citizen-requested hand recount of San Luis Obispo County’s 4th District supervisor race is now four weeks in and about 60 percent complete. So far, it has not changed one vote in the challenged June 7 race between Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding. As of Aug. 9, special SLO County recount boards had tallied 12,391 of the 20,899 total ballots. Paulding won 6,767 of those and Compton won 5,624, which mirrors the initial count, according to the clerk-recorder’s office. The certified election results state that Paulding defeated Compton by 639 votes, a margin of 3 percentage points. SLO County Clerk-Recorder Elaina Cano said that her staff had finished isolating the 4th District ballots on Aug. 9 and is focused now on completing the count. “We are now in the process of manual tallying the remainder of the precincts,” Cano told New Times by email. “Every day we are updating the results and posting them on the website.” The citizen who requested the recount, Darcia Stebbens of Paso Robles, is responsible for covering the cost of the effort. She has to pay about $3,000 per day to continue it. Stebbens and Arroyo Grande resident Richard Patten teamed up with the SLO County Republican Party to form a political action committee that’s raising money for the recount. Financial disclosures for that committee have not yet been filed. A New Times email to the committee—named the SLO County Citizens Action Team—went unreturned before press time. On Aug. 8, Stebbens went on KPRL’s Sound Off and said that “several” local residents are helping cover the costs. “I’ll call them concerned citizens who have been assisting me paying for the recount,” Stebbens said. In the interview, Stebbens indicated that she doesn’t expect the election results to change based on the recount, but said the group is looking for any evidence of voting irregularities and fraud. Without citing evidence of any fraud found, she compared it to counting up a drawer of $1,000 in cash—the cash may add up to $1,000, she said, but it may contain “irregular dollars.” “We’ll be coming back with a report that will indicate, here are the vulnerabilities we have seen,” Stebbens said. “Ultimately, we don’t want to have the machines counting any ballots.” According to the committee’s website, the group is looking to raise $150,000 for not just

Dan DeVaul’s legal team wants judge to toss Sunny Acres labor lawsuit Sunny Acres sober-living facility founder Dan DeVaul and his attorneys objected to the labor lawsuit filed by three residents and program participants, arguing that the plaintiffs are not traditionally defined employees. Filed on Aug. 9 by Tardiff & Saldo Law Offices, the notice of objection defined the case as “not a typical wage and hour case of employee against employer.” Sunny Acres filed the original labor litigation in April, accusing DeVaul of failing to provide minimum wage,

“the recount investigation,” but “court cost[s].” It doesn’t elaborate on what kind of court costs it anticipates. The local recount proponents—alongside 5th District SLO County Supervisor Debbie Arnold—indulged in more election fraud talk at an “Exposing Election Fraud” event held in Atascadero on July 23, featuring national election skeptics David and Erin Clements. Organized by 4 The Republic, a far-right local group, the Clementses were described as a “powerhouse couple from New Mexico who, when witnessing the nonsensical results of the 2020 election, felt called to find out WHAT HAPPENED?” “To every thinking American, it was abundantly clear that America’s REAL CHOICE was Donald J. Trump—as witnessed through his numerous rallies across this nation, drawing well over 5 figures in attendance,” 4 The Republic said in its introduction. The Clementses, who are behind election audits in Otero County, New Mexico, have toured the U.S. with three-hour presentations of their unsubstantiated election fraud theories. The couple recently lobbied the Otero County Commission to refuse to certify the June 7 primary election (the New Mexico Supreme Court then ordered the commission to certify it). After their presentation, Supervisor Arnold, who voted not to certify the SLO County primary results last month, thanked the couple

and said she would continue pushing for handcounting ballots in SLO County. “We have a lot of smart patriots in this room,” said Arnold, flanked by Stebbens and Patten in the front row, according to event video. “You’ve given us confidence. We made a run at this before and were shut down publicly. It feels like to me our action needs to be asking for hand counted paper ballots.” During the event, a 4 The Republic organizer thanked Arnold and 1st District Supervisor John Peschong for attending the talk. In an Aug. 9 phone call with New Times, Peschong clarified that he was not actually at the event but watching on Zoom for “about an hour and a half,” at the invitation of “a couple of people in the community.” Peschong, a career Republican Party strategist, has publicly defended the integrity of local elections in the past. He reiterated that position to New Times and said that neither the Clementses’ presentation nor the burgeoning local movement in his party to challenge elections has changed that view. “The question is, what’s the proof?” Peschong said. “These are concerned citizens and they have every right to voice their opinions. When they speak, I look for evidence. I want them to present evidence there’s been voter fraud committed, and so far, I haven’t seen any evidence presented.” Δ —Peter Johnson

overtime, double time compensation, and rest and meal periods in exchange for work like cutting and selling firewood, growing pumpkins, and selling Christmas trees. “Labor Code 512 requires California employers to give unpaid lunch breaks to nonexempt employees. Under California Labor Code Section 201, employers generally must pay a discharged employee earned and unpaid wages immediately upon the employee’s termination. The key word is ‘employee’ and at no point in the complaint do plaintiffs allege sufficient facts to support the allegation that they were employees,” the objection stated. The Sunny Acres ranch and the addiction-

recovery nonprofit it hosts hold a controversial space in San Luis Obispo County lore. The property is now caught between DeVaul and his supporters, the residents who live on-site and manage the sobriety program, and county officials who have been eyeing numerous code violations that occurred on DeVaul’s watch. According to supporting documents attached to DeVaul’s objection, the founder now lives away from Sunny Acres recovering from COVID-19. An individual named Cherisse Sweeney now allegedly has the power of attorney after she began assisting DeVaul with debris removal this April in response to the county’s code violation NEWS continued page 5

notices. Sweeney declared in a statement that she met one of the lawsuit’s plaintiffs on her frequent visits to the Sunny Acres property, and he eventually told her he wished to drop out of the labor lawsuit. “Mark [Wilson] was recently terminated from the Sunny Acres program and had nowhere else to go. Dan, as he typically has done in the past with people struggling with sobriety, let Mark stay on the property rent-free. As of the date of this declaration, Mark is currently residing in Dan’s room in the barn while Dan is away recovering from COVID-19,” Sweeney’s declaration read. “During my discussions with Mark, he indicated that he was confused about the current lawsuit, was pressured into joining it, and that he no longer wished to be involved.” At the Sunny Acres property, program participants are feeling pressure from the litigation, the prospect of a courtappointed receiver overseeing the notices of violation, and even a potential sale of the land. “We’re continuing on with it day to day and waiting to see what happens with the sale,” Joseph Kurtzman, the peer services manager, told New Times. “We haven’t been included in discussions on what developers would do after purchasing the property, which is a bit unnerving. It’s been over a year since the NOV [notices of violation], and the uncertainty has been stressful.” —Bulbul Rajagopal

