Water and sewer rate hikes pass in Cambria despite public opposition

F

GRAPHIC BY LENI LITONJUA, DATA FROM CCSD

ive hundred Cambria residents turned in protest forms opposing water and sewer cost increases, but it wasn’t enough to stop the rate hike. The Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) held a hearing during its May 19 meeting to gather community input about the increases, which will raise water rates by 19.2 percent and sewer services by 24.2 percent spread out over the next three years, plus inflationary adjustments for two years after that. Up until the hearing began, the CCSD received protest forms from community members, as is required by Proposition 218 whenever a rate increase is on the table. To overturn a proposed increase, more than 50 percent of customers must turn in a form, which for the CCSD would amount to at least 1,979 protestors. Among those protesting was Cambria resident Christine Heinrichs, a vocal advocate for more transparency in the district’s financial dealings. She lamented the money that CCSD spent to build a water reclamation facility eight years ago under the state’s emergency drought declaration. It still hasn’t been approved for general, non-emergency use by the county. “[The water reclamation facility] probably cost over $20 million, but the district didn’t keep track of costs for the most expensive project Cambria has ever taken on. The district still is unable to account for how the money was spent,” Heinrichs said as she addressed the board. “The district is still—eight years after the project was built—unable to complete the required application for a coastal development permit.” Heinrichs said the district should have instead spent money from past rate increases on water and wastewater infrastructure maintenance—which the board is now promising to spend the money from the upcoming rate increase on. With only about 500 forms received, the Proposition 218 protest failed and the board

voted 5-0 to pass a resolution confirming the rate increases—but not without some hiccups first. After determining that there weren’t enough protest forms to overturn the proposed increase, the board moved to pass the resolution. But the board then discovered that the resolution had a random F printed in the third paragraph of the document, so board President Don Howell asked to “delete the extraneous F.” Then the board discovered that the resolution was missing BIGGER BILLS The Cambria Community Services District passed the section about adjusting a water and sewer rate increase spread out over the next three rates for inflation after the years, but some locals aren’t happy about it. first three years of increases, so District Counsel Timothy Boardmember Cindy Steidel asked Carmel, the Carmel had to add that in.

Steidel replied, “Oh.” “I appreciate all your energy but it’s really Boardmember Harry Farmer told New Times really difficult to watch all of this,” Cambria after the meeting that he “reluctantly voted for resident Laura Swartz said during public comment, which was opened and closed multiple the rate increase because we need the funds to make the major improvements at the sewer times due to the various reiterations of the plant.” resolution. “Stuff hasn’t been proofread and “I totally understand the concerns of the then after the protest then you change the members of this community with regard to how resolutions … I mean, I don’t think this is done the rate increase monies have been spent and … properly in my opinion.” Swartz was concerned that there was no limit their skepticism as to how monies will be spent to how much rates could increase from inflation. in the future,” Farmer said after the motion passed at the May 19 meeting. “I believe we “I think it would have been much more have an obligation to the ratepayers that hasn’t appropriate to put some type of cap on it so that we know what we’re living with,” she said. really been addressed in the past.” Δ In response to Swartz’s comment, CCSD —Malea Martin

Dolphin Bay Resort faces lawsuit over alleged sexual battery

“As he did this, he made sexual grunting and moaning sounds,” the document said. Doe alerted resort staff about the incident afterwards, and even filed a report with the Pismo Beach Police Department, according to the lawsuit. But her efforts seemed futile. “Upon information and belief, defendants [Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa] took no action in relation to the therapist and his negligent and/ or intentional improper touching of plaintiff [Doe] and other DB [Dolphin Bay] location spa customers … the therapist remained employed and/or is still employed at the DB location after plaintiff’s report of his committed sexual assault,” the complaint stated. Attorneys Robert Thompson and Kristen Vierhaus demanded a jury trial on seven causes of action—negligence, negligent and intentional inflictions of emotional distress, sexual battery, gender violence, Ralph Act violation, and false imprisonment. Overall, the complaint targets the abuse itself and what Vierhaus called Dolphin Bay’s “ratification” of the therapist’s behavior. “Although they took down the report and listened to her, they were pretty dismissive, and then they did not tell her whether or not they were going to fire him. It doesn’t make sense,”

A lawsuit against a Pismo Beach spa resort identified a trend allegedly rising in the United States: abuse at the hands of massage therapists. “Negligent and/or intentional improper touching committed by massage therapists is a national epidemic, with hundreds of reports of such conduct by therapists occurring throughout the country,” stated the complaint filed on May 23 by Burlingame-based Thompson Law Offices on behalf of a Jane Doe. It details that Doe visited Pismo Beach’s Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa on March 5 to receive a massage. The therapist, described as a white man between his late 40s and early 50s who is approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, proceeded to assault Doe midway through the massage. At one point, the complaint alleged, the therapist placed an eye pillow over Doe’s eyes and “touched and manipulated [her] clitoris two to three times.” Later, he groped and “began ‘stretching’” Doe.

