eing a homebody doesn’t mean you have to be physically inside of your home all the time.

County sues Megan’s Organic Market to shut down cannabis grow

T

he remote California Valley isn’t the only region under fire by San Luis Obispo County in its fight against marijuana grows deemed to be non-compliant with a recent county policy. After hitting five Cal Valley pot growers with lawsuits, the county is now suing Eric Powers— co-owner of Megan’s Organic Market, a local medical marijuana delivery service. The county is seeking court authorization to abate Powers’ cannabis plants on Clark Valley Road in Los Osos, under the charge that the landowner, Susan Veley, has an outstanding code enforcement case on the property. “When the ordinance was put in place [last August], everything on the property had to be in compliance to give approval to an existing grow,” said Art Trinidade, a county code enforcement supervisor. “There were some code violations, and we said, ‘This thing has to be solved.’” Powers said he leases the 35-acre plot of farmland, where he cultivates a half-acre of medical cannabis that’s then delivered to more than 1,000 registered patients throughout the county. The code case on the land dates back to 2012, four years before Powers became the tenant on the property in early 2016. One building on the property—a living structure and an equestrian facility—was constructed without permits, according to the lawsuit. Powers told New Times he was made aware of the code case when he tried to register his grow last fall under the county’s urgency ordinance. According to Powers, he received a letter in January of “provisional approval” for his grow pending the code case—but a “timeline or deadline” to resolve the code issue was not included: “They just said there was a problem.” In April, the county told Powers his registration was denied. In June, the county inspected the property and found cannabis growing and is now seeking abatement.

He co-founders said he was eventually Megan Souza and Eric told that, “they’d been Powers face backed up on emails an uncertain and they were sorry.” future as Despite meeting with SLO County the county, and getting sues to stop conflicting responses the delivery service’s from staff, he was cannabis grow ultimately told the in Los Osos. denial would stand. “It’s just so upsetting,” Powers said. “[The code case] has nothing to do with me. I didn’t build it. I just happened to get wrapped up in this.” Veley, the property owner, said she’s had trouble trying to resolve the case with the county. “I’ve agreed to do anything they want in order to correct the problem, and nobody can figure out how to resolve the problem,” Veley said, adding that Powers had “done nothing wrong.” Trinidade, with code enforcement, countered that Powers, and other growers in similar situations, were made aware “from day one” of the code compliance requirement. He said that the county received 160 grow applications that required code corrections, and that “all but 10 have fully complied.” “People can do it if they really want to,” Trinidade said. “At some point you have to say, ‘We’re done.’” In more than a decade of cultivating commercial cannabis in the county, it’s Powers’ first legal trouble. He and Megan Souza cofounded Megan’s Organic Market in 2013 with a mission to “improve the health of our community by providing safe and reliable access to quality organic medical cannabis,” according to the company’s website. “We’ve been in business a long time and never had an issue with law enforcement,” Powers said.

Fight erupts over CalCoastNews name As the embattled CalCoastNews seeks to appeal the $1.1 million libel verdict handed down by a jury in March, the local businessman defamed by one of its articles now owns the company’s LLC. Documents show that Charles Tenborg, the Arroyo Grande waste-management business owner who successfully sued CalCoastNews over a 2012 article about him, registered a limited liability company (LLC) called “CalCoastNews/UncoveredSLO.com” with the California Secretary of State’s office in June. The name appears to be an exact match to the LLC previously registered under the name of CalCoastNews owner and reporter Karen Velie, who was named as a party in Tenborg’s lawsuit along with co-founder and reporter Daniel Blackburn. Speaking to New Times, Tenborg said

The Board of Supervisors authorized the County Counsel’s Office to pursue litigation against non-compliant grows on May 23. County officials have told New Times that taking growers to court is the fastest way to halt marijuana cultivation. Three of the county’s previously filed cannabis suits are still pending while two were dismissed due to growers who voluntarily stopped cultivation, according to county officials. Megan’s Organic Market faces a tenuous future as the county writes a permanent cannabis ordinance that will supplant the urgency ordinance. The current draft of the policy places a numerical cap on how many grows are allowed in the county—100— and offers first priority to cultivators who successfully registered their grows under the urgency ordinance. Powers said he’d challenge the lawsuit, and he hopes that the county’s future regulations will enable Megan’s Organic Market to grow its medicine locally. “It’s really unfortunate for the potential future of our business,” he said. “We’re going to fight it and drag it out as long as we can. We have to stand up for what we believe in: safe and affordable access to medicine.” Δ —Peter Johnson he registered the company name after the Secretary of State’s office suspended CalCoastNews’ original LLC, freeing it up for someone else to claim. “One of the rules is that someone else can come in and grab the corporate name,” Tenborg said. “I reserved the name.” According to information from the Secretary of State’s website, Velie filed articles of organization for an LLC under the CalCoastNews/UncoveredSLO.com name in 2009. A spokesperson for the Secretary of State’s office said the entity was suspended in May for failure to file a biennial statement of information. Documents show that Tenborg registered the name in June and filed a statement of information July 8. Tenborg acknowledged that he currently has no control of the CalCoastNews website, personnel, or content. In a July 18 post, NEWS continued page 6

VIEWER DISCRETION

NEWS from page 4

CalCoastNews addressed rumors that the site itself had been “taken over” by Tenborg. “Rest assured that CalCoastNews remains an independent news source,” read the post, which did not include a byline. Velie declined to comment on the matter. While Tenborg has control of the LLC, he and his attorneys continue to fight in court over control of the CalCoastNews website domain. According to court filings, Velie transferred ownership of the calcoastnews.com website domain to a Cayucos resident named Dennis Pfister in early April, shortly after a jury issued its $1.1 million judgment against the website, Velie, and Blackburn. According to Tenborg and his lawyers, the domain name is property that could be used to satisfy some of the $1.1 million judgment against CalCoastNews. In court filings, Tenborg’s attorneys claimed that the transfer to Pfister was fraudulent and voidable. “We are moving forward to obtain ownership of the domain,” Tenborg told New Times. “The fact is that [Velie] basically transferred ownership of the domain to another entity after the verdict. We are going to seek to have that reversed.” That battle will occur in SLO County Superior Court, where both parties are participating in debtor examination hearings to determine just how the damages will be paid to Tenborg. As part of that process, Tenborg’s lawyers are attempting to serve Pfister with an order to appear in court but have thus far been unsuccessful, according to court records. Collection proceedings against Blackburn were suspended after he filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy shortly after the verdict. While the judgment proceedings play out in SLO County court, CalCoastNews has already filed an appeal of the case with California’s 2nd District Court of Appeal. Hearings in that case have yet to be scheduled. In the meantime, the future of the website, and Velie’s role as its owner and reporter, remain uncertain. “This ain’t over ’til it’s over,” Blackburn wrote an email response to questions from New Times. “Without Karen Velie, CalCoastNews is just alphabet soup.” —Chris McGuinness

County Dems elect chair from SLO Progressives

Hoping to put recent spats and divisions behind them, the SLO County Democratic Party Central Committee elected a new chairperson to try and steer the party to victory in upcoming elections. Voting members of the committee elected Rosemary Wrenn Canfield as its chairwoman at a July 17 meeting. Canfield, an educator and former teacher at the Bellevue Santa Fe Charter School, won 33-24 against her opponent, Lucia Mar School District educator and union leader Donna Kandel. “I believe in our mission and I believe in our vision,” Canfield told members of the central committee in a short speech prior to the vote. Speaking with New Times, Canfield said she hoped to energize local Democrats and make the party a more visible participant in the community. She assumes the chair after the local party has struggled with infighting following the 2016 general election. Her predecessor, Don Stewart, abruptly walked out of a June 19 meeting following a tense back-and-forth with other members over parliamentary procedure. Canfield expressed confidence that she could help close that divide. “It’s very clear that we all share some core and common values,” Canfield said. “My goal is to stay focused on those. If we stay focused on those common values, I am confident we can achieve our mission.” Those who spoke in support of Canfield at the July 17 meeting said they believed that she could effectively lead them down the path of winning some of the 111 local seats up for grabs in 2018, more than half of which are held by Republicans. “She has the leadership skills,” said SLO County 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson. Canfield is also a member of the SLO Progressives, a 1,500-member club that continues to grow its influence on the party since the 2016 election. According to the group’s website, Canfield is a member of the SLO Progressives’ advisory board and one of 14 members of a “progressive slate” elected as state-level party delegates

for the 35th State Assembly District. Prior to the vote on the chair, the central committee members passed a resolution to allow the organization’s full membership, including those 14 delegates, to vote for the chair. Before that, only members representing the county’s supervisorial districts could vote for a chair. In a post to the SLO Progressives’ Facebook page, the organization said its members were “delighted” with Canfield’s victory, and looked forward to working to elect Democrats to local, state, and national office. —Chris McGuinness

Water board shuts down Cambria’s brine pond

The Cambria Community Services District (CCSD) has been ordered to cease operating the brine pond connected to its controversial water facility and come up with a plan to get rid of the waste its holding by Aug. 14. The Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board made the decision to issue a cease and desist order against the pond at a July 13 hearing in Watsonville. The board started investigating the pond—which collects discharge and other waste from the sustainable water facility located next to San Simeon State Park campgrounds— after flooding occurred at the facility in January and March. Released on July 18, the order stated “the work plan shall include a timeline for removing all wastes from the surface

impoundment [brine pond] at the earliest possible date, but not exceed five years.” Failure to comply with the order may result in a fine of up to $1,000 per violation per day. “The cease and desist order was issued on the grounds that the facility has multiple design flaws and is not considered compliant with Title 27 design requirements,” said Jon Rokke from the water board. CCSD board Vice President Greg Sanders said that the board was already looking into decommissioning the brine pond. “The only issue we had was a plan on emptying the pond, but we’re working on a plan and are satisfied with the water board decision,” Sanders said. The water board issued a civil liability complaint and fine against the CCSD in February for chronic late submittals of monitoring reports regarding the pond between November 2015 and January 2017. The CCSD has paid the fine in full, $53,596. The district is still working toward certifying the water facility’s environmental impact report (EIR) to get a regular coastal development permit. The CCSD board will discuss certification its next July 27 meeting. —Karen Garcia

Sophistication Paso Market Place proposed for downtown unsettles neighbors, awaits City Council approval

