach … to try to help people with compliance,” Dietrick said. “This is not the norm.” Δ —Peter Johnson

In the Facebook post, Masterson said he believes that everyone has the right to freedom of speech, and that he initially wanted to reach out to the residents directly to start a conversation. “I want to understand their opinions and whether they feel it is reflective of our local Atascadero Police Department. After careful consideration, I decided I would not want my actions to be perceived as interference with their freedom of speech,” Masterson’s Facebook statement read. He told New Times that he also didn’t want his actions to be perceived as hostile, and that Facebook can often be used as a tool for community dialogue. As of press time, the post had more than 570 comments, 350 reactions, and 117 shares. “Smart response Chief Masterson - let whomever has such serious accusations against our police come forward and put a face to their complaints,” Facebook user Ruth Erin Lewis commented on the post. Katie Leigh Brennan, another commenter, said, “That’s not freedom of speech. That’s terrorism. It’s put there to threaten and intimidate.” From being a police chief in Kern County to a director of a faith-based nonprofit that provided

gang prevention to youth, Masterson said that through his 34 years in law enforcement he hasn’t seen or experienced a lot of racist officers. But he acknowledged, there are “bad apples.” He said he was raised to treat everyone equally and especially in law enforcement, where he and others took an oath to do that. “Knowing the reputation of Atascadero, I mean, when I applied for this agency I did my research and by all means, everyone I spoke to said Atascadero Police Department has a very excellent reputation,” Masterson said. “Let’s face it, race and racial issues used to be something we didn’t talk about. I think when we stopped talking about it is when we lost the ability to have decent conversations and people have become so bifurcated on issues.” The Police Department updated its initial post, stating that the occupants of the residence where the sign was placed weren’t in town when the sign went up, were unaware it would go up, and have since removed it. Masterson said he still hasn’t heard from the sign’s creators but he welcomes meaningful conversation. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, he would have told anyone from the community to join him for a ride-along to learn what he and NEWS continued page 6


JANUARY 22, 2021 COMMEMORATES 48 YEARS since the Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, established the legal right to an abortion. Yet nearly half a century later, abortion is a right in name only, because access largely depends on someone’s income, race, and ZIP code. Since 2011, more than 480 abortion restrictions have been enacted across the country. For many people, abortion access is already out of reach. As we mark Roe’s 48th anniversary, we acknowledge that the legal right to abortion is not enough. It’s time to fight for policies that create a world in which we have full control over our health, our bodies, and our lives. We must ensure that reproductive freedom is a reality for every person.

Together, we pledge to protect and expand access to safe, legal abortion in 2021. Dawn Addis

other officers in the local department do. For now, he said, residents can still have a COVID-safe conversation with an officer. The community, he said, should feel safe with the Atascadero Police Department because it treats everyone equally. “It’s a hard profession we have, and we see the worst of society, a lot of the times, and yet the attitude and the disposition of my officers seems to be stellar for the vast majority of the time,” Masterson said. “They can go out and see the absolute worst atrocities, and they come back the next day with a smile on their face, seeing what they can do to help society. That speaks volumes to their heart.” —Karen Garcia

Pismo Beach is only SLO County city without grants for businesses

Pismo Beach is the sole city in San Luis Obispo County that hasn’t offered direct financial aid to local businesses amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and city staff say that’s partly because the city has been unusually busy for the past several months. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, cities throughout SLO County have offered assistance in various forms to local businesses and nonprofits struggling to survive amid coronavirus-related shutdowns and operational restrictions. Most, including Pismo, waived some operational fees for businesses early on in the pandemic, turned normally public spaces into areas now used for outdoor dining, offered assistance in paying for now necessary safety and cleaning equipment, and are working to promote local shops through marketing and cityfunded discounts. But unlike every other city in SLO County, Pismo doesn’t have a grant program geared toward its small businesses. Paso Robles Economic Development Manager Paul Sloan said his city funneled about $200,000 worth of federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds to 34 Paso businesses in the form of grants ranging from $4,000 to $6,000. Arroyo Grande has put at least $60,000 in CARES Act funding toward grants for its small businesses so far, and Grover Beach recently launched its fourth round of such grants. When the most recent round is wrapped up, Grover Beach will have distributed $750,000 to its local businesses, paid for by its general fund, the CARES Act, and Senate Bill 1090, a law that provided SLO County with millions of dollars to mitigate the economic impacts of the upcoming Diablo Canyon Power Plant closure. But Pismo Beach City Manager Jim Lewis said his city is in a different situation than its neighbors. Pismo Beach has been busier than ever throughout the coronavirus pandemic. The town and beach have seen record numbers of visitors, and Lewis said sales tax and transient occupancy tax receipts indicate that Pismo’s business community saw increased revenue from June to October of 2020 compared to the same time in 2019. Plus, Lewis said, Pismo didn’t get much help from the CARES Act. CARES Act

funds were allocated to cities generally based on population, and as the smallest city in SLO County, Pismo received the least funding. While Pismo received just around $100,000 from the CARES Act, according to data provided on the California Department of Finance website, Paso Robles received more than $380,000, and more than $566,000 went to San Luis Obispo. The little CARES Act funding Pismo did get, Lewis said, went entirely to cleaning and personal protective equipment, COVID-19-related signage, and overtime for public safety personnel when increased security was needed amid full shutdowns at the start of the pandemic. “We knew that additional federal monies that would far surpass anything the city could do and would provide substantial assistance would be available and they now are,” Lewis wrote in an email to New Times. “Monies started flowing this week. State and even more federal dollars are anticipated.” Not all of SLO County’s cities have used the CARES Act to fund their grant programs. Morro Bay has provided $134,000 worth of grants to its businesses, and according to City Manager Scott Collins, those funds came entirely from Diablo Canyon Power Plant relief funds. Atascadero pulled $250,000 from its general fund to put toward small businesses emergency grants, which Deputy City Manager Terrie Banish said went to 64 businesses. Jocelyn Brennan, president and CEO of the South County Chambers of Commerce, said that while a number of hotels in Pismo would likely agree that business is booming, the same can’t be said for other smaller businesses. “Many are struggling,” she wrote in a message to New Times. —Kasey Bubnash

Dow postpones public questions on LGBTQplus rights

On Jan. 19, Gala Pride and Diversity Center was set to have its routine board meeting with an agenda item that included a question-and-answer segment with SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow intended to openly address their concerns regarding his appearance on certain radio shows and his comments on the topic of religion. However, an unusually large number of people planned to attend the meeting, which prompted Dow to decline Gala’s invitation and offer the board a private meeting where they could address their concerns. Gala released a statement on the change prior to the Jan. 19 meeting, stating that when Dow accepted the invitation to attend, the board indicated that although its meetings are public, they are generally attended by the board and about five other people. “Now that it seems like a large number of people are attending, including the press, District Attorney Dow has declined to attend. Instead, the District Attorney’s Office offered a private meeting with board members to address our concerns. We hope that genuine discussion may be facilitated in this way, and we welcome the opportunity to sit down with the district attorney. However, the board believes that the questions asked are in the public interest and intends to relay the salient points once this private meeting has taken place,” the statement read.

