SLO plans new building codes, programs to curb emissions

A

s San Luis Obispo eyes a 2035 target to reach net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions status, city officials are developing new building codes that will go beyond what the state requires for energy efficiency in new development—while also crafting carbon offset policies and retrofitting programs for the community’s existing building stock. Those policies could include fees on natural gas in new buildings to offset their contribution to climate change and help fund rebates for appliance retrofits. The overall goal is to sharply curb the emissions coming from SLO’s building sector, which, despite dropping by 21 percent since 2005, still account for 18 percent of citywide emissions. SLO leaders say it’s the right time to make the code changes with two major developments—San Luis Ranch and Avila Ranch—starting construction in 2019-20, and some 4,600 housing units and 5 million squarefeet of nonresidential space planned in total by 2035. City Council members offered their unanimous support during a Feb. 19 study session about the issue. “I think this is absolutely an effort we need to pursue,” Mayor Heidi Harmon said. The future building codes, which are set to come back to the City Council for approval this summer, will aim for all-electric development. Since SLO will start sourcing its electricity from Monterey Bay Community Power in 2020, a Community Choice Energy agency with a carbon-free supply, natural gas will emerge as the primary source of building emissions going forward, a city staff report stated. While the city can’t outright prohibit natural gas in new development, it can require that certain electric systems be installed, like electric air source heat pumps for space heating. It can also require builders to pay fees to offset their GHG emissions.

RENDERING COURTESY OF THE CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO

NEW CODE San Luis Obispo plans to adopt new green building codes this summer that will apply to developments like the incoming 580-home San Luis Ranch, rendered here.

“We’d say, ‘Sure you can install [natural gas] but there would be a price to do so,’ ” Sustainability Manager Chris Read said, explaining a hypothetical carbon offset program, “and the price would reflect the impacts of climate change in our community, and [be] used to fund future retrofit programs.” SLO will first study the cost effectiveness of implementing a future “reach” code—which has to show that its practical costs would be equal to or less than the state’s code—to get approval from the California Energy Commission. While city officials see the new codes as an important step to curbing emissions in new projects, buildings that already exist will still make up the majority of SLO’s projected stock in 2035. Identifying tools to retrofit those buildings with carbon-neutral electric appliances will be the long-term challenge. “The retrofit program is probably the most exciting part of this when you think about how much we do have with older buildings and

existing housing stock,” Councilmember Aaron Gomez said. “I think a huge barrier to that is just simple cost. You have electrical upgrades you have to do just to get them ready for these appliances.” SLO joins a handful of cities in California, including Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Palo Alto, and Fremont, that are looking beyond state codes to achieve more ambitious climate goals. Eric Veium, who chairs the SLO Climate Coalition, a group of sustainability professionals and community members providing input to the city on climate policies, reminded council members of this leadership role. “These reach codes will transform California, and what comes from California will transform China and those that will follow,” Veium said. “I want to underline how important our action is in the broad context of global transformation of energy.” Δ —Peter Johnson

Paso repeals emergency short-term rental ordinance

he didn’t have a conflict of interest because he isn’t the direct owner of the house at 821 16th St. in Paso Robles. After the vote, Yang said, she and Hamon became aware that because he’s a trustee of the property, it could be considered an interest in the property. At the Feb. 19 meeting, the council voted to push the ordinance back to the city’s short-term rental task force. During public comment, resident George Avendia said that figuring out a fair policy for short-term rentals is not a new issue, and it’s not something everyone will agree with. “You can be on one side of the fence wishing you had permanent neighbors, and you can be on the other side of the fence saying you want to exercise your property rights,” Avendia said. “But there has to be some happy medium in the middle where people can still have a business and people can still have neighbors, because right now that’s not happening.” The next task force meeting is slated for Feb. 27 at 10 a.m. in the City Council chambers. —Karen Garcia

A Paso Robles City Council member’s indirect conflict of interest put the brakes on passing a short-term rental ordinance. At the Feb. 19 City Council meeting, Mayor Steve Martin said the council should halt approval of the ordinance because the community had voiced concerns about fairness and expressed confusion with the policy. “It doesn’t mean that just because we’ve been waiting for three years to do something, we should do something that is ill-advised,” Martin said. “I think there are too many wrinkles in this shirt tonight to iron out.” The council unanimously voted to repeal the city’s recent short-term rental urgency ordinance that it previously adopted on Feb. 5, because Councilmember John Hamon has an indirect conflict of interest due to a short-term rental property his family owns in the city. City Attorney Iris Yang said that she had informed Hamon prior to the Feb. 5 vote that

Court upholds restitution for man who made threat against school

A man convicted of planning and executing an elaborate threat that shut down San Gabriel Elementary School for two weeks in 2015 will not see a reduction in the hundreds of thousands of dollars he’s required to pay in restitution. A California appellate court’s Feb. 4 ruling essentially upheld the $235,341 judgment against Bret Stephen Landen, 21, of Atascadero, who was convicted of threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction and making criminal threats in connection with the 2015 incident. However, the judge ordered that a portion of the money will go to the state of California instead of the Atascadero Unified School District. Landen, who was 18 at the time of the incident, was arrested after he set up an elaborate “game” at the elementary school on Sept. 11, 2015. According to investigators, he left notes for teachers at the school, urging them to play the “game” and asking them to locate different sets of keys. Some were located in a container zip-tied to a nearby fence and were filled with what was determined to be a mix of sodium and cyanide. The notes stated that there would be “consequences … possibly affecting the children” if his instructions were not followed. “This was not a harmless prank,” the appeals court stated in the decision. Landen was sentenced to one year in jail and ordered to pay restitution after pleading no contest to the charges against him in April 2016. The restitution money covered a number of expenses the school and district incurred due to the incident, such as $2,778 to rekey San Gabriel classrooms and $32,585 for chemical testing. Those costs also included $68,722 in restitution to make up for the loss of funding from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) the district should have received during the two weeks the school was shut down due to the incident. Because the state of California eventually reimbursed the district for that ADA money, the appeals court ruled that Landen should pay the $68,722 to the state instead of the district. “The amount of restitution [Landen] must pay does not change,” the ruling stated. Landen’s appeal attempted to make the argument that the amount of the restitution should be reduced because his threat was only made against San Gabriel Elementary School and not the district. The court however, was not swayed by the claims. “But San Gabriel school is part of the district, and Landen minimizes the impact of his actions on the district,” the ruling stated. —Chris McGuinness

Local resident harasses Morro Bay council member

Dawn Addis, Morro Bay City Council member and co-founder of Women’s March SLO, said she has been the target of sexism and harassment from a local resident. In a statement during a Feb. 13 council meeting, Addis said she started receiving

VIEWER DISCRETION aggressive and hateful emails the morning of her second City Council meeting. “You have got to be one of the most vile, despicable, corrupt, morally bankrupt, hypocritical cunts I have ever had the displeasure of seeing,” the email, which New Times obtained, stated. There were two photos accompanying the email message: a photo of Addis and one of the Nazi flag. Rock Catlett, acting commander for the Morro Bay Police Department, said the department has identified the resident as Mark Hanson. The harassing communication was enough for the department to submit a report to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office—which is currently reviewing the report—Catlett said. Eric Dobroth, the county’s assistant district attorney, said while he was unable to speak to the specifics of this case, he can speak generally about this type of situation. Dobroth said it’s really a balance between an individual’s First Amendment right and freedom of expression versus somebody’s rights to be free from threats of physical harm. He said people have the right to say that they don’t like someone because of their gender, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. “At the end of the day, the more personal the attacks get, the more they either overtly or covertly convey a threat of physical safety. That’s when you’re going to start potentially running afoul of the criminal statute,” he said. Addis told New Times that she received criticism during her campaign for City Council and after being elected. She expects people not to agree with every decision or point of view she has, she said. “That’s part of why we’re in a democracy, we have an open form of government where the general public gets to have a say, but this was completely different,” she said. “It went into extremely disparaging vulgar language that has very little to do with the democratic process.” Addis said it felt like a clear attempt to intimidate her, as a woman. After notifying a colleague and the authorities, Addis said she received more emails calling her a coward for not responding to Hanson directly. “So, you would like me to stop the personal attacks against you. Well I would like you to [change your position on a city policy] … if you agree to do this, I will agree to stop any personal attacks. … You need to grow a pair and put on your big girl pants,” Addis said a second email from Hanson stated. At the Feb. 13 council meeting, Councilmember Marlys McPherson said she had received sexist harassing emails from Hanson as well, and Mayor John Headding said he had received aggressive emails from Hanson that weren’t gender specific. —Karen Garcia

Peterson resigns from Grover Beach City Council

Grover Beach City Councilmember Debbie Peterson is resigning, citing concerns over alleged corruption in both the city and county. Peterson, who previously served as Grover Beach mayor and a City Council member, was most recently elected to the council in 2016. She announced her resignation effective on Feb. 19 in a letter sent to local media outlets. In the letter, Peterson cited concerns over “insider games” that she claimed are taking place on both the council and SLO County’s sewer and waste management agencies. “I cannot betray the trust of those who elected me by looking the other way to avoid rocking the boat,” Peterson wrote. As evidence, Peterson cites her work in hiring former IRS auditor Carl Knudson to investigate the South SLO County Sanitation District, which eventually led to the criminal conflict of interest prosecution of its former chief executive. She also mentioned the ongoing investigation into the SLO County Integrated Waste Management Authority in connection with allegations of fiscal management. Peterson claimed that Grover Beach continued to appoint officials involved in “double dealing” to the boards that oversee those agencies. As of Feb. 20, no Grover Beach council members have been charged or named by the SLO District Attorney’s Office in connection with either the closed sanitation district criminal case, or the ongoing waste management investigation. Peterson also claimed that she resigned because of the way the council created and awarded its licenses for commercial cannabis businesses, which she characterized as “pay-toplay.” Officials from the SLO County District Attorney’s Office told New Times that they were not aware of any ongoing criminal investigation into the Grover Beach City Council or any of its members by the office’s Public Integrity Unit, which investigates confl ict of interest allegations among other crimes.

by Jayson Mellom

Peterson’s resignation comes more than one month after the council voted to appoint a new member, attorney Desi Lance, to a seat left open after the November 2018 elections. Once again, the remaining members of the council will now have to decide whether to hold another appointment process to fill Peterson’s vacant seat, or hold a special election. —Chris McGuinness

Avila Beach Pier could reopen soon

After three years of being closed indefi nitely, the Port San Luis Harbor District is working on a plan to get half of the Avila Beach Pier open to the public. Andrea Lueker, harbor manager, said the commission hired the Long Beachbased infrastructure advisory film Moffat & Nichol to do an assessment of the pier. At a Feb. 13 harbor commission special meeting, the firm recommended that the pier could be reopened halfway with some maintenance and long-term rehabilitation. In order to return the pier to full pedestrian capacity, the district would have to restore 30 to 40 existing piles, have regular inspections to monitor ongoing deterioration, and do regular maintenance to address future deterioration and storm damage. Lueker said the district doesn’t have a plan or a timeline for the maintenance or restoration of the pier yet. With the recommendations in hand, she said, staff is working to have a draft of a plan at the next commission meeting. “This is a priority for the harbor because it’s an iconic structure on the Central Coast,” she said. “Getting out on the pier is the only way some people get out on the water.” In June 2015, then Port San Luis Harbor District General Manager Steve McGrath made an executive decision to close the pier indefinitely. According to a staff report, local structural and civil engineering business Shoreline Engineering Inc. concluded that roughly 27 percent of the piles sustaining the Avila Beach Pier were in poor or serious condition.

