SLO County grapples with a $3.2 million loss on cannabis

S

an Luis Obispo County supervisors discussed the county’s struggling cannabis program on June 22, with staff highlighting a $3.2 million net loss since 2018 and a dearth of operational businesses. After nearly four years, SLO County has 20 permitted and licensed cannabis operators with their doors open, including just 15 total acres of cultivation. The end result for the county’s coffers: a $3.2 million deficit and ongoing hit to the general fund. “That’s tied to production,” SLO County Chief Administrative Officer Wade Horton told the Board of Supervisors. “When you look at the acreage that’s in production today, it just does not generate enough tax revenue to cover the cost of the program.” According to cannabis industry members, the slow rollout is a result of SLO County’s cumbersome permitting process, which can keep applicants in the project review stage for several months or even years. When projects do make it to the finish line, neighbors’ appeals or lawsuits can torpedo them, they said. “Three and a half years later ... we still feel really stuck,” said Jamie Jones, owner of Kirk Consulting, which represents and advises cannabis applicants in SLO County. “I’ve never done anything harder in my life when it comes to land use.” The Board of Supervisors—which is split in its sentiments about cannabis—voted on June 22 to make a handful of policy changes aimed at moving the industry forward and solving its fiscal shortfall. “It’s a matter of getting acreage in the ground,” 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson said. By 3-2 vote, the board reversed an environmental review policy that had put the onus on cannabis applicants to produce full CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) analyses for their projects. Instead, SLO County will commission a “programmatic” environmental impact report for

the county as a whole—an approach taken by other localities, including Santa Barbara County. “In hindsight, I think the biggest judgment error we made was to not prepare a program-level EIR,” Jones said. “What we’re seeing is very organized opposition. They’re using CEQA as an opportunity to stop projects. ... Our farmers need that coverage.” Critics of the local cannabis industry opposed that move. Arroyo Grande resident Susan Mayer, speaking on behalf of the SLO Cannabis Watch Group, said that the county shouldn’t foot the bill for an industry EIR that’s projected to cost $850,000. The supervisors, in response, asked county staff to explore ways to make the industry pay for it. The supervisors will also freeze the county’s cannabis tax—which was set to increase to 8 percent of gross receipts on July 1—at 6 percent. The board greenlit a new fee study aimed at better recouping cannabis costs. It also moved to reestablish a county cannabis subcommittee and fund a multi-department compliance monitoring team. Cannabis business leaders criticized the county for asking a small number of operators to pay higher fees. “It seems that a fraction of the operators are being asked to foot the bill for the entire program,” said Adam Laurent, of the Central Coast Cannabis Council. “What if we focused on improved performances on on-boarding?” Supervisors shared differing views for why the industry has struggled locally. Fifth District Supervisor Debbie Arnold cited the level of neighborhood opposition to cannabis projects. “It surprised me the amount of conflict we’re seeing out in the unincorporated area,” Arnold said. “The permitting process to me is just about ensuring compatibility and reducing community conflict.” Gibson blasted the board for creating a cannabis program that he said was set up to fail.

Paso school board debates critical race theory

In recent months, some states, including Idaho, Oklahoma, and Texas, have passed legislation banning critical race theory in schools, according to NBC News. At Paso’s June 22 meeting, Superintendent Curt Dubost said that while critical race theory is not a part of the district’s formal curriculum, administrators wanted to discuss the topic after they were flooded with parent inquiries about the district’s stance on critical race theory. Board President Arend drafted a resolution that would, if passed, ban the teaching of critical race theory in Paso’s schools, calling it a “divisive ideology that assigns moral fault to individuals solely on the basis of an individual’s race and, therefore, is itself a racist ideology.” Although several community members said at the meeting that such a prohibition would be unnecessary and authoritarian and could prevent kids from learning about America’s dark history of racism, Arend told New Times that “whitewashing” history is not his intent. He pointed to the last paragraph of the proposed resolution. “Notwithstanding the above restrictions, social science courses can include instruction about critical race theory,” it reads, “provided that such instruction plays only a subordinate role in the overall course and provided further

A recent discussion regarding a potential ban on the teaching of “critical race theory” in Paso Robles schools ended on a cliffhanger after board of education members failed to come to a consensus on whether they should look into the issue or how to define critical race theory. After dozens of public comments at a meeting on June 22 regarding critical race theory and the possibility of its presence—or lack thereof—in Paso’s schools, the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District board of education decided to discuss the issue again at an unspecified later date. Maybe. “We’ll keep you informed,” Board President Chris Arend told the audience at the end of the lengthy meeting, which ran until about 11 p.m. Critical race theory is a decades old academic concept that emerged out of efforts in the ’70s to understand how legal policies and systems in the U.S. differently impact people of differing ethnicities, according to EducationWeek, an online resource for K-12 educators. Critical race theorists argue that racism is not just the product of prejudice between individuals, but that it’s pervasive in our society and deeply embedded in the culture and institutions, and that people who exist in such a society often unknowingly pick up racial biases.

GOING SLOW With only 20 active cannabis operators, SLO County has lost $3.2 million from its cannabis program in more than three years.

“This Board of Supervisors has not articulated a coherent policy framework based on a shared commitment to see this industry [succeed],” Gibson said. “This isn’t going to change until you get a coherent commitment to cannabis or a clear declaration that a majority of this board doesn’t want to see cannabis. It’s got to be one or another.” First District Supervisor John Peschong contrasted SLO County’s program to Santa Barbara County’s, which has more than 300 acres of cultivation approved and is projecting nearly $17 million in annual tax revenue. Peschong said he generally favors SLO County’s slower and more discretionary approach but acknowledged the system is currently bogged down by regulation. “It does sound like Big Government has met cannabis,” Peschong said. “I’ve always kind of been a little-government person. I think we need to find a way to streamline this.” Δ —Peter Johnson that such instruction focuses on the flaws in critical race theory.” “There’s a difference between teaching critical race theory and teaching about critical race theory,” Arend said. “I think our students should know what the subject is, what critical race theory is, they should know what its main doctrines are, but I don’t think that critical race theory should be the basis of a class, for instance.” Some parents who spoke at the June 22 meeting agreed, calling critical race theory “Marxism” and saying that it would unnecessarily pit children of different ethnicities against each other. Several Paso parents described the concept itself as racist, saying it teaches white children to feel ashamed of their skin color and heritage, and that it gives children of color a victim mentality. “Anyone that supports this, in my opinion, you are a predator going after the innocence of my children,” parent Heidi Holliday said at the meeting. “The past year and a half has damaged all of us in ways that we aren’t fully even aware of yet. This does not help, in fact it will deepen the chasm.” But several other attendees shared their personal experiences with systemic racism in Paso Robles, and said the sudden hysteria NEWS continued page 6

over critical race theory is based on a misunderstanding of the term and its relation to other terms like systemic racism and white privilege. Courtney Haile, the executive director of R.A.C.E. Matters SLO County, suggested that critical race theory is only now becoming controversial as part of a campaign to rev up identity politics before the next election. Still, she argued, systemic racism is real. “Race is socially constructed, and I acknowledge that it was indeed made up, just as whiteness is a construction and also made up,” she said. “It was made up to keep people of color, especially Black people, on the bottom. And the oppressive policies that have stemmed from this construction continue to have material impacts on people of color.” During further discussion among board members over whether to schedule another meeting on the topic, Deputy Superintendent Jen Gaviola suddenly jumped in, saying she was “embarrassed” for the community. As a person from a mixed-race family, Gaviola said she had no interest in drafting ordinances regarding critical race theory and that the board should trust its teachers. “I just can’t believe this is what our focus is,” she said to some mild applause from the audience. “Our kids have been out of school for a year, and this is our focus now? We should be coming together as a community, and the board made great strides to do that the last three meetings. And now we’re back at this.” —Kasey Bubnash

