Paso parents and school board push to discuss LGBTQ policy

T

FILE PHOTO BY MALEA MARTIN

he culture war continues in one North County school district, and gender is the latest front. An agenda request discussed at the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District’s June 28 meeting dealt with several “culture war topics,” according to board president Chris Arend. He said that while the district wouldn’t be addressing several of them, such as taking a stance on COVID-19 vaccines, it would be reviewing its policies related to gender and sexuality at the Aug. 9 meeting. “We’re not out of the battlefield yet, as you will see,” Arend said on June 28. “The one area where we had a lot, about half a dozen agenda requests, all had to do with LGBT—uh, I can’t get the whole sequence of letters together. … We are going to have to get with the program here and identify what the program is, because it is really an area not just culturally in flux but legally in flux.” As part of the discussion, Arend said the district would also be reviewing the nondiscrimination and harassment policy that the board passed in 2020, which one public speaker at the meeting described as singling out gender nonconforming students for special treatment. “It starts out really good,” San Miguel resident Randall Jordan told the board. “No one should be bullied. No one should be harassed. No one should be belittled. … By the time it gets to the fourth page, all it talks about is transgender.” That special treatment equates to parents not being notified about gender, pronoun, and name changes if a student doesn’t want them to be notified, Jordan said. “We’re talking about 13-, 14-year-old kids,” he added. “I think we need to look at this seriously. This is real dangerous.” One of the board’s main concerns, Arend said, is that the primary individuals who have responsibility for children are their parents. “We do not want to violate the sanctity of the family and the parent/child bond,” Arend added. The California Department of Education states that the right of a transgender student to keep their transgender status private is grounded in both state and federal laws and that disclosing that information to others without the student’s permission may violate anti-discrimination law and the student’s right to privacy. Superintendent Curt Dubost told the board that the Aug. 9 presentation would delineate between what the district is mandated to

do when it comes to student privacy, LGBTQ-plus related issues, and teacher trainings on the topic and what isn’t the law. Board members Frank Triggs and Dorian Baker expressed concerns about what they referred to as “compelled speech”—or requiring teachers to refer to students by their chosen pronouns and names. Triggs said he had requested a link to a presentation sent out ON THE DOCKET The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District is slated to teachers earlier in to talk about LGBTQ-plus issues on Aug. 9 in response to questions from the school board and some parents about teacher trainings at the high school, the year by the Paso where students dealt with a LGBTQ-targeted hate incident last year.

The reviewed with the attorney exactly what was PowerPoint slideshow included updates on how presented,” Dubost told the board. “We canceled the school was improving inclusive practices some of what was going on when concerns on campus, such as restroom access; kindness, started to arise.” inclusion, and unity training; and what Bausch told New Times that several parents resources teachers could share with students. had reached out to him concerned about the issue. “I have to say I’m disturbed by some of the Most of the phone calls, he said, were from parents stuff in that training,” Triggs told the board. upset that their daughter might be showering “You cannot force someone to call a he a she because they’re under the delusion that they are.” with a boy in their gym class.

The slides also “People’s fears, people’s hopes, their dreams indicate that future staff trainings are in the of what Paso Robles can be. People that feel less works and provide a five-step guide for “how to than empowered because of their life choices, do better at getting new pronouns right.” they need to feel safe. Bottom line. If you’re Board member Chris Bausch expressed queer, if you’re transgender, you still have the frustration with the superintendent and staff, right to feel safe. I don’t have to agree with saying he’d asked a month earlier for specifics your choices, but I have to ensure that you feel on what LGBTQ-plus training teachers were safe,” Bausch said. “We’ve got a long way to go currently getting and still didn’t have an in Paso Robles, but parents need to be part of answer. During the June 28 meeting, there the discussion, in my opinion. … Everybody was some confusion as to whether teachers had deserves the chance to come to the microphone, actually attended any training. have their say, be listened to, and then we bring Dubost clarified, saying that there had been it back to the board and say where do we go from some training but he wasn’t certain what it had here.

Election integrity activist files for hand recount of county supervisor race

County race for supervisor, according to June 7 primary election results certified on July 7. Darcia Stebbens, a Paso Robles resident and voter outside of the 4th District, filed the recount request within the five-day window allowed by law following election certification, according to SLO County Clerk-Recorder Elaina Cano. A copy of Stebbens’ filing states that she requested the recount “on behalf of Lynn Compton (not necessarily at the request of).” When reached by phone on July 13, Compton

An outspoken skeptic of local election integrity requested a hand recount of the San Luis Obispo County 4th District supervisor race on July 12—allegedly without the blessing of the losing candidate. Challenger Jimmy Paulding defeated incumbent Lynn Compton by 639 votes—a 51.5 to 48.5 percent margin—in the heated South

told New Times that she does not know Stebbens, was not consulted or involved in her request, and “is not personally contesting [the election].” “I have no involvement. I’m not paying for it. I have nothing to do with it,” Compton said. “She speaks before the board on election integrity. I don’t know her outside of that.” Compton said that she accepts the results of her race.

News to alleviate homelessness, Funk added that the scale of effort is not enough to combat SLO County’s ballooning rate of unsheltered living. “We’ve essentially brought a garden hose to a house fire,” Funk said at the meeting. Previous New Times reporting found that the county ranks third in the United States for people living outdoors in suburban areas. Since 2016, unsheltered homelessness has grown by 22 percent because of scarce housing aggravated by rising rent, limited wages, and COVID-19. The 2019 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count tallied 1,483 homeless people, 79 percent of whom were unsheltered. Collected in February, data for the 2022 count is still in development. The five-year strategic plan will focus on improving sheltering capacity and homelessness prevention and data collection in its first year. The second and third years will look at expanding service capacity and boosting regional participation with the cities involved. In the final two years, efforts will be directed to refining the data, and increase housing capacity. A homelessness division will also be created within the Department of Social Services to carry out many of the tasks. But county officials will also have watchdogs monitoring their progress. Former California state Sen. Sam Blakeslee and SLO attorney Greg Gillett plan to launch an independent group called the Citizens Homeless Accountability Commission. “We are not affiliated with the county. Our goal is to serve as an accountability arm and communicate to the public the gaps and redundancies we find in this plan,” Gillett said. “It’s still a bureaucracy, it’s still a government program. Our role is to put together a group of people who can identify things that aren’t going right in as much realtime as possible.” The day before the panel discussion, city of SLO residents identified something they didn’t think was quite right. Commuters across the city spotted an abandoned coffin on the side of the road at the Walnut and Santa Rosa streets SLO County officials intersection. detail homelessness Eyewitness S.Harris, who requested his reduction plan first name be anonymous, told New Times that he was compelled to stop his car San Luis Obispo County has a plan and take a better look.

