Restaurants deal with stay-at-home order restrictions

R

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE CITY OF PASO ROBLES

estaurants throughout SLO County took to social media to rejoice after California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Jan. 25 he would be lifting the regional stay-at-home order that went into effect in early December 2020. On Jan. 26, Rooster Creek Tavern in Arroyo Grande posted on Instagram, “No more plastic cups! Tomorrow we are back to full outdoor service. Glassware, plates, and silverware included with your dining experience!” Prior to the announcement, several local restaurants were in the hot seat with the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) for violating state health orders. No citations had been issued as of Jan. 26, however ABC Public Information Officer John Carr said the department had three pending cases in SLO County involving violations of health orders. “We are not naming the locations at this time since the cases are pending. ABC had approximately 50 open investigations last week,” Carr said on Jan. 26. “We constantly review cases and do have agents out in the field to follow up.” Similar to local government municipalities and law enforcement agencies, which took an educational approach with noncompliant businesses and only cited egregious violators, Carr said ABC prefers voluntary compliance with health orders. However, he said the department would take enforcement action at businesses that refuse to comply. In SLO County, he said, ABC officials witnessed indoor dining, outdoor dining, or both at the 50-plus businesses that were under investigation. In recent weeks, Pappy McGregor’s in Paso Robles posted on Facebook about a warning about in-person dining it got from ABC. New Times reached out to Pappy’s for further comment but hadn’t heard back before press time. In the post, Pappy McGregor’s said it has tried as long as possible to operate in a socially distant and safe manner “while still giving our guests the experience they expect at Pappy McGregor’s, without jeopardizing our licenses.” Statewide, ABC licenses somewhere from 45,000 to 50,000 restaurants and bars and has made more than 163,065 compliancecheck visits. ABC has issued more than 200

misdemeanor citations statewide, Carr said. ABC is sensitive to the challenges facing businesses during the pandemic, Carr said, which is why the department quickly adapted some of its rules, such as allowing sales of alcoholic beverages to-go.

SLO County hopes private health care can ramp up COVID-19 vaccination campaign

age 75 and older each week at its clinics. But as the vaccine rollout at the county gains momentum, some officials have asked what role local hospitals and private health care offices are playing in the campaign. Statewide, hospitals are receiving their own vaccine doses—at varying levels—from both local public health departments and the state Department of Public Health. The landscape is ever-changing; numbers are hard to pin down; and the communication between the providers, the counties, and the state isn’t perfect, according 2nd District SLO County Supervisor Bruce Gibson. “The problem is that we just don’t know what kind of vaccine they have and how much they’ve

Since COVID-19 vaccines arrived in December, the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department has mobilized to open three local vaccine clinics, while developing a new website and online appointment system to get residents signed up for vaccinations. At press time, SLO County had received 22,660 total doses of vaccine from the state and administered 10,539 first doses and 2,300 second doses. Public health is currently vaccinating between 4,000 to 5,000 residents

administered,” Gibson told New Times. Local health officials have worked in recent days to get up-to-date information from local providers—to some success. “We have reached out to all providers as to how many doses they have actually administered and have gratefully received up-to-date responses from most,” SLO County Public Health Spokesperson Michelle Shoresman said. “From the hospitals and pharmacies to whom we allocated doses, we believe they are being administered at a high rate.” According to Sara San Juan, a spokesperson NEWS continued page 6

for Dignity Health Central Coast, the amount of vaccinations underway depends on the hospital. At Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria, more than 4,000 local residents older than 75 have received a vaccination. But at French Hospital in SLO, the number is smaller. “Marian has received larger allotments than French, so are able to vaccinate larger amounts of the public,” San Juan said. “The situation is very fluid, and when we receive shipments, it is our intention to vaccinate our community efficiently and expeditiously.” Tenet Health Central Coast, which owns Sierra Vista hospital in SLO and Twin Cities hospital in Templeton, is not offering vaccinations to the general public yet, according to a monthly public update from CEO Mark Lisa. In a statement to New Times, Tenet Health Central Coast said it “continues to work with the county of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department to leverage our expertise and resources with the goal of helping get vaccinations to the public as soon as they become available.” County officials said they expect the private providers to play an increased and significant role in the vaccination campaign in the near future. “We do not have a start date, but hope that local private health care providers can start vaccinating more people in SLO County soon,” Shoresman said. —Peter Johnson

Stadium 805 backs out of permit allowing concerts in 2021

There likely won’t be any concerts at the Santa Maria Raceway this year. At a meeting on Jan. 26, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors rescinded a temporary commercial outdoor entertainment license it awarded to the Santa Maria Raceway, aka Stadium 805, just a few months earlier. The permit would have allowed the venue to host six one-day concerts with up to 3,500 attendees in 2021, and it was largely considered a win for Stadium 805 in its battle over noise and traffic with the residents of a neighboring housing development. But Stadium 805 owner Nick Duggan said coronavirus-related lockdowns and operational restrictions have made it nearly impossible to plan for such events. “So trying to book any concerts or artists,” he told New Times, “everybody is not committing to anything right now.” Duggan said the shutdowns have been hard on both his businesses, Stadium 805 and Mustang Waterpark, neither of which brought in any real revenue in 2020. He hasn’t been able to host events with crowds since mid-March of last year, and just days after the county granted Stadium 805’s outdoor entertainment license on Nov. 10, 2020, SLO County slid back into the purple and most restrictive tier. That was followed closely by a regional stay-at-home order. So instead of wasting the entertainment permit on a year already brimming with uncertainty, Duggan is backing out. If COVID-19 allows it, Stadium 805 will host events covered by its current operational permits and try again for concerts in 2022. But Stadium 805 is up against more than just the pandemic. The venue has

been at the center of a debate over excessive noise and traffic for more than a year now. Although the facility has been hosting stock car races for more than 40 years, Duggan purchased it in 2018 with hopes of continuing races and supplementing the track’s income with other events, like concerts, beer and wine festivals, and fundraisers. “To keep racing UNDONE The SLO County Board of Supervisors recently rescinded viable,” he said, a temporary commercial outdoor entertainment license that would “we have to have have allowed the Santa Maria Raceway, aka Stadium 805, to host six one-day concerts with up to 3,500 attendees in 2021. other events.” But the resulting With the vote, SLO County entered into traffic congestion, a memorandum of understanding with noise, and trash led to complaints from the developer, NKT Commercial’s Nick residents of a neighboring housing Tompkins, that sets the parameters for development, Costa Pacifica Estates. the project’s review, and also amended the Costa Pacifica residents say it’s not county general plan in South County to the races that are the problem, but the better align it with the project. other events like concerts, which they “The South County Area Plan is say are excessively noisy, run late into between 20 and 25 years out of date,” SLO the night even on weekdays, and create County Planning Department Division traffic congestion and safety issues at Manager Airlin Singewald explained to intersections on Vista Del Rio, the only county supervisors. “The project reflects road leading into the Costa Pacifica current needs, current conditions, and development.

