Local hire provision holds up Central Coast Blue project agreement

he Arroyo Grande City Council voted on March 23 that it will not sign a multi-city agreement with Grover Beach and Pismo Beach to move forward on the Central Coast Blue water project unless it includes a local hire provision—setting up a standoff between the three cities. While Pismo’s and Grover’s city councils both signed the operating agreement and approved the recycled wastewater project’s environmental impact report, Arroyo Grande council members took issue with its lack of commitment to a community workforce agreement, which would guarantee that local skilled workers are hired for the estimated $50 million project. “In the most simple terms, it’s about fighting for local jobs,” Arroyo Grande City Councilmember Jimmy Paulding told New Times. “The dispute is that the provisions that ended up in the draft operating agreement were substantially watered down and talked about that the cities would make a good faith effort to ensure local hire, but that’s not how community workforce agreements work. When you attached one of those to a large public works project, you’re ensuring local hire.” The Central Coast Blue project, which has been in the planning stages for several years, centers on the construction of a new wastewater treatment facility in South County that would inject purified water into the Santa Maria Valley Groundwater Basin to thwart seawater intrusion, boosting regional water supply. The project’s proposed operating agreement spells out the cost sharing responsiblities and oversight roles for the three cities, as the parternship moves toward the design and construction phase. According to Paulding and the Arroyo Grande City Council, now is the best time for the city to take a stand to ensure that a community workforce agreement is included with the project. Once they finalize the operating agreement, the city will have signficantly less leverage to influence that conversation,

councilmembers said. “The city of Arroyo Grande ... we were going to be paying roughly 40 percent of the project cost,” Paulding said. “As the largest financial stakeholder, I think our council made it clear—this was a 5-0 vote—that this is something we value, and now more than ever we need to do everything we can as policy makers to ensure we’re hiring our local workforce.” In response to questions from New Times, Grover Beach City Manager Matt Bronson said that the city is also interested in a commuity workforce agreement, but CENTRAL COAST BLUES Water Systems Consulting Engineer said “there are financial, Dan Heimel leads a 2019 tour of a water recycling demonstration facility. The Central Coast Blue project would inject treated operational, legal, and political wastewater into the Santa Maria Valley Groundwater Basin. considerations that would need to be addressed.” He expressed to drought conditions. We again are at the a preference for finalizing the precipice of drought that will devastate the operating agreement now, and negotiating a residents, busineses, and local economy of our local hire provision in the months ahead. The agencies also have deadlines to consider communities.” for the project, he said. While Paulding said Arroyo Grande knows “With a key grant application deadline of that the cities, especially Pismo Beach, are April 23, it is imperative to have the operating “unhappy with our decision,” the local hire issue agreement approved prior to this grant is potentially a dealbreaker for the city. He said submittal deadline,” Bronson said via email. communtiy workforce agreements are in use for Pismo Beach City Manager Jim Lewis said in other wastewater projects in SLO and the South a statement that “construction procurement” is SLO County Sanitation District. “one of the decisions that remains to be made,” “Say Pismo Beach doesn’t want this, then I adding that “decisions must be made that guess it’d be their choice to move forward with ensure the project is completed, while defending the project without us, if Grover was on board,” the rates the families and businesses pay.” Paulding said. “The city of Arroyo Grande He did not elaborate on the city’s position on would participate in a future time, in terms of communtiy workforce agreements. acquiring water when needed.

Grover Beach plans big changes at Ramona Park

popular among some homeless residents. “The plans look amazing and I would love to see this place filled with families from the neighborhood,” resident Savanna Ford wrote in an email to City Council in the fall of 2020, when the city approved its master plan for park restorations. “However, this park is not a safe place to take kids. Please remove all the drug addicts and homeless people who live there.” In the last month, rumors that Ramona Park could become a designated campground for individuals experiencing homelessness have spread among South County residents on social media, along with concerns about what some say is an increasing prevalence of homeless camps at the park. City Manager Matt Bronson denied those claims, but he said that the city often receives complaints about homeless individuals camped near the gazebo. The city is limited in what it can do to address homeless camps, Bronson said, because there aren’t any homeless shelters in the Five Cities area. “There never has been,” he told New Times.

Grover Beach residents can expect to see a lot of changes at Ramona Garden Park in the coming years, including the demolition of a gazebo that some homeless residents use for overnight shelter. At a meeting on March 22, Grover Beach City Council approved the city’s capital improvement program for fiscal years 2022-26, a plan that outlines a schedule for expenditures and projects estimated to cost $50,000 or more that could be completed in the next four years. The plan includes roughly 22 projects proposed for fiscal year 2022, including improvements to the police station, City Hall, street and storm drain maintenance, and water main upgrades. There are also roughly $512,000 worth of updates coming to various Grover Beach parks in fiscal year 2022, including the first steps of a renovation of Ramona Garden Park. While Ramona Park is often used as a hub for city events, music festivals, and holiday celebrations, its public restrooms and gazebo make the park

“There needs to be.” In 2018, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Martin v. Boise that ordinances prohibiting sleeping or camping on public property can’t be enforced in localities without meaningful alternatives, such as shelter space or designated campsites. In April 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also issued guidance discouraging the dispersal of homeless camps during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bronson said Grover Beach can’t legally prohibit residents from sleeping in the park at this time. But when the city drafted its Ramona Park master plan in 2019 and 2020, residents who attended outreach events and completed a city survey said they considered homeless camps and drug use at the park priority problems in need of addressing. So Grover Beach plans to demolish the gazebo, which Bronson said doesn’t get much use anyway, to make way for a fitness space and outdoor classroom-event space hybrid. New bathrooms will be installed near 10th Street, NEWS continued page 6

along with a playground, plaza, and an expanded amphitheater. There’s no clear timeline for the updates just yet, but Bronson said construction documents for the Ramona Park project will be developed in fiscal year 2021-22. Bronson said the city is working with the 5Cities Homeless coalition to ensure that the houseless people camping in Ramona Park are connected to services. It’s never easy, he said, to balance the needs of those experiencing homelessness with the needs and concerns of the public at large. “Homelessness is the most difficult public policy issue that we face as a community,” he said. Janna Nichols, executive director of the 5Cities Homeless Coalition, said local homeless people have long camped out at Ramona Park and on other public property throughout South County, and without shelter space nearby, it has always been a complicated problem. “Shelter services in South County have been a challenge for a long, long time,” Nichols said. “We obviously have been working for a long time to try to create more shelter services in the Five Cities, but for one reason or another we have not been successful in finding a location.” Finding adequate land or facility space is often difficult, as is appeasing neighbor concerns. Although the 5Cities Homeless Coalition does have a warming center, Nichols said even that has had to move locations five times in the last five years. “Regardless, the closest shelter is 20 miles away,” she told New Times. “That is problematic for lots of reasons.” Without a shelter, 5Cities Homeless Coalition staff do both outreach and case management work largely in the field. That makes it harder to keep tabs on clients, Nichols said, harder to build trust, and harder to get people in need to focus on things like treatment, jobs, and housing, when all they can think about is where they’re going to sleep at night. At the beginning of the pandemic, the 5Cities Homeless Coalition used 10 campsites at the Coastal Dunes RV Park and Campground as shelter space for a few homeless individuals and families. Nichols said seven of them found housing within two months. That pilot project was so successful, Nichols said, because of the case management consistency offered with even limited shelter. While Nichols said she understands the community’s concerns regarding encampments at Ramona Park, she wonders where else those people are supposed to go. “We’re happy to help,” she said, “but I don’t have a shelter so there’s only so much I can do.” —Kasey Bubnash

Activists say DA’s requested gag order will silence protesters

The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office filed a motion on March 26 seeking a gag order against Tianna Arata and three other Black Lives Matter protesters and their respective attorneys, citing a collective media campaign that’s influencing the county’s jury pool. On March 29, about 40 people gathered in front of the DA’s Office holding signs that read “Stop silencing Black voices” and “Dan, you already got disqualified, give it up.” The group called SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow a racist and accused the office of witness tampering.

