Shandon-San Juan Water District applies for Nacimiento and Santa Margarita lake water

A

North County water district representing irrigated agriculture near Shandon is asking the state for allocations of Lake Nacimiento and Santa Margarita Lake water, which it proposes to pipe into the nearby Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. While pitched as a potential solution to the Paso basin’s overdraft, the proposal is already getting blowback from two county supervisors. “My job is not to work for special interests,” 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold said. The Shandon-San Juan (SSJ) Water District filed two applications with the California Department of Water Resources’ Division of Water Rights in January. Their applications seek up to 14,000 acrefeet per year (AFY) of water from each lake, covering winter flood overflows as well as other unallocated reservoir water, according to SSJ district board member Matt Turrentine. “You would think that the entire Salinas River system would be fully allocated, but it’s not,” Turrentine said. “That’s a real opportunity because that’s water that’s right here in the county, that could solve the problem in Paso at significant expense, for sure, but less expensive than [water] cutbacks that destroy the economy.” The district, with its roughly 70 landowners and 135,000 acres of mostly vineyard farming, is proposing to pay for the infrastructure needed to deliver the water to the eastern part of the basin, by Huer Huero Creek, at a proposed recharge facility. The water would belong to district members, but Turrentine said that the project would lead to a more balanced basin. “This is not just for the benefit of Shandon. We’re trying to achieve sustainability for the basin,” Turrentine said. “We want to erase the overdraft.” The SSJ Water District is one of four public agencies partnering under state law to bring the basin into sustainability. At least one of those other partners is an early opponent to the project.

Pismo rescinds offer to purchase Main Street homes to make room for parking

Juliet Kussman and Michael Rex have lived in their rental near the intersection of Main and Dolliver streets in downtown Pismo Beach for more than two decades. The location is perfect—just a few blocks away from the beach but far enough from the pier that their street isn’t constantly overrun by traffic and tourists (or at least it’s not as bad in other parts of Pismo). They’re close with their neighbors, they’ve known their landlord for so long that they consider him family, and their rent hasn’t gone up in years. So when Rex and Kussman found out in March that the city offered to purchase their home at 340 Main St. and others around it to make room for a parking lot, they were scared, despite the city’s promise that they’d provide all property owners and tenants with significant relocation funds. “There is no way you could put us in a better spot than we’re in right now,” Rex said.

FILE PHOTO COURTESY OF SLO COUNTY

SEEKING WATER A North County water district hopes to bring Lake Nacimiento water to the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin.

SLO County—represented by Arnold and 1st District Supervisor John Peschong at the Paso Basin Cooperative Committee—will consider sending a letter to the state opposing the SSJ district applications at a May 4 Board of Supervisors meeting. Arnold and Peschong requested the letter during an April 20 meeting. “These applications represent more of a private entity coming in and asking to basically own or have the rights to the extra water that happens in good flood years,” Arnold told New Times. “I continue to think that our groundwater and our rainwater that moves through the watershed, that recharges our North County, in my mind, best serves the public when it’s considered a public natural resource.” Arnold said that the county and other local agencies have different plans in the works for the two reservoirs and their overflow water. Those include transferring Lake Nacimiento water to Lake San Antonio via a new pipeline (a

Monterey County project), and raising the dam at Santa Margarita Lake. She said the county’s letter to the state would communicate that the county was not consulted by the SSJ Water District on its application. “They just went and did it on their own,” she said. Turrentine said he hopes his district can gain the county’s and other agencies’ support as the applications move forward. He called the opportunity “very exciting” and said “there’s a long process ahead.” “There’s a lot of to unpack. We want to collaborate with everybody,” he said. “Hopefully, this is ultimately a project that is a collaboration between the four [groundwater sustainability agencies], but somebody had to step to the front of the line and file so we have something to talk about. We’re at the front of the line for this water, so we have a good chance of actually getting it to Paso Robles.” Δ —Peter Johnson

A lack of adequate parking for tourists and residents alike has long been an issue in Pismo Beach, and the city has been working for years to create more parking in an attempt to appease residents and fix the traffic congestion issues that are worsened on weekends by those slowly making the rounds to snag a free parking spot. COVID-19 and the use of parklets for outdoor dining eliminated the already few spots to park downtown, and city staff say one of the city’s biggest parking lots downtown—a privately owned lot near Old West Cinnamon Rolls that the city leases—is likely to be sold or developed in coming years. As a way to mitigate these problems, the city purchased one parcel of land at 330 Main St., directly next to already existing city parking, in hopes of eventually acquiring the homes at 320 and 334 Main St. to make room for additional parking spaces. The parcel at 334 Main St. has three homes on it, including the rental that Rex and Kussman have lived in for 23 years. Although Rex and Kussman said their landlord and neighbors made it clear to the city they didn’t want to sell, Pismo

City Council met on April 20 and approved a relocation plan for both the property owners and tenants living on those lots. Through the relocation plan, which city staff said would only be necessary if the Main Street property owners were willing to sell, impacted tenants and property owners would have been offered thousands of dollars in rental and relocation assistance, as required by state law. Such assistance would have cost the city an estimated $220,000, according to a staff report. But City Manager Jim Lewis said the city rescinded its offer to purchase the lots on April 26 after both parties declined to sell. The larger issue of parking and other potential solutions, Lewis said, will be addressed at an upcoming City Council meeting sometime this summer. “They have made it clear they are not interested in selling to the city, and we were only pursuing an amicable transaction,” Lewis wrote in an email to New Times. Kussman and Rex said that while they’re grateful to the community members who openly opposed the acquisition and City Council for hearing their concerns, they’re still worried NEWS continued page 6

about their neighbors, rental tenants living in the home recently purchased by the city. Rex said he’s heard unconfirmed rumors that the city still plans to tear that home down and put in a few parking spots. “They’re going to throw out tenants for a parking lot?” he said. “For seven parking spots?” City Councilmember Scott Newton shared similar sentiments at the April 20 meeting. Parking is lacking in Pismo, he said, but so is housing. “And so for us to remove affordable housing that’s not being produced quick enough to keep up with demand, I think it’s a slap in the face to the residents and a slap in the face to our efforts to actually help with the affordable housing crisis,” Newton said. “If we’re going to be looking to add additional parking, then we should be looking at dirt lots, we should be looking at property that’s underutilized, but definitely not property that has housing, has people on it already.” —Kasey Bubnash

