AN ANSWER TO FEAR & ANXIETY? Teachers, parents and students are wondering what they can do to adjust to the “New Normal.” Nicole Boughton, local mom, teacher, crisis counselor, and neurofeedback clinician at the Lapidus Clinic has some helpful information. “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. 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, “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.” 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. Does it hurt? No, the electrodes are readonly 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. •

SLO County clerk-recorder selection committee begins work

S

FILE PHOTO

an Luis Obispo County’s clerk-recorder appointment process kicked off on Sept. 8 with a meeting of a special selection committeee, which, at the end of this month, will nominate up to seven candidates for the Board of Supervisors to consider. “This is a politically fraught time. There are a lot of politics,” Ken Hampian, a committee member and former SLO city manager, said in introductory comments. “We have the opportunity here … to set all of that aside and focus entirely on the applications in front of us.” Aiming to fill a vacancy left by elected ClerkRecorder Tommy Gong, who resigned in July, the SLO County Board of Supervisors decided in August to open up the job to any registered voter in California who was interested in applying. Each supervisor then hand-picked a person to serve on their five-member selection committee. In all, the county received 44 applications for the clerk-recorder job. Of those, only four have prior experience working in a county or city clerk’s office, according to a New Times review of the applications. The candidates with experience are Helen Nolan, the current acting SLO County clerkrecorder; Elaina Cano, election’s division manager for Santa Barbara County (and a former assistant clerk-recorder in SLO County); Jeffrey Barry, the former chief deputy clerkrecorder for Yolo County; and Lena Legge, the former assistant city clerk for the city of Bakersfield. On Sept. 8, the selection committee focused solely on the process ahead, and not the merits of the candidates. After they get a chance to review all of the candidates and their qualifications, the selection committee will meet again on Sept. 20 to nominate their top seven (or fewer) and discuss them. On Oct. 12, the Board of Supervisors will meet to interview those candidates and vote on an appointment. In an introductory statement, Chief Administrative Officer Wade Horton said he wanted to see candidates rise to the top who have demonstrated clerk experience, personal integrity, and strong leadership skills. “We’re living through some very difficult times and a divided community,” Horton said. “This isn’t a time to learn on the job.”

When asked by the committee what the SLO County clerk-recorder staff needs right now, Horton answered “proven leadership and subject matter expertise.” The selection committee is made up of Hampian; two former city clerks, Lee Price (SLO) and Marcia Torgerson (Atascadero); Vicki Janssen, legislative assistant to 1st District Supervisor John Peschong; and Charles Bell, an election law attorney who served as general counsel to the California Republican Party for more than 30 years. In discussing what qualities she’s looking for in a clerk-recorder, Price said demonstrated experience administering elections tops the list. “The person that is going to hold this job needs to know all aspects of it,” Price said. “I feel that whoever sits and takes this job needs to be somebody who can hit the ground running, who has direct experience in California election law. There’s no time to train.” Other committee members agreed, with Torgerson adding that nonpartisanship and an ability to effectively communicate with the public are also critical. “You need to have someone VACANCY SLO County is considering 44 applicants for the vacant who knows the job, and can clerk-recorder positon. relay that confidently to the public,” Torgerson said. “No one should know Whichever candidate is ultimately appointed how you feel about politics.” will serve through the November 2022 election.

access to Lambert’s notes, emails, raw interview recordings, and other documents that would have revealed the names of several anonymous sources. Many of them had accused Flores of sexual harassment. “We are entitled to find out what’s going on,” Sangers said in court on Sept. 8. But San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen dismissed the motion, acknowledging that if granted, the subpoena would have been a serious breach of source confidentiality. “It is the chilling effect that the shield law means to avoid,” he said.

Chris Lambert, the freelance journalist and Your Own Backyard podcaster who investigated the 25-year disappearance of Kristin Smart, won his case on Sept. 8 to quash the subpoena against him. The subpoena was served by Paul Flores’ defense attorney, Robert Sangers, who questioned Lambert for influencing witnesses called to the stand in the preliminary hearing to testify against his client. The move demanded

to reveal their confidential sources. Lambert’s attorney fought the subpoena by citing the privileges awarded to journalists by this law and the First Amendment. Van Rooyen said that both these laws apply in Lambert’s case. Lambert independently reported on Smart’s disappearance to produce his popular 10-episode podcast. He blogged daily details about Flores’ hearing on his podcast’s website, but he stopped that reporting on Aug. 10—after he received the subpoena. “After today’s lunch break, Chris Lambert was subpoenaed by the defense.

request to have Lambert removed from the courtroom. However, publication of the Hallway Blog will be suspended at Lambert’s own discretion until the matter is resolved,” read his editor’s note. Prosecutors alleged that Flores killed Smart in 1996 during a rape attempt in his dorm room at Cal Poly. Flores and his father are accused of hiding and later moving her body. Sangers declared that Lambert put on the “cloak of a journalist” when he interviewed Jennifer Hudson and Margarita Campos before their testimonies. He alleged that Lambert’s interviews shaped what they said on the stand. Campos was Smart’s roommate at the time of her disappearance, and Hudson said she heard Flores say that Smart was “under my ramp in Huasna.” Sangers said that the subpoena came down to “balancing the right of the press against the right of the defendant to confront and cross examine … . We are exerting balance in our favor.” Van Rooyen said he threw out the subpoena because there wasn’t a “valid distinction between what the witness told the reporter and his newsgathering conduct following that.” The subpoena would “unduly restrict media’s access to future resources,” he said. —Bulbul Rajagopal

Central Coast hospitals struggle with nurse shortages amid COVID-19 surge

Central Coast hospital officials and state legislators alike are concerned about nursing shortages amid the current surge in COVID-19 cases. Assemblymember Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo) and a group of fellow California state legislators signed a letter to state Health and Human Services Agency Secretary Mark Ghaly asking the state to let up on its nurse-to-patient ratio requirements as hospitals face record-breaking numbers of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. “Over the past several weeks, as hospitalizations rise as a result of the Delta variant’s spread, hospitals throughout the state have consistently faced a staffing shortage,” the legislators wrote. “For example, at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in the city of San Luis Obispo, there are 53 staff vacancies—half of which are nursing vacancies. This shortage threatens to impede our hospital systems’ ability to effectively treat patients in need of care.” According to the letter, California is the only state to set a required nurse-topatient ratio. During the last big winter surge, the state temporarily waived the requirement for hospitals that were paying overtime to nurses, allowing hospitals to accept more patients. But during the recent surge, waivers are no longer allowed unless a hospital completes “an onerous, costly, and timely process,” the letter states. “If there’s no waiver, what do you do as a hospital administrator?” Cunningham told New Times. “That is not a good position to put hospitals. They have to operate out of compliance, or they have to say to somebody’s grandmother who has COVID, ‘We’re sorry, we can’t find enough nurses, we’re not going to be able to intake you.’” The legislators asked the state to

reinstate its prior policy granting staffing waivers where there’s demonstrated need. Local hospital officials said nursing shortages are an issue that precede the current surge, and it’s only worsened. “Everyone’s experiencing shortages,” Sue Andersen, president and CEO of Dignity Health’s Marian Regional Medical Center, said at a Sept. 2 press conference held at the hospital. “Our staff is not immune from also catching COVID out in the community. … We have a lot of people that are working a lot of extra hours and extra shifts to take care of our community.” Andersen said the hospital is making every effort to meet the state required nursing ratios. Lompoc Valley Medical Center (LVMC) Senior Nursing Director Karen Kelly said there’s always been a nursing shortage at her hospital. “But right now, our census is high, and our COVID patients are starting to increase, so we’re requiring even more nurses,” Kelly said. “We try to get travel nurses, but they’re super expensive right now and in high demand.” The hospital has increased its use of traveling nurses by at least 50 percent since COVID-19 started, LVMC Chief Nursing Officer Yvette Cope said. Even so, meeting state-required nurse-patient ratios has been “a shift-to-shift struggle.” “We have been able to maintain our nurse-patient ratios,” Cope said. “We’re having to pull from leadership to get into patient care.” From Cope’s perspective, easing up on the state-required ratio doesn’t get at the root of the issue. “What I would like to see is more of a focus on ... these travel [nurse] agencies, and why the high costs?” Cope said. “If we were able to secure travelers at a decent cost, that would work. I’m a believer in nurse-patient ratios because it is better patient quality of care. I think we just need more nurses.” —Malea Martin

