Paso school district deals with federal investigation, standstill with union

B

etween a federal investigation and a negotiations standstill with the teachers union, the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District is facing conflict on multiple fronts right now. Meanwhile, the district confirmed a new school board member who will add another perspective as these issues heat up. The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights opened an investigation into the district on Nov. 15 after receiving allegations that the district discriminated against Latinx and limited English proficient parents and community members. The complaint alleges that these groups were “barred from meaningful participation in school board meetings,” according to a Dec. 2 statement from the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area and California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA), which together brought forth the complaint. “I’m fluent in Spanish, and I have watched some of the board meetings, and it has really been abysmal in terms of the percentage of what has actually been interpreted,” said Frank Kopcinski, directing attorney at CRLA’s SLO office. “The issues are still ongoing and there’s not adequate interpretation services at board meetings.” District Superintendent Curt Dubost said in a Dec. 2 statement that the district has “corrected already any deficiencies in that compliance.” “The district firmly denies any discrimination against Latino students or their families and has numerous initiatives to ensure participation of all members of our community,” he stated. Kopcinski said Paso People’s Action, a grassroots organization promoting communityled advocacy in Paso, brought the issues to CRLA. Yessenia Echevarria with Paso People’s Action said the potential Georgia Brown school closure is a key piece of the picture. “We were notified a year ago of this possible school closure, and the language of the possible school closure is very confusing,” Echevarria said. “And so our biggest concern is participation materials, to make sure that they’re being not only translated, but translated adequately.” From here, the investigation is in the Office for Civil Rights’ hands. “It’s possible that the district will come to some sort of resolution with Paso People’s Action,” Kopcinski said. “If that doesn’t happen, then OCR [Office for Civil Rights] could issue a noncompliance determination and provide a proposed resolution. But if the district doesn’t want to enter into a resolution agreement, then the OCR can issue an enforcement action. … They can suspend funds, or they can refer to the Department of Justice to bring legal proceedings against them.”

SLO County lines up for national opioid settlement funds 

Central Coast communities could benefit from recently settled national opioid litigation, as California counties and cities are poised to receive more than $1 billion in remediation to help stem the raging opioid epidemic.

HIGHER PAY At this Oct. 12 union rally, a young student showed support for teacher salary increases. The teachers union declared impasse in its negotiations with the district, though the district does not agree that the two parties are at a standstill. The district also recently came under investigation for allegations of discrimination.

Meanwhile, the Paso Robles Public Educators union recently declared an impasse in its negotiations with the district. The union didn’t accept the district’s most recent salary increase offer of 2.5 percent. “[The district] said that they didn’t think we were at impasse,” said Jim Lynett, executive director of Paso Robles Public Educators. So now it’s up to the Public Employment Relations Board to determine if the two parties are indeed at a standstill, he explained. “We believe that we continue to have good relations with the union leadership and continue to have constructive, productive dialogue as we argue through some significant issues,” Superintendent Dubost told New Times. From Lynett’s perspective, the allegations brought forth in the federal investigation and the ongoing union negotiations are not entirely separate issues. “When you are not supporting the teachers in terms of their salary and benefits, and you’re not showing that appreciation and support when your financial situation is the best it’s been probably since 2007, then you get people whose

morale is damaged and they’re much less likely to work together to support each other and find common solutions,” Lynett said. “So yeah, they’re related.” Dubost reiterated his previous stance: That while the district’s reserve is large, it is mostly one-time money from COVID-19 relief. “To find that sweet spot that takes advantage of the one-time monies that we have, and finding a way responsibly to spend down the excessive reserve, is the dilemma that we’re all facing,” he said. And with new board member W. Frank Triggs now in the mix, appointed to replace resigned trustee Jim Reed, the district will have a fresh voice as it continues to navigate these issues. “The district told us that they were going to go back to the school board at their next meeting, which is Dec. 14, and discuss this further,” Lynett said. “They’ll have a new board member by that time, and secondly, the budget from the governor for next year will appear around the 10th of January. So those are all factors in this situation.” Δ —Malea Martin

As much as $16.5 million could be coming to San Luis Obispo County and its cities as part of that haul—just a sliver of the overall $26 billion settlement reached between hundreds of states and counties across the U.S. and opioid distributors McKesson, Cardinal Health, and AmerisourceBergen and manufacturer Janssen Pharmaceuticals. In 2018, SLO County joined as a plaintiff on

the burgeoning national lawsuit that accused the Big Pharma companies of fueling the opioid crisis by downplaying the addiction risks of their prescription drugs. Now, SLO County and six local cities are eligible to participate in the resulting settlements, but they have to decide to do so before a January deadline, according to Brian NEWS continued page 6

Stack, a deputy attorney in the SLO County Counsel’s Office. “There are a lot of layers to this,” Stack told New Times. “Even if some of the cities hadn’t joined the lawsuit, they have the ability to join the settlement and increase the allocation that comes to the state. These funds will be made available on an annual basis and then the county will have to come up with qualifying uses for those funds.” At Dec. 7 meetings, the SLO and Paso Robles city councils voted to participate in the settlement. In doing so, they agreed to waive their right to sue the companies over local opioid impacts. “They [the drug companies] want to get as many entities to release claims against them as possible,” Stack explained. Stack noted that some litigation is still pending in the sprawling national case, so future settlements (and their payouts) are likely on the horizon. According to preliminary estimates, the recent settlement agreement would deliver $1.24 million and $692,000 to the cities of SLO and Paso Robles, respectively, handed out over a 17- or 18year period. Between SLO County and the six cities, a total of $16.5 million is available if all entities join. Cities that join then must decide whether they want to receive their share of the settlement directly or have the county administer it for them. The Paso Robles City Council opted for the latter, since spending the settlement dollars comes with its own administrative costs. “Our share of this lawsuit is about $38,000 a year, and the reason we’re not saying that money should come to us is because it would cost us as much money as that just to administer the program,” Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin said at the meeting. “It’s most cost effective to run it through the county.” The SLO City Council decided not to make that decision yet, with city officials noting that the impending deadline only concerns the decision of whether or not to participate in the settlement. Once the settlement funds are dispersed, the county and cities are required to spend it on qualified uses that pertain to fighting the opioid crisis. Those areas include intervention, treatment, education, recovery, and prevention of opioid use and related disorders. Janna Nichols, executive director of the 5 Cities Homeless Coalition, told the Paso Robles City Council during public

comment that the funding couldn’t come soon enough, as her nonprofit confronts the devastating impact of opioids every day. “I was just training with staff on Friday on how to administer Narcan to minimize the effects of a drug overdose,” Nichols said. “This is a very real issue, and we have significant challenges ahead of us.” —Peter Johnson

