Oceano Dunes workshop canceled after issues with State Parks’ dust reduction plan

T

he San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) recently canceled a public workshop on dust mitigation at the Oceano Dunes, citing California State Parks’ failure to complete an adequate work plan for mitigation efforts in the park. The workshop, which was planned for Oct. 1, was initially scheduled so community members would have an opportunity to look over and discuss State Parks’ plan for reducing dust emissions in the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. State Parks is required to submit such a report to the APCD and its Science Advisory Group annually as part of a legal order the agencies agreed to several months ago requiring State Parks to cut dust emissions in Oceano by 50 percent by 2023. While State Parks did submit two drafts of an annual work plan for 2019—the first on the Aug. 1 deadline, and a revised version was completed by Sept. 13—both were rejected by the APCD and its Science Advisory Group. Jimmy Paulding, an Arroyo Grande City Council member and APCD board member, said both rejected reports outlined dust reduction strategies that were “woefully inadequate” and fell way short of what needs to be done to improve air quality near the park. “From plan to plan, we see this lack of willingness to work in good faith,” Paulding said of State Parks, “to get the job done.” Instead of working to make Oceano a safe place for locals and wildlife, Paulding said State Parks has consistently obstructed and slowed the dust mitigation process at nearly every level, a complaint brought up by a number of Central Coast residents and commissioners at a California Coastal Commission meeting in July. There, the Coastal Commission considered imposing regulations that would have limited off-highway vehicle riding in some portions of the Oceano Dunes, activities that are thought to increase potentially dangerous

DUNES DRAMA Hundreds of people from across the state attended a California Coastal Commission meeting in San Luis Obispo on July 11, where commissioners considered a recommendation to limit offhighway vehicle riding in the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area.

dust particles emitted by the park that travel to neighboring communities. The proposed conditions were reluctantly voted down by the Coastal Commission after hours of impassioned public comment and State Parks Director Lisa Mangat’s repeated promises to work in good faith to reduce dust emissions. After that meeting, Paulding said he had some restored hope that State Parks would do its part to improve the situation in Oceano, hope that he said is now lost. With no approved plan to discuss, APCD Officer Gary Willey said he was forced to cancel the public workshop. Willey’s next objective is to schedule an APCD hearing on where to go next. The district could either have an informational hearing on a State Parks work plan, if one is submitted and approved, “or we’ll have a hearing that considers taking other action.” APCD’s hearing board could decide to change

the legal order under which the dust mitigation process is currently operating. The board, Willey said, could choose to make the process much more stringent and difficult for State Parks to adhere to. In a statement emailed to New Times, State Parks officials said that despite the Oct. 1 workshop cancellation, the agency remains committed to developing a “mutually acceptable” draft work plan and working with the APCD. State Parks outlined a number of ongoing dust reduction strategies at Oceano, including more than 100 acres of land that have been fenced off to riding, increased wind fencing, and plant installations. Officials said additional dust treatments are being analyzed. “We look forward to our continued discussions with the Air Pollution Control District,” the statement reads, “and to new dust mitigation efforts.” Δ —Kasey Bubnash

Forced out, Grand View tenants ask Paso for help

“The impact that this causes on the city is going to be significant,” he continued, “because when somebody becomes homeless, you’re going to see their children start to have truancy problems, crime rates go up, you have increased hospitalization, and you have less productivity because people can no longer work.” The attorneys wanted the City Council to put the issue on its agenda for the next meeting. The city declined the request, for now, waiting until after a public meeting between local organizations, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing and the Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo (HASLO), and the tenants takes place. The meeting, put together by Assistant City Manager Sarah Johnson-Rios, is slated for Oct. 9 from 5 to 8 p.m. at 80 Cary St. in Paso, a HASLO location.

On the heels of a SLO County Superior Court judge’s ruling to allow the Grand View Apartment owners to go out of business and evict their tenants, the soon-to-be former residents are requesting aid from the city of Paso Robles. At the Oct. 1 Paso Robles City Council meeting, public comment began with the tenants’ attorneys asking the city to help their clients in any way it can. “Your city is facing a humanitarian crisis on its hands caused by some greedy out-of-town landlords who have held Grand View for every dime it was worth while not maintaining the apartments. The crisis is going to fall on your working poor,” said Allen Hutkin, co-counsel for the tenants.

Grand View is made up of six buildings containing 55 units of one- to threebedroom apartments, almost all of which are occupied by families—some with small children—and seniors. In May, a few tenants sought the help of the SLO Legal Assistance Foundation to file a class action complaint against the owners of the complex—Ebrahim and Fahimeh Madadi—for slum conditions. Tenants were granted a temporary restraining order that prevented the landlords from collecting rent, evicting the tenants, or retaliation against the tenants, and for the landlords to begin making the apartments habitable. In August, the landlords announced a decision to go out of business rather than fix the apartments, and they planned to evict the tenants and sell the property. SLO County Superior Court Judge Ginger Garrett agreed to allow the landlords to follow through with their plan. “We tried to get as much time for the tenants as possible, but the court ruled that depending on how long the tenants lived there, they have 60 or 90 days to find somewhere else to live,” SLO Legal Assistance Foundation legal director Stephanie Barclay said at the Oct. 1 meeting. Barclay gave the council a glimpse of one family who would be affected by the judge’s ruling. She said Beatrice and Raul live in the complex with their three sons: 3-year-old Marcos, 10-year-old Saul, and 11-year-old Pedro. Marcus has autism, and he lights up when he plays with his toy horses or puts on his cowboy hat and boots. He wants to be a cowboy when he grows up, Barclay said. Pedro attends George H. Flamson Middle School, and Saul attends Bauer Speck Elementary School. They both run track in their schools. The father of these boys has worked at J. Lohr Vineyards and Wines for seven years picking grapes and working on irrigation. The mother works in Paso Robles as well. “They’ve been looking for another place to live, but haven’t found anything,” Barclay said. —Karen Garcia

Affordable housing project lands in Pismo Beach instead of at Hillside

The controversy over Hillside Church in Grover Beach—and a low-income housing and homeless services facility that was proposed for the location—appears to be coming to an end. Peoples’ Self-Help Housing and 5Cities Homeless Coalition announced on Oct. 1 that they had secured another property where they will provide the permanent and supportive housing facilities that were originally proposed at Hillside. The new property, located at 855 N. 4th St. in Pismo Beach, cost more than $2 million and will hold a community center, fulltime on-site property management, and about 50 units of affordable housing—10 to 15 of which will be used for youth in transition, according to Peoples’ Self-Help Housing President and CEO John Fowler. The project was approved unanimously by the Pismo Beach City Council on Sept. 17, and Fowler said the necessary redesign and remodel work will likely

VIEWER DISCRETION take about three years to complete. “I think this is going to go smoothly,” Fowler told New Times, “and hopefully quickly.” The new property is part of a larger plan, headed by Peoples’ SelfHelp Housing and 5Cities Homeless Coalition, to expand homeless services in SLO County, which is being funded by the California Homeless Emergency Aid Program Grant. The full expansion— including new office space for 5Cities, affordable and transitional housing, an an emergency warming center—was initially planned for the Hillside Church property in Grover Beach. But neighborhood opposition to the project, followed by litigation over the church’s ownership, put the plans in limbo. After 5Cities secured office space at 100 South St. in Grover Beach in August, and with the new property for housing in Pismo, Fowler said Peoples’ Self-Help Housing plans to officially cancel escrow on Hillside soon. All that remains unresolved in the project, he said, is finding a location for a new warming center. Although the warming center isn’t a part of and won’t be funded by the California Homeless Emergency Aid Program, Fowler said it’s needed, and the search for the right location is on. “We’re hoping we can find a site the community will embrace,” Fowler said, adding that with cold weather on its way, he’s hoping to find property soon. “Time is of the essence here.” —Kasey Bubnash

The Groves on 41 rallies support to keep its sign

A decorative water tower created to advertise The Groves on 41, a motherand-daughter-run olive farm, has caused enough controversy that SLO County said the sign might have to be removed. Although the county has had ongoing issues with the sign since 2016, more than 1,000 people signed a petition on care2. com in support of saving the farm’s sign. “We are at the point where all we want is for this to go away. We want to go on and not lose our sign if we don’t have to,” said Karen Tallent, mother and Groves on 41 owner. Issues began, Tallent said, when she installed an air conditioning unit in her barn specifically for olive oil storage—the perishable item needs to be kept at 62 degrees. “We didn’t get a permit for it because we didn’t know it was needed. So we got cited for having air conditioning that was not permitted,” she said. When a code enforcement officer went to the property to inspect the barn in question, he noticed the water tower structure that she had put up months before. Tallent said that before she put up the water tower sign made by her son-in-law,

by Jayson Mellom

she called the SLO County Planning and Building Department to make sure it was OK to construct, and she got approval. But the code enforcement officer said he wanted an “as-built”—a revised drawing submitted by a contractor upon completion of a project—for the sign. Tallent said she complied. Trevor Keith, SLO County’s Planning and Building director, said this started when the department received a code compliance complaint about the water tank sign on Sept. 28, 2016. “Upon further inspection, department staff determined that the water tank sign was in fact an unpermitted structure and was located within the front setback of the property,” Keith told New Times via email. “This investigation further found that unpermitted modification had been made to the agricultural storage barn on the property, and that the converted barn structure was being used as an unpermitted events facility.” Currently, the department states that the sign doesn’t conform with county setback requirements or state building code requirements, and it also doesn’t meet wind load requirements. “If it blows over onto Highway 41, it would create a potentially dangerous situation, risking harm to anyone traveling on Highway 41 in this area,” he said. On mutiple occasions, the department has provided Tallent with options to advertise within guidelines set by the county’s land use ordinance, Keith said. Options include an application for a conditional use permit to request a modification of ordinance requirements, which would include a hearing before the Planning Commission. Another option would allow Tallent to relocate the structure to meet the required 25-foot setback from the property line, or she could replace the water tank with a sign that doesn’t require a building permit. The Groves on 41 also has the option of removing the sign. Tallent said she has lost several thousand dollars trying to make her sign and barn compliant with the county—she doesn’t believe it’s fair to spend more on a conditional use permit. She said she

can’t move the sign farther away from the highway because it will interfere with mechanical harvesting—plus the sign is cemented into the ground with rebar. “To the extent legally and reasonably possible, our department tries to be flexible to the implementation and interpretation of the rules as they are written, in order to account for people’s unique situations and respective property rights,” Keith said. “That being said, the Department of Planning and Building staff including myself, as the director, do not have the authority to arbitrarily change existing regulations.” —Karen Garcia

SLOPD officer reassigned after fatal dog shooting

A San Luis Obispo police officer who shot and killed a dog in its owners’ driveway on Sept. 26 has been taken off his patrol beat while the department further investigates the incident, SLOPD Chief Deanna Cantrell said on Oct. 2. SLOPD Officer Joshua Walsh fatally shot Bubbs, a 7-year-old pit bull-boxer mix, during an encounter that the dog’s owners have decried as “avoidable,” “unnecessary,” and “dangerous.” Walsh shot Bubbs twice in front of his owners Nick Regalia and Riley Manford’s house—reportedly fearing for his safety as police responded to a call about a possible burglary. Bubbs was rushed into emergency surgery, but hours later succumbed to the gunshot wounds. In an emailed statement to New Times on Oct. 2, Cantrell called the incident “a tragic situation” and said she “understands and shares” the community’s concerns. SLOPD is reviewing the shooting, which was recorded on Walsh’s body camera, and Cantrell will determine if Walsh “acted appropriately under the law and totality of the circumstances,” she said. “We take every discharge of a firearm seriously, therefore, the officer has been placed on administrative reassignment NEWS continued page 8

News NEWS from page 7

while this incident is under investigation,” Cantrell said. “This was a tragic situation for the family and our officers, and we are sorry for the family’s loss.” Cantrell noted that state law and SLOPD policy allows officers to use “objectively reasonable force” when necessary to protect themselves, and added that the investigation and any discipline handed out as a result will be confidential. Regalia and Manford claim that Walsh’s use of force in the situation was unnecessary and unreasonable. They plan to file a lawsuit against the city. “My dog didn’t need to die,” Regalia, 33, told New Times. The couple was home on Sept. 26 around 11 a.m. when two SLOPD officers came up their driveway toward the backunit house on the 600 block of Santa Rosa Street. A neighbor reportedly had called in a potential burglary at the home—a false alarm, according to Regalia. He and Manford had been fixing a broken window at the house, which triggered the call. “A window was broken. My girlfriend and I were fixing the outside window,” he said. As the officers approached the house, Bubbs, who was outside untethered, started barking at them. Bubbs spent many of his days out on the house’s front patio, Regalia said, and he had no history of violence. “He just chills in the yard all day. Everybody knows him,” Regalia said.

