Cal Poly community outraged after blackface photo goes viral

PHOTO BY PETER JOHNSON

A

widely shared photo of a Cal Poly Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity member in blackface on April 7 continues to rock the community, sparking national news coverage and strong condemnation from administrators and students. Posted to social media, the photo shows a Cal Poly student at the April 7 fraternity event with his face painted black while wearing a black shirt and a black beanie. Called blackface, the activity is rooted in racial oppression, historically used among Caucasian people to caricature African-Americans in theater and performance. After the initial photo spread online, Lambda Chi Alpha issued a statement to the Mustang News on April 8 where it “sincerely apologize[d] for any harm caused.” The group explained the member in blackface as related to “a competition between teams in which each team was represented by a different color ... similar to high school spirit rallies.” But soon after, a second photo from the event surfaced showing several fraternity members donning bandanas and fake tattoos with the caption, “She want a gangster not a pretty boy.” That photo drew further scrutiny from the community as evidence the frat party was racially themed. The incident coincided with PolyCultural Weekend, where prospective students visit the Cal Poly campus to be introduced to various multi-cultural organizations. On April 9, Cal Poly placed Lambda Chi Alpha on interim suspension as it investigates whether the event constituted “a violation of university policy,” according to Cal Poly Spokesman Matt Lazier. An interim suspension means the fraternity is temporarily barred from holding any events and activities. Hundreds of Cal Poly students packed a campus lecture hall the evening of April 9 for an “emergency town hall meeting.” Every seat was filled, and students sat together on the floor while latecomers spilled out the door into the hallways.

UNITED FOR CHANGE Hundreds of Cal Poly students gathered for an emergency town hall meeting on April 9 after photos surfaced over the weekend of a Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity member in blackface.

Taking turns, students—mostly students of color—stood up and spoke with raw emotion about the incident and their longstanding frustrations with what was described as a hostile climate for minority students at Cal Poly. Many demanded consequences for the fraternity. “This event is really inexcusable. They’re college students. They could’ve looked this up. They should’ve known, honestly,” one student said. “And I haven’t seen Cal Poly do shit. All they keep saying is ‘sorry.’ I’m really tired of ‘sorry.’ This is the time for action.” Second year student Leilani Hemmings read aloud a statement on behalf of the Cal Poly Black Student Union. “We are appalled by and adamantly condemn the actions of Lambda Chi Alpha,” Hemmings said. “Particularly alongside PolyCultural Weekend, this incident perpetuates the longstanding question of what work Cal Poly SLO is doing to support the admission and even more importantly, retention of marginalized students.” Students expressed frustration at the school administration for delaying discipline of Lambda Chi Alpha, feeling like the photos were

strong enough evidence of misconduct. “There’s no [need for an] investigation,” one student said. “An investigation is when you don’t know shit. You know what they did, so you don’t need to investigate anything. You need to kick their asses off campus.” Others pointed out that it’s not the first time the Cal Poly Greek community has engaged in racial or cultural insensitivity. In 2013, Greek organizations held a “Colonial Bros and Navaho’s”-themed party that drew criticism. “This continuously happens. Nothing has changed,” a student said. Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong issued a statement to the campus community on April 9 condemning the party. “Like many of you, I have seen the images that circulated on social media and find them to be painful and embarrassing,” Armstrong’s statement read. “Hurtful actions, be they intentional or otherwise, have no place at our university and yet, regrettably, we experience them. ... They must stop. ... The responsibility for change lies with every one of us at this university.” Δ —Peter Johnson

was appointed as the conservator of Charles’ estate on Jan. 12. As part of the case, Eddie raised concerns about Borba’s handling of Charles’ finances. Court documents reference large amounts of money being moved between three bank accounts set up outside of the trust created for the lotto winnings. October 2017 bank statements filed as part of the court case show the transfer of $10,000 from one account in Charles’ name to another. That second account, also in Charles’ name, showed more than $8,721 in funds were withdrawn or debited in a 30-day period. A third account in both Charles’ and Borba’s name showed a balance of more than $92,000 between September and October 2017, with withdrawals totaling $3,510 for the same period. Herbert Stroh, an attorney who represented Charles, also raised concerns about the accounts in a January court filing seeking to compel Borba to turn over accounting documents. Stroh’s review of bank statements from some of the accounts showed “significant ATM cash withdrawals,” according to the filing. “There are significant outflows of large dollar

The unlicensed caregiver of elderly lotto millionaire Charles Hairston no longer has control over the 88-year-old Paso Robles resident’s fortune or his medical care. A SLO County Superior Court judge revoked Tiffany Borba’s power of attorney as part of a contentious conservatorship case and appointed a third party to manage what’s left of the $78 million lottery award Charles won in 2011, according to court records. Charles asked Borba, whom he reportedly met while she was working at Scolari’s Market in Paso Robles, to be his caregiver in 2012, and signed over power of attorney to her in 2015. He spent some of his winnings on gifts for Borba, including the purchase of a $819,000 home and a 2016 Porsche. Charles’ nephew Eddie Hairston initiated court proceedings to appoint a conservator for Charles in 2017, claiming that Borba failed to properly take care of him, isolated him from family and friends, and took advantage of him for financial gain. Court records show that Debora Trout, a licensed professional fiduciary,

amounts during 2017,” he wrote. Eddie’s attorney, Brighton HushingKline, said that the money in those accounts came from the lotto winnings trust, and questioned how much of the withdrawn money was used to pay for expenses related to Charles’ care. He believes that Borba used it for her own day-to-day expenses. “We’ve have long been suspicious of potential mismanagement,” HushingKline said. “She’s not provided any explanation whatsoever.” In a written declaration submitted as part of the case, Borba denied allegations that she mistreated Charles. Meanwhile, she has enlisted the services of the Irvinebased law firm of Wallin and Klarich. Attorney Greg Balderrama confirmed that Borba was a client, but said it was not in relation to the conservatorship case. “We are representing her in a very limited capacity,” he said. Balderrama declined to comment further on why he’s representing Borba, but a March 26 letter to Eddie stated that Balderrama’s firm was retained to represent Borba in a “pre-filing criminal investigation.” According to the firm’s website, a pre-filing investigation “generally involves a law enforcement agency analyzing and scrutinizing the facts of your case to determine whether the police agency can recommend that prosecutors file charges against you.” As of April 5, both the Paso Robles Police Department and the SLO County District Attorney’s Office said they were not conducting any criminal investigations involving Borba. —Chris McGuinness

New firm to oversee Morro Bay water facility

The Morro Bay City Council awarded Carollo Engineers a $7.6 million contract to manage the controversial Water Reclamation Facility Project. Rob Livick, director of Public Works, said the majority of the residents who attended the April 10 meeting were opposed to what council members decided. “I would say most of the speakers were against hiring a new program manager, mainly on a cost basis,” Livick said. The $7.6 million is on top of the projected $150 million cost of the project and the estimated $200,000 to $300,000 that will be spent on the proposed project site—near the intersection of South Bay

VIEWER DISCRETION Boulevard and Highway 1. The California-based Carollo engineering firm specializes in planning, designing, and construction management of water and wastewater facilities for municipalities. “Carollo Engineers will be the new program manager, and they will work with our existing technical team. Their first order of business is to work on an integration plan,” Livick said. The plan will help ensure that Carollo picks things up where the previous program manager, MKN, stopped. The firm has worked with many cities and districts in the state; locally it provided services to the Los Osos Wastewater Treatment Plant. It aided Los Osos in the feasibility-level planning and preliminary design for its wastewater project. “They’re probably the firm in California with the most experience with indirect/ direct potable reuse projects,” Livick said. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to diversify the city’s water portfolio and maintain water security for the community.” Carollo Engineers will manage the design-building program for the project. This method involves both engineers and contractors to create a proposal project that has a guaranteed maximum price. “That expertise to manage that tens of millions of dollars project and stay on schedule, because that’s where projects tend to go over budget. The more time you have, the more money you spend,” he said. —Karen Garcia

Lawsuit claims Lucia Mar failed to report alleged molestation

The family of a 10-year-old girl with special needs said they tried to report that a school bus driver had molested their daughter multiple times but that Lucia Mar Unified School District officials ignored them and failed to report the abuse. A recently filed lawsuit claims the girl’s parents complained to district and school administrators, who failed to take action to stop the alleged abuse. The suit claims the district did not report the allegations to police despite having access to GPS tracking data and video surveillance footage with evidence that the driver, 49-year-old David Lamb, sexually abused the girl several times over a five-month period. The lawsuit was filed against Lamb, the Lucia Mar district, and the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education. “The school district and office of education engaged in despicable conduct,” lead counsel Dave Ring, the family’s

attorney, said in an April 10 statement. According to the lawsuit, the abuse began in January 2017 when the girl, then 9 years old, was transferred to the Chris Jespersen School in SLO, putting her alone on a bus with Lamb. He allegedly began engaging in inappropriate behavior with the girl, showing her “graphic and violent videos.” At an April 10, 2018, press conference, Ring released an edited clip of surveillance footage from the bus that he believes shows Lamb molesting the girl. The video, taken April 7, 2017, shows Lamb appearing to ask the girl to move to a seat out of view of the camera, which she does. Lamb then stops the bus and moves to the area where the girl is sitting. Lamb’s arm and shoulder are the only visible parts of his body, and they appear to move and shake. The edited footage ends with Lamb standing up and walking back to the driver’s seat. “These movements, in conjunction with everything else, clearly demonstrated that Lamb was engaging in sexual abuse of the plaintiff,” the lawsuit states. The lawsuit claims that on April 10 district officials were notified that Lamb had been showing the girl explicit videos and that she said he “touched her private area.” A supervisor for the district’s transportation department allegedly told the girl’s parents that she reviewed the bus footage and did not see Lamb engage in appropriate behavior, and thus Lamb was allowed to remain her bus driver. In May, the girl again told her parents that Lamb had sexually abused her on numerous occasions on the bus, and threatened to “do something bad” to her if

