Rally attendees mourn Roe v. Wade, encourage people to vote

D

PHOTO BY BULBUL RAJAGOPAL

éjà vu was in full swing for many of the hundreds gathered in front of the San Luis Obispo Courthouse Annex on June 24. Only this time, people were angrier. One of them was Ann Hou, who made a headturning statement by wearing chains of metal clothes hangers, all hooked to each other with strings of red twine, red wool, and deflated red balloons dangling from them. Hou and the other SLO residents gathered to mourn the overturning of Roe v. Wade carried out by the Supreme Court a few hours prior. “I did this because women will die,” Hou told New Times while gesturing at the hangers that symbolize dangerous abortions and inequality. “The rich women will travel and get the health care they need. Our reproductive organs are not the property of the United States government.” A month and a half ago, SLO residents gathered at the same spot to rally for reproductive rights when news broke of the leaked draft opinion written by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito. It stated that the majority of the court not only wanted to repeal the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that assured federal protection of abortion rights, but also the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey ruling that maintained the right. On June 24, the conservative majority of the Supreme Court revoked that right, and transferred the authority to regulate abortion to the states. For Californians, the next possible solution is to vote on a ballot measure in November that would amend the state constitution so that abortion services and the right to choose are protected. Although the state does have laws protecting abortion rights, state Sen. John Laird (D-Santa Cruz) said, enshrining these protections in the California

Constitution would shield them from further encroachment. “It actually was codified earlier. When I was in the Assembly 15 years ago, there was a threat on Roe v. Wade from the George Bush administration in the Supreme Court,” Laird told New Times. “The law that was in place in California was signed by Ronald Reagan 30 years ago and was very outmoded. Then-Sen. Sheila Kuehl introduced a bill [2002 Reproductive Privacy Act] that would codify a modern abortion law in California code. We did that. But putting it in the constitution is an even stronger statement.” Legislators met the June 30 deadline to qualify the constitutional CROWD COVER Local politicians like Bruce Gibson, amendment for the Nov. 8 general Andy Pease, Jeff Lee, and Dawn Ortiz-Legg were among election ballot, after it received state the hundreds of SLO residents gathered to mourn the Senate and Assembly approval this Roe v.

This is —Bulbul Rajagopal

Primary election results solidify with latest count

election certification expected next week. SLO County voter turnout is sitting at about 47 percent, which is higher than the statewide turnout of 33 percent. Most local candidates expressed either surprise or frustration with the county’s elongated vote count. The day after the election, June 8, Clerk-Recorder Elaina Cano announced that some 48,000 ballots—more than half of the election—still needed counting. That was largely due to the number of mail-in ballots that arrived on June 6 or 7, as well as a lack of inperson voting, she said. “I knew there was going to be a lot of them,” incumbent 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson told New Times. “But there were more than I expected. We’re now understanding what a largely vote-by-mail election looks like.” In the four-man race for the 2nd District seat, Gibson saw his share of the vote dip under 50 percent, which means he’ll likely face a runoff election in November against the current runner-up, Bruce Jones. As of the latest count, Gibson held 47.9 percent of the vote, with Jones at 18.9 percent, Geoff Auslen at 17.3 percent, and John Whitworth at 15.9 percent. “It’s not a surprising result,” Gibson said. “It’s within the range of what we expected. I’ve already been laying the groundwork for going again in November.”

Following the largest single day of vote counting of the past three weeks, the June 7 primary election results are finally solidifying in San Luis Obispo County. With 97 percent of the vote in, 4th District county supervisor candidate Jimmy Paulding is keeping his narrow lead over incumbent Lynn Compton—a 51.8 percent to 48.2 percent edge equating to 732 votes. Incumbent Dawn Ortiz-Legg still has a large lead for her 3rd District supervisor seat, taking 62.8 percent of the vote, while a crowded race for 2nd District supervisor is likely continuing on to November. Paulding stopped short of declaring victory to New Times on June 29, but the Arroyo Grande City Council member said he’s “feeling good and looking forward to the next round of results.” “I’m glad that we just waited patiently and didn’t declare victory too early. It has been nerve-wracking watching the gap narrow,” Paulding said, referring to how his large lead on election night dwindled in recent counts. On June 28, the SLO County elections office counted more than 15,000 additional ballots, which brought the total number of ballots counted to 85,493, with 2,845 still left to count. A final count is scheduled for July 1, with

If Paulding defeats Compton and Ortiz-Legg seals her victory, that means the 2nd District runoff will determine the political lean of the Board of Supervisors for the next two years. Gibson, a Democrat and outspoken opponent of the current conservative majority on the Board of Supervisors, will seek to fend off Jones, a Republican with the endorsement of the SLO County Republican Party, in a redrawn district that includes conservative-leaning communities like Atascadero, Templeton, San Miguel, and Lake Nacimiento. “This race defines the future of SLO County,” Gibson said, “and folks know it.” Jones and Compton didn’t respond to requests for comment before press time. Other local races remained unchanged after the last count. Cano has a comfortable lead in the county clerk-recorder contest, taking 61.9 percent of the vote over two challengers, James Baugh and Stew Jenkins. Deputy District Attorney Mike Frye is beating attorney Paul Phillips for an open judge seat on the superior court with a lead of 66.8 percent to 33.2 percent. Oceano’s special fire tax, Measure A-22, is failing for the second time in as many elections, earning just 58.2 percent of the vote when it needed a two-thirds supermajority vote to pass. —Peter Johnson NEWS continued page 5

