Planned part-time travel lane through Five Cities is a state ‘pilot project’

A

s the project to tackle Highway 101 traffic heading south from San Luis Obispo gets closer to fruition, one Pismo Beach City Council member believes part of the plan is “unacceptable.” Mayor Pro Tempore Mary Ann Reiss is worried about the height of the median barrier obscuring views of the Pacific coast. “It’s not going to be raised at all, right? Because it’s too high now,” she said after an update on the project at the Nov. 15 City Council meeting. Spanning from San Luis Bay Drive to the railroad overpass just south of Price Canyon Road, the project would widen the inside shoulder of Highway 101 into a part-time travel lane from 2 to 7 p.m. on weekdays and realign the southbound lanes to veer around Pismo Rock (an indigenous cultural resource). Plans would also establish a park-and-ride hub with zero-emission charging stations at Price Street and Maddie Road and extend the Shell Beach shared use path to Avila Beach Drive for pedestrians and bicyclists. The Five Cities Multimodal Transportation Network Enhancement Project released its final environmental impact report in August. Concrete barriers separating the north and southbound lanes that are “touched by the project” will gain about 10 inches of height due to federal safety requirements, CalTrans Project Manager Paul Valadao said. He told council members on Nov. 15 that due to vehicles getting taller, the Federal Highway Administration currently mandates that barriers be at least 42 inches tall to prevent them from being “overtopped by errant vehicles.” “It’s unacceptable now, so I’m not sure how I feel about that,” Reiss responded. Projects that don’t abide by federal guidelines, Valadao added, can lose government funding. Expected to cost about $85 million, the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) has allocated approximately $20 million to the project’s development phases and is awaiting the results of two applications for Senate Bill 1 funding from the California Transportation Commission. Totaling a little more than $65 million, SLOCOG Transportation Planner Stephen Hanamaikai said they expect to get answers next June. CalTrans and SLOCOG are also working on a coastal development permit application. When completed, it would be the second stretch of roadway in California with a part-

SLO County to outsource psychiatric health facility

San Luis Obispo County’s only low-incomeserving psychiatric hospital is set to change hands soon. The SLO County Health Agency is finalizing a contract with an outside vendor to take the reins of its 16-bed psychiatric health facility (PHF), an inpatient unit primarily serving adult patients on Medi-Cal. A final contract for the transition will go before the SLO County Board of Supervisors at a December meeting. “Our hope is sometime in the summer [of

time travel lane on the inside shoulder of a highway. In April 2018, Interstate 580 in the Bay Area opened a part-time lane heading east over the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. Parttime travel lanes are so new to the state that the California Vehicle Code currently “prohibits general purpose travel on the shoulder of state highways,” according to the Five Cities environmental impact report. “Therefore, the project is being proposed as a pilot project during its initial seven years of operation, after which Caltrans would pursue legislative approval to make the part-time travel lane a permanent feature,” the report states. “If approval is not granted, the part-time travel lane would likely be reverted to one 14-foot-wide full-time shoulder.” Valadao told New Times that the lanes have been successfully implemented on I-70 in Colorado as well as a few places in the Northeast. “So we are fully engaged with our federal counterparts,” he said, referring the the Federal Highway Administration. “It’s been really cool to work with them directly.” A red x or green arrow would let commuters

know when the lane is available for use, while a freeway service patrol would ensure the shoulder is clear prior to 2 p.m. Valadao said the patrol is a service that already exists today and is funded by SLOCOG. The lane would have signage similar to an HOV or carpool lane, and rules for use would be enforced by the California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement. The truck travel lane that starts between San Luis Bay and Avila Beach drives will be “recycled” into the project, Valadao said. “It doesn’t function very well,” Valadao said. “It causes a lot of havoc.” Caltrans plans to take the existing pavement and use it to build out the part-time travel lane, something that should come as a relief to Pismo Beach City Councilmember Sheila Blake, who voiced her frustration with cars that use the truck travel lane to zoom around traffic. “Can’t we station someone there with a nail strip so that when someone comes speeding down and they think ‘ah ha ha, I’m going to beat out all these other people’—couldn’t we do something to these people?” she said with a laugh during the Nov. 15 meeting. “No, I guess not.” ∆ —Camillia Lanham

2023] to transition over to the new vendor providing the services,” Interim Health Agency Director Nick Drews said. “The state has quite a few PHFs that are run privately or by nonprofits and not by a county specifically. It’s become more and more of a trend.” The decision to outsource the PHF is about a decade in the making, department leaders told New Times. They attribute recent challenges in running an in-house PHF to the local psychiatrist shortage. “It’s really difficult to find psychiatrists who will come and live here,” County Behavioral Health Director Anne Robin said. “The county

staff who worked within our unit are fabulous. They do a great job. It’s been the psychiatry coverage that’s been challenging.” Robin added that recruiting psychiatrists for the PHF is especially difficult because the county competes with the California Men’s Colony and Atascadero State Hospital for the same doctors. “For the psychiatrists who reside in the county, many want to work for those two state entities,” she said. And while outpatient offices can turn to telemedicine if necessary, inpatient units NEWS continued page 6

require a psychiatrist to be on-site at all times—putting the facility in a constant staffing bind. “We serve folks in psychiatric crisis who need a very high level of care,” Robin said, “who are coming to us for treatment due to being a danger to themselves or others, or who are unable to provide food, shelter, and clothing due to their mental illness.” One of the main benefits of using a third-party operator for the PHF is better psychiatric coverage, according to Drews. Most private contractors operate more than one PHF and therefore have more doctors on staff to deploy. “Having a company with a larger pool to pull from is a benefit, because it’s going to be a lot easier for them to find a psychiatrist than it is for us,” Drews said. The transition puts the jobs of nearly 30 county employees at risk. Robin and Drews said that the county will work hard to either connect the PHF workers with the new operator or find different roles for them in other county departments. The PHF is just the latest SLO County facility to turn to the private sector for services. In 2019, the county jail privatized health care following a spree of jail deaths and lawsuits alleging inadequate care. Earlier this year, the SLO County grand jury investigated the PHF as part of a report that found deficiencies across the county’s mental health care system. Robin encouraged the community to stay involved in the mental health conversation and hopes that more people will join the field. “I’m glad that attention is being paid to the need for mental health services, because as we’ve seen, there’s a growing need across the community and across the nation,” Robin said. “We want to encourage people who are interested in mental health to get into the field because we really need to build up our workforce again.” —Peter Johnson