SLO City council to appoint a new mayor

Tossing aside the idea of holding an “expensive” special election for mayor, the San Luis Obispo City Council voted unanimously on Sept. 7 to move forward with an appointment process for replacing Mayor Heidi Harmon, who is resigning on Sept. 26. “We have four experienced council members. … I think we can certainly do a capable job of making an appointment,” Councilmember Carlyn Christianson said. “We’re more than halfway through the term anyway. We just have so many absolutely crucial things to be spending money on.” The City Council—without Harmon, who recused herself from the discussion— made quick work of the decision, agreeing that an appointment would be the most efficient and cost-effective route for filling the vacancy until the November 2022 election. Under the SLO city charter, in the event of a vacancy, the council must appoint a replacement member within 30 days or else hold a special municipal election to take place in 90 to 150 days. City officials said that a special election would cost between $150,000 and $200,000, not including staff time. On top of wanting to avoid that

in to help. The school district mitigates costs because it can source high-quality ingredients locally, as opposed to other regions that might have to spend more to bring in out-of-state produce. “We’re very lucky there’s such an abundance here in our county. So we’re able to source a lot from our community. We want kids to know the story of their food and how it got to their plate,” Primer said. The Seamless Summer Option—a federally and state-funded program meant to provide school meals in lowerincome areas during the summer—now covers the whole school year, giving San Luis Coastal the ability to offer the free meal scheme at a time when local children experienced hunger at a higher rate than adults. Primer said that SLO Food Bank data from 2020 showed an increase in food insecurity during the height of the pandemic. Now, she hopes that healthy school food will make a positive impact. Primer told New Times that the free and reduced meals program went through a significant update: It waived the income requirement as a qualifier. This levels the playing field, she said, because it eliminates the stigma associated with school lunches. “We have good food, and everybody wants to eat it. That’s so important in fighting hunger, because you’ve got kids who really need this program who now feel really good about participating in it. Their friends who maybe don’t have the same need—they’ve got the solid food sources at home—they wanna eat the same food at school,” Primer said. According to her department’s statistics, student participation in the San Luis Coastal meal plan jumped 56 percent on Aug. 19 launches free and (the first day of school this year) from healthy school meals the same date in 2019.

expense, Councilmember Jan Marx added that appointment is the fastest way to get the council back to five members. She said that if the council is ever split 2-2 on a vote, it cannot move forward on decisions. “You’re like dead in the water,” Marx said. “We really need to have five council members.” The City Council also discussed the high likelihood that a current council member will be appointed to Harmon’s seat, which would then leave behind a vacant council seat. At least two current council members—Andy Pease and Erica Stewart—have expressed interest in the mayor’s position, Pease told New Times. As a way to consolidate the appointments, on Sept. 9, the city will publish a notice that invites residents to apply for both/either the mayor and/ or the council. That application period will run until Sept. 24, and requires that candidates submit a 500-word statement about their qualifications and reasons for seeking the appointment. Then on Sept. 28, the four council members will receive the applications. On Oct. 5, the City Council will meet to discuss and decide on the appointments. The clerk will then administer their oaths of office. Pease said at the Sept. 7 meeting that she’s not concerned about the council successfully navigating this transition, as Harmon steps down to start a public affairs position at the Romero Institute. “I feel we’re so fortunate,” Pease said. “We have skills and experience and leadership.” —Peter Johnson

OBITUARIES

Robert Sean Douglas Aversano A LETTER TO MY SON

H

i Sean, or “Seany,” as we called you. It has been 5 years since you “took the Journey.” We miss you. Your family, teachers, coaches, teammates, skater friends, Gracie, all the other friends we are finding out you had, this here and now, all miss you.

All your favorite places: MDO, Morro Bay, Big Sur, Yosemite, the ocean everywhere, the hiking trails, local peaks, all miss you; although your spirit is strong in those places, so maybe that’s where you went. You were a wonderful 18-yearold young man, just out of SLO High and interested in philosophy and firefighting. You were bold and friendly, in great shape, and fearless. You were born and passed in San Luis Obispo. Your funeral at the Mission was packed and filled with people who felt your strong, amiable spirit and yes, very sad. So now, 5 years later, I wanted to write this letter to you and let you know you are loved and we will never, ever forget you. You were real and here with us for a short but powerful time and we feel your spirit, your presence often. As you would typically say on the way out the door, “Much Love,” my son. •

Oh, My Aching Back!

Letters Dividing waste management authority would be a ‘breach of public trust’ Regarding the Integrated Waste Management Authority (IWMA) article (“Discourse divorce,” Sept. 2): Let’s get this straight, the Board of Supervisors represents 25 percent of all total waste customers countywide. On average, therefore, each of the five supervisors represents only 5 percent of all waste customers; the other eight members of the countywide IMWA represent 75 percent of the waste customers, or 9.375 percent each. If these percentages are based on the actual numbers of waste customers, not on a city’s population or the size of a supervisorial district, then it doesn’t matter, as Supervisor Compton claims, that her district “represents one fifth of the county” area. In fact, on average, she actually represents 4.375 percent fewer waste customers than any of the other eight non-supervisorial members! Her claim, and that of Supervisors Pechong and Arnold, is irresponsible because any division of the existing IWMA into two smaller organizations undoubtedly will, as Supervisor Gibson rightly claims, delete the current advantages of various scale economies thereby increasing the cost of waste management to all customers whether they are in the city, the county, or a CSD. To use Supervisor Compton’s own words against her: “This is a huge breach of public trust.”

Therefore, whichever company currently picks up your weekly waste, you would be wise to call your supervisor ASAP and tell them to oppose the Sept. 14 resolution to officially leave the IWMA. Richard J. Krejsa supervisor, 5th District (retired)

To the anti-vax community The COVID-19 pandemic rages on, and there are still tens of thousands who have yet to get vaccinated, even though the shots are free and readily available. There is no doubt this mindset is prolonging the pandemic. Back in the early ’50s, a polio epidemic swept through this country with a vengeance. I was in grade school back then, and several of my friends came down with it. The result was withered limbs that never recovered full function, and normal lives forever changed. People were terrified. Pools were emptied, and beaches closed. It was a very frightening time. But then Dr. Jonas Salk produced a vaccine that prevented this scourge. The shots, and later the Sabin oral vaccine, were administered to all comers. My own father, the school physician, gave us the injections in the nursing office. Magically, within months, the deadly polio epidemic was stopped in its tracks, and people’s lives returned to normal. It was truly a miracle. The same thing could happen now with COVID-19, but you MUST get the shots first. Just do it; you won’t ever regret it. John Winthrop Cayucos

he Afghan man was one of thousands in Kabul attempting to escape Taliban and ISIS fighters who had conquered the country. He actually evaded the Taliban checkpoints and was even able to show his papers to the U.S. officials that granted him permission to be evacuated. They agreed to allow him to enter the sanctuary of the airfield but said he would have to leave his wife and children behind as they hadn’t been cleared. He pleaded with the officials, just as I would; what man would abandon his cherished family to save his life? His pleas were to no avail. When American forces retreated in the most ignominious and shameful surrender since the fall of Vietnam in 1975, the man and his family were abandoned, subject to the “mercies” of the Taliban. The man was an Afghan interpreter. In 2008 he saved the life of then Sen. Joe Biden along with Sen. John Kerry and our secretary of defense. Their helicopter made a forced landing deep within Taliban territory during a winter snowstorm. An American emergency reaction force was unable to reach them. After two days on the ground, a Special Forces team rescued Biden. The Afghan interpreter who kept Biden alive along with many other Americans for two decades is now hiding, pleading for rescue. His cries fall on deaf ears as Biden has declared victory and a successful surrender. The Taliban are diligently searching for this man, and when they find him, as they have others, he will be tortured after they rape his wife and daughters in his presence, who also will suffer torture and decapitation before he suffers a similar fate. Children are burned alive as local villagers are forced to watch this slaughter. This is happening now all over Afghanistan, even more effectively as we left behind 7,000 scanners used to verify ID of Afghans working for U.S. forces. All of that personnel data is now in the hands of a ruthless terrorist organization. Another group pleaded for rescue—230 orphaned Afghan girls, many training to be musicians, were turned away despite pleas for rescue by Western-aid groups. They were left behind, captured by the Taliban, and are being sold off as wives to Taliban fighters. The girls were mostly of middle-school age, as young as 12, sold off into a life of misery, their hopes destroyed by the callousness indifference of bloodless State Department lackeys. Their fate is now the fate of all women in Afghanistan. For 20 years they were allowed to hope and dream of a better life—where women were treated not as property to be bartered, bought, and sold for the pleasure of men but treated as human beings, receiving medical care and education for the first time in centuries. Our retreat and surrender has plunged Afghanistan back into darkness, devoid of light, even music, which the Taliban bans. To make that point last week, they captured a popular Afghan folk singer and hanged him from the rotor blades of a captured American Blackhawk helicopter. The gross incompetence displayed by Biden and his national security team is responsible for every drop of Afghan blood being spilled, a result of a malevolent policy of deceit of both

