Shandon farmworker housing project— largest in recent history—gets approval

T

FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

he largest farmworker housing project in recent San Luis Obispo County history got the greenlight from a county hearing officer on Sept. 17—paving the way for development on Shandon farmland that could house up to 240 laborers. Brodiaea Inc.—a Harvard Management Company subsidiary—filed the project application with the county in 2018. The company wants to build 18 modular-style bunks and support structures on its 5,600 acres of vineyards near Shandon. Matt Turrentine, a local agent for Brodiaea, said that the quarters could serve both his workers and potentially other area workers as well, citing a shortage of farmworker housing throughout SLO County. “As we look to the future, there’s definitely a need in ag areas for some dedicated farmworker housing. We thought that this is a pretty lowimpact, and logical and efficient, location,” Turrentine said. The 8 acres of housing would be positioned about 4 miles south of Shandon, on Shell Creek Road. Currently, most field laborers in North County commute to the area from surrounding communities, Turrentine said. “Unquestionably, there’s a lot of farmworker labor in Paso Robles that comes from Santa Maria, or King City, or over in the Central Valley. It’s certainly a problem,” he said. According to a county staff report, Brodiaea will develop the project in six phases—with each phase involving three new structures: two sleeping quarters (with 20 people per quarter) and a building with showers, restrooms, storage space, and a kitchen. Under the conditions of its minor use permit, Brodiaea is also required to include a 60-space parking lot, connect its buildings to domestic water tanks, build a septic and leach field, and install an emergency fire water tank, among other conditions.

The Shandon Advisory Council, which represents the community of Shandon to the county, is opposed to the project as proposed. In an April 2019 letter to the county, the Shandon Advisory Council wrote that the addition of 240 farmworkers to the community represented a 20 percent increase to its 1,200-resident population, which could overstress medical, law enforcement, and fire services. Those services are “inadequate to the current population,” the council said. The council also expressed concerns that MORE HOUSING The largest farmworker housing project in recent Brodiaea may not be using SLO County history was approved on Sept. 17.

Grand View Apartments’ former tenants settle lawsuit for $4 million

other poor living conditions. Previous New Times reporting detailed that tenants often had to pay for the repairs themselves. The lawsuit also alleged that the owners and the property manager had a habit of failing and refusing to return security deposits even after their tenants moved out. Though court orders instructed Grand View to fix these issues and not collect rent, a SLO County judge allowed the 55-unit property to be sold. It effectively caused tenants to get evicted and the building closed down in 2019. “Through SLOLAF’S leadership, and with the assistance of the nonprofit community, including People’s Self-Help Housing, Paso Robles Housing Authority, and Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo, most tenants were relocated to safer and improved housing,” Barclay said. Community members donated roughly $60,000 to help the tenants, she said. The Koto Group and Doug Wetton Properties from Santa Barbara and Southern California, respectively, bought the building in 2020. They refurbished the property and renamed it Vista Robles. The new owners said that some of the Grand View

Two years after filing their class action lawsuit for slum-like living conditions at the Grand View Apartments, former tenants of the Paso Robles complex settled the case for more than $4 million. “We can’t undo the harm that the tenants of Grand View Apartments suffered, but we are very happy that they will receive some compensation for their suffering and property losses,” San Luis Obispo Legal Assistance Foundation (SLOLAF) Legal Director Stephanie Barclay wrote to New Times. SLOLAF, the Hutkin Law Firm, and trial attorney Jude Basile worked together on behalf of the former tenants. In May 2019, SLOLAF and the Hutkin Law Firm represented 200 apartment residents who filed a lawsuit against Grand View owners Ebrahim and Fahimeh Madadi and property manager Nicole Davis for failing to take care of vermin and insect infestations along with

4 • New Times • September 23 - September 30, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

Apartments’ former tenants even reached out to move back in. The settlement won preliminary approval on Sept. 15. The $4 million sum will be distributed to former tenants depending on their length of stay at the complex from May 2015 through February 2020. Barclay said that though they represented 200 people before the settlement, she expects more to reach out now. “Former tenants who had especially severe injuries or property loss sustained at Grand View may apply for enhanced compensation,” she said. Barclay said that funds would only be distributed after receiving final court approval on Dec. 15. Eligible tenants can submit a claim to receive their cut of the settlement. The legal team is currently working to alert as many former tenants as possible. Past residents can contact the Hutkin Law Firm at (805) 544-1500. The attorneys will help them fill out claim forms at Paso Robles Downtown City Park on Sept. 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. NEWS continued page 6

Heidi Harmon gets threatening nude email on her last day as mayor San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon ran her final City Council meeting on Sept. 21 with police protection, after she received an email earlier that day of a threatening and sexualized nature that included nude photos. “Tonight, instead of ending my term as mayor running this meeting, I’ll be ending my term talking with our local police officers,” Harmon said at the virtual council meeting. The email and its author are under investigation by the SLO Police Department. Sent to Harmon’s personal inbox, it included four naked photos of a man and read, “I am offering you awesome cunnilingus but I could use a bath, and hopefully you will be willing to rent a room for the occasion.” The subject line read: “I am a homeless man stranded in this San Luis Obispo and have an offer for you.” Harmon said she received the email just after posting to her Instagram page various examples of the online harassment and abuse she has received over her five-year tenure as mayor. She felt it was important to shine a light on that issue before leaving her post. “It was extra shocking to have gone through those old posts, and then in the middle of that, get that really heinous email,” Harmon told New Times. “It’s violent. It’s an assault, really. … This is a pretty consistent culture of misogyny, and a lot of it does have a violent quality to it.” Among the examples she posted on Instagram, one featured a photo of Harmon with the caption: “This will make you cum in a millisecond.” Another example included a photo Harmon posted of a cut she had on her knee. “Went absolutely bollocks on Gavin Newsom’s throbbing knob last night and got a lil outta hand. Now my knees are fucked up,” the caption read. In another example, a direct message she received read: “I’ll be keeping a very close eye on you and be there to expose you at every turn. There is no rest for the wicked.” Not all of the incidents of harassment have been virtual. In 2017, Harmon had her Pride flag slashed and burned outside her house. In 2020, a man demanding to speak with the mayor pushed through city staff at City Hall and jumped over a front desk counter on his way to the mayor’s office before being tackled to the ground by City Manager Derek Johnson. In her comments at the Sept. 21 City Council meeting, Harmon said, “I’m bringing it up because it’s what’s real … and what’s been happening on some level this whole time.” “And it’s unacceptable,” Harmon said. “I really want to call up this community and this council and everyone to really take a stronger stance … . It’s unacceptable and it’s creating a culture of violence.” Harmon said her experience with harassment and sexism discourages other local women from running for office.

