SLO District Attorney offers to postpone prosecution for five protesters

D

uring a virtual appearance in the San Luis Obispo County Superior Court on March 3, the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office recommended a misdemeanor diversion for five of the seven local Black Lives Matter protesters charged with endangering and violating the personal liberty of nonparticipants in a protest last July. Citing the community’s division over the case, Deputy District Attorney Delaney Henretty made the request, asking the court to consider the defendants—Marcus Montgomery, Amman Asfaw, Joshua Powell, Sam Grocott, and Jerad Hill—lack of criminal history and the “belief that their actions were done to stop racial discrimination, a worthy goal.” “I just wanted to pause for a second amidst the storm and litigation and allegations in this case, I want to say a few things. First, these divisions and allegations are much like the divisions of late that have gripped our country. We are a nation of laws, not men,” Henretty said. “The law should apply to all people equally. It’s not our place to judge the contents of the defendants’ speech. First Amendment is precious to all of us as Americans, and it should be zealously protected. You have 200 years of jurisprudence that tells us simply that our right of free speech ends when we begin trampling on the rights of others.” A misdemeanor diversion can be offered to a defendant over the objection of a prosecuting attorney and a judge can order the defendant to comply with the terms, conditions, and programs the judge deems appropriate based on the defendant’s charges. At the end of a diversion period, which can’t be longer than a year, if the defendant complies with all requirements the judge is required to dismiss the case against the defendant. Curtis Briggs, co-counsel for protest leader Tianna Arata, encouraged all of the defendants to reject the offer. Henretty left Arata, who faces 13 misdemeanors, and Robert Lastra, charged with a felony for vandalizing property, out of the offer.

SLO city to open safe parking program at railroad square

Amid a worsening homelessness crisis, the city of San Luis Obispo is launching a new “safe parking program” in the coming weeks that will give local families and individuals a place to legally park and sleep overnight in their vehicles. Slated to open at Railroad Square—in a cityowned parking lot next to the SLO Railroad Museum, bordering the train tracks—the 20-space lot aims to replace a county-led parking program at the SLO Vets’ Hall that was discontinued last summer. SLO city has entered a one-year, $65,420 contract with the Community Action Partnership of SLO County (CAPSLO) to help run the program, which is expected to launch in “the next couple of weeks.” “I think that the county programs were really kind of like an emergency option when COVID hit,” said Grace McIntosh, deputy director at CAPSLO, “because a lot of parkers

CLOSE TO TRIAL The case against seven local Black Lives Matter protesters is still waiting for a prosecutor, however protester Tianna Arata’s legal defense team is confident they’ll win the case.

None of the five defendants responded to Henretty’s diversion proposal. All the defendants asked for a court hearing to hold the District Attorney’s Office in contempt for failing to produce documents and records relating to the prosecution’s decision in charging the protesters. SLO County Superior Court Judge Michael Duffy scheduled a hearing for April 9. The day before the court appearance, Briggs’ spoke with the Free Tianna Coalition’s Melissa Elizalde on Instagram Live to explain what’s happening with the case. Briggs said the case is currently in limbo as the defendants wait for the SLO County District Attorney’s Office or the California Attorney General to decide who will be prosecuting the case. Despite the waiting game, Briggs said the December 2020 court order dismissing the

District Attorney’s Office from the case due to bias was already a big win. Briggs repeated the allegation that other attorneys in the case have made against SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow, saying Dow was using the case to “advance a white supremacy agenda.” “He’s got it veiled under a conservative agenda, but it’s not the conservative agenda we’re worried about, it’s the white supremacy agenda that Dow is trying to promote. And we have the opportunity to get all of these documents approved, which will give us an opportunity to have this case dismissed on that basis,” he said. “It’s exciting from a lawyer standpoint, from a civil rights standpoint. Because we’re essentially about to expose all this racism in SLO.” Δ —Karen Garcia

lost their access to showers and services. I don’t believe there was ever an intention to make that permanent. But everyone knows there’s a permanent need for it. I’m glad we can just do something.” City officials said they ramped up their efforts to establish a site in recent months as homelessness has only grown in SLO over the pandemic. CAPSLO already has seven safe parking spaces available at its 40 Prado Homeless Services Center, but those fill up on most nights, McIntosh said. “In general, things have gotten worse ... in terms of the length of the pandemic and the number of people who are finding themselves unhoused,” said Michael Codron, SLO’s community devleopment director. “Folks in RVs will park on the side of the street. There are a variety of challenges with that. ... What this facility would provide, on a temporary basis, is the ability to accommodate more safe parking for our community.” SLO County residents will be given first priority for the 20 parking spaces, McIntosh said, with CAPSLO staff on site each evening to

check in users and allocate permits. The lot will be open from around 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. and there’ll be a maximum per-vehicle stay of 28 consecutive days. Shower services will not be available on site immediately, but McIntosh said she hopes they can be added soon. While safe parking users are not required to participate in CAPSLO’s case management services, they are encouraged to visit the 40 Prado center during the day to work toward a housing solution. “The hope is that we will be able to work with individuals to develop a more permanent housing plan,” McIntosh said. Codron said that the city has installed secuirity cameras at the parking lot to monitor public safety and that there will be police patrols in the area during the night. According to prior New Times reporting, last year’s program at the Vets’ Hall did not cause public safety problems. As McIntosh looks ahead, she sees an even bigger surge in homelessness coming with a NEWS continued page 6

looming end to eviction protections. It’s why she’s glad the new safe parking program is planned for at least one year. “Because what we’re seeing and we’re trying to anticipate when the eviction moratorium ends, our fear is were going to see a lot more people homeless,” McIntosh said. “There’s not enough funding and there’s not enough housing to accommodate what we think is going to be the need.” —Peter Johnson

South County Rotary collects sleeping bags for the houseless

The Rotary Club of Pismo Beach and Five Cities is hosting its first ever sleeping bag drive this month, an effort to help those in the local homeless community who might be wary of staying in congregate shelters amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “We just are very touched by that,” Rotary Club co-secretary Margie Salame told New Times. “It’s a massive problem.” The Pismo Beach-Five Cities Rotary Club regularly hosts philanthropic fundraisers and supply drives. In the past, Salame said the group collected yarn and fabric for the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office and food and paper bags for a pantry at the Oceano Family Resource Center. But recently, Salame said, the group decided to direct its focus toward addressing homelessness, which has become increasingly visible

since the onset of the pandemic due to lost jobs, lacking housing, mental illness and addiction, and domestic violence. Coronavirus-related capacity restrictions and COVID-19 outbreaks in homeless shelters locally and across the state have also made it increasingly challenging for individuals experiencing homelessness to find a warm place to sleep. “The ones who have to be outdoors—it’s so cold,” Salame said. Salame and other members of the Rotary Club had heard about sleeping bag drives in other cities and thought it sounded like a simple but effective way to help out. Launched on Feb. 22, the drive will run through March 15, and the group is accepting new or gently used sleeping bags at four locations in South County. Those donations will then be distributed to the local homeless population by the Salvation Army of Arroyo Grande and 40 Prado Homeless Services Center, Salame said. The project goes hand in hand with a Rotary Club drive in November 2020, when the organization collected around 450 coats and socks for the 5Cities Homeless Coalition to distribute among its clients. “Our club has such a can-do attitude,” Salame said. “I love it.” Grace McIntosh is deputy director of the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo, an organization that runs the 40 Prado Homeless Services Center. She said that while the county’s homeless shelters are slowly opening up more beds,

COVID-19 capacity restrictions are still in place. While 40 Prado would normally have around 100 overnight beds available, it’s currently capped at 80. SLO County has at least five emergency warming centers, which generally open overnight during winter months if rain is predicted or temperatures hit 40 degrees or below. McIntosh said the warming centers operated by 40 Prado and 5Cities Homeless Coalition have opened 14 nights so far this winter. Beds are available at the 40 Prado Homeless Shelter, McIntosh said, but many in the homeless community are hesitant to enter congregate living facilities right now. For several weeks in December and January, 40 Prado was closed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Those interested in donating sleeping bags can contact Salame at (805) 9314229 with questions. Donations can be dropped off between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at the Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic at 990 Price St. in Pismo Beach; 241 Elaine Way, Pismo Beach; 293 Miller Way, Arroyo Grande; Astro Financial and Insurance Services at 136 Bridge St., suite A, Arroyo Grande; or 1655 Waterview Place, Nipomo. —Kasey Bubnash