Debate over Harbor Patrol use of force policies gets heated

Two Port San Luis Harbor District commissioners want to rethink the duties and powers afforded to Harbor Patrol officers, but without much support from the remaining commissioners or staff, the issue is becoming increasingly contentious. The policies and regulations Harbor Patrol officers adhere to are updated

constantly as federal, state, and local laws change, and the most recent changes in state law came on the heels of nationwide protests over police brutality in the spring of 2020. That’s around the time Harbor Commissioner Bob Vessely became aware of police reform campaigns like 8 Can’t Wait, which pushes for bans on chokeholds and strangleholds and calls for improved de-escalation strategies. After doing some research, Vessely started to think that Harbor Patrol officers should look and act more like park rangers than police officers. “But the policies they want us to adopt, the training they do, the uniforms they wear, the equipment they use all screams cop,” Vessely said. “And I don’t have a problem with that. It’s just not what we want here at the port. We want park rangers.” Part of the issue, according to Vessely, is the Harbor Patrol’s use of Lexipol policies. Lexipol is an organization that develops comprehensive and continuously updated, prewritten policies that law enforcement and other public safety agencies throughout the nation can purchase, download, and adopt. The organization was founded in 2003 by two attorneys and former law enforcement officers, one of whom has a long history representing public safety organizations in court, and critics say the policies are written to protect law enforcement from liability, not to protect and serve community members. The Harbor Patrol received a grant in 2017 that enabled it to purchase and implement Lexipol policies, and Vessely said the one-size-fits-all guidelines don’t align with the mission of the Harbor Patrol. “My intention is to find a way to back them off of the Lexipol requirements,” Vessely said, “and get to something more like banning chokeholds and things along the lines of the 8 Can’t Wait.” At a commission meeting on Jan. 26, Harbor District staff presented changes to four Harbor Patrol policies that would bring them in line with recently passed laws, including those regarding vehicle pursuits, custody of juveniles, a ban on chokeholds, and the addition of volunteer chaplains to provide emotional support services to community members and Harbor Patrol officers. While staff recommended that the Harbor Patrol manual be updated to restrict chokeholds, Vessely noted that the wording did not include a specific restriction on carotid restraints as required by state law. Staff recommended that officers in vehicle pursuits call dispatchers immediately, but Vessely said he’d rather not see Harbor Patrol officers in vehicle pursuits at all. When staff recommended a change to the definition of “juvenile” to include anyone 17 and under rather than 15 and under, Vessely questioned whether Harbor Patrol officers should really be apprehending minors. Though Commissioner Mary Matakovich sided with Vessely throughout much of the discussion, most of the policy changes passed as written by staff. Staff plan to return to the commission for another, more in-depth discussion on the Harbor Patrol and its responsibilities next month. “That’s the discussion I hope to have,” Vessely said. “But I’m not optimistic.” ∆ —Kasey Bubnash

The quarantine 15

PHOTO COURTESY OF STEPHANIE KILLEN

Learn some practical tips from a pro about living a healthier pandemic lifestyle BY KASEY BUBNASH

P

andemic pounds, the quarantine 15, the COVID 19. You know what I’m talking about. The COVID-19 pandemic completely disrupted most of our lives and routines; led to spikes in stress, anxiety, and uncertainty; and left many of us with little else to do but sit around. With gyms closed and millions of jobs lost, it’s only natural that many of us dropped our healthy habits and traded them in for comfort food. An October 2020 survey conducted by researchers at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Louisiana found that sedentary time increased among nearly 8,000 respondents during the pandemic, while time spent in physical activity decreased. The result, in about 28 percent of cases, was weight gain. Weight fluctuation is normal, natural, and human. Gaining weight isn’t always a bad thing, and fat certainly isn’t always a sign of an unhealthy lifestyle. But for those of you who feel like your COVID-19 weight gain is the result of some bad habits, Stephanie Killen, a certified nutritional therapy practitioner at Sound Body Nutrition in San Luis Obispo, can help. Killen works with her clients to address digestive, hormonal, and weight issues through holistic nutrition and lifestyle remedies.

New Times: Have you heard from a lot of clients who have gained weight during the pandemic? Killen: I actually have not. I’ve heard it throughout just people in general, you know, as I mingle about. “Oh, you know, I’ve put on weight because I’m just eating at home,” and that kind of thing. So it’s definitely circulating and I have heard it. But my clients in particular, the ones that come to me for weight loss, it’s been an issue since before the pandemic. So I’m not sure if it’s actually made it worse for them or not. NT: So we had the pandemic on top of the holiday season. I personally always gain weight during the holiday season because there’re so many cookies. And then now with the new year I’m seeing lots of posts

on social media about resolutions to lose weight and fad diets. So what do you think of fad diets like keto and stuff like that? Do they work? Killen: Even the word “diet” is something that we try to stay away from when I work with my clients because it’s more of a lifestyle change than a diet—because diets fail. And it’s a mindset around the word “diet” that kind of is restrictive and freaks people out, and a lot of people aren’t successful with it. I mean, there are certain health issues that could benefit from certain specialty diets, like keto, like paleo, like Whole30. Those are definitely warranted in some situations. Then there’re also detoxes—you’ll see that in the beginning of the year, and I think it could be a good kick-start into the year if it’s truly a goal of yours to kind of clean out and lose weight and start again. I do think that those programs can be helpful in kick-starting that, but in all reality, most people don’t even make it through and go back to what they’re doing, either during or right after any of those programs. NT: What do you think it is about diets in general that leads people to not be successful? Killen: I think a lot of it is meal planning, whether it’s too time consuming, whether they don’t know what to eat, whether they don’t know what to eat that tastes good is a big one. A lot of people dislike cooking, or they just want something quick and easy and convenient. And when it comes to actually cooking meals, they don’t know what to cook and how to make it tasty and how to make it quick. So I think that that’s probably the biggest hiccup for diets. And then another thing is the mentality that, “Oh, well I screwed up. So I’ll just start again, like, next Monday.” So it’s like they screw up once and then it’s out the door until they feel like this is a good starting point again, instead of just realizing that progress over perfection. Then you have words like “cheat” and “cheat days” and “I cheated.” And I think there’s just this really restrictive, almost negative connotation with dieting. And I think that gets old for people, real quick.

NT: As a nutritionist, what kinds of tips do you give to people typically who want to lose weight in a healthy, longterm sort of way?

After COVID-19

BY KAREN GARCIA

H

ospice SLO County Executive Director Shannon McOuat has always dealt with allergies, so when she noticed her throat starting to feel scratchy, she didn’t think much of it. On Friday, Dec. 11, McOuat and another individual—McOuat declined to name that person for privacy reasons— were in the same room together in a building at a safe distance with masks on. Two days later, McOuat got an email from the individual notifying her of their positive COVID-19 test result. That’s when McOuat’s scratchy throat “became scary.” Thankful for the individual’s email, McOuat said she promptly made an appointment to get tested the following Wednesday and decided to self-isolate after taking the test. “After I got my test, I walked into my bedroom, shut the door, opened the window, and that was it,” she said. “I was sort of in my mind working on the assumption that I didn’t have it because when I got tested, the medical staff said my exposure was so minimal and unlikely. They were actually hesitant to even test me at all.” Three days later on Dec. 19, McOuat got her results back: She was positive. She describes her symptoms as going from feeling like she was fighting off a cold to not being able to get out of bed. Neither her husband—he tested negative for the virus—nor her three sons got COVID-19, and McOuat stayed in her room, which had a bathroom attached to it. She’s still recovering—at the time of the interview, she had started to regain her sense of smell and taste, she described her brain as slow to fire up each day, and her sleep was often interrupted. Aside from physical symptoms, McOuat says her mental health has been significantly impacted through this experience. Medical organizations and hospitals such as the Kaiser Family Foundation, the World Health Organization, and Cedars-Sinai have released preliminary reports on COVID-19’s physical impacts. However, researchers have yet to dive into the mental health aspects of contracting and recovering from the virus.

leaving McOuat to her thoughts once again. The nights were the most challenging, she said, because everyone in her home was asleep. She wouldn’t get to hear her sons’ voices, and no one would be able to check on her. “As a full-time mom of three boys, I have joked about wanting a week alone in my bedroom or just a week alone,” she said. “I will never make that joke again. I missed them fiercely.” She experienced RECOVERING Hospice SLO County’s newest executive fear, the fear of director, Shannon McOuat, speaks out about her mental exposing someone else health experience while recovering from COVID-19. unknowingly or her household members.

