Harmon re-elected SLO mayor, Christianson and Stewart on City Council

s upbeat music, people, and laughter emanated from the front patio of Kreuzberg in downtown San Luis Obispo on election night, Mayor Heidi Harmon was inside, dancing. In a vintage-Harmon red dress that twirled with her movement, synthetic red rose petals affixed to her hair, and a smile on her face, Harmon wore the look of a battle-weary politician cruising to re-election victory after a contentious fight with T. Keith Gurnee for city leadership. “This has been a really tough campaign,” Harmon told her supporters in Kreuzberg. “We have seen fear and misinformation spread throughout our community. But we choose love.” According to unofficial election night results, Harmon handily defeated Gurnee and her other challenger, Don Hendrick—winning 59.7 percent of the city vote. Gurnee claimed 37.5 percent; Hendrick took 2.6 percent. All precincts had reported as of New Times’ press time, though an unknown number of Election Day vote-by-mail ballots were still outstanding, according to the SLO County Clerk’s Office. While Harmon and her supporters celebrated heartily, across town Gurnee held a gathering of his own in a much quieter Café Roma, accompanied by City Council candidate James Lopes. Both men fell short in their races, with Lopes narrowly finishing third in a council race for two seats—claimed by incumbent Carlyn Christianson and Erica Stewart, president of the Cal Poly Alumni Association. Gurnee, Lopes, and council candidate Sarah

Flickinger, who finished fourth, shared similar messages—neighborhood advocates striving to temper development and protect SLO’s character. As the election night results trickled in, Gurnee told New Times he hoped his campaign had sent a message to the City Council that it should listen more to SLO residents. “If there’s one thing I hope that comes out of this, it’s that we have a City Council that doesn’t say they listen, they really listen,” Gurnee said. VICTORY San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon embraces a supporter “Because they’ve said at Kreuzberg in downtown SLO on Nov. 6, as election results showed they’ve been listening, she won a landslide victory over T. Keith Gurnee. but they haven’t been listening.” walked out of the debate. The race for mayor was contentious from Gurnee’s campaign was based on a message the outset. Gurnee’s candidacy emerged out of of SLO being at a crossroads, with its identity controversy over a bike path that will traverse on the line. He promised to push back on his neighborhood and remove parking in the state housing laws and reform city policies, Anholm District. A longtime Republican, portraying the current City Council as a Gurnee switched his party affiliation reckless body pushing forward an unbridled to Democrat prior to his run, drawing progressive agenda. criticism and skepticism from Harmon.

DOJ to investigate jail as county faces another inmate death lawsuit

of assault with a deadly weapon on Nov. 6, 2017. According to the lawsuit, Hammer was suffering from Parkinson’s disease, cellulitis, and several other physical and mental health problems. Hammer was isolated and placed in a solitary cell without his prescribed medications, according to the lawsuit. Hammer’s mental condition deteriorated to the point where he began eating his own feces at the command of his auditory hallucinations, the lawsuit states. Hammer was also taken to the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF) and seen at French Hospital before being retuned to the jail. According to a coroner’s investigation and autopsy report, Hammer died of a pulmonary embolism, or blood clot, due to deep vein thrombosis in his left leg. A medical examiner ruled his death as natural, but the lawsuit alleges that Hammer’s death was the result of neglect and mistreatment. San Francisco Attorney Paula Canny filed the lawsuit on behalf of Hammer’s wife. Canny also represented the family of Andrew Holland, a schizophrenic inmate who died of a blood clot after being strapped into a restraint chair for nearly two days in early 2017. The county paid a $5 million settlement to Holland’s family in connection with the death, which like Hammer’s, was ruled accidental. Hammer’s wife is seeking an unspecified amount of damages. She previously filed three administrative claims against the county related to her husband’s death, all of which were rejected. County Counsel Rita Neal said the county had not been served with the complaint

As the county got hit with yet another lawsuit in connection with an inmate death, officials announced on Nov. 7 that the U.S. Department of Justice will conduct an independent investigation of mental and medical health care at the SLO County Jail. A total of 21 inmates have died in the jail since 2000, with 13 of those deaths occurring since the election of current Sheriff Ian Parkinson in 2011. A written statement by the county said the DOJ’s investigation is a “civil review” and will not focuses on “a single event” but on the delivery of mental and medical health services in the facility. “The investigation will consider all relevant information, particularly the efforts the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office and the San Luis Obispo Health Agency have undertaken to ensure compliance with federal law,” the county’s statement said. “If deficiencies are identified during the investigation, the Department of Justice will provide technical assistance promptly, where possible and appropriate.” The announcement came days after the family of one of the inmates, Russell Hammer, filed a lawsuit against the county claiming that negligent medical and mental health care cause the 62-year-old’s death in November of 2017. Five months prior, the county was also sued by the family of Kevin Lee McLaughlin, who died in the jail in April 2017. Hammer was booked into the jail on a charge

New and familiar faces to take office after South County elections

The Arroyo Grande City Council will look very different after the results of the Nov. 6 elections, while Grover Beach’s will remain virtually unchanged, according to unofficial voting totals. As of the morning of Nov. 7, sitting Arroyo Grande City Councilmember Caren Ray was ahead in the race for mayor against two-term incumbent Jim Hill. According to the unofficial election results, Ray received more than 51 percent of the vote, putting her ahead of Hill by 238 votes. “I ran on a platform of moving our city forward,” Ray told New Times. “I see my job as helping the city have the constructive conversations we need to have to do that.” If her lead holds and she is elected mayor, Ray said she hopes to focus helping the city look for new opportunities for economic development and addressing issues with the Five Cities Fire Authority, all while keeping the small-town feel of the city that its residents cherish. “We need to make sure we keep an eye on preserving who we are as a community,” she said. Two new faces will likely be joining Ray on the council. Former SLO police officer Keith Storton and Jimmy Paulding, who ran and lost a bid for SLO County 4th District Supervisor in the June primaries, were on track to be elected to two open seats on the Arroyo Grande City Council. Paulding, who spent more than a year of combined campaigning for both races, said he was exhausted but happy with the results of the election. “It was a really rewarding experience,” he said. “It’s nice to know that all the hard work paid off.” Storton said this was his first time running for political office, said he was also pleased with the preliminary results. “I felt like we ran a very clean and optimistic campaign,” he said. “It was really a community-driven message.” The unofficial results in Grover Beach indicated that current City Councilmember Jeff Lee defeated fellow Councilmember Debbie Peterson for the chance to fill the seat of termed-out mayor John Shoals. Incumbent councilmembers Mariam Shah and Barbara Nicolls garnered enough votes to win their reelection bids. Because sitting councilmembers will likely be elected as mayors, both Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach may have to fill a vacant seat on their respective city councils. The councils have a range of options to fill vacant seats, including calling for a special election or developing a process to appoint a new council member. —Chris McGuinness

Full slate of women elected in Atascadero On the evening of Nov. 6, Atascadero City Council candidate Susan Funk was

at Kochi Korean BBQ. Around 8 p.m. the first vote-by-mail ballot numbers were released, and Funk announced the preliminary results—she was in second with 34 percent of the votes. The five crowded tables in the restaurant erupted in cheers and applause. She told New Times this was a victory for a whole group of people and the last canvassing effort and phone calls leading up to the evening were very important. “I told people, door after door, that I stepped up to run for City Council because I thought it was important that everybody in this community have a voice in the decisions that shape our future, and I intend to deliver on that,” Funk said. She is one of three women who will step onto the City Council dais in 2019, according to unofficial vote totals. City Council candidate Heather Newsom, a current Atascadero Parks and Recreation commissioner, was also elected to the City Council, according to unofficial vote totals. Heather Moreno, who ran unopposed for the position of Atascadero mayor, will become the city’s second elected mayor. Tom O’Malley was the first, elected in 2002 to the City Council and serving as mayor starting in 2006. Moreno is the founder and operator of Weight Breakthrough, a health and wellness consulting firm that she operates out of her home in Atascadero. Vote totals on Nov. 7 showed that Paso Robles re-elected incumbent Steven Martin as its mayor for a third time, and incumbent John Hamon and newcomer Maria Garcia were elected to the two open seats on the City Council. The San Miguel Community Services District will have Hector Palafox and Ashley Sangster as its newest board members. —Karen Garcia

Cunningham wins second term in state Assembly

Republican Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham will return to Sacramento to serve a second term with a win over Democratic Party challenger Bill Ostrander, according to unofficial voting totals. Cunningham, an attorney with a practice in Templeton, received 63,771 votes on Nov. 6, garnering 58.6 percent of the total vote. Ostrander, a SLO-based activist and former actor, received 44,967 votes, according to preliminary voting totals. “It feels great,” Cunningham told New Times. “It’s a real privilege to serve and represent the people of the Central Coast.” In addition to gaining the lion’s share of the vote, Cunningham raised significantly more money than his competitor for the 2018 election. According to data from the California Secretary of State, Cunningham raised more than $840,767 for his re-election. Ostrander, by comparison, raised more than $130,484. California’s 35th Assembly District encompasses both SLO and Northern Santa Barbara counties. Cunningham was first elected to office in 2016, beating out Dawn Otriz-Legg for the open 35th District seat previously filled by termed-out Republican Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian. During his 2018 bid for re-election, Cunningham touted his legislative achievements, including authoring bipartisan bills to fund grants for career and technical education programs, combating human trafficking, and securing funding to mitigate the

economic impact of the planned closure of the Diablo Canyon Power Plant in SLO County, all of which were passed by the state Legislature and signed into law. “I think the voters appreciate someone who is pragmatic,” Cunningham said. “They are looking for someone who is a problem solver and independent.” In his second term, Cunningham said he would work on issues to address the high cost of living on the Central Coast and continue to work on addressing concerns over the loss of jobs. —Chris McGuinness

