Compton and Paulding separated by 81 votes, recount in play

FILE PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

f the 4th District San Luis Obispo County supervisor race between Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding ends in a tie, it could be decided by a coin flip. Or a card draw. Or a straw pull. Or a recount. But they’re not there yet. About 1,000 ballots are still left to count, as of New Times’ press time, in the election to determine South County’s next supervisor and a swing vote on the Board of Supervisors. With 17,515 votes recorded, Compton, a conservative-leaning business owner from Nipomo, has an 81-vote edge on Paulding, a liberal-leaning attorney from Arroyo Grande. The next round of ballot counting was planned to take place on June 15 at 2 p.m. in the SLO County Clerk’s Office. “We knew this race would be close,” said Bob Nelson, a consultant for the Compton campaign, “but I don’t think anyone thought it’d be this close.” County election officials spent most of the week of June 11 processing outstanding ballots, which include late mail-in ballots, provisional ballots, ballots submitted under conditional voter registration, and damaged ballots. Due to the technicalities involved, Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong said the final stretch of counting is a slow and painstaking process. “It kind of comes to a screeching halt at this juncture,” Gong told New Times. Representatives from both the Compton and Paulding campaigns are present in the Clerk’s Office observing the ballot processing and counting. As ballots are processed, the campaigns are contacting voters whose signatures were missing or unverifiable, offering to help remedy the issues for their votes to count. “Both campaigns have been obtaining signed forms on behalf of the voter,” Gong said. “That’s taking place as we speak.” On June 12, Paulding sent an email blast to supporters requesting more donations to defray the campaign costs of the prolonged election,

DOWN TO THE WIRE The race for District 4 SLO County supervisor is still too close to call as of June 13. Incumbent Lynn Compton is ahead of challenger Jimmy Paulding by 81 votes, with about 1,000 ballots left to count.

indicating they could surpass $20,000. Paulding told New Times he would consider asking the county for a recount if Compton’s lead held. “I think it’s certainly a possibility, and I’m prepared for it,” Paulding said. “I haven’t come up with what number [of vote separation] would be a threshold.” Any registered voter in SLO County can ask for a recount, but they would be obligated to finance it unless the result flipped—in which case the county has to fund it. A recount must be requested within five days of Gong certifying the election. Gong noted that the winner is certain to be decided within the context of the primary and won’t be sent to the general election—barring a

literal tie. In the case of a tie, the procedure to break it is decided by the local election official, per election code. Gong recalled, with a chuckle, overseeing a tied election eight years ago between two candidates for the San Miguel Community Services District board of directors. The winner was determined by a random drawing of cards— the highest card won. “I shuffled the cards five times, cut it twice, and we spread all the cards out on the table between them,” Gong said. “They both drew their cards and one was the higher number. Maybe that’s what we’re going to do if we do have a tie vote. The card one was pretty good.” Δ —Peter Johnson

Cost of jail reform remains murky in SLO County budget

care services. While more than $300,000 of that money will go to paying for the jail’s newly hired chief medical officer, the budget does not specify how the remaining money will be spent. Part of that funding may go to contracting medical and/or mental health services to an outside company. While the county developed a request for proposal (RFP) and is accepting bids, Hill and Gibson said the board hadn’t seen the RFP, or the reports and evaluations used to create it, before it was released. “I think we got out a little too fast on this RFP before we decided what system needs to be in place,” Gibson said. County staff said that the board would still need to approve expenditure of the funds, including awarding any contract under the RFP, and expected to go back before the board for a “comprehensive” discussion about the RFP in late August or early September. The emphasis on expanding medical and mental health services at the jail was the result of public concern and outcry following a spate of inmate deaths at the county jail, most notably

As San Luis Obispo County prepares to pass a multi-million dollar budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year, the exact cost of reforms to medical and mental health services at the county’s jail remains unclear. During hearings on the county’s proposed budget, 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill and 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson both raised concerns about additional funding set aside to pay for promised reforms to the SLO County Jail’s health services, noting that it was still unknown how the bulk of that extra funding would actually be spent. “There’s a little discomfort I have with a kind of blank-check approach here,” Hill said at the June 11 hearing. The proposed budget transfers the responsibility of jail health care from the County Health Agency to the Sheriff’s Office, and allocates an additional $2.3 million from the county’s general fund to expand jail health

that of 36-year-old Andrew Holland, whose death after a 46-hour stay in a restraint chair led the to the county paying out a $5 million settlement. In addition to improving and expanding health services at the jail, the county also committed to participating in “Stepping Up,” a national initiative aimed at helping local governments reduce the number of mentally ill people in jail. At the June 11 hearing, County Budget Director Emily Jackson told the board that no allocations for specific resources for Stepping Up were included in the proposed 2018-19 fiscal year budget. “Development of some of the recommendations is going to be a collaborative process that we are currently engaging in,” she said. “We are going come back to your board with specific recommendations at a later date.” Jackson did note that the budget included funding for an additional 4.5 full-time employee positions within the county’s behavioral health agency to increase mental health services countywide, as well as the addition of 18 residence recovery beds. “Though that’s not specific to Stepping Up, it undoubtedly gets us closer to where we need to be in that respect,” she said. Both Hill and Gibson voiced the need to have a thorough public discussion about Stepping Up and the details of the extra funding for the jail, and to give the public more information about how the promised reforms will be implemented and evaluated. “We know we have work to do,” Hill said. “We have trust to earn back.” —Chris McGuinness

Cambria Health District tax to go on November ballot The Cambria Community Healthcare District (CCHD) unanimously approved putting a parcel tax measure on the Nov. 6 ballot at a June 13 special meeting. The estimated tax per parcel would be $35.04, which will be used for capital assets, ambulances, buildings, and equipment. If the measure is approved by a two-thirds vote in November, the estimated total tax collected per year is $236,800. Shirley Bianchi, secretary of the district board of trustees, brought an amended version of the parcel tax to the table to ensure the community that the funds will go straight to equipment and the district facility. “I would assume that those who opposed any taxes for any reason may make the same complaints referencing the CCHD parcel tax as they did the fire tax,” Bianchi said. The Cambria community voted against a fire tax in the June 5 primary election. Measure A-18, a tax of $62.15 per parcel owner, would have maintained current staffing levels at its fire department. Bianchi said that to avoid any confusion, her amendments to the health tax measure clearly state that the parcel tax shall not go to any salary or benefit increases to an employee or district board stipend. If the parcel tax is approved by the voters, it will have a sunset of six years.

Without the parcel tax, the district will not have adequate funding to replace aging ambulances or to repair, maintain, and upgrade district facilities. —Karen Garcia

RISE now provides shelter for domestic violence victims’ pets Individuals looking to escape domestic abuse in SLO County will now have a safe place to bring their pets, thanks to a grant from a national nonprofit organization. RISE announced that it received a $3,000 grant from the Sacramento-based RedRover organization to provide space for animals at its Atascadero emergency shelter. RISE is a nonprofit that serves victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and abuse. RISE Executive Director Jennifer Adams said that the grant allowed RISE to purchase cat and dog kennels for their emergency shelter, allowing victims seeking shelter to bring along their pets. “We are committed to providing a safe space for survivors, their children, and their pets to continue their healing journey,” Adams said in a June 11 press release. According the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 70 percent of domestic violence victims own a pet, and an estimated 71 percent of victims have reported that their abuser threatened, injured, or even killed pets. Up to 48 percent of domestic violence victims delay leaving their abuser out of concern for their pets, according to the coalition. “Offering pet-housing options helps families by removing a barrier to safety and allowing pets and people to escape abuse together,” RedRover’s website states. While many domestic violence victims own pets, few shelters are equipped to take in animals. Since 2012, RedRover has provided grants for safe housing for domestic violence victims’ pets to 65 shelters across the United States, include RISE’s shelter in Atascadero. While RISE now has a place for pets to stay, Adams said the organization still needs supplies to care for them, including cleaning supplies, food bowls, and other pet care-related products. Individuals interested in donating to RISE can contact the organization at (805) 2265400 or go to riseslo.org. —Chris McGuinness

Highway 1 to reopen in late July at mudslide site State officials are moving up the expected reopening date for Highway 1 at the site of a massive landslide that occurred more than a year ago. Construction on the quarter-mile stretch of roadway north of Ragged Point should be ready for travelers by the end of July—two months sooner than originally scheduled, Caltrans announced in a press release on June 12. Caltrans is building the highway across the top of the Mud Creek slide, which had buried the original road with 6 million cubic yards of dirt and rubble. The new roadway will be “buttressed with a series of embankments, berms, rocks, netting, culverts, and other stabilizing material,” the agency’s press release stated. Redirecting the highway over the slide will be cheaper and quicker than other options, like digging a tunnel. The May 20, 2017, mudslide was one of the largest ever in the Big Sur area, according to Caltrans, as it created 15 additional acres of coastline. The highway’s been closed to traffic for 13 months, impacting local residents and economies, including businesses in SLO County communities like San Simeon and Cambria. “By opening the highway sooner than expected, it will boost the many Central Coast communities affected by this major landslide,” Caltrans District 5 Director Richard Rosales said in a statement. Even after the highway reopens, Caltrans expects intermittent lane closures, as roadwork “continues for several months to finalize repairs.” —Peter Johnson

Grand jury says Oceano Dunes dust is a risk to ‘thousands’ The SLO County grand jury weighed in on one of the most controversial issues in South SLO County with a new report stating that dust kicked up from off-highway vehicles at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (ODSVRA) was a health risk to “thousands of residents” living on the Nipomo Mesa and in surrounding areas. According to the report, released June 12, the grand jury found that airborne dust ranging from moderate to hazardous

levels and exceeding state and federal air quality standards was often recorded at air monitoring stations on and near the Nipomo Mesa. The report stated that the particulate air pollution originates from vehicular riding activity on a system of sand dunes located in the recreation area’s Le Grande Tract. “The purpose of this report is to illuminate the history of the health risk to the public on the Nipomo Mesa and nearby communities and identify the most effective mitigation plan to reduce or eliminate it within the shortest possible time frame,” the report stated. The grand jury’s report comes after the SLO County Air Pollution Control District and California State Parks Off-Highway Vehicle Division reached an agreement on a proposed plan to mitigate the dunes dust issue. The agreement, approved by the APCD’s hearing board in April, set a goal for reducing particulate emissions by 50 percent and attaining state and federal air quality standards within four years of the plan’s approval. The agreement was reached after a contentious backand-fourth between the APCD and State Parks in 2017, when the former agency began a formal process to cite the latter for violations of dust mitigation regulations. The APCD and State Parks spent much of the last 10 years in an “adversarial” relationship over the dunes dust issue, the grand jury’s report noted, saying that the recent agreement was a sign that the relationship may have changed for the better. If the new plan fails, the grand jury called on the SLO County Board of Supervisors to step in and “act decisively” on the issue by “drastically restricting” riding on the Le Grande tract and facilitating the relocation of camping and riding areas to the southern end of the ODSVRA. “The Board of Supervisors has a moral and ethical responsibility to protect the health of the residents of San Luis Obispo County,” the report stated. The report made a total of nine findings and four recommendations related to the dunes dust issue. The Board of Supervisors, APCD and its hearing board, and the Lucia Mar Unified School District are required to respond to some of the report’s findings by Aug. 13. Δ —Chris McGuinness

OUT OF SERVICE A conflict between state and local regulations means that the only medical cannabis delivery service permitted by Arroyo Grande, Elite Care Enterprises, can no longer operate in the city.