County will discuss clerk-recorder position in July

Exactly how San Luis Obispo County will go about replacing its outgoing elected clerk-recorder will be a topic of public discussion on July 14. The SLO County Board of Supervisors directed its staff at a June 22 meeting to come back next month with options for appointing an interim clerk-recorder. “It’ll at least start the ball rolling,” 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold said. Current Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong is leaving his post on July 2 after accepting a job as a deputy clerk in Contra Costa County. His exit comes after a wave of unfounded criticism against his elections office from the Republican Party, and ahead of a governor recall election, redistricting, and two 2022 elections. In his absence, current Deputy Clerk Helen Nolan will serve as acting clerkrecorder. But since clerk-recorder is an elected position, the Board of Supervisors must appoint an interim replacement in a “reasonable” amount of time, with the job up for election in 2022. Arnold suggested that on July 14 the board could “immediately open an application process to citizens interested” in the interim job. Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson cautioned against that approach and said he’d rather give early consideration to Nolan. “My concern is that opening this process up stands to make it into a political circus,” Gibson said. “This board

needs to be very careful about how we proceed into the future. This office has a tremendous amount of work to do.” First District Supervisor John Peschong sided with Arnold and said that six deputy clerks in other counties have already approached him interested in the job. He asked that county staff look at how other counties have approached filling clerk-recorder vacancies. “I really, really do not want anyone to accuse us of not having a transparent process,” Peschong said. Julie Rodewald, a former SLO County clerk-recorder, spoke on behalf of the League of Women Voters to advocate for a nonpartisan replacement who has professional experience. —Peter Johnson

Avila resort set to host events again

The Avila Beach Golf Resort is planning to host several large in-person events and concerts in the coming months as the pandemic winds down locally, but the controversy over what events it’s really allowed to host still hasn’t been resolved. Although the resort has been hosting small weekly concerts for some time now, co-owner Rob Rossi said a flower show this month was the first truly largescale event the venue has hosted since the beginning of the pandemic, which decimated the resort’s operations and stalled hearings regarding its events license. Several other larger concerts that were canceled throughout the pandemic are being rescheduled for this fall.

“We’re now staffing up to be able to properly manage gatherings again as we open up, now that California has determined it’s ‘all clear,’” Rossi wrote to New Times. Large events at the resort have long been controversial among Avila Beach residents who say they cause traffic congestion and noise. At a meeting in March 2020, the SLO County Board of Supervisors voted to delay a hearing on the resort’s application for a temporary commercial outdoor entertainment license, which would have allowed the resort to host up to 12 oneday events with up to 3,000 attendees and five multi-day events with up to 5,000 attendees each year. The hearing was initially scheduled for December 2019, but it was delayed after confusion over its need for approval from the California Coastal Commission. Then in the fall of 2020, the resort withdrew its application. Now Rossi said the resort is operating under the permits it already has. Trevor Keith, director of SLO County Planning and Building, said any events currently scheduled at the Avila Beach Golf Resort are all allowed under the county’s code or are activities historically associated with the resort’s operations. “The county and the resort owner are in the process of better defining what events are permitted going forward,” Keith wrote in an email to New Times. “We are looking at additional ways to make sure that those activities enhance the Avila Beach community.” ∆ —Kasey Bubnash

Excited about summer school? FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

This summer is the first opportunity to recover learning lost in pandemic

BACK TO SCHOOL ALREADY School districts in San Luis Obispo County are working to meet an unprecedented demand for summer school classes, credit recovery courses, and social and physical activities for youth after a year and a half of distance and hybrid learning.

L

aura Wade has been teaching in the Lucia Mar Unified School District for more than 40 years, and until this year, she’d never seen students excited to attend summer school. “They’re on time, they’re engaged,” Wade said. “It’s great.” Wade, a ninth grade English teacher at Arroyo Grande High School, said her summer school classes are always pretty full. Students have to complete four years of English to graduate, and failing even just one semester of English requires some form of credit recovery. But this summer, after more than a year of isolation and online learning, Wade said there’s a different energy on campus. “For a lot of the students,” Wade said, “it was a rough year for them just because of the setting of school.” While schools were closed to in-person classes, a lot of Wade’s students were stuck in tough situations at home—caring for younger siblings or working jobs during school hours to help their families get by, struggling to find adequate quiet space to do schoolwork, or left without a steady WiFi connection. The 25 students currently enrolled in Wade’s two-week summer English class are all there because they failed their first semester of ninth grade English. They have to wear masks, stay physically distanced from each other, and they’re in class for five hours a day. But Wade said on June 18—a week into summer school—that her students seemed more than happy to be in class, to have somewhere to go, to see friends. “Kids are very social, and they’ve missed that,” Wade said. Although some children took to distance learning and thrived, education leaders say that wasn’t the case for the majority of K-12 students, who faced a variety of challenges to learning and physical and mental health during the pandemic. Now, schools throughout the county are meeting the unprecedented demand for activities and credit-recovery classes through increased pay for summer school teachers, a plethora of credit and learning recovery programs, and intensified mental health services. In the Lucia Mar Unified School District, 751 students enrolled in summer school in 2019 (not including those enrolled in special education), according to district spokesperson Amy Jacobs. This summer that number more than doubled, jumping to 1,669 students. “I mean our teachers and our students and our families did absolutely as well as they could during distance learning, and we were glad to reopen our schools to any in-person learner who wanted to return in March,” said Hillery Dixon, Lucia Mar’s assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction. “But we were on the hybrid schedule, which meant half days for kids so we could ensure that we were following the physical-distancing guidelines. So with all of that, it was a really atypical year.” Dixon is a member of Lucia Mar’s Learning Recovery Task Force, a group

that formed in an effort to address the academic and emotional deficits impacting students amid COVID-19 closures. In February, Dixon and other members of the task force presented a Learning Recovering and Resilience Plan aimed at helping students make up for lost instruction time and recover from the social and emotional traumas many faced within the last year. Although there are plans for extra tutoring and intervention services next school year, Dixon said the district’s expanded summer school programs and professional development opportunities are a cornerstone of the recovery plan. “But a lot of things have to wait until everybody’s back in school. And summer school is not one of those things,” Dixon said. “So we did some things at the end of this year to work on credit, recovery and extra access for kids. But as we launch into next year, summer school is really the first kind of signature big effort. And I know we’re not alone in that in the county.” Still, all that extra access requires more classrooms, teachers, meals—more of everything. In March, the Lucia Mar board of education approved an agreement allowing the district to pay teachers more than usual to work during the summer, a move that several SLO County districts also made. Typically teachers who opt in to summer school make a flat rate of around $36 an hour, which equates to about what a new hire would make during the normal school year. But some teachers, especially those who have been around for a long time, make more than that during the school year, so summer school positions are often difficult to fill. This year, Lucia Mar’s summer school teachers are making whatever they’d normally make during the school year, at an estimated cost to the district of around $1.1 million in COVID-19 relief funding. Lucia Mar expects to receive around $31 million in pandemic relief funding from the CARES Act, the American Rescue Plan, and several grants, according to Jim Empey, assistant superintendent of business. The district set aside $3 million of that to use on expanded summer school options this year and next summer. Those expanded options add up to a good incentive for teachers who need this summer break more than ever, according to Teacher Association President Cody King. “Everybody kind of went off the grid, which is understandable,” he said. “So I