“I cannot tell you how many young women have told me, women in general, that they will not run for office because of how they’ve seen me in this role. That’s incredibly dangerous, and we need to do something about it,” she said. Other SLO City Council members came to Harmon’s defense in response on Sept. 21. “I am so sorry that this is happening to you and you’re right, it’s wrong and not fair. It makes me very, very angry,” Councilmember Carlyn Christianson said. In her final comments from the dais, Harmon, who’s leaving office a year early after taking a position at a climate-advocacy nonprofit, thanked the community for its support. She said she feels “lucky to know that I made a difference” as mayor. “I try to always do the right thing. I don’t always get it right,” she said. “I try to do right, not be right, but I think this is the right thing for me to set this down. Thank you for understanding that.” City Attorney Christine Dietrick offered the final words of the discussion. “I hope the young women who are telling you that they look at you and think, ‘I’ll never do this,’ might step back and reflect, as I do and my daughters do,” Dietrick said, “and feel inspired to continue in this fight … and continue to represent everything you have with integrity, and pride, and grace.” —Peter Johnson

Cayucos seeks more funding for Vets Hall restoration

Cayucos became quieter when its Vets Hall closed in 2016. Now, its residents and San Luis Obispo County staff are trying to upgrade the building for a muchawaited 2023 reopening. Greg Bettencourt is one such concerned resident. He said that the Vets Hall was the town’s social hub. “It’s the center of our town. If you move to Cayucos, and you’re brand-new, that’s how you meet people. You go to something that’s happening at the Vets Hall,” he said. Bettencourt belongs to a fundraising group called the Restore Cayucos Vets Hall Committee, which was formed over the summer. When the hall shuttered because of structural issues, residents were told that it would be restored by 2018. “The timeline got extended again and again. Our committee feels that it’s not only timely but essential that the community gets involved and contributes to getting the Vets Hall restored,” committee member Sherry Sim said. The county Public Works Department leads the rehabilitation project, and they’re working to acquire the majority of the estimated $5.4 million cost. In 2019, the California Natural Resources Agency awarded the county with an almost $2 million grant to refurbish the Vets Hall, which is a designated historic site. The Board of Supervisors was supposed to consider passing the remaining $3.5 million as repayable bonds at its Sept. 28 meeting, but the agenda item got postponed to Nov. 2. Bettencourt thought the delay was due to an internal recommendation from county staff to better prepare the supervisors on the topic. Sim said that time is of the essence. “The $1.8 million to $1.9 million grant is good till 2023. However, building needs to begin soon, to capitalize on this grant. It’s likely that an application would be

6 • New Times • September 23 - September 30, 2021 • www.newtimesslo.com

made to extend the $1.8 to $1.9 million grant to 2025,” she said. The committee has a two-pronged goal with the fundraiser: to prove to supervisors that there is strong community support and need for the hall, and to use the donations to pay off the $3.5 million bond if the board grants them the money. The committee’s longterm aim is raise $500,000. Sim said they had received 104 pledges worth $100,000 in total by Sep. 20. She also mentioned that local nonprofit organizations and private donors provided another $150,000. With fund approval proving to be a slow process, could the Board of Supervisors be hesitant? “Lots of people are hesitant to have government spending more money than somebody thinks is appropriate. We’re trying to convince the board that this is money well spent because the hall is going to be able to repay the debt, and the hall makes significant money for the county and the community,” Bettencourt said. SLO County Parks and Recreation Director Nick Franco thinks supervisors would only be hesitant because of the current economic climate ravaged by the pandemic. “They would want a better picture of what’s the overall county’s financial health and what’s the projection for the next five years, and that’s kind of a hard projection to do when things are still unstable right now,” he said. Parks and Rec plans to help manage the Vets Hall once it’s up and running. Presently, Lions Club volunteers look after it and occasionally rent out the available outdoor space for barbecues, according to Vets Hall Facilities Manager Breck Smith. He told New Times that the Lions Club was paying utility bills even though the closed hall brings no income. The hall’s closure combined with COVID-19 also forced Smith to lay off his only full-time employee. Franco said that Parks and Rec took over payments for utilities that cost a “couple of thousand dollars a month.” “Once it’s open, we’ll figure out a way to work with the Lions Club so that they can be the on-site presence but we’re going to take that revenue and pay off the cost of the restoration,” he said. Franco hopes that the new-andimproved building would operate primarily as a wedding venue that pulls in gross revenue around $200,000 a year for the Vets Hall. This amount would also be used to pay off the $3.5 million bond. It’s a major leap from the $40,000 that Smith said the hall used to bring in before the closure, the lion’s share of which was funneled into scholarships and donations. Franco mentioned that the upgraded hall would also improve the county’s coffers through transient occupancy taxes. “For Cayucos, this is very, very important. We get asked about the status all the time because it is essentially the heart of Cayucos. It is a critical part of the community,” Franco said. —Bulbul Rajagopal

