SLO County to ‘review’ Dayspring cannabis permits in wake of bribery charges

S

FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

an Luis Obispo County and three local cities are conducting internal reviews of their cannabis programs after Natural Healing Center dispensary founder Helios Dayspring pleaded guilty to bribing late SLO County 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill and attempting to bribe former Grover Beach Mayor John Shoals in exchange for favorable votes and permits. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a plea deal with Dayspring on July 28 in which Dayspring admitted to paying bribes to Hill totaling $32,000 between 2016 and 2019. The bribes, given to Hill intermittently in cash or money orders, led to Hill casting votes and pushing for policies at the county that favored Dayspring’s businesses and the cannabis industry, according to the DOJ. After one Board of Supervisors meeting in April 2019, Hill reportedly texted Dayspring: “[Y]our industry should give me one giant French kiss wrapped in money after my work today.” In 2017, Dayspring also attempted to bribe former Grover Beach Mayor Shoals in exchange for two cannabis dispensary permits in the city, according to the plea deal. Shoals did not accept the $100,000 bribe, but Dayspring did ultimately receive one dispensary permit from the Grover Beach City Council in 2018. The DOJ also charged Dayspring with tax evasion for underreporting roughly $9 million in personal income between 2014 and 2018. He’ll have to pay $3.4 million in restitution to the IRS, plus penalties, according to the plea. Dayspring faces up to 13 years in prison for the crimes, a length that includes sentencing reductions for his cooperation. SLO County Chief Administrative Officer Wade Horton wrote a message to the entire county organization on July 30 following the DOJ’s announcement. “It’s with extreme disappointment that I

learned about former Supervisor Hill’s poor decision to participate in bribery,” Horton wrote. “Corruption will never be tolerated in our organization.” As the public reels from the news, county and city officials addressed questions about what happens next. Natural Healing Center currently operates dispensaries in Grover Beach and Morro Bay, and has plans to open one soon in San Luis Obispo. The CORRUPTION Late SLO County 3rd District Adam Hill company also owns cannabis farms accepted $32,000 in bribes from cannabis businessman throughout SLO County.

Trevor Keith, planning and building director “We are currently carefully reviewing Natural at SLO County, said that all county cannabis Healing Center’s permit applications, documents, permits or permit applications that are tied to and statements that involved him,” SLO City Dayspring are now under review. Manager Derek Johnson said. “To our knowledge, “The county administrative officer, county he has no current interest in any permitted counsel, and the director of planning and cannabis businesses in SLO.

Former IWMA board secretary charged with embezzlement

In August 2018, IWMA’s then manager Bill Worrell wrote a letter announcing his retirement, in which he said that his decision was primarily motivated by wanting to spend more time with his family and address health issues. However, Worrell wrote the letter the day before IWMA’s board voted to place him on paid administrative leave until he officially retired on Sept. 11, 2018. That vote came after a private investigator alleged that Worrell was misusing agency money, which sparked the SLO County District Attorney’s Office to investigate. According to previous New Times reporting, former IRS auditor Carl Knudsen authored the report that led to the DA’s investigation. In the report, Knudsen said there was a “lack of documentation” for $445,000 in expenses on the IWMA credit card issued to Worrell. He added that several transactions on the card “appeared to be personal in nature.” In a letter Worrell sent to Deputy District Attorney Michael Frye in July 2018, Worrell said he provided the DA’s Office with credit card statements, receipts, and other documents. The DA’s Office declined to comment on the recently filed criminal complaint. —Camillia Lanham

The SLO County District Attorney’s Office recently filed embezzlement charges against Carolyn Grace Goodrich, who served as the SLO County Integrated Waste Management Authority’s (IWMA) board secretary through 2018. The complaint filed in SLO County Superior Court on Aug. 3 lays out nine counts of felony embezzlement and one count of felony public records violations as well as requests a warrant for Goodrich’s arrest. Court documents allege that while Goodrich was an IWMA employee between 2014 and 2018, she used public funds to pay AT&T $14,181 for personal bills, purchase TurboTax software for personal use, buy personal goods at Lowe’s, and pay for online services from Truthfinder, PeopleFinders, and PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records). The DA’s Office also alleges that in August 2018, Goodrich had possession of a public “record, map, book, paper and court proceeding” and “did steal, remove, secrete, destroy, mutilate, deface, alter, and falsify said document.”

Witnesses testify in Kristin Smart murder case hearings

Sitting at opposite sides of a courtroom counsel’s table, Paul and Ruben Flores stare ahead at the San Luis Obispo County Superior Court bench, their expressionless faces partially covered by masks. SLO County Deputy District Attorney Chris Peuvrelle steps in front of them at around 10 a.m. on Aug. 3 and places down an image of a young woman, who’s projected onto a screen for the courtroom to see. “Do you recognize this person?” Peurvrelle asks his first witness of the day, who’s on the stand. “That’s Kristin. That’s Kristin Smart,” answers Steven Flemming, a former dormmate and friend of Smart’s at Cal Poly in 1996, the year when the then-19-year-old freshman disappeared. As the half-full courtroom stares at the image, Paul, 44, and his father, Ruben, 80, don’t react—their gazes steadfast. The son and father are accused of first-degree murder and NEWS continued page 6

accessory to murder, respectively, in the 25-year-old disappearance of Smart. It’s the second day of preliminary hearings in the case—a court proceeding that’s expected to last 12 or more days. During the all-day hearings, witnesses and evidence are presented to presiding Judge Craig van Rooyen. The prosecution, led by Peuvrelle, is trying to show probable cause for a trial, while the defense, led by Paul’s lead defense attorney, David Sanger, raises objections and presents alternative evidence. According to the allegations submitted by the SLO County DA’s Office, Paul murdered Smart in his Cal Poly dorm room in the midst of a rape or attempted rape on May 24, 1996, after the two freshmen walked home late at night from a party. Ruben is accused of helping Paul conceal Smart’s body, burying her under his Arroyo Grande deck for more than two decades, before her remains were recently relocated to an unknown location. Both defendants are pleading not guilty. Flemming, Smart’s former dormmate, took the stand all morning on Aug. 3 as Peuvrelle and Sanger peppered him with questions. Flemming described Smart as a mature 19-year-old who was “a kind person” and “saw the world differently.” “We talked a lot. She was a friend,” Flemming, who played basketball at Cal Poly from 1995 to 2000, said. “In school, you have certain people who get you. She got me.” Flemming said he would see Paul “lurking” in the Muir Hall dorm, where Flemming and Smart (but not Paul) lived during their freshman year. Describing him as “weird”

and “creepy,” he said he observed Paul inside Smart’s dorm room five or six times. “He was not welcome,” Flemming said. “Everyone knew Paul was creepy. She was uncomfortable.” Sanger and the Flores defense team contrasted Flemming’s testimony on Aug. 3 with statements he made to the FBI in 1999 indicating he wasn’t certain he saw Paul in Smart’s room. Flemming held firm in his response on Aug. 3. “Everything’s brought back memories,” Flemming said. “I do recognize Paul. Paul was in Kristin’s room.” When the hearing broke for lunch, New Times overheard members of the Flores defense team speaking in the court lobby areas. One person said that the DA’s Office “had nothing” without Smart’s body. The prosecution is expected to show that human blood and other evidence was found in the soil under Ruben’s deck, where Smart is believed to have been buried for decades. In addition to Flemming, several other witnesses were called to the stand in the three hearings that took place before press time. They included: Smart’s parents, Stan and Denise Smart; attendees of the house party that Smart and Paul attended on May 23 and 24; and current and former police detectives who investigated the case. —Peter Johnson

Paso Robles considers turning its airport into a spaceport Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin believes that the city airport’s future could be in the space industry.

