SLO County, cities, and nonprofits help the homeless during heatwave FILE PHOTO BY BULBUL RAJAGOPAL

S

oaring temperatures in San Luis Obispo County sent local officials and nonprofits scrambling to help the homeless population get out of the heat. For more than a week running, the county and much of California has been wrapped in a heatwave, with some areas reporting record highs of more than 100 degrees. The National Weather Service [NWS] extended its Excessive Heat Warning to Sep. 9. In an Aug. 30 email to New Times, some county supervisors, and homelessness management leaders, Hope’s Village Founder Becky Jorgeson questioned the official plans to aid the unhoused during the heat. “People are desperate on the streets,” her email read. “Hope’s Village’s concern is for those at Oakie Village [Oklahoma Avenue Safe Parking Site]—it’ll be hotter than the dickens out there and very little shade was ever put up. And no refrigeration to keep food or water cold.” When NWS warned SLO County about the coming heatwave on Aug. 31, some cities opened cooling centers in North County—where temperatures were expected to top 110 degrees. In Paso Robles, homeless people can find shade at the City Hall and Library Building, the Senior Center, and the Veterans Memorial Building. In Atascadero, the community room at the public library operated as a temporary cooling center. Laurel Weir, the administrative services manager of the county homeless services unit, told New Times that the county operated library became a cooling center on Sunday and Monday, Sept. 4 and 5, when the library would have normally been closed. “The library is open for regular hours this week and while it is not an ‘official’ cooling center, people seeking relief from the heat are welcome to come into the library to cool off,” Weir said. “I was told by library staff that the library also has a water station where people can refill their water bottles.” According to California’s extreme temperature response plan, there are no definite temperature benchmarks that activate the need for cooling centers. Vince Pierucci, the director of SLO County’s Emergency Medical Services, said that the county makes that decision based on forecasts produced by the NWS, such as issuing an excessive heat watch status that lasts for five or more days consecutively. Temperatures that

SLO city to build new fencing along Railroad Safety Trail San Luis Obispo Public Works Director Matt Horn used a photo instead of words to make his point to the SLO City Council on Sept. 6. The image projected onto the City Hall screen showed a tattered section of chain link fence that separates the city’s popular Railroad Safety Trail from its namesake, the Union Pacific Railroad, as a freight train passes by.

COOL OFF According to Jeff Al-Mashat, the program manager of the Oklahoma Avenue Safe Parking Site, most homeless participants spend time in their trailers and use the generators to maintain air flow.

don’t drop overnight are also a warning bell, according to Pierucci. “In my experience, that has been a significant factor in deciding what next steps should occur. If the body doesn’t have the ability to cool off and rest then the person has an increased likelihood of experiencing heat illness as the ‘heatwave’ continues,” he said via email. The city of SLO also offers a cooling center at the 40 Prado Homeless Services Center organized by the Community Action Partnership of SLO County (CAPSLO). Once unhoused people enter that space, staff provides them with water, to-go meal bags, and opportunities to shower, said Jack Lahey, CAPSLO’s director of homeless services. CAPSLO also works with the county to provide case management services at the much-debated Oklahoma Avenue Parking Site (previously called Kansas Avenue). Lahey said that they offer daily rideshare services to the homeless participants of that program in case they need to go to the cooling center or to local stores. SLO County’s parking site program manager, Jeff Al-Mashat, said the priority is ensuring that everyone has cold water to drink at the site by delivering hundreds of bottles of water. “I make runs to the store regularly during

the heatwave,” Al-Mashat said. “The CAPSLO trailer uses a fridge to keep the water cold.” Currently, 65 people live on-site. Al-Mashat said they mainly stay in their trailers and use the generators to keep the air flowing. There are also four round-the-clock showers, with one of them being ADA-friendly. Al-Mashat added that in the coming weeks, Oklahoma Avenue would soon receive a solar-powered vehicle through the local Food Bank. It would provide healthy food to participants with the ability to refrigerate and store it safely in the heat. Other nonprofits are also helping keep homeless residents hydrated and safe in the heat. In Atascadero and Paso Robles, staff and volunteers at the El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) continuously provide water bottles, iced water, and cooling towels to homeless people, Chief Operations Officer Mimi Rodriguez said. Community members donated those and can continue to drop off items at ECHO’s Atascadero shelter location. “ECHO provides showers from Monday to Friday in Atascadero, and we have been providing that during this heatwave,” Rodriguez said. “At our Paso location, the showers are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.” Δ —Bulbul Rajagopal

With some parts mangled or leveled to the ground and others completely missing, the photo captured just one of the breaches in fencing along the mile stretch of multi-modal pathway that connects the Jennifer Street bridge to Orcutt Road, which cyclists and pedestrians are known to slip through to cross the tracks. “I think the picture says it all,” Horn told City Council members. “That’s what we’re trying to address.” Citing safety and legal concerns, city officials

asked the council on Sept. 6 to approve $500,500 in spending to complete a fence replacement project. While the council did unanimously vote to greenlight the spending, it did so with some grumbling and discussion. “It’s a lot of money to pay for a fence when we could build something [else for bikes and pedestrians],” said Councilmember Michelle Shoresman, echoing sentiments she said she heard from constituents.

News NEWS from page 4

One constituent, Helene Finger, argued that the city should not pay for a new railroad fence until it had plans in place for a safe and legal bike and pedestrian crossing over the tracks. “The city should not be spending close to a half a million dollars on dividing the community,” Finger wrote in a letter to the city, calling the lack of a safe track crossing on that side of town “a major hurdle” to a “fully connected” transportation network in the city. But city staff countered that maintaining existing bike paths should also hold a high priority. On top of the safety issues inherent in allowing illegal track crossings to take place, SLO officials said that the city has binding agreements with Union Pacific dating back to the 1990s to maintain a barrier between the trail and the tracks. “It does obligate us to maintain and construct a wall,” SLO City Manager Derek Johnson said. “That agreement is very clear. That’s what we agreed to.” Johnson added that the city has not had the funds in past years to tackle the fencing project. But SLO voters’ approval of a sales tax increase in 2018 changed that. “The short answer is Measure G [the tax increase] has afforded us the ability to catch up on a lot of deferred maintenance,” Johnson said. “As we think about future partnerships with Union Pacific, we know we need to be in position to have honored the commitments we already made.” The new fencing along the pathway will look “very similar to what’s installed on the Bob Jones Trail,” Horn said, which is a “three-strand wood fence with some metal kind of chain link.” “We anticipate that it will take two to three months for the bidding process and probably about six months to install the fencing,” Horn added. For locals wondering when or if the city will pursue a new, legal railroad crossing, that’s a long way off. It’s not among the city’s many top priority bike projects—but that could change. “Make your voice heard during the financial planning process,” Shoresman advised residents. Councilmember Andy Pease said that she’s still hopeful the city can work with Union Pacific on a potential at-grade bike and pedestrian crossing—a type of facility the railroad company isn’t usually amenable to. That crossing would be significantly less expensive than an overpass. “I and some other municipalities have talked about how unreasonable [Union Pacific’s policy] is, in a time where light rail is going back and forth through cities with very robust, secure, at-grade pedestrian and bike crossings,” Pease said. “You can do a really good [at-grade] system that I think would be safe.” —Peter Johnson

Paso teacher butts heads with school board, selected County Teacher of the Year

When Paso Robles High School picked longtime social studies teacher Geoffrey Land as Teacher of the Year, he was surprised—a feeling that continued as his name moved up through the award’s ranks.