Carbajal holds House seat for Democratic majority

Cheers filled a small downtown Santa Barbara restaurant as U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) climbed a staircase to address the crowd just after he was projected to win California’s 24th District for the U.S. House of Representatives for a second time. Supporters, Democratic Party organizers, and state and local representatives had a lot to celebrate, Carbajal told the crowd on Nov. 6. Their party won back a majority in the House from the Republican Party currently led by President Donald Trump. “What it means is that we finally have the tools and the checks and balance on an administration that has worked for the past two years to promote corruption and division instead of bringing us together,” he said. According to results released on election night, Carbajal held his seat with more than 96,000 votes across the entire 24th District, which includes Santa Barbara and SLO counties as well as portions of Ventura County. Republican challenger Justin Fareed, a businessman from Santa Barbara, saw more than 75,000 votes. At an election night party at the Far Western Tavern in Orcutt, Fareed addressed a crowd of supporters as early voting results showed Carbajal leading the 29-year-old in his second bid against the Democratic candidate. “It has been the honor of a lifetime to fight for you every single day,” Fareed said. “It would be my privilege and honor to be able to fight for us in Washington, D.C., … I just have to thank my family and friends from all over, from all walks of life, who have done so much to help us get to this point right here, right now.” Carbajal made no mention of Fareed in his victory speech, but instead said a Democratic majority will be able to protect health care, move forward comprehensive immigration reform, and address climate change. “For the past two years we saw nothing but division, we didn’t see much transparency, and we didn’t see much things getting done. The few things that we saw getting done were for the wealthiest 1 percent in this country,” Carbajal said. “So it’s high time we now start moving forward programs, legislation that take care of our working middle-class families.” —Joe Payne

County measure to ban fracking and oil drilling fails

In what was likely the most expensive election campaign ever waged in San Luis Obispo County, 55.7 percent of local voters

rejected Measure G, a proposed ban on fracking and oil expansion on county lands, according to unofficial election night results. After qualifying for the Nov. 6 ballot with more than 20,000 signatures, Measure G faced an opposition backed by $8 million from the oil and gas industry. At the core of the “no” campaign was the claim that the measure would shut down existing local oil operations—a message reinforced by innumerable mailers and advertisements that were pushed across the county. “We’re obviously pleased with the results,” said Matt Cunningham, spokesman for the No on G campaign. “We always thought if we presented voters with information about the real impacts of Measure G, they’d come to the right decision, and they did.” Measure G backers vociferously denied the measure would’ve shut down existing operations—arguing that it banned just new oil drilling and fracking—but Yes on G campaign co-chair Charles Varni told New Times his group lacked the resources to effectively counter their opponent’s rhetoric. “It scared people and it was all fundamentally based on mistruths that we did not have the capacity to respond to in a meaningful way,” Varni said, adding, “This really wasn’t an exercise in democracy. This was never a level playing field.” The fight over oil and gas in SLO County isn’t over. Varni said the organization that pushed the measure, The Coalition to Protect SLO County, is poised to challenge any proposed expansion of local oil production. “There will be no proposals made that we will not be challenging,” Varni said. “We are in the fight.” —Peter Johnson

Morro Bay City Council gets new members With the preliminary results of voteby-mail ballots, Morro Bay City Council candidates Jeff Heller and Dawn Addis are the frontrunners for the two open council seats. Addis, a teacher and co-founder of the Women’s March SLO, said the best advice that she found when starting her campaign was to focus on being authentic. “I decided to run as who I am, which is somebody who cares about our future, someone who is willing to speak up and work toward what we want, and somebody who is going to bring a broader vision into politics,” Addis said. For her, activism with the Women’s March has been about building a more positive and just future. It’s a sentiment that she’ll hold on to, she said, when collaborating on the City Council. “When you bring that to policy, it brings a human perspective to the policy that you’re drafting. So I plan to bring all of who I am to making forward-thinking decisions for our community,” she said. John Headding was holding a narrow lead for Morro Bay mayor with 51 percent against John Weiss, who’s in a close second with 48 percent, as of Nov. 7. In Cambria, newcomers Cindy Steidel and Donn Howell are in the lead for the two open Community Services District director seats. Incumbents Chuck Cesena and Matthew Pourchy are holding on to the two open seats for the Los Osos Community Services District. ∆ —Karen Garcia

Standoff SLO County employees threaten labor strike as pay lags: ‘Patience has worn out’

Editor’s Note: SLO County employees interviewed for this story were granted anonymity by New Times due to fear of retaliation.

T

he San Luis Obispo County Government Center shutters at 5 p.m., but many of its services don’t. Social workers remain on call all night to respond to reports of child abuse and domestic violence. Utility workers stand ready to be dispatched to fix a water line break, road issue, or flooding problem. But under a new contract, recently imposed on more than half of SLO County’s roughly 3,000 employees, compensation for these shifts has been dramatically reduced, according to workers and union leaders. The hourly rate to be on standby increased from $2.75 to $3—but the wages paid when employees are actually engaged in an emergency call were essentially cut in half, they say. The result is a workforce far less inclined to volunteer their private time for public good. “Everybody’s just been dropping out like flies,” said a county employee in Child Welfare Services. “The shifts are 15, 16 hours, and your stomach is in anxiety mode

wondering what’s going to happen. At 2 a.m. the police call, and now you’re dressed and out of the house and still expected to be at your job at 8 a.m. ... I want to do it for the kids, but the money is just not worth it.” Reduced pay for standby shifts is just one of the issues that the SLO County Employees’ Association (SLOCEA) has with its new 2018-19 contract, imposed on the 1,737-member union by the Board of Supervisors on Oct. 16 amid a negotiations stalemate. Another is salary. While the SLOCEA asked for a 3 percent raise—which was backed by an impartial fact finder—the county refused to budge from a final offer of a 0.5 percent raise in 2018-19 and a 2 percent raise in 2019-20, arguing financial limitations. When SLOCEA membership voted to reject that offer, the county declared an impasse and implemented the contract. Now, officials are working to avert a fullblown labor strike, which could empty out its workforce in the public services, supervisor, clerical, and trade units. Staffers who spoke with New Times said union leaders are currently collecting employee signatures in preparation for a strike. “That’s where it’s headed,” said a Social Services employee.

given an unexpected structural budget deficit and numerous other financial uncertainties, that it is necessary and appropriate to ‘tap the brakes’ on salary increases for one year,” an official county dissent to the fact finding stated. Supervisors voted unanimously to impose the first year of the contract on Oct. 16. Second District Supervisor Bruce Gibson told New Times, “I don’t like to do employee relations this way, but in this instance I felt it was necessary.” “As we get past the recession, employees told me they’re expecting salary increases. I get that. ... It’s expensive to live here,” Gibson said. “At the same time, we have hit another difficult budget patch here. Revenues have flattened out, our costs of providing services have gone up, plus we’ve had to address some things like the jail medical. I hope we can get SLOCEA units back to the table soon.” The majority of SLOCEA employees aren’t buying it. Between the marginal wage increase and new formula for standby compensation, one Social Services worker called the contract a pay cut. “It’s more than just we got an insulting amount of a raise; it’s really we didn’t get that. We got a cut,” the staffer said. “It’s just bad,” said another. “The morale is low for all of the social workers. … This is our families, our money, and our jobs we’re talking about. And they’re just like, ‘whatever.’” ∆

At the core of the dispute is, of course, money. The SLOCEA claims the county has plenty of it while the county asserts otherwise—citing expensive initiatives, like reforms at the county jail, and a murky overall fiscal future. Independent fact finders in the labor dispute have told the county to pony up. In a July 31 report, arbitrator R. Douglas Collins stated: “Here the county has not asserted an inability to meet the association’s request for a 3 percent acrossthe-board salary increase. Rather, the evidence establishes that the county is in a very strong financial position as compared to many public agencies in California.” The analysis also found that SLO employees are paid between 10 and 18 percent less than workers at comparable agencies. SLOCEA General Manager Pat McNamara told New Times that its members willingly made sacrifices during the lean years of the 2010 recession—but they’re refusing to accept them at this juncture. He confirmed the union is exploring a strike. “In past years when economics weren’t so good, there was a lot of patience there. The patience has worn out,” McNamara said. But county officials rebut that the economics are still dicey, and point out they’re contributing more to employee health care plans in the new contract. “The central fact underlying these negotiations is that the county’s elected Board of Supervisors determined,

Understanding students Lucia Mar begins the inner workings of becoming a trauma-informed school district