People of all ages benefit from free food programs on Central Coast

At Laguna Middle School in SLO, U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) gathered around an outdoor picnic table with a dozen students on Sept. 16, eating

a meal prepared by the school’s food services staff as part of a hunger tour of the 24th Congressional District. “The federal funding resulted in [Laguna Middle School] being able to hire the staff, the chef, and the nutrition specialist that have helped put together this great program,” Carbajal said. Also thanks to pandemic-prompted federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), Laguna Middle School is now able to provide a free breakfast and lunch to all students, regardless of their income status. Carbajal said the passing of ARPA kickstarted the universal meal program that states like California are now implementing longer term. “My hope and goal is that we can do this for the entire nation, beyond the American Rescue Plan funding, like Gov. Newsom has done for the state of California,” Carbajal said. “It’s part of the [budget] discussions that we’re having right now.” Carbajal added that universal school meals could also be funded through the farm bill, which determines federal agricultural policy for five years at a time. The last one was passed in 2018, so the 2023 bill discussions will begin next year, Carbajal said. “It could include augmentation to the SNAP program, it could include augmentation to the year-round school meal program, all of those issues are up for discussion and reauthorization,” Carbajal said. San Luis Coastal Unified School District Director of Food Services Erin Primer said a universal meal program helps remove the stigma around getting school lunch, since children of all income levels are now eligible to receive free lunch. And the need has only grown: While before the pandemic 1 in 6 kids were food insecure in SLO County, now 1 in 4 are, Primer said. “It’s free and it’s good. That is the secret formula,” Primer said. “Even today at lunch, you don’t know who would have been on the [free lunch] program previously or not.” And hunger doesn’t just affect children: Overall, in 2020, “the SLO Food Bank distributed a record 5.1 million pounds of food to those in need, a 54 percent increase over our 2019 experience,” according to the Food Bank’s website. Later that afternoon, Carbajal arrived at West Newlove Drive in Santa Maria to help the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County distribute food to farmworkers through a program called Agricultores con Buena Salud (Healthy Farmworkers). Every week, typically on Fridays, the Foodbank and Community Health Centers (CHC) rotate to different farmworker housing locations to hand out food and sanitation supplies. The program started in mid-2020, and has only gained popularity since, Foodbank Director of Community Programs and Education Lacey Baldiviez said. At the Sept. 16 distribution, there were hundreds of farmworkers and children lined up to receive the free food and supplies. Baldiviez said the turnout was a bit higher than usual, probably because Congressman Carbajal was present. “A lot of the residents were waiting for him to come, so they were very excited to get to meet him,” Baldiviez said after the event. “He spent some time handing out food and meeting people, and it was a great experience.” ∆ —Malea Martin

Resolution rescinded Teacher, parent outcry leads Cayucos school board to rescind its Let Them Breathe resolution

ake Rideout was Cayucos Elementary School’s librarian for the past nine years and taught a STEAM course for the last six. But when the school district’s board of trustees passed a Let Them Breathe resolution last month, Rideout made the decision to leave the district. “I loved that school,” she told New Times. “It was such a tiny community, everybody knew everybody. One class of kids go all the way from kindergarten to eighth grade, which is such a magical thing.” Despite her otherwise positive experience, Rideout said she couldn’t stand idly by when she heard the news that the resolution, which asked the state to remove COVID-19 masking requirements in schools, had passed. “We didn’t hear a word about [the resolution] until Aug. 2 when the ParentSquare [notification] came out with the information,” Rideout said. Two days later at the Aug. 4 board meeting, the resolution passed. “Teachers definitely felt pretty blindsided by it,” Rideout said. A couple of days later, she resigned. “I knew that if the board supported that track that I was not going to be coming back,” Rideout said. A month after passing the resolution, the Cayucos Elementary School District board of trustees unanimously rescinded it at a Sept. 8 board meeting. But before it was rescinded, board President Chris Castillo confirmed in a Sept. 1 email that the board followed through on the resolution’s commitment to “advocate in writing to the CDPH [California Department of Public Health] to remove mandatory requirements for preventative measures such as masks, quarantine, and asymptomatic testing.” Castillo also told New Times that there is 100 percent compliance with masking rules. Some parents say otherwise. Cayucos parent Paul Andreano called Castillo’s statement “100 percent not true.” “There has not been 100 percent compliance at Cayucos school with the mask mandate,” Andreano said in a Sept. 2 email. “There have been instances of teachers not wearing masks as well as entire classes not wearing them while indoors. … They are not enforcing the CDPH guidelines as they would have you believe.” Parent Erika Torres made similar allegations. She told New Times that when she picked her son up from the district’s after-school program (ASP), masks were not being worn. “At ASP, there were three occasions when … there was a lack of masking and compliance, lack of following the California Department of Public Health guidelines that I personally observed, and I addressed that each time,” Torres said.

A learning curve Officials agree that new safe parking site is a major step to help the homeless, and there’s more work to do

S

an Luis Obispo County is finally actively addressing its homelessness problem, and the unhoused are feeling the growing pains. In August, the county Administrative Office partnered with 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson and 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton to open up unused land on Kansas Avenue, outside of SLO, where homeless people living in vehicles could voluntarily park. But several homeless people have questioned the site’s placement. Located off Highway 1 beside the county jail, the plot is far away from resources like grocery stores, restaurants, and medical care. Homeless residents in places like Oceano’s 17th Street worry about making the move to Kansas Avenue. “That’s not a safe place at all. It’s hot up there, and there are no stores for convenience,” said John, who requested that New Times not use his real name. He’s a homeless man who lives in an RV on 17th Street next to roughly 10 or so other vehicles. The site next to the jail was established as a response to complaints from Los Osos residents about homeless people living in their vehicles on Palisades Avenue after its use as a safe parking site ended in 2020. Gibson, who represents Los Osos and called himself the conduit for community concerns, let the county Administrative Office know about the objections. After officials allocated roughly $500,000 for the safe parking program, they found free space quicker than expected, Gibson said, because the Kansas Avenue land is county owned. “There are probably some people who wish the homeless would disappear. The reality … is that we can no longer turn our head and ignore the problem,” Gibson said. The county isn’t a stranger to safe parking sites. SLO’s Railroad Square, Palisades Avenue in Los Osos, and the Vets Hall in SLO have all hosted sites, but the Kansas Avenue space is the first of its size as it holds a vehicle capacity of roughly 20. Assistant County Administrative Officer Rebecca Campbell said that the county didn’t take food provision into account when it set up the program. But volunteers are allowed to donate food and other supplies, and she said that a bus stop near the site provides access to SLO. The parking site does not provide residents with drinking water yet, although its bathroom facility has running water. Campbell said that they’re working on providing potable water soon. In August, law enforcement started notifying people living in their cars in places such as Palisades Avenue in Los Osos and 17th Street in Oceano that they need to move their vehicles and that

ediatric cancer is already one of the worst predicaments that a child and family can face. Having to contend with that illness and a global pandemic at the same time is almost unthinkable. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Senior Development Director Brittany Avila Wazny with the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation— which has served families battling childhood cancer in the San Luis ObispoSanta Barbara-Ventura Tri-Counties area since 2002—has worked hard to bolster its programs and services knowing that its families face even more uncertainty, isolation, and health risks due to the virus. “COVID has been not only isolating, but incredibly frightening to families,” she said. “They’re already isolating because if someone so much as coughs around their child and their child gets the common cold even, it’s life threatening during their treatment. They’re having to do so tenfold now. … It’s very traumatic.” The impacts of COVID-19 on these families are endless—added isolation, schooling challenges, and economic impacts of lost work are just a few. In an effort to meet the moment, Teddy Bear is writing more checks to families, doubling the number of support groups it offers, LITTLE WARRIOR Ariya Ramos (pictured), of Santa Maria, was diagnosed and going the extra mile on holidays to with neuroblastoma in 2018 when she was deliver joy to clients. just 3 years old.

