County keeping independent jail assessment under wraps

A

n independent assessment of medical and mental care at the SLO County Jail remains unavailable to the public and county supervisors despite being a factor in the county’s possible decision to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to outsource such services in the near future. The assessment, conducted by San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Chief Medical Officer Dr. Alfred Joshua, has already been used to implement some reforms at the jail and is, in part, the basis for the county’s move to consider outsourcing medical and mental health services at the jail. But none of the county supervisors have been provided with the full assessment, and the county’s legal counsel has declined to release it to the public, stating that it is also connected to pending legal claims against the county. According to a February report from county staff, Joshua was hired as a consultant as part of a wide-ranging review of the mental and medical health services at the jail that included internal investigations by SLO County Sheriff’s Office, the county Health Agency, as well as an investigation by the FBI. According to the report, Joshua brought in a team of experts in nursing, administration, medical, mental health, and sworn leadership to conduct the independent review. According to the staff’s report, Joshua’s evaluation, as well as a report by the SLO County grand jury, identified an absence of oversight for inmate health care by the Sheriff’s Office. Based on those findings, the Sheriff’s Office recommended that the county explore contracting medical and mental health services to an outside vendor and hire a chief medical officer for the jail. The county approved the creation and hiring of a chief medical officer for the jail and directed staff to develop a request for proposals (RFP) for outsourcing jail health care services. The county began accepting bids on that RFP in March. At a May 15 meeting, County Chief Administrative

Officer Wade Horton said he expected to bring back a recommendation to the board for possible adoption in late August. In a draft of the fiscal year 2018-19 budget, the county stated that it included an additional $2.3 million for the possible outsourcing of medical and mental health services at the jail. “Before we talk about outsourcing, we need to understand exactly what system we need to have in place,” 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson said at the May 15 meeting. Gibson told New Times that he hasn’t seen or read the assessment First District Supervisor John Peschong told New Times that he hadn’t received Joshua’s report, but had read a summary. Fifth District Supervisor Debbie Arnold said she’d been briefed on a summary of the report. Third District Supervisor Adam Hill said he had not seen or read the report. At the May 15 meeting, both Hill and Gibson asked for the assessment to be made public and for the board to review the full report before voting on whether to allocate money to outsource those jail services. “We need to be able to explain, and have the public understand as well, the decision that we are going to make on how we spend funds to address this issue,” Hill said. County Counsel Rita Neal said that she did not have the authority to make Joshua’s report public, stating that it was and continues to be part of pending legal claims against the county. “I think the difficulty that I find myself in, in this office and perhaps the board, is there’s that balance between transparency and improving our system … and the best way to go about looking out for the county’s best interests when it comes to litigation,” Neal said. According to a recent report by New Times, 25 percent of the medical malpractice claims filed against SLO County in the last 20 years were related to the jail. Those include a wrongful death claim filed by the family of Andrew Holland, which the county settled for $5 million last year, and a claim made by the family of Kevin Lee McLaughlin, an inmate who died of a

PETA asks Morro Bay Aquarium to release octopus

The Morro Bay Aquarium is set to close its doors in the fall but not before receiving a letter from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) demanding the release of an octopus the aquarium recently acquired. Kearney Whelan Robinson, a campaign strategist for PETA, said the organization learned in early May that an octopus was caught by a Morro Bay fisherman who gave it to the Morro Bay Aquarium. Whelan Robinson said a letter was sent to aquarium manager John Alcorn on May 10. “Octopuses are highly intellectual individuals who belong in the sea, not in tanks of chemically treated water,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman wrote in the letter. “PETA is calling on the Morro Bay Aquarium to go out on a high note by releasing this octopus back to her ocean home, where she can return to the freedom she once knew.” Whelan Robinson said that PETA hasn’t heard

heart attack in the jail in April 2017. The county rejected McLaughlin’s claim, and the family filed a civil lawsuit against the county in May. The family of Russell Alan Hammer, another inmate who died in custody in November 2017, filed a claim with the county in April, alleging that his death was the result of “horrible and inhumane” treatment. In February, the county denied a public records request from New Times for Joshua’s report on the jail, stating that it was protected from public disclosure because it was prepared at the direction of county counsel as “a critical tool to assist county counsel, the sheriff, and the director of the Health Agency to formulate policy and assist in the departments’ decisionmaking process” and thus, confidential. Gibson said he hoped that Joshua’s report would eventually become public in the not-toodistant future, stating at the meeting that there needed to be a “very honest, open-eyed look at what we need to be doing in our jail.” “I do believe it will become public,” Gibson later told New Times. “But we do have to have a conversation within the board about how it relates to litigation.” Δ —Chris McGuinness and Peter Johnson back from the aquarium. New Times reached out to the Morro Bay Aquarium for comment, but there wasn’t a manager present or on duty. In 1995, the aquarium’s right to rehabilitate animals was revoked by the National Marine Fisheries Service. The facility was also cited for alleged Animal Welfare Act violations in 2009 and 2010, and residents have repeatedly criticized the aquarium for its outdated facilities. The nearly 50-year-old Morro Bay Aquarium’s lease with the city expires this year, as Morro Bay declined to renew it. In 2016, the Morro Bay City Council signed an agreement to partner with the Central Coast Aquarium, an Avila Beach-based nonprofit, to turn the aquarium into an educational marine facility. The nonprofit plans to build a new and expanded aquarium after the Morro Bay Aquarium closes in September. In April, two California sea lions and a Pacific harbor seal were relocated from the aquarium to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo. NEWS continued page 6

Gurnee to challenge Harmon for SLO mayor

A former SLO City Council member and critic of current city politics will challenge incumbent Heidi Harmon in the SLO mayor’s race this fall. T. Keith Gurnee, a retired planner and urban designer, announced his candidacy on May 14—four days after Harmon launched her own re-election bid. In her campaign announcement, Harmon highlighted her first-term accomplishments since defeating Jan Marx in a tight 2016 race. “One of the things I’m most proud of in general is the high level of civility and civic engagement we have at council,” Harmon said to a group of supporters at City Hall on May 10. “That’s a tone we’ve really changed at the city.” Harmon celebrated SLO’s commitment to tackling environmental issues— naming “climate action” as major goal, pursuing net-zero carbon emissions status, and passing a straws-upon-request policy and single-use plastic container ban at city events. She also named repealing the Rental Housing Inspection Program; overhauling developer fees to encourage smaller, more affordable homes; and addressing city pension debt as accomplishments. “We’ve done so much in just that 18 months,” Harmon said. Gurnee, who served on the council between 1971 and 1977 and spent most of his career at RRM Design Group, told New Times he decided to run for mayor at the encouragement of community members. “The reason I think people were asking was because we need a council that does things for neighborhoods instead of doing things to them,” Gurnee said. Over the past year, Gurnee joined other members of SLO’s Anholm neighborhood to oppose a bikeway project proposed on Chorro and Broad streets. The plan received significant backlash

VIEWER DISCRETION from residents for eliminating on-street parking. “They’ve awakened the bear of this neighborhood and awakened the bear in me,” Gurnee said. “But that’s hardly the only issue.” Gurnee highlighted fiscal responsibility, the “wise” management of city infrastructure and water resources to “control city expansion,” protecting neighborhood character, addressing Cal Poly’s impact on the city, and open space as other key issues. —Peter Johnson

‘Wanted’ poster for DA and other public officials appears on cars at debate

It’s not often that San Luis Obispo County’s top prosecutor finds his own name on a “wanted” poster, but that’s exactly what happened to District Attorney Dan Dow during a May 9 debate in Atascadero. Individuals who went to the debate between Dow and his opponent in the June primary, Judge Mike Cummins, came out to find flyers on their cars offering a $250,000 reward for “evidence leading to the arrest and conviction” of Dow as well as 11 current or former Atascadero city employees and elected officials. The poster was created and distributed by Rick Holliday, a man who’s been engaged in a legal feud with the city and has also been charged with five felonies and three misdemeanors by the SLO County District Attorney’s Office, according to court records. Emails obtained by New Times showed that Atascadero deputy city manager said she reported the flyer to attorneys handling both civil and criminal cases involving Holliday. According to SLO County court documents, the DA’s office filed multiple felony charges, including grand theft, against Holliday in April. Another complaint also charged him with several misdemeanors, including contracting without a license. SLO County Assistant District Attorney Eric Dobroth said the charges were unrelated to the flyers and added that both Holliday’s cases were scheduled to go to trial June 4. “As for the poster[s], we are aware of them and although they do not appear to be a criminally actionable threat at this time, we are taking cautions to assure the safety

of our staff and the public,” Dobroth wrote in an email response to questions from New Times. Speaking with New Times, Holliday confirmed that he created the flyers, and said he fully intends to pay the reward money. Holliday said he was currently engaged in a lawsuit against the city of Atascadero, and that he had a temporary restraining order filed against him regarding contact with the city and its employees. He also said that he was wrongfully arrested for crimes he did not commit, which resulted in the criminal charges against him. Holliday said the flyers were an attempt to “rein in” corrupt government officials but stressed that they did not represent any malice or threat. “In no way is this a threat to any individual,” he said. “This is meant to bring transparency to the civil process.” Holliday said he was not employed or paid by the Cummins campaign. —Chris McGuinness

SLO County is short election workers

The June 5 primary elections are less than a month away. And while many voters have already mailed their finished ballots, others are waiting to vote the oldfashioned way: at the polls. But those polls need to be manned, and San Luis Obispo County is currently short on workers. County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong told New Times he needs the community’s help filling vacant poll positions, especially in North County. “I can’t say why exactly,” Gong said. Primary elections are typically more challenging than general elections to recruit poll workers, Gong said, due to summer vacations and end of school year activities. But he added that this year’s shortage is more glaring in light of a statewide voter trend toward mail-in voting. In the 2016 general election, 70 percent of SLO County voters mailed in their ballots.

by Jayson Mellom

“There used to be such a focus on Election Day, but now with the conveniences we provide, [voters] don’t have to be in the county on Election Day,” Gong said. “People are just not cognizant as much of the date of the election. They’re just receiving their ballot in the mail and planning their vacation schedule. That’s what I think is happening.” Gong noted it may be the last primary election with this issue. In 2020, California will start holding primaries in March instead of June. The state is also shifting to a new election model that emphasizes early voting and reduces the number of precincts. Interested poll workers can go online for an application or email county staff at elections@co.slo.ca.us. Workers need to complete a training prior to the June 5 election. The job pays a $100 stipend. Community organizations and nonprofits can also participate in “Adopt a Poll,” where their members work together at one or more precincts, donating their collective stipends to a charitable cause. —Peter Johnson

MOD SHOP 805 Beach Breaks Manager Daniel Fried demos the RFID screens that will tell customers about the product they are scanning. The high tech cannabis retailer will be the first dispensary to open its doors in Grover Beach on May 19.

