SLO, Santa Maria join nationwide protests against Trump’s immigration policies

M

ore than 1,500 people marched through downtown San Luis Obispo on June 30 as part of the nationwide “Families Belong Together” protest. The rally and march was organized in response to the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, which separated undocumented children from their parents when caught crossing the southern border. According to national news reports, more than 2,000 of those children are currently in detention facilities and it’s unclear when or how they will be reunited with their families. “You don’t need to be a parent to know children belong with their parents,” said Matt West, a father of four from Atascadero who drove down to attend the march. “But it makes it more heartbreaking as a parent to imagine them taking my child away for no reason and not caring enough to reunite us.” After gathering in front of the SLO County courthouse and listening to several speakers, the crowd moved out, looping around Monterey and Chorro streets. Passing cars honked in support, garnering cheers from protesters. Organizers said the event was coordinated in a week, so they were unable to get a permit to march in the street, forcing the crowd onto the sidewalks. Event organizer Alex Lancaster told New Times that she first heard of the Families Belong Together protest while at work. When she saw the closest protest was in Ventura, she decided to organize one in SLO. “I want to emphasize that anyone can do this, organize or lead an event. We can do so much better than just yell at each other on the internet,” Lancaster said. The Women’s March SLO helped promote the event for Lancaster. Women’s March SLO cofounder Dawn Addis said she was pleased with the turnout, but not surprised.

“SLO has shown its passion for truth and justice this last year and a half. To have so many people show up for immigrants shows the heart and soul of who we are,” Addis said. The protest in SLO was one of hundreds of similar events taking place across the country. In Santa Maria, a crowd of about 200 people gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility on McCoy Lane.

Water banking ballot initiative dropped

San Luis Obispo County voters won’t get to decide in November whether to enact a ban on exporting groundwater outside of local aquifers. Backers of the ballot initiative dropped a push to collect the 8,580 signatures needed to qualify the measure for the election, opting to hold the campaign for a future election cycle, according to proponent and Creston resident Greg Grewal. Grewal told New Times that organizers had collected about 3,500 signatures for the initiative, but they decided recently to table it to simplify the ordinance language and build a broader coalition of support from residents and agriculturalists countywide. “It was easier to do that and get everybody else’s support,” Grewal said. The proposed “SLO County Groundwater Protection Ordinance” aimed to prohibit moving groundwater outside of the boundaries of the basin it originated from and prevent local agencies from issuing any water export permits. Concerns about groundwater exports or sales—also called water banking—stem from the contentious politics over the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin, a 780 square-mile aquifer

serving agriculturalists and landowners in North County. When the last major drought cycle parched the Paso basin, prominent farmers and viticulturists in North County joined forces in 2013 to pursue forming a water district. In response, some residents in the area peddled theories that those stakeholders planned to bank and sell groundwater out of the basin— including one of the region’s elected officials, 5th District SLO County Supervisor Debbie Arnold. Grewal believes that’s still the intention of the two water districts that recently formed over the basin—the Shandon-San Juan Water District and Estrella-El Pomar-Creston (EPC) Water District. “They do want to wheel and bank and sell water,” Grewal said. Water district officials have repeatedly denied that allegation and continued to after the ballot initiative fizzled out. They say their intention is to find solutions that can bring sustainability to a basin that’s designated by the state as “high priority” and in a “critical state of overdraft.” “I don’t know of any activity on that issue,” Dana Merrill, president of the EPC Water District and owner of Mesa Vineyard NEWS continued page 6

News NEWS from page 4

Management, said in an email to New Times. “In my opinion, there never was any interest in exporting and not much in banking.” Some safeguards against water exporting already exist in SLO County. A county ordinance requires that any groundwater export plans receive a discretionary permit. In addition, the formations of both water districts were approved under the condition that they do not export water. Merrill suggested that the debate over water banking is more nuanced than some may think. As farmers and government officials across California grapple with new laws and mandates for groundwater sustainability planning, some water agencies are experimenting with solutions. The Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency in Ventura County recently opened a groundwater market where farmers can sell their surplus groundwater to other farmers in the region according to a report by Water Deeply. The market is designed to incentivize the conservative and efficient use of groundwater. “They have annual crops still that are irrigated, which are more flexible than vineyards, so it may not work here,” Merrill said. “There will likely be opposition to any new concepts, of course.” —Peter Johnson

Oceano denies special fire tax

The Oceano Community Services District opted not to put a special fire tax on the November ballot. At the June 27 meeting, General Manager Paavo Ogren said the district is committed to the Five Cities Fire Authority joint agreement for 2018-19 fiscal year, but the fate of the joint service beyond that is unknown. The proposed tax would have helped fund Oceano’s portion of the Fire Authority’s cost beyond its current two-year agreement. “The primary thing is the Five Cities Fire Authority negotiations and the county strategic planning efforts won’t be concluded until after November. The conventional wisdom is that if we go out for a tax election, it’s really important to show individuals in the community what the dollar amount is and what the services are that they are going to get, or what the alternatives are if the special tax measure doesn’t get approved by the voters,” he said. Ogren said the district would be hardpressed to give definite answers, but he said that Oceano will not be able to fund its portion for the Fire Authority in the projected five-year strategic plan that the authority created. Oceano CSD board of directors President Karen White told New Times that the district just doesn’t know enough yet to make a decision, but the community has secured fire services until it has more information. “Until we can narrow it down, we have in the budget funding for the fire department—it’s a little tight on our budget, but it’s there,” White said. In 2010, Oceano, Arroyo Grande, and Grover Beach adopted the joint fire service. The three communities recently agreed to work on amending the joint powers agreement to negotiate its future

VIEWER DISCRETION by Jayson Mellom terms. According to the agreement for the 2018-19 fiscal year, Arroyo Grande will pay $2.5 million, Grover Beach will contribute $1.8 million, and Oceano will put forth $987,362. The communities have until April 1, 2019, to unanimously agree on efforts to amend the joint powers agreement. The current agreement ends on Dec. 31, 2019. —Karen Garcia

Tiny homes could be allowed in SLO backyards

In an effort to boost its affordable housing supply, San Luis Obispo may start allowing “tiny homes” to establish in residential backyards as part of a city zoning code overhaul. Tiny homes on wheels—categorized by the state as RVs—are currently not allowed on residential property for longer than seven days, per city regulations. A recent push by the SLO City Council to accommodate the experimental housing model may change that. In the most recent draft of the new zoning regulations, “moveable tiny houses” are considered accessory dwelling units (ADUs) that can be permitted “off-grid”— meaning, without separate utility meters. Tiny houses can be a maximum size of 450 square-feet, and must have at minimum 100 square-feet of first-floor living space, according to the draft. Property owners or renters interested in installing a tiny home could obtain a lowlevel building permit from the city. “It’s the cheapest permit we have,” said Doug Davidson, deputy director of the SLO Community Development Department. While tiny houses wouldn’t be required to hook up separately to city utilities, they’d still need proof of “adequate, safe, and sanitary utility systems providing water, sewer, heating, cooling, and electric power.” Since they’re considered RVs by the state, when two or more mobile tiny houses exist on one lot they then constitute a “park,” according to city officials. Because of that, only one tiny home would be allowed per parcel. SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon, who’s advocated and campaigned in favor of tiny-home-friendly policies, told New Times she was “excited” to see the zoning change. “This is something I promised people I’d do my best to make come to life,” Harmon said. “I think this is a really good start. ... Where it’s appropriate, they’re going to be great. I can see this policy potentially expanding.” The SLO Planning Commission signed off on the bulk of the zoning regulations on June 27, and the City Council will make a final decision on the code at a meeting on Aug. 21. —Peter Johnson

Cannabis ballot question a no-go in Arroyo Grande

Arroyo Grande voters won’t get the chance to sound off on how they feel about commercial cannabis in their city when they go to the ballot box in November. Members of the Arroyo Grande City Council declined to vote in favor of placing a non-binding question on the ballot to gauge attitudes about commercial marijuana businesses, citing a tightening

6 • New Times • July 5 - July 12, 2018 • www.newtimesslo.com

deadline to develop and approve the measure’s wording in order to get it before voters in time. “The timeline is way too tight, and I feel like we’d be rushing,” Councilmember Kristen Barneich said at a June 26 meeting. California allows cities and counties to place non-binding questions, called advisory measures, on ballots to gauge public opinion on important community issues. That includes how they feel about commercial cannabis. The ballot measure questions must be no longer than 75 words, and must include an impartial analysis from the city attorney, as well as arguments for and against the issue. California cities including Albany and Weed, as well as the counties of Sierra and Inyo, have authored cannabis-related advisory measures in the past. City Manager Jim Bergman said the council could place such a question on the November ballot, but the deadline for submitting the question to the SLO County Clerk’s office is Aug. 10. The city would still need time to develop the impartial analysis, field arguments for and against, and hold a public review period. In order to do that, the council would need to hold at least two more meetings in July to meet the deadline. “Time is of the essence with something like this,” he said. That tight window is the reason many of the council members declined to vote to move the measure forward. That included Mayor Pro-Tem Caren Ray, who originally asked to explore a commercial cannabis advisory measure at a June 12 meeting. “I don’t think we can do this in a reasonable amount of time,” Ray said. “I don’t think we have the time to be careful and correct.” Still, Ray added that she’d still like to be able to measure residents’ feelings on the issue at some point. Bergman said that the city still had other methods to gauge public sentiment on the issue, such as public workshops, surveys, or hiring an outside firm to conduct a poll. Consideration of the measure comes after the council voted 3-2, with Ray and Mayor Jim Hill dissenting, to get rid of its local permitting regulations for commercial medical marijuana delivery services. That vote came after a conflict between state and local regulations led to the city’s lone delivery business, Elite Care Industries, losing its state license to operate. The city now wants to allow any delivery service licensed by the state to operate in Arroyo Grande. But the changes still need to be approved by the city’s Planning Commission and go back before the council for a second vote. Even then, it would take another 30 days to go into effect. That means the new regulations won’t take effect for at least another two or three months, leaving patients to either travel to nearby Grover Beach or find delivery services willing to travel to the city even though they are technically not permitted to operate there. “Some of our residents don’t have that much time,” Hill said at that June 26 meeting, alluding to terminally ill patients in the city. —Chris McGuinness

