Deceased shooter who killed SLO police officer had a mental health crisis, his mother said

C

aroline Wichman of San Jose said she tried to warn San Luis Obispo city authorities about the declining mental state of her 35-year-old son, Edward “Eddie” Zamora Giron II. After losing two jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, Giron fell into isolation and started exhibiting worsening signs of a serious mental illness, she said. In late 2020, Giron “disappeared” to Mexico for three weeks, which deeply worried the family. It was his erratic behavior when he returned to SLO, though, that worried them even more. “He started talking to himself. And he kept thinking that people were watching him, out of paranoia,” Wichman told New Times on May 11. “We couldn’t get him any mental help. We tried over and over.” On May 10, six SLO police officers served a search warrant at Giron’s apartment on Camellia Court in SLO, as part of an investigation into a series of recent commercial burglaries, including one at The Pad Climbing gym, Giron’s former workplace. When officers forced open Giron’s door at around 5 p.m., officials said he “was lying in wait” inside with a gun and opened fire. During the exchange, Giron shot and killed SLO Police Detective Luca Benedetti, 37, and injured Detective Steve Orozco before turning the gun on himself. At an emotional press conference the next day, SLO County Sheriff Ian Parkinson said he believes Benedetti is the first peace officer to be shot and killed in the line of duty in SLO County in at least 36 years. SLO City PHOTO COURTESY OF CAROLINE Manager Derek WICHMAN’S FACEBOOK PAGE Johnson called the incident “a tragedy beyond measure,” and acting SLO Police Chief Brian Amaroso described Benedetti, a 12year veteran of local law enforcement, as “a dedicated officer, a talented detective, a proud member of the SLO Regional Swat Team, and TRAGEDY Edward most importantly, a “Eddie” Zamora Giron II loving husband and (pictured) shot and killed father.” Orozco is a SLO police officer on expected to make a May 10, before taking his full recovery. own life.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE CITY OF SLO

Officials provided little additional details about the involved officers, Giron, or the ongoing investigation into the shooting, which will be conducted by the SLO County Sheriff’s Office and SLO County District Attorney’s Office. Parkinson said Giron had a non-violent criminal history of alcohol, drug, and property related offenses. He said that nothing in Giron’s file suggested a history of mental illness. But Wichman—Giron’s mother—stated otherwise. She said she made multiple attempts over the past six months to contact SLO authorities about her son’s deteriorating mental state. She said she requested welfare checks and even asked that he get placed on a psychiatric hold under Welfare Code 5150. IN THE LINE OF DUTY SLO Police Detective Luca Benedetti (right), “We tried to get SLO 37, was killed on May 10 in an officer-involved shooting.

In a letter to community members on May 5, Lucia Mar Unified Teachers Association President Cody King called the recall effort a “witch hunt” that would only succeed in wasting taxpayer dollars. “Through this global pandemic the entire board has worked together to increase services for students and families while keeping

students, staff, and the community safe,” King wrote in the letter. “Everyone in education— from parents, teachers, classified staff, and all the way up to school board members—has put in a tremendous amount of sweat and tears to provide the best educational opportunities for students under tough circumstances.” NEWS continued page 6

News NEWS from page 4

Central Coast Families for Education Reform is a group of parents and community members that coalesced about six months ago with the shared goal of jump-starting school sports amid pandemic-induced closures. At a rally on May 4, the group announced plans to recall Colleen Martin, Dee Santos, and Donald Stewart, three Lucia Mar board members who Central Coast Families said failed to advocate for earlier returns to in-person learning. But King, a physical education teacher at Nipomo High School, said Lucia Mar’s board can’t be blamed for the impacts of stay-at-home orders, school closures, and other safety regulations that were in effect for months throughout the county and state. “A lot of these parents talk about student needs, and it costs money to pay for services,” King told New Times, adding that a recall election would cost the district an estimated $350,000. “Spending a bunch of money on a special election doesn’t seem like a good use of those resources.” Board members faced unparalleled circumstances this school year, King said, requiring them to take the safety of students, staff, faculty, and the whole community into consideration. While many parents wanted their kids back in school earlier on in the pandemic, others didn’t. The same goes for teachers and staff. At the May 4 Central Coast Families rally, several parents said the Lucia Mar Teachers Association played a major role in the board’s decisions regarding distance learning. Some insinuated that teachers prefer the ease of working from home. Although the Teachers Association did push for a slower return to inperson classes, King said that was due strictly to safety concerns. The union represents around 500 teachers and specialist staff, many who have health conditions that put them at a higher risk of serious illness or even death due to COVID-19. Just like students, some teachers also live with elderly or highrisk family members. “We’ve really advocated for teachers to have the right to a safe work space,” King said. Still, Central Coast Families claims that the board members in question could have done more to get students back into their classrooms sooner, and the recall effort is gaining support. As of May 12, the Central Coast Families for Education Reform had 972 members on Facebook. Shannon Galvan, president of the group, said 100 volunteers signed up to help petition in the first three days the group’s website was live. Now they have around 130 volunteers, she said. “We are currently working with the county Elections Office to get our petitions approved,” Galvan wrote in an email. “Once everything is signed off, we will begin gathering signatures. We will have 160 days to collect approximately 8,300 valid signatures. Depending on the Elections Office, we anticipate beginning that process in two to three weeks.” —Kasey Bubnash

Local nonprofit successfully preserves Morro Bay open space

The Morro Bay Open Space Alliance purchased Cerrito Peak, also known as Eagle Rock, from the city of Morro Bay in April, a move that will preserve the open space for residents and visitors alike. During the May 11 Morro Bay City Council meeting, nonprofit co-chair Glenn Silloway spoke during public comment, saying that the Alliance had finally finished its project to conserve Eagle Rock by recording a conservation easement agreement with the city on the property’s deed. “This will bind future owners to keep Eagle Rock as an open space in perpetuity,” Silloway said. “It’s finally a done deal.” Within this agreement, the city will retain ownership and continue routine maintenance of the open space. “Public use of the open space will contine as always, free and open to the public for walks, picnics, or just a refreshing pause in a natural place with stunning views,” he said. The Morro Bay Open Space Alliance started working to secure the open space after the Morro Bay City Council voted to purchase it with the city’s general fund emergency reserve in 2017. The city purchased the $350,000 space with the intention of selling the property to a nonprofit for permanent open space preservation. Since then, the nonprofit has raised $265,000 to pay the city for the conservation easement agreement. Among the several board members and “super volunteers” Silloway thanked, he gave a special thanks to nonprofit Finance Chair Nicole Dorfman and her team. Dorfman’s team garnered contributions from 175 neighbors, supporters, local foundations, and businesses, which Silloway said “says a lot of good things about Morro Bay.” Silloway told New Times that he’s very proud of the small, all-volunteer organization that worked really hard to connect with and promote Eagle Rock as an open space. Eagle Rock, he said, is in the middle of South Morro Bay near the ocean and it’s part of the same volcanic system that produced the Nine Sisters, including Morro Rock. The peak also has cultural significance, as the nonprofit learned of its listing on the Native American Heritage Commission’s Sacred Land Inventory along with the remains of a rock that was used to grind acorns. “It’s a wonderful place to keep,” he said. The preservation project has come a long way from the city’s initial controversial move to approve construction of a home on the peak in 2011. Morro Bay previously approved plans for the construction project, however a local nonprofit, Save the Park, filed a lawsuit against the city in 2012 for not properly conducting an environmental review of the project site. The lawsuit stated that the eucalyptuscovered peak is a scenic landmark, monarch butterfly habitat, and the site of archaelogical remains. Eagle Rock was used by the public as an open space, but the land belonged to Janne Reddell. The home was supposed to be for Reddell and her husband, however the lawsuit’s resolution would have mandated Reddell to conduct an environmental review of the

property. Instead, she reached out to the city to see if it would purchase the land and keep it open to the public. “[Morro Bay] has some very contentious issues, but when push comes to shove we get together and can make good things happen,” Silloway said. —Karen Garcia

