Atascadero, SLO County on the fence about community choice energy

A

s cities throughout San Luis Obispo County take steps to join Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), two local jurisdictions remain undecided. Following a presentation by MBCP Communications Director J.R. Killigrew on June 25, the Atascadero City Council opted not to put a decision to join the community choice energy (CCE) agency on a future agenda. But the City Council agreed to revisit that question at its July 9 meeting. Mayor Heather Moreno and Councilmembers Roberta Fonzi and Heather Newsom said they wanted to coordinate with SLO County, which is also weighing the merits of MBCP, before taking any steps forward. The county is currently seeking a third-party analysis of MBCP and its financials before moving forward with a board meeting, County Administrative Officer Wade Horton told New Times. The county Board of Supervisors voted to end a more localized CCE effort a few years ago. “I think it’d be helpful to talk to the county before we put it on the agenda,” Atascadero Councilmember Fonzi said on June 25. “I’d rather wait.” Both county and Atascadero elected officials have expressed skepticism about MBCP, which is one of 12 CCEs operating in PG&E territory in California. State law allows local governments to form CCEs, buying and selling

often cleaner power, while incumbent utilities like PG&E continue maintaining the power lines and infrastructure. MBCP claims SLO County and its cities could save millions of dollars on electricity bills if they were to enroll. Mayor Moreno said she was concerned about how MBCP’s economic model would weather California’s push toward more renewable energy production and storage over time. “The cost to do that is astronomical,” she said. “I think it’s more affordable now than it will be in the future.” While Atascadero and the county wait on more information, they risk missing an August deadline that’s required in order to become MBCP members in 2021. That was the concern of Councilmembers Charles Bourbeau and Susan Funk. “I think for us to dismiss it and not put it on the agenda anytime in the near future really would make us the odd one out as the only city in the county to not consider this,” Bourbeau said. SLO County’s six other cities have all already voted to join MBCP. SLO and Morro Bay’s residents and businesses will become customers in 2020, since they finalized their decisions in 2018. Paso Robles, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, and Arroyo Grande will enroll in 2021. —Peter Johnson

Hormone therapy now available at Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood Central Coast’s vice president of community engagement. “That determined there was a huge unmet need for gender-affirming health care along the Central Coast,” she wrote in an email to New Times. With five locations on the coast, including Planned Parenthood health centers in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, the local chapter of the sexual health organization joins Community Health Centers of the Central Coast and UCSB’s Health Center in offering hormone treatment. Sometimes called hormone replacement therapy, gender-affirming therapy consists of either estrogen- or testosterone-based treatments. Many transgender people take hormone therapy as part of the gender transitioning process. “If a person is experiencing gender dysphoria, hormone therapy is one option which may make make them feel more at ease with [themselves], both psychologically and physically,” Mickelberry said. “Hormone therapy is often used to help create physical changes to the body.” Gender dysphoria is discomfort caused by a person’s gender identity being different from the gender they were assigned at birth. Planned Parenthood health centers in 28 states now offer gender-affirming hormone therapy, Mickelberry said. The service is offered to patients 18 and older, and the sexual health provider doesn’t require patients to participate in counseling or to provide documentation from a mental health professional to receive the therapy. Similar to the other health services Planned Parenthood provides, cost for gender-affirming care depends on an individual’s needs, insurance coverage, and income. Mickelberry said the organization works with all of its patients to ensure they get the care that they need, no matter what. As of Friday, June 21,

ENERGY DILEMMA Atascadero and San Luis Obispo County are still deliberating whether to become members of Monterey Bay Community Power, a community choice energy (CCE) agency, and leave PG&E. Five local cities have voted to join, but the two holdouts have lingering concerns.

After working with partners serving the LGBTQ community on a needs assessment, the local chapter of the nonprofit expanded its services, according to Julie Mickelberry,

about 10 patients had received gender-affirming care services through Planned Parenthood Central Coast. “Planned Parenthood’s doors are open to everyone—regardless of gender identity, gender expression, and/or sexual orientation,” Mickelberry said. “We believe that all people deserve highquality, affordable health care and compassionate nonjudgmental sexual health information no matter who they are or where they live.” —Camillia Lanham

After delay, SLO apartment complex’s affordable units are rented Throughout the 2018-19 school year, the first year that a four-story apartment building at 22 Chorro St. in SLO was open for business (mostly to college students), its four units set aside for “very low income” renters sat vacant. Those affordable studios—while critical to the 78-unit project being approved as designed (taller and denser than local zoning usually allows)—went unfilled all year, angering local residents who opposed the development and the city’s concessions. “Who is responsible for establishing eligibility for the low-income units and for making sure they are not manipulated? We need accountability,” SLO resident Odile Ayral wrote to the City Council in January 2019. Developer Loren Riehl—who has two other similar projects forthcoming on Foothill Boulevard and Palomar Avenue—told New Times on July 2 that his firm struggled to understand the process behind renting

the affordable units, like income certifications, and to find tenants that met the income requirements. Very-low-income renters must make between 30 and 50 percent of the area median income to qualify for that type of housing. Income certifications are done through a third-party agency, like the Housing Authority of SLO (HASLO), and the city of SLO runs a compliance monitoring program. “There was a pretty steep learning curve in figuring out how all this correctly works,” Riehl said. “Now we have it figured out.” Scott Smith, executive director of HASLO, told New Times that the agency has completed income certifications for three of the four very-low-income renters at the complex—all since May 2019. He said HASLO had previously reached out to apartment management about helping advertise or manage the affordable units since they weren’t getting filled. “When we inquired why they weren’t sending over people, they said their priority was to rent the market units first,” Smith said. “It wouldn’t have been hard to fill these. There are plenty of people who need them.” Riehl said that his staff remembers a different series of events with HASLO, and that ultimately the lapse was a matter of learning the ropes of affordable housing. He said the waitlist for the four affordable studios at 22 Chorro is now at 30 people.

“We would have zero incentive to not fill them if we could,” he said. “My confidence is that going forward these are going to be very quick and easy.” —Peter Johnson

Caltrans makes plans to manage traffic on Highway 1

Caltrans has been working with an advisory committee, stakeholder groups, and residents along the 100-mile stretch of Highway 1 between Cambria and Carmel to develop a plan to manage the impacts of increased travel along the scenic route. The goal of the sustainable transportation demand management plan is to provide a comprehensive framework to address the increasing visitor demand along the Big Sur coast, and Cambria residents weighed in on June 25. John Olejnik, a project manager for Caltrans, said that residents brought up similar issues at all of the public meetings held from Cambria to Carmel. “They’re concerned about the impacts of their quality of life because there’s a lot of people parking on the road, and, sadly, there are a lot of people that are leaving trash behind. People are making messes and parking where they shouldn’t be, and there’s generally just a lot of congestion on busy weekend periods,” Olejnik said. He said there were other concerns about the highway being overused, and some residents asked if it could become a toll road— the agency can’t charge people for using the

highway because it’s a public road. The effort to mitigate the impacts of visitors traveling along this stretch of the highway began because Caltrans realized there was more traffic along the Big Sur corridor. Olejnik said that more specifically, it was the increased number of people visiting the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. “There was a big problem of the natural reserve being trampled to death because of so many visitors. There are a lot of cars, and a lot of cars parking on the highway,” he said. “It was creating a situation that was not desirable.” These incidents are also happening along Bixby Bridge and Sycamore Canyon Road, which leads to Pfeiffer Beach. With this information, Olejnik said, Caltrans saw an opportunity to do a planning study to implement strategies to manage transportation demand. Caltrans is still in the beginning stages of collecting public input and data.

By this fall, the agency will look into suggesting shuttle systems, limiting off-highway parking, and identifying potential electric vehicle charging stations. With the plan, Caltrans is also hoping to address the physical and environmental constraints that limit the ability to expand roads, parking areas, and other transportation infrastructure.

Women’s care

PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

SLO County has only one abortion provider, and it’s Planned Parenthood

I

n San Luis Obispo County there is only one health care provider where a woman can receive a safe and legal in-clinic abortion. Planned Parethood Central Coast in the city of SLO offers an in-clinic abortion for women up to 16 weeks pregnant or an abortion pill option for up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. In all other circumstances, women need to travel outside the county for the procedure. Ruzena Brar was 18 weeks pregnant when she made the decision to terminate her pregnancy because she had found out that her daughter would most likely not make it through the birth—and if she did, she might not make it through the first year of her life. It would have been her and her husband’s third child. They already had two sons. Brar decided that if her child were to make it to term, she didn’t want that baby to suffer, so with a lot of pain she decided on abortion. “I knew some people did labor and delivery, but I knew I didn’t want to do that. I couldn’t imagine going through that to give birth to a dead baby,” Brar said, her eyes filling with tears. Brar was almost 15 weeks pregnant when she had gotten an ultrasound, a nuchal translucency—a sonographic prenatal screening scan to detect cardiovascular abnormalities in a fetus— and blood drawn. “We didn’t know it was a girl at the time, but with the ultrasound we could see her stretching her leg and moving. It was wonderful,” Brar said. She said the combined results and her age were put together to come up with a risk factor for Down syndrome and trisomy 18. Trisomy 18 is also known as Edwards syndrome. It’s a condition that causes severe developmental delays due to an extra chromosome. The condition has no treatment and is usually fatal before birth or within the first year of life. The doctor notified her that she had tested for a 1 in 14 chance for Down syndrome and 1 in 140 for trisomy 18. He recommended further tests. A week later she had another test. Days after that, Brar got a call that the initial results

