Safety a major concern for both sides of Morro stacks debate

W

PHOTO COURTESY OF FACTS ABOUT THE STACKS FORUM POWERPOINT

hen the 450-foot-tall stacks in Morro Bay were first constructed in the 1950s and ’60s, the purpose was to vent exhaust flow for the city’s now defunct power plant. But what was once a necessity, perhaps even an eyesore, evolved into an iconic landmark that some Morro Bay residents are fighting to keep. The city held a community forum, dubbed Facts About the Stacks, on Sept. 8 to give residents a chance to hear from the different agencies and stakeholders involved in the structures’ fate. Vistra, an electricity and power generation company that currently owns the property, put it bluntly: “We have never intended to keep them,” Vistra Senior Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy Claudia Morrow said at the meeting. Vistra hopes to use the space to build a battery energy storage facility. But per a memorandum of understanding signed with the city in June, Morro Bay City Council gets the final say on the stacks coming down. If the city decides to take down the stacks, Vistra will be financially responsible and must complete the demolition by the end of 2027. The city must decide whether to keep the stacks by the end of 2022. Morro Bay would then become responsible for ongoing costs like inspections, maintenance, and insurance. And if the city ever changed its mind, it would have to pay for the stacks’ removal. City Manager Scott Collins said at the meeting that the discussion about the stacks’ fate and the future potential uses of the site has been ongoing for the last 20 years, “ever since the previous owners were talking about repowering the plant,” he said. “And then when we got into the position where we knew the plant was going to be decommissioned, there’s been a lot of discussion about what should happen with the plant, and in particular the stacks, since they definitely raise some issues around the iconicness of them and some of the nostalgia around that.” More than 200 community members attended the virtual meeting and were able to ask questions through a moderator via the Zoom chat and email. Some community members raised concerns about the stacks’ structural integrity. Vistra Director of Decommissioning and Demolition Dianna Tickner said the stacks are in good condition and survived the 2003 San Simeon Earthquake. But whether the stacks would

hold up against even stronger seismic events is unknown. Tickner added that, if the city decides to maintain the stacks, Vistra recommends installing custom caps on each structure to protect the interiors, which would come with a hefty price tag for the city of $275,000 per stack. “There’s not any operational purpose for them,” Vistra executive Morrow said. “We recognize that they have a unique value to some of the Morro Bay community. We agreed to give the city time to conduct forums like this so we can share information and what we know about the stacks in that regard.” Morrow emphasized Vistra’s commitment to work with the INSIDE THE STACKS Morro Bay is considering whether to demolish the city if it decides iconic stacks that line the bayfront.

City Manager Collins told New Times after the meeting Collins shared some ideas from the community, that the city expects the stacks discussion to such as turning the stacks into an art come to council in the next couple months.

to Oceano,” a Sept. 13 Grover Beach city staff report said. In a bid to boost COVID-19 resistance, the beach city opened a free testing site for the South County on Sept. 13 at 1336 Ramona Ave. “We continue to communicate to residents the importance of getting vaccinated to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. We’re also working with the county on vaccine outreach to our residents, including the possibility of holding a mobile vaccination site in our community,” City Manager Matthew

The rate of fully vaccinated Grover Beach residents is roughly 10 percent less than the county’s, according to San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department numbers from Sept. 7. “The city’s vaccination rate continues to be below the countywide average and Arroyo Grande and Pismo Beach and roughly equal

Bronson told New Times. According to the Los Angeles Times’ California COVID-19 tracker, 57 Grover Beach residents tested positive for the virus in the two weeks prior to Sept. 14. The city’s status report also mentioned a 13 percent increase over the three-week period prior to Sept. 7. Though Grover Beach showed lower vaccine rates than the county, SLO County as a whole is lagging behind California’s vaccination NEWS continued page 5

numbers. The LA Times tracker showed that 54.9 percent of the county was fully vaccinated by Sept. 14, while the state rate stood at 58.2 percent. An Aug. 31 report on the county’s COVID-19 website stated that most of the county’s positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths occurred in people who weren’t fully vaccinated. Since June 15, they made up almost 80 percent of infections and deaths, and 85.5 percent of hospitalizations. “We’re not in a position to speculate on vaccination hesitancy in our community [Grover Beach] though our vaccination rate continues to increase like elsewhere,” Bronson said. Of the 38 ICU beds available in the SLO County hospitals, 14 are occupied with people who have COVID-19. On Sept. 14, county health officials announced that seven community members aged between 50 and 90 passed away from the disease. It brought the number of COVID-19 associated deaths in SLO to 301. South County makes up 24 percent of countywide cases. “There are no plans to impose a lockdown in Grover Beach or elsewhere in the South County as such restrictions would need to come from the state or county. Our focus as a city is to continue encouraging our community to follow public health guidelines and precautions and support each other in bringing this pandemic to a close,” Bronson said. Until the mobile site appears, residents can get vaccinated in Building B of Grover Beach’s County Public Health office on 286 South St. Vaccinations take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:15 to 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 to 4:15 p.m. For more information, visit recoverslo.org. —Bulbul Rajagopal