she told anyone, the lawsuit states. During a May 24 meeting with multiple officials from Jespersen, the Lucia Mar district, and the SLO County Office of Education, the girl’s parents once again tried to report the abuse, but no action was taken, according to the lawsuit. Shortly after that meeting, the parents contacted the SLO County Sheriff’s Department. Lamb was arrested on June 7, after he allegedly admitted to sheriff’s investigators that he sexually abused the girl. At the press conference, Ring displayed statements that Lamb allegedly made in the interview, including that he exposed himself to the girl, and put his genitals near her face and let her touch them. In June 2017, the SLO County District Attorney’s Office filed seven felony charges against the bus driver, including committing a forcible lewd act upon a child. He pleaded not guilty to all the charges, and his case remains ongoing in SLO County Superior Court. The family’s lawsuit charges the district and the county education office with neglect, breach of duty, and a failure to follow state law that requires school districts and their employees to report suspected child abuse to the police. A written response from Lucia Mar Superintendent Raynee Daley said that student privacy and due process laws prevented the district from commenting on the specifics of the case. “Since we first became aware of the charges of child sexual abuse by this bus driver, we have cooperated very closely with the family and law enforcement as the investigation moved forward,” Daley said.

Too high? Tax rates on cannabis are being reconsidered before the local industry even opens its doors

I

n November 2016, voters in Grover Beach passed a measure to tax commercial cannabis businesses. The approval made the city the first in San Luis Obispo County to pass a tax on what many believe will be a lucrative industry. But a year and a half later, Grover Beach’s elected officials are already mulling lowering them, citing fears that high rates will drive cannabis-related businesses to other cities. “I certainly don’t want to overtax people if we can help it,â€? Mayor John Shoals told members of the Grover Beach City Council during an April 2 discussion on the issue. Currently, commercial medical marijuana businesses in Grover Beach will pay a 5 percent gross receipts tax, while non-medical cannabis businesses pay 10 percent. Cultivation and nursery operations must pay $25 per square foot for the first 5,000 square feet, and $10 per square foot for any more space beyond that. The city’s taxes come on top of California’s 15 percent excise tax on all cannabis sold in the state. Cultivators must also pay a state tax of $9.25 per dry weight ounce of flower and $2.75 per dry weight ounce for leaves. “In the industry, we are already facing high taxes at the state ‌ we believe the rates should be competitive,â€? Ali Cooper, vice president of government relations for Natural Healing Center, told the council. Natural Healing Center is one of four dispensaries permitted to operate in Grover Beach. Cooper urged the council to consider lowering its tax rates, suggesting a rate that started as low as 2 percent and gradually increased over time. The discussion comes as other local governments are crafting their own tax measures, many with rates that are lower than Grover Beach’s. SLO County’s proposed rate, set to go before voters for approval in June, will start at 4 percent on gross receipts, and will automatically increase by 2 percent each year beginning in 2020 up to 10 percent. The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors approved a measure that, if passed by voters in June, would tax cannabis retailers at 6 percent, cultivators at 4 percent, and 1 percent for nursery and distribution operations. Local cities like SLO and Morro Bay are also considering their own commercial cannabis tax measures, which could go before voters in November. Lower rates elsewhere could lure investors like Kevin Galvin away from Grover Beach. He told council members on April 2 that he was looking for property to open a manufacturing facility. “People like myself will view that in a competitive environment and make a decision that is best for our businesses,â€? he said. But not everyone is so eager to see Grover Beach lower the newly passed taxes. Resident Anthony Embrey said

805-546-8208 THE TAX MAN COMETH After welcoming cannabis businesses, cities like Grover Beach must now wrestle with just how much to tax the new industry.

that the businesses that already applied for permits were aware of the city’s rates. “Everyone knew the tax schedule before they applied. Everyone knew the rules before they applied,� he said. “Now that you’ve let them in, they want you to amend it in their favor.� When the city pitched the tax to voters, it estimated that the measure could generate between $1 million and $2 million in revenue annually. During the recent discussion, Shoals voiced concerns about reneging on that promise. “I’m not about to go and do a bait and switch on the folks who live in this community and vote in this community,� he said. Still, Shoals and the rest of the council advised city staff to explore lowering the tax rates, including decreasing the tax to 4 or 5 percent for retail businesses, lowering the rate to 2 or 3 percent for manufacturing and distribution businesses, and slashing the cultivation tax to $5 per square foot. The city wouldn’t need voters to approve lower tax rates. While Grover Beach considers its next move, the cannabis industry may also get a break from the state’s taxes. In February, state Assembly members Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale) and Rob Bonta (D-Alameda) introduced a bill that would lower the state excise tax to 11 percent and suspend the tax on cultivation. The bill is currently being reviewed by the Assembly’s tax and revenue committee. ∆ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

omen gathered beneath the barely visibly full moon, swathed in a layer of fog on the night of March 31. Sitting in a circle on colorful blankets, candlelight danced across 20 or so faces that dipped between shadows and the glow of flames. They laughed and talked, sipping red wine and new moon tea with nettle leaf, preparing to harness the power of the new blue moon and spring season. Smoke swirled around Shelby Bundy, who held a burning bundle of sage. She spoke about purifying the space and tools, as well as the reason for this full moon gathering on the pavement behind her shop in Arroyo Grande—Tamed Wild Apothecary. “It’s a good way to check in with what we’re looking for, what it is we’re wanting

to let go of, and to honor the women who came before us,” Bundy said. One by one, each woman filled a bowl with water, herbs like chrysanthemum and holy basil, a chicken feather, and a lit floating blue candle to symbolize all four of the elements. While holding a turquoisecolored agate stone egg, they thought of what they wanted to bring into their life. Placing the oblong gem in the water alongside a piece of light pink rose quartz, they wrote their intention on a scrap of paper and let it burn, watching as the ashes sank to the bottom of the bowl. Angela Kendrick of Arroyo Grande attended her first Tamed Wild full moon ritual in January while working through a time of loss. She already had an affinity for crystals, and that winter night, they talked about letting things go and buried sage outside. “My father had just passed away the night before,” Kendrick said. “It was a great place to be in a positive environment. It was very peaceful” These women are just a few of many who have been called to the light of the full moon, to take their power back into their own hands in a divisive and turbulent time in the country following the 2016 presidential election. Witches. Magic. Wiccan. Pagan. Faith. Bundy isn’t too attached to labels, simply preferring to bundle WITCHY WOMAN Shelby Bundy, owner of Tamed Wild Apothecary in Arroyo Grande, demonstrates how to sage the herbs, crystals, and and purify oneself during a full moon ritual. tarot cards that her store stocks under the term, 10 • New Times • April 12 - April 19, 2018 • www.newtimesslo.com

“Earth-based spirituality.” Regardless of what you call it, though, the spirituality resonates with women near and far. After opening her shop about a year ago, Bundy decided to start offering monthly subscription boxes to get her products out in the world. At first, herbs, crystals, and ritual magic were shipped to about 20 subscribers. Now, Bundy and her team of 14 employees ship boxes to 6,000 people each month across the nation and globe. With a fulfillment center in the United Kingdom and a new warehouse in Atascadero, Tamed Wild’s smudge kits, along with crystals, herbs, and moon card decks are also sold at Urban Outfitters across the country. “It’s kind of broad and it’s for anybody,” Bundy said. “There are a lot of different spiritual paths and lifestyles, even that are based in old world tradition be it pagan, Wiccan. It’s for people that are looking to the Earth as a whole for spirituality, for medicine, for guidance.”

From the Earth

Raised by Southern Baptist parents in Lodi in California’s Central Valley, Bundy never thought her future job would include talking about finding the right goddess to identify with, and now her desk at Tamed Wild’s warehouse in Atascadero sports the title, “Boss Witch,” in gold, loopy letters. “This whole thing was a big no-no,” Bundy said. Then a few years ago, her daughter was having trouble at school and Bundy was told she likely had ADD (attention deficit disorder). She wasn’t so sure about the diagnosis, but Bundy knew she didn’t want to give her daughter traditional medicine. “I started looking for alternatives and that’s how I fell into the herbs. I started making her teas and tinctures and tonics,” Bundy said. She would whip up combinations of calming herbs like skullcap and lavender for when her daughter was

having hyper days. It turned out Bundy’s daughter didn’t have ADD at all. She was completely deaf in one ear. She simply couldn’t hear and was spacing out. Still, by then Bundy had seen what herbs and a little magic could do. “I started looking into things, and once you fall into the herbal world, it leads to the crystals and the metaphysical and the spiritual side,” Bundy said. “It’s all one community. It was an awakening and realizing, ‘Oh, this makes sense to me.’” So Bundy, who was working in cosmetology doing eyelash extensions at the time, decided it was time for a change. In January 2017, on the heels of America electing Donald J. Trump as president, Tamed Wild Apothecary opened its doors to the village in Arroyo Grande. In March 2017, Bundy started mailing out


subscription boxes filled with items like ritual incense, Palo Santo, and handmade leather journals. She wasn’t quite ready for how quickly things would take off from there. “I think we hit it at the right time,” Bundy said. “I think it was something that was rising and we didn’t realize it.