The coronavirus takes a toll on the mental well-being of those who contract it

COVID-19 back into my house,” she said. Ueberrhein suggests individuals who recover from the virus slowly ease back into interacting with the world safely. This can be a situation where social anxiety or agoraphobia—the fear of a crowded place, leaving one’s home, or being in a place where escape is difficult—could manifest for the first time or reemerge for an individual who already had these tendencies. “Even though you want to maintain 6 feet and follow all the precautions, please go out into the world and be around people in a safe way,” Ueberrhein said. If a person puts off reentering society, that person is more likely to have worsening symptoms of social anxiety, regular anxiety, and depression. Simple ways of reintegration could be taking a walk outside to get the mail, taking a walk around the block, and staying connected to friends and family through technology—Zoom calls, FaceTime, Google Duo, etc. “But you don’t want to go too long without being around humans at all,” Ueberrhein said. “I do encourage, even if you’re having a little bit of anxiety about it, to start slow but challenge yourself in small ways.” Just as easily as people can connect via smart devices and social media, she said, take the time to disconnect and get outside. McOuat has been catching up on her work duties, spending time with her family, and reflecting on the “mental and emotional” toll the virus took on her. She says she was lucky to have the space to recover and protect her family. But she hopes that sharing her experience will get the community talking about the mental health issues that can come with contracting COVID-19. McOuat acknowledges everyone’s current feelings about the virus and its impacts and understands the fatigue of it all. “But we have got to bunker down and take care of one another—and by taking care of one another, it’s wearing a mask, it’s doing all those things that we know we’re supposed to do,” she said. “This is real, it’s in our community, and I hope people will take this seriously for just a little bit longer.” ∆ Staff writer Karen Garcia is checking in on the well-being of her friends and family at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

Fitness groups move their classes to city parks to keep businesses, communities healthy during pandemic

BY PETER JOHNSON

ike most gym owners at the start of COVID-19, Dave and Brittany Pomfret of Equilibrium Fitness for Women in San Luis Obispo closed up their brick-and-mortar studio in March and—by necessity—got into the business of digital workouts. They offered their classes live on Zoom. They made on-demand videos. They rented out their equipment to members so they could continue working out at home. For a few months, this model worked pretty well. But by June, Dave Pomfret saw “Zoom fatigue” set in. He noticed his class attendance bottoming out. Classes that used to have 80 attendees in April drew only 20 on a good day in June. “People were just tired of being in front of their screens,” Pomfret told New Times. “It really dropped off.” Fortunately, as the pandemic wore on, local fitness instructors and their stircrazy customers were thrown a lifeline. In June, the city of SLO launched Fitness in the Park—a part of its Open SLO initiative that used city resources to help businesses safely reopen. For a one-time fee of $20 and some simple paperwork, health and fitness leaders—gym owners, yoga instructors, personal trainers, and the like—could move their classes into city parks. “Normally, we’d charge an hourly rental fee or permit fee—and we waived that,” SLO Parks and Recreation Director Greg

GRATITUDE Each Sunday, SLO Yoga Center hosts an outdoor yoga class in the park. Its Thanksgiving weekend class (pictured) drew a big turnout in Emerson Park.

Avakian told New Times. “Our goal was, if you have a business license and you did a wellness- or fitness-based activity, we’ll support you. … From day one of the COVID emergency, [SLO County Public Health Officer] Dr. Borenstein has always emphasized, ‘Get outside, stay healthy.’” Over the next six months, more than a dozen fitness groups would take the city up on the offer—bringing Zumba to Islay Park, yoga to Emerson Park, and strength training to Meadow Park. Pomfret said Equilibrium Fitness jumped on the opportunity “right at the beginning.” Five days per week, it offers body flow classes, dance fitness classes,

and more out in spacious Meadow Park. Attendance was strong immediately, Pomfret said, as members reveled in the chance to get out of their homes, exercise, and socialize with their gym community. “It’s been great,” Pomfret said. “It allowed us to get face-to-face with our customer base. People were really excited to be outside and around friends and some excitement that isn’t their TV screen.” Putting on the classes isn’t exactly a walk in the park. Social distancing is mandatory, and instructors are under watch at the city for adhering to COVID-19 protocols. Weather-related challenges have come up, like the summer

wildfires and heatwaves. But overall, amid the COVID-19 roller coaster, the parks have proved to hold enormous value to the fitness community. “For a lot of people, I think it has been the one time each week that they are actually out with other people,” said Stephanie Stackhouse, owner of the SLO Yoga Center, which hosts five outdoor yoga classes each week at the historic Jack House lawn. “We’ve had feedback from people that it is the thing keeping them sane right now.” During a stressful and often-isolating pandemic, yoga’s meditative and FITNESS continued page 14

balancing properties are as important as ever. While the SLO Yoga Center also offers live virtual classes, it’s the outdoor, in-person classes that give members a chance to connect with each other as well as with nature. “One of the things we often talk about in yoga is this idea of getting grounded. We say, ‘Plant your feet on the earth and feel the ground beneath you,’” Stackhouse said. “Being able to literally do that in the park, step off your mat for a second, and feel your feet on the earth, it made a huge difference.” The tangential benefits of having inperson classes also stick out to Lauren McAlister, owner of the local fitness studio McAlister Training. Like the others, McAlister went virtual with her classes at the start of COVID-19. But she knew something essential was missing, which was why she also decided to take her business to the park. “Virtual workouts have been around for a long time—they’re nothing new. And it’s been really cool to see some of these brickand-mortar businesses really pivot and make it happen and make exceptional content,” McAlister said. “But at the same time, people don’t come for just a workout. They come for an experience. They come for that sense of family and for accountability.” Outdoor classes salvaged some of those communal aspects of working out. Initially, McAlister said she kept her park program simple—using minimal to no equipment, with class attendees using just their mats and their bodies. But after

a few months, her clients wanted more. Now, McAlister lugs around all the bells and whistles of equipment—making her outdoor classes “as similar as our indoor options used to be, in a safe environment.” “Our team has absolutely blown my mind in terms of, we bring out equipment, we haul it back and forth, we clean it, we make sure everyone’s spaced out,” she said. “It’s just so much work, but the clients have responded so positively. It feels normal. It’s a sense of normalcy in this crazy world of not normal.” Ultimately, instructors agree that it’s been the collective desire for normalcy and social connection during the pandemic that has sustained Fitness in the Park. Given the long, grueling trajectory of the virus, SLO Parks and Recreation Director Avakian said the city decided to extend the program through at least June of this year. “It was initiated as a two-month program,” Avakian explained, “and all of a sudden, here we were at the end of August and we were like, nope we’re still in this.” For McAlister’s studio community, the park classes have been “an absolute game changer.” She believes it’s given everyone participating a deeper appreciation for their physical and mental health. “It’s been more apparent to them—the importance of the connection, of the community, of the bigger picture things that are more important than just a workout,” she said. “People are realizing just how important it is to maintain a good health overall.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Smart cookies E ach year around this time, Nipomo resident Riana Banks and her daughter, Kaelyn, gear up to sell as many Girl Scout Cookies as humanly possible. At just 7 years old, Kaelyn is already an established go-getter, and with two years of sales experience under her sash, she knows it’s her personal interactions with potential customers that really sell cookies. “My daughter usually really looks forward to pounding the pavement and going out and knocking on doors,” Riana told New Times. That, however, won’t be possible this season. In all its cruelty, the coronavirus pandemic has taken yet another beloved tradition from us: Girl Scout Cookie season. Recent months-long surges in cases of COVID-19 put much of California in the purple tier, and Riana, who also serves as a Girl Scouts troop leader and cookie chair in the Five Cities area, said local troops won’t be able to use their usual inperson sales tactics this season. So there won’t be any sales booths set up outside your favorite grocery store or local bank, Riana said, and there won’t be any Girl Scouts knocking at your door. But have no fear, for our intrepid Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast aren’t going down without a fight. Like essentially everyone else in the world, the Girl Scouts are going virtual. Most individual scouts already have their own cookie websites through Smart Cookies, an online platform where scouts can track their sales progress and friends and family from out of town can purchase cookies and have them delivered from afar. Riana said local girl scouts are leaning hard on their Smart Cookies sites for sales this season. To draw attention to their individual sites, Riana said scouts like Kaelyn are making videos, posting on social media, and passing out flyers that contain QR codes linking potential customers to their sites. Recipients of the flyers can take a photo of the QR code on their phones, and they’ll be linked to a local scout’s Smart Cookies site. There, customers can order all the cookies they desire and have them shipped directly from a bakery or