Paso school board waits to change language protecting LGBTQ-plus students

“Hit, punched, shoved, kicked.” All were forms of assault that LGBTQplus youth reported they’d experienced, according the California Healthy Kids Survey. About 63 percent of gay/lesbian/ bisexual students in SLO County reported being bullied and/or harassed in 2021-22. In addition, almost 50 percent said they’d “seriously considered suicide,” Dusty Colyer-Worth told the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District board on Aug. 9. “I am one of those youth at one point in time,” said the new executive director of the Gala Pride and Diversity Center, who graduated from Paso Robles High School in 1997. “I don’t want to be back here 25 years from now having to share these numbers again.” He spoke during a hearing on proposed changes to the district’s administrative regulation on harassment and discrimination, which he characterized as stripping the language protecting intersex, nonbinary, transgender, and gender-nonconforming students back to the “bare minimum.” “Bare minimum of the law … may seem sufficient for those who have never had to defend their right to exist in a space,” Colyer-Worth said. “There’s no excuse for you not to be innovative, not to be continuously seeking improvement, and be explicit in your support of our LGBTQI-plus youth and the treatment

they deserve and should be respected.” Before the hearing started, District Superintendent Curt Dubost said much of the language included in the regulation was approved in 2020, with an update made in March 2022 based on recommendations from the California School Boards Association. That version of the regulation “immediately caused controversy,” he said, based on its inclusion of greater detail for protections of LGBTQ-plus students than it did for other classes of students. Due to those concerns, he said the district “needed the assistance of legal counsel to determine what was mandated” in order to comply with state law. “The revision tonight takes much of the specific protections for LGBTQ out of [the administrative regulation]. This doesn’t not mean that protection does not still apply,” Dubost said. “Laws are evolving on these topics. … Several attorneys contributed to the final draft, which attempts to strike the balance which we seek.” The proposal removes a section in the regulation titled “Issues unique to intersex, nonbinary, transgender, and gender-nonconforming students.” The section comprised definitions of terms such as “gender transition,” “gender identity of a student,” and “intersex student”; listed examples of prohibited conduct that could be considered gender-based harassment; described what constitutes a student’s right to privacy; and detailed how the district would support a student’s gender identity and transition.

Almost all of the public comment during the meeting focused on what the school district needed to do to protect students. But they diverged on what that meant. Although teachers and members of the LGBTQ-plus community spoke about ensuring that LGBTQ-plus students felt safe in school, several parents said they were concerned about bathroom use, locker rooms, athletic teams, and girls “changing in front of a boy.” Republican Party of San Luis Obispo Chair Randall Jordan said he was glad to see that the district was offering gender-neutral or single-use restrooms or changing areas. But, he added that the very next sentence in the administrative regulation states that the district wouldn’t require a student to use those options. “If you feel like you’re a different gender, then you can do pretty much whatever you want,” Jordan said. “It doesn’t work. You can’t give someone privacy and then take it away, which is what you’re doing. … The proposed regulation should be revised.” Many speakers who thought the district should leave the regulation as it stood said they felt like the district had changed directions after promising the LGBTQplus community that it would take steps to ensure that incidents such as what happened last year—when students tore down a Pride flag from a classroom at the high school and filmed themselves defecating on it—wouldn’t happen in the future.

“In the wake of that hateful action, our district had to confront the reality that many LGBTQ students feel unsafe and unprotected in our district,” high school teacher Geoffrey Land said, adding that the high school was making progress in the right direction. “My concerns are really for the students in my classes and in district schools that are feeling unprotected and at risk. … These actions are overdue, we’re making progress, and I fear that tonight, we might be thrown off course.” School board members voted unanimously to table the proposal, saying the issue warranted further discussion and alluding to potentially having a study session in the near future. Dubost responded to the concerns expressed about the district’s forward movement, post Pride flag-incident. “In no way, shape, or form am I or the district shirking from the commitment that we made to those wonderful kids who had the grace to forgive me for the mistakes I made in my initial handling of it, and my commitment to those kids is unwavering. But I’m also responsible for all the other kids in the school,” he said. “We have to determine exactly what the law is and be fair to everybody.” —Camillia Lanham

Pismo Beach extends moratorium on new short-term rental permits

Pismo Beach’s hold on issuing short-

term rental permits to new applicants received a longer shelf life and more scathing criticism from community members. At its Aug. 2 meeting, City Council members unanimously voted to extend the moratorium issued in June by more than 10 months. City staff recommended the move in order to buy more time to research additional penalty methods against an increasing number of noncompliant short-term rental owners. But not everyone was pleased with the length of the moratorium. Councilmember Sheila Blake wondered why it would take so long to figure out stricter rules. “I think probably we were very naïve in assuming that we would pass an ordinance and people would actually follow the rules. Part of the thing that we had to put this into action is that people were abusing the vacation rentals and all the other classifications we’ve made with people wanting to rent out their bedroom, garage,” Blake said at the meeting. “What are the stages in compliance when people flout all the rules and are saying, ‘Nah I’m not gonna pay anything, just pay me, and we are in business?’ How do we regulate these things properly?” City Community Development Director Matt Downing informed her that staff needed more time because they were busy working on Pismo Beach’s General Plan/ Local Coastal Plan update. City Attorney David Fleishman added that regulations could be enforced through simple fines, revoking permits, and moving noncompliant cases to civil court.

The new Establishment

PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

As SLO’s iconic 19-bedroom home goes up for sale, residents wonder, will The Establishment have a third act?

BIG HOUSE A small group of “super stabbies” and community supporters are currently in escrow (as of press time) to purchase The Establishment, fix it up, and maintain its status as a hub of creativity, growth, and affordability.

BY KYLIE MENDONCA Writer’s note: I’m not remotely unbiased about The Establishment. As a journalist, I have to disclose that I lived there off and on between around 2006 and 2015. Some of the people quoted in this story are my friends. As a former housemate, I’m emotionally, though not financially, invested in the house’s continuation.

O

n a cool Saturday evening in July, a man in black lingerie repelled down the side of a two-story house, clinging to an emergency fire ladder as he stripped, sexy-danced to music, and mugged for a cheering audience in the yard below. Talent shows at The Establishment, a historical 19-bedroom home in the Railroad District of San Luis Obispo, rarely involve such talent. Indeed, the few children present were more impressed by the “History of The Establishment” told by sock puppets, a more typical talent show offering. The occasion for this spectacle was a reunion. Former residents from the past 50 or more years were invited back to the house to reminisce and rekindle friendships. The reunion was all the more poignant, as members of The Estab tribe feared this reunion could be the last. For decades, The Establishment has been a refuge for students, creatives, outcasts, professionals, or anyone seeking an affordable alternative living situation in SLO. It’s been an incubator for local businesses, nonprofits, and cultural movements within the city. For the hundreds of people who called it home, it’s been a catalyst for personal transformation and the source of lifelong friendships. In early 2022, The Establishment’s longtime owners, headed by matriarch

Sara McEre, announced they were selling the house. Residents fretted about the future. Would they be evicted? Would the rent go up? Would the house be demolished and replaced with upscale condos? Would the community survive? McEre’s family alerted the broader Establishment community of their desire to sell before publicly listing the property, in case, by some miracle, the housemates could cobble together enough money to buy it. Current housemates, aka “stabbies,” and former housemates, aka “super stabbies,” sprang into action. Within days of the announcement, Cal Poly professor, super stabbie, and former Establishment manager Jenn Yost was raising money and trying to set up dinner with other former housemates to discuss a group purchase. “I consider the loss of that house a huge loss for the whole world, and I’d like to

HEAD OF HOUSE Sara McEre is the longtime owner of The Establishment. With McEre at the helm, the house developed a unique culture of fun, acceptance, and experimentation. In 2022, McEre and her family decided to sell the house. 8 • New Times • August 11 - August 18, 2022 • www.newtimesslo.com

spend my time now trying to save it,” Yost said in a Feb. 10 email. By May 9, according to zillow.com, the house was listed for $2.2 million. No deal had been reached between owners and housemates. Soon, potential investors were stopping by to view the property, creating a sense of unease for many housemates. Emily “Willy” Wilson, current house manager, said what housemates feared was “a total shift in the function of this structure.” “At first,” Wilson said, “it was like this is definitely going to be turned into a boutique hotel. And those fears evolved as more people came to see the house, but it all centered around what this house will become.” In May, one housemate, named “Mars,” wrote in her farewell email to the group that The Establishment was the first house in which she ever felt “truly safe.” “The feelings of security have been uprooted,” she continued. “I’m no longer able to tune out the reality of the house being sold and the resulting feelings of powerlessness. This situation is dysregulating for all of our nervous systems—secure shelter is one of our most basic needs.” At its most basic, the house is a giant 120-year-old rectangle with 19 bedrooms. They line two hallways; one upstairs, and one downstairs, connected by a set of curved stairs that one former housemate called “mezcal-soaked,” as they were frequently used for impromptu “stair parties” in her era. The house has few common spaces: There’s a community kitchen and a common living room or “den.” There are four themed bathrooms— the longest running theme being the Steve Irwin Memorial Bathroom—which are shared by 19 housemates. There’s a yard with a wisteria-covered porch, a seating nook, and a shared garden. That’s it. The house’s influence is impossible to quantify, and in the spring of 2022, it felt acutely threatened.

