Cal Poly faculty try living on campus with their students

T

hree Cal Poly faculty members were the first to spend the school year living among their students on campus through the university’s Faculty in Residence pilot program. Tina Muller, associate director of residential student experience for University Housing, said the Faculty in Residence program has been on the radar both at the University of California and California State University level. She said early national research shows that this program is having a big impact on student success. “And so for us, we at University Housing really try to focus on not just creating that comfortable residence hall but really how do we create spaces for students to succeed both academically, personally, and career-based,” Muller said. The program—a collaborative partnership sponsored by University Housing, Division of Student Affairs, and Academic Affairs—seeks to foster a community of care and facilitate an environment where learning and living are intertwined. The three faculty members are spread out between yak?it yutyu, Poly Canyon Village, and Cerro Vista Apartments. Muller said faculty members are in the student residence complexes to assist students– especially incoming freshmen—with answering their questions, connecting them with other faculty, and being their point of resource. The three faculty members—Nishanta Rajakaruna, associate professor in plant biology; Nathan Heston, full-time lecturer in the physics department; and Oscar Navarro, assistant professor in the School of Education—have dynamic personalities and interests that allow them to connect with students, Muller said.

SLO city employee put on leave after video release of bar assault

The punches landed suddenly and ferociously, and were captured on video. Camille Chavez and Isaac McCormack of Santa Maria were sitting together at the bar at Mr. Rick’s in Avila Beach on May 28, 2016—the day of the Tequila Festival. A stranger standing next to them at the bar, his back turned, repeatedly leaned into Chavez’s space. After several instances of this, Chavez leaned back against the man—Chris Olcott, a building inspector for the city of San Luis Obispo. Olcott quickly turned around and struck Chavez in the head with a swing of his elbow, knocking her to the floor unconscious. Olcott then punched McCormack in the face several times, before bar security intervened, tackling Olcott to the floor. “Totally out of the blue,” McCormack told New Times about the altercation. “I’d never seen him, never talked to him, he was a complete stranger to me. Before I could even think, we were being attacked.” Bar security footage, now nearly three years old, of the assault was made public on April 14 by CalCoastNews on YouTube, and it circulated

quickly to online viewers locally and beyond. McCormack verified the events caught on camera to New Times. In February, Olcott pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery charges, and was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years of probation. SLO County prosecutors had dropped felony charges, after a trial in 2018 resulted in a 7-5 hung jury. “I don’t know what the jury saw that everybody else isn’t seeing,” McCormack said. In a statement to New Times, District Attorney Dan Dow said the jury was “hopelessly deadlocked ... even after reviewing the video of the battery numerous times.” “This illustrates that no matter how chilling video evidence might be, a jury must still weigh and evaluate all of the other evidence before reaching a verdict,” Dow said. “After considering the significance of the earlier trial ... the defendant’s willingness to plead guilty ... and that he had no prior criminal history, we made the decision that the plea agreement would serve the interests of justice in this case.” Olcott’s attorney, Ilan Funke-Bilu, could be reached by press time. In the wake of the video’s release, the city of SLO placed Olcott on paid administrative leave, NEWS continued page 6

“pending completion of a confidential personnel investigation.” SLO officials said they had not seen the video prior to April 14. “We take these matters seriously. The safety and security of the community we serve, and our employees is of utmost importance to us,” SLO City Manager Derek Johnson said in a statement on April 16. “As the criminal proceedings in this matter have finally come to a conclusion, and additional information has been made publicly available, the city will thoroughly and quickly investigate the record to determine appropriate employment actions.” McCormack said he and Chavez, a special education teacher at Ernest Righetti High School, suffered concussions and other serious injuries in the assault. The most lasting, he said, is mental trauma. “I still think about it all the time,” McCormack said. “Fatal injuries could have come from this. We’re lucky that’s all that happened.” —Peter Johnson

Geiger found not guilty in deadly dog attack case

A former Grover Beach police officer was found not guilty of felony criminal charges in connection with a 2016 dog attack that killed one person and injured another. On April 12, after a month-long trial, a SLO County jury found 27-year-old Alex Geiger not guilty on one felony count of manslaughter and two felony counts of failing to maintain control of a dangerous animal causing serious injury or death. The jury began deliberations on the case at 9:23 a.m. and returned with its verdict at 1:40 p.m. the same day, according to court records. The charges against Geiger stemmed from an incident that occurred in December 2016 outside the home he rented in Grover Beach. Neo, a policetrained Belgian Malinois that Geiger privately owned, escaped from the home’s backyard and mauled 85-year-old Betty Long. The dog injured Long and killed her neighbor, David Fear, when Fear attempted to stop the attack. Geiger resigned from the Grover Beach Police Department in February 2017. Geiger was initially charged with the two counts of failing to maintain a dangerous animal, but the SLO County

District Attorney’s Office added the manslaughter charge in June 2017. The additional charge drew accusations from Geiger’s defense attorney Melina Benninghoff, who characterized the incident as a tragic accident and accused the DA’s Office of seeking criminal charges against her client because of political pressure from the families of the victims. Prior to the trial, Benninghoff attempted to have the prosecution of the case transferred to the California Attorney General’s Office or dismissed altogether— citing alleged interference from the DA’s Office—but was unsuccessful. District Attorney Dan Dow released a written statement shortly after the verdict was announced. “While disappointed with the result, the District Attorney’s Office wishes to thank the jury for their diligent service to our community in hearing the case of People v. Alex Geiger,” Dow said. “The facts of this case are tragic for all involved, and the incident has greatly affected the families of the victims Mr. David Fear and Ms. Betty Long.” Testimony during the trial included members of the Grover Beach Police Department, county Animal Services officials, and Geiger himself. While Geiger’s criminal trial is officially over, he also faces a civil lawsuit from Long and the Fear family. Proceedings in the lawsuit were halted until the resolution of the criminal case, according to court records. —Chris McGuinness

Diamond Cannabis Direct facilities raided by state

In late March and early April, state cannabis enforcement officials served search warrants at the facilities of popular SLO County cannabis delivery service Diamond Cannabis Direct— destroying 2,000 plants at its grow site in Arroyo Grande. Acting on tips from “confidential sources,” a California Department of Fish and Wildlife cannabis enforcement team searched one Los Osos residence, a Grover Beach office, and an Arroyo Grande warehouse on Mesa View Drive, according to department spokesperson Janice Mackey. Mackey told New Times that state officials found two unlicensed cultivation sites in the searches—including one indoor grow in a warehouse that was located next to a licensed grow in another building. Authorities destroyed some

2,000 plants in the unlicensed grow, but they did not abate plants from the licensed one. Mackey added that the delivery service itself was not licensed. Representatives from Diamond Cannabis Direct did not return New Times’ requests for comment. The company has a pending application at SLO County for a land-use permit, which hinges on a future vote by the Board of Supervisors. The Planning Commission previously voted 2-2 on the application—which meant it was not approved—and that result got appealed to county supervisors. A hearing date is not yet set, according to county officials. Diamond Cannabis Direct’s website states that it’s, “a nonprofit, exclusively top-shelf medical cannabis mobile dispensary servicing SLO County.” “Diamond Cannabis Direct cultivates a large portion of the medicine that we provide for our patients,” the website reads. “Our goal is to provide a complete wellness program through the highest quality medicine and proper industry education.” —Peter Johnson

Oceano general manager will be Cambria’s interim GM

The Cambria Community Services District (CSD) has made Paavo Ogren, Oceano Community Services District’s general manager, its interim general manager as it continues its search for a leader. During public comment at the April 11 Cambria CSD meeting, resident Christine Heinrichs thanked Ogren for his work with the district thus far. She also encouraged the district to continue searching for a permanent general manager.

by Jayson Mellom

“We can’t be discouraged at our plight or the fact that the right person hasn’t shown up yet. You are in the position of making a big difference in Cambria as you lead the community in a more environmentally responsible and financially sound path,” Heinrichs said. The board amended Ogren’s contract to change his position from strategic and organizational advisor (which he was appointed to in December 2018) to interim general manager until a new general manager joins the district or until Dec. 21, 2019. Ogren will continue to cost the district $99 per hour. He will be receiving some district benefits on a pro-rata basis, including health insurance, dental insurance, administrative leave, vacation leave, and sick leave. The board also approved establishing an assistant general manager position to be the liaison with internal district affairs. Ogren said that with his position he will be working more with external organizations, the communities, resource agencies, and the district board. “In this organizational approach, the assistant general manager really has to take a better leadership role especially in a situation where as an interim general manager, I’m here part-time so I’m extremely reliant on the assistant general manager to really work with staff, identify issues, and follow up on how we’re addressing them while I’m working with your board and the community,” he said. Ogren told New Times that changing the organizational structure of the department heads in Cambria is all he recommends to improve quality control and related fiscal impacts. When his time is up with the Cambria Community Services District he said will also be retiring from his position as the general manager of Oceano. Δ —Karen Garcia

ALL YOU CAN READ Liz Krieger and her band of volunteers host a book party every spring where an elementary school class can come and take as many books as they can carry home with them.