were positive for trisomy 18. “I don’t remember what she said after that,” Brar said with a pause. “But I do remember that I said, ‘I want to schedule a D&E as soon as possible.’” D&E is dilation and evacuation, a pregnancy termination procedure that is done in the second trimester of pregnancy. The rest was a blur of telling her husband the bad news, telling her parents, researching the condition, waiting for the full results, scheduling a termination procedure, and mourning. When she called to check on her referral for the abortion, she was told it was pending to the Planned Parenthood in San Francisco. “I support Planned Parenthood, and I think they do great work. I got my birth control pills from there when I first moved here. I just felt that I’ve also seen protesters outside of the one here, and I didn’t want to have to go all the way to San Francisco, to a place that’s not private and to face protesters there,” she said. Brar inquired about a referral closer to home that was a hospital. “She was a really kind woman, and she was really helpful, but the exact words she said to me were: ‘This is a small town and we don’t want to be known for that.’ For me [an abortion] was critical medical care,” Brar said. “It made me feel like I was doing something illicit.” The woman on the other line did advocate on Brar’s behalf for a referral to a hospital in Los Angeles. Brar’s parents came down from Oregon to take care of her two sons while Brar and her husband drove south for the procedure. Aside from her own research, Brar received a lot of answers through a support group she found online for women who had experienced or were going to experience an abortion. From there, she learned to ask for handprints and footprints of her little girl, and what questions to ask. Most importantly, though, she learned that she wasn’t alone. Brar said she thinks of her little girl every day but she stands by her decision. She said she advises other women who are debating a termination procedure to:

SAFE ACCESS Ruzena Brar made the difficult decision to terminate a wanted pregnancy, due to medical complications, but local access to a safe procedure is limited.

Make the best decision they can with the information they have; know abortion can be a loving and compassionate choice; get support; know they may not be able to get the procedure they prefer; and understand that if their insurance doesn’t cover termination they may be able to negotiate directly with the provider. Jenna Tosh, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Central Coast, said it’s heartbreaking to hear that patients feel judged or shamed by protesters outside of Planned Parenthood health centers who don’t understand the complex circumstances that patients are dealing with. “We do everything that we can to create a safe environment, but the protesters have freedom of speech. They have the ability to stand outside of our health centers, which unfortunately sometimes includes harassing, judging, and shaming patients who are accessing personal and private health care services inside our doors,” Tosh said. She said in an average year, the San Luis Obispo Planned Parenthood Health Center sees about 4,600 people through 7,800 unique health center visits. Planned Parenthood’s goal, Tosh said, is to focus on keeping people healthy. Services include cancer screenings,

Preserve your Memories

sexually transmitted infection screenings and treatment, breast wellness exams, birth control education and supplies, gender affirming hormone therapy, and compassionate abortion care. Tosh said that 1 in 4 Americans who can get pregnant will have an abortion by the time they’re 45. About half of all pregnancies in the United States each year are unintended, and 4 in 10 of these are ended by medically safe legal abortions. “Which means that all different sorts of people of different ages and for different reasons experience abortion,” she said. Planned Parenthood is the only provider in San Luis Obispo County that provides termination procedures, but Tosh said she doesn’t know why that is. “I don’t know that I can answer that. When I first moved to California from Central Florida, I was quite surprised actually that the access to abortion along the Central Coast was primarily through Planned Parenthood, because I think California sort of prides itself in being a reproductive health leader in the country,” she said. Recently, Tosh said Planned Parenthood has had an outpouring of support and outrage from patients and the community due to the recent discussions of limitations and barriers to accessing abortion services. Several states in the U.S. are working to put barriers around women’s access to abortion services. Louisiana recently passed a bill to ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, typically around six weeks. Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Ohio also passed similar bills. Alabama legislators voted to ban abortions in nearly all circumstances, while Utah and Arkansas have limited the procedure to before the middle of the second trimester. “It’s outrageous that in 2019, an unprecedented number of extreme abortion bans are being enacted across the country. But while other states are working to dismantle access, California is working proactively to expand access,” she said. California Gov. Gavin Newsom proposed a budget that doubles funding for reproductive health to a record $100 million. As part of the investment, Planned Parenthood health centers and other health care providers will be able to reach more patients and increase services in underserved communities. ∆ Staff writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

Show it off A little body positivity goes a long way

I

n a pair of sweatpants, a colorful, shiny jacket, and his trans-pride Converse, Taylor Wold took a walk down the runway in the San Luis Obispo Guild Hall on June 15. Currently between his freshman and sophomore years in high school, Wold was one of 18 who strutted down the catwalk during the The Body Positivity All Gender Fashion Show presented by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance’s (GALA) Queer Youth group. “It celebrated body positivity, and I saw a few of my friends get really happy about feeling so respected and getting celebrated for being themselves,” Wold said. “Not everybody sees beauty in the same way, and everyone is their own type of beautiful.” The whole point of the show was to give people who don’t fit societal stereotypes about gender and beauty a place to shine. Normally, Wold said, body positivity is restricted to the “ideal” body types. Most of the world doesn’t fit into that box. GALA Executive Director Michelle Call said the organization wanted to put on a production that would help LGBTQ youth who are affected by negative body image feel better about their mental health. It’s something they can look back on when they might not be feeling that great. Call points to the 58 percent of transgendered youth in San Luis Obispo County who have seriously considered committing suicide in the past 12 months as one of the reasons something like body positivity is so important.

TEASE SLO Tease Burlesque performer Madam Minge took her turn on the catwalk during The Body Positivity Fashion Show. The burlesque group helped pay for and organize the show.

“I had one person tell me that this was the first time that they felt that looked good in their body in maybe their whole life,” Call said. “We’re definitely going to continue with the body positive programming.” SLO Tease Burlesque gave GALA the funds and helped them put the show on, and at least 100 people showed up to support, including families with chidren. “There were a lot of tweens in the audience,” Call said. “It was really a community event.” ∆ Reach Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

For mental health A statewide initiative is working to increase mental health services for the local LGBTQ community

N

ot all visits to the doctor are created equal, and this can be especially true for members of the LGBTQ community. Take for example, Gay and Lesbian Alliance (GALA) Executive Director Michelle Call’s recent trip to see a doctor with her 15-year-old child. “The child was mis-gendered from the minute we walked in to the minute we walked out,” Call said. “It was pretty clear that the office didn’t have the knowledge that was necessary.” Calls’ child identifies as non-binary, but the office didn’t use her child’s chosen name, and the doctor tried but failed to use the right pronoun when addressing her child. It’s not uncommon to hear stories like this from individuals in the LGBTQ community, according to Elissa Feld, an associate with Transitions Mental-Health Association and co-lead (alongside Call) of the local #Out4Mental Health Task Force. Feld said it comes down to the front desk of a health or mental health care provider’s office and a lack of knowledge or basic awareness about using LGBTQ-affirming language, such as using the correct pronouns when addressing a patient. Because of this common experience that members of the LGBTQ community are having, the task force is focusing on tackling two policy changes locally. The first is to facilitate or host more LGBTQaffirming trainings for the public and for health care and mental health providers, and the second is to create guidelines for what makes a provider LGBTQ-affirming. “When someone has a negative experience, it’s hard, and it’s already hard enough reaching out for that mental health support regardless of these extra barriers,” Feld said. GALA’s current Cal Poly intern, Alexa Szombathy, is tasked with research and outreach to understand how other counties have created guidelines for their providers, and something like that might work locally. Szombathy said she’s currently asking mental health providers

in San Luis Obispo County whether they identify as LGBTQ-affirming, and, if so, how they became affirming. Created by California’s Mental Health Services Oversight Accountability Commission, #Out4MentalHealth is a statewide initiative funded by Proposition 63, which distributes funds to each county within the state for mental health programs. The goal of #Out4MentalHealth is to create a place where members of the LGBTQ community can go for help if and when they need it. The initiative aims to eliminate mental health disparities for the LGBTQ community throughout the state. The Mental Health Services Oversight Accountability Commission, NorCal Mental Health America, and California LGBT Health and Human Services have worked together to identify counties within the state that would benefit from a task force that would work to increase mental health services for the LGBTQ community. San Luis Obispo was one of the five counties identified. Feld said #Out4MentalHealth Task Force formally began in July 2017. “With that, we have this support from the folks up in Sacramento to help guide us in policy analysis, needs assessment, in helping us navigate our unique community, and to get stakeholders on board,” Feld said. “But the real work is done here in the county with bringing everyone to the table with the goal of advocating for increasing mental health services for the LGBTQ community.” Within the first year, Feld said, the task force had several meetings that included members from the community at large, LGBTQ community, and health care providers. “It’s really cool to see how our county is taking notice and making efforts to be inclusive with services and ensuring all individual’s needs are being met appropriately,” she said. ∆

Queer and ready for a beer The Central Coast has a thriving LGBTQ community, so where are all the gay bars?