A

former owner of Justin Vineyards and Winery is hoping to bring a new “sophisticated marketplace” to downtown Paso Robles: The Paso Market Place, a 16,597 square-foot, mixed-use project proposed at 1803 Spring St. However, some neighboring residents and at least one City Council member aren’t quite sold. Applicant Deborah Long is asking to develop the vacant lot between 18th and 19th streets—the former site of Hometown Nursery, before it changed locations and then closed. Four “urban country style” buildings are proposed to be constructed on the site, which would be connected by breezeways and house 15 to 20 restaurants, cafes, shops, and stands with a “handpicked selection” of local food purveyors. The project would also repurpose a historic Victorian house on the corner of the property into a restaurant. In addition to the ground-level market, the proposed project includes six apartment units on the second floor of two of the buildings. If given the green light by the Paso City Council, the marketplace would eventually welcome merchants like an artisan cheese maker, wine collective,

gelato counter, bakery, spice vendor, flower shop, and butcher and attract both locals and tourists, according to Cheryl Wieczorek, a project representative and former CFO of Justin Vineyards under Long’s ownership before it was sold in 2010. While Long declined an interview with New Times, Wieczorek told the Paso City Council on June 20 that her vision for the project came from observing similar varieties of markets in Northern California, like the Ferry Building in San Francisco and the Oxbow Public Market in Napa Valley, as well as marketplaces internationally. “Debbie believes this project is a natural progression for Paso Robles,” Wieczorek said. “It’s meant to be a walkable, family friendly, neighborhood destination as well as a perfect stopping point for a seasoned traveler.” The Paso Planning Commission recommended approval of the project to the City Council on May 23. Despite that recommendation, the Paso City Council voted 3-0 on June 20 to table a final decision on the proposal (with Steve Gregory recusing himself due to a property conflict and Fred Strong absent). To approve the plans, the council has to

sign off on a zoning code amendment to allow for “specialty retail” at the site, as well as two setback exceptions. The council also heard from several of the project’s neighboring residents concerned about the market’s proximity to their homes, and the resulting loss of privacy, overflow parking, and increased noise and smells. An alleyway behind the buildings would serve as the buffer between the marketplace and neighboring homes and also the location for food deliveries and trash bins, according to the design documents. “I do not believe the size and design is appropriate for this neighborhood,” neighbor Sharon Roden told the City Council. “It does not blend the Victorian and Craftsman designs of the neighborhood. This building is designed to a height of 36 feet overlooking our backyard and the backyards of others. It is also where all the garbage containers are located as well as the loading and unloading zone. Clearly, I’m concerned about privacy, noise, and the offensive smells and what trash usually attracts.” While Mayor Steve Martin and Councilman Jim Reed expressed tentative support for the project, Councilman John Hamon felt the proposed architecture (“agrarian design themes … with contemporary use of glazing, metal roofing, and natural wood siding,” according to a city staff report) fell out of line with downtown Paso’s character.

town. It doesn’t fit in my mind what Paso Robles is about,” Hamon said. “I have a problem with the design. With a beautiful Victorian on the corner … it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t come together well.” In its vote to delay a decision, the City Council directed the applicant team to meet with neighboring property owners to discuss the concerns. City officials said that discussion took place on July 6 and led to a few tweaks in the plans, including the addition of parking spaces and a significant reduction in the number of tandem spaces. The City Council will revisit the project at its Aug. 1 meeting. Δ Contact Staff Writer Peter Johnson at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Continuing a legacy M usical numbers, the latest in fashion, and a live auction are just the highlights of the Phyllis’ Musical Revue & Fashion Show. It’s a charity event put together by Madonna Inn owner Phyllis Madonna, Cheri Humphrey (the inn’s retail manager), and countless others. For the past 30 years the proceeds PHOTO COURTESY OF THE WOMEN’S SHELTER PROGRAM

LEGACY Phyllis Madonna passes on the torch of her charity work to the Women’s Shelter Program, which will continue the legacy of her musical fashion show charity event.

have gone toward the Women’s Shelter Program in San Luis Obispo County, an agency that provides services for victims of domestic violence and child abuse. This year’s show (which was in March) marked the last that Madonna will have a hand and the last time that she’ll take the stage, according to a press release. Executive Director of the shelter, Kirsten Rambo, said the charity event began in 1987, and it was a way for Madonna to work with the community to give back to the shelter. “She decided it’s time for her to step down, and we totally understand; she’s given us 30 wonderful years,” Rambo said. “We’re just grateful and appreciative for everything that she has done to bring this to life.” As Madonna steps down, she passes on the reins of the charity event to the Women’s Shelter Program, and in honor of the change, the theme of next year’s event will be “passing of the torch.” Rambo said that while Madonna will not be adding her personal touch to the production, it will still be produced with the help of Humphrey, who has been working with Madonna in past years’ productions. “The show will continue to look quite similar, and we’re so grateful to Cheri for that, as she continues to work with

us,” Rambo said. The community of volunteers, organizations, and talent is in full-force preparation for next year’s extravaganza that will now be known as The Women’s Shelter Program Musical Revue & Fashion Show. The shelter has established the Phyllis Madonna Legacy Fund to honor Madonna and her many years of work with this event. The legacy fund allows the community to pay tribute to Madonna’s decades-long efforts by donating to the Women’s Shelter Program in her name. “This is really just a way for us to continue to thank Mrs. Madonna for the vision she brought to life as well as all the work and effort she and the Madonna Inn family have put towards it,” Rambo said. She said she hopes the fund will continue to boost morale and attendance for the event. For the last few years, the event’s been bringing in about $250,000 for the Women’s Shelter Program. The main source of funds for the shelter comes from grants, but the Madonna’s charity event has become a large portion of the budget that goes directly to aiding clients. The event has given about 10 to 15 percent of the shelter’s budget. The shelter uses the funds to provide

services for its clients such as transitional housing, legal assistance, counseling, and a 24-hour crisis hotline (781-6400). Rambo said that this program is unique because it has an attorney who works pro bono to provide legal advice and representation for its clients. She said the shelter also has several units of transitional housing in San Luis Obispo and Grover Beach for its clients as they strive to rebuild their lives. Toni Detz, chair of next year’s event, said she’s been excitedly watching all the eager volunteers and community members come together for the cause. Along with the change of hands, Detz said that longtime attendees can still reserve their usual table, but tickets will now be sold online through the Eventbrite website. The event is set for March 2 and 3, 2018. For more information, contact wsptickets@gmail. com or call 316-1433.

PERFECT GETAWAY Because their Shell Beach home is small, Kevin and Susan Bratcher spread out in all directions, creating an Asian pergola in the backyard that doubles as a stage for house concerts.

DIY living How local residents make the most of their outdoor spaces BY GLEN STARKEY PHOTOS BY JAYSON MELLOM

Editor’s note: The names marked with * in this story have been changed to protect privacy. LO County living is a mixed bag. We have pretty amazing year-round weather, but housing is enormously expensive. So what do you do when your house is small, your budget is modest, and you need more living space? Take a look at the range of possibilities below.

GOT SKILLS?

Building materials aren’t cheap, but if you’re handy, you can make your budget go further by doing your own labor. Susan and Kevin Bratcher of Shell Beach bought their 1961 Craftsmanstyle home two years ago, and it was severely dated with a yard that was an overgrown mess. At a mere 1,084 square feet and with two adult children at home in a three-bedroom, one-bath, it was imperative that they maximize their outdoor area. Luckily, Kevin is an electrical contractor and skilled guitar builder, so not only has he been around construction, but he also has excellent fine carpentry skills, so he set about creating an Asianthemed outdoor living area in both the front and rear of their home. French doors open the Bratcher living room to their front yard, which contains an outdoor living room with a couch, two 10 • New Times • July 20 - July 27, 2017 • www.newtimesslo.com

chairs, a coffee table, and a stand-up heater. A cantilevered umbrella is in the plans as well. Out back is a dining area for eight, a gas fire pit, and a raised pergola with lounge seating that doubles as a stage for singer-songwriter Susan Richie, as she’s known locally, and her musician friends. There’s a bar along the side, too, and outdoor string lights offer a magical ambiance at night. It was all designed by Kevin, who didn’t write out plans—he could see it all in his head. They opted for low-maintenance landscaping and an Asian garden theme. Of course, it didn’t happen all at once. “We just had to approach it one thing at a time,” Susan said, “and be thoughtful about it.” “It’s a work in progress,” Kevin added. “You do one project, save up the money and do the next.” Not everything went exactly as planned. Kevin originally wanted to build an arbor-like shade structure over the front yard seating area, but as he built the structure, a neighbor complained to the city of Pismo Beach, and he was forced to scale back his plans. “I was trying to play off the Craftsman-style lines of the house while incorporating the Asian garden theme, trying to mesh both,” Kevin said. Kevin’s Asian-style pergola utilized reclaimed fence boards from the derelict fence that surrounded the home when they purchased it. For the new fence and the arbor built over their outdoor dining area, the Bratchers opted for specially milled redwood, which he painted so it would withstand the elements even longer. “I wanted to get something that was going to last,” Kevin said. The Bratchers’ neighbors, Karen and Mark Libby, also have a wonderfully designed outdoor living area, but they’re renting, so much of what they’ve done isn’t permanent. Their ingenuity proves that even if you’re renting, it can be worthwhile to maximize your outdoor area. The arbor Mark built has its posts in concrete-filled buckets, so if they ever move, he can disassemble it and take it with. He’s rigged it with triangular sunshades you can buy at most hardware stores. The centerpiece of the Libbys’ backyard is a gorgeous wine-themed table built by Mark himself. He recently retired, and to keep himself busy, the woodworker has opened WeevilWorks, which will manufacture similar tables custom designed for the purchaser. One new client is a winemaker who wants a “legacy” table featuring the various wine bottles his label has released. It obviously helps to have building skills! Out in Los Osos, Isaac Horton has created a tropical paradise that looks more like Indonesia than the fog-shrouded back bay. The bamboo propagator and proprietor of Isaac Horton Design has built two greenhouses, one with a hydroponic vertical garden of his own design, where he can grow his own food. He rents, but that hasn’t stopped him from making his space his own over the past six years. He’s got a very deep lot that was “desolate and covered in weeds,” and besides the greenhouses and some raised planter beds, there’s also a wood-

fired brick pizza oven he built, a dining area, and his outdoor bedroom with a koi pond and waterfall just outside, skylights, and subtle lighting. “I’m kind of an unstoppable force of creativity when it comes to my own spaces,” he said. “It’s all moveable. I build the whole thing with screws, and it’s all within the legal parameters of building codes.” His raised outdoor bedroom has floorto-ceiling windows, which would have required expensive tempered glass, but instead he used greenhouse plastic. “As soon as I started sleeping out here, I felt better, maybe something about the circadian rhythms, the water sounds, the starlight—it just made me feel better.” All the bamboo also helps create the tropical feel. “There was no bamboo back here when I moved it. I imported it from Florida because I wanted the tropical clumping kind, not the runners.” One again, an Asian garden theme dominates, and it’s incredibly peaceful and beautiful.

KEEP IT CHEAP

Sarah and Evan Goldhahn are renters in notoriously expensive SLO Town. They’re both musicians—she’s a singer better known locally by her maiden name Kleeman, and he’s a percussionist who works with PCPA among others—who lived in New York for a decade, but they grew up here and were eager to come home. “I lived in NY for 10 years so there was no outdoor space, but I grew up in this house,” Sarah explained. Her father rented the house when she was young, and now he’s the property manager for it. The backyard was already beautifully landscaped, but one corner of the yard was underutilized. For her birthday, Evan and a friend built a 10-by-12-foot deck on pier blocks, placed a store-bought gazebo kit on it, and Sarah decorated it into an inviting kasbah-like oasis. “I found the chairs at a consignment store, the futon on Craigslist, and I’ve just been collecting stuff,” Sarah said. With tapestries, paper globe lights and cute lamps, and charming knickknacks, it’s a peaceful getaway just steps out the back door. And it’s fairly inexpensive to create. They also have a seating area and fire pit, a gas grill, and outdoor dining area. And they recently added raised planter beds and have a vegetable garden going. There’s no wasted space, but it doesn’t feel cramped either.