Proposed RV storage could alter Atascadero’s De Anza trail

Pedestrians strolling along the De Anza trail in Atascadero could expect a change of scenery if a proposal to place an RV storage facility on Atascadero Mutual Water Company’s property near the Salinas River is approved. During the Nov. 15 Planning Commission meeting, several residents and the Northern Chumash Tribal Council expressed their concern over environmental impacts, safety issues, and how the project would impact the trail’s scenery. “There is no good reason for a commercial establishment going in next to a historic trail,” Atascadero resident Cleis Slezak wrote in a letter to the city. “Not only would it be an eyesore, but it sets a bad precedent for further development where there should be none.” Since a failed attempt at constructing a BMX facility in 2007, the site at 6805 Sycamore Road has been left largely untouched—with the exception of the occasional storage yards that have leased the space from the Atascadero Mutual Water Company. The area has been used as an open space for people to play with their dogs and fly model airplanes, according to Atascadero Community Development Director Phil Dunsmore.

While Dunsmore told New Times that the proposed project wouldn’t bring a ton of economic benefits to Atascadero, it does have some benefits. For one, it gives people a place to put their cars, RVs, boats, and more. “They tend to end up getting stored in undesirable locations in front yards, a lot of side property lines, or somewhere out in the street, blocking something. And so when they have a place to put them, that’s a great thing,” he said. “We might be able to clean up certain areas in the city by having expanded opportunities for private storage.” If the project does receive a green light, that would mean realigning the De Anza trail, a point of contention for many trail users. In an email to the Planning Commission Gina and Briano Planeta said they drive by the spot in question to take their daughter to and from school. “On almost every pass, I see people. Sometimes it’s people walking their dogs. Sometimes it’s families walking. Often, it’s a group of folks who get together to fly their RC planes,” the Planetas said. “Rerouting a historical trail and taking away riverfront open space for RV storage seems like a very poor trade for the community.” Dunsmore said, however, that realigning the trail wouldn’t have a detrimental effect. “Today, it’s just a weird pull-off and a barbed wire fence; that barbed wire fence would come down and turn into a nice lower fence,” Dunsmore said. “It’d be a lot more welcoming so the De Anza trail wouldn’t be impacted. It would actually be improved with this project.” The RV storage yard would house up to 262 vehicles, raising environmental concerns over groundwater contamination from fuel leakage, herbicide use contaminating the river, and endangering habitats. Several members of the SLO Beaver Brigade, including Audrey Taub, spoke during the public comment period at the Nov. 15 meeting. Taub said she felt that the project didn’t align with Atascadero’s general plan. “I think the general plan needs to rezone it to open space because water is becoming more apparent how precious of a resource it is and how we need to really design the way we live to contribute to our groundwater deep water basins rather than just keep extracting them,” Taub said. The Northern Chumash Tribal Council wrote a letter to the commission requesting an archaeological study of the site due to a likelihood of precolonial native settlements in the vicinity. According to Dunsmore, the water company must complete an archeological study in order to earn a stamp of approval from the Planning Commission. The project will come back before the commission at a future date. —Shwetha Sundarrajan

property. Sievers didn’t deny the activities that allegedly occurred on his land, but he said he’s lacked support to address them. He said his efforts to get the police to stop the criminal activity and the courts to authorize evictions have been “stymied.” “The cops said they’re scared to go there at night. How do you think I feel then?” Sievers said. “They’ve never really helped at all. I need some assistance.” An ex-parte hearing on the city’s request for a receiver is scheduled for Dec. 14. Dietrick said that receivership is the best way forward for the property and the community after years of trying to work with Sievers to clean up the site.

“It’s been pretty clear for some time that it’s just beyond his capacity at this stage to remediate,” Dietrick said. “There have been periods of time when he’s made a decent dent. But it’s never been sustained. And at this point we just don’t think it’s sustainable.” If the court agrees, a receiver could take out loans against the property to carry out the work necessary to fix the violations. The city and receiver would submit a work plan to the court that, among other things, would have to “address the relocation of any tenants.” To Sievers, that route sounds prohibitively expensive, especially when he feels like he’s finally making progress. “I am really worried about it because they have expensive attorneys,” he said. “It’s going to run up huge bills. I’m broke.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com. IMAGE COURTESY OF THE CITY OF SLO

With the Oceano Advisory Council’s future in question, the role of an advisory body is hotly debated in the town