New groundwater plan will help SLO Basin’s water levels

San Luis Obispo County approved a sustainable water plan that would help quench the unusually parched region and ensure its wells have enough water for years to come. The county and the city of SLO greenlit the Groundwater Sustainability Plan on Dec. 7 for the San Luis Obispo Basin to counter the longstanding depleted water levels in the San Luis and Edna Valleys. These subbasins were identified by the California Department of Water Resources as some of the high- and medium-priority basins in SLO County in accordance with the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). Other regions subject to SGMA include the Paso Robles and the Cuyama basins. “Most communities in the county have groundwater as part of their water portfolio, so sustainable use of groundwater is important countywide,” said Kate Ballantyne, the deputy director of SLO County Public Works. “The most critical takeaways would be that the basin has a very willing and engaged group of stakeholders who are working together to bring the basin into balance.” Drawn up by local agencies from the city and county called the Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSA), the plan is meant to alleviate groundwater depletion and bring equilibrium to the amount of water being used and deposited over the next 20 years. SLO Basin GSAs have to submit the approved plan to the state department by Jan. 31, 2022. The state deemed the SLO Basin as “high priority.” The city’s deputy director of water, Mychal Boerman, underscored this status when he announced at the Dec. 7 City Council meeting that the groundwater level in the basin had dipped by 30 to 60 feet from spring 2011 to 2015. “From the mid 1990s, there has been no recovery of groundwater level. There’s continual decline due to the imbalance of pumping out of the basin and natural recharge into the basin. This is typical in

the Edna Valley area,” he said. Boerman mentioned that the main aim of sustainability management is to prevent “undesirable results” like chronic lowering of groundwater levels, reduction of water storage, degraded water quality, surface water depletion, and the gradual sinking of land. Some ways to put a stop to these are to create a monitoring network that examines water level and quality, importing new water into the region through various projects, and more direct actions like pumping reductions for community members. “They have identified a variety of projects that may improve their water supply. However, GSAs do have the authority to implement pumping limitation programs if sustainability is not being achieved in accordance with SGMA requirements,” Ballantyne told New Times. Her office will be transferring the responsibility of implementing the plan to a new agency called the Groundwater Sustainability Department (GSD) that the Board of Supervisors set up in September 2021. Both the Board of Supervisors and the SLO City Council approved the position of a plan manager as well. GSD Director Blaine Reely will be appointed to this new role. “The Public Works Department will continue in their role of understanding conditions in unmanaged basins, identifying issue areas, and helping plan for solutions. Once solutions are identified, management and implementation of solutions transfer to the Groundwater Sustainability Department,” Ballantyne said. —Bulbul Rajagopal

The funding sources up for grabs are the Regional Park Program grant and the Rural Recreation and Tourism Program grant. Both have a request ceiling of $3 million. Currently, the Nipomo Park project is funded using almost $1 million in public facilities fees, and a little more than $450,000 from the California Per Capita Grant Program that was awarded in April 2021. According to previous New Times reporting, even with the Per Capita Grant, 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton expected a rough deficit of $300,000 before skate park construction could begin. But now, Parks and Recreation is shooting for more funds because the plans have gone over budget. Franco said that the revised goal stands at $2.7 million. “When we went out to bid, it came substantially higher than the engineer’s estimate,” he said. “Bids right now for all construction projects everywhere are coming in significantly higher.” Franco mentioned that the cost of labor spiked because of the pandemicaffected economy. Adding that to a skate park project—a structure characterized by unusual architecture, like swerves and curves—further shrank Parks and Recreation’s coffers, prompting department officials to seek help from grants. “It’s a lot of concrete. For a skate park, you have to excavate a lot. When you do a MUSIC just building a long, thin sidewalk, you’re rectangle,” Franco said. “When you’re doing a skate park, you’re doing bowls and FLAVOR/EATS ramps. It’s not simple … and doing that in concrete that’s going to last … that’s the main cost.” INFO County Parks will But though county Parks and apply for more funds Recreation got approval to apply for more CALENDAR thinks a long road still lies for Nipomo Skate Park money, Franco ahead. Now completing its fourth year, San Luis Obispo County Parks the skate park project is expecting delays and Recreation got approval to widen OPINION in responses from the grant its funding net for the committees. construction of the coveted “The last grant we and often-controversial NEWS applied for, they said we Nipomo Skate Park.

Opinion Lacking answers

How much energy would be produced by the offshore wind energy plant proposed for the Central Coast? And how can we put that into terms the average resident can understand? Several recent news reports have said the installation would produce about 3 gigawatts (GW) of energy. Period. Full stop. Is that 3 GW per hour, per day, per year, or from now until the end of time? And how great a contribution would that be to our total energy supply? During The Tribune’s recent panel discussion on wind energy, the question was asked: “We hear that this project will produce nearly 3 GW of electricity. What does that mean for our electricity grid and powering our homes?” California Energy Commissioner Karen Douglas responded, “Three GW is a large amount of electricity.” Well, that really answers the question, now, doesn’t it? According to the state Energy Commission, San Luis Obispo County uses more than 1,700 GW of electricity per year. If this offshore plant is only going to produce 3 GW per year, is it really worth the trouble? It’s time for us to demand some clear, detailed, specific answers. Jayne Scott Morro Bay

School buses improve access to education

Unlike our neighboring school districts to the north and south, Atascadero Unified School District does not offer home-to-school bus service for the majority of its students. Every day, parents and guardians make thousands of car trips to and from schools, wasting money and time, creating traffic, lowering