6 • New Times • January 21 - January 28, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

Assistant District Attorney Eric Dobroth emailed a statement to New Times, saying that Dow and the District Attorney’s Office are committed to engaging in ongoing communication with the LGBTQplus community and ensuring they receive swift, unbiased justice and equal protection under the law. “We are dedicated to aggressively prosecuting hate crimes and assuring LGBTQ-plus victims receive all available resources through our Victim Witness Assistance Center,” the statement read. “Last night’s meeting with Gala’s Board was not canceled but postponed. As this is not the end, but only the beginning of conversation with Gala. We feel a more intimate setting with the board to address concerns and envision solutions will produce a more genuine conversation. A larger forum would be happily welcomed after that conversation begins.” Dobroth said that the District Attorney’s Office is available to meet with anyone interested in discussing criminal justice issues in the county. To schedule a meeting, constituents can reach out to Dobroth at (805) 781-5819. Gala Executive Director Michelle Call said the board had questions about Dow’s Aug. 11, 2020, appearance on Washington Watch with Tony Perkins. The Southern Poverty Law Center states that Perkins is president of the Family Research Council, an anti-LGBTQ hate group based in Washington, D.C. Those questions included asking Dow about his views on LGBTQ-plus rights; how his religious beliefs affect his actions as the county’s district attorney; how atheists or people of no faith can expect to be treated; and whether Dow believes same-sex sexual activity or gender nonconformity to be sinful and, if so, how it informs his decisions as a prosecutor. Call said the board also had concerns about comments that Dow made on local radio host Dave Congalton’s Jan. 6 Hometown Radio show. Dow and Congalton discussed a SLO Superior Court judge’s decision to recuse the entire District Attorney’s office from prosecuting the multi-codefendant case against July 21 protesters and Dow’s declaration that SLO County is a “sanctuary county” for church and worship. On the show, Dow said that he’s an advocate for law and order, as the district attorney and a judge must remain neutral. He said that the fundraising email Judge Matthew Guerrero referred to as evidence of a “clear conflict of interest” to remove Dow’s office from the protesters case is indicative of a broader movement. “What I believe is happening is the underpinnings of our criminal justice system, law and order system, being torn apart and dismantled by people with some very extreme agendas,” Dow told listeners. “It’s OK for me to say that as a district attorney. I run to represent the people in our community and enforce the law the way the majority of people in our community want it enforced.” —Karen Garcia

SLO County moves forward with COVID-19 vaccinations despite supply concerns Despite a slowdown in COVID-19 vaccine supply and the recent shelving of 4,400 doses due to concerns about allergic reactions, San Luis Obispo County Public Health says it’s moving forward on its

vaccination plan—scheduling about 4,000 appointments per week, with plans to open three clinics in the county. Vaccine bottlenecks across the state are impacting SLO County. Public Health has received fewer doses than expected in recent weeks and, coupled with a Jan. 17 directive to pause administration on one lot of Moderna vaccine due to its higher than normal rate of allergic reactions, SLO County is beginning to postpone some second dose appointments in favor of maximizing first dose appointments. County officials say that they are following new guidance that says delaying second doses a few weeks will not impact the effectiveness of the vaccine. “We have recently received guidance from the state that this kind of dose conversion is allowed and they recommend up to 50 percent of second doses be converted to first doses if needed,” county Public Health spokesperson Michelle Shoresman told New Times. SLO County has opened its vaccination appointments to any local resident over age 75, as well as front-line health care workers, about 11,000 of whom are already vaccinated. On Jan. 15, the county filled its roughly 4,000 appointments slots for the week of Jan. 18 within a few hours. County and city leaders are currently working to set up three public vaccination clinics: one at Cuesta College, one at the Paso Robles Event Center, and another in Arroyo Grande. In a vaccine update at the SLO City Council meeting on Jan. 19, Fire Chief Keith Aggson said he expects all three clinics to be up and running and administering 400 to 450 doses per day by Jan. 25. What’s less clear to local officials is how much vaccine SLO County will get from the state each week. “I sure wish I had that answer for you,” Aggson told SLO City Council members. “It’s really varied. … What they get is what they get. This is very challenging because it makes it so we have to go to week-to-week scheduling.” Shoresman with Public Health said that SLO County hopes to eventually run its vaccine clinics seven days per week (instead of five) but it doesn’t have the vaccine supply to do that yet. “We do hope to get to that point,” she said. “Additionally, though, we also hope that will be getting more health care provider types enrolled to receive and administer vaccines so that people can begin going to the places where they are used to receiving care to receive vaccines.” —Peter Johnson

Pismo Beach considers solutions to its increase in litter

Despite COVID-19 and the resulting travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders, Pismo Beach has actually been busier than usual throughout the pandemic. The excess of visitors combined with an increased reliance on takeout food orders and the completion of Pismo’s pier plaza, according to city staff, have created a citywide trash problem. “One of the big things that we saw was that restaurants moved to a takeoutonly model, and they didn’t have trash facilities,” Public Works Director Ben Fine said at the Jan. 19 Pismo Beach City Council meeting. “And so when you look NEWS continued page 7


News NEWS from page 6

at the amount of trash generated by the takeout food versus the number of cans that we had, there was an imbalance. There was much more trash than we’re capable of really collecting and storing between pickups.” At the meeting on Jan. 19, Fine presented a 30-page report on Pismo’s trash issues and potential solutions, including different kinds of garbage cans and outreach efforts that would encourage beach visitors to dispose of their trash properly. Although Pismo added a huge number of waste and recycling bins to its existing stock with the opening of the pier plaza, the report states that most trash cans in the downtown pier area are typically filled within just a few hours of being emptied. When trash cans are full, city staff say people tend to set their trash on top of or next to the cans, allowing wind and birds to scatter garbage throughout town and onto the beach. In October 2020, Pismo Beach City Council voted to reinstate one full-time maintenance position and add three parttime maintenance positions, all who are dedicated to picking up litter and emptying trash cans in the pier plaza area. Even more staff will come on in the summer, and Fine said he believes those workers will all help the city improve the situation. The rest, he said, depends on whether the city can promote better human behavior through education and trash bins that are easy to use and access. Finding the right bin itself requires a

delicate balance, Fine said. Trash bins without lids tend to be easily picked through by seagulls and other birds when full or close to it, but it’s a generally accepted psychological fact that people hate to use garbage cans with flaps and lids that have to be touched. Even when Pismo’s lidded bins aren’t full, Fine said people tend to set their trash on top of or around the them rather than inside, presumably to avoid touching the cans. “Well it doesn’t take long for the wind to come blow this stuff away,” Fine said. Pismo recently piloted a high-capacity compacting trash can, which can hold more than five times a regular can and alerts workers when it’s full, but Fine said city staff found several issues with that option. It’s costly, went into error mode frequently, and holds so much trash that it was nearly impossible for workers to empty it. “So really we need to focus on education,” Fine said. Anti-littering signage is posted all around Pismo Beach, and the city is also part of the SLO County Integrated Waste Management Authority’s social marketing effort to educate the public on the dangers of litter, Central Coast Clean. Still, Councilmember Marcia Guthrie pushed city staff look further into lids and trash cans that would be difficult for birds to get around and easy for people to use, including those with foot pedals. “I think we can all agree that the pushfly things are gross and icky and don’t belong in public trash cans,” Guthrie said. “But it’s easy to change the tops.” ∆ —Kasey Bubnash