“I was even more surprised when the [Paso Robles Joint Unified School] District chose me as the District Teacher of the Year, given that there’s a good number of schools in the Paso school district,” he said. “And when I was chosen as [SLO] County Teacher of the Year, I am a bit uncomfortable, singling out any teacher in what is really inherently a real collaborative profession. But I guess I will accept the honor, if it means more attention can be given to issues of diversity and equity and representation and equality for students.” Land has been teaching for more than 25 years and advocated for the return of an ethnic studies course to the high school in early 2021. Some district parents and members of the school board called his proposed curriculum “critical race theory,” and the discussion that followed caused outcry among other parents and students, who labeled the district as racist against students of color. The social studies professor has also supported student events such as A Night for DACA Dreamers (April 2018), the first PRHS Baile (March 2022), and the Coming Out Against Hate Forum (October 2021), which took place in the wake of a pride flag incident at the high school. All of the events, he said, were aimed at giving marginalized students a voice. “I think what motivates me is when I see students developing the courage to speak out to people in power, and to advocate for a place at the decision making table,” Land said. “I recognize that if teachers can really celebrate students for who they are and encourage them to express their identities and their views, that this is a better country, better community, better schools, and we’re better for it.” He most recently butted heads with the Paso school board over protections for LGBTQ students. “I don’t think that the school board right now, as it currently exists, is sensitive to issues of bullying against LGBTQ students or racism that exists on campus or the many forms of bullying and bigotry that take place directed at students of color and English language learners and undocumented students,” Land said. “I think the school board right now is much more interested in fighting imaginary culture wars than in actually strengthening the educational programs and resources at the high school and throughout the district. The school board right now needs to listen to students and take the time to educate themselves about the very real legal obligations they have toward all of their students.” Despite previous conflicts, the district awarded Land with the Teacher of the Year award in May. He was among four other teachers nominated to be in the running for the County Teacher of the Year. According to Thomas Alvarez, chief human resources officer for the SLO County Office of Education, a committee composed of the county superintendent, school district superintendents, the previous year’s winner, and Alvarez selected Land. Now, Land is in the running for California Teacher of the Year. “They all had impacts to districts and schools—[Land] did a lot with the community and courses he teaches and

the impact he has on students. That’s what elevated him, his work with the community,” Alvarez said. —Shwetha Sundarrajan

Coastal Commission hears from Energy Commission chair on offshore wind and grid challenges

The day after a sweltering heatwave nearly knocked out California’s electrical grid, the chair of the California Energy Commission spoke in Pismo Beach about the energy challenges facing the state and the next steps for developing offshore wind farms near Morro Bay. “Yesterday was the all-time record for energy demand in the state of California in our history. We came about as close as you can come to having rotating outages on the grid last night,” chair David Hochschild told the California Coastal Commission during its Sept. 7 meeting. “We’re in a moment where we really need to do two things: grapple with the consequences of climate change, but at the same time press forward more aggressively than ever before on climate solutions.” One of those solutions, Hochschild said, sits about 20 miles off the coasts of SLO and Humboldt counties. According to newly adopted state targets, offshore wind farms in California are set to produce between 2 and 5 gigawatts of power by 2030 and 25 gigawatts by 2045—all in service of a 2045 goal to achieve 100 percent renewable energy. Hochschild said that the “very first step” in advancing offshore wind development in Morro Bay is to complete a lease sale for the territory this fall. The 376-square-mile ocean area designated by the federal government has up to 3 gigawatts of generation capacity. “Then it really all becomes implementation,” Hochschild said to the Coastal Commission. “I think we are exiting a period of asking, should we be going bold … and entering what I’d call the Great Implementation. The debate is over—it’s all about execution now.” Much of the responsibility in overseeing the state’s rapid transition to renewable energy is falling on the Energy Commission. Hochschild noted that his agency’s budget has increased more than 10-fold over recent years up to $10.5 billion this year. “I’m overwhelmed with the new resources we have. … We’ve never had this level of focus and investment,” he said. “We’re trying to bring big, new energy solutions to scale.” In preparation for the commission’s work to shepherd the development of offshore wind, Hochschild recently traveled to the East Coast and to Europe to tour established offshore wind farms. The Atlantic Ocean has a shallower continental shelf than the Pacific Ocean, he said, which means the East Coast’s turbine technology will differ from California’s.

projects are floating. They’re incredibly stable on high seas,” he said. Hochschild said that the technology is rapidly improving for wind farms: robots are starting to be able to do some of the routine maintenance service on the turbines in Europe, which is helping cut down on costs. “We really want to be smart about moving forward and not miss the lessons of other countries,” he said. Coastal Commission Chair Donne Brownsey, of Fort Bragg, thanked Hochschild for his presentation and said she believes the partnership between the two agencies will be critical to the offshore wind projects’ success going forward. “I know our staffs have formed this collaborative relationship, particularly on offshore wind,” Brownsey said. “I think that what has been established has been a very successful model of really expediting these projects.” —Peter Johnson

Tiny house project creates waves in Morro Bay

Aesthetic and public access concerns have plagued a triangular plot of land nestled in a crevice between Sandpiper Court and Main Street in recent months. In May, the Morro Bay Planning Commission denied Sandy Bean’s application to build a 496-square-foot, two-story tiny home on that lot, which included requests for a conditional use permit, coastal development permit, and several variances. “Three planning commissioners were concerned with the exterior look of the home, compatibility with the neighborhood, potential detrimental effects on the bluff, and the belief that this site should’ve never been a building site,” a staff report stated. Bean appealed the decision, citing misinformation about the project during the Planning Commission’s May 17 meeting. The appeal also stated that the project was reviewed under “different standards and conditions than would be required of other recently approved homes also on the coastal bluff.” At the Morro Bay City Council’s Aug. 23 meeting, council members and the community discussed the logistics of Bean’s project, including variances requested by Bean, which would allow for better design and function of the tiny home and were similar to varancies granted to other residences facing similar challenges. These included allowing Bean to have an uncovered parking space, a 2-foot side yard setback, adjusted roofing heights, and a screening trellis. Mayor John Headding said the variances weren’t essential to allowing the existence of a home on the site. “I believe the variances required were minor, and although they improved the design and function of the project, they were not unlike any other variances granted to other projects in the city, other than the parking variance,” Headding said. The council voted 4-1 to grant Bean the permits she had requested, reversing the Planning Commission’s decision. While a majority of the council was in agreement, NEWS continued page 7

Bean disputed claims made by Planning Commission Chair Susan Stewart, who was the sole vote supporting Hoshstetler, citing documents relevant Bean’s tiny home project during that May to the property to support her project. She said that stories circulating about commission meeting, urged the council to overturn the decision denying her project. the property incorrectly assume that lot wasn’t intended for a residence. “As designed, this project is quirky, “I actually have a copy of the grant charming, functional, and fits in with deed for this lot from the 1950s.