While one of the officers appeared unfazed by Bubbs, Walsh drew his gun, according to Regalia. As the dog approached the officers, Walsh ordered Manford to gain control of the dog. “He’s pointing the gun at the dog telling her to go into the line of fire and grab the dog, so she was hesitant,” Regalia said. When Bubbs came a few feet from Walsh, he fired three shots, hitting the dog with two. Bubbs ran back into the house, bleeding, and Regalia said he wrapped him in a blanket and rushed him to an animal hospital. After several hours (and $8,000 worth) of emergency surgery, Bubbs was put down. Regalia and Manford believe that the SLOPD’s actions in the moment were unjustified and irresponsible. Regalia said he’s pursuing litigation against the city because “I don’t want this to happen to someone else.” “It doesn’t bring my dog back,” he said. In the wake of the shooting, a GoFundMe page launched to help the couple pay for Bubbs’ emergency vet bills. A recently formed change.org petition also calls for Walsh’s termination. It had 543 signatures at press time. “It’s no wonder people are scared of cops,” Regalia said. “It was just totally avoidable and excessive. To be that scared of dogs? Hit him with your baton or mace him or something. “The police force is just so quick to pull out their guns,” he continued. “There are 10 people living here. It’s dangerous as hell. Something’s got to change.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

Help by design A riana Lovato was raised on the Central Coast by Persian immigrant parents. “I was first-generation born here, and very early, on it was instilled in us that you should be one of the four top professionals. You know, a dentist, lawyer, doctor, or engineer,” Lovato said. Her parents wanted her to be successful, and while she and her brother desired that as well, Lovato yearned to find her own path to success. She followed a creative path of interior design, earning her associate degree at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and her bachelor’s degree in business from the University of LaVerne, working as an assistant designer for five years, starting her own business, and winning several awards in her field. “I was very drawn to interior design, and I kind of just paid attention to the ways spaces made you feel,” Lovato said. Lovato’s business is called Honeycomb Home Design, and for the record, her parents are very proud of her successes thus far. Honeycomb is a boutique interior design studio that specializes in kitchen and bath design, furnishings, remodels, and new construction. Aside from meeting with her clients and understanding their vision for a room or

a home, Lovato said she enjoys being onsite as construction begins so she can help work through inevitable issues that arise. “That’s what I think makes us a little bit different. We’re not your typical decorator, and we’re not just picking out throw pillows and area rugs. It’s a little bit more than that,” she said. As part of being a local business owner, Lovato is always looking for ways to give back to her community. She was recently inspired to donate her time and skills to creating spaces for children with disabilities after working with a client whose son—with cerebral palsy—wasn’t too happy to move into his parents’ new home. “He kept mentioning that the house didn’t feel like his home,” she said. The scope of work that Lovato and her team were working on at the time was a kitchen remodel, so they weren’t working on any other rooms in the home. She wanted to do something for him to make their new home feel comfortable. Lovato gathered other designers and tradespeople in the area to raise enough funds to redecorate his room, paint it, and put motorized windows in. “He was so surprised and happy, he couldn’t stop smiling,” she said. This project was the first of its kind that she had been part of, and it’s

Beware the shark Leaders who don’t listen to voters could take a bite out of your way of life

W

e live in a beautiful part of the world, with open spaces everywhere, mountains and lakes, rivers and valleys. Sometimes as I drive along our (mostly) open roads, looking at the clouds and tree-covered landscapes, I just marvel at the beauty that God and nature have given us here. Economically, we are also doing well, with many well-to-do retirees moving here to enjoy our mild climate and easy lifestyles. Linked to everything, of course, is the growth of the wine (and recently brewing) industry; though not without problems, they have brought significant wealth and improved opportunities to this area. Overall, it’s much better to be in an improving situation rather than a declining one (see the Rust Belt states with their loss of manufacturing). It is important to have smart, honest leadership to protect this wonderful area we all call home, now and in the future. This is a very important topic—don’t take it lightly, or someone or some group will try their best to take some of it away from you. Just because you’re doing OK now, and you think your family is secure, doesn’t mean there aren’t greedier people/ bigger businesses lurking and planning how to improve their situation at the cost of yours. As the saying goes, there’s always a bigger shark in the ocean,

waiting for an opportunity to munch you. The current San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors majority has been favoring its big business/big donor friends now for some time, and many of the rest of us are at risk because of this. For example, the groundwater situation in the Paso Basin, and elsewhere, has been largely ignored for years. The supervisors have known that the basin was being annually over-pumped by more than 2,400 acre-feet of water (that’s a lot of water, folks) for many, many years, and they largely ignored the issue to the great benefit of big business corporate wineries that were sucking the ground dry by inefficient overhead watering of thousands of acres of new grapes. It wasn’t until about 2014, under the pressure of state mandates and hundreds of local individuals’ wells going dry, that current supervisors were forced to come up with a water management plan. Many areas have unique water situations, and each area was supposed to develop its own plan and pay those costs. But the board, against the advice of the county Farm Bureau, the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance, and county staff, decided not to do this, but rather make the general taxpayers (that’s you and me) pay for those studies. So, an approximately $6 million liability was taken off the books of the big wineries and given to the general taxpayer. And that, my friends, is an example of the big shark mentioned above munching on your foot/wallet. Good leadership is important. Without it, we all are at risk of losing our wonderful way of life. Leaders are supposed to listen to their voters and

protect us from big business that really doesn’t give a hoot about our world; they only want to make maximum shortterm profits that benefit out-of-area corporations. Do you think a corporation that has drilled a thousand-foot-plus-deep well—at a cost of a million bucks—and is sucking water out of multiple aquifers really cares about your normal-depth home well that just went dry? Not likely. And here’s a second example of those sharks a-munching: The town of Santa Margarita is very strongly against a proposed new quarry due to the estimate that 273 semi-trucks per day (that’s one every two minutes) will be going down their main street. Fifth District Supervisor Debbie Arnold rolled right over the residents/voters and supported that quarry. Per the Sept. 5 New Times story about

It’s the addition of 273 more trucks per day that folks object to, and wouldn’t you? But Arnold doesn’t listen to her voters; she listens to big business/big donors. And there we go again, everyone. Do you feel that big shark nibbling at your way of life again? We need to change the attitude of the Board of Supervisors, away from protecting the big business/big donors and back to what they should be doing, which is improving and protecting life for all of us. We face serious issues ahead, some of which are wildfires, drought, climate change, and new industries. We need leaders who can look to the future to find innovative solutions, not dictators who protect their friends and ideology at the expense of the rest of us.

#DefundHate: Why we must act

Judaism teaches that everyone is entitled to dignity and honor. One of our most cherished values is to welcome the stranger, especially those fleeing for their survival—because as Jews, we know what it’s like to run from terror and violence, over and over again. Today it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the plight of immigrants to the United States. As of July 2019, 24 immigrants, including seven children, had died while being held in detention centers along our southern border. These asylum-seekers are dying due to inhumane conditions and substandard medical care, while a for-profit prison industry continues to explode, raking in billions in profits from their contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). No one should profit from the pain and suffering of others. ICE has turned a blind eye to the abusive conditions confronting thousands of immigrants

Although there were multiple serious health and safety infringements, ICE did not impose any penalties for these conditions and avoided enforcing inmate facility requirements. According to the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general, “ICE does not adequately hold detention facility contractors accountable for not meeting performance standards.” The good news is that organizations nationwide have come together to speak out and act in opposition to these atrocities. Bend the Arc is a proud member of the Defund Hate coalition led by Detention Watch Network, United We Dream, and other immigrant-led partners speaking up for immigrant rights. So far, the coalition

The federal budget will be voted on soon and appropriations for ICE and CBP (Customs and Border Protection) will be made. We are encouraging our elected officials to pass a budget that cuts the funding for agencies that separate families, put children in cages, and terrorize and kill immigrants.

for justice, fairness, equal treatment, rational governing, and that elusive concept called democracy. The city’s sewer plant is being moved to within a half a mile of the Morro Bay National Estuary! The plant with its highly pressurized system is being built on a creek, allowing spills to have direct access to the estuary via Chorro Creek. In addition, the back of the bay, the closest part of the water body to the sewer plant, is also a designated Marine Protected Area. Picture that disaster waiting to happen. The unpressurized California Men’s Colony wastewater plant has leaked many times. To protect this sensitive and valuable estuary, a referendum petition was circulated to repeal the pre-zoning for the new sewer plant site. Residents collected 1,100-plus signatures in 11 days; that’s an average of 100 signatures a day. Imagine the number we would have reached if we had collected the full 30 days! The public is crying out. For the Morro Bay city manager to state without hesitation or qualification that the city will persist in moving forward—ignoring the will of the voters— is the attitude that defines what has been wrong with the entire five-year process and the current City Council majority.

There are many good reasons to impeach President Donald Trump, but the one I find most compelling that’s never mentioned is his commitment to obstruct any progress that would help fight the inevitable, currently occurring, climate change crisis. He and his appointees, many of them former fossil fuel industry lobbyists, have done their best to roll back all regulations that might help that crisis, from fighting emission standards set by the state of California to opening up previously offlimits land for logging. He has expunged the mention of climate change in government documents and made disastrous appointees to cabinet positions, as well as firing or retiring scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The list of his attempts to destroy President Barack Obama’s laudable environmental achievements are endless. I call him “The Destroyer in Chief” (opposing serious gun control regulation adds to this title). In all this, he is aided and abetted by most Republicans who are spineless and have done nothing to deal with climate change or to pass serious gun control regulations. Impeach!

Earth calling “How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood. … People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. … For more than 30 years, the science has been crystal clear. How dare you look away.” —Greta Thunberg to the U.N. General Assembly

R

ecently, a grocery clerk packing my bags gently complained that it was kind of a pain for him to open the string bags I use for produce. I appreciated his care in making sure that he wasn’t putting ripe mangoes underneath a six-pack of La Croix, but I said I was trying to reduce my use of plastic bags, which increase our carbon/ fossil fuel footprint. He said, “Well, that’s admirable, but it’s fantasy to think we can affect climate change.” This kind of thinking is not only selffulfilling; it’s also a roadmap to despair, cynicism, and inaction. It’s so much easier to deny the truth of climate change, evade responsibility, and in so doing, rob our children of their future, as Greta Thunberg so effectively articulated in her speech to the U.N. last month. Make no mistake. We are beyond climate change—we are in a spiraling climate crisis. This is not hysteria, not specious theory, no leftist plot. The recent report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change tells us that we have only 11 more years before the chain reaction of global warming becomes irreversible. We do not have to accept that we will need to spend an estimated $685 million here in SLO County to hold back rising seas. That extreme heat and drought will cause tens of millions to migrate, and we’ll see food shortages, poisoned oceans, and climate plagues. The problem is huge, but to change the trajectory toward certain disaster for the Earth, we cannot give in to fear, helplessness, depression, and apocalypse fatigue. The planet pleads with us to join Greta and the global and local armies of people mobilizing to take action. Who are they? So many it’s hard to count. If you go to even one local climate action meeting, you will have the opportunity to connect with neighbors who share your sense of urgency.