Scouting for sweets? If you don’t already have a local Girl Scout Cookie source, you can order your favorite seasonal sweet treats from Kaelyn at app.abcsmartcookies. com/?fbclid=IwAR0Daqm2utr-MteM0ylATAATk7EFq 1uc1YacVGTumr4mIDBRUPTTaDkKMp0#/social-linklanding/98f64d1b-5952-43e5-bf7f-ac57474cf412.

delivered contact-free by a scout. That way, cookie orders can contribute both to the overall fundraising effort and local scouts, who receive prizes when they hit certain sales milestones. “That’s pretty much all we can do as of right now,” Riana said, “unless things improve and change throughout the season.” Kathryn Nielsen, director of marketing for the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast, said that although this year looks different for the Girl Scouts, it’s also an opportunity to teach girls real-world tech and digital marketing skills. “This season is about girls developing a whole new skill set and bringing them into a new digitized way of entrepreneurship,” Nielsen wrote in a statement to New Times. “We are focused on the digital and contactless world with enhanced Smart Cookies features and contactless marketing and sales opportunities to enable our girls to gain skills by learning how to build a digital business. Girls are able to adapt to this new business model the entire world is shifting to.” Last year, Nielsen said roughly $1.7 million worth of cookie sales went to local troops on the Central Coast, which includes Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. All proceeds stay local, and allow scouts to take trips, explore the outdoors at camp, and fund community service projects. “When you buy Girl Scout cookies,” Nielsen said, “you’re helping to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for girls.”

Commentary

BY DIANE W. MAYFIELD

I am a patriot And I want my flag back

W

hen did the American flag become the exclusive symbol of the far right? Was it during the McCarthy era in the 1950s, when the words “under God” were added to the Pledge of Allegiance to distinguish “Godfearing Americans” from the “godless Commies” of the Soviet Union? Was it during the civil rights movement of the 1960s, when Black Americans waving American flags were beaten back by white police officers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge? Was it during the Vietnam War, when politicians sporting “America: Love It or Leave It” bumper stickers on their cars sent young men off to die while condemning flag-burning protesters? Certainly by 1994 the association of the flag with right-wing politics was inescapable as Newt Gingrich presented his Contract with America, with its specious focus on flag, faith, and family. And by 2016, when Colin Kaepernick took a career-ending knee against social injustice during the national anthem, he was labeled anti-American by the soon-tobe American president. The ultimate desecration of the flag into a symbol of right-wing extremism surely came on Jan. 6, 2021, when the flag was clutched in the fists of pathetic yet dangerous insurrectionists committing acts of sedition against the United States government, inside the Capitol itself. There, chanting, “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” the marauders beat a police officer defending the Capitol—using a pole bearing the American flag. That moment was the nadir that has disgraced our national symbol more indelibly than any flag-burning could ever do. When the words “under God” were added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954, millions of American schoolchildren were forced to recite them year after year in mind-numbing repetition, until they had lost all meaning. I know—I was one of those children. I was born in the midst of the horrors of McCarthyism and came of age in a nation where systemic violence against people of color was an unquestioned right, where Martin Luther King Jr. was gunned down and Vietnam War protesters were beaten and hauled off to prison. And through it all, the “My Country, Right or Wrong” crowd flew Old Glory and loudly proclaimed their patriotism. As I grew up, I recognized that the flag did not stand for me or my values—that I was not, according to the powers that be, a patriot. It stood instead as a symbol of oppression of the marginalized—that is, all those who were not straight white males (and their always-subordinate female counterparts). They got to be the patriots, which made me—and all

who protested against the injustices perpetrated in the name of the American flag—unpatriotic by definition. Fine. If I was going to be labeled unpatriotic, I saw no point in continuing to pledge allegiance to a flag that had lost all meaning for me. Except by now I was no longer one of those schoolchildren mouthing the empty words of the pledge—I was a public high school teacher required by contract to lead those children in that meaningless ritual. But I refused; it wasn’t my flag. Most of my students rose automatically and mumbled the words each morning, as they’d been trained to do since kindergarten. Some remained seated. Nobody cared. One year I had a German foreignexchange student in one of my English classes. She told me how shocked she was by the morning pledge to the flag. “If Germans ever said a pledge to their flag,” she told me, “everyone would think it was the second coming of Hitler.” The years lurched along, and as I taught To Kill a Mockingbird to my sophomores, with its horrifying scene of the killing of an innocent and unarmed Black man at the hands of white law officers, my students made the connection to Trayvon Martin … and later Michael Brown … and Freddie Gray … and in growing disbelief and horror, I realized that each school year brought at least one new name to this unholy list of murdered Americans. Year after year, my students and I named them, while white supremacists waved their American flags and grew in number exponentially throughout the Obama years. Then came the Trump administration. I had never seen so many American flags, or heard so many people pronounce themselves patriots, as I did at Trump rallies I saw on the nightly news. And on Jan. 6 Americans witnessed the beating of a police officer by a white nationalist with an American flag inside the Capitol itself as the angry white mob of insurrectionists tried to overthrow the United States government at the bidding of the American president. These are the patriots? These are the upholders of our flag and all it supposedly stands for? Sometimes it takes just such a moment, just such a sickening recognition of how far we have come from the ideal concept of our “more perfect union,” to bring clarity to a hideous and untenable reality: Our flag has been stolen. There is grave danger in the power-mongers of this country appropriating the American flag as their tool; it becomes a representation of the few over the many. When the flag is seen as a symbol of oppression and intolerance rather than as a beacon of hope and possibility, divisiveness flourishes and inclusivity is diminished, even as our nation becomes increasingly diverse. The oppressors, and those who

16 • New Times • January 28 - February 4, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

mindlessly support them, incite violence to cling to the exclusive power and privilege they arrogantly believe they are entitled to. From Joseph McCarthy to Richard Nixon to Donald Trump, these pretenders calling themselves patriots and wrapping themselves in the American flag have stolen our most precious values: equality, opportunity, justice, and true freedom—a freedom of shared responsibility for one another in all our messy glory of disagreements and doubts and differences, and even—at moments—of divinity. These are the truths that we patriots hold self-evident. And I want my flag back. ∆ Diane W. Mayfield taught English in North SLO County schools for 34 years.

