SLO County DA says Paul Flores raped and murdered Kristin Smart

N

PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

early 25 years after Cal Poly student Kristin Smart went missing, SLO County law enforcement agencies arrested Paul Flores, the last person seen with her in 1996, and his father, Ruben Flores, on suspicion of murder and accessory to murder. Smart’s body has yet to be located. On the morning of April 13, Paul, 44, was taken into custody at his residence in San Pedro and Ruben, 80, in Arroyo Grande. At a press conference on April 14, SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow announced that his office was charging Paul with firstdegree murder. Dow alleged that Paul killed Smart while attempting to rape or raping her. The district attorney alleged that Ruben helped conceal Smart’s body after she was murdered. Both father and son are scheduled to be arraigned in San Luis Obispo Superior Court on April 15. “As with any criminal case, our investigation is always ongoing up until the very end. Until the case is resolved. So we want to put out today a request for information from the public,” Dow said. The agency is seeking public assistance in providing any information about this case or other potential crimes believed to have been perpetrated by Paul or Ruben, including assaults or other acts. “Paul Flores was known to frequent bars in the San Pedro area from 2005 to present. Individuals with any information are encouraged to contact San Luis Obispo County Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-7867,” Dow said. In terms of holding the trial in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court, Dow said the court process is designed to pick a fair jury no matter how significant the case is. “It will be a decision at some future point that a judge will have to make if there are requests to move it to a different venue,” he said. Dow and SLO County Sheriff Ian Parkinson

both stated that sealed search warrants served at Ruben’s Arroyo Grande home on March 15 and 16 and April 13 don’t allow either agency to reveal the evidence they discovered that led to the arrests. During a press conference on April 13, Parkinson said that forensic physical evidence was located that the Sheriff’s Office believed to be linked to Smart’s disappearance. Parkinson also credited Arroyo Grande local Chris Lambert’s podcast, ALMOST A QUARTER CENTURY LATER SLO County Sheriff Ian Your Own Backyard, with Parkinson holds a press conference on April 13 to announce the arrests of Paul and Ruben Flores on suspicion of murder and accessory to bringing forward several murder in connection with missing Cal Poly student Kristin Smart.

In respone to the arrests, the Smart family released The statement thanked Parkinson and a statement via the Justice for his department for their professionalism, Kristin Smart Facebook page: compassion, and perseverance and Lambert for “For over 24 years, we have waited for this his “exceptional skills, indefatigable work, and bittersweet day.

While Kristin’s loving spirit will always “The task he and his team accepted was live in our hearts, our life without her hugs, unprecedented in volume and scope, yet they laughs, and smiles is a heartache that never met every setback and challenge with resolve abates. The knowledge that a father and son, and an unequaled commitment to Kristin despite our desperate pleas for help, could have withheld this horrible secret for nearly 25 years, and our family,” the statement read. “Chris, along with four incredible angels (C, J, J, and denying us the chance to lay our daughter to J), balanced Kristin on their shoulders while rest, is an unrelenting and unforgiving pain. lightening our burden and held our hearts and We now put our faith in the justice system and hopes with fierce resolve and commitment. move forward, comforted in the knowledge that There simply are ‘no words’!” Δ Kristin has been held in the hearts of so many and that she has not been forgotten.” —Karen Garcia

SLO codifies ban on tents in parks, will regulate shopping carts

due to activities being obscured from view. “Having spent time at a lot of the parks, but in particular, as does come up, Mitchell Park, it is and has been really at times truly scary,” Mayor Heidi Harmon said, before voting for the amendment. “I recognize that not everyone who’s unsheltered is a certain type of person. And, I think we all have to acknowledge that there are folks that are concerning for families with young kids there. I do feel a responsibility to make sure we’re advocating for the next generation as well. “We get ourselves into a really bad situation, including for the unsheltered folks,” she continued, “by essentially allowing for an encampment to be established in a place like a public park that’s intended to be inclusive for all members of the community.” Homeless advocates opposed the tent ban— calling it discriminatory, punitive, and poorly timed during a public health crisis and recession. Some claimed that the city and county lacked sufficient social services and shelter options for the unhoused, and said that the ordinance violated Martin v. City of Boise, a court ruling that requires cities enforcing camping ordinances to have adequate shelter alternatives.

At an April 13 special meeting, the San Luis Obispo City Council amended its municipal code to explicitly ban the use of tents in public parks and passed a new ordinance regulating shopping carts—both moves that aim to curb the impacts of homelessness, but that opponents say target and punish the unhoused during a pandemic. The City Council voted 4-1 to pass the prohibition on tents at parks. In January, city officials began interpreting existing laws on “encroachment” to include tents—which had proliferated in parks, especially Mitchell Park— issuing three citations thus far. The April 13 amendment codified that interpretation into law, officials told the council. “This isn’t really new material,” City Attorney Christine Dietrick said. “This really is a transparency measure.” Council members, city staff, and police all cited an influx of recent complaints from local residents who said they don’t feel safe in the park with their children due to the presence of tents. Parks officials say the tents disrupt park maintenance, degrade the property, and pose a safety concern

Michelle Mansker, a volunteer with SLO Street Medics, called in from Mitchell Park, where she and some unhoused individuals were listening to the meeting. Mansker reminded the council that two community members recently died while living in Mitchell Park. “I think that we as a city need to meet these folks where they are and actually listen to their needs,” Mansker said. “Many folks report that they’re not being heard. SLO County and SLO city lack diversity in services. There needs to be other options. ... There needs to be more help … more compassion … more empathy.” Frank Kopcinski, an attorney with the California Rural Legal Assistance, said he’s representing several local unhoused individuals. He called the amendment unconstitutional. “In attempting to hide the humanity, clean it up, and sweep it away, you hide the constitutional violations against humans who are just trying to sleep,” Kopcinski said. “The proposed enactment of this amendment as it’s written is discriminatory and unconstitutional.” City leaders countered that the 40 Prado Homeless Services Center located in town has beds available and emphasized that a new NEWS continued page 6

Decision puts valuable United States coins back in circulation – zip codes determine who gets them Unsearched Vault Bags loaded with rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the 1800’s and worth up to 50 times their face value are actually being handed over to residents who find their zip code on the Distribution List below and beat the 48 hour order deadline Who gets the U.S. Gov’t issued coins: Only U.S. residents who find their zip code listed on the Distribution List below are

getting the U.S. Gov’t issued coins. If you find your zip code listed below call: 1-800-868-9527 UV3901 “The vaults at Federated Mint are going empty,” said Mary Ellen Withrow, the emeritus 40th Treasurer of the United States of America. That’s because a decision by Federated Mint to put rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins, some worth up to 50 times their face value, back in circulation means unsearched Vault Bags loaded with U. S. Gov’t issued coins dating back to the 1800’s are now being handed over to U.S. residents who find the first three digits of their zip code listed in today’s publication. “These are not ordinary coins you find in your pocket change. These are rarely seen silver, scarce, collectible and non-circulating U.S. coins dating back to the 1800’s so we won’t be surprised if thousands of U.S. residents claim as many as they can get their hands on. That’s because after the bags were loaded with nearly 3 pounds of U.S. Gov’t issued coins the dates were never searched and the bags were securely sealed. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you search all the coins,” said Withrow. “But don’t thank the Government. As Executive Advisor to Federated Mint, I get paid to inform and educate the general public regarding U.S. coins. Ever since the decision by Federated Mint to put rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins back in circulation, I’m being asked how much are the unsearched Vault Bags worth? The answer is, there’s no way to tell. Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but we do know this. Each unsearched bag weighs nearly 3 pounds and is known to contain rarely seen Morgan Silver Dollars and these coins alone could be worth $40 - $325 in collector value each according to The Official Red Book, a Guide Book of United States Coins. So there’s no telling what you’ll find until you search through all the coins. But you better believe at just $980 these unsearched Vault Bags are a steal, “said Withrow. The only thing U.S. residents who find their zip code printed in today’s publication need to do is call the National Toll-Free Hotline before the 48-hour deadline ends. This is very important. The Vault Bag fee has been set for $1,500 for residents who miss the 48-hour deadline, but for those U.S. residents who beat the 48-hour deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $980 as long as they call the National Toll-Free Hotline before the deadline ends. “Remember this, we cannot stop collectors from buying up all the unsearched bags of coins they can get in this special advertising announcement. And you better believe with each bag being loaded with nearly 3 pounds of U.S. Gov’t issued coins we’re guessing they’re going to go quick,” said Withrow. The phone lines will be ringing off the hook beginning at precisely 8:30am this morning. That’s because each unsearched Vault Bag is loaded with over 100 highly sought after collector coins dating clear back to the 1800’s including iconic Morgan Silver Dollars, a historic Peace Silver Dollar, stunning Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars, the collectible Silver Eisenhower Dollars, spectacular Silver