HODIN

air quality, and degrading roads. Also, Atascadero contracts with a forprofit company to provide before- and after-school child care—and it is expensive. If parents cannot pay $400 a month for the service, they must be available every workday at 3 p.m. to pick up their students. There is a simple solution: offer students a normal school bus to get to and from school. Families benefit from a school bus in ways beyond schedule flexibility as well. Atascadero has a chronic absenteeism rate of 1 in 10 students, which the state designates at “high.” For low-income students, who are the least likely to have access to reliable transportation to school, the rate is 1 in 7. Chronic absenteeism correlates with poor educational outcomes starting in kindergarten and extending through college, but research shows that being able to ride the bus to school reduces chronic absenteeism rates, especially in rural areas like Atascadero. Regular home-to-school bus service would ensure that our most vulnerable students are able to get the education they deserve. Atascadero’s school board claims that they cannot afford to offer this service, but there are grants available that other California districts have used to fund their transportation programs. If other districts, including Paso Robles and SLO, can offer bus service, why can’t Atascadero? Atascadero Unified is letting its students and families down by refusing to implement a critical part of public education: getting students to school. Shane Patrick Atascadero

Rhetoric&Reason

xcuse me: Are we still having the “keep the Diablo Canyon Power Plant open” debate? Memo to Stanford, MIT, and U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm: Please acquaint yourself with the long voyage of discovery that found a spiderweb of active earthquake faults around the nuclear power plant, the upgrading of the power that the quakes could generate, and the corresponding and increasingly unconvincing “pencil engineering” by PG&E and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that kept upping the alleged quake resistance of the reactors (and all the ancillary electrical and cooling infrastructure they depend on), should one of those earthquakes occur. Also note the additional decades of sticking the Central Coast with an ever-growing supply of the world’s most lethal byproduct (the bitter irony of characterizing Diablo Canyon’s power as “clean”), with no permanent repository, after decades of promises that one will be found somewhere, someday. Diablo’s fans are worried about replacing the jobs that will go away with Diablo. First, the decommissioning and removal of the plant constitutes a 30-year work project. Second, those concerns might best be focused on protecting our regional Community Choice Aggregation program and urging a greater emphasis on the creation of local renewable energy projects—and all of the solar, wind, energy efficiency, and green economy jobs that come with them. But let’s get down to it. The central argument of the latest chorus of voices in favor of keeping Diablo open is that an inevitable surge in natural gas and carbon emissions is going to happen if the plant closes. Also, the state can’t keep the lights on, let alone meet its clean energy goals, without Diablo. While nuance generally loses out when arguing with a slogan on a blimp, as was paraded through downtown SLO last week, I’ll give it a shot. Nuclear power has been shoving renewable energy off the grid for decades. PG&E put it thusly to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), framing it the other way around: “As more solar generation comes on line over time, and when its output is at peak supply (e.g., in the middle of the day), there is less room on the electric system for energy from inflexible and large baseload resources such as Diablo Canyon.” Nuclear finally getting out of the picture will mean the combination of solar, wind, storage, efficiency, and all and sundry flexible, non-baseline resources can be brought to bear at full force. Last June, the CPUC ordered utilities to procure 11,500 megawatts (MW) of new electricity resources by 2026, all from renewables and distributed energy resources, including solar PV, microgrids, energy efficiency, and demand response. In making that announcement, the commission noted that these resources will replace “electricity generation from more than 3,700 MW of retiring natural gas plants and 2,200 MW from Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s retiring Diablo Canyon Power Plant. At least 2,500 MW of zero-emitting resources were ordered specifically to replace generation from Diablo Canyon, which is in addition to

capacity already procured over the past several years for the same purpose.” Commissioner Clifford Rechtschaffen is quoted in the order announcement saying: “The procurement we ordered is equal to output of four large nuclear power plants or 20 natural gas plants. Included is solar, wind, geothermal, and long duration storage—pumped hydro facilities or other emerging technologies that can store energy for eight hours or longer. Our actions today will ensure that we can keep the lights on during periods of greatest demand, even as we retire Diablo Canyon and other natural gas plants.” That “capacity already procured” referred to a tenfold increase in battery storage, coming online next summer, and another 3,300 MW to come online by 2023. Also we can count on 4,000 MW between now and August 2024 thanks to California’s Renewables Portfolio Standard and other state clean energy programs. With a little throat clearing, the CPUC also noted that the June procurement order had been preceded by an alternate proposal the month before, but “the proposal was … revised in response to comments from parties to make the procurement 100 percent greenhousegas-free and renewable, and the alternate proposal was then withdrawn.” As Sierra Club California Energy/Climate Committee member Robert Freehling put it in an email to me: “How many times do we have to ‘replace’ Diablo Canyon with clean energy before the replacement crowd accepts that it has been replaced?” In short: Where the electrons we use come from is where policy makers decide they will come from. Here’s Mr. Freehling again, in 2016, when the closures of San Onofre and Diablo Canyon were both pending. “The retiring nuclear power plants only cause modest and temporary fluctuations in the growth of preferred resources in comparison with the much larger scale of the state’s clean energy programs,” he said. “Renewable energy and energy efficiency programs add up to a total of 200,000 to 250,000 gigawatt-hours per year by 2030, compared to 18,000 gigawatt-hours lost from each of the nuclear plants. In other words, the state’s existing clean energy programs are about six times larger than the two nuclear plants combined.” There’s no Diablo in those details. ∆ Andrew Christie is the director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

T

he Paso Robles Joint Unified School District (PRJUSD) is the gift that keeps on giving to opinion columnists. It can’t seem to get through a month without doing more damage to its already tattered reputation of gross mismanagement and casual bigotry. Most recently, it’s come under federal investigation by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. Oh my! What might they be investigating, you wonder? So much to choose from! Is it the district’s hysterical “ban” on teaching the right-wing dog whistle known as critical race theory, which isn’t, wasn’t, and wasn’t going to be taught anyway? Is it the response to the Pride flag incident—which, instead of condemning the theft and vandalism of the flag, was to irrationally limit flag size on school grounds? Is it the refusal to hold anyone accountable for the “Fuck Biden” flag on the high school campus during a Nov. 10 event meant to honor veterans? No way, man. Biden’s white, right? No, no, and no. The district is under investigation for the way it treats the limited English proficient (LEP) parents of Latino students. Let’s skip back to the April 27 school board meeting, when Paso People’s Action co-founder Yessenia Echevarria complained about the district’s shoddy translation services. “The Hispanic community should take note of this abuse,” Echevarria said during the virtual meeting, to which school board president and knuckle-dragger Chris

