County law enforcement agencies aid SLOPD after officer death

W

PHOTO COURTESY OF SLOPD FACEBOOK

hen the news broke last week about a shooting that led to the death of one San Luis Obispo Police Department detective and injured another, community members and law enforcement officers throughout the county were devastated. “It’s one of those things where we look at our jobs and we think, ‘That could have been me,’” Grover Beach Police Cmdr. Bryan Millard said. Grover Beach police and other allied agencies wanted to do whatever they could to help San Luis Obispo police mourn the death of their fellow officer and friend. Using mutual aid agreements that allow agencies across the county to work outside of their jurisdictions— the same agreements that were used to increase staffing levels during SLO’s protests of police brutality in 2020—county departments worked together to cover for SLOPD in the wake of the shooting, keeping 24-hour watch of the body and taking calls for service in the city. “It was all about supporting the family and supporting the agency,” Millard said. On May 10, six SLO police officers served a search warrant at Edward “Eddie” Zamora Giron II’s apartment on Camellia Court in SLO, as part of an investigation into a series of recent commercial burglaries. 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. It’s tradition for law enforcement personnel to stay with the body of a fallen officer 24/7 until he’s laid to rest, and Millard said several Grover Beach officers worked overtime and, in some cases, over night to stand watch outside Benedetti’s funeral home. The memorial service is scheduled to start at the SLO Performing Arts Center on the Cal Poly campus at 10 a.m. on May 20.

In a small department like SLO’s, Millard said everyone knows everyone, and coworkers quickly become like family. That closeness is part of what makes the work here worthwhile, he said, but it also makes it all the more heartbreaking when tragedy strikes. Thanks to increased coverage in SLO from the SLO County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies, SLO police officers were able to take some time off immediately after the shooting “It’s important because we want officers to be at their best and be focused IN THE LINE OF DUTY Community members are leaving balloons on their jobs,” Millard said, and flowers outside the San Luis Obispo Police Department to “and they need time to deal memorialize SLO Police Detective Luca Benedetti. with the loss.” At a press conference the the county, will be responding to calls for day after the shooting, then acting SLO Police service in the city during the coming days so Chief Brian Amaroso described Benedetti, a that members of the San Luis Obispo Police 12-year veteran of local law enforcement, as “a Department can grieve and work through this dedicated officer, a talented detective, a proud tragedy,” Amaroso said at the press conference. member of the SLO Regional Swat Team, and Tony Cipolla, a public information officer for most importantly, a loving husband and father.” the Sheriff’s Office, didn’t have many details Orozco, who was shot multiple times, is on the specific staffing levels or costs related to expected to make a full recovery. covering for the SLO Police Department.

trauma for them. Children need stability. They have already been through so much trauma that bringing them onto a military base is not adequate,” she said. The group called on local leaders and legislators to be more transparent about this process and what this facility would potentially provide for the children. On May 7, Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin sent out a press release stating that in a teleconference meeting with federal officials he was told as many as 5,000 unaccompanied migrant children could be processed at Camp Roberts. “I expressed concerns about the impacts on local traffic, medical services, educational services, and housing. I was told that, if children were transported to Camp Roberts, they would not arrive all at one time, but in groups of a few hundred. I was also reassured medical and educational services would be handled on-base and would not impact local agencies,” Martin said in the press release. The mayor said he also expressed concerns about the needs of staff coming from out of the area and informed officials about the already

Yessenia Echevarria, community organizer and founder of Paso People’s Action, created a #NotCampRoberts caravan and rally on May 16 in which several community members gathered at the San Miguel Mission and drove to Camp Roberts to oppose the facility’s possible use as temporary housing for unaccompanied migrant children from the U.S./Mexico border. “There’s a lot of mystery, and it’s unclear what’s going to happen with the children,” Echevarria said. She said the group is firmly against detained children and the mistreatment of children in these facilities. Echevarria referred to recent reports of continued poor conditions at a Customs and Border Protection temporary overflow facility in Donna, Texas. “I understand [the impact on facilities] is why the children are moved around. But the more you move them around, the more it creates

tight housing market and the city’s reliance on local hotels for the tourism trade. New Times reached out to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for comment. The agency said it “will notify state and local officials well in advance of opening any temporary site. We have no other information to share at this time.” Camp Roberts is one of several facilities in California being considered as temporary housing for migrant children. The Long Beach Convention Center began housing unaccompanied migrant children on April 22. According to an HHS press release, children who stay at the convention center, temporarily called the Long Beach Emergency Intake Site, receive a medical check and are provided needed clothing, toiletries, food and snacks, as well as a safe place to rest. The site is slated to provide shelter for girls 17 and younger and boys 12 and younger.

SLO County to study leaving regional waste agency The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors took its next step toward exiting the region’s waste agency on May 18, voting unanimously to commission a $32,000 study that will look at the costs and implications of withdrawing. The move is the latest development in a fight among elected officials on the Integrated Waste Management Authority (IWMA) board over its 2019 ban on polystyrene products, including Styrofoam. “This IWMA … has taken on legislating, and that has become the problem,” 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold said. “That’s when I think it’s time to bring this governmental task back to each jurisdiction.” All five county supervisors serve on the IWMA board, alongside one city council member from each local city and a special districts representative. Formed in 1994 as a joint powers authority, the IWMA manages hazardous waste, universal waste, solid waste, green/food waste, and recycling for the entire county. Last month, a narrow majority of the IWMA board tried to repeal its polystyrene ordinance, which it passed in 2019 but never implemented due to COVID-19. The motion failed when SLO City Councilmember Jan Marx cited a bylaw that allows any board member to request a supermajority (two-thirds) vote. “It’s really, in my opinion, a very good ordinance,” Marx told New Times about the ban. “It will eventually reduce the amount of plastic that’s in the environment.” Polystyrene, used for decades as a packaging material in various industries, is a growing target of regulation across the country. The chemical compound, which is often unrecyclable, is classified as a probable carcinogen by the World

Health Organization and known for polluting the environment after breaking up into tiny pieces. In the wake of the failed repeal of the ordinance, SLO County supervisors Arnold, Lynn Compton (4th District), and John Peschong (1st District) initiated the possibility of withdrawing the county from the IWMA—so it’s “not being controlled by other cities,” Compton said. Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson and 3rd District Supervisor Dawn Ortiz-Legg strongly oppose that direction, but joined in with the majority on May 18 to support a study. “I think it’s important to have the details of the consequences of this poor idea,” Gibson said. According to Arnold, the backlash against the IWMA isn’t about polystyrene, but about the IWMA overstepping its role by creating new regulations that aren’t state laws yet—and forcing them onto every local community. Arnold said she thinks the SLO County Public Works Department can handle waste services for the county “just fine.” “Meeting with the haulers, they are very confident this can be smoothed out and streamlined,” she added. But Marx warned that the county’s potential departure raises all kinds of questions about how waste will be efficiently and properly managed in the region. She noted that the IWMA has taken on big public projects in the past, like its 3-year-old anaerobic digester, on behalf of the county, and a break-up would only complicate those programs. “The question is how expensive would it be and what the consequences are,” Marx said. “I have a great hope that the Board of Supervisors will decide that sticking with the existing entity is the most financially prudent and responsible way to go.” —Peter Johnson

