Lucia Mar recall effort ramps up, board members’ homes targeted

O

n Oct. 5, protesters showed up at the homes of Lucia Mar Unified School District’s board members for the third virtual meeting in a row. It first happened on Sept. 7, as the school board conducted its bi-monthly meeting. Protesters showed up at board Vice President Colleen Martin’s house, who said that one protester pepper sprayed a neighbor who came to her defense. During the next meeting on Sept. 21, three board members had protesters at the bottom of their driveways: Martin, along with board President Don Stewart and board member Dee Santos. And on Oct. 5, protesters were back at Martin’s and Stewart’s houses. The board members targeted by protests over the past month are the same three who Central Coast Families for Education Reform is attempting to recall. The group of vocal Lucia Mar parents is collecting signatures right now, and they need to reach more than 8,000 by Nov. 5 to get the recall on a ballot. According to Central Coast Families Vice President Mike Mulder, the small group of protesters—Martin said there were six at her house on Oct. 5—are not affiliated with his group. He said most of the individuals are from North County, where school districts like Paso Robles Unified are having board meetings in person again. They’re coming down to protest the Lucia Mar meetings still being virtual, Mulder said. “We have talked to the folks in those groups and we’ve asked them to stop,” Mulder said.

“We understand that there’s this level of frustration out there.” Martin and Stewart don’t agree with Mulder’s assertion that the protesters are unaffiliated with Central Coast Families. “The first night they protested they had their Central Coast Families sign,” Martin said. “The guy who sprayed the pepper spray, we know lives in Grover, because we know he’s a parent in our schools. … They would not be here if it wasn’t for the rallies that Central Coast Families for Education Reform organized.” Stewart added, “I’m sure they want to distance themselves, but you can’t rile these people up and then step back and say we had nothing to with it.” Mulder said Central Coast Families is focused on its recall effort, which is seeking to remove the three board members from office because of their COVID-19 response. “Our district basically closed schools and would not reopen them,” he said. “When things are conducted via Zoom, we see that the public is not best served in that format. We’ve actually filed Brown Act violations with the board, following the complaint process, that are currently pending.” Lucia Mar Unified Teachers Association, the union representing teachers in the district, does not support the recall effort. Union President Cody King called it counterproductive. “Having virtual board meetings is done for safety, and it doesn’t have an impact on our students and their learning,” King said. “Teachers always want to focus on what has the

debate, 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton was the deciding vote to stop that push. “It was a rock and a hard place,” Compton told New Times on Oct. 6, “and I just felt like the best way to move us forward was to at least go through with these three interviews and … if it doesn’t work, come back.” Arnold’s Oct. 5 motion would have added local attorney Stew Jenkins, former Bakersfield Assistant Clerk Lena Legge, auto mall executive and former California City Mayor David Evans, and state health official Barbara Schmitz to the finalist pool. Opponents of that, like 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson, saw the move as an attempt to ram unqualified candidates into the vacant clerk-recorder position in time to oversee county redistricting and a March 2022 primary election that involves three open supervisor seats, including Gibson’s, Compton’s, and 3rd District Supervisor Dawn Ortiz-Legg’s. Gibson and others also highlighted efforts by the Republican Party to undermine elections by propagating false claims that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump. “In my view, there’s only one reason to invite the interview of unqualified candidates and that’s to subvert the election process in this county,” Gibson said. Compton said she was in a particularly tough position given that one of the proposed candidates, Jenkins, had previously represented her in a 2018 lawsuit she filed against the Clerk-Recorder’s Office, where she tried to stop certain ballots with unresolved signatures from

San Luis Obispo County’s search for its next top elections official continued down its bumpy path on Oct. 5, when county supervisors voted to interview the three committee-recommended finalists for the job. The 3-2 vote came amid accusations from two supervisors—as well as some citizens and clerk-recorder applicants—that top county officials ignored a board directive that asked the committee to forward seven candidates and to not consider prior election experience as a prerequisite. “I guess every once in a while our motions will just be ignored and that’s how we’re going to govern this county,” 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold said at the meeting. “How do I justify that to my constituents?” On Sept. 20, the selection committee of five supervisor-appointed volunteers (including two retired municipal clerks) voted unanimously to send acting SLO County Clerk-Recorder Helen Nolan, Santa Barbara County Elections Division Manager Elaina Cano, and former Yolo County Chief Deputy Clerk-Recorder Jeffrey Barry to the board for final consideration. A handful of other candidates were discussed but did not receive majority support from the committee. At the board’s Sept. 28 meeting, Arnold expressed frustration with the limited pool of candidates and made a motion to agendize a discussion about adding more candidates to the mix. On Oct. 5, after a week of fierce community

biggest impact for students in our classrooms.” King added that the union often disagrees with board members on other issues, but doesn’t see a recall as the way to get things done. “We’re always trying to field candidates to run against board members, because competitive elections make them more accountable,” King said. “The recall group often paints us as cheerleaders for the board, but we work with them to do better.” Δ —Malea Martin being counted during a tight election. Compton’s choice for the selection committee, Charles Bell, also represented her in that lawsuit. Although the law wouldn’t have required it, Compton said she would’ve recused herself from voting for Jenkins as clerk-recorder. She acknowledged that the appearance of a conflict of interest played a role in her voting down Arnold’s motion on Oct. 5. “It just complicates everything, and I was trying to do the right thing,” Compton said on Oct. 6. “I thought it’d be perceived as corrupted if we then threw in personal candidates. … I don’t think I made anybody happy yesterday.” First District Supervisor John Peschong supported the request for more candidates. He dismissed residents’ suspicions of an ulterior agenda and decried emails that called him a Nazi and fascist. “It really upsets me,” Peschong said. “We’re talking about candidates that are going to come in a open and transparent process.” Compton agreed with Arnold that “there were definitely screw-ups” in county staff’s administering of the selection process, particularly from Chief Administrative Officer Wade Horton and County Counsel Rita Neal, who headed the selection committee meetings. “They didn’t follow the directions,” Compton said. Ortiz-Legg defended staff and said the board’s target of seven candidates “was merely a suggestion.” She fought back tears when talking about the ways she’s seen staff criticized and NEWS continued page 6

“demoralized” through the process. “These people are really just trying to keep balance here on this crazy chaos that’s happening,” Ortiz-Legg said. “In some ways, changing the narrative of all this is almost a self-fulfilling prophecy of distrust and destroy and creating chaos, and that’s what we don’t need.” Supervisors will interview the three candidates for clerk-recorder on Oct. 12.