Shared future

Lack of public input in Diablo Canyon decommission plan a worrying sign, SLO County says

A

s PG&E sweats in the national spotlight after its historic bankruptcy filing last month, the utility giant is also facing questions from San Luis Obispo County attorneys about its latest filing in the Diablo Canyon Power Plant decommissioning process. In a decommissioning document filed with state regulators on Dec. 13, PG&E offered little information about its future plans and uses for the land and infrastructure at the nuclear plant once it powers down in 2024-25. That omission—combined with scant mention of a community panel’s recommendations for the decommission—has SLO County officials concerned about an “opaque process” that may weaken the public’s say in what becomes of the site. “We not only want a voice or a seat, but we want some influence,” SLO County Counsel Rita Neal told New Times. “We want to make it loud and clear to the [California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)] and PG&E that we’re not going away. We’re demanding they pay attention to what this community’s asked for.” The community’s chief interests are that Diablo Canyon’s roughly 12,000 acres of surrounding coastline are transferred to conservation entities, that the lands are safely accessible to the public through trails and other offerings, and that PG&E looks at repurposing certain plant infrastructure—like the desalination plant—for the benefit of the community. “It’s thousands of acres of beautiful open-space property in this county,” Neal said. “There’s a whole infrastructure out there that the county believes we should have input in what happens to it.” Neal’s office made that clear in a Jan. 17 filing with the CPUC, which came in response to PG&E’s triennial (once every three years) application to recover rate funds for plant decommissioning activities. PG&E’s application spells out a $4.8 billion decommission of Diablo Canyon that will commence immediately after the plant ceases production. According to SLO County, the documents provide little detail on a future land-use plan for the site—or a specific process to determine those plans. “We want specifics from PG&E, not generalities,” Neal said. The application also suggests that PG&E intends to dismantle the desalination plant, despite the county’s hope that it can be used in the future to meet community water needs. The county points out in its response that prior to PG&E’s decision to close Diablo in 2016, the parties were in the midst of discussions to utilize unused capacity in the desalination plant to deliver water for community benefit.

“The issue of water in the SLO area is a critical one, particularly with the increased threat of wildfires in California and extreme drought conditions that have persisted with limited relief since 2002,” the county’s filing reads. In response to questions from New Times about the county’s concerns, a PG&E rep said that deliberations about the future of Diablo Canyon lands and facilities are “ongoing,” and that when they “move beyond an evaluation phase, PG&E will bring these proposals to the CPUC as required.” PG&E must submit decommission plans and cost estimates again to the CPUC in 2021 and 2024. Commission proceedings for its current application will occur throughout 2019. “PG&E remains committed to a public stakeholder process ahead of making any decisions on the future use of Diablo Canyon lands and facilities,” Suzanne Hosn, a PG&E communications official, wrote in an email.

‘We’re demanding they pay attention to what this community’s asked for.’ —SLO County Counsel Rita Neal

One of those public commitments is that PG&E will continue to hold meetings of the Diablo Canyon Decommissioning Engagement Panel—a group of 13 community members chosen to represent local interests in the decommissioning process. The panel met in public more than a dozen times in 2018, culminating in its strategic vision in December. The group’s scheduled to meet just quarterly in 2019, starting with a meeting on spent fuel storage on Feb. 22 and 23 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Embassy Suites in SLO. Despite PG&E’s assurances of continued public outreach, SLO County warns that it was PG&E that “created the panel, decided who could sit on the panel,” and crafted a governance structure where the panel makes no formal motions or votes. “While the engagement panel’s charter states that its purpose is to provide input on behalf of the local community to PG&E, it has more often felt like a platform for PG&E to inform the community of its own agenda,” the county filing states. To New Times, Neal emphasized the broader importance of establishing the county’s position of influence in the future of what right now is a privately held corporate asset. “There’s some built-in mistrust in PG&E,” Neal said, “and that wasn’t helped when they announced [Diablo’s] closure without the input of the host community. ... Our biggest issue is whether PG&E’s plan adequately addressees the needs of the community.” Δ Assistant Editor Peter Johnson can be reached at pjohnson@newtimesslo.com.

Reclaiming water Inside Pismo Beach’s plan to revitalize the Santa Maria groundwater basin

T

he Pismo Beach City Council wants to build a $28 million facility that will purify Pismo Beach and South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District wastewater and inject it into the Santa Maria groundwater basin. If completed, it will prevent salt water from seeping into one of South County’s water sources and provide more water to South County residents. “People up and down the coast are looking to use technology like this in the light of climate change and hydrological change,” Water Systems Consulting engineer Dan Heimel said during a Feb. 1 tour of the demonstration facility. The plant will filter water three times: through microfiltration, allowing only water to pass through tiny pores; reverse osmosis, to remove salt; and ultraviolet advanced oxidation, to kill any remaining compounds. Wells will inject the purified water 200 to 400 feet into the groundwater basin, and after two years in the basin it can be used by South County cities. Heimel estimated that the plant will take 30 months to construct, and, by the time it’s finished, will increase municipal groundwater supplies by 30 percent and reduce wastewater discharged to the

ocean by 77 percent. Groundwater drifts through small cracks underneath the ground. When people draw too much water from wells, or when not enough water soaks into the ground, the basin can sink, allowing salt water to seep in. Oceano Beach Community Association President Cynthia Replogle voiced concerns over the project at a Pismo City Council meeting on Jan. 15. Replogle believes the proposed location of the plant will flood due to sea level rise caused by global warming, and that project leaders should choose a new site. “It’s just a fact that the plant will have to move during sea level rise,” said Replogle, who also serves on the Oceano Community Services District (CSD) board of directors. “Maybe 10 years, 20 years, 30 years, we don’t know. But it doesn’t make sense to put in new infrastructure in that location when we know the plant is going to have to move.” The planned location of the facility is at the South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District Treatment Plant, according to a Jan. 9 presentation District Administrator Jeremy Ghent made to the CSD board. The plant, at 1600 Aloha

Place, is on Oceano’s 100-year flood plain. Sea level rise south of Cape Mendocino in Northern California is expected to be between 2 and 12 inches by 2030, 5 and 24 inches by 2050, and 17 by 66 inches by 2100, according to the November 2018 Draft Local Hazard Mitigation Plan for the Oceano Community Services District. Pismo Beach Public Works Director Ben Fine told New Times that he’s not worried about the facility being permanently flooded, but he has been searching for alternate locations where it could be built. “We have been looking for another site. In a perfect world, the facility would be located outside of the floodplain and outside of the coastal zone,” Fine said at a Feb. 1 Regional Water Quality Control Board meeting. “That is our desire. Finding a property suitable with an owner who’s willing to sell or enter into an option agreement has proven very difficult.” Replogle is unsure of how the project will benefit Oceano, which is supporting the project and used 21 acre-feet of groundwater in 2017, according to the Northern Cities Management Area 2017 Annual Monitoring Report. The majority of Oceano’s water, 697 acre-feet in 2017, is taken out of Lopez Lake. Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, Oceano, and rural and agricultural residents used 3,456 acre-feet of groundwater

“You know those stories of fate interrupting your life; it was one of those,” Jones said. “I had no idea that I would be interested in it, and once I did, it was all I wanted to do.” With 21 years of experience under his belt, Jones is the owner of True West Tattoo, a tattoo parlor that just opened its doors on Marsh Street in San Luis Obispo. This isn’t his first business venture. Jones is the co-owner of a parlor in Costa Mesa called Port City Tattoo, but True West is the first parlor that he’s the sole owner of. Six years ago, Jones moved to SLO with his wife because he was ready to leave Orange County and had fond memories of the Central Coast. “I grew up camping in Big Sur, so this place was always a stopping point,” he said. Two years into their move, they had a daughter, which was all the more reason for Jones to lay down some roots in the community. True West Tattoo is right next door to the Photo Shop. The parlor’s glass door trimmed in red has a decal of a cowboy riding a wild horse. A staircase with an Asian-style dragon on the wall welcomes you to the world above. A parlor wall is lined with framed works of traditional American and Asian tattoo art. Jones said he hopes to showcase the cornerstones of tattooing with his parlor and his team of artists, because to him, tattoos are folk art. Jones introduced himself and his team

t 16 years old, Eric Jones had grown up drawing and was placed in art classes, thanks to his parents. At the time, he had some older friends who were interested in tattoos. “[The tattoos were] more based around our faith, who we were, who we identified with, and the heaviness of being a teenager,” Jones said. Naturally, he started picking up tattoo magazines that showcased artists and various styles of permanent body art. He re-created the art that he saw on the pages, adding his own personal touch. Jones said he grew up in a household that wasn’t very fond of tattoos, so when he turned 18, he asked his parents for permission to get his first tattoo. With some resistance they said yes, and Jones paid a visit to a tattoo artist named Sid who had tattooed Jones’ friends in Santa Ana. Jones showed Sid his book of drawings, and his artwork became his first tattoo, a swallow on his shoulder. It wouldn’t be the last one that he would get. “Besides the permanence of the tattoo, just the whole experience and what it was giving me at that moment in my life,” he said of their importance. “Maybe a sense of freedom or independence, you know, right as you’re on the foreground of moving out and becoming an adult.” Several months after that first tattoo, Sid gave Jones a call and asked if he wanted to learn how to use his skills with a needle and ink. Jones became a tattoo artist at 19.

from the Santa Maria basin in 2017, about 40 percent of their total water use. Lopez provides 53 percent of their total water. Even though groundwater use has declined since 2007 due to a slow economy and conservation efforts, the report’s authors predicted that the groundwater basin has little ability to withstand droughts or increases in pumping. The Nipomo Mesa, which historically feeds into the basin, has less surface and subsurface flows to recharge into the basin every year. Changing weather patterns and precipitation, including prolonged droughts and insufficient rainfall, are forcing communities to create backup plans for water, Regional Water Quality Control Board Assistant Executive Officer Matthew Keeling said. “It’s a very precious resource, and in some places it’s becoming finite,” Keeling said. Even though seawater intrusion is at bay for now, a 2009 incident of intrusion in the basin was enough to send warning signals to protect the water South County has, Keeling said. More than that, he added, there should be ongoing outreach and education about the need to conserve water. “We all should be more conscious of and use less water—that should be the No. 1 thing people should be looking at,” Keeling said.