Conflict between city, state rules leaves AG without a medical cannabis delivery service

C

ynthia Gonzales said she did everything right. When she and her business partner decided to start a medical marijuana delivery business in Arroyo Grande, they wanted to make sure everything was done by the book, including seeking a license to operate under commercial marijuana regulations passed by the City Council in June of 2016. One year later, their business, Elite Care Enterprises, got its permit and became the first and only cannabis delivery operation in the city. Just shy of one year after they began operating, Gonzalez now says she has to inform her customers, some of whom are terminally ill, that Elite Care will no longer be able to serve them. “We are done,” she said. “We can’t even go out to our patients now.” On June 5, Elite Care received a letter from the state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) notifying the company that its temporary state license to operate was revoked. The letter stated that the license had been pulled after the city of Arroyo Grande notified the bureau that Elite Care wasn’t authorized to operate in the city. City documents show that the shutdown of Arroyo Grande’s lone medical cannabis delivery service

occurred at the center of a complex and sometimes confusing nexus of local and state commercial cannabis regulations, leaving Elite Care unable to operate legally and causing the city of Arroyo Grande to nix its own cannabis delivery permit process altogether. In December of 2017, the bureau rolled out emergency regulations to cover a number of commercial cannabis activities, including requiring non-storefront retailers like Elite Care to have a physical premises they can conduct business from. According to emails between the city and the bureau, Elite Care applied for a temporary license from the state, using an address on Grand Avenue. However, Arroyo Grande’s cannabis regulations ban all commercial cannabis activities except deliveries within the city. “Under the city’s ordinance, no commercial cannabis activities other than delivery into the city have ever been allowed,” Arroyo Grande Community Development Director Teresa McClish said in an email to New Times. “At no time was Elite Care authorized by the city to operate a physical commercial cannabis premises within the city limits.” Gonzalez said that her company had been paying rent on the Grand Avenue

property for about eights months but was unable to use it. “It was literally just going to be a repository for the medicine,” she said. “It was very inconspicuous. It wouldn’t be open to the public, and there wasn’t even signage.” Still, after months of back-and-forth, the city sent a letter to the bureau on May 25 stating that, based on the circumstances, Elite Care did not have authorization to operate in the city. Because the state’s current cannabis regulations favor local control and require local authorization and licensure to obtain a state license, the bureau revoked Elite Care’s license. According to the city staff’s report, the city and state regulations are currently irreconcilable, and provide “no compromise” other than the “lengthy and resource intensive process” of amending Arroyo Grande permitting regulations. Instead, city staff recommended that the City Council modify the city’s regulations to rely on the state’s commercial delivery licenses while maintaining the ban on all

other commercial cannabis activity. This would essentially scrap the city’s delivery permitting process and allow any delivery service with a state license to deliver within the city. “Staff believes the city’s licensing process is duplicative and no longer necessary,” the staff report states. At a June 12 meeting, the council voted to do just that. The changes will not go into effect for at least another two to three months. If Elite Care meets the criteria under the new regulations, it could seek to get its state license back. The city’s current regulations allow deliveries from outside Arroyo Grande, but only if those businesses have received a delivery license from the city. As of June 11, Elite Care had been the only delivery service to get that license from the city. “They are hurting patients who are literally dying,” Gonzalez said. ∆ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

tanding between grapevines at the base of a hill, Chamisal Vineyards Winemaker Fintan du Fresne kneels down to pick up some top soil. “It’s dark and if you go down a bit, it becomes hard and you can squish it,” he says. This bloc of vines used to be contiguous, across the depression in the land to the top of the hill. It’s now separated by a road. “By splitting these blocs up by soil types, we’re able to save a hell of a lot of water,” he says. “We can really farm each of these blocs by soil type.” Brushing off his hands, du Fresne explains that the clay below the topsoil holds on to moisture, so these vines can be watered later in the year and for longer periods of time. As the land starts to slope upward, the soil type changes, becoming gravelly and loose. Water drains out of it quickly, so the grapes on top of the hill need less water more frequently. Du Fresne says the goal is to cut water use in half. It’s just one of the things Chamisal is focused on to keep its practices sustainable. The vineyard is one of 280 that have been Sustainability In Practice (SIP) Certified since 2008. Celebrating 10 years of third-party vineyard sustainability assessments in 2018, SIP introduced the winery certification program in 2016/2017. Chamisal and Niner Wine Estates in Paso Robles are currently the only two wineries with the SIP stamp of approval. Chamisal and Niner operate under similar philosophies. Sustainability is a way of life, and SIP certification is just proof that they are doing things right. “I think farming sustainably should be mandatory,” du Fresne says. “If there’s one thing that’s important to what we do, it’s the piece of land we’re on. … We’ve got to do everything we can to protect it.” An independent, third-party assessment that does regular audits is important, though, according to Andy Niner, president of Niner Wine Estates. “We would probably operate similarly regardless, but what SIP does for the consumer is invaluable,” Niner says, standing outside of the LEED Certified winery along Highway 46. “You need a third party that isn’t biased … to put a stamp on it.” That stamp comes with a culmination of 25 years of continuing to change and keep

pace with best practices, according to SIP Certified Manager Beth Vukmanic Lopez. In 1996, a group of farmers got together and wrote the first self-assessment for vineyard development, looking at how the vineyard treats its people, the land it’s on, and whether it is a viable business. As “green” claims started to flood the marketplace, the farmers reformatted the self-assessment so it could work for a certification. “If they were going to claim being sustainable for wine grapes, they thought, ‘We better come up with a set of rules,’” she said. SIP launched its pilot program in 2008 with 3,700 acres of vines between Monterey and Santa Barbara counties. Now, there are 43,000 acres of SIP Certified vines in California and Michigan. The organization has certified more than 36 million bottles of wine (each with at least 85 percent of the grapes sourced from a SIP Certified vineyard), and a few more wineries are interested in getting their winemaking operations certified. “The whole idea behind that is that sustainability doesn’t stop in the vineyards,” Vukmanic Lopez said. Sustainability isn’t easy, as Niner Winemaker Molly Bohlman, who helped write the winery certification program for SIP, can tell you. “It took me about a year to put all the documentation together, but the certification is worth it,” Bohlman says of the work she put into getting Niner’s winery SIP Certified. Standing on the third story of the gigantic, cool, cement-walled winery, she says the certification looks at everything from water and energy use to cleaning solutions, windows, and low-flush toilets. But sustainability isn’t just about reducing resource use. Andy Niner says sustainability is a plan for the future: treating employees in a way that makes them want to stick around, treating the land in a way that enables it to last, and growing in a way that can be passed on to the next generation. “We’re in it for the long term,” he says. “I want to pass this business on … and if you’re not constantly figuring out how to do things better, you’re not going to be around.” ∆ Reach Editor Camillia Lanham at clanham@newtimesslo.com.

GETTING TO WORK Cayucos Advisory Council members John Carsel and Cheryl Conway are seeking tighter regulations on vacation rentals in Cayucos. The small beach town has the most vacation rental licenses per capita in SLO County.

On the [vacation] market From Paso to Pismo, SLO County grapples with the vacation rental industry as tourism booms BY PETER JOHNSON • PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

L

ast month, SLO Cal, the tourism marketing arm of San Luis Obispo County, announced that in 2017, visitors spent a record $1.75 billion in the area. The dollar value of all the money spent on accommodations, food, retail, arts, entertainment, and recreation by tourists is up 21 percent from just five years ago. To some community members, the statistic illustrated a simple fact hiding in plain sight: SLO County’s clout as a globally competitive tourism destination continues to grow. “SLO County has been discovered,” said Susan McDonald, chair of the North Coast Advisory Council, a citizen board representing Cambria and San Simeon to the county. “Countywide, there’s a huge promotion of tourism … and we’ve had an increase in tourism.” With one of SLO’s other top economic drivers, the Diablo Canyon Power Plant, soon to leave the area, the growth of the tourism sector is an encouraging sign. At least that’s the way SLO Cal sees it. The agency that uses funding from an assessment on the lodging industry to market the region to the world is cognizant that the health of SLO’s future economy is in many ways dependent on its efforts. “We’re thinking about how tourism can help,” said Brooke Burnham, vice president of marketing at SLO Cal. “It’s not going to solve that void [left by Diablo Canyon]. But how can tourism help backfill what we’re going to lose in that way?” As tourism booms, and the need for that boom intensifies, one of the fastergrowing components of the industry is under the regulatory microscope. Vacation rental homes are drawing the attention of local residents and officials as they become an increasingly popular lodging choice for visitors, while they simultaneously test the tolerances of the communities they’re in. “You’re putting a commercial use in a residential area, and that creates a

conflict immediately no matter what. That’s the problem,” said John Carsel, chair of the Cayucos Advisory Council, a group that has taken an adversarial stance toward vacation rentals in the small beach town. Vacation rentals have become a contentious and vexing issue, “not just here, but all up and down the coast,” said Toni LeGras, owner of Beachside Rentals in Cayucos. And LeGras is right. The California Coastal Commission regularly wrestles with vacation rental issues, making decisions that range from approving or denying county and city ordinances that regulate vacation rentals, to considering individual requests for permits to operate vacation rentals. While the Coastal Commission on paper supports vacation rentals as a low-cost way to visit the coast, the issue has become a sticky one for the agency, just as it has for the local areas it oversees. “We need to balance our needs for access to the coast with the need to protect our coastal communities,” said Erik Howell, a Pismo Beach City Council member and coastal commissioner. “My concern isn’t so much the impact [vacation rentals] are having, it’s the impact they could have if their growth is allowed to continue unfettered. Eventually, you start getting negative impacts on what a community really is.” Throughout SLO County, residents and officials are grappling with how to manage the tradeoffs of this burgeoning component of the tourism industry.