Arroyo Grande re-enters Central Coast Blue water project

After months of turmoil and uncertainty, the city of Arroyo Grande is officially back in the Central Coast Blue water project. On Sept. 14, the Arroyo Grande City Council voted unanimously to agree to new terms for the regional groundwater project—reviving its frayed partnership with Pismo Beach and Grover Beach. The new agreement—negotiated by city officials over the summer—reduces Arroyo Grande’s financial commitment to the project and promises that future discussions will take place on project sticking points, like whether to have a local hire provision for construction labor, at joint city council meetings. “Democracy is not for sissies,” Arroyo Grande Mayor Caren Ray Russom said during the meeting. “It’s not been fun, at all. Especially not for staff and the city managers of all three cities. “No, we’re not getting 100 percent of what we asked for,” she added. “But that’s not democracy.” The estimated $85 million Central Coast Blue project, if built, will inject treated wastewater from the three South County cities into the Santa Maria Valley Groundwater Basin to defend against seawater intrusion.

is currently seeking multiple grants to help offset the project’s costs. Under the new agreement forged between the cities, Arroyo Grande would now pay 25 percent of the total project costs compared to 39 percent in the original framework (Arroyo Grande would also only get a quarter of the project benefit). That means Arroyo Grande could spend between and $2.9 million and $12.9 million on the project, depending on how much grant money it’s awarded, according to City Manager Whitney McDonald. “The numbers vary quite a lot,” McDonald said. “Additional grant funding is hoped for and anticipated.” The City Council’s Sept. 14 vote also authorized McDonald to immediately wire $86,000 to Pismo Beach to bring its total project contribution up to match Grover Beach’s, at $210,000. “I think that’s fair and reasonable,” Councilmember Jimmy Paulding said. In June, the Arroyo Grande City Council directed its staff to “not pay another penny” toward the project unless a new agreement was negotiated. In addition to lower costs and a promise of future meetings, the partner cities agreed to form a joint powers authority once construction is complete to govern the project’s operation. All five Arroyo Grande council members voiced their support for the new terms. The council previously raised issues about shared governance. While under the agreement, Pismo Beach still retains its status as the lead agency, Arroyo Grande council members said they’d have more input overall. “The project is much more what we had in mind,” Councilmember Kristen Barneich said. “There’s still a lot more work to do. But we’re a lot closer. —Peter Johnson

Avila Pier makeover to start in early 2022 The Port San Luis Harbor District recently won California Coastal Commission approval to begin the muchawaited rehabilitation of the Avila Beach Pier. On Sept. 9, the commission approved the permit allowing Port San Luis to begin pier renovations after it turns in the final repair plans. Harbor Facilities Manager Chris Munson said they aim to start repairs early next year, but weather is their biggest obstacle. “When work begins in the spring, our

hope is that the majority of the work should be completed within 2022, but pier construction is impacted by a number of variables such as storms, tides, swells, and wind; not to mention the material and labor shortages we are currently experiencing,” Munson told New Times. The Avila Beach pier closed in 2015 due to heavy storms and frequent public use. Since then, it’s been partially reopened, but much of its sea-facing side is still offlimits. Earlier this summer, the harbor district received more than half the necessary funds for rehabilitation when the Wildlife Conservation Board awarded $1.25 million to the project. The harbor district also got additional funds from the Coastal Conservancy, the Avila Beach Community Fund, and the Friends of Avila Pier nonprofit. Munson said that they are anticipating $200,000 from a Division of Boating and Waterways grant that would help repair the boat landing section. If it comes through, the port would have almost $2 million in total at their disposal. “Donation[s] are still very much needed as they will help ensure a more complete rehabilitation, which will extend the life of the pier,” Munson said. Initially, Port San Luis had 10 months to complete the process once they started it. But Interim Harbor Manager John D’Ornellas said that the district received a recent extension that’s an informal deadline. The postponement took into account that pier repairs will almost be an ongoing necessity. “We are going to be constantly repairing the pier. That’s the only way to keep it continually open. It’s essentially a never-ending project,” D’Ornellas said. Repair experts are taking accessibility for disabled visitors into account too. One way they’re aiming to do this is by replacing all of the deck boards on the stem of the pier. This would close the wide gaps that have formed between the existing planks. “The gaps in the planks were intentional in an attempt to dissipate upward force from winter waves hitting the pier from underneath. When the engineer assessed the pier, they noted that while the gaps might help this a little, they were not necessary. We are also looking to modify the placement of utility lines, which will help clear the path of travel along the railings,” Munson said. The district expects that wildlife activity increased around the closed

After Dayspring’s quiet exit, Natural Healing Center can still open its dispensary in SLO, but there’s a deadline