805 Beach Breaks prepares to open to the public

A

s construction equipment rumbles loudly outside, the ambiance inside the lobby of 805 Beach Breaks in Grover Beach is serene. Manager Daniel Fried points out the beachy accoutrements hanging on walls: weathered pieces of wood from the old Pismo Beach pier sit artfully on one wall, a surfboard hangs on another. This is the first thing that customers will see when they walk into Beach Breaks, which, after it officially opens it doors on May 19, will be the first brick-and-mortar medical cannabis dispensary in Grover Beach, and the first dispensary to operate in SLO County in more than a decade. “We wanted to go with a high-end boutique storefront where people are going to be able to come in and have a great experience,” Fried said. Once customers present their identification and medical marijuana card in the lobby, they can enter the retail space, which, like the lobby, is bright and clean. It has has come a long way from where it started. Fried said the building, which used to house a company that made horseshoes, was gutted and nearly entirely renovated inside and out. “We replaced the roof, the floors, added walls, everything,” he said. When it comes to products, Beach Breaks offers customers a little bit of everything, from flowers and

concentrates, to edibles and topicals. Products on display are equipped with RFID readers that shoppers can set on large screens beneath the displays and get information about the products, including ingredients, dosage, and other details to help them decide what to purchase. Fried said he hates making making customers wait in lines and has used his previous experience at the Harborside Health Center in San Jose to create a relaxing, efficient, and seamless shopping experience. That includes setting up a website where members can order ahead and simply walk into the store and pick up their medicine. “It’s really user interactive and free flowing,” Fried said. “Like an Apple Store, but with cannabis.” Beach Breaks was one of four commercial cannabis dispensaries to receive a permit from Grover Beach. The city began moving to embrace the commercial cannabis industry in May 2017, when it passed regulatory ordinances to permit a variety of cannabis businesses in the the city, including cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, and retail stores. In order to get its operating permit, Beach Breaks went through a lengthy approval process, submitting detailed applications, background checks, and other documentation before landing on

a pre-application list. The City Council narrowed that list down to four businesses in October 2017, granting the companies a chance to apply for permits. Beach Breaks’ permits were approved in March 2018, according to documents from the city. “It was a very stringent process,” Fried said. Beach Breaks plans to celebrate with a grand opening party on May 19, featuring food, music, and an official ribbon cutting. But being the only dispensary in the city and the county, at least for the time being, means that all eyes will be on Beach Breaks, with both ardent supporters and strident critics of commercial cannabis watching to see how it fares. Fried said he believes the business will exceed expectations. “I think people will not only be impressed but really happy that we are here in their city,” Fried said.

While the company will only just be opening its doors, Fried said there are already plans to grow. In addition to its retail space, Fried said Beach Breaks is also building an on-site facility to manufacture its own line of products using cannabis grown from one of their farms. The business will also expand beyond medicinal sales in the very near future. The Grover Beach City Council is already moving forward with amending the cannabis regulations to allow for adult recreational use. Fried confirmed that Beach Breaks will seek to amend its permit to do just that as soon as the city formally adopts the ordinance. “We are definitely going to go through that process,” he said. ∆

But the study results didn’t deter SLO—a city striving for net-zero carbon emissions status. The SLO City Council decided to push forward on exploring its own CCE agency around the same time the county dropped the effort. SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon wrote to local cities in January in pursuit of partners. Only Morro Bay responded with immediate interest to commit, according to Read. But part of the cities’ plan is to structure a joint powers agreement that makes it easy for other municipalities to join the CCE down the road. “There’s a lot going on in our county right now with cannabis, [pensions], and all these things,” Read said. “This is a complicated topic that requires a lot of attention to do well.” SLO and Morro Bay will have to move quickly to get a CCE agency up and running by 2020. A recent California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) decision requires new CCE programs to wait at least one calendar year after gaining state approval to serve their customers. That means a fully baked proposal must be submitted and approved by the CPUC before Jan. 1, 2019 to launch a year later. The cities are currently looking for a consultant to work on it, and the finished technical studies are expected in September. At that point, either city can decide to submit a proposal to the CPUC or drop the effort. Read said the mandated one-year delay is, in part, a result of CCE’s growing share of the electricity market. Eight new CCE programs are expected to launch this year, while only nine had formed

between 2002 and 2017. The wait allows more prep time for budding CCE agencies and the state to ensure the health of the overall grid, he said. The rapid growth of CCE is also putting economic pressure on PG&E, SoCal Edison, and San Diego Gas & Electric— the state’s investor-owned utilities. The trio recently filed a petition with the CPUC that asks for permission to talk to local government officials and the media about CCE. Communicating with CCE agencies (or hopeful agencies) on the subject is considered lobbying under the state’s code of conduct and is prohibited. Opponents of CCE argue against increasing government’s presence in the energy economy, and some critique CCEs’ investment choices. Mike Brown, spokesman for the SLO County Coalition of Labor, Agricultural, and Business (COLAB), who lobbied against CCE to the SLO County supervisors, called it “sort of an energy Ponzi scheme.” Brown noted that Monterey Bay Community Power, a new CCE serving Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties, buys a majority of its power from out-of-state hydroelectric power plants—when hydro isn’t classified as a “renewable” source in California. Speaking generally, Read said energy investment choices are all within a CCE agency’s authority and discretion. “If you don’t do it mindfully, I think the criticism is right,” Read said. “Our board can make a policy decision about what kind of energy it’s comfortable with.” ∆

Utility pursuit SLO and Morro Bay push forward on Community Choice Energy, despite others’ reluctance

W

ind turbines spin off Morro Bay’s coast, creating energy that’s sold to local residents by a local agency and distributed via the grid infrastructure that once serviced the shuttered Morro Bay and Diablo Canyon power plants. It’s an exciting snapshot of the future to San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay city leaders, who are interested in seizing an opportunity to localize future power decisions by launching a municipal utility—called a Community Choice Energy (CCE) agency—to sell cleaner electricity directly to their residents. At an April 24 meeting, the Morro Bay City Council voted unanimously to join SLO in studying the prospect of a new CCE agency that would serve the communities’ combined 32,000 customers. “[There’s] a compelling point about controlling your destiny and being in a position to forge forward with new opportunities for economic development,” said Morro Bay City Councilmember John Headding. “Six, seven years out when we have a viable wind farm miles off our shore, and we have a switch yard here and the potential for great clean energy sources, I want the city to be in command of making a choice of obtaining [that power].”

Enabled by state law, CCE allows local cities and counties to coalesce into utilities and compete with private utilities like PG&E. A CCE agency, governed by a board of local elected officials, can decide where to buy power, what percentage of that power should be renewably sourced, what rates to charge, and how to reinvest profits. Power is still distributed through the existing grid infrastructure—owned by PG&E in SLO County. Customers get the choice to enroll in CCE or stay with PG&E, although the default choice is the CCE provider. “CCE is a mission-driven local government organization,” said Chris Read, SLO’s sustainability manager and a coordinator of the effort. “We need to be fiscally healthy and we need to be rate competitive, but we don’t have the profit requirements that a private company might have.” What began as a regional tri-county effort to establish a CCE on the Central Coast has narrowed to a much more local proposal. A 2017 study analyzing a CCE agency covering SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties (and the cities within) concluded that it likely wouldn’t pencil out, due to overlap between PG&E and Southern California Edison territories. The SLO County Board of Supervisors, in response, voted in January to abandon further exploration of a CCE program.

There’s a place for everyone at the Live Oak Music Festival BY GLEN STARKEY

G

ood morning and welcome to Sociology 101, an introduction to the study of society and social behavior among homo sapiens. Humans are social animals. We naturally create and maintain social networks. Some of us have very tight and often exclusive social circles while others have large overlapping networks, moving between and belonging to a number of clans. Leading scholars postulate that our brains are hardwired for tribalism, and that human evolution has developed among small groups rather than mass societies. This phenomenon is easily observed at the Live Oak Music Festival, a gathering of various tribes that occurs annually at Camp Live Oak, located north of Santa Barbara, off Highway 154, about 40 minutes south of the Santa Maria Valley. Every Father’s Day weekend for the last 29 years, these tribes have convened. On Friday, June 15, through Sunday, June 17, we can observe the 30th time these social groups have gathered to engage in communal meals, tribal dancing, music making, exchanging of goods and services, conversation, shenanigans, childrearing, beer drinking (often in that order), bicycle riding, feats of strength, and lukewarmwater showering. There are lots of big tribes, like Camp Crud, a jam camp with upwards of 20 players hosted by artist and longtime figure model Doña Deack, which started in 1995. Musicians frequently come by to jam. Her main lament is a recent Live Oak rule of quiet time after midnight. She used to love jamming through the twilight hours. Others prefer the new sleep time. There’s also Camp Happy, or what some people call Camp Smiley Face, a bicycle lovers’ camp run by Dan Kallal, who’s part of SLO’s Tall Bike Posse. His camp has about 60 to 70 adults and kids. A lot of his tribe met at The Establishment, the communal living house kitty-corner to Gus’s Grocery in SLO. “We often have

happy face street signs with eyes pointing the direction to Happy Camp,” Kallal said. “Live Oak is like a family reunion. I also like how safe it feels to let our kids roam free and just be kids.” Camp Good Medicine, run by Good Medicine Presents’ owners Todd and Korie Newman—who for the last couple of years have helped book Live Oak’s performers—hosts a musicians camp. “The impetus was to encourage performers to fully experience all Live Oak has to offer and connect with each other,” Todd said. “The vibe is community. That’s what I love—the community it inspires.” Let’s take a closer look at a trio of Live Oak’s biggest tribes.