“I don’t believe a recount could overcome 600-plus votes,” she said. According to elections code, the recount must begin no later than a week after the request was filed, and the requester must pay a deposit prior to each day of counting to cover the election office’s expenses. Counts take place daily (excluding weekends), for at least six hours a day, until the recount of the race’s 20,899 votes is complete. The counts are to be conducted under the supervision of “special recount boards consisting of four voters of the county appointed by the elections official.” Cano could not be reached for comment before press time. On the morning of July 12, Stebbens, along with a handful of other residents, spoke during the public comment period of the SLO County Board of Supervisors’ meeting to express their doubt about elections. “I’m here today to speak on election integrity, to continue to speak on election integrity,” Stebbens said. “We have local governance that is in question. We have been asking for relevant documents, relevant materials. … We’re not calling into question some of the staff, we’re calling into question the process, and, in fact, some of the results.” Stebbens and Richard Patten, another election skeptic, both referenced ancestral ties to American Revolution figures to frame their comments. “My conscience will not let me remain silent,” Patten said. “I don’t know what we have planned here today right now, but … we are not absolved. We do not have fairness and transparency in our elections, either. They are clouded. They’re kept hidden.” After public comment closed, 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold made a motion to agendize a resolution that would ask Cano to extend the period of time that her office preserves the June 7 election records. The motion died after it failed to get support from a second supervisor. —Peter Johnson

SLOPD informed New Times that the empty coffin was meant for another destination. The homeless woman wanted to sell it at Sunset Drive-In’s swap meet. But she couldn’t make it there, and tried to sell it to passersby. “SLOPD received two calls regarding a coffin on Santa Rosa and patrol did investigate,” Neighborhood Outreach Manager Christine Wallace said via email. “The owner told us she originally purchased it from a yard sale; it had been used as a Halloween decoration.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

Federal ARPA grants go to more local nonprofits after outcry

After a plan to funnel $3 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to a handful of nonprofits drew backlash from dozens of empty-handed applicants, San Luis Obispo County supervisors approved a revised set of allocations on July 12 that includes 35 organizations. Nonprofits that serve local homeless, children, families, and seniors and provide shelter, food, education, arts, health care, and more all received at least $25,000 in the new round of countyadministered ARPA grants. An initial recommendation, rejected by county supervisors in May after public outcry, sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to just seven groups focused on homelessness. “I’m grateful we had a second chance … and were able to share more with the nonprofits, which was the original intent,” 3rd District Supervisor Dawn Ortiz-Legg said. Jenny Luciano, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of SLO County, who spoke out against the narrow list of recipients in May, praised the county’s new approach at the July 12 meeting. Her organization received $25,000 of the allocation to support its youth mentoring programs. “I think it’s important, especially when we’re vocal in the media, to show up and acknowledge the work that’s been done and say, thank you,” Luciano said. “The funding for us this year is super important. We’re serving more kids than we ever have. … This funding will go a long way for us.” The $3 million nonprofit ARPA allocation is just one slice of the $55 million the county received as part of the federal COVID-19 recovery package. Another $6 million went to housing and homelessness efforts and $3 million went to child care organizations. The rest went to the areas of water, sewer, and broadband; public health emergency response; restoration of government services; and small business grants/ workforce development. The top nonprofit grants awarded on July 14 still focused on homelessness: $430,000 to the El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) for the continued operation of its Paso Robles transitional shelter; $350,000 to the Community Action Partnership of SLO (CAPSLO) for homeless outreach and engagement at safe parking sites; and $275,000 to the 5 Cities Homeless Coalition for an emergency shelter in South County. Other high-dollar grants included $200,000 to the SLO Food Bank; $150,000 to the South County Youth Coalition for mental health programs; and a pair of $150,000 grants to the Boys and Girls Club for its youth programs. —Peter Johnson

FBI files complaint against man who took minor from SLO County to Mexico

The FBI lodged a criminal complaint against a 38-year-old man and his accomplice for transporting a minor from Nipomo to Mexico with the intent to engage in an illicit sexual relationship. According to the charge filed by Special Agent Brian Sullivan on July 11, Daniel Navarro of Victorville posed as a teenager on Instagram and sent explicit messages to a 15-year-old from Arizona, whom the document named A.T. Communicating since February, Navarro and A.T. entered an online romantic relationship and he discussed impregnating her. Ring security camera footage caught A.T., who was spending the summer with her step-grandmother in Nipomo, sneaking out the front door in the early hours of July 1. The federal complaint included testimony from A.T.’s cousin, who saw a large, dark vehicle near the residence late on June 30. According to law enforcement, Navarro and his accomplice, Julia Le from Garden Grove, arrived in that car to pick up and hide A.T. in the backseat and drive to the U.S.Mexico border. Missing for roughly 10 days, A.T.’s disappearance rocked Nipomo, with calls for information flooding social media platforms. The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office received the missing person report at 6:30 a.m. on July 1, according to spokesperson Tony Cipolla. “The Sheriff’s Office began an immediate investigation. Since the Sheriff’s Office is the lead investigator, our detectives will work with the U.S. Attorney’s Office with their prosecution of this case,” Cipolla told New Times. Signed off by the SLO Superior Court, a warrant directing T-Mobile to provide historical GPS locations of the perpetrators’ cellphones helped authorities track them. The complaint stated that Navarro and Le were detained on outstanding arrest warrants on July 10 while reentering the United States. By then, they had taken A.T. to Navarro’s father’s house in Mexico, which the pair admitted to officials. As part of the investigation, FBI detectives spoke to Navarro’s ex-wife, who informed them that he had picked up their children and taken them to his father’s house around the same time. Le had also sent Navarro’s ex-wife videos of the children at that residence. Detectives then used geolocation data from those videos to find the house and, subsequently, A.T. She has been reunited with her family. Navarro and Le made their first court appearance in relation to the federal charges on July 13 at the United States District Court in downtown Los Angeles. The charges carry a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison and a potential of life without parole. The SLO District Attorney’s Office also assisted the FBI with investigation. “The matter will be prosecuted in federal court by the United States Attorney’s Office,” Assistant DA Eric Dobroth told New Times. “The [SLO County DA’s Office] prosecutes state law violations and will not be involved in the prosecution in federal court, absent a request for assistance. Federal law provides substantial and heavier penalties for the conduct than do our state laws.” ∆ —Bulbul Rajagopal

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.

LEGAL NOTICE

If you were affected by the 2015 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement A Federal Court authorized this Notice. Para una notificación en español, visite: www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com Để nhận thông báo tiếng Việt, vui lòng truy cập: www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com 如需中文通知,请访问:www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com