• February is American Heart Month— no not the pink cutouts you give to loved ones, but the red pumping heart in your chest. The month also serves as an

annual reminder to check heart health. Arroyo Grande Community Hospital, French Hospital Medical Center, and Marian Regional Medical Center (Dignity Health Central Coast Hospitals) are offering a free online cardiac risk assessment. The completed, confidential assessment is given to individuals and their primary care physicians. It provides a rundown of the results, isolates key risk factors, and helps them understand what they can do to improve their heart health.

How did Central Coast cities, nonprofits, and workers cope with the partial government shutdown? BY CHRIS CHRIS MCGUINNESS MCGUINNESS BY

NO PAY Members of the U.S. Coast Guard work on a boat near the Morro Bay station. Coast Guard members were just some of the more than 800,000 workers who were furloughed or forced to work without pay during the shutdown.

RIPPLE EFFECT The historic government shutdown closed some government offices and impacted federal employees, nonprofits, and cities and counties across the country, including on the Central Coast.

I

t was nearing noon outside the Internal Revenue Service’s branch office in Santa Maria. After weeks of wet weather, it was sunny again, and the bright light coming from a cloudless sky warmed the cracked black asphalt of the building’s mostly empty parking lot. An American flag hung limply from a tall pole. There was no wind to lift it. Like the parking lot, the IRS office was completely empty. The doors were locked, and a large sign on the door announced, “In the event of a government shutdown this office will be closed” in large block letters. It was Jan. 25, the 35th and last day of the longest federal government shutdown in U.S. history. Around the same time that day more than 2,700 miles away in the White House Rose Garden, President Donald Trump announced an end to the shutdown, retreating from an attempt to withhold government funding in order to press congressional Democrats to approve billions of dollars to build a wall along the southern border. The concession was temporary, just three weeks, but it meant relief for an estimated 800,000 federal government workers—who spent the 35 days without a paycheck—and hope that a more permanent solution could be reached. News of the shutdown’s imminent end reached local labor leaders just as they

were preparing to hold a press conference outside of the Santa Barbara airport to call for an end to the nearly five-week ordeal that left so many government employees and their families without a way to pay the bills. “It’s a strange feeling when you put all of this together … then on our way down here we get 40 alerts on our phones telling us there’s a deal,” Central Coast Labor Council Executive Director Jeremy Goldberg told the crowd that gathered at the event he helped organize. Such last-minute confusion felt like a fitting end to the shutdown, which left Central Coast cities scrambling to find ways to mitigate its impacts, nonprofits worrying about securing funding to continue to operate and provide services, and thousands of federal workers and their families considering tough choices as politicians wrangled in the nation’s capital. “This isn’t about a wall. This isn’t about immigration,” Goldberg told the crowd. “This is about working families.”

Local governments

The shutdown most directly impacted the federal government and its various agencies. But Central Coast cities, counties, and their associated agencies had to assess what, if any, of their own services might be affected, as well as look for ways they might

Operations, TSA, and interruption to their operations, mainly control tower staffing were unaffected because they were primarily funded by at the Santa Barbara airport as well, local tax dollars rather than federal funds. according to spokesperson Deanna “We don’t anticipate any significant Zachrisson. impact,” SLO County Administrator Wade “That was really not something we saw Horton wrote in response to questions at the Santa Barbara airport,” she told from New Times, on Dec. 20, 2018, just two New Times on Feb. 14, weeks after the days before the shutdown began. shutdown ended. “There was very little As the shutdown wore on, that impact to the staffing during that period prediction mostly held true, with of time.” exceptions being areas or agencies where While it didn’t affect airport operations, the operations and funding of local and Zachrisson said that the staff and vendors federal government intersected.

a federal prison, also passed a utility payment relief program. The city council agendized a discussion about offering further financial assistance to federal workers impacted by the shutdown for a Feb. 5 meeting, but the item was never discussed because the shutdown ended prior to the meeting. “The shutdown is nonexistent at the moment,” Councilmember Victor Vega, who originally asked for the issue to be agendized, said at the Feb. 5 meeting. Although the shutdown was over, council members were concerned that it could happen again after the temporary government authorization ended in late February. Lompoc Councilmember Jim Mosby spoke about it at the same meeting. “If it happens again, we are prepared, right?” he asked.

The workers

Efforts of the Central Coast’s local governments did little to numb the sting of missing two paychecks. The region’s federal government workers had to make tough choices during the weeks-long shutdown. “You had to make decisions every day … whether or not you were going to buy food, or buy gas, or buy medication,” Erich Schmidt, a TSA employee at the Santa Barbara airport, said at the Jan. 25 press conference. “I had to decide whether or not I was going to pay for chemo for my degenerative condition or whether I was going to feed my family.” Schmidt is also a member and political coordinator for the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 1260, a union that represents more than 1,900 TSA officers at several California airports, including those in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and SLO. AFGE Local 1260 President Bobby Orozco Jr. said that many of the TSA officers in the union had faced similar hardships during the shutdown. “This is not what these folks signed up for,” he said. “Already many of our members have had to make tough decisions.” While union employees were able to air their concerns about the shutdown, members of the U.S. Coast Guard, which has a station in Morro Bay, were prohibited from speaking to media. Some of them did, however, relay their own stories of shutdown hardships to U.S. Rep. Salud Cabajal (D-Santa Barbara).

On Jan. 19, 29 days into the shutdown, Carbajal visited the Morro Bay station, later characterizing the situation as “shameful.” Many Coast Guard members were furloughed or, like the TSA officers, forced to work without pay. “On top of that, the Coast Guard station crew are not getting paid meal and housing allowances,” Carbajal said.

The nonprofits

As furloughed federal workers worried about putting food on the table for their families, at least two nonprofit organizations in SLO and Santa Barbara counties stepped up to help them out. During the shutdown, both the SLO County and Santa Barbara County food banks opened their doors to federal workers and distributed food to any of them who needed it. Food Bank of Santa Barbara County spokesperson Judith Smith-Meyer compared the situation to the unexpected and increased need for food after the county’s recent floods and fires. “It was an unusual need in that it came from a population that doesn’t normally use the food bank,” she said. “It fell into the category of a disaster that reached into the community beyond the daily disaster of hunger.” During the 35-day shutdown, the Santa Barbara County food bank distributed a total of 21,296 pounds of food to 458 families of unpaid federal workers in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Lompoc. The greatest number of individuals seeking food from the food bank were correctional employees from the federal prison and individuals associated with Vandenberg Air Force Base in Lompoc, Smith-Meyer said. The Food Bank Coalition of SLO County also sought out areas with large concentrations of federal workers during the shutdown, including taking food to the SLO airport for TSA workers, Morro Bay for Coast Guard personnel, and to areas of North County to help furloughed U.S. Forest Service workers. “We tried to target where these pockets of federal workers were,” Food Bank Coalition of SLO County CEO Kevin Drabinski said. “We wanted them to know that wherever they lived [in the county], they qualified and could get access to food.” Drabinski said the food bank also saw an immediate and strong response from the larger SLO County community, with

HELPING OUT Nonprofit food banks in SLO and Santa Barbara County helped provide furloughed government workers with food for themselves and their families during the 35-day shutdown.

many people coming in to ask if they could donate food or money to help the federal workers and their families. “I think there was a very public acknowledgement of how intimately food is woven into the fabric of our lives,” he said. “They saw the impact [of the shutdown] and their first reaction was to realize that these people need to be able to feed their families.” As food banks jumped in to help struggling families, area nonprofits that rely on federal dollars to provide services to needy populations worried about how to cope without critical funding. That included organizations like RISE SLO, which provides support and services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in SLO County. The organization receives more than 50 percent of its funding through federal grants. The money goes directly to support the organization’s programs, including two shelters, crisis hotlines, and legal support for victims, according to RISE Executive Director Jennifer Adams. Speaking to New Times on Jan. 23, 33 days into the shutdown, Adams said that RISE only had enough funding to last through March 1. “We have some cash reserves, but that can only take us so far,” she said. “Past that, we’d have to look at things like furloughs. … We don’t want to send people packing. We want people to know that we are going to do everything we can to continue to provide services and keep our doors open.” The shutdown also put a financial strain on Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, which helps provide housing for lowincome individuals and families in SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. Peoples’ Self-Help relies heavily on government subsidies to provide tenants with rent vouchers, as well as a program that provides funding for individuals to help build their homes. In a an interview with New Times before the shutdown ended, People’s Self-Help Housing President John Fowler vowed that the organization would not evict anyone due to the shutdown, but he admitted that the nonprofit was having to dip into its own pockets to continue providing some services at a cost of about $100,000 a week. “We can operate comfortably through February,” Fowler said at the time. “But after that, we will have to make some hard calls.”

Recovering?