VISIONARIES AND THE NEW ‘ESTABLISHMENT’

Before The Establishment was The Establishment, it was one of SLO’s many flophouses during the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1950s it was a functional boarding house called the Colonial Hotel or Hotel Colonial, and Jack Kerouack lived there around 1953. By 1964, however, the house was in disrepair—and bankruptcy, according to county documents. There were holes in the floors, made by years of wear from old metal bed wheels. The house already leaned heavily, since the foundation was damaged in the 1920s. Former SLO County Supervisor Kurt Kupper moved into that house in 1968. He described a no-rules proto-Establishment with two radical architecture professors at the helm. Harvey Koehnen and R.L. Graves purchased the house in 1964. Graves, who served as a SLO City Council member, according to his Cal Poly obituary, initiated the downtown tree planting program and improved pedestrian access downtown. He was also an original Mardi Gras Krewe member. Koehnen was one of three faculty advisors overseeing construction of the Shell House in Cal Poly’s architecture gardens the same year he purchased The Establishment house. Graves came up with the house name, according to Kupper. “It was supposed to be a declaration of the new establishment,” Kupper said, describing a culture that was remarkably similar to what exists today, only wilder. “I don’t think we had rules, particularly.” There were parties, pranks, casual sex, disastrous romances, and a strong sense of community. Just like today. There were 21 bedrooms then instead of 19, and the kitchen was half as big. Some rooms had double or triple occupancy (a practice rarely allowed in the modern Establishment) and one even had a great dane living in it.


A loose timeline of 1703 Santa Barbara Avenue

The house was most likely built in 1886 (city records vary). It was originally called the Call Hotel or possibly the Call Rooming House, named for the owners Silas and Nancy Call. Nancy Call was a notorious woman, who was convicted of owning a brothel in 1895, which was likely the Call Hotel. That same year, the house was loaded onto logs and moved with mules from the original location on Monterey Street to its current location. At that time, the name was changed to the “Chicago Hotel,” according to the listing on zillow.com Little is known about the house from 1904 until the 1940s. It was possibly called the Park View Hotel at that time. During the 1940s and 1950s, it became the Colonial Hotel or Hotel Colonial, an inexpensive rooming house that hosted Jack Kerouac in 1953. No one knows which room was his. By the mid 1960s the house was rundown and operating as a flophouse. In 1964 it was purchased by two architecture professors who gave the house its current attitude and name: The Establishment. Sara McEre purchased the house in 1977, and her family has owned it since. Early in 2022, McEre’s family decided to sell the iconic property.

at this split second, this guy looked at me as an authority figure. And I thought I have got to get out of here. … There can’t be any authority.”

WHAT’S AT STAKE?

KITCHEN CHAOS In one of the few shared spaces, 19 housemates share two stoves in one kitchen, which doubles as a hub for impromptu gatherings and late night philosophical discussions.

Most of the housemates were Cal Poly architecture students, and Kupper, who lived in a large room downstairs with his wife and two young kids, was older than most. “It was a home for us,” Kupper said. “I couldn’t have afforded to live in SLO otherwise. It allowed me to feed my family and go to school. And it was a fun place for my little boys. They were adopted by the house.” Kupper said the house was “very experimental.” One housemate, he recalled, built a giant sphere inside their room. Graves and Koehnen installed the first lofts, just big enough for a full or queen bed in most of the rooms. Those lofts still exist. Kupper knew it was time to move out when his 3-year-old knew how to use a cigarette lighter. Housemates had taught the boy to say “light my fire,” Kupper recalled, laughing. The modern Establishment is the creation of Sara McEre, a self-professed “architecture junkie” who was unable to attend architecture school in the 1940s, she said, because she’s a woman. I met McEre when I was working as a not-very-good waitress at Louisa’s Place, probably 15 years ago. Early one morning, she took a seat at the bar near the back of the restaurant and unloaded a pile of hardcover art and architecture books, newly purchased from a yard sale. A striking woman with messy gray hair and a knotted bandana keeping it at bay, McEre had a slight build and was wearing a loose chambray oxford with rolled sleeves. She ordered coffee, poached eggs, and salsa. I’m not some breakfast waitress savant, and I don’t remember anyone else’s order from 15 years ago, except for a group of cantankerous old guys who only ordered coffee daily, 15 minutes before the restaurant was even open, and a guy nicknamed “Dog Bite,” who always ordered milk. But McEre stood out to me. With help from her parents, McEre bought The Establishment in 1977. She was reeling from the unexpected death

of her son, Dan. At only 19 years old, he had died from Crohn’s disease that year. McEre was devastated, but when she saw an ad in the paper for a “21-bedroom fixerupper,” she saw an opportunity to channel that grief into something new. “That’s why my parents came up with the money,” McEre said. “They didn’t want to come up with the money, but they did. They took out a loan. It was out of kindness.” McEre moved into the house part time and hired tradesmen to fix the place up. She added more lofts to rooms, repainted, tried to rehab the old double-hung windows, and restored the wood finishes. Then she started filling the house with people. Richard Goldsmith moved in during the summer of 1978. He called that era the “Wild West” because there were no rules, no chores, and there wasn’t any cultural cohesion. “The place was really spiffy when I moved in,” Goldsmith said. “There was new carpet. The woodworking and the [handmade wood] mailboxes were just beautiful. It was all integrated, and every edge was rounded. Sara had painted all the rooms in neutrals. It wasn’t nearly as eclectic as it is now. It looked very sharp and clean. … Nothing was leaking at that point, or rotting at that point.” After the major repairs were complete, McEre, as a landlord, had a light touch, according to several former managers. Her approach was to let the house culture develop organically. By 1980, the community was starting to take shape. House manager Cecelia Lobdill, nee Ceraceras, created the “chore wheel,” signaling the end of the Wild West era and the coming of civilization. “After a while,” McEre said, “they were running it really well.” In 1980 or 1981, the house had its first big themed Halloween party. Residents, many of whom were architecture students, decorated the outside of the house as a giant Winnebago. There was a bumper on the front of the house, and windows became headlights. Giant wheels and a “W” were added to the side of the

house. From there, parties and themes became more elaborate. The house has been a Greek temple, a BDSM playground, a post-apocalyptic hellscape, and a Suessian storybook, among dozens of other themes. Year after year, housemates stapled black plastic to the walls, turned stairs into slides, installed dance poles, and partied until the cops were called. McEre rarely intervened. She’s been known to stop by the house with a bottle of wine and hang out in the den or the backyard. She’s a nonagenarian not out of place among housemates 70 years her junior, utterly unfazed by changing social norms. For McEre, the secret to hanging on to the community she loves has been to let go of control. “I used to hang out with the people in The Establishment,” McEre said of her time living in the house. “Then one night,