A

ccording to a 2015 report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than two-thirds of children in the U.S. reported experiencing at least one traumatic event by the age of 16. That could mean psychological, physical, or sexual abuse; community or school violence; witnessing or experiencing domestic violence; natural disasters or terrorism; commercial sexual exploitation; sudden or violent loss of a loved one; refugee or war experiences; military family-related stressors; physical or sexual assault; neglect; serious accidents; or a life-threatening illness. In order to help students overcome those traumas, public school districts are looking at services and practices to best address these students. Lucia Mar Unified School District is taking the initial steps to become trauma-informed and has created centers to provide services for students. Wendy Bruse is the district coordinator for Families in Transition, a program that aids students and their families with services and basic needs to support educational stability. Bruse is also head of the district’s current move toward becoming trauma-informed. To be trauma-informed, Bruse said, means to understand what the best practices

are for a student as a whole—figuring out why a student has certain behaviors or why their academic performance may be low. Understanding what the student is going through in their personal life could uncover a trauma that can be addressed. “If we’re seeing certain behaviors from a student, instead of shutting down those behaviors with just discipline, we look at how we can best work with that student,” she said. For example, Bruse said, if there is a student who is speaking out during class, a teacher might tell them, “I need you to stop talking,” and if the behavior continues, send them to the office. “Now, we’re asking people instead of just telling them what not to do, maybe give that student two minutes of your time every day and get to know that student on a different level,” she said. “And it has to be authentic, because kids can read right through everything.” There are some identifiers that the staff is advised to look for in students going through trauma: academics, attendance, test scores, and behavior. There are usually trends or patterns that staff can look to, Bruse said, to see if something’s going on with a student. If a student is experiencing homelessness, he or she may not be turning in their homework or regularly attending their

classes, resulting in poor grades. Bruse said when the teacher sees a pattern, he or she can approach the student and point them in the direction of the right services. Being trauma-informed is something that Pamela Vona can talk about all day. She is the program manager for the Treatment and Services Adaptation Center for Trauma in Schools, which promotes trauma-informed school systems that provide prevention and early intervention strategies to create supportive and nurturing school environments. The Los Angeles based-organization started after a man with mental illness who lived in an apartment across the street from 49th Street Elementary School (Los Angeles County Unified School District) opened fire on students in 1984 as they were dismissed from their classes. The shock and trauma of the event prompted LAUSD to establish the first formal policy requiring all schools and the district at-large to organize crisis intervention teams. Vona said that the crisis teams found that many students had experienced other forms of trauma in their personal lives. From there, the organization understood that there was a need for mental health support for students returning to school, restoring the emotional safety of school environment, and supporting the resumption of teaching and learning. Many school districts, Vona said, are moving in the trauma-informed direction to

he editorial staff members of New Times are used to answering questions about the paper from curious readers, but Nov. 2 was one of the first times they needed the help of a Russian translator to do it. That morning, the paper’s publishers, editors, and reporters hosted a delegation of journalists from Russia who’d been traveling around SLO County for the past week, meeting with elected officials, university professors, and local newspapers as part of a leadership exchange program sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives. “This is called citizen diplomacy,” said Bob Fonarow, the Paso Robles Rotarian who hosted the group during its stay in SLO County. Members of the delegation included Yevgeniya Potekhina, Yelena Burdovskaya, Nataliya Poplavskaya, Yevgeniy Belyanchikov, and Konstantin Alekseyev. They were joined by facilitator Pavel Bodrykh and translator Alexander Krainiy. The hour-long discussion between the two groups covered a range of topics, including freedom of the press, editorial independence, and the impact of the internet and social media on the journalism industry. “What I thought was interesting was that many of the questions they asked were

help their students but the key is the district as a whole needs to be on the same page. “I think the No. 1 first step and what we are really encouraging districts to do is universally across all school staff, there needs to be a formal training on how trauma is impacting our students,” she said. In order to assist those students, Nipomo and Arroyo Grande high schools created wellness centers on campus. These are hubs where students can voluntarily go for services that include mental health counseling, on-going counseling sessions, Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, suicide prevention, basic needs (school supplies, toiletries, or food), and medical nurses. The overall goal for the district is to be more mindful of all the elements in a child’s life. Vona said she urges that as much as districts focus on their students, they should also focus on their teachers. “There’s this tricky relationship where we want schools to become this setting where there is this consistency and predictability, those things that some of our kids aren’t getting in their family homes,” she said. When you have teachers who are significantly stressed out from their own lives, their own potential traumatic experiences, that’s also impacting how they behave and interact with students. Vona said those teachers are more likely to burn out and leave—maybe for a child this could be related to abandonment. When a teacher leaves, that could trigger trauma all over again. ∆

some of the same questions we get from the population at large here in San Luis Obsipo,” said New Times Editor Camillia Lanham. Joe Payne, managing editor of New Times’ sister paper, the Sun in Santa Maria, said he was also struck by how many topics of the conversation mirrored discussions and debates going on within the U.S media. “Many of the concerns that they had about changes in the industry are exactly what we talk about here in our newsroom and what the overall American print media culture in this country is discussing,” he said. “At the end of the day these folks are just trying to get papers out, update their websites, and inform and engage their readers.” The delegation’s visit was sponsored by the Open World Leadership Program, a congressionally operated exchange program that brings emerging leaders from Eurasian countries to the U.S. to meet and engage with government officials and other professionals. “The Open World Leadership Center administers the first and only international exchange agency in the U.S. legislative branch that is completely controlled by Congress,” the organization’s website states. “The founders of Open World were united in the belief that widespread, direct contact between American leaders and those of other nations would greatly

Human blowtorches Fire artists use bodies, props, and breathing to guide flames BY SPENCER COLE PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

D

on’t try this at home,” Shayne Mastriano says before guzzling down a mouthful of highly refined lamp oil. He’s careful not to swallow the liquid that his peers claim tastes like a combination of candle wax and coconut oil. Mastriano sidles over to join his troupe of fellow fire artists assembled in the backyard of a large house at the end of a cul de sac in Arroyo Grande. It’s sunset. And the fire artists are growing restless, even before they all filled their mouths with flammable oil. The group is well known across the Central Coast, from Santa Maria to San Luis Obispo, under the moniker Ignite Fire Dance—a name that has grown in stature over recent months. At the end of October, some of the troupe’s antics were featured on Comedy Central’s Tosh.O after a video of them went viral. They were filmed moving a ball of fire up a parking garage with nothing but their lungs, oil, and will power. “I feel like a lot of us have been doing this a long time, and I really wanted to see us come together as a performance troupe, and breathing has really done that,” member Johnathon Felch whispers as the group settles into place. It takes precision to breathe flames, let alone in coordination with multiple fuel sources and flame wielders. Most novices practice for months with water just to get the right technique down so they can successfully spray the liquid out as a fine mist. “You’re concentrating on the shape of your mouth, the position of your tongue, the pressure from your lungs, and creating tension with your core,” Mastriano explained moments earlier. “And you have to concentrate on your breathing because you can only breathe through your nose.” Safety is of the utmost importance, not just due to the risk of a random spotfire in a backyard or park, but also for each fire breather’s health. “The most dangerous part about breathing fire is not catching yourself on fire or anything like that,” Mastriano said. “It’s giving yourself chemical pneumonia through breathing in the unlit fuel vapors or molecules that get into your lungs.” Fortunately, this isn’t Mastriano’s, or anyone in attendance tonight for that matter, first rodeo. “Mm (1). Mmm (2). Mmmm (3),” Fire artist Levi Morin counts behind closed lips. Whoosh. Flames erupt from five mouths, forming an amorphous blob of fire and heat above their heads. The sound is reminiscent of a high powered blowtorch. “It’s a little bit more empowering [breathing fire],” Morin says, before wiping excess oil from his face. “Once you’ve played with fire, there’s levels of danger and satisfaction that are achieved with breathing it over just spinning props. It’s embracing your inner child, being a pyro, and of course, that big boom.” He makes an explosion gesture with his fists. “It’s like setting fireworks off in your backyard when you’re a kid.” Gwendolyn Hodgson, decked out in a Kitana costume from the video game Mortal Kombat, says she was drawn to fire artistry for myriad reasons, but in the end it came down to the comfort and peace it offered. “I just want to be able to dance and have fun and flow,” she says. “I kept wanting to perform and have community—be a part of something that’s deeply rooted—and this is something that helps me be comfortable in front of other people.” Samantha Jones, who goes by the stage name “Sami Kat,” understands such a perspective all too well. As a sword swallower and fire eater, it’s important to be comfortable and confident in yourself and the people around you, especially when you’re licking live flames out of existence. “It’s all about timing, and uh, saliva,” she explains, before demonstrating how to properly extinguish a burning torch with her tongue. “You definitely want to inhale before you ever eat because if you don’t, you get fire in your lungs, and well ... just don’t overthink it.” ∆ Contact Sun Staff Writer Spencer Cole from New Times’ sister paper at scole@santamariasun.com.

Quantum safety leap needed Highway 166 either needs modern passing lanes or to become a four-lane highway

F

or many years I have been aware of the extreme dangers on the narrow two-lane Highway 166 between Santa Maria and Bakersfield. It was good to see the Cuyama Valley speaking up in unison requesting help with this roadway. Because we own a small ranch in the Cuyama Valley, I frequently use this roadway. Back in 2004, the route was busy, but it has become extraordinarily hazardous since that time. I recall a trip I once took in the 1960s as I glanced up at the old road winding its way through the mountains in the upper reaches of the narrow canyon along the Cuyama River. My friend Tony had a part-time job driving for a moving company, and I had agreed to help him move a load of furniture for some folks to the small town of Taft on that extremely hot Saturday. The moving van that Tony drove took up more than its share of the road, which at times narrowed down to one lane. On the old road, the switchbacks were so severe that it seemed you could see the back of the van coming the other way as you made the turns. Travelers who needed a rest on this road could stop about halfway at the 20Mile Station, a small restaurant perched between the road and the river far below. The eatery had only a counter and stools, and on that day two hungry and hot movers made the best of it. Because of the road, it was a long trip and we returned in the late hours that night. Tony and I both went our separate ways to four-year colleges after attending

HODIN

Hancock College, and the old roadway took a quantum leap into the future when the state moved it to its current location. They knocked down entire mountains and moved the road to the canyon floor along the river bank. To meet the needs of a growing number of travelers and commerce, the old 20-Mile Station and harrowing switchbacks were abandoned. These changes were designed to meet the needs of a growing region. The quick movement of my wife, in the passenger seat, alerted me to the oncoming hazard that lay ahead. We had become lodged in a line of autos behind a slow moving truck, and some fool was going to pass on a solid no-passing line! We watched in horror as a car coming in the opposite direction emerged from over the hill. We were helpless! But luckily for us all, the impatient idiot made it back into his lane in the nick of time. This event was certainly enough danger for the one-hour trip to New Cuyama, but unfortunately, it repeated itself with three other impatient drivers testing their luck and everyone else’s as they gambled on the no-passing line and we headed through more blind hills, curves, and dips. As we passed the gas station in New Cuyama, it gave me great pleasure to see one of the four impatient drivers stopped by the highway patrol. However, added police enforcement is not the answer to this problem as police can’t be everywhere on this dangerous road. During all of these years no passing lanes have been added, and this is still one of the most dangerous