A little magic

Penny Harrington, owner of the Ruby Dragon Metaphysical Shop and Healing Center in Morro Bay vividly remembers the day after the presidential election in 2016. “People came into the shop and were sitting and crying,” Harrington said. Harrington and her staff jumped in to teach people how to ground and soothe themselves in uncertain times, recommending stones like the light blue angelite or black tourmaline for anxiety. Since then, Harrington said business in the metaphysical and spiritual industry has been booming. In the sleepy tourist town of Morro Bay, the months between Christmas and summer are usually a slow time of year for retail shops. This March, Harrington said, her sales were up 30 percent—$4,000—from March of 2017. And while in years past, Harrington needed just one employee to man the shop, now there are so many customers that she has two people on the clock during store hours. “It has been steadily building for a while, but it took a big jump after Trump was elected,” Harrington said of the interest in alternative healing. “It hasn’t slowed down. It’s just busy, busy.” Along with the new administration came a resurgence in feminism across the country, with the rise of things like the #MeToo movement and the Women’s March in response to Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” comments that ushered in an already building wave of resentment for feminism and political correctness from the right. The way Bundy sees it, it makes sense that women would search to see themselves represented in spirituality as well. “I think it comes from a rise in feminism and a rise in women,” Bundy said. “The difference between the Earth-based spiritualities and a lot of the Catholic or Christian-based spiritualities is that they’re very masculine driven, and the Earth-based spirituality has a goddess and a god and they have the masculine and feminine in everything. There’s a balance. I think it’s gotten to a place where women are saying, ‘Where am I, and where am I represented in the realm of the divine?’”

Connecting to spirit

AnnKathleen has been working as a Tarot card reader on the Central Coast for more than 10 years and also has seen a rise in people searching for something. “I think troubled times always bring people to some sense of either going back to church or looking for answers,” AnnKatheen said. “I’ve seen a lot of people who have bigger issues with what’s going on and they don’t know how to make a connection with the feeling of ‘how do I live with this?” AnnKathleen is quick to tell people one

thing: “I’m not a fortune teller. Everybody can do this. Not everybody wants to do this, but everybody can. We all have the same abilities. We all have the connection to spirit and the divine.” Instead, AnnKathleen, who also teaches meditation and works as a mentor, tries to see what is through Tarot cards, which date back to the 1490s, when the Duke of Milan commissioned a special deck of cards for a game played by the nobility. Tarot cards weren’t used as a divination tool until around the 1700s. On a Friday in March, I sit down across a table from AnnKathleen at CovenTree Olde World Market in Santa Maria to see what the cards have to tell me, feeling simultaneously excited and apprehensive. AnnKathleen’s favorite deck at the moment is the Wild Unknown deck, a popular set for its creative artistry. After chatting for a few minutes, she reaches for that deck and hesitates, picking up another instead. “These really like you,” she says of the whimsical, flowing Shadowscapes deck. “I almost didn’t bring it. I was sitting there and I said, ‘Ugh, stop yelling at me. OK, I will take you.’” She has me cut and shuffle the cards, put the deck on the table and place my hands over the cards while thinking about what I want to know. She then takes the cards and lays them out in a Celtic cross formation. One by one, as the cards are unveiled, there seems to be a theme of fire, fours, and reversed cards. Given that I’m a Sagittarius, AnnKathleen says this makes sense. The Four of Cups reveals my current state, which is “a bit melancholic,” AnnKathleen said. There’s a bit of “if only.” My connection to higher self is represented by the Four of Wands, reversed. “You’ve kind of lost some faith in your connection to source,” she says. The Knight of Pentacles in reverse represents my everyday life. Upright, this card is usually about patience and perseverance. “But in reverse, it kind of means there is more of a block in the movement forward,” AnnKathleen said. “There is something you really, really want to do.” In my recent past, she sees sickness in the Strength card, in reverse (again). I have been hit with more than my fair share of cold and flu this year. “Physically, you’ve been a little worn out,” she says. “Take care of yourself, build yourself back up physically. More water. Maybe add in some extra B vitamins, some B12, some B6.” Looking to the future, she draws the Hangman, in reverse. “I love the hangman in reverse because it means get off the tree and go do it,” AnnKathleen said. And finally my challenges are represented by the Hermit in reverse and the Page of Wands, meaning that I should fight the urge to be alone and get ready to learn new things, respectively. “Find a way to enjoy yourself in the midst of others,” AnnKathleen advises. Having my Tarot cards read leaves me feeling a little naked, like the time my best friend read my diary in middle school, but it also brings back the giddy fun of tween sleepovers. That lightness is part of the appeal of Tarot, according to AnnKathleen. “I use this as a platform to lead people into self-work; it’s the carrot,” AnnKathleen said. “‘I want to give people a sense of inspiration to know they have the power to make any kind of change in their life no matter how challenging it may appear. That isn’t the whole story, there’s more to it.”

MAGICAL TOOLS Crystals, sage, journals, Tarot cards, and more tools designed to connect people to their own spiritual path can be found at Tamed Wild Apothecary in Arroyo Grande.

REBIRTH A bowl filled with water, herbs, a feather, and a floating candle represents all four elements. Women then contemplated their intentions while holding an agate stone egg, which was dunked in and out of the water to symbolize the birth of their intentions as the spring season and full moon begin.

HEALING HERBS Tamed Wild sells custom blends of herbs and teas to treat common maladies like tummy troubles, anxiety, or sleeplessness.

SNAIL MAIL Boxes filled with crystals, herbs, spells, and more are shipped out to 6,000 subscribers each month from Tamed Wild Apothecary’s warehouse in Atascadero as well as their international fulfillment center in the United Kingdom.

As smoke mingled with mist beneath the barely visible light of the new blue moon on March 31, Bundy led women of Christian, agnostic, and Wiccan faiths—or even a mesh of a few of those—through the ritual of welcoming it. She understands the idea of there being something more within the spiritual realm. To her, the recent shift of some women toward magic, Earth-based, female-centered spirituality is just everything coming full circle.

“We’re re-creating this cultural tradition of woman who used to gather,” Bundy said. “It’s just normal everyday women. … A lot of people that are finding this path are calling it an awakening, not something new that they’re discovering, but more of a remembering. And I think maybe that last election sparked that.” Δ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley is casting spells at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

From the ground up C uesta College’s North County Campus Plant Science Facility is ready for agriculture students who need a little lab time. Rows of trees, green beds, two green houses, and a head house—these are where labs will primarily take place for the Intro to Soil Science and Plant Propagation Production courses the school started offering at the beginning of the school year. Freshman Leif Swenson found out about the classes by leafing through the courses offered by Cuesta. “There is a lot that goes on in the ground that I was totally unaware of,” Swenson said. “It’s really cool and we’re learning a lot.” He said exploring the microbiology of

soil to produce a successful plant has really sparked an interest. He often tries to go into the greenhouse outside of class time to absorb as much as he can about the topic, but it wasn’t always that way. When he first stepped foot on the North County campus in August 2017, he couldn’t walk over to the area where the plant facility sits. “We weren’t even allowed within this fenced area because it was a hard-hat zone,” Swenson said. The Plant Science Facility isn’t the only thing that’s flourished. Cuesta’s overall agricultural program has grown immensely since it began about three years ago.

The head of the agriculture department and professor of agriculture business, Amy Stapp, said that the number of students who have declared agriculture as their major is about 500, an increase from last year’s 237 students. The department offers an associate degree in plant science and a certificate in agricultural mechanics, and courses in soil science and agricultural business. The department is also anticipating offering a viticulture course in the fall of 2018. For now, the students who have worked on growing and tending to crops since the beginning of the 2017-18 school year are selling the fruits of their labors in the facility’s first plant sale. On April 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Cuesta North County Campus, students and faculty will be selling the first batch of fresh crops: tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers, to name a few. The professor behind plant science, Dean Harrell, said that the students have been working hard to produce about 6,000 plants to showcase to the community. There will also be a booth called the Plant Doctor, where members of the community can ask questions about certain plants, seek advice, or learn what could help grow a better crop. Harrell said this is the perfect opportunity to promote the program, but

it’s also a great way to show the community what the students have learned. A lot of the plants that the students have worked with are varieties adapted to the Paso Robles area. “We’re growing the plants so that they perform well, wherever they end up,” he said. Harrell’s face lit up when he talked about the possibilities of employment for his students. He said he wants students to understand there are so many facets that go into the production of a crop and that a career in the field isn’t limited to being a grower. “Maybe you’re on the supply side of things, maybe the business side of things, or dealing with the mechanics of it,” he said. “I want our students to go out and understand the language and the way things work so they can make good decisions in the field.” Cuesta’s North County Campus is located at 2800 Buena Vista Dr. in Paso Robles.