Letters Dear Congressman Salud Carbajal

The American people, your constituents, are suffering. We have all sat back and watched as all of you have made a mockery of this great country. As a nation, we waited months for you and your colleagues to pass legislation that was supposed to help the America that all of you claim to love so much while we learned the majority of funds went to other countries and to rehabilitate museums. The same people who supposedly represent us in government fought to impeach a president days before he was no longer a president. This ridiculous

waste of time shows the whole world what is important to all of you and your colleagues: yourselves and your selfinterests. So please stop pretending that you are doing this for the American people. Stop using us as your pawns. While you have been collecting a steady paycheck, as of writing this letter, my small business in Nipomo has not been able to be open for 199 days, even though the state of California licenses me in sanitation and I have 15 years of experience in sanitization. I operate a pristine work environment where I see one client at a time, yet I cannot work. Still, thousands of people walk through the doors of Costco, Home Depot, and Lowe’s every day while their cashiers have, most likely, never had a day of infectious disease training. Thousands of people walk shoulder to shoulder in these places while I am told I am not essential, my family is not essential, my career is not essential. Mr. Carbajal, what is it that you do exactly? Why should my non-essential tax dollars go to pay your salary that you have been receiving the whole 199 days that my small business has been ordered closed in your district? Now is your chance! Make this an opportunity to reach across the aisle and work together. Finally, put partisan politics aside, stop worrying about getting elected, and think about all the people who live in your district. Speak against bills that don’t serve the American people, like the stimulus bill, and make your constituents know you did so. Speak up against big tech that is censoring us on the internet. Do things to unite us, not divide us. Keri McMillan Nipomo

Will America heal?

J

an. 6 was a traumatic day for America as thousands of postelection protesters turned into a riotous mob that stormed the Capitol, ostensibly to protest and halt the counting and acceptance of the votes of the Electoral College. The vote, conducted by Vice President Mike Pence was normally a pro-forma affair as the outcome was predetermined: Former Vice President Joe Biden was certified as the official winner of the 2020 presidential election. Prior to the vote, President Donald Trump loudly called upon Pence to refuse to certify the election results in a last-gasp maneuver to overturn the election results, however Pence declared he had no constitutional authority to carry out such a request and proceeded to certify the election. President Trump had encouraged his most faithful followers to come to Washington to protest the results of what he and millions of his supporters believed to be a stolen election via a massive and well-coordinated campaign of voter fraud. More than 50 challenges were made in federal courts to object to alleged election irregularities that deprived Trump supporters of their votes, including allegations of switching votes via corrupted voter machines or just the old fashioned method of stuffing ballot boxes, turning a Trump landslide into a Biden win. None of the courts permitted the Trump legal teams to present evidence of their allegations; the lawsuits were dismissed

out of hand. Some were dismissed for technical reasons: late filings, wrong forms, wrong jurisdictions, but many seemed to be dismissed because the courts didn’t want to open this can of worms. Instances such as what many (including myself) observed on TV, when former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and a former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said they weren’t allowed into a Philadelphia vote counting center even though they had a legal right to be present, were brazen examples of election night chicanery by Democrats. Bondi said she obtained a court order to allow Republican poll watchers to return and observe the vote count. Lewandowski said local election authorities defied the court order and the sheriff refused to assist, calling it “an act of brazen defiance of the court.” By the time they were allowed back in the polling center, they said, all of the votes had already been counted, and Trump’s large lead was erased, with the win given to Biden. Trump’s team made 38 specific allegations of fraud in battleground states; none were investigated or answered. Allegations included Pennsylvania having counted more than 200,000 more votes than registered voters. Detroit, Michigan, was accused of a count reflecting 139 percent of registered voters voting. Similar allegations were made across the nation, that the “most fair election ever conducted” was stolen from Trump via massive fraud. Had these charges

been litigated, proven or disproven in a courtroom, tensions would have diminished. The National Review magazine outlined a detailed analysis of why and how Trump lost the election without fraud. It was a credible analysis. Observers indicated the crowd in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 numbered in the hundreds of thousands, and they were fired up. Trump should have told them the fight was over and to go home; actually he never should have encouraged them to come, as the legal fight was over. He did tell them to protest peacefully, however you can’t control crowds of that size—and once in motion, crowd mentality takes over. People will do things when they’re part of a crowd that they’d never do alone. The FBI investigation has thus far revealed that extremist groups planned to attack the Capitol before the Trump rally, however the rally provided the venue they needed. The rioters included many groups, including provocateurs from right and left and extremist groups such as conspiracy theorists, militia groups and fascist/terrorist groups. Two people (possibly three) were directly killed in the riot; two others died from medical emergencies. John Earle Sullivan, who has associated himself with both antifa and the Black Lives Matter movements, was arrested and charged. Video shows him wearing pro-Trump garb and shouting to “burn the place down.” He was previously arrested in Utah in June in an anti-Trump riot. There were likely others, but the FBI investigation is ongoing. Time will tell. Trump should have accepted

responsibility, resigned, and apologized to America, promising to withdraw from the national political scene. Instead we now have a kangaroo court impeachment in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denied legal representation for Trump during the House proceedings, with neither investigation nor hearings conducted, just two hours of speeches by both parties and a vote. In America, even a child rapist/ murderer gets a lawyer and a hearing. President Biden asked for unity during his inauguration. Proceeding with an impeachment trial in the Senate will further deepen the political division of America. He should take a cue from Lincoln and offer “malice towards none and charity for all” and get on with the business of the American people. ∆ Al Fonzi had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

F

or the record, I think SLO city Mayor Heidi Harmon is doing a pretty good job of running this town. The heart of her progressive politics is in the right place. Of course, she’s also been a very divisive figure. Not quite half the town is sick of her “I know what’s best for you” posturing. And, let’s face it, she’s not super great at accepting criticism or talking suggestions because, you know, @heidiismighty, amirite? Nowhere has this been made more apparent than the current kerfuffle over her Facebook and Instagram accounts, which were arguably her private accounts before they morphed into accounts used for city business. Even City Attorney Christine Dietrick confirmed that if public business is being conducted on them, records of her accounts must be available to the public. So when Harmon started blocking people from seeing her posts and commenting on them, she was not only being thin-skinned, she was breaking the public trust and stripping her critics of their free speech rights on a platform that had become public. All told, she blocked more than 20 people on Instagram and more than 50 on Facebook because she didn’t like what they had to say. Look, I know Harmon has been a bit of a weirdo-magnet who attracted rainbowflag vandals, live stalkers, and enough Internet trolls to populate multiple volumes of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, but

you’re a politician now, Heidi! I know you’d rather become a mittenista meme like your hero Bernie Sanders, but you get the public attention you get and you don’t throw a fit! Instead, you threw a fit. After removing the social media barriers in December to comply with access laws, Harmon decided earlier this month to simply go dark on social media, suspending the accounts. Hey, Heidi, you can ignore, block, or defriend anyone you want from your private accounts, but your own actions made your accounts public platforms for city business! Now she’s solely using the city’s emailed newsletter to communicate with constituents, and the problem is, some citizens who followed her on social media may no longer be receiving information on important matters. One of the people Harmon blocked, local radio personality Adam Montiel, complained to The Tribune that, “She should welcome different opinions, not actively and illegally shut them down in public forums used for city business.” He’s got a good point. It’s especially annoying that Harmon has essentially refused to answer questions about her behavior. Mayor Harmon, you’re everyone’s mayor, not just citizens who agree with you. What’s next?