vacation rentals in SLO County. The official count is likely a little lower, since the city of Paso Robles lumps its homestay and vacation rental licenses together. But the “real” number is likely much, much higher if you include unpermitted vacation rentals in the total. In the first year of a county contract with consultant Host Compliance to monitor unlicensed vacation rentals, 611 property owners were found advertising without a license. Online platforms like Airbnb have made it easier for homeowners to advertise their properties and for travelers to find them. And with 13 percent of SLO County homes already vacant—one of the highest rates among counties in the state, according to the SLO Council of Governments—the vacation rental market appears to be blossoming with the technological revolution. Between 2010 and 2018, the

number of licensed vacation rentals spiked 250 percent. “[Vacation rentals] are definitely part of the lodging mix,” noted Burnham of SLO Cal. “It’s an expected amenity from travelers.” The communities where licenses have proliferated are some of the most well-known tourist destinations. Paso Robles (406), Cambria (362), Cayucos (285), Morro Bay (253), and Oceano (82) are the areas with the most licensed vacation rentals. Creston (6), San Simeon (7), Grover Beach (15), and Santa Margarita (16) are at the bottom of the list. Factoring in population, Cayucos has one vacation rental license for every nine residents, and Cambria has one for every 17. In Morro Bay, it’s a license for every 43 residents. In Oceano, one per 89 residents. The areas with higher concentrations of vacation rentals are, by and large, the ones where residents and officials are pressing for stricter regulations. Morro Bay currently has a moratorium in place on new vacation rentals. SLO County passed a vacation rental and events ordinance in 2016 for the Adelaida area (near Paso Robles) that established permitting and operation requirements. Residents in Cayucos and Cambria are pushing for more restrictions. “The problem we see is we can become a town of nothing but vacation rentals,” said Carsel, of the Cayucos Advisory Council. “That’s why you’re getting the opposition.” While some see the licensing data as an indication that vacation rentals are oversaturating communities, industry advocates claim the numbers are somewhat misleading. They point out that 40 percent of the local vacation rentals don’t rent at all. In addition, some of the active rentals might have already been active before they got licensed. Jeff Edwards, a local real estate agent who represents coastal vacation rental owners and applicants, believes the inactive licenses can be explained by homeowners or brokers who obtain them to boost the property value and residents who get them merely to prevent houses around them from becoming rentals. The latter theory, which was also noted in a 2015 grand jury report on the subject, applies in Cayucos, Cambria, and Avila

A “vacation rental” is a home rented out for a period of fewer than 30 days that’s not the owner’s primary residence. It’s different from a “homestay,” where a property owner rents a bedroom or two on a short-term basis in a home that he or she lives in. According to county and city licensing data, there are as many as 1,900 licensed

Beach, where vacation rentals are regulated by distance requirements, so that neighboring houses can’t all become vacation rentals. “When we talk about numbers and so forth, there’s no real increase in the available vacation rentals in Cambria and Cayucos,” Edwards argued. While it’s difficult to quantify the exact growth rate of the county’s vacation rentals, the tax revenue paid by the market is climbing, according to data provided to New Times by local governments. In 2017, vacation rentals generated $3.7 million in transient occupancy taxes (TOT) for the county and cities, more than double what they yielded in 2012 at $1.8 million. By region, the North Coast generated the most TOT last year at $1.6 million, followed by North County at $938,582, and South County at $861,732. With the industry growing countywide, each community and local government is handling it differently. Some are rehashing debates battled out years ago.

Coastal controversy

LeGras, owner of Beachside Rentals, keeps a stack of binders in her office off Cayucos’ main drag that hold years of research on vacation rentals. One of the first things she notes, while holding a 20-year-old newspaper clipping, is that the issue isn’t new to the North Coast. Vacation rentals have been a subject of community debate since the 1990s, which resulted in an ordinance for coastal vacation rentals in 2003. “We’ve been here for a long time,” said LeGras, who employs a small team of locals and manages about 30 vacation rentals. “It’s been a back-and-forth. A few years ago, Airbnb came on board and created a lot of issues for all of us.” Airbnb’s emergence on the scene put LeGras and other local property managers at a competitive disadvantage, she said, as the county struggled to hold the website and its users accountable for listing unlicensed homes and not paying taxes. It also alarmed Cayucos residents who noticed the growth. LeGras feels the backlash, and she’s concerned that an overreaction by policy makers will hurt the local economy.

“To me, what they’re trying to do is change [Cayucos] by eliminating something that’s been part of this community since the ’60s,” she said. Carsel and Cheryl Conway, both Cayucos residents on the community advisory council, acknowledged that they are seeking stricter limits on the industry. In a back-and-forth at a recent county Board of Supervisors meeting, Carsel told Supervisor Lynn Compton that he’d prefer to see no vacation rentals in Cayucos. He added that he knew it wasn’t realistic, given that there are already 285 licensed. “I always look at Cayucos as the last funky beach town left alive in California,” Carsel told New Times. “People will pay to come to Cayucos because of that community. It’s the age-old story of do we destroy the community that we like to see?” Carsel and Conway’s primary concerns are preserving the residents’ quality of life and sense of neighborhood character. Noise disturbances and a lack of parking are the primary issues, and they say neither are easily enforceable. Conway said she doesn’t have a problem with every vacation rental, only the bad apples.

“There are vacation rentals that people don’t even know are vacation rentals because the people who come in are respectful to the community and are coming in with their families,” Conway said. “Then you have those who come in and it’s hell week.” Both Cayucos and Cambria are grappling with a similar policy problem that’s put pressure on the system. The towns are saturated with vacation rental licenses to the point that homeowners seeking new licenses find themselves located too close to an existing one. A provision in the ordinance, though, allows them to apply for a minor use permit to get exempt from the setback rule (at least 50 radial feet from another licensed property in Cayucos and 150 feet in Cambria). Those appeals are trickling into the county supervisor chambers at a higher clip in recent years. Residents like Carsel and Conway and 2nd District County Supervisor Bruce Gibson want to hold firm on the principle of the rules, while applicants and their representatives question the fairness of rejecting new licenses while nearly half of the existing ones aren’t being used. “To address the preemptive licenses and to avoid the commodity value of these licenses, I think our county should consider [making] licenses sunset with the sale of the property,” said Edwards, who’s represented several of those applicants to the county. Both sides of the issue seem to recognize that the current setup has flaws. The Cayucos and North Coast advisory councils say they’re in the process of opening new discussions about what tweaks could be made. “We’re going to let the community drive that and come up with something that’s fair to the residents and the business community, but ultimately protect residents,” Conway said. “Do we know what that is yet? No.”

New rules for a new era

In his time as a coastal commissioner, Howell says he’s noticed how vacation rental debates tend to be unique to the communities that they’re coming out of. “Different communities have different tolerances,” Howell told New Times. “Like, San Diego is a big enough place where they can have a lot of vacation rentals and it’s not really going to change what San Diego is. If Pismo Beach has 1,000 vacation rentals, suddenly we’re not really Pismo

REPRESENTING RENTALS Beachside Rental owner Toni LeGras discusses vacation rentals in her office on Cayucos Drive. LeGras, who manages about 30 vacation rentals, is concerned about how tighter regulations could impact the local economy.

Beach anymore. We’re something else.” In May, Howell cast a vote on the Pismo Beach City Council to pass an ordinance that all but bans vacation rentals in the city. They’re allowed in single-family homes where the owner lives on-site at least six months of the year. The decision provoked suspicion among critics that the hotel industry, which has lobbied nationally against Airbnb and is critical to Pismo’s economy, is playing a hand in those rules. Howell dismissed that and pointed back to the issues of neighborhood wellness and identity. “That’s an easy narrative, but it’s not really true,” he said. “The people interested in Airbnb, it’s a different market by and large.” Clint Pearce, president of Madonna Enterprises, said that vacation rentals do cut into the hotel industry’s share of the lodging market—by about 10 percent he estimated—but added that he doesn’t see it as a zero-sum game. As both sectors provide quality experiences for tourists, the long-term outcome should be more visitors and business for everyone. His main concern is that vacation rentals follow local ordinances, get licensed, and pay taxes like hotels do. But when cities like Pismo Beach or Morro Bay adopt restrictive ordinances, some feel that the result is restricting the public’s access to the coast. “Vacation rentals are an affordable option for families,” LeGras said. “I grew up in the Central Valley; it’s polluted and overcrowded. People come here to stay with their families. You want to stop that?” Vacation rentals aren’t just a focus of the coast. Paso Robles has been workshopping a draft vacation rental ordinance for more than two years without adopting anything. City Community Development Director Warren Frace said the sticking point is whether to set density or distance restrictions, like in Cayucos and Cambria. SLO city decided years ago to ban vacation rentals, but allow homestays. Arroyo Grande does allow vacation rentals, while Grover Beach plans to tackle the issue in the upcoming year. Another argument for limiting vacation rentals is to alleviate pressure on the long-term housing market. Every unit set aside as a vacation rental is a unit that can’t be occupied by a SLO County resident looking for housing. Supervisor Gibson argues this point, saying that cumulatively it has “a profound effect on housing affordability.” During his campaign for re-election this year, he floated a tax on second homes. Skeptics of that theory counter that homeowners who rent out vacation homes often aren’t interested in renting their property long term, since they themselves often like to vacation at the property. LeGras compares efforts to halt the Airbnb phenomenon to attempts to ban other subversive commodities like rock ’n’ roll music or marijuana. Ironically, she points out, the city of Santa Cruz did briefly ban rock ’n’ roll in 1956. Santa Cruz also passed an ordinance last year to ban non-hosted vacation rentals. The Coastal Commission approved it in April. “When the public has spoken like that, just like with rock ’n’ roll and marijuana, it isn’t going away,” she said. “Any prohibition—did it stop people from doing it? They’ll just find other ways to do it, and the county doesn’t get the tax. The neighbors don’t get accountability. They get nothing, and people still continue to do it.” ∆ Staff Writer Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Social media connections I n 2015, Seneca Jacobson joined a Facebook group for parents with children who suffer from seizures. She’s a service coordinator for TriCounties Regional Center in San Luis Obispo, working with families with special needs. At the time, her son suffered from seizures. Living in Cayucos, Jacobson said, she attended groups and spoke with other parents in the area about her experiences with her son but she wanted to reach out to more parents. She joined the group wanting to learn about how other parents addressed their children’s seizures. She didn’t know she would find friendship with a parent who lives in another part of the world and an adventure, which she began on June 11. “I could just tell from the stuff she was posting that she was a mom on a mission to find anything that she could to help her child,” Jacobson said. Jacobson is talking about her new friend, Zhohra Rhomani, who lives in Morocco. Rhomani has a 9-year-old son, Nizar Khalid, who suffers from seizures, cerebral palsy, and scoliosis. She said Rhomani was asking a lot of questions about seizures because it was severely disrupting her son’s sleep. “I could tell that she was going through a pretty big ordeal as Nizar wasn’t sleeping much and had a lot of tantrums, so I was trying to help her in that regard. I tried to connect her with resources that might help him behaviorally,” Jacobson said. The more Jacobson and Rhomani messaged each other through Facebook and email, the more Jacobson learned that her friend didn’t have the same kind of medical resources and support that she did. She said Rhomani also expressed frustration with not being able to connect with another family or parents who understand what it’s like to raise a child with special needs. “I realized that Nizar needed some adaptive equipment and there is a nongovernment organization called Gateway Medical Alliance that Zhohra was trying to get him a standard and basic wheelchair,” Jacobson said. Gateway Medical Alliance is an international organization that provides medical resources to people in need. Jacobson and her friend Lina Wolff, a local physical therapist, contacted Gateway Medical Alliance to advocate for Nizar so he could receive an adaptive wheelchair. The organization was able to send an adaptable wheelchair to Nizar; the only downfall is that the wheelchair doesn’t support Nizar’s spine. Once again, Jacobson reached out to Wolff, who was able to get an adaptive stroller for Nizar. The stroller is a Convaid Trekker, a lightweight wheelchair that offers reversible seating, easy adjustments, and a folding capacity for travel. Jacobson boarded a plane to Morocco on June 11 to deliver the stroller and finally meet her friends. “I would like to have this as somehow more than just a single experience,” Jacobson said.