They are paralyzed between their loathing of nuclear power and their conviction that greenhouse gases must be quickly eliminated to save humanity. For others, it is a test that reveals just how serious a problem they truly believe climate change to be. If they are willing to aggravate a condition that they are telling us will soon doom the planet, you really have to question their sincerity. Are the rants of Greta Thunberg predicting the dystopian future facing us, merely the usual hysterics and hyperbole we expect from the left?

Letters Polio is back— where are we going with this? The alert has gone out that polio has been detected in a New York water treatment plant. So, we add that to monkeypox and the ongoing COVID-19 variant. Where are we going with this? First off, it’s just the ongoing fearmongering that the federal government is engaged in to exert control over the population. The draconian shutdown of our country was over the top. Polio was a disease that disappeared. A vigorous vaccination program and a requirement for immigrants to be immunized before entry to the United States assured that the paralyzing scourge was no longer to be feared. Now polio seems to be back. Smallpox (disguised as monkeypox) is back. Upticks in COVID-19 are back. On our southern border, estimates of 100,000 people from more than 100 different countries, including Central America and Africa where diseases we’ve long eliminated continue to be a health risk, are allowed to flood into this country unimmunized, untested, and put on buses to be dispersed among the 48 continental states. I come to one conclusion: If this “crying wolf” should be taken seriously, why isn’t the southern border shut? Jan Lipski Vandenberg Village

ot enough for you? In the Laguna Lake area, not only has it been hotter than a stolen tamale, but 2,300 Pacific Gas & Electric customers had to contend with power outages on Sept. 4, 5, and 6 in the afternoon at the heat’s peak. There’s a terrible stillness when fans stop turning and your wee dog looks at you with widening, teary eyes and begins panting uncontrollably. PG&E, the monopoly everyone loves to hate, thoughtfully sends out text messages to affected customers: “PG&E Outage Alert: Address starting 1234 may be experiencing an unplanned outage affecting 2,312 customers.” Well no shit, Sherlock. My sweat is sweating. Then 20 minutes later they send a text about a crew on the way, then on-site, and a while later you get a text saying power has been restored just in case you haven’t noticed your fans are turning. Then repeat. PG&E engineers have been flummoxed. A safety system automatically shuts off power if a tree limb or other object touches a powerline. Knowing PG&E’s sparkling history of keeping powerlines free of potential hazards (Yes, that’s sarcasm), is it any wonder why the power goes off? Of course, it could be worse than sweating in a hot house. For instance, have you asked yourself how your unhoused neighbors are doing? Where are they supposed to go? How “safe” is the Oklahoma Avenue Safe

Parking Village when RVs don’t have water or power hookups and can’t run generators if they can’t afford gas? Homeless advocate Becky Jorgeson has been pleading with officials to do something: “While we are very grateful for a place for homeless people living in their vehicles to legally be, I write because we’re very concerned about the people living out there,” she wrote to SLO County’s Public Health Director Penny Borenstein, Sheriff Ian Parkinson, County Counsel Rita Neal, and Board of Supervisors among others. “There are health and safety concerns along with code violations that have not been addressed in a year. A refrigeration unit was finally delivered a few weeks ago but is still not powered up. No way to keep food cold. So food sits and rots in the sun. After a year.” Handing out “cooling towels” and bottled water is better than nothing, and offering rides to cooling stations like the 40 Prado Homeless Center sounds good, but homeless people are often afraid to leave their possessions behind, and some have been suspended from Prado for bad behavior, according to CAPSLO Director of Homeless Services Jack Lahey. Thanks to global climate change, these problems aren’t going away. They require permanent solutions, not moist towels.

SLO Ranch Farms & Marketplace is excited to announce the first three businesses slated to open at the Marketplace in 2023 SLO Ranch Farms & Marketplace at San Luis Ranch in San Luis Obispo is thrilled to release the first names of a few of the trendy and highly sought-after vendors that are slated to open in the Marketplace mid-2023. Lucy’s Coffee Co. started off in their refurbished food truck, “Polly,” bringing joy, coffee, and many other delicious items to workplaces, weddings, and other special events throughout the Central Coast for three years. As their popularity grew, they opened their first location at the Village at Laurel Lane in San Luis Obispo. With an evergrowing demand for their specialty drinks, their homemade syrups, and their bagels made fresh daily, they will be opening their second location at SLO Ranch Farms & Marketplace. Vintage Cheese specializes in open-vat, hand-crafted cheeses made from using century old recipes, perfected with time. Their Artisanal cheeses are handmade by skilled craftsmen, all with locally sourced ingredients from California dairies. Their wide variety of offerings include cow, sheep, and goat milk cheeses, all aged to perfection. The Davis family is excited to be bringing Vintage Cheese Company Creamery to

the City of SLO. "Our SLO Ranch Creamery will allow everyone access to viewing the cheeses that are made on a daily basis,” said Ryan Davis, President of Vintage Cheese Company. “We want our creamery to be a fun place where residents can come and build a charcuterie board or gift baskets with local cheeses, nuts, and candies, or just pick up some fresh warm cheese curds out of the vat,” Davis added. The Hangout offers tastefully curated vintage and handmade artist goods you will not find anywhere. It is a new kind of collective that features a clever mix of old and new clothing, art, books, and specialty home goods. The Hangout is an experience. The space offers a place to gather and share, that tells a story and has a soul. This will be their second location. You can find their original location in Long Beach, CA. SLO Ranch Farms and Marketplace will be located in the heart of San Luis Ranch at 865 Froom Ranch Way, opening Summer of 2023. The SLO Ranch Farms will provide an authentic San Luis Obispo Farm to Table experience that will be a #1 family friendly destination for locals and visitors alike. The Marketplace will exude an unmatched

vibrant atmosphere with more than 15 vendors from boutique retail spaces to trendy restaurants, to distilleries, creameries, an event venue, and more. SLO Ranch Farms & Marketplace will also feature a neighborhood market style grocery store, you pick gardens, and certainly, the freshest produce on the Central Coast. Construction for the upcoming Marketplace successfully kicked off in the Spring in 2022 and is being built by Coastal Community Builders who has been committed to our local communities for more than 30 years. With more than 70% of The Marketplace already secured with well-known local businesses and vendors, The SLO Ranch Farms & Marketplace will undoubtedly be known as “The Place to Be in Slo” when it opens Summer of 2023.