the American Congress and people. The Reuters news agency revealed a leaked phone conversation between President Biden and Afghan President Ghani in which Biden insisted Ghani present a more positive perception of the rapidly deteriorating Afghan military situation despite military and intelligence reporting of a massive Taliban offensive, supported by 15,000 al-Qaeda fighters from Pakistan. The Pakistani intelligence services were supplying logistical and intelligence support to the Taliban as Biden’s team was ordering a reduction of American airpower and logistical support to the Afghans. We’d built a military force for the Afghan government, heavily dependent upon American intelligence, drones, logistical support, and contractors to maintain it. All of it was summarily withheld to meet Biden’s arbitrary deadline of withdrawal of Aug. 31. The Taliban offensive collapsed Afghan army units who, when literally out of ammunition, surrendered and were summarily executed on video, displayed globally on the internet. We abandoned hundreds of Americans, thousands of Afghan allies, and military equipment equal to 85 percent of all the military aid we’ve given to Israel over the last 70 years. Biden caused a generational strategic disaster that decimated our intelligence capabilities in the region, destroying our global credibility as a reliable ally. Biden has increased the probability of war in this decade with China/Taiwan, Russia/Eastern Europe, and North Korea as our failure of political will to fight is irreparably compromised. Our worst sin however is moral as we have violated a biblical admonition: “‘Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.’ If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this, does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?’” (Proverbs 24:10-12) Once again, America abandoned an ally, demonstrating it no longer has the political will to stand for the moral principles that make a great nation. ∆ Al Fonzi had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

n the world of San Luis Obispo County politics, we’ve got some stuff happening. On the one hand, we’ve got a mayor leaving mid-term—that’d be SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon, for those of you who can’t keep up—and a SLO City Council opting for the pragmatic cost-effective approach of appointing her replacement. Say goodbye to the red, red progressive rose of county politicking and say hello to a new lovely leading lady: Will it be moderate yet still liberal City Councilmember Erica Stewart or liberal but progressively so City Councilmember Andy Pease? Rumor has it, they both want it. Will the appointment be politically fraught or decisively civil? I guess we’ll find out as soon as they get things figured out. Councilmember Jan Marx seems very worried that once Harmon leaves, the four remaining liberal elected officials will have trouble agreeing! What if they align 2-2 on an issue? Who will break the tie? That would only happen if something like night hiking came up again? But I do get it. Even liberals disagree. Usually, though, it’s liberals disagreeing with conservatives for ideology’s sake! As is so clearly happening on SLO County’s other hand, where we’ve got a vacancy at the tippity-toppity of the county elections office, and filling that spot has already made for a spicy conversation. With clear lines being drawn in the ideological middle. And, on that side of the county line,

conservatives clearly take the cake! Instead of simply appointing the deputy clerk recorder to replace former ClerkRecorder Tommy Gong, the majority of the Board of Supervisors decided it would be best to appoint someone from a pool of applicants that will be narrowed down by a special selection committee. “This is a politically fraught time. There are a lot of politics,” committee member and former SLO City Manager Ken Hampian said in the understatement of the year during the committee’s Sept. 8 meeting. With 44 applicants to choose from, it appears that only four are “qualified”—as in, have some clerking experience—and one is the deputy clerk-recorder, Helen Nolan, who is currently the county’s acting clerk-recorder. It’s good to know that most of the people applying to run the county’s elections are just as unqualified as the people who apply for almost any other job. Being the vice president and CFO at the Boardwalk Auto Center in Redwood City doesn’t qualify you to run elections, David Evans.

A

vaccinated. Unvaccinated attendees have to provide a negative COVID-19 test dated 72 hours prior to the event. Even without students returning to campus just yet, 783 people packed into Mott for the home game. Volleyball fans often stomped their feet in rhythmic unison, mimicking a mustang stampede to show their support. “I think a lot of people in our community are ready for this … they want to be together. We’re going to see some strong returns,” Cal Poly Athletics Director Don Oberhelman said. With football and soccer also playing their first games since the pandemic this fall, college sports are back—but the forced downtime during 2020 took its toll on athletes. “It was really sad because I’m from out of state, so I was really far away and didn’t get to see my teammates. But there was never a thought in my mind that we weren’t going to get a season,” said Phillips, a Houston native. When the lockdown began in March 2020, athletics administrators decided to stop practice for only two weeks. It grew to several months before the players could return to Cal Poly in August that year to continue with their training. “It wasn’t until we were back on campus when we found out that our fall season got canceled, which was really, really upsetting,” Phillips said. “That ended up happening for every team in the NCAA except for the Big West. That hit us really hard because we had to sit and watch everyone in the nation play a volleyball season except for us.” When the Big West Conference, which includes several state universities like Cal Poly and UC Barbara, canceled its 2020 fall season, the pause affected a slew of sports, including women’s volleyball, and men’s and women’s cross country and soccer. The players took on a mammoth task when they chose to return to campus for training last fall. Away from their families, they navigated the initial waves of the pandemic together. The girls attended a full roster of online classes after daily four-hour practices. At the time, Cal Poly enforced a mask mandate. Later, when vaccines

giant promotional poster of Meredith Phillips welcomed Cal Poly sports fans back to Mott Athletics Center on Sept. 1. Inside, the real Phillips entertained the crowd by setting a careerhigh of 14 kills for the Mustangs’ volleyball game against Texas A&M. It was the first home game for the women’s volleyball team since December 2019, after a COVID-19-imposed hiatus benched them for more than a year. Spectators wondered if Cal Poly’s team could keep its title of the nation’s longest active home winning streak. But the Mustangs lost to the Aggies in a 3-2 tussle, effectively breaking their uninterrupted five-year home reign. “It’s exciting that we have the whole season to work and improve,” Phillips, the team’s co-captain, said. Mustangs head coach Caroline Walters agreed. “The goal of preseason is to learn with each set and match we play, gaining experience about the flow of the matches, and how we can be more efficient and effective,” she said. The volleyball team will play a full season in 2021-22. The preseason match was their first home game in more than 600 days. It was also their third game since 2019, of which they’ve only won one. Unlike regional conferences such as the one Texas A&M belongs to, the Big West Conference was the only college athletics association that canceled its games due to the pandemic. It caused Mustangs teams to lose out on competitive matches that coaches said are crucial for improvement. The Sept. 1 opener was a test for Cal Poly Athletics in a post-vaccine era. SLO County reinstated the indoor mask mandate the day before the game, on Aug. 31, because of surging COVID-19 cases on the Central Coast. In mid-August, the athletics office received instructions from the state to ensure that everyone attending indoor games is masked up and

were available, all players and coaches voluntarily got their shots. Oberhelman said that unvaccinated players would still be a part of the team with their scholarships intact but they wouldn’t be allowed to actively play. The team had to play with masks on, and the ball had to be sanitized after every pass. “It’s hard to breathe with something covering your mouth like that. It’s hard to communicate with your team and coaches too,” said Mustangs setter Avalon DeNecochea. It was a compromise the team had to make if they wanted to continue playing volleyball, mask acne—aka maskne—and all, Phillips added. Then came the COVID-19 outbreak. Phillips and a few other players tested positive, so Cal Poly sent the entire team home for the winter. They couldn’t meet again in person until August 2021. But so many missed practices wasn’t as big a deal for some players. In June 2020, DeNecochea had hip surgery because of volleyball injuries. It made her see the silver lining behind the canceled season. Normally, DeNecochea would have had to sit the season out completely, but the pandemic gave her the time she needed to fully recover. “Once volleyball was taken away, it made me appreciate it even more.