Grover Beach approves tiered water rates

Recently approved changes to the water rates in Grover Beach are aimed at conservation, and they could lead to big costs for big water users. At a meeting on May 10, Grover Beach City Council unanimously approved a tiered water rate system that will bill high water users at a higher rate per unit of water, a change from the current system that charges all residential customers a flat rate per unit. City Manger Matt Bronson said the new system’s benefits are twofold: It rewards low water users for their efforts while also bringing in extra revenue to the city. “It does provide a financial incentive for conserving water,” Bronson said, “which is really important given our water conservation needs in general.” As it stands now, Grover charges all residential customers $5.95 per 100 cubic feet of water used, according to a city staff report. Through the new tiered system, residential customers who use less than 1,000 cubic feet of water will be charged $2.84 in fiscal year 2021-22. Those using between 1,000 and 2,200 cubic feet of water will be charged $5.87, and the biggest users will pay $8.97 per 100 cubic feet of water. Those rates are scheduled to increase gradually over the next several years. The city estimates that roughly 70 percent of residential customers will actually see decreased water bills under the tiered rate system. Higher water users and businesses, meanwhile, will see cost hikes that would add up to an estimated $101,000 in extra revenue for the city’s water fund in the 2021-22 fiscal year alone. Rates, however, may not continue to increase in coming years as currently planned, particularly if grants are obtained to fund South County’s Central Coast Blue water sustainability project. “Our water rates provide a five-year rate structure for the council to have,” Bronson said, “but each year the council would be able to enact a lower rate if the needs suggest having a lower amount.” City Council’s decision on water rates immediately followed its first reading of an ordinance that, if passed, would declare a Stage 1 Water Shortage, allowing Grover Beach to enforce water conservation efforts as the result of belowaverage rainfall this past winter and lower than usual water supply. Bronson said the consideration of both water issues in the same night was purely coincidental, “but tiered rates are an effort to incentivize lower water usage.” Grover Beach utility customers could have prevented the passage of the water rate changes, but the city received just eight letters of protest from the more than 4,000 impacted customers. Still, Mayor Jeff Lee noted at the May 10 meeting that this is a financially difficult time for many in the community. “So as we conclude this item I also do want to mention an item in the staff report, whereby if there are members of our community, whether they be residential or

business-related customers, we do have an assistance program,” Lee said. “If you do find yourself in trouble making or being able to pay your water bills and your utility rates, please call the city. We may have a program that may be of assistance for you.” —Kasey Bubnash

Paso Unified begins changing its board elections, lacks community input

The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District approved changing its election system from at-large to by-trustee-area in 2019, a process that started with two hearings and zero input from the community thus far. Paso Unified intends to transition to byarea elections by the 2022 election cycle. Under at-large elections, candidates must reside within the school district’s boundaries and are elected by all the voters who reside in the district’s boundaries. When the district transitions to byarea, candidates must reside in specific geographic areas within the district’s boundaries called “trustee areas” and are elected only by voters who reside in the same trustee area. The district is working with Irvinebased consultants Cooperative Strategies to gather feedback from the community, assess demographic information, and create a map of trustee areas for the district. The consultants will try to ensure that each area contains a nearly equal number of inhabitants; draw a map that is compact and contiguous and complies with the Federal Voting Rights Act; respect the community’s interest and incumbency; and take into considerations things such as school boundaries. It will be doing this through a series of five public hearings, two of which occurred April 27 and May 11. The two meetings were part of the premap design phase with a goal of gathering initial input from the community. However both meetings lacked public comment. Larry Ferchaw, executive director for the western office of Cooperative Strageties, said that U.S. Census Bureau data from 2010 shows 46,165 inhabitents in the district, approximately 30 percent of whom are Latino, 65 percent are white, 1 percent are Black, 1 percent are American Indian, 2 percent are Asian, and 1 percent are Pacific Islander. According to recent data from the American Community Survey, an arm of the Census Bureau, Ferchaw said that roughly 46,000 residents are eligible to vote. With that data, the map could be split into seven voting areas with about 6,600 residents each. “This information is used to see if we are able to create areas where members of protected classes are able to have an increased influence in the outcome of the election,” he said. During the district’s second hearing about the elections on April 27, staff said it paid for notices in two news publications, as well as put out information via newsletter, email communications, and parent bulletins. At that meeting, it received two written public comments. The remaining meetings will be on May 25, June, 8, and June 22. ∆ —Karen Garcia

Locals are raising money for an Atascadero family that had to jump through incredible hoops to mourn their daughter mid-pandemic

O

n April 15, Sarah and Norman Hibble received the news that their 24-year-old daughter, Anne, had died. Authorities said they’d found her alone in her apartment, dead of an apparent suicide. It was a total shock. With a single phone call, any parent’s worst nightmare suddenly became a reality for the Hibbles. The situation was made more complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which Norman and Sarah say had profound impacts on Anne’s life and ultimately played a role in her death. It affected her afterlife, too, making it costly and convoluted for the Hibbles to properly mourn the loss of their daughter. Anne was living in Australia when she died, and the pandemic has rendered international travel nearly impossible, even in the most extreme circumstances. Australia’s pandemic travel restrictions are unyielding, involving two weeks of mandatory isolation upon arrival and comprehensive COVID-19 testing. “I understand the reasoning for it,” Sarah said in an interview with New Times on April 23, a little less than a week into her quarantine in a government-run isolation facility in Sydney, Australia. “It’s just—it’s really hard that we’re back to say goodbye to somebody who was so depressed and isolated that she took their own life, and now we’re sitting in isolation waiting to say goodbye.” Now SLO County community members are trying to raise money for the Hibbles to help cover the costs of the trip and a memorial for Anne. While the online fundraiser is making progress, donations are still needed.

Not just a statistic

To the Hibble family, Anne’s suicide was totally unexpected. Norman and Sarah hadn’t heard from Anne in a while before she died, but that wasn’t unusual. Anne grew up in Australia and Atascadero, and she moved back to Brisbane, Queensland, a few years ago to attend college. Norman is Australian, and although he and Sarah have lived in SLO County for around 11 years now, four of their five kids were born in Australia, including Anne. Two of Anne’s siblings also live in Australia, and finding the right time to connect with a 17-hour time difference can be challenging. It wasn’t until after her death that they discovered she’d been struggling with depression. She was isolated throughout the pandemic, and she’d cut herself off from some of her family and friends. Anne came out as transgender around four years ago, and, though the rates of depression and suicide among those who identify as transgender are staggering, Sarah said Anne found an accepting community on her college campus. The entire Hibble family was supportive of her transition, too. “We consider ourselves very progressive, and Norman and I do a lot of volunteer work with GALA,” Sarah said. They both work with local burlesque groups, and Norman worked as a legal

observer at Black Lives Matter protests in 2020. “I think it just is so sad because for all of the work that we’ve put in, our daughter was still not immune from becoming a statistic.” The Trevor Project is a national research and advocacy organization geared toward LGBTQ-plus issues. In its 2020 National Survey on LGBTQ youth mental health, 55 percent of around 40,000 LGBTQplus youth between the ages of 13 and 24 reported symptoms of major depressive disorder. Roughly 40 percent of those surveyed said they’d seriously considered suicide in the last year, with more than half of transgender and nonbinary youth reporting that they’d seriously considered ending their lives. One in five trans and nonbinary youth surveyed said they’d actually attempted suicide in the last year. Though the causes aren’t exactly clear, the Trevor Project survey points to inadequate and inaccessible mental health services and hostile attitudes toward the LGBTQ-plus community as major factors. Among those surveyed, 46 percent said they wanted counseling but couldn’t get it. Six out of 10 LGBTQ-plus youth surveyed said someone had tried to convince them to change their sexual orientation or gender identity, and 1 in 3 said they’d been physically threatened or harmed due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. Over 80 percent of LGBTQplus youth said recent politics had negatively impacted their well-being. But those who reported feeling supported by friends, family, and coworkers were significantly less likely to attempt suicide. The same was true among trans and nonbinary youth who had access to genderaffirming care and clothes, and whose friends and family respected their pronouns. Still, after a year in COVID-19 isolation, Anne faced double the difficulties. SLO County Behavioral Health Director Anne Robin addressed the correlation between mental health issues and the pandemic at a press conference on May 5. After a year of anxiety, loss, and isolation, Robin said, it’s more important than ever for all community members to talk to their loved ones about mental health. Behavioral Health aims to facilitate those

conversations and promote healing through a number of free community mental health events planned for the month of May, including mental health crisis response training, a resource drive, and an Investing in Youth Mental Health town hall. Sarah and Norman hope that Anne’s death brings some awareness to the services available for those struggling. “I just wish the world was kinder and more accepting and that mental health wasn’t so stigmatized, particularly in these communities,” Sarah said. “I wish that people felt comfortable reaching out. I wish that more people would, even when it’s hard to do right by their friends, when someone’s struggling don’t just let them isolate. Call for help. Get the resources even if that person doesn’t want them at the time. “Because I’d much rather have somebody be alive and be angry with me for getting them the help they need than not be here.”

A helping hand

When Liz Gillingham heard about Anne’s death, she wanted to do more than just offer her condolences. Gillingham has known the Hibbles for around six or seven years. She met Sarah through a mutual friend—Anthony Allesmith, owner of The Prancing Chef—and they’ve been friends ever since. Now they’re both members of the same local dance troupe, which, in non-pandemic times, hosts performances that Norman DJs through his events company, Light and Sound. “This couldn’t have happened to nicer people and more welcoming parents,” she said. OUT OF THE WOODS Atascadero residents Norman and Anne Hibble and two of their five children recently emerged from a mandatory two-week quarantine in Sydney, Australia, and are now mourning with family in Queensland.

When Anne died, Allesmith coordinated a support system for the Hibbles, cooking them hot meals and ensuring that their farm in Atascadero was tended to. He suggested that Gillingham start a fundraiser to help cover the Hibbles’ travel costs to Australia, and she immediately put together a GoFundMe online. The goal is to raise around $25,000, funds that Gillingham said will go toward flights for the four Hibbles currently living in the U.S., the mandatory government quarantine in Australia, and Anne’s funeral. Tickets to Australia cost around $4,000 per person right now, Gillingham said. The Hibbles had to apply to travel to Australia mid-pandemic, arrange for their kids to travel without Australian passports (theirs had expired), and had to get COVID-19 tests for each member of the family. Once they arrived in Sydney in late April, the four of them went into quarantine in a small government apartment. They weren’t allowed to step out of their room for two weeks, meals were delivered, and they’ll ultimately be responsible for the cost of room and board—around $5,000 Australian dollars. So far the GoFundMe has raised nearly $13,000, which Gillingham said was enough to cover the Hibbles’ trip to Australia. Now they need more to get back.