Diablo Canyon mitigation bill moves through Legislature

A bill to restore nearly $225 million in funds to mitigate the impacts of Diablo Canyon Power Plant’s planned closure is clearing important hurdles in the state Legislature, passing off the Senate floor on May 29 and clearing the Assembly Utilities and Energy Committee on June 27. Senate Bill 1090, co-authored by Sen. Bill Monning (D-Carmel) and Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R-SLO), aims to reverse a decision made by the California Public Utilities Commission earlier this year to nix an $85 million settlement for SLO County schools and agencies impacted by Diablo’s shutdown and cut in half funding for a plant employee retention program. The bill, which is backed by PG&E and its labor unions, would restore the funding for both programs via PG&E ratepayers. “SB 1090 ensures that Diablo Canyon operates safely and reliably for the remainder of its license period, and provides a bridge of predictability and security of the greater SLO region,” Monning said in a press release. “I am grateful that the Utilities and Energy committee passed the bill on a bipartisan vote and will continue to work hard to see it become law,” Cunningham added. The bill will move to the Assembly Committee on Appropriations next. PG&E plans to shutter Diablo Canyon in 2024 and 2025. —Peter Johnson

Corrections

• In the June 28 news brief, “Atascadero voters to decide on mayoral term length, again,” it was incorrectly implied that a new mayoral term length would take effect after the 2018 election. The term length will not take effect until after the 2020 election. • In last week’s Street Talk, Brian Erickson’s Facebook post was inadvertently misprinted. Erickson actually wrote, “Government bureaucracy is screwing things up? You don’t say!” in response to the June 21 new story, “Cannabis application process ‘a war’ in SLO County, industry reps say.” Δ

DOING WHAT YOU LOVE Kristen Hazard, CEO of Wildnote, has created a company and a team of people who enjoy working together and collaborating with clients who love their KAREN work. BY GARCIA

Digitally capturing nature

J

une 15 marked the apex of the nonprofit group Outdoor Afro’s climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro. At 19,340 feet, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. The climbers tackling the expedition are members of an Oakland-based national nonprofit organization that celebrates and inspires African-American connections and leadership in nature. To record their journey, the group used a digital platform on their mobile devices created by Wildnote, a San Luis Obispobased company. Wildnote CEO Kristen Hazard said this cloud-based application is really focused on environmental consultants, regulatory agencies, cultural resource management firms, academia, and other industries that require data collection. “We have really focused on biologists and botanists. It’s ecological restoration, and it’s a very niche environmental focused app,” Hazard said. The application can be accessed from any mobile device such as a tablet or a cellphone. Consulting firms have the power to create their own personalized document to collect data with. The app features tools such as voice texting, photo taking, longitude and latitude tagging, the ability to use the application offline, and the ability to download all the information collected into a formatted PDF file. All the information collected on-site is placed in one document ready to be synced when the user is back in a WiFi zone. Currently, Wildnote has 242 subscribers from 15 different companies that utilize the online tool. This company is something that Hazard didn’t see herself creating years ago, although even as a child, she explained, she knew she loved nature. Fast-forward to 2010 and Hazard built a consulting firm in San Luis Obispo because she loved the area and wanted to live here. Four years later, she partnered with Terra Verde Environmental Consulting to build an environmentalcompliance reporting app for PG&E. “The project was so successful with PG&E that I realized, well, I can build a generalized app for not just PG&E but for all biologists, botanists, natural resource managers, all people who go out in the field, and that’s how Wildnote was born,” she said.

The company ties together two things that Hazard really enjoys: nature and eccentric people. When she was running her consulting company in 2010, she was also studying entrepreneurship. She heard a piece of advice that she took to heart: Build a product for people you want to hang out with. “I really like the biologists, the desert tortoise people, the moth people. They’re super smart, super kooky, they love nature, and they love what they do,” Hazard said. The interesting thing that Hazard and her team have encountered is that many businesses are still wrapping their heads around taking away the pencil-to-paper concept when collecting data out in the field. Brandon Jones, who’s in charge of business development for Wildnote, said the digital age isn’t stopping, and when it comes to data collecting, it’s more efficient to use a tool like theirs. “It’s the same with digital technology and with our environment niche. These companies have to adapt. If they don’t adapt they won’t be competitive. They’ll be left behind because this is all about the bidding process. These companies have to bid for work, so they have to be efficient,” Jones said. To learn more about the application or Wildnote visit wildnoteapp.com.

Fast fact

The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo presented 14 local high school graduates with scholarships to support their future academic endeavors. The scholarships totaled $36,000 awarded to local students. The goal of the Rotary Club’s scholarship program is to help students focus less on financial challenges and more on advancing their learning. Recipients were graduates from San Luis Obispo High School, Pacific Beach High School, and SLO County Independent Living Program. The scholarship program is made possible because of the fundraising efforts of club members and the generosity of the community.

Commentary

BY BOB CUDDY

Pick your side We face a moral test, not a political one

T

he people I’d like to talk to about our government’s child abuse and kidnaping at the southern border are the men and women on the ground who actually do the dirty work. I don’t mean the powerful people in Washington who have made this barbarity happen. They are, by their own design, far removed from the carnage, as are the chattering classes who jabber endlessly on the tube about children being ripped from their mothers’ arms. No, the people I want to hear from are the human beings who take children away. As they snatch a shrieking youngster, do they say to themselves, “Best if I grab her under the arms to give me greater control as she screams and squirms”? What about the partner: Does he ask himself how best to restrain the hysterical mother? Maybe both arms around the body would be best, he might be thinking. Do they stop for a moment to consider what they are doing? Here’s what I’m wondering: How can they do that? I couldn’t do that. Could you do that? Pluck a dread-filled child forcefully from its mother’s arms? Do these men and women go home at night to their own children? How can they look at them? I always have wondered how good people can do horrific things. I usually go back to the guy in Herman Melville’s

HODIN

The Confidence Man, who tells a hesitant, soul-searching compatriot whom he has asked to do something scurrilous: “Don’t be so honest; your boy is barefoot.” Or I remember cartoonist Jules Pfeiffer’s I’m Just Doing My Job Club, which described people who were hired to do something awful and didn’t stop to consider whether they were acting morally. Between them, those two motivations— earning a paycheck and not questioning orders—have caused most of modern man’s most abhorrent behavior. The guy who turned the gas on at Auschwitz, the guards who ran Manzanar and other concentration camps imprisoning

their loved ones, upside down? I think there is. I’m not alone in that. That takes us to Judge Robert Brack. Since 2003, working out of a courtroom in rural southern New Mexico, Brack has sentenced thousands of immigrants, most in this country without proper documentation, who had been found guilty of minor infractions. Most, he told the Los Angeles Times, were “hardworking, gentle, uneducated, and completely lacking in criminal history.” But his job was to sentence them, and so he did. Until this year. Brack resigned. He told the LA Times in May, “I have presided over a process that destroys families for a long time, and I am weary of it.” Judge Brack, at long last, reached the point where his conscience told him, “Enough!” He arrived at that crossroads

He arrived at that crossroads where what is legal and what is moral parted company, and he took the less-traveled road marked “Moral.” Japanese-American citizens during World War II. Doing a job we may not like in order to keep a roof over the family’s head and food on the table is something we all know about. We all have to eat some excrement on the job, as the saying goes. I certainly did. But nobody ever asked me to harm a terrified baby, to hurt it in a way that will leave scars for the rest of that child’s life. So, here’s the question: Is there a line that decent people should not cross? Even if it means losing their job? Even if it might turn their lives, and the lives of

where what is legal and what is moral parted company, and he took the lesstraveled road marked “Moral.” He’s not the only one. There are people among those doing the U.S. oligarchy’s dirty work at the border who are urging their fellow agents to disobey repugnant orders that destroy children and families. And others sloshing through the rancid belly of the federal beast are also saying, “Ya basta!” “Enough!” One example among a growing number: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman James Schwab left his job because ICE sanctioned lying to the

American public about a raid. “It’s a flat-out lie,” Schwab said of the statement that came from Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions. “They [ICE] know it’s a lie,” Schwab told CBS News. “It was just shocking to me that no one wanted to fix that.” “I could not fathom staying at an organization that was OK with lying to the American public,” he said. Schwab came to that same fork in the road where Brack made his choice. So must those agents prying children from their mothers, and so must we all. In the United States now, it’s about right and wrong. It’s about decency, not politics, not left or right, not “who we are as a nation” (that ubiquitous question). We are being tasked to answer a question far more fundamental, and important: who each of us is as a human being. We all will have the opportunity to decide, each in our own particular context, most far less dramatic than the excruciating test being faced by the men and women at the border. It’s easy to despair as we see our values being shredded. Here are some words from historian Howard Zinn that might help. “To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic, it is based on the fact that human history is a history of not only cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.” I know which side of history I want to be on.

