Cambria health care district weighs vaccine mandate for staff

T

he Cambria Community Healthcare District is considering a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all district employees, with few exceptions, becoming the first known San Luis Obispo County agency to formally consider making vaccination status a condition of employment. The district, which provides emergency medical and ambulance services to the town of Cambria and its surrounding areas, discussed a draft of the policy at its July 27 board meeting, voting unanimously to consider it further, calling vaccinations an “ethical responsibility” for health care workers. “I’ve talked to a variety of people, and consistently, they say they want [district staff] vaccinated,” Board President Iggy Federoff said at the meeting. Under the draft policy, Cambria carves out exceptions for employees with documented healthrelated conditions and for those with “sincerely held” religious beliefs related to vaccinations. The board also signed off on a memo that will go out to district staff to encourage them to get vaccinated and forewarn of a potential mandate. The district is also incentivizing vaccinations by awarding employees who receive them with $100 gift cards. “It is the unanimously held view of the board that as first responders, you have a responsibility to our community to protect residents from the potential of unnecessary exposure to COVID-19,” the memo reads. “Many of the people we serve are already suffering from illness or injury that would place them at greater risk of dying should they contract COVID-19.” Cambria stands alone in SLO County in having a local health care district. The rest of SLO County contracts with San Luis Ambulance, a private company, for equivalent services. Cambria has 32 district employees, and Administrator Mike McDonough said he could not disclose what percentage of them are vaccinated.

“We’re tracking that. It’s delicate,” McDonough said. “At this point, they have the right to choose.” New Times reached out to San Luis Ambulance to ask whether it was also considering a similar vaccine mandate for its staff, but did not hear back before press time. Cambria’s discussion took place one day after Gov. Gavin Newsom unveiled a new executive order requiring all state employees and public and private health care workers to provide proof of vaccination or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing, as cases of the Delta variant soar statewide. McDonough said that the Cambria district is working to understand and comply with the governor’s order, which has to be implemented by Aug. 23. “This thing is evolving,” he said. As the district considers a mandate, one of the sticking points is whether it has to first wait for the FDA’s full approval of the vaccines. McDonough told district board members on July 27 that he’s concerned about liability if the district passed a policy prior to that—to which board member Cecilia Montalvo offered a rebuttal. “I’m very concerned about the liability with one of our community members becoming infected [by an unvaccinated first responder],” Montalvo said. Tenet Healthcare, which owns Sierra Vista and Twin Cities hospitals, said in a statement that it will not require vaccinations for staff while they remain under emergency-use authorization by the FDA. “We are closely monitoring trends and are making adjustments daily to ensure our staff, physicians, and patients are protected,” Tenet Health Central Coast said in a statement. Both Tenet and Dignity Health, which owns French and Arroyo Grande hospitals, said they plan to comply with Newsom’s order mandating regular COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated health workers. COVID-19 is back on the rise on the Central

Paso clears riverbed, gets more homeless calls

associated with homeless individuals in the riverbed. In addition, the city cleared 181 acres of hazardous fuels in the riverbed during 2020, and put 650 goats in the riverbed corridor to graze on vegetation earlier this year. Fires are just one of the issues the city addresses in a FAQ sheet the city released in June due to what it said was an “increase in requests for information about legal and safety issues surrounding homeless residents and riverbed clearing.” The FAQ sheet states that the Paso Robles Police Department typically responds to about 1,000 calls per year for service related to homeless and mental health related needs. Midway through 2021, the department had already responded to 800 such calls. “As the city continues cleanup efforts, there are more homeless moving from the riverbed to the city, parks, etc. This relocation out of the riverbed is likely contributing to the increase in calls for service,” Lewis told New Times via email. “Most of our calls for service are on the west side of Paso Robles … west of the Salinas River. Many of the homeless gravitate to this area to obtain needed services, such as what ECHO provides.” ECHO (El Camino Homeless Organization)

Between July 13 and 22, Paso Robles removed an estimated 19,000 pounds of trash and discarded items from the Salinas Riverbed between Niblick Road and its city limits to the north. Paso police also arrested six area residents for charges associated with having an illegal fire, drug possession, and refusing to vacate and remove property from a designated high risk fire area, according to a July 23 press release. At the June 3 Paso City Council meeting, Paso Fire Chief Jonathan Stornetta said due to drought conditions and an increased fire risk, he declared the area as high risk on May 24 due to the extreme drought and an 18 percent increase in riverbed fire activity over last year. “There is an imminent threat to life safety for those individuals living in the riverbed,” Stornetta said. Paso Police Chief Ty Lewis told New Times that the cleanup is the most recent effort to clear the riverbed. The 9.5 tons of stuff recently hauled out of the riverbed joins 41.8 tons of trash that the city removed from the riverbed between September 2020 and June 2021 to address fire hazards

SHOT MANDATE? The Cambria Community Healthcare District is considering passing a mandate requiring employees to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

Coast. Between July 20 and 27, SLO County added 253 new cases, almost double the prior week’s total, and one new death. Five residents are hospitalized with the virus, with one in the ICU. There are 285 active cases in the county— the most in several months. SLO County Public Health is holding a press conference at 12:15 p.m. on July 29 to update the community on COVID-19 and discuss “the importance of getting vaccinated.” Officials say the overwhelming majority of new cases are among unvaccinated residents. On July 27, the CDC issued new guidelines asking all residents in communities where COVID-19 transmission rates are “high or substantial” to wear masks again in indoor settings. Δ —Peter Johnson Paso Robles started providing services about seven months ago at a Motel 6 that was converted into low-income housing, an emergency shelter, and homeless services center. The project was possible through a partnership with the Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, and a $15 million Project Homekey grant. ECHO President and CEO Wendy Lewis presented an update at the June 3 City Council meeting, saying that ECHO had filled the 42 rooms available for overnight shelter and exceeded its goals within a month of being open. The shelter has 50 available beds that serve as emergency overnight shelter and part of a 90-day intensive residency program designed to get people housed. “We are full almost every single night, almost since the beginning of our operations,” she told New Times, adding that about 20 percent of the beds are allocated for the 90-day program. At the June 3 meeting, she said that ECHO Paso Robles had served 500 unduplicated individuals in its first six months and helped 23 people get employed and 34 people get housed. ECHO’s Lewis told New Times that those numbers had increased since the meeting. Forty individuals and families have found permanent NEWS continued page 6

The city of San Luis Obispo handed out its third and, for now, final cannabis storefront permit on July 14, with city planning commissioners unanimously approving plans for a dispensary at 3535 South Higuera St., between Prado Road and Granada Drive. SLOCal Roots received the conditionaluse permit and will establish about 2,000 square feet of retail space at the site of a former auto repair shop. City documents show a phased opening plan, with the dispensary planning to initially open in the property’s smaller, 386-square-foot office, before it moves into a larger main building after property improvements are complete. Founded by Austen Connella, an Atascadero native, SLOCal Roots also cultivates cannabis and has plans for a retail store in Los Alamos, according to its website. With the approval, SLO hit a citywide cap on dispensary permits, which the City Council set at three in its cannabis ordinance in 2018. The council has not given city staff direction to increase that number, according to officials. Of the three businesses that have received permits, only Megan’s Organic Market— also on South Higuera Street—is up and running. Natural Healing Center, located at the former site of Mission Thrift on Broad Street, has not opened its doors yet. The SLO Planning Commission received one letter in opposition to the SLOCal Roots dispensary on July 14, from its future neighbor. Property owner Bill Portzel said his building is home to five tenants, including a youth sports center. “We do not think that a cannabis store at [this] location is wise since we have these children coming and going every day including weekends,” his letter read. City Planner Kyle Bell told commissioners that SLO’s cannabis regulations do not have any setback rules for youth sports centers and noted that the dispensary met all of the stipulations of the local ordinance. —Peter Johnson