New bill could eliminate whale entanglements, hurt crab fishery

The Whale Entanglement Prevention Act introduced on Feb. 10 proposes

that trap fisheries such as the crabbing industry use ropeless gear by Nov. 1, 2025, to stop the injury or accidental death of endangered marine life. Authored by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) in collaboration with Social Compassion in Legislation and the Center for Biological Diversity, Assembly Bill 534 argues that crabbers use antiquated trapping gear that needlessly harms marine life. California Coast Crab Association President Bejamin Platt said the industry has been against ropeless gear because it’s not cost-effective—the current price for the gear is more than $1,700. “This is a particularly expensive gear type that no fisherman could afford and its incredibly slow and inefficient compared to what we do,” Platt said. Dungeness crab fisherman typically use circular steel traps that are submerged onto the seafloor. The traps are attached to lines marked by floats on the sea’s surface that fisherman can pull to retrieve their traps. The legislation proposes crabbers use ropeless gear with wireless technology that summons the trap back to the surface. However, several start-ups are still in the gear prototype testing phase. Platt said that the fisherman have less than a minute to pull a pot from the ocean, rebait it, and put it back in the water. “This [ropeless] gear, which every prototype that we’ve seen so far takes from eight to 10 minutes for each pot to be NEWS continued page 7

called back. It’s an electronic signal that has failed 20 percent of the time. So if I’ve got a 400-pot permit on my boat and I lost 20 percent of my gear every time I went out to try this gear, I would lose 80 pots. I’d be out of business within a couple of trips,” he said. Platt said mandating ropeless gear will mean the end of the Dungeness crab fishery. The Dungeness crab industry has taken its own steps to reduce the potential for entaglements. On March 2020, Fish and Wildlife approved the Lost or Abandoned Dungeness Crab Trap Gear Retrieval Program, a practice that Platt said many ports in the state already participate in. At the end of every season, fishermen go out into ocean and look for abandoned or lost traps and return them to the owner, who pays a fee for its return. If the owner refuses to accept a crabpot’s return, their permit allocation is reduced. The industry also created a best practicies guide, which calls for reducing the length of the buoy lines attached to traps. AB 534 is the Center for Biological Diversity’s latest move in its pursuit to eliminate entanglements. In 2017, the organization sued the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for failing to prevent commercial Dungeness crab gear from entangling, injuring, and killing humpback whales, blue whales, and sea turtles in violation the Endangered Species Act. The parties settled the lawsuit the following year and created the Risk Assessment Mitigation Program (RAMP), which looks at data and analyzes where/ when entanglement risks are higher to dictate the start or closure of Dungeness crab fishing seasons. Center of Biological Diversity Oceans Legal Director Kristen Monsell told New Times that while the RAMP regulations are a good first step, it doesn’t eliminate the risk to marine life entirely. “Those regulations only apply to commercial Dungeness crab gear. We know that whales and sea turtles are getting tangled up in other fishing gear,” Monsell said. —Karen Garcia

Pismo and Grover consider consolidating dispatch services The cities of Pismo Beach and Grover Beach are closer than ever to partnering

up on emergency dispatch services, a possibility that’s been in the works for years and that the cities say could save money and improve emergency response strategies. At a meeting on March 2, Pismo Beach City Council unanimously voted to authorize the execution of an agreement to provide full-time dispatch services to Grover Beach, which city staff say would result in hundreds of thousands of dollars of savings for both Grover and Pismo. The Grover Beach City Council will consider the topic later this month. “This is a really big deal,” Pismo City Manager Jim Lewis said at the meeting. “It’s a great opportunity for two agencies to partner. It’s a great opportunity more so for our agency to continue to provide excellent local customer service to our residents, while also extending that great service to a neighboring community that we care about. And, by the way, we might be able to have some savings.” Through the proposed five-year contract, dispatch services for Grover and Pismo would be conducted at Pismo’s emergency communication center effective July 1, while Grover’s would be transformed into an emergency backup facility. Both Grover and Pismo currently employ six dispatchers each, and through the partnership, that would be reduced to nine total positions. Grover Beach would employee four dispatchers at a cost of $540,000 in fiscal year 2022, and Pismo Beach would employee five for $637,150. That would save Grover an estimated $209,730 in fiscal year 2022 alone, and Pismo would save $127,430. But Pismo Beach Police Chief Jake Miller said at the March 2 meeting that the consolidation isn’t just about money. Regionalized dispatch services have proven to reduce risks and improve efficiency among involved agencies, and there’s been a push nationwide for about the last two decades to consolidate neighboring emergency dispatch centers. Miller said Grover and Pismo have mulled over the idea of joining forces many times in the past, and when the Grover Beach Police Department experienced a staffing shortage in its communications department in August 2020, it requested part-time dispatch services from Pismo Beach. The cities saw the initial month-to-month dispatch service agreement as an opportunity to test out the long-discussed consolidation. “And I think what we found is it was a little more seamless than we even

imagined,” Miller said at the meeting. While working together for a limited time, Grover and Pismo both saw cost savings and found that police response times and strategies became increasingly efficient and safe. In one recent case, Miller said a Grover Beach dispatcher sent an officer to a residence to respond to a report of domestic violence. The man involved was reportedly armed and dangerous. At the same time, Pismo Beach police pulled over a vehicle belonging to the man involved in the Grover Beach domestic violence case. “We would have relied on either scanning or later calling the other agency to find out what’s going on,” Miller said at the meeting. “But here, with two dispatchers sitting under the same roof, one leaned over to the other and said, ‘Hey, that subject you’re stopping has to do with this call and could be armed and dangerous.’ And that gave our officers a much safer approach to the problem.” So in February, Grover Beach requested that Pismo provide a quote for full-time emergency communications services. Grover Beach Police Chief John Peters said this partnership has been a topic of discussion for the last decade or so, but this is about the closest the agencies have ever come to actually making it happen. He’ll be presenting the proposed agreement at a March 22 Grover Beach City Council meeting. Peters said Grover and Pismo are also hoping to get Arroyo Grande on board, but whether that’s plausible remains to be seen. “Pismo Beach and Grover Beach have been working on this since last year and Arroyo Grande has been recently brought into the discussion,” Peters told New Times, “because all three cities would make a true regional approach to dispatch in the area.” —Kasey Bubnash

SLO County rolls out new vaccine lottery system

San Luis Obispo County Public Health is moving away from a first-come, firstserve COVID-19 vaccination appointment system to a new lottery-based system—a change that officials say will “ease stress and ensure more equity” in the vaccination process. Instead of announcing the availability of new appointment slots each Thursday, which are getting gobbled up within a few hours, SLO County is instead asking all vaccine-eligible residents to register once

on its website at recoverslo.org/vaccines. Then each Thursday, starting March 4, officials will randomly select which people in the larger pool will get scheduled for their first vaccine shot. “People can register online, one time. We will pull names electronically to select people in the number of appointments we have available for the following week,” SLO County Public Health Officer Penny Borenstein said at a Board of Supervisors meeting on March 2. Second vaccine shots will be scheduled separately under a different process, Borenstein said. As of press time, SLO County was vaccinating health care workers, all residents 65 and older, and some teachers and education workers. On March 3, SLO County Public Health tweeted that 2,000 locals had already signed up through the new system. Residents may also call to register at (805) 543-2444 or (805) 781-4280. Borestein emphasized that only residents who are currently eligible to get vaccianted should sign up right now. The vaccine form asks for personal information, occupation, and one’s preference on appointment location, day, and time. The county operates three clinics, at the Paso Robles fairgrounds, Cuesta College, and Arroyo Grande High School. According to Borenstein, about 50,000 SLO County residents had received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot as of March 2. As more people get vaccinated, infection rates are declining. SLO County reported 27 new cases on March 3—the same day it moved to the state’s lessrestrictive red tier for reopening the economy. But it also reported two new COVID-19 deaths—raising the pandemic death toll to 238 locally. “As always, I feel the necessity to remind the public that these are real people,” Borenstein said. “This is not the time yet to let down our guard and take off our masks. We are contending with more and more variants that are coming into the state of California.” —Peter Johnson

CAMPED OUT Homeless encampments in city parks, like Mitchell Park (pictured), are becoming increasingly common on the Central Coast amid the pandemic.