The house is no longer polished in the ways Goldsmith remembered. But the rent has remained “affordable” by SLO standards. Many super stabbies would point to that affordability as a key driver of the house’s culture and impact on the broader community. Mark “Gizmo” Grayson moved into the house in 2015, but he has been closely associated with The Establishment for more than 20 years. Among other things, Grayson is the creator of the Bike Happening, a monthly party on wheels in downtown SLO. He said stabbies were among the first cyclists to join the party and brought early momentum to the event. “A lot of creative people in the community have to spend all their time making money to make rent,” Grayson said. “But if the rent is affordable, it frees you from the drudgery and allows you to make art.” Grayson pointed out that many stabbies work in the nonprofit sector, or do volunteer work in the community, because they can afford to. One nonprofit, the Bike Kitchen, sprang directly from The Establishment. Around 2008, three stabbies bought some tools and a bike trailer, rented some storage space, and started fixing THE ESTABLISHMENT continued page 10 PHOTO COURTESY OF KURT KUPPER

Poop Log: a written history in poo haiku, captain’s logs, and bodily mishaps This is a selection of Poop Log entries curated by current house manager Emily “Willy” Wilson. The poop log is a diary kept near the toilet in which people are free to express themselves on all topics, but mostly topics related to poop. The first Poop Log was created by Jenn Yost, circa 2005. Q: If you could poop at any location in the world, where would it be? A1: in the egyptian pyramids A2: in the white house (president’s bathroom) A3: in the president’s bed A4: under the eiffel tower I used to think my dad was Elvis. I haven’t told him that yet. I haven’t told my dad either. Q: If you could implement any (new) house rule, what would it be? A1: 4 hugs a day (that’s the minimum) A2: Weekly group rides A3: Mandatory Tiger King viewing nights A4: Conversational Consent A5: No farting in the kitchen A6: Eat my ass gently

MAILBOXES Custom mailboxes appeared around 1978. Along with chore charts, the “sponge code,” and the analog communication device known as the chalkboard, “stabbies” keep the house running. THE ESTABLISHMENT from page 9

bikes for free. Brant Haflich, then a 20-year-old Cal Poly student and former Establishment manager, had the idea to start Bike Kitchen, but the community support and networking centered in The Establishment gave the idea wheels. Grayson, for example, helped get the first storage space. Former house manager Dan Kallal and others in the Tall Bike Posse gave the Bike Kitchen its first physical space (in an actual kitchen) during their bike month art show. When the Bike Kitchen was a bimonthly guerilla event happening at Mitchell Park, housemates would show up every other weekend to teach bike maintenance skills, to move tools by bike, or just grill hot dogs and hang out. Housing economist Skylar Olsen agreed with Grayson’s evaluation that lower rent enables people to be more creative. Stable housing, she said, is a basic need that must be met before people can access their creative potential. Olsen moved into The Establishment around 2007, as a slampoetry-reading undergrad with an uncanny gift for explaining economic concepts. Today, Olsen is chief economist for Zillow Group. Affordability, she said, is only half the story. “I think there are probably two aspects,” Olsen said of the house’s impact. “There’s affordability, and there’s this incredible networking effect when you have 19 people working together.” The Bike Kitchen now has a permanent home in a city-owned building, paid staff, and the same mission: To get more people on bikes and teach bike maintenance skills. Other notable projects to come out of The Establishment include organic bakery Bread Bike and the Tierra Nueva cohousing development in Oceano, which was founded by Lobdill and three other former Establishment housemates. As a cultural institution, The Establishment connects housemates to other cultural institutions too. If, for example, one housemate works for the county elections office, then the whole house is more aware of local political events and more likely to engage. If one housemate works at a music venue, housemates are more likely to see live music. “I think something that’s super special about the house,” current house manager Wilson said, “is the ability to connect with people from different generations of the house.

You already have some common ground.” What many former housemates pointed to as the house’s greatest value, however, was the personal growth they and others experienced. “I think a lot of people were born there,” Olsen said of The Establishment. “Not really, but metaphorically. One thing I learned there was that life offers you an incredible range of expression and options. You don’t always know that, and The Establishment is the place I learned that. “It turns out that the cost of expressing yourself is very low,” Olsen continued. “What is the cost of being embarrassed? The only way to get over being embarrassed is to practice. At The Establishment, you get to practice being whatever you want to be because everyone else is practicing too.”

THE MORE THINGS CHANGE, THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME

Housemates going all the way back to the ’70s spoke about The Establishment in the same terms: They laughed about old conflicts, they laughed about the ways in which the house infrastructure failed, especially the plumbing—former manager Kallal recalled a recurring “poop lagoon” in the yard—and they talked about what it was like to intentionally share space with other people. “There’s cultural things,” current house manager Wilson explained. “I wouldn’t call them rules, but there are cultural expectations. One of them is just being willing to engage with other people on more than a superficial level.” For super stabbies, this engagement is what stands out in the rear-view mirror. It’s not the big, themed house dinners that happen periodically, but the impromptu dinners that happened when two people bumped into each other in the kitchen. “When you share refrigerator space with someone,” Lobdill said, “you realize that they like the same food, and you just start cooking meals together.” Another side effect of living in an old house with a lot of younger people is that sex becomes an almost public act. It’s practically a right of passage for new housemates to emerge in the kitchen at breakfast time and excitedly ask, “Did anyone feel that earthquake last night?” Shared bathrooms, shared bedroom

Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? A: 2025. I live with my partner on a chunk of quiet and lovely land along with 3-6 other households. The COVID vaccine was successful but it gave some recipients the ability to attract stray cats. Bob, next door, can’t help but be a beacon for SLO’s strays and we have to tell him it isn’t working out. There are just too many cats and they have poor boundaries. Last night one of them called me “sweet cheeks.” I won’t put up with this harassment.

walls, and shared meals tend to erode the stigma around bodily functions. Maybe it’s a defense mechanism, or a response to the ancient plumbing, but poop humor springs eternal at The Establishment. Since around 2005, the house has kept a “poop log” or “diarya” in the bathroom to record any bathroom musings. So, there it is. The humans at the Establishment eat food, they poop, and they have sex. They also throw great parties. “If there was a timeline of the house,” super stabbie Goldsmith said, “it would go in waves—up and down. It’s like people are sort of in a play prescribed by the house. The names change, but the script stays the same. … There’s someone playing you right now. It’s sort of like Groundhog Day. It undulates, but the high points sort of look the same.”

THE THIRD ACT

Early in the process to save The Establishment, former house manager Yost emerged as the de facto group leader. She organized countless meetings with

former housemates to raise money and researched different legal structures for co-ownership. In about two months, former housemates were able to pool together $1.6 million in pledges from approximately 60 people, according to Yost. They made an all-cash offer that was below the asking price, and McEre’s family did not accept it. The group looked for other solutions, but their optimism waned. With the $1.6 million, stabbies could, in theory, buy a different house in SLO and create a new community, just as former housemates had done before with Tierra Nueva, but the idea never took off. “I think there’s some magic in the building itself,” Yost said. “Not actual magic, but it’s in the layout of the building. The size of the rooms—you can have private space, but they’re small enough that you have to come out. … There are no hidden spaces, so the building promotes interaction. The den is just big enough to have an awesome party, but not too big. “And I think people also feel differently when they’re in a building with some history. You can see the wood floor and think wow, that floor is 100 years old.” In July, McEre’s family accepted an offer from a smaller group, composed of former housemates and Establishment supporters, including Yost. As of press time, the house was in a 30-day escrow period. “I think so many parts of this whole thing have just been so painfully awkward,” current manager Wilson said of the sale. “But in the end, I’m stoked. I think this is a great scenario. We had this vision for something really radical, and it seems like that won’t happen. But this achieves the ultimate goal, which is to maintain the culture and function of The Establishment.” Yost said that fixing the house would be a priority for the group. It has some foundation problems and deferred maintenance. She said the electrical and plumbing systems need to be updated, and it needs a new roof. Plus, the old windows— the original double-hung windows—are a constant source of frustration. “I love The Establishment,” Yost said. “The culture, the community, but I also love the building, and it’s very sad to me how it’s deteriorated. I’m excited to usher in a new era, much like Sara McEre must have felt in the ’70s. “I am just really excited that it’s going to continue to exist.” ∆ Reach contributor Kylie Mendonca through the editor at clanham@ newtimesslo.com.