A

s a teen, Rory Uribe fantasized about going to a gay bar or club and finally being able to be unabashedly gay in public. Uribe, who uses nonbinary pronouns, has lived in Santa Maria their whole life, and it hasn’t always felt like the most accepting or inclusive place for the LGBTQ population. Though Uribe came out to their parents and friends during high school, they still don’t feel totally accepted in Santa Maria or by their family. So Uribe always thought the gay bars in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties would provide that much-needed and missing support system and network. “I’ve dreamed of going to a gay bar since I was like, 16,” Uribe told New Times. “And I was unpleasantly surprised when I turned 21 and found out there aren’t any here.” The lack of LGBTQ-specific nightlife on the Central Coast is an issue much of the local gay and trans community is forced to work around. Santa Barbara’s once thriving gay club scene dwindled, and eventually completely disappeared, as varying sexual orientations and gender identities became more widely accepted and dating apps became more readily available. Those completely safe and inclusive spaces are less of a necessity for the LGBTQ community as a whole now, and that’s positive progress. But it’s left the Central Coast without a gay bar in reach—the nearest (according to rumor and Google) are in Ventura, Fresno, and San Jose—and many locals say the safety gay bars and clubs provide is still very much needed, especially in the more conservative portions of the state. Uribe, who is now a student at Allan Hancock College, finally made their gay bar dream come true this spring while visiting a friend in San Francisco. It was “a lot,” Uribe said, laughing, but overall it was a great experience, and it’s one that’s missing for young LGBTQ people locally.

*****

Like so many other LGBTQ residents in the area and across the nation, Uribe helped start an organization dedicated to giving gay, trans, and queer individuals a safe space to meet up and build support systems. Uribe and other Hancock students revitalized the school’s long idle Queers and Allies Club last year, and the group regularly hosts meetings, coffee meetups, and parties, which Uribe dubbed “gay bashes.” Sometimes those events are on campus or in someone’s home, and sometimes they’re at restaurants or bars. When the club goes out, Uribe said they have to be careful about where to go and how open to be. “And it would be nice to have a space to go and just know that everyone could accept us,” they said. That’s an issue a lot of locals run into, including the owners of SLOQueerdos, an organization that puts on monthly drag shows and other LGBTQ-inclusive parties on the Central Coast. Co-owner Frank Dominguez initially started SLOQueerdos a few years ago when he moved back to the Central

and movie nights, that are becoming more popular social outlets. Those are great, but Chufar and Johns said they’ve noticed that younger kids attending the events spend a lot of time alone on their phones. Younger generations are using dating apps to find other gays in town now rather than gay bars, and Chufar and Johns said that’s OK. Those once uniquely safe spaces aren’t as needed in places like Santa Barbara anymore. “We’re more or less accepted here,” Chufar said, adding that he and Johns are members of the Santa Barbara Elks Club. “If you can imagine that!” Johns said with a laugh. But that’s not necessarily true in other, more conservative swaths of the Central Coast, according to representatives of the House of Pride and Equality (HOPE), a Santa Maria-based organization dedicated to creating safe spaces for the local gay and trans community. Cee Chavez works with HOPE, and said that while she might occasionaly see openly gay couples in North County, it’s not as predominate or accepted as in South County. “It’s not as welcoming here to go out,” Chavez said. “I wouldn’t go out with my girlfriend here and feel the same as I would if I went out in Santa Barbara.” That gets at the core of why HOPE started a few years ago, according to Audy Macdonald, a founding member of the organization. There just weren’t many spaces for the LGBTQ community to meet up and have fun in Santa Maria, and while bars and clubs might present issues for hosts monthly those struggling with alcohol and addiction issues, HOPE’s monthly meetups are typically held at coffee shops, restaurants, or in Macdonald’s home. Booze is typically expected at an after party, though, and HOPE hosts a party and drag show each year after its Pride festival. That almost didn’t even happen last year because it was so difficult to find a willing venue in the Santa Maria Valley. Macdonald said HOPE finally made a connection with the events coordinator at Presqu’ile Winery mere weeks before the show date. That wouldn’t be a problem if there was a gay bar somewhere in the area, according to Anthony Loverde, another HOPE official. Loverde said there will always be a need for some kind of LGBTQ safe space because there will always be LGBTQ individuals who are just coming up and out and in need of support. It might be tricky to keep a gay bar running in this area, he said, but there has to be a way to do it. “I would definitely drink at the establishment daily if someone opened one,” Loverde said. ∆

Coast after living in bigger cities for several years. Dominguez grew up in Nipomo and when he returned to the area, it was as if nothing had changed. He wanted to spice things up by starting a group that would make it easier for local LGBTQ individuals to meet, and was mulling over the idea one day when he walked into the now closed Metro Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo and just happened to spot two gay couples inside. “And I was like, ‘Oh my god, is this a gay bar?’” GAY CLUB ALCHEMISTS Daniel Gomez (left) and Dominguez said. Frank Dominguez (right) are known for turning typical It wasn’t, but Metro bars into hugely successful, LGBTQ-inclusive parties.

Since then, SLOQueerdos has hosted successful shows and events across the Central Coast each month and on special occasions. But Dominguez said it hasn’t always been easy to find venues. While some local businesses—including SLO Brew and The Siren in Morro Bay—are incredibly supportive, others aren’t. One bar owner told SLOQueerdos that he didn’t want his establishment to be known as a gay bar, Dominguez said. One business in Santa Maria allowed SLOQueerdos to host an event there, but shut down the whole bar and called it a “private event.” MULTIPLE DOPE QUEENS SLOQueerdos He’s heard it all, but said business drag shows throughout the Central Coast. owners typically say they don’t want to “alienate” their other customers. generations of the LGBTQ community.

Ocean view storefront D iane Matzner has been a small business retail owner and operator for three decades. She spent most of that time, 22 years, operating three retail storefronts in Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive. Matzner grew up near the beach, so being in Palm Springs was always very different for her. “I was literally a fish out of water, and I was always thinking ‘I can’t wait to get back to the beach,’” Matzner said. After 27 years inland, she made her way back to a community by the ocean— she landed in Cambria. Matzner didn’t really plan on or think about opening another store. She felt like she was on a sabbatical from the work she had done for a large portion of her life. “I popped into The Garden Shed one day with a cup of coffee from [Lily’s Coffee House]. I went to the back and met Nick Wilkinson from Grow, and I just thought, ‘Man, this is a really cool vibe back here,” she said. There was a small shed for lease in the courtyard of The Garden Shed and it’s where Matzner got back in the retail business again. Her first shop in Cambria is called Ocean Heir, where you can find a bounty of clothing, jewelry, letterpress greeting cards, books, home goods, and gifts. Just the way she stumbled on her first store, Matzner found the location for her second—although, she said, the location found her. She was on a walk along Moonstone Drive when she saw a for rent sign in one of the storefronts. After running Ocean Heir for seven years, Matzner is expanding with the recent opening of Ebb & Flow on Moonstone Drive.

PHOTO COURTESY OF EBB & FLOW

The building has large windows that look out to Moonstone Beach, and Matzner said she felt it was a beautiful location for another addition to her business. “The location is just epic, and that’s what really got me,” she said. “I keep joking to everyone that I could have nothing in here and just charge an entry fee to just come inside, sit down, and stare down at the ocean.” Ebb & Flow will have a different vibe than Ocean Heir. Matzner said the clothes and items in her store will have a more natural look in order to blend in with the ocean just steps away from the shop’s front door. The location has a little history that Matzer is holding on to. It used to be a live-in gallery for an artist. When Matzner told her friends in the community that she was expanding into another location on Moonstone Drive, they already knew where because of the long-time local artist. So Matzner is leaving one wall in the shop as a gallery as a nod to the artist. She’s planning to have local artists display their creations on the wall for two to three months at a time. “I hope it will be well received by the community, because I’m definitely making an effort to include the community in this. I want it to be a local place first,” she said. To learn more about Ebb & Flow, visit ebbandflowoceanfront.com. Matzner said the shop will be open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Clean energy obstruction Atascadero needs to get on the community choice energy bandwagon

W

ill being overly cautious cost the city of Atascadero, its residents, and its businesses money? In 2002, the California Legislature passed a bill allowing community choice energy (CCE)—a model that allows communities to join together to purchase electricity on behalf of their residents. Since that time, 19 CCE agencies have formed and are serving one-third of the state of California. The model is expanding to the Central Coast and providing proven benefits. The cities of SLO and Morro Bay are forward thinking and have committed to join forces with Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP)—the Central Coast’s community choice provider. Beginning in 2020, its citizens will be able to choose 100 percent carbon-free power as an option to PG&E. It is estimated that each residential and commercial ratepayer will have a minimum of 5 percent rate savings relative to their PG&E bill. I recently learned that Paso Robles, Grover Beach, and Pismo Beach have completed their public process, and Arroyo Grande is one step away from requesting membership in MBCP for similar if not better benefits in early 2021. I was excited to attend the Atascadero City Council meeting on June 25 to see the presentation by MBCP. My assumption was that my town was going

to join the bandwagon and also allow all residents and businesses of Atascadero to have the option to choose to use this clean energy provider. It was very disappointing to watch three of the City Council members (Mayor Heather Moreno, Councilmember Roberta Fonzi, and Councilmember Heather Newsom) stonewall this option. The only commitment they needed to make was to put the discussion of MBCP and the creation of an ordinance on the agenda for July 9. This would start the process of membership in mid-August—the critical date when all other cities in SLO County need to commit to be included in this year’s round of jurisdictions to join MBCP. It was unbelievable that the three City Council members blocked this from happening.