Dignity ends Anthem contract during ongoing dispute

As of July 16, Central Coast residents insured by Anthem Blue Cross lost innetwork coverage at French Hospital Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, Arroyo Grande Community Hospital, and Marian Medical Regional Center in Santa Maria, which are part of the nonprofit Dignity Health system. “Dignity Health and Anthem Blue Cross have been negotiating new contracts in good faith for six months,” Dignity Health Medical Foundation President/CEO Dr. Robert Quinn said in a statement emailed in response to questions from New Times. “We remain in active discussions and hope to reach a responsible new agreement soon that will protect patients’ access to the care they need.” In the meantime, an Anthem spokesperson said, patients can still access Dignity Health facilities for emergency medical services, as those are always considered a covered health benefit. Anthem is also providing transition assistance to those who are pregnant, are

undergoing a course of treatment, or have prior authorization for Dignity Health Services to ensure a continuum of care. Anthem said it’s continuing negotiations with Dignity to reach an agreement that brings the nonprofit health care provider back into its insurance network. “The problem is Dignity’s rates are sometimes the highest among all health systems in California, making it almost 30 percent more expensive than other health systems in the state,” Anthem’s spokesperson said. “We don’t think our members and customers should pay substantially more for health care at Dignity when they can receive quality care from the many other providers in our network, and we are working to fix that.” According to previous New Times reporting (“Big Health: A look at how the Central Coast’s two hospital systems shape local health care costs,” July 30, 2020), Dignity Health hospitals on the Central Coast set their prices about five times higher than what Medicare determined their costs to be in 2017. However, for-profit Tenet Healthcare’s Central Coast hospitals’ prices were even higher than that, at more than seven times the Medicare determined costs. Health care experts told New Times that integrated health care systems such as Dignity and Tenet use market leverage to receive higher reimbursements from private insurance providers. In an April post on the California Medical Association’s (CMA) website, the CMA said that the contract dispute between Dignity and Anthem came “on the heels of a similar contract renegotiation involving Dignity and Aetna.” Dignity and Aetna insurance company reached a threeyear agreement in April that resulted in no lapse in coverage. On Jan. 1, 2020, Dignity’s contract with Cigna insurance company in California expired, leaving thousands without innetwork coverage at Dignity Health centers. Cigna told the Ventura County Star that Dignity wanted Cigna customers to pay “more than what is normal in the region.” At the time, Dignity Senior Vice President for Payer Strategy and Relationships Tammy Wilcox told the Star: “At a time when many nonprofit community hospitals are struggling, Cigna is making billions of dollars in profits each year. … Yet Cigna is demanding that it pay local hospitals even less.” Dignity and Cigna eventually reached an agreement announced in September 2020 that returned the nonprofit system to Cigna’s network as of July 1, 2020. In the statement Dignity sent to New Times, President/CEO Quinn said that the nonprofit offered Anthem a proposal with rates that don’t even cover hospital inflation costs and are below increases included in prior agreements. “Dignity Health is a nonprofit health care system and California’s largest Medicaid provider and has lost money in recent years, while Anthem is a for-profit insurance company that earns billions of dollars in profits,” Quinn said. Anthem told New Times that it recognizes the fact that costs do increase, which is why it’s offered Dignity increases over current rates. But, it doesn’t believe Anthem members should pay “substantially more for health care at Dignity,” adding that the majority of its customers are on self-funded plans that pay for medical costs directly. “That’s why we continue to work with Dignity in addressing the high prices it charges so we can protect affordability, and ensure quality for consumers,” Anthem’s spokesperson said. ∆ —Camillia Lanham

Cave Landing is still standing New Cave Landing cleanup effort aims to encourage safety without trampling on the area’s unique personality

B

rian LoConte has been a frequent Pirate’s Cove visitor since he first moved to San Luis Obispo County in the late 1970s. He fell in love with the county’s most distinctive beach then for the same reasons he and many other community members still love it today: its undeveloped beauty, 24/7 access, and funky personality. Even its south facing orientation has its benefits, LoConte said, allowing for around-the-clock tanning on all sides. Throw in the beach’s long history as a clothing-optional destination, and all parts of the body can get some sun, too. “I like getting a real good tan,” LoConte said with a laugh. He also likes playing volleyball, gazing at the stars from the always open Cave Landing parking lot at night, and— although Pirate’s Cove is notorious for being somewhat lawless—he appreciates the lack of regulation to some extent. He doesn’t party much anymore, he said, but he does occasionally enjoy a cigar on the beach. “And it’s just nice to not have Harbor Patrol or somebody coming up to you and saying, ‘Sir, can you put that out?’” According to a county staff report from the SLO County Board of Supervisors March 16 meeting, Pirate’s Cove, Cave Landing, and those who frequent the area are often the source of complaints to law enforcement and public officials. The area lacks trash bins and bathroom facilities, ditches throughout the dirt parking lot make it difficult for cars to maneuver, and insufficient enforcement and 24-hour access mandated by the California Coastal Commission make it a popular spot for unpermitted late-night fires and overnight camping. Recently, according to county staff, semipermanent encampments of tents and RVs have become increasingly common, along with graffiti, trash, human waste, and discarded drug paraphernalia littering the parking lot and trails. Now, ongoing cleanup efforts in the

Cave Landing parking lot aim to strike a balance between the park’s quirky personality and some semblance of regulation and public safety. On March 16, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to integrate Cave Landing into the county park system, allowing the county to enforce regulations and protections there that are followed at other local park facilities. The board also voted to put nearly $499,000 in public facility fees, $129,358 in general fund revenue, and a $250,000 California Coastal Conservancy grant toward cleaning up the trails and parking areas. The county has already made some progress in removing graffiti and picking up trash, but it’s still in the process of obtaining a building permit for the parking lot. Staff say they hope see the project completed no later than December. LoConte hasn’t always been a fan of the county’s attempts to tamp down rowdy activities. In 2013, LoConte appealed an early proposal to develop Cave Landing, opposing the project’s plans to pave the parking lot with asphalt, which he said would have reduced available parking, ruined the rustic aesthetic of the site, and required the installation of stormwater runoff systems. He opposed a revised plan in 2016, which would have included the installation of a gate to close the parking lot at night—an attempt to discourage crime and overnight camping. Pirate’s Cove and Cave Landing, he said, are two

of the few coastal public lands community members can still access at night, and many residents don’t want to lose that because of a few overnight campers. “I don’t know that it’s a bad thing to have people occasionally do that up there,” LoConte said. “We certainly don’t want it to get to the point that it’s constant and dense.” The current project, however, has LoConte’s full support. Included are plans to collect trash at Cave Landing and install trash bins, level and fill the parking lot with gravel, clean up existing graffiti, and hire an additional park ranger to help maintain the site. Informational signage will remain limited and rustic, Pirate’s Cove will continue to be a clothing-optional beach, and community members will still be allowed 24-hour access. “It’s great,” LoConte said. Of course, not everyone agrees. At the March 16 Board of Supervisors meeting, Avila Beach resident Lucinda Borchard said the latest attempt to control Cave Landing doesn’t go far enough. “There’s no way to describe the amount of traffic that’s going up and down there. The encampment of homeless people is completely disgusting. Of course, you know, they’re not using restrooms,” Borchard said at the meeting. “So it’s a travesty on the environment itself. I urge a ranger near at least during daylight and closing the gate at night because what’s going on up there I’m sure is illicit drug issues plus a lot of other things.” Since 2019, there have been more than 750 calls to the SLO County PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM Sheriff’s Office for service related to Cave Landing and Pirate’s Cove, according to Public Information Officer Tony Cipolla, including 204 calls so far this year alone. Complaints, he said, often revolve around vandalism, intoxication, theft, and noise. This year, there have also been reports of rape, brandishing weapons, and domestic violence. Kurt Bretcher lives in an RV and parked overnight at Cave Landing until CHANGE AND COMPROMISE San Luis Obispo just recently. He said the County has plans to clean up Pirate’s Cove and Cave people who live there aren’t Landing, while maintaining the area’s quirky character. typically the source of