On September 14, 2019 at about 9:16pm, our son Thomas fell from the Marsh Street parking structure and died. It has been three years. He had spent the day with a new acquaintance named David A. Knight of Atascadero. They were supposed to look at art but instead, Knight took Tommy to the Frog and Peach bar on Higuera Street. He bought Tommy so many drinks in a hour that Tommy’s blood alcohol level was .38 when he died. We continue to look for witnesses from that night who may have seen or heard something at the bar, the parking structure, or the pedestrian walkway by the movie theaters. Also, if anyone knows anything about Knight, a convicted child molester, that would be helpful, please contact us at 805.538.8753.

Tenant tips GUIDE ’22 Renting can be stressful in San Luis Obispo, but one key to success is to know your rights

F

or all of the beauty and romance of living in San Luis Obispo, being a renter in town can sometimes feel like an unpleasant struggle. Whether it’s getting hit with an increase to your already high rent, wondering if you’ll just have to live with that leaky ceiling or broken heater, or not knowing why you never got your security deposit back, many SLO renters— including college students—encounter stressful housing challenges. But remember: Tenants have rights, and California has some of the strongest tenant protections in the country. New Times reached out to Stephanie Barclay, legal director at the SLO Legal Assistance Foundation, to ask about the most common predicaments that student renters face and her advice on how to navigate them. Barclay said that the SLO Legal Assistance Foundation gets “a lot of calls” from Cal Poly and Cuesta College students, and the most frequent complaints she hears are about rent increases and housing habitability. On both of those fronts, there are legal standards and rules that apply.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

“Landlords are required to keep rental premises in a safe and ‘habitable’ condition,”

Barclay said. “This means things like doors and windows that properly close; plumbing, gas, and heating facilities maintained in good working order; hot and cold running water; safe electrical wiring; common areas and areas in control of landlord kept free from garbage and pests; and safely maintained floors, stairways, and railings. Landlords are also required to provide smoke detectors in all residential units.” As a tenant, if any of those items are missing or broken in a unit, you should put in a formal request with the landlord in writing. You should also document the condition of the unit beforehand with time-stamped photographs. “The request should be dated, and the tenant should keep a copy for their records,” Barclay said. If the landlord has not responded or fixed the health and safety issue in 30 days (or fewer days if it’s urgent), the tenant can take initiative to address the problem— like hire a plumber or go to the hardware store—and deduct that cost from their next rent check or, in serious cases, sue the landlord in small claims court. “The ‘repair and deduct’ and rent withholding remedies are risky,” Barclay noted, “and we do not recommend that a tenant do either of those without speaking with an attorney.”

DILAPIDATED Local college students are often the victims of substandard housing. But tenants also have rights and legal recourses.

It’s important to also understand the difference between unsafe and illegally substandard housing conditions and shabby but still-legal housing conditions, Barclay said. A landlord, for example, legally doesn’t have to replace carpets, repaint a unit, or update home appliances—unless there is a health and safety hazard. “Landlords are not required to keep the unit in an aesthetically pleasing state,” she said. “Problems that are caused by the tenant (or their guests) are also not the landlord’s responsibility to address. For example, if mold is caused by the tenant leaving damp belongings out … the landlord wouldn’t be responsible for addressing the mold. But if the mold is caused by some structural problem with the unit … then the landlord would be

responsible for addressing the mold in that case.”

RAISING RENT

Landlords are allowed to raise rents, but those rent increases must fit within certain legal parameters, which depend on what kind of unit you live in. A 2019 state law set specific guardrails for rent increases in most apartment buildings, triplexes, duplexes that aren’t owneroccupied, and mobile homes, Barclay said. The law does not apply to single-family houses. “If a tenant is protected by [the 2019 law], the most their rent can go up over any 12-month period is 5 percent plus the change in cost of living over the past year, TENANT TIPS continued page 20

SECURITY DEPOSITS

During the move-out process, tenants and landlords sometimes clash over the security deposit—the lump sum of money paid to the landlord before move-in to

Reporting housing violations

Landlords are required by law to maintain safe and habitable rental units. If a landlord is refusing to fix a health and safety issue in your home or apartment, contact the city of San Luis Obispo for help with enforcement. The city offers free rental inspections for tenants or landlords concerned about the safety of their housing. The city enforcement line is (805) 594-8188 and email is code@slocity.org. The SLO Legal Assistance Foundation, a local nonprofit, can provide legal guidance to renters and can be reached at (805) 543-5140.

or 10 percent, whichever is less,” she said. “As of Aug. 1, 2022, the most a protected tenant’s rent can increase in SLO County is 10 percent above the previous rent. Rent can’t be increased more than two times per year and the total increase can’t go up over 10 percent. “In any case, a landlord cannot raise the rent during the term of a fixed-term lease; that is, if you signed a one-year lease, … the landlord cannot increase the rent during that year,” Barclay said. “Also, landlords can never increase rent to retaliate against a tenant for exercising a legal right, such as asking for repairs or reporting the unit to code enforcement.” If your landlord is raising the rent, make sure to check the law—called the Tenant Protection Act of 2019—to verify that the increase is within the legal bounds. If it is, you’re likely stuck with the higher rent, as the city of SLO does not have local rental control.

cover any damage caused by renters during their tenancy. As with unsafe housing conditions and rent increases, specific laws regulate how a security deposit can be handled by a landlord. Landlords may deduct from a security deposit to cover costs to repair damage that’s beyond reasonable wear and tear, to clean the unit only to make it as clean as it was when the tenant first moved in, and to recover any unpaid rent. A tenant is entitled to an itemized list of those deductions. “A landlord may not make tenants pay for painting, new carpets, or curtains unless they are damaged beyond ordinary and reasonable wear and tear,” Barclay said. “And the landlord cannot use the tenant’s security deposit to repair problems that existed in the unit before the tenant moved in.” Barclay advised tenants to keep good records, including their email and text threads with their landlord. She also encouraged tenants to hold a professional tone and try to work in good faith with their landlord as much as possible. “It is always best to try to work things out cooperatively and amicably. It is also good to have things in writing, in case a tenant needs to show, for example, that they notified their landlord about a problem with the unit that needed to be addressed,” she said. “If a landlord refuses to address serious problems with the unit, an attorney may be able to help advocate for the tenant or educate a landlord about their legal responsibilities, but that should be the last resort.” ∆

MEAL PREP CRAZE Why reinvent the wheel when ingredients from Trader Joe’s make affordable meal prep easy and delicious.

Three easy one-pot recipes that are satisfying and don’t hurt your wallet BREAKFAST

Overnight oats (about 10 minutes) • Good and Gather old fashioned oats: $2.69 (Target) • Skippy All Natural Super Chunk peanut butter (40 oz): $5.99 (Target) • The Very Cherry Berry Blend (frozen): $2.99 (Trader Joe’s) • Oat beverage (one quart): $2.29 (Trader Joe’s) I can’t eat right away in the morning, so overnight oats is my savior because I get a filling breakfast to-go. Overnight oats require no cooking utensils, only a storage container like a Mason jar. In the container, pour in a 1/2 cup of rolled oats. Add frozen fruit or berries (any kind you enjoy), and a tablespoon of peanut or almond butter. If you have a nut allergy, Greek yogurt is a good substitute because it still gives that creaminess and added protein. From there, pour in one cup of milk or water, mix it with a spoon, and top it off with a honey drizzle and sliced banana. Rolled oats are usually affordable at any grocery store if you stick to the

generic brands. Frozen fruit is also nice to have in the freezer because it lasts longer than fresh fruit and it’s cheaper than buying fresh produce.