SLO chamber encourages familyfriendliness in the workplace

San Luis Obispo’s Chamber of Commerce wants at least 100 local businesses to think of the children. The chamber announced the launch of the Family-Friendly Workplace Accelerator Program on Oct. 4, which identifies the importance of creating a welcoming environment for employees taking care of children and family members. The chamber partnered with First5 SLO, an independent agency supporting children and families, on the program. Helping 100 businesses incorporate at least one family-friendly policy is one of their two goals. “This of course is beyond what is already required by California state law. [The second goal], to work with the business community so that at least 50 more working parents of young children will have access to employer-supported child care in SLO County,” said Christina Lefevre Latner, the chamber’s workforce development manager. SLO County stands to gain from this inclusion, too. Accommodating familyfriendly policies in local workplaces can fatten gross regional product by $108 million each year, a Cuesta Collegefunded economic study discovered. “It is important to know that familyfriendly workplaces can take many different forms. These include flexible work arrangement options, which can range from occasional changes in schedule, for example, to take a child to the doctor, to alternate schedules, and compressed workweeks, or job-sharing and part-time work opportunities. Location flexibility, or telecommuting, which has become very common for many during the COVID-19 pandemic, is also a great option when feasible,” Lefevre Latner said. The Cuesta economic report was a child care study that spotlighted the high cost of living in SLO County, which created a need for families to work so much that child care providers were often prevented from looking after their own children. Lefevre Latner said though it may not be feasible to offer onsite child care services in every workplace, multiple low- and no-cost policies exist for businesses to be more sympathetic. She also said that businesses could take their pick of policy options from a Central Coast-tailored tool kit. The policies should support parents of young children, allowing them to remain in the workforce.

The accelerator program is currently funded for three years. Bruce Gibson, the 2nd District Supervisor and First 5 Commission chair, said he hopes that the program will boost diversity in the workforce. “With the help of the Family-Friendly Workplace Accelerator Program, we can get more parents back to work with peace of mind and stimulate our local economy,” he said in a chamber press release. —Bulbul Rajagopal

Paso school district encourages parents to visit classrooms

community member or a school board member, their place is not to evaluate what the teacher is doing in the classroom,” Lynett said. “Their place is to see what’s going on in the classroom and get an idea of it, but they are not evaluators of those teachers.” Haley also said the district is making an effort to include parents and students, if appropriate, in its curriculum review process, based on feedback from when the district added an ethnic studies course earlier this year. When a teacher requests a new piece of core curriculum (like a textbook), and it’s approved by teachers in their department or grade level, site administrators are the next to review it. Then, the teacher brings it to a curriculum council. This is where Haley said the district will include parents and students when it can. Council feedback will then be passed to the superintendent before a community notification goes out. The school board ultimately approves it. “Nothing is really significantly different there from the current model,” Haley said, “except that we do intend to include more perspectives, based on feedback from the process with ethnic studies.” —Malea Martin

After getting a peek into their kids’ virtual classrooms during distance learning, some parents still want to be a fly on the wall now that school’s back in person. The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District already has protocols in place for class visitation, but the district’s school board recently discussed it after questions were raised about the public’s right to the classroom. “Nationally, statewide, locally, parents during the shutdown, both the distance learning and the hybrid, saw [classrooms] firsthand from their living rooms for the first time probably since they were in school themselves,” District Superintendent Curt Dubost told New Times. “They were watching classes being Cayucos gets taught, and a lot of what they saw was approval to apply positive.

TOUGH TIMES Cultural taboos and language resources with limited publicity make it difficult to report domestic violence for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community in SLO County.

Scared to speak SLO County’s small Asian American population struggles with cultural stigma and language hurdles to report domestic violence BY BULBUL RAJAGOPAL

S

an Luis Obispo County racked up more domestic violence reports in 2020 than in 2019, but asking for help is a cumbersome process for nonEnglish speaking communities. The California Department of Justice’s Open Data portal showed that SLO County’s law enforcement agencies received 763 domestic violence-related calls for service last year. In 2019, they received 601 such alerts. In spite of the increased number of domestic abuse calls to law enforcement’s service lines in 2020, local shelter groups like Lumina Alliance experienced a worrying lull in calls for safety. “We had a long moment where there were significantly less people accessing services, because people were stuck at home with people harming them,” said Christina Kaviani, Lumina’s prevention and education director. “They don’t have any free space to call, they can’t leave the house. We were only doing virtual appointments and there wasn’t a space for them to confidentially reach out.” Calls eventually trickled in, but at least one community remained relatively quiet.

Kaviani said that her agency didn’t see an influx of calls from Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the county. She said it could be due to cultural taboos, language barriers, and the small number of AAPI residents in SLO County. AAPI makes up only 3.7 percent of the county, according to the Unity Committee report from the SLO County Sheriff’s Office. “Definitely, there’s a cultural aspect to reporting. Males report less, Asian Americans report less from what we’ve seen for decades and decades because of a cultural stigma around violence. Sex and sexual assault is not something you vocalize and talk about openly,” Kaviani said. “It’s something we see within Latine and Hispanic cultures as well, there’s a lot of silence there. If we can’t talk about the healthy, good stuff [like sexuality] then often the harm is not being talked about as well.” Kaviani also teaches a Gender and Women Studies class at Cal Poly. She credited the university as the most ethnically diverse space in the county, and often talks about cultural stigmas with her many Asian American students. “SLO is a harder place to discuss it

because we’re kinda secluded a bit, from what I know. I’ve lived here for 14 years. In San Luis Obispo, it’s really limiting, you walk around and you’re not seeing a big demographic of brown, Black, and different colored folks,” she said. Shirley Luo, the resource center coordinator of Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence (APIGBV) said that the AAPI diaspora speaks more than 70 languages plus regional dialects. “We’ve seen over and over that survivors are re-traumatized through this process because they’re unable to give voice to their experience, or unable to express their needs. Other times, lack of language access becomes the thing that stops them from reaching out to police or services,” Luo said. Though Luo didn’t have details about SLO County specifically, she said that even cosmopolitan cities with a thriving Asian American population like San Francisco face language access problems. Data that can be helpful in understanding trends for Asian American issues is often scarce. The SLO Police Department told New Times that it doesn’t track domestic violence, sexual assaults, and sexual abuse by race. Language barriers and the absence of a common definition of domestic violence across Asian American subgroups aggravate gaps in data. The Oaklandbased APIGBV’s “best statistics” on intimate partner abuse in California’s Asian American community is from 2007. “A big part of the problem is that large studies are often conducted only in English and Spanish, leaving out survivors who don’t speak those languages. The AAPI community also holds a lot of stigma around DV [domestic violence], meaning survivors are less likely to disclose their experience to researchers,” Luo said. “Plus, many AAPI survivors might not even consider their experience DV, as defined in the Western sense. All this together means that AAPI numbers, when they’re even included, look low, when in reality we know the incidence of violence is much higher.” Lumina, SLOPD, and the county Sheriff’s Office use remote interpretation and translation services when interacting with domestic violence survivors who need it. The two law enforcement agencies use the state-funded Voiance Interpreter Network, while Lumina uses Alta Language Services. Lumina also works to connect survivors and advocates with law enforcement agencies. The nonprofit even provides

