Former Clearwater Nursery denied cannabis permit amid alleged violations

C

ounty supervisors sent one of San Luis Obispo County’s largest and most controversial cannabis operations packing on April 9. Supervisors voted unanimously to deny CFAM Management a land-use permit at 887 Mesa Road in Nipomo—formerly Clearwater Nursery until cannabis replaced cut flowers in 2015— after a recent inspection found multiple alleged violations of local and state cannabis regulations. County officials said CFAM was found to be illegally subletting its facilities to process cannabis grown outside of SLO County in unpermitted structures, according to a March 13 inspection. Those allegations are set to go before a county cannabis hearing officer on April 16, where fines and/or plant abatement could be levied. Cannabis officials from the state Department of Food and Agriculture—which participated in the March 13 inspection—are also investigating the site for possible state violations. On April 9, county staff told supervisors that it wasn’t the first time CFAM skirted local rules. In 2017, code enforcement found CFAM growing thousands more plants than the maximum allowed per county rules. “It wasn’t one mistake. It was mistake, after mistake, after mistake,” 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton said. Compton, who lives in and represents Nipomo, said the grow’s neighbors have complained to her for years about odors impacting the area. She made the motion to deny the permit application. “It stinks. ... It’s out of control,” Compton said. “It’s been four years. We’ve given this organization chance, after chance, after chance.” CFAM applied to the county for a conditional-

use permit to operate an indoor cannabis grow, nursery, culture lab, processing facility, and administrative offices on 39 acres. Planning commissioners approved the application in November 2018. Neighbors Sally Dean, Pamela Kremza, Ron and Linda Ralphs, and Judy Murphy appealed that decision to the Board of Supervisors. In her comments to the supervisors, Kremza claimed the cannabis smell from the grow “lingers over” her property and “inside our home,” and causes her young children to “not want to play outside.” “This is like pollution,” Kremza said. “We all feel the effects of headaches and nausea.” In response to both the county’s and neighbors’ allegations, CFAM attorney Mike Azat asked that the board continue the appeal to a future date. Azat claimed CFAM needed more time to respond to the charges—saying if the supervisors heard more of CFAM’s side of the story, they’d find “this wasn’t somebody flaunting the law.” “This is someone who thought they had permission to do something and they didn’t,” Azat said. “This is not the appropriate forum for an applicant to have an opportunity to examine the evidence against it.” He added that CFAM would offer to relocate their grows on the property and install an odor management system to address the odor impacts. But county supervisors weren’t convinced. John Peschong, 1st District supervisor, said the number and nature of CFAM’s alleged violations demonstrated that they weren’t “moving forward in good faith.”

More cities explore Community Choice Energy

a carbon-free energy portfolio—providing 3 percent rebates to customers. Surplus revenues are reinvested locally in energy programs like home solar projects and electric vehicle infrastructure, he said. Killigrew added that future projections indicate CCEs will provide 85 percent of the electricity load in California by 2025. He described it as a new energy paradigm, where CCEs manage power procurement while PG&E provides and maintains infrastructure. According to MBCP’s presentations to the local cities, SLO County customers could save an estimated $4 million per year in electricity costs if all residents and businesses joined. Paso Robles customers would save about $500,000; Arroyo Grande’s about $165,000. Arroyo Grande City Manager Jim Bergman told New Times that City Council members were receptive and supportive of the concept on April 9, but they wanted to schedule a future meeting for the public to ask more questions. “One [council member] said, ‘I’m going to ask you some pointed questions because this just sounds too good to be true,’” Bergman said with a laugh. Paso Robles Public Works Director Dick McKinley said the Paso City Council would likely vote in May on a first reading of an ordinance to finalize its decision. “The council was very supportive,” McKinley said. MBCP has similar presentations scheduled for Grover Beach and Pismo Beach City Council

DENIED The former site of Clearwater Nursery in Nipomo will no longer house a cannabis operation (pictured) after SLO County supervisors denied CFAM Management a permit on April 9.

On an issue that the supervisors are frequently at odds over, there was unanimous consensus in the room to turn away what was one of SLO County’s highest profile grows. “I think these violations are serious,” 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill said. “The message that has to be taken away is people operating within the industry need to follow the spirit and letter of the law.” ∆ —Peter Johnson

Following the lead of San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, more SLO County cities are now in talks with Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) about becoming partner agencies—as the budding public electricity provider looks to expand south. J.R. Killigrew, director of communications for MBCP, gave presentations to the Paso Robles City Council on April 2 and the Arroyo Grande City Council on April 9 about the process and benefits of joining the community choice energy (CCE) agency, which currently services Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties. MBCP will start serving the cities of SLO and Morro Bay in 2020—their city councils voted in late 2018 to join after dropping efforts to start a SLO-based program—growing its customer base to about 307,000 residents and businesses. “Since the cities of SLO and Morro Bay joined, it gave us a chance to think about the bigger picture,” Killigrew told New Times. “If we’re already serving two of the communities in SLO County, we’re starting to see a unified Central Coast program.” With 19 programs in existence statewide, CCEs purchase their own energy and sell it to customers via PG&E’s existing infrastructure. The agencies are governed by local elected officials, through boards of directors. Killigrew said since its launch in 2018, MBCP has been able to beat PG&E’s rates with

Supervisors deny Cambria campground

A proposed campground in Cambria was denied at the SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting on April 9 because the property in question doesn’t have a secondary access road for public safety. BKS Cambria LLC appealed the county Planning Commission’s Dec. 13, 2018, denial of the project to the board. According to a staff report, the Planning Commission denied the project because Cal Fire and state fire code require secondary access to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the campers and employees at the site. Max Schaefers, a BKS Cambria representative, told county supervisors that the owners spent three years developing this project, complying with the surveys and studies that the planning department had requested, and have tried to meet all the demands and requirements of the county. The only requirement they can’t comply with, he said, is creating a secondary access road. “Safety of our guests is our primary concern. This is why we added a helicopter pad for rescue,” Schaefers said. He said that similar to other recreational activities such as skydiving, there’s some risk associated with camping that adult individuals are aware of. “I want to point out again that we believe it should be the individual’s choice that we will notify them and give them disclaimers … and we’ll ask them if they’re OK with the property and these dangers and if they still want to camp on our site. And if they sign a waiver, why shouldn’t they?” Schaefers said. During public comment, Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) board member Amanda Rice said that BKS Cambria approached the CCSD board for a letter in support of the project. But the board decided not to take a position on the project at its Oct. 25, 2018, meeting. BKS proposed a four-phased campground project that would have included the reuse of the Cambria Air Force Station, a 25-space tent camping facility, future dormitories to accommodate up to 100 people, an existing building slated to be remodeled for use as a caretaker’s residence, refurbishing the former operations center for use as an emergency shelter, and a private helicopter pad for emergency air and rescue services. —Karen Garcia

VIEWER DISCRETION

by Jayson Mellom

Visitors to county parks want ‘dynamic experiences,’ report says An annual report from the SLO County Parks and Recreation Commission touted the potential of county parks to draw in more visitors from inside and outside the area, bringing in more revenue and other benefits with them. “The business from county Parks and Recreation generates jobs, funnels dollars to local businesses, increases property values, stimulates volunteer support, provides job training for youth, and fosters a strong sense of community by bringing people together,” said the report, provided to the SLO County Board of Supervisors on April 9. “It’s one of the best investments San Luis Obispo County has ever made and will continue to be one of the best investments in our future.” According to the report, more than 2 million people visited county parks last year and created an estimated economic value of $495 million between park revenue, higher property values and taxes, reduced health care costs, and environmental services. That value was created on a budget of $127 million, according to the report. The report went on to argue that the county could do more for both local visitors and those from outside of the area. It recommended completing longawaited projects like the Santa Margarita Garden Trail, the Morro Bay to Cayucos connector, and the Bob Jones Trail, as well as making improvements to Nipomo parks. The report also recommended that the county add funding for marketing to the parks budget that would pay for videos and other branded content to help create more visibility for the county parks and recreation offerings. Those and the other recommendations in the report will cost money. The report recommended that the county hire another park planner for the department who will be dedicated to aggressively seeking out grants and other funding sources to help finish projects. The report also floated the idea of creating an assessment district, increasing sales tax, or even exploring asking voters to approve a bond measure. The payoff could be worth the additional price tag. The report stated that creating “dynamic” and “experiencebased” park offerings—such as expanding hiking trails, camping, and partnering

with other community organizations like SLO Cal and Arts Obispo—would keep visitors engaged and coming back. “Residents and visitors are doing their part to show engagement and investment in a sustainable parks system,” the report stated, “and it is up to us to continue to do our part to meet the challenge of operating and developing a dynamic Parks and Recreation experience for the benefit of locals and tourists.” —Chris McGuinness

Lucia Mar increases the cost of its meals

Lucia Mar Unified School District students will see an increased price for school lunch and breakfast next academic school year. On April 9, the school board unanimously approved increasing the cost of breakfast by 50 cents, raising the price from $1.50 to $2. Lunch will increase by 25 cents— elementary school lunch will go from $2.50 to $2.75, middle school will increase from $2.75 to $3, and high school will increase from $3 to $3.25. Students who participate in the free and reduced lunch programs will not be affected by the proposal. Jim Empey, an assistant superintendent, said the food services department’s goals remain the same, which is to provide locally sourced, freshly prepared, highly nutritious, and quality food. The district has done this by partnering with local farms and producers, including Mallard Lake Ranch, Green Gold Organic Farms, and Edna’s Bakery. When the proposal to increase the cost of school-provided meals was first introduced to the board on Jan. 22,