Remembering Anne

Anne wasn’t just trans. She’s not just a number on a graph about rates of suicide among LGBTQ youth. Anne was a beloved daughter and sister and friend. She was gentle and kind to everyone—the type of person who could connect with anyone over almost anything. One day she’d play made-up games on the farm with her younger siblings. The next she’d play cribbage with an elderly couple who lived down the road. She was also a proud gaming nerd who thrived in computer sciences and programming. She loved LARPing and cosplay, a frequenter of Renaissance fairs and the Sacramento Comic-Con. She was always a star student, getting straight A’s even in her college-level high school classes. She’ll be sorely missed—by her family, by San Luis Obispo County, by Queensland. What hurts most, Sarah and Norman said, is that her death was entirely preventable. Norman believes we can all learn something from Anne: You never really know what someone else is going through, what internal battles they might be fighting, where they’ve been. So be kind to each other. Show compassion, even for those you don’t understand. Above all else, he said, check in on your loved ones. “It’s easier to keep in contact with the people that you care about than it is to get through all the rigmarole of having to go somewhere to say goodbye,” Norman said. ∆ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

Stacking up SLO County will dismantle COVID-19 mass vaccination clinics in June as vaccine demand drops, rates lag

S

an Luis Obispo County Public Health Officer Penny Borenstein looked pained at a May 5 press briefing when a reporter asked for an update on the county’s progress toward COVID-19 herd immunity, five months into the vaccine rollout. “Locally, we are really falling behind,” Borenstein said. “The state average at this time is 61 percent of all eligible people, 16 and up, have at least started vaccinations. In our county, we’re more like 51 percent. ... We’re really not doing a whole lot better than half, and we want to get upward of 80, 85 percent to achieve herd immunity. “With the falloff we’re seeing,” she continued, “it really is breaking my heart to see that folks aren’t taking advantage of this opportunity.” Two days later, on May 7, Borenstein announced that SLO County would be closing its three mass vaccination clinics in Paso Robles, Cuesta College, and Arroyo Grande on June 4, due to declining community demand. A few weeks ago, SLO County expanded vaccine eligibility to all residents over age 16 and hit a peak in April of administering more than 10,000 shots per week, but that trend quickly turned in the other direction. During the first week in May, SLO County saw vaccine appointments drop by nearly 50 percent. The dropoff—which is happening across the country—has caused the SLO County Public Health Department to shift gears on its immunization campaign, focusing more on targeted outreach and mobile vaccine drives to reach those who are either hesitant about the vaccine or hard to access. “I understand there’s a lot of hesitancy out there,” Borenstein said. “We want to be open, we want to listen, we want to hear every piece of information. … The pandemic is not going to go away unless we all do this in the same time frame.”

Demographic differences

A bird’s-eye view of SLO County’s vaccine progress shows about half of eligible residents have received at least one shot—a pace that trails the state by about 10 percent. A closer look at the data—broken down by ZIP code, age, and ethnicity—sheds more light on where the rates are particularly high or lagging. An Avila Beach ZIP code—93424— boasts the highest vaccination rate in SLO County at 100 percent, according to May 4 state data. On the other end, the 93426 ZIP code—the northernmost stretch of SLO County that includes Bradley and the north shore of Lake Nacimiento—has the lowest vaccination rate at 27 percent. The next highest vaccination rate is the SLO city and Edna Valley ZIP code of 93401, at 69 percent, followed by Cambria and Harmony (93428) at 65 percent, Pismo Beach (93449) at 59 percent, Morro Bay (93442) at 59 percent, the Arroyo Grande area (93420) at 58 percent, and Cayucos (93439) at 57 percent. Six of the seven lowest vaccination rate ZIP codes are located north of the Cuesta Grade. SLO city ZIP code 93405 has a 31 percent vaccination rate—the second lowest. After that, the Shandon area ZIP code 93461 has a 34 percent vaccination rate, San Miguel (93451) and Creston (93432) both have a 40 percent rate, and Santa Margarita/Pozo (93453) and Paso Robles/Adelaida (93446) have 45 percent rates. Vaccine progress also varies by age. While only 21.6 percent of county residents 65 and older have not started the vaccine series, that number rises to 36.2 percent for residents between ages 50 and 64, and to 56.5 percent for residents between ages 18 and 49. Ethnicity is another factor that shows disparities in SLO County vaccinations. Eighty percent of Black residents, 76.4 percent of multi-racial residents, 66.4

Pet connections

I

n 2020, individuals all over the state took a leap of faith and adopted furry companions to help them endure the ebb and flow pandemic life. Colorado State University researchers released a report in November 2020 that found bonding with a pet during the stay-at-home orders reduced feelings of anxiety and depression. Survey participants were questioned about how their relationship with their dogs affected feelings associated with COVID-19, and nearly 70 percent of respondents reported decreased feelings of loneliness and isolation—60 percent of cat owners had the same response. According to the report, more than half of the respondents also reported that their canine and feline friends helped ease depression and anxiety and gave purpose to their lives. The Central Coast also experienced a record number of pet adoptions in shelters in 2020 as locals sought a forever family member and the positive feelings that result. To make the pet-adoption process even easier, Facebook group 805 Available Shelter and Rescue Pets assisted in matchmaking humans with new pets. Patricia Sly, founder of the Facebook group, works in partnership with shelters in Santa Barbara and SLO counties, group members, and other groups on social media to promote available pets in the area. The group focuses on pets in shelters, senior fur friends, pets that have medical needs, and “rehoming.” “We really try to highlight the dogs often looked over and get them into loving homes,” she said. Sly said she doesn’t want to take any of the credit away from the shelters and everyone who’s involved in getting these pets into their forever homes. She began volunteering with the Santa Maria Animal Shelter on Foster Road when she moved to Orcutt around 2012. Her duties included spreading the word on social media when there were available pets, fostering pets, and transporting pets to their future homes if the owners-to-be were out of the area. A rare arthritis prevented her from doing physical volunteer work, so in 2017, she created 805 Available Shelter and Rescue Pets to push her promotional pet posts into high gear. It was a way for her to continue her meaningful work. “This group literally changed my life in so many ways. It started off so small with a couple of my friends, but it grew to other volunteers, rescue and shelter staff, and trainers because we all use Facebook,” Sly said. Since its formation, the group has grown to more than 2,600 members. Sly recently went back to work full time, and 805 Available Shelter and Rescue Pets member Brooke Walsher helps post available pets, answer member inquiries for specific breeds of pets, and connects members with shelters. “By sharing posts from pet rescues all across the area in our group, we help those looking to adopt, find pets outside their neighborhoods,” Walsher said. “In the end, we are helping pets across the Central Coast find new homes and giving animal rescues an opportunity to share

more personal details about pets available for adoption.” Sly said she completely agrees, because the original mission of the group “isn’t about any one person, it’s about getting these animals into a home in a comfy bed as quickly as we can.”

Opinion BY SARA SEMMES

Inexcusable atrocity SLO County residents who voiced concern about potential vaccine passports are concerned about liberty

A

nyone listening to the April 20 SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting would have heard the members state their intention to ask Public Health Director Dr. Penny Borenstein about the use of vaccine passports in our county during the May 4 meeting. And during the May 4 meeting, Borenstein was indeed asked about vaccine passports under the COVID-19 update agenda item. On May 4, well over a hundred prerecorded public comments voiced concern over vaccine passports. In the midst of playing the comments on the agenda item No. 16, the COVID-19 update, the board interrupted the play of messages in order to move to suspend the right of the remaining messages to be heard. Supervisors Dawn Ortiz-Legg, Bruce Gibson, and John Peschong voted not to hear the remaining messages in order to “save time.” The following day The Tribune was hostile, mislabelling constituents’ comments as “spam.” Shame on them for demeaning callers with cultural slurs such as “anti-vaxxers’’ or “farright conservatives.” To belittle citizen involvement in the political system shows a crude lack of objectivity that The Tribune professes to attain. If The Tribune truly had interest in knowing what spurred people to call in, then perhaps it should have listened to the calls instead of dismissing them. Each caller articulated their motivation in calling: They were concerned with the privacy of medical information; they felt vaccine passports