Arend replied, “This was idiocy. This woman speaks fluent English and she has wasted now another roughly five minutes of our time to grandstand here.” If you look up “white privilege” in the Pictionary, you’ll find a photo of Arend, perhaps best known for his wheezy and mind-numbingly boring Sept. 2, 2020, opinion piece on the CalCoastNews blog titled “The myth of ‘systemic racism.’” Can you imagine anything our world needs less than an entitled white dude mansplaining to all the brown people how there’s no racism in the United States and to the white people that if they believe there’s racism they’re ruining the country? Every time I write about Arend, who was also the reactionary “genius” who decided Paso schools had to be protected from Critical Race Theory so he penned the ban, I feel like I’m explaining something obvious to a petulant preschooler. Yes, Ms. Echevarria speaks fluent English and fluent Spanish, which is why she knows the provided translation services to parents who don’t speak fluent English are insufficient. Good grief you’re thick, man! Your term expires next year. Let’s hope it’s your last. Echevarria isn’t alone in criticizing the district’s translation services. “I’m fluent in Spanish, and I’ve watched some of the board meetings, and it has really been abysmal in terms of the percentage

Slick fix

Olive oil is the gourmet eleventh-hour gift that’ll get taste buds rejoicing

O

live oil may seem like an unusual holiday gift, but in California’s Mediterranean climate, it’s right at home. New Times curated a sample of liquid gold gifting options from around San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. Our list is in no way exhaustive but can point you in the right direction for the slickest last-minute present.

We Olive San Luis Obispo

Run by owner Ray Russell on Higuera Street, the 14-year-old We Olive SLO is a downtown staple offering a buttery variety of flavored and classic olive oils. Fan favorites include the organic Meyer lemon olive oil from the San Joaquin Valley, the fresh garlic olive oil from Sutter, and a fruity Arbequina oil from Capay Valley. Their balsamic vinegar straight from Italy seals the deal. Customers can purchase an olive oil and balsamic vinegar combination gift set as well as tapenades, jams, spices, and kitchenware. But the store’s refillable bottle policy for a lower price is a crowd pleaser, saving olive oil aficionados roughly $4 to $6 depending on the size of the container. We Olive SLO is a true local stop,

according to Russell, because the only way to get your hands on their bottles is by picking up the phone or by strolling right into the shop. 958 Higuera St., SLO; (805) 595-1376; rrussell@weolive.com.

Pasolivo

Located in the heart of Paso Robles wine country, Pasolivo has “something for everybody,” said General Manager Marisa Bloch. Their extra virgin olive oil tasting experience will bring interested customers to 140 acres of rolling hills once owned by Hollywood director King Vidor.

Bloch said that their most popular gift set is called the Entertainer, which is brimming with olive oils, vinegars, mustards, and tapenades. “It’s a good variety for the ultimate foodie,” she said. The gift sets are also customizable, and Pasolivo is currently offering a holiday promotion until Dec. 14 where customers can get free products after spending a certain amount. 8530 Vineyard Drive and 1229 Park St., Paso Robles; (805) 227-0186; pasolivo.com.

Rancho Olivos

Owned and run by rancher couple Shannon Casey and John Copeland, Rancho Olivos has been producing fresh estate artisan extra virgin olive oil out of the Santa Ynez Valley for more than a decade. “Rancho Olivos is the only olive oil producer in the valley that offers tastings on the farm next to our orchards of beautiful olive trees,” according to its website. They have a variety of holiday gift sets, too. The Dipping Gift Box lets olive oil lovers mix and match any two bottles of Rancho Olivos oils and vinegars. If you still can’t make up your mind, the Ultimate Sampler Box—a collection of all 12 oils and vinegars in 60 ml bottles—can save the day. Their other gift sets also include accessories like cloth gift bags. While the Santa Ynez location is the company’s primary home, Rancho Olivos opened a second location in Morro Bay in 2019. 2390 N.

Olea Farm

Olea Farm claims to bring European quality to California’s olive oil industry.

BUNDLING UP Pasolivo’s Bar Cart Bundle includes citrus olive oil, sparkling citrus vinegar, Castelvetrano olives, and Sriracha sea salt.

Tucked just outside Templeton, the farm specializes in Arbequina olive oil. “The flavor of the Arbequina is like putting ‘spring into a bottle,’ which is why so many restaurant chefs from the area insist on using it to highlight their Central Coast cuisine,” according Olea Farm’s website. Their gift boxes for all occasions include a five-set olive oil collection, a premium two-bottle selection, and an olive oil and balsamic vinegar quintet. Olea Farm also offers flat-rate shipping of $12, no matter how many gift boxes ordered. 2985 Templeton Road, Templeton; (805) 610-2258; oleafarm.com. ✦ Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal can be reached at brajagopal@ newtimesslo.com.

dessert spots across the county. Get your orders in early, because chances are you aren’t the only one with a sweets-lover on your list.