Liberty Head Half and Quarter Dollars, rarely seen Silver Franklin Half Dollars, high demand President Kennedy Silver Half Dollars, beautiful Silver Standing Liberty Quarter Dollars, American Bicentennial Quarters, rare Liberty V Nickels, one cent Historic Wheat Coins including 1943 “Steel Cents”, one of the beautiful Winged Liberty Head Dimes, scarce Indian Head one cent U.S. coins and the last ever minted Buffalo Nickels. “With all these collectible U.S Gov’t Issued coins up for grabs we’re doing all we can to answer all the calls,” said Withrow. Thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the valuable U.S. Gov’t issued coins. That means U.S. residents who find the first three digits of their zip code listed in today’s publication can claim the unsearched bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. Just be sure to call before the deadline ends 48 hours from today’s publication date. ■

countywide investment in homeless solutions is forthcoming. Councilmember Andy Pease dissented in the vote, siding with advocates who questioned the timing and circumstances around the ban. Along with the tent amendment, the City Council unanimously passed the first reading of a new ordinance to regulate abandoned shopping carts. The policy requires grocery stores to make efforts to secure their shopping carts every night, label them with their store information, and promptly retrieve them when they are found abandoned off-site. The council asked city staff to remove some language that appeared to connect the definition of an “abandoned shopping cart” to someone who’s actively using a shopping cart to store their belongings. Officials said the main purpose of the ordinance is reduce the number of shopping carts littered throughout the city. “We haven’t done a full inventory,” City Manager Derek Johnson said, “but … there have been times where I’ve literally seen hundreds and hundreds of carts. We’ll call the merchant and say, ‘Hey will you please come pick up your carts?’ A lot of them will say, ‘This is the cost of doing business. … The cost of picking up the carts, cleaning the carts, and putting them back into service, I’d rather order a new one.’” Both of the ordinances passed on April 13 will require a second reading before they are fully codified and can be enforced. —Peter Johnson

Past due utility bills pile up throughout SLO County

A number of cities in SLO County are still waiving the penalties and fees normally charged to those who fail to pay their water and sewer utility bills. In some local cities, the past due payments are piling up, and it’s still unclear whether customers will be expected to pay off their debts. Like most cities in the county, Morro Bay City Council voted to waive late fees and suspend service disconnections in 2020 to aid residents struggling financially as a result of COVID-19 shutdowns and safety measures. The city hasn’t issued a late fee since then, according to City Manager Scott Collins, and by the end of March 2021, roughly 353 Morro Bay utility customers had incurred a total of about $246,070 in past due payments. Collins said that dollar amount has declined slowly from its peak of a little less than $400,000 over the last few

months as safety restrictions have been relaxed and businesses have reopened. “The fact that people who had fallen behind are making payments now is a good sign,” Collins told New Times. But it’s still not clear how Morro Bay and other cities like it will recover those lost costs, if at all. While utility customers will not be required to pay back waived late fees, they could at some point be required to pay past due bills. Collins said Morro Bay staff are researching the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act and other legislation that could help cities recover revenue losses without making residents pay their past due bills. While there is a lot of clear effort to help those with unpaid rent and mortgage bills, it’s not entirely clear yet where utility assistance comes into play. But the pandemic isn’t over, Collins said, and while some residents and industries appear to be rebounding, others aren’t. “So we’re trying to be cognizant of that as well,” he said. Paso Robles usually receives around $200,000 in late utility fees each year, according to Administrative Services Director Ryan Cornell. But Paso also waived late fees during the pandemic and continues to do so, leading to a loss of that usual revenue and around $385,000 in past due balances on 642 accounts. San Luis Obispo’s utility customers have racked up around $309,000 worth of late fees since March 2020, according to Utilities Business Manager Jennifer Thompson. The city waived about $52,000 of that total as part of its COVID-19 assistance program, which waives four late charges per customer a year. The rest of that money, Thompson said, will have to be paid back. Prior to the pandemic, the city waived one late fee per customer a year. Thompson said that in pre-COVID times, from March 2019 to 2020, the city charged $250,000 in late fees and waived $22,000. Legislative efforts at the state level could help Californians pay off past due bills, including Senate Bill 222, which would offer payment assistance to low-income water customers. But that remains to be seen. For now, Thompson said the city is hoping to set up payment plans with all its indebted customers. “All late charges incurred since March 2020 will be waived for any customer that sets up a payment plan and pays off their past due balance by Sept. 15, 2021,” she wrote in an email to New Times. “The hope is that the new payment plan program will help customers catch up on past due balances.” —Kasey Bubnash

Paso Unified approved its ethnic studies course offering with more contingencies

Two meetings and two sets of amendments later, the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District voted 6-1 to offer “Ethnic Studies: Multicultural America” for a one-year pilot that’s subject to review. During the meeting, several trustees continued to cite concerns about the course’s contents and recent community backlash. The April 13 ethnic studies course hearing garnered 53 emails—52 in support—and 16 public commenters who spoke in support at the April 13 meeting. Comments came from a mix of students, parents, alumni, community members, and educators. The board failed to approve the course with the amendments it suggested at the March 23 meeting. Those amendments included: incorporating women’s issues into each unit; including a unit on Irish and Jewish immigration to the U.S.; increasing emphasis on the ability of different ethnic groups to overcome obstacles and demonstrate achievement and general progress; and including an overcoming adversity unit to showcase resilience and agency. Trustees Jim Reed, Lance Gannon, Chris Bausch, and Dorian Baker said they weren’t “satisfied” enough with the changes to approve the course presented on April 13. The second round of amendments that lead to the course’s approval included: making it a one-year pilot program subject to review; offering the course to 11th and 12th graders only; and additional course material from authors Thomas Sowell and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Baker said she’s continued to hear from members of the community who are worried that the course focuses on themes of social justice, social responsibility, and social change. Her greatest concern was that the course included information from critical race theory. Critical race theory, coined as “anti-American” by former President Donald Trump, posits that race is a socially constructed category used to oppress and exploit people of color. Paso Robles High School social science teacher Geoffrey Land said he spent about 20 hours a week over six weeks creating the initially proposed course curriculum and subsequently working in the board’s previous amendments. Land assured Baker the elective ethnic studies course, which will also count toward college credit for Cuesta College, does not

include critical race theory. This process, Land told the board, reminded him of his marriage in that “teaching is a public trust that extends beyond the classroom.” “This community conversation we’ve been having for the last month is perhaps like some awkward Thanksgiving dinner table conversations, still an important and necessary part of family and community and education,” he said. Gannon reiterated concerns that he voiced at the board’s March 23 meeting that he’s worried about the safety of the white students in response to this course. “I feel that right now there are probably students at the high school that are scared to even say anything against this course for the reprisals that they will get. I am concerned about their safety going forward, honestly,” Gannon said. He felt the course curriculum is “too much” for ninth graders who have already endured so much in 2020—such as lack of social interaction. “There’s the reflective chapters that we see, the introduction to identities for four weeks. It appears that it should be best left to a professional therapist, this explore themselves and how they fit into society and, you know, reflect on this. It just seems to me a little bit more than a ninth grader should be doing,” he said. Board member Reed, who ultimately voted against approving the course, was upset that “somebody is deciding what ethnicities are more disadvantaged or have a better story” that will be covered in the course. Board member Bausch said that he was unprepared for the “onslaught of editorials and letters, emails from people attacking” the board’s March 23 vote to approve the course with amendments. The four trustees reluctantly came to a consensus after Paso Robles Superintendent Curt Dubost expressed his disappointment that a majority of the board continued to take issue with the course curriculum. “I can’t state strongly enough how important I think it is for you to be responsive to the input that you have received from a teacher who has done an incredible job. Give up spring break to work on this nonstop, has poured his heart and soul into that,” Dubost said. “It almost feels like some of you may be looking for reasons not to look at this, ... and I hope that’s wrong. At some point you just have to say, ‘Let’s try it because we believe in Mr. Land, we believe in the class, and we want these kids to be rewarded for the passion they’ve showed for us.’” —Karen Garcia NEWS continued page 7

County testing sites now allow self-swabbing

If you’re planning to get tested for COVID-19 at one of San Luis Obispo County’s community testing sites in the near future, be prepared to swab your own nose. The county’s state-funded testing sites, which are operated by federal health services provider OptumServe, are converting to a supervised self-swabbing testing model. So instead of having a clinician dig around in your nose with a glorified Q-tip, you’ll have the option to do it yourself—with an employee’s instruction and supervision, of course. Michelle Shoresman, a spokesperson for the SLO County Public Health Department, said the transition started at all OptumServe testing sites earlier this week, a decision that she said was made by the contractor and not the county. “Our understanding was that this change was made to give more flexibility with staffing,” Shoresman wrote in an email to New Times. “As this is a new process, it will probably take a little time for the staff and clients to become comfortable with the new process. However, I suspect it will become more efficient over time.” Shoresman assured New Times that selfswabbed tests are just as accurate as those administered by an on-site employee. Part of the COVID-19 testing process involves checking for human DNA to ensure a sufficient sample was collected. If a person doesn’t collect enough DNA while selfswabbing, Shoresman said the test results

will be labeled as “insufficient” rather than “negative.” Patients who don’t feel comfortable administering the tests themselves will still have the option to have on-site staff swab for them. A March 2020 study led by Optum and UnitedHealth Group Research and Development found self-collected tests to be just as effective as those administered by clinicians. The study, which included nearly 500 patients tested at Optum sites in Washington, found that the self-administered swab tests accurately detected COVID-19 in 90 percent of positive patients, consistent with the accuracy of clinician-administered tests. “The current COVID-19 test regimen requires a trained health care worker to collect samples from deep inside the patient’s nasal cavity,” an Optum press release detailing the study reads. “The patientadministered testing method is significantly less invasive, allowing patients to swab the front part of the nostril and mid-nose.” Cal Poly uses the self-collection testing method for both its ongoing surveillance and symptomatic COVID-19 testing, and has been doing so for “quite a while,” according to Media Relations Director Matt Lazier. Lazier said the university uses self-collected saliva samples for its ongoing surveillance testing of students and employees. In cases where students are actually experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, Lazier said Cal Poly’s Campus Health and Wellbeing center uses self-swab nasal tests. He said most students and employees appear to be more comfortable administering the tests themselves.