Opinion Outrageous!

I hate to burst your bubble, Gary Wechter (“Trump supporters not welcome,” June 28), but there are many businesses that I and others already refuse to support based on their political affiliation. This is not a “new approach.” In our democratic society, we are free to choose where we want to spend our time and money, and people have been doing this for years. Also, I wouldn’t quite describe Sarah Huckabee Sanders and others in the Trump administration as public servants. This administration is doing terrible things to the public. Heaven forbid that Kirstjen Nielsen is heckled or a restaurant owner should refuse service to someone like Sarah. And heaven forbid that football players should kneel to protest racial discrimination or that an elected official should say a few cuss words. What in the world is this world coming to? So low, so uncivil, so scary! Just imagine if Americans voted and/ or supported a president who is a chronic liar, cheat, racist, misogynist/selfprofessed sexual assaulter/accused rapist, and thug (the list will grow longer, I am sure). Imagine if black people (no need for identifying letters) were arrested, incarcerated, and killed by police at a much higher rate than other people. Imagine if black public officials received death/lynching threats. Imagine if people were discriminated against, bullied, beaten, and murdered just because of their sexual orientation/identity. Imagine if the government cut services to the poor only to give huge tax breaks to the rich. Imagine if our government separated desperate immigrant parents and their children in the most inhumane way with no plans on how to reunite them. Imagine if our government banned entire groups of people, based on their religion, from entering our country. Imagine if our government tried to take away a woman’s reproductive rights. Imagine if our president cozied up to the world’s cruelest dictators. Imagine if this president’s election team, and undoubtedly, he himself, colluded with Putin and his Russian oligarchs (murderers and thieves) to get elected. Imagine if our elected representatives, sworn to uphold the Constitution, tried to interfere with the Department of Justice’s quest to seek the truth in this matter. Imagine if Trump’s self-professed patriotic supporters turned a blind eye to all of this or actually supported it all. Just imagine! Wouldn’t that be something? Gary: May the laws of karma serve you up a multitude of loogie-infused meals (figuratively speaking, of course, for the sake of civility) followed by your just deserts. Bon appetit!

Now that there is a vacancy in the Supreme Court of the United States, Americans and U.S. senators should be reminded that there is still a nomination for the Supreme Court that was never appropriately dealt with. Now is the time for Americans and senators to stand behind the nomination of Merrick Garland to be our next Supreme Court justice. Merrick Garland would be a superior nominee to any nominee that the current president would nominate.

Morro Bay is realizing a vision

Picturing Morro Bay’s future just got a little clearer. The foundation for municipal permanence is closer to reality. I support President Donald Trump’s desire to improve our nation’s infrastructure, and I support the city’s plan to strengthen our local infrastructure. Indeed, federal aid will be used here in our town to bring clean water and jobs. The payoff is powerful. We will experience the water security upon which we can improve our precious coastal gem. Can you picture more of us getting on board with our own contributions, using rainwater harvesting and permeable paving, for example? What about enhancing our designation as Tree City USA and planting more trees? Look what our residents and our vibrant volunteers have accomplished already. Public spaces are being beautified. We have changed our ways in regard to our own homes. You are not likely to see a person in Morro Bay hosing off their driveway. And look at all the beautiful home gardens here with little or no thirsty lawns or shrubs. Talk about civic pride! Everyone I know—all my acquaintances, tourists, out-of-town visitors—we all want to live in Morro Bay. I feel fortunate beyond belief. We will no longer have to think about the dire portrait of fresh-waterdeprived terrain. We will be able point out the Water Reclamation Facility on Highway 1 as proof of our community integrity. It will stoke our feeling of stewardship for the place we are so lucky to live in. And to picture that is going to be a vision realized. Carol Swain Morro Bay

Stick to city policy!

I was shocked, but not surprised, to see the proposal from “an international real estate company” for a six-story building at Chorro and Marsh. Three stories for 55 apartments, one floor for retail, two stories of office space, and only 60 parking spots?! Would these apartments even be reserved for people who already live or work in SLO, or marketed to the LETTERS continued page 11


Opinion LETTERS from page 10

developers’ “international” clientele? Please, San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon, Community Development Director Michael Codron, City Council, and the Planning Department: Stop allowing outside interests to get density and height variances, and stop approving massive blocky buildings that obliterate hillside views. Restrict buildings to 50feet tall, or four stories maximum, as is city policy, and stop making exceptions, as in this project, which would be “30 percent denser than what’s allowed typically.” Just say no. Patti Everett Templeton

Trump supporters drank the golden Kool-Aid This is a response to anyone who thinks that those who oppose Trump should not be welcome within business establishments or anywhere. I will be civil because Republicans are now demanding civility. (Ironically, I’ve always strived to be civil but have been accused of sounding “politically correct,” a derogatory euphemism which I equate with civility.) I prefer the company and business establishments of people who support the Constitution of the United States and who uphold truth and decency. I trust them more!

Ultimate Discover the

Trump’s businesses go bankrupt, as do his morals. My description of a Trump supporter is a person who cares so little for the truth, he/she willingly and blindly accepts Trump’s myriad, daily, allencompassing lies, which get repeated so much they become accepted as “truth.” (Trump even lied to Forbes to get on the Forbes 400 list.) I won’t go into detail, because my position is easily supported by many online fact-checking sites, such as Politifact. I’ve included only one here, but the list is staggering, and some of his lies are dangerous to America’s national security. Trump supporters, you’ve been conned. It should be at the top of all our bucket lists to live again in a constitutional democracy. A summit with our country’s deadliest adversary, Putin? Seriously? If you think this is OK, truly, you’ve drunk from Trump’s “Golden Showers.” Mary Donnelly San Luis Obispo

Look behind the green door

A

favorite movie of millions is The Wizard of Oz. The magic dissipated when Frank Morgan’s character the Wizard was revealed to be a fraud, exposed by Dorothy’s dog Toto, who pulled back the curtain of his throne room to reveal the theatrical illusions used to impress the locals. Where is Toto when we really need him? I speak of Measure G, an upcoming November ballot measure that would ban all new oil production along with fracking in SLO County. We need Toto to pull back the curtain on this fraudulent measure that will do significant harm to county, city, and school district budgets, not to mention taking some $60-plus million out of the local economy. This initiative is being promoted as a purely local affair, generated by local concerns about oil spills, air pollution, and the desire to jettison all fossil fuels and adopt 100 percent renewables (solar and wind). We are told that the science that generates the global warming/climate change crisis requiring such drastic action is settled, and all dissenters have the moral credibility of those who deny that the Holocaust occurred. This worldview has been adopted and incorporated into official state policies to be enforced by various edicts handed down by unaccountable regulatory agencies, such as the California Air Resources Board. The Legislature adopted AB 32 mandating reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to levels not seen since the early 1990s; economic impacts were deemed irrelevant or dismissed. Accordingly, the cost of energy in California continues to climb even as the rest of the nation sees declining energy prices and expanding economic opportunities. Silicon Valley is seeing growth, and the state has strong economic prospects in the Bay Area and greater LA, but large sectors of the state are experiencing stagnant growth or even Depression-like conditions. The middle class is squeezed and the working poor hammered as their cost of living escalates even as their buying power diminishes. In Sacramento, legislators and Bay Area elites yawn, some even suggesting the state would do better without middleclass burdens on the economy. On a national scale we’ve been inundated with breathless stories about collusion of the Trump campaign with the Russians: still no evidence produced that any collusion occurred but the feds are still looking. Surely there must be a crime somewhere out there, and they will find it even if they have to create it. If they only looked behind the green door, the environmental door that is. Apparently, the Sierra Club Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council have been caught with their fingers in the Russian cookie jar, (wittingly or not) taking $10 million from the Sea Change Foundation, a Bermuda company congressional investigators have linked to Russian front groups whose mission was to sabotage American energy production. A Congressional Report from the Committee on Science, Space, and

Technology, “Russian Attempts to Influence U.S. Domestic Energy Markets by Exploiting Social Media,” dated March 1, 2018, documents Russian efforts to sabotage U.S. energy markets. Didn’t hear about this? No headlines in the local paper or lead stories on the local TV station? Don’t hold your breath, you won’t. According to the report, “Russiansponsored agents funneled money to U.S. environmental organizations in an attempt to portray energy companies in a negative way and disrupt domestic energy markets. … Documents … confirmed that Russian agents were exploiting American social media platforms in an effort to … suppress research and development of fossil-fuels, and stymie efforts to expand the use of natural gas.” The congressional report found that between 2015 and 2017, the Russian front company Internet Research Agency, (a Russian company based in St. Petersburg) made more than 9,000 posts to social media (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) disparaging fossil fuels, pipelines, and heavily targeted fracking of shale deposits used to increase natural gas production, and hyped alarmist views on climate change to disrupt U.S. energy production. Could it be that Measure G is partly a result of this subversive effort? The Russian effort to suppress U.S. natural gas production is critical from their perspective because the Kremlin’s national security and their geopolitical agenda is jeopardized by expanded U.S. natural gas production. Their ability to modernize and expand their strategic nuclear forces is dependent upon keeping international fossil fuel prices high since their economy is supported by large fossil fuel exports. Expanded American natural gas exports undermines their global influence and especially their hold on European countries dependent upon Russian natural gas exports to power their economies. America stands on the brink of becoming the leading exporter of oil and natural gas, driving down international fossil fuel prices, thereby undermining Russian military expansion without firing a shot. Accordingly, the Russians consider it vital to sabotage any American expansion of domestic oil and gas production. For proof of these charges, the congressional report states, “In January 2017, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a report that contained ‘clear evidence that the Kremlin is financing and choreographing anti-fracking propaganda in the United States.’” The hype will continue, facts will be lost in the frenzy of a political campaign. Hopefully, voters will see through the fog, pull back the curtain, and expose the fraud before further economic damage is inflicted upon the county. ∆ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