Laurel Goins, director of food services, said an increase in labor costs and the need to repair and replace equipment is increasing the department’s costs. Additionally, Empey said the larger challenge is that not many students aren’t paying for school-provided meals. “The biggest hit is food carts, or our a la cart items, and in addition to that, we have less students that are qualified for free and reduced meals,” he said. According to a staff report, the food services program has operated for more than a decade without requiring a financial contribution to date; however, the program has been operating at a funding deficit since the 2012-13 fiscal year (except for the 2015-16 fiscal year). Empey attributes the deficit pattern to food selection and cost, participation rates, and the rising costs of operations and supplies that have outpaced revenue and labor costs. The cost increase is also needed to meet the requirements of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act that was signed to legislation in 2010. According to the Let’s Move website, in order to fit the standard, school-provided meals should have more grains, fruits, and vegetables; low-fat dairy products; and less sodium and fat. The projected ending 2018-19 fund balance for the food services department is roughly $26,000, the staff report states. This balance and the nearly $228,000 annual deficit trend led to the meal rate increases. Δ —Karen Garcia

News BY KAREN GARCIA

Traveling by taxi One SLO County local shares his story on making a taxicab business work in a world dominated by ride-sharing services

A

s Samuel Orr parks his taxicab, he sometimes hears people comment on his business through his window. “I pick up people that say, ‘I didn’t know we had taxis here.’ I mean there’s only a couple regularly driving around, so you could easily overlook one,” Orr said. In an era of ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft, taxis do still exist in SLO County, and Orr is making sure his business stays alive. His taxicab can’t be missed—it’s not your traditional cab. He has a tan and gray van that seats six with “Central Coast Taxi” written on the side of the cab in neon green. At 39, Orr has owned his taxicab business for about six years now. Before he purchased the business from its previous owner, Orr had been driving a taxi for about 10 years. He didn’t imagine himself as a taxi driver, but now he can’t see himself doing anything else. Around the time of his purchase, Orr said he was figuring out his next steps in life— go back to school or make an investment and own his own cab business. The biggest draw for him was that he liked being an

independent contractor because he didn’t really have to answer to management, as he would have in a traditional workplace. “You get to sit down for a living and not be on your feet all day, and the money is really good sometimes in a short period of time,” he said. “I like interacting with people in a shorter time frame. I think it’s really enjoyable, and most rides are just a few minutes.” According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2017 the median pay for taxi drivers, ride-hailing drivers, and chauffeurs was about $11.96 per hour, and the industry provided about 305,000 jobs in 2016. Central Coast Taxi consists of Orr and two other drivers. They service the Five Cities area, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, parts of the city of San Luis Obispo, and Los Osos. “I’d like to grow the business a little bit, but I think that quality over quantity is really important, rather than just buying a bunch of cars and filling them with drivers,” Orr said. In terms of his competitors Uber and Lyft, he said there are several reasons why his business is still around. First, he said, Central Coast Taxi is his business

that he’s invested in and still has control over. If a customer has any questions and calls Central Coast Taxi, someone will either pick up right away or call back within a few minutes to answer questions. There aren’t any automated operators; you’ll talk to a person every time, he said. Orr added that unlike Uber or Lyft, customers can call Central Coast Taxi and schedule a pickup ahead of time. “Especially for important stuff like early morning rides to the airport, I mean even if they use Uber or Lyft, people don’t really want to chance finding an Uber driver at 4 in the morning,” Orr said. The other advantage of his business is that he and his drivers can park in front of airports, restaurants, and bars—ready for hire. “You can’t beat that, I mean the vehicle is there in zero minutes. That’s one of the better parts about being a cab driver, when you don’t have calls or fares being requested, you can make something happen,” Orr said. Although there are many positives to being a cab driver, Orr said he has lost customers because before they exit a restaurant or bar, they’ve often already requested an Uber through an app on their phone. Orr said he doesn’t see himself creating an app for his business because it’s very hyper-local, and people find out about his services from word of mouth. To own a taxicab service or become a taxicab driver, people must go through

a process with the city like any other business, but the process varies as each city does things differently. Pismo Beach City Clerk Erica Inderlied said new taxi service companies need to apply with the city clerk’s department. The department then schedules a hearing before the City Council, and if approved by the council, the applicant goes to the police department for additional compliance measures. Similar to having a new business, a taxi operator permit comes with a fee. A new permit that includes a background check with an existing company costs $108. For a new company, it’s $243. It also costs $95 to renew the permit and $56 per vehicle inspection. The fees were reduced to these current prices in 2017. While the fees were reduced, Orr said it does deter people from wanting to become new drivers as opposed to becoming a ride-share driver who doesn’t have to pay any fees. For now, Orr plans to keep his business small and possibly expand with a few more drivers in the future. It would get him to the point where he wouldn’t have to drive six nights a week. “It’s been difficult at times to make a normal traditional life around work because of how time consuming it can be. I would definitely like to drive a little less in the future but not altogether because I do enjoy it,” he said. ∆ Staff writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

Grover Beach homelessness project backers, opponents hope for compromise

A

rroyo Grande resident Ben Oakley acknowledged that neighborhood opposition to plans for a new homeless services facility on the city’s northeastern border in Grover Beach got off on a bit of a frenzied and emotional foot. “At first, we were really worried and caught off guard,” Oakley explained. “We felt very disenfranchised. We felt there was a lack of transparency in what was happening. I think a lot of that tenor has subsided somewhat.” While perhaps more cool-headed now, many neighbors’ opinions about the proposal haven’t moved an inch. Their slogan is “right idea, wrong location,” and it’s plastered on yard signs at residences surrounding Hillside Church on Newport Avenue. The 5 Cities Homeless Coalition (5CHC) is in escrow to buy the church property, which, in partnership with Peoples’ SelfHelp Housing, it hopes to refurbish and develop into administrative offices, a transitional housing center for homeless

RIGHT IDEA, WHICH LOCATION? Plans for low-income housing and a homeless services complex at Hillside Church in Grover Beach face strong resistance from neighboring residents, who have taken to yard signs to express their opposition.

youth (ages 18 to 24), and 20 units of permanent affordable housing. Homeless advocates say the project brings long-awaited and desperately needed housing, case management, and resources to individuals fighting homelessness in South County. Neighboring residents say they’re in favor of the concept but feel the location— in a single-family residential zone in close proximity to schools—is inappropriate and could pose a public safety risk. Neighbors also say they felt blindsided

by the plans, which came following two winters where the Hillside Church was used as a winter warming center without many residents’ knowledge, Oakley said. As word trickled out in late February about 5CHC’s intent to buy and develop the site—and that the area city councils had given their conceptual support for it—the neighborhood went on the defensive. “Right about the same time we heard about the warming center, there was a hearing at the Grover City Council regarding this big proposed expansion, and it all clicked,” Oakley said. After several emotional city and county public meetings in March and early April, both Oakley and the project’s backers said they’re now focused on talking and finding common ground. While neighbors scour the real estate market for other properties that could suit the project, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing CEO John Fowler said he wants to open an “honest” dialogue with the community where everything can be discussed. Both sides agreed that more communication and information sharing is needed. “Our job is to do as much community outreach to the people and see if we can change some hearts and minds, and do something that becomes a win-win situation for everybody,” Fowler told New Times. “We’re most interested in continuing to have dialogue with people. If there’s another viable site, we’d love to chat with them. It’s not the site, it’s the need.

We need to make sure the needs and the services in that community are addressed.” For now, though, all signs point toward the project moving forward as it was planned. On April 4, the San Luis Obispo County Homeless Services Oversight Council recommended a $2.6 million allocation of new state grants to support the Hillside project. The grant funds, contingent on an April 23 Board of Supervisors’ vote, are critical to help pay for property acquisition. After that, 5CHC and Peoples’ SelfHelp Housing would submit a formal application to the city for the project. As far as changing course, Laurel Weir, head of homeless services at SLO County, said the grant funds may have some flexibility in terms of project location. But per state rules, they must all be spent by June 2021. Facing a time crunch, stakeholders from both sides hope that cooler heads can prevail, and that a mutual solution can be reached in time. “We don’t want to block the [grant] funding,” Oakley said, “but it’s going to require some of our city leaders and elected officials to come up with an alternative quickly. I think we’re going to be successful.” “I think everybody wants to solve this,” Fowler added. “I’m optimistic we can.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

From the earth

Natural building techniques aren’t part of modern society, but some want to change that BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

isps of wind whip soft sand up from a private road that began in and meanders to what could rightfully be labeled the middle of nowhere. Low-slung buildings creep into view between the squat, stocky vegetation that covers the desert hills outside of Cuyama. Goats snack on shrubs, and a couple of white sheep dogs bound next to the car, barking. A trail takes visitors from the parking area to an office constructed of straw bales coated in clay soil, sand, and straw. “Welcome to Quail Springs,” a sign says. Soft, weathered earthen walls the same color as the hillsides line the planters that border an outdoor common space. Chickens cluck away in the large coop below, and Creedence Clearwater Revival wonders “Who Stopped the Rain?” through the walls of a yurt that houses a kitchen. “Welcome to the farm,” Quail Springs Executive Director Janice Setser says. This experiment in sustainable living is part educational experience, part trial and error, part social exercise. The life on this 450 acres in California’s high desert is complex with many layers, Setser says. And it’s extreme, with temperature swings that come with snow, ice, and blistering heat from winter to summer. Containing a farm, a greenhouse, composting toilets, yurts, naturally crafted buildings, 11 staff members, a handful of interns who come and go, and lots of outdoor space, permaculture is at the heart of everything that’s done around here. “[Society has] separated things out so specific and specialized,” Setser says. “And permaculture is just putting it all back together again.” The goal is to close as many loops in the system as possible, to live off the land and regenerate it at the same time, to meet basic needs from the earth at your feet in a way that can last. It’s a relationship with the wilderness and the community tending the land—a way of remembering something that humans seem to have forgotten. She admits, though, that the living experiment in sustainability is difficult and imperfect. But, Setser says, the Quail Springs community is leaning into it.