“Campus Health and Wellbeing reports that the self swabs empower patients in their own care, are generally more pleasant than the deeper nasopharyngeal swabs, and generally seem to be received and tolerated better by patients,” Lazier said. —Kasey Bubnash

Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause holds up some local shots

On Friday, April 9, a “pop-up” vaccine clinic in Atascadero helped inoculate a few dozen unhoused North County community members for COVID-19. Hosted by the El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO), with assistance from the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast (CHC), the clinic used the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine on ECHO dinner and shower program participants. “We determined with Public Health that Johnson & Johnson would be best for that population, because it’s a one-time only,” ECHO CEO Wendy Lewis told New Times. “We’ve been working super closely with Public Health and CHC to try to figure out the best way to take vaccines to the population we serve.” ECHO had plans to host a second pop-up vaccine clinic in Paso Robles on April 16. But after federal health officials put a nationwide pause on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on April 12 due to extremely rare instances of blood clots, those local shots—and others throughout the county—are now on hold. The SLO County Public Health

Department and major pharmacies like CVS and Rite Aid have suspended their use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until federal guidance greenlights it again. U.S. agencies are investigating whether six cases of blood clots among millions of recipients are tied to their immune response to the vaccine. According to Michelle Shoresman, a public information officer for SLO County Public Health, there have been no known instances of locals having these adverse reactions. Shoresman said the pause won’t slow down the county’s vaccination campaign too much. Only 9 percent of SLO County’s current vaccine supply are Johnson & Johnson doses. About 2,200 of the brand’s shots have been administered at its three clinics to date. SLO County has used the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to inoculate farmworkers and hospitality workers, who officials say can be challenging to schedule a second shot for. CHC has worked with homeless services providers throughout the county, like ECHO, to help vaccinate unhoused residents using Johnson & Johnson. Without that option, it makes reaching that population even more difficult. “In general, it’s a pretty complex thing to find people within the [two-shot] window,” said Janna Nichols, executive director of the Five Cities Homeless Coalition in South County. “We’ve been trying to figure out how best to address this. With the J&J vaccine on pause, that makes it even more problematic. We have to think about a two-shot option.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

Conditional relief Fewer local businesses are receiving a second PPP loan

I

n the two years that Sheila Kearns has owned her boutique chocolate shop on Marsh Street in downtown San Luis Obispo, she’s yet to experience normalcy. When the shop first opened in 2019, construction work on Hotel Cerro next door disrupted foot traffic and business. Then, in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and upended life as we knew it. “There was a one-two punch for us,” Kearns told New Times. “For our first year in business, we were totally blocked by construction vehicles. … During the first lockdown [for COVID-19], there was no one walking around SLO. It was just absolutely dead.” Weathering that two-year storm was made possible in no small part thanks to a $31,000 forgivable loan that the shop received through the federal Payment Protection Program (PPP)—a fund created by the CARES Act to help small businesses and jobs during the pandemic. So when Congress extended the PPP for a “second draw” this year, Kearns naturally applied. That’s when she found out that her unique, topsy-turvy business history was actually going to act as a barrier to more relief. In new eligibility requirements for a second PPP loan, businesses have to demonstrate revenue losses of 25 percent or more between 2019 and 2020 to qualify. The purpose of the rule was to target the PPP relief to businesses most impacted by COVID-19—a response to criticism directed at the first round of PPP for having next to no barriers to entry, which resulted in large and even publicly traded

corporations receiving aid. Since Kearns and her chocolate shop had such a dismal first year of business in 2019 due to the construction, Kearns said she couldn’t prove the year-to-year plunge in revenue that was required. In reality, though, both years were exceptionally bad, Kearns said. “Our first year was so artificially low. … We couldn’t show that 25 percent [loss] in any quarter because of our historicals,” she said. “If we had a normal 2019 and the Cerro Hotel wasn’t here, we may have shown the dips that we needed. “There are no exceptions,” Kearns continued. “Our banks tried. Everybody is getting funded, and we can’t qualify. It’s pretty brutal.” According to Jim Dantona, CEO of the SLO Chamber of Commerce, Kearns isn’t alone. While PPP has helped hundreds of local businesses, nonprofits, and their employees stay afloat during COVID-19, the new parameters for the second draw are causing others, like Kearns’, to fall through the cracks. “That’s where there’s been a little bit of a hang-up,” Dantona said. “Some people are at like a 22.8 percent revenue decline—within a percentage or two, and yet, not being able to qualify. Twentythree percent is just as bad [as 25 percent].” For that reason and others, far fewer businesses overall are participating in the second round of PPP than the first round, according to Janet Silveria, president of the Community Bank of Santa Maria. Under the federal program, banks like Silveria’s are administering the loans, while the Small Business Administration (SBA) funds them and oversees eligibility. According to the SBA, the PPP fund has about $68 billion remaining in it, with a final application deadline of May 31. In all, the SBA has handed out nearly 4 million PPP loans worth about $224 billion across the country. In recent conversations with other local bank CEOs, Silveria said that the estimated

In new eligibility requirements for a second PPP loan, businesses have to demonstrate revenue losses of 25 percent or more between 2019 and 2020 to qualify.

DENIED AID Some businesses, like Sheila Kearns’ Chocolate & Confections in downtown SLO, are missing out on a second Payment Protection Program (PPP) loan due to its new eligibility rules.

number of second round PPP loans is sitting at between 30 and 50 percent of the number of total first round loans. It’s difficult to parse the reasons for that, Silveria said. In some cases, businesses and nonprofits have successfully navigated the pandemic and don’t need the assistance now. Some likely went out of business during the past year. Others did not qualify under the new eligibility rules when they perhaps deserved to. One issue that Dantona pointed out about the revenue yardstick is that it doesn’t consider costs. For some organizations, costs rose substantially during the pandemic—whether to pivot their business models or to pay for COVID-19 expenses, like personal protective equipment. “Your revenues may be 22 percent [lower], but if your costs go up 10 percent. That’s a 32-point swing,” Dantona said. While he understood why the federal government added the eligibility requirements to target the PPP aid, Dantona said that the one-size-fits-all approach simply can’t account for all situations and circumstances.

“Trying to make a rule that satisfies 50 states and 50 economies—how do you balance that piece?” Dantona said. “A lot was made of who they gave that first round of PPP to, versus the small guy, so you can see why they were trying to do that. But as with most governmental things, they’re like, ‘If it’s not 25 percent, we can’t do anything. That’s our rule.’ I get why it’s like that, but it’s also the hardest thing for small businesses, if it doesn’t make any sense.” For Kearns, missing out on a second PPP loan likely means she’ll be forced to take out a loan with interest to keep her business alive. The third-generation chocolatier said she’s committed to doing so, and has never considered closing down. “It was very difficult from the day we opened our doors but no, I don’t give up that easily,” Kearns said. “As far as being able to grow and be financially strong, it just puts us in a position where we are looking at borrowing, and it’s just a shame.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

MARKETING Educational representation & SALES A proposed ethnic studies course in Paso Robles COORDINATOR sparks a larger conversation about diversity BY KAREN GARCIA

and healing on the district’s campuses

W

hen Susana López reflected on the March 23 Paso Robles Joint Unified School District board meeting, she said it was painful for many reasons. That evening, an ethnic studies course—“Ethnic Studies: Multicultural America”—was proposed as an elective for Paso Robles High School students in the fall. Community members and students submitted emails ahead of the meeting and spoke during public comment in support of the proposed course. Ahead of the meeting, board member Dorian Baker called the proposed course “poison” in a now-deleted Facebook post on her personal page. During the meeting, board member Lance Gannon said he was concerned that “students who elect to take this class are going to look at the white students differently.” The board approved the ethnic studies course, but amended the curriculum to ensure it was “balanced” and reviewed the course at its April 13 meeting, where it made additional amendments and limited the course to 11th and 12th graders. The board ultimately approved the course as a one-year pilot. (Read more about the meeting on page 6.) “I really felt as a person of color, a Latina, hearing [the board] really focus on the ethnocentric piece of it and how important it was to make sure that white people were not seen as bad. Or the focus on ‘balance’ because it didn’t include enough white experiences when we know the white experience is the default in our curriculum and it is the default in the United States was difficult,” López said.

With that information, DEI concluded that racism is an issue. Its next step was to figure out how to support its students. “As an educator myself, I see the benefit of teaching students about different cultures, different groups of people, and really increasing their empathy with one another,” she said. López and the other DEI members believed if all students understood their cultural histories and how those are woven into the country’s fabric, maybe the course could also help heal the racial tensions. Paso Robles High School social studies teacher Geoffrey Land kept those intentions in mind as he helped create the ethnic studies course curriculum, which he will teach, if approved. It took three months to vet the course, looking at ethnic studies curricula across the state and having the contents reviewed by his department, administration, and a curriculum review committee. His initial course proposal, Land said, would have enhanced students’ appreciation of the lived experiences of African, Native, Asian, and Latino Americans. “But also the nature of marginalization, how certain groups have been excluded from the American dream or how they’ve faced barriers and how they’ve responded to those barriers with resilience, agency, creativity, and courage,” he said. For example, Land planned to talk about Fred Korematsu, an American civil rights activist who objected to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War ll. Land said Korematsu’s case went to the Supreme Court. He lost, and a generation of Japanese Americans on the West Coast were interned. This action also led, he said, to this incredibly courageous Japanese American infantry regiment that was the most decorated in World War ll. “I would hope to reveal the complexity of American experiences and tell stories that haven’t been included in either literature or history classes,” he said. “The hope was that students of Paso High would be able to perhaps for the first time see themselves in the curriculum in a way that would be empowering and inspiring, encourage them to learn more, feel better about their own story, and more courageous about their own journey.” In the early ’90s, an Asian American English teacher started an ethnic studies course in literature to expose students to writings outside of the dominant paradigm of mostly white European authors. When she left the school, Stan Cooper reintroduced the course with an emphasis on social science and taught it for 10 years before he retired. During Land’s 22-year career with the high school, he said he’s learned of and witnessed various racist incidents. In 2017, high school students participated in A Day Without

Ahead of the meeting, board member Dorian Baker called the proposed course ‘poison’ in a now-deleted Facebook post on her personal page. Although everyone knew it was going to be a difficult task, López said she didn’t expect the board of trustees to interpret the proposed course as “anti-white.” “This is a course that is trying to represent the diversity that exists on their campuses,” López said. López is a licensed clinical psychologist, co-founder of the Resilience Psychologist Collaborative, a lecturer at Cal Poly, and a Paso Robles High School alumna. She calls herself a Bearcat, after the school mascot. In June 2020, she added co-chair of the Paso Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to that list of roles. The committee—made up of 12 community members, alumni, students, and Paso Robles Joint Unified faculty and admin—is a subset of the city of Paso Robles’ diversity task force. Established specifically for Paso Robles High School students who said they had experienced racism and microaggression on campus, López said the committee surveyed teachers about racism on campus and created a video in which students of color talked about those experiences and how it impacted them.