SLO Delicious Bake Shop

It may have just opened in June this year, but SLO Delicious has already become a local favorite. It offers a wide selection of savory lunch options that are delicious in their own right, but the sweet magic lies in the Garden Street eatery’s dessert case. If you know someone with a sweet tooth, a box of baked goods and pastries from SLO Delicious would make the perfect gift for the holidays. They have the classics locked down: soft, gooey chocolate chip cookies; apple mini pies (the perfect size for not sharing); fluffy blueberry muffins. But SLO Delicious also knows how to venture into the unconventional, with pastry flavor combinations that you’ve probably never tried but definitely need to, like strawberry vanilla cream cheese cookies, carrot pineapple muffins, and bacon chocolate truffles. If you want to give a gift that’s delicious and visually appealing, grab the most beautiful little fruit tart you’ve ever seen for that special someone in your life … but don’t expect

daily. Under the distinctive crunchy and sugary exterior, you’ll find a soft and sweet bread-like pastry that will leave you wanting more than one—so best buy a few if you’re giving these as a gift this holiday season. The concha looks like a shell (hence the name: concha means shell in Spanish), making these a particularly fun gift for kids, general beach enthusiasts, or anyone who enjoys delicious, sugary baked goods—which just about covers everyone on your list. Delicias de Mi Tierra doesn’t limit itself to conchas: other creations include German chocolate cake, tres leches cake, and churro cheesecake. Uhh … yum! 235 W Tefft St., Nipomo; (805) 619-7069; facebook.com/ deliciasdemitierrabakery.

Delicias de Mi Tierra Bakery in Nipomo is one of the few spots on the Central Coast where you can find Mexican-style sweet bread, or conchas, fresh baked

Crispy, buttery, flaky crust. Sweet, tart fruit filling. Local, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients. Is there much more you can ask for in a pie? Bramble Pie Company in Atascadero offers all this and more in its quality pies. For those on your list who prefer to stick with the classics, opt for one of Bramble’s year-round offerings: chocolate cream, banana cream, Key lime, chocolate peanut butter, and more. Or get your loved one a gift card so they can try a new pie each season. That’s right, Bramble Pie Company offers different pies each season that align with what’s ripe in the fields, so you know you’re getting the freshest, most in-season pie possible. In the winter, the citrus pie is ready for the picking. In the spring, try a strawberry or apricot pie. Come summer, it’s peaches, plums, SWEET TREATS continued page 20

Local record stores dish out used music, movies, memorabilia, and other giftable merchandise

By Caleb Wiseblood

S

ometimes the best thing about walking into a record shop isn’t browsing through the store’s music selection, it’s stumbling upon the wacky pop culture artifacts you’re likely to find. Some of this stuff goes even beyond that designation, into the realm of vintage Happy Meal toys and other niche commodities outside the collective zeitgeist. What makes the purveyors of such items so great for holiday shopping is you come in to find a gift for the music aficionado in your family, and end up multitasking in the process—picking out an extra present or two for your Hamburglar-loving uncle. You can find a plethora of these kinds of shops all along the Central Coast, but here’s a small handful of local gems to consider if you can’t decide where to start. Happy hunting!

HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH Paradise Records and Trading Post recently opened a third location (pictured) in the Santa Maria Town Center. Its two sister shops are located in Orcutt and Santa Barbara.

SEASONAL SOUNDS Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive LP or CD, Paradise Records has seasonal sections dedicated to holiday-themed albums (at both the Orcutt and Santa Maria stores). DISC DEPOT Cheap Thrills’ eclectic “vinyl dep’t” includes thousands of LPs for just $1.98 per record (according to the quirky arrow signs that lead patrons upstairs to the department on the second floor).

Paradise Records and Trading Post

When I found out that Paradise Records (Orcutt) recently opened a sister store in the Santa Maria Town Center, I assumed it was their second location, not their third. Little did I know they’ve got one in Santa Barbara, too, which kind of blew my mind. I just can’t imagine the amount of inventory stockpiling it takes to maintain three separate versions of Paradise Records—a seemingly endless warehouse of used records, magazines, comic books, collectibles, and more. When it comes to inexpensive, lastminute holiday gifting, I recommend heading to the specially marked sections for $1 LPs, $1 CDs, and $1 DVDs. If you’re willing to spend a bit more though, there’s a wild variety of memorabilia to peruse. 1157 E. Clark Ave., suite D, Orcutt, and 371 Town Center E, Santa Maria; (805) 7273141; paradiserecordsandtradingpost.com.

Mike’s Record Rack

Located just a few blocks away from the coastline, Mike’s Record Rack (Grover

SHOP LOCAL Looking for a locally produced album to give out as a holiday gift? Cheap Thrills’ local artist rack has got you covered, This section of the store is dedicated to albums (mostly CDs) from musicians and bands based on the Central Coast.

Beach) is a solid spot to find records, cassette tapes, and CDs just in time for the gift-giving season. According to the store’s website, owner Mike Leming is always on the prowl for large music collections on the market, which keeps the store’s selection consistently stocked and diverse (with genres ranging from 1950s jazz to hardcore metal). But music is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential holiday gifts you can find at the Record Rack, which also boasts a variety of T-shirts, posters, and other items to browse through. 201 W. Grand Ave., Grover Beach; (805) 202-8027; mikesrecordrackgb.com.

Cheap Thrills

Not to be confused with the Sia song, Cheap Thrills (San Luis Obispo) appropriately offers exactly what its nononsense name implies. The shop does have its fair share of pricey exceptions (rare collectibles, etc.), but there’s always some cheap offers to find in every section of the store—whether it’s the “bargain movies” ranging from $1.98 to $4.98, or the “vinyl dep’t,” which includes thousands of LPs for just $1.98 per record (according to the quirky arrow signs that lead patrons upstairs to the department on the second floor). Other sections to check out at Cheap Thrills include the local artists rack, dedicated to albums (mostly CDs) from musicians and bands based on the Central Coast. 563 Higuera St., San Luis Obispo; (805) 544-0686; cheapthrills.biz.

Traffic Records

If you’re looking to shop for gifts locally, but without having to leave your house, Traffic Records (Atascadero) offers free shipping on LP deliveries (with purchases of more than $50). Although Cyber Monday is behind us, patrons can browse for special deals (a list of Black Friday-priced offerings remains up) and look up the store’s eclectic inventory online, which was revamped to include an even broader music selection than ever before (the store’s operators spent a lot of time during the pandemic closure adding hundreds of new and used records, audio equipment, and other items, according to the shop’s website). 5850 Traffic Way, Atascadero; (805) 464-2994; trafficrecordstore.com. ✦ Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood can be reached at cwiseblood@newtimesslo.com.