think this is a necessary thing in order to staff all of the positions.” The San Luis Coastal Unified School District is also paying its teachers more this summer for similar reasons, according to Director of Learning and Achievement Rick Mayfield. That added cost will come out of the roughly $12.3 million in state and federal COVID-19 relief dollars that San Luis Coastal received. But where Lucia Mar is looking to fill a high quantity of positions to reach as many kids as possible, San Luis Coastal is hoping to fill those positions with higher quality teachers for its more intensive summer offerings. Although summer classrooms are capped at 15 students (rather than the usual 20 to 30) to maintain physical distancing, there are more students enrolled in summer school this year than ever, Mayfield said. The increase in summer school pay was ultimately designed to get the district’s veteran teachers on board, and Mayfield said it worked. “In the past we’ve had to hire some subs, brand new teachers, we’re kind of scrambling to fill the spots for summer. And this summer we didn’t have to do that. So this summer we have, you know, our regularly credentialed, high quality teachers in those classes,” he said. These instructors will be tasked with teaching new curricula developed specifically to address the complicated issues children are facing post-pandemic. The district purchased thousands of new books and added in afternoon elective activities that focus on science, art, and physical education. “So I would say this summer will be the best in terms of quality of instruction, small number of students, our lasering in on our most needy students for the summer program to recover learning and kind of prepare them for the fall,” Mayfield said. Although much of the current funding is one-time, several districts in SLO County are hoping that some of the changes made to their summer school programming will continue into the future, Mayfield said. “It’s so great, like even now in the spring, to have the kids back and to be working with them one-on-one, and we’ve seen quickly some progress, and we’ve seen kids make up lost ground, kids who were not engaged,” he said. “And so we’re just really enthused at the results of our work already.” ∆ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

Down to the wire With state rental assistance slow to arrive, tenants and service groups look anxiously to the end of eviction protections

A

dam Schooley, of Los Osos, owes more than $4,000 in back rent to his landlord after he lost his job in December for the second time during the pandemic. So in March, when the state announced a new rent relief program that would assist the estimated 900,000 California households also behind on rent due to COVID-19 hardships, Schooley applied on Day One. “I’ve never missed rent payments before, even credit card payments,” said Schooley, who worked as a manager in the San Luis Obispo County hospitality industry. “This is something I never expected to come up in my life.” To avoid eviction from his apartment, Schooley paid 25 percent of his rent using unemployment benefits, while anticipating that the state would come through with aid before the statewide “eviction moratorium” lifted on June 30. But three months later, with that June 30 deadline soon approaching, Schooley hasn’t seen a dime from the program yet—neither has he received word from the state that his application was approved, he said. “Since the end of April, I’ve been unable to get any information from official sources. ... My case manger stopped replying to my emails and phone calls,” Schooley said on June 18. “I’m still $4,000 in the hole since January, and I’m expected to pay that in 13 days. I’m scared. I have no idea what’s going to happen.” Schooley isn’t alone. California is facing a mountainous backlog of applications for its rent relief program from tenants and landlords. Recent data reported by Cal Matters indicates that only $50 million of the $1.4 billion allocated to the program has been delivered to households thus far. Delays aren’t the only problem with the program. Stakeholders also criticized its cumbersome application (which the state has revised to improve simplicity); its commitment to refund landlords only 80 percent of their owed rent, which leaves tenants in a position to receive only 25 percent if a landlord doesn’t participate; and its exclusion of tenants who’d gone into credit card debt to pay their rent. “The application was very long initially,” said Steve Ortiz, CEO of the United Way of Santa Barbara County, which has assisted Santa Maria households with rent relief applications. “The guidelines were restrictive. But I think they’ll start moving faster now.” Given the hiccups, most stakeholders anticipate that the Legislature will extend eviction protections past June 30 and tweak the program’s parameters to refund tenants and landlords for all owed rent (instead of 80 or 25 percent). But as of press time, those decisions were still up in the air.

TRYING TO AVOID EVICTIONS A state program aimed at assisting households behind on their rent amid COVID19 has not kept up with demand.

“It’s all predicated on the Legislature,” said Janna Nichols, executive director of the Five Cities Homeless Coalition, a nonprofit based out of Grover Beach. “I think we’re going to get there. I think they’re going to work it all out.”

Two counties, two experiences

While tenants in SLO County, like Schooley, anxiously await word from the state about rent relief, about 1,000 households in Santa Barbara County have already received payments. That’s because Santa Barbara County decided to administer a local rent relief program that ran parallel to the state’s— an option given to all counties back in March. Basically, California gave counties the chance to get federal funding to run a localized rental assistance program, or defer that money and responsibility to the state. Santa Barbara County opted to partner with United Way to run a $12 million local program, which is helping eligible tenants cover 100 percent of their owed rent and utilities. As of June 18, Ortiz said about $8.4 million had gone out to 1,001 households—including $3.6 million to supervisorial Districts 4 and 5, which include the Santa Maria Valley. “I think that was the best decision by our local supervisors because we are able to move much faster on a local level,” Ortiz said. “We’ve been told we’re one of the fastest-moving programs in the state.” But the demand for rent relief is so high, Ortiz said, that United Way had to close its application portal after receiving more than 6,500 applications. Households making less than 80 percent of the median income are eligible, but the program will prioritize those at 50 percent or lower. “We’re churning through the applications that have already been submitted,” Ortiz said. “The funding—it’s not enough to cover all of the individuals.” California recently allocated another $14 million in rental aid to Santa Barbara County as part of its state-level program, according to Ortiz, and United Way is now helping households navigate that application process. But the concern now is that the money will not get out quickly enough to enough people with June 30 approaching. “We’re starting to hear the desperation of the tenants and landlords, just knowing that that deadline is looming and there is need for funds,” Ortiz said. “There is hope and an expectation that additional funds will come down, we’re just not sure they’ll arrive in time.”

These concerns are even more profound in SLO County, a jurisdiction that decided not to set up its own local rent relief program, deferring about $17.5 million in aid to the state’s program. In SLO County, nearly all tenants and landlords still await rental assistance. According to Nichols, of the Five Cities Homeless Coalition, out of the more than 350 applications her organization has assisted with thus far, only 10 had been paid out as of June 14. “It’s been really slow. And everybody acknowledges this,” Nichols said. Up until the state recently simplified and streamlined the application, the process of applying for aid often took three hours, a litany of documents, and multiple meetings, Nichols said. Then households waited months for their applications to move through the state system. “Our job is to enroll people, and there’s another company that has the responsibility of doing case management,” Nichols explained. “I think they were just woefully understaffed.” Despite the frustrations, Nichols said the state seems to recognize the problems and is fixing them. She expects the process to start moving much more quickly. She also said she’s confident that the Legislature will extend eviction protections past June 30 and will also commit to subsidizing 100 percent of applicants’ back rent. “I do believe the state understands the problem,” she said. “I think the Legislature is going to make a change.” Most troubling to Nichols, she said, is the number of households that went into credit card debt to pay their rent over the pandemic. That debt is not currently eligible for relief under the program. But Nichols said those tenants could be eligible for future rental assistance, so she encourages them to apply at housingiskey.com “There really should be no reason that a tenant or landlord doesn’t apply for this program,” she said. If the state does push out the June 30 deadline, it could keep thousands of Californians housed and give the state’s program proper time to dole out resources, advocates say. If it doesn’t, starting July 1 full rent is due, and starting Aug. 1 landlords can take tenants to small claims court for past rent owed. “It is definitely the feeling among our staff and partners,” Ortiz said, “that unless there are changes in policy, we’ll probably be seeing a good amount of evictions.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

rittany Gonsalves was looking to get her creative juices flowing last year after the pandemic halted her business operations. “I was trying to find something to keep occupied, be creative, and have an outlet to stay hopeful and keep going,” she said. She and her husband, Rigoberto Guzman, started the Central Coast Tacos Catering Company in 2018. Aside from providing customers with savory carne asada or soyrizo tacos, the pair also offers bartending, busing, setup, and cleanup services—an added bonus that Gonsalves said not many small catering companies provide. The venture, which she now solely owns, was the career change that Gonsalves was looking for after giving birth to her second child in 2018. At the time, she worked for the San Luis Obispo County Public Defender’s Office and was simultaneously trying to balance her home life. A mix of the high cost of child care, a full-time workload, and the duties of caring for an infant were enough for Gonsalves to reconsider her career choice. With her new business on hold two years later, she searched for a passion project, and she found it in a junkyard. Gonsalves stumbled upon an old ice cream pushcart that needed a lot of care but was full of potential—just the project she was looking for.

