Latest Cal Poly master plan includes development on campus farmland

C

al Poly plans to convert several acres of prime farmland to non-agricultural uses in order to accommodate future expansion, according to an environmental impact report for the school’s 20-year master plan. According to the report, the latest version of the master plan would convert more than 32 acres of on-campus farmland into sports fields, parking lots, residential housing, and other uses. While the report stated that the impact of converting the farmland was significant and unavoidable, the university has promised to offset the lost acres. The recently released draft environmental impact report stated that the current version of the master plan would convert 16 acres of prime farmland located to the north of Highland Drive between Mt. Bishop Road and the Union Pacific Railroad line to non-agricultural uses, including sports fields and a new parking area, which will serve new nearby student housing. In addition, the master plan also calls for the construction of a data center, business park, and residential neighborhood northwest of Stenner Creek Road, as well as the relocation of the university’s facilities service yard to the same area, resulting in the conversion of 12 acres of land classified as “farmland of statewide importance” for non-agricultural use. A planned residential neighborhood located on Cal Poly land to the south-east of campus would convert an additional 4.75 acres of land designated as “farmland of local potential” to non-agricultural uses. This isn’t the first time that the university included plans to convert or get rid of agricultural land in its master plan. In April

Judge opposes $85 million Diablo Canyon settlement with SLO agencies In a blow to San Luis Obispo County cities and schools, a judge with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has ruled against a negotiated settlement between PG&E and local agencies that promised $85 million to help offset the impacts of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant decommissioning. CPUC Administrative Law Judge Peter Allen submitted the ruling on Nov. 8, which came on the heels of a year’s worth of hearings to process PG&E’s application to retire the nuclear plant by 2025. Within that application was the $85 million mitigation plan to ease the pain of lost of tax revenue and economic benefits to SLO County, its seven cities, and the San Luis Coastal Unified School District (SLCUSD). Allen argued in his ruling that the settlement shouldn’t be paid for by PG&E ratepayers. “It is essential to consider whether the proposed settlement is fair to PG&E’s ratepayers, who are being asked to pay the $85 million cost of the payment program,” Allen wrote in his ruling. “This commission is reluctant to require ratepayers to pay for

the cost of local government services that are typically paid for by taxpayers, no matter how beneficial those services may be.” Allen added: “If legislation specifically directs this commission to provide ratepayer funding for the [settlement], the commission would do so.” He also noted that PG&E could use shareholder funds to pay for it instead. The CPUC board, not Allen, will have the final say on the settlement. His ruling will go before the board as a recommendation on Nov. 28. Nonetheless, it’s less than encouraging to local officials who waited on pins and needles for the CPUC to approve the mitigation funds. “We have eagerly awaited that ruling,” said Eric Prater, superintendent for the SLCUSD, in a blog post to the school community. “Unfortunately, Judge Allen did not approve the proposed [plan]. In the meantime, we will explore all potential legal and political options at our disposal.” State officials representing San Luis Obispo also weighed in on the ruling, expressing disappointment and commitment to continue advocating for funding. “The proposed decision is disappointing on a number of levels,” 35th District State Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham said in a NEWS continued page 6

Nude man allegedly started brush fire to ‘set the land free’

A 49-year-old man facing a felony arson charge allegedly admitted to starting a brush fire that burned nearly 2 acres of land in rural Arroyo Grande last month. During a Nov. 7 hearing in SLO County Superior Court, a Cal Fire investigator said that the man, Ezequiel Cisneros, admitted that he started the Oct. 6 blaze, located on a hillside near Talley Farms Fresh Harvest and the Las Ventanas housing tract, when he was questioned shortly after being found nude at the scene of the fire. At time, Cisneros also allegedly made bizarre statements about why he set the fire. “He told me he started it to set the land free,” Cal Fire SLO Cpt. Kevin McLean said. Ryan Talley, part-owner of Talley Farms, said he initially spotted the fire while driving that evening. When he and a Talley Farms employee took a water truck up the hillside to put the fire out, Talley said they found Cisneros standing nude by a van surrounded by the flames. “He was just standing there,” Talley testified. “The fire was all around him until we put it out.” As firefighters arrived to extinguish the blaze, McLean said he questioned Cisneros, who does not speak English, using an interpreter. Through the interpreter, Cisneros reportedly told him that he started the fire using “his hand and a lighter.” McLean testified that Cisneros was found in possession of a lighter and a glass pipe at the scene of the fire. Near the fire, McLean said he discovered remnants of burned clothing. According to McLean, Cisneros then gave his explanation of why he’d started the fire, claiming he was trying to “give life to the people.” Under cross-examination from Cisneros’s attorney, Matthew Guerrero, McLean said that he did not know whether Cisneros was intoxicated or impaired at the time of the incident. Despite his odd remarks, both McLean and Talley characterized Cisneros’ demeanor during the fire and his questioning as subdued and cooperative. “He was docile,” Talley said. “He wasn’t yelling or screaming or anything like that.” At the hearing, Judge Hugh Mullin III found that there was enough evidence for the case to move forward. If convicted, Cisneros could face up to six years in prison. As of Nov. 8, he was being held in SLO County Jail on $50,000 bond. —Chris McGuinness

Several county roads get speed limit tweaks Drivers zipping down a handful of popular San Luis Obispo County roads will have to hit their brakes in most cases, after the Board of Supervisors approved a series of new speed limits on Nov. 7. Nine streets in Los Osos, SLO, Templeton, San Miguel, Paso Robles, and the California Valley will have different

VIEWER DISCRETION speed limits and/or additional signage after recent traffic studies—conducted in part to address bubbling public concern about their safety— suggested the tweaks. Traffic studies are also part of a routine practice, according to public works officials, since speed limits become unenforceable by California Highway Patrol (CHP) when five to seven years pass without an analysis. In Los Osos, El Moro Avenue, Paso Robles Avenue, and Santa Ynez Avenue— three east-to-west residential streets—will be established as 25 mph zones and be marked with more signage. Buckley Road and Vachell Lane, located on the outskirts of San Luis Obispo where 720 new homes are proposed in the Avila Ranch project, will both become 50 mph zones. Buckley Road’s current speed limit is 55 mph and its perpendicular, Vachell Lane, was previously a 40 mph zone before the county removed the signage due to the speed limit being unenforceable, according to a county staff report. One of the goals of both tweaks, according to the report, is to “provide continuous speed limit between SLO city limits and Highway 227.” Templeton’s downtown Main Street will get a new speed limit of 40 mph, a 5 mph reduction from its current limit, which was requested by the Templeton Area Advisory Group. Two roads in North County without any marked speed limits—Monterey Road in Paso Robles and Cemetery Road in San Miguel—will now be 50 mph zones with signage. The only county road in the bunch where the speed limit will increase is Soda Lake Road in the California Valley, which connects Highway 58 to Highway 166 and traverses the Carrizo Plain. The old speed limit of 35 mph will jump to 50 mph, which officials say will make it enforceable for CHP. —Peter Johnson

Long-time assistant D.A. announces retirement

After more than 32 years, the SLO County District Attorney Office’s second in command has announced his plans to retire. Assistant District Attorney Lee Cunningham confirmed Nov. 7 that he plans to retire from his post effective Dec. 30. “The decision to retire has been a very difficult one for me, due to the fact that I truly love this job,” Cunningham wrote in a memo to the district attorney’s staff. “It has been a great pleasure to work with every one of you, to see you work every day, and to share the common goal of ‘truth and justice.’” Cunningham spent three years as SLO County District Attorney Dan Dow’s second in command, and had a lengthy career in local law enforcement and criminal justice in the county. It began in 1971, when he worked as a correctional officer at the California Men’s Colony state prison. He became a police officer with the SLO Police Department in 1973. During his time with the department, Cunningham also attended law school

and passed the California Bar exam. He joined the SLO County District Attorney’s Office in 1985 after serving as a private attorney for six years. In a written statement, Dow praised Cunningham for his work and its impact on the citizens of SLO County. “I am very grateful to Lee for his genuine friendship, his trusted advice, and his excellent service to this office and our community,” Dow wrote. Cunningham is also the father of state Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, who was elected to represent the 35th Assembly District in 2016. “I’ve always been proud of my father’s 40-plus-year career in public safety in our county, from correctional officer to police officer to prosecutor,” the assemblyman said in a written statement to New Times. “He is going to enjoy a well-earned retirement. Personally, I look forward to him having more time to be the world’s best grandpa.” As Cunningham prepares to end his 32-year career, the D.A.’s office will begin searching for his replacement. “We will be announcing the position and recruiting both inside and outside of the office,” Cunningham wrote in an email to New Times. —Chris McGuinness

Supes appoint a county administrative officer, ending contentious search

The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors resolved five months of gridlock on Nov. 7 and found a new county leader they could all agree on. Supervisors voted unanimously in closed session to appoint Public Works Director Wade Horton as chief administrative officer (CAO), the top county position, which has been vacant since June. Horton, a military veteran who worked eight years in the SLO-area public sector and 11 as an engineer in private industries, will start his new gig as CAO on Nov. 15. He’ll earn $331,871 in salary and benefits and oversee county operations and a staff of 2,800. “Wade is the clear choice to lead us into the future,” said John Peschong, SLO County 1st District Supervisor

by Jayson Mellom

and chair of the board. “Even with our board’s diversity, Mr. Horton’s ability to obtain a 5-0 vote clearly demonstrates the confidence the board has in his leadership.” It wasn’t easy to get that unanimous vote. The supervisors tussled over the CAO position, particularly when it came to hiring an interim CAO in the wake of previous CAO Dan Buckshi’s resignation, according to 2nd and 3rd District Supervisors Bruce Gibson and Adam Hill. The board considered an “outside” candidate for interim CAO who Gibson and Hill opposed, the supervisors wrote in a recent Tribune column, but the hire ultimately fell through. County Counsel Rita Neal declined to release the names of candidates considered for the interim CAO position to New Times, citing closed session confidentiality. Horton takes over the helm as the supervisors continue to spar over issues ranging from cannabis regulation, to groundwater management, to budget priorities. Horton told New Times he’ll be a steady presence amid the political roller coaster. “As public works director, I worked closely with all five supervisors and developed a relationship and trust with all five,” Horton said. “It’s very important to provide unbiased support to the board and each board member. They each have issues that they’re passionate about and want to get accomplished.” Horton said regardless of which policies the board ultimately adopts, it will be his job to carry them out to the best of his abilities. “Once the decisions are made by the majority of the board, my job is to move forward and execute those policies,” he said. One of the first challenges on Horton’s plate will be to patch together an agreement between the seven cities to build a new animal shelter. Paso and Atascadero recently pulled out of the project, but Horton believes the parties can resurrect the agreement with some more communication. “Sitting down [with the cities] is probably a good first start,” Horton said. “There’s no question it’s a better project with collaboration from all seven city partners.” Δ —Peter Johnson

Should PG&E pay SLO County $85 million to offset the closure of the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant? m Yes. We need that money to offset the jobs and revenue SLO County will eventually lose. m Yes, but I think the amount should actually be larger. m No. PG&E ratepayers shouldn’t be expected to foot the bill for this! m I think the county should get some kind of settlement, but $85 million is too much.

