Hollands spend $50k to unseat sheriff and district attorney

T

he family of a mentally ill man who died in the SLO County Jail last year donated $50,000 to two men running against the sitting sheriff and district attorney. Carty Holland donated $25,000 to Greg Clayton, a local private investigator challenging Sheriff Ian Parkinson, and another $25,000 to Judge Mike Cummins for his run against SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow, according to campaign finance records. “My wife and I met with both candidates, and we were encouraged on multiple levels,” Carty told New Times. “They are motivated to reform a

broken system.” Carty’s son, Andrew Holland, a 36-year-old Atascadero man suffering from schizophrenia, died at the jail on Jan. 22, 2017, after spending 46 hours strapped into a restraint chair. His death sparked outrage over the treatment of mentally ill inmates at the jail, resulting in an FBI civil rights investigation and a $5 million settlement between the county and Holland’s family. In the wake of the settlement, Carty and his wife, Sharon, called on Parkinson to resign. The family has also criticized Dow for not investigating Andrew’s death, with PHOTO BY CHRIS MCGUINNESS Carty telling New Times that the district attorney “ignored a brutal death under his nose.” “There’s really been no accountability,” Carty said. “We don’t hold anything personally against either one of these gentlemen, but their actions have been fundamentally wrong for a person or persons in those positions.” Clayton, a former SLO police officer who’s worked as a private investigator for the last 25 years, said he was approached by a group of county residents, including the OPPOSED Two candidates looking to unseat SLO County Hollands, and encouraged to run.

in the restraint chair and subsequent death, calling it “one of the most troubling things I’ve seen in my life,” and placing the blame squarely on Parkinson’s shoulders. “The reality is, the buck stops at his desk,” Clayton said. “He is responsible for Andrew Holland’s death.” As part of his campaign platform, Clayton said he wants to create a citizens oversight committee for the jail and advocate for a dedicated psychiatric facility within the jail, among other reforms. Cummins, a former attorney and retired Stanislaus County judge, has said that if elected, he will investigate the deaths at the county jail, including Andrew’s. He said he was contacted by the Holland family shortly after The Tribune published his comments on the issue in a Jan. 14 article. Speaking with New Times, Cummins said he believed that Dow’s decision not to investigate the death was politically motivated. “I think [Dow] handled it very poorly,” Cummins said. Since the announcement of the settlement, the Hollands formed the nonprofit Andrew Holland Foundation to advocate for and support mentally ill individuals in the criminal justice system and their families, and continue to call for reforms at the SLO County Jail, where the family held a vigil to mark the one year anniversary of Andrew’s death on Jan. 22. “We want to use any avenue that we can take to bring a greater understanding to those who are the most vulnerable in that system,” Carty said. ∆ —Chris McGuinness

Designed to provide a safer throughway between Foothill Boulevard and downtown SLO and increase bike ridership in the city, the $1.4 million bikeway would send cyclists into a two-way protected “cycletrack” down Chorro and Broad streets, through the Anholm neighborhood. After hours of public comment—and a blowup earlier in the day between Mayor Heidi Harmon and former Mayor Ken Schwartz after Schwartz blasted the project as “urban rape”—the City Council voted to move forward on some aspects of the plan while not pulling the trigger on the cycletrack, which would result in a heavy loss of on-street parking. “In essence, what it does is it allows us to do the improvements that we can all agree upon and gives ourselves another year to monitor and see what’s working,” City Councilmember Andy Pease told New Times on Feb. 7. “I think we’re still open to something bigger, but we’re giving ourselves extra time to see what works first.” Per the council’s direction, city staff will proceed with purchasing a right-of-way from the Church of Latter Day Saints on its property on Foothill, which will be the site of a bike and pedestrian path connecting Foothill with Ramona Drive. A protected bike path is then planned to connect Ramona Drive with Broad Street. While the City Council continues to mull whether it wants a protected cycletrack down Broad and Chorro, the city will install signage and traffic calming measures on those streets. That work is supposed to be completed in 2019. Community discussion around the Anholm

Bikeway Plan has been passionate and often contentious. Tensions boiled over on Feb. 6 after former SLO Mayor Schwartz, in a letter published in The Tribune, called it “urban rape ... not to be performed by a male penis, but by thousands of inanimate bicycles ... .” Mayor Harmon issued a press release later that afternoon condemning Schwartz’s rhetoric and calling for more civil discourse. “The tone and tenor of this discussion and other topics has been out of control,” Harmon stated in an email. “It is especially shocking and disappointing to see a former mayor, who should know better, saying things like [that] ... . This is unacceptable in light of hearing more and more how real women and girls are actually being violently raped in this country every day.” Harmon added: “People need to be held accountable for this type of behavior when discussion moves away from civility and is rash, inappropriate, inflammatory, and downright disrespectful.” —Peter Johnson

board was excited to be at this point with the project after two years of negotiations with Red Tail Acquisitions. “This district has always used this opportunity as not only a project to generate money but more importantly or just as importantly, it’s a public benefit to all those in California that are able to use this property for camping use,” Lueker said. The development will provide space for low cost overnight accommodations—57 recreational vehicle (RV) sites, 53 walkin and drive-in tent camping sites, and 51 RV cabins. A lodge, swimming pool, restaurant, recreation facilities, and other visitor amenities will also be included. The fishermen’s gear storage, trailer boat storage, and harbor use area, which exist on the site, will remain in their current locations and continue to be used as part of port operations. The California Coastal Development permit is in place, and Red Tail Acquisitions is now working with San Luis Obispo County on grading and building permits. The project is slated to break ground in the spring/summer of 2019, with a tentative construction period of eight months. The project was originally conceived in 1977, when the Harbor Commission purchased the majority of the land for the development. In 2015, the Harbor Commission terminated its agreement with the HomeFed Corporation and signed on with Red Tail Acquisitions. At the meeting, Lueker thanked the current staff and those before them for all the work they did to get the project to this point. “I’m going to say everybody who has touched this project has worked hard to get to where we are, which is really, in my humble opinion, with only a two-and-ahalf year employment with the district, a monumental step for the district,” she said. —Karen Garcia

County closes in on a cannabis tax that may exclude lab testers

San Luis Obispo County has a cannabis tax measure ready for citizens to consider in the June elections—but it’s making a final tweak first. On Feb. 6, county supervisors asked that a proposed 4 percent tax on gross receipts exclude lab testers, after cannabis industry consultant Sean Donahoe pointed out that testing is a public safety component of the industry. “I think there’s a case to be made that we want to encourage testing,” 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson said. Other supervisors agreed; and directed staff to revise the measure to set the lab testing tax at zero. At the request of Tax Collector-Auditor Controller Jim Erb, the measure will also allow flexibility for the board to set different tax rates for different arms of the cannabis industry. For all other elements of the industry— cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, and retail—the gross receipts tax is proposed to start at 4 percent in July 2018 and increase by 2 percent annually to a maximum of 10 percent. The Board of Supervisors can vote to lower the tax or forgo the annual increase. As of press time, the cannabis industry in SLO County isn’t exactly taking off. The county had received six land-use

applications for marijuana businesses thus far, even though 141 cultivation sites are eligible to apply. —Peter Johnson

SLO City Council members donate to Paulding in supes race

A majority of San Luis Obispo’s City Council is betting on an Arroyo Grande man seeking to unseat 4th District County Supervisor Lynn Compton in the November elections. According to recently filed campaign finance records, Councilmembers Aaron Gomez, Andy Pease, and Carlyn Christianson each donated money to Jimmy Paulding, who announced his candidacy for the 4th District seat last year. The donations total $350, with Christianson and Pease donating $100 each, and Gomez donating $250. The amount accounts for less than 1 percent of the more $47,752 Paulding reported raising in 2017. The donations were made by the council members as individuals, and do not reflect any official endorsement of his candidacy by the council. The city of SLO isn’t located within Compton’s district, therefore none of the SLO council members live within it either. However, Pease said that the decisions of the Board of Supervisors can impact the county as a whole, and praised Paulding as “well researched, intelligent, and thoughtful.” “I think he’s a problem solver and will work well with a large array of people with different points of view,” Pease said, stressing that she made the donation in her as a private citizen. “I think that’s what we need at the county level.” Gomez made similar comments about his donation, noting that there were many people who work in SLO but live outside the city. “Just because it is not in our city limits doesn’t mean that there’s no transfer of terms of other issues,” he said. Gomez said he donated to Paulding because he liked the candidate’s experience and viewpoints on important issues and believed that Paulding would bring a “more balanced perspective” than Compton. Christianson did not respond to a request for comment. In a written statement to New Times,

6 • New Times • February 8 - February 15, 2018 • www.newtimesslo.com

Paulding said that the board’s decisions can have wide-ranging effects on the residents across the county. “The decisions of the Board of Supervisors impact everyone throughout the entire county, and they are rightfully upset that we have a board member who is bought by outside corporate interests,” Paulding said. Compton has raised $275,626 for her 2018 re-election bid, according to campaign finance reports, including $162,326 in monetary contributions and $113,300 in loans. Large donations to her campaign included $3,500 from Arizona-based Shea Homes, developers of the Trilogy at Monarch Dunes luxury housing development in Nipomo; $5,000 SLO based development company PEDP Inc.; and $6,950 from retired Los Osos resident Nicholas Cook. Large donations to Paulding’s campaign included $3,500 International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union political action committee based in Washington, D.C., and $2,500 from Laborers Local 220 PAC in Sacramento. —Chris McGuinness

Supervisors decline to take stance on offshore oil drilling expansion San Luis Obispo County won’t be joining the California chorus of opposition to the Trump administration’s plans to expand offshore oil and gas drilling. A push by SLO County 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson to put forth a resolution in opposition to the federal government’s plans landed with a thud at the Feb. 6 Board of Supervisors meeting— failing to gain support from either 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold or 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton. 1st District Supervisor John Peschong recused himself from the discussion due to his past work with oil companies, and 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill was absent with an illness. Gibson made the motion to have county staff draft a formal resolution after representatives from the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and the Environmental Center of SLO urged the board to take a stance—something other California counties have done. The Santa