“For 40 years now we’ve been saying we have an airport that’s a diamond in the rough and looking for a way to polish that diamond up,” he said during Paso City Council’s Aug. 3 meeting. “We actually have a chance to apply that polish.” The polish would be turning the Paso Robles Municipal Airport into a commercial spaceport, but not necessarily with vertical rocket launches that light up the sky. Cal Poly Chief Information Officer and Paso Airport Commissioner Bill Britton, who spoke with City Council about the spaceport idea on Aug. 3, said it could be a number of things—including a horizontal launch platform, an area for research and development, or a manufacturing facility. “These are all options that could utilize the runway we have here today without major modifications or disruptions to the airport that we have today,” Britton said during the meeting. Martin asked city Economic Development Manger Paul Sloan to work with Britton to look into what it would take to capitalize on the potential that might come with Vandenberg Air Force Base’s transition into a space hub. Recently, the Regional Economic Action Coalition (REACH), Cal Poly, Vandenberg, and state officials announced a commitment to developing the base into a thriving spaceport. Britton said that Martin was wondering what that effort would mean for North SLO County. The mayor’s goals, Britton said, are to optimize Paso’s potential to participate in regional space development plans, specifically in the growing commercial space transportation industry—delivering

“payloads” into low-Earth orbit. “What we’re talking about here today is about how the world of space delivery has changed,” Britton said. “This area of commercial space is new and emerging.” Working with Cal Poly, the airport could be used by spacecraft that look and act similarly to airplanes to drop small “payloads,” such as the cube satellites university students design every year, into low-Earth orbit. Britton said the university is always on the lookout for how they can get their micro-satellites into space. Currently, there are 12 licensed commercial spaceports in the United States, and on Aug. 3, Paso’s City Council unanimously voted to start the preapplication process with the Federal Aviation Administration to join their ranks. Britton said there are 26 companies around the world focusing on horizontal launch, and they’re talking to communities now. He added that Paso would be the first to turn in an application that included the concept of partnering with a university, which could help the airport receive grants. Paso City Councilmember Fred Strong said the city was a very logical place to put a spaceport, calling it just another tool in the toolbox to creating a successful airport. Martin said that the technology needed—such as fiber optic broadband— to accommodate space industry tenants would grow outward into the community. “We’re looking at the future of the future,” Martin said. “This is a chance to look at the future in a different way.” ∆ —Camillia Lanham

Masks on, pencils ready

Local K-12 students will start the school year with a mask mandate, amid increase in COVID-19 Delta variant BY PETER JOHNSON

P

atsy Mitchell, a third grade teacher at Calvin Oakley Elementary School in Santa Maria, got a pretty good test run at teaching during the pandemic when her school partially reopened for in-person instruction in the spring and summer. Even with a less-than-full classroom, the experience wasn’t easy. Indoor masking was mandatory, and that adjustment proved challenging. “Some students had a hard time breathing,” Mitchell remembered of those spring and summer classes. “A lot of it was anxiety ridden. Those little people— they don’t even know it’s anxiety.” Whenever her students were having a hard time breathing in their masks, Mitchell would gently invite them to step outside, take it off, and catch their breath. Mitchell herself needed that respite at times. “When they were ready, they were able to come back in,” she said. “Nobody made fun of anybody.” Despite the rough start, Mitchell said her students showed resilience and adaptability. Before too long, they had mostly adjusted to the new circumstances, she said. “At the end of the three weeks, children were giggling through their masks and making the best of it,” she said. Looking ahead to the full reopening of schools this month, K-12 teachers like Mitchell—as well as students, parents, and staff—are gearing up for an even more daunting challenge amid the ongoing pandemic. As communities try to achieve some normalcy by bringing back full-time, in-person school for the first time since March 2020, cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant are surging. And children under age 12 are not yet eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Meanwhile, Central Coast vaccination rates lag among adults and teenagers. In a July 29 update on COVID-19, San Luis Obispo County Public Health Officer Penny Borenstein said that 42 percent

of residents over age 12 are not yet fully vaccinated (about 10 percentage points higher than the statewide rate). In Santa Barbara County, about 46 percent of the county’s population, of any age, is not fully vaccinated. Despite those circumstances, health and education officials say that K-12 schools can still safely open this fall— but with precautions. One of those precautions is that teachers, students, and staff must continue to wear masks while indoors, regardless of their vaccination status. That is a health mandate being passed down to all school districts from the state of California. “It’s going to be a different kind of difficult,” said Eric Prater, superintendent of San Luis Coastal Unified School District, of the reopening process. “But anything’s going to be better than what I saw last year. We need to reopen our schools.” The mask mandate is generating mixed reactions from schools and parents. At San Luis Coastal, which serves SLO, Avila Beach, and Morro Bay, Prater said district leaders fully agree with the state’s rules and plan to take them extremely seriously. “This is not something we’re choosing to mess around with,” Prater said. At San Luis Coastal, any student who shows up to school without a mask will be provided one by the school. If the student refuses to wear it, he or she will be asked to go home, and the district will follow up privately with that family. All families have the option of enrolling their children in independent study instead of in-person school. Prater added that a district nurse is going to review all mask exemption requests based on medical conditions and will follow a “strict protocol” in determining what constitutes a legitimate excuse to grant an exemption. “There are some parents that are upset about this. And I just don’t agree with them,” Prater said. “As superintendent, my job is to keep students safe and staff safe, and my priority is to keep our schools open.”

MASK UP All students, teachers, and school staff will be required to wear masks indoors to start the 2021 school year, amid a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The mask mandate is getting a more lukewarm reception at some other local districts, like Atascadero Unified School District. At a July 22 school board meeting, Atascadero Unified Superintendent Tom Butler fielded several questions and complaints from board members and parents about the requirement. Parents voiced concerns ranging from the safety and sanitation of their kids wearing masks, to the lower fatality rate of COVID-19 in children, to their constitutional right to not wear a mask. Parent Christa Abma pointed out that children and adults have been allowed to go places indoors without masks for most of the summer. “They’re living their lives and they’re healthy,” Abma said. “Let our bodies work how God designed them to work. We’re strong. We’ll overcome this.” In response, Butler said that if the district decided to buck the state mask mandate, it risked losing state funding “to the tune of millions of dollars.” The district would also face legal liability, he said. “The level where districts have local control is in enforcing it,” Butler said. “We have some local control in how we engage with families and students who obviously don’t want masks.” Butler said those situations would be dealt with politely and respectfully, with medical exemptions considered and independent study programs offered. “This isn’t going to be something where we’re going to be a district that’s suspending students or taking some type

of punitive discipline action,” he said. Local public health officials stand behind the state mask order, calling it “key to safely reopening schools.” Tara Kennon, a public information officer with SLO County Public Health, said masking is a proven strategy to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, especially when social distancing is not possible, such as in a full classroom, and when many unvaccinated individuals are gathered. “A robust body of scientific evidence supports masking as a safe and effective strategy to reduce the spread of COVID-19, including among children over the age of 2,” Kennon said via email. “Virtually all grade school children are unable to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and universal masking provides a level playing field that protects all students, teachers, and school staff.” While COVID-19 is most deadly among older people, local pediatrician Rene Bravo said children and teenagers don’t go unaffected by the virus. As the Delta variant spreads throughout the unvaccinated population, the average age of hospitalized patients has dropped from 63 to 51. “Please get your teens vaccinated,” Bravo said during SLO County’s July 29 press briefing. “They do spread it. There are complications that occur in teenagers. I’ve seen that. You don’t know which child, who’s going to be that person. I don’t want to take that chance.” Δ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Lucia Mar Unified School District opens K-12 independent study school during pandemic BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

W

atching her oldest daughter toil to spell her name correctly in kindergarten, Melissa WalkerScott knew something wasn’t right. “You have no idea, she was a kindergartner, and she was spelling her whole name backwards. And she was still doing it in first grade,” Walker-Scott said, adding that teachers attributed it to being left-handed, which Walker-Scott knew couldn’t be right. “And they think you’re crazy.” Eventually, her daughter got tested for dyslexia. Even with the diagnosis, Walker-Scott said, the Santa Monica school system they were a part of didn’t help much. The family had to hire tutors to work with their daughter outside of school. When Walker-Scott’s daughter was a freshman in high school, they moved to SLO County where she started attending Arroyo Grande High School. Her daughter excelled in sign language, culinary science, and theater, because all are very tactile, but she was still struggling with math and English. After a couple of sit-down meetings, they found out that independent study was a possible pathway. “At first, she was a little embarrassed,” Walker-Scott said. “But it ended up being a life-saver for her.” Walker-Scott’s daughter became part of the Pacific Valley Academy’s first graduating class of students this past spring. Lucia Mar Unified School District has had independent study programs for kindergarten through 12th grade for years, but in fall of 2020 the district opened Pacific Valley Academy (PVA), a K-12 independent study school in Arroyo Grande. Walker-Scott’s daughter was part of PVA before it became PVA, she said, and the changes were noticeable within the first six months. “I can’t even tell you how her confidence was going up, she was achieving, she was getting A’s, she had a 4.0 by the end of her junior year,” Walker-Scott said. “She got into the college of her choice, and she gets to do things she never thought she would be able to do.” The reason she excelled in independent

study was because she could spend the time necessary with the subjects she needed to. School days weren’t made up of 50-minute class increments, where she would barely begin to wrap her mind around a class topic when the bell would ring. She could spend hours or days on a concept if she was struggling. Independent study allowed her to learn in the way that worked for her. But independent study isn’t for everyone. Students need to be selfmotivated, able to manage their time, and they have to work within a less structured environment. Walker-Scott’s youngest daughter attended PVA when schools were teaching virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it wasn’t a good fit, she said. Jennifer Bowen, principal of alternative schools and programs at Lucia Mar, said while it had been a plan for quite some time to start an accredited K-12 school for independent study, the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the school’s progress into overdrive. “When March [2020] hit and we knew it was going to push into the following school year, we knew that asynchronousstyle learning was going to be more desirable,” said Bowen, who oversees Lopez High School, PVA, and the district’s adult education. “At one point we were up to about 600 students, which was the third largest school in the district.” Synchronous and asynchronous learning are styles of education that the pandemic brought into everyday language. Synchronous learning happens in the classroom—and virtually, when students are logged on, learning, and interacting with classmates and their teacher. Independent study is largely asynchronous, with weekly and daily check-ins with teachers and fellow students, where synchronous learning can happen. During the 2020-21 school year, some families tried independent study as an alternative to virtual learning, not realizing how rigorous it was, Bowen said. The number of students tapered off to about 525 as parents and students discovered that it was a style of learning that didn’t work for them.