Judge’s order temporarily prevents foreclosure on Atascadero theater

Two weeks before Atascadero’s Cinema Square was slated for foreclosure, on April 22 a San Luis Obispo Superior Court Judge granted a temporary restraining order halting it. The order is welcome news in the city, Atascadero Mayor Heather Moreno said. “The economic health of Galaxy Theatre and the other Colony Square businesses is critical to the growth and prosperity of Atascadero’s downtown,” Moreno said. According to court documents, Cinema Square owner Jeff Nelson, who leases commercial space to Galaxy Theaters, Que Pasa! Mexican Cafe, and SloDoCo, hasn’t been able to make his loan payments ($551,704) since May 2020 due to statewide stay-at-home orders that resulted in temporary business closures and revenue losses. Galaxy Theatre, which court filings state is the anchor of the property, had been closed—except for three days—since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, until recently when the state started relaxing stay-at-home orders. Before May 2020, Nelson had never missed a monthly loan payment. However

when the lockdown prevented Galaxy Theatre from making its payments, Nelson immediately alerted the loan server in an effort to be transparent about his situation. In December 2020, one of Nelson’s lenders, the New York-based Wilmington Trust, filed a complaint against Cinema Square seeking the appointment of a receiver to collect past due funds. In court documents, Wilmington Trust accuses Cinema Square of diverting rent and violating the rents and profits clause of their deed. Galaxy Theatre is now open to the public at a limited capacity and has plans to apply for the Shuttered Venue Operater’s Grant, a program established by the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofit, and Venues Act. If approved, the theater plans to pay its past due rent with the granted funds. The theater would have applied for the grant program on April 8, but according to the U.S. Small Busines Administration the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant application portal was down. The website was back up on April 24. Moreno said that stalling the forclosure gives all parties involved more time to work things out. It gives the theater time to apply for grants and Nelson time to negotiate with his lenders on an equity solution, Moreno said. All parties are due to appear for a hearing on May 18. —Karen Garcia

the city “was all but shut down for several months.” Calls for homelessness rose 4 percent compared to 2019—making up 22 percent of all calls for service citywide, according to the report. The decline in sexual assaults, the report similarly states, is “likely attributed to a lack of dating and celebratory opportunities due to the public health orders.” A spike in noise complaints could be attributed to residents spending more time in their homes. Residential burglaries increased 9 percent, compared to a 1 percent decline in commercial burglaries, which was also “likely due to the pandemic” and people spending more time at home. The 2020 crime data, which will be presented to the SLO City Council on May 4, represents an “extremely challenging year for law enforcement,” according to the SLO Police Department. “The department had to balance providing emergency services, maintaining a safe work environment for our employees, educating, and enforcing constantly changing public health order regulations, and supporting community needs including several months of protests and rallies,” the report reads. The report added that filling police vacancies continues to be “extremely challenging.” The department lost several officers to retirement and other agency jobs in 2020. —Peter Johnson

SLO city reports a slight decrease in crime in 2020

Thursday night farmers’ market to return May 6

Overall crime in San Luis Obispo decreased by 5 percent in 2020, according to an annual city crime report, though some individual crime categories fluctuated dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. Compared to 2019, SLO saw a 58 percent increase in stolen vehicles, a 22 percent increase in aggravated assault, and a 24 percent increase in party-related noise complaints. Conversely, robberies declined 35 percent, rapes dropped 14 percent, and traffic incidents, like vehicle collisions, dropped as much as 51 percent. Overall, SLO reported a 7 percent decrease in property crime and a 10 percent increase in violent crime. The volatile swings in specific crime categories could be partly explained by the pandemic, the report states. For example, police saw a 23 percent decrease in calls for service to downtown because

For more than a year now, San Luis Obispo residents have been deprived of their beloved Thursday night farmers’ market, which, unlike other smaller outdoor markets, has remained closed for the entirety of the COVID-19 pandemic due to safety concerns. But there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel: The market will be back on May 6. The Downtown SLO Association, which operates the Thursday night market, announced the reopening in an April 1 Instagram post. Although the iconic event will look a little different than usual, Downtown SLO Program Director Whitney Chaney said she’s excited to have residents and farmers back downtown on Thursdays. “Downtown just doesn’t feel the same without Thursday night farmers’ market,” Chaney said, “in whatever form it is.” Before the Thursday night market’s closure, anywhere between 5,000 and

14,000 Central Coast residents and tourists would head to Higuera Street every week, where the five blocks between Osos and Nipomo streets were usually bustling with scores of vendors serving up barbecue, fresh-picked produce, and everything in between. Most farmers’ markets offer services similar to that of grocery stores and are allowed to operate amid the pandemic as essential businesses. But night markets like downtown SLO’s—which often include live entertainment, hot food, and informational booths—are categorized as special events or street fairs. So while it’s been business as usual for the many daytime farmers’ markets throughout SLO County, it’s been more than a year since SLO saw its last Thursday night market on March 5, 2020. The market’s format won’t be quite the same this year as in years past, Chaney said. There won’t be live music, entertainment, or hot food, and eating and drinking won’t be allowed within the boundaries of market. It’ll run from 6 to 9 p.m., vendors will set up shop on Higuera Street from Chorro to Osos streets, and masks and physical distancing rules will be enforced. While the Thursday night market normally hosts an array of food and drink options, the pandemic version will mostly feature certified produce vendors and a limited number of vendors who sell products like bread, honey, and jam that are portable and aren’t meant to be consumed on the spot. Most of these changes, Chaney said, are aimed at keeping crowds under control and limiting attendance as much as possible. A lot of tourists visit the market for hot food and then stay to enjoy the live music or other shows. This format, Chaney said, will keep people flowing in and out of the market while still supporting market vendors, downtown businesses, and the Downtown SLO Association itself. By early February of this year, Downtown SLO, a nonprofit that raises money for its own operations and services through events like the Thursday night market, estimated that it had lost roughly $200,000 as a result of the market’s closure. The market’s downsizing, though, is only temporary. “We really want to support our farmers,” she said, “and we look forward to expanding as soon as we’re able to.” ∆ —Kasey Bubnash

Future of farming Labor contractors, advocacy organizations agree that the Farm Workforce Modernization Act is the right step forward—now it needs to pass the Senate

A

lexandra Allen, owner of Main Street Produce and Freshway Farms, has operated her Santa Maria-based businesses alongside her husband since the ’70s. Only in the last few years did they start using the H-2A program, which allows foreign agricultural workers to work in the U.S. on a temporary visa. “The H-2A program has been around for a long time, but we, like many growers, didn’t pay much attention to it because it just seemed so prohibitively expensive,” Allen said. Those who bring in H-2A labor must feed and house their guest workers and are required to pay them what’s called an “adverse effect wage rate.” “The philosophy behind that makes perfect sense,” Allen said. “They require you to pay this heightened wage because our government wants to make sure that we are not hiring foreign workers if there are domestic workers available.” But the reality, particularly in recent years, is that there aren’t enough domestic workers to cover the farm labor needs in Santa Maria, according to Allen. Her company started by employing a couple of dozen H-2A workers three years ago. It’s more expensive, but Allen said they had no other choice. This season, they will bring in about 250 workers. “Here in the Santa Maria Valley, we produce food that feeds the country and many parts of the world, and that demand is continuing to grow,” Allen said. “But the workforce is not increasing commensurately with the demands. As immigration has tightened, as the Mexican economy has improved, we don’t have the number of people who want to come to this country and work in agriculture that we used to.” Allen supports the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, a bill recently reintroduced by U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) and a group of bipartisan House members that aims to streamline the H-2A program and provide a path to legal status for farmworkers.