COVID-19 relief funding offers local cities a chance to get creative in addressing homelessness

A

Motel 6 that was turned into emergency homeless shelter space and supportive housing in Paso Robles is one of several fast-paced and unconventional efforts to address homelessness on the Central Coast amid the COVID-19 pandemic. But it’s one of the few that will remain when the pandemic is over. While the coronavirus and resulting economic downturn have led to concerns about a spike in homelessness, it also generated a surge in federal and state dollars aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 among houseless populations. Much of the funding is one-time and many of the resulting projects are temporary, but homeless advocates say coronavirus relief funding has offered opportunities to experiment with ideas that wouldn’t otherwise be attainable. “I just hope that there will be a lot of creative approaches to address the needs of our houseless neighbors and that that would be able to trickle into post-COVID,” said Sylvia Barnard, executive director of the Good Samaritan Shelter, a Santa Maria-based nonprofit that offers a number of homeless support services. When Santa Maria’s existing shelter capacity was reduced by about half for the sake of physical distancing, Barnard said Good Samaritan used emergency funding to create pop-up shelters at Santa Maria High School and the Atkinson Community Center. In November 2020, Santa Barbara County used $900,000 in federal Emergency Solutions Grant and Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to purchase 20 tiny pallet houses that were installed in the Isla Vista Community Center parking lot for a non-congregate emergency homeless shelter. The 8-by8-foot homes cost about $4,900 each and include two drop-down beds, storage, heat, outlets, and lighting. Barnard said she’d read about a similar tiny home village in Southern California and loved the concept, which works around the challenges in addressing homelessness amid the pandemic. “I think specifically the pallet shelter

project is one that is really unique,” Barnard said, “and it’s an interesting response to the growing encampments that we have across Santa Barbara County and the nation as well.” Gina Fischer is a district representative and scheduler for Santa Barbara County 3rd District Supervisor Joan Hartmann, whose district encompasses Isla Vista. Fischer said the Isla Vista area is home to about 40 chronically homeless individuals who are pretty established in the community, but COVID-19 led to a noticeable influx in Isla Vista’s houseless community and homeless encampments in local parks. Fischer said the pallet houses were up and running in Isla Vista just a month after the project was approved in November 2020 and will be there until the funding expires in June. Operated by the Good Samaritan Shelter, the pallet houses are geared toward getting Isla Vista residents back into healthy routines and eventually permanent housing, Fischer said. Participants are provided a clean space, meals, and showers, and they are connected with housing, rehabilitation, and medical services on-site. Of the roughly two dozen pallet-home residents so far, Fischer said 90 percent had no identification when they moved in, documentation necessary to get jobs and housing. Since they moved in, five have obtained jobs, several are attending court dates, five are working through sobriety programs, and some have received needed medical attention. “So it really has been an opportunity to stabilize their lives so that they are ready to be housing-ready,” Fischer said. But homeless advocates often complain that there isn’t enough being done for those who aren’t ready to transition into permanent housing or even shelter life—those who live in homeless camps. San Luis Obispo County resident Paul Andreano said little has been done on that front locally even with all the extra pandemic funding. Andreano is a volunteer with Hope’s Village of SLO, a nonprofit that advocates for people

experiencing homelessness. He said SLO County’s biggest problem is the number of “existing unconventional solutions that we aren’t trying out.” “Unfortunately I feel like there’s all kinds of other options out there that have already been proven out in other localities, and for whatever reason we’re not engaging in those at this point,” he said. In early February, SLO County received about $5.5 million in COVID-19 relief funding, which it distributed with an earlier allocation to nonprofits working with houseless populations. The El Camino Homeless Organization, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, and the Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo also partnered to use $15 million worth of state Project Homekey grant funding to transform a Motel 6 in Paso Robles into an emergency homeless shelter with permanent supportive housing built in. Although Andreano described Paso’s Motel 6 project as “beyond frickin’ cool,” he said SLO County has the funds to launch smaller-scale efforts that could make a big difference. He pointed to the county’s now defunct safe parking program, which allowed homeless individuals to park and sleep in their cars overnight at several parking lots throughout the county at the beginning of the pandemic. Andreano considered that program to be successful, but it ended as planned in June 2020 when funding ran out. He’d like to see the county launch a new parking program alongside a camping area with dumpsters and bathrooms. While Andreano said he agrees that homeless camps are problematic from a sanitation and environmental standpoint, he said SLO city’s typical response is a waste of time and resources. For every homeless camp the city clears out, another is reborn elsewhere. If people had a

designated place to camp, park, and deal with their waste, the city would have more time and energy to begin addressing the root causes of homelessness. “But there’s this mentality in SLO, I think, that whenever you do something like that you’re kind of aiding and abetting the homeless people,” Andreano said. Paso launched a designated campsite for homeless people in July 2020 when the city decided to clear out illegal camps in the Salinas Riverbed, but it ended months later without much success. Waste and trash had built up in the Salinas encampments, and fires were becoming a regular occurrence, but Community Services Department Director Julie Dahlen said the city couldn’t legally relocate riverbed residents during the pandemic without providing some other residency option. Paso didn’t have a homeless shelter at that time, so the city roped off an area for camping at Borkey Flats. “None of us frankly were extremely satisfied with that as an alternative,” Dahlen said. Dahlen said Paso provided tents, sleeping bags, restrooms and wash stations, trash service, and security. A local nonprofit provided free meals, and others offered support services. It took about $11,500 to set the camp up and $20,000 a month to run it, and Dahlen said it ended on Oct. 31, 2020, as planned. Attendance never exceeded 15 campers a night, she said, and frequently fell below that. Dahlen said chronic homelessness is a complex problem that’ll take the whole community and a lot of experimenting to fix. “We’re all trying to find the best answer,” she said. ∆

PHOTO COURTESY OF CINDY CRUZ-SARANTOS

An ecstasy pill laced with fentanyl killed an 18-year-old, and his mother wants to warn others Editor’s note: This is the second installment in a series documenting the prevalence of fentanyl in SLO County. The first, “Two Central Coast mothers lose their sons to accidental fentanyl consumption and want to warn others,” was published Jan. 21.

A

s Cindy Cruz-Sarantos speaks about her late son, Dylan Kai Sarantos, a smile spreads across her face. She describes him as an individualistic, continually growing, and creative young person. He made his own clothing—he once fashioned a hoodie with spikes on it—created music, and wrote lyrics. Cindy said Dylan started the process of registering a trademark for his own clothing brand when he was 17. On May 8, 2020, Dylan died of an accidental fentanyl overdose at the age of 18. His clothing trademark was officially registered on May 26, 2020. Prior to his death, Cindy and her son lived on the Central Coast, but she decided to move her family to Southern California so he could receive care for his substance abuse disorder, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and depression. Cindy is a registered nurse, but she took time off to focus her attention on helping her son. She took him to his substance abuse and alcohol counseling appointments and to his behavioral therapy sessions. “He had been fighting really hard. He had a calendar where he would mark off the days of his sobriety,” she said. Xanax had been Dylan’s drug of choice, Cindy said. It relaxes the body, but it’s highly addictive. “With substance abuse recoveries, it’s a long haul, it’s life-long. He had relapsed a couple of times, but he had changed so much in the year that he was with me in [El Segundo],” she said. Cindy said his anxiety decreased, his communication with her improved, and he was able to focus more on his schoolwork and artistic hobbies. “I got to have a really amazing kid. For a long time, without all of the anger and