Congress passes first gun safety legislation in 30 years

Barely two days after the Supreme Court repealed a New York gun law that regulated who could carry concealed weapons in public, President Joe Biden signed a bipartisan gun safety package that deals with red flag laws. The package has some ties to the Central Coast, too, with U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) of the 24th District championing the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act worth $750 million. Carbajal’s bill, which received House approval earlier in June, is a grant program that aims to incentivize states to set up and administer red flag laws. Under those laws, family members or law enforcement could petition a court to block a person from acquiring firearms if it’s proven that they’re dangerous. “We absolutely have more work to do. But it’s a major step in saving lives [when it comes to] those that are a danger to others through mass shootings, and those that are a danger to themselves through suicide, despite the setback by the rightwing Supreme Court that is out of step with the American people,” Carbajal said. “They demonstrated that in their decision with New York. They took a century-old law and modified it on a whim.” The gun safety package called the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act also received support from the Senate, making it the first gun safety legislation Congress has passed in almost 30 years. The $750 million fund set aside for the red flag piece of that bill package is not only supposed to support the 19 states (California included) that have already implemented red flag laws, it’s also meant to encourage other states to adopt the gun safety measure. California’s red flag laws are known as gun violence restraining orders (GVROs). According to UC Davis’s Violence Prevention Research Program, GVROs stopped 58 potential mass shooters in the first three years of the state law going into effect on Jan. 1, 2016. Law enforcement officers filed 96.5 percent of the GVROs. The latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that California had the seventh lowest firearm death rate in the country in 2020. While Carbajal called his segment of the bills the “heart of the legislation,” the package includes other protective measures, too. Some of these include expanding mental health and support services in schools and closing the “boyfriend loophole,” which adds convicted domestic violence abusers in dating relationships to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The latter would prevent partners with proven violent behavior from purchasing guns. But Carbajal thinks other laws need to work in tandem for the package to be fully effective. “This is a major step forward but it’s not a panacea. It’s not going to solve all the gun violence that we want to reduce,” he said. “That’s why we need to continue to make sure we’re moving other laws forward as well, like reinstating the assault weapons ban that sunsetted years back, like banning high-capacity magazines.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

Judge allows League of Women Voters to join redistricting lawsuit

EMPLOYMENT

by Peter Johnson

The League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County officially got the green light to join the citizen-led lawsuit challenging SLO County’s new redistricting map, following a June 17 court ruling. SLO Superior Court Judge Rita Federman sided with the League and its recent motion to intervene in the case—concluding that the 60-year-old local nonprofit chapter had demonstrated a “direct and immediate interest” in the controversial map. “While the League’s general interest in upholding voting rights may not be a sufficient interest to permit intervention, … that some of its members’ rights to vote may be deferred or otherwise affected is a sufficiently specific interest that is directly affected by the outcome of the litigation,” Federman wrote in the ruling. League attorneys now have until July 1 to file a “petition in intervention” to join the proceedings. League President Cindy Marie Absey declared it “momentous” news in a June 23 press release. “This is the first time in our history we have taken legal action to support voting rights,” Absey said of the local chapter. Absey underscored how the League consistently registered opposition to the county’s new redistricting map— commonly referred to as the Patten Map—“due to its impacts on 98,000 of SLO County’s 217,000 eligible voters.” Many residents agreed; League membership nearly tripled last year amid the redistricting process, Absey said. “Clearly, the unfair redistricting process struck at the heart of our members’ passion. We simply could not stand by,” she said. The League will join SLO County Citizens for Good Government—the coalition that initially formed to sue the county—in challenging the map under the California Fair Maps Act.

Ron Turovsky, an attorney retained by the League for the litigation, noted in the press release that the case could serve as a “bellwether case of the Fair Maps Act.” Citizens for Good Government directors Jim Gardiner, Patricia Gomez, Linda Seifert, and Rick TerBorch called the ruling “a big deal” in a June 21 press release of their own. “The League’s unique perspective and experience should prove to be very helpful in arguing our case as forcefully as possible,” the group stated. The ongoing lawsuit is still in its discovery phase, according to Citizens for Good Government. The next case management conference is scheduled for July 29. Recent discussions have “centered on discovery that we believe may be necessary to determine if the record is complete.” “The wheels of justice sometimes seem to move maddeningly slowly,” the press release concluded, “but they are moving.” —Peter Johnson

Atascadero approves grocery store, mixeduse development on Del Rio

The empty lot in Atascadero that was once a Walmart battlefield could hold a grocery store and mixed-use residential and retail development in the near future. Although some neighbors expressed concerns about recent changes to the project and questioned the city’s transparency efforts, the City Council unanimously approved a conditional use permit for the project on June 28. Construction on the 11-acre lot will continue commercial build-out at the intersection of El Camino Real and Del Rio Road, which abuts residential areas to the north and east. Atascadero Mayor Heather Moreno and City Councilmember Susan Funk said they understood some of the frustrations that community members might have with the planning process, but added that the area in question is commercially zoned. “The project does change over time in response to those comments and concerns [from the public], and that can be frustrating because the answers change, but it is ultimately directed at having something that serves the community,” Funk said. “It’s hard if you’re living next to property which is zoned for commercial use—which happens a lot in Atascadero—and hasn’t yet been developed to its full capability. It’s hard to realize that, yeah, someday that’s going to happen.” NEWS continued page 6

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.

Yielding to Yellowstone A SLO native’s passion for the outdoors found him navigating a stormy yet silent Yellowstone National Park

S

an Luis Obispo-raised backpacker Cody Stapley’s love for the backcountry made sure he was sufficiently equipped when historic floods slammed Yellowstone National Park in mid-June. “I’m used to being in the woods and mountains for days at a time. I had all my gear. I was perfectly warm when the heaters went out and it was snowing. I was fine. They had food and stuff for us. But if they didn’t, I had a week’s supply of food on my own,” he said. Looking for a change of scene, 31-yearold Stapley left the homegrown comforts of SLO on May 25, stopped to hike the Sierra Nevada mountains in between, and finally reached the national park on June 2 to start working at the gift shop by Yellowstone Lake. A little more than a week into his new job, Stapley and his coworkers were living in a Yellowstone devoid of visitors, thanks to what officials are calling a “thousandyear event” that may have forever altered the park’s landscape. Following several days of rain from an atmospheric river—long and narrow corridors of water vapor—that floated over the Pacific Northwest, the snowmelt and ensuing runoff caused the Yellowstone River and its tributaries to overflow. The result: catastrophic floods that rocked areas like Gardiner and Cooke City, Montana, taking out roads, bridges, and houses along the way. On June 13, Yellowstone officials decided to evacuate any remaining visitors and close the 2.2 million-acre park. Stapley noticed that things were askew a day before the closure. Lack of cell service and internet made it tough to gauge the extent of the disaster. “I was the opening shift. Five to 10 minutes in, the phone rang. It was a lady who works up in Gardiner, Montana—one of the towns that got hit the hardest. It got hit real hard; they’re still struggling with stuff. She called us because she said no trucks and stuff were going to get to us [that day]. Then she told us that they had