Vierhaus said. “There should be a zero tolerance policy for sexual assault.” Sexual harassment by massage therapists has increasingly gained public attention over the last decade. It came to a head in 2017 after a BuzzFeed News investigation reported that more than 180 people filed sexual assault lawsuits, police reports, and state board complaints against Massage Envy spas. Vierhaus said that the incident at Dolphin Bay is just one of the many massage therapist abuse cases her firm is handling. “We have handled close to 100, if not more, cases against various Massage Envys in the state of California,” she said. “We have since found this niche. There have been a lot of other victims in sort of one-off places, similar to this case, who experienced a similar situation. I’m working on four to five other massage sexual assault cases.” She added that establishing evidence for such cases relies heavily on documents. Currently, the law firm is trying to access the police report filed by Doe, along with the accused therapist’s client list to see whether they can identify a pattern of abuse. Vierhaus said that Dolphin Bay has 30 days to respond to the lawsuit. NEWS continued page 6

The resort declined to speak with New Times. “Information about the psychiatry and patterns of behavior of sexual predators, they don’t do it once, especially something as intense and blatant as this assault. He’s been likely doing this a long time,” Vierhaus said. “Usually, when we get the customer list and are able to call others, it turns out very quickly that there are other victims. Many are interested in coming forward, and many aren’t comfortable doing so. Only 4 to 5 percent of victims come forward.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

The Hub project gets SLO city approval, faces appeal

A budding collaboration between eight local businesses is poised to bring an eclectic mix of food, drinks, games, and entertainment to upper Monterey Street in San Luis Obispo—if it can clear a neighbor’s appeal. On May 11, the SLO Planning Commission gave the green light to Central Coast Brewing and its partners to establish The Hub, a proposed bar, restaurant, and entertainment venue in 12,180 square feet of space that once held a furniture store. The project at 1701 Monterey St. brings together Central Coast Brewing, KROBAR Craft Distillery, Nautical Bean Coffee, Art’s Cyclery, What the Truck Mobile Cuisine, Lone Oak Seltzer, SLO Axe, and Whalebird Kombucha, according to city documents. The offerings at The Hub would include: food vendors and trucks; breweries, distilleries, kombucha and seltzer makers, wineries, and coffee shops; a bike shop; live music; and outdoor games like corn hole, ax throwing, and pickleball, and indoor games like pingpong, billiards, and bocce ball. “You start getting a really fun synergy,” Central Coast Brewing owner George Peterson told New Times. “There are no exclusions here.” The idea of The Hub goes back many years, Peterson said, but the concept recently picked up real momentum when Central Coast Brewing found out that its original location at 1422 Monterey St. was going to be torn down and replaced with housing. Facing a move-out date of October, Peterson said he hopes to get The Hub up and running relatively quickly, noting that he and his partners are not proposing to

make major modifications to the building. On top of the more than 12,000 square feet of indoor space, the site also has 12,000 square feet of outdoor space. At the May 11 Planning Commission meeting, Peterson told city officials that the project’s aim is to inject new energy and amenities into the upper Monterey Street corridor of SLO. “It really is just a place to bring a little life to … what is kind of a wasteland currently with that part of town,” Peterson said. The project’s residential neighbors across SLO Creek, on San Luis Drive, voiced concerns and some opposition to The Hub. On May 19, neighboring resident Hana Novak filed an appeal of the Planning Commission’s 4-1 approval to the City Council. Neighbors voiced a range of concerns about the project’s potential noise, light, and traffic impacts, and its compliance with city code. The dissenting commissioner on the project, Mike Wulkan, sided with that perspective. San Luis Drive resident Rick Chapman and others challenged the city’s considering of the The Hub as a similar use to the property’s past tenants under the California Environmental Quality Act. “In addition to the innately louder nature of most of the businesses that will be a part of The Hub, the increased vehicular traffic, car lights, doors slamming, etc., is going to be profoundly different in terms of sound and light impact on surrounding neighbors,” Chapman wrote in a letter to the city. —Peter Johnson

SLO County’s CalFresh enrollment rate one of the lowest statewide

In 2020, San Luis Obispo County had one of the lowest CalFresh participation rates in California, according to data released earlier this month. But community partners like the Department of Social Services and SLO Food Bank are looking to change that. CalFresh is California’s federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. It provides financial assistance for buying food in the form of a debit card for low-income Californians. SLO County ranks 57th out of 58 counties for its program reach index, which measures what percentage of those eligible are participating in CalFresh. According to the data, only 47.6 percent

orn in California, Ron Eto Kikuchi was just 18 months old when he was imprisoned by the United States government, solely on the basis of his Japanese ancestry. Ron and his mother, Susy Eto Kikuchi Bauman, were taken first to Colorado and then to Arkansas under President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066, which forced all people of Japanese ancestry living west of the Rocky Mountains in the United States to be imprisoned in concentration camps. Ron’s father, Leo Kikuchi, enlisted in the Army “to show our loyalty to the United States of America,” Ron said. Leo died fighting for his country. Not long after arriving in the prison camps, Susy gave birth to Ron’s brother Gerry. He was delivered by a man also interned in the camp named Dr. Taira. Flash forward about 60 years later to 2002. Susy was strolling through the newly unveiled Eto Park on Brook Street in San Luis Obispo when she was introduced to Mary Taira, who served as an interpreter for leading Japanese garden architect Kodo Matsubara while he designed Eto Park. That’s when Susy made a fortuitous discovery: Mary was married to Dr. Taira, the man who delivered her son Gerry in Arkansas decades earlier. “After all those years, those two reunited in that little patch of grass there in that park,” said Jim Brabeck, a longtime SLO Rotary Club member and CEO of Farm Supply Company. “I thought that was pretty profound. … I just got goosebumps.