Grover Beach to consider allowing cannabis consumption lounges

Grover Beach is one of the first cities on the Central Coast to consider allowing what some are calling “the next big thing” in the legal marijuana industry: cannabis consumption lounges. “On-site consumption is something that’s been gaining a little bit more traction throughout the state,” Grover Beach Police Chief John Peters said

at a City Council meeting on May 10, where city staff presented updates on Grover’s commercial cannabis industry. “Currently, on-site consumption is allowed in the state of California with some restrictions. It’s pretty common in the metropolitan areas such as San Francisco and Los Angeles.” Cannabis consumption lounges, like bars that serve alcohol, are spaces attached to cannabis storefronts where customers can use and try out recreational and medicinal marijuana products while socializing. Peters said they’ve gained popularity in other areas as spaces where locals can test out products and meet new people, and where out-of-state tourists can experience California’s commercial cannabis industry, without having to use illegally in hotel rooms or in public. There really aren’t many places in California for the safe and legal use of cannabis products, Peters said. It’s not allowed anywhere in public—in parked cars, on public sidewalks, parks, streets— and property owners can prohibit rental tenants from using marijuana on-site. “So for instance, if somebody is in an apartment complex, and even if they have medicinal purposes for cannabis use, and the landlord had already implemented a non-cannabis facility, by law those individuals could not utilize their medicinal cannabis within their residence,” Peters said at the meeting. “So they need to find somewhere else to utilize their cannabis product.” Grover Beach City Council previously discussed the possibility of allowing lounges in 2018 and 2019, but that progress was interrupted by the pandemic. At the May 10 meeting, City Council members unanimously agreed to consider the idea more seriously in the near future. “I’d really like to pursue that. I’d like to see staff come back with some information,” Councilmember Karen Bright said. “I like that we would be on the cutting edge. I’d like to see how we could make that safe for the folks who are traveling from the consumption lounge as well as for people who are just traveling the streets.” Transportation was one of several key issues council members said they’d need to more thoroughly consider. State law requires that consumption lounges are attached to existing retail storefronts, and Grover’s four cannabis storefronts are all located in the city’s industrial zone, where public transportation options are

limited. That poses a potential problem for individuals leaving lounges while intoxicated. Cannabis consumption—even in lounges—can’t be visible from public spaces, and state law prohibits the sale of tobacco, alcohol, and non-cannabis food and beverages in such lounges. That includes water, which city staff said is a big safety and health concern. Still, city staff said several local cannabis retailers expressed excitement over the potential allowance of lounges. Joe Armendariz is the director of government and public affairs at the Natural Healing Center (NHC), a cannabis distributor with several retail locations throughout California. NHC already has one consumption lounge at its location in Lemoore, and Armendariz said it provides a safe space for customers to test out different products and talk with knowledgeable “bud tenders” before buying in bulk. “And that can be very helpful,” he said, for both recreational and medicinal users. NHC’s dispensary in Grover Beach sits on a large campus with ample room for something similar, and Armendariz said he’s looking forward to further discussions on the topic this summer. “We’d be very interested in having a consumption lounge in Grover Beach,” he said. —Kasey Bubnash

Medical professionals tell personal stories about COVID-19, vaccine

More than 140 million Americans have received the COVID-19 vaccine, and as of press time, almost 75,000 SLO County residents were fully vaccinated and more than 11,000 were partially vaccinated. About 208,000 SLO County residents remain unvaccinated.

practices traditional Chinese medicine in Paso Robles. “We started a regimen of traditional Chinese medicine herbs and supplements to boost our immune system, fighting off disease, but I was very hesitant to get vaccinated,” she said. When Phase 1A allowed health care workers to get their first shot, Avery said she wasn’t ready yet. At the time she was on SLO County’s Vaccine Task Force representing the local NAACP chapter and collaborated with others to ensure that vulnerable community members would have timely and equitable access to vaccines. “The hardest part was prioritizing subgroups, when in fact, there were so many members of our beloved community that just felt that they were also at risk. At this time our active cases were skyrocketing and vaccine supplies were pretty low, so I didn’t feel as vulnerable as some,” Avery said. As the months went by, Avery said she started learning that many family members and friends had gotten their inoculation. “I’m taking my herbs and I’m boosting my immune system, but I hadn’t taken the next steps to reduce my risk of infection or to reduce the risk of passing on the virus to others,” she said. She wasn’t moved to get the vaccine until her daughter had to decide whether to get the tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis vaccine to attend an in-person math class—which her daughter decided to do

after a week of deliberation. “Thinking deeply about this … There is a disease here in our own country that my body has never encountered. To keep my daughter safe, my family safe, my patients, and my friends, I decided to do my part,” she said. “My body will incorporate this really strong medicine, and it will fight an even stronger pathogen.” Dr. Steve Clark, the medical director for Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, said he saw a lot of questions in the forum chat box about whether immunocompromised individuals can get the vaccine. Clark’s sister, who’s immunocompromised, immediately got the vaccine when it was her turn. She made the decision, he said, after witnessing the effects the virus close to home. Clark said he comes from a blended family of mostly adopted siblings and spent a lot of time on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona because his father is American Indian. When the pandemic hit locally, Clark alerted family members and tried to get the word out, especially on the Hopi Reservation. He lost an aunt who lived on the reservation to COVID-19 and said that several of his family members were infected with the virus. Dr. Kevin Ferguson, the medical director of pathology and clinical laboratory for Marian Regional Medical Center, told forum attendees that vaccines are effective at preventing hospitalizations and death. Ferguson said

when he was offered the vaccine, he was first in the line to get it. “The goal is to keep the community safe. You know, I had a very close aunt that died from coronavirus in a nursing home and it was very difficult for our family,” Ferguson said. —Karen Garcia

SLO detox facility gets fully funded, to open in late summer

In January, the Community Action Partnership of SLO County (CAPSLO) took a leap of faith: It decided to break ground on a new detoxification facility in SLO before it had all the funds to pay for it. Construction costs for the project, delayed amid COVID-19, ballooned 67 percent over initial estimates of about $1 million—leaving CAPSLO with a shortfall. Rather than wait for more money, though, CAPSLO’s board voted to forge head and hope that the needed funds would come through. “This has been a need for 30-plus years,” said Loren Leidinger, outreach director at CAPSLO. “We kind of took a leap. We basically voted to move ahead while we continued to fundraise.” The gamble paid off. On May 17, CAPSLO announced it’d received a $250,000 grant from Bank of America— bridging the final missing piece of funding. The facility, supported by a combination of state grants and private donations, is expected to open in late summer. “We’re going to be able to finish

construction on schedule,” Leidinger said. “Everything came in alignment.” The 2,660-square-foot center—officially called the 34 Prado Medically Assisted Withdrawal Treatment Center—is located on CAPSLO’s 40 Prado Homeless Services campus in SLO. Initiated in 2018, it will be the first of its kind in the county to focus on lowincome clients. The nearest comparable facilities are in Santa Cruz or Fresno, Leidinger said. When it’s completed, CAPSLO will hand the center off to the SLO County Behavioral Health Department, which is currently searching for an outside operator to contract with. Future clients at the center will be able to go through a medically assisted detoxification process for six to eight days, and then have the option to rehabilitate on-site for up to 90 days. Officials say the facility is urgently needed, as substance abuse continues to rise locally and beyond. More than 22,000 adults in SLO County (about 10 percent of all adults) are suffering from substance abuse disorders, according to CAPSLO. Local detox services are currently very limited. “For those without insurance, or who are on Medi-Cal, the challenge of withdrawal is daunting,” read a CAPSLO press release. “The 34 Prado Medically Assisted Withdrawal Treatment Center [meets] an articulated need expressed by the community, local law enforcement agencies, county Drug and Alcohol Services, county and local government, and other social service agencies.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

Cal Poly staffer behind this year’s Central Coast Pride ‘changed’ the university’s relationship with broader LGBTQ-plus community

W

hen Sam Byrd first arrived at Cal Poly three years ago to take over as the lead coordinator for LGBTQ-plus campus life, a position that had been vacant for several years, Byrd realized right away what their mission and focus needed to be. It went beyond the confines of the Cal Poly campus. “I could tell from my interviews with students that they really wanted to see more strategic coalition building,” said Byrd, who prefers they/them pronouns. “Early on, one of the things we really wanted to do was to reach out in the community and be a stronger part of what was happening in SLO County and the greater Central Coast. So that’s kind of been my role.” It’s a role that Byrd has flourished in. Over the past three years, the Appalachia native is credited with building a stronger alliance between Cal Poly and the broader LGBTQ-plus community, through groups like the Gala Pride and Diversity Center (of which Byrd is now the vice president), and by stepping into various other leadership roles, from the faith community to local law enforcement. “Sam has really changed the relationship between Gala and Cal Poly, and has spent the past three years making this collaboration happen— making sure that the college is connected with the community,” said Michelle Call, executive director of the Gala Pride and Diversity Center. Most recently, Byrd’s efforts have gone toward orchestrating this year’s Central Coast Pride Week, which runs May 16 through 23. For the first time in its 25-year local history, Gala and Cal Poly are partners on the celebration and made the decision to move it up to the month of May, instead of July. The date change allows the Cal Poly and Cuesta College student communities to fully participate, Byrd explained.