no power, no water. At that point I was like, ‘Something’s going on,’” Stapley said. “Throughout the day, you heard rumors and you start hearing people coming in and saying they were getting evacuated from their hotel rooms. It was a snowball effect from there.” In a June 14 press conference, Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly detailed the damage and subsequent evacuation procedure. Severe damage, he said, occurred along the road corridor between Mammoth and Cooke City. Mammoth Hot Springs is one stopping point along Yellowstone’s northern loop, which also takes visitors to Roosevelt, Tower Fall, Canyon Village, and Norris. The 5-mile stretch of road between Mammoth Hot Springs and Gardiner was the most affected. “This is just one section. It’s not going to be an easy rebuild. The things we’re going to need to do to stabilize once the water comes down, assess what the full damage is along the length of that corridor. Also, with the right people, assess whether it makes sense to build here in the future,” Sholly said at the conference. Sholly added that once visitors were evacuated from the northern loop, park officials evaluated the damage to the southern loop, closer to where Stapley was. The damage there wasn’t as intense. Stapley told New Times that while it was storming for a few days, the area surrounding him didn’t flood. “Your first instinct is to have empathy and fear for the people up in Gardiner and Cooke City who were really locked in. It’s scary, you know. Next, you learn that everybody is leaving and you’re not. So, all of a sudden, this entire national park is empty, and it’s just wild,” he said. Stormy weather led to snowfall, and the temperature dipped to 28 degrees at one point. But Stapley found solace in his warm layers, and a sleeping quilt that could be comfortably used to zero degrees, among other equipment. He also made sure he had 15 liters of water on hand. “I don’t regularly carry that much. I

EMPTY AND WILD One week into his time working at Yellowstone National Park, San Luis Obispo-native Cody Stapley experienced a rare occurrence—a national park devoid of visitors due to the catastrophic floods that closed it.

just brought all my backpacking gear and between reservoirs, a gravity filtration system, a filter bottle, and a few reusable Nalgene water bottles,” Stapley said, “I have a 15-liter capacity, and I filled all of them and kept them in my room in case something happened to our water because water up north was affected. Nothing happened to our water.” Stapley and his coworkers continued living in the dorm rooms meant for employees. The park’s kitchen staff served them food, and they were even allowed to leave once it was determined safe to do so. So Stapley left to try and climb Cloud Peak, the highest mountain in Wyoming’s Bighorn National Forest. But a lightning storm made him return within a day, and he found himself back at Yellowstone. Although he wasn’t allowed to hit as many trails as he wanted, an evacuated Yellowstone still left Stapley marveling. According to National Park Service statistics, Yellowstone welcomed roughly 4.8 million visitors in 2021. Stapley added that officials were expecting 5.5 million travelers in 2022. The floods ensured visitors were kept out altogether. The southern loop reopened on June 22, and the usual 50 to 100 people Stapley’s gift shop catered to every hour winnowed to roughly 20. With that reopening also came traffic control measures. “Peak season hasn’t happened yet. Yellowstone is doing a new entrance program called the ALPS program—the alternate license plate system. On an

even day of the week, if you don’t have reservations, you can only get into the park if the last number of your license plate is even. They’re cutting down traffic on purpose because half the park is closed,” he said. But Stapley doesn’t mind the relative quiet. A longtime nature lover, he found peaceful solitude in Yellowstone once the storm settled. “A big part of me was pretty thankful for the experience because it’s a really unreal scenario to be in. To be in a popular national park with nobody there. There’s a silence that I didn’t know existed. I feel very deeply for the outside, for mountains and forests,” he said. “It was cool to see nature blossoming without humans around, there were no fumes from cars in the air. You could see the Tetons from here, which is a rare occurrence. A big part of that time was just appreciating that the Native Americans who were here first and the people who took it away from them—the ones that established Yellowstone—were the only ones who saw [it] in the wild. It wasn’t exactly like that because there still are cars and power, and all that. It was a throwback to what a national park used to be. I’m glad that people are back,” he added. “But it was a neat experience for somebody who connects with nature on an empathetic level.” ∆ Reach Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal at brajagopal@newtimesslo.com.

Candid camera Paso Robles high school and junior high school campuses are getting surveillance systems and vape sensors this summer

C

ameras are nothing new at Paso Robles High School. They’ve been recording Bearcat faces for a little more than 15 years, but an incident in January highlighted the system’s need for an upgrade, according to Curt Dubost, Paso Robles Joint Unified School District’s superintendent. On Jan. 8, a student was rushing to class in a hooded sweatshirt, wearing a mask, and holding an umbrella. But another student mistakenly thought it was a long rifle and reported it. Dubost said the district went through its security protocols. It coordinated with the Paso Robles Police Department, locked down the campus, and started trying to zero in on the student. “We kept checking our cameras, and some of them were working and some of them weren’t,” Dubost said. “In retrospect, I’m glad it happened because it highlighted improving our cameras.” During a special meeting on June 7, the district school board voted to approve a $300,000 contract to install surveillance cameras and vape sensors at Paso High and the two middle school campuses— Flamson Middle School and Lewis Middle School. The systems will get installed over the summer, Dubost said, while students aren’t on campus. Those cameras will include facial recognition and license-plate reading technology as well as have the ability to coordinate with the brand new vape sensors in school restrooms to catch students as they come out the bathroom doors. Dubost said if the school had a newer surveillance system, administrators would have been better-equipped to identify the Paso High students who stole a pride flag from a classroom earlier this year, defecated on it, and then posted the incident on social media. “If we had better cameras, we would be better able to identify who was where, and who was where they shouldn’t be,” he said. He indicated that recent incidents

at Lewis Middle School show that it’s time for the district to put cameras on junior high campuses, which haven’t had surveillance cameras before. At the end of the 2021-22 school year, three separate events over a short period resulted in police action, Dubost said. On June 2, two former students allegedly graffitied and attempted to set fire to several areas of Lewis’s campus. They were successful in setting one fire in a special education classroom and caused $100,000 in damage. The students were caught and arrested in connection with felony arson charges. On June 3, Dubost said, a student brought some toy weapons to school, including military-type equipment, a fake grenade, and a knife, “ostensibly to be used off-campus.” And on June 5, as a prank, a student posted a weapon online and indicated that it would be used oncampus the next day. “It was a pretty wild three days, and, of course, everything going on with the national news at the same time,” Dubost said, alluding to the May 24 school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. “I remember being in junior high and being stupid, but you would think that people would realize that this just isn’t funny.” District Student Services Director Tom Harrington said Paso’s middle schools are starting to see some issues that in the past were associated with high school students—shenanigans, harassment, and unsafe activities. “It seems like the pandemic has caused a lot of stress for our students. Some of that time where they would have been socializing with their peers and their teachers, they didn’t,” Harrington said, adding that schools all over the nation are experiencing the impacts. “We are seeing the percentage of students that do exhibit poor behavior, that number is increasing. And that’s sad.” For instance, Harrington said, as students returned to campus after the COVID-19 pandemic, “we discovered