Book wonderland To keep the interest in reading alive, one local woman hosts book parties for kids

L

iz Krieger lives on Islay Street in San Luis Obispo in an olive green house with plenty of shrubbery out front. From the sidewalk it looks like an ordinary home in the neighborhood. But that feeling quickly fades the minute she opens the door. It’s like unlocking the gate to the Narnia of books. Every spring, Krieger welcomes teachers and classes into her home for book parties. Teachers who can’t bring their classes on a field trip to Krieger’s home go on their own to pick up as many books as they can for their students. On April 9, the first class of the year is scheduled to arrive at her home to get its book fix. About eight volunteers organize fruit plates, get books ready, and set up a lunch area for the kids. “These books are treasures,” Krieger says as she moves about her house in preparation for Christina Olson’s fifth grade class from Hawthorne Elementary. The party will include lunch for the students (pizza, fruit, and cookies), a book reading, an open book discussion, and an endless supply of books. Krieger moves colorful library carts around her house for students to pick books from. But those aren’t the only things stacked with literature. Bookshelves, cupboards, and bins full of paperbacks and hardbacks spread throughout the house, and all of them are organized by category and series. Krieger has books about everything from the ocean, dance, musicians, dinosaurs, and those by particular authors such as C.S. Lewis or J.K. Rowling. Her goal is to have something for every child who walks through her front door. Krieger taught history and government at Notre Dame High School in San Jose. From there, she and her husband, Dan Krieger, moved to Davis, where she served as the librarian for the Travis Unified School District (on Travis Air Force Base) for four years. When the pair

reached San Luis Obispo, she became the librarian for the San Luis Obispo Library, where she worked for 33 years. One of the things she says she loves about her career experiences is that some of the places she worked were rich in diversity. “One of the great things about ... the Air Force was that there were teachers of every race and ethnicity. Black, brown, and Asian; it was just so lovely to be around so many different people,” she says. As she instructs her volunteers to place seats in a circle for the incoming class, she says that one of the most important things for her is that students keep their own culture and also get the best of everything else. She believes they can do this through reading. But she didn’t always have a love for books. When Krieger was growing up with five other siblings and a mound of books as high as the ceiling, she says, she wasn’t the best reader. “When I was mad at my parents, I would tell them, ‘I’m going to have a big house with one book in it.’ And I didn’t care what it was,” Krieger says with a smile. In the kitchen, Zoya Rihal is putting together fruit platters for the kids. She’s been friends with Krieger for about 50 years now. They met after Rihal moved to the United States from India in 1967 and then moved to SLO two years later. Rihal began taking her children to the local library, where she began a friendship with the librarian, Krieger. When Krieger retired and started the book parties, she looked for authors and community members from different cultural backgrounds to read books or give talks to the classes. Rihal was one of her speakers. “I talk about Gandhi, books like Arabian Nights, clothes, and even toys from India,” Rihal says. The kids are so blessed to have someone like Krieger and her husband, who go to book sales and gather donated books for them to have, Rihal says. More

GIFTING BOOKS Liz Krieger has opened her home to schools, teachers, and, most importantly, students in order to give away donated books.

specifically, she says that she appreciates the emphasis that Krieger places on finding books that tell stories from people of other cultures. “This is the age when the kids want to learn about different things, and the more we expose them to the world, the more their horizon grows,” she says. “I get goose pimples of the happiness here.” Once the class arrives, the students take off their shoes and place their backpacks under some tables. “Hello, hello, hello. Bienvenidos,” Krieger greets them. The kids excitedly crowd around her and make their way to the living room where Krieger and other volunteers read an excerpt or two to the students. Once the open discussion is over, Krieger hands each student a bundle of books labeled with his or her name. This is the first time Olson, the fifth grade teacher, is attending the event—it’s her first year teaching at Hawthorne. She says Krieger sent out an email to the elementary school asking teachers to sign their class up for the party. The email included a survey for students to fill out

so Krieger could compile each student’s personal bundle of books (with the help of her granddaughter Lizzy). “It’s nice for a lot of them who don’t have access to books, their family might not be able to afford them, or they aren’t able to go to the library,” Olson says. “Also to be welcomed into a member of the community’s house and being provided food, it’s just something [the students] look forward to.” She’s also noticed how passionately her students talk about books and reading, which she attributes in large part to these book parties. Getting kids excited about reading in the classroom is still something teachers are trying to figure out, Olson says. As the students are left to roam from room to room in Krieger’s home, they recommend books to each other, look at the book covers, and talk to the volunteers. “I’d say that books help us when we’re down; they help us to see new things, and they help us smile,” Krieger says. ∆ Staff writer Karen Garcia can be reached at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

After 29 years in Santa Barbara County, the Live Oak Music Festival returns to SLO County BY GLEN STARKEY

C

hange is hard, but listening to music with friends is easy. Camping, getting away from it all, and soaking in nature—those are pretty good, too! For nearly three decades, a few thousand SLO County residents have spent every Father’s Day weekend in Santa Barbara County at the Live Oak Music Festival, but this year things have changed. The festival is moving to the weekend after Father’s Day—Friday, June 21, through Sunday, June 23—and to its new home at El Chorro Regional Park across Highway 1 from Cuesta College. If they build it, will you come? Local NPR affiliate KCBX 90.1FM, which runs the festival as its major annual fundraising event, sure hopes so.

Why move?

“It’s been a 29-year crapshoot down there [in Santa Barbara County],” KCBX General Manager Frank Lanzone explained. “On the top of our [lease] agreement with [Santa Barbara] County, there’s a huge statement that says if any fire entity needs this site to stage for fires, we could be preempted, and it’s stated in such as way that they could evict us.” “Yes, that’s in their agreement,” Santa Barbara County Parks Superintendent Jeffery Lindgren confirmed. “It’s in all the agreements of anyone using Live Oak Camp.” The Live Oak Music Festival did have a few close calls with fires. A few years ago, smoke was visible from the campground during the festival, and some attendees were concerned that evacuation might be necessary. On another occasion, firefighters were staged at Camp Live Oak right up until the day before festival volunteers were scheduled to arrive and start building the stage and other infrastructure, which takes at least four days. After a call from Live Oak’s security personnel, the firefighters packed up so as not to jeopardize the fundraising event. Lindgren said he doesn’t know of any occasion where an event was actually evicted due to fire, but it’s certainly a possibility. “It’s not always used when there’s a fire, but it is used on occasion,” Lindgren said. “I know they used it last year during the Thomas Fire.” The drought has also decimated the Live Oak campground. Many of the oak trees have died and been cut down; others are struggling to survive. The high fire danger also made camping problematic. For instance, in the past few years, campers have been warned against tying anything to the remaining trees—no parachutes or shade sails— because the branches are brittle. And it can be very hot off San Marcos Pass, even in mid-June. “Unfortunately, oaks take 100 years to grow and 100 years to die,” Lindgren said. “We started a replanting program, but it will be a long time before they’re mature. We’ve lost a lot of oaks, and we’re hoping the saplings survive.” Is Santa Barbara County sad to see the festival go?

The fest is scheduled from Friday, June 21, through Sunday, June 23, in El Chorro Regional Park, across Highway 1 from Cuesta College.

“It’s always felt like the Live Oak Music Festival was one of those ways that Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties came together in brotherhood,” Lindgren said, but he added that Live Oak Camp will go on without the music festival. “Live Oak Camp is basically booked every single weekend and lot of week days, from March through November. It’s still extremely popular and well used,” Lindgren said. In fact, one festival—Outside In Equinox—that was held in 2018 wanted to come back to Live Oak Camp this year but signed up too late, and the camp was already booked, according to Lindgren. “All the use does put a lot of pressure and impact on the camp, especially the big festivals,” Lindgren admitted, “but the majority of users are family reunions, quinceañeras, or other big groups that want to camp together.”

Returning home

Live Oak Fest has been in Santa Barbara County for so long that people forget that it started at Biddle Park (near Lopez Lake) in SLO County in 1989. The one-day event had about half a dozen acts anchored by headliner Maria Muldaur. About 500 people showed up, and by all accounts, it was a rousing success. So why did it move to Santa Barbara County the following year? “[SLO County] basically put up too many roadblocks for us to be able to continue and be successful, pretty much anywhere in SLO County within the parks department,” Lanzone said. “They were happy with it. We had a meeting afterwards, and they said, ‘We’ll write up what we think needs to happen and we’ll send it to you.’ They sent us this list of things, and I said, ‘Well, this is them telling us we can’t come back.’ Then we just started looking elsewhere.” SLO County has definitely changed its tune. “We’re very happy to have the Live Oak Music Festival coming to El Chorro Regional Park,” SLO County Director of Parks and Recreation Nick Franco said. “I can’t speak to what happened 30 years ago, since I wasn’t around for those discussions or that history. So I don’t know what made it difficult then. “There are inherent challenges with any large event, many of which often involve conflicting use, impacts to traffic and neighbors, noise, etc.,” Franco continued. “That’s one of the reasons El Chorro Regional Park is well suited to have this event. Those issues are more easily addressed at this location than they could be at many other locations.” Lanzone believes the county’s desire to make El Chorro Regional Park pay for itself has a lot to do with the welcome home. Half of the 18-hole Dairy Creek Golf Course was closed down due to a lack of irrigation water.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON Even though the Live Oak Music Festival is changing locations, attendees can expect the same great music and laid-back vibe that these dancers from a couple of years ago enjoyed.

“I think they’re trying to make that site profitable. Right now it doesn’t pay its own way, and so the Board of Supervisors kind of gave them marching orders to do things, be innovative, and they’re trying to do that,” Lanzone said. “They have some long-range plans for electric gokarts, and there’s going to be a zip line some day, and they’re going to build some small cabins.” Franco agrees. “Yes, we’re certainly hoping that the location works well for everyone and that this becomes an annual event at the park. It certainly fits well with the El Chorro Regional Park programming plan developed through many public workshops and finalized in June 2017,” Franco said. “Events like this also fit within the cost-recovery plan we brought to the Board of Supervisors to better structure our operations around the services we deliver. While the park is not yet at full cost recovery, these are the types of activities that will ultimately get us there.” Over the past 29 years in Santa Barbara, the festival became a huge success, growing from one day to three, with upwards of 2,000 campers and another 2,000 daily attendees coming every year. Its family-friendly atmosphere, sense of community, and laid-back vibe—not to mention a lot of

epic performers—have made it a tradition for a lot of people. Now that the Live Oak Camp tradition is ending, the El Chorro Regional Park tradition is hopefully beginning. “The biggest concern is that people won’t come,” Lanzone said. So far, though, everything looks like it’s falling into place. Both past attendees and newcomers are excited about the new location. According to festival Marketing Director Kelly McCleary, “Historically, Santa Barbara has been about 25 percent of our attendees, and SLO has been nearly 50 percent. This year, it appears we’re running just about the same, maybe a little more SLO and fewer Santa Barbarians, but not dramatic changes. Camping ticket sales are comparable to last year at this time for full festival, and day-ticket sales are well ahead. Reserved RV sites are already sold out. Based on ticket sales to date, the festival will likely sell out for full festival camping. We should have plenty of room for day-trippers.” Moving the festival closer to the home of the majority of the attendees and moving it after Father’s Day and graduation weekend may also be driving up day-ticket sales. “We were worried about changing the weekend,” Lanzone said, “but what we’ve


“Overall, when you think about the future of the festival and trying to make it accessible for more people, it makes sense to move it closer to home and KCBX and most of the attendees,” Newman added. “On the other hand, some people have been going for 29 years to Lake Cachuma, and there’s nostalgia and heritage there, so I understand that change is necessary but it’s not always easy.”

heard is people saying, ‘I can finally come because my father didn’t want to go.’ We’ve also heard people say, ‘I’m going to come because I can go home at night.’ We’ve even had volunteers say, ‘I’m going to go home every night,’ so it’s going to be different, a different feel.” What Lanzone is most worried about losing is the history that many have with the Santa Barbara location. “The nostalgia of it,” Lanzone said. “My family—four generations of us have been going to this thing. My dad was there, my grandkids come down, so it’s a tradition that we’re losing of that site and the history of people going there. “A mother told me her 16-year-old daughter said, ‘I’m not going to Live Oak at that [new] site. If they change the name I’ll go, but Live Oak is down there.’ I told the mother, I said, ‘Tell her that they changed the name of the camp after us. We didn’t make our name based on them.’” That’s true. When Live Oak Fest moved south, the campground was called San Marcos Camp. After the success of the festival, “They asked permission to use [our name],” Lanzone said.

