Mid-State Fair’s agreement to purchase Pioneer Park from Paso Robles is uncertain

A

s last-minute preparations came together for “the biggest little fair anywhere,” the Paso Robles City Council was deciding the fate of a seven-year-long negotiation with the California Mid-State Fair over Pioneer Park. “This agreement in its current form—while it was great in 2015, it doesn’t pass the mustard in 2022, and we need to rescind this,” City Manager Ty Lewis said during the July 19 City Council meeting. “It doesn’t preclude the city and the fairgrounds to try to come to some other alternative arrangement.” But the Mid-State Fair board—also known as the state’s 16th District Agricultural Association—feels otherwise about its agreement to purchase 5.6 acres of Pioneer Park. Paso’s City Council approved the deal in November 2016, but the state agency that oversees real property acquisition has yet to sign off on it and recently requested changes to the terms. Mid-State Fair board President Krista Sabin and CEO Colleen Bojorquez said they had spoken with the state Department of General Services about its issues with the current agreement and believe they can be worked out without throwing the past seven years of work away. Some of the issues include a lease agreement that would enable Paso’s youth teams to continue using the lighted baseball field until another one can be built or secured; language in a reversion clause, which would give the city the right to purchase the property back if the fair doesn’t use it for its intended purpose; and the state’s Surplus Land Act, which changed in 2019 and now requires “surplus land” to first be offered to affordable housing developers before it can be sold for another purpose. Paso could apply for the land to be exempted from the act, but if the state believes a sale is noncompliant, the city could be fined up to 30 percent of the purchase price—currently set at $800,000. “While I understand the city’s frustration with the delay in process, because our board shares in that frustration, I have assurance from the General Services Department that the reversion issue and the Surplus Land Act issue can be resolved,” Sabin said during the July 19 hearing on whether to rescind city approval of the agreement. “The California Mid-State Fair and the event center is a treasure to our community and its significant impact to the local economy cannot be denied.” Sabin said that the fair board was shocked when it received a letter from the city in

Pismo Beach police officer resigns after complaint cites on-duty sexual relations

A one-time KSBY reporter filed a citizen’s complaint against Pismo Beach Police Department Sgt. Adrian Souza (who’s since resigned) about his conduct during their personal relationship that spanned between July 2020 and January 2022. In a letter to Police Chief Jeff Smith dated Feb. 15, the woman mentioned that her interaction with Souza began after a traffic

LOOKING TO EXPAND Part of the California MidState Fair’s plans for expansion of the Paso Robles Event Center includes purchasing Pioneer Park from the city.

March of this year putting an end date on the agreement, which hadn’t had a sunset date. “When the city and the fair came together to negotiate the terms of that agreement, it was done in good faith and with the best interest of our city and the fair in mind,” Sabin said. “This close-by-June-30 or we have no deal, that was quite an arbitrary deadline, and one that actually felt like a real betrayal of the valued partnership and relationship that we have with the city.” She added that Pioneer Park is a key element to the success of the Paso Robles Event Center, the Mid-State Fair, and plans to expand both in the future. Without use of Pioneer Park, which the fair currently leases from the city for parking, “the fair as we currently know it and our large interim events would not be possible,” Sabin said. “We do not see this acquisition as one of convenience, we see it as an acquisition of absolute necessity,” she added. “We simply do not have the space to continue to provide the events that we currently do without this property … without that property, those events can’t grow.” And growth is a major component of the event center’s future. Plans called for expanding and reorienting the grandstand arena and a full demolition and remodel of one of the livestock buildings, according to a staff report. Pioneer Park would help by providing additional areas for staging and other operations that would otherwise have to fit the current footprint.

Without that growth, some of the big events hosted in Paso might have to look for other venues, Sabin said, which would mean a revenue loss for the city and its businesses. Several Paso residents told the City Council that they were worried that the Mid-State Fair would have to move to another city if it wasn’t able to purchase Pioneer Park. SLO County 1st District Supervisor John Peschong, who spoke during public comment on the issue, said that the council should reconsider rescinding the agreement and move forward with trying to close the deal. “This has been negotiated for quite a long time, but it is the state,” Peschong said. “We take a long time to get things done. I do think they’re moving in the right direction. And I think the state is going in the right direction.” He added that the fair is the No. 1 economic driver for Paso: “Do anything you can to make sure you continue this agreement.” City Council members said they didn’t feel comfortable pulling out of the agreement without having a better idea of what the state might want in a different agreement or whether some of the issues in the current agreement could be resolved. Ultimately, the board continued the item until the first meeting in November to give city staff, the fair board, and the state some more time to discuss the issues. “It costs us nothing to continue this item, and it may resolve the problem,” Councilmember Steve Gregory said. ∆ —Camillia Laham

stop because she wasn’t wearing a seat belt. Weeks later, she said, they started dating before breaking up in June 2021—but they continued to see each other. “While on duty, Sgt. Souza would send me explicit pictures and videos, like the ones I have included below, and talked about how much he could ‘use a release’ because of how stressed he was at work,” her letter read. “With hopes of our reconciliation, I would encourage him to visit me at my apartment on [redacted]. On Nov. 16 [2021], while on day shift, after groping and kissing on this visit, he asked me to perform fellatio on him, so I did.”