Nearly one month after the final day of the shutdown, Congress passed a bill to permanently fund the government past Feb. 15. Government workers are back on the job, but missing two paychecks set many of them back. Santa Barbara County food bank spokesperson Smith-Meyer noted that even into early February, many federal workers continued to come back to get much-needed food for their families. Data showed that after Jan. 25, the food bank handed out more than 10,000 pounds of additional food to federal workers. “When they weren’t getting paid, a lot of expenses, like bills, got postponed,” she said. “When the shutdown ended and they got paid, there were a lot of backlogged expenses they had to take care of. They didn’t disappear overnight.” And that was for those government workers who actually did get the pay they missed out on. Back pay for federal contractors wasn’t included in the bill to fund the government past Feb. 15. While once furloughed workers are again receiving paychecks, the uncertainty, worry, and hardship of the shutdown has left deep wounds. Local TSA union president Orozco made that point clear during the Jan. 25 press conference in Santa Barbara. “While certain members of Congress are patting themselves on the backs for their work in ending this shutdown,” he said, “it’s an empty boast, as the effects of this massive shutdown will have longlasting effects on our members’ lives.” TSA officer Schmidt echoed similar sentiments and voiced a growing sense of resentment over the shutdown being the result of political brinksmanship over immigration and the president’s demand for the border wall. Schmidt’s demand was simple: “Stop using us as pawns.” Even as the shutdown retreats into the past, and new heated political battles take its place in the public eye, it’s likely to remain a sore spot for people like Orozco, Smith, and many of the other 800,000 federal workers who suffered through its impacts, particularly as the 2020 election looms. “Labor will remember your names and faces,” Orozco said. “We do not easily forget.” ∆ Staff Writer Chris McGuinness can be reached at cmcguinness@newtimesslo.com.

Green dreamin’ Replacing fossil fuel with solar and wind isn’t going well in Germany, so why would it work here?

W

ow! The Democratic Party is taking on a new face: young ambitious faces, many of them women and persons of color, arrayed in new ideas, grand plans, and endowed with a passionate intensity, inspiring a hope we haven’t seen since the early Obama days. (Whatever happened to that anyway?) Some of the recently elected congresspersons, their benches in Congress barely warm, flush with recent election victories, are already lining up for a shot at the White House, blithely undeterred by a rampant lack of experience. Yet their zeal is understandable: If someone like Trump could get elected, then anyone can … except Hillary, of course. However, one of their grand plans, the “Green New Deal,” is not really new. It’s a reiteration of a Democratic Party energy policy, long entrenched here in California, which consists of placing an unrealistic faith in the potential of “renewables” to solve our climate problem. This policy was to some degree inspired by the German Energiewende experience, where the Germans shut down half of their nuclear plants, threw tons of money at renewables like wind and solar, and then sat back to watch their greenhouse gas emissions plunge. It hasn’t happened yet. The Germans are still the biggest carbon emitters in Europe—and possibly the biggest fools—but we can’t really complain about it since we are the biggest per-capita carbon emitters in the world, emitting

about twice as much as the Germans do. So we definitely have some room for improvement in both departments. The other factor in the entrenched energy policy of the Democratic policy is a devout anti-nuclear power bias. The “Green New Deal” conspicuously omits any mention of nuclear power even though it has proven to be the safest, non-carbonemitting source of electrical power in the world. The reason for this is simple: Being anti-nuclear is the Democratic Party’s quo for the energy lobbyists’ quid. This is clearly illustrated right here in California, where we have a Legislature so awash in contributions from energy special interests (oil and gas, renewables, and electrical utilities) that our legislators will soon have to wear hip-waders to work. By a remarkable coincidence, these same energy special interests will all greatly benefit from the closing of Diablo Canyon and the banishment of nuclear power from our fair state.

22 percent of their total power production capacity, according to Clean Energy Wire. Yet, in 2018 solar only contributed to 7.5 percent of their total power production. In other words, more than two-thirds of their total solar capacity investment was wasted. In fact, the total contribution of solar to actual production was less than half of what would have been produced by the nuclear plants they shut down. Wind power fared better, but still performed at a fraction of its capacity. What made up the difference? Mostly coal with help from their remaining nuclear plants, which they still plan to shut down, and the coal guys can hardly wait. Some people never learn. Now we are getting to the really amazing part. Believe it or not, our elected representatives, mostly Democrats, are trying to do the same thing right here in our little corner of the world. They are trying to force the closure of Diablo Canyon and attempt to replace its production with “clean renewable energy” sources that we know, based on the German experience, simply will not work. Not only that, our local, elected Democrat representatives are more dedicated to loyalty to their party’s anti-nuclear line than to the interests of the community they are supposed to be serving and the environment they are mandated to protect. The Progressives

Meanwhile, the German Energiewende turned out to be an abysmal failure that can clearly be illustrated with a couple of well-established facts.

are the worst, as they are unencumbered by any valid concept of reality and are therefore more open to delusions. As a result, our community is doomed to suffer severe social and economic consequences,

yet they couldn’t care less. We’re just collateral damage resulting from the outdated, irrational, and inane antinuclear power policy of their political party. In the end, the only ones to benefit from the Diablo closure will be the natural gas utilities and their frackers, and renewable energy contractors. Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t mean to pick on the Democrats, they just happen to be in charge in California. The only good thing I can say about Republicans is that they are less hypocritical. I was raised in a union family and I belonged to a union all my working life, and most of my life I voted Democrat. But when the Clintons sold the Democratic Party to Wall Street, I had no choice but to jump ship and become an independent voter. The Democrats talk a lot about change, but it is just talk. Behind closed doors it is all business as usual. After all, they have the same masters as the Republicans. I bet they still have the super-delegates that torpedoed Bernie Sanders, which is about as undemocratic as you can get. I am an equal-opportunity independent, in that I am equally disgusted by both major parties, and I am not alone as the number of independent voters in California is fast becoming greater than that of either major party. We shall become a force to be reckoned with because we’ve pretty much had it with business as usual. Personally, I think the best thing we could do is ban both major political parties from participating in all state and local elections. But somehow I don’t think that the necessary legislation could ever make it through our Legislature. One can only hope. ∆ Mark Henry writes about energy from San Luis Obispo.

Don’t fear socialism

It seems the climate change naysayers are starting to come around. They are anxious to bash the Green New Deal as socialism, which forces them to admit that climate change is real. Now the real work begins. The Green New Deal, and those supporting it, are called socialists. It is an overused word meant to connote fear. Nobody wants to be called a socialist except Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Even Bernie hedges by calling himself a “democratic” socialist. It is time to call a spade a spade. What we really have in our country is a far-right-wing group that is so pro-capitalism they want no regulations on corporations; they should be called “Super Capitalist.” On the other side is a continuum that ranges from wanting regulated capitalism to a stricter form of capitalism that demands corporations be held accountable for their actions. No longer should we have corporations whose first priority is “profit for the shareholder.” Instead we should demand corporation’s first priority be “to do no harm.” No harm to people, no harm to the planet. If corporations were held accountable for the harm they cause, they would not be so quick to destroy the planet or produce harmful products. The 2020 presidential race will define the America we want to live in. We should not be afraid of the label socialism, instead we should call out the corporate shills who are in the White House and Senate who would rather let our planet turn to dust than stand up to the fossil fuel industry.

Do you think SLO County should adopt the new vote center model for the 2020 elections—where there are fewer polling places but they’re open for 10 days—or stick with a status quo election?

Making progress at La Loma

I can report that the La Loma Adobe at 1590 Lizzie St. no longer “sits forlornly” as Allan Cooper described in a commentary on Feb. 7 (“Demolition by neglect”). For a while after the property was dedicated in 1995 to the city, progress was slow, but in 1998 the city commissioned an

architectural history report that laid out the path to stabilization and eventual restoration. Starting in 2010, the city funded the first stage of structural and seismic improvements that would arrest its deterioration. City staff later encouraged the formation of a Friends group that is now active in building community support to protect the adobe. The Friends of La Loma Adobe has commissioned an archeological surface survey, created a concept plan for the grounds, and is bringing back historically appropriate and native plants, while removing non-natives and exotics, as well as supervising construction of internal scaffolding and an improved roof. The city has trimmed the trees near the adobe to reduce fire danger and erected a kiosk for which Friends researched and designed the history panels. Most recently, Friends partnered with the city and submitted a preliminary state grant application. The award would fund rehabilitation of the adobe and re-plastering of the exterior as first steps in restoring the structure to provide a compatible use while protecting its historical integrity. Friends is an all-volunteer nonprofit, logging more than 1,200 hours last year. How can you help bring the adobe back to life? Check out our new website (lalomaadobe.org/), donate (P.O. box 13253, SLO 93406), or come by the adobe on Friday mornings starting at 8:30 a.m. and roll up your sleeves.

Oceano needs a safe beach

Last week, State Parks disclosed its proposed new general work plan for the management of Pismo State Beach and the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. Good news: There are plans for a boardwalk on the foredunes to connect Grand Avenue with the Arroyo Grande Creek and a small structured campground next to Oso Flaco Road with its own access to the off-roading area. This campground will reduce the number of camping sites on the beach south of Arroyo Grande Creek and will relieve some of the congestion on Pier Avenue and Oceano Beach. Bad news: This southern entrance to the off-roading area would not replace Pier Avenue, and only reduces its camping traffic by 20 percent. Oceano residents and visitors will still be denied a beach that’s safe for pedestrians. State Parks’ proposal does not resolve the issue of air quality on Pier Avenue or the Mesa, which in my opinion can be resolved only by closing Pier Avenue and fencing off the La Grande Tract, the biggest cause of PM 10 pollution. Surprisingly, State Parks also wants to improve its own maintenance road from Highway 1 across the Oceano campground to the beach. Parks’ “new” plan ignores county residents’ need for safety and clean air. I am convinced that in a conflict, all parties must win. So in this fight over the Oceano beach and dunes, everyone must get LETTERS continued page 18