GO WEIRD

Dr. Isapony XD*, the stage name for a member of the band The Monroe, has created an outdoor space he calls his “Time Machine”—an unusual structure including a stage, a large screen for projecting films, and a whole mess of reclaimed electronics—everything from TVs to satellite dishes. “We just recently painted it all white,” explained the 20-something eccentric and highly creative Dr. Isapony. “It’s been here for eight years now, and I just got a lead on a 20-foot satellite dish, though I’m not sure how to get it here.” The space has played host to a wide variety of arts events, and Dr. Isapony’s rental house also contains The Monroe’s practice space and recording studio. “Surprisingly, a lot of people have come through here and experienced the time machine,” he said. It’s definitely a trippy space, and it has its own Facebook page under the name Stage


TROPICAL DELIGHT Designer Isaac Horton’s Los Osos rental has been made into a lush bamboofilled forest with a raised outdoor bedroom next to a koi pond and waterfall, with the building constructed with easy-todisassemble screws.

BEAUTY ON A BUDGET Sarah and Evan Goldhahn’s SLO Town rental features a 10-by-12foot deck Evan built with a friend, a storebought gazebo, and décor by Sarah sourced from Craigslist, consignment stores, and collecting.

COUNTRY LIVING Finny and Stacy Smith’s 40-acre lavender farm near Avila Beach features a variety of outdoor living areas including this outdoor bedroom decorated with drying lavender as well as the outdoor kitchen behind it.

Pink. Where did the idea come from? “It was like a random dream, and I had a lot of this material that I was going to throw away for a friend, and—boom!—I saw the time machine. I had time traveled in my mind,” Dr. Isapony claimed, adding that he’s part of the “Time Transit Authority.” “I’m just a member of the TTA trying to do experiments,” he said.

COUNTRY LIVING

Finny and Stacy Smith own Lavendersmiths and have a 40-acre ranch near Avila Beach where they grow lavender. Purchased in 1998, the once derelict ranch has been completely transformed over the years, in part because of an unforeseen accident. In 2006, a burning fire in the fireplace ignited some newly purchased bamboo mats, which burned the house to the ground. The only part that survived was a carport where the Smiths park their work van, which they use to drive their lavender products—scrubs, soaps, sprays, and more—to area farmers markets. “Instead of rebuilding, I decided to take the insurance money and build a kind of living station, sort of a dock for mobile units,” Finny explained. “Where the house was is now an ag pond.” After the fire, the Smiths bought a small but efficiently designed Airstream trailer, which they lived in as they created their outdoor space—an outdoor kitchen, a bedroom with ceiling skylights to look at the stars, an outdoor tub and shower tucked behind a living bamboo screen, and a Jacuzzi nestled near some bushes. There’s also a floating deck with a table, chairs, and umbrella on the ag pond to cut down on evaporation, and their Airstream is now a guest room, as the Smiths have converted a full-sized shipping container into an amazing living space. There’s a second outdoor bedroom now, too, and the Smiths are building a granny unit—like the shipping unit on wheels, which makes it legal—that Finny’s mom, Mary Jane, will be moving into. When your yard is covered in lavender, you want to be outside as much as possible anyway.

GET CREATIVE

Lil’ Tiki Lagoon is the brainchild of Kim Tiki* who enlisted her husband, Kon Tiki*—yes, they’re really into the tiki lifestyle!—to build the bar and seating areas of their backyard, the centerpiece of which is a saltwater pool. Yes, the pool cost a bundle and was professionally installed, but everything else is all Kim, who Kon likes to joke can see the value in trash. “Our son and I have gotten used to stopping and digging stuff out of people’s trash for her,” Kon said. The Tikis are real Do-It-Yourselfers, having flipped something like 25 houses, built and sold 10 hotrods, and refurbished several vintage trailers, as well as some Volkswagen buses. In fact, Kim has completely tiki-fied a 1964 VW bus that she’s brought to several tiki shows. She recently had to tear some of it apart and start over because bamboo has a propensity to pick up a mold spore that turns the bamboo to powder. Kim is undaunted! “Everything’s either from the trash or thrift stores,” Kim explained, gesturing to her highly decorated backyard and tiki bar. “That’s all I do.” There are a few naughty secrets too. She slides the cloth sarong around the waist of a Hawaiian-looking carved wooden sculpture of a young man to reveal anatomically correct genitalia. Their fascination with the tiki culture began several years ago during a trip to Las Vegas to attend the Viva Las Vegas car culture and rockabilly festival, where they visited Frankie’s Tiki Room, a tiny but perpetually packed bar filled with South Seas exotica and primitivism. “We started going to all the tiki bars in California from Los Angeles to San Francisco, and suddenly the scene just blew up,” Kim said. “People were opening tiki bars all over.” Kim mentioned, for instance, Solvang’s High Roller Tiki Lounge, a wine bar, as a nearby example. “It’s definitely become a fad, but we were living it, and we decided to make our own tiki bar at home for our friends to enjoy,” Kim said. They even made a beach in the front yard, hauling in 5 tons of sand. Their 1941 SLO Town home is just 840 square feet, so again, it was important to spread their living area to outdoors. “It’s too tiny and too hot inside, so we prefer to hang out here,” Kim said, gesturing to her covered tiki bar, which she calls her “She Shed,” the opposite of a Man Cave.

Share it yourself Build your own little library to bring the sharing economy to your neighborhood BY KAREN GARCIA

alking down the driveway before her morning run, Angela Soll checks in on a little box that perches on a wooden stand. Made from extra bits from the roof and scraps from here and there, it’s a miniature replica of her home. One big door opens to a variety of books. Today’s selections include: Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Slam by Nick Hornby—to name a few. It’s a Little Free Library that Soll created for her neighborhood to enjoy, a small portal for book lovers to peek into, take a book to borrow, and leave one behind. “The good thing is it rotates. I think I originally started with five books that I put in, and then people started putting books in and taking some, too,” she said. Soll was inspired to make the library exchange after seeing an old friend while picking up her daughter from college in Portland, Ore. She found out his summer plans were to construct a little library, and that prompted her to do some research. “We took a look around the area and I feel like there was a little library literally in every neighborhood. I wanted to do that for my neighborhood back home,” Soll said. “I see a lot of Cal Poly students ride their bikes through the neighborhood and they’ll ride past the library and then

they’ll come back and look at it.” The Little Free Library website (littlefreelibrary.org) has tips and instructions on how to make a box of your own—it even provides the option of purchasing a kit or a completed library. But if you’re looking to add a personal touch, and don’t have the tools, SLO MakersSpace has you covered—all you need is the material and a SLO County Library card. Cardholders can come in Tuesday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Greg Money, shop manager of the space, said before a newcomer can use any space or tool at the facility, they have to take a free safety training class on how to use equipment and the wood shop. “If someone has a specific question about how to use a tool, every department in the MakerSpace has a guru, as we call them. For the wood shop, it’s Richard, and if you visit him during his office hours he can answer questions about the best tools to use to let’s say make the little library,” he said. “When you start something at the MakerSpace, it expands and grows, we even have a lot of businesses that flourish from projects made here,” he said. Just below the door of Soll’s library is a plaque that reads “Little Free Library,” but not all boxes have that official nameplate. It has to be registered—as the name is trademarked. The one-time registration costs $40. Being official gets the library placed on a world map, so borrowers can easily find a

book exchange in their neck of the woods. Not all libraries have to be registered: Some are just sitting around waiting to be found. CEO Clint Slaughter of SLO MakersSpace wants to take the concept a step further with a little free pantry idea. “My wife actually saw the idea of a free little pantry. It’s the same concept design as the library but with shelves and space big enough for dried foods,” Slaughter said. That project is still in the making, he said, but he hopes it’ll bring another great opportunity to the community along with the sharing of books.

A dirty job United we plant: Join the ranks of the Guerrilla Gardening Club BY HAYLEY THOMAS CAIN

GROW FORTH

e’ve all seen it. A browning, neglected strip of bushes languishing in the sun near the freeway onramp; an abandoned raised bed wilting in a public park; a patch of earth scattered with trash sitting unused near a government building. While you or I might see another depressing eyesore or the reality of our ever-expanding concrete jungle, a guerrilla gardener sees something entirely different. These horticultural upstarts, with their rolled sleeves, hand-me-down garden tools, and scrappy grit, see one thing: potential. I’m late for the Morro Bay Guerrilla

Gardening Club’s free, community potluck, but not too late for the social meeting, which is unfolding near the bluffs on a cool, bright weekday afternoon. Here, the group and its unofficial mascot—playful puppy Koa—chat, laugh, and talk plants. These welcoming folks of all ages and backgrounds—led by group founder Taylor Newton—love regaling newcomers with their triumphs and tribulations. And oh, there have been many in the past seven years. First, a quick definition of “guerrilla gardening.” Put simply, it is the act of gardening on land without legal rights to cultivate, such as abandoned sites, areas

Succulents on point Growing Grounds has plants meant to grow in SLO County BY KATRINA BORGES

hinking about getting into gardening, but want to make sure you have plants that will survive well on the Central Coast, specifically? Growing Grounds has got you covered. “Anything grown here will thrive in SLO County, and about 80 percent of it will also thrive over the grade,” said Program Manager Craig Wilson. Growing Grounds has both a farm and a shop in San Luis Obispo, where it grows and sells its plants, respectively. Wilson describes their products as “potted nursery stock exclusively”—in other words, they don’t grow vegetables. “They’re Mediterranean climate zone plants,” he said. “And then within that we focus on California natives, as well as seeds we’ve collected locally.” One might think that a plant nursery would be suffering right now due to the recent drought, but for Growing Grounds, it was all business as usual.

growth (for years, Newton grew a small nursery on his own land). They’ve taken trips down to LA’s skid row to help beautify the grounds and inspire residents, they’ve spawned chapters around the world, including Italy, and they’ve helped events like the Avila Oyster Festival work toward zerowaste success. Perhaps most importantly, this ragtag family of friends has changed lives by maintaining an inclusive group that fosters self-esteem and a sense of community for its proud misfit members. “Before we became a nonprofit, we created Guerrilla Gardening to protect ourselves from profiling. It’s amazing to think, but in 2009, it was illegal to skateboard on the streets of Morro Bay,” Newton said. “Kids kept getting pulled over for skateboarding and asked if they had drugs on them, searched. When you are a victim of profiling, you start to see yourself in that light. That’s not fair, and we didn’t want that for our youth.” Newton raised morale by starting a public gardening club, using his own urban farm to supply greenery needed to fill the city’s blank canvases. “It was important to be public about this, to become a visible service club,” Newton said. “From there, other chapters rose up. We designed the nonprofit to be replicated.”