high anxiety he dealt with, I think he started to learn about himself and figure out what was best for him, but addiction is strong,” Cindy said. Cindy doesn’t entirely blame her son’s death on COVID-19, but she said it indirectly played a role in it. At the time, Dylan had been through almost two months of distance learning, not seeing friends, and not leaving the house. He was a busy person and being cooped up wasn’t the best situation for him. On May 8, 2020, Cindy found her son in their El Segundo home, unresponsive. She told New Times that she knew he was gone when she dialed 911. Looking back, she regrets not taking more time to say goodbye before the emergency response teams arrived. After emergency responders took away Dylan’s body, Cindy found his cellphone and discovered that his last virtual interaction was on Snapchat with a drug dealer. The social media app allows users to send messages, videos, and pictures to each other that can only be viewed once before the content disappears. She doesn’t know how long Dylan had been communicating with the dealer; however, she did learn that Dylan purchased ecstasy from him. She later learned through the coroner’s report that Dylan took one ecstasy pill with traces of fentanyl in it and died. Her son’s death was ruled as an overdose, but that didn’t make sense to Cindy because she didn’t think her son could have overdosed from taking “just one pill.” She spent several months watching her son’s former drug dealer post his offerings on Snapchat, and she persistently presented her case to a Los Angeles County investigator—who is still looking into the case. The Center for Advanced Defense Studies, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization, reported that individuals were increasingly using the normal, open internet (not the dark web) to buy opioids directly from drug producers. It found that online transactions are made via encrypted messaging using payment tools such

as Wickr, WhatsApp, or Bitcoin. The transactions between buyers and sellers are often concentrated on e-commerce websites, online chemical marketplaces, and social media. “Additionally, many online synthetic drug sellers operate across multiple public platforms and maintain independent websites. Synthetic opioid sellers appear to use this collection of websites to cultivate a client base and ultimately direct traffic to a seller’s own site to carry out transactions. Social media, particularly Facebook, has had an important role in creating these trusted networks of vendors and buyers,” the nonprofit stated in a November 2020 report on synthetic drug networks. The report emphasized that a majority of fentanyl trafficking comes from Chinese companies. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) stated in a 2019 report that the flow of fentanyl into the United States “is more diverse compared to the start of the fentanyl crisis in 2014.” According to the DEA, Mexico and China are the primary source countries for fentanyl-related substances trafficked directly into the United States. San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Tony Cipolla said its narcotics unit has found that most of the fentanyl coming into California is smuggled across

the U.S.-Mexico border and is distributed or sold by narcotics traffickers. “Fentanyl is here in [SLO County], and narcotics detectives are coming across it more frequently in searches during interdiction stops and locations where they have served search warrants. This can range from a couple of grams, an ounce or two, on up to a kilo,” Cipolla said. Sheriff’s officers are also seeing fentanyl more frequently in overdoses and on traffic stops that could result in an arrest. In 2020, SLO County Sheriff’s narcotics and cannabis investigators seized 1,508 grams of fentanyl. The Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit mostly deals with identifying local distributors who are connected to larger drug trafficking organizations either in the county or elsewhere, Cipolla said. “It is our unit’s goal to investigate and arrest the larger distributors of narcotics, thus slowing down the availability,” he said. Between 2016 and 2020, SLO County coroner cases of overdose deaths show an increase in those caused by fentanyl or an opiate that contained fentanyl. In each of 2016 and 2017, the coroner’s office ruled one death as caused by fentanyl. In 2018, there were two; 2019 reported nine; and in 2020, the coroner’s office reported 15. In 2018, 2019, and 2020, the coroner’s office reported traces of fentanyl in one, three, and 12 deaths, respectively, caused by a combination of opiate and meth use. The report released in January had 80 cases where the cause of death and/ or toxicology reports were still pending. Overdose toxicity is suspected in 25 of those deaths—which could include fentanyl, opiate, meth, a combination of opiate and meth, or multiple drugs. In Dylan’s case, the traces of fentanyl in one pill of ecstasy ended his life. Cindy doesn’t want her son’s death to be labeled as just another overdose because he wasn’t aware that fentanyl was mixed into the ecstasy that he took—she’s sharing her story so parents can have a conversation with their children about this type of accidental overdose. “We can’t hide this. [I] am the type of personality that something happened to my kid and [I’m] going to try and save the next child,” she said. ∆ Staff Writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

GROWING SERVICES The Gala Pride and Diversity Center co-hosted a virtual town hall on Feb. 25 discussing the mental health service needs of the LGBTQ-plus community.

work in progress. That’s how a panel of local health service providers on Feb. 25 all described their efforts to better serve the LGBTQ-plus community in San Luis Obispo County. “Every day, it’s progress on that journey,” said Mark Lisa, CEO of Tenet Health Central Coast, which operates Sierra Vista and Twin Cities hospitals. “We’re not perfect. We’re working to change generation after generation of beliefs into something greater so we can all celebrate everybody.” Leaders from nearly a dozen health and social service organizations participated in the Feb. 25 LGBTQ+ Mental Health Virtual Town Hall, an event put on by the SLO County #Out4MentalHealth Task Force and co-hosted by Transitions-Mental Health Association (TMHA) and the Gala Pride and Diversity Center. The 100-minute Zoom gathering focused on the mental health challenges that LGBTQ-plus community members often disproportionately face, and the gaps in affirming services available to them to help meet those challenges. Dr. Jay Bettergarcia, a Cal Poly professor in psychology and child development and director of the QCARES research team, presented findings from a recent mental health needs assessment that documented those challenges and gaps in SLO County and Santa Maria. Through surveys and focus groups carried out in 2018-19, Bettergarcia found that 85 percent of transgender and nonbinary participants had contemplated suicide in their lives, and more than 50 percent of LGBTQ-plus youth seriously considered suicide in the past year. Local LGBTQ-plus community members reported struggling with community connectedness; discrimination; internalized stigma; and finding knowledgeable, affirmative, and affordable therapists. Those issues showed up at higher rates in transgender and non-binary communities compared to the gay, lesbian, and bisexual communities, Bettergarcia said. “Across the board, our trans and non-binary folks in our community are significantly more distressed than our queer folks or sexual minority folks,” Bettergarcia said. “It’s not a factor of having those identities. But it’s what those identities mean in the context of our society. In our society, we see that prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination are huge.” Bettergarcia offered recommendations

to local service providers—some of whom attended the town hall meeting—for becoming more inclusive and accessible to LGBTQ-plus identities. The suggestions ranged from taking part in more genderand sexuality-affirming trainings, to boosting suicide prevention programs, to increasing support for local youth, to creating a database of LGBTQ-affirming services. “We need more ways for folks to find providers,” Bettergarcia said. “We heard a lot about ‘my therapist is friendly and a good person, but they don’t know what they’re doing with my gender identity.’ So not only do they need to be friendly and supportive, but we need providers across our county who are knowledgeable, aware of their own biases, and skilled to do this work.” After Bettergarcia’s presentation, leaders from nine local service organizations, including RISE SLO, Cuesta College, and the SLO County Behavioral Health Department, took turns talking about what strides their programs have made on LGBTQ-plus inclusivity. Those included removing the binary gender choice on forms, requiring more training for their staff, and expanding services targeted to LGBTQplus populations. Across the spectrum, each group expressed a desire to do more—sharing a sentiment that the work is only just beginning. “We’re striving,” said Jill Rietjens, a division manager for youth mental health services at the SLO County Behavioral Health Department. “We’re really seeing more and more kids coming forward with gender identity, sexual orientation issues that they want to talk about and be open about. I’m watching my staff just wanting to grow and learn and move in this direction.”

Customers can receive up to $4,000 off their new electric car under this first-come, firstserve program—with $700,000 in total available funds. “While transportation accounts for an estimated 41 percent of California’s greenhouse gas emissions, currently less than 2 percent of vehicles on the Central Coast are electric,” according to 3CE. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson wrote this week’s Strokes and Plugs.