HODIN

would be in violation of international, federal, and state laws; they feared vaccine passports would lead to discrimination and segregation. Some callers stated that they were veterans who felt vaccine passports were a threat to the freedom they had fought to protect. Some callers were in favor of COVID-19 vaccines but opposed to the possibility of having to show proof of them to access public accommodations. These people live in our county. They are our neighbors. They vote. They have just as much of a right to voice their concerns and be heard in the process as those who politically align with The Tribune. Their editorial utilized name-calling over journalism, further perpetuating the social divide. So much for inclusion and calls for equity. The editorial insinuated that people called from out of state. Such suspicions would have been easy enough to verify as each caller spoke and spelled their name. Once again, that would have been the actions of a responsible journalist. San Luis Obispo County’s Board of Supervisors expressed outright shock at the public outcry from constituents who called to voice their concern about vaccine verification systems. OrtizLegg referenced the COVID-19 update public comments later in the meeting by stating, “We talked for hours about something that didn’t matter.” Obviously it doesn’t matter to Ortiz-Legg, but she needs to recognize that it does matter to her voters. Notably, more public comments were left on the COVID-19 update than for the other agenda items of the meeting. My own representative,

Russell Hodin

Bruce Gibson, voted against addressing the topic in the next meeting as it would likely create the potential for a high volume of public comment to endure again. Remind me, who works for whom? On a refreshingly positive note, the board got the message that this county does not want vaccine passports. Supervisor Debbie Arnold made a motion that the following be placed on the consent agenda for the May 18 meeting: 1. The board write a letter of support for Kiley’s Bill AB 327, and 2. An amendment to add to the Board’s Legislative Platform opposing the state requiring vaccine verification in order to get goods and services. Peschong seconded the motion, and it passed 3-2 with Supervisor Lynn Compton’s support. The SARS-COV-2 virus has rattled us all, but we must not barter our liberties to assuage our fears. Such shortsighted actions made in haste are far harder to unravel than if their consequences were initially weighed rationally and with respect to legal and historical precedence in addition to common decency and fairness. Requiring citizens to display their private medical records to merit access to goods and services will result in a two-tiered social system. A community divided into those who relinquish their right to privacy, and religious and bodily autonomy for the privilege of access, and those who hold liberty foremost and are consequently denied access. A society of haves and have-nots, or, more specifically, those who have liberty without access and those who have access without liberty. This outcome would be an inexcusable atrocity that we must continue to be intent on avoiding. ∆ Sara Semmes lives in North County. Send comments for publication to letters@ newtimesslo.com.

Commentary Letters Have confidence in SLO County elections

The League of Women Voters supports making voting as easy and accessible as possible for all registered voters. We were disappointed in the May 4 decision by the SLO County Board of Supervisors to not expand vote-by-mail and early voting. We were pleased that the supervisors voted to increase funding for ballot processing equipment, high volume drop boxes, and mobile vote centers for the more remote areas of our county. The tone of public comment at the board meeting on May 4 was truly disheartening. We were dismayed to hear so much misinformation repeated and such hostility toward the dedicated public servants who maintain the integrity of our elections. We commend the three supervisors who spoke up for the county clerk-recorder and his staff. We regret that their colleagues on the board felt unable to support them. We urge all voters to educate themselves about the election process, and to consider volunteering at the polls to see the process firsthand. We also encourage voters to request permanent vote-by-mail status. This doesn’t prevent you from voting in person but it does ensure that you can vote if you can’t make it to the polls on Election Day. We continue to have great confidence in the integrity of elections in our county. Public trust in our democratic institutions is vital to maintain our freedoms. We hope that by educating voters about how voting actually works, trust will be restored, misinformation diminished, and participation in our democracy increased. Cindy Marie Absey Ann Havlik co-presidents League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County

The coming mess

L

ast month I wrote about the racist roots of the filibuster and the oppressive nature of its structure systematically designed to stifle legislation and keep our communities disenfranchised (“Undemocratic process,” April 15). A system created not to uphold First Amendment rights, but instead to oppress the people that it impacts the most. My fans in the comment section will be excited to hear that I am back this week to expand on exactly that—how a few powerful people are deliberately disenfranchising voters one step at a time. You’ve heard about voter suppression in Georgia, Florida, and Texas, but now it’s right here at home in SLO County. While most of our community members are hard at work following COVID-19 restrictions, providing the essential services our communities rely on, and keeping their families afloat during an incredibly challenging year, the SLO County Board of Supervisors’ Republican majority is making decisions to keep us out of the ballot box. While we struggle to survive, there is a quiet but overt strategy happening in SLO County to keep working people from having their voices heard and their votes counted. First was the decision to skirt state law on campaign contributions. Just weeks after the November 2020 election, the board majority rushed through a policy allowing for a $25,000 per donor ceiling on campaign contributions for county seats such as supervisor, district attorney, and sheriff, giving SLO County one of the highest limits in the entire state of California. This came weeks before a new state law, AB 571, went into effect that set the FPPC donation limit to $4,900 per donor, a donation cap that the majority of California had no problem respecting. During that November meeting, Supervisors John Peschong, Debbie Arnold, and Lynn Compton blatantly ignored an outpouring of criticism in opposition to this decision, exercising their power to squash small-dollar donors like you and me, with their knowledge that candidates with the wealthiest donors get an automatic advantage. Then came the 15-hour meeting on May 4. After hundreds of calls and emails and even reordering of the agenda to discourage participation, an exhaustive questioning began baselessly undermining the work of our elected county clerk recorder, questioning the integrity of our elections, and casting doubt on our systems, furthering rightwing efforts to scare voters with distorted information and blatant lies. At 11 p.m., in a 3-2 vote, the board majority voted once again to make it harder for the average community member to participate in their democracy. Though recent surveys show the majority of SLO County voters support permanent voteby-mail accommodations, Supervisors Arnold, Compton and Peschong made the deliberate decision to adopt the most limited voting model for the future of SLO County. Adopting a one-day voting model, they ruled against mail-in ballots being sent to every registered voter and did away with multi-day voting centers to constrict voting to single-day polling locations. And as a bonus, they went

a step further, directing their staff to explore getting rid of same-day voter registration and adding additional voter ID requirements. These are state laws aimed to make voting accessible, but here in SLO County, our leadership isn’t interested in that. Our county supervisors voted against the people they serve and are leading us backwards into the future. Though no one seemed to be able to argue why singleday voting was better, they deemed it best we go back to inconvenient systems and strike new measures that would ensure increased voting access and boost voter turnout. Making voting more accessible? Yeah, what a terrible idea. Next, SLO County will be redrawing its supervisorial district map in the once-a-decade process of redistricting. Redistricting in most places is done by an independent commission, but not in SLO County. Here, our county board decided it was best to skip assembling a citizens’ advisory committee altogether. They instead have tasked their staff with the project to preserve their own final say in deciding their districts’ boundaries. This process begins this summer, and based on recent decisions by this board, you don’t need a wild imagination to guess how this is going to go down. Voting for supervisor in District 4? Not for long if our board majority sees your vote as a threat to their power. Gerrymandering is the next big threat to our local democracy. Republican leaders claim they care about restoring confidence in the voting booth. But their actions have shown they aim to cast doubt on the electoral system and keep people who don’t look like them, afford things like them, church like them, and talk like them out of the process. Their goal is to keep us away from the voting booth, because they know that the more of us who show up, the more they lose. Want to change what’s happening? The future is in your hands. There is quite literally no one coming to save us from this mess. The impact from these decisions, and whatever happens next, will be profound and will last for decades to come. With a continued wave of attacks on democracy from the political right, there is no time to lose. ∆ Quinn Brady (she/her) is a community advocate, organizer and mother on the Central Coast.

The Shredder

Organized partisans

W

hy is it that far-right Republicans are more organized than the rest of us? Progressive-Dems have plenty of causes to push their desire for equality to new levels of activism. But all they seem to accomplish is protesting and talking. There was the whole controversy over Paso Robles Joint Unified School District board member Chris Arend—who believes systemic racism is a fallacy and yells at Spanish speakers because the district translator doesn’t translate very well—as well as some of Arend’s ideological cronies on the board— who are worried that teaching a high school ethnic studies course will unfairly target white students. (Insert eye roll.) These elected officials represent a school district that is majority Latino with a high percentage of families who speak Spanish at home. Did all of the outraged lefty-besties come together to get the district to hire a translator who can actually translate and organize a recall of board members so Paso’s Latino community can get better representation? Nope, nope. There’s the Cuesta College board of trustees, which actually censured board member Pete Sysak for being a racist, misogynist, demeaning dipstick on social media. Sysak also believes that racism isn’t actually a thing and felt super persecuted by the community members who demanded he remove himself from

office for practicing his First Amendment right! (Poor guy. Not!) And that was as far as the pushback against him went. No Sysak recall petitions in sight. But when it comes to school board members who follow public safety protocols and state requirements regarding COVID-19, some righty-tighties got their ducks in a row. Well, actually, just the first couple of ducklings have starting forming a recall line against three Lucia Mar Unified School District board members. But I have faith in the power of Gov. Gavin Newsolini haters to put their signatures on the petition line. The group of parents in charge of the effort, Central Coast Families for Education Reform, seems to be very organized, even having a press conference about the recall effort on May 4 and publishing notices in a local newspaper on top of sending out a press release! Seriously? Who’s pulling the strings? It’s not progressives, because the most organized thing those lefty-besties can do is protest. This group, which claims to be nonpartisan, is definitely anti-“the governor’s ridiculous guidelines.” Recall effort leader Shannon Galvan, whose kids attend Arroyo Grande High School, made her feelings about the district’s so-called safety rules very clear. Although her kids are back attending in-person classes, it’s just not the same. Her kids’ classes are empty.