No straw November

Plastic pollution poses a growing threat to our oceans, coastlines, and waterways. To raise awareness about this issue, I authored Senate Concurrent Resolution 139, which proclaims the month of November as “No Straw November” in the state of California. Shelby O’Neil, Junior Ocean Guardian founder, created the No Straw November initiative for her 2017 Girl Scouts of America Gold Award Project. The initiative includes a pledge to refuse

single-use plastic straws during the entire month and to keep a tally of how many straws you eliminated from potentially ending up in the ocean. In the United States, there is an average of 200 pounds per person of plastic waste created each year. From the time plastic production took off in the 1950s until now, more than 8 billion tons of plastic have been produced; of that amount, 6.3 billion tons have been discarded; and of that amount, only 9 percent has been recycled. The equivalent of a full dump truck of plastic enters global oceans every minute. Plastic does not biodegrade. While it may break down into smaller pieces over time, it never goes away. Scientists are finding plastic all over the ocean, from polar ice caps, to gyres, to the stomachs of marine life. An estimated 700 species of marine animals have been reported to have eaten or become entangled in plastic. Many companies and cities have joined in the effort to reduce the usage of not only single-use plastic straws, but other single-use plastics as well. Starbucks, Alaska Airlines, Disney, and Hyatt Hotel are a few of the large corporations that have made commitments to reduce their plastic footprint, and the cities of San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, and Carmel have instituted “straws upon request” policies or bans. There are many ways you can help to reduce plastic pollution. Pass up drinks in single-use plastic bottles and avoid LETTERS continued page 14

Renew the Land and Water Conservation Fund America’s most successful conservation and recreation program expired on Sept. 30.

Hips, shoulders, knees, and pros.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) was first passed in 1965 and has always enjoyed bipartisan support. It has funded local projects like development on the Bluff Trail in Montaña de Oro State Park and the Lopez Lake Recreation Area. In total, LWCF has funded more than 1,600 projects across California, including baseball fields, hiking trails, wildlife refuges, and more. Congress needs to get with the program and renew the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which has done so much here in San Luis Obispo County, as well as throughout the country.

We need to look toward the future

Back in the day, when 90 percent of the population were homeowners, houses cost under $200,000, Cal Poly and Cuesta’s enrollment was half of what it is today, homelessness was not in crisis mode, and no one had even heard of climate change or global warming, San Luis Obispo’s mayors Ken Schwartz, Allen Settle, and Dave Romero could never have imagined the situation the city of San Luis Obispo and the planet would find themselves in today. Their endorsements of T. Keith Gurnee demonstrated their loyalty to their friend and former student from more than 40 years ago, as well as their nostalgia for the “good old days.” While

I respect these gentlemen very much, have benefited from their endorsement for mayor now and then, and was honored to serve with them on City Council, I disagreed with their choice for Mayor. Mr. Gurnee was looking out of the rear-view mirror and making promises of overturning state housing law, based on magical thinking. Neither he, nor anyone, can turn back the clock. Mayor Harmon is looking out of the front windshield, looking to the very challenging future that she and young people must deal with. Jan Marx former mayor SLO

I love my kids and opposed Measure G

I found the SLO Tribune editorial endorsing Measure G (“You’d do anything for your kids right? Then vote yes on Measure G,” Oct. 19) to be insulting and offensive. The Tribune can endorse any position it wants—although I disagreed with the paper’s stance and voted “no” on Measure G. What was truly offensive was The Tribune’s appalling claim that how someone votes on Measure G is a moral judgment on how much they love their children. I have a news flash for the SLO Tribune: You can love your children and still be opposed to Measure G. That editorial was cheap pandering that insulted readers’ intelligence, and it ought LETTERS continued page 16

to be beneath a newspaper editorial page. I have three children, and I was opposed to Measure G because it was a poorly drafted initiative that would negatively impact the county. The language would have made it impossible for existing oil and gas production to continue—and that was bad for the children whose parents could have lost those good-paying jobs. It would have been bad for children whose schools could have lost out on the tax revenues generated by oil and gas production in SLO County. I have friends who were on both sides of the Measure G question. We were able to respectfully disagree without questioning each others’ love for our kids. Next time, The Tribune’s editorial page should keep the children out of it. Jim Folkrod Arroyo Grande

Hills votes were not ‘temporary’

In New Times’ article “AG Mayor can’t vote on Brisco,” (June 28) Mayor Jim Hill dismissed his previous votes and actions on the Brisco project as “temporary.” Actually, there were and are permanent results from his votes and extensive participation in this issue. Early on, the Brisco subcommittee and ultimately the council agreed to delete (permanently) the traffic signal option for the Brisco on/off ramp that was significantly less expensive and used less land. Cal Trans indicated that doing so would speed up the environmental review

and move the project forward; actually, it took another 2.5 years. This reduced our choices to: improving the on/off ramps at Grande and Camino Mercado or going with the controversial and more expensive off-ramps with roundabouts. In fact, Mayor Hill advocated for eliminating even the roundabouts option at the subcommittee level. Fortunately, he was unsuccessful, otherwise we would have only one choice, the one favored in his neighborhood. That’s why after one of these council discussions I suggested that he get advice directly from the FPPC on any conflict of interest. Previous mayors have done so successfully in the past when similar concerns were raised, but the rules have changed, and Mayor Hill lives much closer to the project. Mayor Hill’s votes and actions inserted yet another level of doubt into the middle of a long and expensive process on a key decision about the future of the city of Arroyo Grande. Jim Guthrie former City Council member Arroyo Grande

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AL FONZI

A century ago A hundred years ago this Sunday, Nov. 11, the cataclysmic “Great War” (the “war to end all wars,” aka, The First World War or World War I) came to a close as the warring powers signed an armistice at 5 a.m. However, the armistice would not take effect until 11 a.m., which meant life or death for thousands of soldiers. (A formal peace treaty, the Treaty of Versaille, would not be signed until June 28, 1919.) Until another even greater war occurred barely 20 years later, the First World War was likely the bloodiest war in human history. The slaughter took place on an industrial scale never before experienced by humanity. Unfortunately, many generals were tied to the past and failed to recognize the revolutionary effect technology was to play during war in the 20th century. WWI introduced not just the field telephone but wireless radio communications that outpaced the ability of any “runner” or military aide’s ability to send or receive messages from a commander to subordinates. It also introduced not only the airplane, but its use as “flying artillery” capable of bombing or strafing enemy positions far to the rear of front lines. It also introduced the use of poison gas, tanks, and the submarine.

Most importantly for war on land, it introduced the machine gun, which was, next to rapid-firing artillery, the greatest innovation for killing on the battlefield. When integrated into defensive or offensive operations, the effect of these weapons was decisive on the battlefield. World War I began in the first week of August 1914; by the end of October 1914, more than 325,000 combatants from all sides had been killed in action with three times that number wounded. Instead of a war of maneuvering, vast armies with hundreds of divisions of troops (an average division consists of 10,000 to 15,000 men) had been mobilized, bogged down in a 600-mile-long trench system across western and central Europe and fed into a grinder that crushed men’s souls. The generals failed to learn and insisted that old tactics need not change, just urge the men forward. Disaster upon disaster became names associated with needless loss of life, such as Gallipoli, the 1915 amphibious invasion of the Dardanelle’s (300,000 casualties); the Somme in July 1916, where the British Army lost 60,000 men in a single morning between 8 and 11 a.m.; and Verdun in 1916, where virtually every French division served at one time or another and the souls of more than 600,000

French and German soldiers were lost. On the Russian front, casualties mounted into the millions as the Russian czar’s generals herded Russian peasants into murderous machine-gun fire without regard for common sense, let alone strategy. On the southern front, Italian generals employed brutal discipline against their own troops, who were fighting Austrian troops in the Alps, hauling disassembled cannons up sheer mountain cliffs to create avalanches to bury their Austrian counterparts. The war was truly global, with 200,000 Vietnamese troops providing battalions to the French on the Western Front and colonial troops fighting on behalf of their colonial masters in East Africa and the Arabian Desert. A Vietnamese soldier of note with the French on the Western Front was the future Ho Chi Minh, who led his people to drive out the French from his homeland in Indochina and would later wage a 10-year war against America and South Vietnam. As America mobilized for war in 1917, we also fought a hidden enemy in the form of the 1918 influenza epidemic, a pandemic that eventually killed more than 200 million people worldwide. American troops were especially susceptible. Of the 116,000 American fatalities in WWI, 53,513 were battle deaths but 63,195 succumbed to disease, mostly influenza. It was so virulent that a soldier would show symptoms at 6 p.m. and be dead before 6 a.m.

the next morning. At Fort Devens in Massachusetts, soldiers in training died at the rate of 100 per day during the pandemic’s peak. The German Army was also affected; their March 1918 offensive ground to a halt when they exhausted their reserve divisions, which had been decimated by influenza, allowing the Allies to regain the initiative and launch a counter-offensive. Although the armistice was signed at 5 a.m. on Nov. 11, no order was given to cease combat operations before it was to take effect at 11 a.m. As a result, for the next six hours, every gun on the Western Front continued to fire, (literally millions of rounds) as hundreds of thousands of soldiers continued to fight and “go over the top” in last-minute offensives ordered by the military high command. America lost another 3,200 soldiers during the last six hours of WWI with the last American soldier killed at 10:59 a.m. Remember the sacrifices made by those soldiers of the Great War and all the ones that followed this Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018, at the many memorials throughout the county. Join us and help keep their memory alive and remember the terrible cost of war. ∆ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

The Shredder

Roar and whimper W hew. I’m glad that’s over. Now, who’s ready for 2020? I know. I need to chill the eff out. We haven’t even recovered from Nov. 6, 2018, yet. The blue wave we were promised crested just short of the beach because of that red tide. The donkeys will be fully in charge of the U.S. House of Representatives starting in January 2019 but those hard-charging elephants get to keep the Senate, and the heffalump that’s in the White House still has a friend to lean on. Meanwhile the national media— “THE MEDIA”—is all a titter about how America’s political split is more entrenched than ever. Geezus guys, could you be anymore dramatic? You’re giving all us local newsies a bad name, and we’re the ones who have to deal directly with the angry people of the world. If I hear about the culture war one more time, I swear! I don’t know what I’ll do! But I’ll let you know when I figure it out. Let’s face it, the Senate was a long shot. Racism is alive and well. And Trump wants to end birthright citizenship, which could mean that the future baby Shredder won’t get to be an American citizen because I was made in China. #Sad! Current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) promised an “open and transparent” Democratic Congress on the night of Nov.