A Settlement has been reached in the class action lawsuit called Andrews et al. v. Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. et al., No. 2:15-cv-04113 (PSG:JEM) (C.D. Cal.). What is this about? The lawsuit claims that Plains All American Pipeline L.P. and Plains Pipeline L.P. (“Plains” or “Defendants”) caused an underground pipeline to rupture, resulting in an oil spill along the coast in Santa Barbara County on May 19, 2015. The Settlement is on behalf of members of the Fisher Class and Property Class previously certified by this Court. Plaintiffs for the Fisher Class allege the spill caused long term harm to commercial fishing in the affected class blocks, including significant financial losses. Plaintiffs for the Property Class allege that owners and lessees were unable to use and enjoy their properties as a result of the spill because oil washed up onto their properties and onto beaches adjacent to their properties. Plains denies any claims of wrongdoing and disputes all claims. The Settlement, if approved by the Court, will resolve all remaining claims in the class action litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The Fisher Class Settlement is $184 million, and the Property Class Settlement is $46 million, inclusive of attorneys’ fees and costs. The Court has not decided whether Plaintiffs or Defendants should win this Litigation. The Settling Parties do not agree on whether Plaintiffs would have prevailed on any of their claims against Plains, or the amount of damages, if any, that would be recoverable if the Class prevailed on the claims alleged. Instead, both sides agreed to the Settlement after years of contested litigation, including at the motion to dismiss, class certification, and summary judgment stages. The Parties had also completed substantial discovery and were preparing for trial to commence on June 2, 2022. Who is affected? You are a Fisher Class Member if you are a person or business who owned or worked on a vessel that was in operation as of May 19, 2015 and that: (1) landed any commercial seafood in California Department of Fish & Wildlife (“CDFW”) fishing blocks 654, 655, or 656; or (2) landed any commercial seafood, except groundfish or highly migratory species (as defined by the CDFW and the Pacific Fishery Management Council), in CDFW fishing blocks 651-656, 664-670, 678-686, 701-707, 718-726, 739-746, 760-765, or 806-809; from May 19, 2010 to May 19, 2015, inclusive; or if you are a person or business in operation as of May 19, 2015 who purchased such commercial seafood directly from the Commercial Fishers and re-sold it at the retail or wholesale level. You can find out if you are a Fisher Class Member by going to www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com. You are a Property Class Member if you owned or leased residential beachfront property or property with a private easement to a beach where oil from the 2015 Santa Barbara oil spill washed up and the oiling was categorized as heavy, moderate, or light. You can find out if your property is included by going to www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com, where a list of properties Plaintiffs claim were impacted is posted. What does the Settlement provide? The Settlement, if approved, will result in the creation of two cash settlement funds of $184,000,000 (the “Fisher Class Settlement Amount”) and $46,000,000 (“the Property Class Settlement Amount”), together with any interest earned thereon, the “Fisher Class Common Fund” and “Property Class Common Fund,” respectively. Each of the common funds less (a) any Taxes and Tax Expenses; (b) any Notice and Administration Expenses; and (c) any attorneys’ fees and costs and any service awards to Class Representatives in connection with their representation of the Class, awarded by the Court (the “Net Settlement Funds”), will be distributed to eligible Class Members pursuant to a proposed plan of distribution (“Plan of Distribution”). If you are entitled to relief under the Settlement, the Settlement Administrator will determine your portion of the Net Settlement Fund payable to you pursuant to the Court-approved Plan of Distribution.

Who represents the Class? The Court has appointed Lieff Cabraser Heimann Bernstein LLP, Keller Rohrback L.L.P., Cappello & Noel LLP, and Audet & Partners, LLP (“Class Counsel”) to be the attorneys representing the Class. You will not be charged for these lawyers. Class Counsel will apply to the Court for an award of attorneys’ fees in an amount not to exceed 33% of the total Settlement Amount (no more than $60,720,000 from the Fisher Class Settlement Amount and $15,180,000 from the Property Class Settlement Amount). In addition, Class Counsel will apply to the Court for reimbursement of their litigation expenses (in an amount not to exceed $5.2 million from the Fisher Class Settlement Amount and $1.3 million from the Property Class Settlement Amount). If you want to be represented by your own lawyer, you may hire one at your own expense. What do I need to do to? If you are a Class Member and you wish to get money from the Settlement, you are required to submit a Claim Form available at www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com, or by calling the toll-free number 1‐844-202-9486 to request that a hard copy Claim Form be mailed to you. Your Claim Form and, if necessary, any required supporting documentation as set forth therein must be postmarked (if mailed) or submitted online to the address below on or before October 31, 2022. Plains Oil Spill Settlement c/o JND Legal Administration P.O. Box 91450 Seattle, WA 98111 Email: info@PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com Telephone: 1‐844-202-9486 If you are a Class Member you may object or tell the Court what you do not like about the Settlement. You will still be bound by the Settlement, and you may still file a claim. Objections must be served/filed no later than August 19, 2022. Go to www.PlainsOilSpillSettlement.com for details on how to object to the Settlement. If you are a Class Member and you did not previously opt out of the Class or enter a separate settlement with Plains for which you signed a full release, you are a member of the Class and you will be bound by the release of claims as part of the Settlement. The Fisher Class was first certified on February 28, 2017, and later amended on November 22, 2019. The Property Class was certified on April 17, 2018. You previously had an opportunity exclude yourself from the Fisher Class and the Property Class. If you did not exclude yourself then, you may not exclude yourself now. What happens next? The Court will hold a Final Approval Hearing on September 16, 2022, at 1:30 p.m. Pacific, before the Honorable Phillip S. Gutierrez at the United States District Court for the Central District of California, First Street Courthouse, 350 West 1st Street, Courtroom 6A, 6th Floor, Los Angeles, California 90012-4565. At the hearing the Court will determine whether: (1) the Settlement of $184,000,000 for the Fisher Class and $46,000,000 for the Property Class should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable and adequate; (2) the Judgment as provided under the Settlement Agreement should be entered; (3) to award Class Counsel attorneys’ fees and expenses out of the Fisher and Property Class Common Funds and, if so, in what amount; (4) to award Plaintiffs’ service awards (Class Counsel is requesting $15,000 for each of the 14 Class Representatives) in connection with their representation of the Classes out of the Fisher and Property Class Common Funds and, if so, in what amount; and (5) the Plans of Distribution should be approved by the Court.

V

ince was born in a boxcar in Hardin, Montana. He attended Oceano Elementary and graduated Arroyo Grande High School in 1959. In high school he was a talented athlete who played football, tennis, and wrestled. He was named Eagle of the Year for being an allaround athlete. He attended Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria where he continued his football achievements. Vince was selected to the AllAmerican team as a fullback for the Bulldogs in 1960. The Bulldogs also won the State Championship that year over Riverside City College in the annual Orange Show Bowl game. He attended long enough to play the spring game at UC Santa Barbara before transferring to Washington State where he continued his reputation as a tough fullback for the Cougars from 1962-63. He would earn a bachelor’s degree there and a master’s degree in Portland, Oregon. After college he joined the Peace Corps where he spent some time helping the locals in Bolivia learn how to farm and create a better water supply. His next adventure was a tour in Vietnam with the U.S. Navy Construction Battalion, better known as Seabees. They built bases, bridges, landing strips, and other structures to support the war effort during the Tet Offensive in Vietnam. Vince began his teaching and coaching careers at Parkrose High School in Oregon. He eventually brought his infectious smile and unique ability to connect with his students at Arroyo Grande High School until he went to Judkins Middle School. He also substituted at local high schools for many years. He enjoyed being with the kids and preferred being face to face with his students rather than online. He mentored many kids through his coaching of wrestling and girls’ volleyball. Some of these kids were children of classmates he went to high school with. Within the outpouring of comments and condolences, so many of his former Arroyo Grande High School students (and classmates) recall him as a great teacher and coach with a robust laugh. He is remembered as someone who was very inspiring, patient, and genuine. Vince loved to have fun and loved to dance to reggae music and ride his mortorcycle. His big passion was sports, of all kinds, participating or spectating. He loved to play golf and tennis with friends and family. He was a steady supporter of local teams and would attend basketball games (and other sports) long after his teaching days. He would even go to his cousin’s grandkids’ baseball games to show his support. Vince is survived by his partner of 18 years, Marilyn Morris; three All-American Fullback sons, Stephen, Peter, and William Antonio; four grandchildren, Gage, Raine, Cyrus, and Rose Antonio; two sisters, JoAnn Antonio Bosworth, and Hilda Antonio Fischer. Other survivors include his former wife of 37 years, Diane Antonio, and innumerable cousins and family by whom he will be missed. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Aug. 13, 2022, at Biddle Park in Arroyo Grande (Willow Bluff site) from 1 to 5 p.m.