Must be the school board members’ fault that a majority of kids have opted not to return to classes. It’s definitely not parents taking COVID-19 pandemic precautions. Group Vice President Michael Mulder claimed that theses three board members don’t support the best interests of students, in part because they voted against school resource officers on school campuses. Putting cops on campus is definitely the best way to show you care, duh! “For the past six months we have watched our school district go downhill,” he told a crowd of supporters on May 4 without a trace of nonpartisanship. Meanwhile, the district followed health and safety mandates, county guidelines, and reopened classrooms as quickly as it was allowed—all by unanimous decisions. So why pick on just three of seven board members? I’ll give you one guess. Yes! Partisan, partisan, partisan. If you say it three times fast, do the partisans disappear? If the group is successful in its recall efforts, the district will need to shell out $350,000 for a special election. “A lot of these parents talk about student needs, and it costs money to pay for services,” Lucia Mar Unified Teachers Association President Cody King said. “Spending a bunch of money on a special election doesn’t seem like a good use of those resources.”

Touché, man. King called the recall effort a “witch hunt.” Where have I heard that before? Oh! It was one of President Donald Trump’s favorite turns of phrase. Only in this case, it seems to appropriately classify what’s happening. Just like the California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA) seemed to appropriately classify the city of San Luis Obispo’s efforts to strengthen its tent and shopping cart ordinances. In a letter it sent to the city, it claimed the ordinances would further target and criminalize homeless individuals in the city. Well, City Attorney Christine Dietrich, took umbrage with that classification! In a response letter to the CRLA, Dietrich said that city staff does not agree that the ordinances specifically focus on unhoused individuals. Banning tents from public spaces definitely sounds like a community-wide ordinance. All those people putting up tents for a short picnic lunch ought to be ashamed of themselves! Oh wait, that’s not actually a thing. It’s unhoused individuals who need a private place to sleep who put tents up in public spaces, because they literally have nowhere else to go. As far as shopping carts go: Obviously, housed residents ride them around town all the time! Not. Dietrich also said that staff recommended that SLO City Council wait to make a decision on the ordinances’ final adoption while the city figures out whether the CRLA will make good on its legal threats.

■ JACKPOT: Imagine finding the 1970-D Silver JFK shown below worth the highest collector value on record in one of these unsearched Bank Rolls. At left, workers scramble to keep up with orders. There are never any guarantees, but California residents who get their hands on these State Restricted Bank Rolls will be the really lucky ones because many Silver JFK’s have nearly doubled in collector value in the last several years. Coin values always fluctuate but there can never be any more of these Silver JFKs minted between 1965 and 1970 and there’s no telling what they will someday be worth.

Last State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls go to California residents California residents get first dibs on last remaining Bank Rolls loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued Silver JFK’s dating back to the mid 1900’s some worth up to 60 times their face value for just the $19 minimum set for state residents - all other state residents must pay $57 per coin if any remain after 2-day deadline STATE DISTRIBUTION: A strict limit of 6 State Restricted Bank Rolls per CA resident has been imposed CALIFORNIA - “It’s a miracle these State Restricted Bank Rolls even exist. That’s why Hotline Operators are bracing for the flood of calls,” said Laura Lynne, U.S. Coin and Currency Treasurer for the National Mint and Treasury. For the next 2 days the last remaining State of California Restricted Bank Rolls loaded with rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued Silver JFK’s are actually being handed over to California residents who call the National Toll-Free Hotlines listed in today’s news-

paper publication. “I recently spoke with a retired Treasurer of the United States of America who said, ‘In all my years as Treasurer I’ve only ever seen a handful of these rarely seen Silver JFK’s issued by the U.S. Gov’t over 50 years ago. But to actually find them sealed away in State Restricted Bank Rolls still in pristine condition is like finding buried treasure. So anyone lucky enough to get their hands on these Bank Rolls had better hold on to them,’” Lynne said. “Now that the State of Cali-

18 • New Times • May 13 - May 20, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

fornia Restricted Bank Rolls are being offered up we won’t be surprised if thousands of California residents claim the maximum limit allowed of 6 Bank Rolls per resident before they’re all gone,” said Lynne. “That’s because the dates and mint marks of the U.S. Gov’t issued Silver clad JFK Half Dollars sealed away inside the State of California Restricted Bank Rolls have never been searched. But, we do know that these coins date back to the mid 1900’s and some are worth up to

60 times their face value, so there is no telling what California residents will find until they sort through all the coins,” Lynne went on to say. And here’s the best part. If you are a resident of the state of California you cover only the $19 per coin state minimum set by the National Mint and Treasury, that’s twenty rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued Silver clad JFK half dollars worth up to 60 times their face valR1031R-1

ue for just $380 which is a real steal because non state residents must pay $57 per coin which totals $1,140 if any coins remain after the 2-day deadline. The only thing California residents need to do is call the National Toll-Free Hotlines printed in today’s newspaper publication before the 2-day order deadline ends. “Rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued silver coins like these are highly sought after, but we’ve never seen anything like this before. According to The Official Red Book, a Guide Book of United States Coins many Silver JFK Half Dollars have nearly doubled in collector value in just the last several years,” Lynne said. “So just imagine how much these last remaining, unsearched State of California Restricted Bank Rolls could be worth someday. Remember, these are not ordinary coins – these rarely seen coins are at least 50 years old. In fact, these coins have been forever retired by the U.S. Gov’t, and you can’t get them rolled this way anywhere because these are the only State Restricted Bank Rolls known to exist,” said Lynne. “We’re guessing thousands of California residents will be taking the maximum limit of 6 Bank Rolls because they make such amazing gifts for any occasion for children, parents, grandparents, friends and loved ones,” Lynne continued. “We know the phones will be ringing off the hook. That’s why hundreds of Hotline Operators are standing by to an-

swer the phones beginning at 8:30 am this morning. We’re going to do our best, but with just 2 days to answer all the calls it won’t be easy. So make sure to tell everyone to keep calling if all lines are busy. We’ll do our best to answer them all,” Lynne said. “That’s why the National Mint and Treasury set up the National Toll-Free Hotlines in order to make sure California residents get the State Restricted Bank Rolls before they’re all gone,” she said. The only thing readers of today’s newspaper publication need to do is make sure they are a resident of the state of California and call the National TollFree Hotlines before the 2-day deadline ends midnight tomorrow. ■

What you need to know about the last State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls If you are a California State Resident call the State Toll-Free Hotline at 8:30 am : 1-800-958-0006 EXT: RJN1052 Are these silver JFKs better than other JFKs: Yes. These Silver JFKs were minted over 50 years ago and they are among the first JFKs to be produced by the U.S. Gov’t. The vast majority of current JFKs have no silver content at all and these Silver clad JFKs have 5 of the top 8 collector values of any JFKs ever minted, so there is no telling how much their collector value could be someday.

How much are State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls worth: It’s impossible to say, but the collector value of many of these Silver clad JFKs has nearly doubled in the past few years and there are 20 in each Bank Roll. It’s important to remember that collector values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees. But we do know they are the only California State Silver Bank Rolls known to exist and JFK was a President beloved by people of all walks of life so anyone lucky enough to get their hands on these Silver Bank Rolls should hold onto them because there’s no telling what the actual collector value could one day be worth. Why are so many California residents claiming them: Because they are the only State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls known to exist and everyone wants their share. Each Bank Roll contains a whopping 20 Silver JFKs dating back to the mid 1900’s. Best of all California residents are guaranteed to get them for the State Minimum set by the National Mint and Treasury of just $19 per Silver JFK for the next two days.

How do I get the State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls: California residents are claiming the limit of 6 State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls by calling the State Toll Free Hotline at 1-800958-0006 Ext. RJN1052 starting at precisely 8:30 this morning. When they do they are getting the only State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Rolls known to exist. That’s a full Bank Roll containing 20 Silver JFKs from over 50 years ago with some of the highest collector values on record, but it’s essential that they call immediately. Non state residents are not permitted to call before 5 pm tomorrow and must pay $1,140 for each California State Restricted JFK Silver Bank Roll if any remain.