On the flip side, defensive specialist Taylor Rose said that being out of practice made them forget about the smaller details when they returned to competitive games. They lost their first post-COVID-19 game to the University of Louisville, and it was a learning experience. Rose admitted that the smaller things—a close point difference or a referee making a bad call—got to them. “We underestimated a little bit about VOLLEYBALL continued page 14

U

nfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is still hanging on as students head back to college campuses for in-person classes. After being masked up and stuffed in a classroom, you’ll want to find a place where you can unmask and breathe in that free air. Fortunately, San Luis Obispo County has a lot of wild space, outdoor activities, and exploration opportunities for everyone. Hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, surfing, fishing, rock climbing—the list goes on. And there are plenty of places where you can even rent the gear you need and get a little help figuring out where to go and what to do. Here’s a list of places that can help get you started:

At Cal Poly

Poly Escapes (Cal Poly Recreation Center, (805) 756-1287, asi.calpoly.edu/ experience/poly-escapes) For Cal Poly students, the best deal around is right on campus with ASI (Associated Students Inc.), which they already pay a fee toward as part of tuition costs. Offering equipment rentals for backpacking, camping, climbing, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding, surfing, and snowboarding, it’s a one-stop gear rental shop offering small items like headlamps and stoves to larger things such as tents and stand-up paddleboards. ASI has wetsuits, trekking poles, outdoor climbing shoes, water coolers, snowshoes, and more so Poly students can experiment with that outdoor lifestyle from spring to winter. Poly Escapes also has a climbing park at the Rec Center—50-foot climbing wall and bouldering wall—for all skill levels, and offers guided hiking and backpacking trips during most quarters. Due to COVID-19, Poly Escapes trips won’t be offered during fall 2021.

Close to campus

The Mountain Air (667 Marsh St., suite D, SLO; (805) 543-1676, themountainair.com) As a locally owned outdoor store, the Mountain Air is unbeatable for knowledgeable service and a super selection of gear that can help you get lost. For gear rentals, though, they

specialize in winter sports—specifically for hitting the slopes. Before you leave town for your winter wonderland vacation, find skis, snowboards, boots, and poles that you can rent by the day or days as you’re heading out. REI (313 Madonna Road, suite B, SLO; (805) 329-4670; rei.com) We all know what REI is, but did you know the famed outdoor store also offers equipment rentals? I didn’t until this past summer, when I was desperately searching for a kayak rental in the city of SLO. Turns out, the SLO REI only rents paddleboards, but that’s good enough for me. Contact the store for more info. You can also take virtual outdoor classes to learn exactly what to be prepared for as you head into the woods—how to be bear aware, what to pack for winter camping, and wilderness first aid tips. Visit rei. com/events/p/us-ca-san-luis-obispo for more. The Pad Climbing Gym (888 Ricardo Court, SLO; thepadclimbing.org) Thinking about trying climbing, but haven’t ever tried it? You don’t have to have any experience to join The Pad, which offers free climbing shoe rental and 24-hour access for its members. Don’t have funds? The Pad has options, including a sliding scale and volunteer memberships.

BACK TO CLASS from page 20

“I definitely feel more cautious now, because honestly in the last two weeks I’ve seen it affect a lot of people I know,” she said. But, she added, knowing that almost everyone is vaccinated helps. Cal Poly is following the vaccine mandate established by the California State University system, which requires any student or employee accessing campus in any way to be fully vaccinated, Media Relations Director Matt Lazier said via email. On-campus resident students must be fully vaccinated by Sept. 14, and all other students and employees must be by Sept. 20, the first day of classes. Religious and medical exemptions to getting vaccinated are offered, and about 5 percent of students have requested these so far. These students will be required to get tested for COVID-19 twice a week. Another 85 percent are fully vaccinated, and the remaining 5 percent haven’t responded to the university yet. “We are continuing to communicate with them to ensure that they comply with the mandate,” Lazier said. “Those students who do not vaccinate or receive an exemption risk disenrollment and eviction from university housing and could endanger their financial aid and ability to enroll in the future.” Like at Cuesta, masking is required at all times indoors at Cal Poly, regardless of vaccination status. Cal Poly students must also take a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their first arrival on campus, regardless of vaccination.

Anyone who tests positive is required to isolate, Lazier said. He added that, in the case of a positive test, the university follows the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal OSHA) guidelines for exposure investigation and workplace notification. Lazier also confirmed that the university was recently contacted by Cal OSHA about an investigation into Cal Poly’s notification system. A COVID-19 positive student allegedly attended a class during the summer quarter, and employees were not informed of the exposure for two days, according to reporting from The Tribune. By law, notification is required within one day. “Cal Poly is providing all appropriate information and assistance in regard to that inquiry,” Lazier said. “If the university learns of a confirmed positive case, we are required to tell all employees who were within the impacted area of the case or who were in close contact with the individual who tested positive.” Cuesta President Stearns said the sudden rise in cases countywide has certainly felt like a curveball—but she’s confident local schools can handle it. “The rise in our local case count really shifted right before the term began. A month ago we thought we’d have a very different fall than what we are seeing,” she said. “It was disappointing to be at that place. “But from the beginning we have worked hard to maintain our protocols in alignment with county Public Health.” ∆ Reach Staff Writer Malea Martin at mmartin@newtimesslo.com.

STUDENT GUIDE 2021

C

al Poly and Cuesta College are back! While first-year ’Stangs and Cuestonians will be introduced to SLO Town for the first time, even returning students likely haven’t experienced a fully reopened SLO since the spring of 2020. For the sake of the newbs and those returning from a long hiatus, New Times put together a food and drink guide to ease the transition. Here, you’ll find a mix of good student deals, convenient locations, staff favorites, and certified SLO classics. Happy start of school!

Coffee / cafés

Scout Coffee Co (Building 172, yakʔitʸutʸu area; 1130 Garden St.; 880 Foothill Blvd.) Scout Coffee made a big splash on the local café scene when it opened its impeccably decorated, brick-laden space on Garden Street in 2014, and the coffee shop/roaster continues to make bold moves. Owners Sara and Jon Peterson recently announced their third location slated for Cal Poly’s campus opening this fall. It will be in the yakʔitʸutʸu housing neighborhood, next to the Cal Poly Welcome Center. Another great option: Kin Coffee Bar (847 Higuera St.)

Breakfast food

With McDelivery, McDonald’s comes to you.

Del Monte Café (1901 Santa Barbara Ave.) Here’s our chance to plug not only a bomb breakfast spot, but SLO’s newest bike path that will make getting to town from campus a lot easier. Consider this scenario: It’s Saturday morning and you’re a little hung over and very hungry. Hop on a bike and cruise down California Boulevard toward downtown. Stay on the bike path that, starting in late October, will swerve to the right and take you on an easy course to downtown. Skip the downtown crowd and ride Osos Street until you see a 100-year-old building on your right with “Del Monte Café” across the top. You can thank me later. Another great option: Charlie’s Place (981 Foothill Blvd.)

Delis

Kona’s Deli (977 Foothill Blvd.) Kona’s Deli, located conveniently on Foothill Boulevard near campus, really loves their college students. This surf/ Hawaiian-themed shop has some very sweet deals for students. Their 6-inch sandos are always $6.50 for customers with a Cuesta or Cal Poly student ID and (foot-longs are $9.50). On Thursdays, FILE PHOTO BY KAORI PETERS

students get another 10 percent off. On Fridays, their beers are $2. Kona is one of the best student values in town. Another great option: Lincoln Market & Deli (496 Broad St.)

Pizza

Woodstock’s Pizza (1000 Higuera St.) A SLO institution, Woodstock’s Pizza does everything well. The pizza is cheesy and delicious. The tap list is robust. The environment is fun. The prices are reasonable. Its new outdoor parklet is nice and spacious. Stop by for a quick lunch, settle in for trivia night with your friends, or end your night out with a midnight slice. There are countless reasons to go to Woodstock’s. Students get $6 off extralarge pizzas, too. Another great option: Nucci’s Pizza (785 Foothill Blvd; 3165 Broad St. #106)

Italian food

La Locanda (1137 Garden St.) Looking for a nice date night restaurant or a place to wow your parents when they’re in town? La Locanda is it. Seriously, don’t look further. Criminally underrated, this quaint downtown establishment is headed by Chef Luciano Bardinelli, who makes the best Italian food in town. Despite the restaurant’s humble feel, Bardinelli’s pedigree is unmatched. His previous restaurant in Seattle made him known as the Godfather of Seattle’s Italian food Renaissance. He moved to SLO in 2012 to be closer to his family. Lucky us! Pro tip: Get the lasagna. Another great option: Flour House (690 Higuera St.)