chances of that after all these years?” Brabeck was a key initiator for having Eto Park created and dedicated in honor of the Eto family 20 years ago in May 2002. The park was refurbished in honor of its 20th anniversary, and a rededication ceremony was held on May 12, 2022, attended by community supporters and members of the Eto family, including 102-year-old Susy. Masaji Eto, Susy’s brother, worked alongside Brabeck at Farm Supply for years. “He had been chairman of the board of directors and very influential in the business community as well,” Brabeck said. “His [and Susy’s] father, PAYING TRIBUTE Jim Brabeck, a longtime Tameji Eto, had been very friend of the Eto family, spoke at the May 12 Eto instrumental in agriculture with Park rededication. the Japanese community.” But when the United States’ combat team in U.S. military history.

Unfair? Nonprofits question county’s handling of Rescue Plan funds

I

n March, when San Luis Obispo County opened a window for local nonprofits to apply for COVID-19 recovery grants funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), Big Brothers Big Sisters of SLO County CEO Jenny Luciano joined dozens of other nonprofit leaders in applying for aid. The pandemic had taxed local youth and families in unimaginable ways, Luciano said, and Big Brothers Big Sisters did all it could during the crisis to enhance its youth mentoring program to help at-risk families. “Throughout COVID, we heard over and over and over again that parents were struggling to maintain housing, that they needed resources for their children, mental health care, academic support for tutoring,” Luciano said. “Our agency just felt an ethical responsibility to do everything that we could to transition to the online environment and provide families the support that they needed to stay afloat.” While groups like Luciano’s stepped up during the pandemic, those efforts were expensive and often coincided with

fundraising event cancellations and a decline in donations—leaving many in precarious financial states that persist to this day. That’s why nearly 60 local nonprofits jumped to apply for ARPA grants. The county set aside $3 million of the $55 million it had received in the stimulus package for the grants, offering a minimum of $25,000 per grant. Many of those nonprofit applicants were “shocked” to see the final recommendations that came to the SLO County Board of Supervisors on May 17. Only seven nonprofits received grant recommendations, and county administrators revealed that they made a late call to prioritize nonprofits that “address housing and homelessness’’— even though $6 million in APRA funds were already earmarked for homelessness. Several of the nonprofits poised to miss out on grants spoke at the May 17 meeting. Those leaders argued that the county’s formal request for applications (RFA) issued in March didn’t mention that homelessness was a priority, and the decision to shift gears happened behind the scenes and after all the applications had been submitted. According to the RFA, the grants’ purpose was to provide “local assistance in the form of competitive grant funding for nonprofit organizations that responds to the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,” and that “separate applications have been or will be released

for child care, homeless, and economic development and business grants.” Michael Boyer, CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of the Central Coast, said the county’s late hour change was unfair and demonstrated a lack of integrity. “It was very shocking to us,” Boyer told New Times. “I’m happy that any nonprofit gets the money; I’m more concerned with the process. It’s about following the RFA you put out.” Boyer and others noted that if the county had been upfront about its priorities, they would have approached their applications differently. “We serve kids on the edge of homelessness every day—our services prevent homelessness,” Boyer said of the Boys and Girls Club’s programs. After the feedback, the supervisors voted unanimously to table the recommendations and directed county staff to revisit the grants. But the board still asked staff to make homelessness a priority. “Homelessness is far and away the biggest issue we have in front of us,” 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson said. The seven nonprofits initially recommended for funding included the Community Action Partnership of SLO County (CAPSLO), which was set to receive a high of $850,000 for outreach at safe parking sites, and Restorative Partners, which was slotted for $50,000— a group low—for job training and homelessness prevention at The Bridge Café, which will open inside the County Government Center.

Leaders at those nonprofits spoke to the board on May 17 about the importance of their grants to preserve or expand their services. ECHO CEO Wendy Lewis said that her recommended grant would help keep ECHO’s new homeless shelter in Paso Robles up and running. “If this recommendation doesn’t move forward, we’re going to have to critically look at reducing services,” Lewis told the board. “The funding that was meant to support the project will be running out. And we don’t want to look at going backwards.” Third District Supervisor Dawn OrtizLegg expressed regret for how the process played out. She serves on a subcommittee with 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold that provides oversight of the county’s ARPA process. “I take full responsibility. I had my fingerprints all over it. It’s a kick to the gut,” Ortiz-Legg told New Times. “We heard loudly and clearly the concerns of nonprofits, and rightly so. And we’re now reviewing everything.” Luciano, with Big Brothers Big Sisters, said she knows that the supervisors are “fair-minded people” wanting to do the right thing. But she’s disappointed with how the grants were handled, especially with so many nonprofits’ futures on the line. “To have that kind of backdoor decision making happen about the final outcome was really unfortunate,” she said. ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