Barbara County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution in opposition to expanded offshore drilling on Jan. 30. The board’s inaction means that the public comment period for the Trump administration’s 2019-2024 oil and gas leasing program—which includes six new oil and gas leases off California’s coast— is set to expire on March 9 without a statement from SLO County. “It’s a very sad situation that this board refuses to stand up and speak out against what is a palpable threat to the interests of this county,” Gibson said. On the dais, Compton expressed discomfort with the language of a proposed resolution that the Surfrider Foundation had submitted. Arnold said that Measure A, which was passed by county voters in 1986 and requires voter approval of any onshore oil facilities, would allow the question of offshore development to be decided by local citizens. Compton stated via email that she is opposed to offshore oil and gas drilling. She cited her vote last February in favor of a letter sent to U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke affirming the county’s support for Measure A and her vote denying the Phillips 66 rail spur extension project as evidence of that position. “I think I’m adequately on record with my position,” Compton said. Arnold told New Times her deferment to Measure A had to do with wanting to omit the board’s political leanings from the offshore oil drilling issue. “[The] ideology of an elected board kind of ebbs and flows, and Measure A levels that out in that if there’s ever a proposal for offshore oil leasing in this county, it’s got to go through the people to be viable,” Arnold said. Since being elected to the board in 2016, Peschong has recused himself from any vote relating to the oil or gas industries. According to Fair Political Practices Commission filings, Peschong received at least $10,000 in compensation for his work as a political strategist from Phillips 66 Company; Exxon Mobil Corporation; Pinnacle West Capital (an energy firm in Arizona); and Monterey County for Energy Independence, the political action committee that in 2016 campaigned against Measure Z, which banned fracking in the Monterey County.

Wastewater on tap A look at what Los Osos is doing with all that newly recycled water

T

he long-awaited Los Osos sewer plant is up and running, with 95 percent of the affected properties hooked up as of Feb. 1, according to San Luis Obispo County officials. Each day, an average of 446,371 gallons of wastewater is flowing to the plant, which means it’s no longer going into the septic tanks that polluted the underlying groundwater for decades. While the high percentage of sewer connections marks an important step to solving Los Osos’ water woes, the next challenge for the community is in effectively deploying the recycled water the plant generates, a resource that’s supposed to play a critical role in the long-term stability of the Los Osos Valley Groundwater Basin. For this story, New Times tracked down the details of where all of that recycled water is headed and for what purpose. Some elements of the program meet the expectations of a court-approved Los Osos Basin Management Plan, while others may be falling short.

Basin recharge

As a condition of approval for the Los Osos wastewater plant, the California Coastal Commission required that all the recycled water be “reinvested” into the Los Osos basin area. Most of the 500 acre-feet (there are 325,851 gallons of water per acre foot) of recycled water produced each year will be sent to one location in that area: an 8-acre leach field off Broderson Avenue. Once disposed at the leach field, the water will slowly seep into the underground basin’s upper and lower aquifers. Both aquifers have serious ailments: The upper is plagued with high concentrations of nitrates (due to the septic systems) while the lower is experiencing seawater intrusion as a result of overpumping and drought. Over the long term, the Broderson leach field is expected to help maintain water levels in the basin. “Hydrogeologic reports show that 22 percent [of the water at the Broderson leach field] will eventually migrate to the lower aquifer over several years,” said

Mark Hutchinson, deputy director of the SLO County Public Works Department. “The majority stays in the upper aquifer and eventually make its way to wetlands along the [Morro Bay] fringe.” A small percentage of the recycled water—33 acre-feet annually—will go to the Bayridge Estates leach field to benefit Willow Creek, and another potential basin recharge project is in the works for Los Osos Creek. While basin recharge is the main element of the Los Osos recycled water program, there are also efforts aimed at reducing the community’s demand for groundwater.

One of the landowners buying recycled water, who asked to be anonymous for this story, said he was considering drilling a well on his property until “this option came up.” He plans on leasing the land to a farmer who will make use of the recycled water. Hutchinson noted that the ag agreements could be beneficial in that they could be “proof of concept” for other farmers skeptical about feeding their crops recycled water instead of groundwater.

Thirsty crops

In addition to hammering out contracts with farmers, the county is also working with local water purveyors to deliver recycled water to Los Osos’ schools, the community park, and the Sea Pines Golf Course for irrigation. That would save the groundwater basin about 63 acre-feet of pumping per year, and keep the grass green at the park and Los Osos Middle School, Monarch Grove

Farming over the Los Osos water basin accounts for 750 acre-feet of groundwater use per year—far more water than the sewer plant can produce in recycled water over the same time span. While the sewer can’t deliver that much water to agriculture, basin regulators assumed that some farmers would be interested in utilizing recycled water to irrigate their crops in lieu of groundwater, according to the Basin Management Plan. But, ultimately, the county couldn’t find any takers. Still, per the Coastal Commission permit, at least 10 percent of the recycled water is required to go to agriculture as a mitigation measure, since the plant itself was built on ag land, according to county officials. To stay in compliance, the county entered into recycled water agreements with four area landowners who either had no wells or had poor groundwater conditions on their properties. The county will sell and deliver up to 81 acre-feet, or 16 percent of the annual recycled water, at $100 per acre foot to those parcels, which are all on the east end of town. The agreements run for 10 years, but after five years, either party can back out with six months’ notice. “It’s not ideal,” said Bruce Gibson, 2nd District SLO County supervisor representing Los Osos. “I absolutely would have rather struck deals with people who could help the basin.”

Schools, Sea Pines, and construction

Elementary School, Baywood Elementary School, and Sunnyside Elementary. Providing water for the golf course would save another 25 to 35 acre-feet, according to the Basin Management Plan. The county also intends to start a construction water program, where local contractors can pick up recycled water from the wastewater plant to use for onsite needs like dust control, as opposed to using potable water for those purposes. Recycled water deliveries are expected to begin sometime this summer. Standing in the way of all of Los Osos’ recycled water projects, other than the leach field deliveries, is Regional Water Quality Control Board approval for a recycled water permit. The local stakeholders also need to finalize the various contracts, and some additional piping is needed. “There’s a lot of paperwork and a little bit of plumbing,” Hutchinson said. In general, Hutchinson emphasized the importance of securing a variety of places to send the plant’s recycled water, since it will always be generated. “The wastewater never stops flowing in,” Hutchinson said. “Having as many options, expanding your suite of options, is always important.” ∆ Staff Writer Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

NO GROUNDWATER, NO PROBLEM A portion of the recycled water generated by the Los Osos sewer will be sold and delivered to properties with poor groundwater for crop irrigation, like this one on Blue Heron View Lane.

together to pass meaningful legislation despite the concerns raised about the newly elected president. “I’m an optimist,” he told reporters at the time. One year later, Carbajal gave his thoughts on Trump’s first State of the Union address. His assessment of the 80-minute speech is blunt. “It was hollow rhetoric,” Carbajal said.

Carbajal reflects on his first year in Congress “One hour in front of a teleprompter isn’t going to make his year of hate, bigotry, incompetence, and dysfunction go away.” For those who followed Carbajal’s first year on the job, the words shouldn’t come as a surprise. The former Santa Barbara County supervisor spent most of the last 365 days standing in staunch opposition to the majority of the policy pushes that emanated from the Trump White House and the Republican majority in Congress. He opposes the expansion of offshore oil drilling, the promised wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, and the recently passed Republican tax bill. When he speaks, it’s clear that one year under the shadow of Trump has not softened his image of the president. “His speech won’t erase the dysfunction and chaos he’s inflicted on our nation for one year,” Carbajal said. That dissatisfaction isn’t confined to the president alone. As he sat through the speech, Carbajal likely saw Republican lawmakers on the other side of the aisle jump up to deliver raucous applause at the words many of his fellow Democrats also characterized as “hollow rhetoric.” A year ago, Carbajal’s optimism was, in part, based on the hope that some of those same Republicans might be willing to reach across the aisle to help blunt the president’s erratic governing style and disconcerting policy goals. “We’ll see if his antics and terrible agenda is one where at least a core number of Republicans will say, ‘No, we’re not going along with that,’” he said in 2017. One year later Carbajal was chiding those Republicans who have backed the president’s agenda for their role in “shoring up an incompetent president.” “I think there’s a level of complicity that is going on, and I think that is unfortunate,” he said. “Party matters more than our democracy and finding solutions for the American people.” Carbajal is up for re-election in November, and has already accrued a sizeable war chest in preparation for the race. According to campaign finance filings, he’s raised more than $1.5 million. His closest competitor, Republican Justin Fareed, whom Carbajal defeated by 6.8 percentage points in the 2017 election for

the 24th Congressional District seat, has raised a little more than $373,000. The June primary is still months away, but Fareed is already taking aim at Carbajal, calling out the more than $437,000 in money from Political Action Committees that make up an estimated 27 percent of Carbajal’s fundraising for the election, and turning the votes he’s cast against the Republican majority into a line of attack against the now incumbent congressman. “While Carbajal has been in Washington, he’s voted in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi and introduced legislation at the behest of special interest groups but has yet to produce solutions or results for California families and struggling businesses,” Fareed said in a written statement issued by his campaign. With the divisions both inside and outside Washington, D.C., seeming to grow deeper with each passing day, it raises the question that after his first year as a congressman, is Carbajal still an optimist? Despite all he’s seen on Capitol Hill this last year, Carbajal still claims he sees “glimmers of hope” to move forward with bipartisan solutions to important issues. He said that he is part of a bipartisan group of about 48 lawmakers known as the “Problem Solvers Caucus,” which recently made headlines when it rolled out a proposal to address immigration reform and the fate of DACA recipients. “We are working to come up with frameworks on infrastructure, health care, and the Dream Act,” he said. “I continue to try and work across the aisle.” Another reason Carbajal and other Democrats may be optimistic is the upcoming midterm elections. A number of Republican lawmakers have announced that they are retiring, and Carbajal believes that unpopular Republican legislation, such as the attempt to repeal Obamacare and the passage of the GOP tax plan, could usher in a wave of Democratic wins and push remaining Republican lawmakers away from Trump. “Look at what happened in Virginia and Wisconsin,” Carbajal said, referring to recent Democratic Party victories in special elections in those states. “This is going to be a very interesting November. … I hope that what is coming in the future will get [the Republican majority] to be more pragmatic.” ∆ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE The Five Cities Fire Authority struggles to maintain its firefighters and serve its communities—Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano.