In separate instances, only months apart, their sons died by taking a drug neither boy knew contained fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid. Velci said her son, Emilio Velci, 19, was a hard worker who held two jobs and lived with his brothers and roommate. Emilio worked at Les Petites Canailles in Paso Robles five nights a week and was a youth sports referee on Saturdays who was starting to coach as well. The weekend of March 6 had been a long one for Emilio as he juggled work and spending time with visiting family members and friends. He was also dealing with wisdom teeth pain that his mother said had been hurting on and off for about four months. Emilio was still insured under his mother’s health plan so he asked her about getting surgery to remove his wisdom teeth. “Typical teenager, you know, trying to get him and coordinate to get an appointment was difficult,” Velci said with a wave of her hand and a smile. Acquiring an appointment had also been challenging because at the time Velci was changing her insurance provider. On Friday, March 6, 2020, Velci saw her son and made plans to get together the following week to set up an appointment to get his wisdom teeth removed. Velci didn’t know it would be the last time she saw her son. She was also unaware that an acquaintance of Emilio’s was talking to him about Percocet pills he could sell him to ease the pain in his mouth. Emilio decided to purchase three Percocet pills from the acquaintance two

by fentanyl is happening all over the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 81,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12 month period. The CDC found that synthetic opioids, primarily illicitly manufactured fentanyl, appeared to be the primary driver of the 38.4 percent increase in overdose deaths compared to the same 12-month period ending in May 2019. Reports of the prevalence of fentanyl and fentanyl overdoses has increased over the last several years, but talking about a loved one who’s died from it is still taboo. Velci’s friend Cruz-Sarantos said families on the Central Coast don’t talk about how their loved ones die from a drug like fentanyl, which she believes is a huge problem. “That’s why [Velci] and I are doing this because we know who our boys were. Our boys were loving humans,” Cruz-Sarantos said. She left the Central Coast after 20 years because of the “small-town gossip” that was starting to spread about her son. Dylan Kai Sarantos, 18, struggled with substance use disorder, was diagnosed bipolar, and suffered from anxiety and depression. “He was really fighting hard every day to live with his bipolar diagnosis and marking off the days of his sobriety on his calendar,” she said. The small family moved to Los Angeles County, where Dylan received treatment, therapy, and was under the watchful eye of his mother, a former nurse. Dylan purchased what he believed was ecstasy from a dealer on the social media app Snapchat, but the pills contained high levels of fentanyl, which he died from taking on May 8, 2020. Cruz-Sarantos and Velci don’t want their son’s deaths labeled as overdoses because they believe their sons were murdered by the individuals mixing and selling these drugs to people who are unaware of the ingredients. “I just think it’s so sad that these good humans aren’t here anymore,” Velci said. “But the drug dealers get to live, and it’s so frustrating and it angers me.” ∆

Waste woes

PHOTO COURTESY OF PATTI TOEWS

Since the start of COVID-19, the trash we generate and where we dispose of it has changed

I

t was sometime around early November 2020 when Scott Pickford started to notice all the trash building up around downtown San Luis Obispo on his walk to work every morning. Disposable masks littered the bushes and lawns that lined the route to his office. Paper napkins, receipts, and discarded clothing tags filled the gutters of the streets. Downtown, he found that the city’s trashcans were overflowing, and even when they weren’t, there were still used coffee cups and beverage bottles sitting atop the cans. So Pickford decided to pick up the trash himself. He bought a grip picker widget and started carrying it and several trash bags with him on his way to and from work. “It is shocking to me how much I’ve gotten every day,” Pickford told New Times. “And it’s not just the takeout thing.” Since the coronavirus pandemic’s start in March 2020, the trash we create and where we dispose of it has changed. With many businesses closed and restaurants limited to takeout, local landfills are taking in less commercial waste while receiving more from residential customers. A study published in August 2020 by the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health found that waste production has increased across the globe in countries where physical distancing measures and shutdowns have been instituted during the pandemic, particularly among residential and medical facilities. Safety and cleanliness are now priorities, and that’s led to an increase in the consumption and production of single-use products, like disposable masks, latex gloves, plastic bags, and sanitary wipes, the study found. That’s somewhat concerning for local waste management experts, who want to ensure that people are mindful of which of these possibly unfamiliar products can be recycled and which belong in the trash. And SLO city staff say they’re still working to adapt to the spike in public parks usage and the overflowing trash bins that have come with it. Still, Pickford isn’t convinced that

COVID-19 is entirely to blame for all the trash he picks up on his way to work, which adds up to an average of about two full-sized garbage bags a day. His record, though, is 3 1/2 bags one way. The most common offenders, Pickford said, are napkins, receipts, and clothing tags, followed closely by cups, cans, and bottles. He also finds a lot of masks now, including both the disposable and cloth kinds, and takeout boxes left out on tables outside local restaurants, which currently aren’t supposed to offer busing services. “I honestly don’t believe it’s a COVID thing,” Pickford said, “other than all of us, when we’re depressed, go for the easy.” But that’s one of the biggest challenges with sustainability efforts in times like these, according to Patti Toews, program director at the SLO County Integrated Waste Management Authority. With health and safety taking its rightful place front and center and so many people struggling financially, Toews said it’s understandably easy for people, businesses, and government entities to overlook the ways in which their habits impact the environment. “You are struggling to just feed your kids, right? This is the dilemma. You can’t even begin to think about the environment,” Toews told New Times. “Or if you’re sick with COVID you can’t even begin to think about the environment.” That attitude, she said, combined with changes in the ways we shop and eat have led to increases in waste and recyclables throughout the county. People are shopping online even more than normal due to physical distancing efforts, and she said that uses up a lot of extra shipping packaging that wouldn’t be needed if shopping locally. The same goes for takeout and grocery shopping, where it’s not as easy as it once was to bring in reusable containers and bags for your food. Then there are all the regulations businesses either have to follow or have enacted to reduce coronavirus transmissions. Those practices often include single-use products, sometimes unnecessarily. Bright Life Playschool

When nonrecyclables like plastic bags end up at recycling facilities, they get caught up in machinery and take staff time and effort to remove. Styrofoam, bubble wrap, disposable facemasks—none of those are recyclable. And above all else, Toews said, avoid buying and using plastic at all costs. Only rigid plastics, like shampoo and water bottles, can be recycled. And while materials like aluminum can be recycled infinitely, even rigid plastics can only be recycled once. “We’re creative,” she said. “Because I don’t need another Styrofoam container to fill up my garbage can or accidentally get littered.” The city of SLO actually saw a decrease in waste generation through much of the pandemic, according to Solid Waste and Recycling Coordinator Jordan Lane. In March through October 2020, Lane said the city saw a 14.6 percent decrease in gross waste compared to the same time period in 2019. That equates to about 7,500 tons and includes residential, commercial, construction, and demolition trash and recyclables. While Lane said it’s difficult to say what led to that decline, residential and commercial statistics offer a hint. “Residential garbage generation has increased by 5 percent between the two years, while commercial garbage has dropped by 10 percent,” he wrote in an email to New Times. “Both of these numbers can be explained by the current situation—having more people at home and some businesses not currently operating.” Although Lane said there’s still work to be done—the city’s public trash cans have been especially difficult to keep up with recently—he hopes this downward trend in trash creation, at least in the city of SLO, continues through the pandemic and even after. Δ

STUCK ON PLASTIC Workers attempt to remove plastic bags from the machinery at a recycling facility.