She describes the cart as a vintage 1980s retrofitted ice cream pushcart that reminded her of the paletero man, or a street vendor of paletas and helados (which translate to popsicles and ice cream), visiting neighborhoods or setting up on street corners in the city of Santa Maria. Nostalgia and the potential for turning the pushcart into a business moved Gonsalves to put life back into it. The cart came with all of the bells and whistles—it just needed a tune-up, which Gonsalves said became a family effort. “We had to replace everything, from the wheels and really everything. It was pretty much an Igloo box on wheels,” she said. Once they revived the cart, Gonsalves decided to create a second arm of her catering business that included popsicles and ice cream. She called it Paleta & Co. and slapped a bright pink neon sign on the side of the pushcart. The cart made its debut alongside those tacos in March of this year at Hammer Sky Vineyards in Paso Robles. Ever since their March return, Gonsalves has also provided her savory and sweet services once a month at There Does Not Exist brewery in San Luis Obispo. Wherever the cart goes, she said, people’s responses are positive. “It’s so much fun to take it to events, parties, weddings. You know, everyone enjoys ice cream, so it’s just a nice special

Central Coast boondoggle

joins Arroyo Grande to dump Pismo’s Central Coast Blue Kool-Aid like the colonists dumped tea in Boston Harbor. Δ

Grover Beach should join Arroyo Grande in dumping Pismo’s water project

Julie Tacker writes to New Times from Los Osos. Send a response for publication to letters@newtimesslo.com.

n response to the New Times shredding (“Say something,” June 10) of “Arroyo Grande opts out of Central Coast Blue, barring new agreement” (June 10). It’s about time someone stood up to Pismo Beach on what I call, “Central Coast boondoggle.” Thank goodness the Arroyo Grande City Council, which under the current agreement is charged with paying for almost half of the project, has finally spit out some of the Central Coast Blue KoolAid that’s been served for the last several years. The city of Pismo Beach, as the project’s lead agency, has couched the project as “a local water sustainability project that will create a new, high quality, and reliable water supply for our Five Cities communities, including Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, and Oceano.” A project that started out in the $28 million range has ballooned to more than $50 million to produce a mere 1,000 acrefeet of water, of which Arroyo Grande would receive just 400 acre-feet. The ongoing cost to Arroyo Grande is nearly $2 million a year that will be added to the water rates (watch out, AG residents, your water bill is going up, up, up!). Approximately five years ago, Central Coast Blue, then under the name Regional Groundwater Sustainability Project, appeared interesting to grant providers—they love to fund projects that sound important. Over the years, the project has received millions in state

HODIN

and federal grants (i.e., your and my tax dollars). Grants are not “free money” or winning the lottery, they are funds intended to pay for projects that otherwise might not be funded at all. The project was rebranded to Central Coast Blue to capture the interest of the communities that will actually pay for it for decades. I invite you to check out the project website; it looks like a glossy travel platform inviting you to Pismo Beach to drink its tourists’ treated sewer water—bottoms up! Not only is the branding misleading to grant providers and residents, including Oceano as a partner is a complete head fake. Oceano Community Services District will never need any of its water and certainly can’t afford it—it can’t afford its Five Cities Fire Authority services. Central Coast Blue is in trouble: They set out to put a series of injection wells in the Coastal Dunes RV Park and Campground along Highway 1. Millions of dollars were spent evaluating the land and the project’s environmental impacts at that location. Most of these costs were paid for by grants, but each of the cities and South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District contributed, too. A serious issue was brought to their attention when the temporary (intended to be converted to permanent) test well permit was appealed to the California Coastal Commission. The property is improperly zoned for a permanent well.

While the Coastal Commission denied the appeal, they did agree the zoning of the land in the campground would need to be changed. This was before $750,000 in grant money was spent drilling the well in that same campground—they drilled anyway. During the drilling of the test well, Pismo Beach received warnings from the SLO County Planning Department that they were in violation of their permit when they posted ridiculous 20-foottall-by-50-foot-long banners promoting the project on the sound walls they had understated in size. Now Pismo Beach admits that changing the zoning to accommodate the injection wells in the campground is not feasible. Furthermore, they have amended the contract with the engineering firm, WSC, which should have known the land use limitations and should have set out to pursue other parcels to locate the injection wells. WSC has racked up nearly $1 million pursuing the project, and it’s nowhere near being permitted or ready to build. While I often disagree with the Arroyo Grande City Council, I do agree that the governance structure for Central Coast Blue has Pismo Beach, which gets just 200 acre-feet of the recycled water, securely strapped into the driver’s seat. Pismo Beach doesn’t want to comply with the Brown Act, claiming it adds cost to the project. This agency doesn’t want to perform the people’s business in front of the people who are paying the bill. This is taxation without representation. Let’s hope Grover Beach wakes up and

My name is Jeffrey S. Richard, and I have resided on the Central Coast for more than 15 years. I am homeless living in a tent. Recently I was given a notice from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office CAT team to move everything I own by June 20, 2021. The notice was posted above my campsite on June 16, 2021, at 2:10 p.m. Does the Sheriff’s Office really expect me to have everything I own moved out in three days or I’m subject to arrest for trespassing? So, who really cares then? Give me a break! Or more time! Be reasonable. I’m just a 63-year-old man moving all my shit in three days or I’m subject to arrest.

You’ve done it for more than seven years. Why now? And in the hottest time of the year, but who really cares? I am only one person among literally hundreds. But I will speak up, and I will be heard.

hen addressing formal comments to local jurisdictions, state agencies usually adopt a certain tone. It is formal, courteous, and rife with helpful suggestions and supportive statements of hopeful collaboration. When it comes to development proposals in Cambria and the question of how water will be found to serve those developments, there was once a time when the California Coastal Commission addressed the county of San Luis Obispo in that manner. That was a long time ago. For the reason why, one need look no further than the commission’s Oct. 8, 2020, staff report on the appeal of SLO County’s decision to grant a permit for “construction of a 2,170-square-foot two-story single-family residence with a 540-square-foot attached garage, and other site improvements on a 13,220-square-foot vacant parcel in the community of Cambria.” Herewith, one of the introductory paragraphs from the report (“LCP” refers to the Local Coastal Plan, the policies by which the county implements the California Coastal Act) (italics are in the original document): “The county’s action raises substantial LCP water resource and sensitive habitat issues because: (1) the county did not determine that there was an adequate sustainable water supply to serve the project, as is required by the LCP, but rather relied solely on a Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) intent-to-serve (or “will serve”) letter for this purpose; (2) there is not an adequate sustainable water supply at this time to provide new water service to serve new development in Cambria (and it is not adequate even for existing development), a factual finding that has been repeatedly made by the commission in relation to development in Cambria across multiple actions, including certification of LCP provisions (specific to the present lack of available water and imposing specific water supply requirements) and CDP [coastal development permit] actions; (3) the sources of Cambria’s water supply (i.e., Santa Rosa and San Simeon creeks) are environmentally sensitive habitat areas (ESHA) that are currently being adversely affected by existing water extractions to support existing development in Cambria; and (4) the county found that the project could be served by the community’s already oversubscribed water supply because the project would be required to comply with the CCSD’s retrofit program designed to offset water use, but such offsets would be inadequate to meet LCP standards with respect to adequate sustainable water supply, and the CCSD’s program does not appear to actually offset such water use even if it were to be deemed an appropriate tool to meet LCP standards, which it is not.” (Commission staff made the same comments, virtually word for word, a month later in response to appeals of two more permits issued by the county, and underscored the county’s reliance on intent-to-serve letters from the CCSD— simply statements of intent from “a water purveyor that sells water”—as proof of an adequate water supply.) It goes on like that for 37 pages—a