Jockeying for position Local candidates launch election campaigns for 2018

W

hile the 2018 elections are still a year away, hopeful political candidates on the Central Coast are already kicking off their campaigns for elected offices ranging from Congress to county supervisor. As of press time, those in the mix included both familiar faces and newcomers, while some incumbents in key races are still awaiting challengers. Freshman Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-Santa Barbara) is vying to protect his 24th Congressional District seat for the first time, and has $1.3 million in campaign funds in tow. Carbajal could—once again—have to take on Justin Fareed, a 29-year-old Republican rancher and businessman, who recently announced another run for Congress, his third crack at it since 2014. In 2016, Carbajal and Fareed squared off in a well-funded, contentious race, with Carbajal claiming a 7 percent victory. Michael Erin Woody, a Republican from Morro Bay, has also joined the Congressional race. According to Rosemary Canfield, chair of the SLO County Democratic Central Committee, re-electing Carbajal will be a top priority for the local party. Canfield praised Carbajal for managing to be productive and represent the progressive interests of the Central Coast in a Republican-controlled Washington. “That is not easy to do right now,” Canfield said. “He’s been very actively defending our coastline and has had his eye on things like the Carrizo Plain and our open spaces.” Randall Jordan, chair of the Republican Party of SLO County, did not respond to an email request for comment. For the state and local races, hopeful candidates can’t officially file candidacy petitions with the County Clerk’s Office until mid-December. Nevertheless, incumbents and challengers are already gearing up for their campaigns.

PASEO C O L L E C T I O N

The 4th District supervisor race, covering South County, is already heating up. Incumbent Republican Lynn Compton, owner of an agricultural farm supply business in Santa Maria, announced her re-election campaign with nearly $200,000 on hand, while a challenger, attorney Jimmy Paulding of Arroyo Grande, has also entered the race. Paulding, a 31-year-old AG native, told New Times he’s fed up with the division on the Board of Supervisors and what he described as a “focus on political agendas.” “We want our local elected officials to focus on issues,” Paulding said. “The fact that this is a non-partisan race matters. … I want to stand up as someone young, with a new fresh perspective, to hopefully bring unity to the board and represent the interests of the community. We deserve better.” In the other open county supervisor race for the 2nd District seat, which covers the North Coast from Los Osos to the Monterey County line, incumbent Bruce Gibson has announced his candidacy for a fourth term. A challenger has yet to emerge to take on Gibson, a progressiveminded Democrat. Sandy Tannler, the 2nd District representative for the Republican Party of SLO County, thinks that has to do with Gibson’s long tenure as a supervisor and the political makeup of the district. When Tannler organized two neighborhood gatherings in Cayucos and Morro Bay to try and recruit potential supervisor candidates, three people expressed interest, but, so far, none have taken additional steps toward a campaign. “It’s really hard,” Tannler told New Times. “With an incumbent, it’s always difficult to challenge them. Bruce [Gibson] has been our supervisor for so many years and people get used to that. You have to find someone who has that fire.” Tannler said she’s observed the 2nd District move increasingly left, making it even more difficult to find conservativeminded candidates. “It used be like 50-50 [Republicans and Democrats],” she said. “The dynamics have really changed in the last eight years.” According to campaign finance data,

A re-election campaign committee is active for freshman state Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, who represents SLO in the 35th District. He could face a challenger, Alexis Lopez of Grover Beach, who also has a committee indicating a run. The SLO County supervisor races are expected to draw a great deal of local attention and rancor, with two of five seats up for grabs on a Board of Supervisors that’s bitterly split along partisan and ideological lines.

other key county races in 2018 that are lacking candidates besides the incumbents include sherriff-coroner, district attorney, assessor, auditorcontroller, clerk-recorder, and county superintendent of schools. The period to officially submit candidacy petitions begins Dec. 14 and runs to Feb. 7, 2018. ∆ Staff Writer Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Old New Deal

‘Living New Deal’ project explores legacy of FDR’s program across the nation, including SLO County

I

f you aren’t looking, you just might miss it. Walking down Chorro Street in San Luis Obispo through an ordinary-looking residential neighborhood between Islay and Leff, you will pass a low wall of old stacked stones spanning a small creek. It is just 14 feet long and 32 inches high. If you’re walking too fast or are busy on your phone, you’ll also likely walk right by the small plaque embedded in those stones. Read the plaque, and you’d learn that the little bridge on Chorro Street is a relic of America’s recent history, a monument of sorts to one of the country’s most sweeping and ambitious infrastructure and job programs, designed to raise the nation and its citizens out of the Great Depression and jump-start the languishing economy. It was called the New Deal. Spanning the decade between 1933 and 1943, the New Deal was conceived by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and put into action by a series of executive orders and laws passed by Congress, creating a bundle of federal agencies and programs aimed at lifting millions of Americans out of the poverty and joblessness that had gripped the country during the Great Depression. The plan included a massive program of public works and infrastructure projects. Under Roosevelt’s New Deal, the nowdefunct Works Progress Administration (WPA) built 651,000 miles of highway and 124,000 bridges, and built, rebuilt, or expanded 125,000 public buildings in towns and cities from coast to coast. According to data from the Living New Deal, a nonprofit research project curated through the Department of Geography at UC Berkeley, SLO County is home to at least eight New Deal infrastructure projects, including the Chorro Street Bridge, which was built between 1939 and 1940 by the WPA. According to The Living New Deal’s website, the bridge was part of a larger public works project that included resurfacing eight blocks of Chorro between Pacific and High streets. “While Chorro Street has been resurfaced many times since 1940, the sturdy rock culvert and its headwall remain evidence of the WPA’s earlier work,” the website stated. While the bridge is a small link to the New Deal’s legacy in SLO, another, larger project, is still on display in downtown SLO. The art deco-style building on Monterey Street now known as the SLO County Courthouse annex was once the county’s courthouse. According to crowdsourcing history website thecelio.com, the WPA built the courthouse in 1940 after its previous incarnation had been demolished. To the south, the city of Arroyo Grande was home to a successful soil conservation project funded under the auspices of the New Deal. According to a 2010 article by The Tribune, the federal government sent crews from the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the WPA to work with AG farmers to halt soil erosion on their farmland between 1934 and 1937. In Morro Bay, a group of World War I veterans employed by the CCC began construction on several projects in what is now Morro Bay State Park. Beginning

in May of 1934, the group built the park’s entrance road and entrance station, as well as a custodian’s lodge, according to historian author Joseph H. Engbeck, who wrote about the project in his book on the CCC, By the People, For the People. The CCC also built an access road at Morro Strand State Beach, according to The Living New Deal’s website. Further north, the WPA was responsible for making several improvements to the Cayucos Morro Bay Cemetery in 1940. The work included the construction of a 335-foot-long stone wall, as well as a wrought iron gate and a sprinkler system. According to what was detailed in the San Luis Obispo County Telegram-Tribune at the time, the project had to be temporarily put on hold due to muddy conditions. While many New Deal projects like the ones in SLO County may seem like forgotten relics of the past, those at The Living New Deal believe that they continue to be relevant, particularly in light of the country’s recent economic struggles. “We’ve been brainwashed over the past few decades to believe that the government can’t do anything right,” Gray Brechin, a geography professor and founder of The Living New Deal, told New Times. “It’s important to remind people about a time when the government worked for everyone, not just those people who can afford to buy it.” Brechin likened the thousands of New Deal projects around the nation to artifacts of a “lost civilization,” and noted that many of them, like the old SLO County courthouse, are still used by Americans today. “We need to be more aware of how much we rely on the New Deal today,” he said. “Those projects are indispensible to us.” As the project to preserve Roosevelt’s New Deal legacy continues, President Donald Trump is laying out his own ambitious plans to rebuild the country’s aging infrastructure. In June, Trump rolled out some details on how he plans to make good on campaign promises to foster $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over the next 10 years. The White House’s current vision for the program calls for $200 billion in infrastructure funding, including $25 billion for rural infrastructure projects and an eight-year reduction in permit processing time. Unlike Roosevelt’s New Deal, the Trump administration appears to be looking to the private sector to build the projects. “The president’s plan will make America dominant by unleashing private sector capital and expertise to rebuild our cities and states,” a statement from the White House read. A bill for such a program has yet to be introduced or approved by Congress. If that does happen, Brechin is skeptical that it could have the economic impact or historical legacy of Roosevelt’s New Deal. “If there is any public works program, it will simply be a hog trough for [Trump’s] associates to feed at,” he said. ∆ Staff writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

The

economy Tracking the money in and around nonprofit arts in SLO County BY RYAH COOLEY

lthough $27 million is nothing to sneeze at, Arts Obispo Executive Director Angela Tahti thinks it’s looking a little small. That number ($27,722,589 to be exact) accounts for the money that nonprofit arts organizations and their audiences put into the economy in San Luis Obispo County, according to the most recent Arts and Economic Prosperity 5 Survey released by Americans for the Arts in June. The survey looked at 28 local nonprofit arts groups and even more audiences, marking the first time SLO County has ever formally quantified the economic impact of the arts.

“I wasn’t surprised,” said Tahti, whose organization was one of the driving forces behind the survey. “The numbers seem in line, and they can only go up.” The survey specifically tracked nonprofit arts groups that hold live events the public can attend—think the musical Bye Bye Birdie at San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre, Art after Dark at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, or The Nutcracker ballet at the Cal Poly Performing Arts Center. The survey looked at these groups’ 2015 fiscal data and asked audiences at events in 2016 questions like, “Did you go to dinner before the show?” or, “Did you have to pay for a babysitter tonight to be here?” Tahti said the perception many have of

the arts is that it takes in local dollars, but doesn’t necessarily give anything back. “I think the survey can help dispel that notion that we must choose between human services and the arts,” Tahti said. “The arts both increase quality of life and economic vitality.”

Let’s talk money So how do you get to $27 million spent on, by, and around the arts? And why bother tracking it at all? “We’ve been trying for three years to create a survey so we can understand our impact on the community,” Tahti said. “It was time.” Before coming to SLO to serve as executive director for Arts Obispo PHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM

MODEL MUSEUM In January, the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art launched its capital campaign to raise funds for a new $15 million building. In September, the museum secured a $400,000 donation from the county, after submitting the results from the recent Arts and Economic Prosperity 5 Survey.