themselves, have been active participants in the program since March 2018. He also provided a detailed timeline of all of the talks MBCP has participated in with all of the cities in SLO County and the county itself, as well as the oneon-one conversations he has had with the existing and incoming mayor of Atascadero. MBCP even hosted two public workshops on May 15 and 16 in North and South County to engage and educate the public. MBCP also collaborated with the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce in a business community study session on June 11. If the city of Atascadero opts to join MBCP, as all of the remaining incorporated cities in our county are doing, by late August, it would only have to pay a portion of the setup fees to have

Community choice is not a new thing, nor is it something that is ‘risky’ at all— again there are at least 19 similar agencies serving a third of California. The representative from MBCP gave a thorough presentation at the meeting about how cities can partner with the energy provider and gave an overview of the cost savings that residential and business customers (including each city) should expect to receive each month. He talked about the fact that all cities in Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey counties, as well as the counties

the documents drawn up. The quoted amount was between $5,000 and $7,500. Can anyone explain the last time the city had an opportunity to spend $5,000 to $7,500 in order for the community to save up to or potentially more than $300,000 on future electricity bills? Moreno, Fonzi, and Newsom appeared to be doing everything within their power to be obstructionists. Yes, this may be

the first time they have heard the full presentation, but the rest of the cities in the county have been in engaged in this topic since March, and there has been plenty of media coverage. These three council members did not seem to care about whether the residents wanted a choice. They even went to the effort to ignore the results of the quick poll of meeting attendees where 20 to 25 people were in favor and five or six were opposed. To everyone’s surprise, they were leaning toward the city waiting out this year, delaying the cost savings, and having to pay approximately $35,000 as a setup fee next year. The city of Atascadero is being irresponsible with its fiduciary responsibility to its residents by not moving forward with joining the MBCP. As a 20-plus-year resident of the city, I find this unacceptable. Community choice is not a new thing, nor is it something that is “risky” at all—again there are at least 19 similar agencies serving a third of California. If you are a resident or a business owner of Atascadero, please join me in calling or emailing all members of the City Council to let them know you want to be able to choose a more economical and clean energy provider ASAP. ∆ Janice Petko writes to New Times from the city of Atascadero.

Put safety first in Oceano

Thanks for entering our 31st annual 55 Fiction Contest! A brief story, fifty-five words or less, with a headline no longer than seven words.

On July 11 in SLO, the California Coastal Commission will discuss the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area permit and transitioning the park to passive uses that don’t harm the environment and our communities. A study is being trotted out to prop up the position that without off-roading, the local economy would crash. This is rubbish, as it doesn’t account for the normal, non-vehicular beach tourism that would replace ATV tourism. No area of the California coast is suffering because they don’t allow vehicles on their beaches. One need only contrast the economies of thriving Pismo Beach, which banned vehicles decades ago, and depressed Oceano, where such use continues, to see that off-roaders are not essential to success—and, in fact, they are a drag on the nearest community. Further, the study was performed by a company owned by a self-styled adventure motorcycle rider and included areas in Pismo Beach such as the monarch butterfly grove. Still, “ATV riding” barely managed a 4 percent majority over beach campfires and looking at the sunset. Let’s make Oceano Beach safe for sunset strolls. Cynthia Replogle president Oceano Beach Community Association

Take a puff and plant the stuff

It is incomprehensible that SLO doesn’t yet have a countywide Peace, Freedom, and Marijuana Festival, complete with giant blunt floats and free bags of weed thrown to the crowd—that Highway 101 isn’t crowded on both sides by pungent, verdant cannabis fields swaying in the breeze. What is this, Mayberry R.F.D.? Are we all a bunch of drooling goobers? Look, folks: The war on marijuana was a lie. It was waged by chemical companies afraid their poisons would be replaced by natural cannabis products and by control freaks and authoritarians afraid that people might have wild ideas under the influence of pot and start thinking for themselves. Further, it was a complete waste of time and money. There was always pot next to the schools, and in the schools. There’s pot in the DMV, in the churches, in the Starbucks, in the libraries. There is pot everywhere. There always has been. Somehow we survived. The idea that marijuana was “evil” was a sham. Diablo Canyon is closing.

A little help from Big Oil

I’m just writing to congratulate Sentinel Peak Resources on its recent approval from the federal Environmental Protection Agency to pump toxic waste into a groundwater aquifer beneath Price Canyon—after two years of already doing this without a permit, that is. Thanks also to the California Department of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources for helping to make it happen. That’s definitely worth a round of Champagne in some skyscraper penthouse in Houston! Also, many thanks to Chevron, Shell, ExxonMobil, et al., for contributing to the effort by spending $8 million in lying to the people of this county and buying the Measure G election last fall. That was huge. By the way, Sentinel Peak, your signs on Price Canyon Road have an embarrassing typo. Instead of “Thanks to SLO County for your support,” shouldn’t your signs say “Thanks to Big Oil for your support”? Christopher Hamma Arroyo Grande

Californians want death row to function properly

In 2012, California voters rejected a ballot measure to abolish capital punishment by 500,000 votes, and then in 2016 Californians again voted one down

by nearly 1 million votes. California has continuously demanded that criminals who commit the most heinous crimes should face the death penalty. Since 2016, California’s death row is home to criminals who killed more than 1,000 innocent people, including 226 children, 43 peace officers, and 294 victims who were raped or tortured before they were murdered. After promising voters in 2018 that he would abide by existing law, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced, in defiance of state law, a unilateral moratorium on executions of death row inmates whose legal appeals had been exhausted. This is in flagrant defiance of state law and the voters’ approval in 2016 of Proposition 66’s reforms intended to speed the death penalty process. Since the Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County recognizes that victims and their loved ones want justice and deserve the closure they are promised when a murderer is sent to death row, we passed a unanimous resolution on June 21, 2019, to support retaining California’s capital punishment. The people of California have spoken again. Matt Kokkonen member Republican Party of SLO

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AL FONZI

Under siege S LO County is under siege, not from foreign armies but from our own state government. You can count on the California Coastal Commission following through with its stated objective of terminating off-road vehicle recreation at the Oceano Dunes State Vehiclular Recreation Area. The fact that it is the last stretch of beach remaining in the state to ride off-road adjacent to the ocean is irrelevant. Of course, the Coastal Commission will go through all the motions of public hearings, but the decision is made; they as much as said it in the staff report on the issue. It is doubly ironic as the SLO County Air Pollution Control District (APCD) hearing board has spent the last several years engaging with public comment, hearings, and devising plans with State Parks to come up with mitigation measures for the air pollution generated by off-road vehicle use at the dunes. Many scientific studies were generated to scientifically and legally prove that a public health hazard existed at unacceptable levels and that drastic measures were needed to mitigate the hazard of blowing sand. The particulate matter was a form of silicate that when inhaled inflicted severe damage in the deepest recesses of the lung. This is not new science: During the Dust Bowl of

the 1930s, as documented in the book The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan, a phenomena known as “dust pneumonia” killed and crippled thousands. “The prairie dust has a high silica content which causes silicosis. As it builds up in the lungs, it tears at the honeycombed web of air sacs and weakens the body’s resistance. After prolonged exposure, it has the same effect on people as coal dust has on a miner. Silicosis has long been a plague of people who work underground and is the oldest occupational respiratory disease … it takes years to build up.” Dust Bowl conditions do not exist at the dunes on the scale of the Great Depression Dust Bowl. For instance, “In Vinita, Oklahoma, the temperature soared above 100 degrees for 35 consecutive days. On the 36th day, it reached 117. … The dust was like a nail file, a grit strong enough to hurt. People rubbed Vasoline in their nostrils as a filter.” The long-term health effects of ultrafine dust from the dunes are real, just as the effects of the silica mixed with heavy metals from the collapse of the World Trade Center have been ruled responsible for the premature deaths and respiratoryrelated early retirement of 2,000 first

responders and contractors who worked on the rubble pile. Something had to be done to mitigate the dust from the Oceano Dunes. The APCD hearing board and State Parks had finally begun to make progress; that progress has now been pre-empted by the Coastal Commissions’ stated intent to shut down off-road vehicle recreation. As a former hazmat specialist and instructor, I’m puzzled by one action that often occurs when an intractable hazardous material poses a threat to public health. In hazmat, you contain and remove the hazard or you remove the people from the hazard—or usually both. In this case, we can’t totally remove the hazard, a respiratory threat from ultrafine blowing dust, but we can remove the people. Maybe it’s time for a “Love Canal” solution, removing the homes (using plume modeling to determine areas most at risk, for portions or all of the housing developments affected by dust hazard). Homes can be red-tagged and condemned by the county health officer. While this may seem harsh, every homeowner was given disclosure statements about local hazards when they purchased their homes yet they chose to buy there. Also, developers probably shouldn’t have cut down thousands of eucalyptus trees that formed a partial windbreak and some protection from blowing dust, but it happened. According to “old-timers” who recall working with bandanas against the

dust from the dunes in the 1940s, this dust hazard has always existed, but offhighway recreational vehicles have made the problem worse. It will take decades to mitigate the problem by plantings and windbreaks, but I would think the hazard to human health makes it unacceptable for any exposure at current levels. The Oceano Dunes is the only remaining area in the state designated for off-road recreational vehicles adjacent to the ocean and provides enormous economic benefits to the county. The economic loss, especially to South County, will be severe: $243 million in economic activity is at risk as 2 million visitors, mostly from the Central Valley, will have no place to play out of the heat. The entire county will be affected as every town along Highway 101 benefits from pass-through tourism. It’s possible that South County communities will return to their economically challenged state of the 1960s. When coupled with the closure of Diablo Canyon and rumored shortfall of decommissioning funds, small businesses and public agencies are in for some economic pain. I suspect the Phillips 66 Refinery in Nipomo will be next. We are a county under siege. ∆ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