LUNCH

Frozen fried rice with veggies (30 minutes) • Frozen vegetable fried rice (16 oz): $2.49 (Trader Joe’s) • Broccoli slaw blend: $1.99 (Trader Joe;s) • Sliced white mushrooms: $2.99 (Trader Joe’s) • Ground turkey: $2.79 (Trader Joe’s) • Lime: $0.55 (Trader Joe’s) • Eggs (optional) • Oil, olive and/or sesame Optional: Sriracha, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder, chili oil to taste

before it spoils. This requires one large pan for cooking, a knife and cutting board, and possibly a bowl to hold the diced veggies. Start by heating up the pan with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. I like eggs in my fried rice, so I’ll crack two eggs in the pan and scramble them for about five minutes. Once the eggs are done, I’ll remove them from the pan and add more oil—I use sesame oil for this round. If you want to add more protein, use ground turkey or chicken, or tofu, depending on your preference. Ground meat tends to be cheaper than chicken breasts or cut meat, and it takes less effort to prepare. Add the meat to the pan and season it to your liking. For a more Asian flare, I used a few tablespoons of Sriracha and soy sauce, two teaspoons of

y Sundays are filled with chopping, sizzling, and—of course—loud house music bumping throughout my home. My roommates can attest to the organized chaos that is our kitchen for a few hours during the day. I choose to meal prep not to try to be a healthier individual but because I hate cooking for myself after long days, and I don’t want to spend money eating out all of the time. Meal prepping makes sure I eat well-balanced meals— instead of snacking my way through my refrigerator. As a college student or recent graduate, it can be really challenging to find healthy(-ish) meals that don’t break the budget, or that don’t require too much equipment, time, and effort when it comes to preparing food. In my cooking journey, I’ve found several recipes that require only one pot, and it’s been a game-changer. They’re delicious, budget-friendly, easy to change or ingredient-swap, and require minimal cleanup.

garlic powder, onion powder, and ginger powder, and a little chili oil (red chili flakes also work if you want more spice). Let the ground meat cook until it’s gray (not browned) and add in your frozen fried rice. I use Trader Joe’s frozen vegetable fried rice and let that sizzle in the pan. After mixing for a few minutes, I’ll add my veggies. This week I had mushrooms and a Trader Joe’s broccoli slaw mix. Add the scrambled eggs, squeeze one lime over the top, mix thoroughly, and taste periodically to see if it needs anything.

The full recipe can be found on Budget Bytes—a website I recommend because it’s full of affordable, easy, one-pot meal options. This pasta dish also requires butter, garlic, onion, milk, cream cheese, pasta, chicken, and chicken broth. Start with one large pan and heat 2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil with half a chopped onion and a clove of garlic. The recipe says to add diced raw, chicken, but because I’m lazy I’ll use a can of chickpeas instead. It takes less time and it’s cost-effective; at Trader Joe’s a can of chickpeas costs 89 cents whereas chicken breasts cost $4.49 per pound. Frozen chicken breast is another cheaper option if you want an animal-based protein. Sauté the chickpeas with the onion, oil, and garlic for about two minutes, and then add 1 1/2 cups of uncooked pasta and 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth to the mix and let that come to a boil. Instead of buying chicken broth, get chicken bouillon—dehydrated chicken stock—and use hot water to mix it. Chicken bouillon is much cheaper, tastes similar, and it lasts longer than cans or boxes of broth. After most of the broth has been absorbed, add a cup of any milk, 1/3 cup of pesto, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, and 3 to 4 tablespoons of cream cheese. I don’t usually use cream cheese often enough to purchase it, so I use plain Greek yogurt instead. Mix ingredients well and the pasta will get a creamy, Alfredo-like texture. I add broccoli, spinach, and red pepper flakes, but those are optional. These measurements give me five days’ worth of food, but the recipe can be adjusted for fewer servings. ∆

red oak was put under high pressure, heat, and moisture that eventually broke down the lignin polymer that binds wood fibers together. Essentially, the steam melts the wood superficially and allows reforming. Wish is one of a kind and now lives in Harris’ family living room in Los Angeles County’s Sierra Madre. Harris remembers the electrifying atmosphere at last year’s Vellum competition in the Architecture Building. It was packed with competitors, their furniture, and well-wishers, but Harris wasn’t around for the ending. “I actually wasn’t there to accept the award because I didn’t think I’d win anything! The new Marvel movie had just come out and my friends and I were gonna see it,” he said. “In the middle of the movie, my phone was buzzing and I see it’s my friend, and they say I’ve won. I’m on the floor shaking. They actually left the competition, picked me up from the movies, and drove me all the way back.” Friendships like those played a big role in his victory, Harris said. He credited his friends and peers in his program for feedback and guidance at all hours of the day, as the group would

spend long hours constructing their ideas for the competition. Like most good friendships, their humor kept Harris humble after his Vellum win. Wish still had to be graded for his final class assignment. The grade doled out by Lecturer Brent Freeby to the winner? An A-minus. “My friends tease me for it. I thought it was kinda cheeky. But he’s an amazing professor, I can’t think of him in better regards. Coming out of COVID, all of us were very shy, nervous, and uncertain about things. He broke down all those barriers and made us all feel comfortable,” he said. For new competitors in this year’s furniture building competition, Harris’ advice is almost Socratic. “I don’t really know anything. Don’t let your lack of experience stop you from loving something. I don’t have any sort of intuition,” he said. “I just love the process, and I loved doing this. If you don’t love it anymore, keep changing it. Trust the process.” ∆ Reach Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal at brajagopal@newtimesslo.com.

Tinkering away GUIDE ’22 Cuesta College will prepare students for jobs in airplane maintenance fields starting in 2023

rive south over the Cuesta Grade and you’ll see a billboard advertising a class at Cuesta College like none other. Meet the brand new aviation maintenance technician program. Starting in January 2023, the program is designed for students interested in the aviation industry to get their airframe and powerplant mechanics certifications, commonly known as the A&P certificate. The certification is required for anyone looking to become a licensed aviation maintenance technician. In order to be certified, students must take the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) aircraft mechanic oral, practical, and written tests, which require students to either have 18 months of practical experience or to have graduated from one of the 19 FAA approved Aviation Maintenance Technician schools in California. “The A&P license is one of the few paths [where] you don’t need to go to a four-year school and you don’t need to move away. If this program is here, you can get this license, and once you have that license, you are pretty much employable in a variety of industries, even aerospace and beyond. No matter where you go. You’re just always going to find a job if you have that FAA license,” said Bill Borgsmiller, president and CEO of ACI Jet.