SENDING AID Nizar Khalid is a 9-yearold boy living with seizures, cerebral palsy, and scoliosis with limited access to health care.

She wants to figure out a way to create a group or organization that connects international families in need with medical resources. Jacobson also wants to create a support group for families like Rhomani’s, who are looking to connect and share their experiences. In the meantime Jacobson has created a YouCaring online fundraiser for Nizar as he still needs a corset brace to counteract his spasticity and muscle contractures.

Opinion Guns aren’t the problem, society is I n a recent edition, Kathy Riedman (“It’s up to you,” May 31) purported that German Lopez’s article in Vox, “I’ve covered gun violence for years. The solutions aren’t a big mystery,” proves gun violence is caused by guns and America’s love of them. One of his first contentions is that America has a much higher rate of homicides compared to other countries. Many of the countries on his list don’t even allow citizens to possess firearms any longer, so the comparison is not impressive. Also, homicides don’t indicate whether the gun was wielded by a perpetrator of an illegal action, or an armed citizen protecting himself. Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) conducted extensive surveys about defensive gun uses (DGUs) but it never publicized the fact that it did such research or what the results were. The CDC isn’t offering an explanation for this mysterious silence. But the findings from this research in the 1990s found more DGUs than the anti-gun media wanted to admit to. The results come close to the findings of Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck. His study, which has been harshly disputed in pro-gun-control quarters, indicated that there were more than 2.2

HODIN

million such DGUs in America a year. Lopez fails to mention that in all but one of the recent 27 mass shootings by young men (no women), the boys were raised without their fathers. This is a significant social problem for our society, which people do not want to touch, as most people are supportive of alternative lifestyles, non-traditional families, divorce, etc. One of the boys had a father who died, but the other troubled young lads were from broken or single-mother homes. Lopez contends that the mass shooters are not mentally ill—what would he label them? Normal? Normal people do not go around shooting others. That’s just plain silly and defies common sense. I could go on and on, but the point is that guns are not the problem (has an NRA member ever been a mass shooter or gone on a crime spree?). Cars kill more people. Should we outlaw cars? According to CDC records, in 2016 there were approximately: 40,000 motor vehicle-related deaths; 39,000 firearm-related deaths; and 64,000 drug overdose-related deaths. Tesa Becica Atascadero

Trumpflation! P eople are worried that President Donald Trump’s economic policies could overheat the economy. When he was elected, the stock market exploded. Now, many economists fear runaway inflation could harm our economy. Gas prices are on the rise, groceries will be next. The real danger is we’ll find inflated numbers everywhere. Tucson could become Threecson, and may even reach Fourcson. You think you’re in Tennessee, but you might end up in Elevenessee, or even Thirteenessee. People in Florida could find themselves in Fliveida, or heaven forbid, Tlenida. It’ll be hard getting mail if the numbers in our address keep going up with inflation. Lincoln’s address could very easily become, “Five score and eighteen decades ago.” Furthermore, no one would be on time, as 5 o’clock became 6 o’clock without anyone even realizing it. Then, what if the economy cannot sustain its wild ride? We could find ourselves in another depression. What was once wonderful could turn negativetwoderful. We’re living in 2018, but it could shrink to 1929. Your investments, the ones that had recently doubled, could zero. General Motors would be demanding money from you instead of paying you a dividend. People in Billings, Montana, would be paying their bills with cents on the dollar. You may be driving down the road in a Cadillac and find yourself in a Yugo. How depressing! Things could get unpredictable. You go to pay for gas and it could be $10 a gallon one minute and 29 cents the next. (What

a bummer!) You go for a haircut and you don’t know if you’ll come out a hippie or a baldy. A trip to the mall could become dangerous. We’d all end up missing our Target. Rather than shopping at Ross to “Dress for Less,” you could end up naked! “Hard 2 4get” could become “hard 4 2get,” or just “hard 2 get.” So as we contemplate this wild economy, our feight could be our feleven, fwelve, or even ftwo. You jump on a scale and instead of 150 pounds you are suddenly 129.95, or even 169.95. Of course, we would no longer refer to our weight, as it became our weighteen. Imagine car license plates affected by inflation. Phone numbers could increase or decrease at the market’s whim. In the end, instead of being fortunate, we could find ourselves zeroturnate. Instead of making America greight again, Trump’ll be making America grone again! Kim Pendleton Nipomo

we can do nothing about” we should therefore make no effort to curtail carbon dioxide emissions since CO2 contributes significantly less to the greenhouse effect than water vapor. While the 90 percent quoted somewhat overstates the actual fraction of water vapor’s contribution to the greenhouse effect, the main point is that Mr. Byrne misunderstands the role of both water vapor and carbon dioxide in global warming. As we have all observed, dew condenses on grass in cool mornings and evaporates as it warms. As humans add CO2 to the atmosphere that additional warming leads to increased evaporation, hence an increase in atmospheric water vapor. This strongly amplifies the warming caused by additional CO2. That’s why climate scientists refer to CO2 as the “control knob” of global warming. This water vapor “feedback effect” amplifying CO2 warming is a well-known and observed fact. There is plenty of room for discussion on what policies for dealing with human-caused climate change make the most sense in our free market economy. But without a factually correct scientific understanding of the problem, such discussions are pointless. I extend an offer to meet with Mr. Byrne and anyone else truly interested in a fact-based understanding of basic climate science. Dr. Ray Weymann Atascadero

Life’s still swell for Mr. President I had to laugh—no, guffaw—at Gary Wechter’s claim (“500 days of joy and gratitude,” June 7) that Donald Trump has “given up the best years of his later life” for us, foregoing “jet-setting across the world, living in luxury, spending time with the ‘swells.’” Perhaps Mr. Wechter believes that U.S. presidents are served prison rations, live in rustic shacks, and socialize with slum residents. And perhaps he has not been paying attention: As of April 2018, Trump has gone to his Mar a Lago resort 17 times, visits that cost millions of taxpayer dollars. He has spent time at his own golf courses 40 times. He is transparently using his office to increase his and his family’s riches, having foreign dignitaries stay at his properties, for example, as

well as Ivanka Trump’s securing of trademarks in China and other foreign countries. Regarding “swells,” is there a position on Earth other than the American presidency in which one is more likely to hang out with world leaders and can command the attention of nearly anyone rich and famous? As to Trump’s “energy and savvy,” one must wonder at a President who, instead of daily intelligence briefings, receives them a few times a week, insisting that they be only a few pages long or, better yet, orally delivered with graphic illustrations. Trump believes that he does not need to put in much work on background knowledge on an issue, because he makes the right decision “with very little knowledge other than knowledge I [already] had … because I have a lot of common sense and business ability.” He has not read a single presidential biography. Briefers report that it is difficult to hold his attention. Trump does not seem to be sacrificing much at all. If anything, the presidency is conferring even greater prestige and wealth on him than his prior life. Only now, we are paying for it. Johanna Rubba Grover Beach

slathered-up diatribe about civility. Al warms us up by throwing a bone about Roseanne and how she might have been under the influence of drugs when she went on her Valerie Jarett tirade. However he wants us to believe the Samantha Bee is much more culpable because she intended to make her remarks about Princess Ivanka. Do you think we forgot about Ted Nugent calling Hillary a “fuckin’ cunt” ? For his shaming, he got a trip to the Oval Office. Do you think we forgot about the Trumpettes who wore the “Hillary is a Cunt” T-shirts at most of his campaign events? Do you believe that little Donny Jr.’s tweeting about Hillary’s slavery ring was forgotten as well? How about his “adoption” meeting with the Russians that was held in Trump Tower with Jared Kushner and (soon-to-be serving a life sentence) Paul Manafort? Hillary Clinton spent her entire adult life serving this country, and the Trumps have spent theirs stealing and lying. Yes, you are correct about one thing; Trump is responsible for the divisiveness and degradation of the human condition in this country; and he plans to continue doing so right up to the time that he is impeached, convicted of treason, and sentenced to exile in Russia where lying, cheating, murdering, and stealing are a way of life.

Don’t be shy If you want to see change at the Oceano Dunes, then ask for it

O

ver the last three decades, as environmental science and law have evolved, the California Department of Parks and Recreation has remained chronically out of compliance with the environmental protection requirements of its Coastal Development Permit for the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (ODSVRA). At this point, it’s clear that State Parks can’t continue to operate the ODSVRA—a big chunk of environmentally sensitive coastal habitat—the way it has been, and that its current modus operandi is bringing a rising threat of litigation from groups like mine and legislation from Sacramento of the “if you won’t take care of the problem, we’ll do it for you” variety. So it’s no surprise that at this historical moment, State Parks has 1) finally embarked on a Habitat Conservation Plan, 2) finally semi-capitulated in its long fight with the Air Pollution Control District over reduction of the toxic dust from its off-road playground, and 3) hit upon the idea of a public works program. But old habits die hard, and after 35 years of hostile intransigence, there should be no more benefit of the doubt accorded to State Parks. It should be

LETTERS from page 16

Right on, for once I rarely agree with Al Fonzi, simply because he’s so often on the (wrong) side of the 1 percent. However, I do agree with Fonzi in regard to Samantha Bee (“An obscene personal attack,” June 7). Just like Roseanne Barr, Bee substituted vulgarity/racism for humor and thought her job title allowed her to get away with. Let’s work on both sides to restore civility to public discourse and keep both these folks off the comedy circuit until they clean up their respective acts. Bonus: If our political comediennes (and male counterparts) are civil, it will make it harder for our insulter-in-chief to tweet stupid stuff. Todd Katz San Luis Obispo