Pillaging Lake Nacimiento We need a new agency and officials to manage this precious resource

P

illaging: To strip ruthlessly of all valuables by open violence, as in war; to plunder, despoil, abuse, and mistreat. This describes what the Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA) is about to unleash upon Lake Nacimiento, a very large residential environment and unsuspecting wildlife population’s habitat (which straddle the border with San Luis Obispo County). Both depend on the lake and its watershed’s natural water resources. The MCWRA’s controversial and ongoing mismanagement of Lake Nacimiento water releases is one bone of contention in the ongoing saga of the Save The Dragon movement. The movement is trying to save the rain and water runoff that come into the reservoir from the very organization that was put in place in 1957 to protect it. While Southern and Central Californians are trying to preserve water in reservoirs around the state, our “protection agency” is draining our precious resource as fast as it can, with absolutely no reflection on the welfare of the residents or the wildlife that inhabits the lake and surrounding forests. The MCWRA does not negotiate in good faith, with good conduct or with good intentions. The agency’s mission statement reads: “MCWRA manages, protects, stores, and conserves water resources in Monterey County for beneficial and environmental use while minimizing damage from flooding to

create a safe and sustainable water supply for present and future generations.” We are the present generation! We are just coming off of a seven-year drought. Last year, when the lake nearly filled, the agency released the water so fast that just about every dock in the lake was left high and dry. Residents requested to be told before the release so that they could protect their docks and property. But that request fell on deaf ears. When asked about it, the MCWRA responded by saying it had to prepare for next year’s rains. Not really knowing whether it would actually rain, this is a blatant reminder of this agency’s incompetence. It seems its power is in the hands of ignorant people. Lake Nacimiento was built as a watershed for farmers in the Salinas River basin. Those farmers don’t want or need the water in the winter when they get their own rain. They also want the water conserved for the spring and summer months when we reach three-digit temperatures and crops are suffering. And if there is another year of drought, we need the water to fight fires with. The sensible thing to do is conserve the water that’s there for the times when it isn’t and to regulate the dam properly for safety and flooding. In the past, the Nacimiento dam couldn’t hold at 100 percent capacity. That was fixed a few years ago. Now, unless that system has failed at the price of a few million dollars, the lake should be able to hold at least a 70 to 80 percent backlog of water. Why drain the lake to 20 and 30 percent by summer, leaving

clubs and private property owners with no launching facilities and wildlife scrambling for a viable water source? Californians are hard-working people with few water resources to be able to recreate in and around with friends and family. So the lakes that are around should be able to maintain a usable water level for the population choosing to visit the lake. Without launching facilities, there is no reason to come to the lake. Therefore, the county gets no revenue. The MCRWA has cut its own cash cow by closing launching facilities to the public. Why come to Lake Nacimiento if there is no water? And then there is the wildlife mis-

Since water doesn’t seem to stand a chance of remaining in either of the lakes and is only going to be released to its final destination, the ocean, why not put that tunnel money toward another holding reservoir—the “Jerrett Resevoir”—above Nacimiento to store water for the future? Gee, does that sound too much like an intelligent idea with a dash of common sense? We need to bring in the big guns again! State officials.

There are many rivers, creeks, and ponds, narrows and other entrances where water comes into the lake from the surrounding mountain ranges. When the lake maintains a steady level of water, it also maintains a sustainable water supply for all the wildlife in the area.

you’ve got an opinion. What’s Your Take? We know Everybody’s got one! This week’s online poll 4/12 – 4/19

How do you feel about Cal Poly’s response to members of a fraternity dressing as “gangsters,” including one in blackface makeup? m What response? Cal Poly clearly does not care about minority students. m I’m glad they held a town hall, but that’s enough. m I think they have responded appropriately so far. m The university is overreacting. This is political correctness run amok!

I know New Times heartily endorsed Audrey McClish’s commentary, “Why ‘America First’ is for losers” (April 5), which was a well-written, idealistic piece, but I found it unconvincing. Instead, I sense serious shortcomings in her knowledge of our founding principles and our Constitution. How naive it is to say, “I realize that immigration is a complicated issue, and that a certain amount of control and regulation is necessary” and then go on to champion no control whatsoever. Illegal immigrants are not good people. They’re people, just as our citizens are people. Some are good, some bad. Some are smart, some dumb. Some are educated, some not so much. Some are honest, some are crooks. Why should I believe that in some way illegal immigrants are better, more honest, more hard working than my friends and neighbors? Can you imagine what would happen if the 50,000 illegals caught coming across our southern border in March were just allowed to stay and given some type of legal status? I certainly can. It would start a stampede of illegals similar to what we saw in Europe when Germany opened its borders to the war-torn and oppressed. That only makes sense. In spite of so many on the left, you included, with a hate “America first” (and perhaps hate America) opinion, the rest of the world knows that there’s no better place

to live than here in the United States and they’re willing to die to get here. I’m a second-generation American while most of my friends are first-generation, and we all believe in the value of immigration and appreciate the contributions made by legal immigrants. So stop calling us names and demonizing us for wanting orderly and legal immigration. We are a sovereign nation and have the right to decide if and who we want to accept. And if we decide we only want Ph.D.s, that’s fine. If we decide we only want farm hands, that’s fine, too. It’s our choice. So my advice to Ms. McClish, as she matures into adulthood, is to widen her view by seeking out folks with opposing opinions, listen and learn from them, and then articulate better arguments in support of her position. What she offered in her commentary was useless. And calling half of our citizens who believe in “America first” losers just proves how immature and ignorant (lacking knowledge or awareness) she is and adds nothing in support of her argument.

Opinion

Rhetoric&Reason

BY AL FONZI

Objection to a ‘modest proposal’

I

have to take issue with Pat Veesart’s “A modest proposal” (March 29) as it would not have stopped any of the mass shootings that have occurred within the last 25 years. It would require a national gun registry/licensing scheme, which is fiercely opposed by defenders of the Second Amendment. The reason is simple: Such registries have been repeatedly used as a tool for confiscation of firearms from the law-abiding citizen via bureaucratic fiat leaving the citizen to the mercies of violent predators or worse, government tyranny. Those who dismiss such concerns as paranoia haven’t been reading the papers lately as emboldened progressives, such as former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, are openly calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment. That’s a hard road but not impossible as many progressives are also calling for eliminating or rewriting the First Amendment’s protections of free speech, the press, and religion to accommodate their political preferences. The Second Amendment is the ultimate guarantor of the First. The only real guarantee of preserving any part of the Bill of Rights is the willingness and capability of the populace to defend those rights with deadly force. Without both the means and the will, the amendments are meaningless. The upcoming generation seems quite willing

to surrender their rights to speech and conscience to conform to whatever is deemed acceptable by a majority. The loss of the ability to defend those rights with deadly force negates the will to fight in most cases. It’s not an easy thing to stand up to heavily armed “legally constituted authorities” willing to shoot to kill unarmed protesters. Civil disobedience was tried in China and Iran within the last 25 years and ended badly for the protesters; some estimates put the death toll in China as high as 20,000 civilians killed by the military and security forces. An uncertain number were also massacred in Iran a few years ago. The will to fight is critical to preserve freedom with the desire for freedom usually strongest among those deprived of it. I observed elderly people in Iraq who walked miles to vote in a free election for the first time, even while under the threat of torture and death by terrorists. They had the will, and we provided the guns to protect most of them as they voted for the first time. Ignorance of the evolution of the Second Amendment and American history is prevalent among academics and the general population. It’s enough to make members of the WWII Greatest Generation ask themselves, “Why did we bother?” The scholarship of professor Joyce Lee Malcom of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University formed the

basis of Justice Scalia’s arguments in the District of Columbia v. Heller decision, which confirmed the Second Amendment as an individual right for citizens to keep and bear arms, not just a collective right to have a government sponsored militia. Her work is a thorn in the side of collectivist-statists, such as U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York who openly mocked her during her congressional testimony on the subject, but he was unable to muster intellectual arguments against her scholarship. Malcom is an expert on the “area of constitutional history, focusing on the development of individual rights in Great Britain and America,” according to her bio. She’s not an avid firearm owner or user nor does she hunt. She is a lover of history and the Constitution that evolved from it. An anecdote from her doctoral thesis, later her first book, (a 1,000-plus page tome on political tracts of 17th century England) published by the Royal Historical Society of Britain identified circumstances that led the English people to demand codification of their right to bear arms for self-defense. Villages and towns were at great risk from marauding mercenary armies, so locals formed militias for personal and collective defense. They acquired the best weapons they could, which were owned and used by individual peasantry. But when the king showed up,

he demanded the local militia turn out with their best weapons. If they complied, he would confiscate their weapons. Subsequently, the people successfully demanded that the 1689 English Bill of Rights codify the right for “Protestants to have arms for their defense” irrespective of the wishes of the monarch. Again, having a right and the will to keep it are separate issues. During the 19th century, private firearm ownership in Britain was common and crime was relatively low. However, by the mid20th century crime began to spike. At the beginning of April, London had the dubious distinction of having a higher murder rate than New York City. There are a multitude of factors for this, but the major one is that Britain has disarmed its citizens via parliamentary decree. Thugs are emboldened: attacks on the elderly, sexual assaults upon women, burglaries/ home invasions with occupants present are dramatically increasing with urban gangrelated homicides exploding. Women in England are allowed to have “rape alarms” but not chemical repellents, lest it become an “offensive weapon” and harm their attacker. All of the “modest proposals” previously mentioned were adopted in Britain, whose “subjects” (not citizens) are now defenseless. ∆ Al Fonzi is an Army lieutenant colonel of military intelligence who had a 35-year military career, serving in both the Vietnam and Iraq wars.

Opinion Oops, they did it again!