At the Rise for Climate town hall in San Luis Obispo on Sept. 25, for instance, I met Charles Varni of the SLO Surfrider Foundation; Carmen Bouquin of the Sunrise Movement; David Baldwin of the Plumber & Steamfitters Union; Eric Veium, SLO Climate Coalition Task Force chair; Chris Read, SLO city sustainability director; Rita Casaverde of the Climate Reality Project; and Paul Deis, retired emergency and disaster manager. All knowledgeable, all articulate, all responding to what Varni says is our cosmic call to action. The Sunrise Movement is one of the groups sending out a clarion call. It’s an inspiring, youth-led organization building an army to make climate change an urgent priority. “We are ordinary young people,” the movement’s website states, “who are scared about what the climate crisis means for the people and places we love.” Take Bouquin, a student at Cuesta College. She recalls growing up surrounded by majestic beauty in New Mexico, but depression set in when she recognized the threat to our fragile ecosystem. Her climate anxiety led to her participation in the Measure G campaign to ban fracking in SLO County. “Taking action gave me hope,” Carmen said to me. “I went to my first Sunrise action last year in Sacramento, when we demanded that Gov. Brown halt fossil fuel projects.” Bouquin feels empowered by youth engagement, which brings energy, passion, and a platform for leadership development. When you hear Bouquin talk about the intersection between social and climate justice, you know you’re listening to a leader: “When transitioning to carbon neutrality, we need to make sure we are looking at solutions that help low-income, vulnerable communities,” she writes via email. “Everyone needs access to affordable housing, health care, healthy food, transportation, and safe and clean jobs. All these issues are intertwined.” Emmet Arries is another young SLO climate justice warrior. “I will live with the impacts of the climate crisis my whole life,” he wrote to me. “I see climate activist work as nothing short of preventing international instability due to people fighting over a dwindling resource

pool. I will not be the generation who is complacent in our own destruction.” Then there’s Erin Pearse, a Cal Poly math professor and advisor to the newly formed campus Sunrise Club. Waking to the reality of climate crisis led to depression and outrage. But he found agency in a simple outlet. Inspired by the Extinction Rebellion, whose U.K. members glued themselves to the podium in Parliament, Pearse made signs and carried them around as a oneman protest. “Instead of people responding like I was a crazy person, I got the thumbs-up, and I immediately felt cheered. That simple act contributed to our social and political will to make transformative change,” he said.

Do you want to feel isolated and angry about climate change, or do you want to feel empowered and hopeful? Follow your curiosity, check out the groups taking local action, attend one meeting. For starters, go to: sunrisemovement.org, carbonfreeslo.org, and climaterealityproject.org. As the Sunrise Movement states, “Together, we will change this country and this world, sure as the sun rises each morning.” Please: Let’s heed the Earth’s calling.

The Shredder

Do dogs’ lives matter?

I

t was like the Wild West on the 600 block of Santa Rosa Street last Thursday, Sept. 26. Bullets were ricocheting off the driveway as San Luis Obipso Police Officer Joshua Walsh discharged his service weapon toward an apartment building. What was going on? Was there a kidnapping, an amber alert, a dangerous criminal firing back at Walsh and his responding partner Officer Larry Edwards? Why would an officer need to fire three rounds in a residential area, just a block from the San Luis Obispo Police Department? It was because of a dog. Bubbs was shot on his own property for barking at police who showed up for a non-existent burglary. The 7-year-old pit bull-boxer mix was well known and liked in his neighborhood. He was even chill with the mail carrier. Now he’s dead, and his owners— Nick Regalia and Riley Manford—are stuck with an $8,000 vet bill. Where’s John Wick when you need him, amirite? The fictional assassin played by Keanu Reeves came out of retirement after a Russian mobster killed his dog in John Wick (2014), going on a revenge spree. I’ll be surprised if Barney Fife, er, I mean Walsh, even loses his job. Not that we’ll ever find out what happens to Walsh—as SLOPD Chief Deanna Cantrell said, all of that disciplinary stuff is confidential.

Regalia, who works nights, was sleeping at 11 a.m. when Walsh and Edwards responded to a call of a broken window and burglary. Manford went out to ask the officers what they were doing there, informed them there wasn’t a burglary, but Walsh—gun drawn and pointed at Bubbs—was yelling at Manford to control her barking dog. He shot three times, striking Bubbs twice while one errant shot skidded off the driveway. Is this proper police procedure? Is that something we’ll get to know, Cantrell? Police Capt. Jeff Smith said if an officer thinks the dog is an immediate threat, they can shoot it. Um, what about the officer’s baton, Taser, or Mace? You know, nonlethal means in the middle of a residential area. “That’s the reason why we have laws to keep dogs on leash and tethered,” Smith told New Times. “We’ve had several dog bites and even fatal dog bites. ... You never know if a dog is friendly or not.” How would you be spinning this if that third errant shot had gone through an apartment wall and killed or injured a resident, eh? Or if a bullet had hit Manford as she was getting her dog? Manford said she was afraid to reach out and grab her dog because Walsh was pointing his gun at Bubbs, and she didn’t want to get shot. Which, I’ve got to say, is totally understandable. Why didn’t Edwards, Walsh’s partner, have

his weapon drawn? Did he not feel the “immediate threat” that apparently caused Walsh to shoot Bubbs, or is Edwards a normal human being who could see Bubbs was just barking to protect his property and owner from two people walking up his driveway uninvited? Let’s lay it out here: If a mail carrier can make do with Mace to deal with aggressive dogs, you’d think a trained police officer could, too. Take Walsh’s gun, fire him, and pay Regalia and Manford’s vet bill. And some mandatory training on using nonlethal force to subdue a dog (or, you know, a human)? This whole incident was unnecessary bullshit. And speaking of bullshit, that’s what the residents of Grand View Apartments are wading through as they try to find new housing after Judge Ginger Garrett ruled that the complex’s slumlords, er, I mean landlords— Ebrahim and Fahimeh Madadi—could “go out of business” rather than make their Grand Poo Apartment (yeah, I said it) complex habitable. Hmm. So they got away with running a dump for years, collecting rents and never doing maintenance, and now they’re allowed to evict their tenants, sell off their property, and make fixing it up the

new owner’s problem, eh? Meanwhile, the nearly 200 residents can hit the bricks. Paso’s vacancy rate is less than 2 percent, meaning that housing is tighter than the Madadis’ grasp on their purse strings. How are 54 families going to find new housing at a reasonable price? Any way you slice it, the city of Paso Robles will feel the pain along with Grand View’s residents. There’ll be more homelessness, more police calls, less productivity due to missed work, and more school truancy. How can any of this be fair? Why aren’t there laws that hold property owners accountable? The Madadis should forfeit their apartment complex to the city, and a group like HASLO (The Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo) or Peoples’ Self-Help Housing should be allowed to step in and renovate Grand View and keep these families under their roofs. I know—that’s way too logical a solution. Let’s face it: “Problem-solving” and “government agencies” too often seem like oxymoronic terms. For Grand View’s residents, just as they’re approaching Thanksgiving and Christmas, they’re about to feel firsthand the failure of local government. Ho-ho-ho. ∆ The Shredder doesn’t care what people think of it, but it wants dogs to like it. Send ideas and comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

THE AWARENESS ISSUE IN THE SAME BOAT The Central Coast Dragon Boating Association offers several boat trainings and activities each week in Morro Bay, for a range of skill levels. The nonprofit was founded in 2007 by a group of breast cancer survivors, and it’s grown to more than 100 members today.

BY PET E R J OH N SO N

Paddling for life T

he boat jolts forward faster and faster with each unified stroke. In repetitive, synchronized motions, about a dozen paddlers plunge their oars into the calm morning waters of Morro Bay at the same moment, propelling this 40-foot canoe rapidly along the estuary. At full speed, the vessel feels almost like it’s hovering above the water, the sheer collective will of its tenacious paddlers seemingly defying gravity. Achieving this feeling is one of the goals of dragon boating, an ancient Chinese sport requiring strength, concentration, and teamwork— all traits that going through cancer requires as well. On this Saturday morning, Sept. 28, most of the dragon boat paddlers out on the bay are women who’ve either battled or are still battling breast cancer. Their twice-per-week ritual of training together—in this case, training for competitive races—is a life-affirming escape for them. Each boat member, seated two per row, holds her own paddle, but they move the boat as one. “The minute you step on the boat, you’re a team,” said Miki Gillman of Atascadero, president of the Central Coast Dragon Boating Association (CCDBA) and a breast cancer survivor. “The empowerment comes from moving that boat, and moving it fast.”

Local breast cancer survivors find community, competitive outlet in dragon boating

This particular CCDBA team is well-acquainted with hauling ass on a dragon boat. Last summer, in Hungary, the team took home a gold medal at an international dragon boat festival. This summer, they will travel to France for another competition, with even more paddlers in tow this time. The CCDBA competes in races throughout the year in California, winning the gold at a festival in Long Beach last July. “It was just epic,” Gillman said of the team’s past year. “I think it’s a testament to our training and dedication to practicing. We work hard, and we try to be in the best physical shape we can.” For SurviveOars, as they’re called in the CCDBA, staying in good shape can be “a matter of life and death,” according to Gillman. “Because a lot of us have had some very terrifying cancers, we want to just be in the best shape we can be,” she said. “When you’re feeling half dead from treatment and whatnot, you don’t like that feeling. You want to feel healthy again.” CCDBA SurviveOars aren’t alone in their attraction to dragon boating. The sport has worldwide appeal among cancer-surviving communities, due to its proven medical benefits. In the mid-’90s, a Canadian doctor’s research debunked the long-held theory that women with breast cancer should refrain from strenuous exercise. It found, instead, that the opposite was true, and that dragon boating was a particularly beneficial activity that could even help stave off lymphedema. “It was found that repetitive, strenuous upper body exercise was actually much more conducive to healing and strengthening after having surgery,” said Gail Riley of Morro Bay, a survivor and one of the nonprofit’s founding members in 2007. There are several elements of dragon boating that can prove healing to people going through cancer, CCDBA members said. For one, the serene setting on the bay helps connect paddlers with the outdoors and nature. “When we get there at 8:30 a.m., there’s nobody out on the bay except for the animals—the otters, birds, sea lions, and harbor seals,” Gillman said. “It’s just magic. It’s really special.” Dragon boating also fosters a strong sense of team and community. As far as competitive sports go, dragon boating is the ultimate team game. And for many women who participate, Riley said, it’s their first time playing one. “That’s the one consistent comment that I hear from people who are just in love with the sport,” Riley said. “When you’re in the boat, there is no emphasis on, ‘Well, here’s our star paddler.’ You are only as good as how the team all fits together.” “Timing is incredibly important,” Gillman added. “What you want is all the paddles to hit the water at the same time.”