dipshit who posts a negative comment on your page, right? Sheesh! File this next one in the “COVID-19 turns some people into assholes” department. Taste, the amazing eatery on Broad Street in SLO, recently shared a security video clip on social media showing a man tossing their menus on the counter and shoving a male worker at the restaurant. The worker was simply explaining to the um, “gentleman,” that indoor seating was closed by state directive and the restaurant could only serve food to-go. The man walked out with his three female companions only to return and square off against the worker again before finally storming out Taste, which has dreamy mac and cheese and delicious sliders, which travel well in to-go containers, ya big dope! They taste just as good in your car, you bully! Along with the video, @tastecrafteatery posted, “We are not political. We are not security guards. We are restaurant people. We work in this industry because we love it and we love our community. Sometimes it feels like maybe [we love it] more than it loves us.” Look, John and Joanna Q. Public, I get it! You’re are sick of the pandemic and your mental health is stressed, but don’t

take it out on the front-line workers who are risking their health so you can get a Very Berry Salad to go! “We jump through hoops every day to stay safe and to keep our staff employed so they can survive and pay their bills,” @tastecrafteatery continued. “We close inside, we close outside, we spend tens of thousands on parklets and equipment and heaters and whatnot. We nonstop clean and sanitize and stay late and arrive early to make adjustments. We endure one star baseless reviews and the yelling. One minute we are horrible for being open at all and the next we are horrible for not fighting back more and thumbing our nose. We are all so very frustrated. ALL OF US. This behavior towards one of our staff is beyond comprehension and will not be tolerated.” To the shover in the baseball cap, you are guilty of assault, asshat. You’re also a boor and a brute—small, petty, thoughtless, and entitled—the classic aggrieved, privileged white man. You should be deeply ashamed, and your companions should be embarrassed by your reprehensible behavior. “Today is a new day,” @tastecrafteatery concluded. “As always, we choose love. If you can’t, then go away.” Good advice as businesses begin to carefully reopen and follow state safety mandates that are designed to protect us all. Too bad there’s not a vaccine for dickheadedness. ∆ The Shredder is now hungry. Send recipes to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

Trump and ushering in our swing to the left with President Joe Biden Jr., local tunesmith Ted Waterhouse (The Howlie Playboys, Catalina Eddy and the Blue Keys, The Hot & Cool Orchestra, The Tequila Mockingbirds, The Jump Jax) decided after the insurrectionist storming of the Capital that the time was right to revisit one of his earlier songs. “I thought that in light of recent national events that need no further elaboration, this song might be timely. It’s one that I wrote a few years back, in the days of George W., but it’s sure been coming to mind during the last four years and especially in the last few weeks!” Waterhouse wrote in an email. “The lyric is from the point of view of the disembodied spirit of iconic musical hero Woody Guthrie and was borne out of the question, ‘What would Woody think of all these shenanigans?’” The Americana tune starts with a mini biography: “My name’s Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, I come from Oklahoma sand/ And when the dust blew up and the banks shut down I followed that ragged band/ Out to sunny Californey where the money grows on the trees/ And I made a few songs along the way just for folks like you and me, though I never got the do-re-mi,” Waterhouse sings, referencing Guthrie’s subsistence existence as a busking folk singer. Naturally, Waterhouse’s song praises Guthrie’s championing of the working man: “Now brother I’ve seen some hard travelin’ I’ve seen folks slave ’til they died/ I’ve seen mothers lose their babies and you know I wondered why/ I’ve seen workin’ men and farmers takin’ it on the chin/ But I always sang for the union I always

thought that we would win but now the roof is cavin’ in.” Throughout the song, Waterhouse references a bunch of Guthrie classics, such as “This Land Is Your Land,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Hard Travelin’,” “Bound for Glory,” “Pastures of Plenty,” “The Ballad of Pretty Boy Floyd,” “Roll on Columbia,” and “So Long It’s Been Good to Know Ya.” On the chorus, Waterhouse sings, “This land that’s your land been handed to greedy fools/ Thought we learned our lesson but now they’re burnin’ down the school/ Folks better wake up while there’s somethin’ left to save/ Now excuse me while I roll over one more time in my grave.” It’s a lively track with some great players on it.

It opens with a swooning wall of layered voice before Fleming’s gentle guitar enters, setting up the first verse: “You’re my light in the dark. I keep on coming back to you. I want you to want me like the others do, and I just want to fall in love with you. But I can’t and I won’t ’cause it will all just end one day. Put my heart on the line and you’ll hurt me just the same.” Like young Taylor Swift’s penchant for writing about failed romance, the teenage Fleming is caught up in matters of the heart, and like Swift, she’s also got a real ear for some amazing lines! “This is a feeling I can’t explain, like I’m driving all night going the wrong way” is such a great metaphor, and the song’s title comes from this skewering: “It’s okay if you break my heart. I’ll just turn you into art.” Fleming’s voice sounds simply beautiful, and the song demonstrates her continuing evolution as an artist.

The San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment (SLOPE) hosts a live, virtual opening reception for its latest virtual exhibition, SLOPE Paints the Serene Magic of Santa Rita Ranch, on Jan. 28, from 6 to 7 p.m. Participating artists in the exhibit will discuss their styles, techniques, and inspirations during the reception, which will be streamed live via YouTube. The exhibit and sale is scheduled to run through Feb. 28, and a portion of the sale proceeds will benefit the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo. The running theme of the exhibit celebrates the Conservancy’s acquisition of a 1,715-acre ranch near the top of Highway 46 West, between Templeton and the Pacific Ocean. A group of plein air artists from SLOPE were invited to paint at the private ranch over the past few months, and their resulting landscapes became the basis for the show. The featured artists are Dennis Curry, Karen Foster, Jan French, Sandi Heller, Dan Jones, Bernie Kurtz, Denise Schryver, Rosanne Seitz, Laurel Sherrie, Elizabeth Tolley, and Jim Tyler. Call (805) 473-4640 or visit slope-painters.com for more info on SLOPE Paints the Serene Magic of Santa Rita Ranch, a link to its opening reception via YouTube, and other details.

The Edna Valley Design Ranch features a new work by renowned muralist Shrine

A

s soon as you pull up to the Edna Valley Design Ranch, you’re greeted by a colorful, patterned mural covering the garage. It looks like something you might see in India or the Middle East. Start looking a little closer around the property and you’ll discover art, sculpture, and custom design everywhere. The brainchild of Alaina McBride, a financial strategist and project manager, the Design Ranch is her dream property: 5 acres in rural wine country located in the Edna Valley. During a recent tour of the property to watch Los Angeles-based, internationally recognized muralist Shrine, aka Brent Allen Spears, create the aforementioned hand-painted design, McBride explained her plans for the licensed vacation rental property. “I created this shadow box in the back to make being here more of an experience, to have a safe place for kids to play and use their imaginations,” McBride said, showing off the shadow box’s colorful rainbow lights. “I asked Shrine to come and paint the murals because he’s a super unique artist whose work is so playful.” The property came up for sale when the former owners realized the new Avila Ranch development with its 700 homes would abut their property, but McBride saw the new development as an opportunity. “As the ranch begins producing food, we can be their fruit and vegetable stand,” she said with a smile. McBride is also actively seeking artists for more projects at the ranch. “I have a call for artists for two outstanding projects,” she explained. “I have backlit SLO letters, and we’re seeking an artist whose work would be printed on vinyl and applied to the letters. We’re also looking for large sculptures or interactive/experiential art that can be added to the property.” Like the new sign at Pismo Beach, these are large-scale letters, which she found in Reno. “They were dismantling a Wells Fargo sign, and I asked them what they were going to do with the letters, so instead of just throwing them away, I grabbed them,” she laughed. She hopes the place will be a unique interactive experience for those who rent the vacation spot, and PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

moreover that guests will appreciate the one-of-akind design by Shrine, who said he got his “start drawing at both my grandmothers’ kitchen tables.” “I would draw the kinds of things kids draw, and my grandmothers would tell me what a good artist I am,” he recalled. “I was always told I was an artist, and so I just became one.” He also noted that his mother was a “cop” and his dad a “smuggler,” and that push and pull in different directions surely had an effect on him. Over the years, he’s spent time in Lebanon, India, Morocco, and various parts of Africa. He also grew up in Los Angeles and went to Mexico regularly, experiencing the folk art there.