The

last vestige of volunteers

Meeting staffing requirements is a growing issue for some SLO County fire departments BY KAREN GARCIA | PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

T

here aren’t many firefighters around on a late day in January at the Grover Beach Fire Station No. 3, one of three fire departments that make up the Five Cities Fire Authority. There are only three people in the building, and one of them is reserve firefighter Jeff Lane. That day he was working alongside a fire captain and an engineer. All three crew members play a vital role in responding to emergencies. The captain supervises, the engineer drives the fire truck and handles its equipment, and the reserve firefighter works alongside the captain with any kind of fire emergency. “The reserve firefighter essentially is the firefighter. It’s not the extra person on the rig. It’s the firefighter that shows up at your house,” Lane said. A reserve firefighter not only plays a key role on the fire crew, but the position also helps fire departments meet the required staffing levels to adequately respond to emergencies within the community. As part of the reserve program, Lane doesn’t work a set number of hours each week. He picks up shifts between all three departments. He’s been with the fire authority for about eight years, two years as a full-time firefighter and six as a reserve making $14 an hour—which isn’t enough to pay the bills on the Central Coast. When he’s off duty, he scopes out Craigslist for construction or professional photography jobs to make ends meet. “Because I’ve stayed with the department, some of the other jobs I’ve held in the past eight years have been CPR instructor, surf instructor, I worked as a photographer in the Sears photo center, and I worked at Allegiant Air in Santa Maria putting luggage onto planes and fielding planes,” he said. Lane isn’t the only reserve firefighter that’s feeling the strain when it comes to balancing his position in the reserve program and having enough money to support himself.

“We would rather be here [the fire department], so we try to be here as much as possible. But when it comes down to making half as much money, we tend to lean toward what we can do for ourselves and our families. Unfortunately putting food on the table comes first,” he said. This predicament is something that fire departments throughout San Luis Obispo County are dealing with. Juggling how to retain reserve firefighters with the need to staff their stations is leading many to take a second look at their reserve programs and how they fund their fire departments. Cayucos barely hung onto its fire department for the past four years but recently handed over its department to the county because the community didn’t want to fund it the way it needed to be funded. The department was paid for through a special fire tax of $100 per household on top of property taxes, but it wasn’t enough.

In 2016, the community voted against Measure C-16, which would have raised the tax to $125 per residential unit. At a rate of four units per single family home, the fire tax would have increased by $500 per average household. In June of last year the fire department’s board voted, with plenty of opposition from the community, 2-1 to dissolve the fire department and turn it over to San Luis Obispo County. Currently Cayucos has filed an application to dissolve with Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) and work on an agreement with the county on a contract that would benefit the town. Aside from the main goal of providing year-round fire protection for the town, Cayucos intends to negotiate keeping the department at its current location and maintaining its reserve firefighter program. Cities and community services districts throughout the county are weighing their options as Cayucos did, trying to figure

out whether their reserve firefighter programs are adequately serving their respective communities and how to manage the costs of supporting growing populations, which are increasing the demand for services.

Not a guarantee

The communities of Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano receive fire and emergency protection from the Five Cities Fire Authority. The communities signed a joint powers agreement in 2010. Prior to that, all three had separate allvolunteer run fire departments. Oceano Community Services District (CSD) Board President Karen White said Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach eventually started sharing a fire chief and a training officer on top of the equipment that one had and the other couldn’t afford. “They started sharing and working together because they couldn’t afford two fire chiefs, two training officers, two air trucks,” White said. Along with sharing equipment and relying on volunteer firefighters, the departments used a response model called boundary drop: the nearest available resource responded to the emergency no matter where it was with respect to city limits. During that time, Oceano was receiving fire services from a Cal Fire station in Nipomo, but White said that the community was experiencing response challenges. In 2010, Oceano joined Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach to form the threeagency department. Five Cities Fire Authority Fire Chief Stephen Lieberman said the departments changed from all-volunteer to having paid positions—a guaranteed firefighter in the station—because the population of the communities grew and emergency calls increased. “The days of working on Main Street in the community you sleep in and then

nts aid he

running to the fire station to respond to a call is getting harder and harder,” he said. “You can say, ‘Well why did that happen?’ Same reasons where we see ourselves today: call volumes increasing, availability of trained personnel is a challenge, and the aging population— because remember, this is a place where people can retire but they bring their big city service expectations.” While Five Cities Fire was efficient at providing service to all three communities, there has always been the long-term concern of adequately funding it. In light of the joint powers agreement, any budget decisions have to be approved unanimously by all three communities. The call volume for the Five Cities Fire Authority has increased by 4 percent over the last year and has been steadily increasing for the past several years. More and more volunteer firefighters either live or have other jobs outside of the community, which affects the time it takes to respond to an emergency. More importantly, relying on reserve firefighters isn’t a guarantee that he or she will have the ability to be in the station for their shift. While there are a fire captain and fire engineer at all three of the Five Cities’ stations, there are numerous unfilled reserve firefighter positions. Between December 2017 and the end of the fiscal year (June 2018), there will be 178 vacant firefighter shifts. The agency is filling those gaps by mandating off-duty full-time firefighters to work, but that means the agency will be paying those firefighters for overtime. Lieberman said he has the authority to call in career firefighters to work those vacant shifts, but he doesn’t have that same ability with a reserve firefighter. “If one of the reserves has another job— most of them have multiple jobs—I can’t make him come in. That job might pay more and he has a family to feed,” he said. Because of this, Lieberman is proposing to transition the department from a career and reserve firefighters model to ending the reserve program completely and hiring three full-time career firefighters. The reserve program would be phased out over the next five years, but it would cost the communities. The fire authority’s budget could increase by approximately 70 percent, according to plan estimates.

RESPONSIBILITIES Jeff Lane, a reserve firefighter for the Five Cities Fire Authority, must not only respond to emergencies but he is also responsible for the fire truck.

Lieberman is making his way to the CSD board and both city councils to present his plan, which the municipalities have to make a decision on by March— just ahead of when they will be crafting budgets for the next fiscal year. Oceano Board President White said her CSD only has so much in its budget to allocate to the fire agency. It’s one of the challenges particular to Oceano, which doesn’t have the same revenue sources as cities. CSDs receive money depending on the services that they provide, such as fire, water, and/or sewage. They rely overwhelmingly on property taxes to fund their operating budgets. “I know we’re going to come to a resolution because we’re working on it, and I think that’s probably the most important thing. We’re sitting down talking together and talking individually to see what can be done,” she said.

Out with the old

Pismo Beach transitioned from operating a city fire department to contracting with Cal Fire for fire and emergency services in 2001. Cal Fire provides staffing and fire operations at Station 64 and Station 63, the two existing stations in the city. The stations are made up of state employees (Cal Fire firefighters) and reserve firefighters (city employees). Paul Lee, the current battalion chief for the department, said Cal Fire responds to every type of call that a city fire department would. “It’s a state aid agency that has state resources, so instead of it being city employees, the department has state employees, and we provide a service based on what the City Council wants,” Lee said. He said the City Council has been concerned about Station 64’s reserve program for the last three years. When the economy crashed in 2008 there weren’t many open positions, so it was easier for the department to hire reserve firefighters and keep them for an average of four years. “Once the economy changed, it became difficult for us to hire a prospective reserve, put them through training, and have them available for very long. They would go take a job with Los Angeles County, Kern County, or San Francisco city that obviously has full-time positions that is going to pay a lot more,” Lee said. In April of last year, Cal Fire and the Pismo Beach City Council started looking into the cost of what it took to train reserves who weren’t sticking around for the long haul. “It wasn’t for lack of welltrained people; it was the high turnover rate. We just couldn’t keep people long enough,” he said. If the city kept the reserve program, the general fund budget for the 2018 and 2019 fiscal years would increase from roughly $2.2 million to $2.5 million (2018) and $2.4 million to $2.7 million (2019). The City Council voted to hire three full-time firefighters and phase out the reserve program in June of this year. “The city decided to hire more Cal Fire engineers to replace the reserve program so there would be a guarantee those positions would be filled,” Lee said. “The reserve program was not a guaranteed staffing element every day, so now we have guaranteed staffing.”

Quality service

Cambria’s fire department is also feeling the strains of being funded through its CSD. Up to a year and a half ago, the department only had a full-time captain, a full-time engineer, a reserve firefighter, and a fire chief, William Hollingsworth. At that time, the department received a Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant, to fund three additional fulltime firefighters for two years. That allowed the department to staff four positions rather than three. This federal grant was created to provide direct funding that assists fire departments in increasing or maintaining the number of trained firefighters. The goal of the grant is to enhance the local fire department’s abilities to comply with staffing, response, and operational standards established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). “It’s a very common practice to provide a higher, more appropriate level of emergency services to the community, but there’s a sunset to it, it’s only available for two years,” Hollingsworth said. Last June, the district board approved the transfer of $84,000 from the general fund reserves to pay for firefighter salaries with the anticipation that the SAFER firefighters (funded by the grant) would eventually be hired as permanent full-time firefighters. Keeping those firefighters on would cost the CSD an additional $70,650 in salary costs for the last quarter in the 2017-18 fiscal year, as the the SAFER grant ends in March, and about $306,000 after that. To come up with the extra funds, the CSD would have to assess a special tax of $50 per household per year. Hollingsworth brought the issue to the CSD on Jan. 18. District Board President Amanda Rice expressed doubt as to whether that additional full-time firefighter was necessary to serve the community. “I remain unconvinced that the additional person and the three firefighters … is not overkill for the community of this size,” Rice said. Hollingsworth said having four firefighters on duty versus three means having a 25 percent faster response time, conducting search and rescue responses 6 percent faster, and it enables the crew to pump water out 6 percent faster when they’re at a fire. The board unanimously voted to hold a special meeting on whether the district should consider approving a ballot measure to fund the three firefighter positions and allow the CSD to have enough to fund a fourth firefighter. If the ballot measure is approved, it would cost the district $10,000 to $20,000 to put it to vote in June. “The reason we’re looking at this is because we’re kind of an island up here. We’re relatively removed from the rest of the county,” Hollingsworth said. While the department has aggressive automatic and mutual aid agreements with other fire agencies, he said there’s an automatic time delay in getting those additional resources to Cambria.

DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES The Templeton Fire and Emergency Services Fire Chief Bill White is working to fund a minimum number of firefighters to serve his community.

Hands on deck

Just north of Highway 101, the unincorporated town of Templeton is facing similar issues with its Fire and Emergency Services Department that serves the community of about 7,600. Fire Chief Bill White splits his time between Templeton and Atascadero, spending about 48 hours as a fire captain in Atascadero and about 20 hours as the fire chief in Templeton. He said his community’s problem is not unique. Similar to Oceano and Cambria, Templeton only gets a certain amount of funding allocated for their fire department. “We have one funding mechanism that’s via property taxes. We’re not like a city that we have sales tax. Although Templeton generates $1.6 million in sales tax that goes straight to the county,” White said. One of the issues is an antiquated property tax allocation. The tax on property owners in Templeton is 8.4 cents of every dollar collected, which goes toward the CSD budget. The allocation was established when the district formed in 1976. Just three years later, Proposition 13 passed, which reduced property tax rates on homes, businesses, and farms by about 57 percent. It limits the amount by which the government can request to increase taxes. Now in 2018, the district is receiving the same property tax amount from the community. White said that he currently has a budget of a little more than $800,000 for his department and two full-time fire captains. One of the fire captains was paid for through a SAFER grant, which expired in 2016. Rather than lose that captain altogether, White changed the position from full time to part time. “We cut back on various other things as well, but I was able to save that position so that we still had a responder on that position every day,” he said. Another predicament that the department has is it can’t currently provide service 24/7—it’s only operating between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the day, White has two full-time fire captains VOLUNTEER FIRE continued page 12

two-out regulation that must be met. The two firefighters inside the structure fire must have direct visual or voice contact between each other and direct, voice, or radio contact with the two fire fighters outside of the structure. White does have three paid call firefighters that can assist, but the response time isn’t always as fast as it could be. “We do have a system in place that is very fragile because if we don’t have someone available at night then I don’t have an engine here,” he said.

Bridging the generation gap

A

s adults, we tend to look down our noses and tut-tut when we see teenagers glued to their phones and tablets, but one local high school student is looking to harness the power of tech savvy teens to help local seniors. Beginning in December of last year, Arroyo Grande High School junior Hailey Barneich organized what she’s been calling “teens helping seniors with tech” clinics. Held in the Arroyo Grande City Council chambers, the clinics feature local teenagers who volunteer their time to assist participating senior citizens, teaching them how to use and trouble shoot various electronic devices such as cellphones, tablets, and laptop computers. “Sometimes [the seniors] just want to know how to set them up,” Barneich, 16, said. “But many times, it’s small things like how to send photos, how load an app to their phone, or how to use social media.” She said the idea to create the clinics came from her own experience helping her grandparents learn how to use newer technology. “They were always asking me to help them,” she said. Barneich said the clinics focus on explaining how to use the technology in

easy-to-understand terms, and not only showing the participants how to use it, but making sure they are able to do it on their own before leaving the clinic. “We tell everyone to be patient,” she said. “We want [the seniors] to be able to go home and do it themselves.” As a tech-savvy teenager, Barneich said she began to see how modern technology was creating a barrier between the age groups, one that only seemed to grow wider as the pace of advances in computers, cellphones, and other tech sped up. “I saw that technology created a disconnect between the older generation and my generation,” she said. “I wanted to bridge that gap.” If the initial clinics are any indication, Barneich may be onto something. “It’s actually really cool to see … [the seniors] are interested in becoming more advanced with the technology,” she said. “They are really appreciative of our help.” It isn’t just the seniors who are getting something out of attending the clinic. Bridging the generation gap is a two-way street, giving the participating teens the chance to get to know the older members of their community. “Personally, I’ve become more appreciative of the older generation,” she said.

Barneich said she’d organized two clinics since December, with about 20 to 25 seniors participating thus far. The next clinic is scheduled to take place March 17 from 10 a.m. to noon in Arroyo Grande. Barneich has high hopes that the clinics may one day spread to other areas in SLO County. “I really want to expand this into the community,” she said.

Commentary

The truth of the matter Cal Poly’s Title IX Office works tirelessly to find the truth in sexual assault cases

I

read the Shredder’s comments on Cal Poly’s handling of sexual violence complaints in the Jan. 18 issue (“Celebrate by crying”) with great interest. I believe your readers (and perhaps your reporters?) would benefit from some additional background on the campus Title IX complaint investigation and adjudication process. Start with the fact that Title IX investigators are supposed to be neutral fact-finders, without bias toward or against either party. There is no reward from the university for making a particular finding—for example, at Cal Poly, Title IX investigators are expected to make their findings based on the facts and the policy, not to hush things up. Basic due process rights for all parties are required. This means that both sides get to tell their side of the story, to provide evidence and name witnesses, and have those witnesses who are relevant interviewed. The accused has the right to know all of the allegations and to respond to them. Both parties are also entitled to have an advocate throughout the investigation process, and to promptly learn the outcome of the investigation. At Cal Poly, the Safer organization does a great job of training students and staff members to serve as advocates. Either party has the right to challenge an investigation’s outcome within the university and/or to file a complaint with the federal Department of Education’s

HODIN

Office of Civil Rights about the university’s handling of a case. There is also a timeliness requirement to ensure that cases are investigated within a reasonable amount of time. The university must provide support and accommodations to anyone making a Title IX complaint, which may include changing dorm assignments, changing classes, allowing for a leave of absence, or honoring any other reasonable request from the complainant. Now imagine that you are responsible for investigating these complaints. After receiving extensive, trauma-informed training on both the university’s internal policies and practices, and investigative techniques in general, you will probably be faced with some or all of the following: • Complaints filed months or even years after the alleged offense (common among sexual trauma survivors). • Complainants and accused parties who give you incomplete witness lists, at times omitting critical witnesses, out of embarrassment or fear of being undermined by alternate accounts of the events. • Pressure from parents, friends, and others to reach a specific conclusion, and sometimes to impose a specific sanction. • Witnesses (including parties to the complaint) who can’t remember key facts or events due to intoxication. • Witnesses who discuss the case and potentially contaminate other witnesses’ testimony, despite being asked to maintain confidentiality to

protect the integrity of the investigation. While it’s understandable that people want to support each other and process what’s going on, this can interfere with the investigator’s task of getting each person’s account of the events without being influenced by what they’ve heard from others. • Complainants who change their minds about proceeding and stop cooperating with the investigation (again, common among sexual trauma survivors who want to move on with their lives and stop reliving a painful experience). • Witnesses who participate in retaliation against the complainant, including shunning the complainant (another reason people may stop cooperating with an investigation). • Stories published in the media that tell one side of the story and leave out important facts, while campus officials are required to maintain confidentiality and often cannot comment on inaccuracies. Some observers say that universities should not be in the business of investigating sexual violence at all and believe that they should be handled solely by the criminal justice system. Aside from the fact that this runs counter to federal law (the aforementioned Title IX), universities must be involved because many of those affected decide not to report the matter to law enforcement and rely on campus administrations to investigate the cases as student conduct violations as well as

to provide critical support services. In my experience, the people who investigate and adjudicate Title IX complaints are committed to doing their jobs as fairly, thoroughly, and quickly as possible. They face an almost impossible job, one in which they know that no matter what they find, one side will always be unhappy. Despite this fact, they work tirelessly to find the truth and bring about a resolution, because they truly care about ending sexual violence and helping students. ∆ Martha Cody is the retired Title IX coordinator for Cal Poly.

The lack of civility and the unwillingness to compromise are depressing. And we voters need to put ourselves in check as well. I am appalled by the comments made about our politicians and their supporters. We need to listen more, think longer, and sometimes bite our tongues before we say the first thing that comes to mind. Anyone who has been in a committed relationship probably knows this from experience. I have listened to a new candidate for LETTERS continued page 15

District 4 supervisor, Jimmy Paulding, on four different occasions in the past few months. He is homegrown with deep roots here. Jimmy cares deeply about this area. In my opinion, he is very bright and refreshingly reasonable. He is fair-minded, respectful, and thoughtful. He is a problem solver who is willing to compromise. He listens very carefully and calmly answers questions. He is always respectful of others, even though he may not agree with them. Jimmy Paulding gets my vote. Vicki Wyne Nipomo

Dear SLO City Council

I’m writing to encourage the San Luis Obispo City Council to adopt the preferred alternative of the Anholm Bikeway (Broad Street Bicycle Boulevard) proposal. The preferred alternative creates safer streets for everyone—people who drive cars, people who ride bikes, and people who walk. The Lincoln Street alternative doesn’t do enough to raise ridership or increase safety for riders. Additionally, the preferred alternative will play a major role in providing Safe Routes to School for students attending Bishop’s Peak and Pacheco Elementary schools. Thank you for working to make SLO a better place to live. Debbie Jaffe San Luis Obispo

A fossil fuel relic

In the Feb. 1 edition, Al Fonzi’s “Tarnishing the Golden State” makes it clear that he is a relic of the 20th century. He seems to think that the fossil fuel industry should be allowed unregulated consumption of whatever can be sucked up from the earth as if there were no consequence to such rapaciousness. In his view, more oil and gas production will lower costs for everything that comes from fossil fuels, which apparently justifies permanent damage to our planet and the life upon it. I’d guess Mr. Fonzi would applaud the installation of oil derricks all along our treasured coastline. It is the 21st century. We live in a time where our very existence is threatened by the continued burning of fossil fuels. Growth and prosperity can no longer come from unfettered fossil fuel production. These are indeed new times, and I hope the New Times newspaper will find other writers who can contribute new solutions, not rehash old ones from a century that created the problem.