The Cuesta program has been in the works for five years after industry officials like Borgsmiller realized the need was growing for technicians in the aerospace industry. According to Boeing’s 2022 Pilot and Technician Forecast, nearly 610,000 new maintenance technicians will be needed to maintain the global commercial fleet over the next 20 years. Borgsmiller then reached out to Cuesta College Superintendent Jill Stearns about creating a new program to address the shortage issue. “When I brought the request from Mr. Borgsmiller to the team at Cuesta College, the first step was to research the employment opportunity for aviation maintenance technicians locally, statewide, and nationally,” Stearns said via email. “Employment of technicians includes operations related to commercial flight, private aviation, drones, and U.S. government positions. There is a large and growing need for licensed aviation maintenance technicians.” According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, aircraft mechanics’ and service technicians’ employment is projected to grow by 12 percent, and avionics technicians’ employment is projected to grow by 10 percent—and both roles are expected to

outpace employment levels for all other occupations in the U.S. by 8 percent. “San Luis Obispo is a pretty aerospacecentric community with Cal Poly here, and a lot of people don’t realize drone development, all these little mom-andpop aerospace companies, they all need technical people to work on the devices

that they build, create, and maintain,” Borgsmiller said. “So we just kind of heard we realized our grumblings weren’t unique to ourselves. And so we started talking to Cuesta about putting a program together.” CUESTA A&P continued page 30

But creating a brand new aviation maintenance technician program wasn’t cheap. According to Stearns, it took nearly $2 million to get the program off the ground. “Cuesta College received very substantial support from ACI Jet and SLO County Board of Supervisors, each of whom provided $500,000 to launch the program. Additionally, Cuesta College is investing federal Title V grant funds received for this purpose and using career education funding, including Strong Workforce [program] and Perkins [federal grant], to cover the start-up and ongoing costs of the program,” she said. Stearns added that Cuesta has also applied for an FAA grant to help fund the program. Once the 18-month program launches in January 2023, it will allow a cohort of 25 students based on a first come, first served basis to work on decommissioned aircrafts at ACI Jet’s hangar in the San Luis Obispo Airport. “Some of the things that they’ll be working on is pulling components apart into the parts, being able to sort of work and troubleshoot the kinds of issues that might be occurring when something isn’t running properly or isn’t working effectively,” said Dr. Oscar Ramos, dean of instruction at Cuesta College. “So we’re basically aligning our curriculum with the FAA [to] ensure that we’re meeting all the objectives so when they go to the test they’re able to be successful.” The program isn’t like your typical college class. Classes will take place Monday through Thursday for around six hours and will be split into two parts— 30-minute classroom sessions followed by

lab periods where students will be able to have handson experience working on a variety of aircrafts. For now, ACI Jet and Cuesta College procured several aircrafts for students to work on, including a Cessna Citation jet, a Beechcraft King Air, and a Ryan Navion. Borgsmiller said they were still looking for a Cessna 172 Skyhawk and a helicopter. While the first cohort of the aviation maintenance technician program will only be accepting 25 students, Stearns said that the start date of the next cohort is still being determined. While there are no prerequisites for the program, Cuesta College is currently offering a series of five-week classes this semester to garner interest for the aviation maintenance technician program. The first set of these classes was scheduled to begin on Sept. 6 with more than 80 students registered, Ramon said. In addition to these courses, he said that Cuesta has also been working with other high schools and community groups to generate interest in the program. “So we have put [together] these community ed courses that we’re running twice a week, so that people can sign up and say, ‘Hey, am I interested in being an aviation maintenance tech? Maybe I am, maybe I’m not. What does it entail?’” Ramon said. “So what we’re doing is creating an opportunity for students to see what they would potentially be doing and working on before they actually sign up for the [class].” ∆

Don’t be you GUIDE ’22 Some tips for the new kids on the block

W

elcome to college! It’s your gateway to an overpriced degree, a soul-sucking “career,” a ball-andchain mortgage, and your best years of working for “the man” under the guise of the so-called “American Dream” that’s really a lifetime of servitude made slightly less horrible by your ability to buy a new BMW every few years and a few tropical vacations slathered in expensive cocktails. Oh, and your sweet 80-inch TV. Numb that mind! Since you’re here, and since college will be the last chance for you to be an irresponsible, self-centered tool before you face the music of “real life,” let’s get a few things straight. Nobody who lives in SLO County likes you. We all think you’re entitled, clueless fools living off mommy and daddy’s dime. Oh sure, we’ll smile and appreciate the “energy” and economic boost you bring to the area … until you piss us off. Then we’ll get vindictive on your asses. We’ll have the cops crawling all over your rundown, overpriced, outof-code rental faster than you can say, “noise ordinance.” So, let’s start with some basics.

Don’t barf on your neighbor’s lawn. Just don’t. In fact, if you’re stumbling around drunk trying to figure out where your house is or where your friend’s house is, stop. Sit on the curb. Call someone who cares about you. Have them pick you up. Ask around. Almost every local has a story about some drunk-ass college kid walking in their front door and screaming, “Where’s my friend Joey. Joey! I know you’re in here!” He’s not. You’ve got the wrong house, jackass. If you’re the unlucky sap who gets the “call” to pick up Drunky McDrunkerpants, please be sober. Yes, California has a “911 Good Samaritan Law” (AB 472) that protects from prosecution under-aged drinkers seeking help for someone incapacitated … to a point! Obviously, if your friend is passed out drunk or high and may be in distress but you’re underage and have been drinking too and don’t want to get in trouble, you must call 911 anyway, moron. But the Good Samaritan Law won’t help you if you supplied or sold the drugs, or forcibly administered them (Roofie, anyone?), or if you’re driving (What’s wrong with you? Jesus!), or if you’re on parole or probation (Starting young, eh?). DON’T BE YOU continued page 34

DON’T BE YOU from page 32

How about you all just learn your limit, which is super low because you’re a little baby drinker. Don’t worry. You’ll eventually pickle your liver over the course of your long, dreary career. It’s not a race, pre-gamer. Here are a few other basics: Bring your freaking trashcans in after collection day. Don’t let them sit on the curb for days on end. And guess what? Your ratty couch isn’t supposed to be on your front porch (or lawn or roof). There are actual laws against that, and after you’ve pissed off your neighbor by barfing on her lawn, you can bet your ass she’ll be reporting you every time you fart too loud. And hey, newsflash! Locals want to park, too, and in some neighborhoods that’s pretty near impossible, in part because some of you cheap bastards don’t want to pay for a campus parking pass, so you park your super-safe Volvo (“Thanks for nothing, mom and dad! I wanted a Mustang.”) in an already crowded neighborhood by campus and walk in. Jesus H. Christ! Take the freaking bus! It’s free with your college ID. Are you driving around town? Guess what, Speed Racer, you’re not a demon on wheels, and you don’t know where the hell you’re going. Learn the oneway streets downtown. Look out for pedestrians. If you’re walking, obey the laws. Don’t cross on a red light or jaywalk.