yearly training sessions on interacting with survivors and taking them to medical exams, though Kaviani said she wished the training happened more frequently. Both Lumina and law enforcement groups depend on each other to help survivors in the most “traumainformed way.” SLOPD’s neighborhood outreach manager, Christine Wallace, said that their first priority is to connect survivors to bilingual officers. If none are available, they reach out to some of the 51 certified bilingual staff members from the Sheriff’s Office or allied agencies like Lumina and Transitions-Mental Health Association. Using Voiance’s round-the-clock service is the third alternative. Wallace said that SLOPD officers and detectives receive extensive training on balancing information collection with sensitive interaction. “Our officers come into this profession because they want to help people and make a difference in the community. We don’t train compassion, we hire folks that already have it,” she said. SLOPD currently does not have a language access plan, which is a structured scheme that APIGBV recommends law enforcement agencies to adopt. The plan not only details how a law enforcement agency offers translation services but also accounts for how more community members can know about it. Wallace said that the SLOPD wants to learn more about it. Kaviani also said that law enforcement agencies and hospitals should improve their advertising efforts for translation and interpretative services. “There’s some work there that probably could be smoothed out for monolingual speakers in San Luis Obispo, as far as hospital and law enforcement agencies [are concerned], and for it to be very clear that you can come to these agencies, and we’ll get translations for you. Like, it’s not a barrier if you don’t speak English,” Kavieani said. “That’s not publicized and it doesn’t feel easy.” Kaviani recommended that service providers reduce fear by making their resources more accessible. “The most important thing [is that] people can communicate and feel understood, and not disrespected and made to feel strange, because then [they’re] going to leave and not follow through with the [crime or medical] report,” she said. ∆ Reach Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal at brajagopal@newtimesslo.com.

Doctors say a drop in breast cancer scans last year could have repercussions on diagnoses for BY MALEA MARTIN years to come

W

hile breast cancer comes as a surprise to most who are diagnosed, some patients know their risk ahead of time. This is the case for a patient of Dr. Colleen O’Kelly Priddy, a breast surgical oncologist and the medical director of Mission Hope’s breast center in Santa Maria. The patient carries a genetic mutation that significantly increases her chances of breast cancer, so she made the choice to get a precautionary mastectomy. “She was scheduled to have her regular screening mammogram, and then right after that she was scheduled to have her prophylactic mastectomies,” O’Kelly Priddy said. But when COVID-19 hit, everything got pushed back for several months. “Once she finally went back in and got her mammogram, she actually had a cancer,” O’Kelly Priddy said. “Instead of being able to just have her risk-reducing mastectomies, she ended up having to have chemotherapy, then have the mastectomy, and then have radiation afterwards. It turned into a much bigger deal.” While the genetic mutation that this patient has is rare, it is highly recommended that every person with breasts over a certain age get screened annually for breast cancer. But scans on the Central Coast plummeted last year, and now doctors are seeing more late-stage diagnoses as a result. “I have seen this in my own practice

with delay in diagnosis due to COVID illness and women not coming in last year for mammograms or exams,” said Dr. Rosa Choi, breast surgeon with Ridley-Tree Cancer Center in Santa Barbara County. “I did as much telemedicine last year as possible and picked up cancers when women reported having lumps.” Prognosis for breast cancer tends to be better when it hasn’t spread to the lymph nodes yet, but Choi said the medical community is seeing more of that. “Reports from [the] United Kingdom and Canada suggest that there is a six month delay in diagnosis with women coming in with larger tumors and more node positive disease,” Choi said. “This may translate into [an] increase in breast cancer mortality by 30 percent in the next five to 10 years.” Kitt Kelly, oncology patient navigator at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, said he has anecdotally witnessed more patients with late-stage breast cancer. “There is no escape of accepting that, without screening, all the findings are later than they should be,” Kelly said. “If you have a breast cancer that’s growing, and you wait 18 months, you’re already way behind.” With early findings, the chance of curing breast cancer is 94 percent, Kelly said. But with a late finding, chances of curing it drop rapidly, “with a lot of suffering along treatment.”

GET SCANNED This 3D Imaging Machine at Selma Carlson Diagnostic Center in San Luis Obispo is used to detect breast cancer.

“This is not something that needs to happen,” Kelly said. “This is something that would not happen if the person [got their annual mammogram].” Even before March 2020, doctors faced barriers in getting people to come in for their annual scans. The pandemic only compounded those challenges. “When life is good and busy, and people are healthy and asymptomatic, they tend to put screening at the bottom of their list,” Kelly said.

Others avoid their annual mammograms because of radiation concerns. “I reassure women that the dose of screening mammogram is equivalent to three months of ambient radiation from the environment, so it is safe to get mammograms every year,” Choi said. Income can also discourage someone from getting their annual screening, but Kelly emphasized that most medical insurance covers mammograms, and for those who are uninsured, there are options. “Throughout the entire state of California, there is a program called Every Woman Counts,” he said. “It’s run by Medicare. You can walk in or make a simple appointment and get your mammogram, and your care would be the same standard as those who have insurance. People think that because it’s free, and without a written order by a primary care physician, that somehow they will get a lesser care. That’s not true.” According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer screenings are optional from ages 40 to 44. Once someone turns 45, scans are recommended every year. For ages 55 and older, mammograms are recommended once every two years, though annual screening is still an option. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tenet Health is extending its hours to Saturdays at two of its diagnostic centers in October to encourage people to get their mammograms. At Selma Carlson Diagnostic Center in San Luis Obispo, patients can snag appointments on Oct. 9, 16, 23, and 30. At Templeton Imaging, appointments are now available for Oct. 9, 16, and 23. ∆ Staff Writer Malea Martin can be reached at mmartin@newtimesslo.com.