Give us a break In his opinion piece, “An obscene personal attack” (June 7), Al Fonzi makes excuses for Roseanne Barr’s extremely racists tweet: It was late at night; she was drug-induced. Sorry, but most people, including the makers of Ambien, do not accept those excuses. He also shockingly writes that Roseanne touched upon the “third rail of politics” with her tweet, as if her despicable comment should be something to include in our political

assumed that the agency will use these multiple processes as another opportunity for misdirection and hand waving, with the end goal of claiming that what they should be doing is more or less what they’ve been doing, because they’ve been doing it for so long. The sudden flurry of habitat conservation, dust control, and public works plans, all walled off from each other in separate planning silos, are suggestive of State Parks’ go-to move over the last three decades at the dunes: Invite all parties into a bureaucratic morass, convene hundreds of hours of meetings, produce reams of paper, and emerge with deals and compromises that subsequently implode or otherwise become nonoperational, leaving the status quo intact. Lather, rinse, repeat. State Parks has always struggled with the fact that its operation of the ODSVRA must conform to the county’s Local Coastal Plan (LCP), ultimately overseen by the California Coastal Commission. The proposed public works program is being proposed as a way to remove the Coastal Commission from its ongoing oversight role at the Oceano Dunes. As far as the Local Coastal Plan and its environmentally protective policies are concerned, the Sierra Club spent years in court arguing against the belief of State Parks and the off-road lobby that the LCP somehow didn’t apply to the dunes. We prevailed on that

debates. He then expresses his grave concern over the rise of inappropriate criticisms of our political figures and drones on and on while conveniently failing to specifically describe the horrible treatment of President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton. If anyone has been a victim of unrelenting, public “obscene personal attacks” it has been these three. (Way beyond the pale. Where was your outrage then, Al?) To Al’s credit, he does blame Trump for our current “toxic political landscape.” I agree wholeheartedly. It’s been 500-plus days of torturous hell. I’m praying that his presidency will end sooner rather than later, to yes, help save our society. Putin would like nothing more than to see it fall apart. His weapon of choice has obviously been Trump ... and what a weapon he has been! The question is: How long will the blind loyalty of his supporters last? Kathy Riedmann Los Osos

At the public meeting on the public works plan held in Arroyo Grande on May 22, I told the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division managers assembled at the dais that we can see why a plan that they believe will finally render their off-road playground immune to oversight would hold great attraction for them.

RESPOND

TO AN EMERGENCY? • Knowing how to respond should a disaster strike is an important step to keeping yourself and your family safe. Do not dial 9-1-1 unless you are in need of immediate lifesaving assistance. • First identify if you need to take protective actions by tuning to a local radio or TV station for emergency information. Emergency officials will use the Emergency Alert System (EAS) to direct protective actions such as evacuations or sheltering in place. It is important to only take action if it is directed. Evacuating when it is not ordered may put you or others in harm’s way. • Only pick up children from school if you are directed to do so. • Evacuation routes and shelters will also be broadcast on the EAS. • During a large emergency, the county will activate a phone assistance center to answer questions regarding the emergency and actions you should take. • For more information, contact the County Office of Emergency Services at (805) 781-5011, or visit www.slocounty.ca.gov.

The Shredder

Take a chance W hat if the super contentious election for San Luis Obispo County’s 4th District Board of Supervisors’ seat came down to the flip of a coin? Believe it or not, that could actually happen if there’s a tie. It’s written into the election code. And there could actually be a tie. The pendulum swing of the majority on the county’s Board of Supervisors could come down to a coin toss! Mind. Blown. We can get the coin specially made out of wine, strawberry tops, and cannabis shake from South County with a little Oceano Dunes dust sprinkled in for good measure. Then a local, unbiased (hah!) third party artist can stencil Jimmy Paulding’s fresh face on one side, and Lynn Compton’s incumbent face on the other. Recently re-elected county ClerkRecorder Tommy Gong can flip it while standing in the spot that will someday far in the future, maybe, hold the Nipomo Skate Park. Then, no matter whose face lands on top, everybody whose candidate lost will scream bloody murder that it’s a freakin’ conspiracy, man! Listen, kids. Not every unfair thing in this world was created by a cabal of mischievous evildoers who don’t have the same ideology as you. I mean, maybe that’s the way it is for most things, but not every thing. Even Fox News knows when to call a dick-tater a dictator.

If you South County voters would get your ideologies lined up, we wouldn’t be in this mess. You guys apparently can’t decide whether you’re more Tea Party than Progressive down there (because everything in the middle has apparently been erased from the American political system), so we’re waiting for the slow hand count of remaining and potentially contested ballots. Ballots that weren’t filled out correctly (Seriously!? It’s bubbles. We’ve been filling those in since elementary school.), signatures that don’t match up with what was turned in at the time the voter registered (face palm), and unsigned ballots (read directions, people!)! And then we will most likely have to wait through a recount, for which Jimmy’s already fund fishing because he’s unofficially down by 81 votes out of the more than 17,000 ballots that have been counted so far. But if it’s even-Steven and you’re feeling cagey about the coin-flip thing, there are other options. For instance, eight years ago, it was a deck of cards that chose who would sit on the San Miguel Community Services District board. Aces high, twos low, who comes out on top, nobody knows. A 2017 Virginia legislative race came down to names on paper dropped in to a handcrafted ceramic bowl, according to NPR. A 2015 Mississippi race was decided by drawing straws. A 2012 city council race

in Texas? A roll of the dice. Not happy with those options either? I’m sure we could lobby Tommy to do something a bit more exciting. Beauty contest? I mean South County does have the two best looking options as far as Board of Supervisors candidates go. The rest of the county really needs to pull themselves together. Come on! It’ll be fun. We can figure out who wears the best American Flag-themed eveningwear and what their favorite day of the year is. And just because the Miss America Pageant got rid of the swimsuit competition doesn’t mean we have to. Cage match? Quick draw? Staring contest? Might go to Lynn. ATV race around the dunes? Design competition? Recreational cannabis smoke-out? Maybe Jimmy. Actually, forget recreational. Let’s talk about medical cannabis, first. You know, the thing that’s been legal for 20-plus years and is still a hot mess. But we don’t have to leave South County for this one. Instead we can zoom in on Arroyo Grande, home to a very fickle City Council and city staff that can’t be bothered to make right what it has done oh so wrong. Elite Care Enterprises, which the city permitted in 2017 to provide medical marijuana delivery services to its residents,

can no longer do so. The city wrote a letter to the California Bureau of Cannabis Control saying Elite Care was no longer authorized to operate in the city. You know how Elite Care found this out? After the state notified the delivery service that it had revoked its license. Wow, guys! You couldn’t tell Elite Care before you sent a note to the state? That’s sneaky, sneaky. It’s not like Elite Care’s owners are underhanded crooks from the Emerald Triangle. Cynthia Gonzalez and Tami Peluso could be your grandmas, but nicer because they won’t yell at you for getting high! And it’s not like Gonzalez and Peluso were trying to be tricky. They were trying to play by the rules! The state requires licensed cannabis businesses to have a physical address. Elite Care found itself a spot to set up shop and started paying rent—but waited for city approval to move in. Instead, the city had a meltdown. It apparently believes it’s OK for pot and money to be running around its streets in a rickety jalopy but not under security, lock, and key in an actual building. The city is overturning its ordinance authorizing medical marijuana delivery services to be permitted in the city and defaulting to state licensed medical delivery services. Unfortunately, Elite Care no longer has a state license. I wonder if the city will help rectify that. Turns out AG would rather keep pot on the streets than off. ∆ The Shredder doesn’t understand stupidity. Send comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

Mavis Staples headlines the closing night of the Live Oak Music Festival

O

h mmm I know a place/ Ain’t nobody cryin’/ Ain’t no body worried,” Mavis Staples sings on “I’ll Take You There.” She might as well be singing about the Live Oak Music Festival—the place to be to usher in summer and relax with fellow music lovers near Lake Cachuma this Friday, June 15, though Sunday, June 17. Staples will close out the festival on Sunday evening in what promises to be an amazing show. Staples’ voice is as stellar as her life—a full, rich, complex, and celebratory thing. The 78-year-old started her professional career at age 11 as part of her family band led by patriarch Roebuck “Pops” Staples and featuring her siblings Cleotha, Yvonne, and Pervis. Starting in 1950, the mostly gospel group sang in churches and on a weekly radio show. Their first big hit was 1956’s “Uncloudy Day” on the famed Vee-Jay label, and they were given the moniker “God’s Greatest Hitmakers.” Thanks to Pops’ relationship with Martin Luther King Jr., The Staple Singers became the musical voice of the mid-’60s Civil Rights movement, covering songs such as Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s N O R T H C O A S T S LO C O U N T Y

Between 1971 and ’75, they scored a string of Top 40 hits such as “I’ll Take You There,” “Let’s Do It Again,” and “Who Took the Merry Out of Christmas?” The Staples were a talented family, but Mavis stood out and began releasing solo albums in the late ’60s on Epic Records and Curtis Mayfield’s Curtom label. Later, in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Prince would release two Mavis Staples solo albums on his Paisley Park label. In the 2000s, she landed on Alligator Records. Lately, she’s been on ANTI-Records. Over the years, this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Blues Hall of Fame inductee would work with the likes of Bob Dylan (Who asked her to marry him. She said no!) to The Band, Ray Charles, Prince, Nona Hendryx, George Jones, Natalie Merchant, Los Lobos, Dr. John, and the list goes on. Her voice has been sampled by a ton of hip-hop acts too.

FREE SUMMER CLASS Love Shouldn’t Hurt! Calling all people pleasers, over-givers and over-performers. Do you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, or angry? Does your relationship run hot and cold? Do you give up who you are in order to be with him? Are you terrified of rejection or being alone? I invite you to attend this lecture and get the tools to go from a woman that loves so much that it hurts, to a woman that loves herself enough to stop the pain.

in capital black block letters, and an expressionless plain white costume mask,” according to his bio, but “more recently, he has switched to a plain white bucket no longer bearing the KFC logo. He also incorporates nunchucks, robot dancing, and toy trading into his stage performances.” One thing that hasn’t changed is he’s still a guitar shredder! Iconic folk heroes The Kingston Trio play the Fremont on Saturday, June 16 (9 p.m.; all ages; $25 to $40 at eventbrite.com and Boo Boo’s). This year marks the group’s 61st anniversary, and though the three original members have passed on (except for Bob Shane, who at 84 no longer performs), the current lineup keeps it in the family with Josh Reynolds—son of original member Nick Reynolds—performing with Mike Marvin and Tim Gorelangton. Expect the hits, such as “M.T.A.,” “Tom Dooley,” “Scotch and Soda,” “Greenback Dollar,” “A Worried Man,” and more.

Pace’s new video for his song “Undertow” revels in a dark blues with a gritty Nick Cave vibe.