6. I’m not so sure that I believe her—but I want to. Let me lay out the way the next two years will go: Bonkers 2.0. To those of you who were hoping that things would get better in 2019, I’m going to predict that things will get worse. But calm down! Let’s turn that frown upside down. Things always have to get worse before they get better. Look on the bright side: In SLO County, we’ve proven that money does matter! Got $8 million to throw at a campaign? Well, you can win by 10 percentage points. The unprecedented onslaught of red and black advertising that accompanied the oil company-backed No on Measure G campaign seemed to do the trick. All it took was $3 million more than the industry spent to unsuccessfully block a similar measure in Monterey County. Now we (and by “we,” I mean “they”) can make even more money off the oil beneath our feet! Let fracking ring!! The day after the election, on Nov. 7, SLO County announced that the Department of Justice (DOJ) was investigating the medical and mental health care at the jail. County Counsel Rita Neal clarified that there is a difference between the DOJ investigation that just opened and the FBI investigation that was announced in April 2017. The FBI is only looking at the death of Andrew Holland, who died in custody of a blood clot after

being strapped to a chair for almost 48 hours in January 2017. The DOJ is looking more holistically at the care being provided to inmates in custody at the jail. Either way, there are a whole lot of acronyms investigating our jail. The 13 people who have died since Sheriff Ian Parkinson was elected in 2011 probably have something to do with the DOJ sniffing around, but thanks for the clarification, Rita. It doesn’t really matter, because SLO County’s just fine with all of this. Parkinson was resoundingly re-elected this past June after all those deaths had already happened. Go us! At least some SLO County cities elected a slew of women to take seats on local elected bodies! Even if it is the same number of women that we elected to local office in 2014 (22), females will be the majority on city councils in San Luis Obispo and Atascadero! Each city council will have four females sitting on them at the beginning of 2019!! Grover Beach is coming in hot, too, with at least three ladies on the dais! Heidi Harmon kicked T. Keith Gurnee’s ass in the mayoral race in SLO, thanks in no small part to the extremely influential role of the fairminded folks over at CalCoastNews! That MEDIA outlet has kindly been a free speech bastion for Gurnee’s (let’s

call them spirited) rants and raves on the website since forever. The blog ran a “poll” in October that allegedly showed Gurnee with a “slight lead” over Harmon, who ended up trouncing him by more than 22 points. Looks like CalCoast is about as good at conducting accurate polls at it is at defending itself against libel lawsuits. The “news” organization also helped Arroyo Grande Mayor Jim Hill to a similar victory. He’s been bitching and moaning about his opponents via the CalCoast blog since he got elected, and it looks like all those very confusing sentences paid off. Hill lost to Caren Ray (according to unofficial results, of course)! Maybe I’m being too harsh, but I don’t feel that bad for the site after it ran a whiny, self-pitying rant (rave?) on award-winning Tribune journalist and New Times alumnus Matt Fountain. Fountain’s commitment to well-reported stories backed up by facts and solid sourcing is the reason why he gets the adulation that CalCoast thinks it’s entitled to. It’s kind of like people who think they’re entitled to the government they want, but then they don’t vote. More than 172,000 SLO County residents registered to vote. About half actually voted. The whole situation is ugly and will likely get uglier before it gets pretty—but that’s politics 2018-style, baby. ∆ The shredder may be from China but is a naturalized citizen at shredder@newtimesslo.com

Blooming Rose

CONFESSIONAL Singer-songwriter Ynana Rose will play her country, honkytonk, folk, and Gypsy jazz originals on Nov. 10, at Painted Sky Studios, where she’s releasing her new album, Tea Leaf Confessions.

Ynana Rose releases her stunning new album Tea Leaf Confessions

T

ea Leaf Confessions, the new Americana album by local singersongwriter Ynana Rose, draws deep from the Central Coast’s creative brain trust with engineering and mixing by Damon Castillo, who also plays electric and resophonic guitars and electric bass on several tracks, not to mention a cowriting credit on “Mendocino Moonrise” and co-credit for writing harmonies and arrangements. Castillo, however, is only the tip of the talent iceberg. On various tracks, you’ll hear Kenny Blackwell on mandolin and acoustic lead guitar, Bill Flores on dobro and pedal steel, Dylan Johnson on upright bass, Paul Griffith on drums, Kristian Ducharme on Wurlitzer B3 organ and piano, Erin Inglish on banjo, Brynn Albanese on violin, Duane Inglish on accordion, and Bob Liepman on cello, among others. Holly Ann Lewis provides harmony vocals. Another song is co-written by Steve Key. It’s who you know, right? This gang represents some of the best musicians we have to offer, and Ynana Rose’s new CD also features photography and art direction from Barry

Goyette. It’s a thoroughly professional package … dare I say amazing! Of course, the star of the show is Ynana Rose, whose handsome voice and emotionally resonant songs take center stage. “Stardust Firefly” celebrates our individual shining light as we grow old and die: “When I was young, I burned with desire/ A craving for everything/ Now I am old, low burns the fire/ In the dying light I sing … I’ll be flying so high/ So don’t you cry, little firefly.” All told, the 40-minute disc contains 11 songs, all originals with the exception of Lefty Frizzell’s “I Want To Be With You Always,” which lazily swings along like a skiff floating down a river. One of my favs is the bustling “Impossible,” which features Cafe Musique members Brynn Albanese and Duane Inglish: “Kiss me hard, but don’t ask me to stay/ I’m leaving a part of me here anyway/ In the violin strings of yesterday’s/ Impossible love.” Ynana Rose—joined by Paul Griffith, Dorian Michael, and Dylan Johnson—plays her album release party at Cambria’s Painted Sky Studios this

SALUTE! A TRUMPET TRIBUTE TO VETERAN’S DAY: SCHOLARSHIP BENEFIT CONCERT

Saturday, Nov. 10 (8 p.m.; all ages; $20 at Boo Boo Records in SLO, Ball & Skein in Cambria, or by calling (805) 927-8330). “I am fascinated by the resiliency of the human heart,” Ynana said in press materials, “and this album celebrates our vulnerability and infinite capacity for love. These songs are the confessions of ghosts and muses, born of a deep love for the Earth and our crazy tribe, and the

support of my loving family. Each song deals with love in some way: love for a person, for nature, the self-love required to heal and forgive, joy, heartache. Many of them speak to the duality of loss and gratitude: how our brief time on the Earth has the potential to make us more fully present.”

Presented by the SLO County Trumpet Alliance. The program will include patriotic and military music to commemorate Veterans Day. Collected donations will go to support the Trumpet Alliance’s scholarship program. Nov. 11, 3-5 p.m. Free; donations accepted at the door. 805-550-1192.

Delicate creatures SLO Rep brings Tennessee Williams’ Glass Menagerie to the stage

W

ild animals aren’t meant to be captive. And yet, from city to city, we cram ourselves into tiny boxes. The San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre explored the paradox of vulnerable people yearning for something more, on opening night of playwright Tennessee Williams’ classic memory play, The Glass Menagerie, on Nov. 2. The 1944 play is Williams’ most autobiographical play, and it launched the writer from obscurity to fame. SLO Rep’s rendition is led by Pacific Conservatory Theatre’s (PCPA) Eric Stein. The main characters, Tom Wingfield (Luke Myers) and Laura Wingfield (Madison Shaheen), along with their mother, Amanda Wingfield (Suzy Newman), are heavily based on the oncecloseted Williams, whose real name was Thomas; his mentally unstable older sister, Rosie; and their overbearing mother. “The Glass Menagerie is about desire and desperation,” Stein wrote in the program’s director’s note. “Tennessee Williams said it best when he said that these are ‘deeply felt emotions that must be kept at arm’s length.’” The entirety of the play (which runs close to three hours, including intermission) takes place in the Wingfields’ dreary, small apartment in St. Louis in 1937. Tom, an aspiring writer, works unhappily in a shoe factory to support his mom and sister. Their father abandoned the family years ago. Each character finds escapism from their sad, shared reality in different ways. Tom is constantly running off to the “movies” at all hours of the night. Laura drifts off into a world of makebelieve, obsessed with her collection of tiny glass animals. And Amanda reminisces over and over again of the years when she was a sought-after young woman while scheming to find a husband for her daughter, who has not had one gentleman caller in the six long years since graduating high school.

