What the county’s talking about this week

Democrats Panetta, Carbajal lead local congressional races

The two congressional districts on the Central Coast are leaning blue, according to initial vote counts.

U.S. Representatives and Democrats Jimmy Panetta and Salud Carbajal currently hold the most tallied votes for the 19th and 24th Districts, respectively.

As of Nov. 16, vote counts show that Panetta received 69.4 percent of counted votes from the new 19th District that spans the counties of Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and parts of San Luis Obispo. His opponent, Republican Jeff Gorman, scored 30.6 percent of the votes. The 19th District used to be the 20th District, which was redrawn during recent redistricting.

“I think the 19th District is very similar to the 20th District in terms of the issues I’ll be fighting for from D.C.,” Panetta told New Times

He added that he’ll work to boost the “beauty, bounty, military, and bedrooms” of the district, meaning protecting the natural landscape, improving federal funding for agriculture, safeguarding local military infrastructure, and increasing affordable housing options for lowerand middle-income constituents.

Panetta is now working on bills to increase workforce housing and capital gains on the sales of homes and trying to pass the Farm Workforce Modernization Act at the Senate level.

Farther south, the 24th District that covers other parts of SLO County and Santa Barbara and Ventura counties appears to favor incumbent Carbajal. He got 61.3 percent of counted votes compared to his opponent Republican Brad Allen’s 38.7 percent.

In a written statement released on Nov. 9— the day after polls closed—Allen said he hoped the new Congress will find solutions to problems that are hurting people, just like he has “for over 40 years as a doctor.”

SLO city signals interest in selling recycled water to Edna Valley

Could San Luis Obispo’s wastewater help save Edna Valley agriculture?

That was the question of the night on Nov. 15 for the SLO City Council, which took a deep dive into the future of its recycled water program—including whether it wants to sell any “extra” water to Edna Valley to help neighboring farmers reduce their draw on groundwater.

By a 4-1 consensus (with Councilmember Jan Marx dissenting), the City Council agreed that it’d be a good use of city resources to explore short-term sales of recycled water to the Edna Valley region.

“I think there is a broad recognition of the economic and environmental benefits of having a successful agricultural community surrounding us,” Councilmember Andy Pease said at the Nov. 15 meeting.

“I am totally in favor of selling, as long as our needs are being met,” added Councilmember Carlyn Christianson. “Short-term support of green, agricultural land around us is a good investment while they [Edna Valley farmers]

“I am, of course, saddened by last night’s results. Being a pediatric heart surgeon, I still feel we need to start sending people with real-life experience to Washington, instead of continuing to send career politicians who seem only to follow their party’s ideology,” his statement read.

“Our campaign never used personal attacks but relied on facts and provided solutions to solve the district’s problems.”

The most pressing problem, according to Carbajal, is inflation.

“I have to keep working to make sure costs are brought down,” he told New Times. “Inflation is impacting the daily pocketbooks of families.”

He named other demanding issues like climate change, transitioning from fossil fuels to more renewable energy sources, improving the failing economy through job creation, and lowering the prices of prescription drugs. Carbajal rounded out the gallery of issues with a call to improve fundamental civil rights surrounding reproductive rights and the LGBTQ-plus community and providing immigration reform for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Now, Carbajal is working on a slew of bills including those that deal with offshore wind energy, awarding presumption of job hazard benefits to federal firefighters, child care tax credits for individuals and businesses, and

get their—let’s use a non-technical word—shit together and figure out what they’re going to do about the fact they have an overdrawn basin.”

In the long term, SLO city has ambitious plans for its wastewater. As part of a $111 million upgrade to its wastewater treatment plant, it plans to use advanced technology to treat the city’s sewage to levels that will eventually be suitable for drinking water.

But those plans are a ways off—at least eight years away—according to city officials, and currently the city produces more recycled water than it has uses for.

Right now, the city deploys it to help with landscape irrigation, construction dust control, and supplemental flow to the San Luis Obispo Creek (which is where any excess recycled water goes).

During the Nov. 15 meeting, city staff outlined more potential short-term uses for recycled water: like expanding irrigation at local parks, business parks, and residential common areas and offering water to farmers inside city limits.

But the potential to sell water outside of the city to Edna Valley—one of SLO County’s dominant wine regions—drew the lion’s share

retroactive compensation for those who faced sexual trauma while serving on the military.

“I am grateful, happy, and vindicated that the voters of the 24th congressional District have reaffirmed the work that I’ve done in Congress,” he said.

California had a roughly 39 percent voter turnout for the general election. While Panetta said, “any number below 100 percent isn’t satisfactory,” Carbajal told New Times that it was better than the 2017 turnout but worse than in 2018.

Does he think voters are disillusioned?

Some people are tired, Carbajal said.

“When you have the previous administration that continues to question the integrity of elections, I think some people are not participating as they did in the past,” he said. “It’s about reminding people of civic engagement and making sure that their views and values are represented with candidates at every level.” ∆

of the public’s attention and council discussion. Edna Valley growers have expressed interest in the city’s recycled water for more than a decade, according to George Donati, vice president of the Edna Valley Growers Mutual Water Company.

“In 2009, agricultural interests in the Edna Valley initiated discussions with the city to redirect the excess recycled water going to the ocean to instead go to the Edna Valley to supplement water resources,” Donati said in a public comment letter. “The city has long recognized the significance of the valley as part of [the] greenbelt to the city, which includes most irrigated land in the Edna Valley.”

According to Donati, in 2019, Edna Valley farmers put forward an offer to the city saying that farmers would be willing to pay for a pipeline to bring water to the valley “at no cost to the city” and “would take water only when it exceeded the city’s needs.”

The pandemic sidetracked those discussions, but Donati said that the project is more urgent than ever. The region is required by the state’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act to address its groundwater overpumping. State grant funds are available to help push a

potential project forward with application deadlines looming, he said.

SLO city officials have opted for a cautious approach. In the Nov. 15 council report, staff outlined a series of concerns about water sales to Edna Valley. Among them: Doing so could create new environmental habitats and expose the city to litigation to maintain those habitats. Another: Recycled water might be used to justify new residential or commercial development.

But a City Council majority felt that those concerns could be dealt with in contractual language. Mayor Erica Stewart said she was in favor of the shortterm recycled water sales as long as the pitfalls could be avoided.

“I think we want to make sure we’re doing two things at the same time, if we can, which is helping our general community and helping our neighbors in the agricultural community,” Stewart said. “And if we can do both, that’s an awesome experience.”

The idea had plenty of detractors, though. Several SLO residents submitted emails to the city objecting to the idea of sending any treated wastewater out of town. Councilmember Marx shared their perspective.

“I think city residents need to come first. I think that selling water outside of city limits would create a tremendous distraction for staff and our legal staff,” Marx said. “It would distract us from very important work that’s ahead, … and it would set a dangerous precedent.”

Marx said that the city should not feel obligated to “rescue the Edna Valley from their own lack of water conservation over the years,” and feared that any amicable agreements with farmers now could eventually turn sour down the road when the city no longer wants to sell recycled water.

“Why should the city take on additional risks in this particular situation? We’re going to build all this infrastructure, put this huge burden on our staff, and then we’ll say, ‘Oh well, sorry, now we need the water, you can’t have it,’” Marx said. “Because the drought is getting worse and worse and worse, … just when they [the farmers] need it the most is when the city will need it the most. And that’s when we’ll pull back. And that’s when the litigation will start.”

Glen Speck Elementary moves into renovated 17th Street campus

After years of negotiations, protests, and board meetings, Glen Speck Elementary School is moving into a brand new 17th Street campus, albeit temporarily.

Paso Robles High School sophomore Moeni Basurto said her younger brother was excited to learn that he and his classmates would finally be able to attend a proper school. Basurto told New Times that her brother had been waiting since he started kindergarten to move from a temporary facility back to the school’s original campus.

“He was actually happy, it’s like finally, I got my school—but only for two years, and then he got sad because it was only two years,” Basurto said. “I feel like they’ve been waiting for this so long, that I think that they finally deserve [the

school]. They [the board] should just take into consideration those kids that started off there and let them have the school.”

According to Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Superintendent Curt DuBost, Glen Speck students and staff will be moving into the new campus over winter break and will remain there for two years until the 36th Street campus is finished. Then, students at Glen Speck and Georgia Brown will switch, where Glen Speck will move to the smaller, renovated 36th Street campus and Georgia Brown will take over the 17th Street campus.

The school board made that decision earlier this year after protests to a plan that would have kept Glen Speck at the temporary school site until renovation at the 36th Street campus was finished. While Speck originally expected to move back into 17th Street permanently, enrollment numbers and a decision to keep Georgia Brown open changed that. The campus on 36th Street is smaller than the newly constructed campus on 17th Street, and Glen Speck is expected to have fewer students enrolled than Georgia Brown over the next several years.

“The thinking is that they need to be permitted to attend the site they helped to plan and expected to occupy permanently at least during the 18 months of construction. It was also considered fundamentally unfair if the Georgia Brown staff and students did not have to occupy the temp site at all, while the stay of Speck at the temp site was extended,” DuBost wrote in an email. “The prospect that Speck staff and students would never be able to occupy the new school they had been planning to attend also weighed heavily on the board.”

The grand opening of Glen Speck Elementary on 17th Street took place on Nov. 16, featuring a ribbon cutting ceremony and a tour of the facility. Constructed with funds from 2016’s Measure M, the new school features 12 new classrooms, a library, learning stairs, and the renovation of four existing classroom buildings. After teaching in portable classrooms for the past three years, Glen Speck teachers Terri Pearl and Rita Koski say that they’re both excited and grateful for any bit of time they can have in the new school.

“I think everybody would like to be back at Glen Speck’s original home, Bauer Speck, and that’s what was promised to the community,” Koski said. “It was a surprise to learn that we would be going to 36th Street, but in the meantime, we’re really thrilled to be back at the new campus where kids can have an equitable playground to use and beautiful classrooms. I think they’ve given up a lot of years to be in a portable school, and I think it’s equitable to be in a traditional school.”