state agency that cannot believe what it’s seeing. The report does not fail to mention Cambria’s reliance on future water from its moribund (don’t call it a) desal plant—planned in haste, repented at leisure—pointing out that no fewer than five different agencies “have raised concerns regarding the likely environmental resource impacts from the proposed water supply project and its likely nonconformity with various elements of the LCP. There is currently no established timeline for when the CCSD might complete its CDP application, when the county might take action on it, and then when potential appeals of a county decision might be made to the commission. Thus, it is not clear when, or even if, a facility such as is currently proposed may eventually come online, and it is not appropriate to countenance it in relation to whether such a water source (if ultimately approved) could provide for new water connections to serve development, including the current proposal, in an LCP-consistent manner.” That project and its application for a permit have received multiple time extensions. In August 2020, the CCSD was given a list of missing documents it needs to include with its application, plus a list of Coastal Plan policies for which it must supply written justifications showing how the project would comply with them. Ten months later, on June 10, the CCSD accepted the public draft of an Urban Water Management Plan that distinctly overestimates water supply and underestimates demand and is based on the assumption that the district will have a permit in hand for its desal facility within five years, and growth will resume. In its 2020 report, because it needed to be said, the Coastal Commission said this when denying a development permit for each of the new residences that the county approved for a permit in a town that doesn’t have the water to serve them: “Denial of the project is due to the factual circumstance of lack of adequate water, rather than a regulatory prohibition.” The county and the Cambria Community Services District may some day choose to let that sink in. Or they may continue to prefer to let that reality sizzle and burn away on impact, evaporating into the sky. ∆ Andrew Christie is the director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

The Shredder

Mighty white of you, Paso!

W

hat do Idaho, Iowa, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Paso Robles have in common? They all share a misunderstanding and irrational fear of critical race theory (CRT). The four states passed legislation to outlaw CRT in K-12 public schools even though CRT isn’t taught in K-12 public schools. Now the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District has joined the paranoia parade with its drafted Resolution 21-27, which prohibits “the teaching of Critical Race Theory.” First, the actual complexity of CRT ideas is over the heads of most college undergrads. It’s taught in graduate schools, certainly not K-12. Paso has fallen into the Culture War morass by conflating some of CRT’s ideas with the notion that teaching that white people have done terrible things is racist in and of itself. What’s even prohibited from being taught, Paso? Can teachers not teach about slavery, the American Civil War, Native American relocation and the Trail of Tears, Japanese Internment, Jim Crow laws, or civil rights legislation? These things aren’t CRT ideas. They’re historical facts! To pretend the United States doesn’t have a history of racism is to welcome a continuation of racism. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” American philosopher George Santayana intoned in The Life of Reason: Reason in Common Sense. Are we educating our students or leading them into carefully curated

ignorance? It’s not indoctrination into liberalism to teach children about America’s past mistakes. It’s history. Sadly, transforming CRT into a boogieman is another step in the conservative-led Culture War that began with the irrational fear that teaching about socialism and Marxism in the ’30s would turn America communist. From there the fearmongering went on to the John Birch Society’s worry that teaching about economic inequality would make America socialist, to the Canon Wars regarding what books could be taught, to handwringing over ethic studies and multicultural courses. Remember when people were losing their shit over “Ebonics”? For those who think systemic racism doesn’t exist, well, it probably appears that way from a position of white privilege. When you’re standing atop 400 years of oppression, you barely notice all the whipped and broken bodies beneath your feet. I mean, it’s not like they’re a pea under your Dreamcloud® super soft quilted memory foam mattress! The people who think we should ignore racism seem to have three basic arguments: “It wasn’t me! I didn’t enslave anyone.” OK, but can you not see how white Americans, even those who weren’t slave owners, benefitted from the system of slavery and continue to? Then there’s the “I don’t see color” crowd, which explains their outfits, but the society and culture you’re moving through certainly does see color. Why are there so few Black presidents and so many

Black prisoners? And then my favorite! Whataboutism! “If American is inherently racist, what about Oprah! Jay-Z! Obama! If they can succeed, that proves America isn’t racist!” Except that pointing out outliers— Andrew Jackson! Jefferson Davis! David Duke!—cuts both ways. Everyone’s favorite Texas idiot Ted Cruz described CRT as “every bit as racist as Klansmen in white sheets,” demonstrating he clearly doesn’t understand CRT any better than the reactionaries of Paso Robles, who might want to read Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism. I’d also recommend Ibram X. Kendi’s How to be an Antiracist, but I’m afraid their heads might explode. Bottom line: Paso, you are considering outlawing teaching something that isn’t taught in K-12, and you just might pass a resolution that will prohibit your teachers from imparting actual American history to your children. Slow. Clap. Idiots. I liked you better when you were mishandling your finances. And speaking of finances, it appears the SLO County Board of Supervisors had a come-to-Jesus moment over its gross mishandling of the county cannabis industry. Hallelujah! Currently the county is $3.2 million in

the hole with cannabis in the past four or so years. Only 20 businesses are permitted and operational! There are only a total of 15 acres of cultivation in the whole county! Let’s compare that to Santa Barbara, which has 300 acres under cultivation. SB is actually making money on cannabis—projecting nearly $17 million in taxes this year compared to just $800,000 or so in SLO. Why? Because instead of creating policies to help facilitate this legal segment of the agricultural industry, the BOS—especially the two most conservative members, 4th District Supe Lynn Compton and 5th District Super Debbie Arnold—has made the process of acquiring grow permits exceedingly slow and prohibitively expensive. And then applications are denied because of NIMBYism. Can someone explain to me how conservatives can be the “don’t tread on me” and “give me freedom or give me death” crowd and also the “not in my backyard” crowd? Y’all are givin’ me whiplash! Just do what SB did—have one programmatic Environmental Impact Report (EIR) that covers the entire county, so when a new grow application is submitted, it doesn’t have to generate its own EIR. Guess which two supes were against it? Winner! Another winner: Guy Savage, who said he’s made it through his whole county administration career without getting shredded. Congrats on your retirement, Guy, and on having the best name! ∆ The Shredder has the best name. Send comments and suggestions to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

Flash in time

Local photographers capture milliseconds of life from behind the lens BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

P

ictures encapsulate a moment, a look, a perspective, without using words. Photographs are as different as the attitude of the person who took them. They seize on an instant in time and keep it forever, just as it was—faces, light, and landscape. Since 1994, New Times Media Group has invited local photographers to show us life from their point of view in our annual Winning Images contest. This year, because of COVID-19, we once again conducted an all-digital contest and received more than 475 photos. Our judges narrowed them down to three winners each in eight categories, plus

eight honorable mentions. Every entry also came in with a $10 fee, which will be rolled back into prize money for the winners, who also receive awards from the contest’s sponsors. While you can see the winning images from 2021 on the following pages, you can also view them in Paso Robles through July 24 at Studios on the Park, 1130 Pine St., from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and noon to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. ∆ Contact Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

Judges Brittany App is a local photographer, filmmaker, voice artist, and self-proclaimed shepherdess-in-training. She grew up in Los Osos and now lives off the grid on the vast Carrizo Plain with her rescue-dog, Luna; 13 lucky ducks; and a rag-tag wooly crew of sheep and alpacas. Her first feature-length documentary film, titled Where There Once Was Water, is currently touring the 2021 film festival circuit. She ruminates to the beat of Mary Oliver these days: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do … With your one wild and precious life?”