Opinion Have a nimble attitude Flexibility is the ability to bend without breaking. I work at a local gymnastics facility, and I see so many clients who think “flexibility” is only about doing backbends or the splits. Nope. Flexibility isn’t just physical. Sometimes we need to do some mental limbering-up as well. From bent knees in a cartwheel to a faux pas at work to forgetting a best friend’s birthday, realizing you made a mistake and being able to find a way to improve requires a nimble attitude. Take the time to analyze change, decide on a way to make the most of it, and stay the course. Never underestimate the power of a flexible mind. Flexibility allows us to dream and find solutions, not to mention being important for our physical wellbeing. So do a little split and dream a little dream every day.

Hey, Jordan Cunningham! For a guy who likes to talk a big game about supporting the middle class and advocating for the job force, you sure threw nurses under the bus with your letter to the Health and Human Services asking to wipe out our staffing ratios. Nurses have been working the last 18 months with crushingly highacuity patients during the pandemic, and slashing our hard-fought patientto-nurse ratios will only lead to more burnout, more nurses leaving the bedside, and an exacerbation of the nursing shortage. Maybe you should get out into your community and talk to nurses (not hospital administrators) and find out what they think of your suggestion. You would be hard-pressed to find any nurse in California that thinks that upping our ratios is a good idea. Many of these local nurses likely voted for you—you could try your hand at supporting them by advocating for them with things that may actually help our frontline workers—like bonus pay, loan forgiveness, subsidies to hospitals for crisis travel nurses, and fighting to keep the ratios in place. If you can’t do these things, maybe just admit that you’re working for the highest bidder in campaign contributions. Grace Miller San Luis Obispo

Thank you, election workers The Sept. 14 recall election presented real challenges to our SLO County election officials. In the short span of two months they sent vote-by-mail ballots to all registered voters, found polling places in communities throughout the county, and recruited and trained staff and volunteers to run the election.

With COVID-19 still raging, they instituted health and safety precautions to protect both the voters and the poll workers. They made it work. Voters were able to either mail in their ballots, drop them off at designated drop boxes, or vote in person at a traditional polling place. When all the ballots are processed and counted, turnout will be nearly 70 percent, high for a special election and higher than the state average. The League of Women Voters thanks the elections officials and their staffs for their commitment to the election process. We thank the voters for participating in the election, the community institutions that provided their facilities as polling places, and the legion of volunteers who gave their time to make this a smooth, trouble-free election. This includes volunteers from the League of Women Voters who worked at polling places around the county, in keeping with our mission to empower voters and defend democracy. Civic engagement is alive and well in our county. We should all be proud. Cindy Marie Absey president League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County

Job applicants for District 4: Please step forward Conservative supervisors neglected to include any requirement of prior election experience as part of their open invitation to apply for county clerk-recorder. This comes after they cast and allowed baseless hatred and accusations for outgoing Clerk Tommy Gong. Only four of the 44 applicants have any prior election experience! More troubling was the fact that 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton again took the big lie even further by appointing her GOP Attack Lawyer, Chuck Bell, as the District 4 selection committee representative. Hmm … what are the chances that all his endorsements might somehow be aligned with the GOP? To quote Ken Hampian, a committee member and former SLO city manager, in introductory comments: “This is a politically fraught time. There are a lot of politics … . We have the opportunity here to set all of that aside and focus entirely on the applications in front of us.” Lynn Compton must go. Time for a nonpartisan, forward-thinking representative who listens to all of their constituents and gathers intelligence, rather than the self-serving candidate who raises campaign finance limits, forms her own “alternative” committees for Oceano, denies that unhealthy air exists, and openly follows the partisan,

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY JOHN DONEGAN

The homeless T here has been a lot of handwringing and gnashing of teeth recently about the homeless problem. Who are they and what should we do about them? The most visible and problematic homeless are the substance abusers and mentally ill. The problem seems to be getting worse, as we see tent cities springing up in our parks, creeks, and roadways, and legions of drug-crazed zombies lurching about and ranting incoherently. The problem is the worst in our “progressive” cities, which have thrown massive amounts of money away in providing homeless services and in aggravating the problem. In San Francisco, the deterioration of public places has grown so severe that I wouldn’t be that surprised to see an outbreak of al fresco cannibalism. So, before Tony Bennet’s crooning about “leaving his heart in San Francisco … ” takes on a darker meaning, maybe it is time for us to take a realistic look at the problem. To hear a liberal tell it, all homelessness is merely the result of high housing prices. Now, when I see someone ranting incoherently, or lying face down on the sidewalk in urine-soaked clothing, my immediate impression is not, “Gosh, look what the high cost of housing has done to this poor fellow.” No, I tend to reflect on substance abuse, and on a person throwing their life away getting high. In their case, the real problem is addiction, and homelessness is just one of the symptoms. We can’t do much about addiction. Getting high is fun and feels good, at least momentarily. We’ve tried to interdict the supply of drugs without success. Getting high appeals to the bored and directionless, a population growing as our schools fail and many are seduced by a toxic popular culture. You don’t just “catch” a drug or drinking habit—it involves choices. A friend once described his sole experience with crack cocaine by saying “I liked it too much,” and chose to never use it again. Another friend who is an alcoholic keeps assuring me that he plans to stop drinking, but has spent around 30 years telling me that he is “working on it.” Another choice. Most of the addicted and mentally ill homeless reject any sort of long-term residential treatment, the only type of treatment with a reasonable chance for success, and the law prevents involuntary institutionalization. We do not have the ability to “fix” them. Give them free housing? Providing housing to the addicted merely enables them by providing a comfortable location to continue their downward spiral of selfdestruction. Conquering addiction takes an immense amount of willpower and self-discipline, something which society is unable to provide. Some have mustered the will to kick their addiction from the shock and shame of hitting rock bottom. A comfortable person is less motivated to conquer their addiction. Housing that prohibits the use of drugs or alcohol will usually be rejected. Consider the vacancies in the 40 Prado shelter, even in bad weather, shunned