Not only are they accustomed to adjusting the availability of certain products based on seasonal changes, but the majority of the plants are designed to be drought tolerant anyway, just because of where they’re growing. “The climate we’re in makes the drought omnipresent,” Wilson said. That being said, the drought certainly changed customer demand for certain products. Namely, according to Wilson, Growing Grounds had to increase its succulent stock by about 400 percent. “Sales [of succulents] skyrocketed,” he said. “People were ripping out their lawns. … They’re still a big sell. People have gotten used to them.” Not only will buying from Growing Grounds get you the perfect plant to grow right here, right now, but it will also help support a great cause. Growing Grounds is one of many non-profit programs from Transitions Mental Health Association, and most of the employees at the farm and the shop are there as part of their recovery process. “Probably the most rewarding part is

that I get to help create an environment where people improve their lives through their own efforts,” Wilson said. “We’re not changing their lives, we’re just creating an opportunity for them to change their own lives, and they take advantage of it.” It’s not only California that gets to experience the results of these lifechanging opportunities. Though the vast majority of Growing Grounds’ products are sold in San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara counties, Wilson said that they have shipped plants to Oregon, and even New York City. Still, despite a willingness to ship anywhere, it’s clear that the entire operation is heavily geared toward us locals. “We’re a fairly mainstream, climate appropriate nursery for this area,” Wilson said. To learn more about Growing Grounds, visit growinggroundsfarm.org or stop by the shop at 956 Chorro St. Δ

Although what the group does can be seen as a pretty good thing (who doesn’t want to see more blooms and fewer cigarette butts and Taco Bell wrappers?), resistance is part of the gig. Last year, for example, the city of Morro Bay removed elements of a miniature “public pocket park” that the group created on a city-owned lot that previously housed two dilapidated—then demolished—apartment buildings. Just like that, out went the picnic benches, turning the space (which includes cut flower beds, a mini fruit tree orchard, and irrigation system) into a monument, not a meeting place. “The words the city used were, ‘People are welcome to come to the park to appreciate its horticultural beauty, but we would like them to keep moving,’” Newton said with a wry laugh. Sarah Hart, a dedicated member since 2013, talks to new recruits and spreads the Guerrilla Gardening gospel. She tells me about “the cactus wars,” when the group filled empty tree-wells with cactuses to force the city to plant needed trees. That time, the club won out. On this day, there’s no such drama, just upkeep. Backdropped against the blue bay, the group is watering the succulents they planted some years ago. We’re at the start of the Morro Bay harbor walk, which runs from Morro Rock to the Embarcadero. The city’s famed smokestacks tower on

the horizon while Hart plants a shard of cactus in rocky soil. A massive water receptacle with the club’s logo—complete with anarchy sign— sits in the back of Newton’s truck, and the gang takes turns filling up plastic jugs. With the blessing of the city, the water was procured from Shasta Street Park and will go toward keeping this slice of Morro Bay a little greener. Barbara Aston, a new Morro Bay resident (and, I should say, mother of the Transplants’ Skinhead Rob), joins to help pick up cigarette buts. She said the group gave her strength and “saved her” after the tragic loss of her daughter and husband. Another member, Justin Porter, says he was homeless and aimless before he joined up. So far, Newton said he’s surprised more local groups haven’t sprouted up. It doesn’t take a ton of effort to organize a few outings a month, and how many clubs can both help plants—and people— flourish? “There’s still so many of us that live outside of the box, yet still want to perform service in our communities,” Newton said. “Where is an alternative, no-rules service club? There wasn’t one, so we started it.” Δ

Opinion Development, climate change, and trees National Geographic reports that “if carbon emissions remain unchecked by the end of the century deadly heat waves will threaten up to 75 percent of the world’s population.” “Every day in summer, trees release about 29 tons of oxygen into the air per square mile of forest. A person breathes in 2 pounds of oxygen a day, so that would serve 29,000 people. Every walk in the forest is like taking a shower in oxygen.” The Hidden Life of Trees With the numerous developments underway in SLO, we have need to worry about our air: 71 Palomar will take 55 out of 59 mature trees, Imel Ranch will take out 75, and Avila Ranch will take out 64. San Luis Ranch will take out 244 and, additionally, the Cannon Tree Removal Site Plan, shows the removal of 65 trees along Madonna Road. This is a total of 452 trees that will be destroyed in SLO. These trees provide habitat for special status avian species and wintering monarch butterflies. The eagles making a comeback from Marin to Santa Barbara will certainly rest here. I love trees, and most important to me is a tree’s beauty and how the groves of eucalyptus add to the experience of the Laguna Lake neighborhood. I have been enjoying these trees for 36 years. I encourage developers to keep as many of the mature blue gum eucalyptus as possible and to re-design the layout of housing in a much more creative way

with housing placed throughout the major trees on a site with a mix of social diversities as well as more affordable housing. With the water crisis in California and the USA’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, we cannot expect newly planted trees to grow to the size of the trees at Palomar or San Luis Ranch, and therefore, we should work together to keep them alive, along with the birds and wildlife. The Friends of Fiscalini Ranch Preserve has recently voted to modify their original plan to remove all eucalyptus and will instead retain those larger than 18 inches in diameter. With additional time spent on site planning, I believe that more trees and their valuable habitats can be integrated with living units to provide a richly fresh opportunity to live within nature, implementing the city’s mitigation policy “to develop and maintain a park system at a rate of 10 acres of parkland per 1,000 residents.” The best time to plant trees was 20 years ago and the second best time to plant trees is now: treeplantation.com.

relationship with faith,” June 29) is that literalist interpreters of the Bible like Michael Slack assert that God commands believers to kill gays, whereas non-literalists like reverends Jason Sisk-Provencio and Caroline Hall assert the opposite—that the Bible urges “inclusive love,” not judicial execution. The first says “you can’t be gay and be a Christian,” while the second claims “God created me gay.” Each claims to speak authoritatively for God. But we have no empirical evidence that either one does— or more critically that Bible verses do (say as opposed to the Quran, for example). Unless God contradicts herself, both may be simply deceiving themselves. Unfortunately, the rest of us can’t be sure what God endorses because God has not put a halo over either interpreter’s head nor spoken audibly from heaven lately to endorse either as her spokesperson. This is an epistemological conundrum that also underlies the controversy regarding Islam. Some “true” Muslims claim Islam is a religion of peace; other “true” ISIS Muslims commit suicide and murder. Both also claim to speak for Allah. There is no empirical evidence that anyone speaks for Allah/Yahweh/ God. Epistemology examines how one knows what one knows. People who believe that God revealed herself in either the Bible or Quran are convinced that they can know absolutely that whatever their revelation says is valid. Therefore, they totally disregard all empirical facts to the contrary. Actually, there is no evidence that Allah or the angel Gabriel dictated the Quran to the Muslim prophet (or the Bible to Hebrew prophets). Nonetheless, all Muslims—from the most liberal to the

Letters most extreme jihadist insist that Allah did. Once this unsubstantiated assertion is admitted, this “revelation” trumps all non-confirming evidence to the contrary. The same analysis applies to biblical “revelation.” Then one just arbitrarily chooses their divine spokesperson—be it Slack, Hall, the jihadist suicide bomber, or the “moderate” Muslim—because it’s really just them expressing their personal opinion, not God.

Filthy-Five Fiction

My family and I were totally disgusted by Matt Foote’s 55 Fiction story (“Graciapapi,” July 6) peppered with f-bombs. It’s bad enough that people are forced to hear those obscenities at the movies.

That is why it is important to raise awareness about the proposed oil wells and aquifer exemptions from the Arroyo Grande Oil Field. This request can be denied by the federal EPA if there is documented proof of air and water pollution. If anyone knows about this type of pollution, please come forward and detail it to the federal EPA, as soon as possible.

Do unto others …

Kudos to Jim Conroy for his letter to the editor, “A new way to see the United States,” which appeared July 15 in the Tribune. I don’t particularly self-identify as a Christian, probably because of the way that term is sometimes used to exclude and slight other religious beliefs. However, I take Jesus’ message to heart and remind myself to try to live it every day of my life. So I wish we really were a Christian nation, as so many people who vote against programs to help the disadvantaged in our culture, like to call us. Christ realized something that many people have not yet grown into: We cannot be fully happy with an awareness of others suffering around us. We are literally a human family. And it is in our own self-interest and happiness to cultivate the feeling of “love your neighbor as yourself.” Experiment with trying this perspective on for size. It’s freeing and joy producing!

Legal control of marijuana—a state issue

How are we going to control the legal distribution of marijuana in California? A big question. Right now it is totally out of control and on the streets everywhere. You buy what the guy on the corner or in the back alley gives out for his fee. You have no idea what is in it or where it comes from. There is no quality control. Stupid people do stupid things. But now that marijuana is legal in the state of California, like tobacco and alcohol, it comes under all of the state’s food laws and use regulations and taxes. And the state is responsible for administering these, not the cities. Marijuana is another addictive form of tobacco with worse health characteristics. It is a tobacco and if processed into a pill controlled by the FDA, it is a medical pill. Marijuana is treated just like tobacco and alcohol with controlled sources of production under state licenses. The medical version of marijuana must meet FDA regulations as a prescription drug and be made and

sold by a licensed purveyor. As a legal tobacco, marijuana cannot be smoked anywhere but in controlled spaces like tobacco. Mainly—nowhere! Like backwoods booze, the illegal growing and sale and use of marijuana is now subject to arrest and fines and prison time by the states. What is the city’s responsibility? Just to collect the sales taxes on the product like anything else sold across the counter. So this is how the present mayhem of illegal marijuana will be put under control. In doing so, the state has become responsible for the safety of the product for the user. Therefore, it is the FDA and the pharmaceutical company that should be responsible for any quality failures.

Help kids in need make good summer memories

Summertime generally summons images of swimming, climbing trees, summer camp, road trips, and family reunions. What happens, though, if you’re a child in foster care, living apart from your family, and unsure what the future holds? It’s difficult to enjoy the carefree days of summer when life might unexpectedly change at any moment and when your parents or other adults in your life have abused, neglected, or abandoned you. While in foster care, it is unlikely summertime will create magical childhood memories or dreams of daylong fun with friends and siblings. At CASA of San Luis Obispo County, we recruit, train, and collaborate with volunteers to help make the lives of foster youth better. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers work one-on-one with a child or sibling group in foster care to ensure their needs are met. Not only do CASA volunteers provide vital information to the court to facilitate better-informed decisions regarding the foster child’s case, they also take the child on fun outings to have new experiences, help them enjoy the season, and make new memories. This summer, we invite our neighbors LETTERS continued page 20

What makes a skeptic?

could add to the title “… and downright irritating to those on a mission to save the planet.” I respect some of my critics, in particular Andrew Christie. I know he’s sincere and has dedicated a good part of his life to protecting the environment and lives accordingly, even though I may disagree with some of his conclusions and proposed solutions. Others, less so, especially if they scold us on how we live while they, like actor Johnny Depp, live like kings. It’s reported Depp has 14 residences, including four islands in the Bahamas, a 156-foot steam yacht crewed by eight and a private jet to transport him to various engagements, like conferences to save the planet from man-made climate change. Don’t get me wrong, I like Depp as an actor; he’s extremely talented and deserves his wealth. I just don’t care for his moralizing about the lifestyles of us lowly working classes when he uses more carbon-emitting energy in a month than most working families use in a year. You can’t buy enough trees to offset his lifestyle. Nobody is perfect, not even Mr. Depp, so I dismiss his environmental sins. After all, he means well; his heart (whenever Neptune returns it) is usually in the right place. That’s the problem: too many people place intent or emotions over cold, hard facts. They appeal to the heartstrings of the public, like using images of polar

bears in distress (very cute critters, a skill at which most bears excel). Some years back the “climate-alarmist community” told us polar bears were drowning due to lack of Arctic ice and were therefore endangered. The EPA promptly listed them as “threatened,” thereby placing legal restrictions on any activity occurring on or near their habitat. I like bears a lot, except when they’re in a foul temper and inclined to eat people, as occurs from time to time. In the case of polar bears, that’s most of the time as most Arctic indigenous peoples will quickly attest. The Canadian government (no great fan of President Donald Trump) manages 14 of the 15 family groups of North American polar bears. They said the bears are doing just fine, so well, in fact, that since the 1970s when only 5,000 polar bears populated the continent, they’ve increased to more than 25,000 bears. The single greatest threat to the polar bear population is not diminishing Arctic sea ice, which this year isn’t diminishing at all, but other polar bears that eat little bears and hunting by native populations. Indigenous tribes take about 50 bears a year, but hungry, large male bears take several times that many cubs. Exaggeration of a problem gets headlines and TV ratings but makes for bad science.