Mexican food

Tacos de Acapulco (596 California Blvd.) Located in a small but action-packed shopping center near campus on California Boulevard, Tacos de Acapulco is not only super convenient for students, GRUB GUIDE continued page 28

CA residents scramble to get last Walking Liberty Rolls CALIFORNIA - Once California residents got wind that California State Restricted Bank Rolls filled with Silver Walking Liberties dating back to the early 1900’s were being handed over, there was a mad dash to get them. That’s because some of these U.S. Gov’t issued silver coins are already worth hundreds in collector value. “It’s like a run on the banks. The phones are ringing off the hook. That’s because everyone is trying to get them before they’re all gone,” according to officials at the National Mint and Treasury who say they can barely keep up with all the orders. In fact, they had to impose a strict limit of 4 California State Restricted Bank Rolls. So, if you get the chance to get your hands on these State Restricted Bank Rolls you better hurry because hundreds of California residents already have and you don’t want to miss out. You see, the U.S. Gov’t stopped

minting these Silver Walking Liberties in 1947 and there can never be any more which makes them extremely collectible. And here’s the best part. The rolls are unsearched so there’s no telling how much they could be worth in collector value. That’s why at just the $39 state minimum set by National Mint and Treasury it’s a deal too good to pass up. But you better hurry because these California State Restricted Bank Rolls are the only ones known to exist and California residents are grabbing them up as fast as they can. That’s because they make amazing gifts for children, grandchildren and loved ones. Just imagine the look on their face when you hand them one of the State Restricted Rolls — they’ll tell everyone they know what you did for them.

■ GOT ‘EM: Residents all across California who get their hands on these State Restricted Silver Walking Liberty Bank Rolls are definitely showing them off. That’s because they are the only ones known to exist. And here’s the best part, these Bank Rolls are loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued Silver Walking Liberty coins some dating back to the early 1900’s and worth up to 100 times their face value so everyone wants them.

Last State Restricted Silver Walking Liberty Bank Rolls go to California residents California residents get first dibs on last remaining Bank Rolls loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued Silver Walking Liberties dating back to the early 1900’s some worth up to 100 times their face value for the next 2 days STATE DISTRIBUTION: A strict limit of 4 State Restricted Bank Rolls per CA resident has been imposed CALIFORNIA - “It’s a miracle these State Restricted Bank Rolls even exist. That’s why Hotline Operators are bracing for the flood of calls,” said Laura Lynne, U.S. Coin and Currency Director for the National Mint and Treasury. For the next 2 days the last remaining State of California Restricted Bank Rolls loaded with rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued Silver Walking Liberties are actually being handed over to California residents who call the State Toll-Free Hotlines listed in today’s newspaper publication. “I recently spoke with a numismatic expert in United States of America coins and currency who said ‘In all my years as a numismatist I’ve only ever seen a handful of these rarely seen Silver Walking Liberties issued by the U.S. Gov’t back in the early 1900’s. But to actually find them sealed away in State Restricted Bank Rolls still in pristine condition is like finding buried treasure. So anyone lucky enough to get their hands on these Bank Rolls had better hold on to them,’” Lynne said. “Now that the State of California Restricted Bank Rolls are being offered up we won’t be surprised if thousands of California residents claim the maximum limit allowed of 4 Bank Rolls per resident before they’re all gone,” said Lynne. “That’s because after the Bank Rolls

were loaded with 15 rarely seen Silver Walking Liberties, each verified to meet a minimum collector grade of very good or above, the dates and mint marks of the U.S. Gov’t issued Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars sealed away inside the State of California Restricted Bank Rolls have never been searched. But, we do know that some of these coins date clear back to the early 1900’s and are worth up to 100 times their face value, so there is no telling what California residents will find until they sort through all the coins,” Lynne went on to say. And here’s the best part. If you are a resident of the state of California you cover only the $39 per coin state minimum set by the National Mint and Treasury, that’s fifteen rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued Silver Walking Liberties worth up to 100 times their face value for just $585 which is a real steal because non state residents must pay $118 per coin which totals $1,770 if any coins remain after the 2-day deadline. The only thing California residents need to do is call the State Toll-Free Hotlines printed in today’s newspaper publication before the 2-day order deadline ends. “Rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued silver coins like these are highly sought after, but we’ve never seen anything like this before. According to The Official Red Book, a Guide Book of United States Coins many Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars are now worth $40 - $825 each in collector value,” Lynne said. “We’re guessing thousands of California residents will be taking the maximum limit of 4 Bank Rolls because they make such amazing gifts for any occasion for children, parents, grandparents, friends and loved ones,” Lynne continued. “We know the phones will be ringing off the hook. That’s why hundreds of Hotline Operators are standing by to answer the phones beginning at 8:30 am this morning. We’re going to do our best, but with just 2 days to answer all the calls it won’t be easy. So make sure to tell everyone to keep calling if all lines are busy. We’ll do our best to answer them all.” Lynne said. The only thing readers of today’s newspaper publication need to do is make sure they are a resident of the state of California and call the National TollFree Hotlines before the 2-day deadline ends midnight tomorrow. ■

HOW TO CLAIM THE LAST STATE RESTRICTED BANK ROLLS

FACTS:

If you are a California State Resident read the important information below about claiming the State Silver Bank Rolls, then call the State Toll-Free Hotline at 8:30 am: 1-800-979-3771 EXT: RWB1902

Are these Silver Walking Liberties worth more than other half dollars:

Yes. These U.S. Gov’t issued Silver Walking Liberties were minted in the early 1900’s and will never be minted again. That makes them extremely collectible. The vast majority of half dollars minted after 1970 have no silver content at all and these Walking Liberties were one of the last silver coins minted for circulation. That’s why many of them now command hundreds in collector value so there’s no telling how much they could be worth in collector value someday.

How much are State Restricted Walking Liberty Silver Bank Rolls worth:

It’s impossible to say, but some of these U.S Gov’t issued Walking Liberties dating back to the early 1900’s are worth up to 100 times the face value and there are 15 in each Bank Roll so you better hurry if you want to get your hands on them. Collector values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees. But we do know they are the only California State Silver Bank Rolls known to exist and Walking Liberties are highly collectible so anyone lucky enough to get their hands on these Silver Bank Rolls should hold onto them because there’s no telling how much they could be worth in collector value someday.

Why are so many California residents claiming them:

Because they are the only State Restricted Walking Liberty Silver Bank Rolls known to exist and everyone wants their share. Each Bank Roll contains a whopping 15 Silver Walking Liberties dating back to the early 1900’s some worth up to 100 times their face value. Best of all California residents are guaranteed to get them for the state minimum set by the National Mint and Treasury of just $39 per Silver Walking Liberty for the next two days.

How do I get the State Restricted Walking Liberty Silver Bank Rolls:

California residents are authorized to claim up to the limit of 4 State Restricted Walking Liberty Silver Bank Rolls by calling the State Toll Free Hotline at 1-800-979-3771 Ext. RWB1902 starting at precisely 8:30 am this morning. Everyone who does is getting the only State Restricted Walking Liberty Silver Bank Rolls known to exist. That’s a full Bank Roll containing 15 Silver Walking Liberties from the early 1900’s some worth up to 100 times their face value for just the state minimum set by the National Mint and Treasury of just $39 per Silver Walking Liberty, which is just $585 for the full Bank Rolls and that’s a real steal because non state residents are not permitted to call before 5 pm tomorrow and must pay $1,770 for each California State Restricted Walking Liberty Silver Bank Roll if any remain.

but also happens to serve up some of the best Mexican food in SLO. Here you’ll find friendly staff, tantalizing carnitas tacos, and, well, your friends and peers. This spot is well known around campus—for good reason. Another great option: Taqueria Santa Cruz (1308 Monterey St.; 862 Foothill Blvd.)

Southeast Asian food

@bites (195 Santa Rosa St.) Returning students—pay attention! This is a new Vietnamese restaurant (as of June 2020) that should become a hit with students given its location and quality. Its offerings include street food like pork buns and egg rolls and heftier items like pho and banh mi. @bites fills an important cuisine gap in SLO and is not run by lightweights. Chef Luke Ly apparently cooked for both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush when the former presidents made their official trips to Vietnam. Impressive! Another great option: My Thai (1815 Osos St.)

It all started 30 years ago with a blender in SLO.

Mandarin Gourmet (1316 Madonna Road) Here’s the God’s honest truth about Chinese food in SLO: There’s just not enough of it. That said, here are two quality Chinese restaurants you can depend on (and avoid a chain like Panda Express). Mandarin Gourmet, located in the Laguna Village Shopping Center, has been around for 20 years and cooks up some tasty, tasty dishes. A frequent winner in our Best of SLO County

Tacos de Acapulco readers poll, they specialize in Szechuan, Hunan, and Vietnamese cuisines. Another great option: Mee Heng Low Noodle House (815 Palm St.)