EMPLOYMENT

ARTS EDITOR Join Our Team! New Times in San Luis Obispo is looking for its next arts editor, but we’re not looking for just any art-ogling, content-wrangling, copy-editing someone. Are you sick of editing or regurgitating press releases about nothing exciting day after day? Or maybe it’s those damn list things—you know the ones: “Top 10 ironic places to find hipsters painting lemons on top of bicycles.” Or maybe it’s just not being able to put the time and reporting into a story that deserves it: the weeks and repeated meet-and-greets that give a story what it needs to ripen into the nuanced, spellbinding narrative it’s dying to be. Can you find the unassuming local artist who’s about to blow a hole in the status quo? Do you know what it means to find the culture that matters to a community—the stuff that gives a population its heartbeat, its soul? That sweet spot where culture, politics, art, and society collide into a massive chaotic hurricane of beautiful expression. Can you nurture that ability in somebody else and help coax it out of his or her stories? If so, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for: an arts editor who isn’t afraid to manage a section and the people who come with it, someone who isn’t afraid to take on the tedious, the tenuous, or the talented. That quiet giant who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to San Luis Obispo County. It’s not all about vineyards, rolling hills, and pounding surf brushed with light, ethereal watercolors (although that’s definitely here). It’s about that human element and where creativity lives. Can you find it? Let us know if you’ve got what it takes. We dare you. Send résumé and clips to Cindy Rucker at crucker@newtimesslo.com. New Times is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

Get bubbly at Gopher Glen

Learn to make your own natural and pure soaps in small personal batches at the Gopher Glen Organic Apple Farm on June 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Students will learn how to follow soap recipes and how different ingredients can affect soaps, and can take their own bar of soap home with them. The class is limited to 25 people for an intimate and more detailed experience. The class costs $45 per person, and participants will also be treated to refreshments, fresh fruit, homemade cider, and a look at the new farm store, which will not be open until the weekend of June 30. See the Gopher Glen Organic Apple Farm events page on Facebook for more details.

Awaken the spirit within you

Every fourth Friday of the month, intuitive artist Rachel Hurd hosts an artistic reading at the Halcyon Store post office. Intuitive artists channel angels, spirit guides, or just energies or feelings from the client, themselves, or elsewhere, into art, specifically for the client. Hurd will take clients through the process of meditating and setting intentions for their session. Then Hurd will draw images that come through for her, including animal guides and spiritual images. These sessions start at $30 for 30 minutes and increase by $1 per minute. Each portrait is unique depending on the client and can offer many different insights. Beginning dates for these events are June 29 and July 27. See Intuitive Art By Rachel’s events page on Facebook for more details.

Experience the Dana Adobe magic

From 1 to 4 p.m. every Sunday through the end of July, enjoy free, guided tours of the Dana Adobe. The Dana Adobe is the oldest home in San Luis Obispo County. The tour will provide guests with an educational experience and will explore the culture, history, and ecology of early 19th century America, specifically focusing on the Rancho era in California. Donations are welcomed, but these tours are free. Donations will go toward conservation of the historic Dana Adobe and will fund educational programs, and other events provided by the DANA Adobe Cultural Center. See the Dana Adobe events page on Facebook for more details. Δ —Delany Burk

Central Coast Comedy Theater to open performance space in downtown SLO

A

fter two years of making the people of San Luis Obispo County laugh, Central Coast Comedy Theater owner Sabrina Pratt is putting it all on the line. But she needs a little help. With a solid history of teaching the art of improv and making audiences laugh at shows at Kreuzberg Coffee Co. in San Luis Obispo and at The Libertine in Morro Bay, Pratt is now ready to find the theater group its very own home in downtown SLO. “I’ve been steadily working toward this,” Pratt said. “It’s just getting going, and we’re getting our feet under us.” Pratt, with the help of friends and investors, has saved $25,000 toward securing a space in the downtown area to use as a 50-seat black box theater and rehearsal space. She’s asking the community to meet her halfway. A GoFundMe campaign Pratt recently launched is seeking to raise an additional $25,000. She’s hoping to meet that goal by the end of June and open the new theater space sometime this summer. “We don’t have a comedy club at all in San Luis Obispo,” Pratt said. “I want to bring in names that people recognize. It’s just good for performing arts to have professional artists coming through.” Pratt, who cut her teeth in improv comedy at the Second City Theater in Chicago, went part time this year at her job teaching drama at Atascadero High School in order to focus more on Central Coast Comedy Theater. This month will mark some of her last days as a teacher as Pratt looks to focus on expanding the theater full time. The new venue will serve as a performance and rehearsal space for the theater’s ensemble improve group. Pratt will also host comedy classes and workshops there. She also plans to make the space available for other performing arts groups in the area. “The more we have going on in the arts, the more people come,” Pratt said. “We’re building our market together.” Pratt said the theater group will host a fundraiser show on June 20 with comedian Cary Farrow headlining. The venue is still to be determined. Farrow will also teach a workshop at Ignite Movement Studio in Morro Bay during his time on the Central Coast. Pratt said she hopes that people in SLO County will see this as a chance to be a part of something everyone can build together. “This is an opportunity to invest in the community actively,” Pratt said. “It’s a priority for me to make it open for other groups. I want to share this space. It’s really important to me to have a collaborative arts community. It’s an opportunity to invest in artists who are developing. It’s something different than anything that’s being offered.” Δ Arts Editor Ryah Cooley is laughing out loud at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

Sins of the mother W This nuclear family is bubbling over with secrets, and this supernatural story takes cues from Rosemary’s Baby, The Omen, and The Exorcist—all worthy influences.

weaving of both fright and family. Glen This really is fine filmmaking. Annie’s miniatures mirror her life. She uses the dioramas as a kind of journal or diary, chronicling everything around her. With her gallery breathing down her neck to see her progress before her next show, it just increases her stress. I don’t want to burden Aster with the label “Hitchcockian,” but he’s got some important foreshadowing going on (and a penchant for including Hitchcockesque tension-filled music—think raw-nerved composer Bernard Herrmann-lite). When Charlie is lightly rebuked by her teacher for not doing her assignment, a bird crashes into the classroom window. Charlie is later seen picking it up and mutilating it in a way that gains importance as the tale continues. In another scene, Peter’s teacher is talking about a Greek tragedy and asking his students what would be more tragic: having free will and making the bad choices that lead to the tragedy, or not having free will, making the tragedy inevitable? That’s at the heart of this story: Is what befalls Annie and her family preordained?

Stadium 10, Park Baltasar Kormákur (Contraband, 2 Guns, Everest) directs this true story of survival about Tami Oldham (Shailene Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Sam Clafin), two free-spirited lovers and avid sailors who set off to cross an ocean only to encounter a catastrophic hurricane that leaves their sailboat in ruins and Richard gravely injured. Can Tami find the will to save them? Imagine if romance novelist Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, The Choice, The Best of Me) decided to write a disaster-at-sea story and you’ll have a pretty good idea about Adrift. It opens post disaster, as

Tami awakens in the hold of a sailboat half submerged in water, a large cut on her head and badly bruised. She’s frantically searching for her fiancé, Richard, but she also knows she has to pump out the water before her boat sinks. From there, the film proceeds to flash back five months to when Tami meets Richard. The film repeatedly moves through time, cutting between their romance and her struggle to survive and help a severely injured Richard, who can do nothing to help Tami besides provide advice and emotional support. The romance part of the film is pretty sappy, and the disaster part of the film is fairly harrowing, but compared to what I consider the gold standard of lost-at-sea films, Robert Redford’s phenomenal All is

Lost (2013), Adrift is just OK. There’s plenty of drama, and Tami’s struggle to survive and save Richard and herself is certainly potent, but the film relies too much on emotional manipulation. As a true story, it’s an amazing tale of survival, but as a film, it’s good but not great. What really saves the film is a raw, powerful, and committed performance by Woodley. Director Kormákur knows his way around seafaring disaster—his The Deep (2012) is about a fisherman trying to survive after his boat capsizes off the coast of Iceland—but his CGI storm in Adrift isn’t as impressive as the CGI of The Perfect Storm (2000). It’s all these little things that undermine Adrift: The romance feels too easy, even with the argument about whether the

camera tricks to make the real world look like a miniature. Is Annie no more able to control her destiny than the tiny figures she creates for her dioramas? If you’re like me, you won’t be frightened by the film’s supernatural elements, but you will be wowed by the skillful execution of a dread-filled tragedy. Anna The great thing about a film like this is that it can work for folks outside of its obvious reach; while I may not be ripe for the obscure world of the occult, I certainly can enjoy a film about the fray— the mind obscured by loss and loneliness, tricks we play on ourselves because of lack of sleep, lack of understanding, lack of self in the most frightening way. All of these characters become live nerves eating away at each other— distant, then close, and then completely alien to one another. It’s a world of seclusion, and I must say the house they inhabit breathes both the grandiose and the claustrophobic that sets an ambiance of unknowing. While it didn’t grab me in the on-the-edge-of-my-seat sort of way I dream of, Hereditary hits with a boom and a bang, eerily scary and with a haunting quietness that hisses even in its final reveal. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

REVIEW SCORIng FULL PRICE .... It’s worth the price of an evening show MATInEE ........ Save a few bucks, catch an afternoon show REnTAL .......... Rent it STREAMIng.... Wait ’til netflix has it nOThIng ........ Don’t waste your time couple should accept $10,000 and two first-class return tickets from San Diego to Tahiti in exchanges for piloting the luxury sailboat to California for Richard’s friends, a rich British couple; the CGI is good but not great, leading to distraction and pulling viewers out of the drama; and there’s a twist near the end that won’t be a surprise for those familiar with Tami’s adventure, but that might seem like a gimmick or trick to those—like me—who were unfamiliar with her tale. It’s a film that’s worth seeing, and if you’re a fan of the genre, hit a matinee, but I think I would have been pleasantly surprised to rent this film at Redbox or even wait for it to show up on a streaming service.