Whether it’s taking a walk to clear your head or smelling flowers in a backyard garden, getting outside is a dependable way to feel better. “The effect is real, and over the years, scientists have shown that nature can provide stress relief, increase social interaction, encourage physical exercise, and even help soothe mental illness. “But this effect isn’t limited to forests or beaches that may be miles away. Growing research suggests that just about any kind of green space—from hiking trails and coastlines to soccer fields and local parks—can make you happier and boost your mental health.” We really don’t need more houses, especially with the current water and energy situation (“Build or preserve?” July 7).

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY JOHN DONEGAN

Conservatives and guns W hy won’t conservatives agree to what you anti-gun liberals see as “common sense” gun restrictions? In a word: trust. Some of the proposals aren’t that bad, but with your visceral loathing of all guns and gun owners, and your insistence on blaming gun violence on everything but the shooter, we don’t trust you to act rationally and honestly on the subject. You still wouldn’t be satisfied if we acquiesced to your demands. Your party is controlled by anti-gun extremists, and the claims that you are not interested in banning all guns are unconvincing. June was a busy month in the gun control battle. The U.S. Supreme Court rendered a decision striking down New York’s law for issuing concealed carry permits, and then Congress passed legislation regulating firearms. Despite the florid hyperbole of Democrats, the Supreme Court ruling will make little functional difference. It merely holds that New York may not act arbitrarily in denying permit applications. This is already the law applied in 41 states, with only nine states (including California) allowing authorities complete discretion as to who will be granted a permit. Gun crimes by those with with permits are rare. You may be surprised to learn that many of us conservatives are not all that upset about the new legislation. Banning “straw man” purchases, and closing the “boyfriend loophole” is fine with me. Extending background checks into juvenile criminal and mental health records is a good idea. Extending the waiting period from three to 10 days is a nuisance, but not the end of the world. The funding of mental health programs seems like another instance of ineffectual and wasteful Democratic spending just for the fun of it, but what’s new about that? “Red flag” laws, taking guns away from the dangerously insane, can be either good or bad, depending upon how they are implemented. The devil is in the details. It is pretty easy to see how these could be abused and used maliciously by an estranged spouse, feuding neighbor, or a workplace rival. A gun owner might be unjustifiably forced into years of a Kafkaesque struggle to recover his guns from a bureaucracy ideologically inclined to oppose him, merely upon an unsupported allegation. Any “red flag” seizure should be supported by evidence of actual conduct, like serious threats, assaultive behavior, or mental health commitment; be proven by credible sources; and allow for immediate and independent judicial review without cost or the requirement of an attorney. Criminal penalties should be applied for misuse of the process. Many other proposals are problematic. For example, requiring a high tech device to limit the use of a gun to only the owner? I suggest that you visualize needing a gun during a home break in and being put on hold by tech support. A ban on what you call “assault rifles” would only be cosmetic, as these function

just like other rifles long used for hunting or target shooting, and other guns are just as deadly. Truly automatic assault rifles have been illegal for the last 100 years or so. You’re just emotionally reacting to the scary military look and image of the gun. The Uvalde, Texas, shooter would have killed as many people with a typical handgun. It never makes sense to allow people who do not understand a subject to regulate it. Even if all those regulations were enacted, you would still not be satisfied. The carnage in Chicago, Los Angles, Baltimore, and elsewhere would continue unabated using the illegally possessed guns already in existence, and each new atrocity would move you to demand that even more onerous restrictions be imposed upon the law-abiding gun owner. And, even if the entire country banned all guns, seeing the ease with which massive amounts of fentanyl and immigrants illegally enter our borders, it is easy to see a lot of guns being smuggled in to satisfy criminal demand. The recent revelation that the California Department of Justice, headed by a Democratic attorney general, released the personal information of thousands of concealed-carry permit holders, has done nothing to increase our trust. Whether this was intentional or merely negligent, it is hard to see giving even more power to untrustworthy authorities. We are frustrated by the refusal of antigun liberals to confront the true cause of gun violence: the shooters. Liberals refuse to effectively enforce laws already in place, yet demand even more laws. Far more people are killed each year in “catch and release” Chicago alone, including children, than die in the more spectacular mass shootings. Liberals refuse to acknowledge the greater carnage because it would require questioning their bizarre criminal justice agenda and their distaste for imprisoning criminals. If you want to end the current impasse, you’ll need to first abandon your efforts to ban all guns and learn to deal rationally and honestly with the issue. But I doubt that you are capable of that. ∆

Opinion

The Shredder

Absurd turds

I

’m not sure what’s worse: Someone railing at a local school board meeting about how school was only invented so children could learn to read the Bible or a rat pack of SLO County residents continuing to insist that some thing is wrong with elections. “We do not have fairness and transparency in our elections,” brokenrecord Richard “I Am Redistricting” Patten told the SLO County Board of Supervisors on July 12. “They are clouded. They’re kept hidden.” The very same day, Patten’s election count observing buddy Darcia Stebbens filed a ballot recount demand for primary election votes in the 4th District supervisor race “on behalf of Lynn Compton (not necessarily at the request of),” who lost to challenger Jimmy Paulding by more than 600 votes and said she totally accepts the election results. Stebbens joined Patten on the public comment mic that morning, telling the board that she will “continue to speak on election integrity.” “We have local governance that is in question,” she said. In question by whom? You and your buddy Patten? The person who lost the election believes the count is accurate enough to concede that she lost. And who’s paying for this recount? Because it’s not going to be cheap, and it sure sounds like Compton’s campaign chest—or whatever’s left of it—is off the table. The crazy thing to me is that both