Walking past a pile of dried rubble laced with straw, she points out that these are earthen walls that a couple of Cal Poly students and a professor performed earthquake testing on over the last several months. The 12-inch thick walls were built out of a material called cob, a mixture of soil, sand, and straw. After the testing was done, the walls were knocked over on purpose, she adds. Cob, which is one of the primary building materials on this property, isn’t part of California’s building codes. But Quail Springs is working to change that and so are others who believe that cob is a cheaper, more energy-efficient and sustainable, and less toxic way of building. Quail Springs Natural Building Director Sasha Rubin said the information that’s out there about cob building is anecdotal, and modern codes, architects, and engineers need numbers. “In order for people to build in urban areas in seismically active zones, we need engineering numbers,” Rubin said. “We need engineers to be able to stamp our plans to say, yes, this is safe.” In 2018, Santa Clara University students performed the first ever fullscale wall tests on four cob walls, some of which were reinforced with different materials, including rebar and a wire mesh. Although straw gives cob tensile strength, Rubin said, other ways of reinforcing walls could be key to incorporate into a potential building code for the state. The partnership between Cal Poly and Quail Springs will add to that research. With four similarly structured walls that underwent six seismic tests, Rubin said the collaboration multiplies the amount of earthquake data that’s out there on earthen walls. The results of those tests aren’t ready yet, but Rubin said she believes they went well. Next up on the list of tests for the earthen walls is fire. She said that Quail Springs is looking for funding to build a cob wall at a fire testing facility. “Normally, all of these tests are being done by the manufacturing companies that are hoping to profit off the materials they’re selling,” Rubin said. “Most of the materials that we use just come from onsite: We just dig them up.”

Dirt rains onto a tarp as Chad Franco trims the last layer of cob he applied. Using a hand saw, he carves out the excess around the edges so this layer is flush with the previous one. The gigantic white walls of the new BMW dealership on Calle Joaquin loom behind him, as does the chatter of auto service professionals. A fence and less than 100 feet separate that property from this one, which belongs to City Farm SLO. On the plot of land that Teresa Lees rents from City Farm for the Our Global Family Garden, Franco is building a cob structure that will eventually become a children’s playhouse. Lees designed her garden with each of the continents in mind, and this structure is part of the Africa space. “I was in Africa, and we lived in buildings like that,” she says. “Instead of being a white woman visiting the Third World … [I thought] I’m going to bring back what I learned there to the First World.” With a degree in international agriculture from UC Davis and an agricultural teaching credential from Cal Poly, Lees worked in small villages, connecting with people who lived off the land, and doing the same herself. That connection, and the world’s interconnection, is what Our Global Family Garden is all about. It’s a teaching space dedicated to showcasing permaculture, compassion, connection


with the land, and the diversity of what can be grown around the world. Next to the fence, a smaller hole than you would expect is evidence of the clay soil that was incorporated into the structure. Depending on how much clay the dirt holds, the cob mixture of soil, sand, and straw is unique to each building site. It has to be the perfect consistency. After making some test bricks, Franco says, they dropped them to see which ones held up the best. In this case, the mixture was 25 percent clay soil

and I went ahead and just booked it,” he says. “I just really got into it because I’m mechanically inclined and I love working with my hands.” During the 12-day workshop, Franco and 10 other students built an outdoor sauna. At the end of that workshop, his teacher was running another workshop in Portugal, so he followed her again. They built an outdoor kitchen with an oven attached to it. Then, there was a monthlong workshop in Texas, where they built a 150-square-foot studio with a loft in it. He’s now attempting to start a cob building PHOTO BY BRANDI LOPEZ PHOTOGRAPHY business on the Central Coast called Cobblers Delight. “I wanted to learn as much as I could to build a big enough structure that someone could live in,” Franco says. “If I can build my house for a fraction of the cost with good merit and good principles, then I would be happy.” Cob is similar to ARTISTIC LICENSE Chad Franco, who recently started a adobe, except it’s not cob building business called Cobber’s Delight, uses iron oxides crafted into bricks.

into the light. The point of this experiment is to figure out what works, Setser says, but it’s also to give others the ability to do something similar if they choose. Quail Springs is in the process of getting its structures permitted by Ventura County, which is the county most of its property happens to be on. She says the 450 acres also touch San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. “The point isn’t just that we get our buildings permitted. The goal is so that other people who want to build out of earth can do so,” Setser says. “Living light on the earth. ...

But really, it’s a design system. You could take those principles and apply them to a business, Rubin said. “A lot of it has to do with looking around your environment and how to grow something in that environment. ...

Young wings B ill Siegel has been flying planes since 1965 when he joined the Naval Academy. After serving as a Navy pilot for 20 years, he became a pilot instructor and then an airline pilot for Northwest Airlines for another two decades. After Siegel retired, he moved to Paso Robles with his family and started going to the Paso Robles Municipal Airport to fly. It was then that he decided it was the right time to join the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), an international organization of aviation enthusiasts based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Siegel had known about the association throughout his career, but the Young Eagles program is what made him want to pursue a membership. Dick Knapinski, the EAA’s communications advisor, said the Young Eagles program started in 1992 after association members were surveyed about what was the most important thing they could do as an organization. The overwhelming response was to get young people interested in aviation and flying. “We have people such as Bill, who volunteer their time, their airplanes, and the fuel to introduce kids to flying and general aviation aircraft,” Knapinski said. The association’s original goal was to fly 1 million kids by 2003, which was the centennial of the Wright Brothers’ first flight—the brothers were aviation pioneers. The EAA made its goal two months before the anniversary date and continued the momentum. “Now we’re well over 2.1 million kids flown by more than 15,000 pilots over the past 26 years, so that’s become quite an impressive program,” Knapinski said. Siegel in Paso Robles has flown 100 of those 2.1 million kids. “I’ll take them as far as their curiosity will go,” Siegel said. Through the Young Eagles program, Siegel will take kids on a 20-minute airplane ride with all of the bells and whistles. After Siegel gets the child familiar with the body of the plane, it’s time to take a look inside and gear them up for their first flight. “I put them in the right seat, strap them in, and give them a headset,” he said. Depending on their age, Siegel allows them to push on the throttle and steer the plane, all with his direction.

After the flight is over, the child is able to sign their name in an official EAA Young Eagles log book and sign up to be an EAA member online—the membership is free until the age of 18. There are plenty of incentives to being a member, which includes taking an online private ground school course—a $200 value—for free. Siegel and Knapinski both said that the program is not only to get young people excited about flying, it’s also about filling a practical need for new pilots in the field. Knapinski said that Boeing estimates that the industry will need 15,000 new pilots over the next 10 years because of retirement and growth. Young Eagles could also be the next aviation mechanics, air traffic controllers, or flight attendants. “All of those things can really lead to a sense of accomplishment, a sense of achievement, regardless of what your background might be. Because the airplane doesn’t care where you came from—if you’re a man or a woman, if you’re white, black, Hispanic, it doesn’t care,” Knapinski said. “It just wants to be flown properly.” The Paso Robles Experimental Aircraft Association chapter is holding a flying rally, offering free flights to kids on May 18. For more on the free flights, visit 465.eaachapter.org. To learn more about the Young Eagles program and how to arrange a private free flight, visit eaa.org.

Pushing the future Two SLO County cities join a clean energy program

O

ur region has a tremendous opportunity to develop and benefit from a clean local energy economy. In support of this, we are thrilled to announce that community choice energy is coming to Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. Starting in January of 2020, if you are a resident of or operate a business in either city, you can be a part of a locally controlled public agency that re-invests heavily in our communities. The agency, named Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), will provide carbon-free electricity with a periodic rebate of 3.7 percent on the generation component of your electricity bill, and will allow you to access innovative energy programs. Monterey Bay Community Power started from humble and grassroots beginnings in 2013 and officially formed after four years, thousands of hours, and hundreds of community events. Electricity customers in cities and unincorporated areas throughout Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey counties began receiving service in 2018 and received rebates close to $5 million through MBCP’s innovative rebate model. In 2019, MBCP is investing $1.2 million in electric vehicle incentives and income-qualifying solar installations and is on track to invest even more in 2020. As a public agency, customers will have a direct say at public meetings and

through their elected leaders to decide if we spend that additional revenue on bigger rebates, electric vehicle subsidies, or something else entirely. Over the past few years, the cities of Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo have spent significant time assessing community choice energy options. Between Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo, our city councils considered the topic at more than 10 public meetings. After extensive discussion, in December of 2018 we decided to partner with MBCP. Since a community choice energy program is an innovative concept, we would like to share some facts about MBCP: • MBCP estimates that cost savings through the standard rebate for Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo customers in 2020 will be between $700,000 and $900,000. • MBCP has contracted for the largest solar-plus-battery-storage energy system in California as well as two other renewable energy projects for wind and solar with battery storage, which will meet 20 percent of its annual demand. • MBCP is debt free and has more than $50 million in reserves. • Discount programs are available for low-income households. • Solar customers receive the same net energy metering program as

the existing utility, except higher net surplus compensation rates and additional cost savings through MBCP’s standard rebate. • MBCP’s power supply is carbon-free from eligible renewable resources, as well as through large hydro-electric resources that meet the California Energy Commission’s and California Public Utilities Commission’s standards for procurement and resource adequacy. • All eligible PG&E customers are enrolled in MBCP, and each customer will have the choice to opt out and stay with PG&E. Additionally, customers will have the option to opt up to MBprime, which supports 100 percent renewable energy. The benefits of community choice energy are significant. We are proud to be able to participate in how we procure energy and re-invest in our communities. We are optimistic about a bright future of clean and affordable electricity, innovative energy programs, and a collaborative Central Coast community choice energy program. ∆ Heidi Harmon is the mayor of San Luis Obispo, and John Headding is the mayor of Morro Bay.