The perils of Paulding

When Jimmy Paulding announced his candidacy for San Luis Obispo County 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton’s seat, I was intrigued. He seemed like a nice young man on his way up with a good gift of gab. But after finding out that Supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson were pushing his candidacy, the blush went off the rose. Paulding’s parroting of the Gibson/ Hill agenda evaporated my interest in his candidacy. Consider these truths: • Paulding supports state regulation

of our local groundwater, while Compton successfully retained local control of our precious water resources. • Compton’s cautious approach to regulating an emerging cannabis industry was resisted by the Hill/ Gibson cabal that sided with carelessly expanding cannabis operations countywide regardless of the consequences. • Paulding supporters blame Compton for the Phillips 66 rail spur project when she cast the deciding vote against it. • Compton effectively secured $1.5 million for South County parks after discovering Gibson/Hill had hijacked nearly $10 million of development impact fees generated in the South County for projects in their own districts. Hill and Gibson will do anything to defeat Compton in seizing power for themselves. The perils of Paulding are there for all to see. Let’s keep an effective Lynn Compton as our supervisor.

The price of cannabis

With California’s experiment in legalizing marijuana, thanks to Governor-would-be Gavin Newsom, the crows are coming home to roost. With the new murders of two more men in our local cannabis capital of California Valley, deadly drug criminality has metastasized itself in our fair county, and we are paying the price. Supervisors Adam Hill, Bruce Gibson, and their minion Jimmy Paulding, want to open the floodgates for this activity throughout our county, regardless of the consequences. That the board majority of Compton, Arnold, and Peschong has resisted these political drug pushers is to their great credit. Cannabis production in California isn’t going away anytime soon. It’s here to stay. But it’s a new challenge to our state and local government, one that needs to be treated with caution despite the pleadings and machinations of their opponents who would spread it everywhere. Thinking people know that Compton and company are doing right by us by walking before they run on this issue. Let’s keep them in office to protect our county and our children. Linda Trahey Los Osos

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY SHARON MCDANIEL

Dear Kevin McCarthy A s a former constituent of yours from San Luis Obispo County, I am writing to you, the current House Majority Leader, to express my concerns regarding the impact of climate change on the Central Coast of California in the past year. In February of last year, we experienced a storm with heavy rain and extremely strong winds that downed so many trees, closing so many roads, that I was unable to reach my house without slogging through mud in the dark. Schools were evacuated, state parks were closed due to storm damage, Amtrak trains couldn’t run so my son couldn’t get home from UCSB, and my home was without water and power for five days. December 2017 brought us the Thomas Fire, the largest wildfire in California history. The Ventura home we designed, built, and once lived in, burned to the ground alongside the neighboring homes. Relatives and friends also lost homes or had to deal with multiple evacuations. The fire burned two of my previous residences and came within 250 feet of burning down a third. The Thomas Fire followed the Tubbs Fire in October in Santa Rosa, which killed 40-plus people and burned more than 7,500 homes. Records show that wildfires in California are becoming more frequent and severe and fire season is lasting longer. Then the Central Coast experienced the devastating mudslides in Montecito—a result of the Thomas Fire. Family members evacuated, friends and

family were stranded due to impassible roadways. Several of my employees were unable to get to their jobs and were unable to work, affecting our income. A doctor that I knew, as well as his daughter, died, along with 19 other victims. Two people are still missing and presumed dead. Highway 101 was closed for nearly two weeks. In October, San Luis Obispo set a new all-time record of 114 degrees, and for the first time ever parts of the county had more than 30 days of 100-plus degree temperatures. When we built our house in 1990, there was no need for air conditioning. Cut to 2017, and we just spent a lot of money to install air conditioning in our home. My son recently went on a long-awaited Cal Poly Engineering ski trip to Tahoe, but they didn’t ski. Why? Because there was not enough snow. In the middle of January, the peak of the winter sports season, the snowpack was a fraction of normal. China Peak, the closest ski area to Bakersfield, is closed due to lack of snow. This condition is causing huge losses for winter sports businesses that depend on snow. California is continuing to face drought conditions, which will again impact farmers in the Central Valley. You should recognize that it’s mainly your constituency taking the financial hit for these weather-related catastrophes, not your financial backers. You do not accept the scientific consensus on climate change, you opposed President Obama’s Clean

advocate and Big Brother. I met Bryan about 21 years ago when I first became involved with BBBS, initially as a board advisor then as its first paid executive director. I learned that Bryan’s life changed dramatically when a tragic accident while attending Cal Poly left him a quadriplegic. The Bryan I knew expressed no bitterness, and through the help of family and friends carved out a life that I truly feel was heroic. Over the years, I never saw Bryan with less than a smile on his face and a gleam in his eyes. His life was far from easy, but he made more than the best of the situation. Bryan served as a role model for the young people he mentored and the adults who were privileged to work with and be his friend. As a current BBBS colleague of mine said, “a light has gone from our agency.” Thank you, Bryan. I know that you are now in a place enabling you to roam free for the first time in many years. Rest in peace my friend. Rick Cohen Avila Beach

the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area, but that’s not the community’s only issue. Last Nov. 4, candidate for 4th District supervisor Jimmy Paulding held a listening session in Nipomo. Bad air quality was one of the top problems identified, along with traffic (too fast in some places and too slow in others), and crime (the area feels unsafe and unsecure). Other concerns included the cost, quality, and supply of water; homelessness; and cannabis farming. There were also the things that Nipomo lacks: commercial and retail development; quality schools; public transit; affordable housing; a SLO County Sheriff’s Office substation; recreational opportunities for hikers, bikers, and dogs; and a vibrant downtown. Jimmy is interested in hearing directly from the people of Nipomo so that, when elected, he can focus on giving us another thing the town lacks: a responsive District 4 supervisor.

Power Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants, and you opposed the international agreement on climate change. I have watched you support Republican efforts to undo environmental regulations. You graduated with an MBA from CSU Bakersfield, so I assume you have learned critical thinking. You have two children, as do I, and I would hope that you want to leave a cleaner, healthier planet for them and your future grandchildren. Instead, I see you making it easier for companies to exploit and pollute the environment. Your legacy of denial and inaction will forever taint your reputation and how history views your actions while in office. Your legacy as a Republican will be that as a man who cared more about appeasing your wealthy donors than doing what will benefit your constituents. I suggest you look at the cost of extreme weather to the United States’ economy. In 2017, there were 16 extreme weather events causing more than $1 billion in damage. The expense of cleaning up after hurricanes in Florida and Texas, wildfires in California, floods in the Midwest and California, tornadoes and drought is growing. That should get your attention, but instead your priorities are giving tax breaks to the wealthy, when we could be spending those dollars on infrastructure and natural disasters. I’m 65 years old and have lived in California my whole life. This year has

been a series of unprecedented events: I’ve never had a house I lived in burn down. I’ve never known anyone who died in a mudslide. I’ve never had relatives and friends endure repeated evacuations. I’ve never gone without water and power for more than a few hours, much less five days. I’ve never not been able to drive up the road to my house because of fallen trees. Highway 101 through the Central Coast has never been closed and totally impassable for days on end. All of these things happened to me or my family and friends in less than a year. These are all weather-related firsts, and I don’t believe they are coincidental. I would like to share a Neil deGrasse Tyson quote with you: “When you have people who don’t know much about science standing in denial of it, and rising to power, that is a recipe for the complete dismantling of our informed democracy.” When (not if) scientists are proven to be correct about human activity causing climate change, our children and grandchildren are going to look to our generation’s actions and assign blame to those who were put on notice and chose not to act. As majority leader, you will be fairly assigned blame. You have the opportunity to choose a different path. There are more important things than winning elections—namely, your children and their children. They are the ones who will pay the price. Please make your decisions based on science, not politics. ∆ Sharon McDaniel lives in Arroyo Grande. Send your thoughts through the editor at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

Street talk Social media sound off

New Times readers took to Facebook and our website to react to the Feb. 1 news story, “Rape case against local Uber driver echoes concerns in 2017 lawsuit.”


Opinion

The Shredder

Futility at its finest I ’m not sure which is worse, a former mayor of San Luis Obispo calling a proposed bike lane “gigantic urban rape” or a sitting county supervisor telling one of his constituents to “fuck off” for writing a letter to the editor. But then there’s the aftermath of both situations, where sitting SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon is attempting to shame the SLO Tribune for daring to print former Mayor Ken Schwartz’s letter, and SLO County 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill publicly states that he is going to “absorb all our community’s hate and be blasted into space with the ghetto kids.” Both the causes and the effects of these public spats highlight the fraying shreds of what’s left of political discussions over disagreements. Welcome to President Donald Trump’s Great America. Just look at the Facebook thread—yes, social media, a pillar of our crumbling ability to compromise—on the New Times story about how Uber makes it really easy for its drivers to target and sexually assault young women who are intoxicated. Susie N Marc Barnum (BTW, WTF do couples share a Facebook page? Over it!) is/are pissed at us for not calling an Uber driver an “illegal immigrant” (I guess calling him a “Mexican national” wasn’t good enough) and for saying that the “women were drunk.” (Listen you lady/ dude/couple you, that’s the whole point

of the damn story!) He/she/they lumped us in with the #failingNewYorkTimes and called the story “#fakenews.” We’ve finally hit the big time! CNN better watch out! And when did the five members of the SLO County Board of Supervisors become divided into what the good folks who email New Times letters to the editor call the “conservative cabal” and the “Democratic cabal.” It’s not like it’s a big damn secret where they stand politically. Don’t be so dramatic. But back to my favorite rose-adorned leading lady. There’s this little thing called the First Amendment. And from the sounds of it, Heidi, you should leave decisions on censorship to the newspaper that’s been practicing the constitutional right of free speech for more than a century. Do you really want them to not print an opinion piece written by a former mayor in which he actually writes a sentence like this one: “The rape will not be performed by a male penis, but by thousands of inanimate bicycles guided by individuals who will have absolutely no understanding of that precious tranquility they will be destroying in their mindless focus … ”? OMG, I can’t even finish the stupid sentence it’s so aggravatingly long. Schwartz is clearly a privileged old white man who’s never interacted with

the potential of being sexually assaulted by a male penis, but possibly has had a weird experience with a bicycle. He’s an idiot who hasn’t truly reflected on the difficult conversation our nation is having about rape and how commonplace sexual assault is. But his letter’s extreme tone is definitive of the rhetoric that our society spits out. The Trib should absolutely be highlighting the current state of political discourse by printing a letter to the editor such as Schwartz’s. That way the person—I’m looking at you Keith “I hate Adam Hill but love Ken Schwartz” Gurnee, who once suggested that SLO needed to “honor” Schwartz by installing a bronze statue of the former mayor in Mission Plaza—can advocate for something else, like, oh, I don’t know, a former mayor not to use the term “urban rape” to define the construction of a controversial bike lane. And you, Heidi, were absolutely right in calling Schwartz out for what he put in that letter to the editor. For saying “the tone and tenor of this discussion and other topics has been out of control,” and “at the foundation of this, we must collectively stand on civility to engage in meaningful and productive dialogue.” What I’m wondering is, when are you going to turn that push for civility on a