owner Kimberley Love told New Times in a previous interview that she was required by health regulations to change gloves between each of her 60 students when taking entry temperatures, until she eventually got the go-ahead to use sanitizer between each student. And a SLO County ordinance set to go into effect in April 2020 that would have banned Styrofoam was delayed an entire year due to the pandemic and fears over reusable products. “But if you have the luxury of, No. 1, having a job, you have a roof over your head, you’re doing good, you haven’t been affected by COVID,” Toews said, “then by all means I expect people to really think, really think, about OK do I really need Amazon to bring three different packages to me? And can I have them combined in one trip to my house?” Even amid COVID-19, Toews said there are ways to stay semi-sustainable. Although most grocery stores won’t let their cashiers fill up reusable bags for customers, some allow customers to bag groceries themselves. If not, Toews said bagging can be done outside or at the car. When ordering takeout food to bring home, ask restaurants to leave out the bag and “extras,” like cutlery and napkins. Figure out what products can and can’t be recycled (cheat sheets can be found online at iwma.com). Toews said that when in doubt, people tend to throw trash in their recycling bins assuming someone else will figure it out. “Unfortunately,” she said, “it’s doing more harm than good.”

New energy era

M

ore than 100,000 residents and property owners on the Central Coast will start service with a new power provider this month. Central Coast Community Energy (3CE) is launching in Paso Robles, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, and Arroyo Grande, as well as Santa Maria and unincorporated Santa Barbara County. The “flipping of the switch” for these communities, which took place ceremonially on Jan. 14, is a continuation of 3CE’s southward expansion from the Santa Cruz/Monterey/San Benito tricounty area, where the agency originated, to SLO and Santa Barbara counties. Now, 3CE will have nearly a halfmillion customers that span five counties and 26 cities (Atascadero and unincorporated SLO County are the lone local holdouts). 3CE leaders and proponents promise that the switch will reduce members’ electricity bills and localize energy governance. “It is bringing decision-making about energy closer to the people,” said Das Williams, 1st District supervisor for Santa Barbara County, in comments made at the Jan. 14 ceremony. “It’s been my dream for some time that some of the prosperity that has taken place in clean energy jobs in the six counties of the Bay Area would start filtering southward. … That dream might become a reality.” Initially called Monterey Bay Community Power, 3CE first launched in 2018 as a community choice energy agency under state law. The Central Coast energy agency is one of 24 operating in California, and these entities purchase power on behalf of their customers while PG&E or the incumbent utility continues delivering the electrons. The net benefit of community choice energy, according to proponents, is to get local control over power sourcing and the ability to reinvest profits in the community. As a pitch to customers, 3CE is offering a 2 percent rate reduction from PG&E and a carbon-free energy portfolio. It also touts a goal of 100 percent renewable energy generation by 2030. “That’s a whole 15 years ahead of California’s energy goals,” said Bruce McPherson, a Santa Cruz County supervisor who’s considered the founder of the agency. “This expansion today really accelerates the environmental and economic benefits.” Officials emphasized that the accelerated all-renewable target is really put in reach thanks to 3CE’s expansion. With a larger customer base and more buying power, 3CE can now chase more substantial solar or wind projects than it could before, which can then account for a larger share of its power load. To Williams, that’s a critical benefit to the Central Coast. “The economies of scale allow us to move away from what I’d characterize as more symbolic elements of energy procurement and toward more investment in substantive, long-term contracts for renewable energy, and even building such facilities ourselves,” Williams said. Customers have the option to opt out and stay with PG&E for their power generation services. Instructions on how to

do so will arrive in the mail, or customers can visit 3cenergy.org for details. The ability for residents to choose their power provider is an important element of 3CE to Santa Maria Mayor Alice Patino. Patino initially opposed her city joining 3CE—thinking it was “too good to be true”—but now she represents Santa Maria on the agency’s policy board and “feels good about it.” “If it brings security as far as energy to our community and if it lowers our rates, that’s important to people,” she said. “I don’t see any hidden agendas out there. I think people are pretty honest there on the board. And people have the ability to opt out.” Carpinteria and Goleta will join 3CE in October—these communities are the first to join within the SoCal Edison service territory. After that, 3CE officials say they have no intention of expanding farther north, south, or east.

• The Land Conservancy of SLO County recently purchased the Santa Rita Ranch, a 1,715-acre property sitting atop Highway 46 West. Under the nonprofit’s ownership, the ranch, which features “towering valley oaks, dense bay laurel forests, and a remarkable freshwater lake,” will be permanently protected, according to a Jan. 14 press release. The property will be maintained as a sustainable working cattle ranch, wildlife preserve, and future nature education center. The Land Conservancy raised nearly $6 million over three years to fund the project, and it continues to seek donations for the project, the press release said. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson wrote this week’s Strokes and Plugs.

Caldwell sinks to new low Local media host spreads lies about Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill

L

ocal right-wing media host, lobbyist, and failed candidate for Congress, Andy Caldwell, sunk to even lower lows on his radio show on Jan. 6, after far-right domestic terrorists goaded by President Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol in an attempt to overthrow American democracy.. After our criminal president whipped up his MAGA mob to march on the Capitol to supposedly engage in a “peaceful protest,” hundreds of his supporters—with well-known far-right extremists, including neo-Nazis, neoConfederates, white supremacists, and QAnon conspiracy theorists—pushed through and attacked Capitol Hill Police, disrupting the official count of the Electoral College votes that formally granted the presidency to its rightful winner, Joseph Biden, putting lawmakers into lockdown and evacuation mode. What was plain to see to many of us who warned about the danger of Trump, his rhetoric, and his most extreme followers since 2016 was now clear as day to all Americans: that they posed a serious authoritarian and fascistic threat to our way of life, both in our constitutional republic’s democratic process and the rule of law. But if you live in the silo of the right-wing MAGAsphere like Caldwell, and believe Trump’s big lie of election fraud, the best answer is yet another lie—antifa did it.

HODIN

“I believe, and we’ve seen some pictures, antifa claimed they were going to infiltrate these protest rallies to raise a ruckus,” Caldwell said. “And the Proud Boys said they were going to do the same, and they both said they were going to dress incognito.” This conspiracy theory, yet another paranoid and baseless claim to deflect from the extremism in America’s farright fostered by the Republican Party, was also floated by Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (Florida) once the House resumed the process to formalize the election results. Anti-fascist organizers often called antifa, who are not formally bound only by the desire to resist fascist groups like the Proud Boys, was very much nowhere to be found in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6. The Proud Boys, however, were there for the attack on the Capitol, along with neo-Nazi and white supremacist extremists who were brazen enough to livestream their ransacking of the halls of Congress. I would also like to remind everyone

that the Proud Boys, a far-right group dedicated to street violence in the name of Donald Trump, were asked by Trump to “stand back, and stand by” during the presidential debate. Now we know what he was referring to. And believe it or not, Caldwell was sharing this baseless claim with the most unfortunate (for him) guest possible to book that day—Joe Arpaio. Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff and protoTrumpist figure known for his cruelty to inmates, especially immigrants from Mexico and South America, was found guilty of contempt of court for ignoring federal orders to stop arresting immigrants based solely on the suspicion of undocumented status. Trump, as we have seen him do with several of his criminal friends and supporters, pardoned Arpaio in 2017, all while mainstreaming the former sheriff’s campaign of cruelty against immigrants and refugees. “To what degree do you think [antifa] infiltrated this to just give Trump a bad name?” Caldwell asked. Arpaio replied, “Well, that doesn’t surprise me,” and immediately spun the conversation to looting that happened during the resurgence of the Black Lives