The new venue

The Live Oak motto has been “peace, love, and dirt” because while the fest is filled with peace and love, Live Oak Camp was dry and dusty. Water trucks traversed the campground’s roads, spraying to keep the dust down. Other volunteers spent their time hosing down the vendor and audience areas for the same reason. People joked about “Live Oak feet” because if you were in flip-flops, your feet turned into a dirty brown mess. “That’s the first thing we started talking about—peace, love, and not so much dirt,” Lanzone said. “That, and we’ve had people say, ‘We don’t come anymore because it’s too hot.’ We’ve heard people say, ‘I’m coming again. I can live through this.’” El Chorro Regional Park is slightly smaller than Camp Live Oak—about 83 percent of the camping area—but it has more RV hookups and is a lot less dusty. Most of the El Chorro trees are not as mature as Live Oaks Camp’s, so the canopy isn’t as thick, but the weather

should be a lot cooler. Overflow camping will be directed to one of the unused Dairy Creek Golf Course fairways. Long-term and day parking will be on another unused fairway.

All about the music

Live Oak Fest may have started as a folk and bluegrass festival, but over the years it’s developed into an amazingly diverse selection of genres and performers. A few years ago, its KCBX organizers teamed up with Todd and Korie Newman of Good Medicine Presents, a local production company that mounts shows all over SLO and Northern Santa Barbara counties. Last year and this upcoming year, the lineup has been stellar. “[The booking] is going awesome,” Lanzone said. “We book one festival a year, and they’re booking 24/7, and so they have contacts, and people owe them favors, and they’re in it all the time. It’s going really well.” “I don’t think it boils down to favors as much as familiarity and the volume of activity in the industry,” Todd Newman countered. “We’re just in contact 365 days a year. In some cases, we’ve been in dialogue or had a relationship for over a decade with some performers and agents. “It’s also a draw for performers when they understand the powerful effect Live Oak has on the community, the connection Live Oak and KCBX have with the residents of SLO County, and the way the festival treats bands and performers is well known,” Newman said. Oftentimes, the festival draws big names because of the legendary excellent backstage catering services by Bon Temps Creole Café and the amazing dressing rooms that volunteers set up for performers. “[Todd and Korie] also put together a performers’ camping area, so they’ve gotten more performers camping, and people just get blown away when some big performer wanders into a campsite with an instrument and says, ‘Hey, what’s up?’” Lanzone added. It’s pretty amazing to see well-known performers mingle with campers. Last year, for instance, Michael Franti led a yoga

class, and he spent a lot of time greeting kids and fans who gathered around him as he walked through the festival. “The performer camping area has been a really enjoyable aspect of it all,” Newman agreed. “The first year we attended, we didn’t book the festival and were checking it out, but we had strong relationships with two of the performers—T Sisters and the California Honeydrops—who were playing the festival, and so we invited them to camp with us. We had such a great time, and it was Korie’s idea to do it more fully the next year. It’s a chance for the musicians to meet each other and to slow down and take in all that Live Oak has to offer.

Per tradition, the amazing multiinstrumentalist, music archeologist, raconteur, and snazzy dresser Joe Craven will return as emcee. There’s still the Main Stage, Hot Licks, Stage Too, Beer Garden, Kids Talent Show, and Kids Area, but there’s also the Botanical Garden, a great playground, hiking trails, and more. “Campers are asked to be respectful of the wildlife and plant life in the campgrounds. Any decor or set up that damages our leafy friends or poses a fire hazard will be asked to be removed,” Marketing Director McCleary said. “Campers’ cars may not exit and enter the lower camping areas after noon on Friday. Open fires are only allowed in the campground’s permanent rings and barbecues. Campers can have propane fire pits and barbecues. I can’t think of any other major policy/rule changes besides the different types of camping areas.” The music and fun are just two short months away. “We want more people to know about El Chorro Regional Park and the facilities we have there including the Botanical Garden, the dog park, playground, hiking trails, ball fields, and campgrounds,” parks department Director Franco added. “We hope that adding the new features will draw more people to the park, and we hope that events like the Live Oak Music Festival will give people a reason to come to the park over and over again.” Δ Contact Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey at gstarkey@newtimesslo.com.

Forced to shore Whale entanglement settlement abruptly ends Dungeness crab season

C

ommercial Dungeness crab fishermen, like 29-year-old Sean Harvell of Atascadero, are used to making their livings at sea until July, which normally marks the end of the winter-to-summer season. For smaller crabbing outfits, especially, the late season is a crucial time to bring in their hauls, Harvell said. “That’s due to the biggest boats moving on to other fisheries,” he explained. “[For] a lot of the smaller ‘ma and pa’ crabbing operations—whether it be here or all over the coast—a lot of that money comes in these final months.” But they won’t have that chance this year. Dungeness crab fisheries abruptly closed statewide on April 15—three months early—following a legal settlement between an environmental watchdog group, state regulators, and fishermen over the industry’s alleged role in whale entanglements. In 2017, the Center for Biological Diversity sued the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, claiming that Dungeness crabbing was at fault for a surge in entanglements—predominately among

humpback and gray whales—on the West Coast that peaked at 71 cases in 2016. In most cases, the outcome of whale entanglements remains unknown, however it can be fatal. In 2016 no deaths were reported in connection with entanglements, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In 2015, there were 61 entanglements with one reported death, and in 2014 seven died after being entangled, according to NOAA. The parties settled the suit in federal court in March. While its long-term aim is to force the state to obtain federal take permits under the Endangered Species Act, the settlement requires fisheries to close early this spring during whale migration season as an interim measure. Local fishermen told New Times that the closure order blindsided them and will put thousands of crabbers out of work without notice. “We prepare for slow seasons. We don’t prepare for no seasons,” said Lori French, who’s part of a third generation Morro Bay fishing family and a board member at Central Coast Women for Fisheries. “Everybody was totally caught off guard. The younger fishermen who don’t have other fisheries to go to, this is going to kill them. It’s just morally not right.” One of those young men is Harvell, who said he’s lost his source of income until October with the closure. Like many crab

fishermen, Harvell travels up and down the coast for work—from Eureka to Morro Bay. “I was due to be back at work in the next couple of weeks,” he said. “Now I don’t have a job to go back to.” Fishing industry members acknowledged that Dungeness crabbing has likely played a role in the entanglement uptick since 2014. But they say it’s been disproportionately targeted as the culprit— and given an extreme punishment. “I’m not saying we’re innocent by any means as far as things that could happen in the ocean with any fishing industry,” Harvell said, “but we’re not the main source of this issue.” French—who’s also on the board of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, a party in the Center for Biological Diversity lawsuit—said crab fishermen have been trying to address entanglements. Prior to the lawsuit, industry leaders were in talks with the state about ways to curb them, such as changing equipment designs. “We’ve been working on ways to avoid it,” she said. “We don’t want to entangle whales. They are majestic creatures.” French called the record 2015-16 season an anomaly. That year, she said, high levels of toxic domoic acid in the ocean closed fisheries in the early season, creating a rush in the spring. The unusually high presence of the acid, which stems from algae blooms, was bred by warmer water temperatures. “It had never happened before,” French said. Of the 71 whale entanglement cases in

2016, investigators were able to confirm the cause for about one third of them; Dungeness crab fishing gear was at fault for the majority, according to Center for Biological Diversity senior attorney Catherine Kilduff. “It won’t eliminate entanglements, but it focuses on the segment where we know most of the entanglements are happening,” Kilduff told New Times about the early season closure. “Those pots are being set where we know the whales are, in the season [they’re migrating].” Since 2016, entanglements have tapered, with 26 cases documented off California’s coast in 2017 and 35 in 2018. The numbers are still higher than historic averages, according to NOAA. Crabbing operations that use “ropeless gear” can continue under the settlement, Kilduff noted. But locals said that technology is scarce and cost prohibitive for many. “It’s a unicorn,” French said. The rules for future seasons are murky. It will take a few years for the state to obtain endangered species permits. This summer, stakeholders will convene to formulate industry regulations in light of the settlement. Meanwhile, fishermen are grappling with the early season closure, and what may come next. “Locally, I see it impacting generations of families who have fished and crabbed out of Morro Bay,” Harvell said. “They are literally devastating generations of family fishing. It’s really heartbreaking.” ∆ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

New digs, same news J oe Tarica, editor of The Tribune, started his journalism career at the then Telegram-Tribune in 1993, just a few months before the daily newspaper moved out of its digs on Johnson Avenue to a new building on South Higuera Street. The new office was large—formidable, you might say—built to house an entire standalone publishing operation. “That was a growing moment [for the paper],” Tarica told New Times. “The building was really well-designed for what we did. [It has] nice natural light, high ceilings and windows, the press room in the back—all the functions that we needed.” But in recent years, with each 21st century disruption of the news business, those offerings grew less and less vital. The press closed a few years ago, as McClatchy, The Trib’s parent company, consolidated its papers’ printing to cut costs. Following nationwide trends of declining ad revenue, the paper’s staff shrunk. All that industrial space just wasn’t needed anymore. So after more than 25 years of doing local journalism at that office, Tarica and The Tribune are moving to a new home. April 11 marked the paper’s last day on South Higuera. Starting April 15, they’ll

be located at 735 Tank Farm Road, a smaller and more suitable office for the newspaper in 2019. “It’s a much better setup for our operation now,” Tarica said. Speaking with New Times on their last day at the old building, Tarica said the transition has been bittersweet. In the process of moving over the past few months, the staff has dug up countless gems from the annals of Tribune (and, therefore, SLO County) history—old clippings, notebooks, artifacts, photos, camera bodies, and more, not all of which can be kept. “It’s really a walk down memory lane,” Tarica said. “We had to make some hard decisions on some of that stuff.” One previously buried item that made the cut for the new digs? A framed copy of one of The Trib’s original business licenses, dated to the 1880s. “We’re finding some of these things we didn’t know existed,” Tarica said Given all the stuff that’s surfaced, Tarica said he’s reached out to the SLO History Center about preserving material that’s important to local history. As far as the new office, Tarica said he’ll host an open house in the near

future to give the community a chance to check out where their local daily is made. While smaller, the space has all the latest tech needed for a modern news outfit. For those worried the move signals a decline in its news coverage, Tarica said not to fret. “It doesn’t reflect any loss or lack of commitment to journalism in this county,” he said.