T

wenty-six years after setting up advisory councils, the SLO County Board of Supervisors is about to discuss withdrawing recognition of one that has existed since the beginning. Following years of belligerent interactions with its critics and bouts of infighting, the Oceano Advisory Council (OAC) is in jeopardy. On Dec. 6, supervisors will debate deauthorizing the council after 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton brought up the idea following a community-driven petition she received opposing the OAC’s approach to a vacation rental ordinance. “Supervisor Compton has said in the past that the OAC has overreached its sphere of responsibility. We don’t think the OAC represents her,” council Vice Chair April Dury said. “No advisory council was created to represent a supervisor. You represent your community, and you only give your recommendation [to the supervisors]. No advisory council has government ability to make actual decisions.” The county adopted a policy on Dec. 10, 1996, to authorize advisory councils in 11 unincorporated areas. These regions were Avila Valley, Cayucos, South County, Santa Margarita, Shandon, Creston, North Coast, Los Osos, San Miguel, Templeton, and Oceano. Advisory councils advise county decision makers on planning matters and make recommendations on proposed plans, ordinances, and developments based on the wishes of the community. Advisory councils don’t make actual policy decisions. “Advisory councils were created but they were not created for supervisors to pick the people that are on advisory councils, like the Planning Commission or the Airport Land Use Commission, who get to make actual decisions in the government,” Dury said. She added that she’s not in favor of advisory councils being exempt from the Brown Act, which dictates that meetings of public bodies must be “open and public and all persons shall be permitted to attend any meeting, except as otherwise provided in this chapter.” “I think, personally, that that was a mistake on the county’s side, in that advisory councils now and not at any time had any requirement to turn over documents and abide by the Brown Act in any way,” she said. Advisory councils in the region are counseled by a county-issued handbook from 2013, which recommends that advisory councils follow the Brown Act. Dury thinks it needs to be updated. Because advisory councils work on land use projects within the boundaries of the communities they represent, the handbook states that they’re supposed

Verdin was referring to Dury’s inflammatory social media posts and allegations from others that she insulted FILE PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM tourists and vacation rental owners. Dury maintained that she spoke in the capacity of an individual resident of Oceano and not as a top member on the advisory council. VACO was formed in 2021, which some believe was an attempt to replace the more left-leaning OAC, according to previous New Times reporting. Dury added that Supervisor Compton unfairly favors VACO and that she hasn’t attended any recent OAC meetings despite the council repeatedly sending her the agenda and invitations to sit in. MONEY MATTERS Donations from Compton didn’t respond to New Times’ three members of the Vitality Advisory multiple requests for comment. Council of Oceano to 4th District Verdin said that VACO invited her Supervisor Lynn Compton’s primary to its community events, which she campaign are similar to the amount of funding the group received for holiday attended.

It began in 1992 as a senior project designed to solve the rising population of feral cats on campus. Initially, the project trapped and euthanized feral cats, Humphreys said, but eventually, the program turned toward a more humane approach—the “trap, test, vaccinate, medicate, alter, and release” technique. As the program grew, so did the services they provided. “And it just eventually evolved, and it’s now a fullservice cat shelter,” Humphreys said. “We do adoptions.

Thanksgiving 2022 Try to think positive about the many things we have to be thankful for this year

T

his week is Thanksgiving; the day represents a couple of things; one is that we give thanks for having a warm, dry place to sleep and food to eat. We are also thankful for the health and well-being of our families and wish that there hadn’t been as many tragedies over the last 12 months. Maybe next year will be better. Giving thanks includes “giving” too; as food banks, churches, and social clubs gear up for the holiday season, they could use a helping hand. There are several ways to give: cash, turkeys/hams, canned goods, and even helping when dinner is served at the shelters. Two years ago, Thanksgiving was unlike any other in my 75 plus years. Normally it’s a time for family gatherings, but the government had other ideas. In early spring of that year a very contagious disease arrived on our shores that transformed what is “normal” into something no one could have ever imagined. Suppose that someone told you that you would be prohibited from attending Disneyland and that the iconic Pasadena Rose Parade would be canceled, would you have believed them? Probably not. But in 2020, the government ordered all entertainment venues and many other commercial

HODIN

businesses closed until further notice; they also placed a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew on almost all of California. Would you have believed that faraway family members coming to join you for the festivities would have to be quarantined for 14 days before the visit could begin? Once again, your friends and family would have questioned your sanity. But that and much more is exactly what happened; government overreach had a whole new meaning. The impacts of these decisions will resonate for decades. But try to think positive. What do we have to be thankful for this year? First, those of us who didn’t catch the bug should be grateful; for the more than 98 percent of those who have caught it and have recovered, you should be doubly grateful. And most of all, it appears that preventive inoculations seemed to blunt the impact of the disease if you did catch it.

Those who didn’t lose their job along with the income that goes with it and businesses that were somehow able to weather the storm should be happy. After Thanksgiving this year, many will eat turkey or ham sandwiches and leftover pumpkin pie. That is, except for the homeless and those who didn’t or couldn’t cook a big feed. Vagabonds from the homeless population will be fed hearty meals and perhaps receive small gifts of fresh socks or clean clothing. Then they will wander off seeking shelter wherever they can find it. I wish that the Christmas season that will soon follow will be a game changer for all those who are in need. Even though the homeless are sometimes a nuisance, they are our fellow human beings and deserve some compassion. There seem to be many more homeless people visible on our streets lately, but it is the invisible poor that are the most forgotten. Many families are struggling to make ends meet, many are working multiple jobs just to provide the bare necessities for their families. The Central Coast is full of a caring

No matter what the minimum wage is, it is never enough to have any extras. It’s been that way all my adult life; as wages increase so does the cost of living, including the rent. Russell Hodin

communities, but in so many, the median income is barely enough to pay the rent. No matter what the minimum wage is, it is never enough to have any extras. It’s been that way all my adult life; as wages increase so does the cost of living, including the rent. It almost seems like an endless “do loop” to keep people from reaping the benefits of the increased income. Instead of dwelling on the negatives we suffered this year, think about what may happen in the year to come. Will politicians solve the homeless issue or will they finally put global warming to rest? Probably not, but at least they’ll have something to talk about, because in their world “talking about it” and issuing mandates that don’t seem to work seems to equal a solution. ∆ Ron Fink wrote to New Times from Lompoc.