STUDENT

There might be an idiot college kid driving too fast who will hit and kill you. Also, don’t walk drunk on the railroad tracks near campus. You’ll be killed. Here’s another thing, and it’s important: The police have nothing better to do than to hassle you. Sure, they might have to hassle a homeless person or pull over a soccer mom who failed to use her turn signal once in a while, but they have a lot of time to follow up on that noise complaint, to stop a stumbling kid for a drunk-in-public check, or to pull you over for riding your bike at night without a light (Seriously, get a light. You’re invisible!). Finally, as a collegiate bonus note, it’s time for you to realize that the Kahoot! theme song is the most annoying collection of organized sounds in the universe, and it must die. If you must use Kahoot! in your Comms presentation, turn the sound down … or off. It’s literally horrible, and its “composer” Alf Inge Wang—a professor in the Norwegian University of Science and Tech’s Department of Computer Science— should be forbidden from ever making “music” again. OK, good luck out there, and stay off my damn lawn! ∆

Dana Adobe celebrates Captain’s Luau with live performances and storytelling

The Dana Adobe and Cultural Center in Nipomo will hold the Captain’s Luau on Sunday, Sept. 17, starting at 5:30 p.m. The event includes live luau performances and programs that retell stories of Capt. William Goodwin Dana and his historical ties to Hawaii. During his travels to Hawaii in the 1800s, Dana developed a relationship with King Kamehameha III, while the two often traded various valuables with one another. According to the Dana Adobe’s website, Kamehameha would periodically send barrels of pineapples to Dana’s rancho, even after the captain ceased from trade expeditions. Kamehameha’s gifts would inspire Dana to hold a big party at the rancho. The Dana Adobe continues to celebrate the tradition with the Captain’s Luau fundraiser. Guests of this year’s event can expect to enjoy Hawaiian food, catered by Zoe’s Hawaiian Barbecue and Catering. Dishes at the buffet dinner will include kalua pork, mac salad, and other items. The event will also include a special raffle and live music from local ukulele performers. Admission to the fundraiser starts at $100, which includes dinner for two and one raffle ticket. For large groups, there is a $1,000 package that includes dinner for eight, eight raffle tickets, and one bottle of wine. Call (805) 929-5679 or visit danaadobe.org to find out more about the Captain’s Luau and other programs hosted by the Dana Adobe and Cultural Center, which is open daily between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and located at 671 S. Oakglen Ave., Nipomo. The venue is a registered historical site and is considered the oldest home in San Luis Obispo County. Δ —Caleb Wiseblood

rekkies and wookie worshipers are among the target audience of Orcutt resident H.W. Portland’s debut sci-fi novel, Explorer’s End. “I tell people, if you enjoy Indiana Jones, Star Trek, or Star Wars, you will enjoy Explorer’s End,” Portland said, before describing his filmfriendly writing style. “I write as if I am a film director using description and dialogue to direct the reader’s attention in the same way a camera is used in film,” the author explained. “I felt a special sense of pride when, without solicitation, my early readers told me the book felt very cinematic and that it reminded them of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.” The plot of Explorer’s End follows an unlikely hero on a quest to discover the origin of the galaxy, “and protect it at all costs,” according to the book’s synopsis. The novel was released, in both paperback and ebook editions, during the summer and is currently available to order through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. During a recent email interview, Portland gave the New Times some behind-the-scenes tidbits about his journey writing the book.

Based on a graphic novel series, the story revolves around 13-yearold latchkey kid Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton), who believes his neighbor, Joe Smith (Stallone), is actually a superhero named Samaritan,

who was thought to have died 20 years earlier in an epic battle with his evil twin brother, Nemesis. Sam needs a hero. His city is crime-ridden, and gang leader Cyrus (Pilou Asbæk) is determined to do what Nemesis couldn’t 20 years ago— take out the city’s electrical grid. It’s pretty cheesy, with overt lessons like this gem: “Good and bad live in everybody’s heart, and it’s up to you to make the right choice.” Yep, it’s a bit groan inducing, but Stallone looks like he’s having fun, the film has a campy ’80s vibe, and there are some fun, overthe-top action sequences.

Boba on the bay Sweet Reef in Morro Bay encapsulates one man’s journey from gold mining to boba crafting

F

ormer geologist Jared Squire described his old office as an underground gold mine in Nevada surrounded by dust and diesel fumes. Working early mornings and late nights, he realized he couldn’t sustain that pace for the rest of his life. Squire’s way out: opening Sweet Reef, a boba shop in Morro Bay. “We opened in April, and well, Morro Bay needed boba. I just started learning about it, especially how to make the recipes, and learning about other boba places that are around,” he said. “My girlfriend likes boba a lot, and I’ve always been drinking it. I found out that the quality isn’t that good in SLO County or in some of the bigger chains.” For 30-year-old Squire, boba featured frequently in his jet-setting childhood. Thanks to his parents’ work, the native Canadian moved to the Santiago, Chile, when he was 12. Then, at 15, they moved to Australia where he first tasted boba from the bubble tea (what Australia and other countries call the drink) store near a bus station in Perth. From there, Squire traveled across Southeast Asia, living in countries including Thailand, Singapore, and Cambodia that gave him a deeper appreciation for boba, chai, and Thai tea. “Some of our customers have described boba in the best way: It’s like drinking and eating at the same time. Boba itself is the balls. But in America, people also call the whole drink boba. So that’s the very confusing part,” Squire said. “In Asia, they call it bubble tea because the tea has the bubbles [or balls] in it.” The true origins of boba are contested. Some recorded accounts debate the source to be either the Chun Shui Tang tearoom or the Hanlin Tea Room, and both are in Taiwan. Inside Sweet Reef, however, a signboard on its wave-printed wall

states that boba was discovered when a Taiwanese street vendor accidentally spilled tapioca pudding into tea. While these accounts may differ, they’re all united on one thing: Boba pearls come from tapioca, and at Sweet Reef, Squire and his staff make them using starchy tapioca powder. “The boba pearls, which I call similar to rice because you have to use a lot of water to cook it, and it takes a decent amount of time for it to absorb and get the right texture. They’re called tapioca pearls and they’re made out of the cassava root,” Squire said. There’s alchemy to boba making. Squire adds earth-colored and crumbly tapioca pearls from a packet to a pot of boiling water. Over roughly half an hour, the sunken pearls absorb the water and darken. When they’re ready, the pearls bob to the top, squishy and glistening black. Squire then transfers the drained pearls to a rice cooker where they’re steamed for a while longer in a secret flavoring solution. Finally, they’re ready to submerge in Sweet Reef’s plethora of drinks. Squire told New Times that perfecting a solid Thai tea recipe was important before opening the shop. It’s a Sweet Reef mainstay and can be enjoyed on its own, or with splashes of milk (dairy or oat), and definitely with boba. Squire expanded the menu with other drink options like Mango Slush, a Korean-style Banana Milk, or Strawberry Milk tea (all made with freshly puréed fruit). Thirsty PHOTO COURTESY OF JARED SQUIRE patrons can also enjoy the pinkish gold jasmine green tea, strawberry and lychee jelly concoction called the Morro Bay Sunrise. Coffee lovers can rejoice too— Sweet Reef offers a line of boba-filled drinks called bobaccinos. They come in flavors like salted caramel, cookie butter, and chocolate and peanut butter. Squire said they listen to community feedback too, and incorporated matcha drinks on the menu after some customers suggested it. “We’re getting ready for cold weather, so there’ll be more hot GRANDMA’S LOVE As a young boy, Squire teas.