10 • New Times • November 9 – November 16, 2017 • www.newtimesslo.com

about two years ago, Tahti worked with Americans for the Arts twice to produce surveys for Placer County while working in the nonprofit arts sector there. “The arts are more than just nice, they’re necessary,” said Randy Cohen, vice president of research and policy for Americans for the Arts. “The arts aren’t some black hole.” His organization produces a survey every five years that has tracked nonprofit arts groups across the country since 1994. The most recent survey followed 341 regions, including SLO County, where arts groups and audiences together supported 916 full-time equivalent positions and generated about $1 million each for local and state government. On average, SLO County arts audiences spend $14 million a year when they go to an event, excluding the cost of admission. For county residents, that’s an average of $23.37 per person and event for things like meals and refreshments, souvenirs, transportation, and lodging. Meanwhile, their out-of-town counterparts spent an average of $67.48 per event. Keep in mind that while data from 28 groups was included in the survey, Arts Obispo found that 61 total were eligible to participate, but didn’t for one reason or another—meaning, the numbers could be much higher. Especially, since Hearst Castle was one of the nonprofits that didn’t participate. “Hearst Castle is our Disneyland,” Tahti said. “Thousands of people go there monthly.” Bettina Swigger, executive director for Festival Mozaic, worked on the task force for the survey and said she thinks the numbers could have doubled if Hearst Castle submitted data. In her former life, working in nonprofit arts in Colorado, Swigger saw numbers in the Arts and Economic Prosperity Survey double for Colorado Springs from 2006 to present. She thinks the same could happen for SLO. “It’s like planting the seed,” Swigger said. “And we’re going to see what grows.”

Investing in the arts

Just to the south, in Santa Barbara County, the arts and their audiences spent a whopping $198 million during the survey period. While our neighbor has a much larger population (444,769 people to SLO County’s 281,401), Tahti thinks there’s another reason for such a big difference: public investment in the arts. In the 2015-16 fiscal year, SLO County gave $21,000 to Arts Obispo. While SLO city also gives to the arts, it’s primarily through public art projects, which in the 2015-16 year totaled $116,394 (think all those creatively painted utility boxes around town), or by leasing buildings to organizations like the SLO Repertory Theatre or the SLO Museum of Art for the low, low price of $1 a year. SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon thinks other creative solutions should be on the table for local governments investing in the arts. In a recent trip to Denver and Boulder, Harmon became aware that both cities have programs where part of their sales tax goes to arts and sciences. That funding helps enable the government to consistently invest in the arts, while also keeping its own budgets in check. “I thought it was a positive way for the community to really invest in those two things,” Harmon said. “You can see that has a huge impact on the amount of support that all the arts get to enjoy. It’s a really positive economic circle they’ve created there.” In Santa Barbara County, the numbers for government investment in the arts are also higher than in SLO, but that’s in part because the government has a more active hand in the arts.


SHOW TIME The San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre opened its first season as a professional theater with The All Night Strut in August and is looking to officially launch a capital campaign for a new $5 million to $10 million building in the near future.

Sarah York Rubin is the executive director for the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture, which was founded more than 30 years ago to create support for local arts and culture institutions, programs, initiatives, and projects. Rubin told New Times that the county gives $165,000 a year in staff support for the arts, and the city of Santa Barbara partners to match that investment for arts and culture salaries and benefits. The county also has a Percent for the Arts program, where 1 percent of the funds for capital building projects is invested in the arts. It only works out to a few thousand dollars a year on average, but it’s still something. The city of Santa Maria is currently enmeshed in a contentious process of figuring out if and when it will establish a similar program to fund public art. Before working for the county, Rubin worked in the nonprofit arts sector in Pennsylvania. “There are pros and cons in terms of what the office is able to achieve,” Rubin said. “But ultimately it’s the ideal because you want local government to be invested in the arts.” And it seems like an investment that’s paying off. Last year, the National Endowment for the Arts ranked Santa Barbara ninth out of 367 metropolitan cities for having more working artists per capita than the national average. That could be in part due to Rubin and her colleagues, who host workshops and one-on-one sessions with artists, teaching them how to turn their work into a business. But just like in SLO County, Rubin thinks that Santa Barbara County’s numbers are looking a little low since they also only had about half of their eligible organizations participating in the survey. While Rubin concedes that $198 million isn’t bad at all, she’s concerned that out of context, it could give people the wrong idea. “I worry that people will see it and not know it’s likely double that,” Rubin said. “People often perceive the arts to be some kind of drain on the economy. It’s obviously worth their while to do this. Arts are not only not a drain on the economy, but also an incredible boon.”

Incalculable

In September, Karen Kile, executive director for the SLO Museum of Art went to the SLO County Board of Supervisors with a big ask. She wanted $400,000 for the museum’s proposed $15 million new building that they hope to break ground on in a few years. Naturally, Kile submitted the results from the Americans for the Arts survey when making her case to the board. And the board unanimously voted to give the museum the money. Anyone who’s sat in on a board meeting or two knows that getting all five of its members in agreement is something of a rarity. Kile knows that numbers can convince people that the arts are worth investing

in—that’s partly why the museum participated in the survey—but she also doesn’t think the arts were any less valid before the survey results came out. “This study is good, but it’s emphasizing the what,” Kile said. “It’s almost like it’s justifying the arts. It might almost be taking a defensive mode of, ‘We’re so valuable to the economy.’ We know we’re valuable to our culture, but that’s intangible.” On a crisp October day as Kile opened up the museum to let New Times in, a little girl and her grandma walked toward the entrance for an art class. Kile stopped to hold the door open, but the child shook her head no, saying that she always used the other door to go to art class. Kile pointed to moments like that

and what art class means to that child as she grappled with the incalculable benefits of the arts. “I’d like there to be some thoughtful discussion not of the what, but the why and that why is very hard to describe,” Kile said. “It’s actually something different to everyone.” While the numbers from the survey might have helped to persuade the board to support the new museum building, Kile said the first words out of 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill’s mouth were, “I grew up going to museums.” Hill was raised in New Jersey, and his mom often took him to places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. At Cal Poly, he studied art and literature. “We had an opportunity to enjoy some of the great art of mankind,” Hill said. “No one could think that making such a gift to the museum is frivolous. The arts help to sustain the economy in a way that people sometimes overlook.” While SLOMA officially launched its capital campaign in January, another nonprofit is also looking to fundraise for a new building. The SLO Repertory Theatre (formerly SLO Little Theatre) has yet to formerly launch its $5 million to $10 million capital campaign, but when it does, Patty Thayer, communications director for the theater, said she knows the numbers from the Arts and Economic Prosperity 5 Survey will come in handy when talking to prospective donors. The idea of an even bigger arts scene in SLO excited Kile. After all, she knows there’s enough money here to support all of the arts. “There’s always room for even more,” Kile said. “I think this museum belongs on a street full of galleries. The more creative outlets we have, the better; the ship rises faster.” Δ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley hopes you enjoyed reading this free article (cough, cough). Send comments to rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

Strokes&Plugs

BY KAREN GARCIA

Talking it out J ennifer Steele lost her older brother to suicide in 1993. At the time, Robbie Steele was engaged and had just set a date for his wedding. “In suicide prevention the signs are always talked about and even now I can’t really see signs. It was really a surprise for everybody,” Steele said. She made the effort to seek help about the loss of her brother. She started with the college counselor and has sought counseling here and there ever since. But having a safe environment to talk about Robbie was exactly what Steele needed to process what happened. Her parents didn’t want to seek help or even talk about what happened. “It was a different generation, and at the time there was so much stigma to it. With suicide, there’s grief and then there’s the aspect of, ‘What could I have done differently,’” she said. Steele said that because her parents decided against seeking help, she watched the grief tear them apart. Her mother became an alcoholic and died at 62 years old. Later in life, her father had his own thoughts of suicide. Steele has seen what comes of both getting counseling and not getting it after losing a loved one. A few years ago, she started working with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,

which works with local organizations to host the International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. This event brings together suicide loss survivors so they can find comfort and understanding with discussions and story sharing. This year, Jennifer is working with Hospice of SLO County to host the event. “At an event like this I like seeing people get help early and reach out to others. It’s really good to have a place where people know they’re not alone,” she said. There will be a screening of the film The Journey: A Story of Healing and Hope at the event. It was provided by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is about people who are dealing with suicide loss. There will be a group discussion and an art therapist in the afternoon. The art portion is Steele’s favorite part because it’s a relaxed portion of the day where people create a memory box. The small box is decorated with photos of the loved one. It’s a chance to talk about the memory of the photo and what they loved about that person. Steele said she likes to attend these events because it’s a chance for her to talk about Robbie. She said that she didn’t keep her brother’s death a secret, but it wasn’t something she really talked about

because it didn’t come up. “Now I really like just saying his name and telling stories about him; the things he did to make me laugh,” she said. One of her favorite stories to share is about Robbie’s love of fishing. There were a lot of ponds in the neighborhood they grew up in, and one day she headed out to one of the ponds to fish with him. “There was a great blue heron standing next to him and he was hand feeding it a fish,” she said. Whenever Steele sees a blue heron, she believes it’s her brother and it’s a chance for her to say hi and think about the loving person he was. The International Survivors of Suicide takes place Nov. 18 at 10:30 a.m. All are encouraged to attend but participation isn’t necessary, Steele said it’s great if people come and just sit in the back to take it all in. For more information about the event or the counseling services that Hospice of SLO County provides, visit hospiceslo.org or call 544-2266.

Opinion Protect our public land I want to thank U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal and Sen. Kamala Harris for working with a diverse coalition of business and community leaders to provide additional protections to Carrizo Plain National Monument, which will ensure clean water for communities, protect valuable wildlife habitat, and stimulate a vibrant local economy. The Carrizo Plain National Monument is a place that is home to an incredible diversity of plant and animal life; that safeguards culturally significant Native American sites; offers world-class recreation including horseback riding, cycling, and camping, and that has helped support economic and job growth in the community. The Central Coast Heritage Protection Act would create new Wilderness additions within the national monument. Thanks to Carbajal and Harris’ approach to crafting this bill, more than 500 individuals and businesses from around the region have voiced their support for permanent protection of these special places. These include elected officials, business owners, OHV users, mountain bikers, veterans, faith leaders, anglers, conservationists, and many others. On behalf of the Conservation Lands Foundation, I would like to thank Carbajal and Harris for their advocacy on behalf of our natural areas. At the same time, our members of Congress are working to protect the environment and the economy, the recently leaked report about national monuments makes clear the administration and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke are preparing for an unprecedented attack on protected public lands.

HODIN

Even though Carrizo Plain wasn’t attacked by name in the draft report, the glaring omission of six California national monuments from the document should do the opposite of make us feel safe. We cannot assume Carrizo Plain or any national monument is off the chopping block. Safeguarding our national monuments is vital to our region’s economic future and quality of life. We should be protecting, not attacking, our public lands that protect our heritage. Elayne Stefanick California program director Conservation Lands Foundation

The capitalist caste system

Many of us were born into an economic system that is so beyond our reach, it isn’t even funny. If you are born into poverty you may end up in poverty. Not always but statistics bear this out. I was born into a working middle-class family. That kind of modest middle-class is gone. If it were not for the inclusion of my Social Security, I would be in a shelter. I work at 66, am a newly divorced breast cancer survivor and mother of two successful kids. This runaway economy wants to leave me behind. So far, I am one step ahead. Gary Wechter (“The affordable housing myth,” Nov. 2) and those who hold his views would be wise to read “The Necessity of Poverty” by British writer John Bird. Bird points out how capitalism needs low-paying employees in order to survive. It is our culture’s version of an Indian caste system, but we pretend we can just get out of poverty by clapping our hands and believing in fairies. Poverty is built into our system.