member of your own party? Yup, I’m talking about the man who wants to shoot into space alongside the “ghetto kids.” The man who thinks there’s no room for civility in politics, as he opined in a New Times commentary not too long ago (“Time to speak out,” Jan. 18). Adam, you told Mark Burnes (a constituent who used to support you) in a very long back-and-forth over Facebook Messenger that you live in Shell Beach—one of the richest little enclaves of McMansions in SLO County. How many ghetto kids do you actually know? Does it hurt when you can’t claim that a person who criticizes you, such as Burnes, isn’t part of the CalCoastNews/Times cabal of Hill haters? He doesn’t support you anymore because you’re incapable of responding professionally to people who disagree with or critique you. And how does that further the political will of the constituents you were elected to represent? Case in point: You responded via Facebook to Burnes’ Tribune letter (it was critical of Andrea Seastrand more so than you) by saying, “Thanks but no thanks for your stupid letter … . Fuck off. All talk, no balls.” Wow. That’s exactly the kind of behavior we’ve come to expect from you. New Times will be waiting for your predictably nasty response in electronic form. Please don’t disappoint. ∆ The Shredder prefers email critiques from his elected representatives. Send comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

BY GLEN STARKEY

Wouldn’t it be nice … …to see original Beach Boy Al Jardine in an intimate concert?

A

l Jardine is sometimes referred to as the “lost” beach boy. After all, he was the only member who wasn’t a Wilson brother (Brian, Carl, Dennis) or related to the Wilsons (Mike Love). Born in Ohio, Al attended Hawthorne High School with Brian Wilson, and the two are arguably the original Beach Boys, with Carl and Mike added later, and Dennis after that. The band’s first hit “Surfin’,” featured Jardine on bass, though he later became the band’s lead guitarist, backup singer, and occasional lead singer on hits such as “Help Me Rhonda,” “Then I Kissed Her,” “I Know There’s an Answer,” and other songs. “Surfin’” climbed to No. 75 on the Billboard charts, but after the band’s first royalty check came in and it was less than $1,000, Jardine quit the band to pursue dentistry. About a year later, Brian asked him to rejoin The Beach Boys and he did. The rest, as they say, is history … welldocumented history! The Beach Boys are one of the most written-about bands ever. Los Osos-based Beach Boys author Jon Stebbins (The Beach Boys in Concert, The Beach Boys FAQ, and The Lost Beach Boy) shot me a quick email when he heard Jardine would be presenting a concert called A Postcard From California: From the Very First Song with a Founding Member of The Beach Boys on Saturday, Feb. 17, in Arroyo Grande’s Clark Center

I think it will be a fun show for any locals with a like for the Beach Boys and great songs. Al’s son Matt performs with him, and he has a fantastic falsetto that covers the super high parts required in the Beach Boys harmony.” Jardine is a music legend, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and recipient of a 2001 Lifetime Grammy Award. According to press information, “In an intimate, acoustic setting, including rare images and video, Mr. Jardine takes us back into a history so improbable that it must have been meant to be! From meeting Elvis Presley to making Pet Sounds, here are the songs, stories, and harmonies that moved generations, all in one unforgettable evening.” Sounds like a blast and a chance to hear stories from someone who was in the thick of it!

Arts Center, witness Black Violin’s multigenre sound called “classical boom,” which blends classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music. Our troops in Iraq and attendees of Barack Obama’s official President’s Inaugural Ball have enjoyed the duo’s groundbreaking collaboration. Individually and together, Black Violin has shared stages with P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, and The Eagles, among others; they also creatively worked with the Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean, and Alicia Keys. Plus, Wil B. and Kev Marcus have composed music for television’s The Pitch and have appeared on HBO’s Ballers as well as The Tonight Show and Ellen. Stereotypes, their most recent album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and No. 4 on the Billboard R&B Chart.

Families that play together stay together! When your dad is musical alchemist, ethnomusicologist, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning music educator, and all-around entertainment Mad Hatter Joe Craven, do you have any other choice than to become a gifted performer yourself? For Hattie Craven, I’m guessing the path was clear. The multiinstrumentalist, actor, dancer, and vocalist picked up the fiddle at age 4 and soon joined Laura Love on stage at the Kate Wolf Music Festival. She was doing musical theater by age 6 (one of her older brothers is now a professional actor, natch!). Hattie recorded her first album, Eleven, at age 11, with help from her dad and his band The Joe Craven Trio. Her most recent album, Bright, was recorded at 15 with just her and her dad. Currently a high school student at Sacramento’s Performing and Fine Arts Academy, she, her father, and his band The Sometimers will join together to BLACK VIOLIN LIVE Black Violin blends classical, hip hop, rock, and more. Feb. 17, 8 p.m. $25.60-$52. 805-756-4849. calpolyarts.org. Performing Arts Center, 1 Grand Ave., San Luis Obispo.

play two SLOfolks shows this weekend, on Friday, Feb. 9, at Coalesce Bookstore (7 p.m.; all ages; $20 at (805) 772-2880); and Saturday, Feb. 10, at Castoro Cellars (7:30p.m.; all ages; (805) 2380725 or Boo Boo Records). I’ve seen the Cravens perform together at the Live Oak Music Festival (by the way, early discount tickets are currently available for the June 15 through 17 festival now at liveoakfest.org), and they’re fantastic fun, delivering a mix of roots, folk, jazz, and world music sounds. Don’t miss it!

soul, Tex-Mex, funk, blues, rock, and Latin sounds to The Siren for a free afternoon show on Saturday, Feb. 10 (3 p.m.). There’s a Leather & Lace Drag Show featuring the SLOQueerdos later that night (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $10 presale or $15 at the door). Hey, it’s Morro Bay’s first drag show! Woop woop! Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents team up with The Siren for two of the upcoming shows, starting with progressive bluegrass act Front Country on Sunday, Feb. 11 (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $10 presale at Boo Boo

Records and ticketfly.com or $12 at the door). Hailing from the Bay Area, the band found its sound playing acoustic jams in the Mission District. Made up of a mandolinist with a degree in composition and classical guitar, a hard rock and world music guitarist, a jazz and bluegrass bassist, a honky-tonk and electropop violinist, and a soulful lead singer who’s also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Front Country “forged a sound hell-bent on merging the musical past with the future,” according to their press materials. I can’t believe it, but there are still some tickets left for The Blasters show

next Thursday, Feb. 15, at The Siren (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $20 presale at Boo Boo Records and ticketfly.com or $25 at the door). These can’t last so buy yours now! The Siren presents another in-house show with former Orgone singer Niki J Crawford next Friday, Feb. 16 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $13 presale at ticketfly.com or Boo Boo Records or $15 at the door). I heard some rough tracks from Crawford’s upcoming album The Second Truth, and she’s sounding amazing! Soulful and funky horn-driving sounds, deep grooves, and lyrics that could have been written

rowing up, Cindy Long could tell what day of the week it was by which Western TV show was airing that night. Gunsmoke in particular was a family favorite that she watched with her dad. “I’ve always had a fascination with the West,” Long said. “I grew up with those shows and always romanticized life in the West.” While Long’s pull toward the West was temporarily put aside, the now North Carolinabased artist returned to it about the same time she rekindled her love of drawing, roughly 14 years ago. Long’s work, along with other artists from around the country, is currently on display at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles as part of the In Love with the West show. Artist and guest curator Don Weller said that for this show he looked specifically for other artists who either lived the Western lifestyle or were close observers of it. “People don’t realize that cowboys are still out West doing what they’ve been doing for centuries,” Weller, who Go west is based in Utah, said. “You don’t see The In Love with the West show will be on them, they’re up over the hill.” display at Studios on Long wouldn’t call herself a the Park in Paso Robles cowgirl, but she is deeply drawn to through Feb. 25. Visit the stories of people who do. studiosonthepark.org for “I don’t live it, but I’m close to it,” more information. Long said. The first thing you’ll notice about Long’s intricate graphite pencil drawing portraits is the faces. All of her pieces—like Utia Chee, a stunning depiction of a somber, serious looking Native American woman—focus on the soulful, distant eyes or chipper little smile of her models, most of whom are cowboys and Native Americans, carrying on the values of the

Western lifestyle even today. “People who live and work the Western lifestyle are unique people,” Long said. “They have to love what they do. I hope that people look at my artwork and not just see a portrait of a person, but that they take away a feeling and maybe they want to know a little more about that person or maybe they create a story in their minds.” While faces and their features are dominant in Long’s work, they’re noticeably absent from Weller’s vibrant watercolor pieces, like Comes in Swingin’, that often show cowboys hard at work, roping cattle or riding horses. The Utah artist is intentional with this choice. “I like enough detail that the people who were there will recognize the way people were dressed or the markings on a horse. I want TRUE TO LIFE Whenever possible, North Carolina artist Cindy Long prefers to use models in her pieces, like Utia Chee, who really live and embody the Western lifestyle.

to see the brush strokes. If I wanted a lot of detail, I’d take a photo.” Once upon a time, Weller thought he’d be a cowboy like his subjects. In college he roped horses and calves competitively at rodeos, but he wasn’t quiet fast enough to make a living at it. Now Weller has his own horses and helps out at friends’ ranches from time to time, lending a hand or taking photos to work from in the studio where he paints. “In a way it’s a kind of study of humans and horses working together,” Weller said of his work. While the physical demands on a cowboy or ranch hand make for a tough life, Weller hopes viewers will take away a sense of lightness from the In Love with the West show as well. “I hope they get a sense that the process was fun,” Weller said. “I think you’ll sense the joy in most of the artists’ work.” Δ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley is out on the range at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