Nuclear is the way to go Losing Diablo Canyon won’t clean up our air or our energy sources

L

ife on planet Earth depends on a healthy ecosystem. The state of California is headed in a troubling direction by shutting down a large, reliable, 24/7, sustainable, affordable source of emission-free power. Those who we voted to represent us and protect the health and safety of the residents of our state are making dangerous and devastating decisions by supporting the closing of Diablo Canyon Power Plant. The hope for clean air is being greatly compromised. This power plant produces five times the amount of emission-free power as Hoover Dam. The loss of power produced by Diablo Canyon will have to be replaced by burning fossil fuels that will release tons of unhealthy and harmful emissions, unabated, into our atmosphere when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow. Having to rely on burning fossil fuels to fill the gap is a big mistake. Emissions from burning fossil fuels will be such a disaster to our ecosystem, to our health, and for future generations. Diablo Canyon is capable of continuing to safely provide emission-free power for many years to come. Renewables, while essential in supporting the quest for clean air, cannot support a steady flow of energy to power our considerable needs—including the

What is not told openly to the public is the considerable environmental impact that comes from the huge amount of land needed for solar and wind installations. Chemicals used in manufacturing and broken-down installations (glass and metal), worn-out batteries, all becomes hazardous waste. No source of power is without its negative issues. The question that always arises when discussing nuclear power: What about the waste? The uranium 235 that’s used in producing nuclear power is only 5 percent or less enriched, of which only 3 percent is actually used to produce the power. This means the remainder of the fuel, 97 percent, is unused. This 97 percent can actually be recycled. When the uranium 235 atom is split, it creates heat and fission fragments of different sizes and different half-lives. Those half-lives can last only seconds, minutes, hours, days, a few months, a few years. At the end of 10 years, 90 percent of the radiation has decayed away. The Navy’s used nuclear fuel has been shipped safely to Idaho for many years without damage to the shipping containers or the fuel. Commercial used nuclear fuel remains safely stored onsite in huge steel and concrete canisters, which are designed for safe keeping for 100 years.

Letters Taking property without compensation

It seems to me that the cake is already baked when it comes to the location of the new homeless/warming/administration center in Grover Beach, and all the yard signs and attendance at council meetings are just a waste of time. As aptly reported by Peter Johnson (“At odds,” April 11), Peoples’ Self-Help Housing CEO John Fowler said it all when he said, “We need to make sure the needs and the services in that community are addressed.” What I take from Mr. Fowler’s statement is that the needs of the homeless community trump (sorry) the safety and home values of our citizens. Peter follows with, “For now, though, all signs point toward the project moving

forward as it was planned.” And from that, I sense the powers that be could care less about the affected citizens. They’re going to build this project whether people like it or not. From my point of view, this is a taking of property without compensation. For example, if I own a home with an ocean view and the neighbor in front adds a second story to his home that blocks my view, he has taken my property without compensation. He may be allowed to do this based on zoning and his deed, but it doesn’t change the fact that one day the value of my home included an ocean view and now my home is worth less because it’s gone. It’s the same thing with the homeowners adjacent to or near the Hillside Church. Owning a home next to a church is worth more than one next to a homeless/warming shelter. If one is shopping for a home and there are two similar homes in the same neighborhood offered at the same price, one near a church while the other is adjacent to a homeless shelter, which one are you likely to buy? I think we all know the answer to that question. I don’t have a dog in this fight as I live in the Village of Arroyo Grande and know full well that they’d never build a homeless center nearby. So I’m safe in heart and property value. But what I can say for sure is if I was in the position that these property owners find themselves, I’d be looking for the lawyers who stalled the Dalidio Ranch Project in SLO for 20 years or the legal team that killed the Walmart project in Atascadero. For only the courts and delay will prevent this project from being built. Gary Wechter Arroyo Grande LETTERS continued page 15


Opinion LETTERS from page 14

Oceano is critically underserved

This is in response to the news story “Visitors to county parks want ‘dynamic experiences,’ report says” (April 11): The 2019 SLO County Parks and Recreation report says, “The commission is committed to a long-term strategy for a strong park system for the benefit of people of all ages. National statistics show that parks, open space, and recreation programs are vital to our health, economy, and our environment ... essentially every person who lives in or visits San Luis Obispo County— needs parks. They provide a great range of benefits to locals and tourists. Parks provide intrinsic environmental, aesthetic, recreation, and societal benefits to our region, and they are also a source of positive economic benefits.” We agree. However, in the report, Nipomo is mentioned 14 times, the Bob Jones Trail is mentioned five times and is receiving much of the funding, and Oceano is mentioned zero times. The California Public Resources Code defines a “critically underserved community” as one that has less than 3 acres of usable parkland per 1,000 residents. To fall outside of this definition, Oceano should have more than 22 acres of parkland, but we have only 1 acre. Our single small park is on the west side of Highway 1, and most residents have to play Frogger to reach it because we don’t have a single crosswalk. Oceano is a critically underserved community, and it makes us eligible for grant funds to improve parks and recreation. How about making a bike/ walk trail along the Arroyo Grande Creek levee, so residents have a safe way to access the beach? How about creating parks on the east side of Highway 1, where most residents live? For too long, Oceano has been ignored, and is still ignored in the parks report. Despite the public requests of Oceano residents, the Board of Supervisors failed to direct county parks to include anything for Oceano, which remains disadvantaged, critically underserved, and ignored.

Maybe store music choices need more relevancy

Mike Robertson might be onto something (“The root cause of the world’s problems,” April 11). I, too, feel tortured when subjected to inane music while I’m trying to get some shopping done. When did it start, this idea that customers need some kind of mindnumbing noise in the background? I first noticed it when I was a college student working at a psychiatric hospital. I remember stopping in my tracks, as it suddenly occurred to me that the pipedin music was playing the theme from M.A.S.H. You know, that song otherwise known as “Suicide is Painless.” Now, I’m thinking if stores, etc., insist on playing music, how about if they select songs that at least are relevant? A subliminal truth in advertising, if you will. Here are my suggestions:

25th Anniversary!

Dear SLO County wildlife lovers,

Please share this information with friends, neighbors, and family! This is a reminder that springtime is “baby season.” Let’s help keep as many wildlife families together as possible and safe from humans and our pets. If you find an uninjured fawn, do not pick it up! Keep people and dogs away so that the mother can return. Fawns are often left alone for long periods of time while the mother (doe) goes off and forages for food. If it’s wandering and crying, call the Pacific Wildlife Care (PWC) wildlife hotline (805) 543-WILD (9453). If you find a bird that has no feathers, it is a hatchling/nestling and it needs to be put back in its nest (unless it fell from high, onto a hard surface; appears injured; or could be caught by a cat or dog). If parents do not return after a couple of hours to care for their nestling, call the PWC hotline. If in doubt, bring it to our clinic for an exam, and we can renest it later. Baby mammals are often orphaned in the spring. Do not cut trees or bushes or mow your lot in the spring unless you check carefully for nests or hidden babies. Do not trap and relocate opossums, raccoons, or skunks. The babies will soon grow up and the family will usually go on its way. If you need help, call our PWC hotline for solutions. Later in spring, you may see young fledgling birds on the ground “unable to fly.” Keep pets and children away. The parents will continue to care for their offspring for several days. The bird does not need rescuing. If you wish to volunteer in our clinic or baby bird room, sign up online at: pacificwildlifecare.org/volunteer. Thank you for caring for our SLO County wildlife. staff, volunteers, and wildlife patients Pacific Wildlife Care SLO County

Gag me with a spoon I Skip Moss, 2018

Winning Images Our 24th Annual Photography Contest & Exhibition will be held in May & June this year!

n November 2017, I wrote about the vital role played by Planned Parenthood—vital to women, vital to men, vital to families, vital to our communities. In fact, Central Coast Planned Parenthood health centers serve almost 32,000 patients annually, providing breast cancer screening exams, STI testing, cervical cancer screenings, and contraceptive services. Non-judgmental counseling at Planned Parenthood offers honest and comprehensive information about all pregnancy outcome options, thus empowering women to make decisions that are best for them and their families. In other words, Planned Parenthood treats women and patients respectfully and with the credo that each individual should be able to make an informed choice about their health. And along comes Trump, again. We already know that he likes to control women, that he feels free to fondle them in an assaultive manner, and that he will expend money to silence them. But in his bid to pander to a narrow constituency of ideologues, last month the Trump administration announced a gag rule to stifle women’s health options and attack Title X safetynet providers like Planned Parenthood. You remember that Title X is the federal program established in 1970 to help low-income people access birth control and essential, preventive care like STD testing. From the beginning, Title X has

enjoyed bipartisan support; since 1976 when the Hyde Amendment was adopted, no federal funds are used for abortions at Planned Parenthood or any other health clinic. Of the 4 million Title X women and families, 41 percent receive their care from Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood correctly calls the gag rule “the most dramatic threat to health care access and our reproductive rights since extreme lawmakers tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act and block access to care at Planned Parenthood two years ago.” Here’s a few draconian effects: • prohibit abortion referrals, even when requested by patients; • require coercive counseling standards and mandated prenatal care for pregnant patients; • require clinics to physically and financially separate Title X-funded (non-abortion) activities from abortionrelated services. Moreover, the gag rule would allow providers to offer intentionally misleading information. They can steer patients who may be considering abortion to crisis pregnancy centers that do not offer comprehensive or even legitimate medical services. First Amendment protection allows these organizations to propagate misinformation, such as the claim that abortion is linked to breast cancer and psychosis. Most crisis pregnancy centers actually discourage contraception, including condoms,

Sound off New Times readers took to Facebook to share their thoughts on our April 11 news story, “Grover Beach homelessness project backers, opponents hope for compromise.”