Democrats lead in state Assembly District elections

The new 30th Assembly District is about to receive its first representative. The district—now covering the counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, and parts of San Luis Obispo—will see leadership from either Democrat Dawn Addis or Republican Vicki Nohrden.

Updated vote counts from all three counties showed Addis in the lead. With

almost 150,000 votes counted so far in the 30th District, current Morro Bay City Councilmember Addis holds the lion’s share at roughly 63 percent. Nohrden stood at 37 percent. County elections offices are still in the process of counting votes.

Addis received 54.2 percent, 67.7 percent, and 74.7 percent of tallied votes from SLO, Monterey, and Santa Cruz counties, respectively. The front-runner also soared in terms of campaign funding compared to her opponent.

Campaign finance data indicated that Addis raked in a little more than $1 million district-wide from the beginning of the year until Oct. 22. Nohrden brought in roughly $96,004 over the same time period.

“I ran for state Assembly because I believe that every child deserves a bright future, every person should have housing security and high quality health care, all people have a right to reproductive freedom, and our communities have a right to clean air and water,” Addis said in a statement announcing that she won the race.

On Nov. 9, the day after the general election, Nohrden’s office emailed a campaign newsletter titled “The race isn’t over yet … ,” asking for more donations.

“In one county, vote tallies do not even include ballots submitted Monday night, let alone in-person votes cast on Tuesday,” it read. “I need your help—we need funds to keep on top of county election reporting! There are so many moving pieces to protecting election integrity and EVERY VOTE COUNTS!”

An ordained minister and founder of a religious group called Wind and Fire Ministries, Nohrden wrote a book called Breaking the Shield of Minerva in 2008, where she called California’s natural disasters God’s punishment for progressive policies surrounding samesex marriage and reproductive rights.

Nohrden told New Times via email that she’s waiting for the final count of votes from all counties in the district. She did not comment on her book.

“Win or lose I believe every candidate who ran a campaign has the right to a fair and honest count of the election,” Nohrden wrote. “Maybe it’s time for the media to respect the vote as every vote counts, and discounting those who voted or mailed in their ballot is dishonoring.”

The 30th District race isn’t her first political campaign. Nohrden ran for the 29th Assembly District and 17th state Senate District in 2018 and 2020, respectively. She lost both times. Addis ran in 2020 for the previous iteration of the 30th District—then the 35th—but lost to Republican Jordan Cunningham.

She celebrated her early lead on the night of Nov. 8 at SLO’s Big Sky Café soon after the first set of counted votes were released.

Santa Barbara County 2nd District Supervisor Gregg Hart will have one last meeting as a county official on Nov. 29, and then he may be taking a seat up in Sacramento as the state’s 37th District Assembly member.

The district—made up of Santa Barbara and southern SLO counties— changed after the required redistricting process, pushing both candidates to run for office. Preliminary results show Hart in the lead with 58.5 percent of the district’s votes and his opponent, Mike Stoker, with 41.5 percent.

Hart celebrated election night with

his 92-year-old mother and his son at a victory party with 300 people in attendance, he said.

“I was overwhelmed with the enthusiastic support of the people in the room,” Hart said. “I think it reflects the hard work I’ve been doing in local government, and reflects the respectful, civil way that I do my job.”

Hart pulled ahead in Santa Barbara with 59.3 percent of the votes (72,357 votes) and Stoker earned 40.7 percent (49,687 votes), according to preliminary election results data. However, in SLO County, Stoker took the lead with 52.7 percent (4,322 votes) with Hart right behind at 47.3 percent (3,873 votes).

“It’s very important to count every vote, and I look forward to getting the final results, but my lead is significant. I’m not slowing down, I’m going straight to work, and I’m excited to represent the residents,” Hart said.

According to the Santa Barbara County Clerk-Recorder’s Office on Nov. 15, there’s still an estimated 12,330 unprocessed ballots.

SLO County to request extension on Bob Jones Trail grant

The Bob Jones Trail extension project is facing delays due to property acquisition challenges, and San Luis Obispo County plans to ask the state for a longer timeline to spend a $18.2 million grant—which would push the project out to 2027.

SLO County received a coveted state transportation grant for the 4.4-mile trail connector in July 2021. Around that time, the county sued a property owner along the proposed path, Ray Bunnell, after he refused to allow access to his land for soilboring tests necessary to design one of the trail’s bridges.

A few months later, four property owners along the trail path, including Bunnell, filed a lawsuit asserting that they had no interest in donating or selling easements for the trail and that the county intended to take their property under eminent domain.

That legal slog has set the county back on the project, according to court filings.

“Unfortunately, this process has taken longer than anticipated,” county attorneys wrote in an Oct. 26 court update on the case. “[The county] completed the survey and geotechnical boring work at Mr. Bunnell’s property on or around April 29, 2022. Respondents began preparing the requisite legal descriptions and proposed easement agreements for the property it seeks to acquire.”

The next step, the attorneys wrote, is to hire appraisers to assign fair market value to the property easements. That work is expected to wrap up in May 2023 and will serve as a starting point for final negotiations.

“[The county] will be seeking an extension of its grant funding deadlines to comport with this new estimated schedule, as appropriate,” the court filing stated.

Nick Franco, the SLO County Parks and Recreation director, told New Times that the county will submit an extension request to the state next spring, “when we have a better idea of the timeline.”

That would push the deadline to spend the grant out from 2025 to 2027. Franco said he’s confident that the California

News NEWS from page 4 NEWS continued page 7 6 • New Times • November 17 - 24, 2022 • www.newtimesslo.com

Transportation Commission will approve the request.

“Having delays for right-of-way/ easement acquisition is not unusual for transportation projects and similar extensions are frequently granted, so we expect the California Transportation Commission to approve the extension,” Franco said by email.

According to court documents, the county and the four property owners have agreed to pause the litigation until or unless the county adopts a “resolution of necessity” for the easements—the first formal step to eminent domain.

Two supervisors, 1st District Supervisor John Peschong and 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold, said they would not support using eminent domain for the Bob Jones Trail.

An attorney representing the property owners did not return a New Times request for comment before press time.

Cambria CSD’s general manager resigns abruptly

Board members of the Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) were left scrambling to fill the general manager position after the John Weigold abruptly announced his resignation on Nov. 13.

In his letter to the board, Weigold explained his decision to resign after three years on the job: He’s engaged and will be moving to the Santa Barbara area.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the knowledge and experience I have gained by working with you, the board, and staff at the district,” Weigold wrote. “I am very grateful for the time I have spent on our team and the professional relationships I’ve built. It’s been a pleasure working for you, and I hope our paths will cross again in the future.”

While Weigold’s official last day was Nov. 15, public calls for his resignation echoed throughout Cambria, particularly during the Nov. 10 CCSD board meeting. During closed session, the board conducted a performance evaluation of the general manager. While no action was taken at that meeting, Claudia Harmon Worthen urged the board to fire Weigold.

“When faced with challenges, Mr. Weigold, in lieu of experience, hired consultants to create reports and perform studies that he should have written or overseen. He has proposed hiring a fulltime assistant to do his daily tasks,” Worthen wrote in a letter to the board. “He attends policy committee meetings, but does not participate, even though his advice or clarification is often needed.”

Weigold’s decision to hire Cambria’s newest fire chief has been contested by many Cambrians, such as Gail Stevens and Robert Fountain, who felt that the hiring reflected Weigold’s lack of communication and management skills.

“Mr. Weigold is often very late in providing needed and timely information to both the board and the public, in order for them to assess and

determine the proper approach for the CCSD,” Stevens and Fountain wrote in a public comment letter. “The absence of proper information for the evaluation and hiring of the new fire chief was shameful, and an indication of his poor communication and management skills with both the board and the public.”

They also called out Weigold’s slow progress on getting a coastal development permit for Cambria’s water reclamation facility.

“Rather than working cooperatively with those agencies toward the coastal development permit application for the [water facility], Mr. Weigold consistently showed a lack of cooperation,” they wrote. “Required environmental studies have been routinely put on the back burner for years, despite that such studies often take a year or more to complete.”

Due to the sudden departure of Weigold, the CCSD held a special meeting on Nov. 16 where board members answered questions from the public regarding the process to select Weigold’s successor.

“The board has broad discretion to choose whoever they feel qualified to hold that acting general manager position, so the sky’s the limit,” said District Counsel Timothy Carmel.

Once the board had answered questions from the public, they went into closed session and unanimously chose Ray Dienzo, CCSD engineer, as the acting general manager.

Local election races stand pat after Nov. 15 count

San Luis Obispo County tallied another 20,000 ballots in the general election on Nov. 15—pushing turnout to 50 percent— but the latest count didn’t change much in the local races.

Except for one seat in a North County school board race, the same candidates who led after a Nov. 11 count also led after the Nov. 15 count.

A total of 91,696 ballots had been tallied in the election as of New Times’ press time, and 27,320 ballots are still left to count. SLO County did not post the date of its next count before our press time.

The Nov. 15 update showed Matt Allison jumping ahead of Jennifer Grinager for second place in a race for two seats on the Templeton Unified School District board. He led Grinager by 22 votes, or 0.33 percent. Janel Armet was still in first place in that race.

Bruce Gibson kept his lead over Bruce Jones in the contest for 2nd District county supervisor—but the incumbent lost some ground. Gibson’s vote share dipped from 53.5 percent in the Nov. 11 count to 52.1 percent after the Nov. 15 count. Gibson led Jones by 781 votes.

Several races remained too close to call, including at Cuesta College, where Adrienne Garcia-Specht cut into Peter Sysak’s lead in the race for a seat on the board of trustees—but Sysak still had a 51 percent to 49 percent edge. ∆ —Peter Johnson

Teed up for troops

In

“We had quite a bit of mistakes last year; none of us had ever played in a golf tournament. None of us had even really played golf,” Tolan recalled. “There was never a golf tournament [for veterans] on the Central Coast, and we just decided to go for it.”

After overselling last year’s event and learning from their mistakes, the two organizations hosted another sold-out Tee it Up for Veterans golf tournament at the Santa Maria Country Club followed by a dinner and live auction on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. The tournament had raised more than $90,000 as of Nov. 14, according to Tolan.