DENTAL CARE IMPLANT SPECIAL

“My students had already been talking about wanting to partner and do something much larger in the county because, most of the time, students are gone during the summer,” Byrd said. “I think we’ve put together a really great virtual Pride for this year.” The new Gala and Cal Poly collaboration—which could become an annual staple—showcased Byrd’s ability to unite the diverse cross sections of the local LGBTQ-plus community, according to Call. And that’s a skill that Byrd knew would be valuable once they got to SLO County. “Working with this community can sometimes be like herding cats,” Byrd said with a laugh. “There are a number of different groups and identities that are housed under these variables, of sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. There’s a lot of great work that’s happening, but sometimes they happen in silos. ... I’m trying to be very strategic with how I position my role at the university and within the community, because I am able to see those connections and help form those bridges.” Byrd’s unique skill set is connected to their unique background. Growing up in a “highly conservative and religious” Appalachian community in North Carolina, Byrd wrestled with their sexual orientation and gender identity in a stifling and unfriendly environment. After attending college at Appalachian State, Byrd’s career took them to UC Berkeley, “one of the most liberal and affirming places I’ve ever been,” before Cal Poly. That winding journey gives Byrd wide perspective that helps them connect with all types of people and identities. “Navigating my own identity as a queer and trans person—and a person of faith—within those communities, it kind of always felt like I never fit in anywhere. I always existed in the

margins within every space I was in,” Byrd said. “It’s taken me many years to be able to synthesize and own who I am. And so many of our students experience that, so many of our community members experience that.” Byrd now encourages Cal Poly students to embrace their identities and to take on leadership roles at the university—no matter how underrepresented their identity may be in a particular field or arena. “Part of our strategic plan is to infiltrate every space. We need to have queer and trans leaders in every space on campus,” Byrd said. “I think that’s been a lot of our growth and success. We are curating and developing leaders in all of those spaces and connecting them to one another.” Those spaces and connections are needed throughout the county, Byrd said. In addition to being vice president at Gala, Byrd participates in the SLO Police Department’s Community and Policing Together initiative and works closely with the Community Foundation of SLO

County—trying to advance LGBTQ issues wherever they can. “[SLO County] needs a stronger, more outward-facing form of acceptance and inclusion,” Byrd said. “We need more queer spaces where folks can feel a sense of community. We need more visibility for queer and trans events.” Byrd is also very active in the local faith community, despite an oppressive experience with organized religion as a kid in Appalachia. Byrd said that while SLO County does remind them of home more than it does Berkeley, there’s a loving and accepting community they’ve found here—and exciting opportunities for progress. “I’m a very spiritual person, and I feel truly affirmed here,” Byrd said. “I love living on the Central Coast. There’s a lot of hope, and growth that I think our community needs to have.” Δ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Dave Congalton and Gala partner up to host monthly talk radio segment addressing LGBTQ issues

A

t a meeting on March 3, 1992, the San Luis Obispo City Council discussed an ordinance that would have prohibited discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment, housing, and businesses throughout the city. Of the roughly 130 county residents who shared their thoughts at that meeting, about 50 opposed the proposal. The heated conversation ended with council members voting 3-2 to hold off on any formal action, sparking a long and often explosive debate over gay rights and discrimination in SLO County. That was around the same time that SLO County resident Dave Congalton launched his talk radio show, Hometown Radio, which aired for the first time in January 1992 and is still running to this day. Thanks to SLO’s proposed ordinance, Congalton covered gay rights issues on his show almost immediately. He remembers thinking that much of the opposition to the gay community in the ’90s was based on stereotypes and that many of the arguments against nondiscrimination were lacking facts. He remembers feeling that he had to do something to help better educate his audience and the community as a whole. Congalton’s brother-in-law is gay, and Congalton said knowing someone who had lived through harassment and discrimination over his sexual orientation helped shaped his views. “That really opens up your mind,” Congalton said. Congalton thought it might help to put a face on the issue locally. He brought members of a local chapter of a national advocacy organization, Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), onto his show regularly. There, they discussed various gay rights issues and fielded questions from listeners. The segment tapered off over the years as the general public became increasingly accepting of the gay community. But recent conversations across the U.S. regarding transgender people—debates over whether trans women and girls should be allowed to play sports, what public bathrooms trans people should use, and whether teens should be able to access hormone treatments—remind Congalton of the early battles over gay rights. He gets a lot of gender-related questions on his show, he said, and he hears a lot of stereotypes and misinformation. So Congalton is bringing back the LGBTQ-focused segment, this time with two representatives of the SLO-based Gala Pride and Diversity Center. “This is really important that we have this conversation,” Congalton said. “It’s kind of, for me, like going back to my roots.”

ON THE AIR Gala Pride and Diversity Center Executive Director Michelle Call (left) and Center Coordinator Serrina Ruggles (right) will be recurring guests on Dave Congalton’s monthly talk radio segment regarding LGBTQ-plus issues.

Congalton invited Michelle Call, Gala’s executive director, and Serrina Ruggles, Gala’s center coordinator, onto Hometown Radio on March 5, where they discussed the Equal Rights Amendment, transgender rights, and fielded live questions from listeners. They hope to do similar segments once a month for the foreseeable future. “It is clear from previous conversations and broadcasts that many of you have different opinions when it comes to transgender issues,” Congalton said to his listeners on March 5. “But I also submit that, with respect, I think a lot of you need to be a little bit more educated. And before you start yelling at the radio, I include myself in that list. I think that I need to understand and educate myself more. And to the extent that I can use that goal and use this show to promote that goal, I’m on board.” Although Congalton is a left-leaning independent, a good chunk of Hometown Radio listeners are conservative. That gave Ruggles, who identifies as nonbinary and bisexual, some pause. They (Ruggles uses both they/them and she/her pronouns) weren’t completely confident that all the live phone calls would be respectful. But Ruggles was pleasantly surprised. Most of the callers just wanted genuine answers to their genuine questions, and Ruggles was happy to oblige. “I think that one of the really important things about why this works is because we are—often times in those conversations between conservatives and liberals—I think that one of the fundamental pieces missing is kind of the basic respect for the lived experience,” they said.

Hearing directly from a person with those lived experiences on the radio changes that to some extent, they said. And so far, Ruggles said, the local reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Call agreed and said that while some questions are tough to answer, that’s all an expected part of the education and discussion process. “In fact, we really want people to be able to ask their questions and that’s part of why we’re doing it,” Call said. “And similar to Serrina, especially after the last episode, I got quite a lot of feedback from folks who were saying that there were things they were understanding for the first time.” That’s the kind of response Congalton is hoping for, although he said he’s sure a number of his most conservative listeners just change the channel the second they hear anything about LGBTQ-plus rights. “I have no false illusions about, ‘Oh, I’m going to convert San Luis Obispo,’” Congalton said. “But they deserve to heard.” He’s encouraged, however, by where the county’s at with gay rights. When he first started hosting Hometown Radio, a significant percentage of locals didn’t even want gay people to have basic protections from discrimination. Now gay marriage is legal and sexual orientation, Congalton said, is generally “no big deal.” He hopes to see the same happen for the transgender community. The first step, he said, is talking it out. “I have an open microphone policy,” Congalton said. “People come on and they talk, and I let the audience decide.” Δ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

Coffee, but first family

You might also notice that their face covering is designed with a flag of their choice, such as the pride rainbow flag, the progressive flag, or the nonbinary flag. It’s a small way in which Shari and Karen Rubino make their coffee shop a safe space for LGBTQ-plus community members and the greater San Luis Obispo community. These are just a few of the steps that the Rubinos took to really create a family of employees, neighbors, new friends, and collaborations. And Skipper’s Brew is exactly the kind of place that the Gala Pride and Diversity Center was looking to support in the San Luis Obispo area. Michelle Call, Gala’s executive director, said that in the more than three years since she joined the organization as the executive director, there have been a lot of changes for the organization. Every January for the past three years, the organization’s board of directors meets to go over goals, reports, and projects. This year, she said, the board realized that most of the goals it created three years ago have been met. While reevaluating its efforts, the organization took into consideration the results of the Queer Community Action, Research, Education, and Support (Q CARES) Needs Assessment directed by Cal Poly psychology professor Jay Bettergarcia and a team of professors, students, and community members. The goal of the needs assessment is to engage with individuals and communities through community-based research to understand barriers to mental health care and develop innovative solutions. “[The report] told us that one of the biggest things that’s missing in [SLO County] is an LGBTQ-plus affirming safe space, such as a coffee shop,” Call said. Gala made it a goal to find an affirming safe space by the end of 2021. But as

fate would have it, the following week Karen reached out to notify Gala that Skipper’s is LGBTQ-plus affirming. Call immediately worked with the coffee shop owners and spread the word through Gala’s community forum and social media platforms. “Everybody was so excited to have CREATING COMMUNITY Karen (left) and Shari (right) Rubino cultivate a family with their two Skipper’s Brew Coffee House locations. somewhere to go and because we’ve all been so isolated in COVID-19,” she said.