“In essence, we are creating a modernday guest worker program that would allow employers to address some of the challenges that they have with the existing H-2A program,” Carbajal told New Times, such as recruitment, the filing process, reducing costs associated with the visa process, and reforming H-2A wages. The bill also creates a new type of temporary status called a certified agricultural worker, Carbajal said. Applicants who show that they’ve worked 180 days of agricultural employment over the past two years and pass a background check can achieve the renewable, temporary status. Those who earn the status and continue to work in agriculture for another four to eight years (depending on how long they worked prior to the legislation’s enactment) can then apply for a green card, if they desire. Achieving this legal permanent residence then allows them to pursue citizenship, just like anyone else who holds a green card, Carbajal said. The act passed the House on March 18 is awaiting Senate approval. All but one of the House Democrats voted to pass the bill, and 30 Republicans also voted in favor. Pretty much everyone in California agriculture supports the bill, including San Luis Obispo County Farm Bureau Executive Director Brent Burchett. “We cannot control the weather, or market prices, but we do have the ability to stabilize our agricultural labor force. Our federal government just lacks the political will to do so,” Burchett said. “Immigration will always be a controversial political issue, but I want people to understand we would not have food without our agricultural workers.” Burchett expressed his frustration with the “broken immigration system” and increasing labor regulations that have made it difficult to get enough workers throughout the year. “It’s frustrating that while we depend on farmworkers for our literal survival, we are not willing to have a real policy

conversation about immigration reform if it includes any sort of pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers. There is never going to be a perfect policy solution,” he continued, “but we have to be realistic that a system that relies solely on border walls and deportation is untenable. This legislation is not going to eliminate all our labor challenges, but it certainly is a step in the right direction.” SLO County and Santa Maria Valley farmers want a mix of both H-2A and local workers because while H-2A workers are important to the workforce, it’s an extra expense to provide housing and transportation. Farmers don’t need to do that for local workers who are available yearround, which isn’t the case for H-2A workers. The Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE), a farmworker advocacy organization, also supports the legislation. “This is really impactful to the Santa Maria economy,” CAUSE Policy Advocate Rebeca Garcia said. “It would create a stable workforce for our agricultural industry, while at the same time bringing that needed ease for our farmworker community to feel comfortable in their jobs. That opens up the door for them to become more included in the community.” The certified agricultural worker status “would take away the worry and the fear that a lot of our farmworkers exist with,” Garcia said. “The majority of the nation’s farmworkers are undocumented. That’s 2.4 million farmworkers … living with

that constant fear of deportation,” she continued. “Giving them the status would bring a lot of relief in that way, and then having that path to citizenship on top of that is a new conversation for our farmworkers.” Garcia said CAUSE would like to see H-2A reform legislation go further in protecting and regulating housing. “Given the pandemic, Santa Maria has specifically seen the consequences of not providing safe H-2A housing that allows people to socially distance,” she said. CAUSE warned early on in the pandemic that the tight living conditions H-2A workers typically have could increase the risk of infection and spread. A July 2020 COVID-19 outbreak among Alco Harvesting workers living in H-2A housing confirmed that fear, when 95 workers were infected and one man died. Garcia said that the bill’s proposed nationwide E-Verify system is a step in the right direction for regulating the guestworker program. It would be phased in after the legalization and H-2A reforms are implemented, Carbajal said. “This has been a great bipartisan effort, and I think provides a model for how we can work together on our continued immigration efforts that we are no doubt going to be working on,” Carbajal said. ∆ Sun Staff Writer Malea Martin can be reached at mmartin@santamariasun.com.

Restoring history Pismo Beach residents Deb and Victor Early hope to bring one of Oceano’s oldest buildings back to life

PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

I

t doesn’t look like much now, but the small and dilapidated shack that sits at 1600 Ocean St. in Oceano is one of the town’s oldest and most beloved buildings. Longtime community members say there’s a lot of history on that property, which is across the street from the Great American Melodrama and has housed a general store, printing press, and a movie theater. For the first time in decades, 1600 Ocean has a bright future, too. Deb and Victor Early purchased the property in November 2020 after they saw a real estate ad for the building in the window of a shop in downtown Pismo Beach. The Earlys, college sweethearts who’ve been married for more than 30 years, moved to Pismo from the Bay Area around 2017 after spending years restoring a Victorian home there. They’ve always liked big projects and preserving history, and when the Earlys first saw the building on Ocean Street, they envisioned all it once was and all it could be. It has strong bones and original features still intact that, with ample care and attention, could be the staples of a beautiful space. The project is still in its infancy, but the Earlys hope to fully restore the building and run a local business there once they retire, maybe a restaurant. “We do want to make sure that whatever we do is kind of in line with the community,” Deb said on April 22, as she looked up at the building’s redwood frame. “We’re lucky we’re kind of next to the Melodrama too, so it’s kind of this somewhat commercial space. But it’s all residential on the other side so we want to be conscious of the—whatever we do with it—the community.” Since purchasing the property in the fall, the Earlys have focused on smallerscale cleaning and restoration work. They launched an Instagram page (@oceano. dunesville) to document their progress, and they’re holding off on big structural changes until they’ve obtained the appropriate permits. Victor, a geologist, said there are some

RESTORATION HOBBYISTS Pismo Beach residents Deb and Victor Early purchased the turn-of-the-century building at 1600 Ocean St. in Oceano in November 2020 and are working to restore it.

A LONG ROAD AHEAD Deb and Victor Early stand in the entryway of one of Oceano’s oldest buildings.

drainage issues to deal with and a lot of rotting wood, but much of the building is made from old-growth redwood that, after a little stripping and sanding, will continue to withstand the test of time. They ripped off the building’s failing roof and three layers of plywood that had covered the front of the building for years, which the Earlys said actually helped to preserve the building’s tall original entryway doors and 8-foot-tall window frames. Victor said he expects the restoration, even with a whole contracting team, to take at least three years. Neighbors, he said, seem happy with the progress so far. “There’s a lot of people who go for walks around here, and they stop in and they’re very excited that we’re gonna do anything because it’s been boarded up for decades and it was an eyesore,” Victor said. “So we got a lot of positive comments.” Linda Austin is a lifelong Oceano resident and president of the Oceano Community Services District. With generations of family history in Oceano and as a longtime curator of the Oceano Train Depot museum, Austin is largely considered one of the area’s leading historians. The building at 1600 Ocean, built in 1896, is one of Oceano’s last surviving facilities from the turn of the century, erected just a few years after the town itself first appeared on a map in 1893, according to Austin. Beckett-Frakes General Merchandise was the first business to operate in the building, which Austin said had big wooden cupboards and shelving to hold the store’s products and redwood molding that wrapped all the way around its interior. By the 1920s, Austin said the building had become a meeting space for the Oceano Chamber of Commerce, which formed in 1923, and other community events. In 1925, despite the building’s lack of plumbing and heat, it became a local movie theater. Austin said the theater owners used a hand-cranked projector to show films and a coal-burning stove to keep attendees warm. The theater’s

projectionist lived in Pismo Beach, Austin said, and would ride from Pismo to Oceano in a horse and buggy to show movies there. The first few movies that played in the theater were silent films, including The Burning of Rome (1909). Years later, Austin said a printing company, the Halycon Press, started up in the building and eventually morphed into the Oceano Round Table Book Company in 1936, which printed the town’s newspaper and a number of Dunite poem books. Eventually the printing press closed when the owner retired in the late ’60s, and Austin said the building has essentially been used for storage ever since. It was on the market for quite some time before it sold to the Earlys in the fall of 2020. “We were so afraid when it sold they would tear it down,” Austin said. “We’re just thrilled to have them doing this meticulous restoration. It’s just wonderful.” There’s a lot of work left to be done, but the Earlys aren’t afraid of a challenge. They’re proud to be entrusted with the preservation of the building’s past, and even more hopeful for its future. “Hopefully, it won’t fall down on us,” Deb said with a laugh. ∆ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

TARGET PRACTICE Toptracer at Dairy Creek Golf Course is a blast. After hitting a golf ball into a live driving range accented by color-coded target pins, you can check a computer screen to see how far and straight it went, and how close it got to the pin.