Lush life Amo Amo delivers dreamy swirling pop anthems

A

mo Amo members Love Femme (Not a stage name!), Omar Velasco, Justin Flint, Shane Mckillop, and Alex Siegel were musician friends who happened to get together with My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James for an impromptu LA hipster jam session, and voila! Amo Amo was born in 2017. They found almost immediate success by creating lush and dreamy pop songs. Tracks like “Closer to You” had a reggae-lite feel; “When I Look at You” was pure psychedelic dream pop. More recently, on their 2020 EP Canta, the title track was a song they made especially for Earth Day that employed a little ska “riddim”; also on the EP was the extra silvery “Missed Connection.” This is music recorded in LA’s Silver Lake and available on old-school cassette, which confirms the band’s hipster bona fides, and the music is decidedly lovely. It’s impossible not to disappear into the music’s haze. “Because we realize the power of music to influence human beings, our songs are concerned with themes of love, connection, healing, and nature,” the band announced in press materials. “Especially during these strange times, we feel these things are of utmost importance as we learn how to live in new, hopefully more holistic and healthy ways—with each other, with the Earth, with ourselves.” Amo Amo, with opening act The Bogeys, play a (((folkYEAH!))) show at SLO Brew Rock on Thursday, June 24 (7 p.m.; free). The Bogeys are a group of former Cal Poly students and Whole Foods workers who play alt-pop music with a ’60s surf rock vibe and ’80s synth pop instrumentation. Also this week at SLO Brew Rock, Soul Majestic, with opening act Dread Kennedy, plays a reggae show on Sunday, June 27 (3 p.m.; free). “Conceived on the sandy shores of California, Soul Majestic channels their sunny beach days and bonfire nights into their unique style of reggae music,” their bio claims. They blend roots reggae with “a love of hip-hop, R&B, rock, pop, and folk music.” Dread Kennedy, who hails from Long Beach, plays positive-vibe reggae.

is currently working on releasing their first studio album. Unfinished Business will be throwing a CD release dance party at the Rotary Bandstand in Nipomo Regional Park on Saturday, June 26 (3 to 6 p.m.; all ages; free, though donations are appreciated).

SLO’s Academy of Dance holds summer dance camps for ages 6 to 13

Registration is now open to join the Academy of Dance’s upcoming summer dance camps for children and teens in San Luis Obispo. There are two different camps to choose from, both occurring between Monday, July 12, and Friday, July 16. Offered to ages 6 through 9, Disney Dancers camp is themed around a variety of Disney characters and films. Participants will be instructed on several different dance styles, including jazz, funk, and ballet. Students of the Academy’s Summer Intensive camp, offered to ages 9 through 13, will experience a longer list of styles, as “this camp focuses on technique and exposure to as many dance forms as we could fit in,” according to the Academy of Dance. Both summer camps will culminate in a special showcase event on Friday, July 16, where students’ parents and loved ones can come and watch the campers perform various dances they learned during the programs. Call (805) 544-1280 or visit academyofdanceslo.com to find out more about the camps. The Academy of Dance is located at 3422 Miguelito Ct., San Luis Obispo.

Live, in-person theater makes a Central Coast comeback with SLO Rep’s The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged]

TAMING OF THE CREW Cast members Jeff Salsbury, Suzy Newman, and Billy Breed (pictured, left to right) task themselves to perform as many highlights as they can from all 38 of Shakespeare’s plays in a single sitting during San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre’s production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged].

T

o see, or not to see, that is the question. In the case of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged]—San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre’s first live, inperson production in more than a year—the answer is yes! Cast members Billy Breed, Suzy Newman, and Jeff Salsbury—three very familiar faces to Central Coast theater buffs, each sharing past credits with both PCPA and the Great American Melodrama—task themselves to perform as many highlights as they can from all 38 of Shakespeare’s plays in a single sitting, dividing the major and minor roles among themselves, in under three hours. The end result is chaotically irreverent in all the right ways, paying tribute to Shakespeare’s works while checking off too many pop culture references to keep track of—Charlie’s Angels, Edward Scissorhands, The Matrix, the list goes on. Even if younger viewers don’t get The Love Boat jokes, they’ll have the last laugh when older folks start scratching their heads over the Mortal Kombat spoof. But before the trio’s deep dive into Shakespeare’s portfolio begins, Salsbury (as himself, or assumedly an exaggerated version of himself, simply referred to as Jeff) kicks off the show by reminding the audience to silence their phones and refrain from recording the production in any shape or form, while ironically posing for a recurring camera flash. Newman and Breed, also referred to by their first names, soon make their introductions to the audience as well, and once that fourth wall is torn down, it never goes back up. In fact, some of the best bits in the show involve audience participation. While tackling Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the trio enlists one

audience member to play Ophelia during the “Nunnery Scene.” Breed asks for the lucky participant’s name but immediately opts to call them “Bob” instead, as it’s much easier to remember. During this segment, the rest of the audience is broken up into three sections (representing Ophelia’s ego, superego, and id, respectively), and each section is instructed to yell out a separate phrase over and over again, up until “Bob” lets out a much needed, therapeutic shriek. In those moments, it’s as if the audience is collectively slipping into madness together. It’s honestly a fever dream of an experience (of the midsummer night variety, so to speak). Luckily for attendees, the darkest bit in the show doesn’t involve audience participation, as

the trio reinterpret Titus Andronicus as a Food Network cooking show, with a Guy Fieri-esque version of Titus (played by Newman) cracking jokes about grinding the bones of his enemies and baking their decapitated heads. This skit gives a whole new meaning to Emeril’s “Bam!” catchphrase. The show’s director, Kevin Harris (SLO Rep’s managing artistic director since 2008), has lovingly described The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged] as a celebration of not only its titular playwright, but the concept of live theater in itself. In this way, the show was an ideal candidate for the return of live, inperson performances at SLO Rep. “We couldn’t be happier to welcome you back to SLO Rep with this production, with this cast, with this crew, in this special place,” Harris said in the show’s program. “We missed you so much.” ∆ Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood is stoked to be seeing live plays again.

om O’Connor directs this sequel to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard, about formerly AAA-rated bodyguard, Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), who was tasked with protecting hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson), who was scheduled to testify in the International Criminal Court. As they fought off bad guys trying to stop Darius from testifying, they formed a kind of friendship. This time around, Darius’ wife, Sonia (Salma Hayek), enlists Bryce to retrieve her husband from some mobsters, setting in motion a series of international misadventures. (99 min.) Glen I’m so excited to be back in theaters that even this so-so sequel felt like a worthy excuse to pony up some dough and sit in a dark room with strangers. If you saw the first movie, you know what to expect. Bryce is a former toprated bodyguard who’s fallen from grace and desperately wants to regain his triple-A rating. He’s in therapy, but he’s so needy and desperate for validation that even his therapist wants to get rid of him, telling him he’s “graduated” from therapy and that he needs to put down the guns, give up on bodyguarding, and learn to make peace with himself. He heads to a tropical resort to do just that. Kincaid is a profane, violent, and basically unkillable killer whose wife, Sonia, is even more profane and violent. If you don’t like gunfire and F-bombs, this isn’t the film for you. Essentially, the trio finds themselves under threat by Greek criminal Aristotle Papdopolous (Antonio Banderas, who definitely doesn’t sound Greek … at all). Aristotle, bristling at the treatment Greece received during the global recession, has a plan to tap into the European Union’s grid and destroy its economy. It all makes about as much sense as casting Spanish Banderas as a Greek. Desperate to survive, Bryce goes to the only place he can think of: his stepfather Bryce Sr.’s (Morgan Freeman) Tuscan villa. Bryce Sr. turns out to be full of surprises as the story moves forward. Anna I know I saw its predecessor, but I completely forgot about it, and I came in

o-writer/director Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) helms this story about four friends, all high school teachers, suffering various levels of midlife crises. They decide to test a theory that human beings are born with an alcohol deficiency, and that they’re at their optimum if they maintain a .05 blood alcohol content. It’s won Best International Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards. The story centers on Martin (Mads