Literacy equity F or years, the Monday Club of San Luis Obispo has partnered with the SLO County Office of Education on Raising a Reader, a childhood literacy program that sends local students home with rotating book bags, which also include educational materials to help parents connect with their child over reading. The Monday Club is a fixture in the program, fundraising for schools and sending volunteers to classrooms each year. But when COVID-19 hit, their work came to a halt. “We were going into the classrooms and reading for kids—that all stopped with the pandemic,” said Janice Crooks, chair of the Monday Club’s Raising a Reader committee. The Monday Club continued to raise money for the program over the course of the pandemic, but its members always wanted to do something more direct to promote reading. “Most of us are retired teachers or reading specialists. I love kids and reading,” Crooks said. Recently, they figured out a way. Entering into a brand-new partnership with the SLO Food Bank, the Monday Club is now taking in book donations from the community and using the Food Bank to deliver them to kids.

Every summer, the Food Bank provides more than 2,000 underserved local children with individual breakfast bags. Each drawstring backpack comes with three weeks’ worth of shelf-stable breakfast food—granola bars, oatmeal, cereal, shelf-stable milk, fruit cups, and more. Now, their bags will include a few books, too. “I really just got a phone call from [the Monday Club] randomly,” said Tara Davis, the nutrition and children’s programs manger for the Food Bank. “They were interested: Do you have a way to get these books to children you provide food for?” Adding books to the breakfast bags would be relatively simple, Davis said. They just needed to be grouped together by language and age level, and added to the bag assembly line. Pretty soon after that phone call, the Monday Club’s Equity and Access to Literacy program was born. “It just started rolling,” Crooks said. “It’s just been great.” On May 10, the club held its first book drive for the program, which drew in 1,000 books. The club plans to hold future drives on the second and fourth Monday of each month through July—from 4 to 6 p.m. outside of its building at 1815

“We don’t mind being the funnel,” she said. Given the uncertain future of COVID-19, the Monday Club isn’t sure how long this new program will remain practical. But regardless, Crooks said club volunteers are overjoyed to finally be getting books into children’s hands again. “This is more real. This is more satisfying,” she said. “We’re going to do it for as long as the need is there.”

Fast facts BOOKS GALORE The Monday Club received 1,000 book donations on May 10 as part of its new Equity and Access to Literacy program. These books will be delivered to local students via the Food Bank.

Monterey St. The club is requesting new and used books that don’t have markedup or torn pages and that are suitable for all youth age levels, and bilingual books are also welcome. “As many books as we can get, we can give out to kids,” Crooks said. The Monday Club plans to make its first book drop to the Food Bank on May 21. Crooks said the collection thus far includes some real gems, and she added that she hopes other nonprofits will join in on the initiative with their own book drives. She said the Monday Club can serve as a hub for a countywide campaign.

• Funeral services for fallen SLO Police Detective Luca Benedetti will take place at 10 a.m. on May 20 at the Cal Poly Performing Arts Center, and will be followed by a first responder procession to a private graveside service in Paso Robles.

The nearly normal As society shifts away from COVID-19 pandemic life, fears may still exist for some

L

ike bears coming out of hibernation into the blinding sunlight, some us in the more fortunate countries are emerging from our COVID-19 isolation to find a somewhat transformed existence. Our world is not “normal” in the ways we were accustomed to, but it is nearly normal for most of us. Vaccines are widely available, and a large proportion of us have taken advantage of that. The vaccines have done wonders. As pointed out by David Leonhardt in The New York Times, “The vaccines have nearly eliminated death, hospitalization, and other serious COVID illness among people who have received shots.” And even those who refuse to be vaccinated or cannot for medical reasons are highly unlikely to be infected by the vaccinated, although they have been advised to maintain social distancing, masking, and other precautions. Yet many vaccinated people continue to obsess over the risks from COVID-19, and others have developed an ingrained fear of unfamiliar people and places. As Leonhardt points out, “Coming to grips with the comforting realities of postvaccination life is going to take some time for most of us. It’s only natural that so many vaccinated people continue to harbor irrational fears. Yet slowly recognizing that irrationality will be a vital part of overcoming COVID.” My own relationship with a close family member has become strained due to those “irrational fears.” During the worst of the pandemic, New York City, where she lives, was hard hit. Every day she heard ambulances going by her apartment and local news showed jammed hospitals, overflowing morgues, and people who died because they weren’t able to access timely medical care. Understandably, my sister holed up in her apartment, had her groceries delivered, and then sanitized every one of them. She saw nobody in person, even avoiding a local trip to see grandchildren until long after the allclear signal to do so was sounded by the CDC. I thought that once she had her two vaccinations she would start venturing out … but no! She does a park run at 6 a.m., masked, but quit her gym, meets no friends in person, still has groceries delivered, has never gone to a restaurant (outside or in), and won’t go to a movie no matter how far apart the seats are or even if patrons wear masks. Our family has suggested she seek counseling, but this was met with a flat, “No way!” She doesn’t recognize that she has a problem. Her irrational fear and a lingering anxiety seem to hang on in spite of her being wellinformed by the CDC and other reliable sources of COVID-19 advice. I am left wondering how many others have developed fears that will linger

for months after the president’s July 4 deadline of getting the vaccine to all who are willing to take it. In another AARP Bulletin article, Oregon State University history professor Christopher McKnight Nichols said that just as the Spanish flu epidemic “led to a kind of awakening about how we assembled, expect COVID-19 to shake up the nature and personality of our public spaces.” In addition, it may have shaken up the nature and personality of people who have been through deaths and illnesses of family and friends, months of lockdowns, and restrictions on many aspects of public life. So I will try to understand my sister’s fear. And I hope that readers who know others with similar fears will be tolerant and supportive of the fearful and give them more time to adjust to the new “almost normal” that many us have wholeheartedly embraced.

Letters A post-vaccinated night out

Last night I ventured out for the first time in more than a year to one of my favorite San Luis Obispo restaurants in the Railroad District. Fully vaccinated, I felt it was finally safe. I can’t express the joy I felt when I walked in and my favorite bartender saw me. When I told him I had been fully vaccinated and he replied the same, we hugged a hug that has long been missed. I think we almost made some other patrons cry tears of joy. And we enjoyed a pizza also long missed. I had almost forgotten how good that food and friendship/ socialization is on so many levels. Thank you, Jeff. Thank you, Marco and family. Thank everyone who got vaccinated so we can start to return to what we miss so much. I’m looking so forward to experiencing our other wonderful restaurants in this incredible town once again. I’m very much looking forward to not being my own chef. Brenda San Luis Obispo

Words matter

Most media have failed to call the current political situation what it is— pure and simple racism. To continue to call the problem “The Big Lie” only serves to whitewash the real problem, which is not an allegedly stolen election, but racism. Because a certain cohort of Americans—the Republican base does not

14 • New Times • May 20 - May 27, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

want to accept the “browning of America” and wants to keep America “white,” it calls the election stolen. Contrary to those who describe the problem as loyalty to Trump, it is Trump who has pledged his loyalty to racists. Trump recognized this racist element, capitalized on it, and used it as a stepping stone to power. But the racists were here before Trump. The Republican base has not been taken over by Trump. Trump has been taken over by the racist Republican base who identify him as the one who can deliver their most fervent desire—to remain the dominant element in a soon-to-be minority white America, and the mainstream Republican Party is afraid of losing the base so it, too, has become racist. Words matter. The media should call it what it is—racism—not “The Big Lie.” Beverly Niles Arroyo Grande