Immigrants, the nationwide protest and boycott to demonstrate the importance of immigration and protest former President Donald Trump’s plans to build a border wall and potentially deport millions of undocumented immigrants. Land said some community members called for the students who participated to be expelled, and he was investigated because students made protest signs in his classroom. “These are demographic growing pains that many communities experience. We like to believe that everyone is open, welcoming, empathetic, and wants to know their neighbors better, but that’s not always the case. We’ve seen that at the high school, which is just a microcosm of the community,” he said. He rewrote the curriculum at the board’s behest. Land said he believes the elected board sees itself as representing the community of Paso. Paso High junior Mel Gonzalez said that she doesn’t feel board members represent the student body or want to listen to students. Gonzalez played on the high school’s softball team with three other Mexican American students, and the rest of the girls were white. During practice, the team would listen to music, and the girls took turns choosing songs. Many were country music, and Gonalez’s teammate wanted to play cumbia—a Latin America music genre. “It didn’t have too many words in Spanish, cumbia is more instrumental, but one of my teammates said, ‘Oh, we’re in America. We should be speaking English, so I don’t think you should be playing that music,’ ” Gonzalez said. Stunned and annoyed, Gonzalez said she and her other Mexican teammates sat down with the girl and told her she really shouldn’t say things like that, especially to her friends. “Students are required to learn a foreign language, two years of a foreign language in high school. Not to mention Spanish is one of the top languages spoken in the world,” she said. Her former teammate demonstrated the same “close-mindedness,” Gonzalez said, that the board demonstrated on March 23. Gonzalez felt the board walked into the meeting with preconceived ideas without listening to what public commenters like herself had to say. Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Superintendent Curt Dubost told New Times that the board meeting, although awkward and difficult, was part of a healthy democratic process. “I remain Pollyannish perhaps about this,” he said. “But I hope what comes out of this is a broader consensus on not what everybody wanted—but a consensus that people can rally around.” Dubost believes the board didn’t overstep during that March meeting and applauds the teachers and students who rallied behind the course. He added that he supported the curriculum as it was constructed. New Times reached out to school board members, and trustee Chris Arend cited the Brown Act as a reason not to comment. He urged fellow board members to consider Brown Act implications before responding. ∆ Staff Writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

Hope for survivors

C

asa of Hope is a nonprofit in Santa Maria that’s dedicated to providing safe housing for survivors of sex trafficking, and Executive Director Ellen Torres understands the importance of this resource from personal experience. She survived sex trafficking in Santa Maria when she was a teenager. “When I was 16, my family moved here from Pennsylvania,” Torres said. “I had only been here about a month and a half, and I had traffickers that were following me to and from school every day.” According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, California is one of the largest sites of human trafficking in the nation. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 defines sex trafficking as a commercial sex act that is “induced by force, fraud, of coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age,” the hotline’s website states. Casa of Hope currently operates one safe house that can house up to six people at a time, and Torres said she accepts survivors regardless of the location they’re coming from. She hopes to open more shelters in the coming years. “We’d like to have a transitional house following this one, and then maybe something similar to independent-living style after that,” Torres said. “It takes a lot more than that to really instill behaviors and teach those new behaviors, and really provide opportunities to use those behaviors.” Torres said Casa of Hope is guided by the RED letter edition, which stands for revelation, education, and dedication. “One of the things that I’m seeing that’s missing from some of the other safe houses throughout California or their programs is really teaching about human trafficking and educating them,” Torres said. “You’ll have girls come in and they don’t even know that that’s what’s happened to them.” For Torres, revelation is about showing survivors the coercive, forceful, and fraudulent nature of the trafficking they’ve experienced. The education piece means giving safe house occupants the opportunity to finish their high school diploma, work toward a GED, or attend college. “This opportunity doesn’t come around all the time, that you have a place where you can stay, you don’t have to worry about anything, everything is provided for you,” Torres said. “So why not take advantage of that and advance your education?” Finally, the dedication aspect is about “committing and following through with your goals, whatever it is in life that you want to do,” Torres said. For San Luis Obispo County survivors, RISE SLO offers support and serves as a referral point to other resources. “That type of survivor historically has accessed our shelter resource,” RISE Associate Director Susan Lamont said. “[We] house them, just so that they’re safe and can get their feet under them, and then assist them to look for another organization that only specializes in sex trafficking [survivors].” All trauma is unique, Lamont said, and the trauma that sex trafficking survivors experience requires nuanced

and specialized support. “There’s sometimes problems with integrating into a community living setting,” Lamont said. “There’s still a lot of very valid fear around strangers … and so it’s just this very, very high alert that they’re on.” Lamont said she appreciates local legislators like Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham for the work he does to combat human trafficking. Cunningham, who represents SLO County and Northern Santa Barbara County, has called the issue one of his top priorities and authored multiple pieces of antihuman-trafficking legislation. “I do think that it’s a problem everywhere, but I think that this particular area is a pretty high traffic area for it,” Casa of Hope Executive Director Torres said. “I want people to be educated in human trafficking so that they see the signs.”

Opinion Achieving sound public policy

The blatant and misleading political hit published in this paper last week deserves response (“Something to remember,” April 8). (The letter writer, it should be noted, is the chair of the San Luis Obispo Democratic Party, and perhaps let partisan bias seep into a false narrative.) Since day one, our office has taken the COVID-19 pandemic seriously, and worked tirelessly to mitigate the impacts it has had on our health, businesses, mental health, and children. I am proud of the work we’ve done to help Central Coast residents deal with COVID over the past year. Here are some of the facts: • Since the beginning of the pandemic, our office has helped thousands of local residents secure their unemployment benefits through the broken Employment Development Department. • At the earliest stages of the pandemic, we were able to find critical medical supplies, including ventilators and elastic bands for masks, assisting our local logistics and supply experts. • Over the course of the past year, we’ve worked tirelessly with local, state, and federal elected leaders from both sides of the aisle to fight for additional resources like testing capacity and vaccine supply. However, I have not shied away from standing up on behalf of our community when illogical public health edicts are dictated from Sacramento. That is an important part of my job as this community’s representative in the legislative branch. For example, we spoke forcefully against the governor’s initial decision to close beaches statewide over the summer. We spoke forcefully against the governor’s unscientific decision to close outdoor dining, as well as when he linked San Luis Obispo County with Southern California counties in December for a shutdown order.

HODIN

We spoke forcefully when schools remained closed to in-person instruction, months after the CDC said it was safe to get kids back into class. We spoke forcefully when the state failed to allow youth sports to resume safely, even after more than 40 other states had allowed it. Fortunately, we do not live in an authoritarian society where we are expected to unquestioningly comply with directives from a central authority. As Americans, we have the freedom—and the obligation—to speak up, to question authority, and to insist that government mandates be backed by actual science and in accord with fundamental constitutional rights. That is an indispensable component of a healthy democracy and the best way to make sound public policy. Jordan Cunningham Assembly member San Luis Obispo

Recognition of effort and improvement isn’t all bad

I agree with some, but not all, of the sentiments expressed by John Donegan in “Participation trophies” (April 8). I don’t like the idea of mindlessly handing out trophies to one and all. On the other hand, I recall that when my oldest son was 9 years old and played an entire season of Little League baseball without winning a single game, the coach got all the kids and parents together for an end of year pizza party and handed out cheap little trophies to every kid. He managed to find something positive to say about every kid. The kids had worked reasonably hard with little to show for it, and my take then and now was that the little award ceremony showed them that their efforts and accomplishments were significant and noticed, even though they may not have shown up on the scoreboard.