A housing problem We need to fix our housing market

L

ike many issues humans face, homelessness is as complex as we make it, and so are the solutions. Is it about mental health? Maybe. About 50 percent of the local homeless population reported psychiatric conditions or PTSD. But plenty of people deal with mental health struggles while in a home. Is it about substance abuse and addiction? Sometimes. About 36 percent of unsheltered residents reported health conditions related to alcohol and drug use. But there are plenty of people struggling with addiction and substance abuse under the roof of a home where they can get more consistent treatment. In a 2018 survey, 16 percent of adult SLO County residents reported that they needed professional help for mental health or substance abuse. Is it about job training? Could be. More than 80 percent are unemployed and 30 percent cite a lost job as the primary event that led to homelessness. But it’s easier to train someone for a job when they have a home. Life is complex. Our economy is complex. Housing, or the lack thereof, is just one backstop to myriad issues that can arise when individuals navigate life in our complex economy with its range of challenges. Mental health, substance abuse, unemployment, and lack of job training—these certainly make it harder to find a stable home. When finding a home looks like the late stage in a game of musical chairs, a lot of people are going to get left out. The problem doesn’t have to be complex: just fix the game. Just add more chairs. Homelessness is, first and foremost, a

housing problem. For all the talking points from our elected officials about how complex the problem is, potential root causes, where our homeless population comes from, and potential emergency measures and organizational charts that might help solve the problem, it seems like we put a lot of effort into ignoring this simple truth. Maybe that’s the point? Maybe to acknowledge the housing problem would be to acknowledge that our housing market is failing, not just failing those who don’t have a home, but those who do and struggle to keep it. Those who are cost-burdened by rent and can’t save for the future, or go back to school, or start a business. Those who have given up trying to make life work in their hometown, with their current job, or within their current community, and move elsewhere. Homelessness is just the most poignant portrayal of this failure that touches all of us. As much as SLO County talks about mental health, substance abuse, and job training as it relates to solutions to homelessness, the fact is that poverty, mental health, and substance abuse do not explain higher rates of homelessness. Nor does our mild climate, according to the data. According to researchers from Sightline Institute, “housing market conditions explain the most variation in rates of homelessness observed around the country.” Individual risk factors matter, but “the consequences of individual vulnerabilities are far more severe in locations with less accommodating housing markets,” meaning high rents and low vacancy rates, specifically. SLO County’s housing market checks all the boxes for

Opinion The old switcheroo

D

o you have any idea how hard it is piss off a nonprofit? They’re filled with really nice people trying to do really nice things for people in need. They’re like saints or angels who have to beg for money to keep their programs going—programs that wouldn’t be needed if our government and social safety net actually worked. So imagine my surprise when our beloved SLO County Board of Supervisors, the most functional and effective governing body to ever lead a county (wink-wink), managed to upset local nonprofits such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of SLO County, French Hospital Medical Center Foundation, Paso Robles Youth Arts Center, and Boys and Girls Club of the Central Coast. How did you manage it, dear supervisors? Easy-peasy-fast-and-sleazy, that’s how! The county invited local nonprofits to apply for grants funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The county scored a cool $55 million and generously offered to set aside half a percent ($3 million) to dole out to organizations, and almost 60 nonprofits lined up with their gruel bowls requesting “more, sir.” But then the county suddenly decided that, “Yeah, we changed our minds, and now we’re only going to give to nonprofits that address housing and homelessness.” “The fact that the intention of the funding shifted midstream is an unfair process as far as I’m concerned,” Big

Brothers Big Sisters of SLO County CEO Jenny Luciano told New Times. “It was very shocking to us,” Boys and Girls Club of the Central Coast CEO Michael Boyer said. “I’m happy that any nonprofit gets the money; I’m more concerned with the process. It’s about following the RFA [request for applications] you put out.” What’s really a pisser is that both organizations do help children and families avoid homelessness! If they knew that was going to be the focus of the funding, they would have written their grant requests accordingly. Not only that, but the county already earmarked $6 million of the $55 million ARPA funds to address homelessness. After the board’s shady switcheroo, the normally nice nonprofits that applied but were denied gave the board an earful, and so the board voted unanimously to table their previous recommendations and directed county staff to revisit the grants … but “you know, still prioritize homelessness.” What does that even mean? Go back and look at the rejected grants, see that— as written—they’re not directly focusing on the homeless problem, and reject them again? WTF? And speaking of F’s, did you hear about the Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) and its need to “delete the extraneous F”? I guess the CCSD

The Peach Rebellion is available in hardback at the downtown San Luis Obispo Barnes & Noble. Author Wendelin Van Draanen will be there on Sunday, May 29, between 1 and 2 p.m.

When New Times spoke with her on May 20, Van Draanen was on day three of a 13day book promotion tour of nine schools and 19 stores that will culminate at the Barnes & Noble in downtown San Luis Obispo on May 29, where she’ll be signing her new book and other favorites from 1 to 2 p.m. Two young women tell the post-Depression, post-World War II era story: Peggy, who grows up on a peach farm, and Ginny Rose, whose parents migrated to California from Oklahoma during the Great Depression. Peggy's parents own a peach orchard, and her brother focuses on the fieldwork while Peggy mans the farmstand, including selling and baking peach pies and preserves. Ginny Rose works at a peach cannery, where she stands for hours in a hot warehouse sorting peaches before going home to tend to the household chores and her THE PEACH REBELLION Set in the 1940s three little sisters.