The whole process, the drudgery of trying to blow up something you’ve already drawn. No.” Have you ever been to a place that feels, well, magical? Maybe you can’t put your finger on it, but there’s something special about the place, something peaceful, that makes you feel connected to the environment. That’s how the Edna Valley Design Ranch feels. As soon as you arrive, you can’t help but feel relaxed, even if you’re only there for an hour. It just feels like a big playground for kids of all ages. “Anything that goes against the cult of sameness, I’m for it,” Shrine added, putting his brush aside for a minute, stepping back, and taking in his work. ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

o-written and directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Supremacy, Green Zone, Captain Phillips) and based on Paulette Jiles’ 2016 novel, the story follows Capt. Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks), a Civil War veteran who in 1870 travels through Northern Texas reading the news to paying audiences. As he’s traveling to a new town, he comes upon a young orphaned girl (Helena Zengel), who as a child was kidnapped and raised by the Kiowa as one of their own. With her Kiowa family dead, no English speaking ability, and nowhere to go, Kidd reluctantly agrees to take her to her aunt and uncle 400 miles away, sending the two on a harrowing adventure. (118 min.) Glen I love Westerns, and this one is in some ways very straightforward but in other ways very nuanced. On the surface, it’s the story of evading danger and trying to get a little girl to her family, but just under the surface is America’s ugly stain of racism, our genocide of Native Americans, and the still-fresh wound between Northerners and Southerners. All these ideas churn through the story in subtle ways, giving it a surprising depth. Ultimately, it’s about a search for a place to call home for two people who have lost everything and everyone that mattered to them. Johanna, as Kidd comes to call the little girl, resists being returned to her white family, who she has no memory of. She’s truly alone. Kidd lives an itinerant life, resigned to his solitude as he makes his way from town to town. Unable to

Bright energy Albariño finds a home in the Edna Valley

E

dna Valley might be the coolest AVA (American Viticultural Area) in California. Yeah, it’s a chill spot to find a winery, do a little tasting, and take in the rolling hills, oaks, and vineyards—but it’s also the coolest, temperature wise, according to a University of Southern Oregon study. John Niven, who recently started Cadre Wines in the Edna Valley, said the coastal growing region’s weather is perfect for growing albariño, a grape that he’s been low-key (or high-key) obsessed with for 15 years. “I just fell in love with it when we first started making it, and really started exploring the varietal,” Niven said. “Really, just immersed myself and the winemaking team in the grape when we first started growing it and never looked back.” Niven is third generation in a winemaking family that pioneered wine in the Edna Valley. His grandfather, Jack Niven, planted some of the first grapes in 1973. That first set of vines eventually grew to become the Niven Family Wine Estates, which includes the Baileyana, Tangent, True Myth, and Zocker labels. The Niven family planted 45 acres of albariño grapes on its Paragon vineyard property in 2005, and John Niven started crafting albariño for the Tangent label. Albariño is traditionally grown along the Iberian Peninsula in Spain and Portugal. With vineyards adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, the region’s similar to the Edna Valley in that it’s cooler than its counterparts farther inland with that foggy coastal influence and moderate climate. That Atlantic coast gets more rain than San Luis Obispo County does, but the cool climate in both the Edna Valley and the Iberian Peninsula yields albariños of a similar profile: citrusy, stone fruit, a little salinity, and bright acidity.

Find some

Visit Cadre, Croma Vera Wines, and Stephen Ross Wine Cellars online to learn more about their albariños and how to purchase them at cadrewines.com, cromavera.com, and stephenrosswine.com.

“Vino debajo del mar,” Niven said. “They call it the wine of the sea because there’s so much of that influence in there.” With about 55 acres of albariño planted in the Edna Valley, a region traditionally known for its chardonnays and pinot noirs, Niven said the region now produces about 25 different bottled albariños, last he counted. “I think it makes Edna Valley worthy of being called the New World of albariño,” Niven said. “I think there’s so much upside, and it’s exactly why I created Cadre. I firmly believe the Edna Valley deserves to be in the conversation as one of the great white wine grape regions in the world.” Niven Family Wine Estates sold to WX Brands at the beginning of 2020. As a result, Niven ventured out on his own, opening Cadre in July. The winery currently boasts both an albariño and a sparkling albariño from the same albariño-covered acres at the Paragon Vineyard he helped nurture. Edna’s long, cool summers are the ticket to what makes its albariño so great, according to Niven. Grapes take longer to ripen in the Edna Valley due to its cooler temperatures, giving the high-acid grape time to mature and become less acidic. “You gotta let it hang, hang, hang to bring the acids down to where it’s not going to rip the enamel off your teeth,” Niven said. “You need that long growing season to get the acids down to a manageable level.” That acid is also what makes albariño such a pleasant wine to drink.

Newswire

OCEAN INFLUENCE Both Croma Vera Wines and Stephen Ross Wine Cellars have sourced albariño from Spanish Springs, the closest vineyard to the ocean in the region. Its grapes have more of a minerality and salinity than those grown farther inland.

Croma Vera Wines owner Mindy Oliver said that albariño is one of those white wines that’s complex enough that both red and white drinkers tend to enjoy. It appeals to a lot more palates than something like chardonnay would. Its character doesn’t linger in your mouth. And the acid gives albariño a brightness that makes it refreshing, balancing out the grape’s other characteristics.

Customers who come in and say they’re going to skip the white and go straight to the reds, Oliver encourages them to just give the albariño a taste. It’s included FLAVOR continued page 28

with the tasting anyway, she tells them, and you can just pour it out if you don’t like it. “I would say 90 percent of the time, they really loved it, and they would walk out with a bottle of it, and just be shocked,” Oliver said. Croma Vera’s 2019 albariño is sourced from the Spanish Springs vineyard, which is the closest vineyard to the Pacific Ocean along the San Luis Obispo County coast at about 1 to 1 1/2 miles inland. The wine has a touch more minerality and salinity than albariño sourced from other areas in the Edna Valley, with flavors of guava, peach, lemon, and grapefruit. “And then the acid comes through and kind of makes it crisp, and it doesn’t leave your tongue coated. It kind of cleans it off,” Oliver said. “It really livens up your palate and gets your salivary glands going.” Stephen Ross Wine Cellars’ 2019 albariño is also sourced from Spanish Springs.

Oliver, owner/winemaker Steve Dooley said he loves aromatic whites. Albariño, with its low pH is “kind of a beauty,” he said, and it stays fresh. Acidity, like alcohol, helps wines age well in the cellar “I like it when it’s grown here in cool climate. The wines are a little bit floral without being too overtly floral, because it also has a citrus quality and a little bit of stone fruit as well,” he said. “It’s nice and crisp and bright and fruity without being kind of crazy, bubblegummy fruity. ... And there’s not a lot of it.” Spanish Springs grows about 2 or 3 acres of albariño. The soil, Dooley said, is similar to Stephen Ross’ estate vineyard in the Edna Valley—sandy and not very fertile, which is atypical in Edna. The vines don’t get as big, and the yields are fairly small. Winemakers love it because the quality of the fruit is higher, Dooley said with a laugh, but grape growers, not so much. More and more boutique wineries are starting to make albariños, Dooley said. “We’re a good example. We weren’t making it 20 years ago,” he said. “I think people are gravitating toward it because it makes such an awesome wine that people are happy to drink. ... It’s got more of kind of the the classic components that wine drinkers are looking for: good balance, good acidity, good varietal characteristics, without being overpowering.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham reallys wants a glass of albariño but can’t figure out why.