Camp Ba’ar Nekkid

One long-running group camp began in 1994 and acquired the name Camp Ba’ar Nekkid in 1996. Original group member Kelly McCleary explained, “Way back in 1996, Naked to the World played at Live Oak, and the band members were friends of ours and camped with us. My boyfriend at the time had a nickname for me, ‘bear,’ but he’d pronounce it ‘ba’ar’—and that’s how we became Camp Ba’ar Nekkid!” The camp is a mix of Live Oak volunteers and their friends, and it’s had a “no kids” rule from the beginning. It’s not that children aren’t allowed to wander through camp, but those who camp at Ba’ar Nekkid are not allowed to bring their underage children. “With a camp name of ‘Nekkid,’ we didn’t think it would be appropriate to expose kids to our escapades,” McCleary said. “We were a lot younger back then.” Last year, several of the female Ba’ar Nekkid tribe members were photographed with a piñata-like effigy of Donald Trump, who had his tiny papier-mâché hands touching their private areas. Ba’ar Nekkid is also known

for its collection of nude Barbie and Ken dolls arranged in compromising positions. The camp is clearly not known for its maturity, despite its “no kids” rule. George Griffin has been a member of Camp Ba’ar Nekkid for “20 years, maybe a little longer,” he said, noting that when he first attended Live Oak, he camped with another tribe, but “mutual friends” invited him over to Ba’ar Nekkid. The camp’s ongoing joke is that to be invited to become a tribe member, you have to sleep your way in with another member, which might also be why it’s a kid-free camp. “Visiting the camp was really fun, and I met Liz there,” Griffin recalled, referencing his now-wife, the artist and clothing designer Liz Rhodes Cordoba. Hmm, maybe that “sleeping your way in” isn’t an ongoing “joke” after all. In any case, while Griffin believes Live Oak is “all about the music,” he also finds that “there’s a whole bunch of community that happens as well.” Over the years, the camp has hosted a communal wine tasting—often on Saturday afternoon—where camp members share their best bottles of wine with one another, as well as various snacks. On Sunday, they engage in a beer tasting. Every year before the gathering, tribe members communicate and discuss possible camp decors. Wacky costumes are encouraged. “We’ve had many themes over the years, often riffing off the backstage theme,” McCleary said, making reference to the festival’s creative green room accommodations for the performers. “It’s a group effort to decorate camp, bring the couch, carpets, tables, chairs, kitchen, and chandelier. Oh, and costumes! If there’s a zydeco band on the main stage, we’ve been known to second line through the audience area. One year we even had stilt walkers go through the audience area, myself included.” Yes, many of these camps have elaborate themes, group activities, and outdoor living rooms. Ba’ar Nekkid also has a chuck wagon that one of the members made, complete with water cistern and a sink for dishwashing. The 25 to 35 campers share the communal area. “With our living room in camp, people often wander through and end up staying awhile,” McCleary said. “We’ve also had some great musician jams in camp over the years. A couple of years ago, [Live Oak emcee] Joe Craven came by with these amazing crazy cat glasses. We had a fantastic jam!” McCleary finds Live Oak’s most impressive characteristic the “community we create each year from a patch of dirt! The creativity, the music, and all the smiles.” For Griffin, “I think Live Oak hits that really wonderful sweet spot in festivals where it’s not too big you get lost in it and not too small. The audience area is never overcrowded, the music is fabulous—it’s that Goldilocks fit, just right, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to have fun and support KCBX.”

‘Our tribe’

Another long-running camp with a mix of volunteers and their friends is a camp with no name. “We’ve never really come up with a name for our camp,” Marianne Orme said. “Perhaps it’s too many chiefs and not enough cooks! When referring to this particular group, we say ‘our tribe.’ It’s a pretty closeknit group. We have the Backstage Ambiance crew and

that’s a group of, let’s say, very strong women, and then we have many musicians from various local bands. So a name? Nah … too busy playing music and having fun!” Orme is part of the volunteer group that designs and executes the elaborate green rooms for the main stage performers, and she loves that “music is happening all day, and close to all night. The best lullabies are your friends right outside your tent singing the songs they wrote. “We always have a costume happy hour party on Saturday with the same theme as backstage. This year— 2018—the tame version of our theme is ‘the shagadelic ’60s, baby,’ so expect a lot of pop colors and era costumes.” Orme noted that a few years ago, some referred to her camp as “Sully’s camp” because a tribe member set up a bar. There was a Sully’s cocktail lounge in San Luis Obispo that burned down in 1975 in the Obispo Theater fire. The bar became very popular—“too popular and those headstrong women put a stop to it when lap dancing and vomit on tents became just a little too frequent,” Orme recalled. “So, we are a bit more tame these years. Perhaps getting older has something to do with it, who knows. But our tribe is incredibly supportive of each other, and we still gather every year in approximately the same spot at Live Oak camp as well as at other times of the year to celebrate birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and the inevitable funeral. You can count on the tribe to have your back whenever needed. Each and every one of them will go above and beyond to support each other. There’s a lot of love there.”

ZanzaBahr Before you come away with the misconception that Live Oak Music Festival is a debauched, adults-only affair, take heed: This is first and foremost a family festival, and the bulk of the camps and campers are kid friendly. In fact, pretty much any Live Oakie with kids will tell you how safe the festival is for the young ones. It takes a village, as they say. There’s even a whole

Moving to end domestic violence

A

ccording to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, about 228 domestic violence fatalities involved a gun this year, 10 million people a year are physically abused by an intimate partner, and 20,000 calls are placed a day to domestic violence hotlines. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence is an organization that works to be the voice of victims and survivors of domestic violence. It does that by affecting public policy, increasing understanding of domestic violence’s impacts, and providing programs and education to drive change. President and CEO of the organization Ruth Glenn said those three key areas are an effective approach to catalyze change. “Our main focus is truly on policy, whether it’s housing or funding, we’re ensuring that we’re at the table making sure whatever it is does no further harm to domestic violence victims or enhances their safety,” Glenn said. Although the coalition is working on change and support for victims at a national level, Glenn said that the organization often doesn’t get to hear or engage with organizations that provide services locally. “It’s these folks that quite frankly do the tough work of direct services, so we want them to know that we’re here to support them, and we also want them to know we want to carry their message for them,” she said. That’s where Aaron Steed, a coalition board member and co-founder of San Luis Obispo-based Meathead Movers, comes in. On May 9, Steed organized a meet-and-greet between Glenn and local organizations that work against domestic violence. About nine domestic violence shelters from the Fresno and Los Angeles areas had representatives in attendance as well. “My goal in putting this together was to try to help bridge the gap between our local shelter needs and national advocacy,” Steed said. Steed’s moving business, which he started with his brother in 1997, has grown from its San Luis Obispo office to locations in Santa Barbara and Southern California. What came with its growth were many inquiries from victims looking to flee dangerous domestic violence situations. Steed said the issue was one that came up early in the business’s life. “We’d get calls, and I’d be the guy picking up the phone. It was women looking to flee their abusive relationship, so we went there, helped them out, and did it for free,” he said. In 2001 Meathead Movers began its first official affiliation with a shelter, and since then it has partnered with an additional seven shelters across California to move victims of domestic violence for free. “I think there is no more powerful way that a moving company can donate their products or services to help victims of domestic violence and move them out for free,” he said. “I think other businesses need to rethink how they can give back

and help victims of domestic violence.” The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence has a public policy office that collaborates with other organizations across the country to promote legislation and policies that serve victims. Glenn said that the organization also has a program that provides services to victims at low or no cost. The Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery Program is the only direct service the coalition offers to survivors. In partnership with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, it helps survivors of domestic violence who cannot afford the reconstructive surgery needed to repair injuries caused by an abusive partner. “It’s a program which offers cosmetic and reconstructive surgery via a network of doctors that provide their services pro bono to survivors. It can help with broken noses, broken eye sockets, and we even have a couple of dentists on board for broken teeth,” she said. Meathead Movers created the #MoveToEndDV movement that encourages businesses to help organizations in their communities to support victims of domestic violence. To learn more, visit movetoenddv.org.

Opinion Vote for the climate

Kudos to California, once again showing national leadership in addressing climate change. The recent decision by the California Energy Commission to require solar panels on all new residential construction beginning in 2020 is a huge step forward in moving to green energy sources throughout our state. I was pleased to learn that Sebastopol and Santa Monica already require rooftop solar installations on newly constructed residential and commercial buildings, while Lancaster requires it on all new single family residences. Solar has proven to be a cost-effective choice over time. Cities in San Luis Obispo County could become leaders in transitioning to a clean energy economy by moving to low carbon choices, retrofitting existing government buildings, and purchasing all-electric transportation vehicles as buses and for city fleets. Citizens in SLO County can also become part of the effort to lower CO2 emissions (currently at a dangerously high 410 ppm) by getting involved in the growing movement to pass national carbon fee and dividend legislation. Besides casting a vote for the climate in upcoming elections, we can do our part by joining a local chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby and lobbying Congress in June (citizensclimatelobby.org).