Salud Carbajal’s no vote on Kate’s Law

“Help me Dad.” These were Kate Steinle’s last words as she died in her father’s arms after being shot by an illegal alien who had been deported five times, had a record of seven felony convictions, but still found refuge in the sanctuary city of San Francisco. As a result of this travesty, Kate’s Law was introduced in Congress to punish deported illegal aliens who re-enter the United States with a mandatory five years in prison. Salud Carbajal voted against Kate’s Law. In doing so, he chose to play politics rather than protect the safety of his constituents. Kate Steinle was an innocent young girl whose life was cut short because there were no consequences for her killer’s serial illegal conduct. The devastation of a life so cruelly taken will have lifelong effects on those who knew and loved her. We cannot let tragedies like this keep happening, and, as citizens, we need to hold Congress accountable for protecting us with laws that prioritize our safety.

since the 1850s when the “Little Ice Age” came to a close. We are now in a gradual warming trend with increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) being released, at about 400 ppm. During the “Roman Warm Period” 2,000 years ago, it was considerably warmer and CO2 considerably greater, at 1,000 ppm. We had another cooling trend that was interrupted by the “Medieval Warm Period”: they grew wine grapes in Scotland and the Vikings raised sheep in Greenland until the Little Ice Age hit around A.D. 1350, lasting until around 1850 and nearly freezing to death General Washington and the Continental Army at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777-78. No industrial revolution had yet occurred to release massive amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere; all of these events are well recorded in historical, geological, and archeological records, although some members of the climate change alarmist sect conveniently forget and dismiss these annoyances of established history. Unfortunately, ethical challenges to the peer review process of scientific papers supporting warnings of catastrophic climate change consequences continually appear. The “climate gate” scandal of the 1990s where climate alarmists deliberately exaggerated worst-case scenarios to motivate elected policy makers to enhance academic research budgets was revealed in a series of pilfered emails and confirmed to be true.

Withholding of source data from other scientists and preventing adequate peerreview has been the norm accompanied by refusal to acknowledge legitimate dissent within the academic atmospheric research community. Instead, persecution of dissenting scientists by politicians and those with academic reputations at stake has become commonplace, including disparagement of those daring to question any part of the science as “deniers” thereby associating dissent with deniers of the Nazis’ mass murder of Jews. The weight of real scientific inquiry is steadily undermining the hysterical alarmist claims of certain and immediate doom: The most recent study challenges NASA, NOAA, and the UK Met Office global average surface temperature (GAST) datasets “as being the result of adjustments made to the datasets after temperatures were recorded, calling into question how much global warming is real and how much assumed.” Refusing to discuss or accept rigorous challenge to scientific hypothesis, theory, or data is not science but indoctrination. The policies advocated by “climate alarmists” will be draconian for billions; nothing is settled, and the public deserves a critical discussion of climate issues, led by an adversarial press, not the “lapdog poodles” they’ve become.

Opinion

The Shredder

Out for justice J ustice and the law should be total bros, always hanging together and protecting and treating people right, but sometimes they act like they don’t even know each other! Take, for example, the plight of Megan Souza and Eric Powers, co-owners of Megan’s Organic Market, a medical marijuana cultivation and mobile delivery service, who are about to get hosed by SLO County, which is threatening to destroy medicine that serves more than 1,000 legal patients. Is it because neighbors have complained about their half-acre grow on the 35-acre rural Los Osos parcel they lease? I mean, after all, the SLO County Counsel’s Office claims in its lawsuit that “cannabis cultivation affects the entire community by diverting limited water resources, increasing the potential for criminal activity, using excessive energy, and producing strong offensive odors.” Maybe someone complained about the smell, crime, energy, or water use? Well, nope! Instead, the county is threatening Souza and Powers by saying their grow is “non-compliant” because—get this—a structure on the property they lease from owner Susan Veley was allegedly built without permits. The structure was already there when Souza and Powers began leasing the property in early 2016. Tough beans, said SLO County Code Enforcement Supervisor Art Trinidade, who doesn’t seem to care

that Souza and Powers had nothing to do with the 2012 code violation. Because the property has an outstanding code violation, their otherwise legal grow operation that’s protected under Proposition 215 is subject to “abatement,” meaning destruction. What they hell are they supposed to do, Art? Should they knock down buildings they don’t own? According to Powers, he’s been trying to work it out with the county and even met with planning staff, who ultimately said Powers’ grow permit denial would stand. Where’s the justice in this? Why destroy the livelihood of two small business owners because they leased a piece of property with out-ofcode buildings, unbeknownst to them? Shouldn’t you be going after the legal owner of the property? Of course the county should, but instead it’s using the letter of the law to perpetuate an injustice, because marijuana bad! Bad, marijuana! At some point the county and various local municipalities are going to need to face the fact that marijuana is legal and a whole hell of a lot safer than alcohol, tobacco, and double cheeseburgers. It’s like the county’s discriminating against pot growers or something! Are you going to find some reason to sue each of the more than 400 growers who registered with the county? Sounds expensive. On another note, “discrimination” has

Confidence Building

gotten a bad rap, mainly because when most people think of the word, they think of its secondary definition, to “make an unjust or prejudicial distinction,” forgetting its primary definition, to “recognize a distinction or to differentiate.” Like “he’s got discriminating taste when it comes to fine wines.” This faulty interpretation of “discrimination” is the problem behind Measure B-17, which will be hitting SLO city voters’ mailboxes on July 24. Voting “yes” on the mail-in-only special election will purportedly cancel the controversial Rental Housing Inspection Program, which was designed to assure renters were living in legal and up-to-code dwellings, but which opponents argued was an invasion of privacy and would lead to even more expensive rents. The thing is the SLO City Council already voted 5-0 to rescind the inspection program, and if B-17 passes, it will forbid any kind of “discrimination” in city housing policies, including discriminating in favor of low-income renters, the elderly, or the disabled—the very people most in need of affordable housing help. A “no” vote will allow the city to continue to implement programs that help people in need. In case you’ve forgotten, this little peccadillo—aka the $150,000 special election and stupid potential new ordinance—is brought to you by former SLO Vice Mayor Dan Carpenter and local attorneys Stew Jenkins and

FINSTALLATION REE With any complete system purchase ($50 Value)

Dan Knight, who gathered signatures on a petition to end the Rental Housing Inspection Program and replace it with the Non-Discrimination in Housing Ordinance (Measure B-17), which asserts that “age, income, disability, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual identity, or inability or ability to own a home” cannot be used to discriminate. When it comes time to mail in your ballot, don’t be fooled by the language. Organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, People’s Self-Help Housing, and the Housing Authority of SLO County may be denied funding, making it impossible for them to complete their affordable housing mission. If passed, B-17 may also rescind laws that protect low-income residents of mobile home parks. It will also make it legal to point and laugh at the homeless (OK, I made that last part up, but it’s cut from the same cloth). Carpenter, Jenkins, and Knight may have thought they were doing the right thing when they circulated their petition, but it’s resulted in a dumb, poorly written ordinance that will hurt the already vulnerable lowincome population of SLO Town. If you’re an insufferable and thoughtless prick who doesn’t care about the poor, vote “yes” on Measure B-17. Δ The Shredder has discriminating taste when it comes to cannabis.

Another piece, Gretchen by artist Helen Hunt Reid, has ties with the museum’s roots as well. This painting shows a woman in green with her hair in a sleek, low bun, thoughtfully staring at something. With a red art deco pattern behind her, Gretchen could even be in another art museum somewhere. The artist behind the piece lived on the Central Coast toward the end of her life in 1969. Though it’s unknown exactly who Gretchen is, Saliklis said the piece is known as the unofficial mascot of the collection, a sort of representation of the female art supporters behind the art association that later turned into a museum. “She’s almost a composite of all the women who made the museum happen,” Saliklis said. Of course, the collection isn’t lacking in contemporary work either. The 2000 piece Red Cow (a striking painting of a dark brown cow against an all-red background) was originally sold to a private buyer and then found its way back to artist Nancy Kolliner, who then donated it to the museum. While the museum’s time in its current building may be limited, Saliklis said some of the artwork will likely move to an empty storefront downtown to create a sort of pop-up museum once construction begins. But for now, locals and tourists alike can still catch a glimpse of the permanent collection for a while longer. “It’s an eclectic mix of things,” Saliklis said. “So there’s always something for everyone.” Δ

It’s nice to bring it out so they can see part of it.” While the museum is always on the lookout for new pieces, not every item that’s offered up is accepted. The idea is to look for high quality art that’s by an artist from the area, by someone who passed through, or somehow inspired by the Central Coast. With the museum planning to raise a total of $15 million for a new building they hope to break ground for in 2019, Saliklis said this could be the last time the collection is displayed in the current building. The collection was started by Arne Nybak, who served as the volunteer curator for 30 years up until 1999. Nybak would ask artists who displayed their work at the museum to donate a piece to the collection. “That was great foresight on his part,” Saliklis said.

Who can it be now? Former Men at Work frontman Colin Hay plays the Fremont

HE COMES FROM A LAND DOWN UNDER Former Men at Work frontman Colin Hay plays July 23 at the Fremont Theater in support of his new album Fierce Mercy.

G

rab your Vegemite sandwich and get ready to head to a land down under when former Men at Work frontman Colin Hay plays the Fremont Theater this Sunday, July 23 (9 p.m.; all ages; $39.50 presale at ticketfly.com or $42 at the door). Men at Work is perhaps Australia’s biggest rock act, which in 1981—thanks to MTV and the video for “Down Under”—quickly found global fame and fans. Songs like “Who Can it Be Now?” and “It’s a Mistake” kept the band in the limelight throughout the New Wave era. The band broke up and reformed a few times over the years, but these days Hay is doing his own thing, most recently on the album Fierce Mercy, his 13th solo release, which came out earlier this year and explores topics such as “love and

loss, mortality, and even the odd UFO sighting,” according to press materials. On “A Thousand Million Reasons,” Hay delivers a beautiful, tender love ballad in that familiar voice: “And you give me a thousand millions reasons why we’re not alone, and you give me a thousand million seasons where life goes on and on and on.” “Come Tumblin’ Down” has a country rocker feeling while “Secret Love” offers another soaring ballad—the story of a young boy’s first love. These are narrative cinematic songs with a sense of urgency. “When you’re in your 20s, you think you’ve got all the time in the world,” Hay explained. “You get older, and you go through a quickening. Everything seems to get faster.” Expect selections from his solo work as well as a few Men at Work hits during

this show brought to you by Otter Productions Inc.