During the pandemic, Band of Brothers and Welcome Home were two of the only organizations offering vets services, and funds were running thin, Tolan said. They decided to hold a golf tournament because it could raise a lot of funds to continue operating.

“The other reason is we knew a golf tournament would bring in a completely different crowd: people who didn’t know about Welcome Home or Band of Brothers. It was a mission to expand out to individuals who never heard of us, and let them know what’s going on in the veteran community,” he said.

Band of Brothers is a Santa Mariabased organization that offers a house for homeless veterans and sports clubs where veterans can travel and play against other sports teams, Tolan said. Welcome Home primarily operates in SLO County and offers welcome home packages for all military members returning from deployment, military member care packages, and veteran funeral services.

Tolan and Stone met while playing in a veterans softball league and Stone asked if he wanted to collaborate with Band of Brothers, Tolan said.

“Welcome Home and Band of Brothers have worked together in the past. [We] put

up flag poles for free, and replaced about 500 flags in the last two years,” he added.

The 2022 tournament beat 2021 in fundraising. During last year’s tournament, Tolan said they raised $25,000 for each organization—the largest donation received in Band of Brothers’ history.

“Anything over $25,000 is amazing for both organizations,” Tolan said.

Although the tournament is over, Tolan added that sharing the organizations on social media is a helpful way to get their messages out to the public and promote future events—which can be found on their respective websites and Facebook pages.

“It’s great for all our members, especially our veterans on Veterans Day, [to be] with a bunch of people having fun. It’s an absolutely gorgeous and overall fun event,” Tolan said. “The planning is hard and it’s been long, but the day of the event is absolutely a blast.”

Neglected disabilities

Iremember how things were when the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed in 1990.

People with physical disabilities could not get on buses because they couldn’t climb the stairs or the bus couldn’t carry a wheelchair. It was hard to cross city streets because there were no curb cuts. Those with hearing impairments received no help with phone calls, and there were no flashing lights in buildings to indicate whether there was a fire. Employers were not required to accommodate the needs of those with challenges of any kind, and job discrimination against such people was rampant. Stores, hotels, restaurants and movie theaters, for example, had spaces that were not accessible. The automatic doors that we see everywhere today did not exist.

Obviously, we have come a long way, right? Maybe not.

The ADA is usually thought of in terms of physical disabilities but mental impairments are neglected. The ADA defines a covered disability as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a history of having such an impairment, or being regarded as having such an impairment.”

People who have cognitive deficits are

now required to perform tasks online that may be difficult or impossible and may be denied access to businesses and even health care. Really? Yes, really. For example, my local CVS now has only selfcheckout with no employees who can ring up a sale. Most of us can handle that, but some cannot. Folks with early Alzheimer’s disease or with severe Down syndrome are capable of going to CVS and picking up shampoo, but they may not be able to use the self-checkout.

Another example: People with mental disabilities may encounter a requirement that all medical information needed prior to a first appointment with a doctor must be submitted through an online portal with multiple links to multiple forms, and this task is beyond their abilities.

I recently experienced this problem myself. A local doctor’s office asked me to complete a number of forms online through a patient portal. I managed to get some done correctly but could not access others. I am not as competent online as I was even five years ago, so I asked if I could come in before my first appointment to fill out the required forms. The answer was no. I then asked to have the forms faxed to me and was again told no

I could not see the doctor unless I could

manage to do everything online. I had asked for “reasonable accommodation” and was shocked to be refused, especially by a health professional! Denied treatment by this doctor, I was forced to look elsewhere for help, somewhere that offered me the chance to fill out the forms by hand.

as ‘bricks vs. clicks’), seeks to expand the ADA’s authority to cyberspace.”

I could bring a lawsuit because I was denied access to a care provider, but I am not really seeking the publicity or a financial award. I simply want to make people in our community—be they store owners, medical professionals, hotels,

Avoid a holiday tragedy

The holiday season comes with family gatherings, social time with friends, and office parties. These events can lead to life-altering consequences, like drunken driving.

When I was 16 years old in 1992, a drunken driver hit me. I had a fourmonth coma, broken bones, paralysis, and brain injuries. My gait and speech are affected, and I lost my driving and

hearing abilities. For 30-plus years, I have read lips and cannot enjoy holiday music anymore.

I always loved the music of the holiday season. “Holiday Traditions: Vocal Arts Ensemble Concert” at the CPAC at Cuesta College on Dec. 11 would be one I would not miss. Unfortunately, I am unable to hear holiday music well. Drunken drivers injure lives in many ways, and I know.

Planning to take Highway 1 to attend a holiday gathering? Make the smart decisions now if you plan to drink: Don’t drive drunk. Law enforcement and I urge you to have a sober friend, taxi, etc., drive you to and from this location.

My message to drive sober will never get old because it saves lives. Having a sober driver is a perfect way to begin 2023. Happy Holidays.

These represent a major potential expansion of the ADA in that this, and other similar suits (known

The Paso Basin Land Use Management Area Planting Ordinance—understandably often shorthanded as PBLUMA—is now slouching toward the SLO County Board of Supervisors after receiving a beat-down from the county Planning Commission of a kind seldom seen in these parts.

Here’s a taste from their recommendation of rejection: “The benefits of the proposed planting ordinance do not outweigh the significant unavoidable impacts identified in the environmental impact report. … Increased groundwater extractions facilitated by the proposed planting ordinance risk the State Water Resources Control Board taking over the groundwater sustainability plan process if sustainability is not achieved.”

At this point, even the legendary arrogance of this board may not be enough to scale Mount PBLUMA, a pinnacle of environmental ignorance that tries to solve a problem by ignoring a bigger one and would trigger a landslide of unintended but obvious consequences.

Faithful followers of this column may recall this “disaster in waiting” from its cameo appearance in my September installment on the deficient Paso Basin Groundwater Sustainability Plan (Time’s up, Sept. 15), which noted that the planting ordinance, as created by Supervisors Debbie Arnold, Lynn Compton, and John Peschong, “will greatly expand pumping rights for ag zoned land in the basin via a permit to pump up to 25 acre-feet of water per year for new plantings.”

Or as the environmental impact report prepared for the draft ordinance put it: “The proposed planting ordinance would decrease groundwater supplies such that sustainable groundwater management of the Paso Robles sub basin would be impeded.”

Oops. Well then, “mitigation measures” are necessary, a thankless task for the environmental consultants. But not the kind of measures that might, you know, fix the problem while also possibly impacting the profits of economic interests or otherwise impeding the smooth flow of commerce. Just the kind of mitigations that make it look like something is being mitigated (“for the life of the project, maintain the unpaved roads, driveways, and/or parking area with a dust suppressant”) but don’t touch the reality of the increased drawdown of an overdrafted basin. Because tomorrow never comes.

As it turned out, the economic interests the board majority was catering to hated those mitigations. And environmentalists and resource agencies hated everything else. And we all let the Planning Commission know it. Perhaps the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said it best, echoing the environmental impact report: “We are perplexed that the county would consider adopting an ordinance that could severely impact steelhead and its critical habitat and impede sustainable groundwater management.”

Whether they ignore their planning commissioners and put their ordinance on the books so a future board can kill it, or they bow to reality, letting it die quickly and simply extending the current 1:1 water use offset program until the groundwater sustainability plan is in

place, this board’s legacy is secure. This is the board that slavishly serves the interests of the off-road vehicle lobby at the Oceano Dunes, gave a platform to delusional charges of voter fraud in the 2020 election, withheld the benefits of community choice energy from county residents, eliminated the position of climate action program manager (because problem solved), tried to violate the state law governing the creation of subdivisions (before the Sierra Club put a stop to that), lobbied Sacramento with a shopping list of voter suppression measures, drove the nail in the coffin of affordable housing by repealing the county’s inclusionary housing ordinance, and gerrymandered the supervisorial districts in an attempt to secure permanent minority rule.

They are not shy.

The Sierra Club has long been proud to be a thorn in their sides. At the meeting where the board majority finalized its gerrymandering plan, Supervisor Compton name-checked us from the dais for our annoying habit of persuading people to stand up and be counted in large numbers opposing things Supervisor Compton wants to do, or in favor of things she doesn’t. Before he ascended to the board, when Peschong was using his Tribune column to paint an imaginary scary picture of the future Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary and its ban on offshore drilling, we pointed to his oil-soaked curriculum vitae. (“Even I am not immune to mockery,” he wrote in response.)

Now the ruling troika of Peschong, Compton, and Arnold—attempting to ignore the reality of a vanishing groundwater basin and go in the opposite direction of the state of California and the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act—is caught in a bear trap.

Several aphorisms come to mind:

• Droughts don’t play politics.

• Nature bats last.

• The economy is a wholly owned subsidiary of the environment.

This board has been a cautionary tale. This is what happens when elected officials care a lot about politics and power but have no use for sensible land use planning. Gerrymandering, yes; a sustainable water supply, not so much.

The public hearing on the Paso Basin Land Use Management Area Planting Ordinance will be heard before the County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Let your voice be heard. ∆

Itotally get Republicans and their suspicions of election fraud. Really, I do. They’re so sure their ideas are superior and held by the majority that they simply can’t conceive of there being enough liberal voters to beat their candidates and policies in a fair race. I get them because I was them.

In 2016, when Donald Trump became U.S. president, I thought, “Surely there aren’t enough backwards, ignorant, sycophantic, knuckle-dragging troglodytes in America to elect this sexist, racist, xenophobic, anti-intellectual Oompa Loompa to the highest office.”

Technically, it turns out I was correct. If it wasn’t for the outdated, unnecessary, and unfair Electoral College system, Hillary Clinton would have been president with her extra 3 million popular votes, but I believe in democracy and accepted that tRump was the legitimate president.

Now if only Republicans could realize that America’s voters have rejected their election denialism, their voter fraud nonsense, and their anti-government rhetoric, maybe they could decide whether they want to adjust their ideology to gain more of the electorate or if they, you know, would rather cling dogmatically to their failed ideas and drift into complete irrelevance.