Rhetoric&Reason

BY JOHN DONEGAN

SPEND $100

Bad choices L iberals often wonder how their conservative friends can possibly vote for candidates like Trump and others who they see as deeply flawed. Comedian Bill Maher has offered a helpful insight: It is because conservatives are so repelled by the Democratic agenda that they would vote for practically anybody else instead. There is some truth to that. After going off on a rant about Georgia senatorial candidate Herschel Walker, Maher offered to translate for the liberal tribe how someone like Walker could have any support. He said Republicans are essentially telling liberals: “Do you see how much we don’t like what you’re selling? All this socialism and identity politics and victimhood and oversensitivity and cancel culture and white self-loathing and forcing complicated ideas about race and sex on kids too young to understand it. Literally anything would be better than that.” The honest, moderate Democrat will secretly admit in their heart of hearts that, yeah, sometimes their progressive wing, which seems to be running the party these days, has gotten pretty nutty. To illustrate an example of the Democrat’s unwillingness to say, “This is just too doggone crazy,” to any woke cause, Maher offered pictures of the transgendered elementary school teacher who was allowed to teach small children while wearing a grotesquely oversized breast prosthesis (sort of giant falsies on steroids) just because (s)he felt like it, and could. Obviously, the dutifully liberal school administration felt that they must accommodate her because, well, because she is transgendered and this is what she felt she needed to wear to feel her “authentic” self. Democrats don’t seem to have the word “no” in their vocabularies when it comes to their causes. The Democrats weren’t always too intimidated to confront their extremists. One of Bill Clinton’s shrewder moves during his 1992 campaign was to publicly criticize Black rapper Sister Souljah, who during the Los Angeles riots, said, “If Black people kill Black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people?” Picking a fight with an extreme member of your constituency reassured a lot of moderates. Sometimes the Democrats will even abandon one of their causes in the service of advancing a newer, more exciting cause. Consider their insistence that biologically male trans athletes be allowed to compete in women’s sports, and the telling spectacle of swimmer Lia Thomas going from obscure male athlete, to a dominating force as a woman. After fighting for Title IX, they chose to eliminate the opportunity of women to meaningfully compete in most sports, to serve the Orwellian fiction that there is no unfairness in allowing a biological male to compete against women. It often seems like the Democrats deliberately try to shock and offend moderates and conservatives with nonsensical stunts. For example, what free-associational brainstorm came up with the idea of having drag queens perform readings for young children? What’s the point, other than shock value?

BLACK FRIDAY SALE!!

The Democrats are like a young boy who has just learned a new swear word and is determined to use it as much as possible to impress his pals with his naughty antics. Obviously, most of the motivation to support a flawed candidate comes from the pragmatic quest to keep “your side” in power. And both parties do this. To illustrate the Democrats’ willingness to accept a politician “with baggage,” consider the episode of Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia, who faced calls to resign when caught appearing in blackface in old photos. Now, one thing that Democrats have repeatedly demonstrated that they won’t tolerate is blackface, so they were forced to look at the next in succession. However, the lieutenant governor, a Democrat, was then facing rape and sexual assault charges, a big no-no, so they were forced to look at the third in succession, the attorney general, also a Democrat. Unfortunately, he also had a “blackface problem” in his history. The party then found that the fourth in succession had a far worse disqualification—he was Republican! So the party’s “high-minded” moral concerns quickly evaporated and yielded to practical concerns, and the party decided that blackface and sexual violence weren’t that big a deal after all, and Northam was suddenly deemed politically “rehabilitated.” Joe Biden is another example of a problematic candidate who the party pragmatically coalesced behind in order to win. Stuck with a history of endorsing supposedly racist law and order policies, facing allegations of sexual assault, with video of inappropriate nuzzling and pawing of women and girls, the Hunter Biden corruption scandals, and being only occasionally coherent, he was no one’s idea of a viable candidate until the party realized that no one else in the “Democratic clown car” was moderate enough to beat the loathed Trump. So, when you wonder why we will vote for someone like Trump or other flawed Republicans, take a hard, clear-eyed look at the Democratic alternative, and ask yourself, “What other choice do we have?” ∆ John Donegan is a retired attorney in Pismo Beach who spends a lot of time in the voting booth holding his nose.

The Shredder

The chop! N othing gets SLO County more riled up than traffic. Traffic! Think about any sort of housing development project proposed for anywhere in the county—a county that’s so far behind in creating enough units to shelter its population that it might not ever catch up. We always hear this: “This place is beginning to look like Los Angeles. Too much development, too many people, too much traffic! I moved up here to get away from LA—not to live in another LA.” Cue eye roll. However, if you’re headed south from San Luis Obispo after work, you have a legitimate gripe (not about this 280,000-people strong county being even remotely similar to LA, but about traffic). It’s a bottleneck. And if you’re thinking about using the truck travel lane—that magical third lane on the right side of the freeway that starts around Avila Beach Drive—to illegally pass all the idiots waiting in stop-and-go traffic, keep an eye out for Pismo Beach City Councilmember Sheila Blake. She may be out there with a nail strip trying to stop all the assholes like you “speeding down” and thinking “ah ha ha, I’m going to beat out all these other people.” She jokingly asked Caltrans if that was a possibility during the Nov. 15 council meeting when the city was updated about the big project to alleviate rush hour traffic. “Couldn’t we do something to these people?” she asked with a laugh.