crime. Instead, residents self-regulate, he said, helping partiers and hikers during medical emergencies, cleaning up trash left behind by beachgoers, and calling law enforcement when needed. But shortly after the cleanup project was approved in March, staff from SLO County Parks, the Sheriff’s Office, 5Cities Homeless Coalition, and Transitions Mental Health Association made contact with several Cave Landing encampment residents to move the camp out and provide information about other shelter services. After the agencies made several more trips out to Cave Landing, remaining campers voluntarily cleared out of the site on May 13. But Bretcher said he and others feel like they’re being unfairly punished and pushed out of their homes over problems caused by others. SLO County Parks Director Nick Franco said there’s no way to make everyone happy, but it’s been his responsibility for the last several years to find an adequate compromise. “With the parking lot, everybody agrees that its current condition isn’t good,” Franco said. “The solution for fixing that is where it gets trickier.” After years of work with community members and other stakeholders, Franco landed on the current iteration of the cleanup project, which transitioned Cave Landing from vacant county land to a designated natural area, a category of county park similar to areas near Lopez and Santa Margarita lakes. Natural areas are less developed than other parks, but still include things like wheelchair accessible parking spots and viewing areas, which Franco said are features coming soon to Cave Landing. There won’t be public restrooms, but there will be trash cans and some limited informational signage. And now that Cave Landing is a park, regular park rules— like prohibitions on overnight camping and fires—can actually be enforced. At the same time, Franco said Parks and Rec folded the clothing-optional feature of Pirate’s Cove into the park’s permit, making it almost impossible to change. Twenty-four-hour access to the site will continue indefinitely. “So we’re trying to incorporate the culture that’s out there now and the feeling of that place,” Franco said, “but remove the criminal activity that occurs at night, the graffiti, the excessive trash.” ∆ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

News BY PETER JOHNSON

Shelter scramble Los Osos debates options for unhoused residents living by library, including a move to El Chorro campground

P

alisades Avenue in Los Osos runs north from Los Osos Valley Road and past a community park, community center, and library, before it dead-ends at a Catholic church. For the better part of the past 18 months, this quarter-mile stretch of road has served less as a community hub than as a living space for unhoused residents, who line its curbs with cars, RVs, and trailers. “We don’t enjoy this. It’s not like we want this,” said one lifelong Los Osos resident living in her car, who asked New Times not to publish her name. “It can happen to anybody.” In March 2020, when COVID-19 first hit, San Luis Obispo County established three safe parking areas where unhoused people could park, sleep, shower, and use a bathroom—including one in the Los Osos library parking lot. But after just three months, the county abruptly closed the sites, citing a lack of funding. While the sanctioned program ended, many residents on Palisades never left and more arrived. Now, Palisades is home to between 20 and 35 vehicles, depending on the night (or who you ask), while others camp in the nearby vegetation. Local advocates do their best to provide food, outreach, and support. Some citizens, both housed and unhoused, said they’ve witnessed fights, fires, drug deals, and discarded syringes. The situation has pushed many in Los Osos to a breaking point. As pandemic restrictions lift, community members are desperate to return to the community spaces centered on Palisades. But many don’t feel safe doing so. “That’s the heart of our town,” said Becky McFarland, a 36-year resident of Los Osos. “This is a crisis, and it’s made it so that so many people don’t want to go to the park with their kids or grandkids, or to the library. Nothing has been done. People need help.” Over the past few months, McFarland and fellow local Pat West have collaborated to develop a specific solution to the crisis they are now pleading with the county to embrace. Their proposal is to repurpose the El Chorro Regional Park campground off Highway 1 into a sanctioned encampment for the unhoused, starting with the residents of Palisades. “We’re trying to find something better than this street,” McFarland said. “We want services out there. We want what they can get at [40] Prado [shelter in SLO]. That’s not happening on Palisades.” Their proposal outlines a six-week transition to turn the 61-site campground into a 24/7 staffed, sanctioned encampment. The campsites could provide water, electricity, restrooms, and showers to residents, and be a hub for services, they argue. It could launch as a two-year pilot program and buy the county time to develop more permanent solutions. An online petition in support had more than 1,200 signatures at press time. Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson told New Times it was “a really constructive proposal.” Gibson said it addresses the main challenge at Palisades, which is that the county cannot enforce

overnight parking or camping ordinances without first providing adequate shelter alternatives, due to the federal court ruling, Martin v. Boise. “My feeling on it is it’s a good idea,” Gibson said. “What I like about it is they’ve identified a county asset and suggested that we devote that county asset to this mission. We are in the process right now of seeing whether it’s feasible.” There are several logistical challenges that the proposal raises, Parks and Recreation Director Nick Franco said. One is that El Chorro has a federal deed restriction that designates the property for recreational use. Another is that “a few thousand” camping reservations are booked through next July, as well as large events, like Live Oak Music Festival. Officials also have to consider park partners, like the SLO Botanical Garden and the Dairy Creek Golf Course, and water and wastewater capacity. “Once we’ve had an opportunity to look at these issues, … I will be able to comment more substantively. I expect that will take a few weeks to look into, however,” Franco said in a July 22 email. Yael Korin, who chairs an Unhoused Residents Committee at the Los Osos Community Advisory Council, feels that the park is too far away from Los Osos, isolated from city centers and services. While McFarland and West want to address that by adding a bus stop on the park side of Highway 1, Korin is skeptical. “Some people don’t have cars. Some people have a hard time walking. They’ll be further isolated from the community,” Korin said. “You want people to be integrated into the community, not isolated from the community.” Korin and her husband have supported residents on Palisades over the past several months by providing food, trash bags, and outreach, describing the street community as supportive and tight-knit. She said she doesn’t see how the county could successfully run a sanctioned encampment at El Chorro if it can’t provide basic services at Palisades. “They think there are going to be services there. How are they going to materialize there if they don’t materialize here?” she asked. Reactions to the proposal from four unhoused residents varied. Two residents with cars or RVs said they’d likely utilize it. All agreed that the project would not suit everyone. One resident was outright opposed. “All it is is a petition to try to get us out of here,” she said. “I’ve lived in this town for 56 years. I don’t want to leave my town I grew up in.” Korin said her committee prefers establishing sanctioned encampments closer to town and pursuing permanent solutions, like a tiny home village. McFarland, West, and Korin all agree on one thing: The situation on Palisades is untenable. Supervisor Gibson said he hears this message loud and clear. “We need to act on this,” he said. “If for some reason Chorro is not feasible to do, I want us to be ready with a functionally equivalent alternative.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

55 FICTION New Times’ annual short story contest winners include tales about death, money, and love

I

t doesn’t sound like much, but 55 words can cover a lot of ground. The shortest stories in the universe tie up loose ends, surprise people, kill people, and love people. This year’s stories were cheesy, mushy, dark, funny, and sad—some talked about Trump, COVID-19, aliens, time travel, and God. But out of the hundreds and hundreds of stories that were submitted, only two handfuls of stories were good enough to get published! Each year, New Times and the Sun bring you the best reader-submitted stories for our annual 55 Fiction contest, which is now more than three decades strong. Our 2020 judges include Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood, Sun Staff Writer Malea Martin, Associate Editor Andrea Rooks, and Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey. So get ready for tall tales, short turnarounds, and a laugh or two. —Camillia Lanham

Mija

Grandma used to steal horses. She talks about it in her sleep. She cries when the men catch her and screams when they put the rope around her neck. Every night before she hangs, I wake her up. I hand her the crumpled photo of her childhood horse, Mija, and watch her escape them again. Terek Cy Hopkins Cambria

Alarmed

Startled, heart racing, I glared angrily at the dark, diminutive beast. Its fiery red eyes flashing back at me. Its piercing, incessant screeches racking my every nerve. But looks do not, in fact, kill. Unfolding my fist with a violent burst, I slapped the unwelcome intruder into a silenced submission. Nine more minutes … . Jenn Lawrence Grover Beach

This just in: God cancels holy days

Real freedom

Freedom’s unattainable on Earth. James learned that in prison. The government tells us we’re free, they feed us the illusion of an American dream … They lie. Bars can be invisible.