I know what the Republican Party of San Luis Obispo (RPSLO) has decided to do. On their Facebook page, their updated cover photo is a Fox News shot of tRump announcing his 2024 presidential run. Maybe they haven’t heard the horrible

wheezing sound emanating from the dying MAGA movement or noticed a tRump endorsement is the kiss of death.

If you need a few laughs, scroll down the RPSLO feed. They reposted a meme that reads “PENNSYLVANIA VOTERS REELECT DEAD DEMOCRAT STATE REPRESENTATIVE” under the comment “What is going on in PA!!”

I guess what’s going on is Pennsylvania voters prefer a dead Democrat over a living Republican. State Rep. Tony DeLuca died a month before the election, but his name was already printed on the ballot. It’s not a conspiracy, and tinfoil looks weird on your head.

Also, cue paranoia with this RPSLO post: “Although more ballots remain to be counted, some have manifested which are clearly a mistake. Darcia Stebbens tells KPRL several people in the North County received primary election ballots in October. If you receive a ballot which was not a general election ballot, you’re advised to turn it in to the Republican Party headquarters, so that Darcia can present all of them to the election office.”

Huh? Stebbens was the lady who demanded a recount of the 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton loss to Jimmy Paulding, the new supe. The recount revealed the original tabulation was 100 percent accurate.

Also on RPSLO’s Facebook page is the hilarious meme depicting an older Black woman who’s covered in “I Voted” stickers under the banner “Democrats leaving the polls on Election Day.” Hmm. Accusing Democrats of cheating at the polls by voting more than once? I thought Dems cheated using Dominion vote tabulators and mail-in ballots. I guess your conspiracy now includes volunteer citizen poll workers cheating on Democrats’ behalf. Weird that more and more people think Republicans are wacko.

Come on, RPSLO! Be original instead of just parroting all the crazy conspiracies dreamed up by the ultra-cuckoo wing of your party!

And speaking of ultra-cuckoo, Vicki “I’ve Been Ordained by God” Nohrden—the lady who wrote a 2008 book claiming California drought and wildfires are God’s punishment for legalizing gay marriage and allowing abortion—is clearly hoping for a Christmas miracle in her race against Dawn Addis for the 30th District Assembly seat. New Times reporter Bulbul Rajagopal reached out to Nohrden for comment on her race—as reporters are wont to do.

Speak up!

results that show her trailing Addis by more than 25 points districtwide, Nohrden scolded Rajagopal for doing her job.

“Win or lose, I believe every candidate who ran a campaign has the right to a fair and honest count of the election,” Nohrden retorted, even though no one is arguing candidates shouldn’t. “Maybe it’s time for the media to respect the vote [boldface Nohrden’s] as every vote counts, and discounting those who voted or mailed in their ballot is dishonoring.

“The counties have until Nov. 15 to receive postmarked ballots from Nov. 7 voting by mail while the media uses its platform to call races,” Nohrden continued. “I believe that is both dishonoring and disrespectful. Be a leader, Bulbul, and stand up for what’s right.”

Send us your views and opinion to letters@newtimesslo.com.

Hey Vicki, New Times isn’t calling the election in Addis’ favor, though honestly, you’d need a lot of the uncounted votes to overcome her lead. It’s math, after all. Instead of rebuking a journalist who’s giving you an opportunity to voice your opinion on the state of your race, why don’t you be a leader and show a little grace in what appears to be your impending defeat.

“As per our last correspondence, you mentioned that you’d be available to comment on the AD30 race and your book after the elections concluded,” Rajagopal emailed. “I understand the preliminary results are out and votes are still being updated. I’d be grateful to speak with you.”

Instead of commenting on preliminary

I have a feeling that if you were in the lead, you might have a comment or two to share with the public about God’s will. By the way, Addis already claimed victory. She apparently understands math. ∆

Each December for the past halfcentury, the 1,300-foot-high Cerro San Luis mountain in central SLO suddenly gets 60 feet taller—and brighter— with the arrival of a towering Christmas “tree” of lights that sparkles at its peak.

For the past 23 years, SLO County can thank one man for keeping the tradition going strong: Madonna Inn Senior Maintenance Engineer Ted Sabatini.

“I started putting that tree up in my 30s … and now I’m in my 60s,” Sabatini told New Times with a laugh. “And they were putting it up long before I came along.”

The tradition dates back to the 1970s. Cerro San Luis peak is technically the property of the Madonna Inn. One year, famous hoteliers Alex and Phyllis Madonna felt extra festive and decided that the mountain needed some holiday décor—kicking off the now-beloved tradition.

When Sabatini took over the holiday duties in 1999, he said the tree was in its “second generation” of design, which had some flaws.

“In the mid ’90s, it was made out of aluminum and it was a big, long fly rod,” he said, chuckling. “That finally blew over like three times in one season, and the following season, I went to Mr. Madonna and asked him if I could redesign the tree.”

Sabatini’s third-generation tree uses stacked aluminum lighting trusses—like what you see on concert stages—to create a more stable “trunk,” which gets securely bolted to a steel pole on the peak. Then, lights are threaded through and pinned down around the truss in the shape of a Christmas tree.

“In homage to the old tree, I cut off the top of the old tree [and put it on top of the truss],” Sabatini said. “It’s been very reliable. It hasn’t blown down in the 18 years since I changed the design.”

Installing the tree each winter is a team effort that involves the help about three or four other Madonna Inn workers. Sabatini said he targets Dec. 1 for the ceremonial undertaking—weather permitting.

“I put the whole tree on my pickup truck,” he said. “We drive it up to the stage [at the peak], offload it there, and hike it up the very top. There are more than 1,000 light bulbs and we kind of run the strands up like a flagpole, trying to raise it up without breaking any lightbulbs. And you have about 20 hikers watching you.”

Each evening in December, Sabatini drives up the mountaintop himself to turn the diesel generator that powers the lights on, inspecting the tree beforehand for broken or stolen lightbulbs.

Community anticipation for the tree always amazes Sabatini. He usually gets calls in October and November from residents asking when it will be up and lit. During December, locals won’t hesitate to let him know if they can’t see the tree. Usually, it’s because of cloud cover, he said.

“People will be calling my wife,” he said, laughing. “She has friends who are nurses who drive to work at 4 a.m. They’ll call her and say, ‘I came to work and the tree isn’t lit!’”

Even though it can be grueling work, Sabatini said he doesn’t take for granted the important role he plays in helping the community celebrate the holidays and carry on a tradition.

“It is very cool. I’m very honored to do it,” he said. “When I go up on Christmas Eve to light the tree, usually there’s a bunch of people sitting up there waiting for the tree to be lit. I’ll find the youngest kid up there and ask him if he wants to light the tree, to throw the switch. I tell them the whole story: ‘Now you’re one of a very small number of people to light the tree.’ Usually there’s a lot of pictures being taken.

“That really is the most fun part of putting the tree up, is doing that on Christmas Eve.”

While Sabatini doesn’t know how many more winters he has left at the helm of the tree tradition, or who will carry on the mantle after him, he can’t imagine it ever going away. With the city of SLO recently “legalizing” winter night hiking on Cerro San Luis (just don’t forget to reserve a permit beforehand—it’s required), locals will again make the trek this December to catch an up-close glimpse of the towering lights.

“I think it’s cool that they do it as long as they’re respectful—who’s not going to see the ball drop in Times Square?” Sabatini said. “That’s our ball. That’s our tradition.” ∆

Somebody somewhere thought it would be a good idea to stuff a deboned chicken inside of a deboned duck inside of a deboned turkey. Who? That’s somewhat open to debate. Why? Why not. When?

According to late celebrity chef Paul Prudhomme, a Louisiana legend, the “who” was he, and the “when” was in the late ’60s when he worked at a Sheraton Hotel buffet carving station in Wyoming.

What’s not in dispute is that Prudhomme trademarked the name “turducken” in 1986 and featured the recipe in his 1987 cookbook, The Prudhomme Family Cookbook: OldTime Louisiana Recipes by the Eleven Prudhomme Brothers and Sisters and Chef Paul Prudhomme, later putting the dish on the menu at K-Paul, his New Orleans restaurant.

But hold your horses stuffed with donkeys stuffed with Shetland ponies because two other Louisianans—brothers Junior (now retired) and Sammy Hebert, who own Hebert’s Specialty Meats, a butcher shop in Maurice—claimed to have invented it in 1984 (before Prudhomme took credit for the dish) when a farmer requested to have a chicken, duck, and turkey stuffed inside of each other. Hebert’s still sells turduckens—about 3,500 a year, mostly during holiday time.

But wait a cotton-pickin’ minute stuffed with seconds stuffed with nanoseconds because Gourmet Butcher Block has its own story, this one featuring former Cal Poly football player turned pro football coach turned sportscaster John Madden (There’s the local connection you’ve been waiting for!), who supposedly gets credit for turning the turducken from a Louisiana oddity into a national craze.

Apparently, Gourmet Butcher Block owner Glenn Mistich, who’s married to the Heberts’ sister, Leah, and whose label is called Goldbelly, presented “the original turducken” to Madden before the RamsSaints game on Dec. 1, 1996, and Madden went bonkers for it, praising it relentlessly during the broadcast and igniting the Turducken Fever that’s been sweeping the nation ever since … well, sort of.

I mean, have you ever tasted a turducken? I’ve heard of it but never seen one in person, much less put it in my mouth hole.

Naturally, I turned to social media to ask friends about their turducken experiences. Etta Mae Maino told me her “entire family has mocked it for years,” so she was precisely zero help. But another friend, Samuel Gauna, ordered it twice for Thanksgiving: “The best one is the only one I really remember. It had pork sausage stuffing between each layer. It was absolutely amazing.”

Kelly Lewis loved his turducken experience: “Yes! My friend Kathy invited me to her home in Morro Bay Heights. Her friend had come from Kentucky with, reportedly, ‘The best turducken in the world.’ That was the occasion. Nowhere near Thanksgiving. It was moist and tasty AF!”

Cody Hartwell said he “did one with jam instead of duck. Fantastic!”