C

al Poly made national news again! Yay! Was it because Cal Poly was ranked No. 1 in U.S. News’ Best Colleges list? No? Really? Well, was it because the Aeronautical Engineering program produced another NASA astronaut like Robert “Hoot” Gibson or Frederick Wilford “CJ” Sturchow? No? Um, was it because lily-white Cal Poly seems to have a systemic and pervasive problem with bigotry in all its disgusting forms? Yes? Really? Well damn! That sucks! In case you’re on a social media and news blackout, Cal Poly’s in national media again because early this month photos of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity members appeared online showing one in blackface (Ha-ha! Minstrel shows! Retro-hilarious!) and others dressed as Hispanic gangbangers throwing gang signs and decorated with prison and gang tattoos. Oh—and it was during PolyCultural Weekend, which is designed to demonstrate how inviting Cal Poly is to minority students. Yikes! And oops! The frat issued this statement by way of explanation: “This event was a competition between teams in which each team is represented by a different color (i.e., Red, Blue, Green, Black, Yellow). Similar to high school spirit rallies and collegiate student sections, members dressed up in support of their specific

team. We are extremely sorry and embarrassed for failing to recognize the racial impacts this brought forth.” Well there you go! Perfectly innocent! They were merely ignorant, not racist! Right? Excuse me, members of Lambda Chi Alpha—whose core values are supposedly “loyalty, duty, respect, service and stewardship, honor, integrity, and personal courage”—but I call bullshit. What “color” does dressing like minority gang members depict? Brown? Did the Red group dress as Native Americans? Were the Yellow group members dressed as Asians? Did you, perhaps, have a Rainbow group dressed as LGBTQ+? Look, I’m sure some of you guys are actual obtuse dumbshits too oblivious to realize how racist your behavior is, but surely among you are one or two astute young men who could have pointed out that what you were doing looked really bad. I mean, I guess it’s possible that each and every member of your house is a total moron, but statistically speaking, that seems unlikely. Of course, it’d be nice to think this was some kind of anomaly, a unsavory blip in an otherwise tolerant and inclusive campus culture, but looking back over the last 10 years or so, it seems pretty clear that Cal Poly is populated by racist assholes. In October 2008, students living in the Cal Poly Crop Science House were found to be displaying a noose and a

The Shredder confederate flag, which are clearly racist and threatening, and during a Halloween party, people reported seeing a sign posted at the door that read, “No niggers, no faggots, no hippies.” The six students living in the subsidized housing were told to find other accommodations, but otherwise there were no repercussions. The university cited free speech and claimed the incident wasn’t indicative of Cal Poly. In March 2013, a black student’s roommates scrawled racist and homophobic comments on his door. It was considered vandalism. On Nov. 15, 2013, Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity hosted a “Colonial Bros and Nava-hos” party, denigrating both Native Americans and women! Twofer! The university concluded it didn’t violate any campus policies. In February 2016, another student’s apartment door was “vandalized” with “I ♥ Niggers” and decorated with the Communist hammer and sickle motif as well as sauvastika symbols, which look like a reverse swastika, probably because the “vandal” was too dumb to realize he was drawing it in reverse. He also wrote “clean the trash” twice. Hygiene is important! In November 2016, Cal Poly Republicans erected their Free Speech Wall, which was soon covered by anti LGBTQ, African-American, and Muslim slurs. It was smashed in the night and rebuilt the next day. In November 2017, the wall contained vulgar anti-Trump messages. I can hardly wait for 2018’s wall! In June 2017, Alpha Gamma Rho

fraternity caught heat for a photo depicting its members in ethnically insensitive costumes while holding a banner that read “TRUMP—MAKE AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN.” They were standing in front of their California Boulevard house. Some were armed with rifles. You really know how to make Cal Poly proud, boys! Learn by buffooning! Is it just me or does it seem like there are a lot of goddamn intolerant ignoramuses attending Cal Poly? Also, does it seem like Cal Poly administration’s reaction—condolences, sympathy, and minimal action—are the equivalent of “hopes and prayers” in the face of gun violence? Yes, free speech is a thing. So is being held accountable for that free speech. Lambda Chi Alpha is currently on suspension while the party and photographs are being investigated, but should the university enact tougher policies? Free speech protects hate speech, but that doesn’t mean Cal Poly can’t set codes of conduct. Minority students have the right to feel safe on campus and know that the university will expel students engaging racist behavior. National news for racism, the St. Fratty’s Day roof collapse, inmate torture and deaths in the SLO County Jail, Uber driver rapes—I miss the good old days when San Luis Obispo was in national news for being the Happiest City in America. Sigh. ∆ The Shredder knows the sting of antioffice machinery bigotry. Send ideas and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

Irrepressible Fleet Foxes play the Madonna Expo Center

M

usic is a weird business. I’ve seen so many ultra-talented musicians go nowhere and too many vacant and sub-talented pretties make it big. Many artists claim that music piracy has made a career impossible while others credit piracy with giving them the exposure to succeed or get a record deal. It’s a topsy-turvy music world out there, folks, one that kills geniuses in droves by age 27 but allows a douchebag like Justin Bieber to have a huge career. Simply puzzling! Personally, I love the small stories, the come from nowhere and luck your way to prominence stories, the doing it for the love of music stories, which is Seattle-based alt-rock act Fleet Foxes’ story. It’s the classic two high school buddies tale, where a love of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Brian Wilson drove Lake Washington High School students Robin Pecknold and Skyler Skjelset to start woodshedding in 2006, eventually creating a quintet that recorded its first album in various apartments and Pecknold’s parents’ basement. By 2007, Fleet Foxes had a quarter of a million plays on their Myspace site, even though they’d yet to physically release any of their material. Pecknold attributed their online success and eventual record deal with Sub Pop to illegal file sharing. Their eponymous debut was finally released in 2008, followed by Helplessness Blues (2011) and most recently Crack-Up (2017), and this Wednesday, April 18, Fleet Foxes plays the Madonna Expo Center (7 p.m.; all ages; $30 presale at ticketfly.com and

Boo Boo Records, or $35 at the door). Expect contagiously and relentlessly hooky pop nuggets layered with harmony vocals played by a band of skilled multiinstrumentalists. It won’t take long to understand how they garnered various awards, including a Grammy nomination, as well as made many best album lists for each of their three releases. Fleet Foxes is brought to you by Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents, which also has a bevy of shows booked at Morro Bay’s The Siren this week, starting

with awesome AC/DC tribute band High Voltage on Saturday, April 14 (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $12 presale at ticketfly.com and Boo Boo Records, or $15 at the door). These guys are righteous and deliver a show worthy of the mighty AC/DC! Japanese action comic punk juggernauts Peelander-Z play The Siren on Tuesday, April 17 (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $13 presale at ticketfly. com and Boo Boo Records, or $15 at the door). “Have you heard of human bowling, wrestling, and Kung Fu action, or funny

dance at the punk rock show? Peelander-Z knows how to entertain the audience by dragging them into the show. Peelander-Z is the best of the universe!” according to the band’s humble bio! Santa Cruz-based punk, ska, reggae party band The Expendables, with opening acts Hold Up and Inna Vision, play an early 4/20 celebration on Wednesday, April 18, at The Siren (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $20 general admission or $65 VIP meet-andgreet at ticketfly.com or Boo Boo’s).

Don’t forget about pop singer-songwriter and actress Hayley Kiyoko (Insidious: Chapter 3, Jem and the Holograms, XOXO) playing the Fremont on Thursday, April 12 (8 p.m.; $22). Rolling Stone magazine called her one of the “10 Artists You Need To Know” in 2017. Hard blinging rep sensation Nef the Pharaoh plays the Fremont on Friday, April 13 (9 p.m.; all ages; $20 at eventbrite.com and Boo Boo Records). Expect a lot of N-words and expensive jewelry on stage—“Look at my neck, bling blaow!” EDM producer Minnesota plays the Fremont on Saturday, April 14 (9 p.m.; 18-and-older; $20 at eventbrite.com and Boo Boo Records). “My goal is to make bass heavy dubstep/glitch-hop music that’ll get you dancing, but it’s not the same old three-note transformer step ... I try to focus more on the melodic side of dubstep, and hopefully, make quality songwriting a more relevant factor in the genre,” Minnesota—aka Christian Bauhofer—said in press materials. Reggae performer Alborosie, with Tribal Theory and Pure Roots featuring Earl Rose, plays the Fremont on Sunday, April 15 (9 p.m.; $27 at eventbrite.com and Boo Boo Records). Socially conscious old-school style!

Venerable British progressive hard rock act Uriah Heep plays the Fremont on Wednesday, April 18 (9 p.m.; $27 general admission or $102 VIP meetand-greet at eventbrite.com and Boo Boo Records). This is a band mentioned in the same breath as Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, Yes, and Led Zeppelin—a band that helped invent British heavy metal with their debut album, Very ’Eavy, Very ’Umble (1970). Later this year, their 26th studio album, Living the Dream, is scheduled for release. Local hard rock quartet Stone Mountain—a band influenced by ’70s rock with a mix of doom, metal, and psychedelic—will open the show.

DON’T MAKE A SOUND Evelyn Abbott (Emily Blunt, left) signals to her deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds, a deaf actor) to be quiet lest a creature that hunts by sound discovers them.

Riveting! D irector and co-writer John Krasinski (Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, Promised Land, The Hollars) helms and stars in this horror story, co-written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, about the Abbott family—father Lee (Krasinski), pregnant mother Evelyn (Emily Blunt), and kids Beau (Cade Woodward), Marcus (Noah Jupe), and deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds)—who must live in utter silence to protect themselves from deadly creatures that hunt by sound. (90 min.)