SURVIVEOARS Many of the women who participate in dragon boating on the Central Coast are breast cancer survivors. A popular sport for cancer survivors worldwide, it offers proven medical benefits for those who partake.

Dragon boating’s inherent sense of unity helps forge deep bonds among CCDBA teammates. For them, the boat is their shared place to push their bodies, to triumph, to grieve, and to support one another through the trials of cancer. If a member goes through a recurrence of their cancer, they rally around them in support. If she’s feeling too sick to paddle, they encourage her to join anyway, to go along for the ride, and feel their love and support “We all have a level of understanding that’s deeper than just anybody, because we’ve all been through it,” Gillman said. “We have had people who have been very sick, and some of our people have actually died.” When a CCDBA member “paddles on,” as they say, the group memorializes them each time in a ritual done out on the bay. “We take the boats out and each person has a flower and we spend some time together talking about the person,” Gillman said. “It’s very moving. When we’re done talking we throw the flowers into the water. And then it’s very special when we paddle away and watch what happens to the flowers and how they arrange themselves.” Those paddlers always remain in the spirit of the group, Gillman said. Their names are etched in plaques that are affixed inside the dragon boats or on benches at the docks. “They’re still a part of us,” she said. “We all learn from each other. We learn from other peoples’ journeys, and we all support each other.”’ After forming 12 years ago as a small group of breast cancer survivors, the CCDBA is more than 100 members strong today. Over the years, donors have helped supply the nonprofit with three dragon boats, which are made DRAGON BOATING continued page 23

THE AWARENESS ISSUE BY CA M I LLI A L A N H A M

The root of violence Stand Strong and RISE focus on domestic and intimate partner violence prevention

D

omestic violence isn’t just a women’s issue. It’s not just a progressive issue, either. It’s a pervasive one. Statistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence indicate it’s an issue that’s most likely affected more than one of the people you are close to: 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some sort of domestic violence by an intimate partner. But those are just statistics. When you put faces with the numbers, it changes the way you see the issue, Marisa Balmana said. Balmana started as a volunteer for RISE (Respect, Inspire, Support, Empower), a San Luis Obispo County nonprofit that provides crisis intervention and treatment services to survivors of sexual assault, before becoming its volunteer coordinator. For four years, she prepped clients for direct services, worked the crisis line, and walked with clients into police interviews. “When you start seeing faces, and it’s way more frequent than you think it would be,” Balmana said. “Chances are it is part of your world and you don’t even know it. It’s affecting people in your world in some capacity.”

As she learned more about intimate partner violence and how to define an unhealthy relationship, she said that she started to realize that physical and emotional abuse is so normalized in our culture that most people don’t understand what a healthy relationship is or what a healthy sex life looks like. And as the people who were close to her started to understand what she did for a living, she said, more and more people came forward to talk to her. Family members and friends, many of whom she never knew were experiencing or had experienced violence and unhealthy relationships, felt safe around her. “It’s so much more expansive than even what you see directly on the job. You hear a lot of the nitty-gritty on the crisis line and in the police interviews,” Balmana said. “It takes a lot of strength and courage to be there with somebody in those moments, and it’s very needed.” Although she no longer works with people in their moments of crisis, she

found another way to give to the cause that she’s passionate about—the Close to Home Community Organizing Team. RISE is spearheading Close to Home with the help of California Department of Public Health funding. The fouryear program that started this year is designed to engage the community to search for the root causes of sexual and intimate partner violence and work together to come up with potential prevention measures. “It just feels a little more tangible in terms of making a difference for me. It’s more on the hopeful side of things,” Balmana said. “Close to Home is so important because it’s sort of giving

things a definition and making it easier to talk about.” Making gender and intimate partner violence easier to talk about is key to prevention work, according to Janae Sargent, the education program manager at RISE. It helps in that search for the root cause of violence, which Sargent said is essential in searching for prevention measures that work.

that reach out to people from all over the community in an effort to build consensus on where violence comes from and how to prevent it. But before they can help facilitate prevention work, Sargent said, they need the community on board with the fact that the problem exists in the first place. That includes conducting surveys, interviewing community members, and working with local students and athletes. “People need to make the real connection about why it’s important to prevent gender-based violence,” Sargent said. “We want to show the community that this is a community issue.” That’s at least in part why San Luis Obispo High School sophomore Stella McSween volunteered to become one of the 24 members of the Close to Home Community Organizing Team. She helped put out the recent Close to Home community survey by attending events such as the Downtown SLO Farmers’ Market and works on the initiative’s social media accounts. “I believe that even if it’s not talked about as much in a small community like San Luis Obispo that sexual assault and domestic violence happen,” McSween said. “It’s a subject with a lot of stigma ... and I believe that it will cause less stigma around the subject.” The organizing team developed the community survey to gauge how residents feel about violence and discrimination in San Luis Obispo, how they define it, and what they know about the services

available. Using the information gathered on the survey, the team is starting to conduct more in-depth interviews with some of the residents who filled out a survey to talk about their answers to the questions and brainstorm prevention measures that are specific to the community. Eventually, the goal is to come up with solutions developed by San Luis Obispo residents for San Luis Obispo residents. Stand Strong is doing similar survey work with a small cross section of leaders in the community to gauge how much people know about intimate partner violence in the community, and how willing they are to learn more about it, the services that are available and how it can be prevented. Sheridan Riolo, Stand Strong’s prevention coordinator, said SLO received a “readiness” score based on the interviews she’s already conducted. The city landed somewhere in the middle. “People are vaguely aware of the services available ... and the issue itself,” Riolo said. “A lot of people were vaguely uncomfortable taking the survey.” As people get more comfortable talking about the issue, the thought is that they will become more willing to see the issue for what it is and to discuss ways to prevent it.

Starts with a leader

Over the last five or six weeks, for 20 minutes before every practice, the SLO County Junior Roller Derby Team has engaged in discussions about things like bullying, gender roles, and what healthy relationships look like as part of Stand Strong’s Athletes as Leaders program.

Usually, such talks consist of watching a short YouTube video about whatever the topic is and then the skaters start talking, coach Marina Penna said. The group of kids ranges from 4 to 17 years of age, so not everyone can talk about everything together, but the skaters have also talked about ideas of beauty, stereotypes, and positions of power. Penna said most of the parents have been very supportive of it, and the ones who don’t want their skater involved just show up a little later to practice. As a sex educator and a domestic violence peer counselor with Stand Strong, Penna said when she first heard about the program she thought it would be fantastic to do with the skaters. Coaching, for her and SLOCO Junior Roller Derby, isn’t just about teaching kids how to skate and having a good time. It’s important to make them better people and give them the tools they need to go out and create the society they want to live in. “It really gives the students a chance to think critically and deeply about topics that are important in their lives and things they are experiencing, but they might not get education about it in school or another setting,” Penna said. “I’m really hoping that they take away some sense of empowerment and feeling that as an athlete and as a leader and as a young person in the world, they have the ability to speak up when they need to and when they feel it’s right. “And that sense of self that they can do that,” she continued, “and they can stand up for the right thing, even if they are the only one who’s standing up to say ‘this is wrong.’”

And that is exactly the point, said Riolo, who works with coaches through the Athletes as Leaders program and its compatriot the Coaching Boys into Men program. Athletes as Leaders is in its first season and is geared toward female athletes (although the roller derby team consists of a mix of gender identities, Penna said), and Coaching Boys into Men is entering its second season. Because athletes are seen as leaders in the social system at most schools, working with athletes could impact the culture at a school—and Riolo said the results so far are promising. The goal of the programs is to increase student athletes’ knowledge about consent, intimate partner violence, and healthy relationships; increase their intentions to intervene in a situation where discrimination or violence might be present; and a decrease in negative bystander behavior (which might encourage discrimination or violence). It’s a way of potentially preventing intimate partner violence before it starts. Stand Strong worked with more than 65 athletes in the spring—including those on the Mission Prep High School baseball and volleyball teams—and is collaborating with the Nipomo High School football team on the Coaching Boys into Men program this season. “We saw increases where we were supposed to see increases and decreases where we were supposed to see them,” Riolo said. “We’re hoping to kind of encapsulate as many people who we can who have change-making power.” Δ

Cancer connections Local cancer survivors band together to provide information and support via phone calls with community members experiencing cancer

C

ancer can be a lonely disease. It often leaves a person feeling overwhelmed with all the symptoms and side effects of treatment as well as the constant doctor visits. But support is only a phone call away with the efforts of Cancer Connections of San Luis Obispo. Established in 2005, the all-volunteer group takes calls from individuals experiencing cancer at any stage of their illness to provide words of encouragement, share their experiences, or offer recommendations to other organizations. Elaine Gardiner founded Cancer Connections after undergoing her own battle with ovarian cancer in 1997. “When I was first diagnosed I thought, ‘Gee, I’d like to talk to somebody who has had this.’ But of course I didn’t know a soul,” she said. Instead, Gardiner got support from a friend who had survived breast cancer. While it wasn’t the same type of cancer, she said having someone to talk to who understood what she was going through helped her feel better about how to approach her illness. So Gardiner went along the path of the disease. She took half a year off from teaching elementary school, had a hysterectomy and six rounds of chemotherapy, lost all of her hair and had

more surgery. When that journey was over, she said she was ready to give back to others who struggle with cancer. “A lot of us who have dealt with cancer have had, this is going to sound crazy, so many blessings. From the people we’ve met to the people that have helped us and do so much to care for us,” she said. The Cancer Connections group has grown from about five friends who are all cancer survivors to 50 members. It starts with a phone call that gets picked up by Gardiner, who has a home office and a private line for Cancer Connections. The calls are always confidential, and once the person on the other end explains their situation and the help they’re looking for, Gardiner connects them with one of her members. One of those next connections could be with Seema Benson. She’s a breast cancer survivor and has been with the group from the beginning. She said she believed the group was a good alternative to what little support services were available at the time. “I had gone to a support group, and I came back very disappointed because it was really more about people telling you what you should and shouldn’t do,” Benson said.

in and shipped from China. Its first boat came thanks to funding from a local oncology group; its second was donated by a team member who passed away and wrote the donation into her will (they named it after her—Joanna’s Joy); and the most recent boat came last year courtesy of a paddler’s local company. Having three boats allows the CCDBA to broaden its horizons as an organization. Now, each week, it offers a busy schedule of dragon boat trainings and activities designed for virtually

When connected with a member, she said, the caller can ask questions about what they’ve gone through or how certain medications have affected them. The group can’t help with legal or medical questions, but its members can point callers in the right direction. Benson said she personally feels that it’s a gift to be able to be there for others by sharing her experience and knowledge. “First of all it’s scary to call someone because you’re pretty much bearing your soul, and it’s just such a scary diagnosis. But by being able to call someone from the comfort of your home instead of going to a meeting might be the right option for some,” she said. Cancer Connections is also available for family members or friends who have someone in their life who has been diagnosed with cancer. People who know a friend or have a family member with cancer Benson said, often feel helpless or want to learn how they can help. The group is completely volunteer run, so it doesn’t fundraise for itself or raise funds for other organizations with similar goals. The members don’t need to raise money for the effort because almost all of the members are part of another organization that does just that, Gardiner said. Cancer Connections’ Bob Voglin, who was diagnosed with throat cancer 15 years ago, is one of those supporters. His wife saw an ad in the paper about the group, and he decided to join. Not only is Voglin connecting with other individuals who are experiencing anybody—man, woman, young, old, etc.—interested in the sport. Last year, it welcomed a college team into the mix, with Cal Poly and Cuesta students who paddle out together each weekend. “We’ve really tried to encourage other people who want to join us,” Riley said. “We’re trying to give opportunity for anyone else who would like to benefit and participate in the sport.” For Riley, the teams’ diversity is what’s become most fulfilling about the venture she helped start. “It’s just such a draw for me, personally, this wonderful group that has become such

The funds raised go toward the Cancer Resource Center, Cancer Support Community, Mission of Hope, and Arroyo Grande Hospital’s Cancer Center. The organization gives back in other ways, including partnering with the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel to teach children whose guardians or family members are dealing with the disease how to surf. “I feel like I’m one of the luckiest people in the world.