Request for Proposal(s)

CALLE JOAQUIN LIFT STATION REPLACEMENT PROJECT SPEC. NO. 91118

for Primary Care Services The Cambria Community Healthcare District (CCHD) is seeking proposals from organizations or individuals to provide primary care services to its residents. CCHD is a public, tax- and fee-supported Special Services District authorized under Sections 32000-32003 of the California Health and Safety Code. Currently, the CCHD operates an Advanced Life Support ambulance service, owns a medical office building, and provides community health education. CCHD’s mission is to improve the health of District residents by providing emergency services, enhancing access to care, and promoting wellness. As part of this mission, in 2015 and in 2020 the CCHD Board of Directors surveyed area residents about access to primary care. These surveys indicated that many residents travel to receive primary care. Many others reported not having a primary care provider. In response to the survey findings, in October 2020 the CCHD Board of Directors voted to commence an effort to bring additional primary care capacity to the area. The link to the full RFP is: https://www.cambria-healthcare.org/publiccchd-documents/CCHD_Primary_Care_Services_RFP.pdf Please direct any questions to Michael McDonough, CCHD Administrator (805) 927-8304 mmcdonough@cambria-healthcare.org January 28, 2021

To verify agenda placement, please call the Department of Planning & Building at (805) 781-5600. WHAT: A request by Agzone Services LLC and Red Truck Management LLC for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00077) for up to three (3) acres of outdoor cannabis cultivation and ancillary transport. Project development would result in approximately four (4) acres of site disturbance and would include the construction of a new gravel access road, security fencing and equipment, and installation of a 5,000-gallon galvanized steel water tank. A modification from the setback standards set forth in Section 22.40.050.D.3.b of the County’s LUO is requested to reduce the required setback from 300 feet to 75.83 feet from the western property line. The project site is in the Agricultural land use category on a 42-acre property located at 8710 Carissa Highway, approximately 39 miles east of the community of Santa Margarita in the Carrizo Planning Area. Also, to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary.

NUMBER ONE SOURCE

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In the 1950 film Harvey, James Stewart plays a middle-aged man named Elwood whose best friend is a tall invisible rabbit named Harvey. The relationship causes problems with the people in Elwood’s life. At one point a psychiatrist tries to convince him to “struggle with reality.” Elwood replies, “I wrestled with reality for 40 years and I am happy to state that I finally won.” I’m happy to tell you this story, Aries, because it’s a good lead in to my counsel for you: I suspect that one of your long wrestles with reality will yield at least a partial victory in the coming weeks. And it will be completely real, as opposed to Elwood’s Harvey. Congratulations!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The light of the North Star takes a long time to reach us, even though it’s traveling 186,000 miles per second. The beams it shows us tonight first embarked when Shakespeare was alive on Earth. And yet that glow seems so fresh and pure. Are there any other phenomena in your life that are metaphorically comparable? Perhaps an experience you had months ago that is only now revealing its complete meaning? Or a seed you planted years ago that is finally ripening into its mature expression? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to take inventory of such things, Taurus. It will also be a favorable phase to initiate innovations that will take some time to become fully useful for you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In 1971, astronaut Alan Shepard had the great privilege of landing on the moon in a spacecraft, then walking on the lunar surface. How did he celebrate this epic holy adventure? By reciting a stirring passage from Shakespeare or the Talmud? By placing a framed photo of Amelia Earhart or a statue of Icarus in the dirt? By saying a prayer to his God or thoughtfully thanking the people who helped put him there? No. Shepard used this sublime one-of-akind moment to hit a golf ball with a golf club. I’ll ask you not to regard him as a role model in the coming weeks. When your sacred or lofty moments arrive, offer proper homage and honor. Be righteously appreciative of your blessings.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): William Shakespeare worked with another playwright in creating three plays: Henry VIII, The Two Noble Kinsmen, and Cardenio. The lucky collaborator was John Fletcher, who was popular and influential in his era. I propose that we name him one of your role models in 2021. Here’s why: You will have an enhanced potential to engage in fertile partnerships with allies who are quite worthy of you. I encourage you to be on the lookout for opportunities to thrive on symbiosis and synergy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Canadian journalist Nick Ashdown is amazed that white people in North America are so inhibited about revealing their real feelings. He writes, “How bizarre that in English, the word ‘emotional’ is used pejoratively, as though passion implies some sort of weakness.” He marvels that the culture seems to “worship nonchalance” and regard intense expressiveness as uncool or unprofessional. I’m going to encourage you to embody a different approach in the coming days. I don’t mean to suggest that you should be an out-of-control maniac constantly exploding with intensity. But I do hope you will take extra measures to respect and explore and reveal the spirited truth about yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo actor Ingrid Bergman appeared in three movies directed by Alfred Hitchcock. In Notorious, set after the end of World War II, she played the daughter of a Nazi spy. During the filming, Bergman had trouble with a particular scene. She explained her doubts to Hitchcock, saying, “I don’t think I can do that naturally.” Hitchcock seemed receptive to her input, but in the end had an unexpected response: “All right,” he told her. “If you can’t do it naturally, then fake it.” I’m going to suggest that you follow Hitchcock’s

advice during the next two weeks, Virgo. “Fake it till you make it” is an acceptable—probably preferable—approach.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The 17thcentury Libran polymath Thomas Browne had a brilliant, well-educated mind. He authored many books on various subjects, from science to religion, and was second only to Shakespeare in the art of coining new words. He did have a blind spot, however. He referred to sex as the “trivial and vulgar way of union” and “the foolishest act a wise man commits in all his life.” Most of us have pockets of ignorance like that—aspects that qualify as learning disabilities or intellectual black holes. And now and then there come times when we benefit from checking in with these deficiencies and deciding whether to take any fresh steps to wisen them up. Now is such a time for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it,” declares actor and comedian Mindy Kaling. Is that an unromantic sentiment? Maybe. But more importantly, it’s evidence that she treasures her sleep. And that’s admirable! She is devoted to giving her body the nurturing it needs to be healthy. Let’s make Kaling your patron saint for now. It’s a favorable time to upgrade your strategies for taking very good care of yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): All of us go through phases when our brains work at a higher level than usual. I’m guessing that you’re about to enjoy one of these times. In fact, I won’t be shocked if you string together a series of ingenious thoughts and actions. I hope you use your enhanced intelligence for important matters—like making practical improvements in your life! Please don’t waste it on trivial matters like arguments on Facebook or Twitter.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today the Capricorn artist Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) is regarded as an important and influential painter. Early in his career, though, he was rejected and even ridiculed by critics. One reason was that he loved making still-life paintings, which were considered low art. Of his 584 works, about 200 of them were of inanimate, commonplace objects. Fruit was his specialty. Typically he might spend 100 separate sessions in perfecting a particular bowl of apples. “Don’t you want to take a vacation from painting fruit?” he was asked. In response, he said that simply shifting the location of his easel in relation to his subject matter was almost more excitement than he could bear. That’s the kind of focused, detailed attitude I hope you’ll cultivate toward your own labors of love during the coming weeks, Capricorn.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “We all want everything to be OK,” writes author David Levithan. “We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for OK, because most of the time, OK is enough.” To that mediocre manifesto, I reply, OK. I accept that it’s true for many people. But I don’t think it will apply to you Aquarians in the coming weeks. According to my assessment of your astrological potentials, you can, if you want, have a series of appointments with the fantastic, the marvelous, and the outstanding. Please keep those appointments! Don’t skip them out of timidity or excess humility.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): DON’Ts: Don’t keep scratching an old wound until it bleeds. Don’t try to snatch away the teddy bear that belongs to the 800-pound gorilla. Don’t try to relieve your tension by pounding your head against a wall. Don’t try to convince a stone idol to show you some tenderness. DOs: Do ask supposedly naïve questions that may yield liberating revelations. Do keep in mind that sometimes things need to be a bit broken before you’ll be motivated to give them all the care they need and deserve. Do extinguish the fire on a burning bridge, and then repair the bridge. ∆