Glen While the synopsis may sound like standard-issue sci-fi horror, A Quiet Place is instead throat-clenchingly tense and a thoroughly thoughtful meditation on parenthood, family, and guilt. The film isn’t concerned with where the creatures come from or how they got there. Yes, we see a few newspaper front pages—with headlines suggesting it’s a worldwide phenomenon—that are pinned up in Lee’s workshop, where he tirelessly toils trying to improve his daughter Regan’s hearing aid. A scrawled-on white board asks, “Weaknesses,” but the creatures appear to be indestructible—they’re all gill-like earflaps and sharp teeth on long-limbed grasshopper-like bodies that can tear a human to pieces. Because the creatures are blind and don’t appear to have a sense of smell, the film ups the terror level since the creatures can be in the very same room but not know someone’s there ... provided the person stays absolutely silent. The few remaining pockets of civilization are in total survival mode,

Downtown Centre, Stadium 10, Galaxy Co-writer/director Ryan Coogler (Creed) helms this story about T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a newly crowned king of the technologically advanced but isolationist country of Wakanda, who finds his new kinghood challenged by Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), a vengeful victim of T’Challa’s father’s past actions. Every comic book hero needs a villain, and the obvious one here is white South African arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), who’s working with Killmonger to steal vibranium, an alien metal that arrived as a meteorite and is responsible

for the Wakandan technology. But that’s only looking at the surface. Dig deeper into this Afro-centric and female-centric film and the real villain is colonialism and the African diaspora is caused that fuels competing ideologies within the larger black community. It’s an empowering reimagining of African roots but also—remember—a fantasy. Ultimately, this is a super hero flick that refuses to stay in the genre’s rut and that’s interested in exploring complicated political and cultural ideas. Sure, other Marvel stories have looked at politics, from Iron Man and the arms trade to Captain America: Winter’s Soldier and drones, PTSD, and warfare, but Black Panther goes deeper than any other Marvel storyline.

said she was important to give the role authenticity as well as helping the other actors learn sign language. Most recent horror movies have bored me due to a lack of scares, flat characters, or hackneyed writing and direction. A Quiet Place falls prey to none of that, and it offers a badass but open ending, which I found hopeful, though my wife didn’t—that’s deft filmmaking in my book. Anna I was also reminded of It Comes at Night while watching this, another gripping and spellbinding horror film that plays to the terror of isolation and an unknown enemy. The creatures in A Quiet Place are certainly terrifying, alien beings that are all ears, teeth, and hooks that move swiftly and show no mercy. They seem to have no weakness, but thanks to happenstance and a bit of cleverness, the idea of a way to fight back does come about. I wouldn’t say that the film ends hopelessly; in fact, I do see the last scene, and especially the last moment, as a wonderful, desperate grasp at hope for the Abbotts. They’ve proven they can survive almost anything. However, it’s hard to see how anyone can survive a lifetime in this world, but by God I’m rooting for them! See this one in theaters. This is best viewed surrounded in darkness and free from distraction. I’m betting you’ll be just as glued to the screen and storyline as I was. Δ

I’m a big fan of both Krasinski and Blunt, and as a director Krasinski really seems to have hit his stride with films essentially about family: I thought The Hollars was an exceptionally cast and understatedly great film, and A Quiet Place matches it with a horrific twist. Early on we realize the totality of the Abbotts’ dilemma: Two of their children are old enough to grasp the importance of their silence, but how do you communicate to a 4-year-old the danger faced by the simple act of dropping a hard plastic toy to the ground? How do you ensure your deaf preteen isn’t making noise without realizing it? It’s a bleak world, and one that feels nearly hopeless. We start at day 89 and skip to about a year later, and while the normal things in a family still exist, they’re forever changed by the silence that protects them. Instead of plates they use pieces of fabric at dinner; Monopoly pieces have been replaced with crocheted and cloth baubles so they won’t make noise. Soon Evelyn’s baby bump grows too big to ignore, and the rest of the film I sat clutching my face, wondering how in the world this family will manage to survive. Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Glen If you’ve read anything about the Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna. film you’ve no doubt learned that Blunt, Comment at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com. who’s married to Krasinski, suggested a friend of hers for the role of Evelyn, but after reading the script, she asked her husband to give her the role instead. Well, Blunt is simply incredible as Evelyn. She owns the character, and her birth scene will go down in the history of horror as one of the most gripping sequences ever set to film (well, probably video, but you know what I’m saying). It’s also worth mentioning DESPERATE Lee Abbott (John Krasinski, who also directs), that deaf Regan will do anything to keep his children safe from horrific is played by a deaf creatures that hunt by sound. actress, and Krasinski

and every night, Lee climbs to the top of an ominous grain silo on their secluded farm and lights a signal fire, waiting as a handful of others light up in the distance. Lee also tinkers with his ham radio, trying to find out if anywhere’s safe, but to no avail. The family’s dayto-day existence is silently picking crops and doing chores, giving the kids reading and math lessons, preparing a soundproof box with an oxygen supply to deafen the cries of their impending baby, and occasionally venturing to a nearby town to scavenge through abandoned stores and to a river to collect fish they’ve caught in baskets. All they have is each other, and Lee and Evelyn’s primary and immediate goal is to keep their children safe. The film is nearly silent, with almost all dialogue mouthed and accompanied by American Sign Language. It’s a fresh and remarkable take on the horror genre, with scenes that will have you white-knuckling your armrest or silently crying to yourself in empathy for the family’s plight. It’s just brilliant! Anna I was pulled in from the beginning; just the thought of having to live every moment in silence and utter terror gives the film a great premise to work with. I’m always impressed when a film can pull off a lack of dialogue—Robert Redford’s All Is Lost is a prime example—and doubly so when the silence is used as either a tool or weapon toward the audience. There is communication in this film, and it’s used to convey what the audience most needs— the dynamics of this family’s relationship.

CHAPPAQUIDDICK What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Park, Galaxy John Curran (Tracks, Stone, The Painted Veil) directs this historical drama about Ted Kennedy’s (Jason Clarke) involvement in the death of campaign strategist Mary Jo Kopechne (Kate Mara) in 1969.

Pick

I remember the scandal even though I wasn’t fully aware of what it all meant at the time. It was just a year after Teddy’s brother Bobby had been assassinated. Teddy was the last living Kennedy brother, having also lost his oldest brother, Joe Jr., who was killed in action during World War II in 1944, and his second oldest brother, President John F., to an assassin’s bullet in 1963. Ted was family patriarch Joe Kennedy’s (Bruce Dern) last hope to see a son serve through a term as president, and then Chappaquiddick happened. A drunken Ted ran his car off a bridge and left his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, to die. As a staunch liberal, I’ve always admired Ted Kennedy, the fourth longest serving senator in U.S. history who championed civil, LGBT, and women’s rights; education; health care; and introduced the Americans With Disabilities

Act, among other achievements. This film has certainly colored my opinion of the oftcalled “Lion of the Senate.” Ted Kennedy is painted as a man burdened by the long shadow of his more successful brothers’ achievements. He comes off as small, weak willed, and morally compromised. Could he have saved Kopechne? We’ll probably never know the truth, but Chappaquiddick suggests his inaction—he waited until his car and Kopechne had been discovered before reporting his involvement and then claimed shock and a concussion for his tardiness— may have led to her death and caused horrible suffering along the way. The story also involves a Kennedy cousin, Joe Gargan (Ed Helms), who was the family’s go-to guy when a mess needed MOVIES continued page 41

Do you believe in redemption? Ted Kennedy must have. He no doubt knew what he did was wrong, but his deep-seated need to protect his family’s name as well as his heartfelt belief that he could do more good legislating as a senator kept him fighting for liberal causes. Chappaquiddick ’s version of events suggests Ted was a deeply flawed man—one who, when faced with doing the morally correct thing or the politically expedient thing, chose the latter. Does that negate the good he did as a senator? Chappaquiddick asks you to decide. (101 min.) —Glen Starkey

THE DEATH OF STALIN What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? The Palm Co-writer/director Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop) helms this farce about the power struggle following the death of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin (Adrian McLoughlin) in 1953. Who will win control? Frightened puppet Georgy Malenkov (Jeffery Tambor), crafty Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), or secret police sadist Lavrenti Beria (Simon Russell Beale)? Filled with clever zingers and scathing political humor, there’s a lot to snicker at here, but I didn’t seem to find the film as laughout-loud funny as many in the screening we saw. It’s basically about the bumbling power struggle created by the power vacuum following a murderous despot’s death—small-minded, venal men stepping all over each other in their quest to gain control. Sounds hilarious, right? Right? Though I find it an imperfect analogy, one can certainly compare the depicted Stalin’s administration with Trump’s, and it’s absolutely an indictment of Russian governmental corruption, so yes, it’s a savage satire but not necessarily a funny one. As you might expect from such as talented cast, the performances all around are solid, with Buscemi and Tambor standing out. Because of how some of the characters are written, a few performances border on cartoonish, such as Jason Isaacs as Field Marshal Zhukov and Stalin’s kids Svetlana (Andrea Risenborough) and Vasily (Rupert Friend), who are rather cliché. Living at the whim of a violent dictator seems less than fun, so while I appreciated the film’s biting satire, I also found its world more than a bit depressing. Maybe due to the current White House occupant, I’ve grown tired of politics. (107 min.) —Glen Starkey

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Streaming Where’s it showing? Galaxy, Fair Oaks Writer-director Paolo Virzì (The First Beautiful Thing, Human Capital, Like Crazy) directs Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland as an elderly couple who unbeknownst to their family take off on a misguided final adventure in their trusty old RV they call The Leisure Seeker. Based on Michael Zadoorian’s novel, the story centers on John Spencer, a former literature teacher with Alzheimer’s, and his devoted wife, Ella. Two great actors, revered source material, and a director known for deftly crafted human stories—what could go wrong? In The Leisure Seeker, surprisingly a lot. Like a lot of effective novels, Zadoorian’s story doesn’t translate with the same nuance and depth to the big screen. John and Ella are a little too cookie cutter. He’s in turns charming and erudite, albeit overly didactic and a little boring; she’s exasperated one minute and desperately in love with John the next. He wakes up and thinks it’s a different decade—that he’s a young professor off to teach, or he’s paranoid about some long lost boyfriend from Ella’s youth. She’s a doting wife one second and ready to leave him on the side of the road the next. All these pivots are too

much even for Mirren and Sutherland to manage without an element of broad cartoonishness. To its credit, the film has a couple beefy third act twists that can’t be discussed without revealing too much of the plot, but suffice it to say, they bring a big bump in John and Ella’s long relationship before finding a way to resolve the story that feels both inevitable and surprising ... if you haven’t read the novel.