Russell Hodin

14 • New Times • November 9 – November 16, 2017 • www.newtimesslo.com

Poverty and homelessness are problems, but I’m guessing they aren’t for Wechter. We need fewer bullies at the pulpit of reality and a paradigm shift into a positive attitude and caring demonstration for these less fortunate who have every right to reside in our high-end communities.

Support incentives for home ownership

There’s a reason home ownership is still considered the “American dream.” A home is a place to create memories, a means for building wealth, and a pathway to strength and stability in the communities we all call home. Here in San Luis Obispo County, things are no different, and that’s something for lawmakers to remember as Congress embarks on an effort for comprehensive tax reform. Middle-class families have built wealth for centuries through home ownership and real estate investment. Home ownership allows families to protect themselves against rising rents and inflation, while offering an opportunity to build equity over time. Let’s face it: Most families can’t get a loan to purchase stocks or invest in a mutual fund, but they can get a safe mortgage product at competitive rates to invest in a home. It’s a tremendous mechanism for building wealth that shouldn’t be taken away. Best of all, homeowners aren’t the only ones who benefit. For every two homes sold, a job is created. In all, home sales support an average of more than 2.5 million privatesector jobs every year. At almost $3 trillion, real estate accounts for more than 16 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product

➤ Street talk [16] ➤ Rhetoric & Reason [18] ➤ Shredder [19]

Letters (GDP). At the state level it accounts for more than 20 percent of the GDP. That’s a big part of why, for over a century, the American tax code has incentivized homeowners. The country’s leaders acknowledge that a strong, stable housing market is good for everyone, which is why it deserves support. Important tax incentives such as the mortgage interest deduction and the state and local tax deduction are a part of the tax code to ensure all creditworthy families have a fighting chance at the American dream. If those incentives went away, home buyers would see their dream pushed further out of reach, while current homeowners would have the welcome mat pulled right out from under them. Comprehensive tax reform is a worthy goal, and lawmakers should be applauded for their ambitious approach. As Congress continues working through this process, however, the incentives that put homeownership within reach for millions of Americans deserve full support from both sides of the aisle.

people ride on them! I’m not against public transportation; it’s a service that is important to many in our county. What I question is why we have these $300,000 vehicles with very expensive drivers transporting one or two people around. Why don’t we use something like Ride On. It would be more convenient for the user; they wouldn’t have to walk to the bus stop and then walk from another bus stop to their destination. Yes, Ride On will pick them up and drop them at a specific location. I realize the county will have to subsidize a service like this, but it will be less than what we are currently paying and provide better service to the users. Richard Henwood Arroyo Grande

Dear fellow citizens of SLO County

Please, please, please enlighten me as to how our health care system is better with our new administration. I am a middle-class retiree who makes too much to qualify for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and too little to afford the astronomical rates I have to pay to avoid annual tax penalties. Blue Cross just dropped me because “they no longer serve SLO County.” But my broker says that Blue Shield will pick me up for $112 more per month. (Aren’t they the same company?) That will require me to pay $789 per month. And that is with a $5,000 deductible! This amount siphons one-fifth of my annual income! I still have to juggle food, housing, car, car insurance, home/life insurance, and the list goes on. How can one live?

How do you feel about the cities of Paso Robles and Atascadero building their own animal shelter? 33% It’s great. The county’s project was the Taj Mahal of animal shelters! 30% Bad move. They screwed over the county and other cities, and there’s no guarantee it will cost them less or provide quality service. 27% I don’t care, as long as we have a safe clean place for stray animals. 10% Both options are too expensive. I’d rather see that money used to build more homeless shelters. 35 Votes

These fees would get me the “Minimum Essential Coverage” to prevent me from paying the $1,875 fine for not having insurance—or I could get incarcerated to avoid having to pay the fine. All the options lead me to the same depressed feeling of hopelessness and downright outrage for how we got to this stage in our universal health “care.” We can apply for an exemption to this fine, which will likely be denied. Both political parties have failed us when it comes to health care. BOTH. So California … what can we do about it? I’m all ears! D. Albright Atascadero

Hatred from the left

I must admit I had to read the opinions from each of these writers at least twice, but still couldn’t discern what they were

Street talk Should Cal Poly get rid of some of its farmland? Torin Holt Cuesta student “I don’t think it’s a good idea. The farmland is a part of sustainability, and I understand the school is admitting more students but it doesn’t mean they should reduce that land.”

Kevin Scofield Cuesta student “Cal Poly has an image that especially focuses on agriculture. To take that away would start changing the way people view the university.”

Haley Hughes receptionist “I think they’re trying to be like other universities and expand, but that loses the unique size Cal Poly currently has.”

Laura Maxwell project manager “The land is a big draw for the university for students that specifically go to Cal Poly for agriculture. I buy things that are grown at Cal Poly specifically because it’s local.”

Letters trying to say in so many words. Kathy Riedmann (“With all due respect,” Oct. 19) affirmed that she condones and supports Antifa’s fascist tactics to block the free speech of others that they do not agree with. Robert Cuddy (“Inglorious past,” Oct. 19) is baffling, but wants to rewrite our country’s history, which he doesn’t like. He doesn’t like our country, and also wants to ban free speech that does not agree with his point of view. Both of these writers are very disturbing in their hate speech. They embrace others who want to block free speech. Even when they use violence. Very disturbing! It is a look into the minds of disturbing people who are basically haters. Either one is a good example of what is wrong with liberal ideology, which has failed time and time again, so they must block speech that points this out, and must distract their readers with misinformation. We all can see clearly that you hate our current president, you apparently hate our country, and you apparently hate anyone who has a different point of view than yourselves. Each of you could have stated this in a couple short sentences. Hoping our country has problems or our current president fails show you really don’t care about people, just your worn out ideology. Keep up the good work of shining a light on this hatred from the left. Wayne Lockwood Paso Robles

Careful, or everyone will be labeled a ‘lefty’

“Wake up, lefties!” So begins Gary Wechter’s Nov. 2 op-ed, “The affordable housing myth.” No matter what merit his op-ed has, his derogatory exclamation poisons his whole argument and negates any civility. With that beginning phrase, Mr. Wechter sets an acrid tone of derision for his neighbors that he labels as lefties. He states, “We know that most residents in SLO city are lefties.” Really? I’m old enough to remember the nightmare of McCarthyism when the term “lefty” was stamped on anyone with progressive views and strongly intimated that he or she was a Communist or at least a communist sympathizer-aka “pinko.” Mr. Wechter now broadens his lefty labeling to include anyone who wants to preserve to beauty of the Central Coast and the quality of their lives. The hardworking, mostly middle-class folks that he labels as lefties, consist of a broad spectrum of political and social views— conservative to liberal and even some Trump supporters. Mr. Wechter wants to give developers free reign to turn the Central Coast into another Los Angeles to San Diego conurbation of nightmare traffic, a myriad of pollution and the destruction of natural beauty. Charles Ewing Bradley

Affordable housing is not a partisan issue

I’d like to know what Gary Wechter (“The affordable housing myth,” Nov. 2) suggests for the “lefties” who work as police and firemen in SLO and where they should live? My husband works full time (often 75-plus hours per week) and still does not earn enough to afford to rent or buy a house in the area. I

also work full time in my own business. We have one child and expect another soon. From his words, it seems like Mr. Wechter thinks “lefties” are lazy and choosing not to earn enough to live here. Please ask him what his suggestion is; I’d really like to know as we are looking for an affordable home for my firefighter husband to continue to serve our county. Mr. Wechter seems to have all the answers. Mr. Wechter seems to not be considering the people who earn standard income for providing basic safety to him. He seems to be grouping everyone who wants to be able to afford a place to live into the term “lefties.” My request: Please stop using adjectives to describe people when we are talking about something as serious as finding affordable housing. Regardless of what party you belong to, affordable housing is a serious issue. My suggestion: Let’s teach people how to use their skills to start their own businesses so we can have more commerce in the city. Veronica Dailey San Luis Obispo

We need to restore the foredunes in Oceano

The Oct. 26 article on the APCD notice of violation (“County APCD, state parks headed to hearing over dust control violations”) failed to mention an important part of the Special Master report. On pages 4 and 5, Dr. W.G. Nickling wrote: “More ‘natural’ types of solutions are preferable to engineered solutions (e.g. fences and straw bales) given the areal extent of the problem. Engineered solutions are often unattractive and not in keeping with the Parks vision for maintaining the quality of the park experience. Natural solutions might include severely restricting rider activity, reducing the areal extent of rider activity, especially near the top of the tidal zone to allow the re-establishment of the foredunes that were formerly present at the site. Inoculation or fertilizing of sediment to foster biological crust development might also be considered as part of this suite of approaches. In my opinion, the most effective approach would be to extend the amount of vegetation cover at the site.” The APCD executive director and the public have been asking for the foredunes to be restored and to increase vegetation cover for the past six or seven years. The dunes self-restore very quickly when they are left undisturbed. This is proven every year when the snowy plover nesting area is protected by fencing from March 1 to Oct. 1. That area has very low dust emissions. Perhaps you should ask Matt Fuzie if he agrees with that part of the report too. Rachelle Toti Arroyo Grande

ince August, Americans have suffered under the blows of multiple hurricanes and a firestorm that left uncounted homeless, and now a third mass murder in as many months. Natural disasters are traumatic enough, but most people understand that they are not malevolent events, however tragic they can be on an individual basis. We reach out to our fellow citizens with helping hands and assist them in restoring their lives. When evil manifests itself in violence, our ability to understand a root cause is frustrated by first, a lack of accurate information and second, the realization that the victims were totally innocent and simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. The question of “why?” is all too often left unanswered or given an inadequate explanation. Twenty-two years ago I was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, and lived in Killeen, Texas. Our family frequented a local restaurant called Luby’s and we knew more than a few of the employees who served their customers in a cafeteria style setting. We normally sat at a particular

lunchtime for his murder spree. This year we’ve witnessed multiple mass murder attacks on innocents with little explanation for the most deadly attack that occurred in Las Vegas. In this case, the killer obtained his arsenal legally, using legal loopholes to modify his weapon to dramatically increase the rate of fire. A month after the event we know less about his motives than we likely know about the Sutherland Springs, Texas, killer the day after his Nov. 5 massacre. The Vegas shooter also didn’t fit any of the most clearly identified profiles of mass murderers; revenge against the casinos is emerging as a possible motive. A few weeks after the Las Vegas massacre a terrorist carried out a murderous rampage in New York City in the name of his god, killing eight and injuring many more. Coping with this type of attack is easier to mentally process as part of an ongoing conflict but questions always remain, why them and not others? That question is never satisfactorily answered.