Opinion Questionable actions

Bizarre from the start, the Feb. 23 Port San Luis Harbor Commission meeting provided ripe fodder for a SNL spoof. It was complete with a white elitist badge-toting, take-no-prisoners “sheriff” from Texas and a gang of three schoolyard bullies. The night’s debacle was replete with misogyny on raw display, dismissal of a respected progressive Jewish human rights advocate, and coddling of a business owner. Then came the truly despicable part. Said bullies set about to defame a well respected, long-standing community leader—a man who is an honest business owner and public servant of widely known integrity. For what reason? Unclear. Degree of seriousness? Disputable, but sounded like some sort of one-off happening that could probably be cleared up in an instance without ego-driven personalities running amuck. Those of us who witnessed the evening’s ill-run session came away with the impression that something’s up with the (mis)management of a commissioner’s emails. The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors should delve into the situation in order to uncover the real backstory and to ensure full restoration of Bob Vessely’s respected reputation.

Be afraid, very afraid

Al Fonzi’s “The green-energy chimera” (Feb. 25) is a load of crap. Fonzi parrots the same old conservative, alternative reality BS talking points we’ve endured for the past four years. He offers no solutions, proposes no way forward, but keeps yelling: No, no, no! In Fonzi’s world it makes total sense to keep doing what no longer works simply because that’s the way it has always

been done. He’s afraid of change. That fear does not have to be contagious. Steve Ryburn Atascadero

Regarding two letters

For much of my life my place on the political spectrum was well on the left— slightly to the right of Che Guevara—but over the years I have mellowed a bit with time and experience nudging me inexorably toward the center, as far as I can get from the consummate idiots occupying either extreme. So you can imagine my leftist chagrin when after reading Al Fonzi’s recent piece (“The green-energy chimera,” Feb. 25) that I had no choice but to admit that for once Al was completely correct. In the same edition, a letter condemning the Atascadero City Council for having the foresight not to embroil their community in the community choice energy scam is a good example of delusional groupthink (“Wake up Atascadero,” Feb. 25). The author is obviously unaware that the community choice process does absolutely nothing to reduce global carbon emissions, since it involves purchasing green energy from already existing sources. Carbon emissions can only be reduced by expanding additional renewable capacity to replace that of carbon-emitting sources. The author is apparently unaware that the majority of renewable sources are only available part of the time and can therefore only serve part of the total demand. Recent California Energy Commission data indicates that in-state renewables can only ever serve about one quarter of total demand, therefore continuing renewable subsidies is a complete waste of money. Advocates of community choice do not realize that purchasing renewable energy from distant sources is the same as purchasing clear crystalline water from

a distant mountain stream and having it delivered through your tap. You do have a receipt proving you purchased pure, clean water, but that will not save you from lead poisoning from your local infrastructure or the communistic effects of fluoride. Finally, and most importantly, community choice advocates are ignorant of the dangers of subjecting their communities to the whims of the wholesale energy market. Could community choice communities face the impact of skyrocketing rates, as it recently happened in Texas? The answer is yes. Could that happen in California? It already has: Remember Enron? Just like rampant energy deregulation, community choice will also prove too good to be true. Mark Henry San Luis Obispo

Cambria’s ongoing cost

Ever since being elected to the Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) board of directors in November 2016, I’ve endeavored to keep the ratepayers of our community informed as to the ongoing costs of the Facility off of San Simeon Creek Road known initially as the EWS (Emergency Water Supply Project), then briefly as the AWTP (Advanced Water Treatment Plant), and as of January 2016 as the SWF(Sustainable Water Facility). According to the figures in the CCSD expenditure report posted in the monthly meeting agenda packet, at the end of 2019, the district had spent a little more than $17.2 million toward the facility, including the annual bank loan of roughly $660,000, as well as other assorted costs, from legal fees to annual permits, expected and unexpected maintenance, biological studies, and much more. This past year, 2020, is the first year that the cost for the plant was less than $1 million, with the total being

➤ Rhetoric & Reason [16] ➤ Shredder [25]

Letters $970,958.13. In addition, three months of expenses were less than $10,000, the first time this has happened. So as of December 2020, the amount of debt accumulated by the facility is a little more than $18.2 million. (This amount does not include costs from July 2015, when no expenditure report was available.) For years the California Coastal Commission has requested a coastal development permit application for the facility that was built in 2014, as it is located in a 92-acre environmentally sensitive habitat area. This past summer, the district finally submitted the application to the San Luis Obispo County Planning Department. Soon after, county planning required additional information. As a result, the district has so far requested two time extensions totaling 270 days, and will likely need to make another request to extend the application period to the end of 2021. In addition, further outside consultant costs are being incurred to complete the application process. As most residents of Cambria are aware, this facility has been a cause of controversy ever since it was constructed. Was it built for use only during a drought emergency as initially permitted by the county, or to allow for further growth in our town? No matter what the intention and ongoing reasons for the facility, or whether it actually ever operates, a yearly cost will continue to be incurred until at least 2034, when the bank loan will finally be paid in full. It’s likely the coastal development permit, which needs to first be approved by the county Planning Department, then the Planning Commission, followed by the Board of Supervisors, will not be forwarded to the California Coastal Commission for a final decision until the end of 2022, eight years after construction of the plant was completed.

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

Thank you, Rep. Carbajal I

n 2005, when he was 85 years old, former Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall was the subject of a feature-length profile in the LA Times. The Times rightly tagged Udall, one of the architects of the Wilderness Act, as “perhaps the politician most responsible for the public lands you hike, the rivers you kayak, the mountains you climb, and the wilderness you contemplate. And it is this legacy that he is most fearful will be lost.” The Wilderness Act called for “an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.” In 1964, it was one of three pieces of legislation—along with the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act—that essentially determined what kind of country we were going to be. My mom clipped that 2005 article out of the Times and sent it to me. She cut her teeth on political activism around the time the Wilderness Act was passed, and Stewart Udall held a special place in her heart. He was the real deal. Per the Times profile, at age 84 “he rafted down the Colorado River from Lees Ferry— named for Udall’s grandfather—and, with a grandson, trekked from the floor of the Grand Canyon up Bright Angel Trail some 7,000 feet to the South Rim. DECEASED 3, 2021 His familyFEBRUARY had cautioned against it, and he rejected a Park Service offer of a mule. ‘They wouldn’t have liked it if I hadn’t made it,’ he recounted, ‘but what a way to go.’ Once at the South Rim, Udall marched straight to the bar at the Tovar Lodge and ordered a martini.” As I’ve previously noted here, “We are among the top five countries in the world that still have a plentiful amount of land in a largely natural condition. With the right agenda and leadership, the U.S. can conserve a meaningful portion of its remaining wildlife habitat and natural areas.” At that time, the country didn’t have that agenda or the leadership. Now we do. The Wilderness Act protected about 5 percent of the country’s land, encompassing more than 100 million acres in 44 states. That total may soon rise. On Feb. 26, the Protecting America’s Wilderness and Public Lands Act was passed in the House of Representatives. One of the bills in that package was the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act. If passed by the Senate and signed into law by President Biden, the act will protect 290,000 acres in the Los Padres National Forest and Carrizo Plain National Monument as new wilderness or potential wilderness and two new national scenic areas covering 35,000 acres, establish the 400-mile Condor Trail from LA to Monterey and secure wild and scenic river status for 159 miles of streams—all with levels of protection from industrial and extractive activities significantly greater than what these areas have now. Back in the day, it took 10 years of organizing and struggle to craft the Wilderness Act and set it before Congress. It took eight years for the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act to

get where it is today, first introduced by U.S. Rep. Lois Capps, then reintroduced by her successor, Rep. Salud Carbajal. The Feb. 26 vote by the House was the result of those years of effort and coalition work across Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties, involving business leaders, conservationists, elected officials, ranchers, mountain bikers, and other stakeholders. Carbajal tenaciously kept the bill alive during a hostile political era, when the proposed legislation passed the house twice but failed in the Senate. Those who repeatedly killed the bill were the usual Republican lawmakers who wish to secure an endless future for rampant logging, mining, and drilling, despite all the evidence that this is not sustainable and is amplifying the impacts of the extinction and climate crises. They are now in a bare minority. The act is strongly supported by the Biden administration, which has adopted the goals of “30x30”: protecting 30 percent of the nation’s landscape and coastal waters by 2030. But the deal is not done. Your assistance is required. Thank our Senate champions and urge them to do all they can to persuade their colleagues to vote for the Senate version of the Protecting America’s Wilderness and Public Lands Act, which includes seven other bills covering a total of 2.7 million acres and more than 1,000 miles of wild and scenic rivers in Arizona, California, Colorado, and Washington: • Sen. Dianne Feinstein, United States Senate, 331 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C., 20510; Phone: (202) 224-3841. • Sen. Alex Padilla, B03 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C., 20510; Phone: (202) 224-3553. • On Twitter: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, @SenFeinstein; Sen. Alex Padilla, @SenAlexPadilla. • Hashtags: #ProtectCAPublicLands; #CentralCoastWild; #Protect30x30. And thank Rep. Carbajal. We may assume the spirit of Stewart Udall, always fearful for the loss of a priceless legacy, is resting a little easier tonight. ∆ Andrew Christie is the director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