BY PETER JOHNSON

Big swings S an Luis Obispo County Golf Superintendent Josh Heptig likes to describe the new Toptracer facility at Dairy Creek Golf Course as a combination of a driving range, bowling alley, sports bar, and pinball machine. “It’s ridiculously fun,” Heptig told me on April 22, the afternoon before I went to try it myself. “You don’t have to be a good golfer to have fun.” Toptracer is a popular and growing technology that uses cameras and computers to track, analyze, and digitally visualize live golf shots. A game changer for pros (and wannabe pros), who love it for the analytics, Toptracer also opens up a new genre of arcade-style fun for the general public. “Our whole goal of doing this was to make golf more inviting and more welcoming, to bring other people to the game that haven’t before,” Heptig explained. As I arrive at Dairy Creek at 7:30 p.m., I see the lit-up Toptracer target pins from my car as I pass the new The Siren restaurant at the course. Already, I start to see the beginnings of what will be a totally reimagined El Chorro Regional Park in a few years. SLO County recently downsized Dairy Creek from 18 holes to nine holes in response to a dramatic and permanent water shortage at the course. In its place are plans for a variety of new recreational offerings, including go-kart racing, mini golf, a zip line course, camping cabins, BMX bike trails, disc golf, and Toptracer. Toptracer is the first of those projects to get off the ground. Its construction started right before the COVID-19 pandemic, and it opened in October 2020. “Had we not gotten started on the project when we did, it probably wouldn’t be here,” Heptig said, referring to the COVID-19’s impact on many pending county projects. As I enter the facility, my first thought is, this is golf and bowling fused together. People sitting on couches in their separate “bays” enjoy their food and drinks while trading turns hitting golf balls into a live driving range. With the sun setting, the scenery turns dark and the color-coded lighted target pins shine bright. The building has three walls with an opening to the range and

TV screens in each bay. After I set my clubs down and order a beer from a server at The Siren, I turn to the touch screen that’s located next to the tee box. I learn that Toptracer basically blends the virtual with the real. I can do practice shots and check the screen after each one to find out how far and straight it went. I can play “closest to the pin” or “longest drive.” I can get serious and play virtual holes at famous golf courses like Pebble Beach. It does take some time to get used to the technology and the screens, but once I do, I’m having a complete blast. After some practice shots, I start playing Pebble Beach. Time is flying. Toptracer rates are $50 per bay per hour, which is steep, but it can be split with your group of four (the maximum allowed during COVID-19). I’m here alone tonight, and I quickly realize that this game is best enjoyed in a social setting. As I look at the other bays, I’m impressed by the diversity of customers. Families with young kids are here, as are couples and groups of friends. The broad appeal of Toptracer is precisely why it’s there, according to Heptig. SLO County is trying to turn Dairy Creek from a financial disaster into a successful and welcoming hub for community recreation. And so far, it’s working. “We’ve been booked out solid pretty much since we opened,” Heptig said. “The energy, the excitement, and the diversity of people we’re seeing on the property has completely and totally morphed.”

Fast fact

• The SLO County Public Health Department vaccinated 3,144 residents for COVID-19 on April 23—its highest single-day total since the start of the vaccination campaign. Nearly 11,000 shots went to local residents throughout the week of April 19—bringing the county’s total to 137,805 to date. Health officials say about half of all county residents have now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, either through a public health clinic or a pharmacy. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson wrote this week’s Strokes and Plugs.

Opinion

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

Commentary

BY SAVANA ROSE WOODS

Housing first SLO should take a cue from cities that have successfully offered up solutions to homelessness

T

his is the first time I have written to the paper, but Shredder’s “Kick ’em when they’re down” piece (April 22) really riled me up. I am absolutely ashamed and astonished at the total lack of compassion or solutions for our unhoused residents. Shredder hit the nail on the head over and over in the column. I live a block from Mitchell Park, and over the past year have dropped by the park regularly to bring the residents socks, food, and clothes/shoes. And just before that big storm hit in February, I brought blankets and warnings about just how much rain was expected and they might want to move tents to higher ground. These are just regular people! They deserve to have a decent place to live inside! You know, they’re not all criminal drug addicts and alcoholics (though if I had to live outside, I’d probably turn to drugs and alcohol, too). Some are families, some had good jobs but no savings cushion when the pandemic struck, some have shattering mental problems, some were just one month away from homelessness when they got sick and could no longer afford rent anymore. Or how about the tiny hunched over old lady who has two wheeled suitcases holding her belongings. She’s gotta be at least 80 years old. I see her around downtown a lot. Here’s how she handles moving from place to place: She pushes one suitcase up a block, then walks back

HODIN

to get the other suitcase, and then wheels it up to the other one. Over and over and over until she gets where she’s going. I’ve asked her twice if I can help her, and she declines, telling me these are too heavy for me (a tall strong middle-aged woman) to handle! Then she just keeps going. My God, we can’t find a place for her? On my daily walk a few days ago, I was stunned to see absolutely no one at the park, and all the regulars gone. I burst into tears. Where did they go? Why was this done? Were housing solutions offered by the city? I was angry and sad. The level of NIMBYism in this town is truly disgusting: “Hey, lets allow developers to build fancy hotels that cost $500/night and giant new neighborhoods that no one will be able to afford, but as for those drug addicted pieces of shit in the park—just get rid of them, whatever you have to do.” And it’s not just the SLO City Council and other government offices that continue to ignore the problem or just make sweeps every now and then, it’s the residents of our “happy” city who live in million-dollar, 1,200-square-foot houses and 5,000-squarefoot mansions who also just want them gone. If they even have a thought about the homeless crisis, they just pat themselves on the back and say, “Well we have Prado. Why don’t they just go there?” As if one facility could fix all of the problems! Oh and these human beings who are sheltering downtown