Russell Hodin

When my son was 12, the team, with many of the same players, won their league championship. Was it because of the award ceremony (which was repeated every year)? Probably not, but who knows? In any case, I loved it. I would have been fine without the trophies, but I liked the recognition of effort and improvement. Certainly, I would not want to be treated by a doctor who failed his classes, but this seems like a straw man, since nobody is suggesting this kind approach. I get the argument that maybe too much importance is attached to “self-esteem” at times, but that doesn’t mean that kids who struggle should be kicked to the curb. When I was growing up, not everybody made the team, even in recreational leagues. Kids who were small, unathletic, or inexperienced often got no chance to play on organized teams. Today, any kid who is willing to try can usually find a place to play and learn. I can relate to Donegan regarding his guitar. I have been playing for years without the benefit of a lot of talent, but I enjoy it, and I plan to keep doing it. Every now and then I find a willing (or maybe just polite) listener and/or somebody else to play with, both of which add to my enjoyment. I also play golf badly, and thanks to the handicap system, I occasionally win. At this point I don’t need any trophies, but for 9-year-old kids, maybe they help to motivate them to keep trying. If so, I’m good with that. Bob Dignan SLO

Roosters on steroids

Imagine that a new neighbor moves in with an obnoxious rooster that crows night and day without stop. Now imagine that your neighbor moves in with 40 obnoxious roosters with the intent to breed more of them. Well folks, it turns out there is an

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

Letters animal louder than a rooster and it’s called a gibbon. It’s an ape that looks like a small monkey. They are the loudest animals on planet Earth! They greet the sun each day and begin to howl. This continues throughout the day and night. Gibbons earned the designation of the loudest animal on the planet for good reason: Their communication takes place at 100 decibels, far exceeding the SLO County rural sound ordinances of 64 decibels. These animals are like roosters on steroids. The sound of their call can travel 2 miles or more, which would affect an area of 12.5 square miles. Given how sound travels through our canyons and valleys, I would predict that an even larger area will be affected. This species is not native to our area. They are sensitive and require a tropical climate. In an attempt to re-create this, the caretakers must provide constant misting throughout the scorching summer months (described as one of the downfalls of their existing location, see their website for relocation funds). The well on the proposed location on Parkhill Road in Santa Margarita has always underperformed and will likely drain this precious resource from surrounding properties connected by a common aquifer. These creatures need access to the forest canopy. Gibbons have the ability to leap 50 feet in the air. Their caretakers currently house them in 20- to 25-foot high chain-link cages with random tree branches and logs for them to swing and perch on. The enclosures are essentially glorified bird cages (see YouTube videos of the Gibbon Center). Gibbons live for 40 to 50 years in captivity. When bred in captivity as these animals are, they can never be released in the wild. They deserve a proper habitat in an official zoo and should not be bred for use in an exotic animal roadside attraction. Laura Hobbs Santa Margarita

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY QUINN BRADY

Undemocratic process

T

he modern filibuster is the greatest impediment to progress our nation faces. Rooted in decades of racism, the filibuster is a longstanding tool of white supremacy that has been perverted and abused to uphold systems of oppression. Today, without stepping foot into the Senate, a single senator can write an email stating they intend to filibuster and hold up critical legislation supported by the majority of the American people, just by hitting send. As a kid, I remember learning about the filibuster in public school as teachers taught the basics of civics and how legislation is passed. My grade school understanding went something like this: When one powerful person does not like the direction of progress, he stands up and talks for hours on end to bring it all to a screeching halt. I’m guessing you were taught something similar. It wasn’t until recently I came to understand the deep roots of oppression that drive the detrimental use of the filibuster. As a surprise to no one, our grade school lessons left out the central organizing principle: racism. As it turns out, filibusters are much more than impassioned speeches. They are a deliberate way to suppress progress. The filibuster, which is not a part of the Constitution, first came into practice in the mid-19th century. With a system of government functioning as the Founding Fathers intended, there was one issue before the Senate that pulled at the heartstrings of the white male leadership so deeply, that the filibuster emerged: The abolition of slavery. Just as there was a shift in public opinion regarding slavery in the United States and the abolitionist movement gained steam, John Calhoun a senator from the South, adamantly defended slave owners and the interests of white Southerners. Calhoun so loved slavery that he often argued it was “a positive good” for slaves themselves and began to stymie all legislation that challenged the institution of slavery. And so the filibuster was born as a tool to block any sign of progress for Black America. For 87 years, as the United States fought for freedom, civil rights bills that came before Congress were met with the obstructionist fury of the Southern filibuster, which was used to impede every path to progress and prevent the federal government from intervening in racial segregation. During those years, it was the only category of legislation in which the filibuster was used to actively thwart bills. And there we learned that a racist senator can speak for hours on end to keep a Black woman from riding the bus. For many years, the filibuster was an extraordinary action only used on specific issues, and it wasn’t until more recently with an increasingly polarized divide between parties that the use of the filibuster became the new normal. America’s first Black president, Barack Obama, met more filibusters aimed to thwart his legislation than in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s combined. Today, any senator who objects to a bill has the power to completely derail its progression through the filibuster. Instead of needing a simple majority of 51 votes, the filibuster creates a need for at least 60 votes to pass almost every single piece of legislation. This

empowers the minority to block the will of voters and the American public. Even if one party holds the House, the Senate, and the White House, the will of the American majority who elected them can’t move forward with the filibuster in place. This is an undemocratic process that our broken democracy continues to uphold. What we have now is a system that no longer works, one where democracy struggles to function, and progress has been rendered nearly impossible. The United States faces major crises demanding urgent legislation on universal health care, climate change, criminal justice, and immigration reforms, housing affordability, living wage, the growing child care crisis, and critical democracy reforms. Today, the filibuster’s racist structure is rearing its ugly head once again as Republicans aim to use it to dismantle the voting rights of millions of Black Americans. Republicans across the country, including right here in San Luis Obispo County, are hard at work to oppress the vote. Republicans are aiming to use their power to make it more difficult to vote, as well as redraw congressional maps in their favor in the 2021 redistricting process, a desperate move to manipulate electoral outcomes heading into the 2022 midterm elections and for years to come. Landmark legislation like the For the People Act (H.R.1/S.1) and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would bring about the most sweeping reform of our electoral laws since the Voting Rights Act of 1965. If passed, the For the People Act would implement nonpartisan redistricting commissions, end gerrymandering, expand voting rights, and enact campaign finance reform, giving us our best shot at meeting these systemic challenges and creating an inclusive path forward. But with the filibuster in play, such legislation will never pass with the narrow majority held by the Democratic Senate. These reforms are not radical. Expanding voting rights benefits everyone and would allow America to build the practical, inclusive democracy that the filibuster has kept us from. If America is to be a democracy at all and a place that works for the people, the filibuster must go. ∆ Quinn Brady (she/her) is a community advocate, organizer and mother on the Central Coast.

Opinion Aggressively white

I

ndoctrinated students, white kids in danger, and someone else pulling the strings. It sounds like a rally for Donald Trump’s next run at emperor in chief, doesn’t it? Sorry to disappoint all you lovers and haters out there, but you’ll need to turn your attention to the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, the most controversial and apparently, paranoid, conspiracy-believing school board in SLO County! At an April 13 meeting, board members expressed those concerns about a proposed elective course designed by a high school teacher who’s taught at the district for more than 20 years. Yes, an elective! A choice. Not a requirement. But, but, it’s a course in—and here’s a trigger warning for all you über conservatives out there—ethnic studies. Gasp! Can I get a round of slow claps for the majority white school board elected by the Paso community and their inability to get away from sounding more than just a little—dare I say—racist? Oh whoops, I mean, aggressively against public education about non-white groups and their history in the American story if it makes white people look, you know, bad. It needs to be more “balanced,” several board members argued in two separate meetings, and incorporate the white perspective. So, what about all of the other classes taught at Paso Robles High School? Do they need to be

MAKEYOURBIKEELECTRIC.COM Electric Bicycle Conversions

(310)-750-5405

more “balanced” and incorporate the nonwhite perspective? Nah! Board member Dorian Baker, who called the course “poison” in a now-deleted Facebook post, was super concerned that the course focused on “themes of social justice, social responsibility, and social change.” “It’s those concepts that are troubling to many of the people that reach out to me,” she said. Oh no! Responsibility, justice, and change. That’s not what America’s about! We are individuals who have bootstraps! We can’t poison our children with truth! We need to teach our students about how little needs to change in America and how exceptional this country is—even if some of its past is a little shady. You know, be more like the North Koreans. That sounds like indoctrination to me. But board members are more worried about Marxism, which Baker said may not be directly named in this ethnic studies curriculum, but “it dresses it up so that it can be taught at the high school level.” Yeah, totally, Baker. Understanding more about America’s complicated history with immigrants and people of color is definitely communist. We should call Joseph McCarthy. He needs to be alerted about the potential for student activism that could come from this course!

The Shredder She even accused the 22-year-veteran social studies teacher who created the curriculum—Geoffrey Land—of not actually developing the course. It must have come from Cal Poly, she surmised. It’s the only thing that makes sense! Fellow board buddy and higher education hater Jim Reed also said “somebody else had some hand in” the course’s creation. “Somebody has decided what ethnicities are more disadvantaged, or, you know, have a better story,” he said. “And to me, this is kind of, it’s dividing ethnicities up rather than celebrating them.” Well, Jimmy, I’ve got to say, policy, data, history, and population sizes really speak for themselves when it comes to deciding what ethnicities America has divided up. We interned Japanese Americans during World War II, for example. Oh, and those were American citizens, too! We enslaved African Americans for hundreds of years. We murdered Native American tribes because we wanted their land. We took a giant swath of land from Mexico in a war and have argued over Mexican American border policies for more than 30 years. You know, little things. Meanwhile, board member Lance Gannon is extremely concerned about student safety, saying “right now there were probably students at the high school that are scared to even say anything against this course for the reprisals that they will get.” Oh. OK. Kind of like the pushback the board got after its March 23 meeting on the ethnic studies course, where members expressed

their initial concerns about the course being a little too ethnic. “Students who elect to take this class are going to look at the white students differently,” Gannon said at the March meeting. I got news for you, Gannon—the students who elect to take this class have already had experiences that cause them to look at certain white students “differently.” They’re the same students who some people demanded get expelled for protesting on their lunch break. The craziest part about the whole conversation is that Paso High School taught an ethnic studies course at least two different times in the past, starting in the 1990s. Meanwhile, board member Chris Arend—yeah, the guy who wrote that opinion piece about how systemic racism is a myth without a trace of irony—was just exasperated with all these people speaking Spanish in their public comments! I guess since he doesn’t speak Spanish, he doesn’t realize that the Paso School District’s Spanish translation of the board meetings is barely audible—a big problem for the majority Latino district with almost 1,500 students classified as English language learners. But he did say: “I’m convinced it’s not going to be a course indoctrinating students to dislike folks of other races or anything like that.” ∆ The Shredder is convinced the board is indoctrinated.