It pointed to an article from The Tribune in October 2020, in which one of the drivers listed in the District Attorney’s Office complaint against Arata said he was cajoled into saying he “feared for his safety” when protesters blocked Highway 101 on July 21. According to the article, the unnamed driver said “he is not a victim.” According to documents obtained by New Times, the DA’s March 26 motion would block defendants Arata, Marcus Montgomery, Amman Asfaw, and Joshua Powell from making case-related comments to the public. The motion accuses several defense attorneys of making inflammatory statements about the attorney general, district attorney, and the SLO Superior Court and releasing evidence to the media. “We will oppose this gag order at every stage. We are in the process of drafting an opposition,” Arata’s attorney Curtis Briggs said via email. Briggs said the gag order request is illegal and “designed to quell scrutiny of Dan Dow’s fitness for public office.” In a statement to New Times, Michelle Arata, Tianna Arata’s mother, said that the gag order is “no different than any other historical or intentional suppression of marginalized voices whose truth has become too powerful.” “Just like the new Jim Crow happening in Georgia around voter suppression, the district attorney’s request to put a gag order on my daughter, the other activists, and their legal representation is once again a dangerous tactic to censor their freedom of speech. It is purposely dehumanizing to silence their voices,” her statement read. “They are afraid because the snippets of truth that have been revealed from the defense directly contradicted the bias and racially-charged narrative the San Luis Obispo Police Department and the district attorney have created to criminalize these youth and sway public perception. Through interviews, national TV appearances, and social media, Tianna has been able to build a successful platform to advocate for herself and others, and the district attorney is threatened by this.” The motion states that beginning in February, several of the defendants and their attorneys ratcheted up their media campaign. “The unfounded, false, and prejudicial claims have one goal: provide soundbites for media attention and to correspondingly influence the jury pool. This office, the California Highway Patrol, and the San Luis Obispo Police Department have continued to refuse in joining defense’s effort to litigate these cases before the public. As such, one-sided, highly prejudicial narrative has gone unanswered, risking prejudice within the pool of jurors,” the document claims. Part of that narrative, the motion states, is one defense attorney’s claim that the California Highway Patrol and the District Attorney’s Office lied about an altercation between protesters and vehicles on Highway 101. The motion cites four other instances of alleged influencing, one of which said that Briggs and two other attorneys (Brian Ford and Vincent Barrientos) are subjects of a gag order in Alameda County in relation to the Ghost Ship fire case. Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Autrey James sought a gag order, the motion states, based on extensive media-attention acts by the defense attorneys.

Briggs told New Times that Dow poses a clear and present danger to the rule of law in SLO. “Dan Dow has no respect for the law and for court orders. First, he brought fabricated charges against Tianna, then tried to raise money for reelection by prosecuting BLM, he refuses to turn over evidence as ordered by the court, and now he refuses to acknowledge that he is not supposed to prosecute this case,” he said. —Karen Garcia

SLO County, state sign agreement on Blue Shield vaccine distribution

San Luis Obispo County inked a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the state on March 30 that sets the ground rules for COVID-19 vaccine distribution in the region—something many anxious counties are now doing as Blue Shield assumes control of the statewide vaccination network. Local officials say the agreement helps preserve SLO County’s control over how it manages allocated doses and also requires Blue Shield to consult with them on future vaccine-related decisions. “We believe the MOU will allow the county and its partners to continue to safely and efficiently vaccinate as many residents as possible and will allow for greater communication between the state, county, and Blue Shield,” SLO County Counsel Rita Neal told New Times by email. When the state announced plans in January to outsource vaccine distribution responsibilities to Blue Shield, many counties expressed concerns about how the change could disrupt local vaccination efforts already underway. The MOU aims to resolve those concerns, Neal said. It ensures that SLO County can continue calling the shots on how vaccines are distributed locally, including deciding how many doses are given to third-party health care providers. The county in turn agreed to follow the state’s criteria for vaccine eligibility and equity, including “targeting underserved communities that have suffered a disproportionate burden of the COVID-19 pandemic.” The agreement also relieves pressure on the county to switch over to the state’s much-maligned MyTurn online sign-up portal for vaccine appointments. Instead, the MOU allows the SLO County to continue using its local vaccine registry system and transition to MyTurn “if and when it’s determined that such a transition will not interfere with the county’s own web-based sign-up system and will not hamper our vaccination efforts,” according to Neal. Despite the wins for the county, the MOU still asserts that the state and Blue Shield reserve the ultimate right to control vaccine allocation amounts to the county, and that “changing circumstances in the pandemic may require reallocation of vaccine to providers and to communities that are suffering from significant outbreaks of COVID-19.” As of March 26, SLO County Public Health had received a total of 95,775 vaccine doses from the state and administered 90,755 shots. Of those totals, 56,584 residents have received at least their first dose, while 34,171 have received both doses. Those numbers do not include doses sent to and administered by other local vaccine

providers, like pharmacies. On March 31, SLO County announced it had opened its vaccine lottery registry to all residents over age 30. Visit recoverslo.org for registration details. —Peter Johnson

Morro Bay discusses battery plant

A 22-acre, 600-megawatt battery plant could begin construction in of Morro Bay as early as 2022. On March 29, Morro Bay City Councilmember Dawn Addis and Mayor John Headding—members of the Morro Bay City Council power plant subcommittee—hosted a virtual discussion with representatives of Texas-based retail electricity and power generation company Vistra Energy. Vistra Energy initially applied for a permit in 2020 to build a 4-acre, 200-megawatt battery storage plant but withdrew the application. In January, the company submitted another application for a 600-megawatt battery plant with plans to feature 2,400 megawatt-hours of lithium-ion batteries. The proposed project would have enough power to supply 450,000 homes. During the March 29 discussion, Brad Watson, Vistra’s director of community affairs, said that the project currently in the environmental review process would revitalize Morro Bay’s existing retired power plant site. “It would use the active transmission lines with enhanced grid stability, it would fill in the reliability gap as created by intermittent renewables that you have more and more of in California. It would provide clean, emission-free, affordable electricity to consumers and would support California’s sustainability goals and mandates. Importantly, it would benefit the community through a major capital investment of more than half a billion dollars,” Watson said. “That would diversify the local economy and the tax base.” The proposed project site is the location of a former oil tank farm, north of the three stacks. Watson said the company anticipates construction to last approximately three to four years. If approved, the battery plant is expected to generate $4.5 million in annual property taxes, of which about $500,000 would go to Morro Bay. Anthony Maselli, Vistra’s senior vice president of development and strategy, said the battery in an energy storage plant has a 20-year life cycle. The plant would include an empty cell enabling it to replace or add battery packs when needed. During the question-and-answer portion of the forum, residents asked what would happen to the site’s existing building and the three stacks the community is known for. Maselli said the building still has equipment and asbestos in it, which need to be removed. From a financial point of view, he said it would be safer and more efficient to demolish the building. “Relative to the stacks, I think the jury is out on that right now. We’re working with the Morro Bay City Council and the mayor. If there’s a reason to keep them, that’s one thing. We at Vistra would rather take them down, but we don’t live in the community and we’re open to community involvement,” he said. If approved, this would be Vistra’s third battery plant in California. The other two are in Oakland and Moss Landing. ∆ —Karen Garcia

News BY PETER JOHNSON PHOTO COURTESY OF SLO COUNTY

Investing in recovery SLO County, local cities will receive $85 million from the American Rescue Plan. How will they spend it?