LOVE, SIMON

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm Greg Berlanti (Life as We Know It) directs this coming of age story about Simon Spier (Nick Robinson), a closeted gay teenager who must face his sexual identity. At first, Love, Simon came across as boilerplate coming of age story with the slight twist of Simon being a closeted gay. It set up warm relationships with his friends Leah (Katherine Langford), Nick (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.), and Abby (Alexandra Shipp); parents Emily (Jennifer Garner) and Jack (Josh Duhamel); and sister Nora (Talitha Bateman). He’s just a regular guy with a big secret who likes to gaze out his window at the hunky gardener next door and dream of being accepted for who he is. The only out gay boy at his high school is Ethan (Clark Moore), who unlike Simon is exaggeratedly effete but sharp-witted enough to rebuff his peers who dare mock him. It’s 2018, so of course part of the story must play out online with a school gossip and online confession site, on which Simon begins an email correspondence with another gay young man named “Blue.” Simon takes on his own pseudonym, “Jacques,” and the two get to know each other, though neither knows the other’s true identity. Throughout the story, Simon wonders which of his classmates it is: Bram (Keiynan Lonsdale), the soccer player; Cal (Miles Heizer), the brooding loner; or Lyle (Joey Pollari), the hunky wallflower. The story’s antagonist is star thespian and royal douche bag Martin (Logan Miller), who by accident is able to screenshot some of Simon and Blue’s emails and thus extort Simon into setting Martin up with Simon’s gorgeous friend Abby, who naturally Simon’s other friend Nick is already in love with. Like John Hughes films such as Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, 16 Candles, and The Breakfast Club, Love, Simon gets right to the heart of what it means to be an awkward adolescent trying to find your place in the world. The screenplay by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, which is based on the YA novel Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, delivers a big-hearted story that celebrates a changing culture that’s trying to shake off its homophobic history. It’s definitely worth a trip to the theater. (109 min.) —Glen Starkey

And diverse casting like this should be the norm in movies, I scratched my head a bit when it was revealed that Kaling’s character was the Mrs. Who that could only quote others to get her message across, leaving Witherspoon with the most dialogue out of the trio, since Winfrey was in less scenes. Having a diverse cast is progress, but why did Witherspoon, the only white actress of the trio, get the most lines? I did, however, enjoy the standout performance of Reid as a struggling, angst-filled teen dealing with the unexplained absence of her dad. In one particularly moving scene, her younger brother Charles Wallace has been taken over by an evil force and she declares, “You should love me because I deserve to be loved!” It’s a message that more young girls need to hear. While I wouldn’t recommend forking over the cash to see it on the big screen, renting A Wrinkle in Time on a rainy day and curling up inside at home would make for a pleasant enough afternoon.

BLAST FROM THE Another familiar face is James Coburn as Sedgwick, the “Manufacturer,” who leads a workshop building tools. The film takes serious care to show the amount of work that went into a breakout of that magnitude. At two hours and 52 minutes, The Great Escape takes its time to build up. The escape doesn’t begin until after the first hour, and that’s when it starts to feel like a faster paced action flick. The length of the film allows for so much depth, illustrating subtle beefs between Nazi Luftwaffe and the Gestapo or the painful means POWs went to in order to keep their plans a secret. And once the escape is on, the Austrian countryside and the Alps serve as a stunning backdrop to McQueen’s iconic motorcycle chase scene, which was written specifically for him due to his love of motorcycling. It, of course, isn’t true to history. But true to history, not many of the escapees fare well, so this movie might not be appropriate for kids younger than 13 or so. The Great Escape has really come to epitomize the genre of movies about prison breaks or daring escapes from a brutal oppressor. The hilarious sendup by Aardman Animations, Chicken Run (2000), was an homage that really illustrated how ingrained the film is in pop culture. From the barbed wire and searchlights to the earworm score by Elmer Bernstein, there’s plenty worth revisiting in this long running but slow burning classic. Δ —Joe Payne

Central Coast Brewing’s second locale is a beer drinker’s destination

@flavorslo

O

pening night. The curtain rises. The audience goes wild. It’s a rare and unforgettable thrill. For Central Coast Brewing Brewmaster Brendan Gough, the brewery is his stage, the beers his players. After racking up a throng of Great American Beer Festival wins, you could say these beers are actually more like stars. CCB’s Monterey Street IPA—which took gold in 2017, silver in 2016, and gold in 2015— is what you’d call a new national sweetheart. Understandably, Gough and the whole CCB team went through a range of emotions as the curtain rose on “opening night” last month. Of course, I’m talking about CCB’s anticipated second location at 6 Higuera St. in SLO. If you haven’t been there yet, it’s probably because it’s been too crowded. Celebrating 20 years in business, this wasn’t just any ribbon cutting ceremony. Many will agree: CCB heads aren’t just any craft beer drinkers. They’re super diverse in age and background, quite enthusiastic, and, as it turns out, insanely loyal. A crowd of approximately 2,000 filtered in and out over the next eight hours or so, anxious to tour the shimmering 12,000-square-foot brewery and taproom complete with wood-fired pizza oven, sprawling bar, outdoor fire pit, and wellappointed game room. If the brewery’s first location on Monterey Street represents the original, quirky cult classic, this new venture is the action packed sequel, all stops pulled. “It was chaos. At one point, there was an hour wait outside; people were standing in the rain,” Gough said of the pandemonium. “We were all just taken aback by the response.” After so much building, planning, and scheming, the brewmaster, CCB owner George Peterson, and CCB Sales Manager Stormy Trevino were finally plopped into the middle of what had been a longawaited two-year dream. “It wasn’t until opening day that it hit me—this is actually happening,’” Gough said with a laugh. This is understandable. Since Gough left Firestone and signed on full time at CCB some four years ago, he’s been focused keenly, acutely, on quality control. The incredible success of CCB’s Monterey Street IPA—named best in the nation the past three years—as well as the brewery’s Lucky Day IPA (which one a World Beer Cup gold medal in 2016) and General Schwarz (another 2016 GABF gold medal winner) stand as testament to

the brewmaster’s steady hand. His philosophy is pragmatic: Manically perfect your beer before it ever sees the light of day. Make only as much as people will drink, and keep ’em wanting just a little drop more. Only supply that beer to local outlets that keep it fresh and tasting so. Lastly, and this is important: Party often (or, share the excitement with friends and fam). Lately, a celebratory glow seems to hover over each new release (especially those trendy hazy unfiltered IPAs like Juice Box Hero). “Can parties” where you can grab cans of limited brews and seasonal releases will continue to pepper CCB’s event calendar. People want to be part of the buzz, and— as they say—a rising tide lifts all boats. “We’re hearing from craft beer drinkers who have never been to SLO who are stopping through to come to CCB,” Trevino said. “This is a beer destination now, not just for our area, but for the state. “ With 18-foot-high ceilings, tables made of Cambria pine, custom furniture, and plenty of shiny, stainless steel, the new CCB does feel like a destination, although, for south end residents, it’s become a welcome neighborhood joint, too. The brewery is family friendly, offering up pizza, sliders, and wings. There are very few television screens. “We were all college students once. But you reach a certain point of your life where you want to

Do the brew

Central Coast Brewing is located at 1422 Monterey St. and the new location is open at 6 Higuera St. in San Luis Obispo. For more information on the new location, call (805) 783-2739 or go to centralcoastbrewing.com.

go somewhere where you can enjoy high quality beer and good food in a relaxed atmosphere,” Trevino said. That’s not to say that CCB doesn’t keep it a little funky. The band Brass Mash played a soft opening Mardi Gras party recently, kicking off what will now likely be a beloved tradition. “About 50 people were dancing out here with the band. Some friends and family were up on the catwalk watching. It was amazing just seeing people losing it and having fun,” Trevino said. “I don’t think we envisioned that happening, but once it did, we said, ‘Let’s do this again.’” May 4 (May the Forth Be With You) will bring the return of live music by Brass Mash, and yes, Star Wars costumes are encouraged. Even with all this “extra” flair, the focal point of the new space is certainly the brand new, state-of-the-art 20-barrel brewhouse at its heart. Complete with eight 60-barrel fermenters, this system

allows CCB room to grow into new markets, albeit, as Gough said, “That will happen slowly, organically.” Again, a way cool club house is nothing without good beer, right? “We want to let demand pull on supply and not flood the markets,” Gough added. “To me, as the brewer, it’s all about quality control and making sure the beer is as good as it can be. It’s not difficult to make good beer. The hardest thing in the world is managing everything else.” I don’t even have to say the beer is fresh on tap at CCB. All 48 taps—which include cider—are lovingly considered. But what of the mothership—the locale that started it all? The first CCB at 1422 Monterey St.— like the award winning beer that shares its name—will be sticking around for the foreseeable future. It’s practically a SLO icon at this point, like Bubblegum Alley or nearby Frank’s chili dogs. Thankfully, Gough and the CCB crew have planned for longevity and legacy. More than a taproom, this new CCB location was built so friends and fans can hangout to shoot darts, nosh, and catch up around a crackling fire. As it turns out, when your fans are this loyal, you want to keep ’em happy. “Our first location is such a rich place. We love it, and it’s a huge part of our history, but it was never meant to be a brewery,” Gough said. “This place was the opposite—every single piece has been thought out.” Δ Hayley Thomas Cain is playing Street Fighter II at the new CCB, if you want to challenge her.