Commentary Letters Let’s ban glyphosate

Remember, as a child, how we delighted when we saw dandelions in the lawn? Possibly our parents gave us an allowance if we pulled them with a tool. Remember how weeds would pop up in the sidewalk and we’d use a knife to clear them from the cracks? It took time. We had to bend over. We had to use a tool. It took labor and we burned calories. Then, in the 1970s (and to the demise of health and the possible death of untold people and animals), Monsanto convinced us they had a better idea. Roundup, aka glyphosate, became our savior. Why do manual labor when we can spray Roundup—glyphosate? Why hire laborers to till or hoe when you can hire far fewer laborers to spray Roundup—glyphosate? Around 2000, Monsanto’s patent expired, and now glyphosate is ubiquitous and marketed under numerous names. Glyphosate is now estimated to be throughout our food chain, in every brand of California wine, and now seeping into our water supply. Poison now penetrates our systems and causes untold negative results. In early April, Los Angeles County supervisors placed a moratorium on the use of glyphosate until the effect on health is better understood. It’s time for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties to do the same. Poison kills weeds, animals, people—our earth. Ethel Landers Arroyo Grande LETTERS continued page 15


Opinion LETTERS from page 14

The root cause of the world’s problems I’d like to say a word about torture. We hear a lot about it these days; it’s all over the news. We recoil at the thought of torture. And yet, every single, solitary day, we are all being tortured. Now, you may wonder, “How is that?” And that’s probably just because you haven’t yet realized how you’re being subjected to it. This particular torture is probably responsible for much of the suffering and pain in this world. If we could just face it and take care of the problem, then finally, we could all make the world a much happier place. Still not sure what I’m talking about? Well, here it is. For years—no, decades—we have all been subjected unwillingly to the same, stinking, horrible songs played in stores and businesses over and over and over and over again. It is literal torture. Play it one more time, and I will talk way beyond my name, rank, and serial number. How in the world did people ever buy into this myth that we all want to hear the same songs day in and day out, week after week, month after month, year after year, decade after decade? And not only that, but they are played loudly. The same horrible songs by horrible singers like Rod Stewart, Kim Carnes, Rick Astley, and even tunes that once sounded nice began to grate after the first hundred times or so. The first thousand times, one feels annoyance. The first ten thousand times, one feels nausea and revulsion. After perhaps a hundred thousand times of hearing the same songs over and over again, one starts pondering termination. Now, you are probably all realizing, hey, this guy is onto something! And I swear it is responsible for people dreading going into work, people quitting jobs early, people unconsciously spending the shortest time possible in stores buying things (I’m sure the store owners would like them to spend more time there). This is probably what has contributed to the exploding popularity of online shopping. So, dear store owners and business owners, please get a clue and stop torturing us, unless you would like to keep pushing your customers over to Amazon. You think millennials are killing department stores? No, these store owners are contributing to their own demise! At the very least, if you absolutely must play music, please select from a variety of tunes without lyrics; there are a lot out there to choose from. I’m begging you, stop torturing your customers and your employees, and let’s make the world a better place. Thank you for listening. Now, I think I will retreat into a dark and quiet room. Next up, a word about advertising. Mike Robertson San Luis Obispo

Trump’s campaign officials and advisors, and his personal attorney—all of whom admitted to previously unrevealed meetings with Russian officials, Russianconnected “handlers,” and Russian oligarchs during the campaign and after Trump’s inauguration. Trump’s campaign manager shared polling data with the Russians and has had lucrative (and suspect) financial connections with them, and Trump himself is refusing to reveal financial info on his personal business connections. Trump’s critics further mistrust Trump’s unwillingness to personally testify before Mueller’s team, his refusal to reveal his taxes (although every other president of recent history has done so), his seizure of the translator’s minutes of his private meeting with Putin in Helsinki, and his (documented) habitual lying about everything. In too many ways, these facts cast doubt on our president’s loyalties as well as his attorney general’s public whitewash of him. Congress has every reason, in its constitutional duty of oversight of the executive branch, to demand records that pertain to our president’s authoritative leanings and his relationship with our greatest adversary. I, for one, am glad Congress is finally doing its constitutional duty of being a “check and balance” on an unpredictable president, who admires and favors autocrats and has access to the means of worldwide destruction. Why would a sensible person not want Congress to explore every possible avenue to either clear the president of every suspected wrongdoing or prevent any harm to our country? In the end, wouldn’t a transparent inquiry and finding serve the American people best? As an 88-year-old, I have lived long enough to have seen the rise of fascism prior to WWII. Unfortunately, I am witnessing it again, here and throughout the world. Those who fight to stifle the free press—which is the safeguard of democracy—repeat the lies of propagandists, and will not question the morally questionable acts of our “dear leader” are pawns in the hands of an aspiring despot, who famously said at one of his huge rallies: “Don’t believe what you read or see. I’ll tell you what to believe.” The only way to fight this fascistic credo is to learn more, not less, and speak out. Istar Holliday Arroyo Grande

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AL FONZI

We need discussion

I

just finished watching an extensive interview of international correspondent Lara Logan by Fox News host Mark Levin. No doubt “liberal/ progressive” alarm bells are ringing with the mention of Fox News and Levin in the same sentence, but his weekend programs provide in-depth analysis and mostly uninterrupted dialogue by his guests as they respond to his questions. Logan was the former CBS News chief foreign correspondent who spent five years in Iraq during the most violent years of the war, additional years living/working in Afghanistan since the beginning of that war, and was in Egypt during the Arab Spring. In the latter, she was subjected to an extremely violent sexual assault, nearly murdered by a mob of Muslim men, and rescued by Muslim women. Yet she courageously continued working in dangerous lands while maintaining her independence as a journalist. In 2012, Logan was present in Libya during the Benghazi attack on our diplomatic mission. She reported the “cover-up” of that story and the destruction of Chief of Station Gregory Hicks’ career after he told the truth to congressional committees about what actually occurred during the murder of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Logan stated it was a planned and highly coordinated attack by al-Qaeda against the embassy annex to mark the 11th

anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Logan was emphatic that Hicks’ version was accurate but embarrassing to the Obama administration, which then used its media allies to bury Hicks and the truth. Lots of things get buried these days with dire consequences for all of us. One of the greatest impediments to sound decision-making is a psychological hypothesis known as “groupthink,” essentially a subtle but detrimental group concurrence process that begins to work during critical decision-making deliberations. It was best described in Irving Janis’ book Groupthink, which analyzed the deliberations of high-level policy makers during various U.S. administrations, from the Korean and Vietnam wars, the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, to the Cuban missile crisis, and other events. The book was mandatory reading during my commissioning process as an Army officer, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in foreign policy decision-making. It applies even more to society today as media outlets succumb to a herd mentality when reporting on major but controversial policy issues. Logan addressed this in her interview and how there are certain subjects hazardous to the careers of journalists. An example is reporting on a story about climate change taking a dissenting view; it can be career-ending not only

DENTAL CARE

to scientists but to journalists as well. Attacks on conservative talk-show hosts via economic terrorism (Logan’s description) and organizing boycotts of advertisers who dare to subscribe/support non-conforming opinion shows—such as Fox hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, or Laura Ingraham—are becoming commonplace and seek to censor contrary points of view from the public. The LA Times has made it clear it will not print stories on climate change that challenge the “consensus,” and the TV news show Meet the Press recently broadcast a show featuring climate change, boasting there would be no guests with dissenting views during that broadcast. This bias demands that the public uncritically accept whatever is being spoon-fed to them regarding a whole host of topics while passively accepting whatever economic hardships these policies impose at whatever cost with no alternatives being presented. If the proponents are wrong, nobody will be held accountable except the public, which will bear the costs, hardships, and lost opportunities. Partisanship has blatantly replaced objectivity in much of the media, so much so that facts that should be common knowledge are buried, leading many to be uninformed. For instance, one of my many critics recently repeated the myth that “before 9/11, the White House disregarded multiple warnings from the FBI and CIA,” citing the Aug. 6, 2011, presidential briefing as evidence of being “asleep at the wheel,” (“A coherent, fact-based opinion,” April 4). Checking the 9/11 Commission report,

which addresses this issue, chapter 8, “The System was Blinking Red,” pages 254 to 265, it’s clear that the president was never given any specific threat information or specifics about an imminent attack on the U.S. The FBI, responsible for counterterrorism on U.S. soil had no information that was “actionable” for the president. Yet, the myths prevail. My critic also states that the “dossier” used to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign was not manufactured by Russian agents despite multiple news reports confirming so, such as The Washington Post’s story by Adam Entous, Devlin Barrett, and Rosalind S. Helderman confirming that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party paid for research that led to the Russian dossier. (“Clinton Campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier,” The Washington Post, Oct. 24, 2017). Media “groupthink” and hatred of this president continues to bury information much needed by the American people, themselves the victim of a national malady of intellectual conformity and shallowness. In foreign policy, groupthink has repeatedly led the nation into disaster. The continued attempt to enforce intellectual conformity via group consensus bodes ill for free speech for all. ∆ 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