Bodily autonomy The left and right only have righteous anger about government intrusion when it aligns with their cause

W

While many on the left rage against the right for challenging and finally overturning that federal decision, they should understand that the left has also been busy digging a grave for the privacy precedent. A case in point is the far-left California Legislature, which is right now pushing bills to weaken that right to medical privacy by creating vaccine registries and mandatory vaccine reporting, and by writing laws to censor and criminalize what a doctor says in private to their patient if it goes against the leftist narrative. How is it that those people shouting

hile the ideological divide between right and left seems as deep as the ocean and just as hard to bridge, in terms of personal health care, we all seem to want the same thing. We want respect for our decisions; we want government to stay out of our affairs; and we want to be treated as adults with bodily sovereignty. The divide emerges only when we claim these rights for ourselves while denying them for others. And whether you’re on the right or the left, don’t kid yourself, your side is also to blame. Bodily autonomy and freedom of choice were bedrocks of my old alliance to the left. As a college freshman, I marched on Washington, D.C., for a NOW rally with a bus load of students chanting “my body, my choice.” I had an abortion at 19 and am grateful for the ease of care I received, which was seamless and without regret.

We also stand firm with those on the right who decry the recent obliteration of fundamental human rights enjoyed by generations of Americans for more than a hundred years. These rights include the right to work and support one’s family free from government intrusion into private health care decisions, as

well the right of equal access to public services and institutions without sharing confidential medical information. Now imagine if those on the left and right could bridge this divide by supporting bodily sovereignty in all its forms. Not just part time and in some instances, but almost always, for all. It may be uncomfortable to affirm the bodily sovereignty of others when we ourselves would make different choices, but it is essential if we are to continue as free people in a free society. Just as the old adage goes, “united we stand, divided we fall.” United we oust politicians on the right and left who seek to divide us into those with rights and those without. United we stop the assault on fundamental freedoms barreling down on us from both the right and the left. United we are unstoppable. United we win. ∆ Nicole Dorfman writes from Morro Bay.

Letters A strategy to control

The right to abortion was never enshrined into law in this country, and that’s the problem. The ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment by the reluctant southern states could have made Roe v. Wade more difficult to overturn, but the fact remains that a Supreme Court determined to place their boots on American women’s necks had LETTERS continued page 13


Opinion LETTERS from page 12

plenty of power to do it because of the lack of laws on abortion rights. Justice Samuel Alito, ridiculously but correctly, said the right to abortion was not mentioned in the Constitution, and this further points to the danger of placing so much weight upon an 18th century paper, where women were not mentioned at all. In Western Europe, all of the countries but Germany have laws that protect abortion rights. Germany, the exception, allows abortion on demand up to the end of the first trimester but does not regulate it. In all other Western European countries, abortion is completely open until the 12th or 14th week, then more strictly medically controlled. You won’t be surprised to hear that Sweden was the first country to pass a law lifting some of the restrictions on abortion as early as 1938. Since then, they loosened the law more and more until they left the decision entirely up to the individual woman in 1974. This was a crucial time when most Western European countries decided to lift the burden of unwanted pregnancy off their women: Denmark, 1973; Austria, 1975; France, 1975; Netherland, 1975; Italy, 1978; Spain, 1985; etc. Most of these countries cover the cost of abortion through their health care systems. Ironically, England, cited as an example by Alito for some arcane 18th century point of view, made abortion legal as early as 1967. I grew up in France, where a right once given cannot be taken away (There would be a revolution!), so I was confident that nothing could ever happen to Roe v. Wade. Like other women, I saw the clouds gather, but I did not take them seriously enough. Yet I knew that the United States was the only developed country that did not sign the U.N. Convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women, and did not sign the U.N. Convention to protect the rights of children. The embryos that appear to be so important to our justices are conveniently forgotten as soon as they become children, and are too often left to face poverty and guns on their own because they have no rights here. In conclusion, if we can’t for the moment get rid of the violation and abuse that the Supreme Court and backward states decided to impose upon American women, let us at least remove the hypocrisy surrounding their decision, and call it for what it is: a stratagem to control women, especially the poor, the uneducated, and the minorities.

Letters This Week’s Online Poll VOTE AT WWW.NEWTIMESSLO.COM

Do you think big local events need better security, like anti-vehicle barriers at the SLO Farmers Market? 46% The risk is low, but some level of security makes sense. 28% Yes, you can never be too safe these days. 13% No, that’s a poor use of public money. 13% I’m more worried about attacks that don’t involve vehicles. 56 Votes

granddaughters, and nieces have less rights than I had at child-bearing age. Here are the percentages of birth control failing: cervical cap, 12 percent; condom, 18 percent; diaphragm, 12 percent; oral contraception, 9 percent; and vaginal ring, 9 percent. Birth control fails even for those who have access. There is nothing pleasant about an abortion. It is a woman’s last resort when a mother’s life is in danger, birth control fails, in cases of incest, when there’s no access to birth control, and when a woman is raped. This comes as the Supreme Court expands the right of individuals to carry a gun outside the home. It is easy to draw a gun in anger and kill another human being, such as a spouse/girlfriend and/or go into a grocery store, school, or theater to take out rage. Women, use your power at the voting booth in the midterms, in school boards, local, and national elections. We need to march for our rights and safety, contact Congress, and donate to organizations that will help women with their last resort. Lee Perkins Atascadero

Let’s reform the Supreme Court

Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that we have to have nine Supreme Court justices. Nor would it require a Constitutional amendment to add more seats. In fact, Congress has expanded the Supreme Court five times throughout American history. Congress should use its constitutional authority to rebalance the Supreme Court, which has been taken over by a supermajority that holds extreme views outside of the mainstream of legal thought and out of step with most Americans. That’s why Congress must pass the Judiciary Act, which would add four seats to the Supreme Court and help stem the rightwing supermajority’s attacks on our fundamental freedoms, including the right to access abortion care. There’s nothing stopping Congress from adding justices—except for the political will to do it, of course. In fact, recent polling showed that the majority of American voters support expanding the court. That’s why I’m urging Congress to pass the Judiciary Act of 2021 and add four seats to the Supreme Court. Alicia Morin Atascadero

The Shredder

Keeping up with the Joneses

T

hese must be the End Times. I just saw that Paso Robles made it onto InfoWars, which Wikipedia describes as a “far-right conspiracy theory and fake news website owned by Alex Jones.” The website has claimed 9/11 was a false flag operation, the government staged the 2016 Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, the 2012 Sandy Hook mass shooting never happened, the U.S. Air Force is creating tornadoes in the Midwest, the FBI was behind the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Barack Obama is the global head of Al Qaeda, and the U.S. government uses juice boxes to make children gay. You can’t make this stuff up, but apparently Alex Jones can! InfoWars reposted a tweet by RNC Research that included a KSBY news report about vandalism at the Tree of Life Pregnancy Support Center in Paso Robles to show how dreadful and violent pro-abortion extremists are, and I’m shocked to admit I sort of agree. The group thought responsible for the Paso vandalism is Jane’s Revenge, a militant extremist pro-abortion rights group that formed in May 2022 after the draft of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked. On June 24, the landmark 1973 decision that gave women a constitutional right to access abortion was officially deemed unconstitutional. Pro-life 1; women’s rights 0.