But if you live in the silo of the right-wing MAGAsphere like Caldwell, and believe Trump’s big lie of election fraud, the best answer is yet another lie—antifa did it. Russell Hodin

Matter movement last summer. Caldwell and Arpaio continued to collectively blame the media, Democratic Party lawmakers, antifa, California, and “the left” in general for the ills in America, grasping at literally anything rather than face the incredibly unprecedented escalation of rightwing domestic terrorism that struck at the very heart of our nation on Jan. 6. Equivocating an attack on the U.S. Capitol with protest, and even going as far as blaming it on confabulated left-wing agitators, illustrates a deeply disturbing strain of American conservatism that is all too comfortable reaching for the fascists’ playbook. I know many Republicans are mortified by what happened in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 and have accepted the obvious truth of the integrity of the election and agree with the calls for Trump to be removed from office. As someone on the progressive left, I won’t treat them as anything but fellow citizens and friends. But for those like Caldwell, who act as apologists for the anti-democracy and extremist strain on the right, I am comforted to see them so resoundingly defeated by the American people in the 2020 elections, after just one term of the man who is unequivocally the worst president in United States history. ∆ Joe Payne is a lifelong journalist and Santa Marian who shares news, analysis, and commentary online at politicalpayne. com.

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY QUINN BRADY

Path to unity B y the time this prints, Joe Biden will be our president, and we will welcome the first Black, SouthAsian, female vice president our nation has ever seen. A step forward my 6-yearold daughter holds with deep excitement and curiosity. The day Biden’s presidency was set for confirmation, I watched with my daughter as the House convened, and we anticipated a historic vote. Instead, I spent the next days, like so many parents, explaining “coup” and “insurrection” and taking an even deeper dive into explaining the depravity of white supremacy to a 6-year-old, who was innocently anticipating watching a strong woman like herself break a glass ceiling. On Jan. 6, America witnessed an act of white violence that culminates a dangerous and destructive four years rooted in racism, oppression, and fear in a post-truth era. The insurrection was shocking to many. But this white violence is not new; it existed long before the Trump presidency. It has existed in white bodies here at home and across the world that have defended their privilege, coveted their comfort, and coddled their exceptionalism. It exists in the GOP, which has orchestrated and perpetuated intolerance to its benefit, and in elected officials up and down the ballot who have added fuel to the fire through both rhetoric and silence. White violence existed since day one in the Trump presidency, as we watched him cultivate, affirm, and normalize bigotry aiming to maintain white supremacy on every level. This is not new. It is a devastating non-surprise. Last month I reflected on having fully seen ourselves in 2020 (“Beauty and the mess,” Dec. 24). One short month later, the remarkable truth of our America has become increasingly clear. We have seen ourselves in what insurrectionists so violently demonstrated on Jan. 6. We have seen ourselves in the way we strive to bury it, excuse it, unidentify ourselves with it. We have seen ourselves in the way white Americans have displayed shock to this violence, a mechanism to preserve their own comfort at the expense of bearing witness to the pain and harm done to people of color in America every day. “This isn’t America, we are better than this.” But indeed, this is us. This horrific and visceral truth, this is us. The truth of our division, our racism, our privilege, and our denial, and it must not be unseen. Ibram X. Kendi says, “Denial is the heartbeat of America. At every point in history, Americans refused to look at themselves for who they truly were. Americans have tried to take these ugly sides of America outside of the American project and say these people, or this incident, or this type of politics is not who we are, as opposed to saying, yes, this is precisely who we partially are, but we want to be better, we want to be different. Instead, Americans have denied it outright, denied its existence, and then we wonder why the cancer continues to spread.” Here we are, enmeshed in the truth of ourselves, seeking where to go next. For many, wanting to be better. But to be better we cannot close the curtain on what we have seen in ourselves. The resignation

of those who have complicitly stood in silence and in support does not relinquish them from responsibility. Though the American way is to deny any weakness, we cannot bypass the reckoning to move forward with the healing. A call for unity amid the thrashing of white supremacy is a call to silence those in pain and protect those in comfort. Unity cannot come at the expense of discrimination and persecution of the most vulnerable. And unity cannot come with those who actively justify the oppression of another, or sit silently by in witness. Unity cannot exist until we reckon with ourselves, acknowledge the harm, lean in to the pain and discomfort, bear the accountability, and bring to the forefront an intersectional justice that reaches every corner of our communities. When lawmakers and leaders and business owners and teachers and parents start prioritizing the ideas and policies that produce meaningful results for all people, and stop prioritizing privilege with such detailed attention, we just might unify around the change people have long called for. If we stop agonizing over white comfort and apologizing for white approval, we will be able to bring to fruition the types of practices and politics that actually move communities of color, and ultimately all of us, forward. We are not exempt here at home, quoting MLK while condemning protests for Black lives, justifying hatred in online echo chambers, accepting indifference while wrapped in comfort, and watching leaders who continue to serve the wealthy few without doing a damn thing about it. White violence is not happening outside of us, we are a part of it. It is easy to feel paralyzed by the enormity of the problem. But we are an active part of the solution if we rise to it. The only way to meet the immensity of this moment is to both practice, and require, a better way. The only way forward, as Representative Alexandria Ocosio-Cortez describes, is “a multi-racial democracy that fights for the economic rights of all people and the civil rights of all people.” Find your place in that fight, bring your 6-year-olds, and there we will find progress. ∆ Quinn Brady is a community advocate and organizer on the Central Coast.

The Shredder

Cluck, cluck

W

ith all of these COVID-19 pandemic shutdown orders and travel restrictions, tourist meccas like Pismo Beach must really be suffering economically. Not. “Due to travel restrictions throughout our state and nation, Pismo Beach saw record numbers of visitors traveling to our area and using our parks, beaches, and other public facilities,” a Pismo Beach staff report presented at the Jan. 19 City Council meeting said. Boy, that’s ironic. Even with the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area being closed to offroaders all summer long, Pismo broke tourist records. Well I guess State Parks can stuff it because those Central Valley peeps love it here whether they end up in the emergency room or not! Standing in a non-socially distanced line without masks to slurp up that Splash Café clam chowder gold. Going down the new cement slides from the pier to the beach and hurting themselves despite the warning signs at the top. Trashing the city because eating COVID-19 takeout is all there is to do here! Aren’t visitors swell? “The increased number of visitors brought with them an increase in the amount of trash generated,” the report stated. “When you combine the high number of visitors with the takeout situation, it is not surprising that our

trash volumes were higher than normal or anticipated.” Trash is one of those weird government functions that just happens without us noticing until now. The trash is piling up and the slow bureaucratic waste management machine is trying to adapt, but it’s just so hard! People don’t like to lift lids with their hands. Trash cans get full, and people just pile their discarded items on top, where the birds can pick through it and the wind can too, making an even bigger mess. City Public Works Director Ben Fine said the city has hired more maintenance positions devoted to picking up litter and emptying trash cans in the pier plaza area, but keeping things clean—which, let’s face it, has never been the case in that particular area—depends on better human behavior! And take it from a shredder. Humans are the worst! There’s a virus on the loose that’s actually killing people. Killing them. And we can’t get people to wear masks to prevent themselves and others from getting infected despite a concerted public health campaign. People will be assholes just because it’s inconvenient for them not to be. So street trash will always be a thing in Pismo. As will tourists, apparently. City