Live music …

Morro Bay’s Dark Nectar Coffee Saloon (2940 Main St.) has a tripleheader of live music coming up this weekend, starting with Deuces Wild on Friday, April 16 (2 to 5 p.m.), playing ’60s and ’70s outlaw country covers and Americana. David Talmage plays on Saturday, April 17 (2 to 5 p.m.), offering originals and covers by John Prine, Paul Simon, Jimmy Buffet, and others. Honky-tonk, surf, psychrockers Murder Hornets play Sunday, April 18 (2 to 5 p.m.). SLO Brew Rock has Pacific Range playing on Friday, April 16, at 6:30 p.m. If you’re a fan of The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, or The Band, you’ll dig them. Truth About Seafood (TAS) plays Saturday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. Do you like bitchin’ rock ’n’ roll played by dudes who wear headbands and shit? This is your band. “I guess they can host 60 people—10 percent of their 600 capacity—in the event center, spaced out seated, and the rest will party outside with the video/ audio production out there,” bassist Brad Daane explained. “The official rules they want to advertise are no dancing, you must stay seated, and masks on when not in your seat.” No dancing at a TAS show? Good luck! The Famous Jazz Artist Series is back for another round at The Harmony Café in Cambria this Sunday, April 18 (5:30 to 7:30 p.m.; $20 admission and $10 minimum food or beverage order; reserve your spot at (805) 935-9007 or charlie@ talsanmusic.com). This week expect Brazilian jazz with Charlie (vibraphone) and Sandi (voice) Shoemake, Rich Severson (guitar), Dylan Johnson (bass), and Darrell Voss (percussion).

New music …

Husband-and-wife folk duo Bob and Wendy’s eight-month project to release a new single every month continues with single No. 2, “Pelicans Fly,” available now on YouTube. “During the lockdown, there were few safe places to go,” chief songwriter Wendy

Liepman said. “Some weekdays, Bob and I would go early to Shell Beach during low tide. While he surf-matted, I took long walks on empty beaches, watching the pelicans fly and the white sea foam spilling upon the shore.” Those moments inspired this imagistic song: “Pelicans fly over waves of alabaster/ Beach is empty everyone’s gone home/ Tide begins to rise I am walking slow then faster/ White chiffon and lace upon the foam/ Time out of time this time is mine/ Time to let troubles unwind/ Wind in my hair ocean air/ Open whatever I find.” I’m loving these gorgeous tunes, and there are six more to go before I can soak in the collection in its entirety. Sweet torture!

Return of Record Swap

It’s been a while since The SLO Record Swap offered a place for vinyl record fiends to indulged their addiction, but starting Sunday, April 18, from 8 a.m. till noon, it will be back every month on the third Sunday in the parking lot behind Traffic Records and The Raconteur Room. In case you didn’t hear, Traffic Records moved from its 400-square-foot shop to a new 1,700 square foot shop at 5850 Traffic Way in Atascadero, next to The Raconteur Room. It’s hosting its grand reopening the day before, on Saturday, April 17 (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.). “The overarching goal here is to really show how vibrant and wonderful our Traffic Way business community is,” Traffic Records’ Manuel Barba said. “We have weathered the storm of 2020 and have emerged healthier and stronger than before. Our block is amazing. Atascadero is an open-container community, so one can legally enjoy libations and beverages on the sidewalk.” Block party, anyone? ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Organic materials flow into sculpted forms that are as personal to the artists as they are to the viewer in CaliforniaAesthic3D

t’s difficult to explain exactly what California’s aesthetic is, but Paso Robles sculptor Ken Wilbanks said you’ll know it when you see it. “I just seems like there’s an artistic freedom here that isn’t really as restricted as some schools in some places,” Ken said. “It’s wide open. It’s not one look.” He explained that contemporary sculpture on the East Coast deals with a lot of hard lines, while art on the West Coast is a little more free form, a little softer, a little rounder. Rather than using material such as marble, many California sculptors instead rely on wood, glass, and steel or found objects. “Even though some of the pieces are quite linear, there seems to be something a lot more earth-centered about them,” Ken said. “We like to say California has a big heart.” The “we” in that statement includes his wife, Stephanie Wilbanks. Together, Ken and Stephanie present a 3D show at Studios on the Park through May 3. The couple invited several Central Coast sculptors to exhibit their work in CaliforniaAesthetic3D, including work from Mecki Heussen, George Jercich, Larry Le Brane, Ron Roundy, Carl Berney, Peter Charles, and Ken. “We already knew the work of these sculptors,” Stephanie said. “We didn’t even have to ask them. We already knew what they were going to bring.” The sculptures on display are as varied as the media, from Heussen’s Copper Maiden—a female bodice created with steel screws, nuts, copper, and cement—to Jercich’s Mouse Trap—a mouse trap crafted from metal and wood squishing a blown glass orb—and Ken’s All The Flavors—suspended soft serve ice cream sculpted from laminated birch plywood. Stephanie said that they were thinking about the classic philosophy of aesthetics in art when pulling the show together. “That the artist creates something of beauty and artistic value from their personal aesthetic. But the viewer sees it from their own lens of experience,” she said, “then judges its beauty, taste, and artistic value from their specific perspective.” For instance, I was drawn to Heussen’s sculptures, which are intricately detailed, bold pieces. The Cambria resident has an extensive list of credits to his name on IMDb for his special effects work, including The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Friday the 13th Part VII: the New Blood. Steel, carved plaster, acrylic, copper, and cement, Heussen’s pieces are evocative. Spread Love, Not Violence depicts a heart-shaped grenade in shades of green and red. “He finds a lot of metal objects on the beach and he puts them together,” Ken said. “When you walk up to it, it’s amazing the detail, and he welds each of those with a MIG welding process.” Ken said he was particularly drawn to Jercich’s Mouse Trap because he marvels at

GLASS, METAL, WOOD George Jercich’s aptly named Mouse Trap is a piece that Paso Robles-based sculptor Ken Wilbanks said makes him marvel in wonder.

how the artist was able to depict a squished globe of glass in a mouse trap. “It causes this visual tension,” he said. “The first time I ever saw it, it knocked me out.” Part of what makes art in California so unique, he said, is the way the state’s geography is. It’s diverse, beautiful, and inspirational. Plus, he added, the community on the Central Coast just embraces art, something that’s unique from other places the Wilbankses have lived. They moved to Paso Robles from Arizona about nine years ago to be closer to their children, who both went to school in the Bay Area. Ken sculpts with birchwood plywood, Stephanie with glass, and both got the chance to focus on their art full time once they moved to the area, almost immediately linking up with Studios on the Park to get involved in the community. Stephanie said they’ve always felt welcome and appreciate Studios’ desire to showcase a variety of shows and artists. Although it’s been somewhat hard to connect with that community of artists during the pandemic, Stephanie said it’s given everyone a chance to focus on their work. And, art sales have gone up as well. “They’re things that people fall in love with and want in their home, and I think that’s a cool sideline to the pandemic,” she said. “Unexpected things have happened.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham wants to take a heart home.

Human nature W riter-director Neil Burger (The Illusionist, The Lucky Ones) helms this sci-fi adventure about a mission to reach a habitable planet 86 years away from Earth by spacecraft. Crewed by 30 young people, all conceived in a lab and raised in seclusion to mirror the lonely isolation of a multi-generational space journey with the idea that their grandchildren will fulfill the mission, they descend into paranoia and distrust 10 years into their voyage. Can they pull back from the brink of madness and save their species? (108 min.)

Glen Voyagers is essentially Lord of the Flies in space. What is our nature? Are we inherently altruistic and cooperative, or are we naturally tribal and violent? The film opens with the crew being raised in a facility that will mimic their long trip, which is being overseen by Richard (Colin Farrell), who deeply believes in the mission and sincerely wants to keep these young adults safe. As part of the mission protocol, however, the crew is administered “the blue,” a liquid designed to repress their sexuality and increase impulse control. Things start to go sideways when two of the young men—Christopher (Tye Sheridan) and Zac (Fionn Whitehead)—discover the truth and begin pouring the drug cocktail down the drain. Soon they grow more boisterous, competitive, and in Zac’s case, violent. As the rest of the crew also begins to refuse “the blue,” they split into tribes, and like the supposed “monster” in Lord of the Flies, there may be an alien entity on board. Obviously the story is derivative, but I was engaged throughout. It’s an interesting little potboiler that will appeal to adolescents. Anna If you’ve ever dealt with a snotty teenager who obviously knows everything about everything, you’ve probably experienced the constant feeling I had during this movie—the desire to drag them out by the ear and punch them right in their smug face. Zac is such a hateable jerk, and once he isn’t dulled down by “the blue,” his actions are downright horrible. The thing that keeps order in this world of budding adolescents is Richard and

ritten and directed by Jed Rothstein, the documentary examines the sixweek unraveling of a multi-billion-dollar overvalued company on the brink of an IPO that was supposed to save it. Wondery put out a podcast called WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork last year, and that was my introduction to this wild ride of a story and the menace/genius behind it: Adam Neumann. Talk about thinking big—Neumann planned and executed a multi-billion-dollar business, and much like Icarus, flew too close to the sun and melted his own creation into the ground. What started as a concept of bringing the millennial generation into a group space that allowed for creatives to share, to vibe, to collaborate, and to co-habitate, turned into an incredible dumpster fire. It spread from the idea of shared workspaces to shared housing to an education system, with huge

can’t believe this is a film that was almost never released. Directed by Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team, Smokin’ Aces), it was planned for release on Aug. 16, 2019. Instead it was shelved. Thank goodness it’s found a home on Hulu. It’s a hoot! Following the now well-worn idea of Groundhog Day, the story trails former Special Forces operative Roy Pulver (Frank Grillo) as he relives the day of his death over

and over again. Like Edge of Tomorrow (2014), every day Roy gets a little further through the day before he’s inevitable killed by one of a cadre of colorful assassins. Think of it like a video game and the player trying to level up. Roy’s trying to figure out why his scientist ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Gemma Wells (Naomi Watts), was killed and whether her boss, Col. Clive Ventor (Mel Gibson), had anything to do with it. Roy also eventually finds his estranged son, Joe (Grillo’s actual son, Rio), and makes up for the lost time when he was away on missions.