She added that each time she met Souza while he was on duty, he would remove his ear or microphone cord and would double check that his camera was off. Her allegations and the attached explicit video, photograph, and undated text exchange set off an Internal Affairs investigation. The day after receiving the letter, the Police Department said it notified Souza about potential policy violations and future interviews about the allegations. He was placed on paid administrative leave. Souza resigned on June NEWS continued page 6

10, before completing the disciplinary process. Following his resignation, Pismo Beach city staff made available redacted records pertaining to the investigation. One of these documents included a nearly 50-page transcript of a phone interview between the woman and Greg Palmer, the Police Department’s attorney. There, she stated that Souza sometimes met with her at Judkins Middle School and the Shell Beach tennis courts— locations she said he frequently brought past girlfriends to. That transcript also noted her reason for filing the complaint: The news reporter wanted to eventually become a police officer herself. “The more and more oral boards I did, and I knew I had one coming up, I was like I gotta say somethin’, ’cause that’s, that’s not a good officer … I have to come forward with this and let them take care of that,” she said in the phone interview. “Like, one, that makes me not fit to be an officer, two, that makes me a bad [redacted], and three, that just makes me a bad person, so I knew I had to tell someone about his conduct, ’cause I don’t know what else was possible.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

Paso Robles moves closer to allowing recreational cannabis dispensaries With the potential to bring in almost $1 million in revenue from recreational cannabis storefronts, Paso Robles is planning to host community meetings in August and September to get input on potential regulations that could allow commercial dispensaries to operate in the city. Paso Mayor Steve Martin said he’s heard from several residents who are interested in having access to recreational cannabis in the city, as well as people who want to bring retail sales to the community. “There seems to be an interest of these folks to be an integrated part of the community, not just another business,” Martin said during the July 19 City Council meeting, adding that there are more ways the city can benefit from the industry than by simply bringing in tax revenue. In November of 2020, Paso voters passed a cannabis business tax ordinance that includes a 10 percent tax on gross receipts of retail sales. However, Paso currently doesn’t allow retail cannabis sales. The city limits the industry to two non-storefront medical marijuana dispensaries that can make deliveries (not considered retail sales). Paso has one permitted non-storefront medical marijuana business operating in the city, Dubs Green Garden Collective, and one going through the permitting process, DRES/Kinfolk Holistic. And although all other commercial cannabis businesses are prohibited within the city, “delivery services based outside the city are legally able to deliver within the city, once obtaining and holding a state license and a Paso Robles business license,” according to a staff report. Dubs co-owner Grace Hall said that her company is losing out because they can only deliver medical marijuana within

Find your joy, laughter, tears, and sorrow in this year’s winning short stories

E

very year brings a new batch of teeny, tiny stories complete with plots, details, characters, and surprise twists. Murder, love, the life of pets, commentary on current events, and cake all get encapsulated in 55 words or less. Some of our authors are first-timers, some are seasoned 55 Fiction vets, some are locals, and some are from far-flung places. This year, we also received a number of entries from Wisconsin—one English teacher’s assignment to her students at Arrowhead Union High School. Out of hundreds of entries, our judges at New Times narrowed the winners down to the following stories.

Homestead

The traveler marveled at the grass, the vibrant green that surged forth in the waning of winter’s vigilance. He caressed the blades with weathered and stained hands. “Here,” he whispered, “I will make my home.” “Sir,” a voice said above him, badge glinting in the sunlight. “This is a public park. You can’t camp here.” Kip Lorenzetti San Luis Obispo

Twelve

Twelve is my lucky number. I guess that’s why I crashed on 12th Street. And that’s why I have 12 stitches to keep my ear from falling off. I was going 12 miles per hour over the speed limit. I assume 12 isn’t the other victim’s lucky number. They died 12 minutes after the crash. Lauren Theiler Hartland, Wisconsin

Revoke his license

Outside, I hear a loud sound. I look to see my coworker’s brand new car that just got all dented up. “Andrew, look.” “You gotta be kidding me.” I run to the phone to call the police. “Stop!” “They are driving off now.” I run outside and follow them. “Stop, Andy! That was my grandpa.” Andy Mills Sussex, Wisconsin

Up, up, and away

Today is my sixth birthday. Today, I get six balloons. I go to the store with my mom to pick them out. The lady fills them up. “I put extra helium in these.” She smiles and winks at me. I take them outside to the car, and suddenly I feel super light. “Andrew!” Mom screams. Andrew Mayhew Hartland, Wisconsin