A UNICORN Crippled and shy, Laura (Madison Shaheen) spends much of her time at home playing with her collection of glass animals.

On stage

The Glass Menagerie will show at the SLO Repertory Theatre through Nov. 18. Tickets range from $20 to $36. Visit slorep.org for more information.

The trio of PCPA alums Myers, Shaheen, and SLO Rep’s Newman create a thick haze of sadness, tension, and hope that just can’t be bridged to find their way back to one another again. After much badgering from his mother, Tom brings home a friend from work, Jim O’Conner (Sam Lariviere, making his SLO Rep debut), to meet his sister. Unbeknownst to all is the fact that Laura had a crush on Jim, who was the popular boy back when they were in high school. Sensing her insecurities, Jim sweetly encourages Laura to think better of herself. He provides her with some hope but ultimately more disappointment. But Laura, whose real-life counterpart was diagnosed with schizophrenia and institutionalized after a botched lobotomy, is different from other girls, as Tom tries to explain to their mother.

Arts Writer Ryah Cooley isn’t much of a collector. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

WISHING With all her heart, Amanda (Suzy Newman) wants a gentleman caller-turned-husband for her unusual daughter, Laura (Madison Shaheen).

SLO Women’s Connection hosts annual luncheon

The SLO Women’s Connection holds its annual Country Fair Luncheon on Tuesday, Nov. 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Madonna Inn Garden Room.

This luncheon is sponsored by Stonecraft Ministries. Call (805) 489-6859 for more information. ∆ —Caleb Wiseblood

“She lives in a world of her own,” Tom said. “A world of … little glass ornaments … .” Laura’s collection isn’t just a nod to the show’s title, but a working metaphor for the entire Wingfield clan. They, like Laura’s tiny glass creatures, are delicate and in danger of breaking, trapped in a world not of their own design or choosing, in a place that feels unnatural. In the opening scene of The Glass Menagerie, Myers as Tom breaks the fourth wall to speak directly to the audience. While this is Williams’ story, he acknowledges that the lines between memory and truth are blurry. “The scene is memory and is therefore nonrealistic,” Tom said. “Memory takes a lot of poetic license. It omits some details; others are exaggerated, according to the emotional value of the articles it touches, for memory is seated predominantly in the heart.” ∆

LONESOME IN A CROWD Despite living in a small, cramped apartment together, family members Laura (Madison Shaheen, left), Tom (Luke Myers, center) and Amanda (Suzy Newman, right) struggle to connect in The Glass Menagerie.

on’t fly too close to the sun. It’s good, solid advice that expands far beyond the moral of the cautionary tale it came from, of Icarus and his desire to fly higher and higher, giving in to his own hubris and paying the ultimate price. What if there were more to the story than that? In a whimsical rendition, Cal Poly professor Al Schnupp reimagines the classic myth in his original play, Trust Fall, which debuted at Cal Poly’s Spanos Theatre Nov. 1. The tale is broken up into six scenes and features puppet interludes as well as the artistic use of overhead projectors to break up the dramatic tragedy that unfolds onstage. Trust Fall marks a retiring Schnupp’s last production at Cal Poly. Daedalus (Aiden Turner), the famous Athenian sculptor and inventor, lives a relatively quiet life with his simpleminded but observant son, Icarus (Romelo Urbi), who is obsessed with chickens. The monotony is broken up by Daedalus’ saucy model, muse, and housekeeper, Lydia (Marie Althaus), and his art agent, the cunning Takus (William Murphy). A love hidden under witty remarks and minor arguments brews between Daedalus and Lydia, though both Turner and Althaus

do an excellent job at portraying lovers in denial. The audience is also treated to a fantastical imagining of the adventures chickens have at night, according to Icarus. This is accomplished by actors moving images about on projectors, in an almost balletic sequence. Puppet interludes of various Greek stories also move the plot along, while providing context and comedic relief for the audience. And while chickens are Icarus’ first love, he soon moves on to other birds and even yearns to go on adventures with Takus, saying, “I love chickens, but stories live longer,” a nod to Icarus’ own immortality in our cultural zeitgeist. But the story truly begins to come to a simmer when Daedalus receives an unusual visitor at his home, King Minos of Crete (Sabrina Harris). The flamboyant ruler comes with an odd request. As punishment for not sacrificing his prize bull, Zeus made Minos’ wife fall madly in

love with said animal. In an effort to be open-minded and ensure marital bliss, Minos wants Daedalus to sculpt a hollow calf for his wife to climb into so she can, ahem, mate with the bull. This results in the birth of a human-killing minotaur, which leads Minos to commission a labyrinth from Daedalus that no one can escape from—until someone does. Our tale comes to a full on boil when Minos aims his rage at Daedalus and Icarus.

And here is where we find the duo in the familiar spot, the part of the story we all know. Imprisoned and hopeless, Icarus looks to the sky for inspiration and hope. But in Trust Fall’s version of events, we find not a boy who thought too much of his abilities, but a human yearning to be free. ∆ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley recognizes birds for the tiny dinosaurs that they are.

Champions! B ryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men, Superman Returns) directs this biopic about Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek) and Queen, chronicling the band’s rise to super stardom, Mercury’s solo career and AIDS diagnosis, and their triumphant reunion and spellbinding performance at the 1985 Live Aid concert. (134 min.)

Glen The criticisms you’ve heard are all true: The film’s chronology is inaccurate, it skips over or condenses much of Queen’s history, its PG-13 rating sanitizes the story, and star Rami Malek’s prosthetic overbite teeth are distracting. But none of that stops Bohemian Rhapsody from being an engaging, joyous, and highly entertaining film. Original Queen band members Brian May (guitar, voice) and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals) are executive music producers on the film, so you’re hearing original recordings … and the music is fantastic, including small moments when Freddie is quietly singing to himself recording sessions for the Live Aid concert. I’m not 100 percent sure, but I thought I caught a glimpse of May and Taylor as extras in the Live Aid scenes, sitting like roadies in the scaffolding of the stage, watching the show from above. The film opens with Freddie’s triumphant entrance on the stage of Live Aid, looking out at the sea of 90,000 people packed into Wembley Stadium. You really get a sense of just how huge Queen was in their heyday. Then the film cuts back to Freddie with his disapproving family as he goes out to see his favorite band, Smile, which included May and Taylor, who eventually become his Queen bandmates. From there, the film chronicles Queen’s slow rise to superstardom, Freddie’s marriage to Mary Austin (Lucy Boynton), his ill-fated solo career, his descent into personal chaos, his AIDS

diagnosis, and the eventual reunification of Queen. It’s quite a tale. Anna It’s a big story of a truly complicated figure, an icon, and legend. Malik steps up to the task to play the both larger-than-life and painfully human Freddie Mercury, who was a tornado of talent and a lost boy at the same time. He was born in Zanzibar and raised in India before moving to Britain, and his parents are portrayed as conservative and concerned with Freddie’s rock ’n’ roll tendencies—his flamboyant and over-the-top performances, a source of shame. Bohemian Rhapsody is not a detailed and wholly accurate portrait of Mercury’s life, but I think it wasn’t meant to be. To stay within the confines of a PG-13 rating means glossing over some of the more scandalous moments of drug use and wild sexual affairs, but anyone remotely familiar with Mercury’s life can fill in the gaps pretty easily. While I personally would have preferred an R rating and a deeper dive into the nittygritty, I understand the filmmaker’s hope for a wider audience. I can see where the sweeping storyline could be frustrating to diehard fans with a lot of knowledge of the details, but for casual Queen fans

like myself I think it works just fine. If anything, it made me want to hunt down a good biography of the group and get those juicy bits in long form. Like you said, the music in this film is amazing— I’ll be singing out “Galileo! Galileo!” for days, and the access to all those original recordings really elevates this film’s soundtrack. Glen To call Freddie Mercury “complicated” may be a bit of an understatement. He’s clearly torn between cultures, confused by his sexuality, and vacillating between utter confidence and crippling self-doubt. Icarus-like, he flies too close to the spotlight, losing sight of what’s important. He ruins his marriage. His relationship with hanger-on Paul Prenter (Allen Leech), who’s essentially the film’s villain, is almost Freddie’s downfall. The film takes big liberties with the facts regarding Paul and Freddie, but in service to the plot, it’s a pivotal aspect of the story as Freddie reclaims his soul and returns to his family, Queen. Like a lot of musical acts, the whole of Queen was more vital and important than its individual members, and as a story of a rock band, Bohemian Rhapsody delivers a dramatic ride. Queen’s music and lyrics are deftly woven into the story—the songs reflect what Freddie and the band were

going through at the time. In addition to effective performances by the principals, the film is loaded with spot-on smaller roles filled with top-notch actors such as Tom Hollander as lawyer and eventual manager Jim Beach and Mike Myers as Ray Foster, the man who lost Queen over creative differences just as they were poised for superstardom. Set aside your picked nits and sit back and soak up this uplifting ride. Yes, the film is flawed. So was Freddie Mercury, but that didn’t make him any less of a legendary rock star! Anna Bohemian Rhapsody is one of those films that just works better on the big screen. The scope of the audience at Live Aid is astounding and the massive sound that Queen created deserves a system that can do it justice. Critics can point out flaws in the film and storyline all they want, but I suspect the rest of the audience will have a lot of fun ignoring them and immersing themselves in the music for a couple of hours. Mercury’s failing health and fade from the limelight is melancholy, but the epic performance at Live Aid is a joyous rise back to the top for Mercury. It’s epic! ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