Are we willing to put an end to escalating harassment and intimidation of our elected officials, or will we sit on the sidelines? Political violence is not a new phenomenon. Those seeking to serve in public office have always faced hostility. Now, as a record number of women and other underrepresented groups have made inroads into elected office, the reactions have become heightened and dangerous. The mix of the digital era, pandemic isolation and growing partisanship provides a powder keg ready to explode. With the growing number of women in office, the violence towards them is also rising. Violence against women in politics takes many forms including death threats, rape threats, sexual harassment, misogyny, disparagement, and sexist and racist abuse. These tactics attempt to silence and to force compliance. They aim to undermine our democracy by preventing true representation. From north to south and coast to inland, SLO County has seen numerous egregious acts against women candidates and elected officials. A razor blade in a tire, an intruder at a City Hall, a public commenter spewing misogynistic accusations, a letter to the editor containing a veiled death threat, a social-media poster slinging sexualized tropes. These are moments of abhorrent action, and they have lasting effects. Every generation is responsible for strengthening our democracy with equity, respect and fairness. It is up to us to be the change we want to see. We can be passionate but respectful in our dissent. We can be courageous but non-violent in our disagreements. What we cannot do is accept that political violence comes with the territory. Instead, we must make this behavior unacceptable. When we do, we will be able to encourage true dialogue, welcome diverse ideas, make space for underrepresented people, and ultimately grow the number of participants in our democracy. How can we make a difference? Demonstrate respectful public discourse. Be a constructive contributor in person and online. Call out abusive and inappropriate behavior. Support a candidate or elected official. Attend public comment, not just when you’re upset but also when you want to share a word of praise. And when your representatives share what is happening, make a public display of your solidarity. You might even consider joining politics yourself – apply for a board or commission, or run for office. Above all else, engage. Don’t let the absence of your voice be your complicity.

ow that live music is back with a vengeance, it’s time to support it, and this week there are tons of opportunities, so let’s take it in order starting with Thursday, May 13, when the SLO Vibes Trio brings its bebop and Latin jazz to SLO Brew Rock (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; free). Headed by SLO native and master vibraphonist Tom Brown, the trio includes Darrell Voss on the drums/percussion and Dylan Johnson on upright bass.

Friday, May 14

Get your Friday night off to a great start when indie alt-rockers Carbon City Lights play SLO Brew Rock (6:30 p.m.; free). The band’s newest album, Flame in the Winter, is an emotive juggernaut, and their music is soulful and potent. See them on the outdoor beer garden stage. Meanwhile up in Paso Robles, The Bonneville Phantoms will conjure the ghosts of Link Wray and Gene Vincent at the Cal Coast Beer Company (6 to 8 p.m.; free). If you dig Americana, rockabilly, and roots rock, this is your band, playing originals and select covers.

Saturday, May 15

Singer-songwriter and music impresario Steve Key will be joined by cellist Bob Liepman (who’s a member of Carbon City Lights) at Sculpterra Winery (noon to 3 p.m.; free) as part of Key’s Songwriter at Play series, which today will also include mini sets by Casey Rodgers, Paul Welch, and Rob Kimball. Key writes with a literary flare, and Liepman’s cello work is a liquid gold addition to any song. In Los Osos, Americana, bluegrass, and beyond band Cuesta Ridge is kicking off

The band has been itchin’ to feel the energy of a live audience and this venue never disappoints. To say that we’re stoked to open this concert series is an understatement.” The music will start at 2 p.m. with the

Cody St. James and Toan Chau Duo. Cuesta Ridge plays until 6 p.m. Jump in your ride and skedaddle over to SLO Brew Rock to catch Upside Ska doing their skanktastic show of old-school ska covers and killer originals (6:30 p.m.; free). Fronted by Eric Cotton, this is a big band with a big show! Think of Pozo Saloon’s Grateful Campout as your segue between Saturday and Sunday. That’s when Grateful Dead tribute band Rosebud plays two sets on Saturday (6 and 8 p.m.) and two sets on Sunday, May 16 (1:30 and 3:30 p.m.). If you want to hang out and spend the night jamming and carousing, it’s $20 a person to camp (register at pozocamping@gmail.com if any spots remain). The saloon will be serving up tasty chow and slinging brews.

Sunday, May 16

Amazing singersongwriter Ynana Rose will bring her lovely voice and lilting melodies to Tooth & Nail Winery in Paso Robles (1 to 4 p.m.; free). Bob Liepman (Take a break, buddy!) will join on cello and Paul Griffith on drums, but the star of the show is Ynana’s songs, which are simply stunning and also award winning! Over at SLO Brew Rock, you can get your soul jazz fix with The Mike Butler Trio (3 p.m.; free). Guitar, double bass, and saxophone combine to get your groove on in the outdoor beer garden.

Streamed from Cambria

The Cambria Center for the Arts is hosting a major virtual showcase on Sunday, May 16 (4 p.m.; free tickets at cambriaarts.org/Spring-for-the-Arts), to celebrate its planned reopening and to raise funds. Donations encouraged but not required! Starring virtuosic violinist Brynn Albanese, the program will also include a series of short performances as well as a preview of art, music, and film activities planned for the center later this year. “Due to the pandemic, our center has been closed since last March,” center President Mari Fedrow said. “But now, as conditions improve, we will be returning to a full slate of art exhibits, classes, theater performances, film, and other programming.” In addition to Albanese, expect a performance by Greg Gorrindo, an art demonstration by Jeanne Aird, a short film from the Cambria Film Festival, and much more.

Bob and Wendy’s next single

“New Cuyama is located very close to the intersection points of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Ventura, and Kern counties,” Wendy Liepman of the husband-and-wife folk duo Bob and Wendy wrote about her new song, “Fault Line.” “It is also earthquake country. In some ways we are all living on a fault line, our existence tenuous.” Bob and Wendy have been releasing one new song a month, part of an eight-song album to be released down the road, and this one’s flat-out beautiful. “We built this house in New Cuyama/ Perched upon the San Andreas/ Small town life without the drama,/ Hope the ground will not betray us// Living on a fault line oh this house has done some shaking/ Living on a fault line there are cracks in the foundation/ I would mend and not condemn.” It’s a song about resilience and learning to bend, not break.

SLOMA collaborates with Los Angeles gallery on new group exhibition, Atmospheres Deep

The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA) presents Atmospheres Deep, a new group show co-organized by SUPERCOLLIDER, a Los Angelesbased gallery known for curating immersive exhibits that celebrate both science and art. This multimedia exhibition premieres on Saturday, May 29, and is scheduled to remain on display through Sunday, Aug. 1. Richelle Gribble and Emma Akmakdjian served as guest curators for this exhibit, described as an examination of coastal regions above and below the ocean’s surface. Through a collection of diverse artworks, the goal of this show is to emulate the feeling of increasing atmospheric pressure during oceanic exploration, while also drawing metaphorical parallels to the psychological pressure “we experience in reaction to an impending ecological tipping point for oceans, leading to irreversible loss of the overall health of marine ecosystems,” according to press materials. On Wednesday, June 23, SLOMA will host a virtual panel discussion with some of the exhibit’s featured artists and curators via Zoom from 6 to 7 p.m. For more info on Atmospheres Deep, call (805) 5438562 or visit sloma.org. Sponsors of the exhibit include Hotel San Luis Obispo, PG&E, Pacific Western Bank, and Barbara Renshaw. SLOMA is located at 1010 Broad St., San Luis Obispo.

Both artists usually paint California-based landscapes and are active members of the Morro Bay Art Association, the Cambria Center for the Arts, the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, and other Central Coast arts organizations. Attendees of the pop-up exhibit are encouraged to make reservations for wine tasting prior to the event (no outside food or beverages allowed).

Morro Bay Art Association’s latest show taps into catharsis: pandemic emotions, Earth’s destruction, and peaceful reflection

F

rozen berry packages, Target shopping bags, and skinny Subway sandwich wraps are woven between the plastic squares of an orange construction fence. Suspended across the ceiling, it’s the first thing above my head as I crest the top of Art Center Morro Bay’s stairs. Already off balance from attempting to read the pandemic commentary art on envelopes strung end to end like too-high banisters along the stairwell walls, I gaze up with an open mouth as Morro Bay Art Association Art Gallery Director Barbara Sitar tells me to check out the woodwork that’s next to my legs. She runs her hand along a wooden bench with characters carved along its edge. “She invented her own language when she was a child,” Sitar says of artist Hannah Sadler. “She fills her wooden pieces with this language. It feels very ancient, sacred, when you look at it.” Centered in the upper part of the gallery, Sadler’s benches, tables, stools, and thronelike rocking chair anchor the environmentally focused portion of the gallery’s latest exhibit, Broken Nature, which runs through May 24. Sitar said Sadler salvages “unusable” wood from lumber yards, pieces that would otherwise be chipped into mulch or tanbark, takes them home and turns them into furniture. “Sit in the chair,” Sitar tells me. I do as instructed, taking a seat and leaning back. Across the room, Sitar’s giant mixed-media piece stares back at me. Depicting one of the oldest living trees in the world in great brush strokes of black, gray, and white, the more than 4,800-year-old bristlecone pine known as Methuselah takes her place on a canvas stitched together from yellowed images of settlers logging the giants that once populated America’s forests. It’s jarring. Beauty and destruction, together. A juxtaposition of the dueling realities that are human existence. Fires and flowers. Drought and abundance. Consumption and growth. These are the thoughts that Broken Nature is designed to stimulate in the onlookers who walk through the gallery. “Artists are actually placing a mirror in front of us and showing the devastation, but also offering alternative ways of living,” Sitar said. “It is something that’s rather an experience to come to this show, rather than just a gallery visit. And people spend way more time here than what we are actually used to.” People usually spend about 10 minutes in the gallery, on average, she said. But during this exhibit, some visitors spend up to an hour in the Art Center. Artists depict California wildfires, conservation, child abuse, consumerism, deportation, pollution, and the ocean’s garbage patch. But that’s only on the second floor of the gallery. The first floor focuses on human nature and reactions to the pandemic. “How we deal with our own broken nature, what is there when we tap into our psyche, so it deals with questions of psychological