A

bout a year before Helios Dayspring would plead guilty to felony charges of bribery and tax evasion, an attorney for the cannabis businessman sent an email to San Luis Obispo city officials. “Please be advised that Helios Dayspring has sold his interest in NHCSLO, LLC, to Valnette Garcia,” attorney Paul Ready wrote on Sept. 9, 2020, referring to Dayspring’s dispensary, Natural Healing Center. “If you have any questions about the transaction, please feel free to give me a call at your first convenience.” At the time, the FBI was investigating Dayspring for bribing local government officials and underreporting millions of dollars in personal income—alleged crimes that Dayspring would later surrender to in July 2021. Dayspring had acknowledged that investigation in court records available last fall, in the context of a lawsuit from his top investor, a former federal official, who called the Morro Bay cannabis magnate who’d ascended to the top of the SLO County industry an “unscrupulous con man.” But, according to SLO City Attorney Christine Dietrick, those were just allegations back in September 2020. When presented with Dayspring’s ownership transfer notice last year, the city simply had an ordinance to follow. “Allegations in a private civil action typically wouldn’t be something we’re even following,” Dietrick told New Times. “We take our cues from investigatory agencies with the authority to enforce.” Dayspring’s exits from his three SLO County cannabis dispensaries in SLO, Grover Beach, and Morro Bay occurred between September 2020 and July 2021, all prior to the FBI and Department of Justice unveiling his plea deal that levies a maximum prison sentence of 13 years. When the public turned to city officials for answers as to why Dayspring’s dispensaries could continue to operate and occupy three of the limited number of cannabis storefront permits available in local cities, all three city managers cited the fact that Dayspring was no longer involved in those businesses. “We are currently carefully reviewing Natural Healing Center’s permit applications, documents, and statements that involved him. To our knowledge, he has no current interest in any permitted cannabis businesses in SLO,” SLO City Manager Derek Johnson told media outlets. “Mr. Dayspring is currently not affiliated with the Natural Healing Center-Grover Beach business, as he is neither an employee nor owner of the company,” Grover Beach City Manager Matt Bronson also said. To understand how Dayspring extricated himself from the company he founded, and how the company continues to have a shot at opening a coveted dispensary in SLO city, New Times reviewed city documents and talked to officials.

‘Not that complicated’

Since SLO city adopted its cannabis regulations in 2018, it’s received four requests for cannabis business ownership transfers. Dayspring’s was the first—and the only one to get approved thus far, NOT OPEN Natural Healing Dispensary, according to records. Helios Dayspring’s former company, must open its doors in SLO (pictured) “The first one wasn’t that complicated,” before Oct. 22, or risk losing its permit, Dietrick said. according to city officials. SLO’s cannabis ordinance has a short section outlining rules for the sale or under different scenarios, including transfer of a permit. It outlines “general paying between $4,700 and $9,800 in fees parameters” for cannabis business to cover the city’s review. The only type owners seeking ownership changes, of transfer exempted from any review, or Dietrick said. approval, is an internal transfer, such as Those parameters include a Dayspring and Garcia’s. requirement to notify the city about the transfer, and then potentially submit to fees, background checks, and other Shifting deadlines requirements for approval if the proposed When a cannabis business receives a new owner isn’t an already-permitted permit from the city of SLO to operate, it cannabis operator in the city. has exactly one year from that date to open In Dayspring’s case, he passed off all its doors, according to the city ordinance. 88 percent of his share of the dispensary Natural Healing Center received its to Garcia, who already had a 3 percent permit for a dispensary in SLO on Oct. stake in the company.

An endless cycle Property thefts in SLO are rising in 2021, returning to pre-pandemic levels

W

ith California remaining open in spite of rising COVID-19 cases across the country, local police data indicates that crime is returning to pre-pandemic levels. Though complaints of property theft decreased in 2020 compared to 2019 and the years prior, it has increased so far in 2021. Reports of property theft in the city of San Luis Obispo rose by almost 10 percent from Jan. 1 to Aug. 31 compared to the same period in 2020, according to statistics from the SLO Police Department. “COVID had a significant impact, as the community’s daily life patterns were altered significantly from people working from home and/or sheltering. More activity and presence at home reduces the ability for criminals to commit crimes of opportunity,” Police Chief Rick Scott said. Now the number of property theft reports for the first half of the year is similar to the same time in 2019. Though portable electronics frequently get stolen, catalytic converters from cars appear to be the item of choice. Ever since the pandemic took center stage in 2020, thefts of catalytic converters increased not only in SLO but also all over the U.S. On Sept. 8, the SLO Police Department announced that 137 catalytic converters had been stolen since January. “Cat. [catalytic converter] theft has exploded across the country for the precious metals they contain, so we are continuing to alert our community of these crimes of opportunity,” Scott said. Kean McCabe of Los Osos experienced that trend up close and personal when the catalytic converter on his fiancée’s Prius got ripped off over the summer. His sister’s converter was stolen the day before. Together, the siblings lost roughly $5,000. “It was hurtful to me when I realized someone stole it out of our car and put us behind [financially]. Someone is so low to take someone [else’s] livelihood—a vehicle is what you take to work, to go to the grocery store to put food on the table,” McCabe said. He filed a report with the SLO County Sheriff’s Office. He said no one reached out to him after he gave details. Christopher Flint, who works at a Toyota dealership in the city of SLO, said that his workplace saw a “huge jump” in calls about theft over Labor Day weekend. “On Monday [Sept. 6] alone, I received about 10 calls for cat. converters. And continuing throughout the week so far,” Flint told New Times via email. Flint said that some of his customers were “back-to-back” victims of catalytic converter thefts. “The thefts have come in waves,” he said. SLO Police Chief Scott said that curbing repeat offenses was tough because of California’s “zero bail” policy that SLO County still observes, though the state’s Judicial Council rescinded the