David Lawrence, 2018

Opening night at SLOMA is June 19. See our websites for more details!

asserting that condoms do not prevent STDs. That’s actual Fake News. The American Medical Association (AMA) Journal of Ethics calls these centers “deceptive” and “unethical.” The AMA, folks, is not a fly-by-night group. It leads more than 100 legitimate medical and public health associations speaking up to oppose the gag rule, which, in itself, is obviously unethical. In addition to the AMA, those organizations include the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the National Hispanic Medical Association, and an overwhelming number of individual doctors, nurses, and other health care practitioners. In fact, the AMA and Planned Parenthood are suing the Trump/ Pence administration to prevent the gag rule from going into effect. Julie Mickelberry of Central Coast Planned Parenthood reminds us that “the state of California, led by Attorney General Xavier Becerra, also filed suit, recognizing that 25 percent of all Title X patients live in California. “While we are challenging the gag rule in court,” Mickelberry adds, “the administration is already fundamentally changing the Title X program. Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services announced the 2019 Title X grantees. Four Planned Parenthood affiliates lost their Title X grants—which will impact over 40,000 patients. “And right here in California, a crisis pregnancy center—which does not prescribe or give any information about contraceptives—received a Title X family planning grant for $1.7 million.” If the AMA and Planned Parenthood litigation is unsuccessful, the gag rule will go into effect in just 15 days, on May 3, 2019. How many times and how many ways have women’s voices been gagged and ignored? In a society that sanctions lies to women about their health and reproductive rights, it’s not a leap to a culture of rape and sexual assault. Both discount women—like a president who brags about grabbing them wherever. Have you read the harrowing stories of Cal Poly women who were raped and sexually assaulted? Senior Amelia Meyerhoff recorded accounts by dozens of Cal Poly students: see “The Clapback: An Investigation of the Sexual Assault and Rape Culture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo” at the-clapback.com. Over and over, these women protest unwanted advances and say, “No.” They go unheard, first by the rapist, and then by legal systems and administrations. It’s time to stop disrespecting, gagging, and ignoring women. And it’s certainly time to stop lying to women. Mickelberry stated on email that if the gag rule isn’t stopped, Planned Parenthood California Central Coast will not accept Title X funding. They will carry on despite a concussive hit to their budget. “We will never force our doctors to lie to our patients,” she assured. ∆ Amy Hewes is actively involved in grassroots political action.

The Shredder

Sucker punch L ike a broken clock that’s correct twice a day, “news” blog calcoastnews.com and its cofounder Karen Velie got something right this week! Velie and her blog—found guilty of libel in 2017—broke news of a disturbing incident concerning a SLO city employee. On April 15, Velie wrote about Building Inspector Chris Olcott, who pleaded guilty to assaulting two people in Mr. Rick’s in Avila Beach on May 28, 2016. Velie’s blog also included a link to a YouTube video of the incident captured on Mr. Rick’s security system. In the video, Righetti High School special education teacher Camille Chavez appears to lightly brush against Olcott as she and her companion, Isaac McCormack, order a drink at the bar. In response to this egregious intrusion of his personal space, Olcott twice shoves his fat ass into the couple as they await bar service. After the second time, Chavez pushes back. Olcott then elbows Chavez in the face, knocking her unconscious, and punches McCormack in the head three times before security personnel jump in and subdue Olcott. Chavez was taken to the hospital by ambulance, and both she and McCormack were diagnosed with concussions. The video makes the entire altercation crystal clear. Olcott’s attack was unprovoked. So

why did his 13-day trial on a felony charge of battery with serious bodily injury end in a hung jury? Were the jurors blind? According to Velie’s April 15 blog posting, “Chavez said she overheard a juror ask why Olcott should lose his job because of two drunk Mexicans in a bar.” Racism, eh? Classy! Where was SLO County Superior Court Judge Jacquelyn Duffy? She couldn’t see what was going on and direct the jury to put aside their prejudices and judge the case based on its merits? Instead, Olcott was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge, and he’ll begin serving a mere 60-day sentence on May 20. Weak sauce! Not only that, but until recently Olcott was still working for the city inspecting buildings. After Velie’s story and the video came to light, City Manager Derek Johnson issued a statement: “We take these matters seriously. The safety and security of the community we serve, and our employees, is of utmost importance to us. The employee is currently on administrative leave pending completion of a confidential personnel investigation.” Paid administrative leave, in case you’re wondering. Enjoy your vacation, asshole. If there’s any justice, that leave will become permanent. Hopefully Chavez and McCormack will sue your Punchy McGee ass.

In other news, SLO Town has won yet another award! Go us! In what almost feels like satire, Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet, whose motto is “Respect the Quiet™,” issued an April 11 press release titled “San Luis Obispo: Paradise Lost,” which said, “San Luis Obispo, California, an otherwise gorgeous community halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, has won this month’s Noisy Dozen Award from Noise Free America for allowing an avalanche of noise from motorcycles, loud car stereos, dirt bikes, and leaf blowers. While SLO is home to a near-perfect climate, seven mountain peaks, and nearby beaches, the city’s noise levels render it ‘paradise lost.’” Winner-winner, chicken dinner! I’d like to thank all the little people who made this happen: the party-hardy college students, the street racers with aftermarket mufflers, the mow-blow-andgo yard maintenance experts—you’re the true unsung heroes of this award! The press release goes on to quote Jack Sheridan, a 43-year resident of SLO, who said, “The noises that plague me are guns, motorcycles, and dirt bikes. Unfortunately, it is legal to shoot outside the city. Dirt bikes are my biggest complaint. I feel my heart rate increase whenever I hear them in the distance. Awful! Harleys with modified exhaust mufflers are a problem in town whenever

some aged idiots cruise up and down Higuera and Marsh streets. These olds guys remind me of kids putting cards in the spokes of their bicycles. To what end? A 10-year-old seeks this attention, but a 60-year-old?!” I’m surprised Mr. Sheridan found the time to write to Noise Free America to complain. Between standing in his bathrobe on his front porch shaking his cane at neighborhood kids and screaming at them to get off his damn lawn, to leaving sternly worded notes on cars parked the wrong way on his street, I imagine he’s pretty busy. The press release also quotes SLO resident Greg Koby, who complained about “boom cars” and their use of “dangerous sub-woofers.” “‘Live elsewhere?’ asks Koby. ‘I’m lowincome; my choices are severely limited,’” the press release continued. Um, you realize California is one of the most expensive states in the U.S., right? And SLO Town is the most expensive city in the county. Dude, you could move almost anywhere and live more cheaply than here! “According to Koby, ‘Oprah got it wrong. This town is a noise hell. I’m counting down the months, weeks, and days until I finally move.’” Oh shit! Greg’s going to move unless everybody shuts the hell up! SHHHHH!!!!!!! ∆ The Shredder is hunting wabbits. Be vewy vewy quiet. Send ideas and comments to shredder@newtimesslo.com.

Balto rocks The Siren … for free!

T

he best free show you’ll see this week is when Portland band Balto plays The Siren this Thursday, April 18 (8:30 to 10:30 p.m.; 21-andolder; free). Immediately accessible, this is a band you’ll feel like you already know. Fronted by Dan Sheron, who rocks a mustachioed Frank Zappa look, Balto delivers driving road music filled with ripping guitars, crashing drums, and Sheron’s open-armed vocals. Call them indie rock, psychedelic rock, power pop— whatever—they’re a blast. The band’s loose beginning started in NYC after singer-songwriter Sheron returned from a failed journalism career in Russia, though his bio weaves a more dramatic story: “At 21, after a failed attempt to begin a journalism career in Moscow and an overwhelming heartbreak, Dan Sheron’s life collapsed. Without so much as saying goodbye to his friends or bothering to pack a bag, Dan took a train bound for Siberia and headed east with a child’s guitar and journal that quickly filled with songs. At some point in those manic months, Balto was born, in a third-class train car, singing and drinking among strangers, somewhere east of Novosibirsk.” Journalists, right? Always embellishing. “Over time, Balto transformed from a songwriting vehicle into a rock ’n’ roll band—performing a boozy, swaggering style of American music rooted at the intersection of Motown, Big Star, Plastic Ono Band-era Lennon, and Jackson

Browne. Their interactive live performances have drawn comparisons to fiery indie rockers My Morning Jacket and Wilco, while Seattle-based curators Artist Home describe their most recent LP, Strangers, as ‘a tangle of beautiful, messy emotions, wrapped up in a sound that’s warmly familiar yet brimming with soul and tiny details that are touched by magic.’” Sounds about right. Sheron’s a terrific songwriter who brilliantly skewers our baking sheetshallow culture on the song “Bullshit Dreams”: Snapchat, pornhub, cyber sex/ Electronic cigarettes/ Spray tan on the president/ Just working on a dream I guess// Slimfast, botox trophy wives/ Pool boys, fuck boys, magic mikes/ You’re so pretty, won’t you get in line/ A face like that goes viral// Thrift store cowboys, basic chicks/ Glamour camping, selfie sticks/ Check your online presences/ Never mind the grandeur// Influencers indie bands/ Wookies, festies, lifestyle brands/ electric kool aid acid test/ Except that you can stream it.” How this is a free show I don’t know, but take advantage of it! Also at The Siren this week, Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents has teamed up to bring you Copper Chief on Wednesday, April 24 (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $10 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $12 at the door).

The Fremont Theater has a five-show slate this week, but the biggest concert is probably five-time Grammy Awardwinner Christopher Cross, who scored a series of early-’80s hits with “Ride Like the Wind,” “Sailing,” “Never Be the Same,” “Arthur’s Theme,” “Best That You Can Do,” “All Right,” and “Think of Laura.” He plays this Friday, April 19 (8 p.m.; all ages; $36.69, to $66.02 at fremontslo.com and Boo Boo Records), as part of his Take Me As I Am 2019 Tour. Cross’ 1980 self-titled debut album won five Grammy Awards, including—for the first time ever—the four most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”), and Best New Artist. According to press materials, his newest album, Take Me As I Am, “is a unique offering from Christopher Cross, a hybrid of sorts—the songs are instrumentals with choruses to create the lyrical landscape. This is not quite a ‘guitar’ album, but it leaves the listener with no question about his expertise on the subject.” Cross said about the project: “It was a blessing to work with all these talented folks in the making of this album, which holds so many bittersweet emotions for me. I didn’t expect to make another one, but it’s what we do.” Don’t forget about Superorganism at the Fremont Theater this Thursday, April 18 (9 p.m.; 16-and-older; $24.96 at Boo Boo’s and fremontslo.com). This international music collective’s live show is a visual and sonic feast. Rapper Earl Sweatshirt plays the Fremont on Sunday, April 21 (9 p.m.; 16-and-older; $36.69 at fremontslo.com and Boo Boo’s). The child prodigy who released his first album at 16 is, like a lot of rappers, unafraid of tooting his own

Featuring longtime friends and collaborators, Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih, the minimalist guitar-based pop act adds percussionist Malcolm Martin when touring. The Orlando-based band got its start in 2013 with the release of “renee,” and has since gone on to get exposure for the singles “big sis,” “ivy,” and “jamz.” I’m guessing they dig e e cummings and his eschewing of capitalization!