Thanks for the local political coverage

Thank you for Quinn Brady’s opinion piece, “The Coming Mess” (May 13). Ms. Brady highlighted the actions on the part of our current SLO County Board of Supervisors to thwart a free and fair electoral process. Their decision to allow large campaign contributions, which will be largely funded by out-of-county lobbying groups, seemed largely pushed through under the cover of darkness. Their subsequent decision, against any reasonable argument, to limit voting options was a blatant move to quash votes. The upcoming “redistricting,” which will be conducted by their partisan staff, makes one despair that we will ever be able to have a truly representative board. Hopefully, in educating us abut this

situation we will be more aware and more vocal about our positions on these issues. We are fortunate that the New Times and The Tribune provide coverage of local political issues, so that despite the Board of Supervisors’ blatant attempts to push through these changes almost without notice, at least we are informed. Emily Rosten San Luis Obispo

A contradictory argument

In the opinion commentary “The Coming Mess” by Quinn Brady in the May 13 edition of New Times, the author begins by describing how the filibuster rule in the United States Senate is so horrible in that it denies the majority party in the Senate, the Democrats/ liberals, from controlling all legislation. The author seems to disregard that in the previous legislative sessions when the Democrats/liberals were in the minority they exercised the filibuster about 300 times in an attempt to kill or delay legislation they did not like. Then in the second paragraph and in the remainder of the article, the author proceeds to argue that the majority party, the Republicans/conservatives, on the SLO County Board of Supervisors should not be able to control the legislation, but should somehow allow the minority a more significant role on the Board of Supervisors. Does Quinn Brady realize that the article contradicts itself? I presume that in the author’s mind it all depends on whose goose is being gored. Ron Smith Paso Robles

ast week America was tested and found wanting. Cyber terrorists shut down the Colonial Pipeline system serving a major portion of southeastern states and reportedly collected a $5 million ransom. Some gas stations remain without fuel to sell, motorists still search for gas and wait in long lines just as we did 40-plus years ago after Arab states quadrupled the cost of oil almost overnight. Regardless of the smirk on the face of the energy secretary who commented that if people drove electric cars this wouldn’t be a problem, the fact remains that fossil fuels provide more than 90 percent of our transportation energy. People were financially harmed and continue to be hammered by escalating energy prices. This didn’t have to happen, and American corporations and politicians have been warned for years about the vulnerability of our energy/financial systems and every commercial activity reliant upon electricity and the computers that holds our civilization together. Peter Pry, the executive director of the EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Task Force and a member of the U.S. National Strategy Forum warned that what happened with the Colonial Pipeline was a test of Biden by the Kremlin. The Kremlin warned Biden some weeks ago when a crisis was developing over the Ukraine (Russia had deployed more than 100,000 troops on Ukraine’s border) for the United States to not interfere. Spokespersons for the Russian RT and Sputnik media groups said they could shut down Florida, Washington, or a portion of any city at will. In the event of a cyber war with America, Russia is much better prepared and more capable of inflicting massive, if not catastrophic damage on America. Pry believes that the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline by the Russian-based terrorist group, “DarkSide” (just three weeks after warning Biden not to interfere in Ukraine/Russian conflict) was a warning and demonstration to Biden of Russian capabilities and intent. Biden is being tested by a resurgent, aggressive Kremlin, along with other bad actors: Iran, North Korea, and especially China. The perception of weakness, indecisiveness and diminishment of American military/ industrial power and political commitment will be challenged in the near future, likely within this decade. Of growing threats to American national security, none is so chilling as the vulnerability of the electrical grid. A cyberattack shutting down the electrical grid for 330 million people would inflict total chaos and breakdown of society. Our grid is aging, vulnerable, and woefully underfunded for maintenance and hardening against external threats. We saw this in California when 100-year old power transmission lines started massive wildfires or when a winter storm in Texas left people in the dark/cold for a week. Those were localized events; a high-altitude EMP burst via ballistic missiles fired from North Korea, Iran, Russia, or China could darken the nation for a year or more. The EMP Task Force estimates that more than 90 percent of the American population would die from starvation or societal breakdown. Every electrical device would shut down, burned

out by a massive electromagnetic pulse. Cars wouldn’t start, water pumps, sewer treatment plants, computers, radio/TV would all be down. Everything electrical would be fried. Stores carry about a three-day supply of food; starvation would occur rapidly as there would be no trucks to re-stock food supplies. All emergency services would be out of commission. We’d be on our own; chaos would ensue. A key component of our electrical transmission system is the massive transformers at power stations/substations. Pry stated it takes 18 months to build a transformer, and they aren’t manufactured in America. With our economy devastated by an EMP/cyberattack, how would we contract/purchase replacements? A great deal of ink has been used extolling the “existential threat” of climate change, urging rapid conversion to an all-electric economy, foreswearing use of fossil fuels. Left out are unpleasant facts, such as wind/solar systems require the massive use of fossil fuels for their construction, even in their components, such as windmill blades and lubricants or the impracticality of private electricdriven transportation. We don’t have enough power generation capability to support such an economy, and we’re dismantling power facilities without consideration for the future. We have overseas commitments we can’t ignore, such as defense of Taiwan and South Korea. “Who cares?” says the isolationist? The bulk of the computer microchips that operate the hundred micro-computers in our cars and everything else are from microchip production facilities, and we aren’t building them here. The rare-earth metals used in their manufacture are mostly mined in China and Africa; attempts to mine them here are mired in legal battles. It takes two years to certify a mining operation. We’re chasing unicorns and pixie dust in our quest to build a perfect world. We’re facing multiple, real existential threats that threatens our survival in this decade, not a hundred years hence, the hyperbole of climate alarmists notwithstanding. We need to wake up, not “woke” with self-absorbed obsession, but return to the reality of facing a world filled with ravenous wolves that would annihilate our republic, if we don’t do it to ourselves first. ∆ Al Fonzi had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

Opinion

The Shredder

Politicize everything?

S

ometimes it seems like our country, our counties, and our communities are so polarized we can’t even agree on what time it is. We’re like a broken clock that isn’t right twice a day. It’s a sad state of affairs when fellow citizens can’t help but turn everything, every moment, and every bit of minutia into a pitched life-or-death battle for the very soul of our country. Last weekend we removed from New Times’ website all comments on our story “Deceased shooter who killed SLO police officer had mental health crisis, his mother said” (May 13, 2021) because the comment section turned into a pooflinging contest between conservatives— one in particular—who see anyone not aligned with their thinking as “alt.left/ BLM radicals/antifa anarchists”; and progressives who believe “oppressive gang-stalking sharks-cops” are waging an “undeclared, silent, bloody war on citizens.” Can’t you both be wrong? What happened was a tragedy, perhaps a preventable one where both SLOPD Detective Luca Benedetti and alleged burglar Edward Zamora Giron would still be alive if the situation had been handled differently. Instead, we have two dead over some stolen property and a battle between those who can’t see that Detective Benedetti didn’t deserve to die and those who can’t see that Mr. Giron did deserve help and compassion. The comment section of the story was hijacked by those who wanted to air

their lengthy, and often libelous and mendacious, grievances against the left; and those who wanted to use it to vilify all law enforcement and conservatives and paint them with the same brush as power-mad racists and fascists. What we should be discussing is how to prevent such a tragedy in the future, but when Giron is nothing but “pure evil” and Benedetti and those who ordered him to Giron’s apartment are unquestionable “heroes,” we get nowhere. If we could power our communities with our distrust, misunderstanding, and animus for one another, we could leave the lights on 24/7 and have juice to spare. It’s not just in SLO Town. Law enforcement supporters are having a meltdown over the removal of a “Blue Lives Matter” flag from outside of the Paso Robles Police Department after a neighboring county’s sheriff’s association complained online (“Kings County weighs in on Paso police’s removal of a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag,” New Times News Wire, May 10, 2021). “The constant caving to the ‘woke’ cancel culture sweeping across America is promoting lawlessness and fueling negativity toward our beloved law enforcement,” the Kings County post read. “The Kings County Deputy Sheriff’s Association sends their support and admiration to the brave men and women at the Paso Robles Police Department. Now more than ever before we need our leaders