A

“once-in-a-generation” financial windfall is coming to San Luis Obispo County courtesy of the American Rescue Plan. The $1.9 trillion federal stimulus bill, signed into law on March 11, allocated $130 billion in direct aid to local governments, and SLO County and its seven cities are in line to receive $85 million. More than half of that, $54.9 million, will go to the county. For context, that’s close to 10 percent of the entire county budget in 2020-21. The Rescue Plan payments will come in two installments in 2021 and 2022, and must be spent by the end of 2024. Andrew Hackleman, vice president of regional economic think tank REACH Central Coast, called the relief funds “the type of opportunity for investment that won’t come up again in our lifetimes more than likely.” “Really, this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in the community,” Hackleman said. But for the communities receiving the funds, the decisions ahead are tricky. As SLO County 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton put it, “it’s not just an open door” to the funds. Questions remain about how exactly the money can be used, and what kind of process should determine where the investments get made. “We’re not clear on it yet. We’re getting clarification on how we can spend the money,” Compton told New Times. “I’m already getting a lot of people approaching

me. Diablo Canyon is very generous with the nonprofits and they’ve lost that money [due to the plant’s decommissioning]. Now they’re looking to us.” Discussions at the county level about the Rescue Plan funds are already underway. On March 16, the Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to form a subcommittee—made up of 1st District Supervisor John Peschong and 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson—to help develop spending recommendations. The dissenters in the vote—Compton and 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold—argued that the process should involve all five supervisors. Compton said that $54.9 million was simply “too much money” to go to a subcommittee. “I think it should be done in complete open session,” she said. Gibson told New Times that the intent of the subcommittee will be primarily to “frame the discussion” for the full board “to make sure we understand what we can expect out of this.” “I think some people think it’s more of a free-for-all than it actually is,” Gibson said. “A lot of people think of this as a piñata that’s going to shower candy on us here, but it does have some rules attached to it.” The Rescue Plan set five broad parameters for how cities and counties can use the funds. The money can: cover COVID-19 emergency response expenses; provide aid to households, small businesses, nonprofits, and industries like tourism and hospitality; pay “premium”

‘I think some people think it’s more of a free-for-all than it actually is. A lot of people think of this as a piñata that’s going to shower candy on us here, but it does have some rules attached to it.’ –Bruce Gibson, SLO County 2nd District supervisor

Local officials across the country are seeking clarification from the Biden administration about what those parameters mean in practice, Gibson said. “We need to resolve some of those,” he said. “We figure it will be the latter part of April when we’ll have some more details about that.” Gibson said that “nothing is off the table at this point” as far as how the money could be spent. He cited getting direct aid to unincorporated county residents and businesses, making investments in broadband, boosting support for child care, and stabilizing the county budget. Compton added to the list supporting workforce housing development, creating business and nonprofit grant programs, investing in water infrastructure, and helping struggling county departments like Parks and Recreation. “I don’t expect it all to go to one thing by any means,” Compton said. “I want to hear all interesting options and uses.” While the Board of Supervisors expects to discuss a range of spending options, a chunk of the Rescue Plan funds will likely go toward simply recovering the revenues and services lost during the pandemic. That appears to be the city of SLO’s approach. SLO City Manger Derek Johnson said that the city anticipates having an $8.9 million revenue deficit going into 2021-22 due to pandemicrelated declines in sales tax, transient

occupancy tax, and parks and recreation fees. That dollar value happens to be exactly how much stimulus funding the city was allotted in the Rescue Plan. “The funding will therefore assist in reinstating frozen positions, provide funding for homelessness and housing, and invest in capital projects that had to be defunded due to the revenue shortfall,” Johnson said in a statement. But economic advocates, like Hackleman of REACH, see a bigger opportunity in the stimulus funding than balancing budgets. In partnership with SLO County, REACH is close to finishing a report that he said attempts to measure the local economic impact of the pandemic and identify strategies for moving forward. Hackleman said the report could help inform SLO County on where it should invest its stimulus dollars for maximum effect. “What we don’t want to do is spend this money. We want invest it,” he said. Gibson echoed that sentiment, and noted that the county is at a crossroads over the next few years as it faces the fallout of COVID-19, the impending closure of Diablo Canyon Power Plant, and the looming transition away from offroading at Oceano Dunes. “We need to coalesce these things. That requires vision,” Gibson said. “We need to articulate a vision for what we want this county to accomplish. I think we can build it back better than what it was.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

ORDINANCE NO. 2021-02 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CALIFORNIA VALLEY COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT TO READOPT AND REPUBLISH THE ROAD MAINTENANCE CHARGE FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2021-2022

BY KAREN GARCIA

Water security Cambria’s advanced water treatment facility gets a new name, but the project’s future use is still debated

W

ithin the Cambria community, there are two views of the intended use of the Community Services District’s advanced water treatment facility: Either it’s meant to support future growth, or it serves as insurance in the event of a drought. The facility’s current permit, which is temporary, says it can only run during a stage 3 water shortage emergency. But the district board is in the process of getting a permanent permit, and officials say they initiated another recent name-change discussion to bring the community together after years of debate surrounding the facility’s name and function. On March 11, the board approved renaming the 7-year-old Emergency Water Supply Project, aka the Sustainable Water Facility, to the Water Reclamation Facility—despite a majority of public commenters wanting its name to be changed back to the original name. District staff will give the board a report later in April with a timeline for implementing the name change. During the meeting’s public comment period, resident Crosby Swartz said the facility should be operated only when water shortage emergency conditions have been declared. “For this reason, the facility’s original name—Emergency Water Supply—is the most accurate way to identify the purpose of function,” he said. His wife, Laura Swartz, echoed her husband’s comments and added that when former board President Gail Robinette urged ratepayers to support the Emergency Water Supply Project, Robinette referred to it as an insurance policy. “Insurance policies are purchased for emergencies, hence the name. Don’t use our insurance policy for everyday use,” she said. In a 2016 interview, Robinette told New Times that when the district received the emergency coastal development permit for the Emergency Water Supply Project from SLO County, the first paragraphs of the permit stated that after six months the district needed to seek a permanent permit. The district has been working on getting that permit to this day. The requirement to get an emergency permit—which would eventually need to become permanent—caused a rift between the community and the district board, General Manager John Weigold said. “There’s controversy around how that was done. There are people from one of the active groups in town that argue it was done in a back room and not in the public, it was named the Sustainable Water Facility without being debated,” Weigold said. “So all of that contributed to an issue of trust within the community, that still exists today.” The recent topic of again renaming the facility, he said, was part of an effort to regain trust, establish continued transparency, and bring the community together.

District board President Cindy Steidel said during the March 11 meeting that from her personal perspective, any name the board considers should be neutral in nature—something that would represent its functional performance and that all members of the community can embrace. During the meeting, district board members repeatedly stated that the planned discussion was not about the facility’s project description; however, the conversation consistently reverted back to that. “The bigger issue though, is what are we going to use this thing for,” Weigold said. Weigold joined the district in 2019 and said the board asked him to seek a permanent permit for the facility, which would enable the district to operate “as we see fit.” “Now ‘as we see fit’ depends on the parameters that the board will ultimately give me,” he said. Part of the application for a permanent permit calls for an environmental impact report (EIR); so instead of paying for an entirely new one, Weigold said some information was carried over from the original project’s EIR. That project description assumed that a certain number of additional homes could be supported by the treatment plant over a period of time. “The no-growth group points to that as the ‘aha!’ They view that as more evidence that somebody is going to try to build more homes here,” Weigold said. “I can tell you from my perspective, let’s get the permit to operate it within our control, and then we’ll come up with some rules of when we should operate it.” The Water Reclamation Facility has two goals, Weigold said. The first is to provide water in a drought situation or anytime the water table gets low. He added that the second goal is one that people miss: to provide a barrier underground to prevent saltwater intrusion into the community’s aquifer. “Imagine if saltwater intruded into the main place where we get 80 percent of our water: They would render those underwater wells unusable. And then we have a huge problem,” Weigold said. FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