American metal

Industrial band Ministry featuring famed frontman Al Jourgensen plays the Fremont Theater this Saturday, July 22, during a Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents show (8 p.m.; all ages; $33 presale at ticketfly.com or $35 at the door). Jourgensen is considered the godfather of industrial music, but if you go all way back to when Ministry formed in 1981, you’ll recall they started as a New Wave synth pop act, transforming into the industrial powerhouse in the mid-’80s and gaining mainstream traction in the early ’90s with their fifth album Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs and the Lollapalooza Festival. Jourgensen is one of the most recognizable figures in rock, with his array of facial piercings, dreadlocks, and stovepipe hat. Born Alejandro Ramirez Casa in Havana, Cuba, he and his mother moved to Chicago when he was young and she married a Norwegian stock car mechanic and driver named Jourgensen. He was attracted to music from a young age and did stints as a club DJ in college, eventually joining Frankie Nardiello (aka Groovie Mann) and Harry Rushakoff to form the short lived Special Affect. Nardiello went on to form My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, and Rushakoff started Concrete Blonde. After his early forays into synth pop, of which Jourgensen subsequently said, “That shit was garbage and an abomination; it should have never had the Ministry moniker,” he dug deeply into what would become the industrial genre. The rest, as they say, is history. A few highlights that added to Jourgensen’s bad boy reputation include the time he defended his daughter from the advances of R&B star R. Kelly by smashing a suitcase against his head, and when filmmaker Stanley Kubrick made a scene for Ministry in his film A.I: Artificial Intelligence. The man and his band are legend! Other Numbskull and Good Medicine Presents shows this week include Led Zeppelin tribute act Led Zepagain on Saturday, July 22, at The Siren (7 p.m.; 21-and-older; $17.50 presale at

ticketfly.com or $20 at the door); bluegrass, gospel, pre-war blues and hot swing combo Dustbowl Revival on Saturday, July 22, at Presqu’ile Winery (doors at 5 p.m.; all ages; $18 presale at ticketfly.com or $20 at the door); and country stars The Casey Donahew Band on Sunday, July 23, at Tooth & Nail Winery (6 p.m.; 21-and-older; $25 presale at ticketfly.com or $28 at the door).

and 8:30 p.m.; all ages; free). On Sunday, July 23, future (aspiring) Michigan senator Kid Rock plays the Chumash Grandstand Arena (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $56 to $101). The multiplatinum award-winning American rock icon who mixes hip-hop, heavy metal, and country into his own style, is famous for hits such as “Bawitdaba” and “Cowboy.” Even though he’s a right-wing nutter eclipsed in his nuttiness only by Ted Nugent, I can’t help but love Kid Rock’s music. It’s a guilty pleasure! Tex-Mex act Little Joe Y La Familia plays the Fort Frontier Stage (6:30 and 8:30 p.m.; all ages; free). On Monday, July 24, singersongwriter John Mayer takes the Chumash Grandstand Arena stage (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $51 to $131) with his full band, solo acoustic, and trio sets in support of his forthcoming full-length album, The Search for Everything. The Night Game will open the show. Allfemale group Runaway Jane plays the Fort Frontier Stage (6:30 and 8:30 p.m.; all ages; free). If you like The Dixie Chicks, you’ll dig these ladies’ threepart harmonies. On Tuesday, July 25, get ready for some great singer-songwriter pop music by Hunter Hayes & The Band Perry on the Chumash Grandstand Area (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $31 to $71). Multiinstrumentalist Hayes is best known for his three No. 1 hits: “Wanted,” “I Want Crazy,” and “Somebody’s Heartbreak.” The Band Perry is best known for their No. 1 single “If I Die Young.” Former Monkees drummer Mickey Dolenz plays the Fort Frontier Stage (6:30 and 8:30 p.m.; all ages; free). Expect hits like “Daydream Believer” and “I’m A Believer.” Wednesday, July 26, country artist Keith Urban plays the Chumash Grandstand Arena (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $46 to $101). He recently celebrated his 22nd No. 1 song, “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Lauren Alaina will open the show. Famed R&B band WAR plays the Fort Frontier Stage (6:30 and 8:30 p.m.; all ages; free), known for hits such as “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Low Rider” and “The Cisco Kid.” And finally this week, on Thursday, July 27, Garth Brooks with Trisha Yearwood play the Chumash Grandstand Stage for two shows, which I believe are sold out (7:30 and 10:30 p.m.; all ages; $79.98) Brooks recently won Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards for a fifth time, a first for any artist. Beatles tribute act The Fab Four plays the Fort Frontier Stage (6:30 and 8:30 p.m.; all ages; free).

Eden Memorial Grief Support The death of a beloved pet is one of life’s toughest challenges. Our pets, who love us unconditionally, are in many ways eternal children. They depend on us for food, love, and shelter. So how do we deal with our grief when they are no longer with us?

It’s important to grieve at your own pace and to surround yourself with people who understand and who can help.

Most importantly, grief is individual. One person may talk/ share stories about their pet; while another person may feel like pulling the covers over their head and crying. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, nor is there a time frame. As General Manager of Eden Memorial Pet Care, I have clients who grieve for weeks, sometimes months.

Here are the general steps of grief: Shock, Denial, Disbelief, Anger, Spiritual, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance/Recovery

There are resources within SLO County – Pet Support Groups with local SLO Hospice and professional grief counselors. Seek the help and support you need.

Visit Eden Memorial’s “Resources” page for local grief support help & information. www.edenmemorialpetcare.com/resources.htm By: Christine Johnson, Eden Memorial Pet Care

Love Sick D

irector Michael Showalter (Hello, My Name is Doris) directs this semi-autographical screenplay by Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani about a Pakistani stand-up comic named Kumail (Nanjiani) who falls for a white woman named Emily (Zoe Kazan) who heckles him during a performance. Their budding relationship is strained when Emily discovers Kumail has a stash of photos of Pakistani women his parents have been trying to set him up with in an arranged marriage, so she breaks things off. Later, she’s taken to the hospital and put into an induced coma due to an infection, and Kumail realizes he made a mistake letting her go, but now it may be too late. (120 min.)

The film also looks at the behind-the-scenes world of stand-up comedy, and if you’ve seen the new Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here about the comedy scene in ’70s LA, you’ll have an idea about what goes on. Deftly balancing comedy and drama, The Big Sick threads a direct path between tears and laughter. It gave me the biggest laugh I’ve had in a film in a long time, and I was stifling back sobs at the moving story. I loved it! Anna Balance is key between laughout-loud and tear-inducing moments Glen Ah love! It’s never easy as this in The Big Sick. Writers Gordon and big-hearted charmer proves. But this is Nanjiani pull it off with ease. No doubt more than a based-on-real-life love story; living through the ordeal was great fuel it’s also an insightful treatise on what it for the script, and Nanjiani starring as means to be Muslim—or even perceived himself leads to an earnest and sweet as Muslim—in America, as well as an performance.

Of course, other. Kumail’s life is compartmentalized: Kumail doesn’t see it that way. He doesn’t The comic enjoys his American-style practice Islam or even know if he believes bachelorhood, and the dutiful son in Allah at all. He swears, drinks, and pretends to aspire to law and is a devout Muslim intent on the life his parents want for him. When told to pray before dessert, Kumail heads to the basement, lays down a rug, sets a timer for five minutes, and plays video games on his phone until his time is up. It’s a balancing act, right? Keep the parents happy, you get to live your fun, albeit secret, life as you want to. Time is running short though. The constant presence of young women “just dropping by” during his family dinners makes that clear. Emily is more of an open book with her family, wanting to introduce PARENTAL PROBLEMS Emily’s parents, Beth her parents to Kumail when (Holly Hunter) and Terry (Ray Romano), aren’t they come to visit, and telling sure about Kumail, but as he continues to visit the her mom all of his dirty secrets hospital during Emily’s illness, they warm to him.

once the romance goes awry, which does not endear Beth (Holly Hunter) to him at all when they meet in the hospital after Emily’s coma is induced. Glen Of all the performances, Holly Hunter’s stands out. In fact, she’s so amazingly good that she reminds you that Nanjiani and Ray Romano, as Emily’s dad Terry, are acting. There’s something very natural about her portrayal, and her character arc—how she warms to Kumail—gives the film more depth than it would have otherwise. Even though Romano isn’t a great actor, he’s well cast here, with his hangdog expression and deadpan delivery. Terry and Beth have marriage troubles of their own, but one of the things the story drives home is that love is a choice and that families depend on one another. Beth and Terry grow closer through Emily’s illness. I don’t know how accurate the story is, but in the closing credits, we get to see photos of Nanjiani’s real-life parents. It was a reminder of how lucky I am to have a close, supportive family. Last week I saw and reviewed Maudie, another great love story. The beauty of film is there are so many ways to portray love, which is both the simplest and most complex thing humans express. When the screening ended at The Palm, the audience burst into applause, and this film is worthy. What a crowd pleaser! Anna It’s good enough that when I was

To distract from the noise, he’s constantly got music playing through ear buds, choosing songs that are perfect for his task, whether that’s driving a getaway car from a heist or bopping through a neighborhood to grab coffee for the criminals Doc has gathered for the job. The film is mostly filled with amazing car chases, a foot chase just as exciting as the car chases, the aforementioned trip to gather coffee that plays like a music video, and a blisteringly good soundtrack. It’s a pretty irresistible combination, though I have to say the beginning of the film is more fun than the end. Yes, it’s lightweight, but for some summer fun, I highly recommend it!

telling a friend about the film and she said she wanted to see it, I enthusiastically replied, “I’ll go with you!” Seeing the same film twice within a few days and without the allure of the reclining chairs that Downtown Centre has is a testament to how much I love this film. It’s got some great laughs that I don’t want to spoil for future audiences, but I was in serious stitches several times. Two minutes later, I’d be a crying mess just trying to keep my sniffling as quiet as possible. I’m so glad Jim Dee nabbed this film; The Palm is a great intimate venue for The Big Sick. Get there early for tickets though; I have a feeling once word gets out how great it is, The Palm’s limited seating will sell out quickly. As you said, Hunter’s performance is knockout good, and Romano’s play at subtlety worked. When Emily is brought out of the coma, she’s starting out at square one, while all of the people around her have gone through an experience that she was, quite literally, asleep for. While Kumail may have won Beth and Terry over, Emily is still sad and hurt for the same reasons she was before she got sick. Both change and forgiveness take time, and small steps toward them lead to big things. I’m in love with their love, and I bet you will be too once the credits roll.