The Pismo Beach author’s first work of historical fiction is full of dribbling, sticky peaches, their juice, pits, and fuzz, as well as a summer of learning and lessons for three high school girls from very different backgrounds in the 1940s Central Valley. “It’s a story about bridging differences and coming together as people who are very different to accomplish a big thing,” Van Draanen said. “What brings them together is a monumental thing, and they end up breaking a lot of rules and breaking convention and they go on a big adventure.” Van Draanen has written more than 30 novels for young readers and teens, including the 18-book Edgar Allan Poe Award-winning Sammy Keyes mystery series and Flipped, which became a Warner Brothers feature film with Rob Reiner directing. Right before the pandemic started, she released her first work of non-fiction, Hope in the Mail: Reflections on Writing and Life, which is part writing guide and part memoir. She said she started writing The Peach Rebellion about three years ago.

Men trouble

A

lex Garland (writer-director of Ex Machina and Annihilation and writer of 28 Days Later …) helms this psychological horror film about Harper (Jessie Buckley), who after a personal tragedy travels to a country estate to get away and process her loss. Once there, however, rather than healing, she encounters a series of men (all played by Rory Kinnear), who torment her further. (100 min.) Glen What did my eyeballs just see? Holy moly, this is a weird, challenging, unique film about a woman processing grief and guilt. It’s also about misogyny and all the ways men manipulate, gaslight, and abuse women. When Harper arrives at the rented country house, she’s greeted by Geoffrey (Kinnear, in one of his many roles), who manages the rental. He notices she’s bitten into an apple from the tree in the yard. “Mustn’t do that,” he says. “Forbidden fruit.” It’s his idea of a joke and the beginning of a long series of disconnected interactions between Harper and the various men—and in one case a young boy with Kinnear’s CGI face—she encounters during her “vacation.” It’s a really unusual piece of filmmaking from a gifted director, and (warning!) it’s punctuated with some very disturbing and gory images and a deeply unsettling overall vibe. I’m glad I saw it, but it’s not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. Anna If the divide between the audience score and critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes is any indication, not everyone’s cup of tea is right. Personally, I was riveted by this film, but that certainly doesn’t mean it was a pleasant watch. Harper is haunted and also in urgent need to move on from the tragedy of her husband’s death, a death that came as she was desperately trying to leave the relationship. Her guilt around it all is crushing, and in many ways this movie seems to me to be a showcase of the monsters and beasts that trauma creates. Harper is there to heal, yet she can’t seem to be left alone. Around every corner is another man—whether it is the naked, boil-covered stalker in the garden of her rented home, the vicar who betrays her

THE GARDEN OF EDEN? Jessie Buckley stars as Harper, a young woman trying to overcome a terrible loss during a vacation to the countryside, but instead she encounters a series of sinister men, in Men, screening at local theaters.

Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 when she shares her vulnerability, or the boy who turns into a snarling ass when Harper refuses a game of hide-and-seek. I have to give props to Kinnear here. He took on a lot in this film, and he manages to evoke an unsettling terror as the face of all men in this country English village. Buckley is superb as Harper as well; you can feel her fear through the screen. Glen It’s worth mentioning that the gore notwithstanding, this is a truly beautiful looking film. Garland once again teamed with cinematographer Rob Hardy, who worked with him on Ex Machina and Annihilation. They’re currently filming Garland’s next film, Civil War. I wish I knew what it was going to be about, but the plot’s under wraps. I’ll definitely watch anything Garland does. Men is absolutely uncomfortable viewing, which may be driving its low Rotten Tomatoes audience score. Still, Hardy’s camerawork

and the English countryside in which Men is set is breathtaking. There’s a dreamy, unreal, fantasy quality about the film, as if what we’re seeing isn’t real but instead we’re inside Harper’s head as she works through her trauma. If you have the courage, see it! Anna It is so beautiful! The juxtaposition of the gore alongside the beauty of the countryside and the house itself is really arresting. While I totally think this film is worth watching, it may be a tricky one to recommend to everyone. I think there are a lot of people who just aren’t going to like how visceral it gets, and there is a whole lot of “what is going on?” while the movie plays out. Admittedly, even days later I’m still working at laying all the puzzle pieces into place. I’m a big fan of Garland, so I’m with you on watching anything he puts out. He has a knack at creating unsettling universes in his films, and Men is no exception. This film took some really wild turns, especially at the end, and it’s one I won’t stop thinking about for a while. Δ Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and freelancer Anna Starkey write Split Screen.

Unfortunately for Stede, pirating is a messy, dangerous job—not something he’s really built for. He wants to read bedtime stories to his crew and teach them the ins and outs of a proper table setting. His quarters are filled with fine clothing and books, and his crew doesn’t know what to do with this odd character. Soon mutiny is afoot. Stede is almost as charming as actor Rhys Darby who plays him, and soon some of the crew start to warm to his weird ways.

Food

BY MALEA MARTIN PHOTOS COURTESY OF SCOTT D. ROBERTS

Fresh out the oven After a unexpected tragedy forced Ocean Front Pizza to close its doors for the winter, the pizza shop is now open and baking some of the freshest pies around

A

fter spending a few decades wearing a variety of hats in the entertainment industry, best friends Scott D. Roberts and Scott Disharoon decided it was time to try something totally different: take over a hole-in-the-wall pizza shop. Roberts fell in love with the Central Coast region years ago when his documentary film, GasHole, had a stint at The Palm Theatre in San Luis Obispo. An opportunity arose for the pair to purchase Ocean Front Pizza in Cayucos last year, and they got to work perfecting their pizza pie.