Caltrans is doing something to those people. Say goodbye to that lane and hello to something called a part-time travel lane. It’s not going to happen anytime soon, but it’s going to happen eventually. And while most of the thousands of commuters who head south on a daily basis will be ecstatic, City Councilmember Mary Ann Reiss isn’t all that happy about a federal safety requirement the Five Cities Multimodal Transportation Network Enhancement Project (What? Why? The acronym doesn’t even roll off the tongue—FCMTNEP). Turns out that those concrete barriers that are supposed to protect drivers from oncoming traffic gone wrong aren’t high enough along the Shell Beach straightaway. But Reiss thinks they’re “too high now.” An additional 10 inches would apparently be “unacceptable.” What about all those drivers who want to stare at the Pacific Ocean instead of the road? How will they live?! They’re going to have to shift their gaze 10 inches, I guess. Speaking of unacceptable. Oceano is unacceptable. Not the place or its residents, though, only the squeaky wheels clamoring for the most attention. Those people happen to belong to warring factions—currently on the Oceano Advisory Council (OAC) and the Vitality Advisory Council of

Oceano (VACO). And those people love to share the overly-long, bitter, accusatory email threads and social media posts between each other with New Times. Can you believe so-and-so? What a jerk? Actually, we can’t believe any of you. And your grammar is terrible. Grow up! What sort of messed up game of Family Feud are they playing? How much drama should one town of 7,600 people generate? Should they be fighting over whether a pumpkin carving contest is under the purview of an advisory council? Should an advisory council really be writing an ordinance to regulate vacation rentals? No. Now the OAC is on the chopping block with 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton wielding the butcher knife. And she just might bring the blade down before she hightails it off the dais. I say, do it! Actually, get rid of them both. What are they doing for the community by conducting a mudslinging contest complete with ideological tirades and personal vendettas? Looking back through the county’s good ol’ community advisory council handbook, it seems like the county created these councils as a way to give unincorporated communities a more direct way to let the county and their respective representatives know what they need and want from proposed developments and ordinances impacting their regions. “Community advisory council membership should reflect a broad crosssection of the community,” it states— something that neither does, obviously. VACO caters to the business community and pro-off-road interests,

while the OAC caters to the opposite. Oceano needs one council that represents everyone, that represents the needs and wants of all the area’s residents and is welcoming to everyone who wants to give their input, that’s interested in compromise. I’m not sure whether Compton contributed to or just witnessed the decompensation of civil civic engagement in Oceano—she’s had it out for the OAC for quite some time now. But her successor, Jimmy Paulding, is going to have to fix it. Speaking of successors, when will we know if 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson reigned supreme over challenger Bruce Jones? Don’t hold your breath. Everyone in the county is full of angst waiting for the results on the Nov. 8 election—and all the Clerk-Recorder’s Office can say is there are almost 28,000 ballots left to count, it doesn’t know how many it will count this week, and everyone gets Thanksgiving off. So, election day is turning into election month. Only 781 votes separate the Bruces. And that race will determine whether our county board leans conservative or liberal. I guess we can all be thankful this year that we don’t know the outcome of a vote that could ruin enjoying our annual 4,500-calorie consumption day where we celebrate colonialism. Go America. ∆ The Shredder is trotting for turkeys. Send a chopping block to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

Laugh Therapy hosts SLO comedian Bob Powers and other comics

The Maverick Saloon in Santa Ynez presents its next Laugh Therapy event on Wednesday, Nov. 30, from 8 to 10 p.m. The show includes sets from a handful of stand-up comedians, including San Luis Obispo-based comic Bob Powers and headliner Jim Summers, a popular touring comic and former prison guard. Throughout his comedy career, Summers has opened for Robin Williams, Paul Rodriguez, and other legendary comedians. Before diving into stand-up comedy about 20 years ago, Summers worked as a prison guard for 15 years, at multiple prisons in California. “If you ever wanted an honest glimpse of the world through the eyes of a former prison guard, this is a must-see performer,” according to press materials. Powers, who will open for the show, is no stranger to local stages across the Central Coast and currently hosts his own ongoing comedy show at the 15 Degrees C Wine Shop, Bar, and Restaurant in Templeton. Other featured comedians in the show include Santa Barbarabased comedian Courtney Rainwater, a recent competitor in the inaugural Santa Barbara Laugh Festival in early November, and prolific actor, writer, and comic Aldo Juliano, whose credits include writing work on The Jimmy Kimmel Show. Tickets to Laugh Therapy are $20 and available online in advance at my805tix.com. The event is open to ages 21 and over. The Maverick Saloon is located at 3687 Sagunto St., Santa Ynez. The show starts at 8 p.m., doors open at 7:30 p.m., and attendees are encouraged to stop by early to enjoy items from the venue’s “farm to saloon” menu, available for purchase. Local wines will also be available for purchase throughout the event and after the show. The bar will close at midnight.

THE MENU (R)

Arts ark Mylod (The Big White, What’s Your Number?) directs this horror-comedy about a young couple—Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Tyler (Nicholas Hoult)—who travel to a remote island to eat at an exclusive restaurant under the aegis of chef Slowik (Ralph Fiennes), whose lavish meal comes with some unexpected surprises. (106 min.)

Glen We’ve both worked in the restaurant industry, and I think we agree that the 2022 TV series The Bear, available on Hulu, is a more accurate depiction of what it’s like behind the scenes, but this black comedy is more interested in skewering capitalism and classism than it is the high-end restaurant biz. Don’t get me wrong: The Menu absolutely mocks the absurd lengths chefs go to cater to the foodie culture, from dishes plated with tweezers to exotic methods of creating foams, emulsions, and gels. Yet what this film is really interested in dissecting are those with too much money for their own good; people who look down on the underclass with derision and disgust; people who think they’re untouchable and above retribution. The evening chef Slowik has in mind will prove those guests wrong. Anna The molecular gastronomy pretentiousness of this meal and the type of people who seek out this sort of experience is what just completely annoys me. Don’t get me wrong—you’ll find me at any farm-to-table or winemaker’s dinner I have the chance to attend. I don’t even mind a foam now and again. But I’ll just say it: Chef worship is dumb. Being impressed with someone who’s great at their job and has a passion is wonderful; pretending they’re gods is not. However, chef Slowik has decided to play God himself in some weird game of righting wrongs he perceives to have happened.