THE HOUSE What’s it rated? R What’s it worth? Rental Where’s it showing? Stadium 10 Written and directed by Andrew Jay Cohen along with co-writer Brendan O’Brien (both worked together on Neighbors, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) comes the slapstick comedy The House, starring Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell. Is this the funniest movie these two comedy heavy weights have ever starred in? Nope. That being said, is this movie a better use of your time than the other dumb summer blockbusters? Yup! Here’s the breakdown: Suburban parents Kate (Poehler) and Scott (Ferrell) are jazzed when their daughter Alex (Ryan Simpkins)

At the Movies wins a scholarship from the town to attend the ultra-fancy and expensive Bucknell University. But at the last minute, the town, headed by City Councilman Bob (Nick Kroll) reneges on the promise, opting to build a pool instead. The couple is also dealing with their friend Frank’s (Jason Mantzoukas) life crisis as he spirals after his wife leaves him because of his gambling and porn addictions. Naturally, Kate and Scott decide to go into business with Frank to run an illegal underground casino in his house to pay for Alex’s college tuition. Hijinks ensue as the neighbors, bored with dreary suburban life start to stop by to gamble away their money, get crazy drunk, and, you know, engage in some MMA style throw-downs. I mean this movie is from the guys who brought you Neighbors. The logic of the real world doesn’t apply here and they lean heavy on the physical comedy. Oh, and there’s like zero consequences to anyone’s crazy’s antics in the long term, but that’s par for the course with this kind of zany comedy. The predictable hiccups arise, but if you’ve seen one crazy comedy then you can likely guess how things pan out for Kate, Scott, and Alex. Poehler and Ferrell are an interesting combo, but she’s realistic as a parent/normal human in a way that her co-star isn’t so it kind of works out. Mantzoukas—as a man on the edge with nothing left to lose as he tries to win back his wife and keep the bank from foreclosing on the house—is a wonderfully complex character in a town filled with flatter personalities. Cal State Long Beach (go Beach!) alumni like myself will enjoy spotting the campus in the film, in spite of the one Bucknell banner someone from set design bothered to throw up. If you’re looking for a light diversion best enjoyed with a cocktail (or some kind of booze) in hand, then this is it. Just wait till it hits Red Box. (88 min.) —Ryah Cooley

MAUDIE

What’s it rated? PG-13 What’s it worth? Full Price Where’s it showing? The Palm Aisling Walsh (Joyriders, Song for Raggy Boy, The Daisy Chain) directs this screenplay by Sherry White (The Breadmaker, Down to the Dirt, Crackie) about arthritic Nova Scotia painter Maud Dowley (Sally Hawkins), who after having her family home sold out from under her by her brother takes up housekeeping work for Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke). Eventually the two find romance as Maudie hones her naïve but charming folk painting style, eventually becoming a community icon. First and foremost, this is a love story, albeit a very unconventional one. Because of Maudie’s affliction, her family— brother Charles (Zachary Bennett) and her aunt Ida (Gabrielle Rose)—believes she’s incapable of taking care of herself, but Maudie has an indomitable spirit, and rather than live under her aunt’s thumb, she answers an ad for a housekeeper. Everett is a 40-year-old bachelor, taciturn, illiterate, and proud. He’s a hard worker who sells fish door-to-door, cuts and sells wood, removes trash, and works in the orphanage where he was raised. He’s pretty hard to like at first, and though he reluctantly hires Maudie, he treats her poorly. “It’s me, these dogs, those chickens, and then you,” he informs her of the pecking order. They live in a one-room shack, sharing a bed in a sleeping loft. As a form of escape and a way of celebrating the beauty she sees around her, she paints on any surface she can find, including old card stock, painting little postcard scenes that she sells for a few pennies. These are beautifully rendered characters by screenwriter Sherry White, and while autobiographical, from what I’ve read about Maud and Everett, she

Dark, irreverent comedy ensues. I zipped through nine of the first 17 episodes in one sitting and found the show to be a riot of physical comedy, ribald humor, and groan-inducing fishout-of-water situations. Mickey is a hot mess, surpassed in her hot messiness only by her loser pseudo-boyfriend Jimmy (Scott MacArthur). The eldest child Sabrina takes an immediate dislike to Mickey, FRIENDS IN NEED setting up a battle of wills.

Mickey is wholly unsuited to her

new responsibilities. I especially like the chemistry between Mickey and Alba. Unpretentious Mickey thinks the way Alba is treated as a second-class member of the family has been terrible and wants her to have equality … as long as she keeps doing all the work. Jimenez as Alba is hilarious, with amazing comic timing and a lot of the show’s best deadpan lines. Olson, who’s also the show’s co-executive producer, is terrific as Mickey, striking just the right note between selfish and caring—she fluctuates between doing what she wants and doing what she thinks is right for the kids. With 13 writers over 17 episodes, you can imagine the series is at times uneven, but it’s still a lot of fun, and the characters are well defined. It’s gotten mixed reviews from the critics, so it clearly won’t appeal to all viewers, but I’ve laughed out loud in every episode I’ve seen so far. If you have sensitive sensibilities or are easily offended, this isn’t the series for you, but if you’re a fan of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, or The Office, this ought to be right up your naughty little alley.

may have taken some liberties. Everett is written as being very dismissive of Maud’s work, when in fact, in real life he encouraged her to paint. If you’re looking for historical accuracy, this probably isn’t quite right, but as a story of two people coming to realize they love and need each other, it’s exceedingly beautiful. Tissues recommended! The acting is uniformly excellent, with Hawkins twisting her body and face into a knotted mess. She does a very fine job of embodying Maudie, depicting her strong spirit and resilience. Hawke, too, is excellent, playing Everett as a stiff and angry brute who softens to Maud. His Everett longs to be close to someone, but as an orphan and bachelor, he has no experience. Vacationing New Yorker Sandra (Kari Matchett) takes an interest in Maudie’s work, and helps build her confidence, and the entire story takes place over several decades, from the late ’30s to 1970 when Maud dies. The small fishing village becomes a character as well, and its seasonal changes move from a fly-infested summer to an unforgiving winter. The people who live there are tough and sometimes gossipy and cruel, and it all feels like real life—the highest compliment I can pay a film. (115 min.) —Glen Starkey

Meanwhile Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns to his studies after Stark tells him he’s not ready to be an Avenger, but that doesn’t stop Peter from pursuing his crime fighting endeavors. This sixth installment in the Spider-Man franchise is directed by Jon Watts (Clown, Cop Car) with a screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Horrible Bosses, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs). They’ve hit the sweet spot in this Spider-Man reboot, mixing great action sequences with a funny high school coming-of-age story that humanizes Peter Parker, delivers a multilayered villain (Keaton), and keeps the laughs coming mostly at Peter’s expense. Peter and his bestie Ned (Jacob Batalon) are the nerdiest nerds in a tech-centric magnet school filled with nerds.

who’s been tasked with keeping Peter safe from real harm. Happy is clearly annoyed by Peter’s earnestness, so there’s some fun chemistry in the way Peter and Happy grate on one another. The real excitement begins when Peter catches wind of a criminal gang led by Vulture, who is selling weapons made of alien technology to street criminals. Stark wants to leave Vulture and his henchmen for the FBI, but Peter can’t take no for an answer, which sets-up the estrangement between Stark and him, as well as the Staten Island ferry set-piece seen in the film’s trailer. It’s a very engaging story with a wholly likeable protagonist. In contrast to the charm of Peter and Ned is Adrian Toomes, who we initially sympathize with since his salvage company is destroyed when Stark and the feds team up to create the D.O.D.C., which strips the government cleanup contract out from under Toomes’ company, putting his and all his employees’ livelihoods at risk. He decides since the government changed the rules on him, the rules no longer apply. He and his men begin stealing alien technology, creating weapons out of it, and selling it on the black market. Keaton is fantastic, and we see Toomes change from indignant victim to ruthless killer, yet he still retains humanity because his goal is to provide for his family. As villains go, Vulture is a complex and interesting one, and Keaton plays him with irreverent menace—he’s crossed the line and there’s no going back. As comic book hero films go, this is a great one! (133 min.) —Glen Starkey

Arts MOVIES from page 42 military faction called Alpha-Omega led by a ruthless commander known as the Colonel (Woody Harrelson). The survival of each species is at stake. Computer generated images and “performance capture” actor Andy Serkis are once again the stars of the show in what is essentially an anti-war movie in the vein of Platoon or Apocalypse Now. The technology on display is pretty amazing, with Caesar and the other ape characters delivering the sort of subtle facial expressions and complex emotions normally requiring actual human beings rather than computer generated animated constructs. It’s not that I ever forgot I was looking at CGI, it’s just that it’s done so well I found myself fascinated by its quality. Caesar wants nothing more than to live peacefully away from the remaining humans, who we discover are losing their ability to speak due to the simian virus. Harrelson’s Colonel takes a page out of Brando’s performance as Kurtz from Apocalypse Now—a man gone crazy by war who believes he’s the only one with the mental clarity to see the truth, in his case, the belief than humans who can’t speak are no longer human and must be exterminated before they can spread their affliction. In short, humans are losing their humanity simultaneously as apes are gaining theirs. Naturally we’re rooting for Caesar in the face of the Colonel’s merciless worldview, and the film gets its heart and soul from the idea that he can behave more humanely than the humans he encounters. Yet, even Caesar struggles to overcome his baser instincts. He’s haunted by nightmares of Koba, a gorilla from Dawn of the Planets of the Apes that succumbed to his dark side. Likewise, Caesar finds himself consumed by hatred after so many of his clan—including family members—are murdered by the Colonel. Much of the film is about his own internal struggle to do the right thing. It’s a very human and moral story, an allegory about a world gone mad, consumed with hatred, a world at war

Get Out!

The Big Apple

ROOFTOP SUNSET Looking out from the 18th floor of a hotel in China Town, the Empire State Building towers over the cityscape. Watching the sunset with a full view of Manhatten was so surreal and cool.

Forty-eight hours of rooftops, sightseeing, walking and comedy in New York City

E

verything feels backwards. I’m atop an 18-story building in New York City with a whiskey in my right hand, perplexedly watching the sun set over New Jersey, as the easterly Atlantic Ocean fades into darkness. It’s a remarkable sight, but one I’m having trouble getting my head around. As a coastal Californian, I’m so accustomed to seeing the sun set over the ocean that its inverse is really messing with me. In earth’s history, the Atlantic Ocean has never experienced a sunset? Only sunrises? Weird. That bout of disorientation didn’t stand alone in my whirlwind 48-hour trip to New York City on July 10 and 11. There was the 5:30 p.m. rush-hour stampede at Penn Station; the time I mistakenly jumped into a Lyft car that already had a passenger in it; and the two hours of stand-up comedy that made me laugh so hard I thought I was losing my mind. But chaos is an essential ingredient of the Big Apple experience, and I loved every moment of it. My girlfriend, Clare, and I were lucky enough to be able to stay in the heart of Greenwich Village, at her cousin’s apartment. It was the ideal location to experience and explore the city, after spending three very quiet days on the north shore of Long Island visiting Clare’s extended family. It was also a pretty incredible time to

@getoutslo

be in New York City. While our subway train essentially passed under Trump Tower en route to Central Park, everyday New Yorkers were opening the New York Times to read the breaking news: Don Trump Jr. held a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton. You could definitely feel the weight and shock of the news in the air, as well as a sense of pride that the story was exclusively the local Times’ doing. It wasn’t my first time in New York City, so I knew that two days wouldn’t be close to enough to see all the top destinations. We decided to pick just a few tourist-y things to do, and to play everything else by ear. We toured the sprawling Metropolitan Museum of Art, strolled through Central Park, and walked the High Line. Those were great,

but my favorite sequence of the trip was during our one night in the city. We randomly chose a rooftop bar to check out in China Town, where we saw the (backwards) sunset. But there was more to look at than the sky and cityscape. We also watched two men doing hardcore samurai sword training on a lower rooftop! Afterward, we got some delicious noodles in China Town, and while we were eating, we reserved 11:30 p.m. tickets for the stand-up comedy show at the Comedy Cellar in The Village. We walked all the way there, and then down the steps into the Cellar, made famous by comedian Louis C.K. in his TV show Louie. As we were getting settled in, the first comic of the night came out: Judd Apatow, producer of Bridesmaids, Forty-Year-Old Virgin, and Knocked Up. We were about 15 feet from him. Apatow

was hilarious, as were the ensuing six comedians that performed until 2 a.m.— all incredibly engaging, topical, and intelligent and had the room in stiches. Seeing New York City in a New York minute ain’t a bad way to do it! Δ Staff Writer Peter Johnson is enjoying Pacific Ocean sunsets at pjohnson@ newtimesslo.com.