Virtual love

I’m a fool for love. This man says he wants me to be his; I believe him. My eyes hurt from blue light. I dream about his blond hair and blue eyes. Turning the corner of an abandoned building, I see an overweight, black-haired man. His greasy face smiles, “You look just like your picture.” Lauren Theiler Hartland, Wisconsin

Doing so much with so little

“Thanks for coming to this interview.” “My pleasure.” “Conversations with your former colleagues have been especially informative. They’ve never seen anyone so enthusiastically adept at provoking such intense outrage, fear, and hatred with so little factual basis. We’ve concluded that, for our political talk show host and commentator team, you’d be a perfect fit.” Steve Recchia Reno, Nevada

Meatloaf Surprise

“Honey, I’m home!” the husband announced, walking to the kitchen. “Just in time,” the wife replied. “The meatloaf’s ready.” The husband sat down at the table. “What meat is this?” the husband asked while chewing. “I don’t recognize the taste.” The wife smiled. “Oh, you’ve definitely had this before. I think her name was Stephanie?” Emily Porter Wauconda, Illinois

You’re bleeding

All of a sudden, the man’s hand fell onto the carpet. He was bleeding. He glanced around frantically to see if anyone had noticed. All eyes were on his hand. “Not again!” he said as he bent over to pick it up. Now everyone knew that he had the ace of spades. Ruthie Anya Princeton, New Jersey

Consider Cupid “Consider Cupid,” sighed Jupiter. “Years ago Cupid forwent his bow and arrow. The hint of coercion and even violence made it impossible for its intended use. Today, Cupid uses candied hearts. Not always effectively.” At the bottom of the trash can lay two hearts, “Be mine” and “Always true.” Jeff Lahr Santa Maria

Who’s next? Survivors report that a single gunman, believed to be a disgruntled former employee, entered the production facility this afternoon, shouting about outsourcing jobs to China, and began shooting. At this time, much remains unknown, including the fatality count, any possible impacts on this year’s holiday season, and the whereabouts of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. Steve Recchia Reno, Nevada

Sweet for Jell-O and violence Katrina’s new boyfriend (a middleweight boxer) was a little rough, but he shared her passion for strawberry Jell-O. But last Friday night, while she was watching him flatten the nose of a hapless opponent, it occurred to her that life sometimes imitates art, and she was no longer hungry. Ray Abney Paso Robles


Suicide mission Randall silently watched his emotionally troubled son hang himself. He resisted the urge to save him. Tearfully he whispered, “Son, this time I didn’t interfere,” and then dialed 911 for the last time. He spoke quietly into the phone, “This is Randall Baster,” then hung up. He waited outside for the police to arrive. Angela F. Myrick Odenton, Maryland

Nana’s locket His aggression struck her from behind. The chain grew tighter around her neck. An aged gold that told the history of her Nanu, now gone. Showing it off was a pleasure, she lit up when telling his stories. It was her prized possession, one that caught the eye of another. “I’ll see you soon, Nanu.” Dylan Pettinato Island Lake, Illinois

Sweet red Deep red drips from the knife. He plunges it back into the thick surface, cutting it open. He watches the red spill. He dips his finger into the liquid, placing it on his lips. He was surprised by the taste and how sweet it was. This, by far, had been his favorite velvet lava cake. Alli Kruse Sussex, Wisconsin

Bed hog Last night I woke up between my bed and the wall. He’s sprawled out across the bed, leaving me no space to lie down. I quietly grab my blanket and lie on the carpeted floor. A few hours later, I woke up to his wet snout pressed against my face. “Good morning, Scout,” I whisper. Haylie Peterson Sussex, Wisconsin

Dessert Book Club tonight. Marilyn made cherry pie, carrot cake, oatmeal cookies, and lavender shortbread. Linda would eat pie. Gina, a tiny slice of pie and five cookies. Connie would say carrot cake is not cake, before eating two pieces. Marilyn poisoned everything except the shortbread. Marilyn loved baking. Marilyn liked shortbread. Marilyn hated Book Club. Hope Whitehead Grover Beach

Verbosity kills “Your cruel indifference,” she’d written. God, she’s wordy! Russel thought, his gaze drifting to the last line. “So, I’ve decided to end my life … ” The letter fluttered to the floor. He clutched his chest. Returning for her things, Sylvia found him dead, page two still tucked inside the envelope. “ … with you.” Diane Smith Arroyo Grande

The parachute

Skydiving was always a dream of hers. To feel the weightlessness and the brief fear before she pulls the life-saving string. As she falls from the sky now, she wishes she could’ve jumped from the plane instead of being thrown from it during the crash. She also wishes that she had a parachute. Laynie Walloch Hartland, Wisconsin

Twin tablets, double bed

“I haven’t slept well in ages.” “Hnh.” “How ’bout you?” “What? Same. If you don’t, I don’t.” “Wait, just because I can’t get any, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.” “I’m … speechless.” “Besides, you’d catch up. For you, it’s easy. I need pills, darkness, lying perfectly still, praying it works.” “Honey?” “Yeah?” “What’re we talking about?” Diane Smith Arroyo Grande