When evil manifests itself in violence, our ability to understand a root cause is frustrated by first, a lack of accurate information and second, the realization that the victims were totally innocent and simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. table near the front, convenient for a family of six. In September of 1991 I was transferred overseas. Days after our arrival, I was shocked to learn from news accounts of a massacre that occurred at Luby’s during the lunch hour. The attack had a personal impact as our neighbor and the mother of my son’s best friend was known to regularly frequent Luby’s for lunch with her employer. For some reason that day, they decided to deviate from their routine and ate someplace else. A man drove his pickup truck through the front wall, landing on the table where our family normally sat. He then proceeded to shoot 26 people at random with only a few customers escaping through an emergency exit. One young woman witnessed the killer execute her parents point-blank as she fled outside. Her story was poignant as she previously carried a concealed firearm until told by a friend that she lacked permits for concealed carry and she could be prosecuted if ever confronted by law enforcement. Accordingly, she left her weapon at home. Local police officers attending a conference in a second floor room in an adjacent building heard the gunshots. They responded immediately but had to retrieve their firearms first from their vehicles; the conference had requested they not take their weapons into the meeting room. The event was over within 15 minutes with the murderer killed by police. The man had illegally obtained his weapons, driving from Nevada to Killeen. His motive was never clearly identified nor the reason he selected Luby’s at

The killer of churchgoers on a Sunday morning in a rural, Texas village seems to defy answers, but quite a bit is already known as I write this one day after the event. The man had a violent history with a felony conviction for domestic violence while serving in the Air Force. He was imprisoned for a year and given a bad-conduct discharge from the service. He wasn’t a combat veteran, serving in a logistics specialty at his base in New Mexico. Under current state and federal laws, having been convicted of domestic violence bars him from possessing or owning firearms, but he still managed to purchase them in 2016. How this happened has yet to be determined. As to motive, he was a militant atheist and his Facebook page is alleged to contain numerous anti-religious and antiChristian rants. His connection to the rural church is tenuous with his in-laws reported to be members. This massacre appears to be an extension of ongoing domestic violence. It ended at the church when local civilians used their personal firearms to engage the killer, causing him to flee the scene. I don’t have any words of wisdom as a commentator on these events other than to say that all of us should love those we have at the moment and never fail to hold them tight. ∆ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

The Shredder

Heaven knows they’re miserable now

A

whole bunch of Morrissey fans were happy in the haze of a drunken hour, but heaven knows they’re miserable now. On Nov. 5, the former Smiths frontman, born Stephen Patrick Morrissey, was scheduled to play Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles. The crowd was gathered. The drinks were flowing. The excitement was palpable. “Moz! Moz! Moz! Moz!” About an hour after Morrissey was scheduled to take the stage, someone announced over the PA that it was cold, the stage heaters weren’t working, and Moz was going to reschedule the concert. Um … what? The dude’s from Manchester, England, which isn’t exactly balmy. The 58-year-old isn’t the low-body-fat kid of his youth, so he has some “personal insulation.” He knew he was performing at an outdoor venue in November. What kind of rock star bullshittery is this? It was in the high ’40s and his audience wasn’t sitting under stage lights, yet they were willing to suffer to hear his songs of suffering. Does the gloom rocker not own a freakin’ sweater? Hey, I get it. Rock stars like to work with unbuttoned shirts or no shirts at all, but he’s already there—right there at the venue!— and he has a big crowd gathered to see him, people who drove to get there, people who parked, walked to the amphitheater, bought

some drinks, settled into their $55 to $85 seats, and were waiting for Morrissey to perform. And waiting. And waiting. Social media lit up with disappointment. Expletives flew. One of my favorite postings was from Jen Blatz, who wrote on Twitter, “Fuck that drama queen. Never again. Rot in hell,” and posted a gif that showed her mouthing “fuck you” with the stage in the background while she flipped-off the camera as the videographer “heh-hehed” in the background. I’d be pissed too. Blatz, a designer from Dallas, had travelled from Texas to see Moz. At least one local man, Manuel Barba, a marriage and family therapist with SLO County and part time KCBX DJ, had some mocking fun with the cancelation, starting an online fundraising campaign— gofundme.com/help-buy-morrisseya-sweater—that as of Nov. 8 had only $5 towards its $200 goal. “Are you truly disappointed with Morrissey’s lack of regard?” Barba asked. “Well you’re not alone, because we also hate it when our friends become successful and disregard their fans. If you have ever been duped by this charlatan performer then you know what we feel. Funds raised at this campaign will be in an effort to thwart any attempts by Moz to cancel a show due to low temperatures, by purchasing an organic, cotton, cruelty

free, frankly vulgar, red pullover sweater, shipped to any address we can confirm may actually reach him. I’m so sorry and so very sickened by your lack of wardrobe, Stephen, but don’t panic as this will never happen again on our watch.” The page goes on to say 100 percent of excess proceeds will be donated to Woods Humane Animal Shelter and Cal Poly’s Cat/Feline Rescue. “Let’s channel this negative experience together and do something good for humanity,” Barba continued. “All you get is a sweater this time, Moz, lest we forget the amount of money, time, and resources your fans exhausted to see you [not] perform.” According to Consequence of Sound, which apparently tracks these things, Morrissey has canceled or postponed 123 concerts since 2012. Everyone from NPR to Billboard Magazine covered his Paso cancellation. His tour bus is traveling next to the Hollywood Bowl for a couple of dates. Maybe his ex-fans can collectively mutter the lyrics to his song “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” and it will manifest: “And if a double-decker bus crashes into us, to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die, and if a ten-ton truck kills the both of us, to die by your

side, well the pleasure—the privilege is mine,” and then remind themselves that Morrissey was alone because they’ve abandoned the thin-blooded prima donna. And in other slight “is-this-reallynews?” news, how about that rock painted like a watermelon slice on the Bishop Peak trail? According to SLO City Natural Resource Manager Robert Hill, this is a serious case of vandalism! The watermelon rock must be repaired or removed! If it costs more than $1,000 to do either, it’s felony vandalism! “What are you in for, kid?” “Felony vandalism for painting a rock like a watermelon slice.” “You monster! Don’t be surprised if you find a shiv in you guts.” “Whimper.” Hey, city of SLO, unclench your cheeks a sec, OK? It’s a rock. It’s charming. It’s not like some punk scrawled his squiggly tag on the side of a boulder. Think of it as a grander gesture to a SLO Parks and Recreation Department program that we wrote about earlier this year (“A little pick me up: Rock art project comes to city parks,” March 15). The city was encouraging people to take a rock from one of the city’s 19 parks, bring it home, paint it, and return it for others to find. Yes, the rocks were supposed to be no bigger than your hand, but maybe a person with really big hands painted the watermelon rock. You did this to yourself, SLO! ∆ The Shredder prefers rocks over rock stars. Send ideas and comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

FLOWER POWER Since her mayoral campaign in 2016, SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon has been associated with a red rose that she wears every day, but the trend actually started 20 years ago.

A celebration of words

Partake in the annual San Luis Obispo Poetry Festival now through Nov. 18 at events across the county. On Nov. 12 at Coalesce Bookstore in Morro Bay, the celebrated Glenna Luschei and Michael Hannon will read. Lined up for Nov. 17 at the SLO Library Community Room are Patti Sullivan, SLO County Poet Laureate Emeritus Bonnie Young, SLO County Poet Laureate Jeanie Greensfelder, Glenna Luschei Distinguished Poet awardee Carolyne Wright, and California State Poet Laureate Emeritus Al Young. The festival concludes at Linnaea’s Café on Nov. 18 with featured readings by Amber West, an open reading, and a closing party. Visit languageofthesoul.org for more information

The write thing to do

Can’t shake that bout of writer’s block? Well the SLO Night Writers have just the solution. As part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the group will host a Write-In Day on Nov.11 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the United Church of Christ in SLO. Writers will have access to writing space with outlets for laptops, Wi-Fi, writing prompts, and inspirational speakers. Doughnuts, coffee, tea, and snacks will also be provided. Bring a brown bag lunch so you can write all day. The suggested donation is $5. Visit the Facebook event page A Write-In Day for more information.

Interactive art

When it comes to artist Oliver Herring, the gallery and studio space are one and the same. The Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery is hosting the German-born Herring as an artist in residence from Nov. 13 to Dec. 7. While Herring is here, he will transform the gallery into his studio space and collaborate with students and community members to develop an exhibition that will be on view for the month of December.

email she got recently that simply said, “Lose the rose.” The woman included her full name, so Harmon looked her up and found she was 75 years old and lives in Cayucos. “I think for women in the generation or two above me, they really were not invited to be their full selves,” Harmon said. “And they weren’t really allowed to be in positions of power or politics, and if they were able to ascend in any way, they really had to do it from the masculine. They couldn’t do it with any sense of style or flair or uniqueness, whatever that is for them.” When Harmon ran for mayor of SLO in 2016 she didn’t plan on the rose becoming a political symbol of sorts, it just happened naturally. Her friend designed the pin that now compliments the felt rose in her hair, and then-incumbent Mayor Jan Marx, Harmon’s opponent, called her “flamboyant.” “Women are really judged by how they look, whatever field they’re in, but especially politics,” Harmon said. “People really confuse solemnity for seriousness. I feel confident enough in my knowledge and skill set to do the work I’m doing without having to be this super serious, more masculine type of person.” Δ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley has a soft spot for tulips and sweet peas at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

aseball might be one of America’s most over-used metaphors, whether we’re talking love, life, or just scoring a little action. And never mind that everyone has a different idea of what those bases really mean. Still, fresh on the heels of the Los Angeles Dodgers losing the World Series, I made my way to the San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre’s production of Rounding Third on opening weekend, Nov. 4. The show is the first in SLO Repertory’s (formerly known as the community theater SLO Little Theatre) inaugural season as a professional theater to employ an entire cast and director from outside of the Central Coast area. The East Coast crew is headed up by director Lawrence Lesher. A recent directing credit for Lesher includes Crimes of the Heart at Stagedoor Manor in the Catskills in New York. Locally, he also played Froggy Leseur in The Foreigner at The Great American Melodrama earlier this year. Actors Timothy J. Cox (Talk Radio at the Variations Theatre Group in New York) and Travis Mitchell (recently seen on a national tour of Rock of Ages) star as leads Michael and Don. The trio previously staged playwright Richard Dresser’s (Augusta, The Pursuit of Happiness) two-man show at the Millbrook Playhouse in Pennsylvania. These guys have theater chops, and it shows. When you go to a play that’s essentially two actors talking to each other, you know it’s either going to be really good or really, really bad. Luckily Rounding Third is the former. With a sparse set of a baseball green and benches (with a bar on wheels brought in for one scene), the focus is all on Cox as Michael, the assistant-coach who is a newcomer to baseball and town, and Don, the seasoned veteran little league coach who has many rules for his players

York Dolls, but they brought the music to an intense new energy level. They released their debut album— Young, Loud and Snotty—in 1977, delivering “Sonic Reducer,” which remains a classic anthem of the early punk genre. These guys are legendary and seminal. Original lead singer Stiv Bators—who died in 1990—would sometimes slash his stomach with his mic stand or a broken bottle, inspiring the likes of GG Allin. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of their debut recording, their current lineup—original members Cheetah Chrome and Johnny Blitz with new members Jason “Ginchy” Kottwitz, Ricky Rat, and Jake Hout—released a re-recording of that classic record called Still Snotty: Young, Loud & Snotty at 40! on Nashville-based Plowboy Records.