cannot even get to Prado unless they walk 3 miles, pushing their now illegal shopping carts that hold all their meager belongings. Even if they did get there (which many don’t want to go for reasons I can’t get into right now), it might be full, or not accepting new arrivals! People, is there no way to provide a shuttle to those who want it? But let’s get to the real root of the problem. Housing! It has been shown in many more kind cities than SLO that people who have even the simplest type of reliable home (tiny houses, revamped hotels, legal tent cities with facilities) actually begin to thrive. Add social services to it for rehab, mental wellness help, job searching services, etc., and they might even (gasp!) be productive, happy citizens! This city now has a huge amount of government money to use to help the people of SLO. What are they going to do about the unhoused people of this city/ county? How much of that money will be applied to those whose voices, needs, and circumstances are basically ignored? And regulations continue to pass that are punitive and discriminatory toward these humans! There are better solutions. Under housing-first programs, homeless people need not meet any criteria to qualify for housing. Even if they are struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, they can get a place to stay. They are of course expected to stay in touch with social workers, but other than that, not much is required of them. They are even permitted to stay in these places for the rest of their lives! People cope better with their problems when they have a roof over their heads. Controlling addictions and alcoholism has been found to be much easier when given housing. Not having a place to stay only makes matters worse. The same is true for practically every

other social problem. There are many cities that have successful programs for housing. Don’t reinvent the wheel, study other cities’ successes, and let’s take action SLO in implementing these kinds of housing solutions. 1. Houston, Texas: Implements housing first, “a revolutionary idea when it was housing first, a revolutionary idea when it was introduced in the 1990s because it didn’t require homeless people to fix their problems before getting permanent housing. Instead, its premise—since confirmed by years of research—was that people are better able to address their individual problems when basic needs, such as food and a place to live, are met,” according to the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism. 2. Salt Lake City, Utah: The state of Utah has also been doing well with housing first. It has solved its homeless crisis by also handing people a house first. 3.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

Now it’s tantrum time A

t the April 20 SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting, 1st District Supervisor John Peschong, 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold, and 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton voted to agendize a hearing at which the county could decide to pull out of the Integrated Waste Management Authority. No one is unclear on the reason why. The IWMA ban on polystyrene passed two years ago to “help maximize the operating life of landfills and help protect the natural environment from contamination and degradation” (emphasis added) but was left in limbo. It was finally implemented on April 16 despite the gun-to-the-head threat from our conservative ruling block of supervisors to leave the IWMA if it was—a threat that scared some (but not quite enough) of their colleagues on the IWMA board to vote against a ban they had previously voted for. As CalCoastNews put it in the run-up to the polystyrene vote: “Peschong and Arnold noted plans to pull the county out of the IWMA if they continued to force ordinances on communities they were not elected to represent. Paso Robles Councilman John SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY Hamon agreed, saying Paso Robles would likely exit the IWMA with the county.” (805) 546-8208 advertising@newtimesslo.com This was one in a string of bogus rationales for opposition to implementing the ban. Let us count the ways: • Sacramento could achieve the goals of the ban with a statewide bill, rendering a DCPP C ALENDAR local ban unnecessary. (No such bill has been passed by the state Legislature, and every such bill legislators have attempted to pass in recent years has been killed.) • The IWMA must only enforce mandates from the state.

the longstanding conservative dream of abolishing the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Education, etc., in fealty to the philosophy that government agencies are undemocratic? Are the conservative supervisors unaware that every regulatory body in the nation that is overseen by boards of elected officials makes decisions and passes ordinances that apply beyond the political jurisdiction of any single board member? Are they unaware that on any given Tuesday, they themselves vote on measures that may primarily or only effect the residents of a supervisorial district not their own? An elected official who does not understand this—or pretends not to when it suits his or her purposes—probably has no business being an elected official. The hearing on pulling the county out of the IWMA may be held as early as the supervisors’ May 4 meeting (the county didn’t post an agenda before press time). County staff will hopefully take the time to acquaint the board majority—and indirectly, the city of Paso Robles—with the phrase “economies of scale” and point out the reasons why it might be a good thing that, for the last 27 years, there has been a single agency that manages all hazardous waste, universal waste, solid waste, green/food waste, and recycling for San Luis Obispo County. If they do so but the board majority chooses not to hear them, it will be because the ideological call of the wild overpowered any residual fondness for responsible governance, and the grand exit must be made no matter how much more money it costs all residents to take on the duties of the IWMA via multiple smaller, semi-redundant agencies that must make some attempt at coordination across a tangle of multiple local jurisdictions. That grand exit on a 3-2 vote won’t be as memorable as it would be if Supervisors Peschong, Compton, and Arnold lay on the floor, screaming, kicking their heels and holding their breath until their faces turned blue. But it will come to the same thing. ∆ Andrew Christie is the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club’s director. Send comments for publication to letters@ newtimesslo.com.

The Shredder

Waterspiracy

C

TM

all me cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs but the little water banking conspiracy theory that’s been hanging over the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin for years suddenly sounds plausible. Here’s the gist of it: Big landowners on the east side (cough, cough, Harvard Investment Group) of the Paso basin want to essentially bank water for themselves and then sell it to the highest bidder, profiting off a public resource contained in one of the most severely depleted water basins in California. These shenanigans would come at the expense of others who overlie the water basin and depend on it, because groundwater in a basin isn’t separated by property lines. For the most part, this theory sounds bonkers. With so many eyes on this fraught water source, who would try to be so deviant? Managed by the county and North County groundwater sustainability agencies through the Paso Basin Cooperative Committee—something conspiracy theory believer 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold pushed for, in part, because of this little water-banking tall tale—the water basin’s steps toward a more sustainable future depend on a groundwater sustainability plan passed in 2019. That way, no one can go rogue! Or can they? Well … I guess that all depends on how you look at the Shandon-San Juan Water District’s (containing that Harvard

property) recent applications to gain the rights to up to 28,000 acre-feet of unspoken-for water per year from Lake Nacimiento and Santa Margarita Lake. Arnold doesn’t like it one bit! “These applications represent more of a private entity coming in and asking to basically own or have the rights to the extra water that happens in good flood years,” she said. First of all, there’s no such thing as “extra” water. Secondly, I have to say, she might be right. Yeah, I said it. Pick that jaw up off the floor. I’m not big on conspiracy theories, but the applications might be the most ammunition that Shandon-San Juan has given hardcore water bank believers out there to hold onto other than whispered secrets full of hot air. They are not a good look for the ShandonSan Juan Water District, no matter what district board member Matt Turrentine says. Turrentine, who also manages Harvard Investment Group’s vineyards (Go deeper, conspiracy theorists!), is claiming that the water allocation could go a long way to erasing the Paso basin’s overdraft. “This is not just for the benefit of Shandon. We’re trying to achieve sustainability for the basin,” he said. See, all of you people who don’t trust big agricultural landowners who might try to gain control of a big portion of water they