Do behave! A

m I having a flashback or déjà vu? I feel like we’ve already had a community fight about a facility serving homeless individuals that residents threw a NIMBY fit over. Oh wait, I know. It happens every damn time! It was only a few months ago in November that I was wagging my little Shredderlicious finger at the city of Atascadero for poo-pooing a muchneeded homeless warming shelter right out of town. Lucky for those without a roof over their heads, a nonprofit stepped up to take care of something that the city basically refused to do. Transitional Food and Shelter found some churches willing to lend a roof for the night, set up cots during rainstorms and cold nights, housed between 20 and 60 homeless individuals for the night, and packed everything up by morning. And for the next city full of NIMBYs that’s going to get an infamous Shredder finger wag, I’ll turn my attention to not one, but two! Residents in Grover Beach and Arroyo Grande basically lost their damn minds over the 5 Cities Homeless Coalition’s decision to purchase the Hillside Church on Newport Avenue without talking to every one on the block about it first! Hmm. Is that one of the caveats to purchasing a property? I had no idea. I might need to check in with my fellow creekbed

residents about the new cardboard box that I dragged under the bridge because I can’t afford to put it anywhere else. I thought this was a free country, where an entity with money can buy whatever it damn well pleases without talking to anybody about it first. Isn’t that Capitalism 101? The property is still in escrow and the project that’s proposed for the property is still in the conceptual stages. Those plans include transitional housing for young adults aged 18 to 24, and 20 permanently affordable housing units (brought to you by Peoples’ SelfHelp Housing). But, and here’s a key statement, nothing has been decided yet. Yet, the good(ish) people of the Five Cities are flipping out—and they’ve already made lawn signs! Lawn signs! “Right idea, wrong location,” the signs proclaim. They should say: “Caution, NIMBY at work. Anywhere but here.” Maybe you guys should call San Luis Obispo’s NIMBY king T. Keith Gurnee. I heard that he knows a couple of things about lawn signs and getting his way. You could get all of the advice you need with one phone call! Arroyo Grande resident Ben Oakley complained about a lack of transparency and said that residents found out that the location had been used as a winter

warming center without their knowledge! Hey guys, I’ve got some news for you. Turns out that churches are used as warming shelters all over this county without ringing the neighborhood alarm. Because when people hear the word homelessness, all they can think of are drug-addled hobos with mental health issues who sexually assault small children. We’re talking about youth and families here! People who probably need some help to get their adult life started on the right foot because they don’t have anyone else to turn to. Where do you want to put them? In an industrial area? Out of sight, out of mind? Away from town? Turns out, if you’re away from town, you might need a secondary access road due to public safety concerns, which is a big problem for BKS Cambria LLC’s Max Schaefers, who represented a proposed campground and weird dormitory lodging facility in Cambria. He seems to think that a helicopter pad is just as good as a road! “Safety of our guests is our primary concern,” he told the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors on April 9. “We’ll ask them if they’re OK with the property and these dangers and if they still want to camp on our site. And if they sign a waiver, why shouldn’t they?” Oh really Schaefers? What are you going to put on the waiver? “In case of fire, the only way out is two-by-two via

helicopter. You buy, we’ll fly. Cambria is a tinderbox full of dead Monterey pines. Sorry we don’t have a public safety access route on the property, but you are camping, and that’s risky. Sign here.” It’s like he forgot about the fire that swept through Paradise last year. A bunch of people died because the town didn’t have good access routes for emergency situations that called for an evacuation. “Denied!” county supervisors voted. Man, the elected crew that lords over SLO County was on a tear that day! They unanimously kicked CFAM out of Nipomo! One of the largest cannabis growing operations in the county, gone! Why? Oh, just unpermitted structures, growing thousands of more plants than are allowed by the county ordinance, illegal subletting to cannabis growers outside of SLO County, and being a shitty neighbor. Is that all? If I was a fellow cannabis grower, I would definitely want CFAM out of town. WTF was the point of legalizing the pot industry and crafting ordinances if you dumbasses are just going to flout it anyway? If you want to be legally viable, then be legal! Don’t be a shady CFAM baby. ∆ The Shredder just wants everyone to behave—well almost everyone. Send comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

The Sun in Northern Santa Barbara County is looking for its next staff writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, source-wrangling, story-chasing someone. Are you sick of editing or regurgitating press releases day after day? Or maybe it’s those damn list things— you know the ones: “Top 10 hottest places to eat your lunch on a rainy day.” Or maybe it’s just not being able to put the time and reporting into a story that deserves it: the weeks and repeated phone calls that give a story what it needs to ripen into the hard-charging, data-filled narrative it’s dying to be; the time that turns a “meh” story into one that blows a hole in the status quo. Can you see the big picture of what a story means to a community? Is that what drives you? Do you know what it takes to—yes, we know, it’s cliché—make a difference in the lives of the people you cover? Does that sort of thing matter to you? If so, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for: a staff writer who isn’t afraid to take on the tedious, the tenuous, or the talented. That certain someone who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to the communities we cover at the Sun and New Times. Oil, agricultural, water, and environmental advocacy aren’t the only things that drive this place—although those are pretty juicy beats. There’s more, and we want to hire someone who can drive his or herself to unearth those stories and tell them in a meaningful way. Let us know if you’ve got what it takes. We dare you.

Don’t call it Poly Royal! Country star Casey Donahew plays after the Cal Poly Open House Rodeo

C

al Poly’s annual Open House is upon us this weekend, which means SLO Town will be inundated with visitors ready to check out all the goingson at the prestigious university. In addition to lots of booths, displays, presentations, and tours of the various colleges, there are also concerts galore, and the biggest one of all is country star Casey Donahew following the closing night of the two-day Cal Poly Rodeo on Saturday, April 13, in the Alex G. Spanos Stadium (8 p.m.; all ages; $10 for concert-only tickets at facebook.com/ ASIEvents/; if you want to go to the 5:30 p.m. rodeo first, tickets are $35 general, $30 for students, $55 for seat-back chairs, $15 for kids ages 2 to 10; free for kids under 2). Donahew is touring in support of his new greatest hits record, 15 Years — The Wild Ride, featuring 15 fan favorites. During his rise to stardom, Donahew has gone from a popular regional Texas performer to a national sensation, racking up 18 No. 1 singles, more than 70 million on-demand digital music streams through Spotify and Apple, more than 268 million streams on Pandora, and he has more than half-a-million followers on his social media platforms. There’s something grittily charming about Donahew’s hangdog tales. Take the “love” song “Double-Wide Dream” off the 2011 album of the same name: “She likes to cuss and fight and she can drink all night/ And she can roll one up till

I’m feelin’ right/ She drives a truck with swampers and rims/ And an Alpine pumping through Kicker tens/ She dips snuff and she don’t spit/ Never owned a bra and her shirts don’t fit// And I love that pretty little country girl/ She’s rockin’ this redneck’s world.” Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band will open for Donahew, but they also play on their own after the rodeo on Friday, April 12 (rodeo at 5:30 p.m.; $5 for children ages 2 to 10; TEXAS RUFFIAN The Casey Donahew Band plays after the Cal Poly Rodeo on April 13, in the Alex G. $25 for students, $30 Spanos Stadium. for general admission, and $45 for chair-back The Cal Poly Open House Recital Flosstradamus on Friday, April 12 (9 seats.

Mortal Orchestra plays the Fremont on Saturday, April 13 (8:30 p.m.; all ages; $25 at Boo Boo’s or fremontslo.com). What began as Ruban Nielson’s modest bedroom recording project in 2010 with some anonymously posted online tracks was soon signed to Fat Possum Records and widespread touring. Popular comedian, writer, and podcast host Hannibal Buress appears at the Fremont Theater this Sunday, April 14 (8 p.m.; 16-and-older; $42 to $60 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com). The New York Times called him one of the most “supremely gifted and respected” comics around. Canadian electronic duo Bob Moses, featuring Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, plays the Fremont on Monday, April 15 (8 p.m.; 16-and-older; $27 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com).

This international music collective is on their second North American tour, following the release of their self-titled debut album last March. Their shows are visual and sonic feasts, with psychedelically Technicolor lighting and irresistibly danceable indie pop. Frank Ocean and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig are fans. Superorganism’s members hail from Maine (by way of Japan), New Zealand,

After a successful debut, SUN-1 x Moon Bird will team up for another avant-garde show at Bang the Drum Brewery this Friday, April 12 (7:30 to 9:30 p.m.; all ages; free). “I’m bringing out an all-original instrumental space farmer jazz group at Bang the Drum every Friday in April,” Moon Bird explained, “and hopefully longer if all goes well and it’s the best spot. Delicious chaos bebop dance breaks, melodic scales, and feels meets robots, allimprovised, and warm, warm tones. I’ll be playing horns and Wurlitzer through tube amps with spring reverb, with David Escamilla on bass and Isaiah Bueno, who hands down is the most inventive drummer I’ve seen play in a long time, maybe ever. And I think he’s like 15. Anyway, it’s a special group handpicked to jive and strive.” SLOfolks presents Americana/folk singer Shannon McNally in two shows this week: Friday, April 12, in Coalesce Bookstore (7 p.m.; all ages; $20 at (805) 772-2880); and Saturday, April 13, in Castoro Cellars (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $20 at (805) 238-0725).

Paso Robles Children’s Museum installs new solar energy system

The Paso Robles Children’s Museum received a donation of more than $12,000 from A.M. Sun Solar, a Paso Robles-based solar installation company. The donation was presented to the museum’s board of directors during Free Family Play Day, which featured solar themed crafts and educational exhibits, on Saturday, March 30. The event was held to celebrate the museum’s newly installed solar energy system, which consists of 44 solar panels. The new system will offset 100 percent of the museum’s electricity usage and free up funds to install new exhibits. Adam Scorby, the solar consultant for the project, also donated his commission of $2,000 back to the museum. “We really appreciate everything A.M. Solar has done for us and this donation is the frosting on the cake,” Jennifer Smith, executive director of the Paso Robles Children’s Museum, said in a press release. “We know how important renewable energy is and we look forward to using our new solar system to help educate the next generation.”

Bradlee is the former managing editor of The Boston Globe, whose investigations of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church were chronicled in the Academy Award-winning film, Spotlight. John Slattery portrayed Bradlee in the film. The talk is free and open to the public. Copies of Bradlee’s new book will be available for sale and signing.