Patten and Stebbens sat outside the county Elections Office and watched county staffers count the primary election ballots—what’s not transparent about that? Meanwhile, the wheel of right-rightright-wing crazies keeps on squeaking during public comment at the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District’s board meetings. On July 12 (There’s that date again!), frequent public commenter Peter Burn waxed poetic on how diversity, equality, and inclusion is a mask for critical race theory trying to “turn our children into activists” hell-bent on achieving the “destruction of our government.” You know, because socialism! “We should be giving our students the tools that they need to succeed, not how to be equal,” he said. Equality, schmequality, amirite? Bootstraps are really all that students need! The agitator who followed Burn was convinced that the board had forgotten the origins of school—Bible reading, ’riting, and ’rithmatic. He had to be physically removed from board chambers after his aggressively belligerent rant, which ended with “you guys suck.” Whew! There was a moment there where I wasn’t sure anyone was going to make it. But the board will live to fight another

culture war, with its next battle currently scheduled for Aug. 9. At that time, the district is going to discuss what board President Chris Arend calls “LGBT—I can’t get the whole sequence of letters together,” what board member Lance Gannon referred to as “LBGT,” and what new trustee Frank Triggs believes involves grooming and recruiting. “You cannot force someone to call a he a she because they’re under the delusion that they are,” Triggs stammered, later saying that it’s a violation of a teacher’s First Amendment right. “That’s compelled speech,” board member Dorian Baker added. “It’s tricky,” Arend said. “I don’t think that we’re going to get to a situation where we’ll be compelling teachers to use a specific pronoun because, you know, a little child wants to be.” “Are we at that point?” Baker asked. Gosh. I think we’ve been telling teachers what to say and how to act for a very long time. Remember that discussion last year, when the board voted to tell teachers exactly how they could teach anything that the district might “define” as critical race theory? You all sound like a bunch of hypocrites. And belittling students? You guys do suck. Time to get woke. And by woke, I mean, can we get some people who aren’t old white guys to run for the Paso school board, please? We’ll take anybody at this point. That’s at least four ignoramuses out of seven. How do you think the LGBTQplus policy discussion is going to go? I’ll definitely be tuning in to find out.

Avoid Unneeded Knee, Back & Shoulder Surgery!

Meanwhile Superintendent Curt Dubost’s mannerisms toward the board on June 28, when it discussed agendizing the discussion, were telling. And so was the fact that no one could really figure out whether the LGBTQ-plus “training” everyone was so upset about had actually happened. Turns out, there was training, but it was in compliance with state mandates. Maybe? Dubost said he couldn’t be sure. “We did stop when the concerns were raised,” Dubost said. “If you had to put a stop to it, there was something ongoing,” Gannon said. Sounds like everyone up there has a good handle on things. Kind of like how SLO County’s new homelessness plan is just going to eradicate the homeless crisis. In five years, the county wants to put “a big dent in the problem.” But we can’t even define the scope of the problem in 2022—the homeless Point-In-Time Count happened in February and the data is still in the “development” process. Where’s the preliminary data? Santa Barbara County, which conducted that count at the same time, announced those numbers soon after its count took place. Good thing SLO County’s five-year plan includes improving data collection in the first year. Maybe we’ll get the numbers for 2022 by 2023. In which case, we’ll already be a year behind in the five-year plan. ∆ The Shredder is ready for thoughts and prayers. Send them to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

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.

Los Osos Library presents new photography showcase, Cell Fun Aware

Guests of a new solo exhibition at the Los Osos Library will find a collection of metal and canvas prints by local photographer Kurt Rightmyer. Using only a cellphone and basic photo editing software, Rightmyer created a collection of transfigurative imagery for the exhibit, titled Cell Fun Aware, which debuted at the library in July. “As a photographer, I strive to capture moments in time as signals of confluence between natural events, the metaphysical bent and its extent, prophecy in signs, poetry in lines, awareness of the present, its evanescence, and its projection,” Rightmyer said in a statement on the artist’s website. “I look for what is dynamically transmutable within stasis, where foundational reality intersects with the metaphysical possibilities that digital artifice reveals.” To find out more about Rightmyer’s work, visit rightmyer. art. For more info on Rightmyer’s current exhibit at the Los Osos Library, call (805) 528-1862. The library is located at 2075 Palisades Ave., Los Osos.

The hills are alive PCPA breathes fresh life into Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music

A

bland thumbs up gesture wouldn’t do the Pacific Conservatory Theatre’s (PCPA) latest offering justice, nor would any star rating under five, for that matter. If only I had 16—going on 17—stars or thumbs to help illustrate my scoring. I walked into the Marian Theatre confident that I would enjoy PCPA’s new iteration of The Sound of Music, but I couldn’t have anticipated the excessive amount of times an audible “aww” escaped my lips during the Saturday night performance. The material is iconic. The songs are endorphin-inducing. But none of that matters without a good cast, and PCPA’s ensemble checks that box in spades. Emily Trask, as plucky postulant nun Maria, embodies the “drop of golden sun” lyric she sings during “Do-Re-Mi.” Her radiant, steadfast enthusiasm is consistently infectious throughout the show, set in 1938 Austria. When Maria is dispatched to serve as a governess for a large household, the family’s strict patriarch, Captain von Trapp, doesn’t respond warmly to her free-spirited demeanor—immediately, at least. The widowed captain, played by the always engaging George Walker, treats his home like a military vessel. He often uses a whistle to summon his servants or call upon his seven children. I’m not going to beat around the bush. These kids steal the show every chance they get. From youngest to oldest, the von Trapp children are Gretl (Camila Papincak), Marta (Kiera McGehee), Kurt (Alex Robertson), Brigitta (Joss Robertson), Louisa (Sophia Robertson), Friedrich (Nicolas Lo), and Liesl (Sierra Anastasi). The fastest way to tell if it’s

GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD? To shorten his prison sentence, inmate Jeff (Miles Teller, right) volunteers to take part in daily drug experiments on a mysterious island, in the new Netflix thriller, Spiderhead.

T

wo prison inmates (Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett) form a strong bond during their sentences at an experimental penitentiary, run by a suave drug developer (Chris Hemsworth), in this sci-fi thriller. (107 min.) Editor’s note: Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood and Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal filled in for regular reviewers Glen and Anna Starkey.

Caleb Regardless of how long or short its source material—a sci-fi tale originally published in The New Yorker—is, Spiderhead feels more like a Black Mirror episode stretched too thin than a featurelength thriller. I haven’t read George Saunders’ “Escape from Spiderhead,” so I’m not sure how different it is from Netflix’s adaptation. Hypothetically, if Spiderhead is a direct, word-for-word realization of Saunders’ work, then I doubt I would enjoy reading it any more than watching the film, which starts with an exciting premise but had me feeling lukewarm by the end. The movie opens on an island where a state penitentiary is located. But the property’s exterior looks more like a James Bond villain’s lair or somewhere Tony Stark would be comfortable living than a traditional prison. The interior is just as bougie, and the jail is managed by Steve Jobs-types rather than burly guards or a hardened warden. The man in charge is Steve Abnesti, a business-casual hipster played with the right amount of charm and intentional cringeyness by Chris Hemsworth. Abnesti obviously wants to be liked by his inferiors and the inmates of the prison, but there’s a corporate coldheartedness lurking beneath his polite demeanor. We learn that the island is somewhere convicts can volunteer to go and shorten their prison sentences by taking part in daily drug experiments. One of the drugs Abnesti tests out on inmate Jeff (Miles Teller) is a real-world love potion. These tests start to complicate genuine feelings that Jeff develops for another inmate, Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett). Their tangled relationship might be the most redeeming aspect of the movie— maybe Spiderheart would have been a more appropriate title?