Japanese food

Goshi (570 Higuera St. #155) A longtime local favorite, Goshi is one of three Japanese restaurants in downtown SLO. Choice is good! You can’t go wrong with any of the three, but Goshi is a standout for its superb food and ambiance in the Creamery Marketplace. Sushi is the obvious pick here, but do not hesitate to try their teriyaki offerings. Another great option: Arigato Sushi (667 Marsh St.)

killer Monday buffet dinner, and it offers a blanket 10 percent discount on menu items for college students. That’s not a deal to pass up! Afterward, you can hit SLODoCo across the street for dessert. Double yum. Another great option: Shalimar Restaurant (3820 Broad St.)

Mediterranean

Petra (1210 Higuera St.) There’s a good chance that by the time Poly freshmen read this, they’ve already heard of Petra (or eaten there). A huge hit with students and townies alike, Petra has a prime location on the campus-adjacent fringe of downtown, great Mediterranean fare, and underrated pizzas. Their wallto-wall beverage fridge is also a sight to behold. There’s never a bad time or reason to go to Petra, as you’ll find out.

Desserts

SLO Sweets (1020 Court St.) From candy, to chocolates, to gelato, SLO Sweets has it. They also have a sweet 10 percent discount for college students. Perfect for Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or just a quick stop while you’re downtown, you’ll come here for its sweets variety and stay for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, which plays on a loop. Another great option: SLODoCo (793 Foothill Blvd.)

Breweries

Central Coast Brewing (1422 Monterey St.; 6 Higuera St.) Look away, underclassmen! Beerloving students of legal age should stop by Central Coast Brewing (CCB). It’s

a great place to dip your toes in the local craft brewery scene. With two awesome locations in town—the closest to campus is the original brewery, on upper Monterey Street—CCB makes fantastic beer and always has something fun going on, whether live music or a movie night. It’s a place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon with friends. Another great option: Barrelhouse Brewing Co (1033 Chorro St.)

Cheap Eats

Habit Burger Grill (839 Higuera St.) Broke? The Habit, located in the heart of downtown, has a tasty burger that won’t break your wallet. Its signature charburger doesn’t disappoint. And they now offer Impossible vegan burgers! Pro tip: Order the tempura green beans. Another great option: Frank’s Famous Hot Dogs (950 California Blvd.)

Veggie/Vegan

Ziggy’s Vegan Restaurant (594 California Blvd.) Ziggy’s, a 100-percent plant-based restaurant, is making the rounds in the local press right now, and deservedly so. Located in the same shopping area as Tacos de Acapulco, this small but mighty eatery is a scrumptious and welcome addition to the veggie food scene. Stop by for breakfast, tacos, burgers, “milk” shakes, and more. Another great option: Bliss Cafe (778 Higuera St., suite D) ∆ Send Assistant Editor Peter Johnson your favorite places to nosh by emailing pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

So Not Starkey PHOTO COURTESY OF THE CALIFORNIA HONEYDROPS

BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

Gather together

Make a day of it with the California Honeydrops, Proxima Parada, Nicki Bluhm, and Wordsauce at El Chorro Regional Park

I

s it just me, or do we need a Kumbaya moment? With the Gov. Gavin Newsom recall election looming, the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, and COVID-19 continuing to drive a wedge between the angry as it spreads ever further through the population, a little outdoor gathering is just what we need to feel the love and (hopefully) not spread the virus. Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents has just the ticket: the SLO Gathering at El Chorro Regional Park on Saturday, Sept. 11, where you can connect with the community in a COVID-19-safe outdoor space and plenty of California music. The California Honeydrops, Próxima Parada, Nicki Bluhm, and Wordsauce will play the daylong, family-friendly event (noon; all ages; $35 at eventbrite.com; kids 12 and under free), which will have beer, wine, and food available for purchase. The Honeydrops have come a long way since guitarist and trumpeter Lech Wierzynski and drummer Ben Malament started busking in an Oakland subway station, but the band has stayed true to that organic, street-level feel. With the addition of Jonny Bones on tenor sax and clarinet, Lorenzo Loera on keyboards, and Beau Bradbury on bass, they’ve built a powerful full-band sound to support Wierzynski’s vocals. For more than a decade, the Honeydrops have drawn on Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line to influence their infectious, vibrant energy. Their concerts are like full-on dance parties, and the band likes to jam and interact with the crowd. They leave the stage and get down on the dance floor to boogie with you. The California Honeydrops shares one vision and purpose: to make the audience dance and sing. “The whole point is to erase the boundaries between the crowd and us,” Wierzynski says in press materials. “We don’t make set-lists. We want requests. We want crowd involvement, to make people become a part of the whole thing by dancing along, singing, picking the songs, and generally coming out of their shells.” And Próxima Parada is no slouch either when it comes to getting the audience engaged, dancing, and singing. The SLOcal blue-eyed soul band— whose music promotes introspection, vulnerability, human connection, and a hell of a lot of joy—released a new album this year, Kind Reminder, and is getting set to head out on national tour—again! Starting as a group of college friends wanting to extend their dynamic to their community in San Luis Obispo, they never dreamed that their passion would reach a global audience, that they’d

perform at beautiful historic venues and music festivals, that their music would soothe and inspire people around the world. But it does and you can catch them while they’re home! California native Nicki Bluhm currently lives in Nashville, and she’s heading into her second decade of releasing albums. Bluhm stepped out on her own in 2018, with the release of To Rise You Gotta Fall, a collection of songs exploring old endings and new beginnings. Her “vintage-tinged rocking country soul” (according to the Chicago Tribune) can set your mind at ease with completely new music that sounds familiar. She’s excited to return to the road playing live shows as a solo artist after years of touring with her band, The Gramblers. She puts on a great show! So does seven-piece live hip-hop/funk band Wordsauce. Drummer Bill Gerhardt and bassist Wesley Price, guitarists Kevin Strong and Shawn Warnke, saxophonist Samuel Franklin, turntablist/producer Eric Mattson, and emcee/vocalist/ producer Rick “Risko” Loughman began developing their own style of live hiphop with funk instrumentation, and rhythmic, catchy vocals. The SLO-based band’s new album Juice, shows that their music is constantly evolving and that they’re determined to take their live show all over the world—including, of course, a SLO Gathering at El Chorro.

Vina Robles

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo play Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Thursday, Sept. 9 (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $49.50 to $79.50 at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com), with special guest John Waite. Benatar’s knock-your-socks off vocals pair nicely with Giraldo’s artistry as a guitarist, producer, and songwriter, forging a unique sound that created some of rock’s most memorable hits—“We Belong,” “Love Is A Battlefield,” “Promises In The Dark,” and “Heartbreaker.” They have sold more than 30 million records and won four consecutive Grammy’s. Ziggy Marley plays tribute to his father at Vina Robles on Saturday, Sept. 11 (8 p.m.; all ages; $56 to $86 at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). The eighttime Grammy winner, Emmy winner, humanitarian, singer-songwriter, and producer has released 15 albums to critical acclaim. His early immersion in music came at 10 years old, when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley. Now, with his own label, Tuff Gong Worldwide, and publishing company, Ishti Music, Ziggy has control of his master recordings and publishing. In May 2018, he released his most recent album, Rebellion Rises.

lthough she was born in New York City, Taffy French-Gray attributes many of her favorite childhood memories to San Luis Obispo, where her family moved when she was 5 years old. “Growing up in SLO was altogether a wonderful experience,” the local artist said. “My family lived near Cal Poly, so we used their tennis courts, basketball courts, and playing fields as if they were our own. We were walking distance to Cal Poly football games.” When not traveling on foot or riding her bike with friends, French-Gray loved when her parents would take the family on Sunday drives, “with all five kids and the dog in the back, exploring the backroads and rural areas of SLO County,” she said. One of these nostalgic backroads led to Avila Beach, which became the backdrop of many of French-Gray’s oil paintings—from seascapes to figure and still life pieces. “Many summer days were spent at the beach, usually Avila,” recalled the artist, whose latest solo exhibition features said locale in its title, Life’s a Beach: Avila to Venice, currently on display at the Santa Maria Airport.