Let’s get through this together.” Alas, I was stuck soberly in that seat for 99 minutes, wondering what in the world drew a group of talented actors to this script. Like you said, the real-life character and story of Sarah and her house are interesting enough on their own, and while there may be veins of truth in how HAUNTED OR GUILTY?

person was far less obsessed with the ghosts haunting her. Mirren is showbiz royalty. Let’s all just forget she was a part of this and lobby IMDB to take it off of her credits. Glen I’m afraid the only people really excited about this film are those who run the Winchester attraction. The film was partially shot on location in San Jose, closing the city’s main tourist attraction for several days and allowing about half a dozen of its staff members to make their film debut as extras. The house had already reported an increase in attendance before the film was even released, and hopefully this lackluster ghost story won’t dissuade others from visiting. But I fear this film is as cursed as the writers would lead you to believe Sarah was. Yes, she lost her only child as an infant and her husband a short time after that, but she was also making $1,000 a day from her company, which was an enormous amount of money at the time. That’s the kind of curse some people could get behind. When the film tied the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to the activities of Winchester’s ghosts, the movie had sealed its fate as a total groaner. I’d love to see a real biopic of Sarah instead of this flappy piece of filmmaking. The acting is commendable and the house is fascinating, but save your money and take a trip up to San Jose to see the real thing live and in person. This forgettable and unnecessary film doesn’t have a ghost of a chance

being remembered. Anna The house is purposefully shrouded in mystery—no photography is allowed on tours, and past owners have added even more oddities as it changed hands over time. Seeing some of those on the big screen is admittedly kind of cool, but I have to agree that seeing the house in real life is much more fascinating. When the 1906 earthquake hit and damaged much of the construction, Sarah simply boarded up that wing of the house and moved on to building elsewhere. I too am much more interested in seeing a biopic of her and her eccentricities than a silly ghost story that fails to frighten. Alas, that isn’t what Winchester delivered, and this forgettable film does nothing but disappoint. Even the sometimes possessed, red headed kid Henry (Scicluna-O’Prey) can’t pull off creepy, and none of the characters had me invested in their fates. While I’m sure the hype of the film hasn’t hurt the tourist attraction, I’m guessing the tour guides know more fascinating actual history about it than the film portrays. There are even rooms that have always been closed to the public now open as part of the tour, so there’s even more reason to see it for yourself or go again if you’ve been before. Save what you would spend on a movie ticket for some sweet tchotchkes from the gift shop. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

Essentially a biographical portrait of Churchill, Darkest Hour leans on a phenomenal performance by Oldman to captivate the audience and make us feel the immensity of Europe teetering on the edge of destruction. Set in May of 1940, British Parliament has just ousted Neville Chamberlain as its Prime Minister as Hitler prepares to invade Belgium and Holland. Churchill is begrudgingly appointed as his successor, but fear and doubt still consumes the nation. Churchill assumes the helm with the message to the nation that accepting defeat isn’t an option. But he faces resistance from many members of Parliament and even members of his own cabinet, who bicker with him to settle a

peace treaty with Hitler, as millions of British soldiers’ lives are on the line. It’s Churchill’s commitment to the principles of his country and disdain for the moral atrocities of Nazism that compel him to push back against the momentum of a surrender. That’s what’s thrilling about this movie: the emotional battle between the convenience of giving up versus the profound consequences of that concession. Darkest Hour hits theaters at an appropriate time in history, when similar moral questions and human values are on the line. Churchill’s bluster and bombastic oration did remind me of President Donald Trump’s. But the push notification that arrived on my phone in the theater reporting Trump’s tweet to North Korea of having a “working” nuclear button on his

desk enlightened me to the fact that the intelligence, consciousness, and nuance of Churchill’s rhetoric has no comparison to the current U.S. president. (125 min.) —Peter Johnson

Downtown Centre, Stadium 10, Galaxy First-time director Michael Gracey helms The Greatest Showman, an original, straightto-screen musical inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum (played here by Hugh Jackman) and the formation of the Barnum and Bailey Circus. The film never claims to be wholly factual and only uses the aspects of Barnum’s life that fit into its desired rags-to-riches structure. Overall, The Greatest Showman is a mixed bag full of flawed and fun moments alike. It’s hard to tell how serious it takes itself at times, but the best parts are the unashamedly cheesy ones.

Writer-director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace) helms this Western set in 1892. Army Capt. Joseph J. Blocker (Christian Bale) is tasked with one final, unsavory assignment before retirement: He and a detail must escort Cheyenne Chief Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) and his family from a New Mexican military prison—where they’ve languished for seven years—through hostile territory and back to their Montana homeland. Hostiles opens with a brutal Indian raid on an unprotected homestead, setting up the idea that the Indians are ruthless killers. Cut to Capt. Blocker and his men taking an Indian family in custody and bringing them to prison. Hostiles quickly makes clear that in the colonization of the U.S., both the colonized and the colonizer are left damaged. Blocker’s second in command, Master Sgt. Thomas Metz (Rory Cochrane), is clearly struggling with how the U.S. has been handling the Indian “problem,” and he tells Blocker he’s reached his limits. Blocker, on the other hand, isn’t yet that evolved, but this is ultimately his story, and he learns to see U.S. conquest from his enemy’s point of view. As the story begins, having seen too many good men butchered, Blocker hates the “natives,” yet he’s become a butcher in return. He fought Chief Yellow Hawk at Wounded Knee, so his animosity is personal. When Blocker’s commanding officer Col. Abraham Biggs

(Stephen Lang) threatens Blocker’s pension if he refuses to see the Chief; his daughter, Living Woman (Tanaya Beatty); son, Black Hawk (Adam Beach); daughter-in-law, Elk Woman (Q’orinaka Kilcher); and grandson, Little Bear (Xavier Horsechief) back to Montana, Blocker reluctantly agrees, and his squad sets off through hostile territory populated by murderous groups of the last remaining wild Indians, unscrupulous fur trappers, and the settlers at their mercy. It’s a dark, brooding story about the psychological damage of warfare and subjugation, and the violent clash of civilizations. As Blocker says, “When we lay our heads down here, we’re all prisoners.” We meet the sole survivor of the homestead attack shortly after the group departs. Rosalie (Rosamund Pike) witnessed her husband (Scott Shepherd), two daughters (Ava and Stella Cooper), and infant killed. Blocker displays great sensitivity for her trauma. During a stop in Colorado at another Army fort, Blocker is tasked with transporting a military criminal—Sgt. Charles Wills (Ben Foster)—along his way. They clearly share a past together. The dynamics between the various members definitely sizzle, and Blocker eventually grows close to Rosalie, who also develops a respect for their Indian companions.

I love You, Friday Night Lights) comes I, Tonya, based on unbelievable, but true events. This mock-u-mentary style film is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie), and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin Carver). The cast is rounded out with a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as Harding’s impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden.

all joined together to fight common enemies: the Comanche war party that killed Rosalie’s family and a trio of fur trappers—Scott Anderson, Boots Southerland, and Dicky Eklund Jr.—who think they can take what they want without consequence. They’re wrong. The action episodes are surprising and brutal but also somewhat underplayed, with the quiet moments of character interaction making the biggest impact. Overall, the film’s bleak, and it’s clearly influenced by classic Westerns such as John Ford’s The Searchers (1956). The character arcs of the two principal players make the film rise above boilerplate Westerns. Rosalie goes from traumatized victim to strong and resilient survivor. Blocker is a closet intellectual reading Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in Latin, and though he seems at first wholly hardened, he reveals deep wells of emotion as the story unfolds. It’s also worth noting that Masanobu Takayanagi’s cinematography is stunning and worthy of a classic Western. Studi is a study in dignity. Foster is as engaging as ever. Cochrane is as good as I’ve ever seen him. Hostiles doesn’t quite rise to the level of the greatest Western films. It’s no Unforgiven (1992), Red River (1948), or Shane (1953), but it’s a worthy offering that approaches its subject with a lot more subtly and sensitivity that many recent period Westerns. If you’re a fan of Old West tales, this is worth a trip to the theater. (134 min.) —Glen Starkey

At the Movies have a group of four archetypal teenagers. You know, similar to The Breakfast Club. You’ve got the nerd Spencer (Alex Wolff), his former best friend turned jock Fridge (Ser’ Darius Blain), a self-absorbed popular Bethany (Madison Iseman), and smart girl Martha (Morgan Turner) who’s a little salty about her peers. The crew gets detention and winds up having to remove staples from magazines for the evening. Anyone else find that to be an unusual punishment? To top it off, they’re doing it in an abandoned classroom filled with old school memorabilia and random junk. That’s where the unlikely group finds Jumanji (this time in video game form). They decide to ditch their task to play it. Once the game is plugged in and rebooting, the kids are sucked into the console, entering into the Jumanji world. But there’s a catch: They have assumed the bodies of their avatars. This is where the fun really starts; Spencer turns into Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson). His weakness: he has none. Fridge turns into Franklin “Mouse” Finbar (Kevin Hart). You can only guess where the nickname comes from. Notorious hottie Bethany turns into the nerdy, male Professor “Shelly” Oberon (Jack Black), a cartographer, cryptographer, archaeologist, and paleontologist. Shy Martha turns into Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan). She’s a martial artist and dance fighter with very short and tight clothing. With their new personas, the group must learn to work together and trust one another so they can return the jewel known as the Jaguar’s Eye to the jaguar statue. This film does what many remakes fail to do, which is successfully entertain its audience. I wasn’t quite sure how this would go walking into the theater. But these actors did a hilarious job delivering as prepubescent teenagers in way over their heads. I was laughing nonstop throughout the film. (112 min.) —Karen Garcia

One of the things the film does well is capture what a weird time high school is. It’s like a bubble of unreality. Insecurities rule the day, and in general, high school students have no idea that most of the popular kids have peaked and will grow up to be unhappy losers while the misfits inherit the earth, but as viewers we can see the writing on the wall.

Set in 1950s London, Woodcock’s fastidious life is turned upside down by Alma (Vicky Krieps), a willful young woman who becomes his lover and muse. All the worst human emotions are on display in Phantom Thread, a story about ego, jealousy, manipulation, hostility, and disappointment. Incongruently, it’s also very funny. Like many of Anderson’s stories, Phantom Thread is about big personalities with compromised morals. That can make it difficult to find anyone to root for; however, Anderson’s sumptuous filmmaking, attention to detail, and unflinching gaze at his complicated characters is as gorgeous and elevated as one of Reynolds’ haute couture designs. It also helps that the acting is truly amazing, and Anderson gives his players the space they need to develop their characters.