SPIDERHEAD

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth, Bulbul? Skip it What’s it worth, Caleb? Stream it Where’s it showing? Netflix Bulbul The movie could have definitely explored its own title better. Saunders’ Escape from Spiderhead reveals that the “spiderhead” is the prison facility’s control room where the drug experiments are monitored. All the other rooms, like the prisoners’ bedrooms, common area, kitchen, and so on, stretch out from the control room like spider legs. Saunders doesn’t give much detail to this story, though, and it intentionally reads like a collection of hurried journal entries. But Netflix’s Spiderhead doesn’t translate as well. The premise itself is intriguing but we have Saunders to thank for that. The movie almost uses that as a crutch and gives us a mediocre and bloated screenplay. Not every piece of writing needs to be blown up on the big screen with big-budget names. I’d be happier to watch Hemsworth reprise Thor again, and I was definitely happier watching Teller in Top Gun: Maverick (yes, New Times loves this movie, in case you missed it). While the story is wacky, it might have waited too long for the Hollywood treatment. We’re all too used to mind-warping storylines thanks to shows like Black Mirror and Bandersnatch. So Spiderhead really needed to pull out all the stops to be truly memorable. Maybe it would have been a hit if it had premiered soon after The New Yorker published the story in 2010. Who knows?

Caleb I’m glad you brought up Top Gun: Maverick because Teller isn’t the only link between the most shirtless movie of 2022 and Spiderhead. Both films share the same filmmaker at the helm, Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion, Only the Brave). I’m always intrigued when directors are able to put out two films in the same year. The most impressive example has to be Steven Spielberg’s pair of 1993 releases, Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List. When did he find time to sleep? I haven’t seen Top Gun: Maverick yet, but I’ve heard great things. And I love Tron: Legacy to death. Maybe Kosinski should stick to his strengths— revisiting solo blockbusters from the ’80s that never branched out into franchises. Footloose, Flashdance, E.T.—the world is your oyster, Joseph! Bulbul Agreed, but I’m absolutely OK with E.T. never getting a sequel. Spiderhead did get it right with Hemsworth as its villain though. He brings Abnesti to life and shows us just how ruthless and punchable he is. I wish the movie explored more of Lizzy’s tragic story that landed her in the facility. Crafted to be Jeff’s love interest, Smollett’s character doesn’t exist in Saunders’ version. They do have effective on-screen chemistry. But like most of the other elements, Spiderhead has wasted potential that leaves you wondering about a film that’s best to forget.

eveloped by Robert Levine and Jonathan E. Steinberg based on Thomas Perry’s 2017 novel of the same name, The Old Man is the perfect showcase for Jeff Bridges, the 72-yearold heartthrob whose charisma hasn’t diminished with age. His Dan Chase is a man with secrets, and the series goes back and forth in time to the young Dan Chase (Bill Heck) working as a field operative in the Middle East, where he disobeys orders. After the death of his beloved wife, Chase is living a quiet life in Upstate New York with his two dogs. He keeps in contact with his daughter, Emily Chase (Alia Shawkat), who understands her father’s past and knows the potential danger he could be in if found out. In the first episode, the unthinkable happens, and Chase is on the run. Propulsive and action-packed, this is a terrific series about a changed man who has to reach back into his past to revive his deadly skills. When Chase

avy SEAL Lt. Cmdr. James Reece (Christ Pratt) is haunted by his past. He lost his entire platoon on a covert mission gone wrong, leaving him with feelings of culpability and grief. As new evidence about the failed mission comes to light, he begins to realize there’s a conspiracy afoot that endangers him and his family, wife Lauren (Riley Keough) and daughter Lucy (Arlo Mertz). Though a bit bloated at more than seven hours, the series will satisfy action junkies as we watch Reece—now struggling with a brain tumor caused by an experimental drug given to him without consent—methodically use his training to hold those responsible accountable—people like businessman Steve Horn (Jai Courtney), who’s trying to sell the company that made the drug before the truth

Algae awareness SLO-based Kelpful sustainably sources seaweed for edible education on the California coast

K

elpful co-founder and CEO Melissa Hanson caught “seaweed fever” when she listened to a Bioneers podcast about kelp farming a few years ago. A background in sustainable agriculture, working in the food industry, and an ever-present interest in the politics of food gave her the tools to learn everything she possibly could about aquaculture and seaweed farming. Hanson’s rewards? An understanding that the California coast holds a cornucopia of seaweed, and her company Kelpful. “The goal has always been to do aquaculture as a way to grow sustainable food in a regenerative way. That wasn’t available to us, so we started sustainably wild harvesting in order to get familiar with the native species, develop products, and test out the market. We wanted to see if people were interested at all in buying seaweed, eating seaweed, and using seaweed more in their daily lives,” Hanson said. Kelpful became a hit quickly after Hanson and co-founder and Sales Manager Jules Marsh launched the company in 2019. Their stand welcomes seaweed lovers every Thursday at the downtown San Luis Obispo Farmers’ Market. Customers can choose from three types of furikake seasonings. Sea Sprinkles is the original mix made with wild nori and kelp, sesame seeds, sea salt, and toasted sesame oil. Its fiery counterpart—Spicy Sea Sprinkles—comes with chili flakes. They both can add a nutty umami kick to avocados, popcorn, eggs, noodles, and even mac and cheese. Kelpful’s latest sprinkles addition is Everything but the Wildfire— an edible jab at California’s climate crisis that’s packed with hemp hearts, poppy seeds, citrus olive oil, roasted garlic, and of course, seaweed, among other things. But these gluten-free and vegan sprinkles aren’t Kelpful’s only offerings. Their seaweed offerings include resealable bags of nori and kombu, and the Immunity Broth Mix. “A lot of people didn’t know that the seaweed that grows here is even edible. They had no idea that this vast, incredible resource is right here,” Hanson said. “Seaweed has so many benefits. I know it’s a cliché, but it really is a superfood. It’s known for having a high concentration of trace minerals like iodine, magnesium, iron, and calcium. It’s high in omega-3s and 6s. In general, seaweed are much more nutrient-dense than land-based vegetables.” An alga, seaweed becomes a sponge for minerals as it thrashes around in the ocean. Hanson and her team at Kelpful would like to farm their own to maximize sustainability, but Californian regulations continue to ensure that the

NORI NOURISHMENT Making toasted nori is a labor-intensive process involving hours of harvesting followed by a challenging washing process and a dayslong drying period.

She also credits Kelpful’s success to her team’s passion to put in the elbow grease. While many people want to farm kelp, Hanson said that not everyone is willing to experiment, fail, and try again. Cutting through the politics of aquaculture in California takes persistence, and wild harvesting requires consistent labor. Find Kelpful products at spots like Bread Bike, Lincoln Market Deli, and Morro Bay’s Avocado Shack, in addition to local farmers’ markets. “I just love being in the intertidal zone and being intimate with that ecosystem is really special,” Hanson said. “It feels special to have the privilege of going into the amazingly beautiful diverse ecosystem and gather food and medicine to share with the community and the world.” ∆ Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal is stocking up on Spicy Sea Sprinkles.