Rather than allowing that problem to develop, Weigold said he views the facility as an insurance policy to preserve the water supply the community depends on. But that insurance policy has come at a significant price and has hit several bumps in the road since its establishment. According to Weigold’s recent manager’s report, the construction cost of the Water Reclamation Facility is $12.7 million. Of that total, $4.4 million was covered in grant funding and $8.9 million in loan funding. Each year, the district budgets about $1.2 million to run the plant, according to the report—including ongoing maintenance and operations, repayment of the loan, and reserves for two months of operation. The district’s been paying back the loan since February 2015. According to the report, nearly $2.2 million has been paid in principal and $2.1 million in interest. The remaining balance on the facility’s loan is $6.7 million with a final payoff date of August 2034. Over the years, community members have raised concerns about the construction and operations costs and the issue of the facility’s faulty brine pond. The district contracted CDM Smith, a Boston-based construction and engineering firm, to build the water facility. The firm proposed making an evaporation pond to store and dispose of brine and related material generated from the water treatment plant. But a heavy rainstorm in 2017 caused surface water to flood into the pond, and the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board issued a cease and desist order against its use. A year later, the Cambria Community Services District filed a lawsuit against CDM Smith for damages and bad equipment due to faulty work. That lawsuit was settled on Jan. 21, 2021, for nearly $1.8 million, which the district set aside in a savings reserve. The faulty brine pond was decommissioned, and Weigold said the district has no plans to take it apart because that could cost upwards of a million dollars. If and when the plant is operated, he said, the brine waste would just be disposed of somewhere else—at an additional cost. Despite the setback, the district applied for a permanent coastal development permit for the treatment facility in 2020. It’s currently conducting supplemental tests and studies requested by SLO County and the California Coastal Commission, and Weigold said he anticipates that they’ll finish their part of the permit process by the end of 2021. He said he believes the district will probably have a permanent permit by next spring. “That’s not the end of the story. We’ve already been told by some residents that they plan to appeal regardless of what happens,” Weigold said. “And who knows how long that will take.” Δ

very year Central Coast Brewing President and Founder George Peterson throws a big anniversary celebration in his brewery’s parking lot at 1422 Monterey St. And every year since Central Coast Brewing opened 23 years ago, doing so has been a giant pain in the ass. When it comes to serving alcohol and running a business in California, the rules tend to get complicated. But the gist, Peterson said, is that he’s not allowed to serve alcohol in the parking lot outside his brewery or on any of the sidewalks surrounding it under normal circumstances. Customers aren’t allowed to leave the brewery or designated patio area with beers in hand, and Peterson even installed “beer parking” spots at its bar inside, where people can leave their beers for safe keeping while they order from the food trucks and vendors that sometimes set up outside. That’s how it was before the pandemic hit, anyway. After Gov. Gavin Newsom issued his first statewide stay-at-home order in March 2020, prohibiting indoor dining and closing breweries, wineries, and bars that don’t serve food—establishments like CCB’s Monterey Street location—the city of SLO relaxed some of its regulations to allow for outdoor dining parklets and expanded usage of parking lots. Peterson was suddenly allowed to use his parking lot without paying for a one-day permit, putting up fencing, and partnering with a nonprofit like he’d had to in order to host his infamous anniversary parties. So he took advantage of the situation as best he could. On May 5, 2020, Central Coast Brewing hosted its first ever “Outdoor Movie Night” in the parking lot of its Monterey Street brewery. The now recurring event kicks off every Tuesday at around 5 p.m., when CCB’s food truck opens up to serve fresh tacos. Canned beer is available on-site, and a predetermined movie is projected onto a big outdoor screen at dusk. The event started as a kind of replacement for regular operations, but as one of the few remaining ways to get out and see a movie throughout the pandemic, Peterson said it’s become a staple weeknight activity for many SLO residents. “People I think would be bummed if we stopped,” he told New Times. Attendees bring their own chairs, blankets, coats, and settle in for the night. There’s lots of room in the parking lot to spread out, and Peterson said he didn’t have to buy much extra seating or infrastructure to make it work. “We’ve had a really lucky winter outside,” he said. “We’ve only had one rainout for any of our nights and we’ve never had a movie night go down because of weather. We got really close two weeks ago. It rained at like 9:15 p.m.—we just barely got the screen in.” Aside from Tuesday movie nights, CCB’s Monterey location has been closed for pretty much the entire pandemic. The brewery shut its doors over COVID-19 concerns for the first time in March 2020, when SLO County issued an executive order temporarily banning alcohol sales at bars and restaurants in anticipation

of St. Patrick’s Day. After that, Peterson said there was a lot of confusion over which alcohol-serving establishments could continue outdoor operations and what constituted serving food. “So this was sort of easier just to close,” he said. “And it needed some maintenance anyway, it needed a refresh.” He closed his Monterey location for much-needed renovations and started delivering food out of his brewery on Higuera Street, which serves up a pub menu of tacos, fries, burgers, and pizzas. Central Coast Brewing started canning beer more and kegging less (they packed about 860,000 cans this last year compared to 200,000 the year before), and applied for and received some financial assistance. All things considered, the brewery still lost about $883,000 throughout the pandemic. But the CCB team is pushing through it. On March 25, Peterson reopened his Monterey location for outdoor and limited indoor service, unveiling an updated interior with a lot of extra space. There’s even a new space inside for Tuesday movie screenings, when the city’s parking and alcohol ordinances inevitably go back to normal. The cozy brewery was bustling with regulars that evening, and Peterson said he has hope they’ve made it through the worst. “I have a lot of money in the bank from 23 years of being in business for shit like this,” he said. “This is my third recession, this is my third downturn, this is my third Cal Poly implosion. I’ve done this before.”

Opinion Why isn’t there a COVID-19 vaccine waitlist?

I was just informed by the county that I can’t get a vaccine appointment for next week. And then I read your article saying many people don’t show up for their appointments (“SLO County sees increase in no-shows for vaccine appointments,” March 23). How can this be a surprise? Why is there no waiting list? I’m a registered Democrat, but I can understand why people want to recall the corrupt Gov. Gavin Newsom. His no-bid contract with his campaign contributor, Blue Shield, is disgusting. And they don’t seem to be doing such a great job. Steve Key Shell Beach

We have work to do to fight injustice

Remarks on “Good Trouble” by Rick Uhls of United Methodist Church (March 11) are a powerful reminder of the work we (all) face to call out and end racism. Hate in any form is violence, whether it be the injustice of unaffordable housing, poverty, hunger, or any other of myriad manifestations of societal injustice. These are not just words. They point to real suffering of families, children, and parents who struggle every day to make ends meet … through no fault of their own. A survey in this same issue asked those polled if SLO is doing enough for those who are homeless. A shocking 31 percent affirmed “Homelessness will never get solved. We should stop spending money on it.” I wish each of these respondents could spend a week on the streets with $10 in their pocket and nothing else to their name. Do they really think poverty is the result of laziness? This is a very sad statistic about our neighbors. I know that I have been privileged from the gate. I did not grow

up in a ghetto with substandard housing, hunger, crime, and a lack of decent health care. Not everyone is born on third base. Some are not even in the game. People like Pastor Uhls are heroes, models of responsible citizenship. Every one of us can take responsibility to move the ball forward and create some kind of “good trouble” to end the violence of racism and injustice that plagues our community and our nation.

Shut Diablo down now

No, Mr. Henry, the increased maintenance activity at the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant is not a conspiracy by public officials and PG&E (“The year the music died,” March 25). Unit 2 was offline 25 percent of the time during 2020 and has been offline most of 2021 so far because of problems with the stator. While a failed stator would not cause a radioactive release, it would pose dangers to plant workers, and no electricity can be produced without it. Recurring leaks of hydrogen gas caused shutdowns in July and October of 2020. The Dec. 2 closure was necessitated by excessive vibrations and lasted for several weeks. Unit 2 has only run a few days at a time in 2021, largely for purposes of testing whether PG&E has gotten the vibration problem under control. And mind you, the ratepayers were charged nearly $100 million in 2019 to recondition the 30-year-old stator that still does not work reliably. Combine that with the fact that ratepayers are paying overmarket prices for the energy produced at Diablo—$1.25 billion projected by PG&E for 2020—and you begin to wonder about a different conspiracy. Perhaps the California Public Utilities Commission and PG&E are in cahoots to keep this aging plant limping

Stop dangerous drilling!

More than 7 million Californians live within 1 mile of an oil or gas well. Living near oil and gas wells is linked with an increased risk of cancer, asthma, and high-risk pregnancies. Senate Bill 467, the “dangerous drilling bill,” was introduced into the California Legislature by Sens. Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara) and Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). SB 467 bans fracking, acid well stimulation, cyclic steam injection, steam flooding, and other extreme, highly polluting forms of extraction. These methods are currently used in Cat Canyon, endangering the Santa Maria Valley water basin on which more than 100,000 residents rely for drinking water. California is one of the largest oilproducing states in the U.S., yet we have no regulations to protect us from drilling. SB 467 includes a 2,500-foot setback between operations and schools, churches, and community centers. The bill also provides a path for oil workers to transition into oil and gas well remediation jobs. Show your support for SB 467 before April 7. Rachel Altman Santa Barbara

Nuclear power is reliable and clean

“Renewable” energy is probably useful for some small part of our consumption. However, when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine, it is not a solution, and our current level of battery technology will not enable it to do significantly more.