The Valley Art Gallery presents Life’s a Beach: Avila to Venice, an exhibit of oil paintings by local artist Taffy French-Gray, at the Santa Maria Airport through the end of September. French-Gray will be hosting a special artist talk and guided tour of the exhibit on Sept. 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. The airport is located at 3217 Terminal Drive, Santa Maria. Visit valleygallery.org for more info.

This beach-themed exhibit was organized by Orcutt’s Valley Art Gallery and is slated to remain on display in the airport’s lobby through the end of September. French-Gray’s figure paintings in the show depict a variety of characters spending their day at the beach in different ways, based on sketches she’s drawn during various outings over the years. “People are generally relaxed at the beach, enjoying the day and the warmth, and when not throwing Frisbees or surfing, they are generally sitting still reading or sunbathing, which makes COASTAL CANVAS One project during an them easy to draw,” said French-Gray, who rarely art class cemented Taffy French-Gray’s love for goes anywhere without a sketchbook in hand. painting pieces based around coastal settings. “The assignment was to study the effect of Throughout her life, French-Gray would draw backlight on my subject,” she said. “What better and paint as a hobby, but she began to take her place to accomplish this than the beach with all art more seriously after retiring from her career the sunlight?” in nursing.

unnerving aspect of 2021’s Candyman has nothing to do with its titular, hookhanded killer nor the numerous throats he slits. Without giving away too much, there’s a scene where McCoy’s girlfriend, Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris) is sitting in the back of a cop’s car, and the dialogue overheard from the driver’s seat is just as stomach churning as anything else in the film. Although Peele did not direct Candyman (restricting himself to the producer’s chair), it feels like a spiritual successor to both of his directorial efforts, Get Out and Us, as all three thrillers succeed in repurposing age-old horror tropes to illustrate themes of race and privilege. Téa Peele’s influence clearly shines throughout the film, inviting audience members to reflect on some of the more challenging themes the film presents. We can’t help but consider the role Candyman plays against the sociocultural backdrop of Cabrini-Green; we’re all but forced to ponder the legend’s symbolic purpose and unwittingly find ourselves musing on the intersection of race and class as the film progresses. The eerily familiar dialogue between Brianna and the police officer provides a chilling link to current events as it depicts just a small sliver of the devastating reality that the Black community endures at the hands of the justice system. Though Candyman himself might be just an urban legend, I’m left with the impression that what the specter represents is, in fact, all too real. The climax and resolution of the film were a bit rushed; however, I thoroughly enjoyed the film’s deliciously sweet ending.

Bachelor in Paradise offers a fantastic escape for those of us who just want to collapse into the couch after a long, hard day and zone out while watching sexy, sandy model-esque people (or actual models) try to find love on a Mexican beach. Of course, the show falls into the “guilty-pleasure” category for obvious reasons, but nevertheless, it offers viewers (both members and nonmembers of “Bachelor Nation”) an endless bounty of quality entertainment.

ased on Stephen King’s debut novel, this supernatural classic from director Brian De Palma (Scarface, Carlito’s Way) follows 16-year-old Carrie White (Sissy Spacek), a socially awkward loner with the whole world seemingly out to get her, whether it’s her abusive fundamentalist mother (Piper Laurie) at home or a pack of sadistic bullies at school. The worst of her classmates is Christine

“Chris” Hargensen (Nancy Allen), who makes Mean Girls’ Regina George look like Mother Teresa in comparison. After Chris and several peers get detention for bullying Carrie during PE, Chris plots to humiliate Carrie even further by dumping a bucket of pig blood over her head during prom—resulting in some of the most iconic imagery in horror history. Little does anyone at the dance know, Carrie recently discovered she has telekinetic powers and she’s not afraid to use them. In celebration of the film’s 45th anniversary, the Downtown Centre in SLO is screening Carrie for one night only on Sunday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m. Be there or be square! (98 min.) Δ —Caleb

Perfect partners No longer a stand-alone brewery, Pair With Dead Oak is transformed into an A-Town culinary standout

D

ead Oak in downtown Atascadero sprouted new leaves with its reimagination and relaunch last month under the name Pair With Dead Oak. The brewery, which opened its doors four years ago on Entrada Avenue, has teamed up with local chef Rachel Ponce for a completely new dining experience that co-owner and brewer Jesse Kaltenberg calls “Atascadero fancy.” The transformed 2,400-square-foot space features a chic urban design with an open-concept kitchen and interior seating for 30 guests. An outdoor patio extends capacity to 45. The industrial layout manages to gel with the gastropub’s warm, welcoming atmosphere and suits A-Town’s chill vibe—as well as its increasingly sophisticated palate, says Nikki Kaltenberg, co-owner and Jesse’s wife. “We’re doing something out of the box—offering high-end, hyper-seasonal cuisine for the beer and wine lover, while continuing to be the laid-back place we were as a stand-alone brewery,” she said. For guests, what this means is you can still come in for one of Dead Oak’s smallbatch beers, if so inclined, but you might want to consider making a reservation and experiencing a dinner that “will blow your mind,” said recent guest Susan Williams, perhaps the establishment’s biggest fan. “[Pair with Dead Oak] has been open four weeks now, and I’ve been here and brought friends and colleagues in about six times. There’s always something fresh, local, and new to experience that still wows my palate and my brain,” said Williams, who lives in Bakersfield but

Pair With Dead Oak is open Thursday to Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 5925 Entrada Ave. Dinner service ends at 8:30 p.m., and brunch service ends at 1:30 p.m. For reservations, visit deadoakbrewing.com.

regularly visits the Central Coast. Williams has been following Ponce’s career since she moved to Paso Robles from Chicago in 2017. “I first met Rachel when she was working at LXV, one of my favorite Paso wineries,” she said. “At that time she was assisting the owners in creating epic spice blends to pair with their amazing wine offerings. Rachel has an incredible sense of pairing unique food with beverage flavor profiles.” After LXV, Ponce landed the executive chef position at Parrish Family Vineyard in Paso Robles, then created custom menus for private events throughout the county under the umbrella Pair with Chef Rachel. She ultimately dreamed of opening her own restaurant. The stars aligned one night when Ponce met the Kaltenbergs, who dangled the idea of a partnership. “I headed to the brewery to taste the beers and see what they were looking for,” Ponce said. “I stayed for a couple hours tasting and chatting, and we finished our initial meeting by agreeing to open a restaurant.” All of her dishes are created around what customers are drinking. “My goal is to enhance the flavor of the beverage, which the brewer or winemaker has worked so hard to achieve. I sample the wine or beer and make tasting notes. Then, I write down contrasting flavors, which are used to develop the dishes,” she said. Ponce pairs beverages with the sauces and seasonings rather than the protein, because “that’s what’s going to stick to your palate,” she explained.

THIS IS HOW WE BREW IT The Pair With Dead Oak team includes, from left, operations manager Alex Marter, co-owner Nikki Kaltenberg, co-owner and brewer Jesse Kaltenberg, co-owner and chef Rachel Ponce, and manager of sales and distribution Sam Pechacek.

Her dishes are almost exclusively sourced from locally available products. For an entrée on the August menu, dubbed Forage, Ponce was inspired by the garnish, which was from Good Witch Farm in Lompoc. “The owner, Jane [Darrah] sent me a photo of her yarrow,” Ponce said. “That took my mind to the forest, and I started creating my Forage dish. I found a company out of New York—Peconic Escargot—that farms and feeds the snails basil and tarragon, which you can taste in the meat. “I slowly poach the snails in our English brown ale then finish in butter. These babies are served on ‘dirt,’ which consists of kalamata olives, cocoa, and panko. I make bread out of pine bark to soak up the butter and add a blend of Mighty Cap mushrooms.” For the pairing, Ponce suggested Dead Oak’s Coastal Cloud Hazy IPA or syrah from Nenow Family Wines in Paso Robles. These beverages balance the dish’s “salt, brine, light herbs, and richness,” she explained. Kaltenberg’s nine rotating taps— including a hard seltzer infused with chefinspired natural flavors—complement Ponce’s seasonal menu. “Jesse’s beers are excellent, and the selection is all over the board,” Ponce said. “I also love using them in my dishes.” Both of the Kaltenbergs have day jobs—Jesse as a civil engineer and Nikki as a finance manager—but beer is their passion. Jesse started brewing as a hobby

in Orange County, then completed the master brewers extension program at UC Davis in 2016 before moving to Atascadero. His repertoire is tasty, but subtle. “For instance, with the stout—which features coffee from adjacent roaster Dark Nectar—I want you to know there’s coffee in there, but not too much,” he said. “My beers are approachable and very specific to pairings. They take a lot longer to produce, but the end experience is really special.” The beverages brace the palate for Ponce’s dishes. “Every sauce she makes is like a flavor explosion,” he added.

CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT NEGATIVE DECLARATION

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY AND INTENT TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION

For the: Open Space Winter Evening Hours of Use Regulations at Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve (City File: EID# 0589-2021) The City of San Luis Obispo has completed an Initial Study/ Negative Declaration (IS/ND) for a proposed Open Space Winter Evening Hours of Use Regulations at Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve. The IS/ND found all potential environmental impacts to be less than significant. The project is located within the 118-acre Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve in the western portion of the City at 1000 Fernandez Road, San Luis Obispo, California 93401. Based on a search of the California Department of Toxic Substance Control’s EnviroStor database, the State Water Resources Control Board’s Geotracker database, and CalEPA’s Cortese List website, there are no hazardous waste cleanup sites within the project site. The project would revise the City’s existing Open Space Regulations (San Luis Obispo Municipal Code, Chapter 12.22) to permanently extend the public use hours on the existing Cerro San Luis Natural Reserve trail system within City property. The hours of use would be extended to between one hour before sunrise until 8:30 PM when daylight savings time is in effect. Public use hours when daylight savings is not in effect would remain from one hour before sunrise until one hour after sunset. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department Ranger Service personnel would provide oversight and additional patrol of the Reserve during the extended hours of use, and information and educational materials specific to nighttime use and wildlife at the Reserve will be provided to the public. A permit program would be permanently implemented to limit access to the Cerro San Luis trail system to 65 individuals during the extended hours. Reference copies of the IS/ND are available at City Hall, 990 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo and on the City’s website at: http:// www.slocity.org/government/department-directory/communitydevelopment/documents-online/environmental-review-documents. If you are unable to access the internet or visit City Hall, please contact Bob Hill at rhill@slocity.org or 805-781-7211 to arrange for an alternative means to view the study.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by con-

LEGAL NOTICES tacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.

If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 855-976-3916, or visit this internet website https:// tracker.auction.com/sb1079/, using the file number assigned to this case T.S.# 9462-4776 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Tell me the most important lesson you’ve learned since 2021 began. Newsletter@freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): “We need to become more unreasonable but in an intelligent way,” says Aries politician Jerry Brown. Yes! I agree! And that’s especially true for you right now, Aries. To Brown’s advice, I will add this message from Aries fashion designer Vivienne Westwood: “Intelligence is composed mostly of imagination, insight—things that have nothing to do with reason.” Here’s one further suggestion to help you take maximum advantage of cosmic rhythms, courtesy of Aries historian Arnold J. Toynbee: “The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.”

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): College student Amelia Hamrick studied the right panel of Hieronymus Bosch’s 15th-century painting The Garden of Earthly Delights. It depicts a hellish scene. Cities are on fire. Weird beasts devour sinful humans. There are demons and torture chambers. Hamrick did what no one in the history of art had ever done: She transcribed the musical score that the artist had written on a man’s naked hindquarters. Her work inspired a composer to create a recording entitled “500-Year-Old Butt Song from Hell.” In the coming weeks, I invite you to perform feats comparable to Hamrick: 1. Explore the past for useful, overlooked clues. 2. Find or create redemptive transformations out of stressful situations. 3. Have fun telling stories about your past misadventures.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “I have become whole and complete, like a thundering cloudburst in summer,” wrote Taurus poet Miklós Radnóti. I love that metaphor for fullness: not an immaculate icon of shiny, sterile perfection, but rather a primal, vigorous force of nature in all of its rumbling glory. I hope you like this symbol as much as I do, and I hope you use it to fuel your creative spirit in the coming weeks. PS: Keep in mind that many indigenous people welcome rainstorms as a source of fertility and growth.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Pandiculation” is a word that refers to when you stretch and yawn at the same time. According to my understanding of the astrological omens, you will benefit from doing a lot of pandiculations in the coming days. I also recommend gazing lazily out the window and looking at the sky a lot. Keep your shoes off as much as possible, get a massage or three, and let yourself sleep more than you customarily do. Did you know that sighing deeply is good for your lungs’ health? Here’s your homework: Dream up all the things you can do to relax and renew yourself. It’s prime time to indulge in generous acts of self-healing.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The ancient Roman author Pliny’s 10-volume Natural History, written in the first century, was a monumental encyclopedia of the natural world, unprecedented in its own time and for centuries afterward. It offered compilations of facts about astronomy, geography, zoology, botany, mineralogy, and many other subjects. There was one big problem with it, however. It contained a great deal of erroneous information. For example, Pliny described in detail many non-existent animals, including dragons, flying horses, and giant serpents that swallowed bulls and snatched birds out of the sky. My reason for telling you this is to inspire you to be extra discerning in the coming weeks. Be especially skeptical of authorities, experts, and other know-it-alls who are very confident despite being inaccurate or erroneous. It’s time for you to increase your trust in your own authority.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “There are those fortunate hours when the world consents to be made into a poem,” writes Leo poet Mark Doty. That’s great for a poet. But what about for everyone else? My variation on Doty’s comment is this: There are fortunate hours when the world consents to be made into a holy revelation or a lyrical breakthrough or a marvelous feeling that changes our lives forever. I expect events like those to come your way at least twice in the immediate future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between 37 and 41 BCE, Virgo-born Caligula served as third Emperor of Rome. To do so, he had to disprove the prophecy of a renowned astrologer, Thrasyllus of Mendes. Years earlier, Thrasyllus had predicted that Caligula, despite being well-connected, “had no more chance of becoming emperor than of riding a horse across the Bay of Baiae”—a distance of 2 miles. Once in power, Caligula arranged to have a series of pontoon boats arrayed across the bay, enabling him to ride his favorite horse Incitatus from one shore to the other across the Bay of Baiae. I foresee the possibility of a comparable turn of events for you, Virgo. Is there a curse you want to undo? A false prophecy you’d like to cancel? Someone’s low expectation you would love to debunk? The coming weeks will be a favorable time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Born on one of the Galapagos Islands, Diego is a giant tortoise who has lived for more than 100 years. He’s a member of the Hood Island species, which had dwindled to a population of 15 by 1977. That’s when he and his tortoise colleague, whose name is E5, became part of a breeding program with 12 female tortoises. E5 was reserved in his behavior, but Diego was a showboat who vocalized loudly as he enjoyed public mating rituals. Together the two males saved their species—producing more than 2,000 offspring in subsequent years. According to my astrological analysis, you could be as metaphorically fertile as Diego and E5 in the coming months—even if you prefer to adopt an approach more akin to E5’s.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The meaning of my existence is that life has addressed a question to me,” wrote psychologist Carl Jung. “Or, conversely, I myself am a question that is addressed to the world, and I must communicate my answer, for otherwise, I am dependent upon the world’s answer.” These are superb meditations for you Sagittarians during the coming weeks. Between now and Oct. 1, I invite you to keep a journal where you write about two subjects: 1. What is the main question that life asks you? 2. What is the main question that your life asks the world?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): North Korea’s Capricorn leader Kim Jongun has an amazing résumé. Official reports say he learned to drive at age 3 and was an accomplished sailor at 9. As an adult, he developed the power to control the weather. He’s a skilled musician and artist, as well as a scientist who developed a miracle drug to cure AIDs, Ebola, cancer, heart disease, and the common cold. Most impressively, Kim is an archaeologist who discovered a lair where magical unicorns live. Is it possible you have unexpressed powers like these, Capricorn? If so, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to identify them and start tapping into their potential. It’s time to develop your dormant talents.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author Toni Morrison testified, “I think of beauty as an absolute necessity. I don’t think it’s a privilege or an indulgence. It’s almost like knowledge, which is to say, it’s what we were born for.” I urge you to adopt her perspective during the next four weeks, Aquarius. In my astrological opinion, a devoted quest for beauty will heal exactly what most needs to be healed in you. It will teach you everything you most need to know.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Poet and translator Anne Carson periodically joins with her husband Robert Currie to teach a workshop called “EgoCircus.” It’s an ironic title, because the subject they teach is the art of collaboration. To develop skills as a collaborator, of course, people must lay aside at least some of their egos’ needs and demands. In accordance with current astrological potentials, I encourage you to stage your own version of EgoCircus in the coming weeks. The time is ripe for you to hone your creative togetherness and synergistic intimacy. ∆