Former Louisianan Michael McGee explained, “We ordered turducken for a gourmet dinner many years ago. It was OK, but I didn’t feel it justified the cost. Also, it fell apart trying to slice it.

Anne-Marie Strohman admitted, “Not a turducken, but we did have a ‘PieCaken” once, at Thanksgiving or Christmas, I think, just because my husband thought it would be fun.”

Now I know what I’ll write about next year—a donut stuffed in a croissant stuffed in a pie stuffed in a cake. But I digress.

It’s easy to order a turducken. Hebert’s ships them nationwide as does Goldbelly and other retailers. They ain’t cheap. Hebert’s “regular” turducken starts at

$119 and comes “standard” with two layers of pork dressing and one layer of cornbread dressing. For ten bucks extra, you can add three layers of crawfish dressing, shrimp dressing, cornbread dressing, or rice dressing. Goldbelly’s “The All-Madden Turducken” will set you back $199.95. They sell about 5,000 a year! I hope Madden’s estate gets a kickback.

So, who should really get credit (or the blame) for the turducken? The truth is people have been stuffing one animal inside of another for a while now. It’s called engastration, and it’s been taken to outlandish extremes. The turducken? Child’s play!

Allow me to introduce you to rôti sans pareil—the roast without equal—created by French gastronomist Alexandre Balthazar Laurent Grimod de la Reynière in the 1807 cookbook L’almanach des gourmands. Rôti sans pareil stuffs 17

birds inside each other: a bustard, chicken, duck, garden warbler, goose, guinea fowl, lapwing, lark, ortolan bunting, partridge, pheasant, plover, quail, teal, thrush, turkey, and woodcock … plus all this other stuff like an olive stuffed with an anchovy stuffed with a single caper, plus pork stuffing—it’s ridiculous! Exactly 18 animals have to die to make it. So go ahead, get your turducken. There are weirder dishes out there. ∆

Movie meltdown

The world’s all doom and gloom these days. With the midterm elections somewhat behind us (not really) and the days getting shorter, sometimes it’s best to curl up on the couch and judge the denizens of a quaint small town as their holiday woes play out on-screen.

Holiday movies are formulaic: They’re almost always set in a frigid ski town; most of the characters work at a failing but charming business like a bakery or a bed and breakfast; and the cast will include one famous celebrity and another actor who’ll make you ask, “Where have I seen them before?”

Want a bad movie so good, it’ll help that seasonal sadness a little? Check this list out.

Pumpkin Pie Wars (2016)

Who said holiday movies always had to be Christmas-centric? Fall is here for you thanks to Pumpkin Pie Wars, available on Peacock TV. Emeryville, Ohio, baking best buds Faye McArthy and Lydia Harper’s friendship ends in a spat at the annual pumpkin pie contest. Lydia is about to open a bakery with her dad’s help and wasn’t going to bring Faye along! Ten years later, the feud continues while both women run competing bakeries. Now, they have two grown kids of their own ready to carry on the pumpkin pie rivalry. But what happens when Faye’s daughter and Lydia’s son start falling for each other?

Baking puns, poor imitations of Martha Stewart, and easily solvable miscommunications, that’s what. It’s a fun flick to laugh at with a friend if you don’t want to think about Christmas until December.

Single All the Way (2021)

Michael Urie (of Ugly Betty fame) plays Peter, a single man in Los

Angeles who’s been burned by the dating scene. After his plan to bring his boyfriend home for Christmas combusts, he drags along his best friend Nicholas to meet his New Hampshire family. Peter’s plot to make Nicholas his fake boyfriend backfires when his mom (Kathy Najimy) sets him up on a blind date. Will Peter finally find love? Will he realize true love is right in front of him? Switch on Netflix to find out!

Single All the Way still has all the tropes of a holiday movie but Urie, Najimy, and Jennifer Coolidge are a fun cast who make the watching experience more bearable. It’s also refreshing to see romantic pairs who aren’t your run-ofthe-mill white, blond, bland duo.

Falling for Christmas (2022)

Lindsay Lohan is acting again and chose a holiday movie for her comeback!

She plays Sierra Belmont, and the name alone should tell you she’s a spoiled, rich hotel heiress. Sierra and her snooty fiancé go skiing in a blizzard, and she falls off a cliff. She suffers memory loss, but don’t worry! Handsome and humble bed-and-breakfast owner Jake (Chord Overstreet of Glee fame) finds her unconscious, and she regains her memory while living with him. Turn to Netflix and guess what happens next in this predictable story.

Falling for Christmas banks on Lohan to make it a hit. There’s even a big Mean Girls reference in the movie. It might have worked. IndieWire wondered if the movie was “Lohan’s Citizen Kane.” That’s a bit of a stretch. But if you want more Lohan, Netflix is happy to provide. She’ll next be seen on Irish Wish— a St. Patrick’s Day-themed flick. I’m positively giddy.

Die Hard (1988)

Sick of the saccharine of other holiday movies? Temper it with 1980s grit.

I’m not even going to debate whether Die Hard is a holiday movie. I’ll just say you’re wrong if you don’t think it is. No holiday movie list is complete without Bruce Willis and gratuitous shots of his bare feet on glass!

NYPD officer John McClane (Willis) tries to save his wife and her colleagues who have been taken hostage by German terrorist Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) at a Christmas party in Los Angeles’ fictional Nakatomi Plaza. Strap in for two hours of yippee ki-yay glory. ∆

f the icing on your sugar cookie tree cutout doesn’t really scream “Christmas tree,” it’s time to turn to that shaker full of green, red, and white sprinkles.

“When all else fails, sprinkles make everything look good and hide a world of sins,” Arty McGoo, aka Liz Adams, said with a laugh.

Almost everything Adams creates looks good. A quick scroll through the Arty McGoo Instagram page will tell you all you need to know about what kind of cookies to expect from her—posh, playful, exquisitely designed. And the best part is that Adams wants to help you do the same.

Her creations aren’t really for sale, but her knowledge is. She teaches cookie decorating classes in person at Studios on the Park once a month, online via McGoo U, and takes them on tour to places around the world.

Arty McGoo’s next in-person workshop is a beginning cookie decorating class on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Studios on the Park, where students will learn to create a gingerbread house and Christmas tree. Everything is there, ready for aspiring decorators to use, and Adams will go step-by-step through every

little detail and design element.

“People come in and say, ‘I could never make that,’ and then they leave with something similar,” Adams said. “It’s really a bonding experience to create with people.”

Helping people craft something they didn’t believe they could make is the most rewarding part of her work. It’s why she started teaching people 10 years ago, and why she continues to do it today.

Adams used to be a “hobby hopper,” she said, painting, drawing, taking photographs. When she found cookies, it encompassed so many of her hobbies that it kind of took over. Cookies fulfill a lot of her need to create: She draws inspiration from everywhere, plans and designs the set, thinks about the colors, arranges them, photographs them, and then teaches others how to make them.

“I feel like cookies are a really personal way to gift someone something,” she said. “And it fits for everything.”

If you can’t make it to an in-person class, McGoo U online classes are subscription-based with either a monthly or yearly subscription. Both receive the same five monthly videos. While yearly subscribers have access to everything Adams has ever recorded, monthly subscribers can only watch the current month’s videos.

The more you learn, the more you can communicate with those slightly crunchy, slightly soft treats, Adams added, admitting with a laugh that cookies will take over your life.

While it may seem daunting at first, anyone can start decorating with what they have in their kitchen, she said. Toothpicks and zip-top bags are all you

really need in addition to the cookies themselves and royal icing.

Approximately 99 percent of what Adams adorns her edible art with is royal icing. The consistency of that icing, how wet it is, will dictate how enjoyable your decorating time is. To glue a gingerbread house together, you might need a thicker product, but by adding water to the icing, you can use it to fill in the top of a cookie.

“You make almost anything into a cookie, absolutely anything,” she said.

“Like little edible canvases.” ∆

Footrace before feasting

to the turkey trot with her family and dog, Sadie.

healthy Thanksgiving traditions

Thanksgiving mornings start a bit differently in the Gray household.

By 8 a.m., New Times Sales Manager Katy Gray and her family are usually assembled at Pismo Beach, ready to participate in the SLO Food Bank’s annual Turkey Trot along with hundreds of other families. They’ve been doing turkey trots on and off over the course of the past decade. A typical Thanksgiving morning starts off with Gray preparing for the holiday dinner before heading over

“You get so much more out of it than you expect, because you start your day outside with a nice walk with friends or family and a whole bunch [of the] community. It starts your day feeling grateful from the get-go before even the craziness of Thanksgiving starts,” Gray said. “So that’s kind of nice to just have a little moment of a walk and relaxation and community and friends.”

I know what you may be thinking: Whose brilliant idea was it to run a race on a Thursday morning? Blame the people of Buffalo, New York. Legend has it that the first trot was the brainchild of the YMCA there, where six runners ran a 8 kilometer race on a dirt road in 1896.

The tradition has since gained traction across the nation, spreading from coast to coast. While the prospect of running on Thanksgiving morning is still puzzling to some, Running USA reports that Thanksgiving is the most popular running day in the country.

But the turkey trot isn’t necessarily a serious run. Some participants don turkey

costumes or pilgrim outfits, a tradition that started in the early 1980s when some turkey trotters dressed up as Canadian hockey players.

“When you get there, ... there’s sometimes a live turkey walking around on a leash, which is weird,” Gray chuckled. “And some people are dressed up with turkey hats.”

Many local organizations use the holiday tradition as a way to raise money for a good cause, such as providing food, clothing, shelter, and gifts to less fortunate families. The SLO Food Bank’s annual Turkey Trot puts the money raised toward providing families in need with holiday proteins, including turkeys, hams, and chickens, as well as hundreds of thousands of pounds of other nutritious foods, such as produce and shelf-stable goods. ∆

Deserved acclaim

All too often when you hear the name Julia Morgan, it’s proceeded by “woman architect,” but a new book about the Hearst Castle designer aims to reframe how we consider Morgan. She’s not merely a “woman architect,” an oddity in a male profession— she’s a visionary who has no need of the “woman” qualifier because she’s among the best regardless of gender.