Food BY HAYLEY THOMAS CAIN

Meet your veggie butcher It’s all about flavor-melding (meaty) world fusion fun

C

hef Becky Windels does not stop at “good.” In her life and in her dishes, she pushes through to something better than good, something that blows her own mind. Her fans call it “happy food,” and I understand why. I mean, how good can one vegan black bean and kale enchilada topped with cashew crema truly be? The answer is explosively delicious. I am talking about lick-yourplate amazing. Try the ancho chocolate turkey mole tacos topped with hibiscus red onion, sesame, and lime. Drizzle on a little house-made habanero hot sauce, and you will find this meaty delicacy to be just as thrilling as the vegan option. Same goes for the fluffy smoked trout beignet topped with bright pickle, dill, and cherry bomb pepper mayo. From the house salad—with pops of sweet dried corn, radish, bourbon pumpkin seeds, and creamy avocado—to the down-home crunch of the fried chicken taco topped with jalapeño poppy slaw and gold pea shoots—The Vegetable Butcher offers up a flavor-melding Latin American and worldinspired menu that is not limited by its plant-based bias. In fact, it’s the very opposite. These leafy seasonal wonders elevate the show and add oodles of personality. The chef thinks of her dishes from the ground up. She’s not concerned with tofu or tempeh. “I don’t tweak anything to make it vegetarian, and I don’t do protein substitutions,” she said. “A customer might say they hate kale or butternut squash, but then I get them to eat the whole thing without feeling like they missed any meat at all.” Yes, you can totally eat 100 percent vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free at The Vegetable Butcher, but you don’t have to, either. This is not your hippie grandma’s greasy spoon. Here, generous portions of top notch, sustainably farmed meat (rich short ribs, succulent chicken, pineapplebraised pork) are elevated and celebrated alongside the quinoa, non-GMO corn, black rice, and roasted edamame. Becky and her husband of 23 years, John (who is just as ambitious), aimed to create an upscale yet casual restaurant with fun, approachable food that nourishes while it dazzles. This impression begins the moment you walk through the door, passing the life-size Day of the Deadinspired skeleton as you go. The couple said the vast 3,500-squarefoot restaurant “got a lot smaller” as they populated the space with tables, rustic burlap fabric, a bar, and a dining space

Eat your veg!

The Vegetable Butcher is located at 712 Marsh St. and open for lunch and dinner Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. A brunch menu and outdoor take-away window is forthcoming, so keep an eye out.

that wraps all along the perimeter (this view gets diners as close to the action as they can get without physically entering the kitchen). You can stop in for a quick taco-andbeans lunch, a full date night dinner of tamales, or a shared plate of Korean fried heirloom cauliflower and a drink after work. The worldly wine list is manageable with no fat, just the refreshing whites, dry sparkling wines, and medium intensity reds you’d expect to combat all that spice (Italian, Spanish, and French included). Plus, there’s plenty of craft beer too, including offerings from Atascadero’s Tent City and Paso’s Silva brewing companies. The restaurant was crafted with the locals’ wants in mind. In fact, John and Becky even asked people on the street what they felt downtown SLO needed. “People didn’t want another burger joint,” Becky said. As transplants from Arizona, the couple brings decades of restaurant-building experience to downtown. The year was 1991 when the lovebirds first met. Both were in their 20s, both were waiting tables in Phoenix. They soon married and started a catering business with another partner. “It all started right there, in 1995. The concept was from-scratch custom fresh farmers’ market menus, before it was cool,” Becky said. From a fraternity pig roast to an Indian wedding, the budding chef did it all. She had been gifted a love of whole ingredient cooking from her upbringing: Her mom ground her own wheat and made her own bread. “I’ve always been drawn to fresh cuisine and the ability to make something healthy that tastes great,” Becky said. “I remember making a chickpea pita way back when, and hearing someone say, ‘This is happy food.’ That stuck with me.” The catering company took off thanks to the couples’ tenacity and passion. In fact, the business grew to bring in well over a million dollars in annual revenue, blossoming into two full scale restaurants in Scottsdale (The Herb Box), as well as a market, cheese shop, and bakery. “At our 20 year anniversary, I sold my shares to my business partner; I was ready for a new challenge and something I could be more intimate with,” Becky said. “I wanted to get back to what had attracted me to cooking to begin with.” The Central Coast’s abundant flavors and FLAVOR continued page 48

H AYLEY’S P ICKS Graze and sip Beef shouldn’t be a four-letter word. However, the way it’s raised in the U.S. is often questionable for our health and the planet’s. On the Central Coast, ranchers are doing things a bit differently. Learn how these well-marbled meats make their way from calf to plate from these local cattlefolks themselves—many of whom make their own wine, too. Graze, sip, and get educated at the Central Coast Beef and Wine Festival coming up this Aug. 26 (tickets on sale now at farmsteaded.com) where herd and vineyard mingle. Presented at Halter Ranch Vineyard in Paso Robles and benefiting must! charities and the San Luis Obispo County Cattle Women scholarship program, there’s a heck of a lot to chew on.

(March 21-April 19): The Greek word philokalia is translated as the “love of the beautiful, the exalted, the excellent.” I propose that we make it your keyword for the next three weeks—the theme you keep at the forefront of your awareness everywhere you go. But think a while before you say yes to my invitation. To commit yourself to being so relentlessly in quest of the sublime would be a demanding job. Are you truly prepared to adjust to the poignant sweetness that might stream into your life as a result? (April 20-May 20): It’s a favorable time to strengthen your fundamentals and stabilize your foundation. I invite you to devote your finest intelligence and grittiest determination to this project. How? Draw deeply from your roots. Tap into the mother lode of inspiration that never fails you. Nurture the web of life that nurtures you. The cosmos will offer you lots of help and inspiration whenever you attend to these practical and sacred matters. Best-case scenario: You will bolster your personal power for many months to come.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Two talking porcupines are enjoying an erotic tryst in a cactus garden. It’s a prickly experience, but that’s how they like it. “I always get horny when things get thorny,” says one. Meanwhile, in the rose garden next door, two unicorns wearing crowns of thorns snuggle and nuzzle as they receive acupuncture from a swarm of helpful hornets. One of the unicorns murmurs, “This is the sharpest pleasure I’ve ever known.” Now here’s the moral of these far-out fables, Gemini: Are you ready to gamble on a cagey and exuberant ramble through the brambles? Are you curious about the healing that might become available if you explore the edgy frontiers of gusto?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I predict that four weeks from now you will be enjoying a modest but hearty feeling of accomplishment—on one condition: You must not get diverted by the temptation to achieve trivial successes. In other words, I hope you focus on one or two big projects, not lots of small ones. What do I mean by “big projects”? How about these: taming your fears; delivering a delicate message that frees you from an onerous burden; clarifying your relationship with work; and improving your ability to have the money you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Spain’s most revered mystic poet was St. John of the Cross, who lived from 1542 to 1591. He went through a hard time at age 35, when he was kidnapped by a rival religious sect and imprisoned in a cramped cell. Now and then he was provided with scraps of bread and dried fish, but he almost starved to death. After 10 months, he managed to escape and make his way to a convent that gave him sanctuary. For his first meal, the nuns served him warm pears with cinnamon. I reckon that you’ll soon be celebrating your own version of a jailbreak, Leo. It’ll be less drastic and more metaphorical than St. John’s, but still a notable accomplishment. To celebrate, I invite you to enjoy a ritual meal of warm pears with cinnamon.

you to draw strength from. They’re designed to put you in the proper alignment to take maximum advantage of current cosmic rhythms. For the next three weeks, say them periodically throughout the day. 1. “I want to give the gifts I like to give rather than the gifts I’m supposed to give.” 2. “If I can’t do things with excellence and integrity, I won’t do them at all.” 3. “I intend to run on the fuel of my own deepest zeal, not on the fuel of someone else’s passions.” 4. “My joy comes as much from doing my beautiful best as from pleasing other people.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The world will never fully know or appreciate the nature of your heroic journey. Even the people who love you the most will only ever understand a portion of your epic quest to become your best self. That’s why it’s important for you to be generous in giving yourself credit for all you have accomplished up until now and will accomplish in the future. Take time to marvel at the majesty and miracle of the life you have created for yourself. Celebrate the struggles you’ve weathered and the liberations you’ve initiated. Shout “Glory hallelujah!” as you acknowledge your persistence and resourcefulness. The coming weeks will be an especially favorable time to do this tricky but fun work.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I suspect you may have drug-like effects on people in the coming weeks. Which drugs? At various times, your impact could resemble cognac, magic mushrooms, and Ecstasy—or sometimes all three simultaneously. What will you do with all that power to kill pain and alter moods and expand minds? Here’s one possibility: Get people excited about what you’re excited about, and call on them to help you bring your dreams to a higher stage of development. Here’s another: Round up the support you need to transform any status quo that’s boring or unproductive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” So said psychologist Carl Jung. What the hell did that meddling, self-important know-it-all mean by that? Oops. Sorry to sound annoyed. My cranky reaction may mean I’m defensive about the possibility that I’m sometimes a bit preachy myself. Maybe I don’t like an authority figure wagging his finger in my face because I’m suspicious of my own tendency to do that. Hmmm. Should I therefore refrain from giving you the advice I’d planned to? I guess not. Listen carefully, Capricorn: Monitor the people and situations that irritate you. They’ll serve as mirrors. They’ll show you unripe aspects of yourself that may need adjustment or healing.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A source of tough and tender inspiration seems to be losing some of its signature potency. It has served you well. It has given you many gifts, some difficult and some full of grace. But now I think you will benefit from transforming your relationship with its influence. As you might imagine, this pivotal moment will be best navigated with a clean, fresh, open attitude. That’s why you’ll be wise to thoroughly wash your own brain—not begrudgingly, but with gleeful determination. For even better results, wash your heart, too.

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “I’m very attracted to things that I can’t define,” says Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons. I’d love for you to adopt that attitude, Virgo. You’re entering the Season of Generous Mystery. It will be a time when you can generate good fortune for yourself by being eager to get your expectations overturned and your mind blown. Transformative opportunities will coalesce as you simmer in the influence of enigmas and anomalies. Meditate on the advice of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke: “I want to beg you to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I’ve compiled a list of four mantras for

(Feb. 19-March 20): A “power animal” is a creature selected as a symbolic ally by a person who hopes to imitate or resonate with its strengths. The salmon or hare might be a good choice if you’re seeking to stimulate your fertility, for example. If you aspire to cultivate elegant wildness, you might choose an eagle or horse. For your use in the coming months, I propose a variation on this theme: the “power fruit.” From now until at least May 2018, your power fruit should be the ripe strawberry. Why? Because this will be a time when you’ll be naturally sweet, not artificially so; when you will be juicy, but not dripping all over everything; when you will be compact and concentrated, not bloated and bursting at the seams; and when you should be plucked by hand, never mechanically.