Mikkelsen), whose students have lost interest. In short, the formerly charismatic history instructor has lost his mojo. He and his wife have lost their spark. When he and his colleagues start day drinking, however, they become engaging, inspiring, and education superstars … until they take things too far. There are moments of real joy in this film, especially one in which Martin’s youth coach colleague guides his wimpiest player to a huge win. There’s also tragedy. Alcohol can be insidious in the wrong hands, and alcoholism is a progressive disease. Its ending definitely sends a mixed message, but that’s something I like about foreign films: They don’t feel the need to tie up every loose end or offer a clear resolution like most Hollywood films.

Featuring interviews with both cruise ship guests and workers, this short HBO original uses handheld camera footage from the ship as it became a petri dish for the unknown virus. Guests are soon on lockdown in their staterooms while the staff continues to work to bring them the food and supplies they need to make it through their mandated quarantine. The film chronicles the days on board, and we hear the captain announce first the news of coronavirus around the world and then soon that the virus is indeed on the ship. To say the virus changed the way we travel is never clearer than when we see these couples and crew members succumbing one by one to the virus, being offloaded to the hospital if they test positive. We watch as the cloud of COVID-19 descends on the world and on the thousands of people trapped in a floating prison.

W

hat’s blue and yellow, adorable, and aims to bring healthful food to your special event? BaguetteAbout.it, said Conny Liegl, coowner of San Luis Obispo County’s newest food truck. Liegl and her business partner, Thomas Hernandez, celebrated their grand opening earlier in June following more than a year of brainstorming and building their dream mobile kitchen, all while holding down day jobs. Originally from Leipzig, Germany, Liegl relocated to Palo Alto in 2011 and worked on web-design projects at Stanford University. A year later, she trekked south to Cal Poly and presently works at the school’s Robert E. Kennedy Library as a senior experience designer. Apart from her artistic talents, which came into play when painting the food truck and creating marketing material, Liegl is also a baker. “I started cooking and baking with my grandma when I was a child, and always expressed my love through food,” Liegl said. “Hosting dinner parties and cooking at get-togethers with friends has always been my favorite pastime.” Locals may recognize the name “Conny’s Cottage.” “I have always had a creative, expressive personality and love being around people,” Liegl said. “In 2020, I registered a cottage kitchen out of my home in Arroyo Grande, and started baking treats for neighbors and friends.” Liegl still runs that kitchen, but it has taken a back seat while she and Hernandez get the food-truck business rolling. The duo met in March of 2020, Liegl said, “and while talking to each other, we realized that we shared a dream of owning a food truck one day. We share a passion for food and customer service.” Hernandez has more than 15 years of experience in the food industry, with stints throughout the country at several restaurants featuring varied cuisine. He was born and raised in Riverside, with later COURTESY PHOTO BY PATRICK KAMMERMEYER

years spent jockeying between the Central Coast and Boise, Idaho, where he has family. He landed his first restaurant job in Paso Robles at The Dish, which has since closed. Currently, he said, he lives in Oceano and is the cook and manager of Pismo Beach’s Honeymoon Café, where he “developed his love for creative recipes with regional ingredients and sustainable practices.” In discussing a possible joint venture, Liegl said they conducted surveys with customers and wineries, and decided the time was ripe “for us to share our values of healthy, nourishing, and tasty food in response to the need for good mobile food.” They ultimately registered the business name BaguetteAbout.it, then started searching for the ideal food truck. “We were thinking of a creative name that is punny, easy to remember, and captures our menu in one word,” Liegl said. “We love French baguettes, and knew we wanted to create new sandwiches and crostini, so the name made perfect sense for us. As the name is also the web domain, we spell it with the dot in our marketing.” The next step was to find the perfect truck. After looking at used vehicles in both the Bay Area and SLO County, they stumbled upon a 1972 Ford Econoline posted on Facebook Marketplace. Liegl said the truck belonged to a Templeton restaurateur “who actually played with the thought of converting [it] into a mobile food truck, but opted for a brick-and-mortar instead. So we bought the run-down truck for $6,500 and completely restored it.” The team meticulously rebuilt the truck—assisted by electrical and plumbing contractors—adhering to stringent health and building codes, while ensuring the kitchen components and exterior aesthetics reflected their unique style. Additionally, Liegel said, “I built the website and designed the logos, and started marketing BaguetteAbout.it across social media. We invested $40,000 into the business. I own 75 percent of it, Thomas 25 percent. “Finally,” she continued, “10 months after getting the truck, many late nights, and uncountable hours of work, we started Conny Liegl (left) our food venture.”

ELEVATED EXPERIENCE Co-owners and Thomas Hernandez (right) hope to change people’s perceptions of food trucks as greasy fast-food providers.

CROSTINI CREATIONS BaguetteAbout.it customizes offerings based on the venue. A sample picnic box at a winery might include an oatmeal raisin cookie, Mediterranean side salad (recipe below), and a trio of crostini, such as Piggy Meets Goat, Pearfect Brie, and What a Catch.

Both partners cook, while Hernandez doubles as car mechanic, and Liegl handles customer service. BaguetteAbout.it debuted at the GBeatZ food truck location in Grover Beach on June 6 and already has bookings at wineries and special events lined up through September. Liegl says their food truck offers an approachable menu with seasonal and local vegetables, seafood, and meat options. “We put a fresh flair on traditional favorites and offer sophisticated items on local, fresh-baked baguette sandwiches,” she said. “We will be one of the only mobile food vendors in the 805 area that offers share platters and picnic-style foods for parties of two-plus, which is key to serving the many groups at wineries.” Their baguette provider is key to their success. While Liegl is an accomplished baker, the team realized that homemade baguettes posed an impossible time constraint. “We tried every baguette in the area,” Liegl said, and they eventually settled on Grover Beach Sourdough. “It’s organic, it’s local, it’s the perfect crunchiness on the outside and fluffiness on the inside. It’s what you would expect for a proper French baguette.” Jacob Town, who owns Grover Beach Sourdough along with his wife, Brooke, said he was honored to be chosen and also happy to support a new food business. “We are very proud of our bakery and its growing reputation,” Town said. “It is always very flattering when someone chooses us over any of the other bakeries because they are all doing a pretty amazing job.” The support from vendors, fellow foodtruck operators, and customers falls in line with Liegl and Hernandez’s core business motto: “Food creates community.” They point to two food-truck associations/locales, and hope to further their common business goals. “If we all got the jobs we wanted, we would all still be spread really thinly,” Hernandez said. According to their research, there are about 15 food trucks servicing the entire county, with several found Wednesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at GBeatZ, a converted parking lot owned by Epic Entertainment.