Story within a story Story of Soil in Los Olivos offers high-quality, balanced wines by the bottle, glass, and tasting from winemaker Jessica Gasca

T

he age-old adage “less is more” rings true for local winemaker Jessica Gasca, at least in terms of her modestly described “tiny operation,” Story of Soil in Los Olivos. “Larger wineries always seemed to lack that soul,” Gasca said on why she prefers to own and operate a relatively small-scale winery that promotes gentle processing techniques and minimal human interference. One of Gasca’s secrets to maintaining said “soul” in her winemaking is the freedom to experiment, which ideally results in more complex and interesting wines. For example: By keeping her batches of wine small, Gasca has ample room for experimentation, while wineries that use large ones can rarely risk spoiling the batch. A mission statement on the Story of Soil website begins with: “As a small winery, we can put more time, attention, and care into our wines (than the larger wineries can afford to, really).” While Gasca’s tasting room is located in Los Olivos, she collaborates with vineyards all over Santa Barbara County to create her unique wines. She described the region as “a wellspring of riches for grape growing,” which few can confidently debate. Vineyards that Gasca uses include Duvarita Vineyard in Lompoc, Larner Vineyard in Ballard, Mirabella Vineyard in Los Olivos, and Gold Coast Vineyard in Santa Maria. The latter of which is where she kicked off her winemaking career, during an internship from 2009 to 2010. Gasca can vividly remember one of her first experiences picking and sorting pinot noir grapes at Gold Coast Vineyard, just before sunrise one morning.

BOTTLE THROTTLE Story of Soil offers wine by the bottle and three different packages for wine club members to choose from (packages of three, six, or 12 bottles, each received three times a year).

“There was a certain level of extreme fulfillment I experienced when I worked that harvest,” Gasca said. “It was overwhelmingly beautiful.” Gasca felt in those initial moments as if she was connected to the Earth and its soil, which she defines as “a mixture of minerals, organic matter, gases, liquids, and countless organisms that together support life on Earth.” That profound feeling of interconnection would repeat itself throughout her career and inspire the name of her own company. “Being in the vineyard and creating with nature is remarkable; a feeling of passion, yes, but more important, a feeling of life purpose,” Gasca said. Born in Lake Arrowhead and raised mostly around Southern California, Gasca’s introduction to the Central Coast was not wine related, but it was the wine that kept her there.

RAISING THE BAR While the Story of Soil tasting room is located in Los Olivos, owner and winemaker Jessica Gasca (pictured) collaborates with vineyards all over Santa Barbara County to create her varietals, including Duvarita Vineyard in Lompoc, Larner Vineyard in Ballard, and Gold Coast Vineyard in Santa Maria.

Come hear the story

The Story of Soil tasting room—located at 2928 San Marcos Ave., Los Olivos—is currently open for reservations and walk-ins every weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and private reservations during the week. To find out more, visit storyofsoilwine.com.

“Initially I began coming to the Central Coast as my great-grandmother lived up in the Pismo Beach area, so we would come up and visit regularly,” Gasca said. After her internship at Gold Coast ended in 2010, Gasca apprenticed at Sanguis Winery in Santa Barbara for about three and a half years. She described the experience as helping her appreciate even the most meticulous details of winemaking. “Every decision and action, no matter how small they seemed, were of extreme importance to the outcome of the wine,” Gasca wrote in her bio on the Story of Soil website. “Even the stacking and

lining up of barrels became a meditation of sorts. And although times like coiling the hose over and over again might have seemed silly, it helped train me. I learned intention.” During her time at Sanguis she saved enough money to buy her own grapes and create her first vintage in 2012. Less than a decade later, Gasca isn’t only the winemaker behind Story of Soil, she’s also the president of the Santa Barbara County Vintners Association. The nonprofit was founded in 1983 to promote the county as a world-class wine producing and grape growing region. One of the association’s current priorities is making sure local vineyard workers have the opportunity to get the COVID-19 vaccine in a convenient and timely manner, Gasca explained, thanks to a mobile vaccination program offered by the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast.

“They have a mobile medical unit that comes directly to our winery and vineyard sites to vaccinate,” Gasca said. “It’s a tricky program because we are beholden to the government for the number of vaccines that we receive. So far we have vaccinated about 700 vineyard workers, but we still have a long road ahead.” As for her own wines currently offered from Story of Soil, Gasca doesn’t have a definitive personal favorite, but she can think of a few recommendations. “I am currently digging our MOBILE CLINIC Jessica Gasca is also president Martian Ranch Vineyard gamay of the Santa Barbara County Vintners Association, noir and Fiddlestix Vineyard a nonprofit that recently prioritized helping local grüner veltliner,” Gasca said. vineyard workers obtain the COVID-19 vaccine, thanks to a mobile vaccination program offered by Patrons can enjoy sampling the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast. those wines and several others at Gasca’s tasting room, which is referring to recent flows of steady business currently open for reservations and walkthanks to those comfortable enough to ins every weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and private return to the world of wine tasting. “[2020] was tough.

CITY OF GROVER BEACH

CITY OF GROVER BEACH NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Grover Beach will conduct a Public Hearing on April 26, 2021 at 6:00 p.m., or soon thereafter. Please note that due to COVID-19, the City of Grover Beach will hold all meetings virtually. Meetings can be viewed on Channel 20 and are live streamed on the City’s website and on www.slo-span. org. Members of the public may provide public comment during the meeting by calling (805) 321-6639 to provide public comment via phone (the phone line will open just prior to the start of the meeting at 6:00 PM) or written public comments can be submitted via email to gbadmin@groverbeach.org prior to the Council meeting start time of 3:00 PM. If submitting written comments in advance of the meeting, please note the agenda item. Written comments will be read out loud during the City Council meeting on the appropriate agenda item subject to the customary 3-minute time limit. SUBJECT: 1. SECOND READING AND ADOPATION OF AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GROVER BEACH, CALIFORNIA, AMENDING SECTION 16 OF CHAPTER 3 OF ARTICLE III OF THE GROVER BEACH MUNICIPAL CODE related to the updated speed limit recommendation based on the 2020 Speed Zone Survey Update. The City of Grover Beach has commissioned an engineering and traffic investigation to determine the recommended speed limit for safe operation of vehicles on major City roadways. In accordance with California Vehicle Code Section 22357, local authorities are authorized to establish prima facie speed limits on streets and roads under their jurisdiction on the basis of an engineering and traffic investigation. An engineering and traffic investigation is required to be performed every seven to ten years unless significant changes to roadway or traffic conditions have occurred. Additionally, per a 1999 amendment to Section 40802 of the California Vehicle Code, radar cannot be used to enforce speed limits unless justified by an engineering and traffic investigation performed within various specified time periods. The City commissioned an engineering and traffic investigation in 2013 and determined that a new investigation was necessary to update speed limits throughout the City and properly enforce speed limits citywide. Speed limit recommendations in the engineering and traffic investigation were made in accordance with 2014 revisions to the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and California Vehicle Code Sections 627 and 22358.5, which determine that speed limits shall be set within a 5-mph range of the 85th percentile speed on a roadway or street as determined by an engineering and traffic investigation. The commissioned engineering and traffic investigation determined that one street speed limit should increase and that five street speed limits should decrease. All speed limit increase and decrease recommendations are within 5-mph of the current speed limits. All other street speed limits were deemed appropriate at this time. Three streets were surveyed that had not previously been surveyed to establish a recommended speed limit. Where You Come In: Any member of the public may be heard on the item described in this notice by calling (805) 321-6639 during the meeting or submit written comments to the City Clerk prior to the meeting by mail to: City Clerk’s Office, 154 South Eighth Street, Grover Beach, CA 93433 or by email to gbadmin@groverbeach.org. If you require special accommodations to participate in the public hearing, please contact the City Clerk’s office at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting by calling (805) 473-4567. For More Information: If you have any questions or would like more information regarding the item described in this notice, please contact: Greg Ray by telephone at (805) 473-4530 or send an e-mail to gray@ groverbeach.org. The City Council may also discuss other hearings or items of business at this meeting.