Serious fantasy

“You’re yawning a lot.” “I had trouble sleeping last night.” “Did you try counting sheep?” “No. I got up and read fantasy.” “Fantasy? Sorcerers, princesses, and magic potions?” “No. That’s way too realistic for me. This is about a couple with three teenagers. All five of them are extremely happy together, and they never argue.” Steve Recchia Reno, Nevada

Stacked against

It seemed like hard work but I needed the money. The ad read: “$25 a cord for stacking wood.” I figured I could make a few hundred a day without too much effort. “Neat stable stacks, 4-by-4-by-8 feet required,” read the six-month contract. I signed. The company name—Toothpicks Galore. Bernard Paquette Jericho, Vermont

Domestic demons

Goodnight fever, Goodnight snot. Goodnight rotten children who whine a lot. Goodnight flooded toilet; Goodnight missed girlfriend dates. Goodnight grouchy husband who works way too late. Goodnight barking dog, Goodnight rotten cat (who just knocked over my water—thanks for that). Goodnight Advil PM (and Tylenol, too). Tonight I’m so thankful each day is new. Elizabeth McDermott Atascadero

Palm to face

“I respect your medical judgement, doctor, but this isn’t medical. Speaking as your financial advisor, don’t do this. It’s a Ponzi scheme. You’ll lose everything.” “Thank you. Speaking as your physician, do get vaccinated. This is medical, not financial.” “Never! Any idiot knows COVID’s a hoax!” “True. Any idiot knows that. Don’t be an idiot.” Steve Recchia Reno, Nevada


Run Panting breath. Muddy shoes. He ran and ran and ran. Snap! Fear filled his eyes as the sweat dripping down his face seeped into his clothes, burning his skin with the dangers of what was yet to come. “I can’t get caught.” “Tag, you’re it!” said 6-year-old Jake. Joanna Orda

Strife The child moved frantically. She hurried through her room, picking up her toys strewn across the floor. “This will fix it,” she thought, tears streaming down her cheeks.

Designated driver? Marie loved big cities. Even tonight, driving her drunk husband to the hotel after the party, she had fun. Bright lights flashed in her mirror.

Can I request substitutions? “And what can I get for you?” “That depends. Can I request substitutions?” “Absolutely. We always welcome creative substitutions.” “Thanks.

Could you substitute the gentleman from the next table for my husband?” Steve Recchia Reno, Nevada

A deadly deed She chooses her victims carefully before slaughtering those whose screams are inaudible in these silent fields. She smiles as she kills, peacefully humming as she strips them of their beauty. And at the sound of a dinner bell, she skips out of the field with the lifeless corpses resting in her woven basket.

Alien evidence littered our world, but never with lifeforms. Everyone feared the worst. The monstrous spaceship’s platform descended.

Finally, the apparent leader spoke. “Greetings from Earth! I’m King Elon Musk.” Dwaine Nelson Morro Bay

A final tea Jenny ate with delicate bites. Chewing slowly and deliberately, keeping her mouth closed just as Ms. Wharton taught them at this wretched school.

an Luis Obispo County has $2.3 million available as part of a $12 million effort to get around 1,000 new electric vehicle (EV) chargers installed in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and SLO counties. On Aug. 5, the California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) will start accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis. And the money goes fast, according to Vince Kirkhuff, an air quality specialist with the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (APCD), which contributed money to the fund alongside the SLO Council of Governments, Central Coast Community Choice Energy (3CE), and the California Energy Commission. “In the last few programs that they have opened, sometimes the funding is gone within hours,” Kirkhuff said. “What seems to be the best course of action is for potential site hosts, if someone wants to put a charger on their property, that they contact a vendor ahead of time, … get all of their ducks in a row before the program launches.” The goal is to help sprinkle 200 level 2 chargers and around 30 DC fast chargers around SLO County, although Kirkhuff said the number of chargers will depend on the size of the rebates that get awarded. Level 2 chargers, which charge electric vehicle batteries more slowly and would be a better fit for something like an office parking lot or an apartment building, are

Giving people who don’t have an opportunity to charge at home a place to get their cars charged up should help get California to its electric vehicle goals, he said.

I

’ve lived on the Central Coast for more than a decade now. In those 10 years I can count on one hand the number of friends and family who’ve been able to stay and raise their kids in the community we all know and love. And yet, in all the meetings I attend about SLO County’s economic recovery, job development, declining school enrollment, and growing traffic congestion, the need to address our housing shortage has faded into the background. I feel as though I’m standing in an elevator with three dozen elected officials, and we’re all hearing the background music, but no one is listening. The constant drone of “the rent is too high” has become the metronome in our city councils, chambers of commerce, and election cycles. We’ve become inured to home prices doubling in 10 years, dozens of applicants for each apartment, and rents that claim half our wages. Now, more than a year after the lockdown started and thousands of us lost jobs and loved ones to the pandemic, housing is even further out of reach than it was before. I can’t be the only frog feeling this pot get warmer. There are hundreds of new homes coming online in SLO County, from income-restricted apartments to luxury McMansions. While the latter is not exactly my favorite, I’m still glad to see them built. Yet the need for more homes at all income levels is so dire that I feel I must stress to you, my neighbors: We still need more. Despite what may feel like a building boom to many of us, the number of new home constructions—especially new multi-family homes—is still less than half what it was before the Great Recession, having been eclipsed by sleepy sunbelt towns like Akron, Ohio, and Mobile, Alabama. More than 80 percent of those homes at our peak building rate in 2004 were single-family houses, which remained largely out of reach to most of the folks working on the Central Coast. Even at that pace of new construction, there were few options for those who couldn’t afford the $400,000 median sales price of the day (a nostalgic thought when compared to today’s eye-popping list prices). Thus rents have continued to climb. As retirees and work-from-home professionals seek to relocate here from California’s major cities, we’re all feeling the squeeze—or, if we’re lucky, taking our equity and fleeing for cheaper pastures. The shortage of places to live cuts into every measure of our quality of life. We sit in traffic for hours each day to get to work and back, snatching time we could have with our families and money we

could spend in local shops. We can’t find reliable babysitters, who leave as soon as they graduate. Local businesses can’t attract and retain talent, stymying the efforts of every jurisdiction to diversify our regional economy. We can’t get health care because new physicians and nurses can’t afford to live here with their student loan debts. Our schools lose funding for every student who leaves for Texas and Idaho. New parents who would otherwise return to work can’t float the price of child care, costing families countless dollars in lost wages and productivity. There’s a fairly straightforward answer to this reality: Most lots in our region are only zoned for luxury housing. Our high land prices, rather than being shared across multiple buyers or tenants, are borne by only one. Want to house more than one family on your lot? You can, technically, apply to do that through a complex, time-consuming, and expensive process, known as upzoning, and hope it gets approved, or that the red tape doesn’t kill the project or render it unaffordable to those you’re trying to house. This makes it so the only builders who can navigate the approvals are those with big financial backers, who don’t build homes meant for our low-wage workforce. Small local contractors are priced out of helping our neighbors get into homes that work for them and their needs. The stopgaps in the building process, meant to keep a city accessible and democratic, have in fact done the opposite. And they’ve done it for the last several decades. What if we could streamline the system that allows this failure? There are two major bills moving through the Assembly right now that will give cities some tools to house our Poly grads, working families, seniors, and newly retired neighbors. Senate Bill 9 would permit lot splits, or duplexes, on most lots in California. Coupled with the recent bill permitting ADUs statewide, this would permit up to four homes where previously only one was allowed. These homes, often called “missing middle housing,” are critical options for folks who make too much to qualify for vouchers but don’t make enough to afford most market-rate housing. Additionally, SB 9 contains strict prohibitions on using this law in fire zones, on historic sites, in rural areas like Harmony or Pozo, or on prime farmland. It also contains tenant protections and anti-speculation rules, so that homes for tomorrow don’t come at the expense of evictions today. The companion bill, Senate Bill 10, would allow cities to upzone urban infill lots, up to 10 homes, without the cumbersome CEQA [California Environmental Quality Act] process. Since building housing in these places prevents sprawl and protects our hillsides, this strategy makes a whole lot of sense, especially since the overwhelming majority of CEQA lawsuits are for these

kinds of homes in the first place. Once passed, this bill would be an optional tool, rather than a statewide mandate. It’s high time our government gets serious about addressing the shortage of homes causing so much suffering in our communities. These bills are not silver bullets but are important steps in the long process of rebuilding California’s much needed housing stock. Please write to Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham today, and ask him to vote “yes” on SB 9 and SB 10 in the coming weeks. ∆ Krista Jeffries is a stay-at-home mom who fights for abundant housing in Grover Beach and beyond.