Opinion My life in Arroyo Grande is already the winning ticket

I

recently bought several mega million lotto tickets. I rarely buy them but with the jackpot at $1.2 billion, I was ready to win. I allowed myself to envision my response upon hearing I was the winner. I imagined taking a deep breath, calling my dearest friends for emotional support, and then logically figuring out how to claim the prize. Then I imagined how to spend the money! I’d lovingly support my family, friends, church, and community. I thought about what I would buy for myself. A new home? But I loved my mobile home. A new car? Well, my car could use new tires and a bit of touchup paint but I was perfectly happy with my 14-year-old hybrid. I imagined how I could invest some of the money to cover any future expenses, but I knew the majority I would give away. On the evening of the drawing, I purposefully didn’t look at my tickets. I

Poor judgement by New Times judges in 55 Fiction

Out of “hundreds of entries” for the 55 Fiction contest, 27 short stories were printed in the New Times on July 28. Five authors had two or more stories printed (one author had three stories printed). Next time, judges, just one win per author please. Spread the accolades around a bit. Lisa Schott San Luis Obispo

Statements made about Diablo Canyon and PG&E are just assumptions

wanted to fall asleep envisioning a world where I supported kind, loving people and positive causes. I had sweet dreams. The next morning, while having my coffee, the radio announced that the winning ticket was purchased in Illinois. For a second I actually was shocked that they didn’t say my state. After all the winning ticket must still be in my wallet, right? After taking in reality, I laughed and realized I have everything I need: the love of family, friends, and pets; my health; my home in a supportive community; my healthy old car; and enough money to provide for my basic needs. I look out the window as the sun peeks through the morning fog. My 17-year-old dog snores at my side. I grin and realize I truly have won. Ethel Landers Arroyo Grande

Go to YouTube and find the Diablo Canyon Dry Storage Project to see for yourself how fuel is removed from the pools and transferred to dry storage. Statements such as the one printed in the local press need to be researched for truth, otherwise people believe something like the statement “hot mess,” which is meant to frighten.

Please give Oceano a break from off-roaders, campers, and visitors

Long-term and affordable residential rentals are being eradicated from our county, especially from the coastal zone. We must preserve those we still have. Oceano has a few left on Pier Avenue. However, their tenants are being disproportionately impacted by State Parks’ visitors. Tenants must suffer beach visitors in need of parking unlawfully using their private parking spaces or blocking their driveway and mailboxes. The most obnoxious and aggressive are State Parks’ patrons, beach drivers, and campers stopping on their way to the beach to deflate their tires and on their way back to inflate them. Many of them are not friendly to locals, especially those who complain about their presence. Friends of Oceano Dunes, a lobbying organization for beach driving and off-roading, has been under investigation for illegal fundraising. In a recent public statement, their president called those locals the “Enemy.” Many of us have already been threatened and harassed. To worsen things, State Parks is closing the beach entrance at Grand Avenue for two months in the middle of summer. More than a thousand vehicles a day will crowd Pier Avenue, the only access to the beach. We do not oppose this construction project. We want State Parks to reduce the number of vehicles allowed onto the beach through Oceano by at least half during this construction period. The Oceano beach community is being overburdened and submerged. Please give us a break! Lucia Casalinuovo Oceano

The Shredder

Delusional W

hat’s it going to take for 5th District SLO County Supervisor Debbie Arnold and her ilk to admit that Trump lost the 2020 election and that SLO County elections are run fairly and accurately? Will anything? Arnold willingly submerges herself in the swampy, gaseous world of unproven conspiracies and misinformation, which was on full display in Atascadero on July 23, when 4 The Republic hosted “Exposing Election Fraud,” a presentation by David Clements and his wife, Erin Clements, founders of New Mexico Audit Force, who claim to have uncovered overwhelming evidence of voter fraud and a stolen presidential election. They haven’t. I missed the live event, but thankfully, local Trump-thumpers 4therepublic.org posted the nearly three-hour celebration of Trump Delusional Syndrome on Aug. 4, so if you want to get a gander at the depth and desperation of the unhinged right, tickle your fingers across the keyboard and find it. The opening frame is red, white, and blue jingo-tastic—“4 God, 4 Truth, 4 Liberty, 4 Constitution”—and in the upper right hand corner, Proverbs 11:11. I looked it up for you: “By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown.” Hm. Are liberals—who gave us Social Security and Medicare, clean air and water laws, public education, worker safety laws, child labor laws, and all the other

stuff that makes people’s lives better— the wicked or the upright? I’m confused. A lady in a spiffy off-white outfit (Maria Smith of 4 The Republic? Maybe? She didn’t introduce herself) addressed the gathering. “Debbie Arnold is in the house. Debbie Arnold is one of the lone voices on the Board of Supervisors that is truly fighting for election integrity, so thank you, Debbie. And John Peschong is here. Sorry! John Peschong from District 1.” Technically, Peschong wasn’t “here.” He was invited but didn’t attend, though he joined by Zoom. After cajoling a kid into leading those assembled in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and then scolding the kid for not saying “amen,” she introduced David Clements, a law professor suspended and later fired by New Mexico State University for rejecting the university’s mask and vaccine mandates. “When they witnessed the nonsensical results of the 2020 election, they felt called to find out what happened,” said Lady in White who’s maybe Maria Smith. (Hand raised!) “Oo, oo! I know what happened! Pick me! Their candidate lost, and they’re so delusional they actually believe, deep in their two-sizes too small hearts, that the majority of Americans think like they do, so there was no way, no way in hell, Trump lost … except the

majority of Americans don’t think like they’re slow-basting themselves in a stew conservatives and didn’t vote for Trump of misinformation perpetuated by the in 2020, and he lost fair and square, but likes of White Lady, the Clementses, and now the Clementses have committed their organizations like 4 The Republic and lives to spreading conspiracy theories and the San Luis Obispo County Citizens traveling the country preying on other Action Team (Made up of the same delusional Americans because … ‘Thanks people?) that’s raising money to continue the for your prayers and donations, suckers!’” local recount, which so far has shown zero According to—I’ll just call her White fraud and zero counting errors. Zero. Lady—some of Clements’ fraud claims Worst of all, this delusional bullshit is include that “the tabulation machines are sadly swallowed hook, line, and sinker by more than just vote counters but have the our own elected official Debbie Arnold. capability of printing ballots and even Really, Debbie? marking up ballots as if humans did so.” “You’ve given us confidence,” Arnold (Insert widened, incredulous eyes.) gushed at the presentation. “We made a Another Clements “gotcha” argument is run at this before and we were shot down that vote counting “mysteriously stopped” on publicly.” election day at 10:30 p.m. and didn’t resume Yeah, because you’re wrong and the until the following morning.

She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College in 1999 and her Master of Fine Arts degree from the New York Academy of Art in 2001. In 2006, Monks completed an artist in residency program at Fullerton College. Since then, she has lectured and taught at universities and other institutions around the world.