A very special thank you to all of our customers as we celebrate over

ONE-ON-ONE Students (photo taken pre-pandemic) enrolled at Pacific View Academy, an independent study school, get at least an hour of time with their teacher every week to make sure they’re staying on track.

“Students have to be pretty selfmotivated and disciplined,” Bowen said. “Some students need more support to be that independent.” Usually, Bowen said, the independent study program starts with about 50 or 60 students and grows throughout the school year to 100 or 120. Students have a tendency to come and go from the program, she said. If a student experiences a bad injury or family emergency, for instance, and can’t physically attend school on campus, they may do independent study for three months and then go back to campus. But July 2020 was a little “crazymaking,” said Joeli Martin, assistant principal of alternative education. PVA had 700 applications in three weeks. Although PVA expected an influx of high school students, there was a rush of applications for K-6 students as well. “So basically, we were just trying to— What does my friend always say?—build the plane while you’re flying it. It became a really attractive option for a lot of people in the district,” Martin said. “Fortunately, we were able to hire people and train them quickly. … But growing pains for sure.” Everything was taught virtually in 2020-21—which isn’t usually the case, even for independent study students, who have in-person check-ins with their teachers as well as in-person classroom labs. For those who had completed independent learning before, the transition to all virtual was fairly easy. But for new students, there was a little bit of a learning curve, Martin said.

“There’s this misconception that teachers won’t be paying attention and that they can slack off a little bit, and that’s not really the case,” Martin said. “Sometimes it involves having a really tough discussion about whether independent study is the right kind of learning environment for that student.” A recent bill, passed in July 2021, changes some of the requirements for independent study programs in the state of California and mandates all school districts to offer students a virtual independent study option for the 2021-22 school year. Most local school districts already offer independent study programs. Martin said the hours of synchronous learning now required differ by grade level: Kindergarten through third grade students have to attend one hour of synchronous learning every day with a one-hour one-on-one meeting with the teacher every week. Grades four through eight require daily interactions with the whole class, one hour of synchronous learning every week, and one hour of oneon-one time with the teacher. And ninth through 12th grades require synchronous opportunities for learning as well as weekly check-ins. “If this pandemic taught us anything, it’s that we can be flexible and we can be adaptable,” Martin said. “In education overall, it’s been wonderful, and it’s just opened our eyes to different ways of doing things.” Δ Reach Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

Preschool for all

Local school districts are ahead of the curve in offering pre- and transitional kindergarten, and state legislation will soon expand these efforts

BY MALEA MARTIN

U

niversal public preschool is a concept long-discussed, and recently politicians started making serious policy proposals in pursuit of preschool for all. President Joe Biden’s American Family Plan released in late April proposes universal, high quality preschool for all 3- and 4-year-olds. In early July, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed legislation to make transitional kindergarten available to every 4-year-old in the state, and he hopes to expand preschool for even younger kids. On the Central Coast, public preschool for some students has already been an option for a while. And while it’s not universal yet, local school officials say Newsom’s push for expanded transitional and pre-kindergarten could change the early learning landscape in the very near future. In the meantime, local public school districts are doing what they can to provide early learning opportunities to as many kids as possible—and they’re approaching it through an equity lens. This means offering preschool to kids whose families couldn’t afford it otherwise.

Santa Maria-Bonita School District (SMBSD) has had preschools in the district since 1997. The first one was implemented at Fairlawn Elementary, and today, the district has a preschool at all but five of its 17 elementary school sites. “It’s our goal to have a pre-kindergarten program at each of our elementary school sites,” district Director of Teaching and Learning Jennifer Loftus said. “For the last school year we added Liberty and Libbon Elementary, and then going into this next school year we’re adding Arellanes Elementary School.” Raquel Valdez, director of preschools at SMBSD, said funding for the district’s preschools historically has been through the California State Preschool Program (CSPP) and the district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) funds. And in late June, the district was awarded a First 5 grant that will allow it to add the new preschool at Arellanes Elementary School. The grant gives the district $150,000 annually for the next four years. “The CSPP funding that we receive from the state does have requirements with it,” Loftus said. “Students are eligible for pre-kindergarten if they

EARLY LEARNING Local school district leaders say preschool is an equity issue, and new legislation signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom will expand pre-Kindergarten opportunities.

Mayfield said. “But it’s very challenging for families these days to be able to afford preschool programs, and if you have multiple children, it’s really difficult.” While California districts are not required to offer the preschool programs, they are required to offer transitional kindergarten (TK) to some students. Preschool is an umbrella term under which pre-K and TK fall, and the difference between the two isn’t that substantial in terms of curriculum. But, Mayfield said, it more comes down to age differences, when a child is born, and what schools are required to provide.

meet certain eligibility criteria, and the primary factor is income.” San Luis Coastal Unified School District (SLCUSD) has run a preschool program called Success for All since 2013, paid for out of the school’s general fund. Like SMBSD’s program, it aims to reach “a specific targeted audience of students who otherwise wouldn’t have an opportunity to attend preschool,” SLCUSD Director of Learning and Achievement Rick Mayfield said. Success for All is hosted at Baywood, Hawthorne, and Pacheco elementary schools. “There are a lot of preschool programs out there and available in the community,”

AN ANSWER TO ANXIETY? Teachers, parents and students are wondering what they can do to adjust to the “New Normal.”

a magic bullet, but it is a crucial tool that can work hand-in-hand with other treatments.”

Nicole Boughton, local mom, teacher, FEMA Crisis Counselor, and neurofeedback clinician at the Lapidus Clinic has some helpful information.

Neurofeedback is the technology that allows the brain to see itself as if it were looking in a mirror. It reflects back to the body and to the brain what it’s doing by using a device called an electroencephalograph. The technology has been around for more than four decades but we are seeing huge developments in recent years due to increased usage of neurological medical devices.

“Neurofeedback has been so helpful to so many students because it addresses the physical symptoms of ADHD, depression, overwhelming anxiety, sleep issues, and PTSD,” Nicole explains. What does that mean for teachers and students, and parents? It’s one more resource in our community to help our students and our families overcome challenges that Covid has left us with. Nicole adds, “This could be the game changer for so many and they can try it without a big commitment. I have students who wish that more of their peers knew about this, because they’ve struggled with school all their life, and now they feel better than ever. We’re also seeing support from insurance reimbursements too.” Nicole can’t make guarantees but she tells a compelling story, “During the COVID crisis, there was one child I worked with who had suffered trauma from a broken family and began exhibiting behavior and academic problems in class.” Nicole continues, “After going to several types of therapies, all which were helpful to an extent, Neurogenesis Neurofeedback helped him to settle down his nervous system in a way that other therapies couldn’t. All of his therapists, teachers, and friends reported seeing a tremendous change in his behavior and academic performance. I will never say that neurofeedback is

As a single mother and a late entry college student (I started Cal Poly when I was 40 years old), I discovered neurofeedback therapy was going to save my investment in tuition and keep me on a course to reach my goals.