Opinion

The Shredder

Get trendy! A ll you fashionistas out there have a new, very San Luis Obispo color of lipstick that will be available soon-ish. You can make those lips mighty! Mighty red, that is, with Heidi is Mighty Matte Lipstick. Yes, that’s named after SLO’s now iconic rose-adorned mayor, Heidi Harmon, whose red lip color will soon benefit RISE, a local nonprofit that helps victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. A dollar out of the $21 you will spend to buy those #lookgooddogood lips will go to the SLO-based organization. Awesome idea! But who gets the other $20? I was thinking we could take another $1 of that lipstick purchase and donate it to the SLO Police Department for training on how to speak with victims of sexual assault, because they need to step up their game. I haven’t heard a peep from the department about my buddy SLOPD Sgt. Chad Pfarr or his comments about how sexual assault victims “conjure up” sexual assaults because they get too drunk. I also never heard anything out of women’s rights advocate Mighty Heidi about how she’s going to work with her buddy SLOPD Police Chief Deanna Cantrell to ensure that the number of sexual assault cases successfully prosecuted out of the city of SLO increases.

The numbers are mighty sad. With 81 reports of alleged sexual assaults in the city in 2016, and less than a handful of those prosecuted, maybe it’s time law enforcement changes its approach. If we can be the first city to ban smoking in public, maybe we can also be the first city to treat sexual assault cases in a manner that actually punishes the perpetrator. Potentially, Bluebird Salon, which came up with the mighty lips concept, can have a whole line of colors to benefit other #lookgooddogood causes. I’m actually a little jealous I didn’t come up with the idea, but red really isn’t my color. I vote for a Shred Your Friends For Being NIMBYs line! Metallic purple looks really good above these sexy keys. Plus, it’s very punk rock. And that’s so hot right now! We can put out an accompanying hair dye in the same exact color. You know you want metallic purple highlights. It’s way cooler than the gray hair that some millennials are rocking these days, which I don’t understand at all! It’d be a great package deal that you buy for all your friends who rag on poverty, homelessness, and affordable housing in their neighborhoods while simultaneously bitching about the cost of living on the Central Coast! We can

put $5 of every purchase into funding affordable housing with People’s SelfHelp Housing. We can take another $5 and put it toward providing homeless services with the 5 Cities Homeless Coalition. And another $5 can go toward the SLO County Jail fund to build a mental health unit! But first, I want to see that damn report to the county on what exactly needs to change over there to prevent deaths like Andrew Holland’s. Mum’s still the word on that from the county, which is no surprise. That darn Code of Silence seems to be super trendy right now. You know what’s also trendy? The county’s brand spanking new Code of Civility. It’s all the rage among our elected officials right now! You know what it needs? A lip color. I vote for lip gloss in hot pink. We can call it Civility Rules! and everyone who so courageously signed their name to the county’s regional pledge to be civil to one another should have to wear it. That way it’s easier for SLO County 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill to remember not to yell at 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold during a public meeting. He’ll see that ’80s sheen of pink, iridescently glowing in the halogen-tinted light, and remember to hold it in. Instead, he’ll say, “Debbie, I hear you, but I completely disagree because we live on ideologically separate planets.” I, for one, believe that SLO County Board of Supervisors Chair John Peschong would look absolutely fabulous

with neon-tinted lips. And once Civility Rules! hits that mouth, every conservative in the county will be scrambling to buy it and wear it. We can hike up the price by another $20, and put it toward the county roads that didn’t get repaired because the selfhelp tax failed in 2016—in part thanks to that hip, happening trend-setter John “the anti-tax man” Peschong. Those soon to be glossy-lipped members of the Republican Party of SLO are gunning for the gas tax on the November ballot. If they’re successful, the Cholame “Y” interchange is going to need all the donations it can get. That project is Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham’s baby. Maybe he needs a tube of Civility Rules! too. Those North County folks can also buy the most moist blue lip stain imaginable with a shade made just for them: Water Banking is for Losers. We can take $3 from every purchase of the oceancolored stick and put it in a Resnick Rehabilitation Fund to buy the acres and acres of land that Justin Vineyards razed to the ground in 2015. We could put it in a conservation easement and bring it back to environmental health. Yeah, we have no idea what’s going on with that controversial piece of ground, either.

This is America

GALA’s Proud To Be art show celebrates the LGBTQ community, patriotism BY RYAH COOLEY hey weren’t supposed to be friends. She was a lesbian. He was a transgender man from Texas. Within the LGBTQ community, the first group often sees the second as well, traitors. “Because I ditched the team,” RawfeyL Gene Burge (the transgender man) explained. But after many conversations about art and health insurance, Lynn Schmidt (the lesbian) and RawfeyL are decidedly friends. She’s now his ally, spending countless phone calls talking to insurance reps to make sure RawfeyL’s upcoming phalloplasty surgery (aka “bottom surgery”) will be covered. But she’s also kind of his artistic muse. During a recent art class at Cuesta College, Schmidt, who is the gallery coordinator for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance of the Central Coast (GALA), took a stunning black and white photo of RawfeyL draped in the American flag using a medium format camera (think those old-timey giant box cameras with the cord and the button). This, in turn, inspired RawfeyL to paint a self-portrait on a recycled canvas, with the flag once more draped around his body, featuring Morro Rock (he lives in nearby Los Osos) and the ocean in the background with black and white stripes around the border, as an homage to the original photo. And, of course, a phallic shape outlines RawfeyL’s body on the painting. Most of his work centers on penises as he’s in the process of fully physically

PATRIOTIC A photo that Lynn Schmidt took of artist RawfeyL Gene Burge, inspired him to paint a self-portrait (pictured here in progress) that tackles themes of patriotism and diversity.

Both artists felt inspired by the 2016 presidential election. “I was outraged by the election of him [President Donald Trump] and the way he chooses to speak and represent Americans,” Schmidt said. “This was my attempt to go, ‘Hey, we’re just like everyone else, we’re normal people.’” The photograph Schmidt took of RawfeyL is part of a series, We The People Photos, featuring all black and white photos of diverse Americans draped in the flag that RawfeyL, Los Osos based transgender artist Schmidt has slowly begun transitioning.

Think about that, I’m recycling my body. Because of this I’ve been driven to get into politics. You have to fight this from the inside, and I look like a big old white guy with a funny accent. I could totally sneak in there and fuck with them.” RawfeyL’s struggle, in turn, inspired Schmidt to chronicle his journey. She’s currently working on a still untitled documentary about his quest to feel physically whole. If all goes according to plan, RawfeyL said he’ll be the first person on the Central Coast to have a phalloplasty paid for by insurance. “It’s about him going through the phalloplasty, but it’s also about me becoming friends with him and my take on it,” Schmidt said. “They [transgender people] really are the lowest ones on the totem pole and everyone craps on them, and the story is that we met and became friends and I am his advocate now.” RawfeyL hopes that both pieces will

make people reconsider what it means to be an American. “I’m hoping that people start to think about patriotism and who is a patriot. Transgender Americans of the LGBTQ alphabet are the most discriminated against and by the government,” RawfeyL said. “You can’t serve in the military. You don’t have to treat a transgender person’s broken arm. I didn’t have insurance until ACA. Everything I did I paid cash, I couldn’t get insurance.

Tranz Central Coast is raising money on GoFundMe to help pay for Dr. Green’s training, and Heumann hopes to also get a boost from a SLO County Community Foundation “Growing Together” grant—which points to another exciting trend that advocates see. More public money and resources are being put toward meeting the needs of the LGBTQ communities. At the SLO County Behavioral Health Department, Nestor Veloz-Passalacqua, the department’s cultural competence coordinator, has organized similar trainings for county staff this year. “Awareness, acknowledgement, and respect” are at the foundation of the fourhour training, VelozPassalacqua said.