➤ Rhetoric & Reason [14] ➤ Shredder [15]

Letters Even if it could provide sufficient power for everything we do (which it cannot), it would destroy a great deal of our environment. The French have supplied 70 percent of their electrical energy needs for 30 years by the use of clean nuclear energy. We have dozens of ships that are powered by nuclear generators. What possible justification can there be to deprive our society of the energy it requires when such a reliable and nonpolluting source is easily available? John Goodrich San Luis Obispo

Bring back real democracy

What about an Equal Rights Amendment for women? Well, the whole concept seems almost passé today after a big effort in the 1970s failed. One of the obstacles to a 21st century Equal Rights Amendment is that men, especially those in positions of financial and political power, seem to be slipping backward. They like women as servants, not as equals or superiors. But there is an even bigger obstacle. The Constitution, with all its guarantees of democratic equality, is basically only so much paper today. There are huge swaths of foundational language that have been trashed by presidents, congresses, and the courts. Today, our pretend Constitution effectively allows any political thug to do whatever he can get away with. And you, Ms. America, don’t give a damn. Besides, how are you going to get equal pay or equal power in today’s speedily declining America? Remember when Rome went from a democracy to a monarchy? That didn’t help women. Rome’s emperors forevermore were men. Ladies, if you want real power, you must bring back real democracy. Kimball Shinkoskey Woods Cross, Utah

MAY 1

2021

s historic moments go on the Central Coast, 9 p.m. on March 18, 2021, and the 10 minutes or so leading up to it, will always be hard to beat. That’s when it began to dawn on hundreds of people who had hung on to the end of that day’s marathon meeting of the California Coastal Commission that the commissioners were really, finally going to do it: The shutdown of off-road vehicle activity at the Oceano Dunes had clearly gone from a question of “if” to a question of “when.” Throughout the day, the cracks had been appearing in the old regime. The good burghers of Pismo Beach and the South County chambers of commerce popped up to intone once again that no more dune buggies would mean economic ruin, still citing the 2017 “economic impact analysis” commissioned by State Parks, which the Coastal Commission knew had been thoroughly discredited. The off-roaders’ main local lobby group did its constituents no favors with a lastminute 130-page submission in which they proclaimed they didn’t know what environmental justice is or what it had to do with the community of Oceano, and they didn’t care—putting themselves at odds with the Coastal Commission, the governor’s office, the Legislature, and state policy. (A quick primer: Ask yourself who benefits from an activity, and who bears the burden of its impacts.) History does not happen in a vacuum. As most local residents know, you used to be able to drive cars through the surf in Pismo Beach, back when Pismo was a punchline in Bugs Bunny cartoons. Then, in 1974, after losing two vehicle beach ramps to storms, the City Council gave up on the cars-on-the-beach thing. Within two years, the drab little town had become a vacation destination. Less well known: Up until 1971, you used to be able to drive cars on the beach in Morro Bay. The City Council and the State Parks and Recreation Commission halted the practice three years before Pismo followed suit. A city ordinance was passed in November 1970. It was immediately attacked and became the subject of a special election in April of the following year. It survived. The ban became total for both the city beach and state beach when the State Parks Commission quietly ordered the sand spit of Morro Bay State Park closed to vehicles in May 1971. The closure was so quiet that no one knew it had happened until a month later, when Parks Commissioner Ian Macmillan asked for clarification of the minutes of the commission’s May meeting. The State Parks Commission extended the city’s vehicle ban on the beach north of Morro Rock to include closure of the beaches of Morro Bay State Park and Morro Strand State Beach “to protect and preserve the rare ecological and archaeological values there.” At that point, the news finally made the papers. Harold Miossi, president of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club, said, “The ban was well debated before the sand spit closure. It’s the result of the public pulse, and I’m glad to see that public opinion has been endorsed. The sand spit is highly vulnerable. It’s not a

place just to have fun.” Mr. Miossi, the State Parks Commission, and the city and voters of Morro Bay in 1971, the city of Pismo Beach in 1974, and the California Coastal Commission in 2021, are linked in a historical chain. History doesn’t happen without help. Thanks are due to U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara), and state Sens. Monique Limón (D-Santa Barbara) and John Laird (D-Monterey) for stepping up for the dunes. Special thanks to Sen. Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica), the author of SB 249, the re-authorizing legislation for the state’s OHV law, who made it clear to coastal commissioners that they have the authority to terminate OHV activities to protect the state’s coastal resources. That authority is absolute when it comes to protecting Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas, which is why, in 2019, Coastal Commission staff found that OHV use in the dunes is “not appropriate in this setting in light of the serious issues and constraints identified,” and “there may be other options that would make sense for both State Parks and the public, including updates to [Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area] operations and management that might retain some non-OHV vehicular use, not only based on its designation as a State Vehicular Recreation Area, but also based on the park’s history in providing for and accommodating other forms of vehicular use that don’t have the same level of adverse impact on coastal resources as OHV use.” Two years ago, the Coastal Commission spelled out the future of the dunes: “Street-legal vehicle camping on a limited portion of the beach may be able to provide a unique, lower-cost, overnight coastal camping opportunity that ties into the history of ODSVRA and continues its rich camping tradition, but with a significantly reduced impact on sensitive coastal resources and surrounding communities.” Certain parties may now feel inclined to file lawsuits with the intent of trying to turn back the future. Before they do, they should ask Morro Bay and Pismo Beach if they want to go back to the past. ∆ Andrew Christie is the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club’s director.

The Shredder

NIMBY magic

I

don’t know what’s worse, a bunch of Cambrians in their seventh year of bickering over an expensive alreadybuilt water facility that’s not being used or a bunch of Grover Beachers saying homeless people shouldn’t get to stay at the city park when those same residents pitched a gigantic fit in 2019 over a facility that could have actually provided homeless services. OK, each is annoying and neither is surprising, amirite? I’m in shock that the Cambria Community Services District is still talking about the name of the emergency water facility turned permanent pain in the ass that has yet to provide a single drop of water to residents. Is it an emergency drought facility or one that augments Cambria’s water supply on a regular basis? That, my dear Shredder lovers, depends on who you ask. Resident Crosby Swartz said the facility is for drought emergencies only. And his wife, Laura Swartz agrees, so they are apparently unanimous in that household that nobody else should be able to build in Cambria. Even if someone has owned an empty lot for 20 years, no house for you! Get out of our backyard! It probably would have helped if the CSD didn’t appear to be so shady when it was trying to get the “temporary” permits

DENTAL CARE IMPLANT SPECIAL

for the facility during a drought emergency. That temporary permit eventually needed to become permanent, which is what really pissed the Cambria NIMBYs off. The district, by the way, still doesn’t have that permit. Still! But apparently, a name change could be the magic dust that alters the way Cambria’s residents view the facility! At least District General Manager John Weigold is hopeful—thankfully, he’s also a realist, because let’s be honest, the way the community views the facility is never going to change! Seven years is a long time to argue over something. People get attached, you know? They like the drama, talking behind people’s backs, shaking their fists at public meetings. Being angry is addictive. What are they going to do if it all goes away? We’ll need to build a facility to help them cope with their withdrawal, which they can then oppose and get angry about, starting the cycle all over again. When will it ever end!? But we don’t really need to worry about that, because the controversy over that currently useless facility ain’t going nowhere, no how. So, the CSD made the gigantic decision to rename this facility, again! It was the Emergency Water Supply Project.

for the whole family!