SLO Museum of Art director steps down after 20 years

A

s the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art hits the 25 percent mark toward raising $15 million for a new building, its long time executive director, Karen Kile, is stepping down to retire. April 1 marked Kile’s 20-year anniversary with the museum. “It’s just the right time to do it,” Kile said. “Things are in place.” The museum announced a capital campaign in 2017 to raise $15 million to build a new, bigger, and better art museum, with a projected groundbreaking in 2019. That target date’s been pushed back to 2022 amid Kile’s departure, economic conditions, and the unexpected resignation of Jeff Al-Mashat, who came on as the project’s capital campaign director in 2016. When complete, SLOMA’s new facility will have triple the space for exhibitions and classrooms and will feature modern lighting, climate control, and security. An elevator will ensure access for all (the current building’s second floor isn’t wheelchair accessible), and an art library will provide a space for scholastic research. The new space will also include a museum store and a cozy tearoom. Best of all, the museum will sit on the same plot of land that SLOMA calls home on Broad Street. Kile plans to stay on as executive director until May 3 and will then serve as director emeritus. Ruta Saliklis, the current curator for the museum, will step into the position of interim executive director until the museum’s board of directors hires someone permanently for the position. In anticipation of Kile’s leaving, the museum hired an assistant curator several months ago to free up Saliklis to serve as interim executive director. Kile said she hopes that Saliklis will stay on as the permanent executive director, but ultimately that decision is up to the board of directors. “She’s the most trained and the most senior staff,” Kile said. Saliklis said it’s too soon to say if she’ll pursue the position, but she didn’t rule it out. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” she said. “It’s the culmination of a museum career, and now I have the chance to prove myself.” Right now it’s unclear how long the hiring process will take, but in the meantime, Saliklis will serve as both curator and interim executive director. Along with the new building, Saliklis hopes to bring in a few more new changes, such as game nights and other events

to appeal to the 30-something crowd so people might see the museum as a place for fun. “We’ve got tremendous community support,” Saliklis said. “We’re keen on trying to raise the bar and do things that are relevant to the younger generation.” As director emeritus, Kile said she can always help the museum staff with its goals as needed. “We’ve got the best corner on the planet for this museum,” Kile said. “I just hope it goes on as strong as can be. I want to see it happen.” Δ Have a scoop on a local arts story? Contact Arts Writer Ryah Cooley at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

evin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer (Holidays, Starry Eyes, Absence) co-direct this new adaptation of the Stephen King novel about a supernatural burial ground. When Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) and his wife, Rachel (Amy Seimetz), move from Boston to rural Maine with their two children, they soon discover something weird is going on in the forest near their home. (101 min.) Glen I sure wish movies could still scare me. I remember being freaked out as a kid, my imagination run amok, but I don’t believe in the occult, so these days, horror movies never horrify me. That said, there are some creepy moments in this second adaptation of King’s Pet Sematary, a few good jump scares, and some good acting and directing. But as far as delivering real chills, nope. Nada. The whole point of the story is the mystery of what lies beyond this mortal coil. Rachel, whose sister died young, wants to shield her daughter, Ellie (Jeté Lawrence), from the thought of death and talks about heaven, but Louis thinks making up stories about an afterlife is wrong and states matterof-factly that nothing exists after death. When Ellie’s cat, Church, is hit by a truck, their neighbor, Jud (John Lithgow), helps Louis bury the animal in a special plot of land, and the next day Church magically reappears. He’s a bit tattered, worse for wear, and more importantly, he does not act like the same cat. But Jud and Louis think they’ve saved Ellie from the pain of death. If you know anything about King, you know it’s just a matter of time before someone precious dies, and someone has the bright idea to plant that someone in the resurrecting ground. “They don’t come back the same,” Jud ominously intones. He’s right. Unfortunately, raising the dead isn’t as exciting or scary as it sounds. The film’s watchable but not exceptionally so, and many viewers will know the story from either the book or the 1989 film of the same name—for which King wrote the screenplay, so it’s predictable. For their part, directors Kölsch and Widmyer and writers Matt Greenberg and Jeff Buhler mix up the story a bit, so even if you know King’s tale, there are a few surprises to be had. But fundamentally it’s the same idea: We don’t know what lies beyond life, and we probably shouldn’t know! Anna “Sometimes dead is better” is another of Jud’s ominous warnings, and Louis would have done well to heed his

Things have to get down and dirty in the King universe, and even his “happy” endings leave a wake of death and destruction. I recently re-read the book in anticipation of the film (OK, full disclosure—I listened to the audiobook. Michael C. Hall narrates, and it’s a fantastic way to ingest this bone-chilling tale), and while there are myriad changes to the details, the essence remains the same. Of course, the audiobook was more than 15 hours, while the film clocks in at a little more than an hour and a half—let’s just say a lot of the minutiae gets tossed aside. Even if you aren’t a self-proclaimed “fan” of King’s work, it’s hard to argue that the man doesn’t know how to weave a story like the back of his hand. While this is certainly his tale, I had to make the choice to separate the two works about a quarter of the way into the movie. Otherwise, I was going to sit and stew over why the filmmakers made certain choices and changes to the original storyline. That said, on its own, the film still suffered from predictability, and it also didn’t strike me as especially frightening or horrific. There were a few jump scares here and there, but mostly just dread of the inevitable doom enshrouding the Creed family like a fog. Glen They did seem sort of cursed, didn’t they? Louis, a former emergency room WHAT LIES BEYOND Louis (Jason Clarke) doesn’t believe in an afterlife but soon finds out his beliefs are irrelevant to the strange goings on in the woods behind his new home.

doctor who has taken a job as a college physician, is soon haunted by a college student who was hit by a car, and who Louis couldn’t save. Rachel is haunted by her sister. Their sprawling new property is haunted by a weird burial ground. Their poor kids are in for a real terror ride. Gage (Hugo Lavoie) is too young to know what’s going on, but Ellie definitely wants to go back to Boston. Lawrence is really good in the role. She looks like a young Sissy Spacek, and the script gives her a lot to do, especially in the film’s final third. Clarke as Louis is also good— he’s a man being forced to confront his entrenched beliefs, a rational man who discovers his world is no longer rational. This new adaptation is certainly better than a lot of recent horror films, but it’s nowhere near as good as some inventive new entries into the genre, such as Overlord (2018), A Quiet Place (2018), Hereditary (2018), It Comes at Night (2017), 10 Cloverfield Lane (2017), Get Out (2017), or Us (2019). If you love King or you love horror, spring for a matinee, but I’d be happier paying the rental price. Anna The film does pull off an overall sense of unease, though it doesn’t quite pull off full-on fright. I was impressed all around with Lawrence and Clark, and props to Seimetz as a haunted and protective Rachel. Lithgow held his own as Jud, though one plot point I missed in the book-to-movie transition is the development of this character, and especially his relationship with the Creed family, Louis in particular. Because this is a tale that has been woven not only in its original form but in film once before, the outcome will be doubtfully surprising to most audiences. While it does take on a life of its own, fundamentally we are left with the same tale—nothing good comes from trying to play God. It seems historically tough to translate a King story onto the big screen without losing a lot of nuance; after all, his novels are generally bookshelf benders filled with page after page of descriptive passages. I’ll agree that for fans of horror this may be worth a matinee, but don’t expect to be especially spooked. If you want the real experience without committing to a book, get the audiobook version like I did and enjoy the ride. Otherwise, wait for this one to hit your home screen. It’s got atmosphere but lacks the spark that makes for a real tale of terror. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

THE BEST OF ENEMIES

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy Writer-director Robin Bissell adapts Osha Gray Davidson’s biographical book about civil rights activist Ann Atwater’s (Taraji P. Henson) fight with KKK leader C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell) over school integration in 1971 Durham, North Carolina. The two are enlisted to participate in a multi-racial charrette, a meeting in which all stakeholders try to resolve conflicts and map solutions, to decide on integration of local public schools—something the black community demands but that many in the white community vehemently oppose. The film’s big message is that ignorance breeds distrust, and ignorance can’t be overcome by segregation and the lack of interaction it causes. Charrette leader Bill Riddick (Babou Ceesay) knows this, which is why he elects Atwater and Ellis co-chairs, forcing them to sit together and talk. Likewise, during lunch breaks, Riddick creates assigned seating in the cafeteria, interspersing black and white participants and telling them they’re not to talk about the focus of the charrette during lunch. Instead, they simply need to get to know one another. This emotionally overwrought tearjerker is undeniably appealing, but it’s also a bit too easy, and it’s so busy making us sympathize with KKK leader Ellis that you almost forget the black community is the aggrieved party here. One night, we witness Ellis and his two closest Klan stooges—Floyd Kelly (Wes Bentley) and Wiley Yates (Nicholas Logan)—shoot out the windows of the home of a white woman dating a black man; the next day, we see him visiting his developmentally disabled adult son, Larry (Kevin Iannucci). Hey look, he has a heart! We discover that Ellis, poor and uneducated, found a home in the Klan. It made him feel like he was a part of something bigger, that he had a purpose. That racists prey on the ignorant and insecure is no secret, but their irrational hatred of blacks and Jews is nearly whitewashed over in service to this feelgood story. There are enough side plots to keep the film interesting. One white liberal member of the charrette is local hardware store owner Lee Trombley (John Gallagher Jr.), who has an all-black staff. His progressive thinking is anathema to Ellis, but when Ellis learns Trombley is a Vietnam War vet and that his black store manager served with him, he softens his stance. Both Rockwell and Henson are terrific in their roles. If you saw Rockwell as the racist deputy Dixon in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017), you know how subtly he can balance racism and humanism. Henson plays Atwater with a maternal fierceness. She won’t stand for injustice. This is based on a true story, and during the closing credits we even get archival footage of the principal players talking about their experiences in the charrette and the lifelong friendship that followed. Yes, the story’s whitewashed and aimed at a white liberal audience, so some cynical reviewers are panning the film for being too obvious, but ignore them. This is an entertaining story and a reminder that hatred can be reversed. (95 min.) —Glen

about your imperfections (the movie’s, not the elephant’s!). It’s hard to hold back tears when the song “Baby Mine” starts playing, as baby Dumbo extends his trunk to reach the barred window of his mother’s cage. The separation of the titular elephant and his mother is at the heart of both the 1941 animated original and this live-action remake from appropriate director Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish, Alice in Wonderland). Unlike the original, however, this story centers on brand-new human characters rather than anthropomorphized animals. So don’t expect to see anything on all fours talking, contrary to other recent Disney remakes like The Jungle Book and the upcoming Lion King. Timothy Q. Mouse still makes a fun cameo appearance, but his role as Dumbo’s friend and protector gets transferred over to two human children, Milly and her brother, Joe. The siblings try to convince their father, Holt, that Dumbo has the ability to fly. Of course, he scoffs at the fantastical notion, but can we really blame him? He is a dad in a Disney movie, after all. And as every good Disney parent knows, the first rule of parenting is: Never believe your children, especially when it comes to the supernatural. Second rule: Apologize to them later for not believing after the big “I told you so” moment. Hiring one of the screenwriters behind three consecutive Transformers movies, Ehren Kruger, to adapt a cartoon about a baby elephant was a bold move. I’d love to have seen this CGI version of Dumbo take down some Decepticons. It’s a really mixed bag, but I still feel like it’s worth seeing on the big screen. There’s enough visual majesty to warrant a theater viewing, despite a thin screenplay. I’ll probably check out the Blu-ray, too, when it comes out, just in case there’s a deleted scene of Dumbo transforming into a Fiat convertible before duking it out with Megatron and Starscream. Move over Optimus Prime, there’s an elephant in the room, and his name is Dumbo. (112 min.) —Caleb Wiseblood