Tranz Central Coast aims to meet growing demand for transgender trainings in SLO County BY PETER JOHNSON ranz Central Coast leaders have observed a phenomenon build up recently: a steady influx of requests from SLO County groups for trainings on how to most respectfully and effectively work with people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ). Sometimes it’s a human resources director at a company who reaches out; other times, it’s a mental health services organization; or a group of educators, therapists, psychiatrists, or physicians. “It’s needed everywhere,” said Doug Heumann, the chair of Tranz Central Coast, which is the leading local organization supporting and serving transgender community members. For all the progress made in the past 20 years on LGBTQ rights, advocates like Heumann point out that the vital step of fully incorporating LGBTQ people’s diverse needs and experiences into the norms of society and its institutions is far from complete. When it comes to the transgender community, that’s especially true. Many identification forms still ask for just two gender options: male or female. People are often oblivious to the experiences of someone who’s transgender, going through a transition, or questioning. Using pronouns beyond he, him, she, and her—and learning how to effectively talk about that—is still a stumbling block. That’s one of the core purposes of the trainings: bringing awareness, education, and conversation about these realities to

SLO County. “When people stumble over language, they feel uncomfortable. And then they’re not as likely to engage in conversation and dialogue because they feel uncomfortable,” said Nancy Sutton, a member of the Tranz Central Coast education committee, which spearheads these trainings. “So there are discussions about language and terminology, discussions about just experiences people have when their gender expression is transgender. There are a lot of vignettes of what their experiences might be like as a way to invite people in a training to take that on and think about that. ... Then, when they’re walking around in the world, or have a business or organization, [they can think about] how they can make that experience more welcoming and affirming for trans individuals.” The growing demand for LGBTQ education and training is a positive trend, Heumann said, but it’s also overwhelming. The Tranz Central Coast education committee has only six people. The amount of requests from the community has begun to dwarf the group’s capacity. “There’s only so much of us to go around,” Heumann said. “What we’re trying to do is build up a bigger list of people to send to cover these different things.” Thinking hard about this issue in March, Tranz Central Coast came up with an ambitious idea: to invite one of the country’s leading transgender

Uniting the LGBTQ community

PHOTO COURTESY OF MICHELLE CALL

GALA works to provide more services and welcomes its first ever executive director BY KAREN GARCIA ore than five years ago, Michelle Call had a hereditary kidney condition that left her unable to work. She often had no energy and was in bed most of the day. Her husband ended up donating his kidney, and she was able to have transplant surgery. “I said if I ever was able to go back to any semblance of a normal life, I would really want to do something that is giving back to the community and making a difference,” she said. When she was back on her feet, Call worked at Visiting Angels, managing caregivers, hiring, and training. She also taught a class for Dignity Health on healthy living. But Call was always looking for something more, something that held a deeper meaning for herself. Recently, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance of the Central Coast (GALA), started looking for an executive director to head the community organization. “When GALA advertised for this I thought this is my ultimate dream job. I could be paid to spend all of my time

It would like to have a therapist on-site, a lawyer, and offer medical testing. “We want to serve the community in a more practical way. We have peer groups now, which are great, but we know that a lot of LGBTQ people cannot afford health care and mental health care. Even if they could afford it, they don’t have anyone to go to that is trans friendly, for example, so they don’t go,” Call said. Along with providing services, GALA is also working on an initiative to increase the knowledge and understanding of LGBTQ mental health needs. It’s called #Out4MentalHealth and engages LGBTQ people throughout California to develop a mental health equity agenda and offer tools and resources that address these disparities. GALA is also seeking to possibly change the organization’s name. A public meeting will be held on July 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the San Luis Obispo Library, where the community can voice their opinion about whether the organization should change its name. “I want to hear about what people want in order to make GALA feel more like their organization, and that’s part of why we’re having that town hall,” she said. Call said the direction that GALA is moving is positive, and she’s ready to help in any way she can. “What I like to say is the kettle is always on. I have coffee and tea here.

Teens talk about the LGBTQ experience in SLO BY DELANY BURK whole life, he may not have denied his “trans-ness” for so long. “Coming out in this county, I feel very lucky. Because everyone is really, really nice about it,” Chris said. He said that sometimes people are a bit too eager to speak or act on his behalf. “It’s like, ‘Excuse me, I can fight my own battles, thank you,’” Chris said. Coming out to family can be a different experience. While some parents of LGBTQ teens can be uneducated or unaccepting of their children once they have come out, GALA youth group members seemed to agree that many people expect too much of their parents in these situations. “I feel like people are really hard on parents because they expect them to take the news relatively well and have some composure, and they don’t. When you come out, for a while you’re not accepting it, you don’t want this,” Chris said. “At least that’s how it was for me … I feel like yes, parents are accountable when they’re being jerks, but I feel like people are really, really hard on them because PRIDE PREP The Q Youth Group at GALA they’re being really hard on themselves understand the concept that their child at the time.

Progenitors! Toots and the Maytals come to the Fremont Theater

W

hen The Maytals frontman Frederick “Toots” Hibbert sang “Do the Reggay” on their 1968 single, it was the first song to use the term— ostensibly naming the popular genre. The Jamaican act started as a vocal trio and was signed to Island Records about the same time as Bob Marley. You really don’t get any more connected to the genesis of reggae than Toots and the Maytals. Bands such as The Clash and The Specials have covered their songs. They were also featured prominently in the soundtrack to the classic 1972 film The Harder They Come, and they’ve collaborated with the likes of Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt. For the past 56 years, the group has remained a seminal force in ska, rocksteady, and reggae, and they’re coming to the Fremont Theater this Friday, July 6 (9 p.m.; 16-and-older; $38 at Boo Boo’s or eventbrite.com). Katchafire and Junior Toots will open. Also coming up at the Fremont is The Chris Robinson Brotherhood on Thursday, July 12 (9 p.m.; $24 to $249 VIP at Boo Boo’s or eventbrite. com). Robinson shot to prominence as the frontman of The Black Crowes, and he and his band are currently touring in support of Barefoot In The Head, their third release in two years, that features more of their engaging feel-good, psychedelic rock. Hippy music at its best!

McMurtry is the son of famed Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, The Last Picture Show), PHOTO COURTESY OF JAMES MCMURTRY

connections Local children’s book explores a higher power and twin flames

C

reation, reincarnation, and twin flames are all the makings of a great exploration of religion, life, and true love—or a children’s book, if you think like San Luis Obispo-based Rebecca Velasquez and her 8-year-old son, Wesley, who co-produced a story on these very topics that came out in May. Rebecca and Wesley sat down with New Times to talk about their first book, Sol Finds Love: A Sacred Love Story for Children, a picture book that explores ideas such as friendship, deep emotional connections, nature, being truthful, finding one’s own truth, and overcoming loss. New Times: What was the process of writing a book together like? Rebecca Velasquez: Sol Finds Love is actually part of a series. I basically started writing the third book, Sunshine and His Sack of Snakes, after doing a self-expression and leadership course, and I was just really inspired. I had never done any writing at all, but I had the inspiration at like 3 in the morning. I had some character in mind and started writing, and I decided to take characters from that story, Sol and Moon, and I backtracked and told their story, and that’s how Sol Finds Love came about. We wrote the story right before we moved to California. I had lived in Connecticut for my entire life apart from college so it was just a time of questioning everything, and learning to align with my own soul. The character of Sol is really on a journey of aligning with her soul, speaking her truth IMAGE COURTESY OF REBECCA VELASQUEZ

in the face of fear, and that really mirrored my process, and our family’s process, of questioning where do we want to live, and re-evaluating and re-assessing soul connections in my own life, and leaving a place I had lived my entire life. Wesley said, “I want to be in the newspaper,” right when we started writing, and I said “OK, great.” I had read so many stories to him growing up, and I thought it would be awesome for him to go through the process, to see how a book is actually written, illustrated, and published. So his involvement was that I would read him both the stories, and he did more critiquing around illustrations with the professional illustrator, Mark Allen of Creative Anomaly. In one, when Sol was crying, there was a puddle of tears and he said, “Mom, that looks like pee so I don’t want to have a puddle of tears.” So we took that out.

Split Screen

WWMr.RD? M organ Neville (20 Feet From Stardom) helms this documentary biopic about beloved cardigan-clad children’s TV host Fred Rogers. (94 min.)

Glen It’s easy to dismiss Fred Rogers as “just” a children’s TV host, and a sappy, low-budget one at that, but this documentary reveals just how deeply he cared about children; how hard he worked at helping children through topical issues such as Robert Kennedy’s assassination, divorce, and war; and how seriously he took his role as host of positive children’s programming as foil to what he saw as bad role modeling and encouragement of humanity’s baser instincts in other kids’ programs. This documentary mixes archival footage of his show, both off screen and on; interviews with those who knew him and were part of his show such as his wife Joanne Rogers, and members of his cast such as Betty Aberlin (Lady Aberlin) and François Scarborough Clemmons; and particularly memorable guests such as Yo-Yo Ma and Koko the sign language gorilla. There’s even some animation to help illustrate some of the narration about his life. Though I watched Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood as a kid, I really don’t remember much of it, perhaps because Rogers was never heavyhanded or didactic. His main message was love and acceptance. He wanted each child to know he or she was loved and capable of loving. He also wanted kids to know that whoever they are, that’s good enough. It’s about as close to Jesus’ message as you can get, but ironically it was a message that led to backlash