Opinion

The Shredder

Winning at civility

J

ust in case you don’t know how to make arguments in a civil way, the San Luis Obispo City Council gave a little rundown at its March 2 meeting. You know, like a civics class done over Zoom where nobody pays attention. Listen first, respect different opinions, show courtesy, criticize constructively, debate the policy not the person. Wow, maybe Facebook and Twitter should adopt these rules? Nah. That would take all the fun out of nonconstructive criticism, name-calling, and demonizing the other! “Avoid personal attacks or abusive language or any sort of behavior that gets us off track,” SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon said. “My goal here in these meetings is to make progress. … I hope you will join me here tonight in that goal.” Good luck, lady! We have no idea how to conduct a policy debate without abusive language or behavior that gets us off track. Just flip back a few pages and take a gander at our opinion section. It’s not very nice. Personal attacks are America, which is why national politics can’t accomplish one iota of progress on anything! How long have we been talking about the need for affordable housing on the Central Coast? How long have we been trying to “tackle” the homelessness problem? Racism? We can’t even get our shit together about the stupid pandemic, which is/has literally affected everyone. All of the debates devolve into name-calling.

Nobody listens to anybody they don’t agree with and that’s literally why we can’t solve a damn thing! “I get it. Civility will not solve racism or any other issue that we face, and I’m equally certain that when we engage in destructive attacks against each other, we will likewise not get to where we want to go,” she said. OK. So, basically, good luck, people! If you want to know how the public commenters at the March 2 meeting responded, feel free to check out the Abolitionist Coalition of Central Coast/SLO’s Instagram page: “Everyone start out with the same first sentence,” the organization posted in its “how to” instructions. “Tell the SLO City Council they need to divest from policing and invest in our community,” the organization said on one image slide. “We will continue to repeat ourselves until we are heard,” it said on another image slide. And they succeeded! In repeating themselves, that is. They want the SLO Police Department to lose 33 percent of its funding—although, they didn’t say where that particular number came from—and they want mortgage, rent, and utility relief for all! That sounds lovely. I need help paying for my cardboard box by the creek. And they really don’t like City Councilmembers Jan Marx

and Carlyn Christianson! I guess these “liberal” council members just aren’t woke enough to be progressives and defund the police. In fact, these two explicitly stated that they wouldn’t vote to defund the police. How dare they!? I’m pretty sure I heard one guy say “Marxist” when referring to Marx. Personal attack! Tristan Love was irritated that Marx talked down to them at one of the previous meetings by saying “so many intelligent and well-meaning people are saying the same words over and over again.” Marx said that repeating the same comments wasn’t persuasive. “Why wouldn’t that be more persuasive?” Love said, not understanding that Marx was trying to get them to delve a little deeper into their policy arguments. “If this is what the people are asking for, that should be more persuasive.” Yeah! Like speaking increasingly louder in English to someone who doesn’t understand English. Works every time! Well, Jan baby, all you have to do is follow @_acccs_ on Instagram and you don’t even have to listen to the public comments! And perhaps, if you’d like to be heard and actually engage in a conversation with constituents, you could approach your constituents with a little bit less of a schoolmarm attitude? The abolitionists were super upset that Christianson referred to their demands

as “ideological delusions” and “emotions” in a previous meeting. Wow, I don’t blame them. That’s an un-courteous thing to say! “The only flawed ideology in this conversation is the ideology that police keep us safe,” Alejandro (no last name) said during public comment. Oh snap! That’s a great comeback. But is it constructive? SLO city resident Marshall James made his case that only four public commenters used curse words at a previous meeting! Only four! Another commenter said that “when the police are trusted to do anything other than responding to violent and dangerous situations, they turn those situations into violent and dangerous situations.” Could be true, but can I get some factual evidence to back that up? He also said that police shouldn’t respond to domestic violence situations—something I’m very confused about. Who should respond to those, then? Ethan Weisse said that “SLO police abuse our homeless population in SLO regularly.” Do they? Kat Mora called the council “willfully ignorant” and said that police can’t be reformed. “How can you possibly call this ‘ideological delusions’?” she asked. It’s very clear that we are in the same place we were before mid-February: Not listening to or respecting different opinions, with lack of courtesy and a lack of constructive criticism, debating the people and not the policy. ∆ The Shredder isn’t civil.

ack in January, California lifted its ban on outdoor live music. It was only for outdoor venues where food is being served, and social distancing and masks were still required, but the good news is we’re now in the red tier, which means indoor concerts at 25 percent capacity for venues that serve food. In short, live music is coming back, as evidenced by four shows this Friday and Saturday. You can kick things off on Friday, March 5, when Brass Mash plays live at Liquid Gravity starting at 6 p.m. (675 Clarion Court, SLO). “Bring a mask, a friend, and a jacket, and enjoy drinks with your meal!” the band said. “Limited seating, so get there early!” Liquid Gravity’s patio is pretty sweet. It’s in the same location as Tap-It, so if you’d been there, you know the setup. They bring in outside food venders so you can get your nosh on along with their selection of tasty microbrews. As for Brass Mash … fantastic! The horn band mashes up funk and pop tunes into super danceable party tracks. They look like they’re having so much fun you’ll regret your decision to drop out of band in the third grade. Also on Friday, March 5, out at SLO Brew Rock you can hear reggae acts The Late Ones and Dread Kennedy starting at 6 p.m. The show will also be streamed on Facebook, but there’s limited outdoor seating at the brewery. The Late Ones formed in Laie, Hawaii, but now reside in Gardena. Brothers Tui (lead vocals) and Tau Avei (vocals), along with cousin Josh Brunson (vocals), are the voices that make up the group, which is rooted “in Samoan culture and complemented by the group’s African American heritage, the familial bond between the three members [that]

The film lost to Nomadland, but it still may be in the running for an Academy Award. “The producer told me when you get a Golden Globe nomination you are sure to get an Academy Award nomination,” Fankhauser wrote in an email. “A possible soundtrack album also if it wins. I just signed a deal for a song to be in a TV series starting end of this year. Several movie and TV music agents have now contacted me about my large catalog of music from the ’60s to now. It’s helping financially during these COVID times.” Fingers crossed for an Oscar, Merrell! Hearst Castle and Monday Club architect Julia Morgan is getting the tribute treatment on a new album coming out on March 5, called 13 Women. “Castles,” by Bay area native Susan Anders, is inspired by Morgan and her best known work. “When I was growing up in Berkeley, I kept hearing about the architect Julia Morgan, since her buildings are all over the Bay Area,” Anders said. “But I didn’t learn her story of diligence, drive, and love of work until my husband, Tom, suggested her for the album. I often noodle on the piano as a way to clear my head and segue from left brain to right, and the piano figure for ‘Castles’ came from a good noodling session.” Anders’ album also features tributes to Helen Keller, Josephine Baker, Henrietta Lacks, and Amelia Earhart among others. ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Cal Poly students and faculty collaborate on a new, interactive audio play and virtual dance concert