HOTEL ARTEMIS What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Matinee

Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Stadium 10, Park, Galaxy In this dystopian thriller set in Los Angeles in the year 2028, Jodie Foster (The Silence of the Lambs, Contact, Panic Room) plays The Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only hospital for criminals with the assistance of Everest, a bulky, intimidating orderly played by Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Spectre, Blade Runner: 2049). In anticipation of the biggest riot the city has ever faced, Nurse and Everest seem well prepared for the worst of circumstances, ready to attend to any and all needs of their niche clientele. But as the night progresses, their confidence wears thin, partly due to the impromptu arrival of the mysterious Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum, The Fly, Jurassic Park, Independence Day) the city’s most powerful crime boss. With a concept of this stature, it’s hard to believe Hotel Artemis isn’t a spin-off of an already ongoing franchise or based off of another property. The nicknames first-time director Drew Pearce (whose screenwriting credits include Iron Man 3 and Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation) designates to each of his characters, for instance, sound like they were lifted straight from the pages of a graphic novel or the line-up of a Mortal Kombat-esque fighting game. Nurse, Everest, and Wolf King aside, the rest of the ensemble is made up of the hospital’s patients and referred to only by the names of which rooms they stay in (to keep their real identities anonymous amongs each other). Each

Pick

room of the Artemis is themed (think Madonna Inn) and the trend seems to be vacation destinations. The guests include Waikiki (Sterling K. Brown, The People v. O.J. Simpson), a master thief, Acapulco (Charlie Day, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Horrible Bosses, Pacific Rim), an illegal arms dealer, and Nice (Sofia Boutella, The Mummy, Atomic Blonde), a professional assassin. We don’t really get backstories, but their collisions with each other throughout the night reveal enough about what makes them tick. Although I’m giving Artemis a matinee, as it’s definitely a lot of fun but far from perfect, I actually recommend seeing it late at night (if ever). It’s destined to become a film many will discover on the Syfy channel at 2 a.m. on a weekday— the definition of achieving cult status nowadays. What Artemis succeeds at best is echoing those bombastically violent, futuristic satires of the late ‘80s, especially the ones from director Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop, Total Recall). It’s a lost genre, minus the remakes, and I hope Artemis helps resurface it. (97 min.) —Caleb Wiseblood

Morse is a sight to behold. Seriously, it’s like your billfold came to life and started arguing about the rights of man. Much of the action of the Revolutionary War happening in the middle act is not seen in John Adams, and why would it? Adams was overseas in Europe for much of that time as a diplomat, so the show focuses on his struggles with diplomacy and being away from his family, and Abigail’s trials at home with the kids, hearing cannon fire across the Boston bay. Later, during Adams’ presidency, divisive partisanship rears its ugly head, cleverly illustrated by Adams, a federalist, and Jefferson, a rebellious Republican, whose friendship withers away over differing opinions. There are also great moments of Adams’ famously fiery rage at his cabinet, largely inherited from Washington, including a wonderfully harsh berating of Alexander Hamilton (Rufus Sewell) that ends with a perfect, “Good day sir!” from Giamatti. While the show may try to paint Adams in a softer light than he might deserve, it’s also bold in exploring his weaknesses, like the trials he put his family through, including his estranged son Charles Adams. Whether you think presidential politics is too crazy these days, or you’re hopelessly addicted to the drama of the news cycle, John Adams is a fun look back at what it means to be commander in chief in a time when people were doing it for the first time. It’s also a beautiful cinematic experience with a compelling musical score, so if you can’t make time for this show, well, sir or madam, I say to you, good day! Δ —Joe Payne

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Rental Where’s it showing? The Palm From Director Dominic Cooke (The Hollow and Crimes) and writer Ian McEwan (Atonement) comes the drama On Chesil Beach, based on McEwan’s best selling novel. The story centers on a young couple (Saiorse Ronan, Lady Bird, and Billy Howle, The Sense of an Ending) from drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962 in and around Oxford, England. Following the pair through their charming first stages of romance, audiences see the lovers through to their wedding night and the aftermath over the next several decades. Guys, I’m just going to say it. This movie is a big, fat bummer. I love me a period piece, all things British, and even a good cathartic cry that comes with watching a real tearjerker of a movie. Be warned, there is no resolution or even a sense of emotional release for viewers of On Chesil Beach. If nothing else, it’s an interesting character study in different kinds of love outside of the socially accepted norm, sexuality, past trauma, and our limitations as human beings to effectively communicate our wants and needs. After a happenstance meeting, new graduates Florence (Ronan) and Edward (Howle) are smitten and inseparable, despite Florence coming from a family of means and Edward coming from a struggling middle-class family, with a mother who suffers from memory loss due to a tragic accident. Florence sweetly and persistently forms a relationship with Edward’s mom anyway, through art. Meanwhile Edward adoringly watches Florence, an accomplished concert violinist practice with her quartet. McEwan and Cooke only drop a handful of tiny breadcrumbs here and there to alert their audience to the tragedy that is to come, with most centering on Florence. We see Florence

In another scene Florence’s shoulders visibly tense up as her father places a hand on her back by way of greeting at the dinner table. A distraught Florence and her younger sister read a book aloud together that describes the physical logistics of sex between a man and a woman. And when a member of her quartet asks who Edward, Florence’s fiancée at this point, is, she brushes him off and doesn’t really answer. If nothing else, On Chesil Beach makes a good case for people redefining love and life on their own terms, while acknowledging the sad truth that sometimes even love isn’t enough to make things work.

RBG What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm RBG is a must-see documentary chronicling Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s improbable life and career, superbly highlighting her heroic litigation in the 1970s to overturn laws that discriminated by gender, her tenure on the Supreme Court that’s been defined by her scathing dissents, and the ways in which she’s inspired a new generation of women, becoming a cultural phenomenon at the ripe age of 85. Beyond those highlights, RBG offers a poignant portrayal of Ginsburg as a person, her reserved and steely yet sweet temperament, and her genuinely beautiful marriage. Filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen really capture Ginsburg’s humanity through interviews with her, her friends, and family members, which add a valuable layer of depth to the documentary. Ginsburg, a Brooklyn native, entered Harvard Law School in 1956 as one of nine women in a class of 500. She juggled her coursework with caring for both her baby and her husband, who had fallen ill with cancer (but ultimately survived). After graduating, she struggled to find law work as a female professional, despite being at the top of her class. Ginsburg eventually became a professor at Columbia University, where she pioneered a class on

gender discrimination. In the ’70s, Ginsburg argued a series of discrimination cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. Here, West and Cohen manage to make what could have been a dry rundown of court cases compelling and dramatic. They tracked down the plaintiffs on these cases, who had faced gender-based discrimination ranging from unequal pay to unequal benefits as military service members. RBG weaves original audio from Ginsburg’s oral arguments with commentary from Ginsburg and others to drive home the historical significance of those cases. Almost singlehandedly, Ginsburg changed the legal landscape for all women in the country. RBG begins and ends with exploring her legacy, particularly among the newest generation of Americans. As the Supreme Court turned more and more conservative in the early 2000s, Ginsburg’s dissenting opinions became her signature and drew attention from young progressives. At 85 years old today, her spunk and sharp intellect are widely adored. T-shirts labeled “Notorious RBG” have become a hit, and goofy web images with her face imprinted on various superheroes have gone viral on the Internet. You’d be hard pressed to find a more important living American icon than RBG, and this documentary proves it. (97 minutes) —Peter Johnson

The film also stars Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, a smuggler; Thandie Newton as Tobias’ wife Val Beckett; Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra, Han’s childhood friend; Paul Bettany as crime lord Dryden Vos; Jon Favreau as alien Rio Durant; and Linda Hunt as the voice of Lady Proxima.

good guys and the bad guys, not to mention some double crosses and surprises. In the same tradition of Episodes IV through VI, Solo offers up a classic space Western. It’s not going to win any prizes for originality, but for Star Wars nerds, reverence for the series pays off here as we see the little bits of Han’s backstory we’ve learned from the original films play out. I was wholly entertained. Frankly, I wasn’t sure about Ehreneich as Han. I grew up watching Harrison Ford and I couldn’t imagine anyone else in the role. There is a passing resemblance between the young Ford and Ehreneich, but instead of doing an impersonation of Ford as Han, Ehreneich makes the character his own. Glover, on the other hand, seems intent on channeling Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, but he does it so well, it’s a treat to watch. Glover’s star is certainly shining brightly right now. He was great as the host of Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago, and his music video for “This is America” has people talking. These two characters are interesting enough and the actors have so much natural chemistry together that I would happily see another film with the pair. The story ends in a way that’s begging for a sequel, and I’d love to see Lando and Han meet for another adventure. Solo is basically a popcorn movie— uncomplicated, emotionally one note, and with little more than entertainment in mind. It’s not the kind of film that sticks with you or challenges viewers in any way, but if you’re looking for an engaging space romp, I think Solo delivers. Be warned, however; it’s one of those rare films with a higher rottentomatoes.com critic rating (71 percent) than audience score (59 percent), so not everyone has liked the film as much a I have. If you’re the rare person who’s new to the Star Wars franchise, you’d be better off starting here rather than the joyless Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Solo at least knows how to have fun.

JURY OF OUR PEERS Jury duty may seem like an inconvenience, but the experience can be rewarding.

We have instructions from the judge and all the evidence, and with a little organization, we hold that evidence up to the scrutiny and ask ourselves if it is enough to prove, without reasonable doubt, that Di Sineo is guilty. Our deliberations are respectful and thoughtful, and I believe we leave that room feeling that we made the right call after careful consideration of the evidence. We find Di Sineo not guilty on seven of the 10 charges, and guilty on three of them. In a time where so much of our interactions with our fellow American citizens consist of arguing with one another on the internet, it seems like a happy miracle of sorts that a group of 12 relative strangers can come to a

unanimous agreement about anything, let alone a criminal case that touched on some divisive issues such as harassment and gun ownership, as Di Sineo’s case did. In a world were we seem to always be busy with something, it’s easy to look at the jury duty summons in the mail and grumble in frustration about how it might disrupt your life and begin thinking of a convincing excuse to try and get out of it. But I’d suggest that you answer that summons with an open mind and give being on a jury a shot. Why not do your civic duty and engage in that fascinating and very human process. I know I’m glad I did. Δ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

Libertine Avila Beach offers a dozen beers, crowlers, and a spunky vinyl soundtrack

S

o Janis Joplin, Dick Dale, and Keith Richards walk into a tap room. There is no punchline. This is simply the reality of Avila Beach’s newest hangout, brought to you by the friendly, funky folks at Libertine Brewing Company. Enter this sunny space and you’ll likely find Libertine Founder Tyler Clark pouring beers and slinging stories (ask about the vintage 1960s short board on the wall, or the collage featuring the stars of Home Alone, Elton John, and Snoop Dogg). With two successful locations in Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo—plus a Santa Maria packing and aging facility crammed to the gills—Clark hasn’t had too much time to brew these days. Still, he’s got time to get back to perhaps his second-favorite job: spinning fat stacks of vinyl while his customers sip. “It’s not too shabby,” Clark says of Avila Beach, with its calm waters, iconic pier, and ridiculously perfect weather. With a dozen taps featuring Libertine’s dynamic small-batch wild ales, a shelf full of beautiful bottles wrapped in rebellious labels, and two screens simultaneously playing surf videos and disc golf YouTube clips, this taproom is all about getting back to basics. “It’s small, one person behind the bar,”

Now, wineries are coming to us,” Clark says. That’s not all that’s coming to Libertine. There are new customers and new friends, too. They are travelers and locals, some of whom are discovering these unique brews for the very first time. Throughout the interview, people continually walk by the large windows, peeking in, curious. The sound of surf guitar and laughter is hard to resist. This is what happens when you find a flash of something brilliant on the beach. Not quite a sand dollar or a starfish—but a warped yet lovely piece of sea glass. A message in a bottle. “Anywhere we go, we aim to add our FLAVOR continued page 52

News Nibbles No student should go hungry: Cuesta College has opened a food pantry, and it’s already seen more than 400 visits in the past few weeks. The Cougar Food Pantry, located on the SLO campus, offers a convenient stop for food insecure students (Cuesta College campus is also a Food Bank distribution site). There are a variety of foods available to feed these young minds, including canned tuna, beans, quinoa, and other nonperishable items. The food pantry is open to currently enrolled students on Mondays from 2 to 4 p.m., Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon, Wednesdays from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (located in room 5305; go to cuesta.edu for more info) … Just as Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards in SLO was preparing to release its new 2017 albariño, a rare white peacock flew into the vineyard. A local Edna Valley couple found the peacock wandering on their property and gave the bird to the winery, adding to Kelsey’s already famed peacock flock. The white bird, aptly named “Albariño,” (Al for short) now calls the winery grounds home. See for yourself (and taste the new albariño offerings at kelseywine.com). ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain believes all students should go to class feeling well fed and fueled.