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

by—get this!— conservatives who argued Rogers created a generation of entitled brats. The “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church considered Rogers—an ordained minister, by the way—an enemy, too. They actually protested Rogers’ memorial service. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a ringing endorsement! He’s rankling the right hides, but it’s hard to believe such a gentle, sweet, loving person could be so polarizing. Anna While we both grew up with Mr. Rogers as a children’s television host, my experience differs quite a bit from yours in the way that I remember his presence and his show in my childhood intrinsically. I remember the Land of Make Believe. I will singsong lyrics from his program without a second thought in my day-to-day. I dreamt as a girl that Mr. Rogers was a long-lost uncle who would one day come to our family picnics and play with me (still dream it, to be honest). Perhaps it speaks to the fact that we grew up in different generations; PBS didn’t officially launch until 1970, while you were a kid—a full-fledged one at that— and my relationship with television didn’t start until 15 or 20 years later, when more programming like Reading Rainbow and Sesame Street were the norm for young mornings as cereal got guzzled down and the older siblings got shuffled to school. I’ll admit it right off the bat: I’ve got an affinity for Mr. R that millions of people my age share; he’s a symbol of simple, gentle love, a reminder that it is not only all right to feel, but important to do so and with gusto. That you are good, that we are good, and we are loved just as we are. The argument against his ideals continues today; people are worried the coddling of children makes them weak, telling them they are loved and needed and special spoils the bunch, that we are raising selfish and difficult children to be selfish and difficult adults. The beauty of this film is that it addresses it all—from racial tension to religion, from sexual identity to acknowledging and appreciating our differences. I’ll say this for sure: Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

did nothing to dissuade my love for Mr. Rogers and the characters he gave kids to work out their own way in this world. Glen There’s certainly something intrinsically emotional throughout. Maybe it was simple nostalgia or being warmed by his message, but this documentary had me choked up throughout. Seeing Mr. Rogers gaze with love into a learning-disabled child’s eyes, watching him invite African-American cast member François to soak his feet with him in a child’s wading pool during a time when whites and blacks didn’t swim together, or seeing Rogers channel the empathic tiger sock puppet Daniel just got me. It’s not like Rogers was without fault. When he learned that François was gay, he thought that was something that needed hiding for fear it would undermine his program, but Rogers was right on race and right on inclusion of disabled children during a time before such kids were mainstreamed in public schools. It’s also amazing to see Rogers go before Congress and argue for the worth of public television. It’s now decades later, and our current president seems bent on dividing our country by race and stripping federal funding from the arts, NPR, and PBS. This documentary is a reminder that there was a tireless champion of tolerance and inclusivity. We could certainly use that again. What makes the film even more poignant is its depiction of Rogers at his lowest. Looking at our culture today, it’s clear his message didn’t prevail.

Still, his message was a worthy one and remains so today. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a wonderful celebration of a wonderful man who touched countless lives and exemplified a life well lived. Anna It does call to the political climate today in a harsh and unignorable way, especially since funding for the arts has been deemed unnecessary by the current administration. Luckily, films like this come around to remind us of the good. I, too, was a streaming river of tears throughout. Rogers’ basis was in faith; he went to the seminary and exuded Christian values in the best way possible—through love and acceptance, and also through fault and penance. As a crusader for early childhood education through television as well as an advocate for individualism and acceptance, the hero-in-a-cardigan shines through with a smile and a kind word. Learning of his imperfections and inner dialogue does nothing but fascinate me more with the man I have always wanted to sit next to and soak my feet in a pool with. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a lovely tribute to a most humble hero and advocate. See it and be grateful that Rogers chose to share himself with the world in a way that let us sit and be in silence with him for a bit each day. I for one will always love him. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

This heartwarming indie flick is exactly what you need this summer. Seriously, go to the theater now. I’ll wait. Wasn’t that lovely? From the acting of the starstudded cast Offerman, Blythe Danner (Husbands and Wives), Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine), and Ted Danson (The Good Place, Body Heat), to the musical performances (and references and soundtrack), and the use of imagery and subtle moments to tell a story, Hearts Beat Loud is a nuanced coming of age story—

for both father and daughter. After owning a record shop for 17 years, Frank, who is about to become an empty nester with his daughter Sam leaving for UCLA to study to become a doctor in the fall, feels that it’s time for a change, but he’s not sure what to do exactly. He also can’t let go of the dream of making it big in music, back from the days when he and his late wife had a band together. So naturally when he and Sam produce a song that is pretty bitchin’, he races to put it on Spotify without telling her. When their song does unexpectedly well, it puts Sam in a place of feeling like she has to choose between music and creativity and medicine and stability.

MOVIES from page 40 burnt out on the hardships of his life— losing his wife young, raising his daughter alone, caring for his senile mother, and trying to sell records for a living in the age of iTunes—and also unbelievably sweet as a loving, goofy father to Sam. While Sam gets ready to leave the only home she’s ever known, she also ends up falling in love with a girl, Rose (American Honey), a young artist she meets at a gallery. The beautiful thing is that the movie (and the other characters in it) doesn’t make a big deal about Sam being a lesbian. Instead, it’s presented simply as a young person falling in love for the first time, weeks before she has to move to the other side of the country. And Sam and Rose are both black, which the movie doesn’t dwell on. Nor is it a thing that Frank is a white dad raising his black daughter, solo. It just is. We also get standout performances from Danner as Frank’s mom who is starting to forget who and where she is and shoplifts on the regular because of it; Collette as Frank’s attractive, business savvy land lady; and Danson as his wise, yet high/tipsy bartender best friend. Hearts Beat Loud is little pick me up that explores what it’s like to be at a crossroads in life, no mater what age you are. (97 min.) —Ryah Cooley

INCREDIBLES 2 What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Sunset Drive-In, Park, Galaxy From Writer/Director Brad Bird (Ratatouille) comes the sequel Incredibles 2, 14 years after the original film premiered. Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2—but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T.

the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again. It’s been more than a decade since the Incredibles first burst onto the scene and delighted audiences with its unique nostalgia drenched take on what was then just an emerging powerhouse genre in contemporary cinema. That’s more than a decade of Avenging, Dark Knightin’, Deadpooling, and world-saving that the crime fighting family and the world missed out on during their absence. Hell, when the movie premiered Tobey Maguire was still Spiderman. Yes, there have been five Spiderman movies since the first Incredbles came out. I still have trouble believing that even though I just wrote it. Which is why I was all the more impressed with Bird’s follow-up for his super-powered family. It should be commended how he and the animation team at Disney’s Pixar managed to be true to the original without kowtowing to modern trends. And while the film may be a shade darker than the

first iteration, this new installment delivers on just about everything it promises and should leave families entertained until the next chapter arrives in theaters (which hopefully comes sooner than a decade and a half). The new super villain that the Incredibles (well, mainly Helen) are up against this time is the Screen Slaver, a nemesis who uses our enslavement to technology to hypnotize his victims using any screen around. In this state, the Screen Slaver can get anyone to do his evil bidding and they won’t even remember it later. At the same time, the Screen Slaver is very anti-technology and thinks people are overly dependent on it at the expense of actually living life, which seems a bit ironic. I would have liked to have seen a deeper exploration of gender roles, but kind of get that doing so would have made the movie even longer (and at 118 minutes this one is asking a lot of its younger audiences, even with multiple action scenes and an endless array of power displays). The film is certainly not without its missteps, specifically in how

it handles Frozone’s wife, Honey (voice of Kimberly Adair Clark), who we only hear nagging her husband, we never see her. She really does just feel like a recycled gag from 2004’s Incredibles. How hard would it have been to design a character and give her some meaningful screen time besides reducing her to some cheap foil for Jackson’s Frozone to briefly interact with? As for the villain reveal of the Screen Slaver, it’s not going to come as a shock to seasoned moviegoers but may catch a few distracted parents, and especially kids, off guard. That being said, I have to hand it to Bird for how he packages an action sequence and his apparent skill at pairing together super powers for battles like a sommelier with fine wine. The folks over at Marvel Studios could learn a lot from these films in terms of crafting fight scenes that, although almost always formulaic, can still be delivered in ways that make them feel fresh. Bird proves that multiple times throughout Incredibles 2 (just watch Elastigirl interact with her bike and try to tell me that’s not some cool out-of-the-box thinking for a chase scene involving a human being essentially made

of indestructible rubber). I also wanted to take a minute to commend Bird’s choice to leave cell phones out of the picture, allowing his film to flex its muscles without pocket-sized distractions. It truly speaks to the traditionalist bent of the series, which seems to draw from 1950s era super hero shows and comics, as much as even earlier, “Golden Age” science fiction classics. Bird gives audiences a glimpse of how his generation and those before him viewed the future, and while those dreams may be dated, they still come across as new, exciting, and utterly unique, and that’s pretty incredible.

Three years later, the island has been abandoned and left to the dinosaurs, but then the island’s dormant volcano rumbles to life, threatening to kill all the dinosaurs. Claire Dearing (Bruce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) mount a rescue mission, but do the powers that be have an ulterior motive to funding their attempt? This is a big, fun, entertaining, summer popcorn movie that audiences will like but critics will condemn thanks to the law of diminishing returns.