disintegration and loneliness and lack of connection,” she said. “It also offers some rather apocalyptic visions for human beings.” Ami Lynn Ursey’s The Commodity of Fear and Rachael Wahl’s What Dies in Life Lives in Death offer similar images of that vision. Ursey’s shows a map-clad, masked man in nitrile gloves surrounded by a skull, social media symbols, a burning flag, and money, while crows pick apart a naked women draped over boulders in Wahl’s piece. Carla Steinfeld’s 9/11 Forever is a detailed alternative look at the dollar bill. Filled with bright colors, stark images, and various freedom flags, the Twin Towers reflect off the Hudson River behind the “ONE.” Pieces like these make a statement, Sitar said. “This is voicing an opinion. The art, rather than being a pleasing piece for above the couch, the art is intense, immediate, loud,” she said. “Pleasing art doesn’t push the world forward. It’s this kind of art that does.” But, there is also art that can be both. Phillip Carey, whose artful commentaries adorn the envelopes in the stairwell, collected all of the food packages delivered to his house during the pandemic and recycled them into a large collage of his Morro Bay home. A Self-Potrait In Pandemic Year takes up the window nook at the gallery’s entrance. “Because I have a great new transplanted kidney and am on immunosuppressant

drugs, I’m at the tip-top of COVID-19’s ‘death list.’ Since I have so much more artwork to finish in my life, the pandemic is real and serious to me,” Carey writes in a statement accompanying the piece. “Between February and December 2020, I had all the necessary food and supplies delivered to my porch. Unpacking the first 13-bag order, I decided to represent my sequestered year with a selfportrait made from all that packaging.” It’s beautiful and serene, but upon closer look you see a man behind two fences staring out at the world. Carey’s piece emulates peace and isolation at the same time. A detailed, intricate, whimsical self-portrait of a man stuck inside. “This is a true example of the loveliest recycling possible,” Sitar said. “It’s almost like a large, glorious puzzle. … This is consumerism, you see, turned into beautiful art.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham is into catharsis, chaos, and conversation.

nder the guise of searching for firsthand accounts of Sasquatch sightings in the wilds of Northern California, filmmaker Joshua Rofe follows journalist David Holthouse as he explores the lore of a Sasquatch that killed three farmworkers, which he recalls from his days working on a pot farm. He interviews fellow farmworkers and town residents, most of whom are reluctant if not unwilling to share any details of the world of cannabis farms in the Emerald Triangle, nor the people who ran the business back then. What starts as a search for a mythical monster soon transforms into a narrative on

the dangerous and deadly world of growing weed in this isolated area controlled by street gangs, neo-Nazis, and others wholly uninterested in mixing with society. The DEA raids and destruction of their livelihoods left the town untrusting and quick to take extreme means to protect their land and its yield. The murder of the three men propels the storyline, and what we learn is that all of Mendocino County is not the hippie-loving NorCal that many envision. Instead it’s a forest of redwoods that houses deep-seated racism and shoot-first-ask-questions-later mentalities. I bet a lot of people go into this series thinking they’re going to follow some kookie Bigfoot believers around to look at footprints, which is where this journey starts but certainly not where it ends. I found it a fascinating look at a world just outside of eyesight, a dark and dismal dive into what really happens up in those hills. (three episodes totaling 138 min.) —Anna

This may not be Ritchie’s best, but for action and revenge flick fans, this is essential viewing. Anna It’s so fun to be in the theater again, and this movie is a great one on the big screen. It’s loud and chaotic and perfect to recline in wide comfort while immersed in the spectacle of it all. Ritchie knows what he’s doing and always delivers. Like you said, this may not be his best, but that doesn’t make it bad—it’s a rip-roaring ride, and even though we learn that H may not be a model Eagle Scout, we’re still rooting for him to win. The eye into the heist team is really interesting as well—a group of ex-soldiers who listen to their “Sarge,” played by Jeffrey Donovan. In that mix is Jan, played by Scott Eastwood, who’s looking more and more like his pops every day. His character is one you loathe off the bat; he does a great job at playing the cold and calculated loose cannon of the group. Maybe it’s just the joy of seeing something on an actual movie screen that is giving this a little extra special love in my heart, but I had a blast with this flick. It’s dirty and gritty, and the cast is kicking ass and taking names. If you need an excuse to celebrate your COVID-19 vaccine, get into that theater and enjoy the action-packed ride Wrath of Man takes you on. Δ

ilmmaker Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) helms this four-part series that reexamines Western civilization and its path to the New World, revealing the truth behind our history rather than the whitewashed version we’ve told ourselves. With brutal clarity, Peck demonstrates the reality of colonialism, genocide of indigenous people, and slavery … and the white supremacist philosophy the United States was founded upon.

Using reenactments with Josh Hartnett starring as the representative “White Man,” we see the conquest of a continent from the perspective of those murdered, displaced, and stripped of their culture. Peck offers the truth behind Columbus, the pilgrims, Manifest Destiny, the Alamo, and other lies we tell ourselves to rationalize our ugly history. In the series finale, Peck explores America’s idea of being a democratic land of the free, musing how it might reconcile our shared reality of white nationalism and how it links to fascism, slavery, colonialism, and Nazism. I’m sure many viewers will paint the series as revisionist history, but we’re the true revisionists. (four episodes totaling 232 min.) Δ —Glen

ellow-topped Jerusalem sage, white irises, and the first buds of lavender rustle in the warm afternoon wind flitting across Wolff Vineyards’ outdoor patio. Winemaker Jean-Pierre Wolff says the bees and other pollinators love the drought resistant and diverse flower garden surrounding the tasting area. As he looks out across his vineyard, he talks about the drought San Luis Obispo County never really left—as of April 30, his property in the Edna Valley had received 9 1/2 inches of rain. In an average year, he gets 22 inches. “I’ve got to talk nicely to [the vines] this year and say, ‘You’re not going to get all the water you want to this year,’” Wolff says with a wry smile. Beyond that, he adds, there’s also been less fog than is typically the case. He knows this because an experimental weather station stands more than 30 feet tall about 150 yards from us. In collaboration with the UC Extension, the station samples the weather every 15 minutes and records everything from temperature to wind speeds, humidity, and solar radiation, among other things. In 2021, he says, his practices will be different than they would be during something like an El Niño year or even a normal year. They have to be, which is why he doesn’t like terms such as “best management practices,” which often come with sustainability certifications. It sounds too cookie-cutter. “I view myself as a climate resilient farmer,” Wolff says. “It’s adaptive.” The core mission of his resilience is a commitment to sustainability, which Wolff says can be paraphrased as the three P’s: People, planet, and prosperity—treat your workers well, treat the planet well, and ensure the longevity of both the vineyard and the people who work for it. But his commitment to sustainability was something

that developed gradually over time. “It’s not like I got up in the middle of the night one day and had an ‘aha’ moment; it was more progressive,” he says. When he and his wife purchased the property 21 years ago, it was farmed conventionally—the previous owners nuked the vineyard with pesticide, tried to manage the creek at the property’s edge so it was as unobtrusive as possible to the farming side of things. “We drink the water, we breathe the air, we wanted to have a healthy lifestyle,” he says, adding that he and his wife also live on the property. “I thought we can really work long-term with being more in harmony with nature. The more I got involved, the more I research and read, attended seminars. … It sort of snowballed in having an increased level of commitment and trying to raise the bar increasingly.” His goals were to increase both the quality and quantity of water on his property and work in harmony with

nature to produce his chardonnay, pinot noir, teroldego, syrah, petit sirah, and riesling —doing things like depending on integrated pest management, rather than pesticides, to deal with detrimental bugs. Twenty years ago, not a lot of people were talking about climate change, and water conservation wasn’t quite an issue yet, but he says he got involved with the Cal Poly Center for Sustainability. With his background in agricultural, nuclear, and electrical power engineering and a Ph.D. in science and technology, his desire to learn runs deep. The more he learned about sustainability and farming with nature instead of against

it, the more he realized how little he knew, the more he wanted to learn. That thirst for knowledge is evident in the way he approaches water on his property. Wolff describes it as a three-legged stool that includes conservation, augmentation, and innovation. Farmers need to be smart with how they irrigate their crops, he says, and not do things like use an overhead sprinkler in the middle of a 90-degree day when it’s windy outside—“but conservation alone isn’t going to get the basins in balance.” About 10 years ago, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Wolff to serve on the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, so Wolff is intimately aware of the Central Coast’s struggle with getting overdrafted groundwater basins into balance as well as the issues facing farmers who need to water their crops. As he talks about stormwater capture to augment his water supply on the vineyard, he’s momentarily distracted by a mower cutting the grass along the road on a nearby hill. “It’s set way too low, so it’s hitting a lot of soil,” he says, which concerns him because it leads to erosion as well as disturbs the top soil, which can keep moisture and carbon in the ground if left undisturbed.