The guests are all pretty unlikeable, except for Margot, who we find out has taken the place of Tyler’s original date. Besides her and Tyler, there’s a group of three douchey finance guys, an aging movie star and his assistant desperate to leave her job, an older couple, and a food critic and her “yes” man.

Taylor-Joy is also great as Margot, who doesn’t buy into this high-end characters deserve what they get, but gastronomy crap and who gets under going after an actor because you didn’t like his film, or torturing a longtime client Slowik’s skin by not touching dish after dish.

slowly learn about Cornelia’s backstory and what led her to America. Her fiancé, Thomas Trafford (Tom Hughes), preceded her, looking for a piece of land to run a cattle operation funded by her father, who also sent along David Melmont (Rafe Spall), who’s “good with figures” and knows how to get things done. He’s also a real slimeball who gets involved with a trio of rogue soldiers out for revenge against the Indian population. The series is beautifully filmed by cinematographer Arnau Valls Colomer, and the acting is superb, especially by the principals—Blunt, Spencer, and Spall—but the supporting cast also shines, in particular Stephen Rea, Ciarán Hinds, and Toby Jones. The Old West was wild, and as depicted in The English, it was also a testing ground for a person’s character. While somewhat meandering, each tight spot that arrives rachets up tension until the fitting conclusion. (Six 51-min. episodes) —Glen

f you need to escape the family for a few hours or work off that massive holiday meal or stave off the inevitable tryptophan high by staying off the couch until bedtime on Thanksgiving Day, then the Poetry Church series has you covered when indie rock hero Bill Callahan plays the SLO Guild Hall on Thursday, Nov. 24 (6 to 10 p.m.; $16 presale at eventbrite.com). Billed as “Uncle Bill’s Thanksgiving Parade,” the event will start with several opening acts including Nashville-based folk singer-songwriter Ziona Riley, followed by a simple pig (Eric Douglas Alexander, a wandering mystic poet), Portland art-pop and neo-psyche act !mindparade, Martha’s Vineyard-based classically trained viola player Nina Violet, then Dia (Danielle Birritella’s experimental baroque-pop project), and then SLO expat Carver Cordes (formerly of Dedications, the Shants, Night Jerks, the Khans, and the Levi Valentines), who’s “coming down from Oakland to play some local favorites with my Unboyfriendables bandmate Adam Dietz and special guest Joel Lewis Tolbert,” he wrote. After those openers comes the opener, Texas songwriter Jerry David DeCicca, formerly of The Black Swans, who’s released four solo records. He lives in Bulverde “with his partner, his dog, three cats, and five toads,” and he “owns and operates a vocational rehabilitation agency that serves the Hill Country and surrounding areas.” Finally, the headliner! Bill Callahan, who used to perform under the name Smog, is touring in support of his eighth solo record, Y TIL AER , another lo-fi gem filled with intimate songs bristling with inner turmoil.

spare, and deeply personal, “his painfully intimate songs ping-pong wildly through a scrapbook of childhood recollections, failed relationships, bizarre fetishes, and dashed hopes,” his bio explains. His deep, elastic, rumbling voice is extraordinarily emotive, and the lyrics never fail to surprise. This should be a terrific evening of artistry. “There’s also a charity aspect in that a free meal will be provided to folks in need in the dining hall,” Cordes noted. “Also, a portion of the proceeds will go to Lumina Alliance and Transitions-Mental Health Association.”

Formed at Chico State about 30 years ago, they caught the interest of super producer Rick Rubin before they’d even finished college, signing to his American Recordings label. “In the decades to come, the group would go on to release 10 critically acclaimed studio albums and cement themselves as architects of a new breed of California rock and soul, one equally informed by the breezy harmonies of the Beach Boys, the funky roots of The Band, and the psychedelic Americana of Buffalo Springfield,” their bio accurately describes.

Fried and Loaded is SLO’s new french fry and tater tot spot to keep late-night hunger at bay

I

t’s hard to find a good french fry, and while slicing, soaking, and double-frying potatoes seems like a straightforward process, most people are hesitant to go all out when that urge to snack calls. That’s where Fried and Loaded comes in. Open starting in late October, the eatery on San Luis Obispo’s Santa Rosa Street dishes out piping hot french fries and tater tots topped with chicken, steak, sausage gravy, shrimp, and/or Beyond meat. Owner Shay Zepeda told New Times that he wants the joint to be a fun hangout space for the county’s teenagers and college students. “I felt like we were lacking that niche for the college kids. I want this place specifically for our Cal Poly, Cuesta, and even our high school students,” he said. “I want something fun and different.” Zepeda has deep roots with SLO County’s community. Raised on the North Coast, the Los Osos resident’s dad went to Morro Bay High School and his grandfather worked at the local prison. During his high school years, Zepeda worked at Sonic Drive-In in Bakersfield. Memories from that job inspired him to create Fried and Loaded. “They had the classic cars on Fridays. I enjoyed that vibe of community and hanging out with your friends,” he said. “It’s just good, clean, safe fun. That’s what I want to bring here, something that’s not on every corner.” Zepeda added that he took time to assess the standard of his food. French fries and tater tots are simple, but the sparse ingredients and the cooking technique that go into making them leave little room to hide errors. “When you do taste these fried foods or fair foods, you do taste the quality. It’s not just another fast food place. You’re gonna