San Luis Obispo. Some students live in garages, attics, carports, or anterooms. Many are paying in excess of $800 of rent—to share a bedroom. When one brings up the question of diversity in the local university, one can only look to the economics of the living situation in the city. Who can afford to live in SLO? Because of the hyperinflation of rents, real estate has been gobbled up with the sole intent to profit. A mortgage investment of $3,000 can be doubled by charging six people $1,000 a month to live in the residence. The negative externality of that free market soaks these students and their families. Every available inch of our “happiest place” is being gobbled up by avarice from near and far. One only needs to look at the behemoth at Foothill and Chorro streets to see the monster of greed in action, wringing out the last drops of happiness. Families are being squeezed out. You can see the harried moms and dads each day, crawling along a crowded Highway 101, driving to and from communities that for the time being are more affordable. Paul Cappellano San Luis Obispo

tag, especially if it means higher fees for small businesses. She spoke of working with the current sheriff to obtain better mental health services at the jail. I was not impressed with this as I feel this is a case of “too little, too late.” Paulding had many specific goals, such as addressing our environmental issues to deal with climate change. He does not want fracking or oil rigs on our coastline. When they were asked how the board could work together better, Compton did not feel this was possible, noting that one of the board members is “mentally ill.” (Wow!) Paulding stated that a collaborative approach is his strong point. Compton wanted your vote in order to maintain a 3-2 advantage on the board, which I suspect contributes to their current dysfunction and polarizing. At one point Compton condescendingly referred to Paulding as a “good kid” (Wow, again). On character alone, I would give Paulding an A and Compton a C-minus. Marvin Gross San Luis Obispo

history has the United States of America been under dictatorship rule? What we currently have in the White House is a president who is trying to herd us into his dictatorship, and guess what? You’re drinking the Kool-Aid. You believe the lies he spews as gospel. This man is so busy tweeting every second of the day, when does he have time to be our president? To believe that those who come across the border hate this country suggest you cannot think for yourself and believe everything he says. You really must close your eyes when there are news reports of mass shootings at schools or government buildings, because with the exception of the shootings in San Bernardino and the Pulse Nightclub, the rest have been committed by those of Caucasian ancestry, not Mexican, Central American, or South American. Oh and by the way, everybody pays taxes. These people spend money and in doing so pay taxes! Gloria A. Becerra, indigenous, not just first generation Arroyo Grande

Immigrants aren’t the problem

Oceano deserves better

Reflections on attending the Paulding/ Compton debate

I have one five-letter word for Laura Mordaunt to highlight the ignorance displayed in her April 19 letter to the editor (“Stop sanctuary status in SLO County”): mafia. Did you forget the crimes committed by your fellow countrymen? Your parents and thousands of other Americans who came through Ellis Island came through because of an open border policy. Your suggestion that those coming across the border at this time are “moving us back to living under dictatorship rule” is so ridiculous that I find it hard to believe you have these thoughts. When in

I learned incumbent San Luis Obispo County 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton is a small business owner and challenger Jimmy Paulding is an attorney with a degree in city and regional planning from Cal Poly. Compton spoke of her accomplishments on the Board of Supervisors but was very vague about current needs and goals other than avoiding things with a price

Have you ever wondered why Oceano isn’t Pismo Beach with its shops, motels, and restaurants? Two reasons: beach access and infrastructure. Access is blocked by the county-owned airport; the sewage treatment plant for Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, and Oceano; and a river of cars on Highway 1 and the beach. Where are all those cars going? Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. Those dunes tourists bring in millions of tourism and tax dollars each year. Who benefits from those dollars? LETTERS continued page 16

Opinion COMMENTARY from page 14

The State Parks system; the county; and the cities of Pismo, Grover, and Arroyo Grande. Because we are unincorporated, we rely on the county Board of Supervisors to invest in Oceano’s future by providing the kind of infrastructure that attracts hotels, shops, and eateries. During my 25 years of owning a home in Oceano, the board has turned its back on us. Not only do we not have infrastructure that attracts economic investment, we don’t even have sidewalks for our kids to safely walk to school or enough street lights for safely walking after dark. What do we get? The trash, the cars, and the dust to breathe. The hardworking residents of Oceano deserve better. They deserve Jimmy Paulding. Jennifer Stover Oceano

Protect our way of life

When South County residents go to the polls next month to elect a District 4 supervisor, they must consider which candidate will be best able to steer the county as we face the economic issues that the impending closure of Diablo Canyon Power Plant will bring. Lynn Compton is best equipped to chart this course thoughtfully and effectively encouraging business development while protecting the lifestyle

needs of the people in our community. Compton has been instrumental in building and operating a successful small business while raising twin daughters and supporting our community nonprofits. Her opponent Jimmy Paulding is a 32-year-old man who recently finished law school and has little real-world experience. He did not even bother to vote in the 2014 elections. Compton has succeeded in her nearly four years at the helm in supporting small businesses, tourism, and agriculture. I encourage District 4 voters to vote for experience, vote for Lynn Compton for supervisor. Carole Toerge Cayucos

Street talk Social media sound off

New Times readers took to our website to share their thoughts about our May 10 news story, “Compton and Paulding exchange shots in supervisor debate.”

Dear Mr. Shredder

I would like to comment on your May 3 column in New Times, “The last stand.” You refer to illegal immigration in that opinion piece. I’m in construction and I have had a governor on my salary my entire career due to illegal immigrants willing to work for less. I wonder how your attitude would change if every illegal immigrant crossing our southern border was a cheesy opinion piece writer willing to work for half your salary. I get the fact that you do not care for conservatives much, I also have come to the conclusion that you really don’t care for illegal aliens as much as you care for future voters to prop up your fading political ideology. You are a throwback, Mr. Shredder, and are out of touch with today’s America. Mike Source Morro Bay

Mudslinging and deception

Jimmy Paulding is either unaware of the issues in our county or he is purposely deceiving the public for his own political gain. Paulding claims his opponent is in the pocket of the special interest. But Supervisor Lynn Compton went against special interests that want to control North County water rights, while Paulding has promised to vote with Supervisors Adam Hill and Bruce Gibson in giving away our water rights to big land owners. Paulding claims his opponent has done nothing for parks in her district because there are no new parks in the past three years. But Supervisor Compton fought for developer impact fees raised in South County to be spent on parks in South County leading to approval of money for a skate park in Nipomo. Paulding claims that his opponent is the reason the Board of Supervisors is contentious. But Paulding’s supporter, Supervisor Hill, has admitted his issues with depression and anxiety are the reason for his boorish behavior on the board. Paulding claims that he is more qualified than anyone on the board of supervisors. But he is a 32-year-old, fresh out of law school. While Paulding is busy throwing mud, Supervisor Compton is working for our community. S.C. Tannler Morro Bay

The change we need

During the debate between challenger Jimmy Paulding and incumbent SLO County 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton, Ms. Compton said she views every vote through the prism of small business owners and the economy. While that approach has merit, it is also shortsighted and narrow. It fails to consider the long-term impacts of her votes on water supplies, air quality, infrastructure, congestion, and quality of life for all. And it lacks vision and longrange planning. Jimmy Paulding will listen to the concerns of all constituents and work to find balance between growth and the health of our environment. He has a vision for revitalizing Old Town Nipomo

and Oceano and the necessary experience in city planning and community outreach to make it happen. He will develop a concrete plan to meet future energy and water needs and work to obtain grants to improve roads. We need an inclusive, forward-looking approach to county governance. Jimmy Paulding is the change we need. Cindy Hansen Arroyo Grande

Remember when fascism was funny?

Al Fonzi laments “the coarsening of American politics … from which recovery is [unlikely]” (“Preferring mosquitoes to politics,” May 10). He is correct. Democracy is on the ropes, bleeding, and almost out. He then wonders how we got here. To trace the spring of this poison is simple: Rush Limbaugh. When Limbaugh hit the air, I was young and naive. I thought he was funny. He certainly wasn’t “politics.” People didn’t talk about each other this way. Who labels women seeking basic human rights “FemiNazis”? Who attacks the homeless for being homeless, and the mentally ill for being mentally ill? We were always taught to value and cherish our democracy. But here comes Limbaugh, and he absolutely hates it. I never dreamed in my wildest that anyone would take him seriously. And they really didn’t. But his entertainment was gold. And he spawned a thousand little Limbaughs all across the land, each preaching about how democracy sucks, and all of our fellow citizens suck, too. Soon this morphed into Fox News, and ultimately the man in the White House, who is simply another clone of Limbaugh. Does it surprise Fonzi that such an aggressive assertion of fascism would create a backlash in a liberal democracy? That Americans, seeing their country under attack, would respond with equal venom? I invite Fonzie to denounce Limbaugh, to denounce the fascist news channel, and to plead with those he influences to turn around before it is too late. He speaks often of his military service. He swore an oath to defend the liberal, egalitarian, democratic principles of this country. She could use him now. Sean R. Shealy San Luis Obispo

The gender issue

When we were born, we were assigned so many “X” chromosomes and so many “Y” chromosomes, which determine our gender, and there is no way in changing this. End of story. Ralph Bush Arroyo Grande

ore than 1.6 million comments opposing the Trump administration’s plan to open 95 percent of our coastal waters to offshore oil and gas drilling have poured into the Department of the Interior since Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced the plan. They include resolutions and letters from the governors of California, Oregon, and Washington; from California coastal cities; and from Humboldt, Mendocino, Marin, San Mateo, San Francisco, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties. Guess which Central Coast county is not among them—and, if the April 17 meeting of the SLO County Board of Supervisors is any indication, never will be? Specifically, the plan all those letters and resolutions oppose is the 2019-24 National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program, which Secretary Zinke announced on Jan. 4 of this year. If you wanted to have a say on the draft plan, you needed to send your comments to the Department of the Interior during the public comment period on the plan, a

No such language appeared in the county’s draft resolution that finally made a tardy appearance on the supervisors’ dais on April 17. Arnold tried to explain why such language wasn’t needed in the resolution that she and Compton were suddenly eager to vote for. That document, in strained, context-free bureaucratese, contented itself with gesturing toward county policies and then throwing in a kicker that was in no other resolution: “The county is available and willing to work with the Department of the Interior in the development of an offshore energy plan that provides for needed energy while ensuring protection of our important natural resources.” Testimony submitted by Eric Greening noted that, “Our county should not be volunteering to help Interior write an offshore energy plan. Our county already has an offshore energy element, which is 180 degrees at variance with what the Interior Department is seeking.” In shooting down that peculiar resolution, Supervisor Adam Hill noted that the language “should mirror what other coastal