EMPLOYMENT

FLAVOR WRITER

New Times is looking for its next Flavor writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, press release-reading, food-eating, wine-drinking someone. We’re looking for that certain someone who can see the nuances that make a chef, farmer, or winemaker special— a writer who can tease the most out of an interview, a bite of food, or a sip of liquid. Someone who not only knows food, but cares about the people making it and where they came from. Flavor is about more than food and drink. It’s about understanding the work that goes into producing and participating in the chain that leads to your table and into your mouth—and being able to put that on paper in a way that’s meaningful to our readers.

the roads and vineyards on the hilly property are designed to help guide stormwater runoff into the lower fields, like a rice paddy, he says. The water travels from block to block as it makes its way to the creek and soaks back into the aquifer, reducing the amount of irrigation he needs to provide to those vines. As far as innovation is concerned, Wolff developed a sub-surface precision drip irrigation system. It delivers water to each vine via drip tube 3 feet below ground. “This eliminates evaporation, which is an important component of vines’ water losses due to evaporation PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM and transpiration,” he told me via email prior to our meeting. “The 2020 harvest produced the same tonnage [as] conventional irrigation with half the water use.” So far, the winery has retrofitted more than 8,000 vines as part of a DROUGHT replant program. RESISTANCE Pointing to a drip Retrofitted vines in line snaking into Wolff Vineyards get the dirt, he says irrigated at 3 feet the rootstock of below the surface, these newer vines helping the soil maintain moisture starts much lower for a longer period (at 3 feet below of time. the surface) than

a conventional vine. Delivering water deeper into the ground prevents weeds on the surface, which compete with vines for water and nutrients, and enables the soil to retain more moisture than it would otherwise. In September 2020, he picked his first chardonnay grapes off retrofitted vines. Those grapes were combined with chardonnay grapes from the rest of the vineyard, and the 2020 chardonnay was bottled on April 26. With tropical fruits on the nose and a nuttiness to the finish, the chardonnay is a deep golden color and has what Wolff describes as “the typical Edna Valley creaminess.” It’s creamy without the butter that aggressively oaked chardonnay tends to have. Wolff sees sustainability as an ongoing project, one that technology, education, and experimentation can only improve upon. The Wolffs have worked hard to restore the two creeks on their property and nudge wildlife back into existence. To prevent erosion by planting cover crops and maintain carbon sequestration by using a special plow (yeoman) that only minimally disturbs the soil. The winery is equipped with a roof that opens at night to bring cool air into the building, reducing its reliance on a cooling system. And there’s so much more. “These are all aspects that need to be integrated with farming,” he says. “It’s all interconnected, plus it makes me sleep well at night.” ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham is ready for more chardonnay.

WHAT: A request by White Oak Farms for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2019-00131) to establish up to 22,000 square feet of indoor (mixed-light) cannabis cultivation canopy within 27,500 square feet of greenhouses; a maximum of 5,500 square feet of ancillary nursery and a maximum of 5,500 square feet of ancillary processing (i.e., drying only) within the proposed greenhouses; a 2,350 square foot utility and storage structure for processing; and a 22-kilowatt-hour ground-mounted, grid-tied solar system. Additional development includes the installation of security fencing and equipment, water tanks, landscaping, parking and access improvements, and demolition of an existing hay barn. The project would result in approximately 72,000 square feet (1.7 acres) of ground disturbance on an approximately 40.7-acre site, including 6,558 cubic yards of cut and fill. A parking modification is requested to reduce the required number of parking spaces from 55 to 5. The project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 10150 Bar Bb Lane, Arroyo Grande, in the Huasna-Lopez Sub Area of the South County Planning Area. Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on April 7, 2021 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Aesthetics, Biological Resources, Energy, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Noise, and Mandatory Findings of Significance, and are included as conditions of approval. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning. org. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposed Environmental Document should submit a written statement and/or speak at the public hearing. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s).

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 67 FRESNO AVENUE, CAYUCOS, CA 93430 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust.

The undersigned or its predecessor caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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 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 092590CA. 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

LEGAL NOTICES 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.

Consider the possibility that substitutes and stand-ins may be just as good as the supposed original. OK? Don’t be too fussy about how pure or prestigious anything is.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I will love it if sometime soon you find or create an opportunity to speak words similar to what novelist D.H. Lawrence once wrote to a lover: “You seem to have knit all things in a piece for me. Things are not separate; they are all in a symphony.” In other words, Libra, I’ll be ecstatic if you experience being in such synergistic communion with an empathic ally that the two of you weave a vision of life that’s vaster and richer than either one of you could summon by yourself. The astrological omens suggest this possibility is now more likely than usual.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

(April 20-May 20): A fan once asked composer Johann Sebastian Bach about his creative process. He was so prolific! How did he dream up such a constant flow of new music? Bach told his admirer that the tunes came to him unbidden. When he woke up each morning, they were already announcing themselves in his head. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Taurus, a comparable phenomenon may very well visit you in the coming weeks— not in the form of music, but as intuitions and insights about your life and your future. Your main job is to be receptive to them, and make sure you remember them.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometimes people don’t like the provocative posts I publish on Facebook. They leave comments like, “You stupid idiot!” or “I hope you commit suicide!” and far worse. When I delete their messages, they become even more enraged, accusing me of censorship. “So you don’t believe in free speech, you jerk?” they complain. I don’t try to reason with them. They don’t deserve any of my time or energy. But if I did communicate with them, I might say, “My Facebook page is my sanctuary, where I welcome cordial conversation. If you came into my house and called me an idiot, would it be ‘censorship’ if I told you to leave?” I hope these thoughts inspire you to clarify and refine your own personal boundaries, Scorpio. It’s a good time to get precise and definite about what’s acceptable and unacceptable from the people with whom you engage.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I love unmade beds,” writes Gemini poet Shane Koyczan. “I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest. I love the look in people’s eyes when they realize they’re in love. I love the way people look when they first wake up and they’ve forgotten their surroundings. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds.” In the coming days, Gemini, I encourage you to specialize in moments like those: when you and the people you’re interested in are candid, unguarded, raw, vulnerable, and primed to go deeper. In my opinion, your soul needs the surprising healing that will come from these experiences.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Have you ever kissed a monster in your nightly dreams? Have you won a chess match with a demon or signed a beneficial contract with a ghost or received a useful blessing from a pest? I highly recommend activities like those in the coming weeks—both while you’re asleep and awake. Now is a good time to at least make peace with challenging influences, and at best come into a new relationship with them that serves you better. I dare you to ask for a gift from an apparent adversary.

CANCER

CAPRICORN

(June 21-July 22): Trailblazing psychologist C.G. Jung said his loneliness wasn’t about a lack of people around him. Rather, it came from the fact that he knew things that most people didn’t know and didn’t want to know. He had no possibility of communicating many of the interesting truths that were important to him! But I’m guessing that won’t be much of a problem for you in the coming months. According to my astrological analysis, you’re more likely to be well-listened to and understood than you have been in quite some time. For best results, ask to be listened to and understood. And think about how you might express yourself in ways that are likely to be interesting and useful to others.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What does it mean to “follow the path with heart”? I invite you to meditate on that question. Here are my ideas. To follow the path with heart means choosing a destiny that appeals to your feelings as well as to your ambitions and ideas and habits. To follow a path with heart means living a life that fosters your capacity to give and receive love. To follow the path with heart means honoring your deepest intuitions rather than the expectations other people have about you. To follow the path with heart means never comparing your progress with that of anyone else’s, but rather simply focusing on being faithful to your soul’s code.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The French government regularly gives the Legion of Honor award to people deemed to have provided exceptional service to the world. Most recipients are deserving, but a few have been decidedly unworthy. In the latter category are Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, as well as drug-cheating athlete Lance Armstrong, sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, and Nazi collaborator Marshal Pétain. I bring this to your attention, Leo, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to reward people who have helped and supported you. But I also suggest that you pointedly exclude those who have too many negatives mixed in with their positives.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 2010, an American engineer named Edward Pimentel went to Moscow to compete in the World Karaoke Championship. He won by singing Usher’s “DJ Got Us Falling in Love.” His award: 1 million dumplings, enough to last him 27 years. I have a good feeling about the possibility of you, too, collecting a new prize or perk or privilege sometime soon. I just hope it’s a healthier boon than dumplings. For best results, take some time now to clearly define the nature of the prize or perk or privilege that you really want—and that will be truly useful.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It’s a good thing when people are different from your images of them,” wrote Aquarian author Boris Pasternak. “It shows they are not merely a type. If you can’t place them in a category, it means that at least a part of them is what a human being ought to be. They have risen above themselves, they have a grain of immortality.” I love that perspective! I’m offering it to you because right now is a favorable time to show that you are indeed different from the images people have of you; that you transcend all stereotyping; that you are uncategorizable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have personal possession of the universe’s most monumental creation: consciousness. This mercurial flash and dazzle whirling around inside you is outlandishly spectacular. You can think thoughts any time you want to—soaring, luminescent, flamboyant thoughts or shriveled, rusty, burrowing thoughts; thoughts that can invent or destroy, corrupt or redeem, bless or curse. There’s more. You can revel and wallow in great oceans of emotion. Whether they are poignant or intoxicating or somewhere in between, you relish the fact that you can harbor so much intensity. You cherish the privilege of commanding such extravagant life force. I bring these thoughts to your attention because the time is right for a holiday I call Celebrate Your Greatest Gifts. ∆