“He was always interested in food—he was a foodie for years,” Roberts said of Disharoon. “He consulted with Peter Reinhart”—author of American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza—“to work on the sauce and our dough for months and months, and finally got it to where it was like, this is it.” Roberts and Disharoon took over ownership in August 2021. “People were responding to the pizza, our numbers kept increasing, and we were really happy,” Roberts said. “Then on Christmas Eve, my buddy [Disharoon] had a heart attack and never woke up.” Losing a best friend and his business partner all at once was incredibly tough, Roberts said. “I didn’t know what I was going to do,” he said. “If we were going to sell it, or what, because it was really his dream. We closed from Christmas Eve until almost February. I decided to reopen, hired some people. We keep growing every month, and here we are.” While Roberts OCEAN VIEWS Grab a whole pizza or just a slice from Ocean never expected to be Front Pizza and then head to the beach, which is literally steps doing it alone, his from the hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Cayucos. passion for simple,

delicious pizza—and for carrying on Disharoon’s legacy—is evident in every slice. Roberts arrives at his little shop on Ocean Front Avenue every morning at 8 a.m. to start kneading a new batch of dough for the day. The pizzas are always made with fresh ingredients, using dough and sauce recipes carefully concocted by Disharoon before he passed away. “We produce a lot of pizzas. It’s amazing how many pizzas we make,” Roberts said. “We make a certain amount of dough every day, and if we run out, sometimes we’re done at 5:30. It’s not that we’re trying to [limit]—it’s a space issue, because we’re very small.” When perfecting the dough recipe, it was important to Roberts and Disharoon that their pizza taste delicious immediately out of the oven, but that it would also make great leftovers. “That’s something that we’re really happy about: A lot of people have said, ‘Your pizza is great the next day too,’” said Roberts, who personally enjoys eating his pizza leftovers cold.

Find your pie

Find Ocean Front Pizza’s menu online at oceanfrontpizza.com. Order pie by phone at (805) 995-2979 or visit the restaurant at 156 1/2 Ocean Front Ave. Cayucos. Open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Ocean Front Pizza stops taking phone orders at 7:30 p.m.

Equal attention to detail goes into Ocean Front’s sauce and cheese. The cheese is shredded straight off the block, making it as fresh as possible and free of chemical preservatives found in bagged cheese. “We wanted a sauce that uses really fresh ingredients,” Roberts said. “We dress it up with some secret stuff we put in there. Just a nice balance, not too spicy, not too sweet. We let the tomatoes speak for themselves.” The most popular pie is the Ocean Front Combo, Roberts said. It’s loaded with pepperoni, salami, sausage, red bell pepper, mushroom, red onion, black olives, plus freshly shredded cheese and house marinara.

EMPLOYMENT

STAFF WRITER

New Times in San Luis Obispo County is looking for its next staff writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, sourcewrangling, story-chasing someone. Are you sick of editing or regurgitating press releases day after day? Or maybe it’s those damn list things—you know the ones: “Top 10 hottest places to eat your lunch on a rainy day.” Or maybe it’s just not being able to put the time and reporting into a story that deserves it: the weeks and repeated phone calls that give a story what it needs to ripen into the hard-charging, data-filled narrative it’s dying to be; the time that turns a “meh” story into one that blows a hole in the status quo. Can you see the big picture of what a story means to a community? Is that what drives you? Do you know what it takes to—yes, we know, it’s cliché— make a difference in the lives of the people you cover? Does that sort of thing matter to you? If so, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for: a staff writer who isn’t afraid to take on the tedious, the tenuous, or the talented. That certain someone who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to the communities of San Luis Obispo County. Agricultural, water, and environmental advocacy aren’t the only things that drive this place—although those are pretty juicy beats. There’s more, and we want to hire someone who can drive his or herself to unearth those stories and tell them in a meaningful way. Let us know if you’ve got what it takes. We dare you.

SAN LUIS OBISPO CITY COUNCIL NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The San Luis Obispo City Council invites all interested persons to attend a public hearing on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. held in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 990 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo. Please note that Zoom participation will not be supported, as this will be an in-person meeting. Meetings can be viewed remotely on Government Access Channel 20 or streamed live from the City’s YouTube channel at http://youtube.slo.city. Public comment, prior to the start of the meeting, may be submitted in writing via U.S. Mail delivered to the City Clerk’s office at 990 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 or by email to emailcouncil@slocity.org. PUBLIC HEARING ITEM: •

The City Council will consider adopting the 2022-23 Supplemental Budget. Per the City Charter, Article XIII, Section 802, the City Council must appropriate a budget for the upcoming fiscal year by July 1st. The City’s budget policy allows for a two-year budget to be adopted. However, the appropriation of funding is only given for one fiscal year, necessitating an annual budget hearing for subsequent appropriation. Consistent with the City’s two-year budgetary process, the 2022-23 Budget presented for adoption was prepared using the adopted 2021-23 Financial Plan as its foundation. However, unlike a typical budget cycle, the City’s fiscal forecast changed so drastically after initial adoption in June 2021 that Council adopted changes to the 2021-22 as well as the 2022-23 budget with the Mid-year Review on February 15, 2022. For more information, contact Natalie Harnett, Principal Budget Analyst, for the City’s Finance Department at (805) 781-7128 or by email, nharnett@slocity.org.