When zombies learn to cook Follow the rules, my father said. When zombies learn to swim, move to the desert. When zombies learn to drive, get a fast car. When zombies learn to cook, no tacos de sesos. Triple digits now in Borrego Springs. My IROC Camaro baking in the parking lot of Carmelita’s. The carne asada tacos are delicious. Renne Gardner San Luis Obispo

Back in my day People used to say good things about me. I had so much energy. I kept this community going. Now? I’m expensive to take care of and expensive to get rid of. I’m in the way. Out of touch. An eyesore. Maybe I am. But I’ve been here longer than most of you. Respectfully, The Stacks. Aaron Izek Pasadena

A bad dream is not an omen

A grey turned black

She’s taking his last ticket to ride

Stockholm syndrome

Three crows, the usual ones, perched and squawked in the tallest sequoia at the edge of town. There were only nine sequoia left. The crows usually jumped around town in the hottest part of the day, but today they’d found something more worthy to acknowledge. A drainage ditch skirted by wildflowers concealed a woman’s body. David Bateman Atascadero

“Thanks for the ride; I’ve been hitching for hours.” “You’re kind of lucky—my dad told me not to pick up hitchhikers.” “He’s right. For all you know, I could be a serial killer.” Her hand slowly sought the loaded revolver under her seat. “Oh c’mon—two serial killers ending up in the same car?” Bruce Badrigian Morro Bay

The cul-de-sac had grown accustomed to a gunshot or two every few months. Neighbors for decades, well-off retirees, they’d check on Ben in the morning. They knew the scenario, “He’s drunk again!” He’d claim thwarting another alien abduction. Naomi’s short-lived relief vanished upon entering the kitchen. Smiling, and truly triumphant, Ben pointed toward the table. David Bateman Atascadero

The cold cement walls stare at me. The chain hugs my ankle tight. It begins to hurt. A knock hits the door as I swing my body toward the back wall. “Good morning, love,” he says in comfort. “I missed you.” But this time it felt like I was starting to mean it. Δ Alli Kruse Sussex, Wisconsin

Your family wants you back

“I was in a cult once. I lost all touch with reality. I lost my family. I escaped, and got my life back. Now I help others escape from cults.” “Why’re you telling me?” “Your family wants you back.” “I’m not in any cult, you idiot! Now get out of here! It’s time for Tucker.” Steve Recchia Reno, Nevada

Lunch time

I watched the little hippo as he swam across the warm pond. The colorful parrot swirled in the skies, and the friendly elephant waved to me with his trunk. Lurking in the corner, the fearful tiger snuck behind the silly monkey. Quickly, I scooped the tiger up and slurped him down with my chicken soup. Nora Perugini Hartland, Wisconsin

Opinion BY KEN HAGGARD

Growing up with guns A response to John Donegen’s gun article on July 14

A

s a teenager in south Texas in the early 1950s, I grew up among guns. They were just a natural part of things. Every household seemed to have some. Our kitchen pantry, for example, housed a .30-06 deer rifle because my old man had once hunted deer. We also had a semiautomatic .22 caliber pistol for emergencies, such as rabid possums or visiting rattlesnakes. These firearms just sat there quietly. They were definitely not play toys or artifacts for big-boy military dress-up. They were considered killing tools, no more and no less. In addition, my three brothers and I wouldn’t think of hunting deer because we’d seen Disney’s movie Bambi at a very impressionable age in the late ’40s and had never gotten over the terror involved in the opening scene. There was, however, a definite fascination with the different forms and history of guns. For example, many handguns were brought to school to be shown around and traded during recess. There were small muzzle-loading derringers—tiny, cute things that could fit in a woman’s purse. There were exotic pin-fired French revolvers from the turn of the century, evoking movies involving the French Foreign Legion. There were even pearl-inlayed flintlock dueling pistols. It was amazing how many historical guns were available to 16-yearold males in this rural setting. Our high school was a pretty tough place, yet for all this, it never crossed our minds to actually point these weapons at anyone, much less load and shoot at a person. So, what changed? Well, three things changed! First change: massive technological development. The Cold War between the USSR and the USA resulted in massive efforts to improve killing power from nukes all the way down to armament of individual soldiers. The difference between World War II weapons and the Cold War version was like the difference between a Ford Model T and a Tesla Model 3. World War II machine gun squads of three to five soldiers had less firepower than a single soldier with a lightweight air-cooled assault weapon and very efficient ammunition clips. The result in increased firepower was such that an untrained 18-year-old could hold off a whole town’s police department while systematically slaughtering their children, as happened in Uvalde, Texas (about 70 miles from my old high school). Second change: Personal firearms started becoming fetishes. Many people don’t understand what a fetish is so here’s the dictionary definition. Fe-tish: 1. a material, commonly an inanimate object regarded with awe as