Twists and turns Former Cal Poly professor Al Landwehr’s new mystery novel is a helluva ride

etired 45-year-old English professor Michael Drayton isn’t a detective. He’s just a guy who loves and restores Italian sports cars, so when he hears about an Alfa Romeo abandoned in the nearby woods, he goes in search of it. When he finally locates it, he gets much more than an old car—he discovers a cold missing-persons case, a possible new love interest, a rekindling of a long-estranged friendship, and a late night threatening phone call telling him to back off. So begins What’s Left to Learn, a thoroughly engaging and propulsive page-turner of novel with an amazing sense of place and time in every scene—little details and asides creating a rich world with a sun-drenched neo-noir vibe where Santa Ana winds blow through the alltoo-brief eight days of the story. Written by retired Cal Poly creative writing professor Al Landwehr, 86, the novel pulls off the neat trick of creating a believable everyman protagonist who through happenstance stumbles upon a long-unsolved mystery revolving around an eccentric and talented artist—a local lothario whose freewheeling lifestyle was the bane of the community’s more conservative members, a man who nearly 20 years earlier simply vanished. Landwehr, an oft-published writer of short stories, started teaching at Cal Poly in 1970 and started a campus-wide creative writing contest in spring of 1971 that continues to this day. He was awarded the Distinguished Teaching Award in 1997, and after 43 years at the university, he retired in 2013. He estimates he taught at least 10,000 students over his career. (Full disclosure, I was one of them. I also played tennis with Al and hung around his auto shop where he restored old Italian sports cars, like a Fiat X1/9 that his protagonist Michael Drayton drives.) “As you know, writers are always told to write about things they know,” Landwehr said. “And yes, he’s somewhat like me. I was an English professor but didn’t leave early, and I was never accused of sexual harassment. Michael Drayton is a borrowed name from a Renaissance poet, and his most famous sonnet, ‘Since There’s No Help ...’ was probably linked to some of my protagonist’s characteristics. I played it fast and loose with the literary allusions. “Michael Drayton and I both played tennis although he quit sooner than I, and cars, yes, Michael Drayton and I have restored Italian cars—namely an Alfa Romeo Spider and a Fiat X1/9 with a removable top, and I do know a road like the one Ellie and Michael drive that fateful night. “I was as surprised as you about the twists and turns of the plot,” he continued. “I lost a little sleep worrying if something didn’t fit.”

Super-duper Editor’s note: Glen Starkey stepped aside this week so that 8-year-old Acacia Newman of Cayucos could bring a kid’s perspective to this animated family film in this Split Screen review with Anna Starkey.

C

o-directors Jared Stern and Sam Levine helm this script by Stern and co-writer John Whittington about inseparable best friends Krypto the SuperDog (Dwayne Johnson) and Superman (John Krasinski), who fight crime side-byside in Metropolis … until the unthinkable happens and Superman is kidnapped, forcing Krypto to master his own powers if he hopes to rescue his best friend. (106 min.)

Anna We meet quite a cast of characters in DC League of Super-Pets. Krypto the Super-Dog is the star of the show, but he’s soon joined by a cast of characters who are newly endowed with powers of their own. There’s Ace (Kevin Hart), a dog given super strength; PB the pig (Vanessa Bayer), who can shrink and grow in size; Merton (Natasha Lyonne), the super speedy turtle; and Chip (Diego Luna), an adorable squirrel who can conjure lightning. When Krypto loses his superpowers, this band of misfits team up with him to save Superman and stop the evil Lulu (Kate McKinnon), a hairless guinea pig whose devotion to Lex Luthor (Marc Maron) and psychokinesis powers have her gunning to take over the world. There are a lot of great characters and superpowers in this movie. Do you have any favorites? Acacia I definitely like PB the pig the best out of all the super pets. She’s really funny and so obsessed with Wonder Woman. She even has duct tape rolls on her wrists like Wonder Woman’s bracelets. But for superpowers, I think I would probably want to have Lulu the guinea pig’s abilities. You wouldn’t have to use them for evil, you could use them to summon your cereal bowl or if you were lying in bed and thought, “Ooh, I want some chocolate,” you could make it come to you without having to get up.

That would be pretty cool. I also really liked the squirrel’s lightning hands. Anna Those powers would definitely come in handy! I thought that all of the voice actors did a great job—they definitely got a lot of funny people to take part in this movie. When things start to go awry, we see other superheroes like Batman (Keanu Reeves), Wonder Woman (Jameela Jamil), The Flash (John Early), Aquaman (Jemaine Clement), and The Green Lantern (Dascha Polanco) join in to try and defeat Luthor and Lulu. I’m not sure how familiar you are with the Superman movies or comics, but do you think the movie was easy enough to follow if someone didn’t know the backstory? Acacia I’ve seen the Superman movies, at least Superman I, II, III, & IV, so I know the characters. I do think they did a pretty good job of explaining who everyone is though. You could tell right away who the good guys are and that Lex Luthor wasn’t one. I thought all the

The central character is codename Ladybug (Brad Pitt), a “snatch and grab” operative hired to steal a briefcase, complicated by all the killers in his midst. The ensemble comedy action flick is a kinetic free-for-all, and it’s easy at first to dismiss it as mindless violence, but at its heart is Ladybug trying to be a better person. He thinks he’s plagued by bad luck, but as the story progresses, he begins to contemplate whether his misfortunes are fate at work with a grand design awaiting him. You kind of want to take him aside and tell him, “Dude, ‘shit happens’ is the only philosophy that makes sense in your world.” There are twists and turns, lots of

voice acting was good, too. I really liked the actress who was PB, and the one who voiced Lulu was also really funny. Anna This movie is rated PG. I noticed there were a couple of times where they had bleeped out curse words and there were a couple of moments that may be a little scary for younger kids. What do you think is a good age range for this movie? Acacia I think that a little younger than my age, maybe like 6 or older, would probably like it and wouldn’t be too scared. It depends on the kid and what kind of movies they’ve watched before. The bleep-outs were pretty funny though because it was when the turtle ran super fast and ended up somewhere and was like, “Where the bleep am I?” Anna That definitely made me laugh. The end of the movie kind of surprised me; how about you? Acacia I was kind of surprised at first, but then I realized they needed a way to bring all the super pets back together, so I knew there had to be something else that happened. I did like that the super pets got paired up with superheroes at the end, and they all ended up happy. ∆

an Tractenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane ) directs this prequel to the Predator franchise that began with Predator (1987), followed by three sequels and two films in a crossover mashup, Alien vs. Predator. This film presents Predator’s origin story as it hunts in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, taking out wolves, bears, fur trappers, and Native Americans. Naru (Amber Midthunder), a skilled female hunter who dreams of being a warrior, is yet unproven. She wants to complete her right of passage by hunting a mountain lion, bear, or some other big predator that could easily kill her. Instead, she finds herself opposite an alien creature (Dane DiLiegro) who’s traveled to Earth to bag trophies like the skulls and spines of the creatures it hunts and kill. Is it unkillable, or is Naru clever enough to find a way? It’s a gripping story with an engaging protagonist. Naru is dismissed by the men and misunderstood by the women of her tribe, but she’s

Leaning into the past Thee Sacred Souls pay tribute to vintage soul and R&B

T

he ’60s and ’70s were the golden era of soul and R&B—Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, Ben E. King, Marvin Gaye, Percy Sledge, and many others changed the music scene and left an indelible stamp. Now their torch has been picked up by San Diego soul and R&B act Thee Sacred Souls, who make honeyed falsetto magic. The band includes singer Josh Lane, bassist Sal Samano, and drummer Alex Garcia, and they’ve garnered the attention of Billboard, Rolling Stone, and KCRW; and their first fans included Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas, and Timbaland. If you’re a fan of the aforementioned era, this is a must-see act! SLO Brew Live and (((folkYEAH!))) presents Thee Sacred Souls on Friday, Aug. 12 (7 p.m.; all ages; $25 presale at ticketweb.com), at SLO Brew Rock. Don’t forget SLO Brew Live and (((folkYEAH!))) also present amazing and legendary soul singer Lee Fields on Thursday, Aug. 11 (7 p.m.; all ages; $32 presale at ticketweb.com). Grateful Dead tribute act The Great North Special plays SLO Brew Rock on Saturday, Aug. 13 (7 p.m.; all ages; free). This jamming sextet mixes psych-rock, country-blues, and funk-soul originals, covers, and improvisations.