Manager Jim Lewis said that the city’s sales tax and transient occupancy tax receipts show that businesses actually saw increased revenue from June to October 2020, as compared to 2019! What pandemic, amirite?! So, Pismo’s hotels must not have followed the state’s occupancy restrictions. Things are so good in Pismo, that the city is the only one in SLO County that hasn’t offered any grants to struggling businesses. Grover Beach is tallying close to $750,000 in funds its given in business grants while Pismo is tallying a big fat zero. Jocelyn Brennan, president and CEO of the South County Chambers of Commerce, said that many of the city’s smaller businesses are struggling. So Pismo’s hotel business is booming while the rest of us are Zooming, trash is blooming, and the city’s small businesses are dooming. You know who isn’t Zooming? SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow. He declined to attend a public meeting with the Gala Pride and Diversity Center after he found out that a rather large crowd intended to tune in to hear his answers to questions about his views of LGBTQ-plus rights. Cluck, cluck, Danny Boy! You sound like a chicken. Wait, you guys! He did offer the nonprofit board an opportunity to meet in private! Which we all know is super lame. Double cluck, cluck. The public has a right to know what a top law enforcement official believes about how his extremely vocal religiosity impacts how he does his job when it comes to the LGBTQ-plus community. He already is

living on a cloud of denial when it comes to other parts of his job, such as conflicts of interest in prosecuting Black Lives Matter protesters and a vow to not force churches to abide by the COVID-19 rules the rest of us have to adhere to. Sheesh! Well, some of us think we have to adhere to those rules. And some of us— not so much. The city of SLO has levied $19,000 in fines to seven businesses it believes have violated COVID-19 regulations. Wowzers! SLO’s Administrative Review Board is hearing multiple appeals from Kennedy Club Fitness, which is challenging three $1,000 citations issued to the gym for allowing indoor exercise. Gym lawyer Jordan Cunningham— who also happens to be our state Assembly member and has been very vocal about his displeasure with what he sees as Gov. Gavin Newsom overstepping the bounds of emergency authority when it comes to issuing executive orders about the pandemic without consulting the Legislature—said there was “no evidence” to prove that indoor activity at the gym “imperils anybody’s life.” “That’s because there is no such evidence,” said Cunningham, who apparently isn’t afraid to Zoom at a public meeting about controversial issues. “It’s conjecture.” Well, he’s definitely not clucking. And the city doesn’t seem to be bucking. ∆ The Shredder is hungry for chicken nuggets. Send food to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

An instant party for your CD player! The Mother Corn Shuckers’ new CD goes big!

O

riginally, self-described “beergrass” band The Mother Corn Shuckers had planned to release their new album All In last summer, during what would have been the height of their touring season. Best laid plans, eh? Well, they held off for as long as they could and decided to finally pull the trigger. The album, their fourth, will be released on Friday, Jan. 22, and available on their Bandcamp page. You can also hear it on Spotify, see the band on their YouTube channel, and follow them on Facebook and Instagram @themothercornshuckers. According to frontman and songwriterin-chief Che Miller, they’re “songs about love, loss, friends, fun, heartache, and murder.” The 12-song album kicks off with “Silver Spoon,” which has the jangle of an early John Cougar song before he readopted his given name Mellencamp—a super catchy ditty about the perils of getting everything handed to you and learning to value nothing. “Calling it Home” is a propulsive, galloping road song with a twist, about pulling a 35-foot trailer: “Shifting into low gear, hope I get out of here/ Ruts in the road, pulling a heavy load/ Going slow steady is the only way to go/ Getting off the mountain and getting back home.” “Tip of the Hat” is groover about hard partying through the night: “Sound so loud, lights so bright, everything is in sight/ One with you, one with me, everything is reality/ Sun will rise another day, wash the whole night away/ What you take with you, you see, is your new reality.” The title track “All In” is an old-school country rocker love song: “Won’t you be the queen in my straight flush/ Won’t you

be the one who calls my bluff/ Won’t you be the one who’s my good luck/ Won’t you be the one to steal my love.” Miller’s got a forceful voice and is backed by a small army of great players. In the past, they recorded their albums essentially “live”—throw everyone in a room and go for it. This is the first time they layered in multi tracks, and the sound is terrific! Recorded by Jon Bartel at his Northwall Studio in A-Town and mastered by Kirk MacLane at Portola Studios, you can distinctly hear all the instruments, vocals, and backing vocals. “Fire Still Burns” starts as a forlorn lament before morphing into a bootscooting boogie road song: “Late night highway trying to make it home/ Straight black coffee and the radio’s on/ 600 miles to go on this lonely late night road/ 4 a.m. and the fire still burns.” The instrumental traditional “Lonesome Reel” is a real bluegrass barn burner that shows off the band’s amazing picking and fiddling. “Tradition” was cowritten with Miss Leo Mathews, who sings in duet with Miller, and it’s a lovely and rustic love song: “High on the mountains we have crossed/ You take the lead when I get lost/ Take my hand and carry my load/ I’ll take yours and welcome you home// If you my dear would give your permission/ I’d like to be your one tradition.” “Fork in the Road” is another groovy dance track that you can’t help but bob your head to. You’ll wish you were holding a tambourine. “I liked the way that she moved/ She liked the way that I grooved/ Her lips tender and sweet/ Kind of girl I’d like to meet.” “I thought you might especially like the track ‘Cold Blood’ considering I wrote it about the San Miguel massacre,” Miller

The posse gave them hell/ Some were shot and drown/ Trying to swim away with the gold/ Some were tried and put to bullet/ In Santa Barbara old.” “W. T. Sunday” stands for “White Trash Sunday,” and it’s got a real outlaw country feel: “Sunday morning and I feel like shit/ Gonna drink another beer gonna take another hit/ Head’s still hurting and my body still aches/ Wish I had a shot of shine.” GET SHUCKED! The Mother Corn Shuckers release their “Good Friend” is fourth album, All In, on Jan. 22, and it’s a real barn burner! about the feel-good nature of live music and CD COVER PAINTING BY COLLEEN GNOS the camaraderie it brings: “Well your name’s on the tip of my tongue/ I think we might have had a whole lot of fun/ I’m sure you were drinking a few/ Or maybe that wasn’t you// People come and people go/ Some you know and some you don’t/ People come and people go/ I think you, gonna make a good friend.” The album ends with the rumbling “Evidence,” a crime story: “Shotgun shells/ finger prints/ Stolen money and a fender dent/ Bodies laid out all over the floor/ I think it’s time to make a run for the door.” The harmonica that sounds like a wailing siren is nice touch! This is straight-up partying music. You’ll be tearing up your living room carpet and dreaming of the next time you WILD CARDS!