Then it became the Sustainable Water Facility Project. And now (Are you ready for this?) it’s going to be called the Water Reclamation Facility. Problem solved! Maybe they should ask Morro Bay how that name worked out for the city’s currently under-construction Water Reclamation Facility. Drama! “Right idea, wrong location.” Well, that wasn’t the exact slogan used to fight the new facility in Morro Bay, but it was the exact slogan that Grover Beach residents used to battle against the homeless services and affordable housing project proposed for the Hillside Church in 2019. Neighbors just felt like it was a great concept, but didn’t want it in their neighborhood, you know? It’s much better for the church to just be permanently closed and not used for anything. NIMBY, NIMBY, NIMBY! The 5Cities Homeless Coalition, which is one of the only organizations in South County that’s dedicated to helping the area’s homeless population, has been forced to move their winter warming shelter five times in the last five years. NIMBYS took care of that! Executive Director Janna Nichols said shelter services have been a problem in South County for a long time, which the coalition has been trying to address— “but for one reason or another we have not been successful in finding a location.” The closest shelters are in San Luis Obispo or Santa Maria. And when there’s nowhere to go,

homeless populations often turn to public spaces such as Ramona Park, which Grover Beach residents do not like—like at all. Ramona Park, according to Nichols, has long been a space where homeless people have camped out. “Please remove all the drug addicts and homeless people who live there,” resident Savanna Ford wrote in an email to the city. As in, what, Savanna? Put them in garbage bags and haul them to the dump? Grover Beach City Manager Matt Bronson said without a shelter, the city is limited in what it can do about homeless populations taking up residence in its public spaces. The city, he said, often receives complaints about homeless people camping in Ramona Park, especially near the gazebo! Gasp! The gazebo has to go! And the city’s doing exactly that, with plans to demo the gazebo. Maybe that’s the solution for Mitchell Park in San Luis Obispo? The city cleared out homeless camps a few weeks ago due to resident complaints, and guess what? Those tents are popping up again. It must be that gazebo! Let’s get rid of it. Oh wait, apparently homeless people are also attracted to public restrooms. Maybe we should get rid of those, too. While we’re at it, let’s just get rid of public spaces all together. Then the unhoused will truly have nowhere to go and they will just disappear! Like magic. ∆ The Shredder thinks if we get rid of neighborhoods, NIMBYs will disappear.

PHAT AND SASSY Brass Mash continues their monthly dinner show at Liquid Gravity on April 2.

Brass Mash is booked for monthly shows at Liquid Gravity

W

ith its open back patio, food trucks, and killer beer, Liquid Gravity is turning out to be the place to go for live music, and the band to see is Brass Mash, which plays the first Friday of every month, including this Friday, April 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. “We’re playing monthly and spending a good amount of effort trying to make it a great community event,” band leader and trombonist Colin Dean explained. “Of course social distancing, masks, and spaced-out seating is key! Luckily, not only is the Liquid Gravity patio spacious, but management has been great about communicating with guests regarding COVID procedures. Corazon 805 Taco truck is serving tacos on the patio, and the Liquid Gravity beers are incredible! I’m also really excited to expand our merch booth with incredible T-shirts and women’s tops—it helps having some fantastic ladies in the band!” This band is terrific, and its modus operandi is to take two popular songs and weave them together into a well-arranged horn-driven mash-up dance song. “The band is super excited about being able to do these, albeit smaller, events,” Dean added. “There was disappointment because summer of 2020 was supposed to be our biggest summer ever. We had some fantastic shows lined up and some big surprises for people. A small reminder that Brass Mash released our video album Hard Brass about 90 days before the world shut down due to COVID-19. All the videos are still up on YouTube and are a fantastic reminder of the ‘before times.’” It’s easy to find the band’s YouTube channel by searching their name, and the videos are killer. Still, there’s nothing like seeing them live. They’ve got mad energy. “Needless to say, we are getting back into

it!” Dean noted. “Quarantine has afforded me time to do an insane amount of writing for the band, some major technical upgrades, and so I think our best shows are yet to come. At our last rehearsal, we spread out in an outdoor area and are sounding better than ever! I hope the COVID numbers keep moving in the right direction. I guess I’m hoping people mask up and keep it cool so that we can have these types of shows. Given the last year, I feel even these small dinner events are fragile and they could almost disappear at any time if things get suddenly worse. Here’s hoping.”

More music …

Also on Friday, April 2, you can see excellent local reggae act Resination at SLO Brew Rock (6:30 to 9:30 p.m.). “Reggae Friday at The Rock is excited to welcome back local legend Resination,” announced the brewery. “Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last 20 years, you know how much fun a Resi show is, and this will be no exception!” Do you remember roller skate parties and getting down to some sweet music? Well, The SLORoll has you covered. “We focus on free, family-friendly rolling entertainment!” said Shauna Gustuson. “We feature 805’s hottest DJ Brotha C and have a few local pop-up vendors who come out to our events. We roll on the first Saturday of every month, and our mission is to bring more multi-use public spaces to

SLO County. We have our work cut out for us, to say the least. We’re currently jumping the hurdles to become a nonprofit to further our mission. ‘Aries Astro Roll’ happens this Saturday, April 3, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Santa Rosa Park in SLO. Expect party lights, rink vibes, and social distancing! The SLORoll is dedicated to true roller rink vibes and culture in the Central Coast.” Bliss Café (778 Higuera St., suite D) and Vince Cimo will host Silent Disco this Saturday, April 3, at 9 p.m. Masks and social distancing required. “It’s time to resurrect our arts community in a safe way,” Cimo said. “Silent Disco provides the opportunity to safely distance but groove together. This silent but amazing experience will feature DJs from SubSessions, as well as numerous visual artists, delicious drinks, and good vibes all around.” A $10 headphones rental fee to cover the cost of the silent disco system is required. To reserve your spot, Venmo Cimo @vince-cimo with the message “Bliss Silent Disco.” “The Silent Disco headphone system has a long range, meaning we’ll have the entire Creek and Mission area to roam in,” Cimo added. “This also means we need an ID or unexpired credit card to hold as a deposit while you’re dancing to ensure we get the headphones back.

Cal Poly Student Opera Theatre presents a virtual duet compilation

On Saturday, April 10, the Cal Poly Student Opera Theatre will present a virtual compilation of 17 students performing duets from various musicals. The event will start streaming at 7:30 p.m. and is part of Cal Poly’s 28th annual Open House programming (which takes place virtually, Thursday, April 8, through Saturday, April 10). The participating students of this duet collection collaborated with one another remotely, through extensive virtual rehearsals online. Viewers can expect to enjoy iterations of “Anything You Can Do” (from Annie Get Your Gun), “The Rain In Spain” (from My Fair Lady), “If I Loved You” (from Carousel), and “All er Nuthin’” (from Oklahoma!). “Viewers will see two students perform on-screen at once, masterfully gesturing and interacting with one another while miles apart,” Amy Goymerac, the show’s producer and director, said in a release from the Cal Poly Student Opera Theatre. Paul Woodring, a faculty and staff member of the Cal Poly Music Department, provided piano accompaniment to each duet, while fellow faculty member Dave Becker mixed and mastered the recorded performances. Tickets to view the event are $5 each and can be purchased online at pacslo.org or by phone at (805) 756-4849. Ticket holders will receive a link and password to the program via email the morning of the event. Call (805) 756-2406 or email music@calpoly.edu for additional details.

Wildling Museum hosts Zoom talk with Chuck Graham, author of Carrizo Plain: Where the Mountains Meet the Grasslands

On Wednesday, April 14, the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature will host its next virtual program via Zoom, Chuck Graham: Hidden Wonders of the Carrizo Plain, from 4 to 5 p.m. A local photographer and author, Graham recently released his new book, Carrizo Plain: Where the Mountains Meet the Grasslands. During the Zoom program, Graham will discuss the book and share some of his experiences as an avid photographer of the Carrizo Plain National Monument over the past 15 years. “As a photographer, there isn’t a bad time for me to visit [the Carrizo Plain]. It doesn’t always have to be about the super bloom phenomena,” Graham said in press materials from the Wildling Museum. “I’ve never returned to the grasslands without at least a few quality images.” The suggested donation to view Graham’s virtual program via Zoom is $5.