Hell-bent for leather

Formed in 2002 by students at the University of North Texas in Denton, The Eli Young Band—Mike Eli (lead vocals and guitar), James Young (guitar), Jon Jones (bass), and Chris Thompson (drums)—have gone on to chart No. 1 singles for “Crazy Girl,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” “Drunk Last Night,” and “Love Ain’t.”

DEEP GROOVES SLO Brew Live and (((folkYEAH!))) present ’60s and ’70s-style soul act Thee Sacred Souls on Aug. 12, at SLO Brew Rock.

Now touring in support of their sixth studio album, Love Talking, they play the Fremont on Friday, Aug. 12 (8 p.m.; all ages; $38 to $45 at seetickets.us). These guys have gone from regional success to national renown.

Folk heroes The Kingston Trio was a San Francisco nightclub act that suddenly found themselves at the forefront of a folk music revival in 1958 when they released their eponymous debut album containing the massive hit “Tom Dooley.” They’d go on to record “The Tijuana Jail,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “A Worried Man,” “Seasons in the Sun,” “Greenback Dollar,” and many more. Though the original three members are long gone, “all three current members— Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton, and Buddy Woodward—have intrinsic links to the original group,” explained concert organizer Erik Long. “Mike is the ‘adopted son’ of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor; Tim, a friend of John Stewart

since he was in his early 20s, is one of the few musicians outside The Kingston Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Buddy Woodward performed with longtime Kingston Trio member George Grove.” The Kingston Trio plays the Clark Center on Saturday, Aug. 13 (7:30 p.m.; $22 to $56 at clarkcenter.org).

Cheers to 40 years

Open bubbly like a pro Laetitia winemaker Eric Hickey says there are five steps to properly opening a bottle of sparkling wine: 1. Make sure your bottle is nice and chilled—to approximately 40 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. Have a serviette or kitchen towel handy to wipe any condensation from the bottle and to cover the cork for added security during opening. 3. Remove the foil and wired cage from the cork. 4. Grasp the bottle by the base and ensure the cork is pointing away from you and anyone else. 5. Gently twist the base of the bottle counterclockwise while holding the cork firm. When the cork pops, it should sound like a small hiss. On the rare occasion that the cork refuses to budge, run the neck of the bottle under hot running water for about 30 seconds. The heat will allow the glass to expand, and, in some cases, this is enough to loosen the cork to extract it. For safety, always keep your hand on the cork and ensure it’s pointed away from people.

Laetitia Vineyard & Winery’s Bubble Fest is a celebration of its French and Central Coast roots

I

f you’ve been gravitating toward sparkling wines lately, you’re not alone. Bubbly is the fastest growing wine subcategory among American consumers, according to research firms Statista and Nielsen. Sales grew by more than 13 percent in 2021, and are expected to grow annually by 12 percent through 2025. Consumers, especially in the United States, are increasingly grabbing sparkling wine for everyday imbibing, rather than shelving them for special occasions. They are also opting for California’s more affordable labels, rather than France’s storied Champagne brands. The state, which ranks fourth in worldwide wine production after Italy, France, and Spain, is giving their sparkling markets—prosecco, Champagne, and cava, respectively—a run for their money.

SACRED AND SUSTAINABLE Head winemaker Eric Hickey, right, and vineyard manager Scott Williams survey Laetitia’s 680-plus-acre vineyard—the crown jewel of its 1,986-acre estate in Arroyo Grande.

Sip sip hooray!

To purchase tickets to Laetitia’s Bubble Fest, slated for Aug. 20, from 2:30 to 5 p.m., visit laetitiawine.com. Find the winery at 453 Laetitia Vineyard Drive in Arroyo Grande, and on Instagram and Facebook @laetitiawine. The tasting room is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended.

More than 300 California wineries produce 12 million cases of bubbly annually, with a large contingent based in San Luis Obispo County. Of the area’s 70-plus producers, Laetitia Vineyard & Winery in Arroyo Grande enjoys storied status as one of the state’s sparkling trailblazers. “We were founded in 1982 by winemakers from Champagne, so for 40 years, we’ve always used the same centuries-old technique they use called méthode champenoise,” said Eric Hickey, Laetitia’s senior winemaker and general manager. “It’s a long and multi-year process, but it’s worth it.” Laetitia’s growth and reputation have paralleled Hickey’s ascension at the winery from a teenaged, part-time staffer to his current position overseeing the winery’s still and sparkling operations, which today produce 35,000 cases annually. “I began working in the cellar of Maison Deutz—Laetitia’s original name—in 1988, when I was just 16, alongside my father (Dave Hickey), who oversaw the sparkling wines,” Hickey said. After graduating high school, he joined the winery full time and never looked back. From vintage to vintage, he furthered his knowledge of méthode champenoise, while also taking time to explore the Rhône, Burgundy, and Bordeaux regions of France as well as participating in an extension program through U.C. Davis. Hickey explained that méthode

BRUT FORCE In addition to sparklers such as brut rosé, Laetitia produces estate chardonnay and pinot noir, as well as a second label, NADIA. Named for prior owner Selim Zilkha’s daughter, the Bordeaux-focused label sources a variety of grapes from Santa Barbara County.

champenoise boils down to two key phases—“the first fermentation, when we make basically still wine, and the second fermentation, which is done in the bottle and creates all the bubbles and toasty aromas and flavors. “After this second fermentation, dead yeast builds up,” he continued. “We rotate the bottles to isolate the yeast in the neck of the bottle. We then place that neck in an ice bath, then pop the bottle and— boom—out shoots the frozen ice plug that has all that old yeast in it. That process is called disgorging. “Because this process means we lose some wine, right after the ice plug pops, we sacrifice a few bottles and add some sparkling wine back into the bottle, along

with a few grams of sugar to balance out the acidity. “This addition is called dosage. Each winery/house has their own sugar/dosage program. But, to be clear, our wines are not sweet. Our wines are brut, which means dry.” The fruits of the wine team’s efforts will be showcased at Bubble Fest, held outdoors at the winery on Aug. 20. The event will feature paired bites from local chef Heidi Hornikel and music from SLObased band Moonshiner Collective. “I’ll be offering several tastings, one which will actually explore the levels of dosage,” Hickey said. “So, we’ll taste several dosage examples from bone-dry to what’s known as demi-sec, which is a low level of sweetness.” Hickey’s pours will be complemented by cuisine from Hornikel, co-owner of Flora and Fauna Fine Food in Arroyo Grande. “Heidi is one of the most talented chefs on the Central Coast, and she knows what we are always telling people—that sparkling wine is actually one of the best food-pairing wines around, and goes with a wide array of foods,” Hickey said. “I’m super excited to see what she and her team will be putting together.” FLAVOR continued page 30

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.