The Shredder

What’s a gal to do? W hat does SLO County have in common with states in the South? I’ll give you a hint. It stars with “A” and ends with “bortion.” Anybody? Bueller? ... Bueller? It’s not as easy as you might think to get an abortion in this county. Planned Parenthood is the only place where someone can get an abortion in SLO County—and even those are limited to 16 weeks and earlier. And if you head into that clinic in downtown San Luis Obispo, you will most likely get protested. Some asshole is probably going to call you a “baby killer” and thrust a really gross picture of what’s purported to be an aborted fetus in your face—which is just what you want to see when you’re walking into a clinic to do one of the hardest things you will probably ever do in your life. Yay, free speech! And it’s probably going to be the same wild-eyed character who’s always lurking around, shoving his righteous religious anger in people’s faces—my old pal, Danny “I have lots of dead baby pictures” Ehinger, director of the Abolitionist Society of San Luis Obispo. That guy is such a scamp! Remember in 2016, when he snuck an anti-abortion float into Templeton’s Fourth of July parade? Parents were just delighted that their children could bear witness to baby doll parts, that infamous fetus image, and a sign reading:

“This is your Holocaust. End the Global Holocaust.” Happy freakin’ Fourth of July, Templeton! And happy birthday, ’Merica! What do you think parents told their children? I mean, he’s just so goddamn patriotic. I wonder if there’s another lovely little small-town parade on Ehinger’s to-do list this year. Keep those eyes peeled, people! I want updates. I made the mistake of going to the Abolitionist Society’s Facebook page. I know, I have a problem. Sorry, not sorry! “We don’t call abortion murder because we hate women in the same way we don’t call homosexuality sin because we hate homosexuals. ... We say it because God says it,” one of the posts states. Oh. My. God. Did you feel my eyes roll into the top of my skull right now. I actually heard them. I just can’t with these people, who also happen to believe that the Constitution doesn’t grant us our rights. Those come from God, duh! If you don’t swing into line with the rest of us God-fearing folks, you ain’t got no rights, ya hear? This is ’Merica, where only what we believe to be true is true, dammit! If you’re a woman in trouble in this county, you have to drive south to at least Ventura or north to San Jose to get any health care more complicated than what’s offered in downtown SLO. Or you’ll have to drive to Los Angeles or San Francisco.

That’s at least three hours and more than 150 miles in the car. Being female here is like living in Louisiana or Arkansas, states with the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation. Where you might have to drive across state lines to get access to the care you need. Why is it like that here? Planned Parenthood Central Coast CEO Jenna Tosh told New Times she wasn’t sure of the answer. But when she moved here from Florida, she was pretty shocked! “I was quite surprised actually that access to abortion along the Central Coast was primarily through Planned Parenthood because I think California sort of prides itself in a being a reproductive health leader in the country,” Tosh said. Well, that was before Catholic health care providers like Dignity Health took over damn near every medical center between here and Arizona! Thank God for organizations like Planned Parenthood, which provide care to people who can’t get it elsewhere. Planned Parenthood Central Coast also recently started providing genderaffirming care services, including hormone replacement therapy—which

many transgender people seek to help them look more like how they feel. And it’s just in time for Pride month! It also happens to be the 50th anniversary of the uprising at the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City. Credited with re-invigorating the LGBTQ rights movement, it is indeed something to be celebrated! Now, if only we could get Planned Parenthood to open some gay bars up on the Central Coast, then we’d really be cooking! That’s an unmet need! And I’m sure people would pay for their own drinks. No insurance needed! What’s up with that, people? There really aren’t any gay bars in SLO and Santa Barbara counties. You also have to drive to Ventura or San Jose to go to one of those—and no, there aren’t any folks of the Ehinger ilk skulking around those bar doors. At least we’ve got the SLOQueerdos to help us all party hardy and stay full of glitter, spice, and everything nice (and naughty). And the bars on the Central Coast—at least in SLO County —are LGBTQ friendly. Let’s just forget about Santa Maria for a second, which has bar owners worried they’re going to “alienate” their customers if they host a drag show. Seriously? It’s 2019, people! This is California! Oh, whoops. I forgot we’re on the Central Coast for a second. Sorry. ∆ Shredder might move to San Francisco. Send a new cardboard box and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

PREACHER’S SON Southern rock, blues, and gospel singer Paul Thorn plays Presqu’ile Winery on July 6.

Paul Thorn returns to the Central Coast

Y

ou may be cool, but you’re probably not Paul Thorn-level cool. The Southern gentleman and world class singersongwriter was a professional boxer who fought a televised bout with Roberto Durán in 1988. Thorn’s career record was 10-3-1, with one of the losses coming at Durán’s famed “Hands of Stone” in that fight. After his boxing career, he was living and gigging in Tupelo, Mississippi, where he was “discovered” by Miles Copeland, The Police drummer Stewart Copeland’s brother. He began his recording career in 1997 with Hammer and Nail, and his most recent album, the gospel-filled Don’t Let the Devil Ride, came out last year. It’s his ninth studio album. “This is the culmination of my whole life in music, coming back to my gospel roots,” Thorn said in press materials. “My message on this record is ‘let’s get together’—I want to help lighten your load and make you smile.” Born in Wisconsin but raised in Mississippi, Thorn is a preacher’s son, and that background informs his music. He spent a lot of time in church, singing and participating in his father’s services. He and his father often visited neighboring African-American congregations, “where he became entranced with the music whose infectious spirit is captured on the new album.” Don’t Let the Devil Ride is filled with the songs of black southern gospel groups. Some guest performers include the Blind Boys of Alabama, the McCrary Sisters, the Preservation Hall Jazz Horns, and Bonnie Bishop. The record was mostly inspired by the African-American branch of his father’s church, the Okolona Sunrise Church of Prophecy. “There might be 10 people playing the tambourine, but the rhythm was locked in, and they’d let me play bass,” Thorn

recalled. “I loved the Appalachian gospel of my parents’ church, but it was a treat to play with those musicians. They worshiped in a different way and the music was different, and I feel blessed to have been in that church setting.” Thorn’s feelings about religion have evolved from his youthful experiences, which were filled with fire and brimstone-style sermons and where some congregants spoke in tongues. “I think that they use guilt to intimidate you, but I don’t buy into that anymore. There ain’t no love in that,” Thorn said. “One of the things that I take a lot of pride in is that I love everybody, and what I learned in church paid dividends. When I’m up there entertaining, it’s also a glimpse of what my life has been, and how gospel music has molded me into who I am.” Thorn wasn’t allowed to listen to secular music as a kid. He remembers as a teen having to hide two albums he secretly bought—Elton John’s and Huey Lewis’—but he listened to the likes of Kiss, Peter Frampton, and the bawdy “chitlin’ circuit” comedy albums at friends’ houses. Eventually his rebelliousness landed him on the wrong side of his father, so at 18 he took out a loan to buy a trailer, started working in a furniture factory, joined the National Guard, started playing solo gigs in Tupelo for $50 a night, and boxed professionally. “I went a long way in boxing, and got to fight one of the greatest, but the reason Durán beat me and everyone else was that he had the ability to relax under extreme pressure,” Thorn recalled. “When I was in the ring, I was nervous and afraid, but when I’m on stage I’m

comfortable. I’ve been singing in front of people all my life, and I know what I’ve got to do.” Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents are bringing Paul Thorn to Presqu’ile Winery on Saturday, July 6 (doors at 6 p.m.; all ages; $27 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $30 at the door). This guy puts on an amazing show, and his stories are as good as his music. Don’t miss it! Also this week from Numbskull and Good Medicine comes Rising Appalachia at Presqu’ile Winery on Sunday, July 7 (doors at 6 p.m.; all ages; $25 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly. com or $30 at the door). Sisters Leah and Chloe Smith have traveled the world and used those experiences to develop their sound that’s filled with global influences. “We’re folk musicians at our core,” Leah explained in press materials. “The experience of playing music together, looking at each other, is the bedrock of what we do and how we’ve grown up with music.”

In addition to Leah (vocals, banjo, bodhran) and Chloe (guitar, fiddle, banjo), the band includes David Brown (stand-up bass, baritone guitar), Biko Casini (world percussion, n’goni), Arouna Diarra (n’goni, talking drum), and Duncan Wickel (fiddle, cello). You can get your warm summer night outdoor fun fix when The Brothers Comatose plays the SLO Mission Plaza on Thursday, July 11 (5:30 p.m.; all ages; $18 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $20 at the door), with Derek Senn and Arthur Watership opening. The Brothers Comatose mixes traditional bluegrass, country, and rock. U.S. Marines vet and award-winning singer-songwriter Gethen Jenkins plays Sweet Springs Saloon on Thursday, July 11 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $13 presale at Boo Boo’s or ticketfly.com or $15 at the door).