That document, in strained, context-free bureaucratese, contented itself with gesturing toward county policies and then throwing in a kicker that was in no other resolution … . window that closed on March 9. The resolutions from the coastal counties and cities that managed to meet that deadline were based on model resolutions that circulated throughout the Pacific coastal states. At the Feb. 6 meeting of the Board of Supervisors, where the refusal by Supervisor Debbie Arnold and Supervisor Lynn Compton to second a motion by Supervisor Bruce Gibson killed any chance of getting comments from the county on the record of the draft plan, Compton said she didn’t like the wording of the suggested resolution—an explanation that made precisely no sense because the motion she allowed to die was a motion to ask staff to draft a resolution and bring it back to the board for consideration and any amendments any supervisor desired. The resolutions sent to Secretary Zinke by local governments that managed to act in a timely fashion have variously stated: • A massive oil spill in 1969 off the coast of Santa Barbara fouled coastal waters and caused catastrophic economic and environmental damage … • In 2015, a pipeline servicing offshore oil platforms burst and fouled the same coastal areas, damaging wildlife and impacting recreational and commercial activities … • The Trump administration is considering expanding offshore oil and gas leasing to new areas, which have largely been off limits to new federal leasing, including the Pacific Coast … • Expanding offshore drilling, fracking, and other well stimulation off the California coast will deepen the state’s dependence on fossil fuels and undermine its efforts to address climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and moving toward renewable energy …

communities up and down California have done.” Supervisor Gibson said the resolution’s recitals “need to be expanded to give a full picture of why it is that this county opposes offshore exploration.” Arnold retorted that the county sent a letter to Zinke in March 2017 (before the opening of public comment on the five-year draft plan and therefore, per regulations.gov, not part of that administrative record, Supervisor Arnold’s belief to the contrary notwithstanding), and that SLO County is special because “other counties don’t have Measure A,” a local ordinance passed in 1986 that requires a referendum on onshore infrastructure for new offshore rigs. But, in fact, more than 20 coastal communities have the equivalent of Measure A, including eight of the 11 coastal counties now on record opposing the Trump/Zinke offshore oil plan. As people intimately involved with the creation and passage of those ballot measures will tell you, they won’t save us if the Trump/Zinke plan comes to pass. Facts matter. If, at any point in the future, supervisors Arnold or Compton recite their generic, context-free opposition to offshore oil while omitting the above details, let the record show: Their specific accomplishment on this issue was ensuring that the SLO County Board of Supervisors made no comment on the 2019-24 National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program as drafted by the Trump administration. ∆ Andrew Christie is director of the Santa Lucia Chapter of the Sierra Club.

The Shredder

A public allegiance

I

pledge allegiance to the sheriff of San Luis Obispo County, and to the independent report on the jail, for which the county stands to block from public access, as one, in front of Ian Parkinson, indivisible, with zero transparency and justice for nobody. Is that the county’s new pledge of allegiance, or is it just me? It sure sounded like it at the May 15 SLO County Board of Supervisors meeting. The raging hot mess that is the SLO County Jail has put County Counsel Rita Neal in a tough position—according to Rita. The good news? SLO County plans to spend at least an extra $2.3 million to augment jail mental and medical health care services in the 2018-19 budget year. Woohoo! All it took were some jail inmate deaths, an FBI civil rights investigation, and massive public outcry! That’s democracy in action, baby! The bad news? I’m beginning to think that this supposed independent assessment on the jail’s mental and medical health care issues completed by San Diego County Jail Chief Medical Officer Dr. Albert Joshua—Rita’s nicknamed it “The Dr. Josh Report,” which is kinda cute—is a myth. I’ve been wondering why it hasn’t been released to the public for months now, and apparently so has 3rd District Supervisor Adam Hill. “I would like to know when the board

is going to get a copy of that,” Hill asked Rita and County Administrative Officer Wade Horton during the budget discussion as this office machine silently cheered on its favorite little minx. “I just want us to make informed budget decisions in June on that issue. It’s really important for us to have a good independent assessment on that.” Wait. I think my carriage return just exploded. The Board of Supervisors hasn’t even seen the report! Don’t worry, Wade basically told Hill, you’ll get that in August, along with staff recommendations from the team that has seen the report on just which private company to outsource health care at the jail to. Never mind that y’all are talking budgets in June and haven’t seen it yet. We gave you a summary already. Just use that. Trust us! We got you! Except, there’s also an election that will be decided in June. The questions regarding health care at the jail have sparked a flaming dumpster fire that could actually wreck Sheriff Parkinson’s political career. Why are sheriffs elected anyway? It’s so stupid! All the public knows about the Dr. Josh Report unicorn is this: you know that whole health care part of jail services? Well, it doesn’t have good oversight. Which, duh! Case-in-point: inmate Andrew Holland strapped in a chair for almost two days in January 2017 and dying from an embolism after being unstrapped.

The sheriff has repeatedly stated that he knew nothing about it until Holland was actually dying. Because that’s a totally normal situation to put an inmate in—not! At least, I hope it’s not. Oversight? There is none. The county didn’t need to pay a consultant for that. I give my two cents for free every week! How can supervisors make a decision to spend $2.3 million on augmenting jail services when they don’t know what exactly needs to change, well, other than “oversight”? It’s a management buzzword that lacks specificity. The county is projected to be $3.5 million short next year. How do we know that $2 million couldn’t be better spent elsewhere? Who has oversight over Rita, Wade, and Ian anyway? Is it the elected members of the Board of Supervisors? Doesn’t look like it to me. Sounds like it’s Rita, Wade, and Ian making decisions—such as hiring public relations firm AMF Media to advise the county through dumpster fire mode—while the board is left in the dark, expected to trust the tried-and-true trio that pledges allegiance to the county’s best interest. Things continue to trickle out that imply the exact opposite. “At this point, I don’t have the authority to make the report public,” Rita told Hill with eyes that pleaded him to shut up, shut up, shut up! “There’s that balance between transparency, and improving

our system … and then the current pending claims and lawsuits … and the best way to go about looking out for the county’s best interests when it comes to litigation.” Umm, quick question: Who’s supposed to authorize its release? Because I’d loooove to talk to them. You denied New Times’ Public Records Act request for the Dr. Josh Report, saying it essentially falls under attorney-client privilege. I call BS! Rita, you seem to be saying that—and please, excuse the generic term I’m about to use—there’s some bad stuff in that report. It’s the kind of excrement that when smeared on jail cell walls could cause the county to be liable to these inmates who have either passed away or feel that they’ve been treated in an inhumane manner. However, from where I sit, there have already been public policy decisions made because of it, public money has already been spent on changes that have supposedly already been implemented at the jail based on the report’s contents, and there will be a public discussion about whether or not to spend more money on a recommendation from the sheriff based on this extremely not public independent assessment. Sounds like this unicorn should absolutely be a very public document. ∆ The Shredder pledges allegiance to the people. Send comments to shredder@ newtimesslo.com.

PREPARE

FOR AN EMERGENCY? • Whether it is a flood, fire, earthquake, or an emergency at Diablo Canyon, disasters can and do happen. We cannot accurately predict when or where a disaster may strike, but we can prepare for them and reduce the consequences should one occur. Knowing which disasters are most likely to affect you and your family can help you prepare. • Should an emergency occur at Diablo Canyon, it’s important to know if your home, workplace, or children’s schools are within the Emergency Planning Zone as well as any actions you may be directed to take. Your plan should include assistance needed by elderly family members, those with medical needs, as well as your family pets. • In an emergency, officials will make protective action decisions on a variety of factors as the situation develops. This makes it extremely important for the public to stay tuned to local radio and TV throughout the emergency to receive current information and actions they need to take. • Getting prepared may seem like an overwhelming task, but someday it may bring a huge reward. • For more information on how to get your family prepared visit: www.slocounty.ca.gov/oes or call (805) 781-5011.

rock heroes Modest Mouse playing the Madonna Expo Center on Tuesday, May 22 (6 p.m.; all ages; $35 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $40 at the door). Formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington, the band released their first full-length album, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About, on the Up label in 1996. Their second, The Lonesome Crowded West (1997), landed the group a contract with Epic Records, which released The Moon & Antarctica (2000). In 2004, their breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, sold more than 1.5 million copies, earned the band two Grammy nominations, and cemented their rep as an important alt-rock act. That same evening over at The Siren, see Americana juke/honkytonk/vintage blues artist The Suitcase Junket and uplifting folk rocker Dan Curcio when they bring their respective one-manband styles on Tuesday, May 22 (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $13 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $15 at the door).

Experience the Power!

The Fremont Theater has a bunch of big shows this week, but perhaps the biggest is soul, funk, and R&B powerhouse Tower of Power, which formed in Oakland in 1968, and enjoyed hits such as “So Very Hard to Go,” “Don’t Change Horses (In the Middle of the Stream),” and “You’re Still a Young Man.” Known for their amazing horn section, this is a band to be reckoned with. See Tower of Power on Saturday, May 19 (7 p.m.; all ages; $59.56 to $77.16, or $209.12 for meet-and-greet, at Boo Boo’s and eventbrite.com). Also this week at the Fremont, see hip-

hop artist YBN Nahmir on Thursday, May 17 (9 p.m.; $22 at eventbrite.com or Boo Boo Records). YBN Almighty Jay and Anthony Ray open. The Desert Daze Caravan music festival will be live in the Fremont on Friday, May 18, featuring Ariel Pink (think ’70s and ’80s pop radio sounds) and Brooklyn rockers DIIV (9 p.m.; $25 presale at eventbrite.com or Boo Boo’s). Reggae and hip-hop artist J. Boog plays the Fremont on Tuesday, May 22 (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $27 to $77 at eventbrite.com) as part of his L.O.E. (Love Over Everything) Tour. Special guests I-Octane and Westafa open.