can keep for themselves, they’re doing this for you! Technically, though, only the district and its members—not anyone else—will own the water if the state accepts these applications. Semantics, amirite? He told New Times that diverting water from Nacimiento and Santa Margarita Lake are part of the groundwater sustainability plan, anyway—so nothing to see here! They saw an opportunity to take some unallocated water and filed applications, “in what we hope is a broad collaborative process” with other groundwater sustainability agencies. Simply taking the lead, you know? Only, none of the other agencies were included on the applications. And what Shandon-San Juan is proposing in its applications isn’t exactly in the sustainability plan. Turrentine’s interpretation of the plan is a little bit, umm, broad. Nacimiento and Salinas Dam (on Santa Margarita Lake) are mentioned as potential sources of water to help bring the basin into balance. However, the actual preferred projects outlined in the plan that Shandon-San Juan and the other members of the Paso basin committee agreed to would deliver up to 3,500, 1,250, and 2,500 acre-feet of Nacimiento Water Project water to three separate parts of the basin—near San Miguel, north of the city of Paso, and just east of Paso, respectively. The plan doesn’t outline projects that deliver 14,000 acre-feet of Naci water to the basin for Shandon-San Juan Water District members. And as far as Santa Margarita Lake goes, the plan is to expand the dam—not give all

its extra water to Shandon-San Juan. So I’m not 100 percent sure that this “broad collaborative process” is off to a winning start. It’s off to a sketchy one that’s bound to inflame tensions and conspiracy theorizing in an already contentious water basin. In fact, it already has! No surprises there. Arnold and 1st District Supervisor John Peschong are talking about sending a letter to the state saying the county wasn’t communicated with about the applications. “They just went and did it on their own,” Arnold said. Boy they sure did, didn’t they. Kind of like how the San Luis Obispo Police Department decided that it did a good job of managing the protests last summer. Kind of funny that a police department can pat itself on the back for a job well done when city residents believe the opposite. One of the police department’s biggest accomplishments over the last year, according to a presentation it put together for a SLO City Council meeting: “Protest Management.” I guess that depends on how you define protest management. Riot gear, check. Lots of sandwiches from Mr. Pickles, check. Shoot tear gas into a crowd of young adults, check. Deny wrongdoing, check. ∆ The Shredder is wondering where to turn in sandwich expenses. Send comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

Take the trip Circles Around the Sun plays SLO Brew Rock

T

riptastic instrumental jam masters Circles Around the Sun are coming in for a landing at SLO Brew Rock next Thursday, May 6. These far out LA cats are consummate musicians who last year dropped their third studio full-length, a self-titled follow-up to 2018’s Let It Wander and 2015’s Interludes for the Dead. Before COVID-19 came along and smashed the live music industry, Circles was headlining big venues like the Brooklyn Bowl, NYC’s the Beacon Theater, and LA’s Echoplex. Seeing them in SLO Brew Rock is a pretty big deal, especially since this is a table-seated-only show, meaning very few people and a lot of socially distanced intimacy. In fact, no single tickets will be sold. (Doors at 6:30 p.m.; all ages; a reserved two-top table for $90 plus fees or a four-top for $180 plus fees at ticketweb.com). This will be the group’s first West Coast show with new guitarist Scott Metzger, who replaced Neal Casal after his passing in August 2019. The band also includes Adam MacDougall (keyboards), Dan Horne (bass), and Mark Levy (drums). If you need a tasty taste of their instrumental grooves, there are plenty of videos online to wet your whistle. This one will definitely sell out! Also at SLO Brew Rock this week, check out Word Sauce and The Bogeys this Friday, April 30, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. “We were so bummed to have to postpone last month’s Wordsauce show,” the club posted on its Facebook page, “but these boys from The Sauce Pot are gonna deliver the high energy hip-hop fusion you’ve been waiting for. Then they’ll be followed by the always entertaining rock band The Bogeys! These gents have been scheming in the studio and can’t wait to show you their new direction.”

Even a tireless sound engineer can’t work forever, and so it goes with Steve Crimmel of Cambria’s Painted Sky Studios, who—after 26 years of making studio magic for both local musicians and those who traveled from out of the area to record at his studio—is retiring to the Big Island of Hawaii. Bon voyage et bonne chance, monsieur! You can bid Steve a fond farewell next Thursday, May 6, between 3 and 8 p.m. in the studio at the historic Woodland Garage (715 Main St.) and meet the studio’s new owner and operator, Brad Stock, a producer, songwriter, and multiinstrumentalist who “will continue to expand and enhance the services offered at Painted Sky Studios.” One player who’s going to miss Steve is local singer-songwriter Craig Nuttycombe, who wrote, “On behalf of myself (and I feel confident in saying other fellow songwriters and musicians), I would like to offer a sincere thank you and aloha to Steve Crimmel. Steve is the founder/owner of Painted Sky, which for a number of years now has been a place for artists to record and perform, as well as a venue for locals to perform. Steve also brought in many wonderful artists from outside the area. “Life is change and Steve has sold Painted Sky to move to Hawaii with his lovely wife,” Nuttycombe continued. “I’ve yet to meet the new owner, but it’s my understanding he plans to carry on the legacy of the studio and concert venue. I hope all of us musician types and concertgoers alike support him and welcome him to our musical community. Thank you for all you brought and gave to this area, Steve, and best of luck in your new adventure!” ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Cambria Center for the Arts presents a virtual fundraiser, Spring for the Arts, and silent auction

On Sunday, May 16, the Cambria Center for the Arts (CCA) will stream a virtual benefit event, Spring for the Arts, starting at 4 p.m. This program will feature musical performances, a live art demonstration, and a short film screening. Proceeds raised during the event will support proposed upgrades for the CCA, including a new facility layout, repainted walls and updated lighting in the gallery, an improved conference room, increased classroom space, theater enhancements for film and stage programs, and more. Mari Fedrow, president of the CCA, explained the upgrades as well as reopening plans in a recent press release. “Due to the pandemic, our center has been closed since last March. But now, as conditions improve, we will be returning to a full slate of art exhibits, classes, theater performances, film, and other programming,” Fedrow said in the release. “Though our center has been closed for over a year, we have been busy making the arts accessible beyond our doors through several community arts projects. We also have used this time to assess our facilities and plan a revitalization for our opening.” Beginning on Sunday, May 9, the CCA will be raising additional funds through a virtual silent auction. Participants will be able to bid on a variety of offerings, including gift certificates; admission tickets to art, dance, and improv classes; and more. Bidding will run through Sunday, May 16, when the Spring for the Arts program begins streaming. Visit cambriaarts.org for more details.

Laura-Susan Thomas, director of the Ann Foxworthy Gallery and guest curator at SLOMA, discusses two ongoing virtual exhibits

I

think having multiple tasks, at least for me, keeps me energized and fresh,” said Laura-Susan Thomas, who recently curated not one but two local exhibitions. As the director of the Ann Foxworthy Gallery at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, Thomas organized the venue’s annual Fine Art Student Show, which premiered online this year at the end of March and will remain available through the end of May. She also curated Finding Spaces, a new group show at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA), which nearly shares the same runtime (April 2 through May 30). “It’s always exciting to work with a new space and new faces. I feel like every show I install, I always learn something new from the artists, the staff, even the process,” Thomas said, commenting on her first outing as a guest curator at SLOMA. “Curating a group show especially, you get to work with artists who are working in so many different techniques.” For Finding Spaces, Thomas curated a collection of artworks created by members of The Painters Group, a collective of local artists sponsored by SLOMA.