Prevention by education Local youth create zine focused on healthy relationships, how to stop intimate partner violence before it starts BY PETER JOHNSON

W

hat does a community without violence mean to us?” The prompt is written across a two-page spread. Answers displayed in thought bubbles beneath it represent the visions of San Luis Obispo County teens. “A safe space, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, ability, or background,” one reads. “Violence is responded to by community members and we take care of each other,” another says. It’s just one section in a much larger zine (a DIY-style magazine) created and designed by local youth and recently published ahead of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The 32-page publication, Working Toward a Violence Free Community, weaves together tips, thoughts, tools, art, and prompts, which touch on subjects like consent, boundaries, healthy relationships, helping friends in trouble, and standing up to violence when you see it. “We all got together and wrote down a bunch of ideas we had about pages, mostly concepts to talk about specifically,” explained Kayla-Jade Cooper, a 17-yearold Arroyo Grande High School student and one of the zine’s seven co-creators. “And we put them all in a spreadsheet and each of us got to kind of pick, ‘I’d like to focus on this one and this one.’ It’s

something we all worked really hard on.” Cooper and her peers made the zine while volunteering with Lumina Alliance—formerly RISE SLO and Stand Strong—for its Close to Home initiative, which undertakes communitybased projects to raise awareness about intimate partner violence. “Our whole premise of our group is we want to listen to what the community needs,” said Arti Kothari, a prevention educator with Lumina Alliance. “We really try to hear our peers and other people in the community and figure out what’s something that would be helpful.” This year’s volunteers felt that a zine could channel messages of education and prevention, not just awareness. Lumina is reframing October as not just Domestic Violence Awareness Month, but Domestic Violence Action Month. And the zine’s authors took the shift to heart. “I think people are aware that sexual violence is happening, but it’s not enough to just know what’s going on,” Cooper said. “When it comes to the best way to try to stop domestic violence, it’s prevention and education for people to stay safe and to also—if they see something, how to handle that situation and stop it from happening.” Working Toward a Violence Free Community enlightens and educates

through its evocative artwork, its discussions around tough topics like consent and boundaries, and its simple but helpful guides on those topics: “Consent is FRIES! Freely given, Reversible, Informed, Enthusiastic, Specific/Sober.” “The youth did all of the writing, creating, designing, art—everything,” Kothari said. “The art was actually sourced from students from SLO High School. It was a partnership with one of the art teachers.” Interspersed throughout the zine, the art pieces are unique meditations on the theme of sexual and domestic violence. A quote from the artist accompanies each piece. One piece by 17-year-old Linnaea Marks features a photo of a purse with its contents spilled out. Overlaid in purple are drawings of all the items that women often carry to protect themselves, like mace and an emergency whistle. “I wanted to show how much lighter that purse would be without sexual violence,” Marks says in her quote. Another, by 15-year-old Carmen Joines, shows two photos next to one another. In one, a person is grabbing another by the wrist; in the other, the person is holding the other’s hand. The words “violence is not affection” are written across them. “I created this piece to describe how in relationships people often misinterpret aggressive and violent acts as affection,” Joines says. “I created it because people have a hard time recognizing it and breaking away from cycles of violence.” Working Toward a Violence Free Community is available online in both English and Spanish. Lumina has also

distributed print copies to local cafes, like Kin Coffee Bar and Skipper’s Brew Coffee House. Any person or organization interested in getting hard copies at no cost can email education@luminaalliance.org. “So far it’s had really good reception in the community,” Kothari said. Cooper said she hopes the zine can inspire conversations throughout SLO County about the subjects it tackles. And she hopes it sends a message to both youth and adults that her generation is committed to ending the cycles of intimate partner violence. “We want to let people know that we as youth are paying attention and we see the things that are happening in our community,” Cooper said. “It’s important for other young people to see because we have a lot of potential and power when it comes to making change. All we have to do is just start.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Responding to high fire risk PG&E’s enhanced power line safety settings have led to a 50 percent decrease in potential ignitions

T

he threat of wildfire in California and other Western states continues to grow. Severe drought conditions, dry fuels, and rising temperatures are driving unprecedented increases in the potential risk for wildfires. To combat this increased risk, PG&E is continuing to evolve our wildfire prevention efforts for the safety of our customers and communities. One of the new steps that we have taken is adjusting the power line safety settings of protection devices on the grid to automatically turn off electricity more quickly if the lines experience an issue. These can include tree branches, mylar balloons, and even, unfortunately, wildlife striking equipment. By adjusting the sensitivity of these settings, power shuts off faster, reducing wildfire risk. Since these updated settings were implemented in late July 2020, PG&E has seen a decrease of more than 50 percent in ignitions that could have resulted in catastrophic wildfires, as compared to the prior three-year average. While these settings make our electric system safer, they have resulted in more frequent, longer-duration outages for some of you. We have heard loud and clear the burden these outages are causing and that we must improve. Here are some of the steps we are taking right now for our customers: • Fine-tuning the sensitivity of each protection device to match the wildfire risk on each circuit. • Improving communication between equipment to automatically limit outage size. • Enhancing restoration patrols to restore power more quickly when it goes out. • Revamping the information that we are able to share with customers during an outage. We recognize the hardship that these outages our causing, but we also know this safety measure is working. On Sept. 7, a PG&E technician responding to an outage found an oak tree that had broken and fallen on a power line, taking down two poles and the power line with it. This occurred in an area at a high risk for wildfire, with difficult access for firefighters if a wildfire had started. While we can’t predict where or when this might occur, community safety must come first. As we work to make improvements to

our system, there are programs available to support customers. For example, some customers may qualify for our portable battery and generator rebate programs. Visit pge.com/wildfiresafety to learn more. There, you can also find more information about why we’re raising the sensitivity on our electric equipment in high fire threat areas. Just click on the tab titled, “Learn about enhanced power line safety settings.” We want to thank our customers for your partnership and understanding. We are committed to getting better and making our system safer for our hometowns while improving the reliability of our electric service. If you have any questions, please email us at wildfiresafety@pge.com. ∆ Teresa Alvarado is the vice president of PG&E’s South Bay and Central Coast Region.

Letters Stop politicizing county government

Rather than taking a stand for good government practices, the majority of the SLO County Board of Supervisors sadly plays the political card on major issues. For example, after the board’s own handpicked selection committee put forward the three candidates qualified by experience from the 44 applicants for the role of interim county clerk-recorder, the board majority wanted more candidates to consider. Why did it want to consider candidates who aren’t qualified? This issue is strikingly similar to the decision by the board majority to discount an independent analysis documenting the added costs of forming the county’s own integrated waste management organization. Why? The Integrated Waste Management Authority worked for regional solutions and didn’t kowtow to the board majority’s own agenda. Regardless of our personal political persuasions, we need a county government that rises above politics and votes for good governance. We need governance that everyone can trust to make the right decisions and get things done. We can only hope that the constituents who have elected the board majority appreciate the bad precedents that rabid political agendas instill in county government. We all deserve fair and efficient service delivered in a nonpartisan way.

Will we never learn?