When you can feel empowered physically, that’s what it’s all about. That’s really what we need. That’s part of the healing.” Δ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

members in need in a simple but effective way. “You really are at a loss when you have no money and no time, and you want to do something for your community,” Croson said. The Clothing Swap makes it easy to do just that—for pretty much everyone but Croson, that is. To her, each swap means days and days of work, first organizing 20 to 30 volunteers, taking in and going through hundreds of bags of clothes before and during the event, and then deciding which clothes should go to which local charities the day after. There are typically so many leftover garments that not all of them can go to Stand Strong, Croson said, but that’s her top-priority recipient and was the first to partner up with the Clothing Swap. Croson landed on Stand Strong originally because she wanted the leftover clothes to go back to women locally. Most people know someone who’s been in some kind of abusive relationship, she said, whether physical or emotional, and a lot of times the victims of those situations grab what they can and leave without much else. Stand Strong doesn’t have the space to store clothes or the staff to go through them, however, so donations from the Clothing Swap go to United Voluntary Services (UVS) Thrift Store, which then gives Stand Strong clients vouchers to come into the store and get clothes free of charge. That CLOTHING SWAP continued page 25

SWAP, DONATE, OR BOTH!

The next Clothing Swap and Drive will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 12 at iFixit at 1330 Monterey St. For more information, visit asiacroson.com/events/clothing-swap-fall2018-6x9xl-xf459. Cal Poly is also hosting a drive to benefit local crisis shelters that will run until Oct. 26 at noon. Only new or unused items, gift cards, or cash donations will be accepted. Donations can be left in a collection box in the Women’s and Gender Studies Department office in building 47, room 25H.

sia Croson was a college student when she started swapping clothes with her friends and classmates instead of buying new ones. It was sometime around 2009. Croson was attending school at Cal Poly, and she was broke, busy, and didn’t really have the resources to shop every time it was necessary. But she noticed that some of her friends were interested in old things hanging in her closet that she didn’t want anymore, and vice versa. So, she thought, “Why don’t we trade?” It started small—just a few friends digging through each other’s unwanted garb in Croson’s apartment—but over the years, its popularity grew among other college students and eventually non-student residents. A few years later, Croson partnered with some Cal Poly sororities to help run the event, and soon more than 200 people were filtering in and out of her tiny downtown apartment four times a year. That’s when Croson decided the event needed to become “more of an operation,” and the Clothing Swap and Drive as we know it today was born. Now, nearly a decade after Croson first considered trading clothes, the Clothing Swap is an allday event hosted four days a year at iFixit and attracts roughly 600 participants. If you bring clothes you don’t want, you can take anything you want home. Whatever gets left behind—usually more than 100 bags of clothes—Croson and her team of volunteers analyze, organize, and donate to Stand Strong, an organization that works to support the survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence, partly by providing shelter space, advocacy, and financial help for those leaving domestic violence situations. “It’s such a win-win,” Croson told New Times. Swapping clothes instead of buying new ones helps the environment, Croson said, and people who attend have a chance to spruce up their closets, save money, and help other community

CLOTHING SWAP from page 24

indirect donation process was born out of both necessity and Stand Strong’s broader goal of empowering survivors of domestic violence, according to Executive Director Kirsten Rambo. “We’re not here to decide what you need for you,” Rambo said. “Because that’s been such a hallmark of the abuse they’ve been through.” Domestic violence is incredibly complex and often includes deep-seated manipulation, isolation, and multiple forms of abuse, according to Rambo. When one person in a relationship repeatedly and systematically uses abuse to gain and maintain power over another—and it happens over a long period of time—the victim is typically pretty deep in before he or she realizes how truly bad the situation is. Abusers often isolate their partners from family, friends, and co-workers. Financial abuse is common, Rambo said, and abusers can make it difficult for their partners to hold jobs by harassing them at work until they’re fired. It’s not uncommon for abusers to take out credit cards in their victims’ names and ruin their credit, Rambo said, force them to hand over any money they do have, or support them financially so they feel they don’t have the means to leave. People who come to Stand Strong looking for help typically don’t have much more than the clothes on their backs, Rambo said. They don’t have anyone to go to, they often don’t have much money, and they need help rebuilding credit, getting jobs, and securing housing. For these survivors, the opportunity to pick out clothing for themselves and their children at a thrift store can help them regain a sense of worth. Donations from events like the Clothing Swap are endlessly helpful to Stand Strong clients, Rambo said. Clothes, food, toiletries, baby wipes, and especially gift cards and gas cards, all make a huge difference in the lives of domestic violence survivors. “The folks we serve are trying to rebuild their lives after this trauma,” Rambo said. “[Donations] can make the difference between someone getting a job interview or not.” Δ Staff Writer Kasey Bubnash can be reached at kbubnash@newtimesslo.com.

The Morro Bay Harbor Festival goes big!

T

he Morro Bay Harbor Festival, this Friday, Oct. 4 through Sunday, Oct. 6, has really outdone itself this year on the entertainment! As usual, there’s all-day music and fun on Saturday and Sunday, but the weekend event begins with a Friday night Sunset Rhythm Kickoff Concert featuring Peter Case and Cracker (doors at 5:30 p.m.; 16-and-older; $30 at my805tix.com), at 895 Napa Ave., suite A3. Alcohol will be available for those 21 and older; and food’s available from The Greasy Weiner, Giovanni’s Fish Market, and Templeton Greek Food. Case, a New Yorker, traveled west and got his start in 1976 with The Nerves in San Francisco, where their song “Hanging on the Telephone” was covered by Blondie. The Nerves went on to tour the U.S. and open for the Ramones and Mink DeVille and play co-bills with The Nuns and Devo. After they broke up in 1978, Case formed The Plimsouls in 1979—best known for their 1982 megahit “A Million Miles Away,” which was included in Valley Girl (1983), starring Nicholas Cage and Deborah Foreman. His musical bona fides now well established, Case went on to a long solo career that’s generated some awesome radio hits such as “Old Blue Car,” “Put Down The Gun,” “Let Me Fall,” and others. He’s also known as a mesmerizing raconteur who weaves amazing stories in between his rock, blues, and folk tunes. He starts at 6:30 p.m. Cracker, which grew from the ranks of Camper Van Beethoven, formed in 1991 with lead singer David Lowery and guitarist Johnny Hickman. Their biggest success came early on with the release of the gold-selling Kerosene Hat, which included the singles “Low” and “Euro-

Trash Girl.” Their first single, “Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)” remains one of my favorite modern rock songs! They have an infectious rock/ punk/grunge/psychedelic/country/blues/ folk sound. They take the stage at 8 p.m. On Saturday, you can hear Jasper & Jade, Truth About Seafood, Zongo All-Stars, Burning James and the Funky Flames, Meet the Foppers, The Narrow Bridge Band, and Cadillac Angels, not to mention you can witness Giovanni’s Oyster Eating Contest (2:30 p.m.) and bring the tykes to Tim Costa’s Drums for Kids (1: 45 p.m.). On Sunday, check out Tim Jackson;, Dulcie Taylor; Back Pages Band; Chris Farmer, a Beach Boys and Eagles tribute act; the Cuesta Jazz Combo; Bear Market Riot; Kindel Silva; and Sovereign Vine, plus see the Hawaiian shirt contest (3 p.m.). Lots of fun, lots of food, and lots of stuff for the whole family! Park at Morro Rock and take the trolley to the Embarcadero!

The Fremont Theater hosts former The Monkees member Michael Nesmith and the First National Band on Saturday, Oct. 5 (doors at 7 p.m.; all ages; $42.56 to $66.02 at Boo Boo Records or fremontslo.com). Unlike his compatriots—Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, and Davy Jones—Nesmith came into what was essentially the first “boy band” already a skilled musician and songwriter, and from the start, he composed and produced some of the recordings for the TV series (1966-68). The Monkees disbanded in 1971, and by then, the other members had developed some musical skills, but Nesmith has remained the most talented of the group, composing “Different Drum,” a hit for Linda Ronstadt with the Stone Poneys, as well as the top-40 hit “Joanne,” with his own group the First National Band. Also at the Fremont this week, see James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash on Sunday, Oct. 6 (doors at 6 p.m., show at 7; $27.31 to $50.77 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com). “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line”— you’ll hear the early hits! Electronica artist Manila Killa appears at the Fremont next Thursday, Oct. 10 (doors at 8 p.m.; all ages; $27.31 general or $85.96 VIP meet-and-greet),

Indie rockers Crumb play a Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents show at the Madonna Expo Center this Sunday, Oct. 6 (doors at 6 p.m.; all ages; $18 presale at eventbrite.com or $20 at the door). Check out their inventive and super weird video for “Locket” online! You’ll feel like you’re on LSD! Crumb is a collaboration between Brooklyn-based musicians Lila Ramani (guitar, vocals), Brian Aronow (synth, keys, sax), Jesse Brotter (bass), and Jonathan Gilad (drums), who formed in 2016 to develop Ramani’s songs that she wrote in high school and college. After two EPs, they just released Jinx, their first full-length—a dizzying blend of psych-rock and jazz. Very cool! Divino Nino and Shormey open the show. You can still get tickets for the Numbskull and Good Medicine show featuring Dead Kennedys at the Madonna Inn Expo Center this Thursday, Oct. 3 (5:30 p.m.; all ages; $26 presale at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com or $30 at the door), with The Living End, Good Riddance, and 88 Fingers Louie opening. Singer-songwriter and guitar wizard Billy Strings plays BarrelHouse Brewing on Thursday, Oct. 3 (6 p.m.; all ages; $20 presale at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com), touring in support of his new album, Home. The International Bluegrass Music Association just named Strings New Artist of the Year. You’ve never seen high velocity flatpicking like this before! A lot of his dates have been selling out, but last I checked, tickets were still available. Dead Man’s Party, a tribute to Oingo Boingo, plays The Siren on Friday, Oct. 4 (doors at 7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $20 presale at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com or $25 at the door). This octet re-creates the manic energy, theatrics, and crazy rhythms of Danny Elfman’s group.