Frog and Peach has two great shows this week starting with Americana singer-songwriter M. Lockwood Porter on Saturday, April 20 (10 p.m.; 21-andolder; free). He’s on the road supporting his new album, Communion in the Ashes. His songs reflect on our bitterly divided society and polarizing politics, yet his songs spring for hope, “encouraging those who listen to focus on activism and community-building rather than despair,” his bio said. “Born into a working-class family in rural Oklahoma, Porter graduated from Yale University and then moved to San Francisco to teach in an inner city school system while launching his songwriting career. In the midst of the nation’s most expensive real-estate market, he had a close-up view of the growing class divide and its many symptoms, including poverty, gentrification, and homelessness. During these experiences, Porter wrote Communion in the Ashes, and with its

Springsteen-sized catharsis, the album offers listeners a soundtrack with which to rise up, rebuild, and renew.” Also at the Frog, check out three-band touring collaboration Hot Sweet N Sour on Tuesday, April 23 (10 p.m.; 21-and-older; free). Featuring three of Portland’s talented, up-and-coming bands, expect “a unique sense of humor … and … a lush and high energy night of entertainment. You will dance. You might cry,” read press materials. Sweet N’ Juicy is touring in support of their newly released sophomore album, The Adventures of Sweet N’ Juicy. Get ready for party music from a band that performs in fruit costumes. Funky hip-hop sprinkled pop act A Hot Mess is touring in support of their debut, Funk Finger. Their motto is, “Let’s get messy!” Laryssa Birdseye is a folk singer who accidentally started writing pop music. She uses humor and honesty to enchant her audiences.

It looks like a mad scientist put it together at the turn of the century.” For those not into the steampunk aesthetic, Friesen also invites participating artists to decorate their whale in whatever way suits their fancy, perhaps with crystals for a bling whale or a more modest, unadorned au naturel whale. Whether people are brand-new to polymer clay or have been working with it for years, Friesen said all will be accommodated and engaged. “No one feels left behind or bored,” she said. “It’s not stressful, it’s very supportive of where you are in your creative journey. This will be the place to explore your imagination.” Δ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley is peering through a monocle. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

riter-director Chris Butler (ParaNorman) helms this stopmotion animated adventure about Sir Lionel Frost (voiced by Hugh Jackman), who’s invited to the Pacific Northwest by Sasquatch—aka Mr. Link (voiced by Zach Galifianakis)—who hopes Frost will take him to the Himalayas to meet his long-lost relatives, the Yetis. With free-spirited adventurer Adelina Fortnight (voiced by Zoe Saldana), the trio sets out to find Shangri La. (95 min.)

Glen I was really hoping for stopmotion animation along the lines of Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox and Isle of Dogs, Duke Johnson and Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa, or even Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Frankenweenie, but instead this seems to be a mix of stop-motion and green screen CGI. It’s still undeniably visually arresting, but it’s not nearly as quaint and charming as the previously mentioned films. Frost, a cryptozoologist desperate to be accepted into a men’s club led by Lord Piggot-Dunceby (Stephen Fry), keeps trying to find evidence of various mythical creatures. The film opens with his search for the Loch Ness Monster. Unfortunately, even though he discovers the creatures, coming back with irrefutable proof is difficult. PiggotDunceby and the other members reject him and go one step further. They send henchman Willard Stenk (Timothy Olyphant) after Frost to thwart his Himalayan expedition. What follows is the trio’s misadventures and Stenk’s relentless pursuit. There’s some bad blood between Frost and Adelina Fortnight so part of the story is about their reconciliation, which frankly happens too easily to have any resonance. Most of the film’s humor is courtesy of Galifianakis’ Mr. Link, a literalist who must learn to understand Frost’s bone-dry sarcasm. The whole thing is cute enough, and the various creatures learn their valuable lessons, but I was a bit underwhelmed. Anna It certainly had its charms but didn’t quite hit the spot like the various

MISSING LINK

What’s it rated? PG What’s it worth, Anna? Matinee What’s it worth, Glen? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 other films you mentioned. The set-up and story are simple enough, and as with most animated flicks, the real meat comes from the voice work. Missing Link undeniably has some great talent behind it—Galifianakis as Mr. Link is endearing in that sort of lost puppy way, and Jackman plays a self-involved dude with an ego to boot, but not so lost in himself that he can’t be redeemed. Fry pulls off the bad guy, down to the dastardly mustache, and Emma Thompson gets her evil queen persona practically perfect as the Yeti elder. It’s definitely aimed at kids, and while of course that is expected in an animated feature, I do relish when the humor plays to both the intended audience and the people tasked with watching them. After all, you can’t send young kids off to the movies alone, so why not spice it up enough that the parents can enjoy it as well? Mr. Link, or Susan as he prefers to be called, is alone in the woods when Frost first encounters him, and instead of being a brutish monster, he’s just a pretty normal guy in search of others like him. He wants help searching for his family members, which he believes are the Yetis that live in the mythical Shangri La, and the trek to get there makes up most of the adventure. Ultimately, it’s a film whose message is to recognize and appreciate the love and friendship that was around you all along, and that sometimes a dream chased ends up being anything but what you thought it would. It’s got a lot of cuteness and there’s a laugh here and there, but it’s not going to get logged anywhere in my brain but as a kids’ movie, and not the best out there. Glen It certainly feels like the film’s messages are overly obvious and

telegraphed. Frost thinks of Mr. Link as a bumpkin unworthy of his respect and nowhere near his equal. Want to guess if that changes? Frost also thinks PiggotDunceby and the other “great men” of his club will give him prestige and credibility. But they—not Mr. Link—turn out to be the knuckle-draggers trapped in the past and fearful of the future. Frost thinks Fortnight needs a man like him but soon learns she doesn’t need anything or anyone because she’s self-reliant. Mr. Link thinks he needs to be with his Yeti brethren, but they reject him as being foreign and different. He learns he must find his own family through his friendships with others. These are all great messages for kids, but they lack nuance. Should you bring your children to see this? Sure, spring for the matinee so you can see it on the big screen. Just don’t expect to feel delightfully entertained yourself. I nearly dozed off a few times. Anna Neither of us is huge on animated films, though I do hold a lot of warm nostalgic feelings for some in particular.

What’s it rated? PG Where’s it showing? Bay, Downtown

We do both really like stop-motion animation stuff, and apparently at the end of the credits there is a behind-thescenes clip about how this film and its characters were made. We didn’t stay for that. I did, however, find a video on YouTube that talked about this film, the studio, and techniques that were used and combined. As suspected, this film employs stop-motion animation, CGI, and 3D rendering to create its effects. Honestly, that behind-the-scenes stuff was pretty fascinating. I’d probably watch that again over the film! There’s a lot to like about Missing Link, but I can’t help but feel like there was still something … well, missing. The character is funny and lovable, and there’s no shortage of adventure, but I suspect this is one the kids will enjoy and adults will soon forget. Make it a matinee or wait for this to show up on your kids’ radar for home viewing. Δ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

HELLBOY

What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Park, Stadium 10 Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday) directs this R-rated franchise reboot based on Mike Mignola’s graphic novels about well-meaning half-demon, Hellboy (David Harbour), who this time around battles an undead sorceress (Milla Jovovich) bent on destroying the world. This third live-action Hellboy film features a script by Mignola and Andrew Cosby. The first two films—Hellboy (2004; PG-13) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008; PG-13)—featured Guillermo del Toro as writer-director. He apparently wasn’t offered full creative control on this new film so he didn’t participate. Ron Perlman, Hellboy in the first two films, refused to come back without del Toro. As far as most film critics are concerned, this was a huge mistake, but I disagree. It’s true that del Toro’s singular vision brought Hellboy to life on the big screen, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Perlman was better in the role than Harbour, but this reboot is a lot of fun if you like serious gore and violence. The splatter-fest certainly earns its R rating. The biggest problem with the film is its so-so story, which would appear to be counterintuitive since graphic novel creator Mignola is on board as screenwriter, but there’s something flat and predictable about the whole affair. Some of the backstory is familiar, for instance how Hellboy is the spawn of a Nazi experiment,

t’s Easter morning. You’ve got your VHS copies of It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown and VeggieTales: An Easter Carol ready to go, and all’s right with the world. It’s a tradition I’m sure we all share, but why not switch things up for once? The 1973 musical, Godspell, may not have Snoopy or Larry the Cucumber, but it does have Jesus. At first glance, you probably wouldn’t realize the film’s main character—a beardless white man with an afro sporting overalls and a Superman T-shirt—is Jesus (Victor Garber). But in the context of the movie, which sets the story of Christ in 1970s New York, it almost makes sense. Based on the off-Broadway show—which premiered only a few years prior to this screen adaptation—Godspell revolves around Jesus and a band of enthusiastic, youthful disciples (nine rather than 12). The opening of the film shows each disciple abandoning their respective walk of life—one’s a ballet dancer, one’s a taxi driver, etc.—after hearing the call of John the Baptist (David Haskell), who urges them to repent, discard their earthly belongings, and be baptized in the Bethesda Fountain at Central Park. The park is the first of many New York City locales to be beautifully showcased in the film, which was shot entirely on location. Other spots include Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Lincoln Center. There’s even a dance number on the roof of the World