What’s old is new again

First, local surf punk pop act Hayley and the Crushers released a cassette tape, and now Soft People frontman Caleb Nichols has started a cassette label called Sandwich Kingdom. “It’s a strange little label that’s going to put out cassettes and streaming music of artists based in or with connections to San Luis Obispo,” Nichols said. “To kick things off, the label is releasing two tapes on May 19.” Sounds Of The Sandwich Kingdom: Vol. I is a mixtape featuring Arthur Watership, Other Houses, Tasia Trevino, Noah Kwid, Soft People, Depressed Specter, and more. American Men, Soft People’s debut, will also be released on cassette. Nichols describes the sound as “early Midlake having a baby with Broadcast and Clinic and Deerhoof and Boards of Canada”—or alternately—“America’s best gay socialist band.” I think it’s got a cool ’80s vibe with STARKEY continued page 33

Cal Poly PAC receives largest donation in history, renames Harman Hall

The Harold J. Miossi Charitable Trust donated $1.5 million to Cal Poly’s Foundation for the Performing Arts Center, the largest cash gift in the center’s history, foundation officials announced May 16. In honor of the donation, the foundation’s board will rename Sidney Harman Hall, the main auditorium in the PAC, as the Harold Miossi Hall. “Harold Miossi was passionate throughout his life about how important it is for all members of our community to have access to the arts, and this gift supports Mr. Miossi’s vision,” Howard Carroll, a trustee for the Miossi trust, said in a statement. “This gift is intended to support existing programs that are making the arts ever more accessible to young people.” According to a statement from Trudie Safreno, president for the foundation’s board, the donation will support efforts like the School Matinee Program, which will allow 10,000 students from all over San Luis Obispo County see professional live-arts programming at the PAC this year. Carrol said trhe trust has supported the matinee program for several years and wanted to do more. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate Harold Miossi’s legacy,” Safreno said. “We’re also grateful for Howard Carroll’s recognition of the value of our programs.” The Miossi trust is behind artistic endeavors such as the Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery at Cuesta College and the SLO Museum of Art’s proposed $15 million building, which museum officials hope to break ground on in 2019. The auditorium was originally named Sidney Harman Hall in honor of a donation of audio equipment when the PAC first opened in 1996. Representatives for the Harmans returned the naming rights to the foundation in 2014 so that other donors could be inspired to give large gifts to the PAC. In keeping with this tradition Carroll said the name Harold Miossi Hall will only remain for 15 years in order to give other donors the chance to step forward and support the arts. “We hope this gift inspires others to consider their own legacy gifts in ways that will help guarantee the future of a program that they hold dear,” Carroll said.

Community resource A local nonprofit accomplishes its goals by restoring a historic home, building a community resource

M

arina Washburn, director for the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos (DANA), lived in Nipomo until she left for college at the University of California Santa Cruz. “It was time, and I was ready to get out of this little town,” Washburn said. As DANA prepared for the grand opening of its new Cultural Center on May 20, Washburn reflected on how Nipomo was always her home. It’s where her roots are, where her family raised her. “At the same time I grew up in a time where identity was so important. And there was this search for belonging that I really struggled with as a first generation American,” she said. So her search continued as she left for college, began her career in the nonprofit sector, got married, and became pregnant. At that point, Washburn was ready to move back to her hometown to settle down and raise her own family. About 10 years ago, when she was three months pregnant, she said, she was offered the executive director position for DANA in her hometown. The public benefit nonprofit was established in 1999 with a focus to save the ruined historic Dana Adobe rancho and gain state and national recognition for the landmark. She remembers the first time she stepped foot on the Dana Adobe property. “When I came in for the second interview for the job, it was the first time I had ever been here on this property, and I just felt like I had finally

Restoring old and building new

The DANA Adobe Cultural Center’s grand opening will be held May 20 from 10 a.m. to noon and will feature an exhibit about the history of the Central Coast, a contemporary photo exhibit on how Native American cultures celebrate their heritage, and information about the animals that live in the area. A tree planting event and Nature Fest will take place from noon to 4 p.m. following the grand opening. Both events are free to the public. For more information, visit danaadobe.org.

COMMUNITY RESOURCE The Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos has been working hard for seven years to bring the community a resource center for learning and public use.

found my place of belonging,” she said as she waved her hand in the direction of the rancho. Just a month later, Washburn was made an offer and she took the position. She and the president of the organization at that time walked over to the sycamore tree that stands to the left of the rancho to talk about the organization’s vision for the historic home. “The house was in ruins; it was going through restoration, but it needed so much work,” she said. The organization was working with San Luis Obispo County at the time to purchase the land surrounding the actual home. The nonprofit only owned the house itself. “He’s telling me the vision of fully restoring the house and building a visitor’s center. I remember taking a really deep breath and thinking maybe when my baby is 10 years old this will all be done,” Washburn said. Her firstborn son will be 10 years old in June, and within those 10 years, Washburn has contributed to the completed restoration of the Dana Adobe rancho, the creation of a 1-mile interpretive trail surrounding the home, and the newly built DANA Adobe Cultural Center. The organization spent five years working on

the right documentation to get the project going and two years on construction. Washburn said that seven years felt like a long time, but completing this project makes the organization that’s been around for about 20 years feel like it’s starting a new chapter in its nonprofit life. The center lies to the right of the Dana Adobe, if you’re standing in front of the rancho, and there is a trail you can follow to its entrance. You can also drive to the parking area in front of the new facility. A vast green landscape of land and hills surrounds it. Sliding glass doors are basically the building’s walls. Standing in the building almost makes it feel like a painting, its contents framed by the nature that surrounds the center. The cultural center is about 4,500 square feet meant for the community’s use, with the capacity to be a gallery, classroom, and an event space, as the building is equipped with a commercial kitchen. “We want to focus on engaging the community with models of stewardship for natural and cultural resources,” Washburn said. DANA already has several programs and activities for children who visit the adobe with their school or during summer programming. Several stations within the property give children a sense of what life was like about 150 years ago. They have a chance to make tortillas and bricks in addition to learning about the Dana family and the nature surrounding the rancho. With the new cultural center, the organization is creating more nature programs, which will highlight native animals, ecosystems, and plants on the property. Washburn said having the center finished and the historic home restored is a huge success for the organization, although there are still more projects to be completed, like additional trails and gardens. Part of the vision was to make a trip here more than a visit to the Dana Adobe. “We knew that it needed to be more than a historic house. Just a historic house is like saying, ‘Oh yeah I went there as a kid and never came back,’” she said. Δ Karen Garcia is stopping to smell the flowers on a hike at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

Hear the bells PCPA explores the question ‘What makes a monster and what makes a man?’

when Quasimodo meets the enchanting Esmeralda (Amani Dorn), who is also having quite an impact on Phoebus (Jeff Salsbury), the new captain of the Paris Guard.

Split Screen PHOTOS COURTESY OF NEW LINE CINEMA

An OK time F rom writer/director Ben Falcone (Tammy, The Boss) and his cowriter/wife Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters, Bridesmaids) comes the summer comedy Life of the Party. When her husband, Dan (Matt Walsh, Brigsby Bear, Elf), suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turns regret into reset by going back to college ... landing in the same class and school as her daughter, Maddie (Molly Gordan, I Am Sam), who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna—now Dee Rock— embraces freedom, fun, and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

Editor’s note: Arts Editor Ryah Cooley and Staff Writer Karen Garcia took one for the team this week and wrote Split Screen. Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna, will be back next week. Ryah I’ve enjoyed Melissa McCarthy’s work ever since she was in Gilmore Girls. That said, I didn’t have super high hopes going into The Life of the Party. McCarthy’s films as of late have become a bit repetitive, not bad, but not great, and always leaning heavily on a particular brand of over-the-top, crude comedy. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it in Bridesmaids, but a handful of films later, it’s starting to get stale. The premise isn’t terribly original. After her husband leaves her for another woman, Deanna, PARTY LIKE IT’S 1985 Deanna (Melissa McCarthy, center) has the senior year she never got, complete with ragers and hookups, when she returns to college after her husband leaves her for another woman.

moments of rest and respite, but they come few and far between in this bombastic and overblown tale. It’s everything you want in a comic book movie, but turned up to 11. Some will like that, others won’t. The film opens with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) overcome by Thanos, then it hands off to Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), who enlists Tony Stark/ Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) to save the universe. Banner has to round up Steve Rogers/Capt. America (Chris Evans). When they’re attacked by Thanos’ minions, Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) has to show up and rescue them. Meanwhile the Guardians of the Galaxy (Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Pratt)

have to rescue Thor from outer space death. Various superheroes are trying to protect various “infinity stones” that Thanos is trying to acquire so he can kill off half the universe with a literal snap of his fingers. And soon James “Rhodey” Rhodes/War Machine (Don Cheadle), Vision (Paul Bettany), Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Bucky Barnes/White Wolf (Sebastian Stan) all convene at T’Challa/ Black Panther’s (Chadwick Boseman) hidden kingdom of Wakanda for a final showdown with Thanos.