I

t has been said repeatedly that those who fail to learn the lessons of the past are doomed to repeat its mistakes, so here we are again. I remember the 1970s, the shameful ending of the Vietnam War, the loss of American credibility, the inflation, gas lines, and endless prognostications of environmental doom. If you haven’t noticed, it’s beginning to feel like familiar ground. In 1972, the communist North Vietnamese launched a major conventional offensive, attempting to conquer our South Vietnamese ally by brute force using tanks, artillery, and hundreds of thousands of troops crossing the northern and western borders. It was harrowing at first but eventually the president unleashed American air power and the communist offensive was smashed, so much so that we might have decisively defeated them if our forces were not halted by our secretary of state’s desire to have a diplomatic solution. That isn’t my version but post-war comments made by communist generals mystified as to why we didn’t finish them off when we had the chance. In 1974 the American Congress reflected an overwhelming Democrat and anti-war victory. Their first order of business was to cut off all military support to South Vietnam, even when the North launched another offensive on March 30, 1975. President Ford pleaded with Congress to allow him to intervene but Congress refused. On April 30, 1975, a chaotic evacuation of South Vietnamese ensued as communist tanks smashed through the gates of the South Vietnamese Presidential Palace, ending the war by brute force. In Cambodia, the communist Khmer Rouge completed their conquest and proceeded to empty the cities of people, forcing millions into the countryside for forced labor. The Khmer Rouge were ideological fanatics, paranoid, ignorant, suspicious of intellectuals, and vicious—wearing eye glasses could get you executed on the spot. Over a four-year period they executed nearly 2 million of the country’s 5 million inhabitants. America wasn’t in a particularly happy place at that time; inflation was building as were interest rates. Interest rates climbed to more than 20 percent, and inflation hit around 15 percent annually. Inflation was eventually curbed in the 1980s by harsh economic policy and a lot of economic pain for years. In the meantime, the Arabs were quite angry with us for our support of Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, nearly lost by Israel after a surprise attack by Egypt and Syria. Israel considered using nuclear weapons to halt the Arab offensive but the president ordered a massive resupply of the Israeli military, enabling them to defeat the Arab armies in the nick of time. Arab nations retaliated, quadrupling the price of oil overnight; gas went to 50 cents a gallon in short order; some thought it might even hit a dollar a gallon. Yes, those were the good old days, if we only knew it. Gas was briefly rationed, block-long gas lines formed and fights broke out at gas stations. In 1979, an Islamic revolution swept America’s ally, Iran, expelling the Shah of Iran and seizing the American Embassy.

Sixty-plus American diplomats were blindfolded and held hostage for over a year. A rescue attempt by American commandos spectacularly failed as the rescue force was unable to reach Tehran; a deadly crash at a rendezvous point left eight Americans dead. The hostages remained in captivity for nearly another year. Twenty years after a catastrophic attack on New York and Washington, we observe the fruits of a failed national strategy with nearly 10,000 military and civilian dead. At home we panic over imagined natural catastrophes that haven’t happened, ignoring natural history while taking counsel of our fears. Drought plagues the Southwest again as populations have doubled and fools continue to develop unsustainable locales. Did you know that in 1861-62 an “atmospheric river” dumped extraordinary amounts of rain on California, flooding the California Central Valley to a depth of 20 feet from Redding to Riverside County? The inland sea was 300 miles long and 70 miles wide. No greenhouse gas was required. It was followed by a drought that finished off the Spanish Rancho system. Geological records indicate this type of weather is the norm for the Southwest along with prolonged drought, sometimes decades in duration. Our political leaders today are cooking up schemes to bankrupt the Republic, spending trillions of dollars we don’t have, which Democrats claim will cost nothing. Inflation reminiscent of the 1970s looms with gas prices approaching $5 a gallon, as Biden dismantles the energy sector of the economy. Democrats are proposing enormous tax increases on the middle and working classes, about $2,000 or more a year per family, adding 80,000 IRS agents to harass small businesses. The southern border has collapsed as 2 million migrants are expected this year and endless more next year. Our civil liberties are threatened as speech is censored by non-accountable tech companies, and parents are told it’s not their place to determine what their children are taught in school. Yet, we continue to reelect the same, selfappointed “anointed ones” to office. We haven’t learned anything. ∆ Al Fonzi had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

Safety measures are still important. Dear Valued Community Members, Since the onset of the pandemic, French Hospital Medical Center has implemented a number of measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. The coronavirus is still very much with us, and we urge community members to continue to take the precautions necessary to protect themselves and their family, friends, and neighbors. As health care leaders in San Luis Obispo County, we are encouraged by the many individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine, and who continue to mask and social distance when necessary. These very important precautions will help safeguard our community and keep us on the right track. However, we are incredibly concerned that there are some that are still hesitant to receive the vaccine, and who are not following the mask mandate set forth by County Public Health to slow the spread of the virus. This virus is still present - devastating families and overwhelming health care professionals. The delta variant does not discriminate; we have seen this firsthand. Our staff is exhausted, and are becoming disheartened to care for desperately ill people suffering from a now preventable illness. Such care diverts precious resources, consumes time and expertise from patients experiencing cardiac, cancer or other emergent or chronic issues. As a community, we can do better! We implore our community to follow the, proven effective, COVID safety protocols, encourage everyone to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and to please follow the current mask mandate. For the vaccinated and unvaccinated, wear your mask indoors, or outdoors in crowded spaces when six feet of separation isn’t possible. If you are hesitant or have questions, speak with your trusted health care professional to alleviate any concerns. Our number one priority is to ensure the health of the communities we serve. Stay safe and be well,

Alan Iftiniuk President and CEO French Hospital Medical Center

Opinion

The Shredder

Cube of rubes

I

f you want to see how to take a moderate kerfuffle and make it into an exponentially bigger throbbing headache for everyone involved, look no further than the SLO County Board of Supervisors’ handling of former Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong’s departure and the board’s attempt to find a replacement. The obvious choice was to appoint Deputy Clerk-Recorder Helen Nolan, who knows the department, has experience, and has already been named acting clerk-recorder. After all, there’s an election in five short months that could determine who will win the next four-year clerk-recorder term, so why make things needlessly complicated? Appointing Nolan would be the least expensive, most prudent course of action. But this is SLO County, baby, where persnickety partisan politics and posturing are de rigueur. The five-member Board of Supervisors decided to open the position up to every Tom, Dick, and Harriet interested in applying. There were literally only three requirements: Applicants must be 18 or older, have established SLO County residency by the time they’re appointed, and be registered to vote at the time of the appointment. Election experience? Nah! All told, 44 applicants applied for the position. No, pink-clad Los Angeles icon Angelyne wasn’t one of them. She only wanted to be governor. Anywho, the board then appointed a five-

member committee to peruse through the 44 applications, whittle the list down to seven, and present it to the board. Each board member was allowed to select one committee member. Fair is fair! For the record, conservative 1st District Supe John Peschong chose his own legislative aide, Vicki Janssen, because I guess he didn’t want to think too hard about it and apparently doesn’t have enough for her to do. Liberal Bruce Gibson of the 2nd District picked former SLO City Clerk Lee Price. Moderate liberal Dawn Ortiz-Legg, 3rd District, chose former SLO City Manager Ken Hampian. Conservative 4th District supe Lynn Compton tapped Chuck Bell—an attorney who along with attorney Stew Jenkins helped Compton sue Tommy Gong over signature irregularities on ballots cast during her 2018 re-election bid. Conservative Debbie Arnold, 5th District, picked former Atascadero City Clerk Marcia Torgerson. Sure, there’s some potential partisanship in there, but so far, so good, right? All they had to do was come up with seven names. When the board convened on Oct. 5, the conservative board members expressed their dismay that the committee’s list was only three

names long. How. Dare. They. Defy. The. Trumpites’ accusations of fraud and a Board’s.