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Full price Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Fair Oaks, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Horror director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation) successfully steps out of his comfort zone to helm this superhero fantasy about 14-year-old foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to inherit magical powers from a dying wizard (Djimon Hounsou). All Batson needs to do is say the magic word—the wizard’s name, Shazam!—to transform into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi) with super strength, flight, and other abilities. Still a kid at heart, the hero— or “champion” as the wizard refers to him— revels in his new powers, testing them out with his foster brother, Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer), the first person Batson trusts with his secret. Meanwhile, the insidious Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong), a mad scientist who dedicated his life to finding the original Shazam, seeks to hunt down Batson in order to extract his powers and adopt them himself. From the trailers, the film looks like Deadpool for kids, but after seeing the final product, I think a more appropriate description would be a cross between Harry Potter and Big for superhero fans. The film opens with an origin for Sivana, cleverly devised to mirror Batson’s origin later; he’s chosen by the same dying wizard as a child decades before. Unfortunately, Sivana fails the wizard’s test when he is tempted by “the Seven Deadly Sins.” The sins are literally represented as physical demonic monsters that play an intricate—and quite terrifying—role in Sivana’s destiny. Sivana is devastated by the wizard’s rejection, who tells him he’ll never be worthy enough to inherit his powers.

Baking obsession Watching The Great British Bake Off can get under your skin and into your oven Get obsessed

F

reshly baked bread hits my nose as soon as I open the door to my house on April 9. It’s unusual considering I live alone, worked all day, and then went to class. But my cousin Parisa Amini has been staying with me for the last couple of weeks, and she’s become obsessed with baking. I know why, too, because I’ve been there. The Great British Bake Off (also known as The Great British Baking Show) got under her skin, into her head, and compelled her to do something about it. Parisa has watched four seasons since she’s been at my house, and I’m the one who gets to reap all of the benefits. In the past week, I’ve come home to freshly baked banana bread, an apple tart that most definitely did not have a soggy bottom, French rolls, and bread that looks like focaccia but apparently isn’t. “It’s fougasse,” she corrects me. So instead of snacking on some crappy chips that are in my cupboard, I’m ripping a piece of freshly baked fougasse off one of the loaves she slaved over today. “You should have smelled it when it was cooking,” she says. “But oh well.” Oh well indeed, but I’m not complaining. Her apple tart was divine. My younger cousin knows a lot about baking—pies, especially. She walked me through the tips she’s got tucked away in her mind for making a nice flaky pie crust, which is butter, flour, and water (sometimes a pinch of sugar and/or salt, too). Everything has to be cold. Some people freeze butter and then grate it, because if the butter is too warm, it will seep out of the dough as it’s baking. Then, you won’t get that flaky texture. “Duly noted,” I think. “That’s why my quiche had a soggy bottom.” I also went on a bit of a baking spree during my obsession with the Great British Bake Off about a year ago. And while Parisa seems to be nailing her bakes, I was mediocre at best. Those of you who have felt the pull of the Great British Bake Off are probably with me, but the rest of you might be wondering what the hell I’m talking about. So I’ll give you a quick explainer: The Brits created a fabulous show all about baking—tarts, pies, cakes, breads, biscuits, rolls, amuse-bouche, merengue, petit fours, the list is endless, honestly (and it’s a little hard to believe). It’s a reality TV show that starred celebrity British bakers Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry in the first few seasons (Prue Leith is now Hollywood’s co-host) where amateur bakers from around the U.K. face off in a series of challenges until they get kicked off the show, one-by-one. “Everyone is so encouraging of everyone

else on that show, and You can star on your own reality show by attempting to bake after it’s just so nice to see binge-watching one of the most that,” Parisa says. “A wholesome reality TV shows ever, lot of American reality The Great British Bake Off, aka The shows are about creating Great British Baking Show. Search villains and watching out recipes used in the episodes by visiting the BBC or PBS online. people argue. It’s just such a wholesome show.

for you to salivate over. Efren’s of Oceano fame finally brought their famously delicious traditional Mexican food to a spot in San Luis Obispo. I’ll take some homemade sopes with carne asada and green sauce or a gigantic Torta Efren’s with asada, carnitas, pastor, and a pile of beans, onions, cilantro, red sauce, and guacamole. And I’ll take it with a michelada, thank you very much (1285 Laurel Lane; visit efrensmexicanrestaurant.com to salivate over your options) ... The Colony Market and Deli opened to a warm welcome in Atascadero, selling sandos, beer, wine, and good times to residents who’ve been watching the old gas station on the corner of El Camino and Traffic Way transform over the past few months. Colony Market is hawking drool-worthy deli fare with a gourmet twist, like The Kluck, which is buttermilk fried chicken with jalepeño coleslaw on a brioche bun, or the P-P-Porchetta, which is slowroasted pork shoulder, stuffed with rosemary, fennel seed, thyme, and garlic with walnut gremolata, lemon caper sauce, and pickled fennel on ciabatta. You can add a side of duck fat fries to that order and be feeling pretty stuffed and sassy by the end of the meal (6040 El Camino Real; the deli’s open Sunday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.). ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham likes fries with her duck fat.

Tots and taters

After a harrowing drive on a road you’re not quite sure your very low-clearance Toyota Matrix is going to make it up or down, there’s something satisfying about sitting down at a picnic table in the shade of an umbrella as the adrenaline leaves your system. (Yes, I’m speaking from experience—and yes, it was FUN, even though I lost part of my bumper!) We pulled into the historic Pozo Saloon around 3:30 p.m. on a Sunday and were ready for some barbecue. Grabbing a jar of Pozo Martini (beer and olives, why would you want anything else?) and looking over the menu, I ordered a BBQ Yard-Bird Sandwich with barbecue sauce. My friends ordered burgers and tri-tip and some starters for the table: regular tater tots and chili-style tater tots. Because tater tots are back, according to one of my friends. It’s hard to understand why they ever went anywhere in the first place. Grated potatoes packed into a little nugget and then fried to perfection. Crunchy and a little bit greasy with the right seasoning salt. For some reason, the tots were better than my sandwich. And the chili-style tots, although they got soggy quickly, were also tasty: Pozo chili, cheese, onions, sour cream, jalepeños, and salsa. Tater tots are $4 or you can get them chili style for $10 at the Pozo Saloon, 90 Pozo Road in Santa Margarita. The saloon is open Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham knows there’s nothing wrong with a little adventure. Send comments to clanham@newtimesslo.com.

Join Our Team! New Times is looking for its next FLAVOR writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, press release-reading, food-eating, wine-drinking someone. We’re looking for that certain someone who can see the nuances that make a chef, farmer, or winemaker special—a writer who can tease the most out of an interview, a bite of food, or a sip of liquid. Someone who not only knows food, but cares about the people making it and where they came from. FLAVOR is about more than food and drink. It’s about understanding the work that goes into producing and participating in the chain that leads to your table and into your mouth—and being able to put that on paper in a way that’s meaningful to our readers.

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

NOTICE OF TENTATIVE ACTION / PUBLIC HEARING WHO County of San Luis Obispo Planning Department Hearing

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA, ADVANCING THE FORMATION OF THE SAN LUIS RANCH COMMUNITY FACILITIES DISTRICT BY LEVYING SPECIAL TAXES WITHIN THE CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO COMMUNITY FACILITIES DISTRICT NO. 2019-1 (SAN LUIS RANCH) AS REPRESENTED IN THE STAFF REPORT AND ATTACHMENTS DATED APRIL 2, 2019

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of San Luis Obispo, California, at its Regular Meeting of April 2, 2019, introduced the above titled ordinance upon a motion by Council Member Gomez, second by Council Member Christianson, and on the following roll call vote: AYES: Council Members Aaron Gomez, Carlyn Christianson, Erica Stewart, Vice Mayor Andy Pease, and Mayor Heidi Harmon NOES: None Ordinance No. 1661 (2019 Series) - The approved San Luis Ranch Specific Plan allows for a variety of residential and non-residential development on 131 acres located generally between Madonna Road and U.S. Highway 101, south of Dalidio Drive, and is identified by assessor’s parcel number (APN) 067-121-022. The Specific Plan was approved on July 18, 2017. The Development Agreement and an amended Specific Plan that provides the basis for the formation of the Community Facilities District (CFD), was approved by the City Council on July 17, 2018. The owners and developers of the San Luis Ranch property have requested, and the City has agreed, to consider formation of a CFD, as reflected in the San Luis Ranch entitlement documents. On February 19, 2019, the City Council adopted a Resolution of Intention, which is the first step in the process to form a CFD. On April 2, the City Council voted unanimously to introduce an ordinance advancing the formation of the CFD. The ordinance authorizes the levy of a special tax on real property located within the designated boundary of the CFD for a range of purposes including funding reimbursement of investments made by the developer for regional transportation infrastructure and utility improvements. It is common for the special taxes to be used to service municipal bonds issued to fund new development-related infrastructure. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that the City Council of the City of San Luis Obispo will consider adopting the aforementioned Ordinance at its Regular Meeting of April 16, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., which will be held in the Council Chamber, located at 990 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, California. Copies of the complete ordinance are available in the City Clerk’s Office in City Hall and online at www. slocity.org. For more information, contact Michael Codron, 781-7187.