The Palm Writer-director Rupert Everett stars as Oscar Wilde in this biopic that recalls the writer’s unusual life, with Colin Firth starring as Wilde’s friend Reggie Turner, Emily Watson as his long-suffering wife Constance, and Colin Morgan as his lover Lord Alfred Bosie Douglas. Everett clearly has a passion for his subject, which comes across with the same ironic detachment the Irish poet and playwright was known for. The film’s title and the film itself are dripping with Wilde’s well-established irony. On his deathbed in Paris, Wilde looks back on his amazing life—its successes and excesses, his incredible rise and tragic fall.

up to the actions of a lonely war vet simply trying to reintroduce himself to civilian life. The device works brilliantly, especially on the unsuspecting Petersons. David offers each member something they deeply need but are somehow lacking in their own lives. The filmmakers do a good job in exploring how we are tricked by our own latent desires, whether they be sexual, maternal, fraternal, or something else. The mother sees a lost boy like her own son; her daughter sees a dangerous sexual force who can deliver something more than men like her unmotivated and deeply boring boyfriend. The young son, grappling with his own sexuality, experiences the raw exhilaration of unchained hyper masculine brutality David shows him for the first time. The father finally finds a sympathetic ear for his tedious problems at his white-collar job. Stevens, far removed from his days as the swoon-worthy Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey, is an absolute master at his craft; his David is sexual and innocent, deadly and weak, and charming and terrifying all in the same bat of an eye. He has taken a cartoon version of a villain (the twists are pretty laughable at times) and morphed him into a monster on par with some of the best in movie history. While The Guest might have some problems with plot (the ending is a bit predictable although gloriously staged and shot), it’s a brilliant and refreshing twist on a classic genre.

Knightley stars as Sugar Plum and regent of the Land of Sweets! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the film does tell a story, with some ballet interludes, of course, that feature prima ballerina Misty Copeland. Visually, this is a feast for the eyes. There are several twists and turns for even those familiar with the story from the ballet. They’re easy enough to spot, thanks to some heavy handed foreshadowing, but I won’t spoil the journey for those planning on viewing the film. Suffice it to say that after entering this magical world, Clara quickly realizes that her PHOTO COURTESY OF METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER

The movie also gets a thumbs up for making Clara an inventor and problem solver—not a girl longing for a doll for Christmas—trying to figure out the puzzle her mom left behind. This is also one of the less white versions of the Nutcracker that I’ve seen, with Freeman as Clara’s godfather, Fowora-Knight as her loyal companion and guide, black American ballerina Copeland starring in the ballet interludes, and people of color in the mix for background roles and dancers. It’s about time, Disney! If you’re looking for a little wonder and a shot of Christmas cheer, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms will do the trick to kick off the holiday season.

and Michael Shannon as two siblings who are brought together by their mother’s increasing signs of dementia and the urgency to provide her proper care. Bridget (Swank) returns to her family in Chicago from California after her mother, Ruth (Blythe Danner), unknowingly walks into a blizzard in the middle of the night, wearing nothing more than her nightgown and a coat, and boards a train. After an urgent phone call in the middle of the night from her brother, Nick (Shannon), Bridget makes the trip with her daughter, Emma (Taissa Farmiga), who was recently kicked out of her dorm for drinking alcohol on campus. When Bridget reaches her parents’ home, her short-tempered brother already has an application filled out and ready for her to sign that would put their mother in a memory center that’s designed to care for people experiencing dementia. Because their father, Burt (Robert Forster), can live in an assisted living facility just 15 yards away from his wife in the memory center, Nick feels like it’s the best option. That’s when the yelling matches start between Nick and Burt, as Burt stubbornly cannot give in to the idea of living without Ruth. He constantly insists that he can care for his wife and they’re perfectly fine where they are. Burt believes in the devout commitment of marriage, “till death do us part,” and he intends on caring for Ruth until the bitter end. All the while Ruth is forgetting who Burt is, how old she is, and repeating stories she’s told two minutes ago. As Ruth has blips in time when she understands what’s happening to her, the family flashes in and out of the underlying issues they have with one another. Burt can’t recognize his son for being the owner and operator of his own bar; instead he belittles him. Bridget is severely unhappy with her dull marriage that she believes she was forced into. The lack of freedom to choose her path ultimately spills onto her daughter, who she’s forcing to go to college even though that might not be what Emma wants. Of course, making living arrangements

The film does an amazing job of lingering on old family photos and home videos of past memories that Ruth and Burt shared and mixing in vivid scenes of the couple presently—Ruth forgetting who she’s sleeping next to as she wanders the halls of their condo. This film is one of few (Away From Her and Still Alice) that notably depict the progression of dementia. It not only focuses on the illness but the family surrounding it. It works because it has its sad moments that highlight Ruth’s memory decline among the very light-hearted moments of a real family.

First-time director Dano does a brilliant job creating an understated gem and coaxing out a career-defining performance from Mulligan.

Coffee

Wholesome meets fast Sally Loo’s new window satisfies your need for speed (and caffeine)

M

ost grab-and-go food procured from a window is not, indeed, “wholesome.” You might expect a mess of late-night tacos, a grease-soaked bag of fries, or that long-awaited cheatday milkshake, but perhaps not a freshly made organic blueberry muffin and a hot cup of locally roasted espresso with almond milk latte art. Even in SLO—where fast food drivethrus are banned—there is one window open. It’s a walk-up window, but hey, it still serves the same purpose. Get in, get out, and get on with your life. Yes, Sally Loo’s Wholesome Cafe, known for its elaborate, farm-fresh breakfast and lunch offerings, quirky art on the walls, and third wave coffee, is aiming to make your morning commute a little tastier and a whole lot quicker. A full menu of coffee offerings and baked goods made in-house are now available at the new grab-and-go window located just outside of the 1804 Osos St. location. Owner Jen Fullarton should know a thing or two about the need to get caffeinated and get going. You could say that her move from LA to SLO can be credited to the mind-numbing nuisance that is rush-hour traffic. “I was working in market research after business school and didn’t like my job or commuting from Santa Clarita to Studio City,” she said of the major relocation to come. “My commute was 45 minutes, sometimes an hour each way. Life is too short to spend it sitting in your car.” As the 24-year-old considered what she’d rather be doing with her one precious life, a reoccurring dream surfaced. “I knew, deep down, that if I really did what I wanted to do, I would work in a restaurant and cook, but I had no experience at all. I also always dreamed of owning a coffee shop, too. I fell in love with coffee at 16, when I was able to drive myself around and visit different shops; that was what my friends and I did for fun,” she said. Romance initially brought Fullarton to SLO, but she stayed for the strong sense of community and foodie allure. A fortuitous meeting with Kendra Aronson, local author of the SLO Farmers’ Market Cookbook, set the soon-to-be SLOcal on the right path. “She recommended I talk to Sally Loo’s; I already loved Sally Loo’s, so I went for it. Two weeks later, in October 2016, I had put in my notice at my old job and planned to move to SLO,” she said. Previous owners Jen and Brandon

Coffee that cares

Sally Loo’s Wholesome Cafe and its new grab-and-go window is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, go to sallylooswholesomecafe.com or follow the business on Instagram @sallyloos.

Manuele originally opened Sally Loo’s in 2009 with a simple dream: to serve really good coffee to their friends. The cozy, casual hangout evolved from a coffee-only joint to offering breakfast and lunch plates laden with orange-yolked free-range eggs, thickcut artisanal bread, and just-picked produce. Pancakes, acai bowls, and savory sandwiches followed. The Manueles, who have since moved to South Carolina to try their hand at homesteading, were known for harboring strong relationships with local farmers and artists. “Sure it was a leap of faith for me, but they had faith in me; and it was crazy for them to hire me on,” Fullarton said, adding that she met one of her best friends, Hope Scott, in the kitchen (chef Scott is still working in the kitchen). It didn’t take long for ambitious Fullarton to evolve from line cook to a more of a manager. She even rolled out a short-lived after-hours menu and experimented with bringing in local wine and tapas. “I came up with this little business plan and had all these new ideas for the future of Sally Loo’s,” Fullarton said. “Jen and Brandon were like, ‘Wow you really love this place. Do you want to buy it?’ I said no at first, but then I thought about it for one day and realized, wait—yes, yes I do!” On Nov. 1, 2017, about a year ago, the one-time employee purchased the coffee shop and hit the ground running. Changes were made to staff, a new coffee roaster was brought in (Cacti Coffee Co. owned by local coffee guru Shawn Clark) and a new baker was hired. Grain bowls and avocado toast were added to the menu. Fullarton brought in a fresh pair of eyes to work on efficiency in the kitchen. Even though much has changed behind the scenes, the new owner said she’s worked hard to keep the classic Sally Loo’s ethos alive: quality first, even when it seems crazy. “I always liked the young, passionate staff at Sally Loo’s, and obviously the Manueles built the shop on sourcing locally and caring about the customer and what’s on their plates,” Fullarton said, adding that it’s been inspirational to go out and visit with area farmers from Santa Ynez to Paso Robles. As she likes to tell people, “I never knew it then, but going to farmers’ markets would become a huge part of my job.” The popular Thursday night burger

trivia events have continued, and the coffee shop is still hosting community events (their first clothing swap with SLO’s Ruby Rose vintage store kicked off earlier this week). Although the new coffee window currently serves just hot java and baked breakfast items, Fullarton aims to provide grab-and-go baguette sandwiches, trendy bowls, and other eats in 2019. Yes, there is still more to be done. “Coffee� is more than “coffee� to this go-getter, and Sally Loo’s was never just a “coffee shop� to her. It was, and is, a meeting place and a home. When it comes to keeping Fullarton’s customers caffeinated and happy, there are no limits to what she’ll do. “We are making Sally Loo’s a better experience; keeping the quality and customer service high, but also making sure our customers feel even more cared for than before,� she said. “Whether it’s a free coffee refill, more seating, or simply the shorter wait time, we want to show that we truly care.� ∆

MEXICANA Fusion fantasy: Longtime Morro Bay restaurant Taco Temple plans to open a new location in San Luis Obispo in 2019! The California/Mexicanfusion fave is slated to serve tacos, burritos, and creative twists on spicy standards in the old Margie’s Diner building off Highway 101 in SLO (for more information, go to tacotemple. com) ‌ On Nov. 10, head to Shell Beach for an evening of Mexican food and seaside views. Enjoy the sunset and grub on Chef Brad Wills’ go-to Mary’s Chicken tacos prepared with locally procured ingredients. Savor all the fixins and chill out to the sounds of dynamic duo the Van Gundy’s, who will play an acoustic set to round out the groovy ambiance. The event is hosted by Hearth and kicks off from 4 to 6 p.m. at 325 Cuyama Ave. in Shell Beach ‌ The owners of Santa Margarita’s steak mecca The Range are nearly ready to offer a lunch and brunch menu at their new beer and wine bar, Rosalina. Yay! Jeff and Lindsay Jackson, who have served up dinners at The Range for more than a decade, bought the former Santa Margarita Tavern (located just across El Camino Real from their restaurant) about a year and a half ago with the desire to honor Jeff Jackson’s mother, Rosalina, who hails from Jalisco, Mexico.