Chuck Graham chronicles the Carrizo Plain National Monument for its 20th anniversary

M

ost local residents have heard of the Carrizo Plain National Monument, an expansive grassland in the southeastern part of SLO County, but not many have visited except to witness a super bloom, a springtime event that happens every few years when conditions are just right. Others might have made the trek to see Painted Rock and its 4,000-year-old Native American pictographs. It’s pretty desolate, and most of the time it looks like an endless field of brown grass. For Chuck Graham, however, Carrizo Plain is so much more. He’s spent 15 years visiting the National Monument and recently released Carrizo Plain: Where Mountains Meet the Grasslands, a book filled with photographs and essays about this special place. “When I tell people about the Carrizo Plain National Monument, they sometimes take my recommendation and make the drive out there only to return a little frustrated, perhaps disappointed. I often hear: ‘I don’t see what the big deal is.’ But for me, as soon as I turn onto Soda Lake Road, time comes to a screeching halt and simply stands still. It’s like stepping into early California—these are the Golden State’s last historic grasslands, an open wilderness that isn’t far, yet feels worlds away. And I love it,” he wrote. Carrizo Plain stretches about 50 miles long and as much as 15 miles wide and is the largest single native grassland remaining in California. Called tšɨłkukunɨtš by the native Chumash, it translates as “place of the rabbits.” Painted Rock in the Carrizo Plain Rock Art Discontiguous District contains examples of Chumash and Yokut rock art created around 2000 B.C.E. The area also offers spectacular views of the San Andreas Fault. During an email interview, Graham, who also guides kayak trips around the Channel Islands, admitted, “I enjoy the drab. I enjoy the stark landscapes, the shadows creeping across the plain. It’s still very beautiful.” He discovered Carrizo about five years after President Bill Clinton declared it a National Monument in 2001: “I saw some photos of it in a magazine. They were just beautiful, and I knew immediately I needed to be there.” He spent the next decade and a half returning, again and again, to hike and explore, camp and relax, and immerse himself in nature. “I keep going back for the solitude, the wide open space, the colors, the wildlife,” he said. “You never know what you might see.” Indeed, his book contains gorgeous photos of migrating long-billed curlews, black-tailed jackrabbits and their comically long ears, adorable kit foxes, loggerhead shrikes, tule elk, pronghorn antelope, and many more, but he writes in his book: “Not all Carrizo’s species are represented

THE LAST EXPANSE Though Graham’s book is packed with stunning photos of super blooms and the area’s endangered species, it also depicts the quiet beauty and isolation of California’s largest single native grassland remaining in the state, comprising more than 200,000 acres.

HAVE CAMERA, WILL TRAVEL Carpinteria resident Chuck Graham, a freelance photographer and writer, recently released his collection of photos and essays on the Carrizo Plain National Monument, which celebrates its 20th anniversary as protected space this month.

here. My intention was to include as many wild inhabitants as I could, but nature has its own way of doing things. I always go with the flow and capture whatever unfolds before me. The Carrizo works well like that. Seeing its aural wonders only requires a few things: keeping my head up, my binoculars and camera at the ready, and staying grateful to get dirty.” This is both a picture book and a guidebook, with important information about the area’s features, camping possibilities, and amenities (or lack thereof!). What was his goal for the book when he started the project? “When I started the book, I was just thinking photo book, but my book designer, Terri Wright, saw more than that,” he said. “She suggested breaking it up into three sections, writing some essays to break up the photography.” The three sections are “Flora and Fauna,” chronicling the area’s wildlife; “The Sweeping Plain,” featuring stirring views of the landscape; and “Reflections,” with eye-popping photos of the area’s mesmerizing color and light show. Graham visits Carrizo during all seasons and all times of year. How does it feel to a regular like him when a super bloom draws

crowds? Does he think tourists are respectful? “Even during a super bloom, you can still get away from the crowd,” he noted. “Unfortunately, there are those that still can’t find the trashcan or trample through the flowers, but I think generally people are respectful.” Looking through Graham’s camera lens, you see the area as he does—a beautiful cathedral to nature’s glory. The book will make you long to visit the place as Graham does, just himself, his backpack and tent, and his camera, binoculars, and notebook. What he remembers most are his encounters with Carrizo’s permanent residents. “Really, it’s the moments with wildlife, the curious kit foxes or bugling tule elk. Those are the experiences I want out there,” he said. One feature of the area is glaringly missing. Aside from a couple of long shots of the sandstone rock formations of Painted Rock, there are no photos of the pictographs within. “In regards to rock art and Native Americans, it’s a respect thing,” Graham explained. “They have some of the most elaborate rock art in North America. I’m hoping it stays that way.” Graham is a freelance writer and photographer whose work has appeared in Backpacker, Men’s Journal, National Geographic for Kids, BBC Wildlife magazine, The Surfer’s Journal, the L.A. Times, Outdoor California, American Forests, and Natural History. Locally, you can pick up a copy at Coalesce Bookstore in Morro Bay and Volumes of Pleasure in Los Osos. It’s as special as the place it depicts. ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Area wineries are packaging tasting kits so customers can enjoy a tasting room experience during lockdown

L

ittle vials of wine nestled carefully into a box are waiting for you to take them home. Available at some local wineries, the bottles come in packs of five or six, hold 1 to 4 ounces of wine each, and are the latest iteration of pandemic life. After the first COVID-19 shutdown in March, wineries battened down their tasting rooms, upped their social media and internet sales games, and waited for reopening. When in-person winery visits were finally allowed again, most knew it was only a matter of time before the inevitable happened again. “We were trying to think of everything that was going to come our way,” Epoch Estate Wines Assistant Tasting Room Manager Braden Bautista said. “We’d always had it in the back of our mind that something else could come along—a new wave, a new shutdown.” So wineries like Epoch dreamed up ways to stay in touch with customers. Bautista said they were just trying to keep ideas in their back pocket. “Just in case,” he said. “And, of course, it did happen.” In November, the state of California shut the state down by region—including the Southern California region, which SLO County is a part of—as COVID-19 surged following the holidays. Local wineries were forced to endure another shutdown, again closing down tasting rooms to the public with no forecasted end in sight. So the industry is once again adapting. Epoch and a few handfuls of other Paso Robles area wineries are offering consumers kits for a pandemic wine tasting. Each one is a little different (with different price points), but they follow the same basic outline. A flight of wines that would normally be offered in the tasting room gets bottled on