They followed up their debut with 1978’s We Have Come for Your Children. Also in ’78, Johnny Blitz and some friends got into a fight on Second Avenue in Manhattan, and Blitz ended up stabbed in the chest 17 times. As he was recovering in the hospital, the band held a benefit for him, with John Belushi filling in for Blitz on drums. Yeah, John Belushi! The group split in 1979, reunited for a few gigs in the ’80s, and after Bators’ death (he was hit by a cab in Paris), they pretty much went their separate ways except for two brief reunions in 2004 and ’05. “I’ve had my solo band for the last 10 years,” Chrome explained in press materials, “and Dead Boys songs have always been included in my shows, and over time the right mix of people came together to pull off and at times enhance the Dead Boys sound. With the 40th anniversary of the Dead Boys on the horizon and a solid band that could interpret and deliver the performance and sound needed to maintain the authenticity of the Dead Boys, I reached out to Johnny Blitz about an anniversary tour and he said yes and we began the journey of what would become Still Snotty.” They added Ginchy on guitar, Detroit punk legend Ricky Rat on bass, and vocalist Jake Hout from Dead Boys tribute band the Undead Boys, and viola! “I’ve been singing the Dead Boys songs myself for 20 years because I couldn’t find another singer I trusted enough to hand it to,” Chrome added. “The first gig with Jake, it was like, ‘You got it, man!’ I think Stiv would be very proud of our choice.” Their original debut was basically cut as a demo, but it’s withstood the test of time. Of the re-recording, Chrome said, “It’s not better. It’s just different.” What’s important is the fun they’re having playing together and bringing back the energy of a band punk fans wish they STARKEY continued page 36

It’s still just as loud and snotty; we’re just old now.” The Dead Boys will be coming to Boo Boo Records that same day for an in-store appearance and album signing (they should arrive around 4:30 or 5 p.m.), and according to Camozzi’s Brad Roberts, there’ll be a few rock luminaries in attendance at the club that night. “Guests so far are Jimmy Ashurst from Buckcherry and Izzy Stradlin’s Ju Ju Hounds; Mick Cripps, an LA Guns original; Nigel Moog, lead singer of London Quireboys; and God knows who else is coming up from the Viper Room show with the Boys on their way to the DNA in San Fran!” Roberts gushed. “It’s looking like an all out celeb jam during the course of the night. I’m super excited!” Opening acts include The Brutalists and Love Razors. And a happy birthday to Roberts, without whom this show would not have happened. Rock on, my man!

Renowned blues guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya plays the final show of the Fall Fest this Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Pavilion on the Lake in Atascadero (8

p.m.; all ages; $30 general admission at fallfest.com). The Alligator Records recording artists and former member of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers is touring in support of his newest, Hard Truth, another worthy entry into his forcefully melodic blues oeuvre. You may not recall, but Montoyo’s first love was the drums, and he began his professional career in the mid-’70s as Albert Collins’ drummer. Montoyo learned his guitar style from Collins, and after five years touring with him, Montoya joined Mayall for another 10 years before launching his solo career. He’s wicked fun to watch. The lefty plays a left-handed guitar with righthanded neck with the strings upside down! Hard Truth is his tenth studio album, so he’s got a lot of material to draw from. Don’t miss this ripping guitar player! Back Bay Betty will open the show starting at 6:30 p.m., so come early!

There’re some exciting things happening for local surf and psychedelic rock legend Merrell Fankhauser. For one, his song “Lila” from his classic 1967 album Fapardokly will be included in the new film Chappaquiddick, a biopic about Ted Kennedy (Jason Clarke) and how his career was derailed by the death of campaign strategist Mary Jo Kepechne (Kate Mara) in a fatal car accident. The film has a release date of April 6, 2018, according to IMDB, though according to Fankhauser, the film is “getting a Dec. 8 release date, The Hollywood Reporter revealed, just in time to snag an upcoming award, like an Oscar.” His Fapardokly album is highly sought after on vinyl (check your collection, you could be sitting on a $300 to $500 gold mine) and also includes the song “Supermarket,” which was mentioned in Thomas Pynchon’s novel Inherent Vice, and the song “Tomorrows Girl,” which was included in the Grammy-nominated Rhino Records box set Where the Action Is! L.A. Nuggets 1965-1968. Fankhauser has a cable access TV show that airs on the West Coast and Hawaii, and he recently started hosting a weekly radio show on Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m. on KYXZ 1079.FM in Grover Beach, where he interviews musicians and plays rock and instrumental surf music of the ’50s and ’60s. “My radio show is going very well, locally and online,” Fankhauser said. “The last show had interviews and music STARKEY continued page 37

And speaking of radio stations, Cal Poly’s student-run KCPR 90.1FM recently scored the No. 1 spot on Great Value Colleges’ list of 30 Amazing College Radio Stations of 2017-18. Cal Poly’s station beat out the likes of Georgetown University and UC Berkeley! “Our programming has moved to appeal to a larger demographic on the Cal Poly campus,” journalism senior and General Manager Brian Robbins said in a press release. “We’ve really pushed new music in the last three years, and we’ve gotten a lot more structure as an organization.” And finally, if you missed the New Times Music Awards on Friday, Nov. 3, at the Fremont Theater, here are the results: Best songwriter: 1) The Tipsy Gypsies “Drought”; 2) The Creston Line “1992”; 3) Derek Senn “Monica Lewinsky.” Best rock/alternative: 1) 33RPM “Red Black or White”; 2) The Monroe “Thunder”; 3) 555-Balls “Someone to Blame.” Best country/folk/Americana: 1) The Creston Line “No More Heroes”; 2) Mark Adams “Where’s My Town”; 3) Natalie Haskins “Stand By Me.” Best R&B/blues: 1) The Tipsy

THOR: RAGNAROK

TWO HOT-HEADED FOOLS Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (voiced by Mark Ruffalo) commiserate after their gladiatorial battle and try to work out their differences.

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth, Anna? Full price What’s it worth, Glen? Full price Where’s it showing? Sunset Drive-In, Downtown Centre, Park, Stadium 10, Galaxy

Thunderful! T aika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) directs Chris Hemsworth as Thor, the god of thunder, who loses his hammer, is imprisoned on the other end of the universe, and finds himself pitted against his former ally The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in a gladiatorial battle. Meanwhile, Hela (Cate Blanchett), the goddess of death, is threatening to destroy Thor’s home, Asgard, so he must escape and race against time to protect everything he holds dear. The film also stars Tom Hiddleston as Thor’s estranged brother, Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. (130 min.) Glen Comic book movies are inherently silly and absurd, and nothing kills one quicker than over earnestness and taking itself too seriously. After the rousing success of the R-rated Deadpool and its self-deprecating humor, it seems like these films’ producers have clued in to the idea that comic book films should be fun and funny. The producers of Thor: Ragnarok had the good sense to hire New Zealand director Taika Waititi, who was responsible for the quirky indie gem Eagle vs Shark as well as some episodes of the brilliant TV series Flight of the Conchords. Last year Waititi hit a home run with the poignant, charming, and

At the

hilarious Hunt for the Wilderpeople, but as a director, Waititi was still a risk for taking over a big franchise film. Judging from the way he’s handled this Thor installment, he’ll be back. This film is a riot! Thor may be the god of thunder, but he also has some insecurities, and the heart of the film is about him finding the true source of his power and channeling it. If you’ve seen the theatrical trailer, you’ve already got a taste of the film’s tone. “I don’t hang with The Avengers anymore. It all got too corporate,” Thor laments, perfectly encapsulating how eager this film is to make fun of itself and the entire idea of a comic book franchise. When Thor tries to gather a new team to save Asgard from Hela, Valkyrie asks, “This team of yours, it got a name?” “Yeah,” Thor replies, clearly trying to think up a name on the spot, “it’s called the … uh … Revengers.” Yep, this is a comic book movie I can get behind. Anna I went into this film with some trepidation. After all, it takes some serious skill to keep a comic book franchise film from sinking into mundane silliness and over-acted ludicrous situations. The writers and director of Thor: Ragnarok chose instead to make fun of themselves and the genre entirely, which hit this one out of the park. It was truly entertaining, funny, and action packed. Behind the characters are some serious acting chops as well. With a cast of veteran performers such as Hopkins, Blanchett, and Goldblum, it has a lot

going for it. I also liked that while there is a team up of superheroes, it isn’t the whole crew, which can get overwhelming. Instead, we get more time with some of my favorites, and the back-and-forth banter between both Thor and The Hulk, and Thor and his mischievous, self-serving brother Loki is really funny. Thor is feeling pretty lost and alone after the death of his father and the loss of his hammer at the hands of his older sister Hela (Blanchett), and he has yet to discover that his powers are much more internal than he knows. For a film all about beating the bad guy, this is a fun romp in a world where being the god of thunder proves to be both hassle-filled and hilarious. Glen Thor’s new team is indeed a motley crew. You’ve got a giant green rage monster, a jaded last-of-her-kind Norse warrior, a naïve and somewhat bumbling thunder god, and his homicidal halfbrother who all have to join forces to kill Thor and Loki’s older sister, the goddess of death, who’s bent on destroying their world. I’m not sure there’s any way to play this other than for laughs. Being a big, loud comic book movie, the film naturally has over-the-top special effects, amazing set-pieces, tons of action, and a ripping soundtrack—and all those elements are firing at high speed. When Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” starts playing over a pitched battle, it’s pretty much a

A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS

perfect cinematic moment of high-level campiness. This is a cosmic adventure with a similar feel to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Between Blanchett as Hela and Goldblum as Grandmaster, you’ve got two really entertaining, scenery chewing bad guys. Hemsworth’s Thor has an everyman charm. If you were merely to delineate the plot, this film would sound pretty boring, but as a sustained joke about the preposterousness of the Marvel Universe, it’s amazing! Anna While Valkyrie is initially a “bad guy” who drunkenly captures Thor and sells him to Grandmaster, she begrudgingly joins the good side and helps Thor and The Hulk escape by stealing a ship. When the heroes ask why the Grandmaster would have a ship with no guns on it, Valkyre tells them he used it “for orgies and stuff” to which Thor replies, “Just don’t touch anything.” It’s got that great, campy charm halfway between Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool, and if more comic book movies tend in this direction, I’ll be very happy. Amping up the humor and willingness to poke fun at itself is a smart move for this franchise, and I’m hoping the healthy ticket sales will tell them to keep at it. As someone who went into this film unsure of whether it would manage to entertain, I can wholeheartedly say that it does so in a fun and original way. It’s a lot of fun to see on the big screen as well, and the non3-D version was plenty of fun. Waititi did a great job once again, and if he directs more films in this franchise, I will be sure to catch them. ∆