• A public hearing to introduce an Ordinance amending Title 10, Chapter 52 (Parking Meters), of the Municipal Code to modify the on-street and surface parking lot hourly rates and establish paid parking in the upper Monterey Street area. This item also includes two proposed Resolutions to: 1) establish parking rates for the City’s Parking Structures, which will go into effect on July 1, 2023, and 2) approve modifications to the Parking Citation Penalty Schedule to increase fine amounts for three different parking violations (expired parking session, parking within an intersection, and parking on roadside of vehicle). For more information, contact Alexander Fuchs, Parking Services Supervisor, for the City’s Parking Division at (805) 781-7553 or by email, afuchs@slocity.org. The City Council may also discuss other hearings or business items before or after the items listed above. If you challenge the proposed project in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City Council at, or prior to, the public hearing. Council Agenda Reports for this meeting will be available for review one week in advance of the meeting date on the City’s website, under the Public Meeting Agendas web page: https://www.slocity.org/government/mayor-andcity-council/agendas-and-minutes. Please call the City Clerk’s Office at (805) 781-7100 for more information. The City Council meeting will be televised live on Charter Cable Channel 20 and live streaming on the City’s YouTube channel http://youtube.slo.city. May 26, 2022

We are assisting the Beneficiary to collecting a debt and any information we obtain will be used for that purpose whether received orally or in writing. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 or visit this Internet Website www. nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2022-00100. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 916-939-0772, or visit this internet website www. nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case

LEGAL NOTICES 2022-00100 to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

WHAT:

A Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (Draft PEIR) for the Paso Basin Land Use Management Area (PBLUMA) Planting Ordinance is complete and available for public review and comment. The document addresses the environmental impacts that may be associated with a new permanent ordinance framework that would allow the County to continue exercising its land use authority to regulate planting of production agriculture irrigated from groundwater wells within the PBLUMA after the termination date of the existing agricultural offset requirements. The new ordinance would also allow an exemption for farms to plant irrigated crops that were not able to be planted under the existing agricultural offset requirements. The proposed ordinance would require a planting permit or exemption verification for new or expanded planting of crops irrigated from groundwater wells within the PBLUMA. Issuance of planting permits allowed under the proposed ordinance would be considered ministerial and would not require discretionary actions. If adopted by the Board of Supervisors in December 2022, the proposed ordinance would be in effect from January 31, 2023 to January 31, 2045, for a total of 22 years. State Clearinghouse #2021080222. The PBLUMA consists of 313,661 acres within unincorporated San Luis Obispo County, and includes the unincorporated communities of Shandon, San Miguel, Creston, and Whitley Gardens. The majority of land within the PBLUMA is designated as Agriculture, Rural Lands, and Residential Rural by the County’s General Plan. Existing uses within the PBLUMA include agricultural uses, including seasonal grazing; residential, commercial, and industrial uses; and vacant, undeveloped land. The PBLUMA is bordered by Monterey County and agriculture uses to the north; grazing land to the east; agriculture uses, single-family residences, and the Los Padres National Forest to the south; and agriculture uses, single-family residences, Camp Roberts, the City of Paso Robles, and the City of Atascadero to the west. A map of the PBLUMA is available at the link below. The project would consist of amendments to the County of San Luis Obispo (County) Land Use Ordinance (Title 22), Health and Sanitation Ordinance (Title 8), and Agriculture and Conservation and Open Space Elements of the County General Plan (LRP2021-00001).

WHERE: The Draft PEIR is available for review or downloading on the Department of Planning & Building’s website at: https:// www.slocounty.ca.gov/Departments/Planning-Building/ Grid-Items/Community-Engagement/Active-PlanningProjects/Paso-Basin-Land-Use-Planting-Ordinance.aspx.