Taiyaki is a Japanese fish-shaped cake made using waffle batter and traditionally stuffed with spreads like red bean paste and sweet potato.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 101635-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www. clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 101635-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Which of your past mistakes provided you with the most valuable lessons? Newsletter.freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries-born Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was one of the greatest basketball players ever. He excelled at most aspects of the game. Some experts say his rebounding was only average for a player his size—7-foot-2. But he is still the third-best rebounder in National Basketball Association history. And he played for 20 years, until age 40. What tips might Abdul-Jabbar have for you now? Here’s a suggestion from him that aligns with your current astrological omens: “Work on those parts of your game that are fundamentally weak.” The implication is that you have a lot of strengths, and now it’s time to raise up the rest of your skill set.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): How to be the best Libra you can be in the next three weeks: 1. Make sure your cool attention to detail never gets chilly. Warm it up now and then. Invite your heart to add its counsel to your head’s observations. Tenderize your objectivity. 2. Always be willing to be puzzled. Always be entertained and educated by your puzzlement. Proceed on the theory that nothing ever changes unless somebody is puzzled. 3. Practice, practice, practice the art of moderation. Do so with the intention of using it as a flexible skill rather than an unthinking habit. 4. Applying the Goldilocks principle will be essential. Everything must be just right: neither too much nor too little; neither overly grand nor overly modest.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

(April 20-May 20): As a Taurus, you are always wise to be reverent toward your five senses. They are your glorious treasures, your marvelous superpowers, your sublime assets. In the coming weeks, they will serve you even better than usual. As you deploy them with all your amazement and appreciation unfurled, they will boost your intelligence. They will heighten your intuition in ways that guide you to good decisions. You will tune into interesting truths that had previously been hidden from you. I suspect your sensory apparatus will be so sharp and clear that it will work almost as extrasensory powers.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There are blessings in every abyss. You, of all the signs in the zodiac, have the greatest capacity to find those blessings and make them yours. Likewise, there is an abyss in each blessing. You, of all the signs, have the most power to make sure your experiences in the abyss don’t detract from but enhance the blessing. In the coming weeks, dear Scorpio, take maximum advantage of these superpowers of yours. Be a master of zeroing in on the opportunities seeded in the dilemmas. Show everyone how to home in on and enjoy the delights in the darkness. Be an inspirational role model as you extract redemption from the messes.

GEMINI

SAGITTARIUS

(May 21-June 20): When you Geminis are at your best, you don’t merely tolerate dualities. You enjoy and embrace them. You work with them eagerly. While many non-Geminis regard oppositions and paradoxes as at best inconvenient and at worst obstructive, you often find how the apparent polarities are woven together and complementary. That’s why so many of you are connoisseurs of love that’s both tough and tender. You can be effective in seemingly contradictory situations that confuse and immobilize others. All these skills of yours should come in handy during the coming weeks. Use them to the hilt.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): One of my favorite Sagittarians is practical mystic Caroline Myss, who was born with sun and Mercury and ascendant in Sagittarius. In accordance with current astrological omens, I’ve gathered six of her quotes to serve your current needs. 1. There isn’t anything in your life that cannot be changed. 2. When you do not seek or need approval, you are at your most powerful. 3. Healing comes from gathering wisdom from past actions and letting go of the pain that the education cost you. 4. The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. 5. What serves your spirit enhances your body. What diminishes your spirit diminishes your body. 6. What is in you is stronger than what is out there to defeat you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Author Jean Frémon says Cancerian naturalist Henry David Thoreau “always had two notebooks—one for facts, and the other for poetry. But Thoreau had a hard time keeping them apart, as he often found facts more poetic than his poems.” Judging from your current astrological omens, Cancerian, I suspect you are entering a time when facts will be even more poetic than usual. If you open yourself to the magic of reality, the mundane details of everyday life will delight you and appeal to your sense of wonder. Routine events will veer toward the marvelous. Can you bear to experience so much lyrical grace? I think so.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “What good is it if you read Plato but never clean your toilet?” writes author Alice Munro. To which I add, “What good is it if you have brilliant breakthroughs and intriguing insights but never translate them into practical changes in your daily rhythm?” I’m not saying you are guilty of these sins, Leo. But I want to ensure that you won’t be guilty of these sins in the coming weeks. It’s crucial to your long-term future that you devote quality time to being earthy and grounded and pragmatic. Be as effective as you are smart.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I have always felt you Capricorns are wise to commune with rocks, dirt, mud, sand, and clay. I think you should regularly touch the actual earth with your hands and bare feet. If I’m out hiking with a Capricorn friend, I might urge them to sniff blooming mushrooms and lean down to kiss the exposed roots of trees. Direct encounters with natural wonders are like magic potions and miracle medicine for you. Moreover, you flourish when you nurture close personal relationships with anything that might be described as foundational. This is always true, but will be extra true for you in the coming weeks. Your words of power are kernel, core, gist, marrow, and keystone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The coming weeks will be a favorable time to dream up creative solutions to problems that haven’t fully materialized yet. Then you can apply your discoveries as you address problems that already exist. In other words, dear Aquarius, I’m telling you that your uncanny facility for glimpsing the future can be useful in enhancing your life in the present. Your almost psychic capacity to foretell the coming trends will be instrumental as you fix glitches in the here and now.

VIRGO

PISCES

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “To love oneself is hard work,” declares Virgo author Hanif Abdurraqib. He adds, “But I think it becomes harder when you realize that you’re actually required to love multiple versions of yourself that show up without warning throughout a day, throughout a week, throughout a month, throughout a life.” Let’s make that your inspirational strategy, Virgo. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to refine, deepen, and invigorate your love for all your selves. It may be hard work, but I bet it will also be fun and exhilarating.

(Feb. 19-March 20): In the coming weeks, logic may be of only partial use to you. Information acquired through your senses might prove less than fully adequate, as well. On the other hand, your talents for feeling deeply and tapping into your intuition can provide you with highly accurate intelligence. Here’s a further tip to help you maximize your ability to understand reality: Visit a river or creek or lake. Converse with the fish and frogs and turtles and beavers. Study the ways of the crabs and crayfish and eels. Sing songs to the dragonflies and whirligig beetles and lacewings. ∆