being the embodiment or habitation of a potent sprit, or having magic potency. 2. Any object of blind reverence or devotion. I’m not saying we didn’t have our own teen fetishes in 1951, but it was certainly not related to guns and death. It was more related to sex, or more often, hoped-for sex. We lived at large distances, a double date might require hundreds of miles of travel. Our closest thing to fetishes was the hot car. My old man’s Oldsmobile Rocket 98 would often travel hundreds of miles on a typical Saturday double date. (Gasoline cost about 25 cents per gallon.) The car was also capable of taking on anybody in the occasional drag race, sometimes part of the dating scene. In addition, it was large enough to provide roomy luxury for the hoped-for submarine races occurring at drive-in movie theaters or open fields during a successful date. Third change: Personal guns progressively became a highly organized money-making industry. A very peculiar aspect of our capitalist system is that it is OK to sell products openly that are unhealthy as long as enough “freedom” is applied to the equation. In the early ’50s, tobacco smoking filled this perverse niche in our economic system. My father, for example, was a chain smoker of Chesterfields. It probably shortened his and my mother’s lives. (It was obnoxious enough that my brothers and I avoided cigarettes like the plague.) Millions of early deaths were the result of this cynical situation. Personal guns are essentially the new tobacco industry, cynically making gobs of money on supplying technically sophisticated fetishes to unsophisticated impressionable youth in the name of freedom. If this little spiel annoys any reader, I’m sorry. But I think a 70-year romp through small-town American history, where we call a spade a spade, can help illuminate the very difficult situation in which we now find ourselves. ∆ Retired Cal Poly professor Ken Haggard is also a retired U.S. Army Reserve captain and a retired architect.

Now, thanks I stand to be corrected, but I believe to the hearings, there’s overwhelming that the city of San Francisco created a evidence that Trump and his allies were sub-committee for parks and it funds a at the helm of it. portion of the parklets, and the owner of We heard from former members of the the building nearest to it also pays.

The Shredder

Po-po, pot, and projectiles

N

othing humanizes the police more than a salacious story about a torrid affair gone wrong, amirite? Such stories remind us that police are people just like you and me (Well, not me. I’m an office machine devoid of sexual needs). You and police officers, on the other hand, need on-duty oral sex and have favorite make-out spots (in this case Judkins Middle School and the Shell Beach tennis courts). The affair in question came to light after a former (name redacted!) KSBY reporter dutifully reported her affair with now-resigned Pismo Beach Police Sgt. Adrian Souza to Police Chief Jeff Smith, explaining the affair began in July 2020 after Souza pulled the woman over for not wearing a seatbelt while looking sexy AF (OK, I added the sexy AF part). Apparently, the former reporter wants to be a police officer just like her former elicit lover, yo, Adrian! “I’m like, I didn’t want them to know what I’d been doing with one of their officers, like that, that makes me look bad,” she inarticulately explained to Pismo Police attorney Greg Palmer. “I’m not innocent in that, like I, I didn’t wanna be known as the blow-job girl of some badge-bunny status when I’m tryin’ to be an officer, but then, you know, the more and more oral boards I did, and I knew I had one coming up, I was like I gotta say somethin’, ’cause that’s, that’s not a good officer, that’s not, like I, I have to come forward with this and let them take care of that.”

I’m guessing the unnamed woman was not an on-air reporter. Sheesh! Anyway, she sounds tragically human and would no doubt make a deeply flawed police officer who someday soon may be patrolling our streets. If you’re not going to wear a seatbelt, stay sexy AF, SLO County! Hey Paso Robles, how’re your cannabis regulations going? Do they make sense yet? Paso has no brick-andmortar dispensaries and only allows medical marijuana deliveries, but since mobile cannabis dispensaries are regulated by the state, non-Paso companies have no compelling reason not to deliver to Paso, which means Paso isn’t collecting taxes on recreational pot entering the city. D’oh! Perhaps worse, the medical mobile dispensaries are getting hosed by being forbidden from expanding into the recreational market. Their only silver lining is you only need to be 18 to get medical marijuana, and any pot-hungry 18-year-old with a computer knows 20 minutes and $80 will score you an online prescription. According to expert Ajay Kolluri, regulations like Paso’s are adding to a statewide problem of a manufacturing glut and a retail bottleneck, which adds to a continuation of the illicit market. Kolluri estimates SLO County is short nine cannabis retailers, and Paso could generate $920,000 in tax revenue if it would allow two dispensaries. The Paso City Council is mostly for exploring the idea, except for John Hammon: “There’s plenty of places to get

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.