Since I haven’t read the graphic novels, I have no idea if this story lines up with those, but some relationships don’t feel well developed. The one between Hellboy and his adoptive father Professor Broom (Ian McShane) seems very glossed over. McShane is typically awesome. He could read the ingredient list off a box of cereal and I’d be mesmerized, but he’s underutilized here. Harbour’s performance, on the other hand, feels very reserved. Hellboy is a wiseacre, but Harbour’s one-liners don’t have the same zing as Perlman’s. Jovovich is given little to do as Trade Center’s North Tower, which was only nearing completion at the time of the film’s production. But what makes these set pieces so impressive is the way the film somehow disguises the city, making it look completely empty. Before the baptism scene, the film’s setting is the New York we’re used to seeing—crowds of people crossing intersections, taxi cabs driving around, and so on. But after the baptism, there aren’t any other human beings in sight other than Jesus and the disciples. The whole city basically becomes their playground. And I haven’t even talked about the songs yet. Composer Stephen Schwartz, probably best known for Wicked, wrote all of them except for one—“By My Side” by Peggy Gordon. The song is the only one left over

Nimue other that look hot and act cruel. Without a doubt, the film’s best and most creative component is its special effects and creature effects. The dismembering, skewering, and disemboweling is very inventive, and Hellboy looks positively gross—greasy and waxy like the fetal pig you had to dissect in 8th grade. Harbour’s deep-set eyes make him look even more disturbing. Everything you need to know about this film can be summed up in its rottentomoatoes.com score, which is 15 percent critics’ score and 63 percent audience score. If you’re a Hellboy fanboy, you’ll probably dig it. If you’re more on the critical side, you’re going to miss del Toro’s presence immensely. (120 min.) —Glen

from playwright John-Michael Tebelak’s original production of Godspell, which was his master’s thesis at Carnegie Mellon University in 1970. Although Schwartz was brought in to write brand-new songs for the play, he insisted on keeping “By My Side” as he saw no point in trying to replace it. “Where are you going? / Can you take me with you?” one of the disciples sings after Jesus wanders off alone, visibly worried about something.

There’s something about the imagery of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane I always find moving, even when it’s represented allegorically, here and elsewhere.

PET SEMATARY What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Rent it Where’s it showing? Downtown Centre, Galaxy, Stadium 10 Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer (Holidays, Starry Eyes, Absence) co-direct this new adaptation of the Stephen King novel about a supernatural burial ground. When Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) and his wife, Rachel (Amy Seimetz), move from Boston to rural Maine with their two children, they soon discover something weird is going on in the forest near their home. I sure wish movies could still scare me. I remember being freaked out as a kid, my imagination run amok, but I don’t believe in the occult, so these days, horror movies never horrify me. That said, there are some creepy moments in this second adaptation of King’s Pet Sematary, a few good jump scares, some good acting and directing, but as far as delivering real chills, nope. Nada. The whole point of the story is the mystery of what lies beyond this mortal coil. Rachel, whose sister died young, wants to shield her daughter, Ellie (Jeté Lawrence), from the thought of death and talks about heaven, but Louis thinks making up stories about an afterlife is wrong and states matter-of-factly that nothing exists after death. When Ellie’s cat, Church, is hit by a truck, their neighbor, Jud (John Lithgow), helps Louis bury the animal in a special plot of land, and the next day Church magically reappears. He’s a bit tattered and worse for wear, but more importantly, he does not act like the same cat, yet Jud and Louis think they’ve saved Ellie from the pain of death. If you know anything about Stephen King, you know it’s just a matter of time before someone precious dies, and someone has the bright idea to plant that someone in the resurrecting ground. “They don’t come back the same,” Jud ominously intones. He’s right. Unfortunately, raising the dead isn’t as exciting or scary as it sounds. The film’s watchable but not exceptionally so, and many viewers will know the story from either the book or the 1989 film of the same name, for which King wrote the screenplay, so it’s predictable. For their part, directors Kölsch and Widmyer, and writers Matt Greenberg and Jeff Buhler, mix up the story a bit, so even if you know King’s tale, there are a few surprises to be had, but fundamentally it’s the same idea: We don’t know what lies beyond life, and we probably shouldn’t know! In general the family seems sort of cursed. Louis, a former emergency room doctor who has taken a job as a college physician, is soon haunted by a college student who was hit by a car, and who Louis couldn’t save. Rachel is haunted by her dead sister. Their sprawling new property is haunted by a weird burial ground. Their poor kids are in for a real terror ride. Gage (Hugo Lavoie) is too young to know what’s going on, but Ellie definitely wants to go back to Boston. Jeté Lawrence is really good in the role. She looks like a young Sissy Spacek, and the script gives her a lot to do, especially in the film’s final third. Clarke as Louis is also good—he’s a man being forced to confront his entrenched beliefs, a rational man who discovers his world is no longer rational. This new adaptation is certainly better than a lot of recent horror films, but it’s nowhere near as good as some inventive new entries

THE PUBLIC What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Matinee Where’s it showing? The Palm Emilio Estevez (The Way, Bobby) does it all as the writer, director, producer, and lead character Stuart Goodson, a librarian who helps a group of homeless men stage an act of civil disobedience by staying in a public library after hours to avoid the freezing cold. This film toys with society’s views on several issues, including how we’re handling homeless shelters, the homeless population in general, political figures using everyday issues to their advantage, social media, and fake news. With all these topics in mind, the film doesn’t do the best job of cohesively weaving them together. It all begins with a weather report that Cincinnati is bracing for a bitter cold snap, the warming shelters are filling up, and two homeless individuals have already died from the plummeting temperatures. Next we’re introduced to Stuart, who works at the Cincinnati Public Library, a place for information seekers and a refuge for the homeless during the winter season. Stuart knows and talks to almost all the homeless, who he refers to as his “regulars” and who wait until the library opens to use the restrooms, read, or use the computers quietly. They’re respectful aside from the one or two who suffer from a mental illness, like the man who sang “I Can See Clearly Now” in his birthday suit. It’s a relatively normal day until closing time, when Jackson (Michael Kenneth Williams)— one of the regulars—informs Stuart that he and large group of individuals won’t be leaving the library, as they don’t have anywhere to go. The situation is seen as a lockdown, prompting detective Bill Ramstead (Alec Baldwin) to come in and negotiate with the group. Coincidentally, Ramstead is looking for his son, who’s homeless and dealing with addiction. The situation also calls for prosecutor and mayoral candidate Josh Davis (Christian Slater) to diffuse the situation. Side note—Davis already has a negative outlook on Stuart as Stuart is part of a lawsuit where he and another employee asked a patron to leave the library on account of his odor. Davis sees this as an advantage for his candidacy and feeds negative information of Stuart’s criminal record to skew news coverage of the lockdown. A lazy TV reporter (Gabrielle Union) preoccupied with getting online “clicks” goes along with painting a negative picture of

the occurring incident. While the men in the library aren’t doing anything other than avoiding the cold, the situation feels like it’s escalating when a SWAT team is called in. While Estevez does a relatively solid job of laying out a story that humanizes the homeless population—something we too often forget to do, in my opinion—he doesn’t really spend a lot of time on the homeless characters in the film. There are plenty of mentions that some of the men are veterans, some have mental illness, and others are just down on their luck, but instead of making them relatable people, they feel more like a point being made. The film might have also been a little bit more powerful if the best lines were given to someone other than Estevez; actually, Estevez should have had a smaller part, period. In an era of dehumanizing people and political situations The Public, a little too simply, urges us to think twice about differing populations of people and the way we handle certain situations. While I’m not saying you should run to the theater the first minute you get, the film is worth seeing in theaters. I believe it has an earnest message, but its delivery could have been better.

First of the Season! NOW OPEN!

The Sun in Northern Santa Barbara County is looking for its next staff writer, but we’re not looking for just any article-pushing, source-wrangling, story-chasing someone.

OKUI’s Strawberries

Are you sick of editing or regurgitating press releases day after day? Or maybe it’s those damn list things— you know the ones: “Top 10 hottest places to eat your lunch on a rainy day.” Or maybe it’s just not being able to put the time and reporting into a story that deserves it: the weeks and repeated phone calls that give a story what it needs to ripen into the hard-charging, data-filled narrative it’s dying to be; the time that turns a “meh” story into one that blows a hole in the status quo.

Can you see the big picture of what a story means to a community? Is that what drives you? Do you know what it takes to—yes, we know, it’s cliché—make a difference in the lives of the people you cover? Does that sort of thing matter to you? If so, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for: a staff writer who isn’t afraid to take on the tedious, the tenuous, or the talented. That certain someone who can wrestle a story to the ground and fill it with the things that matter to the communities we cover at the Sun and New Times. Oil, agricultural, water, and environmental advocacy aren’t the only things that drive this place—although those are pretty juicy beats. There’s more, and we want to hire someone who can drive his or herself to unearth those stories and tell them in a meaningful way.

All of the food is made by hand, fresh, and fried to order with quality ingredients. The fried chicken on my The Kluck ... That’s Kluckin’ Good sandwich was crispy, light, and moist. Tender morsels of meat blanketed by a warm brioche bun so soft and beautifully golden brown. “It costs more money to make it like that, but that’s what makes it special,” Joanna said. “You can make a turkey sandwich at home, you know? People come out to have something they can’t have at home and hang out with their friends in the community.” ∆

NEWS NIBBLES THE WINE COAST New digs: Thanks to the help of a California Department of Food and Agriculture grant, the wine organization formerly known as SLO Wine Country announced a new name on April 16: the San Luis Obispo Coast Wine Collective. “Our new name and look better represent our uniqueness as an intimate ultra-coastal wine region on California’s Central Coast,” collective Executive Director Anne Steinhauer said in a press release. “We are amplifying what makes our wines different and our region so distinctive.” The Wine Collective encompasses three member wineries in two American Viticulture Areas (AVAs), the Edna Valley and Arroyo Grande Valley, as well as vineyards in the Pismo, Avila, and Cambria areas. The release alluded to an umbrella AVA that would capture the region’s “unified growing conditions” as something that’s in the works. ... Malibu Brew Coffee in Atascadero is now open in its new location at 5955 East Mall. After closing up shop at the longtime El Camino Real spot across from Sunken Gardens (due to construction of a multi-use two-story building on the lot) and a few months of work, Malibu Brew opened its new spot—which is also across the street from Sunken Gardens—on April 11. The shop now carries Doc Burnstein’s Ice Cream, and you’ll still find the same smiling faces behind the counter serving up the same roasted coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and more.