THE FLORIDA PROJECT What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm Director Sean Baker (Tangerine, Starlet, Prince of Broadway) helms this film co-written with Chris Bergoch that follows the exploits of Moonee (Brooklyn Prince), a precocious 6-year-old who lives with her unemployable mother, Halley (Bria Vinaite), in a low-rent motel located near Disney World. Set over the course of one summer, we watch Moonee and her friends Scooty (Christopher Rivera) and Jancey (Valeria Cotto) run wild around the touristy Florida strip, where they beg people for ice cream money, score free waffles from Scooty’s mom Ashley (Mela Murder), and get themselves in trouble

Pick

with their childish shenanigans. This is slice-of-life cinéma vérité filmmaking—think a colorful candy-coated version of Truffaut’s The 400 Blows— where the plot is secondary to the film’s realism. In fact, the closest the film has to a plot is Halley’s ongoing struggle to make the rent—she buys knock-off designer perfumes and up-sells them to tourists, for instance—and to keep Florida’s Department of Children and Families (DFC) from taking Moonee away. Bobby (Willem Dafoe) oversees the motel, called the Magic Castle, and he spends his days keeping its impoverished residents in line. It may be a low-rent motel, but Bobby takes its upkeep seriously. He also takes responsibility for its residents’ children, watching over them with a fierce protectiveness, even though they make his job much harder. Bobby has

deep sympathy for Moonee and Halley, and though Halley is a hot mess, he knows she cares deeply for her daughter. Aside from Dafoe and Caleb Landry Jones, who plays Bobby’s son, Jack, who sometimes comes and helps at the motel, most of these actors are unknowns or firsttimers. That only adds to the realism, and Baker elicits some amazing performances from them. The film simply feels like a glimpse into real life and depicts childhood with an honesty rarely seen in American cinema. It’s both joyous and heartbreaking. This empathetic examination of American poverty doesn’t depict characters that feel sorry for themselves. Halley is a defiant survivor, and Moonee is too young to know or care that they’re poor. Instead, it humanizes its characters, MOVIES continued page 41

GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? The Palm From director Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) comes a bittersweet glimpse into the relationship between author and playwright A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son, Christopher (Will Tilston), whose stuffed animals inspired the characters of Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories. Along with his mother, Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny, Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher gets swept up in Milne’s international success. As the Pooh stories grow in popularity, Christopher becomes publicly recognizable as “the real Christopher Robin”—a title he quickly resents. As his parents parade him around the country to promote the Pooh books, Christopher begins to feel more like a show pony than a son. At the beginning of the film, we spend some time with Milne and Daphne before Christopher is born. Milne, already a wellknown playwright, is in the middle of an

Pick

existential crisis. His daily life is interrupted by nightmarish flashbacks of trench warfare (Milne served in the British Army during World War I). He feels his literary work thus far has been unsubstantial and aches to write something antiwar, which Daphne (portrayed quite unsympathetically) calls a waste of time (“there will always be war”). The shell shock continues to haunt Milne after Christopher is born, so much so that the sound of a balloon popping provokes an anxiety attack. In one scene, Milne takes a walk with Christopher (age 5) into the woods and they come across a beehive (foreshadowing!). The sound of the bees buzzing makes Milne stop dead in his tracks. “Not here, not here,” he says, as the buzzing morphs into gunfire. But later, Milne takes his son back to the same beehive on purpose. “Where there are bees, there is honey. And where there’s honey, there are bears,” Milne says as he points at Christopher’s teddy bear named Winnie (short for Winnipeg). These woods were the inspiration for the fictional Hundred Acre Wood in Milne’s stories of course. Through writing the Pooh stories, Milne is able to suppress his post-war demons— but at a cost. The more beloved the fictional Christopher Robin becomes, the more alienated the real Christopher feels from his parents and the rest of the world. The biggest reason to see Goodbye Christopher Robin is Tilston’s performance as Christopher, whose chemistry with Gleeson’s Milne feels authentic and nuanced. Although their relationship is the heart of the film, I actually wish we could have seen more of the writing process behind the Pooh stories. I’d love to have seen more instances of what inspired Milne’s characters. Sure, we get scenes with all the major players—Tigger, Piglet, Owl, etc. But what about the heffalumps and woozles?

complicated life and mysterious death. Shot with live actors, the film was then transformed into animation. A team of 115 painters working in Van Gogh’s style painted each of the film’s 65,000 individual frames. The results are a spectacular and mesmerizing achievement! This film is a glory to behold, with paintings coming to life before your eyes. The story—written by the co-directors and Jacek Dehnel—takes place a couple years after Van Gogh’s death. When an undelivered letter is discovered from Vincent Van Gogh to his brother Theo, Vincent’s friend and frequent subject Postman Roulin (Chris O’Dowd) enlists his son Armand (Douglas Booth) to carry the letter to Paris and search for Theo, since the forwarded letter had already been returned “undeliverable.” Armand sets out on the train, and soon his task turns into a mystery story as he tries to find Theo, and barring him, his widow or someone else who should appropriately receive what was perhaps Van Gogh’s last epistle.

The film is certainly not the definitive version or Van Gogh’s death—it raises questions but doesn’t offer certain answers, just more conjecture—but it’s entertaining, poignant, and visually arresting. See this one in the theater! (94 min.) —Glen Starkey

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? Park, Stadium 10 Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Oblivion, the upcoming sequel Top Gun: Maverick) directs this true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, elite firefighters who risk everything to save their community from the raging Yarnell Hill Fire in June 2013. Talk about putting viewers through an emotional ringer! Only the Brave plays more like a war film, where the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood— bonds forged through impossibly difficult and dangerous work—are tested through hardship, the strain of personal lives, and a deep need to succeed. When we first meet the Granite Mountain crew stationed outside Prescott, Arizona, they’re working a fire but designated as second tier firefighters. They stay in the back, dig fire lines, and clean up after the “Hotshots,” firefighters at the highest certification level who are allowed to engage the fire directly. Hotshots are often helicopter into the danger. They’re considered the best of the best. The Granite Mountain crew is headed by Eric Marsh (Josh Brolin), a veteran firefighter who desperately wants his crew to reach Hotshot certification, but they would be the first municipal crew in the nation to receive that elite status, which traditionally goes to state or federal firefighting units. Part of the film’s tension is the crew’s deep commitment to becoming Hotshots, aided in part by Duane Steinbrink (Jeff Bridges), the fire chief pushing to secure the crew an evaluation. There’s also tension between their long and dangerous work hours and their significant others. The film especially delves into Marsh and his horse trainer wife Amanda’s (Jennifer Connelly) relationship; their deeply held personal secrets are slowly revealed. Add in a new member of the Granite

Mountain crew, a druggy burnout named Brendan McDonough (Miles Teller), who recently discovered he fathered a little girl and is looking for redemption, and it’s easy to see why the film is so rife with emotionally explosive moments. Some of the guys on the crew, especially Christopher MacKenzie (Taylor Kitsch), are afraid McDonough will endanger the group. After this setup, the film moves first to their evaluation and then to dramatic peak, as they join the fight against the Yarnell Hill Fire. The film is aided by excellent performances, especially Connelly and Brolin. Both of their characters are survivors who have turned their lives around, and while they both were committed to being childless, as Amanda has gotten older, she wants to revisit that while Eric is still uncertain. It makes for some incendiary moments, and it doesn’t help that Eric’s emotions are often on edge. In fact, the acting all around is terrific, with Teller—who I don’t always like—offering a raw performance as the drug addict who’s finally got something to live for. From what I know of wildfire crews, this film offers a realistic look at the training, the camaraderie, and the firefighting techniques used, and my hat’s off to director Kosinski for amassing a technical team to create some really believable wildfire special effects. There are some amazing moments, such as a helicopter shot of a running elk streaking away from the fire. Considering what’s happened in Northern California, this film is hitting close to home. It takes a certain kind of person to commit their lives to such dangerous work. Whether law enforcement, military, or fire protection, these people are heroes. They’re also real, imperfect people, but as this film shows, you don’t have to be perfect to be brave. (133 min.) —Glen Starkey

Get Out!

BY KAREN GARCIA

Building a connection Spur-of-the-moment plans in LA help grow friendships

A

t 65 miles per hour, my closest friend and I set out on a mini adventure on Highway 101 to Los Angeles to catch a concert on Oct. 17. The concert happened to fall on a Tuesday. Yes, we’re in our mid 20s, but we’re both riddled with responsibilities that include working multiple jobs and volunteer work. So, going on spontaneous adventures isn’t really something we do anymore. But we decided to go anyway, heading down the highway at 4 p.m. trying to avoid what the Central Coast calls rush hour traffic—we’re both originally from Southern California and made it through the 405 alive. We’re on our way to see Tegan and Sara, a Canadian indie pop band that came about in 1998. This was something I wasn’t aware of, but my friend knew all about it. She’s a huge—no—mega fan of the band and knows a lot about their history and past albums. What I do know is that the band consists of lead vocalists Tegan and Sara Quin, twin sisters that are now in their 30s. When we hit Ventura County, the sun has started to sink into the water on our right. By that time we’d already recapped the day and the previous week. She pops in the CD that’s the reason Tegan and Sara are on this special tour, The Con X: Covers. It’s an album that was originally released in 2007, titled The Con when the sisters were dealing with breakups and long distance relationships. So the album is very dark and is said to be a reflection of growing up and the ending of things. This re-release of the album features the original 14-track list reinvented with various artists. As we near the Valley, the song “Nineteen” starts and it’s performed by Haley Williams of Paramore. We talk about these bands and artists that we used to listen to during our angst-filled high school years, before we met and became friends. As we navigate our way to downtown LA, we point out the places we’ve been to and the restaurants we grew up going to as well. Taking out our tickets, I realize that this concert isn’t just the 10th anniversary of The Con but it’s also a way to benefit the band’s foundation. The Tegan and Sara Foundation works

to raise awareness and funds to address economic justice and representation for LGBTQ girls and women. One dollar from every ticket sold would go directly to the foundation and its efforts. Not only are we excited to enjoy the concert, we’re also happy that we’re able to contribute to the foundation. Just minutes away from the concert venue, The Ace Hotel Theatre, we enter the realm of downtown LA. The land of never ending streets, ever changing stoplights, and crowded street corners. I have to admit, although I would never live in the heart of LA, I miss the bustling of people when I go to a concert, museum, restaurant, or brewery. We’ve talked about this at length: We enjoy the Central Coast but there’s something special about

LA. We agree that we don’t know if it’s the mash-up of cultures and creativity or the pace at which people travel to get to their destination—it’s a rush. As we arrive at the Ace Hotel, we have to take a minute to marvel at the building’s beauty. It was originally built in 1927 and was the home of United Artists, a movie production company. Silent film stars Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and Charlie Chaplin founded the company. The building was sold in 2011 and later opened as the Ace Hotel Downtown LA in 2014. This building is unique because its architecture stands true to the era of its founding. It also stands out as many buildings surrounding it have a more modern flair.