It’s all but over … except just maybe he’s the only offspring of 117th century ninja clan leader Hanzo Hasashi (Hiroyuki Sanada), who was defeated by evil Bi-Han/Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), who slew the whole Hasashi bloodline except for a hidden infant daughter found by Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano)—lowercase god of thunder—who saves the girl so she could continue the Hasashi bloodline and its prophesy that the blood of Hanzo Hasashi will unite a new generation of Earthrealm champions to defeat Outworld before Outworld wins a 10th Mortal Combat tournament and takes over Earth.

Celebrating Paso Straight Out Of Paso pays homage to everything the area represents, from Rhone varietals to cowboys

O

n just about every single business trip to wine events across the country, Edgar Torres hears himself explain to yet another person that California wines aren’t just made in the region that first made the state famous for wines. He recalled being in Kansas City, Missouri, pouring his wine, Bodega de Edgar—which has focused on Central Coast-grown Spanish varietals since 2009—into people’s glasses. Several of them asked him if Paso Robles was in Texas. “I still run into the headache of explaining where Paso Robles is. All they can reference is Napa,” Torres said. “I decided to kind of pay my respects to the place where I really started my wine career.” So he started a second label, Straight Out Of Paso, highlighting the Rhone varietals that Paso does so well and the families and vineyards that make the region special. Those include J. Dusi, Paper Street (also J. Dusi), Rotta, and Denner vineyards. Dusi Vineyard started in the early 1920s in Paso, and Rotta Vineyard started in the late 1800s in Templeton. Both farm their grapes in a way that matches Torres’ approach to winemaking. They don’t use a lot of chemicals and pesticides, and they’re respectful to the environment, he said. J. Dusi’s Paper Street Vineyard, for instance, dry farms grapes from head-trained vines, a handson approach to growing that stresses the vine and concentrates the flavors and sugars in the fruit. “One of the fun things about winemaking is just really letting nature express itself. We really tie our hands to producing nothing but natural wines,”

DOWNTOWN DIGS You can find Straight Out Of Paso’s patio off Railroad Street next to California Coast Beer Company.

STRAIGHT OUT OF PASO Edgar Torres’ second wine label aims to highlight the Rhone grapes that Paso Robles grows so well.

Torres said. “We’re not putting chemicals in there that shouldn’t be in there.” Torres said if he has to add yeast, he does, but his wines are unfiltered and unfined. They don’t add anything to the wine to make it more aesthetically pleasing—to change its color or viscosity. The Straight Out Of Paso project started in 2018, took off during the pandemic in 2020 with a focus on web sales, and was finally able to open a tasting room in downtown Paso Robles in February 2021. Next to California Coast Beer Company on Railroad Street, Straight Out Of Paso’s concrete, tree-shaded patio leads into a modern tasting room with a garage door that opens into the parking lot. During a recent visit, Torres pulled out the cabernet sauvignon made with grapes from Rotta Vineyard; his zinfandel with

grapes from J. Dusi Vineyard; and a white blend of roussanne, marsanne, and clairette blanche from Paper Street and Law Estate vineyards. He pointed out the labels, which are simple, each emblazoned with Straight Out Of Paso and a black-and-white image that conjures feelings of the West. He said the whole idea is to highlight Paso, so the models he uses are from Paso, for instance a local cattleman on

horseback. He said his next blend will be play on GSM (grenache, syrah, and mourvedre). The grenache, mourvedre, and carignan—GMC—will definitely have a GMC truck on the label, he said with a laugh. Torres started his path to wine in 2002 at Villa Creek Restaurant in downtown Paso as a server. “I was pretty much after college being a waiter, serving some good food and good wine, and I was in the middle of the Rhone explosion,” he said. A lot of younger winemakers were coming into town with a passion for wine, and he said he was attracted to their punk-rock style of making wine. He decided against making the jump from Cuesta College to Cal Poly, in part, he said, because he was an undocumented immigrant at the time. Instead, he absorbed as much as he could about wine. “I’ve been very blessed,” he said. “The life that I’m getting to live is kind of the idea of rags to riches.” In 1989, when he was 8 years old, his family moved from Michoacán, Mexico, to

Cambria, where he grew up. His father did the odds and ends that many immigrants do, working in landscaping, construction, and at a hotel. His mother did the same, primarily housekeeping and she worked at a hotel for about 15 years. Torres went to Coast Union High School and later played soccer at Allan Hancock College. He also attended Cuesta College and received a associate degree in liberal arts. Ideally, he said, he wanted a career path where he earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and eventually landed a job in law enforcement. Although Torres became a U.S. citizen in 2019, he hadn’t been in the country legally while he was in school, and he didn’t see the benefit of attending Cal Poly to graduate with a piece of paper that he wouldn’t be able to use. “I have a lot of friends of mine that are officers, who tell me I made the right move,” he said with a laugh. While still working at Villa Greek, he learned to make wine at Garretson Wines with fledgling winemakers like Jacob Toft. Toft was one of his first mentors, teaching Torres the ins and outs of cleaning and fermentation. Torres and his friend Sean Mitchell, who used to sell a lot of Paso wines in Southern California, would spend late nights barrel tasting. “I would always say how much I loved grenache,” Torres said. “He was kind of the one who really kind of fine-tuned my palate a little bit and really helped me with getting my own thing going.” Torres said that with a little help from his friends, he managed to purchase four

In 2019, Bodega de Edgar bought a new building that’s retrofitted as both a tasting room and winery, which is where Straight Out Of Paso is made. With Straight Out Of Paso’s downtown tasting room finally open, Torres said they have plans to start bringing live music to the patio once a week, now that COVID-19 pandemic restrictions are starting to loosen up.

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 no later than 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. PROPOSED ORDINANCE TO ADJUST WATER AND WASTEWATER RATES AND CONDUCTING A PROPOSITION 218 HEARING – The City Council will consider holding a Proposition 218 public hearing for the adoption of an ordinance for a new rate structure and proposed water and wastewater rates based on a comprehensive utility rate study conducted by an independent consultant. The utility rate study indicated revenues from current utility rates do not fully cover operating costs of the system and do not provide adequate funding for over $10 million in capital projects needed to improve our water ($6 million) and wastewater ($4 million) systems. In addition, there are currently no provisions within the existing rate structure to allow for the development of a supplemental water supply to assure the City can provide adequate water supply to all customers during recurring drought conditions. The City Council will consider implementing the new rates as a series of annual revenue adjustments over the next five years. A notice describing the proposed changes was mailed to Grover Beach water and/or wastewater customers or the owner of record of a property that receives water or wastewater services. Where You Come In: All are invited to attend the public hearing and be heard on the proposed adjustments in water service charges. Any owner or customer of record of a parcel subject to the proposed rates may submit a written protest against the proposed rate revisions. If written protests are filed with respect to a majority of the affected property parcels, the proposed rate revisions will not be adopted. A written protest must contain the street address or Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) for the parcel(s) with respect to which the protest is made. The protest must also be signed by the owner or customer. Customers may only sign the protest if they are directly liable for payment of the fee, otherwise owners are required to sign. Protests may be mailed, or hand delivered to Grover Beach City Hall offices at 154 South 8th Street, Grover Beach, CA, 93433. Protests may also be delivered to the City Clerk at the public hearing. To be valid, a signed written protest must be received by the City Clerk at or before the time of the protest hearing. Accommodations will be made available at City Hall to drop off any written protest related to this fee adjustment. Protest must be deposited at City Hall prior to the close of the Council hearing on this matter. For More Information: A copy of the comprehensive utility rate study with the proposed rates and rate structure is available at www.groverbeach.org under Departments>Administrative Services>Documents, Forms & Resources under Documents, “Water & Sewer Rate Study” (or go directly to: https://www.grover.org/DocumentCenter/ View/11257/Grover-Beach---Rate-Study-Report---3-1721) or call the Administrative Services Department at (805) 473-4550 during regular business hours.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this prop-