to stand tall and support those of us who risk our lives.” Paso Robles Police Chief Ty Lewis removed the flag because he knew that for many it’s a controversial emblem. “I am aware that the symbolism of thin blue line flags is viewed differently by many,” Lewis said in a Facebook post. “Some view it as a symbol of law enforcement support, while others view it as a racist and divisive symbol. I leave it to each community member to research this controversial topic and form their own opinions. With that said, in an attempt to avoid any controversy and preserve public trust, I ordered the flag be removed from the light pole.” Naturally, like biting flies to political honey, the knives—and lies—came out, with some Facebook users posting that the flag was stolen when it wasn’t. A relentless ultra-conservative poster— do you have a job, dude?—condemned Lewis and his decision to remove the flag, claiming actions such as his “fueled criminality and mob defiance all across the USA” and “lost [Lewis] the support of his rank-and-file officers as a result of this woke stunt.” The other side noted it was “despicable how local white supremacist troublemakers are wanting to divide our

community by bad-mouthing some of our greatest leaders and public servants.” Hey everybody, you can support the police and not be a white supremacist. You can realize that communities of color and their allies find the flag divisive, just like some people believe the Confederate battle flag is about heritage and others see it as a symbol of racism. You can still be proud of your Southern heritage and be cognizant enough to know not to fly the Confederate flag because for many it’s a symbol of hatred. You can be aware that law enforcement historically targets communities of color but realize not every police officer is an unrepentant racist. It’s called being an empathetic grownup. We need to stop being so myopic. Your political opponent doesn’t have to be your blood-feud enemy. He or she is your neighbor, your fellow American. Are we all so infantile and bitter that we have to pick a fight over everything? Are we incapable of stepping back from our immediate knee-jerk emotional reaction to see a situation from another’s perspective? Because if we are so intransigent and truculent, so incapable of listening to our opponents’ views and considering them dispassionately, we are literally doomed. Here’s your weekly challenge, whether on the left or right: When next you’re triggered, breathe. ∆ The Shredder promises to work on itself to be more broadminded.

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. This is a freelance position with weekly deadlines. Think you have what it takes? Prove it. Send a résumé, cover letter, and story samples to Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com. New Times Media Group is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

The Little Lizzy Combo delivers the goods

ANGEL PIPES Stellar jazz vocalist Lizzy Shapiro of Lizzy and the Triggermen will offer a livestream concert with a smaller band dubbed The Little Lizzy Combo through the auspices of the Basin Street Regulars on May 23.

T

here’s something undeniably glamorous about The Roaring ’20s and the Speakeasy Age of the ’30s, and that glamour and excitement is perfectly captured by Lizzy and the Triggermen, dubbed “10-piece jazz sensations” by the LA Weekly and “one of the hottest swing bands in LA” by Good Day LA. This Sunday, May 23, you won’t get the whole band, but you will get frontwoman Lizzy Shapiro in small combo form with Dan Barrett (trombone), Nate Ketner (reeds), Sam Rocha (bass), Gareth Price (drums), and Jason Wanner (piano), billed as The Little Lizzy Combo and streaming live courtesy of the Basin Street Regulars (2 p.m., available on facebook.com/BasinStreetRegulars and YouTube through the pismojazz.com website; donations accepted for this free event at paypal.me/BasinStreetRegulars). Lizzy and her band, in classic ’30s fashion, got their start playing a secret word-of-mouth LA club, but soon they were headlining big clubs like The Wiltern, The El Rey, and The Troubadour. The band’s phat and wailing horn section, tight rhythm section, and a brassy and charismatic frontwoman with powerhouse vocals who’s dripping with baditude makes this act an utter joy to watch. Lizzy’s not just singing, she’s putting on a show. Even more important, the band’s originals fit so seamlessly into their repertoire of vintage jazz you’ll be hardpressed to know if you’re listening to an obscure cover of the era or one of the band’s songs. This one’s not to be missed!

Live and in person

Central Coast artists sought for Water Colors 2021 Storm Drain Mural Project

The Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department and Utilities Department are seeking artists to apply to join the Water Colors 2021 Storm Drain Mural Project, in which selected artists will design and paint sidewalk murals at five of the city’s storm drains. Artists throughout the Central Coast are eligible to apply to join the project, as long as they’re 18 years old or older. Submissions from applicants are due no later than Sunday, May 30. Applicants are required to submit a mural proposal, which should include their proposed artwork. This public art project is part of an effort to raise awareness about the negative effects of water pollution, according to the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department. “While providing a unique canvas, the juxtaposition of education and public art will remind our community about the need of protecting the city’s water systems while creating poignant masterpieces,” Dennis Smitherman, recreation services manager, said in a statement. Artists are encouraged to submit an artwork that reflects support for water quality initiatives. Five applicants will be chosen by a panel of judges, and each chosen artist will receive a $250 stipend to complete their proposed murals (and up to $150 in reimbursement for supplies). To find out more about the Water Colors 2021 Storm Drain Mural Project and details on how to apply, call (805) 925-0951, Ext. 2260, or visit cityofsantamaria.org/recreation.

Cambria through Art’s eyes CARTOON IMAGES COURTESY OF ARTHUR VAN RHYN

A new book collects Arthur Van Rhyn’s political comics

F

or almost 30 years, Renaissance man Arthur Van Rhyn aimed his acerbic wit at all things Cambria, generating a weekly cartoon for The Cambrian weekly newspaper. Now 150 of those cartoons have been compiled into a book, Capturing Cambria: One Artist, One Town, A Partnership in Paradise. Van Rhyn retired from cartooning in 2020 at the age of 90, but Cambrian columnist Christine Heinrichs took on the job of collecting and preserving the more than 1,100 comics, which were snapped up by the Cambria Historical Society for its permanent collection. Heinrichs also curated the selections for the book and wrote the accompanying text, which gives context to the various single-panel cartoons. “His cartoons were eagerly anticipated by locals for their skewering of local misadventures and human foibles,” Heinrichs explained. “Cambria has plenty of material! He’s over 90 years old now, and when I heard he had no future for the cartoons, I stepped in. I spent about two years on this. I organized the cartoons—put each one in a plastic sleeve and organized them in binders—and wrote the text. Those binders take up about 6 feet of shelf space available for future collections. The cartoons span national as well as local issues, so future collections could be organized around other subjects.” During a phone call with Van Rhyn, an important issue was settled once and for all. Is it CAM-bria or CAME-bria? “CAM-bria,” he exclaimed. “There’s no ‘E’ in Cambria.” He built and designed his own house and studio, built and designed an airplane; he’s a

Buy it

According to Christine Heinrichs, the book of Art Van Rhyn’s cartoons is “selling briskly through local outlets,” which include Cambria’s Cookie Crock Market, Cambria Drug & Gift, and Coalesce Bookstore in Morro Bay ($12.95 plus tax). You can also order Capturing Cambria: One Artist, One Town, A Partnership in Paradise through Heinrichs. Her email is christine.heinrichs@gmail.com.

CAMBRIA TOURIST For almost 30 years, Arthur Van Rhyn offered his wry view of Cambria, the place he’s called home since 1983, in weekly comics published in The Cambrian.

painter, sculptor, and civil engineer; and he’s created more 1,100 astute political cartoons. Mr. Van Rhyn, please tell us something you’re bad at. “Oh, I’m bad at so many things. Thankfully, I’m blessed with the ability to laugh at myself,” he said. Have his political cartoons ever brought him grief from his fellow Cambrians? “Oh, a few times, yeah,” Van Rhyn said. “You can’t poke fun at somebody without them getting back at you. One or two got a little virulent. After one particularly nasty one, I followed up with a blank panel, under which was written, ‘In which the cartoonist, in his never-ending search for humor in the human condition, achieves a work that does not offend anyone on the basis of race, religion, ethics, politics, morals, or individual rights.’”

IN WHICH HOMETOWN PRIDE IS IMPORTANT Many of Van Rhyn’s comics, some of which were cooked up on deadline day, skewer Cambria’s sleepy reputation where people drive at glacial speeds and tourists wander aimlessly in the streets.