End Times indeed, but back to Jane’s Revenge. First, if you identify as “pro-abortion,” your group has a branding problem. No one in their right mind is proabortion. How about pro-bodily-autonomy? And hey, Jane’s Revenge, if you want to protect women’s rights, there are better ways than destruction of private property. How about cruise over to Planned Parenthood and act as counterprotesters to those people harassing women trying to access reproductive health care? When the left engages in violence, it undercuts our tenuous moral advantage in the reproductive rights debate. The far-right and anti-abortion fanatics are well known for enacting violence against abortion providers. Pro-life extremists have shot and murdered doctors, bombed and burned clinics, and essentially revealed the hypocrisy of their “pro-life” lie. Don’t fall into that trap. If pro-lifers were really pro-life, they’d advocate for free birth control and comprehensive sex education. They’d support paid parental leave, free child care, and universal health care. They’d back welfare and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Heck, maybe they’d even be anti-death-penalty and anti-war.

14 • New Times • June 30 - July 7, 2022 • www.newtimesslo.com

The truth is pro-life equates to probirth and anti-women’s rights. Nobody in their right mind wants any woman to have to resort to abortion, but no one in their right mind should want the government to have the power to force an unwilling woman to carry a child she doesn’t want to term. By vandalizing Tree of Life, which—among other things— offers pregnancy tests and ultrasounds and gives out baby and maternity clothes, you have set back women’s rights and made liberals look like thugs. Now I feel obligated to point out people like Maria ForThe Repub on Facebook, who recently linked to a General Dispatch story called “Gutfeld: Guns are in the Constitution, abortion is not,” which tells you all you need to know about the right-wing mindset that believes the unfettered right to guns is more important than the rights of children to go to school without fear of being gunned down in their own classrooms. According to bible-thumping Maria, this shit is God’s will. She’s also wary of cheating in local elections: “We need more conservatives involved as poll workers at the voting centers in San Luis Obispo County on Election Day, Tuesday, June 7. Conservative eagle-eyes are needed to keep an eye out for any cheating! Can you help?” she asked on June 2. As County Clerk-Recorder Elaina Cano continues to diligently and carefully tally the vote, local conservatives continue to cry foul even as early Democratic candidates’ leads have eroded. District 2 incumbent Bruce Gibson has seen his

lead drop, tallying less than 50 percent of votes, meaning he’ll be facing one of his primary challengers in November. Currently, that’s looking like Bruce Jones. Yes! A battle of the Bruces! Jones currently has less than 19 percent, but if you add Gibson’s other challengers into the mix, that’s a 52 percent no vote toward Gibson. Jones has already set his sights on November. On his Jones for Supervisor website, he has an info box connected to a radio ad called “The Worst Bruce—Bruce Gibson.” The ad says, “Why is Bruce Gibson the worst Bruce for Board of Supervisors District 2? Gibson may live in District 2, but his values are way too progressive. He’s soft on crime, parental rights, clean and abundant energy, and homelessness.” How did “progressive” become a pejorative? And really, Gibson—a huge advocate to solve the impossible-tosolve homeless problem—is “soft” on homelessness? What do you have in mind, Jones? I bet it’s not giving them all a free place to live. And “soft on parental rights”? “He supports children 12 and older taking COVID vaccines without parental consent,” the ad continues. Are you kidding me? You think parents should be able to deny their children access to a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19? Maybe Bruce Jones and Alex Jones can collaborate on a new conspiracy. And maybe you fence-sitters should think about exercising your right to vote. What’s the next right you’re going to lose? ∆ The Shredder is pro-choice.

n local digital marketing guru Kevin Carr’s new book, The Musician’s Guide to Digital Marketing, he begins with a contemporary myth: “Fate was written in the stars for the yearning YouTuber. Her life abruptly changed after a viral video, which led to placement on a prominent Spotify playlist, which led to a meeting with a record executive. She was an overnight sensation with millions of fans and followers. Royalty checks flowed like the salmon of Capistrano … .” It sounds like a dream come true for every yearning musician, but as Carr wrote in his book, “If you believe in these fairy tales— occasionally referred to as the ‘American Idol fantasy’—then this book is not for you. Drop the power chords and play the Powerball instead, because winning the lotto is more likely.” Carr’s book isn’t for the dreamers. It’s for the DIYers, and what it contains is practical, actionable digital marketing strategies to help performers create a brand, a logo, and an electronic press kit (EPK), as well as to consider search engine optimization (SEO), create memorable artist photos, and develop an effective website. The book—available at amazon.com and the basis for an upcoming Cuesta College Community Programs class in the fall called Digital Marketing for Musicians—clearly and succinctly shows performers how to rule the interwebs. But why digital only and no hard copies? “I thought this would be more appropriate for a book on digital marketing,” Carr said via email. “It also allows me to keep it relatively updated every year or so, which I will plan to do.” Carr knows how difficult it is for bands to gain a foothold online. He’s a musician himself. He self-deprecatingly describes himself as a “lousy drummer,” mainly because his uncle is master drummer Steve Hilstein, former owner of SLO’s The Drum Circuit and current owner of Music Motive. “My primary instrument is guitar, actually, but everyone plays guitar,” Carr joked. “I thought drums might read a little more interesting. At Musicians Institute of Hollywood, I completed the Music Business program back in 2005 while the music business was knee-deep in the aftermath of Napster and file sharing. Fascinating time to be there, to say the least. The internships that came from that program were the most useful: a record label and an artist management agency. These opportunities revealed to me the inner workings of the traditional music biz, which of course was ripe for disruption.” Carr became interested in the business

EMPLOYMENT

ARTS WRITER Join Our Team! 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. Can you find it? Let us know if you’ve got what it takes. We dare you. Send résumé and clips to Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com. New Times is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

o-writer/director Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, Australia, The Great Gatsby) directs this biopic about famed rockstar Elvis Presley (Austin Butler) and his complicated relationships with manager Col. Tom Parker (Tom Hanks) and wife Priscilla (Olivia DeJonge). (159 min.)