Fried and Loaded, SLO’s new late-night restaurant specializing in french fries and tots, is located at 13 Santa Rosa St. It’s open from noon to 10:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from noon to 12:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

get a nice, big plate,” he said. He’s right. For $13, I ordered the honey garlic steak fries, which is already a customer favorite. I added grilled onions and jalapeños for 50 cents each. Zepeda brought out crispy fries loaded with steak (teres major, to be specific, from the chuck section), bacon, and cheddar. It was spicy, garlicky, fresh, and hot. Perfect for the cold weather. Zepeda said that anything with the honey garlic sauce on it is a hit with customers. It’s also drizzled on the steak and shrimp fries. “It’s something special. It’s sweet but there’s a nice little kick. There’s cayenne pepper in it, so there’s a little sizzle,” he said. Other bestsellers include the buffalo chicken with house ranch. All of Fried and Loaded’s toppings can be put on a choice of fries, tater tots, or a mix of the two. Less than a month old on Nov. 15, the fry spot already has regulars. “I had a guy that’s been here every day that we’ve been open. The Cal Poly football team has also been here three or four times,” Zepeda said. But fries and tater tots aren’t Fried and Loaded’s only offerings. Hungry customers can cool off with rolled ice cream, too. From the store’s cold bar, they get front-row views of Zepeda chopping, spackling, and rolling six signature flavors like banana split, strawberry cheesecake, and espresso Oreo chip. “We’ve been wanting to reinvent it as FLAVOR continued page 32

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, (cashier’s check(s) must be made payable to National Default Servicing Corporation), drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state; will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below.

The requirements of California Civil Code Section 2923.5(b)/2923.55(c) were fulfilled when the Notice of Default was recorded. 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 ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may

LEGAL NOTICES be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call or visit this Internet Web site www.ndscorp.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case 22-20025-SP-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT*: You may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call 888-264-4010, 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 trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale. If you think you may qualify as an “eligible tenant buyer” or “eligible bidder,” you should consider contacting an attorney or appropriate real estate professional immediately for advice regarding this potential right to purchase. *Pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code, the potential rights described herein shall apply only to public auctions taking place on or after January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2025, unless later extended.

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.

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.

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY AND INTENT TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION For San Luis Obispo Creek Bank Repair Project (City File EID-0481-2022) The City of San Luis Obispo has completed the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed San Luis Obispo Creek Bank Repair Project. The IS/MND found the following environmental factors to be less than significant with mitigation incorporated: Aesthetics, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Geology and Soils, Hydrology and Water Quality, Noise, and Tribal Cultural Resources. Mitigation measures required to reduce each of these impacts to a less-than-significant level include: nighttime work requirements; fugitive dust reduction; equipment idling restrictions; naturally-occurring asbestos evaluation; minimization of asbestos-related impacts; worker environmental awareness program (biological resources); project delineation, staging areas, materials storage, and waste management; best management practices (BMPs) to protect water quality; invasive species management; pre-construction surveys for special-status plant species; avoidance and minimization measures for Pacific lamprey; steelhead capture and relocation; avoidance and minimization measures for California red-legged frog; avoidance and minimization measures for other special-status amphibians and reptiles; pre-construction survey for special-status birds and other nesting birds; onsite biological monitoring; habitat mitigation and monitoring program; worker environmental awareness program (cultural resources); BMPs for unanticipated discovery of cultural resources; BMPs for discovery of human remains; implementation of geotechnical design features; noise-reducing BMPs; City approval and personnel briefing; and archaeological monitoring. The specific mitigation requirements and monitoring requirements are described in detail in the Draft IS/MND. The project is located at the intersection of Johnson Avenue and Pismo Street (APNs 002-341-007 and 002-341-016). The project site is not included on any of the lists enumerated under Section 65962.5 of the Government Code. The City of San Luis Obispo proposes to repair drainage control infrastructure along the banks of an approximately 180-linear foot stretch of San Luis Obispo Creek. The Project would include removal of the deteriorated concrete footing and construction of a new concrete footing and soil nail wall over the top of the deteriorating concrete slab bank protection; vegetation thinning and sediment removal as necessary; excavation on the westerly side of the creek to remove sediment buildup and expand creek capacity and resiliency; addition concrete weirs to encourage ponding and enhance fish habitat; and revegetation with native riparian trees and shrubs. Reference copies of the IS/MND are available on the City’s website at https://www.slocity.org/government/department-directory/communitydevelopment/documents-online/environmental-review-documents. If you are unable to access the internet, please contact Wyatt BankerHix at wbanker@slocity.org or (805) 783-7859 to arrange for an alternative means to view the study. The required 30-day public review period for the IS/MND will extend from November 28, 2022 to December 28, 2022. Anyone interested in commenting on the document should submit a written statement to the City of San Luis Obispo, Public Works Department, 919 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, Attention: Wyatt Banker-Hix, Engineer III, or by email at wbanker@slocity.org, by 5:00 p.m., by December 28, 2022. The item is tentatively scheduled with the City of San Luis Obispo City Council on February 7, 2023 to consider approval of the project and adoption of the IS/MND. Interested persons can access the City Council agenda at https://www.slocity.org/government/mayor-and-city-council/ agendas-and-minutes to locate the agenda of the public hearing for this project.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology

LAST-MINUTE GIFT GUIDE

Homework: In what process have you gone halfway, and you really should go all the way? Newsletter.freewillastrology.com ARIES (March 21-April 19): One of your callings as an Aries is to take risks. You’re inclined to take more leaps of faith than other people, and you’re also more likely to navigate them to your advantage—or at least not get burned. A key reason for your success is your keen intuition about which gambles are relatively smart and which are ill-advised. But even when your chancy ventures bring you exciting new experiences, they may still run you afoul of conventional wisdom, peer pressure, and the way things have always been done. Everything I have described here will be in maximum play for you in the coming weeks.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your keynote comes from teacher Caroline Myss. She writes, “Becoming adept at the process of selfinquiry and symbolic insight is a vital spiritual task that leads to the growth of faith in oneself.” Encouraging you to grow your faith in yourself will be one of my prime intentions in the next 12 months. Let’s get started! How can you become more adept at self-inquiry and symbolic insight? One idea is to ask yourself a probing new question every Sunday morning, like “What teachings and healings do I most want to attract into my life during the next seven days?” Spend the subsequent week gathering experiences and revelations that will address that query. Another idea is to remember and study your dreams, since doing so is the number one way to develop symbolic insight. For help, I recommend the work of Gayle Delaney: tinyurl.com/interviewyourdreams

(May 21-June 20): The TV science fiction show Legends of Tomorrow features a ragtag team of imperfect but effective superheroes. They travel through time trying to fix aberrations in the timelines caused by various villains. As they experiment and improvise, sometimes resorting to wildly daring gambits, their successes outnumber their stumbles and bumbles. And on occasion, even their apparent mistakes lead to good fortune that unfolds in unexpected ways. One member of the team, Nate, observes, “Sometimes we screw up—for the better.” I foresee you Geminis as having a similar modus operandi in the coming weeks.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I like how Cancerian poet Stephen Dunn begins his poem, “Before We Leave.” He writes, “Just so it’s clear—no whining on the journey.” I am offering this greeting to you and me, my fellow Cancerians, as we launch the next chapter of our story. In the early stages, our efforts may feel like drudgery, and our progress could seem slow. But as long as we don’t complain excessively and don’t blame others for our own limitations, our labors will become easier and quite productive.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo poet Kim Addonizio writes a lot about love and sex. In her book Wild Nights, she says, “I’m thinking of dating trees next. We could just stand around all night together. I’d murmur, they’d rustle, the wind would, like, do its wind thing.” Now might be a favorable time for you, too, to experiment with evergreen romance and arborsexuality and trysts with your favorite plants. When was the last time you hugged an oak or kissed an elm? JUST KIDDING! The coming weeks will indeed be an excellent time to try creative innovations in your approach to intimacy and adoration. But I’d rather see your experiments in togetherness unfold with humans.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In her book Daughters of the Stone, Virgo novelist Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa tells the tale of five generations of Afro-Cuban women, her ancestors. “These are the stories of a time lost to flesh and bone,” she writes, “a time that lives only in dreams and memories. Like a primeval wave, these stories have carried me, and deposited me on the morning of today. They are the stories of how I came to be who I am, where I am.” I’d love to see you explore your own history with as much passion and focus, Virgo. In my

astrological opinion, it’s a favorable time for you to commune with the influences that have made you who you are.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with astrological omens, here’s my advice for you in the coming weeks: 1. Know what it takes to please everyone, even if you don’t always choose to please everyone. 2. Know how to be what everyone wants you to be and when they need you to be it, even if you only fulfill that wish when it has selfish value for you. 3. DO NOT give others all you have and thereby neglect to keep enough to give yourself. 4. When others are being closed-minded, help them develop more expansive finesse by sharing your own reasonable views. 5. Start thinking about how, in 2023, you will grow your roots as big and strong as your branches.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Even if some people are nervous or intimidated around you, they may be drawn to you nonetheless. When that happens, you probably enjoy the power you feel. But I wonder what would happen if you made a conscious effort to cut back just a bit on the daunting vibes you emanate. I’m not saying they’re bad. I understand they serve as a protective measure, and I appreciate the fact that they may help you get the cooperation you want. As an experiment, though, I invite you to be more reassuring and welcoming to those who might be inclined to fear you. See if it alters their behavior in ways you enjoy and benefit from.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z has stellar advice for his fellow Sagittarians to contemplate regularly: “Ain’t nothin’ wrong with the aim; just gotta change the target.” In offering Jay-Z’s advice, I don’t mean to suggest that you always need to change the target you’re aiming at. On many occasions, it’s exactly right. But the act of checking in to evaluate whether it is or isn’t the right target will usually be valuable. And on occasion, you may realize that you should indeed aim at a different target.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You now have extra power to exorcise ghosts and demons that are still lingering from the old days and old ways. You are able to transform the way your history affects you. You have a sixth sense about how to graduate from lessons you have been studying for a long time. In honor of this joyfully tumultuous opportunity, draw inspiration from poet Charles Wright: “Knot by knot I untie myself from the past / And let it rise away from me like a balloon. / What a small thing it becomes. / What a bright tweak at the vanishing point, blue on blue.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In accordance with current astrological rhythms, I am handing over your horoscope to essayist Anne Fadiman. She writes, “I have always felt that the action most worth watching is not at the center of things, but where edges meet. I like shorelines, weather fronts, international borders. There are interesting frictions and incongruities in these places, and often, if you stand at the point of tangency, you can see both sides better than if you were in the middle of either one.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Over the course of my life, I have been fortunate to work with 13 psychotherapists. They have helped keep my mental health flourishing. One of them regularly reminded me that if I hoped to get what I wanted, I had to know precisely what I wanted. Once a year, she would give me a giant piece of thick paper and felt-tip markers. “Draw your personal vision of paradise,” she instructed me. “Outline the contours of the welcoming paradise that would make your life eminently delightful and worthwhile.” She would also ask me to finish the sentence that begins with these words: “I am mobilizing all the energy and ingenuity and connections I have at my disposal so as to accomplish the following goal.” In my astrological opinion, Pisces, now is a perfect time to do these two exercises yourself. ∆