READY TO RECORD?

Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue plays the Fremont Theater on Tuesday, July 9 (9 p.m.; all ages; $45.49 at Boo Boo Records or fremontslo. com). On his new album, Parking Lot Symphony on Blue Note Records, he starts with ”Laveau Dirge No. 1,” which is named after one of New Orleans’ most famous voodoo queens, but the mourning ends there and the album is filled with the sort of funk and jazz he’s known for. Members of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Meters, Better Than Ezra, and Dumpstaphunk co-wrote some of the songs, and the album began with Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews in a room, all alone, back in New Orleans. “I had two weeks at home so I went to the studio and set up the ‘playground,’” he recalled in press materials. “I had everything in a circle: tuba, trombone, trumpet, keyboard, Fender Rhodes, Wurly, B3 organ, guitar, bass, drums— and me buried in the middle. It’s a life record about prevailing no matter what type of roadblock is in front of you.”

Get weird

Up at Vina Robles Amphitheatre, check out Jim James and The Claypool Lennon Delirium on Friday, July 5 (7 p.m.; all ages; $31 to $41 at vinaroblesamphitheatre.com). “For over 150 years, the firm of Claypool and Lennon has been providing clients with only the finest in rock and roll delirium and stark raving madness,” James said in press materials. “This summer, I am excited and honored to say that we will be teaming up to offer a brand new twist on one of the most time tested and proven methods for inducing beautifully swirling and whirling delightfully delicious delirium: the healing power of rock and roll!” “Tour pairing is often a challenge in my world but I think we have a good package with The Delirium and Jim James,” Claypool added. “Jim’s music, from my perspective, is palatable to the masses yet has just enough eclecticism to keep an oddball like me intrigued. I look forward to shambling around the country with him.” STARKEY continued page 35

FLASHBACK In her art honoring the Stonewall riots, photographer Lynn Schmidt played with digitally manipulating and collaging her images, like in this piece on LGBTQ activist Marsha P. Johnson.

HONORING THE PAST Lynn Schmidt, the GALA Center Gallery coordinator, wanted to honor the Stonewall riots for Pride this year. The 1969 riots marked the beginning of activism for the rights of the LGBTQ community in the U.S.

Looking back

Pride art show honors 50th anniversary of Stonewall riots

A

bout 27 years after the historic Stonewall riots in 1969, San Luis Obispo County celebrated Pride and its LGBTQ members for the first time officially as a community. This year, to honor the riots’ 50th anniversary, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Center Gallery is displaying A View from Stonewall, an exhibit featuring the photographs of gallery coordinator Lynn Schmidt in conjunction with the annual Central Coast Pride celebration. “It’s a remembrance,” Schmidt said. “A lot of people don’t understand what Stonewall is and why it’s important. It’s a time to pause and remember that we’ve only been doing this for 50 years and reflect where we’ve been.” Early in the morning of June 28, 1969, the LGBTQ community in Greenwich Village, New York, spontaneously rioted in reaction to police raids on the Stonewall Inn. Those riots marked

36 • New Times • July 4 - July 11, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

a turning point in the movement for civil rights for LGBTQ people in the U.S. From the Stonewall riots to the 1980s, when Schmidt came of age, to today, the photographer can see the progress that has been made in normalizing LGBTQ people. “It was very much ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and ‘yeah, that’s your roommate, OK,’” Schmidt said. To honor the people who were a part of Stonewall, Schmidt experimented with digitally altering and collaging her photos, a first for the LGBTQ artist. “I haven’t been too willing before to alter photos from their natural look,” Schmidt said. “I’m allowing myself to manipulate them and get out of my comfort zone.” While progress has been made in the past 50 years for the rights of LGBTQ people, Schmidt still has concerns about the community’s rights in America currently and in the future.

On display

A View from Stonewall, an exhibit featuring the work of photographer Lynn Schmidt, will be on display at the GALA Center Gallery in downtown SLO through July 25 in coordination with the annual Central Coast Pride celebration. An opening reception—with wine, appetizers, and a silent auction—will be held in conjunction with Art After Dark on July 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. For more information, visit galacc.org and slopride.com.

She listed concerns such as the high rates of homelessness and suicide among LGBTQ people. “I’m amazed at how far we’ve come,” Schmidt said. “I’m distressed by this current [presidential administration],” Schmidt said. “I don’t feel like we’re going back in the closet, but I think the civil liberties of vulnerable people in our community are being targeted.” The goal of the exhibit for Schmidt is to open people’s eyes to a key part of LGBTQ history. “I hope people find out a little tidbit that they didn’t know before and to think about where we’ve been before,” she said. “There were sacrifices and a tremendous amount of work that went into getting where we are today.” ∆ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley believes that love is love.

BY RYAH COOLEY PHOTOS COURTESY OF VANESSA VEIOCK

Photos on the go

OUT AND ABOUT Most of Vanessa Veiock’s photos are taken while she’s out for a run at spots like Terrace Hill.

Instinctive Curiosity, Intentional Connection art show displays mobile photography

V

anessa Veiock is a photographer with two expensive Nikon cameras gathering dust on a shelf. But she still takes photos, every day, just on her iPhone now. The switch began a few years back, when Veiock took a year off to do some traveling, taking just a backpack with her. “I had this inner debate,� she said. “I

had a really nice Nikon camera and an iPhone. I came to the conclusion that I didn’t want to take something I was going to worry about. I was traveling to be free.� Veiock’s first exhibition in 2015 featured iPhone photographs from more than 30 countries, linked together by small idiosyncrasies, encouraging viewers to get curious about the themes of interconnectedness and also make shareable personal connections to one another. Veiock, who just relocated to San Luis Obispo from the East Coast in July, now has another exhibit, Instinctive Curiosity, Intentional

On display

The Instinctive Curiosity, Intentional Connection art show, featuring the mobile photography of Vanessa Veiock, will be on display at Linnaea’s Cafe throughout the month of July with an opening reception during Art After Dark on July 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. LOCAL Photographer Vanessa Veiock relocated to the Central Coast from the East Coast in July and enjoys taking photos of local spots, like the cliffs at Pismo Beach.

Connection, featuring her mobile photography, on display at Linnaea’s Cafe in downtown SLO. As a new mom, Veiock most often takes photos when she’s out for runs in SLO, with her young son in tow. She uses her trusty iPhone 8 when she feels moved to stop and take a photo of scenic locales like the cliffs at Pismo Beach or at Terrace Hill. She usually doesn’t edit her photos unless it’s to adjust the brightness or contrast in the iPhone’s Photo app or in Instagram’s editing app. “I wanted to find beautiful things and I wanted my photos to be accessible,� Veiock said. “With how much Instagram has exploded, it left me wondering, what’s the point of a photograph anymore?� Through this exhibit, Veiock is looking to explore questions like: What gives a photograph power, purpose, or significance? And: How can we use technology, and furthermore, digital photography, to fuel more connection rather than isolation? She’s also interested in making art a collaborative, community experience, which is why Instinctive Curiosity, Intentional Connection was crowd funded, with a different sponsor covering the printing

costs of each photo for the show. Proceeds from art sold will go to Princeton philosopher Peter Singer’s The Life You Can Save, which aims to motivate the public to give to organizations that do the most good per dollar. “Everybody expects everything for free now,� Veiock said of art. “But it takes value away from everything. It was this idea of connecting with other people and getting a conversation going about what art they value.� ∆ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley is taking a selfie while hiking with her pit bulls.

anny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later…, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) directs this screenplay by Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Love Actually, War Horse) about Jack Malik (Himesh Patel), a struggling musician who awakes after a bicycle accident caused by a worldwide power outage to discover he’s the only person who remembers The Beatles’ music. Soon he’s considered the greatest singer-songwriter in the world, but will his newfound fame be a blessing or a curse? (116 min.)

For every struggling artist, it’s moral quandaries to spice it up. a feeling all too familiar. He loves to play, Anna Everyone knows a Jack—a talented singer-songwriter with a dream but his discouragement is palpable. He’s who’s destined to be small potatoes also blind to the fact that Ellie is smitten despite it all. He’s got a good group of with him. She’s funny as hell and teases friends; after all, they show up to gig him mercilessly when he awakes in the after gig to listen to his originals, but hospital following his accident, missing none are as devoted as Ellie. She drives two front teeth and his beloved beard him everywhere, hauls his PA, books shaved off.

Glen We’ve had something of a string of inspiring musical films—Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, and now this— and in Yesterday’s case, viewers don’t have to worry about whether the story got its facts right or if it’s watered down or sanitized. This is just easy-to-like, feel-good fun, and it makes good use of The Beatles’ music the same way Across the Universe (2007) did. It seems like these forays into pop music movies come in waves. Across the Universe was followed by Momma Mia! (2008) and its use of ABBA. The U.S. is a depressing place right now, and while Across the Universe and Momma Mia! distracted us from George W. Bush, this new trio has been a fun distraction from Donald J. Trump and his politics of division, family separation, and imprisoning foreign children. Yes, Yesterday is basically sitcom-level silliness and essentially a one-joke movie, but it’s a good joke and the film may be just the diversion we need right now. Don’t believe all the negative reviews from cynical critics. Instead, believe Rotten Tomatoes’ 90-percent audience score. This is a crowd pleaser! Anna Critics can be such downers sometimes! I had a ton of fun with this film, and yes, it’s a rom-com, but so what? The music is great, the premise is pretty original, and the writing is funny. I’m with the audience on this one—it’s a winner. Who doesn’t love and need a bit of distraction from the world at large? I have to tip my hat to McKinnon here; her Debra Hammer lives up to her name. She’s haughty and shallow and downright mean, but hilariously so. Her dreams of buying up the beachfront of Malibu all lie in Jack’s breakout album, and come hell or high water, she will see him succeed or kill him trying. It’s just a cute movie, and while it may not win any awards, it’s certainly earned a re-watch or two by me when it makes it to the small screen. I hopped on my phone right after watching and told my mom to make sure she and my dad caught it in the theater. If that doesn’t ring as a glowing endorsement, I don’t know what does.