because it will not allow residents to drink or take drugs on-site and controls behavior. And the impossibility of controlling drug and alcohol use inside of a private residence is obvious. It is reasonable to expect the government to keep the badly addicted and demented out of our public places. Their occupancy is incompatible with use by the rest of us. The primary duty of all government is the security of its citizens, and the focus should be on the needs of the many, not the few. How much must society sacrifice in order to accommodate the addicted and the crazy? Should a community be expected to give up their parks and public areas, to accept danger to their children and themselves, and to accept the deterioration of their quality of life from human waste, needles, crime, and craziness? Using an isolated location like the Kansas Avenue lot for camping, and by enforcing quality-of-life ordinances to control behavior in public areas, is probably the best solution. There are other elements of the homeless population who do not create a problem. For example, the older nomadics depicted in Jessica Bruder’s book Nomadland (and made into an excellent movie). These older folks typically are functional, live in their RVs, trailers, and vans; stay in campgrounds, trailer parks, and on open public lands; and travel around the country to seasonal jobs. The employed and unaddicted homeless are not the folks creating the big problems. The only thing that will solve their problem is cheaper housing. But since we live in an area in which far more people would like to live than can be realistically accommodated, I can’t see this problem being solved. The addicted homeless are not necessarily dangerous and are often kind and sympathetic people. Many have heartrending stories and can be truly pitiful. Still, they are on a downward trajectory that we can not fix, and as harsh as this sounds, the best we can do is to isolate them and protect ourselves. ∆ John Donegan is a retired attorney in Pismo Beach who is grateful that his instinctively cautious nature protected him from some of the dumb ideas that appeal to the young.

The Shredder

Nowhere to go “

but sometimes court remedies are all we have. Recently, California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA), Public Interest Law Project, and the Law Office of Babak Naficy filed a lawsuit against SLO city to stop what they argue has been an unconstitutional criminalization of homelessness. The lawsuit points to SLO’s myriad municipal codes that seem clearly aimed at harassing the homeless, such as the prohibition against camping or sleeping overnight in vehicles, the ban on being in public parks after hours or open spaces overnight, the rule against staying and camping overnight near a creek, and, more recently, the ban on tents in public parks and unsanctioned shopping cart usage. The lawsuit also points to the Fourth Amendment—“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures”—arguing that confiscating the unhoused’s possessions is a clear violation. Here’s the notice the city posts when demanding homeless encampments disperse: “Failure to comply with this order will result in the arrest of your person and the seizure of your property. If you leave, and in so doing, abandon your belongings ... the belongings will be removed and discarded. You will be prosecuted for the abandoning of the belongings ...

rother, can you spare a buck?” (Inflation, amirite?) I think all can agree that SLO County’s homelessness problem is a bigass issue. Do you like seeing people living on the street or panhandling? Do you want people camped in public parks and along waterways surrounded by trash? Pretty sure nobody does! What we can’t seem to agree on is an effective solution. Some “bleeding hearts” see the unhoused and feel deep compassion, wondering why as a society we can’t collectively do more, or, more importantly, why what we are doing isn’t working. Some “heartless” others look at the unhoused and see the lazy, mentally ill, and addicted, and feel nothing but a massive empathy deficit. Such people— like retired attorney John Donegan who wrote this week’s Rhetoric & Reason column (“The homeless,” page 11)—think we should “isolate them and protect ourselves” before there’s an “outbreak of al fresco cannibalism.” That “out of sight, out of mind” approach seems to be the city of San Luis Obispo’s preferred method. It has an ongoing pattern of breaking up homeless camps, only to have them pop up again in another location. I guess the idea is if you hassle the homeless enough, you’ll … what? Drive them out of town? Inspire them to “get a damn job!”? Seriously, what’s the point? I’m not a big fan of our litigation nation,

t’s prime concert season, and for the approximately 40 people who showed up at the Shots for Shows vaccination event last week at the Fremont Theater, they’re now closer to being protected from COVID-19 and part of the solution to keep live music going in SLO County. “More than anything, we increased awareness a tiny bit and, hopefully, tied it to our being able to see live music and have fun again,” said Otter Productions Inc. owner Bruce Howard, one of the partners that manage the Fremont Theater. This Saturday, Sept. 25, the Fremont will present MC Magic’s the Lost in Love Tour with Baby Bash, Lil Rob, Jay Roxxx, and Bella (8 p.m.; all ages; $50 plus fees general or $120 plus fees meetand-greet at fremontslo.com). MC Magic is Marco Cardenas, a rapper, songwriter, and producer who raps and sings in English and Spanish. Next, as a stop on their Bare Bones Tour, South Carolina-based duo Shovels & Rope plays the Fremont on Tuesday, Sept. 28 (9 p.m.; all ages; $20 to $30 plus fees at fremontslo.com). This Americana, folk, country, and rock act features husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst, who write amazing songs and sing really well together, and they usually swap off instrumentation (guitar, keys, drums, percussion, etc.). “We are genuinely thrilled to be able to announce an entire tour of new shows,” they said in press materials. “It’s been a long year, and we are beyond grateful to be able to get back on the road and reconnect with y’all. And what better time to play some shows in a way that we’ve never done before. The Bare Bones Tour will be our first truly stripped down tour. Piano. Guitar. Voices, … and that’s pretty much it. Rooms will be a bit more intimate, and we are all probably going to be a bit quieter in volume, but just as loud in spirit. Expect some classics, some deep cuts, and maybe a few new tunes. Let’s get intimate!” Country superstar Marty Stuart is up next at the Fremont on Wednesday, Sept. 29 (8 p.m.; all ages; $25 to $45 plus fees). The Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician has one of the most storied careers in country music, and this show will take you through his journey. His most recent album is Way Out West (2017), but he also has a new one called Songs I Sing In The Dark awaiting release. Way Out West opens “with a Native American prayer, a nod to Stuart’s affinity for the indigenous people, particularly the Lakota,” according to press material.