Is his gallery still open and is he still making art? “I haven’t done a damn thing in a year because of this pandemic, but I’m leaning back in that direction,” Van Rhyn said. “We’ve all got our shots, or many of us have, and my gallery is only open on the weekends. My hours are 11 a.m. till boredom.” At this point in his life, Van Rhyn could live anywhere. What keeps him in Cambria? “Because it’s Cambria! I’m here on the beach with the best view in world,” he said. “The weather is exactly what I want: It’s one thing in the morning and something else in the afternoon.” ∆ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Glen I’m a big fan of Taylor Sheridan. He really knows how to write macho stories. His first screenplay was Sicario (2015), after all, and he also created the Kevin Costner neo-Western TV series Yellowstone. I still think his best work is Wind River (2017), but this lean, mean action thriller is very compelling. The Blackwells are efficient and remorseless assassins, and they’re unworried about collateral damage. The story also features Ethan Sawyer (an always dependable Jon Bernthal), local law enforcement and also Hannah’s ex, who’s now married to Allison (Medina Senghore), pregnant with their first child. When killers are willing to take out a pregnant woman, you know just how ruthless they are. Hannah, Ethan, and Allison, however, are all capable, and the cat-andmouse game they play amid the growing forest fire is gripping. Pregnant Allison is especially tenacious, and Hannah’s PTSD ups the emotional ante—she holds herself responsible for some earlier fire deaths when she “read the wind wrong.” This is a propulsive and violent story, and it’s also Jolie’s first action flick since Salt (2010). She’s up to the ass-kicking task as long as you can get past her anorexic physique. Anna Jolie may not seem like the obvious choice for a smokejumper, but it was her collaboration that made Sheridan take on this project after another director dropped out, and he made a good call here. Her body of work shows that she can kick ass and look good doing it, and Those Who Wish Me Dead holds steady in that department. It’s always high stakes when a kid gets involved, and Little

Matinee holds his own as her bad-guy-dodging companion. I love Bernthal in all he does; he’s such a reliable actor, melding into his character so naturally. This one had me gasping, holding my breath, whispering “nonononono” as the cat-and-mouse game played out. Well done, cast and crew! The father-son team is so diabolical and sinister, they make for great villains you can’t wait to see the hammer of justice come down on. Quite honestly I didn’t know much about this film going into it, and I was sort of expecting a run-of-themill action flick, which in some ways it is, but in other ways it’s elevated. I felt compelled to watch and not check out halfway through and start scrolling my phone—the fate of many action flicks when I’m at home watching. This isn’t my favorite work from Sheridan, but it’s still solid just the same. Definitely worth checking out when you need to feel a bit of adrenaline running through your blood. Glen We have HBO Max, so we watched it at home, but I imagine it’s even more powerful on the big screen.

human race, but hopefully it will also inform your decisions when it comes to ordering dinner. From the world of illegal whaling to the realities of bycatch, this pointed and urgent film gives us glimpses of the ugly truths behind the big business of decimating our seas and the false narrative the industry spins on it. You would think that there’s some regulation or control over the use of words like “dolphin free” and “sustainably harvested,” but the sad reality is that those labels we live by are flat-out meaningless, and our biggest resource on this planet is being sucked dry of its ecosystem. This is a tough watch but an important one, hopefully encouraging the audience to rethink their food choices and opt for meals that don’t contribute to this dire and drastic situation.

did an incredible job capturing it. If we didn’t already pay for HBO, I would have ponied up the dough to watch this in a theater. It’s not going to win any awards, and it’s a pretty standard-issue action story that apparently deviates considerably from the novel it’s based upon, but Sheridan’s direction keeps things moving fast. There’s no time to get bored. With solid performances from all involved and interesting, well-crafted characters, I’d say this is worth matinee prices unless you’re an action film fan or an Angelina Jolie junkie, in which case, pay full price. It will be worth it to you. Anna Yep, this would be a fun one in the theater—even easier to get absorbed in the fiery cinematography. It definitely doesn’t stray far from being a standard action flick, but it isn’t a bad one. Storyline-wise, it falls in pretty familiar territory, but the landscape and the tight cast add a lot to what could have been just plain ordinary. Like you said, this one isn’t in the cards to win awards, but it does the job it sets out to do—keeps the audience engaged and rooting for the good guys to win.

obert Lorenz (Trouble with the Curve) directs this so-so action thriller about Arizona rancher, former Marine, and Vietnam vet Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson), who feels obligated to save Miguel (Jacob Perez), a little boy crossing the border after the boy’s mother is killed by a dangerous drug cartel, which is committed to finding and killing the boy. The pair, wary of one another at first, begin to form a bond as they set out for Chicago, where Miguel has family. Naturally, the cartel is in hot pursuit, and a series of skirmishes follow as they try to escape. The story is clearly going for a Clint Eastwood vibe: Think The Mule and Gran Torino in particular. Hanson’s a good man about to lose his ranch to the bank because of his deceased wife’s cancer medical bills. He’s not without compassion, but he’s the kind of guy who calls in “IAs”—illegal aliens—when he sees them crossing the border during his ranching duties. He’s desperate for money to save his ranch, so when Miguel’s dying mother, Rosa (Teresa Ruiz), promises him a bagful to get her boy to Chicago, he ignores his moral code and agrees.

BREATHE OUT AND SQUEEZE Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Liam Neeson, right) helps Miguel (Jacob Perez) escape a Mexican drug cartel trying to kill him, in The Marksman, now available at Redbox. It’s pretty derivative and farfetched. Why the cartel would go to such lengths to kill a little boy makes no sense, and for a film called The Marksman, I was expecting Hanson to be a better shot. The ending is exactly what I would expect, but as a Neeson fan, I was OK spending $1.80 to watch his aging ex-Marine fight one final battle. If you miss it, you haven’t missed much.

G

rowing up as the daughter of two business owners, Central Coast local and lifelong foodie Rachel Boston had always hoped to start a business of her own one day. The only question was what? “It has been a huge dream of mine, but the question always was what should I do that I am passionate about, and what can I bring to this community,” said Boston, whose father owned a local pet supply company during her childhood. But Boston, 28, credits her experiences at Evergreen Video in Santa Maria, which her mother owned for about three decades before the store closed in 2018, for shaping her aspirations. “You could say I grew up in that video store, which taught me so many important skills when it comes to customer service and the impact you can have on people,” Boston said. “I understand it was only a video store, but I watched the impact that my mom made on her customers and the community. I hoped I could do that one day.” For the past seven years, Boston has worked in customer service and management positions, from event and catering manager to operations manager, for a local food service company, but she didn’t take the steps to launch an operation of her own until March of last year. “I had been working long hours, with little time to focus on anything else. Then the pandemic hit and threw everyone’s lives up in the air, including myself,” Boston said. “This led to me being furloughed for roughly six months.” A few months into her furlough, Boston had an epiphany while casually browsing the internet, tumbling deeper and deeper down a foodie-laden rabbit hole. “I stumbled upon a few charcuterie businesses in the LA area, and it just hit me,” Boston said. “I was immediately

STOP AND EAT THE ROSES One staple feature of boxes and boards at Brie Happy Charcuterie is founder Rachel Boston’s salami roses. “You can’t help but smile when looking at a gorgeous rose that you can also eat,” Boston said. “Appearance is such an important factor. I truly feel like we eat with our eyes first.”

BOSTON’S BOXES Local Rachel Boston, creator of Brie Happy Charcuterie, described a charcuterie box as the perfect companion to bring along on outdoor adventures.

drawn in and knew I wanted to do this.” In her personal life, Boston had already enjoyed customizing charcuterie boards for herself, and she figured that adding gift-like, to-go charcuterie boxes to the mix would be a natural option when envisioning what her business could be. “I thought the idea of a charcuterie box is such a perfect fit for the current state of life,” Boston said. “It makes the perfect addition to any small or intimate gathering; a date night in, girls night, a picnic, a trip to a winery or the beach with loved ones or friends. Being on the Central Coast, we have so many beautiful places to go and explore, and a charcuterie box makes the perfect companion.” WIDE SPREAD Brie Happy Charcuterie offers a diverse range of packages to choose from, with boxes and boards in varying sizes. Customers can also customize their orders to include whichever available meat, fruit, and cheese options they prefer.