Pismo Beach General Plan/Local Coastal Plan (GP/LCP) Update

Project Location: The project focuses on the land area of the City of Pismo Beach, which is located on the Central Coast of California, midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Pismo Beach lies within the San Luis Bay Planning Area of the San Luis Obispo County General Plan. Pismo Beach has a total area of 13.5 square miles, the majority of which is located in the Coastal Zone. 9.9 square miles of the City is water and the remaining 3.6 square miles is land area. Pismo Beach is one of seven incorporated cities within San Luis Obispo County. Pismo Beach is bordered by the beach and ocean on the southwest and hills to the northeast. The Cities of Grover Beach and Arroyo Grande are south and east of Pismo Beach and the unincorporated community of Avila Beach is just north of Pismo Beach. Brief Project Description: The project is an update to the City of Pismo Beach GP/LCP, which includes updates to the Land Use, Safety, Conservation and Open Space, Noise, Facilities, and Parks, Recreation, and Access Elements of the City’s GP/LCP. The GP/LCP Update does not include updates to the Circulation, Design, Growth Management, Housing Elements. The GP/ LCP Update is an update of the City’s 1992 GP/LCP and presents the community’s vision for Pismo Beach through the GP/LCP horizon (year 2040). The GP/LCP Update was developed through an extensive public outreach and involvement process, including careful analysis by advisory committees, City staff, elected officials, and the community. Each element of the plan addresses different aspects of the community and identifies measurable actions to guide residents, decision-makers, businesses, and City staff toward achieving the community vision. Goals established in the GP/LCP Update are intended to maintain the City’s small beach town character, manage growth effectively, provide a safe community, and enhance the City’s tourist-based economy. The GP/ LCP Update establishes overarching City policies and priorities that describe how the community intends to use and manage its physical, social, and economic resources. The GP/LCP Land Use Element guides the future development of Pismo Beach by establishing the allowable distribution, location, and extent of development across the city for residential, commercial, open space, public and semi-public facilities, and other uses. The LCP consists of two parts as required by the Coastal Act: a Land Use Plan, which was last updated in 1993, and the Implementation Plan, which was last updated in 1983, with several amendments to both documents occurring since. The Implementation Plan provides the zoning regulations that implement the LUP goals, policies and actions and serves as the City’s Coastal Zoning Ordinance. Potential environmental effects include, but are not necessarily limited to, impacts related to air quality, biological resources, cultural and tribal cultural resources, energy, greenhouse gas emissions, hazards and hazardous materials, hydrology/water quality, land use, noise, and transportation.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Where in your life do you push too hard? Where don’t you push hard enough? Testify: freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): On May 4, 2019, my Aries friend Leah woke up in a state of amazement. During the night, she felt she had miraculously become completely enlightened. Over the next 16 hours, she understood her life perfectly. Everything made sense to her. She was in love with every person and animal she knew. But by the next morning, the exalted serenity had faded, and she realized that her enlightenment had been temporary. She wasn’t mad or sad, however. The experience shook her up so delightfully that she vowed to forevermore seek to recreate the condition she had enjoyed. Recently she told me that on virtually every day since May 4, 2019, she has spent at least a few minutes, and sometimes much longer, exulting in the same ecstatic peace that visited her back then. That’s the Aries way: turning a surprise, spontaneous blessing into a permanent breakthrough. I trust you will do that soon.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’re entering the potentially most playful and frisky and whimsical phase of your astrological cycle. To honor and encourage a full invocation of gleeful fun, I offer you the following thoughts from Tumblr blogger Sparkledog. “I am so tired of being told that I am too old for the things I like. No cartoons. No toys. No fantasy animals. No bright colors. Are adults supposed to live monotonous, bleak lives? I can be an adult and still love childish things. I can be intelligent and educated and informed and I can love stuffed animals and unicorns. Please stop making me feel bad for loving the things that make me happy.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): One morning, famous French Army Gen.l Hubert Lyautey (1854-1934) instructed his gardener to spend the next day planting a row of saplings on his property. The gardener agreed, but advised Lyautey that this particular species of tree required 100 years to fully mature. “In that case,” Lyautey said, “plant them now.” I recommend that you, too, expedite your long-term plans, Taurus. Astrologically speaking, the time is ripe for you to take crisp action to fulfill your big dreams.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone asked poet E. E. Cummings what home was for him. He responded poetically, talking about his lover. Home was “the stars on the tip of your tongue, the flowers sprouting from your mouth, the roots entwined in the gaps between your fingers, the ocean echoing inside your ribcage.” What about you, Gemini? If you were asked to give a description of what makes you feel glad to be alive and helps give you the strength to be yourself, what would you say? Now would be a good time to identify and honor the influences that inspire you to create your inner sense of home.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Be sweet to me, world,” pleads Cancerian poet Stephen Dunn in one of his poems. In the coming weeks, I invite you to address the world in a similar way. And since I expect the world will be unusually receptive and responsive to your requests, I’ll encourage you to add even more entreaties. For example, you could say, “Be revelatory and educational with me, world,” or, “Help me deepen my sense that life is meaningful, world,” or, “Feed my soul with experiences that will make me smarter and wilder and kinder, world.” Can you think of other appeals and supplications you’d like to express to the world?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Throughout his many rough travels in the deserts of the Middle East, the Leo diplomat and army officer known as Lawrence of Arabia (1888-1935) didn’t give up his love of reading. While riding on the backs of camels, he managed to study numerous tomes, including the works of ancient Greek writers Aeschylus and Aristophanes. I’d love to see you perform comparable balancing acts in the coming weeks, Leo. The astrological omens suggest you’ll be skilled at coordinating seemingly uncoordinatable projects and tasks—and that you’ll thrive by doing so. (PS: Your efforts may be more metaphorical and less literal than Lawrence’s.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Sculptor Stefan Saal testifies that one of his central questions as a creator of art is to know when a piece is done. “When making a thing I need to decide when is it thoroughly made, when is it dare-we-say ‘perfected.’” He has tried to become a master of knowing where and when to stop. I recommend this practice to you in the next two weeks, Virgo. You’ve been doing good work, and will continue to do good work, but it’s crucial that you don’t get overly fussy and fastidious as you refine and perhaps even finish your project.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Nature cannot be ordered about, except by obeying her,” wrote philosopher Francis Bacon (15611626). That paradoxical observation could prove to be highly useful for you in the coming weeks. Here are some other variants on the theme: Surrendering will lead to power. Expressing vulnerability will generate strength. A willingness to transform yourself will transform the world around you. The more you’re willing to acknowledge that you have a lot to learn, the smarter you’ll be.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In his book The Lover’s Dictionary, David Levithan advises lovers and would-be lovers to tell each other their very best stories. “Not the day’s petty injustices,” he writes. “Not the glimmer of a seven-eighths-forgotten moment from your past. Not something that somebody said to somebody, who then told it to you.” No, to foster the vibrant health of a love relationship—or any close alliance for that matter—you should consistently exchange your deepest, richest tales. This is always true, of course, but it’s especially true for you right now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): On Oct. 18, 1867, the United States government completed its purchase of Alaska from Russia. How much did this 586,000-acre kingdom cost? Two cents per acre, which in today’s money would be about 37 cents. It was a tremendous bargain! I propose that we regard this transaction as a metaphor for what’s possible for you in 2021: the addition of a valuable resource at a reasonable price. (PS: American public opinion about the Alaskan purchase was mostly favorable back then, but a few influential newspapers described it as foolish. Don’t let naysayers like them dissuade you from your smart action.)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “My business is circumference,” wrote poet Emily Dickinson in a letter to her mentor. What did she mean by that? “Circumference” was an important word for her. It appeared in 17 of her poems. Critic Rochelle Cecil writes that for Dickinson, circumference referred to a sense of boundlessness radiating out from a center—a place where “one feels completely free, where one can express anything and everything.” According to critic Donna M. Campbell, circumference was Dickinson’s metaphor for ecstasy. When she said, “My business is circumference,” she meant that her calling was to be eternally in quest of awe and sublimity. I propose that you make good use of Dickinson’s circumference in the coming weeks, Aquarius. It’s time to get your mind and heart and soul thoroughly expanded and elevated.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Should I quote the wisdom of people who have engaged in behavior I consider unethical or immoral? Should I draw inspiration from teachers who at some times in their lives treated others badly? For instance, Pisces-born Ted Geisel, better known as beloved author Dr. Seuss, cheated on his wife while she was sick, ultimately leading to her suicide. Should I therefore banish him from my memory and never mention the good he did in the world? Or should I forgive him of his sins and continue to appreciate him? I don’t have a fixed set of rules about how to decide questions like these. How about you? The coming weeks will be a good time to redefine your relationship with complicated people. ∆