For 10 years she’s walked and cleaned the halls of the facility with her friend Zelda (Octavia Spencer). Every day Elisa sticks to her routine: take a shower, polish her shoes, make lunch as well as a meal for her neighbor and friend Giles (Richard Jenkins), and then catch the bus to work. Her life takes a turn when she and Zelda are called into a room to clean up a bloody mess created by “the asset” (Doug Jones), at least that’s what the scientists and government officials are calling it. The asset is a scaled creature from South Africa that now resides in a water tank against its will. Elisa is drawn to the creature, maybe because she too is an outsider in the world that she lives in. She forms a bond with the creature that feels more like love than friendship. But her days of sharing hard-boiled eggs for lunch and listening to her vinyl record player are numbered; the very fate of the creature is on the line.

Dostrum and his warlord counterparts are as likely to fight each other as their shared enemy the Taliban. What 12 Strong depicts is one of the U.S.’s most amazing and unlikely military victories. The film’s not interested in the larger ramifications of war. In fact, it barely touches on the psychological consequences of combat, and it’s certainly not interested in the pros and cons of American neo-colonialism and “nation building.” However, if you want to see some heroic Green Berets get some much-deserved payback for 9/11, strap in and take the ride.

Stumbling on new experiences Smack in between the Central Coast and Southern California are the delights of sunny Ventura County

G

rowing up in Los Angeles County, I was raised in a small city that’s connected to so many others. So I like to say that I grew up in Harbor City, Torrance, Lomita, and Redondo Beach. When I was around 7 years old, my mother frequently drove me to museums like The Getty and the La Brea Tar Pits. As a teenager and later a community college student, I pranced around the heart of LA.

LA County has been very good to me over the years, but I wanted a change of venue. After wrapping up my two years of community college, life took me to Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. To be honest I love both for different reasons, and I like to think I have the best of both worlds. When I do visit home, I always drive through Ventura County but I never really thought much of it. I can’t see much

Welcome to SLO County’s first ever “mobile micro farm.” If you haven’t already gathered: It’s a whole new world. Bloom Microgreens wasn’t always so mobile or so quirky. Kara Strauss and her husband, Adam, once owned two traditional greenhouses—about 6,000 square feet of growing space—on Clark Valley Road in Los Osos. More recently, they moved across the street to a new property and expanded the operation to 8,000 square feet of vertical farming. Chefs and markets and restaurants continued to clamor for the zesty baby arugula, spicy radish, and crunchy bean sprouts, among dozens more varieties of delicious, nutritious greenery.

Personal? I’d agree. There is just something grounding about walking into a greenhouse. You smell the intoxicating scent of herbs and soil. The warm air is alive with growth. “The greenhouse just brings people down to earth. You can see people step inside and slow their breathing,” Kara says. “We went from garage to green house to the bus. Now we get to really share that experience with more people.” You heard it here first. Keep an eye out for the green bus filled with green stuff. Really, you can’t miss it.

No matter how you feel about Morro Bay’s iconic stacks (an inextricable part of the landscape and city character/a total eyesore), we can all agree on good beer. Three Stacks and a Rock Brewing Co. isn’t just interested in making its beer “good.” The brewery wants to showcase a unique experience so small it’s actually mighty. That’s why Three Stacks is the region’s only “nano brewery,” producing in batches of just three barrels or less. You can also order up guest tap goodies— including local brews, cider, or wine—and snacks like sliders, sausages, a prosciutto grilled cheese, and more. If you’re headed to the beach as the weather warms, you’ll want to swing by the brew pub and tasting room and grab a not-so-teeny pint. These batches may be small, but the beer is plentiful! Three Stacks and a Rock Brewing is located at 3118 Main St., suite D in Morro Bay. Hours are Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., Friday from 2 to 9 p.m., Saturday from noon to 9 p.m., Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., and Monday from 3 to 8 p.m. Kitchen closed Monday. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain likes her beer nano but her grilled cheeses macro at hthomas@newtimesslo.com.

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: APRIL 3, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept: 9, in Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo, located at 1035 Palm Street, Room 385, San Luis Obispo, CA 93408. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Describe how you plan to shake off some of your tame and overly civilized behavior. Testify at freewillastrology.com. ARIES (March 21-April 19): British athlete Liam Collins is an accomplished hurdler. In 2017, he won two medals at the World Masters Athletics Indoor Championships in South Korea. Collins is also a stuntman and street performer who does shows in which he hurtles over barriers made of chainsaws and leaps blindfolded through flaming hoops. For the foreseeable future, you may have a dual capacity with some resemblances to his. You could reach a high point in expressing your skills in your chosen field, and also branch out into extraordinary or flamboyant variations on your specialty.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When he was 32, the man who would later be known as Dr. Seuss wrote his first kid’s book, And To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. His efforts to find a readership went badly at first. Twenty-seven publishers rejected his manuscript. On the verge of abandoning his quest, he ran into an old college classmate on the street. The friend, who had recently begun working at Vanguard Press, expressed interest in the book. Voila! Mulberry Street got published. Dr. Seuss later said that if, on that lucky day, he had been strolling on the other side of the street, his career as an author of children’s books might never have happened. I’m telling you this tale, Taurus, because I suspect your chances at experiencing a comparable stroke of luck in the coming weeks will be extra high. Be alert!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A survey of British Christians found that most are loyal to just six of the Ten Commandments. While they still think it’s bad to, say, steal and kill and lie, they don’t regard it as a sin to revere idols, work on the Sabbath, worship other gods, or use the Lord’s name in a curse. In accordance with the astrological omens, I encourage you to be inspired by their rebellion. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to re-evaluate your old traditions and belief systems, and then discard anything that no longer suits the new person you’ve become.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): While serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Don Karkos lost the sight in his right eye after being hit by shrapnel. Sixty-four years later, he regained his vision when he got butted in the head by a horse he was grooming. Based on the upcoming astrological omens, I’m wondering if you’ll soon experience a metaphorically comparable restoration. My analysis suggests that you’ll undergo a healing in which something you lost will return or be returned.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The candy cap mushroom, whose scientific name is Lactarius rubidus, is a burnt orange color. It’s small to medium-sized and has a convex cap. But there its resemblance to other mushrooms ends. When dried out, it tastes and smells like maple syrup. You can grind it into a powder and use it to sweeten cakes and cookies and custards. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, this unusual member of the fungus family can serve as an apt metaphor for you right now. You, too, have access to a resource or influence that is deceptive, but in a good way: offering a charm and good flavor different from what its outer appearance might indicate.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A grandfather from New Jersey decided to check the pockets of an old shirt he didn’t wear very often. There Jimmie Smith found a lottery ticket he had stashed away months previously. When he realized it had a winning number, he cashed it in for $24.1 million—just two days before it was set to expire. I suspect there may be a comparable development in your near future, although the reward would be more modest. Is there any potential valuable that you have forgotten about or neglected? It’s not too late to claim it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The U.S. Geological Survey recently announced that it had come up with improved maps of

aduLt services

the planet’s agricultural regions. Better satellite imagery helped, as did more thorough analysis of the imagery. The new data show that the Earth is covered with 618 million more acres of croplands than had previously been thought. That’s 15 percent higher than earlier assessments! In the coming months, Libra, I’m predicting a comparable expansion in your awareness of how many resources you have available. I bet you will also discover that you’re more fertile than you have imagined.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 1939, Scorpio comic book writer Bob Kane co-created the fictional science-fiction superhero Batman. The “Caped Crusader” eventually went on to become an icon, appearing in blockbuster movies as well as TV shows and comic books. Kane said one of his inspirations for Batman was a flying machine envisioned by Leonard da Vinci in the early 16th century. The Italian artist and inventor drew an image of a winged glider that he proposed to build for a human being to wear. I bring this up, Scorpio, because I think you’re in a phase when you, like Kane, can draw inspiration from the past. Go scavenging through history for good ideas!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I was watching a four-player poker game on TV. The folksy commentator said that the assortment of cards belonging to the player named Mike was “like Anna Kournikova,” because “it looks great but it never wins.” He was referring to the fact that during her career as a professional tennis player, Anna Kournikova was feted for her physical beauty but never actually won a singles title. This remark happens to be a useful admonishment for you Sagittarians in the coming weeks. You should avoid relying on anything that looks good but never wins. Put your trust in influences that are a bit homely or unassuming but far more apt to contribute to your success.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A Chinese man named Wang Kaiyu bought two black-furred puppies from a stranger and took them home to his farm. As the months passed by, Wang noticed that his pets seemed unusually hungry and aggressive. They would sometimes eat his chickens. When they were two years old, he finally figured out that they weren’t dogs, but rather Asian black bears. He turned them over to a local animal rescue center. I bring this to your attention, Capricorn, because I suspect it may have a resemblance to your experience. A case of mistaken identity? A surprise revealed in the course of a ripening process? A misunderstanding about what you’re taking care of? Now is a good time to make adjustments and corrections.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Charles Nelson Reilly was a famous American actor, director, and drama teacher. He appeared in or directed numerous films, plays, and TV shows. But in the 1970s, when he was in his 40s, he also spent quality time impersonating a banana in a series of commercials for Bic Banana Ink Crayons. So apparently he wasn’t overly attached to his dignity. Pride didn’t interfere with his ability to experiment. In his pursuit of creative expression, he valued the arts of playing and having fun. I encourage you to be inspired by his example during the coming weeks, Aquarius.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): According to ancient Greek writer Herodotus, Persians didn’t hesitate to deliberate about important matters while drunk. However, they wouldn’t finalize any intoxicated decision until they had a chance to re-evaluate it while sober. The reverse was also true. Choices they made while sober had to be reassessed while they were under the influence of alcohol. I bring this to your attention not because I think you should adhere to similar guidelines in the coming weeks. I would never give you an oracle that required you to be buzzed. But I do think you’ll be wise to consider key decisions from not just a coolly rational mindset, but also from a frisky intuitive perspective. To arrive at a wise verdict, you need both. ∆