“Since 2017, I have been laboring to produce a comprehensive study on Julia Morgan, her fellow California architects, historicist California architecture in the Progressive Era and post-World War I era (1890 to 1930), and new research on Hearst Castle,” explained project organizer, editor, author, and Atascadero resident Gordon L. Fuglie.

“My labors at last bore fruit. Rizzoli, the international fine art publisher, released our book late this spring: Julia Morgan: The Road to San Simeon, Visionary Architect of the California Renaissance.”

The book is a stunner, a groundbreaking new scholarly study that “includes much new material, previously unpublished,” Fuglie noted. It, along with Victoria Kastner’s Julia Morgan: An Intimate Biography of the Trailblazing Architect, are the first new books on Morgan in nearly 20 years, preceded by books such as Julia Morgan, Architect and Julia Morgan, Architect of Beauty

“Kastner’s is the first to engage with Morgan as an individual and ‘working personality,’” Fuglie noted. “She used a number of previously unpublished correspondence to inform her book. Consider this: Morgan has been dead for 65 years. Astonishingly, Kastner’s book is the first serious attempt to chronicle the architect’s life. Sheesh! Frank Lloyd Wright didn’t have to wait that long!”

Fuglie and his fellow scholars’ book is an

ambitious realignment of Morgan’s place in history.

“The significance of our book is that it looks at the era of Julia Morgan—not just her as a ‘pioneering woman architect,’ on a pedestal and set apart from California history and the rest of the architecture of her time,” Fuglie explained. “That’s why I wanted to do an anthology that incorporates specialists from different backgrounds and areas of expertise. That’s what makes our study a panorama of its subject—an expanded field. Morgan had renowned colleagues and occasionally worked with them, such as John Galen Howard and Bernard Maybeck at UC Berkeley.

“Further, ours is the most critical—as in evaluative—and up-to-date study of Morgan and her era,” Fuglie continued. “Unlike previous studies, our authors include four Ph.D.s and three scholars with master’s degrees in art and architectural history. Six of us have a record of scholarly publications prior to our Morgan anthology. Four of us have taught at the college and university level, and others have given public lectures on Morgan and California art history. Moreover, we can boast a contribution by Victoria Kastner, who served as Hearst Castle historian for more than 30 years.”

Indeed, the included essays are lucid and lively, and Fuglie had access to a vast array of materials, which made illustrating the book— as he said—“simple.”

“The images had to correspond to the text,” he said. “Read and see, see and read—text and image were chosen for their complementarity.”

Yes, the book would make a handsome addition to any coffee table, and it’s filled with historic photos, architectural renderings, and images of Morgan’s and her contemporaries’ buildings and architectural details, but this is also serious scholarship that makes for fascinating reading for those interested in California art history and early architecture.

Without Fuglie’s early trip to Hearst Castle and his subsequent relocation to the Central Coast, this book might not have been. That first visit as an eighth grader left an indelible mark.

“Remember, visitors approached Hearst Castle via miles of beautiful coastal and inland natural scenery, arriving at the hamlet of San Simeon,” Fuglie recalled. “Once you were dropped off at the hilltop, you were abruptly in the middle of a massive and complex historicist architectural ensemble. The State Parks tour at the time amounted

“Some people I’ve interviewed recall early tours that didn’t even credit Morgan as the architect or referred to her as William Randolph Hearst’s secretary.” Fuglie’s book hopes to rectify the chaos of Morgan miscellany and organize her achievements in a cogent and coherent way, and he’s quick to note that without his 2007 appointment as curator to the San Luis Obispo Art Center (now the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art) and relocation to the Central Coast, his early interest in Morgan may have remained dormant. However, proximity to Hearst Castle and its trove of Morgan architectural drawings as well as Cal Poly’s extensive Morgan collection made researching the architect a possibility.

“It sure helped that a former LoyolaMarymount University student of mine is now head of Cal Poly’s Department of Special Collections,” Fuglie noted. “Former Hearst Castle Museum Director Mary L. Levkoff received me collegially. She previously served at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, D.C.”

These various troves of Morgan materials offered a lot to work with, and the result speaks for itself. It’s an impressive, beautiful, and informative book.

“To summarize, it’s the most thorough treatment of Morgan, her work, and her era published to date,” Fuglie asserted. “We were pleased that our book and Kastner’s intimate bio were issued in the same year. Is Morganmania underway?” ∆

Culture shock

yan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Greed) directs this sequel to his 2018 film, Black Panther, about T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), king of Wakanda and protector of vibramium. This new film addresses head-on Boseman’s untimely 2020 death from colon cancer by opening the story with Wakandans mourning T’Challa’s death from an unnamed disease. Leaderless and at risk from outside forces since the vibranium-infused “heart-shaped herb” that turns a person into the superhuman Black Panther was destroyed, Wakanda’s only hope is T’Challa’s brilliant younger sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright), who’s trying to synthetically re-create the herb, and their mother, Ramonda (Angela Bassett), who struggles to keep the nation safe from a new enemy, Namor (Tenoch Huerta Mejía), the superhuman leader of the underwater vibranium-rich kingdom of Talokan, who wants to wage war on the surface and tries to force Wakanda to ally with him.

Glen Just writing the synopsis above was exhausting—this story is so rich with characters and details that it’s nearly impossible to explain both clearly and briefly. I think what made the original so compelling and successful—it hauled in a cool $1.3 billion—is the idea of an African nation untouched by colonialism. It’s an intriguing concept, and Wakanda feels like a fully formed place. Keep in mind, it’s a comic book story, so it gets a little wacky, but essentially a meteorite of vibranium led to the creation of the unknown civilization, whose existence was revealed in the first film when a Wakandan living in Oakland wanted to steal vibranium technology and share it with people of African descent around the world to aid them in fighting their oppressors. This time around, a brilliant MIT student, Riri (Dominique Thorne), has theoretically developed a machine that could search for vibranium, and the CIA took her design and deployed it, which led to Namor and Talokan’s plan to destroy the surface world. As complicated as it all sounds, the film does an amazing job helping viewers follow along. Well-defined characters, incredible sets and costuming, action-packed sequences, and an astute

eye on geopolitical complications make this a very engaging story.

Anna One problem I have with a lot of superhero films is that they try to do too much, and for a casual viewer like me, it can get confusing. I’ll give this film some credit in that department—even though it sounds like there’s too much going on, it’s easy to follow. Boseman is surely missed; he was a great actor and perfect in the Black Panther role, but I’m glad the filmmakers managed to create a story without him that still pays tribute to his unforgettable contribution to the franchise. I’ll admit that when the underwater dwellers showed up, I braced for some serious eye rolls, but the story was compelling. Sometimes you just have to give in to the ridiculous world of fantasy and enjoy the morality behind these hero stories. The film was too long for my taste, but they were trying to do a lot here. I get it. In my mind, it doesn’t beat the first

Black Panther film, but it’s a good followup and a fitting tribute to Boseman. Glen I agree, the fi lm was too long and sometimes boring. The Namor backstory involving ancient Mesoamerica colonialism and how he gained superhuman strength—not to mention nifty ankle wings allowing him to fly—was fun. The morals at play involve Wakanda using its superior technology for good, and Shuri using the reconstituted herb not for revenge but for righteousness. After we left the theater, a group of exuberant kids pretended to be Black Panther on the stairs outside the theater, proving the sequel was a success. Anna If a fi lm can entertain the whole family, it’s a winner. I don’t plan on rewatching this—it’s too long, and I feel like I wouldn’t gain anything new—but it was fun to see in the theater. As usual with this type of movie, there was a little bonus scene, and it may be my favorite part. The fights are fun, the storyline is clear enough, and the motivations behind the characters on all sides make sense. It has heart. I just wish it was two hours. Δ

Journalist Eileen Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) is out for redemption.

Recently disgraced, she’s left New York for Anchorage—a big step down from her last job but a chance to repair her reputation. She soon learns that the far north hides its own set of secrets.

From missing indigenous women to old enemies turning up, her new life in Alaska is full of intrigue.

Swank takes on her role as the hardassed reporter with vigor, though the story drifts into some soap-operaesque moments. That said, this isn’t a story of a bumbling small town paper breaking a big story. Fitzgerald acts as both a foe and mentor to others on the paper’s staff. She isn’t worried about whether people like her or not. As long as she reveals the truth, it’s all worth it.

Jeff Perry plays her boss, Stanley, a man who sees Eileen’s talent and drive

but cautions her to avoid blowing up stories before they’re confirmed. It’s totally bingeable and manages several storylines all at once, and they all stay interesting. Alaska Daily ’s first season has me wanting more. (10 47-min. episodes)

Written by Steven Moffat ( The Adventures of Tintin ) and directed by Paul McGuigan ( Lucky Number Slevin ), the central conceit of this engaging BBC miniseries is the idea that anyone can become a murderer given the right situation—even mild-mannered English vicar Harry Watling (David Tennant) and his kindly wife, Mary (Lyndsey Marshal), whose love for their son Ben (Louis Oliver) means everything. The series also explores serendipitous connections, opening with Janice (Dolly Wells), a math tutor, cleverly helping Beth (Lydia West), a journalist, out of a threatening situation on a UK subway. Janice is smart and resourceful, which Beth admires. This brief encounter sets up a storyline to come, but the thread that ties all the characters together is Jefferson Grieff

(Stanley Tucci), a death row inmate in the U.S. who helps solve cold cases. The former criminal pathologist can deduce whodunit.

When Beth visits Grieff in prison for a story on his techniques, she mentions that her acquaintance Janice has gone missing, setting up what’s to come. Contrived? Absolutely! But this is brilliantly acted with Tucci, Tennant, and Wells really shining. (four 60-min. episodes) Δ

Strictly Starkey

EDM’s bad boy

plays the Fremont

Yosef Asaf Borger looks like a perfectly nice young man, but the Tel Aviv-born, LA-based producer, DJ, and rapper has worked hard to cultivate a reputation as an enfant terrible who calls himself the man who “ruined dubstep.” Some of his songs have been compared to sex, horror films, or farm animals.