Shot primarily in Santa Maria, a new feature-length film, Coast, premieres at Santa Barbara film festival

“I

wrote this script 10 years ago. It’s strange to have to talk about it now, since so much time has passed,” Cindy Kitagawa said, referring to her screenplay for Coast, a locally produced, feature-length film. “It was the first script I ever wrote, and I did years of rewrites all while we worked to try and get it made.” Shooting didn’t begin until 2018, and roughly three years later, Coast is finally set to premiere on Thursday, April 8, as part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF). In the film industry, it’s fairly uncommon for screenwriters to be on set during a film’s production. This was not the case for Kitagawa, which she feels fortunate about. “I was on set working with the cast and crew during the entire production,” Kitagawa said. “I worked side by side with the directors [Jessica Hester and Derek Schweickart] until the very end. They often asked my opinion and wanted me to be part of it all, which I think is a rare opportunity for most screenwriters. So I feel very lucky.” Kitagawa was born and raised in Santa Maria—where most of the film was shot (other cities along the Central Coast include Avila Beach, Grover Beach, and Guadalupe)—and based some aspects of Coast on her own experiences growing up there. The protagonist, Abby (played by Fatima Ptacek, Dora the Explorer, Before I Disappear), is a 16-year-old who feels “desperate to escape the trappings of her small, coastal farming town,” as described in the film’s synopsis. “The story itself is not auto-biographical,” Kitagawa said. “But the places we hung out, the things we did, the friendships that are your whole life, and that unexplainable angsty feeling you have when you’re young. That’s all in the script. That part was definitely me.” During the course of the film, Abby falls for the lead singer of a touring rock band and must decide whether or not she wants to leave with him, leaving her family, friends, and hometown behind. The film’s official tagline is: “Let the

lya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry) directs this script by Derek Kolstad (John Wick) about seemingly mildmannered family man Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk), whose life is in a comfortable rut. Then one night two house invaders rob his family’s home, imperiling his wife Becca (Connie Nielsen); son, Blake (Gage Munroe); and young daughter, Abby (Paisley Cadorath). Despite having the drop on one of the burglars, he lets them escape, bringing him shame. He was willing to let it go, but then he realized the thieves made off with Abby’s kitty cat bracelet, and something inside him snaps, spurring him to draw on a secret past to seek justice. (92 min.)

Glen This is pure male fantasy treading well-worn ground, but damn if it isn’t a blast of energized mayhem! Hutch is a nobody with a dead-end job with his wife’s father’s business. His son thinks he’s a coward, his wife is distant, and he gets no respect. However, like Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) from Taken (2008), Hutch has a “very particular skill set,” and like John Wick (Keanu Reeves) from the John Wick franchise, he’s willing to come out of retirement and release his long-simmering anger to right an injustice. His return takes an unexpected turn when he inadvertently runs afoul of Russian mobster, Yulian Kuznetsov (Aleksey Serebryakov), a flamboyant psychopath who sends his goons to Hutch’s house to attack him and his family. Bad idea, Yulian! Action-packed, laugh-out-loud funny, and with a brilliant comic turn by Christopher Lloyd as Hutch’s ex-cop dad, David, Nobody is pure escapism. Odenkirk? Absolutely brilliant! He comes off as wholly unassuming, but when the punches and bullets fly, he’s transformed into a credible action star! There’s a sequel teed up here, and if they build it, I will come. Anna Odenkirk is great in everything, and Nobody is no different. This is so clearly designed to sell to every middleaged man with a vigilante justice fantasy, but as someone with none of those characteristics, I can say with confidence this is fun for everyone. Do I love that

It’s much more delicious, twisty-turny, and surprising that way. The old adage of “hurt people hurt people” is in full force here. Cassie is damaged and sad but also angry and reckless enough to make hell, consequences be damned. This film and Mulligan are worth all the hype they’ve been getting.

arah Chalke and Katherine Heigl play gal pals Kate and Tully, who met as teens when Tully moved to town and the two became instant friends, a friendship that has endured into their 40s. Tully is a wildly famous talk show star; Kate is an editor whose career has taken a backseat to motherhood. She’s splitting with her husband, Johnny (Ben Lawson), who intends to head into a war zone as a correspondent; her 14-year-old daughter, Marah (Yael Yurman), can’t stand her in that horribly cutting teenage way; and she’s got a big gap on her resume.

Adventures in meat Morro Bay just got what every city needs— a butcher shop Order up

M

orro Bay Butcher and Deli aims to bring customers meat that’s as local as possible and handled as little as possible. Butcher Geoff Montgomery, who opened the butcher shop and deli in December 2020 with his wife, Jillian Montgomery, and their friend, Evan Martz, said his goal is to be 75 percent local in the case by the end of the year. Currently, some of Morro Bay Butcher and Deli’s beef comes from Molnar Cattle LLC out of Cayucos and Rudnick Land and Cattle Co. from the Central Valley. Autonomy Farms out of Bakersfield supplies pasture raised, all natural, antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken. And the butcher shop is currently getting its lamb from New Zealand’s Coastal Lamb. You can also find pork and venison—and look forward to the future, when Geoff plans to bring in some duck. He said the shop is working with an Edna Valley ranch to raise some piglets and is looking to work with suppliers that handle the meat as little as possible between the farm and his butcher shop case. “I think that we’ve become disconnected with our food in a lot of respects, and in my opinion, one of the ways to rekindle that connection is to work with local suppliers and be able to trace the products that I’m selling all the way back to the source,” Geoff said. Molnar Cattle, for instance, does very minimal processing of its beef. He said it’s almost direct-to-consumer. The cattle goes from the ranch to the processing facility to the shop. While Geoff focuses on the meat, his wife Jillian curates the cheese, charcuterie, spice blends, and other local products on hand in the deli portion of the shop while Martz takes care of sandwiches and other deli creations.

MEAT EMERGENCY Geoff and Jillian Montgomery and Evan Martz (left to right) opened the Morro Bay Butcher and Deli in December 2020 to serve local, high quality meat and more to the community. EAT THE PORK Kitchen manager Evan Martz preps some cold pork shoulder sandwiches for the lunch rush.

Pia salami, Central Coast Creamery Goat Gouda, and Stepladder Ragged Point Triple Cream sidle up alongside houseground sausages, roasted fingerling potatoes, and asparagus salad. Regular sandos include pesto chicken, braised beef, and cold pork shoulder. Martz said if Geoff has some leftover tri-tip or tenderloin, they just roast it up and put it in the case for people to buy. “It’s quick and easy, no hassle, and it’s all within the same building,” Martz said. “Everything is fresh, small batch. I try to do it every day to minimize waste and leftovers.” And if they do have leftovers, the butcher and deli donate them to the Morro Bay Lions Club for the Morro Bay Community Dinners the Lions Club hosts once a week, Jillian added. Geoff and Jillian moved to Morro Bay a little more than three years ago after spending 10 years in Jackson, Wyoming, together. Geoff grew up in Jackson and went to Eckerd College in St. Petersburg,

Florida, where he met Jillian, who grew up in Wisconsin and also attended Eckerd. “For me, personally, 30 years of living in a nine-month winter and three-month summer was starting to take its toll, and Jackson was getting to the point where it was no longer the town it was when I was growing up,” Geoff said. “Morro Bay is kind of like Jackson was when I was growing up. … It’s got that community feel that we had lost in Jackson.” Jillian suggested the couple move to Morro Bay because it felt like a place where they could raise a family and be a part of the community. Everybody, she said, has been so welcoming and supportive of them. “I couldn’t imagine opening anywhere else,” she said. “We’ve lived in so many different places that it’s crazy.” Morro Bay, she said, has the best of both worlds, with the ocean on one side and coastal range on the other. Both worked in boutique grocery stores in Jackson. Jillian worked in the front of the house in customer service and brought things like local and statewide cheeses into the store. Geoff managed

a couple of stores that had full butcher shops, breaking down whole animals into the bits and pieces that customers want to buy. The focus was always on high quality, local products, he said. When they moved here, he initially worked for Tesla for about nine months before getting laid off, which made him realize that the corporate life wasn’t for him. So he found his way to the Arroyo Grande Meat Company, where he worked for a couple of years, learning about the area, meat, and gaining more experience with whole animal butchery—until they decided it was time to open a shop of their own. Once they made that decision and found a place, the next step was to make a phone call to Colorado. Martz and Geoff attended high school together in Colorado Springs at Fountain Valley School, and they stayed in touch over the years, catching up at a high school reunion where the Montgomerys talked about the dream they had of moving to Morro Bay and opening up a spot of their own. “And he turned around and said he’d had a really similar idea to do something FLAVOR continued page 24