Frosé all day

“Rosé all day” is a cute phrase to throw on a bumper sticker, but how does one actually achieve this very real Millennial goal? I’ll tell you how! Head down to Seeds on Garden Street in downtown SLO where—gasp—you can find healthy-ish frozen wine drinks mixed with local rosé wine, fresh pressed juices, bubbly, and, yes, even nutrientpacked kale. Magical “frosé” slushies range from agave, mint, and strawberry to pineapple and mango (all contain rosé, so you can get a buzz while you bolster your immune system). More of a mimosa person? “Pressed Mimosas” come in all manner of flavors and colors: the No. 1 comes with apple, lime, strawberry, and local bubbly; No. 2 is a mix of apple, celery, cucumber, kale, lemon, parsley, romaine, spinach, and local bubbly; and No. 4—the most intriguing of the lineup (because of its deep black color)— features honey, lavender, lemon, and activated charcoal! All come garnished with an edible flower, so you can feel as glowy as you look (or maybe that’s just the alcohol). Yes, you’ve entered a whole new summer of love. ∆ Hayley Thomas Cain is confused by healthyish cocktails, but that won’t stop her from trying them all.

* Maximum Volume and Weight per garbage can: 35 Gallons / 40 pounds MISCELLANEOUS CHARGES – ALL CUSTOMERS: Returned Check Fee: $35.00 each BASIS FOR THE PROPOSED RATE INCREASES The Proposed Rate Increases are necessary for the Garbage Service to continue to provide safe and reliable solid waste removal, transportation and disposal services to the citizens of California Valley CSD. The increase is requested are due to increasing operational costs. Several factors have contributed to these increased costs, including, but not limited to, the rising costs associated with the operation of the Garbage Service, increased costs associated with operation and fuel for vehicles, ongoing maintenance, increased labor costs, and increased costs associated with meeting more stringent State and Federal regulations. ANNUAL ADJUSTMENTS TO PROPOSED RATE INCREASE The District provides that revenue derived from rates should reasonably be expected to generate sufficient revenues to provide for Garbage compensation as calculated in accordance with the "City of San Luis Obispo Rate Setting Process and Methodology Manual for Integrated Solid Waste Management Rates". The Proposed Rate Increase Resolution, to be considered by the District Board of Directors on 5-22-2018 _, would authorize the District, without conducting a majority protest hearing, to adjust solid waste disposal rates annually based on findings: • That the requested increase is limited to the Garbage Service increased costs of providing services consistent with the City of San Luis Obispo's Rate Setting Process and Methodology Manual for Integrated Solid Waste Management Rates; and • Does not exceed the prior twelve (12) month percentage change in the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers, as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1450 14TH ST, LOS OSOS, CA 93402 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $212,861.39 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. 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: Many of us try to motivate ourselves through abusive self-criticism. Do you? If so, maybe it’s time to change. Testify at freewillastrology.com.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): My Aries acquaintance Tatiana decided to eliminate sugar from her diet. She drew up a plan to avoid it completely for 30 days, hoping to permanently break its hold over her. I was surprised to learn that she began the project by making a Dessert Altar in her bedroom, where she placed a chocolate cake and five kinds of candy. She testified that it compelled her willpower to work even harder and become even stronger than if she had excluded all sweet treats from her sight. Do you think this strenuous trick might work for you as you battle your own personal equivalent of a sugar addiction? If not, devise an equally potent strategy. You’re on the verge of forever escaping a temptation that’s no good for you. Or you’re close to vanquishing an influence that has undermined you. Or both.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have caressed and finessed The Problem. You have tickled and teased and tinkered with it. Now I suggest you let it alone for a while. Give it breathing room. Allow it to evolve under the influence of the tweaks you have instigated. Although you may need to return and do further work in a few weeks, my guess is that The Problem’s knots are now destined to metamorphose into seeds. The awkwardness you massaged with your love and care will eventually yield a useful magic.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Whether you love what you love or live in divided ceaseless revolt against it, what you love is your fate.” Gemini poet Frank Bidart wrote that in his poem “Guilty of Dust,” and now I offer it to you. Why? Because it’s an excellent time to be honest with yourself as you identify whom and what you love. It’s also a favorable phase to assess whether you are in any sense at odds with whom and what you love; and if you find you are, to figure out how to be in more harmonic alignment with whom and what you love. Finally, dear Gemini, now is a key moment to vividly register the fact that the story of your life in the coming years will pivot around your relationship with whom and what you love.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Congratulations on the work you’ve done to cleanse the psychic toxins from your soul, Cancerian. I love how brave you’ve been as you’ve jettisoned outworn shticks, inadequate theories, and irrelevant worries. It makes my heart sing to have seen you summon the self-respect necessary to stick up for your dreams in the face of so many confusing signals. I do feel a tinge of sadness that your heroism hasn’t been better appreciated by those around you. Is there anything you can do to compensate? Like maybe intensify the appreciation you give yourself?

LEO

IN PRO PER RACHEL G. BOYLE RESPONDENT

(July 23-Aug. 22): I hope you’re reaching the final stages of your year-long project to make yourself as solid and steady as possible. I trust you have been building a stable foundation that will serve you well for at least the next five years. I pray you have been creating a rich sense of community and establishing vital new traditions and surrounding yourself with environments that bring out the best in you. If there’s any more work to be done in these sacred tasks, intensify your efforts in the coming weeks. If you’re behind schedule, please make up for lost time.

VIRGO

DATED: May 16, 2018 DEPUTY CLERK /S/ S.KRUSE

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Necessity is the mother of invention,” says an old proverb. In other words, when your need for some correction or improvement becomes overwhelming, you may be driven to get creative. Engineer Allen Dale put a different spin on the issue. He said that “if necessity is the mother of invention, then laziness is the father.” Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein agreed, asserting that “progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.” I’m not sure if necessity or laziness will be your motivation, Virgo, but I suspect that the coming weeks could be a golden age of invention for you. What practical innovations might you launch? What useful improvements can you finagle?

(P.S. Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead attributed the primary drive for innovative ideas and gizmos to “pleasurable intellectual curiosity.”)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Would you have turned out wiser and wealthier if you had dropped out of school in third grade? Would it have been better to apprentice yourself to a family of wolves or coyotes rather than trusting your educational fate to institutions whose job it was to acclimate you to society’s madness? I’m happy to let you know that you’re entering a phase when you’ll find it easier than usual to unlearn any old conditioning that might be suppressing your ability to fulfill your rich potentials. I urge you to seek out opportunities to unleash your skills and enhance your intelligence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The temptation to overdramatize is strong. Going through with a splashy but messy conclusion may have a perverse appeal. But why not wrap things up with an elegant whisper instead of a garish bang? Rather than impressing everyone with how amazingly complicated your crazy life is, why not quietly lay the foundations for a low-key resolution that will set the stage for a productive sequel? Taking the latter route will be much easier on your karma, and in my opinion will make for just as interesting a story.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Each of us harbors rough, vulnerable, controversial, or unhoned facets of our identity. And every one of us periodically reaches turning points when it becomes problematic to keep those qualities buried or immature. We need to make them more visible and develop their potential. I suspect you have arrived at such a turning point. So on behalf of the cosmos, I hereby invite you to enjoy a period of ripening and self-revelation. And I do mean “enjoy.” Find a way to have fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): For the next two-plus weeks, an unusual rule will be in effect: The more you lose, the more you gain. That means you will have an aptitude for eliminating hassles, banishing stress, and shedding defense mechanisms. You’ll be able to purge emotional congestion that has been preventing clarity. You’ll have good intuitions about how to separate yourself from influences that have made you weak or angry. I’m excited for you, Capricorn! A load of old, moldy karma could dissolve and disperse in what seems like a twinkling. If all goes well, you’ll be traveling much lighter by July 1.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I suggest you avoid starting a flirtatious correspondence with a convict who’ll be in jail for another 28 years. OK? And don’t snack on fugu, the Japanese delicacy that can poison you if the cook isn’t careful about preparing it. Please? And don’t participate in a séance where the medium summons the spirits of psychotic ancestors or diabolical celebrities with whom you imagine it might be interesting to converse. Got that? I understand you might be in the mood for high adventure and out-of-the-ordinary escapades. And that will be fine and healthy as long as you also exert a modicum of caution and discernment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I suggest that you pat yourself on the back with both hands as you sing your own praises and admire your own willful beauty in three mirrors simultaneously. You have won stirring victories over not just your own personal version of the devil, but also over your own inertia and sadness. From what I can determine, you have corralled what remains of the forces of darkness into a comfy holding cell, sealing off those forces from your future. They won’t bother you for a very long time, maybe never again. Right now you would benefit from a sabbatical—a vacation from all this high-powered character-building. May I suggest you pay a restorative visit to the Land of Sweet Nonsense? ∆

55 words or less

Here are some key rules to remember: 1. No more than 55 words. It’s in the title of the contest. Don’t forget it.

5. Initials are one word, and acronyms are one word.

2. Hyphenated words count as individual words, except for words like “re-open” where both parts are not words on their own.

6. Numerals count as a single word, but if written out, they fall under rule No. 2 (e.g. 67 funky monkeys counts as three words; sixtyseven funky monkeys counts as four).

3. The title does not count toward the 55 total, but it should not exceed seven words. 4. Contractions are single words (i.e. “should’ve, could’ve, would’ve”).

7. Punctuation doesn’t count, so feel free to use all the semicolons you want, but only if they’re correctly used!