I FEEL PRETTY

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Stadium 10 Co-writers-directors Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein helm this story about insecure Renee Bennett (Amy Schumer), who after suffering a fall awakes to believe she’s the world’s most beautiful and capable woman. Funny lady Schumer (Trainwreck, Snatched) is back doing what she does best—bringing laughs through selfdeprecating humor and physical comedy. While I Feel Pretty has a surprisingly dismal metascore on both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, I for one was laughing from beginning to end, and my fellow audience members seemed to feel the same. Renee (Schumer) is a sad sack of a woman whose utter lack of self confidence keeps her from going after the things she really wants … that is until a Soulcycle class gone wrong, resulting in a head injury that brings brimming self-confidence. When Renee looks in the mirror, she sees utter perfection looking back. Her new lease on life leads to a new dream job, a romantic prospect, and an “in” with her boss, a mouse voiced Avery LeClaire (Michelle Williams) who uses Renee’s “every woman” appeal to launch a line of cosmetics to run in stores like Target and Kohl’s, not their usual high-end markets. Of course not everything in Renee’s life is smooth sailing because of her new confidence. Her tried-and-true gal

pals (Aidy Bryant and Busy Phillips) soon grow sick of her strive for stature and exclusivity, and Renee soon learns that even “pretty people” have problems. While it’s a bit ridiculous to say that Schumer is anything short of pretty—she is, in fact, a working Hollywood actress— she does fall outside of the typical starlet aesthetic and is a vocal advocate for inclusion and acceptance. She also isn’t afraid to put it all out there for the sake of comedy, and she brings some seriously funny stuff to her character. Soon after meeting Ethan (Rory Scovel), they venture into a bar with a bikini contest going on, and Renee jumps right in. She ties up her shirt, rolls up her shorts, and hops onstage with the group of toned and tiny contestants. It’s hilarious, and Ethan is soon smitten with this bold and brazen chick. The message being sold is that confidence is sexy, and I agree. While she still may not be perfect, confident Renee makes things happen, takes risks, and owns herself. Once she learns to love herself, head injury side effects or not, she can spend her time living a truly fulfilling life and give up on trying to attain perfection. (110 min.) —Anna Starkey

Along the way, Atari receives help from other banished dogs, including Rex (Edward Norton), King (Bob Balaban), Duke (Jeff Goldblum), Boss (Bill Murray), and Chief (Bryan Cranston).

banisher and Mayor Kobayashi (Kunichi Nomura)—Atari’s guardian—works to thwart Professor Watanabe (Akira Ito), who’s developing a cure for the dog flu, so the Mayor can carry out his evil plan to exterminate all dogs. Talking dogs feels completely natural in Isle of Dogs, which explores the unique relationships between humans and dogs from the dogs’ perspective. Chief, for instance, is a stray, and his pack members subtly and silently judge him for it. Nutmeg is a former show dog used to regular grooming and being fawned over, but like all the other dogs banished to Trash Island, she lost her elevated position and deals with it with a level of class that’s hard not to admire. This sort of anthropomorphization is human nature—we love to imagine our pets have an inner dialogue and love us the same way we love them. Anderson has a lot of fun exploring how dogs think of humans and each other. Ultimately, this is a film about relationships, loyalty, honor, and ethics, which are pretty heavy topics, but first and foremost, this is a wonderful looking film. I absolutely loved it! It helps that there’s a great cast doing great voice work with some fun surprises. Courtney B. Vance’s smooth voice as The Narrator provides necessary context, John Lennon’s former wife Yoko Ono makes a vocal appearance as Assistant-Scientist Yoko Ono, and long-time Anderson collaborator Anjelica Huston is credited as voicing a character named Mute Poodle, meaning she has no lines. Greta Gerwig is terrific as earnest and idealistic exchange student Tracy Walker. Even though the story centers on Atari and his search for Spots, this is really Chief’s story. He’s the character with the biggest arc, the one who has to learn about the sacred relationship between man and dog, who also has to learn he’s good enough to deserve a mate like Nutmeg. The dogs are actually a lot more complex than most of the human characters, and it’s Chief we’re rooting for more than Atari. (101 min.) —Glen Starkey

BLAST FROM THE those people grappled with the reality of global conflict. Paranoia and how it affects society at all levels is a key component of 1941 and serves as a main driver for many of the film’s funniest moments. Indeed, the movie’s climax spoofs the Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942, when U.S. Forces fired off rounds of antiaircraft artillery at supposed Japanese airplanes that were later discovered to be a missing weather balloon. In 1983, the U.S. Office of Air Force History attributed the incident to “war nerves.” The film’s writers, Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Cast Away) and Bob Gale, at one point stated that 1941’s plot was loosely based on that night and the Ellwood oil refinery bombardment by a Japanese Submarine near Santa Barbara. Historians now say that both events were emblematic of the paranoia that gripped the West Coast at the time. 1941 may not be for everyone, but those with an interest in history and a need for a little classic comedy should do themselves a favor, “knock out those lights,” and give it a watch. To be honest, just seeing the film for Belushi’s Capt. Wild Bill Kelso is a worthy endeavor—a character described multiple times throughout the movie as the “craziest son of a bitch I’ve ever seen.” (126 min.) Δ —Spencer Cole

MOVIES from page 41 Luckily for Kate, the only person searching for the missing heir is his sister, Magdalena (Cecilia Suarez). But she devises a plan of her own after finding him at the hospital. “Is this your brother?” One of the doctors asks her. “No, I’ve never seen this man before in my life.” She replies and quickly leaves without Leo seeing her. With her brother out of the way, Magdalena is next in line to inherit their deathbed-ridden father’s company. With the rest of his family under the assumption he was eaten by sharks (yep), Leo is free for Kate to take. And she does. Leo knows right off the bat, as Goldie Hawn’s character did in the original, that something isn’t right. But without a single memory to turn to, Leo is stuck believing Kate’s lie, which is backed up by fake documents and her knowledge of a Speedy Gonzales tattoo on his butt. It took me a little while to get on board (get it?) with this Overboard. I know you’re supposed to hate Leo in the beginning, but I found his obnoxiousness overbearing at times (he’s a womanizing drunkard as opposed to Hawn’s snobby socialite). But once that finally settles down, and Leo becomes more “accustomed” to his new, humble surroundings, the film gets funnier. The hardest thing for Leo to believe at first, besides having to work for a living, is that he’s a father. While the predictable, budding romance between Leo and Kate is fun, the real heart of this story lies with the kids. No matter how ludicrous the circumstances are, he slowly becomes the closest thing to a father figure Kate’s three daughters have ever known. And as sappy and improbable as it is, the bond he forms with them won me over. There’s one scene near the end that involves a bicycle (that’s all I’ll say) where I was close to crying. I kid you not; this moment has just as much, if not more, weight to it than anything in Avengers: Infinity War.

The Palm Wim Wenders’ new documentary, Pope Francis: A Man of His Word, is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope’s ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today’s global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace.

A QUIET PLACE What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Stadium 10, Park Director and co-writer John Krasinski (Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, Promised Land, The Hollars) helms and stars in this horror story, co-written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, about the Abbott family— father Lee (Krasinski), pregnant mother Evelyn (Emily Blunt), and kids Beau (Cade Woodward), Marcus (Noah Jupe), and deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds)—who must live in utter silence to protect themselves from deadly creatures that hunt by sound. While the synopsis may sound like standardissue sci-fi horror, A Quiet Place is instead throat-clenchingly tense and a thoroughly thoughtful meditation on parenthood, family, and guilt. Most recent horror movies have bored me due to a lack of scares, flat characters, or hackneyed writing and direction. A Quiet Place falls prey to none of that, and it offers a badass but open ending, which I found hopeful though my wife didn’t—that’s deft filmmaking in my book. (90 min.) —Glen Starkey

But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans—until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg’s exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films. (96 min.) —Magnolia Pictures

The Godfather II this ain’t. Instead, it predictably suffers from sequel disease: more of the same turned up to 11, but devoid of the surprise of the first film. What follows is a lot of shenanigans between the troopers and their Mountie counterparts, as well as a search to discover the smugglers. Overall, it’s pretty funny, though not quite as funny as the first and certainly not as original. Stay through the credits. The best bit happens at the very end.

Reitman and Cody make good team. Juno remains one of my favorite films, and though I didn’t think Young Adult was in the same league as the pair’s first go-around, it was a remarkably frank look at stunted growth and narcissism. Tully takes a crack at motherhood, exploring the exhaustion is causes and the endless patience it requires. Marlo herself questions her choices and yearns for her carefree youth, living in Brooklyn with what may have been an early lesbian love affair. That’s the heart of this story: How does she reconcile her choices, get over her regrets, and learn to love her life? Tully is there to not only help her with her kids, but to help her with herself. It’s a remarkably warm and poignant film. (99 min.) Δ —Glen Starkey New Times movie reviews were compiled by Arts Editor Ryah Cooley and others. You can contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

Turf, surf, and a cattle brand Cowboy country meets wine country at ON Bar Paso

B

lack and white framed photos of cowboys and cattle hang above the comfy booths at ON Bar in Paso Robles. Melissa Mattson, part owner alongside founders Steve and Angela Nino— explains that this isn’t just “rustic” décor. It’s a way of life. “These are all local branding photos of our ranching community,” Mattson says, adding that Steve Nino, among other area ranchers, can be spotted throughout the photo set. “For the weekend, you might go brand someone’s cattle out in Cuyama, and everyone shows up to help, even the kids. The next weekend, they’ll brand your ranch in Paso Robles. The ranching community here is really close.” From the well-worn branding irons dangling from the walls to the Waylon Jennings song crooning over the juke to the din of clinking glassware, ON Bar has one boot firmly rooted in cabernet sauvignon and the other in cattle. In other words: It’s a little bit wine country, a little bit cowboy country. Seafood? Yes. Wine? Yes. Steaks? Oh heck yeah (Nino is picky about his meats, and so are his customers). The restaurant is an homage to Nino’s cattle ranching grandfather, Oliver Nino. A true Cattleman, Oliver would probably be proud of this place. This is no fussy white tablecloth affair, but the steaks are

Branded beef

ON Bar is located in downtown Paso Robles at 1144 Pine St. Hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, call (805) 369-2394 or go to onbarpaso.com.