Music preservationist Timeless genre-jumper Pokey LaFarge plays The Siren

PHOTO COURTESY OF POKEY LAFARGE

P

okey LaFarge is one of a kind—a purveyor and preservationist of antiquated sounds that should never be forgotten. His music straddles multiple genres and epochs—celebrating past and present. Born Andrew Heissler in Bloomington, Illinois, he showed an interest in all things historical from a young age. His grandfathers both deeply influenced him. One was a member of the St. Louis Banjo Club and gave him his first guitar and tenor banjo, the other an amateur historian proficient in the American Civil War and World War II. Pokey, so named by his mother for his meandering ways, discovered blues as an early teenager, and by 17, he’d graduated high school, moved West, and was supporting himself as street busker. Let’s fast-forward 20 years through a very unique music career. In March of 2020, he gave up his Los Angeles abode, put his belongings in storage, and was headed to Austin to showcase and launch the his then-new record, Rock Bottom Rhapsody (released April 10, 2020), at South by Southwest, after which he planed for an extended tour. Best laid plans and all. The pandemic crushed it them. Stuck in Austin, he started work on his newest studio album, In the Blossom of Their Shade, which was released in two months ago in October. The songs reportedly “flowed out of him.” “Looking in, inspired by the deep soul not just from these shores, but from distant geographical places like Africa or South America, LaFarge set out to create a body of work that paired emotional lyrics with a killer groove and grabby melodies,” according to press materials. The album is, indeed, fantastic—a collection of entertaining and unique songs centered in various genres without ever sounding derivative. Numbskull and Good Medicine host Pokey LaFarge at The Siren on Saturday, Dec. 11 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $25 plus fees presale at eventbrite.com or $25 at the door).

Triple awesome

There are still good seats left to see three amazing singer-songwriters who’ve teamed up for a Fremont Theater show this Thursday, Dec. 9. Marc Cohn, Shawn Colvin, and Sara Watkins will appear together in concert starting at 7 p.m. (doors at 6 p.m.; all ages; $50 to $70 plus fees at fremontslo.com). Both Cohn and Colvin are Grammy Award winners, and Watkins was Nickel Creek’s fiddler before she set off on her solo career. Also at the Fremont, see indie pop act

These guys are total pros, and the band delivers an incredible simulation of the rocking Aussie act. Now celebrating their 11th year, High Voltage has been through a lot of different players, but as drummer Ray Rocha notes, “It’s crazy that I could find so many talented guys to keep the band going. I’ve never had to cancel or reschedule a concert for lack of having a player.” Authority Zero makes a stop at SLO Brew Rock on their Ollie Ollie Oxen Free North American tour this Monday, Dec. 13 (8 p.m.; 18-and-older; $17 plus fees presale at slobrew.com or $20 day of show). Pop and skate punk, reggae and ska, new wave and post grunge await! On Wednesday, Dec. 15, enjoy an evening with Americana folk act Mapache at SLO Brew Rock (7 p.m.; all ages; $20 plus fees presale at slobrew. com or $25 day of show). Brought to you by (((folkYEAH!))) and SLO Brew Live, the band will play an acoustic set and an electric set.

o matter which acre of Universal Studios’ 425 you’re standing on, you’re bound to be hearing something composed by John Williams playing in the background—whether it’s Harry Potter fanfare or the Jurassic Park soundtrack. There are a few exceptions here and there— depending on which themed area you’re walking to, or what time of the year you’re visiting the park. Danny Elfman’s opening suite for The Simpsons can be heard yearround in the town of Springfield, while James Horner’s score for How The Grinch Stole Christmas plays in—you guessed it—Whoville, a seasonal section of the park only erected during November and December, in celebration of “Grinchmas.” This part of the park operates as a town square-esque setting, complete with a communal Christmas tree lighting, which reoccurs every hour or so during the evening. The ceremony kicks off with an introductory speech from Whoville’s mayor, Augustus Maywho (à la Jeffrey Tambor in Ron Howard’s film adaptation, although he doesn’t appear in Dr. Seuss’ original book). The first time I spot this shady Whoville official is much earlier in the day though, nearly right after entering the park. As surreal as it is to see one of my favorite underrated movie villains come to life, my wide-eyed gaze is swiftly stolen by a 7-foot-tall Shrek wearing a cute Christmas sweater, towering just around the corner. That sentiment kind of sums up my recent holiday trip to Universal Studios—everything at the park seems to be competing for my attention.

Full price country trip with his What’s it worth, Glen? Full price young nephew, Jesse Where’s it showing? Palm Theatre (Woody Norman). (B&W, 109 min.) Glen This soulful little slice-of-life drama is so naturalistic, authentic, and real that it feels more like peering into people’s private lives than watching a film. The story itself is exceedingly simple. Johnny agrees to watch his nephew, Jesse, when his sister, Viv (Gaby Hoffman), has to help her mentally ill husband, Paul (Scoot McNairy), as he works through a breakdown. The siblings haven’t talked much since their mother (Deborah Strang) died the previous year. Since then, Johnny’s relationship with his girlfriend ended while Viv has struggled with her sick husband and her precocious and somewhat odd son, Jesse. It’s all pretty common family drama, but at the heart of the story is the transformational relationship that grows between Johnny and Jesse—both wounded souls in their own ways, both in desperate need of connection, and both trying to navigate their emotional baggage. It’s all set alongside Johnny’s current work project, which is interviewing young people about how they feel about the future. Though it started off a little slow and flat for me, the story and characters sucked me in, and by the conclusion, I was fully emotionally invested. This is an amazing piece of cinema. Anna It’s definitely not an action film, but the earnest relationships here keep it compelling. Every character is complicated with a vein of sadness running deep, and everyone also loves each other deeply— even within the imperfections they all hold. Phoenix is one of my favorites; he chooses his roles with clear intention, and I’m always impressed by the depths he will take himself to in a role. His main counterparts in this, Jesse and Viv, match