LEGEND Country superstar Marty Stuart plays the Fremont Theater on Sept. 29, bringing with him more than five decades of performance experience.

“If you go and sit by yourself in the middle of the Mojave Desert at sundown and you’re still the same person the next morning when the sun comes up, I’d be greatly surprised,” Stuart said. “It is that spirit world of the West that enchants me. Everything that came out of California captivated my kid mind in Mississippi. It seemed like a fantasy land. Way Out West is a love letter to that.”

Central Coast astronomer and former NASA scientist pens new activity book for children

Astronomy Activity Book for Kids: 100+ Fun Ways to Learn About Space and Stargazing, written by local astronomer and teacher Aurora Lipper, was released in mid-September. The book was published by Zeitgeist, an imprint of Penguin Random House, and is available to purchase through various outlets, including Amazon. The book features a variety of puzzles, games, beginner-friendly projects for practical stargazing, and accompanying illustrations by artist Victoria Stebleva. Press materials describe Lipper’s new book as “everything any aspiring junior astronomer needs to have fun with independent learning about the night sky.” Among the book’s supporters is Fraser Cain, publisher of Universe Today and co-host of Astronomy Cast, who said that he would have “absolutely loved a space and activity book like this” when as a kid. Forrest Mims III, an inductee of Discover magazine’s “50 Best Brains in Science,” expressed a similar sentiment in press materials. “The best thing I can say about this superbly crafted book is that I wish it had been available when my three children were growing up,” Mims said. “While it’s a children’s book, parents and teachers will learn as much from its lessons, photographs, and illustrations as the youngsters.” Lipper resides in San Luis Obispo, where she’s taught lectures in engineering systems, dynamics, and other subjects at Cal Poly (where she received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mechanical engineering). She’s also a former NASA scientist and the founder of Supercharged Science in SLO. For more info on Lipper, visit superchargedscience.com. ∆ —Caleb Wiseblood

Day trip

BY MALEA MARTIN

24 hours in Cuyama Resilience, restoration, and relaxation are the common threads in New Cuyama, an ideal day trip or weekend getaway

PHOTOS BY MALEA MARTIN

T

he Cuyama Buckhorn Roadside Resort, newly renovated with Wild West motifs and plenty of mid-century modern flair, is what brought me to New Cuyama for the first time on a recent road trip, and that aesthetic will certainly bring me back in the future. But the 24-hour trip ended up being more than just lounging poolside with sangria (though there was plenty of that, too). I also got to know a community co-existing with the drought, leaning into economic resilience, and finding balance between past and present. Before checking in to the Buckhorn, my first stop was at Cuyama Homegrown, a small farm operated and owned by married couple Meg Brown and Jean Gaillard. They’ve got veggies, an orchard, chickens, herbs, and more. What Meg and Jean don’t eat themselves is sold to local Cuyamans. In addition to farming, Jean is a farrier (a specialist in equine hoof care), does a little blacksmithing, and serves as the local horse dentist. In a town of fewer than 1,000 residents, people tend to have more than one occupation here. “The guy who fixes our well, he drives the bus also,” Meg said. Meg and Jean said they take pride in the farm’s water-wise approach, a practice in both sustainability and necessity. As we toured the farm mid-morning in close to 95 degree heat, Meg said, “We’ve never had it this dry, this hot.” Drought is something Cuyama Homegrown has become accustomed to. Juniper trees sprinkle the property, but they used to be more abundant. “We have a lot, but we lost at least 50 percent of our junipers in the last five-year dry spell,” Meg said. “It was milder than what we had this year.” Rainfall varies a lot throughout the region, Meg told me. In this part of the valley, “it’s the most water deficit in the basin, in terms of groundwater, and the least amount of rainfall.” Meg and Jean both focus on what they call resilient farming. “So, diversification of crops: one fails, but another one does better,” Meg said. “We got a grant from USDA, from the conservation services, and set up a couple tanks. When it rains, they collect lots of water. The idea was to plant native species … try to build it back up.” Cuyama Homegrown works in close partnership with the Buckhorn, selling the resort restaurant its seasonal crops that inspire entire dishes on the menu. Grilled Cuyama Homegrown corn rubbed with cilantro-pistachio pesto and queso fresco is on the special menu later that night, when I’m dining at the Buckhorn. I’ve never thought to pair pesto with corn—or to make pesto with cilantro and pistachios—but it ended up being one of the best cobs I’ve ever sunk

Glen I love Clint Eastwood’s filmmaking, but he sometimes stumbles. The 15:17 to Paris was pretty unwatchable. A few films, such as Hereafter, are forgettable, but by and large, he makes quality, compelling pictures, many of which are outright masterpieces. While worthwhile, Cry Macho is one of Eastwood’s lesser efforts. It’s overly sentimental and suffers from amateurish acting in key roles. That said, it’s fun to watch Eastwood, now 91, amble through a character near the end of his life who has a regretful past but hopes to redeem himself in his final years. Mike has lost everything but his integrity. Rafo, on the other hand, thinks being a macho man is everything. He even names his fighting cock Macho and longs to be a real cowboy like Mike. But Rafo, who ran away from his abusive mother, trusts no one. Living on the streets of Mexico City, he’s an easy target, so his affected machismo is the armor he wears to protect himself. As they embark on the journey north, they must contend with Rafo’s mother’s henchman and the Federales, who’ve been alerted to a gringo taking a Mexican boy from his mother. Along the way, they encounter Marta (Natalia Traven), a widowed restaurant owner caring for her four granddaughters after the death of her daughter. Rafo discovers what a good parental figure is like while Mike provides an example of gentlemanly behavior. Maybe this angry street urchin is redeemable after all. Anna Cry Macho is a solid example of an OK movie that’s both watchable and forgettable. I don’t want to slam newcomer Eduardo Minett, but it’s clear this young actor still has some acting training work to do. He plays teenage angst just fine, but there isn’t much nuance, and he tries too hard to be the angry “macho” version of his character. For Eastwood, this is