Rockin’ R at SLO Brew Rock If you like great music and great wine—I know, who doesn’t, right?—the place to be this Saturday, Oct. 5, is the SLO Brew Rock Event Center, where Rockin’ R Winery will celebrate its 10th anniversary (7 p.m.; 18-and-older; $10 presale at slobrew.com or $15 at the door). Started by singer-songwriter and entrepreneur Dean DiSandro, who started making wine in his garage in 2001 while still running an Orange County software development company, he bought eastside Paso Robles property in 2006, officially opening his tiny tasting room in 2009. Rockin’ R doesn’t distribute their wines, which are sold exclusively through the R-Fan Club and at their tasting room Union Road Wine Trail just east of downtown Robles. They’re “100 percent varietals and proprietary blends without adherence to snobby rules of convention, thus their motto, ‘F-the Rulz, R-Wines Rock!’” according to DiSandro, whose wines are named musiccentric titles such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Ax’L Rosé, Nirvana, King Crimson, and Jailhouse Rock. The party features opening act psychedelic pop group Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers followed by the gritty blues rock of headliners Crooked Eye Tommy, who is also releasing a new album at the show. Also this week at SLO Brew rock, check out Texas singer-songwriter Hayes Carll on Friday, Oct. 4 (9 p.m.; 18-andolder; $22 at slobrew.com). Niger-based musician Mdou Moctar appears on Monday, Oct. 7 (8 p.m.; 18-and-older; $16 at slobrew.com). If you want to witness some contemporary Saharan music, here’s your chance. Special guests Matt Nice and The Derls open the show. STARKEY continued page 40

IMAGE COURTESY OF JULIE HEFFERNAN

As the Waters Rise exhibit at Cuesta College encourages viewers to change how they treat our planet

P

ainter Julie Heffernan told New Times that her work is often compared to that of Hieronymus Bosch. For those who haven’t dabbled in art history, Bosch was one of the most notable painters among the Early Netherlandish Renaissance. Chances are high that you’ve seen The Garden of Earthly Delights in a history book. Despite the notoriety of the artist she is likened to, Heffernan says she doesn’t quite agree with the comparison. Even so, to have one’s work so often compared to that of a 15th century artistic genius at least shows that Heffernan’s work is wholly unique among her contemporaries. Painted on canvases that could fill a wall—whose exhibition As the Waters Rise is on display at the Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery until Oct. 11—Heffernan’s pieces feel at once antiquated and of the now. At a quick glance, the grand and intricate scenes she renders look like whimsical wonderlands that might have paired well with a centuries-old fairy tale. But with a closer look at the details, the viewer can begin to see the subtle but persistent nuances that hide in the literal nooks and crannies that Heffernan paints. “I am firmly devoted to imagery that seems familiar, so that anybody from any different walk of life can recognize something in my work that relates to their own life,” the Brooklyn-based artist said. “But then when they look closer, they’ll see that everything’s been kind of shuffled to take you to a different way

of reading that familiarity: so, defamiliarizing the familiar.” Her 66-by-68-inch piece titled Self Portrait with Red Tent—part of the current display at Miossi Gallery—looks like an idyllic children’s book scene at first: an unnaturally aquamarine-colored body of water; knobby trees with delicately hanging branches; a staircase carved into a hillside, leading somewhere beyond the canvas’ edge. But with a closer look, the image that first feels so familiar begins to reveal its unexpected, even unsettling details: a skinny metal pipe dumping green sewage into the water; orange traffic cones dispersed throughout the landscape; a man who appears to be drowning beneath a majestic tent structure covered by a red curtain. Right as the viewer starts to feel comfortable, we are jolted into awareness of a notquite-right reality. For Heffernan, that disturbing reality is climate change, or as she opts to call it, “the climate catastrophe.” “It’s no longer just something as anodyne, harmless as climate ‘change,’” she said. “This is serious stuff.” Before making its way to San Luis Obispo, the collection was slated to go to states that have experienced major flooding

catastrophes, particularly those states that tend to go red during election season. Right before the collection opened at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, a superstorm and massive flooding forced residents to “drag all their worldly goods out to the sidewalk,” Heffernan said, making her exhibition painfully timely. “Several of the paintings are depicting how we are going to manage when the waters rise,” she said. “We can’t just throw a lot of money at the problem. ... We have to rethink everything.” Though Heffernan has had a long and illustrious career since receiving her MFA from Yale University in 1985, it is only in recent years that her work became decidedly political. “It was basically after Hurricane Sandy that I decided to change my work and focus on the climate situation,” she said. “That was the first show that was entirely devoted to looking at the climate catastrophe and addressing it head-on.” Other recent exhibitions, Heffernan said, have sought to empower women, especially in light of the #MeToo movement. But Heffernan emphasized that she wants her more politically driven work to do more than inspire unproductive outrage. “It became really important not

to just make work about oil spills or heaping scorn on ExxonMobil,” she said. Rather, she hopes her work will create a lasting momentum and inspire viewers to think long term “about how they’re going to situate themselves differently, how they’re going to get along in different habitats, how they’re going to basically change their lives ... to divest their own living circumstances from these harmful components of our contemporary life.” Though Heffernan often finds her initial inspiration from issues like climate change or women’s rights, she says her actual painting process comes down to “letting the painting tell me what to do.” “It’s as though the painting kind of pre-exists, and it just needs you to bring it into real existence,” she said. “You make a billion choices, but only one of them is the right one—and what does it mean to be right under such circumstances? I’ve spent a life testing that, and if I follow what it dictates, almost invariably an interesting world that fascinates me and surprises me will show up.” ∆ Arts Writer Malea Martin is fighting climate change.

Best in the West Central Coast Writers Conference celebrated its 35th year of bringing writers from across the globe together in SLO

V

oted the best writers conference in California this year by The Writer magazine, the Central Coast Writers Conference (CCWC) celebrated its 35th year in San Luis Obispo from Sept. 26 to 28. “It was started by a Cuesta professor called Lillian Dean,” Conference Director Teri Bayus told New Times about the annual event held at Cuesta College. “Writers are solitary people, and [Dean] felt that they needed to come together.” More than three decades later, the CCWC has grown from one day of classes to a full-fledged, three-day conference that features keynote addresses, question-and-answer sessions, workshops, panels, master classes, and networking opportunities. Over her five-year tenure as conference director, Bayus has implemented changes that work to keep CCWC in the contemporary, which no doubt contributed to its 2019 win as the best California writers conference. “I hired almost the entire staff off of Twitter,” Bayus said. Her social media savvy brought in some of the most notable individuals in the industry. Bayus also emphasized her global outreach to bring the best to the West. “When I took over, I very much did an outreach to everywhere,” she said. A few of the conference’s most notable people included Monica Piper, a stand-up comedian and the creative mind behind Rugrats, who taught a workshop and gave a hilarious, stand-up style closing keynote; Ricky Roxburgh, a Disney staff writer, who led a “How to Write a 10 Minute Movie” workshop aimed at teens; and Linda Aronson, whose “New Structures

for New Audiences” class typically fills up in minutes when it’s offered at acclaimed international writers conferences. While many writers and teachers came from outside the Central Coast—some as far as Australia—to enjoy the three days of collaborative learning, local talent was nowhere near forgotten. Laure-Anne Bosselaar, Santa Barbara’s poet laureate and winner of a prestigious Pushcart Prize for poetry, led poetry workshops and spoke on panel sessions. “The faculty and the students mix with such democratic enthusiasm,” Bosselaar told New Times after leading a compelling workshop that taught students how to engage an audience while reading their own work. “Classes are full of hungry, curious, avid listeners,” she continued. “You feel that you are here to exchange talent [with students] instead of teach.” Bosselaar added that Bayus instilled a particular spirit in her role as conference director, something she hasn’t encountered at other writing conferences. “I’ve been to many conferences where there is a hierarchy, even among the faculty,” Bosselaar said. “This is not the case in this conference.” For Bayus, it all comes back to accessibility. “I wanted to make it so that every single person who wanted to come could come, that there was no barrier of entry

to anybody,” Bayus said of her approach. By securing grants and sponsorships, Bayus sought to assist those who could not afford the full price of the conference. “The only barrier to entry they would have is their own fear, and we were trying very hard to get rid of that, too,” she said. In addition to the 112 classes that the weekend offered, the conference also provided a valuable opportunity to attendees to collaborate outside the classroom that can prove just as transformative. “The reason that writing conferences work, but specifically this one, [is] it’s more about hanging out with other writers, talking about where you’re stuck and what you’re doing. Nobody else but writers sit around and play with imaginary friends all day long,” Bayus said with a laugh. “We try to build a network and a community.” New additions to the conference this year included a pitching session with writing industry leaders for students, and preconference webinars for the teachers. The conference also introduced audio recordings of all 112 classes. The MP3 files will be made available for a small fee online. ∆ Arts Writer Malea Martin is feeling motivated to write.

Split Screen PHOTOS COURTESY OF EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT

Cool but flawed

S

tanley Nelson (Freedom Riders) directs this documentary about horn player, band leader, and jazz icon Miles Davis, told through archival photos, home movies shot by Davis and his contemporaries, his manuscripts and paintings, and interviews with experts and those who knew him. (115 min.) Glen “Complicated” is perhaps the best adjective to describe Miles Davis. He faced racism, addiction, and his own relentless anger, but he still created some of the most beautiful music of the ’50s and ’60s. In his late career and foray into electric music, his experimentation laid the groundwork for the house, hiphop, and electronica styles. This elegiac cradle-to-grave biopic is informative, entertaining, and often sublime. It’s not afraid to show Davis’ dark side—his heroin and cocaine use, his occasional mistreatment of women, and the chip he carried on his shoulder. Actor Carl Lumbly supplies Davis’ raspy voice, reading from his personal manuscripts. It creates a very revealing and personal examination of Davis, and it’s bolstered by interviews with jazz luminaries such as Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, and Wayne Shorter. We also hear

from some of Davis’ wives and lovers such as Juliette Gréco and Frances Taylor. Through it all is the music. I’ve always been a big fan of his earlier work, but watching this documentary gave me insight into Davis’ constant drive to move forward, to push the music further, and to work with other really talented musicians and give them the space they need to create. It’s pretty incredible that director Nelson managed to compress five decades of creativity into two hours. Anna Lumbly did a fantastic job as the voice of Davis, and the archival footage along with interviews of everyone from musicians to childhood friends to lovers made for a dynamic trip through the troubled yet immensely talented life of the jazz legend. I didn’t know a whole lot of his work toward the end of his life; similarly, I have always been partial to his earlier recordings like Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain. What was clear is that Davis suffocated in stagnation—

HAPPY TIMES Davis and his wife, the dancer Frances Taylor, enjoy the good times … until he lost her due to his temper and jealousy.

he was always interested in the next project, not the ones before. His son Erin reveals that his father never kept any of his old albums around the house. He had no interest in what had already been done. He was a man with many faults, but also a magnetism and unending wealth of talent. Women swooned for him, musicians wanted to be him—he was the definition of cool. Being raised in a wealthy family didn’t shield Davis from the racism in St. Louis where he was raised, another chip on his shoulder he would carry through his life and that would lead to problems with police later on. This film really did span his life, a whole look at a life both blessed and tortured—and that soundtrack isn’t bad either. Glen You mention Davis’ run-in with the police. That was clearly an especially vexing situation for him. He was smoking a cigarette outside a music club, his name on the marquee behind him, when a white police officer told him to move along. As Davis was explaining that he was performing inside, another white officer hit him over the head. He was taken to the police station. The photos from this episode are amazing! The look on Davis’ face—bewilderment mixed with rage—are unforgettable. No wonder he had so much animosity toward American society. We also discover that his first trip to Paris was life changing. American institutional racism was nowhere to be found there, and he was treated with respect and celebrated for his talent.

ABOMINABLE What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Rent it Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Jill Culton and Todd Wilderman have had their hands in animated/fantasy films such as Monsters Inc. and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, respectively, in the writers’ room or the visual department. The two have now come together for the first time as a director-duo to create DreamWorks’ Abominable where Chloe Bennet is the voice of Yi, a young girl who goes on an epic adventure across China to take a yeti back to its home on Mount Everest.