Letters Ask Morro Bay residents about annexation, development

The Morro Bay City Council seems to be headed toward annexing property in north Morro Bay to form five building lots and adjoining open space. This may or may not be legal and will likely result in legal challenges and expense for the city if the City Council takes this action. In 1984, as I was completing my first term on the Morro Bay City Council,

Measure F was passed by the voters in Morro Bay that resulted in Ordinance No. 266. Legal interpretations may differ, but most people felt this would prevent development of open space within the city limits or annexation and development of property bordering the city. This was because of the concern of impacts on limited city resources and services. Those concerns still exist today. In 1990, Measure H was voted on and passed to limit the development of the Williams Property across Highway 1 from today’s Albertsons shopping center. This was another example of the residents’ desire to keep Morro Bay from growing and impacting resources and services. Five building lots may not sound like much, but if this can happen, what might follow? I know many residents and, perhaps current members of the City Council, are not fully aware of all this history. The language in Section 7 of Ordiance No. 266 that resulted from the passage of Measure F states: “These policies and the zoning ordinances which now implement them may be amended or repealed only by a majority vote of the people at a regular or special election.” As someone who served two terms on the City Council and two terms as mayor, I understand how difficult the job can be. Given the history regarding growth, I strongly encourage the current City Council to explain why they feel this is a good thing to do, and then put an advisory vote on the ballot in the next scheduled election and let the residents tell them how they feel about growth. I stated earlier that it may or may not be legal to do this but, given the history, why not let the residents give their input? Hold an advisory vote on this matter during the next election.

Replacing Tommy Gong

A

nother lefty tantrum. Today’s liberals apparently feel entitled to rule by demand and insult. We are currently seeing a media campaign by Democratic partisans demanding the appointment of their favored candidate to replace former SLO County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong. The last two issues of this paper have featured letters to the editor insisting upon the summary appointment of Acting Clerk-Recorder Helen Nolan, and bitterly attacking the Board of Supervisors for conducting the customary statewide search for candidates. This is pretty unusual, since the position of clerk-recorder usually generates less heat and controversy than occurs in selecting “paper or plastic” at the supermarket. To recap, Tommy Gong served as clerkrecorder since his election in 2015 until June when he resigned. While I have no special insights into the operation of the office, my impression is that he did a good job. I do not recall any scandal, drama, or other problem in the office, and it seemed to operate quietly and effectively under his leadership. To a conservative like myself, that is all that we ask of government, and I would be happy to have him back at the position. His wife was subject to publicized criminal charges in 2019, but there was no allegation that Gong was involved. Following the 2020 election, the nation engaged in many contentious discussions of the security of the electoral process, and SLO County was no exception. At a meeting of the Board of Supervisors, strong citizen criticism of the ClerkRecorder’s Office was offered, including one racist comment directed at Gong. To hear liberal partisans tell it, this one racist comment was the functional equivalent of a lynch mob driving Gong out of town, displaying their usual gift for flaming hyperbole. Gong himself seemed to endure the incident stoically and with dignity. He had previously indicated that he was leaving to be near aging parents, although I suppose his wife’s legal problems may have also played a role. The Tribune waxed outraged because the conservative members of the board failed to argue with the speaker, and declined to participate in a political stunt expressing “unwavering support” for the office. During public comments, speakers sometimes utter all sorts of insane gibberish that is endured without comment. We’ll see if The Tribune calls for a similar defense of public officials the next time the local lefty loons barrage the sheriff or district attorney with florid abuse. The Tribune also attacked the conservatives for opposing same-day registration and early voting, and for supporting voter ID, positions well within the mainstream of political belief. In fact, a solid majority of voters favor voter ID, so the conservatives are hardly outliers. Of course, to a liberal, anyone who doesn’t enthusiastically buy in to their latest “big new thing” is obviously far beyond the pale. While Ms. Nolan, as the acting clerkrecorder, may eventually prove to be the strongest candidate for the job, it is both customary and prudent to look at a wider range of candidates before making a choice. This is especially true since, far from merely being a short-term

“caretaker” for the office, the incumbent will have a substantial advantage over challengers at the next election. In their angry advocacy promoting Ms. Nolan, one writer accused the supervisors of seeking “statewide candidates without proper qualifications,” despite having no knowledge of who they were talking to. Another charged them with being fiscally irresponsible since it would cost less to just accept their favorite candidate, and forgo further search. Still another accused the board of ignoring the “will of the people,” since dozens of letters have been sent in support of Ms. Nolan. It takes a special contempt for mathematics to deem “dozens” as reflecting a groundswell of popular support in a county with more than a quarter million people. Whoever is appointed as clerkrecorder should be nonpartisan—sort of a “political eunuch.” The position should involve just the fair, transparent, and mechanical application of the law, not political advocacy, nor acting as a champion for one group or another. The long-term health of our democracy depends up our elections being perceived as fair and untainted by the use of political operatives in the election process. I know of nothing about Ms. Nolan that would indicate that she wouldn’t be a good choice, other than her supporters’ shrill pronouncements that only she will do, and their rabid attacks on the supervisors for following the usual recruiting procedures. That raises suspicions. While The Tribune opines that Republicans “fear that they are increasingly unable to win,” this campaign suggests that it is the Democrats who fear that they will be unable to sell their political lunacy to the voters unless they cheat. It seems like the Democrats are attempting to tinker with and “massage” the voting process until it gives them the results that they want, instead of making the painful choice to tell their extremist wing to take a hike, and to tack back toward the moderate center. ∆ John Donegan is a retired attorney in Pismo Beach who would apply for the position, but is afraid that it would require far more work than he is accustomed to since he retired.

The Shredder

What a system!

I

’m sure some folks in Los Osos are thinking, “No good deed goes unpunished.” To mitigate homelessness in the early COVID-19 days, SLO County established a safe parking program at the Los Osos Library for unhoused people, providing access to showers and toilets. They ended the program three months later, citing lack of funding, but instead of the unhoused leaving the Palisades Avenue area, some stayed put and more came. Well, here we go again playing WhacA-Mole with the county’s unhoused residents, most recently with the proposal to “relocate” folks living in vehicles and camping around Palisades Avenue to the bucolic splendor of El Chorro Regional Park campground. I guess at the campground off Highway 1, they’d be “campers,” not “homeless people,” right? Ta-da! What’s the next trick? Ending opioid addiction by giving users a prescription for heroin? The El Chorro idea is the brainchild of Los Osos residents Becky McFarland and Pat West, who want their community hub back. The community park, community center, and library have become the de facto spot for the unhoused, and residents have reported seeing drug deals, finding used syringes, and generally feeling unsafe in the area. Homelessness sucks, and not just for the homeless, but can we agree that it