What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm RBG is a must-see documentary chronicling Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s improbable life and career, superbly highlighting her heroic litigation in the 1970s to overturn laws that discriminated by gender, her tenure on the Supreme Court that’s been defined by her scathing dissents, and the ways in which she’s inspired a new generation of women, becoming a cultural phenomenon at the ripe age of 85. Beyond those highlights, RBG offers a poignant portrayal of Ginsburg as a person, her reserved and steely yet sweet temperament, and her genuinely beautiful marriage. Filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen really capture Ginsburg’s humanity through interviews with her, her friends, and family members, which add a valuable layer of depth to the documentary. Ginsburg, a Brooklyn native, entered Harvard Law School in 1956 as one of nine women in a class of 500. She juggled her coursework with caring for both her baby and her husband, who had fallen ill with cancer (but ultimately survived). After graduating, she struggled to find law work as a female professional, despite being at the top of her class. Ginsburg eventually became a professor at Columbia University, where she pioneered a class on gender discrimination. In the ’70s, Ginsburg argued a series of

MOVIES from page 41 discrimination cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. Here, West and Cohen manage to make what could have been a dry rundown of court cases compelling and dramatic. They tracked down the plaintiffs on these cases, who had faced gender-based discrimination ranging from unequal pay to unequal benefits as military service members. RBG weaves original audio from Ginsburg’s oral arguments with commentary from Ginsburg and others to drive home the historical significance of those cases. Almost singlehandedly, Ginsburg changed the legal landscape for all women in the country. RBG begins and ends with exploring her legacy, particularly among the newest generation of Americans. As the Supreme Court turned more and more conservative in the early 2000s, Ginsburg’s dissenting opinions became her signature and drew attention from young progressives. At 85 years old today, her spunk and sharp intellect are widely adored. T-shirts labeled “Notorious RBG” have become a hit, and goofy web images with her face imprinted on various superheroes have gone viral on the Internet. You’d be hard pressed to find a more important living American icon than RBG, and this documentary proves it. (97 min.) —Peter Johnson

the final act, I was thinking, “How’s he going to write his way out of this one?” The answer is he isn’t. The ending feels lazy and more interested in teeing up a sequel than resolution.

Modine as Secretary of Defense James Riley and Catherine Keener as Graver’s CIA supervisor Cynthia Foards are given fairly one-dimensional characters and can’t seem to do enough to flesh them out.

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Rental Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Park, Galaxy In this sequel to Sicario (2015), CIA operative Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) reteams with Central American vigilante Alejandro Gillick (Benicio Del Toro) to take on the Mexican drug cartels when it becomes clear they’re trafficking terrorists across the U.S. border. The pair kidnaps Isabel Reyes (Isabela Moner), a drug lord’s 16-year-old daughter, hoping to incite war between rival cartels, but things go wrong, pitting Graver against Gillick. Italian director Stefano Sollima (A.C.A.B., Suburra) helms this screenplay by actor-writer-director-producer Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water, Wind River). First, I have to say I think Taylor Sheridan is one of the best screenwriters of machismo cinema. Most people see male strength as dumb and uncomplicated, but in Sheridan’s hands, it’s a nuanced, often contradictory thing with a complex moral underpinning. There’s always a code of conduct coursing beneath the bravado, and his characters always have deftly written internal struggles. He’s been acting since the mid-’90s, but Sicario was his first screenplay brought to the big screen, and each one since, from 2016’s Hell or Highwater to 2017’s brilliant and underrated Wind River have thoroughly engaged me. I also recently watched the pilot for his new TV series Yellowstone, with Kevin Costner, and it’s great. Now that I’m done gushing about Sheridan, here’s the criticism: Sicario: Day of the Soldado doesn’t measure up to the rest of his oeuvre. The story contains many of the same earmarks of the original—a grim and violent tone, an examination of the complicated morality of fighting entities as evil and remorseless as drug cartels, and the dirty trickster-ism wielded to get results. Unfortunately, the screenplay feels rushed, lacking nuance and a satisfactory ending. In

Calwise: California, in spirit Distinctly local micro-distillery opens Paso cocktail cave

W

some might even say crisp, like a breezy day at Montaña de Oro. It’s just all so California. Owner and master distiller Aaron Bergh, 25, has always been in love with this place. His new cave, it seems, is his greatest love letter to the Golden State yet. With a laid back feel, massive windows, and lots of grub on hand (a slew of flatbread pizza options, bacon-wrapped dates, flourless chocolate cake), this is the kind of place you could stop into for a date night or before hitting the drum circle after a sweet surf sesh. However, let’s be clear. This is not the distillery of the cigar-smoking fedorawearing set. “People can be intimidated to taste liquor; they’re worried they’ll make a face or something,” Bergh says. “That’s why it’s so great that we’re able to offer cocktails to our guests, like a real daiquiri, which you have to try. You can come in, relax, have a bite to eat, and sip on a drink.” That’s right, folks. We’re talking about real cocktails made from a full bar, not just straight tastings (which are available, too). Thanks to a new law that allows distilleries with food-serving kitchens to serve mixed drinks, Calwise is one part distillery and tasting room, one part Caliinspired cocktail lounge. There’s even a real-life bar tender (fully bearded, for authenticity). Bar manager Scott Romaine is shaking up fresh, modern drinks imbued with just-squeezed juices, muddled native herbs, and—of course— Calwise gin, blonde rum, and spiced rum. Try the Wise Man, Calwise blonde rum, broiled lemon, and blueberry sage gastrique; the Fizzy Lifting, Calwise Big Sur gin, rhubarb, Meyer lemon, and soda; or the popular California Mule, Calwise spiced rum, fresh lime, and local Root Elixirs ginger beer.

That gin? It’s made with premium wine grapes, all the rage in SLO County. Calwise’s earthy spiced rum is emblazoned with the image of a Golden State Grizzly; the contents described in the tasting notes: “like a car ride through coastal orange groves farmed by naked hippies who don’t believe in deodorant and wear clove, cinnamon, and vanilla essential oils instead.” The blonde rum, fermented from U.S.grown raw sugar cane and rested in chardonnay barrels, is distinctly sunny—

behind the scenes. As the story goes, during Prohibition, the feds shut down his family’s moonshining operation—but not for long. A century later, the law came knocking again (Cal Poly authorities didn’t appreciate the student making hooch in his dorm). Now he’s got plenty of room to tinker and grow. Bergh says it feels good to have the 6,000-square-foot facility up and running; he no longer has to share or borrow equipment. A glittering copper still is the jewel of the new distillery workspace. Customized to Bergh’s specific modifications, this baby can handle gin, rum, and whatever crazy thing he throws at it next (an impressive multi-tasker— not unlike the master distiller himself). “This is going to be a testing ground to release new things out into the public; stuff you can’t get at BevMo or anywhere else but here,” the distiller says. There’s already a new barrel-aged gin in the works, plus lots of small-batch mystery projects (liqueurs, brandies) that’ll take shape throughout the year. “This is going to be a hub of creativity and experimentation, and it is going to drive the next chapter for Calwise Spirits. I’m stoked to finally have my own home,” he says. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain wants Calwise Spirits to make a perfume out of its herbaceous Big Sur Gin. She can be reached at hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

H ayley’s Bites cheese and nuts Looking for a greener protein bar? You might want to check out Atsa, a new company created by Cal Poly student Rafael Pintor that promises to save us all from that dreaded midafternoon slump. Inspired by his family’s indigenous roots and how native tribes utilize superfoods, the bars feature pinyon nuts wild-harvested from forests (try one for yourself and learn more at atsafoods.com) … Celebrate Bastille Day with fab fromage! Fromagerie Sophie in SLO will host a build-your-own-platter event in honor of French holiday coming up this July 14 (the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille, which was a turning point in the French Revolution). For more information, call (805) 503-0805.

shaken and stirred No need for a password: A new Prohibition-style, speakeasy bar has opened in Paso! 1122 Cocktail Lounge is located behind Pappy McGregor’s Irish Pub, and offers up a high-end cocktail experience (In order to enter, ring the bell in the dark alleyway—how mysterious, right? Learn more by following on Instagram @1122.cocktail.lounge) … The winners of the 16th annual Central Coast Wine Competition are in: Best

sparkling wine was awarded to Arroyo Grande-based Laetitia Vineyard & Winery’s 2015 brut rosé; the best red was awarded to Cass Vineyard & Winery’s 2016 mourvèdre (Paso Robles). Best pink? Opolo Vineyards 2017 rosé (Paso Robles). What about spirits? Best rye whiskey: Krobār Craft Distillery Cask Strength Rye Whiskey (Paso Robles); aged grape brandy: Bethel Road House Brandy (Templeton); Best new Western gin: Calwise Spirits Big Sur Gin (Paso Robles).

summer delights Do-it-yourself doughnuts are a real thing! A new, totally genius biz in SLO is offering up all the sprinkle, glaze, jelly, and sugar flavors of the rainbow, so you can choose exactly what sphere of fried dough to cram into your face. Word on the street, it’ll open next month at 847 Higuera St. in the former Teaberry location! … Love is merely a madness: The Central Coast Shakespeare Festival kicks off this July 12 through Aug. 4, featuring As You Like it and The Three Musketeers. No time to pack a picnic? No worries! Beda’s Biergarten and Piemonte’s Deli will be on hand to serve while you watch (plus, sip wine by Filipponi Ranch; tickets at centralcoastshakespeare.org). ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain doth protest too much when it comes to mayo. Send bites to hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

H ayley’s P icks Mixing it up

Cocktail hour is back, baby! Break out your cuff links, martini glasses, and swizzle sticks. Krobār Craft Distillery and Yes Cocktail Company are joining together to bring a whole new mix to the San Luis Obispo Public Market at Bonetti Ranch, currently under construction at the corner of Tank Farm Road and Higuera Street in SLO. OK, maybe this new cocktail collab is a bit more casual than the “cocktail hours” of yesteryear, but a gal can dream. Mixed Company will open its doors by summer 2019 inside the Market Hall, featuring Krobār’s Paso Robles-made spirits, and Yes Cocktail’s all-natural mixers and syrups, a SLOcal fave. What to expect? Well, seasonal cocktail creations, paired food tastings, and distilled spirits tastings, to start. You’ll be able to sip and taste Mixed Company’s menu inside the Market Hall or chill outside on a private patio (for those who want to stir it up at home, there’ll be Krobār and Yes products to go). With Kraken Coffee, High Street Market and Deli, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company, Negranti Creamery, and a farmers’ market already moving into the anticipated space, I’m ready to move in (permanently). ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain thinks beer, coffee, ice cream, sandwiches, and cocktails are the five main food groups. Send bites to hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