LEGAL NOTICES erty 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 automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. 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 (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION. COM, using the file number assigned to this case 092590-CA. 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 or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www.clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 092590-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Write an essay on “What I Swear I’ll Never Do Again As Long As I Live—Unless I Can Get Away with It Next Time.” Freewillastrology.com is a great time to acquire new imaginary friends or resurrect ARIES (March 21-April 19): Poet Allen Ginsberg despairingly noted that many people want more more more life, but they go awry because they allow their desire for more more more life to fixate on material things—machines, possessions, gizmos, and status symbols. Ginsberg revered different kinds of longings: for good feelings, meaningful experiences, soulful breakthroughs, deep awareness, and all kinds of love. In accordance with astrological potentials, Aries, I’m giving you the go-ahead in the coming weeks to be extra greedy for the stuff in the second category.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In her poem “Mirror,” Taurus poet Halina Poświatowska wrote, “I am dazed by the beauty of my body.” I applaud her brazen admiration and love for her most valuable possession. I wish more of us could genuinely feel that same adoration for our own bodies. And in accordance with current astrological omens, I recommend that you do indeed find a way to do just that right now. It’s time to upgrade your excitement about being in such a magnificent vessel. Even if it’s not in perfect health, it performs amazing marvels every minute of every day. I hope you will boost your appreciation for its miraculous capacities, and increase your commitment to treating it as the treasure that it is.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini poet Buddy Wakefield writes that after the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami of 2004, “the only structure still standing in the wiped-out village of Malacca [in Malaysia] was a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. I wanna be able to stand like that.” I expect you will indeed enjoy that kind of stability and stamina in the coming weeks, my dear. You won’t have to endure a metaphorical tsunami, thank Goddess, but you may have to stand strong through a blustery brouhaha or swirling turbulence. Here’s a tip: The best approach is not to be stiff and unmoving like a statue, but rather flexible and willing to sway.

CANCER

old ones. Guardian angels and ancestral spirits would be good to call on, as well. How might they be of assistance and inspiration to you?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “To hurry pain is to leave a classroom still in session,” notes Libran aphorist Yahia Lababidi. On the other hand, he observes, “To prolong pain is to miss the next lesson.” If he’s correct, the goal is to dwell with your pain for just the right amount of time—until you’ve learned its lessons and figured out how not to experience it again in the future—but no longer than that. I suspect that such a turning point will soon be arriving for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In her poem “Every Day,” Scorpio poet Denise Levertov wrote, “Every day, every day I hear enough to fill a year of nights with wondering.” I think that captures the expansive truth of your life in the coming weeks. You’ve entered a phase when the sheer abundance of interesting input may at times be overwhelming, though enriching. You’ll hear—and hopefully be receptive to—lots of provocative stories, dynamic revelations, and unexpected truths. Be grateful for this bounty! Use it to transform whatever might be stuck, whatever needs a catalytic nudge.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I hope you’re not too stressed these days. There has been pressure on you to adjust more than maybe you’d like to adjust, and I hope you’ve managed to find some relaxing slack amidst the heaviness. But even if the inconvenience levels are deeper than you like, I have good news: It’s all in a good cause. Read the wise words of author Dan Millman, who describes the process you’re midway through: “Every positive change, every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness, involves a rite of passage. Each time we ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”

(June 21-July 22): No educator had ever offered a class in psychology until trailblazing philosopher William James did so in 1875. He knew a lot about human behavior. “Most people live in a very restricted circle of their potential being,” he wrote. “They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a person who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using only his little finger.” I’m going to make an extravagant prediction here: I expect that in the coming months you will be better primed than ever before to expand your access to your consciousness, your resources, and your potentials. How might you begin such an adventure? The first thing to do is to set a vivid intention to do just that.

CAPRICORN

LEO

AQUARIUS

(July 23-Aug. 22): “Someone in me is suffering and struggling toward freedom,” wrote Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis. To that melodramatic announcement, I reply, good for him! I’m glad he was willing to put himself through misery and despair in order to escape misery and despair. But I also think it’s important to note that there are other viable approaches to the quest for liberation. For example, having lavish fun and enjoying oneself profoundly can be tremendously effective in that holy work. I suspect that in the coming weeks, Leo, the latter approach will accomplish far more for you than the former.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “One is always at home in one’s past,” wrote author Vladimir Nabokov. I agree. Sometimes that’s not a good thing, though. It may lead us to flee from the challenges of the present moment and go hide and cower and wallow in nostalgia. But on other occasions, the fact that we are always at home in the past might generate brilliant healing strategies. It might rouse in us a wise determination to refresh our spirit by basking in the deep solace of feeling utterly at home. I think the latter case is likely to be true for you in the coming weeks, Aquarius.

VIRGO

PISCES

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo novelist Agatha Christie sold hundreds of millions of books and is history’s most-translated author. While growing up, she had few other kids to associate with, so she created a host of imaginary friends to fill the void. They eventually became key players in her work as an author, helping her dream up stories. More than that: She simply loved having those invisible characters around to keep her company. Even in her old age, she still consorted with them. I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because now

(Feb. 19-March 20): “Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting,” writes author Emery Allen. “Not everyone is going to stay forever.” Her message is a good one for you to keep in mind right now. You’re in a phase when transitory boosts and temporary help may be exactly what you need most. I suspect your main task in the coming weeks is to get maximum benefit from influences that are just passing through your life. The catalysts that work best could be those that work only once and then disappear. ∆

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): We can safely say that Anais Nin was a connoisseur of eros and sensuality. The evidence includes her three collections of erotic writing, Delta of Venus, Little Birds, and Auletris. Here’s one of her definitive statements on the subject: “Sex must be mixed with tears, laughter, words, promises, jealousy, envy, all the spices of fear, foreign travel, new faces, stories, dreams, fantasies, music.” In response to Nin’s litany, I’m inclined to say, “Damn, that’s a lot of ambiance and scaffolding to have in place. Must it always be so complicated?” According to my reading of upcoming cosmic rhythms, you won’t need such a big array of stuff in your quest for soulful orgasms—at least not in the coming weeks. Your instinct for rapture will be finely tuned.