Flavor H ayley’s Bites Nosh oN this! Biz buffet: The currently underconstruction San Luis Obispo Public Market—slated to open in 2019 at the old Bonetti Ranch on Higuera Street—is gathering steam (and tasty occupants). What’s in store next year? A new, second location for Avila Beach’s Kraken Coffee Co., a 5,549-square-foot Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. brewery and restaurant, and a sister location for High Street Deli, beloved for monstrously proportioned sandos and a 4:20 friendly vibe … Kreuzberg’s got a whole new bag! The coffee shop and cafe’s newly revamped menu is still poor but sexy (breakfast burritos, mini bratwurst corn dogs, tater tots) but also a tad bit more grown up. Try the new flatbread pizzas, topped Margherita style with fresh mozz, basil, and tomato or go classic style with sausage, bell pepper, red onion, and white cream sauce. There’s also refreshing acai bowls brought over from recently closed Bowl’d, Belgian waffles, and even a Croque Madame: ham steak with Swiss cheese on brioche bread, grilled and topped with béchamel sauce and a fried egg (665 Higuera St.).

hello, farewell Tables, turned: Carlton 2.0. A new restaurant has moved into the historic Carlton Hotel in downtown Atascadero:

The Carlton Restaurant and Grille (yes—a restaurant of the same name operated there until closing in 2010). You can now order up American style burgers, sandwiches, steak, salads, and pasta dishes while marveling at the fact that 2010 was nearly a decade ago … Tears in my hummus: Natural Cafe has abruptly closed its doors after 13 years in downtown SLO. Known for its healthy ethos and laid-back vibe, this will truly be a dramatic blow to the veg-loving community. That said, there are seven other locations still operating on the Central Coast, including Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, and Goleta … What turns you on? We just heard that new restaurant On Bar has opened in Paso Robles at the old Villa Creek location. What’s on the menu, besides Paso wine? Pecan encrusted coconut halibut, smoked baby back ribs, and a range of steak cuts to choose from, including slowsmoked prime rib (onbarpaso.com).

NourishiNg They want YOU: Nonprofit GleanSLO, which saves unused fruit and veggies and donates them to the needy, is on the hunt for passionate volunteers who aren’t afraid to get in there and pick. Currently, harvest leaders are needed (those extra special folks who lead groups of volunteers during harvests at backyards and farms alike). If you want to learn more about how you can help save the planet and banish hunger at the same time, email gleanslo@slofoodbank.org … Earth Day weekend (April 21 to 22) means the return of the Cambria Chili Cook-Off and Car and Motorcycle Show plus Earth

Day celebration at the Greenspace Creekside Reserve. Sample chili from the best cooks around for $10 and vote on your favorites (learn more at visitcambriaca.com) … Speaking of Cambria, mark your calendar for April 27, when Cambria’s Harmony Cafe and J Buckley Theatre host a unique musical performance with a dash of aloha. Dine on delicious Italian eats while jamming out to Hawaiian music and a hula show (for reservations, call (805) 927-3871). ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain is preparing for Earth Day by eating as many plants as she can.

H ayley’s P icks New home on The Range

By now, everyone from the Los Angeles Times food editor to your grandma has heard of The Range. If you live in SLO County, you’ve probably come to respect the tradition of dining at this beloved Santa Margarita dinning destination: the long horns perched above the door, the high lonesome wails of classic country, the satisfaction of a cold Lone Star beer or a fancy Paso wine. The unassuming country joint with the truly upscale “honky-tonk French fusion” menu has been around for more than 10 years now serving up topnotch steaks, lamb, and that addictive Dragon’s Breath appetizer (Google it; recipes are out there). But did you know

owners Jeff and Lindsay Jackson have taken on a new Santa Margarita venture? It’s all been pretty low key up till now, because—well—the Jacksons don’t have much need for formal advertising. Thanks to word of mouth, you might already know that the couple bought the tavern across the street. But did you know that the new space, dubbed Rosalina, has been open for beer and wine since last summer? Named after Jeff’s momma and inspired by the chef’s childhood spent on a SoCal farm, this place is just as casual feeling as The Range, but with an equally casually priced menu. Mexican food (more aptly, “barrio soul food”) is in the works, as the kitchen is still currently under construction. That said, you can totally stop by for a cold one and some hot small town gossip most nights of the week. Expect a Latin twist on this drink menu: Wine imported from Spanish speaking countries, Mexican beers, fruity sangria, and spicy micheladas, too. Chew the fat with the locals and watch the sleepy Santa Margarita sun sink behind those mesmerizing mountains. Just remember, these are “the good old days,” before the inevitable hype comes rolling in. Won’t it be nice to tell your grandkids about Rosalina, back when it was “just a bar and a dream”? 22302 El Camino Real, Santa Margarita; hours are Sunday from 3 p.m. to close, Thursday from 3 to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 3 p.m. to midnight. Call (805) 365-7118 for more information. ∆ It took 30 years, but Hayley Thomas Cain just discovered her love for micheladas, which is totally embarrassing.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on this property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: In what circumstances do you tend to be smartest? When do you tend to be dumbest? Testify at freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): Aries statesman Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. He wrote one of history’s most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence. He was an architect, violinist, inventor, and linguist who spoke numerous languages, as well as a philosopher who was knowledgeable about mathematics, surveying, and horticulture. But his most laudable success came in 1789, when he procured the French recipe for macaroni and cheese while living in France, and thereafter introduced the dish into American cuisine. JUST KIDDING! I’m making this little joke in the hope that it will encourage you to keep people focused on your most important qualities, and not get distracted by less essential parts of you.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your allies are always important, but in the coming weeks they will be even more so. I suspect they will be your salvation, your deliverance, and your treasure. So why not treat them like angels or celebrities or celebrity angels? Buy them ice cream and concert tickets and fun surprises. Tell them secrets about their beauty that no one has ever expressed before. Listen to them in ways that will awaken their dormant potentials. I bet that what you receive in return will inspire you to be a better ally to yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In the early 1990s, Australian electrical engineer John O’Sullivan toiled on a research project with a team of radio astronomers. Their goal was to find exploding mini-black holes in the distant voids of outer space. The quest failed. But in the process of doing their experiments, they developed technology that became a key component now used in Wi-Fi. Your digital devices work so well in part because his frustrating misadventure led to a happy accident. According to my reading of your astrological omens, Taurus, we may soon be able to make a comparable conclusion about events in your life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the fictional world created by DC Comics, the superhero Superman has a secret identity as a modest journalist named Clark Kent. Or is it the other way around? Does the modest journalist Clark Kent have a secret identity as the superhero Superman? Only a few people realize the two of them are the same. I suspect there is an equally small number of allies who know who you really are beneath your “disguises,” Gemini. But upcoming astrological omens suggest that could change. Are you ready to reveal more about your true selves? Would you consider expanding the circle that is allowed to see and appreciate your full range and depth?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Playwright Tennessee Williams once spent an evening trying to coax a depressed friend out of his depression. It inspired him to write a poem that began like this: “I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.” Now I address you with the same message, Cancerian. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m convinced you currently have more strength than ever before to bear the tremendous excitement of living. I hope this news will encourage you to potentize your ability to welcome and embrace the interesting puzzles that will come your way in the weeks ahead.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you finished dealing with spacious places and vast vistas and expansive longings? I hope not. I hope you will continue to explore big bold blooming schemes and wild free booming dreams until at least April 25. In my astrological opinion, you have a sacred duty to keep outstripping your previous efforts. You have a mandate to go further, deeper, and braver as you break out of shrunken expectations and push beyond comfortable limitations. The unknown is still more inviting and fertile than you can imagine.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between Dec. 5 and 9, 1952, London was beset with heavy fog blended with thick smog. Visibility was low. Traffic slowed and events were postponed. In a few places, people couldn’t see their own feet. According to some reports, blind people, who had a facility for moving around without the aid of sight, assisted pedestrians in making their way through the streets. I suspect that a metaphorically comparable phenomenon may soon arise in your sphere, Virgo. Qualities that might customarily be regarded as liabilities could at least temporarily become assets.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the coming weeks, I suspect you will be able to find what you need in places that are seemingly devoid of what you need. You can locate the possible in the midst of what’s apparently impossible. I further surmise that you will summon a rebellious resourcefulness akin to that of Scorpio writer Albert Camus, who said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger— something better, pushing right back.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1936, Herbert C. Brown graduated from the University of Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in science. His girlfriend Sarah Baylen rewarded him with the gift of a $2 book about the elements boron and silicon. Both he and she were quite poor; she couldn’t afford a more expensive gift. Brown didn’t read the book for a while, but once he did, he decided to make its subject the core of his own research project. Many years later, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries about the role of boron in organic chemistry. And it all began with that $2 book. I bring this story to your attention, Sagittarius, because I foresee you, too, stumbling upon a modest beginning that eventually yields breakthrough results.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 20 B.C., Rome’s most famous poet was Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known to us today as Horace. He prided himself on his meticulous craftsmanship, and advised other writers to be equally scrupulous. Once you compose a poem, he declared, you should put it aside for nine years before deciding whether to publish it. That’s the best way to get proper perspective on its worth. Personally, I think that’s too demanding, although I appreciate the power that can come from marshalling so much conscientiousness. And that brings me to a meditation on your current state, Capricorn. From what I can tell, you may be at risk of being too risk-averse; you could be on the verge of waiting too long and being too cautious. Please consider naming a not-too-distant release date.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Luckily, you have an inventive mind and an aptitude for experimentation. These will be key assets as you dream up creative ways to do the hard work ahead of you. Your labors may not come naturally, but I bet you’ll be surprised at how engaging they’ll become and how useful the rewards will be. Here’s a tip on how to ensure you will cultivate the best possible attitude: Assume that you now have the power to change stale patterns that have previously been resistant to change.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): May I suggest that you get a lesson in holy gluttony from a Taurus? Or perhaps pick up some pointers in enlightened self-interest from a Scorpio? New potential resources are available, but you haven’t reeled them in with sufficient alacrity. Why? Why oh why oh why?! Maybe you should ask yourself whether you’re asking enough. Maybe you should give yourself permission to beam with majestic self-confidence. Picture this: Your posture is regal, your voice is authoritative, your sovereignty is radiant. You have identified precisely what it is you need and want, and you have formulated a pragmatic plan to get it. ∆