treated like celebrities. “ON Bar actually stands for ‘Oliver Nino,’ and it’s been the family cattle brand for the past 95 years,” Mattson says. “That’s why it’s the first thing you see when you walk through the door.” Yes, you will spot the large “ON Bar” brand clear as day as you stroll into this long beloved Mission inspired space, the second restaurant Nino has opened in the past few years. (He also owns family friendly barbecue joint Nino’s Grill, located in his nearby stomping grounds of Templeton.) If you’re a Paso Robles local or just a fan of farm fresh early California cuisine, you’ve probably spent time here. Villa Creek opened in the location some 18 years ago, and whispers of this legacy will probably always remain. Still, Mattson says that after months closed to the public, the community was “ready” to get back into the booths and to try the new offerings. Namely: Cocktails, wine, beer, burgers, seafood, salads, pasta, and USDA prime beef steaks cooked precisely to order. Executive Chef Ryan Trimble uses only

steaks from Harris Ranch, which—fun fact—members of the Nino family still partner with to keep their own cattle ranching legacy alive. Although a quick lunch is a great option, Mattson says you must come for dinner if you want the full ON Bar experience. Lingering over a meaty mouthful with a bottle of local red—could there be anything more old-school Paso? Let the people south of the grade “go vegan” and gluten free. Here, it’s all about bloody plates and browned, beefy bits. “Our New York steak and prime rib are doing amazingly well,” Mattson says of the local response. “You don’t have to

season prime as much. All the fat does its own seasoning. You’re really getting that true steak flavor.” Farm-to-table this is not, yet you’ll still get that upscale vibe (especially while chilling on that killer patio looking out over the heart of Paso Robles—not a bad spot to dig into a small plate of spring rolls and a mint julep). I nibbled on two lunchtime appetizers that felt light and fresh on a weekday midmorning: a pretty tower stacked high with snow crab, mango, and avocado (served with house-made chips) and an order of FLAVOR continued page 46

THEY HAVE THE MEATS Steak is a big deal at ON Bar in Paso Robles. Order a filet mignon, 14-ounce rib-eye, 12-ounce New York strip, slow smoked prime rib, or 8-ounce top sirloin. Of course, you could get 14-ounce thick-cut pork chops, smoked cornish game hen, a sirloin burger, or baby back ribs, if you’re still feeling peckish. UP STREAM Simple, classic grilled salmon is served alongside a bed of greens topped with walnuts and honey mustard vinaigrette.

STEAKMASTER Executive Chef Ryan Trimble busies himself with steaks, seafood, and salads at ON Bar in Paso Robles (but, let’s be honest, it’s mostly steaks).

In pizza we trust: Since 1973, Del’s Pizzaria has been a local favorite in Shell Beach. Well, that’s all changed! Dig into this iconic pizza joint’s “carne amore ’za” topped with pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, Canadian bacon, and linguica at Del’s new digs at 1101 Price St., suite 100, in Pismo Beach. Yes, the pizza may have moved locations but the tradition (and local love) remains strong; see the full menu at delspizzeria.com … You used to be able to get hot comfort food (mac and cheese, especially) from Chef Jeffry Wiesinger at Barton’s Kitchen, just a stone’s throw form Grey Wolf Cellars and Barton Family Wines in Paso Robles. Well, Chef Jeffry is now opening his own restaurant, Jeffry’s Wine Country BBQ, located in downtown Paso Robles (look for it at 819 12th St., suite 100; go to jeffryscatering. com for more info)! That means that Barton’s Kitchen is now occupied by a new chef hoping to keep wine country satiated between tastings. Meet Jeff Thomas, who aims to bring farm-to-table flair to this popular grub spot along Highway 46 west (for more information, go to bartonfamilywines.com).

For sure! Tunes will be provided by B and the Hive. Where is all this taking place? A fancy tasting room? A swanky restaurant? Nope! I told you this is real farm-totable, and I meant it. This entire soiree is hosted at City Farm SLO, the 19-acre parcel of greenery nestled along Highway 101 between Los Osos Valley Road and Madonna Road. Relax under the pergola and see just what this volunteer-run farm has produced this spring. If you’ve yet to stop by, you might be surprised to see flourishing student gardens, an outdoor kitchen, food forest demonstrations, and more. Owned by the city and managed by Central Coast Grown, this tuckedaway farm off the beaten path stands as a testament to how we can all preserve our fertile growing grounds for future generations to come. Silent auction and ticket proceeds go toward helping support Central Coast Grown’s volunteer-run educational and agricultural programs. For tickets, go to atasteofspring.brownpapertickets.com or email info@centralcoastgrown.org. You can also call (805) 769-8344 for more information.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Do something that you will remember with pride and passion until the end of your days. Testify at freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): According to my assessment of the astrological omens, your duty right now is to be a brave observer and fair-minded intermediary and honest storyteller. Your people need you to help them do the right thing. They require your influence in order to make good decisions. So if you encounter lazy communication, dispel it with your clear and concise speech. If you find that foggy thinking has started to infect important discussions, inject your clear and concise insights.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Polish pianist Ignacy Jan Paderewski once performed for England’s Queen Victoria. Since she possessed that bygone era’s equivalent of a backstage pass, she was able to converse with him after the show. “You’re a genius,” she told him, having been impressed with his artistry. “Perhaps, Your Majesty,” Paderewski said. “But before that I was a drudge.” He meant that he had labored long and hard before reaching the mastery the queen attributed to him. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you Libras are currently in an extended “drudge” phase of your own. That’s a good thing! Take maximum advantage of this opportunity to slowly and surely improve your skills.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A chemist named Marcellus Gilmore Edson got a patent on peanut butter in 1894. A businessperson named George Bayle started selling peanut butter as a snack in 1894. In 1901, a genius named Julia David Chandler published the first recipe for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In 1922, another pioneer came up with a new process for producing peanut butter that made it taste better and last longer. In 1928, two trailblazers invented loaves of sliced bread, setting the stage for the ascension of the peanut butter and jelly sandwich to its full glory. According to my analysis, Taurus, you’re partway through your own process of generating a very practical marvel. I suspect you’re now at a phase equivalent to Julia David Chandler’s original recipe. Onward! Keep going!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): One of the most popular brands of candy in North America is Milk Duds. They’re irregularly shaped globs of chocolate caramel. When they were first invented in 1926, the manufacturer’s plan was to make them perfect little spheres. But with the rather primitive technology available at that time, this proved impossible. The finished products were blobs, not globes. They tasted good, though. Workers jokingly suggested that the new confection’s name include “dud,” a word meaning “failure” or “flop.” Having sold well now for more than 90 years, Milk Duds have proved that success doesn’t necessarily require perfection. Who knows? Maybe their dud-ness has been an essential part of their charm. I suspect there’s a metaphorical version of Milk Duds in your future, Gemini.

Classifieds Strength In Numbers

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In my vision of your life in the coming weeks, you’re hunting for the intimate power that you lost a while back. After many twists and trials, you find it almost by accident in a seemingly unimportant location, a place you have paid little attention to for a long time. When you recognize it, and realize you can reclaim it, your demeanor transforms. Your eyes brighten, your skin glows, your body language galvanizes. A vivid hope arises in your imagination: how to make that once-lost, now-rediscovered power come alive again and be of use to you in the present time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The etymological dictionary says that the English slang word “cool” meant “calmly audacious” as far back as 1825. The term “groovy” was first used by jazz musicians in the 1930s to signify “performing well without grandstanding.” “Hip,” which was originally “hep,” was also popularized by the jazz community. It meant, “informed, aware, up-to-date.” I’m bringing these words to your attention because I regard them as your words of power in the coming weeks. You can be and should be as hip, cool, and groovy as you have been in a long time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I hope you will seek out influences that give you grinning power over your worries. I hope you’ll be daring enough to risk a breakthrough in service to your most demanding dream. I hope you will make an effort to understand yourself as your best teacher might understand you. I hope you will find out how to summon more faith in yourself—a faith not rooted in lazy wishes but in a rigorous self-assessment. Now here’s my prediction: You will fulfill at least one of my hopes, and probably more.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The ancient Greek poet Simonides was among the first of his profession to charge a fee for his services. He made money by composing verses on demand. On one occasion, he was asked to write a stirring tribute to the victor of a mule race. He declined, declaring that his sensibilities were too fine to create art for such a vulgar activity. In response, his potential patron dramatically boosted the proposed price. Soon thereafter, Simonides produced a rousing ode that included the phrase “windswift steeds.” I offer the poet as a role model for you in the coming weeks, Scorpio. Be more flexible than usual about what you’ll do to get the reward you’d like.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Here’s the operative metaphor for you these days: You’re like a painter who has had a vision of an interesting work of art you could create—but who lacks some of the paint colors you would require to actualize this art. You may also need new types of brushes you haven’t used before. So here’s how I suggest you proceed: Be aggressive in tracking down the missing ingredients or tools that will enable you to accomplish your as-yet imaginary masterpiece.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Useful revelations and provocative epiphanies are headed your way. But they probably won’t arrive sheathed in sweetness and light, accompanied by tinkling swells of celestial music. It’s more likely they’ll come barging in with a clatter, bringing bristly marvels and rough hope. In a related matter: At least one breakthrough is in your imminent future. But this blessing is more likely to resemble a wrestle in the mud than a dance on a mountaintop. None of this should be a problem, however! I suggest you enjoy the rugged but interesting fun.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One of the saddest aspects of our lives as humans is the disparity between love and romance. Real love is hard work. It’s unselfish, unwavering, and rooted in generous empathy. Romance, on the other hand, tends to be capricious and inconstant, often dependent on the fluctuations of mood and chemistry. Is there anything you could do about this crazymaking problem, Aquarius? Like could you maybe arrange for your romantic experiences to be more thoroughly suffused with the primal power of unconditional love? I think this is a realistic request, especially in the coming weeks. You will have exceptional potential to bring more compassion and spiritual affection into your practice of intimacy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to dream up new rituals. The traditional observances and ceremonies bequeathed to you by your family and culture may satisfy your need for comfort and nostalgia, but not your need for renewal and reinvention. Imagine celebrating homemade rites of passage designed not for who you once were but for the new person you’ve become. You may be delighted to discover how much power they provide you to shape your life’s long-term cycles. Ready to conjure up a new ritual right now? Take a piece of paper and write down two fears that inhibit your drive to create a totally interesting kind of success for yourself. Then burn that paper and those fears in the kitchen sink while chanting “I am a swashbuckling incinerator of fears!” ∆