Kindness of strangers I t was 1 a.m., cold, dark, and wet in the parking lot of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Templeton. But that’s when families and individuals began lining up in the rain for free dental, vision, and health screening services. By 6 a.m., every slot for dental care was filled. A friend of mine (call him Frank) has CenCal Health insurance, yet no coverage for dental or vision. It was his first time visiting such a free health clinic, one that wouldn’t exist but—to quote Tennessee Williams—for the kindness of strangers. “I’d say there were 200 people there, waiting in pews after signing up at the intake table,” Frank told me. “The setup was amazing: People were getting teeth pulled and root canals. There was a ton of medical equipment. I mean, this is a church, but it looked like a MASH unit! “I sat with a family for four hours waiting for a vision test,” he continued. “Between them, they worked three or four jobs, but they can’t afford insurance. Their amazing little girl—she’s about 8—is on the autism spectrum, so she has some special needs. The mom told me flat out, ‘We often have to choose between rent, groceries, or health care.’” Are you surprised by this family’s story? Surprised that our government has looked the other way? Surprised that in 2016, 27,000 residents of our affluent San Luis Obispo County were uninsured? Rupert Chowins isn’t surprised. He’s an optometrist and one of the doctors who volunteered his Sunday to work at the free clinic in Templeton. Along with Dr. Ahmad Nooristani, he founded the Noor Foundation, which provides free care to the uninsured in San Luis Obispo. Noor sees 500 to 600 patients each month and has provided more than 25,000 health care visits since opening in 2011. “If you randomly talk to anyone at free clinics or at the Noor offices in SLO,

something: The Chumash need to have their sites well fenced off and protected. The Arroyo Grande Creek needs to not be crossed. Oceano needs a safe beach. People on the Mesa need good air. Offroaders need a piece of sand to ride on. Here is a way to meet everyone’s needs: 1,000 street vehicles—not 2,500 like at present—can drive through Parks’ improved maintenance road directly from Highway 1 to the beach for day use only of the stretch between Grand Avenue and Pier Avenue Where else would day beach users park? No beach traffic on Pier Avenue nor south of it. The beach between Pier Avenue and the end of the La Grande Tract (and La Grande Tract itself) belong to pedestrians and non-vehicular beach users, like equestrians. The La Grande Tract has been designed as a buffer zone by the county’s coastal plan and it’s the biggest cause of PM 10 pollution. Off-highway vehicle users could use the southern entrance and campground for their piece of the cake. Check out oceanodunespwp.com and send in your comments. Lucia Casalinuovo Oceano

you hear stories about the challenges our neighbors face that would make most of us wilt,” Chowins told me. “The working poor take the brunt of the disparity between the rich and the poor, especially in a high-cost, low-wage area like the Central Coast.” The health care safety net is ripped apart for many in our community, especially those who work without benefits. Although the Affordable Care Act reduced the number of uninsured in the U.S. from 17 percent in 2013 to 10 percent in 2016, those gains are reversing because of recent attacks by Republicans. Conservatives have not only done nothing to improve the act—they’ve also deliberately undercut it, slashing outreach and advertising during open enrollment and enacting a shorter enrollment period. Additionally, without a doubt, the number of uninsured—people almost literally left out in the cold—will increase this year because of the repeal of the individual mandate. So, where do the uninsured go when they get sick? According to Abe Lincoln, director of the Noor Foundation, many, if not most, go to the emergency room. That’s an expensive solution for all of us. “Noor was founded to prevent people falling through the cracks,” Lincoln told me. “We offer preventative, ongoing health care for dental and vision, and screening and treatment for things like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, type C hepatitis. “Our mission is to create a community that is overall healthier, but we can’t keep up with the growing demand. Right now, the wait for dental services is nine months.” Noor and the Seventh Day Adventist clinics represent feet-on-the-ground, community solutions to the rents in the health care safety net. “We don’t spend our energies debating the issue, we do something about it,” said Lincoln, who describes Noor’s patients as 60 to 65 percent women and 60 percent

Hispanic. “We have 27-year-olds who have fallen off their parents’ insurance, students, and almost-seniors, who don’t yet have Medicare.” Maybe this is why so many more Americans suddenly want “Medicare for All.” The Seventh Day Adventists have held five clinics, each staffed by up to 60 volunteer providers and costing $9,000 in money raised by the church for the equipment and technical setup. “The Noor Foundation template is impressive, but we’re constrained by how much money we raise from grants and donations, and by how many volunteer doctors we can recruit,” said Tom Nuckols, the foundation’s board treasurer. “Noor is such a good thing, but it’s so much work,” Chowins said. “It took the commitment of two or three people for 10 years to bring us to the service level we’re at now. We keep reminding the community, that for every dollar donated, we provide $100 of free care to the needy—that’s a tremendous return on investment. “In fact,” Chowins noted, “if 1,000 individuals donate $10 per month to Noor, and companies provide their own share of $100 per month, that would meet our ongoing costs.” With your help, the Noor Foundation and the Seventh Day Adventists bring grace, dignity, and essential health care to those who would otherwise fall through the safety net. Still, who would have guessed that this far into the 21st century our county and our nation must rely year after year on “the kindness of strangers” to stitch a bare fabric of health care together?

SLO County High

avigating politics in San Luis Obispo County—the alleged happy place—is like being a teenager trying to figure out the high school clique you want to hang with. It’s so hard to decide! Do you want to be with the ranting, raving Tea Party peeps of North County, concerned that the liberal cabal of progressives is going to turn this county into Venezeula, complaining about the immigrants who are ruining the American dream (News flash: Americans ruined the American dream. You’re welcome, next generation!), and dabbling in conspiracy theories about Harvard and the Resnicks stealing all the water out of the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin? Do you want to pal around like a clown with the CalCoastNews cohort, spreading rumors that could maybe, possibly, be half-true; side-eyeing people from the corner because everybody’s against them; and picking a new person to tell stories about over and over and over again for six months at a time? (Your time is now, Helios Dayspring! Are you really the marijuana kingpin and shady AF? I guess we’ll never know, because while documents are in short supply, hearsay is ample.) Or is it the actual Progressive Democrats you want to be like? Sitting at the top of the SLO-Town food chain, waxing poetic about how electric

appliances (which, if they catch your building on fire, will warm things up real quick) are going to replace natural gas heat in all of our buildings to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions and conveniently forgetting about how it’s winter and we have thousands of people walking the streets without heat or shelter because they live in one of the most expensive places in the nation. Everyone’s squared off in their corner of the county quad, talking smack behind each other’s backs and spreading rumors. Every now and then, someone throws a temper tantrum to break the ice. Thank God! Move over SLO County 3rd District Supervisor Adam “This Isn’t A Tea Party Meeting” Hill and 5th District Supervisor Debbie “I Will Cut Your Mic Off” Arnold. Step back SLO Mayor Heidi “Mic Drop Because Keith Gurnee Isn’t a Progressive” Harmon and Arroyo Grande Ex-Mayor Jim “I Am Honest, Just Trust Me” Hill. It’s another person’s turn to rotate back into temper-tantrum alley. Recently elected Grover Beach City Councilmember Debbie “I Don’t Wear a Blindfold” Peterson resigned because she just couldn’t take it anymore! SLO County is just way too corrupt, she alleged. “I cannot betray the trust of those who elected me by looking the other way to avoid rocking the boat,” Peterson wrote

in an email sent to media outlets. “Every council member’s first duty is to the people, to take bold action when there is no other viable option.” Well, you know what they say— there’s nothing bolder than quitting. OMG Debbie, what did you just do? You’re such a downer. She’s making all sorts of accusations on her way out the door. Everyone in this county is going down with her ship! SLOTown progressives and Tea Party northerners beware! South SLO County Sanitation District? Corrupt! SLO County District Attorney’s Office? Not doing its job! Liberal elected officials in the county? Paid off by pot! Her Grover Beach City Council colleagues? Insider game-players! Can we get a little bit of proof, Debbie? Call us. Show us your emails, text messages, and more. Give us something more than your comments. We want more than hearsay! This “pay-to-play” and “double dealing” BS ain’t gonna work no more with me, she said. Apparently, the best way to take “bold action” and “rock the boat” on something you believe in your heartof-hearts is corrupt is to not fulfill your duties as an elected official and give the council members you are accusing of backroom wheeling and dealing the

opportunity to appoint someone to fill the position you just bailed on. Meanwhile Mark “Do What I Want And I’ll Stop Harassing You” Hanson over in Morro Bay has decided that the best way to be the policy change that he wants to see is to write offensive emails to City Council members. Councilmember Dawn Addis, who cofounded Women’s March SLO, seems to be taking the brunt of the abuse—and, no surprise here, it’s sexist AF. First he called her a C U Next Tuesday, and then he told her to grow a pair— which, is he confused? Hanson is just the next idiot in line for “Sexist of the Year” here at SLO County High. It’s our annual homecoming celebration where people who threaten and attack women online get prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and eventually end up in jail because they didn’t comply with court orders. Remember the last “Sexist of the Year”? He actually threatened to kill members of Women’s March SLO. Now, he’s in jail. And if you look at Hanson’s Facebook page, he seems to also have a really hard time dealing with Speaker of the House Nancy “Queen of the Slow Clap” Pelosi. He must not like it when women have some power to make decisions for themselves and for others. I think he’d better get used to it.

Single Stroke Albert Hammond Jr. plays the SLO Brew Rock Event Center

N

YC post punk and garage rock act The Strokes were a breath of fresh air when they arrived on the scene in 2001 with their debut full-length album, Is This It. In fact, the band is credited with ushering in the garage punk revival that included acts such as the Killers, Franz Ferdinand, and Arctic Monkeys. Naturally, The Strokes’ rhythm guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.’s solo material is informed by his work with The Strokes, but he also makes forays into new wave, baroque pop, and folk. This Tuesday, Feb. 26, he plays the SLO Brew Rock Event Center (7 p.m.; 18-and-older; $20 at Boo Boo’s and slobrew.com; $25 at the door; standing room only) in support of his fourth solo release, Francis Trouble. According to press materials, Hammond’s live show is “an indie rock adventure that explores deeply personal topics that have influenced his life and music.” The videos I’ve seen online reveal an engaging and energetic performer. Since the release of Francis Trouble almost a year ago, Hammond—the son of singer-songwriter Albert Hammond (“It Never Rains in Southern California,” “99 Miles from L.A.,” “I’m a Train”)—has toured the world, playing at Roskilde, Splendour in the Grass, and Fuji Rock, not to mention late night appearances on Conan and The Late Late Show with James Corden. In The Valley Below will open the show. Also this week at the SLO Brew Rock Event Center, see TV Girl with George Clanton opening on Saturday, Feb. 23 (7 p.m.; 18-and-older; $15 at Boo Boo’s and slobrew.com; this is also a standing-roomonly show, so bring your strong legs).

POST-PUNK POP Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes plays the SLO Brew Rock Event Center on Feb. 23.