I’ve heard that DreamWorks has been called Pixar’s redheaded stepsister because its films just don’t quite reach the magnitude of Toy Story, Coco, Cars, or Up —you get the idea. I will admit they have had some fan favorites such as Shrek, the Wallace and Gromit franchise, Madagascar, or The Road to El Dorado, but similar to many of the animation movies that come out of DreamWorks, Abominable just falls a little flat. The film opens up when a playful and very furry yeti breaks out of a laboratory and into a busy city in China. These first few scenes are done from a first-person perspective, so it feels like the audience is breaking out of confinement and running into oncoming traffic—the first and last time the filmmakers use this visual storytelling effect. The creature takes refuge on an apartment

rooftop where he can see a brightly lit billboard with a Mount Everest photo. The rooftop is also a refuge for Yi, a young teenager who avoids her family and works odd jobs to save up for a trip across China that her late father had planned for them. The yeti and Yi meet, and after an initial startle, Yi decides she’s going to help the creature escape from a doctor and a villainous animal collector from the lab— and return him to his home. Yi’s childhood friends Peng (Albert Tsai) and Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) join the escapees on their journey. Of course the adventure has it ups and downs, separations, and glimmer of magic. It turns out that the yeti they decided to name Everest can magically communicate with nature, causing a dandelion to grow 10 times its normal size, getting the group out of the villain’s grasp.

Davis’ life could have ended early on several occasions. His drug use was prodigious. However, he also managed to bounce back, to reinvent himself, and to make new music. He had a terrible temper. He was incredibly cool and poised. His talent was undeniable. He punched his wife in the face. He was an inventive painter. He seemed like a poor excuse for a father. He was a genius. Complicated. Very complicated. Anna He definitely could be a difficult person to be around, and he came near death many times because of his addictions, yet you still hear love and devotion from those closest to him as they share intimate stories, both triumphant and tragic. He was complicated but loved by those around him. Director Nelson was able to pull together a well-rounded group of those who surrounded Davis. Wives, girlfriends, musicians, and children, neighborhood pals—they all speak to the genius and the terrible temper behind the trumpet. Because it spanned such a wide amount of time, the film felt a little long for me personally, but I’m glad the filmmakers chose to cover his lifetime as a whole, not just the good (or bad) years. Anyone with an appreciation for both jazz and Davis’ contributions to the genre are sure to eat up the rich story presented on the screen. You hit the nail on the head— he’s one complicated character. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

REVIEW SCORING FULL PRICE .... It’s worth the price of an evening showing MATINEE ........ Save a few bucks, catch an afternoon showing RENT IT .......... It’s worth a rental STREAM IT ..... Wait ’til Netflix has it NOTHING ........ Don’t waste your time What this animated film has going for it is the scenery that the creative team has designed from the spectacular fields of blooming flowers to the snowy mountaintops of Everest. But the story has been done more times than I can count. You know, greedy adults who want to exploit natural habitats for their own benefit and innocent young children who want to preserve them. Not to mention the coming-of-age plot after losing a parent. There are plenty of animated films that have used these plot lines successfully; Abominable didn’t really do it justice. The script wasn’t groundbreaking either, as a lot of the jokes were oneliners that didn’t even make the kids in my audience erupt in laughter. (97 min.) —Karen Garcia MOVIES continued page 48

I couldn’t help but see the obvious parallels between this story and Apocalypse Now (1979), or if you’d like to go back further, Joseph Conrad’s 1899 novella Heart of Darkness. Pitt’s Roy McBride is the Capt. Willard/Charles Marlow character sent on a dangerous mission to stop a rogue agent, and Tommy Lee Jones’ Clifford McBride is Col./Mr. Kurtz, the former heroic and loyal part of the team who’s apparently gone mad. Pitt’s narration further recalls Martin Sheen’s narration as Willard in Apocalypse Now and his thoughtful analysis of Kurtz and what caused him to drift into insanity. As for Jones’ Clifford, his obsession is with finding intelligent life outside the solar system. From Neptune, the outermost planet in our solar system, he should be able to send and receive unobstructed signals from deep space. Surely intelligent life is out there. The film explores humanity’s place in the universe and our penchant for selfdestruction. The colonized moon is both a fought over mining resource and a tourist destination preyed on by pirates.

alapeño-flavored kettle-cooked potato chips are my all-time favorite snack food. But I don’t buy them often because whenever I do, I lose all sense of self-control and eat an entire bag in one sitting. So, for the sake of my heart and my waistline, I buy pretzels to satiate my salty snack craving. They’re always reliably satisfying, but rarely fantastic, so portion control is never an issue. Yet, when I need something to munch on, there’s always a bag in my pantry. To me, the anthology horror series Into the Dark is the pretzel of television. Each episode—all of which function as short movies with 90-minute run times and different casts—is consistently entertaining, but never phenomenal.

fearless and impossible-to-rattle explorer who’s so closed off to his own emotions that he’s doomed his marriage to Eve (Liv Tyler). Essentially, Ad Astra is an existentialist quandary. Are we alone in the universe? Can we really make a true connection with anyone or anything? If these questions interest you and if you can settle in to this mesmerizing but often slow and contemplative film, you just might love it. On the other hand, if you’re expecting Star Wars or Star Trek, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Ad Astra is a meditation on loneliness. (124 min.) —Glen Starkey Nonetheless, I’m eager to watch each new episode that’s released. The first episode of the series, titled The Body, was released on Oct. 5, 2018. Since then, one episode has been put out each month based on a theme related to a holiday in that month. This includes many of the more widely celebrated holidays, such as Halloween and Thanksgiving, but also more greeting-card focused occasions, like Father’s and Mother’s days. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television produces the series, which wrapped up its first season on Hulu with episode 12, titled Pure in September. The second season kicks off on Oct. 4, with another Halloween-themed episode. The first season’s Halloween episode, which was about a hitman crashing a Halloween party, was mediocre at best. It was neither funny enough to be comedic nor scary enough to be horrific, but thankfully the series got better. Aside from the first episode, most installments are pretty entertaining, with a few exceeding that level. So far, my favorite is Pooka!, which was released in December, and tells the story of an unemployed actor who slowly descends into madness after taking a job wearing

This format also allows for mistakes and second chances. If one episode falls short, there’s always hope that the next month’s could be better (two seasons, 90 min. episodes). Δ —Zac Ezzone

Arts SAN LUIS OBISPO

MOVIES from page 48 Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Writer-director Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, The Meddler) helms this crime dramedy based on New York magazine reporter Jessica Pressler’s articles about a group of strip club performers led by Ramona (Jennifer Lopez), who through craftiness exploit their Wall Street clients and extract their riches. Initially working at a strip club just to make ends meet, Dorothy (Constance Wu)—or Destiny, as her clients call her—starts to embrace the profession as a long-term career after meeting Ramona (Lopez), the club’s top money earner. After a friendly encounter, Ramona quickly takes Destiny under her wing, instructing her on the ins and outs of attracting wealthy, eager-to-spend-a-shit-ton customers. The opening to this section of the film reminded me of the clique listing scene in Mean Girls, as Ramona labels the different types of men Destiny should aim for—insecure guys who can be strung along for months, regulars that visit the club frequently, and the head honchos (CEOs and bankers ready to spend thousands during the course of one night). With Ramona’s help, Destiny has a Goodfellasesque rise to the top of the club alongside her, joined by some of their stripper peers, including Diamond (Cardi B) and Liz (Lizzo). If I could even muster a single complaint, it would be that those two don’t get enough screen time. Other than that small nitpick, I was consistently engrossed by Hustlers all the way up to its conclusion— which echoes Goodfellas again with an inevitable fall from grace for its characters, once drugs and theft enter the picture. Hustlers is definitely a film to take seriously, but it’s also simultaneously one of the funniest films of the year. The humor comes from genuine interactions and character quirks rather than forced one-liners. One stripper, Annabelle (Lili Reinhart) involuntarily vomits when under stress—which you can probably predict is quite often. I don’t recall ever finding throwup particularly funny, but Hustlers earned the church a convert—consider me a born-again barf fan. But in all seriousness, the real stars of the film are Wu and Lopez, who deliver equally top-notch performances as two friends during a dangerously deteriorating relationship. (110 min.) —Caleb

New Times’ staff sips and saunters around downtown SLO on Sept. 27

hen asked what it’s like to work for a local media outlet, I always say it’s a great way to get to know an area. New Times, if you didn’t already know, is located on the bottom floor of a building in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. I won’t speak for my colleagues, but I do love setting up an interview outside of the basement—I mean office—to just get out and soak up some vitamin D. Through these reporting outings, I’ve gotten to know a lot of different people and plenty of places I wouldn’t have otherwise become acquainted with. Although our stories take us to different corners of SLO County, there are also the shops and people we haven’t met right near our office. I’m not talking about the local restaurants we frequent for lunch—shout out to Woodstock’s Pizza, San Luis Taqueria, Thai Classic, Firestone, and Sidewalk Market! Thank you for being our goto when we need a quick and delicious bite to eat. Yet it’s safe to say we haven’t seen all that our downtown has to offer. Luckily, the New Times editorial crew was invited to the third annual Sip n’ Saunter event on Sept. 27 put together by the Downtown SLO Association, which takes place literally all over our city’s downtown area. This year, 40 different stores, restaurants, bars, and salons participated in the event. On this Friday night, there’s a drink and/or food vendor ready to give us a taste at each location. The event begins at the association’s office, where we gear up with a wristband, wine cup, and map of participating locations. We look at the map to see if there are any shops that are beckoning our taste buds. There are a few places we mark off as a must, but for most of the night we just walk down the street and look for a green lantern, which signifies they are ready for us to Sip n’ Saunter. Making the trip to every single vendor doesn’t happen, but we definitely make a dent in the list. We go into a lot of stores I usually walk by or window-shop at. We explore The Ritual, a men’s clothing and barber shop, which recently moved to its new location on Higuera Street—just a few doors down from its original spot. I might not benefit from their barber services, but I do see a lot of clothing items, pocket knives, and other accessories that I can give as gifts in the future. Their vendor pairing is Tin City Cider’s Polly Dolly (a cider and rosé blend) or Hard Cider with Hops with a spoonful of mac and cheese from Giuseppe’s Cucina Rustica. There are also a lot of wine favorites that are served and new wineries I haven’t tried before. Habitat Home and Garden is one stop that has some beautiful, oneof-a-kind furniture pieces that we learn are pre-treated, so if a little wine gets spilled on a couch, it’s easy to clean out. Thankfully, we take a lot of care to not spill any of the wine we’re served from Fillipponi Ranch and Ancient Peaks Winery, or drop any of the arancini and crocchette provided by the Flour House. Arancini and crocchette are Sicilian fried rice balls, stuffed with ’nduja and provola, saffron, tomato and Parmigiano salsina. On the outside is a potato croquette with prosciutto cotto, provola, Parmigiano fondue, and calabrian chili aioli. So that’s a mouthful of ingredients, but it’s also a mouthful of deliciousness—which definitely makes me want to visit the Flour House and see what other offerings it has on its menu. Overall, the Sip n’ Saunter is a fun way to get to know our local businesses, taste some great food, and have plenty of wine—or beer— in between. I appreciate how the vendors, both new and already established, tell us more about their business or product. It’s also nice to spend time together as an editorial team outside of the newsroom, getting our necessary dose of outdoor weather, food, and drinks. We talk about work, the food, and run into a lot of people we’ve interviewed for stories in the past. It’s amazing to see how many people turned out for the event. Everywhere I look, there are people with blue wristbands and maps finding their next stop. We sipped, we sauntered, we conquered downtown.