Split Screen

Thor soars A galactic serial killer (Christian Bale) seeks the extinction of the gods, including Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the god of thunder, in this cosmic adventure from Marvel Studios and writer/director Taika Waititi. ( 119 min.) Editor’s note: Regular reviewers Glen and Anna Starkey are on vacation. Calendar Editor Caleb Wiseblood and Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal filled in. Caleb From batty to baddy, Christian Bale—who hasn’t been in a comic book film since his Batman trilogy ended in 2012—takes on the villainous role of Gorr the God Butcher in Marvel’s latest offering, Thor: Love and Thunder. The film opens on a desolate desert planet, where we witness Gorr’s tragic origin, which I won’t spoil. Armed with a powerful, mythic weapon, Gorr embarks on a vengeful quest to destroy the gods of the universe—the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that is. Don’t expect any mentions of Jehovah or Krishna on his hit list. Of course, our titular god of thunder (Chris Hemsworth) becomes a target. I’ve enjoyed all three of Thor’s previous solo outings (Thor: The Dark World is the weakest, but still underrated). I’m not sure how I’ll feel after rewatching this one, but right now I honestly think it’s my favorite of the four. Like Thor: Ragnarok, this entry was written and directed by Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), who some have complained brings too much humor to the film and not enough earnestness. I completely disagree—I think he nailed that balance perfectly. For a film with space vikings; chariots led by screaming, Hulk-sized goats; and a crazy god killer on the loose, there were more than a few moments I found surprisingly moving, especially in scenes with Natalie Portman, who reprises her role as Thor’s love interest, Jane Foster, and has a unique subplot of her own. Bulbul I haven’t kept up with Marvel Cinematic Universe since The Avengers: Infinity War and WandaVision, so Thor: Love and Thunder was a great trip down the old Marvel superhero lane! I thoroughly enjoyed Thor: Ragnarok because of

how to be creepy in the most likable way possible, a feat he’s previously pulled off in films like American Psycho and The Machinist. One of Gorr’s first scenes follows his attack on New Asgard—a village on Earth occupied by the Asgardians who survived Thanos’ attack in Avengers: GOD BOD Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as Marvel’s god Infinity War (the of thunder in his fourth solo outing, Thor: Love and Thunder. town’s nostalgic, touristy aesthetic honestly reminded me of downtown THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Solvang).

Child actor turned singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis plays BarrelHouse Brewing

I

magine an embarrassing childhood photo, the kind your mom likes to take out and show relatives to humiliate you. Now image your childhood photos were broadcast for the world to see—you in your adorably dorky Girl Scout uniform, you in bangs with Pippi Longstocking pigtails, you with Lucille Ball. OK, that last one would probably be pretty bitchin’, but still, imagine you can’t seem to get away from your childhood that haunts you so often your only choice is to occasionally satirize yourself. Welcome to Jenny Lewis’ life, which might elicit pity except she’s weathered the childhood actor anchor and soared to new heights as a musician. Lewis began her acting career in 1983 as the voice of Ruby on It’s an Adventure, Charlie Brown, but she’s perhaps best known for her turn as Hannah Nefler—opposite Shelley Long and Craig T. Nelson—in Troop Beverly Hills (1989). She worked constantly over the next decade in films such as Foxfire, Little Boy Blue, and Pleasantville when she abruptly retired from acting to form the rock band Rilo Kiley with fellow child actor Blake Sennett, and Pierre de Reeder and Dave Rock. The group was an overnight sensation, but they eventually disbanded in 2013, and Lewis has gone on to an amazing solo career as well as collaborations in groups such as Jenny & Johnny and Nice As Fuck. This Thursday, July 28, Numbskull and Good Medicine present Jenny Lewis at BarrelHouse Brewing (7 p.m.; $35 at goodmedicinepresents.com). Lewis’ songs can be autobiographical, for instance “Little White Dove” about visiting her hospitalized dying mother, who Lewis believes stole her acting money from shows like Growing Pains to fund illegal drug dealing, but she’s also said she wants listeners’ imagination to share a role in

her storytelling. She’s been through the Hollywood ringer, navigating our patriarchal culture, and has come out the other side a strong-as-steel woman. Hear her roar! Numbskull and Good Medicine also bring horticulturist-turned-musician Gregory Alan Isakov to the Performing Arts Center of SLO on Sunday, July 31 (8 p.m.; $45 to $57 at pacslo.org; ages 5 and older), with opener Daniel Rodriguez. A dollar per ticket will be donated to directly fund safe housing for Ukrainian refugees in Poland through the Palaces for People coalition. They also are hosting country act Mike and the Moonpies with special guest Rob Leines at The Siren on Sunday, July 31 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $17 presale at goodmedicinepresents.com).

Roaring for gelato

ALWAYS PUSHING Master gelatier and Leo Leo Gelato owner Niccolo Lekai is playing with more than 300 recipes for gelato, ranging from saffron to a sprinklestrewn mermaid flavor.