Aladdin is ordered by Grand Vizier Jafar (Marwan Kenzari) to bring him a magical lamp, but Aladdin soon discovers the lamp, when rubbed, releases a genie (Will Smith), who grants the lamp bearer’s wishes.

ECHO IN THE CANYON

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? The Palm In his directorial debut, co-writer Andrew Slater (with co-writer Eric Barrett) helms this documentary examining the 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene and bands such as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas. Through a mix of archival footage and contemporary interviews, we discover how this seminal time in music history has informed contemporary artists such as Fiona Apple, Beck, Norah Jones, and Jakob Dylan. Both educational and entertaining, this doc is a must-see for anyone with even a passing interest in this fertile moment in rock history, when folk and rock were melded together. The period was rife with cross-pollination of sounds and ideas, as well as collaboration and competition. Did you know, for instance, that The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds (1966) inspired The Beatles to create Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)? The film is guided by Dylan, who conducts interview with the likes of producer Lou Adler, Jackson Browne, Eric

Meanwhile, Dylan has also enlisted a bevy of contemporary performers to re-create some of the classic songs that came out of the Laurel Canyon scene. Fiona Apple, Beck, Jade Castrinos (of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes), Norah Jones, Cat Power, and Regina Spektor are shown practicing the songs and later performing them in concert. And to spice up the proceedings and add vintage color, Slater also mixes in scenes from the 1969 film Model Shop, starring Anouk Aimée and Gary Lockwood, which Slater and Dylan explain helped spark their interest in the ’60s L.A. folk rock scene. You’ll hear some amazing stories and watch some terrific performances, both archival and contemporary as Dylan leads his cohorts in re-creating songs.

been fun. They show their age, make fun of it, and embrace it. Grace, who retired from the successful cosmetics company she started, and Frankie, a hippie who teaches ex-convicts how to paint, are forced into a shared life. As they try to figure out love; lust; how to get around with back problems; and work through their sometimes difficult relationships with one another, their kids, and their ex husbands, they start a vibrator company for older women with arthritis. It’s kind of amazing—and shocking—which makes this show all the better. Fonda and Tomlin have great chemistry, and have since they first appeared on-screen together with Dolly Parton nearly four decades ago in 9 to 5. Then, they played three secretaries who worked for a sexist boss they got revenge against. It’s a fun, feminist comedy. And the ladies do the same in Grace and Frankie: only it’s not just female empowerment they’re after. The show tackles ageism in a funny, irreverent way, and I for one, can’t get enough. Season 6 is coming soon, and who knows, Parton might even make an appearance. (5 seasons, 30-min. episodes) Δ —Camillia Lanham

THE MASTER The life and career of famed opera tenor Luciano Pavarotti (center) is explored in director Ron Howard’s new documentary, Pavarotti. PHOTO COURTESY OF BBC FILMS

SECRETS AND LIES A young film student named Julie (Honor Swinton Byrne, left) falls for an apparently well-to-do man named Anthony (Tom Burke), but as their relationship continues, she begins to realize he’s hiding something, in The Souvenir. Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10, Sunset Drive-In Josh Cooley directs this fourth feature in the Toy Story franchise. This time around, Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) must convince his toy pals to welcome a new addition, Forky (Tony Hale), into their fold, even though Forky is just a spork made into a toy in arts and crafts class by their child, Bonnie. When Bonnie’s family goes on a road trip, Forky takes off, so Woody and a few other toys go in search of him. The Forky stuff is just the tip of the iceberg though; there’s so much going on in this movie. And in my opinion, Forky gets upstaged by at least four other new characters. I’ll start with the villain, a 1950s pull-string doll named Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks), who Woody and Forky encounter in an antique store on their journey back to Bonnie. Just in case the creepy doll vibe isn’t already eerie enough, “Midnight, the Stars, and You”— you know, the ballroom song from The Shining—starts playing as Gabby Gabby

sits in a baby carriage, steered by her posse of demented ventriloquist dummies. I won’t reveal her insidious intentions, but as with most memorable villains, things aren’t so black and white. The film does a great job of exploring her side of the story, and we come to sympathize with Gabby Gabby’s plight, just not the means she uses to rectify it. Some other great new characters include a perfectly cast Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves), a Canadian daredevil action figure; and the duo of Ducky and Bunny (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, respectively), a couple of plush toys stuck on the prize rack at a carnival. Those three collectively deliver the best punchlines in the movie, hands down. But in all seriousness, the most badass character in the film is series veteran Bo Peep (Annie Potts), who gets a welldeserved return to the franchise. When I first heard Toy Story 4 was in the works, I felt betrayed and bewildered. Toy Story 3 had such a finality to it, why try to follow a nearly perfect ending to the series? So why keep going? Well, money of course! Little did I know Pixar’s more noble intentions for this installment, which surprisingly opens the door to countless more adventures—for some characters more than others. The final product isn’t the petty cashgrab I was expecting, and believe it or not, I actually enjoyed it even more than Toy Story 3. Fight me! Neither film is on par with 1 or 2 in my book, but wow does this one get pretty darn close. There’s a really genuine story here, which can’t be said of too many fourth entries in a series.

No frills

From the outside, Hana Teriyaki is as humble as you can get. But inside you get to eat home-inspired Korean dishes and American-Korean fusion. Hana Teriyaki is located at 1477 Creston Road, Paso Robles. Open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Give them a call at (805) 226-8581.

n case you had no way of knowing, we actually do have a Korean restaurant in Paso Robles. Many of us have little reason to drive beyond Paso Robles High School and Jamba Juice on Niblick Road, but I wanted you to understand that you should venture the full length of Niblick, for one reason and one reason only: Hana Teriyaki. People have been carrying plastic to-go food bags out of this hidden gem steadily for eight whole years now. I know that Hana Teriyaki sounds Hawaiian or Japanese. But it’s not! I feel a bit miffed. It seems people were holding out on us. I happened upon the place in an internet search for something entirely different (perhaps relaxing images of Hana, Maui) and learned my poor taste buds were missing out! When I went, I saw all of the people who already knew. Construction workers in their dusty jeans taking a salty breather on their lunch break; college kids coming in and out, paying in quarters and crumpled dollar bills for bags of Korean food to-go; commuters stopping in for a breakfast burrito and a coffee; and chicken udon noodle soup-loving children sitting with

their families, filling up the wooden chairs of the small, seven-table room. Even Camp Roberts soldiers were dutifully patronizing Hana in their fatigues. Well, the bottom of the lamp is dark, as the Korean proverb goes. But now I can see the light: Hana Teriyaki has authentic Korean dishes like beef barbecue ribs and kimchi soup. They serve vegetarian eggrolls and pork-filled potstickers. But Hana doesn’t stop at Korean dishes. On the menu is a whole section of sandwiches and burgers known as burwiches, including an Asian-style version of a Philly cheesesteak sandwich with a splash of teriyaki. Korean couple and owners, Hana and Park, team up on the cooking, one of their two daughters runs the register and helps steer you through the unending, diverse menu. Hana herself comes out of the kitchen wearing a little white apron. She is undeniably sweet and friendly. Thoughtful chotchkies are all around Hana’s place: Next to a work desk, a bookshelf that looks like it came straight from the living room holds porcelain keepsakes, teapots, plushies, and books. I’m not going to pretend I know anything about Korean food. The only Korean dish I attempt in my kitchen is literally called “Cheater Korean Beef.” I had no Korean buddies inviting me over to dinner as a kid growing up in the East Bay. I just don’t get enough exposure. With this limited access to Korean food, I figure the best way to go is to order the most traditional dish on the menu. Of course, my sons are a little different. They are magnetically drawn to anything teriyaki. So two of my three sons ordered the teriyaki beef. The savory Hana Teriyaki is a rather large portion, served with rice on a big white plate. My son Tony was sweating over choosing heat level “medium” from a choice of five heat levels. “Hurts so good!” he kept saying, mixing in enormous straw pulls from his iced green tea between bites. He’s

SHOULD BE YOUR CHOICE TONIGHT Hana Teriyaki makes the best sweet and spicy bulgogi you will ever eat. The dish comes with rice and your choice of salad or kimchi.