K-12? BACK TO SCHOOL CHECK-LIST:

Does it hurt? No, the electrodes are read-only electrodes (very much like an EKG that reads the heart’s activity, it doesn’t stimulate the heart) the EEG electrodes placed on the scalp only read the brain wave activity. There is no stimulation to the brain. Who uses Neurofeedback? Schools, mental health clinics, elite sports performance trainers, psychologists, and doctors. It can be used alone or with medication. Those suffering with headaches may also see a reduction in the severity or frequency of their symptoms. •

Current law requires school districts across California to offer TK to kids who turn 5 between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2, because Sept. 2 is the cutoff for kindergarten enrollment, Mayfield said. Newsom expanded that criteria when he signed Assembly Bill 130 into law on July 9, which will provide “free, high-quality, inclusive pre-kindergarten for all 4-yearolds, beginning incrementally in 2022-23 and with full implementation anticipated by 2025-26,” according to Newsom’s office. “Right now, it’s only limited to those students who [turn 5] in the fall,” Mayfield said of existing law. “Let’s say you turn 5 in January. You would be in preschool, as opposed to kindergarten. But what the state is saying is any 4-year old needs to be in a TK program. It’ll mean there’s TK programs at every school, and probably equal to the number of kindergarten classes that are there.” Loftus at Santa Maria-Bonita said she and her fellow school district leaders are “kind of in a holding pattern” as they await details on what the roll-out of expanded TK will look like. “If we are offering transitional kindergarten to all of our students, [we’re] thinking of blending pre-kindergarten with transitional kindergarten, because our pre-kindergarten [currently] serves primarily all 4-year-olds, and our transitional kindergarten serves those students who are not 5 in time to start kindergarten,” Loftus said. This leads to questions around what early learning would look like if TK expands to cover all 4-year olds. “Are we then serving 3-year olds? Is that happening in the school system or is that happening more in a center-based child care, day care center type setting?” Loftus asked. What district officials do know is that preschool—whether required by the state or not—is about increasing accessibility and equity. That’s why both SLCUSD and SMBSD have made efforts to offer preschool to some children, even before being required to by the state. “Traditionally, students who are underserved are coming from households that have lower income, their parents might be both working full time, it might be a single parent household, and just all of the different challenges that go along with being in that low-income threshold,” Loftus said. “Before there’s an achievement gap, there’s a readiness gap. Many students of poverty are not ready to learn when they enter kindergarten.” Not only does preschool get kids ready for school, but it also builds a relationship between the district and families. “In the program, we focus a lot on the social-emotional, and having those partnerships with families to support them and to get them ready for kindergarten,” SMBSD Preschool Director Valdez said. Mayfield said that kindergarten standards are quite rigorous, so having kids in pre-K or TK helps set them up for success. “By the end of kindergarten, students need to be reading at a fairly high level; they need to have math skills,” he said. “So getting them at 4 years old gives us the opportunity to help form their learning and prepare them for successful kindergarten experiences, and also to identify needs that students have and be able to plug them into programs, interventions that will serve their needs.” ∆ Reach Staff Writer Malea Martin at mmartin@newtimesslo.com.

EASY ACCESS The Camino Scholars program makes homework help accessible with program sites located on People’s Self-Help Housing properties across the Central Coast.

BY MALEA MARTIN

Successful students

T

he Camino Scholars program, quite literally, meets kids where they’re at. People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH), the biggest affordable housing organization on the Central Coast, offers a variety of free, site-based services to its residents. One of those services is Camino Scholars, an after-school education program. “We have 11 learning centers throughout the Central Coast, all the way from Carpinteria to Paso Robles,” PSHH Director of Education Joanna Dominguez said. “We offer after-school programming and then we also offer college readiness programming for our students once they get into high school.” These programs can look like tutoring, group-based homework help, and other educational support to boost students’ school success. When the pandemic hit last year, Dominguez said the demand for the Camino Scholars program shot up. “We were getting referrals left and right,” she said. “So just during that first month, we increased our enrollment by 100 students.” PSHH recently released end-of-year data that shows vast improvements over the past school year, even with kids learning mostly at a distance. According to the data, at the start of last school year, only 35 percent of students enrolled in the program were reading at grade level, with 32 percent being two or more grade levels behind. At the end of the year, 61 percent of students were reading at grade level or higher, and just 13 percent still needed greater assistance. Dominguez said the program uses a web-based math and literacy platform called iReady to assess its students. “Why we utilize that platform is because it’s very predictive of their school success,” she said. “It’s totally in line with the SBAC [Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium] testing that the school districts use. We’re able to see where our students will progress academically with the school district. … Even during COVID times, we kept working with them for the whole entire time.” And while at school, students typically get a new teacher every year, the Camino Scholar program has kids working with the same instructors as they get older. “The reason why we were able to fill that gap [during the pandemic] is because we have such a strong relationship established with our parents and our students,” Dominguez said. “They’re coming to us year after year after year, and it’s the same teachers in the after-school programs onsite. … Normally they just walk over from their apartment to our classroom right in

the middle of the [housing] complex.” Amid the pandemic, of course, things looked a little different: Camino Scholars went virtual during the lockdown. But as things open up, the program is now back in person. Dominguez added that while PSHH residents get priority in the program, other kids can join, too, if there’s additional space. “We do very frequently enroll additional students in the community,” she said. “A lot of times that looks like other family members of our students who are enrolled with us. Other times it’s the local school that’s in our area, they’ll refer students that don’t live onsite, because they know of us through other students that they have that do live on-site.” The service is completely free to anyone who enrolls. Right now, Camino Scholars has about 350 students enrolled, and the program typically serves 600 students over the course of a school year. “As a result of the pandemic we’ve actually expanded our partnerships,” Dominguez said. “For example, Templeton Unified [School District] is the first to ask us to open up a Camino Scholars program on campus. So last semester, we did the first ever Camino Scholars program on campus at Templeton Middle School, and this upcoming school year we’re planning to open up an additional two sites at Templeton Elementary School and Vineyard Elementary School.” To find out more about Camino Scholars, visit pshhc.org/education.

• The Central Coast Coalition of Chambers released business community survey results that show an increase in optimism in the local economy. “The most recent survey ran from June 21 to July 7, opening nearly one week after the state’s Beyond the Blueprint recovery plan went into effect on June 15,” according to the San Luis Obispo Chamber. The results show that 45 percent of respondents were “optimistic about the future and think the economy will rebound within two to three months. This is a stark contrast when compared to general sentiment from May 2020 with only 17 percent of respondents feeling optimistic.” Jim Dantona, chair of the Central Coast Coalition of Chambers, said in a statement that the coalition “will continue to advocate for business-friendly policies that will aid in their recovery.” ∆ Staff Writer Malea Martin wrote this week’s Strokes.

Conserve for the future To address the climate crisis, we must protect our public lands and rivers

O

ur lives have been profoundly changed by the pandemic. We have mourned the loss of loved ones, been separated from family members and friends, and experienced economic upheaval. Through this hardship, places like the Los Padres National Forest have provided many of us with much-needed solace and comfort in nature. We are more aware than ever that spending time outdoors is essential for our well-being. Scientists are also telling us that protecting large swaths of public lands and rivers is one of the most effective ways to address the climate crisis. And we have just a few years left to take comprehensive action in order to meet the 2030 deadline. That’s why it’s imperative we act now to protect our public lands and rivers. U.S. Sen. Alex Padilla (D-California)— in his first term in Congress—is leading the way on this issue by introducing the PUBLIC Lands Act. Included in this bill is the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act, championed by U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) in the House, to permanently safeguard public lands within the Los Padres National Forest and Carrizo Plain National Monument. This includes preserving more than

HODIN

245,000 acres of wilderness, creating two scenic areas encompassing 34,500 acres, and protecting about 159 miles of wild and scenic rivers. It also designates the Condor National Recreation Trail, a 400-mile-long trail that would connect the northern and southern portions of the Los Padres by a single hiking route. The bill includes measures that would preserve more than a million acres of public lands and more than 500 miles of rivers throughout California. This effort already passed the House, and now we have a champion in the Senate. Protecting public lands and rivers on the Central Coast is critical to our state and our nation’s efforts to address the climate crisis. Both President Biden and Gov. Newsom have committed to protect 30 percent of our public lands and waters by 2030. Why is this so important in the fight against climate change? Protected public lands capture and store carbon out of the atmosphere. These places also help us adapt to and mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis that are already taking place. Investments in public lands are an essential and urgent piece of the puzzle to prepare for climate impacts like drought and wildfires, while preventing the worst of climate catastrophe. The PUBLIC Lands Act is a down payment toward our 2030 conservation goal. It’s also an important way we can prevent more carbon emissions. Twenty-five percent of all carbon emissions nationwide are due to fossil fuel extraction on public lands. The Central Coast has been under threat

for years from oil and gas drilling. Sen. Padilla and Rep. Carbajal recognized this threat and included safeguards for more than 300,000 acres of public lands in the Los Padres and Carrizo Plain. These protections will help prevent future development and more damage from the resulting carbon emissions. Additionally, the bill protects about 159 miles of rivers and creeks in the national forest. These are some of the last free-flowing and undammed rivers in Southern California. Safeguarding these waters protects habitat for fish and animals that are struggling to adapt to climate change. Another benefit of the bill is that it will improve accessibility to the Los Padres for locals and visitors. By designating the Condor Trail as a National Scenic Trail, more resources will be allocated to preserving and completing this trail and the many others used to access it. I am grateful for Sen. Padilla’s leadership on this important issue— especially so early in his first term. It’s clear that he’s prioritizing the climate crisis and taking a holistic approach to protecting our future. He understands how important the Central Coast’s public lands and rivers are and is taking steps to ensure that they are conserved for generations to come. That will be a legacy to be proud of. ∆ Mary Creasman is the chief executive officer of the California League of Conservation Voters. Send a response for publication to letters@newtimesslo.com.