According to their bio, “TV Girl is a sunny, throwback splash of ’60s French pop and Southern California soul. Yet, under that shiny veneer lays a dark heart, beating with sharp wit and cynical alienation, and the music is all the more alluring for it.”

Prodigal daughter returns

Without a doubt, Santa Margarita local Jade Jackson has made it big. She signed with Anti Records and released the album, Gilded, to wide acclaim and excellent reviews. She went on a national tour, opening for Social Distortion under the mentorship of frontman Mike Ness. She performed on national TV when she appeared on CBS This Morning. That didn’t stop her from returning to Santa Margarita to work some shifts at her parents’ restaurant, The Range, to bank a few bucks before her next big tour. Jackson has retained her small-town-girl charm, humility, and warm personality, which will be on display when she plays this Friday, Feb. 22, at Morro Bay’s The Siren (8 p.m.; 21-and-older; $15 presale at Boo Boo’s and ticketfly.com or $17 at the door). Jackson’s a prolific singer-songwriter. In fact, when I last spoke to her about Gilded, she told me she already had a couple more albums’ worth of new material she’d been writing on the road. This will be a wonderful opportunity to see her in an intimate club setting, and it may be your last chance for a while. When I saw her at The Range a few weeks ago, she mentioned that she and her band may be moving south soon to be closer to the LA music scene. Don’t miss your chance to catch Jackson’s soulful, melancholy country songs that will remind you of Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris.

Blues singer-songwriter and guitarist Albert Castiglia brings his hard-core blues, soul, rock, and country sounds to the SLO Vets’ Hall this Saturday, Feb. 23 (7:30 p.m.; 21-and-older; $25 at Boo Boo Records, Cheap Thrills, and Paradise Records, or at the door). Vocally, he’s been compared to Van Morrison, and they certainly share a similar husky quality, though Castiglia has more of an edge. He was born in NYC to a Cuban mother and Italian father, but they relocated to Florida when he was 5, and he took up the guitar at 12. In 1990, he joined the Miami Blues Authority and was named the “best blues guitarist in Miami” by the Miami New Times in 1997. Chicago harmonica player Junior Wells selected Castiglia as his lead guitarist, and after Wells’ death, he joined Atlanta vocalist Sandra Hall’s touring band. In 2002, Castiglia joined the Alligator Alley Allstars, the same year he also began his solo career. He formed his current band in 2017. “Putting my new band together was a pivotal moment and this recent incarnation has really upped my game,” Castiglia said in press materials. “My drummer, Brian Menendez, is very dynamic and gives me that extra spark. Jimmy Pritchard is my bass player and he’s solid as a rock. It’s a power trio with no boundaries or restrictions. You’ll rock out and dance like nobody’s watching.”

Artifacts When in France BY RYAH COOLEY

SLO Children’s Museum announces new exhibits and directors The San Luis Obispo Children’s Museum is currently fundraising for two large-scale exhibits in the works.

Emails From Paris captures local artist’s creative journey

S

he was all alone in a strange, foreign city, with nothing but a new email address and a rickety DSL connection. So S. Kay Burnett wrote, a lot. The year was 1996, email was relatively new to the world, and the city of Paris was brand new to Burnett, who was in France working for a tech firm doing online documentation for six months. It would be about another 11 years before Burnett started painting. It was during her time in Paris, traipsing about the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay, that a love of art was sparked in her, and what began as a slow burn would become a roaring fire. Burnett’s artistic renderings of her time in France, including encaustic paintings and sculptures, are currently on display as the Emails From Paris exhibit at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. “I was a writer, but I wanted to go to all of the museums, and I fell in love with art—Renoir, Monet, and Van Gogh,” the Central Coast artist said. “It was years before I started painting, but I fell in love with art.” Particularly during her early days in Paris, Burnett didn’t know a lot of people, and she got lonely. So she would write emails to friends and family back home about sightseeing or what it was like to be an expat living abroad. While Burnett didn’t paint during this time, she did take a lot of photos, which would become the basis for her paintings of Paris years later. Burnett’s style is colorful, whimsical, and a little bit abstract. Her paintings are just out of focus enough to give them a dreamlike quality, much like the impressionist painters who Burnett first fell in love with all of those years ago. Her piece Toy Boats captures the joy of children playing with makeshift sailboats. The painting To The Beat of the Bass takes Burnett back to her last free Sunday when she was living in Paris, soaking up the music playing at a local market. “It was my last Sunday alone,” Burnett said. “I went to the market, and there was this band playing, and it was as if the market was alive and there were all these smells. It was just kind of a magic moment for me.” And Lunch at Musee d’Orsay shows the iconic clock window at the fine art museum where Burnett would grab lunch at a café after perusing impressionist paintings. When local art aficionados spend time with Burnett’s encaustic paintings and sculptures that make up Emails From Paris, she hopes that it inspires them to maybe take a risk or two in their own lives. “I’m hoping that it makes them remember some of their memories, or encourages them to have an adventure, to do something they’ve always dreamed about doing,” she said. ∆ Arts Writer Ryah Cooley loves Paris in the fall. Contact her at rcooley@newtimesslo.com.

CHILD’S PLAY The encaustic painting, Toy Boats, shows the joy and wonder of small children in Paris playing with their makeshift sailboats.

Emails From Paris, an exhibition of encaustic paintings and sculptures by artist S. Kay Burnett, will be on display at the SLO Museum of Art through March 31. Burnett will also give a talk during Art at High Noon on March 7. Visit sloma.org for more information.

FIRST LOVE It was at the Musee d’Orsay that S. Kay Burnett first fell in love with impressionist painters like Renoir and Degas. After perusing paintings, she would stop at the museum cafe, a moment captured in her painting, Lunch at Musee d’Orsay.

BITTERSWEET On S. Kay Burnett’s last Sunday alone in Paris, a band played while a market went on. The artist later captured that moment in her piece, To the Beat of the Bass.

So when Lynn Schmidt was 22, she left home and joined the U.S. Navy. “I ran away from home,” said Schmidt, who grew up in Washington. “I just was at a time in my life where I could do something bigger than myself, and serving in the military seemed like a logical choice.” It was during her time in the Navy, working as an optical man repairing periscopes and binoculars, that Schmidt got her first camera. It ignited a passion that she forgot about until a move to the Central Coast relit that flame.

Not only is she trapped in rom-com land, it’s a PG-13 rom-com land! Whenever she swears, it’s covered by the sound of a car horn or some other ambient noise. The film’s also filled with homage to a lot of classic moments from rom-coms like When Harry Met Sally and My Best Friend’s Wedding. It’s all a little bit like The Wizard of Oz, where Natalie encounters the same characters from her real life but they’re somehow different in this new world, and like Dorothy, Natalie just wants to get home.

Pick

BEGUILE Ultra rich and handsome Blake (Liam Hemsworth) inexplicably falls for Natalie (Rebel Wilson) when she awakes from a head injury in an alternate universe filled with rom-com clichés.

Alita in its English translated versions. Alita is filled with action sequences that make us all feel good about sticking it to the man, or literally slicing the bad guys in half, but the plot’s delivery falls short. It’s the year 2563, and, after a worldwide war known as The Fall, there are only two remaining cities: Iron City, a dismal dystopia on Earth, and, hovering above it, Zalem, an elite floating city run by Nova (Edward Norton). Apparently no one knows what Zalem is like because no one has been able to go up there since The Fall. All of Zalem’s trash (robotic arms, eyes, chests … you name it) falls down to a scrap yard in Iron City. Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz) is often going through the yard looking for replacement parts for his patients. That’s the weird thing in this postapocalyptic world, which is supposedly the

last city on Earth: a lot of its inhabitants have some sort of robotic body part. On one of his trips, he stumbles upon a live core (head and brain) of a young woman. He gives her a robotic body, one that he was going to give to his wheelchairbound daughter, but she died before he was finished, so he gave it to the core and named her Alita (after his late daughter). Alita doesn’t have a single memory of her past, but she does have an instinct for combat and does not shy away from a fight. Dr. Ido becomes her father figure and quickly tries to shield her from learning of her past. She’s a berserker—a cyborg built for battle—and the last of that kind. Before she discovers her true self, she inevitable falls in love with bad boy Hugo (Keean Johnson) and motorball—a game that resembles football on Rollerblades but you’re not on a team and if you get ripped to pieces,

while also smugly dismissing it, this is the film for you. Anna It’s an easy setup, and while the realities of life in fairy tale land are sometimes a little less than knock-yoursocks-off great, the perks aren’t too shabby either. Sure, Natalie is going to undergo allergy attacks from all the flora, but she’ll also be able to conjure Blake’s phone number from some flower petals in her pocket when she comes down on the wrong side of the law and needs to make a phone call. The film could be easily dismissed as a silly, whimsical work, but Wilson brings the heat and knows how to make the mundane hilarious. She’s the selling point of this flick, and Levine is a great counterpart with his own goofy yet self-confident character. The whole time Natalie thinks she has to make someone fall in love with her for the rom-com world to end, and of course in the end, she realizes the importance of loving yourself before seeking love from others. The new confident and capable Natalie is ready to take on the world, kiss the dude, and kick ass. Bottom line: It may not be as great as a truly solid rom-com like Pretty Woman or When Harry Met Sally, but it’s a fun trip, with Wilson taking the wheel and delivering up some pretty solid comedy. ∆ Split Screen is written by Senior Staff Writer Glen Starkey and his wife, Anna.