Reckless action Shame on three Cayucos school board members

I

wish to thank Kathe Tanner for her reporting on the Cayucos Elementary School District board in her Sept. 9, 2021, article, “SLO County school district rescinds ‘Let Them Breathe’ resolution opposing face masks.” This article was published in both The Tribune and The Cambrian. As reported on, during the Sept. 8, 2021, Cayucos Elementary school board meeting, board member Susan Brownell claimed that she had received, “demeaning, false accusations threatening us” in written correspondence to the board that was included as a part of the public record. I was surprised to learn of this and curious as to her claim, so I did as she suggested during the meeting and viewed all of the correspondence included as a part of the Sept. 8, 2021, school board meeting agenda, which she reminded us would “be archived forever.” Not surprisingly, there were exactly zero “demeaning, false accusations” threatening Mrs. Brownell or any other school board member. I am extremely disappointed, albeit not surprised, that she would attempt to divert attention away from her own abhorrent behavior by making false accusations against those who respectfully spoke out. Additionally, it was of interest that board member Steve Geil and Mrs. Brownell attempted to gaslight attendees at the Sept. 8, 2021, school board meeting by claiming that they hadn’t originally interpreted the “Let Them Breathe” resolution as being a political statement, but rather an issue of local control. Given the fact that this resolution was cut

HODIN

and pasted from a politically motivated website by the parent who submitted it to the school board, and given the current politicalization throughout our country around mask wearing, claiming that they were “unaware” that this resolution was political in nature means either one of two things: 1. They did not first read the “Let Them Breathe” resolution before voting on it, or 2. They are incompetent. Board member Geil’s insistence that: “The kids wear masks indoors. The school is being run exactly the way it’s required to be run,” is inaccurate. Several parents have submitted written complaints to school administrators reporting their observations and concerns about teachers not wearing masks indoors and not enforcing student mask compliance. However, this would not be the first time Mr. Geil was misinformed. During the Aug. 4, 2021, school board meeting, he stated, “Kids don’t get COVID.” This was the same meeting in which he voted to pass the “Let Them Breathe” resolution. Lastly, I wish to reiterate that it is truly devastating that the reckless actions of the three school board members who voted “yes” on the “Let Them Breathe” resolution caused the resignation of our amazing librarian and science teacher, Jake Rideout. Shame on these three board members for using our public school board as a platform to advance their personal politics. Erika Torres writes to New Times from Cayucos.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY ANDREW CHRISTIE

CCE’s long journey

T

here are three things you need to know about the revolution in the way energy is produced and distributed in California after Assembly Bill 117 was voted into law in 2002. First, community choice aggregation (CCA) became the best tool available to California communities to ramp up local, renewable energy and cut greenhouse gas emissions. Second, it is a threat to the energy monopoly previously enjoyed by the energy utilities, and they have responded accordingly. Third, it never would have come to our neck of the woods without a sustained effort by lots of folks keen on overturning the status quo. Four years after the passage of AB 117, with nothing happening in SLO County, the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club decided to get community choice energy on the local radar. With SLO Green Build, ECOSLO, the Cal Poly College of Architecture, former county Supervisor Jim Patterson, the SLO Chamber of Commerce, Home Builders Association, Coast National Bank, and Air Pollution Control District, we engaged in six months of event planning. The resulting Smart Energy Solutions Summit was the coming-out party for community choice in SLO. More than 300 people filled the Vets Hall to hear our keynote speaker, Paul Fenn, the author of California’s CCA law, say that “CCA would not just be good for the environment, this would probably be the best thing to happen to the environment in this community in the last hundred years.” The Public Citizen rep from Texas said: “CCA means you can create your own power company, owned by the community. Suddenly you can make dramatically different choices.” The Community Environmental Council rep from Santa Barbara affirmed that it’s “as close to a silver bullet as we have.” In 2007, we followed up with a regional energy planning meeting at Cal Poly with more than 100 local elected officials, planners, city managers, and community leaders. CCA was at the center of the discussion. In his address, Alex Hinds, community development director for Marin County and former planning director for SLO County, said, “CCA is the most promising thing we have in Marin to really increase our use of renewables.” Meanwhile, the sustainability clubs on the Cal Poly campus got together to create the Empower Poly Coalition with the goal of establishing Cal Poly as a state university leader in clean energy and green building. In 2008, the Sierra Club contracted with Paul Fenn’s Local Power, which agreed to hire on several Empower Poly interns and loan them to us, which meant we got to hold four energy town halls in six months, all over the county, to get the word out on local energy. At the final town hall, held in Grover Beach in the summer of 2009, we brought down Dave Erickson, technical director of the Sonoma Climate Action Plan, for a week of meetings with city planners and managers to drive home the concept of CCA, face to face. His take-home message: “We’re using community choice to achieve the nation’s most ambitious greenhouse gas reduction, but Sonoma could just as easily have called our

climate action plan a jobs plan, or a green economic recovery plan, or an energy independence plan.” In 2010, when the county was updating its general plan, the Sierra Club submitted the text that became Policy E 1.2: “Assert more local control of energy decisions and sources” and “evaluate community choice aggregation to determine whether community choice would be a cost-effective and low-risk strategy to increase use of renewable energy, and realize a low-carbon, local energy portfolio.” In October 2011, Bill McKibben of 350.org came to town and electrified (see what I did there?) a crowd at the Fremont Theater. Afterward, SLO Transition Towns convened focus groups to discuss how we could do our part in helping meet the challenge of climate change in each of the areas McKibben addressed. The Transition Towns group on energy became the SLO Clean Energy Economy Coalition—which, through several name changes and morphing memberships, focused like a laser beam on bringing a community choice energy program to San Luis Obispo County. That laser-like focus resulted in membership in our regional community choice energy program for everyone in San Luis Obispo County, with two exceptions: the city of Atascadero and the unincorporated areas of the county, thanks to a majority sitting on that City Council and the county Board of Supervisors who have consistently declined to join the rest of the state in its energy future and withheld the benefits of community choice from their constituents. And what, you may ask, are those benefits that you are (or are not but could be) receiving, depending on your location? Glad you asked. Sign up to virtually attend the general meeting of the Sierra Club’s Santa Lucia Chapter on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m., featuring Oswaldo Martinez, energy public engagement associate for Central Coast Community Energy (3CE), for the lowdown on their service offerings, updates on energy programs, energy data tools, events and resources, and answers to all your questions.