his talent, and young Norman is a total gem. The casting director must have been so excited when this wide-eyed and tenderhearted kid walked in the door. Johnny can’t stay in LA and can’t stand the thought of leaving Jesse behind, so he packs himself and the kid up and heads to New York, a new experience for Jesse whose delicate emotional balance puts Johnny in a tough spot. Jesse already feels abandoned and has a mentally ill father whose manias have no doubt taken their toll. He’s thoughtful and sweet and sometimes difficult in the way that only children can be. The interviews with kids are especially poignant in this film; they all display deep thought and emotion with heartfelt and honest answers to life’s big questions. This film hits all the marks for me, and it’s one I will surely watch again. Glen Phoenix, Hoffman, and McNairy are all terrific, dependable actors, and the performances are uniformly incredible. How director Mills coaxed young Norman—who’s only 11 but already has 15 acting credits to his name—to deliver such a nuanced and multilayered performance is nothing short of miraculous. I wish I’d seen this film before I became a step-parent. It’s a lesson in learning how to listen—I mean really listen—and understand what a child is saying (and not saying). This is such a thoughtful, deeply considered film. The characters feel sadness, joy, frustration, longing … they’re so real. It’s a quiet, small film on the surface, but it’s full of weighty ideas, and it’s filled with awards-worthy performances, direction and writing, and gorgeous black and

white cinematography by Robbie Ryan. This is the antithesis of the Hollywood big-budget blockbuster, and—oh my— what a delicious change of pace. Anna This is the type of film I beg and plead for when there’s nothing but big box-office hits in theaters. Give me the quiet nuance and subtle beauty of actual character building over explosions and one-liners any day! I love to see actual craft happening on the big screen. The black and white filming was such a beautiful choice too; it’s one of those things that just cuts down on the noise around the studied performances, and despite saturation, you still see, feel, and hear the sounds of these places. Whether it’s the skate park in LA, or the beach, or the streets of New York, or a parade in New Orleans, director Mills conveys the vibrancy of the locations so well. You’re right that a lot of what this film is about is the learning curve that comes with children, especially if you’re not an everyday fixture in their lives and used to the day-in and day-out of the exhausting work of forming a human life with compassion and integrity. It never feels like you’re doing it totally right, but giving a child truth and humanity and perhaps a warm body to cuddle up with at night is ultimately what forms them. I can’t say it too much—this film was a total win for me. I can’t recommend it enough. ∆ Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and freelancer Anna Starkey write Split Screen.

FROM SCRATCH Antigua co-owners Chris and Bambi Banys remodeled every inch of their new brewery— with an occasional assist from community members. Their exterior mural was designed by local company Canned Pineapple.

Chris and Bambi Banys pour their hearts into new SLO brewery Antigua

T

he corner of Osos and Monterey streets in downtown San Luis Obispo is about to start pumping with amber libations and a full-service restaurant. Locals Chris and Bambi Banys are putting the finishing touches on their new brewhouse, slated to open in midJanuary. The 3,500-square-foot space replaces Mexican restaurant Qué Pasa at 1009 Monterey St. Aptly named Antigua, the brewery abuts two historic buildings—the art deco Fremont Theater, built in 1941, and the Sperry Building, originally constructed in 1898 and currently housing Mo’s Smokehouse BBQ and Woodstock’s Pizza. “To us, [the name Antigua] conjures the idea of old-fashioned artistry and personal dedication to craft, and evokes the connection modern San Luis Obispo has to its historic roots,” Bambi said. “We designed our own logo, with help from a professional graphic artist. The image is a golden hop, rising like the sun over San Luis Obispo,” she said. “The idea is that of a glorious new age of beer dawning over the Central Coast.” Antigua may evoke images of times past, but the facility is a new-age marvel. During the past two years, passersby may have noticed extensive construction, from craning a steam-powered boiler to the roof and forklifting in massive custom-designed tanks, to even carving up Monterey Street to install new underground gas lines. The Banyses’ painstaking attention to detail extends to every aspect of the establishment, which will accommodate roughly 80 people indoors, with additional patio seating. “We are handcrafting as much as

possible,” Bambi said. “For example, we repurposed butcher block desks that [I] had made for Chris’ prior office into branded patio tables; burned and scraped wood from the brewing equipment shipping crate to make the front apron of the bathroom sinks; made wood flight serving trays from trees cut at the SLO Country Club; made live-edge tables from a walnut slab salvaged from a tree removed in Creston; and burned, scraped, and sealed the wood that will wrap the bar front and make one of our exterior signs. “We believe in quality in all things, not just the beer,” she continued. “So, if we do something, we give it nothing less than our best effort and pay attention to the details. That’s who we are as people, and we think the customers deserve it. That’s why I’m on round four of getting the bar top just right.” While the Banyses put the finishing touches on their brewery, their new tanks are already yielding great pours,

including a porter, IPA, and double IPA. Customers can purchase four-packs of 16-ounce cans in the taproom, online, and for shipment throughout California. Antigua beers are unique in that their hops are farmed from their own property. Competitors import dry and pelletized hops from the Pacific Northwest, Bambi explained. “Pelletizing is the process of pulverizing the dried hops to dust and turning that dust into pellets that look like rabbit food,” she explained. “As you can imagine, just like with the herbs used in cooking, flavor is lost at each step of the process.” The Banyses, on the other hand, “strive to make the freshest, most exciting, besttasting beer you’ve ever had,” Chris said. “It starts on our San Luis hop farm, where we personally nurture and grow the hops that add fresh, intricate flavors to our brews. We then add the finest malts; pure, triple-filtered water; the best

yeast strains; and use a state-of-the-art, steam-fired brewhouse,” he continued. “We currently have around 1,500 bines planted on roughly 1 acre—hops are considered bines rather than vines,” Bambi added. “We have the capacity to expand to several more acres as needed once the brewery is open.” The Banyses have been brewing for friends, family, and events for several years, but have not sold their beverages—until now. Mike Hicks, an Antigua fan and owner of Lincoln Market and Deli in SLO, started stocking their beers last month. He said he met the couple at Paragon, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu martial arts facility in SLO. “I learned that they were in the process of opening up a brewery in downtown SLO, which is no small feat, and that they were unique in the fact that they were growing their own hops,” Hicks said. “As the owner of … a sandwich and beer store, I jumped at the chance to carry their beer. After trying their beer, I was glad I did. The Thor’s Hammer double IPA was floral and full-bodied, but not overly hot and heavy like some double IPAs can be,” he said. “The Grand Hoppening IPA FLAVOR continued page 36

had a delicious blend of hoppy and malty notes that is more uncommon than some one-dimensional West Coast IPAs.” When it comes to creating their offerings and bringing their vision to fruition, Bambi said she and Chris collaborate on everything.