sucks more for them? I feel your pain, Los Osos, but do you actually feel the pain of your unhoused neighbors? McFarland and West are calling for the county to turn the 61-spot El Chorro campground into a 24/7 staffed, sanctioned space providing necessary services for unhoused county residents to park or camp. I applaud the idea of having an actual place to move the unhoused to rather than just driving them out of one area to have them pop back up in another, but in what world is this feasible? County Parks and Recreation Director Nick Franco, who oversees El Chorro, noted that the park has a federal deed restriction for recreational use only. Then there’s the matter of the “few thousand” camping reservations booked over the next year. Oh, and let’s not forget large events like Live Oak Music Festival that reserve the campground and surrounding area for annual events. I can’t imagine the SLO Botanical Garden and Dairy Creek Golf Course are excited by the prospect of their potential new neighbors. And water? Let’s remember that Dairy Creek reduced the size of its course because it didn’t have sufficient water to maintain it. Some unhoused people in cars and RVs might take the county up on the option

of moving to El Chorro, but that’s a long haul from Los Osos, and a lot of the people living along Palisades Avenue don’t want be shuffled off to some remote corner of the county—out of sight, out of mind. Unhoused advocate Yael Korin, chair of the Unhoused Residents Committee at the Los Osos Community Advisory Council, is skeptical of the El Chorro proposal. “How are [services] going to materialize [at El Chorro] if they don’t materialize here?” she asked. That’s an excellent point. Remember, funds for the safe parking program ran dry in three months. Korin is advocating for sanctioned encampments closer to town and pursuing permanent solutions like a tiny home village, but NIMBYism is as strong in Los Osos as anywhere else. Until we address the root of homelessness, which is a social safety “net” so full of holes nearly 600,000 Americans slip through it on a given night, we’re going to have homeless people living on the streets. Hiding them in El Chorro doesn’t change the statistic. And speaking of actuary tables and terrible segues, can you think of anything more boring and byzantine than medical insurance and billing? When you bring up our health care system, it’s easy to want to mentally check out, but something really ugly is happening in SLO County that seems to be part of a growing trend that will make accessing health care even harder than it already is, even for the insured.

“Wait,” some of you are saying, “America has the greatest health care system in the world!” Um, false. We have the most expensive, inefficient, broken system in the developed world, and what do we get for all that money wasted? Poor health outcomes. In case you haven’t heard, Dignity Health—which runs French Hospital and has a nearly monopolistic chokehold on South SLO County’s health care system— and Anthem Blue Cross, which insures a sizable portion of SLO County residents, are having a spat over money, and the losers are us. If you’re insured by Anthem, good luck accessing health care now that Dignity is “out of network.” “Yeah, well it’s better than socialized medicine. What about wait times and rationed care?” Sigh. When you call your primary care doctor, how soon can you get in to see her? Two months? Six? For most insured people, when we get sick, we go to a doc-inthe-box like Med Stop. It’s not like we can call and see our actual doctor immediately. And rationing? We the insured do that to ourselves! We worry about meeting our deductibles, copays, and whether we can afford our prescriptions. Getting sick sucks, finding a good doctor is difficult, and Dignity and Anthem grubbing over money is bullshit. Raise your hand if you want Medicare for all. ∆ The Shredder believes access to health care is a human right. Send reactionary anti-socialist fearmongering rants to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

SHREDDER Guitar wiz Joe Bonamassa plays Vina Robles Amphitheatre on July 31.

Vina Robles Amphitheatre reopens with guitarist Joe Bonamassa

J

oe Bonamassa was just 12-yearsold when he started his career opening for B.B. King. Now 32 years later, Bonamassa is one of the world’s preeminent blues guitarists and a helluva good singer-songwriter. He’s got 15 studio solo albums under his belt, most recently 2020’s Royal Tea, as well as 16 live albums and another 14 with some of his collaborations with Black Country Communion, Rock Candy Funk Party, and Beth Hart. To call him prolific seems like an understatement. Vina Robles Amphitheatre kicks off its season with Bonamassa on Saturday, July 31 (8 p.m.; all ages; tickets at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). The dude is a truly amazing guitarist with a smoky voice, and he’s frequently backed by a blistering-hot band and a trio of amazing female singers. Also at Vina, Banda MS De Sergio Lizárraga plays Sunday, Aug. 1 (7 p.m.; all ages; tickets at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). Founded in 2003 and hailing from Mazatlán, Sinaloa, in Mexico, this is authentic norteño music filled with harmonizing brass and percussion.

The Mid-State Fair continues

Pancho Barraza—née Francisco Javier Barraza Rodríguez, from Juan José Ríos, Sinaloa, Mexico—keeps things rolling during the 2021 Bud Light Seltzer Concert Series on the Chumash Grandstand this Thursday, July 29 (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $50.50 to $72.50 at midstatefair.com). The Latino vocalist has earned the title “The idol of the multitudes.”

ALMOST BOB Numbskull and Good Medicine bring Bob Marley tribute band One Drop Redemption to The Siren on July 30.

On Friday, July 30, Grammy Award winners Little Big Town land on the Chumash Grandstand (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $81.50 to $126.50 at midstatefair.com). Their breakthrough albums, Tornado and Pain Killer, generated a quartet of No. 1 singles including “Pontoon,” “Tornado,” “Day Drinking,” and “Girl Crush.” TikTok superstar Jason Derulo will close the concert series on Saturday, Aug. 1 (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $81.50 to $126.50 at midstatefair.com). With nearly 50 million followers, he’s among TikTok’s top 20 most popular artists. The singersongwriter and dancer has worked with Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Diddy, and Sean Kingston.

Bang the Drum reopens

After a successful soft opening a couple of weeks ago, Bang the Drum Brewery (1150 Laurel Lane, SLO) will host Moonshiner Collective this Saturday, July 31 (7 p.m. to midnight; 21-and-older; $20 presale at tinyurl.com/3cwjvjau or $25 at the door). It’s a little tricky to find but worth the search. Check their website for a map (bangthedrumbrewery.com). If you’re coming by bicycle (recommended!) it’s just off the bike path. The evening will start at 7 p.m. with The Hot 45’s (Reese Galido, Forrest Williams, and Hayden Gardner), followed at 8 p.m. by amazing Americana singer-songwriter Dan Curcio and his rotating ensemble of side players known as Moonshiner Collective. Soul Dust Productions will keep things rolling with an after-party.

Bob and B-Side

Numbskull and Good Medicine have two great shows coming up this week, starting with One Drop Redemption, the “premier Bob Marley Experience,” on Friday, July 30, at The Siren (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $16 presale at eventbrite. com or $20 at the door). If you dig Bob Marley, this is the place to be. B-Side Players hit The Siren next Thursday, Aug. 5 (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $15 presale at eventbrite.com or $20 at the door). This nine-piece ensemble incorporates “the sounds of Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico, and Brazil with the funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop rhythms of their homeland, dropping bits of cumbia, salsa, gritty street samba, son montuno, jarocho, and boogalo into the mix,” according to their bio.

Seven days of jazz

Earlier in July, jazz singer Deborah Gilmore was homeless and struggling to find a place to call her own. The talented vocalist—who sings jazz standards made famous by the likes of Nancy Wilson, Nat King Cole, and Sarah Vaughn, as well as songs by contemporaries such as Diana Krall and Michael Bublé—recently secured a one-bedroom, and starting this Sunday, she’ll be embarking on a series of intimate live performances. Sunday, Aug. 1, at Old SLO Barbecue (670 Higuera St., 3:30 p.m., $10); Monday, Aug. 2, at Libertine Brewing Co. (1234 Broad St., 7 p.m., $10); Tuesday, Aug. 3, at The Penny (664 Marsh St., 7 p.m., $10 cover or $30 with food); Wednesday, Aug. 4, at Buen

More music …

The Siren hosts rock violinist Patrick Contreras this Saturday, July 31 (7:30 to 10:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $15 presale at eventbrite.com or $17 at the door). Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Miles Davis, Ravi Shankar, and more have influenced the Fresno musician. After a long COVID-19 hiatus, Joy Polloi will be playing Atascadero’s Bristols Cider House on Friday, July 30 (7 to 9:30 p.m.; free), bringing their eclectic covers of the likes of Neil Young and Talking Heads as well as their originals. “Come partake of Bristols fine ciders and tasty Mexican fare from Don Jose’s food truck while we bring the Joy to you the Polloi,” said band leader Larry Allen. Get your rock ’n’ roll on when The Murder Hornets and Four Day Beard play The Raconteur Room on Saturday, July 31 (7 to 10 p.m.).