Foodies far and wide are being treated to boundary-pushing hybrids on their plates, and now two Central Coast beverage makers are bringing a fanciful blend in the form of a six-pack. Firestone Walker brewmasters teamed up with Niels Udsen, owner of Castoro Cellars, to create Rosalie. She comes in slim pink cans, with her name in pretty pink cursive above a beautiful, longhaired woman holding up grapes, with the bricks of the historic Paso Robles Inn surrounding her. She’s at once a beer and a wine. And she solves the age-old restaurant dilemma: Shall I order an IPA or a glass of rosé? Dear, you can have both, in a stemless wineglass no less. Swirl and sniff the aromatics in the glass before you sip, and keep an open mind. For my first try of the Rosalie, Firestone Walker Quality Control Manager Amy Crook had me lick some hibiscus flowers in a little cup to see if I could recognize them in the body of the beer-wine. The enigma drink proved lovely, like a light pilsner dating a rosé. As someone who likes light, fragrant wines like rosés and viognier and also adores beer, I realized I’m among the

It was a smashing success: Everyone seemed to be pleasantly surprised at how bright and fresh Rosalie tasted. Some were astounded that a beer could be so elegant, and others were amazed that a sophisticated wine could get along with a tough ol’ beer.

The acidity is bright, and the color is beautiful.” According to Udsen, rosé is really in right now. And in the beer world, there’s the hazy thing going on, and IPA’s popularity has skyrocketed. Udsen is hopeful this beer-wine hybrid trend sticks. Kral recently introduced the Rosalie at the Mammoth Bluesapalooza. “It was overlooked by a lot of our clientele,” he said, describing how sometimes Firestone staff would have to twist people’s arms to try something new. “Our customers wanted their IPAs and their standard beer, but once I started telling people exactly what it is—because what this beer needs is the story—not only were they drinking it the ROOTED IN WINE It makes sense that Firestone rest of the day, they were going Walker Brewery got back to its roots in wine.

alcohol and is made with no extracts, fruit-flavoring, or shortcuts. Plus, it’s low in calories. “I think Firestone, in general, always veered away from making products that we don’t want to drink ourselves, just because we think there’s a mass appeal to them,” said Firestone Walker’s Production Director Ari Razi, who has worked 16 years for the brewery. “I think that with this rosé style, there are so many overly sweet products out there that are artificial, where this beer was designed for a more sophisticated palate.” Rosalie is part of Firestone’s circle of life—their first beers were fermented in wine barrels, and ever since, they’ve used oak barrels in their brewing operations. Firestone brewery started small, on the Firestone family vineyard in Los Olivos, and moved to the old SLO Brewing Company building in Paso Robles in 2001. Now it’s the fourth largest craft brewery in California and employs hundreds of SLO County residents. Firestone has a brewery in Venice, California, called The Propagator that serves as an extension of its two other brewing operations in Paso and Buellton. It’s a state-of-the-art beer research and development think tank, where Rosalie was conceptualized. Firestone is also the founder of the Terroir Project, a collaborative experiment into beer-wine hybrids. Once Rosalie was made, Firestone had to purchase new equipment and tackle the challenges of integrating sugary grapes into the pipes and tanks, making the new brew shelf-stable, and preserving the qualities of a well-made beverage. Several test batches were made. Udsen and Firestone Brewmaster Matt Brynildson tasted the samples along the way, and Udsen said they both

The rosé lover’s beer

Look for Firestone Walker Brewing Company’s six-pack slim can Rosalie—a hybrid half-beer, half-wine with an acid profile similar to a rosé—in the beer and wine section of local grocery stores.

learned quite a bit over the experimental span of a year. The wine grape juice was pressed and delivered for cold storage at their brewery in Paso, and the process of brewing a base beer began. “It was definitely a new challenge,” said Crook, who tastes Rosalie every week to monitor the tank. “It opened up a whole new realm of raw ingredient microbiology to watch … but we learned how to control it, and we haven’t had any issues.” In September 2018, Firestone’s friends and neighbors at Castoro harvested 100 tons of chardonnay grapes specifically reserved for Rosalie, later followed by another 100 tons of viognier, sauvignon blanc, riesling, and muscat. Brynildson wanted the “crowd-pleasing textures and flavors” of the chardonnay but also wanted the lift of the other aromatic grape varieties. Udsen said he met Brynildson through Castoro’s yearly Whale Rock Music & Arts Festival. Brynildson is a big fan of music, and it was at the festival when Brynildson told Udsen he wanted to make a beer with him. “I thought he was just BS’n’ me,” Udsen recalled. But Brynildson persisted. Udsen said he could supply enough grape juice for the project, and Brynildson was happy his supplier would be local. FLAVOR continued page 54

D INE ’N’ DISH Prosecco and popcorn My husband (bless his heart) recently went along with me to see Downton Abbey at the Galaxy Atascadero movie theater, and lo and behold, next to the concessions on a pretty little side table, the theater was advertising bubbly to go with our movie. At the Galaxy, you can order wine by the glass or bottle and drink it with your popcorn and Junior Mints while you watch your favorite movies. The Galaxy Theatre also holds wine tastings every other Wednesday, and this month has been all about J. Dusi wines. But for Downton Abbey (which has so much wine drinking, it could almost be fit into the wine-themed genre of movies), the management at the Galaxy pulled out the white linen for an Italian prosecco special. While Downton is playing, the prosecco special will be available: $12 for a double pour of La Marca prosecco (12 ounces means: “Never complain, never explain”) in a nice, stemless wine glass. The light and floral sparkling wine with sinful buttered popcorn, and in the extra-spacious VIP red leather movie chairs—this is the pairing that you may not even think you would need but probably deserve. The Galaxy Atascadero is located at 6917 El Camino Real, Atascadero. The $12 for a 12 ounce pour of prosecco special will run as long as Downton Abbey is in the theater. ∆ Flavor writer Beth Giuffre is ready for a matinee. Send extra Junior Mints to bgiuffre@newtimesslo.com.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: “Privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it’s not a problem for you.” Comment. Freewillastrology.com ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): In 1956, the U.S. federal government launched a program to build 40,000 miles of high-speed roads to connect all major American cities. It was completed 36 years later at a cost of $521 billion. In the coming months, I’d love to see you draw inspiration from that visionary scheme. According to my analysis, you will generate good fortune for yourself as you initiate a long-term plan to expand your world, create a more robust network, and enhance your ability to fulfill your life’s big goals.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Every time my birthday season comes around, I set aside an entire day to engage in a life review. It lasts for many hours. I begin by visualizing the recent events I’ve experienced, then luxuriously scroll in reverse through my entire past, as if watching a movie starring me. It’s not possible to remember every single scene and feeling, of course, so I allow my deep self to highlight the moments it regards as significant. Here’s another fun aspect of this ritual: I bestow a blessing on every memory that comes up, honoring it for what it taught me and how it helped me to become the person I am today. Dear Libra, now is an excellent time for you to experiment with a similar celebration.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taurus-born YouTube vlogger Hey Fran Hey has some good advice for her fellow Bulls, and I think it’ll be especially fresh and potent in the coming weeks. She says, “Replacing ‘Why is this happening to me?’ with ‘What is this trying to tell me?’ has been a game changer for me. The former creates a hamster wheel, where you’ll replay the story over and over again. Victimized. Stuck. The latter holds space for a resolution to appear.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “The soul has illusions as the bird has wings: It is supported by them.” So declared French author Victor Hugo. I don’t share his view. In fact, I regard it as an insulting misapprehension. The truth is that the soul achieves flight through vivid fantasies and effervescent intuitions and uninhibited longings and non-rational hypotheses and wild hopes—and maybe also by a few illusions. I bring this to your attention because now is an excellent time to nurture your soul with vivid fantasies and effervescent intuitions and uninhibited longings and nonrational hypotheses and wild hopes.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I know people of all genders who periodically unleash macho brags about how little sleep they need. If you’re normally like that, I urge you to rebel. The dilemmas and riddles you face right now are very solvable IF and only IF you get sufficient amounts of sleep and dreams. Do you need some nudges to do right by yourself? Neuroscientist Matthew Walker says that some of the greatest athletes understand that “sleep is the greatest legal enhancing performance drug.” Top tennis player Roger Federer sleeps 12 hours a day. During his heyday, world-class sprinter Usain Bolt slept ten hours a night and napped during the day. Champion basketball player LeBron James devotes 12 hours a day to the rejuvenating sanctuary of sleep.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Actor and dancer Fred Astaire was a pioneer in bringing dance into films as a serious art form. He made 31 musical films during the 76 years he worked and was celebrated for his charisma, impeccable technique, and innovative moves. At the height of his career, from 1933 to 1949, he teamed up with dancer Ginger Rogers in the creation of 10 popular movies. In those old-fashioned days, virtually all partner dancing featured a male doing the lead part as the female followed. One witty critic noted that although Astaire was a bigger star than Rogers, she “did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and while wearing high heels.” According to my reading of the astrological omens, you may soon be called on to carry out tasks that are metaphorically comparable to those performed by Rogers.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your number one therapy in the coming weeks? Watching animals. It would be the healthiest thing you could undertake: Relax into a generously receptive mode as you simply observe creatures doing what they do. The best option would be to surrender to the pleasures of communing with both domesticated AND wild critters. If you need a logical reason to engage in this curative and rejuvenating activity, I’ll give you one: It will soothe and strengthen your own animal intelligence, which would be a tonic gift for you to give yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Depression is when you think there’s nothing to be done,” writes author Siri Hustvedt. “Fortunately I always think there’s something to be done.” I offer this hopeful attitude to you, Scorpio, trusting that it will cheer you up. I suspect that the riddles and mysteries you’re embedded in right now are so puzzling and complicated that you’re tempted to think that there’s nothing you can do to solve them or escape them. But I’m here to inform you that if that’s how you feel, it’s only temporary. Even more importantly, I’m here to inform you that there is indeed something you can do, and you are going to find out what that is sooner rather than later.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “How inconvenient to be made of desire,” writes Sagittarian author Larissa Pham. “Even now, want rises up in me like a hot oil. I want so much that it scares me.” I understand what she means, and I’m sure you do, too. There are indeed times when the inner fire that fuels you feels excessive and unwieldy and inopportune. But I’m happy to report that your mood in the coming weeks is unlikely to fit that description. I’m guessing that the radiant pulse of your yearning will excite you and empower you. It’ll be brilliant and warm, not seething and distracting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I envision the next 12 months as a time when you could initiate fundamental improvements in the way you live. Your daily rhythm 12 months from now could be as much as 20 percent more gratifying and meaningful. It’s conceivable you will discover or generate innovations that permanently raise your long-term goals to a higher octave. At the risk of sounding grandiose, I predict you’ll welcome a certain novelty that resembles the invention of the wheel or the compass or the calendar.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Modern literary critic William Boyd declared that Aquarian author Anton Chekhov (1860–1904) was “the best short-story writer ever,” and “the first truly modern writer of fiction: secular, refusing to pass judgment, cognizant of the absurdities of our muddled, bizarre lives and the complex tragi-comedy that is the human condition.” Another contemporary critic, Harold Bloom, praised Chekhov’s plays, saying that he was “one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre.” We might imagine, then, that in the course of his career, Chekhov was showered with accolades. We’d be wrong about that, though. “If I had listened to the critics,” he testified, “I’d have died drunk in the gutter.” I hope that what I just said will serve as a pep talk for you as you explore and develop your own original notions in the coming weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Pisces-born Dorothy Steel didn’t begin her career as a film actress until she was 91 years old. She had appeared in a couple of TV shows when she was 89, then got a small role in an obscure movie. At age 92, she became a celebrity when she played the role of a tribal elder in Black Panther, one of the highest-grossing films of all time. I propose that we make her one of your inspirational role models for both the coming weeks and the next 12 months. Why? Because I suspect you will be ripening fully into a role and a mission you were born to embody and express. ∆