Designing and crafting the decorative boxes themselves fulfilled a separate passion for Boston, she explained, beyond curating the food items to be included in each box. “In my work life, I have a huge passion for customer service and providing people with an experience. But personally, I love making things beautiful—decorating, anything of the sort,” Boston said. “Let’s just say when it comes to Christmastime, I go all out. I am the kind of woman that loves to make holiday gift baskets for my friends and family. “I love taking the time to perfect every little detail,” she added. “It just makes me happy to bring others joy. I love the experience and the process of creating something beautiful for others to enjoy.” It’s this attention to detail that separates Brie Happy Charcuterie, which she officially launched at the beginning of May, from other charcuterie businesses, Boston believes. “I do feel like I set myself apart by wanting each box to be an experience for those who are enjoying it, not just food for them to eat,” Boston said. “Each time I am creating a box or board, I think about how it will bring people together to connect and enjoy themselves.” Brie Happy Charcuterie offers a diverse range of packages to choose from, with boxes and boards in varying sizes, which she can deliver in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties for a small fee. Customers can also customize their orders

to include whichever available meat, fruit, and cheese options they prefer. In perfectly punny fashion, Boston named the company after her favorite cheese, of course. “Obviously, I am a huge brie fan. I love the creaminess, versatility, and spreadability,” Boston said. “It has a nice mild, fruity yet earthy flavor. And you can eat the rind; it actually provides another unique flavor profile and texture when combined with the creaminess of the cheese.” As Boston is currently back to working full time at her longtime job, she usually dedicates the very early hours of the morning to her new charcuterie venture. “I actually look forward to waking up at 6 a.m. to prepare an order before going to my full-time job, and I’m not even a morning person,” said Boston, whose favorite part of finishing her boards and boxes is applying “the final floral touches, fresh rosemary, and the little details that turn it from being a meat and cheese box or board into an entire mood.” Speaking of both meat and floral touches, one staple feature in Boston’s charcuterie packages is her salami roses. “You can’t help but smile when looking at a gorgeous rose that you can also eat,” Boston said. “Appearance is such an important factor. I truly feel like we eat with our eyes first, and how food is presented can impact your mood before even taking a bite.” Δ Send salami roses to Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood at cwiseblood@newtimesslo.com.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Tell me your three most brilliant and useful opinions. Go to freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries playwright Samuel Beckett wrote the play Waiting for Godot. At one point in the tale, the character named Estragon suggests it might be possible, even desirable, to “dance first and think afterwards.” In response, the character named Pozzo says, “By all means, nothing simpler. It’s the natural order.” With that in mind, and in accordance with astrological omens, I am going to encourage you to dance first and think afterwards as much as possible in the coming weeks. In my opinion, your ability to analyze and reason will thrive to the degree that you encourage your body to engage in enjoyable free-form play. Your power to make good decisions will grow as you take really good care of your physical organism and give it an abundance of pleasure and release.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): My friend Jenny’s Swedish grandmother used to say to her on a semi-regular basis, “Åh tänk om vi vore korkade, vi skulle vara så lyckliga,” meaning, “If only we were stupid, we would be so happy.” In the coming weeks, I am asking you to disprove that folk wisdom. According to my analysis of the astrological potentials, now is a favorable time for you to explore ways in which your intelligence might enhance and deepen your enjoyment of life. Your motto should be: “The smarter we are, the happier we will be.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): As you enter a phase when gradual, incremental progress is the best progress possible, I offer you the concluding lines of Taurus poet Adrienne Rich’s poem “From a Survivor”: “not as a leap, but a succession of brief, amazing movements, each one making possible the next.” I especially want to call your attention to the fact that the small steps can be “brief, amazing movements.” Don’t underestimate the power of minor, subtle, regular breakthroughs.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Here’s a public service announcement for you Geminis from the planet and god Mercury: You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were three years ago, or six months ago, or last week—or even five minutes ago, for that matter. Mercury furthermore wants you to know that you have been authorized to begin a period of improvisation and experimentation, hopefully guided by a single overriding directive: what feels most fun and interesting to you. In the coming weeks it will be more important to create yourself anew than to know precisely who you are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometime soon I invite you to speak a message similar to what poet Kenneth Rexroth once delivered to a special person in his life. He wrote, “Your tongue thrums and moves / Into me, and I become / Hollow and blaze with / Whirling light, like the inside / Of a vast expanding pearl.” Do you know anyone who might be receptive to hearing such lyrical praise? If not, create a fantasy character in your imagination to whom you can say it. On the other hand, maybe you do know a real person who would appreciate an earthier, less poetical tribute. If so, please convey it; something akin to this: “Your influence on me amplifies my ability to be my best self.” Now is a perfect time to honor and extol and reward those who move you and excite you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Author Aldous Huxley said, “I can sympathize with people’s pains, but not with their pleasures. There is something curiously boring about somebody else’s happiness.” To that I reply, “Other people’s pleasure and happiness bored you? Maybe you were suffering from raging narcissism and an addiction to cynicism.” In any case, Sagittarius, I hope you won’t be like Huxley in the next few weeks. I believe you could glean useful insights and derive personal benefits from knowing about and appreciating the joys of others.

CAPRICORN

(June 21-July 22): As a Zen Buddhist priest for 47 years, Kōshō Uchiyama was knowledgeable about the power that illusions can wield over our imaginations. “If we’re not careful,” he said, “we are apt to grant ultimate value to something we’ve just made up in our heads.” I won’t tell you the examples from my own life that prove his point, because they’re too embarrassing. And I’m happy to report that I don’t think you’re anywhere near granting ultimate value to something you’ve just made up in your head. But I do advise you to be on the lookout for milder versions of that phenomenon.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn businessman Howard Hughes (1905-1976) had great success early in his life. Working as a film director and aviation pioneer, he became a wealthy philanthropist. But as he aged, he became increasingly eccentric and reclusive. For the last 10 years of his life, he lived in expensive hotels, where he placed strict and often absurd demands on the hotel staff. For example, if he called on room service to bring him a meal that included peas, he would measure the peas with a ruler, and send back any he deemed too big. I do hope that you Capricorns will also have an intense focus on mastering the details in the coming weeks—but not as intense or misguided as that nonsensical obsession.

LEO

AQUARIUS

(July 23-Aug. 22): Leo-born professor Sibelan Forrester is an expert on charms, spells, and incantations in Russian folklore. She wrote, “An empty place where no one can see or hear what one says is the proper locus for working magic.” Spells often start with these words, she added: “I rise up, saying a blessing. I go out, crossing myself, and I go to an open field.” Whether or not you have Russian heritage, Leo, I see the immediate future as being a good time for you to perform magic in an open field with no one else around. What might be the intention of your magic? How about something like this: “I ask my guides and ancestors to help me offer my most inspired largesse so as to serve the health and inspiration and liberation of the people whose lives I touch.”

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author Charles Dickens (18121870) was famous and popular. Audiences packed the halls where he did public lectures and readings. His favorite way to prepare for these evening events was to spend the day drinking a pint of champagne, as well as generous servings of rum, cream, and sherry with eggs beaten into the mix. I don’t have a problem with that—whatever works, right?—but I suggest a different approach for your upcoming appointments with greater visibility and prominence. Like what? How about sexy meditations on the gratitude you feel for your expanding possibilities? How about fun fantasies focusing on how you’ll use your increased clout?

PISCES

VIRGO

(Feb. 19-March 20): In his upcoming book The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, John Koenig proposes that we begin using “monachopsis,” a word he coined. He defines it as follows: “the feeling of being out of place, as maladapted to your surroundings as a seal on a beach—lumbering, clumsy, easily distracted, huddled in the company of other misfits, unable to recognize the ambient roar of your intended habitat, in which you’d be fluidly, brilliantly, effortlessly at home.” Even if you have spent too much time lately experiencing monachopsis, my dear, I predict this malaise will soon dissipate and give way to an extended phase of being fluidly, brilliantly, effortlessly at home. ∆

CANCER

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spiritual author Stephen Russell wrote, “Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: It is your greatest asset.” That’s an exaggeration, in my opinion. Vulnerability is a greater asset than your intelligence, compassion, and creativity? Not in my view. But I do recognize the high value of vulnerability, especially for you Virgos during the next three weeks. “Be vulnerable,” Russell continues. “Quake and shake in your boots with it. The new bounty and beauty that are coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things, can only come to you when you are vulnerable—open.”