Then, They picked the three candidates with some supervisors didn’t like what the actual election experience. Obviously committee they chose decided.

BY GLEN STARKEY

Too many choices Welcome to the biggest music week since the pandemic began

A

week this packed feels like the good old days when every Thursday we’d have to take inventory of the options and make some hard choices about which shows we were going to see and which we’d have to pass on. I’m going to break it down venue by venue, and you’re going to have to decide how far your time and money will take you.

Vina Robles Amphitheatre

Los Ángeles Azules kick of Vina Robles’ week on Friday, Oct. 8 (8 p.m.; all ages; $50 to $70 plus service charges at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). After a year without a concert, the recently named Premio Lo Nuestro—Cumbia Legacy Award-winning ensemble has embarked on their 40 Años Tour, which will take them to 25 venues, including Paso. Expect classics such as “Cómo Te Voy a Olvidar” and “El Listón de tu Pelo,” as well as music from their 40-year career. Multi-platinum Danish band Volbeat plays Vina on Saturday, Oct. 9 (8 p.m.; all ages; $49.50 to $69.50 plus service charges at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). They’re on their Wait A Minute … Let’s Tour tour to promote their new video for “Wait A Minute My Girl,” a bopping postpunk pop track that will get you hopping. Legendary punk outfits Flogging Molly and Violent Femmes share the bill at Vina on Sunday, Oct. 10 (6:30 p.m.; all ages; $45 to $65 plus service charges at vinaroblesamphitheatre. com), with Me First and The Gimme Gimmes and Thick opening. Yeah, four bands for your moshing pleasure. The Femmes, a personal fav in the ’80s, are celebrating their 40th anniversary, and you’ll hopefully hear classics such as “Blister in the Sun,” “American Music,” and “Gone Daddy Gone.” More punk awaits when CelticAmerican heroes Dropkick Murphys and Berkeley-based Rancid play Vina on Wednesday, Oct. 13 (7 p.m.; all ages; $45 to $50 plus service charges at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com), with The Bronx opening. This is the first time since 2017 that The Murphs and Rancid have hit the road together. Finally, rock acts Dirty Heads and Sublime with Rome play Vina on Thursday, Oct. 14 and Friday, Oct. 15 (7 p.m.; all ages; $49.50 to $75 plus service charges at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com), with Hirie opening. They’re calling it their High and Mighty Tour. Sublime With Rome is promoting their 2019 album Blessings and its singles “Wicked Heart” and “Light On.” Like Sublime, Dirty Heads mixes hip-hop, reggae, and rock, all delivered with their laid back Cali attitude.

Fremont Theater

The Fremont kicks off their week with reggae, ska, surf, pop, and punk acts The Expendables and Ballyhoo! this Thursday, Oct. 7 (8 p.m.; $18 plus fees at seetickets.us). I almost can’t believe The Expendables have been at it for 18 years. I still think of the Santa Cruz band as newcomers, but they’re veterans now. A three-band punk show with headliner Pennywise comes to the Fremont on Saturday, Oct. 9, with Deviates and The Line opening (7 p.m.; $33 plus fees at seetickets.us). The Hermosa Beach headliner is a real California institution—a band that delivers “fastpaced anthems expertly engineered to inspire radical change, personal empowerment, relentless hijinks, and reckless fast times,” as their bio notes. Expect hits like “Same Old Story,” “Fuck Authority,” “Alien,” “Homesick,” and “Bro Hymn.” Stripped-down Americana roots heroes The Wood Brothers play the Fremont on Thursday, Oct. 14 (9 p.m.; $25 plus fees at seetickets.us), with Kat Wright opening. They write beautiful, literate, often melancholy songs, and their most recent, Kingdom In My Mind, is amazing. “Everyone has these little kingdoms in their minds,” Chris Wood said in press materials, “and the songs on this album all explore the ways we find peace in them. They look at how we deal with our dreams and our regrets and our fears and our loves. They look at the stories we tell ourselves and the ways we balance the darkness and the light.”

Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents

Numbskull and Good Medicine start their week with some ripping bluegrass at Morro Bay’s The Siren. Al Lee & Blue Summit plays Friday, Oct. 8 (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $15 presale at eventbrite.com or $20 at the door), with local bluegrass up-and-comer Miss Leo opening. Led by singer-songwriter and mandolinist AJ Lee, Blue Summit has become the darling of the North Bay bluegrass scene, drawing influences from swing, folk, blues, jazz, country, soul, and rock. Grammy-nominated performer Janiva Magness is next up at The Siren on Wednesday, Oct. 13 (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $22 presale at eventbrite. com or $25 at the door). She’s touring in support of Change in the Weather: Janiva Magness Sings John Fogerty, which came out last month on Blue Élan Records and reframes 12 songs “curated from the Creedence Clearwater Revival leader’s catalog in Magness’ soaring, soulcentered style,” press materials explain. Expect to hear “Lodi,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Don’t You Wish It Was True,” and others. “Kirk Pasich, the founder of Blue Élan, suggested that we record ‘Long As I Can See the Light,’” Magness explained, “and

ROOTS Stripped-down Americana heroes The Wood Brothers play the Fremont on Oct. 14.

I loved adapting and singing that song, so it was a natural evolution to Change in the Weather. John Fogerty is a brilliant writer. His melodies are big and rich and provide a real highway into the heart of his songs, which is wonderful for me as a singer, and their backbone is his storytelling, which is spare and direct, and absolutely American in its imagery and themes. And those themes endure.” Numbskull and Good Medicine close their week with super fun pop punk act The Queers at The Siren next Thursday, Oct. 14 (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $10 presale at eventbrite.com or $12 at the door), with local act Pancho and Wizards opening. Expect Queers classics such as “Can’t Stop Farting,” “Born To Do Dishes,” and “I Didn’t Get Invited To The Prom.” If you dig the Ramones, you’ll dig The Queers.

SLO Brew Rock

Grateful Dead tribute act Grateful Shred plays SLO Brew Rock this Thursday, Oct. 7 and Friday, Oct. 8 (7:30 p.m.; 18-and-older; $27 plus service fees at ticketweb.com). These guys recreate the sound and the vibe of the iconic jam band. Indie folk pop act Whitney plays the Rock on Monday, Oct. 11 (7 p.m.; all ages; $35 plus service fees at ticketweb. com), with Renée Reed opening. Whitney formed in a Chicago apartment

in 2014, “tackling songs by the Everly Brothers, Allen Toussaint, and more played,” according to their bio. In 2016, they began releasing their own material but continued to offer select covers like NRBQ’s “Magnet” and Neil Young’s “On the Way Home.” (((folkYEAH!)))) and SLO Brew Live present the Cass McCombs Band on Thursday, Oct. 14 (7 p.m.; all ages; $25 plus service fees at ticketweb.com).