REVIEW SCORING FULL PRICE .... It’s worth the price of an evening showing MATINEE ........ Save a few bucks, catch an afternoon showing RENT IT .......... It’s worth a rental STREAM IT ..... Wait ’til Netflix has it NOTHING ........ Don’t waste your time too bad so freaking sad, because you’re poor and probably can’t afford good replacement parts. The catch of motorball is that if you get to the championship games and win, you have a chance to go up to Zalem. Throughout the film, the ruler of Zalem, Nova, has these weird glasses that not only make his eyeballs look freakishly microscopic, they give him the ability to look through the eyes of people in Iron City. He’s constantly keeping an eye on (and basically being a puppeteer of) certain people, so he’s a futuristic Big Brother. While the overall plot of the film is interesting, about an hour was spent on just hashing out Alita taking in her new body and world. It didn’t leave much time for the end, which felt extremely abrupt and, of course, left us on a cliffhanger. I think that once Alita finds out who she is and the mission she’s had since her creation,

it becomes overshadowed by her infatuation of Hugo—she’s in love, we get it. When I first saw the trailers for this movie I was extremely skeptical because of its animation and Alita’s ginormous eyeballs, but it really took me back to A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Similar to that film is the cliché sentiment of “Can a human love a robot?” and vice versa. The storylines within Alita, and there are a few, aren’t revolutionary, but I’m here for the in-yourface action scenes, which are spectacular. I will say that if there is a sequel in the works, I won’t be mad about it and would definitely see it in theaters. (122 min.) —Karen Garcia

I usually don’t like when sequels, especially horror and sci-fi films, try to explain phenomena that occurred in their predecessors (for example, 2010: The Year We Make Contact added too much literal context to the abstract final minutes of 2001: A Space Odyssey). Most monoliths and other cinematic mysteries are just better left unsolved. Having said that, I actually wasn’t bothered at all by this sequel’s explanation for the time looping. In fact, I loved it. It’s meant to be schlocky on purpose, which ties into the satirical nature of both films. I won’t give anything away, except that it’s very Back To The Future referential, another big boost in my book. While the original was both a slasher film and a satire of the genre, in the same vein as Scream, Happy Death Day 2U upholds the comedic approach but turns it up to 11, almost to the point of becoming a flat-out spoof. If you’ve seen the trailers, I’m sure you already know what I mean—the shot of a group of skydivers exiting their plane one by one followed by Tree, wearing nothing but underwear and noticeably without a parachute, says it all. That’s just one of Tree’s many suicides that included chugging drain cleaner and leaping headfirst into a woodchipper, featured in a montage (appropriately set to “Hard Times” by Paramore) after she finds herself trapped in the time loop again. Cue the next song: “Let’s Do the Time Warp Again!” (100 min.) —Caleb Wiseblood

the Chrysler Building and display signs of physical pain at even the slightest glance—as if it’s the eye of Sauron. Other days he’s able to fearlessly glare at the tower while shouting obscenities toward his sworn enemy. “You know it’s bullshit, right? It’s not reality,” one woman tells Caveman after she hears him spewing his tall tales. “No, of course not,” he replies. “Stuyvesant’s much truer than reality. Stuyvesant invented reality.” Caveman believes Stuyvesant is the source of all evil—“tax collectors, police brutality, drug wars, backed-up toilets,” in his own words. The only time he’s not thinking about how much he hates Stuyvesant is when he’s composing music, taking notes on whatever stationary is available to him when a melodic epiphany strikes. It’s revealed early on that Caveman was a Juilliardtrained pianist before retreating from his career, his family, and society as a whole in favor of the cave he would call his home. What makes The Caveman’s Valentine worth watching isn’t so much that it’s a compelling mystery—although it’s definitely not a boring one. The real reason to give it a chance is Jackson’s dedicated performance. It’s as if Thanos snapped his fingers long before Avengers: Infinity War, as Jackson faces a similar fate to that of his Nick Fury character— he completely disappears into the role.

OSCAR NOMINATED SHORTS (LIVE ACTION)

What’s it rated? Not rated What’s it worth? Rent it Where’s it showing? The Palm Is it a requirement that for a live action short film to be nominated for an Oscar, it has to emotionally devastate the audience? Seriously, that’s all viewers could assume after leaving the theater having sat through all five of these shorts up for the Academy Award. Don’t get me wrong, each film is a quality piece in its own right, but I can’t recommend a single viewing of all five—they’re all too sad, dark, and upsetting in their own awardworthy ways. The five films are Madre (Spain), Fauve (Canada), Marguerite (Canada), Detainment (Ireland), and Skin (U.S.). Madre is about a young mother who receives what at first seems like an innocuous phone call from her 6-year-old son but is actually a frightening call for help. Fauve follows two young boys horsing around near an open pit mine—but their playful competition turns perilous. Marguerite is about an elderly woman who opens up about her true, repressed sexuality to her younger lesbian caretaker. Detainment brings to life the police interrogations of the two British boys responsible for abducting, torturing, and murdering toddler James Bulger in 1993 (a true story). Skin portrays a white supremacist father, his relationship with his skinhead gang and his young son, and the repercussions that follow his racist beating of a black man at a grocery store. Uplifted yet? All five films tackle worthy subject areas, and I actually liked them all individually except Detainment, which I thought was a bit salacious without accomplishing much. But they’re all truly, incredibly harrowing, even the piece on the elder’s repressed sexuality, which just made you feel deeply sad for her. Madre was my favorite of the lot, as it showcased a spellbinding performance from Marta Nieto, the distraught and helpless mother on the phone with her son in trouble. I do love that The Palm is playing these hard-to-find short films for the public. My recommendation? Go check out the animation and documentary nominees over the weekend. Save the live action

Finding sincere bliss Rainn Wilson and Shabnam Mogharabi bring SoulPancake’s philosophy of joy to Cal Poly

A

lmost all of the seats are filled in the Chumash Auditorium on the Cal Poly campus Feb. 13. The room is buzzing with the talk of students recounting their day, a test they bombed (lingo for didn’t do well on, for those not in the know), or a Snapchat they received from someone they like. The students are in attendance for the Associated Students Inc. event, For the Love of Joy, a speaking engagement with SoulPancake co-founder Rainn Wilson and General Manager Shabnam Mogharabi. SoulPancake is a media and entertainment company that tells the stories of human connection through online content—mainly videos. Before I go on, let me say if you’re reading this thinking I’ll write just about Wilson because he played the role of Dwight Schrute on The Office, then you can take your paper needs elsewhere because that salesman hasn’t pushed reams of paper since 2013. Now that that’s out of our systems, Wilson not only started the positivestorytelling platform, he also has a hand in its content. But the real orchestrator is Mogharabi. She shares with the young adult audience that she’s learned that joy is one of the most powerful and rebellious things a person can do or have.

Why should people care about joy when there’s so much negativity happening locally, nationally, and globally? Mogharabi says there are so many distractions—from social media, to news, to politics—but it’s all noise that makes it hard for us as individuals to listen to ourselves. She asks the audience to take out their phones, open up a Google web browser, type in “college makes me feel,” and to shout the results they get from their phones. There are various answers, but they’re all negative: depressed, suicidal, like a failure, hopeless, and lonely. It’s been four years since I graduated college, and honestly I can say most of the time I don’t miss it. It just reminds me of the anxiety of working on multiple projects, working full time, and trying my hand at being a DJ on KCPR, while simultaneously balancing my relationships with friends and family. I was trying to get the most out of my two years, as I was a transfer. That seems to be an age-old theme that all college students can relate to: exhausting yourself to get the full college experience. That way you’re hopefully prepared for what comes next. It’s not a new concept, but it’s something almost everyone goes through and somehow

navigates in order to get their degree. Mogharabi says through the thick of it we forget how to dial in what brings us and others joy. It’s not too late to turn that around. For starters it’s OK to be joyful; it’s not taboo. People often think that if you’re joyful you’re naïve, she said, but that’s not the case. After that barrier she said some tips to get on the joy train are having gratitude, being authentic, and not comparing yourself to others. Let’s break this down: While you might be grateful that your mom has been your role model, tell her you’re thankful for her—show your gratitude. In terms of authenticity, don’t wear a shirt that says “authentic” on it and call it a day. Be genuine in your actions toward others and

yourself. Comparing yourself to others is the thief of joy. You’ll never attain joy if you’re constantly finding yourself saying, “I like her hair better than mine,” or “Her project was way better than mine.” When I look back at my college days, I had a lot of these moments: forgetting to give gratitude, not being authentic with myself, and comparing myself to others. I was just too busy trying to get things done. Now that I’m out of that mindset, I realize that I now, more than ever, show gratitude toward my parents, the two people who have really molded me into the adult I am. I try to be authentic with the people around me and stay true to myself daily. I admire people for their characteristics and traits, but I try not to compare myself to others, because we’re all different. With all that in mind, I can really appreciate the things that bring me joy: long phone conversations with my mom (she lives out of the area); cooking a meal with my boyfriend; and enjoying the outdoors with friends. There are so many actions and things that bring me joy, but I think when I’m listening to others, I can appreciate their thoughts. I’ve found they are glad when I lend an ear. There’s a lot of joy in that for me. I hope the students in that auditorium take a minute to really think about their hectic schedules and reconfigure them. Find some time to experience joy. ∆ Staff Writer Karen Garcia is letting in some joy at kgarcia@newtimesslo.com.

eople who say they don’t like wine—they’re dead to me,” the Goddess of Wine announced to 10 students gathered in Atascadero’s Fossil Wine Bar on a recent Monday night. It’s a bold statement to make. But I get it. Later in the evening, Denise Lowe asked the group who didn’t like chardonnay. As two hands went up and several heads nodded, my brain quietly said, “Me.” It’s all that butter. My mouth can’t hang. I want to scrape it off my tongue, try to put it back in the bottle, and then ask the world for that few minutes of my life back. “There’s a lot of wine out there for you to taste. Why would you limit yourself? You just might not like the style of what you’ve tasted,” Lowe said, pointing to the two wines before the Wine 101 students. One was a “new world” chardonnay from Kíta Wines in Santa Barbara County, the other was an “old world” Chablis from Domaine Long-Depaquit in France—also a chardonnay, but named for the specific region. “When we talk about old world wines, we talk about region,” Lowe said. “Unlike here, where we can grow whatever the hell we want, the French have rules.” Rules or not, neither the old world nor the new world wine was over-oaked or over-buttered. The ladies who volunteered their dislike for chardonnay did indeed change their tune. I’ll admit, I have had chardonnays that I actually like. They may be few and far between, but they’re out there.

she gets to work remotely, and Zuniga was drawn into North County’s biggest industry. “I’ve fallen in love with it—even though everyone’s in competition and trying to make the next great bottle of wine, it doesn’t feel like it,” Zuniga said. “It sort of feels like an extended wine family.” However, he said, there’s only so far you can move up at a boutique, familyowned winery. The next step for his second career was either to move over to a bigger, corporate operation or start a new wine label. Then, he worked with Thomas Booth at the Wine Boss, which inspired him to think a little bit differently. Curating a wine list and interacting with customers in his very own wine bar turned out to be exactly what he wanted to do. “I taste almost everything that I have on the menu,” Zuniga said, adding that he has boutique, garagiste, Central Coast wines and brews (on tap). “My job is to make sure we have a nice wine list.” Zuniga stood at the bar with a 1-ounce taster of Dragonette sauvignon blanc in his glass, swirling it and listening to the Wine Goddess as she spoke about taste receptors on your tongue and in your nose. Lowe said this class is all about overcoming the mysteries of wine. “Stick your nose deep in the wine and take a big sniff … .