Letters A bike path could be coming to your neighborhood The city of San Luis Obispo would love for you to think the “Anholm Greenway” (aka “Anholm Bikeway,” aka “North Broad Bike Boulevard”) will be the most marvelous thing they’ve ever done. Don’t swallow spin. The real story is ugly and dirty. This is the most neighborhoodunfriendly city project in memory. It is racist, ableist, ageist, elitist, and plain mean, nasty, and rotten to neighborhood residents, and the features that make it such are completely unnecessary. It was the city’s deliberate choice to say to residents: “You don’t count.” The design and advancement of this atrocity rest on conflicts of interest so incestuous no well-governed city would tolerate them. Bicyclists are alleged to be winners, but what they get is a dangerous, unsafe mishmash of textbook concepts clumsily applied where they don’t belong. Any number of kinder-to-residents alternatives would better serve bicyclists, but an arrogant know-it-all city rejected them all. The city says this is but the first of many neighborhoods it intends to treat so shabbily. So wake up, SLO neighborhoods—yours could be next. Richard Schmidt San Luis Obispo


Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY QUINN BRADY

Mental care A s COVID-19 has swept the world, the ripple effects continue to grow and expand and become the issues we cannot ignore. From increased consumption of single-use plastics to economic impacts on small business owners, from tumultuous partisan divisions to the extraordinary toll taken on working mothers, the impacts have been tremendous and aren’t going away soon. The devastation caused by the virus itself led to physical loss and separation that continues to rage in communities across the world, while simultaneously leading to a more nuanced devastation that has crept into every other area of our lives. After a year and a half of grief and trauma, uncertainty and stress, economic upheaval and social isolation, and blinding racial and economic disparities, a whole new crisis is brewing. Experts have warned about a different problem heightened by the coronavirus: a mental health crisis like we haven’t seen before. Studies have shown that the pandemic has taken a toll on young people, as 62.9 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds report symptoms of anxiety or depression. But they aren’t alone. Other studies attest that as many as one-fifth of all older adults say they felt their mental health had worsened throughout the COVID-19 crisis. A record number of minimum wage workers, from restaurants to retail, have left their jobs this year, citing mental health as a factor. Mental Health America recently published that of the approximately 46 million individuals who identify as Black or African American in the U.S., more than 16 percent reported having a mental illness within the past year. That’s more than 7 million people who need help in a time when mental health resources are scarce, local governments are overwhelmed, and health care providers have been stretched to their edge. Millions of people, just like you and me, who are doing their best to stay afloat and meet the moment, are being taken by the waves of the storm. The last year has taken its toll on all of us, affecting everyone to varying degrees. Some have been able to ride through the storm in a rubber lifeboat, others in canoes of wood taking on water and cracking under the pressure, while some just hang on desperately to whatever floats. Nearby, neighbors have navigated the waves in sailboats with stabilizers, and ships of steel feeling the sting as a cruise ship passes by with a party on the deck. And a select few rocketed away to space. It’s a story popping up all over the media right now in different ways, from the pressures on politicians, leaders, and athletes to the weight the nation has put on the shoulders of working mothers, to the rise in homelessness fueled by compounding factors of housing costs and a lack of mental health resources. If you haven’t struggled through this time personally, my guess is you know someone who has, someone you care about that helps put flesh and bones and a face on the story of the decline of mental health in America. But that face isn’t always obvious. Anxiety, depression,

and waning mental health looks a lot like your smiling neighbor, like your favorite teacher, and the barista serving your morning coffee. While this very systematic and complex problem requires a deeply systemic solution, we are seeing a unique and beautiful moment where people are speaking up about what they face. From social media to Olympic podiums, women in particular are opening up about prioritizing their own mental health over society’s expectations and definition of success. In this time of duress and isolation, many reflected on their lives and focused on what was important to them, what they wanted to create and cultivate, and what they were ready to leave behind. The discomfort of the last year allowed us to see ourselves as we are, the beautiful and the messy and all the in between, and gave us permission to shed the expectations of society and meet the moment by taking care of ourselves how we know best. It might be getting more sleep or movement, saying “no” instead of “yes,” leaving a job or relationship that no longer serves you, nurturing an interest that wants to grow, or just drinking the coffee a little slower. I know I am not alone when I admit that taking care of myself and honoring my boundaries as a mechanism of care has been one of the hardest lessons of all. We need each other, but we need ourselves too. We can’t solve the crisis with self-care alone, but we can start by acknowledging and tending to our own pains and extending empathy and respect for others to live their own truths. And we can start by acknowledging that we exist in a system built on patriarchal demands of perfectionism that try to tear us apart even as we try to be together. There is much work to be done to deconstruct the ideas and structures that drive people into crisis, and construct safe spaces for everyone. And we will not be whole until we get there. Changing this story of care, both within ourselves and out into the world, will lead to systemic change that has the power to hold, to heal, and to make us stronger than before. ∆

The Shredder

’Rona fatigue

R

aise your hand if you’re super sick and tired of the novel coronavirus affectionately known as COVID-19. Wow, I haven’t seen this many hands in the air since Rock Master Scott and the Dynamic Three dropped “The Roof Is On Fire” in 1984. “Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care. We don’t need no water let the mother#@%$er burn! Burn, mother#@%$er, burn.” Except we do need water and we want to put this mother#@%$er known as COVID-19 to death. The question is how far are we willing to go? How much more inconvenience are we willing to endure to save lives? As of late, news stories about the vaccinated “losing patience” with the unvaccinated have exploded. How do we get those suffering so-called “vaccine hesitancy” to take the plunge? Should we reward the irresponsible? Should we bribe the ignorant? That seems to be what’s happening in a new press release from the city of San Luis Obispo that announced it would offer $25 gift cards for each dose of the vaccine received “from a county of San Luis Obispo Public Health Clinic or mobile vaccination clinic.” Hey, where’s my 50 bucks? I got jabbed twice, like, three and four months ago! Apparently, if you’ve been shirking your patriotic duty to help your community reach herd immunity or if you’ve been too dumb up till now to believe that

vaccines are safe and effective, we’ll give you money. Sheesh! “While I hope the gift cards are a helpful motivator,” SLO County Public Health Director Dr. Penny Borenstein said in the press release, “the true value is being protected from the cost and suffering of COVID-19.” Duh. Apparently Penny and the Public Health Department read this column because two weeks ago (“Stingy, snotty, stupid,” July 22) I asked—and I quote myself—“Wouldn’t it be great to have some data about current COVID-19 cases in SLO County, such as the percent of new cases among those vaccinated and unvaccinated, including hospitalizations?” Well, that very same bribery press release laid down the stats: “Data shows that since Jan. 1, 2021, residents who are not fully vaccinated have represented 98.5 percent of COVID-19 cases, 97.5 percent of hospitalizations, and 99.2 percent of deaths in SLO County.” I know these numbers can be hard to comprehend when your online anti-vaxx “research” tells you over and over that vaccinations a) cause autism (they don’t), b) haven’t been fully researched (they have), c) are just a profit scheme for Big Pharma (how’s that free COVID vaxx doing?), or d) vaccine injury is common (nope, exceedingly rare). For the record,

GRAND OPENING OF

a new study showed that most antivaccine conspiracies online originate from the same 12 people and their organizations, which have been dubbed the “disinformation dozen.” I mean, sure, you can believe these bad actors using your paranoia and ignorance to line their pockets, or you can believe the American Medical Association, which recently reported that 96 percent of all practicing physicians in the U.S. are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. And those remaining 4 percent? Almost half said they plan to get their vaccination. That means about 98 percent of all physicians believe in the power of vaccines. One more math problem: Do you want to trust vaccine advice from 12 unqualified people or should you believe 980,000 or so doctors who trained for 11 to 16 years? Hmm, puzzler, amirite? Now go collect your $50 in gift cards, slackers. Protecting yourself and your community is worth the potential sore arm and next-day mild COVID-19 symptoms, which by all accounts are much less distressing than being intubated on a ventilator. And speaking of math and other academic subjects, K-12 schools will reopen this fall, but students, teachers, and staff—regardless of vaccination status—will all be required to mask up indoors, which makes perfect sense as the Delta variant continues to thwart our attempts to squash the pandemic, and children under 12 remain ineligible for vaccination.