The Shredder

Sensitivity trigger

A

s North SLO County residents sweated in their hot, dark houses multiple times over the past couple of weeks wondering what the hell was up with the power they weren’t getting, PG&E was flying helicopters over their transmission lines desperately trying to figure out what the problem was. Turns out, it was all just a silly overreaction—or several overreactions all in a row. PG&E spokesperson Eric Daniels spoke to the SLO County Board of Supervisors about the issue on Sept. 14, telling them that the utility’s new wildfire prevention feature was shutting down power in certain areas of the county because it was too sensitive. Customers, though, received no such information from the embattled utility about their power problems. A text message alert that said something more than, “Whoopsies! Your power’s out! We don’t know why or when it will be restored (shrug emoji) … ” would be nice! But it is PG&E, so what do we expect? Customer service? Called “fast trip,” like a gas station convenience store where you can pop in and pop out with the unhealthy snack of your choice, it automatically shuts off power when a foreign object is detected in the power lines— popping off your power for the foreseeable future as the utility casually inspects the entire circuit to make sure nothing’s awry before turning the lights back on.

“This process takes time,” Daniels said. Apparently, it takes a loooong time. Thousands of residents were without power for full days because the transmission lines along Highways 58, 46, and 41 were dealing with foreign objects on a somewhat regular basis, and the fast trips on those lines needed a wee bit of an attitude adjustment. “What we’re finding is that they’re overreacting,” Daniels said. Oh really? You power lines need to calm the F down! You know, like people in the Bible Belt who freak out about immigrants coming to the U.S. to legally work on temporary visas. Or like a California Men’s Colony correctional officer who allegedly beat up a Wells Fargo employee in Grover Beach, calling him racial slurs, for asking the officer to wear a mask in accordance with San Luis Obispo County public health mandates! Calm it on down people! This officer was so pissed that he went back to the bank that evening to try to beat the employee up in the bank’s parking lot, according to The Tribune’s reporting. The Grover Beach Police Department arrested the man on Sept. 14, 11 days after the incident, according to a press release posted on the department’s Facebook page. All of this because the guy didn’t want to wear a mask in a private business! What level of overreaction do you have to operate at to do something like that? Is it FACEBOOK COMMENT IN ALL CAPS

Crown new guitar king Gary Clark Jr. plays Avila Beach

PHOTO COURTESY OF GARY CLARK JR.

JIMI JUNIOR Gary Clark Jr.’s guitar work has been compared to everyone from Clapton to Hendrix, and on Sept. 17, he’ll play the Avila Beach Golf Resort.

F

our-time Grammy-winning musician Gary Clark Jr. is—in my book—a gritty, ultra cool retro bluesman and guitar star fusing old genres like blues, rock, and soul with elements of hip-hop. He has the same sort of juju Ben Harper had when he first came out of the gate. He embraces tradition but brings something new to it, too. Clark, who hails from Texas music mecca Austin, began his recording career in 2001 working largely under the radar. He eventually signed to Warner Bros. Records a decade ago and came out with The Bright Lights EP, following in 2012 with his Warner Bros. full length, Blak and Blu, which finally saw Clark hitting the record charts. The Story of Sonny Boy Slim followed in 2015, and his most recent, 2019’s This Land, has cemented his reputation as a potent songwriter. That most recent album was inspired by a series of racist questions about his ownership of a 50-acre Texas horse ranch from one of his neighbors. This Friday, Sept. 17, Clark will play the Avila Beach Golf Resort (6:30 p.m.; all ages; $40 general at tixr.com/groups/ goodvibezpresents/events/gary-clarkjr-25571). His guitar work has been compared to Hendrix and Clapton, and his stage charisma to Jack White, John Mayer, and Prince, but you’ll also find elements of Muddy Waters, Childish Gambino, and Marvin Gaye. Clark’s taken it all in and has released it with his own signature sound. “I kind of got introduced to everything by watching Austin City Limits, which had Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray,” Clark explained in press materials. “It all kind of hit me at once, and I just loved anything that sounded bluesy or rock ’n’ roll that felt dangerous and had loud guitar solos up front. Ultimately, I figured out where it all came from, and I think the thing that really resonated with me was guys like Albert King and Freddie King—the three Kings,” along with B.B. All hail King Clark! The fourth king! Want to see Clark but you don’t have $40 to throw down? Do you still need your vaccination? Then check out Shots for Shows, which is offering free tickets for live music if you get your vaccination this Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Fremont Theater (4 to 8 p.m.). The Fremont Theater Entertainment Group LLC, operators of the Fremont Theater are teaming up with SLO County Public Health and will be offering free tickets to Avila Beach Resort and Fremont Theater shows as incentives to all who come to the Fremont Theater that day for on-site immunizations for COVID-19. There will be a variety of tickets to choose from, distributed on a first-come, first-