Glen Luhrmann is a dazzling director with an eye for spectacle, and he creates a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds that is absolutely mesmerizing. The story begins in 1997 with Col. Parker on his deathbed looking back on his time with Elvis. We meet a young Elvis (Chaydon Jay) growing up in poverty with his parents Vernon (Richard Roxburgh) and Gladys (Helen Thomson), and we see how he’s inspired by Black music—both the lurid juke joint style and the spirit-filled gospel of roadside tent revivals. It’s a stirring precursor to this story about a sideshow conman who strikes gold discovering an ahead-of-his-time country bumpkin with a golden voice and a preternatural understanding of how to sell a song. Butler is positively magnetic in the role of Elvis and shares the performer’s youthful looks and swagger. The music is, of course, fantastic, and I love how Elvis’s music melds into a hip-hop soundtrack. Many believe Elvis exploited Black music akin to cultural appropriation, but as this story tells it, Elvis was steeped in Black music traditions and was part of its scene. He changed popular music as we know it. This is amazingly entertaining. Anna Wowza, Luhrmann once again delivers a fantastical world on the big screen; this is just a total treat for the senses. While the storyline does stick with a lot of truths, Luhrmann takes artistic liberties with the way it winds together. Perhaps the villains are more villainous than they actually were and the saints more saintly, maybe Elvis’s most peculiar traits and actions are ignored, but nonetheless we get a wonderful story—a wonderful tragedy. I give total props to Butler. This young actor has been on the small and big

Bay, Downtown Centre, Fair Oaks, Park, Stadium 10 screen since he was a kid, but this role is going to launch him into a whole new level of roles. Luhrmann made the choice to use Butler’s singing voice for the early years portrayed in the film and then blend his voice with Elvis’s as the character got older, to match it with the real Elvis’s voice in the years preceding his death at 42. This technique was a wonderful decision—I believed this character in the film and the voice we all know so well as one in the same. Glen True, the broad strokes of the story are accurate, but don’t go in thinking you’re watching reality. This is a glossy, sparkling version of the tragic story. Elvis’s talent supported his mother and father, his wife and child, his hangers on—the so-called Memphis Mafia—and apparently Col. Parker’s insatiable gambling addiction. He had a huge weight on his back to keep the moolah rolling in. The film’s central haunting questions are whether Elvis would be

the superstar he became without Parker, and whether Parker’s manipulation and control over Elvis’s career ultimately hurt or helped him. His drug use and untimely death made Elvis a legend, but his music and songs such as “Unchained Melody,” “Suspicious Minds,” and “In the Ghetto” made him an indelible pop music icon. I’m thoroughly wowed by both Elvis’s talent and this highly entertaining and emotionally resonant film. Anna He wasn’t just a voice. There was so much talent and a real sense of collaboration that made him the amazing star, showman, and musician that he was. The devil seems to catch up with mega talents, especially those who have substance abuse problems, and Elvis was no exception. I do appreciate that while we did see his decline and how his addictions and lifestyle changed the man himself, it wasn’t the film’s focus and didn’t take up a lot of time. Despite its nearly 3-hour runtime, the film goes by in a flash, mainly focusing on how Elvis the man became Elvis: The King of Rock and Roll.

rroyo Grande singer-songwriter Susan Ritchie’s new EP, How Many Miles?, is six desperate love-songslong, 23 minutes of intense emotional turmoil, and absolutely essential listening for fans of soulful blues rock. As Ritchie describes it, it’s “a melding of soul and blues mixed with some rock and Americana—think Hall & Oats meets TedeschiTrucks, sprinkled with some Bonnie Raitt and Eric Clapton, with a dusting of Van Morrison.” It kicks off with “Let This Be Real,” a soulful and sexy love song with great guitar work and horn fills. “You got me down on my knees,” Ritchie sings with all the double entendre she can muster. “Please let this be real. All the sweet things you whisper in my ears. Oh, let them be true, not only words I want to hear. You got me down on my knees. Please let this be real.” On “Not Too Late,” she’s trying to repair a broken love: “Once again, babe, I think you’re right. Silence might be the best policy tonight.” Then she goes on to sing about “apologizing profusely in bed.” Hubba-hubba. “Meet Me in the Middle” is about the compromises necessary to make love work: “If you meet me in the middle, baby. If we both try just a little. A little give and take, quid pro quo, a little push and pull, the next thing you know we’ll be dancing close and slow.” The EP’s title track, “How Many Miles?,” is a song about learning to forgive: “The time has come, the time to forgive. Time to recognize turning on a dime that’s no way to live. Trespasses between us were many and looking back in hindsight to see 20/20.” Ritchie has a gift for lyrics, and her voice is soulful in the same way Susan Tedeschi’s and Bonnie Raitt’s voices are— soaring yet down to earth. The Americana track “That Ain’t Love” is about being blinded by love and not seeing the truth of a damaged relationship, and the EP closer, “Cloudy Day,” is a bluesy slow burning ballad about a cheating partner. “I used to be your Bonnie and you were my Clyde. We picked up trouble and took trouble for a ride. I guess you’re not one for settling down. You’re just an old fool chasing skirts all over town.” As Ma Rainey said, “They hear it come out, but they don’t know how it got there. They don’t understand that’s life’s way of talking. You don’t sing it to feel better. You sing ’cause that’s a way of understanding life.” On How Many Miles?, Ritchie has painted love in all its incarnations.