They held walk-in interviews on Feb. 20 and are holding another one on Feb. 21 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton at 333 Madonna Road in San Luis Obispo from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. The first Sprouts opened in 2002 with the goal of making “natural foods available to everyone.” Today, there are more than 300 stores. “Think of Sprouts as all of the very best parts of a real farmers market under one roof, open every day of the week,” the company states on its website (learn more at sprouts.com) … On March 1, the Wellness Kitchen in Templeton will be set up and ready to serve in its commercial kitchen again, 1255 Las Tablas Road, suite 102. The nonprofit closed temporarily after a fire in October damaged the kitchen. The Wellness Kitchen resumed its weekly therapeutic meal program in December thanks to the help of the Atascadero Bible Church’s commercial kitchen and hosted its monthly healthy cooking classes at Idler’s in Paso Robles, but it is ready to return home! From March 11 through 15, the kitchen will host a grand re-opening appreciation week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with samples of healing tea, plus opportunities to purchase grab-n-go deli lunch items, sign up for classes, and order meals (learn more at thewkrc.org).

GROWING AND GROWING

New Times Staff Writer Karen Garcia and I have been talking about Spam a lot lately. Yes, that is the processed meat that comes out of a can. Before you judge us, though, listen up to what we’ve been salivating over. Spam musubi. A thick slice of freshly opened Spam, fried up in teriyaki sauce. Slide that delicious morsel of mystery meat onto a bed of freshly packed sushi rice, wrap a piece of nori around it, brush it with more teriyaki sauce. Are you with me? No? Well, you should be, because it’s good. It’s a mouthwatering pick-me-up. You could make it yourself, or you could head on down to Santa Maria and stop into Zoe’s Hawaiian BBQ, where the Spam musubi is fresh and only $2.50 a piece. They also have Double “D” Spam Musubi, which is two pieces of fried Spam, and musubi made with teriyaki beef, teriyaki chicken, or Portuguese sausauge (which is calling my name). But, you can also choose to go hog, cow, and chicken wild with The Big One. It’s an all of the above meat attack served with seasoned white rice and wrapped in seaweed. Go big or go home, people. The Big One weighs in at $8.50. For that and other Hawaiian delights, visit Zoe’s at 2880 Santa Maria Way in Santa Maria. Visit zoeshawaiianbarbecue.com to get your taste buds ready to eat. ∆

Get on the trail: Farmstead Ed is on the SLO County Farm Trail, and the farm trail map is ready for your viewing pleasure at farmsteaded.com. Stepladder Ranch, Hartley Farms, Templeton Valley Farms, Windrose Farm, Harmony Lavender, The Groves on 41, Chaparral Gardens, Giving Tree Family Farm, and Talley Farms Fresh Harvest are waiting for your visit (contact the farms directly to schedule a rendezvous) … The Wine History Project of SLO County has an exhibit up for your viewing pleasure at the El Paso de Robles Area Historical Society. Seeking Gold, Finding Grapes is a collection of rare bottles and tools from the California Gold Rush. View it on Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (800 12th St. in Paso’s Downtown Park) … Paso Robles is starting a grocery store! Or trying to at least. The Paso Food Co-op is working its way to a goal of 500 members. When the co-op reaches 200 members, it will start searching for a site to plop on down, and it was only eight members away from that milestone on Feb. 20. “Envision your own grocery store,” the co-op’s website states. “It’s stocked to fully represent the local, fresh, and healthy products produced in and around San Luis Obispo County.” Sounds pretty neat (check out its website at pasofoodcooperative.com to learn more). ∆

Rob Brezsny’s Free Will Astrology Homework: Choose one area of your life where you’re going to stop pretending. Report results to freewillastrology.com. ARIES (March 21-April 19): In December 1915, the California city of San Diego was suffering from a drought. City officials hired a professional “moisture accelerator” named Charles Hatfield, who promised to make it rain. Soon Hatfield was shooting explosions of a secret blend of chemicals into the sky from the top of a tower. The results were quick. A deluge began in early January of 1916 and persisted for weeks. Thirty inches of rain fell, causing floods that damaged the local infrastructure. The moral of the story, as far as you’re concerned, Aries: When you ask for what you want and need, specify exactly how much you want and need. Don’t make an open-ended request that could bring you too much of a good thing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Actors Beau Bridges and Jeff Bridges are brothers born to parents who were also actors. When they were growing up, they already had aspirations to follow in their mom’s and dad’s footsteps. From an early age, they summoned a resourceful approach to attracting an audience. Now and then they would start a pretend fight in a store’s parking lot. When a big enough crowd had gathered to observe their shenanigans, they would suddenly break off from their faux struggle, grab their guitars from their truck, and begin playing music. In the coming weeks, I hope you’ll be equally ingenious as you brainstorm about ways to expand your outreach.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): According to Edward Barnard’s book New York City Trees, a quarter of the city is shaded by its 5.2 million trees. In other words, one of the most densely populated, frantically active places on the planet has a rich collection of oxygen-generating greenery. There’s even a virgin forest at the upper tip of Manhattan, as well as five botanical gardens and the 843-acre Central Park. Let’s use all this bounty-amidst-the-bustle as a symbol of what you should strive to foster in the coming weeks: refreshing lushness and grace interspersed throughout your busy, hustling rhythm.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): As a poet myself, I regard good poetry as highly useful. It can nudge us free of our habitual thoughts and provoke us to see the world in ways we’ve never imagined. On the other hand, it’s not useful in the same way that food and water and sleep are. Most people don’t get sick if they are deprived of poetry. But I want to bring your attention to a poem that is serving a very practical purpose in addition to its inspirational function. Simon Armitage’s poem “In Praise of Air” is on display in an outdoor plaza at Sheffield University. The material it’s printed on is designed to literally remove a potent pollutant from the atmosphere. And what does this have to do with you? I suspect that in the coming weeks you will have an extra capacity to generate blessings that are like Armitage’s poem: useful in both practical and inspirational ways.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In 1979, psychologist Dorothy Tennov published her book Love and Limerence: The Experience of Being in Love. She defined her newly coined word “limerence” as a state of adoration that may generate intense, euphoric, and obsessive feelings for another person. Of all the signs in the zodiac, you Leos are most likely to be visited by this disposition throughout 2019. And you’ll be especially prone to it in the coming weeks. Will that be a good thing or a disruptive thing? It all depends on how determined you are to regard it as a blessing, have fun with it, and enjoy it regardless of whether or not your feelings are reciprocated. I advise you to enjoy the hell out of it!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Based in Switzerland, Nestle is the largest food company in the world. Yet it pays just $200 per year to the state of Michigan for the right to suck up 400 million gallons of groundwater, which it bottles and sells at a profit. I nominate this vignette to be your cautionary tale in

the coming weeks. How? 1. Make damn sure you are being fairly compensated for your offerings. 2. Don’t allow huge, impersonal forces to exploit your resources. 3. Be tough and discerning, not lax and naïve, as you negotiate deals.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Sixteenth-century Italian artist Daniele da Volterra wasn’t very famous for his own painting and sculpture. The work for which we remember him today is the alterations he made to Michelangelo’s giant fresco The Last Judgment, which spreads across an entire wall in the Sistine Chapel. After Michelangelo died, the Catholic Church hired da Volterra to “fix” the scandalous aspects of the people depicted in the master’s work. He painted clothes and leaves over the originals’ genitalia and derrieres. In accordance with astrological omens, I propose that we make da Volterra your anti-role model for the coming weeks. Don’t be like him. Don’t engage in cover-ups, censorship, or camouflage. Instead, specialize in the opposite: revelations, unmaskings, and expositions.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What is the quality of your access to life’s basic necessities? How well do you fulfill your need for good food and drink, effective exercise, deep sleep, thorough relaxation, mental stimulation, soulful intimacy, a sense of meaningfulness, nourishing beauty, and rich feelings? I bring these questions to your attention, Scorpio, because the rest of 2019 will be an excellent time for you to fine-tune and expand your relationships with these fundamental blessings. And now is an excellent time to intensify your efforts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Michael Jackson’s 1982 song “Beat It” climbed to No. 3 on the record-sales charts in Australia. On the other hand, “Weird Al” Yankovic’s 1984 parody of Jackson’s tune, “Eat It,” reached No. 1 on the same charts. Let’s use this twist as a metaphor that’s a good fit for your life in the coming weeks. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you may find that a stand-in or substitute or imitation will be more successful than the original. And that will be auspicious!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The Space Needle in Seattle, Washington is 605 feet high and 138 feet wide: a tall and narrow tower. Near the top is a round restaurant that makes one complete rotation every 47 minutes. Although this part of the structure weighs 125 tons, for many years its motion was propelled by a mere 1.5 horsepower motor. I think you will have a comparable power at your disposal in the coming weeks: an ability to cause major movement with a compact output of energy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1941, the Ford automobile company created a “biological car.” Among its components were “bioplastics” composed of soybeans, hemp, flax, wood pulp, and cotton. It weighed a thousand pounds less than a comparable car made of metal. This breakthrough possibility never fully matured, however. It was overshadowed by newly abundant plastics made from petrochemicals. I suspect that you Aquarians are at a phase with a resemblance to the biological car. Your good idea is promising but unripe. I hope you’ll spend the coming weeks devoting practical energy to developing it. (P.S. There’s a difference between you and your personal equivalent of the biological car: little competition.)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Cartographers of Old Europe sometimes drew pictures of strange beasts in the uncharted regions of their maps. These were warnings to travelers that such areas might harbor unknown risks, like dangerous animals. One famous map of the Indian Ocean shows an image of a sea monster lurking, as if waiting to prey on sailors traveling through its territory. If I were going to create a map of the frontier you’re now headed for, Pisces, I would fill it with mythic beasts of a more benevolent variety, like magic unicorns, good fairies, and wise centaurs. ∆