served basis. All immunizations will be managed and under the supervision of SLO County Public Health. In addition to Gary Clark Jr., tickets to Chicano Batman, Dawes, Postmodern Jukebox, Pennywise, The Expendables, Reckless Kelly, Brett Young, Metalachi, and Lanco will be available while supplies last. Ticket choice will be on a first-come, first-served basis (come early for the widest selection) and no exchanges or refunds will be given. In the event of a show canceling, no new tickets will be issued. And speaking of the Fremont, singersongwriter and guitarist Tab Benoit plays a swampland jam on Tuesday, Sept. 21 (9 p.m.; all ages; $28 to $38 at fremontslo. com) with Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Johnny Sansone, and Waylon Thibodeaux. Grammy-nominated Benoit has enjoyed a remarkable 30-plus year career as a soulful Delta swamp bluesman. This one’s going to sizzle!

Vina Robles Amphitheatre has two hot shows this week starting on Saturday, Sept. 18, with The Beach Boys (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $54.50 to $104.50 at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). Just to be clear, this version of The Beach Boys doesn’t include Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, or David Marks, but it does include band co-founder and lyricist Mike Love, “who, along with longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher, and Randy Leago continue the legacy of the iconic band,” according to press materials. Expect songs like “Surfin’,” “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music,” and “Kokomo.” St. Vincent plays Vina Robles as part of her Daddy’s Home World Tour on Wednesday, Sept. 22 (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $39.50 to $55 at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com), with Spoon opening.

Formed in San Francisco in 2002 by Andy Cabic and Otto Hauser, the folk band features Cabic’s songwriting, which is “shaped and sustained by divergent tangents,” according to press materials. “If he’s not crafting a melancholy folk rock diamond in his Northern California studio, he’s moving a dance floor with bossa nova and house DJ sets, or helping curate a compilation of Japanese city pop.”

ocal dancers and actors of all ages and skill levels are invited to “flex their muscles and point their toes” at a brandnew Grover Beach studio, FLEX Performing Arts, which celebrated its grand opening at the end of August. It was important for the studio’s co-owner and artistic director Brianna Deveraux-Allen, a frequent choreographer for Allan Hancock College’s dance department and the Coastal Performing Arts Foundation, to label FLEX as “a performing arts studio and not just a dance studio,” she explained. “I want theater to have a big presence at FLEX, mostly because I’ve seen firsthand the positive impact it can have on young people, especially in terms of confidence,” DeverauxAllen said. “Not to mention it is just so much fun.” Deveraux-Allen became passionate about theater while choreographing several musicals over the past five years, but her original forte was choreographing concert-style dance pieces for shows like Hancock’s Dance Spectrum and Dimensions in Dance (both traditionally held at the Marian Theatre in Santa Maria). “I’ve always loved working on the Hancock shows. They always have such a fun, positive energy, and the cast for each concert always ends up feeling like a family,” Deveraux-Allen said. “I’ve danced in and choreographed for several of their biannual concerts. That was how I initially met a few of the instructors that are now working at FLEX.” The résumés of current FLEX staffers

ig wave surfing pioneer Garrett McNamara leads us on a journey through this six-part documentary series that details his decadeslong quest to find and ride the world’s largest surfable wave, hoping to find a monster that is 100 feet or higher. His wife and manager, Nicole, is always by his side, and the two soon discover an unknown and treacherous big wave surf spot in Nazaré, Portugal. What was a small fishing town is now the site of huge tow-surfing events and competitions each year. Through near death and varied injuries, Garrett’s quest is one most people would never fathom or would quickly give up on, but McNamara is clearly wired differently—as are many of the surfers featured in the series. If you’ve ever gotten caught in “the washing

machine” while surfing, you know how frightening and disorienting it can be. Now amp that up to waves that can quite literally wipe you away never to be seen again, and you get the idea of what type of adrenaline-fueled athletes stay in the game of big wave surfing. There are many interviews with his fellow friends and surfers as they chase the dream as well. We also learn some of what it looks like to be a professional athlete in this sport, how your ability to make money, buy equipment, and so on relies on sponsorship, and how fickle that world can be. Breathtakingly shot and with plenty of beautiful footage both from in the water and out, this series isn’t just for the surfers out there. This is much more a story of a man, his focused vision, and the world he built and invented to make his dreams a reality. (six approximately 55-min. episodes) —Anna

Salute to scarecrows Fall festival draws thousands to Cambria for a visual and culinary feast

PHOTO COURTESY OF CAMBRIA SCARECROW FESTIVAL

PHOTO COURTESY OF ROBIN’S RESTAURANT

1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) unsalted butter 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice (recipe below) 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups roasted pepita seeds 2 cups granulated sugar

Generously spray or butter—or place a nonstick mat on—a large baking sheet. In a saucepan, melt butter on low heat and add salt, pumpkin spice, vanilla, and pepita seeds to evenly coat the seeds with butter mixture. Keep stove on the lowest heat, stirring occasionally so seeds don’t burn. Add sugar to a heavy skillet on medium heat. Stir sugar constantly with a rubber spatula, scraping the skillet bottom as you stir. The sugar will combine into clumps before melting into an amber syrup. As the last lumps melt into the syrup, remove the skillet from heat. With the spatula, add the syrup to the seed mixture. Working quickly, pour the syrup/seed mixture onto the baking sheet. Cool completely and break into pieces to garnish your fall desserts. Store in an airtight container. Brittle will last for two weeks.