Most county school districts are happy to comply with this state of California mandate, but in a weird and ironic twist (not), some North County school districts and parents are none too happy with the mask requirement. Surprise, surprise! “They’re living their lives and they’re healthy,” parent Christa Abma said of her unmasked children at a July 22 Atascadero Unified School District board meeting. “Let our bodies work how God designed them to work. We’re strong. We’ll overcome this.” I guess God designed 607,881-andcounting Americans’ bodies to die after contracting COVID-19. Let’s pray Ms. Abma’s children have the “good” design, eh? Look, if parents don’t want to send their kids to school if they’ll be required to wear masks, by all means, keep your kids at home and let them do independent study, which is an option. Here’s the thing: These same parents who are complaining about a mask mandate are most likely the same parents who complained that schools were shut down in the first place. Well, now they’re opening, but your kid has to wear a mask for the safety of others. Get over it. Around the world, people desperately want to receive the vaccine, but here in the U.S., where everyone has free and easy access, holdouts remain. Sigh. ∆ The Shredder avoids the unvaccinated and washes its gears regularly. Sent comments and suggestions to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

Rising star Jade Jackson plays the Fremont Theater’s grand reopening

T

his Saturday, after being shuttered for nearly a year and a half, the Fremont Theater will reopen with Santa Margarita native Jade Jackson at the top of the bill. Jackson, too, has been cut off from what she loves most: performing. She and her band had just returned from an early 2020 U.S. tour with Lucero when the COVID-19 pandemic put the brakes on her future touring plans that March. She was looking forward to playing the Stagecoach Festival as well as some dates with Amanda Shires. “It finally felt like we were at the spot where the ball was rolling, and then the pandemic hit,” she said during a recent phone interview. In March 2020, Jackson was just a few years into her big career break. In 2017, she’d been signed to ANTI-Records. Rolling Stone magazine named her on its “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” list. She was heading toward the next level on her pathway to stardom. Instead she found herself back at her parents’ Santa Margarita restaurant, The Range. “Everyone, including my parents, were like, ‘What should we do?’” Jackson recalled. “My parents let everyone go except family at the restaurant—it seemed like the safest thing to do—and I buried myself in restaurant work, which is fine. I know how to do it. I was so busy I didn’t have time to complain, and my family had their health and the business was surviving.” Like a lot of us, the pandemic stressed her out, but that stress led to her most recent single, “6FT. Changes.” “I’m not really a ‘I’m going to sit down and write a song’ kind of person,” she said. “I’m a ‘I have a pit in my stomach and I have to get this out’ writer, which was what happened with this song. I was on my way to sleep and it fell into my consciousness, so I went to the living room and scribbled it down.” On it she sings, “Last night I saw it, the crowd and the sweat/ The lights in my eyes and the warmth in my chest/ The theater walls held murals of gods/ And their gold paint was peeling from years of applause/ Oh I want to go back to the way it was/ Before we had distance between us/ Six feet changes the way it was/ Handshakes and hugs in a crowded space/ Dancing with strangers and holding up beers/ Tapping on shoulders and whispering in ears.” She recorded the song and made a music video for it in the empty Fremont Theater, which is where she’ll be this Saturday, Aug. 7 (8 p.m.; all ages; $31.03 at fremontslo.com), with her excellent band: Devin Hollister (bass), Julian Ness (lead guitar), and Tyler

Shuttered Venue Operators Grants to benefit local music and entertainment businesses

Congressman Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) recently announced that 41 venues in California’s 24th District will receive funds from the Shuttered Venue Operators Grants (SVOG) program, divided between a total of more than $27.3 million. The program was created to support hard-hit businesses in the music and entertainment sector that were forced to close due to pandemic restrictions during the COVID-19 crisis. Several Central Coast businesses made it onto the approved list of recipients, including the Great American Melodrama in Oceano, the Fremont Theatre in San Luis Obispo, Cinema Square in Atascadero, the Estrella Warbirds Museum in Paso Robles, the Foundation at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, the Lompoc Valley Festival Association, and other regional organizations. “These local businesses not only create good jobs and contribute to our local economy but also contribute to the spirit and local culture of our community,” Carbajal said in a statement.

Local filmmakers examine the 1977 Honda Canyon Fire in new, awardwinning documentary, FireStorm ’77

W

hile taking a film course at Allan Hancock College back in 2016, Lompoc local Dennis R. Ford would occasionally stay after class to chat with his professor, Christopher Hite. It was often small talk about movies they mutually enjoyed, but one conversation took an interesting turn that would alter both men’s lives for the next half a decade. In the late ’70s, Ford was a 20-year-old airman stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base. On Dec. 20, 1977, more than a thousand firefighters and augmentee firefighters— including Ford, who had no prior firefighting experience—were tasked with fighting a massive wind-driven wildfire, which resulted in four fatalities, 65 injuries, and nearly 10,000 acres burned. After hearing Ford’s recollection of the traumatic event, known today as the 1977 Honda Canyon Fire, Hite recognized it above all as a story that needed to be shared. “He [Ford] spent a minute describing what this experience in his life was. It was just so compelling what he told me,” Hite said. “And it was very cinematic.” Hite’s first recommendation to Ford was to at the very least get his experience down on paper. Ford agreed and started writing about his perspective of the tragic fire in the form of a screenplay, during one of Hite’s screenwriting courses. After several subsequent discussions on the topic, the pair arrived at, “Why don’t we just make our own documentary?” Hite said. “And that’s where Joe came into the picture,” added Hite, commenting on local author Joseph N. Valencia joining the project as a producer and technical consultant. Valencia was part of the Santa Barbara County Strike Team that arrived to fight the Honda Canyon Fire, taking part in two fire overruns and two rescues during the tragedy. He was only 19 at the time. In 2004, Valencia wrote a book, Beyond Tranquillon Ridge, to recount not only his firefighting efforts but those of more than 100 interviewees. After Ford and Hite reached out to Valencia

about a potential film adaptation of his book, “The next thing you know, all three of us were at a Starbucks over coffee, deciding on how to produce a documentary,” Hite said, which was the start of a four-year process in getting FireStorm ’77 made. “The film does something FIRE WALK WITH ME Allan Hancock College film professor Christopher Hite (pictured) not only sat in the director’s that the book can’t do, which chair during the making of FireStorm ’77, but served as is when you see the faces of cinematographer and co-editor of the documentary as well. the people we’re interviewing. You see their emotion and you see how the effects of that fire 40, almost 45 years ago now still affects them,” Valencia said. While bringing back several sources from Valencia’s book for on-camera interviews for the documentary, the filmmakers also used television footage and radio transmissions archived from the event. “The original recordings from dispatch to people in the field were preserved, luckily. We use the recordings throughout the film, and it adds an eerie quality to it because there’s moments when you can tell there’s urgency to find someone who’s not responding on the other end of the radio,” said Hite, who took on the roles of director, cinematographer, and co-editor of FireStorm ’77. “Those are the moments we really tried to tap into. That’s where cinema can really go places.” Out of the various radio transmissions REVISITING THE FLAMES FireStorm ’77 collected, there’s one recording from Fire Chief producer and technical consultant Joseph Billy Bell—who was tragically entrapped and N.

Glen This odd, challenging film will have those willing to commit to it thinking about it for days after the theater goes dark. It mixes two folk story motifs—the beheading game and the exchange of winnings—the latter occurring after Gawain begins his quest to find the Green Chapel and complete the challenge. His journey is arduous, and along the way Gawain proves to be less than brave and noble. He eventually comes upon a castle, whose lord (Joel Edgerton) invites him in to rest before completing his journey, telling him he’ll give him whatever he kills while hunting in exchange for whatever Gawain might receive while he rests in the castle. As the lord is out hunting, his beautiful wife (Alicia Vikander) attempts to seduce Gawain. At its heart this is a story about knightly honor. Gawain wants desperately to not only be a knight but to be honorable, however he demonstrates a lack of character at every turn. Lowery’s version of the epic poem pays homage to the source material but also deconstructs it, suggesting that the stories we tell ourselves about human bravery and honor are lies. It’s a stunningly gorgeous film with cinematography by Andrew Droz Palermo, but it’s also a surreal and difficult film to process. I have a feeling it won’t appeal to some viewers. Anna I wasn’t familiar with the poem but got a brief synopsis before heading to the theater. I walked out of the theater liking