As we shovel out $10 for parking—it is LA; parking isn’t free—we gather with the rest of the Tegan and Sara fans. The theater is amazing; a long lobby with checkered flooring and a beautiful chandelier greet us. It’s dimly lit with colored lights that match the old Hollywood feel. Our seats are on the second floor of the venue, but the theater is small enough that we still feel close to the stage. Once we take our seats, we can’t help but laugh at ourselves for driving almost four hours to busy downtown LA to catch a concert. But we were glad we did; we were able to catch up and learn more about each other. We also had to laugh because we both had to work the next morning. That meant once the concert ended at 10 p.m., we would be making our way back to San Luis Obispo. What are your 20s for, right? It’s about building on friendships and enjoying events in great company. Δ Karen Garcia is driving down the 101 at 70 miles per hour at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com. PHOTOS BY KAREN GARCIA

hen you talk about “the little guy,” you’re talking about Michael Huggins. Just remember: His business is small, but his story—and his dreams—are not. An engineer-turned-organic-farmer, Huggins traveled all over the place— Kentucky, Oregon, Oakland, Finland— before settling in SLO. He’s studied physics and water resource engineering and what makes the world tick. Now, he tends an acre at City Farm SLO, where he also keeps his favorite science project humming: A 120-by-35foot greenhouse that he built then packed with certified organic turmeric, ginger, and winter tomato plants. “Working in the greenhouse is all about controlling the environment; in a way, I’m continuing to use my science education,” Huggins said. That doesn’t mean starting his business was a clear-cut experiment. Before Huggins ordered his organic seed rhizomes (first from Hawaii, then from another vendor, because, as he found, you cannot legally import these particular seeds to California from Hawaii); before he started the baby seeds inside and replanted the larger specimens in the greenhouse he built; before he ever began selling the precious knobs to local purveyors like SLO Natural Foods CoOp and New Earth Superfoods some six months later; he had a big problem to fix. Really, he was in deep doo-doo. DELICIOUS DEEDS Popular SLO County company Baba Small Batch Hummus was able to avoid using a costly third party co-packer thanks to local funding secured by nonprofit Slow Money SLO.

Other local producers like Whalebird Kombucha and Mama Ganache Chocolates in SLO have their own Slow Money SLO success stories to tell. You can hear about these stories and nosh on samples from Bliss Cafe, Back Porch Bakery, SLO Natural Foods CoOp, Whalebird Kombucha, Mint + Craft, Lincoln Deli, Doc Burnstein’s, and Niner Estates at a Nov. 14 meeting at the SLO Guild Hall. Huggins is one of 18 business owners whose dreams have been ignited by local support. Now, he has plans to multiply that single greenhouse into several. His crop list will also expand to include peppers. The latest harvest of ginger and turmeric? That will go to local business Julia’s Juices of Arroyo Grande, which— in turn—helps another local business do their thing. In the end, the local funding goes right back into neighborly hands. Which means it’s really not just about money or one person’s success. It’s about connecting and supporting each other to better feed us all. “Compared to using a traditional bank or institution, people are much more flexible, and it’s a rewarding, less stressful experience,” Huggins said. “In the future, I’d like to start my own co-op to give back.” ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain is dreaming big with a small footprint.

H ayley’s P icks Tiki time

I love camp, retro fashion, and I love a well made Mai Tai, so you’d think I’d be a raging fan of tiki bars. To be honest, nope. Sadly, I’d been sorely disappointed by the few I’d experienced, with their dusty interiors and too-sweet syrups. That all changed recently, however, thanks to a friend’s Vegas wedding. After stopping at the very legit Frankie’s Tiki Room—and realizing just how deep the culture goes (more than a dozen drinks with a range of covetable cups, garnishes, and boozes)—I became an instant devotee. So, as you can imagine, I was pretty stoked to hear a little birdie tell me that Sidecar Cocktail Company in SLO has begun its own Tiki Tuesday tradition. No, the hip downtown hangout isn’t turning its moody interior into a vibrant, tropical oasis, but you can bet their capable mixologists are shaking up a host of classic drinks crafted in Sidecar’s own sophisticated style. Yes, there will be special tiki cups too—and yes, you can totally take one home without getting 86ed. These suckers are strong though, so please drink in moderation. Like cologne on an Elvis impersonator, a little bit of tiki goes a long way. Cheers to getting leid on a Tuesday! Sidecar Cocktail Company is located at 1127 Broad St. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain is dusting off her Hawaiian shirt for the winter, and there’s nothing weird about that.

Homework: If you could change your astrological sign, what would you change it to and why? Write: freewillastrology.com. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Adriana Martinez and Octavio Guillen got engaged to be married when they were both 15 years old. But they kept delaying a more complete unification for 67 years. At last, when they were 82, they celebrated their wedding and pledged their vows to each other. Are there comparable situations in your life, Aries? The coming months will be a favorable time to make deeper commitments. At least some of your reasons for harboring ambivalence will become irrelevant. You’ll grow in your ability to thrive on the creative challenges that come from intriguing collaborations and highly focused togetherness.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I had pimples when I was a teenager. They’re gone now, although I still have a few pockmarks on my face as souvenirs. In retrospect, I feel gratitude for them. They ensured that in my early years of dating and seeking romance, I would never be able to attract women solely on the basis of my physical appearance. I was compelled to cultivate a wide variety of masculine wiles. I swear that at least half of my motivation to get smarter and become a good listener came from my desire for love. Do you have comparable stories to tell, Taurus? Now is an excellent time to give thanks for what once may have seemed to be a liability or problem.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The next two weeks will be one of the best times ever to ask provocative, probing questions. In fact, I invite you to be as curious and receptive as you’ve been since you were 4 years old. When you talk with people, express curiosity more often than you make assertions. Be focused on finding out what you’ve been missing, what you’ve been numb to. When you wake up each morning, use a felt-tip marker to draw a question mark on your forearm. To get you in the mood for this fun project, here are sample queries from poet Pablo Neruda’s Book of Questions: “Who ordered me to tear down the doors of my own pride? Did I finally find myself in the place where they lost me? Whom can I ask what I came to make happen in this world? Is it true our desires must be watered with dew? What did the rubies say standing before the juice of the pomegranates?”

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Things to say when in love,” according to Zimbabwe poet Tapiwa Mugabe: “I will put the galaxy in your hair. Your kisses are a mouthful of firewater. I have never seen a more beautiful horizon than when you close your eyes. I have never seen a more beautiful dawn than when you open your eyes.” I hope these words inspire you to improvise further outpourings of adoration. You’re in a phase when expressing your sweet reverence and tender respect for the people you care about will boost you physical health, your emotional wealth, and your spiritual resilience.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you working on solving the right problem? Or are you being distracted by a lesser dilemma, perhaps consumed in dealing with an issue that’s mostly irrelevant to your long-term goals? I honestly don’t know the answers to those questions, but I am quite sure it’s important that you meditate on them. Everything good that can unfold for you in 2018 will require you to focus on what matters most—and not get sidetracked by peripheral issues or vague wishes. Now is an excellent time to set your unshakable intentions. (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Every one of us experiences loneliness. We all go through periods when we feel isolated and misunderstood and unappreciated. That’s the bad news, Virgo. The good news is that the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to make loneliness less of a problem. I urge you to brainstorm and meditate about how to do that. Here are some crazy ideas to get you started. 1. Nurture ongoing connections with the spirits of beloved people who have died. 2. Imagine having conversations with your guardian angel or spirit guide. 3. Make a deal with a “partner

in loneliness”: a person you pray or sing with whenever either of you feels bereft. 4. Write messages to your Future Self or Past Self. 5. Communicate with animals.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The drive for absolute perfection could undermine your ability to create what’s very good and just right. Please don’t make that mistake in the coming weeks. Likewise, refrain from demanding utter purity, pristine precision, or immaculate virtue. To learn the lessons you need to know and launch the trends you can capitalize on in 2018, all that’s necessary is to give your best. You don’t have to hit the bull’s eye with every arrow you shoot—or even any arrow you shoot. Simply hitting the target will be fine in the early going.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Remember the time, all those years ago, when the angels appeared to you on the playground and showed you how and why to kiss the sky? I predict that a comparable visitation will arrive soon. And do you recall the dreamy sequence in adolescence when you first plumbed the sublime mysteries of sex? You’re as ripe as you were then, primed to unlock more of nature’s wild secrets. Maybe at no other time in many years, in fact, have you been in quite so favorable a position to explore paradise right here on earth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As a courtesy to your mental health, I minimize your exposure to meaningless trivia. In fact, I generally try to keep you focused instead on enlightening explorations. But in this horoscope, in accordance with astrological omens, I’m giving you a temporary, short-term license to go slumming. What shenanigans is your ex up to lately, anyway? Would your old friend the bankrupt coke addict like to party with you? Just for laughs, should you revisit the dead-end fantasy that always makes you crazy? There is a good possibility that exposing yourself to bad influences like those I just named could have a tonic effect on you, Sagittarius. You might get so thoroughly disgusted by them that you’ll never again allow them to corrupt your devotion to the righteous groove, to the path with heart.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the coming months it will be crucial to carefully monitor the effects you’re having on the world. Your personal actions will rarely be merely personal; they may have consequences for people you don’t know as well as those you’re close to. The ripples you send out in all directions won’t always look dramatic, but you shouldn’t let that delude you about the influence you’re having. If I had to give 2018 a title with you in mind, it might be “The Year of Maximum Social Impact.” And it all starts soon.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The punk ethic is rebellious. It transgresses conventional wisdom through “a cynical absurdity that’s redeemed by being hilarious.” So says author Brian Doherty. In the hippie approach, on the other hand, the prevailing belief is “love is all you need.” It seeks a “manic togetherness and all-encompassing acceptance that are all sweet and no sour—inspiring but also soft and gelatinous.” Ah, but what happens when punk and hippie merge? Doherty says that each moderates the extreme of the other, yielding a tough-minded lust for life that’s both skeptical and celebratory. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because the punk-plus-hippie blend is a perfect attitude for you to cultivate in the coming weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’m falling in love with the way you have been falling in love with exciting possibilities that you once thought were impossible. Oh, baby. Please go further. Thrilling chills surge through me whenever you get that ravenous glint in your mind’s eye. I can almost hear you thinking, “Maybe those dreams aren’t so impossible, after all. Maybe I can heal myself and change myself enough to pursue them in earnest. Maybe I can learn success strategies that were previously beyond my power to imagine.” ∆