WORTH A DRIVE Hop on the trolley: For a trip through wine country that’s a little bit different, the Santa Maria Valley Wine Trolley is gearing up for its third season of round-trip excursions into wine country every weekend. The 2019 season begins on May 11. For $10 (in advance; it’s $18 at the trolley), you can hop on and off the trolley as it completes its route from Costa de Oro Wine Tasting Room

The first sip that slipped between my lips was too salty. But as the fresh wavy noodles soaked up the broth, that flavor evened out into a sort of perfection that sang to me. Maybe I’m being a bit too dramatic about the taste, but I can’t help it if that’s how I feel. And as I started slurping away before one of my evening classes at Cal Poly, everyone was asking me what I got. “Menka,” was my reply. “What?” was the reply back. “Ramen!” I exclaimed between slurps of noodles, pork chashu, and wood ear mushrooms (which I love). The place known as Menka Ramen on Foothill Boulevard is less than a year old, but the savory rich tonkotsu broth is almost perfect. I ordered the Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen to-go because who doesn’t like a little bit of spice in their soup life? They packaged noodles et al (green onions, corn, pork, mushrooms) separate from the broth, because nobody likes soggy noodles. And I plopped it all together from the comfort of the desk I was sitting at, chopsticks at the ready. It’s only my second time having ramen; a January trip to Nozaru Ramen Bar in San Diego may have actually changed my life. I still dream about the perfectly soft-boiled and seasoned egg that floated in a bright red spicy broth next to a pile of shaved green onions. And Menka’s seasoned egg was up to the task with a squishy yolk and sweet salty finish. Get your ramen on at Menka Ramen, 799 E. Foothill Blvd., suite A, in San Luis Obispo from 5 to 10 p.m.; from $11 to $15 for a bowl of something brothy. ∆ Editor Camillia Lanham is all about that soft-boiled egg.

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) will hold Public Hearings on June 5, 2019 on the Proposed Final 2019 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS), Corresponding Conformity Analysis and Determination, the Proposed Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR), and the Draft Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Plan. At two public hearings, first on March 6th, 2019 held in San Luis Obispo and second on April 3rd, 2019 held in Atascadero, the SLOCOG Board received public comments on both the draft RTP and PEIR. On June 5th, 2019, the SLOCOG Board will consider certification of the final program EIR and approval of the 2019 RTP. The 2019 RTP is SLOCOG’s long range regional transportation plan for each mode of transportation. The plan identifies financial projections through 2045 and the SLOCOG Board of Directors’ priorities on specific projects expected to be accomplished. The plan contains the documentation to support a finding that the 2019 RTP and SCS meet the air quality conformity requirements for ozone. This long range “plan” can be amended at any time by the SLOCOG Board. The RTP serves as a foundation for the development of the shorter “action” plans called the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), which satisfies California transportation planning requirements, and the federal counterpart referred to as the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) for all transportation projects that require federal approval or are “regionally significant.” A recent addition to the RTP is the SCS, first fully included as an element of the 2014 RTP/SCS in response to Senate Bill 375 - the Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008. The SCS is intended to reduce the passenger vehicle greenhouse gas emissions associated with the plan. The 55-day public review and comment period began on February 9, 2019 and continues through April 22, 2019 for the RTP, SCS, and Conformity Analysis. Additional information pertaining to these documents is posted on the SLOCOG website at: https://slocog.org/2019RTP. The draft PEIR provides an analysis of potential environmental impacts related to the implementation of the 2019 RTP and SCS as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The 45day public review and comment period for the EIR began on March 5, 2019 and continues through April 22, 2019. Additional information pertaining to these documents is posted on the SLOCOG website at: https://slocog.org/2019RTP. The draft RHNA Plan distributes projected housing units, a projection which was determined by the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), for the County of San Luis Obispo and its seven cities. Following a public comment period, the SLOCOG Board adopted the RHNA distribution methodology on February 6th, 2019 to be used in the draft RHNA Plan. Individuals wishing accessibility accommodations at this meeting, under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), may request such accommodations to aid hearing, visual, or mobility impairment (including Limited English Proficiency [LEP]) by contacting SLOCOG offices at 781-4219. Please note that 48 hours advance notice is needed to honor your request. Please refer to www.slocog.org for the meeting agenda and further information. The hearing will be held during the SLOCOG Board meeting that begins at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, in the County Board of Supervisors’ Chambers, County Government Center, 1055 Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo, California. On June 5, 2019, the SLOCOG Board of Directors will consider for certification the PEIR, consider for adoption the 2019 RTP, SCS, and associated Conformity Analysis, and review the draft RHNA Plan prior to distribution. For more information, write to SLOCOG, 1114 Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, or contact James Worthley (805) 788-2002, or email at jworthley@ slocog.org. April 18, 2019

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Imagine your future self sends a message to you back through time. What is it? Freewillastrology.com. ARIES

LIBRA

(March 21-April 19): French writer Simone de Beauvoir sent a letter to her lover, Aries author Nelson Algren. She wrote, “I like so much the way you are so greedy about life and yet so quiet, your eager greediness and your patience, and your way of not asking much of life and yet taking much because you are so human and alive that you find much in everything.” I’d love to see you embody that state in the coming weeks, Aries. In my astrological opinion, you have a mandate to be both utterly relaxed and totally thrilled, both satisfied with what life brings you and skillfully avid to extract the most out of it, both at peace with what you already have and primed to grab for much more.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Curcumin is a chemical found in the plant turmeric. When ingested by humans, it may diminish inflammation, lower the risk of diabetes, support cardiovascular health, and treat digestive disorders. But there’s a problem: The body is inefficient in absorbing and using curcumin—unless it’s ingested along with piperine, a chemical in black pepper. Then it’s far more available. What would be the metaphorical equivalent to curcumin in your life? An influence that could be good for you, but that would be even better if you synergized it with a certain additional influence? And what would be the metaphorical equivalent of that additional influence? Now is a good time to investigate these questions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The Beat Generation of American poets arose in the late 1940s as a rebellion against materialistic mainstream culture and academic poetry. It embraced sexual liberation, Eastern spirituality, ecological awareness, political activism, and psychedelic drugs. One of its members, Jack Kerouac, tweaked and ennobled the word “beat” to serve as the code name for their movement. In its old colloquial usage, “beat” meant tired or exhausted. But Kerouac re-consecrated it to mean “upbeat” and “beatific,” borrowing from the Italian word beato, translated as “beatific.” I bring this to your attention, Taurus, because you’re on the verge of a similar transition: from the old meaning of “beat” to the new.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Scattered through the ordinary world, there are books and artifacts and perhaps people who are like doorways into impossible realms, of impossible and contradictory truth.” Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges said that, and now I’m passing it on to you—just in time for your entrance into a phase when such doorways will be far more available than usual. I hope you will use Borges’ counsel as a reminder to be alert for everyday situations and normal people that could lead you to intriguing experiences and extraordinary revelations and life-changing blessings.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The Free Will Astrology Committee To Boldly Promote Cancerian’s Success is glad to see that you’re not politely waiting for opportunities to come to you. Rather, you’re tracking them down and proactively wrangling them into a form that’s workable for your needs. You seem to have realized that what you had assumed was your fair share isn’t actually fair; that you want and deserve more. Although you’re not being mean and manipulative, neither are you being overly nice and amenable; you’re pushing harder to do things your way. I approve! And I endorse your efforts to take it even further.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Many experts who have studied the art and science of running fast believe that it’s best if a runner’s legs are symmetrical and identical in their mechanics. But that theory is not supported by the success of champion sprinter Usain Bolt. Because he has suffered from scoliosis, his left leg is a half-inch longer than his right. With each stride, his left leg stays on the track longer than his right, and his right hits the track with more force. Some scientists speculate that this unevenness not only doesn’t slow him down, but may in fact enhance his speed. In accordance with current astrological variables, I suspect you will be able to thrive on your asymmetry in the coming weeks, just as your fellow Leo Usain Bolt does.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo adventurer Jason Lewis traveled around the world using transportation powered solely by his own body. He walked, bicycled, skated, rowed, pedaled, and swam more than 46,000 miles. I propose that we make him your role model for the next four weeks. You’re primed to accomplish gradual breakthroughs through the use of simple, persistent, incremental actions. Harnessing the power of your physical vitality will be an important factor in your success.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “I have the usual capacity for wanting what may not even exist,” wrote poet Galway Kinnell. How abut you, Scorpio? Do you, too, have an uncanny ability to long for hypothetical, invisible, mythical, and illusory things? If so, I will ask you to downplay that amazing power of yours for a while. It’s crucial for your future development that you focus on yearning for actual experiences, real people, and substantive possibilities. Please understand: I’m not suggesting you’re bad or wrong for having those seemingly impossible desires. I’m simply saying that for now you will thrive on being attracted to things that are genuinely available.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in,” wrote Sagittarian novelist Jane Austen. I’m guessing you’ve had that experience—maybe more than usual, of late. But I suspect you’ll soon be finding ways to express those embryonic feelings. Congrats in advance! You’ll discover secrets you’ve been concealing from yourself. You’ll receive missing information whose absence has made it hard to understand the whole story. Your unconscious mind will reveal the rest of what it has thus far merely been hinting at.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): All over the world, rivers and lakes are drying up. Sources of water are shrinking. Droughts are becoming more common and prolonged. Why? Mostly because of climate change. The good news is that lots of people are responding to the crisis with alacrity. Among them is an engineer in India named Ramveer Tanwar. Since 2014, he has organized efforts leading to the rejuvenation of 12 dead lakes and ponds. I propose we make him your role model for the coming weeks. I hope he will inspire you to engage in idealistic pursuits that benefit other people. And I hope you’ll be motivated to foster fluidity and flow and wetness everywhere you go. The astrological time is ripe for such activities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A blogger named Caramelizee offered her definition of elegance: “being proud of both your feminine and masculine qualities; seeing life as a nonending university and learning everything you can; caring for yourself with tender precision; respecting and taking advantage of silences; tuning in to your emotions without being oversensitive; owning your personal space and being generous enough to allow other people to own their personal space.” This definition of elegance will be especially apropos and useful for you Aquarians in the coming weeks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You Pisceans have been summoning heroic levels of creative intensity. You’ve been working extra hard and extra smart. But it seems that you haven’t been fully recognized or appreciated for your efforts. I’m sorry about that. Please don’t let it discourage you from continuing to express great integrity and authenticity. Keep pushing for your noble cause and offering your best gifts. I’m proud of you! And although you may not yet have reaped all the benefits you will ultimately sow, three months from now I bet you’ll be pleased you pushed so hard to be such a righteous servant of the greater good. ∆