Full price the film, and now that I’ve had a few days to digest it, I like it even more. It’s doing well with critics but less so with general audiences, which is a shame—there’s a lot of meat on these bones, and the story is told in an engaging way. Lowery weaves an evocative tale that—combined with Palermo’s beautiful cinematography— creates a moody and grueling story. Gawain perhaps wants to be good but struggles with vices and his conviction. When the year finally passes and King Arthur says he must start his quest, he visibly squirms at the idea of riding into what seems will be his certain death. “Was it not a game?” he asks the King, who breaks the news that game or no, his honor requires he fulfill his quest. I’m a fan of this director—he’s great at creating mood as well as small but potent moments with his characters. Like you said, this may not hit with wider audiences, but if you enjoy a challenging film, this is a great watch. Glen Lowery’s version of the story has a lot of layers to decode. Early on, we see Gawain sleeping with Essel (Vikander in a duel role), who wants Gawain to make an honest woman of her, but it’s clear Gawain thinks she’s not good enough for him. Yet Gawain falls deeply in lust with the lady of the castle (also Vikander). His perception is distorted by his expectations of himself. When the lord of the castle

asks him why he’s on the quest, Gawain says “honor,” as if merely completing the quest will somehow bestow upon him noble characteristics he currently doesn’t possess. After he’s waylaid on his quest by a ne’er-do-well played by Irish actor Barry Keoghan, who’s terrific as always, Gawain is lost and hungry and picks and eats wild mushrooms, and then things turn psilocybin-style trippy. Lowery goes in so many wild and inventive directions, expanding on the poem in surprising ways and showing us a new way to interpret and understand the old Arthurian tale. This film calls for repeated viewings! Anna Agreed. I’ll definitely be giving this film another viewing or two at home. Gawain is both relatable and incredibly frustrating; he’s not a bad guy, but is he really good? Perhaps, but he definitely has a lot of growing up to do and that’s something this quest forces him face. Once he’s tripping on ’shrooms, Lowery starts to bend time on us, and Gawain’s future splits into different versions of what could be, not just what will be. It’s a great device to give us more story, and Lowery was smart to bend the original tale into something that is full of complexity. Patel holds his own here, and the cast behind him is wonderful as well. A lot of people aren’t necessarily interested in a film that challenges them, and that’s OK. But if you like provocative, weedy, difficult films, I’m guessing you’re going to really enjoy this. The cinematography alone warrants bigscreen viewing.

riter-director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story, The Old Man & the Gun) directs this film based on the Arthurian 14th century Middle English chivalric romantic poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, about a tree-like knight who arrives at King Arthur’s court on Christmas eve with a challenge for one of Arthur’s knights to strike a blow against him in exchange for allowing him to return the blow in a year and a day. King Arthur’s (Sean Harris) nephew, the immature and unproven Gawain (Dev Patel), brashly agrees to the challenge and swiftly removes the Green Knight’s (Ralph Ineson) head, but instead of perishing, the Green Knight picks up his head and rides off after arranging next year’s meeting with Gawain at the Green Chapel.

ased on a young adult book series by Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society follows Reynie Muldoon (Mystic Inscho), a bright but lonely orphan whose out-of-the-box logic gets him a spot at a prestigious private school—or so he thinks. When he finally meets the mysterious Mr. Benedict (Tony Hale), we learn that Reynie along with fellow recruits Sticky (Seth B. Carr), Kate (Emmy DeOliveira), and Constance (Marta Kessler) are actually on a mission to infiltrate The Institute and find out what its sinister director Mr. Curtain (also played by

28 • New Times • August 5 - August 12, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

JOLT Hale) is doing on his heavily guarded island. This cast is so much fun. Hale is wonderful as the twins who parted young; Kristen Shaall plays No. 2, his loyal, odd, and off-the-wall associate; and Ryan Hurst plays Milligan, an amnesic strongarm who had his memory wiped at The Institute. The kids are also fantastic. Constance Contraire is a very tough, tiny girl with an unyielding stubborn streak and seemingly some mental powers as well. While it moves a little slow in bits, this beautifully shot series swings from whimsical to dark over and over again. The costuming is wonderful, the casting is a clear win, and the visuals are fantastic. I’m hoping this one gets a season 2; it’s a great watch for the family.

anya Wexler (Buffaloed, Hysteria) directs this action comedy about Lindy (Kate Beckinsale), a former bouncer prone to murderous rage who controls her homicidal tendencies with an electrode-lined vest that shocks her back to normal. Under the care of therapist Dr. Munchin (Stanley Tucci), Lindy is learning to navigate the world without killing anyone … until someone murders Justin (Jai Courtney), a man she’s started dating. Detectives Nevin (Laverne Cox) and Vicars (Bobby Cannavale) are assigned to

the case, but when they aren’t moving fast enough for Lindy, she takes matters into her own hands and kills her way up the food chain to discover who ordered Justin’s murder. I certainly wouldn’t describe this film as great, but it offers some entertaining action, and Beckinsale is funny, engaging, and manages to make a credible action star despite her supermodel thinness. Like Gunpowder Milkshake, which I reviewed last week, this is another gender-flipping action film, and it’s always fun to watch a woman fight the patriarchy. (91 min.) Δ —Glen

Adventures in dining Table & Vine Supper Club showcases the bounty of SLO County with hand-picked dining experiences

T

he Central Coast culinary scene is heating up this summer with the launch of Table & Vine Supper Club, the brainchild of Paso Robles-based event producer Morgen Hoffman. Table & Vine aims to create “one-of-akind dining experiences” via collaboration between local chefs, vintners, and venues. Given her extensive background in corporate entertainment, Hoffman is uniquely qualified for the supper-club task. She also believes there’s no better setting for her venture than the Central Coast, with its “beautiful rolling hills, warm days, cool nights, stunning award-winning wines, farm-to-table ingredients, and amazing people who get to call this place home.” A California native, Hoffman’s life and career have spanned the state, from her birthplace of Fortuna in the north, to her college years studying communications at UC Santa Barbara, then south to Los Angeles, where she worked as assistant director of special events at NBC Universal until she founded her own Morgen Hoffman Events. After 18 years in Los Angeles, she dreamed of oak-studded pastures and opening a second location for her event production company, and she made the move to Paso Robles in 2019. Then COVID-19 struck. While her primary business was temporarily sidelined when the state’s nonessential sector shut down, her entrepreneurial spirit kicked into overdrive, and Table & Vine was born. “I wanted an opportunity to share this amazing place with others,” she said. “I’ve always had a deep love for food and wine. It is the catalyst that brings us together and the reason I became an event planner.” Hoffman refined her new venture behind the scenes, then, when state mask restrictions loosened, she debuted Table & Vine on June 17 at La Lomita Ranch in San Luis Obispo. “It was a perfect evening, from the wine by Top Winery [in Paso Robles], exquisite food by chef Rachel [Ponce],

and, of course, the ambience of La Lomita Ranch,” said Tom Halen, general manager of the 240-acre property, featuring a Spanish-style bed and breakfast, vacation rental, and vineyard. Halen and La Lomita Ranch owners Alan and Rebecca Vander Horst were so impressed that they plan to host a future event at the town of Harmony, also managed by Halen and owned by the Vander Horsts. “Spending a communal evening with old and new friends in Harmony [would] be magical,” Halen said. Most recently, the spotlight was on Cambria on July 29 when Table & Vine showcased Covell Ranch, famed for its Clydesdale horses, Monterey pine forest, and ocean views. Guests were transported by wagon to an open field atop the 1,500-acre property, where chef Matthew Roberts— assisted by sous chef Ponce—dished up a decadent four-course dinner featuring milkbraised lamb as its centerpiece. Roberts sources his ingredients from around the county—for the Covell event, in addition to pairing his courses with wine from Stolo Vineyards in Cambria, Roberts worked with 12 different farms and ranches to bring his menu to fruition. “When I have dinners,” Roberts said, “first and foremost, I get inspired by ingredients; that’s the driving force. The approach to the menu … comes down to celebrating all the hard work that goes into the product and telling the story of the hands that feed us.” Hoffman adds that all her events are carefully orchestrated, featuring partners who align with her brand philosophy. She looks for “up-and-coming chefs and vintners who are making a name for themselves and have an amazing product or service to share with us.” Or, as is the case with Table & Vine’s next dinner experience, she selects “a long-standing, well-known winery or chef that has a beautiful story here on the Central Coast and has helped grandfather or develop the area as we know it today.” No one fits that bill more closely than Gary Eberle, who will be pouring at Sensorio in Paso Robles on Aug. 25. Eberle’s long list of accolades includes producing the country’s first 100 percent syrah varietal in 1978 and co-founding the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area in 1983. “Gary Eberle, quite frankly, rules,” said chef Ron Frazier, who, along with chef Kenny Seliger, will be creating the farm-to-table meal. “He was such a

gracious host to us during our tasting. His wines are incredible, and his staff is top-notch. He is on the Paso Robles wine Mount Rushmore. It’s humbling to work with someone of Gary’s reputation and accomplishments.” Eberle was likewise impressed with Frazier and Seliger, executive sous chef and executive chef, respectively, of In Bloom restaurant, slated to open this fall at Paso Market Walk. “We tasted through several wines with the chefs,” Eberle said, “but I wanted the chefs to select the wines that inspired them. I wanted to see where the flavors of the wine would take the food pairings. “We narrowed it down to five wines: our barbera—one of our Italian varietals and one we do very well; the estate cabernet—my flagship and why I became a winemaker; the viognier—my favorite white wine, and, as far as I am concerned, our most friendly food-pairing wine; the Cotes-du-Robles—our red Rhone blend; and, of course, our estate muscat canelli, which is semi-sweet and refreshing, the perfect way to end the meal. “Of course, I have stories behind each and every one of these wines,” Eberle