like that in Colorado,” Geoff said of Martz. “And so I knew he was relatively on the same page as I was when this business was concerned.” Martz also worked in the food industry, managing bars at higher-end steakhouses like MacKenzie’s Chop House in Colorado Springs. He said he would help out in the kitchen whenever he could and his best friend was the head chef. Martz loves to cook and has a constant stream of cooking shows on in his free time. At the time when the Montgomerys made the ask in September 2019, Martz had just helped open up a bar and was between that gig and the next. Geoff said he had a whole speech mapped out for how he was going make the ask and how much time Martz might need to mull over the proposal. “I was immediately like, ‘Yeah, let’s do this, what are we waiting on?’” Martz said he told them. “It all happened in 20 minutes right there on the phone,” Geoff said. “Eleven days later, we drove out [to Steamboat Springs] to pick up a camper, picked up Evan, got back here, and went to work.” Just as they applied for a permit with the city of Morro Bay, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the momentum of forward progress. But the trio was still able to get a lot of the remodeling work done at their spot on Main Street, turning what was once T.K.D. Surf Shop into a butcher and deli. They put some butcher paper over the windows and a sign on the wall and got to work.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Send the secrets you could only tell a stranger. Freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Playwright August Strindberg (18491912) was a maverick innovator who loved to experiment with plot and language. One of his stories takes place in a dream and the hero is the Christ-like daughter of a Vedic god. He once said that he felt “an immense need to become a savage and create a new world.” Given your current astrological potentials, Aries, I suspect that might be an apt motto for you right now. APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. There’s no need for you to become a savage. In fact, it’s better if you don’t. But the coming weeks will definitely be a good time to start creating a new world.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Here are affirmations that will serve you well in the coming days. 1. “I am willing to make mistakes if someone else is willing to learn from them.” 2. “I am grateful that I’m not as judgmental as all the shortsighted, self-righteous people.” 3. “I assume full responsibility for my actions, except those that are someone else’s fault.” 4. “A good scapegoat is as welcome as a solution to the problem.” APRIL FOOL! All the preceding affirmations are total bunk! Don’t you dare use them. Use these instead: 1. “I enjoy taking responsibility for my actions.” 2. “Rather than indulging in the reflex to blame, I turn my attention to fixing the problem.” 3. “No one can make me feel something I don’t want to feel.” 4. “I’m free from believing in the images people have of me.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Who says all Tauruses are gentle, risk-avoidant, sensible, and reliable? Taurus author Mary MacLane (1861-1929), known as the “Wild Woman of Butte, Montana,” authored shocking, scandalous books. In I Await the Devil’s Coming, she testified, “I am not good. I am not virtuous. I am not generous. I am merely a creature of intense passionate feeling. I feel—everything. It is my genius. It burns me like fire.” Can I convince you, Taurus, to make her your role model for the coming weeks? APRIL FOOL! I don’t think you should be EXACTLY like MacLane. Please leave out the part about “I am not good. I am not virtuous. I am not generous,” as well as the “I await the devil’s coming” part. But yes, do be a creature of intensely passionate feeling. Let your feelings be your genius, burning in you like a fire.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Poet Emily Dickinson had a good sense of humor, so she was probably making a wry joke when she wrote, “The lovely flowers embarrass me. They make me regret I am not a bee.” But who knows? Maybe Emily was being a bit sincere, too. In any case, I advise you to make a list of all the things you regret not being—all the qualities and assets you wish you had, but don’t. It’s a favorable time to wallow in remorse. APRIL FOOL! I was totally lying! In fact, I hope you will do the reverse: Engage in an orgy of self-appreciation, celebrating yourself for being exactly who you are.

CANCER @NewTimesSLO #NewTimesSLO

(June 21-July 22): Provocation specialist Lydia Lunch is a singer and poet who’s skilled at generating interesting mischief. She testifies, “My daily existence is a battlecade of extreme fluctuations where chaos clobbers apathy, which beats the s--out of depression which follows irritability which slams into anger which eclipses ecstasy which slips through my fingers far too often.” In the coming weeks, Cancerian, I recommend you adopt her melodramatic approach to living the intense life. APRIL FOOL! I lied. Please don’t be like Lydia Lunch in the near future. On the contrary: Cultivate regal elegance, sovereign poise, and dynamic equanimity.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): According to author Kahlil Gibran, “If we were all to sit in a circle and confess our sins, we would laugh at each other for lack of originality.” But I challenge you Scorpios to refute that theory in the coming days. For the sake of your sanity and health, you need to commit highly original sins—the more, the better. APRIL FOOL! I lied. Save your novel, imaginative sinning for later. The truth is that now is an excellent time to explore the joyous and healthy practice of being extremely virtuous. Imitate author Susan Sontag: “My idolatry: I’ve lusted after goodness. Wanting it here, now, absolutely, increasingly.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The coming months would be a great time to start your own university and then award yourself a Ph.D. in Drugless Healing or Mathematical Reincarnation or Political Metaphysics—or any other subject you’d like to be considered an expert in. Hey, why not give yourself three Ph.D.s and call yourself a professor emeritus? APRIL FOOL! I’m just joking. The coming months will indeed be an extremely favorable time to advance your education, but with real learning, not fake credentials.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): After his Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain committed suicide, Capricorn drummer Dave Grohl was depressed for months. To cheer himself up, he wrote and recorded an album’s worth of songs, playing almost all the instruments himself: drums, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, and vocals. I think you should try a similar spectacularly heroic solo task in the coming weeks. APRIL FOOL! I lied. Here’s my true and actual advice: Now is a time when you should gather all the support and help and cooperation you can possibly garner for an interesting project.

AQUARIUS

(July 23-Aug. 22): In 1692, a Swedish man named Thiess of Kaltenbrun was put on trial for being a werewolf. He claimed to be a noble werewolf, however. He said he regularly went down to hell to do holy combat against the devil. I suggest you make him your inspirational role model in the coming weeks. Be as weird as you need to be in order to fight for what’s good and right. APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. What I really meant to say was: Be as weird as you need to be to fight for what’s good and right, but without turning into a werewolf, zombie, vampire, or other supernatural monster.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Argentine poet Alejandra Pizarnik told her psychoanalyst León Ostrov that if she were going to steal something, it would be “the façade of a certain collapsed house in a little town called Fontenay-aux-Roses [near Paris].” What was so special about this façade? Its windows were made of “magical” lilac-colored glass that was “like a beautiful dream.” In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you, too, to decide what marvel you would steal—and then go steal it! APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. Yes, definitely decide what you would steal—it’s important to give your imagination permission to be outrageous—but don’t actually steal it.

VIRGO

PISCES

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “I want to hear raucous music, to brush against bodies, to drink fiery Benedictine,” wrote author Anais Nin. “Beautiful women and handsome men arouse fierce desires in me. I want to dance. I want drugs. I want to know perverse people, to be intimate with them. I want to bite into life.” All that sounds like perfect counsel for you to consider right now, dear Virgo! APRIL FOOL! I lied. Nin’s exuberant testimony might be an interesting perspective to flirt with—if the COVID-19 virus had been completely tamed. But it hasn’t. So I must instead suggest that you find ways to express this lively, unruly energy in safe and sublimated ways. Awesome Exotic Dancers

SCORPIO

(Feb. 19-March 20): I’ve never understood the appeal of singer-songwriter Morrissey, especially since he began endorsing bigoted far-right politicians. However, I want to recommend that you adopt the attitude he once expressed in a letter to a friend. “It was a terrible blow to hear that you actually worked,” he wrote. “It’s so old-fashioned to work. I’d much rather lounge about the house all day looking fascinating.” Be like that in the coming weeks, Pisces! APRIL FOOL! I lied. In fact, you’d be making a silly mistake to lie around the house looking fascinating. It’s a highly favorable time for you to find ways to work harder and smarter. ∆