“W

e may ask you to walk around with us and dream with us. So, if you are in a house, home, or shelter and are able to participate, please do,” co-writer and cast member Bella Ramirez says during the opening scene of Shelter, a new original audio play produced by Cal Poly’s Theatre and Dance Department. Co-written by its seven cast members, this collection of autobiographical stories, monologues, and poems is presented in a distinctive, interactive format. For example, the cast of students will often invite listeners to “move through their living space from room to room, take a seat at the kitchen table or on the edge of the bed, and gaze out their windows,” director Karin Hendricks-Bolen explained. “Due to COVID-19, many of us are spending much more of our lives in our homes, sheltering in place by working or attending classes from our bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms. Our relationship with our home is deeper and more complex than ever before,” she said. “I was inspired to investigate the complicated and rich connection to ‘home’ and to provide an opportunity for our students to write and tell their unique stories that are especially timely as we shelter at home.” Hendricks-Bolen began developing the concept for Shelter last summer, not long after the department had already laid out plans for its next in-person season, in hopes it would be safe again for audiences to congregate for live performances in the fall. “As the pandemic continued into the summer,

it became clear that the safest way to move forward would be to pivot to fully virtual productions,” she recalled. “I was in the middle of moving out of my home when I started to consider what kind of production I wanted to direct in our re-imagined season.” While packing her belongings during the move, a wave of intense memories triggered an emotional epiphany of sorts, the Cal Poly professor explained. “Without intending to, I had built a deep relationship with this house. This building provided shelter to me, and yet it was so much more than just a shelter. And although it was my choice to move, it was a complicated goodbye,” Hendricks-Bolen said. “Given my FILE PHOTO COURTESY OF BRITTANY APP reaction to leaving my old home and the memories the moving process stirred up, I suspected that I was not the only one who had stories embedded in the place where I lived.” Shelter will become available online starting on March 6, just one week before Cal Poly premieres another uniquely meta production for audiences to enjoy from the safety of their own homes, Floor Plan, which begins streaming on March 13.

from room to room, as each featured dancer performs in their respective living space. “One of the biggest creative challenges has been inventing the transitions between each dance. Since the goal of the concert is to present a home inhabited by dancers, we needed to find ways to cut from one video to the next while still proving the appearance of the dances all happening in one home,” said Christy Chand, the show’s director and choreographer. Unable to coordinate each segment with the show’s performers in person, Chand created a color-coded sheet for each dancer that illustrated ways in which they should film their portions. “Directing a dance concert always presents organizational challenges, but doing so without one synchronous meeting in which everyone involved in the production was present has made organization the most important element of this process,” said Chand, who misses the camaraderie of rehearsing with her team in a lively studio setting. “I miss being in the same space as the company and creative team,” she said. “But the comments I’ve heard from the experiences that the students and choreographers are sharing truly makes all of the behind-the-scenes work worth it.” Many of the show’s featured performers probably adopted a new outlook on spatial awareness during the project, Chand said. “Dancers have spent months trying to clear out their space to avoid smacking shins or elbows onto walls, ottomans, and people,” she said. “Our process invited spatial research that will inevitably change the way the dancers live in their homes.” ∆ Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood is working from home.

He’s hoping to reconnect with his wife after a bout of infidelity when suddenly Florida is wiped out by fragments from a comet with more on the way. It quickly becomes clear life on Earth is about to end, and the film becomes a race for the Garritys to make it to underground bunkers in the titular Greenland. Is a global pandemic the right time for a disaster film? Maybe not, but there’s something familiar about how quickly a segment of society seems to lose its moral compass at the first sign of trouble.

It will probably appeal to a fairly narrow audience: those with PTSD, the loved ones of someone with PTSD, or anyone interested in alternative therapies. It mostly consists of Gier interviewing treatment experts and soldiers who have responded positively to equine therapy and ART, and it’s inspiring to hear about people who are able to get off pharmaceuticals and get their life back. The production values are equivalent to a TV infomercial, so don’t expect a lot of amazing filmmaking. Gier wants to get the information out and alleviate soldiers’ suffering.

Shekamoo Grill serves up succulent, flamekissed Persian kabobs

K

oobideh—that’s pronounced coobee-deh—is the best grilled ground meat you will ever eat. Sometimes it’s just lamb, sometimes it’s just beef, but traditionally, it’s a combination of the two mixed with grated onion, sumac, salt, and pepper. If you’ve never heard of it, don’t feel bad. Koobideh is a Persian kabob (no, I didn’t mean to write “kebab”). Similar to so many other ethnic foods, Persian cuisine doesn’t really have a big foothold in SLO County. I grew up eating the succulent kabob alongside platters of delicate white and yellow rice laced with saffron, butter, and salt or wrapped in flatbreads like lavash or sanghak so the juicy meat soaked into the bread. I’m salivating just writing about it. Seriously, it’s so good. But then again, I’m Persian—my mother is from Iran—so I may be a little biased. Although it sounds simple, koobideh is hard to make. Pressed by hand, the mixture is wrapped around 1-inch-wide stainless steel skewers and grilled over charcoal. If it’s not done right, the meat just falls into the flames as it’s cooking. There’s an art to it—and Sina Shakerian has damn near perfected it. “There’s so much to it with koobideh,” Shakerian said. “Once you take a bite … .” You will never be the same. Shakerian has been grilling up that and more for North County customers for almost a year through pop-up and catering events. He and his wife, Lindsey, run Shekamoo Grill, serving Persianstyle marinated chicken and tri-tip kabobs, kabob-e koobideh, herbed yogurt, Shirazi salad (cucumber, tomatoes, onion, and lemon juice), and classic Persian rice since last April at places like the Rodeo Bar in Paso Robles. With a catering permit, but no permanent kitchen,

MAN Sina Shakerian and his wife, Shakerian, started Shekamoo Grill as a pop-up restaurant to share food with North SLO County.

Shekamoo uses commissary kitchens and does pop-up events where it can. Raised in Los Angeles and Orange County, Shakerian said he’s been cooking Persian food with his parents since he was 15 or 16. Once or twice a month, his father would fire up the grill to make koobideh. Shakerian said it was such a process, watching his dad take a ball of meat and turn it into what it becomes. “He wouldn’t let me do it, because it’s hard,” Shakerian said. “Eventually, I just got myself there.” Behind his father’s back, Shakerian would practice the art form. Trying to get the spice mixture right and getting that ground meat to stick to the skewer just so. “Then, when I grew up, we started doing it together. It’s been an interesting journey, and being able to share it with people. … It feels good.” He contends that the best part of the Shekamoo story is its namesake, his wife, who he calls shekamoo. It’s an endearing

name that roughly translates to someone who likes to eat, but in a playful way. Shakerian said he and Lindsey met while taking engineering classes at Cal Poly. They would study together, and when he would go to LA for a visit, his mother would send him back with lots of Persian food, which Lindsey tried and, of course, loved. “She started out not knowing anything about cooking,” he said. “Once we got together, we started experimenting.” His first meal at her place consisted of a box of macaroni and cheese, which he jazzed up with onion and hot dog. And while he never ventured outside of the cultural cuisine he grew up eating, Shakerian said Lindsey was soon cooking all kinds of things—such as the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich with home-pickled carrots and onions. “And it’s come full circle, because she’s gotten me to come out of the box and challenged me to try to cook new things,” he said. “It’s been a beautiful journey for us.”

DELICIOUS Although fried cannoli isn’t traditionally Persian, the Middle Eastern flavors of the ice cream Shekamoo Grill squeezes inside them go perfectly with the crunchy shell, pistachios, and honey.

HEAT’S ON Traditionally grilled over charcoal, the chicken kabob is marinated in lime juice, yogurt, saffron, and onions for a couple of days before it meets the heat.