WHEN Friday, May 17, 2019 at 09:00 AM. All items are advertised for 09:00 AM. To verify agenda placement, please call the Department of Planning & Building at (805) 781-5600. WHAT A request by Hans R. Michel/Collins Vineyard Inc. for a Minor Use Permit (DRC2018-00046) to allow for a seasonal/temporary parking area to be used during permitted activities at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre (located within the City of Paso Robles) up to 50 times a year. The parking area will be located on a 5-acre portion of a 79-acre property. The property is owned by Collins Vineyards, Inc. and Vina Robles, Inc. The project will result in 5 acres of site disturbance that will include scraping of the existing dirt and the application of 2”- 4” of rock base. The project is located at 3825 Mill Road, southeast of the Vina Robles event parking area, east of the City of Paso Robles. The project site is located in the El Pomar Estrella Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on April 11, 2019 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Air Quality and Biological Resources and are included as conditions of approval. The Environmental Document is available for public review at the Department of Planning and Building, at the below address. A copy of the Environmental Document is also available on the Planning and Building Department website at www.sloplanning.org. Anyone interested in commenting on the proposed Environmental Document should submit a written statement and/or speak at the public hearing. Comments will be accepted up until completion of the public hearing(s). County File Number: DRC2018-00046 Supervisorial District: District 1 Assessor Parcel Number(s): 026-211-011 Date Accepted: 07/11/2018 WHERE The hearing will be held in the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 1055 Monterey Street, Room #D170, County Government Center, San Luis Obispo, CA. The Board of Supervisors Chambers are located on the corner of Santa Rosa and Monterey Streets. At the meeting all interested persons may express their views for or against, or to change the proposal.

You may also contact Holly Phipps, Project Manager, in the Department of Planning and Building at the address below or by telephone at (805) 781-5600.

An applicant or interested party may request a public hearing on this matter.

ORDINANCE NO. 1662 (2019 Series) AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA, APPROVING THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE AVILA RANCH DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT TO RECOGNIZE THE INTENT OF BOTH THE CITY AND THE DEVELOPER THAT THE PROJECT BE SUBJECT TO FEES INCLUDED IN THE PENDING UPDATE OF THE LOS OSOS VALLEY ROAD FEE PROGRAM, AS REPRESENTED IN THE STAFF REPORT AND ATTACHMENTS DATED APRIL 2, 2019 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of San Luis Obispo, California, at its Regular Meeting of April 2, 2019, introduced the above titled ordinance upon a motion by Council Member Christianson, second by Council Member Gomez, and on the following roll call vote: AYES: Council Members Aaron Gomez, Carlyn Christianson, Erica Stewart, Vice Mayor Andy Pease, and Mayor Heidi Harmon NOES: None Ordinance No. 1662 (2019 Series) - Avila Ranch, LLC has an approved development agreement related to its residential development with up to 720 units on a 150-acre site north of Buckley Road within the boundaries of the Airport Area Specific Plan (“AASP”). The project as approved includes a Development Agreement (DA) and is envisioned to implement the policies and development parameters as articulated in the 2014 Land Use and Circulation Elements (LUCE) update. An amendment to the Development Agreement has been approved to address a delay in the completion of an update to the Los Osos Valley Road (LOVR) Interchange Impact Add-On Fee. The City had committed to updating this fee program to reflect the land uses within the Avila Ranch project and changes to other land uses contemplated within the fee program area. Avila Ranch is now ready to record the first phase of its Final Map for the subdivision, however, according to the DA doing so would lock fees in place at their current amounts. Because the current fee structure does not accurately reflect the land uses in the Avila Ranch project, an update to the DA to allow for this fee to be updated in the future is necessary. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that the City Council of the City of San Luis Obispo will consider adopting the aforementioned Ordinance at its Regular Meeting of April 16, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., which will be held in the Council Chamber, located at 990 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, California. Copies of the complete ordinance are available in the City Clerk’s Office in City Hall and online at www. slocity.org. For more information, contact Michael Codron, 781-7187.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: What other sign would you want to be if you could take a vacation from your actual sign? Why? Write freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): The Qing Dynasty controlled China from the mid-17th century to the early 20th century. It was the fifth biggest empire in world history. But eventually it faded, as all mighty regimes do. Revolution came in 1911, forcing the last emperor to abdicate and giving birth to the Republic of China. I’m inclined to think of your life in 2019 as having some similarities to that transition. It’s the end of one era and the beginning of another, a changing of the guard and a passing of the torch. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to be very active in deciding and visualizing the empire you want next.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Love is no assignment for cowards.” That’s a quote attributed to the ancient Roman poet Ovid. What did he mean? Was he foreshadowing the wisdom of pop singer Pat Benatar, who in 1983 told us, “Love is a battlefield”? Was Ovid implying that to succeed in the amorous arts we must be heroic warriors prepared to overcome fears and risk psychological dangers? Probably. But I will also point out that it takes as much courage to create fun, interesting togetherness as it does to wrestle with the problems that togetherness brings. You need just as much bravura and panache to explore the sweet mysteries of intimacy as you do to explore the achy mysteries of intimacy. Keep these thoughts in mind as you marshal your audacity to deepen and expand your best relationships in the coming weeks.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20): I hope that sometime soon you’ll acquire a new source of support or inspiration. Now is a phase of your astrological cycle when you’re likely to attract influences that are in alignment with your deep values. This addition might be a person or animal. It could be a vibrant symbol or useful NEW FILE NO. 2019-0678 tool.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Poet David Hinton analyzed the Chinese word for “poetry.” Its etymological meaning is “words spoken at the fertility altar.” Let’s make that your theme, even if you don’t write or read poetry. I suspect the coming weeks will be a favorable time to take a vow or utter a solemn intention in front of a homemade fertility altar. The oath you speak might express a desire to boost your use of your physical vitality: your lust for life, your adoration of the natural world, or your power to produce new human life. Or your vow to foster your fertility could be more metaphorical and symbolic in nature: the imaginative intimacy you will explore or the creativity you’ll express in future works of art or the generous effects you want to have on the world.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Christopher Robin Milne was the son of author A. A. Milne, who wrote the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. He said there are two ways to navigate through life. Either you “take a bearing on something in the future and steer towards it, or take a bearing on something in the past and steer away from it.” So in his view, “There are those who look ahead and pull and those who look behind and push.” I’m hoping that in the coming weeks and months, you will make a delighted commitment to the first option: taking a bearing on something in the future and steering toward it. I think that approach will inspire you toward the most interesting success.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The national animal of Finland is the brown bear. The national insect is the ladybug, and the national instrument is a stringed instrument known as the kantele. As for the national author, it’s Aleksis Kivi, who produced just one novel that took him 10 years to write. He also published a short collection of odes and a few plays, adding up to a grand total of less than 800 pages of work. I think that the efforts you make in the coming weeks could have a disproportionately large impact, as well, Leo. What you lack in quantity will be irrelevant compared to the sheer quality you generate.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I follow the blogger Evanescent Voyager because she makes me cry with sad joy and exultant poignance on a regular basis. One of her other fans wrote her a love note I could have written myself. It said, “Your emotional brilliance and thoughtful passion break me into pieces and then weave me back together with more coherence than I had before reading you. I revere your alchemical talent for undoing me so you can heal me; for lowering my defenses so I can be open to your riches; for demolishing my habitual trance so you can awaken my sleeping genius.” I believe that in the coming weeks, life itself will offer to perform these same services for you, Virgo. I urge you to accept!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The literal meaning of the French term jolie-laide is “pretty and ugly.” Bloggers at wordsnquotes. com define it as follows: “It’s a fascinating quirkiness that’s irresistible, like a face you want to keep looking at even if you can’t decide whether it is beautiful or not.” Jolie-laide overlaps with the Japanese term wabi-sabi, which describes a person or thing that is lovely because of its imperfection and incompleteness. I bring these facts to your attention because I think you have extraordinary potential to be a master embodier of both jolie-laide and wabi-sabi in the coming weeks.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As Czech playwright Vaclav Havel (1936–2011) matured, he became a political dissident who opposed the Soviet Union’s authoritarian grip on his country. Eventually he was a key player in the Velvet Revolution that banished Communism. When Czechoslovakia emerged as a new democracy, its people elected him president. Havel later thanked Lou Reed and the band the Velvet Underground for fully awakening his liberationist leadership. He said their unruly music stoked his longing to establish a culture where total creative freedom was possible. I mention this, Sagittarius, because now is a favorable time to identify the music or art or films or literature that might fuel your emancipation in the coming months.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author J.R.R. Tolkien toiled on his masterpiece The Lord of the Rings for 12 years. Once he finished, it wasn’t published for more than five years. So 17 years passed between the time he launched his precious project and the time when it reached an audience. I don’t think you will need that much patience in shepherding your own venture to full expression, Capricorn. But I hope you’ll summon as much faith in yourself as Tolkien had to rouse in himself. To do so will bring out the best in you!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Released in 1998, The Prince of Egypt is an animated film that tells the story of the Hebrew prophet Moses. In the climactic event, the hero uses magic to part the waters of the Red Sea, allowing his people to run across the sea floor and escape the army that’s chasing them. To make that seven-minute scene, 28 professional animators labored for 318,000 hours. In the coming months, you could create your own version of that marvel, Aquarius. But you’ll need a team to help you, and that team is not yet ready to go. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to get it ready, though.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean businessman Steve Jobs testified that taking LSD was “one of the two or three most important things” he ever did in his life. It opened his mind in ways he felt were crucial to his development. What are the three most important things you’ve ever done, Pisces? I invite you to revisit at least one of them, and see if you can take it to the next step of its power to inspire you. What if it has even more to offer you in your efforts to become the person you want to be? ∆