T

he picturesque town of Cambria, with fewer than 6,000 residents, will see its population explode in October. Tens of thousands of tourists— and 400 scarecrows—will descend upon the seaside village starting Oct. 1 to partake in its 13th annual Scarecrow Festival, culminating in a culinary feast at Cambria Nursery and Florist on Oct. 30. Salute to Scarecrows! A Starlit Celebration of Cambria will feature fare from an exclusive sampling of Cambria’s 30-plus restaurants, according to Paulla Ufferheide, president of the Cambria Scarecrow Festival. The selected eateries include veteran establishments Robin’s Restaurant, Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill, Cambria Pines Lodge Restaurant, Linn’s Restaurant, and Madeline’s Restaurant. Guests will also enjoy wine, beer, and cider tastings from Cutruzzola Vineyards, 927 Beer Company, Bassetti Vineyards, Black Hand Cellars, Cayucos Cellars, Daou Family Estates, Harmony Cellars, Moonstone Cellars, and Stolo Family Vineyards. The festival debuted in 2009 with 30 scarecrows, Ufferheide explained. It expanded from a one-weekend event at the Cambria Historical Museum to this year’s month-long extravaganza encompassing the entire town—and even the neighboring villages of San Simeon and Harmony. The Oct. 30 event finale—for which masks are encouraged, as well as COVID-19 vaccination, and distancing by volunteers and guests—serves a dual purpose of providing a safe night of outdoor entertainment, while benefiting

Cambria Scarecrow Festival, a registered charitable organization. Tickets are limited to 150 and can be purchased via its website. An additional 50 tickets will be provided to sponsors. “The festival came about because October was a very slow month for businesses in Cambria,” Ufferheide said. “Now the businesses tell us that October is one of the busiest months of the year for them. We have heard from hoteliers that say they are already booked up in October.” Local restaurateurs and vintners fully embrace the increased tourist numbers by simultaneously launching fall menus and new vintages. Robin’s Restaurant plans to drop its fall menu shortly, according to Shanny Covey, the eatery’s co-owner and general manager. Covey also co-owns San Luis Obispo restaurants Novo, Luna Red, and Mint + Craft along with business partner Robin Covey.

PUMPKIN PERFECTION Cinnamon whipped cream and brown butter caramel sauce complement Robin’s Restaurant’s seasonal pumpkin cheesecake. The pièce de résistance is its pepita brittle garnish (see recipe, right).

Established in 1985, Robin’s is one of the oldest, most highly rated restaurants in Cambria. At the Oct. 30 event, the eatery will be dishing up pumpkin-apple samosas spiced with garam masala and mint chutney. Patrons visiting the restaurant throughout October can enjoy its seasonal dessert specialty—pumpkin cheesecake with pepita brittle. “We look forward to participating in the annual Scarecrow Festival once again because it brings smiles and joy to our locals and visitors,” Covey said. “The creativity that arises from this festival is amazing, and it’s so much fun to see what has been cooked up in the minds and hands of our local artists.” Another landmark Cambria restaurant, Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill, will be dishing up its iconic house-made New England-style clam chowder at the event.

Pumpkin spice: 3 ounces ground cinnamon 3/4 ounce ground ginger 3/4 ounce ground nutmeg 1/2 ounce ground allspice 1/2 ounce ground cloves Combine ingredients in a sealed container, and shake before use. Save the remainder until spring for “some powerful pumpkin spice” for fall and winter desserts, according to Robin’s Restaurant pastry chef Jake Schoomaker.

In business since 1993, Moonstone’s boasts a “tried-and-true, seafoodinspired menu,” according to proprietor John MacKinnon. While the chowder is definitely a fan favorite, “we like to call every dish a signature dish,” he said. “They’ve been honed over the past 28 years.” More than half of the menu features fresh seafood, but steak, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, and vegetarian options abound as well. Last year, in response to the pandemic, the eatery consolidated its most popular lunch and dinner options onto a single menu, which MacKinnon says benefits the restaurant, but also appeals to guests. However, he adds, the restaurant’s biggest draw remains its idyllic setting. “Our restaurant has an unbeatable FLAVOR continued page 28

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 contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-280-2832 or visit this internet website, www.auction.com, using the file number assigned to this case T.S.# 9462-4776. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. 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