ick Brewer seems to be the typical family man, so when he’s abducted and humiliated publicly online, those closest to him are sent reeling. His level-headed and cautious wife, Sophie (Betty Gabriel), is protective of their two sons’ exposure to their father’s predicament, and his explosive and hardheaded sister, Pia (Zoe Kazan), is ready to dive head first into detective mode. When the video is released, we see Nick bloody and battered, holding a sign that says once the video hits 5 million views he will be killed, and so the race is on. Detective Amiri (Phoenix Raei) takes on the case and soon realizes that these threats could very well be

real and there’s no chance Pia is going to let him forget that they’re up against a clock that won’t stop ticking. This eight-part series takes us through some pretty big twists and turns, a handful of red herrings, and big surprises in the bloodpumping final moments. We don’t know the truth until the very end, and what’s revealed is a shocker. This is definitely a bingeable series, but also a limited release, so this storyline most likely ends here. If you like a bit of a thriller and a series that keeps you guessing, this is definitely worth a watch. (eight 42- to 52-min. episodes) —Anna

o-written and directed by Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces, The Grey, Boss Level), Copshop delivers an action-filled crime drama. On the run from an assassin, con artist Teddy Murretto (Frank Grillo) tries to hide in a small town jail by punching rookie cop Valerie Young (Alexis Louder) and getting himself arrested, but the assassin, Bob Viddick (Gerard Butler), finds his own way to get locked up, biding his time in the cell next door until he gets a chance to complete his mission. When a competing assassin (Toby Huss) shows up, all hell breaks loose. I’m a big fan of Carnahan’s high-octane macho fantasies, and while this one doesn’t

measure up to his better films, for action fans it’s worth a trip to the theater for two main reasons: Louder is flat-out awesome as a rookie cop with integrity and bravery to burn; and Huss is a scenery-chewing psychopath whose hitman character is a joy to watch. To their credit, both Grillo and Butler turn in watchable performances, but Louder and Huss steal every scene they’re in. As for the action, it’s in keeping with Carnahan’s “more is more” philosophy. Heads get bashed and bullets fly fast and furious, and though there’s something of a mid-film slump, the story ends with a crackling intensity that’s impossible to turn away from. If you have a hankering for some crazy mayhem, this is worth a trip to the theater. (107 min.). Δ —Glen

New era dawns for Night Shift

‘Cookier’ showcases her hand-decorated baked holiday and everyday creations at SLO Public Market

A

lexa Smith loves Halloween. So it’s no surprise that she chose October to open her new cookie shop at SLO Public Market. The name of her company is also fitting. Night Shift stems from working graveyard hours—baking cookies from her registered cottage food kitchen in San Luis Obispo—after putting in a full day at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center. “Most nights I start anywhere from 5 to 8 p.m., and I can say there are times I’ve seen the sun rise around the holidays when I’m extra busy,” she said. “I’m also a huge horror fan, and one of my favorite Stephen King short story collections is called Night Shift. So the idea of the logo I wanted was a cookie that looked like the moon, [with] bats to give it a little spooky feel.” Smith, who was born and raised in SLO, has been involved in the health care industry and baking treats from home since she was a teenager. She honed both skills over the years, obtaining an online degree in health care administration from Colorado State University Global and launching Night Shift Cookie Co. in 2018. The two skills may seem disparate, but Smith approaches them similarly. Her health care experience includes administrative functions, such as billing, coding, and revenue analysis. “I’m a very procedural person—some might call it type A—and baking … is really about specific measurements and techniques,” she said. “If you stray even a little, you can ruin the whole product. I like that about baking. I think it’s also why a lot of people really hate baking.”

BATTY FOR BAKING Alexa Smith’s round-the-clock work regimen may lighten soon. She quit her day job, and even her appearance at local vendor events may phase out, depending on customer demand at her new brick-and-mortar shop in SLO.

Satisfy your sweet tooth

For more information, visit nightshiftcookieco.com or follow the company on Instagram or Facebook @nightshiftcookieco. Hours and a grand opening date will be announced in October. For a complete list of SLO Public Market tenants, visit slopublicmarket.com.

One thing’s for sure: Smith’s friends and co-workers are happy subjects for her baking trials. Co-worker Sheri Burks has been ordering Smith’s treats for years. “Alexa’s cookies stand out because they’re fresh, tasty works of art,” Burks said. From birthdays to holidays and everything in between, Smith always exceeds expectations, she said. “Just tell her what you want—what design, caricature, flower, unicorn, etc. She can do anything,” Burks continued. “As far as Alexa opening a brick-andmortar at SLO Public Market, it’s her dream. She has always wanted to have the opportunity to have a shop and bakery of her own. I believe she will be a great asset to the SLO Public Market.” The compact 115-square-foot space

will showcase her repertoire of iced sugar cookies and macarons, which will continue to be baked from scratch at her home cottage food kitchen. The reality of having her own cookie shop is still settling in, Smith said. It’s been a continually evolving journey, from making “practice cookies” for co-workers, to posting creations on her social media accounts, to volunteering her services for friends’ and colleagues’ special occasions. Eventually, they started offering to pay, she continued, “and that’s when I realized I needed to look into how I could do this legally.” After receiving her permit and business license, she launched her business via social media and word of mouth. “Every year I was seeing an increase in orders, and it was super exciting,” she said.

Award-Winning Patricio’s Pizza for Take-Out or Delivery

“I was doing all this while working full time [at Sierra Vista]. But I honestly haven’t had a day where I think, ‘Wow, this is so stressful, I need to scale back or stop.’ I love what I do. Most of my frustration comes from having to turn down orders because there just isn’t enough time in the day.” She found herself “daydreaming about how I could make being a ‘cookier’ a fulltime job, which usually spiraled into stressful thoughts about health insurance, retirement, and all those fun things.” Her life changed dramatically this month when SLO Public Market reached out regarding a space they had available at its upcoming 4-acre complex at the corner of South Higuera Street and Tank Farm Road.