LEGAL NOTICES

FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT the City of San Luis Obispo has completed an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act. Project Title: Project Number: Project Applicant: Project Location:

Prado Road Bridge Replacement 91252 City of San Luis Obispo, Public Works Primary Address: Prado Road/South Higuera Intersection

Project Description: The City of San Luis Obispo has completed an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Prado Road Bridge Replacement Project. The IS/MND found the following environmental factors to be less than significant with mitigation incorporated: Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural and Tribal Cultural Resources, Geology and Soils, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Hydrology and Water Quality, Noise, Recreation, Transportation, and Mandatory Findings of Significance. The project is located approximately 1,400 feet east of U.S. Highway 101 on the western segment of the signalized intersection of Prado Road and South Higuera Street. Based on a search of the State Water Resources Control Board’s GeoTracker database, California Department of Toxic Substance Control’s EnviroStor database, and CalEPA’s Cortese List website, there are no active hazardous waste cleanup sites within the project site. The City of San Luis Obispo proposes to replace the existing Prado Road Bridge over San Luis Obispo Creek with a wider, single-span bridge structure and construct roadway improvements to Prado Road and the Prado Road/South Higuera Street intersection. The project also includes the restoration and enhancement of an approximately 0.753acre off-site mitigation area located within the Righetti Ranch development area in the vicinity of the Tank Farm Road/Orcutt Road/Union Pacific Railroad corridor to offset unavoidable temporary and permanent projectrelated impacts to riparian habitat and jurisdictional water features. The project also includes construction of a noise barrier wall to be located along the northeastern corner of the Prado Road/South Higuera Street intersection to reduce vehicle-related noise impacts to nearby residential uses. Reference copies of the IS/MND are available at the City’s website at: https://www.slocity.org/government/ department-directory/community-development/ documents-online/environmental-review-documents . To arrange alternative means to view the study, please contact Wyatt Banker-Hix at wbanker@slocity.org or 805-783-7859. The 30-day public review period for the IS/ MND will extend from Friday, July 15, 2022, to Monday, August 15, 2022. Anyone interested in commenting on the document should submit a written statement to the City of San Luis Obispo, 919 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, Attention: Wyatt Banker Hix, Engineer III, or by email to wbanker@slocity.org, by 5:00 p.m., August 15, 2022. A public meeting is scheduled at 6:00 p.m. on July 26, 2022, to evaluate the project. Interested persons are welcome to attend at 25 Prado Road, San Luis Obispo CA 93401, the City Corporation Yard. For more information on the proposed project, its environmental effects, City environmental procedures and deadlines, please contact: Project Manager: Wyatt Banker-Hix, wbanker@slocity.org (805) 783-7859.

PROJECT IDENTIFICATION Notice is hereby given that sealed bids will be received at the office of the County Clerk at 1055 Monterey Street, Suite D120 (1st. Floor), San Luis Obispo, CA 93408, until 3:00 PM on Thursday, August 11, 2022 for Airports Job Order Contract (Airports JOC 22-01; and Airports JOC 22-02) for work to be performed at Countywide Airports projects, with Contract Documents for said work on file in the office of the Clerk of the Board. Please note that metered parking is extremely limited. DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Airports (Airports) is responsible for developing and maintaining the Oceano (L52) and San Luis Obispo (SBP) airports. On May 26, 2021, Airports and County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works (Public Works) established a Memorandum of Understanding for airport specific Project Development/Project Delivery. Under the terms of the MOU, Public Works provides project and contract management services to Airports. A Job Order Contract (JOC) is a competitively bid, firm-fixed-price indefinite-quantity contract. It includes a collection of detailed repair and remodel tasks and specifications that have established unit prices. It is placed with a Contractor for the accomplishment of repair, alteration, modernization, rehabilitation, etc., of buildings, structures, or other real property. JOCs have the ability to include both building/facility work (“vertical construction”) as well as infrastructure work (“horizontal construction”). This is ideal for the various projects on the horizon for Airports. Ordering is accomplished by means of issuance of a Job Order against the Contract. The Job Order will reference the Detailed Scope of Work and set forth the Job Order Completion Time and the Job Order Price. The Contractor, under the JOC Contract, furnishes management, labor, materials, equipment and engineering support needed to perform the work. The Contractor is guaranteed to receive the opportunity to perform Job Orders totaling at least $50,000 under Airports JOC 22-01, or at least $50,000 under Airports JOC 22-02. The County estimates the initial maximum dollar value of the Contract to be $750,000 for the one-year contractual period. The Contractor is not guaranteed to receive this volume of Job Orders. It is merely an estimate. The County has no obligation to give the Contractor the opportunity to perform Job Orders in excess of the Minimum Contract Value of $50,000. The law allows for the Contract amount to be increased up to $5,402,865 within the one-year contractual period, upon mutual consent and provided additional bonds are provided. Therefore, the County reserves the right to increase the amount of the Contract allowable by law based on budgetary considerations and performance of the Contractor. The JOC Contract includes a Construction Task Catalog® (CTC). This CTC is based on the use of experienced labor and high-quality materials. All of the unit prices incorporate prevailing local wage, equipment and materials cost data. The CTC is work segment based. The CTC also incorporates local activity, climate and geographic features. The County selected The Gordian Group’s Job Order Contracting (JOC) Solution (Gordian JOC SolutionTM) for their JOC Program. The Gordian JOC SolutionTM includes Gordian’s proprietary JOC software applications (JOC Applications) and construction cost data (Construction Task Catalog®), which shall be used by the Contractor solely for the purpose of fulfilling its obligations under this Contract, including the preparation and submission of Price Proposals, subcontractor lists, and other requirements specified by the County. Bidders will offer four (4) pricing Adjustment Factors. Two (2) Adjustment Factors for Projects in General Facilities and two (2) Adjustment Factors for Projects in Secure Areas - for both Normal Working Hours and Other Than Normal Working Hours (overtime) to be applied to the Construction Task Catalog® Unit Price. These Adjustment Factors will be proposed separately. The Construction Task Catalog® and the Contractor’s Adjustment Factors will be incorporated in the awarded Contract. EXAMINATION AND PROCUREMENT OF DOCUMENTS The contract documents shall consist of one bound volume containing hard copies of the Airports JOC 22-01; and Airports JOC 22-02 Invitation to Bidders, Instructions to Bidders, Bid Form, Supplements to Bid Form, Agreement, Bond Requirements and Forms and Guarantees, General Conditions, Construction Site Management and Water Pollution Control, Contract Appendices; and a CD-ROM containing the above documents as well as the Construction Task Catalog® and Technical Specifications.