Commercial: 10-35 Gallon Waste Containers

* Maximum Volume and Weight per garbage can: 35 Gallons / 40 pounds MISCELLANEOUS CHARGES – ALL CUSTOMERS: Returned Check Fee: $35.00 each BASIS FOR THE PROPOSED RATE INCREASES The Proposed Rate Increases are necessary for the Garbage Service to continue to provide safe and reliable solid waste removal, transportation and disposal services to the citizens of California Valley CSD. The increase is requested are due to increasing operational costs. Several factors have contributed to these increased costs, including, but not limited to, the rising costs associated with the operation of the Garbage Service, increased costs associated with operation and fuel for vehicles, ongoing maintenance, increased labor costs, and increased costs associated with meeting more stringent State and Federal regulations. ANNUAL ADJUSTMENTS TO PROPOSED RATE INCREASE The District provides that revenue derived from rates should reasonably be expected to generate sufficient revenues to provide for Garbage compensation as calculated in accordance with the "City of San Luis Obispo Rate Setting Process and Methodology Manual for Integrated Solid Waste Management Rates". The Proposed Rate Increase Resolution, to be considered by the District Board of Directors on 5-22-2018 _, would authorize the District, without conducting a majority protest hearing, to adjust solid waste disposal rates annually based on findings: • That the requested increase is limited to the Garbage Service increased costs of providing services consistent with the City of San Luis Obispo's Rate Setting Process and Methodology Manual for Integrated Solid Waste Management Rates; and • Does not exceed the prior twelve (12) month percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers, as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. PROTEST: Under Proposition 218, if you are the owner of record of a parcel or parcels directly liable for payment of the garbage bill, you may submit a written protest against the proposed changes presented in the notice. Only one protest will be counted towards the majority protest per affected property. If written protests are filed by a majority of the affected owners the proposed rate increase will not be imposed. Oral comments at the public hearing will not qualify as formal protests unless accompanied by a written protest. Written protests regarding the proposed solid waste rate increase may be mailed to: CVCSD C/O SHIPSEY AND SEITZ INCORPORATED, ATTORNEY AT LAW 1066 PALM STREET SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA 93401

Before revocation of a nonprobate transfer can take effect or a right of survivorship to property can be eliminated, notice of the change must be filed and served on the other party.

However, you may use community property, quasi-community property, or you own separate property to pay an attorney to help you or to pay court costs. WARNING-IMPORTANT INFORMATION California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during a marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property. 1. The name and address of the court are:

There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his prorata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling $36,001.93 [10% of the Secretary’s bid] in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. A deposit need not accompany each oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $36,001.93 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable.

The Secretary may grant an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the direction of the HUD representative, offer the property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The scheduled foreclosure sale shall be cancelled or adjourned if it is established, by documented written application of the mortgagor to the Foreclosure Commissioner not less than 3 days before the date of sale, or otherwise, that the default or defaults upon which the foreclosure is based did not exist at the time of service of this notice of default and foreclosure sale, or all amounts due under the mortgage agreement are tendered to the Foreclosure Commissioner, in the form of a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Secretary of HUD, before public auction of the property is completed.

ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Twentieth century French novelist Marcel Proust described 19th century novelist Gustave Flaubert as a trottoire roulant, or “rolling sidewalk”: plodding, toneless, droning. Meanwhile, critic Roger Shattuck compared Proust’s writing to an “electric generator” from which flows a “powerful current always ready to shock not only our morality but our very sense of humanity.” In the coming weeks, I encourage you to find a middle ground between Flaubert and Proust. See if you can be moderately exciting, gently provocative, and amiably enchanting. My analysis of the cosmic rhythms suggests that such an approach is likely to produce the best long-term results.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Is there any prize more precious than knowing your calling? Can any other satisfaction compare with the joy of understanding why you’re here on earth? In my view, it’s the supreme blessing: to have discovered the tasks that can ceaselessly educate and impassion you; to do the work or play that enables you to offer your best gifts; to be intimately engaged with an activity that consistently asks you to overcome your limitations and grow into a more complete version of yourself. For some people, their calling is a job: marine biologist, kindergarten teacher, advocate for the homeless. For others, it’s a hobby, like long-distance-running, bird-watching, or mountain-climbing. St. Therese of Lisieux said, “My calling is love!” Poet Marina Tsvetaeva said her calling was “To listen to my soul.” Do you know yours, Libra? Now is an excellent time to either discover yours or home in further on its precise nature.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You remind me of Jack, the 9-year-old Taurus kid next door, who took up skateboarding on the huge trampoline his two moms put in their backyard. Like him, you seem eager to travel in two different modes at the same time. (And I’m glad to see you’re being safe; you’re not doing the equivalent of, say, having sex in a car or breakdancing on an escalator.) When Jack first began, he had difficulty in coordinating the bouncing with the rolling. But after a while he got good at it. I expect that you, too, will master your complex task.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): From the day you were born, you have been cultivating a knack for mixing and blending. Along the way, you have accomplished mergers that would have been impossible for a lot of other people. Some of your experiments in amalgamation are legendary. If my astrological assessments are accurate, the year 2019 will bring forth some of your all-time most marvelous combinations and unifications. I expect you are even now setting the stage for those future fusions; you are building the foundations that will make them natural and inevitable. What can you do in the coming weeks to further that preparation?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): An open letter to Cancerians from Rob Brezsny’s mother, Felice: I want you to know that I played a big role in helping my Cancerian son become the empathetic, creative, thoughtful, crazy character he is today. I nurtured his idiosyncrasies. I made him feel secure and well-loved. My care freed him to develop his unusual ideas and life. So as you read Rob’s horoscopes, remember that there’s part of me inside him. And that part of me is nurturing you just as I once nurtured him. I and he are giving you love for the quirky, distinctive person you actually are, not some fantasy version of you. I and he are helping you feel more secure and well-appreciated. Now I encourage you to cash in on all that support. As Rob has told me, it’s time for you Cancerians to reach new heights in your drive to express your unique self.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The ghost orchid is a rare white wildflower that disappeared from the British countryside around 1986. The nation’s botanists declared it officially extinct in 2005. But four years later, a tenacious amateur located a specimen growing in the West Midlands area. The species wasn’t gone forever, after all. I foresee a comparable revival for you in the coming weeks, Leo. An interesting influence or sweet thing that you imagined to be permanently defunct may return to your life. Be alert!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The ancient Greek poet Sappho described “a sweet-apple turning red high on the tip of the topmost branch.” The apple pickers left it there, she suggested, but not because they missed seeing it. It was just too high. “They couldn’t reach it,” wrote Sappho. Let’s use this scenario as a handy metaphor for your current situation, Virgo. I am assigning you the task of doing whatever is necessary to fetch that glorious, seemingly unobtainable sweet-apple. It may not be easy. You’ll probably need to summon extra ingenuity to reach it, as well as some as-yet unguessed form of help. (The Sappho translation is by Julia Dubnoff.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Have you entertained any high-quality fantasies about faraway treasures lately? Have you delivered inquiring communiqués to any promising beauties who may ultimately offer you treats? Have you made long-distance inquiries about speculative possibilities that could be inclined to travel in your direction from their frontier sanctuaries? Would you consider making some subtle change in yourself so that you’re no longer forcing the call of the wild to wait and wait and wait?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If a down-to-earth spiritual teacher advised you to go on a five-day meditation retreat in a sacred sanctuary, would you instead spend five days carousing with meth addicts in a cheap hotel? If a close friend confessed a secret she had concealed from everyone for years, would you unleash a nervous laugh and change the subject? If you read a horoscope that told you now is a favorable time to cultivate massive amounts of reverence, devotion, respect, gratitude, innocence, and awe, would you quickly blank it out of your mind and check your Instagram and Twitter accounts on your phone?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A typical working couple devotes an average of four minutes per day to focused conversation with each other. And it’s common for a child and parent to engage in meaningful communication for just 20 minutes per week. I bring these sad facts to your attention, Capricorn, because I want to make sure you don’t embody them in the coming weeks. If you hope to attract the best of life’s blessings, you will need to give extra time and energy to the fine art of communing with those you care about.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Allergies, irritants, stings, hypersensitivities: sometimes you can make these annoyances work in your behalf. For example, my allergy to freshly-cut grass meant that when I was a teenager, I never had to waste my Saturday afternoons mowing the lawn in front of my family’s suburban home. And the weird itching that plagued me whenever I got into the vicinity of my first sister’s fiancé: If I had paid attention to it, I wouldn’t have lent him the $350 that he never repaid. So my advice, my itchy friend, is to be thankful for the twitch and the prickle and the pinch. In the coming days, they may offer you tips and clues that could prove valuable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Are you somehow growing younger? Your stride seems bouncier and your voice sounds more buoyant. Your thoughts seem fresher and your eyes brighter. I won’t be surprised if you buy yourself new toys or jump in mud puddles. What’s going on? Here’s my guess: you’re no longer willing to sleepwalk your way through the most boring things about being an adult. You may also be ready to wean yourself from certain responsibilities unless you can render them pleasurable at least some of the time. I hope so. It’s time to bring more fun and games into your life. ∆