For instance, let’s talk about “Rachet,” which has been described as “a devastating cock-trap breakdown that rattles both your teeth and sense of self before ricocheting back to the perverse eye of the storm.” I don’t know about that, but the video features a lot of twerking, vomiting, and smoking blunts as viewed from a spaceship inhabited by a trio of disapproving aliens.

As Borgore’s bio says of “Rachet,” “The suggestion that the song, which rewrites the children’s classic ‘If You’re Happy And You Know It’ into a wobbling, dirty, bass anthem [that] will ‘destroy your childhood,’ is one that Borgore—eternal provocateur—heartily enjoys.”

Alright ravers, club kids, and EDMa-rinoes, Borgore plays Fremont Theater this Thursday, Nov. 17 (8 p.m.; all ages; $34.61 with fees at seetickets.us).

Stand-up comic Frankie Quiñones plays the Fremont on Friday, Nov. 18 (8 p.m.; all ages; $27.50 to $57.50 plus fees at eventbrite. com). Quiñones stars in the new ABC Studios Hulu show This Fool

Craigie returns

Numbskull and Good Medicine are bringing Portland-based singersongwriter and producer John Craigie back to the Cuesta College Performing Arts Center for an encore performance this Friday, Nov. 18 (7 p.m.; $30.59 with fees at goodmedicinepresents.com)—a stop on his Keep It Warm 2022 tour that donates $1 from each ticket to the

nonprofit Farm to Pantry, which last year rescued more than 350,000 pounds of produce from the landfill.

Craigie is touring in support of his 2022 album Mermaid Salt, a 10-track collection in which listeners “witness revenge unfurled in flames, watch a landlocked mermaid’s escape, and fall asleep under a meteor shower,” according to press materials.

“The album comes from the solitude and loneliness of lockdown in the Northwest. Someone whose life was touring, traveling, and having lots of human interaction is faced with an undefinable amount of time without those things,” Craigie’s bio continues. “Rather than steal away to a cabin or hole up in a house with friends, Craigie opted to set up shop at the OK Theater in Enterprise, Ore., with longtime collaborator Bart Budwig behind the board as engineer. A rotating cast of musicians shuffled in and out safely, distinguishing the process from the communal recording of previous releases.”

Special guest Anna Moss (of Handmade Moments) will open the show.

The Siren calls

The Siren hosts a Grateful Dead celebration with the China Cats on Friday, Nov. 18 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $18 plus fees at eventbrite.com). Jerry Garcia would be 80 this year, so come celebrate the 9 1/2-fingered guitarist with Santa Cruz and the Bay Area’s premier Grateful Dead tribute band.

Local singer-songwriter extraordinaire Mark Adams and his band play The Siren on Saturday, Nov. 19 (2:30 p.m.; free). The winemaker writes terrific narrative songs like “Where’s My Town,” about unwelcome changes to a small farming community: “Where’s my town now/ When did all of this go down/ Where’s my town now/ What the who and how/ Population eight hundred and five/ Turned ten thousand overnight / It used to be stop sign/ And now it’s stoplight, stoplight, stoplight/ Stoplight, stoplight, stoplight.”

Adams’ most recent recording is Loaded with Lefty: A Tribute to Lefty Frizzell, which was produced and recorded with his friend Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips) at Bluhm’s House in Fairfax, California.

Later that same night, check out the all-vinyl soul vs. funk DJ dance party presented by Soul Dust (8 p.m.; 21-andolder; $7 presale at eventbrite.com or $10 day of show).

Chillin’ with DENM

SLO Brew Rock hosts singer-songwriter and alt-indie beach hipster DENM this Thursday, Nov. 17 (7:30 p.m.; 18-andolder; $18 plus fees at ticketweb.com). His new album, Slum Beach Denny, is filled with super-chill tracks like “Life’s 2 Short”: “If all we are is all we get/ Then I’ma live with no regret/ Life’s too short to stress out/ Life’s too short// I’ve watched my old man cry/ ‘Don’t you live your life like mine’/ Life’s too short to stress out/ Life’s too short.” Imagine Jack Johnson with a hip-hop vibe.

Bluegrass savior

SLOfolks is on a run of great concerts, and this week they’re bringing The Jake Blount Quartet to Castoro Cellars on Friday, Nov. 18 (7:30 p.m.; $25 at castorocellars.com/events or (805) 2380725). Blount is a 2021 Steve Martin Banjo Prize winner and two-time winner of West Virginia’s Appalachian String Band Music Festival.

“In addition to Jake shining a powerful light on the Black and Indigenous roots of folk and old-time music, he also brings to the forefront the issues of racism and colorism in queer and Black communities,” local accordionist Duane Inglish explained. “There’s really no one quite like him—well, Rhiannon Giddens is one of his mentors—in the old time, country, and bluegrass communities.”

From flan to lebkuchen

SLO pastry chef navigates culinary borders, mastering German delicacies for the Cambria Christmas Market

Sydney Rodriguez whips up traditional Mexican desserts such as flan and sweet tamales at her San Luis Obispo home during the holidays. However, once she hits the road for work at Cambria Pines Lodge’s annual Christmas Market, she channels German culinary customs.

The well-traveled and versatile chef creates sweet delicacies aboard cruise lines seven months out of the year, but during the off season she devotes her talents to traditional German desserts at Cambria’s annual “Weihnachtsmarkt,” or open-air Christmas market.

“I’ve been traveling all around the world as a pastry chef, but every year when I come back to work [in Cambria] I feel like I’m coming home,” Rodriguez said.

Born in Hanford, California, Rodriguez studied culinary arts at nearby West Hills College in Lemoore, then embarked on an eight-year career in hospitality.

She relocated to the foodie town of SLO in 2017 and said she relishes the opportunity to explore new cultures via their ethnic specialties.

“I was introduced to German-style food three years ago after being retained by the Cambria Christmas Market as a temporary hire,” she said.

The position complemented her primary career as a pastry chef aboard American and National Geographic cruise lines. Now the market’s lead pastry chef, Rodriguez says she has bonded with her co-workers and loves her seasonal job.

“As a Mexican American, I grew up making traditional cuisines and desserts,” Rodriguez said. “Being given the opportunity to mix my own [culinary heritage] with a new one has been amazing.”

Market coordinator Mike Arnold is thrilled with Rodriguez’s diverse—and delicious—repertoire.

“We look forward to seeing what she comes up with each year,” he said.

However, one of her pastries is the highlight of the market’s sweet shop.

“The German heart cookies, called lebkuchen in Germany, are a very traditional Christmas market item,” Arnold said. “We have worked with several bakers throughout the years, but Sydney’s version is by far our favorite.”

Arnold added that traditionally, lebkuchens are very hard.

“Chef Rodriguez’s version is both sturdy enough to be worn around your neck and still soft enough to eat and enjoy,” he said. “Add the beautiful frosting work, and

each one is really a work of art.”

Rodriguez said the recipe is a Cambria Christmas market original with minor changes.

Arnold gives her free rein to “create anything for the market, and I’m very honored to work with him and his team,” she added. “Like I said, we’re a family.”

Additional market sweets include apfelkuchen mit streusel (apple streusel cake) and stollen (German Christmas bread). Rodriguez usually bakes the stollen herself, but this year she’s enlisting the services of another baker.

“We support local businesses,” Rodriguez explained, whether it’s sourcing for ingredients or partnering with a vendor to produce the best product possible.

The pastry team works its magic at Cambria Pines Lodge Restaurant, led by executive chef Dave Byrnes, who will be orchestrating the market’s full-blown German feast.

Savory standouts include bratwurst, chicken schnitzel fingers, bratkartoffeln (fries with bacon and onions), currywurst, senfgurken (homemade pickles), and eintopf (lentil) stew.

For a visual and culinary feast

Experience the Cambria Christmas Market at Cambria Pines Lodge, located at 2905 Burton Drive. The market is open Nov. 25 to Dec. 23 from 5 to 9 p.m. (closed Mondays and Tuesdays through Dec. 13). For tickets and parking instructions, visit cambriachristmasmarket.com. Follow the market on Facebook and Instagram @cambriachristmasmarket.

Lebkuchen (German Gingerbread Hearts)

Yields 6 to 8 cookies

sized 6 to 8 inches

• 14 tablespoons (1.75 stick) butter

• 1 1⁄2 cups honey

• 1 1⁄4 cups sugar

• 5 tablespoons (1⁄3 cup) cocoa powder

• 2 tablespoons gingerbread spice mix

• 3 teaspoons baking powder

• 10 cups flour

• 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

• 2 eggs

Make the dough

Bring butter, honey, sugar, cocoa powder, and gingerbread spice mix to a boil in a mediumsized saucepan. Boil until the sugar dissolves, then remove from heat and cool slightly. Sift flour with baking powder and salt into a bowl. Make a depression in the bowl and add eggs, then pour the honey mixture over the flour and mix on low speed until a ball of dough can be formed. The dough might still be shaggy (lumpy) but will become smooth as it cools, so don’t add extra flour. Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for 4 to 48 hours. For best results, the dough should rest at least overnight.

Bake the cookies

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out half the dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured board. Use large, heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out cookies. To hang these hearts from a ribbon, create one or two holes about 3⁄4 inch below the rim of the cookie. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough. Place the cookie on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cookies are set in the middle and lightly browned on the bottom. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet.

Glaze with royal icing

• 4 cups (480 grams) confectioners’ sugar

• 3 tablespoons egg white powder

• 9 to 10 tablespoons room temperature water

Pour confectioners’ sugar, egg white powder, and water into a large bowl. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat icing ingredients on high speed for up to 2 minutes. When lifting the whisk up off the icing, the icing should drizzle down and smooth out within 5 to 10 seconds. If it’s too thick, beat in more water 1 tablespoon at a time. The longer you beat the icing, the thicker it becomes. If your icing is too thin, keep beating to introduce more air, or you can add more confectioners’ sugar. When applied to cookies in a thin layer, icing completely dries in about two hours at room temperature. If icing is too thin or runny, or applied too thickly, it will take longer to dry.