Local artists release an original comedy podcast, Foodies: An Abbreviated Musical

San Luis Obispo local Michael Kaplan wrote and produced an original musical comedy podcast, Foodies: An Abbreviated Musical, which is available to download through Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Audible, Soundcloud, and other outlets. This musical’s book and lyrics were written by Kaplan, while the music was composed by Kaplan and Jeff Mar. A handful of Central Coast residents can be heard on the podcast, with the cast including Tara Brinkman, Greg Gorrindo, Mark Klassen, and several other performers. In press materials, Kaplan has described the 50-minute podcast as an abridged version of the original show, or “a SparkNotes version of a musical comedy.” Originally the podcast was created as a marketing tool to pitch the recently completed musical to various theater companies, “but the feedback we’ve been getting suggests it works pretty well as a stand-alone hour of entertainment.” Without spoiling too much of the show’s locally inspired plot, Kaplan mentioned that the story is based on a food and wine festival that takes place in Paso Robles. Three of Kaplan’s plays have been produced by local theaters in the past, including Danny, Come Home, which was performed live at the Unitarian Universalist Church in San Luis Obispo in 2018. Find out more about Kaplan’s latest creative endeavor at stitcher.com/show/foodies-anabbreviated-musical.

It sort of appears. He shakes his head, which I take to mean he doesn’t think his paintings come to him that way. We go to his living room to look at more paintings, and I spy a portrait of Noah. Did he do that? “Yes.” Did he look at himself in a mirror to paint it or was it painted from memory. “Memory. Yeah, yeah.” He tells me his favorite animal is a frog, and I ask him if he hopes to sell his paintings or if he just wants people to see them. “Sell!” he says excitedly.

Abstract means from my head!” In his profile, he also says, “I feel peaceful and free when painting.

us (Christian Convery) is a young boy being raised by his Papa in a post-apocalyptic world, hidden away from society for his safety because Gus isn’t like a “normal” kid in one big way: He’s half human and half deer, and there is no hiding his horns. If he’s found out by the world at large, he’ll be captured, experimented on, even killed for being who he is, but he isn’t the only anomaly out there. The human race is morphing into a race of half-breeds, and scientists can’t explain if the new race carries a virus that infected and wreaked havoc on the world or is merely protected from it.

o-writer and director Navot Papushado (Rabies, Big Bad Wolves) helms this action crime drama that’s essentially a female John Wick. The story focuses on Sam (Karen Gillan), a female assassin who’s assigned by her handler, Nathan (Paul Giamatti), to retrieve some stolen money. After that job goes awry, Nathan learns Sam also killed the son of a local gangster, and soon she has a target on her back. While much of the action and combat lacks the bone-crushing intensity of the John Wick franchise, there’s a bit of fun to be had in this stylized shoot-’em-up flick that features appearances by a number of badass female characters including Sam’s estranged

assassin mom (Lena Headey) and three of her former associates (Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh, and Angela Bassett). All that female energy is a blast, but the story doesn’t capitalize on it as a commentary on male fantasy violence, which is unfortunate. As a pure adrenaline rush of action and mayhem, it falls snuggly into the Smokin’ Aces (2006) and Shoot ’Em Up (2007) school of cartoon violence. There’s also a little girl (Chloe Coleman) for Sam to take under her wing. It’s fun but forgettable, but it’s also free with your Netflix subscription. So if action is your cup of tea, it’s worth a watch. (114 min.) Δ —Glen

Urban tasting trend Ragtag opens its doors in downtown San Luis Obispo and hopes other wineries will follow suit

D

owntown San Luis Obispo has hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, historic buildings, and parks. It also has loads of tourists, which swell the city’s 47,000 population. Until recently it lacked one vital ingredient: a tasting room. With hundreds of wineries fanning out across the county—and annual visitors estimated at 7 million, according to tourist board Visit SLO CAL—local entrepreneurs Deron and Sarah Brewer thought the concentrated downtown audience would provide a lucrative secondary outlet for the industry. So they brought their Ragtag Wine Co. to Higuera Street, SLO’s main pedestrian artery. While Paso Robles has a thriving downtown wine scene, with 20 tasting rooms and another 30-plus just 5 miles south in industrial complex Tin City, downtown San Luis Obispo has largely missed the boat, the Brewers said. “We are really hoping that we can lead the charge to bring other wineries to downtown San Luis Obispo,” Deron Brewer said. “That would benefit us all because not everybody wants to drive to Paso or even Edna Valley.” Brewer said wineries find strength in numbers. “I call it the Kettleman City effect,” he explained. Halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles along Interstate 5, Kettleman City provides a convenient stop for gas. “If you’re driving down the freeway and you see just one gas station, you’re probably not going to stop,” he said, “but if you see several options, you might pull off.” One tasting room might not prove a huge draw, but multiple options within walking distance of each other would help establish SLO as an urban wine destination, he continued. The Brewers, who own several businesses in town, including Edna Valley Market and Dave’s Automotive, had always dreamed of owning their own winery. The conditions were ripe when Sarah’s brother, Jeff Huskey, graduated from Cal Poly with a degree in wine and viticulture. After a three-year stint at Harmony Cellars as its assistant winemaker, Huskey was ready for the lead job. The trio launched their Ragtag label in 2016. Operating out of a partially finished wine production facility on Clarion Court and producing only 2,000 cases annually, Huskey quickly established himself as an accomplished winemaker, with multiple accolades already under his belt. His 2017 chardonnay, petite sirah, pinot noir, malbec, and Meritage, as well as his 2019 rosé, have garnered industry awards ranging from gold and platinum to Wine

The tasting room is open daily from noon to 9 p.m. at 779 Higuera St. in downtown San Luis Obispo. Stay tuned for details on its grand opening celebration, slated for Aug. 20. Visit ragtagwineco.com or follow the company on Instagram and Facebook @ragtagwineco.

Enthusiast’s Editor’s Choice designation. With the winemaker position filled, the co-owners set out to find the perfect person to run their future tasting room. Brewer found the ideal candidate at the Madonna Inn in late 2019. Steakhouse and banquet server Patrick McTiernan “blew me away,” he said. “I fell in love with him as soon as I met him. I went home and told my wife I’ve found the perfect guy. I was amazed by how incredible he was at everything he did. We went to coffee after that, and it took off from there,” Brewer said. McTiernan had years of management experience at restaurants in Portland before moving to the Central Coast in 2016 and landing a position at the Madonna Inn. Initially, McTiernan shadowed Huskey at the production facility, receiving a crash course in winemaking. Then, in 2020, another cog fell into place. The Brewers found the ideal tasting room. “We went downtown to Higuera and Chorro streets,” Brewer said, “and serendipitously there was a spot exactly where we wanted to be that had just become available. It was in the perfect building and the perfect space.” The Brewers secured the tasting room at 779 Higuera St. and set about transforming the former Pura Vida skin care store into a hip hangout with an eclectic ambience. “The name Ragtag is a tribute to the diversity of the terroir of the area,” Brewer said. “It celebrates our abundant grape varieties, but also reflects every other aspect of our new business venture. “The basic premise behind Ragtag is how absolutely boring and drab everything would be if people were exactly the same. It’s the concept that it’s the differences between us that make things interesting and fun, and allow people to grow and do better,” he added. “As we bring more people into the project, their unique perspectives make us all … better off as a whole. That is our metaphor representation for what we mean as a brand.” After a soft opening earlier this year— and maneuvering COVID-19 related obstacles—the Ragtag team plans to celebrate its official grand opening on Aug. 20. McTiernan feels the tasting room has all the necessary elements to flourish: incredible wines, a cool vibe, outstanding service, and unique décor. “These were the four points I wanted