Leo Leo Gelato brings a sweet, creamy taste of Italy to Paso Robles and beyond

M

aster gelatier and Paso Robles native Niccolo Lekai’s favorite animal isn’t the lion, but the beast is emblematic of his Italy-speckled childhood, hence the stylized Lion of Venice stamped on Leo Leo Gelato’s pints. “We just thought that the name had a fun little ring to it,” Lekai laughed. “You see the lion being used in Florence, just as a symbol of power. I had to make the lion look a certain way because oftentimes it’s used really aggressively with teeth and fangs.” Leo Leo, pronounced layo layo and literally translating to “lion lion,” reared its head in Paso Robles in 2010 as a way for then-college graduate Lekai to find his footing in a post-recession economy. While he was in college in San Diego, he worked for a gelato maker on Coronado Island. He became a barista and learned how to scoop gelato, eventually learning how to make it himself and manage the store. But it was networking at a specialty food show in the Bay Area that really kicked Leo Leo into gear. “I met some people with Technogel, which is a brand of machine that we use. They allowed me at the time to develop my recipes using their floor model that they were demoing out, with the intention of selling it to the California market, Lekai said. “So, I’d make all my samples, come back here [Paso Robles], load up a freezer, drive up to San Francisco. We wound up developing enough of a client base where we felt we had something to stand on.” With his parents’ help, Lekai converted the ground floor of a salmon-pink building in Paso Robles into a production plant. Lekai made the gelato and his father, Andrea, took care of the administration.

Beat the heat SWEETLY STYLISH Leo Leo Gelato is now available in colorful 8 ounce tubs that bear Lekai’s version of the famous Lion of Venice.

Now with 12 employees, Leo Leo also runs a scoop shop at the Paso Market Walk, ships to clients across the country, and has a distributor in Las Vegas. Lekai’s Italian roots shine through in flavors like the stranocciola—a creamy hazelnut flavor with Nutella folded through it—the pannacotta, and the chocolate-studded stracciatella, which are among Leo Leo’s more than 50 year-round and 20 seasonal offerings. Lekai said he has created up to 300 flavor recipes, but there’s one Holy Grail that continuously eludes him. “A place that we used to go to when I was a little boy was Badiani’s. The owner is Paolo Pomposi. He is my idol. He makes this incredible Buontalenti,” he said. “My dream is to try to make this Buontalenti flavor. It’s a sweet cream flavor, but my

goodness, it is so rich and creamy and smooth. I don’t know how to do it.” Lekai explained that it is crucial for him to nail down an effective sweet milk base recipe, which can later be a springboard for more creative flavors. After almost 20 years in the gelato business, he thinks he has finally found his stride, especially with a base that uses locust bean gum as a stabilizer instead of eggs. But while trying to pay homage to Pomposi, Lekai simultaneously understands the need to pay attention to the American sweet tooth. “I realized that people here don’t have that same relationship with Italian flavors that I did growing up. You have to have cookies and cream, cookie dough, and the other American flavors. That’s

how you can get the attention of our own target market,” he said. Many of Leo Leo’s ingredients highlight SLO County’s bounty. The honey and lavender come from San Miguel, the caramel trickles in from Grover Beach, the pistachio butter hails from Templeton, and Cal Poly occasionally provides strawberries while the university’s cows always supply the milk. “When I was growing up here, all we had were walnuts and almonds. There were some meat cows like Black Angus but there wasn’t the industry like there is today,” he said. “Being able to support them is great because when they grow, we grow. It also helps with our supply chain.” The gelateria also collaborates with local businesses to produce themed and seasonal flavors. A union with J. Lohr Wines created a honey-infused chardonnay gelato, and teaming up with Pasolivo resulted in a tangerine olive oil flavor. Currently, Leo Leo is working with Bethel Road Distillery to whip up frosé options. FLAVOR continued page 30

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology

EDUCATION TODAY

Homework: When it’s impossible to do the totally right thing, you can do the half-right thing. Example? Newsletter.freewill.astrology.com ARIES (March 21-April 19): Fiction-writer John Banville tells us, “There are moments when the past has a force so strong it seems one might be annihilated by it.” I suspect that’s sometimes true for many of us. But it won’t apply to you Aries anytime soon. In fact, just the opposite situation will be in effect during the coming months: You will have more power to render the past irrelevant than maybe you’ve ever had. You will wield an almost indomitable capacity to launch new trends without having to answer to history. Take full advantage, please!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Researchers have proved that lullabies enhance the health of premature babies being cared for in hospitals. The soft, emotionally rich songs also promote the well-being of the babies’ families. I bring this to your attention because I believe you should call on lullaby therapy yourself in the coming weeks. Listening to and singing those tunes will soothe and heal your inner child. And that, in my astrological opinion, is one of your top needs right now. For extra boosts, read fairy tales, eat food with your hands, make mud pies, and play on swings, seesaws, and merry-go-rounds.