inemaker Aaron Jackson is a force of nature, reaping the benefits of Central Coast soil, surf, and scenery for both business and pleasure. It’s hard to distinguish between the two, because after 20 years in the industry, crafting an exceptional wine still brings him as much joy as catching the perfect wave or backpacking to a remote waterfall in Big Sur. Jackson’s two distinct brands— produced at his winery and tasting facility in Paso Robles’ Tin City and sourced from vineyards throughout San Luis Obispo County—include Aaron Wines and Aequorea. “When I set out on my path to be a winemaker, I was just a young, brighteyed kid from Cayucos who loved where I grew up and wanted to do something that challenged me and allowed me to never get bored or stagnant,” he said. “Here I am 20 years later, and I still truly love what I do. I get thrilled during harvest to make the best wines we can, and Mother Nature ensures that you’ll never have the same vintage twice, so each year always brings about its own challenges and keeps you on your toes.” Jackson’s dedication to his craft—and to the entire Central Coast region—has, in turn, elicited praise and respect from colleagues. “I met Aaron when he was damn near a teenager throwing wine barrels and surfing all the time,” said winemaker Mike Sinor of Sinor-LaVallee in Avila Beach. “You could just tell he had that DNA that the top winemakers have. “As he has matured, it has not stopped a bit. He was the tip of the spear on the SLO Coast AVA and really

showed leadership that will be felt for generations.” The federal American Viticultural Area designation, finalized in March, establishes the SLO Coast as an official wine region. The 408,585-acre AVA stretches 60 miles from San Simeon to Nipomo and includes the Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande sub-AVAs. In addition to Jackson and Sinor, the AVA team included Brian Talley of Talley Vineyards in Arroyo Grande, Maria Bennetti of Stolo Vineyards in Cambria, June McIvor of SLO’s Tolosa, and Steve Vierra of Paso’s Derby Wine Estates. Talley said he “was immediately impressed with [Jackson’s] knowledge of our region, especially the geology and soils, but even more by his commitment to seeing the process through.” “Since that time,” Talley added, “I’ve

started selling pinot noir grapes to Aaron for his Aequorea brand. He’s a passionate and committed winemaker, and that’s reflected in both his wines and the way he led the effort to get approval for the new AVA.” Jackson said his winemaking journey began in high school “when I got a summer job working in a vineyard, and the bug stuck.” He produced the first vintage of his flagship petite sirah under the Aaron Wines label in 2002 at the age of 19, then went on to secure a bachelor’s degree in wine and viticulture from Cal Poly, followed by a master’s degree in oenology from the University of Adelaide in South Australia.

In 2012, he launched his second label, Aequorea, Latin for “of the sea.” While Aaron Wines showcases powerful petite sirah-centric grapes grown in the limestone soils and rugged hillsides of westside Paso Robles, the Aequorea brand produces single-vineyard pinot noir and aromatic whites—such as viognier and pinot gris—from cool, coastal vineyards within 6 miles of the ocean. All are available for tasting at Jackson’s Tin City facility, the building itself being another of his passion projects, reflecting his heritage and devotion to his favorite playground, the Pacific. “I grew up surfing and being in the ocean,” Jackson explained. “My mother is Hawaiian, born and raised on Oahu, but moved to Cayucos in 1973 with my dad. “My Hawaiian heritage and the ocean in general have always been a big part of my life, and so I always pay homage to it, no matter what.” Additionally, “I’m obsessed with everything having a story,” he said, not FLAVOR continued page 30

Street Address or other common designation of real property: 759 Viola Court, Nipomo, CA 93444 A.P.N.: 092-137-008 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $ 457,376.26. Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the total debt. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid

LEGAL NOTICES to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary of the Deed of Trust has executed and delivered to the undersigned a written request to commence foreclosure, and the undersigned caused a Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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 this 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 (866)-960-8299 or visit this Internet Web site https://www. altisource.com/loginpage.aspx using the file number assigned to this case 2016-01804-CA. 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 Web site. 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, if conducted after January 1, 2021, 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 (866)-960-8299, or visit this internet website https://www. altisource.com/loginpage.aspx, using the file number assigned to this case 2016-01804-CA 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, by remitting the funds and affidavit described in Section 2924m(c) of the Civil Code, 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.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING COUNTY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the County of San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors (Board of Supervisors) will hold a public hearing to consider adopting a resolution adopting the updated Paso Robles Subbasin Groundwater Sustainability Plan (Updated GSP) and finding that the project is exempt from Section 21000 et seq. of the California Public Resources Code (CEQA) pursuant to Water Code Section 10728.6. Background In 2017, the Board of Supervisors formed the Paso Basin – County of San Luis Obispo Groundwater Sustainability Agency (County GSA) to comply with the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). The City of Paso Robles, the Shandon-San Juan Water District, and San Miguel Community Services District also formed groundwater sustainability agencies (GSAs) within their jurisdiction. The agencies (together, Paso Basin GSAs), whose service areas collectively cover the entire Paso Basin, entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), establishing the Paso Basin Cooperative Committee (Committee) for the purpose of developing a single groundwater sustainability plan (GSP) to be considered for adoption by each Paso Basin GSA and subsequently submitted to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) by the SGMA deadline of January 31, 2020 and for the purpose of continued coordination during the period of GSP adoption and DWR approval. Under the framework of the MOA, the Paso Basin GSAs engaged the public and coordinated to jointly develop the GSP which was recommended by the Committee for adoption by each of the Paso Basin GSAs. The Board of Supervisors held a public hearing and adopted Resolution 2019-357 adopting the GSP on December 17, 2019 and authorized the County Director of Public Works, or designee, as the Plan Manager to submit the GSP to DWR. The GSP was submitted to DWR on January 30, 2020. On January 21, 2022, DWR announced that the GSP had received an incomplete determination under the provisions of SGMA and the Final GSP Emergency Regulations. The determination started a 180-day window to address DWR’s comments. DWR found two areas of deficiency in the GSP: (1) the GSP did not include an adequate assessment of potential impacts to domestic wells associated with chronic lowering of groundwater levels, and (2) the GSP did not include an adequate assessment of the potential for depletion of interconnected surface waters. The Paso Basin GSAs initiated communications with DWR staff immediately after receipt of the initial notification and retained the services of a consultant to provide technical assistance in addressing the deficiencies. The work in addressing the deficiencies was completed and the GSP has been updated. The Committee recommended the Updated GSP for adoption by each of the Paso Basin GSAs at its April 27, 2022 meeting consistent with the terms of the MOA, and the Updated GSP sections were made available at the following link: https://www.slocounty.ca.gov/Departments/ P u b l i c - Wo r k s / C o m m i t t e e s - P r o g r a m s / S u s t a i n a b l e Groundwater-Management-Act-(SGMA)/Paso-RoblesGroundwater-Basin/Meeting-Calendar/2022/Paso-BasinCooperative-Committee-(3).aspx Should the Board of Supervisors decide to adopt the resolution, such action would allow the County to submit the Updated GSP and continue coordinating with the Paso Basin GSAs on GSP implementation, maintaining compliance with SGMA requirements.

The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category, located at 1200 Arbor Road, 1 mile west of the City Paso Robles. The project site is in the Salinas River Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. This project is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. It can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that this project may have a significant effect on the environment; therefore, the activity is not subject to CEQA.