WHAT Hearing to consider a request by Jeffery Hevert and Dina Behar (Vinyl Vineyards LLC) for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2021- 00086) to allow the development of an approximately 6,411 square-foot (SF) winery facility that will include 4,838 SF of interior and 1,475 SF of exterior productions areas. The 810 SF tasting room would be located within the winery facility. The winery’s initial annual production is anticipated to be approximately 2,500 cases with a maximum of 5,000 cases. The project includes a request for up to 10 winery events annually (including nonprofits) with a maximum of 150 attendees. The project also includes a request for 10-camping- sites that will be located in two locations that is suitable for tent and recreational vehicles. The applicant is requesting a modification Section 22.30.520.A.5 of setback standards that requires a 1,000-foot setback to property lines to allow a 250-foot setback from the northern property line and a 326-foot setback from the eastern property line. The project would result in approximately 6.3 acres of site disturbance on a 120-acre parcel, including 5,794 cubic yards of cut and 5,494 cubic yards of fill. The subject property is within the El PomarEstrella Sub-area of the North County Planning Area.

WHAT Hearing to consider a request by Peoples’ Self-Help Housing Corporation (PSHH) to amend previously approved Condition of Approval (No. 15.c.4 and 5) of SUB2020-00080. The request is an adjustment to the County’s standard improvement specifications and drawings and Title 21 (Real Property Division Ordinance) to eliminate gas service to the subdivision, and to not be required to relocate overhead cable lines underground along the project frontage. The previously approved project is a Vesting Tentative Tract Map (Tract 3163) and concurrent Conditional Use Permit (SUB2020-00080) to subdivide an existing 1.68-acre parcel (APNs 090-095-015 and 090-095-006) into 10 lots ranging from 4,151 to 12,324 gross square-feet and the construction of 10 workforce housing single-family residences. The project is within the Commercial Retail land use category and is located at the intersection of West Branch Street and North Thompson Avenue in the community of Nipomo. The site is located in the South County Inland Sub-Area of the South County Planning Area.

Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on June 8, 2020 for this project.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Imagine what you will be doing exactly one year from today. Newsletter.freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Tips to get the most out of the coming weeks: 1. Exercise your willpower at random moments just to keep it limber. 2. Be adept at fulfilling your own hype. 3. Argue for fun. Be playful and frisky as you banter. Disagree for the sport of it, without feeling attached to being right or needing the last word. 4. Be unable to understand how anyone can resist you or not find you alluring. 5. Declare yourself President of Everything, then stage a coup d’état. 6. Smile often when you have no reason to. 7. If you come upon a “square peg, round hole” situation, change the shape of the hole.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran author Katherine Mansfield wrote, “The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, and a pool that nobody’s fathomed the depth of.” Be inspired by her in the coming weeks, Libra. I suspect you will flourish if you give yourself the luxury of exploring your untamed side. The time is ripe to wander in nature and commune with exciting influences outside your comfort zone. What uncharted frontier would you enjoy visiting?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If I had to choose a mythic deity to be your symbolic helper, I would pick Venus. The planet Venus is ruler of your sign, and the goddess Venus is the maven of beauty and love, which are key to your happiness. But I would also assign Hephaestus to you Tauruses. He was the Greek god of the metalworking forge. He created Zeus’s thunderbolts, Hermes’ winged helmet, Aphrodite’s magic bra, Achilles’ armor, Eros’ bow and arrows, and the thrones for all the deities in Olympus. The things he made were elegant and useful. I nominate him to be your spirit guide during the next 10 months. May he inspire you to be a generous source of practical beauty.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): To be a true Gemini, you must yearn for knowledge—whether it’s about coral reefs, ancient maps of Sumer, sex among jellyfish, mini-black holes, your friends’ secrets, or celebrity gossip. You need to be an eternal student who craves education. Are some things more important to learn than others? Of course, but that gauge is not always apparent in the present. A seemingly minor clue or trick you glean today may become unexpectedly helpful a month from now. With that perspective in mind, I encourage you to be promiscuous in your lust for new information and teachings in the coming weeks.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancerian drummer Ringo Starr is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Though he has received less acclaim than his fellow Beatles, many critics recognize him as a skillful and original drummer. How did he get started? At age 13, he contracted tuberculosis and lived in a sanatorium for two years. The medical staff encouraged him to join the hospital band, hoping it would stimulate his motor skills and alleviate boredom. Ringo used a makeshift mallet to bang the cabinet near his bed. Good practice! That’s how his misfortune led to his joy and success. Is there an equivalent story in your life, Cancerian? The coming months will be a good time to take that story to its next level.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): One of the inspiring experiments I hope you will attempt in the coming months is to work on loving another person as wildly and deeply and smartly as you love yourself. In urging you to try this exercise, I don’t mean to imply that I have a problem with you loving yourself wildly and deeply and smartly. I endorse your efforts to keep increasing the intensity and ingenuity with which you adore and care for yourself. But here’s a secret: Learning to summon a monumental passion for another soul may have the magic power of enhancing your love for yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Musician Viv Albertine has recorded four albums and played guitar for the Slits, a famous punk band. She has also written two books and worked as a TV director for 20 years. Her accomplishments are impressive. Yet she also acknowledges that she has spent a lot of time in bed for many reasons: needing to rest, seeking refuge to think and meditate, recovering from illness, feeling overwhelmed or lonely or sad. She admiringly cites other creative people who, like her, have worked in their beds: Emily Dickinson, Patti Smith, Edith Sitwell, and Frida Kahlo. I mention this, Virgo, because the coming days will be an excellent time for you to seek sanctuary and healing and creativity in bed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When you are functioning at your best, you Scorpios crave only the finest, top-quality highs. You embrace joys and pleasures that generate epiphanies and vitalizing transformations. Mediocre varieties of fun don’t interest you. You avoid debilitating indulgences that provide brief excitement but spawn long-term problems. In the coming weeks, dear Scorpio, I hope you will embody these descriptions. It’s crucial that you seek gratifications and delectations that uplift you, ennoble you, and bless your future.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Wish on everything,” advises Sagittarian author Francesca Lia Block. “Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.” Your homework during the next two weeks, Sagittarius, is to build a list of further marvels that you will wish on. It’s the Magic Wish season of the year for you: a time when you’re more likely than usual to encounter and generate miracles. Be proactive! Oh, and very important: What are your three top wishes?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Author Aldous Huxley wrote, “That people do not learn much from the lessons of history is the most important lesson that history has to teach.” While his observation is true much of the time, I don’t think it will be so for you in the coming weeks. I suspect you will triumph over past patterns that have repeated and repeated themselves. You will study your life story and figure out what you must do to graduate from lessons you have finally, completely learned.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the film I Origins, a scientist says this to a lover: “When the Big Bang happened, all the atoms in the universe were smashed together into one little dot that exploded outward. So my atoms and your atoms were together then ... my atoms have always known your atoms.” Although this sounds poetic, it’s true in a literal sense: The atoms that compose you and me and everyone else were originally all squeezed together in a tiny space. We knew each other intimately! The coming days will be an excellent time to celebrate your fundamental link with the rest of the universe. You’ll be extra receptive to feeling connection. You’ll be especially adept at fitting your energy together with others’. You’ll love the sensation of being united, merged, blended.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): My Piscean friend Luna sent me a message that sums up how I feel about you these days. I’ll repeat it here in the hope it will inspire you to be perfectly yourself. Luna said, “Every time I meet someone who was born within like two weeks of my birthday, I end up with the impression that they are the loopiest and wisest person I’ve met in a long time. They are totally ridiculous and worthy of profound respect. They are unhinged and brilliantly focused. They are fuzzy-headed dreamers who couldn’t possibly ever get anything practical accomplished and they are lyrical thinkers who charm me with their attunement to the world’s beauty and impress me with their understanding of how the world works. Hahahahaha. Luckily for me, I know the fool is sacred.” ∆