Clark Center for the Performing Arts

Arroyo Grande’s favorite auditorium is back in action next Thursday, Oct. 14, when Led Zeppelin tribute act Led Zepagain plays the Clark Center (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $39 to $44 at clarkcenter. org/shows/led-zepagain/). “It’s as close as you’ll ever get to the real deal!” said Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. “From the high-energy electric classics to the beautiful acoustic works, you will be mesmerized as Led Zepagain resurrects Page’s soaring guitar leads, Jones’ brilliant keyboard passages, Bonham’s trademark pounding rhythms, and the signature Robert Plant vocals,” according to press materials. “As you experience immortal classics ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ ‘Immigrant Song,’ ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ and ‘Black Dog,’ you’ll understand why Led Zepagain has become highly regarded as the most authentic representation of Led Zeppelin in the world today.”

Enduring appeal Leather artist and designer Emma Thieme makes one-of-a-kind creations

T

here’s something about leather—its durability, its unique blemishes, its primal appeal to the ancient human deep inside us all. It’s the sort of material that becomes an heirloom—your grandfather’s World War II bomber jacket, the small clutch your mother carried to her prom, the scarred and battered over-the-shoulder satchel that held important papers a lifetime ago and still will a lifetime from now. That’s part of the appeal for Emma Thieme, who owns the Cayucos boutique shop Maven Leather + Design, where she makes and sells her original leather creations as well as furniture, jewelry, painting, and ceramics produced by local artists. Thieme is a newcomer to the area, having opened her storefront at 146 N. Ocean Ave. almost a year ago. Originally from Maine, she drove across the country in her van with her dog, hitting arts and crafts shows, festivals, and farmers markets along the way. “I was just trying out the traveling artist lifestyle for the winter—Maine kind of shuts down,” Thieme said. “I had a little store there at the time, so I got into my van with my dog and drove.” She packed up her sewing machine, tools, and materials, and she traveled from one coast to the other. “I was interested in seeing how far I could go doing that. I wanted to see if I could find my way to a new kind of opportunity. I was a little bit—I don’t want to say stale, but in Maine I was feeling really burned out.” Let’s back up a second because Thieme’s path to fine leatherwork is an interesting one. “My mother taught me how to sew, so I grew up sewing with her, and we made all of our

.J. Novak presents us with five different stories from banal to engrossing: In “The Ballad of Jesse Wheeler,” for instance, a pop star promises sex to the valedictorian of his alma mater high school therefore upping the overall GPA of the graduating class. In my personal favorite and arguably the most poignant episode showing the aftereffects of gun violence, “Moment of Silence,” the protagonist tricks a gun lobby into a PR nightmare. The Premise acts as a book of short stories put on screen, each tale with its own moral takeaway. Novak is a funny guy—a great writer who’s put out myriads of solid content, and this latest project is definitely his baby. It hasn’t gotten wildly wonderful reviews, and I can see how some of the themes and the short narrative format may not appeal to all, but upon deeper

inspection, this series really is trying to get its audience out of their own head and into a storyline that doesn’t take hours or weeks to watch. I’m reminded of a lot of the early quarantine content we had when art had to be made in 6-foot bubbles.

ow in its fourth and final season, I’m clearly a bit late to the Goliath party, but better late than never. This Amazon Studios-produced law drama created by David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro follows disgraced attorney Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thornton), who wiles away his days drinking and lazily trying to get poor clients to plead out so he doesn’t have to step foot in a courtroom. The once formidable lawyer lost his mojo in a past case, but in season 1, he’s offered a chance to get it back when real estate agent and part-time DUI lawyer Patty Solis-Papagian (Nina Arianda) brings him a big case involving a wrongful death lawsuit. Turns out he’ll

be facing off against Cooperman McBride, a powerful, deep-pocketed law firm Billy founded with Donald Cooperman (William Hurt), who holds a deep grudge against Billy and still employs Billy’s ex-wife, Michelle (Maria Bello). They’re representing a ruthless defense contractor. This is a deliciously juicy story with a terrific cast of veteran actors, and in each season, Billy takes on a new near-unwinnable case—real David and Goliath stuff. There are lots of pitfalls along the way, but like David, Billy is deadly and unafraid of staring down a giant because he knows the law, he knows juries, and he loves justice. I’m halfway through the second season and am loving it. (32 approximately 60-min. episodes) ∆ —Glen

Puffed to perfection tion Distinctive, delicious Detroit-style pizza is on the rise in SLO County

uddy’s Rendezvous in Detroit was the first to whip up pizzas in square steel pans available from local automotive suppliers, according to legend. The pies featured a thick airy crust topped with Wisconsin brick cheese spread generously to the edges. That was 75 years ago, and the pie became a local favorite, but it didn’t branch beyond Michigan until about 10 years ago, when restaurateurs in other states started popularizing the term “Detroit-style.” The term went viral in 2012 when Detroit chef Shawn Randazzo won the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas with his Detroit-style entry. The pizza’s fame peaked and waned over the next decade, then skyrocketed nationwide in 2020 as COVID-19 shutdowns temporarily relegated the restaurant industry to take-out-only establishments. Yelp reported in its 2021 Trend Forecast that reviews touting “Detroitstyle pizza” are up 52 percent. It also noted that mentions of “hot honey” for drizzling over pizza are up 48 percent, while “Nashville hot chicken” references are up 60 percent. Not surprisingly, Detroit-style purveyors have San Luis Obispo County covered. And they’re capitalizing on the honey and chicken trends as well, with the sticky syrup jazzing up pies at Benny’s Pizza in SLO, while Nashville hot chicken tops the Smashville at Sweet Lew’s in Paso Robles. The two eateries feature traditional elements of Detroit pizza, with polaropposite individuality. One limits topping choices and focuses on cheese caramelization and its flavorful red sauce;

the other offers myriad fresh ingredients and build-your-own options. Vegetable toppings often result in a wet crust, according to Benny’s Pizza owner Ben Arrona, so he limits customers to nine tried-and-true ingredients: pepperoni, sausage, soppressata Italian salami, Canadian bacon, olives, onions, bell peppers, pineapple, and jalapeños. He doesn’t allow substitutions or special orders, and all pies feature mozzarella cheese and Benny’s “famous red sauce.” Period.