LEGAL NOTICES 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 why you HAD to do the thing that some people question or misunderstand. Newsletter@freewillastrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Books are mirrors: You only see in them what you already have inside you,” wrote author Carlos Zafòn Ruiz. Let’s take that a step further: “Other people are mirrors: You only see in them what you already have inside you.” And even further. “The whole world is a mirror: You only see in it what you already have inside you.” Have fun playing with these meditations, Aries. The coming weeks will be a fertile time to explore how thoroughly your experiences reflect the activity transpiring in your own brain.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Some spiritual teachers say things like “I am not my body” or “This body is not me.” I don’t understand that. It’s an insult and disparagement. It’s dismissive of our bodies’ sublime beauty and our bodies’ inspired role in educating our souls. I agree that we are not only our bodies. I agree that a part of us is eternal, not confined to flesh and blood. But hell yes, I am my body. You are your body. It’s a glorious aspect of who we are. It’s a miraculous creation that has taken millions of years to evolve into the masterpiece it is. So yes, you are your body, and yes, this body is you. I hope you love your body. Are in awe of it. Are pleased to be inside it. If anything is lacking in this department, now is an excellent time to make corrections.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I know someone who kisses the way a flower opens,” wrote poet Mary Oliver. I’d love for you Geminis to have that experience. The astrological omens suggest it’s more likely than usual to occur sometime soon. Other experiences with a better-than-average chance of unfolding in the coming days: allies who speak of intimate subjects in ways that resemble a flower opening; partners who co-create with you in ways that resemble a flower opening; spiritual helpers who offer guidance and help in ways that resemble a flower opening.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “I lie to myself all the time, but I never believe me,” writes Cancerian author S. E. Hinton. Ha! As a Cancerian myself, I confess to the same crime. But I am looking forward to a shift in the coming weeks. I suspect we Crabs will be inspired to cut way back on the fibs we try to get away with. You know what that means, right? We’ll be more inclined to trust ourselves, since we’ll be more likely to tell ourselves the truth. Our decisions will be shrewd, and our self-care will be rigorous. Hallelujah!

LEO

@NewTimesSLO #NewTimesSLO

(July 23-Aug. 22): My object in this horoscope is to stimulate your imagination in ways nobody else in your life will. You need an influence like me, from outside your inner circle, to administer friendly, playful shocks to jolt you out of habitual ways of thinking. Here we go. 1. If you were to stow seven parts of your soul in seven objects, what objects would they be? 2. If you could change one thing about your past, what would it be? 3. If you were a character in a fairy tale or a movie, who would you be? 4. If you could travel to a place that would teach you what you most need to know, where would it be? 5. If you had a magical animal as your special ally, what animal would it be? 6. If you could sing a song with uncanny healing power for someone you care about, what song would it be? 7. If you could improve your relationship with some part of your body, what would it be?

LEGAL NOTICES

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “There’s nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over,” writes Virgo author Gail Carson Levine. Adding to that encouragement, I offer you the following authorizations: There’s nothing wrong with seeking a pleasure you love over and over; or doing a necessary task you love over and over; or performing an energizing ritual you love over and over; or expressing key truths you love over and over. And these permissions will be especially crucial for you to exult in during the coming weeks, dear Virgo: because it’s a time when mindful repetition will be one of your strengths and a key to stimulating the deepening experiences you need.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “If I’m a bitch and a fake, is there nobody who will love a bitch and a fake?” Libra author Graham Greene wrote that in his novel The End of the Affair. Here’s my extrapolation: I believe that every one of us, including me, is a bitch and a fake now and then. We all go through periods when we are not at our best, when we fail to live up to our own high standards. Is it possible that you have recently flirted with such a phase? If so, the cosmos has authorized me to absolve you. You are free you to reclaim your full exquisite beauty. And if you haven’t been a bitch and a fake, congratulations. It means you have weathered a gnarly storm.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Poet Yves Olade writes, “I’ve started thinking of people as wounds that don’t heal.” To me, that idea is idiotically cynical. Moreover, I think it’s wrong for most of us. The truth is, humans have a natural instinct for healing. They are predisposed to attract experiences that might aid their recovery from difficulties—that might teach them the healing lessons they need. I believe this will be especially true for you in the coming weeks. (PS: Dr. Andrew Weil writes, “Any level of biological organization that we examine, from DNA up to the most complex body systems, shows the capacity for selfdiagnosis, for removal of damaged structure, and for regeneration of new structure.”)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Research suggests that most people think everyone else has more fun than they do. But I’m guessing that only a small percentage of Sagittarians feel that way. You tend to be extra alert for fun, and you have intuitive skill at tracking down fun. In addition, you often take the initiative to precipitate fun. You understand you have a responsibility to generate fun, and you have a talent for generating it. All these capacities will serve you well in the coming weeks. I recommend you raise your mastery of the art and science of having fun to a new level. Be the Champion of Fun and Games for your entire circle.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I’m not engaging in empty flattery when I say that you are unlike anyone else who has ever lived in the history of the world. Your absolute uniqueness is a fundamental fact. Maybe you don’t reflect on this truth very often. Perhaps you feel that it’s not helpful to think about or that it’s irrelevant to your daily decision-making. But I propose that in the next three weeks, you give it a central place in your understanding of your destiny. Allow it to influence everything you do. Make it a major factor in your decision-making.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Welcome back from the underworld, Aquarius. I hope your time wandering through the mazelike twilight brought you as many fascinating mysteries as confusing questions. I trust you took advantage of the smoky riddles and arresting dilemmas to fortify your soul’s wisdom. I suspect that although your travels may have at times seemed hard to fathom, they have provided you with a superb education that will serve you well in the immediate future.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, the lead character says to a friend, “You filled me with a wild desire to know everything about life.” Is there a person who might inspire you like that, Pisces? Maybe a person from your past with whom you’ve fallen out of touch? Or is there a person hovering on the outskirts of your life who could stimulate you to have such feelings? Now is a favorable time to seek these influences. I advise you to be bold in your quest to associate with allies who will stimulate your lust for life and teach you crucial lessons. (PS: For extra credit, make abundant use of another theme from Wilde’s book: “The search for beauty is the real secret of life.”) ∆