(May 21-June 20): Dancer and singer-songwriter FKA Twigs has taken dance lessons since she was a child. In 2017, she added a new form of physical training, the Chinese martial art of wushu. Doing so made her realize a key truth about herself: She loves to learn and practice new skills. Of all life’s activities, they give her the most pleasure and activate her most vibrant energy. She feels at home in the world when she does them. I suspect you may have similar inclinations in the coming months. Your appetite for mastering new skills will be at an all-time high. You will find it natural and even exhilarating to undertake disciplined practice. Gathering knowledge will be even more exciting than it usually is.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian author Laurie Sheck writes, “So much of life is invisible, inscrutable: layers of thoughts, feelings, and outward events entwined with secrecies, ambiguities, ambivalences, obscurities, darknesses.” While that’s an experience we all have, especially you Cancerians, it will be far less pressing for you in the coming weeks. I foresee you embarking on a phase when clarity will be the rule, not the exception. Hidden parts of the world will reveal themselves to you. The mood will be brighter and lighter than usual. The chronic fuzziness of life will give way to a delightful acuity. I suspect you will see things that you have never or rarely seen.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It’s always advisable for you Leos to carry on a close personal relationship with mirrors. I’m speaking both literally and metaphorically. For the sake of your mental health, you need to be knowledgeable about your image and monitor its ever-shifting nuances. And according to my analysis of the astrological omens, you are now authorized to deepen your intimate connection with mirrors. I believe you will thrive by undertaking an intense phase of introspective explorations and creative self-inquiry. Please keep it all tender and kind, though. You’re not allowed to bad-mouth yourself. Put a special emphasis on identifying aspects of your beauty that have been obscured or neglected. By the way, Leo, I also recommend you seek compassionate feedback from people you trust. Now is an excellent time to get reflections about your quest to become an even more amazing human.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): At your best, you are a flexible purist, an adaptable stickler for detail, and a disciplined yet supple thinker. Maybe more than any other sign of the zodiac, you can be focused and resilient, intense and agile, attentive and

graceful. And all of us non-Virgos will greatly appreciate it if you provide these talents in abundance during the coming weeks. We need you to be our humble, understated leader. Please be a role model who demonstrates the finely crafted, well-balanced approach to being healthy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In my Astrological Book of Life, your life purposes as a Libra may include the following: 1. to be beautiful in the smartest ways you can imagine and smart in the most beautiful ways you can imagine; 2. to always see at least two sides of the story, and preferably more; 3. to serve as an intermediary between disparate elements; 4. to lubricate and facilitate conversations between people who might not otherwise understand each other; 5. to find common ground between apparent contradictions; 6. to weave confusing paradoxes into invigorating amalgamations; 7. to never give up on finding the most elegant way to understand a problem. PS: In the coming weeks, I hope you will make extra efforts to call on the capacities I just named.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Author Clive James loved the Latin term gazofilacium, meaning “treasure chamber.” He said that the related Italian word, gazofilacio, referred to the stash of beloved poems that he memorized and kept in a special place in his mind. In accordance with astrological omens, Scorpio, now would be an excellent time to begin creating your own personal gazofilacium: a storehouse of wonderful images and thoughts and memories that will serve as a beacon of joy and vitality for the rest of your long life. Here’s your homework: Identify 10 items you will store in your gazofilacium.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tips to get the most out of the next three weeks: 1. Keep your interesting options open. Let your mediocre options shrivel and expire. 2. Have no regrets and make no apologies about doing what you love. 3. Keep in mind that every action you perform reverberates far beyond your immediate sphere. 4. Give your fears ridiculous names like “Gaffe” and “Wheezy” and “Lumpy.” 5. Be honest to the point of frankness but not to the point of rudeness. 6. Don’t just run. Gallop.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn poet Richard Hugo wrote, “It doesn’t bother me that the word ‘stone’ appears more than 30 times in my third book, or that ‘wind’ and ‘gray’ appear over and over in my poems to the disdain of some reviewers.” Hugo celebrated his obsessions. He treated them as riches because focusing on them enabled him to identify his deepest feelings and discover who he really was. In accordance with astrological omens, I recommend a similar approach to you in the coming weeks. Cultivate and honor and love the specific fascinations at the core of your destiny.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Author Violet Trefusis (1894-1972) and author Vita Sackville-West (1892-1962) loved each other. In one letter, Violet told Vita, “I want you hungrily, frenziedly, passionately. I am starving for you. Not only the physical you, but your fellowship, your sympathy, the innumerable points of view we share. I can’t exist without you; you are my affinity.” In the coming weeks, dear Aquarius, I invite you to use florid language like that in addressing your beloved allies. I also invite you to request such messages. According to my reading of the planetary omens, you are due for eruptions of articulate passion.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’d like to honor and pay homage to a past disappointment that helped transform you into a beautiful soul. I know it didn’t feel good for you when it happened, but it has generated results that have blessed you and the people whose lives you’ve touched. Would you consider performing a ritual of gratitude for all it taught you? Now is an excellent time to express your appreciation because doing so will lead to even further redemption. ∆