Married in 2015, Lindsey works as a planner/project manager at PG&E, while Shakerian taught math at local high schools until 2020, when he started looking for work in the North County restaurant industry, manning the grill. “There’s nothing like an open flame,” he said. As the idea of trying to start their own food business became more real, Shakerian said he thought he’d better give himself a foundation of knowledge to pull from. He worked at Jeffry’s Wine Country BBQ at first, before moving over to The Hatch, both of which were affected by COVID-19 restrictions. Now, he’s grilling up steaks and such at the French Les Petites Canailles in Paso Robles. While the grill at LPC is fueled with gas, Shakerian’s Persian kabob grill is made for charcoal. A box designed to fit the telltale Persian skewers just right, the grill is deep so the charcoal can hum its deep amber dance of heat, sending up the occasional flame that rises to lash the meat. Chicken and tri-tip get cut into chunks and marinated in a saffron- and oniontinged acid like lime and yogurt for two to three days to make it tender. Chicken is layered onto a wide skewer, as are the tri-tip, tomatoes, and peppers. Grilled tomatoes are something else: soft and succulent with a little bit of char, they’re delicious with rice, which you scoop up in a spoon with a little bit of grilled meat. When done right, joojeh kabob (that’s the chicken) and kabob-e barg (that’s the steak), are tender and packed with flavor— the meat just pulls apart with a little tug. Saffron, citrus, onion, and yogurt mingle into the meat. You can taste the grill. The real trick to tender meat, Shakerian said, is to add butter as it’s grilling. “You have to butter it and lime it so it doesn’t dry out,” he said. “You can never hurt a meat by adding a little butter to it.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham is ready for another skewer.

The project is a request for a subdivision of one existing parcel totaling 0.978 acre into three individual parcels meant to facilitate residential development on land in the R-1 (Low Density Residential) zone. The new parcels would range in size from 0.225 acre to 0.418 acre, and would be located at 163 Serrano Heights Drive, at the western edge of the city limits. Access improvements would include a proposed 20-foot-wide access road across Proposed Parcel 1 and Proposed Parcel 2, a 12-foot-wide driveway across a portion of Proposed Parcel 2 for access to Proposed Parcel 3, and improvements to Serrano Heights Drive located in an existing 60-foot-wide access easement. While no specific development proposal has been identified for the site, based on the underlying zoning and proposed parcel sizes, this analysis assumes that future development would consist of residential development. Reference copies of the Mitigated Negative Declaration are available on the City’s website at http://www.slocity.org/ government/department-directory/community-development/ documents-online/environmental-review-documents. If you are unable to access the internet, please contact Kyle Bell at kbell@ slocity.org or (805) 781-7524 to arrange for an alternative means to view the study, as the City offices are currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated Shelter at Home Order. The required 30-day public review period for the Mitigated Negative Declaration will extend from Thursday, March 4, 2021 to Monday, April 5, 2021. Anyone interested in commenting on the document should submit a written statement to the City of San Luis Obispo, Community Development Department, 919 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, Attention: Kyle Bell, Associate Planner, or by email to kbell@slocity.org, by 5:00 p.m., by April 5, 2021.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: What’s your theme song for 2021 so far? Freewillastrology.com ARIES (March 21-April 19): In late April of 1969, Cambridhgeshire, UK, hosted the first-ever Thriplow Daffodil Weekend: a flower show highlighting 80 varieties of narcissus. In the intervening years, climate change has raised the average temperature 3.24 degrees Fahrenheit. So the flowers have been blooming progressively earlier each year, which has necessitated moving the festival back. The last pre-COVID-19 show in 2019 was on March 23 and 24, a month earlier than the original. Let’s use this as a metaphor for shifting conditions in your world. I invite you to take an inventory of how your environment has been changing, and what you could do to ensure you’re adapting to new conditions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Author Leo Buscaglia told us that among ancient Egyptians, two specific questions were key in evaluating whether a human life was well-lived. They were, “Did you bring joy?” and, “Did you find joy?” In accordance with your current astrological potentials, I’m inviting you to meditate on those queries. And if you discover there’s anything lacking in the joy you bring and the joy you find, now is a very favorable time to make corrections.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): At age 11, the future first president of the United States George Washington became the “owner” of 10 slaves. A few years later he “bought” 15 more. By the time he was president, 123 men, women, and children were struggling in miserable bondage under his control. Finally, in his will, he authorized them to be freed after he and his wife died. Magnanimous? Hell, no. He should have freed those people decades earlier—or better yet, never “owned” them in the first place. Another Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin not only freed his slaves but became an abolitionist. By my count, at least 11 of the other Founding Fathers never owned slaves. Now here’s the lesson I’d like us to apply to your life right now: Don’t procrastinate in doing the right thing. Do it now.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): During World War II, the Japanese island of Ōkunoshima housed a factory that manufactured poison gas for use in chemical warfare against China. These days it is a tourist attraction famous for its thousands of feral but friendly bunnies. I’d love to see you initiate a comparable transmutation in the coming months, dear Cancerian: changing bad news into good news, twisted darkness into interesting light, soullessness into soulfulness. Now is a good time to ramp up your efforts.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Scars speak for you,” writes author Gena Showalter. “They say you’re strong, and you’ve survived something that might have killed others.” In that spirit, dear Leo, and in accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to authorize your scars to express interesting truths about you in the coming weeks. Allow them to demonstrate how resilient you’ve been, and how well you’ve mastered the lessons that your past suffering has made available. Give your scars permission to be wildly eloquent about the transformations you’ve been so courageous in achieving.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): According to novelist Doris Lessing, “Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who’d be kind to me.” She implied that hardly anyone ever gets such an experience—or that it’s so rare as to be always tugging on our minds, forever a source of unquenched longing. But I’m more optimistic than Lessing. In my view, the treasured exchange she describes is not so impossible. And I think it will especially possible for you in the coming weeks. I suspect you’re entering a grace period of being listened to, understood, and treated kindly. Here’s the catch: For best results, you should be forthright in seeking it out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “How much has to be explored and discarded before reaching the naked flesh of feeling,” wrote

ADULT SERVICES

Awesome Exotic Dancers

composer Claude Debussy. In the coming weeks, I hope you’ll regard his words as an incitement to do everything you can to reach the naked flesh of your feelings. Your ideas are fine. Your rational mind is a blessing. But for the foreseeable future, what you need most is to deepen your relationship with your emotions. Study them, please. Encourage them to express themselves. Respect their messages as gifts, even if you don’t necessarily act upon them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may never wander out alone into a dark forest or camp all night on a remote beach or encounter a mountain lion as you climb to a glacier near the peak of a rugged mountain. But there will always be a primeval wilderness within you—uncivilized lands and untamed creatures and elemental forces that are beyond your rational understanding. That’s mostly a good thing! To be healthy and wise, you need to be in regular contact with raw nature, even if it’s just the kind that’s inside you. The only time it may be a hindrance is if you try to deny its existence, whereupon it may turn unruly and inimical. So don’t deny it! Especially now. (PS: To help carry out this assignment, try to remember the dreams you have at night. Keep a recorder or notebook and pen near your bed.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “What damages a person most,” wrote philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, “is to work, think, and feel without inner necessity, without any deep personal desire, without pleasure—as a mere automaton of duty.” Once a year, I think every one of us, including me, should meditate on that quote. Once a year, we should evaluate whether we are living according to our soul’s code; whether we’re following the path with heart; whether we’re doing what we came to earth to accomplish. In my astrological opinion, the next two weeks will be your special time to engage in this exploration.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What are your edges, Capricorn? What aspects of your identity straddle two different categories? Which of your beliefs embrace seemingly opposed positions? In your relations with other people, what are the taboo subjects? Where are the boundaries that you can sometimes cross and other times can’t cross? I hope you’ll meditate on these questions in the coming weeks. In my astrological opinion, you’re primed to explore edges, deepen your relationship with your edges, and use your edges for healing and education and cultivating intimacy with your allies. As author Ali Smith says, “Edges are magic; there’s a kind of forbidden magic on the borders of things, always a ceremony of crossing over, even if we ignore it or are unaware of it.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): According to intermedia artist Sidney Pink, “The idea of divine inspiration and an aha moment is largely a fantasy.” What the hell is he talking about?! That’s fake news, in my view. In the course of my creative career, I’ve been blessed with thousands of divine inspirations and aha moments. But I do acknowledge that my breakthroughs have been made possible by “hard work and unwavering dedication,” which Sidney Pink extols. Now here’s the climax of your oracle: You Aquarians are in a phase when you should be doing the hard work and unwavering dedication that will pave the way for divine inspirations and aha moments later this year.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): For you Pisceans, March is Love Yourself Bigger and Better and Bolder Month. To prepare you for this festival, I’m providing two inspirational quotes. 1. “If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.” —Barbara De Angelis 2. “Loving yourself does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.” —Margo Anand ∆