The NTMAs will be held Friday, Nov. 4, 2022 @ SLO Brew Rock

(March 21-April 19): In her poem “Two Skins,” Bahamanian writer Lynn Sweeting writes, “There is a moment in every snake’s life when she wears two skins: one you can see, about to be shed, one you cannot see, the skin under the skin, waiting.” I suspect you now have metaphorical resemblances to a snake on the verge of molting, Aries. Congratulations on your imminent rebirth! Here’s a tip: The snake’s old skin doesn’t always just fall away; she may need to take aggressive action to tear it open and strip it off, like by rubbing her head against a rock. Be ready to perform a comparable task.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Imagine a world 300 years from now,” writes Japanese novelist Minae Mizumura, “a world in which not only the best-educated people but also the brightest minds and the deepest souls express themselves only in English. Imagine the world subjected to the tyranny of a singular ‘Logos.’ What a narrow, pitiful, and horrid world that would be!” Even though I am primarily an English speaker, I agree with her. I don’t want a world purged of diversity. Don’t want a monolithic culture. Don’t want everyone to think and speak the same. I hope you share my passion for multiplicity, Taurus—especially these days. In my astrological opinion, you’ll thrive if you immerse yourself in a celebratory riot of variety. I hope you will seek out influences you’re not usually exposed to.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Imagine you’re not a person, but a medley of four magical ingredients. What would they be? A Gemini baker named Jasmine says, “ripe persimmons, green hills after a rain, a sparkling new Viking Black Glass Oven, and a prize-winning show horse.” A Gemini social worker named Amarantha says she would be made of “Florence and the Machine’s song ‘Sky Full of Song,’ a grove of birch trees, a blue cashmere knee-length sweater, and three black cats sleeping in the sun.” A Gemini delivery driver named Altoona says, “freshly harvested cannabis buds, a bird-loving wetlands at twilight, Rebecca Solnit’s book Hope in the Darkness, and the Haleakalā shield volcano in Maui.” And now, Gemini, what about you? Identify your medley of four magical ingredients. The time is right to re-imagine the poetry of you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard believes there’s only one way to find a sense of meaning, and that is to fill your life to the bursting point; to be in love with your experience; to celebrate the flow of events wherever it takes you. When you do that, Godard says, you have no need or urge to ask questions like “Why am I here?” or “What is my purpose?” The richness of your story is the ultimate response to every enigma. As I contemplate these ideas, I say: wow! That’s an intensely vibrant way to live. Personally, I’m not able to sustain it all the time. But I think most of us would benefit from such an approach for brief periods now and then. And I believe you have just entered one of those phases.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I asked Leo readers to provide their insights about the topic “How to Be a Leo.” Here are responses that line up with your current astrological omens. 1. People should try to understand you’re only bossing them around for their benefit. —Harlow Hunt. 2. Be alert for the intense shadows you may cast with your intense brightness. Consider the possibility that even if they seem iffy or dicey, they have value and even blessings to offer. —Cannarius Kansen. 3. Never break your own heart. Never apologize for showering yourself with kindness and adoration. —Amy Clear. 4. At the moment of orgasm, scream out your own name. —Bethany Grace

VIRGO

NewTimesSLO.com

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s your birthright as a Virgo to become a master of capitalizing on difficulties. You have great potential to detect opportunities coalescing in the midst of trouble. You can develop a knack for spotting the order that’s hiding in the chaos. Now is a time when you should wield these skills

with artistry, my dear—both for your own benefit and for the betterment of everyone whose lives you touch.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): One of my heroes died in 2021: the magnificent Libran author bell hooks (who didn’t capitalize her name). She was the most imaginative and independentminded activist I knew. Till her last day, she articulated one-of-a-kind truths about social justice; she maintained her uncompromising originality. But it wasn’t easy. She wrote, “No insurgent intellectual, no dissenting critical voice in this society escapes the pressure to conform. We are all vulnerable. We can all be had, co-opted, bought. There is no special grace that rescues any of us. There is only a constant struggle.” I bring this to your attention, Libra, because I suspect the coming weeks will require your strenuous efforts to remain true to your high standards and unique vision of reality.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You now have the power to make yourself even more beautiful than you already are. You are extraordinarily open to beautifying influences, and there will be an abundance of beautifying influences coming your way. I trust you understand I’m not referring to the kinds of beauty that are worshiped by conventional wisdom. Rather, I mean the elegance, allure, charm, and grace that you behold in old trees and gorgeous architecture and enchanting music and people with soulful idiosyncrasies. PS: The coming weeks will also be a favorable time to redefine the meaning of beauty for yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s the Season for Expressing Your Love— and for expanding and deepening the ways you express your love. I invite you to speak the following quotes to the right person: 1. “Your head is a living forest full of songbirds.” —E. E. Cummings. 2. “Lovers continuously reach each other’s boundaries.” —Rainer Maria Rilke, 3. “You’re my favorite unfolding story.” —Ann Patchett. 4. “My lifetime listens to yours.” —Muriel Rukeyser.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the coming weeks, make sure you do NOT fit this description articulated by Capricorn novelist Haruki Murakami: “You’re seeking something, but at the same time, you are running away for all you’re worth.” If there is any goal about which you feel conflicted like that, dear Capricorn, now is a good time to clear away your confusion. If you are in some sense undercutting yourself, perhaps unconsciously, now is the time to expose your inner saboteur and seek the necessary healing. July will be SelfUnification Month.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A Tweeter named Luxuryblkwomen articulates one of her ongoing goals: “bridging the gap between me and my ideal self, one day at a time.” I’d love it if you would adopt a similar aspiration in the coming months. You’re going to be exceptionally skilled at all types of bridge-building, including the kind that connects you to the hero you’ll be in the future. I mean, you are already a hero in my eyes, but I know you will ultimately become an even more fulfilled and refined version of your best self. Now is a favorable time to do the holy work of forging stronger links to that star-to-be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A blogger named Lissar suggests that the cherry blossom is an apt symbol for you Pisceans. She describes you as “transient, lissome, blooming, lovely, fragile yet memorable and recurring, in tune with nature.” Lissar says you “mystify yet charm,” and that your “presence is a balm, yet awe-inspiring and moving.” Of course, like all of us, you also have your share of less graceful qualities. And that’s not a bad thing! We’re all here to learn the art of growing into our ripe selves. It’s part of the fun of being alive. But I suspect that in the coming weeks, you will be an extra close match for Lissar’s description. You are at the peak of your power to delight and beguile us. ∆