Any Bid submitted by a Bidder not represented at the pre-bid meeting will be deemed non- responsive and rejected by the County. BID OPENING 5.01 All bids must be addressed to County of San Luis Obispo, and delivered to the County Clerk, County Government Center, 1055 Monterey Street, Suite D120 (1st. Floor), San Luis Obispo, CA 93408, and shall bear the Project Title, Project Number and Name of the Bidder. 5.02 Said bids shall be opened and read aloud by the County Clerk, on August 11, 2022, at 3:15 PM at a public meeting. 5.03 Bidders may bid separately on any or all of the contracts; however, only one contract may be awarded to any bidder. The apparent lowest responsive and responsible bidder shall be determined sequentially for each contract in the following order: Airports JOC 22-01; Airports JOC 22-02. The apparent lowest responsive and responsible bidder on each JOC contract will be excluded from consideration for successive contracts. No Contractor will be permitted to submit more than one (1) bid for each Job Order Contract solicitation. Bids by related Contractors are prohibited. For purposes of this solicitation, one Contractor (“Contractor A”) will be determined to be related to another Contractor (“Contractor B”) if, (i) Contractor A either directly or indirectly owns ten percent (10%) or more of the shares or capital interest in Contractor B; (ii) Contractor A has more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting interest in Contractor B; or (iii) one or more of a Contractor’s owners is also an officer, director, or partner in the other Contractor’s company.

MID-STATE FAIR JULY 20–31, 2022

Homework: Ask a friend or loved one to tell you a good secret. Newsletter.freewillastrology.com ARIES (March 21-April 19): With a fanciful flourish, Aries poet Seamus Heaney wrote, “I ate the day / Deliberately, that its tang / Might quicken me all into verb, pure verb.” I’d love for you to be a pure verb for a while, Aries. Doing so would put you in robust rapport with astrological rhythms. As a pure verb, you’ll never be static. Flowing and transformation will be your specialties. A steady stream of fresh inspiration and new meanings will come your way. You already have an abundance of raw potential for living like a verb—more than all the other signs of the zodiac. And in the coming weeks, your aptitude for that fluidic state will be even stronger than usual.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): According to Arthurian myth, the Holy Grail is a cup that confers magical powers. Among them are eternal youth, miraculous healing, the restoration of hope, the resurrection of the dead, and an unending supply of healthy and delicious food and drink. Did the Grail ever exist as a material object? Some believe so. After 34 years of research, historian David Adkins thinks he’s close to finding it. He says it’s buried beneath an old house in Burton-on-Trent, a town in central England. I propose we make this tantalizing prospect your metaphor of power during the coming weeks. Why? I suspect there’s a chance you will discover a treasure or precious source of vitality. It may be partially hidden in plain sight or barely disguised in a mundane setting.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’m pleased to authorize you to be extra vast and extensive in the coming weeks. Like Gemini poet Walt Whitman, you should never apologize and always be proud of the fact that you contain multitudes. Your multivalent, wideranging outlook will be an asset, not a liability. We should all thank you for being a grand compendium of different selves. Your versatility and elasticity will enhance the well-being of all of us whose lives you touch.

Step right up! Market your business in the fun-filled Mid-State Fair program.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your memory is substantial. Your sensitivity is monumental. Your urge to nurture is deep. Your complexity is epic. Your feelings are bottomless. Your imagination is prodigious. Because of all these aptitudes and capacities, you are too much for some people. Not everyone can handle your intricate and sometimes puzzling beauty. But there are enough folks out there who do appreciate and thrive on your gifts. In the coming weeks and months, make it your quest to focus your urge to merge on them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I love these lines by Leo poet Conrad Aiken: “Remember (when time comes) how chaos died to shape the shining leaf.” I hope this lyrical thought will help you understand the transformation you’re going through. The time has come for some of your chaos to expire—and in doing so, generate your personal equivalent of shining leaves. Can you imagine what the process would look and feel like? How might it unfold? Your homework is to ponder these wonders.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A British woman named Andie Holman calls herself the Scar Queen. She says, “Tight scar tissue creates pain, impacts mobility, affects your posture, and usually looks bad.” Her specialty is to diminish the limiting effects of scars, restoring flexibility and decreasing aches. Of course, she works with actual physical wounds, not the psychological kind. I wish I could refer you to healers who would help you with the latter, Virgo. Do you know any? If not, seek one out. The good news is that you now have more personal power than usual to recover from your old traumas and diminish your scars. I urge you to make such work a priority in the coming weeks.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Ancient Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” But a Spanish proverb suggests a different element may be necessary: “Good luck comes by elbowing.” (Elbowing

refers to the gesture you use as you push your way through a crowd, nudging people away from the path you want to take.) A Danish proverb says that preparation and elbowing aren’t enough: “Luck will carry someone across the brook if they are not too lazy to leap.” Modern author Wendy Walker has the last word: “Fortune adores audacity.” I hope I’ve inspired you to be alert to the possibility that extra luck is now available to you. And I hope I’ve convinced you to be audacious, energetic, well-prepared, and willing to engage in elbowing. Take maximum advantage of this opportunity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Many Scorpios imagine sex to be a magnificent devotion, a quintessential mode of worship, an unparalleled celebration of sacred earthiness. I endorse and admire this perspective. If our culture had more of it, the art and entertainment industries would offer far less of the demeaning, superficial versions of sexuality that are so rampant. Here’s another thing I love about Scorpios: So many of you grasp the value of sublimating lust into other fun and constructive accomplishments. You’re skilled at channeling your high-powered libido into practical actions that may have no apparent erotic element. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to do a lot of that.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A Sagittarius reader named Jenny-Sue asked, “What are actions I could take to make my life more magical?” I’m glad she asked. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to raise your delight and enchantment levels, to bask in the blessed glories of alluring mysteries and uncanny synchronicities. Here are a few tips: 1. Learn the moon’s phases and keep track of them. 2. Acquire a new sacred treasure and keep it under your pillow or in your bed. 3. Before sleep, ask your deep mind to provide you with dreams that help generate creative answers to a specific question. 4. Go on walks at night or at dawn. 5. Compose a wild or funny prayer and shout it aloud as you run through a field. 6. Sing a soulful song to yourself as you gaze into a mirror.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Being able to receive love doesn’t come easy for some Capricorns. You may also not be adept at making yourself fully available for gifts and blessings. But you can learn these things. You can practice. With enough mindful attention, you might eventually become skilled at the art of getting a lot of what you need and knowing what to do with it. And I believe the coming weeks will be a marvelous time to increase your mastery.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “If I don’t practice one day, I know it; two days, the critics know it; three days, the public knows it.” This quote is variously attributed to violinist Jascha Heifetz, trumpeter Louis Armstrong, and violinist Isaac Stern. It’s a fundamental principle for everyone who wants to get skilled at any task, not just for musicians. To become a master of what you love to do, you must work on it with extreme regularity. This is always true, of course. But according to my astrological analysis, it will be even more intensely true and desirable for you during the coming months. Life is inviting you to raise your expertise to a higher level. I hope you’ll respond!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In May 2021, Jessica and Ben Laws got married on their dairy farm. The ceremony unfolded smoothly, but an unforeseen event interrupted the reception party. A friend who had been monitoring their herd came to tell the happy couple that their pregnant cow had gone into labor and was experiencing difficulties. Jessica ran to the barn and plunged into active assistance, still clad in her lovely floor-length bridal gown and silver tiara. The dress got muddy and trashed, but the birth was successful. The new bride had no regrets. I propose making her your role model for now. Put practicality over idealism. Opt for raw and gritty necessities instead of neat formalities. Serve what’s soulful, even if it’s messy. ∆