The liquid lineup features hot chocolate and cider, holiday specialties such as gluhwein (mulled wine), and, of course, a biergarten.

The Cambria Christmas Market launched in 2011, when Moonstone Hotel Properties owner Dirk Winter fulfilled his dream of bringing a German-style Christmas market to Cambria Pines Lodge, which he purchased in 1990 and expanded to include Cambria Nursery and Florist.

The first recognized German Christmas market was held in Dresden in 1434. Today, they are celebrated around the globe, with Cambria’s being one of California’s most famous. Thousands of tourists flock to the seaside town each year to enjoy the monthlong fete amid a breathtaking backdrop of 2 million lights.

The combined grounds host the elaborate affair—slated for Nov. 25 to Dec. 23. This year’s guests will enjoy 1.25 miles of Christmas decorations and interactive displays illuminated by a staggering 2 million lights, plus artisan vendors, visits from Santa, a train ride, fire pits, live musicians and carolers on two stages, and more. ∆

Flavor Writer Cherish Whyte can’t wait to hit the market for a brat, lebkuchen, and splash of gluhwein. Reach her at cwhyte@newtimesslo.com.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear owner ship of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auc tioned 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, ben eficiary, 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 pres ent 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 or visit this Inter net Web site www.ndscorp. com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case 22-20025-SP-CA.

Information about postpone ments that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT*:

You may have a right to pur chase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the Califor nia 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 888-2644010, or visit this internet website www.ndscorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 2220025-SP-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 trust ee 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 attor ney or appropriate real estate profes sional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. *Pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code, the potential rights de scribed herein shall apply only to public auctions taking place on or after January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2025, un less later extended.

the “Work.” Substantial Completion of the Work as determined by the Authority Having Jurisdiction for full and beneficial use of the project, shall be achieved no later than 30th day of September, 2024 Digital copies of the plans, specifications, and contract documents are available from SLONP upon written request to mburke@haslo.org. In accordance with the provisions of California Public Contract Code § 3300, and Business and Professions Code § 7028.15(e), Bidder shall possess a valid Class B - General Building license at the time that the contract is awarded. Failure to possess the specified license shall render a Bidder’s Bid as non-responsive and shall bar award of the contract to any Bidder not possessing the specified license at the time of the award.

Pursuant to Section 1773 of the Labor Code, the general prevailing wage rates in the county, or counties, in which the work is to be done have been determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations. These wages are set forth in the General Prevailing Wage Rates for this project, available from the California Department of Industrial Relations’ Internet web site at https://www.dir.ca.gov/oprl/2022-2/PWD/index.htm The Work is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Industrial Relations. Bidder and Bidder’s Subcontractor’s must be registered with the Department of Industrial Relations pursuant to Labor Code section 1725.5 [with limited exceptions from this requirement for Bid purposes only under Labor Code section 1771.1(a)].

Prior to commencement of the Work, the awarded Bidder shall deliver a Payment and Performance Bond in an amount not less than 100% of the contract value issued by a Surety licensed to do business in the State of California in a form acceptable to SLONP.

QUALIFICATIONS: Bidders who have performed renovation of a similar scope of work on concrete structures of five-stores or more and have worked with Federal funds, are eligible for this Bid.

SECTION 3 REQUIREMENTS: This is a HUD Section 3 contract, and all Bidders must commit to achieving established requirements, including benchmarks for Section 3 workers and Targeted Section 3 workers. Detailed quarterly reporting of hours worked and documentation of efforts to achieve the benchmarks will be required.

SLONP hereby notifies all Bidders that it will affirmatively ensure that in any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement, DBE, Minority Business Enterprise, and Women-Owned Business Enterprise will be afforded full opportunity to submit bids in response to this invitation and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color, religious creed, sex, or national origin in consideration for an award.

The Federal minimum wage rates for this project as predetermined by the United States Secretary of Labor are set forth in General Decision Number CA20220012, Dated 10/13/2022, which is incorporated in these special provisions by this reference as if fully set forth herein and which can be viewed at https:// sam.gov/wage-determination/CA20220012/12

If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes “helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question.

SLONP reserves the right to reject any and all Bids or waive any irregularities or informalities in any Bid or in the bidding.

If you have any questions, please contact Michael Burke by email at mburke@halso.org

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology

ARIES

(March 21-April 19): Virginia Woolf wrote a passage that I suspect will apply to you in the coming weeks. She said, “There is no denying the wild horse in us. To gallop intemperately; fall on the sand tired out; to feel the earth spin; to have—positively—a rush of friendship for stones and grasses—there is no getting over the fact that this desire seizes us.” Here’s my question for you, Aries: How will you harness your wild horse energy? I’m hoping that the selfpossessed human in you will take command of the horse and direct it to serve you and yours with constructive actions. It’s fine to indulge in some intemperate galloping, too. But I’ll be rooting for a lot of temperate and disciplined galloping.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20): “The failure of love might account for most of the suffering in the world,” writes poet Marie Howe. I agree with that statement. Many of us have had painful episodes revolving around people who no longer love us and people whose lack of love for us makes us feel hurt. That’s the bad news, Taurus. The good news is that you now have more power than usual to heal the failures of love you have endured in the past. You also have an expanded capacity to heal others who have suffered from the failures of love. I hope you will be generous in your ministrations!

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20): Many Geminis tell me they are often partly awake as they sleep. In their dreams, they might work overtime trying to solve waking-life problems. Or they may lie in bed in the dark contemplating intricate ideas that fascinate them, or perhaps ruminating on the plot developments unfolding in a book they’ve been reading or a TV show they’ve been bingeing. If you are prone to such behavior, I will ask you to minimize it for a while. In my view, you need to relax your mind extra deeply and allow it to play luxuriously with non-utilitarian fantasies and dreams. You have a sacred duty to yourself to explore mysterious and stirring feelings that bypass rational thought.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22): Here are my two key messages for you. 1. Remember where you hide important stuff. 2. Remember that you have indeed hidden some important stuff. Got that? Please note that I am not questioning your urge to lock away a secret or two. I am not criticizing you for wanting to store a treasure that you are not yet ready to use or reveal. It’s completely understandable if you want to keep a part of your inner world off-limits to certain people for the time being. But as you engage in any or all of these actions, make sure you don’t lose touch with your valuables. And don’t forget why you are stashing them.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22): I know I don’t have to give you lessons in expressing your sensuality. Nor do you need prods and encouragement to do so. As a Leo, you most likely have abundant talent in the epicurean arts. But as you prepare to glide into the lush and lusty heart of the Sensuality Season, it can’t hurt to offer you a pep talk from your fellow Leo bon vivant, James Baldwin. He said: “To be sensual is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread.”

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Many Virgos are on a lifelong quest to cultivate a knack described by Sigmund Freud: “In the small matters, trust the mind. In the large ones, the heart.” And I suspect you are now at a pivotal point in your efforts to master that wisdom. Important decisions are looming in regards to both small and large matters. I believe you will do the right things as long as you empower your mind to do what it does best and your heart to do what it does best.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Social media like Facebook and Twitter feed on our outrage. Their algorithms are designed to stir up

our disgust and indignation. I confess that I get semi-caught in their trap. I am sometimes seduced by the temptation to feel lots of umbrage and wrath, even though those feelings comprise a small minority of my total emotional range. As an antidote, I proactively seek experiences that rouse my wonder and sublimity and holiness. In the next two weeks, Libra, I invite you to cultivate a focus like mine. It’s high time for a phase of minimal anger and loathing—and maximum reverence and awe.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Sylvia Plath had a disturbing, melodramatic relationship with romance. In one of her short stories, for example, she has a woman character say, “His love is the twenty-story leap, the rope at the throat, the knife at the heart.” I urge you to avoid contact with people who think and feel like that—as glamorous as they might seem. In my view, your romantic destiny in the coming months can and should be uplifting, exciting in healthy ways, and conducive to your well-being. There’s no need to link yourself with shadowy renegades when there will be plenty of radiant helpers available.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I like Sagittarian healer and author Caroline Myss because she’s both spiritual and practical, compassionate and fierce. Here’s a passage from her work that I think will be helpful for you in the coming weeks: “Get bored with your past. It’s over! Forgive yourself for what you think you did or didn’t do, and focus on what you will do, starting now.” To ensure you make the most of her counsel, I’ll add a further insight from author Augusten Burroughs: “You cannot be a prisoner of your past against your will— because you can only live in the past inside your mind.”

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How would you respond if you learned that the $55 T-shirt you’re wearing was made by a Haitian kid who earned 10 cents for her work? Would you stop wearing the shirt? Donate it to a thrift store? Send money to the United Nations agency UNICEF, which works to protect Haitian child laborers? I recommend the latter option. I also suggest you use this as a prompt to engage in leisurely meditations on what you might do to reduce the world’s suffering. It’s an excellent time to stretch your imagination to understand how your personal life is interwoven with the lives of countless others, many of whom you don’t even know. And I hope you will think about how to offer extra healings and blessings not just to your allies, but also to strangers. What’s in it for you? Would this bring any selfish benefits your way? You may be amazed at how it leads you to interesting connections that expand your world.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian philosopher Alfred North Whitehead wrote, “The silly question is the first intimation of some totally new development.” He also said, “Every really new idea looks crazy at first.” With these thoughts in mind, Aquarius, I will tell you that you are now in the Season of the Silly Question. I invite you to enjoy dreaming up such queries. And as you indulge in that fertile pleasure, include another: Celebrate the Season of Crazy Ideas.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20): We all love to follow stories: the stories we live, the stories that unfold for people we know, and the stories told in movies, TV shows, and books. A disproportionately high percentage of the entertainment industry’s stories are sad or tormented or horrendously painful. They influence us to think such stories are the norm. They tend to darken our view of life. While I would never try to coax you to avoid all those stories, Pisces, I will encourage you to question whether maybe it’s wise to limit how many you absorb. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to explore this possibility. Be willing to say, “These sad, tormented, painful stories are not ones I want to invite into my imagination.” Try this experiment: For the next three weeks, seek out mostly uplifting tales. ∆