Liegl and Hernandez also plan to donate 3 percent of their monthly proceeds to the SLO Food Bank, which provides resources to nonprofit groups throughout the county. At the end of the day, the duo said that making food for people makes them happy. “One of my greatest joys in the restaurant is when I make something for somebody,” Hernandez said, “and you see them nodding their head when they eat it, doing the happy dance, or sharing it with somebody next to them. Nobody gets in arguments with food. Food is happiness. “Food is everything we need.” Δ Flavor writer Cherish Whyte loves a fresh baguette. Reach her through the editor at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

SECTION ONE. RECITALS. WHEREAS, the Templeton Community Services District Board of Directors has adopted Ordinance No. 2021-2, providing for the codification of the District’s codes and ordinances into the Templeton Community Services District Code (the “District Code”), which took effect on May 20, 2021; and WHEREAS, during staff’s review of the draft codified District Code, some instances were identified where sections of the Code differ from current practices and policies, and because of that, minor revisions to the District Code are necessary, and accordingly this Ordinance has been created to clean-up those provisions in the District Code; and WHEREAS, in addition to the other amendments to the District Code contained herein, Section 4.08.010 of the District Code includes a provision that provides as follows: “Purpose. Having obtained approval from the local agency formation commission to exercise latent cemetery service powers, the board of directors of the community services district hereby orders the exercise of those powers pursuant to Government Code § 61100 et seq.” WHEREAS, the District intends to seek divestiture of the cemetery service powers, since it has not implemented that power and cemetery district services are provided by a separate agency, the Templeton Cemetery District. Therefore Section 4.08.010 should be deleted from the District Code and, although the other amendments to the District Code adopted by this Ordinance will become effective thirty days after its adoption, it is appropriate to delay the effective date of the amendment to Section 4.08.010 until the Local Agency Formation Commission approves the divestiture of that power; and WHEREAS, based upon the foregoing recitals, the Board of Directors desires to adopt this Ordinance, to provide for the clean-up of the District Code.

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Author Albert Camus advised everyone to “steal some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self.” That’s excellent advice for you to heed in the coming days. The cosmos has authorized you to put yourself first and grab all the renewal you need. So please don’t scrimp as you shower blessings on yourself. One possible way to accomplish this goal is to go on a long stroll or two. Camus says, “It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter.” But I think you are indeed likely to be visited by major epiphanies and fantastic new meanings.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Author Aslı Erdoğan writes, “It had been explained to me from my earliest childhood that I would know love—or that thing called ‘love’—as long as I was smart and academically brilliant. But no one ever taught me how to get that knowledge.” I’m sorry to say that what was true for her has been true for most of us: No one ever showed us how to find and create and cultivate love. We may have received haphazard clues now and then from our parents and books and movies. But we never got a single day of formal instruction in school about the subject that is at the heart of our quest to live meaningful lives. That’s the bad news, Libra. The good news is that the rest of 2021 will be one of the best times ever for you to learn important truths about love.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Robert Mugabe was Zimbabwe’s leader for 37 years. In the eyes of some, he was a revolutionary hero. To others he was an oppressive dictator. He was also the chancellor of the University of Zimbabwe, where his wife, Grace, received her Ph.D. just two months after she started classes. I suspect that you, too, will have an expansive capacity to advance your education in the coming weeks— although maybe not quite as much as Grace seems to have had. You’re entering a phase of super-learning.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “We were clever enough to turn a laundry list into poetry,” wrote author Umberto Eco. Judging from astrological omens, I suspect you’re now capable of accomplishing comparable feats in your own sphere. Converting a chance encounter into a useful new business connection? Repurposing a seeming liability into an asset? Capitalizing on a minor blessing or breakthrough to transform it into a substantial blessing or breakthrough? All these and more are possible.

(June 21-July 22): “I was so flooded with yearning I thought it would drown me,” wrote Cancerian author Denis Johnson. I don’t expect that will be a problem for you anytime soon. You’re not in danger of getting swept away by a tsunami of insatiable desire. However, you may get caught in a current of sweet, hot passion. You could be carried for a while by waves of aroused fascination. You might find yourself rushing along in a fast-moving stream of riled-up craving. But none of that will be a problem as long as you don’t think you have something better to do. In fact, your time in the cascading flow may prove to be quite intriguing—and ultimately useful.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In my opinion, psychology innovator Carl Jung, born under the sign of Leo, was one of the 20th century’s greatest intellects. His original ideas about human nature are central to my philosophy. One of my favorite things about him is his appreciation for feelings. He wrote, “We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only half of the truth, and must, if it be honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.” I bring this to your attention, Leo, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to upgrade your own appreciation for the power of your feelings to help you understand the world.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): For the indigenous Ojibway people, the word Adizokan means both “story” and “spirit.” In fact, story and spirit are the same thing. Everything has a spirit and everything has a story, including people, animals, trees, lakes, rivers, and rocks. Inspired by these thoughts, and in accordance with cosmic omens, I invite you to meditate on how your life stories are central elements of your spirit. I further encourage you to spend some tender, luxurious time telling yourself the stories from your past that you love best. For extra delightful bonus fun, dream up two prospective stories about your future that you would like to create. (Info about Adizokan comes from Ann and John Mahan at sweetwatervisions.com.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Before he journeyed in a spaceship to the moon in 1971, Scorpio astronaut Alan Shepard didn’t think he’d get carried away with a momentous thrill once he arrive at his destination. He was a manly man not given to outward displays of emotion. But when he landed on the lunar surface and gazed upon the majestic sight of his home planet hanging in the sky, he broke into tears. I’m thinking you may have similar experiences in the coming weeks. Mind-opening, heart-awakening experiences may arrive. Your views of the Very Big Picture could bring healing upheavals.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian author Clarice Lispector observed, “In a state of grace, one sometimes perceives the deep beauty, hitherto unattainable, of another person.” I suspect that this state of grace will visit you soon, Sagittarius—and probably more than once. I hope you will capitalize on it! Take your time as you tune in to the luminescent souls of the people you value. Become more deeply attuned to their uniquely gorgeous genius.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Trailblazing Capricorn psychoanalyst Ernest Jones (1879-1958) said, “There is no sense of contradiction within the unconscious; opposite ideas exist happily side by side.” In other words, it’s normal and natural to harbor paradoxical attitudes; it’s healthy and sane to be awash in seemingly incongruous blends. I hope you will use this astrologically propitious time to celebrate your own inner dichotomies, dear Capricorn. If you welcome them as a robust aspect of your deepest, truest nature, they will serve you well. They’ll make you extra curious, expansive, and nondogmatic. (PS: Here’s an example, courtesy of psychologically savvy author Stephen Levine: “For as long as I can remember the alternate antics of the wounded child and the investigations of the ageless Universal played through me.”)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian guitarist Django Reinhardt was a celebrated jazz musician in occupied France during World War II. Amazingly, he was able to earn good money by performing frequently—even though he fit descriptions that the rampaging Germans regarded as abhorrent. Nazis persecuted the Romani people, of which he was one. They didn’t ban jazz music, but they severely disapproved of it. And the Nazis hated Jews and Blacks, with whom Reinhardt loved to hang out. The obstacles you’re facing aren’t anywhere near as great as his, but I propose we make him your role model for the next four weeks. May he inspire you to persist and even thrive in the face of challenges!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean author Richard Matheson believed we’ve become too tame and mild. “We’ve forgotten,” he wrote, about “how to rise to dizzy heights.” He mourned that we’re too eager to live inside narrow boundaries. “The full gamut of life is a shadowy continuum,” he continued, “that runs from gray to more gray. The rainbow is bleached.” If any sign of the zodiac has the power to escape blandness and averageness, it’s you Pisceans— especially in the coming weeks. I invite you to restore the rainbow to its full vivid swath: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Maybe even add a few colors. ∆