to hit,” he said. “I kept that mantra going in my head. That’s what people tell their friends about.” Meanwhile, at the winery production facility, Ragtag nabbed the dynamic duo of Alyssa Ball and her assistant, a blind chocolate Labrador named Scout. Ball ran the direct-to-consumer program at Talley Vineyards in Arroyo Grande for more than a decade before becoming Ragtag’s administrator and e-commerce sales director. “Patrick and I make a great team because we are both in positions that allow us to play to our strengths,” Ball said. “Patrick is a hospitality super star and thinks through every detail to ensure an amazing customer experience. “I love to live in the numbers, dive into data and metrics, create sales projections—all that exciting stuff! Between the two of us I believe we are going to be able to build out a great roadmap for Ragtag’s future.” Recent customers Pam and Jeff Forrest were so impressed with their overall experience at Ragtag that they joined its wine club. “The crew at Ragtag were attentive, informative, and friendly,” Jeff said. “Patrick is delightful and is an excellent historian about the building, the landlord,

the winemaker, the décor, and … how Ragtag got started. “Pam loved the chardonnay the best, and I teeter-tottered back and forth between the cab sauv and the Meritage.” The Ragtag team is just getting started. Future plans include a second tasting room and event venue at the wine production facility, as well as art workshops and other unique experiences at the downtown tasting room. Huskey, meanwhile, plans to drop a “flavor bomb,” with a 2019 single-varietal petit verdot. “Most often you only see [petit verdot] used as a blending tool, and that’s to add tannins and mid-palate weight to whatever they’re blending it with. But as 100 percent, it’s just delicious,” he said. Additionally, Huskey plans to harvest syrah and grenache, then blend the two with a dash of pinot noir to create a GSP. “I always try to have interesting new things that we’re releasing,” he said. “In the world of wine, they always consider us California winemakers as cowboys doing crazy stuff. I love it. I never want our tasting menu to get stale.” ∆ Flavor Writer Cherish Whyte’s new summer sip of choice is Ragtag’s albariño. Reach her at cwhyte@newtimesslo.com.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Send descriptions of your wildly hopeful dreams for the future. Newsletter@freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): What does it mean to feel real? Some people have a hard time doing that. They have such false ideas about who they are that they rarely feel real. Others are so distracted by trivial longings that they never have the luxury of settling into the exquisite at-home-ness of feeling real. For those fortunate enough to regularly experience this treasured blessing, feeling real isn’t a vague concept. It’s a vivid sensation of being conscious in one’s body. When we feel real, we respond spontaneously, enjoy playing, and exult in the privilege of being alive. After studying your astrological potentials, Aries, I suspect that you now have an enhanced capacity to feel real.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now is a fantastic time to seek out effervescent socializing and convivial gatherings and festive celebrations. If you surround yourself with lively people, you’ll absorb the exact influences you need. May I suggest you host a fun event? If you do, you could send out invitations that include the following allures: “At my gettogether, the featured flavors will be strawberry chocolate and impossibly delicious. There’ll be magic vibrations and mysterious mood-enhancers. Liberating conversations will be strongly encouraged. Unpredictable revelations will be honored. If possible, please unload your fears and anxieties in a random parking lot before arriving.”

(April 20-May 20): When she was a child, author Valerie Andrews visited her secret sanctuary at sunset every day for seven years. She lay on the ground among birch trees and aromatic privet plants, feeling “the steady rhythmic heartbeat of the earth” as she basked in the fading light. I’d love for you to enjoy the revitalizing power of such a shrine. The decisions you have to make will become clear as you commune with what Andrews calls “a rootlike umbilicus to the dark core of the land.” Do you know of such a place? If not, I suggest you find or create one.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I suspect that your immediate future will be a patchwork of evocative fragments. You may be both annoyed and entertained by a series of flashing attractions, or an array of pretty baubles, or a hubbub of tasks that all seem at least mildly worth doing. Chances are good that they will ultimately knit together into a crazy-quilt unity; they will weave into a pattern that makes unexpected sense. In the spirit of the spicy variety, I offer three quotes that may not seem useful to you yet, but will soon. 1. “Isn’t it possible that to desire a thing, to truly desire it, is a form of having it?” —Galway Kinnell 2. “It is not half so important to know as to feel.” —Rachel Carson 3. “Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.” —Pema Chödrön

(June 21-July 22): A Tumblr blogger named Cece writes, “The fact that you can soak bread in sugar, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla, then butter a pan and fry said bread to make a meal is really liberating.” I agree. And I share this with you in the hope of encouraging you to indulge in other commonplace actions that will make you feel spacious and uninhibited. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll thrive on doing day-to-day details that excite your lust for life. Enjoying the little things to the utmost will be an excellent strategy for success.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo poet Renée Ashley articulates a perspective I recommend you adopt. She writes, “I’m drawn to what flutters nebulously at the edges, at the corner of my eye—just outside my certain sight. I want to share in what I am routinely denied, or only suspect exists. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to occur.” With her thoughts as inspiration, I advise you to be hungry for what you don’t know and haven’t perceived. Expand your curiosity so that it becomes wildly insatiable in its quest to uncover budding questions and raw truths at the peripheries of your awareness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person,” declared Virgo actor Greta Garbo (1905-1990). “It is not right that you should tell them,” she concluded. “You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.” I presume Greta was being melodramatic. My attitude is the opposite of hers. If you find allies who listen well and who respect your vulnerability, you should relish telling them the secrets of your heart. To do so enriches you, deepens you, and adds soulful new meanings to your primary mysteries. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to seek this wise pleasure in abundance.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Andrew Sean Greer writes, “As the Japanese will tell you, one can train a rose to grow through anything, to grow through a nautilus even, but it must be done with tenderness.” I think that’s a vivid metaphor for one of your chief tasks in the coming weeks, Scorpio: how to carefully nurture delicate, beautiful things as you coax them to ripen in ways that will bring out their sturdiness and resilience. I believe you now have an extra capacity for wielding love to help things bloom.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Suggested experiments to try soon: 1. Remember a past moment when you were touched with the sudden realization that you and a person you’d recently met were destined to fall in love. 2. Remember a past moment when you kissed someone for the first time. 3. Remember a past moment when someone told you they loved you for the first time or when you told someone you loved them for the first time. 4. Allow the feelings from the first three experiments to permeate your life for five days. See through the eyes of the person you were during those previous breakthroughs. Treat the whole world as expansively and expectantly as you did during those times.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn poet Kenneth Rexroth was shirtless as he strolled along a rural road. To his delightful amazement, a fritillary butterfly landed on his shoulder, fluttered away, landed again, fluttered away—performed this dance numerous times. Nothing like this had ever happened to him. Later he wrote, “I feel my flesh / Has suddenly become sweet / With a metamorphosis / Kept secret even from myself.” In the coming days, I’m expecting at least one comparable experience for you. Here’s your homework: What sweet metamorphoses may be underway within you— perhaps not yet having reached your conscious awareness?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Each time we don’t say what we want to say, we’re dying.” Aquarian artist and singer Yoko Ono said that. I will add a further nuance: Each time we’re not aware of the feeling or experience or situation we want, we’re dying. And these will be key themes now that you’ve entered the "I know what I want and I know how to ask for it ” phase of your cycle. The most healing and vivifying thing you can do during the next six weeks is to be precise about your desires.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In 1829, Piscean author Victor Hugo began work on his novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He had other projects, though, and by September 1830, he had made scant progress on Hunchback. Growing impatient, his publisher demanded that he finish the manuscript by February 1831. In response, Hugo virtually barricaded himself in his room to compel himself to meet the deadline. He even locked his clothes in a closet to prevent himself from going out. For the next five months, he wore only a gray shawl as he toiled nonstop. His stratagem worked! I recommend you consider trying a somewhat less rigorous trick to enforce your self-discipline in the coming weeks. There’s no need to barricade yourself in your fortress. But I hope you will have fun taking stringent measures. ∆