Arrona’s clients like it that way. Established in February 2020, Benny’s has outgrown its takeout operation—a self-named commissary kitchen at 977 Foothill Blvd.—and will be relocating to the former Pepe Delgado’s location at 1601 Monterey St. He will continue renting out space at Benny’s Kitchen to other food providers, while launching Benny’s Pizza Palace and Social Club by early November. Arrona has amassed a local following—5,400 strong on his Facebook account—who order via social media. Pies are distributed in predetermined time slots on Tuesday and Friday evenings. The meticulous dough-making process limits Arrona’s production capabilities to precise numbers, so patrons who reserve their pies ahead of time reap the rewards. “I don’t limit the number of pizzas per hour for fun,” said the San Luis Obispo native, who juggles his schedule between

baking, teaching, and studying. He is an adjunct professor at Cuesta College and is nearing completion of a Ph.D. in global and imperial history from Oxford University. “The process of making Detroit-style dough is pretty unique,” he explained, “and very labor-intensive.” Twice a week, Arrona pumps out approximately 100 pizzas. He doubleproofs his homemade dough, which takes from four to six hours, then tops it with cubed cheese, heavily distributed from rim to rim and especially at the corners. Next up, he says, is his secret sauce, which is “sweet on the front, and spicy on the end.” Selected toppings are generously layered over the sauce, then the pies bake for 20 minutes at 500 degrees. “You will see a beautiful caramel crust below this black burnt-looking cheese,” he said. “But that cheese is the best part.” FLAVOR continued page 36

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Hold your own hand and tell yourself what you will do to end a nagging discomfort in your life. Newsletter.freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries poet Anna Kamienska said her soul didn’t emanate light. It was filled with “bright darkness.” I suspect that description may apply to you in the coming weeks. Bright darkness will be one of your primary qualities. And that’s a good thing! You may not be a beacon of shiny cheer, but you will illuminate the shadows and secrets. You will bring deeper awareness to hidden agendas and sins of omission. You will see, and help others to see, what has been missing in situations that lack transparency. Congratulations in advance!

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Some people are crazy drunk on rotgut sobriety,” wrote aphorist Daniel Liebert. I trust you’re not one of them. But if you are, I beg you to change your habits during the next three weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you have a heavenly mandate to seek more than the usual amounts of whimsical ebullience, sweet diversions, uplifting obsessions, and holy amusements. Your health and success in the coming months require you to enjoy a period of concentrated joy and fun now. Be imaginative and innovative in your quest for zest.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “There is something truly restorative, finally comforting, in coming to the end of an illusion—a false hope.” So declared author Sue Miller, and now I’m sharing it with you, Taurus—just in time for the end of at least one of your illusions. (Could be two, even three.) I hope your misconceptions or misaligned fantasies will serve you well as they decay and dissolve. I trust they will be excellent fertilizer, helping you grow inspired visions that guide your future success. My prediction: You will soon know more about what isn’t real, which will boost your ability to evaluate what is real.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Afghan-American novelist Khaled Hosseini writes, “People mostly have it backward. They think they live by what they want. But really what guides them is what they’re afraid of—what they don’t want.” Is that true for you, Gemini? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to meditate on that question. And if you find you’re motivated to live your life more out of fear than out of love, I urge you to take strenuous action to change that situation! Make sure love is at least 51 percent and fear no more than 49 percent. I believe you can do much better than that, though. Aim for 75 percent love!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Sometimes dreams are wiser than waking.” Oglala Lakota medicine man Black Elk said that, and now I’m passing it on to you. It’s not always the case that dreams are wiser than waking, of course, but I suspect they will be for you in the coming weeks. The adventures you experience while you’re sleeping could provide crucial clues to inform your waking-life decisions. They should help you tune into resources and influences that will guide you during the coming months. And now I will make a bold prediction: that your dreams will change your brain chemistry in ways that enable you to see truths that until now have been invisible or unavailable. (PS: I encourage you to also be alert for intriguing insights and fantasies that well up when you’re tired or lounging around.)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Don’t hope more than you’re willing to work,” advises author Rita Mae Brown. So let me ask you, Leo: How hard are you willing to work to make your dreams come true, create your ideal life, and become the person you’d love to be? When you answer that question honestly, you’ll know exactly how much hope you have earned the right to foster. I’m pleased to inform you that the coming weeks will be a favorable time to upgrade your commitment to the work and therefore deepen your right to hope.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “To be truly visionary, we have to root our imagination in our concrete reality while simultaneously imagining possibilities beyond that reality.” This shrewd advice comes from author bell hooks (who doesn’t capitalize her name). I think it should be at the heart of your process in the coming days. Why? Because you now have an extraordinary potential to dream up creative innovations that acknowledge your limitations but also transcend those limitations. You have extra power available to harness your fantasies and instigate practical changes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scottish Poet Laureate Jackie Kay, born under the sign of Scorpio, writes, “It used to be that privacy came naturally to everybody and that we understood implicitly what kind of things a person might like to keep private. Now somebody has torn up the rule book on privacy and there’s a kind of free fall and free for all and few people naturally know how to guard this precious thing, privacy.” The coming weeks will be a good time for you to investigate this subject, Scorpio—to take it more seriously than you have before. In the process, I hope you will identify what’s truly important for you to keep confidential and protected, and then initiate the necessary adjustments. (PS: Please feel no guilt or embarrassment about your desire to have secrets!)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “All our Western thought is founded on this repulsive pretense that pain is the proper price of any good thing,” wrote feisty author Rebecca West (1892-1983). I am very happy to report that your current torrent of good things will not require you to pay the price of pain. On the contrary, I expect that your phase of grace and luck will teach you how to cultivate even more grace and luck; it will inspire you to be generous in ways that bring generosity coming back your way. As articulated by ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, here’s the operative principle: “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no,” declares author Nora Roberts. In that spirit and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to be bold and lucid about asking for what you want in the coming weeks. In addition, I encourage you to ask many probing questions so as to ferret out the best ways to get what you want. If you are skilled in carrying out this strategy, you will be a winsome blend of receptivity and aggressiveness, innocent humility and understated confidence. And that will be crucial in your campaign to get exactly what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Few persons enjoy real liberty,” wrote poet Alfred de Musset. “We are all slaves to ideas or habits.” That’s the bad news. The good news is that October is Supercharge Your Freedom Month for you Aquarians. I invite you to use all your ingenuity to deepen, augment, and refine your drive for liberation. What could you do to escape the numbness of the routine? How might you diminish the hold of limiting beliefs and inhibiting patterns? What shrunken expectations are impinging on your motivational verve? Life is blessing you with the opportunity to celebrate and cultivate what novelist Tim Tharp calls “the spectacular now.” Be a cheerful, magnanimous freedom fighter.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The brilliant Piscean composer Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) wrote, “I wish I could throw off the thoughts that poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.” What?! That’s crazy! If he had been brave enough and willful enough to stop taking pleasure in indulging his toxic thoughts, they might have lost their power to demoralize him. With this in mind, I’m asking you to investigate whether you, like Chopin, ever get a bit of secret excitement from undermining your own joy and success. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to dissolve that bad habit. ∆