New Times in San Luis Obispo is looking for its next freelance arts writer, but we’re not looking for just any art-ogling, content-wrangling someone. Can you find the unassuming local artist who’s about to blow a hole in the status quo? Do you know what it means to find the culture that matters to a community—the stuff that gives a population its heartbeat, its soul? That sweet spot where culture, politics, art, and society collide into a massive chaotic hurricane of beautiful expression? If so, then that’s exactly who we’re looking for: an arts writer who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to San Luis Obispo County. It’s not all about vineyards, rolling hills, and pounding surf brushed with light, ethereal watercolors (although that’s definitely here). It’s about that human element and where creativity lives.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In defining the essential elements at play in a typical Aries person’s agenda, I’m not inclined to invoke the words “sometimes” or “maybe.” Nor do I make frequent use of the words “periodically,” “if,” or “ordinarily.” Instead, my primary identifying term for many Aries characters is “NOW!!!” with three exclamation points. In referring to your sign’s experiences, I also rely heavily on the following descriptors: pronto, presto, push, directly, why not?, engage, declare, activate, venture into, enterprising, seize, deliver, and wield. You are authorized to fully activate and deploy these qualities in the next three weeks.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I like Joan Didion’s definitions of selfrespect. As you enter a favorable phase for deepening and enhancing your self-respect, they may be helpful. Didion said self-respect is a “sense of one’s intrinsic worth,” and added, “People who respect themselves are willing to accept the risk that the venture will go bankrupt, that the liaison may not turn out to be one in which every day is a holiday. They are willing to invest something of themselves.” And maybe the most essential thing about self-respect, according to Didion, is that it is “a discipline, a habit of mind that can never be faked but can be developed, trained, coaxed forth.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Reality is not simply there; it does not simply exist,” claimed author Paul Celan. “It must be sought out and won.” I think that is excellent advice for you right now. But what does it mean in practical terms? How can you seek out and win reality? My first suggestion is to put your personal stamp on every situation you encounter. Do something subtle or strong to make each event serve your specific interests and goals. My second suggestion is to discern the illusions that other people are projecting and avoid buying into those misunderstandings. My third suggestion is to act as if it’s always possible to make life richer, more vivid, and more meaningful. And then figure out how to do that.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Wilma Mankiller was the first female principal chief of the Cherokee Nation. She said, “The cow runs away from the storm, while the buffalo charges directly toward it—and gets through it quicker.” Political analyst Donna Brazile expounded on Mankiller’s strategy: “Whenever I’m confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment. I become the buffalo.” I recommend Mankiller’s and Brazile’s approach for you and me in the coming days, my fellow Cancerian. Now please excuse me as I race in the direction of the squall I see brewing in the distance.

LEO

A brief story, fifty-five words or less, with a headline no longer than seven words.

(July 23-Aug. 22): The New Yorker is an influential Pulitzer Prize-winning magazine that features witty writing and impeccable fact-checking. In 2017, its stories exposed the extensive sexual misconduct committed by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein—and helped lead to his prosecution. How did the magazine get its start? It was co-founded in 1925 by Harold Ross, who had dropped out of school at age 13. He edited every issue for the next 26 years. I’m sensing the possibility of a comparable development in your life, Leo. In the coming months, you may get involved in a project that seems to be beyond the reach of your official capacities or formal credentials. I urge you to proceed as if you can and will succeed.

rigorous ethic with the same fanatical grip, I think you will benefit from doing the best you can. The cosmic rhythms will support you if you make a fun and earnest effort to cultivate liberation through discipline.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Some nights you are the lighthouse, some nights the sea,” writes Libran author Ocean Vuong. According to my astrological analysis, you are better suited to be the lighthouse than the sea in the coming days. Lately, you have thoroughly embodied the sea, and that has prepared you well to provide illumination. You have learned new secrets about the tides and the waves. You are attuned to the rhythms of the undercurrents. So I hope you will now embrace your role as a beacon, Libra. I expect that people will look to your radiance to guide and inspire them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Movie people are possessed by demons, but a very low form of demons,” observes author Edna O’Brien. She should know. She has hung out with many big film stars. Since you’re probably not in the movie business yourself, your demons may be much higher quality than those of celebrity actors and directors. And I’m guessing that in the coming weeks, your demons will become even finer and more interesting than ever before—even to the point that they could become helpers and advisors. For the best results, treat them with respect and be willing to listen to their ideas.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I’m all in favor of you getting what you yearn for. I have no inhibitions or caveats as I urge you to unleash all your ingenuity and hard work in quest of your beautiful goals. And in the hope of inspiring you to upgrade your ability to fulfill these sacred prospects, I offer you a tip from Sagittarian author Martha Beck. She wrote, “To attract something that you want, become as joyful as you think that thing would make you.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): According to author Caroline Myss, “You should see everything about your life as a lesson.” Whoa! Really? Each trip to the grocery store should be a learning opportunity? Myss says yes! For example, let’s say you’re in the snack foods aisle and you’re tempted to put Doritos Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips and Lay’s Barbecue Potato Chips in your cart. But your gut is screaming at you, “That stuff isn’t healthy for you!” And yet you decide to ignore your gut’s advice. You buy and eat both bags. Myss would say you have squandered a learning opportunity: “You’ve harmed yourself by blocking your intuitive voice,” she writes. Now, in accordance with astrological omens, Capricorn, here’s your homework assignment: Regard every upcoming event as a chance to learn how to trust your intuition better.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An Aquarian poet was disturbed when a suitor told her, “I’m really very fond of you.” She responded, “I don’t like fond. It sounds like something you would tell a dog. Give me love, or nothing. Throw your fond in a pond.” I don’t advise you to adopt a similar attitude anytime soon, Aquarius. In my oracular opinion, you should wholeheartedly welcome fondness. You should honor it and celebrate it. In itself, it is a rich, complex attitude. And it may also lead, if you welcome it, to even more complex and profound interweavings.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I need a playlist of all the songs I used to love but forgot about,” wrote Tumblr blogger Yuyuuyuyuu. I think you could use such a playlist, too, Pisces. In fact, I would love to see you receive a host of memos that remind you of all the things you love and need and are interested in—but have forgotten about or neglected. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to recover what has been lost. I hope you will re-establish connections and restore past glories that deserve to accompany you into the future. ∆