AMENDED NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE

YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER AN ASSESSMENT LIEN. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE PURSUANT TO A NOTICE OF DEFAULT AND ELECTION TO SELL, AS SHOWN BELOW. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States, or a currently dated cashier’s check drawn by a state or national bank, as specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this State), will be held by the agent of the duly appointed Trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest held by the Trustee in the

LEGAL NOTICES hereinafter described property under and pursuant to that certain Notice of Delinquent Assessment recorded on March 10, 2020 as instrument number 2020011776 in the Official Records of San Luis Obispo County, California and the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions of Tamerlo Investments N.V., a Netherlands Antilles Corporation on August 30, 1978 as instrument number 41866 in Book 2096, Pages 914-955, as amended thereafter. The sale will be held pursuant to the Notice of Default and Election to Sell (“Notice of Default”) described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, encumbrances, or otherwise, on an “as-is, where-is” basis, to pay the sum secured by the lien, with interest and late charges thereon, advances, if any, under the occupancy of the premises and all governing documents of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, or under terms of the lien, interest thereon, fees, charges, and expenses of the Trustee, for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be as set forth below. Accrued interest, costs and additional advances, if any, may increase this figure prior to sale. It is also possible that at the time of sale, the opening bid may be less than the amount stated. The beneficiary may bid at sale and may elect to bid less than their full credit bid. Record Owner(s) at the time the Notice of Delinquent Assessment and Notice of Default were recorded: William Storm Jr. and Alisha Michelle Ball Lien Claimant / Beneficiary: Holiday Recreational Park Owners Association 100 S. Dolliver Pismo Beach, CA 93449-2997 (805) 773-1121 Duly Appointed Trustee: Hart | King Date of Notice of Default: May 29, 2020 Recording Date: July 6, 2020 Instrument No.: 2020033680 Recorded in the Official Records of San Luis Obispo County, California Date and Time of Sale: May 8, 2021 at 1:00 P.M. Place of Sale: AT THE BUSINESS OFFICE OF THE HOLIDAY RECREATIONAL VEHICLE PARK OWNERS ASSOCIATION, 100 S. DOLLIVER, PISMO BEACH, CALIFORNIA 93449-2997 Estimated amount due: $3,496.92 Accrued interest, costs and additional advances, if any, may increase the sale figure prior to sale; and it is also possible that at the time of sale, the opening bid may be less than the amount stated herein. From information which the Trustee deems reliable, the Trustee believes that the legal description and street address, or other common designation, of the real property to be sold is as follows: AN UNDIVIDED 1/875 INTEREST IN AND TO THE REAL PROPERTY DESCRIBED ON THE ATTACHED EXHIBIT “A” PURSUANT TO A DEED REFERENCING LOCKER #840 The Trustee and the authorized agent of the Trustee disclaim any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Written directions to the above-referenced property may be obtained by submitting a written request to the beneficiary identified herein within ten (10) days of the first publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale pursuant to Section 2924f of the California Civil Code. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. Rather, it would entitle you to ownership of a deed evidencing an undivided 1/875 ownership interest in the real property described in Exhibit A and owned by the members of the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park Owners Association, a California nonprofit corporation. You should also be aware that ownership of the foregoing interest subjects the owner to the provisions of the governing documents of the Holiday Recre-

LEGAL NOTICES ational Vehicle Park Owners Association, including but not limited to the Declaration of Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions referenced above, the bylaws of the foregoing nonprofit corporation, and the applicable rules and regulations in effect for the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park. You are encouraged to investigate the nature of the property and the foregoing governing documents, copies of which are either recorded or available at the Holiday Recreational Vehicle Park business office. You are also encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on the property described in Exhibit A by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (805) 7731121 for information regarding the trustee’s sale, using the reference number set forth above, 37115.031 ([Ball] - Locker #840). Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The lien claimant / beneficiary identified above heretofore delivered to the Trustee a written Notice of Delinquent Assessment and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The Trustee caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located, and more than 3 months have elapsed since such recordation. The party conducting the sale will be a duly authorized agent of the undersigned Trustee. WE ARE ACTING AS A DEBT COLLECTOR. AND ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.

(March 21-April 19): “Today I feel the whole world is a door,” wrote poet Dennis Silk. In a similar spirit, 13th century Zen master Wumen Huikai observed, “The whole world is a door of liberation, but people are unwilling to enter it.” Now I’m here to tell you, Aries, that there will be times in the coming weeks when the whole world will feel like a door to you. And if you open it, you’ll be led to potential opportunities for interesting changes that offer you liberation. This is a rare blessing. Please be sufficiently loose and alert and brave to take advantage.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Kublai Khan, ruler of the Mongol Empire and China in the second half of the 13th century, kept a retinue of 5,000 astrologers on retainer. Some were stationed on the roof of his palace, tasked with using sorcery to banish approaching storm clouds. If you asked me to perform a similar assignment, I would not do so. We need storms! They bring refreshing rain, and keep the earth in electrical balance. Lightning from storms creates ozone, a vital part of our atmosphere, and it converts nitrogen in the air into nitrogen in the ground, making the soil more fertile. Metaphorical storms often generate a host of necessary and welcome transformations, as well—as I suspect they will for you during the coming weeks.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein was called a genius by Nobel Prize-winning author Bertrand Russell. His Philosophical Investigations was once voted the 20th century’s most important philosophy book. Yet one of Wittgenstein’s famous quotes was, “How hard it is to see what is right in front of my eyes!” Luckily for all of us, I suspect that won’t be problem for you in the coming weeks, Taurus. In fact, I’m guessing you will see a whole range of things that were previously hidden, even though some of them had been right in front of your eyes. Congrats! Everyone whose life you touch will benefit because of this breakthrough.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Why don’t rivers flow straight? Well, sometimes they do, but only for a relatively short stretch. According to the US Geological Survey, no river moves in a linear trajectory for a distance of more than 10 times its width. There are numerous reasons why this is so, including the friction caused by banks and the fact that river water streams faster at the center. The place where a river changes direction is called a “meander.” I’d like to borrow this phenomenon to serve as a metaphor for your life in the coming weeks. I suspect your regular flow is due for a course change—a meander. Any intuitive ideas about which way to go? In which direction will the scenery be best?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian poet Denis Johnson eventually became a celebrated writer who won numerous prizes, including the prestigious National Book Award. But life was rough when he was in his 20s. Because of his addictions to drugs and alcohol, he neglected his writing. Later, in one of his mature poems, he expressed appreciation to people who supported him earlier on. “You saw me when I was invisible,” he wrote, “you spoke to me when I was deaf, you thanked me when I was a secret.” Are there helpers like that in your own story? Now would be a perfect time to honor them and repay the favors.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What do you believe in, exactly, Leo? The coming weeks will be a fine time to take an inventory of your beliefs—and then divest yourself of any that no longer serve you, no longer excite you, and no longer fit your changing understanding of how life works. For extra credit, I invite you to dream up some fun new beliefs that lighten your heart and stimulate your playfulness. For example, you could borrow poet Charles Wright’s approach: “I believe what the thunder and lightning have to say.” Or you could try my idea: “I believe in wonders and marvels that inspire me to fulfill my most interesting dreams.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo poet Charles Wright testifies, “I write poems to untie myself, to do penance and disappear through the upper right-hand corner of things, to say grace.” What about you, Virgo? What do you do in order to untie yourself and do penance and invoke grace? The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to use all the tricks at your disposal to accomplish such useful transformations. And if you currently have a low supply of the necessary tricks, make it your healthy obsession to get more.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Unexpressed emotions will never die,” declared trailblazing psychologist Sigmund Freud. “They are buried alive and they will come forth, later, in uglier ways.” I agree, which is why I advise you not to bury your emotions— especially now, when they urgently need to be aired. OK? Please don’t allow a scenario in which they will emerge later in ugly ways. Instead, find the courage to express them soon—in the most loving ways possible, hopefully, and with respect for people who may not be entirely receptive to them. Communicate with compassionate clarity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian author Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz wrote a poem entitled “Not Doing Something Wrong Isn’t the Same as Doing Something Right.” I propose that we make that thought one of your guiding themes during the next two weeks. If you choose to accept the assignment, you will make a list of three possible actions that fit the description “not doing something wrong,” and three actions that consist of “doing something right.” Then you will avoid doing the three wrong things named in the first list and give your generous energy to carrying out the three right things in the second list.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the past few weeks, I hope you’ve been treating yourself like a royal child. I hope you’ve been showering yourself with extra special nurturing and therapeutic treatments. I hope you’ve been telling yourself out loud how soulful and intelligent and resilient you are, and I hope you’ve delighted yourself by engaging with a series of educational inspirations. If for some inexplicable reason you have not been attending to these important matters with luxurious intensity, please make up for lost time in the coming days. Your success during the rest of 2021 depends on your devout devotion to self-care right now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Sometimes when a disheartening kind of darkness encroaches, we’re right to be afraid. In fact, it’s often wise to be afraid, because doing so may motivate us to ward off or transmute the darkness. But on other occasions, the disheartening darkness that seems to be encroaching isn’t real, or else is actually less threatening than we imagine. Novelist John Steinbeck described the latter when he wrote, “I know beyond all doubt that the dark things crowding in on me either did not exist or were not dangerous to me, and still I was afraid.” My suspicion is that this is the nature of the darkness you’re currently worried about. Can you therefore find a way to banish or at least diminish your fear?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Some people, if they didn’t make it hard for themselves, might fall asleep,” wrote novelist Saul Bellow. In other words, some of us act as if it’s entertaining, even exciting, to attract difficulties and cause problems for ourselves. If that describes you even a tiny bit, Pisces, I urge you to tone down that bad habit in the coming weeks— maybe even see if you can at least partially eliminate it. The cosmic rhythms will be on your side whenever you take measures to drown out the little voices in your head that try to undermine and sabotage you. At least for now, say “No!” to making it hard for yourself. Say “Yes!” to making it graceful for yourself. ∆