Said sale will be made in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $176,651.56 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. 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 pres-

LEGAL NOTICES ent 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 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: It’s time for Brag Therapy. Send me your proud and shiny boasts. Newsletter@freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries author Steve Maraboli says, “The best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.” If that strategy appeals to you, the next eight weeks will be an excellent time to put it to maximum use. You’re entering a phase when you can have an especially beneficial effect on people you care for. You’ll be at peak power to help them unleash dormant potentials and access untapped resources.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Happy Birthday sometime soon, Libra! As gifts, I have collected six useful mini-oracles for you to meditate on during the rest of 2021. They’re all authored by Libran aphorist Yahia Lababidi. 1. Hope is more patient than despair and so outlasts it. 2. Miracles are proud creatures; they will not reveal themselves to those who do not believe. 3. A good listener is one who helps us overhear ourselves. 4. One definition of success might be refining our appetites, while deepening our hunger. 5. With enigmatic clarity, life gives us a different answer each time we ask her the same question. 6. Temptation: seeds we are forbidden to water, that are showered with rain.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s a good time to ruminate about things you wish could be part of your life but aren’t. You will be wise to develop a more conscious relationship with wistful fantasies about impossible dreams. Here’s one reason why this is true: You might realize that some seemingly impossible dreams aren’t so impossible. To get in the mood for this fun exercise, meditate on a sample reverie: “I wish I could spend a whole day discovering new music to love. I wish I owned a horse and a boat and a vintage brown and orange striped bohemian cardigan sweater from the 1970s. I wish I knew the names of all the flowers. I wish I felt more at ease about revealing my hidden beauty. I wish I could figure out how to eliminate unnecessary stress from my life.”

GEMINI

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pioneering psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “I must also have a dark side if I am to be whole.” But it’s important to add that some dark sides tend to be destructive and demoralizing, while other dark sides are fertile and interesting. Most of us have a share of each. My reading of the planetary omens suggests that you Scorpios now have extra power to upgrade your relationship with the fertile and interesting aspects of your dark side. I hope you will take advantage! You have a ripe opportunity to deepen and expand your wholeness.

(May 21-June 20): Poet, essayist, and translator Anne Carson calls her husband Robert Currie the “Randomizer.” His role in her life as a creative artist is to make quirky recommendations that help her avoid being too predictable. He sends her off in directions she wouldn’t have imagined by herself. Here’s an example: At one point in her career, Carson confessed she was bored with her writing. The Randomizer suggested, “Let’s put dancers into it.” In response, she repurposed the sonnets she had been working on into a live theatrical performance featuring many dancers. I think you would benefit from having a Randomizer in your life during the coming weeks. Know anyone who could serve? If not, look for one. Or be your own Randomizer.

SAGITTARIUS

CANCER

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Baltasar Gracián was not a 21st century New Age self-help teacher. He was a 17th century Jesuit philosopher born under the sign of serious, diligent Capricorn. I hope you will be extra receptive to his advice in the coming weeks. He wrote, “Know your key qualities, your outstanding gifts. Cultivate them. Redouble their use.” Among the key qualities he gave as examples were disciplined discernment and resilient courage. I bring his thoughts to your attention because the coming weeks will be a rousing time to heed his counsel. It’s time for you to identify and celebrate and give abundant expression to your key qualities.

(June 21-July 22): If you so desired, you could travel to Munich, Germany, and eat beer-flavored ice cream. Or you could go to Rehoboth, Delaware and get bacon-flavored ice cream. If you were in Taiwan, you could enjoy pineapple shrimp ice cream, and if you were in London, you could sample haggis-flavored ice cream, made from sheep innards. But my advice right now is to stick with old reliables like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream—which are still delicious even if they’re not exotic. What’s my reasoning? In general, the astrological aspects suggest that during the coming weeks, you’re most likely to thrive on trustworthy standbys and experiences you know and trust.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Celebrated novelist Jane Austen (17751817) wrote, “Sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.” People who aren’t as articulate as Austen experience that problem even more often than she did. But the good news, Leo, is that in the coming weeks, you’ll be extra skillful at expressing your feelings and thoughts—even those that in the past have been difficult to put into words. I invite you to take maximum advantage of this grace period. Communicate with hearty poise and gleeful abandon.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “When you know what’s important, it’s a lot easier to ignore what’s not,” writes author and life coach Marie Forleo. Let’s make her thought the basis of your work and play in the coming weeks. Get vibrantly clear on what is of supreme value to you, which influences bring out the best in you, and which people make it easy for you to be yourself. Then compose a second list of trivial situations that are of minor interest, influences that make you feel numb, and people who don’t fully appreciate you. Next, Virgo, formulate long-term plans to phase out the things in the second list as you increasingly emphasize your involvement in the pleasures named in the first list.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian poet Rainer Maria Rilke was a complicated person with many mysterious emotions and convoluted thoughts. And yet, he once wrote that life occasionally brought him “boundless simplicity and joy.” I find it amazing he could ever welcome such a state. Kudos to him! How about you, dear Sagittarius? Are you capable of recognizing when boundless simplicity and joy are hovering in your vicinity, ready for you to seize them? If so, be extra alert in the next two weeks. I expect there’ll be a visitation or two. Maybe even three or four.

CAPRICORN

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): After studying the genes that create feathers in birds, scientists found that humans have all the necessary genes to grow feathers. (I read about it in National Geographic magazine.) So why don’t we grow feathers, then? Well, it’s complicated. Basically, the feather-making genes are not fully activated. Who knows? Maybe someday, there’ll be technology that enables us to switch on those genes and sprout plumage. I bet my Aquarian friend Jessie, whose body has 30 tattoos and 17 piercings, would take advantage. In the coming weeks, it might be fun for you to imagine having bird-like qualities. You’re entering a high-flying phase—a time for ascension, expansion, soaring, and seeing the big picture from lofty vantage points.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Are there sensual and erotic acts you’ve never tried and are curious about? Are there experimental approaches on the frontier of your desires that would be intriguing to consider? Might there be lusty experiences you’ve barely imagined or don’t know about—but that could be fun to play with? According to my analysis of the astrological omens, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to explore such possibilities. Be safe and prudent, of course. Don’t be irresponsible or careless. But also be willing to expand your notions of your sexuality. ∆