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) was experimental and innovative and influential. His imagery was often dreamlike, and his themes were metaphysical. He felt that the most crucial aspect of his creative process was his faith. If he could genuinely believe in the work he was doing, he was sure he’d succeed at even the most improbable projects. But that was a challenge for him. “There is nothing more difficult to achieve than a passionate, sincere, quiet faith,” he said. In accordance with your astrological omens during the next 12 months, Aries, I suggest you draw inspiration from his approach. Cultivating a passionate, sincere, quiet faith will be more attainable than it has ever been.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the first season of the animated TV series South Park, its two creators produced an episode called “Make Love, Not Warcraft.” The story lovingly mocked nerds and the culture of online gaming. Soon after sending his handiwork to executive producers, Libran co-creator Trey Parker decided it was a terrible show that would wreck his career. He begged for it to be withheld from broadcast. But the producers ignored his pleas. That turned out to be a lucky break. The episode ultimately won an Emmy Award and became popular with fans. I foresee the possibility of comparable events in your life, Libra. Don’t be too sure you know which of your efforts will work best.

TAURUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Nobel Prize-winning Scorpio author André Gide (1869-1951) had an unusual relationship with his wife Madeline Rondeaux. Although married for 43 years, they never had sex. As long as she was alive, he never mentioned her in his extensive writings. But after she died, he wrote a book about their complex relationship. Here’s the best thing he ever said about her: “I believe it was through her that I drew the need for truthfulness and sincerity.” I’d love for you to be lit up by an influence like Madeline Rondeaux, Scorpio. I’d be excited for you to cultivate a bond with a person who will inspire your longing to be disarmingly candid and refreshingly genuine. If there are no such characters in your life, go looking for them. If there are, deepen your connection.

(April 20-May 20): “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware,” said philosopher Martin Buber. How true! I would add that the traveler is wise to prepare for the challenges and opportunities of those secret destinations ... and be alert for them if they appear ... and treat them with welcome and respect, not resistance and avoidance. When travelers follow those protocols, they are far more likely to be delightfully surprised than disappointingly surprised. Everything I just said will apply to you in the coming weeks, Taurus.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini sleight-of-hand artist Apollo Robinson may be the best and most famous pickpocket in the world. Fortunately, he uses his skill for entertainment purposes only. He doesn’t steal strangers’ money and valuables from their pockets and purses and jackets. On one occasion, while in the company of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, he pilfered multiple items from a Secret Service agent assigned to protect Carter. He gave the items back, of course. It was an amusing and humbling lesson that inspired many law-enforcement officials to seek him out as a consultant. I suspect that in the coming weeks, you may have comparable abilities to trick, fool, beguile, and enchant. I hope you will use your superpowers exclusively to carry out good deeds and attract inviting possibilities.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Many sportswriters regard Michael Jordan as the greatest basketball player ever. He was the Most Valuable Player five times and had a higher scoring average than anyone else who has ever played. And yet he confesses, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life.” He says the keys to his success are his familiarity with bungles and his determination to keep going despite his bungles. I invite you to meditate on Jordan’s example in the coming days.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In his poem “Song of Poplars,” Leo author Aldous Huxley speaks to a stand of poplar trees. He asks them if they are an “agony of undefined desires.” Now I will pose the same question to you, Leo. Are you an agony of undefined desires? Or are you a treasury of well-defined desires? I hope it’s the latter. But if it’s not, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to fix the problem. Learning to be precise about the nature of your longings is your growing edge, your frontier. Find out more about what you want, please.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Black is your lucky color for the foreseeable future. I invite you to delve further than ever before into its mysteries and meanings and powers. I encourage you to celebrate blackness and honor blackness and nurture blackness in every way you can imagine. For inspiration, meditate on how, in art, black is the presence of all colors. In printing, black is a color needed to produce other colors. In mythology, blackness is the primal source of all life and possibility. In psychology, blackness symbolizes the rich unconscious core from which all vitality emerges.

SCORPIO

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A fashion company called Tibi sells a silver mini dress that features thousands of sequins. It’s also available in gold. I wonder if the designers were inspired by poet Mark Doty’s line: “No such thing, the queen said, as too many sequins.” In my astrological estimation, the coming weeks will be a fun time to make this one of your mottoes. You will have a poetic license to be flashy, shiny, bold, swanky, glittery, splashy, sparkling, and extravagant. If expressing such themes in the way you dress isn’t appealing, embody more metaphorical versions.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “I have pasts inside me I did not bury properly,” writes Nigerian poet Ijeoma Umebinyuo. Isn’t that true for each of us? Don’t we all carry around painful memories as if they were still fresh and current? With a little work, we could depotentize at least some of them and consign them to a final resting place where they wouldn’t nag and sting us anymore. The good news, Capricorn, is that the coming weeks will be an excellent time to do just that: bury any pasts that you have not properly buried before now.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In February 1967, the Beatles recorded their album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in London. A man claiming to be Jesus Christ convinced Paul McCartney to let him weasel his way into the studio. McCartney later said that he was pretty sure it wasn’t the real Jesus. But if by some remote chance it was, he said, he didn’t want to make a big mistake. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because I suspect that comparable events may be brewing in your vicinity. My advice: Don’t assume you already know who your teachers and helpers are. Here’s the relevant verse from the Bible: “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): According to Professor of Classics Anne Carson, ancient Greek author Homer “suggested we stand in time with our backs to the future, face to the past.” And why would we do that? To “search for the meaning of the present—scanning history and myth for a precedent.” I bring this to your attention, Pisces, because I think you should avoid such an approach in the coming months. In my view, the next chapter of your life story will be so new, so unpredicted, that it will have no antecedents, no precursory roots that might illuminate its plot and meaning. Your future is unprecedented. ∆