46 • New Times • July 4 - July 11, 2019 • www.newtimesslo.com

SAVORY TERIYAKI The scent of plain white rice, fresh, garlic-soaked vegetables, and spicy meat fills the air inside Hana, as if coming from a small street food tent on a busy street in South Korea. Here my son was so eager to eat the Beef Teriyaki, he dipped his chopsticks into the beef before I could snap a picture. DECISIONS, DECISIONS Owners Hana and Park don’t stop at just Korean fare. On the menu are fresh stir-fry noodle dishes and fried rice plates, pork and chicken rice plates, and teriyaki plates made with any kind of meat or seafood. The teriyaki plates are extremely popular with their customers, and popular breakfast items like pancake combos and breakfast sandwiches are served until 11:30 a.m.

still talking about how he wants to go back for more. I ordered the bulgogi (bool-GOH-gee) because I wanted to upstage my own Cheater Korean Beef. You can get it with kimchi or salad. I went with the salad in the sesame dressing. Apparently, Hana makes fresh batches of kimchi on a weekly to biweekly basis. Bring in your own jar for a 50-cent discount! Half jars go for $8 and full jars go for $15. My order of bulgogi was so huge, I shared it with my son. The thinly sliced, juicy-textured, pan-roasted steak, which originated from the Pyongan Province of the Korean Peninsula, was marinated in a sweet, almost caramelized, nutty blend of soy, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil. Park smiled and bowed, placing the griddle of steak in the center of the table, with Korean rice and iceberg salad on a separate plate. Another authentic dish to try is the Dolsot (hot stone) Bibimbap (BEE-bimbap). The term “bibim” means mixing different ingredients, while the “bap” refers to the rice part, but basically Dosot Bibimbap is a warm hot stone bowl FLAVOR continued page 48

HIDDEN GEM Hana Teriyaki is sandwiched between Mr. Pickles and a day spa in a Paso Robles strip mall, and if you are crafty enough to find it, you’ll never be lost from thinly sliced, tender, flavor-packed meat again.

D INE ’N’ DISH Siete ‘Fuego’ Grain Free Tortilla Chips

We are in the age of allergies and food intolerances, whether we like it or not. It’s so hard to be a culinary angel. From cheddar cheese Bugles to Sour Patch Kids, almost everyone has their nemesis food—that junk food, bad-for-you item that makes you feel like you’ve committed a crime after finishing the bag. Comedian Jim Gaffigan said he’d rather admit he’s “meeting a hooker” at McDonald’s than ordering McDonald’s fries. Then he goes on to say we all have our “McDonald’s fries.” It might take an intervention to lure someone away from their People magazine of food. Which brings me to the alternative to Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos: a breakthrough, amazingly flavorful, chip I recently discovered at Harvest Natural Foods. You eat them, and your body won’t hate you afterward. Dairy-free, grain-free, paleo, and vegan, these habanero and chili-flavored chips are made with avocado oil and only good-for-you ingredients. These Doritos replacements were created by a MexicanAmerican woman from Texas who wanted her granddaughter with an autoimmune condition to be able to eat her favorite foods with the rest of the family. Siete also makes cassava tortillas, but I’ll save that miracle for another day. I’ve seen Siete chips on the shelves at Harvest Naturals, 6985 San Luis Ave., Atascadero, and Sprouts, 313 Madonna Road, SLO. Where have you spotted them? ∆ New Times food writer Beth Giuffre can’t get enough Doritos. Send your favorite nibbles to bgiuffre@newtimesslo.com.

NO BONES ABOUT IT, WHEN IT COMES TO PRINT CIRCULATION,

GO WITH THE TOP DOG.

for the week of July 4

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: “Know thyself—or else! Follow your dreams—or else!” Please comment. Truthrooster@gmail.com. ARIES (March 21-April 19): When the universe began 13.8 billion years ago, there were only four elements: mostly hydrogen and helium, plus tiny amounts of lithium and beryllium. Now there are 118 elements, including five that are key components of your body: oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. All of those were created by nuclear reactions blazing on the insides of stars that later died. So it’s literally true to say that much of your flesh and blood and bones and nerves originated at the hearts of stars. I invite you to meditate on that amazing fact. It’s a favorable time to muse on your origins and your ancestry; to ruminate about all the events that led to you being here today—including more recent decades, as well as the past 13.8 billion years.

TAURUS

(us)

35,000 18,000

(April 20-May 20): Most American women couldn’t vote until a hundred years ago. Women in Japan, France, and Italy couldn’t vote until the 1940s. Universal suffrage has been a fundamental change in how society is structured. Similarly, same-sex marriage was opposed by vast majorities in most countries until 15 years ago, but has since become widely accepted. African American slavery lasted for hundreds of years before being delegitimized all over the Western world in the 19th century. Brazil, which hosted 40 percent of all kidnapped Africans, didn’t free its slaves until 1888. What would be the equivalent of such revolutionary transformations in your own personal life? According to my reading of the astrological omens, you have the power to make that happen during the next 12 months.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini musician Paul Weller is famous in the UK, though not so much elsewhere. According to the BBC, he is one of Britain’s “most revered music writers and performers.” To which I say: revered, maybe, but mentally healthy? Not so much. He bragged that he broke up his marriage with his wife Dee C. Lee because “things were going too well, we were too happy, too comfortable, everything seemed too nice.” He was afraid that “as a writer and an artist I might lose my edge.” Don’t you dare allow yourself to get infected with that perverse way of thinking, my dear Gemini. Please capitalize on your current comfort and happiness. Use them to build your strength and resilience for the months and years to come.

(June 21-July 22): Cancerian voice actor Tom Kenny has played the roles of more than 1,500 cartoon characters, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Spyro the Dragon, Jake Spidermonkey, Commander Peepers, and Doctor Octopus. I propose that we make him your role model in the coming weeks. It will be a favorable time for you to show your versatility; to demonstrate how multifaceted you can be; to express various sides of your soulful personality.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo author Donald Miller reminds us that fear can have two very different purposes. On the one hand, it may be “a guide to keep us safe,” alerting us to situations that could be dangerous or abusive. On the other hand, fear may work as “a manipulative emotion that can trick us into living a boring life.” After studying your astrological indicators for the coming weeks, Leo, I have come to the conclusion that fear may serve both of those functions for you. Your challenge will be to discern between them; to know which situations are genuinely risky and which situations are daunting but promising. Here’s a hint that might help: trust your gut feelings more than your swirling fantasies.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Why do flocks of geese fly in a V-formation? Because to do so enhances the collective efficiency of their travel. Each bird generates a current that supports the bird behind it. Let’s make this phenomenon one of your power metaphors for the coming weeks. What would be the equivalent strategy for you and your tribe or group as you seek to make your collaborative efforts more dynamic

and productive? Unforeseen help will augment any actions you take in this regard.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue,” mused Libra author Truman Capote. “That’s why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.” That cynical formulation has more than a few grains of truth in it, I must admit. But I’m pleased to tell you that I suspect your experience in the coming weeks will be an exception to Capote’s rule. I think you have the potential to embark on a virtual binge of rich discussion and intriguing interplay with people who stimulate and educate and entertain you. Rise to the challenge!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In accordance with astrological rhythms, you are authorized to make the following declarations in the next two weeks: 1. “I refuse to participate further in this situation on the grounds that it might impinge on the expansiveness of my imagination.” 2. “I abstain from dealing with your skepticism on the grounds that doing so might discourage the flights of my imagination.” 3. “I reject these ideas, theories, and beliefs on the grounds that they might pinch, squash, or deflate my imagination.” What I’m trying to tell you, Scorpio, is that it’s crucial for you to emancipate your imagination and authorize it to play uninhibitedly in the frontiers of possibilities.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dear Sagittarius: I invite you to make a copy of the testimonial below and give it to anyone who is in a position to support your Noble Experiment. “To Whom It May Concern: I endorse this Soulful Sagittarius for the roles of monster-tamer, fun-locator, boredom-transcender, elation-inciter, and mountaintop visionary. This adroit explorer is endowed with charming zeal, disarming candor, and abundant generosity. If you need help in sparking your enthusiasm or galvanizing your drive to see the big picture, call on the expansive skills of this jaunty puzzle-solver.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Life will conspire to bring you a surge of love in the coming weeks—if you can handle it. Can you? Will you be able to deal adeptly with rumbling love and icy hot love and mostly sweet but also a bit sour love? Do you possess the resourcefulness and curiosity necessary to have fun with funny spiritual love and running-throughthe-labyrinth love and unexpectedly catalytic love? Are you open-minded and open-hearted enough to make the most of brilliant shadowy love and unruly sensitive love and toughly graceful love?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I don’t endlessly champion the “no pain, no gain” theory of personal growth. My philosophy holds that we are at least as likely to learn valuable lessons from pleasurable and joyful experiences as we are from difficult and taxing struggles. Having said that, I also think it’s true that our suffering may lead us to treasure if we know how to work with it. According to my assessment, the coming weeks will bring one such opening for you. To help you cultivate the proper spirit, keep in mind the teaching of Aquarian theologian and author Henri Nouwen. He said that life’s gifts may be “hidden in the places that hurt most.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The Japanese word “wabi-sabi” refers to an interesting or evocative imperfection in a work of art that makes it more beautiful than if it were merely perfect. “Duende” is a Spanish word referring to a work of art that gives its viewers the chills because it’s so emotionally rich and unpredictably soulful. In the coming weeks, I think that you yourself will be a work of art with an abundance of these qualities. Your wabi-sabi will give you the power to free yourself from the oppressive pressures of seeking too much precision and purity. Your duende can give you the courage you need to go further than you’ve ever dared in your quest for the love you really want. ∆