continued, “which I will look forward to sharing at the dinner.” The dinner will be set amid “a beautiful sea of lights,” added Eberle, whose winery is located half a mile from Sensorio, a 15acre garden and art attraction owned by locals Ken and Bobbi Hunter. Hoffman will finalize additional monthly dinner experiences shortly, and guest capacity for each has varied, from 50 at La Lomita and Covell ranches, to a maximum of 96 at Sensorio. Table & Vine will most likely go dark during the colder, off-season months of November to February, Hoffman said, and in the new year, she said she might explore new partnerships and ideas, such as Sunday brunch. She’s excited about the future, but one element will remain constant—crafting “a truly unforgettable dining experience that incorporates all of the vibrant flavors, ingredients, culinary talents, and viewpoints found here on the Central Coast,” she said, “... all onto one table.”∆ Flavor Writer Cherish Whyte can’t wait to see where Table & Vine heads next.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the County of San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing to consider the adoption of a Resolution modifying the service area boundaries of the San Luis Obispo Valley Basin – County of San Luis Obispo Groundwater Sustainability Agency (County GSA) to align with the revised City of San Luis Obispo (City) boundary as identified in the San Luis Obispo Local Agency Formation Commission Resolutions 2018-08 and 2020-10. Background On May 23, 2017, the County formed the County GSA over the County’s portion of the San Luis Obispo Valley Groundwater Basin (SLO Basin) to comply with the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). At that time, the County GSA’s service area covered all portions of the SLO Basin, as identified in the State Department of Water Resources’ Bulletin 118, not otherwise covered by the City limits. Since then, the City has completed two annexations from the County. These annexation areas include the San Luis Ranch area near Madonna Road (Annexation No. 80) and the Fiero East-West area near the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (Annexation No. 81). Consistent with the policy and stated intent of the County’s SGMA Strategy and Resolution 2017-146, the County is considering action to modify the boundaries of the County GSA to withdraw from serving as the GSA for said areas. Should the Board of Supervisors decide to adopt the Resolution such action would allow for modification of the County GSA boundaries to align with the City’s updated boundaries and maintain compliance with SGMA requirements. Hearing Information Date and Time:

Tuesday, August 24, 2021 (9:00 a.m.)

CLA FOR E T A V PRI IES T R A P

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Filmmaker Federico Fellini had an unexpected definition of happiness. He said it was “being able to speak the truth without hurting anyone.” I suspect you will have abundant access to that kind of happiness in the coming weeks, Aries. I’ll go even further: You will have extra power to speak the truth in ways that heal and uplift people. My advice to you, therefore, is to celebrate and indulge your ability. Be bold in expressing the fullness of what’s interesting to you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Look for a long time at what pleases you, and longer still at what pains you,” wrote the novelist Colette. What?! Was she making a perverse joke? That’s wicked advice, and I hope you adopt it only on rare occasions. In fact, the exact opposite is the healthy way to live—especially for you in the coming weeks. Look at what pains you, yes. Don’t lose sight of what your problems and wounds are. But please, for the sake of your dreams, for the benefit of your spiritual and psychological health, look longer at what pleases you, energizes you, and inspires you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you deepen your affection for butterflies and hummingbirds, I will love it. If you decide you want the dragonfly or bumblebee or lark to be your spirit creature, I will approve. You almost always benefit from cultivating relationships with swift, nimble, and lively influences—and that’s especially true these days. So give yourself full permission to experiment with the superpower of playful curiosity. You’re most likely to thrive when you’re zipping around in quest of zesty ripples and sprightly rhythms.

(June 21-July 22): Life is showing you truths about what you are not, what you don’t need, and what you shouldn’t strive for. That’s auspicious, although it may initially feel unsettling. I urge you to welcome these revelations with gratitude. They will help you tune in to the nuances of what it means to be radically authentic. They will boost your confidence in the rightness of the path you’ve chosen for yourself. I’m hoping they may even show you which of your fears are irrelevant. Be hungry for these extraordinary teachings.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The next two months will be a propitious time for you and your intimate allies to grow closer by harnessing the power of your imaginations. I urge you to be inventive in dreaming up ways to educate and entertain each other. Seek frisky adventures together that will delight you. Here’s a poem by Vyacheslav Ivanov that I hope will stimulate you: “We are two flames in a midnight forest. We are two meteors that fly at night, a two-pointed arrow of one fate. We are two steeds whose bridle is held by one hand. We are two eyes of a single gaze, two quivering wings of one dream, two-voiced lips of single mysteries. We are two arms of a single cross.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo spiritual author Don Miguel Ruiz urges us not to take anything personally. He says that if someone treats us disrespectfully, it’s almost certainly because they are suffering from psychological wounds that make them act in vulgar, insensitive ways. Their attacks have little to do with what’s true about us. I agree with him, and will add this important caveat. Even if you refrain from taking such abuses personally, it doesn’t mean you should tolerate them. It doesn’t mean you should keep that person in your life or allow them to bully you in the future. I suspect these are important themes for you to contemplate right now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “People who feel deeply, live deeply, and love deeply are destined to suffer deeply,” writes poet Juansen Dizon. To that romanticized, juvenile nonsense, I say: NO! WRONG! People who feel and live and love

deeply are more emotionally intelligent than folks who live on the surface—and are therefore less fragile. The deep ones are likely to be psychologically adept; they have skills at liberating themselves from the smothering crush of their problems. The deep ones also have access to rich spiritual resources that ensure their suffering is a source of transformative teaching—and rarely a cause of defeat. Have you guessed that I’m describing you as you will be in the coming weeks?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Professor of psychology Ethan Kross tells us there can be healthy, creative forms of envy. “Just as hunger tells us we need to eat,” he writes, “the feeling of envy could show us what is missing from our lives that really matters to us.” The trick is to not interpret envy as a negative emotion, but to see it as useful information that shows us what we want. In my astrological opinion, that’s a valuable practice for you to deploy in the coming days. So pay close attention to the twinges of envy that pop into your awareness. Harness that volatile stuff to motivate yourself as you make plans to get the very experience or reward you envy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Poet Walt Whitman bragged that he was “large.” He said, “I contain multitudes.” One critic compared him to “a whole continent with its waters, with its trees, with its animals.” Responding to Whitman, Sagittarian poet Gertrud Kolmar uttered an equally grandiose boast. “I too am a continent,” she wrote. “I contain mountains never-reached, scrubland unpenetrated, pond bay, river-delta, salt-licking coast-tongue.” That’s how I’m imagining you these days, dear Sagittarius: as unexplored territory: as frontier land teeming with undiscovered mysteries. I love how expansive you are as you open your mind and heart to new self-definitions. I love how you’re willing to risk being unknowable for a while as you wander out in the direction of the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Poet Ezra Pound wrote a letter to novelist James Joyce that included the following passage: “You are fucking with my head, and so far I’ve been enjoying it. Where is the crime?” I bring this up, Capricorn, because I believe the coming weeks will be prime time for you to engage with interesting souls who fuck with your head in enjoyable ways. You need a friendly jolt or two: a series of galvanizing prods; dialogs that catalyze you to try new ways of thinking and seeing; lively exchanges that inspire you to experiment.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Blogger Mandukhai Munkhbaatar offers advice on the arts of intimate communion. “Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face,” she tells us. “Do not fall in love with the idea of being in love.” She also wants you to know that it’s best for your long-term health and happiness if you don’t seek cozy involvement with a person who is afraid of your madness, or with someone who, after you fight, disappears and refuses to talk. I approve of all these suggestions. Any others you would add? It’s a favorable phase to get clearer about the qualities of people you want and don’t want as your allies.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I gave my readers homework, asking them to answer the question, “What is your favorite rule to break?” In response, Laura Grolla sent these thoughts: “My favorite rule to break is an unwritten one: that we must all stress and strive for excellence. I have come up with a stress-busting mantra, ‘It is OK to be OK.’ In my OKness, I have discovered the subtle frontier of contentment, which is vast and largely unexplored. OKness allows me not to compete for attention, but rather to pay attention to others. I love OKness for the humor and deep, renewing sleep it has generated. Best of all, OKness allows me to be happily aging rather than anxiously hot.” I bring this to your attention, Pisces, because I think the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to investigate and embody the relaxing mysteries of OKness. ∆