Park Street Grill in Paso Robles will host a grand re-opening on Nov. 8 at 4:30 p.m. to celebrate its new name change (formerly Farmstead Catering). This event also commemorates one year in business, pairing farm fresh fare with local and world-renowned wines. Congrats! (Learn more at farmsteadcatering.com) … Ice cream is cold and coffee is hot, but they can still hang out in perfect harmony: Sips & Sweets, a new coffeehouse in Paso Robles, will open in the old Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory space across from the Downtown City Park, serving up mint chip and hot drip.

D’oh nuts: Downtown Donut Company in downtown SLO is your hands-on DIY doughnut haven, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up pre-made flavors, too. Try the Peanut Butter and Jelly Time, Elvis Presley, or New York style strawberry cheesecake for a sweet, sinful fix … You don’t have to be a tourist to live the tourist life! Sign up for 101 Wine Tours’ Best of the Central Coastal Tour departing from Pismo Beach at noon this Nov. 9 and taste a flight of three local wines before heading up the coast. On the itinerary: coastal taffy, cookies from Brown Butter Cookie Company, a stroll through the cute town of Harmony, and a sight-seeing stop at the Elephant Seal rookery. For more information, go to 101winetours.com. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain doesn’t like taffy, but she does like Brown Butter Cookie Company. She can be reached at hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

Sometimes you’ve just got to believe the hype. When everyone told Brian and Nancy Stein that they should open a restaurant, they actually decided to go for it! As owners of Stein’s Deli in Atascadero and Stein’s BBQ & Catering, the couple already had its finger on the pulse of what the public was hankering for (more barbecue sauce and wet-naps). When the perfect location came up in Downtown Paso Robles, they decided to open shop and throw some ribs on the smoker with help from their kids. Stein’s BBQ Company will serve up all the meaty mouthfuls you’d expect from a true blue Central Coast joint, including Santa Maria-style tri-tip, pastrami sandwiches, ale-basted chicken, pulled pork, ribs, and an array of house-made sides (plus, fans of the deli will be happy to know that some of their old favorites will be available as daily specials). When you’ve been winning awards and adoration for your barbecue for three decades, you’d be crazy not to open a restaurant. Stein’s BBQ Company is located at 1240 Park St.; a grand opening celebration is slated for Nov. 8 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain likes extra barbecue sauce, always. She can be reached at hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

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

GO WITH THE TOP DOG.

for the week of Nov. 8

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: When they say ‘Be yourself,’ which self do they mean? Testify at freewillastrology.com. ARIES (March 21-April 19): In 1994, Aries pop diva Mariah Carey collaborated with an associate to write the song “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It took them 15 minutes to finish it. Since then it has generated $60 million in royalties. I wish I could unconditionally predict that you, too, will efficiently spawn a valuable creation sometime soon. Current planetary alignments do indeed suggest that such a development is more possible than usual. But because I tend to be conservative in my prophecies, I won’t guarantee anything close to the $60 million figure. In fact, your reward may be more spiritual in nature than financial.

TAURUS

35,000 18,000

(April 20-May 20): An interactive post at reddit.com asked readers to write about “the most underrated feeling of all time.” One person said, “When you change the sheets on your bed.” Another extolled “the feeling that comes when you pay all your bills and you’ve still got money in the bank.” Others said, “dancing under the rain,” “physical contact like a pat on the back when you’re really touch starved,” and “listening to a song for the first time and it’s so good you just can’t stop smiling.” I bring this to your attention, Taurus, because I suspect that the next two weeks will bring you a flood of these pleasurable underrated feelings.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Beer makes you feel the way you ought to feel without beer,” wrote Gemini author Henry Lawson. Do you have any methods for making yourself feel like you’ve drunk a few beers that don’t involve drinking a few beers? If not, I highly recommend that you find at least one. It will be especially important in the coming weeks for you to have a way to alter, expand, or purify your consciousness without relying on literal intoxicants or drugs. The goal: to leave your groove before it devolves into a rut.

(June 21-July 22): Study the following five failed predictions. 1. “There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom.” —Robert Miliham, Nobel Laureate in Physics, 1923. 2. “This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” —Western Union internal memo, 1876. 3. “Rail travel at high speeds is not possible because passengers, unable to breathe, would die of asphyxia.” —Dionysius Lardner, scientist, 1830. 4. “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” —Ken Olson, president of Digital Equipment Corporation, 1977. 5. “Most Cancerians will never overcome their tendencies toward hypersensitivity, procrastination, and fear of success.” —Lanira Kentsler, astrologer, 2018. (P.S. What you do in the next 12 months could go a long way toward permanently refuting the last prediction.)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): German scientists have created cochlear implants for gerbils that have been genetically modified, enabling the creatures to “listen” to light. The researchers’ work is ultimately dedicated to finding ways to improve the lives of people with hearing impairments. What might be the equivalent of you gaining the power to “hear light”? I understand that you might resist thinking this way. “That makes no sense,” you may protest, or “There’s no practical value in fantasizing about such an impossibility.” But I hope you’ll make the effort anyway. In my view, stretching your imagination past its limits is the healing you need most right now. I also think that doing so will turn out to be unexpectedly practical.

in you, I’ll add a further clue from poet Anna Kamienska: “Where your pain is, there your heart lies also.” (P.S. Rumi is translated by Coleman Barks; Kamienska by Clare Cavanagh.)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Artist David Hockney is proud of how undemanding he is toward his friends and associates. “People tell me they open my emails first,” he says, “because they aren’t demands and you don’t need to reply. They’re simply for pleasure.” He also enjoys giving regular small gifts. “I draw flowers every day and send them to my friends so they get fresh blooms.” Hockney seems to share the perspective expressed by author Gail Godwin, who writes, “How easy it was to make people happy, when you didn’t want or need anything from them.” In accordance with astrological omens, Libra, I suggest you have fun employing these approaches in the coming weeks.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I am not currently a wanderer or voyager or entrepreneur or swashbuckler. But at other times in my life, I have had extensive experience with those roles. So I know secrets about how and why to be a wanderer and voyager and entrepreneur and swashbuckler. And it’s clear to me that in the coming weeks you could benefit in unforeseen ways from researching and embodying the roles of curious wanderer and brave voyager and savvy entrepreneur and prudent swashbuckler.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.” That brilliant formulation came from poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Does it seem so obvious as to not need mentioning? Bear with me while I draw further meaning from it, and suggest you use it as an inspiring metaphor in the coming weeks. When it rains, Sagittarius, let it rain; don’t waste time and emotional energy complaining about the rain. Don’t indulge in fruitless fantasizing about how you might stop the rain and how you’d love to stop the rain. In fact, please refrain from defining the rain as a negative event, because after all, it is perfectly natural, and is in fact crucial for making the crops grow and replenishing our water supply. (P.S. Your metaphorical “rain” will be equally useful.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation,” writes activist and author Elif Shafak. “If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven’t loved enough.” I bring this to your attention because you’re in a phase when your close alliances should be activating healing changes in your life. If for some reason your alliances are not yet awash in the exciting emotions of redemption and reinvention, get started on instigating experimental acts of intimacy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I suspect you will be an especially arousing influence in the coming weeks. You may also be inspiring and disorienting, with unpredictable results. How many transformations will you unleash? How many expectations will you dismantle? How many creative disruptions will you induce in the midst of the daily grind? I hesitate to underestimate the messy beauty you’ll stir up or the rambunctious gossip you’ll provoke. In any case, I plan to be richly amused by your exploits, and I hope everyone else will be, as well. For best results, I will pray to the Goddess of Productive Fun, begging Her to ensure that the commotions and uproars you catalyze will be in service to love and kindness.

VIRGO

PISCES

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Here’s useful wisdom from the poet Rumi. “Our defects are the ways that glory gets manifested,” he said. “Keep looking at the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.” Playwright Harrison David Rivers interprets Rumi’s words to mean, “Don’t look away from your pain, don’t disengage from it, because that pain is the source of your power.” I think these perspectives are just what you need to meditate on, Virgo. To promote even more healing

(Feb. 19-March 20): Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson wasn’t always a wild and crazy writer. Early in his career he made an effort to compose respectable, measured prose. When he finally gave up on that project and decided he could “get away with” a more uninhibited style, he described it as being “like falling down an elevator shaft and landing in a pool full of mermaids.” I foresee a metaphorically comparable development in your future, Pisces. ∆
